Many of you are probably already aware that 5G is about to become one of the next Big Things, and that many stocks associated with it are going to find themselves being levitated into a gigantic bubble.
Blockchain Holdings is thus an interesting find, for, despite the name it is in effect a 5G stock and what makes it interesting is that Airbeam 60Ghz Holdings, in which it has acquired a 34% stake via its 100%-owned subsidiary Wishland Properties, has developed a 5G capable wifi technology that eliminates the need for costly fiber optic cable infrastructure. Just a couple of weeks ago it was announced that Blockchain Holdings Ltd. has confirmed the closing of Airbeam 60Ghz Holdings Ltd.'s acquisition of 5G-focused wireless technology from a major publicly listed United States semiconductor manufacturer and notably included in the purchase are millions of sale-ready chipsets ready to be shipped to customers, a backlog of orders to long-standing clients and a road map offering rapid growth potential. This is obviously something that is going to be very big indeed, and while critics might fairly claim that the intensity of 5G signals will fry people's brains, there is a always a bright side, which is that if you can't sleep at night because of being agitated by the powerful 5G beam coming from a post outside your bedroom, at least you will be able to stumble downstairs and watch high definition movies without any risk of interruption—until that is the wife stumbles downstairs too because she can't sleep either.

Because of what Airbeam is doing and has developed, the upside potential of Blockchain Holdings' stock is clearly HUGE, so how does it look now? Unknown and unloved are probably the best terms to describe it, a true "sleeper"—a far cry from how it could look in the future with investors foaming at the mouth and climbing over each other trying to buy stocks like this and bidding it higher and higher on massive volume. On its latest 6-month chart we can see that it is trundling along sideways within the depths of a base pattern, but the fact that 76% of its stock is owned by family and friends, leaving less than 5 million shares in the float, means that if any serious demand kicks in the stock could explode higher. The spike that occurred back last October should give you an idea of what it is capable of, and that was on a relatively modest pickup in demand. It is thus classified as a sleeper—a stock that is completely off the radar of all but a handful of investors, and so trading quietly at a low level, but has the potential to really come to life fast if it suddenly gets discovered.
For those of us who only have a hazy understanding of what 5G is and the problems involved in its implementation, Airbeam 60Ghz Holdings has produced a very clear and succinct presentation from which the following illuminating slides have been lifted. They explain that the main challenge in implementation is that, because 5G uses very high frequencies which is what enables the huge bandwidth, much higher than the existing 4G, the signal decays in strength very rapidly with distance, which is what makes a lot of small micro base stations necessary. This could mean big construction costs, but costs can be reduced very significantly by mounting the transmitters on existing infrastructure, such as lamp posts that line most streets. Another key point that these slides make is that Airbeam is way ahead of the competition because it has an exclusive contract with a semiconductor company to purchase the WiGig and Wireless HD product lines, which come with a significant inventory of chips and purchase orders from existing customers. Here are the slides in correct order, but note that there are more in the company's presentation.
Blockchain Holdings is therefore recommended as a speculative "sleeper" with huge upside potential. We first bought it on the 7th of this month, when it was recommended at C$0.495 ($0.368). The stock trades in light but improving volumes on the US OTC market.
