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.

Soccer activist says political rhetoric stirs racist chants

Aug 14, 2018

LONDON — So much still frustrates the man at the forefront of eradicating discrimination from English soccer. While teams are more diverse, there remains a distinct lack of black and ethnic minority coaches and executives in positions of power. The atmosphere at matches is not as toxic as 25 years ago, when Herman Ouseley laid the foundations for the Kick It Out organization, but abuse targeting players is increasingly moving from the stands to the anonymity of the internet. And as a member of the House of Lords, the 73-year-old Ouseley is particularly wary of how outbursts from politicians can...

LONDON — British retailer Sports Direct said Friday that it has bought struggling department store chain House of Fraser after the 169-year-old business went into administration. In an announcement to the London Stock Exchange, Sports Direct said it has acquired House of Fraser's British stores, the brand and all of the stock in the business for 90 million pounds ($115 million).

New Zealand to ban plastic shopping bags from next year

Aug 14, 2018

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — New Zealand announced Friday it will ban disposable plastic shopping bags by next July as the nation tries to live up to its clean-and-green image. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said New Zealanders use hundreds of millions of the bags each year and that some of them end up polluting precious coastal and marine waterways. Ardern made the announcement at a beachside cafe and said it was the single biggest issue that school children write to her about. She had three children read aloud their letters, before she led several dozen children on a cleanup along the...

Saudi effort to punish Canada seems to have little effect

Aug 14, 2018

TORONTO — When Saudi Arabia ordered its citizens studying in Canada to abruptly leave the country it left institutions like Techno Canada in the lurch, forcing the small Toronto business school to scramble for new students in the middle of the summer. But that doesn't mean the school's director wants his government to abandon its advocacy of civil rights in Saudi Arabia, which prompted the worst diplomatic rift in history between the two countries. "I am very much with my government to stand up for human rights," the head of Techno Canada, Basu Mukherjee, said as he conceded the loss...

Twitter CEO defends decision not to ban Alex Jones, Infowars

Aug 14, 2018

LONDON — Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey defended his company's decision not to ban right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his "Infowars" show, as many other social media platforms have done, saying he did not break any rules. Facebook, Apple, YouTube and Spotify took down over the past week material published by Jones, reflecting more aggressive enforcement of their hate speech policies after rising online backlash and raising pressure on Twitter to do the same. Jones' Facebook account has also been suspended for 30 days but he still has a "verified" Twitter account. A separate Twitter account for "Infowars" is also...
