First of all, I’m a brand new member of the Irregulars, having just joined a half hour ago. I’ve been poking around the free membership section for several years just to get a feel for Stock Gumshoe. What prompted the switch to joining the Irregulars was a brand new service being promoted by Motley Food Canada called Crypto Blueprint (retailing for $999 Cdn per year). The service basically covers opportunities in the alternative currency world, but what I didn’t realize until reading their teaser pitch this morning is that there is a lot more to the story–most notably the blockchain ”revolution”. I know nothing about that and have shied away from any consideration of alternative currencies since I don’t believe in them.
What Motley Fool Canada is going to be releasing this coming Tuesday are (and I quote):
3 Stocks that can become Blockchain leaders. These are companies with significant competitive advantages that have begun integrating blockchain into their businesses. We believe they’ll see significant upside in the coming years.
3 Stocks that are ”Picks and Shovels” plays for the coming blockchain revolution, including one stock that could become the ”Intel” of the blockchain age as well as e-commerce and payments plays riding the birth of new digital currencies.
3 Blockchain Expert stocks. Thousands of companies will soon be scrambling to figure out how to integrate blockchain into their businesses — and we’ve uncovered the three leading ”expert” companies they’ll run to with wallets wide open.
There you have it. I’ve no idea if this blockchain business is the next dot.com bubble or whether there’s something to it. I may have been missing the bigger picture by focussing on the currency aspect rather than what Motley Fool is intimating may be the next internet revolution. I may not have dug deep enough, but can’t seem to find an in-depth analysis of blockchain by Travis.
