Altucher’s “Coiled Crypto” Recommendations – Crypto Fortune or Catastrophe?

Altucher’s “Coiled Crypto” Recommendations

April 20, 2024 by Theodor

A single event scheduled to take place any day now could be our last chance to become crypto millionaires.

Longtime tech entrepreneur James Altucher knows of a few “Coiled Cryptos” that will spring up in value following this event, which could make our crypto dreams and caviar wishes come true.


The Teaser

As you may have heard, Bitcoin is about to go through something called a “halving.”

James Altucher may also be a name you're familiar with. He has been a tech scene sample since the dot com days and we have routinely reviewed his picks here at Greenbull, including his Second 1,000% Apple Call and “AI Crown Jewel” Supplier Stock, among others.

A halving means “to divide in two” and like clockwork, that's exactly what's happening to the supply of new Bitcoin on or around April 20th.

Why should you care?

Every single time Bitcoin has gone through a halving event, which happens every four years, it rockets up in value immediately after.

The first halving occurred on November 28, 2012, when Bitcoin was worth only $12.35. One year later, it traded for $964. That’s a 7,933% gain.

A similar thing happened during the last halving on May 11, 2020. Just before, Bitcoin was worth around $8,500. A few months later, it rose to $69,000.

Despite the ages-old investing axiom that past performance is no guarantee of future results, James wholeheartedly believes the next halving is going to mint millionaires and he's going to show us the best way to profit from it.

A Different Strategy

Since many investors have already bought Bitcoin in advance of the halving, ready to take some quick profits, simply buying Bitcoin is no longer the best strategy to make big bucks from the halving.

Instead, James has identified another cryptocurrency. One that has always gone up during a halving, just like Bitcoin and he is going out on a limb and saying it will rise way higher than Bitcoin this time around.

How much higher?

Approximately 8,788% by 2025 and James is going to give us its name, along with a few other “Coiled Cryptos.”


The Pitch

The names of all nine “Coiled Cryptos” are in a new report called Coiled Cryptos To Build A Fortune.

All it takes to get our hands on this report is…a subscription to the Altucher Investment Network, which costs $49 to join for a limited time.

The offer includes 12 monthly newsletters on how to make money with cryptocurrencies, a private access link to join an exclusive live session with James once per quarter, complimentary subscriptions to other daily newsletters, and a free PDF version of his latest book – The Big Book of Crypto.


What in the World is a Coiled Crypto?

Compared to crypto, investing in stocks is simple.

Find a business you understand with some form of competitive advantage, producing free cash flow, a healthy balance sheet, and good management.

In contrast, many crypto coins seem to have been created by someone in their parent's basement and are completely random.

James has a method for dealing with this.

The James Altucher Way of Identifying the Top 0.01% Crypto Coins

It starts by examining the code behind a cryptocurrency. This helps him figure out which cryptocurrencies are certified scams and which have real value.

The next step is doing deep research to confirm it’s being adopted not just by people, but businesses and financial institutions.

Finally, James uses his connections with Manhattan finance and the cool kids in Silicon Valley to make sure the smart money is going all in.

This process eliminates 99.9% of altcoins from the list.

The remaining is what James has dubbed “Coiled Cryptos.”  

These coins haven’t caught up with Bitcoin’s rise and still have their value pressed down like a coiled spring inside an uncomfortable mattress, but this is about to change.

Bitcoin’s rise is handing us a gift in the form of an opportunity to pick up cryptocurrencies primed to spring upwards and James has nine “Coiled Crypto” recommendations for us.


Revealing James Altucher's Coiled Crypto Recommendations

First Coiled Crypto

  • This cryptocurrency has all the advantages of Bitcoin, but it has more real-world use. Financial institutions are adopting it to form the backbone of their payment processing systems.

James is talking about Ethereum (ETH).

  • Ethereum supports smart contracts, which is what the global financial system is gradually moving towards and it could soon get its own ETF, just like Bitcoin. 

Second Coiled Crypto

If Ethereum goes up, so too will smaller coins built on its blockchain, which leads us to James' next pick.

  • This recommendation gathers, organizes, and supplies real-world data to smart contracts.
  • Bank of America published in a research report in 2022 that this cryptocurrency will be a major driver of DeFi (decentralized finance).

The pick here is Chainlink (LINK).

  • I found the 2022 report James alluded to and LINK fits the description, as its network is intended to be used to facilitate the transfer of tamper-proof data from off-chain sources to on-chain smart contracts.

Third Coiled Crypto

  • This crypto one solves a problem the entire cryptocurrency universe is facing – interoperability.
  • Its founders raised $145,000,000 in 2017 to work on solving this issue.

The third “Coiled Crypto” is Polkadot (DOT).

Fourth Coiled Crypto

  • This next coin can be used to borrow, earn interest, and passive income, just like a bank but without the annoying fees or middlemen.
  • Mark Cuban is already heavily invested and has gone on record saying “Banks should be scared” of this type of crypto.

Aave (AAVE) is the pick here.

  • AAVE is a decentralized finance (DeFi) open-source liquidity protocol that Mark Cuban said “banks should be scared of.”

Fifth Coiled Crypto

  • James says this crypto is likely to become the “Windows operating system” for Web 3.0.

NEAR Protocol (NEAR) fits the description like a comfy house slipper.

  • NEAR is an open-source blockchain platform designed to enable the creation of decentralized applications (dApps). 

Sixth Coiled Crypto

  • Is a major DeFi coin that has plummeted 88% below its all-time high and is now selling for around $6.

This is Uniswap (UNI), which was once flying high at over $40 and is now selling for just under $8, up slightly from $6 in February.

Seventh Coiled Crypto

  • This coin is going to be a major asset in the crypto-gaming space (GameFi) and is selling for just around a buck.

The pick here is Immutable (IMX).

  • IMX is up above $2 now and it is a leading platform for building web3 games on the Ethereum blockchain.

Eighth Coiled Crypto

  • Is going to be a major asset for enterprise-level businesses that want to use the blockchain and it is trading for just $0.71.

We are now moving from sure-fire pick reveals to somewhat educated guesses given the lack of hard info to work with. Having said that, Fantom (FTM) is a possibility here.

  • FTM is a blockchain platform for DeFi, crypto dApps, and enterprise applications. It is trading for exactly $0.71 as I type this.

Ninth Coiled Crypto

  • Aims to be the Google of cryptocurrency by indexing the blockchain and it is trading for only $0.39.

The Graph (GRT) indexing protocol for organizing blockchain data and making it easily accessible is the logical choice here. It also trades for just under $0.30, down from $0.39 in March.


Building a Crypto Fortune or Catastrophe?

I will go back to something James said earlier in this teaser:

99% of cryptos are junk.”

Outside of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and perhaps a couple of others, no coin has enough utility to receive the kind of widespread adoption needed to justify thousand percentage-point gains like James is hyping.

Will these altcoins be the exception to this rule?

All cryptocurrencies revealed here have a cap on their supply and are unlikely to get rug pulled by their founders. However, beyond short-term speculation around the Bitcoin halving event, I would treat a wager on most cryptos, including the ones here, as nothing more than a deferred lottery ticket.


Quick Recap & Conclusion

  • The Bitcoin Halving is upon us and James Altucher has a few “Coiled Cryptos” picks that will spring up in value following the quadrennial event.
  • “Coiled Cryptos” are different from 99% of other crypto coins because they have a cap on their supply and are owned by at least some “smart money” investors, like institutions and whales.
  • The names of all nine “Coiled Cryptos” are only revealed in a new report called Coiled Cryptos To Build A Fortune.
  • They are also revealed right here for free, well at least most of them. They are Ethereum (ETH), Chainlink (LINK), Polkadot (DOT), Aave (AAVE), NEAR Protocol (NEAR), Uniswap (UNI), Immutable (IMX), Fantom (FTM), and The Graph (GRT).
  • Buying crypto altcoins is like buying a scratch card from a lottery stand, pure speculation, but a lot of fun!

Which one of James Altucher's “Coiled Crypto” picks is your favorite? Tell us in the comments


Theodor is an old school value guy, when he's not looking for great companies and great prices you can find him on the basketball court hooping.

  • Thanks for your great investigative reports! I know very little about Crypto but keep reading and learning. I purchased the coiled crypto and can say, good job greenbull you got 6 of them. With so many to choose from that are similar this is probably a tough one!

  • Every week Greenbull provides valuable information on this page and every week no one comments. I just don’t understand it. I wanted to change that today and thank you guys personally for a much appreciated service.

    • Hi Skip. We really appreciate your comment and hope to continue providing this kind of value for you. Hopefully you enjoyed these crypto picks.

  • I have a small amount of eight of these cryptos which I bought in 2022 or 2023. We’ll see if I was wise or foolish in 2025.

  • Thanks so much. Despite plowing thousands into Crypto Pitches the best returns I have experienced are from Bitcoin and Ethereum .You do not need to pay Teeka or James for leads.

  • Thanks Theodore. Lots of compelling pitches out there about AI Crypto.
    WOULD SO LOVE any analysis of these.
    Keep up the great work!!

    • Thanks Joe, much appreciated. Based on the comments on this post, the speculative spirit is alive and well. I love it!
