The iCoin summit which will host the world’s first ever ICO battle with a live investment is heading to Cyprus with a line-up of more than 30 well-known speakers, 16 blockchain start-ups, and a $250,000 grand prize.

This unique event is sponsored by one of the biggest companies in the ICO world, 7Marketz and will take place at Atlantica Oasis hotel on the 9th and 10th of May 2018.

TON Pool ICO Platform: Universal New Generation Crypto Currency Platform

· March 24, 2018 · 1:00 pm

As the practice of the last few years has shown, the powerful potential that the cryptocurrencies are endowed with, allows us to ensure decentralization and security of money operations in the modern world. But nowadays there is still no single currency that could be considered universal in the mass market and unite a multi-million audience in the global community.

2018 can be significant in this respect. The world will see a project called the Telegram Open Network (TON). Its key idea is to develop and implement a new cryptocurrency and the multi-block system Proof-of-Stake – TON will be the basis for it. After 2021, the name of the Telegram Open Network will be changed to The Open Network.

What is Pool ICO Platform?

Poolico-platform.com is a platform for uniting investors into pools, for participation in ICO projects, on the most favorable terms at the early stages of the initial offer.

The essence of our project is that we unite private investors in the pool, to participate in a closed primary offer of TON tokens. Each investor has the opportunity to invest his share through our platform. By registering and using your personal office, everyone can refill bitcoins or ether and buy the share in the pool. The funds are daily sent to the escrow account in US dollars, since participation in the primary offer of TON tokens is impossible by the cryptocurrency. Your share is fixed in US dollars according to the average rate of bitcoin or ether at the time of receipt of funds.

At the end of the fund-raising, all raised funds will be used to purchase the TON tokens at the price set at the time of purchase. After that, all tokens will be distributed among participants of our platform in proportion to their contributions in US dollars.

All funds are transferred to the escrow account on a daily basis, and in case of impossibility to participate in the TON initial offer, all funds will be returned to their investors. But we plan to participate in the next round of sales, which, according to our data, still going to be.

What Are the Advantages of TON?

Thanks to integration into this system, millions of people will have free access to the cryptocurrency. Among the main advantages of TON is:

  • the work through mobile devices: you don’t have to carry large amounts of money with you, as many goods and services can be paid using cryptocurrency;
  • a high level of security: TON will ensure the safe storage of financial resources of each person in the detachment since the cipher will be known only to the owner of the wallet;
  • the simplicity of purchasing TON coins.

The Telegram messenger can become an excellent launching pad for the initial implementation of the project, as it is now connected by a large number of public chats, groups, and channels with a multi-million base of subscribers. And it is the ready audience for the acquisition of digital content and physical goods. After 2021, it is planned to launch its own element called Telegram.

We aren’t employees of Telegram and don’t conduct a primary sale (ICO) on behalf of Telegram and its founders. Our platform is a pad designed to pool investors into pools for the purpose of participating in ICO projects that can bring good profit to each investor on the most favorable terms at the earliest stages of the initial offer.

Timeframe of Fundraise

Fundraising will start on March 1, 2018. An approximate end date is April 1, 2018 (can be extended).

Softkap (it is the minimum amount of funds that must be collected to run the project) is $20 000 000.

The project’s founders are fully responsible for the use of the received funds. As part of the implementation and development of the project, these responsibilities will be transferred to a non-profit organization – the TON Foundation.

Each investment made in the cryptocurrency is transferred daily to the escrow account. And if until the end of the initial offer the soft cap will not be assembled, we organize a refund of funds to all investors.

· March 23, 2018 · 2:00 pm

A blockchain-powered daily fantasy sports platform, MyDFS promises to improve the gaming experience for the uncountable amount of fantasy sports enthusiasts around the world by delivering better speed, ease-of-use, transparency, governance, and accountability. This mobile-based fantasy sports ecosystem has been created by the founders of uTrener and KHL Fantasy, two of European earliest and most popular daily fantasy sports platforms. 

London, UK March 21, 2018

MyDFS, a blockchain-powered daily fantasy sports platform, is all set to redefine the industry by connecting the sports fans around the world to an ecosystem that is transparent, easy-to-use, and token buyers friendly. Built on smart contracts, MyDFS runs on mobile devices to address a number of issues that have plagued the fantasy sports industry. The ultimate goal of this project is to simplify the user experience to make the games enjoyable for all types of players.

The global fantasy sports industry has experienced phenomenal growth over the last few decades. Only in the US and Canada, this market was worth $7 billion in 2017. However, an extremely high growth rate has led the industry to an immature state where outdated business practices are commonplace. As a result, this highly promising industry has been struggling with several shortcomings including uncertain legal status, complicated gaming experience, complex verification procedures, deposit and withdrawal-related issues, and lack of transparency.

MyDFS was designed as a transparent and worry-free fantasy sports platform that will be capable of overcoming all the existing challenges, leveraging modern technology and contemporary business approaches. The platform addresses the industry’s legal issues by introducing cryptocurrency tokens to be used throughout the platform. Limitations such as insider gaming, bots, and other cases of unfair play have been eliminated with the application of blockchain and smart contract technology. Some other benefits for the fans include

  • Streamlined user experience
  • Fast user verification
  • Fast and worry-free transactions
  • Transparent gaming and fair play
  • Get profits from winnings in tokens.

The MyDFS team comprises of industry professionals with a wealth of experience in the fields of fantasy sports and large-audience applications. In 2016, this team hit the headlines by developing and launching uTrener. This was one of the earliest platforms on the European market to offer a refined, user-friendly and seamless DFS gaming experience on iOS, Android, and the web. They have also launched KHL Fantasy (later KHL Haier Fantasy), a white label app for top European ice hockey league KHL. KHL Fantasy won MarSpo 2017 as the best sports app and was featured by App Store several times. At the same time, MyDFS team received UK Gambling Commission License to legitimately operate fantasy sports in Europe.

“MyDFS presents a fantasy sports solution with clean, mid-core gameplay that supports multiple popular sports and allows people to invest and capitalize not just on the game itself, but also by investing in other pro players (earning a share of their winnings), or holding or selling game tokens,” says Viktor Mangazeev, the CEO of MyDFS. “Our platform embraces transparency and fair play. Our cryptocurrency tokens eliminate the need for fiat currency. The accuracy of our fantasy results is backed up by smart contract technology. The real-world game data that determines how players on our platform do, along with players, teams and statistics, are completely publicly accessible.”

MyDFS currently supports soccer, hockey, basketball, cricket, and football, and is capable of integrating more popular sports in the future. It works on all contemporary smartphones, tablets, and the web. MyDFS token, an Ethereum-based token, will be used for all value transactions within the MyDFS ecosystem. These tokens can be used to play, win, and exchange it for other cryptocurrency or fiat money. The users can also hold and trade their tokens, maximizing their earning potential as the demand increases for the MyDFS tokens. Moreover, MyDFS is pioneering player brokerage to let casual users share their prize pool with a pro-players’.

MyDFS app is expected to be released before the FIFA World Cup 2018 to be held this summer in Russia. The company has recently started its pre-ICO campaign, offering a total of 50 million tokens with a hard cap set at $40 million. Attractive bonuses are available for the early token buyers.

Btcurrencies.com Highly Recommends XinFin ICO This Month – Just 7 Days Left!

· March 8, 2018 · 12:00 pm

BTCurrencies.com is extremely hopeful about XinFin ICO which is dedicated to improving international trade and finance sector by eliminating the efficiencies through unique hybrid blockchain technology.

Singapore, March 8th, 2018: Great News for cryptocurrency investors involved in international trade. As per the reports from leading cryptocurrency news portal BTCurrencies.com, a new ICO has been launched with a focus on the development of global trade and finance. Titled as XinFin, the latest ICO represents an exclusive Hybrid Blockchain technology platform which is dedicated to eliminating inefficiencies in international trade and financing.

The XinFin blockchain is uniquely powered by XDC01 Protocol that represents a fork of Ethereum and Quorum. This state of the art hybrid architecture stands out with its exclusive blend of both public and private blockchains – which eventually makes it scalable, secure as well as lightning fast.

The XinFin ICO will end on March 15, 2018, and the token price point is –

1ETH= 133000 XDCE

A report from BTCurrencies.com stated:

XinFin is one of the most promising developments in the latest cryptocurrency space and it’s a great thing that the platform is looking forward to improve the condition of global trade and financial ecosystem. The hybrid blockchain portal represents a highly secure, scalable, permissioned and commercial-grade blockchain architecture which is dedicated to remove the inefficiencies plaguing the current international trade & financing field. XinFin will also assist institutions with real time settlement and facilitate cross border smart contracts. Those who are somehow involved with global trade will greatly benefit from the ongoing XDCE ICO.

As per reports from International Chamber of Commerce, global trade flow is predicted to grow at 4.3% annual rate and will reach $1`9 trillion by 2020. Such a situation invokes huge demand for infrastructure support. In fact, global infrastructure investment requirements are scheduled to reach around $3.7 trillion a year now. The problem is a lot of factors are limiting infrastructure development related to international trade and finance. These include traditional nature of infrastructure investments, limitations of traditional providers, lack of perfect global financial marketplace, cross-border latencies and so on.

Peter Yeo, the co-founder of XinFin, stated:

Blockchain is an efficiency improvement tool when it comes to addressing the lack of infrastructure development plaguing the global trade sector today. The unique hybrid blockchain technology of XinFin facilitates further improvement in efficiency with its powerful next-generation financing mechanism – that will duly complement the existent financial ecosystem seamlessly. We are dedicated to make the best of fast-evolving permissioned blockchain, XDC01 protocol, with spontaneous participation from financiers, governments, buyers, regulators, suppliers and communities to close the international trade and finance deficit.

The XDCE token is a swappable ERC20 token that carries a broad range of perks for traders, institution-level partners, and private investors. However, the token will be most beneficial for traders as it will enable them to compete strongly against other regular ERC20 across various exchange boards. Such a system only makes XinFin’s reach even more versatile in the current Crypto space.

Our XDCE token will be made available and tradable on most of the exchanges. It will eventually help traders with high volume and fast trades on multiple exchanges.

Interested investors can contribute to the XDCE ICO with ETH, BTC, BCH, and XRP. For more information about the platform and ICO please visit https://xinfin.io

Lockchain Expanding Rapidly and Offering Free Tokens

· March 2, 2018 · 11:30 am

Lockchain Ltd, the company behind the LOC token and the first online booking engine for hotels and properties powered by blockchain technology, is rapidly expanding the features of their current marketplace.

The marketplace, still in alpha version, enables travelers and blockchain enthusiasts to book properties and hotels all around the world. The properties are offered similarly to home-sharing and property sharing websites. Lockchain’s unique selling point: An average of 19% cheaper than their competitors. For anyone who enjoys traveling, that is good news. In fact, when comparing two random listings in an earlier Medium post they found them to be 14% and 28% cheaper compared to Airbnb.

Not only does Lockchain offer properties, they’re also focusing on the hotel industry. A few weeks ago they announced to have secured 100,000 additional hotels for their booking platform portfolio. The long awaited integration of these hotels in the marketplace is closing down, with the CEO Nikola Alexandrov mentioning on their telegram channel that it’ll be implemented in the next major update to the platform, which is expected to be in early March.

That’s good news for LOC token investors who’ve been anticipating the integration since the official announcement. This brings the total number of properties on Lockchain currently available to over 100,000 hotels and 1,500 properties.

Other significant changes to the marketplace will be the deployment of fully integrated private wallet management for LOC token holders. This enables holders to enjoy the full check-out experience, booking vacation rentals and hotels globally with LOC tokens. Further significant milestones coming up include the DAPP application integration that allows other forms of payment as well as smart contracts for vacation rentals.

Next in line is the launch of the iOS and Android mobile app with global booking support expected in April. After these essentials are launched, Lockchain will come in the next project phase with the launch of the Beta marketplace  With this, Lockchain officially places itself in the position of ‘consumer ready’  and aims to penetrate the $500 Billion market that is the online travel industry. Gaining even a small portion of this market will mean significant traffic for the Lockchain engine and the LOC token.

For those seeking to invest in the LOC token, it can be an interesting moment to step in now, with many significant updates coming within a 2-month timespan. Furthermore, there’s a way to earn LOC tokens for free, by voting for Lockchain’s token on the Huobi market. Information about this can be found in this Medium post and on their Telegram channel. There have also been talks about having an airdrop in the near future, further incentivizing the blockchain markets and its investors to have a look at what Lockchain is doing.

With Lockchain being the first blockchain based consumer-focused project, they’re likely to become front-runners of blockchain’s evolvement from a niche project to becoming integrated with today’s economy. This makes Lockchain a unique and interesting project to follow up on. Have a look at their website, and put this on your list of 2018’s projects to follow!

WELL Telemedicine Project Cures from Crypto Neurosis to Achieve Hard Cap

· February 13, 2018 · 10:30 am

The usual mornings for cryptocurrency traders have been starting out on-edge lately. Rate exchanges for crypto have been going up and down sporadically and no one can predict it’s path. The wheel of neurosis untwists with every piece of news about whales going to a certain cryptocurrency or another; just one glance at Markets List can make somebody insane. Until getting into crypto becomes as routine as going to the mall, each of us has to hold in their nerves by ourselves or try to get some help.

“It’s insane!” – the most common definition of what is happening in the cryptocurrency market. The psychological state of traders is on the brink of falling. Psychologists and psychotherapists could provide the necessary support for distracted “bitlievers”. But what about the confidentiality of the visit? Would you feel secure in a one-on-one visit with your doctor? When it comes to large transactions in the state of the uncertain legal field, I consider you would not.

In a classical practice, client-therapist confidentiality has a lot of breaches. Imagine that the psychotherapist who treats you has a different understanding of medical secrecy. Once you are in a bad mood, blowing off some steam by verbalizing your negative thoughts, it can turn into a precedent for an informational leak. Consultancies performing to regulate rather than to actually do the therapy were common practice in history (you will find cases of patient privacy violation here: https://www.propublica.org/series/patient-privacy). On the other hand, psychotherapists or other counselors could easily be scapegoated for their client’s actions.

The most popular question on chats of ICO projects that repeats again and again is: Is it moon or not? Or, why will it [token] go high? To be fair, nobody worries, when the only aim of token contribution is the welfare of speculators. But what if the token you hold involves widespread usage in everyday life?

After trying telemedicine practice once, most of the doctors want to proceed. Psychotherapists realized that for effective communication with patients, they do not need to install a $10 000 couch in the office. Endocrinologists could provide better care when reading patients’ medical records more attentively. Those are some of the advantages of telehealth.  But there are the usual disadvantages as well:

  • Payment reimbursement for provided services
  • Difficulties with collecting verified medical records
  • Fears that telemedicine platform will be hacked with all of the data
  • Hackers or a service provider will record the process of consultation for own purposes.

All of these illnesses can be healed with a blockchain injection. Let’s consider a blockchain relevance in the healthcare industry with the example of WELL – a decentralized healthcare marketplace, being developed on the basis of the most popular telemedicine platform in Southern California.

When we speak about payment for healthcare, there are 2 problems: difficulties with cross-border transactions and high price. Using WELL tokens, a user can send and receive payment in minutes. No more middle man who gets nearly 30% of the cost due to Ethereum-based transactions. Another challenging issue is also related to the process of payment. Once a patient has treatment, both sides will be referred according to the smart contract principle.

Blockchain technology makes EHR storage even more secure than if it’s placed on a hard-drive somewhere in the Swiss mountains. For more use cases of token usage, click here.

Nobody knows how long the cryptocurrencies hysterics will endure. Furthermore, crypto investors are still very dependent on bumping perspective. These facts increase rates of depression and other diseases like OCD (obsessive cryptocurrency disorder), an illness that is specific to cryptocurrency enthusiasts.

Speaking of the healthier way of fighting bewilderment, digital healthcare provides a lot of wellness dedicated platforms, devices and apps. The Fruit Street app, for example, helps monitor dangerous conditions those suffering from diabetes, or AliveCor – a smartphone-connected device that measures electrocardiogram rhymes. But there is no single, central application or website where the crypto consumer can get appropriate medical care wherever he is, as a resident or as a traveler.

Where doctors can manage their own practice paperless, spending more time figuring out what is the most efficient way of treatment for their patients. Where patients cannot only pay but also earn money, just by providing de-identified data to researchers. Where there are no breaches of securities and worries of hackers stealing information. Some of these features exist separately, but not in one single application.

Let’s come back to the doctors. The first reports that such a clinic or a doctor began to work for cryptocurrency as payment sounded in 2013. In 2018, the medical community is even more actively involved in the world of crypto, and this means that the tokenization of medicine is just around the corner- including the pharmaceutical industry, distributors of medical equipment and scientific laboratories.
