“Crypto as it started building out as an ecosystem, […] is now the fastest adoption of any technology in all recorded human history.” [7:42]

“If you know that something is being adopted at this speed, and it’s a network of money at its core, and you combined infinitesimal fraction of it, so everybody can buy 10% of their net worth, then everybody who takes this opportunity will probably have the biggest opportunity in history to make money.” [10:11]

“I’m screaming from the rooftops saying, you might be cynical, you might think you don’t understand it. You might think you can’t afford to play in this. But you have to listen, because this is the opportunity.” [14:31]

“Suddenly, NFT’s come and community tokens, and your mind is completely blown that this is not just money. It’s the entire exchange, transfer and storage of value for the internet. Whole business models are about to change massively, because of what this technology unlocks.” [18:50]

“Generational poverty is a mindset knowledge problem far more than it’s a money problem, because they managed to pass on a likelihood of being poor.” Tom Bilyeu [25:46]

“I want people to understand that this is a game and I don’t mean that in any sort of derogatory way, but it has rules. And if you understand those rules, there’s always an opportunity, especially in moments of disruption.” Tom Bilyeu [27:21]

“Don’t over force the narrative. Just be broad, be open and always be learning because we don’t know. This is all new, and it’s happening at lightning speed.” [34:31]

“You have to know that we don’t know the outcome, and anybody who tells you that they know what’s going to happen is just a fraud.” [37:00]

“Be paranoid, excessively paranoid, but still confident in that you’re right, and you also have to accept the risk of failure.” [39:31]

“This is true kind of distributed power within wealth creation, that people only dream of. This is the system not being against you, but working for you for once.” [1:15:14]

    Btc was the first, it laid the foundation for all todays blockchains, eth laid the foundation for smart contracts, was an upgrade to btc chain and updated the speed of transactions to, but still proof of work and extremly energy unefficient . Now we have solana, polkadot and many other proof of stake blockchains that are uptodate and extremely optimized and fast for our today's internet. Saying that eth or btc is the best and the future is dam wrong, is like saying that a car from the 70 is better then the latest tesla. No, they are old version, blockchain is software, software evolves. This is what is so awesome about blockchains, and the biggest diference from fiat, they evolve, become faster, better, more secure ready for mass adoptions. Ironically this is what most of investor do not understand and keep pumping old tech.

  5. >everyone has to use Ethereum or BTC
    He does know there are other smart-chains bridged to Etherum that allow cheaper and faster transactions?

  6. I'm not sure that poor communities know where to find these jewels. It's easy to say yeah I feel like there's opportunity for everyone disenfranchised, broke, or ignorant. I am just learning how to use my money in the market. I'm 47. The community and environment I was raised in had no introduction to economic wealth. My goal is to literally inform and introduce the investment and ownership knowledge to those who don't have the same access to this way of life.

    Hi everyone, and Tom if you see this. I'm looking for a little bit of help from the community. What platform would you recommend to trade crypto on? I'm based in the UK and currently have some crypto just sitting in a coinbase account and also some on binance. I have a metamask wallet but have never transferred anything in there as my holdings are not very large at the moment. I would like to increase my crypto purchases and wondering what the best strategy is? To dollar cost average am I better just using a platform like coinbase and leaving my crypto on there? Or are there better platforms and better ways to buy crypto monthly and then transfer and store in a wallet? I'm fairly new to this so any help would be much appreciated, cheers.

  8. I'm all for IOTA, Secret, and Holo in that order for now. I don't like the idea of high cost fees you could probably tell alot by me mentioning these coins
