There are two types of stock bubbles – normal stock bubbles of five years or so and shorter-term, more extreme bubbles – and we’re currently in the midst of both kinds.

A complete break from any fundamentals.
Let’s compare the cryptocurrency bubble to five other quick-and-nasty bubbles that have wiped out investors in the past.

The thing with this Bitcoin bubble – and all the bubbles, stock and short-term alike, that have come before it – is that it ultimately results in a shakeout. It destroys all the flotsam and jetsam lurking in the market in question. And it presents once-in-a-lifetime wealth-building opportunities.
Take Amazon for example. During the dot.com boom, it went to $113 per share. Then the crash brought it tumbling down to just $5.50 a share – down 95 percent. It survived though, and today one share goes for more than $1,300. That’s a 240 times gain!
The same kinds of opportunities will present themselves once this crypto bubble has burst. We believe one cryptocurrency, in particular, is in a good place to survive the shakeout ahead. Think of it as the Amazon of the cryptocurrency world.
