Bitcoin Evangelist Charlie Shrem Joins Particl’s Team of Advisors

Bitcoin Press Release: Particl today introduces Bitcoin pioneer Charlie Shrem to its team of advisors. An early Bitcoin entrepreneur with a history of launching and growing successful companies inside and outside the cryptocurrency space,

Dec. 28th, 2017, Zug, Switzerland: Charlie Shrem brings unparalleled access to services and partners within the blockchain ecosystem. Charlie was founding member of the Bitcoin Foundation and co-founded one the the first and largest Bitcoin companies, BitInstant, in 2011. BitInstant allowed people to efficiently move their money into and within the Bitcoin economy in a fast and familiar way. Partnering with MoneyGram, Charlie brought crypto to people’s front door with the ability to deposit cash for Bitcoin at over 700,000 locations in the United States at its peak.

“I’m excited to be working with Particl,” says Charlie Shrem. “As I see privacy, fungibility and ease of use the main pillars for any crypto. What if there were no needles in the haystack?”

He also is the Business Development Advisor for Changelly, an instant cryptocurrency exchange service that lets you exchange one crypto to another in seconds and supports fiat money payment for any listed crypto. Changelly is an exchange without accounts that makes moving from one crypto to another fast and easy while customers maintain their privacy and control.

Charlie’s penchant for projects that aim to give freedom back to users by solving a problem that exists in services people use everyday aligns nicely with Particl‘s vision: to foster a fully independent, decentralized economy and provide a sustainable environment of collaboration and innovation that empowers peers across different blockchain projects while respecting their rights to freedom and privacy.

Particl is built on Bitcoin not Ethereum as has become the norm in the crypto space this year. Adding to this battle-tested protocol at its foundation, Particl has layered privacy enhancements on the latest code (0.15.1) which no other project has yet done on Bitcoin; Confidential Transactions (CT) and Ring Confidential Transactions (RingCT). Particl created its own blockchain that allows intrinsic value to be layered onto their utility token (PART) through voting rights, governance control or passive income with proof-of-stake consensus. Currently Particl is finishing a decentralized marketplace, Particl Marketplace, which will be a place to spend and earn PART but will not be exclusive to only Particl users.

“We are excited to get some input from an industry heavyweight,” says Ryno Mathee, Particl Founder. “Charlie’s influence and experience will help us grow tremendously.”

As a Strategic Advisor and Mentor to the Particl team, Charlie understands the project’s set of core values which alongside privacy includes crypto-agnosticism. The marketplace is the next step towards Particl’s vision of a decentralized economy and is slated for an alpha release in the first quarter of 2018. Not intended to be built exclusively for Particl users, Charlie will be instrumental in forging partnerships and opening opportunities so that most major cryptocurrencies, and possibly fiat, will be able to be spent on the Particl Marketplace.

About Particl

Particl’s team is growing, currently 16 full-time paid contributors and 20 total and is self-sustaining through the Particl Foundation, a non-profit organization in Zug. Particl’s privacy token and upcoming marketplace are the corner stones being placed for an independent decentralized economy. With the latest Bitcoin codebase as its foundation, Particl has brought privacy to the blockchain with CT and RingCT for the first time. Particl has an active community that will expand as other crypto communities learn a place exists where they can use their coins to buy products.

ARK and OKEx Announce Partnership Listing ARK to Trade Immediately!

Bitcoin Press Release: Digital Currency exchange OKEx has announced the listing of ARK on its’ platform.

22th December 2017, Lons le Saunier, France – ARK is now a registered currency on OKEx. The platform currently offers more than 40 token trading pairs and 5 futures pairs. OKEx’s industry leading BTC futures trade has nearly $1.5B of volume a day and are widely regarded as the gold standard for the industry.

OKEx have served millions of customers in over 100 countries, with about 60% of users originating from China. This platform has solidified itself as a highly respected platform that will provide ARK with a brilliant partnership to trade the coin.

ARK is an ambitious and forward thinking crypto project aiming to create a user-friendly platform for mass consumer adoption via an ecosystem of linked blockchains. The ambition here is to become the “All-in-One” Blockchain Solution.

The ARK Project

Rather than building an entire blockchain from scratch, companies can simply use the existing capabilities in the ARK ecosystem with their own set of delegates for their own purposes – all at the click of a button. This is huge for consumer adoption and the advancement of blockchain technology as it eliminates two major obstacles – developer knowledge and starting a chain from scratch.

Put simply, ARK is aiming to becoming a one-stop solution for all crypto needs, providing cryptocurrency solutions, smart contracts, point-of-sale solutions for merchants, interoperability via Smart Bridge/ACES, and more. ARK is revolutionary and has some fantastic technology behind it, which is why it’s no surprise that OKEx has adopted it on their platform.

2 Stage ARK Giveaway

To celebrate this, OKEx is holding a 2 stage giveaway to the total of 75,000 ARK coins. In stage 1, OKEx users who follow OKEx throughout social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, WeChat, Weixin) will receive a code. With this code OKEx users can join the free ARK airdrop lucky draw game on WeChat for a chance to win 10,000 free ARK tokens.

For Stage 2 all those who register new OKEx accounts during the promotional period, when total ARK trading volume on OKEx exceeds 10 million tokens, all contributors/participants to this volume (any amount) will stand a chance to enter a lucky draw. The total number of ARK tokens being distributed during the lucky draw will be 65,000.

With the ability to be able to use all services that are built in the ARK Ecosystem using ARK tokens, there may not be a need to keep track of 100s of different tokens/coins or worry about having to buy and sell them on exchanges in order to access each individual service that uses its own token/coin. Not only that, but ARK has such a strong innovate and technological foundation that confidence in the project is at an all time high.

OKEx will be opening ARK wallets for deposits on Dec 20, 2017 at 16:00 (Hong Kong Time).

About OKEx
OKEx is a leading digital asset trading platform, offering token to token and derivative trading to users globally. They currently offer more than 40 token trading pairs and 5 futures pairs. OKEx’s industry leading BTC futures trade has nearly $1.5B of volume a day and is widely regarded as the gold standard for the industry.

Fire Lotto has Launched the First Truly Transparent Decentralized Blockchain Lottery Using Bitcoin

Bitcoin Press Release: Fire Lotto, an international Blockchain lottery built on the Ethereum protocol, has launched this December. The first stage of theToken Sale is ongoing and takes the form of a private pre-sale of their token FLOT.

The lottery industry is facing challenges due to the growth of the digital economy.

A lottery game built on the Ethereum blockchain is sure to innovate the global lottery industry, but until recently it was not possible to have a truly transparent and non-centralized system for betting. Blockchain technology can help us solve the problem of single server online betting which may belong to a single person.

In fact, Fire Lotto creates lottery tickets which are impossible to forge by using the cryptocurrency ETH as a main method of payment, so collection/distribution of bets and paying of winnings are absolutely transparent. The code powering the program is available for anyone to view on the Whitepaper

“Worldwide demand for truly transparent, fair services has grown alongside the advance of technologies that enable the change. The distributed, decentralized nature of blockchain technology offers tremendous opportunities for financial technology innovation, and, similarly, for gaming industry modernization.”

The Fire Lotto lottery works rather straightforwardly; the prize pool is created by the funds collected ticket sales. Players are able to guess the correct sequence of numbers, as they would with other lottery systems both online and offline. There are three draw lotteries offered by Fire Lotto: 4/20, 5/36, and 6/45.  There is also the instant lottery called Roger’s wheel, which has a fortune wheel with 21 numbers. It offers bets from 0,007 ETH with coefficient from 2 to 20. If you guess the right number, then you’ll receive your bet multiplied by a chosen coefficient.

The minimum size of a guaranteed jackpot is fixed—3000 ETH (~ USD 1,000,000) for the 6/45 lottery. If nobody wins the main prize in a draw, it will be rolled over to the next draw and increased. The jackpot will keep growing until it finds its’ winner. However, there will be five prize categories with a different prize depending on how accurately the player predicts lottery numbers.

Fire Lotto Lottery already launch in Ethereum test net. You can try and test it. Is is simple and understandable as traditional lotteries are.

Fire Lotto Token Sale

The private pre-sale of tokens will end on the 15th of January 2018. 77 million FLOT tokens will be sold during the event to aid in the development of the platform. The pre-sale runs from the 15th of January 2018 until the 15th of February 2018. The main sale will run from the 15th of March 2018 until the 15th of April 2018. 100 million tokens are to be released in total.

Healthureum: Blockchain And Healthcare Combined Seamlessly, Token Pre-Sale Begins December 16th.

18 December, 2017, Tallinn, Estonia Blockchain-based, health-focused startup Healthureum has announced its intention to tackle the expected health care expenditure, which is expected to rise between 2.4% and 7.5% by 2020 globally. The Estonia-based startup will be Making the utmost endeavours to contain and ideally reduce these expenses. Healthureum aims to reduce inefficiencies in operations, resources, data, drug sourcing, and technology.

An incentivized measure is starting to prove popular across the globe, particularly in Japan where the METI program rewards companies, which engage in health preventative care and productivity. For this issue, Healthureum’s blockchain based solution offers a solution. Technology-driven healthcare will benefit all stakeholders and patients with improved access to expertise and services while reducing costs, resources, infrastructure and operational requirements in the process.

Forbes.com and CTO Malcolm Wilkinson confirmed that:

“In 2015, a record 112 million healthcare record data breaches occurred due to IT hacks. Now imagine how the use of an interoperable blockchain could mitigate this risk due to its cryptographic nature, bringing a new level of integrity to healthcare data management.”

Deloitte has identified telehealth, virtual reality, and immunotherapy among the top 10 innovations in healthcare to “achieve more for less”, with only one major struggle in the form of the technical ability to integrate and share data between systems effectively.

Healthureum’s Mission

Healthureum’s blockchain-based resolution is a dynamic and multi-functional ecosystem designed to bring innovative Healthcare services, transforming the way we manage our healthcare. Healthureum guarantees its users access to Physicians, Specialists, quality medical infrastructure and the opportunity to access first of its kind innovative treatments, including philanthropic sponsorship programs.

Healthureum LPC Danuta Kowalska stated that:

“Through blockchain, we can achieve decentralized healthcare, closing the gap between services: through transparency, security and most importantly accountability.”

Blockchain and smart contract technology integration will bring the S3, standardization, scalability and social responsibility.

This will allow token holders world-class infrastructure such as data transparency (patients will have full consolidation of their data accessible at any time), along with real-time, historic medical data, in an instant. This will enable the secure sharing of patients medical data between patients and healthcare stakeholders, with permission layers. Patients will be able to receive video consultations for faster diagnosis from a certified consultant, with a quick and safe payment system. This leaves us with a well-trusted ecosystem which promotes patient data integrity and privacy.

Healthureum’s platform is designed on the Ethereum based blockchain using smart contract technology to significantly improve efficiency and interoperability of healthcare services. The Healthureum token (HTH), which is at the very core of Healthureum’s project, will be used as the transactional medium of choice. HTH will act not only as a payment option within the Healthureum network, it will compensate medical practitioners who offer referrals and second opinions. Patients can also be rewarded for sharing their medical data for research programs within the Healthureum clinics and laboratories, while masking their personal identity.

Healthureum is honoured to welcome Mr. Malcolm Wilkinson, data scientist and CTO for Healthureum. His extensive background in big data, and more recently in data science and python will prove valuable in implementing the framework for data systemization which is at the core of the Healthureum initiative.

Healthureum CTO and data scientist Mr Malcolm Wilkinson stated that:

“By adopting a decentralized approach to data management, we eliminate human errors, third-party influence, the risk of tampering and manipulation. Thus, we can achieve a more robust means for storing and sharing data securely”

There is an abundance of knowledge and experience in healthcare, technology, finance, data science and international business lines, among the Healthureum team, which will act as the heart and brain behind this innovative project.

Online Retail Startup Benebit Uses Blockchain Technology To Disrupt The Online Shopping Industry, ICO Commences Jan 22, 2018

Bitcoin Press Release: Online Retail Startup Benebit used Blockchain Technology to disrupt online shopping industry. The service uses an app and physical card to allow users to collect loyalty points, exchange them for Benebit tokens, and spend them at all of your favorite online stores.

12 December, 2017, Tortola, British Virgin Islands – British Virgin Islands-based retail startup Benebit is making big plans to take the online retail market by storm. Benebit is launching a platform that will offer global consumers the chance to convert loyalty points into Benebit Tokens, that are then used to buy online goods similar to fiat currency. The platform will look to do away with the aging system that requires retailers to carry numerous and separate loyalty cards, replacing them with one single card and an application that will cover thousands of businesses across the globe. The Benebit crowdsale will give retail and cryptocurrency enthusiasts an opportunity to support the company from the ground floor and hold Benebit tokens for future use. The ICO accepts numerous cryptocurrencies and commences on January 22, 2018.

It is no secret that e-commerce has already disrupted shopping in a major way. From books to clothes and even groceries, consumers are choosing utility and time savings by taking their business online. This has revolutionized the way consumers buy products and services, benefiting retailers and consumers. Retailers see substantial savings on brick and mortar operations while customers save both time and money. However, online retailers are now facing the same issue that plagued traditional retailers, specifically in the issues around how they offer efficient customer loyalty and retention programs.

So how are retailers addressing customer loyalty?

Cashback and loyalty programs are a way to incentivize customers by giving them an amount of cash for every purchase they make. The main idea is to create a better consumer-merchant relationship by facilitating consumers and making them feel valued. And, naturally, consumers are inclined to participate as well. According to a survey by Loyalty360, 83% of consumers participate in at least one loyalty program, and 13% participate in more than five. With that being said, the efficiency of those programs are tragic. Most programs are too slow and absolutely illiquid, as a consumer can only spend his or her “points” on the same retailer, as well as losing them after a certain period.

Disrupting online shopping through blockchain technology

With both retailers and consumers in mind, Benebit.io aims to revolutionize the world of cashback and loyalty programs through the adoption of blockchain technology. How? Benebit will replace the point system from the last century with the Benebit Token, allowing users to exchange their Benebit Tokens into any major cryptocurrency or fiat currency. Now, customers do not have to worry if they are in the UK or Europe, as they will always be able to shop from their favorite brands all over the world using one single Benebit Token (BNE).

How does it work?

For consumers, the startup will be introducing the Benebit App, as well as the Benecard in 2018. While shoppers can use the app to find brands, shop and store their points, the Benecard solves the longstanding problem of countless loyalty cards. The card is essentially a hardware wallet for all cashback points, which can be spent anywhere as the proprietary technology allows users to use it as fiat money or a credit card.

From a business point of view, Benebit empowers retailers with a Point of Sale System, which not only collects customer shopping data but also allows for management of internal processes such as inventory tracking, staff payroll, and vendor listing. In addition, Benebit’s proprietary technology lowers retailers’ transaction fees as intermediaries are cut out and all transactions happen on the Benebit network. Last but not least, brands are able to interact with customers (and vice-versa) through the Benebit app, increasing engagement.

Crypto hype or an actual use case?

While there are countless blockchain projects built around nothing more than a few hype words, Benebit looks to have an actual use case where the benefits of the blockchain technology add real value to both businesses and consumers.

Caviar Exceeds Pre-Sale Goal of $1.5M, Announces Crowdsale Launch & Financing for First Real Estate Property in December

Bitcoin Press Release: Caviar’s Crypto + Real Estate in One Token Approach Validated with Investment in Pre-Sale Exceeding Goal, ICO Aims to Raise $25M

12 December 2017, The Cayman Islands – Today Caviar launches its crowdsale after announcing a successful pre-sale that exceeded its goal with over $1.5M raised in 7 days. Caviar is pioneering a unique approach to create a dual-purpose token and crowdfunding platform built on the Ethereum blockchain. Caviar’s token offers access to income producing real estate debt and fast growing cryptocurrencies, with built-in downside protection and automatic diversification.

Caviar’s team, who have successfully managed a multi-million-dollar real estate debt fund since 2013, are putting their established processes to work to immediately start making profits for their token holders with the financing of their first real estate property in December. Caviar’s token generating event (ICO) will run until January 31, 2018 with the goal of raising $25 million in total.

As the blockchain investment expert and Caviar advisor David Drake, Chairman of LDJ Capital notes, investors in the Caviar ICO are uniquely offered real assets.

“While there are immense profits to be made from the volatility of the market, investors of cryptocurrency are offered little in the way of real assets. Caviar has a compelling offering with a diversified approach that includes real estate,” said Drake.

Caviar Technology: AI Driven Model

As explained in the recent company blog post “Caviar: Why Diversification Is Always a Sound Strategy, Especially in a Crypto Crash or Bear Market,” Caviar leverages an AI-powered approach, the proprietary Intelligent Predictive Model (IPM) for crypto-assets and crypto-currency price forecasting — both long and short term — which enhances predictability as well as asset allocation. Unlike other ICO’s, Caviar’s IPM gives it a competitive advantage, and its’ exposure to two uncorrelated asset classes enhances Caviar’s ability to generate profits, even in down markets.  Also, using CAView, Caviar can guarantee transparency and ensure honest and anonymous profit sharing and distribution.

Caviar Is Committed to Driving Value for Investors: First Real Estate Backed Loan to Be Issued on December 15th

“In addition to diversification and downside protection, Caviar is committed to immediately start making profits for token holders. Therefore, we are proud to announce that Caviar is already moving forward with a new real estate development project, as the financing of the first property for Caviar in December is underway,” commented Guy Neumann, Caviar partner.

As noted in the company’s news blog, heading into 2018, the real estate investment processes that Caviar has developed and maintained over the course of its five-year successful history will stay consistent, including working with established and full-time dedicated real estate developers who are well-vetted.

“For this new deal we will be working with a real estate developer with whom we have already financed several deals.  Even though we know this developer and his work, we still approached the underwriting in the same way.  We reviewed his back end market analysis against ours and completed a home inspection prior to issuing an official commitment,” noted Neumann.
