    Yves La Rose

    Yves began his journey into technology at a very young age, building his first computer at 6 years old and programming his first game at the age of 7. He always had a deep ideological relationship with computers and the role he imagined them playing in decentralization. He began his university studies in software engineering, but quickly realized the human aspect was where his heart resided. After completing studies in psychology and pure sciences, he bridged the gap by focusing on perceptual and computational neuropsychology, taking his skills to Japan where he resided for six years, helping shape the minds of a generation as an early childhood educator. He is passionate about blockchain technology and the decentralized future that it will bring.
