15.1 The founders

I was born in Braunau, Austria, in 1992 and grew nearby. When it comes to crypto, I am one of the early adopters and have been involved in the crypto space for almost a decade now. For several years, I have had a company for equity management in the crypto market. By now I own various companies related to crypto and am also active in the area of training and coaching for both beginners and advanced users.

In my spare time, I enjoy fishing and climbing with my wife and two children.

I believe that anyone can be successful in in crypto investment.

„My entry into the crypto world was very bumpy. That is why I want to spare others those negative experiences and take the fear out of investing.”

I was born in Munich in 1986 and grew up there. At the young age of 20, I left home and moved to Kansas City the United States. I played soccer there and earned my bachelor’s degree in business administration. I then moved to London, where I attended a program for traders and traded oil. The next step was back to Munich to complete a dual master’s degree in innovation management at Munich Business School. In cooperation with Florida International University in Miami, I also earned a master’s degree in finance. I then founded a company, which I still own.

About three and a half years ago, I joined a family office and have been advising and assisting wealthy clients ever since. My areas of expertise include real estate, investments, company sales and retirement planning.

Privately, I am a fitness enthusiast and use my hobbies, such as CrossFit, boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, to balance out my work life.

I was born in 1971 in Munich, Germany, and also grew up there. I have a grown daughter and have been self-employed since 1996. Since that time, I have built diversified companies and propelled them to market leadership through positioning strategies. Due to my entrepreneurial activities, I have always been interested in investment opportunities across various asset classes. The majority of my wealth was invested in real estate and stocks until recently

I have now sold a large portion of my real estate and invested the profits in cryptocurrencies. I believe this is the area where the greatest opportunities can be found to earn high profits. At the same time, it allows me to directly combine my fascination with crypto with my own investment strategy.

Outside of work, I am very active and especially enjoy CrossFit and mountain biking. On the weekends, I spend time in the Tyrolian mountains to recharge my batteries. Another burning passion of mine is sports cars.

„The real estate era is definitely over, and now the cryptocurrency era has begun, where everyone can make high profits in a very simple way.”
