m0riarty: Tony trust you are well. no one can argue with your commitment to BLU and of course you have maintained your holding, we understand and respect that esports was in effect a hedge against Satoshipay, it had to happen , whilst i did not appreciate the dilution, it was a great decision and a necessary decision. i am sure that if you had your time again, you would have insisted on a seat on the Satoshipay board as part of the initial 30% investment.? Blue Star shareholders are seemingly left in the dark (satoshipay) and expected to be happy with that, sure this was a frustration for you too. It is probably fair to say and by all means correct otherwise if i am wrong, but Satoshipay could continue forever developing and taking funds from Stellar, never having to do another thing other than enrich the Stellar network, this doesn't necessarily facilitate ambition as Stellar always there to offer funds. i did put to Derek with regards selling our stake to Stellar, but of course Stellar is non profit, however if they rely on Satoshipay so much , why not? we could allow payment in Lumens? ;) technology has evolved in the last few years at a rapid pace, the potential for micropayments now is massive, it can be used in any payment situation you can think of, the Adult entertainment industry must be ripe for micropayments to view images etc, Getty images could charge a fraction of a payment per image download, we all know the possibilities with regards media, buying an article or indeed subscribing to a particular section of a publication, Sport / Politics / Markets etc, so i still think micropayments has a place when the Dtransfer / Pendulum situation gets resolved. Grateful for your explanation on the holdup with regards Dtransfer, expected this to evolve much quicker than has, after all, moving funds from point A to point B is not rocket science in principle, so could only imagine it was regulatory issues. I believe a regular and frequent update from Satoshipay until they IPO would be best idea to placate BLU shareholders, no shareholder enjoys being left in the dark and the messages here are to offer opinion in the hope of some kind of explanation, which fair play to you, you have done !! Satoshipay have not had a series A funding round, as a speculation my thoughts are that the amount of Lumens they have and its 10x increase negated this, so we no longer have a way of gauging what their valuation is, not that it had any direct effect on the BLU share price in the past , unfortunately to my mind i would be very happy to see an IPO at Satoshipay within 12 months, to give a chance to exit at a reasonable price. do you see this as a possibility ?
tonyfabrizi: Hello Mr Spookie, you asked if I wanted to comment on your observations so let me try. But first let me remind you and all other holders of Blue, that the investment strategy of Blue is to invest very early in disruptive technologies, this is a high risk and reward approach. If you look at today’s portfolio, Sthaler/Fingo, is using finger vein technology in a number of applications. Yesterday’s announcement of their tie up with Mastercard is another important step in building their application into a robust global product. Building a company to compete in the global payment and identification space is not easy and is taking a long time but the company continues to make progress and looks likely to succeed. We made the initial small investment in Sthaler of £50k and based on the latest valuation this is worth around £400k. Personally, I would be disappointed if this investment yields less than £500k. The point I want to make is when Blue made this investment Sthaler was very early in its evolution but I liked the tech, could see a wide application and the valuation was low so we made an investment knowing we could lose our money but also that it might provide a 10/20x return. A similar approach was taken to the esports investments. When this opportunity was shown to us, I fully appreciated it was risky as the businesses were all fledgling but this was a fast growing market, the people bringing the deals had a good track record, were aligned through the warrants and we could acquire significant stakes at relatively low valuations. I am sure all Blue holders are pleased we made this move given the strong performance of the esports portfolio. Turning to SatoshiPay, we looked at a number of blockchain businesses before selecting SatoshiPay and the main reason I chose them was a belief they were strong technically and the valuation was low, when a lot of investments in the sector had very inflated valuations. Its easy to forget but Blue shareholders were very supportive of this investment at the time and Blue’s share price reached over 0.60p following the investments. The market collapse at end 2019 and the significant fall-out in the crypto market clearly had a negative impact on the market’s view of SatoshiPay and Blue. In addition, the original vertical that SatoshiPay pursued of micropayments for publishers proved unresponsive. Despite these setbacks SatoshiPay’s management with Blue’s support and that of Stellar Development Foundation and Daniel Masters, pivoted the business model to B2B money transfer. This is a challenging move given the scale of the market and the strength of the incumbents, but the prize is also enormous. The major challenge SatoshiPay has faced in trying to deliver this product is an incomplete tech infrastructure needed to deliver the service on the Stellar network. Although Stellar is a large foundation with a major currency (Lumens:$10bn) they are still some way behind say Ethereum in terms of how their blockchain works and the currency can be deployed. This has I believe been the main delaying factor behind the market launch of Dtransfer. The Pendelum network project provides solutions to many of these problems. In addition to allowing Dtransfer to fully rollout its platform, it also cements SatoshiPay position as a key component in the workings of the Stellar blockchain. In other words, Stellar is highly incentivised to see SatoshiPay succeed. This is why Stellar have effectively given free money (non-refundable grant) to SatoshiPay to develop Pendelum. So, in my opinion, while there is still a risk SatoshiPay will fail, the overall chances of it succeeding grow as the relationship with Stellar strengthens and the move towards blockchain and crypto solutions evolves. Blue has invested approx. £1.8m in SatoshiPay for 27% of the business, and personally I believe that will prove to an excellent investment.
bapodra_investments: kernel - I thought your average was a lot higher based on previous posts but if it is 0.16p then you are still in a reasonable position. The point of selling now for you would be that if you did not have the confidence that SatoshiPay and ultimately BLU can rise in share price value then your capital may work better for you in a share which meets your expectations. If you think the 'good side' can overcome SatoshiPay and lead to BLU's share price going up then you would hold. I appreciate you may not add to your position. I am relatively new to BLU so I have only held the shares for a few months where as others may have held for years. I have mentally written off SatoshiPay and I did this before I even invested in BLU. I looked at the market cap of BLU and the potential for Esports and felt BLU could present a fantastic investment opportunity at current price levels should BLU's Esports investments increase in valuation over the coming years. This is a long term hold for me at current price levels. I am only a few months into my journey with BLU and I am comfortable holding over a five year time period.
888icb: GILD having another good day and could have another go at 8p. Let’s see if the BLU share price reacts to this in a positive way.
stoxx67: and i agree entirely boonboon the market cap is supported by Dynasty and Guild, so what is the market telling you about Satoshipay after 7 Years? agree the Dynasty IPO will be valued much higher than the last funding round at $50m, Guild seems to be showing signs of life too, which is excellent and shows the value of Tony & derek's thioughts in diversifying away from Satoshipay. They had no choice really !! so, at risk of broken record syndrome, what does this say about our errant investee Satoshipay? what is the market telling us about them? the only thing i know for sure is the market currently values it at close to Zero, from a BLU perspective. what do you value it at? how can you value it with the lack of news and financial details? the last funding round was EUR 17m, was this reflected in the BLU share price? NO it was not, BLU has never increased in value based on the perceived increasing valuation of Satoshipay. So, again, what is the market telling you about Satoshipay?
oakville: Update on Investment Portfolio Blue Star Capital plc (AIM: BLU), the investing company with a focus on esports, payments, technology and its applications within media and gaming, provides a general update in respect of certain of its investee companies. Guild Esports plc ("Guild") Guild was admitted to the Official List and started trading on the standard segment of the London Stock Exchange in October 2020 to take advantage of the growing esports markets. It is Guild's intention to create a leading global esports franchise by establishing its own teams, player training and talent scouting and associated management of branding, advertising and media rights. Since its admission to trading, Guild has already achieved a number of important milestones, including attracting a number of sponsorship deals including Subway, a European fintech Company and Hyper X, a gaming peripheral brand. Further Guild has launched merchandising opportunities including in-game decals and a clothing range. Guild has continued to expand its team and player signing, with both team acquisitions and the signing of top-ranked players to compete in tournaments for games such as Fortnite, Valorant, Rocket League and FIFA. In March 2021, Guild won its first major trophy in the European Grand Finals of the Fortnite Champion Series, which was followed by a second trophy win at the EU Spring Regional Rocket League Champion Series in April 2021. Blue Star has, to date, invested approximately GBP706,000 in Guild, and holds approximately a 5.95 per cent of the issued share capital of Guild valuing its investment, at the current share price of 6.65 pence, at approximately GBP2 million. Dynasty eSports Pts ("Dynasty") Dynasty is a Singapore-based business which has developed its esports portal management ("EPM") platform to combine the esports ecosystem of community, competition, player engagements and monetisation. Initially targeting the Malaysian market, Dynasty signed a five-year partnership with the Malaysia Esports Federation in June 2020 to provide its EPM platform. Since June 2020, Dynasty has gone on to sign a number of other SaaS agreements for the provision of its platform, notably to the largest telecoms carrier in the Middle East to launch a branded Dynasty platform in a number of the region's key esports and gaming countries. Dynasty has successfully raised additional funding, most recently in April 2021 in which Blue Star participated, raising US$5 million and increasing Dynasty's post-money valuation to US$50 million. This funding will allow Dynasty to continue to develop its EPM platform, with the intention to focus on enhanced player personalisation, games publishing, rights management and the use of AI to support an automated experience in coaching and media creation. Dynasty recently announced its intention to seek an IPO on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) within the next 12 months. To date, the Company has invested approximately GBP895,000 in Dynasty and, based on Dynasty's valuation of US$50 million in this latest fundraising round, the Company's holding in Dynasty is valued at approximately US$6.5 million (approximately GBP4.6 million). SatoshiPay SatoshiPay is a fintech company supplying payment and money transfer infrastructure based on blockchain technology to digital industries and globally operating SMEs. Having initially focussed on building a micropayment infrastructure and platform the decision was taken just over a year ago to use the same technology and experience to move into B2B cross border payments service for businesses. The reaction to this new product has been positive and the Board are encouraged by recent developments. SatoshiPay announced the launch of its B2B payments platform DTransfer in September 2020 to facilitate cross-border payments for businesses by integrating currency exchange into each transaction. In December 2020, SatoshiPay announced it had signed an agreement with German Bankhaus von der Heydt to become the first user of the bank's fully compliant Euro-backed stablecoin ("EURB") which it is integrating with DTransfer. This agreement provides SatoshiPay with a stable on and off-ramp for EURB transactions with instant EUR-based bank transfers within the Single Euro Payments Area (which comprises 36 European member-states) allowing users with an easy solution to instantly send and receive euro-based payments. The Company awaits further updates from SatoshiPay and will update the market in due course. To date, the Company has invested approximately GBP1.9 million in SatoshiPay. Based on the value of SatoshiPay's last fund raise, Blue Star's investment is valued at approximately GBP4.9 million. Other Investment Highlights As announced on 16 April 2021, Blue Star invested in NFT Investments plc, an investment company targeting non-fungible tokens, a specialised class of assets that certifies authenticity and proof of ownership of digital assets. Blue Star has invested a total of GBP250,000 in NFT Investments plc at both pre-ipo and ipo rounds at an average price of GBP0.027 pence per share, now valuing the Company's investment at GBP342,000. Leaf Mobile inc. ("Leaf") in which the Company invested CAD$100,000 in April 2020, completed the acquisition of East Side Games Inc. for approximately CAD$159 million in February 2021 and commenced trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange. More recently, Leaf announced revenue of $80.5M in for the year ended 31 December 2020, representing a 116 per cent. increase over 2019 revenue of CAD$37.2 million. The share price for Leaf is currently trading at approximately CAD$0.47 per share valuing Blue Star's holding in Leaf at approximately CAD$293,750. Derek Lew, CEO of Blue Star commented, "This latest market update supports Blue Star's strategy of investing in early-stage disruptive tech businesses that make up our portfolio. We strongly believe that we are well positioned to benefit from the growth in esports, gaming, fintech and now most recently NFTs."
bapodra_investments: TrendEndBoy - If you read the RNS released on 16th April 2021 below you will see my perspective in terms of shares and warrants. Blue Star Capital Exercise of Warrants, Placing and New Investment This paragraph (below) explains it. " Blue Star Capital plc (AIM: BLU), the investing company with a focus on esports, payments, technology and its applications within media and gaming, announces, further to its announcement of 15 April 2021, that it has raised approximately £1.02 million, before expenses, pursuant to a placing of 142,857,143 new ordinary shares and the exercise of 442,221,889 warrants (together the "Fundraise") both at a price of 0.175p per new ordinary share ("the Issue Price"). As a result of the Fundraise, the company has allotted a total of 585,079,032 new ordinary shares ("New Ordinary Shares") representing approximately 11.9 per cent. of the Company's enlarged issued share capital. The placing has been conducted by Kiyo Capital Limited. " Now have a look prior to this announcement how many shares BLU had and then add the amount above and you will that in total there are a lot of shares! Until there is enough demand from 'buyers' for these shares it is going to keep a lid on the share price. That will come in due course so patience will be required but hopefully that makes sense. This is why even with some positive news recently the share price is reacting the way it is.
bapodra_investments: okspookie - patience. No one said it would be a game changer in 8 hours!!!!! BLU have invested £250,000 in NFT Investments PLC which is not a small amount for BLU. If NFT's share price doubles which is a perfectly reasonable expectation to have in the Crypto space then BLU's investment all of a sudden is worth £500,000. However, if NFT's share price performs anything like KR1 PLC or ARB then BLU's investment will be worth in the millions as because NFT is listed, BLU can sell some of its stake and exit with some profits. Dynasty news was great and I think short to medium term the Esports side is going to drive BLU's share price. I am discounting SatoshiPay and treating it like a Christmas Cracker. If anything nice come out great but if not move on as the party must go on. BLU's market cap is very low based on its investments and potential. From a 'risk/reward' potential BLU is an attractive investment for high risk capital growth investors who are patient.
trentendboy: This is top sponsor and guild up ten percent - could jump even higher as this puts them in big boy league and up with the very best now BLU share price should reflect this also
bapodra_investments: Doodle - BLU's biggest investment is SatoshiPay so it goes without saying that if share price can succeed then it will deliver the greatest share price growth to BLU investors. However, there is a chance that may not happen for a while or at all. I believe BLU's share price can still go up from current levels on positive developments in the Esports investments. They are five esports companies that BLU have invested in. I believe if one or two of them take off then BLU could benefit as there are not many companies that give you exposure to five esports businesses. This could be achieved quicker than SatoshiPay delivering revenue growth and profits. This could deliver me a higher share price than 0.17p.
