He is only 18 years old, but can be considered one of Slovakia’s experts in cryptocurrencies. Mário Havel, who is currently in his final year of the Secondary School of Electrical Engineering on Karol Adler Street in Bratislava, has organised several conferences and workshops to spread more information on this topic. He has recently been awarded the Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Award.
He is active in two non-governmental organisations: Slovak Students for Liberty and Paralelna Polis, through which he pursued his goals: improving his managerial and leadership skills.
The Slovak Spectator (TSS): Why did you decide to focus on cryptocurrencies?
Mário Havel (MH): The main reason was the idea of liberty. I’ve been reading works by the representatives of the Austrian School. Moreover, I study electrical engineering and informatics. These two directions meet in cryptocurrencies. Also, I have been interested in technologies that help spread the idea of liberty.
TSS: How did you end up being active in two non-governmental organisations at such a young age?
