Speaker: Jamie McAvity
Founder & CEO
Cormint - A Texas-Only Bitcoin Mining Company
What are Bitcoin and Bitcoin mining? And what do they mean for Texas energy markets? Our speaker Jamie McAvity, Founder and CEO of Cormint (a Texas-only Bitcoin mining company), will take a look at the short, medium and long term effects of adding Bitcoin mining to ERCOT electricity markets as well as the ideological alignment between the state and the Bitcoin protocol.
Jamie McAvity began his career in 2008 as an energy futures trader working in the crude oil futures pit. In 2013, he left the commodity futures business to build Knock, Inc., a software business focused on the apartment industry. Jamie served on the management team and as the lead investor in Knock through four rounds of fundraising from seed to series A, growing the business to serve 1.8 million apartment units. He still serves on the board of Knock today. In 2017, Jamie founded Cormint, a Bitcoin mining company doing business exclusively in Texas and headquartered in Pecos County near Fort Stockton. Jamie is Cormint’s lead investor, CEO and President.
