Thoughts on GPC?
They are tied to blockchain?

Or they are financing a company that is?

Looks like the venture doesn’t like these crypto plays anymore, so many companies announced crypto in one way or another and the stocks barely trade much volume. Hopefully this crypto madness ends and people start trading rationally again and buy solid companies that actually make $

This is exactly why I say that if you are interested in blockchain and how it is going to change the world, you should be trading companies like IBM, Intel, Microsoft, JPMorgan - not these silly crypto startups.

The crypto craze is ridiculous, and even though some of these guys have some interesting ideas technology wise, very few if any have solid business plans on how to actually profit. The whole blockchain bubble right now feels very much like the Web bubble of 2000... "I am going to take business X and do it on the web, that is the entirety of my plan, give me millions of dollars"... "I am going to take business X and run it on crypto..."

The amount of money the companies I just mentioned are going to make off of blockchain is many orders of magnitude higher than these startups, because they are focused on the REAL transformitive use cases for blockchain - those in the enterprise. They are the companies driving the blockchain revolution. IBM is involved with Walmart and their suppliers in re-doing the entire supply chain around Blockchain. Do you have any idea how much $$$ that opportunity is if it takes off?

Time to stock up on BTL. The price is right and a lot of news lately:
  • Venzee & BTL Partnership
  • Partnerships with Leading European Energy Firms

Venzee and BTL Group Ltd Announce Partnership
31 Jan 2018 07:30 ET
Marketwire Canada
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 31, 2018) - Venzee Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:VENZ) ("Venzee" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a partnership with BTL Group Ltd (TSX VENTURE:BTL) ("BTL") that will bring together the Company's data transformation solution, Mesh, with BTL's blockchain development platform, Interbit?.

Using artificial intelligence, Mesh is able to import, merge and transform data from existing systems before writing to blockchain networks, greatly simplifying the process of integrating blockchain networks with conventional databases.

Kate Hiscox, President of Venzee Technologies Inc., commented, "Since announcing Mesh, we have had interest from enterprise customers, including major retail and globally recognized banks who are looking to deploy blockchain as part of their data strategy. BTL offers a world-class permissioned blockchain solution that, combined with Mesh, means we can provide an end-to-end solution that helps companies achieve their blockchain goals more efficiently."

Interbit? is a blockchain development platform. Designed to be developer friendly using today's most popular and proven tools and languages, developers are empowered to build enterprise-grade blockchain-based applications without having to learn new tools or languages.

"We are very excited about our partnership with Venzee, especially as we believe it will result in a number of client projects originating from Mesh and BTL. The projects we see often include multiple data sources from the same or different companies. This is where Mesh helps connect the dots by merging and transforming data before it's written directly to Interbit or any applications on the platform," stated Dominic McCann, CEO of BTL.

Increasing adoption of Blockchain-as-a-service, rising cryptocurrency market caps and ICO's are simplifying business processes. This immutability and newly created transparency is expected to propel the growth of the blockchain market to US$7,683 million by 2022 (source: https://www.prnewswire.com/news-release ... 75324.html).

Venzee and BTL have entered into a letter of intent in respect of their partnership, the terms of which will be set out in a definitive agreement.

About BTL

Listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and operating from both Canada and the United Kingdom, BTL is an enterprise technology platform provider that is developing Interbit, a proprietary next-generation blockchain platform. Via Interbit, BTL can help companies greatly reduce risks and costs by securely streamlining existing IT infrastructures. BTL has successfully demonstrated how Interbit can innovate and transform existing business processes, for leading companies in the finance, energy, and gaming sectors. Interbit is a fast, private and scalable inter-connected blockchain platform.

About Venzee

Venzee is a SaaS company that launched in 2014 to help ecommerce vendors and retailers easily share product information in a US$23 trillion retail industry (source: Statista). Traditionally, this was done using spreadsheets which created a labor-intensive process that delayed products from reaching the marketplace. Venzee's technology, leveraging artificial intelligence to streamline product information exchange, allows thousands of vendors and retailers to seamlessly share information, avoiding delays and getting products to market faster than ever. The Company graduated from notable startup accelerator program 500 Startups and recently announced support for blockchain networks via its product Mesh.

The BTL(TM) Interbit(TM) Blockchain Platform to Drive Next Phase of Energy Trading Systems With Market Leading European Energy Firms
22 Jan 2018 09:20 ET
GlobeNewswire
BTL GROUP LTD. (TSX Venture:BTL) ("BTL" or the "Company") is pleased to provide further information on the next phase of its previously announced European energy trading project, under which four oil and gas supermajors and five leading energy traders including Eni Trading & Shipping, Total, Gazprom Marketing & Trading Limited, Mercuria, Vattenfall, Petroineos and Freepoint, propose to participate in using BTL's Interbit blockchain platform to deliver gas trading reconciliation through to settlement and delivery of trades. This enterprise solution is being called OneOffice and is a revenue generating project for BTL.

OneOffice - this second phase of BTL's European energy project - follows the successful completion of the phase one pilot (see the Company's press release dated June 5, 2017) which demonstrated the Interbit platform's delivery of back office cost saving via smart contracts that automate trade reconciliation processes. In this second phase, BTL will work with the participants to build the OneOffice application to deliver cost savings across the trade life cycle.

Interbit, as a next generation blockchain platform, has the capacity to operate and interconnect many thousands of blockchains per server, in a secure, private and scalable manner and moreover is designed for ease of use. See the Company's October 17, 2017 press release for more information about Interbit's capabilities and the patents filed in connection therewith.

Francesco Romeo, Eni Trading & Shipping ICT Vice President, said, "Following our experience during the European energy pilot, we look forward to expanding the scope to enable straight through processing through the whole settlement process as well as bringing wider participation from the industry."

"Total has been trading gas and power since 2000. At the moment, we hear a lot about blockchain and how this technology could transform the trading processes. If successful, this initiative with BTL could help us to reduce the risks of human errors and to increase the speed in the reconciliation process of transactions with our fellow counterparts," said Philippe Chauvain, Vice President Risk Control and IT - Total Gas & Power Limited.

Catherine Newman, General Manager Global IT & Delivery, Gazprom Marketing & Trading Limited, said, "Blockchain could provide cross-industry opportunities to improve the speed, security and efficiency of transactions with Gazprom Marketing & Trading Limited's counterparties at the forefront of technological developments in commodity trading. These opportunities can only be realised by working collaboratively with other commodity market participants. Although it is early stages yet, the POC with BTL represents an exciting and potentially disruptive prospect in the near future."

"Blockchain has great potential to increase automation and efficiency of our trading operation. Back office processes for confirmation, settlement and invoicing are ideal use cases for this emerging technology. We expect significant improvements in these processes by utilising BTL's OneOffice," said Frank van Doorn, acting Head of Trading, Vattenfall.

"Phase two extends from trade reconciliation to settlement using our Interbit application for the natural gas trade life cycle. We are delighted to be working with some of the largest and most innovative companies in the energy sector, bringing together like-minded firms that see the potential of BTL's industry agnostic blockchain technology in reducing risks, costs and providing better protection against cyber threats," said Dominic McCann, BTL's CEO. "The launch of the OneOffice project is a significant achievement for BTL as we move closer towards introducing the Interbit platform across multiple industries later this calendar quarter."

Oh yes, more unverifiable profits on a faceless forum.This place ooozes successful traders. Please post/upload all your confirmations of these alleged profits, I'd love to see how a successful trader such as yourself operates. Maybe learn few things from you. If you think the 'pump' is only a few weeks you are delusional. There are still over one hundred million shares in lockup at prices up to $2.80, rest assured these will all be profitable. Of all these new blockchain plays this is the only one that is actually mining rather than just putting the word 'blockchain' in a press release.

How do these block chain ledgers work? Can they be isolated from bitcoin tokens and run their own network of servers?
