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.
