The Future Of Crypto Wealth And Influence 

Marcus Bell is an American music producer, composer, musician, elite crypto investor, and trailblazer. His client list includes national and international recording artists, including Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce, to name a few. He has also produced material for Netflix, Sony, HBO, NBC, ABC, CBS, Amazon, and more. Marcus was one of the first individuals to launch a music album with NFTs in partnership with Shelita Burke, an award-winning musician, crypto savant, and fellow founder of the Conscious Wealth and Influence Collective.

Russ Alan Prince: What is The Conscious Wealth and Influence Collective?

Marcus Bell: The Collective is an invite-only, private group of high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals with the shared vision of creating global systems change. Any system or challenge is fair game—be it food production, mental health, water, education, energy, politics, technology, or anything else. What matters most is the passion to leverage our community, its incredible intelligence, and resources to work toward the desired change in the world. 

The Collective was created with the goal of empowering those who care most, to have the most. All through the exponential power of crypto investing. We believe that a tight-knit community of conscious crypto billionaires—or aspiring billionaires—truly has the power to elevate humanity and create new possibilities for our world, environment, and species. 

Yes, it sounds lofty and abstract—yet we meet weekly and deliver real-world training and trading/investing intelligence to our group—so that we move our vision forward in very practical, measurable ways. 

Prince: Who would benefit by joining the Collective?

Bell: It’s for individuals who are looking to expand their impact in the world and have the resources to invest and grow their positive influence. It’s for those who have wanted to get into crypto but aren’t sure whom to trust or where to start. 

The Collective is also ideal for anyone who understands that, while some coins may come and go, blockchain, crypto, and web3 are a huge part of the future. It’s for futurists who are looking to successfully navigate areas like Metaverse, DeFi, NFTs, and anything BlockChain. It’s an opportunity for people to learn from billionaires with specialized knowledge while building sustainable wealth in the process. 

Lastly, it’s for those who want to explore the limits of their potential in every area. To this end, we bring together some of the world’s top experts to help members optimize their brain, meditation, biology and health, psychology, and overall performance. 

Current Collective members and faculty include multiple billionaires, a current NASA member, a Ph.D. who is brain-training astronauts before they travel into space, a doctor with the world’s highest IQ, Stanford and Ivy League graduates, award-winning inventors, internationally-recognized entrepreneurs, and more.

Prince: What is your philosophy and approach to crypto investing?

Despite the considerable buzz about crypto and blockchain, we believe it’s very early in the lifespan of this powerful technology. It’s much like the Internet in the late 90s or early 2000s. Blockchain tech, including all its permutations, is already transforming countless industries and shifting the way value is exchanged all over the world. 

Unfortunately, many come into crypto with a short-term, “get rich quick” mindset that usually—at best—leads to an explosive gain at the expense of others. Or more often, at worst it causes losses for nearly all parties involved. It’s this short-term thinking and greed-driven approach that has hurt confidence in crypto.

Our investment philosophy is long-term and value-driven. We invest in projects with real value and utility, which can still rise significantly in price yet also maintain a good degree of value in down markets. Bitcoin, for example, has seen many rises and falls, including in 2022. Yet despite its recent drop, Bitcoin—a “blue chip” crypto—is still up more than 18,000% over the last decade. That is over six times higher than the top-gaining stock during that period. And more than 100 times higher than the S&P 500’s 10-year return. 

And nowadays, Bitcoin can easily be put into an IRA or trust or used in conjunction with sophisticated tax mitigation strategies and financial products. Bitcoin can be used to purchase real estate or fine art. And it can be exchanged or liquidated, even millions of dollars worth, in a single day. Sometimes in less than a minute or even seconds. All of this makes security and custody that much more critical. These are all very big areas of importance, yet just a small part of what we help teach Collective members how to do. 

Prince: What do you see as the future for the Collective?

Bell: Our vision for the Collective is incredibly ambitious. We are looking for no more than 100 individuals who want to maximize both their wealth and influence and become a force of change on the planet. 

Our intention is to mastermind with each other, while also working closely with global leaders and influential individuals from all walks of life. We have plans to build physical centers, to support members with cutting-edge health, wellness, and human performance technologies, while simultaneously functioning as meeting spaces for collaboration and community. 

Powerful and life-changing ideas get shared anywhere Collective members unite. Imagine 100 highly-conscious, philanthropic, inspired centi-millionaires and billionaires who are committed to creating a whole new world and humanity. 

That future is truly bright.
