North America OR China, where to find investment for blockchain projects?
North American digital currency-related industries have a relatively high degree of capitalization, especially in Canada. Many North American mines have landed in the Canadian Toronto Exchange, such as Bitfarm, Argo, DMG, etc. In the United States, the SEC supervises currency as a class of financial assets, and the capital market is relatively cautious. However, there are also one or two listed mining companies in the United States. However, after the listing, they changed their main business to be currency-related to obtain capital. Market attention.
In China, the Shenzhen Stock Exchange has launched the China Blockchain 50 Index, which involves banking, speculation, games, security, securities, etc., among which the alliance chain, supply chain finance and cross-border payment are the three most popular application scenarios. However, the companies in the Blockchain 50 Index mainly combine blockchain technology with terminal technology. I personally believe that concepts are the main focus, not that significant technological progress has been made.
In general, the North American capital market is relatively friendly to emerging companies, and China mostly expands the concept of blockchain for listed companies. The concept is stronger than the substance.
The three major stock markets compete. Where will the blockchain companies go public?
In the specific listing process, we have experienced A shares, Hong Kong shares and US stocks, and summarize their respective characteristics.
A-share: It is more traditional. It is time-dependent, and political and compliance factors must be considered. But A-shares are a seller's market. There is no worry that no one buys a good concept. Because blockchain becomes a national policy in 2019, this may be some opportunities for blockchain companies.
Hong Kong: Earlier, the registration system was biased. In recent years, A shares have interacted closely with them. Jokingly, they are looking north. In some aspects, they will consult the mainland's opinions on systems and policies. The Hong Kong market is very traditional. The best-selling stocks are traditional industries such as finance and consumption. Hong Kong stocks are a typical buyer's market.
US market: Its regulations require you to be an honest child, and you must disclose the potential risks to investors before you can get a listing ticket. The United States is a liberalized buyer's market. Whether you can go public depends on whether enough investors recognize your business model and future development potential. However, the United States is actually very ignorant of China and it is biased against Chinese companies. And US stocks can go short as currency prices fluctuate, and you may face a lot of legal proceedings.
Coin circle investment vs traditional investment, from fragmentation to bridging
We divide investors into two types: primary and secondary markets. Primary market investors have three characteristics.
First, mainstream institutions have less recognition of blockchain and there are some investments, but the scale of investment is small compared to the size of their management funds, which may be less than 1% -2%. These institutions are more concerned about the underlying technology of blockchain technology.
Secondly, there are too many early-stage funds in the fund structure, and almost none in the middle and late stages.
Third, it is clear that the investment structure is that there are many coins and few shares.
Moreover, we found that the investors in the primary market of the blockchain are basically some VCs (Venture Investment Institutions). The large investment scale is 200 million US dollars, most of which are 10 million US dollars, and several million US dollars. This is actually very small, because the size of traditional funds is often between 10 billion and 100 billion US dollars.
Looking at the currency circle and traditional capital markets, we find that they are extremely fragmented.
Overseas, the coin circle investment and the traditional capital market actually have similar logic, but the domestic split is obvious. Sometimes the currency circle is inevitably suspicious. We believe that this is because the technology and business model are different, and the scenarios are different, but in the end, as the technology iterates, they will become consistent and long-term separation is unrealistic. Jia Nan Yun Zhi is a bridge. We will look at both the currency circle and the logic of traditional capital markets.
