Balina has over 150,000 followers on Twitter, 120K subscribers on YouTube and over 40K on Instagram. There is no doubt that he is a big crypto influencer whose presence in the team of any cryptocurrency would benefit the cryptocurrency.
He leads an investor syndicate which has invested almost 10 million USD in ICOs, in addition to being the founder and general partner at 100X advisors. KuCoin intends to sign more ambassadors around the world who would work closely with the research team to help minimalize the investment risks the users face.
Balina had made it into the headlines back in April when he was hacked for over 2 million USD worth of cryptocurrencies while he was in the middle of a live stream on his YouTube channel. While some believe that he had faked the hack just to avoid taxes, he denied all of those claims.
When the hack was done, one of the users asked Balina about the sudden transfer:
“Ian, did you know that somebody transferred all your tokens from your account, hope that it’s controlled movement.”
Balina simply carried on with his live stream. It wasn’t until much later that he realized what had happened. However, this didn’t stop him from carrying on with his life as an influencer. He has been regularly updating fans about the cryptocurrencies in the market as well as his views about them.
KuCoin is the world’s 53rd exchange right now in terms of daily volume. Balina is sure to make things better for the exchange.
