EQUI: Digital Venture Capitalism

EQUI brings venture capitalism to the Digital Age.

The tokenization of the global economy has paved the way for venture capitalism to finally be freed from the clutches of the ultra-wealthy, and to be available to ordinary investors. EQUI, founded by esteemed entrepreneurs Doug Barrowman and Baroness Mone of Mayfair, is the most prominent example of this expansion of economic opportunity.

The tokenization of the economy allows for businesses to raise funds from a wider array of investors, unhampered by national borders or antiquated regulations. The Ethereum blockchain, on top of which the native token of the platform, EQUItoken, runs, is decentralized and censorship-resistant, allowing anyone in the world to participate in its network. Moreover, the Ethereum blockchain is immutable and transparent, preventing hackers and thieves from reversing transactions, and allowing users to verify the transactions in the network. The expanded possibilities for raising money utilizing the blockchain will allow more businesses to raise the funds that they need to thrive, stimulating economies and creating jobs. The blockchain can potentially bring about unparalleled economic growth, especially in developing nations where credit for small and medium-sized businesses is scarce.

Venture capitalists have played a critical role for startups and emerging businesses by providing funds and expertise in exchange for surrendering a portion or share of the business. The founders of EQUI, Doug Barrowman and Baroness Mone of Mayfair, will provide businesses with access to funding, mentorship, and strategic guidance on the platform, and both have massive credibility for this undertaking. Doug Barrowman, who founded the Knox Group, manages about £1.5 billion in funds. Baroness Mone of Mayfair founded and currently owns a 20 percent stake in the lingerie company Ultimo, and has complete ownership of fake-tanning brand UTan. Having been raised in a working-class family, she rose to become an eminent businesswoman, eventually being given peerage. She is highly sought-after as a speaker, commanding £25,000 per speech in the UK.

To invest in startups using the platform, users will need EQUItokens, which are ERC20 compatible and can be stored in popular Ethereum wallets. Those who invest in companies within the platform get to keep 75 percent of the net profits, and the remaining 25 percent will go to the team to ensure they are incentivized to provide their knowledge and experience for the growth of the platform.  Given the essential support the team will provide to businesses, 25 percent is a reasonable amount for compensation.

The presale for EQUI will take place from March 1, 2018 to March 14, 2018, and the main crowdsale will take place from March 15, 2018 to April 12, 2018. During the main crowdsale, EQUI will have a nominal price of $0.50. Those who wish to participate in the main crowdsale must buy at least $100 of EQUItokens. For cryptocurrency enthusiasts who are interested in a project combining the traditional venture capitalist world with the emerging world of cryptocurrencies, this crowdsale may be appealing.

Thrive: Digital Ads Powered by Blockchain

Thrive is an ad marketplace powered by blockchain.

Using the power and efficiency of blockchain technology, Thrive intends to create the world’s premier decentralized marketplace that best meets the needs of advertisers and consumers. As a marketplace powered by the blockchain, it will bring transparency to the industry, lower costs for businesses, and protect brands.

The blockchain will be a disruptive technology in virtually all industries and particularly in advertising. Given its distributed and censorship-resistant nature, it cannot be controlled by monopolies or special interests that prevent competition. Because transactions on the blockchain are transparent and globally viewable, and given their secure and immutable nature, fraud and cheating are minimized if not eliminated. The smart contract capabilities of the Thrive blockchain will remove the need for intermediaries such as brokers, thus reducing costs for advertisers. Smart contracts are contracts that self-execute when two parties to a transaction have met their part of the bargain. As self-executing contracts, they are trustless, essentially removing the need for parties to concern themselves with the trustworthiness of a third party.

For the advertising industry, protecting the image of brands is essential. Increasingly, brands are concerned about their ads being placed next to inappropriate online content, such as hate speech or obscenity. Given the value that brands have for businesses, the placement of their ads next to inappropriate content has the potential to harm their image and business. Thrive will protect brands by incentivizing users to rate websites so that advertisers will be better able to select publishers who meet their criteria and also engage in more targeted marketing. The misplacement of ads in the industry today not only damages the reputation of a business, but also reduces conversion as users of these websites are unlikely to be paying customers to the business. As a platform that protects brands, Thrive will be a premium ad marketplace for businesses that prefer quality over quantity.

At first, Thrive will issue its own token, THRT, as an ERC20 token running on top of the Ethereum blockchain. Eventually, once development is finished, the project will release its own proprietary blockchain capable of executing smart contracts along with its own cryptocurrency. The THRT token is used to fuel the ecosystem as a form of payment and will be used for rewarding users who review websites, according to the quality and reliability of their reviews. Users can also choose to share their data with advertisers in exchange for THRT.

The main crowdsale for Thrive is taking place March 10, 2018 to April 5, 2018, unless the hard cap of 27,500,000 euros is reached. The hard cap is the upper limit of what the project will accept from investors before the crowdsale closes. During this crowdsale, THRT will cost 0.25 euro. Investors who wish to take part in the crowdsale of a project that aims to bring more transparency to the advertising industry should consider joining this interesting project.

Mark.Space: Next Generation Internet

Mark.Space will bring the next generation of internet by combining it with virtual reality and the blockchain.

With the goal to revolutionize and enhance the experience of the internet, Mark.Space will use blockchain technology to allow users of its platform to create virtual 3D spaces linked to a web address. With blockchain technology, transactions are transparent and immutable, fostering an ecosystem that functions similar to the real world.

Though professional software can be used to design units of space in the virtual world, the platform will allow users to design their units by providing easy-to-use tools. Any browser can be used to access the ecosystem, giving anyone an opportunity to enjoy the unique content on the platform and to buy and design their own unit. Once a unit linked to a web address is bought and designed, the user can post the web address on social media to engage other users and show their creativity. The 3D nature of the Mark.Space platform will take the internet to the next level, giving users novel experiences.

Users will have the ability to buy, sell, and rent units on the platform. Goods and services can also be freely traded on the platform, with the native token, MRK, used as a means of exchange. Given the creativity the platform fosters, artists will find the platform particularly useful. Advertisers can buy or rent spaces to spread awareness of goods and services. Because transactions are transparently and securely made on the blockchain, the ownership of virtual land will not be contested. Additionally, copyrights and trademarks will be enforced on the platform, just as in the real world.

The crowdsale for Mark.Space offering the MRK token at $0.10 ends February 28, 2018. The MRK token is ERC20 compatible and can be stored in popular Ethereum wallets, and traded at exchanges. As the platform grows in use, the MRK token has the potential to increase. No more than three billion MRK tokens will be created, keeping the supply fixed for investors and token holders to avoid dilution of value. Investors who would like to play a role in expanding the possibilities of the internet by applying virtual reality and blockchain technology may find this project highly interesting as an investment.

Coinvest: Decentralized Cryptocurrency Trading

Coinvest aims to be the first decentralized cryptocurrency trading platform.

Seeking to capitalize on the exponential growth of cryptocurrencies in popularity and value, Coinvest aims to build the world’s first truly decentralized cryptocurrency trading platform, with additional features planned for the future to take care of the financial needs of its users.

Essentially, the Coinvest platform allows users to buy and sell popular cryptocurrencies and index funds. The native token of the platform, COIN, provides liquidity and is needed to buy and sell these assets. The conversion from these assets to COIN is fast and frictionless. By allowing investors to gain exposure to cryptocurrencies easily, Coinvest aims to increase mainstream adoption of them and build a thriving community of users.

By employing its native token and smart contracts — contracts that execute automatically when conditions set by two parties are met — costs and complexity are eliminated. Rather than using brokers to execute or facilitate trades, the smart contracts create an immutable record on the blockchain that is instant and trustless. By eliminating third parties and processing transactions with its unique software protocol, substantial savings are passed on to users of the platform.

The Coinvest crypto exchange is decentralized and transparent.

As a decentralized platform, Coinvest does not accept or manage any funds. Funds deposited by customers are held in escrow and made available using smart contracts, thus requiring no human intervention. The lack of intermediaries involved in these transactions will prevent fraud and malfeasance.

To incentivize use of the platform, traders will earn COIN based on their volume of trading. For every 10 trades, users will receive COIN equivalent to the value of one trade. Users of the platform can also earn COIN by allowing others to mimic their trading, known as copy-trading.

Eventually, Coinvest will allow users to have their own debit card for purchasing goods and services globally. The platform will also provide margin, futures, and options trading. By providing a wide range of financial services, Coinvest can potentially become a very disruptive force in global finance.

The ICO for Coinvest will begin February 16 and is scheduled to end March 16, 2018, if the hard cap of $30 million is not met. In total, 107 million COIN will be minted. The COIN token is ERC20 compliant and runs on top of the Ethereum protocol.

Credits: Next-Generation Blockchain

The Credits blockchain is designed for finance and IoT.

Seeking to overcome the scalability issues plaguing current blockchains such as bitcoin and Ethereum, Credits was developed to accommodate the needs of data-intensive industries such as finance and emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT).

As blockchains have become more widely adopted due to their decentralized and trustless nature, they have become congested, giving miners extra leverage in deciding which transactions to validate, thus raising the costs. The rising costs of transactions has hindered their rate of adoption in the business world, preventing industries from being as efficient as they potentially can. Additionally, the mining power required to validate these networks has become substantial an increasing concern among environmentalists and regulators. By contrast, the Credits blockchain is designed with no mining required, with the coins of the blockchain created during and at the end of the ICO. Commissions for validating transactions on the Credits blockchain are exchanged between the main and trusted nodes.

The technical advantages of the Credits blockchain over competitors are notable. Whereas bitcoin can only process seven transactions and Ethereum just 300 per second, Credits can process more than one million with an aim of 10 million with future upgrades. Moreover, whereas bitcoin transactions can take as long as 10 minutes or more and Ethereum 30 seconds to five minutes, Credits transactions take as little as 0.01 seconds. For businesses that require very fast and numerous transactions, particularly in finance, the Credits blockchain is more practical to use and will save them large sums of money in the long run.

Like Ethereum, the Credits blockchain can execute smart contracts, which are self-executing contracts that execute when two parties have met the conditions set by the counterparty. Smart contracts can save businesses from the costs of using intermediaries such as bankers, brokers, and notaries. They also resolve the issue of mistrust due to the possibility of fraud, since the transactions can only take place when both parties are satisfied.

Like bitcoin and Ethereum, the Credits blockchain is decentralized, distributed, and open-source. As an open-source project, its code can be verified to ensure its security and the absense of malware. Moreover, Credits has already developed a minimally viable product (MVP), and plans to release its Alpha version in the first quarter of 2018.

A noteworthy advantage of the Credits blockchain over competing blockchains is in the cost of transactions. Whereas bitcoin transactions can cost $10 or more and Ethereum transactions $0.10 or more, depending on network activity, Credits transactions can cost as low as $0.001. Combined with its speed, low transaction fees make it ideal for finance and IoT.

The Credits ICO begins February 15, 2018 and ends February 28, 2018. The soft cap for the ICO is $15,000,000 and the hard cap is $20,000,000. During the ICO, one ETH can buy 5,000 CS tokens. The funds raised during the ICO will be used for marketing and software development. The Credits team reached the $3 million hard cap during the presale, showing just how eager the ICO market is to embrace blockchains that offer innovative new features. Investors who are interested in a next-generation blockchain with capabilities beyond the current blockchains should thus seriously consider this promising project.

BABB: Banking for Everyone

BABB will bring banking to everyone.

Using blockchain technology, Bank Account Based Blockchain, or BABB, aims to empower people from all over the world by providing financial services that are accessible with smartphones. By bringing financial inclusion globally, including to those who are ignored by the current financial system, BABB aims to improve the quality of life and living standards for everyone.

To provide financial services complying with UK regulations to anyone in the world, BABB will simply require a valid ID document such as a passport or national ID card, or a reference from a user already verified. BABB also intends to allow those without documentation to use its platform using biometric technology.

As stated in the whitepaper, BABB intends to seamlessly integrate traditional banking with cryptocurrencies. BABB accounts will have an associated IBAN number for international bank wires, and will have an account number for UK transactions.  By providing these features, BABB will allow users to transfer money to and from the platform, effectively bridging the gap between traditional finance and cryptocurrencies.

Also key to bringing financial inclusion globally, BABB will offer a mobile app that anyone with a smartphone can download and use. Using its mobile app, users can transfer money into and out of their accounts and conduct peer to peer transactions. Additionally, users can potentially earn an income with the app by issuing loans or exchanging currencies.

Bank Account Based Blockchain will bring financial inclusion globally.

As part of its aim to integrate traditional finance with cryptocurrencies, BABB will offer a black card that can be used as a debit card to make real-world purchases. It will have the added functionality of using a QR or NFC code to link it to the cardmember’s BABB bank account. As the card gets used, funds are immediately taken from the cardmember’s linked bank account. The black card will be safer than traditional debit or credit cards because they will not store personally identifiable information and can easily be unliked to the cardmember’s account.

The native token of the BABB platform, BAX, will be used for paying fees and transactions on the platform and can be exchanged with other tokens and cryptocurrencies on major exchanges. A total of 50 billion BAX will be minted, a portion of which will be held as reserved to ensure the liquidity of the platform. Investors interested in participating in the upcoming crowdsale can sign up to be whitelisted on the BABB website.

Thus far, investors have greeted the project with enthusiasm, as shown by the project reaching its hard cap during the presale this month. Investors who have remained on the sidelines will thus have another chance at jumping into this fascinating project very soon.

Hero: Bringing Financial Inclusion

Hero will bring financial inclusion to the unbanked and underbanked.

To bring financial inclusion to the developing world and Southeast Asia in particular, the team behind Hero is launching a crowdsale to raise funds to build its platform based on the blockchain. As one of the first movers in the cryptocurrency space aiming to democratize finance and cryptocurrencies, Hero is likely to capture a large market share once its roadmap is fulfilled.

As stated in the Hero Bitcoin ANN thread, roughly two billion people, or 40 percent of the world’s population, lack access to basic banking and financial resources, preventing them from obtaining credit and loans for such basic things as starting a business, going to school, and getting an auto loan.  The high barriers to entry within the current global financial system have created a wide divide between the haves and have-nots. Using blockchain technology and mobile devices, Hero aims to provide the essential services that this unserved and underserved population currently lacks, and in so doing can potentially revive developing economies and bridge the global divide in living standards.

Specifically, the Hero team will create the Hero Capital Market Platform, using smart contracts on the blockchain, to provide access to various financial services such as payment processing and loans. The native token of the platform,  Hero, will provide access to the financial services on the platform, and, as an ERC20 compatible token, can be stored in popular Ethereum wallets.

Hero will allow users to have secure access to the Hero Capital Market Platform using their mobile phones. Given the widespread use and capabilities of smart phones today, especially in the Third World, users will not have to go to a physical bank to obtain needed financial services. Given the security, transparency, and immutability of the blockchain, users can feel confident about using the platform.

The main crowdsale will begin February 1, 2018 and end February 28, 2018. Showing the enthusiasm investors have had for this project, over $10 million was collected in just 24 hours during the presale that began in November 2017. The hard cap for the project is 250,000 ETH, with unsold tokens to be burned at the conclusion of the crowdsale. By participating in the crowdsale and buying Hero tokens, investors will help bring needed financial services to much of the world, and likely gain profit along the way.

Crypterium: The Revolutionary Cryptobank

Crypterium Cryptobank is the best cryptocurrency exchange app.

Crypterium has emerged as a promising project seeking to revolutionize finance and banking by establishing a liquid cryptocurrency exchange. Currently, the ICO of the project has raised over $30 million, showing the confidence investors have in the project and giving it the resources needed to reach its lofty goals.

Crypterium aims to fill the void of services that are able to convert cryptocurrencies to fiat currencies. According to the Crypterium whitepaper, by 2022 cryptocurrencies could equal about 10 percent of the global GDP, and have already passed the point of no return. By offering cryptocurrency holders more liquidity and options for converting their cryptocurrencies to fiat, Crypterium aims to tap into this enormous market as among the first-movers. Crypterium aims to provide the conversion of cryptocurrencies to fiat currencies cheaply, quickly, and easily.

The Crypterium app is user-friendly.

To attract cryptocurrency users and the mainstream to its platform, Crypterium will offer a user-friendly app, Crypterium Cryptobank, for Android and iOS users. Using the app, users will be able to exchange cryptocurrencies with one another and fiat currencies instantly, and buy goods and services from millions of merchants throughout the world. The Crypterium Cryptobank will allow access to these merchants with low fees and without transaction limits.

To provide liquidity to the platform, Crypterium will issue its own token, CRPT, to function as a currency within its ecosystem. The CRPT token will allow access to the Cryptobank. Each time a user spends using the Cryptobank, a CRPT amount equal to 0.5 percent of the transaction will be burned in the user’s account. This fee will be completely transparent to users of the platform. Active users who own CRPT and spend it will be allotted a monthly reward depending on the revenues generated by the platform.

The token crowdsale that started on October 31, 2017, will last until January 18, 2018. Each CRPT will be valued at 0.0001 BTC during the crowdsale, with bonuses available to investors depending on how early in the crowdsale they buy CRPT. For the crowdsale, the soft cap is $3 million and the hard cap is $47 million. In total, no kore than 300 million CRPT will be minted, keeping the supply limited and the value up for investors. The funds raised during the crowdsale will help cover the development and marketing expenses of the project.

HydroMiner: Green Mining in the Alps

HydroMiner will issue the H2O token.

A new cryptocurrency project, HydroMiner, intends to use hydroelectric power from the European Alps to mine cryptocurrencies cheaply, and will issue its own token, H2O, which can be used to purchase contracts within the project. The company is based in Vienna, Austria, where hydroelectric power is relatively cheap.

Given the growing costs and energy required to mine bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, there have been concerns in the cryptocurrency community regarding the cost to the environment of mining cryptocurrencies and maintaining their networks. HydroMiner is one potential solution to this problem, given that generating electricity from water is up to 85 percent cheaper than the average cost in Europe and leaves no carbon footprint. The company sees renewable energy as an effective way to adapt to the increasing costs and centralization of mining operations, and plans to scale its operations using hydroelectric power.

HydroMiner will decide which cryptocurrencies to mine based on software algorithms that will help the company determine which ones are the most profitable. The company is selective about the mining pools it joins, taking into account payouts, liquidity, and other factors.

HydroMiner allows H2O token holders to mine cryptocurrencies profitably.

The company will use sea freight containers to store the mining equipment and keep it cooled. These containers can easily be assembled and moved where needed. A portion of the funds derived from the initial coin offering (ICO) will be used to purchase these containers. The company has its own unique method of keeping the containers cool, which saves space and increases their capacity.

Currently, the company rents two hydroelectric plants in Austria, and will use investor funds to expand their operations to other locations. Given that the company believes in transparency, investors are invited to visit the Austrian Alps to stop by and take a tour of the hydroelectric plants used by the company.

The company will allow owners of H2O tokens to use them to purchase mining time or packages. Among the packages to be offered are bitcoin, Ethereum, Zcash, and baskets of altcoins. Should the profitability of a package decrease substantially, HydroMiner will provide alternatives based on profitability. To receive payouts, H2O owners must register on the website and set up a web wallet. H2O token holders will receive net proceeds minus costs to maintain mining operations.

In total, 100,000,000 H2O tokens will be minted, with a nominal value of 0.01 ETH (Ether). The H2O token is ERC20 compatible, which will allow it to be stored in many Ethereum wallets. The ICO will take place from October 18 to November 15, 2017.

Centra Card for Cryptocurrencies

The Centra debit card is convenient for cryptocurrency owners.

While bitcoin and cryptocurrency enthusiasts generally have felt frustrated at times trying to cash their digital currency, one company, Centra, now aims to provide a debit card card that will allow cryptocurrency holders to spend their digital currency with ease with the Centra Card.

With this innovative idea of facilitating cryptocurrency transactions, the ICO of Centra has been met with enthusiasm from investors, who so far have poured in millions of dollars for a stake in the project. The Centra Card got added publicity when it was promoted by retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, who is an official ambassador of the card.

Currently, the Centra Card allows holders of bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, DASH, Monero, Zcash, Ripple, and ERC20 compatible cards to use their cryptocurrencies for spending with the card, and more coins are expected to be added to the list. Cardholders will also be able to use the Centra Card wherever Visa and MasterCard are accepted, which means the card can be used internationally and at millions of merchant locations worldwide. This card will bring extra convenience to travelers, given its international acceptance.

The Centra Card is accepted by millions of merchants.

For the peace of mind of customers, the Centra Card will be insured against theft. Cryptocurrencies have been susceptible to hacking, with exchanges and other companies dealing in them becoming primary targets. Additionally, the insurance will cover internal theft in case of a rogue employee of the company. Security will be a top priority for Centra Card.

Customers who use the Centra Card will be able to convert their cryptocurrencies to fiat currencies at zero cost. This will spur added interest in the program, given that most cryptocurrency exchanges charge exorbitant fees due to lack of competition and regulation. As more people migrate to using cryptocurrencies, Centra Card will be able to capture a large number of these customers. Additionally, Centra will create cBay, a marketplace that will offer discounts to cryptocurrency owners, and which will offer over 100,000 items of various categories, with plans to expand its inventory.

The Centra Card app will allow customers to view their account information on mobile devices. They will be able to see how much cryptocurrencies they own, their value in fiat currency, as well as their transaction history. Customers will thus be able to monitor their account activity and feel assured that their assets are safe and secure.
