Relaunched, revamped minerstat is ready to take the lead in enterprise-level crypto mining management

0

TALLINN, Estonia – Crypto mining powerhouse minerstat is excited to announce its comprehensive relaunch, marking a shift in the company’s offerings. They are now proud to offer enterprise-level specialized services aimed at empowering professional-level mining managers—that is, experienced clients who recognize that crypto mining is fast maturing into a highly-competitive industry that warrants sophisticated tools and support. With a carefully-considered redesign of its web portal and software offerings across the board, minerstat is poised to deliver robust and flexible crypto mining solutions at the enterprise level.

New features

Crypto mining is a complex and demanding business, and minerstat is proud to offer sophisticated services to streamline, monitor and manage the mining process. With this in mind, the company developed its relaunched platform in close collaboration with mining managers in order to deliver functional and empowering solutions. The centrepiece of the relaunch is minerstat’s complete revamping of its suite of tools, including its online dashboard. The details of the update include:

  • Dashboard: new UI with more functionalities.
  • Linux mining OS: rewritten and adjusted for new dashboard.
  • Windows node: new UI, rewritten, and adjusted for new dashboard.
  • ASIC node for Mac, Windows, Linux, and Raspberry Pi: new UI, rewritten and adjusted for new dashboard.
  • Monitoring software installed direct on ASIC: entirely new approach for those that don’t want to run a node on a separate computer to monitor their ASIC machines.
  • iOS and Android mobile apps: new UI, rewritten, and adjusted for new dashboard.

Comprehensive solutions

“Crypto mining is hastily maturing to the enterprise level and for managing mining operation you won’t only need a great software, but also a skilled mining manager,” minerstat CEO George K. said. “I believe minerstat will play its role in this transformation.”  

While minerstat offers basic mining tools such as worker monitoring and managing, remote reboot and restart, detailed statistics, and an alerting system, it also offers a suite of additional features that make the complex daily demands of crypto mining simple, elegant and easier to manage than ever.

A few examples:

  • The control room that allows a farm to organize the workers to visually fit the actual establishment and can be used as a heat map.
  • ClockTune for overclocking and undervolting AMD and Nvidia GPUs.
  • Profit switch that works on both direct coin mining and larger multialgo pools, such as NiceHash, Mining Pool Hub, Zpool, Block Masters, Mining Dutch, and Blazepool.
  • Smart triggers to take action as soon as the system detects a problem.
  • Balance monitoring on major exchanges, wallets and pools.
  • Scheduler to override mining settings to mine something different for a selected period of time in the day. This feature can be used as a way to receive a fair mining manager’s fee.
  • Multi-user access for team members and separate accounts for customers that can be overseen by mining managers.
  • White label solutions that are perfect for all cloud mining and colocations/rig hosting businesses.

The future of mining

Looking ahead, minerstat’s long-term plan is to establish a full-scale mining ecosystem beyond its current platform, with support for a wide range of mining software, pools and data to make mining managers’ job easier and more efficient.

With this vision in mind and its comprehensive and sophisticated updates ready for action, minerstat is poised to become the number-one enterprise-level SaaS platform for mining management by January 2019.

About minerstat

Founded in December 2016, minerstat was the first publicly available system to use fully remote managing techniques while keeping mining rigs secure and safe.

They are now on a mission to keep delivering a secure, advanced and reliable software suite for crypto mining management and monitoring, and to retain their position as trusted leaders in the emerging mining industry.

BITTO launches world’s first cryptocurrency exchange with ERC20 Proof of Stake

0

Token holders can transact all cryptocurrencies on single exchange and reap passive income benefits from staking

London, UK, 10/17/2018 With its launch on November 30, BITTO [https://www.bitto.tech/] will be the first public cryptocurrency exchange to validate crypto transactions using the Proof of Stake protocol to offer its customers passive income from staking.

The current means of validating most cryptocurrency transactions is through mining, or Proof of Work. “Industry dialogue on Proof of Stake (POS) vs. Proof of Work is clear on the advantages of POS,” says Nic Chin, Co-Founder & CEO of BITTO Exchange. “POS is a far more sustainable and cost-efficient approach compared to the computationally-intense Proof of Work that requires enormous electric power and specialist processing.”

BITTO is designed to provide customers a secure system for all their cryptocurrency transactions, along with a unique opportunity to acquire a share in the vital infrastructure which underpins the emergent cryptocurrency industry.

In less than five years, the variety of cryptocurrencies offered to investors increased from 40 to 1,2732 – a 3,083 per cent increase. “Owning a part of the exchange infrastructure will enable our customers to benefit from this growth without assuming risks of any individual coin,” states Chin. “BITTO customers can earn passive income from staking with only a computer and a Ethereum based cryptocurrency wallet.”

The BITTO token is the primary value transfer medium for users in the BITTO community. Tokens can be purchased now at http://www.bittoexchange.com/   to receive pre-launch benefits. Token holders can start to receive passive income from staking as of the September 18th 2018.

About BITTO: On the BITTO exchange users can buy, sell or trade any cryptocurrency through a single point of access. The exchange offers a convenient user-centric platform that includes staking, signal trading, a referral program, smart trading, ICO discounted rates, safe security for trading and deposits in local currencies.

COINSCHEDULE AND TRECENTO BLOCKCHAIN CAPITAL TO LAUNCH A JOINT FUND TO INVEST IN THE MOST PROMISING AND CREDIBLE TOKEN OFFERINGS AND EQUITY-BASED BLOCKCHAIN PROJECTS

0
COINSCHEDULE AND TRECENTO

17th of October 2018 – OXFORD, UK and GENEVA, SWITZERLAND: Coinschedule, the British blockchain portal, and Trecento Blockchain Capital, an asset management company, have announced today the launch of a joint investment fund called “Coinschedule Trecento BC Fund”, which will invest in early stage blockchain companies including token offerings and equity-based deals.

Coinschedule was founded in 2016 by two blockchain early adopters. With the help of scientists from the University of Oxford, Coinschedule has developed a unique algorithm called Coinschedule TrustScore. TrustScore is able to assign a credibility score to each blockchain project based on dozens of data points.

The company found that blockchain projects that score highly with the TrustScore algorithm tend to perform better in the long run.

The joint fund will use this information together with Coinschedule’s blockchain expertise to help select the best potential investment projects. Trecento Blockchain Capital’s team will then assess the opportunity making the decision to invest.

Launched in 2018, Trecento Blockchain Capital is an asset management company fully dedicated to Blockchain investing. The company is part of the Trecento Group, founded in 2012 by Alice Lhabouz, that already owns Trecento Asset Management (managing circa $200 million on behalf on institutional investors). It is formed by a team of investment professionals and experts in technology and blockchain.  Trecento Blockchain Capital’s aim is to generate significant returns for their investors by investing in the best blockchain projects with a long-term view, within a compliant and regulated legal framework.

“We are very excited to partner with such a young yet successful team that can bring all their expertise and best practices from the traditional financial markets into the blockchain world”, said Alex Buelau, CEO of Coinschedule.

Alice Lhabouz, founder at Trecento Blockchain Capital, said “We are looking forward to help fund incredible blockchain projects at a time where many promising teams are finding it hard to raise capital. Partnering with Coinschedule will enable us to find the needle in the haystack of blockchain projects.”

This fund has the ambition to provide institutional investors, eager to benefit from the amazing blockchain business opportunities, with a regulated and professional investment fund.

The two companies are working closely together and the Coinschedule Trecento BC Fund will be launched in the coming weeks alongside with a new fund tracking section on the Coinschedule Portal.

Canadian Cloud Mining Powerhouse Nuvoo Revolutionizes Cloud Mining Industry with a Month-to-Month Contract and 50% Cheaper Rates!

0
Nuvoo

Nuvoo, the largest crypto ecosystem mining company in Canada, is now taking giant strides towards emerging as the world’s leading platform for convenient and profitable cryptocurrency mining. The company has just released a new bitcoin contract that will completely change the game for the industry, with a month-to-month concept based on a 24-month payment for an open-ended contract.

October 16, 2018

As one of the world’s most trusted crypto mining companies, Nuvoo proudly announces the release of a new bitcoin contract that promises to have a significant impact in the global crypto space. With these new contracts, backed by the latest ASIC technology, Nuvoo has already started offering a low pricing structure to challenge the likes of Genesis, Hashflare, and other competitors. Nuvoo is pleased to say that their Bitcoin mining rates are currently 50% cheaper, including a lower maintenance fee, compared to Genesis Mining.

With the launch of this new contract, Nuvoo becomes the first company ever to offer customers the benefit of making payments in up to 24 installments. For example, someone purchasing a $3000 contract from Nuvoo will enjoy the privilege of paying just $125 each month, spread out over 24 months. This creates an opportunity for Nuvoo customers to get larger contracts for lower monthly payments, and it allows the market to grow in a major way.

With a bitcoin mining system that is ideally suited for beginners, Nuvoo offers a smart and easy way for crypto hobbyists to take their first steps into the crypto world. At the same time, their system has been used to great effect by crypto experts and entrepreneurs to operate large-scale mining farms. As part of their rapid diversification drive, Nuvoo will soon be launching their own cryptocurrency exchange.

“We have the most advanced platform to manage cloud mining activity with the most efficient affiliate plan. The time has come for the world to know that Nuvoo is a far more stable crypto mining platform compared to Genesis, tipped by many to be the world’s largest cloud mining company,” said Mr. LeBlanc, the Founder and CEO, Nuvoo. “Now, with our new bitcoin contract in place, our pricing is around 50% less than the price of Genesis mining and the maintenance fee is lower than any competitors’ as a Canadian mining farm.”

Leveraging the excellent infrastructure and favorable climate in Quebec, Canada, Nuvoo currently owns and operates more than ten world-class datacenters catering to thousands of customers around the world. Crypto enthusiasts have put their trust on Nuvoo because they offer one of the safest and most transparent ecosystems for crypto miners. In order to provide the best contract prices to customers, they never make any profit on mining equipment.  The customers buy fixed Hashpower contracts, provided directly from one of the largest state-of-the-art ASIC mining farms owned and operated by Nuvoo.

Unlike other competitors, Nuvoo emphasizes lower mining costs and the use of greener energy. This is possible because a high percentage of electricity in Quebec is generated from hydroelectric dams. The cooling costs are also lower because the region remains significantly cold for a considerable part of the year.

Nuvoo attributes their strong position in the market to the company’s special relationship with energy providers and several municipalities in Quebec, all of whom are key players in managing the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity in the province. In January of this year, Nuvoo was invited to a special event presented by Hydro-Quebec, as a guest panelist in order to represent the blockchain community.

Bitcoin mining contracts from Nuvoo are open-ended, and payouts are generated on a daily basis with the withdrawal limit set at 0.0020 BTC. To provide miners with an idea of the earning potential of each mining plan, there is also an efficient mining calculator on the company’s website provided by Cryptocompare, a neutral third party.

Nuvoo and its parent company are about to launch their own exchange, featuring both fiat-to-crypto and crypto-to-crypto solutions. The company is very excited to finally provide a safe trading ecosystem to their clients.

About Nuvoo:  Nuvoo is a cryptocurrency mining powerhouse that focuses on offering cost-effective solutions to cryptocurrency hobbyists and professionals alike. Their philosophy is to enroll the top leaders in the cryptocurrency industry and to make them available to the community. The company specializes in hosting high-density computer hardware requiring substantial access to both power and cooling.

Bistox: An evolution in value transfer among the cryptocurrency exchanges

0
forexminute

Here’s a strange fact: these days, cryptocurrency exchanges are mostly centralized despite the fact that decentralization is the basis of cryptocurrency tech. Decentralization is the cornerstone of this young technology, and the principle of decentralization provides one of the most important properties of electronic money – the lack of a central point of failure, as well as the inability to ban or take this kind of money away.

So why are today’s crypto exchanges mostly centralized? We’re used to major exchanges with their billion-dollar turnover, and with sacred horror we watch as some of them get hacked, having inconceivable sums of money stolen from user accounts. Sure, large exchanges tend to pay off their debts, but in the world of cryptocurrency the prices can vary greatly, even within a single day. Therefore, the return of the dollar equivalent of the stolen funds after months or even years, as it was the case with Mt Gox, at least disappoints the affected users. And sometimes it leads them to ruin.

Traditionally, decentralization has been associated with the semi-legal aspects of the Internet, such as torrents. No one here guarantees the integrity of the transaction, and all transactions are made by the users at their own risk. But times are changing, and in 2019 a completely new format of cryptocurrency exchange is going to be launched; one that will combine the advantages of both a decentralized and centralized exchange.

Meet Bistox – an advanced, semi-decentralized cryptocurrency exchange that incorporates the NEM blockchain platform and is designed for traders with varying levels of knowledge, whose need is a reliable partner with whom they can trust and get help 24/7.

The company features decentralization technology, which means that it is dividing its resources into parts and operating them in different physical and cloud locations all around the world. The company’s token is called BSX and it will first be sold during the ICO, which will take place in 2 months. Bistox is considered to be one of the most secure crypto exchange platforms due to a number of technological innovations that the company leaders are about to introduce into the workflow.

Bistox incorporates the following features that create the unique experience that one has never had with other exchanges. These features are the social trading system, cross-chain transactions and decentralized swaps, atomic swaps, fraud detection and prevention, risk management, escrow transactions, key recovery services, and 24/7 customer support.

 

Powered by NEM technology

Bistox is powered by NEM – the world’s first “Smart Asset” blockchain built with businesses in mind.

“When choosing the platform, we took into account the speed of transactions, the scalability and the safety of procedures”, – says Bistox’s CTO, German Sidorenko. “Therefore, we selected the flexible and fast NEM platform, that addressed and resolved all the limitations and drawbacks other blockchain systems had.”

NEM is valued for its speed and scalability, as well as for the revolutionary consensus mechanism program Pol and Supernode, which guarantees the unlimited growth of the public blockchain with no impact on the bandwidth.

NEM is a company that was the first crypto enterprise in the world to create and launch the Smart Assets option. Smart Assets are a type of currencies that represent fixed physical goods and intangible assets that might be purchased in other currencies. Smart Assets are operated by smart contracts, which are the computerized algorithms. NEM is currently providing every Internet user with a platform for using the existing smart contracts trade functions and creating new exchanges that would be powered by NEM technology.

A brand new set of features

Bistox also has some unique technology facilities to offer. Bistox is introducing a brand new engine called D.A.N.N.I. (Decentralized Artificial Neural Network Integration), an absolute innovation on the crypto exchange market. The Bistox team is backed by leading the experts from the NEM Foundation – the chief adviser Nels Valero and Solution Architect & Technical Trainer Shin Tatt Wong – who are about to disrupt the industry by building a semi-decentralized exchange.

D.A.N.N.I., a personal self-learning trade assistant that analyzes market data in real time, provides forecasts and solutions based on the vast experience of professional traders. With D.A.N.N.I. one can test his/her strategy on real historical data while getting suggested trading strategies based on behavior of professional traders as well. The system provides its users with alerts and notifications to improve their risk management. They get targeted news feeds for an accurate fundamental and historical data analysis to get briefed on project market conditions.

Technical support is a weak point of almost every exchange. Sometimes, users have to wait for a few days, or even weeks, for a response to their ticket. Bistox`s support consists of well trained specialists, who are available 24/7 along with world’s best Internet security experts.

The ways of obtaining profit

  • Trading fees – While conducting any payments on the Bistox crypto exchange platform, customers would be charged fees for the participation. Any of the payments that would be conducted in BSX would be offered a sufficient discount on the fees – up to 50% for the first year, and down to 10% for the fifth year of trade.
  • Listing fees – Any new project that would be registered on the Bistox platform would be charged a special fee for being listed. In the coming years, it would bring sufficient profit to the company as well as raise additional funds that would later be used for providing opportunities to the listed projects and involved companies.
  • Withdrawal fees – Once a person or a corporate enterprise wants to remove the money from the Bistox electronic wallet, he/she would be charged a withdrawal fee. Those fees would be invested in the further development of the company, and the earned data would help to monitor the rate of withdrawing cash from the platform.
  • Margin trading fees – Those traders who would be involved in marginal trade and would consequently have the margin account would have to pay the interest rate. The interest rate would be stated and controlled by the Bistox company. The marginal trade on the Bistox platform would allow the client to process more efficient trades.
  • Social trading fees – Social trading would help novice traders to feel as if they were experienced traders. This would give an opportunity for traders to learn from the most successful traders of the Exchange, who made their trades public. The economic model is set to allow both sides to earn and garner profits.
    A top-ranked trader would be able to share his portfolio and trades to the public. A user could follow the top-ranked trader on the list and turn on the “mirror” trading button to copy trades equivalent in percentage. The system would automatically charge a commission fee in case of a profitable deal and split it between the Exchange and trader.

Bank Crypterium makes the fastest cryptocurrencies transfer in the world

crypterium

Startup Crypterium, ran by former UK Visa CEO, challenges classic banks by introducing its new feature that allows its users to transfer any amount of cryptocurrency using not the complicated wallet addresses, but simply the recipient phone number.

Former Visa CEO’s startup runs the fastest crypto transactions in the world

Blockchain based fintech startup Crypterium challenges classic banks by introducing its new feature that allows its users to transfer any amount of cryptocurrency using not the complicated wallet addresses, but simply the recipient phone number. Those transfers happen simultaneously, and the company claims it can process up to a million transactions per second solving blockchain’s scalability issue.

Does it mean the first truly user friendly crypto solution has arrived, and we’re witnessing the Netscape moment for the whole industry? Marc O’Brien, who has held the position of CEO of Visa UK for six years, to then become a key advisor to Revolut, Britain’s first digital bank unicorn, bets the house that it did.

Going Mainstream

Almost all blockchain applications are not user-friendly. Tech-savvy people have created them for other tech-savvy people, and those solutions are still very confusing for both businesses and consumers who are not as computer literate.

Former Visa UK CEO Marc O’Brien has set a goal of bringing the crypto industry mainstream and making it more user friendly. “We’re on our way to the 21st century’s “Netscape moment”, the day when a California startup’s eye-popping market debut illuminated the World Wide Web for millions of people, otherwise only vaguely familiar with its potential and promise,” – he explains, mentioning that his own startup, Crypterium, “makes buying, selling and spending of cryptocurrency in everyday life as easy as possible, and that’s what will bring the next billions of people to using crypto.”

Problems unsolved

There are two key problems all crypto holders are facing today, while trying to transfer coins and tokens to each other. First of all, you can get confused with the wallet address. This is how they look like – 0xc5b133a52145990313915612bd732f059330287f – so getting confused is really easy. And once you do, you never get your money back.

There are also special hacker apps, such as CryptoShuffler, that change the address of the wallet while it is being copied. So in the “Send to the wallet” field, you enter the thief’s wallet number.

The second problem is that any transaction takes a while. If we are talking about Ethereum, it could be minutes, if it is Bitcoin – a transaction may take hours. When the blockchain networks are overloaded, transactions may take days.

Solution is on its way

Crypterium is aiming to solve both problems. There is no need to copy the recipient’s wallet address. You just need to know his or her phone number. Send crypto to your mom, your friend, your ex-girlfriend in France. They will get money even if they don’t have any crypto wallets. Once the transaction is processed, they’ll get an SMS with a link to get their crypto with some very clear instructions on what they can do with it. For example, they can use their newly acquired Bitcoin to top up their mobile phones.

What is even more great, the transaction of any cryptocurrency takes seconds. This has become possible because all transfers are done off-chain. When the user wants to spend the coins externally, the money is withdrawing from the sender’s wallet inside Crypterium. While not spent, all the transactions are written in the system, make the transfer the fastest of all.

“We have analyzed the most popular crypto wallets in the market, and none of them offer anything like it, though it sounds so exciting,” O’Brien says.

Time will tell, if crypto transactions will become more popular than the payments with Visa and Mastercard, but this solution is for sure one big step towards global crypto popularization.

trade.io Launches Unique, Community-Led Crypto-to-Crypto Exchange

trade.io

New innovative exchange backed by a $50 million liquidity pool providing revenue sharing on a daily basis opens its doors to the marke

Lugano, Switzerland – 23rd July 2018 – trade.io, the next-generation blockchain-based financial trading platform, has officially launched its one-of-a-kind, highly customizable crypto-to-crypto exchange which will initially offer the following tradable instruments: BTC (Bitcoin), BCH (Bitcoin Cash), ETH (Ethereum), LTC (Litecoin), TIO (TradeToken).

The company has been building out its exchange, with significant input from the trade.io community of Trade Token (TIO) holders, since finalizing its ICO in January this year, in which over 31 million USD was raised. Since the BETA launch this June, the community of ‘TIOnauts’ have been stress testing the exchange, and have actively contributed towards the development of the platform’s high-end specifications, ensuring a user-friendly exchange with a fully customizable widget-based user interface.

As of today the exchange platform is available to 1,000 pre-selected users, with further release groups to be announced soon. All new registrants will join a waiting list to start trading on a first-come, first-served basis.

Registration to the trade.io Exchange is available here: https://trade.io/exchange

Differentiating itself from other crypto exchanges, the industry’s only fully customizable platform is enclosed with powerful flexibility, allowing traders to create their ideal trading environment in just a few minutes after signing up, without compromising on performance or speed. While initially only cryptocurrency instruments will be offered, other asset classes such as forex, commodities and others will follow in due course, making this exchange a ‘one-stop-shop’ for traders of all experience levels. Additionally, shortly after launch trade.io will also be rolling out leveraged crypto products along with fiat to crypto facilities.

One of the key advantages of the exchange is that unlike competitor exchanges, any downtime during system updates will be completely eliminated. This will help to avoid the loss of trading opportunities for exchange registrants. Furthermore, through the industry’s premiere revenue distribution mechanism, the liquidity pool, TIO holders will enjoy the success of the trade.io platform on a daily basis.

 

trade.io’s CEO Jim Preissler commented on the official launch, “The trade.io Exchange has been designed to give power back to customers by democratizing and disrupting the financial industry. What we are doing here is recapturing revenue and distributing it back to customers. With the help of our team of experts in the FinTech and blockchain sectors, we have created the future of crypto exchange here today.”

Since the closing of its ICO, trade.io has offered a series of airdrops for holders of its cryptocurrency (TIO), consisting of altcoins belonging to upcoming verified, high-potential ICOs. With this range of popular industry leading offerings, plus the development of a rich roadmap consisting of uniquely generous offerings and other company developments, trade.io continues to position itself at the forefront of the crypto market.

trade.io

Wednesday 18th July 2018 Lugano, Switzerland – trade.io, a leading cryptocurrency exchange and innovator of the industry’s leading liquidity pool, today announced that David Hannigan has joined the company as its Chief Dealer. David brings almost 30 years of trading and risk management experience, most notably his position as Senior VP at National Australia Bank, to his new role.

David will lead trade.io’s risk management department, and will be responsible for building out its OTC Desk, allowing for both retail and institutional fiat-to-crypto exchange functionality. Up to 50% of all OTC Desk revenues will be allocated to the forthcoming liquidity pool, which can only be accessed by using trade.io’s utility token, TIO.

trade.io’s CEO Jim Preissler said, “We’re very lucky to have someone with David’s experience lead the risk management team and spearhead our OTC Desk. David has an impeccable track record in trading and risk management, which is invaluable when dealing with the size of deals in the crypto space. It’s not uncommon to have a $10m deal come through the desk multiple times per day.”

With my prior experience in the banking sector, I am cognizant on how profitable an OTC Desk can be. I am thrilled to hit the ground running to provide this service to the trade.io community.”

What are Smart People Investing in Today and Why?

Investing

They say that money can’t buy happiness, but there’s no doubt that it does make the world go round. While many of us rely on traditional 9 to 5 jobs to earn a wage, there are individuals out there with entrepreneurial flair looking for the next big opportunity. Investors have been making money out of potentially valuable commodities since time began, but the nature of investment has evolved. Though real estate and the stock market have generated many a millionaire, and a growing number of punters are hoping for the best when buying lottery tickets online, modern investors are looking for something a little different. Here, we take a look at some slightly quirkier tales of leading lights hoping to turn their passions into profits.

Michael Burry

Many people are aware of Michael Burry as a result of the movie, The Big Short. Starring Christian Bale, the film tells the story of Burry, an investor who made a fortune after bailing on the subprime market long before anybody else had the bravery or insight to make the same call. Burry already had a tale to tell, but perhaps the most interesting thing about him is his decision to invest in a commodity we all require to survive. As the credits roll, the movie reveals that Burry has turned his attention to water. It may seem slightly bizarre to suggest that you can profit from such a basic commodity, but if you think about it, there’s nothing else in the world that we need more than water. Water is not only essential for human life. It is becoming increasingly difficult to source. When demand outstrips supply, prices rise. Burry’s decision comes as water usage increases. We tend to think of water usage as washing the dishes, showering and drinking, but water is utilized in almost every process imaginable, from making a cup of coffee to preparing a steak. You may be shocked to hear that it takes more than 15,000 litres to obtain a kilogram of meat from a cow. With the world’s population increasing, and access to water supplies heavily restricted, it’s not hard to see why Burry has chosen this precious, life-giving liquid.

Richard Branson

Richard Branson is known for building the Virgin empire. Branson has dominated business headlines for many a decade, but his latest venture has turned even more heads than usual. Many of us have an interest in space, but Branson has taken his own passion to the next level. If you watch interviews with the British entrepreneur, it won’t take you long to understand the reason Branson is so keen to launch tourist voyages into the unknown. He is a self-confessed fan of astronomy, and he’s as desperate to travel into space now as he was when he was a starry-eyed kid who spent hours staring up at the skies. Virgin Galactic has been a long time in the making, but it looks like Branson’s blood, sweat, tears, and cash, are about to come good. The budding space traveler, who is currently training to be an astronaut, is hoping to make his first intergalactic trip within a matter of months.

Elon Musk

Elon Musk is a subject of constant press attention and intrigue. A self-made millionaire associated with hugely successful ventures like PayPal, Musk is best known for his association with Tesla. Tesla was established with the aim of creating eco-friendly vehicles. It’s no secret that Musk is passionate about saving the planet, and after he got involved, the company enjoyed unbounded growth. Musk is also making waves with SpaceX. Two decades ago, he knew very little about rockets, planets and space travel, but this was an interest he wanted to pursue. Fast forward to 2018 and SpaceX is launching rockets in partnership with NASA.

There’s a lot to be said for taking relatively safe bets in business, but occasionally, you get those who buck the trend and think outside of the box.

 

trade.io Announces Official Launch Of Its Highly Anticipated, Customizable Crypto Exchange at Simultaneous London Events

0

Friday 29th June 2018, Lugano, Switzerland – trade.io’s CEO Jim Preissler today announced during his keynote speech at the trade.io sponsored, Bloomberg event in London, England, that the Exchange, the flagship product of trade.io, will be launched on July 17th, 2018. The announcement comes after months of anticipation across the crypto world where they have eagerly prepared for the launch of trade.io’s live Exchange, and later its Liquidity Pool.

Pre-registration to the trade.io exchange is available here: https://exchange.trade.io

Today marked a truly special occasion as trade.io celebrated the announcement of the launch with not just one, but two milestone events. The first of which was titled “The Future of Cryptocurrencies”; Bloomberg’s first ever cryptocurrency event. The event was broadcast live to Bloomberg Terminals’ many thousands of daily users and also live-streamed on trade.io’s website. The collaboration with trade.io was an attempt to bridge the worlds of traditional finance with blockchain/cryptocurrency by bringing some of the brightest minds and most innovative thinkers together, for a one-of-a-kind event. This event will be livestreamed on https://trade.io/future-of-cryptocurrencies.

In conjunction with the Exchange launch date announcement, trade.io also hosted a guerrilla coffee campaign, which took place at one of London’s busiest commuter hotspots and financial centres, Canary Wharf station, whereby more than 350,000 people pass through every day.

trade.io believes in constantly exceeding community expectations and today was no exception. Over 13,000 free coffees were served in trade.io branded cups, at the busy London Underground station as well as in 20 independent coffee shops in the City of London. In addition, numerous chocolate coins emulating the company’s cryptocurrency, the Trade Token (TIO), were distributed across various London venues, and both these and the coffee cups offered an opportunity to register in the company’s popular airdrops campaign.

The company has also made plans to exhilarate the crowds at Canary Wharf Station today, with a surprise flash mob of dancers dressed as astronauts. This is being live-streamed on the company facebook page www.facebook.com/trade.io

Global press were also present at both of these uplifting events, in order to disseminate footage of interviews and other key events on international television and media channels.

 

trade.io‘s CEO Jim Preissler commented on the launch, “We are thrilled to announce the launch of our trade.io Exchange. The community has been eagerly waiting, so it gives me great pleasure to announce that we will finally launch on 17th July. It will be a staggered launch to 1,000 people initially, with future clients to be on-boarded in the days to follow.

Following the BETA version of our Exchange where select members tested the platform, we are confident that we will satisfy the specifications stipulated to us by our community, and look forward to sharing in the successes of our upcoming official Exchange.

The first lucky 1,000 people to experience the trade.io platform, will be contacted via email in the days before the launch.
