Eric Sammons

Hi, I’m Eric Sammons – a Catholic, a husband, a father (of seven), and an author. I write about what I love, which includes:Eric Sammons

  • Catholicism. A convert to Catholicism, I have been studying Catholic teaching for more than 25 years and hold a Master’s degree in Theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville.
  • Technology. My undergraduate degree was in Systems Analysis from Miami University and I have spent over 15 years in the business world as a software engineer. I’m particularly interested in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Dash.
  • Culture. Okay, the parallelism breaks down a little bit here. I can’t say I “love” our culture (especially as it relates to politics) these days, but, yeah, I’m interested. If only for the opportunity to poke fun at the stuffed shirts.
  • Baseball. Just as Theology is the Mother of the Sciences, everyone knows that Baseball is the Mother of All Sports.

I’ve written several books on Catholic subjects, a High School textbook on world religions, and a book on the digital currency Bitcoin. I’m also the Editor of a Sacramental Preparation textbook on the Sacrament of Confirmation. I have contributed to The FederalistOnePeterFive, Catholic AnswersCrisis Magazine, and Bitcoin.com, and I write long-form pieces about the world of cryptocurrencies at Medium.

You can hear the story of my conversion to Catholicism in the video below. Note that I do open my eyes at least once during the interview.

In this video, I talk about the cryptocurrency Dash and its governance structure:
