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.

Jan 23, 2018

TOKYO — Twelve people, including eight soldiers, skiing on the slopes of a volcano near a famous hot spring resort in central Japan were injured Tuesday by flying rocks during a sudden eruption, officials said. One soldier later died. The eruption quickly darkened the ski slope at Mount Kusatsu-Shirane with black ash, as volcanic rocks rained down on gondolas and people skiing down the slopes, sending them desperately seeking shelter at a mountaintop station. The eight soldiers were in a group of 30 who were undergoing ski training and were close to the mountain's peak when they were hit by...

US says Turk offensive in Syria is disruptive

Jan 23, 2018

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Turkey's air and ground offensive against Kurds in northwestern Syria has distracted from international efforts to finish off the Islamic State group and has disrupted humanitarian relief work, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Tuesday. Mattis raised the matter in an exchange with reporters after unrelated meetings in the Indonesia capital with senior government officials. He made clear that while the U.S. sympathizes with Turkey's concerns about border security, Washington wants the Turks to minimize their military action inside Syria. The Turkish offensive began Saturday, targeting Kurds in an enclave called Afrin. Turkey says it intends to...

At least three major blasts followed Tuesday, including an explosion at nightfall that was capped by one of the most massive lava displays since the volcano started acting up more than a week ago, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology...

Japan central bank keeps lax monetary policy unchanged

Jan 23, 2018

TOKYO — The Bank of Japan opted Tuesday to keep intact its unprecedented monetary stimulus despite an uptick in growth, sticking with its massive asset purchases and a negative interest rate policy aimed at spurring inflation. The U.S. Federal Reserve and European Central Bank, among other central banks, have begun tightening stimulus unleashed to counter the fallout from the global financial crisis. The BOJ appears to have recently reduced its purchases of government bonds. However Gov. Haruhiko Kuroda has said he would maintain Japan's barrage of deflation-fighting stimulus until a 2 percent inflation target is met. The aim is to...

JAKARTA, Indonesia — U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says the Trump administration wants to help Indonesia play a central role in maritime security in the Asia-Pacific region. Mattis spoke briefly to reporters Tuesday after meeting with his Indonesian counterpart. His visit to Jakarta reflects one of the key tenets of the broad national security strategy that he publicly unveiled last Friday in Washington — building partnerships and strengthening alliances. Mattis told reporters Tuesday that the U.S. wants to help Indonesia realize its ambition to become a "maritime fulcrum" in the region. He says that, on that basis, the U.S. wants...
