How to find a 10-100x shitcoin gems consistently?

Making big money in a short amount of time is why hunting micro cap gems can be life changing for small time investors...

How to become a gem huntooorrr
A 🧵
Some of you are here to get rich quick and make it in one bullrun

Whilst there is some success stories, there is survivorship bias
Meaning you only hear the success stories

For every success story there might be 5 sad stories

Gem hunting is fun, but risk management is key
Common Mistakes for the Gem Hunters:

- Too Aggressive, not hedging their portfolio with stablecoins or blue chips

- If BTC dips 30%, your micro cap shitcoins can dip 80%

- Understand where you are in the cycle before aping into high risk high reward micro caps Image
- Don't rely on other people and ape blindly.

- Develop your own intuition, your edge is built by becoming an expert

- Cultivate your Inner Ape

- Don’t be afraid to lose $$, Ape to Learn

-You'll get rugged. If 2/10 do a 10x & you get rugged 8x, you still doubled your money
Anyone remember this guy?
Turned 8k into 5 billion.

While that may be the best trade in history and not a realistic goal...

The point is being early to new crypto projects can be life changing!

Finding these projects early is a skill and can be learned.

Over time you will get a nose for hunting alpha

It will take time to become a proficient hunter.

Don't get wiped out before develop your edge

Here are the things that will help you develop & improve this skill:
- Get comfortable with DEX's -

Coins that are listed on a Centralised Exchange (Binance, FTX, Kraken, Coinbase) usually already have a pretty high Marketcap (MC).

The law of big numbers: if Bitcoin has a MC of 1 trillion, it needs 99 trillion to do a 100x. Image
Some shitcoin with 1 million MC will need 99 million. That can happen in a couple days in crypto.

Don't want to get involved in Dex's and still find gems? These will be low caps in the 10-100m mc range.

@kucoincom is your best bet. It has the most low caps
- (Whale) Wallet Watching -

Last year I was watching whale wallets & youtube influencer wallets.

I had notifications set-up for every movement.

An influencer bought unknown token that just launched called $OHM.

I aped first, did research later.
Knowing the influencer was gonna talk about it in his next youtube video.

I was gonna flip it for a 2-5x. Then read through docs on discord and became intrigued and an ohmie

It then became my biggest portfolio booster with a 40x during mini bear last year.
More information on how to become an expert whale watcher and on-chain wizard are through @OnChainWizard. You can also follow his new wallet where he publicly goes from 5k to 7 figures
- Become a Twitter Expert-

- Advanced Search on Twitter is Your Best Friend
- You can search for your favourite (recent) shitcoin e.g. hyped token $XYZ
- Choose a date range of ~ 1st month of token launch
- Order search results chronologically Image
- You'll find the FIRST people who EVER shilled it on twitter
- Follow them for future alpha drops & Whitelists
- Follow enough of them and you'll basically be part of insider circles
Found a new Listing or promising gem?

Check out twitter. Who are the followers? Are there big names in there, VCs? Big names in DeFi?

Less than 10k followers?
You're still early anon...

👉 Check out their discord next
- Stalking Discords -

Because I was early to $OHM and there was a big community of innovators in DeFi hanging out in Discord, I found out about $KLIMA and $TOKE early.

Spending time in discord can be time consuming.
Find vibrant communities early and you'll find that will lead you on a trail of other gems.

Finding the first one is the hard part.
If you learn about a listing, you can quickly do your due diligence:
- Check Twitter
- Do pulse check in Discord (search bar is your friend)
- Tokenomics?
- Watch on chain for red flags (% held by team/founders/whales)
- Partnerships
Next level MICRO gem hunting:

This legend @shitc0in finds tokens a couple hours old less than 200k marketcap.

To do a few more checks to minimise chance of a rug, check out this thread:
- Leverage your Attention -

Your time, energy & attention span is limited each day

Don't rely 100% on yourself to find gems.

Your network makes you aware of new alpha

If you follow 100 quality Crypto Alfa hunters,
Now you've another 100 pairs of eyes searching discord and twitter for you.

Focus your twitter feed, discords, etc. on one specific sector.

Cut the noise, get rid of useless accounts.
Low caps your thing? Pursue that solely. #NFT's? Follow every project, immerse with those accounts. Get whitelisted early

So much information comes in every day between all the charts, twitter, discord, telegram feeds, group chats, find a balance, know when to chill
- Understand Meta Game -

Understanding the $OHM fork narrative last year was extremely profitable.

What did that mean?

Finding new forks of ohm early on other chains and getting whitelisted was extremely profitable for a couple of individuals… Image
- Evils vs. Good Seed Investors -

Sometimes being early still means there were seed investors even earlier.

Will you get dumped on?
To flip or hold a % for long term?

Some 'good' VC's invest for the long term.

Other 'evil' VC's have no thesis, vision or conviction.
They fund short-vesting projects with a goal to quickly flip and extract value from a bull market. Here you find out where VCs lie on the spectrum

Do a quick due diligence and APE!

I used the infographic on capital rotations from bitcoin -> high to mid to low caps from the one and only @SecretsOfCrypto

Should you sell your (Cosmos)Airdrops 🪂?

You received an airdrop and now you are left with the decision:
- Sell now
- Sell in 1 wk, 1 month, 3 months?
- Hodl for life (long term)?

In this 🧵 I look at the historical data for highest profits 1/19
Wonder how to qualify for airdrops?

Yesterday I made a thread on upcoming & rumoured Cosmos Airdrops 🪂

If you haven't seen it already:

So let's dive in...
$250 invested in $JUNO in Dec yielded a $NETA airdrop $45k+ worth two months later 💰 💰 💰

But why hodl, when the airdropped token might go to zero? Why not take profits and put it into the tried and tested BTC/ETH or your favourite blue chip? 3/19

@RaoulGMI is an incredible bright mind in the realm of macro econmics. So when Raoul speaks during these times of macro & geopolitical uncertainty, I listen.

Here is a thread with the most important distilled points.

Find the full video here:…
Economic events are much more forecastable, whereas geopolitical events have so many more variables. you have to use a decision tree structure to assess probabilities of all things that could happen and figure out how do I protect myself, can I make money out of this and
what does this all mean for the bigger picture?

I didn’t think we would get this far this fast in terms of Russia sanctions.
But I’ve already been expecting a global slowdown with the economy, so I’ve already started to position myself that way by buying bonds,some gold and US$

For me Crypto is about asymmetrical opportunities.
This thread is not about price predictions, I have no crystal ball. All you can do is have good risk management and take those assymetrical set-ups.
Here's a thread explaining why I think this is the case for $KLIMA.
This will be a monster thread, with tons of alfa and a collection of many resources at the end if you want to understand Klima more from a technical perspective.

All metrics from this thread can be checked here:…
If this is your first time hearing about KLIMA or OHM and you have no idea about the mechanics behind the protocol, how the prisoner's dilemma & (3,3), (🌳,🌳) fits into all this, I suggest you read these first:……
