I’m passionate about: - removing pretense - showing how simple finance can be - economic thought - doubling down on your interests - and Bitcoin I graduated with a double major in finance & economics from Creighton University and 3 years later earned my CFA charter. I began my career at FTI Consulting in their Corporate Finance and Restructuring group for the TMT industry and then moved to Lion Equity Partners, a distressed buyout private equity fund. All the while I intently followed Bitcoin, and its development eventually led me to jump into the industry. The world of traditional finance was a great place to begin my career, but I didn’t find my passion there. I realized that my passion lay in finding ways to create and store value (through Bitcoin) rather than extract it. I decided I wanted to be less professional and more real with people. I wanted to communicate transparently with others, as opposed to the opaque nature of financial institutions. My first step in this direction was writing The 7th Property – it is the resource I wish I had when I first discovered Bitcoin.

My twitter is @ericyakes where you can follow me for my take on the world and the humor that gets better as you lower your expectations.Read more Read less
