Will Clemente III has 680,200 followers on Twitter thanks to his viral crypto analysis content. He co-founded blockchain research firm Reflexivity Research with Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano while still a teenager.
Who is this guy anyway?
Will Clemente III is still only 21 years old, but his keen insights into the industry mean he’s followed by some of the biggest names in crypto and 680,200 others.
But what’s the “III” thing all about?
“Yes, I am a third,” he laughs about his family name.
He explains that he “dropped out of school in August 2021 while in sophomore year to work in crypto.”
Clemente’s decision has paid off, as the 21-year-old now boasts influential industry figures like MicroStrategy co-founder Michael Saylor, Messari CEO Ryan Selkis and Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal among his large follower count.
A bit like a teenage pop sensation being discovered by Simon Cowell, Clemente was originally discovered by Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano, the venture capitalist and podcaster who proposed they start a blockchain research firm together, before Clemente was even legally allowed to take a sip of beer.
“Pomp said, ‘Why don’t we start a research firm?’ so we launched Reflexivity Research in September 2021,” Clemente explains.
Clemente explains that, as he gained an obsession with crypto, he lost a girlfriend — but not before she bought Bitcoin herself, in the hope Clemente “would pretty much shut up about it.” It didn’t work.
“After learning that Bitcoin is probably the thing you want to own most, I became obsessed, and my girlfriend said you need to find a group of people to ramble on [about it], as she was getting sick of it.”
Even if you thought BTC could go to $10K from current prices, with a 2025 target of $180K you’re looking at a 1:9 risk-reward ratio with 50% potential downside but 900% upside.
Invest 1% of your portfolio, you’re risking 0.5% with 9% upside to your overall holdings. No brainer.
