Everyone Makes Terrible Investing Decisions

A message from our Founder, Ray.

In 2017, I went from being a broke college student to having a mid-five-figure portfolio before graduation. A short while after, I had nothing. 

I didn’t know anything about investing or risk management back then. The only thing I knew was that watching crypto prices go up was addictive. Those feelings made me (and many others) ape into whatever coins were popular.

My few hundred dollars invested ballooned to tens of thousands in a few months. It was more money than I had in my whole life. Then, just as quickly as it came, it was all gone.

Unknowingly, I was sitting on coins from projects that turned out to be scams. Bitconnect (BCC) was a multi-billion dollar Ponzi scheme. The BCC token went from a high of $400+ to $0. 

Emotionally damaged and 90% of my portfolio wiped, I decided to double down and stay in the space. Lucky I did too. I later discovered that the red flags were obvious when using a proper research framework.

Minimize Risk to Increase Investing Success

Investing Framework

In 2018, I started working at EY as a Financial Crimes Compliance Analyst. My job was to determine if a company’s transactions made sense for its core business.

In other words, I was a professional snitch for financial institutions. 

Little did I know, the skillset I built would soon be highly profitable. Why? Because I learned how to identify suspicious activity systematically.

Applying what I learned in the corporate setting to crypto, I quickly recouped all my portfolio losses. Then I helped generate substantial wealth for my family, my friends, and myself

Dark Water Research exists to help others achieve the same.

Save Time with Dark Papers

Someone said they found the next Bitcoin. Fantastic.

Next, a savvy web3 investor would briefly skim over the project website, check for liquidity, community size and sentiment, how the protocol works, ICO details and vesting, wallet distribution, code audits, the team’s background, use-cases, revenue streams… In conclusion, it may take multiple hours to investigate one project.

How can you spot new opportunities if all of your attention is on a few projects? It’s impossible alone. That’s why we spend our time doing all the tedious investigative work for our clients.

Save Time with Dark Papers

Gain a deep understanding of a project at a fundamental level.

Poor-quality projects have defining characteristics. However, most web3 investors don’t do enough due diligence to know the difference. This investing behavior is the primary driver for violent price crashes in many projects.

To combat this, we conduct deep research on NFT and crypto projects to help investors make more informed investment decisions.

Minimize unavoidable losses.

Unforeseen circumstances often occur in web3. Protocols randomly break, hackers exploit mint contracts, founders leave projects, and many other undesired events. If you miss an update, that could lead to your holdings quickly going to $0.

That’s why we keep a close eye on any Discord chats, YouTube accounts, blog posts, or other official communications channels for a project.

Produce valuable web3 content with less work.

The cornerstone of web3 adoption is education. However, creating quality content consistently takes a lot of effort. 

Our Dark Papers convert into pillar pieces of content like informational blogs, news articles, post threads, podcasts, and video scripts.
