Ian King recently published his opinion of the massive gains in the bitcoin market. Over 2017, bitcoin increased in value fifteen times over. This is an unhealthy level of growth that has resulted in bitcoin having a market cap of six hundred billion dollars. The level of growth has led to speculation that the market will crash with recent volatility pointing to instability in the bitcoin market.

Ian King argues that the instability of bitcoin is a sign that it is stabilizing to a real product that is just designed for speculators, those who don’t trust traditional investments, and people who want to buy products anonymously. One major change that more people are purchasing bitcoin. This number is small but the increasing number of people means that more businesses will accept bitcoin. Bitcoin is also much easier to trade than in the past. According to Bitcoin transactions used to take a long time with it being traded through exchanges that were prone to hacks and fraud. Bitcoin is moving to having reputable clearing houses that will increase consumer confidence in bitcoin. Better computing is causing the amount of time it takes to process a transaction to shorten. This makes a consumer more inclined to use bitcoin to purchase an item that they might otherwise purchase with a debit card.

Ian King also recognizes that bitcoin’s reputation has changed from a black market item to a real investment on This is a major change that will cause traditional financial institutions to include it in their trading portfolio. He believes that these factors will cause bitcoin to reduce in value as the result of the rampant speculation. However, he believes that bitcoin will increasingly become a stable investment product. Ian King encourages investors to not invest too much money in bitcoin while recognizing that it will likely outperform Wall Street.

Saving enough money, will make your retirement endeavors easy to achieve as long as one will have good financial advisors. It is wise to save a large part of our income so that spending won’t be a problem when we retire. To make your income enough for saving at the same time sustaining, people will need to look for other sources of income including doing more than one job.

On top of saving, one can choose to invest too. It will add more profits on the savings as well as prepare one to be busy and thoughtful after retiring. The tricky part is to know how to invest and make money from the savings.

Born in Montreal Quebec in 15985 Louis R Chenevert is an example of how hard work an ingenuity can take a person anywhere they want to go. After high school, Chenevert began a long journey that would ultimately result in his lasting legacy. This journey began at HEC Montreal where he studied, creating a foundation for a quick and detail oriented business mind. He later graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Business administration and began his path through the corporate world. His first stop was General Electric where he spent the first 14 years of his professional career. Read more about Louis Chenevert at During this time he was moved up to the position of General production manager. However, after over a decade with the company, Louis Chenevert felt like his knowledge had grown enough to run a company. In 1993 the opportunity came to join Pratt and Whitney Canada and he took it. His abilities were quickly noted and just a few years later he was promoted to president of the company. However, by 2006, he began to feel like his new skills could be put to better use so he joined the United Technologies Corporation where he was initially given the roles of President, chief financial officer, and Director. Later he also acquired the role of CEO. During his time with UTC Chenevert did some of the most awe-inspiring work of his long-lived career.

A lesser manager of enterprise would have been intimidated by the situation Chenevert walked into when joining UTC. The economy was in recession and businesses were failing left and right. Additionally, his new company only boasted a stock worth $37. Chenevert was dead set to change all of that. Most impressive was his commitment to growing the company without taking shortcuts that other corporations took. By the time he was done with UTC the company had lengthened its lead over its competitors and raised it’s stock’s value to $117 a share. All this was accomplished without outsourcing manufacturing or paying employees unfair wages. These new thoughtful solutions have led to many industry insiders seeking the opinion of Chenevert in fostering their own company’s success. Read more at Bloomberg.
