Fintech Start-Up FidentiaX Introduces World’s 1st Marketplace for Tradable Insurance Policies

Bitcoin Press Release: fidentiaX is building the World’s First Marketplace for tradable insurance policies by leveraging on blockchain technology

October 14th, Singapore Fintech start-up fidentiaX is in the developmental phase of creating the world’s first marketplace for tradable insurance policies by disrupting the status quo by empowering policy holders to monetise policies on the blockchain. fidentiaX will also be setting up fidentiaX Open Source Foundation (fSOF) to proliferate the embracing  of blockchain technology for the insurance industry.

In 2016 alone, the total market size for insurance premiums in the 40 OECD reporting countries was estimated to be in the north of $3.86 trillion dollars and Asia is projected to the be fastest-growing market for life insurance with an estimated real annual compounded growth rate of 10.2%.

findentiaX

The tradable insurance market is faced with inefficiencies such as:

Lack of awareness  Policyholders are unaware that policies are tradable asset which could be sold in the open market for a higher value. In 2015, out of the US$112 billion worth of policies surrendered in the U.S., US$57 billion (estimated 250,000 policies) could be resold.

No Recognizable Marketplace – The lack of a recognizable marketplace makes it challenging for sellers and buyers to connect.

Dependency on 3rd party – In the rare occasion where seller and buyer actually connects, parties need to place trust on a 3rd party to effect the transaction.     

fidentiaX’s marketplace will be a membership-based ecosystem focusing on the key stakeholders and providing the following services:

Policy ledger – Break traditional reliance on intermediaries by creating a digital ledger for policyholders.

Trustless Marketplace – Provides a platform for buyers and sellers to connect and trade policies via the blockchain.

fidentiaX will focus on building its operations within Asia before executing its global expansion strategy. Key countries within Asia are Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia and Singapore.

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.”

About Propy

Propy is the world’s first international real estate marketplace, aimed at solving the problems of purchasing property across borders. Propy facilitates connections between international entities to enable the seamless purchase of international real estate online. The Silicon Valley-based company is advised by Michael Arrington (founder of TechCrunch), Vinny Lingham (CEO of Civic), David Cowan (Partner at Bessemer Venture Partners), Alain Pinel (Intero Real Estate), Daniel Kottke (formerly of Apple), Mike Costache (Managing Partner at KrowdMentor & d10e), and Jeremy Gardner (EIR at Blockchain Capital).

STRIM, On Demand Video Streaming Platform Announces Crowdsale

Bitcoin Press Release: The peer-to-peer on-demand video streaming and sensor mining platform has announced the dates for its upcoming crowdsale.

September 18, 2017, Bucharest, Romania – STRIM Network, an innovative decentralized platform that allows peer-to-peer video streaming and sensor data gathering through IoT devices is offering its tokens for sale starting October 5, 2017, at 22:00 GMT.

For their services, the streamer will be paid in STRIM tokens the price that has been negotiated with the requester.

By enabling decentralized live P2P video, STRIM will provide several advantages over the classic live video services currently available in the market. Compared to the existing services, the blockchain platform will be able to offer all the services at a lower cost for the end-user as the price is not fixed but negotiated by the two parties involved (bid-ask system). Not only does STRIM provide live access to one-time occurrences and feeds, but it also enables data mining from non-conventional devices such as IP cameras, air-quality sensors, noise levels, seismometers, and other IoTs. The platform allows secure collection of anonymous biometric data from different environments, provide remote troubleshooting and assistance services from anywhere in the world.

STRIM has also announced a partnership with decentralized cloud storage giant, Storj, allowing STRIM users to store their videos and data exclusively on Storj platform in the future. As a part of the crowdsale, the platform will be creating 279,544,500 STR tokens. Out of the total number of tokens, 186,544,500 STR will be available to the public at launch.

HomeToken Announces ICO After Raising $3 Million in Pre-ICO Investment, Crowdsale Starts October 1, 2017

Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain based real estate investment start-up, HomeToken has announced the launch dates for its upcoming crowdsale. 

September 16, 2017, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – HomeToken, the Asian blockchain powered investment fund focused on the real estate market has announced the launch date for its upcoming crowdsale. Starting October 1, 2017, the start-up will start offering its WAVES protocol based HOME tokens to the crowdsale participants.

HomeToken has already raised over $3 million in investment during its Pre-ICO fundraising round from Southeast Asian investors. The start-up is offering global investors a unique opportunity to invest in emerging Asia’s real estate market by creating a closed-ended fund to acquire and develop two types of residential properties:

  • Small apartments ranging in sizes from 250 to 1200 square feet strategically located near city centre, and
  • Private nursing homes, the first of which was launched on 1st September 2017.

Real estate investment is one of the safest and most lucrative investment forms that provides good capital appreciation, potential rental income, and a solid hedge against rising inflation. The properties situated in Asia’s emerging markets have the potential to outperform real estate markets in North America and Europe. However, with the price of real estate growing at an accelerated rate than the growth of income, prospective investors and homeowners are resorting to alternative solutions.

Outlining the start-up’s mission, the founder of HomeToken Andrew Yap said,

“Over the past few years, Chinese real estate developers such as Country Garden, invested billions to develop ambitious projects in Southeast Asia. Although real estate prices here are relatively cheap when compared to other parts of the world, the investment properties we own must be strategically located and easy to rent out. In addition, we intend to develop more private nursing homes to tackle Asia’s impending aging crisis”

HomeToken is focused on acquiring high income producing investment properties. By tokenizing these properties, the start-up will simplify real estate investments, democratizing it with blockchain technology and provide a platform for investors to profit from the income-producing properties without the costs and risks of traditional real estate investments.

The underlying profitability model of HomeToken is derived from the rental and capital appreciation of these apartments and nursing homes under its ownership.  With this business model, barriers to entry like mortgages, legal and insurance fees are broken down, purchase and transfer of properties are instantaneous, and liquidity of funds is assured. Additionally, HomeToken will repurchase HOME tokens from the holders at market rates, under its buyback program to avoid inflation of market prices in 2018.

To maintain the integrity, and ensure transparency and accountability, all investments in the HomeToken’s portfolio will be recorded and publicly posted on Youtube. HomeToken will also be responsible for managing and maintaining these investments on behalf of the investors.

The total supply of tokens is limited to 100,000,000, out of which 65% will be made available for the crowdsale, 20% will go into future partnerships and joint ventures, 5% for marketing costs, and the remaining 10% will be retained by the development and management team. The funds generated during the ICO stage will be kept in a multi-signature wallet with escrow. All unsold tokens will be burned.

HomeToken has already made headway by opening its first private nursing home, as a part of its portfolio which received its first resident on September 7, 2017. With a pre-existing real estate portfolio, geopolitical developments surrounding China’s One Belt One Road policy and skyrocketing property prices has put HomeToken in a unique position to forge meaningful alliances with other potential partners in the coming days as the demand for properties in the region is expected to increase further.

Bitcoin Press Release: The revolutionary blockchain based logistics platform, IMMLA looks forward to raising $38 million as it announces crowdsale.

September 14, 2017, Saint-Petersbourg – The blockchain-based, Uber-like platform for cargo delivery, IMMLA has announced the launch of its main token sale. The crowdsale follows the recently concluded Pre-ICO that raised over $500,000 from its early participants. The main token sale is set to go live on September 15, 2017, and during the month-long campaign, it is expected to raise about $38 million.

The total size of logistics market is estimated to be around $8.1 trillion, of which logistics outsourcing makes up for almost $760 billion. IMMLA revolutionizes the industry be introducing a decentralized service that uses smart contracts on blockchain to achieve scalability. The IMMLA solution puts the power of making the logistics decision back into the hands of the freight owner. It does so by enabling owners to choose the best solution out of thousands of multi-modal transportation options, to ensure the best price, time and quality of service.

As the company works towards positioning itself as the Uber for freight logistics, the platform can potentially earn as much as 1% of the cost of serviced transportation, making it a revolutionary low-cost yet high quality and safe forwarding service. The IMMLA team is backed by an expert team of the world’s best in logistics and IT. The platform’s mission is to create a safe and convenient interaction between the cargo owner and the carrier at all stages of the cargo transportation process, powered by an international multimodal logistics application based on the Ethereum blockchain. This new technology will dramatically reduce the number of the personnel involved in logistics planning, information barriers, and legal costs.

IMMLA has set out on a month-long crowdsale, during which participants will have a chance to buy 434,477,177 IML tokens (for 122,888 ETH or $ 32,8 mln as of 13 September 2017). The token sale will happen over four lots, with the token price becoming expensive by about 2.5% across each lot. The first, second, third and fourth lots are assigned 170053520 IML, 103725856 IML, 100319718 IML and 60378083 IML tokens respectively. One ETH can buy 3640 IML in the first lot, 3549 IML in second, 3458 in third and 3367 IML in the fourth lot.

Safe ICO

There are two possible scenarios to the crowdfunding and issuance of IML tokens:

1) If the ICO succeeds, the IMMLA founders will receive 10% of the tokens that will be in turn frozen for five months. During this period IMMLA will start servicing the first commercial transportation in the auto-truck services market;

2) In case less than 18,000,000 IML tokens are sold, the raised ETH will automatically return to the investors.

Use of funds

The funds raised during the ICO will be directed towards the launch of a road and sea freight module in 2018.  There will be a phased development and introduction of new modules into the service every nine months. “Air” and “Customs” in 2019, “Forwarding” and “Warehouse” in 2020, and “Railway” in 2021.

Step-by-step IMMLA team will create a multimodal blockchain forwarder based on their proprietary Logismart solution and the Ethereum blockchain. The team is also prepared to launch these modules earlier than stated if the budget and knowledge pool expands.

Each module comprises of five components. They are:

  • Web service and interface
  • Delivery analysis service (DAS)
  • Document management service (DMS)
  • Delivery tracking service (DTS)
  • Blockchain
  • Focus on the Asian logistics market

Having observed the progress in the development of blockchain technologies logistics in the Asian Region, IMMLA has rescheduled the service launch in China and its neighboring countries two years earlier from 2021 to 2019. Moreover, the working strategy has changed towards the one with maximum localization and adaptation to the local market as well as aggressive marketing.

The working strategies in other regions remain unchanged. In 2019 IMMLA will begin to operate in the Eastern European market, in 2020 – in Western Europe, in 2021-2022 – in Africa and three regions of America. Although being very promising for IMMLA, the American continent is extremely competitive. On the other hand, the Asian region is more open. Therefore, the development in the region of Asia will allow a more rapid subsequent expansion into the markets of North and South America and Africa.

The updated IMMLA strategy has been presented in Whitepaper ver. 2.0 published on 13 September. Furthermore, on 10 September the pre-alpha version of IMMLA was launched.

Chimaera to Release Revolutionary Game Technology Based on Blockchain – Token Sale on the Horizon

Bitcoin Press Release: Chimaera makes decentralized game development easier and more economical with its groundbreaking blockchain-backed solution.

September 13, 2017, Preston, United Kingdom – Chimaera, a group of gaming and blockchain experts who have been building in the scene since 2013, has set out to challenge the status quo in the video game industry – especially when it comes to development costs – by empowering game developers and studios of all sizes. The platform they are working on provides a complete set of tools, enabling creatives and companies to create decentralized universes on their own native blockchain outside the crowded Ethereum ecosystem. And it will drastically lower the bar for creatives building gaming worlds on the blockchain.

In order to revolutionize the industry, the innovative group of veteran blockchain gaming developers has decided to set up a crowdsale to raise necessary funds and encourage community participation. The pre-token generation event, as a part of this campaign, is set to go live within a month’s time. The platform will soon officially announce the dates for the upcoming crowdsale following which interested cryptocurrency, gaming and investor community can purchase CHI tokens.

Interested parties are invited to sign up on the platform’s official website to receive updates about the crowdsale.

The development of Chimaera goes back almost four years – when the creators of the platform launched Huntercoin – a proof of concept that marked the origin of blockchain-based gaming. Since then the team has strengthened itself by getting experienced developers, blockchain experts, and business developers to create a powerhouse needed to build a full-fledged game development ecosystem, building up a powerful and loyal community along the way.

The video game industry has always had a high entry barrier. Even though there is no shortage of talented developers, only the most successful of indies or AAA games with very deep pockets make it to the market. Chimaera is turning this capital-intensive industry accessible to everyone by democratizing it using distributed ledger technology.

So far, crowdfunding has had limited success when it comes to bringing ideas to life. The cryptocurrency technology, with some of the highest grossing crowdsales under its belt, is gradually changing the notion. Chimaera is not only leveraging on the shifting trend, but it is also making use of the very technology to reduce the costs involved in game development and deployment drastically.

The Chimaera platform has its own independent blockchain, powered by CHI tokens. It also has a range of pioneering features that allow it to reduce the costs for developers while increasing the scalability of games. These tokens also play an important part in the in-game economies, ensuring participation, engagement, and transaction of value between games.

Andrew Colosimo, founder at Chimaera explains the current industry scenario saying,

“Creating rich autonomous virtual worlds is a complex and costly undertaking. Many independent developers are unable to get their concept to market because managing the game complexity, the cost of infrastructure (such as servers), as well as publishing and account administration, represent significant barriers.“

Chimaera is designed to provide unprecedented flexibility and convenience to the game developers. Some of Chimaera’s notable features include game channels and ephemeral timestamps. The Chimaera blockchain ensures that all participants in a decentralized game reach consensus on the current game state. With innovative off-chain scaling technology, it ensures that games remain fair and decentralized without burdening the shared blockchain with unnecessary data.

Explaining Chimaera’s technology, the Lead Blockchain Developer Dr. Daniel Kraft said,

“We have developed an extension of the payment channels in Bitcoin that can be applied to game moves between multiple players off the blockchain and thus aid in scaling Chimaera to its global target size. The same concept can also be used for “shards” of a global game world, to enable limitless and near-real time gaming on the blockchain.”

As far as blockchain based gaming goes, gamers on the Chimaera platform will only have to process and store states for games they are participating in, which is quite different from Ethereum in which every full node fully processes and stores the state for every contract.

The platform is designed to be compatible with popular game development environments like Unity and Unreal Engine. The ready SDKs and APIs make it easier for developers to create blockchain games that can utilize Chimaera’s infrastructure across various genres. The platform can be utilized to create decentralized autonomous MMO games, turn based games, real time strategy games and more.

The platform is on its way to create an entire developer ecosystem, complete with code samples, tutorials, developer forums and a dedicated support system operated by the Chimaera team. With all the resources at disposal, developers with varying experience and skill levels can easily start building games over the blockchain and integrate it with a range of Chimaera modules including wallets, mining applications, matchmaking, payment integrations, secure social network, trading and more.

The world market capacity of towing service estimates more than 26 bln. USD. With more private and commercial vehicles hitting the roads, the need for efficient towing services arises due to vehicular breakdown, motor accidents, improper/illegal parking, impounding, etc. It will become a priority to ensure obstruction-free traffic, enforcement of law and order, and even the convenience of vehicle owners.

By using blockchain and cross-platform programs, CarTaxi has created a network of registered and licensed car towing service providers. This project has made major breakthroughs in the quality of the service provided for corporate and private clients. CarTaxi introduces accountability to an industry which is mostly fragmented. It provides easy access to the right towing company at the time of need. The platform’s application makes towing service accessible with a single touch of a button on any smartphone.

This blockchain based service has over 1500 registered car towing companies.

With the blockchain implementation, CarTaxi gains an advantage over traditional aggregators, enabling global expansion in no time. It uses blockchain technology based on Ethereum and expedites payment transactions between car towing service providers and tokenholders which altogether provides transparency in the oversite of company activity.

Smart contracts provide interfaces for operating business processes, starting from registering a new client and getting a new towing service provider connected to successfully completing a client’s order and settling payments with service providers and investors. With every new order the smart contract records the client’s coordinates, vehicle parameters and estimated time of arrival of a tow truck.

If a car towing company does not reach its destination within the estimated time – it will be subject to penalties. The car towing service provider checks the order details and conducts an inspection for vehicle damage. If the details don’t match, the smart contract does not allow to proceed to the next step – loading the vehicle. When the order is completed, the program analyzes the final parameters and automatically pays the towing company.

Smart contracts include basic mechanisms of DAO: tokenholders vote on dispersing company revenue.

Control over order fulfilment is especially important because the company plans to provide services for vehicle transportation over large distances, between cities and countries, in difficult logistical scenarios.

The upcoming Pre-ICO on August 30, 2017, will go on until September 19, 2017, which will be followed by the official ICO campaign set to begin on September 29, 2017 until October 29, 2017. CarTaxi has set a total cap of 500 million CTX, of which 12.5 million will be available in pre-sale and rest at the time of ICO. During pre-sale investors can purchase CarTaxi tokens with a 45% bonus.

The proceeds from token offering will be invested in further development of CarTaxi’s service. CarTaxi has scheduled blockchain activation during Q4 2017, followed by its expansion into USA and China in 2018 and Europe in 2019. With the opening of representative offices in India and South America, the platform will be available worldwide by 2021.

Dether, World’s First P2P Ether Network to Be a Game Changer for Ethereum Mass Adoption

Bitcoin Press Release: Ethereum smart contracts powered Dether empowers users to buy Ether with cash and spend it at physical stores.

August 4, 2017, Paris, France – Dether is on a mission to drive cryptocurrency, especially Ether adoption among the masses with its game changing application. The Ethereum smart contract based platform makes it easier for users to purchase Ether tokens with cash and spend it anywhere including physical stores. Dether eliminates the need for a bank account, and all a user needs is a mobile phone with internet connectivity to start using the cryptocurrency.

The Ethereum blockchain protocol is gaining a lot of attention in the recent days as it opens doors to a trustless digital world where applications don’t have any kind of censorship, fraud or third-party interference. However, there remains a roadblock when it comes to purchasing Ether as it is currently a long and tedious process. Dether wants to change that by offering a simple solution that makes easier for people to lay their hands on the cryptocurrency.

To promote the Ethereum ecosystem, Dether has built a decentralized application (Dapp), creating a worldwide ecosystem of Ether buyers, sellers and physical stores that are willing to trade Ether for fiat cash and accept the cryptocurrency as a means of payment.

Creating a P2P Bridge between Fiat Currency and Ethereum Cryptocurrency

Dether empowers any Ether owner to become a teller and have an accessible way to make money. They can act as mobile ATMs by getting listed on Dether map and start selling Ether for fiat currency anywhere in the world. At the same time, those who are interested in buying the cryptocurrency can just open the Dether map, use its built-in location system to discover sellers near them. They can also view sellers’ ether/fiat rates, fees, and even initiate an anonymous chat over an encrypted peer-to-peer messaging solution from within the app. Upon agreeing to the trading conditions, the seller and the user can decide a meeting point and carry out the exchange.

The Dether map also includes information about the network of physical stores that accept ether as a mode of payment or wish to trade the cryptocurrency for cash. By listing on Dether, merchants not only get the much-needed publicity as an outlet embracing cryptocurrencies, but also an early entry into the segment which will eventually be dominated by Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies.

The co-founder of Dether Hamid Benyahia said,

“Our mission is to break barriers to foster Ethereum mass adoption.”

The platform is a result of the frustrations experienced by Hamid after his family members in Algeria, restricted by the Algerian dinar, weren’t able to interact with the Ethereum blockchain. And, Dether is the solution Hamid and his team came up with to make Ethereum accessible to anyone on earth.

A Fully Decentralized Solution That Brings More Security to Buyers and Sellers

Unlike existing solutions, Dether has a technology roadmap that integrates different key elements of decentralization into each feature, propelling it towards full decentralization. In the Dether ecosystem, no central entity has any control over the users’ accounts, funds, conversations, etc. The communications between buyers and sellers on the platform are peer-to-peer and completely decentralized. The platform won’t hold the funds and user will remain anonymous.

Another co-founder, Mehdi Amari said,

“From its outset, we envisioned and built Dether to be a fully decentralized solution. We strongly believe that having a trustless solution is the key to Dether’s success. Users must be able to exchange and trade with one another with trust, despite not knowing each other beforehand. In other words, we’ve decided to align our strategy with blockchain’s core principles, where the power of its users, and not a central entity, determines its success.”

Powered by Ethereum smart contracts, the reputation system is also fully decentralized. Buyers and sellers have their own public reputation rating based on the transactions they have successfully achieved and its respective volumes.

From the Arab Spring to a Decentralized Peer-To-Peer Ether Network

Explaining the importance of decentralized model, Hamid provides an example of the Arab Spring movement. He said,

“I remembered the huge demonstrations that happened in North Africa and the Middle East back in 2011. I thought that if these populations had had the chance back then to have a decentralized social network, for example, it would have prevented a lot of activists from going to prison, as they were constantly identified through social media. And when I look at all of the decentralized applications that are being developed on top of Ethereum, it only consolidates my initial idea that more and more people will use it, and that one of its challenges is mass adoption.”

For months, the team of eight Blockchain and Ethereum enthusiasts have been working on Dether. The team will release an alpha version this summer and is already looking for testers. Users will be able to create their Dether wallet, communicate anonymously with each other and start trading together.
