BIGG Digital Assets: When a growth machine goes mainstream

When new technology catches on, regulation tends to lag behind. In the financial sector, the relevant authorities must approve new products or processes. Otherwise, investors quickly find themselves operating in a gray area. Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies have been experiencing increasing regulation for several years. Nerds and activists of the first hour fear the independence of the currencies, and investors see the chance for new investment opportunities. In some cases, crypto is already considered a new asset class today. Canadian blockchain company BIGG Digital Assets received welcome news from Canadian regulators today. Netcoins, BIGG's wholly-owned subsidiary, became a regulated crypto exchange in Canada today. This makes BIGG Digital Assets the only listed Company in Canada to offer access to a regulated trading venue for digital currencies based on blockchain technology. So what does this mean for the stock?

Netcoins as a regulated growth powerhouse

The Company emphasizes that it has more extensive opportunities to actively promote its trading venue thanks to the trading license. Also, word from Canada is that unregulated competitors are facing increasing headwinds. This mixed situation should accelerate the growth of Netcoins even more. Already in the past months, the platform has steadily developed and is consistently growing in double digits. In the second quarter alone, Netcoins made 24% more revenue. Measured against the previous year, the growth amounts to around 2,000%. In the second quarter, the number of users climbed by as much as 40% compared to the previous quarter. For the year as a whole, the number of users increased by an impressive 1,880%.

Security business alone is a million-dollar business

With regulators now giving BIGG the green light and BIGG being a regulated crypto exchange in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, professional market participants, in particular, are likely to opt for Netcoins. Since the license also comes with the possibility of extensive marketing efforts, retail investors who previously had no points of reference to cryptocurrencies should also become more aware of Netcoins. For BIGG's stock, today's news is a milestone. Having a regulated trading venue in its portfolio should also boost its other businesses, which offer transaction security and methods for regulatory oversight of the crypto market. Just recently, Mastercard reached out to a direct competitor of BIGG and acquired the Company. Although the parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price, there is much to suggest that the price is at least in the range of BIGG Digital Assets' current market capitalization of around EUR 180 million.

  • crypto

FinTech and crypto are defining investment themes of today. Even though there are now efforts by politicians to curb or regulate cryptocurrencies, they will remain part of our everyday lives in the long run. For cryptos to be usable by the broad population, it is essential to make them easy and safe to trade and use as a means of payment. That requires certified trading platforms and reliable payment service providers. These are not the only ones who will benefit from the development; hardware manufacturers are also in great demand.

Bitcoin is alive! September was a month of oblivion for crypto disciples; however, last week saw a solid upward momentum. The lead cryptocurrency gained nearly 20% despite more negative voices from the Chinese regulatory camp, and the altcoins followed suit. Technical analysts who subscribe to the Elliott Wave theory now see the start of a third wave underway, which should take prices to new highs.

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.
