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.

Top batsman, but Kohli the captain struggles to inspire

Jan 18, 2018

CENTURION, South Africa — Almost every time something hasn't gone India's way in South Africa, Virat Kohli has erupted in frustration. Whether it's throwing his arms in the air and shrieking at a misfield or a missed catch by one of his teammates. Or tossing his bat to the ground when a batting partner gets out. Or directing his disgruntlement at an umpire, an argument that cost the India captain a disciplinary charge and a fine in this week's second test. Dissatisfied, Kohli took his complaints to a higher authority, remonstrating animatedly in the match referee's office, too. Such antics...

India collapses to 151 to lose series in South Africa

Jan 18, 2018

CENTURION, South Africa — After nine straight series wins, eight of them in the comfort of sub-continent conditions, India again fell short on tour to lose the second test to South Africa by 135 runs on Wednesday. With it, went another series away from home. India, so often a batting juggernaut at home, was bowled out for 151 before lunch on the final day at Centurion in a defeat made more painful by the fact that the pitch at SuperSport Park on the South African highveld was surprisingly more Indian than South African in character. Even then, on a slow,...

India crashes to 35-3, facing series defeat in South Africa

Jan 18, 2018

CENTURION, South Africa — India crashed to 35-3 in the second test against South Africa on Tuesday, leaving the world's top-ranked team heading for a first series defeat since 2015. South Africa quick bowlers Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi blasted through India's top order at the end of Day 4, a burst that crucially included the wicket of captain Virat Kohli, to leave India still 252 runs short of its victory target. India was facing a record run chase at Centurion, or the prospect of surviving for an entire day without its best player, to stay alive in the three-test...

India needs 287 to win 2nd test in SAfrica and level series

Jan 18, 2018

CENTURION, South Africa — India was left on Tuesday with a tough target of 287 to win the second test against South Africa and level the series between the top two teams in the world. South Africa was 258 all out in its second innings in the afternoon on Day 4, with captain Faf du Plessis finally falling for 48 off 141 balls. Du Plessis reverted to an attritional approach after seeing his team lose three quick wickets in the morning session. He featured in a partnership of 46 with Vernon Philander that edged South Africa toward a match-winning position,...

Kohli fined for complaining to umpire, throwing ball

Jan 18, 2018

CENTURION, South Africa — India captain Virat Kohli was fined for complaining to an umpire and throwing the ball into the ground "in an aggressive manner" during a dispute over the playing conditions in the second cricket test in South Africa on Monday. The International Cricket Council said in a statement Tuesday that Kohli argued with umpire Michael Gough after play resumed following a rain delay on Day 3 at SuperSport Park in Centurion. India was fielding and Kohli was unhappy that play resumed so soon after the rain, leaving India's players struggling on a damp outfield and with a...
