ChronoBank’s Mikhail Savchenko Joins as Advisor to Caviar – Crypto and Real Estate in One Token

Bitcoin Press Release: Crypto Innovator Joins Caviar Team of Global Advisors, Caviar Pre-Sale Runs until December 7th, Goal to Raise $25 Million

4 December 2017, The Cayman Islands – The Caviar team, who successfully launched their pre-sale December 1 with a pioneering approach to create a dual-purpose token and crowdfunding platform built on the Ethereum blockchain, announced that Mikhail (Mike) Savchenko, CTO of ChronoBank, has joined as an advisor. Caviar’s token offers access to stable real estate and cryptocurrencies, with built-in downside protection and automatic diversification. The pre-sale will run through December 7; and the crowdsale will begin on December 12 with the goal of raising $25 million.

Born with a ZX Spectrum in his hand, Savchenko is a veteran programmer with more than 20 years experience of software development, security and cryptography. His CV includes an MBA in IT Project Management and he has applied his skills to blockchain development since the early days of bitcoin. Most recently, he won a fintech hackathon at which he presented a trusted document exchange based on IPFS and Ethereum that forms a key part of ChronoBank’s functionality.

On joining the advisory team, why he thinks traditional investors need to ‘wake up to smell the crypto’ and what’s coming in 2018, Mike shared the following in a Caviar blog post:

  •     Why Caviar, Why Now for ICO: “I really like the idea of real estate tokenization. We’ve been discussing different options in that field many times. So when I got an offer to join Caviar’s team as an advisor, I accepted it immediately.”
  •     Caviar, a Project for Non-Cryptos & Cryptos Alike: “Caviar will make traditional market investors focus their attention  on the cryptocurrency world, while also making cryptocurrency market players focus their attention on real estate. I’m sure that both sides will win. Traditional investors should immediately pay attention before it is too late to join this new game.”
  •     What’s Coming for the Market in 2018: “Big financial institutions are going to join the cryptocurrency world this autumn, so I believe next year all bets will grow significantly.”

In addition to Savchenko, Caviar’s team of advisors includes the esteemed blockchain investment expert David Drake, Chairman of LDJ Capital; Ivan Labrie, a top trader on Tradingview.com; James Sowers, ICO Advisor, Angel Investor and Crypto Capitalist; Gabriel Jarrosson, a French entrepreneur, crypto investor and a founder of a private crypto investment group; NASA-recognized inventor and data scientist David Wirth; and James Jamil, Executive Director of the Wall Street Blockchain Alliance

We’re honored that Mike has joined our global team of advisors, further validating our approach to diversify cryptocurrency investments. ChronoBank is an impressive innovator and we’re excited to have Mike’s technical talent as well as market insights contributed to our project,” said Kirill Bensonoff, partner at Caviar.

LiveTree Launches reverse ICO to Disrupt the $500 billion Hollywood Industry

December 1, 2017, London, UK — LiveTree’s film, TV and content business captured 5% of the UK entertainment crowdfunding market in the last 2 years. It has fostered several high-profile partners including The British Film Institute, Red Rock Entertainment, the Screen Arts Institute, and 14,000 industry suppliers worldwide. The existing business will be migrated to LiveTree ADEPT.

LiveTree ADEPT is the next generation of the platform built on the learnings from the existing proven business. The new platform, ADEPT, goes beyond crowdfunding and utilizes the blockchain to lower fees, remove costly contracts, and introduce the world’s first end-to-end, blockchain based Digital Rights Management distribution platform ($500bn film, TV and content industry).

Built on Ethereum blockchain technology, the new platform captures market share through a token incentivized fan-community for film and TV distribution. It will raise up to $50 million through a token sale that started on Friday December 1st when a pre-sale of 35 million Seed Tokens (Symbol: SED) was launched. Visit ADEPT.livetree.com for more information.

LiveTree ADEPT is set to disrupt the $500bn entertainment industry using blockchain technology to empower fans and film makers with key features including:

Digital Rights Management: Owning and sharing video intellectual property will be moved to the blockchain. This opens possibilities for the general public to own what they watch and earn from profits derived from exploiting content distribution e.g. from subscriptions, pay-per-view, and advertising. New digital channel Blossom TV will be the destination for this community powered content.

Legal contracts involved in the production, financing and distribution of film, TV and content are often viewed as a burdensome and costly overhead. ADEPT replaces these contracts with blockchain based “smart contracts”. This reduces costs and fosters fan community gamification.

Digital Token: The Ethereum ECR20 “LiveTree Seed” digital token is set to replace subscription fees, legal fees and funding costs. The token encourages community growth by enabling fans to gamify the process of production, through sharing, participating and promoting the content they watch.

LiveTree ADEPT has a 5-year roadmap to capture market share. In addition to the ADEPT community approach, LiveTree will license films specifically for ADEPT through LiveTree Incubators fund, this is expected to generate significant Seed value. Incubators in LA, London and NYC will produce LiveTree Blossom TV “Originals” which will be used to further increase the value of the token, while promoting mainstream adoption of Blossom TV.

Leading​ ​Artificial​ ​Intelligence​ ​Startup​ ​Announces​ ​Further​ ​Innovation: BotChain​ ​to​ ​Make​ ​Enterprise​ ​Bots​ ​Auditable​ ​and​ ​Compliant

Boston,​ ​MA​, ​December 1st,​ ​2017​ ​—​ ​Announcing​ ​its​ ​utility​ ​token​ ​sale​ ​this​ ​week,​ ​Talla,​ ​a​ ​leader in​ ​enterprise​ ​A.I.​ ​software,​ ​today​ ​shared​ ​the​ ​development​ ​of​ ​their​ ​new​ ​BotChain​ ​network.​ ​After two​ ​years​ ​and​ ​over​ ​2500​ ​installations​ ​of​ ​Talla​ ​bots​ ​at​ ​various​ ​companies,​ ​Talla​ ​recognized​ ​the need​ ​for​ ​compliant​ ​enterprise​ ​bots​ ​and​ ​for​ ​bot​ ​actions​ ​to​ ​be​ ​audited​ ​and​ ​inspected.

As​ ​artificial​ ​intelligence​ ​makes​ ​agents​ ​and​ ​bots​ ​more​ ​autonomous,​ ​and​ ​reinforcement​ ​learning makes​ ​them​ ​more​ ​unpredictable,​ ​the​ ​need​ ​to​ ​constrain​ ​and​ ​capture​ ​their​ ​actions​ ​for​ ​training, auditing,​ ​and​ ​compliance​ ​becomes​ ​more​ ​urgent.​ ​BotChain​ ​works​ ​by​ ​creating​ ​digital​ ​certificates with​ ​every​ ​bot​ ​action​ ​and​ ​storing​ ​those​ ​certificates​ ​on​ ​a​ ​blockchain​ ​for​ ​creating​ ​an​ ​identity​ ​for each​ ​bot.​ ​Companies​ ​with​ ​decryption​ ​keys​ ​can​ ​then​ ​audit​ ​or​ ​inspect​ ​those​ ​certificates​ ​and​ ​this will​ ​help​ ​to​ ​monitor​ ​bots’​ ​activities.

 ​“As​ ​more​ ​organizations​ ​deploy​ ​intelligent​ ​robotic​ ​processes,​ ​the​ ​need​ ​for​ ​BotChain​ ​is​ ​only​ ​going to​ ​grow.​ ​Compliance​ ​is​ ​incredibly​ ​important​ ​to​ ​large​ ​enterprises,”​ ​said​ ​Michael​ ​Maloney,​ ​the former​ ​blockchain​ ​CTO​ ​at​ ​Ernst​ ​and​ ​Young.

​​His​ ​statement​ ​was​ ​further​ ​echoed​ ​by​ ​​Chris​ ​Curran from​ ​PricewaterhouseCoopers​ ​(PwC):

​”As​ ​bot​ ​processes​ ​grow​ ​within​ ​organizations,​ ​it​ ​makes sense​ ​that​ ​they​ ​would​ ​be​ ​subject​ ​to​ ​​risk​​ ​and​ ​compliance​ ​requirements​ ​just​ ​like​ ​any​ ​other workers.”

This​ ​becomes​ ​increasingly​ ​important​ ​as​ ​bots​ ​start​ ​to​ ​handle​ ​workflows​ ​that​ ​require​ ​certification, like​ ​HIPAA,​ ​SOC2,​ ​and​ ​more.​ ​BotChain​ ​allows​ ​auditors​ ​to​ ​validate​ ​that​ ​bots​ ​are​ ​compliant​ ​with the​ ​requirements​ ​of​ ​these​ ​workflows.​ ​BotChain​ ​also​ ​manages​ ​bot​ ​registration​ ​and​ ​identification.

“Bots​ ​are​ ​starting​ ​to​ ​be​ ​spoofed.​ ​Hackers​ ​are​ ​using​ ​them​ ​to​ ​steal​ ​information​ ​and​ ​because​ ​of this,​ ​bot​ ​identity​ ​is​ ​rapidly​ ​becoming​ ​an​ ​issue.​ ​BotChain​ ​is​ ​an​ ​identity​ ​solution​ ​for​ ​bots,​ ​so​ ​that​ ​as humans​ ​interact​ ​with​ ​more​ ​bots,​ ​or​ ​bots​ ​interact​ ​with​ ​each​ ​other,​ ​they​ ​can​ ​quickly​ ​establish trust,”​ ​said​ ​Rob​ ​May,​ ​CEO​ ​at​ ​Talla.

The​ ​BotChain​ ​provides​ ​critical​ ​systems​ ​for​ ​anyone​ ​that​ ​uses​ ​A.I.​ ​powered​ ​products,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as those​ ​that​ ​develop​ ​them.​ ​For​ ​example,​ ​end​ ​users​ ​of​ ​any​ ​A.I.-powered,​ ​autonomous​ ​system​ ​will gain​ ​an​ ​auditable​ ​trail​ ​of​ ​interactions​ ​and​ ​decisions​ ​made,​ ​accomplished​ ​by​ ​hashing​ ​information about​ ​each​ ​agent​ ​task​ ​to​ ​the​ ​blockchain​ ​so​ ​it​ ​is​ ​immutable.​ ​Bots’​ ​identities​ ​are​ ​verified​ ​with certainty​ ​to​ ​the​ ​humans​ ​that​ ​use​ ​them,​ ​and​ ​to​ ​other​ ​bots,​ ​preventing​ ​bot​ ​spoofing​ ​and spamming.

Developers,​ ​companies,​ ​and​ ​individuals​ ​will​ ​need​ ​Botcoins,​ ​the​ ​token​ ​of​ ​the​ ​BotChain,​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​transact.​ ​The​ ​token​ ​sale​ ​is​ ​a​ ​way​ ​to​ ​get tokens​ ​into​ ​the​ ​market​ ​at​ ​launch.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​currently​ ​anticipated​ ​that,​ ​of​ ​the​ ​tokens​ ​initially​ ​created, 50%​ ​will​ ​be​ ​sold​ ​to​ ​the​ ​public,​ ​and​ ​those​ ​that​ ​are​ ​not​ ​sold​ ​will​ ​be​ ​burned.​ ​Further,​ ​it​ ​is anticipated​ ​that​ ​twenty​ ​percent​ ​of​ ​the​ ​tokens​ ​will​ ​be​ ​reserved​ ​for​ ​BotChain​ ​partners,​ ​advisors, and​ ​developers.

PlusCoin Team, Crypto Leaders: Cryptocurrency is the Monetary Unit of the Future

December 1, 2017 — As cryptocurrencies continue to gain attention of the world of business and politics alike, the experts behind PlusCoin maintain their stance in talks relevant to the revolution brought about by the widespread use of virtual monetary units. Although PlusCoin is known to operate only on the Ethereum blockchain, it is one with the global crypto leaders in the move to popularize the distributed-ledger tech and incorporate digital assets into the daily lives of people.

Cryptocurrency to take over the world

The DS Plus platform developers, in consonance with the views of Roger Ver who is one of the pioneer investors in Bitcoin startups, have always been in favor of economic freedom. They believe that the world needs to realize the vital role played by cryptocurrencies in creating a society whose members can easily and freely participate in building the economy. Following this, PlusCoin continues to innovate to bring the benefits of using virtual money closer to the world.

In fact, the company’s CEO, Mikhail Mikhailov, now leads his team with greater enthusiasm to develop better ways of making people see cryptocurrency in a different light. He hopes that in five years, the company’s DS Plus mobile app will have already racked up more users who prefer the convenience of using virtual money when purchasing goods and services or when implementing state programs aimed at improving the way of life of the citizens. But, of course, this all starts with bettering the know-how of people on cryptocurrency and the technologies associated with it.

Knowing that educating the people on digital asset management is underway, DS Plus team sees that cryptocurrencies will soon take over the world. And this must not be viewed as a detriment but rather as a favorable juncture that is very much in keeping with what Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous founder of Bitcoin, has always envisioned – that is, a world that fully embraces the use of decentralized digital assets.

Designed to endure adversities

Vitalik Buterin, one of the founders of the second-biggest cryptocurrency which is Etheruem, affirms the surfacing of a lot more units of cryptocurrency. This might spell challenge on the part of digital asset developers including PlusCoin, but this is seen by experts as an occurrence material to the fundamental shift in which the business world works. However, people should expect that sooner or later, the list of the many digital monetary units that exist shall narrow down to leave the strongest currencies as the only choices users can have.

But while the competition among those units goes on, all cryptocurrencies fight for their wide acceptance across the globe. As stressed out by Brian Armstrong, the CEO of one of the earliest Bitcoin startups known as Coinbase, virtual currencies are all together in a battle not technically against fiat currencies, but rather against governments that look at blockchain and cryptocurrency as threats to the “normal” ways monetary transactions should go.

To that, Kristina Galkina, CMO of PlusCoin, adds that there are indeed still a lot of countries unwilling “to accept cryptocurrency as a separate economic model which can be used by citizens to make various transactions.” But in response to this issue and more, cryptocurrency advocates including PlusCoin carry on as they gear toward developing measures to ensure that the revolution started by digital assets endures adversities and rolls over to the future.

About DS Plus and PlusCoin

DS Plus is a platform that provides users with a crypto-cashback service. It comes in the form of a mobile application into which the PlusCoin cryptocurrency is integrated. PlusCoin, on the other hand, is the name not only of the cryptocurrency but also of the company that operates the said decentralized DS Plus running on the Ethereum blockchain.

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.

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.

BetterBetting Launches Pre-ICO for BETR, the Betting Currency of the Future

Bitcoin Press Release: Estonia-based BetterBetting launch their BETR platform, with details offered of their ICO which launches in December. The BETR platform will change the way we interact with P2P sports betting.

28th November, 2017 – Tallinn, Estonia -Revolutionary new decentralised sports betting marketplace, Better Betting Foundation are to debut their BETR coin, with the goal of establishing a global betting liquidity pool. BetterBetting Foundation, a software systems enabler for sports betting on the blockchain, has launched its pre- Initial Coin Offering (ICO) sale ahead of its ICO in December.

The token sale introduces investors to BETR, a market changing betting cryptocurrency that will lay the foundations of the first truly decentralised peer-to-peer sports betting platform on the internet.

Supported and advised by a number of industry specialists, BetterBetting will introduce a revolutionary twist on the betting exchange model, completely eradicating the middle man from the equation. All bets will be stored on the blockchain, providing full transparency and provable fairness on all transactions, thereby eliminating all human or business activity between the two betting parties.
Ultimately, the software and standards that comprise the system will be open source and free for anyone to copy and use, paving the way for BETR to become the exclusive cryptocurrency of some of the world’s leading gaming operators.

BetterBetting is seeking a minimum $2M and maximum $30M raise from December’s ICO. These funds will be invested in the development and release of the BetterBetting protocol; the development and open-sourcing of dapps and node software; and marketing to key stakeholders and consumers, as well as legal and administrative costs.

Core to the BetterBetting system is software that implements a distributed directory of sporting events and markets, while placing bets as contracts onto the blockchain. This software is called the Better Betting Node (BBN). It acts as a distributed mirror for directories, facilitating a standard repository for sporting information that can be added to by any agent on the network, and queried in order to present user-friendly client interfaces to punters.

That means not only is it easier than traditional methods to find any specific bet, but it also makes it possible for bets to be standardised and pooled together. Liquidity will be driven by the relationships Better Betting has with their partners who already have significant market share in difficult markets around the world.

A tiered bonus system will be built in to incentivise early investment in the ICO. Thereafter, tokens will be issued at ICO value, which is set at the closest Ethereum price to US$0.10c per token. In the betting market the amount of money in escrow or accounts at any one time worldwide can exceed $50Bn. Estimating a 1% market penetration in Year 1 and given the projected market cap is already in excess of 100 times the initial market cap of BETR, token value is projected to go up significantly.

“With Better Betting we are excited to bring a new paradigm to the world of sports betting. By combining the power of blockchain with our experience and knowledge of the sports betting industry, we are introducing a new betting currency that understands the underlying structure of a sports bet, ensuring fair and robust betting opportunities between two parties, who do not have any relationship with one another.”

said Adriaan Brink, CEO & Founder, Better Betting Foundation.

“Working with major industry players, this decentralised liquidity marketplace for sports betting can be used in many different ways and provides automated programmatic interfaces so that existing sportsbooks can link into the system,” he added. “Working with, rather than against, major industry players with a zero margin model, we seek to provide the railway tracks for sports betting in the future.”

ICO pre-sales are now live and available for qualified and institutional investors. Public sales will be available mid-December 2017.

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:

15th November – 15%
