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.

CIA: China is waging a 'quiet kind of cold war' against US

Jul 21, 2018

ASPEN, Colo. — China is waging a "quiet kind of cold war" against the United States, using all its resources to try to replace America as the leading power in the world, a top CIA expert on Asia said Friday. Beijing doesn't want to go to war, he said, but the current communist government, under President Xi Jingping, is subtly working on multiple fronts to undermine the U.S. in ways that are different than the more well-publicized activities being employed by Russia. "I would argue ... that what they're waging against us is fundamentally a cold war — a cold...

A lifelong friendship fuels the chemistry of 'Blindspotting'

Jul 21, 2018

NEW YORK — Daveed Diggs was busy. Too busy. The actor was doing eight shows a week as Jefferson/ Lafayette in the Broadway sensation "Hamilton," and wasn't answering his emails. So there was only one thing his writing partner and creative soulmate, Rafael Casal, could do: Move across the country, and set up camp in Diggs' dressing room. "Every night, he'd just be there at intermission," Diggs laughs now. "He had to move to New York for us to maintain a level of creative output." With the opening this week of "Blindspotting," their Oakland, California-based, rap-infused feature film debut, the...

Hotrod team donates brains, urges same from military members

Jul 21, 2018

MORRISON, Colo. — Concussion experts would someday like to conduct the same amount of research on head injuries among military members as they've done for football players. One way to get there: racecar drivers. All seven members of the world's largest hotrod team, Don Schumacher Racing, pledged their brains to concussion research Friday as part of an effort geared to reach military members as much as racing fans. Through its sponsorship with the U.S. Army, Schumacher connected with the Infinite Hero Foundation , a nonprofit that works with the Concussion Legacy Foundation. CLF has received pledges of more than 3,500...

Jul 21, 2018

NORFOLK, Va. — Lincoln Brower, who was considered one of the foremost experts on the iconic monarch butterfly and a scientist who advocated for the declining species' protection, has died. He was 86. Linda Fink, his wife, confirmed Friday that Brower passed away Tuesday at home in Nelson County, Virginia, after a long illness.

Bear cub burned by Colorado wildfire healing, gaining weight

Jul 21, 2018

DENVER — An orphaned bear cub burned by a Colorado wildfire is healing and gaining weight. Wildlife officials said Friday that the bear no longer has to wear bandages on her feet, which were severely burned by flames north of Durango last month. The cub has more than doubled in size, to 26 pounds (12 kilograms), since firefighters spotted her. And she's left her cage to live in a pen with other cubs at a rehabilitation center. In a statement from Colorado Parks and Wildlife, veterinary technician Michael Sirochman said the bear began pulling off her bandages about two weeks...
