Benjamin Cowen - Why Most Crypto Price Predictions Are Wrong: Traders Lose Money Because They Don’t Understand Market Cycles


Founder & CEO at Into The Cryptoverse

I regularly get asked for predictions regarding the future price of Bitcoin and Ethereum. And while many people are keen to get my thoughts on the latest altcoin or a new DeFi project that’s “making waves”, I always urge people to get a better understanding of how the markets work and the nuances of trading and investment strategies before ploughing hard-earned cash into the latest rumour.

The reality is that there are no easy answers. Successful crypto trading and investment comes down to being disciplined, strong technical analysis and increasing your knowledge of the space. There are some crazy price predictions out there on the wild web and if you’re not informed you could find yourself in hot water.

With such a wealth of innovation in a short period of time, it is inevitable that the crypto and DeFi space has attracted a barrage of misinformation and hyperbole.

Which is just one reason I’m delighted to welcome today’s guest.

Ben Cowen is someone I’ve been keen to have on the show for some time now. A former nuclear engineer, researcher and financial analyst, he now hosts the incredibly successful Into the Cryptoverse YouTube channel and weekly newsletter.

His unique and reliable take on the market cycles has seen him rack up over half a million subscribers, while his honest appraisals help traders, investors, and serious crypto natives make informed decisions about what is happening now, and how it will impact tomorrow.

Ben first discovered Bitcoin by chance back in 2011 after taking a class in cryptography, but it was only in 2017 when he started to analyse the data and research the market full time. He studied nuclear engineering and earned both a Masters and a PhD before working as a research assistant at NASA.

Ben is all about the details and his easy-to-follow, no nonsense analysis is some of the most insightful cryptocurrency education you’ll find, particularly for those who want to dive deeper into the metrics that are driving markets.

Ben believes that most of the short-term price predictions we have seen recently have been “extremely wrong”, and we must strive to be realistic with our expectations on prices in crypto. It is far more beneficial to be flexible, because as Ben points out:

“Nothing in crypto is an absolute certainty.”

While we will still likely see returns in Bitcoin, Ethereum and some altcoins that you won’t find in other asset classes, the most important step you can take today is to get informed, and Ben’s insight is the perfect place to start.

With that being said, now is a great time to consider joining our FINAL DeFi Academy Accelerator program of 2021. And places are filling up fast, so why not take this opportunity to prepare for a brand New Year armed with the necessary tools and knowledge to make a lasting change in your life.

DeFi and the blockchain will completely revolutionise the way we as consumers understand and interact with our money.

It is the reason why my team and I are going all-in and plan on spending the next 10 years teaching, understanding, investing in and profiting from this exciting new marketplace.

Lock in your spot now and be part of The Greatest Dislocation of Wealth in Human History.

Create that generational wealth that you’ve dreamed of and worked hard for your entire life. This is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for, so what’s stopping you?

In the meantime sit back and enjoy my interview with Ben, who has to be one of the most informative personalities in the ‘cryptoverse’. He has a genuine desire to help people succeed and gain a better understanding of what is happening in the markets. His unique approach cuts out all of the noise and nonsense, with solid tangible advice that you can take to the bank.
