🚀Aleks Svetski
Aleks is a top 1% student and university scholarship recipient who decided to pursue entrepreneurship instead of textbooks. After
teaching himself to trade high leverage derivatives and making a small fortune at school, Aleks decided to leave university to chase
bigger dreams. Since then Aleks has built several successful businesses and has been featured in publications such as Wealth Creator, The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald and been recognised as one of the Top 20 Young Entrepreneurs in Start Up Smart’s “Future Makers”.
Aleks founded the Blockchain Training Institute in late 2016, and is currently the CEO of Amber, a micro-investment platform that swaps
your spare change for Bitcoin, using their proprietary tool financial data aggregation & payment software; Fabric.
For a more in-depth overview, please see Aleks’ LinkedIn profile, and the Wholesale Investor interview
Amber is a new-generation micro-investing app, that rounds up your daily purchases to the nearest dollar and swaps the digital spare
change for Bitcoin & other cryptocurrencies; automatically.
The idea is to slowly but surely invest your “spare change” from a transaction into the most exciting new asset class we’ve seen in over a
century. Unlike most micro-investment apps, Amber goes further by allowing you to store, swap, send and sell those currencies once they’ve been purchased; which makes it the only all-in-one wallet, exchange & investment app on the market. More info at www.getamber.io
