Thomas Semaan is a finance and economics enthusiast. He got into Bitcoin in 2016 as a university student through his research about Austrian Economics and Libertarian ideas. He decided to go through the route of Bitcoin advocacy when the Lebanese Economy went into the drain in late 2019. He started writing for his own medium blog in 2020, and in the same year he launched an Arabic speaking Podcast about Bitcoin, Economics and Lebanon. Thomas is also an active member of the Lebanese and Arab Bitcoin community. His mission is to accelerate Bitcoin adoption in this region, where often adoption does not seem to be happening quite as fast.
