Mr. Wonderful plans to invest in mining company stocks

Canadian businessman Kevin O’Leary laid out his plans to invest in mining company stocks. In an interview with Anthony Pompliano, Mr. Wonderful shared stories about his recent travels in the Middle East to find ways to invest in Bitcoin (BTC) mining. According to the Shark Tank mogul, investors in the Middle East are looking into “sovereign mining operations.”O’Leary also predicts that in the next 2-3 years, sovereign funds may decide to invest in Bitcoin mining. However, the businessman notes that the funds will choose mining businesses that use sustainable energy. Due to environment-related controversies, the eco-friendliness of mining operations is a crucial deciding factor for investors, according to the Canadian entrepreneur.The businessman also expressed his interest in opening his own mining operations. However, he explained that there are things that he is considering before this happens. He stated that aside from government approvals, the people who live in the community where the mining operations will take place must approve of the business.Aside from these, the entrepreneur also explained that Bitcoin mining companies must be able to track their BTC earnings in company balance sheets. This enables investors to buy the mining company stock and own BTC through equity. O’Leary notes that he will be investing in BTC through this process.Related: Kevin O’Leary-backed WonderFi to buy Bitbuy parent company for $162MBack in December, O’Leary also shared his thoughts on crypto investing with the public.

Why Kevin O'Leary thinks NFTs could become bigger than Bitcoin

Millionaire investor and crypto proponent Kevin O’Leary thinks that the NFT sector could be worth more than Bitcoin in the future. Speaking with CNBC’s Capital Connection on Jan. 5, O’Leary — also known as Mr. Wonderful — argued that NFTs provide a greater potential to attract capital than Bitcoin due to their ability to tokenize and authenticate physical assets such as cars, watches and real estate: “You’re going to see a lot of movement in terms of doing authentication and insurance policies and real estate transfer taxes all online over the next few years, making NFTs a much bigger, more fluid market potentially than just Bitcoin alone.”Mr. Wonderful admitted however, that he is not tied to that bet and will still be investing on “both sides of that equation.”The former crypto skeptic told Cointelegraph in a recent interview that his change in tune towards blockchain and digital assets was due to the growing trend of regulators warming up across the globe over the past couple of years. Not everyone agrees with comparisons between Bitcoin and NFTs however, with Coingecko digital marketing associate Khai Ren Kuan telling Cointelegraph that it’s “probably not fair to compare Bitcoin, which is a single asset, to NFTs which are an entire sector.”Kuan did note however, that the NFT adoption curve in 2022 is only going to increase upwards as the sector is still in its early days:“I think collectively if you look across all NFTs, and the fact that 2021 was year one of market adoption, there’s definitely still a lot of room to grow.”“We’ve already got a set of ‘blue chip’ NFTs, but I think the industry is still barely scratching the surface of what NFTs could be and what they could do, particularly if the Metaverse comes to fruition,” he added.Related: Global search interest for ‘NFT’ surpasses ‘crypto’ for the first time everCoingecko recently published a new book called “How to NFT” which provides a rundown for newbies entering the nonfugible space on how to buy, sell, store and mint NFTs. Questioned on whether he thinks the “NFT art narrative” will continue to dominate in 2022, or if the trend will shift towards utility-based NFTs, Kuan said: “Arts and collectibles are always going to be high on the list as they’re the most beginner-friendly and easiest to understand. In terms of utility NFTs I think what’s probably interesting to watch for is how some NFTs are going to both be art, and have utility.”“We’ve seen BAYC which the NFT doubles as membership into their ‘club’, and it really helps build a sense of identity and community,” he added.
