Griff Green is a builder and community manager in the Ethereum space. He is also a hippie, a former chemical engineer, and Seattle Supersonics super-fan. A true individual, Griff opted out of society after becoming disillusioned with modern institutions, traveling in a van with gold and silver until he heard about Bitcoin.

Falling down the crypto rabbit hole led Griff to become a deep Ethereum community member, eventually launching The DAO. The story of the DAO’s beginnings, hack, and eventual hard for are the stuff of Sci-Fi. Filled with countless stories, this episode follows the life and times of a deeply fascinating member of Layer Zero.
