Caviar Announces Real Estate and Crypto Backed Token, Crowdfunding Platform. Pre-Sale Begins November 28, 2017

Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain startup Caviar has announced the launch of its real estate-backed digital asset platform. Caviar’s token reduces the risk for backers through diversification of cryptocurrencies and real estate debt, while facilitating crowdfunding of real estate projects. Pre-sale begins November 28, 2017.

1 November 2017, The Cayman Islands – Caviar is pioneering a dual-purpose token and crowdfunding platform built on the Ethereum blockchain. Caviar’s token offers access to stable real estate and cryptocurrencies, with built-in downside protection and automatic diversification. The team behind Caviar has successfully managed a multi-million-dollar real estate debt fund since 2013, and brings years of experience and research to this project. Caviar is powered by Intelligent Predictive Model (IPM), an artificial intelligence algorithm, allowing for stronger predictive power and more effective asset allocation. In addition, Caviar Platform will allow real estate developers to raise funds for their upcoming projects, and for Caviar token holders to earn additional rewards by staking their tokens. Caviar is launching a pre-sale on November 28th, 2017, with the goal of raising $25 million.

Caviar Leverages Rising Value of Cryptocurrency with Increasing Demand for Real Estate

Global real estate equate to over 60% of all mainstream assets, and are worth over $217 trillion dollars. In comparison, the total cryptocurrency market capitalization recently hit a new all-time high when it surpassed $175 billion. “Considering these factors, the potential financial benefits of a real estate backed cryptocurrency are massive,” comments Caviar partner Guy Neumann.

In the past several years, cryptocurrencies have been outperforming most other asset classes. However, diversification within this asset class is problematic. There is high correlation to Bitcoin and to other cryptocurrencies. This new asset class is also highly volatile, illiquid and often not backed by anything tangible.

Caviar partner Alex Shvayetsky explains how Caviar aims to mitigate risk for backers and address the issue of diversification, stating:

Diversification of cryptocurrency investments is difficult because most assets are highly correlated. Caviar aims to solve this by providing exposure to fast-growing crypto assets and income producing US-based real estate in a single token – minimizing risk and maximizing returns in both asset classes.”

Caviar Capital: Successful Real Estate Track Record Outperforms S&P by 300%

Caviar combines large cap and most stable cryptocurrencies, select new token projects, and real estate, utilizing its’ proprietary Intelligent Predictive Model in order to perfectly time investment decisions. Caviar is the successor to Caviar Capital, which, in the past five years, successfully financed dozens of redevelopment projects and has a 0% default rate, 0 late payments and an average IRR (internal rate of return) of 16% per year. Since its inception, Caviar Capital has consistently outperformed S&P 500 Real Estate and S&P 500 Bond indices by over 300%

Higher Returns for Real Estate Investment & Diversified Portfolios for Traditional Investors with Digital Currency

By combining crypto assets and real estate, Caviar aims to offer a higher rate of return than traditional real estate investments, while maximizing downside protection. In addition, Caviar will provide traditional investors with the financial benefits of a more diversified portfolio that includes digital currencies.

Although cryptocurrency traders can profit from the volatility of the market, they are offered little in the way of real assets. Caviar provides a unique opportunity for crypto-investors to diversify their portfolio through exposure to real estate. Caviar’s tokenization approach to investments in real estate, cryptocurrencies and crypto-assets lowers the cost of management, reduces entry costs for investors, and removes the problem of illiquidity associated with traditional real estate investments. With the rising value of the cryptocurrency market and the increasing demand for real estate in a growing world, Caviar could turn out to be the perfect diversified portfolio.

The Tech Behind the Token

Caviar has developed their Intelligent Predictive Model (IPM), an artificial intelligence predictive algorithm based on a machine learning approach for price forecasting in both short and long-term projection timescales, allowing for stronger predictive power and more effective asset allocation. IPM uses historical data and a mixture of qualitative/quantitative metrics, in combination with analysis of the underlying cryptocurrency ecosystem, social signals, and trends. Data is automatically collected from various sources to make judgments in real time.

Blockchain Startup Human Discovery Platform Announces Revolutionary Changes to Digital Self-Improvement Market in New Whitepaper

Bitcoin Press Release: The Human Discovery Platform has proudly announced the release of its new whitepaper. HPD’s system will address issues within the self-improvement industry, offer transparency through digitalization of methods of human analysis from various sciences, blockchain-based architecture, and native HD-tokens.

31 October, Moscow, Russia – Moscow-based blockchain startup Human Discovery Platform, is a  decentralized system that studies and approves ‘methodics’ (a method known as personal data interpretation tests) for personality analysis for digital products. The company’s recent whitepaper outlines how it aims to address numerous issues for tech entrepreneurs, authors of methodics, and their backers. Human Discovery Platform developers are working on the system, which will launch to the public in June 2018.

The typical players of self-improvement industry like coaches or consultants have been around for ages, but the new trend in the industry is a shift towards digital services and mobile applications.

Integration of methods of personality analysis into the services is a major challenge, as it allows services to provide users with highly personalized recommendations based on the detailed personal information.

There is currently a huge gulf between the authors of methodics – psychologists, consultants, scientists – and entrepreneurs, who develop services. Entrepreneurs attempting to purchase a methodic for a service application are required to undergo a series of legal stages, pay taxes and various other commission charges. Individuals wishing to sponsor an author are also required to meet the required legislative requirements, especially if they are citizens of different states. Authors of methodics have also undergone a fairly high degree of scrutiny in the media, with the science behind the methodics of the self-development industry frequently coming into question.  

If authors were given the ability to create their methodics in an open, transparent and accessible way, they could provide a broader array of offerings, ranging from decentralized dating apps to HR-services. Human Discovery Platform’s whitepaper explains how the company will solve the problems of approbation, through the monetization of methodics for personality analysis, data storage and provide regulation for interaction between entrepreneurs, authors of methodics and their backers.

The Human Discovery Platform will enable all authors to install their own methodic into the system by creating a block, which is located on nodes and execute a code of analysis.

The Human Discovery Platform will create complex methodics by combining blocks of various authors. For example, if the author wants to translate his methodics, he can put the translation block in front of his block. Blocks are similar to smart contracts, loaded by authors into a blockchain-network, and executed on decentralized nodes. The decentralized design of the platform ensures that the author’s data used for the methodic will be stored safely and not vulnerable to any one point of failure.

Implementing Blockchain technology in this field also alleviates any issue of mistrust, as each time the block executes request from the client, the blockchain-network records all incoming and outgoing data. This decentralized record doesn’t cover user’s personal data, so the results of the analysis are transparent, impersonal and available for verification. This way Human Discovery Platform will accumulate knowledge about human personality and behavior without being tied to a service that can go bankrupt or temporarily close down.

HD Tokens

The Human Discovery Platform ecosystem will run on its native HD-token, built on the Ethereum blockchain. HD-tokens will be issued in exchange for Ethereum and various other cryptocurrencies.

To conduct a request for an analysis of input data, the client will spend HD-tokens, which are later distributed between the authors of the blocks used by the client and the nodes on which the analysis code is executed.

A client can be an entrepreneur, with the ability to create a site or social network on the basis of the methodic. One advantage for entrepreneurs is that the platform will provide them with ready-to-use API of methodics, making it easier to launch the product based on it. The author of the methodic will also be able to create a contract for the backer who wants to sponsor the author, according to which part of the received HD-tokens from the block will be transferred to the backer. The platform is also expected to attract freelancers, who will serve needs of its participants and get HD-tokens in return.

Meet The Team
Timur Karimbaev (CEO),
Marat Nigametzyanov (Business Development Director)
Sergey Mikhailov (COO)

Timur, Marat and Sergey are known in Russia as co-founders of GetCourse, one of the largest services for the sale and delivery of online courses. The company’s revenue was $6 million in 2016. More than 1000 trainers and 9 million people are using GetCourse. The product level of GetCourse became a starting point of the Human Discovery Platform architecture.

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

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

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

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

For Startups and Entrepreneurs

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

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

For Investors

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

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

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

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

For Governments and Regulators

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

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

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

Global Guest Speakers in Attendance

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

XinFin Introduces Blockchain-based Institutional Financing Marketplace Alongside Pre-ICO Token Sale

Bitcoin Press Release: XinFin.org has announced the imminent release of its new institutional financing marketplace and XDC cryptocurrency pre-ICO token sale.

May 29, 2017, Singapore – Enterprise-grade blockchain solutions platform, XinFin is all set to launch its institutional financial marketplace. The platform, fueled by native XDC cryptotokens offers all the goodness of cryptocurrency systems through integration of smart contracts between buyers, sellers, and financiers. It also facilitates instant cross-border payments and settlements using XDC. As a part of its development roadmap, the platform has also announced the upcoming XDC Pre-ICO token sale where all interested parties can purchase some of the Xchange Infinite Development Contract (XDC) tokens.

XinFin, through its institutional financing marketplace, introduces blockchain technology to real-world applications involving various institutions, projects, and transactions. The platform is designed to address the existing issues between industries, financier rating systems, and real-time settlement mechanisms. In order to fit the evolving needs of various existing business models, the XinFin team has incorporated several changes to the Ethereum open source architecture. These changes have resulted in the development of a blockchain infrastructure suitable for a private distributed network of participants spread across the world.

The growing XinFin network comprises of institutions seeking global or local procurements for their projects and suppliers with proven products capable of meeting the requirements, but lack sufficient reputation for financier backing.

Benefits of XinFin Blockchain Marketplace

The XinFin team has listed four specific benefits of blockchain technology which are leveraged by its marketplace for the following reasons;

a. To be an instant cross-border settlement mechanism through its native token XDC
b. To map smart contracts to real world contracts
c. To use XDC to incentivize financiers to fund projects with low buyer and seller rating
d. To build an equity exchange over XDC for projects that want to raise capital

The Head of Marketing for XinFin Alex Mathbeck, explaining the implementation of smart contracts for real-world applications said,

“We have interest from hospitals looking to acquire machinery, low-income countries who want to build their tourism spots, counties seeking efficient farming equipment, new techniques and cheaper ways to build rural roads and transport, and farming institutions that want training and e-learning programs or alternative ways to hedge weather risks.

Our team of over 30 financiers worldwide is working on mapping smart contracts to real-world contracts and laying the groundwork for all stakeholders to get the projects underway.”

Global supply chain financing today is either dependent on the ratings of sellers and buyers. There is no way to execute promising pilot projects based only on project viability with a low or non-existent buyer and seller ratings. Also, the lack of global real-time settlement and financing mechanisms makes it hard for both project creators and financiers to implement and fund the potential high-risk projects respectively.

Xinfin.org platform incentivizes the financiers by giving smart-exchange facility over XDC for equity investments and risk-hedging through the underlying inflation proof XDC token. The company’s target is to bridge the global $5 trillion infrastructure financing gap that has created a huge disparity between the rich and the poor. Currently, traditional fiat currency financing mechanisms allow projects with high rated buyers and suppliers to leverage their ratings multiple times. However, it totally ignores viable projects with a low or non-existent buyer and seller ratings.

Alex also explained the reasoning behind the choice to run XDC on its own private distributed network, stating,

“The latency time of public blockchains like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other crypto coins makes it difficult to build any real-time payments dependent use case. We see great promise in the architecture that has followed, and XDC will be run on a private distributed network. It takes only 5 seconds to complete a transaction on the XinFin XDC network.”

The decentralized blockchain-based marketplace will not just be limited to the institutions but will also be open for individuals who want to take up the leadership in identifying and initiating projects, crowdsourcing for support and completing the trade and finance over the xinfin.org XDC network.

The underlying blockchain uses proof-of-stake mining, though a large portion of XDC has been pre-mined. The mining will be available to credible institutions worldwide. The architecture is derived from the Ethereum open source platform; However, it is entirely independent of ether and gas. Xinfin.org is releasing open APIs to use XDC as a settlement and payment mechanism for global remittances, reward points and trading of unutilized inventories.

About XinFin

The Xinfin Foundation is building a strong team of over 100 financiers, blockchain programmers, functional experts and business development personnel all over the world and all the team bios will be available at the time of marketplace launch. The project has opened its pre-ICO token offerings in limited numbers for its early backers. The native blockchain token XDC, powering the xinfin.org platform is being listed on various exchanges.
