By CCN Markets: YouNow, a live video streaming startup, has filed a public offering circular with the U.S. SEC for a native cryptocurrency called the Props token. The company is not looking to sell this digital asset to investors; instead, they want to distribute it and are seeking compliant ‘mining’ of Props in the U.S. The filing has been done through the SEC’s A+ exemption, which entitles a successful company to offer and sell securities to U.S. investors. However, YouNow’s application for this exemption raises an interesting consideration for the SEC, as the company would not be selling the asset.

Facebook is planning to launch a cryptocurrency it hopes will “transform the global economy.” The currency, named Libra, is being developed by Facebook, but the company intends to share control with a consortium of organizations, including venture capital firms, credit card companies, and other tech giants.

20:42 TheVerge.comFacebook’s Libra won’t be as power-hungry as Bitcoin

Libra, Facebook’s new cryptocurrency, is expected to have a smaller environmental footprint compared to some of its more notorious blockchain brethren, including bitcoin, according to experts. Its energy demands are projected to be more like those of existing data centers — which, while still demanding, aren’t quite as energy-hungry as mining bitcoins.

The currency hasn’t launched yet, so it’s hard to know how those claims will stack up against reality. But its design — more centralized than most cryptocurrencies — means that Libra will likely draw less energy. Unlike its more decentralized peers, only a few trusted members of the Libra Association, the centralized hub for the currency, can create Libra.
