Many investors, waiting for the first Bitcoin or Ethereum ETF to launch, are sadly missing out on once-in-a-lifetime profits. Bitcoin turned a $100-investment into $75 million in 7 years, and it’s risen from $1,000 per coin to over $4,800 just this year. Ethereum is up over two years, turning a $100 investment in to $94,000.
Finally, investors don’t have to miss out on these potential profits. Now there’s a unique investment opportunity to add these cryptocurrencies and other new blockchain technologies to any brokerage accounts, IRA or 401k ... today.
While Wall Street drags its heels... one company trading in Canada is intending on surging into cryptocurrencies, and American investors can get it on it, too.

Global Blockchain Technologies Corp (TSX: BLOC.V; OTC: BLKCF) just announced trading of Canada’s first blockchain-based investment company. And it allows you to invest in Blockchain now, before the next wave of money comes into a market that looks set to reach trillions.
Blockchain technology is the most disruptive financial technology the market has ever seen. It’s got the potential to be the universal, irrefutable depository of all transactions between all parties involved, whether it’s money or paperwork. It links everything to everything else. It’s about seamless trust, transparency, efficiency and—importantly—protection from hackers.
Blockchain technology has the potential to transform every industry from global shipping, prescription drugs and healthcare to automotive, aviation, manufacturing, banking, finance--and even government.
The bottom line is this: The age of prosperity can be found in a Blockchain script, and Global Blockchain has announced its business plan to take the next evolutionary step: It’s simplified exposure to both established blue-chip crypto holdings and small-cap high-growth blockchain and crypto-currency potential plays.
As investors scramble for a way to profit from this massive market disrupter, Global Blockchain plans to offer the first real solution: a basket of holdings within the blockchain and crypto-currency space that:
• Definitively answers massive demand from investors
• Will be the first—and so far only—way to find and navigate exposure to this extremely complicated space
• Is a publicly listed security accessible in the U.S., Canada and Europe that can be bought through an online broker, with Asia and Australia to follow
• Plans to give investors access to ICOs that they would never be able to access on their own
• Is led by major crypto pioneers who just took the cryptic out of the crypto world
Here are 5 reasons to keep a close eye on Global Blockchain (TSX: BLOC.V; OTC: BLKCF), an investment company poised to become the first-ever vertically integrated originator and manager of startup Blockchains and digital currencies, and investor in top-tier existing ones.
#1 Blockchain Could Disrupt Everything
Blockchain is automation and collaboration on steroids. It is the biggest thing to come out of technology—ever. It could be bigger than the Internet of Things. Its market growth predictions are headed into trillion-dollar territory.
There’s almost no industry that may not be disrupted by blockchain technology.
• Banking: blockchain and cryptocurrency solve a ton of problems with the $134-trillion global banking industry. Blockchain solves everything from fees for sending payments through middlemen, privacy threats and security risks to cumbersome lending. That’s why seven major global banks have just partnered with fintech companies to develop new blockchain technology.
• Blockchain technology is already being used to track global trade and shipments in this $8-trillion-plus industry.
• The global healthcare IT market along—a market valued at $134 billion last year– is seeking an IT cure from Blockchain.
• Even the $96-billion crowdfunding market is expected to embrace Blockchain whole-heartedly.
And the list goes on …
“Blockchain solutions in finance are virtually endless, and the gaming industry, too, will be massive. But the verticals here are astounding. Imagine creating a protocol for diamond trading, or renewable energy credits,” says BLOC Chairman Steve Nerayoff. “Any centralized market place that is dominated by a few middle men is likely to be taken over by blockchain technology. Anything you can think of where the marketplace can become more democratic.”
Imagine someone creates renewable energy credits in the Middle East – and someone in China wants to buy those credits to offset their electricity and sell it as clean electricity. The expense of the accounting and middle man fees in that case would often be far too expensive to justify such a transaction. If it is all automated through smart contracts however, it may become possible to do that instantly at a small price.
The opportunities are mind-boggling, but so is figuring out where to put your money.
#2 Only Company That Plans to Have Exposure to the Entire Blockchain System
Global Blockchain (TSX: BLOC.V; OTC: BLKCF) responds to existing investor demand with its plans to invest in a basket of holdings within the Blockchain space, which if successful would make it the first global investment company with exposure to the entire Blockchain system—and with start-up equity and token diversification.
You can buy it right now from an online broker, and even add it to your IRA or 401K.
If Global Blockchain carries out its plans, it diversifies your exposure to lower risk for investors, by balancing large cap companies with specifically chosen high-growth potential small-caps. Blockchain Global also plans to diversify portfolios by balancing crypto currencies by category: here are their planned investments:

But it’s not just about a basket of currencies to speculate on. It’s much more than that: It’s a technology company with massive potential, planning to build an investment portfolio based on the token economy. And it’s likely the only public company of its kind.
The opportunities here are much bigger than simply holding crypto currencies. The Global Blockchain business model is about creating protocols.
It’s all about smart asset allocation that has the potential to change this space entirely for investors: here is Blockchain Global’s projected Asset Allocation:

#3 Top Crypto Pioneers Lead This Innovation
No other market requires the level of experience that Blockchain does just to attempt to invest in something that really qualifies.
Remember the Ethereum ICO? It’s risen over 94,000 percent. Global Blockchain’s Chairman and CEO, Steve Nerayoff not only was a senior advisor to Ethereum in the time leading to its ICO, but was the architect of the Ethereum crowsdale, the way the project was funded. He also was a senior advisor to the Lisk Cryptocurrency project, which is now a $526-million market cap company. Nerayoff is an early leader of the blockchain industry, and one of its most important pioneers.
But the Global Blockchain prowess doesn’t stop with Nerayoff.
• Rik Willard, is another cryptocurrency and ICO veteran, the co-founder of the Silicon Valley Blockchain Society and advisor to Luxembourg and other countries’ Blockchain initiatives.
• Shidan Gouran is also a cryptocurrency and ICO expert with a long track record.
• Kyle Kemper is the executive director of the Blockchain Association of Canada.
• Jeff Pulver on the Advisory Board has consulted and invested in 350 startups.
• Michael Terpin on the Advisory Board is the co-founder of BitAngels, the world’s first angel network for digital currency startups. He’s also the managing partner of bCommerce Labs, the first Blockchain incubator fund in the world. He founded Marketwire, one of the largest company newswires, which was acquired in 2006 and sold to NASDAQ for $200 million.
And it’s not just their blockchain successes and expertise investors will be harnessing: It’s their exclusive access to assets investors would never be able to invest in otherwise.
#4 Smart Crypto Balancing Act
If the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approves crypto ETFs, it will likely push digital currencies even higher, with some analysts predicting that as much as $300 million could pour into a bitcoin ETF in its first week, Bloomberg reports.
Europe also has a Bitcoin exchange traded note (ETN) for investors, and analysts are widely expecting the SEC to approve a Bitcoin ETF soon.
One of the biggest hints is the tapping of the lawyer for one of the three proposed ETFs to head the SEC’s division in charge of EFTs. The same lawyer represents the Winklevoss twins’ efforts to create a Bitcoin ETF.
The SEC rejected the Winklevoss ETF in March, but now regulators have agreed to hear an appeal—and with their own lawyer at the helm, analysts are optimistic on a green light.
This team knows blockchain and crypto currencies. This team has the experience to make the best decisions on which ICOs have what it takes to be winners; and which are likely to fail. And they intend to balance large-cap holdings with small-cap and emerging cryptocurrencies so investors can benefit from the stability of one, and the growth potential of the other at the same time.
But it’s also planning to become an incubator for new crypto technologies, which means that investors are not just investing in assets—they’re investing in innovation.
#5 More Upside with Global Blockchain Coin Creation
Global Blockchain (TSX: BLOC.V; OTC: BLKCF) also plans to create additional value with its own incubator for new tokens. That’s because it sees a major gap in the token world: New ICOs have teams that are only one-dimensional—they’re developing but not following through in the market. Global Blockchain is planning to pick up the slack here. They won’t just help new blockchain companies build, they’ll help brand and distribute.
This is the next phase of maturity in an industry that is starving for a development lab that is run by a team with real world experience, and backed by the top blockchain programmers in the world.
Where Wall Street is slow, crypto investing is high-speed. The potential growth of crypto-currency and blockchain and token companies outpaces anything we’ve ever seen, so it’s a game for early-in investment. Until now, that’s been practically impossible because most investors don’t have enough expertise to qualify them.
With a new investment company providing investors access to a basket of holdings within the blockchain space, managed by a team of industry early adopters and pioneers in Global Blockchain, listed on the Toronto, Frankfurt and Australian stock exchanges, investors finally have a chance to access a market that promises to be bigger than any industry because it could affect every industry.
New waves of money are about to enter this market, and the next wave is Wall Street hedge funds. After that, possibly ETFs. And then everyone else. Getting ahead of the wave is now possible with Global Blockchain’s ‘ investment and incubator strategy.
This is the back door to the Blockchain of Things (BoT), and it’s the back door to the tech that’s likely going to change the world.
5 Other tech companies changing the world we live in:
Shopify Inc (TSX:SH) (NYSE:SHOP) is a Canadian e-commerce company with more than 500,000 companies rely on Shopify’s real-time e-commerce, including Tesla, Budweiser and Red Bull, among many others. Shopify manages their e-commerce machines, and its stock is now up to over $106 right now, with a market cap of over $10 billion. CNET called the application “clean, simple, and easy-to-use" in a review of the Shopify platform.
The company’s online presence and sheer reach make it an ideal buy for investors. Shopify makes purchasing goods and services easy for anyone – and in a time where convenience is king, Shopify surely has staying power.
Celestica Inc. (TSE:CLS.TO) (NYSE:CLS) is a manufacturer of electrical devices used in IT, telecommunications, healthcare, defense and aerospace industries. The company has seen strong growth YoY which we expect to continue as the sales expectations are almost 3% better than last year’s.
While many investors thought the stock was overvalued after a stellar run in 2016, the recent correction and volatility in the stock has attracted new buyers and the stock has recovered since.
While telecommunications stocks have been volatile recently, defense, IT and aerospace industries have outperformed and while many see limited upside, these industries continue to surprise both investors and analysts.
Zynga Inc (NASDAQ:ZNGA): Mobile gaming is one of the fastest growing parts of the gaming industry, with an increasingly broad range of consumers. Zynga is taking advantage of this growth, having already produced some of the most popular games out there – most notably, Farmville and Words With Friends.
As this industry grows and becomes increasingly intertwined with social media and the everyday life of the everyday individual, the value of companies like Zynga is on its way up.
It has been a strong year so far for Zynga, with continued upward growth – and as competition heats up, it is sure to be these big names that reap the benefits of the ever-growing gaming industry.
Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN) is an emerging tech company specializing in defense and other government markets. Raytheon’s major selling point is its strong command of cybersecurity. While its specialty is in government-centric markets, Raytheon also develops products, services, and solutions in various other markets.
Raytheon reach is far reaching and its potential market share is huge. Smart investors are looking toward cybersecurity firms early. With the recent high-profile attacks, and likely more to come, cybersecurity companies will be the saving grace of the tech boom.
Snap Inc. (NYSE:SNAP) To much fanfare, Snap IPO’ed earlier this year and managed to surprise many analysts. Snap Inc. operates as a camera company. It offers Snapchat, a camera application that helps people to communicate through short videos and images. The company also provides a suite of content tools for partners to build, edit, and publish snaps and attachments based on editorial content.
The company IPO’ed at $17 and quickly saw its share price reach $25, before falling back to IPO levels and below. While snapchat continues to look for ways to innovate, investor sentiment in this stock has soured and some now see it as a ‘dead stock walking’
