KEYRPTO Aims At $4.5 Trillion Future Of e-Commerce

By 2021 it is predicted the global sales from retail e-commerce will hit $4.5 trillion. That’s up from $1.3 trillion in 2014.

This not only shows how huge the global retail e-commerce is but also how rapidly it is expanding.

Many of those future e-commerce purchases will be conducted in fiat currency, but perhaps even more interesting is the possibility of cryptocurrency driven e-commerce.

Cryptocurrency is in most ways more well suited to the needs of globalised, ecommerce environment. You can use the same cryptocurrency to purchase goods and services in India, the United States, Japan or Germany or anywhere else in the globe.

What’s more conducting e-Commerce transactions in cryptocurrency removes the need for intermediaries. Intermediaries including the bank and credit card processor are involved with every credit card e-Commerce purchase that occurs. Each of these intermediaries charges fees for their services, inflating the costs for the merchant and the consumer.

So, if cryptocurrency is such an ideal solution for e-Commerce then why hasn’t taken off?

There are a number of reasons for this. Firstly, cryptocurrencies are an extremely new industry. While they have captured the public’s attention in 2017, the number of people who own and use cryptocurrency is still relatively small. This number is rapidly growing however.

Perhaps even more problematic are the technical challenges for merchants in accepting cryptocurrency and the fear of fraud or chargebacks.

This means that merchants have for the most part stayed away from offering cryptocurrencies as a payment method.

KEYRPTO is a new e-Commerce, platform which believes it has a solution to these challenges. It is offering 100% buyer protection. It is also offering an easy-to-use shop builder which will enable anyway to setup their own online shop and start accepting cryptocurrency.

KEYRPTO is also helping to solve the concerns of the consumers. KEYRPTO is using escrow and smart contracts to make sure that the merchant only receives payment when the goods or services are safely delivered to the customer.

Keyrpto ICO

KEYRPTO Token

KEYRPTO will have its own native token called KYT. KYT is used by merchants in order to register an online store. If they don’t own KYT tokens then they will not be able to sell on the KEYRPTO platform. Setting up this store will cost 50,000 KYT. Merchants will also be able to upgrade the position of their store through the platforms SEO services. Again this will be conducted in KYT tokens

KYT Token can also be used to buy and sell goods and services on the KEYRPTO platform. KEYRPTO will accept a range of popular cryptocurrencies but if KYT is used there will be a 50% reduction off the transaction fees. Consequently there will be a natural incentive to use KYT token, compared to other cryptocurrencies.

Perhaps most interesting for people looking to participate in the KYT token sale is that a percentage of KYT tokens are burned every time that a transaction occurs. The amount of tokens which are burned decreases, as the overall supply falls. This means that there will be a decreasing amount of KYT tokens available as the platform becomes more popular. This should help to cause KYT tokens to rise in value.

The KYT token sale is set for January 2018. Approximately 510 million KYT tokens will be offered, with unsold tokens burned at the end of the token sale. You can find out more by visiting:

How Savedroid Is Simplifying Crypto Saving

In 2018 the market capitalisation of Bitcoin was more than $171 billion. Popular cryptocurrencies like Ethereum ($106B) and Ripple ($43B), boast equally large numbers.

The massive growth in cryptocurrencies was one of the most talked about business stories in 2017.

Despite this there are many people who would like to save and invest in cryptocurrencies but currently don’t.

Common challenges include the difficulty in moving money into fiat or not knowing how to get started.

Savedroid is a German AI saving and investing platform that wants to help solve these challenges and open up crypto investing to everyone.

Alongside this they are incorporating innovative AI technology which will make this process even easier.

Here’s a look at how savedroid works.

How savedroid works

So we know that savedroid uses an AI algorithm to drive saving and investing recommendations, but let’s break that down into a little more detail, to show how it works.

First the user needs to define their savings goals. These are called “Wishes”.

“Wishes” can be anything but a good example might be to buy a new laptop or to pay for a trip abroad.

Savedroid ico

“Wishes” are things that the user wants but can’t afford immediately.

Next the user chooses an event which will trigger a saving transaction to occur.

For example, a user might want to tie their gym attendance with their saving goal for a holiday. Every time that they go to the gym and workout for 30 minutes, a saving transaction of €3 could be triggered.

Savedroid app can be linked to fitness trackers and so it will be able to trigger this saving event automatically every time that it occurs.

This set of rules and outcomes is called a “smoove”

A “smoove” always operates on an “if then, then that” basis.

In this case the “if then” is going to the gym and working out for 30 minutes.

The “then that” is to save €3.

What’s really smart though, is that the AI learns about the users goals and habits over times.

It then can offer personalised smooves which will help them to use saving and spending habits which will let them reach their wishes faster.

The goal is to make saving not only easier but also more fun.

Savedroid Initial Token Sale (ITS)

Savedroid will be using the SVD token to enable users to buy services on savedroid. The SVD token is being distributed in an Initial Token Sale (ITS). You can learn more about this below:

How Blockchain Recruitment Platform HireMatch Works In 5 Simple Steps

HireMatch is an innovative decentralised job marketplace which is using the power of the blockchain to disrupt the job board market.

Read on to find out exactly how HireMatch work:

#1 Company is looking for a new applicant

The HireMatch process begins with a company who is looking to hire a new employee. The HR manager at that company will decide how much they want to pay for finding that candidate but setting a bounty. For example they might choose to set the bounty at 10,000 HIRE tokens.

#2 Company acquires HIRE tokens

The company looking for a candidate will next need to acquire HIRE tokens. They can do this by either purchasing the HIRE tokens on the HIreMatch website or mobile app. Alternatively they can buy the tokens on a cryptocurrency exchange.

#3 Job listing published

The job listing with the company’s requirements is then published on HireMatch. This is done in the form of a smart contract, which will pay out when certain conditions are met.

#4 Agents receive a notification

Agents who will help to find relevant candidates will now receive a notification. These agents can be humans or applications connected to HireMatch via there API. Agents may use their own personal networks, social media sites and more to find relevant candidates to put forward.

#5 Agents are paid out via smart contract

Agents that contribute to an applicant being selected are paid out via the smart contract. This will be paid out to every agent who plays a role in the applicant being hire.

Hirematch

HIRE Token Sale

As noted above HIRE tokens are integral for setting the bounty. HIRE Tokens are being made available as part of a token sale. In total up to 78 million HIRE tokens are being made available as part of the token sale, with a fund raising goal of forty thousand ETH.

3 Reasons Why Caviar ICO Could Be A Winner

Real estate and cryptocurrency are two of the hottest investment plays in todays market. So getting exposure to both through a single token sounds like a winning proposition. Caviar token (CAV) is being offered through a token generation event set to last from December 12th 2017 to January 31st 2018. Here we’ll look at why this is one token sale that could be a winner.

#1 Ongoing income

Each quarter 75% of the net quarterly profits minus management fees and operating expenses will be distributed to Caviar token holders. This distribution will be in the form of ETH. This is done by smart contract providing complete transparency.

#2 Reinvestment and buyback

20% of net quarterly profits will be reinvested back in order to drive the growth of the value of the token. A further 5% will be used to buy back Caviar tokens. These tokens will then be burned. This will help to provide liquidity for Caviar token holders looking to sell. It will also decrease the available supply over time which should help to increase price.

#3 Caviar has minimised risk from default

Real estate in the Caviar ecosystem is meant to provide stability and income. Therefore one thing that investors will want to pay close attention to is the possibility of default. Caviar has aimed to minimise the possibility of default and subsequent losses on the loaned capital. To do this borrowers will need to provide a personal guarantee and a first lien position on the real estate asset. If foreclosure eventuates then Caviar will repossess the property. Caviar then has the ability to complete the construction and underwrite the asset. This means that even in the case of default Caviar should be able to complete the project profitably.

Need To Solve A Problem? Blockchain Startup Epsilon Has The Answer

Did you have a problem that you couldn’t solve?

Maybe you wanted to know where to find the best mechanic in your area.
Maybe you wanted to know how to evaluate schools in the new town that you just moved into.
Maybe you wanted to know which area of the country offers the best potential upside for real estate development.
Maybe you need a new app created for your startup.

Now picture a platform designed to connected you with experts in the field of the problem you are looking to solve.

In exchange for a fee you would have your problem solved. All you need to do is pose the problem. Even better you only have to pay the fee when your problem is solved.

That’s the idea behind Epsilon, a decentralised problem solving platform powered by the blockchain.

Read on to find more about Epsilon and the EPS token sale.

How Targeted Search Works On Epsilon

The customer for targeted search can be anyone who has a problem that they want to solve. It might be a student, an employee, or a company owner. It could even be a company or charity. No matter who the customer is the process is the same. The target search function aims to find an executor for that problem as quickly as possible.

Executors see the search applications which are most relevant to their ares of expertise. This means that whenever a customer had a problem, they have immediate access to experts in the field. Because the expert is being rewarded for their expertise by the reward that the customer has provided they always have a strong motivation to provide the best possible answer.

Experts can come from many different directions in order to help solve a problem. For example, for problems relating to automobiles, the experts for that field could be mechanics, car salespeople, car insurance professionals, factory workers, car enthusiasts etc. Their diverse knowledge in that field mean that they are more likely to be able to come up with the right solution to the problem.

Epsilon

Using EPS Tokens

EPS Tokens are a native cryptocurrency to the Epsilon platform. In order to start an application the customer must have enough EPS Tokens in their account to make the payment. The amount of EPS tokens which are attributed to the application will vary but will be based on the complexity of the task that they want to have performed. More complex task will require more EPS tokens to be made available.

Once the application has been executed by the executor it will be evaluated by the customer. If the customer confirms that the application has been executed fully then the EPS tokens are passed onto the executor. If the customer disagrees that the application has been executed completed then it is passed on a panel of moderators to resolve.

EPS Token is an ERC-20 compliant token created on the Ethereum blockchain. In total 90 million EPS tokens will be issued. Each quarter 30% of the profits made by the Epsilon platform will be used to redeem EPS tokens in the market. This will help to remove EPS tokens and potentially support price.

EPS Token Sale

EPS Tokens are being offered in a token sale. At the end of the token sale any unsold tokens will be destroyed. EPS tokens are being offered at a price of 0.00035 ETH is equal to 1 EPS. You can find out more information about the EPS token sale by visiting:

Transcodium Uses Blockchain Tech To Target Booming Market For Online Video

The amount of video that is now being consumer online is truly staggering.

To take just a few platforms. Each day users of Netflix and Facebook both consume up to 100 million hours. On Daily Motion there are 3.5 billion average monthly views.

Not only are we watching a huge amount of video content we are watching it everywhere and every kind of device.

This has created some inherent challenges. In order to present video content across so many different types of devices it is essential to transcode that video into the right type of format.

This has in turn created a massive demand for transcoding services. While large media giants like Netflix and Facebook have the resources in order to perform this type of transcoding at scale, other smaller players have struggled.

The big players in the industry are pushing up costs for transcoding moving the services beyond the reach of smaller enterprises and solopreneurs.

At the same time there is plenty of idle capacity that could be put to use profitably transcoding media content. The question is how to connect the two.

Transcodium believes that it has an answer. Using the blockchain and a decentralised network it is creating a platform which enables anyone with spare processing power to connect and earn rewards for performing transcoding services.

Overview of Transcodium

The Transcodium network has three main parties: customers, master nodes and workers.

The customers are those people who need to have their media files transcoding. They can have transcoding performed by connecting to the Transcodium platform and making a transcoding request. They are then provided with a price for performing this service. If they agree to the price then it will be send to the network for processing.

The Master Node can be thought of the manager of the network. Master Nodes need to have fast internet connections and plenty of processing power. The Master Node can also function as a worker if they choose to.

The Master Nodes will take the media file that the customer has supplied and then if necessary convert this into small chunks for the network. The file(s) are then encrypted and delegated to the workers for transcoding.

Workers perform the grunt work of actually transcoding the content. Anyone can choose to connect to the Transcodium network with whatever device they have available.

In return for providing these services the Master Node and the Worker are rewarded with tokens. They rewards split up 20% to the Master Node and 80% to the Worker.

Transcodium ICO

Transcodium Token

Used on the Transcodium Network is an ERC-20 token called TNS. This TNS token will be used for payments and providing rewards to the Master Nodes and the Workers.

TNS tokens are to be distributed in a token sale. This token sale will be divided into a pre-sale and a main sale. During the presale TNS tokens will be offered with a discount of 30% from the exchange rate of $0.276 to 1 TNS token.

Any unsold tokens will then be moved to the main token sale. In total 120 million TNS tokens will be made available for the presale and main sale.

How Community Works With Persona

In a decentralised environment a mechanism is needed in order to determine people are who they say they are.

Persona’s solution is to use the platforms community in order to check the identity of other users.

Community users who participate will need to confirm the authenticity of documents that users have provided and the identity of the people who being checked.

In return for providing these services they will be rewarded by receiving the platforms utility token called PRS.

Persona

Levels on the Persona Platform

Verification is provided by users. Users can provide up to 90% of the verification that a user will need to be fully verified. The remaining 10% of verification must come from trusted institution like a utility provider.

There are different levels which community verifiers are able to achieve. When they achieve a higher level they have more verifying power.

Someone who is Level 1 would only have 5% verifying power. If a user required verification and only level 1 users participated in the verifying process, then 18 users would be required in total for verification.

If someone has reached Level 6 then they have 30% verification power. In this scenario, if a user wanted verification and only level 5 verifiers were used then only 4 users would be required.

If someone verifies a users and their identity is later proved to be false, then that user is flagged and they lose their entire verification percentage.

Persona Token

PRS Tokens

PRS Tokens are the utility token used to incentivise users to be involved with verification. PRST tokens will be listed on cryptocurrency exchanges and have actual monetary value.

PRS Tokens are being distributed through a Token Generation Event (TGE) you can learn more about the TGE here:

Nitro Wants To Create A New & Fairer Economic Model For The Gaming Industry

Video games now earn more than nine times as much as Hollywood.

And nowhere is the demand for video games hotter than in Asia which boasts a staggering 1.14 billion players.

These gamers have also demonstrated that they are more than happy to spend real money on in-game purchases.

While this is great news for the games industry as a whole, the gains are not always being distributed evenly.

Two of the most important groups within the gaming ecosystem – gamers & up and coming games publishers – don’t see the full rewards of the billions of dollars being made in the industry.

Instead the vast majority of the value is captured by large game publishers.

Nitro has a plan to use the decentralised and democratising power of the blockchain in order to help change that situation.

It has developed a completely new economic model which would see gamers become far more participatory in the games which are chosen to be published. Gamers would also be able to enjoy a share in the financial rewards from teh games that they support.

Smaller games publishers that need capital can use the Nitro platform in order to get funding where it might be difficult to do so otherwise.

Why small games publishers struggle with funding – and what Nitro can do to help

Small games publishers often struggle to attract funding from traditional sources such as banks, VCs, and angel investors because the team lacks a strong track record of success.

It is difficult for VCs or angel investors to assess the quality of the games that these publishers are creating because they are not gamers themselves.

This creates a situation where games that undoubtly have a real appeal are not funded.

Nitro takes a different approach. Accepting that upcoming games publishers by there very nature are not necessarily going to have an extensive track record, they instead look at the quality of the games to decide who to invest in.

This selection process is performed in two stages.

First an industry group of experts selects the PGP (Promising Game Publishers) then they believe should be presented to the Nitro community.

Selected games from these PGPs are then put to holders of NOX tokens to vote on whether they should be funded or not.

Nitro ICO

The games that are voted for receive funding.

The benefit of this system is that it is being curated and voted for by people who understand what makes a great game. It also creates that all important initial audience for the game. The NOX holders who vote for a game to be made are almost certainly likely to play the game as well.

In return for this funding the games publisher pays a percentage of the revenue back to the Nitro platform.

Using NOX & NOD Tokens

Used for in-game purchases will be Nitro Dollars (NOD). These are a stable currency which is linked to the the USD. One NOD Is always the equivalent of one USD.

NOX and NOD can be freely exchanged back and forth amongst one another. On the Nitro Marketplace will be an online store where NOX and NOD can be interchanged.

NOX Crowd Sale

NOX is being distributed in a crowdsale from 1st December to 26th December 2017. You can learn more here:

Arcona ICO Targets 1 Billion User AR Market

By 2020 its predicted that there will be 1 billion users of Augmented Reality (AR).

Augmented Reality, a technology which places digital elements into the real world, could have a transformational impact on the way that we live.

While augmented reality holds great promise it is not without its challenges.

Currently there is no one single tools which enables users to easily interact with augmented reality. Indoor AR projects are relatively easy to constructor, but outdoors one hold much greater challenges. And there are multiple different AR platforms which currently only support one AR enabled device.

Arcona is an innovative AR ecosystem built on the blockchain that believes it has a solution to those problems. Here’s who Arcona believes that it can help AR reach its full potential.

Arcona

Cross-Platform Solution

Arcona is a cross platform solution meaning that it will support any device. Users of Arcona will be able to interact with digital elements in real world locations using any type of AR enabled device.

Working In Outdoor Environments

Arcona allows you to remotely place AR objects with a high degree of accuracy in a changing physical world environment. This is possible because Arcona doesn’t use GPS but rather real world objects as markers.

Single Tool For Access

Arcona will be a free public information space that is accessible to all users.

In order to fund the development of this augmented world Arcona is currently holding a token sale. Distributing during this token sale will be the Arcona token. This token will be used in order to buy, rent, sell and lease land within Arcona.

The Arcona Token

Used throughout the Arcona ecosystem will be the Arcana token. This is being offered as part of a public crowd sale. You can learn more about the Arcona crowd sale here:
