Lark Davis, a self-proclaimed “cheeky” and “sarcastic” personality, has been actively involved in the cryptocurrency world since 2017.
With his bold price predictions, educational content, and hilarious memes, the popular influencer has amassed an impressive following on social media, boasting over 1 million followers on both Twitter and Instagram.
Although Davis’ Twitter and Instagram accounts are like the popular kids at school, his Facebook page is the quiet kid at the end of the classroom with just 20,000 likes.
Davis was an English teacher before diving into the crypto world.
He made the bold decision to quit his teaching job in November 2017, during the “top of the bull market”.
“I’ve really enjoyed teaching…it has now flowed into my content creation.”
However, when the bull market ended, he faced a “rough time trying to make a living during a bear market.”
“There were definitely moments when I thought this was difficult, but there was never a moment when I felt I needed to go back to my job.”

Despite having over 1 million followers on Twitter, Davis didn’t have much plan to build his audience other than simply “posting consistently” over the years.
He tries to avoid just posting “all hardcore content” as he considers himself the “funny” guy with the memes and “stupid opinions”.
Davis admits it’s a mystery which tweets make it and which don’t — an “educational post could get 50 likes,” while a seemingly frivolous tweet about Dogecoin going “to the moon” gets “1,000 likes.”
What to expect on Twitter
Davis said his content is “a lot of news” and “fun stuff” as well as occasional charting and educational content from his website, The Wealth Mastery.
“Obviously there are memes there too – you gotta have fun, all just business and serious stuff [is] no fun for me.”
Davis admits he’s made mistakes, but says it’s inevitable that “if you’re posting 20 to 30 times a day, you’re not going to get much wrong.”
He regrets being a partner of Celsius and BlockFi, and things haven’t looked great after both went bankrupt, which he described as “terrible and unbelievable.”
What does he like on Twitter?
Davis enjoys having a “good feed” filled with top crypto content creators, including up-and-coming talent, because “there’s a lot to learn” from the new kids on the block, including CyrilXBT and ViktorDefi.
He’s not a fan of toadies, who definitely agree with him and prefer to be challenged.
He says the best traders “follow people who don’t share your point of view.”
“Don’t just build an echo chamber; Build a group of people who will challenge these assumptions.”
Despite Davis’ large following, he doesn’t spend much time fighting on Twitter as his attitude is “trash talk, get blocked.”
Premium quality Wagyu beef: ZachXBT and consequently half of Crypto Twitter
Twitter on-chain snoop ZachXBT accused him of blasting “low-cap projects” at his followers in September 2022, only “only to dump them shortly thereafter.” The allegations went through Crypto Twitter and still haunt him today.
Davis firmly denied the claims, but added that the incident caused a lot of “reputational damage” and was “difficult to navigate.”
“If you tell your side of the story, with allegations that are very sensational, this one [allegations] tend to be the main stories and yours tend not to get as much traction.”

Davis drew a powerful lesson from the “whole event” that transparency is key with crypto, and as a result, he began posting weekly disclosures about his online content after reflecting on his business decisions.

Davis is adamant that by the end of “2024-2025, the peak of the next cycle,” Bitcoin will “be above $100,000, possibly as high as $150,000.”
As for the rest of 2023, Davis believes we “won’t hit all-time highs” by Christmas and says a 2023 top price would be “$48,000.”
“$48,000 would be the best case; if it goes beyond that, I am positively surprised and enthusiastic.”
(Editor’s note: The magazine chatted with Davis before all the crypto banks fell over.)
Davis is particularly excited about the “layer 2 scene on Ethereum.”
“I have a feeling where do other blockchains even fit in with all this Layer 2 scaling happening?”
Davis believes Ethereum has “incredible potential” over the long term.
He believes ETH will follow along with Bitcoin and will be “well above $10,000” by the end of 2024, adding that he “won’t be surprised if that happens.”
