Who is Eddie Ibanez? His Professional Career and Education
Ibanez is the CEO of the travel booking website PriceCoin. It allows clients to turn their booking points into dollars by using an innovative earning structure. The idea of PriceCoin emerged from his first company called Zenabi, an AI and advanced data analytics company.
A couple of years after Zenabi’s creation, the company received an RFP from Priceline. Priceline asked if they can replace their market automation platform with a much more robust AI platform. After a week of Proof of Concept, all the while competing with IBM, Oracle, and Palantir, Zenabi eventually got the project.
As of now, Eddie also helps the Miami Dolphins, a football team based in Miami to understand the patterns of each player and each combination of players.

Eddie Ibanez Early Life: Was he an orphan?
Ibanez was born and raised in the United States. He has, however, kept most part of his early life behind closed doors. But in early 2022, it was revealed that Eddie was brought up by a single mom in Waterloo Avenue, Philadelphia.
However, Eddie reportedly lied about his upbringing and claimed that he was an orphan. He erased all the data that would otherwise suggest he wasn’t an orphan.
Besides, as for his ethnicity, Eddie has reportedly Asian roots and belongs to an American nationality. However, if we pay attention to his last name, “Ibanez” it kind of gives a hint that he belongs to a Spanish belonging nation.
On the other hand, Eddi’s ex-wife Jackie Ibanez was born in November 1984, in Logan, Utah.
Talking about his education, he studied at New York Military Academy, shortly after his mom withdrew him from Ziegler Elementary School in Frankford. After that, Ibanez graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Besides, Ibanez is also bilingual and can speak the Spanish language fluently.
Eddie Ibanez reportedly lied about his work
Well, how unfortunate it is to know that Eddie had been lying all his life. So according to Eddie, soon after his education, he went on to work for a government agency. At the time, the tricky hacker helped to develop software that reverse-engineered the exact location of terrorists.
However, seems like everything that he said was false. He himself admitted that he had never gone overseas while working for the agency. Previously, he had claimed he went to Iraq during the US invasion in 2003.
What’s more, Eddie also said that he was a visiting associate professor at the Stern School of Business at NYU and held multiple degrees.
