Since the 1960s, there’s been one major investing idea for each decade…
In the 1960s, it was the Nifty Fifty. These were popular large-cap stocks on the New York Stock Exchange like Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, and Procter & Gamble.
In the 1970s, gold had a major bull run. It rocketed 1,780% during the decade of some of the highest inflation rates in U.S. history.
In the 1980s, Japanese companies were the next big thing. The Nikkei 225 index ran up 493%.
The tech-heavy Nasdaq dominated the 1990s. Over 10 years, it rose 752%.
The early 2000s was the heyday of oil. Prices jumped 590% in an era of giant SUVs and Middle East wars.
And in the last decade, we saw the rise of FAANG stocks – Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Google.
These companies disrupted entire industries and changed the game. In doing so, they averaged 3,100% returns… and powered the market to all-time highs.
(The chart above compares the amount returned for each decade’s investment theme, factoring in inflation. For example, a return multiple of 2 means you would’ve doubled your money. And a return multiple of 10 means you would’ve returned 10x your money.)
So what’s the big investment trend in the 2020s?
I’ll tell you that in today’s essay.
The No. 1 Investment of the 2020s
Daily editor Teeka Tiwari calls it genesis technology…
In 100 years from now, when people look back on the waves of innovation launching us to new levels of human advancement, they’ll point to this technology at this moment in time and say, “That was the beginning”… At the genesis. So what technology am I referring to? The blockchain.
When Teeka first started telling his subscribers about the blockchain in 2016, it was nothing more than the digital ledger for bitcoin. Its main purpose was to track cryptocurrency transactions.
Today, we’re seeing blockchain disrupt entire industries, from finance to supply chains to health care.
Longtime readers know the blockchain is an online ledger. And like any other ledger, it tracks transactions.
But it has three main advantages over traditional internet networks:
It’s decentralized. Data is distributed, meaning it isn’t stored in one location… making blockchains much harder to hack than centralized databases.
It uses state-of-the-art encryption. This makes transactions much safer.
It’s peer-to-peer. This allows individuals to transact with one another without an intermediary – lowering costs.
Now, the World Economic Forum has projected that blockchain will store 10% of the world’s GDP by 2027. That’s $8.6 trillion – a 295,762% rise from today’s $2.9 billion.
So it’s no wonder we’re seeing so many industries adopting blockchain tech.
Many new blockchain applications are underway. For example, giant companies – like Amazon, Comcast, Microsoft, Pfizer, Toyota, Visa, Walmart, and more – are exploring blockchain technology. And 90% of the world’s banks are testing blockchain applications.
Position Yourself in This Idea Today
According to Goldman Sachs, blockchain technology will add $37 billion to the U.S. economy by 2021. And 77% of financial companies expect to implement blockchain technology this year.
Stock exchanges in Australia, Switzerland, and Singapore are planning to launch blockchain technology by 2021.
Meanwhile, global investment bank RBC Capital Markets estimates the blockchain ecosystem could be worth up to $10 trillion within the next 10 to 15 years.
That’s why Teeka considers blockchain his No. 1 investment of this decade…
Now is the time to position yourself in this trend. I want you to know we are at the early stages of blockchain adoption… The opportunity to make a fortune from the next Apple, Google, Facebook, or Amazon won’t come from traditional tech. It will come from the blockchain.
Remember, the World Economic Forum estimates blockchain will store 10% of the world’s GDP – $8.6 trillion – within the next seven years. By contrast, the entire crypto market cap is around $250 billion today.
That’s potentially a staggering 3,300% jump in less than a decade.
So if you want to test the waters in the blockchain space, consider a small stake in the Amplify Transformational Data Sharing ETF (BLOK). It’s an actively managed fund that invests in companies developing or using blockchain technology.
But remember: Cryptos and blockchain companies are volatile. So never bet more than you can afford to lose.

P.S. Blockchain technology has already proven so important to our national security that President Trump issued a special executive order on it.
Right now, no fewer than nine different government agencies are working to ensure it reaches its full potential.
Teeka has put together a presentation to pull back the curtain on this emerging trend. So click here to see why he firmly believes this tech will be the No. 1 investment of the decade…
