The Blockchain ‘Uber’ of Car Towing, CarTaxi Launches Ethereum Based Platform

· August 30, 2017 · 12:56 pm

Russian blockchain developers CarTaxi have just launched the first global service for towing vehicles. The platform brings together a list of all car towing companies and is already starting to change the outlook of the market. In the two months following the platform’s initial launch, the service already operates in over 15 different cities. The company’s global launch will be later in the year and the company has already organized its Pre-ICO campaign, set to begin on August 30, 2017.

[Note: This article provided by BitcoinPRBuzz]

The global vehicles towing markets value is estimated at roughly 26 Billion USD and is expected to rise with an increasing number of new units in production. The industry is set to prioritize obstruction-free traffic, enforcement of law and order, and the convenience of vehicle owners.

 CarTaxi has created a network of registered and licensed car towing service providers, through the implementation of blockchain and cross-platform programs. The company believes that they made a significant breakthrough in the level of service they can provide for both corporate and private clients. CarTaxi has stated that they have introduced more accountability into the industry and subsequently provide easier access to the most suitable towing company for all users. Registered users of the platform will be able to bypass long phone calls and instead call a towing service with the CarTaxi smartphone app.

CarTaxi can see the potential benefits of blockchain technology for their business and have outlined a plan to implement it based on Ethereum and expedites payment transactions, between car towing service providers and stakeholders. This will also provide transparency in the oversight of company activity.

Ethereum smart contracts provide suitable interfaces for business processes, such as new client registration, processing new clients orders and settling payments with service providers and investors. Smart contracts record all new orders, locate client’s coordinates, vehicle parameters and estimated time of arrival of a towing vehicle.

In the event that a car towing company does not reach its destination, the service price will be reduced or will be subjected to penalties. The service will confirm the order details and will then organize an inspection for vehicle damage. If details are not matched for some reason the smart contract does not allow to proceed to the next step. Following completion, the program analyzes the final parameters and automatically pays the towing company.

The company has put special focus on order fulfillment as it plans to provide services for vehicle transportation over large distances and in difficult logistical scenarios.

ICO Launch

The upcoming Pre-ICO on August 30, 2017, will go on until September 19, 2017, which will be followed by the official ICO campaign set to begin on September 29, 2017, until October 29, 2017. CarTaxi has set a total cap of 500 million CTX, of which 12.5 million will be available in pre-sale and rest at the time of ICO. During pre-sale investors can purchase CarTaxi tokens with a 45% bonus.

The proceeds from the token offering will be invested in further development of car taxi’s service. CarTaxi has scheduled blockchain activation during Q4 2017, followed by its expansion into USA and China in 2018 and Europe in 2019. With the opening of representative offices in India and South America, the platform will be available worldwide by 2021.

Polybius Project ICO raises $19 Million, Becomes Eligible for EU Banking License

· June 18, 2017 · 2:00 pm

The Polybius project ICO went live on May 31, 2017, has raised $6 million in its first three days and by the second week, it had raised a total of $17 million (now over $19 million). At $6 million the Polybius Bank project became eligible to register as a bank and start operations under EU law.

[Note: This is a press release.]


Polybius project ICO

In accordance with regulations, The Polybius Foundation was required to raise a minimum of $6 million to legally obtain a full banking license and launch within an EU country. The Polybius project’s ICO is now in its third week but has already raised close to $20 million.

Established by the Estonian company Polybius Foundation, The Polybius project was born out of a change in EU legislation which enables the project to become economically viable.

The project is heavily focused on the development of financial technologies within the banking sector of Switzerland and the EU.

Following changes to EU legislation, it is now legal for banks to use blockchain technology as a basis for recording bank transactions and documentation, a leading feature of the Polybius cryptobank project. In addition to the implementation of blockchain technology, Polybius Bank will also use specialized AI for crediting, and the project’s very own digital biometric identification technology called Digital Pass.

Digital Pass offers a safer, streamlined digital alternative to the traditional method of physical documentation. Until now it has not been legally possible for EU-based banks to implement such projects, but now Polybius Bank project will have the freedom to operate as a legitimate universal blockchain-backed bank.

The Polybius Bank project has stated that it is very close to choosing an official location for the business to be registered. Currently shortlisted locations include Lithuania, Luxembourg, Finland, and Switzerland. The project will announce their final decision when the ICO campaign concluded. Polybius would like to remind potential investors that during the third week of ICO, they stand to receive a bonus of 10%, starting June 15, 2017.

Blockchain-Based Decentralized P2P IOU Platform, Sikoba Launches Pre-Sale Ahead of Token ICO

· May 7, 2017 · 8:00 pm

London-based decentralized money platform Sikoba has announced its upcoming ICO with a token presale. The blockchain-supported platform is based on P2P IOU’s, and the crowdsale will give participants the opportunity to receive a 50% bonus on SKO tokens — a cryptocurrency designed to fuel transactions within the Sikoba platform. The ICO will take place between April 25 and May 15, 2017.


A Blockchain-based IOU System

Sikoba’s decentralized money platform allows users to offer each other mutual lines of credit, within a blockchain-based IOU system. The P2P credit system is made possible through various smart contracts and gives users the freedom to pay each other with fiat and cryptocurrencies. Sikoba’s smart contracts have specified conditions, fee structures and repayment rules to keep the credit relationships in order.

The platform employs a ’credit conversion’ system that also allows users who do not trust each other to exchange credit safely. On Sikoba, fiat currencies or cryptocurrencies can act as a medium of exchange when there are no credit links between participants, or to repay outstanding balances when needed.

Sikoba’s CEO Aleksander Kampa recently expressed the company’s intention for the decentralized platform to evolve into an entirely independent and self-organizing entity eventually. The Sikoba blockchain could achieve this using its ‘federated Blockchain’ design. This unique blockchain is self-governing, which allows the addition and removal of participants, based on the member voting consensus.

Sikoba’s CEO Aleksander Kampa

This is a permissioned mining model where only authorized nodes add blocks to the blockchain.

Kampa also stated that Sikoba would most likely use Ethereum as a notary, but still perform its primary operations on its own or another blockchain. The blockchain will be chosen based on the relevant criteria of scalability, flexibility, and speed.

Sikoba operates with a small development team, aided by several important supporting members. Still in the pre-alpha stage, Sikoba’s IOU platform is not expected to be fully operational until towards the end of 2017. SKO token presale funds will be appropriated for the expansion of the Sikoba team, to finalize a detailed whitepaper and develop an MVP by the year end.

The Sikoba platform aims to offer a fully functioning virtual credit or IOU system that offers users the ability to attain accredited value, borrowed from another participant without releasing any funds. SKO tokens serve as a type of digital credit and have the potential to become a major aspect of the future credit system.

Sikoba ICO Token Pre-Sale

Sikoba ICO Token Pre-Sale

The Sikoba presale tokens are scheduled for release by the end of June 2017. Participants will receive usable SKO tokens after the platform’s launch, expected in Q3, 2018. The pre-allocation phase has begun on 17 March 2017, and the public presale will start on 25 April.

Following the presale, Sikoba presale tokens will be issued on the Ethereum blockchain. They will later become exchangeable into SKO tokens, which will be used to pay for transaction fees on the Sikoba network.

What do you think of Sikoba’s blockchain-based IOU system? Let us know in the comments below.

· April 18, 2017 · 10:00 pm

Estonian cryptocurrency-backed financial services platform Exscudo recently published a video interview featuring its top managers Alex Sitnikov (CTO), Julian Kossinov (CFO), and Andrew Zimine (CEO).

All funds remain in the users’ personal bank accounts or wallets until the time orders are finalized.

Exscudo aims to apply some of the more beneficial regulatory practices of mainstream stock exchanges into its platform to facilitate fruitful cooperation between them.  The adoption of relevant regulatory requirements and compliances by Exscudo also helps the platform avoid issues related to money laundering etc.

In the interview, Kossinov states that Exscudo has developed a number of products to solve the problems of accessibility, transparency, and sustainability of the financial market. The platform’s products and services are designed to facilitate an honest exchange procedure between cryptocurrencies and fiat.

Exscudo’s uniquely designed distributed network (EON) serves to power the entire ecosystem. The EON coins act as fuel for the blockchain and ICO assets. Exscudo will release a total of 240 million EON coins, of which 150.72 million will be available for sale during the ICO, scheduled to start on April 25, 2017. The price for 1 EON will be set at 0.0002 BTC.

Exscudo’s compliance with legal and regulatory requirements makes it attractive for traditional investors as it provides them with an opportunity to invest legally in a cryptocurrency-powered project. The platform believes to have something to offer to almost everyone. For businesses, Exscudo’s merchant platform provides the capability of receiving a wide range of cryptocurrencies as payment from customers.

Other features offered by Exscudo to its users includes its own channels for miners and traders, wallet application, secure messenger and more. The Exscudo app also provides a broad range of functions for storage and exchange of currencies, payments, secure communications and even monetization of public channels.

BetCoin Launches TOR Casino TorBet777!

Source: bitcoin

TorBet777

BetCoin is a Bitcoin Casino that has already established a solid foothold within the Clearnet but has decided to expand into the “Darknet” with their newest offering, TorBet777.

Disclaimer: This article was provided by Bitcoin PR Buzz. Bitcoinist is not affiliated with BetCoin and is not responsible for its products and/or services.

TorBet777 “is a 50/50 chance game” where “players choose the image they think will come next, and the payout is based on the result.” TorBet777 brings all of this with speed typically not associated with TOR, which will come as pleasant surprise to players.

The adult-themed game is only accessible via the TOR browser, giving users the ability to gamble with an unprecedented level of anonymity. While there have been TOR casinos in the past, they have suffered from minimum deposits and/or unstable service; there’s no guarantee the service in question will return Bitcoin if they were to go down due to a malicious attack.

“There is also the issue of the stability of these markets. If, for example, you are high on luck have some big wins, there is a real risk that a market can be shut down or temporarily taken offline due to a malicious attack. It is unknown whether or not the owners would, at that point, return your Bitcoin.”

With TorBet777, there’s no minimum deposit that users must worry about. With a company as big as BetCoin putting their support, users should feel safer in putting their funds with TorBet777 compared to other TOR casinos.

About BetCoin™

BetCoin™ Bitcoin Entertainment Network has been at the forefront of the Bitcoin Gambling sector for almost 3 years, and continues to show its commitment to not only innovating, but capitalizing on the core aspects of Bitcoin – including the anonymity it can provide to the privacy-concerned user. The endorsement of TorBet777 continues this trend of embracing the powers of Bitcoin – innovation, privacy, trust, and anonymity wrapped in an enticing package.

Bet King: 2015 In Review

Bet King was a big year for 2015, with many significant events occurring last year. Pocket Rockets Casino rebranded to what we now know as Bet King, increased their game offerings, and had the biggest bet placed in the Bitcoin gambling industry. One of the largest achievements, however, is that Bet King paid out over $15 million to users.

Disclaimer: This article was provided by Bitcoin PR BuzzBitcoinist is not affiliated with BSAVE and is not responsible for its products and/or services.

Being operational since 2013, Bet King has been leading the Bitcoin industry due to their provably fair games, loyal customer support, and generous payouts. Bet King can do this thanks to a crowdfunded bankroll, which has 3000 Bitcoin in it currently, reaching peaks of around 5000 Bitcoin.

This large bankroll allows users to have the chances of winning extraordinarily high payouts, up to $116,335 in a single bet. The largest win in 2015 went to the user of “Nameless”, raking in 200 Bitcoin ($87,800 USD at the time) after placing a bet of 433.9 Bitcoin with a 67.8% chance to win; the bet occurred on July 19th of 2015.

Another exceptional win went to a player named “Valermos”, winning around 90 Bitcoin after placing a .256 BTC bet on dice, with a multiplier of 350x. With only a chance of 0.2828%, Bet King named this the “Luckiest Big Win” of 2015.

2016 proves to be an exciting year for Bet King as well, with expectations of new records to be made this year. Other plans include deploying a new betting exchange, returning the online poker feature, as well as expanding the casino game portfolio.

NXT Announces Version 1.7.4!

Source: bitcoin

NXT

NXT is one of Bitcoins biggest altcoin competitors, quickly growing to the mature and developed cryptocurrency it is today thanks to a dedicated community. NXT is now proud to announce their latest software version, 1.7.4, which will come online January 23rd.

Disclaimer: This article was provided by Bitcoin PR Buzz. Bitcoinist is not affiliated with NXT and is not responsible for its products and/or services.

1.7.4 will bring three main features, account control, Coinshuffle, and the NXT Data Cloud. Account Control will allow easy creation of multi-signature accounts for unparalleled security, Coinshuffle will be used to obfuscate transaction details to deter people attempting to trail transactions, and the data cloud will be used for a secure file storage system that is agnostic to the type of media stored within it.

  • Create multi-signature accounts for ultimate security, using Account Control. Account Control allows transactions from an account to only be executed after they have been approved by a voting process, using the Nxt Voting System for enhanced multi-signature transactions.
  • Use the CoinShufflesystem to anonymise Nxt funds. Nxt is the first cryptocurrency platform to natively incorporate a decentralised mixing/CoinShuffle service on its own blockchain, allowing users the option to completely anonymise funds held in NXT.
  • Store, retrieve and publish files, documents, or arbitrary data on the blockchain using the data cloud. NXT Data Cloud will allow decentralized, censorship-free and tamper-proof publication and retrieval of small files, documents, or arbitrary data to the blockchain, with low costs/fees and options including automatic removal and encryption.

There were other features in 1.7.4, such as a 60s block time average, with “long block times now extremely unlikely”. Dynamic fees that are proportional to the relative transaction size is a thing as well, which is most likely linked to the 60s block time average as well. The links to download the updated clients can be found here.
