In this report, I attempt to classify the best-performing altcoins within one of seven market capitalization levels. These capitalization levels are based on traditional stock market capitalization levels and then adjusted for the cryptocurrency market.

The cryptocurrency market covers much more breadth than the traditional markets, especially at the lower capitalization levels so additional levels have been included in this report - including the best performing cryptocurrencies within the micro and nano market capitalization levels.

Mega Market Capitalization >$200 Billion

The cryptocurrencies which make this level are the top-ranking cryptocurrencies, with a market capitalization of excess of $200 billion.

At the time of writing, only…


This 12-year-old doesn’t have a bank account but has earned +$400k in two months from creating & selling NFT’s.

In July of this year, a 12-year-old launched his own NFT collection and within nine hours the collection was sold out.

He made over 80 Ethereum (~$310,000) on the sale of the tokens and then a further 30 Ethereum on the resale earnings of his NFT’s — yes, he even earns a royalty on the resale of the NFT’s.

With today’s price of Ethereum, that is well over $400,000 for just 2 month’s worth of work. Impressive!

If the past is an indicator of the future (and it seems to be), here is what would need to happen to make it possible.

It’s hard to believe, but Bitcoin is only 11 years old.

Ethereum is only 6 years old.

In this short period of time, a multi-trillion-dollar industry has been created.

As a consequence, this industry has also likely created the greatest explosion of millionaires and multi-millionaires the world has ever seen.

In the next few minutes, I’ll show you how small investments in this industry could yield extraordinary returns — Including the ability to retire from Crypto.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying investing in the cryptocurrency market is an alternative to traditional retirement planning. …


NFT & Blockchain gaming are replacing traditional jobs

I recently came across an article of a 31-year-old in the Philipines who gave up his job selling rice feed to poultry farmers for a job playing a blockchain-based game on his smartphone.

According to this interview, the 31-year-old only plays an hour a day and is now earning about $2,000 per month — about double what he was earning selling rice.

This is a feel-good story of a young man who was struggling to make ends meet while trying to take care of his 82-year old grandmother. …


If you haven’t logged into your exchange account for a while, you may be in for a nasty surprise.

Unclaimed property may not be a term you are familiar with, but if you haven't logged into your crypto exchange account for a while — you may unfortunately become very familiar with it.

If you have left (or forgot) your crypto on an exchange for an extended period of time, your wallet may be deactivated and your cryptocurrency funds liquidated. This isn’t hearsay, it almost happened to me.

Just the other day I woke up to a rather disturbing email titled — Notify about deleting Account.

How a small surfing town has become bitcoin’s biggest social experiment.

El Salvador is making waves.

This is the first country in the world to declare Bitcoin as Legal Tender.

It may also be home to the first town with a fully supported bitcoin economy.


Praslin, the second-largest island of the Republic of Seychelles (Source: Wiki)

Lower taxation and increased privacy are two of the many reasons I incorporated my crypto businesses in Seychelles.

While living in South Africa during the late 90s, I first became acquainted with the tropical islands of Seychelles.

Mostly known as a popular tourist destination, this small island nation is located 1,500km (932mi) off the eastern coastline of the African continent and consists of over 115 small islands; officially referred to as the Republic of Seychelles.


100% Legitimate & Worthless (Source: Wiki)

This is a legitimate hundred trillion dollar banknote — It’s also worthless.

Please excuse the overly dramatic use of zeros in the title, but I feel it’s necessary. Count them — that is FOURTEEN ZEROS behind the one.

This is an authentic banknote.

This is also recent history (2008).

Today, this banknote is not worth the paper it’s printed on.

In fact, if you would like your very own authenticate $100 trillion dollar banknote, you can pick the real thing up on eBay for a few bucks plus shipping. These banknotes are now sold as novelty and collector items.

If you thought your cryptocurrency transactions were anonymous or private, you were wrong.

In 1948 George Orwell penned a novel about a dystopian future. A future with continuous war, doublespeak, propaganda and omnipresent government surveillance.

The story took place 36 years into an imagined future — in the year 1984.

Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984)

In its own right, nineteen eighty-four is a literary classic. This novel introduced the public (at large) to the concept of pre-crime, with terms like thoughtcrime and thought police.

Welcome to the Blackjack year - 2021 is not even half over and it’s already been an incredible ride.

On April 14th, Bitcoin reached its all-time high of $64,863.

Almost a month later on May 11th, cryptocurrency market capitalization reached an all-time high that exceeded 2.5 trillion dollars — Not bad for an industry that has only been around for 11 years.

In the first few months of 2021, a lot of wealth was created in the crypto market and in the few months following these all-time highs, the market has fallen almost 50%.

Although high volatility in the cryptocurrency…
