There’s an industry that has grabbed the attention of Fortune 500 companies, trillion dollar banks, and some of the largest investors of our time. Today when people say “major tech revolution,” they are referring to blockchain technology.
Blockchain technology has taken the world by surprise with its cutting-edge approach and multiple benefits, including the transparency, decentralization, the ability to save money on transactions & the much needed benefit of being able to scale at a moments notice.
Hundreds of billions of dollars (yes, with a “B”) are pouring into the Blockchain Technology market right now. There has been an explosion of new public companies as well as some redefining their entire corporate structure to adapt to this emerging market. Savvy investors now have the opportunity to invest into these companies utilizing in the stock market.
Recently investors have been made aware of a company operating within the Blockchain Technology Sector. That company is…
Block One Capital – US: (BKPPF) | CA: TSXV: (BLOK) is making the move revolutionize the blockchain market and will drive serious investor value if it can execute through its strategic investments already in the works! Investors looking at this company right now are seeing an issuer that’s still flying under the radar.
There is uncapped demand from investors for exposure to the space. Access and exposure to quality, high impact opportunities are generally too challenging and complex for investors to source and evaluate on their own due to numerous factors including lack of expertise in the blockchain space.
Right now investors are in a frenzy trying to find real opportunity but the bottom line is that there are many companies out there “trying” to get involved but very few executing & delivering serious business. This makes it a very favorable time to be looking into blockchain-based companies. Just look at some of the key investment opportunities that have already delivered serious profits for early investors:
#1. Eastman Kodak Company
A company built on the imaging industry found incredible success in its recent diversification strategy. The company and WENN Digital Inc. recently announced the launch of the KODAKOne image rights management platform to empower photographers and agencies to take greater control in image rights management.
Utilizing blockchain technology, the KODAKOne platform will create an encrypted, digital ledger of rights ownership for photographers to register both new and archive work that they can then license within the platform. Share prices soared from under $3 to as high as $13.28!
#2. Net Element, Inc.
Net Element’s blockchain-focused business is a decentralized ecosystem that will act as a framework for value-added services that can connect merchants and consumers directly utilizing blockchain technology while increasing the speed and efficiency of transactions made through the Company’s processing, settlement and services ecosystem. Previous to its diversification strategy into blockchain technologies, Net Element was trading around $2.50 before running to highs of over $33.50!
#3. MGT Capital
With facilities in northern Sweden and WA State, MGT Capital Investments, Inc. ranks as one of the largest U.S. based Bitcoin miners. Further, the Company continues to execute on an expansion model to grow its assets materially.

The Company also owns the intellectual property associated with developing and marketing a mobile phone with extensive privacy and anti-hacking features. MGT was trading at levels that were under $0.50 before rising to over $8 per share during its expansion into the blockchain technology space!

Access To Capital: 10 Million Reasons For Retail Investors To Pay Attention
Late last year Block One increased it’s financial strength and closed on an oversubscribed private placement of $10 million! This raise was conducted at $1 (higher than where the current market is right now. One can only imagine why private investors would put money into a company at a premium to the market. No savvy investor takes a loss on their investment and in this case, the potential that blockchain technology have, could be two major catalysts to propel Block One.
As of March 2018, shares of Block One are trading below this level and if investors were ever looking to have an advantage over larger, private investors, there are probably 10 million reasons why now could be one of the best times to be looking at Block One Capital – US: (BKPPF) | CA: TSXV: (BLOK)
Leadership Dictating A New Pedigree for the Blockchain Industry
Block One Capital has made several key additions to its leadership team. Larry Johnson and Scott Carotenuto have come on to the company’s advisory board and based on the wealth of innovative leadership that both Johnson and Carotenuto hold, Block One Capital – US: (BKPPF) | CA: TSXV: (BLOK) could already be well positioned for strong growth.
Mr. Johnson, for instance, has a wealth of experience in security systems and operations. He worked in the Directorate of Operations and served in the CIA’s Operation’s Center. Johnson has provided Subject Matter Expertise in scripting terrorism exercises for the U.S. military special operations forces. Since 1994, Mr. Johnson has analyzed terrorist incidents for TV, radio, and print, including the PBS News Hour, CNN, National Public Radio, ABC’s Nightline, NBC, the New York Times, and the BBC.
Scott Carotenuto’s extensive carrier includes specific work in the fintech arean; a vital role for the future of blockchain technology. He has held senior positions with various firms including AXIOM Global Trading, which ultimately was diversified by his launch of AlphaPlus Technology Group. AlphaPlus oversaw more than $1 billion in client assets. He also currently advises companies on projects and transactions involving alternative and emerging markets, blockchain technology, securities trade strategy and routing technology, trade data algorithms, ATS, crossing network and exchange technology; a perfect fit for what Block One has with its current operating strategy.
The strength of leadership goes without saying when it comes to Block One’s management as well. Mr. Sothi Thillairajah and Dr. Pratheev Sreetharan serve as company CEO and CTO, respectively. Mr. Thillairajah was a Managing Director at Revere Capital Advisors in New York City where he formulated and executed capital raising and business development for early stage companies; ideal for a company like Block One Capital especially during these early stages.
Dr. Pratheev Sreetharan is highly proficient in mathematics and computational algorithms and has broad background across many technical and scientific fields. His experience and research driven approach are a welcome addition to any technology company, let alone one involved in the blockchain technology space.
Rounding out key additions to the company’s leadership are Arnold Spangler and Aman Thindal who have joined the Board of Directors. Both have key experience working in length with numerous aspects of the markets including financing, investment banking, and advisory services. Thindal, in particular has also served as a public officer on other companies including Reliq Health Technologies. At a previous venture, Thindal helped a private real estate firm secure $75+ million in both traditional mortgage and private equity financing. So obviously there is no shortage of experience aiding to the new opportunities that are being presented for Block One Capital.
Remember, profit in an industry like this has come down to action. The case for this couldn’t be more clear with the few examples listed earlier!
Now is the time that early stage investors are looking to get involved within this market and it just so happens that big banks, hedge funds, and large institutions are also trying to fight for market share.
