The career trajectory for Jimmy Nguyen (JD 1995) started with digital entertainment, moved to fintech, gaming and now, to blockchain advocacy.

Blockchain expert Jimmy Nguyen (JD 1995) uses law school as springboard to business possibilities.

When Jimmy Nguyen (JD 1995) enrolled at USC Gould School of Law, his vision of the future was wide open. Today, as chief executive officer for Blockchain for All, a company he founded in late 2022 to encourage the adoption of blockchain around the world, his views only continue to expand. 

“Blockchain will change how we make payments, business and consumer interactions, how we own our data, how governments manage data for their citizens … it has the potential as a data network to advance the world in ways you can’t imagine,” says Nguyen, who came to America from Vietnam with his family in 1975, with the first wave of post-Vietnam War refugees. 

Nguyen travels the globe to speak to organizations and governments about the value of blockchain, and in a full circle moment, was invited in 2022 by the Ministry of Communications and IT in Vietnam to speak about blockchain at the “Future of Internet” conference organized by the Vietnam Internet Network Information Center.
