How did you become involved in Ethiopia, m- space, and like find you way towards on UNICEF? Yeah, it might feel like UNIFIL came out of nowhere for you guys. But actually before it was even announced they worked on that for over a year. But yeah, I, I basically I was in mechanical engineering, major. So I. I spent, you know after I graduated from college I spent a year working in thermodynamics studying heat flow and car designs, but I was sort of passively following the crypto space, a good friend of mine from college. Carl flourish had joined the theorem foundation. And so he was sort of constantly talking about area and slowly peaking, my interest, and I actually got laid off from work in about a believe June twenty seventeen just as crypto. Bull-run started. And I really interested in the space at that point.."
