Whit became fascinated with bitcoin mining in 2018, and started HASHR8 Podcast to learn from industry leaders. He grew the show to become the #1 bitcoin mining podcast on Spotify and iTunes and in 2020, HASHR8 Podcast was recognized as one of the Top 20 Crypto Podcasts.
In 2020, he founded Compass Mining with Paul Gosker and Thomas Heller, to democratize hashrate by giving everyone the ability to profitably mine bitcoin. Compass is the first bitcoin mining marketplace and has helped hundreds of first-time miners start operations of their own.
Prior to founding Compass Mining, Whit held leadership and project management positions with Hilton Hotels, Aliant Payment Systems, and PuppySpot.com.
