Tuur Demeester invests in cryptocurrency businesses and projects. He also shares his views on important issues in the space. That’s not all. He is the founder of the cryptocurrency research firm known as Adamant Research. Tuur should be on any list of top cryptocurrency personalities to follow. We will find out why after reading this coverage of his work in the cryptocurrency community.
Demeester studied modern languages at St. Louis College of Bruges. He also took classes in Economics, Political Science, Philosophy, African Studies, and History from Gent University between 2003 and 2006.
Based on what Tuur Demeester did later on in the field of economics, we can tell the lessons from Gent stuck with him. He co-founded the Rothbard Institute which had Austrian Economics as one of its main focus areas. Tuur also started a Sudbury school called De Kampanje where pupils take personal responsibility for what they learn.
Before getting into crypto fully, he worked as an editor at Goldonomics and later Macrotrends. Goldonomics was into wealth management while Macrotrends was his own newsletter with a finance focus. It must be said that it is not surprising that a man with an economics background and an interest in the concept of kids taking learning into their own hands would go crazy for Bitcoin. There are some striking similarities between that and taking one’s financial freedom into one’s own hands.
What He Does Now
Currently, he is the Editor-in-Chief of Adamant Research. Adamant research is also finance and economics related with a focus on Bitcoin and blockchain investment opportunities worldwide. The end product of the research here is a newsletter which is available upon subscription at adamantresearch.com.
Aside from providing research-based investment information for others, Tuur Demeester invests himself. He has invested in a number of startups in the cryptocurrency space. The Kraken cryptocurrency exchange and Cointerra are examples of businesses he has invested in.
Tuur frequently adds his voice to debates on issues in the cryptocurrency space. He has spoken at events and written articles covering topics like “Bitcoin Seen Through the Eyes of a Central Banker“, privacy, fungibility and the famous block size debate. These days, with Bitcoin news everywhere, people do not need to be told why they should buy some. Back in 2013, Tuur Demeester amongst others had to tell people why they should invest in Bitcoin. More recently he expressed concerns about the proof of stake design being proposed for Ethereum and got himself a reply from Vitalik Buterin, founder of Ethereum.
Tuur Demeester was already a man on the move before he found out about Bitcoin in Argentina. You could say his past experience in finance and economics had already prepared him for Bitcoin. Either way he accepted it and has since been a useful contributor to the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
