36 Major Industries Heavily Investing in Blockchain

For 2018, the markets started off in a mostly positive direction, and have now started heading in reverse. The Dow plunged over 665 points, posting the steepest weekly decline in over two years. As mainstream markets decline, investors immediately start re-assessing their risk tolerance, and Crypto Currency (CC) investors are re-assessing risk even more, given all the discussion about how volatile this market space can be. It is not the usual mainstream economic drivers causing the CC plunge - it is fear, which is wildly contagious across all investment categories. Markets are largely driven by human fear and greed, two emotions that cause most investors to be unsuccessful over the long term. Cold hard analysis, coupled with "smart" Buy/Sell strategies, removes emotion from your investment decisions and paves the way to success. Strong bull markets need to correct once in a while, to restore balance and set the stage for the next run up.

CC Exchanges can be significantly less nimble than the mainstream stock market exchanges; however, there are several CC Exchanges that accommodate BUY and SELL LIMIT orders. Using those facilities as part of an "Entrance and Exit" strategy is highly recommended.

The news in the CC markets throughout January was mainly focused on the declining prices of almost all the coins. CC price declines preceded the overall stock market decline and are a reaction to more and more national governments indicating that they want to either ban CC's, or increase their means to control and tax them. With all the fear that is now being generated in the mainstream stock markets, this is a perfect storm wherein CC investors have multiple sources generating fear.

Welcome to the world of cryptos, where you can make a fortune in months, and see things crash even faster. Clearly, investing anything more than a small portion of your portfolio in cryptos is a risky proposition. But if you believe, as we do, that the concepts behind Bitcoin and other cryptos, specifically the blockchain distributed database - are sound, then it makes sense to invest in cryptos, and especially indirectly in the blockchain infrastructure that supports Crypto Currencies, a technology that is expanding into many other sectors.

Today, there are over 36 major industries heavily investing in blockchain technology to revolutionize their industry, by cutting or eliminating costs, and dramatically improving efficiency and transparency. We are talking about a wide spectrum of industries including:


  • banking

  • law enforcement

  • messaging apps and ride hailing

  • IoT (internet of things)

  • cloud storage

  • stock trading

  • insurance

  • healthcare

  • elections

  • global forecasting

  • retail

  • supply chain management

  • gift cards and loyalty programs

  • government and public records

  • charity

  • credit history

  • wills and inheritances

  • and many other industries


We believe that we have years of incredible change ahead of us before this market finally settles on a standard. Yes, we will see many cryptos come and go, but much like Amazon, Apple, Google, and Facebook, there will be a few giant winners.

Stay tuned!

The Basics of Cryptocurrency and the Way It Works

In the times that we're living in, technology has made unbelievable advancement as compared to any time in the past. This evolution has redefined the life of man on almost every aspect.

Virtual Currency Games

Every little boy's (and many grown men's) dream of making a living by playing video games is edging closer to reality. The recent release of HunterCoin and the in-development VoidSpace, games which reward players in digital currency rather than virtual princesses or gold stars point towards a future where one's ranking on a scoreboard could be rewarded in dollars, and sterling, euros and yen. The story of the millionaire (virtual) real estate agent... Digital currencies have been slowly gaining in maturity both in terms of their functionality and the financial infrastructure that enables them to be used as a credible alternative to non-virtual fiat currency. Though Bitcoin, the 1st and most well known of the crypto-currencies was created in 2009 there have been forms of virtual currencies used in video games for more than 15 years. 1997's Ultima Online was the first notable attempt to incorporate a large scale virtual economy in a game. Players could collect gold coins
