Bitcoin is up 46% this year. And it’s nearing its all-time high of $68,789.

So it wouldn’t surprise us if most people think they missed the boat on bitcoin again…

However, there’s still plenty of upside left in bitcoin. Our team projects it to hit $120,000 this year and eventually $500,000.

That’s still a solid double in the short term and an 8x gain in the long term.

So even though bitcoin is in a bull market, there’s plenty of runway left. That’s because it’s what we call a Maverick Investment.

Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines a maverick as “an unorthodox or independent-minded person.”

When many people think of a maverick, the first person who comes to mind is Tom Cruise’s character from the movie Top Gun.

In Top Gun, Maverick is a guy who goes his own way. He’s free-thinking. He doesn’t follow the crowd. And because of that, he’s successful.

That’s exactly the mindset you need to survive this New Order of Money. But you won’t find maverick ideas on Wall Street.

Maverick Investments exist outside the standard 60/40 model of equities and bonds. We like them because they contain three important traits…

When money becomes too abundant (via inflation), it seeks out real, rare, and enduringly desirable assets.

  • Real: The harder it is to “print” an asset… the more real it is.

  • Rare: These are assets with low supply.

  • Enduringly desirable: These are assets with a history of having high demand from wealthy people.

Based on these traits, you can see why bitcoin is our favorite Maverick Investment. 

Three Reasons to Buy Bitcoin Before It’s Too Late

Simply put, Maverick Investments offer asymmetric returns… where you invest a small sum for a realistic chance at outsized returns… So you don’t need to risk a lot to make a lot.

And even if it doesn’t return as much as expected, over time, a Maverick Investment can still beat the pants off the returns of conventional assets like stocks and bonds.

Right now, bitcoin is one of the best Maverick Investments to buy and hold for multiple decades.

That’s because bitcoin follows the three qualities of Maverick Investments:

  • Rare: Bitcoin has a maximum supply of 21 million, with the last bitcoin fraction mined in 2140. That makes it rare.

    The programmed “hard cap” has helped bitcoin stay the leader of the space even as thousands of other cryptocurrencies have come into existence.

  • Real: While you can’t touch bitcoin any more than you can touch the numbers in your bank account, it’s still real. Bitcoin is used for financial transactions at a growing rate.

    And it’s allowing a true separation of government from money… offering millions a path out of the deliberate destruction of their fiat currencies via inflation and runaway money printing.

  • Enduringly desirable: Today, bitcoin is attracting billionaire investors, family offices, and traditional financial institutions.

    They recognize that millions want to invest in bitcoin as easily as they buy and sell shares of stock… And that an estimated 1 billion bitcoin wallets are in use today.

    That makes bitcoin very desirable.

If you have the means to do so, you should absolutely view any drop in bitcoin from now to the halving in April as a buying opportunity.

That will help increase your returns when bitcoin surges to new highs.
