Stevie Jobs’ widow invested millions in the ICO Telegram
Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of Steve Jobs, invested millions in the first pre-sale of Gram tokens.
Laurene Powell Jobs invested, among others, in the first round of pre-sales. Laurene Powell Jobs invested a minimum of $5 million in the ICO Telegram, BlockTV reports. The pre-sale of the tokens did not allow for an investment of less than five million dollars.
Powell would thus be among 39 American investors whose investment in ICO Telegram was not registered by Telegram. The SEC explains that less than forty investors bought a total of one billion Gram tokens at a price below one dollar. In total, 171 people and organisations from all over the world (2.9 billion tokens) decided to buy Telegram’s tokens.
The widow inherited a fortune after the death of her husband, the famous billionaire, Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, which is over $20 billion. Powell is currently active in community organizations as a founder of the Emerson Collective, and also runs a philanthropic activity and the “Trust” fund.
What about the Telegram?
The Telegram crypto and TON blockchain came under the magnifying glass of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in October 2019.
The SEC claims that the ICO Telegram, which raised $1.7 billion to develop the project, was illegal. Since then, the case has been going on, and we still don’t know when the Gram Token will be in circulation and on investors’ portfolios. This was to happen by the end of October 2019.
The Commission announced at the end of last year that it had suspended the offer of Telegram tokens “in order to prevent a flood of digital tokens into the US market whose sale was illegal.
On 6 January, the project’s creators published a note in which they assure that they are continuously working to launch the Telegram Open Network (TON) platform.
We are waiting for the developments and will keep you informed about the development of the project. Let’s remember that ICO Telegrams, starting from January 2018, became the largest collection for the development of the blockchain platform.
The SEC is not sympathetic to cryptocurrencies. Recently, bitcoin ETFs, among others, have been rejected once again
