Alex Koyfman has published a stock teaser presentation on the Angel Publishing website centered around “Crystal Surge” technology.
According to Koyfman, the company behind this tech has “found the holy grail of the energy industry,” and investors could “stand to pocket incredible 13,495% returns.”
What’s it all about? And is it legit?
In short, Alex Koyfman’s presentation is about a company that has developed an energy storage system that doesn’t require lithium. The “crystal” he’s referring to is zinc, and the energy storage system he’s teasing is essentially a zinc-air battery.
Whether or not this “breakthrough,” as Koyfman describes it, is better than lithium-ion or not is debatable. But the innovation he’s talking about is real and has potential.
In this post, I’ll walk you through everything I learned about “Crystal Surge” technology, show you what company I think he’s teasing, and give you an overview of Microcap Insider, the $1,999 service he’s promoting as part of the presentation.
What Is “Crystal Surge” Technology?
Alex Koyfman’s presentation began by asking readers to “take a look” at a metallic rock that he describes as a “kind of crystal.” And according to Koyfman, this so-called crystal has “unlocked an unlimited supply” of zero-cost energy.
What’s more, he claims that this “breakthrough” could “ignite an epic stock run” capable of seeing early investors turn every $500 into $67,975, which is a pretty bold prediction.
“Take a look at this crystal…
Thanks to a stunning breakthrough in chemical engineering…
This kind of crystal has unlocked an unlimited supply of energy… enough to power the entire U.S. with clean electricity 24/7. And the cost of this energy is zero. It’s free.
This will have a MASSIVE impact on the daily lives of 331 million Americans. And if you position yourself correctly, it could completely change your financial future.
Because this breakthrough is set to ignite an epic stock run capable of turning every $500 into $67,975 for early investors.”Source: https://secure2.angelpub.com/o/web/396026
According to Koyfman, this “very special kind of crystal” was discovered in 1746. However, he says that the technology needed to “tap into its amazing properties” was only recently developed by a Vancouver-based company.
A company that he says has developed a “patent-protected” breakthrough…
“You see, even though this very special kind of crystal was discovered back in 1746…
The technology required to tap into its amazing properties was just recently developed.
The Vancouver-based company behind it has been working on it quietly for 13 years.
Scientists and engineers worked in a secret high-tech lab day and night to achieve this breakthrough that’s now protected by 20 patents…”
What “special kind of crystal” is Koyfman referring to?
Koyfman didn’t reveal the details of the so-called “crystal” he was referring to in the presentation, but a quick bit of research revealed that he was talking about zinc.
How do I know?
Because, for one thing, the image Koyfman shared in the presentation is of metallic zinc. Second, zinc was discovered by a German chemist in 1746. And third, as I’ll explain shortly, the energy storage system he appears to be teasing is based on zinc.
As for why he calls it a crystal instead of zinc – it’s a bit of a gimmick.
Many presentations use unusual names for things to add an element of mystery, and zinc has a hexagonal crystal structure, so that might explain where Koyfman got the idea.
Anyway, as for the “unlimited supply” of zero-cost energy Koyfman teased, what he’s referring to there is solar energy from the sun.
“So where does this energy come from?
It originates from our closest star — the Sun. These particles come from the Sun’s core and travel to the Earth’s atmosphere.”
And according to Koyfman, “Crystal Surge” is all about storing this energy.
“Crystal Surge tech is well on the way to solving this problem. It will help us exploit the Sun’s infinite amount of energy and unleash solar’s true potential.”
“You see, Crystal Surge is about energy storage.”
What’s the big deal?
As Koyfman explained in the presentation, solar panels have become increasingly efficient and cost-effective over the years, but thousands of gigawatt-hours are wasted each year because not all of the energy can be used as it’s generated.
There may be ample power when the sun is shining and the wind is blowing but if supply exceeds demand, that energy is wasted without proper energy storage. Not to mention, it goes without saying that solar would be useless at night without energy storage.
So this is why energy storage is such a big deal, especially as the world pushes toward renewable energy. And Koyfman believes “Crystal Surge” technology is the answer.
Koyfman pointed out a handful of reasons why he believes “Crystal Surge” is better than lithium-ion batteries, which is one of the most common forms of energy storage. And from what I can gather, the reasons he shared more or less sum up his overall thesis.
Here’s an overview of why Koyfman’s bullish on Crystal Surge:
- The first reason had to do with how he believes there isn’t enough lithium to make the batteries needed to store “all the extra solar and wind power.”
- Second, Koyfman pointed out that countries like China control a large portion of the world’s lithium supply.
- Third, he said that Crystal Surge is “as much as 360% cheaper than lithium batteries.”
- Fourth, he said it’s based on a more abundant element. And as mentioned earlier, “Crystal Surge” tech appears to be based on zinc, which is more abundant than lithium.
- Fifth, Koyfman said Crystal Surge doesn’t degrade over a 20-year lifespan.
- And finally, he said it’s nonflammable, which (as a side point) is one of the main arguments numerous other gurus teasing battery stocks have made as to why solid-state lithium-ion batteries are superior.
In summary, Koyfman believes that the company behind Crystal Surge will “change the world” since it’s found a way to store solar and wind energy without using lithium.
“This is why the company behind Crystal Surge is set to change the world.
It’s found the holy grail of the energy industry — storing the Sun’s and wind’s endless amounts of energy — without requiring a single ounce of lithium.”
How does Crystal Surge technology work?
According to Alex Koyfman, Crystal Surge involves a “three-part process” where solar or wind power is fed into an electrolyzer that creates “tiny crystal particles,” which are then stored in an “airtight storage unit” and delivered to the “Power Stack.”
“It all works with a simple but ingenious three-part process.
First, power from solar or wind is fed into a so-called electrolyzer. That’s where electricity creates tiny crystal particles from this metal…
Second, the crystal particles flow into an airtight storage unit and are kept there until they’re required.
And finally, whenever power is needed, the crystal particles are delivered to the “Power Stack.”
That’s where they unleash their energy…
Because as soon as they come into contact with air, these crystal particles burst with electricity— enough to power whole apartment blocks, office buildings, or factories.”
Long story short, Alex Koyfman claims that this invention is potentially worth billions and that the only company that can “collect all this cash” is the “tiny firm from Vancouver” he’s teasing. And he suggests that the reason relates to its “20 patents.”
“This invention is potentially worth BILLIONS, and no one but this tiny firm from Vancouver is legally allowed to collect all this cash…
Like I said, this whole process is protected by 20 patents. They create an insurmountable legal moat around this invention.”
So to recap… Crystal Surge technology, according to Alex Koyfman, is an invention involving a three-part process of storing solar and wind energy with the help of a “special kind of crystal” (which he also refers to as a “special kind of metal”) that appears to be zinc.
In other words, Crystal Surge technology is a zinc-based battery storage system. And as I’ll now explain, that’s exactly what the company he’s recommending specializes in.
Revealed: Alex Koyfman’s “Crystal Surge” Pick
Alex Koyfman didn’t reveal the name of his pick in the presentation, but he did share numerous clues about it, such as where it’s based (Vancouver), its market cap (around $24 million), and its stock price (less than $1).
Here’s a summary of Koyfman’s clues about the company:
“The Vancouver-based company behind it has been working on it quietly for 13 years.
Scientists and engineers worked in a secret high-tech lab day and night to achieve this breakthrough that’s now protected by 20 patents…”
“The company making this energy revolution possible is still tiny. The stock trades for less than $1.”
“Just recently this firm signed contracts with the New York Power Authority… the University at Buffalo… and a $13 billion commercial real-estate developer.”
“It’s tiny. The stock was trading at a $24 million market cap as of this publication.”
The main clue he shared, however, was an image of the company’s energy storage system, which (after running a Google image search) led me to an article on rechagenews.com about a Canadian startup called Zinc8 Energy Solutions.
And my research suggests that this is Koyfman’s “Crystal Surge” pick.
Why? Because, for starters, the company is based in Vancouver, its market cap is around $22 million as of writing, its stock price is around $0.15 (June 2022), and the clue about the New York Power Authority (and others) seems to line up.
Not to mention, the company site says it has “20 U.S. patents issued.”
And finally, what this company has developed all but confirms this is Koyfman’s pick.
According to the article I just shared, Zinc8 has developed a “zinc-air battery” that doesn’t degrade, can’t explode, and is “up to five times cheaper than lithium-ion.”
And this page on the Zinc8 website explains how its technology works, which in short, involves a three-part process that’s very similar to what Koyfman described.
So, Zinc8 appears to be Koyfman’s “Crystal Surge” pick.
Is the company’s tech really a “breakthrough,” as the presentation suggests?
I’m not an expert on zinc-air battery tech, so I recommend doing your own research on this. But my research suggests that zinc-based batteries are more than a passing fad and could potentially rival lithium-ion batteries in the future.
And this company’s system appears to be mostly geared toward large-scale energy storage, which differs from most “battery breakthrough” companies I’ve seen teased over the past year or so that are working on making tiny solid-state Li-ion batteries.
So it was interesting to learn about it, and the sites I just shared go into more detail on this technology if you want to know more.
What’s the ticker?
Zinc8 trades on the CSE (ticker: ZAIR) and the OTC (ticker: ZAIRF).
Assuming my guess is correct, which I believe it is, it’s unclear what ticker out of those Koyfman is recommending or what his price targets are.
However, one other thing Koyfman mentioned in the presentation was that the company he’s teasing could see “a four- or even five-digit increase” following a “singular event” held by an “industry giant” on July 27.
“Right now, shares trade for less than $1.
However, this price could see a four- or even five-digit increase as the mainstream financial media wakes up to this technology following a singular event held by an industry giant on July 27.”

What’s Happening on July 27?
First and foremost, I suggest taking Koyfman’s “July 27” claim with a grain of salt because nobody knows what will happen with the price of any stock in the future.
However, Alex Koyfman said that July 27, the date of Amazon’s next earnings call, could be when Amazon announces “the mass deployment of Crystal Surge.”
“The day Amazon announces the mass deployment of Crystal Surge, two things will happen:
First, the mainstream will wake up to this opportunity…
And second, shares will skyrocket. That’s the day a small $500 stake could start to turn into $67,975…
And a $7,500 investment could make you a millionaire.
It could unfold as early as July 27.
That’s the date of Amazon’s next earnings call. It’s announced the completion of solar installations during past earnings calls…
So telling investors about the mass deployment of Crystal Surge tech on this occasion would be the next logical step.”
Why does Koyfman believe Amazon is using “Crystal Surge” tech?
The gist of Koyfman’s thesis centers around how Amazon is a large solar power producer with the goal of using 100% renewable energy by 2025. And he believes that “Crystal Surge tech” could be the “crucial piece for Amazon’s clean energy ambitions.”
“You see, I’ve found the ‘smoking gun’ that Crystal Surge tech could be the crucial piece for Amazon’s clean energy ambitions.
I’m talking about a detail in this firm’s financial statements you’d easily miss if you didn’t know what to look out for.
These statements discreetly mention a ‘contract with a cloud data center provider to demonstrate its [Crystal Surge] system.’
The biggest player in the cloud computing world? Amazon.”
It’s unclear exactly what “contract” Alex Koyfman is referring to above or who it involves. However, it’s possible he’s referring to a contract that Zinc8 has signed with one of the leading cloud providers to demonstrate its Zinc-air Energy Storage System.
There’s no mention of who that “leading cloud provider” is, though. Nor is there any proof anywhere that I could find that Amazon is working with this company. And even if there was, that doesn’t mean its shares will “skyrocket” on July 27.
In any case, if you want to know for sure what company Alex Koyfman is teasing and access the complete details of his recommendation, the best thing to do would be to see his report titled “Crystal Surge: Unlocking a $14 Trillion Opportunity.”
How do you get this report?
The only way to access Koyfman’s “Crystal Surge” report is to join his service, Microcap Insider, for $1,999 on the Angel Publishing website.
Should You Join Microcap Insider?
Microcap Insider is an investment research service run by Alex Koyfman of Angel Publishing focused primarily on micro-cap tech and biotech stocks. In other words, tech and biotech stocks with a tiny market cap (typically less than $300 million).
The guy behind it, Alex Koyfman, says that he’s not a “typical investment guru” because he’s never worked for a Wall Street bank or hedge fund.
Instead, he’s a self-taught trader who’s been in the investment research space for around 20 years. I’ve covered numerous stock teasers he’s released, too, and most of his picks that I’ve looked into have centered around small companies in the natural resources space.
How does the service work?
For $1,999, you get 12 months of access to weekly issues of Microcap Insider, where Koyfman shares his research and picks, along with several other resources.
For example, subscribers get access to trade alerts, a member’s website, and research reports he’s put together, breaking down the companies he’s tracking.
As for whether or not you should join, that will depend on things like your goals, budget, preferences, and risk tolerance (among others). Overall, I think it could suit those interested in smaller, more speculative companies. But it’s probably not ideal for more conservative investors, given how volatile microcaps can be.
Alex Koyfman’s “Crystal Surge” presentation centers around a company that he believes has “found the holy grail of the energy industry” and could potentially “generate life-changing 13,495% gains” for investors.
As mentioned, the Crystal Surge technology he appears to be referring to is a zinc-air energy storage system developed by Zinc8 Energy Solutions.
Of course, that’s ultimately just a guess, and I can’t guarantee I’m right, but this looks like the company he’s teasing based on the clues he shared in the presentation.
Either way, I think it goes without saying that there’s no guarantee that Koyfman’s pick, whatever it is, will “make you a millionaire.” So even though I think zinc-air battery technology is super interesting, that doesn’t mean it’s a golden ticket for investors.
