Today, the blockchain focused venture fund Krypital Group, has officially denied information about its connection with the upcoming launch of the South Korean crypto exchange KBcoin. The corresponding announcement appeared in its blog.

Krypital Group says that KBcoin did contact them regarding possible cooperation, but these negotiations did not bring any results. As reasons for not cooperating, the foundation indicates that the project did not provide it with a demo version of its product and information about team members, and the Krypital Group itself “did not manage to confirm the authenticity of the KBcoin product”. Also, the Krypital Group cannot confirm whether KBcoin uses a fully-fledged KYC procedure that meets the relevant requirements in its current ICO process.

We are known in the industry for the high quality of our cooperative projects. In light of the above circumstances, we regret that we are unable to reach any cooperation with KBcoin under the Kbit Group. As to the fact that KBcoindisplayed Krypital Grouop, Cybermiles, Arcblock, Merculet, Egretia as its partners on its website and/or in other channels for any commercial purpose without authorization, we reserve the right to enforce any and/or all legal remedied available to us.

ICO, during which KBcoin intends to raise $ 8 million, ends on November 15. The main competitive advantages of the trading platform include the possibility of receiving dividends from KBcoin tokens stored on users' accounts, targeting the listing of popular coins without collecting high commissions and strong partners support, the list of which with today's announcement of the Krypital Group is seriously depleted. 

Bitfinex's LEO Token Whitpaper to be Released

Public stage of tokensale may not be conducted if hardcap of $1B won't be reached during closed sale

Bitfinex Cryptocurrency Exchange published the whitepaper LEO token, with which it intends to raise $ 1 billion during the initial exchange offering (IEO).

It is expected that this amount will allow to fill the previously formed deficit of $ 850 million - the site operator will redeem tokens monthly for an amount of 27% of the profits.

Private stage of tokensale ends on May 11. If the intended hardcap won't be reached by this time, Bitfinex may refuse the public part of the campaign.

If fewer than 1 billion USDt tokens are sold by private token sale, the Issuer may thereafter sell remaining tokens at times and in a manner it deems appropriate in its sole discretion, consistent with applicable law. 

LEO Whitepaper

The issuer of the LEO token is Unus Sed Leo Limited, the newly registered IEO-iFinex platform.

The document also says that iFinex, which will be launched in June, will actively participate in the development of the second-tier Lightning Network.

iFinex has joined with a number of other companies and individuals to help develop and finalize the support for digital assets on Lightning Network. Ideally, digital assets developed and introduced by iFinex, including the LEO token, will be among the first digital assets launched on the Lighting Network.

In addition, Bitfinex plans to create a “a licensed and regulated security tokens exchange”, launch a derivative product with security at USDT and leverage up to 100x, as well as the Dazaar Big Data Marketplace and Betfinex exchange rates.

Another project will be the modular set of tools, libraries and protocols μFinex, based on the principles of open source. It will be used in both exchange and derivative products.

It worth reminding that in late April, the Attorney General’s Office of New York reported receiving a court order against Bitfinex in connection with the alleged loss of the last $ 850 million and the concealment of this fact from market participants.

Representatives of the trading platform said that we are not talking about permanent loss. These funds are frozen in bank accounts of Panamanian processing Crypto Capital Corp., located in four countries.

To ensure liquidity, Bitfinex was forced to use Tether Limited's funds for a loan and, according to the AG’s Office, has already received $ 750 million from the company's reserves. This was considered by the department as a crime.

On May 7, the New York State Supreme Court upheld the injunction against the Bitfinex Bitcoin Exchange, which does not allow Tether Limited to use its reserves for Exchange lending and other investment activities.
