At the moment of press, Welltrado token sale stage is live, with 98% of tokens sold! Good result!

2. ROOTS

RootProject is a decentralized ecosystem for nonprofits. ROOTS tokens create an economic logic within the ecosystem that powerfully incentivizes collaboration, participation, and sharing of costly information. A crowdfunding platform that traps value in the ecosystem provides participants with a common forum to involve the public and one another, while the token model allows the platform to dramatically out price-compete traditional crowdfunding platforms. Within the ecosystem, RootProject operates its own on-the-ground nonprofit that strengthens the online network, supporting demand for ROOTS tokens. It aligns the interests of token holders and society’s most vulnerable by correlating demand for the token with institutional size and efficacy.

At the moment of press, there's no info on the amount of funds, raised by Root Project.

3. Travelkoin

The Travelkoin Platform puts an end to the complexity and cost of doing business in the travel eco-system. Payments are immediate and suppliers can deal directly with their counter-party without the need for a costly middle man. This is made possible by the blockchain and the custom made smart contracts for travel suppliers. All travel suppliers can get behind the Travelkoin powered membership platform without having to maintain their own. Travelers are compensated for bookings, reviews in services within the travel supplier network or by converting to fiat currency.

As you can see on the tweet above, Travilkoin "don't need to do an ICO any longer. Instead will be doing a airdrop to the travel industry when the time is right." Interesting move. We've keep our eyes on this project.

We will keep our eye on these campaigns and we hope that their projects will be successful. We are really grateful to our readers for your opinion expression. Please, check the new Top Upcoming ICO and take part in new poll!

Tezos Co-Founder penaltied by Wall Street Regulator

Tezos co-founder Arthur Breitman is punished with a fine and a trading veto for two years by The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA)
20 April 2018   117

The Wall Street regulatory institution has come to a adjudgement with Breitman after he was indicted of producing false statements about his side venture (Tezos) while he was actually employed at Morgan Stanley. All registered FINRA securities specialists are demanded to report any for-profit activity outside of their stated employment if there is “reasonable expectation of compensation.”

The regulatory activity started from a Reuters article published in October that discovered Breitman, who is filed with FINRA as a French citizen, never disclosed hise work for Tezos while still employed at Morgan Stanley within the years of 2014-2015.

Together with the other proofs published in Reuters` article is a business plan written in 2015 that lists Brietmen as chief executive and makes projections on the potential for the company to be worth as much as 20 billion dollars over 15 years.  They also cited two papers Breitman penned under the pseudonym L.M. Goodman about Tezos, showing that he purposely hid his connection with the firm.

FINRA enclosed that “Breitman did not notify Morgan Stanley at any time that he was engaging in these outside business activities.” The adjudgement conditions of April 18 are that Breitman shun any broker-deals for 2 years and pay a $20,000 fine. Breitman neither accept nor disclaim the indictments.

The settlement with FINRA is unrelated to and has no impact on the launch of the Tezos network. Arthur cooperated fully with FINRA at all times and Arthur is pleased to put this personal matter behind him.

Last July the Tezos foundation increased for $232 million from their initial coin offering to found the blockchain network for smart contracts but still haven’t delivered any of the cryptocurrency to supporters because of infighting and legal problems in and outside of the boardroom.
