My Wife Thinks I’m Cheating…

by Teeka Tiwari, International Man:

“Are you cheating on me?”

It’s 1 o’clock in the morning. I’ve been awake for 40 hours.

I just got off the plane from Berlin this afternoon. And I’ve been on nonstop Skype calls since coming home.

I had just wrapped up a video call with one of my Chinese cryptocurrency contacts when my wife confronted me with her suspicions.

I can’t blame her for being anxious. She’s barely seen me since early June...

Over the last six weeks, I’ve crossed six time zones. I’ve visited six cities on two continents.

“Honey, I don’t have the energy for another woman,” I joked.

She’s not amused. And she’s not the only one...

In all my years on Wall Street, I never missed my children’s birthdays. This year, I missed two of them.

Why would I be willing to risk the ire of not one, but three women? (Two of my daughters still live at home.)

That’s because it’s been 22 years since I’ve seen a bull market like the one we’re in now with cryptocurrencies.

I can’t overstate how profound this is...

I won’t blame you if you think bitcoin is just a fad.

Why would you put your trust in a digital construct like bitcoin? On the surface, it seems like madness. It flies in the face of sensible wealth building.

But consider this... Bitcoin is now eight years old. That’s three years older than the internet bubble. It’s outlived the real estate bubble... the financial crisis... and is now worth over $97 billion.

It’s up over 523% this year alone. So far, it’s outpaced the run-up in stocks, bonds, gold, and silver, by far.

Has the whole world gone mad? Is this just a “hyper” bubble?

We’re Not in a “Normal” World

I understand your reservations about cryptocurrencies like bitcoin...

In a “normal” world, I’d tell you bitcoin is a dumb idea. In a “normal” world, bitcoin would be nothing more than a geek-centric curiosity.

But we do not live in a normal world anymore...

That’s why I’m writing to you now. I want to show you why cryptocurrencies belong in everyone’s wealth-building plan.

We can thank the relentless power grab by the world’s governments and central banks for making bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies a viable financial product.

Let me explain...

As governments impose their will on the population... people will use digital currencies like bitcoin to win back their freedom of choice.

Whether it’s the loss of financial privacy... the devaluation of paper money... capital controls in China and elsewhere... or government-sponsored payment bans... digital currencies like bitcoin are stepping in to bridge the gap between what the people want... and what governments will “let” them have.

That’s why bitcoin is up over 523% this year. It meets a need that no other conventional asset can: freedom and anonymity.

As governments seek more and more control, they’re actually creating a bigger and bigger market for bitcoin and other digital currencies.

As we see governments trample citizens’ rights even further, it will be cryptocurrencies that step in to give us our freedom back.

I’ll leave you with this thought...

If you are a lover of personal freedom, then you owe it to yourself to get educated on how digital currencies can liberate you from the limitations, onerous fees, and stifling government regulation of our current payment systems.
