PHUN Stock News
*Written October 22, 2021
PHUN is an integrated software company that offers mobile application, location tracking, blockchain, and advertising software. PHUN’s most recent catalyst was its acquisition of the privately-held Lyte Technology Inc. Lyte is a rapidly growing system integrator with a loyal and growing customer base. With this acquisition, PHUN can begin entering the high-performance personal computer market.
The HPC market is currently valued at $32 billion with a staggering CAGR of over 20% over the next five years. If this holds true, the market will more than double in the next five years, offering a great market opportunity to meet the sector’s rapidly growing demand. As is, Lyte’s technology and following will allow PHUN to deploy its decentralized data economy powered by PhunCoin and PhunToken. Therefore, this acquisition is part of the company’s plans to expand into the crypto market to seize upcoming blockchain initiatives which could land PHUN stock among hot stocks to buy now.
While the company hasn’t released any news that would constitute the pre-market surge, the 280% increase is likely in tangent with DWAC’s run up because of PHUN’s link to former President Donald Trump. Partnering with American Made Media Consultants, PHUN developed the official Trump 2020 mobile application solidifying it as part of the network of services for the 2020 Trump-Pence reelection campaign.
Since the announcement of TRUTH social‘s launch, investors have begun speculating that PHUN is involved with the platform’s development. While no official announcements have been made, the speculation and momentum following gains from DWAC appears strong enough to drive PHUN’s value in a sympathy play – potentially landing PHUN on many investors’ lists of hot stocks to buy.
Over the last three months, PHUN has witnessed an over 40% increase due to their expansion and Lyte acquisition. Despite today’s tantalizing surge, PHUN was already expected to see a value change due to the company’s continuing growth. However, the runup has likely overvalued the company and a future value correction should be expected.

Since its acquisition of LYTE, PHUN has been working to expand its offerings’ reach as it looks to build its own blockchain ecosystem. For this reason, PHUN launched its own cryptocurrency – PhunCoin – making it the first publicly listed company to launch a cryptocurrency. This coin will facilitate all actions in PHUN’s ecosystem which has made the company issue the coin initially through Securitize – the first blockchain-enabled transfer agent registered with the SEC. In this way, PhunCoin is considered to be one of the first regulated cryptocurrencies designed for mainstream adoption.
Meanwhile, PhunCoin is pivotal in helping PHUN commercialize its decentralized data economy where customers could control their own data and get compensated when their data is purchased by brands. In light of this, PHUN stock could be poised for significant growth once the company’s ecosystem is completed successfully.
As for its other digital asset, PhunToken became available on Uniswap. At the same time, PHUN launched a new PhunToken website to improve users’ experience by supporting user generated content curation, liquidity deposits and yield farming for earning additional rewards. With the company constantly working to grow the PhunToken ecosystem, brands and consumers will be able to utilize the token to access the features of PHUN’s MaaS platform which allows for contextual engagement. Based on this, PHUN stock could have major long-term potential when this ecosystem is fully developed.
In terms of its MaaS business, PHUN has been working extensively to develop this business as it partnered with PrimusTech to expand its mobile offerings in the Asian market. Through this partnership, PHUN’s portfolio of smart solutions on mobile and its MaaS platform would be available to additional users since PrimusTech is considered to be an industry leader in the Asian market. In this way, PHUN could be set for significant financial growth in the future thanks to this partnership.
Moreover, PHUN entered into a strategic partnership with Accion Labs to provide mobile solutions for digital transformation. According to this partnership, Accion will be designated as a preferred partner in the implementation and customization of PHUN’s MaaS platform. At the same time, PHUN would be able to leverage Accion’s infrastructure to support its clients that require additional services beyond MaaS.
As a result of this partnership, PHUN appears to be poised for significant growth since its MaaS platform would become the mobile solution of choice for Accion’s international digital transformation services across 22 countries. Meanwhile, this partnership could allow PHUN to strike deals with some of the world’s largest brands who are already working with Accion to enhance their cloud and digital transformation services with its unique mobile solutions. In light of this, PHUN stock price could be well-positioned to increase in value in the future once the company realizes the full potential of this partnership.
Given the substantial potential of the company’s MaaS platform, PHUN has taken steps to protect its technology. With this in mind, the company was issued a Notice of Allowance for a patent application entitled “Monitoring Outdoor and Indoor Regions with Mobile Devices”. By expanding its MaaS platform’s patent portfolio with this patent, PHUN could develop a new service for monitoring a user who crosses from an outdoor location via GPS to an indoor location via Wi-Fi networks. As such a technology could be extremely valuable, PHUN stock appears to be well-positioned for significant growth in the long-term.
Considering the company’s prior participation in politics as the foundation for the Trump 2020 mobile application portfolio, PHUN has a major opportunity to capitalize on the ongoing midterm elections and the upcoming 2024 presidential election. For this reason, PHUN integrated its Smart Advocacy Solution with Twitter to capitalize on politicians’ need for creative ways to ensure that their target audiences are well-informed. Meanwhile, PHUN expects to integrate additional platforms as more social platforms make third-party feature sets available. With more integrations on the way, PHUN stock could be one to hold onto for the long-term as its solutions could be extremely valuable.
Meanwhile, PHUN stock is gaining investors’ attention thanks to its connection with former president Trump. Considering the company’s role in Trump’s campaign in 2020, PHUN soared more than 37% on the rumors that Trump would run for the 2024 presidential elections. With growing speculations that Trump could make such an announcement on November 15th, PHUN stock could be poised to witness another run-up if these speculations are true. Based on this, it could be a smart investment to accumulate shares of PHUN ahead of this major catalyst.
