I regularly discuss different hypergrowth investing themes, and for good reason.
My goal is to offer recommendations to my subscribers that have the chance to grow as much as 100-fold because of the massive, wealth-generating power of newfound industries or technologies that go on to change the world.
Cryptocurrencies are in this category.
If you’ve been tuning out this new asset class worth over $190 billion as of this writing, please don’t continue to do it this year. Not when so many catalysts are setting up behind bitcoin (BTC) and its altcoin cousins.
It could leave you wondering what life-altering gains actually look like.
To give you a sense of what I’m talking about, let’s step in the MoneyWire time machine and go back a few years…
I first discussed bitcoin’s explosive potential on Fox News on July 1, 2014.
At the time, I noted that “Bitcoin is there for the taking… I’ve become a believer.” The fact that it could become a viable global currency and act as a store of value like digital gold were the main reasons driving my bullish view.
Even though the technology backing it is complicated, bitcoin’s ongoing allure and massive potential are really quite simple.
It’s a digital form of money that governments cannot control or debase… one we can transfer without the involvement of big, sometimes corrupt banks.
For those who don’t place much trust in government or big banks, bitcoin is a great idea.
If you’d listened to me back in 2014, when the price was still a mere $640.81 per bitcoin, you’d have seen the value of your investment soar more than 1,000% to unthinkable highs. (Coinmarketcap.com is a good place to check for crypto quotes.)
Of course, back then there were sceptics trying to shoot down bitcoin’s massive potential. There still are today.
Back in late 2014, after I made my prediction on Fox, Niall Ferguson, author of a book about the history of currency called “The Ascent of Money,” ignored his teenage son’s advice to buy bitcoin.
At the time, he later said, he believed there was no “…use for a form of currency based on blockchain technology.” Ferguson now considers that move the worst investment decision he’s ever made.
The same year I made my prediction, American economist Nouriel Roubini called bitcoin a “Ponzi scheme” and a “conduit for criminal/illegal activities.”
In 2017, Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, famously called bitcoin a “fraud.” Until he reversed course. Now JPMorgan has developed its own cryptocurrency called JPM Coin to be used in its international wholesale payments business, worth some $6 trillion each day.
Here’s how things played out…
On December 17, 2017, bitcoin reached its all-time peak – to date – of $20,089. That’s a run of 3,035% over 41 months!
The price has been on a roller coaster since, falling through much of 2018, only to return strong in 2019.
Last year, the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap – including bitcoin, ethereum (ETH), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) – outperformed the S&P 500, gold, and oil, according to CoinDesk.
Bitcoin climbed 92% in 2019, compared to the S&P 500’s 29% increase.
In other words, it was a good year for cryptocurrencies. But things are about to change, in a big way.
We’ve spent the last few days talking about the upcoming event called the “halvening” and how bitcoin surged the last two times it happened. We’ve talked about how altcoins rocketed even higher.
I’m about to make another major call on cryptocurrencies, and I urge you to listen in.
A specific set of catalysts is lining up in the space, and we don’t have much time to spare if we want to get in at the right time.
We are heading rapidly toward the first major investing event of the decade, and the profit potential for smart investors who get in early is massive. We’ve seen it before, and all indications say we’re about to see it again.

This week, Matt discusses Thursday’s drone strike that killed a top general in the Iranian military, which sent stocks lower as safe haven investments rallied. Then, he looks ahead to the next 10 years – what he is calling the Roaring 2020s. One sector poised for a big transformation is transportation. Finally, learn about investing in electric vehicles and self-driving cars.

The car as we know it is on the verge of a transformative change not seen since Karl Benz invented it nearly 135 years ago. In fact, the whole transportation sector is now poised for its version of 2.0.
I’m not exaggerating when I say this will lead to trillions of dollars in money sloshing around in the coming decades. What is coming will create one of the five biggest investment opportunities you’ll ever see in your life, no matter when you were born. Learn more here.
Marijuana has been outlawed most everywhere for decades… but now a wave of legalization is starting to sweep the world. This will create massive new markets and massive stock market winners. Learn more here.
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.
