NANOTECHNOLOGY COMPANY IS CROSSING A NEW FRONTIER AND IS DISRUPTING THREE MASSIVE INDUSTRIES
Billionaires like Musk, Branson, and Bezos are racing each other to be the first to launch themselves into space, joke digital coins have billion dollar market caps, and previously unfathomable technology is our new normal.
Movies like Terminator or Star Trek may have seemed like impossibilities at one point, and their technological predictions were shocking to be sure. However, we’ve seen incredible, so-called “impossible” advancements regularly in the past decade.
A new but mind-blowing technology called “nanotechnology” is the next frontier for human advancement, and it just might change the entire landscape of some of the biggest markets out there.
A traditionally farming-based industry, hemp is ripe for nanotechnology disruption. The $28.5 billion hemp extraction market loses billions every year due to inefficient technologies.
But, that isn’t all this company is doing…
Disrupting the Multi-Billion Gold Mining Industry, the CV-19 Diagnostic Market AND the $28.5 Billion Extract Industry
- The gold mining industry, which produces over 3,000 metric tons of gold each year1. At current prices of about $1,775/oz2 that equates to over $187 billion worth of gold annually.
- The CV-19 diagnostic market, which Grandview Research puts at $105.6 billion in 20213.
- The green extract industry, a market Grandview Research estimates will reach $28.5 billion by 20274
Now, the possible applications for MIPs nanotechnology go far beyond these three markets.
But Sixth Wave Innovations (CSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWFCSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWF) is not just focused on science – it is first and foremost a business, with the intention of creating as much value for investors as possible.
That’s why the company is only using its MIPs nanotechnology in industries where it can create higher yields, greater scale, increased stability, cost and time savings, and operational simplicity.
Because helping others make more money is one of the surest paths of making money yourself.
The company is also doing all this with a lean operating model, with its technology being the main driver of value.
So, while it’s not quite software, this makes the company far more scalable than a traditional manufacturer.
And the good news for investors?
They have an opportunity to get in just as the company is commercializing its extraction product – while also making rapid progress on its diagnostic devices and negotiating key gold mining partnerships.
Because based on recent initial inquiries alone, the potential of just its green extraction product line could be worth hundreds of millions in revenue each year.
- It Could Add $10.5 Billion in Incremental Margins for the Gold Mining Industry Each Year. The company’s IXOS® product is estimated to save gold miners $100/oz in the gold production process5, which could equate to $10.5 billion a year.
- Its MIPs Nanotechnology has Already Shown it can Detect CV-196AND the UK and South African Variants.7 The company has already proven its proof of concept and is moving forward with product development. The company’s future “smart masks” could change the entire rapid test diagnostic landscape.
- A Lean Operating Model Combined with an Aggressive Global Patenting Program. The company is keeping its operating model lean and flexible by relying on manufacturing partners to do the heavy lifting. The value lies in their MIPs nanotechnology, which they are protecting through an aggressive patenting program in both the US and at least 40 other countries.
- A Team of Business and Scientific Geniuses. With a team that includes 7 PhD members (including the founder), they have a proven business track record of developing and closing multi-million dollar development programs and overseeing large capital raises.
- It Could Save Hemp Companies Billions in Extraction Costs. The company’s Affinity™ product cuts the complex extraction process from seven steps to three with savings of about $200/kg – without the need for a lot of space, skilled staff, or regular replacements8.
- Its Extraction Product Line Could Potentially Generate Hundreds of Millions in Revenue per Year. The company estimates that each Affinity™ machine would generate about $1.2 million in annual revenues. Even at this stage, the company has already received inquiries for over 250 units9, which by itself would equate to a potential annual revenue of $300 million.
- Commercial Rollout of its Green Extraction Product Line is Just Beginning. With the final manufacturing design for the Affinity™ product now finalized, the first units are expected to ship by the end of the year10.
Ushering in a New Era of Efficiency for Gold Mining - Sixth Wave Can Get MORE Gold out of the Same Rock!
For over 100 years, the mining industry has used activated carbon to extract gold from the mined ores.
The current process is riddled with inefficiencies:
- After the activated carbon has bonded with the gold from the ores, it takes a complex, expensive, and time-consuming process (over 18 hours) to separate the gold from the carbon
- Activated carbon breaks down too easily, and the gold bonded to these fine particles can no longer be separated, creating wastage
- Activated carbon also attracts other base metals like copper, causing wasted time and materials
- After the MIPs beads bond with the gold molecules, it only takes 30 minutes to separate the gold from the MIPs beads (which can then be reused)
- The MIPs beads won’t break down, and can even hold 10x the gold capacity per kilogram compared to activated carbon
- Because MIPs are specifically “imprinted” to gold molecules, it won’t inadvertently bond with other base metals instead
In short, IXOS® results in higher yields, lower costs, and quicker processing – while also being much more environmentally-friendly.
Based on the company’s conclusive pilot tests, IXOS® would result in $100 in total savings for every ounce of gold mined (plus a 30% lower plant setup cost).
And considering that over 3,000 metric tonnes – more than 105 million ounces – of gold is produced each year11, IXOS® could result in $10.5 billion per year in incremental margins for the industry.
The company expects to collect about 30% of these incremental margins – about $30/oz – as revenue, giving it a total market opportunity of $3.15 billion per year.
That means even a 1% market share is $31.5 million in annual revenues, with a 5% market share equating to $157.5 million in yearly revenues.
Now, because most gold mines are outside North America, CV-19 has put a lot of the company’s planned partnerships on hold.
But as global vaccination progress continues to ramp up and borders slowly reopen, most of these could come roaring back – especially once the gold miners see firsthand just how much savings IXOS® can give them.
Hemp companies must accelerate their shift into higher margin businesses like oils and tinctures.
That’s why the extract market is expanding so quickly and is expected to hit $28.5 billion in 2027.
Every major hemp company uses C02 extraction.
Unlike cheaper methods like ethanol or hydrocarbon extraction, it captures the full profile of flavonoids and carotenoids that separate the “passable” from the “great”.
The final product is “pure”, with no trace amounts of solvents like butane and propane in the final product (a potential byproduct of the other methods)12.
Plus, there’s no safety risk from dealing with highly flammable substances13.
But while C02 extraction is the “industry gold standard”, it’s also the most expensive method by far.
Which is why the ability to make the C02 extraction process more efficient and cost-effective is immensely valuable – and could be the key to helping unlock sustainable profitability for the industry.
It could all come down to this simple looking machine.
Called the Affinity™, it can cut the traditional C02 extraction process – where up to 50% of product can be lost in the final four steps – from this:
It does this by using MIPs beads to “grab” the particles at a molecular level.
Not only does this result in higher yields, but it also slashes the setup costs of the final four steps by about 87.5%. Most of the processes are automated, meaning minimal staff training is required (resulting in further cost savings).
And instead of using the “printer cartridge” business model where the printer machine is cheap but they rake customers over the coals for the replacement cartridges, Sixth Wave Innovations (CSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWFCSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWF) offering hemp producers an unbeatable deal:
We only make money when you make money.
The company is planning to only charge the hemp producers per kilo of output, since even including its fee, these producers will still save hundreds of dollars per kilo of extract produced (and this doesn’t even account for the 10% to 15% higher yields).
But although it will not charge for replacing the MIPs beads in the machines, the cost to the company will be minimal.
Why? Because the company has perfected its MIPs nanotechnology to the point where the MIPs beads can be reused again and again.
This ingenious business model – combined with the technology – gives the company the potential for massive scale with minimal additional overhead.
Considering all the advantages that the Affinity™ offers to licensed producers, it’s no surprise that interest is quickly building.
The company has already signed an MOU for three units from an Oregon-based licensed processor.
And it has received inquiries for 250 units from over 135 licensed licensed producers from all over the world14.
Sixth Wave Innovations (CSE:SIXW) (OTCQB:SIXWF) is a Potentially Lucrative Acquisition Target
With competition in the hemp industry intensifying, a company that gets the sole and exclusive use of this technology could create an almost unbeatable competitive advantage.
Once Sixth Wave Innovations (CSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWFCSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWF) starts to officially deliver its Affinity™ units in the next few months – and licensed producers witness firsthand its advantages – it would not be a surprise to see a “bidding war” break out.
As Benzinga reports15:
We’ve already seen megadeals like:
- Jazz Pharmaceuticals $7.6 billion acquisition of GW Pharmaceuticals in May 2021 16
- Tilray and Aphria’s $3.8 billion merger in December 202017
- Trulieve buying Harvest Health for $2.1 billion in May 202118
Not to mention multiple other “smaller” deals like HEXO’s $750 million acquisition of Redecan in May 202119 or Columbia Care’s $240 million buyout of Green Leaf Medical in June 202120.
And with Sixth Wave Innovations’ (CSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWFCSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWF) valued at just C$26.2 million as of July 2, 202121, an opportunity like this may never come again for these companies – or for investors.
Because once the Affinity™ product is rolled out and the company gains momentum, it could soon become a leading extraction company worth hundreds of millions.
In fact, Sixth Wave Innovations (CSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWFCSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWF) could become a superior version of The Valens Company, a leading Canadian extraction company worth C$526.9 million as of July 2, 202122.

Because, remember, Sixth Wave Innovations (CSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWFCSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWF) keep its costs low thanks to its external manufacturing partners, with the company’s value coming from its MIPs nanotechnology that is secured by a fortress of global patents.
This gives it a technological and scalability advantage over other hemp extraction companies.
And this doesn’t even account for its solutions in other verticals like gold mining and rapid testing.
The Future of the $105.6 Billion CV-19 Diagnostic Market?
Although Sixth Wave Innovations (CSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWFCSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWF) is channeling most of its focus toward launching its Affinity™ product (and waiting for the borders to reopen), its science team isn’t just sitting idle.
They’ve been working on the company’s rapid testing product line, where MIPs will be used to detect the CV-19 virus – just like the original SAFE-T product did for explosives.
The company has already successfully shown the technology can detect both the UK and South African variants24.
It has partnered with the Alberta Center for Advanced Micro/Nanotechnology Products to integrate the center’s advanced RFID technology with the MIPs test into N95 “smart masks”25.
Imagine how valuable a mask that can instantly tell someone if they are CV-19 positive would be.
Especially because experts are saying that the coronavirus is “here to stay”26.
That’s why Grandview Research estimates the size of the CV-19 diagnostic market to remain almost unchanged at $104.7 billion in 2027 (compared to $105.6 billion in 2021)27.
Meaning that although a final product is unlikely to be completed this year, it is still a powerful longer-term growth catalyst for Sixth Wave Innovations (CSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWFCSE:SIXW, OTCQB:SIXWF).
Plus, although CV19 is the current focus, the company is also exploring how the technology could be used to detect other viruses like HIV and hepatitis.
