Recap of 2018 Biggest ICO ROIs

Exchanges | ICO News | Reviews | Technical Analysis | Wallets

The ICO market is a highly volatile terrain, being that there are new ICOs being put out constantly and they are all in competition in every sector there is for investors to choose. It can be easily said that ICO investment is a sort of a gamble since investors buy into the ICO either through fiat currency or preexisting digital tokens in the hope that the ICO will perform exceptionally well in the future and provide great returns. ICOs have been particularly useful for startups that are avoiding the vigorous traditional funding process stipulated by banks or venture capitalists.

In this case, ICOs are very much like IPOs only difference is that with ICOs, it is purely a hoe and pray whereas with IPOs, the investors have a better understanding of the well set up venture that they are putting their money into and they actually own part of the business they are investing into in form of shares. As such, IPOs are regulated, centralized and are mainly for the purpose of advancing the operations of the venture. As for ICOs, the tokens being issued have no inherent value, are largely unregulated and function on a decentralized blockchain platform.

The best and actual only benefit of ICOs is their potential for amazing returns. And they have indeed made a lot of millionaires from investors. In 2017 for example, there were over 435 successful ICOs that raised about $5.6 billion, 25% of which was raised by the top ten ICOs in that list. Here are the best performing ICOs of 2018 that gave the best returns on investment.

These ICOs are termed as best performing because of the return of investments that they have brought about. It does not however negate the probability of risk that is basically the trademark of the cryptocurrency market. It is however my opinion that for those of you who are interested in investing into crypto, it is easier to start with more stable coins like Ethereum and Bitcoin, then diversify as you learn more about trading and the potential to make good on your investments so as to take intelligent risks.

There are quick steps to follow where one is interested in ICO investments:

  • Sign up on a digital currency exchange.
  • Buy and stock up on the currency that supports the ICO.
  • Once you have stocked up as much as you intend to invest, transfer the holdings into a digital wallet that supports the ICO you are investing in.
  • Make sure to access the whitepaper that outlines everything regarding the ICO and be certain that you are able to get to the ICO’s official website.
  • Once you have entered the token sale, register for the ICO by providing your public wallet address as required by the site.
  • Follow the ICO buying instructions on launch day, where at the end you will receive the ICO cryptocurrency at the specified rates offered.
  • Once you have received the tokens, you can exchange them for USD or other digital currencies if you please.

There are no specifics to locating upcoming ICOs since there are new ones coming up almost constantly. However, having online curiosity or using cryptocurrency bots is a good option where they have key words like ICOs or crypto news for example on their social features to give you information on ICOs. There is a site like ICO Watchlist that allows you to look at new ICOs or news of preexisting ones and the trading prices as well as if they are viable options or potential scams.

 

Virtual reality and entertainment, participation is open to Alive Casino ICO

The progress of the crypto economic and financial ecosystem continues, with the consequent tokenization of traditional sectors. The most fashionable technology at the global level together with AI continues its course. The Online Casino compatible with Virtual Reality, begins its journey; the rounds of Alive Casino ICO start with a complete package of features and services that we will describe below. We know that it is not the first casino that integrates cryptocurrencies in it’s system, nor is it the first to run completely on blockchain. What has called us especially the attention is the integration of virtual reality.

Virtual reality, enjoys an increasingly accelerated development, offering new experiences and approaches on traditional ideas. The advances of recent years are making things easier, the new wave of VR devices will not be long in coming. This, implies more striking applications, due to more enveloping sensations than the traditional 2D. Maybe the classic 2D virtual casinos have their days in countdown.

Alive Casino, will give you the opportunity to visit a physical casino without leaving home, using VR devices. Once it is configured and released, the player will enjoy 360 degree views; both classic tables with live dealer and slot machines like Las Vegas style. Details that could not be missing in a casino… like the ease of change are thinked at all points; As an official casino token, the Alive token (AL) will be used for payments on the platform.

The AL token will be the backbone of the internal economy at Alive Casino

The Alive token will be an ERC20 token, with a maximum supply of 1,000,000,000 AL. Although its functions are destined to be completed through two stages … the Alive token will be, together with the users, protagonist of the ecosystem. During the first stage, it will perform functions together with other cryptocurrencies and tokens; offering use cases to investors, both initials and newcomers. Alive token holders will be able to deposit tokens, along with other cryptocurrencies and fiat. Once the wallet is loaded… ¡the game starts!

Later, in the respective second stage, Alive tokens (hereinafter also AL) adds functionalities and use cases. This stage unlocks exclusive features such as VR games, special events and some surprises to come. The moment of acquisition can be key of success, since every three months, the engineers of Alive Casino will burn 5% of all AL tokens that the house earns each quarter. This program of tokens Burn derives in shortage (or deflation), reinforcing the long term value of the tokens which remains in circulation. In this line, we can see how Pablo Gerboles (CEO & founder) and his closest team have worked out the minutest detail down to the last detail.

Sports betting and various poker styles will be available at Alive Casino

Those who love roulette or the Black Jack will not be alone; A whole world like that of sports betting is included. The software that will include sports betting can be the most complete. The impressive sum of more than 30,000 live matches every month will add fuel to the fire. Let’s review some of the main and most striking features of the section:

  • The incredible sum of 55,000 previous monthly matches.
  • 120+ sports that include eSports, virtual sports, traditional sports and live special events.
  • Native applications for iOS and Android available.
  • Four types of views: Classic, Modern, Asian and Combined.
  • Live broadcasts of Sports (via Streaming).
  • Live match statistics.
  • Many languages.

Nobody is left out, if you are passionate about fantasy games, you will not miss them

For fans of traditional strategic games such as Chinese Poker or Backgammon, monthly tournaments will be organized; this provides the opportunity to face people from all over the globe. However, we have been struck by the diversity offered by the ecosystem proposed by Alive Casino. The introduction of Fantasy mode games indicates that those responsible are attentive to trends. More than 5 sports and 20 leagues will cross clashes and competitiveness among a global mass of contenders. The rewards adhered to all the games will encourage the participants, adding more volume if possible to the Alive token.

We said that no one is left out, so the lottery could not be lacking in the games of chance of a casino. The lottery model chosen initially is based on the OGWIL model. OGWIL (for its acronymcOnline Guaranteed Win Instant Lottery) offers a highly immersive model of instantaneous and guaranteed online earnings. Specifically, it combines the global and well-established appeal of scratch card lottery cards with an online gambling game. All with mathematical models of fair probability with the players.

Alive Casino ICO offers the possibility to participate in winnings like Token Holder

Obviously, there is not a big casino without a good prizes claim; the ecosystem proposed by Alive Casino will fulfill the purpose of those who have a good time in the casino. Yes, the purpose is not other than to have fun and win succulent prizes. We invite you to read the white paper in depth, since the universe designed for Alive Casino offers a multitude of details regarding transparency and commitment from the start.

Without going any further, adhering to the traditional system of casino rewards, the AL token will provide an additional rewards system based on the Casino profits; rewarding the fidelity of token holders. Every three months, 40% of the profits of Alive Casino will be distributed among the holders of AL tokens; This is a benefit of those that digitize the ecosystem through Blockchain. This point will facilitate forging an initial ecosystem around the project. At the same time it returns the trust placed in Alive Casino to the community.

Profits distributed in AL, BTC, ETH and USDT since the beginning

The profits distribution model is detailed on the website of Alive Casino and the respective white paper. For reference, we attach an official text that reads as follows:

“40% of Alive Casino profits will be distributed to token holders who have their tokens located in the Alive’s Hold Wallet. Receive BTC, ETH, USDT and AL every 3 months!”

 

The profits distribution model does not put too much pressure on the AL token, which is a positive point. It is important that the distribution does not fall only on the AL token; while rewarding in ETH, BTC and USD will be attractive for holders. Some projects end up devaluing their token or cryptocurrency in an attempt to create an initial ecosystem. If the demand is low, the multiple rewards and offers (including bounties & airdrops) end up devaluing it.

The blocked period of the tokens assigned to the equipment and to the development offers protection to the investors against falls of AL tokens value.

In a clear sign of long-term intentions, the Alive casino team blocks their tokens. Excessive initial rewards, whether for homework or gift (bounty / airdrop), can dynamite an entire project (as we told previously). A massive and uncontrolled sales sum would be a corrective of fatal consequences. The initial numbers provided by the Alive Casino team guarantee management with a vision in the medium/long term.

Smart Contract Audit by COINMERCENARY:

https://aliveplaycasino.com/assets/doc/audit.pdf

Blockchain has been hailed as the most significant revolution in technology for the last decade for its elimination of third party accountability features. The transparency of the distributed ledger system is also convenient for users since it is largely free of manipulation. Now, what happened is that blockchain technology has become the greatest challenge to traditional banking. In fact, the biggest challenge suffered by blockchain and the adoption of the same is the fight that has been put up by banks, which can be blamed on the brutal bear season of 2018. From Wall Street to financial regulations in countries around the world, the banking system was caught pants down with crypto. Everybody wants technological advancement but clearly, they are not ready to lose the power they already wield.

Well, there are some projects that have been running in cryptocurrency and enthusiasts are looking forward to them working out in 2019 and chart a better path than we have had so far.

Ethereum

As of 2nd January, the price of ETH was $140, after surging by about 125 in a period of 1 week which is staggering considering the upcoming hard fork. Maybe the rise in price is a good thing which means that the upcoming upgrade will deliver more traffic therefore more transactions than ever before. ETH co-creator Joseph Lubin actually tweeted that the prices would go up since what is coming up is better and will guarantee more adoption of Ethereum, which cannot be qualified by just looking at market cap alone.

The news could not be more expected considering that the new upgrade incorporates the Casper proof of stake algorithm and either way they have to do better to compete with the likes of Tron and with minimal room for error. Another part of the upgrade is installing storage fees for implementing smart contracts. With the adoption of and rise of public use of blockchain, Ethereum has no choice but put in measures to become more stable.

Polymath

Polymath simplifies the legal process of creating and selling security tokens by enforcing its own token ST-20 which covers the compliance issue for STOs. How this is done is by bringing all the parties onto its platform and the transactions are carried out using poly tokens. So far, polymath’s majority client base are companies wishing to issue private securities. The best advantage polymath has is that its algorithm allows it to easily create, modify or edit blockchain security tokens to suit the demands of users.

Its biggest challenge is regulation according to Polymath vice Marketing President, Graeme Moore. Since the legal implications and requirements around STOs is enormous compared to ICOs, Polymath has a huge mantle to comply with local and international legal standards as well which more often than not, have to maintain these standards even after the offering.

The reason polymath is set for success is that the platform is highly preferred due to the one factor that maintains the growth of blockchain; eliminating the third party which includes lawyers, underwriters, and auditors. But, this is also why the regulation of STOs is so strict and burdens Polymath to prove that they can handle the demands.

Decentralized Applications

A popular tech blog dabbed android authority published an article at the end of 2018 on the expected technology updates for 2019 and one of them was that a breakthrough decentralized application based on blockchain will be introduced, maybe even with its own currency.

Tech knows no bounds. Matter of fact I expect mind blowing inventions since there are so many business ideas that one can use based on blockchain. There were ideas  about whole replacement applications like decentralized banking, decentralized cryptographic insurance, etc. Follow here for the latest reviews on these applications in every sector, payment, games, healthcare, gambling and trading as well.

EOS

EOS has had a bit of a rough history up to date, which has caused a lot of negative outlook on the four billion dollars ICO. At the moment, EOS is in a short bullish run with short disparities in price by around $0.1-2 since the beginning of 2019. EOS is the fifth largest cryptocurrency by market cap, therefore it has tangible pressure to perform after the craziness of last year and the competition it faces from Ethereum and Tron.

In 2018, EOS had reached a high of $21 but is at $2.77 as at time of posting it is confusing to even think about how the future of EOS will be. One great outlook for 2019 is that the Huobi group (who’s trading volume hits $1 billion daily) announced its plans to roll out a new EOS trading exchange to trade EOS against other assets.

This is a welcome idea considering EOS recently got a bad rap concerning its alleged centralization, and investigations into potential corrupt schemes. The team behind the Huobi project will have to address both issues on technology and community impact. If this is sorted, EOS will turn around in 2019 by increasing trading volume and potential increase in demand.

Crypto.com

The domain was purchased in 2018 by Monaco, a cryptocurrency Visa company bought it for a rumored $10 million. At the time, Hong Kong based Monaco held around $25 million in value and after purchase the company has now reported that it has increased its value to $200 million.

At the time of purchase, the idea was to give Monaco a facelift by creating its own cryptocurrency, MCO which would be made available on a peer to peer wallet and use the website as the face of the company. In consequence, after testing the wallet application, it would be made available in Singapore, Europe and the US.

At the time of posting, the plan has not completely had much to show but there have been some positive steps. For example, the company already put out test cards in Singapore, released a few mobile applications and videos. My take is that they better deliver this year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Satoshi Nakamoto is the mysterious creator of Bitcoin cryptocurrency, which was posted on a digital currency discussion platform ten years ago. As a matter of speculation, that is not even his real name but rather thought to be a pseudonym which is not known to either represent an individual, group of people or an entity altogether. He is in fact dubbed the ‘world’s most elusive billionaire’ In this article, we are going to explore what digital currency has done to the financial sector and the worth of the ‘father of crypto’ as such.

In 2017, Forbes posted an article on the impact that cryptocurrencies will have or were already having on the financial sector, positive impact that is and they could not have been truer. Here are their findings:

  • Efficiency – crypto transactions are faster and will potentially overrun the lengthy traditional banking processes
  • Disruptive to the point of adoption – digital currencies are more transparent which make it attractive to users
  • Cross border transactions – international money transfer is a concept that is currently being rolled out by cryptocurrency and the best part is that it is far less costly.
  • Digital currency is a better storage of wealth especially in dwindling economies like that of Zimbabwe and Venezuela.
  • The decentralized feature of blockchain technology reduces the risk of identity manipulation while transacting cryptocurrencies, compared to the rampant fraud in banks
  • Digital currencies will one day completely replace actual paper money or fiat as the innovation behind it is quickly taking over industries and businesses

How much is Satoshi Nakamoto worth?

The changes brought about by the invention of cryptocurrency does not stop there. It revolves around literally a lot more as you can see here. So it would be preposterous to not say that Satoshi has indeed become a force to reckon with in the financial sector. He/ she/ they has changed the world. And that does not come without its perks, top on the list being money.

Satoshi is currently ranked as number 44 on the world’s top 100 powerful financial influencers. He is believed to control almost a million Bitcoins which gives him a net worth of about $19.4 billion. And this is the current estimated value compared to the glamorous year Bitcoin was at an all-time high where a unit cost close to $20,000 at the close of 2017.

It is also worth mentioning that this financial genius’ impact on the world has been so great that ‘he’ got nominated for the 2016 Nobel peace prize in economics.  Unfortunately, this was not to be since the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto is unknown and there is like a standing rule regarding anonymous nominees of Nobel peace prizes. Either way, the consideration alone shows that cryptocurrency is revolutionary and has made an unmatched impact worldwide.

 

Bitacium will compete to innovate transboundary global fintech ecosystems

The trend continues its course, bringing more and more complete ecosystems. The cryptocurrency launching that are exclusively for point-to-point payments have ended. The trend has improved itself, and the emerging tokenization projects cover a rich ecosystem. The replication of traditional services inside the cyberspace continues, even improving traditional models when digitized.

In the fintech sector, global adoption of cryptocurrencies, tokens, smart contracts and multifunction wallets is beginning to be the norm. A sector as demanding as it is requires the latest advances and implementations to be competitive.

Bitacium offers an entire ecosystem through its wallet. In addition to the wallet, an ecosystem of services and interactions that will involve and evolve the XBOND token.Bitacium focuses on social network users, traders, merchants and e-commerce businesses.

On Bitacium website we read the following:

“We will constantly work to improve technology and users experience, solving everyday problems, one by one.”

So the ecosystem requires full asset management, peer communication and other implementations that we proceed to in details.

User retention depends on several factors such as platform versatility, security and intuitive interfaces

The retention of the user is very important for the platforms, a satisfied user gives his time and attention. The relationship between these services must be natural, without annoying intermediate steps, simply balanced. The Bitacium platform gives users the ability to access, transfer, buy, sell products and services from any location. In this aspect, versatility is guaranteed with the inclusion of Top cryptocurrencies and tokens. Another aspect related to the versatility of the platform is the management and / or use of foreign currency in the ecosystem. Bitacium offers a menu of services and utilities to meet the expectations of 2019.

On the other hand, security is vital in an era when physical attacks, robberies and coercion are being digitized. This trend consolidates at a growing rate. Therefore, a quality service requires advanced security. What would the whole proposed ecosystem serve in a system filled with gaps? The Ethereum network is the second in capitalization of the crypto market and its hash power offers such security. Bitacium has chosen  Ethereum network ecosystem to offer their community. We have recently witnessed how a 51% hack dealt a blow to the Ethereum Classic blockchain; This reinforces the need for powerful reinforcement ecosystems to guarantee the security of services and data.

The XBOND is a unique token created under the Erc-20 standard. It will be issued to the investors of the initial offer (ITO/early adopters ). This investors can acquire the tokens during token sale from their website. The XBOND can be used as collateral on the platform to obtain a loan. The amount of XBOND that a holder hodl determines how much the hodler receives from the platform.

XBOND will offer functions as collateral for loans

One of XBOND’s flagship functions is to support loans, the founding core of Bitacium demonstrates total confidence in its product. The XBOND will be the gateway to get loans from the platform at a low interest rate. This will provide liquidity in record time to users with a reserve in their possession as collateral support.

Sometimes, liquidity is needed in a short time period and for essential reasons we can not dispose of the entire amount. There is no problem with XBOND, if the token is held in the wallet it will provide the collateral function and the user will have the relevant amount. As a collateral utility to use, this will be another one of the multiple cases of use devised; so the ecosystem offers alternatives, variety and open business possibilities.

The decentralized exchange will form an important part of the Bitacium ecosystem

Multiple personalities of the crypto scenario have declared it publicly, the DEX exchanges are the future. Years later we witness how we can find several decentralized exchanges between the “top exchanges”. Instant functionality without off-line times makes DEX exchanges a 100% active tool.

Bitacium will offer complete user management of its own Altcoins; therefore it makes sense that the decentralized exchange completes the circle. This expands the possibilities of the ecosystem. The offered token, XBOND, works in the Ethereum network so it can operate in the DEX with multiple trading pairs. An added bonus, since XBOND holders win with the Bitacium exchange platform. The combination of a centralized exchange and a decentralized one begins to gain strength in the sector and Bitacium will offer the two options to its users.

The platform will offer multiple management options and social network functions to interact / negotiate between users, decentralized exchange provides the essential part of self-management exchange for the most passionate traders.

Customer loyalty, the Bitacium platform will reward users for their transactions

In addition to the rewards in the exchange, a more extensive model is proposed. In the most recent projects, it is observed that aspects such as the incentive for actions have gained strength. Earlier we commented that wallets increasingly provide more functions; these actions and their monitoring, open up new interaction routes between the platform and the user (p2p).

Taking advantage of these possibilities, Bitacium is implementng a system of rewards through CashBack, promotions and special discounts; the possibility of negotiating with other users, discussing business, signing agreements, all this in addition to making transactions with the XBOND token. The cases of use of the token begin to be multiple. On the website, they present a bbrief example user scenario that represents the possible benefits of being part of the ecosystem:

“For example, Consumer A buys the item from Dealer B at a cheaper price than the market price, both can chat and make transactions on the Bitacium platform, using XBOND to eliminate any transaction charges. money back bonus to buy through our merchant At the end of a negotiation session, both Consumer A, Merchant B, and all other users of the Bitacium platform receive a reward for shared use of the distributed token to participate in e-commerce agreements using the platform. “

The reward and consensus ecosystem will include and encourage without exclusion

The XBOND token offers is  recommended to all types of users, some cryptocurrencies and ecosystems reward certain types of actions, while others are the opposite side completely. The users of the ecosystem launched by Bitacium will obtain compensations whatever their actions. In addition to the cashback reward model, there is an alternative model associated with the platform’s earnings. Each user who holds XBOND tokens will obtain their proportional share of platform’s profits. We could say that it is a way for the company to return to investors the value created with their investment and early participation.

Other projects have opted for more limited incentive methods, which always exclude a part of the users. In this line we can say that they are non inclusive models for some users and incentivation model for others. The system designed for the Bitacium project and the XBOND token offers a whole menu of incentive possibilities to each user. This implies that both users who make a long-term investment (in the HODL style), and the most active traders and negotiators are satisfied.

The platform gives users the prominence they deserve, encouraging each and every one of them. Another aspect that reinforces the previous statement is the system of governance and voting. XBOND holders can vote to decide on consensus decision making and other details. This shows that the transparency and commitment of the company can benefit the members of the community, customers, followers and “hodlers”.

Guaranteed entertainment without leaving the Bitacium ecosystem in the Game Zone

We started by pointing out that the sector seems to have evolved towards more complete new creation projects. We pointed out, the importance of seeing that new cryptocurrencies or tokens are not limited purely to p2p transactions. In this line, Bitacium enriches its proposal even more. A section included in your system will offer an entire entertainment ecosystem; the BITACIUM GAME ZONE provides a space in which to have a good time between so much transfer space in which the XBOND token will also interact too.

From the documentation we verify that the game zone interacts in the token ecosystem by the following way. Users can play by swapping another altcoins to XBOND token, and then using XBOND as the game tax base currency. This implementation can increase the use of the token in an additional ways with much more volume.

In conclusion, we observed that the Bitacium project offers a very complete menu of services and interactions. With the market breathing fresh air after an overwhelming 2018, the new proposals of 2019 begins to stand strong.

Singapore based BitTorrent foundation announced that they are introducing a new cryptographic token called BTT, which will be run on the Tron Protocol. Justin Sun founder and CEO of both Tron and BitTorrent, stated that the aim of introducing the token is to create a token-based economy to make it easier for users around the world share their content directly to others online. BitTorrent was the first technology company to introduce peer to peer file sharing on the internet

Background

BitTorrent is a decentralized peer to peer file sharing protocol that was invented in 2001 to facilitate the transfer of large files around the internet and has over 1 billion users and over 100 million daily active users. It works by breaking down large files into smaller bits which use less internet bandwidth to download by multiple users. Please read here, for better grasp of how BitTorrent works.

The company was bought by blockchain startup Tron last year by Tron CEO Justin Sun for $140 million. At the time of acquisition, plans for BitTorrent had not been made public but it was general knowledge that a blockchain company obviously intended to use the protocol for some crypto function.

Tron acquired BitTorrent solely for the reason that it was the world’s largest decentralized peer to peer technology system. Before that, there had been rumors that that the owner and founder of Tron had been looking to purchase the technology company for their P-2-P file sharing and architecture system. Once Tron merged with it, it is now undoubtedly the largest functioning decentralized ecosystem.

BTT Launch

At the start of this year, Tron announced the launch of the BitTorrent token BTT, which is based on the Tron protocol. The BTT token has the following decentralized characteristics:

  • Content delivery service – it will enable service requesters to advertise bids and pay BTT for bandwidth so as to receive mass or a particular piece of content. Service providers will have to provide content that can be accessed to as many people as possible
  • Storage service – it will allow service requesters to pay for storage over time. Service providers will store some amount of data then provide proofs-of-storage to the service requester upon request. They will be able to download the stored data from the service for a pre-arranged fee. Service providers will therefore have to look for content which offers the highest payment rate over time.
  • Proxy service – to enable service requesters pay a client for the retrieval of content by URL such as mobile application users, who can retrieve web resources in bulk even with minimal internet connection services.

An article posted on 4th January stated that the token would be accessible to non-US accounts powered by binance, one of two tokens to launch on the platform and progressively be distributed by selective airdrops in the course of the month. BTT has 990 billion tokens which will be availed together with a wallet so that non-crypto users will be able to use it. One of the benefits of this token is that all pre-existing Tron users will automatically have access to BTT tokens. Find out more on the token white paper here.

 

 

The Token PDT will revolutionize tourism internationally blockchain
Tourism, an immense market in which millions of people manage or enjoy daily thousands of international flights. To the flights, we can add adjacent services and multiple local disciplines associated to the commerce that causes the affluence of tourists. It is the scenario in which the launch of Paradise Token, and its PDT token, is involved. This will make things difficult for the competition going forward.
The tourism sector is an ultracompetitive sector, so a successful innovative movement can lead to adoption by all market players. The fact is, that some newly created projects have tried to integrate tokens into the ecosystem, with serious difficulties. Not because of infrastructure difficulties, since the international tourism ecosystem is at the forefront; Many high-level stores already accept Bitcoin, and you can also enjoy new technologies and luxuries in their vicinity.

However, it is a sector with powerful and huge hotel networks; It is not easy to enter the large market that offers without a previous global infrastructure. ParadiseToken, has all the indicators of a solid and reinforced project due to its association with Intercontex Group. This association provides a potential reach to more than 120,000 entities among hotels, airlines and businesses; that is the spectacular figure that is handled. As part of the Intercontex Group they are associated with the largest group hotels in the world; The list is as extensive as it is striking: Hilton, Marriott, Wyndham, IHG, Jumeirah, Kempinski, Loews Hotels, RIU Hotels, Tokyu Hotels, Langham Hospitality Group and more.
 
Digitize and tokenize the ecosystem already forged, the challenge of the Token PDT for 2019

Obviously with hotel networks of such associated magnitudes, restaurants and any type of entertainment are involved. Therefore, the use cases are so varied that we will not stop to enumerate them. The basis and idea is to tokenize through existing relationships, a series of services more than complete. All this added to a large existing customer base. An example would be to offer ecosystem tokens to customers for visiting and having an exquisite / gourmet gastronomy chain associated.
Instead of creating a token and looking for the ecosystem in which to implement it; Adopting the digitization via blockchain of an already consolidated project seems more logical and less risky, clearly a point in favor. Paradisetoken offers to be able to use your PDT token across a global network. Having a direct and totally normalized service; It includes an extensive list of countries and the largest hotel chains, ready to make the reservation in minutes with the token.
Paying for vacations using the PDT Token is a clear example of what can be done from the beginning; so the initial infrastructure may seem like a network not seen until now in the ICO projects of 2017 and 2018. Without third parties and without surprise commissions, it is what p2p technologies offer and adopts the ParadiseToken motto. Remember that as a user, the holder of the token can instantly use the PDT to book hotels / restaurants / flights directly without third parties.
 
Details of the token and ecosystem PDT offered at the initial launch
The event records more events around the PDT token, but we stop to comment for a moment. The token will be part of a whole set of tools in the ecosystem protocol generated. PDT protocols provide developers with the foundation to build decentralized applications (dApps). These protocols are open source solutions for managing reserves / secure payments via blockchain. The PDT token is a utility token that is native to the Ethereum network, specifically a token of the Erc-20 standard.

Therefore, it is compatible with an extensive portfolio menu. Obviously, MyEtherWallet and Metamask are the best known; although there are many more compatible with the native tokens of the Ethereum network. The figures regarding the initial acquisition of the PDT token vary depending on specific details; for example, the date in which you participate. Taking into account these factors, the purchase price ranges between 10000 and 14000 PDT tokens for each Ether contributed. For what remains with it a 10,000 / 14,000: 1 ratio (PDT: ETH); all with a deadline of next March 9. At the end of the article we share a link to the sale of the token; we also recommend visiting both the website and the official documentation for more details:

 

  • First week bonus 40% | 14000 PDT = 1 Eth.
  • Second week 0% bonus | 10000 PDT = 1 Eth.
  • Third week 0% bonus | 10000 PDT = 1 Eth.
  • Fourth week 0% bonus | 10000 PDT = 1 Eth

What’s coming for 2019 in the PDT token ecosystem?

Once the initial sale is completed and the following stages are put into operation, the operations are more than relevant. We have been especially struck by the third quarter of the year, it is the most active within the planned operations. Some data that are detailed in your road map (RoadMap) so they are public data of the Paradise Token core. The estimated total cost of all operations for the third quarter is $ 1,700,000. The operations are the usual ones for such a magnitude project, such as the costs of AWS servers. we describe them below.
As mentioned earlier, for the third quarter it is expected that the reserve PDT Token executed by intelligent contract will be ready; with the built-in ecosystems of Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Bali. All this entails a constant, safe and globally available development for the sites involved. The purpose of the initial offer is to create a complete e-commerce solution. The first version of the confidence rating is among the objectives of the third quarter.

Developing a fully functional payment gateway with a user interface for e-commerce merchants completes the overall functionality. Since the trend of 2019 is being to carry all functionalities and services to the wallets. It is expected that therefore for the second half of the year an additional infrastructure will be developed to that already conformed to the magnitudes of the operations. In addition to the respective relevant security requirements with complete security functions (anti CSRF Token, AES encryption, 2FA) .

The established customer base can be incentivized by the associated shops and hotels
Once exposed a good part of the details, the ideas that come to mind are almost unlimited. Customer loyalty promotions, off-season campaigns to reactivate touristic areas; endless possibilities thanks to the p2p tokenization of traditional ecosystems. An established base of clients from entities such as the Hilton, Marriott, Tokyu Hotels or Langham Hospitality Group chains can enjoy the incentives of using the PDT token for their vacations very early.

The EBIC will be holding an exhibition event for the first time ever in Vienna on the 28th of  February for three days to discuss business models based on cutting-edge blockchain technology and their impact on the society.

The details of the Congress will be the following topics:

  • How blockchain business models affect a variety of markets.
  • How blockchain technology affects the development of society with different innovative opportunities for organizations to adopt efficient systems and processes.
  • Get expert insights from successful blockchain startups regarding advertising implications on security concerns.
  • Potential blockchain and cryptocurrency regulations and the impact it will have on the industry.
  • The working mechanism for crowdfunding and how ICOs trump traditional financial systems.
  • Look at the adoption of blockchain across different industries such as healthcare, innovation, tourism and such like and if they have succeeded or failed and the recommendations thereof.

This congress is brought together by the European Blockchain Partnership which was formed by 26 Member States in 2018 in the pursuit of the adoption of blockchain technology. All of these member states had made significant strides in testing and applying blockchain systems and in the words of Mariya Gabriel, the commissioner for Digital Economy and Society;

‘In future, the majority of public services will use blockchain technology. Blockchain presents a great opportunity for Europe and Member States to revamp and reinvent their information systems, to promote user trust and protection of personal data, help create new business opportunities and create new areas of leadership, for the benefit of citizens, public services and businesses. The Partnership launched today will enable Member States join forces with the European Commission to turn the enormous potential of blockchain technology into better services for their citizens’.

The Partnership came into existence following the concerns brought about in 2017 after the first blockchain technology conference held in Brussels where it was not lost on the European Commission that blockchain technology and artificial intelligence had a huge potential of affecting the financial sector, administrations, businesses and the society as well. With this in mind, the commission sponsored research into the blockchain trend and formed the EU Blockchain Observatory Forum to present their findings.
In the spirit of the Declaration, European countries that are signatories agree to recognize and harness the many opportunities that blockchain technology presents to transform digital services in Europe. Each member state is to also nominate a representative who will work with the European Commission to execute the following two agendas:

  • Identifying existing cross-border digital public sector services that could benefit from blockchain business models.
  • Making recommendations after thorough research to the commission on blockchain technology models that could guarantee the success of its implementation in both the private and public sector.
     
    Ireland was one of the latter signatories having ratified the declaration in 2018 and today signed into law a bill that aims to regulate digital currencies and their use, as proposed by the anti-money laundering orders of the European Blockchain partnership. The bill is welcomed since it is giving credence to the criminal justice system and empowers the Criminal Asset Bureau to pursue suspicious digital transactions.
    The formation of the partnership and the fact that it is already making strides in recommending the adoption and innovation of blockchain into business places Europe on the front line on matters regulation. The application of the technology across borders is welcomed by the member states due to the changing economic status while still providing the highest levels of trust and privacy among users.

On the 31st Of May 2018, Tron achieved independence from Ethereum and Launched its own Mainnet with the Intention of being a fully functional Public Blockchain that supports Creation and development of decentralized Apps (dApps) .

With 183 Days of Trons Mainnet being active, this is what it has been able to achieve:

  • More Transaction Volumes as compared to Ethereum
  • More accounts as compared to EOS
  • More than 1Million registered users by 12/24/2018
  • More than 80 dApps  in 60 days of its TVM (Dapp) Launch
  • Top 10 Cryptocurrencies by Market capitalization

 

What Does Justin Sun Hope to achieve in 2019

  • Break into the Top 5 Cryptocurrencies by Market Capitalization
  • Make Tron Network bigger than Ethereum’s
  • Onboard  Bit torrents 100M users on to the Blockchain

A decade ago, the digital assets concepts was introduced into the financial world. Since then, there has been over 1000 individual cryptocurrencies formed aside from the original currency Bitcoin. Before Bitcoin came into existence, there had been an attempt at creating encrypted online currencies like Bit Gold and B-Money which did not really come to development.

Then came in the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto who posted the paper called Bitcoin on a cryptocurrency discussion forum and the rest is history. Fast forward to the eventful 2018 where the price correction was so severe that the losses of investors was ridiculous.

There are certain developments expected in 2019 by investors and cryptopreneurs.

  • Institutional money will be invested into Bitcoin ETF

Institutional bodies are warming up to cryptocurrency and the train is not about to slow down. For example, Ohio State in November 2018 rolled out a system that accepts taxes being paid in Bitcoin. For investors, adopting to changing financial times is a must and the adoption of blockchain technology is not unexpected. One of the world’s largest hedge fund managers Fidelity, also introduced cryptocurrency trading services to its clients. Once institutional investors pour money into cryptocurrency it will cause a spike on the prices of the currencies invested into.

Once the SEC approves Bitcoin ETF, institutions will get the guarantee they need just in case they are still unsure about executing their plans and raise the value of Bitcoin, much like the first ETF for gold came up and increased its value by 300% in 2003.

  • Increase of decentralized exchanges

At the moment, decentralized exchanges still see lower volumes than centralized exchanges despite the technological and regulatory advances in cryptocurrency. This could be because the majority of decentralized transactions are restricted to privacy oriented cryptocurrencies ZCash and Monero which are actually dominating these transactions. Platforms like Ethereum which operate with smart contracts also prefer to use decentralized exchanges, which will hopefully increase in volume with time, especially because Ethereum is performing really well compared to most altcoins.

  • Security Tokens Adoption Increase

Security tokens are much safer than crowd funded Initial Coin Offers (ICOs). Security tokens came up to confirm ownership of digital assets, which means that the transaction of representation is done on paper, therefore complying with legal requirements. Security tokens are legalized by smart contracts which are used for the cryptocurrency transactions.

There are benefits to adoption of security tokens:

  1. Expansion of the crypto investor market
  2. Better methods to market products and services
  3. Security tokens are more efficient capital markets product than traditional securities.
  4. Security tokens will restore stability to the market.
  • Revolution of decentralized applications

Traditional centralized transaction applications have been in place since fiat was introduced. It has now become increasingly clear that unless blockchain technology is adopted, a lot of financial institutions will be left out of the economic revolution taking place.

The resistance facing blockchain technology is simply because eliminating third parties to fiscal contracts seems like a loss of fundamental trust. One of the challenges faced in 2018 was the resistance to cheaper more efficient decentralized blockchain application.

  • Valuation of cryptocurrencies to stabilize the market

Cryptocurrency prices are affected by a lot of factors but that which stands out is exactly the same as that of Fiat value. Demand and supply, which is a basic economic value. Simple, if the demand of a cryptocurrency is high and the supply is low, the price will increase and vice versa. However, that is not all that affects cryptocurrency prices; there are many other factors such as regulation, competition, stability and quantity of the digital resource.

Cryptocurrency is literally the hottest economic development right now and granted, it is still going through intense evolution which poses a problem when it comes to determining their value. First, there is no limit of cryptocurrencies compared to like Fiat and say, precious metals. Anyone can come up with a coin but it is worthless unless people recognize it, adopt it and begin to trade it. Kindly have a look here on the different ways the value of cryptocurrencies are determined.

Recap of 2018 Biggest ICO ROIs

Exchanges | ICO News | Reviews | Technical Analysis | Wallets

The ICO market is a highly volatile terrain, being that there are new ICOs being put out constantly and they are all in competition in every sector there is for investors to choose. It can be easily said that ICO investment is a sort of a gamble since investors buy into the ICO either through fiat currency or preexisting digital tokens in the hope that the ICO will perform exceptionally well in the future and provide great returns. ICOs have been particularly useful for startups that are avoiding the vigorous traditional funding process stipulated by banks or venture capitalists.

In this case, ICOs are very much like IPOs only difference is that with ICOs, it is purely a hoe and pray whereas with IPOs, the investors have a better understanding of the well set up venture that they are putting their money into and they actually own part of the business they are investing into in form of shares. As such, IPOs are regulated, centralized and are mainly for the purpose of advancing the operations of the venture. As for ICOs, the tokens being issued have no inherent value, are largely unregulated and function on a decentralized blockchain platform.

The best and actual only benefit of ICOs is their potential for amazing returns. And they have indeed made a lot of millionaires from investors. In 2017 for example, there were over 435 successful ICOs that raised about $5.6 billion, 25% of which was raised by the top ten ICOs in that list. Here are the best performing ICOs of 2018 that gave the best returns on investment.

These ICOs are termed as best performing because of the return of investments that they have brought about. It does not however negate the probability of risk that is basically the trademark of the cryptocurrency market. It is however my opinion that for those of you who are interested in investing into crypto, it is easier to start with more stable coins like Ethereum and Bitcoin, then diversify as you learn more about trading and the potential to make good on your investments so as to take intelligent risks.

There are quick steps to follow where one is interested in ICO investments:

  • Sign up on a digital currency exchange.
  • Buy and stock up on the currency that supports the ICO.
  • Once you have stocked up as much as you intend to invest, transfer the holdings into a digital wallet that supports the ICO you are investing in.
  • Make sure to access the whitepaper that outlines everything regarding the ICO and be certain that you are able to get to the ICO’s official website.
  • Once you have entered the token sale, register for the ICO by providing your public wallet address as required by the site.
  • Follow the ICO buying instructions on launch day, where at the end you will receive the ICO cryptocurrency at the specified rates offered.
  • Once you have received the tokens, you can exchange them for USD or other digital currencies if you please.

There are no specifics to locating upcoming ICOs since there are new ones coming up almost constantly. However, having online curiosity or using cryptocurrency bots is a good option where they have key words like ICOs or crypto news for example on their social features to give you information on ICOs. There is a site like ICO Watchlist that allows you to look at new ICOs or news of preexisting ones and the trading prices as well as if they are viable options or potential scams.

 

Virtual reality and entertainment, participation is open to Alive Casino ICO

The progress of the crypto economic and financial ecosystem continues, with the consequent tokenization of traditional sectors. The most fashionable technology at the global level together with AI continues its course. The Online Casino compatible with Virtual Reality, begins its journey; the rounds of Alive Casino ICO start with a complete package of features and services that we will describe below. We know that it is not the first casino that integrates cryptocurrencies in it’s system, nor is it the first to run completely on blockchain. What has called us especially the attention is the integration of virtual reality.

Virtual reality, enjoys an increasingly accelerated development, offering new experiences and approaches on traditional ideas. The advances of recent years are making things easier, the new wave of VR devices will not be long in coming. This, implies more striking applications, due to more enveloping sensations than the traditional 2D. Maybe the classic 2D virtual casinos have their days in countdown.

Alive Casino, will give you the opportunity to visit a physical casino without leaving home, using VR devices. Once it is configured and released, the player will enjoy 360 degree views; both classic tables with live dealer and slot machines like Las Vegas style. Details that could not be missing in a casino… like the ease of change are thinked at all points; As an official casino token, the Alive token (AL) will be used for payments on the platform.

The AL token will be the backbone of the internal economy at Alive Casino

The Alive token will be an ERC20 token, with a maximum supply of 1,000,000,000 AL. Although its functions are destined to be completed through two stages … the Alive token will be, together with the users, protagonist of the ecosystem. During the first stage, it will perform functions together with other cryptocurrencies and tokens; offering use cases to investors, both initials and newcomers. Alive token holders will be able to deposit tokens, along with other cryptocurrencies and fiat. Once the wallet is loaded… ¡the game starts!

Later, in the respective second stage, Alive tokens (hereinafter also AL) adds functionalities and use cases. This stage unlocks exclusive features such as VR games, special events and some surprises to come. The moment of acquisition can be key of success, since every three months, the engineers of Alive Casino will burn 5% of all AL tokens that the house earns each quarter. This program of tokens Burn derives in shortage (or deflation), reinforcing the long term value of the tokens which remains in circulation. In this line, we can see how Pablo Gerboles (CEO & founder) and his closest team have worked out the minutest detail down to the last detail.

Sports betting and various poker styles will be available at Alive Casino

Those who love roulette or the Black Jack will not be alone; A whole world like that of sports betting is included. The software that will include sports betting can be the most complete. The impressive sum of more than 30,000 live matches every month will add fuel to the fire. Let’s review some of the main and most striking features of the section:

  • The incredible sum of 55,000 previous monthly matches.
  • 120+ sports that include eSports, virtual sports, traditional sports and live special events.
  • Native applications for iOS and Android available.
  • Four types of views: Classic, Modern, Asian and Combined.
  • Live broadcasts of Sports (via Streaming).
  • Live match statistics.
  • Many languages.

Nobody is left out, if you are passionate about fantasy games, you will not miss them

For fans of traditional strategic games such as Chinese Poker or Backgammon, monthly tournaments will be organized; this provides the opportunity to face people from all over the globe. However, we have been struck by the diversity offered by the ecosystem proposed by Alive Casino. The introduction of Fantasy mode games indicates that those responsible are attentive to trends. More than 5 sports and 20 leagues will cross clashes and competitiveness among a global mass of contenders. The rewards adhered to all the games will encourage the participants, adding more volume if possible to the Alive token.

We said that no one is left out, so the lottery could not be lacking in the games of chance of a casino. The lottery model chosen initially is based on the OGWIL model. OGWIL (for its acronymcOnline Guaranteed Win Instant Lottery) offers a highly immersive model of instantaneous and guaranteed online earnings. Specifically, it combines the global and well-established appeal of scratch card lottery cards with an online gambling game. All with mathematical models of fair probability with the players.

Alive Casino ICO offers the possibility to participate in winnings like Token Holder

Obviously, there is not a big casino without a good prizes claim; the ecosystem proposed by Alive Casino will fulfill the purpose of those who have a good time in the casino. Yes, the purpose is not other than to have fun and win succulent prizes. We invite you to read the white paper in depth, since the universe designed for Alive Casino offers a multitude of details regarding transparency and commitment from the start.

Without going any further, adhering to the traditional system of casino rewards, the AL token will provide an additional rewards system based on the Casino profits; rewarding the fidelity of token holders. Every three months, 40% of the profits of Alive Casino will be distributed among the holders of AL tokens; This is a benefit of those that digitize the ecosystem through Blockchain. This point will facilitate forging an initial ecosystem around the project. At the same time it returns the trust placed in Alive Casino to the community.

Profits distributed in AL, BTC, ETH and USDT since the beginning

The profits distribution model is detailed on the website of Alive Casino and the respective white paper. For reference, we attach an official text that reads as follows:

“40% of Alive Casino profits will be distributed to token holders who have their tokens located in the Alive’s Hold Wallet. Receive BTC, ETH, USDT and AL every 3 months!”

 

The profits distribution model does not put too much pressure on the AL token, which is a positive point. It is important that the distribution does not fall only on the AL token; while rewarding in ETH, BTC and USD will be attractive for holders. Some projects end up devaluing their token or cryptocurrency in an attempt to create an initial ecosystem. If the demand is low, the multiple rewards and offers (including bounties & airdrops) end up devaluing it.

The blocked period of the tokens assigned to the equipment and to the development offers protection to the investors against falls of AL tokens value.

In a clear sign of long-term intentions, the Alive casino team blocks their tokens. Excessive initial rewards, whether for homework or gift (bounty / airdrop), can dynamite an entire project (as we told previously). A massive and uncontrolled sales sum would be a corrective of fatal consequences. The initial numbers provided by the Alive Casino team guarantee management with a vision in the medium/long term.

Smart Contract Audit by COINMERCENARY:

https://aliveplaycasino.com/assets/doc/audit.pdf

Blockchain has been hailed as the most significant revolution in technology for the last decade for its elimination of third party accountability features. The transparency of the distributed ledger system is also convenient for users since it is largely free of manipulation. Now, what happened is that blockchain technology has become the greatest challenge to traditional banking. In fact, the biggest challenge suffered by blockchain and the adoption of the same is the fight that has been put up by banks, which can be blamed on the brutal bear season of 2018. From Wall Street to financial regulations in countries around the world, the banking system was caught pants down with crypto. Everybody wants technological advancement but clearly, they are not ready to lose the power they already wield.

Well, there are some projects that have been running in cryptocurrency and enthusiasts are looking forward to them working out in 2019 and chart a better path than we have had so far.

Ethereum

As of 2nd January, the price of ETH was $140, after surging by about 125 in a period of 1 week which is staggering considering the upcoming hard fork. Maybe the rise in price is a good thing which means that the upcoming upgrade will deliver more traffic therefore more transactions than ever before. ETH co-creator Joseph Lubin actually tweeted that the prices would go up since what is coming up is better and will guarantee more adoption of Ethereum, which cannot be qualified by just looking at market cap alone.

The news could not be more expected considering that the new upgrade incorporates the Casper proof of stake algorithm and either way they have to do better to compete with the likes of Tron and with minimal room for error. Another part of the upgrade is installing storage fees for implementing smart contracts. With the adoption of and rise of public use of blockchain, Ethereum has no choice but put in measures to become more stable.

Polymath

Polymath simplifies the legal process of creating and selling security tokens by enforcing its own token ST-20 which covers the compliance issue for STOs. How this is done is by bringing all the parties onto its platform and the transactions are carried out using poly tokens. So far, polymath’s majority client base are companies wishing to issue private securities. The best advantage polymath has is that its algorithm allows it to easily create, modify or edit blockchain security tokens to suit the demands of users.

Its biggest challenge is regulation according to Polymath vice Marketing President, Graeme Moore. Since the legal implications and requirements around STOs is enormous compared to ICOs, Polymath has a huge mantle to comply with local and international legal standards as well which more often than not, have to maintain these standards even after the offering.

The reason polymath is set for success is that the platform is highly preferred due to the one factor that maintains the growth of blockchain; eliminating the third party which includes lawyers, underwriters, and auditors. But, this is also why the regulation of STOs is so strict and burdens Polymath to prove that they can handle the demands.

Decentralized Applications

A popular tech blog dabbed android authority published an article at the end of 2018 on the expected technology updates for 2019 and one of them was that a breakthrough decentralized application based on blockchain will be introduced, maybe even with its own currency.

Tech knows no bounds. Matter of fact I expect mind blowing inventions since there are so many business ideas that one can use based on blockchain. There were ideas  about whole replacement applications like decentralized banking, decentralized cryptographic insurance, etc. Follow here for the latest reviews on these applications in every sector, payment, games, healthcare, gambling and trading as well.

EOS

EOS has had a bit of a rough history up to date, which has caused a lot of negative outlook on the four billion dollars ICO. At the moment, EOS is in a short bullish run with short disparities in price by around $0.1-2 since the beginning of 2019. EOS is the fifth largest cryptocurrency by market cap, therefore it has tangible pressure to perform after the craziness of last year and the competition it faces from Ethereum and Tron.

In 2018, EOS had reached a high of $21 but is at $2.77 as at time of posting it is confusing to even think about how the future of EOS will be. One great outlook for 2019 is that the Huobi group (who’s trading volume hits $1 billion daily) announced its plans to roll out a new EOS trading exchange to trade EOS against other assets.

This is a welcome idea considering EOS recently got a bad rap concerning its alleged centralization, and investigations into potential corrupt schemes. The team behind the Huobi project will have to address both issues on technology and community impact. If this is sorted, EOS will turn around in 2019 by increasing trading volume and potential increase in demand.

Crypto.com

The domain was purchased in 2018 by Monaco, a cryptocurrency Visa company bought it for a rumored $10 million. At the time, Hong Kong based Monaco held around $25 million in value and after purchase the company has now reported that it has increased its value to $200 million.

At the time of purchase, the idea was to give Monaco a facelift by creating its own cryptocurrency, MCO which would be made available on a peer to peer wallet and use the website as the face of the company. In consequence, after testing the wallet application, it would be made available in Singapore, Europe and the US.

At the time of posting, the plan has not completely had much to show but there have been some positive steps. For example, the company already put out test cards in Singapore, released a few mobile applications and videos. My take is that they better deliver this year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Satoshi Nakamoto is the mysterious creator of Bitcoin cryptocurrency, which was posted on a digital currency discussion platform ten years ago. As a matter of speculation, that is not even his real name but rather thought to be a pseudonym which is not known to either represent an individual, group of people or an entity altogether. He is in fact dubbed the ‘world’s most elusive billionaire’ In this article, we are going to explore what digital currency has done to the financial sector and the worth of the ‘father of crypto’ as such.

In 2017, Forbes posted an article on the impact that cryptocurrencies will have or were already having on the financial sector, positive impact that is and they could not have been truer. Here are their findings:

  • Efficiency – crypto transactions are faster and will potentially overrun the lengthy traditional banking processes
  • Disruptive to the point of adoption – digital currencies are more transparent which make it attractive to users
  • Cross border transactions – international money transfer is a concept that is currently being rolled out by cryptocurrency and the best part is that it is far less costly.
  • Digital currency is a better storage of wealth especially in dwindling economies like that of Zimbabwe and Venezuela.
  • The decentralized feature of blockchain technology reduces the risk of identity manipulation while transacting cryptocurrencies, compared to the rampant fraud in banks
  • Digital currencies will one day completely replace actual paper money or fiat as the innovation behind it is quickly taking over industries and businesses

How much is Satoshi Nakamoto worth?

The changes brought about by the invention of cryptocurrency does not stop there. It revolves around literally a lot more as you can see here. So it would be preposterous to not say that Satoshi has indeed become a force to reckon with in the financial sector. He/ she/ they has changed the world. And that does not come without its perks, top on the list being money.

Satoshi is currently ranked as number 44 on the world’s top 100 powerful financial influencers. He is believed to control almost a million Bitcoins which gives him a net worth of about $19.4 billion. And this is the current estimated value compared to the glamorous year Bitcoin was at an all-time high where a unit cost close to $20,000 at the close of 2017.

It is also worth mentioning that this financial genius’ impact on the world has been so great that ‘he’ got nominated for the 2016 Nobel peace prize in economics.  Unfortunately, this was not to be since the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto is unknown and there is like a standing rule regarding anonymous nominees of Nobel peace prizes. Either way, the consideration alone shows that cryptocurrency is revolutionary and has made an unmatched impact worldwide.

 

Bitacium will compete to innovate transboundary global fintech ecosystems

The trend continues its course, bringing more and more complete ecosystems. The cryptocurrency launching that are exclusively for point-to-point payments have ended. The trend has improved itself, and the emerging tokenization projects cover a rich ecosystem. The replication of traditional services inside the cyberspace continues, even improving traditional models when digitized.

In the fintech sector, global adoption of cryptocurrencies, tokens, smart contracts and multifunction wallets is beginning to be the norm. A sector as demanding as it is requires the latest advances and implementations to be competitive.

Bitacium offers an entire ecosystem through its wallet. In addition to the wallet, an ecosystem of services and interactions that will involve and evolve the XBOND token.Bitacium focuses on social network users, traders, merchants and e-commerce businesses.

On Bitacium website we read the following:

“We will constantly work to improve technology and users experience, solving everyday problems, one by one.”

So the ecosystem requires full asset management, peer communication and other implementations that we proceed to in details.

User retention depends on several factors such as platform versatility, security and intuitive interfaces

The retention of the user is very important for the platforms, a satisfied user gives his time and attention. The relationship between these services must be natural, without annoying intermediate steps, simply balanced. The Bitacium platform gives users the ability to access, transfer, buy, sell products and services from any location. In this aspect, versatility is guaranteed with the inclusion of Top cryptocurrencies and tokens. Another aspect related to the versatility of the platform is the management and / or use of foreign currency in the ecosystem. Bitacium offers a menu of services and utilities to meet the expectations of 2019.

On the other hand, security is vital in an era when physical attacks, robberies and coercion are being digitized. This trend consolidates at a growing rate. Therefore, a quality service requires advanced security. What would the whole proposed ecosystem serve in a system filled with gaps? The Ethereum network is the second in capitalization of the crypto market and its hash power offers such security. Bitacium has chosen  Ethereum network ecosystem to offer their community. We have recently witnessed how a 51% hack dealt a blow to the Ethereum Classic blockchain; This reinforces the need for powerful reinforcement ecosystems to guarantee the security of services and data.

The XBOND is a unique token created under the Erc-20 standard. It will be issued to the investors of the initial offer (ITO/early adopters ). This investors can acquire the tokens during token sale from their website. The XBOND can be used as collateral on the platform to obtain a loan. The amount of XBOND that a holder hodl determines how much the hodler receives from the platform.

XBOND will offer functions as collateral for loans

One of XBOND’s flagship functions is to support loans, the founding core of Bitacium demonstrates total confidence in its product. The XBOND will be the gateway to get loans from the platform at a low interest rate. This will provide liquidity in record time to users with a reserve in their possession as collateral support.

Sometimes, liquidity is needed in a short time period and for essential reasons we can not dispose of the entire amount. There is no problem with XBOND, if the token is held in the wallet it will provide the collateral function and the user will have the relevant amount. As a collateral utility to use, this will be another one of the multiple cases of use devised; so the ecosystem offers alternatives, variety and open business possibilities.

The decentralized exchange will form an important part of the Bitacium ecosystem

Multiple personalities of the crypto scenario have declared it publicly, the DEX exchanges are the future. Years later we witness how we can find several decentralized exchanges between the “top exchanges”. Instant functionality without off-line times makes DEX exchanges a 100% active tool.

Bitacium will offer complete user management of its own Altcoins; therefore it makes sense that the decentralized exchange completes the circle. This expands the possibilities of the ecosystem. The offered token, XBOND, works in the Ethereum network so it can operate in the DEX with multiple trading pairs. An added bonus, since XBOND holders win with the Bitacium exchange platform. The combination of a centralized exchange and a decentralized one begins to gain strength in the sector and Bitacium will offer the two options to its users.

The platform will offer multiple management options and social network functions to interact / negotiate between users, decentralized exchange provides the essential part of self-management exchange for the most passionate traders.

Customer loyalty, the Bitacium platform will reward users for their transactions

In addition to the rewards in the exchange, a more extensive model is proposed. In the most recent projects, it is observed that aspects such as the incentive for actions have gained strength. Earlier we commented that wallets increasingly provide more functions; these actions and their monitoring, open up new interaction routes between the platform and the user (p2p).

Taking advantage of these possibilities, Bitacium is implementng a system of rewards through CashBack, promotions and special discounts; the possibility of negotiating with other users, discussing business, signing agreements, all this in addition to making transactions with the XBOND token. The cases of use of the token begin to be multiple. On the website, they present a bbrief example user scenario that represents the possible benefits of being part of the ecosystem:

“For example, Consumer A buys the item from Dealer B at a cheaper price than the market price, both can chat and make transactions on the Bitacium platform, using XBOND to eliminate any transaction charges. money back bonus to buy through our merchant At the end of a negotiation session, both Consumer A, Merchant B, and all other users of the Bitacium platform receive a reward for shared use of the distributed token to participate in e-commerce agreements using the platform. “

The reward and consensus ecosystem will include and encourage without exclusion

The XBOND token offers is  recommended to all types of users, some cryptocurrencies and ecosystems reward certain types of actions, while others are the opposite side completely. The users of the ecosystem launched by Bitacium will obtain compensations whatever their actions. In addition to the cashback reward model, there is an alternative model associated with the platform’s earnings. Each user who holds XBOND tokens will obtain their proportional share of platform’s profits. We could say that it is a way for the company to return to investors the value created with their investment and early participation.

Other projects have opted for more limited incentive methods, which always exclude a part of the users. In this line we can say that they are non inclusive models for some users and incentivation model for others. The system designed for the Bitacium project and the XBOND token offers a whole menu of incentive possibilities to each user. This implies that both users who make a long-term investment (in the HODL style), and the most active traders and negotiators are satisfied.

The platform gives users the prominence they deserve, encouraging each and every one of them. Another aspect that reinforces the previous statement is the system of governance and voting. XBOND holders can vote to decide on consensus decision making and other details. This shows that the transparency and commitment of the company can benefit the members of the community, customers, followers and “hodlers”.

Guaranteed entertainment without leaving the Bitacium ecosystem in the Game Zone

We started by pointing out that the sector seems to have evolved towards more complete new creation projects. We pointed out, the importance of seeing that new cryptocurrencies or tokens are not limited purely to p2p transactions. In this line, Bitacium enriches its proposal even more. A section included in your system will offer an entire entertainment ecosystem; the BITACIUM GAME ZONE provides a space in which to have a good time between so much transfer space in which the XBOND token will also interact too.

From the documentation we verify that the game zone interacts in the token ecosystem by the following way. Users can play by swapping another altcoins to XBOND token, and then using XBOND as the game tax base currency. This implementation can increase the use of the token in an additional ways with much more volume.

In conclusion, we observed that the Bitacium project offers a very complete menu of services and interactions. With the market breathing fresh air after an overwhelming 2018, the new proposals of 2019 begins to stand strong.

Singapore based BitTorrent foundation announced that they are introducing a new cryptographic token called BTT, which will be run on the Tron Protocol. Justin Sun founder and CEO of both Tron and BitTorrent, stated that the aim of introducing the token is to create a token-based economy to make it easier for users around the world share their content directly to others online. BitTorrent was the first technology company to introduce peer to peer file sharing on the internet

Background

BitTorrent is a decentralized peer to peer file sharing protocol that was invented in 2001 to facilitate the transfer of large files around the internet and has over 1 billion users and over 100 million daily active users. It works by breaking down large files into smaller bits which use less internet bandwidth to download by multiple users. Please read here, for better grasp of how BitTorrent works.

The company was bought by blockchain startup Tron last year by Tron CEO Justin Sun for $140 million. At the time of acquisition, plans for BitTorrent had not been made public but it was general knowledge that a blockchain company obviously intended to use the protocol for some crypto function.

Tron acquired BitTorrent solely for the reason that it was the world’s largest decentralized peer to peer technology system. Before that, there had been rumors that that the owner and founder of Tron had been looking to purchase the technology company for their P-2-P file sharing and architecture system. Once Tron merged with it, it is now undoubtedly the largest functioning decentralized ecosystem.

BTT Launch

At the start of this year, Tron announced the launch of the BitTorrent token BTT, which is based on the Tron protocol. The BTT token has the following decentralized characteristics:

  • Content delivery service – it will enable service requesters to advertise bids and pay BTT for bandwidth so as to receive mass or a particular piece of content. Service providers will have to provide content that can be accessed to as many people as possible
  • Storage service – it will allow service requesters to pay for storage over time. Service providers will store some amount of data then provide proofs-of-storage to the service requester upon request. They will be able to download the stored data from the service for a pre-arranged fee. Service providers will therefore have to look for content which offers the highest payment rate over time.
  • Proxy service – to enable service requesters pay a client for the retrieval of content by URL such as mobile application users, who can retrieve web resources in bulk even with minimal internet connection services.

An article posted on 4th January stated that the token would be accessible to non-US accounts powered by binance, one of two tokens to launch on the platform and progressively be distributed by selective airdrops in the course of the month. BTT has 990 billion tokens which will be availed together with a wallet so that non-crypto users will be able to use it. One of the benefits of this token is that all pre-existing Tron users will automatically have access to BTT tokens. Find out more on the token white paper here.

 

 

The Token PDT will revolutionize tourism internationally blockchain
Tourism, an immense market in which millions of people manage or enjoy daily thousands of international flights. To the flights, we can add adjacent services and multiple local disciplines associated to the commerce that causes the affluence of tourists. It is the scenario in which the launch of Paradise Token, and its PDT token, is involved. This will make things difficult for the competition going forward.
The tourism sector is an ultracompetitive sector, so a successful innovative movement can lead to adoption by all market players. The fact is, that some newly created projects have tried to integrate tokens into the ecosystem, with serious difficulties. Not because of infrastructure difficulties, since the international tourism ecosystem is at the forefront; Many high-level stores already accept Bitcoin, and you can also enjoy new technologies and luxuries in their vicinity.

However, it is a sector with powerful and huge hotel networks; It is not easy to enter the large market that offers without a previous global infrastructure. ParadiseToken, has all the indicators of a solid and reinforced project due to its association with Intercontex Group. This association provides a potential reach to more than 120,000 entities among hotels, airlines and businesses; that is the spectacular figure that is handled. As part of the Intercontex Group they are associated with the largest group hotels in the world; The list is as extensive as it is striking: Hilton, Marriott, Wyndham, IHG, Jumeirah, Kempinski, Loews Hotels, RIU Hotels, Tokyu Hotels, Langham Hospitality Group and more.
 
Digitize and tokenize the ecosystem already forged, the challenge of the Token PDT for 2019

Obviously with hotel networks of such associated magnitudes, restaurants and any type of entertainment are involved. Therefore, the use cases are so varied that we will not stop to enumerate them. The basis and idea is to tokenize through existing relationships, a series of services more than complete. All this added to a large existing customer base. An example would be to offer ecosystem tokens to customers for visiting and having an exquisite / gourmet gastronomy chain associated.
Instead of creating a token and looking for the ecosystem in which to implement it; Adopting the digitization via blockchain of an already consolidated project seems more logical and less risky, clearly a point in favor. Paradisetoken offers to be able to use your PDT token across a global network. Having a direct and totally normalized service; It includes an extensive list of countries and the largest hotel chains, ready to make the reservation in minutes with the token.
Paying for vacations using the PDT Token is a clear example of what can be done from the beginning; so the initial infrastructure may seem like a network not seen until now in the ICO projects of 2017 and 2018. Without third parties and without surprise commissions, it is what p2p technologies offer and adopts the ParadiseToken motto. Remember that as a user, the holder of the token can instantly use the PDT to book hotels / restaurants / flights directly without third parties.
 
Details of the token and ecosystem PDT offered at the initial launch
The event records more events around the PDT token, but we stop to comment for a moment. The token will be part of a whole set of tools in the ecosystem protocol generated. PDT protocols provide developers with the foundation to build decentralized applications (dApps). These protocols are open source solutions for managing reserves / secure payments via blockchain. The PDT token is a utility token that is native to the Ethereum network, specifically a token of the Erc-20 standard.

Therefore, it is compatible with an extensive portfolio menu. Obviously, MyEtherWallet and Metamask are the best known; although there are many more compatible with the native tokens of the Ethereum network. The figures regarding the initial acquisition of the PDT token vary depending on specific details; for example, the date in which you participate. Taking into account these factors, the purchase price ranges between 10000 and 14000 PDT tokens for each Ether contributed. For what remains with it a 10,000 / 14,000: 1 ratio (PDT: ETH); all with a deadline of next March 9. At the end of the article we share a link to the sale of the token; we also recommend visiting both the website and the official documentation for more details:

 

  • First week bonus 40% | 14000 PDT = 1 Eth.
  • Second week 0% bonus | 10000 PDT = 1 Eth.
  • Third week 0% bonus | 10000 PDT = 1 Eth.
  • Fourth week 0% bonus | 10000 PDT = 1 Eth

What’s coming for 2019 in the PDT token ecosystem?

Once the initial sale is completed and the following stages are put into operation, the operations are more than relevant. We have been especially struck by the third quarter of the year, it is the most active within the planned operations. Some data that are detailed in your road map (RoadMap) so they are public data of the Paradise Token core. The estimated total cost of all operations for the third quarter is $ 1,700,000. The operations are the usual ones for such a magnitude project, such as the costs of AWS servers. we describe them below.
As mentioned earlier, for the third quarter it is expected that the reserve PDT Token executed by intelligent contract will be ready; with the built-in ecosystems of Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Bali. All this entails a constant, safe and globally available development for the sites involved. The purpose of the initial offer is to create a complete e-commerce solution. The first version of the confidence rating is among the objectives of the third quarter.

Developing a fully functional payment gateway with a user interface for e-commerce merchants completes the overall functionality. Since the trend of 2019 is being to carry all functionalities and services to the wallets. It is expected that therefore for the second half of the year an additional infrastructure will be developed to that already conformed to the magnitudes of the operations. In addition to the respective relevant security requirements with complete security functions (anti CSRF Token, AES encryption, 2FA) .

The established customer base can be incentivized by the associated shops and hotels
Once exposed a good part of the details, the ideas that come to mind are almost unlimited. Customer loyalty promotions, off-season campaigns to reactivate touristic areas; endless possibilities thanks to the p2p tokenization of traditional ecosystems. An established base of clients from entities such as the Hilton, Marriott, Tokyu Hotels or Langham Hospitality Group chains can enjoy the incentives of using the PDT token for their vacations very early.

The EBIC will be holding an exhibition event for the first time ever in Vienna on the 28th of  February for three days to discuss business models based on cutting-edge blockchain technology and their impact on the society.

The details of the Congress will be the following topics:

  • How blockchain business models affect a variety of markets.
  • How blockchain technology affects the development of society with different innovative opportunities for organizations to adopt efficient systems and processes.
  • Get expert insights from successful blockchain startups regarding advertising implications on security concerns.
  • Potential blockchain and cryptocurrency regulations and the impact it will have on the industry.
  • The working mechanism for crowdfunding and how ICOs trump traditional financial systems.
  • Look at the adoption of blockchain across different industries such as healthcare, innovation, tourism and such like and if they have succeeded or failed and the recommendations thereof.

This congress is brought together by the European Blockchain Partnership which was formed by 26 Member States in 2018 in the pursuit of the adoption of blockchain technology. All of these member states had made significant strides in testing and applying blockchain systems and in the words of Mariya Gabriel, the commissioner for Digital Economy and Society;

‘In future, the majority of public services will use blockchain technology. Blockchain presents a great opportunity for Europe and Member States to revamp and reinvent their information systems, to promote user trust and protection of personal data, help create new business opportunities and create new areas of leadership, for the benefit of citizens, public services and businesses. The Partnership launched today will enable Member States join forces with the European Commission to turn the enormous potential of blockchain technology into better services for their citizens’.

The Partnership came into existence following the concerns brought about in 2017 after the first blockchain technology conference held in Brussels where it was not lost on the European Commission that blockchain technology and artificial intelligence had a huge potential of affecting the financial sector, administrations, businesses and the society as well. With this in mind, the commission sponsored research into the blockchain trend and formed the EU Blockchain Observatory Forum to present their findings.
In the spirit of the Declaration, European countries that are signatories agree to recognize and harness the many opportunities that blockchain technology presents to transform digital services in Europe. Each member state is to also nominate a representative who will work with the European Commission to execute the following two agendas:

  • Identifying existing cross-border digital public sector services that could benefit from blockchain business models.
  • Making recommendations after thorough research to the commission on blockchain technology models that could guarantee the success of its implementation in both the private and public sector.
     
    Ireland was one of the latter signatories having ratified the declaration in 2018 and today signed into law a bill that aims to regulate digital currencies and their use, as proposed by the anti-money laundering orders of the European Blockchain partnership. The bill is welcomed since it is giving credence to the criminal justice system and empowers the Criminal Asset Bureau to pursue suspicious digital transactions.
    The formation of the partnership and the fact that it is already making strides in recommending the adoption and innovation of blockchain into business places Europe on the front line on matters regulation. The application of the technology across borders is welcomed by the member states due to the changing economic status while still providing the highest levels of trust and privacy among users.

On the 31st Of May 2018, Tron achieved independence from Ethereum and Launched its own Mainnet with the Intention of being a fully functional Public Blockchain that supports Creation and development of decentralized Apps (dApps) .

With 183 Days of Trons Mainnet being active, this is what it has been able to achieve:

  • More Transaction Volumes as compared to Ethereum
  • More accounts as compared to EOS
  • More than 1Million registered users by 12/24/2018
  • More than 80 dApps  in 60 days of its TVM (Dapp) Launch
  • Top 10 Cryptocurrencies by Market capitalization

 

What Does Justin Sun Hope to achieve in 2019

  • Break into the Top 5 Cryptocurrencies by Market Capitalization
  • Make Tron Network bigger than Ethereum’s
  • Onboard  Bit torrents 100M users on to the Blockchain

A decade ago, the digital assets concepts was introduced into the financial world. Since then, there has been over 1000 individual cryptocurrencies formed aside from the original currency Bitcoin. Before Bitcoin came into existence, there had been an attempt at creating encrypted online currencies like Bit Gold and B-Money which did not really come to development.

Then came in the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto who posted the paper called Bitcoin on a cryptocurrency discussion forum and the rest is history. Fast forward to the eventful 2018 where the price correction was so severe that the losses of investors was ridiculous.

There are certain developments expected in 2019 by investors and cryptopreneurs.

  • Institutional money will be invested into Bitcoin ETF

Institutional bodies are warming up to cryptocurrency and the train is not about to slow down. For example, Ohio State in November 2018 rolled out a system that accepts taxes being paid in Bitcoin. For investors, adopting to changing financial times is a must and the adoption of blockchain technology is not unexpected. One of the world’s largest hedge fund managers Fidelity, also introduced cryptocurrency trading services to its clients. Once institutional investors pour money into cryptocurrency it will cause a spike on the prices of the currencies invested into.

Once the SEC approves Bitcoin ETF, institutions will get the guarantee they need just in case they are still unsure about executing their plans and raise the value of Bitcoin, much like the first ETF for gold came up and increased its value by 300% in 2003.

  • Increase of decentralized exchanges

At the moment, decentralized exchanges still see lower volumes than centralized exchanges despite the technological and regulatory advances in cryptocurrency. This could be because the majority of decentralized transactions are restricted to privacy oriented cryptocurrencies ZCash and Monero which are actually dominating these transactions. Platforms like Ethereum which operate with smart contracts also prefer to use decentralized exchanges, which will hopefully increase in volume with time, especially because Ethereum is performing really well compared to most altcoins.

  • Security Tokens Adoption Increase

Security tokens are much safer than crowd funded Initial Coin Offers (ICOs). Security tokens came up to confirm ownership of digital assets, which means that the transaction of representation is done on paper, therefore complying with legal requirements. Security tokens are legalized by smart contracts which are used for the cryptocurrency transactions.

There are benefits to adoption of security tokens:

  1. Expansion of the crypto investor market
  2. Better methods to market products and services
  3. Security tokens are more efficient capital markets product than traditional securities.
  4. Security tokens will restore stability to the market.
  • Revolution of decentralized applications

Traditional centralized transaction applications have been in place since fiat was introduced. It has now become increasingly clear that unless blockchain technology is adopted, a lot of financial institutions will be left out of the economic revolution taking place.

The resistance facing blockchain technology is simply because eliminating third parties to fiscal contracts seems like a loss of fundamental trust. One of the challenges faced in 2018 was the resistance to cheaper more efficient decentralized blockchain application.

  • Valuation of cryptocurrencies to stabilize the market

Cryptocurrency prices are affected by a lot of factors but that which stands out is exactly the same as that of Fiat value. Demand and supply, which is a basic economic value. Simple, if the demand of a cryptocurrency is high and the supply is low, the price will increase and vice versa. However, that is not all that affects cryptocurrency prices; there are many other factors such as regulation, competition, stability and quantity of the digital resource.

Cryptocurrency is literally the hottest economic development right now and granted, it is still going through intense evolution which poses a problem when it comes to determining their value. First, there is no limit of cryptocurrencies compared to like Fiat and say, precious metals. Anyone can come up with a coin but it is worthless unless people recognize it, adopt it and begin to trade it. Kindly have a look here on the different ways the value of cryptocurrencies are determined.
