Griffin studied computer science with a concentration in systems at Stanford University. He put his studies on hold to co-found his current company Halliday: the first solution to enable ownership of blockchain game and metaverse assets through later payment. While at Stanford, he worked at the intersection of DAOs and zero-knowledge proofs. He also built enterprise software platforms for fast-growing tech startups. He has been hacking since the age of 11. A staunch believer in the power of digital spaces and the inherent value of virtual experiences, Griffin has been immersed in the crypto gaming space since 2017 and has been an avid game player for much of his life. He’s a huge World of Warcraft and Dark Souls fan. His core objective is to build and advocate for the construction of a synchronous, digital civilization built upon the principles of ownership, player choice, and open access.
