Overstock is to open an exchange for legal token trading
28 September 2017   1242

It seems like the regulated token trading is coming. Thus, Overstock's tØ is launching a first-of-its-kind alternative trading system (ATS) that will provide a platform for the exchange of cryptographic tokens categorized in the U.S. as securities.

As reported by coindesk.com, the new system is based on the already existing platform tØ in partnership with the fintech company RenGentt and Argon Group (an investment bank specializing in ICO capital raising). The ATS will be regulated by both the SEC and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

I think it's a historic event. We're opening a new type of capital market.

CEO of Overstock

Until now, there have been no such platforms, and its creation can be seen as a major step in the development of the entire cryptoindustry. Today, ICO issuers either must attempt to create a token that does not meet the SEC's definition of a security, or they must meet that definition and give up the liquidity that comes from being publicly traded. Emma Channing, Argon's general counsel and interim CEO, argues that the new platform announced today will eliminate that choice.

We believe this is exactly what the SEC was asking for in the DAO report.

As detailed, Emma Channing believes her firm's new ATS could see $2 billion in trading within the next 12 months.

Crypto Investor to File Lawsuit Against AT&T

Michael Terpin believes that AT&T helped scammers to still his $24M worth crypto
16 August 2018   120

In the Los Angeles District Court, a 69-page lawsuit was filed by BitAngels founder Michael Terpin against the American telecom giant AT&T. Terpin claims that the operator assisted fraudsters in "stealing digital personal data" from the account on his smartphone, which is why he lost $ 24 million in cryptocurrency, according to an official release.

According to Terpin, for seven months, there were two hacks. Initially, an attacker got access to his phone number without providing a password or correct identification data. Later, the phone number was used to steal crypto.

AT&T’s studied indifference to protecting its customers’ privacy and financial assets is a metastasizing cancer, threatening hundreds of millions of unsuspecting AT&T’s customers. Our client had no idea when he initially signed up, nor when later he was promised the highest level of security for his account, that low-level retail employees with access to AT&T records, or people posing as them, can be bribed by criminals to override every system that AT&T advertises as unassailable.

Lead counsel for Terpin in this complaint

Michael Terpin requires AT & T to pay him $ 224 million - $ 200 million for moral damages and $ 24 million for actual theft.
