Chris’ note: Regular readers know we often talk about cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology as one of the top money-making trends that should be on your radar.
But even as this sector has exploded, there are still plenty of skeptics out there who doubt its profit potential.
That’s why today, we turn to Disruptive Profits senior analyst Marco Wutzer to show you why this is an opportunity you can’t afford to ignore.
Marco is one of the pioneers of cryptocurrencies and has been involved with digital currencies since the late 1990s – long before the current blockchain breakthrough.
He made so much money from his early contrarian investments in digital currencies that he dropped everything and traveled the world.
Below, Marco breaks down why blockchain technology is here to stay… and why investors don’t want to be sitting on the sidelines as it takes off…

When I first started working with blockchain technology in Argentina back in 2010, it was still a new frontier.
Even I – as a true believer in individual sovereignty and decentralization – was skeptical. The technology was unproven, and there was no supporting infrastructure at all. User and merchant adoption was close to zero.
Today, we have a solid global blockchain foundation and pioneers are joining the new system, which I call the “Blockchain Ecosystem.”
Since 2013, the crypto economy has grown from $1.6 billion to $230 billion. That’s a 14,275% increase in just six years.
But despite the strides this ecosystem has made over the past decade, many people out there still aren’t convinced of the power of blockchain technology.
In fact, it is still quite common to hear famous investors calling cryptocurrencies a scam, fraud, Ponzi scheme, or bubble.
But many folks who are skeptical of blockchain technology have absolutely no idea of the magnitude of the change that is unfolding.
Today, I’ll show you how blockchain technology is going to change your life… and why it promises an opportunity to make enormous profits…
The New Precious Metals
On the financial side, one of the key benefits of blockchains is that the money supply of a cryptocurrency is strictly regulated.
You may think this is similar to fiat currencies like the U.S. dollar. But it’s not.
With fiat currencies, central banks can “print money” and add trillions of additional currency units to the money supply… meaning that more and more money is chasing the same amount of goods and services.
Prices go up, and your money is worth less.
We’ve seen extreme examples of this in Venezuela and Zimbabwe, to name just two recent examples.
But with cryptos, it’s different. There is no arbitrary increase in the money supply, eroding your purchasing power.
That’s because a lot of cryptocurrencies work similarly to precious metals. The supply increases by a small amount every year through what’s called “mining.”
Without getting too into the weeds, this supply is regulated by a computer algorithm. This algorithm limits the maximum number of tokens that can ever be generated. Once that limit is reached, it’s no longer possible to mine additional tokens.
Let’s use 3% as an example.
If new tokens are mined at a rate of 3% per year for many decades into the future, eventually, the maximum token supply will be reached, and no more tokens will be created.
This avoids the problem with fiat currencies I mentioned earlier – which is not limited to Third World countries. Even the mighty U.S. dollar has lost 95% of its purchasing power since 1913.
That’s why cryptocurrencies can give you peace of mind.
They allow you to save capital and plan for the future without the risk of your money suddenly being worth a lot less because more of it was created out of thin air.
A New Era of Privacy
But blockchain technology goes far beyond just money. For example, it is also making its way to communication.
There are now encrypted chat apps running on blockchains that guarantee your privacy. No longer do your private conversations need to run through the servers of a big corporation.
Social media is also moving to the blockchain. Established services such as Facebook and Twitter make a living off of analyzing your behavior and preferences – and then selling your data to advertisers for big profits.
In the Blockchain Ecosystem, you retain control of your personal information. Your data and your files are split into pieces, encrypted, and distributed across the network. No outside company can access and sell your information.
This is also why your data is now safe from hackers.
Right now, your data can be found on centralized networks, meaning a hacker needs to hack just one server to get your information. That’s how hackers stole Social Security numbers, birthdays, addresses, and driver’s license numbers from 143 million Americans when they hacked Equifax in 2017.
And it was not an isolated case. Such high-profile hacks happen all the time.
But the blockchain is decentralized. You cannot disrupt it by hacking a single server.
In a decentralized system, a hacker would need to hack the entire network instead of just one server. It’s basically impossible. That’s why a decentralized system is much more secure and your data is much safer.
A Rare Paradigm Shift
Increasingly, the question won’t be which areas of our lives blockchain technology will affect, but which areas it won’t affect.
Just like with the steam engine, the printing press, and the internet, every once in a while, there are huge disruptions that shake things up and completely change the way we do things.
Blockchain technology is one of those disruptions.
The trend is catching on. The Blockchain Ecosystem is growing fast.
Billions of investment dollars are pouring into the development of blockchain technology, making cryptocurrencies faster, cheaper, easier to use, and more scalable.
And as I pointed out above, blockchain is no longer only about money. Far from it.
Now, blockchains are being developed for insurance, lending, social media, business supply chains, computing resources, machine learning, voting, medical records, virtual reality, real estate, gambling, power grids, and hundreds of other areas.
We’ve already gone from just one blockchain to hundreds of blockchains. Soon, there will be tens of thousands of blockchains.
And as this global blockchain network develops and grows, it will become more valuable, more useful, and more powerful.
A very rare paradigm shift is taking place – one that gives you the opportunity to make extraordinary profits.
This is the kind of opportunity where a few thousand dollars can turn into so much money that you won’t need to worry about money ever again.
Are You Part of the 0.3%?
Let me leave you with this…
Most people have heard of cryptocurrencies by now. But how many people actually own them?
The answer might surprise you…
Only 0.3% of the world’s population owns cryptocurrencies today.
This little statistic is an extremely valuable piece of information. Here’s why…
If you get positioned in the next generation of crypto projects right now, you’ll profit from the biggest growth wave to hit the crypto market.
When the other 99.7% buys in – in other words, when mass adoption begins – we’ll see gains of a magnitude that dwarf even 2017’s impressive rally.
That’s why now is the time to get in.
The best way to start taking advantage of this trend is by buying bitcoin if you haven’t already. This will give you some initial exposure to the crypto market.
And you’ll need bitcoin to buy other blockchain projects that are solving the problems I mentioned above – ones that offer even bigger profit potential.

P.S. I recently found one blockchain project with huge potential…
A private tech company just developed a new product that will disrupt a $9.9 trillion market. Right now, it’s trading under 10 cents a share… and it has plenty of upside.
But it’s only a matter of time before Wall Street piles into the stock and locks everyone out of this deal. That’s why I’ve found a way for everyday investors to take advantage before the big money can get in.
You can find out how to beat Wall Street at its own game – and profit from this new technology – by watching this video right here.
