PR: Energi Mine Adds to Ecosystem of Energy Saving Partners with Simply EV Partnership

Energi Mine EV Partnership

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

Partnership announced in same week as Energi Mine launches promotion with OKEx, the world’s biggest exchange

London – Energi Mine, the blockchain platform that financially rewards energy saving behaviour using EnergiTokens (ETK), and Simply EV, a leading provider of EV accessories today, announced a partnership. The partnership will enable those with ETK to spend their currency on electric vehicle charging cables and accessories, as well as earn ETK through a rewards scheme at Simply EV.

The relationship will enable Simply EV customers to join the Energi Mine community and use the ETK tokens. These tokens can be earned through the Energi Mine platform, by rewarding people for energy saving behaviour: from purchasing electric vehicles, to using energy efficient appliances. Operating in a similar way to rewards and loyalty schemes, ETK can also be gained by customers through purchasing certain goods from a growing list of suppliers. In fact, one of the very actions through which a customer could earn ETK would be to purchase products from Simply EV.

Simply EV sells electric vehicle charging equipment direct to consumers – rather than through the vehicle manufacturers themselves. Therefore, whatever make of electric vehicle a customer has, they will be able to find a variety of charging equipment on their site; the charge cables in particular offering an industry leading five-year warranty.

Conor Thomas, managing director of Simply EV, said that “By teaming up with Energi Mine and joining their circle of partners, we are creating a real community for our customers. Our customers have made the decision to invest in sustainable transportation and reduce their carbon footprint, what better way to reward them than to bring them into the Energi Mine ecosystem, offering them rewards with us and the other companies Energi Mine has partnered with.”

This is one of many recent partnerships announced by Energi Mine, including others with the Energy Managers Association that will see the platform trialled on Network Rail, as well as a recently announced partnership with FuzeX that takes crypto one step further to being used at the checkout when buying goods in person. In forming such partnerships, Energi Mine is building a community of energy conscious businesses that will accept and aid the distribution of EnergiTokens.

Omar Rahim, CEO of Energi Mine said “Part of our vision at Energi Mine is to create a community of likeminded businesses that all strive to reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainability. With this partnership we are now making consumers part of that ecosystem by giving them a way that they can benefit from financial rewards for their energy conscious decisions. This should also have the effect of incentivising further energy saving behaviour.”

This partnership comes off the back of recent research that has shown that the UK is lagging behind when it comes to the provision of infrastructure for charging electric vehicles – as the rate of uptake of electric cars outstrips the installation of vehicle charging points.

Following on from the successful launch of its rewards app, Energi Mine is offering bonus EnergiTokens (ETK) and a prize of $20,000 worth of ETH when you open an account with the biggest crypto exchange in the world, OKEx, simply by depositing 1 ETH. The first 3000 people to sign up to OKEx, using this link will receive EnergiTokens (ETK), with the first 1000 people each receiving 3000 ETK, the next 1000 people receiving 2000 ETK and the final 1000 people receiving 1000 ETK. As well as this, you will have a 1 in 3,000 chance to WIN $20,000 worth of ETH.

Get involved today, help be a part of the change! For more information about the EnergiToken energy-saving reward scheme, or to become a partner, please visit www.energitoken.com, follow us on twitter @EnergiMine or join the Energi Mine Telegram group @energitoken.

Former Huobi CTO Zhang Jian Launches FCoin, Gaining Investments from Top Venture Capital Firms

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

FCoin, a digital assets trading platform, has gained investments from top-notch investment institutions including Danhua Capital, Node Capital, Singer Capital, Timestamp Capital, 8 Decimal Capital, Zipper Fund and other investors.

FCoin was founded by Zhang Jian, former Huobi CTO and author of the book “Blockchain: Defining The Future Finance and Economic Landscape”.

“We are delighted to receive investments from such trusted partners and look forward to progressing our plans to become a leading player in the crypto currency trading market,” Zhang Jian said.

FCoin is innovative and unique in its form of organization in that it is not simply a trading platform or a company but a new community that its users, namely the community members, can use to execute their rights and interests by holding FCoin Tokens (FTs), issued by FCoin.

FCoin has three features. First, it is the world’s first fully transparent trading platform, with disclosure of real-time assets and transaction data on the platform. Second, the world’s first platform adopts a “transaction fee mining” model and more than half of the FTs are rewarded to community users by returning the transaction fee. Third, beyond the self-organizing ecology of the community, 80% of the exchange’s revenue will go to the holders of FT, while FT holders also have the right to participate in the major decisions of the community.

There are two ways of accepting listings of crypto currencies, Zhang Jian explained. The first is by recommendation. Crypto currency which is highly recommended by a majority of the community members and meets the criteria can be listed on the mainboard, while others can go to the innovation board after scrutiny.

FCoin promises that the audit results will be given within 3 working days after the submission of the application, and, if the audit results are positive, the approval will be given immediately.

This is only the starting point of the evolution of FCoin, Zhang noted. Next, FCoin will advance a clearing and settlement system based on the cross-chain technology. The ultimate goal is to transform the exchange into a structure of Token+Blockchain, and practise the token economy.

FCoin is developed by a top-notch international team independently. The core team of the FCoin community consists of people from world-recognized companies who have considerable experience in both Wall Street and crypto finance companies.

– Launch of a crypto exchange and wallet –
– Bringing crypto offering to the U.S. market –

Global investment platform eToro has today announced plans to expand its cryptocurrency capabilities and subject to regulatory approvals will launch an exchange and a digital wallet. eToro will also bring its cryptocurrency offering to the United States, launching the platform to U.S. customers later this year under the leadership of the newly appointed U.S. Managing Director Guy Hirsch.

Yoni Assia, Co-founder and CEO of eToro, said: “We believe that in the future all assets will become digitised. This will help to open the markets to everyone and enable them to invest in the assets they want in a simple and transparent way. Crypto is the first step on this journey and we are excited to share our plans to launch an exchange and wallet.”

The announcements made today at Consensus 2018 in New York, follow the news in March that eToro had completed its Series E funding round, raising $100m USD to accelerate its global expansion and the development of blockchain technology to support the digitisation of assets. The platform enables people to invest in the assets they want to own from cryptocurrencies though to traditional assets such as commodities.

Yoni Assia, commented: “An exchange and wallet are important additions to our crypto offering and we know that both have been eagerly anticipated by our customers.”

eToro currently offers ten cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, XRP, Litecoin, Ethereum Classic, Dash, Stellar, NEO and EOS) with plans to add more coins over the coming months. eToro’s cryptocurrency to cryptocurrency exchange will launch later this year enabling customers to trade coins.

The wallet will be launched as a phased rollout with select customers participating in beta testing to ensure that eToro provides an app which best meets its customers’ needs. The wallet app will be available to download on the App Store and Play Store and will work across multiple platforms and in multiple languages. It will enable users to hold multiple cryptocurrencies and tokens.

Since launching in 2007, eToro has built a global community of more than ten million investors across 140 countries. Guy Hirsch has been appointed US Managing Director responsible for bringing eToro’s cryptocurrency offering to the United States. Guy previously served as Director of Innovation Strategy at Samsung and has extensive experience across digital transformation and unified commerce.

Guy Hirsch, USA Managing Director, eToro, said: “eToro empowers investors with a platform that gives them access to the assets they want, shared knowledge and ease of transaction. We know that there is a strong demand in the U.S. for crypto and we are excited to be able to offer U.S. investors the opportunity to learn about and invest across multiple cryptocurrencies.”

eToro will offer U.S. investors three ways to access the crypto markets: manually invest in a coin, automatically copy the trades of other traders on the platform to benefit from their knowledge and investment expertise, or invest in a Crypto CopyFund which provides a diversified portfolio of major crypto assets.

From today, U.S. investors can visit eToro.com to join the waiting list ahead of the launch of the U.S. platform later this year.

It is no secret that everybody wants to make their own ICOs, raise funds and provide better and more efficient services. With the revolution of Blockchainit seems that we are headed towards a better, more complete and innovative future. Companies across all industries are pushing hard to be the early bird that eats the worm and achieving their legacy and create history.

So why have we not yet gained the momentum we are all waiting for. Don’t you feel like we were supposed to move even faster with all this fund raising and innovative implementations. Can we truly compare this to the revolution of the internet. Masterminds are coming together, creating new projects and ways to adventure into the world of Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies & Smart Contracts, so the real question is, how do we gain the true momentum of this technology and use it to better our lives and our future.

Same Technology, Different Race

The truth is, as humans we compete to always finish first and eventually find out that all the other participants are in a totally different race. It starts with innovation and the intention to improve the industry but surely turns to a competition on who finishes the fastest, and makes the biggest buzz. What if we told you we can change that.

What if it were possible to work together, hand in hand while sharing resources and knowledge. There are a few reasons why people are unable to partner up and work together,

1.Ego. People think it’s a weakness to cooperate or even think they are too good and can accomplish everything by themselves.

2.Fear. Market participants are scared of companies and other ICOs they do not know a lot about. There is always the assumption that any ICO could be a scam and would affect you negatively.

3.Competition, in which everyone solely focuses on themselves and any ICO trying to find an ally, believes there are many others that are doing better and can land better partnerships.

Collaboration Vs. Competition

INGOT Coin & Trade.io Assemble the A Team
C vs C — I believe in Collaboration, I don’t believe in Competition. Let’s collaborate stated by Iman Mutlaq, INGOT Coin Founder.

Iman Mutlaq Founder of INGOT Coin & Jim Preissler, CEO of Trade.io formed a partnership and plan to establish a new collaboration of a diverse set of innovative companies and market leading entrepreneurs that consists of many reputable organizations including successful and promising upcoming ICOs, experienced advisers, proven visionaries, well-accredited universities and other organizations.

It is good to compete as long as there is efficiency in the competition. Competition becomes harmful when companies are no longer focused on the main goal; how can we improve our services while using Blockchain and other technological advancement to further enhance the services provided to the people.

Both Iman and Jim have a great deal of experience in the financial sector. They both share a common goal; to collaborate and innovate together to pioneer the industry just like they have done in their careers. It doesn’t stop there, both Iman and Jim are already finalizing agreements with multiple organizations to join this alliance and unite to create an never-ending Legacy.

What to Expect Next.

Alone you might do great, alone I might do great; but together we can make history, Stated by Jim Preissler, CEO of Trade.io

Both teams are now working on providing to their group and establish a conglomerate of partners. They already have universities, ICOs and visionaries who share the same vision approaching the group with desire to join.

PR: ECOMI Partners with tokidoki to Transform Characters into Digital Collectables

ECOMI Partners with tokidoki to Transform Characters into Digital Collectables

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

During Consensus Week in New York, Singapore-based blockchain technology company, ECOMI, announced its first license with tokidoki, the internationally recognized and iconic lifestyle brand that has amassed cult-like following for its larger-than-life characters.

ECOMI will bring tokidoki’s iconic characters into the digital world with verified ownership by creating digital tokidoki collectables in the form of a non-fungible token available on the ECOMI Collect app.

“We chose tokidoki as our first brand partner because of their ambition to expand into the digital realm when it comes to collectable items,” says David Yu, CEO of ECOMI.

“Their very diverse global audience are already collecting tokidoki’s unique characters in various forms. Being able to have verifiable ownership of unique digital art on the ECOMI Collect app is going to change the way collectables are viewed, bought, and traded.”

With the decentralized nature of blockchain, the ECOMI Collect app will simplify interactions with underlying technologies by bringing licensed digital collectables to a global audience while maintaining international standards of security, and intellectual property protection.

“We are always looking to work with innovative companies and look forward to disrupting the collectables market with ECOMI,” says Pooneh Mohajer, tokidoki Co-founder and CEO

Since the dawn of cyberspace, the nature of the Internet has made it very easy for expressions of creative works such as, but not limited to, literary, graphic, and audio-visual works, to be copied and distributed over the Internet anonymously, which has been a risk for creators.

“We feel the tokidoki characters can be applied to all products and are especially excited that we will be one of the first licenses in the digital collectables space.” says Simone Legno, tokidoki Co-founder and Chief Creative Director

A range of digital collectables will be made available in Q3 / Q4 2018 through the ECOMI Collect app, a decentralized application that employs blockchain technology to verify and trace ownership of digital commodities.

About ECOMI:
ECOMI delivers the benefits of decentralization, ownership, privacy and control to the mainstream. Operating through the ECOMI app, the ECOMI Secure Wallet and ECOMI One hardware devices enable users to securely store and interact with cryptocurrencies, digital assets and data in one user-friendly solution. ECOMI’s ecosystem is underpinned by blockchain technology in three primary areas – Protection of private keys, real-world cryptocurrency payments, and the exciting new world of crypto-collectables.

For more information, please see: www.ecomi.com

About tokidoki:
tokidoki, which translates to “sometimes” in Japanese, is an internationally recognized and iconic lifestyle brand based on the vision of Italian artist Simone Legno and his partners, serial entrepreneurs Pooneh Mohajer and Ivan Arnold. Since debuting in 2005, tokidoki has amassed a cult-like following for its larger-than-life characters and emerged as a sought-after global brand. The tokidoki universe contains a diverse array of characters across several character families, each with its own unique story. tokidoki offers an extensive range of products which include apparel, handbags, cosmetics, accessories, toys and more. As an innovative company, tokidoki is known not only for its eye-popping aesthetic and criminally cute characters but also its megawatt partnerships with the likes of iconic brands such as Hello Kitty, Karl Lagerfeld, LeSportsac, Barbie, Onitsuka Tiger, Sephora, Marvel and others.

The sooner our education system is digitally disrupted, the better

It’s difficult to measure the impact of higher education, either in a monetary sense or otherwise, although a few studies have tried. One recent study, involving 14,780 higher education institutions in 78 countries over six decades, suggested that doubling the number of Universities in a region results in a 4.7% increase in GDP per capita over five years.

Two main reasons were suggested by the authors – a rise in workforce skill levels, and improved research and innovation.

This is a vote of confidence for a higher education model that is coming under increased scrutiny, particularly as the cost of University tuition continues to balloon all over the world. In fact, OECD countries are currently spending an average of 1.6% of their GDP on higher education, up from 1.3% in 2000.

In light of continual increases in the cost of higher education, we must ask whether we might be able to achieve these increases in workforce skill levels via a different systemic path.

Digital Disruption
Recent years have seen the rise of various platforms that host what might fairly be called recreational educational content, such as Udemy, Udacity or even YouTube. These platforms offer opportunities for self-education, and although they may offer courses relevant to many professions, they can’t really be considered competitors to the traditional education system because their courses aren’t recognised by employers.

Tutellus xxx, yyy explains what needs to change in the digital education space:
“The traditional higher education system will only be truly under threat from digital disruption when employers recognise qualifications and courses supplied by digital platforms. This places the burden on platforms to ensure their courses are of sufficient quality”

Tutellus is a startup that is creating a platform with exactly this vision in mind. The Tutellus ecosystem integrates students and teachers with employers and is built on blockchain technology with two native tokens – TUT and STUT. The tokenomic profile of these tokens, as well as the platform’s revenue model, aims to create incentives around the production of students (graduates) that’re truly ready for a given job or career.

Students are financially rewarded for the time they spend on the platform; teachers keep the large majority of the revenue their courses generate as well as a cut off the fee paid by employers to hire one of their students; employers get access to a ready pool of keen, driven candidates.

The Economy and Beyond…

The study mentioned previously, unsurprisingly, showed that more higher education institutions results in a rise in workforce skill levels, which contributes to economic growth.

A more surprising finding of that same study was that an expansion of higher education systems was also associated with a greater prevalence of pro-democracy views among individuals.

Innovations that scale often have unintended consequences, and it’s hard to foresee how easier access to quality education could result in anything less than positive. We can’t tell exactly where things will go but what is clear is, the sooner our education systems are disrupted, the better.

Tutellus has partnered with Cryptonomos to conduct its ICO. The presale began on May, 10, the main sale on June 12, 2018. An early bird bonus of 10% will be made available to early participants.

DISCLAIMER: TUT public sale will not be open to citizens, residents or green card holders of the USA (including Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, and any other protectorate of the USA) or other representatives of the USA

The popularity of massive multiplayer online games and virtual worlds has grown tremendously during the last 20 years, and some of the largest services have seen tens of millions of users. Now you have the opportunity to take part in the creation of the exciting blockchain universe that opens new galaxies for you.

Last Tuesday, the first Nordic blockchain game ICO commenced following on from a successful pre-sale earlier this year.

The Parsec Credit token will be used in the game making it the core of the economy. It can also be exchanged for Ethereum.

The developers aim to get Parsec tokens on as many cryptocurrency exchanges as possible and make it a liquid currency not just in the game, but also in the real world.

Blockchain and Game
Parsec Frontiers is regarded as one of the most exciting blockchain games in development, as it’s one of the first full games that deploys blockchain technology at the core of it’s virtual economy.

Just recently Parsec Foundation and Artplant opened the auction for the first spaceships to be available in its game. The ARK-class ships is a limited edition available to the first 100 players, beginning with an auction that started on May, 15.

“It’s a very natural step for a game like this to embrace blockchain technology to empower the virtual economy driving the game.” says Henning Rokling, the founder of the Parsec Foundation and COO in Norwegian game developer Artplant. “Not only will it give players full transparency of what assets, ships and resources are available and tradable, but it will also allow players to invest time or money into a game and also bring those investments out of the game if they want to.”

Largest NEO Based MMO
Early in May, Parsec Frontiers developers also made the key decision choosing Neo customized networks instead of EOS.IO.

It was a well-considered choice, as Neo has very advanced smart contracts which support several mainstream languages including C# and Java, which will be used by players along with the diagram-based solution they’re considering implementing. Parsec Frontiers is by far the largest game to choose NEO.

Encryption is one of the most important methods for providing data security. Encryption is widely used on the internet to protect user information being sent between a browser and a server, including passwords, payment information and other personal information that should be considered private. However, with recent developments in quantum computers, more powerful and capable than “traditional computers”, the “traditional” data security comes to a threat. Are we prepared for post-quantum era cyber security? IDM service provides today a complete post-quantum protection for tomorrow. With new SIZE algorithm IDM team has developed a security solution to tackle the quantum computer supremacy.

Quantum computer development
Quantum computing takes advantage of a strange ability of subatomic particles to exist in more than one state at any time. In common digital computing, a bit is a single piece of information that can exist in two states – 1 or 0. Quantum computing uses quantum bits, or ‘qubits’ instead. These are quantum systems with two states. This difference allows a future quantum computer to solve some difficult mathematical problems easier, faster and with less energy.

Quantum computers operating on completely different principles to classic computers can solve particular mathematical problems, like finding very large prime numbers. This problem is classically very difficult to solve. In fact, it is so difficult that it forms the basis of RSA encryption, probably the most popular method of encryption used today. Since prime numbers are so important in cryptography, it is likely that quantum computers would be able to crack practically any of the existing data security systems.

To estimate the scope of a potential security problem we have to answer few questions: What kind of attacks can quantum computer perform? What are the most vulnerable scenarios? How far away is the quantum computing? How can we prepare for the future?

Today Google, IBM, Honeywell, Microsoft, Rigetti and some other companies and laboratories are developing a quantum computer. Currently, with the number of qubits less than 100, a quantum computer is far from being practically viable. However, continuous research and development are bringing fast the day when a quantum computer could surpass the abilities of conventional computers. In anticipation to this day IDM has developed a solution for protection of data security from quantum supremacy. This solution is very different from commonly employed encryption methods.

Quantum threat to encryption
Quantum computer is a threat to data security. There are some particular scenarios, use cases, algorithms necessary to consider when referring to the quantum supremacy.

Hash algorithms
Cryptographic hash algorithms are the basis of blockchain technology. It is the hash function that protects any blockchain record from being modified. In addition, the proof-of-work system uses a hash to control the difficulty level of mining process. There are many other use cases of these algorithms, which are very popular in any industry: it is a part of the digital signatures and helps to store password securely.

A hash function maps input data of arbitrary size to a fix size (a hash) and is designed to be a one-way, that is, a function which infeasible to invert. Any change in input data leads to a different hash. The hash function is irreversible: it is impossible to retrieve input data from output hash string.

Is it possible to mine all Bitcoins at once with quantum computer?
Alex Beath, a Toronto-based physicist, formulated a popular idea: the first quantum computer will mine all of the remaining Bitcoins instantly. There are different opinions in the scientific and crypto community, which are based on theoretical research and practice. Briefly, to make quantum computer be practically useful for Bitcoin mining, we need thousands of qubits. It will eventually happen in 10-20 years from now when 99% or more bitcoins will be in circulation.

Are my passwords safe?
When we read news about brute force attack on passwords, such as attack on WordPress in 2017, we worry about our password strength. How is it being done? It is not possible simply to continue retyping passwords directly into a user interface of a site or service: the protection such as captcha prevents such attack. Most modern services store passwords as hashes. Attackers somehow obtain user database with these password hashes and match these hashes with dictionaries of common password hashes. The brute-force searching with a quantum computer will probably be much faster. IDM allows to store complicated, very long passwords and all your sensitive data in a quantum resistant manner.

Symmetric Encryption
Symmetric algorithms apply the same key for encryption and decryption. We use such algorithms as AES for storage and transition of sensitive data, including access to banking accounts. Probably, a quantum computer will be able to break easily the popular 128-bit AES algorithm by the Grover algorithm in several years. To prevent losses, information security community already discusses AES-256 as a medium-term protection against the quantum attack.

Increasing the algorithm complexity with a key length is just a temporary measure. The ultimate solution offered by IDM allows to protect data completely and on a permanent basis.

Asymmetric Encryption
Public or asymmetric encryption, including RSA and elliptic curve techniques, is very popular on the Internet and in cryptocurrency word. Cryptocurrency transaction uses a signature and a public key to verify that it was the owner of the private key that signed it. It is an example of public algorithm usage. Other examples include access to websites, messaging, sending e-mails.

Because asymmetric encryption uses two connected keys – private and public – it is more vulnerable than symmetric. Dr. Michele Mosca, deputy director of the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, estimates the chance that some fundamental public key crypto will be broken by quantum computing by the year 2026 as one in seven, and a one-in-two chance of the same by 2031.
MIT is constantly exploring this too. In 1994, Peter Shor, a math professor at MIT, invented an algorithm able to crack asymmetric encryption by the quantum computer. In 2015, MIT demonstrated practical ability to break RSA by the quantum computer.

The threat to public encryption is tangible and cannot be eliminated by a simple key length extension. Information security specialists are discussing different types of algorithms, such as lattice-based cryptography and error-correcting codes.

IDM is based on the SIZE technology utilizing new type of error-correction codes.
The out of the box solution

The purpose of the data encryption is to transform information in order to prevent unauthorized access to it. IDM guarantees a prevention from unauthorized access by applying the SIZE algorithm. The SIZE algorithm relates to a class of correction codes that correct errors, producing multi-level file transformation, same way as encryption algorithms do. And just like encryption algorithms, our code makes unauthorized access to the data impossible.

For data protection, the SIZE algorithm applies well-known digital electronics operations. However, these operations have never been applied to special algorithms with a special sequence of mathematical operations and have never been used to protect information. The algorithm is used to transform any digital content into a new form — a set of digital packages. Each of these individual packages has no functional value and may not contain a single bit of the original information. To restore the original information, it is necessary to reassemble the original file from a set of packages in a specific way, performing a series of mathematical operations.

There is an infinite number of ways to transform data, the algorithm specifies only the general direction of the process. The data transformation is user specific, so no-one else can access this data, except for the user.

To summarize, the SIZE technology guarantees privacy and security for a data storage and transmission. The algorithm characteristics fully meet requirements for the post-quantum protection system.

In addition to ultimate protection, IDM’s technology provides the highest level of data recovery and has minimum requirements for computing resources. We provide an excellent opportunity for everyone to share the success of the company. On May 28th we start a crowdfunding campaign on our site. Join us to be a part of the secure future!

Essentia Opens KYC Verification Ahead of Public Sale

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

Essentia, the decentralized protocol framework, has just announced details of its public token sale following the completion of their successful pre-sale. Essentia has implemented KYC/AML verification ahead of the public sale so participants wishing to contribute to the token generation event must follow the verification procedure Essentia has outlined in detail in its project blog.

During the process of verification, interested parties will have the opportunity to experience the Essentia framework in action by creating their own dashboard through a series of quick steps. Here, documents can be uploaded in a secure environment and applicants can specify such details as the ETH wallet they wish to contribute from.

Anyone wishing to contribute more than 10 ETH will be required to submit additional details, and to verify that they are not the US or Chinese resident. Having completed verification for the Essentia public sale, applicants may return to their dashboard at any time to check on the status of their application. Due to high demand, Essentia cannot guarantee that successful applicants will be able to receive the full allocation of tokens they have requested.

Essentia co-founder Matteo Giancarlo Zago has stated: “The public sale marks the beginning of the next exciting phase for Essentia. Our community has been incredibly patient over the last few months, while the team has worked away behind the scenes to finalize everything in readiness for this moment. We look forward to welcoming applicants to our public sale, and to have them accompany us on the our journey building the infrastructure of the next web.”

Having recently signed an agreement with the Finnish government to develop a blockchain solution for the MTK ministry, one of Essentia’s first tasks following the public sale will be to recommence development on this initiative. In addition, the team will ramp up work on its enterprise solutions and fine-tuning the Essentia protocol, which they expect to grow into a thriving ecosystem of integrated dApps and other third party services.

Essentia successfully hit the hard cap during their pre-sale at the beginning of May, raising over $20m by reaching the maximum allocation of ESS tokens. As a consequence, no more pre-sale applications can be accepted. The Essentia public sale will mark the final stage of the process, which aims to give the Essentia community a chance to get involved, with 595 million ESS tokens allocated for the general sale to be distributed to all participants.

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

On a par with Bitcoin, new currencies are entering the crypto world. Recently multifunctional gaming platform Game Stars have closed a pre-sale stage with complete sold-out of GST tokens and over 51 ETH and 57 BTC raised. The platform and the token caused a lot of buzz in the blockchain market. Moreover, gaming world show great interest for the project – cyber athletes are willing to join the platform.

The 1st round of the Token Sale started on May 10th, 2018 and will last until May 27th, 2018. Only 300 million tokens will be allocated for the sale. Token-sale participants have an opportunity to get 30% bonus.

After the end of the Token Sale, GST tokens will be available on several exchanges. Game Stars has already established partnership with YoBit exchange and received prior consent from WEX that is among TOP-30 exchanges on CoinMarketCap.

Game Stars Token are already in demand and to show a significant increase in value due to 3 reasons:

The token is a fuel of the platform that solves existing eSport problems and will be in demand of the market participants.

GST emission is limited and there won’t be enough tokens for everyone willing to buy them
As soon as the project reaches Hard Cap point the shortage of tokens can be caused by only 50.000 basic or 14.285 profi-users signing up for the platform.

The last point is quite crucial. As soon as the Token sale is over, unsold token will be immediately burned. Tokens that get into the platform will be frozen for 2 years. Later token holders will be able to sell GST on exchanges. As users need to have GST tokens in order to use Game Stars platform solutions, the demand for the token will grow, so will its value.

Game Stars will provide following benefits for eSports market participants:

Players
Cyber athletes raise funding for their professional development by participating in various tournaments or selling personal tokens that are issued with a smart contract through Cyberathlete Initial Coin Offering (CICO) procedure.

Sponsors and advertisers
Sponsors can support the most promising cyber sportsmen and get profit from their income. Advertising companies select a team, a player or an event that fits the best for promoting their brand or product.

Team managers
Managers will be able to develop team members, look for new ones or raise fundings for participating in tournaments.

Moreover, each platform user can benefit from owning Game Stars Token and its increase in value. GST can become a trump-card of your cryptocurrency portfolio. Participate in Game Stars Token Sale on the official website!

Energi Mine Launch Phase 1 of EnergiToken Rewards Platform

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

Manchester, UK – 10th May 2018: Energi Mine, the AI-based energy company, today announced the beta launch of its Energi Token rewards platform.

Energi Mine is revolutionising the global energy market through decentralisation and blockchain technology with the ultimate goal of reducing global energy demand and carbon emissions. It is creating a global ecosystem that provides financial incentives for businesses and consumers to save energy with a new rewards system. Energi Mine provides its utility token, EnergiToken (ETK) to consumers in exchange for engaging in energy saving behaviours such as using public transportation, purchasing energy efficient appliances to reducing energy consumption.

ETK can then be used though the ETK app for paying energy bills, charging electric cars or even exchanged for fiat currency. As ETK has financial value it creates a ‘profit’ motivation for consumers to conserve energy, resulting in people who are naturally motivated to save energy due to the financial reward. It’s a wholly different and unique approach to the problem of excessive energy consumption. The initial phase one of the ETK rewards app, which remunerates consumers for energy efficient behaviour, will enabled owners of electric vehicles to upload proof of purchase documentation to claim tokens. The phase one EnergiToken app will be released on 10th May in English, with the Korean version following by the end of May.

The underlying blockchain technology and use of smart contracts ensures complete transparency and trustworthiness for all Energi Mine users. The company is currently streamlining the technology interface with the help of various partners to make the platform accessible globally in their effort to foster a community that supports small energy producers and companies wishing to decrease their energy costs.

Omar Rahim, CEO of Energi Mine said: “In a market flooded with theoretical blockchain projects, Energi Mine is delivering a physical solution to a real-world problem at the heart of the energy sector. Energy companies the world over are broken, locked into a spiral of consumption that seems them sell as much energy as possible for as high a price as possible. To sustain this volume of selling, consumers are driven to use more and pay more. This is terrible for the environment. Instead of changing the system, governments are locked into a similarly futile battle, discouraging waste through taxation and levies. While this approach can successfully dissuade wasteful behaviour to some extent, it does not encourage long-term positive change. This can only be achieved through positive behaviour changes. A carrot rather than a stick.”

“Energi Mine will enable individuals to make a positive environmental impact trade through both the ETK rewards programme and blockchain-based P2P energy platform. Through these two key pillars Energi Mine will greatly change consumers’ behaviour patterns around energy consumption for the better, and present a viable alternative to the broken traditional energy market system”

Based on the app’s reward mechanism, Energi Mine has begun building partnerships with major corporations and organisations, to help them reduce their energy consumption and financially reward their employees for doing so. One of the current UK partners, the Energy Manager’s Association, works with some of the largest companies and energy consumers in the UK, including Network Rail, who will be involved in the trials of Energi Mine’s Ethereum-based blockchain platform.

In addition to the rewards app, Energi Mine enables P2P energy transfers using Energi Tokens as a medium. This process allows Energi Mine users to buy energy from other small scale renewable energy generators (such as solar or wind) or to sell their surplus energy to members of the Energi Mine community.
