How long have they been in the field? What kind of education do they have? Work experience? Have they run any successful ICOs? Do they advise on any ICOs?
How many followers do they have? Where else do they write/speak? How does what they say influence the market at large?
How active are they on social? Are they one of the first to comment on breaking events? Do they respond to followers?
Do they only cover one topic/aspect or do they cover cryptocurrency and the blockchain as a whole? Are they focused on the crypto market or do they discuss finances at large?
Clif High, along with his associate George Ure, created the Web Bot Project. The Web Bot is an internet bot computer program that they claim is able to predict future events by tracking keywords entered on the Internet. However, the two keep the technology and algorithms largely secret and sell the predictions via a website. Cliff has developed a large following, and has almost a prophetic presence to his believers.
Love him or hate him, High is somebody that you at least want to keep on your radar. His is a radical character that has stirred the pot a few times. Even so, he is a person that many people listen to, and you should too if you’re serious about cryptocurrency. However, as with any influencer, you should do your own research and form your own opinions before you act.
High is a huge proponent of cryptocurrency and has made many predictions of it’s future. He is also a huge proponent of silver and gold investing. He tends to have very positive prediction when it comes to cryptocurrency. Notably, his prediction that by August of 2018, Bitcoin will hit $40,000.
High has both an active Twitter presence, and an active YouTube channel. High’s YouTube channel hosts a hand full of interviews conducted by High, but mostly contains several videos where High himself shares his thoughts and insights into various subject. However, he seems to be taking a break from his own channel and instead interviewing on other channels in an attempt to keep people from misquoting him or taking his videos out of context. His Twitter presence is quite active and he tweets daily on a variety of topics.
Clif High is someone who makes many predictions. And while he may have had a couple correct predictions in the past, I get the feeling that success was more so due to the sheer volume of predictions he makes and less due to his abilities. His predictions more often than not seem to be based more on his gut feeling than facts. However, he is still a good person to keep an eye on as he does have a wealth of information on the industry.
