Collective Shift gives investors and traders access to a suite of tools, expert daily insights, opportunity alerts, and a thriving community.

The metaverse is in its infancy. It is still often messy, volatile, challenging, and untrustworthy. Investors and traders are hungry for opportunities and want to maximise returns during this once-in-a-lifetime exponential wealth transfer.

Determining how to properly position themselves, allocate their portfolios, and identify what to invest in is almost impossible.


Most resort to reactive behaviours and FOMO their way into projects because of hype and promise. Sadly, many people end up making poor investment decisions and are left wondering how they’re losing when seemingly everyone else is winning.

According to research by Cardify, over 1 in 3 buyers admit they “know little to nothing about cryptocurrency as a whole”. And no wonder.

To actually make informed, proactive, educated decisions and have both a macro and micro level awareness of the industry as one individual person is quite challenging.

That’s where Collective Shift comes in…

We know that no one person can do this alone, and we believe in the power of the collective — our experts and community. Together, with our world-class expert investors, research analysts, passionate team, and dedicated members, we can confidently move toward our collective success.

The opportunity here is undeniable. No technology in recorded history has ever been adopted faster than cryptocurrency, including the internet itself. We must come together to give people exactly what they need to succeed as we build a new future.

This changes daily, and that is why our members mean the world to us. We listen, iterate, and evolve at lightning pace to ensure we continuously provide what members need.


“Our vision is simple — to democratise wealth and freedom through crypto by empowering millions. Together, we can create a brighter and more exciting future for all.”

We understand what our members need because we need it ourselves. They need a place where they can get consolidated access to the most important insights and information. That’s why we publish so much free education through our research reports, beginner materials, articles, videos, podcasts, and more.

They want someone they can trust who can help them get it done. And for our most special members, they want to know exactly what we’d do through our opportunity alerts and portfolio strategies.

So that’s exactly what we’ve created at Collective Shift. Our goal is to always deliver 10x the value members expect.

Ahoy, I’m Ben Simpson.
Founder of Collective Shift.

When I was 17 I had an epiphany. And I knew I had a simple choice to make — go all in or go home.

You see, I grew up in a small town in Tasmania, Australia with just a few thousand people. Until I was about 10 years old my parents made minimum wage. Money was scarce. I was empowered to work for it, be creative, and find opportunities.

As a result, I’ve always done whatever it takes to succeed. Whether it was selling finger paintings, refereeing basketball games, building a mobile repair shop out of my bedroom (that I shared with my brother!), or starting my apparel business — I’ve learned through experience and hard work.

Now back to that epiphany. One day, while building my apparel business, I learned about Bitcoin. I immediately saw its power and potential. And beyond the rational benefits of decentralization, its deflationary nature, and permissionless, borderless qualities I intuitively felt something deeper.

So I decided to go all in.

I sold everything I had and put it all into Bitcoin. To top it off, I even put 90% of my company’s balance sheet into Bitcoin. Like I said, all in.

As I went further down the rabbit hole, I quickly realised that I couldn’t do this alone. I needed to guarantee success and was overwhelmed by the pace and volatility of the industry. So I created a group of crypto experts to surround myself with and together we collectively began sharing our research to spot the next trends and opportunities.

This was where Collective Shift was born. The idea that no one person could do this alone. That the collective makes the individual stronger — and that with the right tools, resources, and people — we could democratise wealth through crypto for all.
