In response to a request filed by the U.S Security and Exchange Commission on Aug. 12, a United States District Court has entered an emergency freeze to preserve $8 million of a New York citizen and two of his entities related assets.
Announced in a publication by the SEC on Aug. 13, the court agreed, ordering the temporary freeze of $8 million of the $14.8 million Reginald “Reggie” Middleton and two entities under his management, Veritaseum, Inc. and Veritaseum, LLC raised in 2017 and 2018 by conducting a fraudulent and unregistered initial coin offering (ICO). The SEC specifically alleges the defendants of violating the registration and antifraud provisions of the U.S. federal securities laws, as well as manipulative trading.
As per the SEC filling on Aug. 12, the companies sold tokens called VERI, which were apparently issued on the Ethereum blockchain and pegged to Ether (ETH) at a 30:1 ratio. The defendants reportedly presented VERI as a utility token, saying that it could be redeemed for benefits such as consulting and advisory services and purportedly unlimited access to research.
The SEC thus seeks the defendants to pay permanent injunctions, disgorgement, interest, and penalties and a bar from offering digital securities. Marc P. Berger, director of the SEC’s New York Regional Office, said:
“After learning about Middleton’s transfer of funds, we took quick action to prevent the further dissipation of investor assets. Whether in digital currency or plain cash, we will act to protect investor assets and to pursue fraud and manipulation in our securities markets.”
Participants need to prepare a set of stickers on SmartHoldem.io topics for the Telegram messenger (it can be further implemented into other messengers and social networks)
The number of images is unlimited, however, in order for this to really be a "set", there must be at least fifteen of them. 10 for smiles, and 5 for your discretion.
Please bear in mind that each image must correspond to some emotion - an emoticon.
Try to make your stickers diverse ...
... and at the same time, do not forget that they must be implemented in a single style.
Images should be prepared in png format, size 512x512 px (do not forget about the transparent background).
How to download stickers in telegrams? You can see here: https://youtu.be/KMkzerQI0LM

SmartHoldem is a global decentralized gaming platform with a set of protocols to ensure gaming integrity and maintain anonymity of information, where all the net members do not need to trust each other or anyone. The platform is protected by a reliable distributed register with the advanced modified encryption technologies.
We intentionally created blockchain from the ground up to be develop a stable progressive BlockChain, thus eliminating the problems of Bitcoin and later systems and providing innovative additional native functions. At this moment no one public blockchain provides such technologies.
All process are implemented and regulated by the unique technology of the P2P nodes, public BlockChain, GameNet, deterministic SmartEvents algorithm and more advanced 2nd Delegate L Proof-of-Stake. Tickets for a tournament game, the random number generation, payment of prize money, affiliate programme, SuperNodes bonus as well as charge on the distributed network are carried out with the SmartEvents algorithm, without human intervention.
A new technology protocol, developed in the SmartHoldem Platform, SmartEvents is a heart of the system, guarantor, gaming arbiter and the betting bank. SmartEvents provides some other innovative functions related to events. Within the SmartEvents protocol, programming language is used, supporting the Turing construction with the functions required for the automated events performance.
2nd Delegate L Proof-of-Stake of SmartHoldem Platform in itself technically consists of two kinds of nodes:
Level A delegates – SmartHoldem participants, supporting the servers function, provide network functions and develop new blocks with transactions. It is necessary to install and set up special server. The number of the first level delegates at the start is limited to 64 persons. Any participant can become a delegate if he or she can win a sufficient number of votes. If a delegate does not do his job – stopped signing blocks, a new delegate being beyond a list of 64 participants, can take his place, in other words, delegates, waiting for own turn, maybe more and more. In effect, a network is supported by the qualitative servers, consisted of the delegates. Pure democracy model is run here.
Level B delegates – the special SmartHoldem nodes, responsible for distribution prize fund of the gameplays, obtained in poker game, for example. A winner can pick his money by deducting small rake percent. These commission fees are used to reward «mainers» for their supporting network. In order to become a level B delegate it is necessary to set up complete node, rather than a level A delegate, it is enough to have accessible in online mode computer, Raspberry PI also will serve, and there is need of minimal balance from 10. 000 and even more SmartHoldem coins. The more the second level being in operation, the better network stability is and less stock money on change. We do not forget about small token holders, for example, user who has 2. 000 coins on his own balance, can take the part in prize fund distribution from the gameplays, leased out his/her balance to the complete level B node.
