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.

Ronaldo keeps his focus, Juventus struggling to do the same

Oct 22, 2018

MILAN — Despite his off-the-field turmoil, Cristiano Ronaldo is still scoring goals. His teammates, however, let Juventus down. Ronaldo has scored five goals in nine matches, and two in three matches since being accused of rape last month. On Saturday, Ronaldo gave Juventus the lead in the 18th minute at Genoa. Then something odd happened. Normally so calm and collected, the Juventus players were at times haphazard in their passing and Daniel Bessa equalized in the 67th minute as the defense was caught napping. "They capitalized on our loss of concentration," Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. "After starting well, we...

The Belgian midfielder will undergo tests on Monday but is now a doubt for Wednesday's Champions League match at Barcelona.

Cristiano Ronaldo expected to play for Juventus on Saturday

Oct 22, 2018

MILAN — Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Juventus started with a selfie, included a goal in a practice game, and will likely end up with a starring role on Saturday. Ronaldo, who has been accused of rape and is facing a civil lawsuit in the United States, had the weekend off while his Italian team was idle during a break for international matches. Normally the star of his national team, the 33-year-old Ronaldo was left off Portugal's squad for games against Poland and Scotland. The team won both anyway. But he's back now, and is expected to be in the lineup...
