Hi, my name is Adam Cochran.


I'm a marketing executive, data analyst, professor of information science, angel investor and husband. Currently I reside in Ontario, Canada.

I currently work for DuckDuckGo where I was the first marketing and business development hire. For the past 4.5 years, my focus here was growth, and now I focus on our strategic partnerships and integrations.

Previously, I lead marketing at a Bitcoin exchange, consulted in data marketing for major brands like eBay, Blackberry and John Deere. I've also worked on speciality projects for groups like the NASDAQ, The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Reddit, AngelList, WordPress and Chase Bank and taught at or developed courses for educational institutions including Wilfrid Laurier University, McMaster University and Conestoga College.


I'm fascinated by research on NFTs, decentralized organizations, decentralized authority, the ethics of AI, and decentralized decision making. Basically, any time new technology can solve an ethical, political or economic problem.

I currently produce a cryptocurrency newsletter called Coffee&Coin that is a free weekly look at the tech, politics, economics and policy impacting the blockchain space. It's read by thousands of users around the world including top industry figures including executives at Coinbase, Kraken, Enjin and multiple hedgefunds.

On my (rarely updated) blog, I write about crypto , AI, robotics, angel investing and startups. On the rare occassion there may be a historical research piece involving dragons.

I also manage major crypto subreddits like /r/Cryptocurrency, /r/EthFinance and the newly launched EthFi. Which combined have >1M subscibers and see up to 20M unique MAU.

To help keep the industry safe, I produce IronCoin a security extension for Brave Browser and Chrome that blocks phishing domains, puny code attacks, XSS attacks, crypto scams, fake exchanges, fake software and other crypto scams.

If any of those topics are of interested to you, feel free to get in touch or give my blog a read.
