– Many billionaires who are being tracked by both Forbes and Portfolio Insider are known to have no contact with modern blockchain infrastructure. But not Mark Cuban, the billionaire is on the blockchain after selling his startup Broadcast.com to Yahoo for $ 5.7 billion in the first internet boom. Finally, Mr Cuban tells savvy investors that if he did it again, he would focus his business on blockchain technology, smart contracts and NFTs or non-fungible tokens. And he puts his money where his mouth is. The host of the TV show “Shark Tank” recently doubled his investment in NFTs by initiating several stakes in non-fungible token companies. The billionaire has been jumping both feet into the NFT room since the beginning of this year. He bought shares in NFT platforms like SuperRare, Mintable, Cryptoslam & OpenSea. The NFT market, which was roughly $ 250 million last year, is at a record pace. According to Bloomberg and Portfolio Insider, blockchain startups like Alchemy have grown 54x since August to support $ 25 billion worth of Ethereum projects. In addition to investing in NFTs, the billionaire has also bought crypto coins: “Bitcoin will not be a currency. It will not be a hedge against fiat and it will print too many fiat dollars. It is a store of value whose value will rise because it is scarce. “Cuban uses a Coinbase wallet for Bitcoin, Ethereum and other digital coins. Good enough, he bought shares in the Coinbase cryptocurrency exchange on the day of his public debut on the Nasdaq. In addition to crypto assets, NFTs and non-fungible tokens, he likes to invest in traditional high-growth tokens.” Stocks. Here are some of the fastest-growing stocks from Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban: Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN) Amazon.com, the world’s largest e-commerce giant, was a must-see for Mark Cuban, as it announced last year that he started buying Amazon in the $ 500-700 range and his buy and hold strategy is paying off. “I have nearly $ 1 billion in Amazon stock,” Cuban said last year “It’s my biggest stake.” Amazon’s share price rose 44% over the past twelve months and its stock rose 432% over the past five years, thanks to consistently high double-digit sales and earnings growth. Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) The world’s largest streaming giant is the Shark Tank investor’s second-largest holding. Believe it or not, he’s been involved in Netflix since it has traded around $ 50 per share. With the shares now trading around $ 500, the stock was a jackpot with a 1,200% paper return over Mr. Cuban’s early investment. Mark Cuban revealed in an interview that he owns more than 50,000 Netflix shares and remains bullish on the streaming stock despite the spate of competitors entering the streaming market. “Every new smart TV that comes out has Netflix as an option. When you hit the gym, any smart exercise machine has Netflix as an option, ”Cuban said. “Not only is it ubiquitous here, it is also becoming more ubiquitous globally … I can see that the competition is not affecting this negatively at all.” With more than 208 million paid memberships, Netflix posted record sales of $ 7.1 billion in March. He believes Netflix can shake off its disappointing subscriber growth numbers and projections for the current quarter in the first quarter. He also believes that another drop in stocks after the profit could create an opportunity for shareholders like him. Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) Mark Cuban is a longtime shareholder of Twitter. And he rushed to increase his stake last year when Twitter’s share price fell to its 52-week low on ad revenue concerns. Buying in the bathroom was a charm for Mr. Cuban. The social media company’s share price rose 161% over the past twelve months, extending five-year earnings to 284%. The surge in global internet advertising is one of the main drivers behind Twitter’s price rally. The economic reopening and improving fundamentals for the global travel and tourism industry will fuel ad revenue growth in 2021.
