James Putra, a 15-year fintech veteran and trader, oversees product strategy at TradeStation Crypto.




Putra told Insider why he thinks ethereum could outperform bitcoin in the next 6 to 12 months.




He also shares the 2 altcoins in his portfolio, including how he mined 40,000 dogecoins by accident.


James Putra landed his first job out of college as employee number four at a trading software startup. "It's probably the best and the worst thing you can do to a 24-year-old because you think everything's so easy after that," Putra told Insider at the Chicago Trading Show.Of course, nothing is easy in the highly competitive trading business, but Putra's early start in fintech - prior to the birth of bitcoin in 2009 - has given him a unique advantage in identifying and betting on the next emerging and potentially explosive asset class. After leaving the startup, he helped build a foreign exchange trading business for E*Trade. In 2013, he joined TradeStation to help launch the firm's Japanese equities trading business. In 2014, when the opportunity to launch a crypto trading division came about, Putra jumped on it.
