What is it going on everybody Randall here from crypto love? I am joined today by Ian ballina from Tobin, metrics what's, going on in amazing, hey. How are you Amanda, I'm doing great it's awesome to have you I'm actually really excited because I've known about you since 2017. I actually met you once in Singapore back and I think that was the very beginning of 2018, and this is the 13th on the channel so I'm very, very excited for this today, we're talking about token metrics, so I guess for people who are new to it. What is token metrics so token metrics as a data driven approach to put the currency investing so back in 2017, I was known for publicly posting my block folio and from turning about 20 grand into over five million dollars at the peak of the ico mania and That was all done transparently through my blog folio and also through my spreadsheet.
That was publicly available, where I love all my trades, all my investments and also, more importantly, my thought process and in terms of why I chose particular kryptos to invest in so we've. Taken that same approach with a spreadsheet and we've added artificial intelligence, basically machine learning to make it even more powerful and we've built this into an application that's available on the web. So that's talking metrics in a nutshell, that's pretty incredible. I mean I'm not sure if people just heard that, but you turned twenty thousand dollars into over five million dollars, that's pretty insane actually I'm curious. Do you think that that is still possible to to achieve that kind of return? Twenty thousand into five million? Yes right! So as far as she now that we're in all season and they've already been products that have done a 10x to 20 access ready. So this in a way reminds me of back in, I would say, around fall 2017, so around September or October prior to the December 2017 peak right. So I feel like basically kind of trending upwards, and now we also have leveraged trading and right. So everything has totally changed. The ICL mania is not quite there, but now we have the defy mania where lots of people are essentially following in to defy tokens, and then you also add in futures in leverage treating. So I think the returns are still there, but the tougher to come by okay.
So I had a couple other questions. I want to ask first, but then how does somebody go about doing that? Well, that's, why we took in matrix right, so we bring together our professional analysts and myself other people from from Goldman Sachs, Charles Schwab, Morgan Stanley, we go through. We do we do technical analysis, we do fundamental research, we do investment reports. We also similar to what kind of made me popular back in 2017, sharing my block folio so now, we're posting over ten different portfolio types catering to different investors, all built using our AI. So, for example, if you're, if you're really into the technology, we have a crypto currency index based purely on just code reviews, so our developers go through code reviews and we do different projects. Then we go to portfolios based off of that. If you're just a traitor, we have a fully based purely on technical analysis or currently our best performing index. Is our price prediction Index monthly, so every single month it does a rebalancing and currently that's over up over 350 percent in just three months versus Bitcoin right. So so it's doing pretty well, we have over ten indices, I would say about eleven out of twelve are outperforming Bitcoin. The average return for the index for each index so far is about a seventy four percent, so so so far, it's still pretty early we're. Just launching this today actually right, so we think this is gon na, be one of the biggest drivers to our platform, because for those who follow me back in 2017, most of them followed me because of how transparent I was with my portfolio being able to share And show how everything was being made and grown in real time so now we're doing the same thing through our platform token metrics com, that's, pretty cool, so there I guess it's it's, really incredible.
What you're able to do – and I remember back in 2017, because there was the whole ICU bubble and I was very focused on Bitcoin and people would ask me about icos and I knew about small clean super people. Ask me out icos, and I would just say: I'll just go, watch, Ian's Channel and so like now that you have this available it's awesome. But when I did when I didn't mention that I was going to be interviewing you to some people in my community, they said oh he's, a shill, and I didn't exactly ask why I suspect is because probably like some projects that didn't like at the end of 2018, pretty much everything tanked but, like I don't know, do you have anything to say about that? Yeah I mean. Is he stuck me something I've had to deal with, and I mean I would say, pop pop parts of the people or the community are in a way kind of fair and assessment, but I would say overall though I definitely do disagree with parts of it right. So I think it was just kind of from being the poster child of the ico mania right. So when all I see is you can't to tank since I was the poster child everything kind of fell on me right and I think yes, I I do have a tendency to kind of self, promote or just kind of market, but I think that's just something.
Anybody who creates continent YouTube has to do to kind of stand out out of a sea of other creators all right and for me I think we're. Maybe I could have done better, was realized. I think when the music was over with I SEOs and is the and would have been better for me to stop talking about them as much right, especially because not we not everybody, had the private access to get into the good deals right I mean so in A way I kind of did stop that back in January 2018, when I took down my spreadsheet right, because I have to pick my space, she was getting over a million visitors a month and and just the demand of trying to keep up with that was was Crazy, though, in a way, I kind of took it down at the peak of the mania, but I didn't really do a good job in terms of stopping to post content on America. Those also trying create content about nice yields, but I still haven't really recovered right. So I think I probably could have done a better job with that mm. Hmm, yes, I mean out of that and I think I think, with any with any great creator or businessperson or entrepreneur. You learn from any any mistake. Any failure just brush yourself off, learn less and get back up, create something better and so out of that comes token metrics, whereas before was a spreadsheet.
Now you have an interactive website app that people can use to kind of do all this stuff it's a lot more visual than the this spreadsheet was so. This is something that I've been playing around with a little bit and it's. Pretty is pretty awesome, all the stuff that's, all this others on there. So do you mind just kind of screen sharing it with us and just showing us a little bit around what it looks like? Yes, all right, you see my screen yep yeah, so this is talking with metrics com. So this, in a way kind of, does look familiar to those who know my spreadsheet in the past, so we go through and now we're not doing just ICS we're also doing analysis on projects trading on exchanges. Actually, I would say, probably almost over 90 of our products are on exchanges, so for those people who want to really know what to investor or buy in right now we go through and request the data right, but one of the biggest things where our audience has Asked for are basically being able to go through and create portfolios based on our ratings, so over here is our indices screen that that's launching. So the idea is we cater to different investment styles, so whether you're a trader or a value investor. So somebody who has an MS one horizon of three months to 12 months or longer we can go through and build a portfolio for you right.
So, for example, looking down here – these are the industries we have for for traders, and this is this video ROI and percentage in the last two to three months. So the best performing in index so far is our trader price reduction monthly. So if we switch to that monthly price reduction and just submit we'll go through and pull that up and you'll be able to go through and see exactly what that what this industry is holding right. So it has Algar and nebulous, loom eternity. And if we go down here it tracks the performance of this index versus Bitcoin, so Bitcoin has basically been going sideways, it's been pretty quiet in the last month or two, but this index has been performing pretty well right. Sighs you see here in about three months. The suck over 400, all right so so it's been performing pretty well and then down here. It shows all the holdings of each end of portfolio, so everything is based mainly on the predicted growth, so the price prediction, the way it works, is we take the the past price price history then, on our AI models go through and try to predict which cryptocurrency Or token has the highest predicting gain in the next 30 days, so in this case we have molecular future, which has a particular 57 percent. So all these pretty much have a political ROI gain of over 30 of so then we rebalance the portfolio based on the grades of each cryptocurrency to come up with the portfolio.
So this this and this index basically began ad at a base value at 10000 and it's already turned out to 42000 right while being diversify. Then down here we log every single trade and this portfolio mix this side index mix right, so the last Trajan made of so on May basically sold all these. Then in box I'm deke red right, so everything is being logged so but let's let's say you're on really into so. The price prediction is not looking at fundamentals at all right, so it's also the most risky right, so basically high risk. High reward is looking just purely at price, but let's say you want to. You, want something: that's, more long term right, your Valley investor, with a longer time horizon. So this is a question that yes asked my committee a lot. What are the best cryptocurrencies to invest in long term right, so you can come in here, I'll pick annual right, so let's say I want to rebalance my portfolio once a year, so I pick my portfolio once a year and I and that's it so this is For somebody who wants long term capital gains very seriously as opposed to it having short term capital gains here in the US where they basically charge you more tax wise. This is a tax efficient portfolio, so it goes through here and gives you a recommended portfolio. I mean obviously this these are just kind of our opinions and our analysis.
Nothing here is any type of investment advice, first sight, but it's a good starting point to building a portfolio. So in this case, our models think the best ten to cryptic wrench is to hold automatic etherium meal, finance, Cardno, music, oh Bitcoin, maker and cosmos and and then down here. It basically shows the ROI of each portfolio versus Bitcoin at this point in time. So this this has a 88 return versus Bitcoin, which is currently been going sideways at around 2 to 3. So this gives you exposure to all kinds of all kinds. Some some. I cap coins some low cal coins, but we go through and it finds the best lookup coins to hold right. So it supposed to just just kind of dumpster diving in this getting any kind of a out coining we go through and try to find the best of coins and have potential for growth. You know and down here it basically breaks down the portfolio holding there and down here it basically goes through and logs every time is there a balancing every time there's a change. Maybe it tracks it right. So this think of this is kind of great too, but some people haven't when we formed a pass with my blog folio, so we're kind of bringing this back, but this caters to different investment styles. So, as we mentioned before, whether you're a trader, a value investor, how often you want to rebalance your portfolio with us quarterly annually or there's something that's really based on fundamentals, or if you want to only invest in products that have good technology.
You also have portfolios based off of that, so I think this kind of gives gives people the best of both worlds. Mm. Hmm, yeah, it's, really awesome, there's a lot of stuff that goes into it. So you said it uses AI and machine learning. In order to do it, yes right, so if we go here so we came drilling too so let's go into a project, that's trending at the moment, so we've got zero X, for example. So we go through. We gather lots of different data points, so we gather for the fundamentals. We got the technical analysis technology so, for example, going through here so similar to my spreadsheet and what people have known me for in the past. You gather different data points. We put all this into our system, then we give it to our artificial intelligence model and in models, evolution and biology, so it crunches all these different models. We'Re running at this point, over 30 million models in the cloud a day and each model we have is customized to each individual, cryptic crime scene. So it's, not really a one size fits all. We have customized models for every single cryptocurrency, fine tuned for that, and we go through and try to really find out what what's the best predictor for a cryptocurrency to perform. Well, so then we use that to come up with the rates we have on each cryptocurrency. So, in this case, this has zero X as a good long term hold.
My service is based on the fundamental it was the technology and the TA. Then we also have different grades when, for traders wears those traders, aren't so you're, unconcerned, so much about the fundamentals as much right so kind of going through and having different ways carrying through to each then we also have, as mentioned device predictions so with each cryptic Emergency we go through and we track the price. So, as you see here, this model has been fairly accurate when it comes to tracking 0ex protocol, so the actor price is the red line and our predicted price is the dotted line. So there's pretty much been following. The same trend actually proponent where's, your X, dr. price, was performing better than our predictions, but on all in all this gives you a good idea in terms of whether the trend is going, so our models currently have 0 X, pretty much being stable until maybe towards The end I mean towards the end of the month and beginning of August, so this this is one of the most popular parts of Tokyo, metrics so being able to kind of go through and have an idea of, maybe where's a good time to, but to buy Or accumulate or when's a good time to take profits, for example, imagine being able to go through day by day and see where our models are predicting the price of a particular currency going now. Obviously, this is not perfect alright, but this is merely a tool.
This is this should be used as a tool in somebody's toolbox, so you so factoring in the price predictions the the overall grades. We have right as mentioned earlier here and then also maybe the technical analysis, so just kind of good. So if you factor all this, this gives you a big picture and makes you a smarter investor or trader interesting yeah. So how many? How many years of data does this draw on? Is this from the beginning of recorded data on cryptocurrency, or is this more recent stuff good questions so with each cryptocurrency right now we have data going back to about 2017. Then, when the process of going back and getting data out even further, but for new cryptocurrencies, we have all the pricing data based on one when they launched first. Anything that launched and 2018 is so obviously have the last two years. What the data yeah. So I mean it looks like an awesome system might as well show people the pricing available for it because they're going to be yes, yes, so currently the the kind we have a discount where, if you joined the annual plan, obviously giving away six months three or Bsp half off we're, so pricing begins at the auto plant, which is about twenty bucks. A month investor plan PTP bucks, a month professional plan about two hundred bucks a month, that's. Basically, private group bi weekly cause with our trader Bill myself kind of going through doing deep, dives on different categories, people who want us to research and look and look at then.
If somebody wants something more short term, we have the monthly which should be crispy, has no discount that's 40 bucks a month 90 bucks a month in front of your bucks a month. Now this this discount is limited at the moment, right so probably going to be around for probably a month or so because now that we've launched the portfolio's, which has been the most requested feature honestly. So so there will be some changes to the pricing all right. So I guess last question: we spoke in the beginning about how you turned 20000 into over five million dollars. So if somebody wants to go ahead and well, if somebody wants to do that, if everybody watching this video wants to go ahead and do that you know I, I think that modeling people who have done things before is a great way to achieve those types of Things so you're someone who's done that before and you're someone who would be a reliable person to ask how to do that. So how can somebody who wants to turn twenty thousand dollars into five million dollars go ahead and do that yeah good question? So I have kind of two comments to that. So our first one I would say I mean that's – why we bought the platform because we've done this before we're known for back into the blast, fears having great investment returns now. Yes, I do get some flack on online on Twitter or whatever for for my losses.
Right and I you know, I've definitely learned from those right because but at the end of the day, we all know that investing comes with risks and no investors perfect right. Because if you go back to our track record, we've been early and lots of good great projects right, we were private cell investors and chain link back in 2017 that's, not a top 20 much like a coin. Those see house maduk metric, I mean the list goes on and on right, as so now, we're just really kind of trying to take it to take us to the next level and that's from just having better more in depth research, but also. We know that humans are limited and in terms of being able to crunch data points so that's, why we've had to really kind of go with the wave of the future of AI and bringing bringing AI and kind of see? Okay, how can we really get stronger returns? Because we do think Dockers are still there right because, for example, my biggest holding at the moment and a product I'm really bullish on is helium right. This is the project I met back in 2018 to the offices in San Francisco before anybody even knew about them and I've been basically I mean people will say, I've been at a stage show for them like hey, but this project has now really blown up. I mean the last month, or so I think, it's up for three or four X right recently.
It was on pumps, podcast and show all right so we're we're in probably like a year before, even that right. So this is really our expertise of finding paddocks fairly. Finding products that are undervalued – I mean yes, it's nice to invest into products and in the top 20, but that's, not how you really get those large returns. Those hundred extra turns right. You have to go through put in to work, find us undervalued projects before anybody else finds them and be willing. You have to be willing to swing for the home run, but one of the downsides of trying to swing for the home run is you have to be willing to strike out right, so it's kind of like a go big or go home strategy and back in 2017 we're wearing we're hitting lots and lots of home runs, but after a while again having some, some products strike out right, so they kind of got some with that. But at the end of the day, professional investors. These seas know that 1 out of 10 investments will be an uber right or Facebook, or Amazon and they're willing to kind of take that bet and now with us our success rate. If you go through, it is actually a lot better than that right. At one point over half of our investments, we're getting if 5x return or more right, so I think people she can definitely take it. Data driven approach right as soon as they understand that they're gon na swing for the home runs and try to get to keep those larger returns.
There'S also a chance that they'll beast some losses right. I guess up to only invest what they're willing to lose manage risk and take a data driven approach, so anything else there any other questions. I should have asked that I didn't I mean I think that's pretty much it at a high level. I mean we definitely welcome your your audience to check it out. I mean they can definitely check it out with your link, which will give them 10 off right you're, linking your code mm. Hmm all right, I'll, put a link down the comments. 10 off check it out there's enough life time, just come healing cool nice, 10 off lifetime as awesome so Ian. Thank you. So much for joining us it's been an absolute pleasure awesome platform and I wish you the best of success and then hopefully, we'll have a whole bunch more five millionaires. Thanks to this episode, I thank you.
