Jeff Bezos doesn’t want you to see this 👀
Jeff Bezos can't stop, won't stop. In the last 30 days, Amazon teamed up with Berkshire Hathaway to launch a healthcare company, acquired a home security company for over $1B, and is rumored to be building a bank.

They also figured out why Alexa was randomly laughing at people. Creeeeeeeepy. 👀

We have a secret: you can save up to 35% of every Amazon order using a little-known site called Purse, if you pay in bitcoin.

Purse finds people who want to trade their Amazon gift cards for bitcoin, so everybody wins in the end. They integrate directly with Coinbase too, so you can buy and spend seamlessly.

If you're looking for easier ways to shop on Amazon:
  • 🤖 Earny gives you money back on purchases when prices drop
  • 💳 Amazon Prime Rewards Card gives you 5% cash back
  • 🐪 Camel alerts you in advance when a product's price drops
  • 👀 WikiBuy finds you lower prices from across the internet and displays them directly in Amazon

Last week, Coinbase launched their newest product: a crypto index fund, so you can invest in all of the cryptocurrencies.

Right now, it's pretty limited: only accredited investors in the US can invest, and it's limited to a fixed ratio of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin. They tweeted out their future plans:

  • Step 1. Offer Coinbase Index Fund to US-resident, accredited investors.
  • Step 2: Make available to all investors.
  • Step 3: Launch more funds which will cover a broader range of digital assets.

They're not alone: Metastable Capital and Bitwise launched over the summer, also restricted to US-based accredited investors.

But... crypto is built to be decentralized, democratic, and open. So, here's how to build your own index fund of investments (no accredition required):

  • Step 1. Have money.
  • Step 2. Buy bitcoin from Square Cash (for free!), Coinbase, Robinhood Crypto, LibertyX, or your favorite exchange.
  • Step 3. Pick your preferred tokens from this always-updating list.
  • Step 4. Convert your Bitcoin into any token with Shapeshift.
  • Step 5. Auto-balance your portfolio with this tool.
  • Step 6. Store each cryptocurrencies securely with a software or hardware wallet (like a Trezor).
  • Step 7. Monitor your portfolio beautifully with Delta.
  • Step 8. Pay your crypto taxes correctly with TokenTax or Visor.
  • Step 9. HODL 🚀🌕
