Marijuana vs Bitcoin: Here's why one investor is way more comfortable with cannabis capital in ETF
ETF Managers Group’s Alternative Harvest marijuana ETF has grown from about million to 0 million in the past month. Founder and CEO Sam Masucci said the group diversified investments to mitigate risk, but thinks the American cannabis industry is here to stay.

CNBC :Cryptocurrency ETFs proved too risky for ETF Managers Group Founder and CEO Sam Masucci, but he threw caution to the wind with his latest marijuana ETF — and it’s paying off.

“The business is growing, the companies entering it are growing,” Masucci said on CNBC’s “Fast Money.”

“We see this as a tremendous investment opportunity.”

ETF Managers Group in late December launched Alternative Harvest ETF, which tracks around 30 domestic and international stocks that may benefit from the growing marijuana industry. The ETF started with million in assets under management and has grown to around 0 million in just under a month, Masucci said.

Since Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded the Cole Memo, sending pot stocks tumbling, there is reason to be concerned when dealing big money in marijuana. But Masucci has accepted a degree of volatility, something he wasn’t willing to do with cryptocurrency.

“We can’t explain the volatility within bitcoin. Until we are comfortable with it and we know how to trade it, we don’t see ourselves getting involved,” he said.

A majority of Alternative Harvest’s companies are based in Canada or other countries, where legalization is impending or where regulations are more lax. As far as domestic companies go, Masucci said ETF Managers Group was careful to pick those best suited to benefit from the cannabis boom, like hydroponics company Scott’s Miracle Gro or cigarette manufacturer Philip Morris.

“We will continue to participate in those companies that are largest, and right now, the largest piece is outside of the U.S.,” Masucci said.

Despite Sessions’ actions, Masucci has high hopes that the U.S. cannabis industry will stick around.

“Twenty-eight states now have approved medical marijuana, 16 more have it on the docket for this year,” Masucci said.

“There are so many medical advancements now happening with the cannabidiol oils and the uses of the plant, I don’t see that going away,” he added.

Tiny new digital currencies are offering profits far bigger than bitcoin and much more quickly, I've personally made over 600% in one digital currency more than 1,981 in a second and over 3,500% in another, and I expect to make a whole lot more. Digital currencies is now one of the online investments where you can start with $10 and turn that into real money fast. CNBC did a story about a high school dropout who bought some bitcoin at $12 and is now a millionaire. also top investors worldwide are going all in on the new digital currencies. Now this is what you guys should know . A new set of coins are being launched now that could help you turn as little as $10 into over $1 million. I've never seen profit opportunities like this before in any market and at anytime. For example, in one recent week 23 separate digital currencies doubled in value. By comparison, the S&P 500 hasn't seen a single stock double yet this year. But only those who recognize the opportunity right now will see the fast profits. I first got in on Bitcoin at $83.40 and $128… only to watch it soar to over $2,000. But now I've turned my attention to the new digital currencies. For example; I invested in ANTSHARES earlier last year and at the time it was trading for just $1.50 but I watched it climb to $10.71 in less than a month. I invested in tiny new digital currencies of 12 coins and I cashed out 12,000 at $3.50 but still hold the rest… nearly $100,000 in total. There are now dozens of small digital currencies trading for just a few cents that are moving up dramatically over very short periods; like Asch traded for few cents at first but in less than 3 months $100=$,570. NolimitCoin traded for few cents but now $100=5,348 in 6 days. MediterraneanCoin traded for few cents but now $100=8,313 in 3 months, the list is endless, I will stop here so I don't bore you guys, but it is sure worth your time. in case you are interested in venturing into investing in Crypto and Digital Currencies, or perhaps you are trading them but you don't understand what you are doing, feel free to contact me via email (bresowskyanne @gmail .com) and I will be sure to guide and assist you with any information you may need to invest in these new and unpopular crypto and digital currencies that are making waves at the moment.
