About Me

James Ruffer



My Story

I started my career in the computer forensics industry and have had the pleasure of working with some amazing agencies and police forces throughout the USA. I then moved on to the other side of the table as a certified ethical hacker and was able to better understand how certain industries were vulnerable to hackers. I have since moved on to become an entrepreneur and have started some amazing companies in the mobile and FinTech. I have used my connections to build an amazing development team and took time to be trained in Ruby and agile development, which has allowed me to better manage decentralized teams. I have a passion for the FinTech industry and love solving complex issues with technology. Currently, I am back to development in the blockchain space. Helping startups write whitepapers for ICOs as well as developing PoC/MVP apps to the blockchain. It’s an amazing time to be in this space.

Patent 3,135,642 is from James F Ruffer and I hope to have that honor someday as well.
