When it comes to cryptocurrency stocks, many of them fluctuate widely thanks to the up and down price of Bitcoin (CRYPTO:BTC). That seems to be the case for this cryptocurrency stock, which saw shares rise 8% this week, only to fall back slightly by 4% the next day.

However, when it comes to cryptocurrency, Galaxy Digital Holdings (TSX:GLXY) is still the only one I’d buy. Here’s why.

What happened?

As mentioned, the broader cryptocurrency market has seen a resurgence, with Bitcoin experiencing significant price increases. Galaxy Digital, being heavily involved in the crypto space, has benefited from this trend.

Most recently, Galaxy Digital has been involved in innovative projects, such as the tokenization of high-value assets like a 300-year-old Stradivarius violin into an NFT. Such initiatives highlight the company’s active role in leveraging blockchain technology for new financial solutions.

Furthermore, there has been a positive shift in political sentiment towards cryptocurrencies in the U.S., which has further buoyed market confidence in companies like Galaxy Digital. All of these have been factors influencing the most recent rise in share price for Galaxy stock.

In the green

However, it goes beyond outside factors when it comes to Galaxy Digital stock. Galaxy Digital reported impressive first-quarter financial results, with a net income of $422 million, marking significant growth from the previous quarter. This strong financial performance has boosted investor confidence.

Furthermore, the company’s revenue has seen significant growth due to the rising value of its digital asset portfolio and higher trading volumes. Galaxy Digital’s Bitcoin mining operations also contributed to its strong financial performance, reporting record revenues in this segment.

What’s more, analysts have raised their price targets for Galaxy Digital, reflecting optimism about its future performance. For instance, Canaccord Genuity increased its target price from $17 to $23, maintaining a “buy” rating, indicating strong future growth potential.

More to come? 

Overall, Galaxy Digital’s strong financial performance, coupled with favourable market dynamics and positive regulatory developments, has contributed to its recent stock price rise and ongoing momentum. But more could certainly be on the way.

Part of this is because Galaxy Digital stock is a more diversified business than dependence on cryptocurrency prices alone. Expansion into providing blockchain solutions for enterprises, including supply chain management, finance, and healthcare, can drive growth. As blockchain technology finds more use cases beyond cryptocurrencies, Galaxy Digital’s involvement in such initiatives can significantly enhance its valuation. 

The launch of diversified digital asset investment funds catering to various investor profiles, including risk-averse and high-risk takers, can attract a broader client base. These funds can include a mix of cryptocurrencies, blockchain companies, and other digital assets.

Furthermore, Galaxy stock has been known for its global presence and acquisitions. Should it continue to expand in these ways, shares could also continue to climb.

Bottom line 

By leveraging these diversified investment strategies and focusing on innovation, regulatory engagement, and strategic partnerships, Galaxy Digital can enhance its market position and drive further growth beyond the fluctuations of cryptocurrency prices. So, while shares might be more influenced by the price of Bitcoin these days, looking ahead there could be a lot more growth for this cryptocurrency stock.
