Devan Leos has been involved in the blockchain world since its early days. As an entrepreneur, he saw the potential that blockchain technology had to offer early on and started investing in various projects. He soon realized that many brands were struggling to understand how to properly market themselves in the creative scene, and because of his background with one of the largest creative companies in the world (Disney), he decided to help artists, and blockchain projects properly tell their stories to the world, while correctly marketing themselves. When asked when I asked Devan Leos when exactly he got into blockchain he said:
“It’s so crazy because the way I got into Crypto was super random. It was in 2012, and I heard about a story on the news about a guy who got arrested for making a marketplace on ‘the deep web’ called Silk Road.”
“I have always been curious about advancements in Cyber Technology and upon researching the deep web, and the Silk Road case, I found out about Bitcoin. I was so fascinated by this ‘crypto currency’, but I admit I was stagnant, and only being 13 at the time, I wasn’t able to buy it. It was about 300 dollars a coin!”
Devan Leos certainly is no stranger to the world of blockchain technology, and while he says he was too young to buy, he also stated that he’s always been a proponent of blockchain technology. With the recent developments of NFTs (Non-fungible tokens), Devan has spent his time educating and helping artists and projects alike properly handle their PR needs. According to Leos:
“The NFT community is full of great people, but also, no pun intended, some really bad actors. What I mean is that there are snake-oil salesmen and side-hustlers in the community, parading themselves as experts, but they have no experience and are just looking to make a quick buck.”
Leos also said:
“One of my main motivations working in the creative and NFT community is to help people and give them real value.”
While Devan is well known within the NFT community, he told us he was shocked to be listed next to Gary Vee as a top Web3 PR expert on Tech Announcer (read the article here). However, despite what some may say about the Disney actor, it seems he is working hard and deserves the accolade. Devan Leos is currently the CEO of two digital marketing and PR agencies DDigital and FC-AO, and also serves as the director of CMNT (Commint), a Non-profit community security organization that Leos just started up. When asked about some things he has done for clients he said:
“..Helping grow communities, helping get people featured in the news and on TV, or podcasts, and increasing people’s influence and authority are just some of the things I do for my clients”
Devan Leos is truly a jack of all trades and his skillset with NFTs, digital marketing, media and PR are unmatched. As the industry evolves, it’s important to have individuals like Devan who can help bridge the gap between blockchain and mainstream media. Not only does he have a wealth of knowledge in the space but also a genuine desire to help others succeed.
