For many alternative assets, there’s simply no way to make a liquid trade on an exchange. For those who care about fine art, the wine market, rare stamps or coins, there’s no easy fund to buy into. However, investors in the latest new asset class, cryptocurrencies, are finding an increasing number of options.
It’s now been a year since major payment platforms have allowed users to park their cash in crypto names instead. A number of brokerage firms allow such trades as well.
But there are ways to play the trend without directly investing in the trend. One way might include betting on cryptocurrency mining stocks. These companies have been investing in technology to mine cryptocurrencies, and have been keeping as much of their mined totals on their books, only selling what’s needed, or issuing shares or adding debt, to pay current expenses.
- The ONLY Way to Play Markets Like These
Warren Buffett said, "Price is what you pay... value is what you get."
The best investor in the world knows the only way to prosper (especially in markets like these)... is to invest in VALUE.
But this $2 stock could be the last value play in the market today.
Among the crypto players today, all could shoot higher on a jump in cryptos. Riot Blockchain (RIOT) took a big dive last week on a report they were spending more to increase their mining capacity. As long as crypto prices move higher, that’s actually a bullish sign.
Action to take: Daily volatility can easily hit double-digits for this company, so investors and traders alike could do well with shares in a crypto rally.
For traders, a potential rally in the next few months make the June 2022 $50 calls interesting. The option is already pricey, going for about $9.30, but on a strong enough rally, the option could still deliver triple-digit returns.
