$3 billion blockchain bond sale delayed ‘until further notice’



The listing of China Construction Bank’s blockchain-based debt issuance bonds has been delayed “at the request of the issuer” until further notice, according to a Nov. 13 statement from the Fusang exchange where they were due to be traded.

A block-explorer scan of the smart-contract address associated with the sale shows no transactions, suggesting that the sale and issuance of the bonds has also been delayed.

As Cointelegraph reported just last week, CCB is the second-largest bank in the world in terms of assets held.

It planned to raise up to $3 billion in total through the bond issuance, with an initial tranche of $58 million due to launch for live trading on Nov. 13.

The bonds were set to be issued as digital assets on the Ethereum blockchain through an offshore branch of CCB on the small island of Labuan, Malaysia, which has a reputation as a tax haven.

The digital tokens were to sell at a face value of $100 each, enabling both institutions and private investors to take part in the sale.

The Fusang exchange, where the bonds were due to be traded, is also regulated in Labuan, and supports cryptocurrency trading, meaning that investors could have exchanged Bitcoin (BTC) for dollars in order to take part in the sale.

It is unknown at this stage when or if the sale will be rescheduled.
