Become an Investor of Private Companies with Blockchain Powered OnPlace Inc. Platform

Bitcoin Press Release: OnPlace Inc. uses blockchain technology to present platform users with investment opportunities in private companies, announces successful crowdfunding.

May 23, 2017, Delaware, USA – The United States registered blockchain-based investment platform, OnPlace Inc., takes pleasure to announce that it has surpassed its equity crowdfunding target. Following the successful fundraising, the investment platform now enables users to invest safely in private companies across the globe.

Through the recent equity crowdfunding campaign held in the United States, OnPlace Inc. raised 101% of the earmarked value. Now, it is looking forward to collaborating with new investors over both of its investment platforms.

The OnPlace Ecosystem

OnPlace is a combination of two separate FinTech investment platforms, one for private investments and other for traditional equity crowdfunding. The primary platform, investments.onplace.io focuses on special private investments with significant growth potential. It differentiates itself from other competitor sites like ‘EquityZen’ by providing investor pool protection through due diligence and investigation of all the companies made available for investments.

OnPlace combine three of the biggest markets; North America, China, and India in one. The platform scans through all the aforementioned markets to pick companies that offer high growth investment opportunities. Once the companies are listed and made available on the platform, OnPlace users can start investing as less as US$ 500 to build their portfolio. Other similar platforms in the segment have a minimum investment threshold, which goes as high as US$20,000.

The second platform in OnPlace Ecosystem is the traditional equity crowdfunding platform which occupies a market segment with significantly less competition. An equity crowdfunding platform is a valuable tool for both small businesses/entrepreneurs and investors of all sizes to raise and invest money respectively.

OnPlace COO and Director of Communications, Michael Gorden stated,

“We are basically pioneers; we have everything that it takes to become the largest player in the Russian market. We will have a secondary market within our investors’ network. We will have optional insurance for the investments on certain projects.”

OnPlace sees the use of blockchain technology as the quickest, most efficient and convenient way to facilitate investments, thanks to fast transactions and low fee structures they offer. This area of investment has particularly witnessed growth in the Asian region, especially China.

OnPlace has had a long, successful experience with Chinese partners and given their interest in cryptocurrency technology; the platform understands that the use of blockchain-based solution will positively influence their cooperation and involvement in the initiative. Now, the platform hopes to achieve similar levels of collaboration and enthusiasm among the European and American investment communities.

Complacent Investment Strategy

OnPlace’s investment strategy involves a rating system, which ranks investment opportunities to assess potential risks by comparing key metrics of current values and changes over a period. These combined factors include revenue, loss, business product/service users, existing similar entities, the strength and density of competition in the industry, previous funding rounds and total investments raised from different investors to date.

OnPlace’s Equity Crowdfunding Platform has a commission-based revenue generation system in place where anywhere between 5% to 10% of the successfully raised amount, inclusive of the fees for providing profile building support is collected from the borrowers. Similarly, the commissions on its investment platform are comprised of two slabs. The first one, 10% of investment amount for entrance and due diligence process. And the second one, involving a 20% performance fees on net profits of the campaign.

The platform is soon announcing its ICO, where cryptocurrency community members and investors can purchase OPL tokens against ETH contribution. The platform has set a finite number of 10,000,000 OPL tokens, each sold at the value of $0.30 (30 cents) equivalent in ETH. The funds raised by OnPlace will be used to purchase stocks in leading businesses, creating a diversified investment portfolio. More information about the platform’s vision and roadmap is available on the OnPlace whitepaper.

Status.im Announces $25,000 Virtual Hackathon and an Experimental API

Blockchain Press Release: Ethereum mobile client, Status announces $25,000 Virtual Hackathon, invite community to develop apps using its experimental API

Zug, Switzerland, 22 May 2017 – Status, the first ever mobile Ethereum client built entirely on peer-to-peer technologies, announced today the launch of its experimental API and week-long Virtual Hackathon scheduled to begin June 3rd.

Status is an open source messaging platform and mobile browser for the Ethereum Network. Designed for non-technical users, Status serves as a mobile gateway to begin using digital currency and interacting with decentralized applications, known as DApps. Unlike smartphone apps today, DApps run on peer-to-peer protocols, rather than through centralized servers.

The Co-Founder of Status, Carl Bennetts said,

“We’re still in alpha, but the Hackathon will be a fun way to gather feedback and identify bugs given the API is still highly experimental. The launch of the Status API will eventually allow developers to integrate their existing decentralized applications more tightly with Status’ user interface, and also create decentralized chatbots.”

Along with the release of the API, Status is announcing a week-long virtual hackathon. Teams and individuals from around the world will compete for a $25,000 total prize pool, including a $10,000 first prize, to make their DApps mobile-compatible, or experiment with the Status API.

The Hackathon kicks off on June 3rd, 2017, and is open to both individuals and teams from anywhere in the world. The following submissions are eligible:

  • Making your existing desktop web-DApp mobile compatible.
  • Creating a decentralized chatbot using the Status API.
  • Extending Status with new API commands.

For more information, see the official posting: https://hackathon.status.im
Winners will be announced June 13th.

About Status.im

Status is an open source messaging platform and mobile browser for the Ethereum Network.

DNotes Prepares to Introduce DNotes 2.0 Upgrade, Launches New Bitcointalk Forum

DNotes Prepares to Introduce DNotes 2.0 Upgrade, Launches New Bitcointalk Forum

Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain platform, DNotes announces the launch of its Bitcointalk Forum, new software upgrades to follow soon.

May 22, 2017, Chicago, IL – DNotes has announced that its upcoming DNotes 2.0 upgrade will include innovative features and applications relating to smart contracts, blockchain technologies, mobile applications, and global payments systems. The upgrade is expected to launch later in 2017, and the company is unveiling a new Bitcointalk Forum in preparation for the event.

According to DNotes Co-Founder, Alan Yong, his team began expanding the company’s focus to include innovative technological development roughly one year ago. As Yong explains:

“The technology in our industry was primitive when we first entered – with many unresolved problems and uncertainty about consumer preferences. As a result, we spent our first three years positioning ourselves for success by building our core infrastructure and supporting business ecosystem while the industry matured, as we waited for the optimal time to build on the code-base that blockchain technology offers. That time is now, and the DNotes team is totally committed to promoting our industry through technological leadership that will pave the way to mass acceptance of peer-to-peer digital cash in global commerce.”

The DNotes 2.0 platform will represent a significant upgrade from DNotes as it now exists. After extensive research and consideration, the DNotes team decided to switch from Proof-Of-Work (POW) to Proof-Of-Stake (POS). The new blockchain system will be accompanied by positive changes in the company’s CRISP program, and will reward stakeholders monthly with an annual target of approximately 2% on balances held in qualified accounts for 30 days or more to encourage long-term investment and savings.

There will be an additional stake reward, with a target of 2% annually, paid to stakeholders who participate in “staking” to support the network. The new reward system will be the backbone of the new CRISP 2.0 savings plans.

The upgrade to DNotes 2.0 will also involve a one-for-one (1:1) coin swap, with details about that swap to be announced closer to the upgrade’s launch. The DNotesVault will have a major role to play in simplifying the conversion process, according to Yong. The launch of the company’s new Bitcointalk Forum is designed to enable DNotes to reach out to as many of its stakeholders as possible, while also inviting the public to join in the conversation.

One of the most critical choices the company has made is the decision to develop its platform on C#, rather than the C++ Bitcoin Core source code. Yong describes the decision as the direct result of his belief that mass acceptance of digital currency can only be attained by focusing on businesses and other consumers. As he notes,

“We are committed to a vision of 100% conversion to C# – giving us the advantage of knowing our own technologies and applications intimately well. This will put us in a position of great technological leadership, particularly when it comes to the blockchain and smart contract applications that are currently in great demand. C# is popular in the corporate environment, and is easier to develop and maintain when compared to the traditional C++ Bitcoin Core source code. It is expected that C# architecture will become a more popular platform in the future. Stratis is one such coin that has active development on C#, and we appreciate their leadership and contributions to our industry.”

DNotes has a history of taking a different path than most other digital currency offerings. The company has been vocal about its founders’ desire to build a trusted digital currency that is accessible to people of all walks of life, with an ease-of-use that encourages its widespread acceptance.

The company’s strategic planning has created an ecosystem made up of many innovative building blocks. Those building blocks include CryptoMoms – a currency neutral site dedicated to encouraging female participation; DNotesVault – a free secure storage for DNotes’ stakeholders with 100% of its deposits guaranteed with verifiable funds; DCEBrief – a news and information media outlet that delivers news on the latest developments in the world of digital currency; and CRISPs – a family of Cryptocurrency Investment Savings Plans for people around the globe. CRISP’s core mission is to make the savings opportunity available to everyone. Yong believes that access to savings opportunities can bring greater financial freedom to millions.

In addition, Mr. Yong has written a business book, “Improve Your Odds – The Four Pillars of Business Success”, which is designed to help any entrepreneur looking to maximize his or her chance of business success by employing proven business principles.

Today, DNotes is already well-entrenched in innovative technology development designed to contribute to rapid growth in the cryptocurrency industry. According to Yong, the company’s commitment to develop on C# will allow it to be the most innovative, responsive, and efficient in serving increasing demand from businesses and consumers alike.

The Force Behind NEM’s Rise, EcoBit Green Project Announces ICO

The Force Behind NEM’s Rise, EcoBit Green Project Announces ICO

Bitcoin Press Release: EcoBit, NEM-based “green project” drives the cryptocurrency’s demand and price upwards.

May 18, 2017, Selangor, Malaysia – NEM is one of the fastest growing distributed ledger technology platform, powered by XEM cryptocurrency has registered an increase in its value and trading volumes in the recent days. The sudden growth was fueled by its partnership with EcoBit, a green project supported by the Kelantan State Government in Malaysia.

The drastic growth in demand for the out-of-the-box blockchain solution and its underlying XEM tokens during this year started with a Tweet showcasing the platform’s collaboration with EcoBit project and its Blockchain Card. EcoBit Blockchain Card is the first ever implementation of blockchain on a smart card with NEM technology that enables transaction of EcoBits tokens.

“XEM has approximately registered a 1924% growth in its price since the beginning of 2017.”

– EcoBit Team

The correlation between the EcoBit events and spikes in XEM prices was analyzed by Diario Bitcoin, a leading Spanish cryptocurrency news outlet with a huge readership and social media following that exceeds 18000 users. The XEM price chart shows a strong bullish trend line corresponding to the events. A closer look at the graph shows an approximate 154% increase in NEM prices from $0.0037 to $0.0094 between January and March 11, 2017, which signifies the phase two launch of the EcoBit project.

EcoBit NEM price chart

Approximately a month after, XEM experienced another significant climb to reach $0.0247 per token; moving an entire decimal point in a short span of time, which aligned with the launch of EcoBit website and ICO. In the month that followed, XEM price witnessed another shift in the decimal point to cross $0.1276 (as on May 14, 2017).

Following the ICO, EcoBit and its green initiative has gained a lot of popularity among community members, some of whom from Japan have also created EcoBit themed superhero cards.

What is EcoBit?

EcoBit is a green and sustainable lifestyle movement, developed in partnership with the Kelantan State Government in Malaysia. The EcoBit project pledges to manage one million acres of tropical rainforest in the region for the next 30 years. Its mission and accompanying eco-friendly projects will be financed through carbon credits and an ongoing ICO. The first of a kind “green project” ICO has already raised over $1 million in less than ten days. Open till June 8, 2017, EcoBit invites participants to continue contributing towards its sustainable environmental movement.

With NEM blockchain technology, the company creates a public supply chain for all produce created through its green projects on Carey Island. Through blockchain implementation, EcoBit focuses on transparency, immutability, and accountability, ensuring that people know exactly what they are buying, where it is coming from and under what ethical circumstances.

The EcoBit tokens can be traded like any other cryptocurrencies on exchange platforms once the ICO comes to an end. Explaining the difference between EcoBit and other blockchain projects, the CEO of Climate Protector/EcoBit Mr. Tang Too Siah said,

“Unlike many other cryptocurrency projects, EcoBit is backed by real world needs and assets. Within 12 months’ time, we will become an industry leader, and many people will start to question which cryptocurrency is backed by real projects?”

Already five months in the making, EcoBit secured the project to manage and maintain a million acres of tropical rainforest from the government on January 9, 2017. As a part of the project, the platform is responsible for protecting the area from illegal activities, reduce CO2 emissions and increase carbon stocks for trading purposes through the REDD/REDD+ Carbon Trading/Offset Market. The one million acres of forest land is also the home for world’s second oldest rainforest located in Kelantan.

In the second phase, sustainable projects will be implemented at the EcoBit Sanctuary Asia, located on Carey Island. These projects will involve setting up of spirulina farms, aquaponics farms, organic vegetables, free-range chicken, coconut plantations and eco-tourism projects to bolster greener thinking and education (subject to each project milestone being fulfilled). The following third phase will see an expansion of these sanctuaries to the Europe, United States, China, Australia and other regions across the globe.

The use of self-sustaining NEM blockchain-based smart contracts enables projects to manage and monetize natural resources to reduce carbon emissions ethically. It also creates a transparent, immutable digital supply chain ledger that allows anyone to track and monitor the carbon credits/impact, project’s yields (agricultural produce) and the movement of products from the origin to supermarket shelves. Through the ledger, consumers can be assured of the organic nature and ethical handling of food produce. The recently introduced EcoBit Blockchain Card can be used by members to “earn” EcoBit tokens via recycling program and “pay” merchants for their goods and services.

The ongoing ICO offers an attractive, once in a lifetime opportunity for investors interest in not only cryptocurrency revolution but environmental consciousness to contribute towards and eco-friendly blockchain-based project, fighting global warming and climate change in the process.

About EcoBit

EcoBit is the latest in crypto credit offered to the general public which has its foundation built on a sustainable program to reduce carbon footprints on planet earth. The green project is taking charge in the fight to make the world a safe and healthier place for all to live in.
