XRP Price Falls Amid Sell-off Involving 100 Million XRP Tokens While...

Ever since the beginning of the year, XRP price has been having difficulty moving higher against the USD. It’s been a cause for concern for members of the XRP rich list and the XRP Army. This is because XRP news has been mostly positive over the last few months but this doesn’t seem to have any lasting effect on the price. When the price of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies were rising against the USD, the price of XRP was stuck in a descending trendline. It has been unable to retest the $0.38 resistance it initially tested and is struggling to stay above the $0.32 support level. Our XRP price prediction 2019 stated that the price of XRP will most likely fall by another 50% before rising higher against the USD. Now, the 100 million XRP token sell-off seems to have contributed to the negative XRP predictions.

Cryptocurrency Exchange ‘IEO’ Draws Suspicion for Plans to Sell Tokens Ahead...

Bgogo intends to offer what are essentially IOUs on tokens from Algorand, a project only slated to launch in June. Digital currency and transaction platform Algorand has refused to endorse an attempt by cryptocurrency exchange Bgogo to sell its unreleased tokens, executives confirmed on social media on April 8. Algorand, which intends to launch its product in June along with its native ERC-20 token, issued a formal warning about the plans, which Bgogo has since confirmed are genuine in a blog post. Known as an “initial exchange offering” (IEO), the Algorand event notionally allows Bgogo traders to purchase exposure to the platform’s token, despite the fact that it does not yet exist. Bgogo will set an arbitrary price for the tokens, essentially trading an IOU ahead of the official release. According to Algorand, however, the exchange has not entered into any form of official agreement with the company, and its efforts are not condoned. “To be clear: The (Algorand) Network has not yet ..

US SEC Releases No-Action Letter Confirming TurnKey Jet ICO Tokens Are...

The U.S. SEC has issued a no-action letter to TurnKey Jet, confirming that the TKJ tokens issued during the startup’s ICO are not securities. On April 3, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has issued a no-action letter to TurnKey Jet, confirming that the TKJ tokens issued during the startup’s initial coin offering (ICO) are not securities. In the letter, the regulator specifies that it considered that the platform will be fully developed and operational at the time the tokens are sold, and the funds won’t be used to develop the platform. It also mentions that the tokens will be immediately usable and have been marketed for their utility, not potential profits. Other reasons cited are that the price of the tokens during the sale will be fixed at one dollar, each token will be granting one dollar worth of service and that the company will only purchase them at a discount unless a court orders it to liquidate them. The SEC also notes that since TKJ transfers will ..

Pet Stablecoins: Why Some Banks Issue Their Own Digital Tokens, While...

A number of banks revealed plans to issue their own tokens, following JPMorgan Chase’s move. This week, a number of banks shed light on their respective crypto-related projects, following the recent expansion of JPMorgan Chase into the field. IBM was the big mover. A joint announcement by IBM and Stellar (XMR) said that as many as six global banks might issue their own stablecoins on IBM’s blockchain-powered payments network, dubbed “Blockchain World Wire” (BWW). The question now is whether this marks a turning point for cryptocurrency’s use, or if it merely continues the experiments that have marked the early stages of digital money. While quite a few financial institutions seem ready to go blockchain and create tokens in a bid to streamline cross-border payments, some still choose to set the technology aside. Citigroup, the corporation behind one of the world’s top-20 banks by asset value, revealed earlier this week that it was abandoning its “Citicoin” project to focus on more c..

Rhode Island Bill Would Exclude Some Tokens From Securities Laws

A bill introduced in the Rhode Island State Assembly would allow some “blockchain tokens” to avoid state securities laws. A bill in the state legislature of the United States state of Rhode Island would exclude “blockchain tokens” from state securities laws. The bill was introduced in the legislature on Feb. 27. The bipartisan bill H5595 proposes a series of amendments to the Rhode Island Securities Act, under which “a developer or seller of an open blockchain token shall not be deemed the issuer of a security,” should certain conditions be met. The token must be used for a “consumptive purpose” that is exclusively exchangeable for “the receipt of, goods, services or content, including rights of access to goods, services or content.” Tokens cannot be marketed as an investment, and if they are not usable for a “consumptive purpose” when sold, buyers must be prevented from reselling them. H5595 also excludes entities that facilitate the exchange of a token from broker-dealer status shou..
