Our guest for today’s video is a true OG. In fact, he leads Blockchain Education Network, BEN, which gave The Rollup an early opportunity to participate at conferences in Miami and Washington DC.

Erick Pinos joins The Rollup for his educatooor arc as leader of BEN’s network of university blockchain organizations.

University groups are increasingly influential in DeFi’s top DAOs as delegates. Following Optimism’s TGE a16z delegated 7 million OP to protocol politicians, 6 million of which went to university groups including UPenn and London Business School.
