My name is Edward Blake and I am the founder and editor of Renegade Investor.
I started my career as a graduate of the University of Gloucestershire with a BSc in IT & Business IT and worked as a Application Support Analyst in both Legal and Airline industries for over 6 years.
Having developed a successful career in IT, the bank bailouts following the 2008 financial crash was the catalyst for my research into Finance, Economics and Investment. Questioning what was happening, the answers shocked me.
Banks and Governments have essentially created a global monetary system where legalised counterfeiting is a everyday practice, accountability and rule of law is non existent, profits are privatised, losses are socialised and moral hazard runs pandemic.
I have since dedicated every spare moment to what is now my passion – developing deep knowledge and understanding of economic systems, investment and geopolitics, and their symbiotic relationship in the global system.
A large part of my work is heavily geared towards precious metal investment and now Bitcoin; understanding its revolutionary potential, its Austrian school qualities, how it is its developing and evolving, changes in how it is bought, sold and stored, and ultimately its ability to change the world.
I have now accumulated over five years of experience & research in Investment, Economics and the Global Markets. I have also worked as an investment consultant for one of the UK’s biggest financial brokerages.
I consider myself one of a small, but growing, number of Bitcoin Specialists in the UK, as I work to promote the value of Bitcoin and its many uses as we enter a new paradigm in global finance.
