Here’s a riddle for you…
Take a look at the two lists below and tell me what they have in common.
Stocks, bonds, derivatives
Avocados, flowers, machine parts
If you’ve been following me for the past year, you may know the answer: the blockchain.
When I first started telling my subscribers about the blockchain, it was nothing more than the digital ledger for bitcoin. Its main purpose was to track cryptocurrency transactions.
But the technology has grown exponentially since then.
First, it was the finance industry that took interest in the blockchain because it’s much faster and more efficient than conducting transactions on traditional networks.
Recently, we’ve seen the retail (Walmart) and entertainment (Disney) industries get in on the act. And now the shipping industry is joining the blockchain bandwagon.
Next week, shipping giant Maersk is expected to announce it will start using IBM’s blockchain (the same one Walmart is adopting).
The ledger will track the avocados, flowers, and machine parts the company carries on its enormous cargo ships.
My friends, we’re witnessing firsthand a technology hitting its mass adoption point (MAP) in overdrive. (You can read more about the MAP cycle here.)
And as I’ve told you before, when a technology reaches its MAP, early investors make out like bandits.
We’re still early in the blockchain game. But time is running out…
More Disruptive Than Email
If you’re still not convinced about the power of the MAP cycle or even the blockchain, consider this…
The first email was sent in October 1971 on a secret government project called ARPANET.
It took two years before people realized just how powerful the invention was. By then, email had gone from virtually none to 75% of all ARPANET traffic.
Today, 2.5 billion people send 2.5 million emails per second on ARPANET’s successor—the internet.
Email birthed some of the earliest internet success stories… pioneering online service providers like Prodigy, CompuServe, and America Online (AOL) that were all built on providing convenient email access.
The blockchain has the potential to be even bigger than email because it transmits not only communication, but also value.
Instead of simply sending messages, you can build smart contracts on the blockchain… and use the underlying cryptocurrency to trade for stocks, bonds, and even avocados…
Or you can hold the cryptocurrency as an investment…
Use “Digital Shares” to Profit From the Blockchain MAP
Each blockchain has its own cryptocurrency. The currencies are “money” that can be spent or saved… but they also act as “shares” for blockchain startups.
As more people use a particular blockchain, its “shares” increase in price.
Unlike most startups that require you to be an accredited investor, anyone can buy “shares” in a blockchain startup. All you have to do is buy its cryptocurrency.
The easiest way to participate in the corporate move to the blockchain is to own a piece of the oldest and most secure blockchain in the world: Bitcoin.
Many developers are starting to build applications for the Bitcoin blockchain.
So owning a little bitcoin gives you a stake in the growth of this transformative technology.
P.S. If you’re still unsure about buying bitcoin, don’t worry. Most of my readers still can’t tell bitcoin from a gigabyte. But that didn’t stop them from making 22.9%, 195.7%, and 230.8% profits in 90 days from the fastest-growing cryptocurrency plays in America. And over the next 60 days, I think your profits could be even bigger. Click here to learn more.
