The moment short-term trader James Putra, VP of Product Strategy at TradeStation Crypto, decided to trade exclusively in crypto was pivotal in creating TradeStation’s crypto trading platform. From setting up his first mining rig to educating TradFi firms on this new sector, Putra noticed a substantial division between the tech-dominant crowd populating early crypto companies and the traditional finance folks he was used to. These two crowds didn’t always “speak the same language,” as he puts it. Acting as an intermediary between these two worlds, Putra has been able to incorporate the wisdom of TradFi into the immensely volatile world of crypto that gives traders a leg up in harnessing such volatility.
