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.

England ends losing run by beating Boks in series defeat

Jun 24, 2018

CAPE TOWN, South Africa — Captain Owen Farrell's six penalties and another Jonny May try earned England a much-needed consolation victory from its tour of South Africa as the visitors won 25-10 at Newlands on Saturday. While England's performance was anything but polished, it made the most of South Africa's ill-discipline as the host conceded 14 penalties to six and made 13 handling errors. Farrell punished the hosts as he kicked through five of his first six goal attempts to earn a 15-10 lead going into the final quarter, before May's try killed off England's five-test losing streak with a...

Central African Republic minister says Becker passport fake

Jun 24, 2018

BANGUI, Central African Republic — Central African Republic's foreign minister says a reported diplomatic passport for Boris Becker appears to be a fake and the prosecutor general will investigate. The retired German tennis star claims that his role as Central African Republic's attache to the European Union on sporting, cultural and humanitarian affairs gives him diplomatic immunity from bankruptcy proceedings in Britain. But the African nation's foreign minister, Charles Armel Doubane, rejected the passport that is said to be Becker's in comments to Radio Ndeke-Luka. Presidential spokesman Albert Yaloké Mokpeme said the head of state had never appointed Becker to...

Springboks and England have much to play for in 3rd test

Jun 24, 2018

CAPE TOWN, South Africa — The scent of opportunity will swirl in the damp Newlands breeze on Saturday when South Africa and England step out for the third and final rugby test. With the host team having wrapped up the series 2-0, the collective objectives for an under-fire England are clear: End a five-test losing streak and win its first match in South Africa since 2000. But the real opportunities will exist on an individual level, and apply on both sides. Should England earn its first victory on South African soil in seven attempts, the result will surely have some...

England start Cipriani, Springboks change 4 for sweep bid

Jun 24, 2018

CAPE TOWN, South Africa — Flyhalf Danny Cipriani will attempt to spark some life into an ailing England after earning his first test start since 2008 for the third and final test against South Africa at Newlands on Saturday. George Ford has been Eddie Jones' preferred flyhalf, but with the series already lost the England coach threw a lifeline to Cipriani, who made a bright 13-minute appearance off the bench in last week's 23-12 defeat in Bloemfontein. That was his 15th cap, and first in three years. "He sees space. Opportunities are going to be limited at the weekend and...

South African who lost his legs fulfills football dream

Jun 24, 2018

WINDERVELDT, South Africa — Tebogo Mofokeng's legs were amputated when he was a toddler in South Africa, but that didn't stop him from fulfilling his dream of coaching young football players. Mofokeng, 18, is following the World Cup closely, but on Sunday morning he was on a dusty field in Winderveldt, a poor area northwest of the capital, Pretoria. On his prosthetics, he shouted instructions as boys trained in ball control. The coach suffered severe burns when he was just a year old, and his legs had to be amputated. He got his first prosthetic legs when he was 3....
