1. Tell us about your background, and how you ended up in $CRYPTO.
“I was born into a very wealthy Korean family and my Dad lost all my inheritance. So I grew up in Korea town LA when there were very few Koreans. Got attacked and beat up by every single racial gang there was. So I had a choice, become a baddass or die. During that transformation process, I basically died a few times too. Drowned twice. Electrocuted unconscious once. So when competitors attack me, I fight to the death. I’m not afraid of it. It’s old hat.
Competitors whom I’ve kicked in the ass, namely a K__ K_____, an incompetent attorney in LA will go around manipulating bloggers into writing fiction about me to feel better about losing to me. Understandable. I kicked a lawyer’s ass in court. And I’m not a lawyer. And I didn’t even show up to court. That’s embarrassing. Look it up. LA County Small Claims Court. That’s all the homework I’m going to do for you lazy trolls. I’m going to get him disbarred. I already have all the evidence.
PS. What about Ginsberg? That idiot also got his ass kicked by me. So he started this whole let’s troll the Korean dude who kicked my ass phenomenon. So one loser bases his fake news on another loser’s fake news. Amazing. Funny thing is, I’ve been Ginsberg’s Facebook friend for years now. He has no idea how I like to wait years to build up a sell wall on my enemies. If he did, I wouldn’t still be his Facebook friend. Yep. I’m vicious to my enemies. And as my friends will tell you, fiercely loyal to my friends. You gotta be when you’re one of the the only Koreans growing up near South Central LA and Compton.”
2. You run a really successful paid group, with lots of happy members (and some that are not). Tell us why would someone that does not know your work, would like to join?
“I tell all our members and prospective members, we will not always be profitable. But we will always be profitable. The trick is how myopic you set your vision. If you cannot adjust your vision to a longer term strategy, you’re stuck in a short term expectation cycle. Short terms are higher risk. Simple.
So, we buy some coins and they go up 30% in a day in a bad bear market. $EDG did $DASH did. And some coins that fall under our buy price like $PTOY. So do you freak out and say, “oh my, I got scammed!” Or do you zoom out a little bit and go back to fundamentals and say, “oh, this is a fantastic long term investment!” And by long term, I mean weeks. Maybe days.
We only pick grade A coins (I admit we picked that scammy $MCO coin. our top analysts were all against me on this. My fail.)
But all the coins we pick are designed to have large upswing. So if value drops after we buy in, We $BTFD based on fundamental outlook, support lines, competitive landscape, governmental regulation outlook, and many other factors.
Basically, you will not always be profitable. But you will always be profitable.
On the topic of failing, I also slighted @crypto_rand by sharing his chart to my group after cropping it. And it seems, I cropped out his credit. Still feel super bad about that. Rand, please accept my appology! And for calling you an idiot. Ouch!”
3. Your highlight and lowlight moment in $CRYPTO?
“Lowlight, selling all my bitcoin at $308. Lowlight, selling all my bitcoin at $900
Highlight? Right now. This thing called now, I just impregnated it with possibility.”
4. How you risk manage your portfolio? How’d you handled latest China FUD?
“We did excellent during the China FUD. Clients threatened to sue me and write more fictional blog posts about me. Then when we precisely caught falling knives at the bottom and they just sprang right back up, they made an instant 12%. I’ll have to look that back up to confirm. It was ages ago. Yes. Bitcoin fell 10%. But these premium alts fell far lower. So instant profit. Yeah, I know, it’s no fun when your wallet shrinks before your eyes. But when that six pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon you’re buying ends up costing half, you run your ass to the register.”
5. What satisfies you the most in $CRYPTO?
“To be a PhD, you have to be approved by other PhDs. To be a lawyer, the ABA has to accept you. To be anything, you can be everything but that’s never enough because someone else has the ultimate say. In crypto, you are the Gawd of your own destiny. You can make yourself. Then, you can hire the PhDs and Lawyers to work for you.”
6. What disgusts you the most in $CRYPTO?
“Taking advantage of the less informed. When a seasoned business man doesn’t tell people the leaked photos with the visa logo were intentionally leaked. When he doesn’t say they were just mock ups. When he doesn’t say there’s no official partnership at all. That’s disgusting.
I like making money. I love to win. But I love to win by beating smart opponents. Winning by hurting and tricking people is just disgusting. BTW, when is that Citi Challenge Finals again?”
7. What are your entrepreneurial fields of interest?
“Anything where really innovative people are building something new, I’m in. I have over 300 active websites. All in various hardware and software innovation fields. It’s all exciting.
Some people don’t believe that I can do all this. It’s totally doable.
1. Don’t sleep. How?
2. Learn meditation. Why? —
3. Because you grew up with your back against the wall or your head bounced on the pavement and you want to survive, no, truly live. And you realize that the only way to live a different life is to manage your mind and emotions instead of letting them manage you.”
8. #1 recommendation to $CRYPTO noobs?
“Study fundamentals, charts, analysis, join 5 different paid groups. Become the smartest person you know in crypto. Then find a room where you’re the most idiot. And start over.
Appreciate it @APACllc very much! For allowing a glimpse of your life.
As much as controversial @APACllc might be on his comments, nobody can deny he has a keen sense to see in the charts, many experienced traders cannot.
