In an interview posted on ValuWalk, Ian explains his thinking on how it is that his education and experience have molded him for this role as expert/advisor (see: “He Started Out At Salomon Mortgage Trading Desk, Now He Trades Cryptos” — by The Sovereign Investor — January 4, 2018) stating: “Trading fascinates me. It requires a better understanding of oneself — of human psychology — as much as an understanding of the market. After all, markets are comprised of individuals acting in groups. So it all comes down to the same question: Why do we do what we do?”

Mr. King indicates that his interest in the phenomenon of digital currency began toward the end of the financial crisis in 2009. As one might recall, it was during that time that the Federal Reserve lowered the prime interest rate to zero. Seeing the timing was right for a new way of thinking in regards to monetizing and trading assets, Mr. King met with a Silicon Valley based startup that was exploring the idea of an e-currency and how to distribute money in a digital form.

Most readers likely already know some of the history of Bitcoin. Seemingly against all logical odds and predictions, it has taken on a life of its own in the financial markets of the world. Looking back, when this new form of currency first hit the market, most speculators valued a single Bitcoin at no more than $0.001. Fastforwarding to the present, a single Bitcoin has traded near $10,000. The history and value of cryptocurrency has been a volatile and somewhat controversial one to date. Ian King believes there is great value in its future and wants to advise his clients on wise investments in this arena. Check: https://www.investopedia.com/contributors/82716/
