In a global marketplace where Internet-based technologies increasingly allow businesses the means and confidence to work with each other beyond political borders and with a minimum of governmental interference, cryptocurrencies have the potential to create a B2B interdependent financing system — perhaps even a single, common digital currency someday — because of the blockchain technology that underpins cryptocurrency trade. With the beginning of market movement for the new year, cryptocurrency started just shy of $613 billion in total capitalization and climbed steadily toward $750 billion on Jan. 4, showing an exponential rise just since April 2017 when it passed the $25 billion mark. ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (CIIX) (CIIX Profile) is one of the businesses committed to the development of blockchain-based cryptocurrencies, recently announcing plans to spin-off two of its corporate divisions tied to hemp marketing and the burgeoning legal cannabis industry in order to focus on its cryptocurrency division (http://nnw.fm/5sf8Z). Other companies preparing to capitalize on opportunities in the blockchain sector include MGT Capital Investments, Inc. (MGTI), LongFin Corp. (LFIN), Bitcoin Services, Inc. (BTSC) and Overstock.com, Inc., (OSTK).
