MGT Capital Investments Inc. (OTCMKTS:MGTI) is up 11% today and many seem to be buying the slight dip that occurred in mid-November. This dip probably won’t last for long. Overall, MGTI has been having a extraordinary year. But why?
Overall, MGTI is having a great year because bitcoin took over. Bitcoin now goes for close to $12,000 apiece and, as adoption increases, more and more money is flowing into the space. What looked like a big risk by McAfee at the end of last year has now proven to be an incredibly smart move and – as the price per coin continues to rise – the value of the company’s bitcoin holdings as well as the reward that MGT earns for every block that its mining equipment processes increases. Now, MGTI represents one of the first movers in the bitcoin play for those who are effectively priced out of the actual coin.
