Ambassador interview: Christoph Heuermann


Teil drei unserer Interviewserie mit Bitnations internationalen Botschaftern, dieses Mal mit Christoph Heuermann.


Erik: Hallo Christoph, erzähl uns etwas über dich, wo kommst du her und was hat dich auf Kryptotechnologie und Freiheit aufmerksam gemacht?


Christoph: Hallo Erik! Ich komme aus der ostwestfälischen Stadt Herford und habe in Konstanz am Bodensee Politikwissenschaften studiert, bevorzuge aber meine Zeit in anderen Ländern zu verbringen. So reise ich im Moment durch Zentralamerika, mein momentaner Aufenthaltsort ist die Isla Holbox in Mexiko. Reisen ist für mich ein Weg zur Freiheit – ich glaube nicht an Gruppenanstrengungen über Politik und Soziale Bewegungen um die Gesellschaft nach seinen Gunsten zu gestalten.

Ambassador interview: Christoph Heuermann


Part three of our interview series with Bitnation’s international ambassadors, this time with Christoph Heuermann.


Erik: Hey Christoph, tell us a bit about yourself, where are you from and what has caught your interest in crypto technology and liberty?


Christoph: Hi Erik! I was born in Westphalia, Herford, and got my Political Science degree in Constance, right next to the beautiful Lake Constance, but I prefer to spend my time in other coutnries than Germany. Therefore, I’m currently travelling all the way through Central America, having a good time on Isla Holbox, Mexico. Travelling is my path to freedom – I don’t believe in political or social group efforts to change society for the better.

Ambassador interview: Pedro Rivera


Part two of our interview series with Bitnation’s ambassadors, this time Pedro Rivera:


Erik: Hello Pedro, could you first tell us a bit about yourself please? Where are you from and what has gotten you into crypto-technology and liberty?


Pedro: Well, I’m an engineer and I’m from Colombia. I want to serve my people with my profession, I’m engineer and I know about technology. I started with crypto-technologies because I saw it as a technical means to achieve a better social organization for the society I live in, by creating tools that can help us to manage difficult situations.
