Blockchain anti-counterfeit solution LuxTag secures 89% of funding target
pitchIN, a Malaysian licensed equity crowdfunding operator, currently holding an equity crowdfunding for blockchain-powered anti-counterfeit solution LuxTag, announced the campaign has secured 50% of the minimum target.
“LuxTag is running a truly global equity crowdfuding (ECF) campaign; their acceptance of Bitcoin and XEM shows they are a firm extending the opportunity across borders. We believe this campaign sets a precedent for other ECF issuers around the world.”
– Sam Shafie, CEO of pitchIN
Last week, one-third of the minimum was raised, it is now at slightly over half
As reported last week, along with LuxTag, pitchIN sought and obtained approval from the Securities Commission Malaysia for the ECF campaign to accept crypto tokens XEM and BTC.
The ECF campaign seeks to raise up to Malaysian ringgit (MYR) 2 million (approx. USD $480,000) with a minimum of MYR 800K. Contributions in Malaysian currency and crypto tokens in their MYR exchange-value are counted jointly.
The crypto tokens BTC and XEM are pledged as a non-monetary value trade-in. pitchIN considers the market value of the crypto tokens and assigns the equivalent number of LuxTag shares to the investors.
BTC and XEM contributions are restricted to angel investors and sophisticated investors, and the minimum contribution by any investor is set to MYR 6,400 (approx US$1,540 or 0.175 BTC). Investors are required to declare that they are not retail investors.

Last fall the Republican National Committee paid $900,000 for “data services” to a Delaware-registered limited liability corporation that had existed for only three weeks.The company receiving the money has no online presence and has not been used by other campaigns or committees. But there is one clue about the company, Howler Insights LLC, in paperwork the RNC filed with the Federal Election Commission. Howler’s Arlington, Virginia, address and suite number are the same as a conservative data firm whose work for the RNC was placed on hold nearly three years ago after a massive data breach.

Jan 16, 2020 at 13:53 // News Expectantly, the bulls have rallied above $148 and $157 to reach $170. However, the bulls fail to maintain the price at the resistance zone because of insufficient buyers at the upper price level. Initially, the price rally was into the previous price range of $160 and $200. Unfortunately, the coin may retrace below $160, and if it does, the market will revert to $140 low. In other words, the bears are likely to erase all the bullish gains. Conversely, if the $160 support holds, the price will rise and retest the $170 and reach out to other previous highs. Ethereum Indicator Analysis The pair has moved over the overbought area of the daily stochastic. The bands are over 80% range signifying that price is in a bullish move.

Bitcoin made an impressive move to be upside once again yesterday but we saw that it was short-lived and the price started to crash soon after. We are now seeing BTC/USD struggling to break past the 61.8% fib level at $7,162 but it seems to be having a really hard time doing that and if the price keeps on trading below this level then the probability of a fall below $7,000 or eventually lower than that would increase drastically. However, at this point a lot of traders are expecting the price to decline further because there is obvious weakness in the price action and it tells me that maybe we could see another dead cat bounce to the upside and that would also be the perfect liquidity hunt that would shake out a lot more retail bears once again and trap in more retail bulls that are hoping for the price to shoot up towards $8,000 and higher.Throughout the trading history of Bitcoin we have seen such pumps and we have seen a lot of retail traders being shaken out…Dec 27, 2019

But since BTC/USD is traded 24/7, new investors may be wondering: is there a difference between investing on a particular day of the week? Figure 1. Crypto market data, 1-day performance. Source: Coin360The basis of a difference in a day of a week returns comes from traditional stock markets. It has been shown that stock returns on Mondays are, on average, negative. This is called the Weekend Effect. One explanation is that the effects on a particular stock will only be felt on Monday since the market is closed during the weekend. However, the cryptocurrency market is always open: Could we expect the same behavior on Mondays for Bitcoin?
