His crowning glory isn't found in the annals of medical journals but in the resurrection of a once-dying Private Career College.

Within the company, he has established himself as the go-to educator for trading-specific material.

He is totally committed to decentralized finance, and sees it as a natural step in the evolution of finance.
“DeFi provides an alternative to the traditional banking industry and gives individuals more freedom. As humans, we are naturally inclined to desire freedom.”
Rob got his start in crypto in 2013 mining dogecoin on his laptop while at Portland State University .
This naturally led to a graduate degree in blockchain and business, culminating in his selection for a prestigious Fellowship with the Global Blockchain Business Council.
From 2014 to 2017, he volunteered to help develop a small altcoin, ultimately growing the value of the coin fifty-fold.
Since then he has been advising a startup working on a blockchain solution to proof of provenance for digital audio files.
He's also an active user of DeFi, and has already granted himself the power to "be his own bank"- a power we at Decentralized Masters want for everyone.
And when he's not banking on the blockchain, Rob is a gifted musician who has produced five albums of his own music- and plays Irish Traditional Flute in a pub band in Portland, Oregon.
Rob is totally committed to DeFi, and sees it as the only future for finance and banking: "The level of efficiency DeFi brings to existing financial services is so extraordinary that it is inevitable that the Invisible Hand will move more activity to the ecosystem."
Rami is passionate about customer-focused solutions to difficult problems.
And he first brought that passion to the pharma industry. There he used his expertise in business architecture to create industry-first AI to streamline operations for Pfizer, Roche and AbbVie.
But he's also passionate about crypto- and has dreamed of teaching and mentoring others in this new technology since the very first day he learned of it.
And that is why he created a non-profit solely focused on teaching crypto for free.
But joining Decentralized Masters now allows him to marry his love of teaching and his unshakeable belief in blockchain. Since then he has mentored numerous people to make life-changing money in crypto.
The future of DeFi is bright- as he says: "DeFi is absolutely inevitable. Markets always choose efficiency, and DeFi proves that banks and financial intermediaries only introduce bloat and siphon profits. DeFi removes the need for such institutions to exist, enabling capital to be optimally allocated"
Preston is an entrepreneur and early mentor, builder and investor within Crypto and DeFi for over 7 years.
Preston's earliest start in Crypto was mining Bitcoin out of his closet whilst in high school in 2012. Initially, Preston was amazed by blockchain technology, and the idea that it gave humans a chance to interact with finance in a way not previously available. Preston enjoyed his time exploring Bitcoin and all things blockchain, but in 2015 however, Preston enlisted in the US Army as an Intelligence Analyst.
Preston would go on to spend ~7 years in active duty military, achieving the distinguished rank of Staff Sergeant (E-6) before being honorably discharged a decorated combat veteran in 2022. Whilst on his final tour to Kandahar, Afghanistan in 2019, Preston was assigned to a 12-man group; Team 3223 of the 3rd SFAB unit. On this deployment, Preston helped design, mentor and integrate the first ever Bitcoin and Blockchain Infrastructure into Afghan National Army and Kandahar Police standard operating procedures.
After returning stateside to his wife and newborn son in 2020, Preston went on to launch a Veteran-exclusive Crypto and Financial Education Company - Ares Investing LLC. Similar to the Decentralized Masters vision, Preston was demystifying and democratizing access to Crypto and DeFi Intelligence, but for historically underserved communities within the US Military.
At Saidler, Preston was directly in charge of leading research efforts within digital assets, to help the portfolio manager make investment decisions within Crypto. The portfolio had an outstanding return of over 47% during Preston's tenure, and would go on to publish weekly research articles that would help retail traders make educated investments within digital assets. After 7 months, Preston left Saidler to help build Crypto Indices at CoinDesk.
At CoinDesk, Preston served as the Lead Crypto Index Analyst, and helped build novel Crypto Indices. Preston led a small team of researchers and data engineers to build an AI-led data pipeline, ultimately powering data point ingestion and analysis that now powers the world's largest Crypto Index Products valued at over $50M. In 2023, Preston would part ways with CoinDesk to pursue his own Fund: the Eckhardt Capital QuanTactical Fund.
Hello, my name is Hunter Feagans.
I studied Economics & Finance in University and then went on to work for a Wealth Management firm, where I managed traditional portfolios comprised of Stocks, Bonds, ETFs, and Mutual Funds.
During my tenure in Wealth Management, I completed all 3 levels (in a row) of the Chartered Financial Analyst certification. I also tutored students in mathematics and coached a 7-on-7 football team.
After my stint in Wealth Management, I began trading during the DeFi boom. I was early in many of the DeFi protocols, participated in multiple small crypto projects, moderated the market-tab of a DAO, and day-traded futures (NASDAQ and S&P500).
I then pivoted and went to work for a Real Estate & Land Asset Management firm where the firm specialized in Land Banking. My role was to help model, financially, Land Banking agreements and Development projects.
Within all that, I am a passionate trader who has traded all markets and instruments — and I am utilizing my knowledge of traditional markets to marry with the cryptosphere.
DeFi is inevitable because money ALWAYS flows to the highest risk-adjusted returns

After joining a small fintech startup, Travis helped capture some 40% of the company’s target market, and began penetrating the US market.

If you are considering crypto, it indicates that your current strategies may not be yielding optimal results. Moreover, it is worth noting that the volatility of Bitcoin has been lower than that of stocks like Facebook and Tesla over the past two years. Bitcoin has shown strong performance, with a growth of +80% in Q1 2023, while DeFi tokens have performed even better. It is essential to consider the influence of mainstream media on your perception of crypto.
To mitigate the risk of scams, it is crucial to have access to filtered information from knowledgeable individuals who can assess opportunities. Additionally, implementing security best practices is essential. Imagine how much you could reduce the likelihood of falling victim to scams by having industry experts give you the best information to improve your decision-making process.
While concerns about government bans exist, the situation resembles the prisoner's dilemma. Global cooperation would be necessary for a ban to be feasible, which seems unlikely given the current state of affairs. Major cities like Dubai, London, and Paris actively embrace crypto companies, making it challenging to enforce a ban, as it would require shutting down every laptop and internet connection worldwide. Although regulatory bodies may resist, history has shown that technology prevails, as it spreads rapidly. The loss of top talent would be detrimental to any country, making government officials aware of the need to adapt rather than hinder progress.
Allow me to share a story before addressing this question. Following FTX's decline, Ledger, the leading manufacturer of crypto cold wallets, experienced its highest-ever sales day. Various DeFi platforms witnessed record-breaking volumes, user counts, and price surges. The reason for this phenomenon lies in the fact that the majority of crypto buyers lack understanding regarding the true application of the technology, namely DeFi. FTX operated similarly to traditional financial institutions, selling crypto without leveraging blockchain technology to enhance their services. Its centralized nature led to its downfall. This highlights the importance of decentralization in the crypto space.
