Grayson Pajkos


Grayson graduated from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. Much of his undergraduate work was focused on the intersection of international politics and macroeconomics. He was a recipient of the U.S. State Department’s Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship in 2015 where he was awarded the opportunity to study at the prestigious Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. There, he studied closely under David Cuberes, one of the world’s foremost economists dedicated to understanding the complexities involved in the development of third world economies. His work experience includes time spent as Regional Sales Manager for MarkPol Distributors where he managed accounts across the American Midwest totaling more than $1.1 million in revenue per year. Since his time in sales, he has worked as a marketing consultant on numerous blockchain related projects. He seeks to leverage his understanding of blockchain technology and combine it with his unique perspective of big-picture economics to help mend the rift between the current niche world of blockchain and the larger mainstream integration of the technology.
