The ETH from the crowdsale moved only 5 days ago from the contract. The exchange rate then was floating around $47 to $49.

Why is your exchange rate suddenly $44.64?

Please show us records of transaction history.

This is not good, but I am very glad Gleb warned us.


Will remind you after it raises 300% the week of release Grin

"Blockchain Capital also announced today the fund’s first investment will be into Parity Technologies Ltd (formerly known as Ethcore). Parity is the company that created the Parity Ethereum software. Dr. Gavin Wood, the creator of the Ethereum specification, has recently also proposed a revolutionary heterogenous multi­chain framework called Polkadot. Polkadot is a third­ generation public, permissionless blockchain technology designed to be at once scalable and extensible, solving two of the greatest problems preventing widespread adoption of blockchain technology today."

Those are great news and Parity/Polkadot is in the best hands possible with Gavin Woods, seems like a very promising project. I'm not sure how they plan to monetize this eventually, my theory is that there will be an ICO eventually and the fund will act as VC/early founder and get a share of the network.

Exactly - how are they going to monetise and show a profit.  Can't say I'm impressed with the first investment.

I don't really understand what you guys are on about. This announcement today is imo the first good news this project had since the rather messy ICO.

Do you know how many millions Gavin could collect in minutes if he did an ICO for this thing? But he won't.

This is exactly what I was hoping Blockchaincapital would do. Use their connections to invest in projects that I (as a standard investor) could never get in. This is what could make the tokens valuable. Connections to the industry that we all do not have. I did not give them my money to invest in yet another shitty ICO that is open to the public. I can easily do that myself.

Definitely, these are great news, I was just speculating that Polkadot most likely will have an ICO down the line, if so, the fund will have a ticket already as early founders. If not, then there are plenty of companies like this that had been generating a lot of income without any sort of token and as blockchain start advancing more demand will generate for experts, consultancy, risk management, etc. I can't think of a better company to invest with Gavin Woods at the helm honestly. As you mentioned this is exactly why the fund was created, to invest in actual companies that generate regular profits, not just foundations or tokens.

I'm just gonna leave this here: http://www.delawarelitigation.com/rhodes(3).pdf

Quote
By way of example, they point out that Filipowski
and Rhodes added more than a dozen SilkRoad
Equity employees to InterAct's payroll within the first
few months of 2005. Contributing little or no
economic benefit to InterAct, these employees cost
the Company more than $5 million in salaries and
other expenses. The Plaintiffs also cite SilkRoad
Holding's acquisition of TrueSentry, an entity owned
by SilkRoad Equity, as evidence of the Defendants'
self-dealing, not least of all because numerous
TrueSentry employees were shifted to InterAct's
payroll.

Read the entire thing, and in case you Investards missed it, the exact same players are behind BCAP.

Sans looking/searching, I wonder if John McAfee is involved in this venture in some capacity. (a hunch made upon a recent find involving a John McNulty)



Marina once again had the mods delete definitive proof I presented about Marina K.'s true identity (several more posts). But why the fuck should I care? It's not my $10M invested in BCAP. You fuckers who invested are the ones who should be concerned.

BCAP just run on the right way, commonly investor have no chance to invest those kinds of startup company like bitpay, or have no way to  get an early purchase reward, but the fund can do.
whatever, BCAP invested in Parity Technologies Ltd, at least it will get the early purchase reward , it is more than a commonly investor with the same money. The BACP maybe even have got some stocks of parity company, not only token. If a common investor, he can only get token.b

I think some have already ended. To answer your question, others in this community have weighed in avoiding some of the above.

What's strange is that TokenHub deleted the pages of the bottom five listed immediately after BCAP's ICO. Then Tean Argon has had mega posts of mine deleted from this thread by mods since this thread is not self-moderated.

https://www.wired.com/2017/03/initial-coin-offering-stock-thats-not-stock/

Quote
This method is new to the ICO world, but probably warranted. The structures to help ICOs succeed and thrive in the mainstream are still evolving—like the Argon Group, which longtime Wall Streeter Stan Miroshnik founded to help oversee ICOs. Argon will bookrun the token offering on behalf of Blockchain Capital, meaning, in this case, that it will actually issue the token. “Our mission is to help this new capital market evolve,” Miroshnik says.

Firstly, exactly how does a long-time resident of Russia up to only a couple years ago be dubbed "longtime Wall Streeter"?

Secondly, note that Stan Miroshnik is the founder of Argon Group to help oversees ICOs.

Thirdly, referring to the list above, other ICOs were presented to Investards as also entities seeking funding alongside BCAP, again, later deleted from the platform, leaving ONLY BCAP, of which I contend was the sole purpose of this piece of shit Argon Group headed by biker Marina Khaustova (or Khaoustovar), co-founder of Argon Group.

First Digital Token Sale By VC Firm Raises $10 Million In Six Hours
Blockchain Capital offers investors a new take on initial coin offerings. On April 20, 2017, the San Francisco venture firm made history by offering the first digital token backed by a venture capital firm, raising $10 million in six hours from investors. Blockchain also announced Thursday that Parity Technologies, creator of the Parity Ethereum software, is a target for investment. Parity built an ethereum client that integrates directly into browsers.
Brock Pierce, co-founder of Blockchain Capital, told Reuters that the move toward virtual currency represents a desire to "democratize access" and provide "enhanced liquidity to the venture capital asset class.” Pierce is also chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation. A pioneer in the field of virtual currency, he’s raised more than $200 million for the companies has founded.More

I have a hunch as to how these ICO are being funded so quickly. Is it possible that hedge fund participates (e.g. common Joe with an 401K et al. at his workplace) are participating in them unbeknownst to them by the managers of hedge funds, they augmenting the scant few from the crypto community, namely this forum where the ICO managers spend most their time after penning press releases which in turn generate quasi-organic news?

Since I know as a fact that my posts are read by 3-LAs, I'm sure they'll now give consideration to this possibility if they haven't already. Your welcome, suits.

Think about it. If a bank could have its employees create over a million bogus accounts, it's nothing for a hedge fund outfit to get its trusted employees to participate in crypto ICOs.

"ETHCORE’s mission is to enable businesses and organisations to capitalise on blockchain technology and benefit from the new opportunities it presents. We develop cutting-edge software solutions for enterprises and industries to unlock the full value of decentralised technology. We believe that decentralised technology has the power to fundamentally change and enhance the systems used by businesses, consumers, and governments every day."

I just realized that Ethcore is the best investment BCAP could ever make. Yes, people can invest on the Ethereum public blockchain but enterprise side of Ethereum is where the money is at. There is a possibility ethcore could sell enterprise style ethereum to corporations for millions. There is no way for the public to invest in Enterprise Ethereum Alliance or IBM's Hyperledger but the public can invest in Ethcore. Just mi 2 cents.

I'm still upset about the conversion rate though.  Undecided

The conversionrate issue might be because its oversubscribed, basicly making each token worth more the the $1 target.

The number of tokens was fixed at 10M tokens, if they managed to get $11M before they closed the ICO, then each token would be worth $1.1, making the conversionrate seem worse.

I dont know if that what has happened, but I think its a possibility.

The conversion was fair in a way that it was very close to what we sent at the time. The thing is the actual conversion happened many days after the ICO and both BTC and especially ETH increased in value. Where would that difference go is something I particularly don't know but it should be refunded or the value of each token increased.

And more of my posts were deleted from this thread.  Cry I could start a whole new thread on BCAP that'll be many pages long using my deleted posts as fodder alone.

To recap, we have an entity accepting bitcoins through an entity consisting of Russians with a charter in Singapore so to invest the funds in Ethereum while shorting the Investards. How close am I?

Meanwhile, if an honest B&M business deposits U$10,001 into his bank account, a microscope is stuck so far up his ass ...

But no red flags are raised by what I outlined perhaps because there's an FBI lawyer on the advisory board.

As long as they hold them in BTC or ETH the value of each token is increased.
There are 10M tokens with the combined value of what ever the fund holds. Havning them be worth more than $10M is a good thing.

I was under the impression both BTC/ETH were already converted to fiat, they don't hold crypto anymore. We got our tokens based on that final rate (around $44.xx for ETH). If they have 11M as you mentioned earlier because of this and each token is valued at $1.1 then that's perfectly acceptable. If not, then a refund of the difference should be made.
