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. He started at the perfect time as the crypto boom helped him attract over 495,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel (formerly known as “The Crypto Lark”).
Early on, people liked Davis’ upbeat energy, combining a lighthearted sense of humor with critical thinking. On YouTube, Lark mainly covers the latest crypto news, analysis and crypto picks.
The advice he shares is based on his own experience and he aims to help followers avoid losing money. Lark also likes sharing opinions on passive income strategies such as yield farming and staking.
As a kid, Lark was obsessed with space travel and wanted to become an astronaut. However, he later studied Political Science and Government Studies, earning a Master’s degree at the University of Auckland in 2013. Davis’ teaching background made it easier for him to release online courses.
Business Ventures and Revenue Streams
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. In addition, the entrepreneur makes an estimated $5,000 per month in ad revenue from YouTube.
Lark is a firm believer in Bitcoin and believes it can reach $500,000 within the next five years. He’s a long-term holder and believes that the short-term price action is irrelevant when compared to how the asset will perform 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 gas fee issues.
His Twitter account (@TheCryptoLark) has over a million followers and he’s 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.
Cryptocurrencies he’s buying in 2024:
In September 2022, ZachXBT on Twitter posted a detailed thread accusing Lark of shilling low-cap projects to 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.
