They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
So if I show you three charts, are they worth 3,000 words?
I don’t know about that part, but I definitely believe they can be worth a lot of money.
These charts are part of the case I’ll make tomorrow in my debate with my InvestorPlace colleague and friend, Louis Navellier.
As you may know, I have a friendly bet with Louis we’re calling The Race to 40K. Specifically, it’s whether the Dow will gain 50% to hit 40,000 before bitcoin gains more than 250% to get to $40K.
We’re going to hash it out tomorrow at 4 p.m. ET with lots of folks watching, and you’re invited to join us.
Today in MoneyWire, I want to give you a sneak preview as to why I’m confident I’ll win the bet… and how you as an investor could make a lot of money.
I own bitcoin, and have for a long time. It’s never been a trade for me. It’s about the transformative potential of bitcoin… and all cryptocurrencies.
I think we are now in the early stages of what could be a huge run driven by multiple catalysts.
Bitcoin’s recent halvening reduced the new supply of coins coming on to the market at a time when demand is rising.
Bitcoin use is becoming much more widespread and mainstream. Just recently, banks were given the go-ahead to store cryptocurrencies for their customers.
PayPal (PYPL) and Venmo plan to offer the buying and selling of cryptos.
The biggest and best-known crypto exchange, Coinbase, is reportedly looking at going public. Coinbase has been approved by Visa (V) as a principal member, so it will be easier for users to spend their cryptocurrency like they would cash in a regular old bank account.
So the real question is… Can bitcoin gain 250% faster than the Dow gains 50% to get to 40K first?
I say yes, and that’s the basis for our Race to 40K bet.
Bitcoin is already breaking out, which brings me to the three charts I want to show you. Let’s start with bitcoin. It has gained more than 50% so far in 2020 and blown away the Dow’s 6% loss.
Now I want to show you the second chart, which is another cryptocurrency called Ethereum. It has the second largest market cap behind bitcoin. It is only about one-fifth the size of bitcoin, but it’s still more than three times bigger than the third-largest coin, XRP.
Ethereum has broken out even more than bitcoin.
Looks like a carbon copy of bitcoin’s chart, doesn’t it?
But when you look at the percentage move, Ethereum’s is more impressive.
A nearly 60% surge in a little over two weeks has sent Ethereum to its best level in a year. It is by far the best performer of the big cryptos, and its recent breakout is a great sign for bitcoin as well as the smaller altcoins.
You can see that big moves in cryptocurrencies aren’t just possible. They happen.
Bitcoin is the bellwether, and its success will attract more money into the cryptocurrency market.
Bitcoin’s success and its surge in price after previous halvenings give us even more confidence in the future and my bet that it gets to 40K before the Dow.
I can’t wait to talk more about it tomorrow. I hope you’ll be able to join us for a fun discussion of multiple ways to grow your wealth.

The next big breakthrough in battery technology is an innovation that will have multi-trillion-dollar economic implications. I can tell you this mega innovation isn’t a matter of “if,” it’s a matter of “when,” and I believe it will go down as one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century.
Those on the right side of this innovation stand to build incredible wealth… just like people did from the creation of the internet and the smartphone. Think of this as your “field guide” for profiting from the next big battery breakthrough. Learn more here.
