Tezos Investors Got a Chance to Sell This Week – And They Took It


After waiting nearly a year to get their tokens, the first thing many Tezos investors did was get rid of them.

At least, that seems to be the case according to available market data, which indicates a wave of selling has taken place since the tech backing the crypto asset was released in beta.

All in all, prices fell 34 percent on Monday to $2.00, according to CoinMarketCap. From a Monday high above $4, the price dropped 74 percent to a Friday low of $1.10, before paring losses to reach roughly $1.76 as of press time.

Notably, the sell-off coincided with the first listing of Tezos tokens on an exchange, meaning investors were quick to take advantage of access to liquidity.

US Judge Says Boxer-Backed ICO Token Is a Security


A Florida district court has published an analysis explaining how a crypto token is a security.

Magistrate judge Andrea Simonton of the Southern District of Florida, in a report on whether to freeze the assets of the Floyd Mayweather-endorsed Centra Tech crypto startup, released a detailed explanation of how the company's token demonstrates the different aspects of a security under existing law. While it may not be a precedent for other similar court cases, the report may be cited in other legal battles asking whether crypto tokens are securities or not.

The defendants notably are not challenging the assertion that Centra's CTR token is a security, according to the document. Unlike the case brought by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, this decision is part of a lawsuit filed by previous investors claiming they lost money due to the unregistered securities sale.

The EOS Arbitrator Problem: A Crypto Governance Breakdown Explained


«They have to figure their own shit out.»

Those were the harsh words of one of EOS' top «block producers» – the network participants in charge of maintaining the blockchain – on Monday as the world's fifth largest cryptocurrency attracted public ridicule for its current state of confusion.

As told to CoinDesk by Kevin Rose, co-founder and head of strategy at EOS New York, the statement could reflect the broader snags the software has faced since release, but this comment was focused specifically on the EOS Core Arbitration Forum (ECAF).

So far, it seems many both inside and outside the EOS community aren't clear what ECAF, the main body tasked with resolving disputes between token holders on the network, is and what control it has over transactions.

EOS Is Launched But Not Yet Live – Why?


Visit any EOS Telegram channel and some version of this question will pop up again and again: Is the mainnet live yet?

While the EOS blockchain technically launched on June 10 at 13:00 UTC, the answer to that question is effectively no. That's because the crypto tokens created by Block.one's $4 billion EOS initial coin offering (ICO) are locked up until the network elects 21 «block producers» (the equivalent of miners for the new network), and as that still hasn't happened, currently no one can start using EOS just yet.

As it stands, the blockchain will go live if 15 percent of all tokens – an equivalent of 150 million – are «staked» in a vote on block producer candidates. Staking tokens allows EOS holders to vote for up to 30 block producers – the groups in charge of verifying transactions – and votes are weighted by how many tokens are staked.

Headphones Maker Monster Is Quietly Planning A $300 Million ICO


Monster Products, Inc. has been losing money for years, but a $300 million initial coin offering (ICO) may be what it takes to turn the company around.

Founded in 1978, Monster, which makes electronic accessories such as headphones and Bluetooth speakers, has primarily relied on retailers to distribute its goods up to now. Business issues aside, though, Monster doesn't appear to be cutting back on its ambitions for making a change.

According to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Monster is planning to run one of the biggest ICOs of all time by selling «monster money tokens» to build the «Monster Money Network,» a new e-commerce site for selling its products (and potentially those of other companies) online.

No Disney, No PayPal? SEC Charges ICO Founder Over False Statements


The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has charged a company and its president with securities fraud in connection with their efforts to raise funding via an initial coin offering (ICO).

Michael Stollery, also known as Michael Stollaire, has been accused alongside his firm Titanium Blockchain Infrastructure Services with violating the SEC's antifraud and registration provisions in connection with a multi-million dollar token sale. The agency accused Stollaire of fabricating information in claims that Titanium had relationships with companies like PayPal and Disney.

Officials with the U.S. securities regulator obtained an emergency asset freeze and the appointment of a receiver in relation to the token sale, which raised as much as $21 million, according to the SEC.

The focus on alleged misrepresentation echoes similar actions by the agency to combat fraud related to the use case, given that the SEC has accused Centra and its three co-founders of lying about their relationship with card network operators Visa and Mastercard.

Robert Cohen, the head of the SEC Enforcement Division's Cyber Unit, said in a statement:

«This ICO was based on a social media marketing blitz that allegedly deceived investors with purely fictional claims of business prospects. Having filed multiple cases involving allegedly fraudulent ICOs, we again encourage investors to be especially cautious when considering these as investments.»
According to statements, the complaint against Stollaire and Titanium was initially filed on May 22. Another company tied to Stollaire, EHI Internetwork and Systems Management Inc., was also named in the complaint.
