MinexCoin aims to create the first digital asset that will be used as a currency with the advantages of the blockchain technology and master the main drawback of a cryptocurrency that denies its mass adoption: volatility

Boris SHULYAEV (CEO) founded one of the largest mining farm in Europe and has earned his stripes as a company leader by managing several public and private companies. Being also a professional economist, his unique range of skills makes him particularly suited to steer Minexcoin’s ambitions.

“Minexcoin is the first blockchain-based cryptocurrency that is designed with the necessary features to act as a stable currency. The embedded vision as well as the entire ecosystem around it will pave the way for a flourishing new era of payment,”

– Boris SHULYAEV, MinexCoin CEO.

A solid amount of investment has already been raised and there is no doubts as to whether or not the project will complete the second round. The only question that asks for an answer is the following : “Will you be part of the adventure by investing and contributing to the project’s success?”

The Force Behind NEM’s Rise, EcoBit Green Project Announces ICO

Bitcoin Press Release: EcoBit, NEM-based “green project” drives the cryptocurrency’s demand and price upwards.

May 18, 2017, Selangor, Malaysia – NEM is one of the fastest growing distributed ledger technology platform, powered by XEM cryptocurrency has registered an increase in its value and trading volumes in the recent days. The sudden growth was fueled by its partnership with EcoBit, a green project supported by the Kelantan State Government in Malaysia.

The drastic growth in demand for the out-of-the-box blockchain solution and its underlying XEM tokens during this year started with a Tweet showcasing the platform’s collaboration with EcoBit project and its Blockchain Card. EcoBit Blockchain Card is the first ever implementation of blockchain on a smart card with NEM technology that enables transaction of EcoBits tokens.

“XEM has approximately registered a 1924% growth in its price since the beginning of 2017.”

– EcoBit Team

The correlation between the EcoBit events and spikes in XEM prices was analyzed by Diario Bitcoin, a leading Spanish cryptocurrency news outlet with a huge readership and social media following that exceeds 18000 users. The XEM price chart shows a strong bullish trend line corresponding to the events. A closer look at the graph shows an approximate 154% increase in NEM prices from $0.0037 to $0.0094 between January and March 11, 2017, which signifies the phase two launch of the EcoBit project.

EcoBit NEM price chart

Approximately a month after, XEM experienced another significant climb to reach $0.0247 per token; moving an entire decimal point in a short span of time, which aligned with the launch of EcoBit website and ICO. In the month that followed, XEM price witnessed another shift in the decimal point to cross $0.1276 (as on May 14, 2017).

Following the ICO, EcoBit and its green initiative has gained a lot of popularity among community members, some of whom from Japan have also created EcoBit themed superhero cards.

What is EcoBit?

EcoBit is a green and sustainable lifestyle movement, developed in partnership with the Kelantan State Government in Malaysia. The EcoBit project pledges to manage one million acres of tropical rainforest in the region for the next 30 years. Its mission and accompanying eco-friendly projects will be financed through carbon credits and an ongoing ICO. The first of a kind “green project” ICO has already raised over $1 million in less than ten days. Open till June 8, 2017, EcoBit invites participants to continue contributing towards its sustainable environmental movement.

With NEM blockchain technology, the company creates a public supply chain for all produce created through its green projects on Carey Island. Through blockchain implementation, EcoBit focuses on transparency, immutability, and accountability, ensuring that people know exactly what they are buying, where it is coming from and under what ethical circumstances.

The EcoBit tokens can be traded like any other cryptocurrencies on exchange platforms once the ICO comes to an end. Explaining the difference between EcoBit and other blockchain projects, the CEO of Climate Protector/EcoBit Mr. Tang Too Siah said,

“Unlike many other cryptocurrency projects, EcoBit is backed by real world needs and assets. Within 12 months’ time, we will become an industry leader, and many people will start to question which cryptocurrency is backed by real projects?”

Already five months in the making, EcoBit secured the project to manage and maintain a million acres of tropical rainforest from the government on January 9, 2017. As a part of the project, the platform is responsible for protecting the area from illegal activities, reduce CO2 emissions and increase carbon stocks for trading purposes through the REDD/REDD+ Carbon Trading/Offset Market. The one million acres of forest land is also the home for world’s second oldest rainforest located in Kelantan.

In the second phase, sustainable projects will be implemented at the EcoBit Sanctuary Asia, located on Carey Island. These projects will involve setting up of spirulina farms, aquaponics farms, organic vegetables, free-range chicken, coconut plantations and eco-tourism projects to bolster greener thinking and education (subject to each project milestone being fulfilled). The following third phase will see an expansion of these sanctuaries to the Europe, United States, China, Australia and other regions across the globe.

The use of self-sustaining NEM blockchain-based smart contracts enables projects to manage and monetize natural resources to reduce carbon emissions ethically. It also creates a transparent, immutable digital supply chain ledger that allows anyone to track and monitor the carbon credits/impact, project’s yields (agricultural produce) and the movement of products from the origin to supermarket shelves. Through the ledger, consumers can be assured of the organic nature and ethical handling of food produce. The recently introduced EcoBit Blockchain Card can be used by members to “earn” EcoBit tokens via recycling program and “pay” merchants for their goods and services.

The ongoing ICO offers an attractive, once in a lifetime opportunity for investors interest in not only cryptocurrency revolution but environmental consciousness to contribute towards and eco-friendly blockchain-based project, fighting global warming and climate change in the process.

About EcoBit

EcoBit is the latest in crypto credit offered to the general public which has its foundation built on a sustainable program to reduce carbon footprints on planet earth. The green project is taking charge in the fight to make the world a safe and healthier place for all to live in.

DNotes Launches New Website – Aims to Bridge the Gap Between Centralized and Decentralized Worlds

Bitcoin Press Release: The new, updated DNotes website is user-friendly and reflects the latest developments in the blockchain platform and its various initiatives.

May 12, 2017, CHICAGO, Illinois – After a period of relative silence as the DNotes team migrated from ecosystem building to technology development; the company recently launched its new website – showcasing one of its many initiatives to bridge the gap between the centralized and the decentralized world.

Co-Founder Alan Yong, a well-regarded visionary, successful entrepreneur, and author of “Improve Your Odds – The Four Pillars of Business Success” observed that mass acceptance of Bitcoin and other digital currencies would not be achievable unless there are deliberate and large-scale global initiatives. These initiatives should bridge the gap between the dominant centralized world and the new decentralized world of digital currency and financial technologies (FinTech).

As Yong explains,

“For any digital currency to be adopted on a global scale, it must be completely accessible and suitable for use by everyone in the world – regardless of wealth or technical knowledge.”

DNotes is a decentralized digital currency founded with a purpose, designed with the common person in mind. For over three years DNotes has been reaching out to segments of the population that are under-represented in the digital currency community and stand to lose out on tremendous amounts of potential wealth due to that exclusion.

With the launch of projects like DCEBrief, DNotesEDU, CryptoMoms, and DNotesVault, the DNotes team has strived to reach out beyond the industry to inform, educate, and encourage the participation of underserved demographics, including the female population. Visitors to the new website will quickly recognize that DNotes has created a robust ecosystem, with rich content designed to eventually pave the way toward mass acceptance of its digital currency.

The DNotes Difference

Yong and his team pride themselves on doing things differently than others in the cryptocurrency community. As the company’s website notes:

“DNotes is different. We’ve strategically positioned the DNotes digital currency as a solution to the challenges of gaining mass adoption and meeting the full functions of money as a unit of account, a medium of exchange, and a store of value. Our vision has been focused on building a trusted digital currency that is superior to fiat currency, conveniently available to everyone in the world, and capable of serving as a supplement to fiat currency in commerce around the globe.”

DNotes’ path to achieving those goals has been different as well. The company has focused on strategically building the foundation for an integrated ecosystem that will seamlessly bridge the divide between decentralized digital currency and the centralized world of finance and commerce. According to Yong,

“DNotes’ superiority as a digital currency cannot be fully realized until its technical representation and simplicity are equal to that of traditional money. Our infrastructure will eventually include a full array of frictionless financial services that enable account holders to save, store, spend, convert, and transfer DNotes as easily as any fiat currency.”

What Makes DNotes Different?

DNotes puts ease-of-use near the top of its priority list. While the general public has been bombarded with tech jargon and overly complex hype, DNotes has made a conscious effort to reach everyone and simplify the user experience. DNotesVault was released in 2015 as part of that pledge to simplify things. It is easier to open a DNotesVault account than it is to open a new bank account, and the company offers several different Cryptocurrency Investment Savings Plans for account holders.

DNotes has not only been committed to simplifying cryptocurrency use but has also been educating the general public since 2015 – using DNotesEDU to provide basic cryptocurrency education and promote financial literacy. Dedicated volunteers operate DNotesEDU, funded by donors from the DNotes team.

A Foundation For Success

Based on the well-founded principles described in The Four Pillars of Business Success, DNotes has deliberately taken a much different approach than its cryptocurrency peers. DNotes has spent three years laying the foundation to execute the next stage of the company’s plan as it draws closer to its goal of creating a global payment network that is more efficient than traditional networks and easier to use. To help facilitate this lofty goal, DNotes Global Inc. was incorporated in the State of Delaware in 2016, with the platform’s cryptocurrency holders retaining 25% equity in the new company.

For DNotes, every move is made with optimal timing in mind. Every piece of DNotes’ infrastructure is a vital component that enables the company to scale and service the world’s financial needs at substantially lower cost. The highly-anticipated release of DNotes 2.0 will move the company one step closer to its goal of providing the superior innovation and technological leadership the industry needs for mass acceptance.

BitConnect Coin (BCC) Records an Astounding 1800% Value Increase, within 6 Months of ICO

Bitcoin Press Release: Popular cryptocurrency BitConnect Coin has recorded an 18x price increase in 6 months following the ICO.

May 12, 2017, Ashford, UK – UK-based cryptocurrency start-up BitConnect has announced an 18x surge in the value of its BitConnect Coin (BCC) cryptocurrency. In a span of six months following its ICO in November 2016, BCC has risen from $0.5 to $9 per unit. Following the momentum of Bitcoin, BCC has maintained its upward trend and is projected to continue its growth trend throughout 2017.

Like Bitcoin and other leading cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum Classic, BCC has a fixed monetary supply of 28 million. BCC is a deflationary currency, and because of the limited supply, the price of BCC is expected to rise as long as the demand is met and sustained. However, the continued increase in demand for BCC as the supply remains fixed ensures a constant rise in the cryptocurrency’s value over a long period of time.

Currently, around 6 million BitConnect Coins are in existence with a significantly large investor community, which includes many avid BCC community members from Asian countries. The BitConnect team is witnessing a rapid proliferation of BCC throughout various countries within Asia, and on a long run, they hope to witness a similar trend in rest of the world as well. The team is heavily involved in raising a prolific worldwide BCC community and expects its effort to bear results in the near future.

With a market cap of $49.7 million, BCC is one of the leading cryptocurrencies competing with other innovative altcoins such as Lisk, Ardor, and Iconomi. In fact, the current market cap of BCC is larger than that of Iconomi, which very recently raised over $10.5 million in its first ICO.

BCC’s consistency and rapid increase in price have triggered the interests of many investors in the cryptocurrency community over the past few months. An increasing number of traders and investors have begun to enquire about the optimal period for investing in BitConnect Coin.

Based on BCC’s six-month trend, May and June could be the best time possible to invest in Bitcoin for two important reasons: an explosive growth of the cryptocurrency market and the short-term downward trend in BCC.

Although BCC has enjoyed a massive half-year growth since January, the price of BCC fell from April 1 till early May. However, the price of BCC has already started to bounce back, and it is in the process of rebounding to its previous all-time high of $15

Blockchain Startup VIVA Officially Launches the VIVAconomy, Announce Crowdsale

Bitcoin Press Release: New cryptocurrency startup, VIVA has officially announced its blockchain-based digital currency economy — VIVAconomy accompanied by VIVA Crown ICO.

May 8, 2017, Cheyenne, USA – Blockchain startup VIVA, has announced the launch of its digital currency economy and ICO crowdsale. The platform is built around the digital currency VIVA COIN with a primary focus on stability achieved by its three-tiered framework. The platform will be running the ICO/crowdsale of its VIVA Crown digital assets over a period of three weeks. In the duration, the platform will make 6500 elite VIVA Crowns available to investors. Holders of this unique VIVA Crown will receive a license to operate a VIVA Mint generating VIVA Coins and contribute in making key decisions in the VIVAconomy for the whole community’s benefit.

VIVA’s Blockchain platform’s three-tiered, economically stabilized digital currency framework incorporates innovative technologies that not only eliminate the extreme volatility that plagues other digital currencies but also has the potential to provide long-term stable recurring income for all participants.

Unlike other cryptocurrency projects, owning VIVA Crowns confers significant powers to the holders within VIVAconomy, including a license to operate a VIVA Mint. Every quarter each Crown Holder is assigned a “Treasury Right”, enabling them to mint an agreed upon quantity of VIVA Coins.

The rights conferred by owning a VIVA Crown can also be sold to a mint based on the wishes of the holder. In addition, the platform also sets aside a portion of VIVA Coins generated by transactions within the VIVAconomy for worthy causes. These Award Rights are also decided by the VIVA Crown Holders.

Each VIVA Crown Holder is also entitled to one vote regardless of the number of Crowns they may possess. These votes are invoked while making important decisions that influence the VIVAconomy. Thus, ensuring that every Crown token holder has an equal influence on the platform’s progress.

Dawn Parker-Waites, CEO of VIVA explains the VIVAconomy by saying,

“The VIVAconomy harnesses the cumulative power of all the transactions that occur in the system and reinvests them in the long-term future of everyone involved. Instead of inflating corporate balance sheets, we aim to provide financial stability for individual human beings. Thanks to our cutting-edge technology, there’s no longer a need to pay financiers for keeping track of transactions that can easily be handled on the blockchain at a fraction of the cost.”

In the VIVAconomy, a VIVA Crown is a software license that allows the Crown holder to participate in the economy’s decision-making process. From a business perspective, owning a VIVA Crown allows an individual to offset infrastructure costs by leveraging the economic energy that would otherwise feed banks and government. Similarly, from a legal standpoint, VIVA Crowns are in fact a software license required to run a mint in the VIVAconomy, making it an indispensable asset whose value is bound to appreciate with time.

When asked about the ICO, Parker-Waites added,

“It is, however important for people to understand that the project is just getting off the ground. The ICO is predominantly to raise funds so we can hire more developers. At the moment, the best way into or out of the VIVAconomy is through TradeQwik.com, or via bitShares since we have an asset and gateway there now as well. People can also use the two VIVA ATMs that have been operating in Mexico for over a year. We’re in this for the long haul, but there is still lots of work to be done. This opportunity is for people interested in getting in on the ground floor.”

Unlike the commonly used Proof of Work (PoW) or Proof of Stake (PoS), VIVA makes use of a concept called Proof of Authority (PoA). The Proof of Authority system supports instant transactions and seamless consensus. Proof of Authority disposes of certain egalitarian notions involved in weaker consensus models and replaces them with cryptographic signature proofs and business contracts enforced and backed by the network.

The VIVA Coin team’s decision to move away from widely used Proof of Stake to Proof of Authority consensus is influenced by its intention to overcome certain disadvantages of the former algorithm.

“While Proof of Stake might have certain advantages, it is not a panacea. The problem is that there is no guarantee that the validator with the highest collateral deposited for a block is going to operate the network in its best interests. In fact, Proof of Stake coins are plagued with issues because rational people tend to act in their own self-interest. PoS works only because the best interests of the largest stakeholders usually do align with those of the network. In the case of a disagreement, however, the largest stakeholder might assume the role of the supreme commander.”

The total number of VIVA Crowns are capped at 42,000, mined at the rate of one Crown per week following the conclusion of the ICO. Through the crowdsale, VIVA is in the process of raising funds required to expand its team of developers to ensure rapid development of the entire VIVA ecosystem. VIVA has lined up a series of enterprise-class business applications built on its technology which will be released soon.

By bringing more and more real world solutions into the ecosystem, the company will continue to improve the financial future of all participants. The beauty of VIVAconomy is that every VIVA plays a role in the economic growth of the community.

VIVA Coin ICO

To get started in the VIVAconomy, participants can go to the platform’s ICO page and follow the simple instructions. Supported currencies include Bitcoin (BTC), LiteCoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Steem Backed Dollars (SBD), STEEM (STEEM), USD, GOLOS (GOLOS), Mexican Pesos (MXN) and WANGCHANGE (XWANG). VIVA intends to extend support to other currencies and will update the page as and when they are added.

For detailed information on how the VIVAconomy works, readers should visit www.vivaco.in and download the project’s whitepaper.

Polybius Project Estimates Over 500,000 Early Adopters as Crowdfunding Campaign Nears

Bitcoin Press Release: Cryptocurrency friendly Polybius Project receives support from over 500,000 crypto-community members before the crowdsale launch.

April, 28, 2017, Tallinn, Estonia – Nearing the launch of the crowdfunding campaign for their digital cryptoproject Polybius, the Estonian company Polybius Foundation has declared their starting client base. The 500,000 strong user base of HashFlare cloud mining service, owned by the founders of Polybius Foundation, will help them smash their initial funding goals.

“The greatest projects happen, when innovative ideas meet meticulous implementation. The client base of over 500,000 active users, already interested in investing into the cryptobusiness provides us with a massive head start to accomplish our most ambitious goals.”

— Co-founder and Chairman of Polybius Foundation, Ivan Turygin

Polybius is the general name for the ecosystem connecting the Digital Pass remote identification service, storage of protected personal data, and financial services through Polybius Bank.

Digital Pass will become the universal all-European counterpart eID, with a wide range of functions, and more versatile than existing electronic identity cards. For example, in EU countries there is to date no single database for people’s health conditions, so with a prescription signed by a doctor in one country, you can’t buy medicine in another country. No educational database exists to record in digital format which courses have been attended, so in order to continue studying in a new place, you often need, as in the old days, documents on paper.

These and other problems will be solved by Digital Pass, developed by Polybius Foundation. Its users will receive a universal digital repository of their personal data in the blockchain, accepted by state and commercial organizations as equivalent to classical ID. For example, when providing urgent medical assistance in a foreign country, medical professionals will have access to their full medical history and insurance information upon a patient’s consent, with no excessive procedures or legal paperwork. A Digital Pass user will be able to decide for themselves which pieces of data to show to whom, while the repository’s security level makes information impossible to access without permission from its owner.

The Digital Pass’ launch will be organized by Polybius Bank, a payment institution under the auspices of Polybius Foundation. In those European countries which do not have their own eID, Polybius, as a banking organization, will be able to issue its own eID, officially recognized by all remaining EU states under the eIDAS directive of July 23rd, 2014.

“We are starting our journey as a payment service provider, allowing users to pay for purchases online conveniently and reliably, without third-party applications or entering unnecessary data when a phone contains all the tools for 100% guaranteed user identification: fingerprint, voice recognition, and facial recognition using the camera. We want to build the ultimate financial infrastructure, sort of a “financial Google”, which will not only simplify and reduce the costs of finance management for the people, but will also become a vital part of all aspects of their daily life, while at the same time providing them maximum control over their data.”

— Co-founder and Chairman of Polybius Foundation, Ivan Turygin

Polybius’ crowdfunding campaign, in the format of an ICO, starts this Spring and aims to raise more than $25 million. Everyone taking part in the campaign will be among the first to get a bank account and the first in line for the Digital Pass digital identity. After the project’s launch, everyone is welcome to join it.

Questions from the press and bloggers can be directed to the official Polybius Foundation Spokesperson, Edgar Bers
