Wolters Kluwer Publishes White Paper Explaining SEC Guidance on Cryptocurrency

Wolters Kluwer publishes white paper explaining SEC guidance on cryptocurrency, other digital asset trading platforms

Investors Should Proceed with Caution in Evolving Regulatory Landscape 

May 3, 2018 — Wolters Kluwer today announced the release of a new white paper, SEC Warns Cryptocurrency Trading Platforms Raise Significant Federal Securities Laws Compliance and Liability Risks. The white paper examines recent Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) guidance that some online trading platforms may not be registered with the SEC, meaning related protections and SEC oversight would not be available.

According to the white paper, investors and other market participants need to be aware that not all cryptocurrencies and blockchain-related assets are the same. With no bright line distinction, market participants need to proceed with caution to avoid the unexpected application of federal securities laws to each particular cryptocurrency or cryptocurrency-like asset, including Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs).

More specifically, the white paper examines the SEC’s public statement entitled, “Statement on Potentially Unlawful Online Platforms for Trading Digital Assets.” In addition, the white paper provides analysis of the following:

• What is a security for SEC purposes?
• Does the SEC consider cryptocurrencies or other tokens to be securities?
• What are the risks of commodity regulation for cryptocurrency and digital asset platforms?
• What is the industry and community response to this guidance?

“In light of how rapidly the cryptocurrency and cryptocurrency-related markets change, both investors and participants should proceed carefully given the recent warnings issued by the SEC and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission,” said Stevie Conlon, Vice President and Regulatory Tax Counsel for Wolters Kluwer. “The purpose of this white paper is to alert investors and participants to recent SEC guidance regarding risks concerning certain cryptocurrency exchanges and offerings under federal securities law.”

WESTBURY INVESTMENTS Makes History

Westbury Investments makes history, becoming the first ever real estate & property investments company to accept cryptocurrency

Investors and buyers will now be able to buy or invest in Real Estate & Properties using the digital currency.

London based Real Estate Investments company broke new ground this week by becoming the first ever Property & Real Estate Investments company to accept Cryptocurrency for investments in real estate.  Westbury Investments will now allow its investors and buyers to use digital currency as a mode of payment for buying properties in Dubai UAE for its ongoing projects in partnership with Dubai’s award winning & most emerging developer Samana Developers.

Westbury Investments move is a big boon to Cryptocurrency and Blockchain legitimacy. It also galvanizes Westbury’s reputation as a Real Estate Fintech pioneer.

With the aggressive emergence of innovative and reputable Blockchain platforms, UK has established itself as a major Fintech and Blockchain hub in Europe.

The new benchmark has been set by Westbury Investments and Samana Developers, taking advantage of a more secured and decentralised mode of payment, compared to the existing traditional methods, where initiating an international payment often involves the participation and involvement of multiple intermediaries and a complex system of procedures that results in long waiting times and expensive intermediary transaction fees.

The transparent and secure nature of the Blockchain makes it an incredibly effective solution in carrying out transactions of this nature. With analysts believing, that acceptance of digital currency as a mode of payment will become common practice in the near future for similar high net worth Real Estate & Property Investment transactions worldwide.

Westbury Investments in partnership with Samana Developers recently launched “SAMANA GREENS”, Dubai’s new upmarket master community. An affordable Dubai dream, located in the heart of Arjan within Dubailand which is also a prime location for Dubai Expo 2020. 30% of the Apartments were sold before the pre-launch due to an increasing demand from Investors around the world to invest in Dubai. According to the report issued by DLD’s Department of Real Estates Studies and Research, Q1 2018 saw a total of 9,092 sales transaction worth about $5.2 billion, 3,717 mortgage transactions worth over $8.3 billion, and 950 other transactions valued at $2.3 billion.

“Many people around the world have invested in cryptocurrencies, and a lot of these people are also the regular investors in the real estate and properties, So it makes sense to offer a digital currency as a mode of payment for property buying and investments providing utility to existing cryptocurrencies.”, said Asim Bhutto – Chairman Westbury Investments.

Asim Bhutto further added,  that reputable exchanges & digital currency wallet platforms which follow KYC and AML regulations, would handle the transactions at the time of payment.

Providing utility to digital currencies is a feather in the cap for United Kingdom, where Westbury Investments is headquartered, which is very quickly becoming recognized as the fintech capital of the world.

Imran Farooq, CEO of Samana Group of Companies, said: “As a developer with a futuristic vision, Samana Greens will be based on green building concepts. It is befitting to help the customers to give the freedom to choose their preferred mode of payments be it traditional payment methods or cryptocurrency which is gaining popularity every day.

Hasnain Bayar of Boom Media Network, PR and Marketing specialist in the Real Estate & Digital Currency sector who advised Westbury Investments officials to accept Cryptocurrency, is optimistic about the move. He asserts that accepting Cryptocurrency will give Westbury Investments a competitive advantage in the Dubai Real Estate & Property market, as investors in Cryptocurrency would be able to utilise their digital currency with this added utility.

Asim Bhutto is very optimistic about this innovative initiative and said, “With everything related to Westbury Investments & Cryptocurrencies , there is lot more yet to come”, Westbury Investments will be introducing similar mode of payments via digital currencies for its UK based Real Estate and Property projects, allowing both UK based and Overseas Investors to Invest in UK Real Estate market using the cryptocurrency.

CoinGeek to fund StackLab’s blockchain training program

CoinGeek to fund StackLab’s blockchain training program

CoinGeek.com is committed to building Bitcoin BCH (also known as Bitcoin Cash) into a global, low-fee peer-to-peer digital currency and there are many strands that need enhancing for that to become a reality.

The first is merchant adoption which is happening as we speak and CoinGeek are hosting a bComm conference to showcase BCH to merchants in Hong Kong on May 18th.

Another important need is to train more developers to work in blockchain technology, because experienced blockchain developers are in short supply. CoinGeek.com and its own Calvin Ayre are doing their part by contributing over USD $150,000 to fund a blockchain developer training program in the Philippines, the world’s second largest IT outsourcing destination. CoinGeek are partnering on the venture with StackLab (a StackTrek Enterprises’ company), the on-the-ground operator for the training program.

StackLab seeks to create technology hubs in next-generation cities of the Philippines, and the first of its blockchain training programs will be in the city of Iloilo.

A minimum of 50 developers will be trained on developments skills focusing on the Bitcoin BCH blockchain. Trainees will be selected at a coding tournament using a the world’s most unbiased programmer capability evaluation test, which was funded by the World Bank and is recognized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE); only participants testing in the top two levels (top 2% and 11%) will qualify for the StackLab program. After the complete the 6-month training program, the developer trainees will receive support from StackLab to find employment – with the aim of transforming developing cities such as Iloilo into new technology centers for the Philippines.

Also joining the program will be nChain, the global leader in blockchain research and development based in London, United Kingdom. nChain will help shape the training program curriculum, and provide projects for the trainees to work on. The training programs will be focused on coding on the Bitcoin BCH chain, the one true public blockchain.

This initiative is another of Calvin Ayre’s many social initiatives for the Philippines.

Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (segwit) Chain are Referred to as BTC coins. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is today the only Bitcoin implementation that follows Satoshi Nakamoto’s original whitepaper for Peer to Peer Electronic Cash. Bitcoin BCH is the only major public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin as fast, frictionless, electronic cash.
First shirt sponsorship deal paid in Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

First shirt sponsorship deal paid in Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

…and paid for with profits from BCH appreciation

Bodog drops Ayr United as a new sponsor steps in: Bodog’s seven-year association with Ayr United has come to an end with CoinGeek.com, a supporter of both The Honest Men and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) coming in to take over the shirt branding of Ayr United.

CoinGeek.com is the backer behind the deal but the club shirt will be physically branded by the cryptocurrency Bitcoin BCH, the only true blockchain coin, in a true global first.

Ayr United’s Commercial Director Graeme Miller explains: “We were initially approached to see whether we could accept sponsorship payment in BCH. It was a big learning curve for us but we are very happy to be the first club to accept not just payment by BCH but also to promote the cryptocurrency to a wider audience.”

BCH is considered to be the one true form of Bitcoin as intended by its creator Satoshi Nakamoto back in 2008. With very low transaction fees BCH is better for both the merchant and the customer.

Long-time BCH advocate, Bodog founder and owner of CoinGeek.com, Calvin Ayre commented: “I think its great for BCH that such boundaries and promotional ideas are being used to show merchants and consumers that BCH really is the only true bitcoin.”

…but what of the ever-controversial kit launch? Wait and see!

Note: Tokens in the SegWit chain are referred to as SegWit-Coin BTC (inaccurately called Bitcoin Legacy or Core by many) and SegWit Gold (SWG) and are no longer Bitcoin. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is the only true Bitcoin as intended by the original Satoshi white paper.  Bitcoin BCH is the only public block chain that offers safe and cheap microtransactions.

World-renowned advertising agency to provide design and creative services for pioneering blockchain-based recruitment platform

NEW YORK, April 10, 2018 – Following the announcement of its blockchain-based job matching platform, Job.com today announced that it is the first blockchain company to work with the world’s leading advertising agency, McCann. With over 100 years of experience and offices in 120 countries, McCann has worked with some of the largest, global brands including Coca-Cola, Nescafe, Microsoft, Mastercard, and GM. Now taking on its first client in the blockchain sector, McCann is leading the creative efforts for Job.com as the platform prepares for its launch later this year.

Rob Mustoe, Managing Director of McCann Birmingham, said “We have worked with the leadership team at Job.com for a number of years, so when we were asked to help with the brand and the platform, we jumped at the chance. Job.com is a disruptive idea built on cutting edge technology and this is a really exciting project and is drawing a lot of attention within the agency. It has the potential to genuinely move the market and redefine what the industry is really about. The business has the right leadership, strategic partnerships, and frankly, the right brand.”

McCann is supporting Job.com with a variety of services at both a Strategic and Creative level, including; the development of the Job.com brand, creation of B2B & B2C advertising campaigns, production of necessary advertising collateral and customer relationship management. Their digital team will support by working on the Job.com platform, by providing User Experience, Web Design, and Front End Build.

Dean Lovett, CEO of McCann Birmingham, said “We work with a real cross-section of clients across all sectors and of all shapes and sizes. A lot of startups talk about doing things better. Job.com feels like one of the rare ones that have a proposition to deliver better things. We have a track record of taking startups to significant growth and becoming industry leaders – we think that Job.com has the potential to be the next story like this.”

Paul Sloyan of Job.com said “McCann’s reputation and legacy are second to none in the advertising space. We knew we wanted to work with them from the start and the fact that we will be their first blockchain-based client makes it all the more special. In a space where trust, branding, and legitimacy are of the utmost importance to our community, there is no better partner to portray Job.com’s message effectively than McCann. The recruitment revolution we are building is no simple feat, but as long as we maintain this level of dedication towards our goal and continue to partner with those that stand as pillars of their industries, there is little that can get in the way of our recruitment revolution.”

Job.com is an industry-leading job search platform with over 60 million users worldwide. Utilizing blockchain technology, Job.com allows companies and job seekers to connect directly, removing recruiters from the hiring process and redistributing those fees to successful candidates as a 5% signing bonus.

Agorai to Democratize AI with the Launch of Integrated Marketplaces

Agorai to democratize AI with the launch of Integrated Marketplaces

Agorai Delivers Unprecedented Access to Data Assets, Making AI Accessible for All

New York, NY, April 13, 2018 – Agorai, the only integrated marketplaces for Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools and the data assets that fuel them, today announced the Agorai Marketplaces. Designed to remove market inefficiencies, reward data creators and drive measurable value, Agorai brings together data owners and AI companies to create AI-driven solutions that solve real business problems. Comprised of two distinct marketplaces, the AI Marketplace and the Data Marketplace, the Agorai platform is being built on blockchain technology and will allow users to retain ownership of their own AI tools and data assets, while enabling others to access them at scale, across the globe.

“While it may seem that we are constantly hearing about new AI advancements, the reality is that AI is today controlled by no more than five companies,” says Josh Sutton, CEO Agorai. “The underlying problem is that AI needs data to fuel its development. And if you aren’t Google, Microsoft or IBM for example, you are unlikely to have access to, or be able to afford to buy, the data you need to develop your idea and take it to market. Not only is this uncompetitive, but it deprives the world of some potentially ground-breaking advancements. We are working to make AI more accessible for all, with the added bonus that these Marketplaces will drive significant improvements in automation and efficiencies across industries.”

Agorai is creating a user-friendly one-stop shop, via which AI companies can cost effectively access the massive data assets they need to create world class AI tools. At the same time, it is delivering a previously unavailable path for them to take these tools to market. Built on blockchain technology, every transaction that takes place on the Agorai Marketplaces will be fully transparent, completely distributed and securely validated.

The Agorai AI Marketplace enables people building AI tools and applications to access and share assets otherwise unavailable to them and provides a distribution channel for AI companies to put AI in the hands of those who need it. Agorai’s Data Marketplace keeps data ownership in the hands of those who create it and has developed a way for data owners, individuals or companies, to securely monetize their data assets. The Agorai Marketplaces match data owners with companies developing AI tools, so they can create more intelligent AI. For advertisers, for example, this means access to data-at-scale, delivering a much more accurate view of the customer. It also provides access to AI tools that deliver the next generation of advertising targeting.

The Agorai Marketplaces are currently being piloted and are scheduled for launch in late-2018. To participate in the pilot or for more information visit www.agorai.ai.

BitPay closes extended $40 million Series B Round

BitPay closes extended $40 million Series B Round

Led by new investors Menlo Ventures, G Squared and Capital Nine

ATLANTA, April 3, 2018 – BitPay, the largest global blockchain payments provider, today closes its $40 Million extended Series B funding round, which brings its total raised capital to over $70 Million.  New investors in BitPay include Menlo Ventures, Capital Nine, G Squared, Nimble Ventures (an affiliate of Passport Capital) and Delta-v Capital as well as individual investments from Christopher Klauss Family Office, Founder of Internet Security Systems (ISS), and Alvin Liu, Co-founder of Tencent.  Aquiline Capital Partners led the initial Series B Round but extended the round due to increased investor demand.

“BitPay had a record 2017 as we processed over $1 Billion in bitcoin payments.  We brought on these new investors who can help BitPay scale globally to meet customer demand,” said Stephen Pair, BitPay CEO.  “Our goals include key hires in engineering and regulatory licensing, as well as expansion into emerging markets in Asia–one of BitPay’s fastest-growing regions for transactions and wallet adoption.”

Menlo Ventures selected BitPay as its first institutional crypto investment after spending significant time researching the broader crypto and blockchain ecosystem. Menlo is committed to thesis-based investing, and prioritizes companies that are reshaping large and important markets through technology- and process-driven breakthroughs. Poised to profoundly change a rapidly evolving industry, BitPay joins the Menlo portfolio alongside leading companies such as Uber, Betterment, Roku, BlueVine, and Warby Parker.

“We gravitated towards BitPay because we felt the company had identified a killer use for crypto in facilitating low cost payment solutions for cross-border commerce and B2B payments, which is a massive market poorly served by the existing payment rails,” said Tyler Sosin, a partner at Menlo Ventures. “We are impressed with the company’s execution—it has demonstrated extremely efficient growth and a stickiness with merchants and consumers that is the hallmark of many great payment service providers. As the market leading crypto-processor, BitPay is well positioned to both benefit from and serve the fast moving crypto-ecosystem.”

Asia is a growing region for BitPay and as a result a significant portion of the Series B investors are from this region. Capital Nine is an Asian fintech corporation and investor with millions of customers across Asia.  Other investors from Asia include Alvin Liu, Co-Founder of Tencent, and Yong An Financial Holdings Co., Ltd

“Bitcoin’s popularity is spreading rapidly throughout Asia and BitPay has an opportunity to extend its technology solutions across Asia,” said Sam Lin, Director of Capital Nine.  ”BitPay’s cross-border payment solution helps businesses pay or receive international payments faster and more economically.”

Renowned security expert and technology entrepreneur Christopher Klaus founded Internet Security Systems (ISS), turning it into one the first large Internet security companies selling to IBM for $1.3 Billion in 2006.

“Security is extremely important to the blockchain network and BitPay,” said Christopher Klaus. “I have been watching the cryptocurrency space and believe BitPay is able to disrupt the financial services worldwide through payment processing and cross-border payments  in large part because of the security built into blockchain.”

Hundreds of thousands of businesses around the world have signed up with BitPay to accept bitcoin payments, including popular brands like Microsoft, Newegg, Namecheap, Gyft, Takeaway, and Virgin Galactic. BitPay works with over 30 e-commerce and point of sale integrators to promote the use and acceptance of bitcoin. The BitPay Wallet consumer adoption is growing with a monthly average of  more than $3 billion in transactions. In 2017, BitPay achieved record growth increasing revenues by nearly 700% and is profitable.

In 2014, BitPay raised a $30 million Series A round from investors including Index Ventures, Founders Fund, Felicis Ventures, RRE Ventures and Sir Richard Branson.

Bitfract’s New Platform Could Change Crypto Investing Forever

Bitfract’s new platform could change crypto investing forever

Bitfract, powered by ShapeShift, launches the first tool to exchange one crypto for multiple at once.

April 2018 (Austin, Texas): Meet Bitfract, the easiest way to design and invest in a diversified portfolio of cryptocurrencies.

Launching April 1st, Bitfract Beta enables investors to trade either Bitcoin, Ethereum, or Litecoin for up to 62 different coins in a single transaction. Up until now, the process to construct a diversified portfolio required traders to sign up for multiple exchanges for specific coins, manually calculate allocations, and then execute transactions individually. This time-consuming process is complex, error-prone, and expensive. Bitfract streamlines this entire process into a few clicks, effectively saving both time and up to 80% in fees.

From their homepage, Bitfract allows you to select an input coin and a set of output coins. You then specify the percent you would like to allocate to each output coin, along with a destination address to receive the coins. Since Bitfract only requires your public addresses (and never touches your private keys) you are empowered to manage your own assets without trusting centralized exchanges. Bitfract is a decentralized exchange platform, and you can expect to find your new assets in your private wallets within minutes.

“Everyone should have the ability to manage and maintain their own portfolio of digital assets, and our mission is to make this significantly more attainable. We hope you enjoy using Bitfract as much as we do, and we can’t wait to show you what’s next.”- Willy Ogorzaly, Co-founder and CEO.

Bitfract is a proud partner of ShapeShift, the earth’s fastest and safest exchange. Reserve beta access at https://bitfract.com.

CoinGeek.com funds the Cash Shuffle Group’s Bitcoin Cash (BCH) ‘Mixer’ Tool

CoinGeek.com funds the Cash Shuffle Group’s Bitcoin Cash (BCH) ‘Mixer’ Tool

CoinGeek.com continues to invest in developing BCH into the one true Blockchain with recent funding for: a terabyte block*, a tokenization mechanism (with a £5,000,000 prize for anybody who can achieve this) and now with the Cash Shuffle Group to add the ability to mix or shuffle coins on the Blockchain through multiple transactions to improve anonymity.

There’s nothing clandestine about anonymous payments, normal cash is the same and, of course, the two parties involved will be fully aware. But, to create a viable peer-to-peer, low-fee digital currency the ability for users to keep their transactions between each other is something that has been enjoyed since the birth of currency.

The Mixer tool is for BCH only and will be open source once seed is built. These improvements to the chain help tie BCH even more firmly to the original Satoshi White Paper and thus is not only the best Blockchain but also the only true Bitcoin.

Calvin Ayre, owner of CoinGeek.com, explains: “The Legacy Segwit Coin (BTC) should no longer call itself Bitcoin as there is no resemblance to the coin launched in 2008. BCH is now making sure it is true to the original vision and is adding other useful elements as the cryptocurrency world evolves. I am willing to listen any sensible arguments as to why this is not the case but can find none to refute the claim that BCH is the real Bitcoin.”

Alongside everything we are doing CoinGeek is also educating merchants about the benefits of adopting Bitcoin Cash as a lower-fee, fast-payment system. These educational efforts will really hit a peak at our CoinGeek Conference in Hong Kong this May 18th.

*A single terabyte block (added every 10 minutes) can contain about 4 billion Bitcoin transactions, and provide capacity of 7 million transactions per second.
