The 3 biggest growth trends in crypto… and how to profit

Announcer: Wall Street Unplugged looks beyond the regular headlines heard on mainstream financial media to bring you unscripted interviews and breaking commentary direct from Wall Street, right to you on Main Street.

Frank Curzio: How’s it going out there? It’s October 12th. I’m Frank Curzio, host to the Wall Street Unplugged podcast, were I break the headlines and tell you what’s really moving these markets. I kind of feel bad for the average investor out there, got that news flow and all the stories, and don’t know what’s real and what’s not. Big nervousness out there. Even the emails that I get, frank@curzioresearch.com, keep them coming in, love it. It’s just so hard to figure out what’s really, really going on with your investments because every headline out there is crazy.

Frank Curzio: And I wanted to break down the news cycle over the past few weeks to show you exactly what I mean. And I’m someone that covers this all the time so you can weed out what’s BS and what’s not. But for average investors, retail investors, you have your jobs, you want to invest some capital work, and stocks, and stuff like that. That’s why you’re probably listening to this podcast. But when you break down that news cycle, just over the past few weeks in CBS, September 22nd, headline, “US debt default could wipe out six million jobs of 15 trillion in wealth.” They were quoting movies at the time, but US debt default? Debt default?

Frank Curzio: ABC is from October 6th, “China’s financial system could collapse from Evergrande, not default.” Wall Street Journal just a couple days ago, “Beyond Evergrande China’s property market faces $5 trillion reckoning.” Also hinted that this could start the next credit crisis, which a lot of retirees are still very familiar considering going into the credit crisis what happened? You thought you were safe, everything was secure, you have real estate. Next thing you know, your 401k’s down 40%. Your home value’s down tremendously. Think about if you’re 70 years old; you think everything’s okay, you put money away, did a great job. Now you’re like, “What do I have to go back to work?” I mean, you know how scary that is? That’s how crazy it was. I mean, right now, you’re probably like “Whatever.” But man, during the credit crisis, people see that credit crisis. That word scares the shit out of them.

Frank Curzio: October 1st, CNN, “A key major inflation surge to 30-year highs.” You’ve got the PCE deflator, they talk about unemployment, another terrible number, right? Seeking Alpha, this is from like six weeks ago, “Inflation will kill the stock market.” A lot of people go to Seeking Alpha. Be careful; anybody could write on that site. A lot of people have an agenda on that thing. Little crazy, but sometimes they have good content. I know a couple guys over there, great people. Bloomberg came out, this is September 18th century, “Alarming number of companies are warning,” right, “So, slowing profits due to higher raw material costs.” New York Times this week, talking about, “US and China enter dangerous territory over Taiwan.” China wants to control Taiwan while it’s one of the biggest… The largest supplies of chips in a world to everywhere, including the US. Financial Times a couple days ago, “US Christmas retail this crush comes as early as next week. The week after supply chains buckle up.”

Frank Curzio: And they talk about as of right now, and a lot of these things we talked about. I mean, this financial stuff warn US Christmas at retail, holy cow, it’s going to be disaster. We’re just looking back past six weeks, maybe using the words US defaults, now the global credit crisis, inflation out of control, massive supply chain issues, not even close to bottoming, politicians can’t get along to something simple like raise a debt ceiling. We all need it, right? They can’t even get together for something like that. Peak earnings, valuations of stock, trade the highest levels to credit price for a decade. I mean, outside from a few weeks ago, a little more expensive. The market pulled back in September, and yeah, we’re working our way back up now. I mean, from someone who’s in the industry and understands this, but think about you, retail investors who are not in the industry and just reading these headlines, you think the market’s set to collapse. And it could; it could collapse.

Frank Curzio: But when’s the last time you saw positive headlines? I mean, there’s no positive headlines anywhere, which kind of tells you we’re probably okay and the mark could go higher here. But these headlines, these create debt default, credit crisis. These are used on purpose, they get clicks, clicks result in more ad revenue, and that’s what drives earnings for companies like CNN, Fox, Forbes, ABC, CBS, ABC, every single media company. You have to have the headline because you’re all talking about the same stories, and there’re millions of outlets these days. So, you have to get that headline that they click. I mean, the content is meaningless unless you click the story. You have the greatest content ever, if your headline sucks that’s it. So, your headline has to be crazy, and right now, what’s selling is fear, which always sells.

Frank Curzio: Greed sells as well sometimes. But no one’s really talking about greed. “You got to get to the stock market. You’re going to make a for…” No, one’s really talking about that. They’re like, “How do you protect yourself?” That’s the headlines out there. And to be clear, every one of these risks are very serious. Not making fun of them, all the organizations, just the headlines are a little aggressive, but they’re serious risks. Inflation may not be transitory, which you talked about, Evergrande could hurt China along with the US conflict with China over Taiwan. And we know China’s what, the growth engine of the world. Supply chain issues may last into 2023. Remember what all the CEOs and auto makers are saying “That’s a second quarter of the problem,” which is last quarter, “Second quarter problem. We’re going to bottom.” Nope, haven’t bottomed.

Frank Curzio: See massive sales declines. Keep talking up your EV portfolios and no the US won’t default. If they do, you got bigger problems than investing. People will be busting into your house, robbing everything. It’d be freaking complete chaos. Again, that’s why they use a headline, but stocks are expensive. You can’t argue that, they are expensive. I mean, we have low interest rates and we have a fed that believes that we can never have a recession ever again. So, that’s pushing the market, asset prices higher.

Frank Curzio: So, you could say, “Well, 25 times 23 times public earnings is super expensive based historically,” but we’re in uncharted territory. You can’t compare this to anything, you can’t compare to injecting 12 trillion into the US market, just in the hands of consumers, which has never happened ever. 12 trillion, say this a lot, 450 billion dollars, that’s it. I say that’s it. 450 billion dollars was used to create and stabilize the system during the credit crisis. What 12 trillion? We’re talking three and a half trillion for infrastructure. “Well, we can’t agree to it, let’s do two and a half trillion. Ah, let’s do two tri…” We’re throwing around trillions like it’s nothing. It’s insane.

Frank Curzio: And yes, the common theme now, which I hear 20 times a day on all the financial media channels is to buy companies with pricing powers, and that we’ve been saying for a while. Everyone loves energy and financials all a sudden like three, four months ago, they hated them. Not really energy, last six months has been a nice energy trade an amazing energy trade. But they’re saying that because charts look great, and a lot of these guys are traders. It’s fast money as traders. “Traders, what’s the trade, what are we going to do right?” “Well, these charts look great, here you go.” And they’re right, those charts do look great. But I have to tell you with all the BS, all the headlines, all the risks out there, there’s one asset class. Do you want me to tell you how to protect yourself? There’s one asset class, just one that benefits from every one of those uncertainties and that’s Bitcoin. Look at conflict with China.

Frank Curzio: It’s not going to be good for banks, energy. Stocks are trading really at very expensive levels right now. Yes, oil prices have gone up. It doesn’t mean necessarily they’re going to have… They are going to have higher profits coming off, incredible lows. But remember, they’re being held back from drilling with the environment, and all these groups out there on the board now and carbon credits and all this stuff. So, you’re not going to see the same profits they had at $*8 for oil five years ago as they are now. These are great trade. Yeah, the charts look good it’s probably going to go higher.

Frank Curzio: I wouldn’t say pour all your money into energy right now at these levels. When I look at Bitcoin, it’s a great plan on inflation as we’ve seen, the fixed amount of supply or coins. It’s a great plan on reckless government spending because the government can’t really touch it. They can, they’re trying, but they’re not going to regulate. And they can’t regulate it right now here. They can’t ban crypto. They can’t ban Bitcoin. And maybe some crypto issues, and say, a lot of these are securities, which is, I think will happen eventually, which is great for security tokens, because they’re doing it the right way like we are.

Frank Curzio: I mean, China is a reason why China just banned crypto… What is it, Bitcoin, crypto six times this year alone, can’t get your money out. I wonder why; it’s a little crazy there. Nobody’s going to move the money. Nope. Make sure, now we’re controlling the banks everything. They’ll probably announce next week, they’re going to ban it again. And maybe Bitcoin falls, it’s going to be a buying opportunity. But you’re going to see more Evergrande issues pop up in China. You see other countries like El Salvador adopt it. I mean El Salvador is taking Bitcoin as legal tender. And this wasn’t something that was just passed by a bunch of crazy people. They have something called the legislative assembly, which has 84 members, 62 of those voted this through. That’s a massive amount and that passed on September 7th. You’re going to see more of this.

Frank Curzio: I know some of you thinking “This is some crazy trend and Bitcoin, I don’t know. It’s too speculative. Jamie Dimon says Bitcoin has no intrinsic value.” So many people coming out, Bitcoin’s going to zero. These are mostly gold bugs. Peter Schiff thinks it’s coming to zero and going to zero and zero, zero, zero for the last 10 years. I’ve been saying that and this thing’s been going higher and higher and higher. And you’re losing your case, and your reputations by saying that gold’s a better play. You should be in both. I’m in both. Gold’s been doing crappy for a while, but uranium was doing crappy for a while too. I think you’ll have a day in the sun when people looking for, “Hey, this is a good value here. Just like uranium.” And you’re going to see hedge funds pouring into this thing. I think you’ll see that with gold.

Frank Curzio: But man, you just say, Bitcoin’s going to zero. You’ve been hearing about this, right? So, you think it’s some crazy trend. But for someone like me, that’s been engulfed in this industry, knows it very well, some of the best contacts in this field, I’ve interviewed leaders in this space, we are in the very early stages of growth when it comes to crypto. Like, compare it to the internet like the mid-1990s, and you’re going to see massive growth coming from different areas. Now, what do we have in 2017? It was like the wild, wild west out there. Kids are raising 25 billion for stupid projects that seem like good ideas, storage on the blockchain, which we really don’t need, it’s not a necessity. People feel like a lot of their documents are protected. Yes we see breaches here and there, but not to the point where I have to use your token in order to provide safety on your blockchain. No, your Pizza Coin, Selfiecoin, Dogecoin.

Frank Curzio: You look at those projects. They’re only tied to the coin, the crypto as a utility. There’s no value in it, it doesn’t matter about profits. It’s how you could use that token. If you could use a token, that’s a utility, then the value’s going to go up because you’re taking supply off the market. You’re having people own it and using it for different things. If I have no utility it’s worthless, and most of these companies, even today, they don’t have a lot of utilities for the token, which basically makes that coin worthless. And we saw that, 2017 big crash. It came back, ups and downs kind of like what we saw with the internet. When it comes to uses, look at FinanceCoin and that could be used to lower your trading fees on that platform. Management burns tokens pretty much every quarter, I believe. They can be used by numerous things, book flights, that makes it valuable. This coin alone is up, I think it’s up 25 to 27X for us in our Crypto Intelligence portfolio, 27X, and it’s over like 32 months.

Frank Curzio: And we did see a lot of crappy produced in this space. And then what the market crashed in 2018, we had our ups and downs in 2019, 2020. When we look at today, it’s not easy to launch these BS projects anymore. Everybody’s watching, you’re not seeing tons of ICOs. The ones that do come out are backed by big venture funds, hedge funds, Anderson Horowitz, Pantera Capital, NGC Ventures, even Fidelity, Bank Capital, Tiger Global. It’s kind of investing in some of the biggest projects, which are now billion dollar companies like Block Fund. For most of these projects come out, they’re raising 20 million plus, have really great technology, and they have good backers.

Frank Curzio: And they’re raising this because the trends inside crypto right now are absolutely incredible. And you’re looking at the growth potential here, again you saw the growth potential during the internet boom in the mid-1990s, that was a long time ago. Maybe people listening to us don’t understand. These are when companies just figured out, “Holy cow, we need a website.” They’re launching their web websites, one page two page. Well, we should get a couple more pages. Wow. It should be a link here. It was massive, this is all new, domain companies were jockeying for position. 1994, Amazon came out and said, “Hey, we have a way to disrupt how you purchase and read books.” That’s what Amazon was all about back then. And it was huge, it was revolutionary, and they continue to innovate and we know where they are now. The Palm Pilot was the most amazing thing, which eventually led to the smartphone.

Frank Curzio: They didn’t innovate too well. 1998 was when Google was founded. It’s not that long ago. Well, maybe you could say it I’m getting older, but that was 1998. I remember when that company IPOed, nobody wanted it. It was like, I think it like 80 bucks or something. Nobody wanted Google when it came out when it IPOed, nobody wanted it. But this was when search engines were popping up everywhere since there was no direction, we needed something that helped navigate this massive universe we were just learning about. It took a long time for people to get emails to scale where people had emails, where they were using bank accounts and online banking and trading online and stuff. This is even before that, it took a while. Now it’s normal, and no matter how old you are, that’s the curve, and you’re learning all this stuff. That’s what we want crypto right now. And the early stage trends that have the potential to disrupt the world, I’ll name it for you. One of them is DeFi. It’s been doing well, lot of stocks or cryptos within that space. DeFi stands for decentralized finance.

Frank Curzio: If you look at Wall Street, a place, I worked all my life with a few places where we didn’t see tons of disruption where the internet alone changed games in terms of eliminating the middleman, paying unnecessary fees. You look at Wall Street firms they charge a fortune for what? For their services? They’re bringing these large investors into new ideas. They underwrite the companies and they bring them public, get a handsome fee, along with likely shares of that company. Then what? They sell the issue to their clients, make massive trading fees as their clients continue to trade their security over whatever time period. It’s a perfect business model, but it’s fees on top of fees on top of fees.

Frank Curzio: And you say, “Well, you know what? Maybe that’s not that big of a deal. And you don’t see the behind the scenes stuff like how disruptive can this technology be?” Look at Robinhood and giving young investors a platform to trade on even cryptos instead of never, ever 99% of these people never ever being able to be part of that Goldman Morgan Stanley boys club. The way money is transferred. I mean, even from banks or wires are still $34, whatever it is, international it’s more. Other ways to do is seamlessly using crypto with super low transactions when middlemen don’t rob you, and collect those fees. And so, you may not think that’s a big deal, but I want you to do me a favor. Next time you’re at Starbucks, go to Starbucks, a lot of people have the app pay for your coffee using Bitcoin. It may require you to sign up. I think they have Bakkt, which is their app. And you can put Bitcoin in the wallet, probably take less than 10 minutes to sign up and transfer Bitcoin to that account.

Frank Curzio: But once you pay, take a look at the receipt, because it’s going to say zero transaction fees. Because when you use a credit card, that extra fee is up to three and a half percent, two and a half, 3%. For most companies, you may charge to my company. We do transactions online, which is our business. Every time you do transactions that they take a piece of it, that’s a massive, massive percentage when it comes to margins, when it comes to profit it’s massive. You want to find a way to increase your profits, 3%’s a big deal. So, when you look at numbers, there are hundreds of billions. I checked this out, did a little research, hundreds of billions of transactions may use in credit cards all over the globe. This results in consumers spending 18 trillion annually to buy their favorite stuff.

Frank Curzio: And that’s all together. So, around five trillion of this is through credit cards. So again, including hundreds of billion transactions every year, which credit card firms make 51 billion dollars last year in transaction fees, I’m not talking about interest fees, other credit cards. That was another 76 billion. I’m not talking about that. This is just transaction fees. If you want to put that 51 billion perspective, marijuana an industry, massive growth trend, everyone loves to invest in legalizing and state by state continue all of around where medicinal’s almost legal, I won’t say everywhere in every state, but what is it? I mean more and more states for recreational use are approving marijuana. It’s great. You got all these… Combined cannabis sales totaled 17 and a half billion last year in the US. You think that’s a massive trend? Again credit card firms made 51 billion dollars in these transaction fees. There’s a way to avoid that. There’s a reason why MasterCard, visa, PayPal, Square. Why do you think they’re investing in Bitcoin? They have to, they have no choice. That’s where we’re going.

Frank Curzio: And there’s just one small thing inside the massive DeFi five mega trend where we use crypto. To what? To eliminate the middlemen who really do not create anything or make anything. I mean, they make products like CDOs, mortgage back securities to generate even more money for themselves. But the whole world’s about eliminating the middleman, and that’s how you increase margins. And that’s how you provide the end use, where you want to disrupt markets, it’s got to be a better experience, and a better experience means paying less money for the things that you do. Makes the cost go down for you the customer. NFTs, nonfungible tokens, is another massive trend. This is like digital art, massive, massive market. But a lot of this will be crap, and it is crap that’s coming out, just like most cryptos are crap in 2017, but there’s tons of value buying something original that’s on the internet from Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Wayne Gretzky, famous artists, celebrities. There’s massive demand for that.

Frank Curzio: Crypto, that’s a backbone for this technology. Whether it’s Ethereum or other ways and other blockchain, other ways you get smart contracts and I won’t want to go into it because some of those are in our portfolios, massive trend. And then we have the biggest trend of all, security tokens, tokenization. So, what we did here launching our Curzio Equity Owners token, now we’re seeing this industry explode, tokenization of art, where anyone can own a piece of something or some of the best art pieces of a drawing. You can own commercial real estate, a piece of commercial real estate, big bonds or instruments that pay interest, high fixed interest. But you’re seeing this market’s going to explode. It’s starting to explode. We’re seeing it. If you don’t believe me, if you think I’m talking my book here, just type security token news in Google, and then hit the news link, and see for yourself what’s been going on. Just go back the last two months, last few weeks. The news in this is absolutely incredible.

Frank Curzio: Why am I bringing this up right now? You have all these risks and stuff and everyone’s going crazy. But when it comes to cryptos, it’s the one market where I’ve seen the greatest gains in my life. I’ll even go in further. I mean, I’ve never seen any asset class in close to 30 years I’ve been doing this have the potential, offer retail investors, retail investors, 10X to 50X returns, which is game changing. Though it’s life changing when you see gains like that, even if it’s simple from a couple thousand dollar investment.

Frank Curzio: Now, not cherry picking and saying, “Oh, well look at the people invested in a Netflix or Microsoft early, good for you.” No, there’s lots of great names in this space that offer massive upside. Is there risk? Yes. There’s a lot of risk. There’s risk in every investment. I’m going to sit here oh, highlight all the great things that are going to happen and say, listen, when we first started this portfolio, a lot these things down 50, 60%. We had small positions in them, and we added to these positions. Two of those are up 20X plus now. Again, in about 30-month period. Okay. You got to be smart, it’s volatile. You saw just the past 45 days bitcoin go to 65,000 to 39,000.

Frank Curzio: They’re back up now out to 55,000. I think it tested 40 again. I mean, you’re seeing the crazy volatility. Is it risky, yes, but the key is, is to reward worth the risk? I don’t know. You decide. For our Crypto Intelligence portfolio, right now, you’re going to see a 27X gain, a 23X gain, a 15X gain, a 10X gain. Six more names that are up between 250 and 950%. Again, these gains are made mostly inside 30 months, some inside six months. And our last five recommendations are still below up by up to price, and all of them have amazing upside potential because they’re in mega trends, like the metaverse. If you don’t know the metaverse by now, went over it a couple times, sit down, grab a cup of coffee, tea, whatever you drink, and be ready to sit there for three hours as your mind explodes.

Frank Curzio: It’s incredible, it’s exciting, it’s fun, it’s where Facebook one of the large companies in the world, two billion plus users said, “That’s going to be our company in five years, DeFi, mining for cryptos?” And these guys mine for cryptos, you got to figure out solution, whole mathematical problem. But a lot of these guys carry Bitcoin on the balance sheet, and look where Bitcoin’s going? AI, different kinds of trading technology, you can take advantages of all the different exchanges and find the best price. We use some of the issues in a portfolio now, the last five.

Frank Curzio: But for me as a publisher, that wants to make you money that’s how I get paid, right? I mean, if I’m not doing a good job for you guys, you guys can’t… I don’t get paid by the companies that I recommend, none of them. They don’t pay me. I invest in some of them next to you guys, buy them after you, most of them. Just sometimes I’m in issues very, very early, where I might be at private placement. And if that thing goes a little bit higher, whatever, and I feel like there’s a massive potential I’ll recommend it. I’m not selling these things. I’m on them long-term.

Frank Curzio: That was probably full disclosures. If someone that cares about the customer, right? And yes, while you make money, what does that mean? It means you’re going to subscribe to more and more and more products. And that’s what most of our subscribers have done. Some of you aren’t subscribers, but when you become a subscriber of one product, almost every one of you wind up owning numerous products because you know our research is great, our content is great, and our analysts are great. They have to be great. If not, it’s my job to get rid of them and put someone in there that’s going to do their job. Everybody has to be held accountable.

Frank Curzio: But as a publisher, looking at this crypto by far offers the best risk-reward you’ll ever, ever see as a retail investor. Why is that? Because it’s all about idea generation. In the time ideas get to you as a retail investor, the growth, a lot of that growth already took place. Whether it’s Snowflake, whether it’s Coinbase, Robinhood, Palantir, and these names come to you when you could first trade on multibillion dollar valuations. Whether it’s SPACs, which I know you think, “Wow, 10, 11, 12, 13, this sounds great.” The insiders are in these names at two, three, $4. They love selling this to you at 12, 13. That’s where you’re buying them. You’re buying them at the same valuations. And just look at all the SPAC, just pick whatever SPAC you want, whatever. And some of them worked out, but most of them are not working out anymore. Because everybody went crazy, and they know they could generate fees, and give you warrants and give you all this crap, or get themselves warrants to get out early.

Frank Curzio: But if you look at the valuation of the companies that they’ve taken over… Look at those valuations, it won’t be difficult to find because they did capital raises and then they disclose it, you’re going to see a billion dollar, maybe probably 700 billion dollars two months before they merge with a SPAC. When they merge SPACs, it’s a three, four billion dollar valuation. It’s horse shit, that’s where they want you to buy this. That works until it doesn’t work anymore, until the retail investors get killed and say, “I’m not buying this garbage anymore.” That lasted about a year and a half. Not seeing lots of SPACs out there now.

Frank Curzio: But one market we have a clear advantage over Wall Street and so many green institutions: It’s crypto. Is there a learning and curve? A little bit, but get started on Coinbase. Open up an account on BlockFi, Gemini, buy a little Bitcoin, transfer a little money there. These sites are secure, they’re good. And for us, we provide videos exactly how to open accounts on almost every crypto platform that you could trade as a US investor, how to buy new recommendations, what price to pay, how much percentage to put into each one. And we include all of that in our Crypto Intelligence newsletter. But as Bitcoin goes higher, guys, and this is the big thing, which I think is inevitable because you’re see worldwide adoption, different countries. 55% of the largest banks are now integrating with crypto. Again, more and more countries adopting Bitcoin as a means of payment. There’s limited supply. We’re going to see many, many, many of these names explode, especially inside DeFi, NFTs, and really, really in security tokens.

Frank Curzio: And that’s going to give you the opportunity to invest on the ground floor of these names. Something you can’t do as a retail investor, you can’t do that anymore. I’m not saying, just go in blindly. There’s a lot risk, but the amount of risk you’re taking compared to the reward you’re going to get. I mean, think about an ESG company. If it works out, you’re getting 3X, 4X gains, and then you see 50, 70% retracements now. And you look at crypto where, you could maximize that potentially even more. And yes, you might be taking on the same risk as some of these names, but your goal, it’s all about risk-reward. If you could take on the same amount of risk, but your reward is increased by a factor of 3X, 4X, 10X, what are you going to do? Again, I’m someone who’s been covering this stuff for a long, long time.

Frank Curzio: It’s giving an opportunity to have massive returns, and this is still very, very early in the growth cycle. We’ve put a lot of this information on cryptos, on the industry, security tokens on our website, curzioresearch.com. Do your own due diligence as well; there’s a lot of other great sites out there. But if you’re not familiar with this trend, if you’re not in it yet, maybe you’re just too stubborn to learn something new or get in it. Maybe you feel like you’re already missed out in the big moves. Do me a favor, take the dive. Start with just a little bit of capital and see where it goes. Find a couple people that are great in the industry that you can listen to. There’s a lot of garbage out there and pump and dump schemes with what they called shit coins.

Frank Curzio: But the upside potential in this industry is incredible. It’s nothing I’ve ever seen in my entire career. If you’re listening to this podcast for the first time or just the past couple weeks, I’ve been doing this for 14 years. This podcast 14 years; incredible. And now, everybody has podcast now. 14 years. But if you’re just listening, you might say, “Hey, this guy’s pitching a load of crap right now.” Like I said, I did it personally. I based my entire company reputation on this trend, turning our company into a digital security. Curzio Research, it has my name on the door. When it first hit the world, we be publicly traded, which is going to soon be trading on a large security token platform in the world based on volume, that’s tZERO. This is someone that’s did it. I’m not saying, “Hey, you should do this and invest in this,” and I’m not investing in it, which we see a lot in the publishing industry. “This stocks going to go up 30X. I can’t buy it, but it’s going to go up 30X for you.”

Frank Curzio: Really, you’re not going to buy it for yourself, for your family, if you really think it’s going up 30X. Because a lot of these going to the rules and compliance that they use, and because a lot of these firms are big in our industry, they don’t want their editors investing in the securities that they’re recommending. I don’t know, to me, that sounds a little crazy. If you really think something will go to 20X, 30X, you’re not going to recommend it for yourself, you’re going to recommend it for everybody else? For most of these people on your list that you don’t know? Think about that for a minute.

Frank Curzio: I base my company on this trend. I’m excited about it. The news is amazing. The access we’re going to have to this industry. I can’t tell you how many companies are contacting us to talk about it, how to get this going, which are going to offer… I mean, CCI investors, our investors, again that’s Crypto Intelligence, we call it CCI, but the access are you going to have in this industry’s incredible. It’s going to be awesome. I’m getting tons of requests to subscribe to Crypto Intelligence. Don’t subscribe yet through our website. Are you going to pay a full price? So, we’re trying to come out something special and send you a special discount only for podcast members, members are ready and on our site, at Curzio Research.

Frank Curzio: But if you’re interested, there’s going to be the opportunity to subscribe at the lowest price possible. I’m also going to show you my entire portfolio, not cherry picking: The entire thing. I’m not going to show the names, obviously. I’m protecting people that have paid a lot of money for this newsletter. But the gains, losses, buy up to price, percent you should own, which is anywhere from 2% to 6% in exception, one stock to 8%. That’s usually a position sizing, which is extremely, extremely important. If you don’t follow that, I would tell you don’t even subscribe to the newsletter, because you’re going to get wrecked taking full positions… Because a lot of volatility you take advantage by taking small positions.

Frank Curzio: But again, even if you’re not interested to subscribe and start, please do me a favor and start learning about this incredible industry because it’s still in very early stages. It’s the beginning. It’s where the most innovation is coming from. It’s one of the few places, if not the only place that I know of, where retail investors get the chance to invest in grow companies near the ground floor. That includes our CEO token, Curzio Equity Owners token. We’re a small company in a highly competitive industry. Maybe I fail. Maybe this doesn’t work. However, if we do grow this into a multi-billion dollar enterprise, investors will make an absolute fortune, since you can invest in our CEO token near the ground floor of our business and something you can’t do anymore as a retail investor with SPACs and new IPOs coming out billion dollar all, plus valuations, crazy expensive.

Frank Curzio: And again, when you’re buying these names, the insiders are happy to dump that stock on you, but security tokens, man, definitely different. And this market is on fire right now. We’re close to four billion worth of issuances in the pipeline. According to our friends, Security Token Advisors, who track this industry, great guys, four billion right now in the pipelines worth of issuances, just in security tokens. Industry is here, you have the chance to take a huge advantage of it. You have any questions, comments, you can send it to me at frank@curzioresearch.com. I usually take questions in this segment, but I like to keep them to around 30 minutes. So, I’ll take questions later in the week. Maybe tomorrow, maybe Thursday, we’ll see, but send in your questions, frank@curzioresearch.com, especially on crypto, for the best places to go, where you get great information. Again, you can find a lot of this stuff on our website at curzioresearch.com.

Frank Curzio: So guys, that’s it for me. Questions and comments; I’m here for you. I’m not going to give you my email address again and say it for the 10th time. But seriously, if you want send me emails, I’ll do everything I can to help you out to get you in this. Even if you don’t subscribe to a newsletter, if you find any other places someone’s been doing this for a very long time, we have great, great contacts. People have been helping me, sending me research. It’s easy to get caught in the wrong places in this industry, invest in garbage stuff. That’s not what we’re doing in our portfolio. And we’re making massive gains investing in really, really good cryptos, not BS cryptos, not pump and dump scams, which you’re seeing out there.

Frank Curzio: So, make sure you find a few people that you can actually trust in this industry, and you trust by following them over a period of time. And trust me, I mean, in terms of the gains that you can make are incredible. And there is risk just like in every other investment, but the reward is much, much higher than you’ll see any place they could possibly invest in as a retail investor. So, I really appreciate all the support. I’ll see you guys tomorrow. Take care.
