TheArtOfCrypto has been a constantly evolving passion project since the past few years ago. We started from a small team with a 5 people among our friends. Seeing a need for simplicity, our group was born. We wanted to offer a cryptocurrency trading platform that would require lack of experience or even a beginner one, with everything needed to get us together with it. You can simply focus on what we will be providing and some other stuff. After some few years of experiencing at the markets, we finally are developed into the current who we are.
Who we help?
We help beginners with no prior trading knowledge, who are inspired to change their lives for the better. We also help existing traders who are ready to elevate their trading performance, through hyper-systemization. We only work with individuals who are committed, aren’t afraid of hard work, and who wish to live abundantly on their own terms. These individuals simply lack the systems, strategies, community, tools, and guidance on how to succeed in trading! Which is where we come in.
What do we do?
We help these individuals achieve the “Freedom” they’ve been missing in their lives — freedom of time, freedom of money, freedom from the perceived limitations society has placed on us. We do this through our training programs which aim to maximize: trading profits, trading performance, and overall self-accountability for your life.
We believe in continual growth above all else — if you’re not growing, you’re dying! The market does not respond well to stagnation, and neither do we! We are constantly evolving, and we encourage our team and all of our members to do the same. We follow a philosophy built on five core principles:
- Constant evolution – evolve or die! Adaptability & growth are non-negotiable.
- Collaboration – team work makes the dream work, collaboration above competition every time.
- High performance – keep filling your own cup, or your performance will suffer!
- Change – change is the only constant, learn to love it & thrive on it!
- Kindness – kind people are our kind of people. It costs nothing to spread the love.
Part 1. There must be a different way
It all started in 2010 when I, Irek Piekarski, realized a regular corporate job was not going to give me the lifestyle I truly desired. I was constantly surrounded with people who preached the importance of ‘investing for retirement’ so naturally, I went to the bank and invested in a high-fee mutual fund. 1 short year later I realized I was simply paying fees with no actual positive returns. “There must be a different way”, I thought, and took my financial well-being into my own hands… Enter the world of trading.
Part 2. “Retired” at 23 years old
After 3 hard years of learning as much about the skill of trading and the financial markets as I could (while still working FT) the day finally came when I looked around me and realized everyone at my current workplace was unhappy… depressed even. Especially those who had been there for 20 years+. I didn’t want to be like them, instead I wanted to live a life that was fulfilling, one with freedom and abundance and purpose. So, at 23 years old, I made the decision to leave my “high-paying and very secure” corporate government job to trade the markets full-time. I burned all my bridges and set off to create a new life.
Part 3. Laptop lifestyle of freedom
Almost immediately after I quit my 9-5 job, my wife (girlfriend at the time) and I decided to travel the world. This was my first taste of true freedom… of the “laptop lifestyle”. It was an incredible time – we travelled to Mexico multiple times, Bali, France, USA, Australia etc. All the while trading from my laptop, with no one to answer to but myself. During this period of time I also started working with and mentoring a small group of traders, sharing my knowledge and skills so they too could experience this newfound freedom I valued so deeply.
