Managing Editor, St. Thomas Journal of Complex Litigation

My motivation for writing this article was my best friend who had invested in Bitcoin and Professor Moore who gave me the idea for my topic. My best friend still has money invested in bitcoin, and we usually talk about the volatility of the cryptocurrency and what would solve that issue. Moreover, Professor Moore inspired me to write this paper due to her personal experience regarding bitcoin.
It is a tremendous honor being published as a student and I am extremely grateful that my article was picked for publication.
