In what seems to be a running theme at the moment when it comes to the crypto currency space, a little unknown company outside of the mainstream crypto bubble by the name of KR1 has emerged as a clear frontrunner for deep value play of the year according to people on twitter and I think they might be onto something.
Kryptonite 1, also known as KR1 trades on the over the counter market under the ticker symbol $KROEF as well as on the London Stock exchange under £KR1. The company is currently trading at a market capitalisation of £204m which is according to reports less than it’s net asset value…insane.
Credit where it’s due, twitter user @lolmcshizz does some absolutely fantastic analysis on unknown/niche crypto miners and crypto investment companies like KR1 and has brought a lot of this to our attention. What you can see from his tweet above is that KR1 are deeply invested in many different companies across the decentralised finance space such as Polkadot, Tidal finance, Ethereum and many more.
How comes they are undervalued then? Well, like we have seen with Argo blockchain being so deeply discounted in the last week caused for one reason or another by the outflow of money from Miners, KR1 is really difficult to understand as a business.
KR1 are apart of some many different projects that have enormous potential that it’s difficult to keep track of or at least value. Unlike let’s say an Insurance company that you can just look at the list of investments they have on their balance sheet on the public markets and value them at current prices, some of KR1 investments are niche, not very transparent and difficult to value. What makes it worse then is that even looking back on the 2019 annual report, the company doesn’t provide a the actual amount they have invested in each company so from a lazy mans perspective, its tough work. You will need to go through each RNS announcement to really understand the business as of right now.
Well, fortunately that’s where the value is found it looks to be in abundance here. Trading below the net asset value is what good old Warren Buffett would call buying a business for free. All of the future revenue you would generate in the coming days and months would be all yours, no debt, nothing. Could you ask for anything better?
Anyway, this isn’t financial advice and you should really do your own analysis but I think this looks like a fantastic company making smart investments. I am not currently invested but might be in the days ahead.
