Ethereum Classic Rallies Ahead of Coinbase Support, Coinbase Acquires Distributed Systems, South Korea to Budget Nearly $1 Billion for Blockchain and AI Investment in 2019, Thailand Approves 7 Crypto Businesses and ZB.com to Open Malta Office

Ethereum Classic (ETC) has seen nearly 16 percent growth in the past 24 hours, according to data from CoinMarketCap, as it gears up to see support on crypto exchange giant Coinbase later today. Coinbase announced, via Twitter, that Ethereum Classic, at press time trading at $14.00 USD, will be available to buy, sell and store as of 5PM PT today.

Coinbase has also recently acquired Distributed Systems, Inc., a San Francisco-based startup working on “decentralized identity solutions”, according to a blog post yesterday. The post was written by Coinbase Identity Project Manager B Byrne, who highlighted the importance of identity and privacy and their association with blockchain technology.

“We believe decentralized identity systems represent a transformative shift in our relationship with technology, and we can’t wait to work on these opportunities together at Coinbase.”

South Korea’s Ministry of Economy and Finance published their ‘Growth Through Innovation’ budget plan on Tuesday, which will see 5 trillion won ($4.4 billion USD) invested in eight sectors in 2019. One of these sectors is blockchain and AI, which will see an investment of 1040 won ($918 million) in 2019, up from 579.9 billion won ($511 million) in 2018.

In a statement today, Thailand’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced approval of seven digital asset applicants that can operate legally as crypto businesses. The statement lists the following exchanges that have been approved: Bitcoin Company Ltd. (BX), Bitkub, Cash2Coins, TDAX and Coin Asset Co. The statement also lists two crypto dealers: Coins TH Co, Ltd. and Digital Coin Co, Ltd.

ZB.com, the fifth largest crypto exchange by trading volume according to CoinMarketCap, has announced plans to open an office in Malta, according to CCN Joining the likes of Binance and OKEx, ZB.com’s co-founder Jimmy Zhao explained the appeal of Malta:

"Malta is perhaps the world’s most progressive and forward-thinking nation in DLT, crypto, and fintech, and we are very excited to be part of the Blockchain Island. We are confident we will be able to announce our live operations soon."

Market Recovers Modestly, LINE Announces $10 Million Token Venture Fund and Lists TRON, Venezuela to Make PTR Official Unit of Account and South Korea No Longer Classifies Crypto as Venture Enterprise

The crypto market has seen a bit of a recovery since yesterday, with the total market capitalization having increased $14 billion USD to $205 billion USD at press time. Just about every coin listed in the top 100 by market capitalization on CoinMarketCap is in the green with Bitcoin (BTC) currently trading at $6362 USD and accounting for 53.5 percent market dominance.

Japan’s LINE Corporation announced today the establishment, through its subsidiary, of a corporate token venture fund called ‘Unblock Ventures’. The fund has a capital commitment of $10 million USD which aims to “boost the development and adoption of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology”.

Additionally, LINE’s recently-launched crypto exchange platform, BITBOX, announced the listing of TRX, the native token of the TRON platform . According to the release, TRX is the first coin to be approved by BITBOX’s open-listing committee. To celebrate the listing, BITBOX will airdrop 10 million TRON tokens to users until August 22.

ABC International reports that Venezuela will use their oil-backed cryptocurrency, Petro (PTR), as an official unit of account. In a televised speech, president Nicolás Maduro said that the state oil company, Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), would begin using Petro as a unit of account, beginning on August 20. Maduro reportedly said the change would mean a "new salary system and a new pricing system for goods and services anchored to petro". ABC International quotes Maduro on the intended effect of this change:

"This will mean a substantial improvement in the income of the workers" and will make "the maximum retail price to reappear.”

South Korea’s Ministry of SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) and Startups issued a press release on Monday stating that crypto exchanges would no longer be legislated as venture businesses. A rough translation cites problems resulting from speculation and the resulting volatility as impetus for the change in classification, but makes clear that the ministry does not intend to regulate the sector:

“The Small and Medium-Sized Venture Business Department has no intention to regulate the cryptocurrency transactions and ICOs, but as the social

Fineqia ($FNQ.CN) Announces #Blockchain and #Cryptocurrency Investment Subsidiary in Malta


Fineqia ($FNQ.CN) Announces #Blockchain and #Cryptocurrency Investment Subsidiary in Malta



LONDON - August 15, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Fineqia International Inc. (the "Company" or "Fineqia") (CSE: FNQ.CN) (OTC: FNQQF) (Frankfurt: FNQA) is pleased to announce the set-up of a subsidiary company in Malta via which it will own its investment shareholdings.


Fineqia Investments Limited has been established in Malta to hold the Company's growing portfolio of blockchain, fintech and cryptocurrency technology companies worldwide such as Estonian company Black Insurance, Malta-based IXL PremFina Ltd and the UK's Nivaura Ltd. The investments are adjunct to the Company's core business of placing debt and equity securities.

Malta, a European island country located close to Italy, was selected for its advanced regulatory framework that qualifies and regulates blockchain and cryptocurrency companies. Malta also benefits from its membership in the European Union (EU), whereby EU financial directives facilitate regulated business activities across its 28-member states.

"Malta ticks a lot of boxes as a pioneering crypto-friendly regime," said CEO Bundeep Singh Rangar. "Choosing a jurisdiction where the legal and regulatory framework is in sync with emerging technologies and new financial instruments is as important as selecting sound investment opportunities in the first place."

Malta, which uses English as one of its official languages, passed three laws this summer that signal ambitious changes to the country's legal system overseeing cryptocurrency-related businesses. The Malta Digital Innovation Authority Act (MDIA Act) established the Malta Digital Innovation Authority, which focuses on governance arrangements and certifies Distributed Ledged Technology (DLT) platforms for credibility and legal certainty to users.
The Innovative Technology Arrangement and Services Act (ITAS Act) deals with DLT arrangements and certifications of DLT platforms. It addresses the setting up of exchanges and other cryptocurrency related businesses such as identity verification services and electronic wallet providers. The Virtual Financial Assets Act (VFA Act) establishes the regulatory regime governing such companies as well as Initial Coin Offerings.

About Fineqia International Inc.
Fineqia International is a listed entity in the Canada (CSE: FNQ), US (OTC: FNQQF) and Europe (Frankfurt: FNQA). Fineqia International outlines the Company's corporate governance, culture, processes and relations by which the Company and its subsidiaries are controlled, directed and governed.
