Do you ever wish you could see the future?
Imagine knowing Bitcoin would be become a big deal when it was only worth twenty dollars instead of twenty thousand dollars…
…Here’s the good news: Even though we can’t see the future, we can predict with a high degree of certainty that Bitcoin and crypto as a whole will continue on its 5–10x (500–1,000%+) trajectory every four years until its marketcap ceiling is hit. The same can be said for other established, trusted cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum.
In March, 2023, we’re likely very close to this market cycle’s bottom — but not there just yet. While there are people out there that think crypto is getting ready to explode once again, I absolutely do not. We’re still recovering from a soft recession, and technical analysis indicates Bitcoin has the potential to fall as low as $12,000 before it hits $120,000 over the course of the next year (ahead of its halving period in May, 2024). Feel free to get back with me next year and let me how accurate my prediction is!
But how can I predict all this you might ask? Here are nine reasons:
- Blockchain technology (which is monetarily represented by cryptocurrencies) has undeniably huge practical utility across virtually all industries — and we haven’t even scratched the surface of what’s possible.
- It wasn’t a winning strategy when phone companies attempted to ‘ban’ the internet in the 1990s, and it hasn’t been a winning strategy for banks and other financial institutions that have tried to ‘cancel’ crypto. Moral of this story: Take advantage of new and improved technology. Don’t just try to make it go away. In the face of emergent technologies, adapt or die.
- Bitcoin has a four year halving cycle (every four years the supply of Bitcoin that’s possible to mine decreases by 50%), which from a supply and demand standpoint, makes Bitcoin deflationary — which makes it exponentially more precious over time. Bitcoin’s next halving period is May, 2024. Historically we see strong upward price action in the six months ahead of these four year halving periods (I will personally be accumulating crypto November, 2023 and onward).
- As flawed fiat (i.e. traditional) currencies (that are backed by corrupt, self-serving governments) are exposed, their value decreases. A second order effect of this is inflation, which we can observe. Even though one dollar will always equal one dollar, the purchasing power of a single dollar will go down over time, because dollars are created to be inflationary.
- On the flip side, as people lose faith in the USD and traditional investments (such as stocks) that are intrinsically tied to USD, they will begin looking for alternatives. Enter crypto.
- As mentioned above, we are currently experiencing a shallow recession, but what happens when recessions end? We enter a recovery period, during which [good] investments go absolutely nuts 100% of the time.
- Speaking of recessions, even though the crypto market does suffer during national and global financial crises, this isn’t exactly because crypto is intrinsically tied to USD or other fiat currencies — It’s more-so because USD and other fiat currencies are tied to crypto.
- As more and more people ditch traditional currencies and opt in to buying, selling, paying with, and even getting paid in crypto, crypto will gradually become inflation-proof (because crypto is a lot more than being just something you can invest in). This is a long way off, but personally know several people who live completely off the grid (financially) and have literally only used crypto for everything for the last several years.
- Finally, one Bitcoin will always equal one Bitcoin. Bitcoin and most cryptocurrencies are designed to be either stable or deflationary. Over time, as Bitcoin becomes more and more precious, people will realize that that a significant factor in Bitcoin’s perceived value is due to the lack of value inflationary US dollars represent.
Imagine ten to twenty years from now, when one Bitcoin is worth more than a million dollars (assuming the prediction model I subscribe to holds its course), would you wish you had invested today when it was worth less than $20,000?
It has to be said though — Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other high marketcap cryptocurrencies tend to have less up and down (less volatility) than their less established counterparts. In fact, Bitcoin is actually a longterm ‘low risk/low reward’ investment, by crypto standards.
Now, imagine if over the next few weeks and months you took the time to learn everything you could about crypto investing. Imagine if in the next few months you invested in an emerging cryptocurrency that represented a blockchain project with promising utility, credible founders, and solid tokenomics (more on this later…)
Unlike with Bitcoin, which has a lower appreciation ceiling, you could easily 10x or even 100x your investment over the next four years.
But let’s be realistic: It’s hard to find up and coming crypto projects and be right about them longterm… But even if an investor is wrong about ninety-nine investments, yet very much right about just one, she can still make an overall positive return on your total amount of money invested.
I only say all of this because I personally knew nothing about crypto back in summer of 2019. But once I started learning about crypto, I quickly realized what a game changer it was for my financial future. And as a former licensed financial advisor, I already knew most traditional investments were just a way for billionaire hedge funds and brokerages to siphon hard earned money out of the working class in exchange for laughably low returns).
Within the last two years I’ve turned $5,000 into over $300,000 in crypto. Even though I can’t guarantee similar results, for anyone who’s committed to learning, willing to put in the work to change habits and beliefs about what’s possible, and open to being coachable, I will do my best to help these people get there.
Now let me be very clear: This article is not financial advice, and nothing CryptoFemme shares or teaches should ever be construed as financial advice. I would never tell anyone they should invest in crypto, nor would I recommend any one specific cryptocurrency. Instead of providing crypto-fish, I think it’s more sustainable to teach crypto-curious women how to fish. 🎣
TLDR: You haven’t missed the boat!
Crypto is not close to being mainstream, and the ‘Amazon’ and ‘Apple’ of crypto likely haven’t even been founded yet. Stay committed to listening and learning, and you’ll do alright over time.
