BIGG Digital Assets, Bitcoin Group, Chainalysis - why invest now?

  • Blockchain
Photo credits:

The blockchain hype was around two years ago and a lot has changed since then. A consolidation phase has cleared the market and what has remained are the companies and teams that have been able to convince the market and investors of their products and business models. The interest in the sector is often reinterpreted by market participants into the price development of the most famous crypto-currency. The price of a Bitcoin was quoted in the morning at over USD 10,400.00, the highest level since September 2019, and about two months ago the digital currency changed wallets at less than USD 7,000.00. This volatility enabled a speculative gain of about 50%. But the market offers more.

About the author

Public authorities are among the major customers

BIGG Digital Assets and Chainalysis are among the providers of solutions with which authorities can track down criminal activities. Using different approaches and technologies, the software products of the two companies make it possible to monitor the payment flows of crypto-currencies and to detect possible criminal activities. It is hardly surprising that the customers of these blockchain companies include the US government and its agencies. With lucrative and growing budgets they work hand in hand.

Detection of suspicious activities

Modern technologies enable law enforcement, RegTech, regulatory and government agencies to follow the virtual money. Search algorithms for detecting suspicious activity within transactions with e.g. Bitcoin, Ethereum, ERC20, Litecoin are a helpful tool for investigators and companies. In the fight against terrorist financing, human trafficking, drugs and weapons, child pornography, corruption, bribery, money laundering and other cybercrime, it is important for successful investigation and prevention that transactions can be tracked and monitored quickly.

Turnover is increasing

Lance Morginn of BIGG Digital Assets commented on the recent five-year contract with the US government for CAD 715,000.00: "We are thrilled to have won this contract, enabling us to further cement our US government relationships and demonstrate the value of our products to the US government. This sizable contract follows on the heels of two other customer contracts valued at CAD 389,000.00 and CAD 355,000.00, respectively, attained in Fall 2019 – demonstrating our ongoing gains in market traction. Entering 2020, we have a healthy pipeline of global opportunities and we look forward to updating our investors as we progress."

The private company Chainalysis has received more than USD 10 million from the US government since 2015 for the provision of products. A potential that also exists for the listed company BIGG Digital Assets and the shareholders. The BIGG share has already gained ground.

New revenue streams with business expansion

Bitcoin Group will also benefit from the positive development of the crypto-currency Bitcoin. With the German company is Europe's largest trading place for the crypto currency. However, the Bitcoin Group also continues to develop. Via the wholly-owned subsidiary futurum bank AG, the custody of crypto assets will be offered to institutional customers in the future with the blessing of BaFin. The expansion of business activities opens up new sources of income.

Software AG, Upco International, Moderna - Here's the new WhatsApp!

  • Blockchain

WhatsApp is the world's leading messenger service, with over two billion users chatting, calling and sending photos to each other. However, by announcing that it was changing its privacy policy, the Facebook subsidiary has done itself a disservice. Users are now running away in droves. Competitor Telegram gained over 25 million new users within three days, and Signal was the most downloaded app in the Apple Store. Another company is also benefiting from the WhatsApp debacle, but this one can do much more than just Messenger.

Riot Blockchain, Upco International, Microsoft - Game changer Blockchain - more than just Bitcoin!

  • Blockchain

Blockchain is more than just Bitcoin. This cryptographic chaining process in a decentralized "accounting system" forms the technological basis for the cryptocurrency and allows for other diverse applications. Profound upheavals are on the horizon in many areas of the economy, with currencies, payment services and assets just a few examples. A vast field of application is blockchain-based contracts, so-called smart contracts stored in a programming language. In general, blockchain offers the advantages of tamper-resistance and lower transaction costs, among others. But the technology also comes up against limitations with some adverse side effects such as low efficiency and high energy consumption. Blockchain is not a cure-all, but the market for a wide variety of areas is enormous and enables providers to grow dynamically, sometimes exponentially, in the long term. We introduce you to three profiteers of the blockchain growth trend.

Bitcoin Group, BIGG Digital Assets, Square Inc.- incredible potential!

  • Blockchain

The market penetration of cryptocurrencies and the tokenization of crypto assets are still at an early stage. The benefits of blockchain-based transactions are clear. Bitcoin marked an all-time high last week at USD 41,000, quintupling in 12 months. Professional investors are becoming increasingly interested in the crypto asset class. Ultimately, the triumph of crypto depends on regulators and general acceptance. However, the multi-faceted Group of payment service providers or specialized (software) solution providers are also interesting for investors. After all, these are cutting themselves an ever-larger slice of PayPal's colossal pie. We introduce you to promising companies, some of which are still relatively unknown, that have huge upside potential.
