Why this 24-year Wall Street veteran, known for his conservative investment strategies, has finally turned BULLISH on a handful of cryptocurrencies …
GET IN BEFORE THE NEXT BULL MARKET!
Hi. My name is Nilus Mattive.
Back in March 2001, I was a very young Wall Street analyst starting a new job with Standard & Poor’s.
Ironically, that very same month, the raging bubble in technology stocks was finally topping out.
Within a year, hundreds of those same Nasdaq companies had lost 80% or more of their value …
Thousands of additional internet businesses were going belly-up or getting bought out for pennies on the dollar … The same opportunity exist today in the crypto market the start of 2023.
And investors — including millions of regular Americans — had lost more than $5 trillion in total wealth.
It’s hard to believe that was more than 20 years ago already.
Yet now I see history repeating itself in an entirely new financial market — one that didn’t even exist back when I first started my career on Wall Street.
I’m talking about the world of cryptocurrencies.
See, I believe the parallels will continue.
Yes, just like we saw with crappy tech stocks 20 years ago, thousands of cryptocurrencies could keep crashing until they’re completely worthless — I’ll even name seven of the biggest, most dangerous ones in a little while.
However, there may also be a handful of cryptos that soar thousands and thousands of percentage points from their prices today … which is exactly what happened to a handful of tech stocks after the Nasdaq implosion.
So, this might be a rare opportunity for investors who get in before the crypto market soars again.
That’s why I put this video together — to show investors why now, at the height of all the crypto negativity, is actually the very best time to invest some money into the space.
Plus, I’ll even talk about ways to earn Bitcoin without even risking any investment money at all.…
All I ask is that you stick with me for a few minutes so I can show you why I’m so confident in my forecast.
As you’ll see, more than 120 years of history — going back to the very beginning of the Industrial Revolution – demonstrates that certain cryptos could deliver bigger profits than even some crypto enthusiasts believe possible.
And that prediction is also backed up by a scientific ratings model that accurately called the last crypto market bottom back in 2018.
That’s why I say NOW is the time to take action.
Of course, I know this might be hard to believe … even if you’ve already been investing in the crypto space.
After all, we’ve seen some colossal failures over the last year — from the Luna collapse all the way up to the implosion of the FTX exchange.
Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Jaime Dimon, Peter Schiff, Nouriel Roubini and many other long-time crypto naysayers are celebrating these events …
And mainstream headlines have declared the death of crypto everywhere you look.
Some of your own friends and family members are probably even enjoying “I told you so” moments …
Whether you actually invested in cryptos or simply brought up the subject at some point in time.
Well, here’s the thing …
I was one of these people in the wake of the Dot-Com Collapse …
I felt really smart for having avoided most of the carnage in my own portfolio and in the guidance I was giving other people …
And I continued to avoid the technology sector in the wake of the collapse, too.
That proved to be a huge mistake.
In fact, as I’ll show you — even someone who bought the right technology stocks at the very top of the Nasdaq Bubble and simply continued holding on through the bitter collapse — would have ended up far richer than all the people who stayed on the sidelines.
And obviously, anyone who bought them after the crash did far better still.
In one particular case, Warren Buffett himself missed out on making $765 billion in extra profits by waiting way too long to act!
Instead of watching his returns soar as high as 76,601% … he had to settle for a maximum return of just 730%!
So yes, cryptos are extremely risky. That means people can lose money and should always understand what they’re doing before they invest.
Anyone who claims otherwise isn’t being honest.
However, all of my research says we could see at least a handful of cryptos go on to future prices that seem almost unimaginable right now — and these are the rare type of investments that can give savvy investors incredible gains like we saw from some of the most exceptional tech stocks after the original Nasdaq collapse.
So, I’ve already invested my own money in a couple of beaten-down crypto investments, and I want to talk about why I did it.
I also want to introduce you to some of my new favorites, including one that is trading around $1 right now.
Which brings up the biggest paradox I’ve learned after more than two decades as a professional investor …
It is precisely at moments like this …
When it feels completely wrong and dangerous to buy …
When every mainstream news outlet is shouting warnings …
And prices are still way down …
That the risk vs. reward equation is probably most tipped in an investor’s favor.
After all, a single 76,000% gain is enough to turn a modest $1,500 investment into more than a million dollars.
Or to put it another way: One good crypto investment right now could be worth keeping your money in the broad stock market for the next 7,600 years!
Yes, now, that’s an exceptional return … the kind of outlier that the average investor shouldn’t expect to achieve.
But it happened!
Still, maybe you think cryptos are nothing like what we saw with the Tech Bubble …
Or that this is just a modern-day tulip mania.
Well, I get it.
After all, I’ve built my entire 20+-year reputation recommending dividend stocks and other boring income-producing investments …
In fact, pretty much every time I’ve been featured on a major media outlet like Bloomberg Businessweek, MarketWatch or Fox News, it was to help regular Americans build better retirements through very conservative investment strategies.
Growing up as a middle-class kid in a Pennsylvania coal mining town, I learned to value safety over hype from a very young age.
So, I was a crypto skeptic for a long time, too.
But after finally digging into the crypto world over the last couple of years …
And comparing what I learned to what I saw in my early days on Wall Street …
I have a different outlook now.
I’ve even flown from my home in Santa Barbara, California, all the way down to a place they call Bitcoin Beach in El Salvador …
Just to get a better handle on what’s really happening in the crypto space.
I now think certain crypto investments have major upside ahead.
Which is why I’m not ignoring them like I ignored tech stocks in the wake of the Nasdaq Collapse.
Because I believe what’s happening in the world of cryptos right now IS almost a perfect parallel to what happened with the Internet Bubble 20 years ago.
Most people are completely focusing on all the losses and failures taking place …
They’re using those losses to dismiss the entire crypto space …
And in the process, they’re completely ignoring a handful of giant opportunities right in front of their faces.
Investments that could result in major gains.
Just consider a simple example from the Dot-Com Collapse … Amazon.
Here’s a chart of Amazon from the day it went public back in 1997 through June 2001, after the Big Tech
collapse really got rolling …
Notice that Amazon’s stock went from single digits all the way above $100 in a matter of a few years …
Then it fell all the way back down to $10 by 2001.
So, if an investor bought the stock at the top, they lost as much as 90% of their investment.
And a lot of people locked in those losses for good and never returned.
Most others decided not to buy Amazon after it collapsed.
This is exactly how it is for anyone who bought cryptos at their most recent highs, too!
But here’s what happened to Amazon through June 2012 …
It went on to hit $200 a share.
That’s twice the level it hit during the top of the Dot-Com Bubble.
So even if someone bought at the top of the prior bubble, they doubled their money.
And if they bought after the collapse, they made as much as 20 times their money.
Every $1,000 became $20,000. That’s a huge, 20x gain!
Yet it’s still just the beginning of this story.
Because here’s Amazon through the middle of May 2022 …
At the top of its most recent bullish cycle, Amazon was above $3,500 a share.
So simply buying after its Dot-Com Collapse and holding it would have resulted in a 350x gain.
That means $1,000 invested into Amazon at that time would have been worth $350,000 two decades later.
Now look, this is just to illustrate a point. As we always hear, past success does not guarantee future results. That’s one of the most basic rules anyone needs to understand before they risk anything in the markets.
However, we can definitely study past trends and apply what we’ve learned to the present time.
Which is why I also want to remind you that Amazon was not some secret, unknown company.
Its IPO in 1997 was a huge event.
Everyone had heard of it by the time the Nasdaq collapsed.
Many people were already buying books from the company.
It’s the same exact thing with Bitcoin right now.
Every single American has certainly heard of it. But most just aren’t taking the time to consider investing in it yet.
Even some of the of the smartest, most famous investors on the planet — including Warren Buffett.
Which is funny.
Because looking at my chart of Amazon again, there’s this area that I circled …
Well, that’s where Warren Buffett started investing in Amazon, right around $2,000 a share in May 2019.
Up until that point, and especially around the early 2000s, Buffett was an outspoken critic of internet companies.
Which is why he watched Amazon go up 20,000% before he finally bought in.
And it’s no secret that Buffett is also an outspoken critic of cryptos right now, including Bitcoin.
You can pretty much substitute the word “crypto” for “internet companies” in the comments he makes.
He says he doesn’t understand cryptos, they’re all based on magical thinking and so on and so forth … just like he said about internet companies 20 years ago.
Well, I have to laugh when I hear all the haters saying Bitcoin is just computer code.
Guess what … so is Amazon’s website!
That didn’t prevent it from completely changing the way our entire country shops!
This is yet another reason I believe history may be repeating itself.
A lot of people completely misunderstand what some cryptos even are …
They don’t know that they’re technology projects with real-world utility, just like some of the websites we all know and love.
This is why Bitcoin reminds me of Amazon after the Tech Wreck.
So, let me pose a hypothetical question …
If someone could go back in time to 2001 and put $1,000 into Amazon, would they do it?
I certainly would — which is why I’ve already put far more than $1,000 into Bitcoin.
Because even if my bet doesn’t work out, the loss won’t ruin my life.
Meanwhile, if I’m right and Bitcoin ends up being similar to Amazon … every $1,000 investment right now could be worth a lot more down the road.
But let me be clear … Bitcoin is NOT the biggest crypto opportunity right now.
Not by a long shot.
There are far better cryptos to buy right now, just as there were far better technology stocks than Amazon in the wake of the Tech Wreck.
Sure, you know the company and all its products now.
But after the Dot-Com Bubble, Apple had been left for dead.
People thought it was a doomed company, long past its glory days of selling Macintosh computers.
This is why Apple’s stock was trading for as little as 20 cents a share in April 2003.
That gave Apple a total market capitalization of just $5 billion.
To put it in context, Bitcoin would have to fall all the way down to $250 to be worth as little as Apple was in the wake of the Dot-Com collapse!
Can you imagine how many people would say it was completely done at that point?
Yet as you know, Apple didn’t die.
It ended up inventing entirely new categories of consumer devices like the iPhone, the iPad, the Powerbook and the Apple Watch.
Today, Apple is one of the most valuable companies in the world.
And do you know what’s really interesting about Apple?
Warren Buffett ignored its stock all the way up until 2016, too.
Today, it’s his biggest stock position!
Meanwhile, a little-known, scientifically based rating system said Apple was a “Buy” all the way back on Sept. 27, 2004 … not long after it had completely bottomed out.
To put this into perspective:
Someone who waited for Warren Buffett to buy Apple could have made as much as 730% through the stock’s all-time high on Jan. 4, 2022.
That’s really good, right?
Well, someone who bought Apple right after it bottomed could have made as much as 76,601%.
That’s 104x better!
To put it into dollar terms …
Buffett initially invested about $1 billion into Apple back in 2016.
Which could have grown to as much as $7.3 billion at the stock’s most recent high point.
But if Buffett had invested in Apple back in April 2003, he could have made more than $765 billion in profits instead!
So, Buffett not only missed out on a 20,000% return before he bought Amazon … he made a much bigger mistake by not buying Apple sooner!
My point here is simple:
Warren Buffett is one of the most successful investors in history.
Yet even he missed most of the gains made by tech stocks like Amazon and Apple after the Nasdaq collapse …
All because he didn’t have the guts to buy when prices were low and skepticism was still high.
Now, like my old compliance officers on Wall Street used to say, what happened in the past is no guarantee of what happens in the future.
But what are the odds that Buffett is making the same mistake right now in the crypto market?
Obviously, I’d say they’re quite high.
Especially because the very same ratings system that identified Apple as a “Buy” more than a decade before Buffett is now telling us that the crypto markets have bottomed out as well!
More than that, now is THE TIME to identified several small cryptos that could be the biggest winners going forward.
It’s called the Weiss ratings system and it accurately called the last major bottom in the cryptocurrency markets, too.
That was in late 2018.
Coin Intel News broadcast it all over the internet, saying, “Weiss Ratings Calls the Bottom.”
Bitcoin News wrote, “Weiss Ratings declares now best time to buy Bitcoin.”
Countless blogs and websites also picked it up and spread the news.
Sure enough, just three days later, Bitcoin hit rock bottom. And that marked the beginning of the largest crypto bull market of all time.
How much could investors have made if they bought Bitcoin at that point?
The numbers are shocking.
- Bitcoin surged 20.1 over, enough to turn a $10,000 investment into $200,832.
- Ethereum, the system’s highest-rated crypto, surged 54-fold, enough to turn a $10,000 investment to $545,760.
- Cardano, also among its top-rated coins, surged 102 times, enough to transform $10,000 in starter capital into $1,020,648.
- And Chainlink topped them all. It exploded 234x higher, a phenomenon that could have grown a $10,000 initial investment into an asset worth $2,338,746.
And as I said a moment ago: those who follow the market let everyone that the last great crypto bottom is here! Today is February 1st 2023 and I am trying to tell you THE CYPTO BOTTOM IS HERE.
Obviously, this is extremely time-sensitive news.
Because the crypto markets have traditionally bottomed just once every four years.
What’s more, I have every reason to believe that this could actually be the biggest bottom the crypto markets will ever see.
Which means right now could be the absolute best time to get into a handful of cryptos.
The reason why is simple …
Crypto Is Following the Same Pattern as Every Other Major Technological Innovation
Take a look at this chart:
This curve goes by several different names.
But it shows how a major innovation is adopted by a large population of people.
Notice there are very early adopters — industry insiders, tech nerds, dreamers, whomever.
These are the people who were talking to each other on the internet back in 1993 or buying Bitcoin in 2010.
Then there are people like me, who were already buying and selling on eBay back in 1999. Or getting into cryptos during the last bull market.
When we add them to the very early adopters, it’s about 15% of the total population.
And what’s important is that shortly after this point, the curve really starts to steepen.
It goes from 10% or 20% adoption to 50% adoption and then 75% adoption in very short order.
Finally, you have the laggards. The last 15% or 16%.
Maybe that aunt or uncle who just refuses to get a smartphone.
Or, in the professional investment world, the Warren Buffetts who don’t get involved until everything is completely proven and modeled out.
AFTER most of the gains have already been made.
This basic adoption curve has now been backed up by more than a century of innovations.
In fact, here are the adoption curves on many different inventions and technologies …
For example, electricity adoption was about 10% back in 1908. Within 30 years it was at 75%.
Or how about refrigerators?
In 1930, only 12.8% of the population had one. Twenty years later, 86.4% of the population had one.
And then there’s color TV …
In 1966, adoption was at 10%.
By 1978, it was 75%.
The basic pattern is the same each time.
And overall, especially in more recent examples, adoption actually happens faster.
So, where are we with crypto adoption right now?
And how does it stack up to internet adoption 20 years ago?
Take a look …
The two are trending in almost perfect lockstep.
We are just at the same point in cryptocurrency adoption as we were with the internet during the 1998–99 bubble.
So, everything lines up – from the fundamental adoption rates right down to the big price collapses both markets experienced after the first two phases of adoption.
This means that if I’m right, some of the best opportunities in the crypto market are still ahead of us …
Because they happen during the big upward part of the adoption curve …
Which begins right around the time 10%–20% of people embrace the innovation.
And that’s the point in time we’re at right now.
Could Bitcoin still go down a lot from here?
Sure, it could. It could continue to crash for a variety of reasons.
Remember, at one point after the Nasdaq collapse, Apple was trading for just 20 cents a share … the equivalent of Bitcoin falling all the way back to $250.
But I don’t see that happening.
And either way, I believe it’s more likely that Bitcoin will eventually end up much higher than it is today.
After all, once we pass that early adoption threshold, history says widespread adoption comes in large chunks at a faster and faster pace.
So, if Bitcoin has hit a previous high of $68,000 with less than 10% adoption, it’s completely reasonable to think it can go up quite a lot by the time we hit 75% adoption.
This is why, for every Warren Buffett who says Bitcoin is going to zero, there’s a Cathie Wood who says it can go as high as a million.
Especially because by definition, Bitcoin’s supply is strictly limited.
Just a little bump in adoption from Wall Street and large investors — which we’re already starting to see — could send Bitcoin’s price higher, and at a very fast rate.
And if Bitcoin has that type of upward potential, then past bull market cycles show that a handful of lesser-known cryptocurrencies could do much better still.
Just as Apple had far more upside than Amazon did.
