I have two Capital Stock Share Certificates which I've

I have two Capital Stock Share Certificates which I've inherited from my Grandfather, One Certificate is dated 1917 and is for 2 shares at $25.00 each. The other Certificate is dated 1920 and is also for 2 shares at $25.00 each. The certificates show an authorized capital of $50,000.00.The company name on these certificates is "The Farmer's Elevator and Exchange of Wapello, Iowa".Which is still in business as "The Farmer's Elevator and Exchange of Wapello, Iowa" and estimated gross income of 20 million or more annually.I've contacted the company via email with a letter inquiring on what the value of my certificates is as of now and what is the process for redemption of the certificates. Following is the letter I received in response to my inquiry...Dear Mr. Merri, August 23, 2016We will certainly research your matter further. What we can share with you at this time is about 15 years ago all information of any currently active certificates had been electronically filed in our accounting database. There is no electronic information for either stock certificate number 83 or 290; or the last name Scheffelbein or Merri. Any physical, archived records of sales or transfers of certificates by Farmers Elevator & Exchange are held in our office safe, which is currently inaccessible for approximately 1-2 weeks due to office remodeling. When we regain access to our office safe, we will research any sales or transfers of these certificates we have available.In regards ***** ***** certificates current value, the shares are not sold or purchased by Farmers Elevator & Exchange. Shares are recognized by Farmers Elevator & Exchange as having a par value of $25.00, although we have received notice of shareholders selling them from between $40.00 and $100.00 per share. Any sales of shares are handled by the current shareholder and reported to Farmers Elevator & Exchange for the purpose of issuing a new share to the new shareholder. Farmers Elevator & Exchange will post the contact information of shareholders wishing to sell their shares in the Farmers Elevator & Exchange Office, on the Farmers Elevator & Exchange homepage, and via Farmers Elevator & Exchange social media pages. Please refer to the attached email correspondence from October 5, 2015 regarding the process of posting a share for sale.Once again, when we regain access to our records we will be in contact regarding any information about the sales or transfers of stock certificates 83 or 290.Sincerely,Management TeamFarmers Elevator & Exchange, Inc.105 Highway 61 NP.O. Box 65Wapello, IA 52653Ph:(###) ###-####| Toll-Free:(###) ###-####| Fax:(###) ###-####***@******.*** | www.farmerseande.comThe company's response doesn't make any sense to me. Am I wrong in my thinking which is I have 4 shares issued in 1917 when the company began and in 1920 valued then at $25.00 per. The company's authorized capital was $50,000.00. Simple math tells me 2,000 shares where issued which would mean my 4 shares represent an ownership of .2% of the company back in 1917 / 1920. Now I would imagine by legal definition alone that my certificates represent .2% ownership of the company today. Although now the company has 62,000 shares issued.Do these certificates not represent .2% of the company as of today? And as there hasn't been dividends payed on them that money should be owing as well?

Hey! I just typed out a question and went forward with the process, than I backed up to add a little more detail and it seems to be gone! I am wondering if you got it or if I need to retype it!JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: Colorado!JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Briefly a few weeks ago, but there is some detail I wish I had covered that I didn't get to at the time.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: There are a few other factors at play involving existing debt and royalties, but I am fairly confident about how those will play out. As far as the division of the equipment goes: Mike, the member who is leaving has receipts proving that he bought much of this equipment in question. I can show that I paid for a similar amount of other things like gas, insurance, etcetera out of my own pocket that cannot be just pulled back out of the company. We also sold and got rid of the old lights and sound equipment in our fixtures, which I can prove we owned before he was part of the organization, and he upgraded these fixtures with the equipment I am speaking of.

I am starting a Bitcoin exchange website, it won't be using

I am starting a Bitcoin exchange website, it won't be using any fiat currencies. Only trading between crypto currencies. I live in Texas. Will that be considered taxable income? Also do I have to obtain any special licenses? Will there be a difference if the site is hosted offshore? I know Bitcoin is not considered money so I believe it is legal to run this business. Please advise, thanks.
