Bankera ICO is Now Live: Be Part of the Banking Revolution

November 30, 2017, Vilnius, Lithuania — In September, Bankera (https://bankera.com/) completed one of the biggest pre-ICO sales to date after raising 25 million Euros and gathering more than 16,000 contributors. Now, after much anticipation, its’ ICO sale officially opened to the public on November 27th.

Bankera is building a revolutionary bank for the blockchain era, which will eventually become a one-stop store for all financial services. It is an operational fork of SpectroCoin (https://spectrocoin.com), a cryptocurrency solution service with an existing base of 490,000 clients and more than 64,000 cards issued.. Since it has already developed a core infrastructure equivalent to traditional banks, a natural extension of the company is to leverage its’ existing technology to build Bankera.

Bankera’s Updates

Bankera has built a team of over 50 talented professionals with expertise in diverse fields. Audrius Ziugzda, an expert banker, is the latest addition to company’s advisory board. He brings with him over 20 years of experience in the banking sector, mainly in the M&A, banking operations and strategic fields. He joins names such as Lon Wong, president of the NEM.io foundation, Antanas Guoga, a member of the European Parliament, and Eva Kaili, also a member of the European Parliament.

Bankera’s Services

In order to operate in a spectrum of different fiat currencies and to facilitate cross-border transactions, Bankera will seek banking licenses in several key jurisdictions. This will help to lower the number of counterparties, resulting in reduced costs for the end consumer.

It will also offer core banking services, such as savings and loans accounts, as well as low-cost investment products, such as exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and crypto funds. Through Bankera’s MVP, SpectroCoin, contributors and clients can already use its services including fiat and cryptocurrency wallets, exchange and payment processing services. They can also order cryptocurrency debit cards, which can be linked to Bitcoin, DASH, Ethereum, or NEM wallets.

Bankera’s business development strategy, led by Craig Grant, who formerly worked at the Paysafe Group and Currencycloud, continues to deliver innovative and unique results. Most recently, the team released the demo version of Bankera’s exchange platform and the ability for its users to claim International bank account numbers (IBAN).

Bankera’s Own Exchange Platform

As the world of blockchain technology continues to grow and diversify, Bankera realised that was a demand for a viable product that would address the needs of all of its users. SpectroCoin’s #1 focus has been on giving its users a platform to purchase, sell and trade Cryptocurrency, which has therefore led to a solution tailored for that in regards of user experience, interface and cost structure. As trading becomes more widespread, Bankera continues to adapt to the always-changing market. As such, they have developed an in house, cost-effective exchange platform that will give its users the ability to trade at a most lower cost.

Bankera’s exchange will support most cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, DASH, Ethereum, NEM, Litecoin to name but a few as well as ERC20 and NEM mosaic tokens. The company will be working closely with ICO contributors and cryptocurrency users throughout the project development, since it aims to develop a product that fits the needs of the community.

How To Buy Tokens

On November 27th Bankera has launched its main ICO sale which together with pre-ICO has already raised over 30 million euros with over 23,000 investors and counting. During the ICO, 30% of the tokens are available for sale to the public at the price of 0.017 EUR on SpectroCoin platform. ICO contributors can choose from more than 20 payment methods when to purchase their BNK tokens. These include a variety of cryptocurrencies, such as ETH, BTC, DASH and XEM, and fiat currencies like EUR, GBP, and USD.

Throughoutthe ICO, Bankera will continue to offer a weekly net transactional revenue share for all token holders. After the ICO, the company aims to obtain a banking license and transition to a fully operational banking service for both, fiat and cryptocurrencies.

BitDegree Challenges Coursera and HackerRank’s Phenomenon by Gearing up With Blockchain

Bitcoin Press Release: BitDegree, an Ethereum-based application, has the potential to completely change the way people pursue higher education.  

September 29, 2017, Vilnius, Lithuania – BitDegree is the world’s first Ethereum blockchain and smart-incentives-based online platform for decentralized education and tech talent acquirement.

Designed to address the higher education needs of the present-day labor market, BitDegree is a must-have tool for businesses to recruit tech talent and shape global education to their needs through smart-incentives-powered token scholarships. Ideally summed up, BitDegree is Coursera and HackerRank merged together, based on Ethereum blockchain.

The tech education company has announced its upcoming ICO plans, which are scheduled on 2017 Q4.

BitDegree takes learning to a new, interactive model that is particularly enticing to today’s workers. By using an Octalysis framework of gamification design, going through the process of educating oneself is as simple and exciting as playing a fun video game.

The inclusion of smart incentives and interactive learning will allow BitDegree to solve the problem of the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) industry’s low 5 percent completion rate. Traditional education is broken and outdated, yet the Bitdegree platform reaches beyond borders and any traditional limitations to create an experience unlike any other.

The idea of BitDegree is the brainchild of Andrius Putna, a highly qualified software engineer with over a decade of industry experience. Prior to BitDegree, he has led several successful projects including 000webhost.com, the world’s first cloud-based web hosting platform for learners and starters.

The CEO and co-founder of BitDegree Foundation, Andrius Putna,  states that:

“BitDegree is proud of education now being shaped according to the needs of businesses and it will no longer take 4-6 years to complete a qualification for the real labor market. It is getting a lot of traction and there is no doubt that it will become a global hit.”

Putna continues:

“Tech-talent is among us, among our users, and it’s time to empower them to go after their dreams, empower them to learn. After many successful practices, we know that it will go globally.”

Normally, students spend tens of thousands of dollars on a degree. Coming out of university with such amounts of debt and no guarantee to find work, is devastating.

In fact, many institutions of higher learning, simply aren’t addressing the needs of employers, and students graduate lacking the essential skills needed to do the job efficiently.

The online learning model conceptualized in this platform, will grant access to the best online courses, curated by guest lecturers from the world changing companies, with a clear and transparent blockchain-based reward system and the benefit of achievement tracking in their own name.

BitDegree will create a new type of token in the Ethereum ecosystem. It will be exchangeable among different category users of the platform, such as the students, companies as sponsors, and various third parties.

BitDegree envisions a world where tech companies can provide scholarship incentives to students who want to invest time and effort into learning new skills.

Through this process, companies can introduce learners to new technology and fill learning gaps within their own workforces. BitDegree will stand out from present MOOCs due to blockchain advantages with smart incentives, gamification and decentralization.

Having a strong base of more than 29 million users, BitDegree has a precisely calculated roadmap advancing in 2018 Q4, when the platform aims to reach its full functionality.

The BitDegree team is currently working on the MVP and getting ready for upcoming ICO event that is scheduled to take place on 2017 Q4. Innovative learning model, passion-driven team and the successful ICO event will accelerate the potential of BitDegree’s platform and revolutionize education from the core.
