Learn how these 5 influencers consistently beat the market
“Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing”
If you’ve looked at the crypto markets lately, I’m sure you’ve asked yourself “how can I possibly make money in these markets?” Despite this, there always seems to be a select few that are able to profit no matter what the market is doing. So how do they do it?
We believe the key to consistent performance, when trading in any market, is continued education coupled with a framework for consistent and disciplined decision making. Investors must not only understand market dynamics and the nuances of trading, but have the tools to deeply analyze their past decisions so they can improve going forward.
To assist with this, we’ve compiled a list (in no particular order) of some of the most consistent and disciplined traders, who are not only consistent with their trading but consistently produce high quality content.

Just the start
When perfecting any skill, you must first study the information, and then test your own knowledge by putting it into practice. In school, this is done by reading textbooks, taking tests, and reviewing the answers you got wrong.
While the educational resources above are a tremendous first step in actually learning how to trade, the lack of tools for performance testing, limits the ability of a trader to grow. Without understanding why a trade went against you, it is impossible to fix your process to improve for the future.
That being said, there is a tool which helps traders record and analyze historical trading behavior.
Dcrypt Trade Journal
After becoming frustrated with excel spreadsheets, and solutions that didn’t understand the nuances of the crypto markets, we decided to build our own trade journal into the Dcrypt platform. We believe this feature will allow traders to systematize the teachings of the people above. A trader using the Dcrypt trade journal will be able to:
- Analyze historical PnL on a position and trade level
- Analyze past indicators associated with each trade/position
- Associate emotions with each trade
- Break trade analysis out for different strategies and time periods
- Associate market data with trades to determine decision
Currently, we are rolling this feature out to a private beta group. If you’re interested in obtaining early access please reach out to email@example.com
We are very excited for the things to come and will keep the community updated on how everything progresses. We wish our users and the crypto community the best of luck in the coming months.
