Scott Melker is the host of The Wolf Of All Streets Podcast and author of The Wolf Den newsletter.

“If I tweeted about a small cap [crypto] of some sort right now, the price would probably change by like 50%,” says Scott Melker, better known to his 904,800 Twitter followers as The Wolf Of All Streets.
