T-Mobile and Sprint’s merger deal could close in October

Uncategorized September 22, 2017

t-mobile-sprint-merger-ideal-classifieds T-Mobile and Sprint’s merger talks after a long on-again, off-again may be nearing a conclusion. According to Reuters reports that the two companies are now “close” to reach “tentative terms” on merger and could announce a deal by the end of October. The merger would reportedly give T-Mobile’s owner, Deutsche Telekom, a majority stake in the merged company, while Sprint’s owner, SoftBank, would have somewhere between 40 and 50 percent. T-Mobile CEO John Legere would lead the combined company, according to Reuters. Merger terms are very different from what SoftBank had envisioned when it first proposed a merger several years ago.

Bitcoin Drops as China bans cryptocurrency offerings

Uncategorized September 5, 2017



After a a series of investigations, on Monday The People’s Bank of China banned initial coin offerings — raising funds by launching new digital tokens. There was no mention of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or its rival Ethereum, but the announcement sent stocks sliding anyway.

The burgeoning market for cryptocurrencies, which has grown very rapidly that one bitcoin was worth more than an ounce of gold in March, has seen digital currency entrepreneurs flocking to ICOs to create and sell digital tokens to investors, who include many celebs.

Still, regulators are not taking to ICOs well. The practice, which Bloomberg said netted $1.6 billion in the last year, has prompted security concerns from the US Securities and Exchange Commission. The Commission released advisories in July and August saying some ICOs should be regulated like other securities, warning of risks that come with investing in ICOs, including scams.

ICOs are a form of “unauthorised and illegal public financing,” the People’s Bank of China said in a statement, adding that ICOs have “seriously disrupted economic and financial order” in China.

The People’s Bank said the country has banned all sales and currency conversions involving digital tokens, and prohibited all financial institutions and non-bank payment organisations from offering any services to ICOs.
