ArchiCoin Is Targeting Massive Growth In Data With An Innovative Decentralised Storage Solution

By 2020 there will be approximately 1.7 MB of new data being created second for every human on the planet.

This tidal wave of data neccesitates innovative storage solutions.

ArchiCoin is a new entrant into the space providing a decentralised network that anyone can connect to and provide storage.

Users who upload files will have their data separated and encrypted then stored through-out the network. Using a private key only they will have access to their data.

Read on to find more about how ArchiCoin works and there upcoming ICO.

How Mining Works With ArchiCoin

Users are rewarded for providing their computing power to maintain the system. This is done automatically through a random, lottery like process which distributes ArchiCoin. The ratio at which ArchiCoin is paid out will depend on the amount of computing power that has been provided.

The Benefits Of Using A Mining System

Using a mining system for decentralised storage has a number of benefits. These include relatively low power consumption, ease of adjusting and scaling the system and low heat generation.

Security For The ArchiCoin Network

ArchiCoin will have a number of features which are designed to protect the network. One of the most important of these is that the network is entirely decentralised. Unlike a centtralied storage solution there is not one single point of failure. This can help to prevent the majority of attacks that may be aimed at a storage solution like ArchiCoin. Secondly, all users are provided with a private key which mean that only they have access to the encrypted data which is stored on the network. The cryptography used in the network should also be sufficient to avoid any brute force type attacks.

ArchiCoin ICO

The main ArchiCoin ICO will see 12.5 billion ARCHI tokens made available for sale. The token will be priced at $0.002 and there will be hard cap of $30 million for the sale. During the first two days of the ICO there will be a 25% discount on ArchiCoin tokens.

How Smart Containers Is Building A Fully Autonomous, Decentralised Logistics Ecosystem

The logistics system which shifts goods across the globe is often overly complex.

It is estimated that to shop a single parcel between two countries can sometimes involve as many as two hundred separate documents and manual emails.

This means that the costs of actually running a logistics system and are more expensive than the actual transportation costs.

It is a system which is ripe for technological disruption.

That is certainly the opinion of Swiss based container business Smart Containers.

This five year old business wants to create an autonomous logistics system which could lead to massive efficiency and cost savings.

To fund that vision they are conducting an Initial Coin Offering (ICO). People who want to back the vision for an autonomous blockchain will be able to do through the ICO.

How Smart Containers Works

Smart Containers will be creating a fully integrated logistics ecosystem which is open to all of the participants in the industry. This ecosystem will be called LOGI CHAIN. The idea is to completely remove all of the paperwork and emails from the system. Billing will be conducted using cryptocurrencies and smart contracts.

Each unit which is being shipped will be mirrored by a virtual product which will sit on the blockchain. A unit could be a container, a product or a parcel. All of the documents for that unit will be linked to the virtual product. These can then be made available to the relevant parties during the shipping process.

Smart Containers ICO

Smart Containers are offering two different tokens in two separate ICOs. One of the ICOs is for the SMARC token. Ownership of SMARC token gives the holder a proportional share of 20% of the dividends that are earned by the system. These profits will be distributed in the middle of March each year.

In total there will 120 million SMARC tokens offered, out of a total supply of 150 million SMART tokens. SMARC tokens are being offered at a price of 1 SMARC is equal to $0.423.

The other ICO is for the LOGI token. The LOGI token will be the method of payment within the system. There will be a total supply of 100 million LOGI tokens, with 20 million LOGI tokens being offered in the ICO.

ZenithCard Plans To Provide A Global Cryptocurrency Debit Cards

33% of millennials stated that the feel that they won’t need a bank within five years.

If the crypto FinTech startup ZenithCard fulfils their vision they just might be right.

ZenithCard aims to deliver a debit card which make it as easy to make payment and withdrawals using crypto-assets as it is with traditional fiat currencies.

To fund the development, operations and promotion of the platform, ZenithCard is undertaking an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) for the native ZENT token.

In this guide we will look at the ZENT token, so you can asses whether it is a project you feel is worth backing.

Payment Partnerships

ZenithCard has plans to partner with MasterCard in order to gain access to their payment terminal network. This will also enable ZenithCard holders to make withdrawals using their ZenithCard at ATMS using MasterCard. In addition ZenithCard is exploring the possibility of a partnership with the Visa Payment Network.

As part of their relationship with the payment partner ZenithCard will need to charge fees. These fees are then split between the payment partner and ZenithCard. These will be one of the main sources of revenue for the platform.

Accepted Tokens With ZenithCard

ZenithCard will work with a variety of different digital tokens. These include ZENT, ETH and BTC. ZenithCard will also integrate with up to fifty tokens. These exact tokens will be decided in a community vote following the ICO.

Benefits of ZenithCard

Convienence: ZenithCard makes it possible for holders of tokens to easily make everyday purchases and to make fiat withdrawals from ATMs using their token balances. This doesn’t require any complex exchange processes in order to take place.

Elimination of Third Party Risk: Users of ZenithCard will be able to store and transfer tokens without the need for any third party intermediaries. As a consequence they will never be exposed to third party risks or costs.

Added Value: The ability to store and use tokens with ZenithCard will add value for other tokens. This includes stable coins, asset backed tokens and other token assets.

Target Market For ZenithCard

ZenithCard will start with targeting the Ethereum community who are looking for a way to be able to easily make purchases using their Ethereum, Bitcoin or other ERC-20 token balances. These are users who already understand cryptocurrencies and have crypto assets but currently don’t have a convenient payment method. As the project matures ZenithCard plans to reach out to the wider public. These are users which may not have experience with crypto assets or lack knowledge of the technical information around cryptocurrencies, but are interested in an easy way to spend using these tokens. Because ZenithCard uses a debit card that everyday people are familiar with, they feel this could be a good bridge for these users.

ZenithCard ICO

1 Billion ZENT tokens are being minted, with 600 million of these ZENT tokens made available for sale during the ICO. At the end of the ICO all unsold ZENT tokens will be burned. The goal for the ZENT ICO is to raise approximately $USD 28 million. ZENT tokens are being priced at 1 ETH equals 10,000 ZENT with a minimum purchase price of 0.2 ETH.

How Seal Plans To Use Blockchain & Chip Technology To Combat $1.7 Trillion Counterfeit Market

In 2015 it was estimated that the global counterfeit market was valued at $1.7 trillion.

It’s a huge problem, but one that might soon be solved by a simple tap or scan with any smart phone.

Seal is introducing a exciting new solution to the problem of counterfeit products. By adding a NFC chip to a product and then linking that chip to a decentralised database on the blockchain, Seal is able to provide a transparent and reliable record of the authenticity of the individual product.

Customers can access that information by simply using their seal app to scan the product that they are considering buying. Instantly that customer can determine whether or not the product is genuine or not.

Background to Seal

Seal is the creation of Bart and Joris Verschoor. Bart and Joris previously developed a social mobile game startup. In 2013 they began to put the hardware from game startup towards Bitcoin mining. They then discovered that this blockchain technology could be combine with NFC technology in order to prevent counterfeiting. The idea was borne then but didn’t come until full fruition in 2017 when they started to put their plan into action.

Overview of Seal

Seal creates a tokenised version of each product. This is done by embedding the seal chip into the product and then connecting that chip to a unique entry on the blockchain. This allows consumers and brands to immediately verify if a product is authenticate or not. But, also enables a range of product services such as the ability to transfer ownership of a product with a complete record being stored on the blockchain. It can also be used for brand activation campaigns and product analysis.

Key Details of Seal Token Sale

492 million seal tokens will be distributed in a token sale. This is out of a total supply of 1.2 billion seal tokens. Seal tokens are being offered at a price of 7000 seal tokens to 1 ETH. You can find out more information about seal and the token sale by visiting:

How Worldopoly Mobile Strategy Game Uses AR, Geo-Positioning & Blockchain Tech

What happens when you combine a strategy game with geo-positioning, augmented reality and blockchain technology?

The answer is Worldopoly.

Using Worldopoly players will be able to buy virtual streets which are positioned on real world locations. On these streets the players will be able to build homes. Once complete the player will be able to earn revenues and unlock new opportunities.

Perhaps the most attractive aspect is that the revenues that are earned will have real world value. The tokens earned through playing Worldopoly will be exchangeable into other cryptocurrencies on crypto exchanges.

This means that simply by playing the game, users will be able to build up their cryptocurrency asset portfolio.

How Worldopoly Works

One of the biggest problems with getting involved with crypto-assets is that it can be relatively difficult to get started. This is not the case with Worldopoly which has been designed to make adoption as easy as possible.

Players who want to use the game just need to download and register. Each player get a base number of coins which they can use to buy one street and one building that they choose.

Geo-positioning is then combined with augmented reality in order to allow the player to see the progress that they are making.

When a building generates tokens which need to be collected within a certain time frame. If the tokens aren’t collect then they are made available to the community, which can collect them using the AR extension. When a player walks down a street which is owned by another player this earns the owner additional income.

Buildings can be improved upon by paying with coins. Players can choose to co-ordinate forming alliances, so that they can create larger building structures.

How XYO Networks Plans To Enable Smart Contracts Enable With The Real World

The future of our consumer based society is online. By 2040 it is predicted that 95% of all purchases will be facilitated by eCommerce.

This shift towards an almost completely eCommerce environment will transform the world we live in. It will almost certainly necessitate the development of new logistical solutions to enable this new shopping environment.

One of the biggest challenges is providing accurate and real time tracking. Centralised methods are of course possible, but decentralisation offers the greatest opportunity to scale tracking without inflating costs.

Actually achieving such as a decentralised system of product tracking has until now not been possible. That might be about to change though thanks to XYO Network.

XYO Network wants to facilitate a completely decentralised way of providing real time location data. This is thanks to a blockchain which interacts with the real world through location verifying beacons. There are already over one million of these location verifying beacons that have already been built, and there is the potential for hundreds of thousands more to be rapidly deployed.

What this means is that consumers will be able to confirm the location of a product that they have ordered at each stage of its journey. This will be through a verified network of location beacons. All of the location data will be stored on the blockchain providing an immutable record.

How XYO Network Works

Users will be able to use the XYO Network Web App in order to submit a query to track an object. They will do this be entering the public address of the object that they are looking to locate. This could be something that they bought online, but any object with a public address can be tracked such as vehicles, luggage and more.

Users will be able to connect to their location beacons to the XYO Network. In return for providing verification data they will be rewarded with XYO tokens.

XYO Token Sale Overview

The XYO token sale began on March 20th 2018 at an initial price of 1 ETH to 100,000 XYO. As more XYO tokens are purchased the price of the XYO token increase. This means that early investors are rewarded for their participation. Once the price reaches 1 ETH is equal to 33333 XYO the price will free until the end of the token sale. At the end of the token sale all of the unsold XYO tokens will be burned. In total the project supply of XYO tokens is 24,158,373,684.
