Sharering (SHR) I believe this one is going to surprise so many. Already generating revenue and doing buybacks every week. Already over 10 000 registered users. Mainnet + app + masternodes and staking before EOY.
I got this stuff from Steve Aitchison, he wrote this review and posted it on Uptrennd. Figured I should put it on here as well since I truly believe this is an incredible moonshot. I'm personally holding SHR myself and am very convinced it will do extremely well. Give a read through it and you will immediatly see why. Enjoy guys. Introduction Imagine for a second the following scenario. You are a 2 car family. One car is used every day going back and forth to work, for shopping, all the little jaunts you and your husband like to go on. Your grown children are at university and come home for the weekends so the other car sits in the driveway all week and doesn’t get used during the week. What a waste of a perfectly good car. You think to yourself we could put that car to good use and actually help to pay for university fees, by renting it out during the week. However, then you think “well it’s only a little Ford Fiesta who’s going to want to rent that.” Well, it turns out a lot of people want to rent it and for a good price: £34 ($40) per day, a possible $800 per month. Peer to peer car sharing has grown massively over the last few years and people are making serious money by letting our vehicles on a daily basis, emulating the Airbnb model. In fact companies like Turo, Getaround and Drivy, which has just been acquired by Getaround for $300 Million, are bringing in serious investors like Toyota, Softbank Vision Fund, Menlo Ventures, and IAC to the tune of over $800 Million. A key difference between rental companies and peer to peer is that they have vastly improved technology with app interfaces that make locating assets and resources, reserving and using them, and making payment convenient and seamless. This, combined with location-specific analytics, allows by-the-minute access to assets and resources (e.g. cars or bicycles) and enables customers to pick up and drop these assets where and when convenient. Car sharing is just one example of an industry that is being disrupted. We have seen, experienced and read about the amazing growth of Airbnb which is now estimated to be valued at $38 Billion. Airbnb has been so successful that companies like booking.com are trying to get in on the act by adopting a similar model when it comes to booking accommodation. There is also the phenomenal rise of bicycle rentals which we see in cities all over the world, not quite the same as peer to peer sharing, but it’s another rental model that is ripe for being disrupted by the new sharing model. With this business model in mind what other areas could it be used in: Transport: Used for the rental of cars, trucks, scooters, trailers, and even heavy vehicles. Delivery Drivers: Facilitate booking and payment for delivery drivers. Agriculture: Garden sharing, seed swap, bee-hive relocation, etc. Finance: Peer to peer lending Food bank, social dining Travel Tours, shared tour groups Real Estate Airbnb, co-housing, co-living, Couchsurfing, shared office space, house swapping. Time: Labour, co-working, freelancing Assets Book swapping, clothes swapping, fractional ownership, freecycling, toy libraries. Transportation Car sharing, ride-sharing, car-pooling, bicycle sharing, delivery company, couriers And so much more! This newly emerging, but highly fragmented sharing industry, is currently worth over $100 billion. It is predicted to grow to at least $335 billion by 2025. As you can see from a few examples above the sharing economy has a lot of room to grow but what it doesn’t have, yet, is a company who can facilitate ALL of the above use cases in one place. That is until now! ShareRing is disrupting the disruptors by bringing everything together in one place and making it easy for you and me to share anything and everything and making it as easy as opening an app on your phone. Business Case The sharing market has exploded over the last several years. This is due, in part, to the digital age we live in, as we now have over 2.82 Billion people with smart phones around the world. It also due to how easy the business model of sharing lends itself to the digital world, and how with the simple installation of an app we can access a plethora of markets to rent almost anything from. Due to this rise of digital platforms and the proliferation of smartphones, revenues coming from sharing economy platforms are only expected to increase. It is estimated to grow to a $335 billion industry in 2025, compared to its $14 billion value in 2014. (PwC UK). The beauty of the sharing economy is that it is a win/win/win situation for the person who wants to rent something for a few days or weeks, the person who is renting out, and the company who facilitates the ease of the transactions between the renter and the person renting out. Typically the renter will save a lot of money whilst renting out someone else’s apartment, car, bicycle, clothes, dog sitting services etc and they can almost be assured of quality due to the social side of the business model with reviews from real people. The person who is renting out can make additional income and will want good reviews and therefore keep the standard of service higher. The company that is facilitating all of this can make a lot of money on transaction fees, as well as from advertising, and partnership deals, and obviously have an exit strategy for possible buyouts. When it comes to looking at the business model, ShareRing fits in to the Commission Based Platform as described in Ritter and Schanz study where they looked at the core difference in difference business models of the sharing economy: Singular Transaction Models, Subscription-Based Models, Commission-Based Platforms and Unlimited Platforms.) Commission Based Platforms are dominated by (at least) triadic relationships amongst providers, intermediaries and consumers with a utility-bound revenue stream. These business models enable their customers to switch between provider and consumer roles by creating and delivering the value proposition. Only a few employees work for the intermediary and the value creation and delivery is externalized. From a consumer perspective, consumers are empowered to collaborate with each other and to design the collaboration terms by negotiating the terms and conditions of the content, creation, distribution and consumption of the value proposition. Depending on the orientation of the value proposition, consumers purchase commodities (Tauschticket, ebay), access commodities in a defined timespan (booking.com, Airbnb) or buy services (uber, turo) from occasional and professional providers found via an intermediary. The intermediary mainly focuses on nurturing a community feeling and reducing exchange insecurity by incorporating rating systems, micro-assurances and standardizations of payment and delivery into the platform. The platform mainly takes commissions for successful matching and executing trade. (Journal of Cleaner Production Volume 213, 10 March 2019, Pages 320-331) The USP of the ShareRing Business Model The USP that ShareRing has is that it brings all of the different forms of sharing together in one app through partnerships and onboarding of users. No other company, to date, is bringing everything together in such a way. However there are other factors that make ShareRing unique, which we will look at. Token Economics SHR is a utility token and will be used to pay for transactions on the network, such as 'new booking', 'add asset', etc. SHR is used by providers to pay for their access to the ShareLedger blockchain, including the addition of assets, renting out of assets, adding attributes, adding smart contracts, and other features. SharePay (SHRP) is used by customers to pay for the rental of assets. Masternodes will also be a main feature of the SHR token. When a transaction fee is incurred, it will be distributed in a way that allows for masternode holders who provide a service to the platform to receive a reward from each transaction. Transaction fees are charged to sharing providers in SHR. The distribution of transaction fees will be as follows: 50% - will be distributed amongst the active masternode holders who host an active node on the blockchain at that point in time (these holders provide a service to the platform). The distribution will be based on a calculation of the Total Amount Staked and the total continuous uptime of the node. 50% - will be provided to ShareRing Ltd (view ShareRing owned masternodes) for various purposes that contribute to working capital and platform growth. Leased Proof of Stake Consensus ShareRing have chosen the Leased Proof-of-Stake protocol as the consensus algorithm for ShareLedger. This choice is based on the practicality and security benefits evident in the Waves platform. It is also much more cost effective than Proof-of-Work (POW), and will not suffer from the current issues Bitcoin and other POW cryptocurrencies are facing such as scalability and electricity consumption. As explained above master nodes will be a main feature but there is the other feature of lightweight nodes. A user with a lightweight node will be able to stake their tokens to a full node of their choosing and participate in reaching consensus. They will also be free to cancel their leasing at any time as there are no contracts or freezing periods. The more tokens that have been staked in a full node, the higher the probability the node will have in producing the next block. Since the reward is given based on the total number of tokens staked in the full node, there will always be a trade-off between the size of the full node and the percentage of the reward. As an average user of the platform, you will not need to have technical knowledge on how to set up a node nor will you have to download the entire blockchain in order to stake your tokens. Only a user who sets up a full node will be required to do this, making it simpler than ever for users to earn a reward for supporting the platform. The return expected for staking is expected to be around 6 - 8% although this has yet to be confirmed. Buybacks ShareRing are currently implementing a series of buybacks which started in the beginning of November: The buyback operation is done at a random time during the week. If there is enough liquidity, SHR tokens will be bought through a single market order at the time of buyback. In case there is not enough liquidity, a limit buy order at last sell order price will be placed on the market, and will remain open until it gets filled. The buyback program was implemented to test the API purchase process for when live transactions occur on ShareLedger The Buyback Program is expected to:
Reduce the supply of ShareTokens available in both public and private markets
Bring New capital and fund inflows into the Shareledger
Substantially magnify value creation for the ShareToken holders
The Token Flow ShareRing will bring in hundreds of merchants to list their rental products, either exclusively or as part of an aggregator system e.g. When you look at the likes of trivago.com they will list the best hotel prices from multiple merchants who are listed on their website. Essentially ShareRing will become part of the aggregator ecosystem and be listed on sites like trivago.com as well as have exclusive agreements with merchants who are listed directly on their app. ShareRing’s USP is that they have everything on one place as well as their OneID module with means buyers can get a hotel, rent a car, rent their ski equipment, book events all through the one app and using the OneID. With that in mind they are going to attract a lot of merchants. This is where it gets exciting so pay attention to this part. When a merchant is part of the ShareRing ecosystem and a buyer rents something from that merchant ShareRing will take a small % commission from that transaction. So say someone books a hotel for $100 for the night, ShareRing might take $0.50 as a commission. What ShareRing will then do is go to one of the exchanges that ShareRing (SHR) is listed on and buy SHR tokens directly using an API system using USDT. Now, the actual commission has not been disclosed yet however if we assume even a 0.25% commission that means for every $100 Million worth of bookings made through the app will net ShareRing $250,000 which means buy backs of $250,000 for the SHR token, which increases the liquidity of SHR on the exchanges. If you think $100 Million of bookings is a lot, booking.com customers book around 1.5 Million rooms per day, if we estimate an average of $50 per room that is $75 million of bookings PER DAY or $2 Billion worth of bookings per month. This revenue coupled with revenue from OneID and eVOA makes ShareRing profitable almost from day one of the app going live. OneID And eVOA Another exciting development from the ShareRing team is the collaboration between ShareRings Self Sovereign Identity protocol and third party providers to bring OneID and eVOA which will utilise OneID With the huge rise in E-commerce and with over 2.82 billion people who now own a smartphone we are entrusting our personal information to more and more centralised entities. These entities are frequently hacked and our information is leaked to outside parties. ShareRing aims to tackle this with their service OneID module. ShareRing’s OneID solution protects users' data by handling Know Your Customer (KYC) information through third parties and ShareRing’s Self Sovereign Identity Protocol. ShareRing does not hold any identifying information anywhere on its servers. It provides the ultimate security for the renter and also the provider, as the Protocol encrypts and stores your data in a secure manner within your device. Essentially, this means that it is near impossible for a hack or data leak to happen, simply because there is no centralized server of data for hackers to exploit. The OneID module is very easy to use. The end-user needs to complete their ID submission only once, with the entire submission process requiring less than two minutes to complete. Once this step has been completed, the customers KYC is destroyed by the 3rd party document verification system and the OneID module allows merchants to verify a customer’s identity via a hashed verification packet, stored on the users device and ShareLedger. This removes the need for merchants to store or see personal information; safeguarding both merchants and users from fraud. To create your ShareRing OneID, simply:
Take a picture of your government ID document
Take a selfie
Confirm and submit your details
This is something I am really excited about for ShareRing and they already have made partnerships for other companies to use this feature which is another income stream for ShareRing. eVOA E-Visa On Arrival allows applicants to apply online and receive a travel authorisation before departure – this eVOA can be shown at dedicated Thailand immigration counters on arrival at major Thailand airports, allowing travellers to pass through in minutes. OneID system is scheduled to become the lynchpin technology in Thailand’s electronic Visa On Arrival (eVOA) system; one of only two companies to partner with Thai authorities to provide this service. The new Visa system eliminates much of the hassle involved in entering the country: This is a strong validation of the OneID system - immigration controls are some of the most scrutinized processes in any branch of government, and if the OneID solution can operate to their standards then it is truly business-ready. As explained by our COO, Rohan Le Page: “We are providing our OneID product for Thailand e-VOA (Visa On Arrival) that allows 5 Million travellers from 20 countries including China and India to complete the visa process on their mobile through our app. This provides a streamlined immigration process that negates the need for an expensive and time-consuming process when you get off the plane. Additionally, fraud is mitigated with several extra layers of security in the back end including our blockchain (ShareLedger) consensus model that makes all data immutable and all but impossible to hack.” Profit Margins on OneID So how does ShareRing make money from OneID and eVOA? With each application for an eVOA using the OneID module ShareRing will make an undisclosed commission. The e-VOA is available to citizens of 21 different countries and is intended for those who will be holidaying in Thailand and not working in the country. This means that each eVOA will last for a period of around 15 days which effectively means that ShareRing will get commission multiple times from each person travelling to one of the 21 countries listed below: Andorra, Bhutan, Bulgaria, China, Ethiopia, Fiji, India, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Maldives, Malta, Mauritius, Papua New Guinea, Republic of Cyprus Romania, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan The profits on this alone, according to projections, are worth millions of dollars per year to ShareRing, with a healthy growth of about 35% in raw profit over the next 5 years, ultimately netting the company about $1.5 million profit per quarter. The ShareLedger Blockchain Platform ShareRing will utilize the registered intellectual property from the existing KeazACCESS framework (KEAZ: A car sharing company founded by Tim Bos) as well as improving it the blockchain experience in their team. It will consist of fo the primary elements: SharePay (SHRP) – SharePay is the base currency that will allow users of the ShareRing platform to pay for the use of third party assets. ShareToken (SHR) ShareToken (SHR) is the digital utility token that drives sharing transactions to be written to the ShareRing ledger that is managed by the ShareRing platform. Account – This will be a standard account, which such an account being represented by a 24-byte address. The account will contain 4 general fields: SHRP – SharePay token balance SHR – ShareToken balance ASSETS – linked/owned by the account (see below for definition of an Asset) ATTRIBUTES – Any additional attributes that are associated with this account. These attributes may be updated or added by Sharing Economy providers that utilise the ledger such as ID checks by rental companies. These attributes may be ‘global’ (i.e. used by any sharing providers) or ‘local’ (i.e. used by a specific sharing provider). Assets – An asset represents a tangible real-world or digital asset that is being shared, such as a car, a house, industrial machinery, an e-book, and so on. Smart Contracts – Similar to a number of other blockchain platforms, such as Ethereum and NEO, the ShareLedger blockchain will feature highly customisable smart contracts. These Smart Contracts will allow for decentralised autonomous applications that can be attached to an asset and/or account. Every smart contract will be Turing complete, meaning it will have the ability to implement sophisticated logic to manage the sharing of the assets. The smart contracts will be tested and reviewed by ShareRing in a sandbox as well as audited by reputable third-party code auditors prior to implementation. Proof of Stake Consensus ShareRing have chosen the Leased Proof-of-Stake protocol as the consensus algorithm for ShareLedger. This choice is based on the practicality and security benefits evident in the Waves platform. It is also much more cost effective than Proof-of-Work (POW), and will not suffer from the current issues Bitcoin and other POW cryptocurrencies are facing such as scalability and electricity consumption. The ShareRing App At the heart of the ShareRing project lies the ShareRing app: A universal ‘ShareRing’ app is being developed that will allow anyone to easily see and use any sharing services around them. Each partner will have the option of developing a ‘mini’ app within the ShareRing app that will have functionalities specific to that partner. The app will use geolocation-based services to display the ShareRing services that are nearby Social Media Presence Coming from a social media background I feel this is an extremely important area to look into, especially in the crypto world. ShareRing has done an okay job in growing their social media presence however I feel it could be much better. Here is a look at some of the key stats for their online social media presence: Youtube: 191 Subscribers Instagram: 238 Followers Linkedin: 376 Followers Telegram: 6,525 members (very active) Twitter: 2,216 Followers (Fairly regular updates) Facebook: 1,965 Followers Whilst social media may not be a priority just now I feel there has to be a big presence with image-based platforms and video-based platforms. Youtube and Instagram should be made a priority here as it spans all generations: Other News on ShareRing There is a lot of stuff going on at the moment with ShareRing which is what makes it an exciting prospect. Rather than give information on each of them here are some highlights provided by the ShareRing team.: - ShareRing's revolutionary ID management based module OneID. - Worlds first Blockchain based eVOA in place with major Thai company targeting 5 to 10 million travellers from 20 countries. - 2.6 million International Hotels/ Accommodation coming on to the Platform. Lots more to come! - Partnership with HomeAway - 200,000 Activites, Tours and Events added to the ShareRing App - Multi Global Car Sharing Partnerships - 1 Partner Directly Integrating SHR's OneID consisting of 1.2 million Vehicles across 150 Countries - Luxury Car Brand Sharing Platform purely based on SHR - SHR payment system SHRP available in 10% Taxi Terminals in Australia - SHRP available in 10,000 EFTPOS Terminals Australia wide - White Labelling Services incorporating ShareRings revolutionary OneID - 20 Significant Unannounced Partnerships, more to come! - Major Partners include - - BYD (Largest Electric Car Maker in the World) - DJI (Largest Drone Maker in the World) - Keaz (300 locations around the world) - Yogoo EV Car Sharing - MOBI Alliance Member Overview of Positives and Negatives Negatives Social Media and marketing possibly needs to be ramped up in order to bring more awareness to the project. The roadmap and white paper has not been updated recently for 2019/2020 but this I believe is coming soon. Positives With a low market cap project like ShareRing the risk to reward ratio is very good for retail and institutional investors. Technical analysis of current prices, currently at 31 Satoshi, is also very good with resistance levels at 50, 77 and 114 Satoshi which would be nearing its all time high. Referral program will increase the numbers of users that are currently using the site. If ShareRing can capture even a small % of the overall sharing market then success looks assured. There are 20 new announcements coming up and with Tim Bos looking for more partnerships it seems likely that ShareRing will break ATH prices soon. Great long term hold, in my opinion. Realistic Expectations of ROI Short term (4 weeks - 12 weeks) Short term looks great for ShareRing both from a TA point of view and a fundamental point of view. With lots of news still to come out about ShareRing there is not going to be a shortage of fundamentals to drive the price up. From a TA point of view the next line of resistance stands at around the 50 Satoshi level which would complete a massive cup and handle formation from August 24th of this year. After that we are looking at resistances of 77 and 114 to reach near the all time highs which i expect ShareRing to reach going into 2020. Long term (6 Months - 2 Years) If ShareRing can onboard users and keep on making partnerships at the same rate there will be no stopping it. It’s all about onboarding the users and utilising the most powerful marketing tool ever - word of mouth! When a great app is realised with great and useful functionality then it tends to go viral and I am hoping this happens for ShareRing. With a market cap at the moment of just under $6 Million then I don’t think it’s crazy to talk about 1000% increases in the next 2 years and I really believe that is being extremely conservative, given where we think crypto is heading as a whole.

1 - What is Kin? Kin is money for the digital world. It can be earned and spent across an entire ecosystem of applications, thanks to the blockchain. If you don’t know what that means, don’t worry; you don’t have to. Kin is designed to be accessible by a broad mainstream audience- computer science degree not required. By bringing together developers and users of all kinds to build in a shared new digital economy, we can create a more fair playing field; one in which the developers and content creators that build these virtual realities are rewarded based on their contributions, not harvested for their personal data and attention against their will. If you’d like to learn more about Kin, here are some resources to get you started: · Kin Website: https://www.kin.org/ · Kin Whitepaper: https://www.kin.org/static/files/Kin_Whitepaper_V1_English.pdf · The Vision for Kin: https://medium.com/kinblog/the-vision-for-kin-6ee048a3a979 · Announcement of Kin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5le2n230oTk · Introduction to Kin (by u/kyzermf): https://medium.com/hackernoon/introduction-to-kin-universal-virtual-currency-for-apps-ea6464225ffc 2 - Where can I earn & spend Kin? Kin is going live in a growing number of apps. To see which ones, you can check out the Ecosystem Directory below, or keep up with some of these resources: · via Kin Website: https://www.kin.org/kin-apps/ · Apps with Kin (by u/Neliss31) https://appswithkin.com/index.php · Kin Appz (by u/hepays) https://www.kinappz.com/ 3 - Where can I buy Kin? In addition to the ecosystem of apps available to earn Kin, you can also purchase it in larger amounts. It is currently available for purchase on cryptocurrency exchanges listed here: · CoinMarketCap Exchanges List for Kin https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/kin/#markets Note that these are independent organizations and therefore only they can provide guarantees on customer service and experience, please do your due diligence in navigating and utilizing these exchanges. Also note that cryptocurrencies are inherently volatile, trade at your own risk. Kin is money for the digital world, not a stablecoin. 4 - Where can I store Kin? While using Kin inside of apps, make sure to create a backup of your wallet when possible. It is not recommended that you store large amounts of Kin in your user wallets, and instead seek out a more robust solution. There are lots of subtle differences to the kinds of wallets and how to use them, including trade-offs in security vs convenience. Make sure to do your research and be careful when handling your hard-earned Kin: Offline (“Cold”) Storage: · My Kin Wallet https://www.mykinwallet.org/ · Guide: Creating A Paper Wallet for Storing Your Kin Safely Offline (by u/TheRealChaseEB) https://www.reddit.com/KinFoundation/comments/bylk0creating_a_paper_wallet_for_storing_your_kin/ Hardware Wallets: · Ledger Hardware Wallets (works with My Kin Wallet) https://www.ledger.com/ Software Wallets: · Trust Wallet (Mobile) https://trustwallet.com/ · Atomic Wallet (Mobile & Desktop) https://atomicwallet.io/ · Guarda Wallet (Mobile & Desktop) https://guarda.co/ · Magnum Wallet (Web) https://magnumwallet.co/ 5 - Why is the total supply so large? Kin is meant to be transacted by a large number of users in manageable denominations, just like physical money. 6 - Why isn’t Kin on [xyz] exchange? When will it be? A healthy market for developers and users is essential to all stakeholders who want to build a vibrant economy around Kin as a currency. That said, a number of blockers have prevented further listings from happening; for example we needed to first have a unified & functional product and underlying technology before pursuing secondary markets. In addition to this there has been regulatory uncertainty surrounding the listing of digital assets in the United States including Kin specifically, especially since the filing of a misleading legal complaint by the US SEC. Due to this, the Kin Foundation is pressing on in other markets on behalf of the ecosystem to try and facilitate more platforms for everyone to buy & use Kin in their different ways. We do not know when Kin will be listed on exchanges, and anyone who does cannot say due to legal and security agreements. 7 - Is there any update on [Y] announcement? Can you speak on [insert rumor here]? When will we be able to do [Z]? While we believe in maintaining the utmost transparency wherever possible, we will typically announce things as they are ready and report on progress as it becomes pertinent, as to not create unfounded hype and adhere to internal strategies. While it might be tempting to seek constant updates, please remember that answering questions takes time, and everyone is busy working hard to actually build the things we are all excited to see. We will do our best to keep everyone updated on the things they care about. We do not comment on rumors and we may be constricted in our ability to communicate at any given moment on ongoing internal affairs that may fall within certain legal or strategic confines. 8 - How can I contact the developers / support of [insert app name here]? Please refer to the Kin Ecosystem directory below. 9 - How can I contact the Kin Foundation? You can email us at [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) , or if you’d like to DM a specific representative or discuss something in an open setting you can also reach out to us and the community here.

Follow the directions laid out here: https://www.kin.org/migration/ 12 - I heard the SEC is suing Kik, is that true? What does it mean for the Kin Foundation? It’s true. After cooperating with an investigation and multiple attempts to reach an amicable settlement, the SEC filed a disparaging and mischaracterized complaint against Kik for not registering the initial sale of Kin as a security offering. Kik is fighting back. They are in a unique position to take on this case, however, unlike the initial Wells Notice, the Kin Ecosystem Foundation is not named in the complaint. As noted by the Blockchain Association:
When we look at the Kik investigation, we can tell from the Wells Notice that the SEC originally looked at both Kik Interactive and the Kin Foundation. However, when the complaint was issued, it only focused on the offering of Kin in the September 2017 token sale, not Kin in the ecosystem today. The fact that the SEC investigated the Kin Foundation, but decided not to pursue a complaint is good news for developers, platforms, and others in the ecosystem who use these tokens because it separates the question of the token sale from the activities in the ecosystem since then. ("What the SEC-Kik complaint didn’t cover — and why this is good news for the crypto community")
The Kin Foundation sold 1 trillion (10% of total supply) in a token distribution event in September 2017 that was split between a pre-sale (487.80 billion sold) and a public sale (512.20 billion sold). Half of the tokens sold during the pre-sale (244 billion) are subject to a one-year lock-up period. Kik received 3 trillion tokens (30% of total supply), which vested at a rate of 300 billion tokens quarterly for 10 quarters, and the Kin Foundation received 6 trillion (60% of total supply). The Kin Foundation tokens will be distributed through the Kin Rewards Engine, which divides the allocation between network participants and marketing and operational costs for the Kin Foundation (6 trillion Kin has been split into 4.5 trillion for network participants, and 1.5 trillion for marketing and other operational costs of the Kin foundation). Kin Foundation tokens for network participants are schedule to be distributed to the network at a rate of 20% of the remaining balance per year.

Stellar Lumens vs Other Cryptocurrencies • Lumens vs. Bitcoin: Jed McCaleb spoke at Distributed Markets in 2017 about the advantages, but more importantly, the disadvantages of Bitcoin. Listen to the talk here. Jed said, “Bitcoin is this awesome innovation. The first thing it does is converts a real world resource, electricity, into a digital asset. So it takes something from the real world and puts it into the digital realm. The second thing it does is provides immutable public record. It’s basically a database that everyone can see but no one change arbitrarily… That’s great, Bitcoin solves the double spin problem [ of proving possession and transmitting volume]… [However, to fix the problems of bitcoin] you might think well maybe we’ll just kind of keep adding [software] to Bitcoin until we get there, but that’s not really the way software works. You want to have the design from the beginning and solve these simple issues. Bitcoin was designed to be a new currency, it wasn’t really designed to be this unifying universal payment network. So that’s what Stellar does. It solves these three remaining issues.” • Lumens vs. Bitcoin #2: According to wired.com, "Bitcoin mining guzzles energy - and it's carbon footprint just keeps growing." Wired says "Today, each bitcoin transaction requires the same amount of energy used to power nine homes in the US for one day... The total energy use of this web of hardware is huge—an estimated 31 terawatt-hours per year. More than 150 individual countries in the world consume less energy annually. And that power-hungry network is currently increasing its energy use every day by about 450 gigawatt-hours, roughly the same amount of electricity the entire country of Haiti uses in a year." Because Stellar is based on a consensus algorithm rather than mining, it takes much less energy to run the Stellar network. The Poseidon Foundation decided to build their platform on Stellar rather than Ethereum or Bitcoin because of this (twitter source). • Lumens ICO tokens vs. Ethereum ICO tokens: According to Stellar.org, "traditionally, ICO tokens have been issued on the Ethereum network in the form of ERC20 tokens. ERC20 tokens are easy to issue and are infinitely customizable using Ethereum’s smart contracting language. However, recent events have highlighted and exacerbated some weaknesses of the network, including slow transaction processing times for the network during ICOs and increasingly expensive gas prices (by fiat standards) for transactions and smart contract execution. Moreover, many organizations require only basic tokens; they adopt the risk of Ethereum’s Turing complete programming language without taking advantage of many of its benefits." "While Ethereum has the most expressive programming capabilities, we believe Stellar is the best choice for ICOs that do not require complex smart contracts. Stellar’s primary goal is to facilitate issuing and trading tokens, especially those tied to legal commitments by known organizations, such as claims on real-world assets or fiat currency." • Stellar vs. Ethereum #2: The median transaction time on Stellar is 5 seconds, compared to approximately 3.5 minutes on Ethereum (source). Stellar has a negligible transaction fee (.00001 XLM ~= $0.0000002) with no gas fee for computation, while depending on the complexity of the computation, the median cost for a transfer on the Ethereum network is $0.094. Security: While both Stellar and Ethereum run on a decentralized network, the Stellar network has fewer security pitfalls. Stellar uses atomic transactions comprised of simple, declarative operations while Ethereum uses turing complete programming capabilities which produces less auditable code and greater risk of exploitable vulnerabilities(source). Recently, a security flaw in the Ethereum network froze millions of dollars. According to Mobius ariticle written by David Gobaud, "On November 6, 2017, Github user deveps199 'accidentally' triggered a bug in Parity, a popular Ethereum mult-sig wallet, that froze more than $152 million in Ether across 151 addresses. The bug impacted several token sales including Polkadot, which has had ~$98 million out of its recent $145 million sale frozen." "Mobius had none of its ongoing pre-sale Ether frozen because we do not trust Ethereum’s Smart Contract based multi-sig wallets given the vast Turing complete attack surface and did not use one. Security broadly is one of the main reasons the MOBI token that powers the DApp Store is a Stellar Protocol token and not an Ethereum token." • Lumens vs. Ripple: According to Wall Street Bitcoin Exchange, "Many investors like to compare the company [Stellar] to Ripple, and there are a lot of similarities, being that some of the founders worked on the Ripple team. In what can now be looked at as another blockchain development drama that plays out on chat boards and in interviews all across the globe. Stellar declared they fixed Ripple’s problems with their hard fork, however, Ripple has failed to admit to any of the flaws in its design that the Stellar team has pointed out." The article concludes by saying, "We Choose XLM Over XRP For 2018. That is why we are going with Stellar Lumens over Ripple in our portfolio for the rest of 2017 and 2018. After holding Ripple for a long time this year, it just never seems to make the big break like other names with bigger market caps like Bitcoin Cash, Dash, and Litecoin have. While we are holding on most all our larger market caps, we feel that Stellar Lumens will be one of the break out coins for 2018." . . Conclusion The stellar.org team is doing an amazing job making partnerships and pioneering the use of blockchain technology for various types of transactions. What we are seeing is a new technology that can actually be used to solve real-world problems. As a community, we need to continue supporting Stellar and we will quickly see it power transactions across the world. What are your thoughts about Stellar? What do you see in the future of Stellar?

Following the latest statement released by Danny Brewster, CEO of Neo & Bee Ltd, we, the personnel involved at an executive level within Neo and Bee, feel it is appropriate and justified to make the following statement regarding the mistruths and outright lies being fed to investors, creditors and the public. In the interests of preserving the potential that the company can be turned around, we had remained silent on the matter up to this point. The senior management team would like to extend their deepest regrets for the events that have transpired with Neo & Bee. Every member of the team was wholly devoted to the cause of making the company a success and dedicated their every hour to this cause. We equally regret our inability to rectify the situation and protect the profit shareholders and actual shareholders (Danny Brewster). We were misled and the truth was obfuscated from us under so many layers, that combined with our workload, proved enough to allow the CEO to run rampant, without accountability and with full control of all the bitcoins, until it was too late. After a lot of silence, and possibly after he was informed by the media of the arrest warrant, he posted the “full” picture on Reddit (http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/232v5n/the_full_picture_from_danny_brewste) The following are the facts witnessed and attestable by senior management at Neo & Bee Ltd. It is most of what some of us have personally testified with all existing documentation, to the local authorities. Anyone willing to verify these should please contact them. Danny Brewster is the sole Director, shareholder and CEO of the group of companies. He was solely responsible for raising approximately 9.400 bitcoins prior to hiring any employees through crowdfunding on multiple platforms. Once we assumed our duties, we repeatedly made requests regarding transparency of bitcoins in the company’s possession so that the CFO could perform his duties. The CEO never divulged specific documented information regarding the IPVO bitcoins and amounts. To this date, and unless further information is revealed by Danny Brewster, the CFO is unable to account for the majority of bitcoins allegedly expended. Danny Brewster was the sole custodian of funds raised from the IPVO and despite repeated requests from both the CFO and Compliance and Risk Management Officer, he consistently deflected and delayed any attempts to have the coins witnessed or accounted for - increasing concerns leading up to the events of March 19th. Tuesday 18th of March Mr. Brewster told a member of the management team that the company had 5000 Bitcoins remaining. This directly goes against what was said the following day. Mr. Brewster called a meeting for all of the senior management team on the 19th of March in which he informed us that the company was down to its last 140 bitcoins. Mr. Brewster proceeded to give a very rough and incoherent breakdown of where the funds had been spent. After revealing the lack of funds to his employees he went on to raise the possibility of selling more “profit shares” to increase liquidity. All employees sternly objected to this and the idea has since not been raised since. In defence of the sudden announcement on the 19th of March that the company only had 140 bitcoins remaining, Mr. Brewster stated in front of the same people that he had mis-accounted for 5000 of his own bitcoins, bitcoins he thought he owned but after “checking” a wallet, realised had actually spent them all. How Mr. Brewster’s personal finances are relevant to the financial situation the company found itself in is highly questionable. Should Mr. Brewster still have owned these 5000 bitcoins, the company would nonetheless be in the same situation, albeit with a potential credit line. Mr. Brewster claims varying amounts between 1400 and 1700 of the company’s bitcoins were lost in We-exchange/Bitfunder. Mr. Brewster’s claims that none of the company’s coins were lost in Mt. Gox directly contradict information given on the 19th of March to the whole of the management team, that we in fact lost 2480 bitcoins in Mt. Gox. We are aware Mr. Brewster now claims 369 of his own funds were lost in Mt. Gox, but again this has no relevance on the company’s finances. His personal investment in the company (claimed in an older newspaper interview) varied upwards to 6 million (assuming Euro). There is no logical trace of this investment or where it was spent. At the same time, it appears to us, that he customarily made payments through his Bitstamp account to creditors, and many of us have multiple indications that he was trading there and in every other major exchange. When asked, he always replied that it was his personal holdings. There are conflicting statements from him, which indicate that he never separated the company funds from his personal. Bitcoins lost in the exchanges were at some points reported to be his, and at other the company’s. Mr. Brewster came to the office for one hour on Thursday the 20th and one hour on Friday the 21st. On Thursday the 20th it was made very clear to him that the whole of the management team wished Danny to be removed as the CEO. Danny agreed to step down after transferring control of the company to investors. He claimed he was flying to the UK to speak with investors the following week. After leaving on Monday the 24th, no one was able to get in contact with him until the 28th when he wrote to us that due to threats against his daughter’s life he should remain silent, and in England (despite his daughter being in Cyprus). The supposed threat email is dated 26th of March, while Mr. Brewster has been out of contact long before that. We mentioned this claimed threat to the local authorities here on the 28th as well, since any potential threat of any form should not be taken lightly. They said that this was the first time they heard of it, from us. Danny claims this alleged threat also caused him to decide to transfer the company to an administrator for restructuring or liquidation. Despite considering this before leaving, as he said to us, he only settled on it after said threat. On the 31st, we sent him a demand letter requesting he returns and give explanations regarding his absence in the face of dire problems with the company, and the brand decomposing each day he is away and the company is unfunded. The deadline expired on 18:30 Cyprus time, April the 2nd, Wednesday. He posted his reply on the morning of the same day, causing an outrage of the personnel and management that were in the office, still waiting for any sort of coherent response and a way forward. No documentation regarding the bitcoins he supposedly has accounted, has reached the personnel of the company, despite the numerous demands from us, and claims from him that they “are all accounted for”. Claiming that the threats may have originated within the company is simply adding insult to injury. The people that worked ceaselessly and tirelessly over long hours and weekends, the same people that said they would go unpaid for months when he said he had no more bitcoins, the same people that tried to save his brand, willingly working for an increasingly unlikely wage while he was away, were suspect for threats in his books. For all of the above reasons, upon reading his last response, everyone in the company filed our resignations to be forwarded to the local Registrar of Companies, in absence of the CEO. A recommendation to halt trading was sent to Mr. Brewster on the 27th. The recommendation was sent to hinder any insider trading activity, considering that it was unlikely that the information about the financial situation of the company could be contained, if he remained in hiding. We were not contacted before trading reinitiated on Havelock on the 4th. Mr. Brewster has personally sold bitcoins to local Cypriots and staff, and remained the personal custodian of these bitcoins. These bitcoins are now unaccounted for, and the management team was left to face these creditors who we didn’t even know had bought bitcoins from Mr. Brewster. We invite any more that have a documented sale of bitcoins from Mr. Brewster and placed under his custody, to present said evidence to the authorities. Also, contrary to Mr. Brewster’s claims that he left the island with none of the company’s money, he did in fact and still does hold the company’s remaining 140 Bitcoins (if that’s what’s left).The 140 BTC were never delivered to cover any debt or running expenses despite him being asked and confirming this verbally to all present. His claim later on, was that his lawyer had advised him not to send the coins. To this day we can only assume he is still in possession of these remaining coins. He is also in possession of personal bitcoins of two employees (~50 bitcoins), as well as at least the bitcoins of multiple other people who bought from him as mentioned above, and entrusted their coins to him for safekeeping. While we now know that one of his cars has changed owners Mercedes and the Bentley is in a car dealer with other plates (probably sold as well), he has remained silent, despite having clearly said that potential funds from selling the cars would go to paying salaries and creditors. Which brings us here. We will remain in contact with the community and authorities to clear this situation out to its full extent. This was the doing of one person in full control of a business’ funds, not technology and certainly not Bitcoin’s. What we face, is in its core, a corporate governance failure, pervasive in conventional businesses even more often than it is in Bitcoin businesses. Contrary to conventional businesses, where regulation is the only response, the tools are available here, to ensure in the future that these things don’t happen.

A lot of people are talking about this project and as a potential investor i decided to run some checks on it and see if it's worth. Everyone is pumped about it but after a closer look I'm not sure it's worth its price. Therefore let's have a look at the facts : Medicalchain.com LTD The company was incorporated on 28/06/2017 under the name MEDICALCHAIN.IO LTD as a private company limited by ordinary shares. Three directors are appointed: Mr. Mohammed Tayeb, Mr. Abdullah Dafir Albeyatti and Mr. Bara Mustafa. The initial shareholdings (total of 999) are split in 3 equal parts: 1/3 (333) owned by Mr. Abdullah Dafir Albeyatti 1/3 (333) owned by Mr. Bara Mustafa 1/3 (333) owned by XL CAPITAL VENTURES LTD (owned by Mohammed Tayeb and Omar Tayeb) At 24/07/2017 the number of shares is increased to 1332, with XL CAPITAL VENTURES LTD holding 666 ordinary shares. At 13/08/2017 XL CAPITAL VENTURES LTD cease to be a shareholder, with MR Mohammed Tayeb now holding the 666 shares previously held by XL Capital. At 14/08/2018 MEDICALCHAIN.IO LTD becomes MEDICALCHAIN.COM LTD Below you can find a bit about every member of the team starting with the top dogs. MOHAMMED TAYEB :: Director MR MOHAMMED TAYEB description taken from medicalchain.com. Mr. Mohammed Tayeb is a Partner at Hearn Capital Limited. Mr. Tayeb co-founded ReadyCache. In 2010, he headed up the development side of morethan.com. During his time there, Mr. Tayeb architected and developed a system to drive down online fraud, saving its over £40 million. Prior to that, he ran a boutique consultancy business in the field of mobile web and application development. Together with his brother and Co-Founder, they own over eight games and utility applications on the Apple and Google Play apps market, with over 10 million downloads. Mr. Tayeb is an internet entrepreneur, investor, and founder of several technology and e-commerce start-ups. As well being a Partner in Hearn Capital, he is also a Non-Executive Director on the board of Salic. Mr. Tayeb specializes in bringing together technological efficiencies to the business world. He has a degree in e-commerce from Brunel University and an Executive MBA from the University of Oxford. I’ve done an extensive background check and noticed that Mr Mohammed Tayeb has had his fingers in many pies since 2010 being appointed director in and out of more than 15 companies. I am not sure if I would trust him with my money as it looks like he cant commit to something for a longer period of time. Below you can find part of his work history: MONSTER TECHNOLOGIES LTD :: Director since 9 January 2017 :: Active - no information found HEARN CAPITAL LIMITED :: Director since 21 January 2016 :: Active
Hearn Capital was incorporated in January 2015 by a group of key technology investors and operators. It aims to provide early stage and growth funding to exciting companies with disruptive IP within the data analytics sector - data mining, dashboarding, predictive analytics and reporting.
Investments of £1.2 mil with a creditor balance of £1.2 mil.
The company is owned from background by Influential (Holdings) Limited owning more than 50% of shares with a total equity of £1.7 mil. Basically Influential Holding has lent Hearn Capital 1.2 million to invest in different companies. To me it looks like Mohammed has no skin in this as Influential Holdings Limited is owned by Mr Andrew Richardson and Mr John Edward Simpson. GOODSHAW CAPITAL MANAGEMENT LTD :: Director since 6 January 2016 :: Company still active Dormant company aka not carrying any business activity DYNISTICS LIMITED :: Director since 03/03/2015 :: Company still active Acquisition of Dynistics https://www.dynistics.com/ :: a software company that Hearncapital bought in 2015 which counts colleges, NHS Foundation Trusts and recruitment agencies as clients.

The business was never launched, and instead was sold to Pepperstone in late 2015. Pepperstone has suspended trading for clients in its UK subsidiary as the company is making some changes to its management structure and processes, and bringing on some additional resources in its UK office. To comply with its FCA obligations Pepperstone has had to temporarily suspend trading in the UK until all of the changes are complete and the additional resources are in place. http://www.checkdirector.co.uk/directomohammed-tayeb/https://www.leaprate.com/forex/brokers/pepperstone-swaps-phil-horner-mohammed-tayeb-board-uk-fx-relaunch/ Some other companies he had been involved with: • Director House of Choice Stores LTD :: 2013 – 2016 Disolved • Director XI Capital Ventures LTD :: 2014-2017 Disolved • Director UR Trading :: 2002 – 2010 Disolved • Director LOVEFRAGRANCE INTERNATIONAL LTD :: 2012 – Dissolved 2013 • Director DAR FIRST LIMITED :: 2007 – Dissolved 2011 • Director BLACKSTONE E-COMMERCE LIMITED :: 2011 – Dissolved 2013 All this information can be found at https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/ . You just lookup his name or company names and access the records. ** Mr. Abdullah Dafir Albeyatti :: Director** Enthusiastic doctor with a wide range of skills and interests. Currently completing my general practice training in Leeds. Previous surgical trainee in the London Deanery. My ambition is to continue improving as a doctor and to develop myself in other fields of medicine and aesthetic training. He is also the founder of dischargesummary.co.uk. The website is described as a website designed to streamline and lessen the work load placed on junior doctors by standardising the content of discharge summaries produced when a patient is discharged from hospital. This platform has allowed hospital departments to establish quality assurance and accurately produce reliable discharge summaries to effectively commute between hospital and community medicine. I checked the website and 3 out of 6 features are under development. The site is now redirected to https://ds.medicalchain.com/ Mr. Bara Mustafa :: DirectoCTO There is no mention of Mr Bara Mustafa on the mediclchain.com which is weird as he is one of the directors and shareholder. It looks like Mr Bara occupation is CTO, which surely would be of interested to the public. Mr Bara is also a OwneDirector of ENETIDEAS LTD since 2010 rendering services as IT Consultant. https://www.enetideas.com :: the website is not functional, none of the products links are working. Jay Povey :: Blockchain developer at medicalchain His introductory linkedin line : Self taught programmer, programming for 7+ years. BA(Hons) from Buckinghamshire New University. Since January I joined Medicalchain to help create a world class blockchain platform for electronic health records. Previously worked on forex trading algorithm using deep learning / pattern recognition techniques. I have had a keen interest in blockchain technology over the past 2 years. I have been learning the ins and outs of the technology and Im very excited about the future of blockchain. I see great potential for revolutionizing the way businesses are run. He started coding for Medicalchain in 2017 previously working for 2 years for one of Mohammed companies ReadyCache which was dissolved. I’m not sure about his experience developing “on forex trading algorithm” as at the previous company ReadyCache they were “building software that is making a difference to webmasters and large companies. We accelerate our customers’ websites, save our customers money and enhance user experience” Before ReadyCache he worked for a college as an IT technicial and e-learning advisor. Also I’m not sure what to make out of his facebook profile, he comes across a bit weird. Also on one of his facebook posts he was asking where you can buy bitcoin in may 2017 but on his summary : “I have had a keen interest in blockchain technology over the past 2 years. I have been learning the ins and outs of the technology and Im very excited about the future of blockchain” https://www.facebook.com/jaypov Robert Miller :: Director Of Business Development Looks like his CV is somehow better than the rest, again worked alongside Mohammed at Goodshaw Capital for 1 year. Freelanced a few blockchain projects so I would say he is the one who will drive the project as longs as the money are coming in. Linkedin https://www.linkedin.com/in/bertcmiller Natalie Furness :: Communication Director She has a background in healthcare industry, namely working as a physiotherapist since 2010. She also lectured for Physiotherapy and Sports Exercise Scientist students at Birmingham University and currently working as a project manager for a company offering solutions to the occupational health sector. The rest of the team occupies either associates or consultants positions for a short period of time 2-3 months. To sum it up : the initial £5000 pre-ICO investment is way way exaggerated based on the fact that there is nothing to show for at the present moment, just ideas. Mr Mohammed has started 15+ companies and most of them are dissolved which doesn't sound very promising. On top of that he now owns half the company whereas initially the company was split in thirds. Their CTO is not mentioned anywhere on the website but he is a shareholder in the company. I would not recommend investing in the project right now and I would wait to see if the project would ever gain traction and materialize. Below I listed some of the videos related to Medicalchain at different conferences / interviews : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4Bc4RiugMg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6WbFMt6Ic4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NT-vRXZ2k-o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=devzmfzsh7E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SA91OAaNZUo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_OdMREOpBI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebP5ZzQView If you want me to run any other checks on other upcoming ICO please let me know.
Golem - We include many more features, like AI marketplace & skill rewards SONM - We include many more features, like AI marketplace & skill rewards DeepBrain - They are a smart contracts platform for AI algorithms + distributed infrastructure; no Intellectual Property side for skill rewards iExec - Only a token on ETH blockchain vs. Own blockchain with mining & skills rewards IAGON - We include many more features, like AI marketplace & skill rewards - personal note, that project is unlikely to be built because of wrong ideas in White Paper
We introduced Skill Rewards. In current terminology, the closest you can find in the industry are patent royalties.In essence, the first user to teach the system a new skill (technique, algorithm) will gain rewards when that skill is used by others in the future.The user willing to run anything on the Kaasy network will have to pay for both the processing time and skill requirements.
Most of the team has been involved in creating a crypto-exchange & trading website,www.ldvbank.com, after trading considerable amounts, some of us even since 2009.We have been mining ETH based coins since 2016, in our own above 200 rigs farm.
Succesful completion of the KAASY.AI project will have a disruption effect in the Human Resources market, where many repetitive jobs will be automated, replicating techniques between companies and industries. This will free many to find more fullfilling employment.
The MiningOS is a Linux based OS targeted at crypto mining individuals and farms. The next milestones are oriented to both consumer and general industry, aiming to make Kaasy a go-to personal assistant for the general public. The last milestone, RoboticsOS, makes the connection between the virtual and physical worlds, enabling Kaasy programs and skills to be applied to manual labor jobs, using different robots as End-Effectors.
Yes, we offer brand ambassadors the chance to earn revenue promoting Kaasy - revenues range between 4% and 10%, depending on the total amount brought in by each ambassador. Payment is at the end of the ICO.
Total Circulating supply won't be known until the end result of the ICO;We started with 200M at the start of the smart contract, for team, marketing & other purposes, and the next 300M represent the 60% offered for investment.
After the Token Sale, one of our main priorities will be to list the token on main exchanges. Our tokens are Ethereum ERC20-based and exchanges implementation should be smooth. We will list the token for sure on our trading platformwww.ldvbank.comand also onCOSS.iowhere our advisor Andrei Popescu is cofounder.
Bitcoinus - Quickest Blockachain System for Payment Processing
Have you known a Blockchain platform that make fast payment? This is about it. Bitcoinus, found online at Bitcoinus.io, promises to transfer bitcoin payments in two seconds. Find out how it works with us. Bitcoinus is a payment platform that claims to be able to transfer bitcoin payments in two seconds. The platform uses “cutting edge payment processing” techniques to allow you to receive Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and over 100 major cryptocurrencies.The network is powered by the Ethereum blockchain. The goal is to create a global e-commerce solution. Typically, today’s bitcoin payment processing platforms charge a fee of around 1%. Bitcoinus BIS, on the other hand, charges a fee of 0.5%. There are no ongoing monthly fees. Users enjoy free sign ins, free payouts, and instant currency exchanges. The token sale for biu tokens is underway from January to May 2018. How Dose Bitcoinus(BIS) Work? Bitcoinus aims to offer fast, easy payment solutions using crypto as a medium of transfer. The platform can process transactions in 2 seconds. Bitcoinus charges just a 0.5% fee along the way – much less than the 1% charged by other cryptocurrency processors and significantly less than platforms like PayPal and credit cards, which charge fees of 3.5% and higher. The platform will also offer a clean and flexible API that developers of any online business can use to develop their own solutions with integrated crypto payments. Plugins will be available for all major commerce platforms, including WordPress, Shopify, and others. The goal is to integrate 100 altcoins within the first year of operation. Bitcoinus will mostly cater to online businesses, allowing all businesses and retail customers to buy, store, spend, and receive crypto assets. Other features of the platform include a merchant reputation system and blockchain-based KYC. Ultimately, if you’re an online business that frequently transfers money between global currencies, then Bitcoinus could help you save a significant amount of money every year on transaction fees. Bitcoinus(BIS)-The Team Bitcoinus is led by co-founders Tomas Mičkauskas and Xavier Murtza. Tomas has 6 years of experience in trading on the Frankfurt, London, and New York stock exchanges. He’s also experienced with startups and project management, and has successfully advised multimillion dollar ICOs. Xavier, meanwhile, has successfully developed an international credit management business with offices in London, Manila, and Singapore, and has 17 years of experience in credit management and credit risk solutions. The company is headquartered in London, UK under the name Bitus Ltd. Now Its ICO Time The Bitcoinus ICO is proceeding in stages First Sale (Ends on February 22): 1 biu=0.001 ETH, 8 million tokens are available at a 47% discount Second Sale (February 23 to March 23) 1 biu = 0.001 ETH, 17 million tokens available at a 40% discount Third Sale (March 24 to April 15) 1 biu = 0.001 ETH, 15 million tokens available at a 30% discount Fourth Sale (April 16 to May 1) 1 biu = 0.001 ETH, 7 million tokens available at a 15% discount Fifth Sale (May 2 to May 10) 1 biu = 0.001 ETH, 3 million tokens available at a 5% discount Any unsold tokens will be burnt by a smart contract. When we speak about the increasing performance of online sales industry there is one important aspect to have in mind. Online retail clients have variety of choices today: the supply of products and, in some cases, services in online markets has overtaken the one of their traditional rivals. However, there is another point – the increasing competition between merchants. Now any e-shop that wants to draw a decent amount of customers not only has to maintain the highest business and customers service standards but also needs to find a way to overtake its competitors. One of the best ways to stand out is to adopt the cryptocurrency payments. Only a couple of years ago it seemed unlikely as there was a limited availability of both – cryptocoins and customers who could spend them. Now the situation has changed – more and more internet users invest in and use Bitcoin, Ethereum and other blockchain-based currencies. It may seem to be a great chance for defining progressive positioning in the market. However, it is not that easy to accept cryptocurrencies due to the infrastructure’s underdevelopment. We are looking at completely different sources for online payments in 5 years. In this considerably short period of time many people will switch to cryptocurrencies instead of what they use now. There is a number of reasons to do so especially for businesses. It is not only because of the low cost or speed Bitcoinus Will Change the Future of Online Payments Bitcoinus is a company that will soon introduce the crypto payment processing service to virtually any online businesses. It will make all types of cryptocurrencies available to retail customers wishing to buy any item online with their bank cards. The solution is being developed with simplicity in mind. Any retail customer will no longer need to go through long and puzzling process of buying cryptocurency thinking about the ways of safe storage and other details. All of the most necessary and market sensitive aspects are covered with Bitcoinus online payment processing. The merchant reputation system includes the new payment approach. All online businesses will be rated according to their performance level and transparency, allowing the system ensure commercial trust between the two parties. The solution will change the market the day it enters the world of payments. In the digital world traditional currencies are becoming obsolete as the world of technology moves on. Bitcoin, Ethereum and all the other cryptocurrencies show that the change is long the awaited and necessary in order to make money market more efficient and up to date. The whole world is completely the obsessed with the idea of secure payments, which no third party can the interrupt. Bitcoinus(BIS)-The Conclusion Bitcoinus aims to be “the pioneer of online crypto processing”. The platform will charge a 0.5% fee when processing payments. Users can pay in “biu tokens” to lower fees even further. Meanwhile, the party receiving the money can accept payments in bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, EUR, USD, and other popular transaction methods.
Our most recent AMA with Marcin Zduniak discussing the latest technological developments at trade.io
AMA with CTO Marcin Zduniak We conduct regular AMA sessions on our official Telegram channel. Join us to ask questions and get the latest news and updates from trade.io. Telegram: https://t.me/TradeToken Marcin, Hello everybody! Q. Are we still on time to get FX, API and App by end of the year (i.e. less than 4 weeks from now)? OK, heavy topics just from the beginning, Let's start with FX: We have an internal commitment for a specific date: Dec. 27th and dedicated team works tirelessly to make it happen. No delays or unexpected events so far, we are on track although it is very tight timeframe, but...Please note this is Phase 1 of a 2 Phase launch. Phase 1 being FX being available to trade.io exchange clients only and crypto only deposits. Phase 2 which we’re expecting completion in early Q1 of 2019 will have stand-alone sites for our FCA & OffShore Entities, TIO Markets UK Ltd. & TIO Markets Ltd... These stand-alone entities will allow clients to register directly from the site and will allow funding in crypto and a variety of fiat methods. Additionally, there will be a complete affiliate program offering top-tier CPA programs with state of the art tracking software. So, back to the topic, mobile experience next: So, you already know we work on a couple of mobile products: iOS and Android mobile native trading applications and also on the mobile-friendly version of our exchange website. The most significant changes related to the mobile-friendly website are planned for the release this Monday and there will be most likely 1-2 subsequent releases improving some smaller UI experience defects on the subsequent Mondays… As for the mobile native apps: iOS is planned to be dev-complete and ready for internal testing next week. We are planning to involve some of our dedicated community members in the Beta testing phase as soon as the app code is signed off by our security experts after the review of the potential security holes… As for the Android, it will come around 2 weeks later, but we still believe we will be dev ready this year. It means that the iOS version should be released to the public by the end of this year and Android in early January after all the alpha, beta and security tests are concluded. Q. Hey Marcin, recently I saw something new in trade.io exchange. It had smooth and have many tuning actions for it. It is ok. But I think our developing speed in trade.io should more rapidly. Update maybe more twice of week and finally result must be perfect. Do use end users are tester for this new main functions: FX, app. A. I disagree, for now. With the size of our team, once-a-week releases seem to be balanced. We can focus the whole 1 week on the delivery and one day on the shipment. If we are going to ship more often we will produce less in this time. Some companies practice daily shipment -- it might be something we will consider some time in 2019, but at this moment it does not really make sense here. Marcin: “You asked about API too, let me finish with your first question please. Some of our institutional partners and liquidity providers already use our API interface since a couple of months, but this was not yet the API we intended to open for the general consumption…” Xalat: “Exactly. Volume is mostly driven by bots, hence APIs are important” Marcin: “We have dedicated team who worked on the trading API and also market data feeds API that we could offer widely. The API is ready, we are now conducting functional tests, load tests and security penetration tests on it…” Q: When can we start using the exchange from the algo-trading tools that would require robust API access? A. The plan is to have all the test steps concluded early next week and if no serious defects found we should be able to release it in the production environment in another 1-2 weeks, i.e prior to the end of this year. We’ve take meticulous care and time to ensure we’ll be offering one of if not the best API solution available, and hope to attract quite a few institutions with its robust functionality. Q. What kind of query/minute can we expect as limits? In market fetching and throwing orders please? A. We are targeting to be able to sustain 100 txs/s for now with our current load tests. But some further scalability improvements are also in making (bit the delivery date early next year). Q. Any news on the fiat trading platform? A. We are in the technical preparation phase of this project, as the business discussions already concluded. No specific release date yet, but it should not take too long (definitely early Q1). Q. Are you planning for bug bounty programs or acknowledgements for reporting security vulnerabilities? A. No formalized bounty program planned so far, but fair security vulnerability disclosures of serious security issues to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) will be definitely appreciated and rewarded. Q. Would different platforms have different websites with various measures of KYC procedures, or will there be a uniform account system behind? A. Can't answer to this yet, compliance related topics to Phase 2 are not 100% ironed out yet. Q. Do you user’s end users as tester for this new main functions: FX, app. A. We have a dedicated QA team, so this is for the manual tests. But we are also concluding work on our. A automation extensive tests suite. It should make our future deploys much smoother and of higher quality, more issues should be discovered before the actual change is deployed to the live servers. Q. Will we start seeing more ERC20 tokens soon? They don't require as much work as the separate blockchains if I've understood correctly? A. Correct, another 4-5 is going to be added next week. Q. Would the market maker bot start working again after the upcoming of APIs? A. Market maker already works, using our private api, no plans to change it in the near future. But the new api will be used by the other 3rd party partners and potentially by other market makers. Q. Marcin what is your plan in relation to the Bitcoin Cash split? A. Generally, exchanges took a side either on the SV or ABC fork. Our initial plan before the fork even happened was to support one or the other depending on which chain would prevail, but we never took any side... Right now it is clear both forks are here to stay, hence the decision is to support both. Before we open the deposits and withdrawal options we need to implement replay attack protection to our internal wallet addresses, as the respective forks did not implement it as part of their own code changes. It is not really something that we wanted to do, as we preferred to focus on the new coins implementation, but as the fork happened we have no option, we took some of our engineering’s off from the other chains integration and work related to the replay attack protection is ongoing. We will most likely resume trading next week, and open deposits and withdrawals for both forked chains in the following week. Though don’t treat it yet a firm commitment. Q. Besides the new stuff, how is the rework of the older code coming along? A. We are not dumping anything, nothing like that. But more automated tests and more code coverage clearly shows where the defects are and where the team focus has to be put. It is an ongoing process, what will in fact never ends (refactoring of the code is part of the development process). Q. How about a simple community voting tool which Tokens / Coins to add to the Exchange? A. Yes, we’re going to be implementing this, once we’ve put all the “basic” chains and additional ERC-20 tokens that are currently missing from the exchange. Q. what about Partner With Fund To Allow US Participation in Liquidity Pool? A lot of Americans waiting for this! A. That’s not necessarily a tech issue, legal will handle this, and obviously everyone will be advised accordingly Q. Can you comment and market predictions Q1 2019 encryption? A. Any market comments, views, will be coming from Dave Hannigan, our Chief Dealer who in addition to his daily market commentary, will start popping onto Telegram from time to time. Q. Besides the new stuff, how is the rework of the older code coming along? Very good, we’ve brought on quite a few blockchain dev’s that have been working through the previous code, and much has been revised respectively. Q. What was the reason for fast-tracking MakerDAO Implementation? It really wasn’t fast tracked per se, but rather part of our weekly deployments. I’m comfortable enough now with the exchange to be more aggressive in adding tokens, and Dai was one of the tokens that we were able to add for the 10th. Q. In your opinion, what would be the best addition to the product to attract the average Joe - FIAT currency or the mobile app? I don’t believe there is any ONE thing that will attract the average Joe, but rather a combination of everything. The average Joe, in our opinion, is looking for the most well rounded exchange offering the most features and configurability. Hence the reason we’re focusing on implementing much as I have discussed.
Hexabot: Just Released Auto-Trading Bot HYIP, Pays Hourly Compounded Interest, 22+% Weekly ROI; Withdraw Anytime
10/30 UPDATE: I have created a wesite that reviews all the features of Hexbot in detail. Anyone interested can check out https://hexabotreview.com. Older Post: I'd like to share with everyone an interesting, newly released coin auto-trading bot called Hexabot. The developer behind the auto-trading bot is from the UK called Peter Shepherd (Hexabot Crypto Trading LTD). While the code is not open source, the bot is open for all to try. They are giving out free 0.0001btc as a newcomer welcome bonus just for registering a free account (no investment or deposit required). They also have a free AD-FREE daily bitcoin faucet (If anything, just use its nice faucet for free bit - screenshots below). In fact, the entire site looks super clean, modern, and is completely AD-FREE (surprising, huh?) For those that don't want to read my detailed, initial review below, you can check out the platform directly here. The reason I wrote this post is to...
Ask: has anyone here heard of this bot and/or the dev/company behind this bot?
Share my initial experience actually swing trading with 0.0005btc on this bot.
Whois shows the domain hexabot.top was registered on 9/8/2017. In short, the bot pays hourly compounded interest and currently has three modes depending on how you want to trade: Bot Trading Modes They have three auto-trading bot modes to choose from with different ROI's:
Sounds too good to be true? What are the risks? While everything sounds spectacular, I am partly skeptical the ROI can be always so high and/or consistent. No investment exists without risk - no "bot" can win 100%. Furthermore, can this be an amazing scam or Ponzi scheme? Only time will tell. At least its faucets are risk free... On the other hand, I do know auto-trading bots do exist and can be profitable. What do you all think?
