Equity Crowdfunding Now Open To ALL In The USA, Not Just The Rich

SEC Adopts Rules to Permit Crowdfunding

Proposes Amendments to Existing Rules to Facilitate Intrastate and Regional Securities Offerings

Washington D.C., Oct. 30, 2015 
The Securities and Exchange Commission today adopted final rules to permit companies to offer and sell securities through crowdfunding.  The Commission also voted to propose amendments to existing Securities Act rules to facilitate intrastate and regional securities offerings.  The new rules and proposed amendments are designed to assist smaller companies with capital formation and provide investors with additional protections.
Crowdfunding is an evolving method of raising capital that has been used to raise funds through the Internet for a variety of projects.  Title III of the JOBS Act created a federal exemption under the securities laws so that this type of funding method can be used to offer and sell securities.  
“There is a great deal of enthusiasm in the marketplace for crowdfunding, and I believe these rules and proposed amendments provide smaller companies with innovative ways to raise capital and give investors the protections they need,” said SEC Chair Mary Jo White. “With these rules, the Commission has completed all of the major rulemaking mandated under the JOBS Act.”
The final rules, Regulation Crowdfunding, permit individuals to invest in securities-based crowdfunding transactions subject to certain investment limits.  The rules also limit the amount of money an issuer can raise using the crowdfunding exemption, impose disclosure requirements on issuers for certain information about their business and securities offering, and create a regulatory framework for the broker-dealers and funding portals that facilitate the crowdfunding transactions. 
The new crowdfunding rules and forms will be effective 180 days after they are published in the Federal Register. The forms enabling funding portals to register with the Commission will be effective Jan. 29, 2016. 
The Commission also proposed amendments to existing Securities Act Rule 147 to modernize the rule for intrastate offerings to further facilitate capital formation, including through intrastate crowdfunding provisions.  The proposal also would amend Securities Act Rule 504 to increase the aggregate amount of money that may be offered and sold pursuant to the rule from $1 million to $5 million and apply bad actor disqualifications to Rule 504 offerings to provide additional investor protection.
The SEC is seeking public comment on the proposed rule amendments for a 60-day period following their publication in the Federal Register.

Regulation Crowdfunding
SEC Open Meeting
Oct. 30, 2015
The Securities and Exchange Commission will consider whether to adopt final rules that would allow the offer and sale of securities through crowdfunding.  The recommended rules would give small businesses an additional avenue to raise capital and provide investors with important protections.  If adopted, this would complete the Commission’s major rulemaking mandated under the JOBS Act.
Highlights of the Recommended Final Rules
The recommended rules would, among other things, enable individuals to purchase securities in crowdfunding offerings subject to certain limits, require companies to disclose certain information about their business and securities offering, and create a regulatory framework for the intermediaries facilitating crowdfunding transactions.  More specifically, the recommended rules would: 
  • Permit a company to raise a maximum aggregate amount of $1 million through crowdfunding offerings in a 12-month period;
  • Permit individual investors, over a 12-month period, to invest in the aggregate across all crowdfunding offerings up to:
    • If either their annual income or net worth is less than $100,000, than the greater of:
      • $2,000 or
      • 5 percent of the lesser of their annual income or net worth.
    • If both their annual income and net worth are equal to or more than $100,000, 10 percent of the lesser of their annual income or net worth; and 
  • During the 12-month period, the aggregate amount of securities sold to an investor through all crowdfunding offerings may not exceed $100,000.
Under the recommended rules, certain companies would not be eligible to use the exemption.  Ineligible companies would include non-U.S. companies, Exchange Act reporting companies, certain investment companies, companies that are subject to disqualification under Regulation Crowdfunding, companies that have failed to comply with the annual reporting requirements under Regulation Crowdfunding during the two years immediately preceding the filing of the offering statement, and companies that have no specific business plan or have indicated that their business plan is to engage in a merger or acquisition with an unidentified company or companies.
Securities purchased in a crowdfunding transaction generally could not be resold for one year.  Holders of these securities would not count toward the threshold that requires a company to register its securities under Exchange Act Section 12(g) if the company is current in its annual reporting obligations, retains the services of a registered transfer agent and has less than $25 million in total assets as of the end of its most recently completed fiscal year.
In addition, all transactions relying on the new rules would be required to take place through an SEC-registered intermediary, either a broker-dealer or a funding portal. 
Disclosure by Companies 
Companies that rely on the recommended rules to conduct a crowdfunding offering must file certain information with the Commission and provide this information to investors and the intermediary facilitating the offering, including among other things, to disclose: 
  • The price to the public of the securities or the method for determining the price, the target offering amount, the deadline to reach the target offering amount, and whether the company will accept investments in excess of the target offering amount;
  • A discussion of the company’s financial condition;
  • Financial statements of the company that, depending on the amount offered and sold during a 12-month period, are accompanied by information from the company’s tax returns, reviewed by an independent public accountant, or audited by an independent auditor.  A company offering more than $500,000 but not more than $1 million of securities relying on these rules for the first time would be permitted to provide reviewed rather than audited financial statements, unless financial statements of the company are available that have been audited by an independent auditor;
  • A description of the business and the use of proceeds from the offering;
  • Information about officers and directors as well as owners of 20 percent or more of the company; and
  • Certain related-party transactions.
In addition, companies relying on the crowdfunding exemption would be required to file an annual report with the Commission and provide it to investors.
Crowdfunding Platforms 
A funding portal would be required to register with the Commission on new Form Funding Portal, and become a member of a national securities association (currently, FINRA).  A company relying on the rules would be required to conduct its offering exclusively through one intermediary platform at a time. 
The recommended rules would require intermediaries to, among other things:
  • Provide investors with educational materials that explain, among other things, the process for investing on the platform, the types of securities being offered and information a company must provide to investors, resale restrictions, and investment limits;
  • Take certain measures to reduce the risk of fraud, including having a reasonable basis for believing that a company complies with Regulation Crowdfunding and that the company has established means to keep accurate records of securities holders;
  • Make information that a company is required to disclose available to the public on its platform throughout the offering period and for a minimum of 21 days before any security may be sold in the offering;
  • Provide communication channels to permit discussions about offerings on the platform;
  • Provide disclosure to investors about the compensation the intermediary receives;
  • Accept an investment commitment from an investor only after that investor has opened an account;
  • Have a reasonable basis for believing an investor complies with the investment limitations;
  • Provide investors notices once they have made investment commitments and confirmations at or before completion of a transaction;
  • Comply with maintenance and transmission of funds requirements; and
  • Comply with completion, cancellation and reconfirmation of offerings requirements.
The rules also would prohibit intermediaries from engaging in certain activities, such as:
  • Providing access to their platforms to companies that they have a reasonable basis for believing have the potential for fraud or other investor protection concerns;
  • Having a financial interest in a company that is offering or selling securities on its platform unless the intermediary receives the financial interest as compensation for the services, subject to certain conditions; and
  • Compensating any person for providing the intermediary with personally identifiable information of any investor or potential investor.
Regulation Crowdfunding would contain certain rules that are specific to registered funding portals consistent with their more limited activities than that of a registered broker-dealer.  The rules would prohibit funding portals from, among other things: offering investment advice or making recommendations; soliciting purchases, sales or offers to buy securities; compensating promoters and other persons for solicitations or based on the sale of securities; and holding, possessing, or handling investor funds or securities.
The rules would provide a safe harbor under which funding portals could engage in certain activities consistent with these restrictions.  The rules also would require funding portals to maintain certain books and records related to their transactions and business.
Crowdfunding is an evolving method of raising money through the Internet, but it has generally not been used to offer and sell securities.  That is because offering a share of the financial returns or profits from business activities could trigger the application of the federal securities laws, and an offer or sale of securities must be registered with the SEC unless an exemption is available.    
The JOBS Act included an exemption to permit securities-based crowdfunding and established the foundation for a regulatory structure for these transactions.  It also created a new entity – a funding portal – and allows these Internet-based platforms or intermediaries to facilitate the offer and sale of securities without having to register with the SEC as brokers.  The SEC was tasked with adopting rules to implement these provisions, which are intended to facilitate capital raising by small businesses while providing significant investor protections.
Staff Report 
The staff would undertake to study and submit a report to the Commission no later than three years following the effective date of Regulation Crowdfunding on the impact of the regulation on capital formation and investor protection. 
What’s Next?
The new rules and forms would be effective 180 days after they are published in the Federal Register, except that the forms enabling funding portals to register with the Commission would be effective January 29, 2016. 
Proposed Amendments to Facilitate Intrastate and Regional Securities Offerings
SEC Open Meeting
Oct. 30, 2015
The Securities and Exchange Commission is considering whether to propose amendments to Securities Act Rule 147 and Rule 504 of Regulation D.  The proposed amendments would be part of the Commission’s efforts to assist smaller companies with capital formation consistent with its investor protection mission. 
Highlights of the Proposed Amendments
Proposed Amendments to Rule 147
The proposed amendments would modernize Rule 147 to permit companies to raise money from investors within their state without concurrently registering the offers and sales at the federal level.  The proposed amendments to Rule 147 would, among other things:
  • Eliminate the restriction on offers, while continuing to require that sales be made only to residents of the issuer’s state or territory.
  • Refine what it means to be an intrastate offering and ease some of the issuer eligibility requirements in the current rule.
  • Limit the availability of the exemption to offerings that are registered in-state or conducted under an exemption from state law registration that limits the amount of securities an issuer may sell to no more than $5 million in a 12-month period and imposes an investment limitation on investors.
Proposed Amendments to Rule 504
The proposed amendments to Rule 504 of Regulation D would increase the aggregate amount of securities that may be offered and sold under Rule 504 in any 12-month period from $1 million to $5 million and disqualify certain bad actors from participation in Rule 504 offerings.  The proposed rules would facilitate capital formation and increase investor protection in such offerings.
The Commission adopted Rule 147 in 1974 as a safe harbor to a statutory intrastate exemption – Section 3(a)(11) – that was included in the Securities Act upon its adoption in 1933.  Market participants and state regulators have indicated that the combined effect of the statutory limitation on offers to persons residing in the same state or territory as the issuer and the prescriptive eligibility requirements of Rule 147 limit the availability of the exemption for companies that would otherwise conduct intrastate offerings. 
What’s Next?
The Commission will seek public comment on the proposed rules for 60 days.  The Commission will then review the comments and determine whether to adopt the proposed rules.

Crowdfunding Campaign To Help Tammie Evans Get A Wheelchair Van || Rheumatoid Arthritis #RA

Crowdfunding Campaign To Benefit Tammie Evans 
articles excerpted from

Tammie Evans had a very full life, she camped, fished, enjoyed her seven year old son, worked two jobs plus maintained and drove her own drag racing car; getting sick was the last thing on her mind. Sadly, that was the last month of health she saw.
The next month she was robbed at work. The assailants used pepper spray in her eyes, threw her in a broom closet and threatened her life. While her eyes recovered from the trauma, the rest of her didn’t. PTSD set in and a year later she found herself unable to stand, her knees were on fire with pain. As so often happens, the stress triggered the rheumatoid arthritis gene that she carried.
While trying to find a DMARD (disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug) that would work for her, Tammie was on steroid medications to control her symptoms. The disease itself plus the weight gain from the medications made it impossible to work and, like 50% of people with RA, by August, 1998, she was declared permanently disabled. Finding a medication that works can be a long process and up to 40% of patients do not respond to any medication. In Tammie’s case it took nine years. In 2006 her doctor finally found a medication that controlled her disease and slowly tapered her steroids down.
Often one condition leads to another and this was the case for Tammie. Her weight gain led to acid reflux which was controlled by Nexium. Both Nexium and steroids decrease bone mineral density and in 2010, Tammie fell backwards which caused compression fractures in several of her vertebrae putting her into a wheelchair.
Since 2010, she has pretty much been housebound. She desperately needs a handicapped van so that she can regain some independence. The estimated cost is $12,000. With the limited funds she receives from disability, it will be impossible for her to pay the additional expense that comes with modifying a van for a wheelchair. Little luxuries like grocery shopping and hair appointments that we all take for granted would mean the world to her. In addition, Tammie cares for her mother.  

Doing Good For Those In Need, A Mission For Orphans Targets $30,000 for New Girls Home

Read the full GoodCrowdinfo article and watch the interview here:

Have you ever seen something truly tragic and thought as you passed by, perhaps leaving a few dollars, “someone should really do something”?

Gene and Arlene Rumley had an experience like that while visiting India and decided not to just leave a few dollars, but instead to really do something.

Gene explains what they saw. “It is estimated that there are 15-20 million orphans in India. Girls, especially, are considered almost worthless, especially the ones living in extreme poverty. Thousands of children are digging in garbage dumps, abused, abandoned and prone to child trafficking. It is also estimated that there are over 300,000 street children living in Mumbai, India alone.”

Gene and Arlene created Mission for Orphans to provide for the care and feeding of the orphans in India.

Arlene explains, “For over the past ten years we have been raising funds to help feed, clothe and help educate the orphans and street kids, working with a family in India that we’ve known for almost 30 years. Presently, we are raising funds to complete the building of a Girl’s Home for 150 orphaned girls and a separate housing for 50 babies. We partner with Vision Rescue in India. This on the ground team works in the slums of Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai feeding, clothing, educating and offering medical support.”

“We are reaching out and helping to rescue boys and girls from lives of hopelessness and despair to lives with a future filled with hope. Mission for Orphans will help transform the hearts and future dreams for desperate children that have lost both parents. The goal is to build homes where girls and boys are loved, educated, and grow up as responsible citizens through breaking the cycle of poverty and discrimination,” Arlene concludes.

Right now they are crowdfunding on Indiegogo in hopes of raising enough money to build a home for girls.

Please consider whether a friend or colleague might benefit from this piece and, if so, share it.

NXT's "The Tennessee Project"

The Tennessee Project

A proposal for NXT marketing, promotion and development over the following 12 months

NXT has come a very long way over the last 2 years. We have created and maintained a solid technology base and community that has been innovative, honest, constructive and forward thinking. You just have to look at the working features Nxt has, as opposed to the promises of many others, and see that there is a lot of value in the Nxt project and ecosystem.

As we all know, our market capitalization has unfortunately shrunk by more than 90% over that time. Much of that loss, but not all, can be blamed on external market forces, as many other projects are in a similar state. The crypto-currency/blockchain technology market is also changing rapidly, as new players enter the game, like Eris and GetCredits.  Many of these new projects have their origins outside the ‘crypto scene’, and are markedly more professional in their business approach than the first generation of crypto-currency projects.

In this increasingly competitive, professionalized market, our approach to business adoption and development is holding us back: we have no real coordinated marketing strategy, and we have an over-reliance on volunteer work. Our main software client, the NRS, although very effective, is complex and intimidating, even for some crypto-currency insiders.  These issues need to be addressed now if Nxt is to carry on as a serious player in the crypto market.

We are the first to say that NXT does have a superb platform, with some very good external projects in our eco-system (for instance Supernet, [PICISI], DeBuNe, Pangea and many more) and an amazingly dedicated community, but we need to adapt to a changing market by focusing more energy on a coherent and outward looking marketing campaign and by making the Nxt user experience as easy as possible, for both entry level and more advanced users.

We (EvilDave and Damelon) therefore have made the following proposal, after talking extensively to Jean Luc and Lyaffe: to set up and finance a dedicated marketing and business co-ordination team, which will be run under the banner of the NXT Foundation, with full backing from the NXT core developers. This can be seen as a professionalization of the efforts we have been making over the last two years as volunteers.

In keeping with the decentralized/starfish nature of NXT, we will act as independent representatives for NXT and as coordinators and facilitators for the marketing/PR efforts of the NXT community (and outside contractors), but not as a group imposing any  ‘party line’ on the community.  Tennessee is an extra leg for the starfish, not a new brain. As we have already done, we will work with the whole community, and we invite each and every one of you to come to us should you need help.

The core team of Project Tennessee from the NXT Foundation will therefore be Bas Wisselink (Damelon) and Dave Pearce (EvilDave), who will receive a part-time salary on a self-employed basis, allowing them to work freely on Tennessee, in addition to their other tasks within the NXT community.

Several components of Tennessee will also require paid outside contractors or extra manpower, for which we are also here seeking budget.


Tennessee has three overall aims:

•   A major increase in and professionalization of NXT marketing

•   To improve the NXT user experience, in terms of ease of use, support and documentation

•   The acquisition of leads to both incorporate NXT into real world applications/businesses.and to attract investors to the platform.

In order to realize the above aims, the Tennessee project will have the following short term goals, to be realized by Q1 2016:

●   Completely overhaul , and streamline the web presence/SEO for all community owned sites.

●   Create a continuous and coherent marketing/PR campaign, putting the focus on what NXT has achieved so far, and on highlighting real world use cases for Nxt.

●   As part of the above 2 points: create a complete portfolio of use cases, media packs and other publicity material, to be used in all Nxt marketing.

●   Set up a coordinated team for social networking/forums.

●   Create a coherent strategy to interest potential Nxt-based projects and investors who may be interested in utilizing or investing in Nxt/SuperNet.

●   Expand and improve on relationships with our media contacts, including establishing exploratory relationships with professional PR agencies.

●   Create leads, and follow them up. This is a task we have been doing for months now, but it desperately needs to be "professionalised" and that means time.

Long term goals, to be realised by Q2/3 2016:

●   Assist/Finance the development and deployment of simplified NRS software: i.e.  Lite clients and webwallets.

●   Create a comprehensive user guide for the entire Nxt system, from account creation all the way to customised MS issues.

●   Set up an incubator system for both potential and currently running NXT based projects. This will have the aim of helping out projects with both direct technical/marketing assistance, and to bring these projects into contact with investors. The incubator will take a small percentage portion of any projects that it helps, and redistribute this income to the Nxt community.

●   Integrate a professional PR agency into Nxt promotion, and finance a campaign from them.

Further goals will be added to Tennessee as the project progresses, but this outline is a solid basis to build further marketing and PR on.

Funding & Fundraiser

We have talked to the core devs extensively over the last weeks and we estimate that to be able to do this for a period of 12 months, this project will require a minimum of 10 million NXT at current prices. This covers both our salaries for this period and the budget to actually do the tasks we need to be doing.

We have already started an informal fundraising project among NXT businesses and stakeholders to raise the minimum of 10 million NXT, and we are happy to say we have already received firm pledges for up to 5.5 million from Nxt investors and stake-holders.

This makes us confident we can raise the remaining 4.5 million NXT to complete the full 12 month commitment.

We want to start the fundraiser for this as soon as possible, and we will do this by a fundraiser using the Monetary System.

Using the MS in this way will also help us to create a complete use-case for ‘Nxt Monetary System as a crowdfunding platform’ , so we are actually using an aspect of the project to create material for one of the project goals.

The Foundation is also actively looking at methods to create an income stream for holders of the MS coin, possibly via licensing deals or as a result of income from the project incubator outlined above. This is very theoretical right now, however, and will not be happening in the short term. There are other uses for MS tokens and we will be exploring these.

If the 10 million minimum is not met by the closing date of the fundraiser, all reserved Nxt will of course be automatically returned to every donating account. We do sincerely hope it will not come to this, as we think this project is crucial to the future of the NXT Platform.

All Tennessee funds and administration will be handled by the Nxt Foundation, and most day to day decisions will be made and carried out by us, though we will be using the MS coin as a voting system to gather feedback from backers on major decisions.


You all know both EvilDave and me. We are asking you to enable us to do what we do best, which is go out there and get NXT the attention it deserves. We believe we have proven to have the commitment, skills and above all staying power to do this. Our skillsets are different, but complement each other well. As a team, we believe we can make a real difference, especially as we will be working with many people in the community and helping them to grow and flourish. We do not back down, we do not quit when the going gets tough, because we know we have created something of value and worth with the Nxt project.

We do think this is needed, based on our experience of the last two years, and we also think that this is a very good moment:  Nxt technology is mature, we have enough features to genuinely support outside projects, and the adoption of blockchain technology is starting to reach the mainstream.

And:  it’s almost our second birthday, we should celebrate our achievements.

Thursday, October 22, 2015 Exceeds Million Person Goal For SocialSUPPORT Campaign [update Exceeds Million Person Goal For SocialSUPPORT Campaign's goals are to have 100 people support their campaign, and to have their campaign message be sent to over ONE MILLION people.

Well it seems they have reached their second goal half way into the campaign, now it's only for them to reach their first goal.  The must reach the first goal in order for their message to be sent to the million+ people.

CrowdSUPPORT is a new phenomenon that is impacting social media on the internet.  Learn more about at our previous post here:

You could support the campaign at:

crowdSUPPORT campaign now at 65% complete
for supporters; still have 35% more to go this is grueling.

This is far harder than expected, with over 800 Twitter "followers" we thought it would be a breeze to get 100 supporters for this campaign.  Well to our surprise and major disappointment our conversion rate for twitter followers is 1 of every 40 followers.  If you ever tried to send out mass messages via twitter you know its a tough job.

The overwhelming majority of our support is coming from other crowdsupport campaigns.  Believe it or not, even there the support hard won.

We asked for support in many different ways, but the most effective way was to request mutual support first and wait for a positive response.  As the campaign ages the replies come in, they all realize how difficult the job is unless you just want to take the very easy route and buy the support.

For us this is a major exercise that is enabling us to have a closer relationship with our followers, we are reaching out, we are connecting, we are learning more about them and they are learning more about it.   This is very, very good for business and we feel it is a must do for all startups.  Get to know who your supporters are, and at what levels they are willing to support you.
