One of the most common methods of getting into blockchain technology investment is relatively straightforward. You only to set up a trading account in your preferred crypto exchange platforms and start trading. However, this investment is high risk because of the highly volatile nature of cryptocurrencies.

With digital assets, blockchain has enabled tokenization of anything like art, real estate, or gold. Tokenization is converting anything with value into a digital token existing on the blockchain. Tokenization makes fractional ownership of tokens possible. For instance, if you’re a real estate investor and cannot afford a property worth $2 million, the property managers or owners can tokenize the property allowing many investors to own a percentage of it.

Blockchain guarantees the security of your percentage ownership by keeping proof of ownership. This helps you to increase your investment portfolio at an affordable rate.

Blockchain Startups And Angel Funding

Angel funding is a concept that has been there for a while but investing in blockchain startups is fairly new. For blockchain companies that haven’t reached the public offering level, acquiring funding through angel investors is a feasible way of raising capital. Angel investors are people who look at blockchain startup ideas, evaluate their potential and fund and get company equity in return.

Providing a startup for a blockchain company puts you on the frontline of what could potentially be the next big thing. But you need to scrutinize both the idea and the owners as some startups fail to deliver what they promise and go under. The ones that succeed are usually market disrupters becoming high-value companies, giving you a good return on investment.

Stocks Of Blockchain Technology Companies

Blockchain companies refer to companies specializing in blockchain implementation in their operations and those specializing in blockchain products and services. Just like the traditional stocks, those of blockchain companies are among the safest investments in blockchain.

The high risk and gain option is investing in companies that specialize in developing blockchain products and services. The risk is because they’re new market players and may fail to take off, resulting in losses but have a high potential of gain as well. The other option is less risky, and it involves investing in stocks of companies using blockchain, such as Microsoft and IBM.

Payment Processing And Accepting Cryptocurrency

Accepting cryptocurrency as payment is an excellent alternative to taking fiat currency. You can offer it as a payment option in your business in addition to receiving debit and credit card payments to eliminate security concerns. You won’t only earn cryptocurrency, but you are also potentially enlarging your customer base.

Accepting cryptocurrency allows you to benefit from the price fluctuations. However, you need also to have a cryptocurrency payment gateway that allows for automatic calculations and conversion of fiat values to crypto equivalents. In addition, you can develop a payment solution for cryptocurrencies and offer it to other businesses is also an excellent way of investing and earning through blockchain.

Picks And Axes Investment

This concept comes from the California gold rush, where the manufacturers of picks, axes, and shovels became more prosperous than the miners themselves. These are who provide tools to speculators to go out and hunt the fortune. In blockchain technology, these are the companies that develop the tools, hardware, and chips required in mining cryptocurrency.

Basically, you’re investing in the technology that enables the production of something rather than investing in the product itself. It’s less risky since you don’t have to navigate the murky waters of market risks. You can choose to invest in software, infrastructure, and other blockchain enabling mechanisms.

Takeaway

Blockchain’s adoption and application in various industries are increasing as more people understand its uses and benefits. Blockchain is a promising technology in payment processing, document management, supply chain and logistics monitoring, personal identification and security, crypto exchange, and many others. This creates numerous avenues for benefiting from its growth and adoption whether you want to invest in blockchain products and services or the enabling mechanisms.
