Christopher Obereder is a serial entrepreneur with a Midas touch. He programmed his first website at the age of 13 and started his first company less than three years later. Now, just 27 years old, the Munich-born tech prodigy is already something of a household name among celebs and founders in Silicon Valley. He joined the blockchain space in 2017 and has become one of the key figures in the European tech scene.
How it all started
Christopher Obereder’s journey as an entrepreneur began early. He got his first start delivering newspapers every week in his little hometown when he was only twelve. After a tough winter distributing newspapers in the cold, he made a move to warmer work, and got a job selling golf clubs during the summer.
Shortly after, Christopher became fascinated with the tech space when a good friend began learning programming. He started building websites and Facebook fan pages when he was 13, and a few of these fan pages went viral. Soon he was managing and interacting with more than 25 million Facebook fans. App and gaming companies took notice and approached Christopher to help move their products up the app store charts. “When people started approaching me to promote their games, I knew that one day I wanted to launch my own game,” Christopher said.

How I got into the gaming space
During his time at university he was able to launch several wildly popular games including Psych, Okay?, and as a result, began working with some of the largest influencers in social media. Big names like Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Skrillex, King Bach and others promoted his products, and his game Steve - The Jumping Dinosaur was later acquired by Genera Games.

Following his studies in finance, Obereder tried his hand at banking in London, and discovered corporate life wasn’t the right place for him. “I knew that this was not my dream, and I wasn’t really passionate about it, either. So it was just a matter of time until I tried something else.”
My move to Silicon Valley
So, after finishing university, Christopher decided to move to Silicon Valley. “This was one of my best decisions ever, I am so happy that I packed my bags and jumped on that plane,” he said.
Once there, he landed roles with the marketing teams of some of the world’s leading tech firms. It wasn’t long before his colleagues were calling him the “social media black magic artist.”
“I know how to get apps into the top charts with relatively low costs, and this opened a lot of doors in Silicon Valley,” Christopher explained. Many of the largest tech startups sought him out to promote their apps, and his work eventually landed him on the prestigious Forbes “30 under 30” list in 2017, after which he moved back to Germany.

Moving into the crypto space
Back home in Germany, Christopher started to become curious about the crypto space and was eager to learn more about it. Luckily, he entered the game early, and was able to connect with many crypto legends, including Roger Ver and John McAfee. He helped with several well-known initial coin offerings, and then began marketing one of the largest crypto apps, called Coin Stats.
Christopher was able to build one of the largest crypto influencer networks in the space and this gave him the necessary reach to launch more successful projects. “I was always very interested in the blockchain space and its implications. When I saw that there wasn’t anyone doing influencer marketing in the crypto space in mid-2017, I started talking to all the major players and this was the perfect opportunity to enter the market.” Now he works with more than 150 of the largest crypto influencers in the world and his sphere of influence extends to millions of people interested in crypto technology.
His app Coin Stats became one of the top 3 crypto apps on the market, and tracks more than $5 billion in crypto today, with more than 400,000 monthly users and 18,000 paying customers. “I am very proud to be part of this success story and I am excited to see what comes next.”
In his most recent pursuit as an international speaker on the blockchain circuit, Christopher speaks at the largest tech and crypto events around the world. “I want to inspire young tech entrepreneurs to live their dreams and follow their passion.”
