Cascadia Announced Major Breakthrough In Blockchiain Industy

Canada has achieved yet another world’s first title in the Blockchain industry with the world’s first private placement entirely in Bitcoin

Vancouver, Canada - January 13, 2018 /PressReleaseAgency/ —

In addition to having the titles of the world’s first Bitcoin ATM and the world’s first reversed take-over transaction in the blockchain industry, Canada has once again secured its leadership with yet another world’s first title in the blockchain industry.  This time the historical milestone was made by Cascadia Consumer Electronics Corp. Cascadia, a Canadian publicly listed company in transition to the blockchain and fintech sectors.  Cascadia announced the completion of 425 bitcoin private placement, valued at US$ 6.12 million or C$7.71 million in total, on December 29, 2017, just one short week after its initial announcement of such plan.

“The lightning speed of execution is in-line with the pace of development in the blockchain industry. This historical milestone was made possible by a team of our internal staff and external advisors who have shown their dedication and capabilities to address various regulatory, legal and technical hurdles. This also showcases the high level of enthusiasm and support from the industry investors. Cascadia will be able to accelerate our transition and expansion into the blockchain and fintech sectors, pending approval from CSE on our proposed business change.” said Rachel Wang, Chief Executive Officer of Cascadia in the company’s press release announcing the completion of the private placement. According to Cascadia’s public filing, several well-known Asian institutional investors specialized in the blockchain and cryptocurrency sectors, such as FBG Capital, BitCapital, ChainFunder, Qtum, Nebulas, aelf participated in this round of Cascadia’s private placement.

In recent years, many new start-ups are using ICOs (or “Initial Coin Offerings”) to raise the necessary capital.  However, cryptocurrencies seem not very commonly used or accepted in the traditional capital market.  The Cascadia’s financing round entirely on cryptocurrencies is really the first time where there is a cross-over between the new fintech sector and the traditional capital market, proving that these two are not necessarily mutually exclusive from each other.

Cryptocurrencies is considered as a new form of digitalized representation on values of a project, a business, an asset or individual’s and institution’s wealth. This cross-over will have significant impact on the traditional capital market because the completion of a financing round entirely with cryptocurrencies by a publicly listed company will attract many others to follow. This will not only increase the additional investment and funding sources for publicly listed companies under the traditional capital market, but also widely broaden the investment opportunities available to cryptocurrency holders.  It is not difficult to imagine that this is just the beginning of a new era and in the foreseeable future, it is likely to see more innovative and creative transaction structure involving both the traditional capital market and the new fintech sector.

New technology only adds to baseball's culture of paranoia

Oct 19, 2018

It probably felt like a cutting-edge caper at the time: The New York Giants, using an elaborate spyglass-and-buzzer system, would have the opposing team's signs relayed from their center-field clubhouse at the Polo Grounds to the bullpen and then to the batter, passing along valuable information during the team's pursuit of the 1951 pennant. The question nowadays is whether there's an app for that. Stealing signs is as much a part of baseball tradition as stealing bases, but the technology available now could open a whole new frontier of competitive sleuthing. The latest flare-up came when a man associated with...

20 men jailed for sex abuse of teenagers in northern England

Oct 19, 2018

LONDON — Twenty men have been jailed for raping and abusing more than a dozen girls in a northern England town, in what a judge called a "vile and wicked" campaign of exploitation. The men in the town of Huddersfield were found guilty in three trials this year, but the verdicts could not be reported until a judge lifted reporting restrictions Friday. The cases are the latest in a series of prosecutions in northern English towns and cities for child sexual exploitation involving men of mostly Pakistani heritage. The men were accused of being part of a gang that groomed...

US stocks turn mixed at midday after an early gain fades

Oct 19, 2018

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks are turning mixed Friday after an early gain faded away, capping a week of unusually choppy trading. Consumer products maker Procter & Gamble is surging after reporting strong sales of beauty products in its latest quarter, while credit card company American Express also jumped. Health care companies are falling, and technology and internet companies and retailers continue to struggle. While stocks are on track to finish the week slightly higher, most of the market's recent gains have been swiftly followed by losses. The S&P 500 hasn't risen two days in a row since Sept. 20,...

Mega Millions jackpot hits $1B, thanks to worsening odds

Oct 19, 2018

DES MOINES, Iowa — If it seems like lottery jackpots are getting larger and larger, it's because they are getting larger and larger. Friday night's Mega Millions estimated grand prize has hit a staggering $1 billion, continuing a trend of giant jackpots. It's the second-largest lottery prize in U.S. history and joins five other top 10 drawings in the last three years. Lottery officials changed the odds in recent years to lessen the chance of winning a jackpot, which in turn increased the opportunity for top prizes to reach stratospheric levels. A look at how the numbers work out: WHY...

Shooter in Colorado Walmart slayings of 3 faces sentencing

Oct 19, 2018

BRIGHTON, Colo. — The man who pleaded guilty to gunning down three people in a suburban Denver Walmart last year will be sentenced Friday, but more than 11 months after the crime, his motive remains a mystery. A judge is expected to send 48-year-old Scott Ostrem to prison for the rest of life without parole, part of a deal Ostrem made with prosecutors to avoid a potential death sentence for first-degree murder. Ostrem walked into a Walmart in Thornton the evening of Nov. 1, 2017, opened fire and left without saying anything, witnesses said. Investigators said he fired seven times...
