Brock Pierce began his career early as a child-actor, starring in a dozen blockbuster movies, including The Mighty Ducks and First Kid. At 16, Pierce’s love for technology and its limitless possibilities inspired him to become a billionaire entrepreneur and eventually a leader in blockchain technology — a modern vehicle for the American dream. Unsurprisingly, Pierce has been featured in numerous publications — including The New York Times, Forbes, The London Times, Fortune, Wired and Rolling Stone — while also in-demand as a public speaker at top universities and technology-related conferences.
While many entrepreneurs intend to find success within the business realm and stay there, Brock Pierce has taken a hard turn into the public sector and is currently running for public office. Which office, you ask? President of the United States Of America. A recent Siena Poll ranked Pierce as the leading independent candidate within the current Presidential election, and Pierce participated in a major debate alongside other inepdendent candidates in Cheyenne, Wyoming over the weekend. Pierce is not only eyeing the 2020 U.S. Presidential election but has gone on-record to discuss his political plans — which do not just involve him running for office again — for 2024.
On October 26, 2020, I had the pleasure of interviewing Brock Pierce via Zoom, as embedded below. We talked about his U.S. Presidential campaign of 2020, why he transitioned out of acting as a child when work was still coming in, his love for tech, his optimism for the future of his country, hobbies outside of work and politics, and more.
