My Grandma's Table ... An Antique?

I know virtually nothing about antiques.

There … I said it. In the past year in which I have been strolling around the Antiques Quarter as their resident photographer (or tog as we say in the trade …. Basically I make a big black thing go click) I have learned nothing about antiques. I have not the slightest notion as to what actually constitutes an antique and what does not.

Is the indestructible bulk of my great grandma’s table an antique? I have no idea but it sits solidly and sturdy in the corner of my room with no intention of ever falling apart. I know that the person who made it would not have used power tools. This is far more impressive than my wardrobe which was purchased two years ago and I fear will not live to see its third birthday.

Antiques value for the shopper

I know that this wardrobe was designed on a computer and constructed on a factory assembly line with power tools and was finally put together by me with a screwdriver and wine. All of which combined created a delicate little flower that does not like too many clothes hanging or the bar begins to bend. I say it is unlikely to make its third birthday but I fear it seeing next Wednesday is being optimistic. This is especially true if I decide to purchase another shirt and tax its already questionable abilities.

If we are unlucky enough to suffer a nuclear war then the surviving cockroaches will be sitting to dinner at my great Grandma’s table.

I of course know all this before I purchased the wardrobe which begs the question as to why I decided to purchase something that will fall down next week rather than something built to outlast the human race.

I do have a rather sneaky suspicion the table is vintage rather than antique. This matters not as it is quite content to sit there awaiting antique status.

Antiques value for the shopper

Happily for me and for any of you who nothing of antiques it does not matter. It takes no knowledge of the difference of what constitutes antiques or vintage or even antique, vintage and retro to recognise something lovely to purchase. It also takes no special ability to recognise if blowing on piece of furniture causes it to sway then potentially it is not a great purchase.

There has been a massive sea change in purchasing over the last few years. Charity shop shopping has become the cool thing to do and people are looking for alternatives to mass produced items, up cycling for instance has seen a huge boom. Pre owned is no longer the arena of the strapped for cash but the purchasing habit of those savvy shoppers looking for something different and of good value.

And by good value I certainly do not mean cheap. A lot goes into procuring the Antique (?) item, storing it and in many cases restoring it.

And then there is the concept of thinking outside the box .... Like some old cinema seats for the kids games room for example. 

Antiques value for the shopper

Now I get all best ideas either at 3am (there is a notebook next to my bed ... Last entry reads "Guy stood on a chair in an alleyway" ..... So maybe not all the ideas are belters) or while showering in the morning. 

Before I horrify you with unpleasant imagery I get my ideas somewhere between shampooing the hair and lathering the torso. By the time I am at the tootsies I am refining the idea. This morning for example I was around the elbow when I started thinking about great Grandma's table and the irony that I know nothing about antiques. 

It was while I was at the Tootsies that I had the idea that I really should get a model to pose on the table. I am not sure great Grandma would approve but that is the joy of antiques, you do not necessarily have to use them for their original purpose ... You can get creative. 

You also have no idea what kind of history they have .... Those cockroaches will have no idea that a model laid on the table ... I'll make sure I polish it afterwards.

Recently, many blockchain corporations have been exploring using preliminary coin offerings (ICOs) to lift funds to launch and develop ambitious initiatives.
Yesterday, it finally did with its announcement that virtual tokens like those bought by the DAO are securities
and now subject to federal securities legal guidelines.
If I run a video game company, for instance, I can sell you tokens that signify in-sport purchases as soon as the game is constructed.
To work together with the contracts, users need ethers — the
internal foreign money of Ethereum. Most ICOs do not need to be thought of a safety due to the incumbent regulations,
but many see a shiny future with ICOs been categorized registered securities.

Investments will consist of low-value funding products corresponding to trade
traded funds (ETFs), crypto-funds (a portfolio of various
cryptocurrencies and crypto tokens) in addition to roboadvisory options for wealth
management. That change sparked an investigation by the Article 29 Working Occasion: the group of
EU information safety authorities which incorporates the UK's Data Commissioner's Office (ICO).
If a crypto token derives its worth from an exterior, tradable asset, it's labeled as a security token and becomes topic to federal securities rules.

If a breach is of a critical nature nonetheless, Providers should notify the ICO
as quickly as possible by completing the security breach notification form accessible on the ICO
web site and submitting it by e mail to datasecuritybreach@.
It appears to me that the SEC will most certainly see any ICOs as securities tokens until the
issuer can prove in any other case. Promoters could tell purchasers that the capital raised
from the sales will be used to fund development of a digital platform,
software, or other initiatives and that the digital
tokens or cash could also be used to entry the platform,
use the software program, or otherwise take part in the challenge.

Specifically, the tZERO token holders at the moment are being offered the power to purchase
blockchain-enabled digital find receipts , together with newly revealed robo-advising services, online retail brokerage services, insurance merchandise and education providers dispersed in an app store-like
setting. I forgot to mention, 1,seven hundred% Development expected of SPC Tokens in 6 months
by creating World's First Cyber Safety Risk Intelligence De-Centralized Database on Blockchain to foretell warn & cease future
Cyber Assaults.

Sensible traders at the moment are capitalizing on the battle in opposition to the rising wave of cybercrime and you can be part
of them. Within the USA, the check to find out whether or not a
transaction is an ‘funding contract' and due to this fact
a safety as defined in the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Trade Act of 1934,
was formulated in Securities and Change Commission v.
W. J. Howey Co., 328 U.S. 293 (1946). Solely a lawyer who understands
securities legislation will be able to counsel ICOs in any case.
ICO Scroll supplies a custodian digital asset pockets to it is web site users.

Whether or not these three types of tokens are securities remains unclear
as their technical variations are blurry.
Nonetheless, if a startup meets all its regulatory obligations, the security
token classification creates the potential for all kinds of applications, essentially the most promising of which is the flexibility to issue tokens that signify
shares of company stock. Like IPOs, ICOs are primarily customer centric, and but, since
not all cryptocurrencies could be thought of securities, many ICOs
are open to just about anybody.

Some are structured in Switzerland, some in Singapore, which has a very token-pleasant regime the place tokens aren't thought-about
a security. Evgenia has organized a range of cybersecurity and blockchain events.
One hour after the ICO officially went live, the company recognized
a safety problem, brought on by a fraudulent contribution deal with, and briefly shut down the web site to protect all individuals.” reads the press release published by
the company on Medium. This rapidly rising asset class
of blockchain-based digital tokens has raised greater than $2 billion so far this yr
(per 's ico-tracker ) and cryptocurrencies total (including digital tokens) have a current market cap of $137 billion (per ),
making this a huge growth industry.

We are dreamers too but with a imaginative and prescient & braveness to make SecurityPlusCloud a leader in cyber security operations & cyber security blockchain solutions.
I am regularly asked the question If I do an ICO - Preliminary Coin Providing
- within the United States or for U.S. Traders, will
it qualify as a regulated security or an investment contract that needs to adjust to the SEC (Securities and Trade Commission)?” The reply to
this query isn't easy and requires deeper clarification,
as it appears there's plenty of confusion around this subject.

No. Relying on the providers rendered by an organization or its
service suppliers and qualification of the token as a transferable security, a company or its service suppliers may very well
be obliged to obtain a license as an funding firm (e.g.
in case of brokerage services) or operator of a trading venue (primarily
based on the EU Markets in Financial Devices Directive, MiFID).
The packages, also known as sensible contracts, are written to the blockchain. Based on the above, it's my opinion (bear in mind I'm not a lawyer nor need to present any
kind of legal recommendation to anyone) that an appropriately designed Blockchain Token that consists of rights, and doesn't embody any investment interests, should not be deemed to be a safety
ICO, subject to the specific facts, circumstances and characteristics of the Blockchain Token itself.

Virtual foreign money exchanges and other entities holding digital currencies,
digital tokens or cash could also be inclined to fraud,
technical glitches, hacks, or malware. 's ICO protection service was
created by international cyber safety firm Positive Applied sciences.
With information breaches on the rise, we at Managed Encryption (together with the help of the ICO) set
out to educate businesses and organisations on the importance
of securing sensitive knowledge, each public and enterprise related.
It is sad however many people would put their whole financial savings and subsequent months lease right
into a risky investment that isn't publicly traded on a regulated
market and basically lose their money most of the time as a result of they make investments on hype
and because their buddy advised them.
