A Framework To Successfully Invest In Web3

GM DOers!

The world of cryptocurrency and other high-volatility asset markets represents a potential gold mine of profit. 💰

Averaging an appreciation of 150% per year, crypto outpaces traditional investment avenues by a significant margin. 📈

However, most people end up losing money in crypto. How can that be possible with an asset that increases 150% per year? 🤦

This discrepancy stems from several key factors including greed, lack of understanding, susceptibility to FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), excessive use of leverage, risky yield farming, inadequate security measures, and improper market timing.

At Web3 Academy, we're focused on building and creating a better future for everyone, but we still want to capitalize on the upside.That’s why we are teaching about investing. 🚀

In a way… You could say this is us:

Except rather than “degening”, we invest with a smart framework to protect our investments and ensure we capitalize on the incredible upside of web3. 💪

So.. In today’s report, we want to equip you with a robust framework for investing in volatile assets, turning potential pitfalls into opportunities for sustained financial growth. 🤑

Okay… Enough babbling. Let’s get into today’s report ⏬

Why Do Investors Lose Money in Volatile Markets ❓

Most experienced traditional investors can achieve returns around 10% a year, with top-tier investors like Warren Buffet hitting around 15%. 

If you only invest in the S&P 500, that gives you around 10%/year (the average over the past 50 years).

Yet, crypto, a high-volatility asset class, yields much higher, 150%/year on average. 

This remarkable profitability, however, comes hand-in-hand with significant price fluctuations, making the troughs just as dramatic as the peaks (as you can see on the chart above).

Therefore, understanding market dynamics AND the multitude of factors, which often lead to investors losing money in these markets is crucial for investors navigating the turbulent waters of crypto.
