13. Carter Thomas | Leaving It All Behind: Futures Trader Leaves Apps, Crypto, and YouTube
Play • 1 hr 25 min

Carter Thomas is a futures trader based in Austin, Texas. After leaving his job at a startup ten years ago to become a marketer and entrepreneur, Carter made a name for himself by building a mobile app business supplemented by Bluecloud, his app education business. He then moved into cryptocurrency trading and developed a platform and YouTube channel.

This quickly turned into a massive content brand, but eventually, and quite suddenly, Carter made the decision to leave it all behind and transition to futures trading.

Carter joins Arman for this episode of FLOW with Arman Assadi to discuss Carter’s career and its changes, the worlds of crypto and futures, and Carter’s thoughts on the economy and the future.
