Some 2021 Asia-Pacific IPOs have seen a sharp reversal in their fortunes since their strong market debuts.

At the top of the list is Chinese short video company and Tiktok-rival Kuaishou, which more than doubled from its issue price during its February debut. It was the only Asia listing among this year’s top five largest IPOs globally by deal size, according to Morningstar.

 

As of Wednesday’s market close in Hong Kong, however, the stock sat 77% below those first day gains.

Elsewhere, shares of Indonesian e-commerce firm Bukalapak have also tumbled hard after rising almost 25% on day one of trading. The stock is now 57% below those levels, as of Wednesday’s close.

Another Chinese stock that has plunged from its debut gains is JD Logistics, which raised more than $3 billion in its IPO. The stock was 36% below its first day closing price, based on its Wednesday close.

Those losses follow a number of issues including Beijing’s ongoing crackdown on China’s tech sector, which led to giants like Alibaba and Meituan being slapped with massive fines.

U.S. Treasury yields have also risen as the Federal Reserve signals it will soon begin to normalize monetary policy. Under such conditions, investors tend to avoid stocks in sectors like tech. These stocks could be hurt by rising rates which affect a company’s ability to fund growth and also makes future cash flows less valuable.

 

The fast-spreading omicron Covid variant has also further weighed on investor sentiment in recent weeks and dampened risk appetite, with questions remaining over the new strain’s potential economic impact. Full story on CNBC

    • Recently, we have noticed the growth of Mobile mining, a lot of projects have sprung up where users earn passively through these mining platforms. Under the same breath, ICE blockchain has evolved as a new digital currency that can be mined or earned from any mobile device. The bourgeoning blockchain is solely based on a community of trust and has a decentralized governance model. The network is built with inherent scalability, such that it can scale a good number of network participants without compromising its speed or efficiency. On its most positive side, the Ice Open Network has high performance and has the innate capacity to process millions of transactions per second, heralding it as one of the fastest blockchains in the world. Through the instrument of its threads and shards, it parallelizes transactions into bits thus significantly increasing throughput and enhancing scalabilty. Apart from being highly scalable, it is an offshoot of TON blockchain that seeks to bring forth decentralized services for data privacy, user control and efficient data management. In the core spirit of Web3, Ice network has a decentralized identity service that allows users to create and manage their own digital identities with top level assurance, privacy and security. Flowing from above, the ICE network has a good number of usecases and more are in the offing as well. Consequently, platforms like Bitget have declared intent to list the native token $ICE on 28th February, with a deposit to earn event. This is a really good way for the project to garner spotlight. I’m optimistic as per its growth in the long run.    
    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
