31 Things You Should Know about Doing an ICO

Going through an ICO is not like going through an IPO. It’s not like a traditional fundraising round either.

This article, by Jason Goldberg, called Insider Reflections on the ICO Bubble, Part II: What it takes to ICO is probably the best I have read in the last year.

He blows out of the water the misconception that “ICOs are easy.”

Doing it right is far from easy.

He lists 31 different things he learned that are all valuable.

I thought there were a few key points worth highlighting.

  • focus on community…over 100,000 Telegram responses and the near 100% conversion rate between engagement and purchase of token
  • the lengths to which they went for token key management
  • the KPI of “speed of KYC request processing”
  • the efforts required to ward off scammers

We’re watching the birth of an entirely new fundraising model that will be around for a long, long time, I believe.

If you have not done an ICO, that is fine.

However, not doing what you can to educate yourself and manage your expectations about what is involved in an ICO is just irresponsible–if you plan on being in the crypto world for any length of time.

The post 31 Things You Should Know about Doing an ICO appeared first on Never Stop Marketing.

BankEx — профессионалы в работе

Крипто-экономика выходит на новые рубежи, и уже сейчас внедряются технологии, которые станут основополагающими в оцифровке реальных активов. Команда профессионалов во главе с Игорем Хмелем в 2016 году основала проект BankEx, целью которого является оцифровка активов для придания им ликвидности.

Главное достоинство этого финтеха в том, что для каждого процесса создается смарт-контракт на базе блокчейн. Приобретатель может быть совершенно уверен в том, что купил то, о чем заявлено, поскольку специалистами BankEx разработаны технологии и протоколы достоверности активов. Токены данного проекта реализуются на платформах Waves и Ethereum, что само по себе тоже является гарантом прибыльности и надежности.

Кто же создатели

Кроме Сергея Хмеля, который известен успешным проектами как финтехлаб «Сбербанка» и других стартапов, которые он заложил еще в Калифорнии, проектом занимаются:

· Константин Курбатов — Chief Strategy Officer. По образованию — специалист по информационным технологиям, а также математике и финансам. 6 лет занимает должность CFO в APE corp, занимается стратегическим консультированием в CARANA corp. Со-основатель многих стартапов в области венчурного бизнеса.

· Пег Рид — генеральный исполнительный директор «Форекс Девелопмент Корпорейшн».

· Габриэль Колумбро — исполнительный директор в Symphony Software Foundation. Более 14 лет работает в области открытого программного обеспечения, основатель проекта Maven Alfresco SDK.

Эти и многие другие эксперты с весомым именем в сфере разработок финтеха являются сотрудниками BankEx, и это уже привлекло немало инвестиций.

ICO

ICO началось 28 ноября в Нью-Йорке. К продаже предложено 150 млн токенов. В 2018 году планируется агрегация необходимых документов, открытие отделения в Швейцарии, всемирная конференция по вопросам Блокчейна в Лас-Вегасе, а также состоится первая продажа смарт-активов и реализация Plasma Light.

Jincor

What is Jincor ?

Jincor is a platform which will allow any business to work with smart contracts and cryptocurrency payments easily with no legal, technical, or operational complications and in a cost-efficient manner. While existing solutions offer to solve just one problem at a time, our team build up a useful, secure and easy-to-use product, which will include smart contracts constructor, cryptocurrency payments, and even a digital arbitration system to work out the right judgements on unclear matters related to smart contracts performance.

In the end, Jincor aims to integrate all companies, employees and business assets into a unified blockchain ecosystem, which will make business relations truly transparent, effective and reliable.

Ecosystem

Jincor ecosystem is a combination of decentralized ( dApp ) and classic web applications that let anyone create organizations and manage them on private blockchain based on Hyperledger technologies without any technical insight. Jincor provides all the functionality that one might need while doing business, including instruments for effective management companies and employees, bills in cryptocurrency, crypto payments, and smart-contracts templates. On top of that, third-party corporate applications can be connected to the Jincor ecosystem in “ single-screen mode ”. More info about technical details you can find in our Yellowpaper. Thus, here we will try to extremely simple describe the mechanisms of work our applications and modules.

How it works ?

The contract takes force as soon as both parties sign it with e-signatures and requires specific elements in order to be executed automatically. For instance, a first-order requirement is the presence of cryptocurrency accounts of those involved. In other words, the executable code should have unhindered access to the smart contracts objects. Besides that, all of the smart contract conditions should be described mathematically and have a clear execution logic, and this is the reason why the first smart contracts in Jincor will be based on the simplest corporate relations, which involve just a few elements. Given that the code has the full access to the objects of an agreement, its execution and compliance will be handled automatically with account for the fulfillment of the smart contract conditions.

Tokens

In order to further the development of the platform, reach breakeven and get to the global market as soon as possible we are going to raise extra funding by running an ICO campaign.

JCR tokens are developed on Ethereum blockchain and conform to the ERC20 Token Standard.

Jincor will issue 35 000 000 JCR tokens, most of which will be put on sale. The base cost of tokens will depend on the popularity of the platform Registering at Jincor.com and evaluating the advantages of Jincor’s ecosystem is free of charge for any business. However, if companies want to use digital verification, smart contracts and crypto payments they will be charged in JCR tokens. Growing demand for JCR tokens from Jincor’s corporate users combined with a fixed total token supply (35 000 000 JCR, no further emissions.) will ensure a stable, long-term growth of a JCR token price. Prices of Jincor services will be expressed in JCR tokens and calculated dynamically based on current token conversion rates, so that users will be charged with a fixed fiat value that is unaffected by JCR price fluctuations.

Jincor’s Target Market and Implementation

Platforms like Jincor definitely have a viable market to tend to.

Whilst most other platforms and ecosystems focus on the implementation of crypto currencies to individuals, the system concentrates on allowing corporations to implement the system and coincide with already created crypto currency wallets.

Descentralización de Procesos

Si bien es cierto que el capitalismo es el modelo económico más exitoso en la historia de la humanidad, habiendo permitido la extracción de cientos de millones de personas de la pobreza, garantizando con ello mejoras sin precedentes en la calidad de vida y gestionando desarrollos económicos sin parangón, también es el mismo capitalismo quien ha permitido el encarecimiento de muchos procesos debido a la aparición de intermediarios. Estos, aprovechando en la mayoría de ocasiones fallas de mercado, han creado modelos de negocio que les han permitido ser indispensables en muchas de las cadenas de valor operativas a nivel mundial.

Estas fallas de mercado pueden tomar diferentes formas. En muchos casos se deben a falta de confianza entre partes, problemas de optimización sectorial, bajas rentabilidades para determinado actor que pueden ser optimizadas por otro, etc. De esta forma el coste de los productos crece a nivel mundial y son trasladados al consumidor final. Es decir, pagamos justos por pecadores en un mundo regido por las ineficiencias industriales, gubernamentales y administrativas.

Hasta el día de hoy, la mayoría de estos modelos de negocio se convertían en sistemas centralizados, pues está, resultaba ser la primera opción para desarrollar y abordar situaciones de alta complejidad (muchas veces es la única que conoce el empresario convencional) debido a que la centralización inicialmente brinda cierto orden y un aparente menor coste que la descentralización, pues al existir un control central permite reducir duplicidades y hasta cierto punto aumentar la velocidad en la toma de decisiones . Sin embargo, si el costo de la descentralización baja (gracias a la evolución tecnológica y económica), y el costo de la centralización sube (mantenimiento de un sistema centralizado así como el riesgo de corrupción o la inflación en los modelos financieros ), migrar a un modelo descentralizado se vuelve una evolución clara.

Actualmente podemos asegurar que está figura de intermediación y sistemas centralizados tiene sus días contados. Con Blockchain se puede garantizar la seguridad y confianza entre las partes que interactúan en una cadena de valor (por ejemplo uno de los costes más elevados en las cadenas de abastecimiento global es el de la desconfianza entre las partes, lo que incrementa hasta en un 30% los costes de las mercancías), ahorrando tiempo y energía, aportando transparencia, a la vez que se optimizan procesos de tal manera que los costes de las manufacturas y el trasiego se reducen en gran medida. Esto permite trasladar los beneficios al usuario o consumidor del producto generado o transportado, y todas las partes involucradas, lo que deriva en muchos casos en un aumento en la calidad de vida.

Si ademas de utilizar Blockchain, agregamos a este modelo un token (permitiendo, dicho sea de paso, la tokenización del proceso) podremos generar un sistema de incentivos a través de teoría de juegos que nos permita influir en los componentes de la cadena de valor. Podríamos también buscar las conductas más beneficiosas para la red (primando los beneficios grupales antes de los personales, para ello se deben establecer una serie de incentivos para premiar este tipo de conductas) obteniendo con ello un equilibrio y una maximización de beneficios.

Si se desarrolla un sistema de incentivos o modelo criptoeconómico eficiente, que sea sostenible y sustentable en el tiempo, es muy posible que logremos la gestión autónoma de la cadena de valor, sin interferencia de entes centrales que influyan en los comportamientos de los players (habremos entonces crackeado el modelo económico-administrativo actual). Además, de la mano con la eficiencia del modelo cripto vendrá la defensa de la red por parte de los mismos participantes de posibles ataques, tanto externos como internos, que busquen corromper o desestabilizar su funcionamiento.

Desafíos y Problemáticas

Desde el punto de vista ideológico: algo maravilloso. Desde el punto de vista racional: quizá algo descabellado. Lo cierto es que en el estado actual de la sociedad encontramos muchas dificultades para poder llevar a cabo este tipo de procedimientos. Estas dificultades vienen de diversos sectores que en la mayoría de los casos gobiernan las industrias y los modelos económicos tal como los conocemos. Estos sectores buscarán luchar siempre por permanecer vigentes, a pesar de que su modelo de negocio este en la obsolescencia. Lo anterior puede ahogar la innovación y la aparición de modelos disruptivos mediante presiones que pueden tomar las formas menos esperadas.

Desde mi punto de vista, estas problemáticas pueden agruparse en tres lineas principales :

  1. Políticas: La mayoría de industrias ejercen fuerzas sobre los entes gubernamentales, permitiendo el tráfico de influencias con el fin último de allanar el camino o extender los beneficios a determinado sector, sea manufactura, procesos, transporte, etc. Es bien sabido que quien intente romper el status quo corre el riesgo de enfrentarse a los gobiernos, las regulaciones y los intereses de muchos intermediarios.
  2. Administrativas: Las gestiones administrativas se vuelven un tanto más controlables en sistemas centralizados que cuando se trabaja en una comunidad abierta donde las ideas abundan y donde el valor es creado por todos-para todos.
  3. Educacionales: Sistemas educativos y de enseñanza que incentivan la verticalidad y la centralización de procesos tanto económicos como sociales, generando sesgos cognitivos en el imaginario social.

Recomendaciones Para Descentralizar o Tokenizar un Proceso

Todo proceso tiene una estructura tanto económica como social, es decir, su existencia se debe a que ha sido social y económicamente aceptado. Esto conlleva a que su transformación no pueda darse de golpe, pues acarrearía externalidades que pondrían en riesgo el éxito de la iniciativa transformadora. Por ende, todo cambio debe realizarse de manera paulatina, tomando en cuenta los intereses de los jugadores o entidades afectadas y establecer una estrategia de transformación que toque a cada uno en el momento adecuado.

Para llevar a cabo lo anterior, sugiero que se deben considerar los siguientes aspectos:

  1. Conocer a fondo el proceso: Porqué, cómo, cuándo, quién, a quienes.
  2. Comprender a fondo las conductas, motivaciones y roles que cumplen todos los individuos o entidades que componen o forman parte del proceso.
  3. Entender las fuerzas que interactúan en dicho proceso y cómo puede afectar sus interrupciones.
  4. Estudiar a fondo las externalidades derivadas del proceso en sí. En este caso es sumamente importante tanto las actuales como las que surgirían con el nuevo modelo.
  5. Comprender las variables socio-económicas que intervienen.
  6. Cuáles son las conductas esperadas o deseadas para el funcionamiento del nuevo modelo.

Una vez mapeados los aspectos anteriores, se debe analizar los pros y contras con que cuenta el proceso actual y qué valor agregaría (tanto económico como social) el nuevo modelo o proceso a implementar. De esta forma, tendremos una idea profunda de cuál es la problemática y cuál será nuestra solución. También podremos medir, o al menos deducir, el grado de aceptación que tendrá la idea, lo que resulta inversamente proporcional al grado de éxito en la tokenización o descentralización del proceso.

El paso final sería tomar la información y emular (hasta el cansancio y un poco más) el nuevo modelo, con el fin de obtener un modelo criptoeconómico y de incentivos que permita a la red o el proceso funcionar de manera autónoma o con la mínima interferencia humana, garantizando su integridad y seguridad en el tiempo.

No es un proceso simple pues requiere de bastante estudio y en muchos casos emulaciones tediosas. No obstante, vale la pena restituir algunos valores que se han perdido, empoderando a algunos elementos que han sido relegados a un segundo plano con el paso del tiempo, generando sociedades más equitativas con una mejor distribución de las decisiones.

La oportunidad esta en la mesa, queda en manos de la sociedad hacerla valer.

Si ademas de utilizar Blockchain, agregamos a este modelo un token (permitiendo, dicho sea de paso, la tokenización del proceso) podremos generar un sistema de incentivos a través de teoría de juegos que nos permita influir en los componentes de la cadena de valor. Podríamos también buscar las conductas más beneficiosas para la red (primando los beneficios grupales antes de los personales, para ello se deben establecer una serie de incentivos para premiar este tipo de conductas) obteniendo con ello un equilibrio y una maximización de beneficios.

Si se desarrolla un sistema de incentivos o modelo criptoeconómico eficiente, que sea sostenible y sustentable en el tiempo, es muy posible que logremos la gestión autónoma de la cadena de valor, sin interferencia de entes centrales que influyan en los comportamientos de los players (habremos entonces crackeado el modelo económico-administrativo actual). Además, de la mano con la eficiencia del modelo cripto vendrá la defensa de la red por parte de los mismos participantes de posibles ataques, tanto externos como internos, que busquen corromper o desestabilizar su funcionamiento.

Desafíos y Problemáticas

Desde el punto de vista ideológico: algo maravilloso. Desde el punto de vista racional: quizá algo descabellado. Lo cierto es que en el estado actual de la sociedad encontramos muchas dificultades para poder llevar a cabo este tipo de procedimientos. Estas dificultades vienen de diversos sectores que en la mayoría de los casos gobiernan las industrias y los modelos económicos tal como los conocemos. Estos sectores buscarán luchar siempre por permanecer vigentes, a pesar de que su modelo de negocio este en la obsolescencia. Lo anterior puede ahogar la innovación y la aparición de modelos disruptivos mediante presiones que pueden tomar las formas menos esperadas.

Desde mi punto de vista, estas problemáticas pueden agruparse en tres lineas principales :

  1. Políticas: La mayoría de industrias ejercen fuerzas sobre los entes gubernamentales, permitiendo el tráfico de influencias con el fin último de allanar el camino o extender los beneficios a determinado sector, sea manufactura, procesos, transporte, etc. Es bien sabido que quien intente romper el status quo corre el riesgo de enfrentarse a los gobiernos, las regulaciones y los intereses de muchos intermediarios.
  2. Administrativas: Las gestiones administrativas se vuelven un tanto más controlables en sistemas centralizados que cuando se trabaja en una comunidad abierta donde las ideas abundan y donde el valor es creado por todos-para todos.
  3. Educacionales: Sistemas educativos y de enseñanza que incentivan la verticalidad y la centralización de procesos tanto económicos como sociales, generando sesgos cognitivos en el imaginario social.

Recomendaciones Para Descentralizar o Tokenizar un Proceso

Todo proceso tiene una estructura tanto económica como social, es decir, su existencia se debe a que ha sido social y económicamente aceptado. Esto conlleva a que su transformación no pueda darse de golpe, pues acarrearía externalidades que pondrían en riesgo el éxito de la iniciativa transformadora. Por ende, todo cambio debe realizarse de manera paulatina, tomando en cuenta los intereses de los jugadores o entidades afectadas y establecer una estrategia de transformación que toque a cada uno en el momento adecuado.

Para llevar a cabo lo anterior, sugiero que se deben considerar los siguientes aspectos:

  1. Conocer a fondo el proceso: Porqué, cómo, cuándo, quién, a quienes.
  2. Comprender a fondo las conductas, motivaciones y roles que cumplen todos los individuos o entidades que componen o forman parte del proceso.
  3. Entender las fuerzas que interactúan en dicho proceso y cómo puede afectar sus interrupciones.
  4. Estudiar a fondo las externalidades derivadas del proceso en sí. En este caso es sumamente importante tanto las actuales como las que surgirían con el nuevo modelo.
  5. Comprender las variables socio-económicas que intervienen.
  6. Cuáles son las conductas esperadas o deseadas para el funcionamiento del nuevo modelo.

Una vez mapeados los aspectos anteriores, se debe analizar los pros y contras con que cuenta el proceso actual y qué valor agregaría (tanto económico como social) el nuevo modelo o proceso a implementar. De esta forma, tendremos una idea profunda de cuál es la problemática y cuál será nuestra solución. También podremos medir, o al menos deducir, el grado de aceptación que tendrá la idea, lo que resulta inversamente proporcional al grado de éxito en la tokenización o descentralización del proceso.

El paso final sería tomar la información y emular (hasta el cansancio y un poco más) el nuevo modelo, con el fin de obtener un modelo criptoeconómico y de incentivos que permita a la red o el proceso funcionar de manera autónoma o con la mínima interferencia humana, garantizando su integridad y seguridad en el tiempo.

No es un proceso simple pues requiere de bastante estudio y en muchos casos emulaciones tediosas. No obstante, vale la pena restituir algunos valores que se han perdido, empoderando a algunos elementos que han sido relegados a un segundo plano con el paso del tiempo, generando sociedades más equitativas con una mejor distribución de las decisiones.

La oportunidad esta en la mesa, queda en manos de la sociedad hacerla valer.

ICO for dummies

What is an ICO? Many has asked (and, quite conveniently, answered) this question in gigabytes of articles. But even those articles had passages that required articles (or asterisks) of their own.

There are many people, who are interested in investing, however they are far from the budding cryptocurrency market if not conventional stock market.

Many potential investors still bear scars of various Ponzi schemes: Rothstein, Payne, Pearlman — these guys had made piggy bank our go-to investment center year after year. These people (investors, not schemers, duh!) need a healthy dose of information before they feel safe to invest again.

One needs to give them a bit of cryptocurrency background.

I will read you a sermon on ICO ELI5.

This article is primarily targeted at the people who have some spare money, would like to put it somewhere, but don’t want to approach banks. At the same time everybody wants to be “in”, as only squares invest in stock market.

The current New Frontier is cryptocurrencies (bitcoin and altcoins), ICOs and ITOs. Last two terms are really close in their meaning and are both linked to blockchain. Of course blockchain is unthinkable without Internet, but, I guess, if you are reading this article you know how to get online!

Well, in the beginning there was blockchain.

The significance of its invention analysts compare with the significance of the invention of Internet itself. Blockchain is literally a chain of blocks (crickey!).

The chain basically worths ten times its weight in gold. If you put a pre SegWit Bitcoin on a floppy disk that is… I dunno why you would, but someone actually did it (one dude lost his HDD with bitcoins for real)!

This information chain, or rather its blocks, is scattered across decentralized PCs all around the world. It handles transactions in cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency is electronic money. “Crypto” means that they are heavily encrypted. Therefore, it is nigh impossible to forge or otherwise corrupt it for a regular user as well as a team of master hackers.

Cryptocurrency is not issued by any state or private bank. Cryptocurrency’s story began in 2008 with Bitcoin. Actually first blockchain was described in the early 1990s and became the basis for Bitcoin as the first (and the most valuable) cryptocurrency.

One could describe block chains as a digital ledger — kept by all parties — in the pristine condition. It cannot be edited, changed or redacted by anyone as it is constantly verified by all other parts of the network. This organization of data storage makes the system nigh impossible to crack (it does not protect the person with wallet from some bruisers taking a crack at him IRL though).

Apart from Bitcoin there are more than 1,000 types of cryptocurrencies, however Bitcoin takes the lion share of market followed by smaller guys like Ethereum or Ripple.

Every day the market is redistributing the market shares between well-established cryptocurrencies and the newcomers. There is a chance of some new cryptocurrencies skyrocketing to the top of the coin chain, albeit a slight one.

The main advantages of cryptocurrencies:

  • Anonymity of the transaction’s participants is protected — only the wallet address is known,
  • Transaction takes seconds or minutes to transfer (depends on the miners / participants ratio or condition of the network),
  • Transfer fee is approximately 0.01%.
  • Decentralized network works without the middlemen, i.e. supported by participants themselves,
  • Cryptocurrencies show significant growth over fiat currencies.

However some pillars of our society (the banking system, the stock market, the state itself) are rather jealous and frown on anonymity, decentralization and high investment attractiveness as it is a rather tempting piece of investment versus the ones, provided by the state. So, it is high time to get some tokens…
Token meant “sign” in Old English. In the world of E-currency it serves as a proof of transaction of money to some project.

That is, the process of issuing shares, entering exchanges, distribution of shares among investors and even investing the money into the project has been considerably sped up and improved by the blockchain technology.

Also it has decreased or eliminated the significance of middlemen like stock exchanges and brokerage firms. Basically token is the equivalent of share, but unlike shareholders token holders do not become co-owners of the company.

As the term “coin” was traditionally used in the field of cryptocurrency the launch of a new coin has been called ICO (Initial Coin Offering) — similar to IPO (Initial Public Offering). There is also a separate concept of ITO (Initial Token Offering), as the tokens can act not only as virtual money, but also have other functions like provision of access to different platforms and services. But in practice, ICO and ITO are interchangeable, and if you so desire to specify, you can use other another abbreviation — TGE (Token Generation Event) — an event for the token generation.

How can you make money with ICO?

The same way you would with old-fashioned stocks. During ICO tokens are sold at the starting price, which is way lower than what it would cost in case of successful implementation of the project. For that reason ICOs are sometimes called “token sale”. Companies, which issue tokens, typically redeem them up at a price significantly higher than the starting price.

That is, you buy a thousand tokens for one dollar and a year after sell them for $5. You have just made 400% annually — not so bad, right?

Of course it is not a fairytale… If we look back at the stock market state in its early years we will find peculiar similarities:

First stock market crash happened in England in 1720 and led to passing of Bubble Act — the name speaks for itself.
As you know history repeats itself, but, in my opinion, first is farce… Second is tragedy… stock market boom that took place two hundred years later in the United States led to the collapse of the entire US economy and plunge of the country into the Great Depression….

But let’s look at the brighter side — some people make billions in stocks! One of the richest people in the world — Warren Buffett — made his fortune in stocks!

In the XXI century the money lie in cryptocurrencies and tokens!

Let us visualize: If you had bought bitcoins in November 2016 for $740 then you would have sold them in November 2017 for $7400 (according to https://charts.bitcoin.com/chart/price) netting 900% annually!!!

As for the tokens — there are those, which outdone Bitcoin growth, e.g. Stratis, whose ROI (Return on Investment — another lingo word you are likely to hear) was over twenty two thousand per cent! Apart from that Stratis tokens will yield dividends like proper stocks!

Another additional successful ICO project — media blockchain GOLOS. If you still do not know what it is, you can peruse their site, which is a source of peculiar news from IT field: https://golos.blog Its ROI has been 398%.

Also if potential investors feel that the project is profitable, its tokens will sell like hotbitcakes! Just imagine: an innovative browser Brave sold more than 35 million dollars in 30 seconds! Apparently the investors were hooked on the idea of receiving cryptocurrency for ad views! To me it looks like a pretty legit idea….

One would think right away:
“Where can you get the latest news about ICO?”

Special sites cater to those needs — they are called ICO trackers. These websites provide information about issues of new tokens, their stats and information…. Here is a list of ICO trackers:

https://www.coinschedule.com
https://www.coingecko.com/en
https://www.numizmo.com
https://icobazaar.com
https://www.tokendata.io
https://www.tokentops.com
https://www.coin-list.com
https://urbancrypto.com/ongoing-icos/
http://icochecker.com/ico-coming
http://icodaily.net/

You can contact founders of projects, ask experts and gossip with other investors on a dedicated forum https://bitcointalk.org.

All decent ICO projects have their YouTube channels, accounts and groups on Facebook, Twitter, Telegram and other social media… If the project is a real deal it will allocate enough resources on PR and ad campaign.

You should always be able to find White Paper and Road Map, which will guide you through all stages of the project and useful information for the investors.

There should be photos of the project team and links to their social network profiles. From these photos should look people with Prudence and Integrity in their eyes, otherwise you might be in trouble…

Pay attention to sections, where it is described how you can reimburse your funds in case the project will turn pear-shaped; will they have unsold tokens burned — in this case tokens, remaining with investors, are going to grow in price.

It also looks reassuring if the project has some material base, that is — if it is connected to real economy. For example, Global Metrology Project has a Metrology Lab that is in such high demand that it plans to develop their own network of centers around the world.

In the process of choosing of a sound project for investment it is very important not to hit a snag, i.e. give money to scammers. Some ICO trackers actually warn about dishonest or straight away shady enterprises. Actually, it is a topic of a completely different article, and I might preach a sermon on it later.

How can you detect a shady enterprise — you can check the project for all the things I have been talking about in the last paragraph:

Have the founders got a White Book? Is it a back of the napkin?
Are all the conditions of investment stated?
Do the rates even look real?
All they talk about is “blockchain”, but they have no connection to real economy? Shady!

Sometimes project with high hype turn out to be HYIP (High Yield Investment Program) — a kind of Ponzi scheme. Its organizers will promise you pie-in-the-sky dividends AND will actually pay them. At first… Then everything will follow the melody of Robbing Peter to pay Paul tune.

One of the brand new Ponzi schemes of the XXI century is OneCoin — it has already gathered $250 M among the growing talks about its untrustworthiness and shadiness.

Certainly there are projects, which will return investment ten- or hundredfold. They are mostly connected with blockchain technology enhancement or application: starting from crypto stock markets, crypto banks and crypto casinos and all the way to tow truck, taxies and dating agencies.

So, as experts would suggest:
“Thoushalt not fear to invest — Thou shalt fear shady ICOs!”

Firstly, do not sell your kidney to buy some crypto money,

Secondly, most experts advice to diversify:
Do not put all of your investment in one ICO.”

Lastly:
You have to spend time to earn money. Information equals money, so you would have to monitor zounds of sites and channels to increase your profit!

All decent ICO projects have their YouTube channels, accounts and groups on Facebook, Twitter, Telegram and other social media… If the project is a real deal it will allocate enough resources on PR and ad campaign.

You should always be able to find White Paper and Road Map, which will guide you through all stages of the project and useful information for the investors.

There should be photos of the project team and links to their social network profiles. From these photos should look people with Prudence and Integrity in their eyes, otherwise you might be in trouble…

Pay attention to sections, where it is described how you can reimburse your funds in case the project will turn pear-shaped; will they have unsold tokens burned — in this case tokens, remaining with investors, are going to grow in price.

It also looks reassuring if the project has some material base, that is — if it is connected to real economy. For example, Global Metrology Project has a Metrology Lab that is in such high demand that it plans to develop their own network of centers around the world.

In the process of choosing of a sound project for investment it is very important not to hit a snag, i.e. give money to scammers. Some ICO trackers actually warn about dishonest or straight away shady enterprises. Actually, it is a topic of a completely different article, and I might preach a sermon on it later.

How can you detect a shady enterprise — you can check the project for all the things I have been talking about in the last paragraph:

Have the founders got a White Book? Is it a back of the napkin?
Are all the conditions of investment stated?
Do the rates even look real?
All they talk about is “blockchain”, but they have no connection to real economy? Shady!

Sometimes project with high hype turn out to be HYIP (High Yield Investment Program) — a kind of Ponzi scheme. Its organizers will promise you pie-in-the-sky dividends AND will actually pay them. At first… Then everything will follow the melody of Robbing Peter to pay Paul tune.

One of the brand new Ponzi schemes of the XXI century is OneCoin — it has already gathered $250 M among the growing talks about its untrustworthiness and shadiness.

Certainly there are projects, which will return investment ten- or hundredfold. They are mostly connected with blockchain technology enhancement or application: starting from crypto stock markets, crypto banks and crypto casinos and all the way to tow truck, taxies and dating agencies.

So, as experts would suggest:
“Thoushalt not fear to invest — Thou shalt fear shady ICOs!”

Firstly, do not sell your kidney to buy some crypto money,

Secondly, most experts advice to diversify:
Do not put all of your investment in one ICO.”

Lastly:
You have to spend time to earn money. Information equals money, so you would have to monitor zounds of sites and channels to increase your profit!

Dharma: An open protocol for generic tokenized debt agreements

Dharma is a permissionless, generic protocol for issuing, underwriting, and administering debt agreements as tradeable cryptographic tokens. We are fresh out of YCombinator’s Summer batch and are committed to building universal, secure infrastructure for the blockchain-based credit markets of tomorrow. Read the technical white paper here.

Motivation

In 2011, Marc Andreesen famously wrote that software is eating the world. In 2017, we propose an addendum: Blockchains are eating the financial system. One after another, the asset classes that store the financial system’s value are being subsumed, swallowed, or augmented by tokenized analogues.

Equity markets provide the most lucid example of this phenomenon. Token sales have created an attractive, egalitarian alternative to the time-intensive process of raising capital in an equity fundraise — and we’ve barely begun to scratch the surface.


ICOs have created an attractive and lucrative alternative to raising money via equity fundraising mechanisms

But why stop with equity?

In the legacy financial system, equity is a much smaller asset class than debt — the total value of global equity hovers at around $73T, a relatively modest sum in comparison to the $213T in global debt assets. The mania around token sales has demonstrated that tokens are useful for representing assets with both utility value and equity-like properties; the natural next step is to port the world’s loans, bonds, and debt instruments into openly tradeable, permissionless tokens.


The total value of global debt assets vastly exceeds that of global equities.

A future in which debt agreements are a tokenized primitive would be a step-function improvement over the status quo, massively lowering the activation energy required to raise debt capital, trade debt instruments, and build credit derivatives. Moreover, the debt industry is notoriously rife with systemic opaqueness and governance crises, and arguably stands to gain the most from transparent blockchain-native infrastructure.

The end-state ideal is clear — the world’s debt infrastructure should and will get ported over to blockchains like Ethereum.

But how do we get there?

The First Step

Many projects and protocols — including Dharma protocol’s previous incarnation — have attempted to tackle this problem by building one-off systems optimized for specific classes of lending, be they peer-to-peer consumer micro-loan networks or decentralized margin lending protocols.

These solutions share a common drawback — they are narrowly tailored towards a particular class of debt. This is problematic because debt is a massively varied asset class, with incarnations ranging from receivables factoring to sovereign bonds — building a secure, bespoke protocol mechanism for each use case is extremely inefficient and redundant.

Moreover, we lack a common interface with which buyers, sellers, wallets, and exchanges can programmatically interact with tokenized debts. A future where tokenized debts are liquidly tradeable requires us to standardize a universal mechanism for representing debts as tokens.

All in all, if we want to build a general purpose, tokenized credit market, a necessary first step is to establish a common standard for how debts are issued, underwritten, and administered as tokens. This is our aim in building Dharma protocol.

Introducing Dharma Protocol:

Dharma protocol is a highly generic construction that allows debt agreements of virtually any type to be issued, crowdfunded, and traded as tokens. We seek to build a common, secure infrastructural layer on top of which lending applications of any type can be easily built and monetized.

We optimize for the following design goals:

  • Generic — the protocol must enable the representation of virtually any type of debt agreement as a digital asset.
  • Private — the protocol must not leak private, sensitive data from debtors and creditors alike on-chain.
  • Extensible — the protocol must be useful as a primitive on top of which more complex credit applications can be built — be those on-chain collateralized margin lending schemes, smart contract-based credit derivatives, or zero knowledge credit scoring systems.
  • Transparent — the protocol must enable traders to thoroughly reason about the current value, credit risk, and repayment status of any debt token without having to consult a central authority or administrator.
  • Un-ambiguous — the protocol must codify a debt agreement’s repayment terms in a manner that is incontrovertible, unambiguous, and easily interpretable by smart contracts and similar automata.
  • Un-opinionated — the protocol must be agnostic to the means by which constituent applications choose to deter defaults and delinquencies, be those legally binding off-chain loan documents, on-chain collateralization schemes, or mechanisms that are yet to be developed.

Dharma protocol is built on top of the 0x Protocol, leveraging the 0x order schema as a fundamental primitive on top of which we construct a debt issuance scheme. To dig into the technical specifics of the protocol, we encourage you to study the Dharma white paper and provide your feedback, thoughts, and criticisms in our Chat Channel.

What applications can be built on Dharma?

Dharma is not an end-user lending application, but, rather, a suite of smart contracts, standards, and protocols that make it easy for anyone in the world to build and monetize diverse lending applications that leverage tokenized debt agreements.

We highlight just a few interesting applications—

  1. Tokenized Municipal Bonds— municipalities frequently finance public infrastructure projects by issuing municipal bonds. With an open debt standard, municipalities big and small can sell tokenized bonds directly to their constituents in a process similar to an ICO.
  2. Decentralized Margin Lending — healthy financial systems require both speculators and skeptics, which is why margin buys and sells are fundamental components of any liquid financial market. With an open debt standard, peer-to-peer margin lending schemes can be constructed using smart contracts and price feed oracles.
  3. Tokenized SAFTs — projects often raise staggering amounts of capital in order to finance their eventual token sales in vehicles known as SAFTs. With an open debt standard, SAFT agreements can be tokenized as generic debt tokens, where the expected repayment is defined in units of the soon-to-be deployed protocol token.

For those interested in building applications that leverage Dharma protocol, we encourage you to sign up for the Dharma Developer Mailing List — we’ll be releasing weekly tutorials and technical content to get you up to speed on the inner workings of the protocol and easy ways you can build lending applications that leverage it.

More importantly, join the discussion on our chat channel — we’re excited to see what sorts of novel applications and innovations will come out of the community.

Finally, Dharma Labs is hiring — if you’re interested in building out foundational infrastructure for tomorrow’s credit markets, drop us a line and we’d love to meet you.

Note: Dharma is not currently doing a token sale and will not do so unless a compelling need for a protocol token emerges in the ecosystem’s development, be that 2 months from now, 2 years from now, or never.

Nadav Hollander is Founder & CEO of Dharma Labs — a YCombinator and Polychain Capital backed R&D shop focused on building infrastructure for a borderless, inclusive credit market.

Nadav was formerly an engineer at both Coinbase & Google, and graduated from Stanford University with a B.S. in Computer Science.

Interview with CyberMiles ICO Team

ICOnow: Can you briefly introduce us to the your project?
CyberMiles is a new blockchain protocol being developed to revolutionize how digital commerce and online marketplaces work. Imagine a world in which consumers can buy and sell products among themselves with the same confidence and certainty as they would from Amazon or Walmart. Or if individuals could create their own marketplaces and manage these communities in a truly democratic way. Now imagine you could help shape this technology by being part of the network, that’s the world we’re creating.

ICOnow: How well does your team work together?
Very well. Dr. Lucas Lu (founder/CEO of 5miles) has worked with many members of team from previous posts at Alibaba and Light-in-the-Box, and has built up the 5miles platform to its current scale (12 million users and estimated $3 billion of annual transaction value) over the last 3 years. He has known Dr. Michael Yuan (Chief Scientist at CyberMiles) for years, and Dr. Yuan came on board in 2017 as a technical expert to help start CyberMiles. 5miles will be a strategic partner for the CyberMiles Foundation, and serve as the first large ecosystem to adopt the CyberMiles blockchain solutions.

ICOnow: Which projects were implemented by your team or part of your team earlier?
The team consists of seasoned engineers who have created and successfully scaled real-world enterprise software solutions: Lucas, a longtime entrepreneur and e-commerce veteran, previously started LightInTheBox (NYSE:LITB) and also had worked in the mobile unit of e-commerce giant, Alibaba; while Michael has significant startup experience as well. (You can learn more about the background of each at cm.5miles.com.)

ICOnow: How long have you been working on this idea?
Since early 2017. (The CyberMiles foundation itself, incorporated in Hong Kong, was formed in October 2017.)

ICOnow: What risks do you see for implementing the project?
At this time, engineering efforts to scale blockchain solutions is most needed to advance the adoption of the technology.

ICOnow: What about competitors?
Compared to typical crypto-currency startups, CyberMiles has two major differences: First our team is highly experienced with e-commerce including dozens of years working on average leading marketplace platforms that, in turn. enable us to develop and execute better on solutions for commercial applications. Second our 5miles marketplace has grown to 12 million users as well as millions of transactions per year across more than 20 categories. This can be used to spearhead the early adoption for CyberMiles — and boost our ability to disrupt real-world business practices with innovation.

ICOnow: Why do we need your tokens?
Initially it is an ERC20. But our ultimate goal is to replace Ethereum — at least in the world of e-commerce applications. That will require our own token. So, CMT will be exchanged 1:1 with our ERC20 token later. (This is what QTUM and a number of other projects have done.) The tokens will then be utilized to run processes such as dispute resolutions, creation of new online marketplaces, encrypting and decentralizing user information to enhance privacy and cybersecurity, and form the basis for alternative credit system to support financing and to facilitate safe transaction settlements.

ICOnow: Where do you see the value of your tokens in the medium to long term and the ultimate benefit for token holders?
We are building a new blockchain network with its own native token called CMT. However, before the network reaches production we will issue ERC20 tokens instead. People can use the ERC20 tokens very soon in the 5miles app but without the benefit of the native CMT. (For example, the ERC20 can be used to purchase services on 5miles but not yet pay for the execution of your own “Smart Business Contracts,” etc.) Once the CyberMiles blockchain goes into production we will exchange the ERC20 tokens 1:1 with the real CMT.

ICOnow: Have you secured deals with trading exchanges yet and will you want to disclose which exchanges will be trading your tokens?
We are in the process of finalizing cooperation with several exchanges, but formal announcement will not be made until after the ICO close. Furthermore, the token will not be listed until the first applications are launched and utilized on 5miles.

ICOnow: After a successful ICO, what is the timeline for coming to market?
Tokens will be issued within a month after the conclusion of the ICO (so roughly around the new year).

ICOnow: What about presale politics (dates, terms, discount)?
Our private stage contribution (pre-sale) period ended on Oct. 24, raising millions pre-ICO: https://venturebeat.com/2017/10/24/cybermiles-raises-millions-in-pre-ico-private-stage-investment-opportunity

ICOnow: Are you focused in any specific geographic areas?
5miles currently focuses on US market, but CyberMiles Foundation will have contributors from many countries and will look to support e-commerce applications globally.

ICOnow: Do you already have a product or a prototype?
Beta version of the first applications on 5miles already in development, with plans to be launched by the end of this year.

ICOnow: Can you highlight the features that are unique to you project that sets it apart from similar projects in the space?
Please refer to our posts on medium.com: https://medium.com/search?q=cybermiles

ICOnow: Which permitted legal field did you choose for the company?
E-commerce applications

Looking for the right token

By Sunny Lake co-founder: Jean-Christophe Despres.

If an ICO is obviously about attracting investors, may come the question of attracting the “right ones”. Getting away with a quick win may therefore lead to poor strategic choices then end up with a lose-lose operation. Starting from that, we want to take time on finding out how our token will provide a breakthrough in our industry leading to a sustainable eco-system. From general to specific, here’s our initial statement:

  1. Quality of research is the most important challenge of contemporary medicine
  2. There will be no “one-platform-fits-all” solution
  3. Let’s build an ecosystem and tokenize it

Facts

Clinical Research is severely undermined even compromised by bad quality studies. There are many teams focusing on “Research on research” such as Ionnanidis, whose seminal paper in 2003 shed a new light on biomedical research asserting a poor reproducibility rate of clinical studies of at least 20%. The same Ioannidis authored a paper in 2013 bringing this rate at a minimum of 80%.

This is critical, we have to get in mind that ultimately all the healthcare system, all the daily decisions made by professionals rely on clinical studies and precisely on the publications governing the so-called evidence based medicine which alleged results are doubtful. This finding is somehow harsh, the current state of the art is affected by numerous bias which put together explains this remarkable low rate.

Trust is everything.

Being in the Blockchain industry means paying tribute to the pioneers who opened the way of trustlesness ideal. So, if Bitcoin is still the major achievement, not only money shall be disrupted in such a way.

It’s about defective institutions which need new paradigms, not with words, but with uncorrupted records and contracts.We need Distributed Autonomous Organizations.

As for health industry — failing consents, misinformations between stakeholders, wrong and manipulated data or even fake patients — which undermine trust then affect so many people lives.

What is required

  • building the technical blockchain environment compliant with security, robustness, real-time, usability, compliant with the utmost sensitivity of health issues.
  • building the right regulation compliant environment in order to account the diversity of health data regulations around the world and deduce common practices
  • health data streams : shareable, securely storable, interoperable, re-usable : patients should control their data, data should help validate, data should be reusable for research purposes. A health oriented IDFS with standard formats for health data-type to be interoperable.
  • CRO’s of a new kind, digitalized, blockchained real life and clinical studies execution. Every step of a clinical trial should be notarized. The blockchainisation must be global in the sense that steps are to be achieved and instantiated following conditions that should be tracked through smart contracts
  • fast prototyping research: patients are the experts of their daily lives. New medicine made “bonds” by questioning them. They have always been questionable, digital era makes medicine reasonably questionable by them.
  • real life research clinical trials are long, complex and expensive and should be conducted to unvalidate specific hypothesis, in the sought of defined outcomes. They have to be completed by observational studies that can be conducted in a more routinely way. This should leverage the daily-tera-huge flood of data from which we can extract health meaning. Web and IoT will be the main lakes from which data erupts. These studies can be done at high rate, and this suppose we shift to new methodological tools : TWICS, Direct-to-Peer studies, BOYD

Here comes the ideal token: for the expertise layers to become an eco-system, we need a link, a binder that make the interactions smoother, and that’s where the token logics comes in. Building the right incentive is the key of this ecosystem. Value will come out the tremendous amount of money saved by automation, trustworthy protocol and, on top of that, explosion of quality data to feed research. Reliable data is gold, health data are goldmine.

Bhajan, Gita and Veda level thinking of CryptoAssets and Token Economics

Bhajan, Gita and Veda are hindi words when translated into english it stands for Metaphor, Mental Model & First Principles level of thinking.

As I was explaining blockchain, bitcoin, ethereum to few folks interested in ICOs I found it useful to explain it through above three levels of focus. Being a new space there is ton of information out there, folks end up mixing all different level thinking and it confuses more than clarifying.

Not just blockchain any novel or unprecedented topics it is useful to dial focus with the above depths of thinking.

To define something at Bhajan (metaphor) level is to ask if it passes the ‘Grandmother’ test for comprehension and ‘Chinese whisper’ test of repeatability.


Bhajan (Metaphor) Level

Gita (mental model) level is arriving at the right mental model for something that makes it tractable to address most aspects related to it. Farnamstreet blog is a treasure trove for thinking about mental models in general in life.


Gita (Mental Model) Level

In the Veda(first principle) level everything is questioned, sometimes recursively till one runs out of question and asks what has changed in the most fundamental way and how to adjust our understanding of current mental model.


Veda (First principles) level

99 % of the world operates at the Bhajan (Metaphor) level, < 1% like Charlie Munger attempt to learn the Gita (Mental model) level, a very tiny fraction amongst philosophers, scientists & certain type of entrepreneurs (Elon Musk) question in first principle.

Key point of my explanation to ICO interested folks was that enthusiasts can suffice with Bhajan (metaphor) level of understanding, most investors may operate at Gita(mental model) level but entrepreneurs and investors must operate at Veda (first principle) level & easily traverse all the the three or it may end up being too risky.

Few things that stood out for me when thinking about cryptoassets

  • We don’t have very good Bhajan (metaphor) yet in the cryptoassets world.
  • No other space like crypto where the changes across Bhajan (metaphor), Gita (mental model) & Veda (first principles) level are so interconnected and rapidly changing.
  • Regulator who eventually decides something to be legal is most often a Gita (mental model) level thinker and gets swayed by strong Bhajan (metaphor) movements. (Ex – Net Neutrality)
  • Veda (first principles) level thinkers are public intellectual or thought leaders, thought leaders usually have an agenda. So when following someone here have to make this distinction

There are many good thinkers out there in the crypto space and it is attracting some of the best thinkers towards it. Below is my mental map of the various type of thinkers that are out there. How would you revise it ?

Veda thinkers — Naval Ravikant, Nick Szabo, CryptoMedici, Zhao, Vitalik Buterin

Gita level thinker — Ari Paul, Fred Wilson, Andreas Antoupolous, Chris Burniske, William Mougayar

Bhajan level thinkers are most of the blogs and youtube videos out there.

Mise à jour des progrès de Bancor

Fin de l’été 2017

Bonjour communauté de Bancor,

Cet été fut riche en événements depuis notre TGE et l’activation du premier Jeton Intelligent au monde (BNT) qui, depuis, a été sainement négocié, directement à travers son contrat.

Nous avons manqué d’être en contact étroit avec vous alors que nous nous sommes envolés pour mettre la maison en ordre, mettre en place des plans pour notre croissance future et nous assurer que nous couvrons les bases en termes de structure, de communication et de conformité pour la longévité de ce projet à long terme qui vise à créer à l’avenir une nouvelle norme intelligente pour l’industrie

Vous trouverez ci-dessous une liste partielle des activités sur lesquelles nous nous sommes penchés. Cet automne, nous allons revenir à des mises à jour régulières pour que vous puissiez suivre les derniers développements et, bien sûr, toujours poser des questions, soumettre des commentaires et explorer les moyens d’approfondir le projet. Nous vous souhaitons la bienvenue dans tous nos canaux et nous sommes particulièrement actifs dans notre groupe Telegram qui est animé par les membres de la communauté pour une discussion positive et productive. Nous aimerions vous voir là-bas.

Bancor Premiers pas Réseau de liquidité

  • Un volume d’échange de 302702 éther a eu lieu sur la on-chain grâce au contrat intelligent BNT depuis son activation le 22 juin 2017.

Service Web Bancor

Notre communauté Bancor de création de service en production a été utilisé pour exploiter notre programme de primes crowd-source, l’un des plus grand et le plus productif jamais exécuté dans l’espace. Nous croyons qu’il est essentiel d’utiliser le service Bancor pour des applications basées sur des jetons du réseau Ethereum avec des cas d’utilisation réels afin de l’améliorer. Nos programmes de primes nous permettent de continuer à atteindre cet objectif tout en s’engageant positivement avec la communauté, en rejoignant de nouveaux membres et en créant des effets de réseau qui se propagent vers l’extérieur pour le bien du projet.

  • Nous avons construit et lancé la possibilité de convertir des jetons de prime (à savoir Jetons Intelligent) en BNT et les envoyer à un porte-monnaie externe.

Développement des affaires

Nous mettons l’accent sur la collaboration dans le cadre de notre volonté d’intégrer diverses initiatives et de créer un écosystème vraiment sain. Voici les technologies que nous explorons:

Déploiement des jetons intelligents

Il existe de nombreux jetons intelligents dans différentes étapes de la mise en œuvre des contrats intelligents. Ils sont tous des entreprises indépendantes qui ont choisi d’utiliser la technologie de protocole Bancor. Certains des cas d’utilisation incluent:

  • Asset tokenizer (semblables à Digix, pour d’autres types d’actifs)
  • Plateformes de messagerie décentralisée
  • Matériel et périphériques liés à la Blockchain
  • Fonds de risque fondés sur des jetons (semblable à ICONOMI, TaaS)
  • Services financiers
  • Jetons dédié au jeu
  • Contenu généré par l’utilisateur
  • Passerelles de paiement
  • Marketing de fidélité
  • Devises communautaires, existantes et nouvelles
  • Et beaucoup plus…

Diffusion du message

Il n’est pas trivial de bien comprendre la valeur fondamentale du protocole Bancor, tout comme il n’est pas trivial de comprendre les contrats intelligents, même aujourd’hui. Nous mettons en place des infrastructures pour créer des contenus de haute qualité, du matériel didactique et pédagogique autour de ces sujets et plus encore. En attendant, nous continuons à battre le pavé et à partager les avantages de Bancor avec les principaux intervenants.

Mise à jour des progrès de Bancor

Fin de l’été 2017

Bonjour communauté de Bancor,

Cet été fut riche en événements depuis notre TGE et l’activation du premier Jeton Intelligent au monde (BNT) qui, depuis, a été sainement négocié, directement à travers son contrat.

Nous avons manqué d’être en contact étroit avec vous alors que nous nous sommes envolés pour mettre la maison en ordre, mettre en place des plans pour notre croissance future et nous assurer que nous couvrons les bases en termes de structure, de communication et de conformité pour la longévité de ce projet à long terme qui vise à créer à l’avenir une nouvelle norme intelligente pour l’industrie

TokenClub announces October token basket

Hello from the TokenClub Team!

Happy Halloween weekend! We hope you’re having a great one. (Insert ghastly Halloween-related pun here). This month has been inspiring and we’ve had a lot of fun spinning up TokenClub and connecting and talking with many of you. We really appreciate all of your support, and with your help, we’re going to continue to build TokenClub into the best token subscription service on the planet.

New to TokenClub? You might want to read “Introducing TokenClub — your ‘monthly subscription box’ for ICO tokens” first.

We’ve done our absolute best to put together an amazing basket of top-tier tokens for you this month. We hope you find massive value in TokenClub and we always enjoy hearing from you, so feel free to email us any time or join our growing Telegram group.

Without further ado, we’re thrilled to announce your October token selection from TokenClub. Let’s dive in.

The Tokens

Render (RNDR)

Render is a project to allow distributed GPU rendering on the blockchain. RenderToken counts among its advisors Eric Schmidt, the chairman and former CEO of Google, Hollywood megaproducer J.J. Abrams, and Brendan Eich, creator of JavaScript and co-founder of the Mozilla project. OTOY, the company behind RNDR, already has an in-market product offering cloud rendering services with big-name customers such as Facebook and Unity.

RNDR Phase I — Development Begins Now!

AirSwap (AST)

AirSwap is a decentralized exchange platform backed by ConsenSys, one of the top global blockchain firms as well as other strategic partners and advisors. The cofounder, Michael Oved, helped his previous company “become the most consistently profitable market maker in the history of electronic trading”. More details about AirSwap are available here: This 31-Year-Old Is Trying to Revolutionize Cryptocurrency Trading

Request (REQ)

Request Network is a decentralized platform that allows anyone to request peer-to-peer payments. Its goal is to replace payment systems such as PayPal and make the most advanced payment terms available to everyone. Request’s most notable claim to fame is it’s the first ICO backed by the infamous Silicon Valley accelerator Y Combinator. Request is going up against some payment heavyweights, but the market opportunity is so big that it has massive upside potential if it can execute. Request is staffed by a proven team who has been consistently working together and raising successive financing rounds over the past several years. Read more about Request Network here: Request Network web site

Polkadot (DOT)

Polkadot is a potentially transformative multi-chain technology, allowing interoperability between multiple blockchains. It’s built to connect private/consortium chains, public/permissionless networks, oracles and future technological developments yet to be created in the Web3 ecosystem. Gavin Wood, Ethereum co-creator, is a primary contributor on the project.

Polkadot is one of our most heavily weighted tokens this month due to exceptional founder pedigree, potentially transformative platform, and X factor.

More information about Polkadot is available here: https://polkadot.io

EnjinCoin (ENJ)

EnjinCoin is a customizable cryptocurrency and virtual goods platform for gaming. Enjin is already the largest social gaming website platform in the world with:

  • 18.7 million gamers and hosting over 250,000 gaming communities
  • Reaches 60 million global views per month
  • Millions of USD per month in virtual goods sales

EnjinCoin promises:

  • An ERC-20 token supported by a powerful framework of open-source smart contracts and software development kits (SDKs)
  • Virtual goods on the blockchain: A decentralized platform to create, manage, distribute, and trade virtual goods. Giving game developers and content creators a new model of virtual ownership.
  • SDKs for the game industry: Enjin Coin platform is made for the game industry. SDKs for multiple languages, wallets and payment platforms will be available and completely open-source.
  • Gaming with true item ownership: Online gamers can bring or trade their assets from game to game, community to community, growing their digital wallet with real value as they play.
  • A solution to fraud and high fees: For every legitimate virtual item purchase, 7.5 items are lost to fraud. Enjin Coin minted virtual goods will guarantee trust and security with minimal transaction fees.

More information about EnjinCoin is available here: https://enjincoin.io

Ripio (RCN)

The Ripio Credit Network is a global credit network based on cosigned smart contracts and blockchain technology that connects lenders and borrowers located anywhere in the world and on any currency. They have a star-studded team including advisors and strategic partners such as the co-founder of Rootstock, the fintech lead at Consensys, Tim Draper, the Digital Currency Group, Pantera Capital, and others.

More information about Ripio is available on their web site and here:

https://www.coindesk.com/ripio-2-3-million-series-a-bitcoin/

Raiden (RDN)

Raiden Network promises to bring fast, cheap, scalable token transfers to Ethereum. As one of the emerging “lightning networks”, Raiden aims to bring MasterCard/VISA-level of transaction quantity and speed to Ethereum. The graphic design of this project doesn’t look like much compared to some of it’s flashy ICO contemporaries, but don’t be fooled — The project is very well regarded by the community, backed by in-production, transformative technology, and has been around since 2015. More information about Raiden is available at the Raiden Network website.

Here’s an article in praise of Raiden by Ryan Zurrer of Polychain Capital.

Raiden — Fundamental Infrastructure led by a Great Team

GUTS (GET)

Everybody knows the event ticketing industry is ripe for blockchain disruption. Between fees, ticket touting, secondary markets and pre-sales/fan engagement, there’s much to gain from being blockchain native. GUTS is one of the entrants to this market with the best design and proven execution so far. Check out their gorgeous web site for one signal about how they do business. GUTS is based in the Netherlands and is making a big push in Europe, which could be one way they can create a beachhead to take on the more North America-focused Ticketmaster. GUTS has technology in market already, and has already sold thousands of tickets on the blockchain. We look forward to seeing what they can do once they finish their ICO and shore up their war chest.

Check out this in-depth article on GUTS here: GUTS — Revolutionizing The Ticketing Industry

Please note: Token delivery

If you’ve provided us with an Ethereum wallet address, token delivery will take place over the next few days. If you’ve elected the TokenClub Vault, your tokens will be held in safe keeping until you’re ready to withdraw. Shortly you’ll be receiving a customized receipt with the exact value of each token you’ve purchased.

The following tokens will be delivered immediately:

  • Render
  • Polkadot
  • AirSwap
  • Request
  • Ripio

The following tokens have a lock-up period enforced by the ICO and will be delivered as soon as they’ve been unlocked:

  • EnjinCoin (Midnight October 31st)
  • Raiden (When auction ends — Latest date currently November 4th)
  • GUTS (When ICO ends — TBD)

We’ll send out a notification along with your tokens the moment each of them can be transferred.

Please note: November billing dates

We’re going to begin to syndicate billing dates so that if you subscribed any time after October 1st, each month we’ll move your billing date back by 1 week until it reaches the first of the month. This is so that eventually, all subscribers will have a billing date of the 1st of the month.

Example: You subscribed October 5th. Your next billing date will be November 1st. Your next billing date after that will be December 1st.

Example: You subscribed October 10th. Your next billing date will be November 3rd. Your next billing date after that will be December 1st.

We understand people do planning around subscription dates, and if this is an issue for you at all, just email us or submit a support request and we can keep your billing date the same as it is now.

Thank you

In closing, we’re really proud of the community you’re helping us build around TokenClub. We want to keep you very happy and provide you massive value every month. If there’s anything you think we can do better, or anything you’d like to see from TokenClub, please let us know! Reach out any time via email at support@tokenclub.co, tweet us at @TokenClub, or chat with us on Telegram. And keep an eye out for your personalized token receipt and token delivery over the coming 2 days.

Best regards,
Scott Burke
Chief Executive Officer

Raiden (RDN)

Raiden Network promises to bring fast, cheap, scalable token transfers to Ethereum. As one of the emerging “lightning networks”, Raiden aims to bring MasterCard/VISA-level of transaction quantity and speed to Ethereum. The graphic design of this project doesn’t look like much compared to some of it’s flashy ICO contemporaries, but don’t be fooled — The project is very well regarded by the community, backed by in-production, transformative technology, and has been around since 2015. More information about Raiden is available at the Raiden Network website.

Here’s an article in praise of Raiden by Ryan Zurrer of Polychain Capital.

GUTS (GET)

Everybody knows the event ticketing industry is ripe for blockchain disruption. Between fees, ticket touting, secondary markets and pre-sales/fan engagement, there’s much to gain from being blockchain native. GUTS is one of the entrants to this market with the best design and proven execution so far. Check out their gorgeous web site for one signal about how they do business. GUTS is based in the Netherlands and is making a big push in Europe, which could be one way they can create a beachhead to take on the more North America-focused Ticketmaster. GUTS has technology in market already, and has already sold thousands of tickets on the blockchain. We look forward to seeing what they can do once they finish their ICO and shore up their war chest.

Please note: Token delivery

If you’ve provided us with an Ethereum wallet address, token delivery will take place over the next few days. If you’ve elected the TokenClub Vault, your tokens will be held in safe keeping until you’re ready to withdraw. Shortly you’ll be receiving a customized receipt with the exact value of each token you’ve purchased.

The following tokens will be delivered immediately:

  • Render
  • Polkadot
  • AirSwap
  • Request
  • Ripio

The following tokens have a lock-up period enforced by the ICO and will be delivered as soon as they’ve been unlocked:

  • EnjinCoin (Midnight October 31st)
  • Raiden (When auction ends — Latest date currently November 4th)
  • GUTS (When ICO ends — TBD)

We’ll send out a notification along with your tokens the moment each of them can be transferred.

Please note: November billing dates

We’re going to begin to syndicate billing dates so that if you subscribed any time after October 1st, each month we’ll move your billing date back by 1 week until it reaches the first of the month. This is so that eventually, all subscribers will have a billing date of the 1st of the month.

Example: You subscribed October 5th. Your next billing date will be November 1st. Your next billing date after that will be December 1st.

Example: You subscribed October 10th. Your next billing date will be November 3rd. Your next billing date after that will be December 1st.

We understand people do planning around subscription dates, and if this is an issue for you at all, just email us or submit a support request and we can keep your billing date the same as it is now.

Thank you

In closing, we’re really proud of the community you’re helping us build around TokenClub. We want to keep you very happy and provide you massive value every month. If there’s anything you think we can do better, or anything you’d like to see from TokenClub, please let us know!

TokenClub announces October token basket

Hello from the TokenClub Team!

Happy Halloween weekend! We hope you’re having a great one. (Insert ghastly Halloween-related pun here). This month has been inspiring and we’ve had a lot of fun spinning up TokenClub and connecting and talking with many of you. We really appreciate all of your support, and with your help, we’re going to continue to build TokenClub into the best token subscription service on the planet.

New to TokenClub? You might want to read “Introducing TokenClub — your ‘monthly subscription box’ for ICO tokens” first.

We’ve done our absolute best to put together an amazing basket of top-tier tokens for you this month. We hope you find massive value in TokenClub and we always enjoy hearing from you, so feel free to email us any time or join our growing Telegram group.

Without further ado, we’re thrilled to announce your October token selection from TokenClub. Let’s dive in.

The Tokens

Render (RNDR)

Render is a project to allow distributed GPU rendering on the blockchain. RenderToken counts among its advisors Eric Schmidt, the chairman and former CEO of Google, Hollywood megaproducer J.J. Abrams, and Brendan Eich, creator of JavaScript and co-founder of the Mozilla project. OTOY, the company behind RNDR, already has an in-market product offering cloud rendering services with big-name customers such as Facebook and Unity.

AirSwap (AST)

AirSwap is a decentralized exchange platform backed by ConsenSys, one of the top global blockchain firms as well as other strategic partners and advisors. The cofounder, Michael Oved, helped his previous company “become the most consistently profitable market maker in the history of electronic trading”. More details about AirSwap are available here: This 31-Year-Old Is Trying to Revolutionize Cryptocurrency Trading

Request (REQ)

Request Network is a decentralized platform that allows anyone to request peer-to-peer payments. Its goal is to replace payment systems such as PayPal and make the most advanced payment terms available to everyone. Request’s most notable claim to fame is it’s the first ICO backed by the infamous Silicon Valley accelerator Y Combinator. Request is going up against some payment heavyweights, but the market opportunity is so big that it has massive upside potential if it can execute. Request is staffed by a proven team who has been consistently working together and raising successive financing rounds over the past several years. Read more about Request Network here: Request Network web site

Polkadot (DOT)

Polkadot is a potentially transformative multi-chain technology, allowing interoperability between multiple blockchains. It’s built to connect private/consortium chains, public/permissionless networks, oracles and future technological developments yet to be created in the Web3 ecosystem. Gavin Wood, Ethereum co-creator, is a primary contributor on the project.

Polkadot is one of our most heavily weighted tokens this month due to exceptional founder pedigree, potentially transformative platform, and X factor.

More information about Polkadot is available here: https://polkadot.io

EnjinCoin is a customizable cryptocurrency and virtual goods platform for gaming. Enjin is already the largest social gaming website platform in the world with:
