"FLORIDA WILL CONTINUE TO LEAD AS IT BECOMES AN ENVIRONMENT FOR THOSE WHO SEEK FREEDOM AND INNOVATION."- SAMUEL ARMES, PRESIDENT, THE FLORIDA BLOCKCHAIN BUSINESS ASSOCIATION (FBBA)
Florida has always been something magnificent. Florida was formed by visionaries that believed it to be a launching pad for not just the future of the State itself, but for the United States as a whole. From Henry Flagler’s dream of a tropical paradise known as Miami, to Walt Disney’s experimental prototype community of tomorrow, to now humanities foray into Mars, Florida has always stood at the forefront. This trajectory continues with Florida being the leader in the blockchain, cryptocurrency, and financial technology space.
It should not surprise anyone that Florida has taken a lead in this space. To be a true Florida man or woman, takes a want for adventure beyond all else. When I toured the State, before founding what is now Florida’s largest and most influential blockchain and cryptocurrency advocacy group, I attended cryptocurrency meetups in every part of the state. There I met the community leaders who advocated for a more fair and decentralized future for everyone.
Florida will continue to lead as it becomes an environment for those who seek freedom and innovation. The basis of any financial technology should be to create greater freedom and security for the individual and their community. Florida does not just attract these types of citizens; it grows them. Although it could be anyone, there is no doubt in my mind that Satoshi Nakamota was a Floridian.
Samuel Armes has an extensive background in the blockchain and government spaces. Samuel did research for United States Operations Command on Bitcoin and counter threat finance. He also did similar research for the United States Department of State on cryptocurrency policy and blockchain technology.

He spends his free time water skiing and working in the venture capital space.
