Interview with Dennis Jose (@91_josed)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

While I was pursuing my education in London , I had heard about Bitcoin from a friend in 2011. It was around 1$ at that time. However the concept of digital currencies at that time seemed foreign to me and I was not convinced of it. Later, while I was working as a strategy consultant in PWC, I started hearing more about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. Then in 2017 Bitcoin went on a wild run and touched 17,500$, I knew then that this was it for me and that this is the future. I’ve not looked back since.

Can you share the most interest in exciting happened to you since you started doing this?

There’s a lot of interesting stories that’s happened over the past couple of years. In fact there’s enough to write an entire book about. The travels, the people that I have met , the knowledge that I’ve gained are immense. One funny story that happened in the not so distant past was regarding Meme stocks. I had invested around 20,000$ in one coin and my said investment in this coin pumped to around 7.2 Million $ in a matter of 4 days! The adrenaline, the emotions were just too overwhelming and didn’t think to cash out. A few days later, you can imagine what happened..

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

The most important thing I would say is to be passionate about what you do. When there is passion, there’s no alternative but to thrive. Also aim on creating Value. When value creation occurs success is a surety. Also it’s important to live in the moment and take some time to enjoy life as it passes by.

 None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

The most important thing I would say is to be passionate about what you do. When there is passion, there’s no alternative but to thrive. Also aim on creating Value. When value creation occurs success is a surety. Also it’s important to live in the moment and take some time to enjoy life as it passes by.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

I have been involved in giving back ever since my parents instilled this trait in me. I have volunteered in Uganada to teach English to kids, besides donations to a lot of charitable foundations. children and homeless animals occupy a special place in my heart and in the coming years I want to set up schools for underprivileged children and shelters for homeless animals in emerging countries

Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

Always believe in yourself. When I left my Job in 2017, and announced to my family and friends that I was going to pursue blockchain and cryptocurrency, all the people closest to me thought I had lost my mind. Not a single person who was dear to me supported me in my endevour because they could not understand this technology – rather they called it a scam. However, I did not let that get to me and relentlessly continued on my path because I hard firm self belief and the rest is history.
