Bitcoin isn’t having a great 2021 anymore.
The digital money advanced 40% in just the year’s first week of trading…
And that’s after climbing more than 300% in 2020.
But in May, the red-hot cryptocurrency cooled off after one of the industry’s biggest and most well-known supporters – Tesla CEO Elon Musk – terminated bitcoin as a form of payment for Tesla’s vehicles.
Musk cited bitcoin’s environmental impact as the cause, prompting heavily traded cryptos to plummet.
Then announcements from China widening its crypto crackdown sent the entire crypto market into a tailspin.
Even before this decline, my team and I had anticipated the drop.
I believe bitcoin, cryptos, and the blockchain represent some of the most promising innovations of our times. But just like the internet before it, this shift won’t happen overnight.
Long-term, I am extremely bullish on cryptocurrencies, but this unsubstantiated cryptocurrency bubble must reach its natural conclusion the same way the dot-com bubble of 2000 ended… with an enormous cryptocurrency crash.
While this may be the beginnings of “the big one” for cryptocurrencies, this crash isn’t the end. Far from it.
This is the beginning of the Cryptocurrency Revolution. It’s just the end of bad cryptos built on nothing but hype, and the beginning of the emergence of strong cryptos built on world-changing technologies.
We have strong cause to believe this, including using Gartner’s “Hype Cycle,” which teaches us that new technologies go through five phases:
- Technology Trigger: A new breakthrough technology emerges, new companies are born, early VC investors pour money into those new companies, and a small wave of early adopters use these new technologies.
- Peak of Inflated Expectations: Mass media coverage begins, tons of new companies emerge hoping to capitalize on the trend, everyone starts hyping up the tech as the “next big thing,” and more and more mainstream folks start using the tech.
- Trough of Disillusionment: First-generation products based on the tech disappoint, new companies start to fail, the media talks about those failures, the hype train fades, and new VC money comes into the space as sky high expectations come down.
- Slope of Enlightenment: The mainstream media forgets about the new tech, but the companies that remain work to finetune the technology and develop second- and third-generation products that have much clearer value-props and use-cases.
- Plateau of Productivity: The technology starts to be used the masses, and the companies in the space enter a prolonged period of durable growth.
Graphically, these stages are represented in the following chart:
We believe cryptos are somewhere in the “Peak of Inflated Expectations” phase, as big-name cryptocurrencies begin to fail and the mainstream media begins writing about these failures.
Over the subsequent months to years, we will enter the “Trough of Disillusionment.” This is where thousands of cryptos will fail and several hundred billion dollars of value will be wiped out.
Investors need to be smart here. Those who are smart will make millions.
After the Trough of Disillusionment comes the Slope of Entitlement, followed swiftly by the Plateau of Productivity. The big money is made in these phases.
It is during these phases that the wheat is separated from the chaff, and true visionaries and innovators in a new technology emerge.
During the internet era, this durable growth phase started in 2003, and during this phase, companies like Amazon, Netflix, Facebook, and Alphabet started to use the internet to create second- and third-generation products and services that would go on to change the world.
Cryptos will follow the same path.
You could do a lot worse than buying bitcoin at this price, but there’s a much bigger opportunity at hand…
Because while you could do well in bitcoin, you could do much better in several of its much smaller “cousins” in the cryptocurrency sector.
You see, there are a handful of very small “bitcoin cousins” that could soar more than 31 times the rise of bitcoin.
If you’re poised to make $10,000 in bitcoin, you could make 31 times that – $310,000 – in bitcoin’s tiny cousins.
If you’re poised to make $100,000 in bitcoin, you could make 31 times that – $3.1 million – in bitcoin’s tiny cousins.
But at the risk of sounding repetitive, you must be smart about how you invest in the crypto market.
This is the 1990s all over again. Make sure you don’t buy Pets.com. Instead, buy Amazon.com.
The million-dollar question is: What are the best cryptocurrencies to buy today that have enormous long-term upside potential? These are the cryptos that could help you reach total financial freedom in a very short time.
If you’re at all interested in leveraging the twists and turns of the cryptocurrency hype cycle to make a lot of money, I urge you to learn about this huge story.
In this report, I’m going to teach you about the transformative technology of altcoins… plus how to leverage this undercurrent of cryptocurrency innovation to set yourself up for life-changing returns.
The Fastest Legal Way to Get Rich in America
Right now, there’s a fuse being lit under the altcoin market.
This fuse will set off one of the largest explosions of wealth in modern history. People who invest modest stakes in altcoins will make millions of dollars.
But to truly understand the magnitude of this opportunity, you MUST understand that altcoins aren’t really cryptocurrencies in the way most people think about them.
To know why many altcoins are about to skyrocket thousands of percent in value, you need to know that these assets aren’t “fantasy internet money.”
They are actually investments in one of the most valuable, most revolutionary technologies ever created…
…and they will create a MULTI-TRILLION-dollar tsunami of wealth for their owners.
Remember, the underlying technology behind bitcoin and altcoins is blockchain.
You can think of blockchain and cryptocurrencies like a virtual ledger…
But to truly convey their stunning wealth-creation power, I prefer to say blockchain technologies are just really, really, really valuable software programs.
Now, if you’ve paid attention to what has happened in the world and the stock market over the past 30 years, you should be ready to jump out of your chair and buy altcoins with both hands RIGHT NOW.
That’s because software programs are the oil of the 21st century. They are one of the greatest forces for wealth creation on Earth.
The discovery of oil deposits around the world in the 20th century minted millionaires faster than anyone could count.
It was one of the fastest, biggest accumulations of wealth in human history. People went from being broke to having more money than their grandkids could spend… virtually overnight.
When I say software programs are one of the greatest forces for wealth creation on Earth, I’m not talking about conventional wealth creation… in which it takes you 30 years to save up $1 million.
I’m talking about wealth creation on steroids… in which investors can make $30 million in one year. I know that sounds outlandish, but let’s look at the amazing facts right in front of our eyes…
Bill Gates became one of the world’s richest men because software programs are the oil of the 21st century. Just think about the Microsoft spreadsheet program we call “Excel.”
How much time did Excel save the human race?
A billion years?
Ten billion years?
Excel is now the world’s most popular spreadsheet computer program. It has saved us stupendous amounts of time by allowing us to automate calculations and financial analysis… instead of doing single calculations by hand.
One person running Excel can do the work of a million accountants from days past.
That’s the power of software programs, and it’s occurred across all industries.
Over the past 30 years, software programs have created an explosion of efficiency and human productivity. A great software program can help you make smart business decisions, find travel deals, talk to loved ones, and get a cheap ride home.
Software has massively improved our ability to communicate, share information, transact, gather data, and analyze data.
Health care, education, transportation, manufacturing, energy production, food production, retail, banking, you name it… computer programs have allowed us to do it much more efficiently.
Given all the time, money, and frustration software programs have saved us, it’s no wonder they’ve kicked off one of the largest, fastest accumulations of wealth in human history:
*In 1986, computer program leader Microsoft went public. Shares are up more than 212,000% since then… turning every $10,000 invested into more than $21 million.
*In 1986, shares of computer program leader Oracle went public. Shares are up more than 100,000% since then. Oracle founder Larry Ellison is one of the world’s richest people, worth over $80 billion.
*In 1998, two young computer programmers Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded Google and created the world’s most valuable search engine program. Both men are now worth more than $70 billion each. Their early backers made billions, as well.
Software programs have become the world’s ultimate wealth creators… because we all place enormous value on their ability to save us time and headaches… and because they’ve made us MASSIVELY more productive.
The fastest legal way to get rich in America is to own a piece of a valuable software program or algorithm.
Which brings me to my million-dollar point…
Blockchain technology is about to unleash an epic new wave of computer program wealth.
Real altcoins aren’t anything like “fantasy internet money,” as they are portrayed in the press. Investments in the best altcoins are investments in the next generation of revolutionary software programs.
Forget all the words you hear when people talk about cryptocurrencies and blockchain. They don’t matter much compared to these two KEY facts:
- Valuable software programs are the oil of the 21st century. They’ve become the world’s ultimate wealth creators… because we all place enormous value on their ability to save us time and headaches… and because they’ve made us MASSIVELY more productive. So, owning them is the fastest legal way to get rich in America.
- Blockchains and the altcoins powered by them are just really, really valuable software programs… and they are about to unleash a multitrillion-dollar tsunami of new wealth.
In fact, I love the beneficial disintermediation made possible across all industries by blockchain technology.
To understand just how powerful this transformational technology is, we need to truly understand the ways in which it will change the world…
Blockchain: A Transformational Technology Taking Shape
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, all 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.
That said, DeFi, 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’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.
To illustrate my point, we have to go back to the dot-com boom…
During the internet craze of the late 90s and early aughts, the companies that succeeded did something very, very simple.
They didn’t reinvent the wheel.
They didn’t create brand new industries.
All they did was digitize what was already working in the physical world.
Malls were working in the 1990s. So, Amazon digitized malls, and turned into the “digital mall.”
Movie theaters were working in the 1990s. So, Netflix digitized movie theaters, and turned into the “digital movie theater.”
Newspapers and magazines were working in the 1990s. So, Facebook digitized those industries, and became the “digital publisher.”
The “winning playbook” in the dot-com boom was astoundingly simple. Find something that is working in the physical economy and digitize it.
The “winning playbook” in the Crypto Boom will be equally simple. Find something that is working in the digital economy and decentralize it.
The cryptocurrencies that do this the best will turn into 100X investment opportunities over the next decade.
This information – this way of viewing altcoins – could be the most valuable, most life-changing information you ever hear.
When you change your perspective on altcoins, you realize that they are not fantasy internet money… they are investments in systems that make our lives easier, more productive, and more efficient.
It’s just like backing Microsoft in the early days. It’s just like backing Google or Uber or Oracle in the early days.
When you buy an altcoin, you are essentially acting as a venture capitalist.
You are funding small startup companies that are trying to unseat entrenched, inefficient models and companies that gouge customers.
Investing in the best altcoins (aka “software programs”) right now is like taking an early stake in Adobe Systems (ADBE) in 1998. Adobe created the hugely popular “PDF” program… and the stock has soared 5,800% since then.
3 Altcoins to Buy Now
The good news is that you don’t need to be a tech master to make money investing in cryptocurrencies. You just need to be aware of larger trends and pay attention to the market.
Let me get you started with three cryptos you should look into.
Ethereum (ETH) is one of the older cryptocurrencies on the market, and it’s one you may have heard of. It’s the second-largest coin by market cap, but it’s still just two-fifths the market cap of its larger counterpart, bitcoin.
The crypto was developed by Vitalik Buterin – a developer and the co-founder of Bitcoin Magazine – and launched via an online crowdsale in 2014.
You should be interested in Ethereum for a few reasons…
For starters, it is a different animal than bitcoin. The cryptocurrency claims to “build on bitcoin’s innovation, with some big differences.” You can use Ethereum to send digital money, just like you can bitcoin. But it’s also used for more than just payments.
Ethereum interacts with the Ethereum protocol – a global, open-source platform for decentralized applications. Decentralized applications (or dApps) are an incredible innovation that allow everyday people to participate in the app economy.
Decentralized finance (DeFi) is one of the fastest-growing subsectors in the cryptocurrency industry, and Ethereum accounted for 95% of total dApp transaction volume in 2020. That makes it one of the most widely used protocols in the space.
Ethereum is also a great investment for first-time crypto investors since it is available on a range of exchanges – including Coinbase, which is one of the best known.
Have you ever heard of GitHub? Don’t worry, most folks probably haven’t. For these people, it may be the most important platform you’ve never heard of…
GitHub is an online platform that software developers use to build, ship, store, and edit their code. It’s basically like “Google Docs for Coders,” and it’s the gold standard for how programmers store and share their code.
Not only that, it’s very valuable.
Microsoft acquired GitHub for $7.5 billion in 2018, and it’s performed exceptionally ever since.
Based on the fact software stocks have broadly doubled since Microsoft bought out GitHub, we conservatively estimate GitHub to worth $15 billion today… at least.
And now, this $15 billion giant in the software development world is about to be unseated by a tiny $80 million cryptocurrency called Radicle (RAD) – the blockchain version of GitHub.
It’s a place where programmers can build, ship, store, and edit their code… but, as opposed to being built on a centralized server that is controlled by Microsoft (as is the case with GitHub), Radicle is built on a shared network of mini-servers ruled by the decentralized blockchain hierarchy.
The result is coder freedom.
Whereas GitHub is subject to censorship, hacks, data losses, and fees, Radicle has zero censorship. It’s impossible to hack, code never gets lost, and it’s an always-free platform.
It’s a dream solution for software developers.
That’s why smart money is flowing into this crypto.
Remember when Facebook tried to create its own cryptocurrency with Libra? Well, Libra’s co-creator Morgan Beller has since left Facebook and joined a VC firm by the name of NFX in September 2020. NFX’s first crypto investment since Beller joining the firm was… you guessed it… Radicle.
That’s a huge vote of confidence from someone who knows a lot about this space.
Followers of the cryptocurrency world have likely heard of Cardano (ADA) before. It’s one of the “major coins” – or one of the larger, well-known cryptocurrencies.
That said, it is distinct from other major coins in its underlying technology. And this distinction is what makes it the best big-name cryptocurrency to buy today.
Cardano is the fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, with a $50 billion market cap as of this writing. Yet it is dwarfed in size by the top two tokens: Ethereum ($295 billion market cap) and bitcoin ($750 billion market cap).
Our research suggests there is no reason why Cardano won’t grow to be as big, if not bigger, than both ETH and BTC.
Why? Because Cardano’s underlying technology is best-in-class.
The heart of Cardano’s world-leading technology is the crypto’s proof-of-consensus protocol.
You see… every cryptocurrency has a proof-of-consensus protocol. This is some set of rules and processes by which the blockchain underlying the cryptocurrency validates transactions on the blockchain, without needing any central arbiter – proof-of-consensus protocols are essentially the technological backbone of cryptocurrencies.
They are what make cryptos work. Without them, cryptos don’t work. And the better the proof-of-consensus protocol, the better the crypto.
Cardano has the best proof-of-consensus protocol in the world.
This protocol – dubbed Ouroboros – is the most rigorously tested proof-of-consensus protocol by the academic community. At least 70 academic papers have legitimized and validated this protocol. That’s unheard of and unrivaled in this space.
But what actually makes Ouroboros so special?
It most effectively solves the cryptocurrency optimization problem of maximizing efficiency, reducing environmental impact, and accelerating rewards.
The technicals are quite complex, but at a high-level, these things are achieved through a unique proof-of-stake protocol that rewards participants for their honest participation, disincentivizes dishonest actors, creates a stable system, and results in zero wasted work.
It is technologically one of the most – if not the single-most – superior coins we have analyzed… and we’ve analyzed a bunch.
It’s no wonder the Cardano blockchain is already being used in places like education (for the issuance of academic certifications), retail (for product verification and anti-counterfeiting), agriculture (for supply chain tracking), government (for digitally native identity security), and more.
In the long run, Cardano will one of the most valuable cryptocurrencies in the world.
That’s why – amid this Crypto Crash – contrarian investors may want to think about buying (and holding) Cardano for the long haul…
Creating More Millionaires
As cryptocurrency speculation recedes and valuations are reeled in, partitioning even a small portion of your portfolio within cryptocurrencies could be game-changing. Once the underlying technology is finetuned and these new crypto products are adopted by the mainstream, this small portion could put you ahead of probably 99% of other investors out there.
Cryptocurrencies are taking the world by storm as one of the most promising technologies designed for the digital age. They’ve made savvy investors rich beyond their wildest dreams… and the fun is just getting started.
I see a tsunami of wealth coming with altcoins and the blockchain technology backing them up. They make our time vastly more efficient and productive, and that’s the goal of any great business model.
Early investors in the best altcoins are like venture capitalists backing the next Microsoft, Apple, or Google. It’s OK if most folks simply don’t “get it.” Those in the know understand how valuable software programs that disrupt entrenched, inefficient models and price gouging companies can be.
At the end of the day, altcoins represent a new chance to profit from some of the world’s most valuable software programs ever created – the oil of the 21st century – and they’re about to mint another generation of millionaires.
‘The Awakening’ Is Upon Us
If you think crypto’s already hot, hold on to your seat…
