In rapidly developing blockchain industry the lack of useful dApps is a vivid stopping factor for cryptocurrency mass adoption. There are little to no ways to use BTC, ETH or other crypto except for investments or speculations. Targeting exactly this problem, BCShop.io releases the platform where Ethereum ecosystem is provided with real utility value. Being available in test network for months, the product is finally launched in main network at https://bcshop.io/.

The platform opens up great possibilities for cryptocurrency users to buy and sell goods and services with amazing benefits Ethereum blockchain provides. Focusing on digital products at the start, BCShop.io will be expanding to all areas of e-commerce and payments with cryptocurrency tech and regulation evolution.

With pleasurable user experience in mind, BCShop.io aims to become one stop solution for new age of blockchain powered e-commerce and payments.

“We are not cloning Amazon or E-Bay adding native cryptocurrency support. We are reinventing e-commerce and payments enhancing it with amazing opportunities blockchain technology has to offer. Today BCShop.io platform already supports automated business logic and incredibly low fees, smart escrow and unforgeable reputation system, decentralized exchange integration and flexible payment and pricing options. There are even more features to be implemented after initial launch.” States BCShop.io CEO and Founder Vladlen Manshin.

Made available thanks to successful token sale, the platform utilizes its native BCS token at full capacity by providing exclusive utility benefits to token holders. Functions implemented right from the start include 50% fee discount for merchants, cash back reward program for buyers as well as alternative to ETH payment option. Token purchase can be made right at the BCShop.io website due to seamless decentralized exchange integration.

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

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

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

Having produced two of 2018’s biggest bitcoin and blockchain events in Miami and Dubai, Keynote is honored to bring the World Blockchain Forum to the Big Apple as they host the first [WBF: Security Tokens & ICOs] on 12th and 13th June.

Held at Manhattan’s Metropolitan West, the intimate two day event includes a change in format with ‘ICO Pitch Panels’, where ICO projects will use a panel discussion platform to showcase their product moderated by blockchain visionary Moe Levin. Attendees will experience a comprehensive introduction from high profile industry experts including Vanessa Grellet, Bruce Fenton and Salil Donde, knowledgeable in not only blockchain and financial regulation but the complexities of Wall Street, offering invaluable insight into the future of security tokens.

Announcing lead partnerships with Victory Square Technologies and Polymath, this WBF speaker line up is set to deliver a groundbreaking agenda rounded off by Victory Square Director Peter Smyrniotis awarding the top 3 ICO/STO panelists with $100,000 shared investment.

“Though bitcoin and blockchain technology is rapidly becoming more understood, security tokens remain a black-box to most people. Which is strange, because as far as I can tell, the only real way to unlock the next trillion dollars of value in the ecosystem is by digitizing the traditional financial world through security tokens.” said Moe Levin, Founder and CEO of Keynote. “Showcasing the best and brightest in the industry has been the aim of Keynote since 2012, and we’re excited to be bringing the 7th edition of the World Blockchain Forum to New York City.”

PR: 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.

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.

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.

PR: 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

A Singapore-based VC fund specializing in groundbreaking tech projects has become an investor in Ubank’s blockchain ecosystem for selling and buying real goods with cryptocurrency

Ubank, the leading mobile payments app in the Eastern Europe, announced that it has secured an undisclosed amount of funding from the Singapore-based VC fund Amereus Group for the further development of its peer-to-peer blockchain platform Ubcoin Market that would allow its users to acquire cryptocurrency in exchange for real goods and its promotion in the booming Asian market.

Amereus Group is an investment fund supporting innovative tech-enabled businesses in fintech, blockchain, IoT, e-commerce, cloud services, biomedicine, mobile Internet, EdTech, VR, and AR. The fund’s portfolio includes biotech companies Cleabridge Health and Liquidia, a crowdinvesting platform Capbridge, an online aggregator of logistic carriers for international cargo Deliver, and other projects.

“We are excited to announce our decision to support the development of Ubcoin Market and its expansion into the Asian market. Ubcoin Market will become an integral part of Ubank, an app that has been successfully operating in the Eastern Europe for more than 5 years now and that is pre-installed on all Fly and Samsung smartphones, which is particularly impressive considering that only 9% of all ICO projects have a working business and/or product prior to the start of their crowdfunding campaign,“ comments Rim Hosup, Director at Amereus Group. “Apart from that, Ubank has ensured that their blockchain product meets all KYC and AML requirements and has conducted due diligence and all the other procedures proving the stability, transparency, and legality of the company and its structure. It is another very important point that sets Ubcoin Market apart from the majority of ICO projects and that has naturally influenced our decision”.

Ubcoin Market utilizes blockchain technologies to create an easy-to-use tool that would solve problems of people wishing to enter the world of crypto investments in a hassle-free manner as well as of experienced blockchain market participants in need of a convenient method of spending their crypto wealth. The project is planning to start its expansion into the Asian market during the 2nd and 3d quarters of 2019. Ubcoin Market is going to conduct a detailed preparatory research of separate national markets in order to adjust their product development strategy for local cultures, and Ubcoin Market’s partnership with the Singapore-based Amereus Group will be highly valuable in that respect.

“Asia is the most promising market for the development of our business — we believe that it is in these countries that our product will be most popular. That’s why we are thrilled to become partners with the investment fund Amereus Group that is willing to provide a financial support as well as a deep insight into different national markets of the continent,” says Felix Khachatryan, CEO and one of the co-founders of Ubank and Ubcoin Market.

Amereus Group is the third major investment fund that has supported Ubank: in 2013, Ubank received an $8 million investment from Runa Capital and, in April 2018, an undisclosed amount of funding from Inventure Partners.

Ubcoin Market is open to collaboration with other investment funds and pools focused on the ICO market and encourages them to contact the project now, at the stage of its token sale, when the project’s partners are guaranteed especially favourable terms.

Rumor confirmed
Leaks have appeared all over the web for the past month or so, but it’s official now. ASKfm announced its blockchain-based upgrade ASKfm 2.0 claiming to monetize knowledge in all of its forms. No wonder such a move form a major player couldn’t fly under the radar.

One giant leap
ASKfm is currently the largest Q&A social network worldwide, hosting 600 million questions monthly. The coming ASKfm 2.0 aims to transform the platform from the knowledge exchange of today into a knowledge economy. The company states that blockchain technology can effectively reshape access to knowledge and its evaluation. They tokenize interactions within the social media, rewarding people whose answers are well-received and demanded. This way, they claim, expertise gains intrinsic value and serves as a centerpiece for the new economy.

The way to sustainability
We reached out to Maxym Tsaryk, CEO at ASKfm. The company has been framing a blockchain solution for quite some time now, and they’re finally presenting it. Max says:
“We are settling our high-loaded blockchain Q&A platform — that’s why we are introducing a new cryptocurrency token not on a whim but out of conceptual necessity, as without it, the product wouldn’t be able to exist. Blockchain opens a path to democratic environments, to self-regulating economic models governed by market laws and mechanisms. We do not see the future for ASKfm, technologies and social networks without blockchain.”

Open for participation
215 million of existing ASKfm users will have the option to switch to ASKfm 2.0, register a wallet, and receive tokens for that. The community, as usual, will also be able to take part in ASKfm’s upcoming ICO event during the year. In total, the social media plans to sell $100,000,000 worth of tokens.

According to the company, its private sale is already ongoing with minimum amounts starting from a million dollars. The dates and terms of the crowdsale are yet to be determined. The broader public can currently only apply for the whitelist. For that, ASKfm launched a dedicated website.

PR: Bitcoin ABC releases vulnerability fix for Bitcoin Cash

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.

This Press Release contains information regarding the response to a critical vulnerability applicable to miners of Bitcoin Cash using Bitcoin-ABC version 0.17.0. Appropriate action has been taken to mitigate the impact of this vulnerability. This release is provided for information purposes only.

Bitcoin ABC 0.17.1 fixes this problem.

On April 26, 2018, Bitcoin-ABC developers were notified by unknown person(s) of the vulnerability. If exploited the flaw would have caused an unintended split in the Bitcoin Cash network.

An attacker could have constructed a malicious transaction which would be accepted by Bitcoin-ABC 0.17.0 and mined into a block. This block would be rejected by all other versions of Bitcoin Cash compliant implementations. The malicious transaction would contain the bitflag of 0x20 set in the signature hash type.

BUCash (Bitcoin Unlimited) and versions of Bitcoin-ABC prior to 0.17.0 could have been split from the majority Bitcoin Cash blockchain. Only Bitcoin ABC and BUCash nodes were included in the analysis of this vulnerability.

After analysis of the vulnerability and possible responses, Bitcoin-ABC developers prepared a patch for the vulnerability, and a private release, to distribute directly to mining pool operators. Due to the decentralized nature of the mining community it was not possible to reach everyone directly. This private release was provided to verified Bitcoin Cash miners to forward to trusted miners once they had upgraded.

We advise any Bitcoin ABC 0.17.0 users to upgrade to the latest version as soon as possible.

Bitcoin ABC will be taking several actions in order to prevent such an event from occuring again, as well as reduce the overall response time in the case of emergent issues in the future. Additionally, Bitcoin ABC is in discussions with industry participants to establish a formal bug bounty system.

Bitcoin ABC wants to thank the person(s) who disclosed this vulnerability responsibly. They provided a clear and professional report. If they are willing to come forward, we would like to ensure they receive a reward.

We also want to thank the miners for their cooperation, understanding, and for the fast and professional way in which they took action to protect the Bitcoin Cash network and its users.
