Neil here.

This week’s news has been more than enough to make your head spin.

In the 24 hours or so since we last spoke, GameStop (GME) hit an all-time high and quickly dipped again, Wall Street had its worst day in three months, and Apple (AAPL) posted a record $111.4 billion in quarterly earnings.

All of this news came while Robinhood barred trading on GME and other popular stocks (AMC, Blackberry, and Nokia) and the Biden administration announced that it’s “monitoring the situation” on the market this week.

Despite all of the chaos and volatility, people around the country are still making lifechanging amounts of money this week. One Reddit user who bought into GME over a year ago claimed he turned his initial $50,000 stake into over $22 million. I’ve seen other reports putting that number closer to $50 million as of today.

It’s absolute insanity. And no matter what happens with the GME short squeeze, whether it ends this week or lasts a little while longer, it points to a larger movement that’s been building for a long time:

That smaller, everyday investors are tired of being shut out of massive wealth-building opportunities by ultra-rich, big-name institutions.

I’ve seen it firsthand in the angel investing world. That’s the whole reason why this community exists – to bring you closer to private equity deals that have traditionally lined the pockets of high society.

Some of the most powerful names in venture capital have noticed this movement, too.

Galaxy Digital CEO Mike Novogratz, for example, has predicted that this week’s GME rally is a massive endorsement of another market trend that’s getting ready to bounce back into the spotlight very soon.

I’m talking about cryptocurrency, which just hit a $1 trillion market cap for the very first time in history this month.

Novogratz runs the VC firm Galaxy Investment Partners, which focuses on investments into cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.

On Wednesday morning, Novogratz tweeted that the “GME squeeze is deeper than a squeeze.” It’s a movement made up of everyday people who don’t want to play a system that benefits the already rich, and who don’t want to answer to the establishment.

In essence, it’s a movement that completely validates the need for a decentralized finance (DeFi) system… a system dominated by cryptocurrency.

To me, this makes sense. DeFi is about as anti-establishment as it gets in the financial world.

Cryptocurrencies don’t rely on regulations by banks and central financial authorities. Instead, they run on a decentralized system that records all transactions in a shared, public blockchain ledger.

The biggest advocates of cryptocurrency love it because it’s transparent, it’s secure, and it essentially eliminates the need for “middlemen” like banks and other institutions.

If these venture capital predictions are correct (and I have no trouble believing they are), short squeezes like this will only launch cryptocurrency further into the spotlight at unprecedented levels.

Since this time last year, BTC has gained almost 250%. While it has dipped from its New Year high of $42,000, top crypto traders are predicting that it will spike once again through 2021.

Tom Gentile is even predicting that it will hit $50,000 by the end of the year. Based on his 95%-win rate in the crypto space since December 2019, I’m inclined to agree with him.

But to be completely honest, there are many more cryptocurrency options out there with the potential to be even more profitable than BTC… and many don’t require the same massive buy-in to start playing them.

Over the next 12 months, Tom is guaranteeing that he’ll secure at least 12 of these different crypto recommendations that could beat BTC by at least 300% in each of their trades.

He’s getting you started with three of his top picks right now… so click here to check them out right away.

(You’ll definitely want all the details before crypto potentially jumps back up again.)

I’ll be back soon with another update.

Until next time,
