Esports Community Content Platform Announces Upcoming Token Sale

September 26, 2017, Berlin, Germany – Malta and Berlin-based esports community platform, the-esports.com, is pleased to announce the upcoming token sale for its blockchain service and content portal.

The Ethereum-based token, ERT, is geared towards the esports community and will power their one-stop service platform for game and hardware merchandise, in-game items, licensed betting, and exclusive, physical esports training university.

Speaking about the need for such a service, chief esports officer and co-founder Benjamin Föckersperger says:

“Never has there been a platform where gamers and fans can share, curate and enjoy cool content together, or even participate in and contribute to esports events. There will be a shop for your favourite esports team’s merchandise as well as hardware, chairs, coaching lessons, or betting on your favourite team. You decide which offers you want to participate in and which you don’t like. All our users can participate in creating content for those areas by writing guides or producing videos. They get paid in ERT for their contribution which can be cashed out from ERT to FIAT (i.e. traditional currency) through several exchanges or our site at the current value of ERT for that day and time.”

Esports: An Unprecedented Industry

The platform already has a strong market to build upon. The esports is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, with Slingshot reporting that the 2017 Mid Season Invitational brought in 364 million unique viewers online.

Phillip Geppert, CEO and co-founder of the platform, said these kinds of numbers are almost unheard of:

“Where one single event, the Mid Season Invitational in League of Legends attracted 364 million unique viewers. And this is just one event — there are dozens every year. These numbers are only matched by FIFA World Cup Games and the Super Bowl. Big brands and even well-known sport teams invest  into esports and the younger target group, which is very attractive for  almost every business out there.”

And with an audience like that, the esports betting industry is booming as well.

In 2016, the global volume for betting on esports exceeded 5 billion euros. In fact, the UK gambling authorities published a white paper on esports betting, which showed that 42 percent of the wagers placed on esports events were actually from female customers. This reflects a rare opportunity to create a product for a whole generation — free of the traditional marketing strategies that tend to focus on just one gender or age group.

Educating New Gamers

The platform aims to help both new and existing gamers navigate the various tournaments and their communities. They will also help improve their gameplay, share content with their teams, and prepare for them important tournaments.

Upon reaching the 20 million euro funding milestone in their push for 25 million euros, the company will open a physical esports center in Berlin. Any user may apply online for challenges held at the center, and possibly qualify to become a pro player in one of their CS:GO or LoL teams. They will also hold subscriber-only competitions and raffles for various prizes, including trips to live tournaments and opportunities to play with esports athletes.

The new service is now fully working, boosts competitive exchange rates and already supports 13 cryptocurrencies and 169 trading pairs.

Anyone can instantly exchange multiple cryptocurrencies straight to their wallet. No need for any registration, email or ID: only the crypto address where the exchanged crypto will be received. The exchange is easy to use and so fast because it keeps a reserve of each cryptocurrency supported.

Flyp.me is also announcing the start of its ICO for September, 28, 2017 to fund the decentralization of the exchange, drive its adoption and increase the reserves of each cryptocurrency. The roadmap includes R&D for 2nd layer solutions, the integration of decentralized asset platforms and cryptographic auditing.”

Flyp.me Tokens (FYP) will be created during the Presale and ICO to give token owners several benefits. These include 50% share of the profits generated by the exchange and the ability to propose new features or coin additions, vote for key decisions and audit volumes.

With the goal of rebalancing the power between users of an exchange and the exchange itself, Flyp.me is embracing distributed policy making and the redistribution of the profits of shifting amongst token owners.

Every three months, Flyp.me will distribute 50% of the profits to FYP Token owners in proportion to their ownership of tokens. Following the first two payouts, the timing of the payout will be voted by the FYP Token owners in line with Flyp.me’s commitment to distributed policy-making.

Flyp.me has also launched a permissionless API that allows businesses and developers to make exchanges and accept payments in 13 cryptocurrencies. This will contribute to increase volumes and profits.

Flyp.me welcomes users to try the new exchange and confirms that all the following cyptocurrencies will be accepted in the ICO — BTC, ETH, LTC, DOGE, DASH, FAIR, GAME, DCR, ZEC, SYS, PPC, BLK, and GRC. They can do so on the Flyp.me website.

Flyp.me is the brainchild of the current team at HolyTransaction, the first multi-currency web wallet, one of the first web wallets to support Ethereum and the oldest still active.

FYP Token Tech

FYP Tokens are ERC20-based Ethereum tokens. Each and every FYP Token is divisible, equal to each other and has exactly the same qualities and properties. Following the ICO, no additional FYP Tokens will be created.

Each FYP Token will equally participate in the redistribution of 50% of the profits generated by Flyp.me and its API.

Pre-Sale and ICO

The FYP Tokens are made available in two separate rounds — the pre-sale and the ICO. FYP Token pre-sale and ICO contributors must acknowledge and agree to be bound by the terms. The pre-sale period is now set to end on September 27, 2017, at 15:00 (UTC).

The ICO starts on September 28, 2017, at 15:00 (UTC) and ends at the latest on October 21, 2017, at 15:00 UTC. If the Hard-Cap is reached, the ICO will end 3 (three) hours after the Hard-Cap threshold is reached. The exact time for beginning and closing of the ICO period, as for the time of the countdown closing, will be determined in blocks’ numbers of the Ethereum Blockchain. The exact block number for start and end of the ICO will be communicated before the ICO commences.

About Flyp.me

Flyp.me is the fastest and most private crypto-to-crypto exchange which doesn’t require any registration. It is already live and supports 13 cryptocurrencies.

DARICO, A Cryptocurrency to Address Volatility, Illiquidity and Correlation Issues Plaguing the Cryptocurrency Market

Bitcoin Press Release:  Darico, a unique asset-backed cryptocurrency combines the goodness of the best reserves of both worlds – Bitcoin and Gold.

September 17, 2017, Zug, Switzerland- Darico is an exciting new concept quickly coming to life. The Switzerland based project is working towards becoming the first digital currency to combine the benefits of bitcoin’s growth potential, security and peace of mind offered by gold into a single cryptocurrency. The team, currently in the process of creating an entire “Investment ecosystem” is soon going to launch the crowdsale, offering an opportunity for people to become part of the new financial revolution.

The cryptocurrency Darico stands for “Decentralized, Asset-backed, Return-focused, Investment-grade Coin”. The cryptocurrency is backed by a unique combination of assets to potentially eliminate the volatility, otherwise associated with individual digital currencies like Bitcoin and others. By doing so, the virtual currency not only ensures the best interests of the coin holders, but also attracts more people to adopt Darico, and in turn digital currencies.

The multi-asset backed Darico is backed by a combination of Gold and Bitcoin, alongside Ether which further diversifies the reserves. Bitcoin and Gold reserves make up to 55% and 35% respectively. Bitcoin’s assure growth in value over time is combined with the rock-solid price stability exhibited by gold. A small percentage of Ether reserves ensures that Darico is future-proofed, thanks to the growth potential of Ethereum protocol as it gains wide-spread adoption in the decentralized blockchain solutions segment.

The Founder & CEO of Darico, Mojtaba Asadian said,

“Investors are more sophisticated now. They’re increasingly looking to alternative ways to diversify their portfolios with an aim to generate strong returns while reducing volatility, being backed by physical and digital assets (or bitcoin and gold), darico can address their need.”

The Darico project has received significant attention from the cryptocurrency community since the team started working on it a few months ago. The less than a year project will soon hold a crowdsale, scheduled for Q4 2017. Exact dates for the token sale will be announced soon.

The funds raised during the crowdsale will be utilized to procure assets necessary for building the reserves. The platform has set the maximum cap at 60 million coins for the crowdsale, which can be bought against BTC or ETH payments. Any unsold tokens following the crowdsale will be burnt to conserve the cryptocurrency’s value. Furthermore, an additional 180 million coins (240 million in total) will be distributed in the next 18 years through auto-mining.

The participants in the upcoming crowdsale will be entitled to the Darico Investors’ Genesis Account, allowing them to benefit from the darico coins mined by them. Those interested in participating in the crowdsale can find more information on the Darico website.

Bonpay Makes Adoption of Digital Payments Much Simpler

Bitcoin Press Release: Bonpay, the full-fledged cryptocurrency services company is on a mission to make financing swift, flexible and smooth.

September 21, 2017, London, UK – The cryptocurrency payment solutions company, Bonpay is in the process of making it easier for people to spend cryptocurrencies. The proverb, “spending is easier than earning” may hold good in case of fiat, but it isn’t the same when it comes to spending cryptocurrencies.

The cryptocurrency market has seen a lot of development in the recent days. However, the community is still faced with challenges when it comes to withdrawing and spending the crypto-assets. Even though a bright future is predicted for the likes of Bitcoin and Ethereum, no universal payment solution is supporting these digital currencies at the moment. Bonpay aims to change it, one step at a time.

The growing interest in cryptocurrencies has led to to the appearance of different fund withdrawal methods which included bank transfer, exchange to other e-currencies, or direct Bitcoin payment for goods and services. However, these methods have their own issues as the bank transfer and exchange to other e-currencies come with exorbitant fees and sluggish speeds while there aren’t many merchants who accept direct cryptocurrency payments either online or offline. But as with any other problem, even this one has a solution.

A market analysis indicates two widely used payment options, cash and credit cards. These two payment methods have achieved maximum market penetration. They can be used to pay for almost everything in places ranging from large supermarkets to small shops and even online portals. In cases where the cards are not accepted, people can always pay by cash withdrawn using the card from a nearby ATM.

The increasing adoption of Bitcoin and other altcoins followed by widespread usage of credit and debit cards has led to the creation of cards for Bitcoin withdrawals. The concept was initially implemented by Trailblazers, which came with high fees and poor support that left many people disappointed.

The Bonpay Cryptocurrency Card Solution

Bonpay Card is an ideal option to withdraw funds for cryptocurrency traders, miners, Internet marketers, webmasters, and freelancers. It can be used easily and quickly regardless of geographical and banking boundaries. In addition to these benefits, the Bonpay card also enables entrepreneurs to make payouts to their staff without bearing excess transaction fees, saving both time and money in the process.

Some of the current opportunities offered by Bonpay includes:

– Availability on any device with fully-functioning web-version

– Versatile replenishment options, including Bitcoin, Paypal, and international/local bank transfers

– Option to buy Bitcoin with Bonpay Card and with Paypal

– Possibility to store funds both in the wallet and on card

– Opportunity to order plastic/virtual cards in EUR/USD with additional currencies available in future.

Plastic card will allow ATM withdrawals across the world while the virtual ones reduce the risks associated with online transactions.

Laying Cards on the Table

In the past, multiple players have announced that they will be introducing Bitcoin cards with 0% fees. But to make good of their claims, they are yet to launch these products. Unlike them, Bonpay is laying cards on the table. The Bitcoin Card solution offered by the company is already live and has a defined fee structure in place. Bonpay has a zero-fee structure in place for money transfer within the system, along with a maximum of 1-2% Bitcoin conversion rate and ATM withdrawal limits set up to USD/EUR 60,000 at FX rate tending to 1.9% instead of usual 3% charged by similar services.

The Bonpay team is confident that a larger interested community will be a key factor in the success of its project. Being advanced users of cryptocurrencies, Bonpay team members have concentrated their skills into the product which was launched on the 1st of September. The first 500 subscribers already have an opportunity to order free card, which may warm up a direct interest among users. Subscribers stand to receive a Free Bonpay Card and enjoy all its advantages listed on the website.

Viuly Announces World’s First Decentralized Video Sharing Platform, Pre ICO 10th October 2017

Bitcoin Press Release: Viuly aims to change the multi-billion dollar market of online video through blockchain-based decentralization. Its revolutionary platform will reward authors, users and advertisers alike, while eliminating middlemen and access restrictions.

September 18, 2017 Zug, Switzerland – Multimedia development company Viuly is pleased to announce the world’s first blockchain-based decentralized video sharing platform. Founded by a team with established credentials in corporate management, blockchain business development, marketing, promotional strategy, and more, and backed by a seasoned fintech advisory: Viuly is on a mission to revolutionize the online video industry. To realise this vision, Viuly will launch a crowdsale, kicking off with a pre-ICO on October 10th, 2017. For more information on Viuly’s mission and development roadmap, visit the Viuly website  and read the official Viuly whitepaper here.

Today’s Global Video Sharing Industry

Each day, people worldwide watch hundreds of millions of videos shared on major hosting platforms such as Vimeo and YouTube. YouTube alone has more than 1 billion users – that’s a third of all people online.

It is a consumer-oriented industry that continues to grow, with video now accounting for two-thirds of all Internet traffic according to Cisco*. Research firm Forrester estimated that 1 minute of good video is worth $1.8 million in terms of marketing pull.

Advertising revenue for online video runs into hundreds of billions of dollars. Centralized video sharing platforms keep the lions share, taking from 50% to 60% of ad revenue. Simply put, authors earn a paltry sum for creating videos, while users get nothing.

Viuly’s Solution: Blockchain Based Decentralized Video Sharing

Viuly believes that it is time for a blockchain based, decentralized video sharing economy that rewards all participants. Through Viuly’s platform, authors are paid up to 65% of ad revenue and users are rewarded with 25%.

Viuly is the first video platform in the world to pay users to watch free videos.

Viuly’s blockchain based video sharing platform is fully decentralized and has no single point of failure. The platform is built on the IPFS protocol, which allows storing files in a distributed network without a shared control center. Anyone in the world can use the extra space on their hard disk to store videos uploaded to Viuly and be rewarded VIU tokens for this.

There are up to 4 possible income streams available for video uploaders. Content creators can publish free videos and receive VIU donations, earn 65% from the ad revenues, sell their premium content on a per-view basis, or make their video channel subscription based, where subscribers pay VIU tokens to access the authors videos. Up to 90% can be earned from pay-per-view, subscriptions, and donations.

With Viuly’s accurate, transparent and blockchain auditable viewer statistics, advertisers reduce fraud viewing. This translates to a more efficient marketing campaign.

Viuly users enjoy the freedoms of decentralization – zero censorship, zero content restriction, zero video blocking. If content is flagged as a potential violation of common standards by the community, an alert is sent to moderators, who are randomly selected from among users with the highest ratings on the platform. If a violation is confirmed, the video is deleted and the user rating is downgraded.

Introducing The Viuly (VIU) Token and Crowdsale

VIU tokens are the tool for transferring value between advertisers, content creators, users, and people supporting the network. It is an ERC20 token issued on the Ethereum protocol to enable full transparency of payments, anonymity and decentralization necessary for Viuly’s platform.

VIU’s prospects will be associated with the growth of Viuly’s user base, which will directly influence the turnover and demand for VIU tokens. A marketplace for goods and services on the platform will give intrinsic value to the tokens, as only VIU tokens will be used. As no new VIU tokens will ever be created, a persistent demand for a limited resource should result in a growing value.

Viuly will launch its alpha platform from September 25th where users will be able to test out some of its functions.

Until the 30th of October, new users will get welcome bonuses: 50 VIU for signing up, 100 VIU for uploading their first video, and 50 VIU for referrals who register and confirm their email address.

To continue the development and launch of the world’s first decentralized video sharing platform, Viuly will conduct two crowdsales. 550 million VIUs total will be up for sale at a rate of 2000 VIU per 1 ETH. A maximum of 30 million VIU will be sold with a 40% bonus during a 3-day Pre-ICO beginning on October 10th, 2017. This will be followed by the 10 day public ICO beginning on November 1st 2017, and ending on November 15th 2017.

UTRUST CEO Nuno Correia, and co-founder Filipe Castro, CIO also hosted a live video streaming AMA event on the 15th September. Nuno, Filipe, and Artur the CTO answered many questions from the community. The full recorded live stream can be viewed here.

Last week, UTRUST also announced that a new public ICO date will be shared in early October, with a more equitable public ICO structure.

About UTRUST

UTRUST has currently raised $3.5 Million through private early investors and the sold out pre-ICO, with the public ICO to be announced in early October.

UTRUST is the world’s first cryptocurrency payments platform to implement consumer protections on a mass scale. The company is building a global PayPal–like payments platform with extensive cryptocurrency support.

UTRUST’s end goal is to provide all the benefits of fast, secure, convenient, and inexpensive cryptocurrency transactions, in tandem with the world’s first cryptocurrency payment protections, which consumers need to fully embrace blockchain technology en masse.

With 2.5 billion unbanked people in Emerging Markets yet to benefit from financial inclusion, UTRUST is also planning to build the bridge to enable the unbanked worldwide to access the mainstream global financial system.

UTRUST ICO and Tokens

UTRUST’s public ICO will be set in October. The company will use the collected funds to establish key industry partnerships and to develop the world’s first PayPal-like cryptocurrency payments platform. The ERC20 compatible tokens are created over the Ethereum protocol, and can be used as a means of payment on UTRUST’s payment gateway along with other cryptocurrencies.

UTRUST’s token can be used for making zero fee payments to the thousands of merchants accepting any cryptocurrency via UTRUST, and be traded against other currencies on supported exchange platforms.

UTRUST will allocate a certain portion of the revenues to buyback and destroy the tokens in circulation. Being a deflationary currency by design, the demand for UTRUST tokens will increase with time, which combined with buyback should lead to appreciation in its market value.

ARK to be available on Ledger Hardware Wallet Starting July 28, 2017

Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain platform, ARK partners with Ledger to provide compatible hardware wallet to the community.

July 7, 2017, France – ARK is proud to announce our partnership with Ledger Hardware Wallet. The collaboration for ARK/Ledger integration has been in the works for a while now, and the ARK Crew is very excited to release it finally.

ARK integration into the Ledger Hardware Wallet makes ARK the tenth cryptocurrency to be secured by this fantastic piece of hardware. Ledger provides additional security measures and the ability for users to store their ARK safely, with peace of mind along with other supported major cryptocurrencies.

ARK and Ledger are making two firsts with this addition. ARK is now the first Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) blockchain and the first JavaScript blockchain ever to get native integration into the Ledger Hardware Wallet. There is more to the partnership between ARK and Ledger. The ARK-desktop and ARK-mobile wallets will be compatible with Ledger wallet, and they will be BIP32 compliant.

It means Ledger wallet users will be able to generate HD wallets with extra security without having any single passphrase getting out of the Ledger device. Once full compatibility with the Ledger Hardware wallet is achieved, ARK will also extend Ledger Hardware Wallet support to its Desktop and Mobile wallets, requiring them to sign transactions if the ledger account is synced to the ARK wallets.

Also, any future ARK cloned network, ARK fork, or ARK test-net/dev-net will be compatible with the Ledger soon. Making every ARK cloned chain Ledger compatible. ARK support on Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue is set to go live on July 28, 2017.

What is Ledger?

Ledger is a cryptocurrency hardware wallet for storing cryptographic assets and securing digital payments like Bitcoin, ARK, and other altcoins. It connects to any computer (USB) and embeds a secure OLED display to double-check and confirm each transaction with a single tap on its side buttons.

Ledger Nano S ensures that secrets like private keys are never exposed. The device isolates sensitive operations within a contained state of the art Secure Element which is locked by a PIN code. All transactions in and out of the wallet are tamper proof, and they can be physically verified on the embedded screen with a simple press of a button.

Users can send and receive payments, check accounts and manage multiple addresses for each currency from the same device. Nano S also supports the FIDO® Universal Second Factor standard that simplifies the authentication process on compatible online services such as Gmail, Dashlane, Dropbox or GitHub. The ledger accounts can be backed up on a recovery sheet, making restoration of lost/damaged devices easy with any Ledger device or compatible wallets (BIP39/BIP44).

Security

Based on a dual chip architecture (ST31/STM32, Certification level: CC EAL5+), Ledger Nano S provides unprecedented firmware integrity guaranteed by cryptographic attestation. It can be accessed only after entering a 4-8-digit PIN code, each time it is plugged into a computer. The hardware wallet makes allowance for easy initialization and restoration of configuration within a secure environment. The security features integrated into the wallet are designed to ensure the cryptographic secrets are never exposed to the outside world.

Users’ private keys are never held or known by Ledger or any other third party as they remain hard-locked within the Secure Element. With Ledger Nano S, the wallet remains decentralized, allowing the users to be their own bank.

Limited Edition ARK Nano S

ARK, in association with Ledger, has come up with a Special Limited-Edition ARK branded Nano S hardware wallet. Only 1000 of these devices will ever be manufactured, which gives more the reason for anyone interested in laying their hands upon it to order a piece as soon as they are made available.

The ARK branded Ledger Nano’s release is scheduled for early August 2017. More information about the release and its availability will be provided on the platform’s social media (Twitter/Facebook/Reddit/BitcoinTalk) accounts. Community members can also join the announcement channel on ARK’s Slack account to keep track of the developments.

About ARK

ARK is a decentralized digital asset token based on a much-advanced blockchain technology and is meant for mass consumer adoption. ARK, with its extensive capabilities, incorporates some of the best features like SmartBridge Technology, allowing it to communicate with other blockchains. It uses Encoded Listeners that listens for any communication sent via the ARK SmartBridge vendor fields inserted as small code snippets by participating blockchains. The SmartBridge can be utilized by other coins like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and even SmartBridge Apps.

ARK is the first Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) consensus based cryptotoken, with initial upgrades like HD (Hierarchical Deterministic) Wallets. ARK has made significant improvements to its DPoS algorithm and the Lisk codebase from which it was forked.

The crowdfunding campaign will commence on the 18th of July 2017 and will give investors an opportunity to support the groundbreaking blockchain-based platform that supports streamlined video sharing and comes with an integrated token system.

MIV enables uploaders to reach new users through the platform’s Integrated Ranking System. The platform aims to be as user-friendly as possible, and it has extended full app support for both iOS and Android.

What is MIV?

MIV is the native token of the ‘Make It Viral’ video sharing platform and will be used by users to vote their favorite content and help them to get more visibility. The company has chosen to implement MIV as the means for exchange of value between viewers and uploaders on the platform. Users will be able to receive free MIV daily to help drive the ecosystem.

In addition, MIV will be soon available for trade on various exchanges and Make It Viral intend to later implement an exchange directly on the platform.

Crowdfunding Campaign

The MIV team will run a crowdfunding campaign from the 18th of July 2017 until the end of October. All funds raised from the crowdfunding campaign will be used for developing various aspects of the projects. The company aims to collect a minimum of 60 BTC over the course of the crowdfunding campaign.
