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.

ARK Becomes France’s First Cryptocurrency SCIC

November 29, 2017, Lons-Le-Saunier, France — ARK Ecosystem is now incorporated in France as a cooperative society (SCIC), registered under n° 833 439 300, with a structure matching our open source blockchain organization. It is the first of its kind in the crypto world, and one of the first blockchain projects to incorporate in the European Union.

SCIC is the French acronym for “General Interest Co-operatives”. It is a new private, common interest co-operative which allows anyone — employees, users, volunteers, public bodies, companies, associations —to act together in a legal framework to govern an entity.

All SCIC members are shareholders and will belong to of one of the statutory categories : Founders, Advisers, or Employees.

The vote principle is : 1 shareholder = 1 vote.

The ARK crew, being initial share holders, will choose the Executive Board of the legal entity, which permits ARK to continue the current board structure.

A long process

ARK decided on the SCIC after working with their legal team and evaluating different options for creating a legal entity. After deciding that incorporating through the Swiss Foundation — a popular option for blockchain projects — was not the best choice for ARK, the team turned to France.

There, they found the SCIC incorporation process. According to the team, that option had almost everything they had been looking for in terms of incorporation.

As a SCIC, ARK will be able to structure corporate governance based on a board of directors and input from the ARK community. Additionally, SCIC incorporation allows ARK to establish a well-defined structure without legal ambiguities related to capital gains and taxation.

Through its SCIC status, the ARK board of directors — except for founders and employees — can name additional shareholders. These new shareholders can also be appointed to the supervisory board, as provided for in the charter. The charter may be amended as often as necessary.

In French Law, the SCIC format also allows public institutions to become shareholders if seen fit by the board.

As a common interest benefit company, an SCIC must keep at least 52.5% of the company’s profits as legal reserves. In the case of Ark, there is no plan to do any distribution of profits to shareholders. Therefore, it will hold 100% of any profits for use in development, marketing, and operations.

An exciting road ahead

This establishment of ARK’s SCIC in France is not only the first of its kind, but it will also bolster the credibility of cryptocurrency in France, the European Union, and the rest of the world.

The prospect of ARK and its SCIC formation has attracted the interest and enthusiasm of some regulatory institutions. During this process, ARK was invited by the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) —the French regulatory body for financial markets — and the Banque de France (National Bank of France) to present the ARK Project and explain the conditions of the ARK TEC. The discussion was in-depth and encouraging. Conversing with the AMF on how to best comply with French laws resulted in a positive two way conversation with the French government.

The team at ARK is proud to play a part in France becoming a crypto-friendly environment, and proud to be the leaders in this huge step forward in cryptocurrency adoption. And now that the SCIC is finalized, the team will be able to expand and advanced the ARK blockchain technology, which will provide more opportunities for all.

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%

Knowledge.io’s “Proof of Knowledge” Helps Learners Prove Their Value

Bitcoin Press Release Learning solutions startup Knowledge.io has revealed the world’s first blockchain-based platform to measure the value of knowledge, with two months to its pre-sale event on January 15th,2018. The Knowledge platform features a unique ecosystem that shares and rewards knowledge encouraged by gamified learning.

November 21, 2017 Ohio, USA – Knowledge.io’s revolutionary platform could be the new standard for measuring the true worth of knowledge. Its platform will spur the promotion of knowledge exchange between knowledge sharers and producers, while rewarding their interactions within the network – powering a decentralized ecosystem of knowledge sharing networks.

Central to the Knowledge platform is the gamification of learning, an educational approach to maximize enjoyment and engagement by capturing the interest of learners and inspiring them to continue learning.

The problem of proving education

Employers and industries recognize knowledge’s value – this is becoming increasingly clear in a sweeping change to the way national economies are looking at the intangible asset of knowledge, be it in the form of knowledge-based sectors down to the so-called catchphrase of human capital.

For the longest time, formal education has been the yard stick of knowledge. From pre-school certificates to high school diplomas, moving on to higher or tertiary education represented by college and university degrees, the quantity of knowledge acquired by individuals is measured on a piece of paper. And the quality, inferred to by the reputation and prestige of the certificate’s issuing body. Yet this system presents several shortfalls.

Firstly, there are different standards to which these qualifications are issued, often at the discretion of the issuing bodies and with no real way for anyone to verify if the person possessing it truly has attained that level of knowledge – or even the details of that knowledge. If a group of people graduating from the same year all have the same qualification, the only way to go deeper is to request for grades, which can be a lengthy and cumbersome process.

 

Secondly, as the quality of education is attached to reputation and prestige of the issuing institution, the cost of pursuing education there is significantly higher. In fact, the cost of higher education is increasing worldwide, anyway, and students are forced into higher debts each year. British students ran up study debts of $55,000 in 2016, up from only $20,000 five years ago. American students recorded an average of $35,000 last year, up 6% from 2015.

What this means is that, those who can’t afford quality education may never own a degree – and never be able to prove the knowledge they have.

Knowledge.io’s Knowledge Score as proof of knowledge

Within the Knowledge platform, users validate each other’s knowledge and expertise, earning Knowledge tokens as a reward for providing knowledge. All this is validated through gamified learning and verification of expertise.

The Knowledge Score technology will then be used to assign values to each participant, objectively evaluating their levels of knowledge across a range of topics. Complemented by vast, proprietary data sets available through its partnerships and a base of over 10 million questions across a topic spectrum, the possibilities are virtually limitless to generate a continuous supply of Questions and Answers.

Thanks to blockchain innovation, a user’s learning is validated, tracked and record permanently over the course of their life. This provides a dual opportunity for future generations of learners who can earn tokens to pay for education and build up a Knowledge Score that will be a recognized standard of evidencing their knowledge.

Knowledge.io and the Knowledge Tokens

Knowledge.io has its conceptual origins in the recognition, rewarding and celebration of knowledge. It considers that all knowledge is valuable not only to the individual that possesses it but to the society that benefits from interacting with that knowledge.

The platform centres around gamified interaction between all knowledge stakeholders from creators such as students and users, to sharers such as educators, and to consumers such as employers and industries. This model of incentivization will not only accurate measure knowledge but spur the development and propagation of knowledge deemed to be the basis of educational, economic and social progress.

To support its goal of combining blockchain innovation with knowledge sharing, Knowledge.io will begin its crowdsale campaign with a pre-sale on 15 January, 2018, about two months from now.

10% of the total Knowledge Token supply (25 million) will be made available during the pre-sale, while a further 20% (50 million) will be put up for sale during the main public ICO to be announced at a later date.

NITRO – First Cryptocurrency Backed by a Public Company & Supported by Video-Games Business With 348 Million Smartphone Users Announces ICO

Bitcoin Press Release: Australian Blockchain innovators NITRO , a subsidiary of iCandy Interactive LTD, look set to fast-forward the videogames industry via their NITRO marketplace. NITRO offer details about their upcoming ICO, scheduled for late November.

Melbourne, Australia, 19th November: NITRO is an online cryptocurrency project which was created to solve many of the inherent problems of the videogames industry, and is the first cryptocurrency project in the world which is backed by a publicly listed company (independently verified by DealStreetAsia.com). NITRO was created by the founders and management of iCandy Interactive Limited, southeast Asia’s leading mobile entertainment group listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. NITRO involves the creation of an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency; NITRO Token, or NOX, and an integrated marketplace, the NITRO Marketplace.

A Unique Proposition Backed by Existing Award-Winning Business

NITRO has a compelling and unique proposition compared to many emerging cryptocurrencies which are often just concepts and prototypes with no existing business or track records. In contrast, NITRO is backed by iCandy Interactive, which is an existing award-winning game business with many prominent institutional shareholders. iCandy has been in the business of developing and publishing games for more than 6 years and it has an existing community of more than 348m million smartphone users (bolstered by its recent acquisition of Animoca Brands’ games portfolio). NITRO Token will be introduced into games developed and published by iCandy, potentially setting it up for early adoption within the 348-million strong gamers community on day one. This proposition significantly reduces the risk of business plan execution of NITRO, compared to other cryptocurrency projects.

Holistic Approach to Solving Problems of Ecosystem

The video-game industry is a US$100 billion industry annually and the nature of the industry is prone to disruption by cryptocurrency technology. There are a quite a few video-game related cryptocurrency projects that had garnered THE interest of the cryptocurrency community globally. However, NITRO is among the most credible and most extensive cryptocurrencies for the video-game industry to date.

NITRO seeks a holistic, end-to-end approach to solve the complex challenges of the video-game ecosystem with the blockchain technology. In its current form, NITRO has considered the interests of all stakeholders of the video-game industry, from gamers, game studios, publishers to financiers.

One of the key features of NITRO is that gamers and speculators can easily become holders of NITRO token to participate in the booming video-game economy. This is democratizing the participation of the video games economy as up until now it is almost impossible for an average person to participate and benefit from the video games economy. Gamers will be able to use one cryptocurrency in all games on NITRO Marketplace for in-game purchases, get incentive in engagement, participate in the game development process and ultimately get rewards from the industry economy as token holders. Publishers and game studios will get marketing access to the audience of gamers in an efficient and transparent manner.

Backed by Prominent VCs , Internet Unicorn and Developers Network

NITRO is backed by 3 established venture capital funds from Singapore in the form of shareholders of iCandy Interactive, which includes Fatfish Internet Group, Incubate fund and BB fund (a dedicated blockchain fund by fintech VC Life.Sreda). iCandy’s other shareholders include internet conglomerate Baidu ($60 billion Chinese Internet company) and the Global Mobile Developer Confederation (GMGC), one of the most influential games developer networks in China. The NITRO project is conceived and built by video-games industry veterans with successful business track records in the video-game and venture capital industry. These track records will translate into know-how that will be invaluable in building a sustainable business model that will benefit all NOX token-holders.

Token Designed for Both Utility and to Reward Holders

NITRO funded games and other third-party games can use the Nitro Marketplace and its API to transact with gamers, especially those of the 348-million smartphone gamers base of iCandy Interactive. The efficiency of the blockchain technology will allow micropayment to happen efficiently in almost real-time in games and the marketplace. Gamers will be encouraged to utilise the NOX sub-token, NOD, to purchase virtual items and power-packs of games with added incentives such as lower pricing structure and unique offerings that are differentiated from fiat currency payment. This will drive considerable use of the NITRO token in the existing gamers community of iCandy Interactive.

On the development end of the proposition NITRO will fund the development of game titles from its token sale proceeds and funded games will share revenue up to 20-30% of their revenue with NITRO over a period of 5 years from the date of funding. 60% of the receipts will be used to replenish the funding pool for games, while the remaining 40% will be used for marketing and operating costs. To foster the adoption of NITRO, NITRO will distribute rewards in the form of NOX to holders based on their level of participation on games published on NITRO Marketplace. NITRO will buyback NOX from the market to replenish the Reward Pool from time to time; enhancing the value of NOX

Potential Disruptive ICO-Capital Market Model

With the increasing interest around ICO’s, it is becoming important for an ICO project to be supported by credible companies and individuals. In the rapidly-changing crypto-sphere, there is an emergence of an enhanced ICO model, where credible mainstream companies use ICO’s to launch new funding initiatives in a professionally managed framework. This is the first time a company listed on a major international stock exchange is actively backing a cryptocurrency project. It could pave the way for a new trend of mainstream public companies using ICO’s to launch new funding initiatives in parallel to the capital markets that they are trading in.  The NITRO project could potentially be a test case for ICOs to disrupt the US$100 trillion per year capital markets.

Initial Coin Offering (ICO) of NITRO Token

NITRO Token, as a cryptocurrency, will be made available to interested contributors via an online sale. A pre-sale will be conducted from 19th November till 23rd November 2017 After the pre-sale the main ICO will begin on 1st December 2017. All sales will conducted online via NITRO’s website at www.nitro.live .There will be up to 60 million NOX available for sale, raising up to 75,000 Ethereum (ETH), carrying a value of approximately US$22 million at today’s prevailing Ethereum price.

Viuly’s VIU Token Airdrop to One Million Ethereum Wallets Begins, Trading Starts November 19th

Bitcoin Press Release: Viuly’s mission to disrupt the online video sharing industry is now well underway, with an ongoing massive airdrop campaign distributing some 500 million VIU tokens to an estimated 1 million Ethereum holders. The mass distribution will allow VIU token holders to transfer value within Viuly’s decentralized blockchain-based video platform at https://viuly.io.

November 17, 2017 Tallin, Estonia – Online video solutions firm Viuly is now in the midst of a large-scale airdrop campaign, distributing its native VIU tokens to all qualifying Ethereum wallets.

From the Ethereum blockchain snapshot taken on November 5, Ethereum addresses holding between 0.1 to 3,000 ETH were identified as eligible for the automated airdrop. Since November 12, the Viuly team has been distributing tokens at a rate of 20 VIU for every 1 ETH held in these wallets (capped at 60,000 VIU).

VIU tokens will also begin trading on popular Bitcoin and cryptocurrency trading platform Bit-z on the 19th of November.

Once completed on November 21, the campaign expects to have culminated in a complete distribution of 500 million VIU tokens to 1 million unique personal Ethereum wallets. This strategy of widest possible distribution to active users hopes to achieve accelerated adoption of Viuly’s revolutionary video sharing platform.

Try Viuly and see the future of how people will share and watch videos online
The current industry of online video sharing is a highly centralized one, controlled by major centralized platforms that act as middlemen between advertisers, content creators and users. Through decentralization, Viuly’s platform eliminates high commissions from ad revenues and places control of content within the network itself.

As a result, creators earn more from higher ad revenue, advertisers get better value from efficient marketing and users are rewarded with a share of revenues. Without centralized censorship to restrict content and limit viewing, authors gain creative freedom and users have free access.
Through blockchain innovation, the platform is based on the IPFS protocol, featuring a fully-decentralized distributed network of data storage that compensates individuals for storage. There is no more shared control centers, no more single point of failure.

About Viuly
Viuly’s mission is to disrupt the multi-billion dollar industry of online video sharing with its blockchain-based solution. Through decentralization and transparency, it aims to create a fair and open video network operating on an equitable model of revenue sharing.

VIU tokens are the native currency powering the Viuly video platform. They are used to transfer value between advertisers, content creators and users.

Viuly will be a full-fledged platform for users and content creators to share and watch videos, while immediately earning rewards for their interactions. This revolutionary ecosystem will enable a fair, unrestricted environment to share, watch, and upload any content.

Viuly’s revolutionary blockchain solution has already led to a firm backing of EUR 150,000 from Ukraine-based blockchain investor Krypton Capital. Together with Krypton Capital’s “smart money” philosophy, Viuly aims to establish strong ecosystems of related companies to grow values and revenues together.

Blockchain Music Platform VOISE Joins Ethereum Enterprise Alliance

Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain music startup VOISE is the latest member of the Ethereum Enterprise Alliance (EEA), the largest open source blockchain alliance in the world. With direct access to some of the most talented Ethereum professionals within a network of Fortune 500 alumni, the VOISE mission to decentralize music is set to benefit from expert advice and networking.

November 15, 2017 Barcelona, Spain  – Less than a month after launching its much anticipated platform, decentralized music pioneer Voise has now joined the prestigious Ethereum Enterprise Alliance (EEA) as a full member.

The EEA membership now places Voise in the same standing with some of the most reputable global companies in a diverse range of fields such as management consulting, the energy industry, academia and blockchain and financial technology.  This relationship will enable the start up to network and engage directly with the likes of Bancor, Credit Suisse, British Petroleum, Deloitte, Intel, JP Morgan, Microsoft, Thomson Reuters and many more.

This latest development will be seen as a crucial step in gaining recognition and wider influence for the Swiss-based start up, with EEA being a valuable partnership opportunity through its endeavour in developing decentralized solutions for enterprises. With the company’s pioneering efforts in eliminating middle parties in the global music streaming industry, EEA and Voise will now be able to synergize expertise towards a common advancement of the Ethereum protocol.

Disrupting the global online music industry

Musicians and labels everywhere are retreating from conventional album sales, looking instead to online avenues where more than 110 million customers are already paying for their music. However, independent artists in particular, continue to struggle with the high costs of distributions, as major centralized platforms charge them between 15% to 40% of revenue generated from paid downloads*. Streaming services take even larger cuts, compounding the problem of an unfair model of revenue distribution that shortchanges artists.

This is where Voise comes in. Building on previous attempts at developing complex blockchain-based and decentralized platforms, the Voise solution focuses on simplicity. It will be easy to use for mainstream users, allowing both crypto and fiat payments to cater to crypto users and average music listeners, with options to deposit and withdraw to their wallets either in Voise tokens or ETH.

From the homepage, users can directly access popular music, top downloads or find new music from a thematic search engine categorized by favorite artists or genres. They can also access Radio DAO to discover the latest top performers and get first-hand updates on Voise developments.

Music artists themselves can easily upload songs and albums at a price of their own choosing, while leveraging a rich profile section to gather new fans. The platform also supports free-of-cost models that allow artists to earn from donations instead.

Rapid developments on the Voise platform

From conceptual idea to a working alpha product, Voise has made solid progress on development and delivery, with an eye firmly trained on its founding objective to deliver an artist-focused, truly decentralized platform by replacing commission-heavy business models. It believes that all revenue from music content should remain with its creators – the music artists who prop up the entire industry.

Its development roadmap has also been updated to reflect new partnerships and soon-to-be available platform features including an artist verification system and search engine. Prepared to keep up with  industry relevance, Voise also intends to create a South Korean music community to attract investment from an emerging market with global aspirations.

With endorsements from Grammy-nominated Carolyn Malachi and DJ sensation Jinco, Voise has also firmed up its business viability with partnerships with prestigious companies including MicroMoney and Coinomi.

These developments have resulted in bullish sentiment for its institutionalized VOISE tokens, as evidenced by its growing market capitalization on CoinMarketCap. Already recognized for their intrinsic value, VOISE tokens are recording steady trading volumes thanks to successful listings on many leading cryptocurrency exchanges including Bit-z, CoinExchange and LiveCoin.

Dutch Political Impasse Helps Blockchain Ticketing Venture GUTS Raise $2.5 Million in Hours

Bitcoin Press Release: Amsterdam-based GUTS look set to strike back at ticket gougers with their revolutionary Blockchain-based ecosystem, which has seen immediate support with over $2.5 Million raised within the first few hours of their ongoing ICO.

15th November 2017, Amsterdam, Netherlands A staggering display of political inability to solve the problems with secondary ticketing is helping Amsterdam-based blockchain ticketing company GUTS in their mission to create a worldwide honest ticketing market. At the moment a law 6 years in the making was diluted by lobbyists ensuring the protection of reseller profits, GUTS launched their ICO, raising over $2.5m in the first few hours. GUTS plan to raise almost 17.5 million dollars with their ICO which will commence on 15th of November.


Award winning
GUTS have been selling tickets via the blockchain since 2016, and have an impressive track record. They struck a deal with theatre powerhouse Hekwerk in Holland and they enlisted the manager of the no. 1 DJ in the world Martin Garrix and Chris Payne from the world-renowned Adèle and Maroon 5 booking agency ITB in London to assist them in getting their product adapted internationally. With the current deals in place GUTS are projected to sell over a million tickets in 2019.

It was only after GUTS launched its’ application that they considered doing an Initial Coin Offering:

We were looking for ways to extend the impact of the product and came to the conclusion that building a protocol that is fuelled by our very own token and opening it up for all ticketing companies to use, was the way to go” states the CEO of GUTS, Maarten Bloemers.

Another big advantage is the capital that is being raised within the project:

There are a lot of forces that are trying to keep the status quo on secondary ticketing. There is a lot of money being made by people who will go to great lengths to protect their interests. The raised capital of the ICO ensures our independence while accomplishing our mission for a worldwide honest ticketing market.”

The GET-protocol, upon which the GUTS ecosystem is built on, is fueled by the GET-token. The protocol uses the token to process event ticketing. Every time an event is created, the protocol buys GET from token holders to process the event through a stability fund. As long as events are being created within the protocol, token holders can sell their tokens to the protocol at a guaranteed exchange rate of 0.58 dollars.

We think the guaranteed exchange rate of the tokens mitigates risks for early contributors. As long as they are confident GUTS or other ticketing companies are creating events within the GET-protocol, there is very little risk of losing their money.”

GUTS ICO & Token Sale

GUTS has already completed the initial round of fundraising for their ecosystem, having raised $2.5m. In total, GUTS seek to raise roughly $17.5m from their ICO, which is now approaching tier 1 of the main ICO, which will open on the 15th November, at 13:00 CET. Early backers will be able to pick up GET at a discounted rate, depending on how early backers contribute. There are a total of 28,348,649 GET remaining from a total pool of 36,900,000 GET.

Knowledge.io to launch blockchain-based platform to revolutionize the way knowledge is valued

Bitcoin Press Release: Digital learning company Knowledge.io has announced plans to develop a first-of-its-kind blockchain-based platform that aims to quantify and qualify the value of knowledge. To raise the funds necessary for continued development and adoption of its solution, Knowledge.io will launch an ICO for its Knowledge Tokens on January 15th, 2018.

November 11, 2017 Ohio, USA – Knowledge.io aims to revolutionize the way the world values knowledge, with a blockchain-based knowledge sharing platform that will power decentralized knowledge sharing networks, enabling greater exchange between knowledge sharers and rewarding participants for their interactions across a diverse range of sectors.

Knowledge.io co-founder Steven Englander explained the company’s goal to democratize knowledge-sharing through an incentivized model:

“By rewarding people with Knowledge tokens, we are able to provide a decentralized knowledge sharing ecosystem where knowledge flows between advertisers, partners, and users for the benefit of the entire community’s decision making in areas such as commerce, education, and employment.”

The growing importance of the knowledge industry

Global economies have come to recognize the importance of the “knowledge-based economy” that emphasizes the production, distribution and use of knowledge. Still reeling from the effects of the last global financial crisis, many national economies, such as that of the UK, have diverted investments from tangible to intangible assets, of which knowledge-based sectors are part. The impact of knowledge on developing economies is even more pronounced, with OECD reporting that knowledge-intensive sectors such as education and information accounting for more than 50% of major OECD economies’ GDP.*

Within the knowledge industry itself, modern enterprises work hard to narrow the gap between knowledge producers and economies. Some major platforms focus on the aspect of workforce, connecting employers and knowledge workers, allowing users to market themselves within industry networks through user-generated content such as skill-based insights and testimonials. Others facilitate knowledge sharing, through open networks of community-identified experts, rated and moderated within the networks.

These emerging industries are seeing significant income, largely in part to advertising revenues. LinkedIn recently reported revenues close to $1 billion in Q3 2016, with 25% of that coming from advertising. Quora, valued at $1.8 billion, also started ad monetizing in 2016.

Recognized but underappreciated

While the recognition of knowledge is certainly increasing, the global economy has fallen short of appreciating the true value of knowledge as represented in people, otherwise referred to as human capital. The Human Capital Index 2016 bluntly revealed that “the global economy has failed more than a third of the world’s talent”, despite the strengthening correlation between economies’ income levels and their capacity to develop and deploy knowledge via human capital.

Even the modern enterprises of the knowledge industry fall short, with centralized platforms retaining most or all of the revenue generated from the knowledge producers and sharers using their platforms. The few that do reward users – Steemit, for example – are still unable to provide a way to properly measure the quantity and quality of knowledge shared.

Another shortfall is the ownership of knowledge – users on all these platforms do not retain ownership or exert control over their content. Their knowledge risks being sold on to providers, advertisers and recruiters.

As the world transitions to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, there is a growing urgency for educators and employers to fundamentally rethink the way it values knowledge.

The Knowledge.io solution to value and reward knowledge

Knowledge.io envisions a future e-Learning rewards-based platform that has the appreciation of knowledge at its core – celebrating it and rewarding it.

It introduces a revolutionary way for people to validate each other’s knowledge and expertise, while connecting experts with advertisers who will conduct transactions with Knowledge tokens. These tokens are rewarded for providing knowledge and can be used to pay for products within the Knowledge.io ecosystem that validates through gamified learning and verification of expertise.

Levels of knowledge possessed by users in particular topics will be represented by the Knowledge Score technology. With a base of over 10 million questions across a topic spectrum, complemented by existing data partnerships with vast, proprietary data sets, Knowledge.io expects the generation of a virtually endless supply of topic-based Questions and Answers.

Beyond incentivization, another key benefit of the platform is that it tracks learning and records knowledge validation. Knowledge.io believes that this has far-reaching implications for future generations of learners, with opportunities for younger learners to earn enough tokens to pay for higher education and a Knowledge Score that will help prove to the world what they know.

Knowledge.io will launch its ICO on January 15th, 2018, offering up to 50,000,000 Knowledge tokens for sale to the general public. The crowdsale seeks to raise the funds needed for the continued development of its knowledge sharing platform, with the majority of proceeds dedicated to company growth.

About Knowledge.io

Knowledge.io has its conceptual origins in the recognition, rewarding and celebration of knowledge. It considers that all knowledge is valuable not only to the individual that possesses it but to the society that benefits from interacting with that knowledge.

Through a platform that integrates educators and employers with advocates and knowledge sharers, all knowledge participants can exchange and value knowledge through voluntary or gamified interaction. Knowledge.io believes that its solution will be the first able measure the value of knowledge, while its model of incentivization will aid the development and propagation of knowledge crucial to the improvement of education, economy and society.
