EXMO Cryptocurrency Platform to Launch Margin Loans With the Power of the Crowdsale

December 1, 2017, London, UK EXMO has announced their plan to introduce margin loans as the key feature of their platform, which will allow traders to earn more on currency fluctuations by borrowing extra funds. This will bring a whole new way of trading to over 700,000 loyal traders around the globe and numerous new ones, enabling them to trade cryptocurrencies on a bigger scale than they would be able to previously.

Under a margin loan, one borrows funds from a broker to buy or sell stock. EXMO will offer 1:2 leverages for a margin loan on the most popular BTC, ETH, and USD order books. More options will come in the future as the demand for the service  increases.

In order to cover the traders’ demand for margin loans, as well as to enable the overall platform development, EXMO will attract additional investment capital by issuing its very own token called EXMO Coin (EXO).

At the core of the upcoming crowdsale is the principle of giving the already-profitable platform an additional boost for rapid development. Half of the funds raised through the crowdsale will be used to cover the increasing demand for margin loans, and another quarter will be put into the overall cryptocurrency exchange development.

The rest will go into establishing the margin loan insurance fund, acquiring the necessary licensing for simplifying the fiat money transactions, and covering marketing expenses.

Ivan Petukhovsky, EXMO co-founder, explains:

“We at EXMO believe that cryptocurrency trading must offer the same variety of investment tools as ordinary trading. We look to the future and would like to foster this development through bringing the virtual and real economies closer, and giving more people opportunities to invest and earn with just a click. Issuing the EXMO Coin will enable us to satisfy the demand of hundreds of thousands of traders, and develop an even more resilient, reliable, and truly global exсhange platform.”

Token holders will receive 50% of the revenue derived from margin loans distributed among them in the form of dividends on a monthly basis.

Following the sale, the EXMO Coin will be traded on the EXMO Exchange in pairs, such as EXO/BTC and EXO/ETH, and later on with other currencies and altcoins, thus constituting another lucrative asset for its holder.

On top of that, EXMO announced its guaranteed token buyout, outlining the corresponding conditions and dates in their White Paper.

About EXMO

The EXMO Exchange was founded in 2013, and has showcased steady performance ever since. In fact, it saw a trading volume of $192 mln back in 2014, growing to $1.8 bln in 2017, and 591,000 deals in 2014 reaching 24 mln in 2017. Thus, the trading volume and the number of deals made through the platform grew by 9 and 40 times respectively in the course of 3.5 years. The client base swelled by 188% in 2017. This tends to be an essential dynamic to consider, as the value of EXMO Coin will correlate with EXMO’s overall performance, as well as exchange rates of other currencies on the platform.

EXMO will launch their token currency on February 26, 2018, and all the interested users will immediately be able to purchase EXMO Coin tokens. The crowdsale will last until March 26, 2018.

EXMO Cryptocurrency Platform to Launch Margin Loans With the Power of the Crowdsale

Bankera ICO is Now Live: Be Part of the Banking Revolution

November 30, 2017, Vilnius, Lithuania — In September, Bankera (https://bankera.com/) completed one of the biggest pre-ICO sales to date after raising 25 million Euros and gathering more than 16,000 contributors. Now, after much anticipation, its’ ICO sale officially opened to the public on November 27th.

Bankera is building a revolutionary bank for the blockchain era, which will eventually become a one-stop store for all financial services. It is an operational fork of SpectroCoin (https://spectrocoin.com), a cryptocurrency solution service with an existing base of 490,000 clients and more than 64,000 cards issued.. Since it has already developed a core infrastructure equivalent to traditional banks, a natural extension of the company is to leverage its’ existing technology to build Bankera.

Bankera’s Updates

Bankera has built a team of over 50 talented professionals with expertise in diverse fields. Audrius Ziugzda, an expert banker, is the latest addition to company’s advisory board. He brings with him over 20 years of experience in the banking sector, mainly in the M&A, banking operations and strategic fields. He joins names such as Lon Wong, president of the NEM.io foundation, Antanas Guoga, a member of the European Parliament, and Eva Kaili, also a member of the European Parliament.

Bankera’s Services

In order to operate in a spectrum of different fiat currencies and to facilitate cross-border transactions, Bankera will seek banking licenses in several key jurisdictions. This will help to lower the number of counterparties, resulting in reduced costs for the end consumer.

It will also offer core banking services, such as savings and loans accounts, as well as low-cost investment products, such as exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and crypto funds. Through Bankera’s MVP, SpectroCoin, contributors and clients can already use its services including fiat and cryptocurrency wallets, exchange and payment processing services. They can also order cryptocurrency debit cards, which can be linked to Bitcoin, DASH, Ethereum, or NEM wallets.

Bankera’s business development strategy, led by Craig Grant, who formerly worked at the Paysafe Group and Currencycloud, continues to deliver innovative and unique results. Most recently, the team released the demo version of Bankera’s exchange platform and the ability for its users to claim International bank account numbers (IBAN).

Bankera’s Own Exchange Platform

As the world of blockchain technology continues to grow and diversify, Bankera realised that was a demand for a viable product that would address the needs of all of its users. SpectroCoin’s #1 focus has been on giving its users a platform to purchase, sell and trade Cryptocurrency, which has therefore led to a solution tailored for that in regards of user experience, interface and cost structure. As trading becomes more widespread, Bankera continues to adapt to the always-changing market. As such, they have developed an in house, cost-effective exchange platform that will give its users the ability to trade at a most lower cost.

Bankera’s exchange will support most cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, DASH, Ethereum, NEM, Litecoin to name but a few as well as ERC20 and NEM mosaic tokens. The company will be working closely with ICO contributors and cryptocurrency users throughout the project development, since it aims to develop a product that fits the needs of the community.

How To Buy Tokens

On November 27th Bankera has launched its main ICO sale which together with pre-ICO has already raised over 30 million euros with over 23,000 investors and counting. During the ICO, 30% of the tokens are available for sale to the public at the price of 0.017 EUR on SpectroCoin platform. ICO contributors can choose from more than 20 payment methods when to purchase their BNK tokens. These include a variety of cryptocurrencies, such as ETH, BTC, DASH and XEM, and fiat currencies like EUR, GBP, and USD.

Throughoutthe ICO, Bankera will continue to offer a weekly net transactional revenue share for all token holders. After the ICO, the company aims to obtain a banking license and transition to a fully operational banking service for both, fiat and cryptocurrencies.

Blockchain P2P Lending, Sending, and Spending: Etherecash Garners Support From Over 40,000 Contributors During Pre-ICO

Bitcoin Press Release: With more than 40 thousand contributors since the ICO Launch, November 15th, and an extraordinarily successful Pre-ICO in late October, Etherecash continue their strong run and look to burst into the Financial-Crypto market in the not-so-distant future.

November 29, 2017 – A little over three weeks are left in the Etherecash token sale and it’s been a fantastic run so far; the success they have seen comes after a big appearance at the World Blockchain Summit, Dubai, which was closely followed by a heated Pre-ICO.

The Etherecash bug is running rampage at a time where revolution is needed within the financial industry; the 2008 financial crash has opened a wide void of distrust across the world; there are over 2 billion people around the world who don’t have access to bank accounts or basic financial services, due to the current state of modern banking.

The Etherecash Journey

Etherecash has a real mission accompanied by a long-term strategy which is painstakingly designed to challenge and disrupt the already witless financial industry. And they’re not rushing it either; having begun in Q4 of 2016, Etherecash have come a long way to where they are now with the ICO in full swing, attracting attention from investors world-wide.

The Etherecash project will take new strides next year when they will expand the development team, begin alpha and beta testing of the platform, and prepare mobile apps for deployment. Finally, Etherecash will show the true test of their service, by commencing the alpha testing of their revolutionary multi-crypto debit card to prepare for final release.

Here’s why Etherecash has been the Number 1 ICO of 2017:

The platform is the remedy to the overly-complex and lengthy process of getting a traditional bank account, and will provide access to finances through a cryptocurrency-backed P2P (Peer-to-Peer) fiat currency loan marketplace. P2P loans are backed by the borrower’s own crypto-wealth allowing them to borrow up to 80% of their wallet’s value.

Additionally, global money transfers via the blockchain adds another layer of brilliance to the platform, blockchain technology has huge financial strengths with its instant, anonymous, secure and cheap money transfers.

On top of this, once the our crypto debit card is available, and users will be able to store multiple types of cryptocurrency on it, shop anywhere and everywhere as they please, even abroad.

The Etherecash Team

Etherecash envision themselves as a “bunch of strange individuals” with one thing in common: hating bank fees. Being backed by some of the greatest minds in the industry, from veteran stock trader Jacky Thanh Ly as CEO, former MMRM CEO Miguel Aguirre as COO, the reputable networking and security IT Engineer, Silvan Gebhardt and faithful mentors who advise from positions and fields of Strategic Investment, Financial Advisors, Cryptocurrency Attorneys, Fintech Entrepreneurs, the list goes on…

“We’re going forward with bringing the future of banking to the masses and think the world should know just how proud we are”

Come along for the journey and take part in the ICO which is entering it;s third week.

About the ICO:

Based on the Ethereum standard token ERC20, purchasable with Bitcoin or Ethereum, the exciting ICO Launch began 15th November, 2017 – Ending December 19th, 2017.

With a supply of 360,000,000 Tokens and an ICO supply of 144,000,000, early adopters are welcomed with an incentivising ICO bonus structure:

Main ICO Bonus:
15th November – 15%
Week One – 12%
Week Two – 10%
Week Three – 5%
Week Four – 3%
Week Five – 0%

AGT Introduces Blockchain Technology to Travel and Tourism Aggregation Market

Bitcoin Press Release: AGT Technology announces the token sale as it creates a blockchain solution for the $7 billion-plus global travel and tourism industry.

November 24, 2017, Tallinn, Estonia – AGT Technologies, the blockchain solutions company is revolutionizing the travel and tourism industry by implementing the decentralized ledger technology. The platform makes use of Ethereum blockchain and its smart contracts capabilities to eliminate the complexities surrounding the industry segment. As its initial product offering, the company is creating a blockchain based taxi aggregation service with greater transparency and cost-effectiveness in comparison to existing mainstream players like Uber, Lyft, and others.

The membership-based decentralized cab aggregation platform is powered by native AGT Tokens, which the company is offering as a part of its crowdsale campaign. The platform has created a total of 54 Million ERC20 tokens, with a potential to serve a significant portion of a market that currently has over 1.2 billion customers across the world.

The creators of AGT Platform have factored in the various shortcomings of today’s cab aggregation model, including the lack of transparency in pricing for customers and hefty commissions paid by the drivers amid increased competition. By introducing a democratized token economy into one of the first movers in the “Shared Economy”, AGT Platform eliminates middlemen and replaces them with an automated smart contract powered system, allowing drivers to retain most of their earnings, which in turn will make the rides a lot cheaper for customers.

In addition to the cost benefits, the platform also provides added safety to the customers with features like live tracking and more. It supports multiple cab booking models – Aggregator Model and Ownership model for the convenience of both drivers and customers.

The company’s business, as well as technology models, have been vetted by some of the leading legal experts and ethical hackers to ensure compliance across various aspects.

The platform is embarking on a closed group funding round from November 23, 2017. It will be followed by token pre-sale, set to go live on December 1, 2017, and then the main crowdsale starting December 15, 2017. The company aims to complete the platform development by next November and release it to public use by May 2019.

Following the success of blockchain-based cab aggregation project, AGT will shift its focus on Hotel and Airline Aggregation solutions.

More information about the project and upcoming token sale is available at – www.agttoken.com.

About AGT Technology

AGT Technology is a blockchain platform aspiring to create an ecosystem that broadens the scope of application of decentralized ledger technology by overcoming commercial boundaries.

MatchPool Bring Their Community Blockchain Tool up to Speed with Updated Alpha Version 2.1

Bitcoin Press Release: Innovative platform MatchPool have made their latest leap in developing their decentralized, Blockchain-based platform, which seeks to allow users world-wide to connect with each other. With this view comes the release of the MatchPool Alpha 2.1 version.

November 21st, 2017 – Tel Aviv, Israel – Israeli MatchPool certainly have high hopes and ambitions for the future of wealth transfer within a unique asset: Connections. It has been touted time and time again that it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. MatchPool certainly have a good understanding of this concept, and have already begun developing their decentralized Blockchain platform based upon this, which is currently in its’ Alpha stage.

A recent announcement by MatchPool announces their Alpha 2.1 stage, which can be accessed using this link.  Before Launching Matchpool Alpha 2.1: Claim your XGUP & Install Metamask. XGUP works just like GUP for the demo.

What’s New on the platform?

There is a new area inside Matchpool called “Intros”, where Pool Owners and Pool Members can manage their introductions, matches, messages and ratings.

Pool Owners can receive Intro Requests from Pool Members that want to privately message other members of the same Pool. The Pool Owner can break the ice between two members by adding an additional ice-breaker message to their introduction.

Pool Members can request to be introduced to new members. They can also manage their incoming Intro Requests and privately message and rate other members they’ve successfully matched with.

How Matchmaking & Intros work

Requesting an Introduction to another Member

Once a Matchpool member has joined a community Pool, the member can publicly chat with other members of the Pool, and can privately chat to other members by sending a Request Intro to the Pool Owner (Matchmaker).

Once Request Intro is selected, the Intros panel appears in the Introduce Me tab and the member can write a message to the Pool Owner about why they would like to be introduced to the other member. Once this is sent, it will appear in the Pool Owners Intros panel under Intro Requests.

Introducing Members with an Ice Breaker

After an Intro Request has been sent to the Pool Owner, the Pool Owner will decide to accept or decline the intro. The Pool Owner can write an optional Ice Breaker message before clicking Make Intro to create the connection.

Accepting an ‘Incoming Intro‘

Once an Intro is created by a Pool Owner, the Intro Icebreaker is sent to the desired member and it appears in the member’s My Intros inbox.

Messaging a New Match

Once two members have successfully been introduced, they can message each other in the Messages tab within the Intros panel — Voila, a new match is made.

Rating the Quality of an Intro

After the intro has been accepted and match has been made, both members are shown an Intro Rating pop-up box and asked to rate the intro quality after a number of message exchanges.

Both members can rate how beneficial the Intro and the Ice Breaker message was between 1 and 5 drops. When both members have rated the Intro, the Pool Owner’s Intro Rating Score updates on their profile, reflecting the overall quality of all Intros made in every Pool they own.

Additional In-Web App Features

We’ve made some subtle improvements to the user interface and re-positioned a couple of features, including:

  • A new header with search and more minimal interface.
  • Pool navigation tabs now appear above the Pool cover image.
  • New Pool’ & ‘New Discussion’ Notification Labels
  • Total Member Count & Matches shown on Pool Thumbnails
  • Discussions’ to become ‘Chat’.
  • (A future article will detail more on Pool ‘Chat’ development)
  • Show / Copy / Hide Ethereum Address

What’s next?

Enabling Private Messages without Intros

Pool Owners will get an option to turn on and off ‘Intros’. This would allow members of the Pool to chat with other members by sending a ‘message request’ or a ‘like’ to the other member, bi-passing the matchmaker’s introduction. If a private message thread begins between those two users, a match is created. If the Pool Owner enables this option and disables Intros, the quality of the matches between members is likely to decrease, but the quantity of matches inside the pool will increase.

On-boarding New Users

We’ll be improving and testing the on-boarding process including a new homepage design and Pool creation process.

Seamless GUP Payments

Payments are currently made via Metamask, which adds friction to the transactions made inside the app. We will be allocating resources to research and develop payments without requiring Metamask.

Community Feedback

We’re continually testing and bug fixing at the Matchpool HQ. If you have suggestions, ideas and feedback to send back to the team, send in your comments and suggestions to the Community Forum. If you’re new to Matchpool, join over 1,000 members in our Telegram channel

Ethereum Creator Vitalik Buterin Explores Zk-STARKs In New Blog Post

Ethereum Creator Vitalik Buterin Explores Zk-STARKs In New Blog Post

Click here to view original web page at www.ethnews.com

On November 9, Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin published a blog post exploring the class of technology known as zero-knowledge Succinct Transparent ARguments of Knowledge (zk-STARKs) and how they differ from the related and better-known mechanisms that fit under the gloss of zero-knowledge Succinct Non-interactive ARguments of Knowledge (zk-SNARKs).

The concept for zk-SNARKs (which predates Ethereum, but in the Ethereum context could be used to verify transactions) caught the attention of several of that blockchain’s developers as a result of its anonymity-enabling properties.

While currently the sending address, receiving address, and the amount of Ether involved in every Ethereum transaction is a matter of public record, zk-SNARKs would effectively mask these three data points, potentially making the platform more attractive to privacy-focused users.

Among the features that enable greater anonymity is the use of a non-zero “random secret number.” The prover of a transaction multiplies this number by the product of two mathematical functions, then sends the verifier the resulting value as well as the value of the random secret number. With this information, the recipient node can verify a transaction while knowing almost nothing about it.

As the ability to verify transactions faster has become a more central concern for Ethereum, several of the blockchain’s developers have started looking at zk-SNARKs as a means to boost scalability. In addition to their potential to enhance privacy, zk-SNARKs offer the benefit of reducing transaction verification time relative to the capacity of the current protocol.

Zk-STARKs share this feature with their more famous SNARK “cousins,” but according to Buterin, also address several shortcomings, including their “reliance on a ‘trusted setup.’” Additionally, he claims that the technology is theoretically “secure even against attackers with quantum computers.”

While he estimates zk-STARKs’ proof sizes to be “a few hundred kilobytes” relative to zk-SNARKs’ 288 bytes, he argues that the tradeoff may be worthwhile “in the context of public blockchain applications where the need for trust minimization is high,” and most certainly will be “if elliptic curves break or quantum computers do come around.”

According to a PowerPoint document by computer science professor Eli Ben-Sasson, who Buterin thanks by name in his zk-STARKs blog post, a “[computational integrity and privacy] system is transparent if setup and all verifier queries are public random coins.” Unlike this technology, zk-SNARKS require a “non-transparent setup phase.”

For further details, be sure to visit Buterin’s blog post, here.

ASTEROID Ltd. Launches ICO: DEMOCRATIZING SPACE – One BlockClaim® at a Time…

Bitcoin Press release: All indicators suggest that Asteroid Mining will become mainstream in the foreseeable future. Those individuals, companies and nation states that avail themselves of this inevitability will enjoy the significant projected financial rewards.

November 10, 2017, Hong Kong — Asteroid, Ltd. (“Asteroid”) made international headlines today with the announcement of a highly anticipated ICO.  A Blockclaim®, which resides on the Ethereum network, is Asteroid’s proprietary platform, the world’s only mechanism to establish claiming rights to the 600,000 Asteroids already identified in our near celestial orbit.  Asteroid will provide this platform registry, using a state-of-the-art blockchain distributed ledger.

NASA says, by their estimates, there is over $700 Quintillion Dollars in mineral resources in asteroids available to humankind.  That is over $100 Billion for every human being alive today.  But who owns it and how do we make our claim?

Asteroid, Ltd., through its proprietary BlockClaim® ecosystem will make it possible to Democratize Space and allow anyone the ability to lay claim to space. “The Outer Space Treaty” declared and ratified this in 1967.  Essentially, it said Space is for all humankind, no Nation State or Sovereignty may claim space as their own.

Simply put, The Stars Are Ours!

In essence, BlockClaims® may likely be to Space what Domains are to the Internet.

Asteroid, Ltd. proposes a unique implementation, using our proprietary mechanism called a BlockClaim®. The described system will be deployed worldwide to record mining claims both in a terrestrial environment and a non-terrestrial space environment. The proposed system will leverage smart contract techniques to automate a process whereby the dataset will define a mining claim.  Asteroid, Ltd. recognises, that to truly democratize space, a decentralized system must be established that will allow any individual, corporation or nation state the ability to easily and efficiently make their claim. Each BlockClaim® is essentially an immutable and secure smart contract utilising the blockchain to store a BlockClaim®. The platform will also combine solutions for searching and paying the registration fee for claims using ASTR® Tokens (“ASTRCOINS®”).

Each Blockclaim® will be secured via a token called ASTR® (ASTRCOIN®) within the Ethereum platform. This will ensure significant usage of the ASTRCOIN® currency, giving liquidity and growth in the value of the currency.

As Space exploration grows so will the value of ASTRCOIN®.  Immediate liquidity is achieved through the consistent registration of BlockClaims®.

The Asteroid ICO is not only unique but it allows for a heartfelt and enchanting opportunity, whereby the dreams of our youth may become the reality of our future.

A BlockClaim® may only be registered using an ASTRCOIN®.  Hence, the intrinsic liquidity of each ASTRCOIN® is a part of the ecosystem itself.  As each of us recognise our right to claim space, the BlockClaim® ecosystem using the ASTRCOIN® will enable millions of ongoing transactions.

Ambisafe Wallets Unaffected by Critical Parity Multi-Sig Vulnerability

Ethereum Press Release: Following the recent vulnerability found in Parity wallets, Ambisafe reassures the public about their multi-sig solutions.

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 10, 2017 – Ambisafe offers reassurance that multisig accounts using their proprietary software are not susceptible to the vulnerability currently affecting the Parity wallet.

ICOs deployed after July 2017 may permanently lose access to their funds if they utilized Parity’s services for storing their coins, according to an article published by TechCrunch. Though there are currently no reports of lost or stolen coins, analysts estimate that at least 600,000 ETH have been made inaccessible due to the bug.

It is the second time this year that multisig wallets from Parity have experienced vulnerabilities in their implementation. In July, a similar bug led to 150,000 ETH being stolen from Parity-based wallets. Ambisafe closely followed the events, and even offered their support during this summer’s attack.

We take this as an opportunity to exercise perspective-taking.” said Oleksii Matiiasevych, Ethereum Engineer at Ambisafe.

From the beginning, Ambisafe’s implementations have been built with resilience in mind. This foresight paid off Wednesday, as they announced that ICOs using their wallets have been unaffected, and all of their coins remain accessible. Ambisafe is currently one of the only provider of multisig wallets that can be safely used to store Ethereum and other ERC20 tokens.

Ambisafe is an Ethereum token platform, providing token issuance services and related API’s. In addition to token creation, they offer a variety of ICO services, including engineering, design, and marketing. White label multi-sig wallets are one of the company’s most in-demand services. Ambisafe wallets are web based, with a mobile-ready api that allows for easy integration with mobile apps. ICOs by Ambisafe are visible on their custom blockchain explorer, and may benefit from instant liquidity.

Branded wallets from Ambisafe focus on user security, offering SecondFactor authentication, secure password recovery, and multisig. All white label wallets feature customizable design and branding, the ability to store multiple Token assets in each user’s wallet, an internal bitcoin exchange, and a variety of merchant tools for integrating payments online.

SmartOne Marketplace Brings Lawyers to the Blockchain in Groundbreaking ICO

Bitcoin Press Release: SmartOne launches LEGAL token ICO on November 15 to offer access to legal services to the extended cryptocurrency community.

November 9, 2017, Vaduz, LiechtensteinThe world’s first blockchain based marketplace for legal services SmartOne, aims to deliver access to legal services for the crypto community. Lawyers and firms will be able to offer virtual legal advice following the LEGAL token ICO beginning on the 15th of November 2017. Early participants will receive a 10% bonus during the whitelisting phase while the project advances fast into setting a new legal status quo for the blockchain.

Efficient access to the law
SmartOne aims to become the legal voice of the crypto community by undertaking research and development, publishing articles and entering into dialogue with regulators. The goal: set a new standard for the legal clarification of ICOs and blockchain-based projects worldwide.
The first step towards regulation is having access to suitable legal services. By ‘suitable’, SmartOne means services offered by lawyers who understand the blockchain and that are not charged on a timed basis. Instead, the law firms registered are prompted to automation in order to deliver their services as quickly and efficiently as possible.

LEGAL token; correcting the wrong
Without vital legal services, crypto enterprises are exposed to greater risks and are less able to engage with regulators. Consequently, it becomes difficult or even impossible for them to access the world’s financial and capital markets. In turn, this reduces funding and slows innovation.

As an experienced group of legal and crypto experts, the team at SmartOne could see that the legal industry had failed to adapt to the needs of the crypto sector, holding back this fast-moving and innovative world. By creating their LEGAL token ‘LGL’, SmartOne hopes to bridge the gap between the two and aid mainstream adoption of blockchain technology and the emergence of the crypto ecosystem.

A smart solution
SmartOne is looking to address the legal issues the cryptocurrency industry is facing today by taking an all-encompassing approach and offer access to well-designed and relevant legal services.

The LEGAL token is the backbone of the SmartOne marketplace that will help bringing the legal and crypto communities together. The SmartOne Foundation, which underpins the entire enterprise, ensures that revenues from LGL’s success are ploughed back into both the development of crypto-suitable legal services and the SmartOne protocol. This cycle means that SmartOne will continue to play a role in the innovation and development of legal services for the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector.
