Tech Intersect #107: Jomari Peterson-How Avalanche is making Defi Better, Faster, Cheaper and Eco-Friendly
Show Notes Chapter Markers
In this episode, I chat with Jomari Peterson about the Avalanche Defi protocol and metaverse and his role as Core Strategist for the Snowball Ecosystem on Avalanche. Avalanche has been around since 2020 and is fast becoming a major next step in decentralized finance ecosystem and is described  by proponents as “the fastest smart contracts platform in the blockchain industry, as measured by time-to-finality.” 

Jomari is a Strategy, Operations & Development Expert, with significant experience in decentralized tech spaces. In fact, he built his first start up in the space in 2017, the Quantum Resistant Ledger. Under his leadership they raised $4.16 million dollars, leading to a $100 Million+ Valuation.  He also developed a collateral free lending solution, the Digital Reserve and an innovative gaming mechanism for Finite Games. He has also facilitated and supported the raise of millions of dollars at the Oasis Project.


With Bitcoin and Ethereum leading the way, the cryptocurrency market is booming. And growing. With over 17,000+ different types of crypto (and counting), crypto is a fast-paced, fast moving emerging asset class. Find out what banks, governments, and companies like Paypal don’t want you to know about owning crypto and holding it in your own wallet or self-guided crypto IRA. Bottom line? It’s a wave. And you deserve this opportunity to ride it all the way to financial freedom that leads to economic empowerment and generational wealth.
