BCAP tokens, representing shares of Blockchain Capital III, is listed on the SharesPost regulated trading platform, according to a press release.

Note that the Blockchain Capital tokensale successfully took place back in April 2017. At their core, BCAP tokens are security tokens because they represent shares in an investment portfolio that includes large companies and crypto-industry projects.

Due to global legal uncertainty, BCAP tokens soon began to disappear from the listing of cryptocurrency exchanges, and then completely became illiquid. For a long time, these tokens could be bought or sold only on the decentralized EtherDelta Exchange. The BCAP market price at this site was, as a rule, well below net worth.

BCAP became the first security token on the SharesPost alternative trading platform. Asset trading is available to accredited investors.

This is an important milestone for the digital securities ecosystem. Now companies can efficiently raise capital and provide liquidity globally by leveraging blockchain technology in a way that complies with securities laws. We are very excited to be connecting the more than 50,000 institutional and individual accredited investors using the SharesPost marketplace with companies and funds like Blockchain Capital that are leading the way. We believe that over time digital securities will join preferred and common stock as the mainstays of the private capital market.

Telegram Open Network (TON) blockchain platform can be presented at the 49th World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. However, there is no official information about Pavel Durov’s speech at WEF yet.

At the same time, according to The Bell, during January there should be a meeting of the largest project investors with a demonstration of the test version of TON. The launch of the main network is expected in March.

According to the latest TON roadmap, which appeared in the Telegram-channel @Tgram in early January, the launch of the main network may be postponed for 2-3 months due to the “innovative nature of the development”.

TON is about 90% ready, and the latest news about the platform will appear in February 2019. At the same time, an audit of Testnet is scheduled in order to find errors and flaws.

Pavel Durov hadn't provide any official comment on the situation.

Note that initially the launch of a test network for TON was planned for the second quarter of 2018. At the end of the same year, a full launch of the platform and the Telegram Wallet wallet was planned.

Earlier it became known that Pavel Durov filed an application for the liquidation of the Telegram Messenger LLP. According to the assumption of some experts, the decision will relate exclusively to changes in the corporate structure of the company.
