Jesse has a BS in Civil Engineering from the University of Washington and an MA in Education from Biola University. He has worked as a civil engineer and in school improvement processes before co-founding The Coin Trading Company to trade digital assets. With the addition of a new partnership with iBuyTezos, he is able to utilize his trading expertise in a niche market with a relatively new coin (XTZ) with great potential and increasing trading volumes. Jesse really enjoys the relational side of trading and working with people. His success is largely attributable to his qualities as a critical thinker, a consummate team-builder, a sharp troubleshooter and a passion for improving processes and people.

Eli Dickison
Eli DickisonSenior Trader
After graduating with a BS in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from Eastern Oregon University, Eli followed his passion for foreign languages, travel, and business to China where he purchased and managed a group of English language schools. It was in China in 2013 that Eli first read about bitcoin. Because of capital controls in China, he recognized the power and utility of transferring value instantly across borders. After ten years in China, Eli moved back to the US and started The Coin Trading Company with his friend and business partner, Jesse. Eli now lives most of the year with his wife in the Puget Sound region of Washington State where they homeschool their five children.
