Viuly’s Blockchain Based Video Sharing Platform Announces Pre-ICO on October 10th

Bitcoin Press Release: Viuly announces an investment of EUR 150,000 from blockchain investment company Krypton Capital, as it looks to disrupt the online video industry through a truly decentralized video sharing platform.

September 28, 2017, Zug, Switzerland – Multimedia development company Viuly is pleased to announce an early investment of EUR 150,000 from crypto investment firm Krypton Capital. The deal comes 2 weeks before Viuly’s pre-ICO on October 10th, strengthening its bid to establish the world’s first decentralized blockchain-based video sharing platform. Taking into account advertising, the online video industry is worth hundreds of billions of dollars, and Viuly is on a mission to become the major decentralized platform in the industry.

For more information on Viuly’s mission and development roadmap, visit the Viuly website and read the official Viuly whitepaper here.

About Viuly

Viuly’s goal is to revolutionize the traditional video sharing industry with a first-of-its-kind platform that envisions a fair, unrestricted space for online video while rewarding authors, users and advertisers alike.

Viuly’s mission stems from the current state of affairs in a centralized economy of video sharing, where revenues are unfairly distributed, content is restricted and users are not rewarded. The Viuly platform leverages the benefits of blockchain to overcome these problems through decentralized content distribution, tokenized payments and transparent processes.

Viuly Is The Face Of Tomorrow’s Video Sharing Platform – Blockchain-based Decentralization

Viuly’s mission is to transform the current centralized video sharing economy to reward all network participants. Authors stand to gain much more – up to 65% – of advertising revenue, while users will receive up to 40%. Advertisers will immediately enjoy the benefits of commission-free decentralization.

The Viuly platform will be fully decentralized, eliminating single points of failure. Built on the IPFS protocol, it allows a distributed network of data storage without a shared control center. Anyone in the world can offer their extra disk space for video storage in return for VIU tokens.

Censorship will be made obsolete on the Viuly platform. All users can access all content freely without restrictions and filters. The native system of pre-moderation relies on users themselves to determine if content adheres to a common set of ethical standards. Randomly selected moderators (users with the highest user-assigned ratings) will be alerted when the system flags content as potential violations. If the moderators confirm the violation, the content is deleted and its author’s rating downgraded.

However, the Viuly platform will still adhere to DMCA copyright requests.

The Viuly (VIU) Token and Fundraising

The main tool for transferring value between the network is the VIU token, issued on the Ethereum blockchain. Whether it is rewards for users watching video, or payment for premium content by authors, VIU tokens feature full transparency and anonymity.

VIU’s growth prospects are predicted to be directly associated to its userbase growth, influencing demand and turnover. VIU tokens will never be reissued after the crowdsale.

Viuly’s unique solution of the future for today’s online video industry has already attracted backing from Ukraine-based blockchain investment firm Krypton Capital, who have invested EUR 150,000 in Viuly development. The deal reflects well on Viuly’s vision, as Krypton Capital’s “smart money” philosophy aims to establish strong ecosystems of related companies to grow values and revenues together.

Viuly will launch a pre-ICO on October 10th 2017 to raise further funds to develop the world’s first decentralized video sharing platform. Following this, a public ICO will run from November 1st to 15th. A maximum of 550 million VIU tokens are up for offer at a base rate of 1 ETH = 2,000 VIU.

Viuly benefits from the vast experience of its founding team, with specialists in corporate management, blockchain business, marketing development, promotional strategy and project development. It also relies on support from an established financial technology advisory.

The Token Fund Founders Set October Launch for Tokenbox Platform for Crypto Assets Fund Creation

Bitcoin Press Release: The founders of The Token Fund, one of the first crypto assets funds on the market, today announced pre-crowdsale details for their scheduled Oct. 24 Initial Coin Offering in support of a unique platform to facilitate the creation of new crypto-assets based investment funds.

Moscow, Russia – Tokenbox, a comprehensive system being designed to supply all the trading and compliance infrastructure needed to easily create new investment funds specializing in the fast-evolving cryptocurrency asset class, expects to raise the equivalent of $20 million.

The Tokenbox system was inspired by the experiences of Viktor Shpakovsky and Vladimir Smerkis, co-founders of The Token Fund which, though only six months old, is already one of the most successful collective investment vehicles in the cryptocurrency market, having achieved a 380% increase in portfolio value since startup.

“We quickly recognized two things,” Smerkis said. “First, we needed competitors. There have to be other funds against which ours can be measured. Investment is all about expertise. We have our expertise. But our clients need other funds to look at, based on other people’s expertise. And secondly, it is really not easy setting up an investment fund in the cryptocurrency field, amid volatile values and as regulations evolve.”

According to Shpakovsky, the growing interest of conventional fund managers was another key factor.

“We were getting a lot of approaches from institutional investors and hedge funds looking to white-label our system. They wanted an easy entry-point to the cryptocurrency universe. We realized that, with the appropriate resources, we were in the unique position of being able to provide it. So Tokenbox will be that platform.”

Tokenbox will help anyone — from major institutional investors to well-informed and qualified individuals — to create a new fund taking stakes in either cryptocurrencies or in crypto-based businesses. On the other hand, all investors will be able to choose from a vast variety of crypto portfolios on the Tokenbox platform.  With built-in Know-Your-Customer (KYC) procedures and other compliance fulfillment processes, the system will quickly establish digital investments as a vital new asset class for inclusion in any portfolio.

In its ICO, Tokenbox will offer not more than 31  million tokens at $1 each. Issue date has been set as Oct. 24, 2017. In the pre-ICO period, which begins today, the company will offer tokens in a private pre-sale offer. Tokenbox’s token symbol is TBX. Purchases may be undertaken in either Bitcoin or Ether.

The team behind Tokenbox  is truly international, with financial, technical and compliance veterans from across Europe, the U.S. and Asia, and an advisory board which includes the renowned fintech expert Chris Skinner. 

About Tokenbox

Tokenbox is headquartered in Moscow at 2nd Paveletsky Dr. 5/2. Its Initial Coin Offering is scheduled to open Oct. 24. Closing date is Nov. 7. The ICO will be conducted under Cayman Islands jurisdiction.

Blockchain Gaming Startup TriForce Tokens Announces Pre ICO on 14th of October

Bitcoin Press Release:  Blockchain gaming startup TriForce Tokens has announced some key changes to its upcoming ICO, including token pre-sale dates and campaign structure.

September 28, 2017, Milton Keynes, UK – After careful consideration, UK-based blockchain gaming company TriForce Tokens has announced some key changes to its upcoming ICO campaign. The token Pre-sale will now run from 14th October to 16th October and the main ICO will run for 2 weeks, from 11th November to 25th November 2017. 50 free ledger nano devices will be given at random to pre-sale participants, regardless of contribution made.

TriForce Tokens is a decentralized platform which will provide users within the online gaming community with decentralized P2P trading, anti-piracy protection and the world’s first honorary rewards system. This network will strive to build community collaboration amongst players, whilst encouraging them to work together and reward one another. TriForce Tokens has also just released its official white paper, which follows a series of other recent achievements on its path to the official launch.

The online Indie gaming Industry is currently facing a number of issues, such as the acquisition and retainment of players, meeting revenue targets, player limitations, and high production costs due to the publication of games on the more popular platforms. The Triforce Tokens platform is designed to permanently rectify these issues

TriForce Tokens platform uses an ERC 20-based (FTF) digital token which is designed to eventually become the industry standard on multiple gaming platforms, and hold an increasing value on the open market. One of the tokens main unique features is that it will provide a completely new revenue model for the game developer market. The tokenized platform will also lower player attrition rate, offer behavioral analysis, and give players a new gaming experience where they can build their own digital asset empire.

TriForce CEO Pete Mardell explains the potential of the project, stating,

“Imagine a gaming community that is so collaborative, interactive; alive, you as a player can create and shape your own destiny and wealth. What if, as a developer, you could integrate with ease into a live, analytical platform with deep player insights and new exciting revenue generation models. What if as a player you could create a revenue stream by simply playing the games you love. Well, this is TriForce Tokens, the future of gaming.”

This month TriForce Tokens released their much awaited official white paper. The detailed technical document is the result of months of work of company CEO Pete Mardell and his talented development team. The white paper release follows other recent developments within the company, in the lead-up to the ICO campaign. In the last few months, TriForce Tokens became a full member of gaming industry representative TIGA, partnered with IT Governance LTD in its bid to obtain full ISO27001 accreditation, and sealed a partnership with escrow fund management provider Coinpayments.net. These developments, along with more to come, will enable the project to move closer to its official launch and begin to lead the market.

The Tech behind the token

The basic principle of TriForce Tokens technology can be broken up into three core elements; revenue generation, player and developer protection and community collaboration. TriForce Tokens Peer to Peer trading will allow users to trade items on an open and decentralized marketplace. Players can also compete with one another for rewards, while developers working on the platform can incentivize players to complete various tasks, and set an appropriate fee for all P2P transactions. All transactions work instantly and seamlessly across multiple platforms.

The anti-piracy and behavioral analysis utilizes blockchain technology to provide an authentication network for multiple platforms, to detect piracy. This technology also provides developers on the platform the means to extract revenue for pirated content. The behavioral analysis is enabled through big data interrogation, to provide deep insight into players. Finally, the platform will support player activity profiles and honors, building community trust. The universal honorary system will offer players unique rewards for positive behaviors. It also guarantees that only trustworthy, fully transparent profiles are used, and players can receive additional revenues for simply helping others.

TriForce Tokens Partners with Bitcoin PR Buzz

TriForce Token has recently announced that it has partnered with the World’s first Bitcoin  PR company, ‘Bitcoin PR Buzz’, who will provide invaluable insight, advice and public relations for at least six months. TriForce believes the dedicated team will have a huge impact on the success of the project.

TriForce ICO Campaign – What is Changing?

The Pre-sale open date has been changed to 14th October and will now run for 48 hours, to 16th October 2017, 1:30 pm (GMT). All individuals participating in the Pre-ICO will still receive a 60% bonus but the TFT tokens base cost has been reduced to $0.20 each. All individuals can still participate in the pre-ICO and there is no minimum contribution limit.

The 50 free Ledger Nano S devices will be given to random pre-ICO participants, regardless of contribution amounts.

TriForce Tokens main ICO will now begin from the 1st of November until the 16th of December 2017, 1:30 pm (GMT). The main ICO bonus structure will now be broken up into three tiers: Day 1 participants will receive a 30% bonus, day 2 – 7 participants will receive a 15% bonus, and day 8 – 14 participants will not be eligible for a bonus. The total TFT token supply has been set at 500 Million and from that 375 million has been made available for ICO participants. In the interest of fairness to the community, any remaining tokens will now be burnt, instead of being resold. The total maximum funding cap has been set at 40 million USD.

This project will not only fuel the decentralized gaming ecosystem but is also a cryptocurrency designed for mass consumer adoption, and with a finite number of tokens available the currency is destined to increase in value as real-world usability. The ICO campaign will offer the public the chance to invest in what promises to be one of the best ICO’s of 2017.

FREE Ledger Nano S

The team at Triforce Tokens have generously decided to award 50 free Ledger Nano S cryptocurrency hardware wallets, at random to pre-sale participants, regardless of contribution made. TriForce wants to show their appreciation to contributors for supporting the campaign.
