Bitcoin Group - Around 80% share price increase in one month

Bitcoin Group SE, as a holding company, is mainly involved in innovative and disruptive business models and technologies in the areas of cryptocurrency and blockchain. Core of the Group is the 100% participation in futurum bank AG. Futurum exercises classical investment services and operates a trading place for digital currencies under

One week ago the Group announced to have already reached the self-set annual goal of 900,000 customers on the cryptocurrency trading place as at the beginning of November. The sharp rise in Bitcoin & Co. prices and the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment, in addition to the increasing interest of professional investors in cryptoassets, are among the reasons for this dynamic, according to the Company.

Although the core business as a crypto-bank is mostly independent of the value development of cryptocurrencies, there is a lever in the Company's own stock of cryptoassets. According to a report dated December 1, the Company's stock of cryptocurrencies has exceeded the EUR 60 million mark - more than double the figure at the end of 2019. The Company is currently worth around EUR 260 million on the stock exchange. The triumphal procession of cryptocurrencies sets the course for further growth of the Group.

BIGG Digital Assets - breathtaking dynamics

BIGG Digital Assets Inc. owns the two operating Companies Netcoins and Blockchain Intelligence Group. The overall goal of BIGG Digital Assets is to build an ecosystem for compliant and regulated cryptographic business.

Yesterday, BIGG reported that it increased its Bitcoins inventory by 40 units to 189.5 units. The value of the total inventory, which is to be held long-term, is currently at CAD 4.65 million. The current market value of the Company is approximately CAD 50 million.

Netcoins, a cryptocurrency broker with its software, compliance and security solutions for buying and selling cryptos, reported the day before yesterday a trading volume on the platform in November of 23 million. This figure corresponds to an increase of 60% compared to October and an eightfold increase compared to January! Within 4 weeks the share increased by more than 40%, since the beginning of the year by more than 700%. The trend is your friend!

Deutsche Pfandbriefbank - 60% share price increase within 4 weeks

The Deutsche Pfandbriefbank is proof that investors can make a good cut even with financial stocks that seem "boring" at first glance. In the spring, the share lost around two-thirds of its value and reached a low of around EUR 5.00. In the meantime, the stock market is again calling for more than EUR 9.00. After the quarterly figures, the analysts Kepler Cheuvreux confirmed the "Buy" rating and the target price of EUR 12.00.

Deutsche Pfandbriefbank is a leading European specialist bank for real estate financing and public investment financing. The Group published its figures for the third quarter in mid-November. Although these were only slightly higher than in the previous year at the pre-tax level, they showed that the Group is well-positioned to master even a real estate downturn next year.

Rising share prices in recent weeks reflect the fact that investors believe in the Company's good risk position. At less than EUR 10.00, the stock is moderately valued.

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.
