According to public filings with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission, a 25-year-old registered a $1 million trading venture at his parents’ home. According to a report, the company Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies successfully traded for over $2 billion.
The trading desk is PO Street Capital and its founder Darren Nguyen lives in a suburb of Australia. The report alleges that Nguyen and his company have tried to keep a low profile and avoided drawing attention to themselves over the past two years.
However, public records were discovered by journalists showing a profit of $7 million in 2021 and a gain of 1,400% compared to 2020. The trading table then turned a profit of $460,000 as the crypto bear cycle ended.
Crypto Trader Makes Record Profit in bull market 2021
At the end of 2020, Bitcoin reached its previous level all-time high at $20,000. In the months that followed, the cryptocurrency experienced a massive bull run.
By February 2021, bitcoin price was trading at $30,000 before moving higher and making a new all-time high north of $60,000. As the cryptocurrency’s price doubled, the small Australian trading desk saw its profits soar.
As the price of BTC traded higher, other cryptocurrencies saw similar or greater gains. The second crypto after market capitalizationEthereum moved from under $100 to an all-time high of $4,500.
The report claims that PO Street Capital disclosed its performance to the Australian regulator in 2022. However, there is no record of its current profits or trading activity.
These conditions have led to the demise of large companies in the burgeoning industry. From the once billionaire hedge fund Three Arrows Capital (3AC) and the second largest crypto exchange in the world, FTX, well-known companies had to shut down operations or file for bankruptcy protection.
