Texas A&M University Nicholas Tillerson February 10th 2020
I am 25 years old and originally from San Antonio. I grew up playing
baseball and video games. I love games of all kinds and am extremely
competitive. When I am not doing schoolwork, I am usually playing
and poker. Many people ask if I am related to Rex Tillerson the former
CEO of Exxon and Secretary of State, and technically this is true.
The reality though is that I come from a normal working-class family,
and I have only met Rex once at a distant family function. Though I am
proud of his achievements, I do not intend on ever being someone who uses
their name to get advantages. The reason I am older than some of my
classmates is that I took a few years off from school to save enough money
to support myself while in school. I have personally financed my entire
college career and will be graduating during the fall of 2022.
Around 2014 I began to learn about bitcoin due to all the hype from it
rising to around $300.
In doing so, I began to research how the blockchain itself worked. Mathematics
has always been my best subject, so I studied the proofs that support how the
blockchain functions. I was blown away at what this system was capable of doing
and how elegantly the entire system actually functions. Soon after, I began
mining for myself. I have been telling anyone who will listen that blockchain
technology will quite literally change our entire monetary system. It is quite
possibly the most powerful technological development of the 21st century, and
it will provide efficiency in transacting that the market
will be unable to
ignore. After graduation, I would like to work for a company that sells
or distributes blockchain related products.
