Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,

Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before

Lifestyles of the Poor & Famous

On January 29, 1845, Edgar Allan Poe became an overnight sensation with the New York Evening Mirror’s publication of a poem that still thrills and haunts readers, listeners, and viewers to this day.

Despite the overwhelming popularity of The Raven, it netted Poe a total of $24; over half of that amount was charity that he received for what may have been a draft. Adjusted for inflation, his literary masterpiece netted him a total $754.91 in 2018.

To put this in a contemporary context, think about an international chart-topping single, say Taylor Swift’s Shake it Off. It’s hard to imagine Ms. Swift selling that track, rights and all, to a record label for a little over $750.

The Raven went viral, first in the US, then in Europe. It has become so deeply ingrained in contemporary culture that we’re still reciting, remixing, and reimagining it in various media to this day.

Poe’s exquisitely crafted poem may have won him recognition, but his writing failed to earn him superstar riches. Poe’s lifetime earnings for 20 years’ worth of poetry, prose, and non-fiction amounted to $6,200, or $195,018 adjusted for inflation.

That’s about $9,750 per year – probably the sum that Taylor Swift makes as she sings Shake it Off at one of her shows. That may be stretching the truth, but not by much.

Unjust rewards – Nevermore!

The writer’s financial distress had a profound effect on Austrian producer and composer David Brandstaetter. “Poe’s work, especially The Raven and Annabel Lee, has always inspired me,” says David, “He not only wrote some of the most famous poems of all time, he also established the foundations of the detective story and science fiction!”

David was shocked when he first learned about the pittance the writer received for The Raven. It got him thinking about the hurdles that many of today’s creatives must overcome in order to earn a living, such as copyright infringement and fair payment.

Experience as a sound designer at Rockstar Games Vienna and as a producer at Sony DADC gave David a deep understanding of the wants and needs not only of content creators, but also of creative teams, project managers, and consumers. It became clear to him that the digital content industry needed a platform that facilitated the production and distribution processes.

Qravity’s Rainbow

In February 2016, David founded Qravity to help bring original content to market. Soon, a working version of the Qravity platform was ready for testing. “In July 2017, we had a unique collaboration and communication tool for creative teams,” says David, “Qravity also tracks tasks in such a way that creative members receive stakes in the content they help make. For example, a person who writes lyrics for a song gets a share, say five percent, of the song’s revenue. Every time someone buys that song, the lyricist gets five percent of that payment.”

Qravity needed a secure and transparent means of keeping this process equitable. There was also the matter of protecting copyright and preventing piracy. “I was speaking with my friend and business partner Sascha Dennstedt [Qravity’s Co-Founder and CFO] about Poe and how, in some ways, little has changed financially for artists,” says David, “He said that we should integrate blockchain into Qravity. Some research convinced me that this made perfect sense.”

Using smart contracts, Qravity provides creatives with immutable and transparent records of their stakes in the projects they help complete. They receive these records in the form of digital tokens called QPT. Based on the amount of QPT they hold, Qravity sends creators a share of revenue earned whenever the content they helped make is purchased. They receive these payments in the form of Qravity’s cryptocurrency, QCO.

So if our lyricist has a five percent stake in the song he penned, a 1 QCO song earns him 0.05 QCO, which he can then trade on crypto exchanges, or spend in the Qravity marketplace.

Decentralization for Fair Payment

“[The Raven] will stick to the memory of everybody who reads it.”

Nathaniel Parker Willis, Editor, Evening Mirror

The creation of art that transcends cultures and achieves a sort of immortality is one of the greatest achievements to which one can aspire. But such greatness does not pay the bills.

Qravity’s decentralized content production and distribution platform is on the verge of helping creators own and profit from their work. In doing so, it aims to stimulate the continuous creation and consumption of premium digital content – forevermore.

Bitcoin meetups are probably the most iconic social activity that cryptocurrency enthusiasts engage in – apart from epic Twitter and Reddit battles. These gatherings of likeminded enthusiasts bring thousands of people together around the world. Their power to attract people transcends borders so much that enthusiasts actually look for these meetups when they fly abroad. Bitcoin and cryptocurrency fans in many cases would rather check the local crypto scene out than go into a museum or go on a guided tour of the city they are travelling to. Vertex knows this, and as a project that is deeply rooted in this sense of camaraderie and community that transcends borders, it decided to launch it very own Bitcoin meetup competition: the Battle of the Meetups!

Battle of the Meetups Sponsored by Vertex

The Battle of the Meetups is simple. Vertex will go through all the Bitcoin meetups registered on meetup.com and will proceed to do the following: 

  • Select 25 meetups to sponsor.
  • Sponsor those meetups throughout a period of 5 months.
  • Give the selected meetups a list of criteria that Vertex will use to select the top 2 meetups over this period.
  • Proceed to give the two winners an amazing prize.

Criteria to Participate in the Battle of the Meetups

The criteria that Vertex established to determine the winner in this Battle of the Meetups is also quite simple. There are 4 vectors along which meetups can score points every time they meet. At the end, a final tally will determine the 2 winners. The following is the point system:

  • The meetup that accumulates the most Facebook likes since the start of the Battle of the Meetups until the end, will be awarded 3 points. The meetup with the second most likes will get 2 points and the meetup that comes in third will accumulate 1 point.
  • Vertex retweets after every meetup will yield 3 points for the meetup that retweets the most, 2 points for the runner up and 1 point for third place.
  • The meetup that brings Vertex the most Telegram introductions will get 3 points, with the second place getting 2 points and the third place getting 1 point.
  • Attendance will allow meetups to compete on how many people they attract each time. Meetups that attract 600 participants or more, will get 3 points each time. Those that gather 400 participants at least will be rewarded with 2 points and those that bring more than 200 participants will gather 1 point.

The Prize!

After accumulating all these points over a period of 5 months, the Meetup organizers who win will be able to join Vertex at the Vegas Blockchain Conference in October. The winners will be announced at the Berlin Blockshow. The competition starts on June 11th and it will come to a close by the end of October 2018.

Can my Meetup Participate in the Battle of the Meetups?

To see if your meetup qualifies for the Battle of the Meetups, just make sure it complies with the following:

  • It has 500 members.
  • At least 30 members attended the last meetup.
  • There is at least one meetup every 2 months.

To register, just send an email to marketing@vertex.market. Let the Battle of the Meetups begin!

Food and Drinks are Always Welcome, but what is Vertex exactly?

Vertex is a platform that invests in ICOs. It does so at an early stage, bringing the principles of disciplined investment, funds and a proven methodology to select the strongest projects to the cryptocurrency space. The platform is headed by a team of seasoned investors that have managed multi-billion dollar companies and investments around the world. Platform users will be able to buy tokens from the most promising, vetted ICOs out there through the platform directly at a discount.

The diversification of approaches within the blockchain sphere is impressive. With each passing day we are witnessing how distributed ledgers can capture the imagination of people and industries in every corner of our economy. Having already disrupted the sectors of finance and banking, blockchain will soon become a game-changer across a variety of vital industries including healthcare, trading and education. The latter, education, is historically a slow adopter of new technology. The great amount of siloed data makes for a poor experience for both teachers and students.

Do you remember forever looking for the long-lost exam certificates or sheets with your homework?  Of course you do. Now blockchain provides a solution, creating a digital chain of locked-in data which is available remotely, 24/7.

Pilot implementations have already taken place in some institutions within the education system. For instance, Massachusetts Institute of Technology has issued 100 digital diplomas to graduates in the mid-autumn. In addition, Sony has also claimed it is developing an educational service which would use blockchain to secure student records.

Nevertheless, blockchain has far more processes to disrupt than just data storage. A newcomer to the club of blockchain-based projects, Tutellus proves blockchain can also solve issues relating to students’ motivation. Tutellus recently announced the launch of its blockchain-enabled EdTech platform which would use distributed ledger technology as the linchpin for the foundation of a new reward system for both students and teachers.  This first-of-its-kind system of incentives, built by Tutellus developers, will allow all users to get rewarded directly according to the value they provide to the community.

Roadmap

The Tutellus platform is not started from scratch. Before deciding to turn towards a decentralized approach, the Tutellus platform had been operating since May 2013. It has a base of 1 million loyal students, 130 000 video courses, and 3000 teachers so far. Tutellus has also partnered with over 80 universities and business schools for the distribution of unique content, as well as four joint ventures for the issuance of university degrees with exclusive content.

“Over the last four years of steady growth we enabled over two million transactions within the platform, representing USD $10 million. In addition, we have so far invested 1.5 million USD in platform development, defining the target market and our value proposal”, A CEO of Tutellus Miguel Caballero adds.

The Tutellus ecosystem provides two kinds of NEM blockchain-based cryptocurrencies for its users: TUT token and Smart TUT (STUT) token. The former, TUT token, is designed for clients to be able to purchase services and video courses on the platform. The students’ relevance and rating will be measured in STUT (Smart TUT) tokens.

Having partnered with Cryptonomos, Tutellus will launch its initial coin offering (ICO) in mid-May, 2018. A pre-sale of TUT tokens begins on May 10. During this period, Tutellus will provide users with a 20% bonus; the minimum purchase amount is 5 ETH.

A public token sale begins on June 12, 2018 and will remain until either July 12 or the hardcap of $40 million is reached.

Details of the Token Sale

  1. Exchange rate: 1 ETH = 15 000 TUT;
  2. contribution: 0.05 ETH;
  3. Acceptable means of payment: ETH, BTC, XEM, LTC, BCH, ZCASH, DASH.
  4. Bonuses for early birds: up to 10%.

Tutellus also offers special bonuses for large investors that are discussed individually with every purchaser.

Tutellus plans to allocate the funds to product and engineering (40%), sales and marketing (20%), publicity and PR (20%), operations (10%), security, loyalty and reserves (10%).

DISCLAIMER: TUT public sale will not be open to citizens, residents or green card holders of the USA (including Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, and any other protectorate of the USA) or other representatives of the USA.

EQUI Capital – the hands behind EQUI Platform, a new Blockchain powered-investment platform – has announced that it has now re-launched with an extended ICO and plans to kick off its Public Pre-Sale on the 15th of May.

The re-launch of the ICO comes after EQUI Capital acquired new partnerships and advisors to expand its vision to accommodate not only technology startups, but further a slew of new asset classes – teasing involvement in “real estate development, to biotech, classic assets and more”.

EQUI Platform leverages Blockchain technology to enable cryptocurrency investors to dip their toes into investment projects such as technology firms, real estate projects, and other opportunities that have previously been the exclusive domain of high net-worth individuals and venture capitalists.

Investment opportunities on the platform are sourced by highly experienced investment professionals from Doug Barrowman’s well established investment group, Knox Group of Companies, who will aggressively target technology advances that address large markets, and further source global real-estate projects and other asset-orientated opportunities.

EQUIToken holders will be able to become accredited investors on the EQUI Platform, and invest in such initiatives using the platform’s native fiat-backed currency EQUIVest (which is pegged to the US Dollar on a 1:1 ratio), which can be received in exchange for EQUITokens. Investors will benefit by receiving a share of generated profits through their EQUIVest holdings, which can later be sold in exchange for EQUITokens or fiat currency.

The EQUI Platform employs smart contracts to store information about various investment opportunities on the Ethereum Blockchain – recording not only capitalisations, project targets, and maturity dates, but further marking participant investments, distributions, transactions, and rewards.

Doug Barrowman, founder and Chairman of the Knox Group of Companies

A re-launched ICO, with renewed confidence.

EQUI Capital first launched in the third quarter of 2017, and succeeded in raising an impressive $7 million USD within days of the project’s private pre-sale, which launched in February this year.

Sensing new opportunity, and after consultation and feedback with both community investors and project advisors, EQUI Capital elected to expand both its ICO and project scope in conjunction with Blockchain and ICO experts to deliver an even deeper offering. The firm’s decision to extend its ICO now offers interested investors with greater chance to participate in the launch of the EQUI Platform.

Leading investment and business figures, too, have come to lend their expertise and voices to the venture. Notably, the project boasts the expertise of Lady Michelle Mone – the Baroness of Mayfair – who is widely respected as one of the United Kingdom’s leading business figures.

Lady Michelle Mone, Baroness of Mayfair OBE

“Over the past 20 years I have had the privilege of working with many entrepreneurs, investors and projects. This has given me the insight to identify truly unique, exciting and globally relevant projects that have the potential to impact industry. Having recently ventured in to the world of Cryptocurrency, my eyes have been opened even further, hence the launch of EQUI, which I really do believe is set to drastically shift the investment landscape. I am honoured to be part of this journey with some incredibly driven and innovative professionals. Watch this space.”, says the Baroness of Mayfair.

The venture has further partnered with leading capital raising agency CoinFabric to assist with the ICO roll-out, as well as Blockchain Advisory, who will work with the team to bridge the gap between the traditional capital era and cryptocurrency.

In an impressive stroke for investors, EQUI Capital’s re-launch arrives with the release of a new website, a one pager, FAQs, an improved team, as well as a new Public Pre-Sale whitelist; and an evolved white paper coming soon. The venture’s MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is slated for beta release this month.

EQUI Capital’s ICO has now been extended until the 30th of June, and the company has now confirmed that its public pre-sale will launch on the 15th of May, and its public crowdsale will accordingly kick off on the 1st of June. Payments are accepted in the form of Ethereum (ETH), or fiat (USD/GBP) via direct wire transfer.

Qurrex, the innovative hybrid cryptocurrency exchange, announced its intentions to integrate Bancor Protocol to provide continuous liquidity for its hybrid D(C)EX platform. 

Bancor Protocol is the standard for the creation of smart tokens with built-in convertibility directly through their smart contracts. A decentralised liquidity network, based in Switzerland, Bancor’s objective is to unlock the expansive amount of user-generated currencies by creating liquidity, allowing any token to be converted to a different cryptocurrency at rates that reflect market value regardless of volume – and outside of traditional exchanges.

Using an innovative token connector method, Bancor completes a formulaic price calculation and continuous liquidity for all integrated tokens, without needing to match the two parties in an exchange. The smart tokens interconnect to form token liquidity networks, allowing user-generated cryptocurrencies to thrive.https://themerkle.com/qurrex-is-leveling-the-playing-field-with-exchanges/

By integrating the Bancor Protocol, Qurrex (QRX) token holders will gain access to continuous liquidity through the Bancor network, regardless of trade volume or exchange listings. This benefits cryptocurrency aficionados as any integrated token can be automatically and directly converted to another. 

At present, there are a range of cryptocurrency tokens that are eligible to be converted into a different currency. These include, ETH, EOS, TRX, GNO (Gnosis), BNB (Binance) and BNT (the Bancor Network Token). With such a broad range of currencies and high demand, Qurrex are confident of creating a large and devoted community of traders – whilst marketing their own QRX token. 

With such an ambitious forecast, and demand driven by a loyal community, it seems only logical for Qurrex to provide users with a straightforward way to convert tokens. By integrating Bancor, Qurrex can offer liquidity to those that wish to be a part of the platform. 

Cryptocurrency traders must initiate the Bancor Protocol to join the Bancor Network. The protocol uses a ‘connector’ method. This uses connected tokens through formulaically-calculated prices – without having to match buyers with sellers. 

Qurrex will activate a Relay Token on the Bancor Network with $200,000 of QRX and $200,000 of BNT within a week following the successful completion of the token sale. Users will be able to buy and sell QRX tokens with any other token in the Bancor Network at a formulaically calculated price. 

With such an ambitious forecast and demand, driven by a loyal community, it seems only logical for Qurrex to provide users with a straightforward way to convert tokens. By integrating Bancor, Qurrex can offer liquidity to those that wish to be a part of the platform. 

As a first-of-its-kind cryptocurrency exchange, Qurrex has already achieved significant investment to support the development of the platform. Encompassing the best features of traditional exchanges and blockchain technologies for brokers and investors, Qurrex has ambitions to become the industry leader. 

Building on its already stellar investment and looking to capitalise on growing industry interest in the business, Qurrex plans to host its Token Generation Event in the winter of 2018, aiming to attract $50,000,000. The event will see ERC20 Tokens offered for sale, with buyers able to make purchases in either Euro of US Dollar. The initial price of a single token will be $1 US. Tokens will not be issued after the TGE, and any undistributed tokens will be disposed of in a correct manner.

AirChain Network, a blockchain powered ecosystem designed especially for the air freight sector, is all set to revolutionize the industry by addressing long standing  problems such as transparency, safety, and flexibility. The platform’s mobile applications are currently available for download via the App Store and Google Play. 

Warsaw, Poland April 16, 2018 

AirChain Network is pleased to announce the official launch of their mobile application via the App Store and Google Play. The company reveals that the beta version of AirChain Network has also gone live recently. This blockchain powered ecosystem has been built by a team of experienced developers and blockchain experts with the intention of making the air freight sector more efficient by bringing transparency, safety, and flexibility. 

The global air transportation industry is a huge sector that plays an important role in people’s lives as well as industries all over the world. However, the constant increase in fuel price in the recent years has led to a situation where the air cargo is often beyond the financial capacity of an average individual, business or enterprise. At present, many companies are also reconsidering the use of air freights because of the rapidly rising security issues. Making things worse, this industry has always lagged behind in terms of transparency and the adoption of innovative technologies. 

AirChain Network has built a simple yet comprehensive ecosystem that provides access to the sophisticated tools and techniques of the freight industry without the stress and price. They are creating business opportunities for the investors by providing them free and direct access to a huge range of offers that were previously available only to the institutional investors. The goal of the network is to help the business and logistic companies deliver goods and services efficiently, while the use of blockchain technology removes duplication, ensures distribution and enforces transparency. The investors and businesses using AirChain Network are able to exchange goods and services for fiat or cryptocurrency in a transparent, tamper proof and immutable distributed ledger.

“Let us assume that Tom is flying from Berlin to Seoul and has 5kg of portable luggage available. Maria, living and working in Berlin, wants to send her friend in Seoul a 5kg gift parcel. If Maria sends her parcel by conventional means of transport, the cost will be quite high and the waiting time will be long. AirChain ecosystem allows Maria and Tom to meet and exchange their needs,” explains a senior spokesperson from AirChain Network.  “Maria’s package arrives at his friend’s place for the best cost, safely and quickly. Tom, on the other hand, earns an income without any effort due to the sale of his empty baggage.” 

The use of the just launched mobile application from AirChain Network involves the following simple steps. 

  • Choose location: Customer selects the arrival and departure of the package.
  • Start a conversation: After selecting the most appropriate traveler, the customers can start a conversation and finalize the deal. 
  • Check the package: Traveler receives the package and starts the trip
  • Delivery of the package: The customer receives the package.   

Using this mobile application, it is possible to track the parcels, goods and services sent over the network. The users will also be able to add friends, family and others and easily send and receive coins from people on the friend list. The app’s encrypted chat function allows the users to chat with their contacts.  There is also a 100% secure wallet to wallet chat function. The review history of all users can be seen, helping them build credibility on the ecosystem. 

The ANK token is the proprietary utility token of AirChain Network that allows the community members to send parcels on the ecosystem and make more income. Using the ANK token, it is possible to pay for parcels fee and exchange parcels and income on a peer to peer level without intermediary or regulatory fees. Before a contract, the sender and receiver are required to go through a KYC/AML process conducted by a reputable third party.  Once the order is accepted, smart contact for both sides is executed by the ANK application and committed by the ANK token. The senders receive the ANK tokens in their wallet after the recipients receive their package and confirm the same.

PM7 is all set to start their Initial Coin Offering under smart contracts based on Ethereum, from December 17, 2017. This innovative affiliate marketing platform promises to revolutionize the concept of advertising for both online and offline projects by connecting the project creators directly to their customers, with no space for the advertising, marketing and PR agencies. 

December 9, 2017

PM7 is pleased to announce that the upcoming ICO campaign for their groundbreaking affiliate marketing platform will start on December 17, 2017. Designed to be the next big innovation in the field of advertising, PM7 will bridge the gap between the project creators and their audience by eliminating the intermediaries such as the advertising, marketing and PR agencies. Based on the blockchain technology, the platform looks to redefine the professional experience in the field of MLM by making it transparent and decentralized like never before.

The PM7 team will launch their new platform in the rapidly growing market of ICO campaigns. The competition in this field has grown significantly over the last few years, forcing many campaign owners to opt for expensive marketing campaigns to attract the attention of the investors. In some instances, this cost may amount to more that 50% of the entire ICO budget. PM7 will utilize a marketing burst similar to that of multi-level marketing, for the dissemination of information related to ICO campaigns.

The primary goal of the approach introduced by PM7 is to create a win-win situation for all parties. It offers project owners the support they need to reach out to a large number of potential users and investors. On the other hand, in addition to the ICO products, the users have the opportunity to make additional earnings by recommending the ICO campaigns. The distribution capabilities of this platform will be available soon for all types of projects. The participants in the PM7 system will receive benefits and income from its functioning and development on a multilevel basis. The platform will also provide PM7+, a mobile application with unique content related to each project.

An important component of the PM7 system is the PM7 event, an indicator of the platform volume equal to the possible amount of revenue in the system. Another key system component is the PM7 digital token based on the ERC-20 standard that will be awarded to the backers supporting the ICO of PM7 platform and purchasing premium accounts with different number of events. These tokens perform infrastructure functions and they are the identifier, the unit of measurement of PM7 events, and quantity of updatable free PM7 events per month that the backers will receive by purchasing events during the ICO. The PM7 token is also a virtual currency that will be accepted and used by projects on the platform (and partners) and will be accepted later as payment for services on the platform and bonuses.

The PM7 users will also receive commission based bonus for everyone involved in the user system. In order to maximize their bonus, the users have the freedom to share information about projects through any communication channels, including messengers, letters, social networks, text messages, or anything else. PM7 has already introduced PSP, a payment service for circulation, transfer and payment by cryptocurrencies.  The platform has also established an exchange market for personal transactions between users in the crypto currency and project tokens, using trading analytics tools and signals.

The company’s roadmap for the future includes

  • Launching PM7 ICO
  • Development of iOS/Android/Web SDK
  • PM7 Blockchain Explorer development for platform net and events visualisation
  • Development of social community chat for platform users
  • Issuance of Visa/MasterCard cards for cryptocurrency payments
  • Adding the possibility to pay bonuses as tokens of projects
  • Integration of PM7 with other types of projects
  • Creating own exchange market

The token distribution structure of PM7’s upcoming ICO is as mentioned below.

  • Token Price: $0.05
  • Total token quantity: 1,000,000,000
  • Quantity of token to be sold: 500,000, 000
  • Minimum purchase: 400 PM7
  • Hard cap: $12,500,000

More about this project can be found at https://pm7.com/

About PM7: PM7 is a decentralized and innovative affiliate marketing platform, designed to radically change the advertising world for online and offline projects. The main idea of the platform is to reduce the gap between the creators of advanced projects and their customers by eliminating the advertising, marketing and PR agencies and allow all participants in this process to create progressive and groundbreaking technologies.

Mining digital currency is certainly an attractive source of income. Plug in the GPU cards and let the digital gold pour. However, mining bitcoin alone consumes 0.13% of the world’s energy consumption. Fuelling such consumption with anything but renewable energy would have a devastating effect on the environment.

Fortunately, more and more mining facilities are switching to hydro and wind powered energy sources according to the latest Bitcoin News.

Europe’s largest Bitcoin ATMs provider and digital currency exchange Cointed is set to shake up the green mining industry in the later part of Q4/2017.

The team behind Cointed is inspired by always pushing the bar higher and being an example of innovation. To guarantee their clients the best possible service, all the Cointed mining hardware and software is custom made.

Collaboration with Nvidia

The company has already pre-ordered 125,000 custom-made GPUs in collaboration with Nvidia and Zotac that are especially designed for Cointed’s facilities. Of them 18,000 are already assembled in 2000 rigs of 9 cards each in a warehouse in Sweden and fully operational.

 

 

 

Optimized Mining Rig

The rigs and GPU cases are also improved to optimize performance. To alleviate the

issue of overheating the GPUs’ traditional fans have been replaced with heat sinks. Locating the fans on the case allows for optimal air circulation which improves cooling and makes maintenance easier. The motherboards are also customized to better synergize with the other components.

 

Inhouse Built Software

One of the biggest advantages, however, is the entirely inhouse built software. The team creates their own operating system to and GPU BIOS so that they get the optimal performance and synergy with their other custom parts.

You are the owner

The best thing about mining with Cointed is surely that you own the rig! Most of Cointed’s mining rigs are owned by the customers. The company is only operating and supporting them for a small fee. There are no small letters (is this the right expression?) whatever your GPUs mine minus the fee is what you will get.

CTD token

Right now, we are holding an ICO campaign to expand our business. The CTD token is the only opportunity to get access to the exclusive deals at Cointed. Some of the benefits are:

  • Discounts on ATM fees, software licensing as well as exchange
  • Mining: 15% discount on rigs and 5% hosting fees
  • Access to GPUs with 25% increased performance and inhouse BIOs
  • Discounts on crypto cards
  • PayCo discounts: 15% POS and 20% lower fees
  • 5% lower hosting fees
  • 15% off on mining equipment

ICO market is growing at a tremendous speed. Since the beginning of 2017, 228 companies have raised $3.6 billion in ICO deals (according to www.coinschedule.com). And there are several thousands more tech startups that soon will compete for investors’ money.

Among them there will probably be some scam companies – it is only to be expected. There have already been several scandals in the sector, and probably there will be more. In November investors of Confido startup that raised $375 000 from ICO had an unpleasant surprise. Confido CEO and other founders vanished. All investors’ money disappeared with them.

It is not so always easy to tell genuine projects from scam in the dark waters of ICO market. But it is definitely safer to chose those projects that have a developed product and if lucky, even media coverage.

Rentberry is a blockchain-based startup that was established in 2015 in San Francisco. It helps landlords and prospective long-term tenants find each other and stay in contact after the rental contract is signed.

Apart from $4 million it raised from the investors in two seed rounds, it has also received significant media coverage. In April WSJ reported, citing Rentberry CEO Alex Lubinsky, that its platform helps tenants to save 5.1 percent on rent compared with what landlords asked. Business Insider wrote that Rentberry aims to streamline the rental negotiation process for both tenants and landlords by bringing the process online. According to SFGate, Rentberry aims to compete with Craigslist and other “Stone Age” rental services.

Well, just to be noticed, a startup needs to have a product. And Rentberry is one of few companies that in the process of doing its Initial Coin Offering while already having a product and successful business.

Rentberry allows tenants to bid, eBay style, on the rent. Landlords set a preferred rent and prospective tenants then bid below that figure to see if they can get a good deal. Winning bidders would sign the rental agreement through Rentberry. Rent will be paid also online and Rentberry’s platform will help tenants to stay connected with their landlords.

At present Rentberry is available in about 5,000 cities across the US. It has over 224,000 properties and has processed more than 4,000 applications. Rentberry’s services are transparent and easy to use both for tenants and landlords. By the company’s estimates, in 2018 it will have 1 million listed properties and expand in Canada and several Asian and European countries. By 2020 it intends to go globally.

Rentberry has already received business offers from Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Cyprus and Canada to franchise or establish a partnership. It raised $4 million in two seed rounds. Among those who believe in Rentberry’s prospects are investors from a dozen countries, including Zing Capital, Ventures, Beechwood, Ventures, and others.

Rentberry plans to expand internationally by partnering with other companies in the real estate space, acquiring competitors, and doing extensive marketing. The marketing channels include traditional media and social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram), influencer marketing and word of mouth.

To increase deal volumes and expand in new cities and countries, Rentberry has launched ICO process. It will offer to investor Rentberry tokens (BERRY) at the exchange rate 1 ETH = 2,500 BERRY. The minimum purchase amount is 250 BERRY (0.1 ETH).

The sale starts on December, 5 and ends on February, 28. For “early birds” there will be a bonus: 33 percent on Dec 5 – 19; 27 percent on Dec 20 – 26; 20 percent on Dec 27 – Jan 16; 13 percent on Jan 17 – 26, and 7 percent on Jan 31 – Feb 13. The company will accept ETH and BTC.

There will also be bonuses for big purchases, but they will be discussed individually with potential buyers.

The proceeds from the sale of BERRY tokens will be allocated to IT development (30%), to marketing and sales (20%), to acquisitions and partnerships (15%), to international expansion (12.5%), to administrative and operational activity (10%), to development fund (5%), to legal expenses (5%) and to Bug Bounty program (2.5%).

21 November 2017, Zug, Switzerland, trade.io announces that as a result of community response, the company has decided to take steps to enable greater participation in its highly anticipated ICO.  This includes adjusting the entry price per Trade Token to a lower price to allow for broader participation and reflect the rise in Ethereum, which is used for purchase.  With the soft cap already achieved during the PRE-ICO, the price reduction lowers the upper level of the fund raise to approximately $135 million.  The result of this reduction will be net positive for existing and future Trade Token participants as it will provide existing token holders with a greater amount of additional tokens, and will allow new participants the ability to obtain a larger amount of Trade Tokens.  Additionally, the start of the ICO has been revised to December 5th, still concluding on the originally planned date of December 15th, 2017.

On the changes, CEO, Jim Preissler commented, “One of the primary factors that prompted the price reduction was the ongoing rise in the price of Ethereum.  We’ve been selling Trade Token based on the price of Ethereum, and the impact of the increase in its value has priced out many of the participants with a desire to get involved in trade.io.  The trade.io community now numbers in the thousands, and we felt it was only fair to lower the entry point to allow greater participation, and still allocate a large amount of Trade Tokens to our loyal followers.”

Preissler continued, “As previously announced, we have surpassed our soft cap of $5M in the first few days of PRE-ICO.  The modified market cap, as noted, leaves us with plenty of room to execute upon all original initiatives and milestones.  We’re anticipating some major announcements over the next 1-2 weeks and as a result, in order to communicate the updates, we felt it was in the best interest of the community to push back the ICO start date to December 5th.  This will allow a more uniform ICO sale of which we are gauging tremendous interest, and will be fair to everyone who wants to get involved.”

As a result of the lowered hard cap, current Trade Token holders will have their current allocation multiplied by a factor of 5 and this change will appear in their Members Area no later than close of business on November 22nd.  In addition, Liquidity Pool participation will increase by a factor of 5, which has been outlined in the White Paper.

PRE-ICO price will be modified to 1 ETH = 1,000 Trade Tokens for the remaining 3 days of PRE-ICO starting no later than close of business, November 22nd.  Any prior purchases will have the allocation multiplied by a factor of 5, so everyone is treated equally on a pro-rata basis.  ICO pricing has been modified to one standard price being 1 ETH = 625 Trade Tokens.
