As noted above, BLKCF just may have set a trend that will be important to watch going forward. By leading a round of investment in the Kodak coin, the company has taken a step as a sort of new type of hedge fund.
“We are very pleased and excited to have Global Blockchain Technology Corp, a Cryptocurrency pioneer and a visionary in the ICO revolution as our lead investor in this historic ICO. They are an experienced group of investors who have a deep understanding of the crypto markets,” said Jan Denecke, CEO of WENN Digital and Co-founder and developer of the KodakOne Image Rights Platform and the Kodak Coin.
“The KodakOne ICO is very compelling and fills the need for managing and monetizing digital assets globally. Given the size of the marketplace, the people involved and technology partnership, this has the opportunity to be a very large and active community. Our deep industry roots and relationships have allowed us access this new ICO in short order, one of the first involving a significant brand name issuer that is widely recognized by the public,” said Shidan Gouran, President, Global Blockchain.
Basically, this is a small float play that just suggested a new way to play the crypto revolution. That doesn’t necessarily mean they will have an edge in this type of game going forward. But we would imagine we will see more moves of this nature by both the established corporate world and capitalized names with experienced talent in the blockchain space.
At this time, carrying a capital value in the market of $32.8M, BLKCF has a significant war chest ($6.3M) of cash on the books, which stands against virtually no total current liabilities. In addition, the company is seeing recent top-line growth, with sequential quarterly revenues reportedly growing at 899.9%. As more color becomes clear on the name, we will review the situation and update our take.
