Maria’s note: Maria Bonaventura here, senior managing editor of Inside Wall Street with Nomi Prins.

In these pages, we’ve been talking about how countries around the world are preparing to launch central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).

As we speak, the European Union (EU) is accelerating moves to launch the digital version of the euro.

The European Commission, the EU’s executive branch, will publish a proposal today that will be the legal foundation of the digital euro.

And only until recently, the U.S. was falling behind in this trend…

But as you’ll hear below from cryptocurrency expert and Nomi’s colleague Teeka Tiwari, that’s all about to change as soon as next month.

As he shows, the digital dollar could be coming very soon. And it will have even more profound implications for your wealth than the shift away from gold 50 years ago…

In the coming months, we could see President Joe Biden go on national TV and announce a new dollar “regime.”

He’ll say it’s for your own good…

He’ll tell you the government’s doing it to stop a new “de-dollarization” trend…

He’ll assure you it’s doing this to preserve the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency…

Historians might even call it the “Biden Shock” because it’ll catch most people by surprise.

But today, you have a chance to prepare.

Below, I’ll share three simple steps you can take to opt out of this new dollar regime if you so choose.

This move doesn’t require you to move abroad and become an expat… to get a second passport… or to already be rich.

Best of all, you can do it all from the comfort of your home.

The New Digital Dollar Regime

As you’re likely aware, the dollar is under threat as the world’s reserve currency.

Today most global trade is done in dollars. But countries including Brazil, India, China, and Russia are working on new ways to trade that don’t involve U.S. dollars.

To stem this de-dollarization trend, I believe the White House will roll out a new digital-only dollar.

You may have also heard of it as a central bank digital currency (CBDC).

In a recent conference, Fed Chair Jerome Powell said:

A U.S. CBDC could also potentially help maintain the dollar’s international standing.

Make no mistake: The digital dollar is real. And it could be coming as soon as next month.

That’s because the Fed has been quietly putting the groundwork in place for a CBDC.

It’s in the form of a new instant-payments network called FedNow. And it’s the infrastructure needed to transition to a U.S. digital dollar.

Last August, for instance, Fed governor Michelle W. Bowman said FedNow “addresses the issues that some have raised about the need for a CBDC.”

In other words, FedNow is a Trojan horse for CBDCs.

The Fed says it will launch FedNow in July. That means a Biden Shock could be right around the corner.

And the U.S. isn’t alone. Most of the world is getting behind CBDCs.

CBDCs Are Global

According to the think tank Atlantic Council, 114 countries are exploring digital currencies. Their collective economies represent more than 95% of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP).

China, India, Nigeria, and the Bahamas have already rolled out digital currencies. Others, like Sweden and Japan, are preparing for possible rollouts.

CBDCs will flow easily around the world through digital wallets. And they’ll allow central banks to cut out commercial banks’ wire companies from the money-transfer businesses.

If you’ve ever had a check held at a bank or had to figure out what a wire transfer is, this may sound fantastic.

But it would also give central banks unprecedented power to track and control how you spend your money.

They will also use the ease of transfer of CBDCs to help with monetary stimulus.

During the pandemic, President Trump had to send stimulus checks in the mail. In a world of CBDCs, the Fed could simply send digital dollars to everyone’s digital wallet app on their smartphone.

And if the economy is running too hot, it could do the opposite. It programs digital dollars to lose a certain amount of their value over time – say 10% a month. This would encourage folks to spend.

I know it sounds outrageous. But nobody can stop this trend. If you look at history, leaders have always tried to have more control over our wealth.

But there are simple moves you can make today to opt out of this digital dollar.

Three Steps to Opt Out Now

There are three simple steps to take right now…

  1. Open a crypto account

  2. Buy Bitcoin on an exchange

  3. Store it securely in a wallet

You may have heard me sermonize on Bitcoin (BTC) before. But with the possible move to a new dollar regime, it’s now more urgent than ever that you move a portion of your wealth to alternative assets like Bitcoin.

The beauty of Bitcoin is you hold it. Nobody can take it from you. You’re essentially your own bank.

Another reason you should own Bitcoin is because it’s a deflationary asset.

This deflationary feature in Bitcoin’s code is due to its “halvings.” The supply of new Bitcoin is cut in half once every four years until no more Bitcoins are minted.

There are still 29 more halvings left before the Bitcoin network reaches its hard cap of 21 million coins.

The next one, in 2024, will cut the new supply of incoming Bitcoin from 900 per day to 450. Then Bitcoin will halve again in 2028 – and so on – until the last halving in 2140.

Another advantage of Bitcoin – and any other permissionless blockchain – is that it’s decentralized.

That makes it resilient and robust.

No single computer or person controls Bitcoin. The Bitcoin software runs on thousands of computers around the world. So, no single government can shut it down.

Finally, Bitcoin has massive upside.

Bitcoin’s adoption is on the same trajectory as other groundbreaking technologies like the internet or smartphone adoption.

According to calculations by former Google engineer Michael Levin, Bitcoin’s adoption rate puts it on track for 1 billion Bitcoin users by 2025… about half the time it took the internet to reach the same milestone.

And when you get massive adoption of a deflationary asset, you get a massive price explosion.

I expect a single BTC will be worth north of $500,000 by the end of the decade. That’s a gain of 1,500% from today’s price of $31,000.

And owning Bitcoin isn’t the only way to escape the digital dollar regime… Gold will be another escape hatch.

That’s why I put together a new playbook to show you how to protect yourself – and profit – from the Biden Shock. It includes…

  • My top stock recommendation for the digital-dollar age

  • My favorite Biden Shock crypto play

  • A hidden way to 10x your money on gold

  • And a step-by-step guide to buying and storing your Bitcoin

And for more on the FedNow programs… the banks involved… and how it all points to a U.S. dollar CBDC rollout in 2023… watch my full presentation here.

P.S. My research suggests that this digital dollar takeover could begin as soon as July 26… just weeks away…

So make sure you tune in to my presentation.

I’ll share exactly what the de-dollarization and CBDC rollout entail… and I’ll even reveal the names and tickers of three picks I’ve discovered that are directly involved in developing – or becoming an escape hatch from – central bank digital currencies.

One of these picks is a $0.25 alternative investment that could make you a fortune once this all begins.

So go here to access it.
