Hi xxx,

ICONOMI, the company behind the ICN token, is moving to a more traditional legal structure that will eliminate ICN in favor of tokenized company shares that will be called “eICN.” As part of this transition, all ICN holders must convert their ICN to either eICN or ETH by December 31 2018. Since Kraken will not be participating in the conversion process we will delist ICN.

ICN will be delisted according to the following schedule:

ICN Deposits Disabled: October 29 2018 at 11:59 pm UTC
ICN Trading Disabled: October 31 2018 at 11:59 pm UTC
ICN Withdrawals Disabled: November 30 2018 at 11:59 pm UTC

Delisting ICN does not constitute any judgment by Kraken against the suitability of eICN as an investment, or against ICONOMI the company or platform. We are delisting because we are not participating in the conversion process.

What are the options for clients holding ICN?

Trade ICN for ETH or BTC on Kraken (act by October 29)
If you do not want to convert your ICN through the official process you can immediately trade it for ETH or BTC on Kraken. To trade you must deposit your ICN no later than October 29 2018 by 11:59 pm UTC and complete all trades no later than October 31 2018 by 11:59 pm UTC. The current exchange rates on Kraken are approximately:

ICN/ETH = 0.0018 (as of October 22)
ICN/BTC = 0.000057 (as of October 22)

Convert ICN to eICN (act by November 30)
Withdraw your ICN as soon as possible (no later than the November 30 withdrawal deadline). On November 1 2018, ICONOMI plans to make an investor interface available for converting ICN to eICN (check the project website and blog after November 1 for details). The conversion deadline is December 31 2018 (you will likely be able to convert after this time but there may be additional fees). The rate for converting ICN to eICN shares has not yet been determined, but the value of one eICN share will be set to a value of one Swiss Franc (CHF) and the ICN/eICN conversion rate will be set by determining an ICN/CHF rate (this rate will be published at a later date). It is not yet known when investors will receive their eICN, but the tokenization of shares will begin in Q1 2019. Conversion to eICN requires that your account on the ICONOMI platform be verified to Tier 2 (and there may be further requirements – it will be similar to opening a bank account). Residents of the US and Canada are currently not eligible to convert to eICN (if you reside in the US or Canada and are interested in conversion, contact ICONOMI at eicn.support@iconomi.com).

Convert ICN to ETH (act by November 30)
Withdraw your ICN as soon as possible (no later than the November 30 withdrawal deadline). On November 1 2018, ICONOMI plans to make a client interface available for converting ICN to ETH (check the project website and blog after November 1 for details). The conversion deadline is December 31 2018 (you will likely be able to convert after this time but the conversion rate may be lower). The rate for converting ICN to ETH is 1 ICN = 0.0019 ETH (valid until December 31 2018). Conversion to ETH does not require that your account on the ICONOMI platform be verified to Tier 2 and there is no restriction against residents of the US or Canada. It is not yet known when investors will receive the converted ETH.

These three options are not all-or-nothing – you can trade part of your ICN on Kraken, convert part to ETH through ICONOMI and convert part to eICN through ICONOMI.

Will any exchanges list eICN for trading?
Kraken has no plan to support eICN trading and we are not aware of any exchange that has announced support.

Questions?
If you have any questions about the ICN conversion process, please make use of the information and support provided by ICONOMI. Kraken support agents will likely not be able to provide any information beyond what is already stated in this email (but they can of course help with any questions you have about trading ICN on Kraken).

Dear valued customers,

To create a robust trading environment and offer the best trading experience to our users, we will delist several TRADING PAIRS with weak liquidity and trading volume according to the OKEx Token Delisting / Hiding Guideline. The affected tokens and trading pairs are as follows:

https://support.okex.com/hc/en-us/artic ... PcBrcrZoJ0

Execution time: we will delist the above trading pairs at 06:00 Oct 31, 2018 (Central European TIme). Users should cancel their orders of the affected pairs from our platform. If your order is not canceled in time, the order will be canceled by the system and your asset will be credited to your trading account.

Please note that only the TRADING PAIRS with weak liquidity and trading volume, but NOT THE TOKENS themselves, will be delisted. Other satisfactory trading pairs can still be traded normally.

We will strictly monitor all listed projects and implement the delisting / hiding mechanism for substandard projects when necessary. Protecting the interest of our users is always the essence of our service. We appreciate your understanding, support, and cooperation in this case.

Please be reminded that trading digital assets involves significant risk and make sure you fully understand the mechanism and risk involved. You should always consider your investment ability and risk tolerance before entering the market.

Breaking: Coinbase confirms going public with $8 billion valuation; provides revenue breakdown

On October 26, Coinbase confirmed that the company is raising an Initial Public Offering of $500 million at a valuation of $8 billion. The news, which has been doing rounds for the past 24 hours, was finally confirmed by Ran NeuNer, when he elucidated the financial breakdown of the IPO and provided more information on Coinbase’s new move.

The valuation is predicted to be in the range of $7.2 – $8 billion, with an initial public investment of $500 million. The IPO will take place in two rounds, comprising of preferred equity and common stock. According to sources close to Coinbase, who are not part of the team right now, the IPO is predicted to beat all market predictions.

As of now, Coinbase, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in terms of users, has 25 million registered users in its fold. There is $7 million worth of cryptocurrencies, with almost 600,000 active traders on the platform every single day. Sources have also stated that Coinbase is available in over 32 countries, with a lion’s share of 75% of the total market.

CryptoTrader also spoke about the all-important revenue numbers of Coinbase that led up to the IPO. Reports show that the cryptocurrency exchange earned $90 million in the last quarter, with the record being held by the 4th quarter of 2017. Q4 for Coinbase raised an astronomical amount of $450 million following the cryptocurrency boom, which saw the price of Bitcoin [BTC] break the $19,000 barrier.

Next, the reports talked about the revenue sources of Coinbase. It stated that 80% of the total Coinbase revenue was generated by consumers, and 15 percent was from Coinbase Pro, which is the institutional investor aspect of Coinbase. The remaining 5% of the revenue has come from other miscellaneous sources, stated the reports.

Ran NeuNer also teased users and investors by stating that Coinbase is rumored to start a custodian solution, with many more projects in its developmental pipeline. NeuNer also spoke to Adam Draper, one of the initial investors in Coinbase, who has put in $10 million into Coinbase’s latest IPO.

Draper was of the opinion that Coinbase CEO, Brian Armstrong, was going to make Coinbase the biggest company on the planet, because of the mantra “at some point in time, the entire world has to be on one financial infrastructure, and Coinbase will be that exact platform”.

Draper also stated that there was a demand to exit the market right now but he would rather stay in and invest more. He further added:

“I honestly believe Coinbase will be one of the first ten companies to reach trillion dollar valuation.”

Another step towards Mainstream Bakkt sets Dec 12 Launch Date

The owner of the New York Stock Exchange has announce to launch the digital asset platform for crypto in partnership with Microsoft and Starbucks on December 12, 2018.
Hopefully this will be the first step towards the mainstream adoption of Bitcoin (BTC) and it could be the biggest news in the current bear market.

What is BAKKT?

BAKKT is a project from the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE). It is the parent company of New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and many other companies as well.
The aim of the project is to create the infrastructure necessary for institutional investors to enter in Bitcoin ecosystem and to allow them to invest in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. The other main focus of the project is to encourage the real adoption of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies by allowing users to spend them in the real world. This includes a physically settled futures market as well as creating the tools necessary for consumers and merchants to use Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

Step towards Mainstream :

Bakkt marks the first move to the mainstream adoption into the cryptocurrency markets, by a major US based stock exchange, and may be possible that other exchanges will follow it. Transparency with regulators is key to gaining institutional investment and mass adoption. Looking to see more compliant crypto assets!

In December of last year, the Chicago Board Operations Exchange (CBOE) and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) launched Bitcoin futures.

Last April, Nasdaq’s CEO also made bullish comments about the future of blockchain and cryptocurrency by saying that said that Nasdaq may launch Bitcoin Trading Exchange.
The success of Bakkt’s platform will likely dictate the decisions of other retail stock exchanges, like Nasdaq and other stock exchanges.

SEC Charges EtherDelta Founder With Operating an Unregistered Exchange

The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced settled charges against Zachary Coburn, the founder of EtherDelta, a digital "token" trading platform. This is the SEC's first enforcement action based on findings that such a platform operated as an unregistered national securities exchange.

According to the SEC's order, EtherDelta is an online platform for secondary market trading of ERC20 tokens, a type of blockchain-based token commonly issued in Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). The order found that Coburn caused EtherDelta to operate as an unregistered national securities exchange.

EtherDelta provided a marketplace for bringing together buyers and sellers for digital asset securities through the combined use of an order book, a website that displayed orders, and a “smart contract” run on the Ethereum blockchain. EtherDelta's smart contract was coded to validate the order messages, confirm the terms and conditions of orders, execute paired orders, and direct the distributed ledger to be updated to reflect a trade.

Over an 18-month period, EtherDelta's users executed more than 3.6 million orders for ERC20 tokens, including tokens that are securities under the federal securities laws. Almost all of the orders placed through EtherDelta's platform were traded after the Commission issued its 2017 DAO Report, which concluded that certain digital assets, such as DAO tokens, were securities and that platforms that offered trading of these digital asset securities would be subject to the SEC's requirement that exchanges register or operate pursuant to an exemption. EtherDelta offered trading of various digital asset securities and failed to register as an exchange or operate pursuant to an exemption.

"EtherDelta had both the user interface and underlying functionality of an online national securities exchange and was required to register with the SEC or qualify for an exemption," said Stephanie Avakian, Co-Director of the SEC's Enforcement Division.

"We are witnessing a time of significant innovation in the securities markets with the use and application of distributed ledger technology," said Steven Peikin, Co-Director of the SEC's Enforcement Division. "But to protect investors, this innovation necessitates the SEC's thoughtful oversight of digital markets and enforcement of existing laws."

The SEC has previously brought enforcement actions relating to unregistered broker-dealers and unregistered ICOs, including some of the tokens traded on EtherDelta.

Without admitting or denying the findings, Coburn consented to the order and agreed to pay $300,000 in disgorgement plus $13,000 in prejudgment interest and a $75,000 penalty. The Commission's order recognizes Coburn's cooperation, which the Commission considered in determining not to impose a greater penalty.

The SEC's investigation, which is continuing, is being conducted by Daphna A. Waxman of the Division's Cyber Unit and Alison R. Levine and Jorge G. Tenreiro of the New York Regional Office. The case is being supervised by Robert A. Cohen, Cyber Unit Chief.

Launch update + reader FAQs

Bakkt Warehouse to feature warm & cold wallet insurance

As we speed into the US holiday season and toward year-end, there’s no shortage of progress at Bakkt. Our efforts over the last few weeks have resulted in important new features to support our offering, so I wanted to provide an update on what’s in flight.

First, our team is hard at work with customer onboarding and securing regulatory approvals. We’re focused on helping participants prepare for our launch, and we appreciate the tremendous collaboration among our clearing firms and customers.

On the regulatory front, we continue to work closely with the CFTC as they conduct their thorough review of the Bakkt™ Bitcoin Daily Futures contract and the Bakkt Warehouse. These products represent a critical shift in the evolution of crypto markets toward more accessible, useful, and regulated instruments.

The level of collaboration at the exchange, customer, and regulatory levels are unprecedented in terms of engagement and effort in the institutional cryptocurrency markets. We are also fortunate to now have Adam White on board as our COO as we work through our launch and establish our roadmap for the year ahead.

Given the volume of interest in Bakkt and work required to get all of the pieces in place, we will now be targeting January 24, 2019 for our launch to ensure that our participants are ready to trade on Day 1. As is often true with product launches, there are new processes, risks and mitigants to test and re-test, and in the case of crypto, a new asset class to which these resources are being applied. So it makes sense to adjust our timeline as we work with the industry toward launch.

Second, as we collaborate to help develop this asset class, we are taking opportunities in our start-up phase to expand our offering. We’ll share more about some of these new features in the coming weeks but as a start, I’m pleased to announce that we have insurance for bitcoin in cold storage and are in the process of securing insurance for the warm wallet within the Bakkt Warehouse architecture. We are focused on every aspect of delivering an institutional grade crypto warehouse solution and believe this is a significant step in building confidence in this asset class.

Finally, some of our best feedback comes in the form of questions, so I wanted to share a selection of those we’ve heard most often, and our responses:

Question: Why are you starting with bitcoin, and will you add other digital currencies?

Answer: Bitcoin today accounts for over half of total crypto market capitalization and has been deemed to be a commodity, and its derivatives are regulated in the US by the CFTC. As the world’s most liquid and widely distributed cryptocurrency, and where we’ve seen the most customer demand, bitcoin’s profile creates a liquid product on which to build a futures contract. We’ll consider additional contracts as the landscape evolves and as we receive additional customer feedback about what they want and need.

Question: How is the price of bitcoin going to be established?

Answer: Given the transparency and regulation of the futures markets, the futures price in a one-day physically settled bitcoin contract will serve as a price discovery contract for the market. There is no reliance on cash platforms for settlement prices for pricing the daily bitcoin futures contract.

Question: When will trading and warehousing begin?

Answer: We expect the contract to launch on January 24, 2019, subject to regulatory approval. We’ll continue to update you on our progress and milestones.

Question: Is Bakkt hiring?

Answer: Yes, inquiries may be sent to info@bakkt.com. We are focused on building a nimble, entrepreneurial team with a focus on serving our customers and delivering results. Key success factors in our culture include collaboration, problem solving, communication, integrity, and professionalism and leadership.

Thank you for your continued interest and feedback as we build out Bakkt. As we talk with those in this space, we are motivated by the opportunity to help shape the future of digital currency. We look forward to updating you on our progress in coming weeks.

OKEx continues to eliminate non-performing trading pairs

OKEx, a popular cryptocurrency exchange has once again scaled down non-performing trading pairs on its platform. The delisting of the trading pairs comes after just a month when the exchange performed a similar operation.

The current operation will see 38 non-performing trading pairs rendered inactive and non-existent. The exchange indicated that the delisting was triggered by low liquidity and volume exhibited by the affected tokens.

“To create a robust trading environment and offer the best trading experience to our users, we will delist several trading pairs with weak liquidity and trading volume,” noted OKEx through its website.

The affected tokens include Micromoney (AMM), ATLANT (ATL), AVENTUS (AVT), among others with the most affected trading pairs being those involving Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Tether (USDT).

Some of the delisted tokens, e.g Bread (BRD), recorded a market capitalization of more than 192 million U.S dollars according to coinmarketcap. By then, BRD was exchanging hands at 3 U.S dollars. Unfortunately, the token is exchanging hands at around 0.21 U.S dollars with a market capitalization of approximately 19 million U.S dollars.

Although withdrawal orders for the delisted tokens will officially be deactivated on December 14:

“Users should cancel their orders of the affected pairs” from the exchange. Otherwise, “the order will be canceled by the system and your asset will be credited to your trading account.”

OKEx also noted that it will ‘strictly monitor all listed projects’ and depending on how they behave on its platform, they may be delisted.

On October this year, OKEx delisted another set of 30 non-performing trading pairs citing low trading volumes and liquidity.

OKEx is not the only cryptocurrency exchange scaling down on non-performing trading pairs seeing that Binance and Bittrex have recently delisted a varying number of non-performing trading pairs.

Bitfinex and Ethfinex List 4 Stablecoins

The Bitfinex and Ethfinex cryptocurrency exchanges have listed four new stablecoins: Gemini dollar GUSD, -0.93%, True USD TUSD, -0.23%, USD Coin USDC, -0.39% and Dai DAI, 0.28%.

The four dollar-pegged stablecoins will of course be available in addition to the previously available Tether USDT, 0.04% and USDT. Tether Ltd, the issuer of USDT, has close ties to Bitfinex as the two entities share several top executives.

Bitfinex recently announced that it will no longer guarantee a 1:1 conversion between USDT and USD, but has instead opened markets between USDT and fiat currencies, allowing the market price of USDT to be established through trading. Tether, on the other hand, has re-instated direct redemptions of USDT for USD through its platform, although the minimum amount for redemption is 100,000 USDT.

USDT continues its dominance

USDT, which was the only stablecoin on the market for much of its existence, has been the centre of controversy for quite some time now, with parts of the cryptocurrency community questioning whether each USDT in circulation is actually backed by fiat reserves and whether USDT tokens were strategically issued to defend key price levels of cryptocurrencies. Even though Tether has made several attempts to clear its name, uncertainty continues to linger and this has opened the door for a new wave of stablecoins.

Nevertheless, USDT continues to be the dominant force in the stablecoin sector and has more trading volume and more coins in circulation than all of its competitors combined.
