On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.” – Peter Steiner On the blockchain, nobody knows you’re a fridge.” – Richard Gendal Brown Blockchain technology has been called the greatest innovation since the internet. Governments and companies are rushing to implement blockchain technology in a range of areas that could impact every person on the planet within a few years.

At the heart of this lie cryptocurrencies, a technology with the transformative potential of the printing press or the internet. They bypass the elites and cut out the gatekeepers. Unlike traditional money they’re peer-to-peer, they don’t have a nationality, they’re digital and democratic. They are also lawless.
For the Afghani woman denied a bank account by a repressive society, or any of the world’s 2.5 billion unbanked individuals, cryptocurrencies open new possibilities. What would a world without banks or credit cards or even national currencies look like for all of us?

“If only I’d bought back then”
Sound familiar? It probably does. Because when it comes to cryptocurrency, there are so many “if only” or “the one that got away” stories.
7 years ago you could’ve bought 1 Bitcoin for just 10 cents.
That same Bitcoin is worth over $7000 today.
100 dollars invested in 2010 would be worth over 7 million dollars today!
But now you have an opportunity that’s far from typical.
It’s an opportunity to buy 12 cryptocurrencies with huge potential, while their prices are under $1.
An opportunity to buy like an “insider” – with significant early adopter advantages.
An opportunity to experience your own huge Bitcoin-like returns!
