CryptoFinancing: Europe’s First Token Sale and ICO Conference and Exhibition to Kick Off in London on July 7, 2017

Bitcoin Press Release: Europe’s first ever token sale and ICO exhibition, CryptoFinancing to be held at the luxurious Level 39 Venue in Canary Wharf, London on July 7, 2017.

July 3, 2017, London, UK – CryptoFinancing, Europe’s first ever conference and exhibition on cryptocurrency ICOs, token sales and crowdfunding in the blockchain community, is scheduled to take place on July 7, 2017, at the spectacular Level 39 venue at One Canada Square, Canary Wharf in London. The inaugural event will witness about 25 sponsors, exhibitors and media partners conduct talks on various aspects of ICO’s and token sales to a live audience.

The first-of-its-kind event will also include debates on the nascent industry’s effect on blockchain startups, venture capital, and regulatory environments. In addition, the event will also include detailed seminars on current and previous ICO projects, their structure, methodology, and design. The CryptoFinancing event will be an incredible opportunity for all interested parties to witness some of the leading players in the space discuss how “tokenomics” has overtaken venture capital as the primary financial driver of innovation, for blockchain projects in 2017.

For Startups and Entrepreneurs

The event will also touch upon the different ways blockchain startups can be developed and how they can tap into various funding opportunities. The CryptoFinancing event will be a great learning experience to those planning to start their own company in the cryptocurrency segment. The event talks will also help individuals understand how to open source all their software, structure their company as a non-profit foundation, bypass the VC route, design their own currency while assigning a value and selling it in the process.

The first-time event will run from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM at the Level 39 venue at One Canada Square, Canary Wharf in London. Further specifics regarding the events schedule can be found on the CryptoFinancing website’s events page.

For Investors

The ICOs and crowdsales have on multiple occasions proven themselves to be far more efficient in raising funds than the usual VC route. A phenomenon born from the Bitcoin community is severely disrupting some parts of the venture capital industry. There are recent signs that the venture capital industry is beginning to look at advantages and disadvantages of ICOs seriously, and their potential to threaten their own business model.

This new fundraising phenomenon is fueled by a synergistic convergence of blockchain technology, new wealth, smart entrepreneurs and crypto-investors’ backing. Unlike traditional venture capital investment, ICO’s are something that appeals to not only the savvy investor but also the Crypto-enthusiast. Blockchain startups are also buoyed by the tokenization of their brand, the significant ICO’s bonus token rates and the general ease of the investment procedure.

ICO investors are also offered the freedom to convert tokens to fiat currency in the early stage, through Bitcoin or Ether. The evolution, success, and popularity of recent ICOs like that of Bancor and Status.im have started to interest venture capitalists, who until recently were unconvinced about investing in crowdsales.

The year 2017 has so far not only seen cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum achieve huge gains but also emerging cryptocurrencies born from ICOs. Liquidity is the other main reason venture capitalists are interested. Rather than tying up vast amounts of funds in a startup or a Unicorn and waiting for the long play, like an IPO or acquisition, VCs can acquire gains far quicker in ICOs and pull out profits with ease.

For Governments and Regulators

At the moment ICO’s are the Wild West of financing, they continue to remain in a gray area as the SEC in the United States, and many other regulatory bodies continue to investigate. The prolonged regulatory limbo in the industry is, in-par, due to the to the lack of equity offered by most ICO’s and blockchain startups. Therefore, they fall outside of traditional legal frameworks, in terms of securities.

ICOs do offer discounts on cryptocurrency tokens before they hit exchanges after the ICO, and therefore do not fit into the current definition of security.

Besides, they are considered global instruments, not national ones and they are funded using Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies, which are not controlled by any central authority or bank. Individuals are therefore free to invest in these projects pseudo-anonymously.

Global Guest Speakers in Attendance

Speaking at the conference and exhibition will be a large number of industry leaders, including, John Clippinger – CEO ID3 / MIT Media Lab (USA); Ryan Zurrer – General Partner Polychain Capital (Brazil); Vinay Gupta – Founder Hexayurt Capital (UK); Jane Zhang – CEO Shellpay (China); Ransu Salovaara – CEO TokenMarket (Gibraltar); Michael Terpin – CEO Transform Group (Puerto Rico); Jake Vartanian – Partner, Cryptoassets Design Group, Director Cryptodex (USA); Eddy Travia – CEO Coinsillium (Hong Kong); Richard Kastelein – Publisher Blockchain News, Partner Cryptoasset Design Group (Netherlands); Dan Larrimer – Founder EOS (USA); Dana Coe – Founder Cryptocrest / Aureus (Malaysia); William Chun – Doublechain / Hyundai (South Korea) and more.

Mining Comes Back to Germany, but all the Good Graphic Cards are Sold out

by writer
Mining Comes Back to Germany, but all the Good Graphic Cards are Sold out

Surprisingly mining is seeing a revival in Germany after it was declared dead due to high energy prices. The result is that most hardware merchants run out of suitable GPUs – like all over the world. There seems to be just not enough equipment to satisfy miner’s demand.

For many years, everybody was sure that in Germany mining was more or less dead. Due to the energy prices, which are among the highest in the world, it was no longer profitable. If people still mined here, they did it by because they get cheap energy.

However, today mining seems to have a revival in Germany. In the most important German forum for virtual currencies, coinforum.de, a lot of threads about mining emerged last weeks. Usually, people ask which software to use for mining, which graphic cards are best, and how to build a so-called “rig,” a mining-system with several GPU (graphic cards).

Mining is back. Chris of Bitcoin-Live, a long-term German miner, jokes that if the trend holds in Germany will soon replace China as the world’s leading mining place. But only a few miners use Asics to search for Bitcoins. Most use instead graphic cards to find Ether or Monero, the two biggest asic-resistant coins.

One reason for the unexpected comeback of mining might be that it is no longer recognized as just an obscure use of hardware, but more and more as something common. GPU mining has become regularly subject of reports of popular magazines like PC Magazine or PC Games, and the retail merchant Caseking promotes some of its products with the note that it can be perfectly used for mining.

The most important reason, however, is that mining has simply become profitable again.

Yes, you will make profits. At least for now.

It’s not rocket science to calculate the profitability of mining. On one side, you have the costs of your rig and the energy. On the other, you have the revenue.

Chris from Bitcoin-Live demonstrates with a simple example that mining Ethereum can be profitable. A rig for the price of €800 produces 45 megahash in a second and eats 350 Watts. With a price of 29 cents ($0.33) for a kilowatthour, the rig costs €2.44 ($2.79) a day but creates Ether worth €6.35 ($7.25). After running nearly seven months, the rig is paid off. Then it makes a daily profit until it is broken.

This calculation gets even better if you obtain your energy cheaper, be it by generating if by yourself, be it by getting industry rates. However, you need to take into account that the hash rate, especially of Ethereum, increases rapidly.

Mining is a zero sum game. The individual revenue decreases when more people participate. Therefore in the long run mining will always be a business of marginal costs; it will only be profitable when you push the expenses for hardware and energy down to the lowest level possible. This is why hobby mining is doomed to die at places with high energy prices, like Germany, and migrate to locations with low energy prices. This process could be perfectly observed in Bitcoin mining.

So – why is it different this time? Why is Germany mining again, despite the bad conditions? We will find the answer to this question in an astounding observation.

There are just not Enough Graphic Cards in the World

Usually, the difficulty of mining adjusts to the price. If the price of a cryptocurrency increases, more people mine it. So the hash rate increases, and with it the difficulty of mining. The system will always find a balance which reduces the profitability of mining to a very low margin.

Currently, this balance, however, seems lost. Let us look at Ethereum. Since mid-February the price of one ether increased from $18 to just above $400 at peak. It multiplied by a factor greater than 20.Now we look at the difficulty. It also increased, but only from 120 to 900, which is by a factor of 7.5. The values do slightly vary if you change the observation time – but there is no way around the recognition that the difficulty does not catch up with the price.

The astonishing conclusion must be; there are not enough graphic cards in the world to adjust mining difficulty to the price. A look at the availability of the cards most popular for mining confirms this.

Bitcoin-Live maintains a list with the graphic cards best suited for mining. For a long time, these have mostly been cards from the AMD Radeon series, like the RX 580 and 480. These models have evolved to the Yetis of the computer hardware: Everybody assumes they exist, but nobody has seen them. If you browse Amazon and the common German shops for computers in Germany, you will find that these cards are sold out nearly everywhere. Most shops do not even list a date when they will be able again to ship it.

A little better are the perspectives if you look on cards from Nvidia. For a long time Nvidia’s products have been unsuitable for mining, but since the GTX 1060 series Nvidia caught up with AMD. According to rumors, the company took mining into account when it developed the new series.

Graphic cards, however, are only part of the problem. Chris from Bitcoin-Live explains:

“No matter if you search for a GPU, a power supply unit, a small CPU or a mainboard with four or six PCIe ports – it is bloody hard to find something suitable.”

Especially if you want to create large rigs, you will have massive trouble to find hardware like the rare 1000 Watt power supply units.

Merchants Increase Prices, Gamers get Angry

The large merchants for computer hardware already reacted to the increased demand. Chris tells that “often you can only order two or three graphic cards for each shipping address. The hardware merchants try to protect their ‘normal’ clients.”

The non-mining users of graphic cards, like gamers, have often become angry toward the miners. For example, if you look at the comments on some YouTube videos, you find rough words against them: “So you the asshole that’s buying all the gpus….” or “fuck you dude you are the reason people can’t buy the things for their systems.”

Some merchants did also increase the price for mining hardware. In parts, as Chris says, drastically. “Some go as far that I would call it moon prices or usury. Especially when we talk about power supply units.”

And this is only the situation in Germany. In some other countries, it seems to be even more drastic. For example in Russia. Here mining has become so common, that the local markets have long reached a total lack of graphic cards. Hence more and more Russians living abroad started to participate in the import of graphic cards into Russia, a business which suddenly has become surprisingly profitable. Bitcoin.com reports:

“It has been reported that many Russian miners are able to generate up to twice the average monthly wage offered in the labor market, resulting in a huge glut of demand for mining equipment locally. Local media has reported that the number of Russians engaged in cryptocurrency mining has increased by 500 – 700 percent, rendering many GPU retailers unable to meet demand. With consumers purchasing graphics cards by the hundreds, merchants have responded with price hikes of up to 80 percent.”

Similar reports are available for South Africa, where magazines tell of a shortage of graphic cards suitable for mining. Even in the USA, it is nearly impossible for one Motherboard author to get his hands on good graphic cards to try out Ethereum mining.

The world, it seems, has simply not enough graphic cards to satisfy the demand of all the miners.

Bitcoin Press Release: Digital startup Freedom Currency offers Minutemen Reserve (MMR), the currency of its Freedom.social platform to investors during the ICO, starting June 29, 2017.

June 29, 2017, Denver, Colorado – Denver-based digital solutions platform FreedomCoin Exchange has announced the launch of the Minutemen Reserve (MMR) ICO. The FreedomCoin Exchange crowdsale of Minutemen Reserve starts on June 29, 2017, offering an opportunity for freedom lovers and investors to participate in an aspect of the worldwide Liberty Movement.

The company’s Freedom.social platform offers users an alternative to other social media platforms like Facebook and YouTube. However, unlike these popular social media platforms, Freedom.social has its own monetized infrastructure that enables people to earn Minutemen.

The Freedom.social team has already created a couple of products, of which FreedomTube is one. It is a YouTube-like video sharing platform integrated with Freedom.social. The video platform allows content creators to post videos and earn Minutemen. The online marketplace, FreedomMarket shares similarities with the popular Craigslist where buyers and sellers can interact with each other and conduct transactions using Minutemen Reserve (MMR) currency.

With more than one way to earn Minutemen, the platform incentivizes people to be active on the social media by posting and interacting with other posts, videos, and people on it. The community earns Minutemen by posting, liking, sharing and referring others to the Freedom.social platform. And finally, Minutemen Reserve (MMR) can be bought over the platform by credit card or by exchanging Bitcoin.

Freedom.social is also a platform for independent media and offers free IPTV for media broadcast from satellite, IP camera, PC, DVR or smartphone. The platform also supports free WebRTC to facilitate live interviews combined with screen sharing. The company has partnered with several major YouTube channels and is currently in the process of partnering with hundreds of independent media outlets that are affected by other social media censorship policies. YouTube channels that are being censored and had their revenues destroyed can now earn revenue from a cryptocurrency that is also utilized as money from day one.

The CEO of Freedom Currency Inc., Kent Lewiss describing the platform said,

“Independent media now has a platform to report the truth on what is occurring worldwide and provide a platform to for people worldwide to be free from corporate media propaganda. Qualified independent media outlets can take advantage of the free video conferencing combined with screen sharing to conduct live interviews, then save and post as a video as well as distribute in multiple social media platforms.”

Offering an insight into the upcoming developments, Lewiss adds,

“We are also in the process or rolling out our FreedomMerchant API in which businesses worldwide can plug into their websites and utilize our payment gateway.”

Freedom.social offers a unique opportunity for the people to be part of a platform that befits the definition of a free world while supporting free speech and unhindered access to truthful information. The creators of Freedom.social have made it easier for everyone to participate in the ICO by enabling Visa and MasterCard payments to purchase Minutemen Reserve (MMR). Once the ICO is underway, investors will be able to register themselves on the platform and buy the first 1 million Minutemen at a unit price of $0.25, the platform will release the second batch of 1,000,000 Minutemen priced at $0.35, third batch of 1,000,000 Minutemen at $0.45 and the final batch of Minutemen at $0.55 per unit.

Bitcoin Press Release: Cryptocurrency startup ATB Coin has successfully raised over $14 Million from over 1000 investors as its ICO continues until July 12, 2017.

June 29, 2017, New York – The New York-based cryptocurrency startup, ATB Coin that announced a monthlong ICO on June 12, 2017, has already raised over $14 million from over 1000 investors. With another two weeks to go, the platform offers a unique opportunity for investors to become part of the initiative.

The ATB Coin platform is developed using the world’s most advanced protocols including SegWit, Lightning Network, Smart Contracts, and ATB Offline Codes. It also records Borderless micropayments in as little as microseconds. The cryptocurrency’s capabilities and its future potential has enabled it to raise $12 million within the first fifteen minutes of the ICO.

According to CEO Edward Ng, the company’s technologically revolutionary cryptocurrency has already attracted excited investors from the United States, Canada, and China. Edward also stated that the company is pleased with the current high level of interest and optimism from investors. Edward expects the ICO to continue for the next couple of weeks and meet the estimated target amount of $50 million.

Herbert W. Hoover III, ATB Coin co-founder stated,

“Our team is well-positioned to move forward with our intermediate goal of opening offices across the U.S., Canada, Latin America, and Asia,”

ATB Segregated Witness

The goal of ATB Segregated Witness or ATB SegWit is to optimize the size of transactions allowing it to combine multiple transactions into one block. Traditional bottlenecks like network scalability, block overflow, transaction speed and commission reduction are now revolutionized with SegWit. ATB Coin increases the efficiency of the block itself without increasing the block size.

ATB Offline Codes

ATB Offline Codes promote a business model where users can purchase virtual goods online. It also stimulates good behavior and more productive discussions on online forums and social networks. The possibilities that ATB Offline Codes open are even more prominent in the case of non-profit organizations. The fees are small, and transactions are private and fully transparent.

ATB Lightning Network

ATB Lightning Network is a new protocol that optimizes the block network. The speed of transactions is dramatically increased, and the size of commissions is minimized. Another amazing and very useful feature of ATB Lightning Network is the multi-signature operation mode. The ATB Lightning Network generates two private keys in the “2 out of 2” cryptography scheme. In order to use coins stored at such an address, two signatures are required. This feature is essential for many businesses and the community will find it truly advantageous.

ATB Smart Contracts

ATB Smart Contract is an electronic algorithm that describes a set of conditions, the implementation of which entails real life events known to everyone. Where there used to be accountants and lawyers, today there are vast opportunities to use a Blockchain-based mechanism. This is a very powerful feature indeed capable of evolving many traditional contracts into a cryptographic solution providing users with protection and reliability.

ICO

Crowdfunding of ATB Coin tokens began June 12, 2017, and will continue till July 12, 2017. Potential investors are offered bonuses of up to 10%, which will motivate an investor for an additional capital investment. Altogether, the maximum tokens issued will number 333 million, of which 50 million will be assigned to the Crowdfunding ICO.

The ICO is currently in the third round of bonuses, in which participants are eligible to receive a 3% bonus of ATB Coins. The fourth and final round bonus begins on the 29th of June and finishes on the 12th of July; and entitles participants to a 1% bonus. ATB Coin ICO participants may invest using Bitcoin, Ethereum, ZCASH, and Litecoin.

Venezuela in Crisis: Bitcoin Remains a Haven

by writer
Venezuela in Crisis: Bitcoin Remains a Haven

The inflation rate of the Venezuelan bolivar has increased to triple digits, leading to a financial turmoil which Venezuelans have struggled to cope with over the past two years. As a result, families and households have turned toward bitcoin, a decentralized digital currency, to mitigate the financial damage inflicted by the plummeting value of the Venezuelan bolivar.

In January 2017, Jim Epstein from Reason offered insights into the bitcoin mining ecosystem in Venezuela and the increasing level of bitcoin trading within Venezuelan black markets. Despite it being illegal in the country and the local government’s crackdown on bitcoin miners, young students and freelancers have started to mine bitcoin to secure lifelines for their families.

Alberto, a 23-year-old Venezuelan graduate with a degree in computer science, started mining bitcoin in December of 2016 due to the lack of job opportunities in the nation. The vast majority of available jobs even for fresh graduates with a degree in computer science, for example, paid a maximum rate of $20 per month, which was nowhere enough for Alberto to support his family financially.

Instead, Alberto turned toward bitcoin mining and began to earn over $1,900 on a daily basis by operating a bitcoin mining facility in Venezuela. Through his earnings, Alberto has been ordering foods and necessities through Amazon’s Prime Pantry.

Ryan Taylor, the CEO of Dash Core, the development company behind the seventh largest cryptocurrency Dash, explained in an interview that an increasing number of young and unemployed graduates and professionals have begun to study bitcoin and various ways to receive their earnings through bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Taylor revealed that the demand toward Dash is also on the rise and the level of activity and engagement in their forums, Youtube videos and chat rooms amongst Venezuelan users have increased significantly.

“If you’re going to be in something volatile, you might as well be in something that’s volatile and rising than volatile and falling. We’re seeing huge demand in Venezuela through inquiries in our support line, as more and more people join our forums and chat rooms, even on how-to Youtube videos that have popped up. It’s in these locations where the incentives to go into digital currencies is the strongest. We’re seeing a lot of growth in the region,” said Taylor.

Many users in Venezuela are purchasing bitcoin through three major outlets and trading platforms; the country’s first and largest bitcoin exchange SurBitcoin, LocalBitcoins and black markets.

In June, the weekly LocalBitcoins trading volume in Venezuela doubled since April to $1.3 million, demonstrating an exponential increase in demand. For the week ending June 25, 425 bitcoin were traded on LocalBitcoins; this level has become the new normal since early 2017 as the crisis intensified. Comparing to countries with similar GDP per capita such as Brazil, Thailand, and South Africa, Venezuela’s demand for bitcoin is markedly higher. 

Jorge Farias, the CEO of Venezuelan bitcoin and Dash exchange Cryptobuyer, noted that the company had seen all-time high user growth in the past few months. Farias further emphasized that a large number of investors in Venezuela are using bitcoin to safeguard their savings and use it as a digital currency on a daily basis:

“Venezuelans use these alternatives not only to safeguard their savings, but also to be able to operate in daily business and commerce. An alternative to entrepreneurs and people who lack the means to buy and sell not only merchandise but services, and to send and receive remittances.”

Bitcoin IRA’s accomplishments with leading retirement custodian Kingdom Trust and leading cryptocurrency wallet BitGo™, represent a first for the industry. Together, this partnership creates a secured multi-signature encryption wallet from BitGo™ that enables Kingdom Trust to provide custodial services with a self-directed IRA.

The COO of Bitcoin IRA, Chris Kline, said,

“These are unique set-ups that no other retirement custodian is able to replicate. Our partnership with BitGo and our custom configuration with other partners provides a secure, one-of-a-kind investment opportunity for individuals that can’t be replicated in the marketplace.”

Bitcoin IRA has been featured in leading publications including the Wall Street Journal, QZ.com, Barron’s, Investopedia and popular Bitcoin publishers CoinDesk.com and CoinTelegraph.com.

In one of the articles, Drew Pierson from CoinDesk wrote,

“Cryptocurrency IRAs are no different than IRAs invested in more traditional options like stocks and bonds. The firm Bitcoin IRA is the only option for investors who wish to hold cryptocurrencies in their IRAs directly.”

Recently, Bitcoin IRA also launched Ethereum IRA, a similar investment product for Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency. The company has been evaluating releasing new cryptocurrencies on its proprietary SDIRA platform, along with new features being driven by demand from existing stakeholders and clients.

About Bitcoin IRA

ZENI Group Announces Zennies Ambassador Program: A Global Community Building Initiative

Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain startup ZENI Group announces Zennies Ambassadorship Program as a part of its global community building initiative.

June 26, 2017, Amsterdam. Netherlands – The Dutch digital collective ZENI Group has announced the launch of the Zennies Ambassadorship Program with the intention of creating a global community. Zennies is a decentralized cryptocurrency aimed at changing the perception of how digital tokens can be used by people. It is a totally decentralized, completely independent cryptocurrency with its own blockchain and it acts as the native currency for the arcade gaming platform ZENIgames.

The Zennies Ambassadorship Program, also known as “The Zambassador Program” follows the success of ZENIgames in building a community of dedicated followers through its arcade gaming platform and the launch of Zennies cryptocurrency. The new program will enable the establishment of regional communities through the involvement of the ambassadors who will be responsible for organizing events and other awareness programs at a local level. It will, in turn, result in addition of more immediate users of the Zennies cryptocurrency.

Participants in the Zambassador program are eligible to receive benefits including Zennies subsidies, promotional materials, marketing assistance, sponsorship opportunities and more. Zambassadors operate regionally with the aim to share information about Zennies with communities that will embrace the Zennies movement. They are encouraged to reach out to the MeetUp groups, gaming competitions, hackathons, cosplay communities and others.

By creating exciting and fun uses for Zennies, the creators of the cryptocurrency expect wider adoption by the broader user base. Zennies looks to take advantage of the groundwork laid down by Bitcoin and use the opportunity to let the Zambassadors go out and make the community aware of the cryptocurrency’s potential.

ZENI Group hopes that Zennies will follow Bitcoin’s footsteps and help to advance the mainstream acceptance of cryptocurrencies. Zennies cryptocurrency creates value through building extensions of digital token technology. It offers products and services that are only available only with Zennies, which in turn, increases the interest in the cryptocurrency and the desire among the public to better understand its use in modern society.

ZENI Group believes that the continued usage of Zennies will help increase familiarity and expand communities to find greater long-term utility in cryptocurrency overall.

REX Announces Their New Decentralized Real Estate Platform and Upcoming Token Sale

Bitcoin Press Release: REX, a decentralized global property listing and transaction based platform announce their upcoming token sale for July 2017

June 22, 2017, Princeton, New Jersey – Blockchain-based property listing and transaction platform, REX has announced its upcoming token sale, set for launch the last week in July, 2017. The token sale will allow contributors to participate in the platform that connects vendors, buyers, sellers and agents over a global decentralized network. REX is in the process of building a universal real estate listing database that is open and accessible to all. The platform has a built in incentive system to reward contributors, thereby encouraging the users to create more listings.

Through its platform, REX aims to reinvent an industry that has seen little to no technical innovation in recent years. The open MLS built on Ethereum enables REX to make real estate transactions cheaper and more efficient. The platform’s model offers a new twist to the age-old system, bringing it up to speed with present day technologies.

Most individuals who has ever bought or sold a home would have used a Multiple Listing Service, also known as MLS. These MLS’ originated in the late 1800’s when real estate agents would regularly congregate to exchange information about the properties they were trying to sell. The present-day MLS network includes over 800 regional databases that are accessible mostly to licensed agents and brokers with an active membership. Each regional multiple listing service has its own listings, and agents are required to pay fees to access each individual database.

REX believes that building a multiple listing service on the Ethereum blockchain will offer massive benefits, otherwise not feasible within the traditional systems. By developing a multiple listing service on Ethereum blockchain, REX can create a set of global standards for listings, allowing for enhanced interoperability between applications and participants in the market.

A Real Estate Data Trove

The world’s data is currently dominated by large technology companies like Google and Facebook. The network effects they have managed to create with the scale of their platforms is strengthening their stranglehold on global information. The same trend is visible in the real estate industry, where large MLS’ leave little room for smaller players to operate.

Blockchain technology has the potential to offer much stronger network effects. Token economics give individuals the ability to incentivize contributions to the network and enable the distribution of platforms to the participants who make them tick. Blockchain technology has the potential to open up data for developers, data scientists and give AI the possibility to hack away at this pool of information that is currently over-controlled.

The REX token’s initial purpose will be to incentivize users to upload listings and reduce spam. Anyone can upload a listing to REX and listing rewards are distributed in exchange to verified users. REX will provide Proof of Approvals (PoA) to users submitting listings that are not their own. PoAs will require evidence from the user that the listing broker or landlord has authorized them to create listings on their behalf. This mechanism can build an open database that will power real estate dApps in the future and change the way properties around the world are bought, sold and discovered.

Starting Small with a Big Vision

REX believes that opening their global multiple listing service is the first step in a roadmap that will enable them to revolutionize the industry. It is estimated that MLS plays a significant role in over 90% of all real estate transactions that happen in the United States. REX believes that its initiative will show how the Ethereum blockchain can have a positive effect on the industry.

By supplanting an important group of providers in the industry with new, free, open-source technology, REX offers an opportunity for users to put its database and the Ethereum network to test and experience its advantages first-hand.

With the creation of a blockchain solution for the real estate industry, REX intends to consolidate its position in the segment as the cryptocurrency revolution catches up with the industry, gradually replacing the existing systems with blockchain-based tools. As the shift happens, REX can to execute its long-term vision of reducing costs, improving transparency and increasing the speed at which real estate transactions around the world unfold.

REX Token Sale

The upcoming REX token sale in July 2017 will enable the platform to raise the necessary funds required to build and scale the database. The funding will also help REX introduce transaction phases within the platform. The company intends to release the pre-alpha version of its platform in mid-July 2017, followed by a full-fledged launch in January 2018.
