OK, you probably think I’m a crypto bear, and that this is the start of a long-winded rant against all-things altcoins…
Far from it.
I’m a big believer in innovation, and cryptocurrencies – blockchain in particular – represent some of the most promising innovations of our times.
Just like the internet before it, the blockchain will fundamentally reshape the world.
This won’t happen overnight, but long-term, I am very, very bullish on cryptocurrencies.
That said, we’re in the midst of an unsubstantiated cryptocurrency bubble.
This bubble likely will persist for another few months. And, to bring the internet comparison to its natural conclusion, it will end the same way the dot-com bubble of 2000 ended… with an enormous cryptocurrency crash.
Here’s the story…
DeFi Is the Future
I love cryptos. More broadly, I love the beneficial disintermediation that is made possible across all industries by blockchain technology.
I won’t bore you with the details in this issue. But, in the big picture, blockchain is arguably the most disruptive technology since the internet, with the core of this disruption being blockchain’s centralized and immutable ledger.
This thoughtfully constructed ledger enables innately untrustworthy individuals and entities to collectively create trustworthy systems, without the need for any central authority – hence the term “disintermediation.”
Blockchain enables humans to remove the middleman from legacy systems and replace them with a collective ledger.
Now… why would we do that?
Because middlemen are often unnecessary profit-takers.
Further, they’re sometimes subject to corruption (see: the financial crisis of ‘08).
By removing and replacing them with an automated and incorruptible technology (which doesn’t need a paycheck), we can make today’s systems and processes more trustworthy, faster, and cheaper.
The applications here are theoretically infinite.
One application of blockchain technology that Wall Street is currently drooling over is the creation of blockchain-enabled currencies – or cryptocurrencies – to create a new era of decentralized finance (DeFi) that doesn’t involve big banks as profit-taking intermediaries.
And DeFi is the future.
The Biggest Opportunity in Cryptocurrencies Right Now
DeFi, however, is not where I see the most upside in the blockchain/cryptocurrency megatrend.
After all, DeFi is intended to disintermediate banks, like Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, and Wells Fargo. Those are multi-hundred-billion-dollar companies. The disruption opportunity is huge.
But there are other cryptos I feel very strongly could deliver massive long-term returns. I’ve shared details on one of my favorites through the Daily 10X Stock Report, where I write about a new megatrend-backed opportunity each and every day. Click here to get all the info on how to join, and start learning about where I see the most opportunity in this rarely talked about crypto opportunity and beyond.
And, right now, there’s a much, much bigger opportunity in disintermediating technology titans, like Alphabet and Amazon, who are trillion-dollar companies.
Which is why I love the idea of “dApps,” or decentralized applications.
DApps are software applications built on the blockchain. This can be any application. A video media application, like YouTube. A driver-rider app, like Uber. A music stream app, like Spotify.
The central link is that these apps are coded on the blockchain – and therefore, there is no central authority that “runs” the app and makes money from the app, either via subscription sales or digital ads. By removing that central authority, dApps create a new generation of truly free software applications.
Often times, these dApps have underlying cryptocurrencies which are used as a form of in-app currency in the dApps, or incentive token for the app developers and blockchain participants.
The appreciating value for these cryptos represents the economic value of the dApp, i.e. instead of the app makers making money from digital ad sales, they make money by owning the dApp’s cryptocurrency, which rises in value as more folks use the dApp.
I firmly believe that dApps will disrupt everything. The future YouTube will be a dApp. The future Uber will be a dApp. The future Spotify will be a dApp.
Most, if not all, apps in the future will be dApps.
Who Survives the Cryptocurrency Bubble
That means it’s time to go out and buy a bunch of dApp-linked cryptocurrencies… right?
Not so fast.
Cryptocurrencies are where internet startups were about 22 years ago: In a big bubble, that will pop, leaving most inflated cryptos today with zero value.
Just consider… back in 2000, the Nasdaq had 5,000 technology companies in the index… by 2003, around 1,000 of them had filed for bankruptcy, while most of the rest had been acquired at a fraction of their peak valuations.
Sure, the internet did end up turning into the future, and out of the dot-com bubble emerged trillion-dollar internet titans like Amazon and Alphabet. But the point here is that all the “rewards” of the internet were hogged by a handful of companies, and that most internet startups in 1999 lost investors their shirts.
You’ll see the same rodeo play out with cryptos.
Cryptos are the future. But all the “rewards” of that future will be hogged by a few strong cryptos. Ninety percent of the coins out there today will be worthless in a few years – and yet all of them are being valued for world domination.
Don’t believe me? Just look at Dogecoin. It was created in 2013 as a joke. Now, it has a market cap of $40 billion. That’s unsustainable.
The crypto market today is filled with reckless speculation. Not once in the history of capitalism has unchecked speculation proven to be sustainable. A crash is coming. Most cryptocurrencies will plunge in value.
And yet… out of the rubble… a few super strong cryptocurrencies will emerge that will fundamentally change the world over the next two decades… and turn early investors into “Crypto Millionaires.”
Bottom Line on Cryptocurrencies to Buy
The key to striking it rich in the crypto market, then, is to buy the right cryptocurrencies – the most technologically-advanced cryptocurrencies with the most value-additive applications.
Which ones make the cut?
Lucky for you, I just started highlighting some of the highest-quality yet still under-the-radar cryptocurrencies in the market in my Daily 10X Stock Report, which gives readers a potential 10X stock pick (or, in this case, “crypto” pick) every single day the market is open.
I believe the cryptos my team and I are highlighting over there represent the best in this industry has to offer… the cryptos that will weather the coming cryptocurrency crash… and emerge from it ready to soar 10X, 100X, or 1,000X over the next two decades.
Those cryptos represent the future.
