Margarine, moonshine and money

There’s one thing authorities hate more than anything else – disruption.

It is their enemy.

If things stay the same, it’s all hunky dory – their power and influence remains unchallenged.

Any change to the norm is perceived as a threat – and the customary reaction to such threats is aggression.

Whether the disruption is political, commercial or ideological – the powers that be do not like change.

Out on a run recently, I was listening to a podcast that hammered this point home to me. It was about, of all things, margarine (!).

Believe it or not, back in 1925 margarine was so controversial it was banned in some US states. Companies were forced to produce “moonshine margarine” on the sly.


Because “big dairy” was scared of the impact that this cheaper, longer lasting new foodstuff would have on its revenue.

Lobbyists waged a war of propaganda against margarine, even producing posters that suggested it was made out of cats and sawdust!

Margarine was disruptive. And its arrival was met with aggression.

The dairy barons even managed to push through a law that required all margarine to be dyed pink.

This may be an obscure example but I think the point is clear and one that we all understand… the powers that be fear any disruption to the status quo.

What has all this got to do with you?

Well, we are witnessing a new, grand disruption in the world today and the authorities are railing against it.

The rise of “bootleg money”

The financial authorities are worried.

They are watching the rise of cryptocurrencies in sheer dread.

Cryptos threaten to destroy the centralised monetary and banking system we’ve endured for the last 700 years.

Traditional banking services cherish the control that they have over the people and their money and will do everything within their powers not to let go.”

– Cointelegraph

As the crypto market has flourished, “old finance” has had its knives out. JP Morgan chief Jamie Dimon referred to bitcoin as “a fraud” and Warren Buffett’s right-hand man Charles Munger called it “noxious poison”. And banks all over the world are making it problematic for crypto investors.

For the last six months a war on the legitimacy and credibility of the crypto revolution has been waged.

But things are starting to change.

In January Japan’s largest bank announced plans to launch a cryptocurrency exchange.

Just last week Barclays bank partnered with one of the world’s biggest crypto exchanges, Coinbase.

And we’ve also recently seen powerful entities… from IBM to Microsoft to BMW… sign lucrative alliances with rising crypto stars.

Central banks are also starting to fall in line… with the Bank of England openly considering the use of blockchain technology.

What does this tell us?

The traditional authorities are beginning to realise they are fighting the rising tide. They cannot hold back the disruption. Many will continue to try. They will wage a war of spin and propaganda. But it will only delay the inevitable.

Five years ago less than one million people held a bitcoin wallet. Today that number is around 14 million – and rising. Every HOUR hundreds of millions are being transferred from old money to new.

This is a disruption to money itself.

Back in 1925 the authorities couldn’t even stop the “margarine revolution” – what chance do they have against cryptocurrencies?

This is a phenomenon still in its earliest growth phase. And despite the fluctuating market (and the big dip we’ve witnessed recently), the gains investors have seen over the last 12 months have been eye-watering. Take a look at some of the best performing coins:

Stellar is up over 11,000%.

VeChain is up over 1,700% since it launched on to the market in September 2017.

For speculators happy to stake a small sum they won’t lose any sleep over… what an opportunity! One that I am determined to do as much as I can to help you talk advantage of.
