The crypto world is developing rapidly and with volatility. In the last few weeks, Bitcoin released another wave upwards, and the benchmark coin was worth a whole USD 50,000 again. However, it did not reach its old high of USD 60,000 in the first swing. Then followed the abrupt crash below USD 40,000 within 24 hours. Time and again, disruptive fire comes from China; the regulators have their eye on the miners and tend to want to ban crypto trading. The reasoning: The trades are opaque, enable criminal payments and lead to unwanted shifts in people's wealth. We take a look at companies that are doing well with the crypto world so far.

    Bitcoin Group - Crypto is rising in popularity

    Bitcoin Group SE is a holding company focused on innovative and disruptive business models and cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies. The Group holds 100% of the shares in futurum bank AG, which operates a trading platform for selected digital currencies under Furthermore, it owns 50% of the shares in Sineus Financial Services GmbH, a financial services provider supervised by BaFin.

    Bitcoin Group continues to benefit from the high interest in cryptocurrencies. Although the market was very volatile, especially in the summer, the price quotations of essential coins have continued to rise compared to the Company's update in February 2021. As a result, futurum bank AG's holdings of cryptocurrencies amounted to EUR 182.8 million as of August 30, 2021, up from EUR 170 million in February. In addition, there is a stock of cash and cash equivalents within the Group of about EUR 15 million. Of course, this is only a snapshot but underpins the current price level.

    In an environment of rising uncertainty in the markets and higher inflation, coins are gaining importance, especially when it comes to investing. is a trading platform for crypto assets licensed in Germany with more than one million customers. The cryptocurrencies managed by are almost exclusively held in secure cold wallets, which are disconnected from the Internet.

    The Bitcoin Group share was already at EUR 83.80 in 2021 and subsequently corrected by more than 50%. Currently, it is trading at EUR 38.30, just above your holdings plus cash; the platform and customer base is valued at zero. Collect.

    BIGG Digital Assets - Valuable footholds in the crypto market

    Canadian security and IT firm BIGG Digital Assets Inc. is also very well positioned in the crypto market. On the one hand, the business in the Blockchain Intelligence Group area with software licenses for forensic investigations on the part of public institutions is doing exceptionally well. On the other hand, the Company operates Netcoins, a licensed platform for online crypto trading in Canada. Currently, the Company is seeking full regulation by the Canadian financial regulator.

    At the half-year mark of 2021, proprietary trading in Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies continues to be profitable, which had to lose some ground during the first summer months due to strong price corrections. High-volatility days are usually bad for stock market trades, but for Bitcoin and crypto assets, they cause unprecedented trading volumes, inducing sharply rising revenues even as assets temporarily trend downward. Netcoins sit in the middle of these trading flows!

    The current figures as of June 30, 2021, thus show explosive growth compared to the previous year. Revenue increased to CAD 4.55 million with a focus on the Netcoins subsidiary, and this is 24% more than the previous quarter and over 2000% of the prior year when the numbers were, of course, still very low. The number of active customers rose to 19,000, again up 40% on the previous quarter. With its treasury, the Group has now accumulated various coins worth CAD 65 million and counting. For the first time, BIGG also achieved black figures based on adjusted EBITDA. In our opinion, the growth phase is far from over.

    BIGG's stock has retreated significantly since its April 2021 high of over CAD 5 and currently costs CAD 1.04. We feel that a good CAD 200 million market capitalization is far more appropriate than the hype prices with billion-dollar valuations in the spring. Now it is also possible to get in cheaply again!

    Coinbase - Plans for crypto lending platform withdrawn

    Coinbase Global Inc. has put its plans to launch its "Lend" program on hold following pressure from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The decision comes weeks after a public dispute between Coinbase and the SEC over the matter. Lend was supposed to allow users to earn interest by lending crypto assets. This very innovative bank-like business idea could not be approved by regulators in the US, as this is where oversight would likely reach its limits.

    Following the recent news, Coinbase has also discontinued the waiting list for this program. The Company claims that hundreds of thousands of customers from across the country had signed up for the program. The decision to put Lend on hold is a major blow to the crypto trader, as it was intended to expand and diversify its product base. The SEC now seems to have woken up and, under its new chairman, Gary Gensler, has announced that it will continue to crack down on the crypto market.

    Coinbase shares had started with great success on the stock market in May, reaching a high of USD 429. Even at the current price of USD 241, the market capitalization is still at USD 50.8 billion. The stock has a 2021 P/E of 30 and a price-to-sales ratio of 10. Of 23 analysts, 13 recommend buying the Company, and the median price target is USD 377 - that would be a possible 50% upside as of today.

    The companies under review here operate in the cryptocurrency environment. As such, they are part of a new digital investment world that has now achieved great significance as an asset class. Bitcoin Group and Coinbase specialize in trading and offer successful platforms. As a holding company, BIGG Digital Assets Inc. covers trading and proprietary trading and provides a tool for forensic investigations with its QLUE software.

    It happened over the weekend: USD 70,000 - and no end in sight for Bitcoin? A never-ending rally seems to be taking its course after the cryptocurrency turned upwards at USD 25,000 last September. Will the upswing continue unabated? Due to the upcoming halving in April, this could continue for a few more weeks, with the crypto following growing daily.

    Cardiol Therapeutics, Bayer, Coinbase - Which share will generate profits in the long term?

    • Biotechnology
    • Pharma
    • crypto

    The world of pharmaceuticals and life sciences is characterized by precisely documented studies in clinical research. If an active ingredient makes it to approval, there is the potential for a blockbuster worth billions. Cardiol Therapeutics has an active ingredient in the second phase of clinical research for the treatment of heart disease in people under 35 years of age. This active ingredient can also restore the quality of life of 26 million people worldwide who suffer from heart failure. Bayer continues to clean up the unresolved issues left behind by the former CEO. Did the weedkiller RoundUp® from the Monsanto deal possibly lead to improper treatment due to a lack of consumer protection information? The five-figure lawsuits still pending against Roundup are dampening the share's profit prospects. The situation is currently quite different in the cryptocurrency market. Bitcoin is outperforming everyone, and the Coinbase share is benefiting from it. Which investment generates profits in the long term?

    • RareEarths

    • AI
    • Electromobility

    The demand for critical metals is increasing rapidly worldwide. From growing digitalization to the increased use of cryptocurrencies and AI, from advances in medical technology to electromobility and defense technology - all these areas rely on these critical raw materials. Defense Metals Corporation is an experienced explorer in British Columbia whose Wicheeda project is designed to provide these critical metals. Forward-thinking companies like the crypto exchange Coinbase serve many users who use rare earth metals to power their hard drives for crypto mining. Volkswagen also requires this raw material because car consumers in China have very different needs when it comes to vehicle software than those in the European market. A new CEO for the subsidiary and software company CARIAD knows exactly what needs to be done...
