CoinCorner's Views on the News tries to debunk many misleading news stories, along with giving an industry insiders view on the hottest topics and stories from around the bitcoin world.

Get To Know The CoinCorner Team: Ross – Marketing

The CoinCorner team is growing rapidly, and 3 new employees have joined the team since we last did ‘Meet the Staff’. That means we have some catching up to do as we have Rachael, Joel and myself to get to know a little better, as well as Molly who managed to work here for months without doing hers.

Who is Rachael’s dream dinner date? What would Joel bring to a deserted island? Why did Molly choose to go into bitcoin? This feature will help you learn a little more about the CoinCorner staff, next up is yours truly…

My Meet the staff 2

If you could have dinner with one person (living or dead) who would it be?

As a massive basketball fan I’ll go with Michael Jordan. Not only is he (in my opinion) the best sportsperson of all time, he is also a successful businessman. I’m sure I could talk to him for hours.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you have and why?

1.  A basketball hoop + basketball

2. A LOT of Brazilian guava flavour Lucozade

3. A parasol or something that I could sit under to be in the shade. I’m not great in extreme sunlight/high temperatures for extended periods of time.

What is your favourite food?

I have never been able to give a definite answer to this question. I’ll go with sweet potato fries I think.

Where would you like to travel to that you have never been?

I love South America, in particular Peru and Bolivia. My sister’s travelling pictures sparked the desire for me to go travelling one day, and the pictures she has of places like Machu Picchu and Salar de Uyuni look amazing.

If you had to choose to live without one of your five senses, which one would you give up?

I guess I’d go for smell, but I’m not sure why.

Why did you choose your profession?

Marketing has been the most interesting area of business for me since I started doing Business Studies back in school. The marketing modules of my degree just further solidified my choice to go into it. I just think it’s really interesting, fun and gives you a chance to be creative.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

I think the power of healing narrowly edges out time travel.

What was your motivating factor to begin working with Bitcoin?

Before I applied to CoinCorner I didn’t know much about it, and looking into it I thought it was a really interesting concept. I’m enjoying learning more about it every day.

Has the path of bitcoin turned out the way you thought it would (so far)?

I think so, after doing my research I kind of expected it to grow, I just wasn’t expecting it to grow so quickly!

Where do you see Bitcoin 5 years from now?

Technology is always changing and is impossible to predict, I do think bitcoin will have continued it’s growth and will be accepted as a form of payment in more places though.
