Meet the Team - 5 Minutes With Content Specialist and Business Developer David Langellotti

September 2018
Each week, we sit down with a member of the Blockpass team to learn where they come from, what their day to day looks like, and what they love about blockchain.

Where are you from and what is your work background?
I am originally from Rhode Island, the smallest American state. My background is in content marketing, but always in relation to technology.

I originally got into copywriting for blockchain while I was living in Russia; in 2016, there was an explosion of growth in the crypto scene there. Hundreds of projects, good and bad, were coming out of the woodwork every day. I was initially approached to do some translation - white papers, press releases, blogs. Gradually, I started to write these things from scratch. The rest is history, I suppose.

What is your role at Blockpass?
I am a Content Specialist and Business Developer. I contribute to the documentation - marketing materials and some technical documentation as well. I am also involved in Blockpass sales in Europe and Central Asia - particularly in Russian speaking regions.

What do your daily activities look like?
Writing, thinking - lots of coffee, e-mails, and Telegram messages.

How did you get involved in Blockpass?
I worked with Adam Vaziri on a few other projects in the past. Initially, for Blockpass, I came on just to do some work on the white paper. Within a short time I was hired as a member of the team.

What’s your favourite blockchain related benefit?
Anything that contributes to “borderlessness”. I am an American expat living in the former Soviet Union and I live a life where I am constantly being restricted by some inane law or unthought-through regulation. I think blockchain can fix this someday.

Where do you see the industry headed over the next 5 years?
Well, I at least know that blockchain is well on its way to being something more than just fintech. Do I think our grandmothers will have cryptocurrency wallets? No. But it is clear we will be interfacing with the technology in many, many ways on a daily basis.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history, who would it be and why?
Maybe Thomas Jefferson - maybe some other historical autodidact. With the advent of digital delivery of content, autodidactism has been seeing quite the come back. It would be interesting to discuss that with him.
