As we're watching Bitcoin millionaires being made by the minute, we want our readers to see CoinDesk's top five traders and learn how actual people are turning Bitcoin into life-changing profits. And we're here to help you every step of the way…
On Nov. 10, 2017, we provided Money Morning readers with CoinDesk's list of top five analysts.
You see, Bitcoin has become a lucrative investment, and it's minted millionaires overnight.
Even though the first Bitcoin transaction was less than 10 years ago, in 2009, the cryptocurrency now has a market cap over $156 billion.
Bitcoin and the underlying blockchain technology that makes it all work are more than just trends. In fact, there's one Bitcoin price prediction that shows the cryptocurrency could reach $1 million by 2030.
That's why we want our readers to know CoinDesk's top five traders in the industry, including what makes them worth following.
The list starts off with "one of the most prolific" sports bettors in the world…
CoinDesk's Top Trader, No. 5: Bob Voulgaris
Before he became a crypto investor, Voulgaris made a career of betting full-time on the NBA games.
He began betting on sports in the late 1990s, and within five years, he had accumulated a fortune, according to ESPN. At the time, he reportedly had a winning streak of 70% and was routinely wagering $1 million in a single day of basketball games.
Now he's investing in Bitcoin and sharing his thoughts on Twitter. Inc. (NYSE: TWTR).
"Make no mistake, Bob has traded cryptocurrencies since the early days, and evangelized friend Mark Cuban from his 'Bitcoin is a bubble position' to investing in tokens," CoinDesk said.
CoinDesk's Top Trader, No. 4: Peter Brandt
Brandt entered the commodity trading business in 1976, and he handled large institutional accounts like Campbell Soup and Godiva chocolate until 1980.
After that, Brandt founded Factor Trading Co. Inc., a company that traded proprietary funds and managed trading activities of institutional clients.
He's also the author of "Diary of a Professional Commodity Trader: Lessons from 21 Weeks of Real Trading."
"Other crypto traders have been able to learn from the best charter in the game, and the crypto industry is better for the attention, thought, and skills Peter has brought," CoinDesk said.
CoinDesk's Top Trader, No. 3: Tone Vays
Vays has a background on Wall Street, serving as the assistant vice president of financial systems at Bear Stearns Asset Management from 2007 until 2008, and as the VP of financial systems at JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) from 2007 until 2010.

CoinDesk's Top Trader, No. 1: CryptoCobain
The alter ego for this pseudonymous trader is pretending late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain faked his death to become a "cryptocurrency degenerate."
Despite the pseudonym, 62,000 Twitter followers flock to his advice.
"Besides daily commentary, and never wavering from the idea that he quit the band, CryptoCobain shares helpful insight on risk management, portfolio allocation, and which coins he thinks are due for a pump," CoinDesk said.
