Brett Jeffery, M.D.- Founder

 

In addition to founding Big Iron, Dr. Brett is a specialist physician (M.D. University of Texas Health Science Center), treating over 140,000 patients in a 30 year career with impecible integrity, dedication, and a stellar record, additionally serving as a sought-after consultant and expert witness over the last 10 years. In business, he has additionally built 2 multi-million dollar real estate companies, and served on the Board of Directors of several well known entities. Prior to his medical career, he was a professional musician (and continues to this day), performing Rachmaninoff Piano Concertos before packed houses to standing ovations, as well as being the opening act for the late, great Ray Charles, as well as performing in multiple smaller clubs and venues.

He began his love affair with the blockchain in 2013, and had an epiphany in mid-2017, listening to the “EOS Consensus Presentation” by Dan Larimer in May, 2017. His original BP team, EOS the World, LLC, was member of the founding 6 members of the Telos Foundation.

I hereby declare and disclose under penalty of perjury that there are no other owners or investors in Big Iron. The team is entirely funded by Brett Jeffery. There are no other owners, shareholders, investors, or beneficiaries. Additionally, Brett Jeffery has no personal or corporate ownership/investment stake in any other BP teams.

OUTREACH AND PHILANTHROPY

Growing the Telos Blockchain

 

While the first, and, by far, most important job of a block producer is to provide a stable, rock-solid foundation upon which to grow the Telos network, including excellent personnel, hardware, security and planning for future expansion, we pledge to donate up to 25% of our net profit (after the above primary expenses and needs are met) toward philanthropic efforts and Telos dApp development.
