SEC Warns of Celebrity Endorsement, ICOs Might be a Target

Source : SEC Warns of Celebrity Endorsement, ICOs Might be a Target The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued an Investor Alert: Celebrity Endorsements from its Office of Investor Education and Advocacy (OIEA). “It is never a good idea to make an investment decision just because someone famous says a product or service is a good investment,” the statement scolded.  Also read: UK & Taiwanese Regulators Weigh-in on Bitcoin Laundering, France ponders ICOs SEC Warns Against Celebrity Endorsements “Celebrities, from movie stars to professional athletes, can be found on TV, radio, and social media endorsing a wide variety of products and services,” the OIEA post read, “sometimes even including investment opportunities.” The advisory is full of seemingly common-sense statements, but it does come on the heels of an initial coin offering (ICO) phenomenon whereby celebrities from Floyd Mayweather to DJ Khaled are pushing ICOs. “But a celebrity endorsement does not mean that an investment is legitimate or that it is appropriate for all investors,” the statement continued. “Celebrities,” the SEC understands, “like anyone else, can be lured into participating (even unknowingly) in a fraudulent scheme.” “Also, celebrities are sometimes linked to products or services without their consent so the celebrity may not even have endorsed the investment,” the statement details, as in a recent case where crypto celebrities, according to Forbes, were apparently used by Alex Tapscott’s firm without their knowledge. The agency lists three steps investors should consider: “Check out the background … through the SEC’s Investment Adviser Public Disclosure (IAPD) database,” carefully read “any prospectus and the company’s latest financial reports,” and consider “the investment’s potential costs and fees, risks, and benefits,” the post highlights. Finally, never “make an investment decision based solely on a celebrity endorsement,” the agency urges. Enforcement The SEC isn’t just warning about possible celebrity scams, it’s also going after ICOs that claim to be backed by real estate or diamonds. It is launching a civil complaint against Recoin Group Foundation LLC and DRC World Inc., in conjunction with criminal charges brought against Maksim Zaslavski who is alleged to have claimed such backing for new cryptos. As bitcoin’s valuation continues to reach new highs, it does appear more and more scams are going to increase as well. Are celebrity endorsements worthwhile in the crypto ecosystem?

BTC Inc. and Genesis Mining Form New Venture, Genesis Engineering

Source : BTC Inc. and Genesis Mining Form New Venture, Genesis Engineering Hong Kong, November 2, 2017 — BTC Inc., parent group of BTC Studios, BTC Labs and BTC Media — the largest media group in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space — and Genesis Mining, the largest cloud mining service provider, partnered to introduce Genesis Engineering. Based in Hong Kong, the joint partnership sets out to become a leader in the global cryptocurrency mining industry through education, consulting and local partnerships. The venture will focus on development in regions around the world that have excess energy capacity, including the Americas, the CIS region and Asia. Mining for cryptocurrency has grown from hobbyists using personal computers to an industry that earns more than $2 billion in revenue annually. The key to a profitable large-scale mining operation is its access to a large source of electricity at low costs. Currently, China and the U.S. have the most mining operations. “We see opportunities for education and awareness around mining as bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are just starting to hit mainstream awareness,” said David Bailey, CEO of BTC Media. “We expect growth for the cryptocurrency mining industry globally: in the CIS region, Europe and Asia. Centers of mining are often places with excess power capacity and relatively cheap electricity rates. As a result, mining operations bring benefits to those areas in terms of both employment and resource allocation.” “As the largest cloud mining company on the market, we are on the lookout for excess energy supply in certain regions,” said Marco Streng, co-founder and CEO of Genesis Mining. “Mining is a project taken on by both individuals and organizations. It enables blockchain technology to work, and it can also generate profit.” Mining is key to the cryptocurrency ecosystem as miners verify and process transactions on a blockchain network, such as Bitcoin, Litecoin or Ethereum. With Genesis Engineering, BTC Inc. and Genesis Mining have partnered to combine a wealth of knowledge and analysis of cryptocurrency with leadership in the mining industry. Genesis Engineering plans to develop and promote the expansion of the cryptocurrency mining industry in underserved markets where mining would benefit local economies. Further, Genesis Engineering is available to consult with businesses, utilities companies and governments to accelerate the construction of new mining facilities and best utilize the power demand for local businesses and the economy. Most immediately, Genesis Engineering is hosting events and workshops to raise awareness of the opportunities for mining.   About Genesis Engineering Founded through a partnership between BTC Inc. and Genesis Mining, Genesis Engineering promotes cryptocurrency mining through education, consulting and local partnerships within regions around the world that have the excess energy capacity to support cryptocurrency mining. 

SimplyVital Health Push Back Token Offering to Meet AML/KYC Requirements

Source : SimplyVital Health Push Back Token Offering to Meet AML/KYC Requirements SimplyVital Health, the company behind the blockchain-based healthcare protocol Health Nexus, has announced a delay to its token offering to give further time for AML and KYC analysis. [Note: This is a press release.] SimplyVital Health is dedicated to creating the best possible foundation for its Health Cash [HLTH] token that is critical to building out a new healthcare ecosystem and amid a climate of heightened interest in cryptocurrency offerings, SimplyVital Health is adhering to current best practices as closely as possible. Kat Kuzmeskas, MPH CEO, SimplyVital Health, stated: While the AML/KYC process during the pre-sale is a significant bottleneck, we are happy to comply with this requirement as it not only helps us review our earliest supporters, but even in some cases, we have the opportunity to connect personally with them. SimplyVital Health is responsible for one of the first working blockchain applications in healthcare called ConnectingCare, a solution for securing patient care data in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountancy Act (HIPAA). ConnectingCare integrates blockchain technology to allow users to securely access medical data, reducing friction in the system and improving outcomes.  Now, SimplyVital Health plans to scale out their operations with the introduction of the Health Nexus protocol, a healthcare-specific blockchain protocol fuelled by HLTH. The unique design of Health Nexus allows users to securely share medical data across multiple care providers whilst still ensuring data storage meets stringent HIPAA compliance guidelines. The Health Nexus protocol can bring huge benefits for the industry by connecting healthcare facilities with insurance agencies, pharmaceutical companies, and research institutions to significantly augment existing care pathways. In real terms this is accomplished via an executive governance system that carefully ensures node validation only takes place by compliant entities, forming an entirely new protocol for data integrity and security within healthcare. According to Accenture miscommunication and waste in existing healthcare systems contributes to a loss of $12bn per year. SimplyVital Health’s CEO Kat Kuzmeskas has seen this first hand from her work in the industry in several roles including strategic planner for Yale New Haven Health. Her experience within healthcare and vision to improve on the status quo earned her a place in Fortune magazine this year as ’34 Leaders Who Are Changing Healthcare’. The team includes blockchain experts and business leaders putting SimplyVital Health in a strong position to expand. The HLTH token pre-sale period will now continue until 20th November with the main token offering launching on the 22nd of November at 17:00 UTC. The extension allows further opportunity for pre-sale contributors to receive 40% bonus tokens for contributions of 35 ETH or more.
