Tim van Rijt

  My name is Tim van Rijt, born in the Netherlands in 1985. I have worked in the online advertising industry for over 8 years. My interest in innovating and testing new opportunities paved the way to become Head of Innovation. I have had a fascination for cryptocurrency since 2014. I stepped into crypto right before the Mt. Gox hack, seeing the value of my portfolio decrease and eventually took my losses. Early 2017, I saw a new opportunity with Ethereum, buying in at $10 per coin. With my upcoming wedding, I cashed out when Ethereum was around $18, only to see the price rise up to $400 per coin. This summed up the start of my crypto career: bad timing. In my spare time, I love watching football (soccer for Americans). I support Manchester United and local team Roda JC. I also enjoy playing either FIFA or Fortnite on my Playstation.
