First experience with cryptocurrencies
Meghan was skeptical when she learned about cryptocurrencies two and a half years ago through her involvement in precious metals. After further research, she concluded cryptocurrencies made applied voluntary societies more of a reality than other forms of activism. She realized it could be a force for good, particularly after speaking with Jason King of Sean’s Outpost. She says cryptocurrencies for her are less about making money and more about remittances and direct action.
Role in the Bitcoin community
Meghan is a writer, speaker and activist with Bitcoin charities, which is where she spends most of her energy evangelizing. She says she views Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as a way to spread peace and prosperity to those most in need through charity groups and individualized direct action.
