Knowledge and advice platform Eight Global is one of the four partners of Bulls & Bears. “At the moment you will mainly come across content about crypto currency on the platform, but in the near future it will have grown into an all-round platform for both novice and advanced traders,” says founder Michaël van de Poppe.
Hobby that got out of hand
Van de Poppe already started posting crypto content during his economics studies. As an avid hobby trader, he enjoyed sharing his knowledge and experience. And with success. His social channels grew rapidly and after graduating, more than a year ago, he decided to take it more seriously. The Eight Global team now consists of almost fifteen people, with their home base on the Beursplein in Amsterdam.
Time to scale up
Eight Global offers three different subscription forms in which silver and gold consist exclusively of exclusive content and the platinum package also contains an advisory component. “The diversity and depth of our content sets us apart from other knowledge platforms,” says Van de Poppe. For example, all members of the platinum package are assigned a permanent account manager where they can go with all their questions. A product that appears to be in great demand: “A week after we launched this package, it was already sold out,” says Van de Poppe. So time to scale up. “That’s exactly what we’re working on now, but because it’s a very substantive, time-consuming and specific product that you need the right people for, it doesn’t always go as fast as I would like.”
Bulls & Bears
Bulls & Bears is a new investor program on RTL Z and RTL 7. In the weekly talk show, different experts in the field of the stock market, investing and crypto currency join each episode. Van de Poppe will join in four of the eight episodes of Bulls & Bears, in episode two he will be the first to see. Bulls & Bears can be seen every Saturday at 2 p.m. on RTL Z and every Sunday at 10 a.m. on RTL 7.
