OTC Risk Warnings

Because many securities traded Over-The-Counter (OTC) are relatively illiquid, or “thinly traded,” which tends to increase volatility in market prices, an investment in an OTC security involves a high degree of risk. These speculative and illiquid securities are often difficult for investors to buy or sell without significantly affecting the quoted price. It should be noted that the liquidation of a position in an OTC security may not even be possible within a reasonable period of time.
Dependable information regarding issuers of OTC securities, their prospects, or the risks associated with the business of any particular issuer or an investment in the issuer’s securities may not be available. For this reason, it may be difficult to properly value an investment in an OTC security or accurately determine the risks involved with investing in such a security. For more information about investing in microcap securities, please read the content on the SEC’s website, including the SEC’s investor publication titled “Microcap Stock: A Guide for Investors” available at https://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/microcapstock.htm.

Issuers of OTC securities quoted on the OTC Link system are not required to provide any kind of information to investors. While many issuers register OTC securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and regularly provide reports to investors in connection with such registration, they are not required to continue such registration or regularly provide such reports because their securities are quoted on OTC Link. Securities may continue to be quoted on the OTC Link system if issuers are delinquent in their reporting obligation to the SEC or other federal or state regulatory agencies. Quotation of a security on the OTC Link system does not in itself create any ongoing filing or reporting obligations with the SEC for any issuer. In fact, issuers may not even be aware that their securities are quoted on the OTC Link system.

Will the USD Hold Up as the Global Reserve Currency?

by
USD

USD

The USD is a global reserve currency. Therefore, while many currencies weaken during times of crisis, the US Dollar not only stays put but grows stronger. This has been happening over and over, so it’s expected that in the coronavirus recession, USD should behave the same way. And it does stand strong at the moment. However, the long-term forecast for this currency isn’t so bright. It’s quite possible that with the rise of digital payments in the pandemic, a crypto reserve currency is in our future.

Is the USD Truly Weakening in the Coronavirus Crisis?

At the moment, the USD is the strongest currency in the world. It’s a simple truth. And this situation won’t change for some time yet, regardless of how the US economy is faring. The reason for this is the fact that the US Dollar is the reserve currency of the world. Therefore, when the volatility of a global recession hit, everyone flocked to the Dollar.

Investors, business owners, and regular everyday people are putting their trust and money into the USD. They are doing it in order to hedge against the difficult economic times ahead. This strategy has worked for many during previous recessions, so why would this one be different?

So far, there is nothing different about the coronavirus recession in regards to the USD situation as a dominating currency. Also, everyone who can, such as expats and global businesses, are capitalizing on it. You can see this from the growing demand in USD transfers. Everyone wants to have some security in these uncertain times, and it seems that the Dollar is it.

All things considered, it should be a stellar time for the American Dollar, right?

Unfortunately, the current crisis is very different from a regular economic recession. It’s not only the coronavirus pandemic that’s affecting the current situation. The US economy is facing pressure from multiple sides and, therefore, the USD is in danger of weakening and collapsing along with it.

For now, its status as the global reserve currency is preventing this from happening. However, this “protection” won’t last forever. And should the USA not recover well from this pandemic, the Dollar might lose its position entirely.

Will the USD Lose Its Position as the Global Reserve Currency?

For all its seeming strength, the USD is in a difficult position at the moment. There is no doubt that it will remain strong for a while. However, once this crisis is over, the world will be changed irrevocably. And one of those changes might be the fall of the US Dollar from the position of global reserve currency.

The main reasons for this possibility are:

  • The US economy is weakening fast.

Millions of people have already lost their jobs, and more might follow in the next few months. As such, the economy cannot recover the losses incurred during lockdowns. And the longer it takes to do this, the harder the situation gets.

  • Difficult trade relationships with China.

It’s a fact that China’s economy hasn’t been stronger than that of the USA prior to this crisis. It’s not stronger now, as well. But while China is rapidly recovering, the US is facing a threat of a second wave of the pandemic. Once that strikes, the economy will suffer much more. Meanwhile, China is gaining rapidly and could become the greatest global economy soon. Should this happen, the mantle of the world’s reserve currency might fall to the Yuan.

  •  The need for digital currencies is growing fast.

One factor that can help bring down the USD is that the world is about ready to embrace the use of cryptocurrency. This crisis has led to an unprecedented rise in the use of fintech apps. It jumped up by 72% in a single week at the start of the pandemic. And while digital payments have been growing more popular before, now they’ve become a necessity. It’s reasonable to assume that adopting crypto is the next logical step in the global monetary development.

Can the Next Reserve Currency Be a Cryptocurrency?

Crypto might not have made a breakthrough yet, but it’s been steadily growing in popularity in the last few years. The COVID-19 pandemic has advanced this growth by leaps and bounds. Many financial expert advisors recommend investing in cryptocurrency today.

If nothing else, this will be a good hedging tool for panicking investors.

It’s true that the Bitcoin value dropped dramatically at the beginning of March. This made many people doubt that crypto might become a true hedging tool. However, since then, BTC has already doubled in value. This recovery rate indicates that while Bitcoin isn’t 100% safe, it’s still rather recession-resistant.

Meanwhile, governments the world over are understanding that instead of a luxury, digital payments must become the norm. It’s a healthcare requirement, as well as a logical choice. The increase in the number of digital payments during the lockdown period is proof that people like this method. This means that when the social distancing regulations are lifted, people won’t just go back to using cash.

Should cash payments become obsolete, a digital currency will be a necessity. China’s government seems to understand this clearly. Therefore, the country is reported to be in the process of the development of digital yuan. There is no release date for it yet, but this type of crypto might be exactly what’s necessary.

Nothing changed about the fact that governments are against crypto because they can’t control it in any way. A digital currency that’s tied to the country itself would be a different case. However, now it’s too early to say what will come from this situation in the long-term. But one thing is sure, if there is no digital version of the USD in circulation when other such crypto variations begin to appear, the Dollar will have no chance.

Final Thoughts: What Will the Monetary World Be Like After the Pandemic?

The US Dollar is a very strong currency. There is no denying the fact that even if it does lose its position as a reserve currency, this won’t happen fast. However, the situation we are seeing today makes this future a distinct possibility.

The main problem is that despite the usual strengthening of the currency during a global recession, it’s still weak. Numbers might not reflect this at this moment. But major economic issues plaguing the US are concerning.

The tension in the US-China trade relationship doesn’t help America in any way. In fact, it’s setting the US economy, and therefore currency, in direct competition with China. Sadly, this is a fight that the US might not win. As Chinese businesses are reopening after the virus, America is set to face the second wave.

Should this happen, the US economy, which is already struggling, will be crippled. At that point, the benefits that come from the USD being a global reserve currency won’t be able to sustain it. Therefore, other currencies, such as the Yuan, might push to the top position as the reserve.

However, there is also a chance that this drastic monetary and economic situation will give cryptocurrency the push it needs. The benefits it offers as both a hedging tool and tool for quick global payments are numerous. And the need for easy digital payments is skyrocketing. Crypto has the potential to resolve many issues for many economies. The question is whether governments will take the step of truly adopting digital currencies.

Counos U Stable Coin Listed With Swiss ISIN No. and Backed 100%

by

Counos

Counos U: A New Means of Payment is Conquering the World

Being able to pay with one currency and get a return has never been seen before and will conquer the world in no time. Counos U is 100% backed with dollars and has a fixed value of $100. To ensure this, a specially developed vehicle is built. This vehicle secures the deposited dollars.

That is 4 trustees, a Swiss bank, and seven other lawyers. This ensures that every Counos U is 100% backed with US Dollar, not as with USDT, where only 74% is backed with dollars. But that’s not enough, for all Counos U that you hold longer than 1 year, you get a 3.9% return. You can buy Counos U directly with your primary bank via the Swiss ISIN.

Prominent Features of Counos U:

  • Direct purchase and sale through your local bank
  • Fixed value of $100
  • Annual return of 3.9%
  • Easy exchange to dollar, CHF, EUR, or other cryptocurrencies
  • Worldwide transfer
  • Grade A safety and security algorithms
  • Fast and quick

Cuonos

The First Bankable Stablecoin

The Counos platform was the first to create a coin that can be bought directly with your local bank. No matter which bank in the world, you can go to your advisor and buy Counos U through the Swiss ISIN. The latter will ask you for the ISIN, which you will find here, then he will send the money to a Swiss bank and they will secure your assets.

Easy Exchange from Dollar, CHF, EUR, to Counos U and Back

With the help of the Counos Decentralized Exchange of the Counos Platform and the agents, it is easy to exchange Counos U with Fiat currencies around the world and to exchange back again.

This way you can send money around the world 24/7 in a safe and fast way. The minimum transaction costs are also negligible and therefore unrivaled. The Blockchain only takes 2.5 minutes to confirm a transaction and since it is not a token but a coin, this will not be longer.

How Does Money Transfer With Counos U Work?

Transferring money with Counos U is as simple as it is ingenious. For example, we take a person who wants to deliver USD from the USA to Dubai. In this case, this person can buy Counos U from a Counos agent in the United States. He then sends these to Dubai, where an agent can convert the Counos U into USD. Since no bank has to give a confirmation, this works at any time.

Payment of Goods or Services

A very safe and easy way to use Counos U is to pay for goods or services. For example, if you live in the USA and order a Rolex from Switzerland, you can use Counos U on the Counos Escrow service to purchase and pay for the Rolex. The seller then sees the payment already made and can safely send the Rolex to the USA. He can then change the received Counos U to Swiss francs or US dollars or keep the Counos U and benefit from the 3.9% annual return.

Another Big Advantage of Counos U

Many traders or ordinary people want to keep their assets in safe currency overnight. So you can change your volatile cryptocurrencies into a stablecoin on every central exchange that Counos U offers and thus keep your assets safe. If you want withdrawals from the exchange, you can withdraw Counos U directly and do not have to refer to a bank account.

OTC Risk Warnings

Because many securities traded Over-The-Counter (OTC) are relatively illiquid, or “thinly traded,” which tends to increase volatility in market prices, an investment in an OTC security involves a high degree of risk. These speculative and illiquid securities are often difficult for investors to buy or sell without significantly affecting the quoted price. It should be noted that the liquidation of a position in an OTC security may not even be possible within a reasonable period of time.
Dependable information regarding issuers of OTC securities, their prospects, or the risks associated with the business of any particular issuer or an investment in the issuer’s securities may not be available. For this reason, it may be difficult to properly value an investment in an OTC security or accurately determine the risks involved with investing in such a security. For more information about investing in microcap securities, please read the content on the SEC’s website, including the SEC’s investor publication titled “Microcap Stock: A Guide for Investors” available at https://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/microcapstock.htm.

Issuers of OTC securities quoted on the OTC Link system are not required to provide any kind of information to investors. While many issuers register OTC securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and regularly provide reports to investors in connection with such registration, they are not required to continue such registration or regularly provide such reports because their securities are quoted on OTC Link. Securities may continue to be quoted on the OTC Link system if issuers are delinquent in their reporting obligation to the SEC or other federal or state regulatory agencies. Quotation of a security on the OTC Link system does not in itself create any ongoing filing or reporting obligations with the SEC for any issuer. In fact, issuers may not even be aware that their securities are quoted on the OTC Link system.

Bitcoin is All Grown Up and the Future is Bright

by
Bitcoin

Bitcoin

Currency has had a fruitful and largely charmed life, and watching it come into its crypto own is heart-warming indeed. 

Currency as we know it has been evolving throughout our lifetimes. Along the same timeline and gently curving slope that it has evolved along since the advent of currency. From bartering and trading for goods, to exchanging precious metals, gems, and even spices for something else. Notes and coins are still, in the larger sense of currency, a fairly novel addition, but even those have seen their heyday and are entering into their twilight years. In fact, it’s estimated that almost 92% of the world’s money exists in a digital format today.

So, money has evolved. Come up from the muck of cumbersome goods and awkward items, to become easily transportable bills and coins, only now to blossom into a near digital enterprise. Surely, this may come as a surprise to some, particularly when seeing so many who balk at the thought of a cashless society—because reasonably, we’re already there. We live in a world where money is largely represented by a series of numbers, zero’s and one’s jumbled elegantly into bank balances and portfolio pages. Anyone who frequents Bitvavo, or any other crypto exchange, can tell you that despite them not holding a bitcoin in their hand, they know it exists. They’re sure it has value. Largely because they are capable of trading it. Turning it into other numbers—like those representing fiat. Or exchanging it for tangible goods and services.

Understanding Money 

Nearly all money as we understand it, not just digital currencies, is purely representative of an idea. A dollar has value because you’re told it does. Because you can exchange it for things that you want. But that piece of specialized paper has no more, or no less, worth than the $1 in your bank account. One can be held, the other can be seen on a screen, but both can be traded for something else. Both have equal value.

Bank notes and coins haven’t been “worth” anything since the 1970’s, when the last real ties to gold-backed currency were cut. Now, the inherent value of what you find under your couch cushions is merely that which the state tells you it’s worth. And digital economies representing global demand tell the state what it’s worth. Despite all of us being familiar with money, how to use it, and its assigned value, we seem to be willfully ignorant of the fact that the actual value of that bill is the same as the actual value of a non-existent bitcoin. It’s almost arbitrary, based on nothing more than an idea.

But it’s those ideas that make both money, and bitcoin, worth having. The shared agreement between a wide community of people that, if I give you a bitcoin, you’ll give me something in return that I need or want. Similarly, if I give you a dollar, hopefully the same will happen.

Decentralizing Its Adolescence

What sets bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies apart from being just another form of money is that they are decentralized. They are the next step in the inevitable evolution of finance. What it means when it’s said that bitcoin is “decentralized” is that there is no central authority that grants us permission to have bitcoin. No one entity that decides it’s value, how to use it, or when to ‘print’ it. Bitcoin is owned, operated, and maintained by the entire bitcoin community, making it a fully democratized form of currency.

Because of this, bitcoin is protected against many of the things that make traditional currencies less than ideal. You cannot create more bitcoin. Governments can essentially just print money any time they need it. Like when the economy gets hit hard and stimulus is required. This practice is called quantitative easing (QE), and while it’s not quite as simple as “just printing money,” that’s mostly what it boils down to. QE is a slippery slope, however. Print too much, and the market becomes saturated, devaluing the agreed upon worth of the asset. This can also cause a problem called hyperinflation. When there is too much money in circulation, it can cause the prices of goods and services to skyrocket, requiring even more money to obtain them.

With bitcoin, there is a finite amount of it in existence, and that amount is released slowly over time, making it impossible to saturate the market in such a way. The value of bitcoin is somewhat predictable. By looking at the number of bitcoins in circulation, and weighing that against public demand, you can get a good idea of what bitcoin is worth. This is a system called artificial scarcity. Assets like gold and natural diamonds base their values off of this system. 

A Freer Future

But bitcoin is just one (and by far the most popular) form of cryptocurrency. Realistically, if cryptocurrencies and decentralized digital currencies are embraced in the future, there’s no limit to what their values could represent. Instead of creating worth based on demand, we could reasonably have a system of tokenized tradable assets. Which means that digital tokens (like bitcoin) could be used to represent anything—from a carton of eggs to a roof being built. Each of these assets could then be equally represented based on their individual demand, created a global currency that is representative of a genuine barter system.

This effectively cuts out the ability for shady monetary practices to exist. No more leveraging interest rates, no more speculation, or insider trading, or short selling. No more rampant and unnecessary wealth accumulation. Just a genuine exchange of goods and services as and when they are needed. However, we may never actually see that system, or it may be quite a long way off. Regardless, money has evolved into the age of bitcoin and we’re thrilled for the future.

Crypto Trading 101 | 5 Golden Rules for Successful Trading

by

Do you follow some crypto trading rules? If you don’t have any, you should use these five golden rules for successful trading.

Crypto trading isn’t about getting lucky a few times. If you want to find success with trading cryptocurrencies, you must base your good results on fundamentals, good habits, and experience. Making money as a crypto trader requires some discipline, and that means following some trading rules.

1. Invest Only What You Can Afford to Lose

Like with any other type of investment, crypto trading is a risky business. And sometimes traders take a loss even if they did everything “right.”

Take the recent crash in January 2018, also known as the Bitcoin Crash and the Great Crypto Crash, for example. After an unprecedented boom in the precedent year, in 2018, the price of Bitcoin fell by nearly 65% in the first month of the year. The results? Broken monitors, smashed laptops, and the most massive monetary losses ever suffered by the traders on that market. So, markets like the crypto market are unpredictable sometimes. That’s why this is perhaps the most essential rule in crypto trading: don’t invest more than you afford to lose!

Whenever you are trading, there’s no 100% guarantee that you’ll get your money back. Loses don’t just come from other investors’ better strategies but can also be caused by extraordinary factors, such as hacks, bugs, or even government regulations.

So, before every investment you make, take a step back, and re-evaluate your current financial situation. If you can’t afford to invest at all, don’t take any desperate decision such as using a credit card, taking out a mortgage, or applying for loans. Simply wait for the moment when your financial situation allows you to invest.

2. Diversify Your Investments

One golden rule that all pro investors know is that you should never put all your eggs in one basket when it comes to investing.

Although you have a greater potential to get a more substantial amount of money when you invest in a single coin, the risk of losing more money is equally magnified, if not bigger. So, the smart thing to do to avoid losing a lot of money if a particular coin takes a hit is diversifying your investments and investing in different currencies.

Let us give you an example to help you understand the importance of diversifying your investments. Between January 2016 and January 2018, different coins enjoyed different levels of success. While Corgicoin has increased by 60,000 times, Verge currency increased by 13,000 times. However, Bitcoin only increased by 34 times. So, if you had invested in Bitcoin, this would have gotten you impressive gains, but investing in other coins too would have helped you gain potentially more significant amounts of money.

3. Choose a Reliable Broker

Choosing the best crypto trading Forex broker is a battle half won. Hundreds of online brokers offer crypto and Forex trading options. By no means, however, should you choose the first broker you find online.

The best broker is reliable and genuine. Keep in mind that your money will be at stake, so you’d want to know that you can trust your broker with them. Also, make sure that your broker is regulated. This is the best way to know that they are reliable and checked. Regulated brokers also offer the best digital security measures, best execution prices, and excellent customer support if or when you need it. Another crucial thing you should look for in a broker, mainly if you are a beginner, are demo accounts and learning resources on how to trade cryptocurrency.

So how do you choose the best crypto broker from such a large pool of online brokers? The best way to find a reliable broker is to do your research. Look online and find everything you can about that broker, including reviews and recommendations from other more experienced traders. If you find anything that seems sketchy, don’t choose that broker because you might sign yourself up for a bad trading experience that will make you lose a lot of money.

4. Avoid FOMO At All Costs

FOMO is the weak spot in investing that makes investors lose money most frequently. It only takes a bit of media hype, a few opinions from investment “experts,” and a little bit of insecurity from your part to make you make a wrong decision. In fact, the same recipe is what made Bitcoin prices rise from $10,000 to $20,000 in December 2018. Now, investors may look back and think that if they had waited one more month, they could have bought the cryptocurrency at $9,000 instead of waiting until the coin hit $20,000 again.

This is often a mix of greediness, investing blindly, and FOMO.

Never heard of FOMO before? You should get familiar with the term because, as an investor, you’ll have to fight it off all the time. FOMO stands for Fear of Missing Out. So, as an investor, you may fear that if you don’t buy now, the coin will hit an all-time high, which may sometimes not happen, and the market may actually move completely different, bringing results that you weren’t prepared for.

Now, here’s the deal: even in the most fast-changing market, like the cryptocurrency world is, if a coin’s price hits an all-time-high that quickly, it is only a matter of time until it will correct. So, don’t let FOMO take control of your investment decisions.

5. Don’t Invest Blindly

We’ve already mentioned investing blindly before, but let’s make sure you understand what it means and how to avoid it.

Investing blindly means going with the trends or listening to other people from the cryptocurrency world when it comes to your investments. Now, don’t get us wrong, some traders may genuinely want to help and give you a pro tip that actually works. But most of them often share their “opinions” to exploit less-informed investors. They might tell you to buy a particular coin only so that they can exit safely. So, only use your knowledge and experience when you make your investment decisions.

OTC Risk Warnings

Because many securities traded Over-The-Counter (OTC) are relatively illiquid, or “thinly traded,” which tends to increase volatility in market prices, an investment in an OTC security involves a high degree of risk. These speculative and illiquid securities are often difficult for investors to buy or sell without significantly affecting the quoted price. It should be noted that the liquidation of a position in an OTC security may not even be possible within a reasonable period of time.
Dependable information regarding issuers of OTC securities, their prospects, or the risks associated with the business of any particular issuer or an investment in the issuer’s securities may not be available. For this reason, it may be difficult to properly value an investment in an OTC security or accurately determine the risks involved with investing in such a security. For more information about investing in microcap securities, please read the content on the SEC’s website, including the SEC’s investor publication titled “Microcap Stock: A Guide for Investors” available at https://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/microcapstock.htm.

Issuers of OTC securities quoted on the OTC Link system are not required to provide any kind of information to investors. While many issuers register OTC securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and regularly provide reports to investors in connection with such registration, they are not required to continue such registration or regularly provide such reports because their securities are quoted on OTC Link. Securities may continue to be quoted on the OTC Link system if issuers are delinquent in their reporting obligation to the SEC or other federal or state regulatory agencies. Quotation of a security on the OTC Link system does not in itself create any ongoing filing or reporting obligations with the SEC for any issuer. In fact, issuers may not even be aware that their securities are quoted on the OTC Link system.

What Factors Can Make a Cryptocurrency Crash?

by
cryptocurrency

cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrencies are notorious for being volatile, and the fact that their prices fluctuate wildly is really quite normal. However, what is not so normal is when the price suddenly plummets and wipes out a huge amount of value.

That is what is known as a crash, and it is one of the things that people fear most. Over the years, there have been several cryptocurrency crashes, and the most notable was in 2018 when the value of cryptocurrencies fell over 60% in about a month.

As unpredictable as these crashes are, they are not without cause. In fact, there are several factors that contribute to a cryptocurrency crashing, and if you know what they are, then you can take steps to be safe.

Significant Profit-Taking

The initial cause behind a cryptocurrency crash is often profit-taking. Profit-taking is simply the practice of selling after a cryptocurrency has gone through an increase in price, and on its own, it is a perfectly normal occurrence.

However, when there is too much profit-taking, it can create selling pressure—and that can lead to the start of a crash.

Knock-On Effect and Panic

If selling pressure starts to build up, it can drive other investors into selling their cryptocurrency too—and create a knock-on effect. When the effect is large enough, it can make many people panic, and result in a cascading sell-off.

Nowadays, panic can spread very quickly, and in a short period of time, a cryptocurrency could lose a huge chunk of its value. Once the knock-on effect starts, it is difficult to stop, unless investor confidence is restored quickly.

Break of Support

Another factor that contributes to a large-scale crash is when a cryptocurrency breaks past a particular level that was “supporting” it. For example, the cryptocurrency’s price may hover around the $1,000 mark for some time—but once it breaks past that and gets lower, it is likely to drop quickly.

Typically, when a cryptocurrency breaks through a support level, it does so with force and triggers a big crash in its value. The 2018 crash happened when Bitcoin broke through the $6,000 support level, and its value immediately dropped like a rock.

Bitcoin Reliance

For better or for worse, Bitcoin is the face of cryptocurrencies. As such, the value of all other cryptocurrencies relies on BTC to some degree and is influenced by its price when it is doing well and when it is doing badly.

When Bitcoin is trending normally, that reliance is not a big deal. However, if BTC does crash for any reason, it tends to drag down cryptocurrencies across the board, and most of them crash too.

Project Closure

In many cases, the crash of a cryptocurrency may not be due to market forces, but instead simply because the project itself is winding up and about to close. The majority of cryptocurrencies are essentially startups, and many do not survive more than a year or two.

Needless to say, when it is clear that the startup is going to shut down, the value of the cryptocurrency itself will plummet.

Knowing the factors that can make a cryptocurrency crash is useful regardless of whether you trade Bitcoin or some other token. Aside from taking steps to mitigate your risk, you may be able to identify the early warning signs of a possible crash—and quickly take steps to prevent too much damage.

Make no mistake, it is not possible to completely avoid the exposure from a cryptocurrency market crash. However, it is possible to limit your losses.

NeTides of Magic Allows You to Play with Tokens from Other Games

by
Tides of Magic

Tides of Magic

Tides of Magic is a trading card game in development for the Ethereum blockchain.

It boasts a beautiful design and is filled with deep character lore. In the game, you can buy minions, spells, and special habitats, which are all erc721 token naturally.

Tides of MagicTides of MagicTides of Magic

What makes this game interesting is the ambitious crossover it’s building.

Tides of Magic

That’s a picture of an axie (above) from axie infinity appearing in the game. “Not only should game assets be on-chain, but they all should be able to interact with each other, regardless of the project,” according to the project’s Medium. Players will be able to download their erc721 tokens from other crypto games and collectibles and build decks out of them to battle.

Let’s be frank here; user activity across dApps is low. And the available users are fractured between projects. These types of crossovers are exactly what crypto needs right now. A platform where players can come in with their own assets and interact with another. You don’t even have to buy assets for Tides of Magic specifically. Just bring the tokens you’ve got from other games. Play together and build the crypto gaming community as a whole.

These crossovers are not unfamiliar in gaming as a whole; it’s something Super Smash Brothers did with wild success, for example.

A few of these types of games have popped up with some success. Cryptokitties is one, which allows you to duel with your Cryptokittie assets. There have been none as ambitious as Tides of Magic, though. The game developers are currently reaching out to different crypto companies implementing the erc721 standard to integrate into the Tides of Magic platform. Eventually, they will move to crypto games that are on other blockchains.

The presale just opened up with several different packs of cards. The pack prices are set to increase after each purchase, so make sure to buy them soon while they’re still cheap!

OTC Risk Warnings
Because many securities traded Over-The-Counter (OTC) are relatively illiquid, or “thinly traded,” which tends to increase volatility in market prices, an investment in an OTC security involves a high degree of risk. These speculative and illiquid securities are often difficult for investors to buy or sell without significantly affecting the quoted price. It should be noted that the liquidation of a position in an OTC security may not even be possible within a reasonable period of time.
Dependable information regarding issuers of OTC securities, their prospects, or the risks associated with the business of any particular issuer or an investment in the issuer’s securities may not be available. For this reason, it may be difficult to properly value an investment in an OTC security or accurately determine the risks involved with investing in such a security. For more information about investing in microcap securities, please read the content on the SEC’s website, including the SEC’s investor publication titled “Microcap Stock: A Guide for Investors” available at https://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/microcapstock.htm.
Issuers of OTC securities quoted on the OTC Link system are not required to provide any kind of information to investors. While many issuers register OTC securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and regularly provide reports to investors in connection with such registration, they are not required to continue such registration or regularly provide such reports because their securities are quoted on OTC Link. Securities may continue to be quoted on the OTC Link system if issuers are delinquent in their reporting obligation to the SEC or other federal or state regulatory agencies. Quotation of a security on the OTC Link system does not in itself create any ongoing filing or reporting obligations with the SEC for any issuer. In fact, issuers may not even be aware that their securities are quoted on the OTC Link system.

One Company That is Bucking the Trends

by
Markethive

Markethive

Centralized Social Media platforms, like Facebook, Google, and LinkedIn to name a few, have been paramount and prevalent in our lives for nearly 2 decades, so many people are unaware of the technology that is available to us now. The upcoming platforms classed as Market Networks are a sovereign way to develop online communities, giving the power back to the people. With the onset of Blockchain along with Cryptocurrency, this absolutely levels the playing field. What this means is complete privacy, autonomy, and freedom of speech, as well as the ability to earn an income. There are a handful of new Blogging Community Platforms that have already risen using crypto by way of their own tokens as an incentive to use the platforms.

The Social Media platforms we have today are ultimately accountable to their shareholders and staff, and as an enormous amount of users utilize these platforms predominantly for free, forthcoming profit will not come from user engagement or user growth. It comes by other means which has been and is detrimental to the community at large. Centralization has also created tension within the communities due to algorithmic partisanship, rules that keep changing, banning, and deleting of accounts wiping out all the effort and results entrepreneurs have implemented to establish an online presence.

A New Era is Here

There are now new systems and platforms being built that have much better outcomes for humankind in every aspect, including economic benefits and privacy. Now everyone can enjoy all the benefits of a social media environment along with all the marketing and blogging tools and portals. Below are the vertical platforms we have now, all centralized. One organization, in particular, has incorporated all the different types of social media and eCommerce, all on one interface:

  • Social networking (Facebook, Google+, Webtalk).
  • Microblogging (Twitter, Tumblr).
  • Photo sharing (Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest).
  • Video sharing (YouTube, Facebook Live, Periscope, Vimeo).
  • Networking Business & Employment (LinkedIn)
  • eCommerce (Freelancers, Coin Exchange)
  • Content & Blogging (Medium, Quora, Steemit )

Markethive is recognized as the next phase that has evolved from Social Networks. Having commenced over 20 years ago as an Inbound Marketing platform via Veretekk, it now has the technology that is capable to combine the scalable network effects of Facebook or LinkedIn with the lucrative revenue models of Saas and marketplace hubs like eBay and Amazon. It has vertical platforms like freelancers and coin exchange, and a collaboration niche for commercial artists, writers, voice & video services. It is 20 years of proven technology, merging with the blockchain. It’s built on a higher generation blockchain to make it possible to handle large social groups.

Thomas Prendergast, Markethive’s CEO, stated:

“Markethive was built on the foundation of 20 years of proprietary technology and has been running live with 1000s of subscribers in beta for nearly 4 years. Markethive’s mission is to create a universal income for entrepreneurs, using our multiple platforms built for the entrepreneurial markets. Markethive has a working product, starting out 20 years ago as Veretekk, then segwayed into what is now Markethive which is launching on the blockchain.”

To find out more, I spoke to some of the members who are in long-standing: 

David Ogden, Markethive Entrepreneur, said:

“Markethive is no flash in the pan marketing system, it was born out of Veretekk, developed by Tom Prendergast, who is a master in marketing. I joined Veretekk around 2000, The system produced endless quality leads and an email system to communicate with them. The system was free and could be used to build any business. The rise of the Blockchain offers more security with a distributed network.”

Dennis Roeder shared:

“I first became acquainted with Thomas Prendergast back in 1988. There was always open communication and direction on what was in the development stages and what to expect. Mr. Prendergast had a divine vision to produce a system that would be entirely free for members to use the marketing tools. Veretekk slowly evolved into a company named Markethive which was designed to be a Free to members platform. Then along came the Blockchain and Bitcoin, and that gave a reason for Markethive to be the ‘go-to’ Market Network for entrepreneurs. Members will have free access to the tools plus as they use the system they can be paid using a new term called Universal Income.”

What is Underpinning Markethive to Ensure Its Viability?

Markethive’s innovation is producing Mining Hives that create massive surplus electricity built on total 100% green energy. Along with Hemp/Medicinal Cannabis cultivation, it’s sure to be a winner in the blockchain space and crypto industry. With its own coin exchange, ease of liquidity and underpinned by a plethora of Inbound Marketing products for its End Users, it’s a complete Ecosystem for Entrepreneurs, Bloggers, and Commercial Artists. This is a platform to keep an eye on as it comes up through the ranks. This is going to disrupt Social Media and all forms of marketing as we know it.

Mr. Prendergast said:

“We produce the coin to give as an incentive to sign up in Markethive as PayPal did. We are not using the coin to raise money. It’s not speculative but has the ability and potential to become very valuable due to many products and services that are in high demand. So pump and dumps won’t affect the company or its revenue. It’s not dependent upon speculation of their coin. We are dependent upon delivering services and products people want whether the coin is up or down, which in turn will increase the value of the coin despite the markets.”

The era representing the rise of the entrepreneur has arrived, while other organizations, inbound marketing providers, blockchain implementers, and cryptocurrencies are still frozen in time.

With Blockchain, cryptocurrency, inbound marketing, and decentralized database technologies, Markethive has constructed a social market network that provides a “Universal Income.” Markethive’s culture is one of innovation, and the ECO-SYSTEM is part of the New Revolution. It is 27 years of proven technology, merging with the blockchain. This will result in a flotilla of money machines driving the basic platforms while creating an eco-center for entrepreneurs, where they can create and maintain a livable income while turning their ideas and concepts into reality.

Markethive Entrepreneur, Richard Mathiason, said:

“I have been with Thomas Prendergast since Veretekk. I enjoyed being a Trainer at that time and using Veretekk to gather Leads. Thomas has always been ahead of the times in regards to marketing. The free marketing tools that he has developed over time have been amazing.”

Richard went on to say:

“Technology has finally caught up with Thomas’s Grand Vision. We are now able to correct some problems that all social networks have. We are moving the Network to a Blockchain to showcase our Privacy Policy, decentralize the platform to make it harder to hack, adding 4 levels of Security and creating a Wallet that will only allow you to have control of your network.

“The best part is that Thomas is a good friend and he will drop everything to help someone out. Thank You for being my friend and for Markethive, the best social/market out there.”

Conclusion

It’s just a matter of time until nearly all independent professionals and their clients will conduct business through the development of tight-knit collaborative Market Networks within specific industries.

Starting NOW, there will be many more forward-thinking entrepreneurs stepping forward, with their sights set upon creating increasingly innovative, highly synchronized business models and solutions to doing business in the 21st century and beyond. Those who will be most successful will not only keep up with the speed at which technology continues to change, but they will align themselves ahead of the curve at all times.

Market Networks will have a massive positive impact on how millions of people work and live, and how hundreds of millions of people buy and sell better services.

The TAO | A New Framework to Power the Web

by
TAO

TAO

The internet has evolved significantly since its inception, spawning the creation of global protocols, frameworks, and new classifications of developers. This has resulted in centralization difficulties, unnecessary complexities, and diminished quality standards loaded with vulnerabilities. The Nexus Tritium, Amine, and Obsidian (TAO) Framework will uproot these historic flaws by recomposing digital relationships. This article provides an overview of the TAO Framework, recent Application Programming Interface (API) improvements, and associated benefits.

As a new era emerges, many platforms are driving excessive emphasis on blockchain. It is often described as an exclusive magical technology, motivated primarily by value speculation. This dilemma is similar to the internet’s, causing decelerated adoption and crippling costs while enabling proprietary industries to exploit deficiencies (i.e. Hardware Wallets, Patented Products, etc.). 

TAO Framework

Nexus views the blockchain as a foundational element of a larger framework. The TAO Framework, named after the three phases of deployment, utilizes a seven-layered software stack powering a register-based process virtual machine. It is designed to deliver a diverse range of outcomes simplistically and effectively. The stack layers and descriptions are reflected below with the “Ledger” being the Three Dimensional Chain (3DC).

Inspired by the Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) model, the design provides a scalable foundation with provable security properties. It abstracts the developer away from the blockchain, being valuable as a development framework even for conventional applications (Apps).

Lower Level Library (LLL)

The Lower Level Library (LLL) is the foundation for the framework and interwoven throughout each layer to improve performance, extensibility, and reliability. Architecturally, it is an interchangeable construct requiring development of templates and modules for specific functions. The LLL-TAO or TAO Framework is a series of LLL templates and data models accessible through a JSON-based API, allowing any type of developer to improve their application’s security, scalability, and robustness.

The LLL contains three main components: Cryptography (LLC), Database (LLD), and Protocol (LLP). There are several representations of LLD in the stack; Ledger, Register, Operations, and API. The LLC is primarily applied at the Ledger layer although it can be implemented elsewhere. As a component of the Network Layer, the LLP is designed to be a light, fast protocol that allows a developer to customize their packet design and message interpretation.

TAO Use Cases

For most businesses and organizations, technology transformations translate to delivering customer value expeditiously and effectively. Typically, security considerations are an afterthought due to their invasive nature, high costs, and latency, especially with regard to user experience. Rapid yet tightly budgeted development is key to deploying on-demand services and applications with limitless scaling capabilities.

To unlock this value while incorporating the necessary security for compliance obligations is an enormous undertaking. Included below are use cases and benefits that can be achieved.

  • Cost effective secure Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC)
  • Identity, privacy, and elevated security solutions
  • Authentication, authorization, and rights deployment
  • Continuous deployments and integrations 
  • Consistent instruction sets for provisioning 
  • Multi-language application support
  • Dynamic scaling characteristics
  • Quickly build and iterate

The remaining sections highlight three new API methods, including basic use case examples.

Users API

The race to standardize the identity industry has led to a wide range of protocol implementations. For instance, OAUTH2, SAML2, OpenID, and many other authentication options are just scratching the surface. In a previous article, Decentralized Identity (DID), we discussed the risks and implications involving centralized credential systems, and solutions being created using Nexus.

Currently, blockchain authentication relies on at least 256 bits of entropy and disciplined management practices to prevent disastrous consequences. A recent study has shown that over 20% of Bitcoins have been lost since the network was launched. Fortunately, the days of losing blockchain access via cryptographic compromise and private key mismanagement are finally over. 

The User API is synonymous with Signature Chains (SigChains) that provide a familiar authentication mechanism with elevated security while removing the burdens of private key management. SigChains enable the use of cryptographic techniques to authenticate users into a system removing the need for various protocols and third-party products. When the API generates a DID, the genesis identifier creates a unique hash of this username defined on blockchain. The below table outlines the methods currently available for the User API.

Crypto API

The Crypto API provides the ability to manage public-private key pairs, encrypt/decrypt data, and the associated public key hashes. These are held in the SigChain crypto object register that can be used internally and externally by third-parties. The nine named keys in the crypto object register are: auth, lisp, network, sign, verify, cert, app1, app2, and app3. This register is generated automatically as part of the genesis transaction when a SigChain is created via the User API. 

Each entry in the crypto register is a 256-bit hash of the public key for an asymmetric key pair. The scheme used to create the key pairs is configurable, supporting both Brainpool and FALCON. This API provides numerous options for secure development of Apps and DApps alike. Additionally, third-party plug-ins, modules, and products are rendered unnecessary using SigChain capabilities.

As a use case example, a practitioner provides a medical scan to a patient in a PDF. A hash of the data can be associated with a SigChain pointing to the original file. This association provides unequivocal proof of ownership when linked to the DID. However, this could be susceptible to attacks if copied and another asset linking on blockchain is created. To mitigate, the timestamp and nonce from the rightful owner must be verified, preventing document forgery. The following table includes the Crypto API methods:

P2P API

The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) API allows for encrypted and authenticated end-to-end communications between users or DApps. By utilizing a username or genesis ID, a self-signed certificate, authenticated by the Crypto object register, can be used to open a secured connection directly to a node. This negates the need for a Certificate Authority (CA) to combat Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) attacks. A role usually reserved for secure proxies or advanced firewalls, can now be achieved with the TAO Framework. Additionally, this API also provides the ability to transmit encrypted data on the network. 

The P2P connection request contains the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the sender and is broadcast over the network to locate the authenticated peer. If the connection request is accepted, a socket will be opened. Due to the nature of the connection, a requesting node must be internet-accessible from the peer with a public IP address or have port forwarding enabled on the Internet Service Provider (ISP) router. This is a short-term requirement until the Location Identifier Separation Protocol (LISP) and Re-encapsulating Tunnel Router (RTR) have completed development. Included below are the API methods:

The Nexus TAO Framework is an indispensable architecture for all types of developers, from blockchain DApp creators, to traditional web designers and beyond. It is important to remember that all sessions are authenticated, enabling user control and traceability, thus eliminating systemic problems inherent to the internet. This cultivates designs that can effectively eradicate spoofing, snooping, and other risks commonly associated with the interconnected world of today.

ICON ($ICX) Charters Course to Blockchain Supremacy

by
ICON

ICON

ICON

ICON (#ICONProject), the South Korean blockchain startup, is one of the few blockchain companies that has risen from the ashes of the crypto bubble of 2018. It has demonstrated a strong commitment to leading the charge towards realizing a blockchain-powered future.

ICON has a solid plan, through which it plans to become a central pillar that will support blockchain integration in many facets of society and the economy. However, we must look back a bit to understand the gravity of ICON’s plans and its journey ahead.

1. THE ROAD SO FAR

THE DEVELOPMENT OF BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY

The concept of blockchain technology was introduced alongside Bitcoin, which was the first cryptocurrency. Back then, the digital currency cast a huge shadow on blockchain and everything else as it scaled the heights of the brave new world. However, later, it started to become clear that blockchain represented a key component in the dawn of the decentralized world. The realization that blockchain would bring about many efficiencies was the foundation on which companies like ICON and many others were born.

BLOCKCHAIN IS NOT JUST A TECHNOLOGY THAT SUPPORTS CRYPTOCURRENCIES

Blockchain technology, otherwise known as decentralized ledger technology, allows cryptocurrencies to exist and to be sent from one crypto wallet to another. One can view it as a highway for digital currency, but it goes beyond that description. It is also a highway for rapid and secure transfer of data, as well as storage. These characteristics are the underpinnings that support the development of solutions that leverage the power of blockchain to achieve unparalleled efficiencies in various sectors. ICON aims to spearhead the development of such solutions that tap into decentralized technology.

ICON’S PURSUIT OF OPPORTUNITIES THAT BLOCKCHAIN HAS TO OFFER

Now that the public eye has shifted towards Bitcoin and identifying the advantages that it has to offer, ICON and other blockchain startups are kicking their developments into high gear so that they can demonstrate the capabilities of the technology.

Most of the opportunities that ICON is pursuing are government projects. Fortunately, the South Korean government is open to exploring blockchain’s potential and so it has vowed to invest heavily in the segment. The Korea Internet and Security Agency (KISA) recently announced that ICT and the Ministry of Science had identified 10 blockchain projects that they will fund in 2020. Each project will receive roughly KRW 600 million, which means that the Korean government plans to invest a total of KRW 6 billion in blockchain projects. This is exciting because it means the South Korean government is confident in blockchain technology.

The 10 blockchain projects include:

  1. The Ministry of Health and Welfare’s welfare management system.
  2. Jeju’s system that will manage the life cycle of electric batteries.
  3. Sejong City’s autonomous vehicle platform.
  4. Busan’s smart quality control system for sewer water.
  5. The National Highway Authority’s mutual trust system.
  6. Gangwon Province’s chronic disease management system.
  7. The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety’s platform for food safety data.
  8. South Gyeongsang Province’s blockchain project for regional public service based on DID.
  9. The Rural Development Authority’s management system for crop production and distribution.
  10. The country’s police force digital management system for handling evidence.

Another indicator that South Korea is going full speed with digital currencies and blockchain is the fact that the country will host a cryptocurrency conference in February 2020. Interestingly, it has not been without controversy because the UN issued a warning claiming that attending the event might be considered an international sanctions violation.

2. PUSHING THE BLOCKCHAIN ADOPTION AGENDA

ICON

ICON has made it clear that it is aggressively pushing forward with its plan to facilitate blockchain adoption. It highlighted some of those plans in the development roadmap update that it released in December 2019. The adoption agenda aims to provide various blockchain-based solutions that can be adopted to bring efficiencies into various sectors.

The adoption agenda has already started attracting key players. For example, the ICONLOOP’s practical solution called BROOF, which is a certificate issuance service, has already been adopted by the Pohang University of Science and Technology to facilitate the issuance of diplomas. This solution will digitize the diploma issuance process and allow easy certificate searches by employers. It will also discourage the existence of fraudulent certificates. It is one of the use cases that demonstrate how blockchain-based solutions can be integrated into society.

ICONLOOP also revealed recently that it secured anti-spam deals with the Korea Internet and Security Agency, Financial Supervisory Service (FSS), and 15 banks. The deal will allow the partners to use an ICONLOOP blockchain solution called Chain Sign as well as a Cyberdigm.

Chain Sign, just like its name suggests, is a platform for contract signing, while Cyberdigm is aimed at contract management. These developments leverage smart contracts technology, and they are aimed at bringing blockchain-based digital contracts into the mainstream. ICON is not limiting itself as far as its blockchain expansion pursuits are concerned. It has a lot planned out for various segments or industries, as seen below.

3. WHAT HAS BEEN HOLDING BACK THE MARKET?

THE SPECULATIVE TRENDS

Blockchain technology has been heavily associated with cryptocurrencies, and people did not recognize or were not aware of its capacity outside the scope of digital currencies during its early stages of the technology. Unfortunately, this also meant that the technology was overshadowed by cryptocurrencies, which were primarily driven by speculation. It stood in the way of progress as industries and critical market influencers held back the technology.

CAUTIOUS OUTLOOK

The speculation in the market hurt blockchain since it promoted caution in the market. It was also still a relatively new technology, and that meant that industries were not willing to invest in a technology that might affect their performance. Industries prefer to invest in technologies that are tested and proven.

ICON’S TIMING

All good projects must get the timing right; otherwise, they fail. ICON was waiting for the right time to execute its strategy. Now that the world has started to understand what blockchain is and its potentially positive impact, there has been an increased uptake of blockchain projects. It means that the atmosphere is changing in favor of the technology and so it is now the right time to make moves.

4. SURVIVING OR THRIVING AFTER THE CRYPTO BUBBLE POPPED

HOW THE CRYPTO BUBBLE WOULD HELP SEPARATE THE JOKERS FROM REAL INDUSTRY CHANGERS

There were many blockchain projects and startups that promised to be the next big thing at around the same time that the cryptocurrency market was booming. However, most of them seem to have failed along when the crypto bubble popped. This means that most of the projects that were not serious were automatically pushed out, and only those that had robust strategies remained. ICON is among those that are still going strong.

COMPARISON TO THE DOT-COM ERA

The cryptocurrency bubble has been compared with the dot-com era because of the boom that came with the dawn of the internet age. Many startups were launched back then, each attracting investors with their enticing growth plans. However, some did not make it as the proverbial bubble popped, but it did not end there. The internet has now developed into something that is far from what was initially imagined. And most of all, it is quite a lucrative technology. Blockchain is also seen as such, and it has also demonstrated similar trends to the initial years of the dot-com era.

5. ICON’S APPROACH TO THE MARKET AND WHY IT WILL LIKELY SUCCEED

ICON’S DEVELOPMENTS

ICONbet is one of the most notable developments from ICON. It is a DApp that is designed for the gaming industry, and it is based on ICON’s protocol. The blockchain startup expressed excitement over the growth of ICONbet, especially due to its fast-paced growth in terms of transaction volumes. It has become the leading DApp on the blockchain startup’s network. It gives a glimpse of a possible future where decentralized applications might be the norm, and that is where ICON wants to steer towards.

ICON’S INTEGRATION INTO THE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC FABRICS

ICON’s strategy seems to be focused on segments that directly touch on societal trends. For example, its partnership with POSTECH enables the issuance of certificates and diplomas digitally and is a direct advantage to society. ICONbet also highlights how digital contracts can be used to improve aspects that are already deeply rooted in society, such as gambling. ICON aims to lead the migration towards digital contracts, which will offer a lot of efficiencies while saving resources such as time and money since contracts will be executed in a matter of minutes, if not seconds. This expedited and secure approach will provide efficiency. ICON can integrate this technology into different areas, and this is something that it plans to pursue.

ICON TO INTEGRATE WITH CHAINLINK

ICON also plans to widen its scope through high-profile collaborations such as its recent partnership with Chainlink, which is one of the top oracle solutions. Oracles facilitate interactions between smart contracts and data, as well as systems that are not in the native blockchain. In other words, Chainlink makes it possible for developers to create custom communications between smart contracts and off-chain systems.

If you are wondering why the partnership is essential, it is because it provides a real-world working scenario of cross-blockchain operations. For example, it will enable the use of the ICON app to access data from different blockchains. One can make a payment on one blockchain after a transaction goes through on a separate blockchain. The partnership will make it easier to develop ICON DApp-based financial products, with ICX in the middle of it all.

ICON’S APPROACH TO INTEROPERABILITY

Interoperability has been a recurrent subject in the blockchain community. There are many blockchain projects out there, and existing in a fragmented state would present other issues, especially to users. Fortunately, developers came up with the idea of interoperability to facilitate communication between different blockchains and blockchain-based solutions. ICON developed an interoperability solution called blockchain transmission protocol (BTP).

BTP VERSION 1.0

ICON revealed in its Roadmap update that it would release its BTP version 1.0 plans soon, probably at around the same time as the launch of the BTP version 0.5. ICON plans to commercialize BTP technology within the first half of 2020. The technology will facilitate interoperability between public and private blockchains. The blockchain startup is pleased with its progress so far.

The blockchain startup released a block structure upgrade at the end of 2019, and this added BTP capabilities. Some of those capabilities include allowing heterogeneous chains to facilitate cross-chain communication. The company has been working on bringing more stability to the feature. It had even halted the feature briefly after it was affected by a leader node initializing bug, but that problem was quickly resolved.

MOBILE STAKING

ICON’s October Roadmap update revealed that the blockchain startup had already completed development work that will enable mobile staking on its network. The update, however, announced that the developed features had not been released because they were going through quality assurance. ICON also noted that it planned to release the features in a matter of weeks, and sure enough, they were released by December.

ICONLOOP LAUNCHES MYID WITH PARTNERS IN MAJOR ECONOMIC SEGMENTS

2020 is shaping up to be an exciting year not only for ICON but also for the parent that is responsible for its developments, ICONLOOP. The latter plans to launch MyID, its blockchain identification service sometime this year. It already launched MyID Alliance in November 2019, which attracted more than 39 partners from different economic segments, including the manufacturing industry, e-commerce, securities, and finance, among others.

The partners will use MyID to incorporate a trusted decentralized ID into their ecosystems. ICONLOOP has three primary mission targets that it hopes to achieve together with MyID partners.

  • Business-focused: to facilitate business expansion through trust and financial sector authentication.
  • User-focused: to solve inconveniences suffered by users and also to develop use cases.
  • Globalization-focused: MyID aims to achieve globalization through its business model, which aims to connect and bring the IDs of countries and also to help them expand.

ICONLOOP’s Chief Financial Officer Jay Kim is the current business director in charge of MyID. He pointed out in a statement that ICONLOOP was excited about the launch of MyID because it is a step forward towards achieving a digital ID ecosystem that is based on blockchain technology. Mr. Kim also added that the partnership features both industries in the financial sector and those that are not of the financial sector.

The firms that have partnered with the project have joined because MyID Alliance is the first consortium that is ready to push digital ID into the mainstream. It makes a lot of sense that financial institutions, insurance firms, and security companies would jump on board since MyID is highly secure. It also offers a superior solution for authentication. It is so safe that Korea’s Financial Services Commission deemed it the only identification verification system that can be applied across the financial sector in South Korea.

MYID’S FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT

So far, things are looking good for MyID, considering that it has already attracted several partners. However, ICONLOOP hopes that more firms will jump on board in the future. The blockchain startup estimates that it will have more than 100 partners by the end of the year and over 250 partners by 2022.

ICONLOOP hopes that MyID will attract significant companies such as Samsung. This is not a far-fetched scenario, considering that the authentication platform is quite robust. Major companies will likely want a piece of the pie. The involvement of significant firms would be a massive deal for ICONLOOP because it would help boost MyID’s popularity and contribute towards the agenda of doing it a global service.

ICONLOOP would get a leg-up if significant companies such as Samsung were to become MyID partners. Such a move would encourage investors to jump on board, thus providing more resources not only for MyID but for ICONLOOP’s other blockchain-based projects. Hopefully, this would lead to a ripple effect where those projects would also get global recognition.

6. HOW CAN INVESTORS LEVERAGE ICON’S GROWTH?

ICON’s aggressive growth has been paying off nicely. For example, the blockchain startup reported 5 percent weekly growth after decentralization compared to just 0.75 percent growth before decentralization. The startup’s network has been gaining more traction and currently has more than 80 validators. Meanwhile, ICX is recognized by 31 exchanges and cryptocurrency wallets. This data gives a glimpse of the growth opportunities now in the market.

To understand how to leverage these opportunities, we must first dive deeper into some of the platform’s operations. ICON uses a reward system and staking to power its Incentives Scoring System (IISS) ecosystem. The latter encourages activities and new developments on the network. ICON believes that it currently has the best Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPOS) blockchain.

The reward system and the growth that ICON has been enjoying have been generating value for ICX, which the platform’s native token is. For example, it has a 9.7 percent yield rate, making it an ideal cryptocurrency to stake. Investors should consider investing in ICX, especially since the developments provide organic growth. JH. Kim, the CEO of ICONLoop, is optimistic about future growth, especially as decentralization continues to spread far and wide. So, investors should act now if they wish to enjoy the benefits of the anticipated growth well into the future.

7. SUMMARY

ICON’s roadmap and developments, as well as ICONLOOP’s other blockchain projects, highlight the steps that the blockchain startup has been making to lay the foundations of a blockchain-based future. ICONLOOP is slowly carving a name for itself as one of the most influential blockchain startups thanks to its world-class solutions, and soon enough, its popularity will be global. So far, the groundwork has focused heavily on developing the infrastructure as the solutions that can be adopted by multiple industries. ICONLOOP is carefully arranging the pieces of the blockchain supremacy puzzle together, and the picture is rapidly coming together.
