Major Headlines


First 2019 Token Launch From CoinList


Last year the prominent startup funding platform AngelList made their own startup to mimic the platform with a focus on blockchain technology and cryptocurrency projects. CoinList is fully SEC compliant, and because of this, their ability to efficiently launch token sales has slowed. They have not launched a token since July of 2018, when Origin Protocol began a $6.6 million funding round. But they recently announced that Ocean Protocol has set out to raise $8 million through a token sale on the platform that will begin March 1st. Investment opportunities on CoinList are open to accredited U.S. investors and international buyers. “Some sales happened on our platform in the middle of last year, and then we found that effectively no high-quality potential clients wanted to run public sales at the end of 2018. What we’re seeing now is an array of great issuers looking to do sales in early 2019.” - CoinList co-founder and president Andy Bromberg


Brazilian Bank Offering Security Token


The investment bank Banco BTG Pactual of Brazil is looking to raise $15 million USD through a digital token sale. They also plan to establish a secondary market platform to provide adequate liquidity for the tokens. The market will give investors the opportunity to invest in Brazilian real estate or the secondary token ReitBZ (RBZ). Initial purchases will be made possible through their partnership with the Gemini Exchange via the Gemini Dollar stablecoin. “The technology associated with this offering allows us to be a pioneer in providing access to asset classes that have historically been difficult for global retail investors to access. We are constantly exploring innovative ways to promote, democratize and encourage the development of financial and capital markets.” - BTG Pactual CEO, Roberto Sallouti


Irish Auction House Hosting Cryptocurrency


A pool of roughly 105 bitcoin (BTC), 105 bitcoin cash (BCH) and 105 bitcoin gold (BTG) will be auction through Wilsons Auctions in Ireland. Their total value is currently between $420,000 and $440,000. This will be the one of several cryptocurrency auctions that have taken place at Wilsons. Just last month the company held an auction for 167.7 Monero (XMR) that had been seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act by a U.K. law enforcement agency. The auction resulted in the XMR being sold above market value after bids from 69 countries totalling over  700 bids.
