James Altucher is guy that is always selling something. During the internet boom, he was selling stock tips, then he was selling books about investing and now he moved to cryptocurrencies. So, should you consider James Altucher’s, the self proclaimed expert and crypto trader, tips and advice when it comes to crypto?
James Altucher is primarily a marketing guy. If you are a marketing expert, you are pretty much limited to be a crypto expert as well. So, short answer on should you trust this guy would be – probably not. Or anyone selling similar service for that matter.
There is rarely any worthwhile and actionable advice in these types of courses, newsletters, groups or whatever. It is usually basic information with lots of upsells – marketers usually bait you into subscribing to one service and once you see that that service offers nothing much, you get lured into buying the upsell that promises the actual “gems and getting rich guides”.
Once you buy into that and get to the “next level” – you experience the same, basic information with no substance and another bait for another upsell.
As one Redditor put it nicely:
And another Redditor strikes a similar note in his comment:
I’ve been following James’s podcast and blog for many years and always loved his content but I agree with this post 100%. His crypto news is a TOTAL waste of time if not a borderline scam. I’ve spent several weeks following his updates and it’s 99.9% fluff and stories about the past and future with no actionable advice like he promises. This is unfortunate as it takes a ton of credibility away from his name. I’ll still be listening to his podcast as he has good guests, but likely will never trust any services he’s selling again.
If you buy the service and want to cancel it – guess what? That is not too easy as, per the barely visible refund policy (blue text on blue background), you have to sell an actual, physical mail. Even if you did that, your mail would be “probably lost” somewhere along the way and refund time would have been expired.
So, in conclusion:
James Altucher is a good writer, marketer and podcast host but his crypto service is not good and you should avoid it.
