CORAL GABLES, FL / ACCESSWIRE / August 3, 2018 / The breakdown of consumer internet stocks Facebook, Twitter and Netflix have resulted in a number of investors running scared of technology that has actually done well over the past 12 months. But this may cost them greatly as some analysts point out.
"Great opportunities can surface when investors overreact to short-term setbacks for companies. That has happened with Amazon.com and Google (Alphabet) countless times just in the nine years I've been managing the portfolio," stated Ken Allen, manager of T. Rowe Price's Communications and Technology Fund. But when investors look at being on the cutting edge at times when companies like Facebook changed online engagement through social media or how Netflix has demonstrated its uncanny ability to reface streaming media, new technologies like AI and blockchain tech could be next in focus.
Companies like Block One Capital, Inc. (BKPPF) have a diversified basket of investments in the blockchain tech industry. Block One is an investment company focused on high growth opportunities in the blockchain and cryptocurrency sector. Most recently the company announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Affirmation Technology Group LLC to acquire 30% of the New York, USA based developer of decentralized anti-money laundering, know your customer and Accredited Investor solutions.
The company released an update this week to discuss the expansion of its operating arms. The company's investment, Finzat is scheduled to open discussions before year-end with a European headquartered international financial management concern servicing hundreds of institutional clients around the globe. In addition, Block One updated on its investment into one of the most successful ICO's in North America.
Block One believes its investment in Shopin reflects strong value creation for its shareholders as the original USD$750,000 participation with 66% bonus tokens is now valued at close to USD $2,000,00, reflecting a return of nearly 2.5 times its original investment. Shopin was the Winner of Best ICO at the North American Bitcoin Conference and the Winner Best ICO at the CoinAgenda Bitcoin/Cryptocurrency investing conference.
