Bitcoin Sends Other Niche Assets Soaring - Nvidia, MicroVision, Intel

12/8/2017 Anant Goel

On May 22, 2010, a developer bought two pizzas using 10,000 units of a then-little-known digital currency called bitcoin. Today, 10,000 bitcoins are worth more than $160 million.

Bitcoin is going nuclear. Its price is tearing upward, with each bitcoin worth 16,444 reached earlier Friday on December 8th, 2017.

The bitcoin mania is spilling over into semi-related, niche areas of the broader financial markets, where a clutch of cryptocurrency funds, blockchain companies and digital currency groups have rocketed in value. The relentless rise of bitcoin and other digital currencies this year has been much-mocked by many analysts and investors, who see it as an obvious bubble. But advocates continue to shrug off the skepticism, despite bitcoin supporters admitting it is showing signs of a classic investment mania.

The primary, mainstream way to bet on the bitcoin craze has been to buy the shares of chipmakers such as Nvidia, AMD, MicroVision and Intel, which make products that are used to “mine” the most famous cryptocurrency.

This is a lesson in how a market can over-value your something or under-value it. Right now there is one high-tech company that is transitioning from a bleeding-edge to leading edge Company in four key emerging technologies… and today it is trading at just $1.54 per share. And may be valued at worth 1,000 pizzas in 2022!!!

There was risk with bitcoin in 2010. There may be some risk with MicroVision [Nasdaq:MVIS] today. However, I bet you wish you had invested a few hundred bucks into bitcoin in 2010 and just hung on to it.

The Next Billion Dollar Idea is here…

Real billion dollar ideas have multi-billion dollar market size, they are scalable, and they leverage drivers of growth to go viral or global.

Those who understand and learn how to use capital, energy, cheap labor, technology, other people's time, other people's money combined with the power of business systems that deliver great value are the ones who create wealth. Once they get such formula correct, huge wealth comes from SCALING that value delivery to the masses at a global scale.

Today the power of leverage is found in many ways. Financial strategies, diverse technologies, business models, outsourcing, communications, web 2.0, social media, advertising, real estate, transportation, to name a few...

To become a billionaire… develop a billion dollar idea… and help a billion people on this planet of over 7 billion humans.

 The Next Billion Dollar Idea is here…
 

Company: MicroVision [NASDAQ: MVIS]

Technology: Laser Beam Scanning [LBS] miniature PicoP Display Engine, 3D scanning, Augmented Reality (AR) and broad base IP Portfolio.

Market: MicroVision is targeting four noteworthy tech arrivals of the last few years that are gaining momentum, and are expected to experience extremely rapid growth in the next few years.

I believe MicroVision has key-stone technology for all of them:

  • Smart Phones with pico Projectors
  • Smart TV/Projector in your Palm
  • Augmented Reality
  • Internet of things
  • 3D Scanning (3D Printing, Self Driving cars, Interface with AR, etc...)

Smartphones: 1.4 Billion were sold during the 2014 calendar year. The companies that make them are desperate for innovation. MicroVision's tech can put a six foot screen in a cell phone.

Augmented Reality: Really got a boost in public knowledge from Pokemon Go, but many companies have been working hard on this for a long time. Some companies are putting the developer edition of the Hololens to work already, this field should get faster growth than most expect. MicroVision has the best (as of 2015 CES) near eye display of all. Field of view far better than anything else I could find there. Heads up displays, a kind of augmented reality, and MicroVision is right there with technology and IP portfolio.

Internet of Things: Yes, your refrigerator, and all kinds of other things around you will have chips that check data, things you wear, things you use, things you don't even think about. To interact with these things.... displays are needed... what's easier than a tiny device that creates a relatively large display with touch-interactivity?

3D Scanning: 3D Printing has lost some of its buzz, but it's still being used a great deal. It's speeding up manufacturing and testing. It's used for art and prototyping. Being able to scan in 3D is essential for 3D printing. MicroVision’s compact laser scanning, highly accurate, and is relatively low cost. Driver-less cars are shaping up to be a huge growth area, and MicroVision is there with its technology.

MicroVision doesn't need to dominate all of these markets to make its stockholders rich. Serving 10% of smartphones will make crazy wealth for MVIS stockholders.
