Welcome to the fifth journal of our “Ambassador Stories”!
Every week, you’ll be able to enjoy the various, unique stories of our Cardano Community Ambassadors: what motivated, and still motivates them, to be part of this amazing and wonderful community?
The Cardano Community Team would also like to thank the Ambassadors for all their continued efforts and participation in sharing their stories with us.
Part 1: Tyrone Berry - Content Creator
Tyone has been with the Cardano family for quite some time now, creating content and videos for the ecosystem. He is currently busy working on more videos he’ll be releasing as a series! We’re looking forward to seeing more videos soon!

1) Tell us a little about yourself. What is your background?
I’m 23 years old and Ft. Lauderdale, Fl is where I call “home”. I’m a full-time student at Colorado Technical University online, and I currently serve in the US Air Force. I’m in lieu of my BS in Computer Science for Software Engineering.
I run an E-Commerce Logistics company, enabling online merchants to utilize our transparent tracking and shipping services. I find joy in solving problems and minimizing error. Running a business keeps me on my toes, because there are new challenges every day.

2) How did you get interested and involved with Blockchain/Crypto?
I was first introduced to Crypto in 2013 during my Jr. year of High School. A friend of mine told me about Bitcoin and the Dark Web and that was the end of my adventure into crypto. I later jumped back in, when Philippe (from the Cardamon Effect) showed me the ropes behind the technology of Blockchain and its potential. This was around May 2017. We’d have video chat meetings and do our own research on different projects.
3) Why Cardano?
After being introduced to Ethereum, it was not long after Philippe suggested I should read the Cardano Ouroboros white paper. After reading and watching a few of Charle’s Youtube videos, I was convinced that IOHK was onto something. Their plan was bigger than just sending/receiving money and getting “rich”. I saw their vision to solve real-world problems.
4) How are you contributing to the Cardano Ecosystem as an Ambassador?
I first started out making Youtube videos to help educate the US Military community on customs and living experiences. After 2017, I decided to rebrand my content into Crypto. Later then decided to post Cardano-related content, and was chosen as one of the first Cardano Ambassadors.
My YT tag is “Berry TV”
I’m also in the works of making a list of videos and tutorials to help people understand the technology behind Cardano, help outside developers create and build onto the Cardano platform, and contribute to the Cardano developer community.
5) What is your future vision for the Cardano Ecosystem?
My vision for the future of the Cardano Ecosystem is a bright one. I believe Cardano will fill the cracks that it’s predecessors have failed to. Adoption will grow, and users will be able to enjoy a secure, seamless computing platform with high scalability.
6 ) What is your personal message to the Cardano community?
Centralized banking is the Stone Age. ALWAYS DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.
Other than that, I hope to attend a community event and meet you all one day
Don’t forget to like, follow, share Tyrone’s hard work! He can be followed on the Cardano Forum and Youtube Channel: Berry TV!
