The business case for blockchain is getting stronger every day.
Ethereum co-founder, Steve Nerayoff, is at the forefront of finding the best business use cases for blockchain.
"You're seeing a tremendous amount of growth across a wide variety of industries. Fintech is actually the natural area, but now you're seeing it becoming increasingly more creative — you find projects in the oil and gas industry, you're finding government using it in their applications, you're seeing it in gaming, all kinds of different areas," Nerayoff said.
The tremendous growth is not because it’s hip and new – but because distributed ledger technology offers powerful, practical, and ultimately profitable business uses.
Nerayoff has positioned himself to take advantage of this growth. He recently launched Global Blockchain Technologies Corp. (CSE: BLOC; OTC: BLKCF), a private equity fund and incubator specifically designed to capitalize on the emerging block chain ecosystems.
Forget crypto as currencies, tokens and ICOs aside for a moment.
Let’s focus on blockchain for business uses. You don’t have to understand the tech. Just that is on the verge of disrupting almost every industry.
Blockchain solutions are already revitalizing old, tired companies.
One of the first projects they invested in that gained international exposure was Kodak One, a blockchain solution for this age-old company that needed serious resuscitation.
The result? The stock price of Kodak jumped an astounding 700 percent.
And then there’s their partnership with Overstock.com (NASDAQ:OSTK) and its tZero subsidiary.
Blockchain—and its rewards—are only limited by the imagination.
Blockchain is being used to reduce costs and increase efficiencies in tracking shipping containers globally.
It’s stopping photography fraud and making sure photographers are paid royalties due them for their work.
Every industry in the world is about to see disruptive new businesses build on blockchain.
Even the gaming industry.
Think of an online game like Second Life with its online economy of $500 million. Blockchain is ideally suited to forming the basis of those digital economies.
In other words, the business use cases are everywhere.
And these use cases represent the next phase of the cryptocurrencies boom for investors.
Steve Nerayoff is once again at the forefront of the blockchain business world.
Last time he helped build something that is now worth $70 billion.
BLOC is a “private equity fund” and “incubator” for emerging cryptos.
Here’s why that excites investors.
#1. Why Global Blockchain Technologies Corp’s strategy is so exciting:
Global Blockchain has put together a core team that aims to be “incubating” 12 or more new digital currencies every year.
Twelve new blockchain businesses per year.
This means that Global Blockchain will be providing the funding for these new currencies in return for an equity stake and a significant percentage of the founders tokens.
Even with the recent crash in the crypto market, a few hundred invested in the right crypto currency in 2011 would still be worth millions today.
But while these top tokens get all the attention, Global Blockchain (CSE: BLOC; OTC: BLKCF) has a strategy that will get investors exposure to some of the newest coins out there, including new corporate cryptos that could revolutionize how firms monetize networks.
The top Small-cap tokens have seen even more growth than their larger brothers.
Verge, with a market cap of $864 million, has brought a return of 216,000 percent to its investors.
Other tokens, like PIVX, Einsteinium, ReddCoin and Stellar are also high value: they’ve all brought ROIs of more than 10,000 percent to those who bought at the bottom.
The gains from the top ten small-cap tokens average more than 40,000 percent!
These are the types of coins Global Blockchain is looking to target.
#2. It provides investors with a curated source for the best in class corporate cryptos & blockchain use cases
The boom in cryptos has created a lot of fraud, insanity, and delusional thinking.
Now, more than ever, investors need someone to filter through the thousands upon thousands of crypto “opportunities” in order to find the real businesses.
As co-founder of Ethereum Nerayoff is at the center of the ecosystem. He
It has an experienced management team that knows the “ins and outs” of blockchain and crypto technology; they have the experience to help spot the winners and losers in the crypto world.
Properly utilized, crypto-currencies offer large businesses the chance to monetize the networks connecting their users to products. Spaces that were inaccessible to classic monetization could now open wide for business.
And a few companies have started to take the plunge, with Global Blockchain right there alongside.
#3: Nerayoff has put together a crypto currency “Dream Team” to find, analyze, and grow blockchain projects.
Having Nerayoff picking block chain projects is exciting by itself.
After all, not only has Ethereum gained over 357,000 percent since its launch, with Nerayoff as its advisor. He was also a senior advisor to the Lisk Cryptocurrency project which now has a market cap of over 2 billion dollars.
- Global Blockchain’s Rick Willard is the co-founder of the Silicon Valley Blockchain Society and an advisor to Luxembourg on blockchain initiative.
- Kyle Kemper is the executive director of the Blockchain Association of Canada.
- Jeff Pulver has consulted and invested in 350 startups.
- Michael Terpin is the managing partner of the first blockchain incubator in the world and founded Marketwire, which sold to Nasdaq in 2006 for $200 million.
Together this team are some of the most experienced, successful, connected, and knowledge minds in the blockchain world. Exactly who you would want analyzing which blockchain projects have the best chance of success.
#4: A fund, not coin.
Only 0.05% of the world’s wealth is currently invested in crypto currencies.
That means two things.
First, the growth potential is massive.
Second, large, conservative institutional money is still apprehensive about investing directly into cryptocurrencies.
The structure provides a comfortable, known vehicle for investment in the cutting-edge blockchain world.
#5: The rapid success of these blockchain business solutions indicates we are the start of a major disruption across industries.
Every where we look we see more successful block chain business uses, like…
Veeva (NYSE:VEEV) Veeva is one of the most prominent cloud services providers out there, focusing specifically on the pharmaceutical sector. The company's cloud platform for the world's pharma companies is more popular than ever before.
After rallying to an all-time high last July, its share price has fallen a bit since. While its bigger brother ‘Salesforce’ has a stronger cash flow, Veeva has seen some healthy profits lately. Analysts now argue that the company might be ‘expensive’, but worth it. With an expected growth rate of 24% this year, it looks like investors will be rewarded for their patience.
Sony Corp (ADR) (NYSE:SNE) is a tech heavyweight. From TVs to video games, Sony covers anything and everything media-related. The company’s infamous Walkman was in the hands of every young person throughout the 1980s and 1990s. But Sony’s biggest hit was arguably the PlayStation gaming console.
With over 100-million units sold, the original console sparked a new wave of gaming. The incredible success continued with the PlayStation 2, 3, and the current series, the PlayStation 4. Sony’s PlayStation 4 is now a multi-platform entertainment device, with the ability to stream movies and music, play Blu-ray and DVDs, purchase and play video games, and even browse the web.

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.

Mogo Finance Technology Inc. (TSX:GO): The FinTech sector is one of the hottest sectors for investors right now, but finding the right company can be tough. Moho may well be one of those company, taking a new approach to unsecured credit. It provides loan management and the ability to tack spending, stress free mortgages and even credit score tracking. The online movement to assist users with finances is one of the fastest growing out there, and Mogo is one of the best in the space.
Its software analyzes clients financial habits instantly, reducing the notoriously arduous process of underwriting loans. The overhead for this company, as with many new FinTech companies in the space, is remarkably low, meaning more upside for investors and more liquidity for dealing with other issues.
Labelled as the Uber of finance, this stock may not have the most attractive story in the market, but there are undoubtedly profits to be made here.
EXFO Inc (TSX:EXFO): There long term growth potential for this tech company is hard to argue with. It has come a long what since its inception in 1985, when it was producing testing products for optical networks. It has acquired and built products including 3G, LTE, IMS and others.
Its new baseband unit offers operators a faster revenue stream and reduces cost, two advantages that can prove priceless in this competitive environment.

Power Financial Corp (TSX:PWF): Power Financial Corp is not new to the industry, having been founded in 1984 and creating a market cap of over $23 billion.
