Bankera’s Co-Founders have Announced they have Fully Acquired the Pacific Private Bank Limited

Bitcoin Press Release – One of the biggest ICO sales to date, Bankera has announced that the goal of becoming a bank for the blockchain era and a one-stop store for all financial services will be delivered ahead of schedule

Thursday, 31st of January – Bankera’s co-founders have announced they have acquired the Pacific Private Bank Limited, with the two remaining as separate projects. The bank will improve its operational infrastructure by leveraging the blockchain technology on offer.

A Bank with History and Infrastructure

Pacific Private Bank  was founded in 1997 and has over 21 years of experience, specializing in asset and wealth management services for private clients. Hard work and a favorable geographical, economical, tax and legal environment built the core foundation of this successful enterprise.

Throughout the years, the Pacific Private Bank has developed an advanced IT infrastructure to support complex banking operations as well as a solid client base. The bank is also notable for its manpower, which represents some of the brightest minds in the banking and finance sector.

Pacific Private Bank and Bankera teams will focus on different goals: the bank will continue working with fiat-based banking solutions and Bankera will keep its focus on providing both crypto and fiat services around the globe. Current bank managers Mantas Staliūnas and Algirdas Purkėnas will continue to work as Managing Director and Treasurer, respectively, while Audrius Žiugžda and Martin St-Hilaire will continue as the bank’s Directors.

As members of Bankera’s advisory board, they will also share their expertise and insights with Bankera’s team. Žiugžda and St-Hilaire have been publicly acknowledged for their extensive knowledge and professional insights in the M&A sector, banking operations, also international experience in fields of auditing, accounting, banking, taxes, and risk management.

Bankera: A Building Block

Bankera is building a fully digital bank, without costly bricks and mortar branches which will eventually become a one-stop store for all financial services. As an operational fork of SpectroCoin, an all in one solution for cryptocurrencies, with over 740,000 clients and 5 years in cryptocurrency markets, Bankera are poised to innovate and provide a crucial stepping stone to worldwide adoption of the Crypto sphere.

Bankera’s team will empower the Pacific Private Bank with bank-level blockchain technology. In order to do so, one of the first steps to be done is to connect the Pacific Private Bank to the Ripple network. This move, which aims to facilitate cross-border transactions, has already attracted interest from leading global banks such as Santander, UniCredit, UBS and Standard Chartered. Also, blockchain-based identity management and KYC (Know Your Client) solutions will be implemented at the Pacific Private bank to improve client onboarding and make efforts toward a more secure, regulated market.

An ICO that Stands Out

On November 27th Bankera launched an ICO sale which has attracted over 65,000 contributors, making it the biggest ICO by contributor number so far. This is not the only record Bankera has under its belt – during its pre-ICO alone, Bankera collected over 25 million Euros, making it one of the biggest publicly open pre-ICOs in the world. Thus far, the company has already raised 80 million euros and is determined to meet the hard cap of 177 million euros.

Bankera’s ICO is taking place on the SpectroCoin platform where ICO contributors can choose from more than 20 payment methods when purchasing their BNK tokens. These include a variety of cryptocurrencies, such as ETH, BTC, DASH, XEM and others.

Blockchain-based Loyalty Ecosystem BitRewards has launched a Public Pre-sale of BIT on January 12th, 2018

Bitcoin Press Release: Bitrewards have announced details of their Loyalty Ecosystem and Platform, and offer information of their ongoing Token Sale.

30th January 2018, Singapore – BitRewards is a blockchain loyalty platform and ecosystem that enables retailers to reward the purchases their customers make with cryptocurrency. The end-users are rewarded for their purchases with liquid Ethereum-based tokens, which can be redeemed against future purchases or offers, or transferred to another crypto-wallet and spent on other products or services. The public pre-sale started on January 12st, 2018.

A Brand-new Look at Loyalty Management
The conversion optimization, referral, and loyalty solutions market is estimated to be worth a staggering $20 billion. On top of that, there is more than $50 billion worth of loyalty points that are issued globally every year. Despite the strong growth, the efficiency of this market leaves much to be desired: customer loyalty programs are not realizing their full potential. The main problems of loyalty management are:

– Account inactivity
– Low retention
– Low motivation by offered rewards

Those issues can be caused by different factors: poor user experience, inconvenience, and sophisticated registration process can prevent users from signing up for loyalty programs. Sophisticated rules of participation can also drive up the cost of customer service. Customer retention is another problem as it’s a commonly known fact that it’s cheaper to retain an old customer than to attract a new one. All the abovementioned problems can be easily solved with an integrated loyalty system.

Loyalty and Blockchain: Making a Difference
BitRewards is based on a successfully working product in the field of user rewards and loyalty (GIFTD) – for small and medium-sized e-commerce businesses. The team has been engaged in the product development for more than five years, knows the market and client needs well and has great expertise in motivational marketing solutions.

With BitRewards, the merchants can both issue their internal points or BIT tokens to reward their users on our system. They can choose to reward for any custom action (likes, shares, referred friends’ purchases) with the crypto. The platform provides all necessary infrastructure for a solid loyalty management system: modules or plug-ins for all popular online trading platforms (OpenCart, Shopify, Magento, etc.), mobile wallets for customers, mobile apps, and extensions for browsers.

BitRewards also includes BitRecommendations – a decentralized crowdsourced recommendation system tailored to the needs of e-commerce that uses blockchain to monitor the quality and integrity of Big Data. The system is AI-based as its training is carried out on the data of thousands of stores, which ensures the high quality of recommendations. All data received from stores is stored on a decentralized IPFS file system. Metadata, including the rating of data quality, is stored on the Ethereum blockchain.

BitRewards Token Generation Event
BitRewards token BIT is an ERC20-compatible utility token. BIT is an internal currency and is used to conduct all operations within the BitRewards ecosystem. BIT tokens allow for the payment of goods and services within partner merchants of the BitRewards system and can also be exchanged for ETH/USD at independent exchanges, or at the BitRewards liquidity contract.

The BitRewards team has scheduled several token distribution stages. The private pre-sale took place between December 25th, 2017 and January 11th, 2018. The public pre-sale started on January 12th, 2018 and will end on March 31st, 2018. The main token sale will start on April 1st and end on May 1st.

The total volume of BIT tokens will be up to 2,000,000,000 with a $3 million soft cap and $15 million hard cap. At the moment, the estimations show that the optimal amount of tokens should be around 1 billion BITs depending on the ETH price. 64% of the total supply will be made available for acquisition during the entire Token Sale.

Matchpool Enters the World of Crowdfunding with fund0x – Finally Giving Cryptocurrency Holders Something Real to Do With Their Funds

Bitcoin Press Release: Make way, Indiegogo, Kickstarter, and GoFundMe, for the first crowdfunding platform on crypto. fund0x — Matchpool’s latest social offering following their vision to provide real value and connectivity to the crypto community — connects creators and cryptocurrency holders beyond outsiders’ wildest dreams.

30th January 2018, Fund0x provides inventors with the perfect channel for announcing new products and projects and for raising the funds needed to bring their inventions to fruition. This initiative is truly groundbreaking in its fusion of crowdfunding with the cryptocurrency world.

Unlike their crowdfunding platform predecessors, Fund0x accepts only crypto currencies, enabling the crypto community to use their hard-earned cryptocurrency to buy real, super-innovative products.

Fund0x and Matchpool

Fund0x is a product by Matchpool, a blockchain startup focused on building social products that incentivize people to positively connect with each other within communities. They plan to add smart contracts to the crowdfunding platform, as well as additional in-app tools for direct communication between creators and potential funders. Join the Fund0x Telegram community to stay tuned.

A product like Fund0x couldn’t have entered the market at a better moment; the exploding crypto community is rather limited in terms of what it can actually do with its newly-acquired cryptocurrency. From now on, when inventors are ready to share their creation-concepts with the masses, they’ll use Fund0x because blockchain is the way of the future. The crypto community is ripe with purchasing power, so why not give them something to use their $coins for?

Two pioneering projects are already on the platform — Smatch Z, a wireless handheld gaming console, and Nommi, the first LTE hotspot for crypto enthusiasts. Watch as the crypto economy turns the conceptual into the actual. Fund0x. For the community, by the community.

Announcing Oxygen – The First Crypto Repo Trading Platform

Bitcoin Press Release: Oxygen has announced the launch of the world’s first decentralized repo trading platform.

London, 29th January, 2018 – Oxygen has announced the launch of the world’s first decentralized repo trading platform for the crypto economy. Repos (repurchase agreements) are a widely used tool across traditional asset classes. Oxygen will provide holders of crypto assets opportunities to earn income, raise liquidity and take directional investment views across a range of cryptocurrencies, coins and tokens.

Oxygen has been created by the founders of Changelly, a market leader in instant cryptocurrency exchange services with over 1.6 million users, and a team headed by CEO Alex Grebnev, an experienced financial markets professional who has held senior leadership roles at Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs.

A repo is an agreement to sell securities and repurchase them on a specified future date (“maturity”) at a pre-agreed price. Repos facilitate the funding of long positions, the borrowing of assets to cover shorts, collateral re-usage, efficient portfolio management and safe (collateralized) cash investment. Oxygen is targeting a broad range of crypto asset holders with a variety of economic goals:

  •      Token holders (including strategic investors and miners) seeking to post their assets as collateral to free up capital or earn income;
  •      Speculators and market-makers aiming to benefit from price volatility and to capture arbitrage opportunities;
  •      Early post-crowdsale entities with idle crypto assets, that could be lent against collateral, providing income generation;
  •      Tokenomy-powered / Tokenomy-anchored businesses demanding liquidity and liquidity management tools to deploy liquidity surpluses, or to cover liquidity gaps;
  •      Crypto investment funds seeking interest income through the lending of their portfolio assets (while retaining exposure);
  •      Crypto exchanges looking to provide more trading options to their clients.

In а CryptoRepo transaction one party borrows crypto assets from another party and commits to return these assets with interest at a future date. The Borrower provides crypto assets to the Lender as collateral, creating a secured digital transaction using an Ethereum-based Smart Contract. Oxygen will utilize decentralized exchange technology to bring crypto investors and traders the full benefits of repo.

The Ethereum-based Smart Contract at the heart of Oxygen is based on GMRA, a tried and tested legal framework that supports the $12 trillion global market in repo.

Oxygen’s smart contract does not rely on a third-party at any stage and its conditions cannot be changed without the mutual agreement of the two parties. All user private keys are held by client-side applications, and the Oxygen platform does not have access to user assets.

The smart contract acts as a custodian, clearing and settlement system, and forms the core of transaction processing. Once a repo trade has been matched, Oxygen records the transaction in the smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain network. From that point on, users interact with the smart contract directly using its fixed Ethereum address. The Borrower and Lender settle collateral and loan assets by transferring them to the smart contract address. The smart contract locks the collateral, sends the loan asset to the Borrower’s Ethereum address and tracks all ongoing transactions.

Oxygen comprises a comprehensive range of peer-to-peer exchange features, including an AI-based risk management toolkit, community-driven order book, an order processing engine, a user-rating system based on repayment history, and an API for B2B integration. Client-side applications include a set of web-interfaces and support all major extensions such as Parity UI, Metamask and MyEtherWallet.

The platform will support ether and all ERC20-compliant tokens, with a combined market capitalization greater than $120 billion. Once a robust cross-chain solution appears on the market, it will be integrated into the platform, making Bitcoin, Litecoin and other blockchain-based cryptocurrencies available as well.

Oxygen aims to serve both B2C and B2B markets. It will offer repo to the existing 1.6 million client base of Changelly and then integrate the platform into financial market infrastructure to win broad acceptance among potential B2B repo users.

Oxygen is applying to be regulated under the new Distributed Ledger Technology regime in Gibraltar and aims to register as an Alternative Trading System (ATS) in the US. The Oxygen crypto repo marketplace will be powered by OXG, a multi-purpose utility token, which will be used as an internal currency to cover platform commission fees and as a tradable asset within the platform.

A Hybrid-Decentralised Marketplace And Content Sharing Platform Poised To Disrupt The Virtual Reality Industry

Bitcoin Press Release: ImmVRse offers a platform for brands looking to branch out into the new and compelling world of VR, allowing them to hire content creators in a quick, easy and convenient manner.

January 29, London, England – Virtual reality (VR) has established itself as a technology that will play a momentous part in our lives within the next decade. Forecasts by Goldman Sachs indicate that VR revenue has the capability to reach in the region of $110 billion by 2025. We are already witnessing the technology being implemented into the medical, gaming, manufacturing and educational sectors where substantial investments have been made in both hardware and software.

With regards to the entertainment industry, VR has the potential to dramatically enrich the cinematic experience for audiences everywhere. They are thrust into the midst of the action, thereby existing outside of their own personal realities, for example, VR enables viewers to “live” a story from the perspective of a character within a film instead of simply observing as a spectator.

VR content creation has unlimited potential and will undoubtedly continue to innovate and push the boundaries of our imaginations, connecting to audiences on a deeper level than any previous medium. As the demand for specific and high-quality VR content increases, ImmVRse steps in as a platform that aims to sustain and accelerate the growth of VR content development across multiple industries.

ImmVRse is a decentralised VR content sharing platform that will allow VR content creators, brands and advertisers around the world to inspire, collaborate, and produce some of the highest-quality VR content available online. The application will act as both a marketplace and a content distribution platform. ImmVRse will employ its own unique digital currency, the ImmVRse token (IMV), which will be used as the form of payment between all parties within the ecosystem.

Though there are currently multiple platforms that support VR, they are generally dominated by 180/2D content creators, which does little to encourage and stimulate the growth of VR content. ImmVRse hopes to provide an environment where VR content creators can effectively showcase their content online with a more dedicated platform, leading to direct employment opportunities, regardless of geographical restrictions.

All transactions within the ImmVRse ecosystem will be validated and encrypted using Ethereum’s smart contract function, which in turn will eliminate the need of an arbitrary third party or financial controllers. Brands that wish to hire content creators may pay for their services using the token, while advertisers will also be able to run their own advertisements within the platform.

Control and the power of sharing will be shifted towards the community, thereby removing centralised decision-making and any third party from the workflow. The job creation and hiring process will also be peer-to-peer, using the smart contracts function; the brands and the content creators will both set their own parameters. The contract will then be deployed on the blockchain and payments will be processed based on mutually agreed deadlines between parties.

The biggest problem that ImmVRse will remedy as a blockchain platform is payment. There will be no high transaction fees, no requirements for bank accounts or any restrictions for users. Using ImmVRse tokens, it will take mere seconds to send and receive payments anywhere around the world without paying a processing fee to a bank or any third party money transfers. This will open the door to many content creators in countries where citizens may be under certain geographical and administrative restrictions imposed by local legislative authority.

The ImmVRse team consists of highly talented and knowledgeable members possessing an average of more than 15 years of hands on industry experience. Team members and advisors are experienced in managing large-scale multi-million dollar projects and skilled in marketing, infrastructure development, process specialisation, human resources and blockchain disciplines. The team’s ability to develop complex projects, paired with their expertise in crypto-trading and investing, builds a solid foundation for a successful blockchain start-up.

By combining two up-and-coming technologies, the potential in VR and blockchain, ImmVRse hopes to combine the best of both worlds and create one of the largest decentralised creative platforms that is run both efficiently and effectively. A platform where both technologies are able to flourish side-by-side, resulting in a product that will revolutionize VR content as we know it.

PayPro – How the Banks of the Future will look alike Thanks to Bitcoin

Bitcoin Press Release: PayPro is re-shaping the crypto-bank arena with a new approach inspired in full decentralization. PayPro is currently launching an ICO.

Gibraltar, January 28th, 2018 – When Satoshi Nakamoto released his white paper, “Bitcoin: A peer-to-peer Electronic Cash System” back in year 2009, he offered Bitcoin as an alternative to the current centralized payment system. This alternative relied on using cryptographic proof instead of trust on a centralized party.

Back then, modern history was witnessing the world’s worst financial recession ever coming from the banking industry. Thus, Bitcoin arouse as an alternative to an innovative community who felt the need to store their value in a new way. The Main problem was that Bitcoin remained as a payment system for long, so any form of financial instrument was not available for a Bitcoin-only user.

Thanks to the release of Ethereum, a platform for building decentralized applications on Blockchain with Smart Contracts, new financial applications started to be created. Soon after that, a series of so called crypto-banks emerged thanks to Ethereum technology. Problem is, that those crypto-banks have only used Ethereum’s Blockchain to develop their technology but not their product; for instance, when banks where selling toxic assets to their clients, clients had no other option but to buy as banks were advising to do so. This was possible due to the fact that centralization facilitates the system to be corrupted when one of the two parties in a relationship controls the information.

Using blockchain as a technology for running back-end procedures does not prevent this from happen again. Therefore, it can not be said that current crypto-banks are an alternative to traditional banking as Bitcoin was to payment networks. PayPro is re-imagining how banking could look like thanks to Satoshi’s view on decentralization. In order to do so, PayPro believes that the portfolio of financial services offered to a client can not be centralized in any way, otherwise there is no guarantee for the user that a bank will only look after their interests.

PayPro will not offer any financial service. Instead of that, PayPro will open the doors of its market place so any financial Decentralized-Application (dApp) can offer its services. PayPro will not have any right to decide what dApp should be in and which one should be out. This is why PayPro has built an amazing decentralized rating system that allows the community to rate dApps. By doing this, it will let the community to manage the marketplace by itself.

If PayPro accomplishes this, the next time you look for an insurance or a credit, for instance, you could find 100+ companies offering the service that you are looking for. Thus, PayPro will make financial suppliers to struggle on improving their services so they can finally become the one you choose. At the end, PayPro is creating an eco-system where competition is promoted, which results in better quality services for the user. Exactly the opposite of what currently happens with any form of bank, either traditional banks or decentralized banks (also called neo-banks and / or crypto-banks).

PayPro is currently launching an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) for issuing its own token with a 10% bonus for early contributors. PayPro’s TGE started on the 22nd of January 2018 and will end on the 28th of January 2018. Minimum contribution is 0.5 ETH which equates to 1,100 PIP.

Decentralized Video Sharing Platform Viuly Offers Video Makers Unrestricted Earnings

Bitcoin Press Release: A recent development with a major video sharing corporation has slashed revenue sharing with content producers, leaving small video makers out in the cold. This reiterates the urgent need for an open and fair environment for content producers, which decentralized video platform Viuly aims to provide.

January 25, 2017, Tallinn, Estonia – Video content producers, particularly independent ones with modest online followings, have taken to social media to vent their disappointment with recent announcements from a major video hosting platform that will see thousands of small video producers dropped from revenue programs. The strict decision was apparently made to comply with advertiser guidelines, prompted by repeated scandals of offensive content appearing on the major platform.

The change in protocol has raised entry requirements for participants, effectively demonetizing a significant portion of video content. This will involve a high minimum number of subscribers as well as a minimum number of views imposed, essentially marooning entire communities of independent video makers and rising stars who will not make the cut.

How will Viulys decentralized ecosystem benefit all video creators?

With the elimination of middlemen and their exorbitant commissions, revenue generated on the Viuly platform (currently in Alpha) is distributed in a fair and equitable manner, with content producers earning and viewers rewarded, with percentages far higher than that given by the current industry monopolies.

Video makers of all budgets and means will collectively share equal benefits on the Viuly ecosystem, earning revenue in the form of VIU tokens from the very first view on any video they upload, as there are no restrictive entry requirements.

VIU tokens are the native currency of the Viuly platform. They can be used by advertisers to purchase advertising packages, earned as rewards for viewing videos and earned by video makers for generating views on their videos.

As centralization restricts, Viuly liberates

Viuly’s aim to revolutionize the video sharing industry is founded on the belief that video content should be free for all through an open system of distributed content, without restrictions and limitations to access, imposed by centralized intermediaries.

As participation in revenue programs on centralized platforms get stricter with pre-approval, and still vulnerable to the inclusion of “offensive content”, Viuly moderates it’s content through an entirely decentralized system. The platform will ensure that pre-approved content is rated and passed or marked for violation by peer-appointed moderators adhering to a common standard of community ethics.

All users will be able to access any content without worrying about geographical restrictions or access limitations commonly found on major video hosting platforms.

About Viuly

Viuly’s mission is to disrupt the multi-billion dollar industry of online video-sharing with its blockchain-based solution. Through decentralization and transparency, it aims to create a fair and open video network operating on an equitable model of revenue sharing.

Fintech and Blockchain Mavens Launch International Digital Asset Exchange Council (“ IDAXC ”) to Accelerate the Mainstreaming of Rapidly Emerging “Real-Asset” Crypto Sector

Bitcoin Press Release: 2018 Davos conclave marked the official launch of IDAXC, the international Council charged with overseeing the emergent field of marrying and optimizing cryptocurrencies to quantifiable assets.

26 January 2018, Davos, Switzerland – The launch of IDAXC at “Blockchain Central” — a Blockchain-themed hub established in Davos by the Global Blockchain Business Council, GBBC.org — signalled a clear point of demarcation between the emerging ‘asset-backed’ crypto currency market (“Blockchain 3.0”) and the older, un-anchored, non-asset-backed cryptocurrencies. Constituted as a not-for-profit, IDAXC is mandated to promote industry adoption; asset-tokenisation standards; and best regulatory practise in both asset-digitization, and asset-exchange, globally.

The founders believe that 2018 marks the beginning of an important maturation phase in the heady and often volatile cryptocurrency markets. If successful, IDAXC will empower the owners of any kind of real asset to rapidly ‘tokenise,’ and subsequently hypothecate or trade that asset — while complying with all regional regulations, including KYC and AML standards.

IDAXC’s founding Chair is well-known UK Fintech figure Eric Van der Kleij, creator of London’s Level39 Fintech hub and previously CEO of the U.K. government’s Tech City initiative. Eric was also one of the initiators behind the creation of the U.K. Fintech trade body Innovate Finance, so he is no stranger to both supporting Fintech innovation and feeding into policy.  His company, Centre for Digital Revolution (C4DR.com), is active in Fintech and Blockchain projects in the U.K. and Switzerland; and will become a founding member of IDAXC, alongside a number of interested parties, such as China’s ACChain, and Hong Kong based Courage Investment Group Ltd. (HK1145) and Ink Blockchain Co. Ltd.

Also joining the council board as Head of Policy is David White, former Director of Innovation at RBS, and founder of Fintech companies import.io and Kusiri (now sold to PwC.)

Eric Van der Kleij observed:

“Today we are sharing the aims and ambitions of IDAXC, and also seeking feedback from a small group of interested parties representing startups, banks, academia, and some of the most experienced people active in the emerging field of Real-Asset Digitization. The growth of ordinary crypto currencies is admittedly huge, with a combined market cap of $500Bn (Coinmarketcap) in an industry that simply wasn’t there just a few years ago. However, when you take the power of cryptocurrencies built on the decentralised Blockchain, and underpin them with trusted Real Asset Digitization delivered via shared standards set by a worldwide community of members, the potential is just so much larger. We believe this final stage of the Blockchain revolution — coins anchored by real assets — will finally trigger established financial services players and regulators to support and even participate in the cryptocurrency markets.”

Users Can Now Trade PlusCoin on Crypto Exchanges

Bitcoin Press Release: Cryptocurrency users can now exchange their digital coins for PlusCoin as it begins to get listed on a number of exchanges online. PlusCoin coins (PLC) have been distributed among the first token holders and are now making their way to the stock exchange.

23rd January 2018, Tallinn, Estonia – Etherdelta now lists PLC for trading while other exchanges like Bitsane/Anybits, IDEX, Mercatox, and Yobit will follow suit. The DS PLUS team said more exchanges will be added to the list wherein users can trade PLCs.

With plans of joining larger and more exchanges, the DS PLUS team also sees it fit to drive more interest toward the coin and present PLC as a tool to enjoy cashback rewards given away by the PlusCoin platform.

DS PLUS Burns Unsold PLC

DS PLUS announced that it would burn all unsold PLC tokens from the ICO on January 15, 2018. This would decrease the supply of the coin but would give its price and market value a boost. Fewer PLC coins on the market would yield higher interest from the cryptocommunity

.“When discussing the process of burning the unsold during the ICO PLC tokens, we concluded that the total number of tokens, including those that were allocated to the infrastructure and the reserve, should be reduced to properly distribute and increase the value of the coin,” said Mikhail Mikhailov, CEO of DS PLUS (PlusCoin).

The team stated that PLC coins will be distributed in this manner:

  • Distributed during the ICO is 5,172,323,624
  • Infrastructure of DS PLUS (PlusCoin) is 13,200,000,000.00
  • Stabilization fund of 9,900,000,000.00
  • This leaves the market with 28,272,323,624 PLC that users can begin trading on the listed online exchanges.
