KickCity Update

20.10.2017

There is a current surge in the number of ICOs. Many people who invested in different ICOs have lost, while some — gained. Many companies that raised fund via ICO are going to fail. It’s definitely true that the next Fortune 500 companies will be blockchain-based. Therefore, one of the biggest questions we ask ourselves each day at KickCity is how can we remain very relevant and very successful. As a result, we focus on building great products that people really need. Products that can bring value to end users and to event organizers. We equally focus on getting the right people (influencers and advisors) on board.

The future is here!

That is why we are rolling out technology that will affect people’s lives. We have redesigned Admin Panel for event organizers and we currently testing it. By monday evening (October 23th) we will roll it out and we will be fully supporting 10 US cities and Nigeria. In partnership with one of the biggest payment solution in Africa — Voguepay, we are going to bring results and value to Nigeria and at the same time, KickCity is going to make a lot of money.

Reward Based Referral system supported by smart contracts

As a result oriented company, we thought that it will be best to demo the first version of our incentivized event marketing protocol and have it run several events before our Public Token Sale. This will give us more leverage.

Equally we will run the first ever Token Distribution Event (TDE)and it will also be powered by our P2P protocol — rewarding investors who bring other investors. We raised extra $212,000 which is going strictly into product development as we are focused on bringing the best product onboard and launching in many cities.

We have also decided to reschedule our Public Token Sale. The actual date will be announced on Tuesday (October 24th). The Private deals are still open. So, join the whitelist. We have been attending different events and meeting with top experts in the industry. We are rescheduling the public sale (Token Distribution Event) because we want it to be more professional, with working products in place that will support the flight of KCY tokens and produce better results for us and our investors.

Lets look at the future and achieve greatness together

Our Belief

In KickCity, we do not believe in a one time deal. We believe in long term investments, in long term results. Therefore, we prefer to stay away from get rich quick investors and at the same time we are focused on bringing the best results for the investors that believe in what we believe in.

We believe that there is need for more real use cases of cryptocurrency. The only way to make people use crypto is by creating value for them. Most people do not see any need for cryptocurrencies. What they will gain by using cryptos.

Currently, we are running a survey in University of Houston and we have learnt that most students don’t know about Bitcoins but they are willing to earn by inviting friends to events ( concerts) which they already do.

KickCity will share value among these end users. No more paying Add money to centralized data miners. Its time to share this value among the real owners of these data. KickCity is focusing on events as an entry point because it will be the quickest and most viral way to spread the use of crypto.

By the End of next year, KCY will be one of the most used tokens. Join our Telegram Community and stay tuned!

How to Create an Ethereum Mining Calculator from Start to Finish

Learn how to create an Ethereum mining calculator in Google Sheets

Imagine having an additional $20,000 per year with next to zero work.

Ethereum mining has created an enormous amount of new wealth, and new industries are popping up every day to capitalize on this growing industry. To be successful in Ethereum mining, you need to know the following:

  1. The coin value
  2. Overall network hash rate
  3. Block reward
  4. Block time
  5. Your personal hash rate
  6. Energy cost
  7. Power cost
  8. Hardware cost

All of these items can change drastically at any given time. Luckily, I created a template that automates the process.

The quick and dirty setup (1 minute or less)

  1. Download the Spreadstreet Google Sheets Add-in
  2. Download the pre-populated template with formulas
  3. Open the template, click the menu Add-ons / Spreadstreet / Help / View in store, and then click Manage and in the dropdown menu click Use in this document.
  4. Login to the add-in
  5. Refresh the sheet
  6. Profit

Important You need to do this to activate Spreadstreet: Open the template, click the menu Add-ons / Spreadstreet / Help / View in store, and then click Manage and in the dropdown menu click Use in this document.

The longer, but better setup

Download the free Google Sheets template in the video description to follow along. Click “File — Make a copy” to start your own calculator

Simple Ethereum Mining Calculator Template

1. Download the Spreadstreet Google Sheets Add-in

The Spreadstreet Google Sheets Add-in automates all of the dirty work for you, so you can find out quickly what hardware is the most profitable to mine Ethereum.

Essentially what the add-on does is connect to various popular services within the cryptocurrency space. This calculator uses three services: CoinMarketCap, What to Mine, and Cryptocompare.

2. Pull in ticker information from CoinMarketCap

In cell D1 of the “Data” tab, pull in the ticker information from CoinMarketCap.

This step will pull in:

  • The coin value

This is necessary in order to adjust for the value of the coins you will be receiving from mining. The coin value changes DRASTICALLY on any given day, so this single input can swing the mining profits significantly.

3. Pull in GPU hardware from What to Mine

In cell A1 of the “GPU” tab, pull in the stats endpoint from WhatToMine.

This step will pull in:

  • Overall network hash rate
  • Block reward
  • Block time

What to Mine is a fantastic, relatively new website that is great for finding out what coins are the best to mine “right now”. The purpose of this step is to see what sort of competition you are up against, and what sort of rewards you can anticipate in the short term.

4. Pull in Mining Equipment from Cryptocompare

In cell A1 of the “Equipment” tab, pull in the “Mining Equipment” endpoint from Cryptocompare.

This step will pull in:

  • Your personal hash rate
  • Power cost
  • Hardware cost

Cryptocompare does a great job curating a list of mining equipment for various coins. In order to calculate our share of mining profits, we need to get the hardware’s hash rate, the amount of power that it will use, and how much it will cost.

5. Play around with the inputs

After pulling in all three different inputs, you can now start changing the inputs to see how your calculator profits change. In the “Summary” tab, play around with the inputs to see how the yearly profit changes from different hardware and energy costs.

Best practices

  • Use “Insert” to prevent pinging the services API upon refreshes and reloads
  • If using “Insert as formulas”, be careful with the amount of formulas you put into a sheet, as these services have rate limits on their API
  • 15 minutes is a good standard refresh time for the sheet

Troubleshooting

  1. Formulas refresh on specific actions. If you are using the formulas method, your data will not update unless you do more common options such as refreshing the entire sheet, or less common options such as downloading a new add-in. This is why I recommend using the GUI so you can have control over refreshing the data
  2. If the add-in does not work right away, try this:
  3. You need to do this to activate Spreadstreet: Open the template, click the menu Add-ons / Spreadstreet / Help / View in store, and then click Manage and in the dropdown menu click Use in this document.

Storage and Security

In this post we will talk about storing and securing your crypto currencies. It will be divided in three main subjects: cold wallets, hot wallets and third party wallets.

Cold Wallets

To put it simple, cold storage means to keep a reserve of crypto currencies offline. This is often a necessary security precaution, especially dealing with large amounts of coins.

Now let’s have a look at some examples of Cold Storage methods:

How do I create a paper wallet or a USB drive to storage my coins?

Well, to create a paper wallet all you have to do is visit the website or BitcoinTalk Announcement of the specific crypto currency you want to store. Then, most of the coins have the explanation on how to create their specific paper wallet and upon creation all you have to do is to transfer your funds there.

To create a USB drive all you have to do is to save the correct folder, containing your private keys for that specific coin, into the USB, making also multiple backups. Your private keys, alongside other data used by the wallet itself, are stored here:

Windows Users

C:UsersYourNameAppDataRoamingCoinName

If your “ AppData ” folder is not visible just follow this simple guide on how to make it visible

Mac Users

Hot Wallets

We already know what cold wallets are, so on the contrary hot wallets are wallets that are online and connected in some way to the Internet.

Bitcoin-related services and exchanges that are able to pay out withdrawals instantly can be said to be paying them from a hot wallet. The term can also be used loosely to refer to keeping bitcoins in an exchange where they can be withdrawn on demand. Its real-world analogy is keeping cash on person: easy access, but greatest risk of unrecoverable theft in the event of an attack.

Operating a hot wallet is also a risk to its owner, because most computer systems have hidden vulnerabilities of some sort that can eventually be used by hackers or malware to break into the system and steal the bitcoins.

Keeping large amounts of bitcoins in a hot wallet is a fundamentally poor security practice. Most, if not all of the Bitcoin losses incurred in all the known hackings in Bitcoin history can be attributed to funds kept in hot wallets.

Most reputable services offering Bitcoin withdrawal of some sort will keep a very limited number of bitcoins in a hot wallet to enable immediate withdrawals of small/typical amounts, but will require a delay and manual activity to process a larger withdrawal, as the bitcoins are retrieved from other storage.

Third Party Wallets

These are the wallets you use on exchanges, like Poloniex, Bittrex or any other centralized exchange. Also the Bitcoin debit card services likeXapo or Wirex use the same method of cloud storage, accessible anywhere in the world using any computer or mobile, where you don’t control or have access to your wallet private keys. In essence, if you don’t own your private keys you don’t own the coins in that wallet. It is always up to the third party to secure your money and most of them DO NOT take responsability in case of theaft or loss…

Final Thoughts

From the methods described above, here in BarkVille we like to dig holes and store our USB drives, with most of our coins and with multiple backups, in safe places away from preying eyes. Then we like to keep some hot wallets for our new coins to mine ( remember we are miners too ) and eventually use some third party wallets ( like Xapo or Wirex ) just for pocket change and pay the bills ( yes, we dogs, also have bills and no tax deductions at all ).

If you like this sort of informative post and/or would like to support the pack, feel free to send some dog treats this way ;)

Quantstamp: New story of SMART contract

What is Quantstamp?

Quantstamp is the new startup project which will put a plug in the hole of smart-contract. Using easy method and user-friendly, Quantstamp is one of the startup what will widely use in the world of block chain.

What is the problem Quantstamp prevent?

Yes, Prevent. It is PREVENT. It is NOT protection. Quantstamp prevent and solve the glitch and bug of smart-contract.

Did we remember DAO. hacking?
There are many loss due to that hacked. Quantstamp will audit these smart-contract. We have “https://” and “http://”. However, there are currently no “https://” in smart-contract world. We do not trust http:// so why we trust every smart contract code.

How it work?
Instead of just one company audit the smartcontract, Quantstamp use 4 companies to audit:- Smart contract Developer, Verify Coding developer, Hacker, and anyone who run node for smart contract auditing code. Each will reward by Quantstamp token which paid by the one who want to audit smart contract.

“Quantstamp will PREVENT, yes prevent not repair, the smart contract hole!”

FansUnite — A Love Letter to Bettors

The value of a token is related directly to the utility it unlocks. Traditionally, connecting customers with the inherent utility in a gambling product required expensive gateways controlled by firms that don’t have the customers best interests in mind. Especially for North American bettors, depositing money into an offshore bookie is a disappointing and risky move.

Of course, FAN is a token which avoids all of the troublesome payment problems associated with legacy gambling. By connecting FAN value directly to Ethereum, we are betting on the stability and future value of the Ethereum roadmap. Smart contracts are a natural fit for sports gambling, ensuring contracts are honored exactly as entered — no reneging or canceling of bets.

Decentralized currency is a great argument for passing value to the sports bettor as it allows money to quickly move in and out of the exchange. But is this really what makes a coin valuable? The answer is no and it’s NOT a valid economic argument. The inherent value of a coin is the underlying value of the product or service that the coin facilitates and FAN is laser focused on making bettors happy.

FAN focuses on making sure bets are taken at regular market prices

Peer to Peer networks like Wagerr are interesting but questionable when it comes to economic value. The reason is that liquidity is king. There is a reason why Betfair is an undisputed monopoly. Any token relying on lay betting to generate fees will discover that liquidity is expensive. For this reason, FAN focuses on a sports bookmaking business with exchange like properties. Ensuring bets are taken is the most important function of a bookmaker and our focus from the start is to work towards highest limits at the best price. Can token competitors ensure that bettors will get a market price on a Padres day game? It’s hard to see this when Betfair, Smarkets, Betdaq and 5 tokens are all duking it out for the customers attention.

FAN focuses on Machine Learning to provide stable value and low costs.

We have quietly been beefing up our machine learning team in order to match the technology of the world’s greatest bettors. The main criticism of offering 1 cent vigs is that arbitrage bettors will destroy the underlying value of the coin and it’s a correct assumption to make. Any peer 2 peer offering will inevitably seed markets for years to ensure customers can get bets down on the markets they love. FAN starts from the point of view that Deep Learning methods are the best methodologies to create sharp lines. By creating the sharpest lines that are technologically possible, we can be arbitrage friendly and ensure that our core token base is consistently growing.

But that’s not the only benefit of automated line making! Internally using automation and modern technology drastically reduces our costs and eliminates the need for risk management almost entirely. The large costs incurred by legacy gambling who often employ whole teams to outright ban winners is directly passed on to the customer.

FAN does not compromise stability of operations for unclear gains

Fan is a semi-decentralized exchange. What this means is that we are professionally licensed and regulatorily compliant. We work with regulators to ensure a stable operation. Although decentralization is definitely an avenue that theoretically guarantees survival of prosecution from regulatory bodies, in actuality it is not likely to be effective. The risk that governments and regulatory bodies with deep pockets go after the key stakeholders is not trivial. We are the very first token to have built a relationship with regulatory bodies and licensing authorities and see this as a stabilizing force on the value of the FAN token.

We also know that bettors don’t want to be tracked and profiled by the bookmaker and that’s why we have a strict “hands off” policy to storing of personal information. Although we are KYU compliant, our betting smart contracts merely record your address — not the personal information tied to this address. We store the minimum information required for KYU compliance, and do not record which identity is tied to which address. There is no way we can ever see who is betting and simultaneously are able to ensure the coin base is legal, stable and won’t be blown up by lawsuits or governments for noncompliance.

Our team has core members with key competencies in law(link duncan) and accounting(link darius) and is backed by Victory Square Technologies one of Western Canada’s premier public venture capital companies in Canada. Victory Square offers many ties to government agencies, legal counsel and reliable long term, high integrity investors who won’t “pump and dump” the token. The last thing the average bettor does not want to see is a coin that fluctuates in value due to unforeseen circumstances. Being a public company, Fansunite is committed to transparency and stability.

FAN is focused on providing traditional marketplaces bettors want.

We know that fans want to bet on everything from the NFL to high school Jai Alai, but the focus for the average bettor needs to be on the biggest markets with the types of bets we expect to be there. Our Launch in 2018 will strategically focus on the big 5: MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL and worldwide soccer. We do expect to expand into other great marketplaces in early 2019 but the focus on the largest markets allows us to provide the following bets you love through our sportsbook:

· Moneyline
· Runline/Pointspread
· Totals
· Accumulators
· Parlays
· Props
· Point Buying
· Reverses
· Teasers/Multis
· Pleasers/Multis
· Multi-Chance
· If Bets

In this manner we are much more like 5-Dimes and PinnacleSports.com in the sense that we want to maximize the betting options of the bettors in the biggest markets first. Freedom of choice is pure utility to the bettor that peer2peer and fully decentralized models will never be able to deliver.

FAN is a social token focused on social tools that aid bettors

As we mentioned briefly before, the FAN team is 100% committed to social sports betting. We are well known for our platform which connects bettors to transparent results-based analytics and a second to none social betting environment.

We always ask ourselves the question: Why should bettors like Tony Bloom get to enjoy cutting edge analytics and mathematics and not our fans? Starting in late 2017 our core customer base will get exclusive access to our predictive analytic research dashboard. By open sourcing historical predictive data, we get our customer base to the betting window quicker than ever before. Educating our customers is one of the best ways to foster a loyal token base and as a side effect increases token value simply by reducing research time by up to 80% for the average bettor.

Our sportsbook will directly connect our social network to the bookmaker directly so you can tag along and follow your favorite punters and use our data API to your full advantage. Saving customers time and money while allowing them to get their bet down quickly is pure utility and this is what makes FAN a winning token.

Conclusion

Tokens are only as valuable as the underlying utility they unlock. By empowering our customers with tools and unique data we get them to the bookmaker and give them the bets they want. Fancy coin economic papers are interesting, but does fabricated deflationary economics come into play when the central utility of a token is broken? We are betting that you care more about making bets in markets you like at a good price with no player limits. After all, betting is about having fun and not holding onto tokens like a dusty banker hoping they will go up.

Velocity of transactions is a key to increasing demand but coin stability is key. Because FAN is a token that did the tough work on fostering good regulator relations, you can be ensured that your coin is safe and backed by licenses in every country we operate in.

Last of all, FAN is dependent on good old-fashioned book making skill and by building a core data science team of experts in the field, we make sure the coin base stays put, providing the stable liquidity required to get big enough to grow! We don’t compete with the other tokens but instead hybridize the model to maximize utility aka: welcoming winners at high limits.

Stability, Utility, Accuracy — this is the foundation of FAN.

The Cargo Cult of the Capped Token Sale

The vast majority of post-The DAO token sales have been capped; i.e., have a pre-defined maximum amount for sale. (I refuse to use the godawful term “ICO”, as I think it paints a terribly misleading picture for buyers and sellers alike.) While this is understandable on some level — no one wants a re-run of The DAO — it means that essentially every token’s crowdsale price is artificially lower than its price when it’s listed on public exchanges. Predictably, then, the token sale is mobbed and the tokens are flipped. This was the state of the Ethereum token sale ecosystem about a year ago: weirdly inefficient, but if founders want to leave money on the table, that’s their prerogative, no harm no foul. This price gap between the token sale price and the higher price on public exchanges is the main reason that this space has become such a circus over the past year.

Now throw into the mix projects which are either overt scams/are utterly inept and uninformed investors who are just cargo-culting the price gap; i.e., assuming that a price gap usually or often will exist, without analyzing the fundamentals of the underlying project. My observation: the price gap is usually zero or negative for scam projects and for projects that didn’t hit their funding caps. Cargo-cult investors that are just looking to flip tokens therefore make a zero or negative ROI on these token sales. This is a negative feedback: the average price gap (and with it the incentive to cargo-cult) decreases. Fewer cargo-cult investors and more scam sales means fewer sales hit their funding caps, which means these tokens experience no price gap, which leads to still fewer cargo-cult investors, and so on, until the market isn’t totally insane anymore. In other words, my hypothesis is that this is a self-correcting problem because of built-in negative feedback decreasing the price gap.

That said, I don’t have a good sense of how long the market will take to actually correct itself. If you wanted to know that, you could crunch some numbers and measure the average the price gap (across all token sales and across only scam token sales) over time. As the price gap shrinks, the market’s stupidity should shrink along with it.

Who is Blockchain?

Two weeks ago I barely knew what Ethereum was. I knew that it was different from Bitcoin and there were a ton of companies doing ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) or now known as TGEs (Token Generation Events). I remember bursting into one of our blockchain meetings within our company asking:

Where is this money coming from?
How much is Ether (ETH)?
Is this a bubble?

The answers I got were, well… there are a bunch of people writing whitepapers and then asking people for money so they can build the future. I replied, WTF so they don’t even have a product?

Nope…

Just a bunch of idealist who have this philosophical view of what the future should be. By selling their tokens/coins they will be able fund their projects.

What’s the difference between this and setting up a table outside of Wal-Mart selling Girl Guide Cookies?

  1. You can’t eat these tokens/coins
  2. There is a limited amount of tokens/coins available
  3. Each token/coin cannot be copied or reproduced

I’ll let that sink in a bit... you know the money you have in your pocket, that was printed from a machine owned by the government. If they need more they can print more (not a good idea but it’s possible).

A token/coin generated on a blockchain has a finite amount and once it’s out, it’s really out. Each of these tokens have a certain value associated with it and that is determined by the market and how it’s useful beyond storing monetary value.

Okay so now you kind of understand what a token/coin is, now you need to understand how it’s finite, immutable, and fully secure.

Isn’t tokens/coins just PayPal money that can be spent on Amazon?

No…

What makes these tokens/coins have these special powers . is something called the blockchain.

Here is my simple explanation of what blockchain is:

Imagine everyone in the company, restaurant, room had a piece of paper in their pocket. On this piece of paper every exchange or transaction is recorded. So… if Bob gave Angela an apple for lunch everyone would pull out this piece of paper and write that down.

Now what does this look like presently? Bob gives Angela and apple and Steve writes it down in his book. Nicole gives Alex a banana and Steve will write it down in his book.

Do you see the difference between the two? One is decentralize and one is centralize.

In this metaphor, the paper is a computer. Each computer will download a copy of the ledger and will update every 10 seconds with all the new transactions. That means the first block of transactions aka the ‘Genesis block’ for Bitcoin is still around 9 years after and will be forever. Can you say the same about your Visa statements or paper receipts?

Blocks of transactions in a chain:
[BLOCK 1] → [BLOCK 2] → [BLOCK 3]

So let’s say you want to hack a blockchain and steal a butt loads of money. The only way you can do this is by taking control of 51% of all the computers. You can do this by unleashing a meteor storm over North America taking down most of the computers and all the internet towers. Alternatively, you can try to hack into millions of computers one-by-one so trying to control 51% that have a copy of the ledger.

In short, you can’t (although quantum computers seem to be able to do this black magic).

However one caveat… there has been hacks but not on a blockchain but in the exchanges (where people trade coins). Most of these hacks are due to human error, this is the same with anything. If you leave your bank accounts password on a piece of paper in a coffee shop, don’t be surprised if millions of dollars are gone the next day.

Where is this money coming from?

People who mined Bitcoin or bought it when it was just a few cents are now converting their coins into different tokens. In short, they are investing their new riches in other cryptocurrencies (ETH, NEO, BAT, LTC, etc). More people are pooling in more money increasing the market cap to $170 billion (that’s 21% of Apple). Everyday there are new platforms being built to help you convert your hard earned dollars into sweet sweet cryptocurrencies.

How much is Ether (ETH)?

Right now it’s $309.35 if you had bought it March of this year it would’ve cost $15.76. Now one thing to note is that this market is extremely volatile, a lot of these tokens are scams and are worth nothing. There’s a ton of speculation and people hopping on the train telling people that cryptocurrencies are a gold standard. This is a lie. What makes a token valuable is the ability to develop a community and a platform for others to build on top of it (at least in the perspective of Ethereum and the likes).

Is this is a bubble?

It is unfortunately. There are a ton of uneducated people who are throwing money at fake ICOs. This is great for the time-being but like the dot com bust a lot of these whitepapers promise the future but have no idea how to build it. What happens when people give these scammers millions of dollars expecting a huge return on their investment? Well… I feel sorry for you. There is a high chance that you might lose it all. So why is this a good thing at all? Because from the dot com bust came companies like Amazon, Ebay, Paypal, Google, and every big tech company that you know of now. History will likely repeat itself and from the ashes of dogecoin or jesuscoin there will be a handful of next generation companies.

ICO, Banking, Energy, Healthcare, Retail and E-Gov as the Blockchain Trendiest Areas to be Discussed at Blockchain Conference Abu Dhabi

Source

The blockchain industry has been developing more rapidly than the boldest forecasts predicted. Having become an integral part of the financial and banking spheres, it has already occupied its niche in medicine, insurance, document circulation, energy, retail and other economic spheres. Today, the blockchain is blooming. However, it is worth knowing what we may expect from the technology in the next 6-9 months.

On December 7, 2017, Abu Dhabi will host for the second time the main blockchain conference of the MENA region – Blockchain Conference Abu Dhabi (BConference), which will bring together representatives of the blockchain industry from around the world to talk about their successful experience of using the technology in the most relevant areas for the region.

The key topics of the BConference Abu Dhabi 2017 include:

1. The most innovative technology of our time: Up-to-date information on the crypto-currencies and blockchain

The crypto-currency market capitalization has approached the $ 143 trillion mark in 2017. Governments, investors and business are actively developing plans on using the blockchain to enter the list of the most technologically advanced countries in the world. For example, in October 2016, the authorities of the largest city in the UAE, Dubai, announced the launch of a blockchain strategy to become the first city operating on the blockchain technology by 2020.

One of the BConference panel will be devoted to the preliminary issues on the crypto-currency and blockchain market review, the possibilities of their use within the country and beyond its borders, the analysis of successfully implemented cases. In addition, the participants will get acquainted with the projections and prospects for the blockchain development in the Middle East Region.

2. Financial sector: How may the blockchain improve the financial inter-national payments and banking transactions at all levels?

Researchers from the British HR agency Robert Half Financial Services have found that 52% of the world’s financial services companies plan to implement the blockchain as it facilitates transactions, increases their speed and reduces the costs for the parties. According to the study of the TABB group, the blockchain will enter the daily life of all financial companies by 2026.

3. Logistics: Control over the goods import and export around the globe

 The world commerce volume, excluding oil, in the emirate of Dubai in the first 2 quarters of 2017 has amounted to approximately $ 259 billion, which makes it a major trade hub connecting the markets of Asia, Africa and Europe. The blockchain or the distributed ledger technology will reduce the amount of customs documentation accompanying all movements of goods and will allow their suppliers and recipients to track all processes and the compliance with the terms and conditions of supply contracts in real time. The authorities of the emirate together with IBM and a number of other companies are already working on the creation of such blockchain platform.

4.Energy: Reducing costs in the energy market

The blockchain has already been successfully used to exchange surplus solar energy in the US and Australia, where full-fledged virtual exchanges have been created for this purpose. In the experts’ opinion, a decentralized approach in the energy market will make it possible to significantly reduce costs not only by eliminating intermediaries in the energy market but also by using local energy exchange as needed. It is most likely that the blockchain will become a means of updating and improving existing centralized energy systems as well as create a mixed distributed system where both large power plants and micro networks will participate.

5. Healthcare: Modernization of healthcare systems

The decentralized data transmission system has already been actively used for the purpose of technological modernization of the healthcare system. The study of the blockchain technology potential is carried out in terms of its use in the diverse medical administration starting from the basic client data commit process and ending with the monitor of the development and treatment of the patients’ diseases.

6. Investment raising: ICO boom

The initial coin offering (ICO) is challenging some other ways of the fundraising. In 2017, the start-ups have already raised 10 times more funds through the ICO than in 2016. According to a research firm in the crypto-currency field Smith & Crown, in 2017, the blockchain start-ups have raised over $ 1 billion through ICO. The unconventional method of investment generation is almost as efficient as the usual IPO.

The Conference may be of interest to representatives of the banking and financial sectors, managers, and owners of companies in the field of money transfers and exchange operations, energy companies, save-energy companies, retailers, blockchain start-ups as well as representatives of public authorities at all levels.

Chinese Search Giant Baidu Joins Hyperledger Blockchain Consortium

Source

Chinese search engine giant Baidu has become the latest member of the Linux Foundation-led Hyperledger blockchain consortium.

In joining the group – which focuses on developing blockchain technologies for enterprises – Baidu will assist the project’s efforts alongside other member companies including Accenture, IBM, JP Morgan, R3, Cisco and SAP, among others.

Explaining the firm’s reasons for joining Hyperledger in a statement, Baidu vice president Zhang Xuyang cited the belief that blockchain could help “better tailor” its search preferences according to users’ needs.

“Over the past 17 years, we have striven to fulfill our mission by listening carefully to our users,” he added. “We’re thrilled to be part of Hyperledger and look forward to collaborating with other members to drive open blockchain solutions forward.”

Brian Behlendorf, executive director of Hyperledger, said of the new member:

“[Baidu’s] deep understanding in connecting users to information and services will be tremendous experience for us to leverage as we look to expand our reach further in Asia and drive more global production deployments of Hyperledger technology.”

The announcement comes just a week after business network company Tradeshift also joined Hyperledger as a member. Over 160 companies, startups and organizations have now joined the consortium since it launched in 2015.

Why food supply chains need blockchain?

Because TE-FOOD is a business critical application and needs a decentralized back-end for high availability?

Yes.

Or because TE-FOOD is a global system which needs a geo-redundant back-end environment?

Yes, of course.

Or does it need secured data and encryption?

Yes, no question.

Or maybe because it needs digital signature for all transactions registered in the system?

Yes, almost every business critical transactional system needs it.

Does it need safe data storage and exchange?

Yes, it does.

The question is: could all the issues listed above be solved by „old” technology?

Yes, it could.

Then why does TE-FOOD need blockchain? What are the reasons to use it?

Because the data provided by the registered participants must be unmodifiable. Due to the significant distrust and suspiciousness among consumers, supply chain companies, and authorities, caused by several food frauds and corruption, logististical and food safety data which can be altered can’t provide credibility.

Because the data in the system is a common property of all participants, farmers, wholesalers, food producers, retailers as well. It must be stored in a common, distributed ledger to provide transparency.

Because the food safety related data all over the world is a property of all us and data accessibilty must be public and democratic.

Because the economic inequality is one of the largest social problems and we need a technology which helps to create a fair access to data, know-how, and income.

Because corruption is a global economic problem, and the food sector in emerging countries is one of the most affected sectors. Meanwhile, one in ten people will be ill from foodborn diseases, causing the death of 400,000 people each year. For the larger part of the world’s population in developing countries, deadly foodborn diseases are a real threat. Incorruptible food history information leads to transparent food supply chains, which can make a difference in public health, and literally save lives.

These are the reasons why we need an authority, which controls everything. And our authority is the technology, called blockchain.

TE-FOOD is going to implement blockchain, and tokenize its operation. ICO is planned for November, 2017.

Left to right: Vitaly Gumirov (Miniapps.pro CEO), Kirill Pyrev (CEO BotGaming), Dmitry Khan (Miniapps.pro Advisor), Eyal Hertzog (Product Architect, Bancor), Sefi Golan (CEO Blockchain IL).

Miniapps.pro has joined the Bancor Network™ and will set up a Bancor Protocol™ compliant Token Relay™ with the goal of driving liquidity and creating a safer, more stable exchange mechanism for MAT token holders.

By creating a MAT/BNT Token Relay™, Miniapps.pro token (MAT) holders will be able to easily convert MAT for ETH, BNT, or any other token in the network. Anyone will be able to utilize this service on the Miniapps.pro platform or the Bancor app, providing additional mechanisms by which to easily purchase and sell MAT for ETH and BNT.

Miniapps.pro will deposit equal values of MAT and BNT tokens into a new “Smart Token™” called the MATBNT Token Relay™, via the Bancor smart contracts. To learn more about Smart Tokens™, read the Bancor Protocol™ Whitepaper.

The MATBNT token is expected to activate in the weeks following the closing date of the upcoming MAT Token Sale, scheduled for December 19 2017, 00:00 UTC.

Providing liquidity by means of a smart contract is a major advantage for Miniapps.pro participants — enabling them to convert tokens without counterparty risks associated with centralized models.

MiniApps.pro (http://miniapps.pro) is a global blockchain-powered marketplace of chatbots and a new generation AI chatbot platform. The product makes Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Blockchain technologies available to a broad market of micro, small and medium enterprises around the world.

Miniapps.pro launched the crowdsale of its MAT tokens (http://tokens.miniapps.pro) which allow both chatbot and cryptocurrency communities to become part of this new initiative. A total amount of 20 mln MAT will be generated, with a soft cap of 5 million USD. During the crowdsale, 10 mln MAT will be offered to participants at the price of 0.01 ETH. While the platform is already mature, collected contributions will be primarily targeted at scaling and the development of a rich partner network to fuel the ecosystem.

Multi-Cryptocurrency Software Terminal Gets Alpha Launch

Source

October 17, 2017 : Pioneering payment platform, CopPay, has launched an alpha version of its multi-cryptocurrency software terminal; and is inviting anyone interested – merchants, retailers, and crypto enthusiasts – to sign up for free. Alpha-version is available in the web-interface.

By doing so, users can start accepting a number of listed cryptocurrencies as a form of payment; fee-free. They can then either secure their cryptocurrency in a digital wallet or exchange it for fiat currency, before depositing it into their chosen bank account.

CopPay’s multi-cryptocurrency virtual terminals are easy-to-install pieces of software that can be uploaded onto any mobile device (PC, tablet, mobile phone), integrated with Point-of-Sale terminal or incorporated into any website. A user-friendly interface simplifies payment orders, billing, and payment confirmation. And as each terminal operates independently of a payment processor, there are no transaction fees.

CopPay’s eventual goal is to have millions of virtual terminals functioning around the world in on- and offline stores, as CopPay co-founder, Vladimir Serzhanovich explains:

“To make sure everyone has greater access to cryptocurrency – both retailers and consumers – we will offer our virtual terminal free of charge. Great access means greater liquidity.”

A number of CopPay terminals are already in active use, in Belarus and Chile, with business owners from Germany, Mexico and Lithuania joining in coming weeks.

“When the testing period is complete, merchants will be able to simply download the software from CopPay’s cloud storage,” said Timur Kornienko, CopPay’s CTO. “Until then, they can register and try the alpha version at coppay.eu.”

Following the company’s Initial Coin Offering (ICO) later this month, Ina Samovich, CopPay’s CEO, is confident interest in transactional software, and cryptocurrencies in general, will continue to grow.

“We’ve just included the cryptocurrency of social media network Steemit and we’re working closely with a number of other token issuers,” she said. “Cryptocurrencies continue to rise in value: as evidenced by the Ethereum boost ahead of the recent hard fork. It’s only a matter of time before crypto- transactions become mainstream.”

CopPay’s ICO runs from October 30 to November 30.

“We welcome our community to take part in alpha testing of our platform. It’s available at https://coppay.eu. From now every merchant from European Union can start cryptofying his business using CopPay terminal,” says Vladimir Serzhanovich.

About CopPay

CopPay aims to make it easier for everyone to use cryptocurrencies – like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash and Litecoin – using point-of-sale software terminals that can accept any currently listed cryptocurrency, and exchange them for fiat currencies: in real time, without transaction fees.

DASH/USD and LTC/USD Technical Analysis October 19th, 2017

Source

[embedded content]

DASH/USD

DASH fell significantly during the day on Wednesday, reaching down towards the $282.50 level. We did bounce slightly towards the end of the day but we are already starting to continue the downward pressure. Because of this, DASH looks likely to continue the downward move, perhaps reaching to the $280 level next, where we could see bits of support there as well. Rallies of this point should be thought of as selling opportunities, at least until we break above the $300 handle.

LTC/USD

Litecoin fell slightly during the day, reaching towards the $55 level. This is a very gentle downtrend though, and I believe it’s only a matter of time before the buyers return. I’m waiting to see stability or at least an impulsive candle to start buying, and I suspect that somewhere between the $55 and the $50 levels we should find it.

Thanks for watching, be back tomorrow

Vertcoin Development Update October 18, 2017

Announcements & Updates

Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue support is here!

It’s official, you can now secure your Vertcoin on your Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue! Download the latest update from the Ledger Manager or buy your Ledger from the official site today!

Vertcoin Electrum TOR Wallet is almost here.

Our Electrum TOR Wallet is almost here. We’re making last minute changes to address compatibility bug with the recently released Ledger Nano S & Ledger Blue Support.

What is the Electrum TOR Wallet?

The TOR wallet is a modified version of our Electrum Wallet, designed to only sync over a TOR connection. To use the wallet you must first download and run the TOR browser. Once TOR browser is running, launch the TOR wallet and it will connect over TOR via proxy (localhost: 5190) You now can enjoy IP privacy when sending and receiving transactions.

Vertcoin and Litecoin team up to perform an Atomic Swap

Last month we teamed up with Charlie Lee to perform an on-chain Atomic Swap with VTC and LTC. The on chain swap was performed using Decred’s AtomicSwap Utility. Vertcoin support was officially added to the tool recently. While the capability to do on-chain swaps have been around for a while, this swap was significant as sets a precedent and example of coin communities working together to advance technology. We expect this to the first of many swaps to come.

We’re now on Discord

The Vertcoin community has moved to Discord from Slack due to the phishing and spam attacks that have plagued crypto slack teams for the last few months. We made the decision to migrate our community. If you were signed up for our slack team and haven't created your Discord account. Use this link to join us: https://discord.gg/Yb6EHNy

Vertcoin Trader — Our new Vertcoin Trading Community

reddit.com/r/rvertcointrader

Vertcoin Traders! We have a new community on Reddit, just for you. Introducing r/VertcoinTrader, the first online community dedicated to Vertcoin trading discussion. Join the conversation at reddit.com/r/VertcoinTrader toady!

What’s new

New Wallet Update

As we’ve mentioned in our previous update, there’s a new wallet under development. The wallet should be compatible with Desktop, Web and Mobile and you can run it in both full blockchain mode (where you download and verify the blockchain locally), or run it as SPV wallet. On top of that, the goal is to seamlessly integrate Lightning Network into this wallet.

The development team is currently working on the fundamentals of the SPV wallet, building a blockchain indexer from the ground up that is fully compatible with segwit and the new bech32 address formats. We’re also working with the team behind LIT (implementing the Lightning Network) to connect to Vertcoin using this new indexer middleware. This will mean LIT doesn’t have to be connected to a full node, will have instant sync and run on mobile devices.

This technical foundation is being worked on while we’re getting the designs ready for our new wallet. The design briefing for this is ready and will be shared with a new group of designers in the coming weeks, after which we hope to finalize the design before the next development update. Once the design is ready, we’re going to start implementing the wallet in short iterative cycles, where we strive to have a usable end product after each (two week) cycle. We want to share these work-in-progress with the community to allow for a short feedback loop and transparency in our progress. We’ll be sure to reach out to the community once we’re looking for feedback. Not a closed beta group, but everyone’s invited.

Better, Faster, Stronger

Working on a CI (continuous integration) build server for all Vertcoin projects e.g. Core, Electrum, p2pool, vertminer, lit, OCM and our new wallet/indexer. It will automatically pull commits from GitHub and build binaries for each platform we target, as well as run unit tests. We hope this will accelerate the rate at which the developers can release software updates while maintaining strong QA.

Quantstamp: Making Ethereum Secure from Hackers

As many of you know, Ethereum’s smart contracts allow the creation of decentralised applications, participation in icos, multisignature wallets, etc.
Smart contracts are going to revolutionize the world, but there is a problem. Ethereum uses a new programming language called Solidity which new developers don’t know well. Also if one word is wrong in this language, it could be a fatal smart contract vulnerability which hackers can exploit.
You have also probably heard about the Parity hack. Their multi-signature wallet, which is a smart contract, had one word being set to “public”, instead of “private”. This allowed a hacker to drain 32 million dollars from 3 multi-signature wallets.

Quantstamp is a project that audits smart contracts and finds their vulnerabilities. Quantstamp’s blockchain will be a test network for smartcontracts, before the smart contract gets submitted to the main ethereum network. Quantstamp have developed their automatic software for testing smart contracts, thus removing possible human errors. Also people who find vulnerabilities will be rewarded for doing so. Participants in icos and projects will be assured of a smart contract’s safety when they see the checkmark ‘verified by Quantstamp’.

Quantstamp’s team members have studied int Stanford, Harvard and MIT. The team also has impressive work experience in Google, Amazon, Microsoft and even the Canadian Department of National Defense. Quantstamp’s main engineering advisor Evan Cheng has worked in Facebook and Apple and has over 3000 citations on his research. With experience like this, the team can be trusted to execute their idea.

Another thing to consider is the social presence the project is gathering. With thousand of users joining on Telegram each day, the project has gathered massive attention. Overall the conclusion is great idea, great team, massive hype. This project is good for holding long term and for flipping.

TOKEN DESCRIPTION

Markets and Value

SilentNotary is a global notary service, which will be used by customers in the b2b and b2c markets.

Sufficient tokens must be available to address these volume markets as a single transaction is less than $ 1,00.

So, due to the specifics of the business, many cheap tokens must be issued.

It’s easy to understand by analogy — it is not convenient to use a 100 dollar note for a small purchase like purchasing a postage stamp.

The price for 1 SNTR token is 0.0000002 ETH.

In order not to get confused in figures;

-> 1 million SNTR tokens are equal to 0.2 ETH.

-> 1 ETH equals 5 million SNTR tokens.

Tokens Supply and Distribution

The general distribution of tokens is as follows:

ICO Phases

The SNTR tokens will be available for purchasing during different rounds. The number of rounds depend on the market conditions and the marketing strategy.

Token’s Function

The SNTR token is an application token. It is required to access the service — to write hash code in the blockchain.

SNTR tokens do not guarantee any income and, in accordance with the Howey test, it is not a security token.

All tokens received as payment are deposited with a smart contract and are withdrawn from circulation. The return of tokens into the market is possible only if these actions are performed in the interests of all token owners.

The cost of implementing a smart contract for its function is described in detail in our whitepaper.

Minimum Contribution

The minimum contribution for participating is set for 0.1 ETH

ETH Wallet

You should not use an Ethereum wallet from exchanges like Bittrex, Poloniex or others. Your tokens can be lost and doing so is at your own risk. We recommend you to use MyEtherWallet at https://myetherwallet.com;

REX 12 Month Roadmap

Hello REX Community,

Since the token sale, we have been expanding the team, attending real estate industry and blockchain conferences, meeting with potential partners and testing the RexIndexer.

We want to take this opportunity to update the community on our 12 month roadmap:

Team

Stephen King: CEO

Russell McLernon: CTO

Alex Jacoby: Head of Operations

Brock Haugen: Senior JavaScript Developer

Piyush Shrivastava: Senior Solidity Developer

Duke Long: Head of Strategic Partnerships

Ryan Song: Community Liaison

Guido Smidt: EMEA Operations

We are a global company, headquartered in Switzerland, with team members in the United States, Australia, Switzerland and India. We are excited to announce in addition to Zug, we just opened a second office in New York City!

Operations

We hold two team calls a week:

Every Wednesday morning at 11:00am UTC we discuss development milestones (short and long term), business operations, marketing, upcoming conferences, and community development. The call organizes the team and keeps everyone accountable for their portion of the project.

The second call is held Mondays at 11:00am UTC. This call is dedicated to the development roadmap. We are currently focused on the Alpha and Beta releases. We discuss architecture, features, bugs and scaling — boiling them down a to their lowest common denominator.

Throughout these phases, we intend to release two blog posts a month. One of these posts will focus on development updates from Monday’s scrum.

Next 12 months

REX’s 12 month roadmap is broken up into two phases:

Phase I: Alpha Release and Partner Pilot
Phase II: Beta

The Vision:

We are building two products. The first is the RexIndexer which is the decentralized, shared database. The second is the application layer that will sit on top the of the RexIndexer. The application provides a means for users to interact with the RexIndexer.

What is built/tested:

The RexIndexer is fully built and operable. We have been testing it regularly and fixing bugs as adjustments are made to the application’s UI. Brock has completed approximately 75% of all frontend/backend connections in preparation for REX’s Partner Pilot. We have the upload/edit listing functionality built and will begin testing both features in the coming weeks. Russell and Piyush are reworking the Listing Rewards Contract to include a newly designed Rating System.

We are also in the process of upgrading REX’s Spam Feed. Beyond our own default processes, users can vote to approve/disapprove spam. This will include a number of other functionalities/incentive programs we are excited to announce, including new types of curation feeds.

Phase I: Alpha Release and Partner Pilot

In this phase, we are partnering with 2–4 firms and syndicating their listing data via the RexIndexer.

The goal is to test the RexIndexer’s functionality and stability under heavier loads. It will also provide participants the opportunity to learn REX’s onboarding processes and provide the development team with feedback. The Pilot will last approximately three months. We have three proposals out and plan to announce details once all terms have been agreed upon.

Once the initial data pushes are tested and automated, REX will open the application layer to users outside the Pilot.

Phase II: Beta Rollout

REX Beta will consist of a six-feature release:

1. REX User Ratings

REX will deploy our rating-based trust system. Ratings will establish user-credibility benchmarks that will be used throughout REX’s ecosystem.

2. REX Spam Feed

REX’s Spam Feed will be deployed. Spam will be handled via a combination of the User Rating System and community curation. Details on our Spam architecture will be released in the coming months.

3. REX 90-day Cliff

REX will automatically drop idle listings after a 90 day period. Idle listings will include anything that have not been updated (via a transaction) for 90 days.

4. Individual User Sign-up

The community will be able to sign up through the application layer.

5. Non-Crypto Subscriptions

REX subscription model will be introduced. To help with user onboarding through the application layer, we’ve designed a non-crypto subscription model. Funds collected through the subscription model will be used to automate transaction costs so the user does not need to to obtain ETH in order to cover gas. Details on the subscription model will be explained in a separate post.

6. Curation Feeds

Members will be able to create custom feeds and earn listings rewards.

This is the moment when new digital real estate markets will emerge!

REX Alpha and Beta is 9–12 months in duration. We will focus on a limited number of markets. This will help the team optimize resources, releases and bug fixes before we expand into new territory.

Last, we continue to work to get REX listed on the major exchanges. Please understand, the exchanges are faced with a multitude of new onboarding processes, an increase in listing requests and the migration of tokens moving from Chinese exchanges. This is causing major delays, but we are following all necessary steps and continue to communicate what is requested of us.

As always, thank you for your continued enthusiasm and support.
