Kindness Koin$: Harnessing Technology to Advance Humanity with Bert Pope (Episode #59)

Today’s guest on the Conspiracy of Goodness Podcast is Bert Pope, a widower raising 4 kids and the Creator and CEO of the Awesome Company, took the world by storm when he decided to make a social network for the good of mankind.

Bert Pope, a widower raising 4 kids and the Creator and CEO of the Awesome Company, took the world by storm when he decided to make a social network for the good of mankind – solving the problem of negativity by digitizing kindness and gratitude.

Bert started using Awesome to showcase family friendly TikToks letting users vote for ‘the most awesome’ with the currency he created called Kindness Koin$. With each coin costing 5 cents, winners receive the chance to decide which charities will receive 100% of the voting proceeds. Apart from leading change in social network, Bert was the Top Real Estate Brokers in North Florida for over 32 years. In that time he helped families with the goal to help anyone and everyone who asks for it to the best of his ability.

Nationally, Bert Pope and Associates has been seen on National News multiple times Fox News and WSJ and have had Multi-Million dollar properties highlighted in USA Today. I believe that Bert has created the currency of the gratitude economy. So let’s dive in and learn how to harness technology to advance humanity.
