In 1982, a teen-aged Tim Knight (a much younger version of the fellow on the right) wrote a book called The World Connection, which foresaw how personal computers, connected to one another, would change day-to-day living.
Since then, he has spent all his waking hours writing about computers, trading financial instruments, and developing products for traders. In 1992 he created the financial portal Prophet.net (purchased by Ameritrade in 2005) and was a founding broadcaster on the tastytrade financial network. Tim’s website, Slope of Hope, is one of the oldest and best-known destinations dedicated to using technical analysis in trading.
His most recent project, ticker.art, is a series of commissioned art works that takes the most boring and utilitarian of things – – the letters of a stock ticker symbol – – and creates an exciting, original image, inspired by the company behind the symbol.
The creations developed for each collection are one-of-a-kind, and the NFT for any of them can be explored at OpenSea.io If you would like to browse the virtual gallery, either with your computer or your VR headset, you can do so here.
