Blockchain Platform ARK Forms Partnership with Decentralized Exchange Blockport

Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain Platform ARK has announced that it is currently engaged in a strategic relationship with Blockport, a decentralized trading platform designed for beginners and advanced level users alike. hello

January 12th, 2018, Lons-le-Saunier, France: ARK has unveiled a strategic partnership with a new promising decentralized crypto trading platform; Blockport. The move comes after ARK announced a worldwide mass contact movement aimed at educating and apprising the public regarding ARK’s groundbreaking features.

The latest development from ARK shows that apart from public education and awareness, the company has decided to show its real consumer adoption value to the public. ARK founders believe that once developers and ICOs get to see the useful and swift application of the ARK platform, the popularity and anticipation of the full version of the platform will increase, thus benefiting the platform’s future prospects.

What’s in it for Both Teams?

According to ARK sources, the company’s partnership with Blockport is because of mutually beneficial reasons. ARK is in the business to deliver easy tools for mass level adoption and Blockport is a decentralized exchange and such that it needs to incorporate user-friendly features on its system. Exchanges should be made easily operable and Blockport has therefore reinforced their vision with a simple motto: “Everyone should be able to trade cryptocurrencies”

The partnership began with the team from Blockport connecting with the ARK platform and developing a crucial synergy between the two entities. Blockport’s decentralization quest involves pegging cryptocurrencies to all major fiat currencies available. Blockport’s vision is that eventually all human elements will be removed from the day-to-day operations of their exchange, representing a significant advantage over competition. The ARK team is expected to help blockport in achieving all of their user-friendly applications.

CFO of ARK, Lars Rensing, is joining the Blockport team in an advisory role according to company sources. He will primarily be advising the decentralized trading company on how to use ARKs capabilities in simplifying the trading experience for users from all backgrounds. According to official sources, novices will also be able to set up their accounts and trade in it with ease. ARK will be crucial in achieving this promise. Lars will also help in developing a strategy which will be effective for both companies.

ARK is a new cryptocurrency ecosystem focused on consumer adoption through a series of innovative core technology advancements, practical applications for everyday use, and strategic partnerships with industry leaders.

ChronoBank’s Mikhail Savchenko Joins as Advisor to Caviar – Crypto and Real Estate in One Token

Bitcoin Press Release: Crypto Innovator Joins Caviar Team of Global Advisors, Caviar Pre-Sale Runs until December 7th, Goal to Raise $25 Million

4 December 2017, The Cayman Islands – The Caviar team, who successfully launched their pre-sale December 1 with a pioneering approach to create a dual-purpose token and crowdfunding platform built on the Ethereum blockchain, announced that Mikhail (Mike) Savchenko, CTO of ChronoBank, has joined as an advisor. Caviar’s token offers access to stable real estate and cryptocurrencies, with built-in downside protection and automatic diversification. The pre-sale will run through December 7; and the crowdsale will begin on December 12 with the goal of raising $25 million.

Born with a ZX Spectrum in his hand, Savchenko is a veteran programmer with more than 20 years experience of software development, security and cryptography. His CV includes an MBA in IT Project Management and he has applied his skills to blockchain development since the early days of bitcoin. Most recently, he won a fintech hackathon at which he presented a trusted document exchange based on IPFS and Ethereum that forms a key part of ChronoBank’s functionality.

On joining the advisory team, why he thinks traditional investors need to ‘wake up to smell the crypto’ and what’s coming in 2018, Mike shared the following in a Caviar blog post:

  •     Why Caviar, Why Now for ICO: “I really like the idea of real estate tokenization. We’ve been discussing different options in that field many times. So when I got an offer to join Caviar’s team as an advisor, I accepted it immediately.”
  •     Caviar, a Project for Non-Cryptos & Cryptos Alike: “Caviar will make traditional market investors focus their attention  on the cryptocurrency world, while also making cryptocurrency market players focus their attention on real estate. I’m sure that both sides will win. Traditional investors should immediately pay attention before it is too late to join this new game.”
  •     What’s Coming for the Market in 2018: “Big financial institutions are going to join the cryptocurrency world this autumn, so I believe next year all bets will grow significantly.”

In addition to Savchenko, Caviar’s team of advisors includes the esteemed blockchain investment expert David Drake, Chairman of LDJ Capital; Ivan Labrie, a top trader on Tradingview.com; James Sowers, ICO Advisor, Angel Investor and Crypto Capitalist; Gabriel Jarrosson, a French entrepreneur, crypto investor and a founder of a private crypto investment group; NASA-recognized inventor and data scientist David Wirth; and James Jamil, Executive Director of the Wall Street Blockchain Alliance

We’re honored that Mike has joined our global team of advisors, further validating our approach to diversify cryptocurrency investments. ChronoBank is an impressive innovator and we’re excited to have Mike’s technical talent as well as market insights contributed to our project,” said Kirill Bensonoff, partner at Caviar.

Caviar Team with 5-Year Track Record Pioneers Dual-Purpose Token for Crypto and Real Estate, Pre-Sale Begins November 28

Bitcoin Press Release: Global Advisors Join Established Caviar Team of Tech, Finance & Real-Estate Veterans with 5-Yr Track Record of Successful Multi-Million-Dollar Real Estate Debt Fund to Offer Solution-Based Approach in Diversifying Cryptocurrency Investments

28 November 2017, The Cayman Islands – Caviar has announced that the pre-sale of its ICO will begin on November 28 for its pioneering approach to build a dual-purpose token and crowdfunding platform built on the Ethereum blockchain. Caviar’s token offers access to stable real estate and cryptocurrencies, with built-in downside protection and automatic diversification. The team behind Caviar has successfully managed a multi-million-dollar real estate debt fund since 2013, and brings years of experience and research to this project. Caviar is powered by Intelligent Predictive Model (IPM), an artificial intelligence algorithm, allowing for stronger predictive power and more effective asset allocation. In addition, Caviar Platform will allow real estate developers to raise funds for their upcoming projects, and for Caviar token holders to earn additional rewards by staking their tokens. Caviar launches its pre-sale on November 28 with the goal of raising $25 million.

Caviar’s team of advisors includes the esteemed blockchain investment expert David Drake, Chairman of LDJ Capital; Ivan Labrie, a top trader on Tradingview.com; James Sowers, ICO Advisor, Angel Investor and Crypto Capitalist; Gabriel Jarrosson, a French entrepreneur, crypto investor and a founder of a private crypto investment group; NASA-recognized inventor and data scientist David Wirth; Mikhail Savchenko, CTO at Chronobank.io; and James Jamil, Executive Director of the Wall Street Blockchain Alliance. Commenting on what differentiates Caviar and their reasons to join, several advisors shared the following:

 

  • Investors Uniquely Offered Real Assets: “While there are immense profits to be made from the volatility of the market, investors of cryptocurrency are offered little in the way of real assets. Caviar has a compelling offering with a diversified approach in real estate, cryptocurrencies and crypto-assets that lowers the cost of management, reduces entry costs for investors, and removes the problem of illiquidity associated with traditional real estate investments. I am proud to join Caviar’s innovative team of blockchain, real estate, technology and finance experts as they prepare for their ICO,” said Drake.
  • Hedging Exposure in a Bear Market: “In my experience as a trader, I found that Caviar’s offering could be a great alternative for storing value in crypto, without having to deal with security or volatility risks. The fund would deal with positioning in and out of crypto assets, and with security of funds which would result in lower risk than holding any other crypto asset. During a bear market or market correction, crypto assets outside of fiat pegged ones, would suffer a loss in value, which could be severe. An individual holding BTC or any other coin, would have significant risk if holding funds at an exchange, but would also have a hard time securing funds unless tech savvy: it’s a real problem, having no way to hedge exposure without dealing with custodians and associated risks due to how correlated all coins are, and dependent on BTC. I haven’t seen a similar project, outside of the ones that offer tokenized fund management — which aren’t doing too well for now,” Labrie stated.
  • From a Data Perspective — Caviar Different in a Good Way: “Caviar has a two-pronged approach to ensuring profitability for token holders. It relies on hard assets (in this case, short term loans for real estate improvement) to provide limited downside protection, and also a unique predictive model (IPM) I helped develop, which will be used to build a robust and aggressive hedge-fund-like portfolio of novel crypto assets and cryptocurrencies. Unlike other ICO’s on the market, such a system will use an artificial intelligence engine which draws upon large databases collected and aggregated by automated systems. The engine will allow us to capitalize on unique opportunities in the cryotocurrency markets and build positions quicker than other ICO’s,” Wirth stated.

 

Real Estate a Key Role in Diversification Strategy

In a recent Caviar blog post, partner Guy Neumann further explains real estate’s role in Caviar’s diversification strategy. Caviar combines large cap and most stable cryptocurrencies, select new token projects, and real estate, utilizing its’ proprietary Intelligent Predictive Model in order to perfectly time investment decisions. Caviar is the successor to Caviar Capital, which, in the past five years, successfully financed dozens of redevelopment projects and has a 0% default rate, 0 late payments and an average IRR (internal rate of return) of 16% per year. Since its inception, Caviar Capital has consistently outperformed S&P 500 Real Estate and S&P 500 Bond indices by over 300%.

According to Neumann, Caviar’s team requires borrowers to have demonstrated a history of completing at least three real estate development projects in the past. “We work with seasoned developers, those who take their business seriously and do it full time,” noted Neumann.

One of those established customers is Corey Kosiensky, a Connecticut-based Real Estate Developer and Caviar Capital’s client since 2013, who commented on his experience of working with the team: “It’s been a pleasure working with Caviar’s team for the past 4 years. True professionals, Caviar has been a valued partner, helping my real estate development business expand much faster than I anticipated.”

Higher Returns for Real Estate Investment & Diversified Portfolios for Traditional Investors with Digital Currency

By combining crypto assets and real estate, Caviar aims to offer a higher rate of return than traditional real estate investments, while maximizing downside protection. In addition, Caviar will provide traditional investors with the financial benefits of a more diversified portfolio that includes digital currencies. In a recently published back-tested study of Caviar’s historical performance, partner Alex Shvayetsky noted that:

 

“If history were to repeat itself (of course, we cannot guarantee future performance), then based on distributions alone, anyone buying tokens at pre-sale with a 30% discount (token price would be $0.07) would triple their investment within one year. These results are not taking into account any token appreciation, which, based on historical performance and Caviar’s buyback mechanism (future performance is not guaranteed), could be significantly more. And, as impressive as these numbers are, Caviar’s long-term advantage would be even more evident in the bear crypto market. During market downturns, which are inevitable, Caviar would be in a unique position to shift more funds to real estate and still provide returns to investors, as well as exposure to real assets as collateral.”

 

Although cryptocurrency traders can profit from the volatility of the market, they are offered little in the way of real assets.  Caviar provides a unique opportunity for crypto-investors to diversify their portfolio through exposure to real estate.  Caviar’s tokenization approach to investments in real estate, cryptocurrencies and crypto-assets lowers the cost of management, reduces entry costs for investors, and removes the problem of illiquidity associated with traditional real estate investments, as partner Kirill Bensonoff notes in the article “Caviar Token Economics: Liquidity, NAV and Future Growth Explained.”

PlusCoin Token Holders Will Get a Massive 20% Discount in Black Friday Sales, Nov. 24

22nd November 2017, Moscow, Russia – The PlusCoin team has exciting news for PLC token holders and DS Plus users. The Marketplace is opening once more for its Black Friday sale, making it the perfect time to try PlusCoin. PLC token holders will get a 20% discount on all purchases for 24 hours. This will give token holders ample room to get all the items they need on their wish lists.

If there are any PLC holders who missed the last sale, now is their second chance to enjoy a 20% discount. November has never been a better time to get into PlusCoin. This month, the Black Friday sale falls on Nov. 24. As Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days, PLC token holders can avoid the crowds and the stress by shopping online, where shoppers can check the various deals from DS PLUS partners.

PLC holders are sure to look forward to the last Friday of each month until Marketplace launch. Using PlusCoin, Black Friday continues even after November. Be sure to act quickly, however, as this may be the second-to-last sale of this kind, this year.

Moving Forward: Excitement for PlusCoin Holders

The PlusCoin project gives a modern twist to loyalty promotions by using DS Plus, the first fully user-friendly crypto cash-back system. DS Plus gives businesses a convenient way to attract and retain customers. PLC token holders can look forward to products from various corporate partners, such as KFC, Reebok, Burger King, X5 Retail Group, and more. Users earn PlusCoin rewards whenever they make a purchase from partners.

What’s in Store for PlusCoin?

The excitement continues with key features under development such as a native P2P platform, so that PlusCoin holders can trade PLC with one another. This is the first step to integrating PLC into the wider market and eventually into mobile marketing applications worldwide.

Another feature to look forward to is the Marketplace aggregator tool, which enables the conversion of fiat into PlusCoin, and vice-versa. When the tool is complete, it will allow people who have no background of cryptocurrency to purchase items and services using PlusCoin, as fiat currency will be converted on the spot.

Then there is the upcoming “cryptoscoring” feature; an analytical platform for scoring users. It allows partners to use crediting for different purposes, such as P2P lending and credit institutions. Upon completion, these features will enable PlusCoin token holders to buy more and do more with PlusCoin.

About PlusCoin and DS Plus

The PlusCoin project was launched to popularize blockchain technologies, giving the average user a gateway to using cryptocurrency in everyday life. DS Plus is a platform where the PlusCoin currency is integrated. It is based on the Ethereum Blockchain.

MatchPool Bring Their Community Blockchain Tool up to Speed with Updated Alpha Version 2.1

Bitcoin Press Release: Innovative platform MatchPool have made their latest leap in developing their decentralized, Blockchain-based platform, which seeks to allow users world-wide to connect with each other. With this view comes the release of the MatchPool Alpha 2.1 version.

November 21st, 2017 – Tel Aviv, Israel – Israeli MatchPool certainly have high hopes and ambitions for the future of wealth transfer within a unique asset: Connections. It has been touted time and time again that it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. MatchPool certainly have a good understanding of this concept, and have already begun developing their decentralized Blockchain platform based upon this, which is currently in its’ Alpha stage.

A recent announcement by MatchPool announces their Alpha 2.1 stage, which can be accessed using this link.  Before Launching Matchpool Alpha 2.1: Claim your XGUP & Install Metamask. XGUP works just like GUP for the demo.

What’s New on the platform?

There is a new area inside Matchpool called “Intros”, where Pool Owners and Pool Members can manage their introductions, matches, messages and ratings.

Pool Owners can receive Intro Requests from Pool Members that want to privately message other members of the same Pool. The Pool Owner can break the ice between two members by adding an additional ice-breaker message to their introduction.

Pool Members can request to be introduced to new members. They can also manage their incoming Intro Requests and privately message and rate other members they’ve successfully matched with.

How Matchmaking & Intros work

Requesting an Introduction to another Member

Once a Matchpool member has joined a community Pool, the member can publicly chat with other members of the Pool, and can privately chat to other members by sending a Request Intro to the Pool Owner (Matchmaker).

Once Request Intro is selected, the Intros panel appears in the Introduce Me tab and the member can write a message to the Pool Owner about why they would like to be introduced to the other member. Once this is sent, it will appear in the Pool Owners Intros panel under Intro Requests.

Introducing Members with an Ice Breaker

After an Intro Request has been sent to the Pool Owner, the Pool Owner will decide to accept or decline the intro. The Pool Owner can write an optional Ice Breaker message before clicking Make Intro to create the connection.

Accepting an ‘Incoming Intro‘

Once an Intro is created by a Pool Owner, the Intro Icebreaker is sent to the desired member and it appears in the member’s My Intros inbox.

Messaging a New Match

Once two members have successfully been introduced, they can message each other in the Messages tab within the Intros panel — Voila, a new match is made.

Rating the Quality of an Intro

After the intro has been accepted and match has been made, both members are shown an Intro Rating pop-up box and asked to rate the intro quality after a number of message exchanges.

Both members can rate how beneficial the Intro and the Ice Breaker message was between 1 and 5 drops. When both members have rated the Intro, the Pool Owner’s Intro Rating Score updates on their profile, reflecting the overall quality of all Intros made in every Pool they own.

Additional In-Web App Features

We’ve made some subtle improvements to the user interface and re-positioned a couple of features, including:

  • A new header with search and more minimal interface.
  • Pool navigation tabs now appear above the Pool cover image.
  • New Pool’ & ‘New Discussion’ Notification Labels
  • Total Member Count & Matches shown on Pool Thumbnails
  • Discussions’ to become ‘Chat’.
  • (A future article will detail more on Pool ‘Chat’ development)
  • Show / Copy / Hide Ethereum Address

What’s next?

Enabling Private Messages without Intros

Pool Owners will get an option to turn on and off ‘Intros’. This would allow members of the Pool to chat with other members by sending a ‘message request’ or a ‘like’ to the other member, bi-passing the matchmaker’s introduction. If a private message thread begins between those two users, a match is created. If the Pool Owner enables this option and disables Intros, the quality of the matches between members is likely to decrease, but the quantity of matches inside the pool will increase.

On-boarding New Users

We’ll be improving and testing the on-boarding process including a new homepage design and Pool creation process.

Seamless GUP Payments

Payments are currently made via Metamask, which adds friction to the transactions made inside the app. We will be allocating resources to research and develop payments without requiring Metamask.

Community Feedback

We’re continually testing and bug fixing at the Matchpool HQ. If you have suggestions, ideas and feedback to send back to the team, send in your comments and suggestions to the Community Forum. If you’re new to Matchpool, join over 1,000 members in our Telegram channel

African ISP Cajutel to Use Blockchain to Increase Internet Access

Bitcoin Press Release: Cajutel believes blockchain technology can help Africa gain better internet access

November 21, 2017, Bissau, Guinea — Blockchain implementation is a broad subject when applied to matters of innovation and development. Using the Blockchain to achieve developmental goals is a phenomenon that is gaining popularity among the developing countries of the world, where basic infrastructure is still a primary need of citizens.

Two most important elements of technology
In most parts of Africa, infrastructure such as electricity, potable water, access roads, Internet among others are unavailable, not because of a lack of resources, but due to the absence of honest, transparent and secure technical and administrative processes.

Leveraging the Blockchain is enabling a lot of companies to achieve developmental goals, by eliminating the hitherto human and bureaucratic obstacles that have slowed down these regions so far.

Along with electricity, Internet service is one of the most important technological elements needed for any nation to keep up with global advancement, yet many developing countries are still left out of this opportunity of economic advancement.

Blockchain enables global participation
High speed Internet provider, Cajutel, is using Blockchain technology as a tool to raise capital for the development of Internet services in Guinea Bissau and Guinea.

The CEO of Cajutel, Andreas Fink, explains that his company has embraced the Blockchain and ICO methodology of raising capital, in other to open up opportunities for investment to smaller investors.

This has become necessary due to the existing difficulty in getting huge investors and venture capitalists to embrace the project using existing traditional processes.

According to Fink, his company’s ICO is different from most other token sales because in Cajutel’s case, company shares are exchanged for cryptocurrencies. Unlike other ICOs where tokens bought by investors exist afterwards as independent entities in the cryptocurrencies marketplace, Cajutel’s tokens are tied directly to the project as shares.  

This implies that investors are offered the opportunity for long term investment benefits, as purchasing such shares automatically qualifies an investor as a shareholder of the company.

Fink says:

        “In our case, we are using the ICO in a more traditional way, which means that we are raising funds against the shares of the company, because at the end of the day you will have investors who put money down and expecting a return, they want to participate in your revenue which you are giving up.”

Giving the nation a whole new outlook
For what it is, Internet service stands out as a platform upon which numerous aspects of human and regional development must rely.

From financial services to other basic processes of data storage and management, the role of the Internet has become very crucial, especially over the last three decades.

As a tool for national development, Cajutel is looking for an investment of $30 mln to cover Guinea-Bissau and Guinea (the big plan), or a minimum of $12 mln for a slower building plan to only cover Guinea-Bissau.

This is a target that the company plans to use in achieving what it describes as a revolutionary nation-building procedure, considering the fact that its present competitors are just two mobile operators MTN and Orange, offering Internet speeds that are limited to 256kbps ($60/month) while business offerings go up to 1Mbps ($1400/month).

Cajutel’s vision is to build the most cost effective broadband access network, and to provide state of the art communications for its customers – thus creating a big boost to the education and economy. The company also plans on delivering affordable, reliable Internet communication to the local market, and is focused on providing the best performing mobile data network for Guinea-Bissau and Guinea.

Another key area where Cajutel plans to improve in serving the nation, is improving the speed of Internet to a level that has never been achieved in the region.

               “Catujel will be the fastest Internet provider in the area for the public, outperforming existing operators offering by a factor of 10x to 100x with an at least 30 percent cheaper price. This enables Internet technologies not currently present in West Africa simply due to lack of bandwidth and too high prices. It makes it affordable for the general public to get access to the Internet. That is why only less than 2 percent have access today. So there’s 98 percent available to be grabbed by us”, says Fink.

Africa is making progress
Internet service is a real world project that cuts across all parts of the globe. The globalization phenomenon is essentially lubricated by Internet technology, therefore for purposes of national and regional growth and development, the Internet is an essential tool.

Africa and the rest of the developing world are implementing the Blockchain as a tool to enable them to catch-up with their peers, in terms of infrastructural development. This is largely achieved by reducing the level of human and faulty administrative interference, as the Blockchain guarantees transparent, secure and trustless working processes.

MyTrackNet – Connecting Users & Finding Lost Items With Or Without a Bluetooth Tracking Device

Bitcoin Press Release: Greece-based MyTrackNet give details of their revolutionary lost-and-found platform designed to reward and benefit users, and offer information about their upcoming pre-ICO and main ICO scheduled for 28th November onwards.

November 15th, 2017 – Athens, Greece: MyTrackNet platform connects the owners of Bluetooth tracking devices of any manufacturer into a global unified network for scanning for lost items, overcoming competitive restrictions, and also using crypto tokens based on one of the fastest growing blockchain platform, Waves, for payments and rewards for finding lost items. The MyTrackNet mobile application will enter the market at the end of 2017 with its’ Alpha version, and will facilitate the issuance and distribution of the system tokens between November 28th and December 22th of 2017, via a public ICO.

The goal of the platform is to create a network with a wide geographical coverage, which will include both users of Bluetooth trackers of different manufacturers and people without trackers taking advantage of the manual enquire feature which is working by providing a photo, a description and the last known location of a lost item/person/pet. The universal integration of MyTrackNet with trackers of any brand and the scheme that rewards users effortlessly solves one of the key problems in this market – the separated and sporadic CrowdGPS networks.

Any member of the MyTrackNet platform can submit an inquiry for a lost item/person or pet, which will always be free of charge. However, a user will be given the option to issue a bounty in the form of a reward within the platform for the user who will assist in locating their lost item. In this way, the amount of users who will be willing to help in finding a lost item will greatly increase with the reward given, since there will be a reward in the form of tokens or fiat currency.

The platform will also be rewarding the users who passively contribute to the network by allowing their mobile Bluetooth-enabled device to scan for lost items in the background while they go about their day, moving around the city or industrial areas. This will expand the capabilities and the efficiency of the network even farther.

The MyTrackNet platform is aiming to attract individuals from over 20 million users of Bluetooth tracking devices, most notably from the three top-selling tracking brands as well as everyday users who are looking for an extra income. In addition, small suppliers of these devices, which currently amount to about 25 companies, will be integrated into the system as well.

The scanning capabilities of the devices is also expected to increase more than four times since the new Bluetooth 5 has already been implemented into the latest smartphones, which allows users to find a lost item from a distance of up to 100 meters.

MTN Pre-ICO and ICO

Using MyTrackNet Tokens (MTN) the users will be able to provide a bonus for finding lost items, subscribe to premium features of the service, and buy trackers and various other products from the partners of MyTrackNet. The platform will provide an opportunity to advertise products and services of external partners to the audience of its’ users for MTN. The total amount of tokens is planned to be 100,000,000.

The Pre-ICO will see 11,000,000 MTN tokens made available, for a price of $0.06/MTN. Contributors can use Bitcoin, Waves, Litecoin, and Ethereum to take part in the ICO, with contributors in Waves receiving a 20% bonus to their balance.
