Imagine creating an invention that would go on to spawn billions in sales… But not getting your fair share.
That’s the case of Lonnie Johnson, a life-long inventor.
It started in high school with his first invention, a four-foot-tall robot with operating hands.
At the time, 1968, it was quite an impressive feat. And it won Lonnie his high school science competition. He’s been an inventor ever since.
In 1979, he got his first patent on a device he called the Digital Distance Measuring Instrument. Without getting into the technical details, it’s the foundational technology for CDs and DVDs.
At their peak, CDs generated over $13 billion in sales annually. For DVDs, it was $16 billion.
Just 1% of those sales would be nearly $300 million. Yet Lonnie Johnson didn’t get a dime.
While a successful inventor, he was a neophyte in business. And at the time, he didn’t realize he should pursue a monetary reward.
He called it “the big fish that got away” and vowed not to let it happen again.
Johnson’s next invention came in the 1980s when he was creating nozzles that shot a stream of water across the bathroom, and he thought it would make a good water gun.
With that, the “Power Drencher” was born.
Eventually, Johnson found a small manufacturer, Larami Corporation, to make the gun. Johnson tweaked his design. And they renamed it to the “Super Soaker.”
You probably recognize the name. And you’re well aware the Super Soaker became a hit.
First appearing in stores in 1990, by 1991 it had generated $200 million in sales. And by 2015, it topped $1 billion.
The best part is that this time Johnson had a deal in place. A royalty deal.
In exchange for the use of his invention, Larami would pay Johnson a percentage of the sales.
Now, we don’t know exactly how much Johnson made. But at one point, he had to take Hasbro (which acquired Larami) to court over his royalty payments.
And in 2016, the case settled. The court awarded Johnson $72.9 million.
As you can see, a royalty is a powerful way to generate wealth.
Today, I’m going to introduce you to a new type of royalty. We call them “Tech Royalties.”
And as I’ll show you, you don’t have to do anything nearly as difficult as inventing a Super Soaker.
What are Tech Royalties?
For the first time in history – you can now collect royalties… on new technology.
And all this is happening at the exact moment in history when technology is accelerating beyond anything we’ve ever seen.
So, for the first time in history, you can invest in new technologies by collecting Tech Royalties… which could pay you as the underlying technology accelerates.
Here’s how Daily editor Teeka Tiwari describes it:
Imagine owning a small stake in a portfolio of 10 music acts, and one becomes The Beatles while another becomes Elton John.
This is the opportunity in front of you right now with Tech Royalties.
Some of these names will end up being worth hundreds of billions of dollars. It’ll be like owning a piece of The Beatles when they played nightclub gigs in Hamburg before hitting it big in the U.S.
You’ll own a piece of them and the income they kick out forever.
So, where is this opportunity? The answer lies in a new subsector of the crypto market.
You see, certain crypto projects pay out rewards. It’s similar to the way a stock pays a dividend.
By investing in these projects, you can set yourself up for a steady income stream, just like a royalty.
The time for Tech Royalties is now, and they’ll offer early adopters the highest rewards.
Consider this… Interest rates sit near record lows. And many companies have cut their dividends. Meanwhile, Tech Royalties pay an average yield of 10%. That’s 7x higher than the current yield on the S&P 500.
While that’s exciting, Tech Royalties have an even more exciting feature. We call it the exponential dividend.
You see, crypto rewards are paid in more crypto. That’s different from stock dividends, which are generally paid in cash.
That means crypto rewards appreciate at the same rate as the tokens themselves.
Take one of our current Tech Royalties, for example. When we first took a position in this token, it had a reward rate of roughly 7% annually.
But now the token is up over 641%. Our effective yield, meaning the yield on our original cost, is now 41.4%.
That means you could recoup your entire investment in roughly two years.
The best part is… this project’s technology is accelerating, and we expect an even higher yield in the future.
The Time to Act is Now
Doing what Lonnie Johnson did… taking the time and effort to create an invention… getting it to market… having a legal battle with Hasbro… that’s difficult.
And the worst part is that patents eventually expire. And with the patent goes the royalty payment.
But it’s not that difficult with Tech Royalties.
You only need three simple things… a computer… a few hundred dollars to invest… and about 10 minutes to get started.
And investing in just a handful of the best Tech Royalties – before they go mainstream – could be all you need to collect substantial income… for years to come.
That’s why I encourage you to check out Teeka’s first-ever Tech Royalty Summit on Wednesday, February 24 at 8 p.m. ET. During this event, Teeka will show you exactly what Tech Royalties are… how they work… and which ones to avoid.
Plus, he’ll share the details on a highly anticipated IPO happening this year that could thrust Tech Royalties into the limelight.
So if you’re looking to generate income, I urge you to attend Teeka’s free event.
Investing in Tech Royalties could mean the difference between collecting royalties and living like Lonnie Johnson… or betting your retirement on the measly 10% returns you might see in the market.
