Dayton Mills    

Co-Founder of Branch Technologies

At 16, the Missouri native dropped out of high school to build Minecraft servers and created an analytics program that collected info about player numbers, locations and peak traffic times. In 2017, he sold the app for a few thousand dollars and bought a plane ticket to San Francisco. In 2020 he and cofounder Connor Hollasch started Branch to build social Web3 games. Branch's first game, "Castaways," in which players transform desert islands, is free to play, but superusers can earn special in-game items that they can sell to other players. Branch, which has raised $14 million, gets a 10% cut. Still in alpha, "Castaways" has 125,000 monthly active users.
