To keep it short and sweet :
D.BSTP, aka BitStamp, the two-cans-and-a-string exchange that found itself accidentally in a market leadership position through a string of failures and scamsi, notwithstanding that marketii has never been dominant, as OTC always held over 50% of BTC FX volume, nor has it grown any single quarter since 2011iii.
- Alleges to have raised 15`873 BTC (10 million USD), at an implied valuation of 55`555 (35 mn).
D.CBSE, aka CoinBase, the well known, well beloved VC scam trying to eke out some Bitcoin relevancy somehow. It doesn't actually have a business model, mostly known for trying to steal D.BPAY's payment processing.
- Alleges to have raised 50`317 BTC (31.7 million USD), at an implied valuation of 125`793 (79.25 mn).
- Alleges to have raised 26`984 BTC (17 million USD), at an implied valuation of 107`936 BTC (68 mn).
D.OKCO aka OkCoin. Void entity. No business model.
- Alleges to have raised 15`873 BTC (10 million USD), at an implied valuation of 63`492 (40 mn).
D.XAPO. Guy made a Bitcoin wallet, which he then "sold". Six months later, same people at the same business address are making the same exact thing, which they will "sell". No business model past PR.
- Alleges to have raised 31`746 BTC (20 million USD), at an implied valuation of 60`317 (38 mn)v.
All of these will be available on MPEx in the coming days, in conditions quite similar to the previous set of derps.———

- Square was "successful" you see, in the manner of Potato Salad Success. Consequently, there is "market" "demand" for Big Awesome Burritos and Circle. [↩]
