What You Can Learn About Crypto Now
I don’t trade crypto.
I’ve worked for 20+ years to develop my penny stock trading strategy. And I’m sticking with it.
While crypto penny stocks cross my radar, I don’t have aspirations of expanding into trading cryptocurrencies. Between teaching and trading, I don’t have time!
That being said, I don’t think trading crypto is a bad idea. In fact, I have a Trading Challenge student, Matt Monaco, who’s killing it in the super-hot crypto sector right now, and he offered to show my followers everything…

Matt’s Crypto Pivot
My student Matthew Monaco passed the million-dollar profit mark in January 2021. It was at the height of the GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME) short squeeze madness. Check out this round table I recorded with several top students, including Matt, during that insane trading week…
Here’s what I want you to take away from this post … Matt understands the importance of adapting.
He knows that if and when the market shifts, he has to change things up to stay in the game.
Transitioning to Crypto
Despite his astounding success in late 2020 and early 2021, Matthew saw stocks start slowing down in March 2021.
Manias & bubbles are fun, but they ALWAYS end badly for unprepared newbies…I've been warning since February, go back and look through my tweets. NEVER forget that singles, NOT home runs, add up the most over time & you must adapt to changing markets…or you will get decimated!

In March, Matt complains that he “only” made $22,332 trading penny stocks. But instead of just whining about it, he decided to think strategically.
Matthew wants to go where he sees opportunities. Crypto has a lot of appeal. It’s extremely volatile, for one.
And Matt spotted some patterns he recognized in altcoins. What kind of patterns? Penny stock patterns.
Yes, crypto is a different type of trading. But my biggest lessons and rules — like cutting losses quickly and sticking to trading plans — still apply.
Matt knows that (he’s an excellent student and trader). And now he’s found incredible success trading crypto and altcoins. Just look at March alone — he made $60,293 in crypto. Yep, he made nearly triple trading crypto than he did trading penny stocks that month.
Why Crypto and Why Now?
There’s no doubt crypto has been on a wild, volatile ride this year. So why crypto? Here are a few reasons — emphasis on few. We’ve had a lot of headlines centered around crypto this year:
- China’s crackdowns on digital currencies
- El Salvador adopted BTC as its national currency
- Venezuela launched its own national cryptocurrency
And that’s just a few items of big news. So what else can traders watch for?
Crypto has been trending big time since 2017. That’s when Bitcoin went from $900 to $20,000 in less than a year.
It had a huge crash following that boom. But crypto definitely caught the public eye, and it started to catch on. More and more cryptocurrencies have entered the market since then.
More recently, there have been a few incredible catalysts that have brought even more attention to crypto, including…
BTC has been up and down all year. It trended up BIG in January, then pulled back. Then it hit nearly $65,000 in April. And it pulled back again.
Now BTC is trading over $61,000. Yep, it’s volatile — and can bank some monster runs. When that happens, we can see altcoins and crypto penny stocks join in the momentum.
Part of the appeal of crypto is its lack of regulation and oversight. That could change … maybe. What’s most notable now is that the mere mention of government regulation can stir crypto runs.
Remember, it’s all about opportunity for adaptable traders like Matt. Kinda like with penny stocks.
Remember the Doge Madness?
Dogecoin is the crypto that everyone loves to hate. Just last year, it was trading for fractions of a penny.
Then in early April 2021, it was hovering at around 5 cents. Then it broke out to nearly 75 cents in May. No, it didn’t stay there.
But this kind of volatility reminds me of penny stocks…
These are the kinds of moves possible, even with a coin that started as a JOKE. And crypto is still in its infancy — meaning there’s still a lot of untapped potential.
Learn How You Can Tap Into Crypto Potential
I get it. It’s hard for some traders to take crypto seriously. But just since 2017, we’ve seen huge changes.
And traders like Matt want to help you understand everything you need to know about trading cryptocurrencies and altcoins.
According to Matt, “It’s a wildly different market but full of opportunities. Similar to penny stocks, altcoins are the Wild West. You can see 1,000%+ moves in days, but naturally, those returns come with a higher risk.”
I think it’s in every trader’s interest to dig into the world of trading crypto with Matt. Not only can you learn a new niche, but you can also better understand the overall market. That’s never a bad thing.
As for credentials? Remember, Matthew collaborated with me on my 30-Day Bootcamp for trading penny stocks.
So I know Matt is more than capable of introducing trading concepts in manageable, easy-to-absorb lessons.
