Blockchain-Powered Green Energy Startup WePower Announces Platform Launch and Fundraiser

· August 17, 2017 · 7:00 pm

Gibraltar-based green energy exchange platform WePower is now accepting fundraising registrations as the company gears up for its upcoming launch. The WePower pre-launch fundraiser is similar to a crowdfunding campaign, offering contributors the first chance to receive WePower tokens, in return for Ethereum contributions.

[Note: This is a press release.]


WePower

A percentage of the clean energy produced and traded over the WePower platform will be allocated to energy tokens and stored in a smart contract. The WPR digital currency will be tokenized energy stored in a smart contract and accrued with the growth of WePower platform.

WePower has already secured all partner agreements that would facilitate the launch, and all necessary Letters-of-Intent are in place. The Beta version is already live, and another major blockchain update is on the way, which will enable green energy investors to enter the market directly. By purchasing green energy, the platform, investors will finance the development of green energy producers and improve the market in the process.

For some time, most leading scientists have strongly supported the belief that CO2 emissions, brought about through manmade climate change are having a detrimental effect on the world’s climate. These emissions, driven largely by the fossil fuel industry and deforestation, are poised to exacerbate the rise of global temperatures to an unsustainable level by the end of this century. One of the primary solutions to combat this serious problem is through a massive global investment in renewable forms of energy.

WePower is focused on developing a distributed clean energy network based on blockchain and smart contract technologies. It intends to accelerate the shift from a centralized fossil fuel system to a more localized, decentralized clean energy system. The WePower platform connects existing and new renewable energy producers with companies and people willing to switch to clean energy and invest in a 100% renewable future.

Through careful implementation of blockchain technology and smart contracts, WePower is helping solve multiple problems of energy sector at the same time. The platform also brings transparency to the amount of green energy produced, consumed, and how much CO2 emission was reduced in the process. In addition, energy developers cut intermediary commission fees or raise less expensive funds for new start-ups by selling future energy current prices.

As a result, energy consumers benefit from the cheaper future energy and participation in CO2 or other green energy certificate markets. WePower can leverage experience from energy, law, the blockchain, payment systems, security and emerging digital finance industries to develop its platform. In doing so, it will begin to change the way how everyone can earn money by producing, buying and investing in green energy.

WePower Fundraiser

The WePower pre-launch fundraiser is structured as a reward-based crowdfunding campaign, where contributors will receive WePower tokens in return for their Ethereum contributions. Part of the green energy that will be produced and traded on the WePower platform will be assigned to Energy tokens and stored in a smart contract.

Thus, the WPR token will be tokenized energy stored in a smart contract and which accrues donated energy (i.e. projected green energy production) in the form of energy tokens. WPR token holders can use this energy for their own purposes or trade it on WePower platform at any time. It ensures liquidity option for contributors, especially if contributors are from places where WePower is not connected to the grid yet.

Blockchain Startup CybCSec Solutions Offers Cybersecurity to Cryptocurrency Industry, Announces Crowdsale

· August 16, 2017 · 5:30 pm

Norwegian based tech start-up CybCSec Solutions has announced its new cryptocurrency — CybCSec Coin [XCS] as the company sets out to provide personal cybersecurity solutions for global businesses and individual users across the globe. The company has developed its business model in three individual stages.

[Note: This is a press release.]


CybCSec

The CybCSec team is comprised of industry-leading developers from the cybersecurity sector, many with multiple years’ experience. The company’s mission is to become the leading developer in the Crypto-verse, by designing and implementing innovative security for both personal and business users.

The CybCSec whitepaper offers a brief roadmap of the company’s three phase plan. The company has been specifically designed to offer a long term, stable ecosystem and a growth model that can easily be applied to already established businesses.

The company’s feature release structure is broken down into the following three phases:

Phase 1

Feature Release

The CybCSec coin cryptocurrency is currently undergoing the final stage of its testing before it is approved for full release. CybCSec coin wallets are already available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android devices. TOR network connections for secure messaging and Stealth addresses for anonymous receipt of payments have been already implemented and are in full working order.

Ecosystem & Growth

The platform already has agreements in place with a global sales team network operating in more than one hundred countries. The network includes over 10,000 different businesses, including restaurants, cafes, and shop, all which plans to soon accept XCS as a payment method. CybCSec Solutions expects to release a compiled database of retail outlets accepting XCS by the end of Q3 2017.

Phase 2

Feature Release

Phase two feature release will see the application of user-friendly Smart Contracts, enabling everyday users to implement XCS into their established businesses.

Ecosystem & Growth

CybCSec Solutions plans to focus on a selection of different real-world and online retail merchants, working with their global sales team, to offer further aid to the currency, across the globe.

Phase 3

Feature Releases

The third phase of feature releases will introduce Antivirus, Cyber Security, Intrusion Sensors, Secure File Transfers and additional security based innovations being developed by CybCSec Solutions.

CybCSec Coin ICO

Unlike other similar start-ups which have chosen to try and raise as much money as possible from their ICOs, CybCSec Solutions plans to sell just 2.5% of the total supply of available XCS tokens, to raise sufficient funds for Phase Two and Three development.

The company will decide at a later date if it will need to sell additional XCS, for further development. The CybCSec public sale will have a similar structure to that of a typical ICO-style crowdsale, with different stages and diminishing bonuses as the sale gets closer to its fruition. The ICO will be hosted directly by CybCSec Solutions via its dedicated website, with payment processing being handled by CoinPayments.

Blockchain Solar Energy Trading Platform SunContract Raises over 8200 ETH in Ongoing ICO

· July 29, 2017 · 12:15 pm

Unique Solar energy trading platform, SunContract has declared a total of over 8220 ETH (about $1.63 million) raised from its ongoing ICO, with still less than a week remaining. SunContract is a renewable energy marketplace developed by power specialists and IT professionals. The platform balances its service to incorporate market demands and blockchain technologies within the energy distribution industry.

[Note: This is a press release.]


Solar energy trading platform

The SunContract Energy Pool is a P2P marketplace that facilitates the exchange of clean energy directly between customers without the involvement of intermediaries, through an automatic digital bidding process made possible through Ethereum smart contracts.

The meteoric rise in the cost of traditional energy is exacerbated largely by sizable investments in infrastructure and costs relating to transmission, taxes, and losses through inefficient work practices. This trend and a growing availability of renewables have resulted in an increased development of the clean energy sector, which has led to a significant increase in the production efficiency.

Also, there is often considerable excess energy, produced from non-conventional power generation units, which is controlled by small and large private individuals or companies.

SunContract aims to reappropriate this excess energy by enabling the producers to sell it through the company’s open P2P market to all different types of consumers, without an intermediary or a trusted third party.

The use of blockchain technology in energy market not only helps automate most of the processes but also acts as an energy fraud and theft prevention mechanism. The transparency, immutability, and security of the Ethereum blockchain makes it easier to track energy distribution and usage, as well as prevent meter tampering, power theft, and other fraudulent activities.

SunContract focuses on the efficient use of clean energy, in a bid to reduce the company’s carbon footprint as much as possible. The company manages this by guaranteeing that all excess clean energy is stored correctly and eventually utilized properly. The company’s project started in 2016 but had already planned out its entire roadmap, explained in the whitepaper.

SunContract ICO

SunContract’s ICO has been successful so far and will continue for few more days. Investors can participate in the initiative by purchasing SNC tokens with Ethereum on the company’s ICO page. SunContract’s native SNC tokens act as the main unit of exchange on the platform.

Investors will receive 10,000 SNC tokens per every ETH, and with the recent increase in energy-backed tokens, the value of SNC is likely to rise when it hits the markets. The SunContract ICO has already surpassed the first milestone of 5000 ETH and now looks to hit 10,000 ETH. Interested individuals can participate in the ICO via the website.

NEM Rises to New Heights, as Partner EcoBit’s Green Project ICO Continues

· June 6, 2017 · 11:00 am

NEM is currently one of the fastest expanding distributed ledger technology platforms in the cryptocurrency space. In the recent days, NEM’s cryptocurrency XEM has seen a meteoric rise in value as it displaced Litecoin as the 4th Largest altcoin, in market capitalization last week.


The recent growth spike has been attributed to the NEM’s recent partnership with EcoBit, a green project supported by the Kelantan State Government in Malaysia.

The recent increase in demand and valuation for the out-of-the-box solution and it’s XEM tokens began earlier in the year with the announcement of the collaboration with EcoBit Project and its Blockchain card on social media site Twitter. EcoBit Blockchain card is a pioneering technology that sees the first ever implementation of Blockchain technology on a smart card, which harnesses NEM technology to enable the transactions of EcoBits tokens.

A leading Spanish cryptocurrency news site recently analyzed the direct correlation between EcoBit events and XEM price spikes, concluding the collaboration has a massively beneficial effect on the consensus in the cryptocurrency community.

Showing a super bullish upward trend line, corresponding with EcoBit events, the graph displayed a 154% increase in NEM prices from $0.0037 to $0.0094, between January and March 11, 2017, in unison with phase two launch of the EcoBit project.

Fast forward a month, and XEM saw another significant surge in price and market capitalization, reaching $0.0247 per token. Within this time frame, XEM saw its value rise in value by an entire decimal point, as EcoBit launched its website and ICO. A month later and XEM recorded yet another decimal point shift to reach $0.1276 (as on May 14, 2017).

Following the EcoBit ICO, and its green initiative, the company has gained more popularity among community members, especially Japan, where artists have created EcoBit fan-art.

What is EcoBit?

EcoBit is a green and sustainable lifestyle movement, developed in partnership with the Kelantan State Government in Malaysia. Having already raised over $1 million during the first 10 days of ICO, the EcoBit project focuses on many environmental initiatives that will be financed through the company’s ongoing ICO.

With NEM blockchain technology, the company creates a public supply chain for all produce created through its green projects on Carey Island. Through blockchain implementation, EcoBit focuses on transparency, immutability, and accountability, ensuring that people know exactly what they are buying, where it is coming from and under what ethical circumstances.

The use of self-sustaining NEM blockchain-based smart contracts enables projects to manage and monetize natural resources to reduce carbon emissions ethically. It also creates a transparent, immutable digital supply chain ledger that allows anyone to track and monitor the carbon credits/impact, project’s yields (agricultural produce) and the movement of products from the origin to supermarket shelves.

Through the ledger, consumers can be assured of the organic nature and ethical handling of food produce. The recently introduced EcoBit Blockchain Card can be used by members to “earn” EcoBit tokens via recycling program and “pay” merchants for their goods and services.

Open till June 8, 2017, EcoBit invites participants to continue to contribute towards and eco-friendly blockchain-based project, fighting global warming and climate change in the process contributing towards its sustainable environmental movement.

BitConnect Coin (BCC) Records 18x Value Increase, within 6 Months of ICO

· May 23, 2017 · 11:30 am

Cryptocurrency newbie BitConnect Coin recently announced an 18x increase in value within six months, following its ICO. Since the altcoin’s crowdsale in November 2016, BCC has risen from $0.5 to $9 per unit. BCC has followed a trajectory similar to that of Bitcoin over Q1 of 2017 which is expected to continue throughout the year.


Similar to Bitcoin and other leading cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum Classic, BCC has a limited supply of 28 million units, making it a deflationary currency. Should the demand continue to increases above current levels, the cryptocurrency’s price could soon test new heights as the year progresses.

The market currently accounts for around 6 million BitConnect Coins and has a strong investor community for a coin of its age. The market for BCC appears healthy in several Asian countries. The BitConnect development team holds an optimistic outlook towards the cryptocurrency, and they expect its popularity to rise in other equally large markets shortly.

BCC presently commands a market capitalization of $82 million, a valuation similar to that of other innovative alternative currencies such as LISK, Ardor, and Iconomi. The drastic increase in BCC’s price and market cap has attracted the attention of more traders in the last few months. The team is also receiving inquiries about the best BCC trading practices from new investors, which indicates the increasing interest among not just seasoned investors but newbies as well.

Based on BCC’s performance during the first two quarters, the months of May and June presents themselves as an optimal time period for Bitcoin investments, mainly because of: an explosive growth of the cryptocurrency market and the short-term downward trend in BCC.

Despite a fall in BCC’s value from April 1 till early May, the cryptocurrency has seen meteoric gains since its inception. A recent price bubble in the cryptocurrency market saw most altcoins drop substantially, including BCC. However, in no time, the price of BCC has already started to bounce back, preparing itself to retest the previous high of $15.

FundYourselfNow Crowdfunding Platform Announces Q1 2018 Launch, ICO Starts June 2, 2017

· May 12, 2017 · 4:00 pm

A new smart contract based crowdfunding platform, FundYourselfNow.com is set to launch in Q1 2018, making its services available to cryptocurrency investors and entrepreneurs. The platform is built with a goal to help the project leaders raise funds in Bitcoin and Ethereum, to back their ideas through various partnerships.

[Note: This is a press release.]


The platform’s mission aligns with the recent trends in the cryptocurrency market which saw a huge rise in ICO investment during 2016. During the period, over $200 million raised across the board. Despite the huge influx of ICO investments, smaller and less technically savvy project leaders are less able to orchestrate such investment vehicles.

FundYourselfNow aims to simplify the crowdfunding process, to give all ‘Project creators’ a chance to receive the necessary funding to establish themselves in the market. FundYourselfNow project creators will be able to create virtual tokens, which will offer unique customized rewards to the investors, which contribute towards the project. The tokens will eventually be eligible to be traded on cryptocurrency market platforms.

FundYourselfNow Crowdfunding Platform Announces Q1 2018 Launch, ICO Starts June 2, 2017

FundYourselfNow is built over Ethereum platform, leveraged by its smart contract capabilities. It has already seen significant developments in terms of inclusion of Bitcoin support via Rootstock and more as the team prepares for the crowdsale.

The Ethereum smart contracts are designed to promote a level of accountability within the crowdfunding ecosystem. The platform has a milestone-based payment option, which allows project investors the ability to withdraw fund, should a project fails to deliver on its targets. This alleviates a large portion of the risk currently faced by investors in most standard cryptocurrency ICO’s.

Hong Kong-listed company, Success dragon International’s CEO Carlos Salas recently lead the seed funding round for FundYourselfNow. Carlos, also an angel investor and accomplished businessman, helped the platform reach their initial funding goal faster than anticipated.

The funds raised through crowdsale will be utilized by FundYourselfNow to continue the platform’s development and offer project creators cryptocurrency-backed funding, through their crowdfunding campaigns.

Pinnacle Digital has acquired Caxton Worldwide Success Limited, in order to assist FundYourselfNow to achieve its own separate legal status. Led by Pinnacle Digital’s team, FundYourselfNow will continue its fundraising and development under the heading of Caxton Worldwide Success Limited. The platform has scheduled its upcoming ICO on June 2nd, 2017, giving investors a chance to support the crowdfunding project from day one.

SibCoin Expands Its Reach to China’s Cryptocurrency Market after Tasting National Success

· April 7, 2017 · 8:15 am

SibСoin, a Dash fork cryptocurrency originating from Siberia has gained substantial traction within its homeland and plans to expand its reach to the neighboring country, China. To Russian nationals, the cryptocurrency is known as ‘Siberian Сhervonets’ (SIB). The platform’s official website has added support for the Chinese language to help stimulate interest among Chinese investors and crypto-enthusiasts.


Created in May 2015, SibCoin was intended to cater to the needs of the Russian-speaking crypto-community and was formed under the title of the ‘People’s Patriotic Project’.

SibCoin gathered massive national adoption amongst traders and enthusiasts, as it offered a seemingly trustworthy alternative to Bitcoin.

Siberian Chervonets (SIB) is a decentralized payment system, free of useless intermediaries. The SibCoin blockchain technology uses a public mathematic algorithm on a trustless network, which stores the information for each transaction. The algorithm makes it possible for information to be safely shared among participants.

The SibCoin cryptocurrency is currently available for live trade on both ‘YoBit’ and ‘Livecoin’ platforms, and most recently it has been added to one of the most reputable trading platforms, Bittrex.

The SibCoin project leader, Ivan Rublev has said that the development team is focusing on two specific areas as they evolve the cryptocurrency’s ecosystem. MasterNode-based services and traditional services (which includes exchanges and payment collection services) will be the two main areas of focus for the SibCoin team.  

The SibCoin community is going to see a lot of feature additions to the platform during the year 2017. SibCoin’s community meetings have grown in scope and size with community interest now extending beyond Russia and Siberia. With the momentum gathered by the development team in Siberia, SibCoin is now looking forward to becoming the pioneering voice for blockchain adoption in all other neighboring countries.
