In July 2019, we were finally emerging from the brutal 2018 Crypto Winter…
Bitcoin had risen over 250% from the start of the year. Institutions were coming back into the market. And demand was skyrocketing.
But altcoins – all coins other than bitcoin – were suffering.
Not only were they not rising along with bitcoin… many were collapsing in price.
Subscribers wrote to me, asking if they should sell their altcoins and go all-in on bitcoin.
At the time, I commented on how it was tempting to do just that. Yet I also counseled patience. I pointed out that, after a crypto bear market, bitcoin always outperforms altcoins.
On average, bitcoin will outshine altcoins for about six months. But after that, the altcoin market catches up. We saw this happen during the 2016 crypto bull run…
Patient investors saw the altcoin market rally over 200% from December 2015 to March 2016. Meanwhile, bitcoin grew at a slower rate during that period.
When I made my initial prediction last July, I expected the next altcoin rally to begin in late 2019. And we did see prices bubble up… just not enough to overtake bitcoin.
Once again, I counseled patience and assured my subscribers altcoins would eventually eclipse bitcoin’s performance.
And that’s exactly what happened in January 2020…
As you can see, the top 15 altcoins have outperformed bitcoin since the start of the year. While bitcoin is up only 41%, the largest altcoins are up 79%.
Looking back at 2016’s altcoin rally… you can see we’re at the very beginning of what will be another massive, wealth-building run.
And it’s already starting to show through the bitcoin dominance rate.
If you’re an altcoin investor, the bitcoin dominance rate is one of the most important metrics in crypto. It’s the percentage of the total crypto market cap that bitcoin takes up.
Today, the bitcoin dominance rate is at about 64%. That’s down from 73% in September 2019. And when bitcoin’s dominance falls, altcoin prices rise…
You see, people start buying into altcoins to pursue higher returns. As a result, the altcoin market size ends up swelling relative to the bitcoin market.
So understanding the bitcoin dominance rate can tip you off to when altcoins are about to take off. And right now, the declining dominance rate suggests altcoins will go significantly higher.
The last time bitcoin dominance dropped like this was in 2017 – and it sparked a massive bull run.
During that stretch, bitcoin’s dominance fell below 36%. And while bitcoin still grew 1,602% then… altcoins like Dash, Ethereum, and Neo exploded as much as 4,174%, 8,940%, and 167,496% higher, respectively.
So in the coming months, we’ll see bitcoin dominance continue to drop as hundreds of billions of dollars gush into the altcoin market…
We’re Still in the Early Stages
Crypto is already on fire, and the new decade has only just begun.
Over the weekend, bitcoin broke $10,000 for the first time since October 2019 (before pulling back a bit on Monday). And it’s still up 41% since the beginning of the year.
But the top altcoins are up 79% right now. So while my altcoin prediction was a few months premature… it goes to prove an important point…
For years, I’ve told my subscribers to always focus on the primary trend’s trajectory first. Once you know the trajectory of the trend, you can safely jump on board and not be too bothered about perfect timing.
That’s because a massive trend – like the crypto adoption one we’re in right now – will bail you out of bad timing.
It’s just like buying Microsoft or Oracle in the mid-1990s. These stocks saw drops of 25% and 40%, respectively. But the internet trend was so massive that they still could’ve made you millions of dollars in profits.
That’s the power of a massive trend. And that power is at work in the crypto market right now.
I want you to understand: It’s still the very early days in crypto. It’s like buying into tech stocks in 1995.
Sure, there was a lot of volatility then… But you could’ve scooped up names like Microsoft, Oracle, and Qualcomm for split-adjusted prices of $2.42, $1.84, and $1.05, respectively.
And just $1,000 invested in each of those names in 1995 would be worth as much as $63,350 today (with dividends reinvested).
I want you to know all the pieces are falling into place to create the kind of bull run we haven’t seen since 2017.
For instance, in May 2020, the bitcoin halving will reduce incoming supply to the market by half. The last two times this rare phenomenon occurred (2012 and 2016), we saw crypto prices go up 22,800% and 3,247%, respectively, in just 19–21 months.
In the meantime, institutional demand is picking up just like I told you it would.
Open interest in monthly bitcoin futures on the Intercontinental Exchange’s Bakkt platform hit a record high last week.
And open positions in the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s (CME) bitcoin futures jumped to a five-month high of $249 million last week – up 34.5% from last month.
This is all incredibly bullish. Plus, this demand doesn’t even account for the 500 million stock investors who can’t buy bitcoin on institutional platforms like Bakkt or CME.
But Wall Street is building on-ramps for these retail clients that’ll make buying crypto as easy as buying stocks. Soon, we’ll see a tidal wave of retail and institutional capital come into this space.
And it’ll make early crypto investors rich beyond their dreams…
To make a fortune, all you have to do is take small positions, be patient, and let the momentum of this massive trend propel us to new highs. Know that this space will be volatile. But so long as you position-size properly, you’ll be able to stomach it.
So be rational and be ready – because your life is about to change in ways you can’t imagine.

P.S. One of the biggest beneficiaries of the altcoin market explosion will be a new type of crypto I call “tech royalties.”
You see, tech royalties use software built on crypto technology. But they’re unlike any other crypto you may have heard of before. And they’re nothing like bitcoin.
And if you make the mistake of overlooking this new breed of crypto assets, you’ll be missing out on the chance to take as little as $100 and turn it into $21,667… $49,520… and even $85,487 per year. Click here to learn more…
