So far, 2020 has been a series of unrelenting shocks.
An impeachment… A deadly pandemic… Peaceful protests…Violent riots… And a steep stock market crash.
It’s no surprise when The Wall Street Journal asked readers how they feel things are going, 80% responded: “America is spiraling out of control.”
Folks, it takes much less than 80% of the population to trigger a revolution.
In the years leading up to the American Revolution… some historians estimate only 40% of the population supported rebelling against the British.
Yet that’s exactly what happened.
Seemingly minor acts like Paul Revere’s ride and the Boston Tea Party ignited a revolution.
A small group of colonies took on Great Britain, the most powerful empire in the world… and won.
America was born.
Today, you may hear people say a revolution like this could never happen again. And yet the facts are clear… It’s already started.
But this time, it won’t be a violent revolution. Instead, it’ll be a technological one. And like any revolution, there will be winners and losers…
The Next Technological Revolution
When people read the word “revolution,” they often envision violence. And I can understand that.
The French, Russian, and Iranian revolutions were some of the bloodiest times in history.
But history also teaches us that the greatest revolutions weren’t borne of violence. They were borne of technology.
During the Industrial Age (1750–1900), humans vastly improved the steam engine, invented the automobile, the stethoscope, and the telephone. Great advances were made in medicine… including the discovery of antiseptics and anesthesia.
Even during the Great Depression, more Americans became millionaires than any other point in our nation’s history. Think of industrialists like Ford, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, and Carnegie.
And the same holds true for every major economic development since.
Just recall what happened during the last major shift – the Internet Revolution:
- Amazon put booksellers like Borders, along with thousands of other brick-and-mortar stores, out of business… But it’s also helped millions easily sell their products throughout the world. Of course, it’s been a life-changer for early investors, who’ve made 160,492% since 1997.
- Netflix put Blockbuster and countless other video stores out of business and is currently threatening cable companies… But it’s also improved the way TV and movies are made – while handing investors gains of 44,430% over the past 18 years.
- And eBay made it much easier for us to conduct e-commerce with total strangers. Its stock has made investors peak gains of 8,343% since 1998.
Of course, the list goes on and on.
Craigslist, Uber, Skype… All of these internet-based businesses – and hundreds more like them – have made people who saw the change coming rich.
How can I be so sure we’re about to experience something similar in our country so soon?
Because it’s already happening here in America.
The Fourth Technological Revolution
The next great technological revolution will be powered by the blockchain. I know it sounds crazy. Most people just think of blockchain as the underlying network for cryptos like bitcoin.
But friends, nothing could be further from the truth. Blockchain is the most explosive, transformative technology in the history of the world.
In fact, I’ll go out on a limb and say blockchain technology is the No. 1 investment of this decade.
I realize that’s a big prediction… Yet I’m not the only one who sees the growth potential of blockchain tech.
The World Economic Forum predicts blockchain will account for 10% of global GDP by 2027. That’s an estimated $8.6 trillion.
That’s more than the market cap of the three largest U.S. companies: Amazon, Apple, and Microsoft.
Remember, blockchain tech was implemented in 2009. Yet, in less than 15 years, it’s expected to surpass some of the biggest tech names in the world.
Soon, we’ll see the birth of an entirely new system.
That’s the thing about technology. As we become more advanced, the speed of transition and pace of innovation increase.
Just take a look at the chart below. It shows how fast technology advances…
Whether you choose to invest in this revolutionary new technology or not… It will change your life for the better. Just like the internet, the automobile, and airplanes did.
But if you understand its promise and place a small, calculated bet right now… it could forever alter your life for the better, just like it has for countless other early investors…
That’s why I’m writing you today: To make sure you’re ready for the next big transition.
That way, at the very least, you won’t be caught off guard by the massive changes already underway.
Because if you truly understand what’s about to happen, you’ll realize we’re at an early enough stage that you still have enough time to take advantage of what is no doubt a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity…
You see, there are two sides to every economic shift such as the one we’re about to experience.
On one side, certain segments of the population are devastated. Many jobs disappear… entire businesses and even industries vanish at an astonishing rate.
But then there’s the other side…
The segment of the population that takes advantage of this shift and uses it for its own benefit.
Those people flourish.
The money they make wraps them in a lifelong cocoon of comfort and security. This is already the reality for many of my subscribers. I want it to be your reality, too.
I want you to understand this is one of the biggest economic stories I’ve come across in my professional investing career.
Unfortunately, I’m running out of space in this article to talk about it.
