I'm EXTREMELY excited to announce my run for US House #OR6. I'm a scientist running to be the first #DeFi dev in Congress. If you want to prove to the US Government that #Crypto matters, please donate via BitPay today! mattwestforcongress.com/

I first got involved in Crypto by mining #Bitcoin in 2009, and again in 2013 on my Butterfly Labs Jalapeno. I watched @VitalikButerin post on bitcointalk forums about his idea for a programmable #Blockchain in 2014, and last year during the pandemic I became an #Ethereum dev!
I joined the @ETHGlobal #ETHOnline hackathon to build a @HegicOptions vault for @iearnfinance, and my team won! I continued working as a strategist with Yearn, and some of my proudest work was collaborating with @PoolTogether_ to build strategies using their platform.
I have my PhD in renewable energy research and have spent nearly a decade helping develop the manufacturing process for computer processors. It's time we have someone in #Congress who understands #science, #technology, and #crypto to help build the economy of the future.
