How to Invest in Blockchain Stocks in 2021
Welcome to Episode #262 of the Zacks Market Edge Podcast.

How can you invest in blockchain stocks in 2021?
The last time Tracey and Dave got together to discuss the blockchain stocks was on July 3, 2018.
Back then, there were slim pickings but some familiar names.
Square ( SQ Quick Quote SQ - Free Report) was discussed three years ago but not because it had bought some Bitcoin like it's doing in 2020 and 2021.
CBOE Global Markets ( CBOE Quick Quote CBOE - Free Report) was also an investment option as it was the first to set up Bitcoin futures contracts in Dec 2017.
But that seems so quaint now given what is happening with the blockchain technology itself.
3 Companies with Blockchain Exposure in 2021
iClick Interactive, a Hong Kong based technology company, is utilizing the blockchain technology in a partnership with i-House.com, a global real estate blockchain cloud platform.

IBM ( IBM Quick Quote IBM - Free Report) has partnered with Maersk, the giant shipping company, for a blockchain shipping platform called TradeLens.
