Frequently Asked Questions

What is Black Mountain and how did it get started?

Black Mountain Investment Group (BMIG) is an investment manager that was founded by three young entreprenuers wanting to make a difference in the world through investing. Before founding BMIG with Thawon Preyawan and Elijah Levine, Kyle Niedzwiecki studied blockchain/DeFi for years and began investing in Ethereum around 2017 (previously had invested in DOGE and LTC). Inspired by the technology and capability of wealth creation, Kyle started a free educational community for trading and investing in cryptocurrencies and stocks. Since Easy Loot’s founding in 2019, it has gained a respectful following and generated millions of dollars for its members via free signals sent out on a nearly daily basis.

Through building the community, Kyle met Thawon and introduced him to cryptocurriencies, specifically, trading these assets using technical analysis. Thawon became and avid crypto trader and learner; using only a modest amount of money he had earned by working at his parent’s restaurant, Thawon leveraged cryptos (with dilligent downside protection) to create more wealth for himself than many see before the retirement. Thawon and the rest of the BMIG team are constantly working to learn more and improve their skillsets and knowledge bases.

Elijah moved in with Kyle after deciding to take a leave of absence from The Wharton School of Business to work full time in Private Equity Real Estate with Bridge Investment Group in Salt Lake City, and ever since the three have been working to build companies aimed at improving the investing experience for everybody from those just beginning to extremely sophisticated investors.
