Who to trust

It’s hard to know who to trust in trading, especially crypto. A selection of the dangers include:

  • Fake websites and social accounts
  • Viruses, malware and spyware
  • Reviewers promoting projects only for money
  • Exit scams
  • Education that teaches you to overtrade, earning more commission for brokers
  • Expensive courses that aren’t worth it
  • Free advice that isn’t very good
  • Unrealistic claims including overfitted backtesting of scripts
  • Pump and dump schemes

And a special shoutout to crypto Twitter—an echo chamber of myopic monkeys swinging constantly between euphoria and panic.

So I’ve collected a few people here who are honest and competent.

Trading mentors

If you really want to get good at something, you need to pay an expert to teach you. There’s no shortcut. Or rather, that is the shortcut.

  • Mr Anderson @TrueCrypto28. I joined his study group. I know from this experience that he’s an expert trader and a dedicated teacher.
  • The Wolf Of All Streets @scottmelker. An interesting and skilled trader with a reasonably priced newsletter. On my list to subscribe to when I have a little more time.
  • filBfilB. A great analyst of Bitcoin. Has a paid group with his own indicator. I assume it’s good.
