#07 Arthur Hayes - the Bitcoin Bull and Disruptor In Chief
"There will always be someone who has more than you, and someone who has less than you. Deal with it."
Arthur Hayes is the CEO and Co-Founder of the 100x Group, the group behind BitMEX, one of the largest cryptocurrency derivatives trading platforms in the world.
Never one to mince his words, Arthur is a flamboyant and often provocative figure in the world of crypto. His team created the most traded cryptocurrency product of all time, with overall trading volumes on the BitMEX exchange approaching $1 trillion USD last year according to Euromoney.
It has been a remarkably rapid rise for Arthur Hayes since being released from his trading job at Citibank in 2013. He's accumulated generational wealth in just a few years and all before his 40th birthday. Luckily for me, Arthur and I have some great friends in common, so I was delighted when he agreed to carve out 60 minutes for the podcast. My first question reveals a softer side to the man, before we go on to discuss:
- The @cryptohayes approach to Twitter
- Philanthropy and giving back to his community
- The power of FOMO
- If getting fired by Citibank fuelled him
- The best thing about having money
