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.

Soto, Hicks HRs give Nats, Yanks unusual doubleheader split

Jun 19, 2018

WASHINGTON — It was a long and odd day, one that started with teenager Juan Soto homering in a game that officially was played before he made his major league debut. Huh? Soto delivered a tiebreaking, pinch-hit, two-run shot in the sixth inning of a game that began and was suspended because of rain last month, five days before he was called up from the minors for the first time, to lift the Washington Nationals to a 5-3 victory over the New York Yankees in the opener of an unusual semi-doubleheader Monday. "Geez, he has a bright future. How old...

Dyson's catch, Goldschmidt's HR lead Arizona past Halos, 7-4

Jun 19, 2018

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Neither Jarrod Dyson nor Justin Upton could tell whether Upton's bases-loaded line drive to the deepest part of center field would have made it out of Angel Stadium. Dyson made sure nobody will ever know with a leaping, lunging catch that might have saved a win for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Paul Goldschmidt hit an early two-run homer and Zack Greinke pitched into the seventh inning of the Diamondbacks' 12th victory in 16 games in June, 7-4 over the struggling Los Angeles Angels on Monday night. Dyson had an early RBI single, and he prevented at least a...

Ozuna misses Altherr's 2-run 2B in 10th, Phils top Cards 6-5

Jun 19, 2018

PHILADELPHIA — Aaron Altherr got his first lucky break in a while. Left fielder Marcell Ozuna dived for and missed Altherr's two-run double with two outs in the 10th inning, allowing the Philadelphia Phillies to rally for a 6-5 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night. Altherr had been hitless in his last 12 at-bats and 1 for 20 before the hit. "The way things have been going, I thought he was going to catch it," Altherr said. "Thankfully he dove for it and it got by." Tommy Pham hit a solo homer in the top of the...

The Fastball Paradox: With velocity up, fastballs on decline

Jun 19, 2018

NEW YORK — Over five seasons as ace of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Gerrit Cole threw one of the game's hardest, heaviest fastballs, and he threw it often. The pitch helped him make millions of dollars. It put him in contention for major awards. Hitters swung through it again and again, and Cole seemed content not to mess with a good thing. But when Cole was traded to the Houston Astros this offseason, a funny thing happened. He became more frugal with his fastball and ended up more overpowering than ever. Cole has joined some of the game's best pitchers —...

Nimmo, Mets finally support deGrom in 12-2 win over Rockies

Jun 19, 2018

DENVER — Brandon Nimmo began the game with an inside-the-park home run. Turned out he was just getting started. Nimmo homered twice during a huge night at the plate, and the New York Mets finally gave Jacob deGrom some run support Monday in a 12-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies. "It took a funny bounce (off the wall), so something was working my way for that first at-bat," Nimmo said. "That was pretty cool and a great way to start it off. Just kind of loosened things up after that." Wilmer Flores and Devin Mesoraco also went deep for New...
