Lark Davis is a crypto content creator with a net worth of $3 million. The New Zealander has been on YouTube since 2009 but only started uploading videos in 2017. From then on, he has developed a large following, attracting over 480,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel (formerly known as “The Crypto Lark”).
Davis is known for depicting himself as a very upbeat character, combining a lighthearted sense of humor with critical thinking. On YouTube, Lark mainly shares his insights on the latest price movements in the top crypto coins, and news impacting the market.
The advice he shares is based on his own experience and he aims to help followers avoid losing money. He also likes sharing his views on passive income strategies such as yield farming and staking.
Lark liked space travel as a kid and dreamt of becoming an astronaut. However, he eventually decided to study Political Science and Government Studies, earning a Master’s degree at the University of Auckland in 2013. He also has a teaching background that enabled him to start his own teaching career by releasing online courses.
Through the Kajabi platform, he offers a ‘Cryptocurrency Explained’ course, targeted towards beginners. Teaching newbies about the core trading concepts and the basics of blockchain technology. The beginner course costs $99, a bit pricey when there’s so much free information online.
Further, Davis delivers a weekly newsletter via Twitter’s Revue platform and through the Wealth Mastery website, accessible by subscribing to a membership program for $39 per month.
Lark is a firm believer in Bitcoin and believes it can reach $500,000 within the next five years. He is a long-term holder and believes that the short-term price action is largely irrelevant when compared to how the asset will be valued in the long term. However, he still discusses the current state of the market and offers commentary on recent events impacting prices.
He has shown a keen interest in Ethereum and layer 2 solutions such as Polygon, the latter designed to address Ethereum’s current gas fee issues.
His Twitter account (@TheCryptoLark) has around one million followers and he is very active online. According to a tweet posted on December 14th, 2021, Bitcoin and Ethereum are half of his portfolio. The remaining half is invested in ecosystem plays that offer a much better ROI opportunity than layer one protocols. Although he likes NFTs, he won’t be investing any serious amounts of money into the space.
In September 2022, ZachXBT on Twitter posted a detailed thread accusing Lark of shilling low-cap projects to his followers. According to ZachXBT, Lark made $1.2 million in profits, selling tokens without properly disclosing he owned them. Since then, his reputation has taken a bit but Davis claims these allegations are false. Sadly, he’s lost followers over the debacle and his YouTube account isn’t as popular as before.
