What is the next tech disruption that's poised to deliver
369.9% annual compounded gains over the next five years?
... that, just like Bitcoin, could potentially
turn $10k into $22.9 million of cash in your bank?
… that, just like Bitcoin, most ordinary folks
won't know about until it's too late to buy in low?
Robert is a 35-year-old coder in Atlanta.
(That’s not his real name – for reasons that will be clear in a moment.)
A while back, he did something that he’d always dreamed of doing. He strolled into a dealership with the biggest grin you’ve ever seen, paid in full, and drove away in a shiny new Lambo.
Care to venture a guess how he paid for it?
Correct! He paid in Bitcoin.
The grand total was 45 bitcoin – which, at the time, were worth around $200k.
Here’s the thing, though:
Robert bought his bitcoin back in 2011, when it was trading at around $3. Effectively, his new Lamborghini cost him only $135 in fiat. Is that crazy – or is CRAZY?
Now, it’s worth mentioning something important here:
Robert wasn’t just some lucky speculator who happened to buy into the right fad at the right time. He’s a professional programmer. When a few of his colleagues started talking about this new digital currency called “Bitcoin”, he dug through some of Satoshi’s papers over a weekend. He liked what he saw, immediately got its potential, and decided he wanted in. So, he took a modest $10k out of his savings, converted it into a small “hodling” of bitcoin… and then he forgot all about it.
He put his head down and got on with his life. He continued working as a coder. He continued dropping his kids off at school every morning. He continued the daily grind.
Until the summer of 2017 came around, and Bitcoin started hitting the news.
When Robert opened his Bitcoin wallet – so to speak – he was shocked to see that his $10k investment had grown into more than $8 million. He was now a “crypto multi-millionaire”.
Peter (again, not his real name) isn’t a coder.
He’s just a regular, average Joe who’d heard about people doubling their money in just a few months by investing in Bitcoin. He mentioned this to his wife – and she laughed at him for being schmuck.
So, between mid-2012 and early-2013, he started socking the odd hundred dollars or so away, behind his wife’s back, and invested it in Bitcoin. He managed to get $6k in before he stopped.
Then, in September 2017, he read about the Bitcoin Cash hard fork in the news.
So, again – just like Robert – he opened his Bitcoin wallet, so to speak, and found that, because of the recent split, his investment was now worth $1.8 million in Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash.
What did Robert do?
He shat his pants.
Because he and his wife, at the time, were living paycheck to paycheck. He now had $1.8 million “hidden” from her – and was terrified about breaking the news to her, lest she divorce him.
The good folks on Reddit told him to split his holdings over two wallets, “declare” one holding to his wife, and keep the other stashed away “just in case the worst happens”.
Now – I don’t know about you – but, if you ask me, this is a good “problem” to have, right?
If you had to “break the news” to your wife that a $6k investment you made four years ago (and forgotten about) had grown into $1.8 million, sure, she might be pissed for a few minutes – but I’m sure she’d quickly forgive you for making such a smart move while you had the chance.
Lots of ordinary folks turned into cryptocurrency experts overnight when Bitcoin exploded towards the end of 2017. But it’s people like Robert and Peter who were the real winners of the crypto boom.
Because they were smart enough to buy into Bitcoin and other blockchain assets several years before it hit the mainstream. They got in when you could still buy hundred-dollar bills for less than a cent.
Let me ask you a pointed question:
When did YOU start taking Bitcoin seriously as an investment?
For most ordinary folks, it was around June 2017 – when Bitcoin was trading at ~$2,500. Assuming you sold out at the peak in December (~$17,500), you would have needed to invest about $143,000 to have become a Bitcoin millionaire. Can you afford to risk that amount of your family’s cash?
Now, consider this:
Back in 2012, long before Bitcoin became sexy, you could buy in at just over $6. If you’d have put down $10k and left it there until the end of 2017 – when Bitcoin had passed its peak and was trading at ~$14k – you’d be sitting on approximately $22.9 million in cold, hard cash.
That’s a HUGE amount of money.
You could go out and buy a Lambo. Heck, you could get one for your wife and kids too.
You could buy your dream home. Heck, go get a summer home too.
And if you invested what’s left in real estate, equities, and other relatively safe investments that provide a modest yield, you’d still have around $500-700k of passive income to live like kings.
Life-changing windfalls like that are only possible when you buy into an opportunity early.
Look – I’m not saying that the Bitcoin boom is over and that there’s no more money to be made. In fact, I’m still investing in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The best days are yet to come.
However, let’s not kid ourselves.
It’s very, very, very, very, very unlikely that investors who buy into Bitcoin now are going to see these sorts of returns – the kind of gains Robert and Peter realized by getting in super early.
We need to find the next Bitcoin.
The next Bitcoin could be another cryptocurrency or blockchain asset.
However, if Bitcoin’s own history is anything to go by, then chances are it’s going to be a different tech altogether – something that’s NOT sexy right now, something that does NOT receive a lot of attention in the media, something that most people do NOT know about.
We’re talking about a “future” technology that’s on the threshold of becoming big – some kind of application that has the potential to take a wrecking ball to the global economy and radically disrupt almost every industry under the sun. Just like blockchain is doing right now.
This “next Bitcoin” could come from blockchain tech again.
But it could also come from artificial intelligence, or 3D printing, or virtual/augmented reality, or drones, or even quantum computing. All these techs are set to become HUGE.
And that brings us to *the* million-dollar question:
Billionaire venture capitalists like Tim Draper, who successfully bet on Skype and first got behind Bitcoin in 2013 – what do they make of artificial intelligence and other “almost-here” future techs?
(Tim Draper is a confirmed speaker at the Bitcoin, Ethereum, & Blockchain Superconference II. Reserve your spot and find out!)
What about respected Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, like Randi Zuckerberg? Now that social media is a mature industry, will it be virtual/augmented reality that creates the next generation of tech unicorns?
(Randi Zuckerberg is also a confirmed speaker. She’s going to reveal how her own firm, Zuckerberg Media, is investing in and getting behind the next generation of tech platforms. Meet her at the Bitcoin, Ethereum, & Blockchain Superconference II.)
What about John McAfee – the guy who famously said, last year, “I’ll eat my d**k on national TV if Bitcoin doesn’t surpass $500k in three years” – what other techs is he also betting on right now?
(We’re in the process of negotiating John McAfee as a speaker. He was a keynote at our previous Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Blockchain Super Conference in February – but is notoriously difficult to pin down, hence why we can’t list him as a confirmed speaker just yet.)
What about Mark Yusko? He’s the Wall Street hedge fund manager who famously offered to bet against Warren Buffett. (Buffett declined.) Here’s what he said about Bitcoin: “We are going to take over money as we know it and replace it. The more governments fight it the stronger it gets it. Don’t listen to the naysayers. There is nothing we can do to stop it because of the network effect.”
Is he betting on other techs as well?
(BTW: Mark Yusko is also a confirmed speaker at the Bitcoin, Ethereum, & Blockchain Superconference II. Another reason to come.)
And what about the dozens of industry insiders and “smart money” investors whose names you’ve never heard of – the developers, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists who live and breathe tech?
How are they betting on the inevitable rise of artificial intelligence?
How are they betting on the blockchain revolution, in light of 2018’s developments?
How are they investing in 3D printing, virtual/augmented reality, and drone technology?
How are they getting behind quantum computing?
THIS is what the Bitcoin, Ethereum & Blockchain Superconference II is about.
In February 2018, we brought together more than a hundred of the most respected developers, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists in the blockchain space – and got them to spill the beans on where the blockchain revolution is headed in 2018, and how the “small guy” investor could buy in low.
Headline speakers included:
Here’s what attendees said about the event:
This time around, at the Bitcoin, Ethereum, & Blockchain Superconference II, we’re doing it all again, only it’s going to be bigger, better, and with more opportunities to discuss.
We’re the ONLY conference in North America that’s bringing all the top players from Bitcoin, Ethereum & Blockchain – so you can get informed, get connected, and get exclusive access.
Here are three reasons why you need to be here:
Here’s what we have lined up:
Richard Jacobs is an entrepreneur, blockchain investor, and publisher of the Crypto News Insider newsletter and the FutureTech Podcast.
In February 2018, Richard brought together more than 80 of the world's most respected blockchain developers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and industry thought leaders, Where they gave 1,500 private investors the inside scoop on where the blockchain revolution is headed.
Now, he's bringing these blockchain thought leaders together again, along with dozens of the developers, entrepreneurs, and money managers from quantum computing, AI, cybersecurity, and other emerging tech fields, so they can show you how these technologies are converging and how, together, they're set to disrupt the economy and reallocate trillions of dollars of private wealth.
