I don’t like talking politics in my newsletters…
Generally, I’m too busy scouring markets and looking for ways to make my subscribers money. And I choose to focus on what unites my subscribers: Our goal of growing wealthier safely.
I recognize any topic remotely political can turn into a powder keg. So I hope I don’t get too much hate mail for talking about an urgent need in our country.
Longtime readers know how much I love the United States of America.
As a child trapped in the United Kingdom’s foster care system, I had two dreams: Move to New York City… and get a job on Wall Street.
By age 16, I found my way to the Big Apple.
A month after my 18th birthday, I landed a job at Lehman Brothers. Two years after that, I became the youngest vice president in the history of Shearson Lehman.
America gave me everything I value: opportunity, mentors, love, friendship, and the type of painful life lessons only a free market economy can provide.
I’m sure most of you feel the same way… regardless of which side of the aisle you’re on.
America is the greatest democracy on the planet. So the one thing I believe we can all agree on is the need for secure elections, with results we can trust.
Every vote must count. We can’t afford to wonder if our elections have been tampered with.
This concern led to a battle between the White House and the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) this summer… But the controversy surrounding the “hows” and “whys” isn’t what I want to focus on.
Instead, I want to talk about a solution that can forever secure the sanctity of our country’s election process…
You see, our current method of delivering ballots through the mail is outdated. There’s not enough accountability and no efficient way to ensure your vote will be counted.
The solution to this problem lies in what I call “the fourth technological revolution.”
I’ve been pounding the table on it for years, telling anyone who’ll listen that this tech will upend the traditional financial system.
But in recent months, I’ve come to realize its potential goes way beyond money. It could protect our democracy, too.
And with the last presidential debate behind us and Election Day coming up in less than two weeks, it’s a story the mainstream press is completely missing…
A Truly Secure Voting System
As you know, the coronavirus pandemic has made it risky for Americans to stand in long lines in public. So to keep voters safe, many states are turning to mail-in ballots.
The problem is: No matter what you think of mail-in voting, as I mentioned, it’s an outdated system.
With tens of millions of people expected to vote by mail… there are just too many points where someone can tamper with our ballots.
Now, I’m not saying voter fraud is widespread or anything like that… What I am saying is there’s a better way to secure our elections. And it’s through the blockchain.
As you may already know, blockchain is the innovative tech behind bitcoin. It uses a public ledger to verify every transaction.
That’s because at its core, blockchain is really just a very secure way to store information. In fact, I believe it’s the safest way to store information that’s ever been devised.
For instance, the blockchain powering the bitcoin network uses advanced cryptography coupled with a unique way of verifying information that, so far, has made it unhackable.
That’s why the USPS recently patented a form of blockchain for voting…
Just a few months back, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office made the USPS application public. It’s called the “Secure Voting System.” And it describes using blockchain technology to secure mail-in voting:
A registered voter receives a computer-readable code in the mail and confirms identity and confirms correct ballot information in an election. The system separates voter identification and votes to ensure vote anonymity, and stores votes on a distributed ledger in a blockchain.
You don’t need to understand the nuts and bolts of how it works. Just know that it’s a tamperproof way to easily cast your ballot.
The U.S. (and other countries) are embracing blockchain tech because it’s one of the most secure ways to send information.
The Defense Department is testing blockchain for national security… NASA is eyeing it to secure aircraft flight data… The Department of Health and Human Services is adopting it to streamline contracts… The list goes on and on.
So it’s no surprise the USPS wants to harness it to secure one of our most precious rights – voting.
A Non-Partisan Way to Profit
Here’s the most important thing you need to know about the fourth technological revolution…
For the first time in history, we have an asset that allows us to directly profit from a technological shift: cryptocurrencies.
That’s what’s so revolutionary about blockchain. Investors can take a stake directly in the technology in a way they never could during other tech revolutions like the internet.
If you believe – as I do – that blockchain will make our lives better… then you’ll want to place your stake in this technology now.
Friends, it doesn’t matter if you identify as Democrat, Republican, or Independent…
Those who recognize blockchain as the future will take small grubstakes in cryptos… and potentially see them turn into life-changing gains.
Today, you have a choice to invest in the earliest innings… or stand by and watch. Will you act on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity?
Let the Game Come to You!

P.S. Blockchain is poised to completely change our society – from the way we work to the way we socialize and carry out our civic duties. Those who get left behind could slide into poverty… but it’s not too late to get ahead of this massive technological shift.
You see, Wall Street is just waking up to blockchain’s potential… and when it does, trillions of dollars will begin pouring into crypto. So which side of that wave do you want to be on?
