He was born and raised in India in a small town called Agra and came to the U.S. five years back for graduate school, fell down the bitcoin rabbit hole by chance a few years ago and became a hardcore bitcoiner by heart, through and through. Puru has four years of experience as a lead engineer in the advanced nuclear technology space working on next-generation molten salt reactors. Puru is a big advocate for integrating bitcoin mining with advanced energy technology projects for both economic feasibility and improved long-term investment options.
