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.

· April 10, 2017 · 8:17 am

Cryptocurrency-based fantasy football game platform, FootballCoin has announced the soft launch of its new platform. The game’s beta launch will offer interested players a glimpse of the platform’s features and gameplay.


Similar to ‘Football Manager’, the largest cryptocurrency based football team building title – FootballCoin gives players the chance to create, manage and strengthen their football squad for the purpose of league titles or championship cups. Although similar in nature, FootballCoin offers something unique that ‘Football Manager’ does not have, its own real (crypto)currency.

FootballCoin offers the use of its own Counterparty-based cryptocurrency (XFCCOIN), enabling the use of blockchain technology. FootballCoin cryptocurrency can be utilized within the game to purchase player cards and stadium cards. XFCCOIN can also be traded for other cryptocurrencies through online trading platforms.

These partnerships maximize the realism of the platform’s gameplay. The FootballCoin project will be the first blockchain-supported football fantasy game, and it is entirely funded by the company and its representatives. The soft launch release will initially support English, Spanish and Italian leagues with coverage extending to include France, Germany and the UEFA Champions League at the time of global launch date in August. The FootballCoin platform is set to add additional options to the platform based on community input as the project reaches its fruition.

With its blockchain powered ecosystem, FootballCoin looks to establish itself as the main

platform to offer the benefit of an XFCCOIN cryptocurrency market to players within the fantasy football realm. The availability of XFCCOIN tokens is limited to 1 billion, this will ensure profitability for the players and also stimulate user adoption. The finite number of available tokens will push the value of FootballCoin’s in-game cards and stadiums while increasing the trading value of the currency against alternatives like Bitcoin.

FootballCoin’s unique XFCCOIN tokens can soon be purchased by participants with BTC at a discount during the games pre-sale. After the pre-sale, players can use the cryptocurrency to purchase blockchain-based football player cards and stadium cards. The tokens will also be made available for acquisition from official game stores and cryptocurrency exchanges.

FootballCoin also intends to release its own debit card for the purpose of cryptocurrency payment and store of value. The FootballCoin debit cards will be supported at places accepting VISA and MasterCard debit and credit cards.  

There are already football-genre fantasy gaming platforms around, but none of them have their own unique currency or even cryptocurrency for that matter. FootballCoin helps players cross the bridge between fantasy football gaming and the world of alternative currencies to attract an untapped niche of users.

Anyone Interested in becoming a part of the new FootballCoin community can do so by taking part in the platforms public beta and XFCCOIN crowdsale. Interested parties can visit FootballCoin website for upcoming pre-sale dates.

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.
