Technically speaking we already covered the 4C-Trading course back when it was created under CM branding. However, we never dived too deep into it and aside from that, it had quite some quality updates and additions in the meantime. Hence to why we’re writing a proper review on the course today.

Ivan On Tech Academy Crypto Course Review

Ivan On Tech

4-C Trading Course Review 1

The day has come that we have the ability to finally review the Ivan On Tech course! To a certain degree this is not a trading course even though it includes a “Trading Algo Section”.

However since this is such a famous piece of education in the Crypto Space we do think it’s extremely beneficial if we review the courses. First I want to give some context surrounding all this material.

The Ivan On Tech Academy isn’t something you should take lightly. And the main reason one should not take it lightly is the staggering growth in the need for “BlockChain Developers” and other professionals in the technology department of Crypto. By no means does this course leave anything to the imagination. Which will become even more clear during our in depth review.

If you don’t know how to trade, but still do day trading, you will likely see yourself losing your hard-earned Bitcoins. Day trading crypto is not meant as a gamble, so you should not use it like one. In the search for guidance many new traders end up in several telegram channels – and it worsens their situation way too often. We selected a small group of providers for cryptocurrency trading signals and put them to the test – in the most unstable times! Let’s see how they did.

4-C Trading Course Review 5

We recently wrote about the relation of the price development between BTC and altcoins, but think there might be some fundamental stuff we need to add on top. We cannot say it is a bad idea to trade altcoins in general, though we think there are several points to consider.  So, if you want to have ongoing results buying/selling Altcoin it’s important to take the right steps. Please note: it is normal that sometimes a stop loss gets hit, don’t connect to hard with your chosen altcoins – it is all about the overall percentage value, which can define you as a profitable trader.  This post is mostly about day trading altcoins, but much of the stuff shared, is also useful to know as investor.

Interview with a Signal Provider: Cryptonizers

4-C Trading Course Review 9

Recently we discussed the best crypto signal groups on Telegram. We suggested to take a look at Cryptonizers, a great company that offers valuable trading signals along with personal support – a real gem within this shady world. We had an interesting talk with the head of Cryptonizers…

Smart Options: What is you trading history? Did you started straight with Crypto and how did you built up your knowledge to create successful signals?

Cryptonizers: So before I answer the questions i would like to share a few things about me.
So I am by professional a marketer and an anti- counterfeiting specialist. I consult a few ICO projects on the marketing front and besides that work as Independent consultant to provide anti-counterfeiting solutions to brands.
Now moving to crypto, I have been in crypto for quite sometime now, as we all know a day in crypto land is a month in real world. Initially I was into forex trading but slowly moved completely to crypto, and made some extremely influential contacts really soon as crypto world is really small. Slowly we all became good friends and started and just started calling ourselves cryptonizers, which later become the name of our channel and our company. My team prefers to work behind the scene as they don’t wish to be known, so basically they made me the face of cryptonizers. I am honestly nothing without my team of analysts and devs.

Smart Options: Do you follow a Risk and / or Money Management strategy. Please elaborate.

Cryptonizers: The risk management and money management strategy is the key of being successful. The only thing I discuss everyday with my group of members on our paid advisory is this.
Three thumb rules which always need to be followed:

  1.  Greed is your worst enemy
  2. HODL is not always the best strategy, try and always book profits( some people can have varying thoughts but too all people who say holding is better. Ask yourself why and why do you feel a xyz coin will be give you returns.) I personally have seen people just holding bc of the hype, almost 95% wont know anything about NEO but all they know is it will moon but why it will moon is the main question they don’t know)
  3. Knowledge is the key to success in cryptoland

On the money management side, I always push for never investing more than 3-5% on any trade and it is always better to keep equal money invested in calls this helps you to maintain an overall win ratio.

Smart Options: How do you deal with emotions while trading? How do you handle the pressure of providing signals – especially if one does turn out not successful?

Cryptonizers: There is always stress in Cryptoland, it seems beautiful to the people on the outside but it is extremely stressful. To deal with stress discipline is the key. I personally never over trade, fix a daily goal, weekly and a monthly goal ( they must be realistic).So I never give into emotions once I am done with my personal goals I don’t care what is the market doing, I just keep a overall check nothing in specific.

There is no specific pressure to provide signals, our team has 2 analysts which have different roles and look 24*7 on good opportunities. Besides that the co-founder Danilo (an Italian developer) has made some amazing bots that help us catch so many pumps in the prepump phase.
Just a small example, a few days ago our bots showed some unusual activity on FAIR coin which I shared with our team and 2 days later FAIR coin got pumped, similar with our other special infos we provide to our small group of paid members.
I won’t dent our calls do fail, we cant control the market so when some calls go wrong we go feel the pressure as our group is open and paid members interact with us and each other in secret chat group so they can straightway complaint and show their displeasure about calls.
We try and make for such bad calls by providing them with something good always.

Smart Options: Do you have some tips for our readers, how to know that a telegram signals channel is a scam or a pump and dump group? What should the customer look for?

Cryptonizers: So the biggest tip I would like share with readers and specially people new to crypto is do not do not fall into those so called groups giving 5000% returns and showing amazing results. The biggest sign that a channel or team is scam is if offer lifetime membership, I always tell anyone to ask themselves if you could give 5000% return regularly a month why would you charge just .1 or .2 for lifetime – That doesn’t make sense guys. Normally if you follow many big groups, I won’t name them, they give 10-20 signals a day and obviously out of that 5-7 will hit targets they just promote those calls and never ever talk about the calls that failed. Another Important factor is after enrollement support which has become our USP to be honest. See once you pay someone a lifetime fee they do not have any incentive to cater to you or cater to your questions. Besides that we take great pride that every single one of our paid members get 1-1 attention. I personally sometimes go overboard. For example,  one time I called a guy who was holding PPC to tell him personally to sell it if he hasn’t sold besides that we cater to every single question be it silly or something extremely technical.

To some up just look for these main factors in a group:

  1. The returns they claim
  2. What type of support are they offering
  3.  Never opt for lifetime service
  4. Stay away from groups that provide so called VIP signals, as all of them are pump groups.

Smart Options: Thank you for taking the time for this interview.

No Moon, No Lambo, Just Hodl – The Psychologicial Anatomy of Shitcoin Trading

4-C Trading Course Review 11

Lately been on Facebook? Telegram? Reddit? No? Any other social media platform? Surely you are subscribed to a discussion group on any platform to satisfy your needs for juicy crypto infos.
People heard more and more about other people that made some decent money fast with cryptos and want to get in, which is no wonder – they want their part of the cake. So far so understandable, however what happens in social media is no fun anymore, it is dumb.

Technical analysis (TA) is very close to a gamble, when it comes to low volume coins. One has to understand that technical analysis relies on volume and liquidity of the markets, furthermore it reflects often the algorithms of the big institutional traders like banks or big hedgefonds – and last but not least the emotions and sentiments of the traders. That works for FX, but do that on dead shitcoins and you are going to be burned. But also coins with volume in crypto trading rely onto emotional behaviour to a a high level and are therefore hard to predict, maybe a bit like your girlfriend when she gets emotional. You know her, yeah, but the reactions tend to be differently from what you expected.

Look, this coin floored since days, consolidated very deep – it MUST breakout!!!One!11!!!

Yes, likely to break out south, though – as the rest of it is rare holders recognized they have some capital bound onto a dead fish and want to get at least something out. This is also one reason why it is dumb to say HODL on each and every coin. “I have 10k dodgecoins, what shall I do?” Reply: “HODL!!!!” – Heck, no – you should not HODL a dead coin, this makes no sense.  Let’s be honest, it often happens like this:

Facebook Group participant Fred :

$ASScoin is going to moooooooon sooooooon. Very good whitepaper, I read all the details, great team with many *vic -ending names, fantastic tech, so complicated I don’t even understand what it is about. Hop on, this is gonna be a $10 coin easily in a few month. #lambo #moon #hodl

Newbies are reading it, desperate wannabe-overnight-rich action takers are reading it and a fraction of them will comment it – many will just buy silently, not doing any research at all. Why taking the effort, Fred has it already done and vouched for it. Hey, he has 1k facebook friends, can’t be wrong at all. Despite the low volume of the coin and the many groups Fred has posted this, they generated a little spike on $ASScoin. Some recognize what’s going on and sell of again quickly, feeling dumb, but ok, just a few dollars in fees and a bit of rate loss. Others though are still waiting for $ASScoin to skyrocket, having $50 in it, the order form of the lambo dealer is pre-filled already – but nothing happens. Now all these people sitting in reddit, forums, facebook and telegram groups seeing an other follower of Fred asking

Hey, whatcha all think will $ASScoin moon soon?

The question hits the 30 others, that bought $ASScoin as well, some maybe with more significant money, some might have thrown the kid’s college money or their pension on it.

YES, just HODL, HODL FOR YA DEAR LIFE, MOON soooooooon, then lambo for everyone. HOOOODDDLLLLLLLLL I am all in! CAN’T go wrong!!!!!1111!!!!!!!! It is only a loss if you sell at a loss!!!!11!11ONE!! It is at discount rate right now!!!!! I am selling my wife, the kids and my kidney to buy morreeeeee!

Seeing this kind of dedication, the newbies just don’t want to be the noob that sells at a loss and holds tightly. Even throws some extra packs on it, but waits and waits and waits. No moon, no lambo, just hodl. The thing the newbie has fallen for, was the dream, the emotion of another one. Everyone can publish everything in the internet. There are many reasons why you will find wrong informations within cryptoverse:

  • Newbies, that want to appear as Pro seeking to get attention
  • Wrong TA (Technical Analysis) applied
  • Correct TA applied to no volume charts, bad price action
  • People actually trying to convince themself, that their decision to hold is the correct one. Sellers are weak hands, only hodlers are right, generally speaking
  • Paid advertizers posting to groups to push ICOs
  • People want to push their held shit coins
  • People spreading myths / beliefs that they just overtook from someone else
  • Pump and Dumps

It is all about the strategy you use and not to fall for experienced traders, exploiting low volumes for pump and dump actions. First at all we need to have a differentiated look at what you do with your money. Decide if you want to invest or if you want to do day trading.


You do your research on projects, allocate a defined percentage of your funds to the project and buy tokens for it. First think of how many projects you will be able to follow in the long run. Subscribe to their social media channels, their website rss, their github. Let’s say you think you will be able to follow 5 projects, so you split your total amount of funds by 5 and use each portion for one project you want to invest in, by buying their tokens.

Before you buy anything you want to do your research, a basic overview can be achieved by asking these questions:  1. Which problem does this project solve? And has it realistic chances to do so? 2. How is the realisition of it, is there something done already like an existing MVP? 3. How is the github activity? 4. How is the team? 5. Is there an actual use for the token itself? You can go along with the very detailed and good methodology of Cryptohydra. Then you put a % of your allocated money into it and simply forget about the price of the coin, just follow the news of the project to check if it is doing any good. Alternatively, if you want some more action, you can create a portfolio and check the price development. Once you see a 100% increase you could withdraw 50% and leave the rest in your wallet. These 50% can be used for new projects you like to invest in. So you diversify more and more over time. Diversification is key if you want to grow your account hands-free. Theoretically speaking, you spread your money over promising projects and hope that some of them skyrocket, compensating the loss on others with profits.


If you want to do day trading on coins / tokens, you want to be extra careful. Technical analysis might help on coins with volume like  or , but will give you rarely reliable informations on $ASScoin.  Be prepared for a long and painful road, if you want to learn it. However, it is advisable to learn some basics like support & resistance to find good entry points for investing (like in the prior paragraph) to optimize the outcome. If you want to take a deeper look into daytrading Coinigy could be a first step into learning it.

Some words I found on Bitcointalk. Obviously I don’t agree in every case with it, but I found it entertaining enough to share:

I type d that tyitle twice because I knew it was wrong the first time.  Still wrong.  w/e.  GF’s out at a lesbian bar, BTC crashing WHY AM I HOLDING? I’LL TELL YOU WHY.  It’s because I’m a bad trader and I KNOW I’M A BAD TRADER.  Yeah you good traders can spot the highs and the lows pit pat piffy wing wong wang just like that and make a millino bucks sure no problem bro.  Likewise the weak hands are like OH NO IT’S GOING DOWN I’M GONNA SELL he he he and then they’re like OH GOD MY ASSHOLE when the SMART traders who KNOW WHAT THE FUCK THEY’RE DOING buy back in but you know what?  I’m not part of that group.  When the traders buy back in I’m already part of the market capital so GUESS WHO YOU’RE CHEATING day traders NOT ME~!  Those taunt threads saying “OHH YOU SHOULD HAVE SOLD” YEAH NO SHIT.  NO SHIT I SHOULD HAVE SOLD.  I SHOULD HAVE SOLD MOMENTS BEFORE EVERY SELL AND BOUGHT MOMENTS BEFORE EVERY BUY BUT YOU KNOW WHAT NOT EVERYBODY IS AS COOL AS YOU.  You only sell in a bear market if you are a good day trader or an illusioned noob.  The people inbetween hold.  In a zero-sum game such as this, traders can only take your money if you sell.
