What is Netflix?
From a DVD-by-mail service Netflix has grown into the most influential media and entertainment giant. In 2007, the company was at the forefront of streaming technology. It started the transition to a subscription video-on-demand business model, which resulted in an annual revenue growth from $1.36bn to $15.8bn in 10 years.
The number of Netflix subscribers has grown proportionately, from 22 million in 2011 to almost 150 million in 2019. According to Statista.com, the service is used by 37 per cent of all internet users globally. Despite the international exposure, the United States remains the number-one market with more than 60 million Netflix subscribers.
Today, the SVoD (subscription video on-demand) industry is in the middle of the so-called “streaming wars”. Netflix's major rivals, occupying significant share of the market, are Amazon Prime Video and Hulu.
The company’s major competitive edge is its massive pool of original content. Netflix has produced more than 300 original content titles and this number is constantly growing. Continued success of the media service is supported by the popularity of its shows, including Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, House of Cards and many others. Over the years, the company has been successfully adapting to new consumer demands and changing technologies. It continues the trend of innovation and remains an important player in the entertainment and media sector.
How to invest in Netflix stocks
You have several options when trading in the stock market. Firstly, you can buy shares in companies on the exchanges where they are listed. For instance, you can invest in NFLX shares on the NASDAQ stock exchange, so you actually own a share in the company. This can be considered a long-term investment, as the trader is usually waiting for the price to rise over time.
Alternatively, you can trade a tokenised version of a particular stock and speculate on the price difference of the underlying asset without actually owning it. Tokenised assets mirror the price movement of an underlying, real asset such as NFLX share, and provide the same chances for profit as traditional assets.
A tokenised security is a blockchain-powered tradable financial asset, which meets all the regulatory requirements of the country in which it is born. The best thing here is that tokenised assets allow you to trade and profit from the underlying market price of traditional assets using your crypto holdings. You no longer have to exchange them to fiat.
If you choose to invest in Netflix stock through tokenised assets, you can follow the tokenised Netflix shares price live in US dollars with the comprehensive NFLX share price chart on Currency.com. This gives you plenty of time to monitor the company’s activity and keep an eye out for any events that may affect short-term fluctuations in the Netflix shares price.
You can either hold a long position (speculating that the price will rise) or a short position (speculating that the price will fall). This is considered a short-term investment. The key difference between trading a long position with a tokenised asset and actually buying a asset is the leverage that is employed. Tokenised assets are traded on margin, which means that a trader can open larger positions with their capital.
