E4ROW Contract on a Mission to Aggressively Expand Etherverse

Bitcoin Press Release: Open source E4ROW contract brings gaming escrow functions to the Ethereum blockchain, paves way for expansion of the Ethereum user base.

April 24, 2017, Tel Aviv, Israel — Live Player Games announces the release of the E4ROW Ethereum escrow contract, and the first app that uses the E4ROW contract: Uncle Finney’s Poker. Uncle Finney’s Poker is one of the first poker apps for Android devices that enables players to bet and win Ether (ETH). E4ROW is launching a Contribution Campaign on May 2, 2017 at 12:00 A.M., GMT.

E4ROW, which stands for “Ether 4 the Rest Of the World”, is an open source contract that performs sophisticated escrow functions. E4ROW’s mission is to aggressively expand the universe of Ether users by bringing Ether-based apps to the global online/mobile gaming markets. The E4ROW contract that is at the core of these apps enables players to bet and win Ether in a secure and transparent manner. The goal of these games is to introduce Ether to millions of new users, thus increasing the overall adoption, viability and value of Ether.

Unlike other crypto-ventures that are marketing to the extremely limited, technologically savvy community of those familiar with cryptocurrencies, E4ROW is attempting to break into the infinitely larger market of online and mobile gamers to create a tidal wave of new Ether users unlike anything previously seen in Ether’s history. Unlike many Ethereum projects that seek to raise crowdfunding based upon incomplete products, E4ROW and Uncle Finney’s Poker are professionally developed software that are complete, tested, and ready for market.

Poker is the most popular card game in the world, with over 100 million players worldwide and more than 250 poker apps appearing in the Google Play store. Virtually all of these Android apps require that players bet fake coins that have no real value outside of the game environment. By contrast, Uncle Finney’s Poker enables Android users to bet and win Ether.

E4ROW is launching a Contribution Campaign, enabling those wishing to support E4ROW’s mission to purchase tokens beginning May 2, 2017 at 12:00 A.M., GMT and ending 3 weeks thereafter. Every escrow transaction handled by the E4ROW contract collects a 2% escrow fee. These fees are proportionally divided among the E4ROW token holders and paid out as perpetual distributions. While the primary goal of E4ROW is to promote Ether and rapidly expand its user base, the developers believe that the limited number of token holders have the potential to earn significant ongoing returns due to the massive global market for poker and the other games in development.

The E4ROW token sale differs from some recent ICOs in that:

  • Not Vaporware: product is complete, operational and ready for market
  • Developer Tokens: Developer tokens are locked for 12 months from end of sale
  • Ongoing Returns: Token holders receive ongoing returns from escrow fees earned by E4ROW.
  • Proof-of-Functionality Threshold: At least 5,000 transactions must be successfully completed within 90 days of sale, else 90% of funds raised will be returned to investors.

Decred Releases v1.0: The World’s First Cryptocurrency of the People, for the People, and by the People

Bitcoin Press Release: Decred, a creation of Bitcoin developers, rolls out decentralized governance, claiming a first in blockchain technology.

Decred is a cryptocurrency project and platform built from the ground up to leverage the will of its constituents to drive change. This approach eliminates the conflicts that arise when powerful entities attempt to assert control over a cryptocurrency. Decred adapts to continually meet the needs of the people it serves.

April 25, 2017 marks the highly anticipated release of Decred v1.0. This historic release puts Decred stakeholders in charge of shaping the future of Decred through direct community consensus voting. For the first time in the history of cryptocurrencies, governing control moves away from centralized authorities, such as developers and miners, and is given to the community of stakeholders. Decentralization struggles without decentralized governance; this is especially true when it comes to a rapidly growing global currency.

Most cryptocurrencies distinguish themselves by how they secure the transactions on their network. For example, Bitcoin is famous for using a proof-of-work algorithm that rewards miners for finding solutions to a cryptographic hash puzzle. Other cryptocurrency projects rely on proof-of-stake algorithms that reward users who hold the currency in a “staking” wallet with interest on the balances they carry. Both approaches have strengths and limitations; Decred takes advantage of the best of both worlds with a hybrid proof-of-work and proof-of-stake consensus system. This allows the platform to strike a balance between benefits to both miners and stakeholders, giving rise to a more robust notion of consensus.

The 1.0 release of Decred will include the first community vote on two important issues. After 75% or more of miners and stakeholders have updated to 1.0, Decred stakeholders will be able to vote on one consensus change and one signaling vote. Due to the rapidly growing popularity of Decred, the number of stakeholders buying vote tickets has increased dramatically, leading to large oscillations in the ticket price. This is a good example of an unanticipated condition which needs to be resolved though community consensus. A new ticket price algorithm will aim to ease the large oscillations in ticket price and lead to better ticket price discovery while still maintaining the target ticket pool size. A consensus change of this magnitude is very difficult to achieve in more traditional cryptocurrencies and requires the voluntary acceptance of the code by miners that may or may not have their own agendas. If it passes, the new ticket price algorithm will activate seamlessly for everyone with no further intervention.

The second vote will allow stakeholders to signal support for Lightning Network development. The Lightning Network is a payment layer that makes it economical and fast to process payments, especially small payments, like buying a cup of coffee without having to pay a large transaction fee to process the transaction. If this signaling vote passes, the developers will begin work on integrating Lightning Network on the Decred blockchain. Once development is complete and tested, a future consensus vote can be taken to automatically activate the Lightning Network code.

The recent Decred 2017 roadmap [1] highlights some of the other massive innovations that the team hopes to put up for a vote throughout the year. In addition, a new improvement proposal system will be put in place soon to allow for the community to contribute directly to the agenda for Decred.

The release of Decred 1.0 is a watershed moment in the cryptocurrency movement. Decred finally does what has never been done before, putting the power of change in the hands of the very people that care about it most.

Decred is celebrating version 1.0.0 release with a puzzle challenge. The ‘Autonomy Puzzle’ challenge [2] features an initial prize of 500 decred (DCR) to the first solver, equivalent to approximately USD 7,500 at the time of this release. However, players will be working against the clock, as the prize will be reduced every 24 hours. The puzzle difficulty level has been rated ‘easy to medium’, as Decred is aiming to include participants of all skill levels. For more specific details or to join the puzzle solving conversation, visit the Decred Slack channel #puzzles.

Bitcoin IRA Launches World’s First Ethereum IRA

Self-directed retirement accounts for second-largest cryptocurrency will be secured exclusively with BitGo multi-signature wallets.

April 19, 2017, Los Angeles, USA – BitcoinIRA.com has announced the launch of Ethereum IRA, a self-directed IRA for the second-most popular cryptocurrency (by market cap) in the world. Ethereum IRA is the second product launched by the company following its highly-successful Bitcoin IRA, which has secured over $10,000,0000 worth of real bitcoin in client custodial accounts since launching in June of 2016.

Similar to its flagship product, Bitcoin IRA, investors can hold real Ethereum in retirement accounts by choosing between traditional IRAs, Roth IRAs, 401(k)s, SEP IRAs, and more. The company will use TradeBlock s ECX Index as a reference rate and Genesis Global Trading, Inc. for liquidity. To store investor funds, the company has entered an exclusive partnership with BitGo, utilizing its multi-signature wallet to ensure privacy, security, and full compliance with IRS regulations for selfdirected retirement accounts.

“It’s been a pleasure working with the innovative team at Bitcoin IRA, ” said Mike Belshe, CEO of BitGo. “Together, we foresee tremendous opportunity and growth for our clients.”

Bitcoin IRA is the first and only company to offer cryptocurrency-based IRAs for investors, allowing them to hold actual cryptocurrencies in a retirement account. Unlike traditional ETFs and investment plans, investors in Bitcoin IRA and Ethereum IRA continue to own their cryptocurrency even after the end of the IRA tenure, allowing them to freely distribute it.

The unique properties of cryptocurrencies make them uniquely suited for long term investment. In 2017, Ethereum has witnessed an incredible 388% growth from less than $10 per unit to over $44.

“Cryptocurrency as an industry is on a new wave of mainstream adoption. As a business, it made sense to listen to our clients,“ explained Chris Kline, COO of Bitcoin IRA. “They wanted Ethereum, so we delivered.”

About Bitcoin IRA

Bitcoin IRA is the only Bitcoin-based retirement investment portfolio that allows people to invest with actual bitcoins for their IRA or 401(k). The platform works with leading fintech professionals to provide secure, highquality Bitcoin investments.

Bitcoin IRA offers both traditional and Roth IRA options, which offer the same tax incentives as regular IRAs and 401(k)s. The company differentiates itself from other Bitcoin investment products in multiple ways. Unlike Bitcoin ETFs and investment funds, Bitcoin IRA offers an opportunity for individuals to invest in real Bitcoin at a much lower fee. In addition, investors keep total control over their Bitcoin deposits, with no holding fees and the ability to withdraw once the term is over.

VOISE Ethereum Music Sharing and Monetization Platform Announces ICO Crowdsale

Bitcoin Press Release: The Ethereum blockchain-based decentralized music streaming and download platform VIOSE to start crowdsale on May 6, 2017.

April 10, 2017 – VOISE, the blockchain-based platform dedicated to artists and music lovers has announced the launch of its Voisium tokens (VSM) crowdsale, starting May 6, 2017. The crowdsale is part of VOISE platform’s alpha stage roadmap which includes the development and release of a range of client software.

The innovative VOISE platform is built on Ethereum blockchain with the aim of empowering independent artists and musicians while enabling music lovers to discover, stream and download unique content. Artists joining VOISE platform will be able to monetize their content without the involvement of third parties or record labels who charge huge commissions. VOISE adopts an ethical business model where 100% of the revenues on the platform is distributed to the artists.

The development team behind VOISE is working on creating an easy-to-use platform which doesn’t require users to possess special skills or prior knowledge of cryptocurrency and its underlying technology. The platform intends to introduce cryptocurrency and blockchain to the huge music industry in which many are still unaware of its potential. In order to ensure familiarity with existing infrastructure and facilitate the transition between technologies, VOISE will also include support for fiat currencies on the platform.

VOISE for Users

For content consumers, VOISE is just like any other online music store application with a huge collection of tracks categorized according to release dates, genres, and albums. They can browse through the collection and purchase the content of their choice using a range of currencies. However, unlike other app stores, VOISE store offers a much better collection of music created by independent artists.

If a user is a content creator, then they can also upload their creations to the platform and make it available for distribution. The VOISE Radio feature provides unlimited free and paid content for music lovers to listen and enjoy.

Voisium Crowdsale

Voisium (VSM), the native cryptocurrency on VOISE platform is created using Ethereum smart contract technology, and it is available for purchase during the upcoming month-long crowdsale. The VSM tokens can not only be used to purchase content over the platform but also for peer-to-peer transfers and trading against other cryptocurrencies. The platform has set a finite supply of 100 million VSM tokens, making room for appreciation of its value as adoption increases.

Investors in VOISE platform stand to receive 160 VSM for every ETH contributed. However, those participating in the ICO during the first 16-hour window will be eligible for an additional 25% early bird bonus.

The proceeds from Voisium crowdsale will be utilized for further development of the platform to include a variety of features. The inclusion of fiat currency support will be one of the main features to be added in the near future. Soon users will be able to pay for the content on VOISE with USD, EUR and GBP seamlessly, just like they would with iTunes. They can later switch to using VSM for such transactions once they get familiar with the platform. The fiat support will be enabled through partnerships with exchange platforms, which VOISE intends to seek once it builds a significant user base.

The upcoming crowdsale is just the beginning of the creation of an exciting platform capable of changing the way the music industry works. The decentralized, democratized platform provides equal opportunity for artists to publish and monetize the work, irrespective of their experience or the record labels they have/had signed up with. The use of blockchain technology and VSM cryptocurrency also helps the platform reach a global audience with quality content.

About VOISE

VOISE is a blockchain-based content distribution and monetization platform for the music industry. It introduces the multibillion-dollar global music industry to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
