CTA is not a short-term trading school. It’s about holding cryptos through long periods and preferably investing during the accumulation phase or early in the Bull market phase. We are still early in the Bull phase, which is expected to last throughout 2024 and into 2025.

The two portfolios that I set up during the accumulation phase, have tripled (or almost tripled) in value: see the last two graphs below. My original portfolio is now heading towards profit again after its deep fall during the last Bear Market. Furthermore, there is growing institutional (governmental, financial, technological and public) involvement in crypto. Also, there are improving general market conditions in the U.S.A. such as stock markets reaching all-time highs and falling inflation. Finally, for people considering getting involved in Crypto, if you stay out much longer, you will miss the potential big gains in profit. For all these reasons, I’m awarding CTA, a pass grade now rather than later.

To make the most of CTA, I would advise a starting bank of about five grand. You need to consider the cost of the service and to have enough money to invest in both the Main Portfolio as well as protocols that give you more of the airdrops.

It is also wise to invest in crypto during the accumulation or early Bull phase (like now), or else you may have a long wait (like my original portfolio) to reach a lasting profit.

An overview follows of my original portfolio since my last update (about seven months ago):

The Main Portfolio

Since my last update, the crypto market has entered the bull phase (according to Michael Mac, the CTA head, and the general crypto community). My portfolio has increased by $529.31. Three new coins have been added to the official portfolio and some were advised for removal (cashing out).

Acquisition Cost: $1160.14 (Completed on February 11th, 2021)

Minimum Bank: $410.67 (Jan 1st, 2023)

Maximum Bank: $2197.55 (May 10th, 2021)

Number of Profitable Months: 20/36

Number of Crypto coins in the main portfolio: 16 (includes one stablecoin)

Current Bank: $1113.77 (February 29th, 2024)

Profit/Loss Since Acquisition: -$46.37

Return on Bank since Acquisition: -4.00 %

The graph below shows the daily value of the portfolio from March 1st, 2021 through February 29th, 2024:

I have still not reached my previous maximum bank value. Note that the unforeseen onset of both COVID-19 and the Ukraine War led to strong Bear Market Conditions. But despite that and the collapse of the FTX crypto-currency exchange; crypto has recovered and I expect my maximum bank value to be exceeded easily during the current Bull phase. We have only been in the Bull Phase for about five months.


Ten new airdrop-free tokens occurred since my last update. I qualified for two of them; some members qualified for more (or all) of them as they have much bigger crypto investments. One of my airdrops (the DYM crypto-tokens) was by far my best one to date worth around $250. I’ve staked half of these tokens and re-invested half on other tokens. This may increase my chances of getting more future airdrops. Many CTA members with larger airdrop-associated staking investments have received some free airdrops worth thousands of dollars.

There are also a total of 10 coins being staked that are associated with potential/acquired airdrops. Yearly rates for these coins are 1.7 % to 38.2%. One coin, CRBRUS, was being staked but is now defunct. Total gains from my airdrop-associated staking is $20. Total gains, here, are expected to increase during the Bull phase, and dramatically if any of the cryptos go moonshot.


Currently, eight of the portfolio coins are being staked. I’m staking six of these as fees for the others do not make it worthwhile for my smaller-scale investments. The annual interest rate on my portfolio-staked coins varies from 3.1% to 13.6%. The total profit to date from all my portfolio-staked coins is $43.6. Total gains, here, are expected to increase during the Bull phase, and dramatically if any of the cryptos go moonshot.

Short Term Trades (Buying and Selling the same crypto coin)

None to report.

Two additional portfolios:

Here are the results of two additional portfolios that I have set up during the current accumulation phase. The first portfolio utilizes the three main CTA crypto coin holdings (Bitcoin, Ethereum and one other). The second portfolio is the first plus two other CTA-recommended coins. They were set up using Dollar Cost Averaging (see The Mini Glossary) over about 10 weeks. The graphs start at the date when the 10-week set-up periods were completed. The green lines are the highest reached values and the red lines are the lowest reached values. Both portfolios show significant gains (around 200%).

Three Coin Portfolio

November 25th, 2023 until March 3rd, 2024

Five Coin Portfolio

December 29th, 2022 until March 3rd, 2024

There are so many positives now in the crypto-sphere: Bitcoin ETFs have been approved with many of the huge financial institutions like Black Rock becoming involved; Ethereum ETFs are warming up; and the forthcoming Ethereum Mainnet Cancun Hard Fork (which will improve Ethereum transactions per second – a great deal for end users).

It is important to note that Michael Mac believes that cryptos are still vastly underpriced and that we are in the early days of the Bull Market. Note during a Bull Market there are still dips in prices during the run – it’s not a straight line up. Remember that CTA will advise which coins to buy, when to purchase, when to sell, when and what coins to stake, and how to prepare for airdrops. In addition, tracking forms are available. Furthermore, tax issues and security information are elucidated. There is also a very active Facebook group, where admin members are usually fast to respond to queries. Currently, as we move further into the Bull Market, profit-taking protocols are being released.

Newsflash: as of today, March 12th, 2024, my original portfolio is now in profit at $1317.09; the five-coin portfolio stands at $3542.07; and the three-coin portfolio stands at $3269.50

Mini Glossary:

The Accumulation Phase typically happens before an uptrend. The Accumulation Phase is over when the market sentiment moves from a negative stance to a neutral one. During this phase, a lot of money is both entering and leaving the market at the same time.

Airdrops involve crypto projects sending free tokens en masse to their communities in a bid to encourage adoption.

Altcoin. If the entire cryptocurrency universe expanded from a single point, sort of like a big bang, that point of singularity would be Bitcoin, the first cryptocurrency. Ethereum introduced another region to the blockchain universe: one that allowed for innovations such as smart contracts and decentralized applications (dapps) to flourish. An altcoin is every cryptocurrency that’s not either Bitcoin or Ethereum.

The Bear Phase is defined as the period when the prices of stocks, securities, or other assets (like cryptos) decline significantly and persistently.

A Blockchain is a type of shared database that differs from a typical database in the way it stores information; blockchains store data in blocks linked together via cryptography. Different types of information can be stored on a blockchain, but the most common use for transactions has been as a ledger. In Bitcoin’s case, blockchain is decentralized so that no single person or group has control—instead, all users collectively retain control. Decentralized blockchains are immutable, which means that the data entered is irreversible. For Bitcoin, transactions are permanently recorded and available to everyone.

A Bull Run is defined as a period where the majority of investors are buying, demand outweighs supply, market confidence is at a high, and prices are rising,

The Cancun Hard Fork is a part of the Ethereum Cancun-Deneb (Dencun) upgrade, which is a major update to the Ethereum network that aims to improve its scalability, security, and usability. This will increase the network’s capacity and reduce transaction fees.

The Dymension ecosystem is a dynamic and expansive network of modular blockchains, known as RollApps.

Dollar-Cost Averaging is the practice of systematically investing equal amounts of money at regular intervals, regardless of the price of a security. Dollar-cost averaging can reduce the overall impact of price volatility and lower the average cost per share.

DYM Crypto Coins are the native tokens of the Dymension ecosystem.

An Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) is a type of pooled investment security that resembles a mutual fund but can be purchased or sold on a stock exchange like a regular stock.

A Moonshot is a project or venture (like a crypto coin) that aims to achieve a very ambitious or groundbreaking goal, often involving innovation and creativity. Moonshot crypto coins can increase up to 100x in value.

NFT stands for “Non-Fungible Token.” At a basic level, an NFT is a digital asset that links ownership to unique physical or digital items, such as works of art, real estate, music, or videos. Non-fungible more or less means that it’s unique and can’t be replaced with something else. For example, a bitcoin is fungible — trade one for another bitcoin, and you’ll have the same thing. A one-of-a-kind trading card, however, is non-fungible. If you traded it for a different card, you’d have something completely different.

Spot Bitcoin ETF is an Exchange Traded Fund that tracks the price of Bitcoin directly.

Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies that attempt to peg their market value to some external reference like the U.S. dollar.

Staking cryptocurrencies is a process that involves committing your crypto assets to support a blockchain network and confirm transactions. Staking can be a great way to use your crypto to generate passive income especially because some cryptocurrencies offer high interest rates for staking.
