Since his humble beginnings as a child actor in The
Mighty Ducks and First Kid, Brock Pierce
has utilized his entrepreneurial spirit to develop and fund over
one hundred companies, including Tether which is the #1 most traded
cryptocurrency with an annual volume of $10 trillion and a daily
trading volume that surpasses Bitcoin at $21 billion. Brock also
founded Blockchain Capital with which he gave rise to the security
token offering (STO), allowing people to make secure investments in
digital currency. Additionally, he constructed a valuable
platform for launching cryptocurrency methods in a revolutionary
process called Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) and established the
first digital marketplace for virtual goods within online gaming
which is projected to reach $190 billion in revenue by 2025. All of
these innovations have ultimately led to establishing new fields of
work which have created new jobs for Americans.
Inspired by the widening wealth inequality and the polarizing political spectrum, Pierce has launched his campaign to become President of the United States and seeks to minimize our negative impact on the environment through preservation of renewable resources and supporting small businesses through new technology-oriented solutions. Additional prospects include mental health initiatives and helping everyday Americans maximize their wealth.
As a philanthropist, Brock established the Integro Foundation whose mission is to revive communities and nations in times of crisis by mobilizing different organizations and government agencies. Most recently, the organization worked extensively in Puerto Rico, the Caribbean Islands, and with indigenous communities in response to the destruction caused by Hurricane Maria. Brock's professional experiences have generated a passion for due process and the rule of law which led him to form the Brock Pierce Foundation, bringing to light key issues in the fields of education, civil rights, mental health/medicine research, and the arts.
Brock’s pioneering in both new technology and philanthropy have earned him two honorary ambassadorships in South Korea as well as being knighted in 2019 by the Ordine dei Cavalieri di San Martino del Monte delle beatitude. As a guest lecturer and speaker, Brock has shared his knowledge at Singularity University, the Mobile World Congress, WIRED, INK, Stanford University, USC, and UCLA. His contributions to the fields of technology and philanthropy have been featured in The New York Times, Forbes, Fortune, WIRED, and Rolling Stone.
