This is only the second time I’ve looked into a teaser pitch for Frank Curzio’s Crypto Intelligence newsletter since it was first launched — the timing for that launch was pretty rough, the newsletter started promoting itself in the first half of 2018, when bitcoin was crashing off its first bubblicious peak and everyone was giving up on cryptocurrencies, so it’s good to hear that the newsletter is still around. Even if it appears that Barry Cohen is no longer helming the service, (it seems to be Frank himself running Crypto Intelligence these days).
So what’s Frank pitching these days? He says it’s the “Goldman Sachs of the Crypto Industry” — a nice line, but what does it mean?
Here’s the headline from the ad:
“THIS COULD BE MY 6TH CRYPTO 10-BAGGER
“Learn How To Claim Your Stake In This Urgent Trade Below…”
And, for those of you who don’t much like farting around with all the different exchanges and wallets and “on ramps” to the digital currency world, where many exchanges seem sketchy and lots of little cryptocurrencies aren’t traded on the exchanges you happen to be familiar with (I agree, it’s a pain in the neck), this is not actually a cryptocurrency… Curzio is teasing a publicly traded stock:
“This is NOT some tiny crypto that could go to zero in the blink of an eye.
“It’s a publicly-traded company.
“And, as I’ll show you in a second…
“It’s displaying the EXACT same ‘explosive indicators’ as some of my biggest crypto winners to date.”
He lays it on pretty thick, too…
“We’re in the middle of a once-in-a-lifetime transformation of our financial system.
“The Apples and Amazons of tomorrow are in their infancy today.
“Fast-actors can permanently change their lives with just a few investments in this industry…”
Maybe so, I wouldn’t argue that the financial system seems likely to evolve… but remember, it’s not just the Apples and Amazons of the future that are in their infancy today, a lot of the startups of this generation will go the way of Webvan, Flooz or Pets.com, too, forgotten or persisting as just a cautionary tale for the next generation.
Part of the argument, as is common among crypto enthusiasts these days (and makes sense) is that big institutional buyers have gotten into the space now, building up some more stability that might (fingers crossed) mean that last year’s spike in cryptocurrency prices won’t be followed by a repeat of 2018’s crash… in Curzio’s words:
“It’s clear what we’re seeing today is something completely different.
“Because this time a ton of big players with deep pockets are getting involved.
“Companies like Tesla and Microstrategy have purchased billions in Bitcoin in the last year alone…
“Even Blackrock, the world’s largest asset manager with $8.7 trillion in assets under management, is beginning to “dabble” in Bitcoin.
“But it’s not just Bitcoin…
“Coinbase, the largest U.S. crypto exchange by volume, claims a “growing number” of its institutional clients have taken positions in Ethereum…”Are you getting our free Daily Update

And Coinbase will be going public next week, just FYI, it should start trading through a direct listing next Wednesday, April 14… so a lot of folks are looking to that as the next big attention-getter in the crypto space.
But what is it that Curzio is pitching today? We do get a few clues. Here’s a little bit from the pitch:
“The three reasons why I’m convinced this little-known crypto stock will absolutely explode in the near future
“First, the company is run by a number of former higher ups at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Blackrock, a
