wondering who are the buyers of this offering... it is more than 10% if it all goes to one buyer... and who are these buyers can 'bring something to the table'?  :P

Maybe they just need the cash to burn for all these investments...

6/29: OSTK announces that GSR Capital will purchase $160 million in tZero tokens

7/2: Nissan Motor cancels planned $1 billion sale of its electric car battery unit to GSR, claiming that GSR lacked the funds to complete the purchase, despite the deal close being delayed several times

https://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Business-Deals/Nissan-cancels-900m-sale-of-battery-subsidiary-to-China-s-GSR


I go to GSR's website and the most recent PR (dated 8/8/2017) is titled "GSR Capital Acquires Nissan’s Battery Business."

GSR is based in Beijing and Hong Kong, but claims to have an office in Palo Alto, CA. The phone # listed is 1-650-331-7300. I Google'd this # and the first result is Sunsun Lighting Co. Sunsun looks like a company that GSR made a venture capital type investment in some years ago.

Then I Google'd the fax number (1-650-331-7301) GSR lists for its Palo Alto office. The first result is DHVC (aka "Danhua Capital"), an unaffiliated Chinese venture capital-outfit.

Seems legit........

CEO is definitely the most sketchy person to be acknowledged at a Berkshire meeting, no?

I would short this one on any strength like today.  The long term trend is clear at this point.
