Collective Shift, a Melbourne-founded independent crypto research and education company, has partnered with the Gold Coast-based Crypto Den – one of Australia’s leading crypto technical analysis trading educators. 

The collaboration, announced today, aims to integrate and offer content with leading Australian crypto exchanges, and provide investors with unbiased information to make informed decisions about crypto investing and trading.

Ben Simpson, Collective Shift’s founder told Stockhead this morning via email and text that he believes the partnership will offer investors “a more comprehensive understanding” of a market that is turbo-paced and ever-changing.

“The collaboration will manifest as dedicated silos of content on both the Collective Shift and The Crypto Den platforms,” explained Simpson, clarifying that it will “include recurring fundamental and technical analysis (TA) crypto content and integration across both memberships.”

Well connected

Collective Shift covers a broad range of fundamental crypto analysis that aims to provide well-rounded insights on trends and perspectives that shape the exciting, still-nascent, volatile market.

Recently, the outfit secured a $1.5 million seed funding round to collaborate with top brands such as the Australian Open and Swyftx – one of Australia’s most prominent crypto exchanges.

The Crypto Den, meanwhile, has a strong reputation locally and globally for its proficiency in technical analysis, and is well-connected in the space as the founder and organiser of the largest crypto event held in Australia to date – the Australian Crypto Convention on the Gold Coast (where crypto-tax gurus Koinly chatted with Stockhead last September). 

“By bringing together our technical analysis expertise with Collective Shift’s fundamental insights, we can assist Australian investors in making better investment decisions,” said David Haslop, The Crypto Den’s founder. 


‘Cautiously optimistic’

Collective Shift’s Ben Simpson has been travelling the globe, attending various international and local crypto events over the past year, imparting his and his team’s learnings about the space – and this includes a recent TEDx talk in Melbourne. 

What we’re keen to learn from him right now, however, are his thoughts on the current state of the crypto market. Because it’s been a pretty impressive rise for Bitcoin so far this year – up more than 70% – amid a turbulent time (when isn’t it, lately?) in the macro landscape and in the regulatory scene for the crypto industry.

“I’m cautiously optimistic on the whole,” said Simpson. “I see a very positive future for Bitcoin amid a heated regulatory and potentially very easy monetary environment.

“That’s not to say that the road won’t be bumpy along the way, however. When everyone is on the same side of the trade, markets have a funny thing of doing the opposite. And looking at previous (Bitcoin) cycles, we have seen dips in rallies like the one we’ve seen over the past three months.”
