Blockchain technology, bitcoin, ethereum; they’re all in the news right now and there’s no end in sight. Some thought of this as a fad but now actual governments are staking claim to their own piece of the cryptocurrency pie. New ICO’s are popping up left and right. “Crypto Fever” is upon us and now it’s time to take full advantage
How Can Investors Profit From The Crypto Craze?
But the question now is, “How?” Some of the biggest risks right now besides the volatility within the space have a lot to do with the exchanges and massive breaches in security. To the novice crypto trader, you would presume that any exchange would be good to throw your money into but then again, the people who thought that with Bithumb got a rude awakening after tens of thousands of accounts were hacked!
The biggest disadvantage right now is that many people understand the stock market but the masses still have yet to grasp the opportunity with cryptocurrencies like bitcoin or ethereum. But that may all be set to change especially with companies like Global Blockchain Technology Corp (BLKCF), for example. The company is taking the mystery out of the market; it has built a team of well-seasoned advocates, and is targeting some of the largest wealth drivers in the digital currency market.
Unlike other “bitcoin companies,”Global Blockchain Technology Corp (BLKCF) is gaining direct exposure to some of the biggest booms in crypto, to date, including the booming sub-sector of initial coin offerings or “ICOs.” They’re aiming to become the world’s first publicly traded company that invests in vertically integrated originators and managers of top tier blockchains and digital currencies.
The cryptocurrency climate has seen enormous expansion since its early days: over a dozen other cryptocurrencies hold market capitalizations at or above $1 billion, while the total market cap for the space as a whole sits at well over $100 billion., This has been a major wake-up call for the fintech world and for “old school” investors alike. It now is not a matter of if but a matter of when the cryptocurrency market will reach new highs.
No matter how questionable the industry is perceived, not even negative comments from big bank leaders like Jamie Dimon or threats from the Chinese government to close exchanges can stop the momentum that crypto has right now.
“The Time Is Now”
A saying we hear all to often but when you look at the landscape, it seems very relevant. Those who thought of bitcoin as just a fad back in 2009 and 2010 are kicking themselves now. Just bitcoin alone has increased from about $0.30 in 2011 to all time highs this year of nearly $6,000!
Some of the biggest moves in cryptocurrency have been made very recently as well and other cryptocurrencies are following suite. Companies have now started to create their own tokens based on some of the original crypto’s like bitcoin and ethereum, in order to raise capital. This is all something that began to catch traction in 2017.
$100 In Bitcoin In 2011 Now Worth Over $1.87 Million Today!
So when we talk about the saying of “The time is now,” can you really argue with it? Beyond disruption, the actual ways that cryptocurrency can be accessed, mined, or traded, in particular blockchain technology and ICOs, are changing the landscape for businesses across the global fintech world.
Not only are these the latest trending topics across the technology sector, the global crypto-powered ecosystem is uniquely set up to reshape the way people transact business and interact in the global commercial market. I’m talking about enabling new channels to power small business growth, employee payroll networks, B2B and D2C transactions, as well as equity and debt financing.
The crypto-enabled marketplace is next to turn the financial world on its head!, Many investors and consumers are already taking note — with returns upwards of 2000% alongside the additional value of investment liquidity,. Investors looking at crypto right now aren’t just geeks looking to cash in but VCs and hedge funds making their next move to build real wealth!
Global Blockchain Technology Corp (BLKCF) has placed itself at the epicenter of this move. The company is providing investors access to a basket of holdings within the blockchain space, managed by an expert team of industry pioneers…and the best part is, you don’t need any special accounts either; it can be bought right now from an online broker, or even put in an investment account like an IRA or 401(k).
Global Blockchain Technology Corp (BLKCF)’s basket will give investors access to blue chip crypto holdings like Bitcoin and Ethereum, access to coveted pre-ICO financing and ICO financing, and even blockchain startups, developed with the assistance of Global Blockchain’s in-house studio for decentralized application development.
It is no secret that Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have been struggling to receive approval from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission this year. But Global Blockchain has now taken the same idea of a fund and packaged it into a single security for investors who are hungry for mass exposure to cryptocurrencies!

Nothing Like It In The Current Marketplace, Just Look At What’s Out There!
Of course there are other public companies that have chosen to target this market but none have looked to gain exposure to cryptcurrenies in the way that Global Blockchain has. Most have looked to mining or to simply target the exchange route for a chance at a small slice of this market. Take MGT Capital (MGTI) for instance.
The company has been working to build out its footprint in bitcoin mining. In a recent press release, the company’s management said, “We have been running at breakneck speed to achieve a substantial expansion of our Bitcoin mining footprint, and it’s time for a comprehensive summary.”
One big issue to this model of mining only is that it is very cash intensive. To buy the “rigs” to mine the actual cryptocurrency and to build the site for massive mainframes to be built out, not to mention the immense costs to power these facilities can be a major burden on any company.
Cash burn becomes a huge problem. Even with a projected $2million in revenue a month, MGT is expecting more than half of that to be a cost of doing businesses at an ongoing rate.
Overstock.com (OSTK) has found itself wrapped into this arena through utilizing cryptocurrency for purchases on its site. Overstock—a popular online store that sells everything from furniture to bedding—announced it will begin accepting payment via Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, and every other major digital currency as payment from customers. But does not necessarily offer direct exposure for investors.
The bottom line is that it’s an e-commerce company and its blockchain investment is only a small part of the company’s model. Nevertheless, the crypto craze has helped boost prices of Overstock shares to new highs this year at nearly $40.
What it has also helped to do is secure the future potential of cryptocurrency as a viable means for conducting real transactions for goods and services. This could be a key tipping point to further legitimize digital currencies entirely!
The fact of the matter is that many of the stocks out there that offer some kind of exposure to cryptocurrency have very limited exposure, meaning that if the price of bitcoin or other crypto’s increases, that doesn’t necessarily directly impact the company. Comparably speaking, Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC) is one of the only other real pure plays in the marketpace for crypto.
Bitcoin Investment Trust is a private, open-ended trust that is invested exclusively in bitcoin and derives its value solely from the price of bitcoin. It enables investors to gain exposure to the price movement of bitcoin without the challenge of buying, storing, and safekeeping bitcoins. Then again, the price per share is north of $690 at the moment.
One Of The Only Pure Plays In Crypto?
Global Blockchain Technology Corp (BLKCF) has targeted a rapidly growing niche and is directly investing in some of the world’s biggest opportunities in cryptocurrency. In fact, the company has already presented that roughly 75% of its total holdings are in some of the largest cryptocurrencies in circulation right now.
The fact that not only are there very few other public companies directly involved with cryptocurrency and that most have no direct correlation to investing into actual coins suggests that sooner, not later, should be the time to find opportunity and Global Blockchain Technology (BLKCF) could be doing just that!
Unlike novice investors into blockchain or new ICOs, the company’s focus is to invest in only tokens, which solve real problems that can benefit from decentralization:
- Utility tokens that have strong technological fundamentals, real and substantial community currencies
- Security tokens which would be treated as any traditional equity investment by our team and meet the same standards of evaluation and rigor of traditional securities analysis
- Best of breed cryptocurrencies that have proven themselves for long term value
- Seed stage equity investment in ventures that are a good fit for decentralization, the token economy and the ICO fundraising mode
Global Blockchain Technology Corp (BLKCF) will help incubate portfolio ventures and structure all aspects of their ICO including business development, legal, marketing and blockchain technology development. What that could mean is uncapped potential for continued growth!
The cryptocurrency craze may be just in its infancy and with the world eyeing the next big disruptor for the financial markets, investors are scrambling for a seat at the table. Limited exposure has meant limited opportunity for many public companies but now, Global Blockchain may be positioning for a “right place, right time” scenario.
If Global Blockchain Technology Corp (BLKCF) sees the kind of success they anticipate there could be immense opportunity with numerous ICOs and other unique currencies for a diversified grouping of assets.
Those who are looking at the company early on may be set to have the biggest advantage – even before major funds catch on! The only question you need to answer for yourself, “Is now the time to have this stock in your crypto portfolio?”
