Digital Asset TDN Used to Acquire $25m of Graphite

Published

on

Fundraising

SovTech technology firm TODAQ, the creators of the cryptographic digital asset TDN, have reached an agreement with Gratomic Inc for the purchase of US$25m of graphite. This is the first deal of its kind, with the graphite to sit in the TDN reserve backstop to further underpin the true value of deployed TDN; a key strategy behind the evolution of the TDN rewards program, as well as allowing cryptographic ownership of commodities as it is processed and traded.

Following the recent announcement of TDN’s pending commercial loyalty program rollouts and BitForex listing, this first commodity buy with TDN represents a landmark achievement for the group behind it. TODAQ have set out to build a digital asset of true value and interoperability so that all businesses, people and markets can exercise strong ownership and transact quickly with security and long-term stability, with the asset reserve backstop becoming a pillar of this strategy.

Gratomic Inc is a pioneer in the mining and commercialization of graphite products, including the super-strength nano material graphene that is used extensively in the digital economy for its conductive abilities in circuit boards, along with a wide range of mass-market applications, such as with elastomer and polymer products, including the $222 billion tire market.

Speaking on the TDN for graphite deal, Gratomic Executive Chairman Sheldon Inwentash commented, “Building our long-term treasury and creating secure digital ownership of commodities that can carry an immutable history of its quality, amount, handling, testing and custody, and which can move without friction through manufacturing chains or on trading platforms is where we need to be. As we move to production, this acquisition program creates the foundation to start that focused work.”

TODAQ CEO Hassan Khan added: “This is the first of many deals we are lining up to give the backstop a mixture of assets and commodities that reflect the real world, that reflect real value that can be understood by existing markets. Too often, digital assets rely on sentiment for their perceived value; we intend for TDN to have both substance and utility.”

TODAQ is working on several other TDN deals, including raw materials, metal commodities and commercial deployments of TDN into consumer markets.

“Diversifying the backstop to underpin TDN’s real use in the wider economy is core to our strategy. The fact that we have such a variety of asset negotiations in play gives us great confidence that what we set out to achieve is coming true; a digital asset that allows for direct ownership and control of any commodity or asset, be it physical or digital,” added Khan.

ALYI Prepares to Host Prospective $100 Million Underwriter

Published

on

Corda Network

Alternet Systems, Inc. (USOTC: ALYI) today announce that the prospective underwriter that has previously expressed interest in the Company’s initiative to raise $100 million in conjunction with a cryptocurrency offering has asked to schedule a feasibility study reviewing ALYI’s overall electric mobility project in Africa that would be funded by the cryptocurrency offering. ALYI is preparing to host the prospective underwriter in Kenya where ALYI’s initiative is currently centered as early as within the next month.

ALYI is executing on a project in Africa to produce electric motorcycles for the shared ride market in Africa. The electric motorcycle project is a first step of a planned long-term electric mobility research and development and production cycle. A target $100 million initial coin offering (ICO) is intended to accelerate an existing $300 million in electric vehicle projects.

ALYI African Crypto Strategy Highlights

The firm, IW Global (www.IW-Global.com) has proposed launching and managing an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) on ALYI’s behalf specifically targeted at raising $100 million to fund infrastructure for electric vehicle production in Africa. ALYI has partnered with IW Global and ALYI’s production and marketing partners in Kenya to form a new company (NewCo) with the specific focus of building a new, state of the art electric vehicle production plant. This NewCo will be a separate company apart from ALYI but exclusively contracted by ALYI for producing ALYI designed vehicles. The NewCo is the business entity that would initiate the proposed ICO. The funds would be dedicated to 1. Building the plant and 2. Funding the production of ALYI’s vehicles. A successful ICO would permit ALYI to substantially accelerate and expand upon its existing $300 million in electric vehicle projects.

ALYI Institutional Commitment

ALYI recently announced securing institutional commitment to support an annual African electric mobility technology conference and symposium to advance the deployment of electric powered transportation solutions specific to Africa. The focus includes environmental sustainability but also overall transportation efficiency applicable to the African transportation infrastructure, economy, and consumer. ALYI CEO, Dr. Randell Torno, contends that the immediate opportunity for electric powered transportation growth in Africa by far exceeds the electric powered transportation opportunity anywhere else in the world and that the electric mobility technology innovations that will be developed for Africa will ultimately form the foundation of commercial electric powered transportation everywhere. In short, Africa is the global proving ground for electric powered transportation. In December, Dr. Torno concluded meetings in London where he secured institutional brand name commitment that will serve as the anchor event and attraction at the annual African electric mobility technology conference and symposium. The planed conference and symposium location is Nairobi, Kenya.

Ideanomics’ MEG Sales Subsidiary Receives Investment from Qingdao City at 2 Billion RMB valuation

Published

on

Bitcoin SV

Ideanomics, (NASDAQ: IDEX) (“Ideanomics” or the “Company”), has today announced that its MEG Group subsidiary Qingdao Mobile New Energy Vehicle Sales Co. Ltd. has received an initial investment of ¥50 Million RMB (approx. $7.2M US) from Qingdao Xingyang City Investment Co., Ltd. as part of a series of investments valuing the subsidiary at ¥2 Billion RMB (approx. $288M US).

The follow-on investments will come as the newly formed MEG-owned sales group realizes sales targets of ¥10 Billion RMB per additional investment tranche of 50 Million RMB, with the full ¥200 Million RMB investment for a 10% stake in Qingdao Mobile New Energy Vehicle Sales Co. Ltd. achieved when gross sales reach ¥30 Billion RMB (approximately $4B US). Ideanomics had previously announced its plans to headquarter its MEG subsidiary in Qingdao, creating a commercial EV hub to showcase the depth of its manufacturing partner alliance to both governmental and enterprise fleet operators.

“The investment comes at an important time, with our MEG division ramping up operations. The investment from Qingdao’s investment fund is a recognition of our impact on the commercial EV ecosystem in China,” said Alf Poor, CEO of Ideanomics. “We have already taken in the initial investment, and the sales targets for the full investment will require MEG to sell around one hundred thousand units in total EV sales across our 4 segments of Logistical Vehicles, Taxis, City and Tour Buses, and Heavy Trucks. As the logistical vehicle market in China alone is some 14 million vehicles, it provides us with the size and scale to achieve those sales’ targets with a relatively minor share of the total commercial EV market. We’re thrilled to be basing our sales group in Qingdao and having the city participate as a stakeholder in our sales organization”.

Huobi Group

Huobi Group today announced the launch of Huobi Brokerage, a digital asset brokerage platform, during the annual Davos forum. As the global blockchain company’s first brokerage solution, Huobi Brokerage will provide digital asset trading products and services to institutional clients and high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs).

Last November, Huobi established its Global Institutional Business (GIB), a new team and a business line of products and services targeted toward institutional clients. Huobi Brokerage is the first product to be launched under the newly formed GIB division and the latest addition to a growing suite of industry-leading blockchain and crypto products within the Huobi Group portfolio.

“There’s an industry-wide consensus that institutional investors and HNWIs will be the major contributors of growth for the crypto economy in 2020 and beyond, but barriers like low liquidity and a lack of asset enhancement products are stalling widespread adoption,” said Ciara Sun, Vice President of Global Business at Huobi Group. “By introducing institutional-grade products and liquidity solutions that cater to the needs of institutions and eliminate existing barriers, we’re aiming to help drive the entire crypto economy forward.”

Huobi Brokerage leverages advanced trading algorithms and smart order routing (SOR) to provide institutional clients with access to high-quality liquidity pools, competitive prices, a regulated fiat channel, and an all-in-one solution for OTC trading. Through the platform, clients can access real-time trade quotes and instant price locks, as well as support for high-volume block trades across major cryptocurrencies and stablecoins such as BTC, USDT, HUSD, PAX, TUSD, and USDC. Support for ETH, EOS, BCH, LTC, and XRP is expected in Q1 2020.

Liquidity solutions available via Huobi Brokerage include over-the-counter liquidity, exchange liquidity aggregation, and customized financing and lending facilities. Other services in the product pipeline include interest rate products, alpha products, and custodian services, which will begin rolling out in Q2 2020.

Speaking about the evolution of the financial markets at Davos, Sun added, “2019 brought the first wave of institutional interest but 2020 is when we expect to see the industry mature with growing demand. As we enter the next phase of crypto, Huobi is taking an active role in setting new standards for institutional and retail clients alike.”

Since the establishment of the GIB division in Q3 2019, Huobi’s institutional business has grown 400% to 1,700 institutional clients onboarded. GIB currently has offices in LondonSingapore, and Hong Kong and will be a top priority for Huobi in 2020 as it continues to expand globally.

TaxBit Raises $5 Million In Funding to Automate Cryptocurrency Tax Compliance

Published

on

TaxBit

TaxBit, which offers cryptocurrency tax automation software targeted for crypto users, exchanges, and merchants, is announcing today a seed round of $5 million, with some of the industries’ biggest names participating. Investors include Fintech venture firm, TTV Capital, Dragonfly Capital Partners, Collaborative Fund, Winklevoss Capital, Valar Ventures, Global Founders Capital, Table Management, Album VC, who previously led TaxBit’s pre-seed round, and more. This funding is representative of the shift in how Americans are beginning to look at cryptocurrency in regard to taxes and government regulations.

The IRS has been vocal as to properly reporting cryptocurrency taxes. This past summer, the IRS sent out tens of thousands of audit notices to US cryptocurrency traders, followed by releasing new cryptocurrency tax guidance in the fall. To top it all off, the IRS included a new question on its 2019 tax return form which requires all US taxpayers to attest whether they acquired, sold, or exchanged cryptocurrency at any point during the taxable year.

TaxBit, founded by CPAs, tax attorneys, and software developers, has a mission to enable widespread cryptocurrency adoption by automating the regulatory hurdle of tax compliance. Austin Woodward, CEO and Founder of TaxBit (as well as CPA) says, “In such a highly regulated space with so many complexities, TaxBit is needed to remove the burden of proper cryptocurrency tax reporting from the shoulders of crypto users, exchanges, and merchants.” He continues, “TaxBit’s software and tax experts will accurately handle all of the back-end complexities, while providing users with an intuitive, user-friendly experience on the front-end.”

Salt Lake City-based TaxBit launched its consumer product in January 2019 and has since helped thousands of cryptocurrency users automate their taxes. The company’s consumer product is often referred to as the “TurboTax of crypto”, as users can easily use TaxBit’s do-it-yourself platform to produce all of their required crypto tax forms in minutes.

Winklevoss Capital Partner, Sterling Witzke, also agrees that, “Navigating cryptocurrency tax laws is a byzantine process. TaxBit’s technology eliminates this confusion and complexity by allowing crypto owners to seamlessly understand the full picture of their tax liability through an intuitive and easy-to-use platform. Solving for this pain point is integral to accelerating cryptocurrency adoption, and we are thrilled to back TaxBit on this mission.”

In 2019, TaxBit also launched its enterprise tax center suite that is now being deployed by cryptocurrency exchanges and merchants. Similar to the tax centers provided by equity trading platforms, TaxBit’s tax center suite facilitates tax compliance for enterprises and their users through a technology driven platform.

TaxBit plans to use the funds raised to further enhance its products and accelerate customer growth, both in the United States and internationally in regions including Canada, UK, and Australia. “For cryptocurrency to proliferate further, an ecosystem of compliance tools must be created,” says Sean Banks, Partner at TTV Capital. “We are very impressed with the TaxBit team and the platform they are building. This technology is fundamental to the adoption of cryptocurrency, as it enables the industry to progress while being compliant with tax regulations worldwide.”

Filing taxes is an intimidating process, as is. With the IRS’ new guidelines and requirements regarding cryptocurrency, it has become even more difficult. TaxBit strives to lessen the stress and simplify the process for merchants, individuals, and exchanges, alike. With a strong and qualified internal team, TaxBit is able to provide accounting software with immutable and secure tax data, at a time when it is most critical.

ABOUT TAXBIT
TaxBit was founded by CPAs, tax attorneys, and software developers in order to enable widespread cryptocurrency adoption by automating the regulatory hurdle of tax compliance. TaxBit’s software is used by thousands of everyday crypto users, in addition to crypto exchanges and merchants with regards to their 1099 and enterprise reporting requirements. TaxBit is located in Salt Lake City, UT. To learn more visit: www.taxbit.com

ArBinance Makes Arbitrage Trading Easier

Published

on

ArBinance

ArBinance is a cryptocurrency arbitrage platform. It allows traders to benefit from the difference in price value between cryptocurrency markets.

The platform, which deals with over 100 cryptocurrency exchanges, aims to make arbitrage trading easier for professional and novice traders alike. The trading platform uses its specially designed software that is both highly functional and easy to use for traders.

Seeing that arbitrage is not only about finding beneficial trades but making them promptly, ArBinance’s software is built with efficiency in mind. The platform’s application instantly identifies profitable trade opportunities and acts upon them just as swiftly. This process makes sure that individual traders could benefit from market events within seconds of their initiation.

ArBinance is Allowing Users to Take Fair Advantage of Arbitrage

Arbitrage trading refers to the practice of benefiting from the difference in price value between various markets. When traders spot this price difference, they buy the asset from the lower-cost market and sell it in a place where it is at a higher price.

This difference is simply a fraction of the total price of the asset. As such, buying and selling it in a single transaction does not bring in massive profits. But when this price difference is spotted, and essential purchases or sales are made a few times a day, it could bring in astounding results. That’s one of the many reasons why arbitrage trading is so prevalent in conventional markets.

As the cryptocurrency market grows with more and more exchanges, arbitrage trading has also started to gain significant traction within the sector. More exchanges mean more opportunities to spot pricing differences, which translates to higher profitability.

Traders must be their best at all times to determine the price difference between hundreds of exchanges. Since no one can keep up with an avalanche of trades, traders are not able to gain full advantage of arbitrage trading even if they want to do so.

That is where automated solutions such as ArBinance come in.

ArBinance Offers Targeted Arbitrage Solutions

To help traders make the most out of arbitrage trading, ArBiance has designed an intuitive interface. The application is easy to use and boasts of a few significant functions, such as the ability to perform automated arbitrage trading. Trades are possible even when users are away from their computer screens.

ArBinance works round the clock and lets its users take advantage of 24/7 arbitrage to make sure that they never miss out on potential gains. The automated platform has been designed to spot price differences in over 100 hundred cryptocurrency exchanges and make trades instantly. This way, traders can benefit from relevant opportunities without manual tracking of prices or execution of trades.

ArBinance provides its arbitrage solutions through its website, where interested traders could sign up to use its services. To learn more about ArBinance and its offered trading solutions, head to ArBinance.com today.
