The selloff in cryptocurrencies continues today with bitcoin now falling below $2,000 to a low of $1,841 after hitting its all time high of $3,108.54 on June 11th, marking a 41% drop in the last five weeks.
And there were massive profits!
Those who bought when we recommended buying bitcoin at $3 in 2011 made a 100,000% gain when bitcoin peaked over $3,000. And those who bought Ethereum at $2 in 2016 when we recommended it, made a 20,000% gain when Ethereum hit $400.
A pullback of about 50% in the cryptocurrencies here is very healthy… and very needed. Even at today’s levels, if you had bought a basket of all the cryptocurrencies a year ago, you’d still be up 400% in the last year.
A look at the all time chart for all cryptocurrencies shows that this is just a reasonable pullback after such a massive runup.
I said numerous times in the last few months how shocked I was at how high many cryptos like Ethereum rose.
I was not expecting this kind of market interest in the cryptos this quickly. I was expecting it maybe a year from now, but not now.
And so this major move higher has shown the market interest and demand for cryptocurrencies. As I’ve said numerous times in the past, the cryptocurrency (r)evolution is the biggest thing to happen since the invention of the internet.
It changes absolutely everything. Bitcoin has already changed the world of money and banking. Ethereum has already changed how decentralized applications and smart contracts work. Steem has already changed social media. And we are JUST getting started!
For those who missed the massive runup in the last year you have just been given your second chance by the market!
Is this the bottom? Possibly. Although we could see a rebound and one more leg down before the next bull move. But, while I stopped recommending buying cryptocurrencies a month ago and advised subscribers to sell them… I am now thinking it has dropped enough to start wading back in.
I’ll advise subscribers to The Dollar Vigilante newsletter (subscribe here) exactly what to do in our next issue coming out this week. They should be very cashed up after taking profits at the peak and ready to reinvest at much lower levels!
And yesterday, I just told subscribers which cryptocurrency I think can overthrow Ethereum. It is trading below $2, just like Ethereum was when I recommended it last year, and I think it could surpass Ethereum in the next 1-2 years… which would mean at least a 5,000% gain from here.

And, at 5:30pm, right after my speech, we’ll have a free and informal Dollar Vigilante meetup for anyone who’d like to drop by at the Beer Park bar at the top of the Paris Hotel.
I’ll look forward to seeing many of you there.
