In October, Haywood Securities analyst Gianluca Tucci identified WNDR as a very interesting Canadian player in the space.
“With crypto prices surging over 25% the last few weeks to ~US$35k, WNDR is well positioned to grow as Canada’s regulated crypto trading platform,” he argued. “There is market speculation that a BlackRock bitcoin ETF is in the works, which would mark a significant catalyst for the industry – the BlackRock ETF now appears on the website of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corp., a key market utility in the U.S. that processes all securities transactions. A crypto/bitcoin ETF would make it significantly easier to buy the asset, likely materially increasing the pool of potential investors. We remind readers that WNDR owns 3 of the 10 registered retail crypto trading platforms in Canada and maintains an early mover competitive advantage in the market. We also remind readers that WNDR’s infrastructure generated $118M in proforma 2021 revenue, highlighting the positive correlation its business has to crypto asset prices.”
