ZebraPay to Support VEROS and Ether Cryptocurrencies Soon

Bitcoin Press Release: The universal self-service solutions provider, ZebraPay extends its support to VEROS and Ether cryptocurrencies.

March 16, 2017, Bucharest, Romania – The leading self-service e-payment solutions provider in Romania, ZebraPay will soon start accepting two more cryptocurrencies. The platform has announced the inclusion of Ether and VEROS (VRS) payment options in its self-service kiosks.

Operational since 2009, ZebraPay has grown to become the largest self-service kiosk network in Romania. The service provider has over 2500 kiosks installed in over 350 localities across the country. The extensive technology development carried out by the company during 2011-2014 has gained ZebraPay the recognition of being the fastest growing Romanian technology enterprise.

ZebraPay’s CEO Adrian Badea explaining the use inclusion of new cryptocurrencies said,

“Innovation is a milestone at ZebraPay, so through this partnership, we increase our cryptocurrencies portfolio to meet the needs of the customers interested in this modern financial area and to increase accessibility to such services.

ZebraPay self-service kiosks currently support payments made using cash, NFC, mobile wallets, and cryptocurrencies. Until recently, Bitcoin was the only cryptocurrency supported by ZebraPay kiosks. However, due to the increasing demand for alternative payment methods, the company is planning to expand its cryptocurrency services and has just signed the agreement with VEROS to start offering VRS cryptocurrency payment option. Soon, customers will be able to purchase VEROS through ZebraPay self-service kiosks.

Only several weeks into it’s infancy, the VEROS cryptocurrency has a long-term mass adoption strategy in place to overcome the competition presented by other well-established options available in the market. As a part of the strategy, VEROS is housing the most popular services into a Crypto-One-Stop-Solution (COSS) platform, set for launch in less than a month’s time. VEROS solves the mass adoption challenge by allowing the user community to control the distribution and value of the digital currency, independent of centralized agglomerates like mining pools. All VEROS transactions are secured with Ethereum smart contracts, governing the validation, distribution, and ownership of the tokens. VEROS has built a strong affiliate network responsible for creating a market comprising of all sorts of projects involving crypto and fiat currencies where VRS is used as a native token.

Second only to Bitcoin, Ether has the largest cryptocurrency market capitalization and will be soon made available for purchase at ZebraPay kiosks. Ether is not only a cryptocurrency but also a value token fueling the Ethereum network. The participants of Ethereum platform (startups, application developers, etc.) pay fees for transaction processing and the computational power consumed for all operations on the network with Ether. Despite such technical use, the Ether tokens can be bought and sold alongside Bitcoin on major exchange platforms.

Each of the three cryptocurrencies (BTC, ETH, and VRS) adopted by ZebraPay have their own niche in the market, creating a diversity that many cryptocurrency users are currently looking for. The VEROS development team considers this move an important step towards the expansion of cryptocurrency market, especially in cryptocurrency friendly Romanian soil.

Starting next week, ZebraPay customers can buy VEROS and Ether at self-service kiosks all over Romania.

Founded in 2009, ZebraPay is a leading provider of self-service e-payment terminals located in over 350 towns across Romania. The ZebraPay terminals are found in major retail chains, universities, shopping centers, markets, gas stations and convenience stores.

The Dash Fork, PIVX Cryptocurrency Brings Private Instant Verified Transactions to the Masses

Bitcoin Press Release: PIVX cryptocurrency, forked from DASH v0.12.0.x core uses custom PoS, changes name from Darknet to enable private, instant and verified transactions.

March 15, 2017 – PIVX (Private Instant Verified Transaction), formerly known as Darknet offers an upgraded DASH v0.12.0.x clean fork based cryptocurrency with custom Proof of Stake (PoS) code to the community. The open source cryptocurrency platform has replaced the previous Proof of Work (PoW) consensus algorithm to bring private, instant and verified transactions to the masses.

Through its latest changes, PIVX has eliminated the dependency on resource intensive hardware for mining, like in the case of other PoW cryptocurrencies. Instead, the community members can earn PIVX by holding on to some tokens in their wallet while keeping it connected to the internet. The platform’s latest PoS 2.0 algorithm allows any device running a PIVX wallet, irrespective of its technical specification or operating system to take part in the staking process and earn rewards.

Being a Dash fork, PIVX utilizes Bitcoin Core by default. It uses the current Bitcoin v0.10.x core in combination with some already committed v0.13.2 updates. Since its launch on January 31, 2016, PIVX has been the only PoS cryptocurrency to be based on Bitcoin Core v0.10.x or above, making it the most up to date and technically advanced PoS cryptocurrencies in the market.

PIVX inherits all the technical features of Dash, including the masternodes, instant transfers, and private transfers. The PIVX team is working on further improving the platform by updating it to v0.12.1.x Dash core with enhanced features like IPv6 support, along with the existing IPv4 and TOR Network support.

The PIVX cryptocurrency network has a block time of 60 seconds with fixed block rewards. The custom seesaw algorithm incorporated in the system dynamically alters the rewards split between a masternode and staking nodes. Detailed information about the seesaw algorithm is available in PIVX’s whitepaper.

The PIVX team is one of the first to explore the implementation of libzerocoin protocol with non-optional minting to the platform. A successful integration of the zerocoin protocol will further enhance the network privacy, making every end-to-end transaction untraceable.

PIVX believes in having an inclusive governance by the community. The team is currently involved in discussions to further improve the existing masternode voting system by including non-masternode PIVX holders in the decision-making process and utilization of its block reward budget. These discussions are held as publicly viewable live meetings for increased transparency continuing until an ideal governance solution is devised and implemented.

With these features, PIVX hopes to revolutionize the world of private cryptocurrency, in terms of monetization and exchange methods.

About PIVX

PIVX is a multifaceted community-centric endeavor in the blockchain tech and cryptocurrency realms. It offers a transactional security and privacy-centric, decentralized open source cryptocurrency for the community.

Internet of Coins Launches Hybrid Asset on Multiple Blockchains

Bitcoin Press Release: Internet of Coins announces the launch of “hybrid asset”, a multi-blockchain token. Crowdsale goes live on March 21, 2017.

March 13, 2017, Netherlands – Internet of Coins, a non-profit cryptocurrency technology development organization has announced the launch of “Hybrid Asset”, an inter-systemic, cross blockchain token. Currently, under development, the asset enables transfer of value between ledger systems without needing any update or adaptation of the existing cryptocurrency source code.

As a part of its initiative, the organization has announced an upcoming Internet of Coins crowdsale on March 21, 2017. The platform has early bird options in place for investors interested in receiving a 5% discount during the crowdsale. They can avail more details about it by contacting the organization on its website.

The Internet of Coins team presented a live demonstration of the transactional operating system and the graphical user interface that powers the novel hybrid asset blockchain technology. The presentation on Bitcoin Wednesday at A-Lab in Amsterdam was well received by the cryptocurrency community and industry peers.

The development team has been working relentlessly on the project codes since the launch of its whitepaper in 2014. They recently announced Coinstorm, the project launch campaign. Through Coinstorm, Internet of Coins is encouraging a revolutionary collaboration among cryptocurrency enthusiasts to decentralize the alternative economy scene further.

The founder of Internet of Coins, Joachim de Koning said,

“Our goal is to create a coherent whole out of the decentralized economy initiatives we see today. There are more than a few decentralized exchange initiatives out there that we are bonding together to form a decentralized financial web.”

Internet of Coins’ hybrid asset functions as a dynamic portfolio, spreading the risk from holding value on a single blockchain to storing it on multiple chains. It diversifies the technical and economic risks over multiple value systems housing the assets. Designed with a strong meta-level approach, the hybrid asset offers safety from cryptocurrency volatility and blockchain failures by providing a new vehicle for value storage.

The co-founder of Internet of Coins, Robert de Groot describing the project’s aim said,

“With this system, we aim to make everyone an exchange, to take away the risks of trusting a centralized third party and to connect alternative economies across geographical borders. Exchanging value should become as easy as swapping files; we aim for Internet of Coins to become the Bittorrent of cryptocurrencies and asset systems.”

The founders of Internet of Coins expect the hybrid asset distribution to lead to an increase in liquidity on decentralized exchanges while ensuring interconnectivity between different cryptocurrency systems with their own values and beliefs about what decentralized value is and how it should work.

About Internet of Coins

Internet of Coins is a not for profit initiative created to maintain decentralization of cryptocurrency infrastructure by allowing cross-compatibility of digital assets between blockchains. The organization aims to enable the free and unlimited exchange of value among blockchain-based systems and other financial systems.

DAO.Casino Announces Blockchain Based Decentralized Ethereum Gambling Ecosystem

Bitcoin Press Release: DAO.Casino’s Ethereum blockchain based platform ensures safe, secure and profitable gaming experience while rewarding active participation.

March 10, 2017 – DAO.Casino’s Ethereum smart contracts based software expresses a practical business logic to support the growth of a fair and sustainable gaming and gambling industry. It offers a unique socio-technical protocol, which creates a fine balance between the platform’s usability and its autonomous economic infrastructure.

DAO.Casino, with its decentralized business model, creates a democratized gambling platform where everyone involved, irrespective of the designation, are recognized and rewarded for their contribution. The platform has tentatively scheduled the release for April 2017.

Be it players, developers or investors, DAO.Casino has a lot of offer to each one of its associates.

Business Model

DAO.Casino’s decentralized business model means that the project’s developers are as much as same as anybody who brings value to their platform. That’s the beauty of the system: it appreciates the participants and rewards them likewise.

DAO.Casino’s code is administered by mathematics — a cryptographically verifiable Ethereum powered code that automatically distributes funds amongst all the participants who bring value: developers, referrers, and random number providers.

Ilya Tarutov, the CEO of DAO.Casino explaining the choice of Ethereum protocol said,

“There are ways of providing a much better experience for the players and the game devs while creating a sustainable business model that scales. Ethereum provides a very useful technology to achieve this.”

For the Players

The existing gaming and gambling infrastructure is hugely rigged, and players have turned out to be the biggest victims of unfair betting outcomes. There is no such thing as a trusted third party as each gaming service, at some point in time manipulates the results to suit their business models. And the saddest part is the inability of players to call/prove the bluff, because the betting outcomes are calculated behind the curtains.

So, the first and the foremost thing DAO.Casino focuses on is usability. With usability, the platform wants to provide a perfect mixture of straightforward user-experience, provable fairness, and higher payouts.

To sum it up, these are some of the benefits users can receive by using DAO.Casino:

  • Straightforward UX
  • Discover unlimited provably fair indie gambling games
  • Choose the most suitable UI
  • Get higher payouts
  • Take part in a potentially largest lottery on Ethereum

For the Game Developers

DAO.Casino wants to eliminate a developer’s need to rely on closed-source gaming markets, where s/he hardly has any rights to monetise their work, raise funds for development or expect to bankroll without paying hefty commissions.

With its focus on offering a sustainable, attack-resistant platform, DAO.Casino offers a safe and thriving environment to developers in which they can build games freely, raise funds and bankroll without needing to rely on centralized models. So, with the platform, developers get to receive:

  • Scalable P2P marketplace
  • P2P referral system support
  • Possibility of raising funds for the bankroll
  • Build own Casino (front-end)
  • Verifiably genuine RNG provided by DAO.Casino
  • Retain the intellectual property

For the Token Holders

DAO.Casino token holders don’t just hold tokens under their mattress. Any member of the DAO.Casino can contribute & get rewarded for their active engagement. They can,

  • Invest token in any game’s bankroll and earn % from the game profits
  • Become a referrer & help players with platform discovery
  • Become providers of random numbers used by games.

DAO.Casino tentative first release is in April 2017.

Project Features

Resilient: Tokens are distributed amongst many contracts.
Fair distribution: Reward system is transparent & automatic (not controlled by a central authority).
Open & Extensible: Anyone can add a game or run their own casino UI.
Sustainable: Maintained by many participants.

Token Features

  • In-game currency – A native token to speed up transactions within the house
  • Random Number – Token holders can become providers of random numbers used by games.
  • Bankroll backing – Token holder can back any game of choice

Coming soon

During the month of March, DAO.Casino will be publishing:

  • A detailed system architecture
  • Token distribution & functionality details
  • Detailed description of RNG
  • Initial Solidity contracts
  • Security audit results

With its ethos and dedication to providing a provably fair, user-friendly experience DAO.Casino looks forward to creating a great future business for players and programmers alike.

About DAO.Casino

DAO.Casino is an open ecosystem for gambling games that doesn’t rely on a trusted third party. Its decentralized governance system built on Ethereum offers rewards to developers, security auditors, and community members for their contribution to the platform where players can discover and play scam-free games with a straightforward user interface.

ARK Mainnet Goes Live on March 21, 2017, Token Distribution to Follow

Bitcoin Press Release: ARK blockchain ecosystem gears up for the mainnet (main blockchain) launch on March 21, 2017.

March 9, 2017, France – The blockchain ecosystem, ARK proudly announces the launch of its mainnet — the ARK blockchain on Tuesday, March 21, 2017. Along with the genesis block, the platform will also generate all the ARK tokens for distribution amongst the Token Exchange Campaign (TEC) participants.

A result of few months of extensive coding and testing, the mainnet launch will mark a major accomplishment for both the ARK Crew and ARK Community. The team behind the development of mainnet prioritized core’s stability over the speed of delivery to ensure a flawless, efficient system. ARK Crew expresses its gratitude to the understanding community that has been supporting them all along.

Once the genesis block is created on March 21, 2017, at 19:00 UTC, the crowd sale participants will be able to visit http://tec.ark.io/ to claim their ARK tokens. They can start withdrawing the tokens into their personal ARK wallets or addresses. ARK TEC participants and community members can also download an updated version of the ARK personal desktop wallet from the website before March 21st. At the same time, ARK insists existing wallet users to upgrade their ARK wallets to the latest mainnet version before launch.

The ARK Crew will soon start adding bounties to the Token Exchange website or manually process them after the mainnet launch, ensuring ample time for verifying the network before distribution. ARK will make the exchanges available to the community during the initial launch period. While additional details about the exchanges are limited at this time, the platform will soon update more information on its Slack Chat and official blog during the mainnet launch.

About ARK

A new decentralized digital asset token, ARK is 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.

ARK Updates

Significant upgrades made to ARK ecosystem includes the replacement of sidechains with SmartBridge, removal of custom node version, UI (for stability and security reasons), changes in constants like block time, block rewards, etc.

ARK now adds simple PBFT before forging a new block. It has also made some changes to the address format, keeping it close to the Bitcoin type addressing format while enabling HD Wallet (as per BIP32) functionality. Other changes include completely rewritten node management (using single Node-Manager and messaging system), forging round management (removal of mem-round, reward block fee to forger – zero delay reward) and an addition of 64 bytes Vendor Field as the first SmartBridge iteration.

In-memory Peer management processing for improved efficiency, strengthened transaction management and broadcast core functionality, division of relay nodes and forging nodes, modified nodes broadcast pattern for improved transaction speeds and SPV support for lite clients are some of the other additional updates included in the mainnet.

Once the ARK mainnet is launched, the platform intends to add IPFS as first class citizen (using SmartBridge addressing), improve the protocol (uncle forging, voting weights), remove unsecure APIs and create routing tables.

The ARK network is secured by 51 delegate nodes, chosen by a voting process involving public votes with ARK tokens. Each ARK token containing wallet will be eligible to cast one vote during the launch. However, once the mainnet starts operating smoothly, the voting mechanism will change to support multiple votes per wallet.

Approximately one week after the mainnet launch, ARK will introduce Community Forging at block 75,600, allowing anyone to run a forging node by making use of the ARK Commander Node installer and monitoring tool (instructions available on the blog). ARK has successfully tested 25 transactions per second, with 8 second block times on its testnet. However, the newly launched mainnet will be hard coded for 5 TPS, to be scaled on demand.

ARK once again expresses its gratitude to the community and ARK TEC participants for making the initiative possible. It invites people to submit their queries, support requests, and suggestions on the official ARK Slack channel.

CoinIdol to Hold Public Trial of Scammers Who Stole $10 mln in Bitcoin

Bitcoin Press Release: Coinidol.com News Outlet invites every FinTech news outlet and every member of the crypto-community to join the jury in the case, where scammers have allegedly stolen about $10,000,000.

March 7, 2017 – Coinidol.com, the Blockchain News Outlet that has an audience in 174 countries, is taking the role of organizer of a public trial.

To learn more about the case and rules of the public trial please visit: https://coinidol.com/coinidol-to-hold-public-trial-of-razormind-scammers/

When asked if it is not a job for international police George Gor founder of CoinIdol responded,

“The answer is simple. Blockchain projects got used to self-regulation instead of state regulation. The order is not settled. The biggest project, based on Blockchain technology, known as Bitcoin, is solving every question with public polls. The crypto community votes on what to do about every problem associated with Bitcoin. They don’t attract any authority. Moreover, Bitcoin was created to avoid authorities. Bitcoin is not recognized as a currency in many countries of the world. There are lots of countries where cryptocurrencies are called candy wrappers. Is it right to ask the police to regulate cases, where these candy wrappers were stolen? How do you regulate international scam cases with Bitcoin not in a single country but in the whole world? Why is it not a job for the crypto community?”

CoinIdol.com wants to set a precedent, of how the community can solve legal issues that is not protected by the law. CoinIdol is aware that this very first trial is experimental. George continues,

“We are afraid of the results much more than anybody. We are not sure that this is the right way, but someone should dare to be first.”

The second reason for hosting the public trial is that news sites are the first system used by scammers during so-called false ICOs. Scammers and fraudsters ask them to write articles or display banners to advertise them. George Gor continues,

“Can the whole crypto world set a precedent, when we force scammers, who have stolen up to $10 mln in Bitcoin to pay $1,000 to charity? ”

The same scammers often turn to other media platforms, advertising and PR-agencies as well. Some of these platforms may agree to such jobs without properly checking all the details, and as a result, accidentally help fraudsters steal money from other people’s pockets. Johanna, COO and co-founder of Bitcoin PR Buzz comments,

“This raises two very important philosophical questions, both of which I battle on a weekly basis: Is it okay to scam the scammer and can an industry without law be lawful?”

Coinidol is asking every member of the crypto community to vote and answer these questions. As well as the honorary members, who we invited to be the leaders in this process:

– Charles Hoskinson, former CEO of Ethereum;
– Nathan Wosnack, Founder and President of Ubitquity LLC;
– Richard Kastelein, Founder of The-blockchain.com;
– Alex Matanovic, Co-Founder of Serbian Bitcoin Association
– Roger Ver, Bitcoin Jesus, Founder of Bitcoin.com;
– Rupert Hackett, Board Director at Australian Digital Currency Commerce Association;
– Bas Wisselink, Co-Founder at NXT Foundation;
– Eric Grill, CEO of CoinOutlet, a Bitcoin ATMs company;
– Stephen DeMeulenaere, Co-Founder of Coin Academy;
– Ivan Tikhonov, Founder of Bits.media.

Update 03/09/2017:

Nathan Wosnack, president of blockchain company Ubitquity, has chosen to resign.

“After careful consideration, and the feedback from colleagues along with my lawyer, I’ve been told I should withdraw from this public trial. It could result in legal ramifications along with bad publicity. I have heard from his friend that Jawad may seek legal action. Therefore, I’d like to ask to have my name removed from participating.”

The vote will end on March 17, 2017, GMT, and the results will be published on Monday, March 20, 2017, with comments from the jurors on why they have voted the way they did.

The voting formula is: the results of the community voting and honorary jury will be summed 50/50. We will take further action depending on the results of the voting. George finishes by saying,

“Please, support this initiative however possible with post, repost, like, comment or any other way. It doesn’t matter, if you have pros or cons, you should take part in this, if you are a member of the world crypto community. Cast your vote – don’t permit somebody else to decide for you”
