Telegram GRAM Token Will Reportedly Be Available In Two Months

Published

on

Telegram GRAM

The altcoin news today show that the plans for the Telegram GRAM token are apparently coming to an end – and that the token will reportedly be here within the next two months. The coins will be delivered in this timeframe, the company said.

Right now, the deadline to deliver Grams is still set for October 31. This is when the major messaging platform is planning to get all the coins – and why it is trying to do it before the date. The Telegram GRAM token, according to New York Times, must be delivered by this date – and if the company fails to do this – it would need to return $1.7 billion to more than 100 investors.

While some people will immediately be able to sell their Grams on unspecified exchanges, the latest cryptocurrency news feature a report that shows some of the earliest investors for the Telegram GRAM token agreed to a holding period.

As we previously reported, Telegram was said to be looking for East Asia – and specifically some exchanges in Japan – where it planned to officially debut the Telegram GRAM token. In July this year, the Gram went on pre-sale on the Japanese exchange platform Liquid by Quoine at the price of $4 which was 201% more than what the Telegram investors paid in the second initial coin offering (ICO) round in March 2018.

The report in the New York Times also shows that a test version of the Gram network will be released in the next week or two. The Grams, as it says, are intended to make it possible to buy and sell other goods on Telegram. As for the Gram digital wallets, they should be available to the 200 million to 300 million global users of Telegram. Also, the Gram network is promised to be decentralized with Telegram not having control over how and where the coins can move.

According to one UK-based author named David Gerrard who was featured in the altcoin news, the Telegram GRAM token can “hardly get something compliant with regulators in place by the end of October.”

“Telegram’s plans for Gram look very like Facebook’s plans for Libra — a large network runs a token as a private interchange currency, with completely private issuance, with questionable backing,” Gerard outlined in a recent blog post.

In the cryptocurrency news today, we find out more about his plan.The former UNICEF CEO stated that he will be using his extensive experience in the charity sector to help Electroneum deliver on the humanitarian mission that aims to extend bank-like services to people who are unbanked. He added that he was most impressed by the project’s initiatives aiming to get the disadvantaged people around the world to be connected to the internet and to be able to earn in the evolving job market.According to the announcement on his personal blog, Bull will be working with the crypto asset company Electroneum to help deliver on his mission.

In the blog post, Bull explained that the current initiatives are aimed to help the globe’s poorest people to improve their lives and to catch up to the developed world fit with the rapidly digesting world.Electroneum has multiple initiatives that will be able to provide access to bank-like facilities and education and also will help the individuals find work in the global economy rapidly shifting towards freelance positions.

Court Fees Arrived: Craig Wright Has To Pay $658K

court fees
Craig Wright to give $658k in court fees, demanded by the estate that blamed him of stealing $10 billion worth of Bitcoin from Dave Kleiman, his late partner as previously reported in the crypto news.Sanctions were issued against Craig Wright by the Magistrate Judge Bruce E. Reinhart because he didn’t comply with the court order that asked him to surrender half of his Bitcoin holdings to plaintiff Ira Kleiman, brother of the late Dave Kleiman. At the same moment, the court ordered Craig Wright to pay for Ira’s court fees and legal costs.However, the off-the-court negotiations did not develop into a real deal. On Wednesday the estate filed a motion that orders Wright to pay $592,558 in lawyer fees and $66,023 in expenses. Judge Beth Bloom of the U.S. District studied the motion on Thursday and passed it to Judge Reinhart for a final recommendation. Ira said in the motion:
“This amount is based on reasonable hourly rates — commensurate with those actually charged by these and comparable firms in matters in this district — and an appropriate number of hours worked in light of the scope and extent of Craig [Wright]’s deception and the amount at stake in this litigation”
After Judge Reinhart found Craig Wright guilty of making false declarations, producing tampered trust documents, and lying under oath, it is hugely inconvenient for him. In 2013 after the passing of Dave, Wright illegally gained access to Dave’s bitcoins, as per the court. The court ordered Wright to give back those bitcoins to Dave’s estate.Nevertheless, Wright’s response was full of excuses. He claimed that he does not have access to Dave and his bitcoins since its held in a blind trust. A digital forensics expert, on the other hand, said that Wright is lying about the Trust. Ownership of that bitcoin could also prove that Wright is the real Satoshi.But Wright had responded with a ton of excuses, claiming that he does not have access to Dave’s bitcoins because they are held in a blind trust. But a digital forensics expert said that Wright’s claims about the trust are false. Also, the ownership of that bitcoin could have proven the claim that Wright is the real Satoshi.Wright required a 30-day extension to respond to the court sanctions. He agreed to off-court negotiations to reach settlement deal with the Kleiman estate. In November, Ira informed the court that Wright cannot finance the deal, and because of that, he was pulling out of the settlement deal.

china classifies
China classifies altcoins as illegal and we can clearly see some deterioration on the market. Falling more than $550 in a few hours, yesterday Bitcoin (BTC) had severe deterioration of its price. At the moment after the news Bitcoin (BTC) marked a 6-month low, and fell for $500 more as we are reading in the latest altcoin news.The president of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping stressed the importance of the country’s involvement with blockchain-based technologies. From then onwards the government of the People’s Republic of China held the narrative “Blockchain, not Bitcoin”, reminding interested parties that cryptos are illegal.The Head office of the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) in Shanghai, has made a new regulatory update, stating that the POBC will clamp down on crypto trading and will strengthen its regulation and control after China classifies all cryptocurrencies as illegal.The existing strict regulations would be implemented like in the past by the authorities of the People’s Republic of China, according to the update, and activities related to crypto will be continuously monitored within PBOC’s jurisdiction. Furthermore, any such activities will be “disposed of immediately, and prevented from happening early” as soon as they are identified.The stance of the authorities in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is that there are many risks involved in the issuance and trading of cryptos such as asset tempering, business failure, and investment-related speculations. The point is that investors shouldn’t combine blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, because the policies of the government of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) are treating exceptionally different the two questions.The moment the news arrived in the markets, Bitcoin’s (BTC) price fell to $7,000, losing $500 more of its dollar value. As it was reported earlier, Bitcoin (BTC) was not traded at these levels since May of 2019, making this a new low for the cryptocurrency. For now, the well-known support line of Bitcoin (BTC) is standing about $7,000 and is holding good, but the situation can be changed in a fraction of a second. The price of Bitcoin (BTC) can fall down to $6,200 because that’s where more demand is found.
