MMCrypto’s Road To Becoming a Crypto Influencer
MMCrypto, also known as Chris, developed an interest in Bitcoin during the years 2016-2017.
That’s when he started a YouTube channel creating crypto content in German. He soon began collaborating with another early Bitcoiner called DaVinci, who bought Bitcoin at $1.
After gaining traction, Chris decided to switch his content to English in order to reach a broader, global audience. He set a goal of becoming the biggest crypto YouTuber in the English-speaking world. Over the years, he grew his YouTube following to over 550,000 subscribers and also built a large Twitter audience.
His journey shows how he transitioned from working in the legacy financial system to becoming a full-time crypto influencer and Bitcoin advocate. Starting with a niche audience and consistent content output were keys to growing his audience over 5+ years.
What On-Chain Data Says About the Bitcoin Price
MMCrypto proceeded to highlight the invaluable insights that on-chain data offers, allowing analysis of price movements, transaction sizes, and the distinction between profitable and unprofitable coin moves. These indicators provide a unique glimpse into investor sentiment and behavior—features that traditional markets lack.
On-chain data helps you to determine when Bitcoin is overbought or oversold. Some services make onchain data more accessible through charts and models.
He also mentioned that Bitcoin exhibited remarkably low volatility throughout the summer, hinting at a phase of consolidation and the possibility of accumulation.
Trading Tips and Mindset
MMCrypto stressed that trading should not be the sole focus for crypto investors. Investors need to understand Bitcoin's value as a long-term savings technology.
Still, success in advanced trading methods is unrealistic for most people, and a patient, long-term mindset focused on Bitcoin accumulation rather than reckless overtrading is the way to go. Losing Bitcoin to failed trades can be exponentially more costly than any temporary trading gains. Mastering trading requires extraordinary skill and should not be seen as a get-rich-quick scheme.
Macro Trends Driving Bitcoin Adoption
MMCrypto also discussed how inflation across all fiat currencies will continue rising over time. While some currencies like the US Dollar are declining slower than others, they are all "falling knives" that will eventually hit the ground.
As national currencies continue losing purchasing power, MMCrypto sees the adoption of hard assets like Bitcoin accelerating, especially in countries already experiencing high inflation. This trend has played out in places like Turkey and Argentina.
Overall, macro conditions point to increasing utility and value of decentralized digital assets over the long run compared to failing government currencies.
Crypto for Social Media
MMCrypto discussed the role of crypto in social media, and how it could be integrated. While the fundamental use case makes sense, the regulatory environment today still limits the integration of crypto for social and commercial purposes.
MMCrypto thinks adoption is happening slower than many expected, but argued that it's inevitable in the long run due to Bitcoin's continuing network effects and inflation eroding faith in fiat currencies. Regulatory resistance may slow things down, but the macro trends will force adoption anyway over the coming years in his view.
The Market Outlook
MMCrypto sees breaking the $32K resistance decisively as the trigger for Bitcoin's next major price leg up. He believes that would likely induce FOMO and double-digit weekly gains, but patience will be needed to let adoption and demand grow over the coming months.
