"When complacency prevails, enlightenment dissipates"

Dan started his first company at the age of 15 with $1000 and built it up to over $2M/year as a freshman in college. He has had two prior exits and his companies have generated tens of millions in revenue to date. He was the creator of Pairade, the popular celebrity-focused media website ranked by Alexa as one of the top 500 highest trafficked sites in the world. Pairade was responsible for monetizing the digital following of some of the largest influencers in the world including: The Kardashians, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, and hundreds more. Dan is fluent in three languages including English, Portuguese, and Spanish. He has established his brand across several verticals in tech and media, amassing a personal following of nearly 1,200,000.

His latest venture Current, focuses on mass Millennial and Gen Z cryptocurrency adoption through an incentive-based media streaming ecosystem. Current is a media platform, a utility token, and a protocol that makes adoption of cryptocurrency as easy as pressing play. Current removes the barrier to entry for cryptocurrency ownership by rewarding anyone who streams media. Gen Z and Millennials are driving the unprecedented adoption and growth of streaming media platforms with deeper and more frequent interactions across video and music services. By leveraging this massive daily habit, Current created a consumer-friendly way to earn cryptocurrency that can be used immediately on the platform. Using the Current token requires no prior knowledge of blockchain technology, no cryptocurrency holdings, and no change in behavior as they are rewarded by streaming from the networks they already love.
