Ian King is a well-known cryptocurrency trader, entrepreneur, and Banyan Hill Publishing contributor who grew up on the Jersey Shore. He now calls New York City his home and has so for more than two decades. He feels that his time as a lifeguard, on the Jersey Shore, taught him how to analyze a situation and take action fast, and it also taught him to pay attention to his instincts. While studying pre-med and psychology at college, he began to trade dot-com stocks and also began to learn as much as he could about how to get better at it. This experience taught him that he enjoyed doing research into trends in the market and working to predict what direction they would take. He feels like his psychology studies also helped him out here, because markets are made up of individual people who become larger groups that take action.

Ian King went to work for Salomon Brothers’ after he finished college and then joined up with Citigroup for a time. Eventually, he moved on to work with Peahi Capital as their head trader for roughly 10 years where he helped the team to earn profits. It was during this time that he discovered his love of helping people to make money, and he began to pay attention to cryptocurrencies as their popularity started to grow. He realized that cryptocurrencies would probably become the next greatest thing in the trading world, and so he decided to dedicate himself to studying them for many years. Since those early days, he has had a lot of his analysis into cryptocurrencies published by important publications like Investopedia and Zero Hedge.
Ian King has studied plenty of other topics that may not seem related to cryptocurrencies but that he has used to understand them better. Some of his reading has included economics books written by the likes of John Maynard Keynes, Adam Smith, and Milton Friedman, and these helped him to get a better understanding of the way that economics really work. He also created a nonprofit organization that helped rural Pakistani families who needed healthcare and has been a part of a spread of startups. He, specifically, got involved with cryptocurrencies after the financial crisis of the late 2000’s ended. It was then that he learned more about them through a startup in Silicon Valley that was looking to create a form of digital money they banks would print. While he didn’t back the startup, it opened his eyes up to the possibilities that cryptocurrencies could bring to the world.
