Ex-marine Jered Kenna has to be one of the most perseverant entrepreneurs in bitcoin. After his exchange TradeHill fell apart not once but twice, he also lost bitcoin.com – the flagship domain for the digital currency.

Not one for giving up, he has since dusted his shoulders off and thrown himself into two projects – 20 Mission and Money and Tech – that aim to educate and inform people about the impact of technologies like bitcoin.

Here, Kenna discusses the highs and lows of running Mt Gox's earliest rival, the projects he's busy with now and what life is like in his new home, Colombia.
