Propy Announces World’s First Real Estate Purchase on Ethereum Blockchain

Bitcoin Press Release: TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington’s purchase of an apartment in Ukraine marks a milestone that opens the floodgates for real asset transfers on the blockchain.

September 30, 2017, San Francisco, California – Propy, the global property store and decentralized title registry, today announced the world’s first real estate transaction on the distributed public blockchain network — Ethereum. TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington remotely purchased a $60,000 apartment in Kiev, settled via smart contracts and in Ethereum cryptocurrency and PRO (Propy) tokens—marking the first-ever cryptocurrency transaction in Ukraine and the first real asset transfer via blockchain. The latest transaction opens the door for many more remote real estate transactions on the blockchain.

Natalia Karayaneva, CEO of Propy said,

“I’m thrilled to see Propy leading the charge in putting real estate on the blockchain—bringing transparency, efficiency, and security to an industry traditionally fraught with red tape and bureaucracy. Ukrainian real estate is very affordable, and the Ukrainian market will soon be growing dynamically. This purchase is an important signal to foreign investors—especially Chinese, who face strict capital controls of $50,000 per person—that they can safely and easily invest in this market and, soon, other countries.”

Arrington’s real estate purchase from Ukrainian developer Mark Ginsburg is the latest in a string of successes for Propy. In September the company raised $15 million in a pre-sale and crowdsale of PRO tokens—making it one of the ten highest-earning ICOs this summer. It also entered into an official partnership with the government of Ukraine, which has agreed to pilot the blockchain title registry. The partnership—Propy’s first with a foreign government coincides with new legislation allowing foreign investors to purchase land in Ukraine as of January 1, 2018.

By utilizing Ethereum blockchain—a technology that is quickly gaining on the Bitcoin blockchain as the blockchain of choice for developers, Propy has taken an important first step in automating real estate purchases on the burgeoning global real estate market.

Karayaneva continued,

“This is only the beginning. With this transaction, we’ve broken first ground in putting the $217 trillion real estate market on the blockchain. We’re starting with Ukraine, but over the coming year we plan to facilitate real estate transactions with the use of PRO tokens in California, Vermont, and Dubai.”

FTB announces its Initial Coin Offering campaign

Bitcoin Press Release: After successfully realizing its private investment target, FTB is pleased to announce the launch of its Initial Coin Offering to the public on October 1. A total of 10 billion FTB Fincoins are available in the sale. These tokens represent shares in the company and allow investors to purchase services at more advantageous prices.

October 1, 2017, Bolzano, Italy — FTB is set to disrupt the crypto investment industry through the development of a platform capable of enhancing blockchain values. FTB’s unique approach to investments is based on an ecosystem of financial tools that allow users to invest in digital currencies backed by blockchain security and real world assets.

With vigorous attention to users’ experiences and in-depth expertise in the cryptocurrency industry, FTB makes it possible for users without technical or financial know-how to exploit high earning opportunities based on the crypto market’s volatility.

Key Investment Tools

Connect World Funds: Connected World Funds — or CWF — is a seamless investment tool that enables investors to purchase tokens representing real world investment funds and allows them to switch between these funds by simply exchanging their tokens.

Imagine if there was a token tied to a JP Morgan funds’ value, one that the user can seamlessly switch to a Goldman Sachs fund simply by exchanging their FTB_JP_Morgan token with FTB_Goldman_Sachs_one.

FTB makes it easy to buy these new tokens. All the user has to do is take advantage of the infrastructure built around Connect World Funds and accumulate profit.

Crypto-Funds Investments: Through cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies, FTB’s platform provides investments  opportunities in the new and emerging crypto-markets, giving insights on potential high-earning assets. FTB does not require large investments for high returns. The platform is dedicated to identifying the best opportunities for investors.

Cloud Funds: This new concept of perceiving common investment funds allows users to execute operations based on other investors ideas. FTB allows investors to take advantage of the community’s financial and economic knowledge by organizing user-generated ideas in specific forums. The strategy that receives the highest consensus will be executed. This concept is particularly helpful when investing in emerging crypto-markets without profound understanding of the economic factors involved.

ZEUS: The First EcoCryptoMining in the World

Bitcoin Press Release: ZEUS is a blockchain start-up that combines a waste processing plant with a cryptocurrency mining farm. Starting October 1, 2017, ZEUS will offer its Ethereum-based tokens to crowdsale participants. ZEUS Token will allow to investors to participate in the project’s development and entitle them to receiving high and stable income.

September 25, 2017, Dresden, Germany — The average human generates about 300kg of waste annually. Today, the population of the earth is about 7.5 billion people and is projected to reach 8 billion by 2024. In the EU, about 2 billion tons of garbage per year are formed, of which about 200 million tons are household waste. This issue is the heart of FinTech start-up, Zeus.

ZEUS is the world’s first blockchain-based recycling company specializing in recycling garbage into electricity for cryptocurrency mining. Leveraging technical expertise and blockchain technology, ZEUS is developing a EcoCryptoMining project that combines waste management and processing to solve the biggest problem with cryptocurrency mining: electricity. The electricity generated by the company’s plant will be used in powering a cryptocurrency mining farm.  

This unique “green production” platform is set to solve not only the energy consumption needs of the cryptocurrency mining community, but will also commercialize the other by-products of recycling as part of its environmental consciousness and financial empowerment program.

Cryptocurrency mining hardware has become far more efficient compared to a few years ago at the cost of increased electricity consumption per device. This is especially true for Bitcoin, whose increasingly excessive electricity consumption makes it impossible to mine on anywhere else than on a mining farm.

“I always wanted to do something important to improve the ecology of our planet” Serg Bayev, the project’s Escrow said.

“I had experience in the field of waste processing prior to this project. As cryptocurrencies developed and grew in popularity, my friends decided to start mining. It so happened that this was the year we met with Boleslav Wojciechowski, an active miner in Poland. Our conversations frequent conversations often revolves around the issue of electricity, its consumption, its role in the mining process and its value. This was when we came up with the idea of combining waste processing with a mining farm. We immediately contacted my good friend and an excellent professional with experience in implementing recycling projects in Europe – Alexei Karasev, who was right away invited to become our partner and project technical director.”

To fund the development of the project, ZEUS will issue its Ethereum-based tokens to the public as proof-of-membership. 1,000,000 tokens will be sold during its pre-ICO campaign at €0.5 each, or its equivalent in BTC/ETH.
