Land in the poorer areas of major cities, particularly in countries with high birth rates. I figure we're due for another expansion of cities in the next couple decades, and I don't see it slowing down with how the population is growing.

The common theme of all of these is that they are all limited resources. Land is limited and as the world's population rises, the price of land will rise too.

As it stands, there are places where you can buy buildings and land for dirt cheap in ghettos. If the price of living in cities continues to go up, the poor people who live there will end up getting forced farther outward and the land you buy there today for a dollar will be worth a grand.

Maybe it's not as lucrative or as sure as the other things, but at the very least you'll have somewhere to live if you bust. That's better than nothing.

Look for battery tech. With solar wind and other forms of energy being used appropriately in respective climates ( i.e. solar is southwest US, Africa, etc) battery tech will be the one universal tool for storing that energy.

Think local battery storage as transmission lines will be costly to maintain and repair. Possibly look into previous metals used in these batteries when the time really comes.

Land as always is a good investment unless there is an epidemic/large catastrophic event.

As for gen z specifically, I imagine virtual world tech will be big. Think sensors in all devices generating a virtual world in which you could travel via immersive tech and such. Want to see china? Don't have to sit on a plane for 10+hours, pop in your simulator and explore the red light districts in Beijing.

Bitcoin is so insignificant that the International Monetary Fund are debating the long term implications of it, and their senior legal counsel has advised that their only hope in the event of a speculative attack is to acquire a significant quantity of Bitcoins right fucking now before they become too expensive. That is their only insurance option. Things are about to get extremely fucking real during this bout of dollar hyperinflation but you're a butthurt graper that can't handle tech progress.

>the fucking economist is praising Bitcoin
Even the mainstream media plebs get it. Yet all you can do is resert to a vapid "lol my ass off" reply while having *absolutely no idea* about Bitcoin.
>Plassaras asserts that the IMF is ill-equipped to handle the widespread use of digital currencies in the foreign exchange market, and a theoretical speculative attack from bitcoin users.

>A speculative attack in the foreign exchange market is the massive selling of a country's currency assets by both domestic and foreign investors.

>If this happens, the nation's central bank would need to already possess bitcoin reserves in order to offset the attack, and if it does not have enough bitcoin, it would turn to the IMF for assistance, if it is a member.

>However, the IMF does not have any bitcoin currently, and will find it challenging to obtain enough bitcoin for their reserves. Further, if there is a speculative attack by a bitcoin holder, the IMF's current rules do not allow the agency to acquire bitcoin.

This lawyer thinks the IMF needs to start acquiring bitcoin reserves, either by requiring member countries to pay a portion of their subscription in bitcoin, or by purchasing bitcoin directly, and the longer they wait, the harder it will be to acquire substantial reserves. Whoa.
>>
>>963816
So... some random lawyer from some obscure law firm is saying the IMF needs to prepare in case Bitcoin becomes mainstream? Hmm....

I love the way IMF responds:
> it’s too limited a phenomenon to have any macroeconomic significance or financial stability implications
> bitcoin is “for money laundering.”
> suspicious
Any response that was non scathing was just an attempt for them to be diplomatic. "Something to watch". Pshhh

Wow and this is an article that is PRO Bitcoin? Yikes. I would hate to hear the full excerpts. Protip: Nobody with any real amount of intelligence takes Bitcoin seriously. Nobody who isn't "invested" in this ponzi scheme thinks Bitcoin is ever going to be mainstream.

The IMF might buy bitcoins, bitcoins might become a bubble again, but that's the thing, I am not here to gamble, I am here to do my research and find opportunities for which there is compelling evidence in support of, not rumors by shills. If you want to achieve 10%+ annualized over the long term you don't take risks like this or indulge in petty foibles like a fixation with bitcoin, you find better opportunities.

If I had to put money on whether the IMF will buy bitcoins or not I would assume the IMF won't bother.

1: the amount of people who own bitcoins and are engaging in speculation are too insignificant to affect a currency
2: if bitcoin fails due to blockchains getting too large or whatever it will be viewed as incompetence
3: they don't want to lend credence to bitcoins which are controversial and unpopular among some governments, their customers
4: the IMF has to maintain a reputation for making sensible low risk investments

Traditionally population kind of bubbles in areas of cities due to demographic growth.
And areas which are popular now, get filled with old people and become less vibrant and attractive.
Historically the answer to what your talking about has been suburban flight.
When this happens inner city areas literally start to fall apart because the building need more input than there is projected profits. Think New York in the 80's and 90's.

If anything and keeping in tune with the thread software which delivers suburban property to articulate demographics in a fresh new exciting way would be more profitable than the properties it would be selling

Had a reply typed out, but 4chan ate it, so here's the TL;DR:
You need to be able to wait a few years, but those were required for the crazy gains you mentioned, so here goes.
Highest to lowest gains that I predict:

--water (will be the first resource to bottleneck, food will follow shortly after)
--food (can't have crops or livestock without water, so when water goes in short supply food will too)
--residential land (people need somewhere to live)
--farmland (people need somewhere to grow food)
--clean energy (since people care, the industry will grow faster)
--medicine (with less food per capita, many more people will get sick, and any company offering relief will be great, but a luxury)

We're seeing the trends already -- people are getting fed up with their wages. Whether I agree isn't the issue, but if they succeed labor will leave the country and we're screwed. Hence, I'd say that the essentials in the USA (since people have the money for them for now) are good, we're going to see a new wave of that. But I'd also say that it'd be good to invest in semi-luxuries overseas (India, China, and even Africa), since as their economies grow due to even MORE jobs leaving, they'll be able to buy more.

I think that, in Africa, medicine would be a great industry since people could start to afford it when this happens.
In Asia, cheap electronics companies, telecom providers, and the like would be excellent for the value investor.
In Europe, people might want to take their mind off of immigration and be better prepared for terrorism. Possibly a company dealing with that.

Not to get /pol/ here, but this is one of few benefits I see to a Democratic candidate getting elected -- raising the minimum wage would make the above issues happening more likely.

TLDR:
>Asian electronics
>African medicine and quasi-luxuries
>European defense/consumer elec
>Worldwide water/food
>American, European, Far East Asian land
>Energy in places like Calif and Japan
>>

(cont. a little bit)
And anyone arguing for bitcoin is looking to the past for future money. It's hard to spend and targeted towards investors, who USES it anymore? Now who USES 1800 numbers (tons of people) or dotcom domains (tons)?

The world is hitting saturation levels. Unless a massive war happens IN the West (unlikely to be fought on our home turf), anyone with a brainstem and cash should be investing in the above.

I'd also suggest not just buying stocks. I'd say real estate that produces something > real estate that produces nothing > stocks. Like, buy a factory or a generator or a parcel of farmland or something. Whenever this bottleneck OR war happens (it doesn't matter, same result), you'll have some power over your resources. Then you can charge for them -- your passive income just skyrocketed AND the property value did too.

I'm trying to get a tech business up and running for this precise reason -- with the drama in Europe, it seems a war in the Middle East or in Europe in coming, and I want to be able to profit.

water and food won't bottleneck in any western country, they're easy fixes.
>>
It all depends on what direction we head in -- if tech and society progress, invest in luxuries such as

>>967894
Water will bottleneck -- we already see it in California. There's a limited amount of water on the planet that has to be distributed to many people. If we're in the middle of a recession or a war, as I predict happening within the next 2 decades, then any drought that affects civilians will become a catastrophe that is not paid attention to since there are more important problems. And - if we're in a recession - we'll have fewer resources to devote to water generation, meaning shortages; while - if we're in a war - people who would be working in the facilities would be gone fighting, meaning shortages.

At that point, food will start to bottleneck because crops take water to produce and livestock take crops and water to produce. Simple as that. And if we're in a massive recession where the dollar collapses, it'll be harder to import food.

The exception is any producer that focuses on the military (if it's a war), they'll have business out the wazoo.

People will still want luxuries, but only have a very limited amount of money for them, which is why I suggest non-necessary medicines (targeted towards Africans and Americans), cheapo electronics (Asians and Americans), and things that we don't consider luxuries but people in a much less fortunate region might, in general.

Hence, I revise my suggestions:
>wait for signs of large-scale recession/conflict to see if my predictions come true
>short things that relate to American water and food, especially taking into account droughts and geography (e.g. harder to get food from Cali than from New York)
>wait until the stocks drop, then buy them since water/food will make a rebound eventually
>buy farmland once the prices plummet
>if people go away for war, take note of where they leave from and buy real estate in nearby regions once the prices drop; they'll want to come back.
>buy energy in up-&-coming areas

No, if there's a war the West is a great place to short stock or to invest when it hits the bottom. The West will ALWAYS need food, water, electricity, and land.

TLDR of my post:
Take the countries that supply goods for the war, invest in luxuries for those countries. Think consumer electronics.
Take the countries that are affected by but not in the war, invest in consumer goods that would aid in their defense (like guns and stuff).
Take the countries that are affected by and in the war, invest in things you need for soldiers (like medicine, guns, MRE suppliers).
Take the countries in the West, invest in land that is a source of passive income preferably. What do I mean? Anything from tiny parcels of farmland to factories to power plants. That way you get the return during a wartime of a passive income AND the real estate value will boom after the war. Win-win.

Of course, this all hinges on a war happening. That doesn't seem unlikely, though.

This is why I'm trying my hardest to get a technology company up and running within 5 years, so that I can sell it -- if there's a world war coming, it's the PERFECT time for investors who are street smart. Buy land when the values crash, buy stocks when the values crash, it's all going to go back up.

If I had a million dollars at the start of this hypothetical world war, I could turn it into 50 million by the end. Someone is making money off of this stuff - might as well be me.

oh look at that, three days after my post this comes up.

>inb4 ifl science

Anyways, this is the type II particle and is only hypothesised, but the type I particle is proven to exist (was proven a few months ago).

A type I Weyl fermion is a particle with electrical charge but no mass, i.e. electrically charged light. It does not lose electrical charge, momentum nor change direction until it interacts with another Weyl fermion. This is why it's so absolutely revolutionary. The current travels at the speed of light, does not lose any energy in terms of waste heat and doesn't react with any other particles. Put 2 and 2 together, anon.

>Being this oblivious to the severe threat of a new Spanish Flu pandemic that would destroy the profit margins on investments that predict greater consumption of natural resources

People have forgotten all about disease.

My prediction is that a huge fucking outbreak is just scheduled to occur. Just think about how many more people there are in the world and what kind of conditions they currently live in. If you're having an exponential increase in people, and an exponential increase in population density, you're getting an exponential increase in the risk of a massive disease outbreak. It is like piling up an enormous mountain of tinder and expecting it never to catch fire.

Medicine is the one. Medicine will always be in demand, whether the big disease happens or not.

BTC nearlydoubled from October to early this month so...
What the fuck are you on about?
You can still make a profit off of bitcoins.
Is it the best investment?
I don't fucking know, but you can make a profit of off it fairly easily depending on when you buy and sell so its not a "Ponzi scheme".

A lot of internet coins did go that sorta way, however so you kind of have a point, but its too late for that particular kind of manipulation.

I don't know if it will or won't last, but the math is the math.

Thank you all for your thought provoking responses.

I'm Gen X and my goldmine was domain names. I missed out on bitcoins and believe it's too late for any huge profits. Any large investment in bitcoins is pure currency speculation in my opinion. However I do believe bitcoin use will increase. If it were possible, I would buy shares of CoinBase in a heartbeat.

The NXT cryptocurrency has the option to store key-value pairs in the network, bound to your account. Costs 1 nxt coin per registration. If the network ever takes off, those can be used as urls or accountnames.

I've seen hoards of novel crypto-assets make $1+ valuations and do this consistently. It doesn't always happen with every asset but every asset that has technological potential (beyond just hype) seems to gain a huge market cap in the millions. This means that if you constantly monitor new developments in technology and the blockchain scene: you can buy 10k worth of a new asset when its still worth a pittance and increase it over 1000%. If you thought penny stocks were incredible, alt-coins swing even harder than penny stocks, and usually with the force of several suns. It's just that most investors won't have the required technical skills to assess whether an asset makes a novel contribution or whether its just hot air, which is why you haven't heard of more millionaires.

All the people getting rich from this are nerds and they're keeping quiet about it for tax reasons. Jesus christ, if you faggots even knew how much I had right now ... sometimes I can't believe it myself but EVERY asset is a profitable long position if you discard the crap coins. Start reading white papers and get rich. That's how it works in the blockchain scene.
>>
>>980051
Every coin will eventually have a distribution like that, just like wealth always distributes unevenly. The coin that will win in the end is the one that will be adapted by the current big financial powers. At that point, there will be a small rich group and a big group fighting for scraps, same as it ever was. Look at the evolution of mining power in btc. We are already in centralized territory.

Muh honest money is a pipe dream, power structures and power laws are the reality. Nxt is as "fairly" distributed as any coin that will be widely used will ever be.
>>
>>980057
Would you like to give your opinion on stellar and dash as i read into the basics (no whitepapers) and didnt hear anything greatly convincing, but they seem to have made their way to the top of the current crypto market.
>>
>>980065
Dash's main innovation was it's privacy feature which was accomplished through the coin-join protocol. This protocol - while being quite novel at the time - has since been replaced by better approaches. For example, atomic cross-chain transfers are a way of exchanging crypto-assets between blockchains without a third-party. Such an approach allows the transfers to be anonymized as there's effectively no link between the chains. It's all done based on cryptography and kind of semi-zero knowledge proof type stuff. So IMO, Dash is one of those old-school coins that was initially quite innovative but has since been replaced by better stuff (I.E. Monero-style ring signatures.) I would not invest in this as the market for Dash is largely inflated by manipulators.

Then there's stellar. Stellar is basically a fork of the original Ripple code, which was in fact extremely innovative. I believe Ripple's main contribution was the introduction of a new consensus algorithm that -wasn't- based on proof-of-work. The name "Ripple" is a lot like the consensus algorithm that powers it: where consensus rapidly populates across the servers on the network based on quorums, and while I can't say if Steller is worth investing in - I will say that the underlying technology behind Ripple is sound - so much so that it may be a valid contender to blockchain technology for banks. But -only- if quorums are provably sound. The biggest problem with ripple-style consensus is it's very hard to mathematically prove the cryptographic hardiness of the underling network because rather than being based on say: computational complexity - quorums are based a lot more trust relationships between peers - which could potentially be corruptible.

My advice: keep turning over stones until you find something that is being overlooked by the majority (either because they don't have a product yet or they're still embryonic.) Enough money has been already made on Dash and Stellar so its too late.

As a beginner, how would you recommend I get into becoming well versed with crypto-assets, getting to a point where I can monitor new developments and understand what the hell they mean and the price implications of those developments? I got into crypto for a month or two last year and got burned hard as I followed twitter waves and hunches with no technical analysis whatsoever.

I hate how people throw the word generation around so casually.
Generations aren't so black and white to the point where you can just slap a time frame on a one specific trend and give it a name.

to be fair, the word 'generation' is pretty helpful in describing age brackets. When it comes to markets which you can appeal to, the age groups differ wildly, with some overlap on the top and bottom of the range.
