The Real World Crypto Campus Review – 7 Lessons You Learn (Top 7 Crypto Mistakes Beginners Make)

October 26, 2023

The Real World by Andrew Tate has a course called the Crypto Campus. It is one of the most popular courses in The Real World. Cryptocurrency has made people millions of dollars while others have lost their entire investment.

We'll discuss the following topics in this article.

  1. Top 7 crypto mistakes beginners make
  2. Crypto Campus Overview
  3. If crypto trading and investing are worth it in 2024,
  4. If the Crypto Campus is a pyramid scheme.
  5. If getting into crypto can pay you a passive income.

I'll also talk about how crypto trading/investing compares to the popular local lead generation business model that is paying people a residual income each month.

Top 7 Crypto Mistakes Beginners Make

1. Investing More Than You Can Afford To Lose

Millions of beginner crypto investors make the mistake of investing more money than they can afford to lose, despite countless "gurus" telling them to only invest what they can afford to lose. These people saw how Dogecoin rose from under a cent to over 20,000% simply because Elon Musk mentioned it on the Saturday Night Live night and thought all coins would do the same. They don't realize how volatile the market is and immediately sell their positions when they see the price go down. All they're filled with is regret for having invested more than they can afford to lose.

2. Not Doing Research

Another big mistake beginners make is not doing any research or crypto analysis. They don't follow any of the crypto projects like Cardano, Algorand, or XRP (Ripple) on social media to stay up to date with the progress they're making, they don't look up crypto terminology to understand what is being said and they don't learn how to read charts. All most beginners do is listen to YouTubers who only speculate on what might happen in the market. If you rely only on what they tell you, it could be detrimental to your portfolio. By the time a YouTuber uploads a video, you might be too late to buy or too late to sell. Do your own research and know what you're getting into.

3. Not Securing Your Crypto Investment

There are various ways to secure your crypto investment. Beginners are either too lazy or don't know what their security options are. There have been many cases of people's crypto accounts getting hacked and they can never recover their investment. If they invested more than they can afford to lose and didn't secure their crypto, they're in for a tough time. It's wise to look into hot and cold wallets to see which one is a good option for you and your portfolio. After all, it's your investment you're dealing with. Can you afford to lose your investment? If not, lock up your crypto.

4. Sending Coins to the Wrong Address

This can happen to anyone by accident and there's nothing you can really do once you send crypto to the wrong wallet. Few people will send it back because it's hard to trace. You may want to send your crypto from one wallet to another. For example, you may want to send the XRP you bought on UpHold to your Coinbase wallet. If you're in a rush and press the wrong thing or don't triple confirm you pasted your address correctly, you may lose it all. This happens all the time to beginners and even people with more experience in the space. If you lose your crypto, you most likely won't recover it.

5. Not Taking Profits

Many beginners don't take profits when the market is up because they are set to only take profits when they see the price go parabolic. This is a mistake because they don't realize that the crypto market is volatile. It goes up and down often. If you don't take profits when you have the chance to, you may miss out on doubling or tripling your initial investment and will have to wait until the next bull run before you can take any profits. This mindset of not taking profits sets you back in your pursuit of making money online with crypto. You might as well look for another online business model to get into.

6. Making Trades Based on Emotion

Many crypto investors make trades based on emotion. When beginners see a coin have a jump in price action and see how Bitcoin went to $60K, they FOMO into Bitcoin or any other coin that does something similar. They have a Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) and they think the price will continue to go up. But as we know, the price has dropped to $19K at one point. Making emotional decisions is the worst thing you can do when investing or trading. Your emotions and FOMO can make you invest in a bad crypto project, invest too late, make you lose all your money within minutes, and more. This is also discussed by Invest Diva in their courses for women entrepreneurs.

7. Panic Selling

When beginners see the price of a crypto dropping exponentially, they immediately panic and sell their crypto. Their thought process is, "let me not lose all of my crypto, let me at least keep some of my money". That way of thinking was understandable during the Terra Luna collapse. In most cases, though, there's no need to panic sell. There is a lot of price movement up and down that takes place. If you've done your homework on a legit crypto project and invested what you're ok with losing, there's no need to panic. Volatility is normal in crypto, so don't be surprised.

Is the Real World Crypto Campus a pyramid scheme?

The Real World Crypto Campus is not a pyramid scheme. It is a legit, in-depth online training that teaches you a lot more than you'll learn on your own or on YouTube. Of all training that is included within the Real World, which includes the Amazon FBA Campus, the Crypto Campus might be the only course that is very much under-priced for all the value you're given.

Each lesson ends with a quiz that won't let you continue on in the course if you get the answers wrong. You actually have to prove that you're learning as you go through the course. 

If you're a complete beginner to crypto, the $49 dollar price tag of TRW is worth it if only to go through the Crypto Campus on the platform Andrew Tate put together. You can also check out information on automated crypto trading via The Crypto Code by Joel Peterson and Adam Short.

Is trading crypto worth it in 2024?

Trading crypto in 2024 can be worth it if you know what you're doing. For this to be the case, you need to do plenty of market research and avoid all the common mistakes beginners make.

If you're looking to earn a true passive income with crypto, it will not happen, even if you jump into a staking pool. You've always got to monitor the price action just in case you want to either take profit of increase your position, or if you want to sell. Crypto is better off as a long term investment because it's not a get rich quick scheme or short term solution to your money problems.

Making money trading crypto can work and can exponentially multiply your investment faster than day trading, but overall, it doesn't offer all the benefits local lead generation does. 

Final Thoughts

With local lead generation, there is no volatile market. You don't need to read charts all day, think of complex trading strategies, or even worry about investing more than you can afford to lose.

All you're doing is sending leads to local small business owners and getting paid hundreds and thousands of dollars each month off of your digital real estate.

This tree care site I built over 7 years ago, when I became an entrepreneur, is still paying me $2,000 per month on autopilot.

Local lead generation

All I did was build this site that offers tree care services, ranked it on Google in Grand Rapids, Michigan and sent all the leads to a local small business who needs more work each month. 

After I rank the site, leads are generated, and my job is practically done. I may check on the sites now and then to make sure everything is running well, but that's it. Automate your monthly payments and your income becomes passive and recurring.

To learn how you can achieve financial freedom and become cash and time rich, without having to invest in risky crypto projects or stress out as you read trading charts, check out the local lead generation training program.
