What inspired you to start Seeds?
From there, I started to think reflect more on the roots of the systemic discrimination baked into institutional finance. I made a documentary about the impact of microloans on women around the world, which we shot on 4 continents. I was interested in them because they benefitted women who were ignored by the traditional banking system – and these women were a fantastic investment, repaying the loans nearly 100% of the time.
You used profits from Bitcoin to fund your company. Can you tell us about that?
What is Ethereum and why do I need to use it to make seeds token purchase?
If you Wikipedia it, it’ll tell you that “Ethereum is an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed computing platform and operating system featuring smart contract functionality.”
This can make for a lot of exciting possibilities, and in our case, smart contract functionality allowed us to make our own Ethereum-based cryptocurrency using Ethereum’s programming language, Solidity.
Thus, you need ETH to make a Seeds token transfer by design.
Do you have a wellness practice? If so, has that been beneficial to you as a founder?
It’s been a gradual process, but over the past 5 years I’ve deepened my practice such that I now sit for over 2 hours every day, which would’ve sounded completely crazy to me not too long ago.
My hope is that Seeds will be as successful as I believe we can be, so that people all around the world are using Seeds tokens to get the support they need to no longer feel trapped in undesirable situations for financial reasons.
