Early-Stage Investors Are Betting on Blockchain
When picking investments, you should always follow the money.
You can read all of the financial statements in the world. But if no one else is investing, it’ll be hard to make money.
I use several indicators that track money flow. And right now, they’re telling me the same thing…
Blockchain is the place to invest in right now.
Blockchain Is the Future
Early-stage investors are betting that blockchain is the future.
Funding for private blockchain companies surpassed $25 billion in 2021.
That’s up over 700% from the previous year.

One of the leading investment firms last year, Andreessen Horowitz, has struck HUGE wins in the past.
It was an early-stage investor in companies like Airbnb, Coinbase and Facebook, to name a few.
These companies were unknown to many at the time. But they went on to become tech heavyweights and household names.
Now Andreessen Horowitz appears to be shifting its investment focus.
The firm invested in 46 blockchain companies in 2021.
In June 2021, it even invested in Solana, a crypto that Ian King recommended six months beforehand to his Next Wave Crypto Fortunes subscribers.
That pick handed his subscribers massive gains.
They closed out half their Solana position for a 1,934% gain in five months.
The rest is still riding and is up several times more than that.
How to Get Into Blockchain on the Ground Floor
As you can see, the reward potential in the blockchain industry is huge.
This is why firms like Andreessen Horowitz are doubling down on blockchain companies.
Plus, its decision to invest now indicates that blockchain adoption is still early.
If you want to get into blockchain on the ground floor, consider buying cryptos.
Crypto only has about 300 million users now, meaning less than 4% of the world is invested.
But the number of users is climbing quickly.
Several forecasts have global users at 1 billion by the end of this year.
And Ian says one crypto is about to shake up the entire financial industry. (It’s not bitcoin.)
This crypto is positioned to stage a historic rally at any moment.
So you’ll definitely want to watch Ian’s special presentation about it this Thursday.
