Brian Kelly founded BKCM in 2013 after experiencing a well-publicized conversion about the investment potential of Bitcoin and its supporting blockchain technology, an epiphany he chronicled in his book The Bitcoin Big Bang. As CEO, he brings more than two decades of experience managing global macro strategies, as well as building investment funds and independent investment firms from the ground up. In addition to his roles at BKCM, Brian is the lead portfolio manager for the BKC Fund, an actively managed ETF focused on digital assets and blockchain, offered by REX Shares LLC. He is a sought-after commentator: a regular CNBC contributor, on Fast Money and other programs; and a frequent keynote speaker at crypto and blockchain conferences around the world. In 2015, Brian was named one of the “30 Most Influential People in Bitcoin” by Inside Bitcoin.
