Clients can get a $50 membership credit by using the Collective Shift membership link. Ben enjoys being in the crypto space and is passionate about helping people and startups solve their problems and make success.

In 2020, during the pandemic, Ben had an opportunity to develop a platform to help crypto investors have access to data, analytics, and research to support and help them make decisions easier. In just a year, Ben has doubled the revenue of the company and expanded its service for over 40 countries with members all around the world. From 5 employees to the current 18.
