Jonathon Tarr is a Serial Entrepreneur, Investor, and early adopter of Cryptocurrency. Jon bought his first Bitcoin in 2013 on the advice of a friend and has been in love ever since. In 2017, Jon founded Totally Crypto which began as a way to educate both Advanced Crypto Enthusiasts and New Crypto people about all aspects of Crypto including mining, investing, trading, and holding as investment. This Facebook group was created to dispel the myths and cut through the hype of the Crypto market to give members the FACTS about Cryptocurrency, and it has now grown into the Internet’s largest Crypto community. Jon resides with his wife Dr. Catherin Tarr and son Jonathon in Dana Point California.
