What’s “The Banker’s Coin?” Will it Help You “Make a Fortune in the New Era of Crypto?”

I haven’t written about a blockchain, bitcoin or cryptocurrency teaser pitch for a while, so when the questions started piling up about the “Banker’s Coin” being teased by Barry Cohen in ads for his new Crypto Intelligence newsletter with Curzio Research, well, I thought I should at least try to get some answers for you. […]

Deciphering Ray Blanco’s “Stockchain” pitch about the “Wyoming Stock Exchange”

We’ve got a big new cryptocurrency-related pitch to look at for you today, and since it’s from Ray Blanco at Agora’s Breakthrough Technology Alert, one of the most heavily-marketed newsletters around, you’ll probably see the ad soon if you haven’t already. It’s all about what Ray Blanco calls “The Stockchain” … which is basically the […]

Rickards: “This $0.70 Crypto Game Changer Could Make You a FORTUNE in 2018… Starting Next Monday”

Pretty much every publisher has jumped on the cryptocurrency bandwagon, and this latest one shouldn’t come as much of a surprise… Jim Rickards has styled himself as a currency guru, with his “Currency Wars Alert” and plenty of pitches about the impending demise of the dollar or other major currency moves in recent years, and […]

What’s Navellier’s “Crytpocurrency Master Key” — is it “the “Holy Grail of cryptocurrency investing?”

This is the headline that got a lot of readers’ attention: “WARNING: Do not put a penny into any cryptocurrency until you read this urgent message.” It’s part of an ad for Louis Navellier’s Blue Chip Growth, and he goes on… “If you want to make a fortune in the red-hot cryptocurrency markets, there’s only […]

Jeff Brown’s Cryptocurrency Pitch: “President Trump’s secret new ‘$10 billion dollar’ tech investment…”

This is shaping up to be “bitcoin week” here at Stock Gumshoe — I wrote a bit more about my (befuddled and pessimistic) opinion about bitcoin itself late last week, and we got things rolling on Monday with David Gardner’s “bitcoin backdoor” stock… … and today, we move on to Jeff Brown at Bonner and […]

What’s that “August 28 ICO” pitch from Martin Hutchinson about?

“An entirely new digital currency will hit the net on August 28 “It will rapidly replace ALL current “crypto-currencies”… and then ring the funeral bell for the mighty U.S. dollar “Profits on this new currency are completely uncapped (unlike Bitcoin)… and based on past modeling, I predict they’ll be 1,000 times higher than we’ve ever […]

AIG & Ichan

I have written a letter to the CEO / Chairman of AIG advising them how they could get out of the SIFI Status with FED Oversight. I said that Bershire Hathaway started with a holding company to hold GEICO. It through off tremendous cash to buy other companies. Why can’t AIG do the same. Create […]
