Telegram TON Investors Vote Against Refund Amid SEC Probe

Published

The Telegram TON investors are in the latest altcoin news in the midst of the $1.7 billion Gram token sale – for voting against the return of their funds. According to reports by Forbes Russia on October 23, the Telegram Open Network (TON) has two sources who told reporters that a majority vote – with the inclusion of investors in both rounds of the offering – had agreed to a postponement of the TON network until April 30 and upholding their investment in the project.

As we previously reported on our site, the anticipated launch of TON on October 31 has been delayed in the wake of an abrupt intervention from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) declaring its 2018 token offering as illegal.

The agreement between Telegram and investors had been that if the network failed to roll out the platform on the pledged date, the Telegram TON investors would be eligible for a refund. Speaking of, yesterday (October 23) was the deadline for investors to decide as to whether they would choose to demand a 77% refund of the investment or not.

The company had already sent the Telegram TON investors a proposal to wait or otherwise return a portion of their funds a week after the SEC had secured a temporary injunction against the launch of TON and Gram’s circulation against the firm and its offshore subsidiaries.

Now that the investors’ endorsement is assured, Telegram will reportedly be able to spend another $80 million of the total $1.7 billion investment before April. A source that is close to Durov told Forbes that the investors’ decision is set to be officially announced today, October 24th.

While the Telegram TON investors are now confident against a refund, the company faces a court hearing that is scheduled for February 18 and 19, at which Telegram representatives will reportedly seek a court ruling on the main argument that Gram is not a security.

As the cryptocurrency news from October 21 showed, Telegram has reportedly sent another letter to investors stating that it saw the postponement of the hearing from October to February as a major and positive development. The statement in the letter read:

“The February hearings are different from those scheduled for October 24, because they will only consider the possible postponement of the launch of the platform. We and our advisers will use the time to ensure that at the February hearing, Telegram’s position is presented and supported as much as possible.”

How DigixDAO Works: Guide To Its Tokenized Gold System

how digixdao works
The coming altcoin news inspire us to share the story of one token named DGD and the organization behind it, DigixDAO. As you probably know, the project plans to create a new cryptocurrency backed by actual bars of gold. DigixDAO is the Digix Decentralized Autonomous Organization, a group of participants making decisions about how to grow their ecosystem. But how DigixDAO works in detail - and how can the process of tokenized gold help investors? Well, all of the DGD token holders will make decisions related to any proposals submitted to DigixDAO. As a reward for voting and decision making in the growth of the project, DGD holders receive rewards related to DGX, another token that represents 1 gram of gold. Thus, the tokenization of gold aims to provide stability and store of value in the crypto space. While Bitcoin is often referred to as digital gold, DigixDAO is referred to the cryptocurrency which can actually digitize actual gold and provide ownership. In order to distribute DGX tokens representing 1g of gold, Digix uses Proof of Asset (PoA) in a process which involves recording possession of an asset on the Ethereum blockchain and the creation of PoA Asset Cards.
“The asset cards are certified using sequential digital signatures from the entities in the chain of custody, namely, the Vendor, Custodian, Auditor, which are further validated with proof of purchase and depository receipts provided and uploaded onto the InterPlanetary File System for permanent record
Located in Singapore, the Custodian Vault is The Safe House. The independent Auditor is Bureau Veritas Inspectorate while the Vendor is ValueMax Singapore. Seeing how DigixDAO works, it is also important to note that the Proof of Asset cards are stored on the Ethereum blockchain and contain:
  • Timestamp of card creation
  • SKU of the gold bar
  • Bar serial number
  • Chain of custody digital signatures (Vendor, Custodian, Auditor)
  • Purchase receipt
  • Audit documentation
  • Depository receipt
  • Storage Fees due
The DGX tokens, on the other hand, are created by a smart contract that receives PoA cards and generates these tokens for each gram of gold. For instance, if a 100g PoA card is sent to the smart contract, 100 DGX tokens are created and then sent to an Ethereum wallet. In each case, a DGX token represents 1 gram of gold and is divisible to 0.001g. For more information on the entire project, follow our cryptocurrency news daily or visit DigixDAO's website.

It also does the job of recording and transferring arbitrary names by attaching data to the names up to 520 bytes.

Three Altcoins Could Initiate A Major Upside Despite Bloodbath

Three Altcoins Could
The bloodbath occurring today on the markets show that the regulation crypto is not the only aspect that is affecting the market. Currently, cryptocurrencies are erasing their February highs amid coronavirus fears and following the stock market crashes which have been there for a couple of days now. According to recent analysis, three altcoins could still initiate a major upside despite the entire situation. A top trader is now in the coming altcoin news for noting that a bullish price action can be still seen despite the intense selloff which brought Bitcoin back to $8,600 at one point. This seloff came as a result of the recent rejection at $10,000 for the dominant coin, with its slow grind lower in the time following the rejection reaching a boiling point yesterday after it broke through the strong support that had been established at $9,500. Naturally, this led al ot of coins to see some intense selling pressure, some of which losing with double-digit declines. However, there are three altcoins which can buckle up and post new gains. In times when "buy the dip" s a phrase used to motivate traders to purchase more coins, the crypto analyst Crypto Michael spoke about the two cryptocurrencies which may offer a prime opportunity for gains.
“LINK and XTZ providing an example of the strength of this market. During 2016/2017 several retracements were done, after which a strong bounce occurred. Even ETH / BTC is now showing strength. There [are] some opportunities in bull markets to buy the dip, this might be one,” he noted.
https://twitter.com/CryptoMichNL/status/1232737766192173057 The Chainlink news are exciting at this point for this analyst, mostly because the LINK token has not been able to invalidate the ongoing bull market. Same goes for Tezos' XTZ altcoin and even Ethereum, which are all seen as altcoins that could initiate parabolic journeys in the near term. It is very possible that the strongest altcoins in the market will continue their upward journeys once the crypto market begins bouncing. Right now, the total cryptocurrency market cap is at $251 billion which is more than $60 billion less than during the strongest rally from earlier this month. Bitcoin's dominance has also fallen and is now at 64% and the 24 hour volume at $200 billion indicates that there is still a strong seloff happening on the markets.
