Cryptocurrency has been on a lot of people’s minds these past few years. There’s good reason for it too. It’s become one of the easiest and most quickly lucrative forms of investment for newcomers. But ask the most successful people how they got into cryptocurrency and two names are probably going to come up.
The two names are Ian King and Banyan Hill. And there’s good reason why these two names come up together so often. Banyan Hill Publishing is one of the most respected names in economics writing. They have a strong reputation for hard reporting on what may well be one of the world’s most important subjects. Read this article at Medium.com.
And Ian King is Banyan Hill’s cryptocurrency editor. But that’s really on the start of their intertwined story. The larger story involves the reason he was hired in the first place. Ian King was hired in 2017. And by that time he’d already made a name for himself within the more traditional realm of economics.
He’d begun in one of the most famous mortgage bond trading services. His time at Salomon Brother’s gave him experience that would serve him well in his later endeavors. For example, he’d move from there to Citigroup. But it was his decade as head trader at Peahi Capital that would really set the stage for his current work. Read this article at Hi-Tech Chronicle.
Again, he spent that time working with traditional economic systems. But he was present to see the turmoil which shook the industry around 2012. This made something clear to him. He realized far sooner than most that the economic system which had been in place for hundreds or even thousands of years needed to change.
He saw a radical shift coming from the online world. And he watched those developments with a keen eye. He was even brought in to discuss early work on these preliminary attempts at digital currency.
This gave him a huge head start when bitcoin leaped into the public market. He quickly started his own firm to educate the public about cryptocurrency. And that was where he caught Banyan Hill’s attention.
They weren’t just looking for an expert in traditional economics to act as cryptocurrency editor. But at the same time they didn’t want someone who only had a background in cryptocurrency. They needed someone who had experience with both worlds. And Ian King not only brought that, but a strong background in academic psychology.
This made him the perfect person to explain this complex subject to both experts and newcomers alike. And it’s why so many people who’ve found success in cryptocurrency know Ian King and Banyan Hill’s name.
