Sam Volkering

Sam built a career advising private clients and businesses on how to manage their money and build their wealth. With a decade of financial advice under his belt he decided that it was time to change the game and combine his great passions in life (technology, writing and helping people to make money).

He joined our Australian affiliate Port Phillip Publishing in 2013 and has since become one of Australia’s most recognised financial editors.

As a child he revelled in the wonders of the Apple 2e and Macintosh. A life-changing trip to Japan’s ‘Electric Town’, Akihabara set him on a discovery of technology that will never end. Starting a small tech business in his 20’s, registering a patent in Australia and running several websites are just some examples of how he immerses himself in the world of technology.

But his real talents lie in uncovering, researching and investigating the world’s most revolutionary technology companies and trends before they hit the big time. He predicted the rise of 3D printing, the arrival of augmented reality and most notably the incredible shift to self-driving cars and artificial intelligence.

He first bought bitcoin in 2011, and ever since he has followed the cryptocurrencies 'wild west', becoming an authority in this new field of digital assets. Recently, Southbank Investment Research published his book Crypto Revolution: Bitcoin, Cryptocurrencies and The Future of Money

He travels the world meeting and engaging with inventors, founders, innovators and the most influential people in tech. His unique combination of financial acumen with an unwavering devotion to the most cutting edge technology makes Sam one of the most prodigious talents in our stable of Editors.
