How long have they been in the field? What kind of education do they have? Work experience? Have they run any successful ICOs? Do they advise on any ICOs?

Selkis is the former Managing Director at CoinDesk and the former Director of Investments at Digital Currency Group. His opinion pieces are occasionally posted on CoinDesk, and his work has also appeared in Investopedia and his daily email newsletter, TBI’s Daily Bit.
Like many other teachers, Selkis’s influence can be felt in the way that his pupils act and react in the crypto market. The following for @twobitidiot includes 74.7 K users – which is substantial but not large within the crypto space.
Since leaving CoinDesk, Selkis has been more vocal about his opinions concerning the crypto market, crypto investing, and the current state of the blockchain. Selkis is active on Twitter and tweets on a frequent basis. Selkis has spoken only a handful of times at crypto conferences, the reason probably being that he wanted to keep a lower, more neutral profile while at CoinDesk.
Selkis’s knowledge about the blockchain industry must be unprecedented, having working as the Managing Director for one of the top crypto news organization. However, Selkis has devoted himself to building his personal brand through TBI which mainly focuses on crypto investing.
Selkis was the Managing Director at CoinDesk, a site providing the latest news, analysis, and insights in the cryptocurrency and blockchain spaces. Prior to CoinDesk, Selkis was the Director of Growth for Digital Currency Group, an investment firm focused on the crypto space. He holds an MBA from MIT School of Business.
