My name is Knox Thorn. I am originally from Alabama but my wife is active duty military so we move quite a bit. I graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Finance, and later received my Masters degree in Network Management. I am also in the Air National Guard as a part of the Cyber Operations career field. I currently work as a linux system admin. I would consider my self a libertarian. I am a rabid college football fan, War Eagle!! I would say I am not a big fan of traditional investments such as the stock market and 401k’s, and would rather invest in investment instruments outside of the mainstream banking system. I have also been involved in precious metal investing for close to 10 years. I believe the current financial system is in the final stages before we evolve into something else. I think block chain and crypto currencies are the future of money and investing. The stock market and many of the primary financial markets are so manipulated its hard to have any faith to invest your money into them anymore. I am hopefull that crypto currencies will be the financial instrument I have been searching for to place my money and faith for the future.
