Sunil Aggarwal is a philosopher-entrepreneur. After teaching Political Science and International Relations for 14 years, he withdrew from mainstream academia in 2012 to launch his own start-up ecosystem. To him, research is treading beyond established knowledge, and entrepreneurship is living the dream, however difficult it may be. When bitcoin was not even in double digits, he could see the potential of this trend as a game-changer. It was the promise of true peopleâs money and individual freedom that attracted him to the blockchain technology that underlies bitcoin. After jumping into the start-up world, he lived through times of creative destruction and experienced the ups and downs of the crypto-currency market. It was the rise of a completely new world with new definitions of money, law, and labour. In an extremely unequal reality, Sunil could see a massive middle-class revolution across all borders due to new and decentralized peer to peer connections.
