The winds of change have become storm forces. The bitcoin craze approached the end of last year, culminating in the bitcoin futures trade. Hysteria has calmed down a bit and the words of blockchain, cryptocurrency and bitcoins have slowly disappeared from the headlines. Until now …
The next phase in bitcoin is the legitimization of the asset class and the spread of blockchain technology. Behind the latest market news on historical highs and trade wars with China, the land grabbing in the blockchain world has begun. It is not companies that change their names to attract new investors, they are established industries that use technology to cut costs, improve margins and increase profits. Huge companies like Walmart, UnitedHealth and BMW have adapted blockchain technology to meet their needs. Even the famous Goldman Sachs has announced that it will have a cryptocurrency trading counter. When Goldman gives his stamp of approval, it means that you have arrived. Now the Chicago Board of Options Exchange has laid the groundwork for another cryptual-based futures contract, this time with Ethereum. The revolution has just begun.
In this article, I will ensure that you do not hurt yourself chasing false blockchain companies and instead, direct you to investment ideas that are still fundamentally sound and built around real, sustainable businesses. Legitimacy is the new word of order that surrounds the bitcoin a day today. He has the power to take everyday businesses and turn them into the next big thing.
When examining the cryptocurrency ecosystem, it turns out that there are many ways to invest in the blockchain. We can divide these stocks into different categories.
1) The "Plectrums and Aces" and the Miners
During the gold rush, those who got rich were the ones who sold the choices and the axes. That is, the companies that provided the tools for speculators to go out and try to find their fortunes. In the world of cryptocurrencies, this refers to companies that produce chips and hardware used for data mining operations. Examples include a series of semiconductor companies.
Then there are the miners themselves. Miners confirm node-to-node transactions by solving the cryptographic problem and are then rewarded in cryptocurrency units. We are already seeing listed companies that "my" cryptocurrency. These companies extrapolate the currency, then sell it immediately on the open market and pass on the gains to shareholders. Think of them as you would with a pipeline in the energy sector. These companies are small now, but could become much bigger over time.
2) Cloud infrastructure
No other industry has been so dependent on the cloud for its development as it did blockchain. The need to distribute a ledger throughout the world, without centralized control of ownership or authority, plays in the strengths of the cloud. However, the cloud is still at risk here, as blockchain technology can distribute storage around the world, fighting the centralized nature of traditional cloud services. However, this sector can adapt technology to benefit.

3) Processing and lending of payments
Among the The most disruptive industries for blockchain is the processing of payments. Rather than your traditional financial intermediary, blockchain technology allows a distributed, open public register, where transactions are confirmed by other nodes in the chain at a much lower price than typical commissions deriving from more traditional processors.
Blockchain technology also perfect for lending, allowing a lender to spread his or her risk on thousands of loans in an instant, regardless of the size of the lender. We are just at the tip of the iceberg in this arena.
4) Investors, business development and consulting companies
There will be a wave of companies looking for ways to incorporate blockchain technology into their existing businesses. Large consulting firms are already starting to offer services that help companies integrate new technology. Gartner even developed a site dedicated to this purpose.
Some publicly traded companies are acting as incubators for other budding cryptocurrencies. There are currently over 1,600 other cryptocurrencies in the world. These investors and business development companies invest in promising cryptographic companies before they reach the mainstream
5) Futures and ETF
The legitimacy of Bitcoin continues while futures contracts have begun to negotiate on two big bags in the United States. Soon there will also be officially regulated ETFs for Bitcoin and Ethereum. In the meantime, investors used GBTC as a proxy. As mentioned earlier, Goldman Sachs will soon open its trading desk, adding further legitimacy to cryptocurrencies as an asset class.
There is no doubt that blockchain will have a tremendous impact on almost every industry you can think of. And as exciting (if not unnerving) as the growth of Bitcoin was in 2017, I see an even greater potential for blockchain in the months and years to come. In fact, experts predict that space could increase + 8,500% by 2024.
Just like the beginnings of the Internet, some companies are achieving huge gains. Others will not pass the test of time. This is what makes our latest portfolio of services so special Blockchain Innovators . We have developed the tricks to discover the strong, often little known companies that drive blockchain technology.
At the moment, we are holding a selection of titles from the groups I have listed above. We are aiming for big gains without speculating on cryptocurrencies. Also, on Tuesday morning I will add 2 more titles with explosive growth potential, and only a limited number of investors will share them.
The former is a high-tech business service provider who has recently started working on his first blockchain product. If they announce this product at their annual conference later this month, the stock may be ticking off like Apple after an iPhone event.
The latter has long been a leader in the payment processing / loan category we talked about earlier. This company is working with a huge blockchain payment solution provider to further drive innovation in this space.
