New Site Planned by John Lothian

John Lothian, the publisher of the John Lothian Newsletter and founder of MarketsWiki, today announced a new microwiki website, CryptoMarketsWiki (CMW), is in development in the burgeoning crypto markets area to launch late in the second quarter of 2018.

The aim of CMW will be to educate and inform the public, traders, investors, industry professionals, government employees, the media and others interested in cryptomarkets, fintech, and related regtech subjects.

“The crypto markets have grabbed the public’s attention, but there is a great deal of self-serving, promotional information that is being passed off as educational, and the investing public needs an independent, reliable source for crypto market information,” said John Lothian, Executive Chairman & CEO of John J. Lothian & Company and founder of CryptoMarketsWiki. “We see CryptoMarketsWiki as the one, trusted source for information in this field.”

Lothian has named Jim Falvey and Chuck Mackie to help lead the project. Falvey is an attorney who brings a wealth of experience on venture formation and regulation in the crypto asset world. Mackie will focus on business development and content creation for CryptoMarketsWiki.

“The crypto markets are developing at a breakneck pace, and there is a real need for guidance on developments to the regulatory framework as it changes,” according to Falvey. “CryptoMarketsWiki will help market participants to stay up to speed in this fast changing field.”

Adds Mackie: “John J. Lothian & Company is a trusted source for news and information on markets and our previous experience with and make us the perfect host for a wiki that covers the crypto asset markets.”

Additionally, venture capital and international business entrepreneur Rumi Morales has agreed to act as the head of an advisory board to be formed.

As part of the business plan, Lothian and his team will explore from an editorial and strategic perspective the process of holding an ICO and how this technology can be used to enhance the operation and success of the enterprise.

CMW will license the use of the MarketsWiki name and operate as a sub-domain of John Lothian News (“JLN”) will provide services to CMW to build and edit content in the site.

CMW will offer sponsorships to companies and organizations interested in public education in the cryptomarkets/fintech/regtech areas, promoting their enterprises and being aligned with the aims of the site.  Sponsors will receive advertising on the CMW site as well in the John Lothian Newsletter in a newly developed CryptoMarkets section.

John J. Lothian & Company, Inc. (“JJLCO”) will create a Class B corporation for the purposes of owning and operating a website with the URL (“CMW”).  A Class B Corporation is a new and voluntary corporate entity that allows businesses to consider profit as well as society and the environment. This form of incorporation allows a  business to balance fiduciary duty between its shareholders and stakeholders.
