What do they teach you in school about money?
Mostly, not to steal it from your classmates.
Occasionally a lesson would be learned.
Now and again a young entrepreneur would get caught selling something dodgy in the playground.
In my case, I’d rent computer games that had ‘gone missing’ from the school library, overnight, for £1.
A few years later I tried to sell crushed Rennies as a drug called ‘Daze’.
Like a true snake oil salesman, I had my friend pretend he had just taken it and he’d put on a very convincing display of experiencing a stupefying high.
More chastisement followed.
These were not sound business ventures, I grant you that.
But I was clearly keen to learn about making money.
The closest I got to a financial education was watching a (poorly acted) assembly about The Parable of the Talents.
If you do not know the parable, here’s gist of it:
A master, about to head off on his travels, leaves his three servants with some money.
Two of the servants invest it and double their stake. They get a good pat on the back from the master on his return.
A third was too scared to invest it and instead of trying to grow it, buries it in the ground. He returns to his master his original sum.
He was right to be fearful, the master banished the servant “outside into darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth”.
So, I suppose the message of that parable is to be bold.
Not to play it safe with all your money.
But it leaves you with little understanding of where or how to apply that boldness.
Which is even worse than knowing nothing!
Be bold, take out high interest loans! Be bold, take out a mortgage you can’t afford! Be bold, stick all your money on Tottenham to win the title!
Today, let’s put it right.
I’ll pick up on what Nick was writing to you about last week: the transformative power of investing in exponential growth…
And then share an immediate opportunity for you to put this bold idea to the test.
So let’s kick on…
$10k into $26m
In 1903 you’d have to have been pretty bold to invest in the auto industry.
But that’s what John Gray did.
He had a better understanding than most of what Henry Ford was up to… his nephew was in the process of setting up a car company with the man now credited with popularising auto manufacturing.
But still, there was no way to know that Ford was about to disrupt transportation forever.
Here’s what that exponential growth looks like:
As you can imagine, it paid off.
16 years later, Gray cashed out with a $26m profit. Adjusted for inflation, that’s $1.8bn.
The simple lesson here?
A relatively small amount of money in a corner of the market on the cusp of exponential growth can be life-changing.
I think you understand that.
When technologies like the motor car, the PC, the internet, mobile phones spread like wildfire…
Early investors can do fantastically well.
If you can catch that moment BEFORE global adoption, you can mint a fortune.
OK, you get that. But it’s not especially smart or useful of me just to look back and say ‘what if’ is it?
So let’s look forward…
At the one market in the world today that shows the clearest sign on being on the verge of wildfire adoption:
“$200m to $400m” is flooding in EACH WEEK
No-one can peer into the future.
So the best you can do is look for re-assuring signs of unstoppable momentum.
You want to find an industry that looks like it is on the verge of tipping over into the mainstream.
In my view, only one tech market ticks all the boxes right now – cryptocurrency.
Take all this in:
- Despite the price falls in 2018, the backers of the New York Stock Exchange are launching a platform for institutional capital to buy cryptocurrencies – this month. (That’ the Bakkt project you likely keep hearing about.)
- Crypto “use-cases” continue to rack up: AT&T, and Samsung has recently put bitcoin within reach of 163 million people… and other Fortune 500 companies are integrating cryptocurrency into their payment systems.
- The price of many cryptocurrencies has soared in 2019. Bitcoin has more than doubled. Many smaller cryptos are up as much as 5,000% in a matter of months.
Coinbase is one of the biggest and most user-friendly crypto exchanges in the world…
CEO, Brian Armstrong, says they are seeing an enormous flow of institutional wealth into crypto:
“Whether institutions were going to adopt crypto or not was an open question about 12 months ago. I think it’s safe to say we now know the answer. We’re seeing $200-400M a week in new crypto deposits come in from institutional customers.”
Ask yourself, what does all this look like?
Still a fad not worth your attention yet?
A flash in the pan for kids on the internet?
Or maybe something bigger?
Maybe the next big tech revolution to achieve mass adoption?
We’re backing it’s the latter.
And if you can see the potential, that gives you a great shot at capturing – probably for the first time in your life – dramatic exponential growth.
The question is – how can you take maximum possible advantage?
I will show you
I’ve asked the best crypto investor I know to show you his best strategies for making money from this situation.
So you can see what Sam has come up with, we’ve put together a little event called Beyond Bitcoin – How to make a killing from the crypto boom.
Sam will share with you:
- Why the flood of money we’ve seen so far is likely just the beginning of an historic wealth migration into crypto technology.
- Details of a “gateway” crypto that could facilitate this migration – with potential upside of 15,000%.
- A run through of Sam’s unique cryptocurrency payout strategy – a way to draw a cleaver form of income from your crypto portfolio.
A word of warning: cryptocurrencies are one of the most divisive asset classes in the financial markets. Perhaps that’s because they’re volatile and high risk. Or perhaps it’s because mainstream analysts missed out on the chance to make amazing gains in 2016/17 and they’re bitter.
I don’t know.
But I DO know that you should consider the facts yourself… and make your own mind up.
Don’t let other people do your thinking for you.
If you want to see the bullish case for crypto laid out clearly – including three specific ways you can claim a “seed-stake” in the next phase of the revolution…
