Let’s not beat around the bush: The market is volatile right now.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is showing no signs of ending anytime soon. Inflation is running at its highest rate in 40 years. And the Fed’s promised rate hikes have investors spooked.
All of this has contributed to the crypto markets trading down. Since reaching its all-time high in November last year, bitcoin is down 42%. And the overall crypto market is down 66%.
It’s absolutely no fun to go through times like these. I get it.
But I want you to understand that crypto has been here before… and this is when fortunes are made.
Back in April 2016, when I first recommended crypto to my readers, the crypto market was much more immature and illiquid. So the volatility was far worse than it is today.
Take bitcoin, for example. Throughout its history, we saw drawdowns of 83%… 61%… and 53%.
Now, if you were an early investor, it’d be understandable if you looked at these drops in the market and ran for the exits. Those were scary times. And crypto was still very young and unproven.
However, by 2016, I was convinced of crypto’s long-term potential. I was watching the smartest people in the world flood into crypto.
My years of experience gained through the tech boom of the ’90s told me this was an industry at the beginning of a massive, multi-decade trend.
More importantly, the market volatility in the asset meant investors didn’t understand how to value them. Early on, I had working models that suggested many projects in the space were deeply undervalued.
So I viewed the price drops as tremendous buying opportunities. All I had to do was identify which assets had the most long-term potential… and strike when they fell to attractive levels.
That strategy led to three of my biggest crypto winners… with each delivering more than 10,000% gains.
The Best Ideas Outperform in the Worst Markets
Take Ethereum (ETH)… In 2016, it hit a then-all-time high of $14.50 per token. Over the next few weeks, it fell 51% to $7.17 per token.
But my valuation models convinced me Ethereum was tremendously undervalued.
I knew that buying in the middle of its correction would give my subscribers a chance at life-changing gains.
So I recommended Ethereum to my subscribers on April 18, 2016, at about $9.
In just over five years, Ethereum hit an all-time high of $4,800 – a 53,233% gain. That turns every $1,000 invested into $532,333.
Here’s the thing: Those gains wouldn’t be as good if I had waited for Ethereum and the overall crypto market to improve.
Imagine if I had seen Ethereum drop to $9 from $14.50 and said, “I’m not comfortable. I’m going to wait until Ethereum completes its next major upgrade.”
Ethereum had a big upgrade coming called the Byzantium Fork that would make the network faster and more secure. But that didn’t happen until October 2017.
By that time, it was $334. If you put $1,000 into Ethereum at $334, it’d be worth $13,371 at its peak. That’s a decent 1,337% gain…
But it’s almost 40 times less than the life-changing 53,233% peak gain that my subscribers saw. We achieved that gain because we weren’t afraid to buy a great project when it was in the dumps.
Now, Ethereum wasn’t the only time this strategy paid off.
I also recommended another token in November 2017. In the months before, it had fallen 30% from a high of $2.70.
Yet, I knew it was a superior project… I was convinced the token’s slump would be temporary. I didn’t want to wait for sentiment to improve.
So I recommended it at $1.88 per token. And it skyrocketed to $675 for a peak gain of 35,804%. That’s enough to turn every $1,000 into $358,042.
Sure, I could’ve played it safe and waited until the token attracted more attention and got over its slump.
I could have waited and recommended it a few months later when it traded around $10.
That would have returned 6,650% when it peaked… not bad. But that’s over 5 times less than what my subscribers saw.
That’s the power of buying when fear is high. It’s the difference between an impressive 1,337%… and a life-changing 53,233%.
A Happy Market Offers Meager Returns
Here’s a more recent example. In March 2020, markets sold off in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The stock market crashed 29%. The crypto markets crashed 58%. Bitcoin fell over 62%, briefly dropping below $3,650.
The headlines were brutal:
“Crypto is Dying a ‘Well Deserved Death’” – FullyCrypto.com
“The Crypto Collapse Gets Cataclysmic” – Financial Times
“Devastating Bitcoin Wipeout Could See The Price Go ‘Sub-$1,000’” – Forbes
On a scale of 1 to 10, fear stood at a 10.
At times like that, it’s tough not to sell your entire portfolio, let alone add to it. But that’s exactly what I encouraged my subscribers to do on March 16 that year.
We added a crypto income token to one of our portfolios… And I’m sure many of my subscribers thought I was nuts to recommend buying into such a negative environment… But it paid off handsomely.
We bought it a shade under $0.14. In just two years, we sold a portion of the token for $116.41 – a gain of 84,685%. That turns every $1,000 invested into $846,851.
Imagine if we made the mistake of waiting until the COVID fears calmed down and markets regained their footing…
By then, the token was already trading for $18.79. Your peak gain would have shrunk from 84,685% to just 526%.
That’s respectable… but you would’ve missed out on a gain 161 times higher than that.
The bottom line is: Your best chance at achieving these life-changing gains is acting when market sentiment is horribly negative… just like it is right now.
Embrace Fear for Massive Gains
The lesson from these success stories is clear: If you have conviction in a project, you can’t wait for the crowd to get bullish with you.
Once you identify a life-changing investment with good fundamentals that’s undervalued, you have to act… even if everything in the market is telling you not to.
Because if you don’t, the opportunity could be gone forever.
That’s exactly the situation we’re in today.
Friends, we’re at the beginning of crypto’s adoption curve. Right now, around 300 million people hold crypto.
Over 7 billion people own mobile phones, which are gateways to the crypto market. And there are more than 8 billion people on the planet.
This is the beginning of the beginning.
So instead of letting this scare you… I urge you to see this volatility as a gift. It’s giving you an even better chance at making life-changing gains that can move the needle on your net worth.
And that’s why I need to tell you about my latest find.
A one-time market event is about to trigger a historic panic in a select handful of cryptos… small altcoins overlooked by much of the market.
These special cryptos make massive gains of 3x, 5x, 10x, and more. On top of that, they’ve generated huge slugs of income for my readers… with annual yields as high as 300%.
(That’s 215 times higher than the average dividend yield on the S&P 500… and 95 times higher than the yield on the 20-year Treasury.)
That’s why I held a special briefing last week called The Coming Crypto Panic.
I explained how this coming crypto panic will be misunderstood by many… and why following my panic playbook could return generational wealth.
For a limited time, you can click here to watch the full replay… but do it soon.
Remember, don’t let volatility and uncertainty scare you out of crypto… as I showed you above, those moments are when truly life-changing returns are made.
