The Tech That Is Transforming The World December 20, 2017 - Safehaven As investors bide their time, waiting for the first Bitcoin or Ethereum ETF to launch, a much bigger opportunity for profits is quietly slipping away. As we all know, cryptocurrencies are booming. Bitcoin turned a tiny, $100-investment into a whopping $75 million in 7 years, and just this week it hit a record high of over $17,000 per bitcoin. Ethereum has also been on a steady upward trend over the last two years, turning a $100 investment into $94,000. Now, as the first ever bitcoin futures begin to trade, cryptocurrencies are as valuable as they have ever been, and the forward-thinking investors who bought big into Bitcoin are reaping huge rewards. While the bitcoin investment boat may have already set sail, it is likely far from the last huge opportunity in the space. The cryptocurrency and blockchain market is expanding at a significant rate, and there is one unique and simple investment opportunity that could give investors access to the entire space. While Wall Street drags its heels, one Canadian company is breaking away from the mainstream and preparing a unique investment opportunity, one which American investors can get in on too. Global Blockchain Technologies Corp. (TSX: BLOC.V; OTC: BLKCF) is Canada’s first blockchain-focused investment company. Yes, Bitcoin is at an all-time high, but it’s possibly still far from its peak and only makes up a fraction of the blockchain market. Global Blockchain allows investment in blockchain now, before the next wave of money rolls into this booming market. Make no mistake, blockchain is one of the most disruptive financial technologies the market has ever seen. It shows great potential to be the universal and uncontested depository of all transactions between all parties, whether we’re talking money or paperwork. Blockchain is the hub where everything can come together with seamless trust, transparency, efficiency and, more importantly than ever, protection from hackers. Blockchain is poised to transform every major industry, whether it be global shipping, prescription drugs, healthcare, automotive, aviation, manufacturing, banking, finance--and even government. You name it. That’s why Global Blockchain’s plan to take the next evolutionary step, with simplified exposure to both established blue-chip crypto holdings and small-cap high-growth blockchain and crypto-currency potential plays, could lead to major profit in an era of prosperity. As investors scramble, searching for profits amid the market disruption caused by cryptocurrencies, Global Blockchain plans to offer a unique solution. This comes in the form of a basket of holdings that: - Definitively answers massive demand from investors - Will be one of the first way to find and gain exposure to a wide breadth of cryptocurrencies and blockchain companies - Is packaged in a publicly listed security accessible in the U.S., Canada and Europe, with Asia and Australia to follow - Plans to give investors access to ICOs that they would never be able to secure on their own - Is led by major crypto-pioneers who are ready to make the crypto-world a lot less cryptic Here are 5 reasons to keep a close eye on Global Blockchain (TSX: BLOC.V; OTC: BLKCF), an investment company hoping to become the first-ever vertically integrated originator and manager of startup Blockchains and investor in top-tier digital currencies: #1 Blockchain is Set to Disrupt Everything Blockchain is automation and collaboration on steroids, with market growth predictions headed into trillion-dollar territory. The technology isthe backbone of the exploding crypto-currency market, worth a pretty $150 billion today, and up an astounding 800 percent over the first eight months of this year. There’s likely no industry that’s isolated from being disrupted by blockchain technology. - Banking: Seven major global banks have partnered with fintech companies to develop new blockchain technologies, because blockchain and cryptocurrencies simplify so many things in the banking world, from fees for sending payments through middlemen, privacy threats, and security risks to cumbersome lending in the $134-trillion global banking industry. - Global Logistics: Blockchain technology is already being used to track global trade and shipments in this $8-trillion-plus industry. - Real Estate: This $7.4-trillion industry is also a major beneficiary of blockchain tech. Look no further than the real estate mecca of Dubai, which is putting its entire land registry on a blockchain. - Healthcare: The global healthcare IT market, valued at $134 billion last year, is publicly seeking IT solutions from Blockchain. - Crowdfunding: Even this $96-billion market is embracing Blockchain. And the list goes on … “Blockchain solutions in finance are virtually endless...any centralized marketplace that is dominated by a few middle men is likely to be taken over by blockchain technology,” says BLOC Chairman Steve Nerayoff. The opportunities are mind-boggling. #2 Exposure to the a Wide Cross-Section of the Blockchain Ecosystem Global Blockchain (TSX: BLOC.V; OTC: BLKCF) meets existing investor demand with plans to invest in a basket of holdings within the Blockchain space. This innovative strategy would make Global Blockchain the first global investment company with exposure to a wide cross-section of the Blockchain ecosystem—all backed by start-up equity and token diversification. This proposed plan is expected to lead to diversified exposure and lower risk for investors by balancing large cap companies with hand-picked high-growth potential small-caps. Global Blockchain also plans to diversify portfolios by balancing crypto-currencies by category. You can buy it right now from an online broker, and even add it to your IRA or 401K. Here are Global Blockchain’s planned investments: But it’s not just about a basket of currencies to speculate on. It’s about the potential of building an investment portfolio based on the token economy—one of the first of its kind. Here is Global Blockchain’s projected Asset Allocation: #3 Crypto-Pioneers Leading the Innovation The team behind Global Blockchain (TSX: BLOC.V; OTC: BLKCF) qualifies investments for you and buys them as an investment for its portfolio, for reduced uncertainty and minimized risk. Remember the Ethereum ICO? It’s risen over 94,000 percent. Global Blockchain’s Chairman and CEO, Steve Nerayoff, was not only a senior advisor to Ethereum leading up to its ICO, but was the architect of the Ethereum crowsdale, the way the project was funded. He also was a senior advisor to the Lisk Cryptocurrency project, which now has a $526-million market cap. Nerayoff is an early leader of the blockchain industry, and one of its most important pioneers. But Global Blockchain’s doesn’t stop with Nerayoff. - Rik Willard: Cryptocurrency and ICO veteran, co-founder of the Silicon Valley Blockchain Society, and an advisor to Luxembourg and other countries’ Blockchain initiatives. - Shidan Gouran: Cryptocurrency and ICO expert with a long track record. - Kyle Kemper: Executive director of the Blockchain Association of Canada. - Jeff Pulver: Has consulted and invested in 350 startups. - Michael Terpin: Co-founder of BitAngels, the world’s first angel network for digital currency startups, managing partner of bCommerce Labs, the first Blockchain incubator fund in the world. Founded Marketwire, one of the largest company newswires, which was acquired in 2006 by NASDAQ for $200 million. And it’s not just their blockchain successes and expertise investors will be harnessing: It’s their exclusive access to assets investors would have difficulty investing in otherwise. #4 Promising Futures If/when the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approves crypto ETFs, digital currencies will likely push even higher. Some projections show that as much as $300 million could pour into a bitcoin ETF in its first week, Bloomberg reports. Cryptocurrencies are also set to be benefit as futures are launching by CBOE, CME, and NASDAQ. Futures trading is likely to further boost the market, with even more interest and investments flowing. We’re looking at a total current market cap of tokens at $20 billion, and more than $2 billion has already flowed into ICO (initial coin offering) token sales. This is where Global Blockchain (TSX: BLOC.V; OTC: BLKCF) comes into play, with their expertise to make solid decisions on which ICOs have what it takes to be winners, and how to play the futures. And they intend to balance large-cap holdings with small-cap and emerging cryptocurrencies so investors can benefit from the stability of one, and the growth potential of the other at the same time. But it’s also planning to become an incubator for new crypto technologies, which means that investors are not just investing in assets—they’re investing in innovation. #5 More Upside with Global Blockchain Coin Creation Global Blockchain (TSX: BLOC.V; OTC: BLKCF) also plans to create additional value with its own incubator for new tokens, taking advantage of a major gap in the token world. Most new ICOs have one-dimensional teams—they’re developing but not following through in the market. This is where Global Blockchain sees an opportunity. They won’t just help new blockchain companies build; they’ll help brand and distribute. This could be the next phase of maturity in an industry that is lacking development and is being guided by a team with real-world experience, backed by top blockchain programmers in the world. With Global Blockchain providing investors access to a basket of holdings within the blockchain space, managed by a team of industry early adopters and pioneers, investors have a chance to access a market of huge proportions, because Blockchain could affect every industry. New waves of money have been entering this market, and the next wave could be Wall Street hedge funds. After that, possibly ETFs. And then everyone else. Getting ahead of the wave could be possible possible with Global Blockchain’s investment and incubator strategy. Honorable Mentions: The Descartes Systems Group Inc.
