BTCS, Inc. (OTCMKTS:BTCS) Company Overview

BTCS, Inc. (OTCMKTS:BTCS) is an early mover in the blockchain and digital currency ecosystems and the first “Pure Play” U.S. public company focused on bitcoin and blockchain technologies.

Blockchains are distributed public ledgers that have the ability to fundamentally impact all industries globally that require trust and rely on or utilize record keeping.

Subject to raising additional financing, BTCS plans to create a portfolio of digital assets including bitcoin and other “protocol tokens”.

BTCS may also acquire digital assets by resuming our transaction verification services business through outsourced data centers and earning rewards in digital assets by securing their respective blockchains.

The company is clearly in a development stage in an industry that’s still defining itself.

Recent BTCS Milestones

BTCS has been in the process of transitioning its business from an initial focus on digital currencies, private investments and bitcoin mining.

It has refined its focus over time to reduce risk and capitalize on disruptive potential of blockchain across all industries.

As bitcoin and blockchains are still not well understood by the general public, BTCS plans to provide potential shareholders exposure to a new and emerging industry by developing and managing a portfolio of digital assets using their expertise in the industry.

Digital assets have a different risk/reward profile than investing in bitcoin directly, but may give investors easier points of entry and a portfolio-based approach.

BTCS is led by a management team with strong capital markets and business strategy experience required to navigate this nascent industry.

Conclusion

BTCS’s chart shows it has recently been attracting investor interest.

This is most likely due to the recent rise in the price of bitcoin with investors seeking easier points of entry.

What’s attractive here for BTCS is increasing volume which means that it could have any easier time raising money to fund operations and development of its business plan.

As the world of bitcoin and blockchains is not currently dominated by any one player, BTCS has a clear opportunity to capitalize on its knowledge of the industry and move forward on its plan as long as it can continue to fund operations and demonstrate it is making progress.
