Vinay Gupta has created disaster relief programs like STAR-TIDES with the US National Defense University and shares his expertise on open-source platforms. Gupta has also produced Hexayurt Country, a national plan to reconstruct Haiti after the earthquake. His projects, including Hexayurt, stem from devising Six Ways To Die, a best-practice guide to managing global systems during crises. Having started with E-Gold in the 1990s, he has now taken the lead in discussions of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ether and the strengths of radical decentralization. Gupta holds the position of associate fellow at University College London’s Institute for Security & Resilience Studies and recently collaborated with the Guggenheim’s Azone project.
