Bitcoin Price Watch: Yesterday saw Bitcoin (BTC) price fall to almost below $ 6,000. But what about today?

First, let’s recap the last month.

Bitcoin Price Watch: The Past Month

Mid-July was looking promising for the coin as it began a sudden bull-run which saw Bitcoin climb to a peak of around $ 8,450.

But typically reflective of this volatile marketplace, the highs did not last long and BTC has been on a steady downward climb since hitting the peak. Once August kicked in, it seemed any progress made in those impressive …

Pearlman receives PNG Lifetime Achievement Award

Donn Pearlman, left, is given the award plaque by PNG Executive Director Robert Brueggeman.

Congratulations to Donn Pearlman.

The Professional Numismatists Guild bestowed its Lifetime Achievement Award on him last night at its dinner in Philadelphia.

What a well-deserved honor it is.

I have worked with Donn in this field for many years, so I can personally attest to the veracity of the words PNG President Barry Stuppler used to describe Donn and his phenomenal accomplishments.

“Few individuals have brought the topic of coin collecting to the attention of more people among the general public than tonight’s winner.

“He probably ranks only behind B. Max Mehl and Q. David Bowers in this regard,” Stuppler said.

You might think this is hyperbole. It isn’t. I believe it.

Stuppler said of Donn, “His resume is so distinguished that about the only thing I can say about him where you won’t immediately know who he is, is that he once served on the ANA board of governors. This is great public service, but there is so much more to his half century of service to numismatics.

“He worked 25 years for WBBM News Radio 78 in Chicago. Among his many assignments were regular presentations on numismatic topics.

“He launched his own public relations firm after his radio career. He counts the best and brightest of numismatists among his many clients.

“He is the one who thought up the idea of offering a $ 10,000 reward for the missing fifth 1913 Liberty head nickel.

“The result was amazing. The nickel showed up after 41 years at the 2003 ANA convention in Baltimore in the hands of the Walton family, relatives of the last recorded owner.

“He makes his success look so easy. It isn’t. It takes hard work. No one works harder at his craft.

“He has written hundreds of articles for magazines and newspapers about numismatics. He wrote four books.

“He has been recognized by other organizations.

“The Numismatic Literary Guild bestowed its top award, the Clemy, on him in 1984.

“He was given the highest ANA Award, the Farran Zerbe, in 2015.

“Tonight, I want to say that we have saved the best award for last.

“Now it is my pleasure to present the PNG’s Lifetime Achievement Award to a man who has never been at a loss for words about numismatics, Donn Pearlman.”

As you can see, I am letting Barry’s words speak for themselves.

Putting together a record like Donn’s that extends well over half a century is truly humbling to consider. Again, congratulations.

But he is not the only one who has given much to organized numismatics.

PNG honored other outstanding individuals.

The Robert Friedberg Award for an outstanding book or other literature was presented to author Don C. Kelly for Obsolete Paper Money – A Guide With Prices, published by The Paper Money Institute, LLC, Oxford, Ohio, 2018.

The Sol Kaplan Award, which recognizes efforts and contributions in combating crimes against the numismatic community and is jointly presented by the PNG and the Lewis M. Reagan Foundation, was given to Richard Weaver of Delaware Valley Rare Coin in Broomall, Pa.

ICTA Executive Director Kathy McFadden received the Significant Contribution Award.

Anthony Terranova of New York received the Art Kagin Ambassador Award.

Charles “Charlie” Browne of New Hampshire, who passed away in May, was posthumously honored with the Abe Kosoff Founders Award.

That is quite a list of luminaries. Congratulations to all.

Buzz blogger Dave Harper won the Numismatic Literary Guild Award for Best Blog for the third time in 2017 . He is editor of the weekly newspaper “Numismatic News.”

The further standstill arrangements provided for by the agreements will commence on satisfaction of the relevant conditions precedent, which Wolf expects to take place within the next few days. Those arrangements include certain waivers of, and amendments to, the senior debt and bridge facility conditions for any non-compliance prior to or during the standstill period.

India Crypto Regulations Hopefully Finalized by End of 2018

India Crypto Regulations

India has been weighing its regulations on cryptocurrency for the past few months and it seems the government will finally come to a conclusion about blockchain and digital currencies by the end of 2018, Quartz India reports.

India Crypto Regulations

The Finance Ministry Panel in India is still evaluating how to treat blockchain and cryptocurrencies separately. The crypto ban in the country was first announced back in early April of this year, but the country’s regulators didn’t act on anything until July.

All of India’s crypto ban announcements have come by way of local …

Cannabis Retail Shops Coming to Ontario in 2019

Consumers in Ontario will have to wait until April 1, 2019 to buy legal cannabis in adult-use shops as the provincial government outlines its rollout of the drug distribution.

After weeks of speculation, on Monday (August 13) the Ontario government confirmed its plan for the sale of adult-use cannabis in the province through private retailers.

The recently elected Premier Doug Ford will scrap the system put in place by the previous Ontario administration, in favour of an open system with private retailers in mind. However the province will only have online-sales available for consumers after the legalization of cannabis on October 17.

“We will be ready to put in place a safe, legal system for cannabis retail that will protect consumers,” Minister of Finance Vic Fedeli said. The minister added added the government has no plans to be in the business of operating a network of cannabis shops in Ontario.

A report from Marijuana Business Daily indicated the Ontario system is expected to see up to 500 retail licenses by the spring of 2019.

The government announced the introduction of an approving seal for “legitimate retailers” carrying product from licensed producers (LPs) only.

This decision from the Ontario government represents yet another delay for cannabis consumers in the province to gain legal retail options to purchase the drug.

Following the approval of Bill C-45 in the House of Commons and the Senate, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed the enactment of the bill was set in October, to accommodate the needs from the provinces to properly set up their models.

Municipalities in Ontario will be given what the provincial government is calling a “one-time window” to decide whether or not they will allow retail shops of recreational cannabis.

The province announced retailer hopefuls will have to follow a set of new mandates in order to be approved.

“Ontario will begin to consult on a number of rules all retailers will be mandated to follow including set hours of operation and staff training,” the province said.

This process will include conversations with Ontario municipalities, Indigenous communities, law enforcement, public health advocates, businesses and consumer groups as well as fellow province representatives.

Investor takeaway

Several cannabis companies have expressed interest in the retail landscape particularly with the province of Ontario. It will be key for investors to follow the performance of companies with retail aspirations during Tuesday’s (August 14) trading session.

One recent case of a cannabis company making a specific purchase for an entry into the retail space was Canopy Growth (TSX:WEED; NYSE:CGC) acquiring Hiku Brands (CSE:HIKU).

On Monday the Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences Index ETF (TSX:HMMJ), which holds close to 40 cannabis stocks, closed the day with a 3.41 percent decline and a price of C$ 15.28.

ICOs Break New Records: More than $12 Billion Raised in 2018

ICOs raised

Multiple reports this year have concluded that ICOs raised more money in 2018 than all of the ICOs launched during the 2017 bull market. A recent study from Autonomous Research states “Through June of 2018, we saw $ 12 billion of funding flow through into token offerings.”

The research firm goes on to suggest its estimates are likely conservative, explaining “Our numbers track only those ICOs with $ 1 million or more raised, so the numbers could be slightly higher…”

The Year So Far: Ivanhoe Looks Busy

Robert Friedland’s Ivanhoe Mines (TSX:IVN) has released its financial results for Q2 2018 as it powers its three major projects through to production.

In its Monday (August 13) release, the company also exhaustively details everything it’s been up to in the first half of the year, from the release of its inaugural sustainability report, to the announcement of a deal with China’s CITIC (HKEX:0267) and a constant stream of development updates.

Looking at the numbers, the company had a total comprehensive loss of US$ 38 million for Q2 compared to a loss of US$ 11.4 million for the same quarter of 2017. Ivanhoe explains that this was primarily due to a 16-percent weakening of the South African rand between the two periods.

A loss on paper says little, however, as over the quarter the arrangement with CITIC has led to over US$ 800 million in investments in Ivanhoe’s three African projects — the Kipushi zinc-copper project and the Kamoa-Kakula copper project in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and the Platreef platinum-group metals project in South Africa.

“Finance income for the three months ending June 30, 2018, amounted to US$ 10.9 million, and was US$ 1.7 million more than for the same period in 2017 (US$ 9.2 million). The increase mainly was due to interest earned on loans to the Kamoa Holding joint venture to fund operations that amounted to US$ 9.7 million in 2018, as the accumulated loan balance increased,” the company said.

Over Q2, the company spent US$ 2.8 million on exploration, with almost all going towards its Western Foreland licenses in the DRC. While exploration expenses are down year-on-year by over 70 percent, that’s mainly because the three major projects are so advanced they no longer require exploration.

“In Q2 2017, US$ 9.5 million of the total US$ 9.6 million exploration and project expenditure related to the Kipushi Project,” said the company — revealing that in 2018 the Western Foreland licenses will receive a huge increase in funding overall.

The Western Foreland licenses, where the company completed 6,857 meters of drilling in Q2, are to the west of the Kamoa-Kakula project and target high-grade copper trends “emanating from Kamoa North.” Drilling is also allowing the company to detail the characteristics of the Makoko area.

“In September, Ivanhoe expects to be in a position to provide an important update on its Makoko and Kamoa North exploration programs,” the company stated.

The arrangement with China’s CITIC, announced in June, will see C$ 723 million injected into the major projects, while anti-dilution rights by Zijin Mining (HKEX:2899), which holds a stake in Ivanhoe, will see another C$ 78 million go towards the projects.

The deal makes Beijing-headquartered CITIC the Canadian company’s largest single shareholder, with Friedland now in second place with a 17-percent stake. Friedland will also become a co-chairman alongside a CITIC-appointed co-chairman.

The Platreef project has seen progress with the sinking of shaft 1 to 750 meters with a planned final depth of 982 meters. The target orebody is located 783 meters below the surface and is projected to be reached in Q3. Meanwhile, surface work on shaft 2 at the platinumpalladiumnickel-copper-gold project is continuing.

The copper-zinc Kipushi project is powering ahead also, with an improved mineral resource estimate released at the end of July that will enhance the mineral resources available for the definitive feasibility study due to be released at the end of this year or the beginning of 2019.
