BIGG Digital Assets, Lufthansa, Ballard Power - Breakthrough achieved!
Table of contents:
A player with many footholds
The share of BIGG Digital Assets was able to benefit from the positive basic sentiment in recent weeks. The share price of the Canadian Company more than tripled from CAD 0.13 to currently CAD 0.47. The stock market value is now the equivalent of EUR 50.7 million. Although the hype around Bitcoin, Etherum & Co. provided tailwind, the Company's fundamental development was the decisive point for the strong performance. In this context, BIGG stands on two pillars.
Sales of the internally developed crypto platform, Netcoins, have increased by more than 700% to over CAD 25 million since the beginning of the year. At Netcoins, the goal is to become the first certified trading platform in all of Canada. The registration application is underway. A positive sign should give the stock another significant boost.
Security in cryptos
The accusation that cryptocurrencies are not secure and are used for unclean transactions is to be combated by the Blockchain Intelligence Group division with its QLUE software. Here, suspicious monetary transactions are tracked and traced.
It examines where the funds in question come from, where they go, and the profiles of the entities involved with greater forensic depth. Customers of the software include law enforcement agencies, banks and exchanges. Long-term contracts were signed this year with US Homeland Security and the US Department of Justice.
In late November, Canadians closed a heavily oversubscribed private placement. The gross proceeds were USD 6.9 million. Here, much of the fresh money will be used to further development and research, expand the sales and marketing teams for BIGG international and Netcoins domestically, provide additional liquidity to handle trading in Netcoins, and increase the long-term Bitcoin investment portfolio.
Currently, BIGG Digital Assets holds 189.5 bitcoin in its own portfolio. Although the young Company's share price has risen sharply, its broad positioning offers good opportunities in the long term.
Lucrative follow-up order
The partnership between Belgian bus manufacturer Van Hool and Ballard Power Systems continues to expand. The volume to date has included the supply of FC modules for more than 100 buses already in use in Germany, France, Denmark and Belgium. Now Ballard Power has received a follow-up order to supply additional fuel cell modules for ten H2 buses to be deployed in Emmen, the Netherlands, from 2022 as part of the JIVE 2 support program.
Ballard plans to deliver the ten FC modules to Van Hool in 2021. The manufacturer will install them in hydrogen buses of the type A330, which will be used from 2022. In the meantime, Shell is building a hydrogen filling station and a 10 MW electrolysis plant on site for the on-site production of green hydrogen.
Better than expected
Lufthansa was able to exit trading yesterday with a significant gain of over 5% and crack the EUR 10 mark. The reason for this was the positive statements made by Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr. In this way, the cost side could be brought under control better than expected during the ongoing Corona pandemic.
Of the EUR 9 billion in aid provided by the four home countries of Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium, only EUR 3 billion has been drawn. "With around EUR 10 billion in available liquidity and sufficient balance sheet reserves, I can rule out over-indebtedness from today's perspective," Spohr said.
