Today’s crypto market reminds me of 1995 in the internet space…
Back then, there was a similar fervor from individual investors. And it was the first time I saw “mom and pop” get the jump on institutional investors.
They were coming in making all this money on little-known internet stocks in just a few weeks or months.
Paravant Computer Systems was up 205%. TransAct Technologies was up 126%. And TeleTech Holdings was up 125%. They were so far ahead of the game…
I remember pitching an internet startup to an investor at the time…
He went to an internet café and got online to test it out. And he told me, “I can’t invest in this. There’s nothing here!”
And I said, “You’re right! But this technology is going to change the world, you’re just seeing the first stages… Within a few years, everything we buy will be over the internet.”
People couldn’t understand that back then. They couldn’t grasp the revolutionary and groundbreaking potential of the internet.
What Wall Street needed to see was a catalyst for mass adoption…
And on August 9, 1995, they saw that spark. That’s the date Netscape launched its initial public offering (IPO) – the day a private company lists on a public exchange.
At that time, the internet had already been around for over 15 years. But there were just 16 million internet users. And only 0.3% of the world’s population used the internet.
Then Netscape Navigator became popular and everything changed…
Navigator was a user-friendly web browser. You didn’t need to know anything about computer code to use it. And anyone with a modem could surf the internet with ease.
By the end of 1996, the number of internet users had skyrocketed to 36 million – an increase of 125%. Five years later, the internet had a half-billion users.
It thrust the internet into the mainstream… It ignited the dot-com craze from 1995–2000… And it marked the shift to the Internet Age.
The “Netscape moment” was the spark plug that unleashed over $5 trillion of investor capital into internet stocks in the latter half of the 1990s.
It showed Wall Street could make billions in an entirely new industry.
I’m telling you this today because the smart money is now preparing for crypto’s very own “Netscape moment.”
We’re Entering the Crypto Age
Just as Netscape marked the start of the Internet Age… a single event in 2021 is set to rocket our economy into the Crypto Age.
When we look back, I believe people will point to this catalyst as the moment crypto officially went mainstream.
More importantly, this catalyst will unleash a brand-new subsector of the crypto market. I call it “Tech Royalties.”
You’ve probably seen me write about Tech Royalties a lot recently. That’s because I believe they will disrupt the entire financial system.
If you know how a traditional royalty works then you’ll understand how Tech Royalties work.
Take a computer manufacturer, for example. It pays Microsoft a royalty for the right to use its Windows operating system on the computers it makes.
That’s what a Tech Royalty is. It’s a brand-new method blockchain projects are using to drive the adoption of their technology by allowing investors to take part and cash in as the projects grow.
And the catalyst I’m talking about will – at a minimum – incentivize 45 million people to embrace Tech Royalties.
Let me explain…
With nearly 45 million customers, Coinbase is the world’s largest centralized crypto exchange. And it plans to IPO this year at a valuation of up to $100 billion. That’s more than the combined market caps of Ford Motor Company, Macy’s, and American Airlines.
Now, Coinbase’s IPO is huge. It’ll absolutely blow the pants off Netscape’s IPO.
But I’m not here to tell you to buy Coinbase… I’m here to tell you that we have to get into Tech Royalties before those 45 million people storm into this market.
Profiting from Wall Street Greed
So why do I believe these 45 million Coinbase customers will even care about Tech Royalties?
As I always tell you… never underestimate Wall Street greed.
Remember, Tech Royalties give you a cut of their underlying crypto technology. As a middleman Coinbase stands to make hundreds of millions of dollars in fees “helping” their clients get access to these yields.
Right now, some pay 8%, 10%, 12%, 15%, and even 300% in certain rare cases.
Coinbase will rake in a 25% commission fee on the royalties you receive.
That’s why Coinbase will do anything and everything in its power to direct its users to these cryptos.
So think about it logically. If Coinbase can take 45 million people and put $100 billion of customer funds into Tech Royalties at 10%… it could see about $2.5 billion per year in fees.
It’s in the best interest of Coinbase to encourage every single one of its customers to invest in Tech Royalties…
Because if Coinbase can take a quarter of those rewards for itself, why wouldn’t it?
It’s like Visa taking a cut of every credit card transaction you make. It gets between you and the merchant and gets paid for literally just facilitating the transaction.
Friends, if only a fraction of these 45 million users embrace Tech Royalties, we have a chance to achieve generational wealth. Not life-changing wealth… Generational wealth.
And this is not just some pie-in-the-sky scenario, either.
Coinbase literally had to create a “waitlist” for people to sign up to invest in this subsector of cryptos. That’s how much anticipation there is for Tech Royalties.
Can you see the opportunity here?
That’s why yesterday, I held my first-ever Tech Royalty Summit, where more than 20,000 people signed up to attend.
During the event, I explained Tech Royalties… how you can invest in them… and how you can get in before the crowd.
Plus, I revealed my No. 1 long-term Tech Royalty play for free – just for watching.
And because I want all my readers to have a chance at Tech Royalties before Coinbase unleashes its 45 million users, I’m replaying this event for a limited time.
