Early Life and Education

Willy Woo was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to New Zealand when he was a young child. After graduating from university, Woo started a career in tech startups, developing apps for mobile devices (before the iPhone). After exiting several of his startups, Woo eventually became a stock trader and invested in gold in the 2008 financial crisis.

While working on another project a few years later, Woo learned about Bitcoin from a colleague and he equated it with digital gold. During 2013 and 2014, while Bitcoin's price was sliding from over $1,000 per coin to under $300, Woo began acquiring Bitcoin and learning more about how it worked.

Woo eventually became an expert at studying “on-chain metrics” for Bitcoin, which is an evaluation of the data on the Bitcoin blockchain network. Sharing these metrics online, Woo has amassed a massive following, with over 1 million followers on Twitter and one of the most popular paid newsletters on Substack called "The Bitcoin Forecast."
