BEAM is continuously upholding the foundation of privacy as a value. As BEAM protects the values that Mimblewimble privacy protocols continue to spread, distinguished and influential ambassadors within the cryptocurrency continue to represent our values and contribute to its widespread impact. Ambassadors are devoting themselves to building a fairer future where the privacy and the financial privacy paradigms are protected. Meet Dylan Dewdney, an influential ambassador currently in Toronto, Canada!

Dylan Dewdney

Dylan, Let’s Get to Know You!

I have been known for being a pretty energetic, creative, sensitive, and sometimes precocious kid. I’ve forever been fascinated by various types of technologies, especially because I was a child during the time when the internet was just beginning.

Now as an adult, I see a time where a blockchain world is just starting to develop. I want to be a part of this industry and I currently have that chance. I am intrigued by ideas relating to improving human self-organization and systems due to my academic background in Social Theory and Sociology. I pride myself on typically being enough steps ahead that people often think I’m a bit “out there.”

“I want to see a world that’s fairer, guided with a purer vision, and I want money and value to be squarely under the control and purview of individuals.”

Why BEAM?

BEAM is the most efficient implementation of MimbleWimble that I know of. The team itself has a mission that goes above and beyond the profit-motive one usually sees in this particular field. We really believe in the human-level categorical imperative of making money “free,” and not at the disposal of special interests or authorities. The team together firmly upholds such motives and are working hard to make these values a reality with BEAM.

What Do You Enjoy Working On?

I enjoy thinking about ongoing human and societal issues, and connecting thoughts and ideas in novel ways across varied disciplines and traditions. I am passionate about mathematical concepts that find expression in nature, such as fractals, cryptography, human value movement, and creation.

I really like to hit my intellect on all fronts and enjoy oil painting, chess, fiction and non-fiction writing, and self-directed research on various topics, but usually the biological or material science. I am ideating now on climbing a very large mountain, Everest.

What Do You Want to See in a Privacy-Oriented Digital World?

I want to see a world that’s fairer, guided with a purer vision, and I want money and value to be squarely under the control and purview of individuals.

Why Should Someone Become a BEAM Ambassador?

I believe that becoming a BEAM Ambassador is akin to doing a common good. It is knowledge-sharing of something that has real potential to solve one of the key original and compelling missions of blockchain technology, which is to make the world freer.

Overall, the BEAM Ambassador Program is built around having talented individuals all over the world, supporting BEAM’s approach, technology, and vision to their communities and fellows. We’re happy to introduce you to Dylan Dewdney, our BEAM Ambassador in Toronto, Canada, and one of the fathers of our Ambassador Program.
