Get To Know The CoinCorner Team: Danny Scott – Co-Founder
At CoinCorner, we’ve always been transparent about who we are and what we do.
In this feature, we want you to get to know each team member a little better… If Danny could have dinner with any one person, who would it be? If Liam could have one superpower, what would he choose? What is Phil’s favourite food?
Danny Scott – CoinCorner Co-Founder
If you could have dinner with any one person (living or dead) who would it be? Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you have and why? Can I take a boat and a captain to drive me home?
What is your favourite food? Enchiladas and Nachos.
Where would you like to travel to that you have never been? Cayman Islands is top of my list, hopefully I’ll get the chance to visit there soon!
If you had to choose to live without one of your five senses, which one would you give up? It would have to be taste. As much as I love food, I think that losing one of the other senses would be a struggle for every day life.
Why did you choose your profession? I’ve always played around with computers since I was a kid, more on the PC side of things than the console, but it wasn’t until I was about 19 when I started programming, purely out of my interest for computers and getting lucky in a job role.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Flying. We live on the Isle of Man, so it would be nice to be able to fly off easily when I needed/wanted to.
What was your motivating factor to begin working with Bitcoin? I was interested because it was a new technology, but honestly really got hands on when the price began to move.
Has the path of bitcoin turned out the way you thought it would (so far)? Initially, I expected what the media said would happen: that Bitcoin would take a ‘rocket to the moon’, but very quickly, I learned more about the industry and saw as with any new technology or concept, that things take time to be adopted. I still expect for Bitcoin to take some years before wide spread adoption, but I believe it will come in time.
Where do you see Bitcoin in 5 years from now? If someone had asked me back in 2000 where the Internet would be in 5 years time, I would not have predicted the beginning of social media as it just wasn’t on the radar. If I predict something now and it comes true, I’ll look like a genius, however if I get it wrong I’ll just get lost in the crowds of people guessing right now. So my answer is I’ll wait and see.
