Simon has contributed to several open source projects in the blockchain space since 2011: from payment channels, OpenBazaar, newer '2.0' platforms, up to creating a token-based decentralized band, called The Cypherfunks. He has appeared on South African national TV news, German radio and gave several talks about Bitcoin: including Nedgroup Investment's national convention in South Africa.
Before Bitcoin, he graduated with MA (cum laude) in Socio-Informatics from Stellenbosch University (with help from MIH Media Lab) and created 2 successful sites used by more than a million people (Tweekly.fm & TwimeMachine).
He is currently writing a book on the use of the blockchain for a new future of decentralized systems: from marketplaces & law to virtual reality & AI.
