What is the best cryptocurrency to invest in right now?

What is the best cryptocurrency to invest in right now?

Traders worry every day about which cryptocurrency to invest in. The crypto market, however, is still difficult to predict. There is no simple answer as to which coins will win the race in 2020.
The guarantee: Bitcoin
Bitcoin will always be a good investment. Satoshi Nakamoto’s invention continues to lead in terms of market capitalization and trade volume. Almost every crypto exchange can trade Bitcoin and it is the cryptocurrency that is used the most.
If you can or just want to invest in a single cryptocurrency, Bitcoin is always a good choice. The first true peer-to-peer currency is still the number 1 cryptocurrencies. So far, there is no indication that Bitcoin will be thrown from the throne in the foreseeable future.
The next Bitcoin Halving will also take place in 2020. This means that fewer coins are distributed during mining. The available amount grows more slowly, so that every single coin becomes more valuable as soon as the demand increases. Many investors expect price increases after halving.
It is not guaranteed that Bitcoin will experience the biggest growth in 2020. But it’s the most stable cryptocurrency to invest so far.
Advantages:
– Strongest market dominance, largest trading volume
– The most widely used cryptocurrency worldwide
– Secure facility
Bitcoin alternatives
Bitcoin clones could also be a safe investment: cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin Gold (BTG), Litecoin (LTC) or Bitcoin SV (BSV). These cryptocurrencies are mostly faster and more technically advanced than Bitcoin, but will not be able to break its market dominance in the foreseeable future.
They have the same purpose: digital means of payment for the Internet. Your prices often move parallel to the Bitcoin price, but can also rise or fall with a time delay. Some of them have the potential to grow faster than their template, but it is not guaranteed.
– Good alternative to diversification
– Potential for big price gains
Binance Coin (BNB)
The Binance Coin (BNB) is the cryptocurrency of the largest exchange in the world: Binance. The Exchange has expanded considerably in recent years and plans to continue doing so in 2020. An investment in the Binance Coin is equivalent to an investment in the Exchange.
The Binance Coin can be used to trade on the cryptocurrency exchange. If you buy cryptocurrencies with her, you get discounts on your purchases. Binance coins therefore have a benefit for every trader. Binance will soon start a decentralized exchange called Binance DEX, on which in turn the in-house cryptocurrency can be used as a means of payment.
That makes the Binance Coin extremely liquid. Shortly after the start of the cryptocurrency, it was able to get a permanent place in the top 10 largest cryptocurrencies on CoinMarketCap. In 2019, the BNB price tripled.
– Extremely liquid cryptocurrency
– Currency on the largest exchange: Binance
– Could already gain good prices
Tron (TRX)
Tron is a blockchain platform from Justin Sun, an important figure in the crypto scene. An independent ecosystem for the entertainment industry is to be created on the platform. Every user should be able to upload their own videos, pictures, music, texts etc. without being dependent on companies like YouTube.
Basically, it’s a smart contract platform, similar to Ethereum (which is also a good investment). Users can upload data, make it available to other users and write their own smart contracts.
Tron now attracts a large number of investors. There is a lot of potential in the project. In 2017, Tron’s price rose from EUR 0.0018 to EUR 0.045. In 2018 and 2019, the cryptocurrency gained more and more ground in the crypto world and is now among the top 15 in terms of market capitalization.

Cryptomarketing in 2020: successful application of strategies from MLM and the beauty industry

Cryptomarketing in 2020: successful application of strategies from MLM and the beauty industry

Cryptomarketing in 2020: successful application of strategies from MLM and the beauty industry
Over the past decade, the crypto-industry has proven to be a unique industry with a specific audience, which requires a no less specific approach. In this regard, in 2020, the advertising activity of crypto companies is significantly different from that to which banks and various financial companies resort. Industry leaders prefer not to rely on traditional online advertising on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. They follow a different path: they work with bloggers (opinion leaders and influencers), rely on MLM marketing referral programs and actively organize various contests and sweepstakes with generous prize pools. The CoinDesk portal claims that crypto marketing this year is strikingly reminiscent of marketing in the beauty industry, and here it is no less effective.

General concept

Michelle Fan, a blogger with a million YouTube subscribers, is using the same techniques to spread skin care life hacks and the idea of financial freedom through bitcoins. Moreover, she assures that the leaders of the crypto industry, like her, use marketing schemes from the beauty industry, even if they themselves do not know about it.
Both areas prefer to use the DTC (Direct to Customer) business scheme, independently creating and then promoting and selling goods / services, working as closely as possible with the community. Sales are built through aggregated retail platforms like Amazon, Etsy and Shopify, or even through accounts in popular social networks.
Industry leaders in developing countries often resort to the latter option, where large sites like Amazon simply don’t work or aren’t popular. For example, Michelle Haber, a bitcoin maximalist from Libya, made it clear in CoinDesk’s comment that social networks and chats are today the most effective way to distribute goods / services in crypto topics. He said that local traders in order to “educate” the audience help buy hardware wallets, selling them through groups on social networks. Buying yourself Trezor or Ledger in another way is often simply impossible.

Work with opinion leaders

Michelle Fan is not the only person from the crypto-community who notices the similarities with the beauty industry. So, Maria Paula Fernandez, who actively uses the services of the DeFi sector and is seriously interested in the topic of skin care, gave the CoinDesk portal a similar comment.
She notes that in both cases, society has become accustomed to relying on the opinion of society itself, rather than trusting the views of the world’s leading media. Therefore, in both sectors, the so-called influencers are very popular — opinion leaders and bloggers who disseminate information among their audience on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok and other social networks, receiving a reward for this.
Crypto-companies very often, like firms from the beauty industry, provide their products to opinion leaders for review and further “instruction” of their subscribers. Maria Paula Fernandez does not see anything shameful in this. Observing the experience of bloggers, subscribers begin to acquire a kind of crypto-education and disseminate the information through the word of mouth. Thus, the crypto-community grows.
The most successful bloggers over time can count on sponsorship from one or another crypto company.
For example, the podcaster Marty Bent, whose show is now funded by Unchained Capital and Square, the developer of Cash App, witnessed this scenario. The latter, by the way, in addition to Bent sponsor also podcast Joe Rogan and rapper Lil B.
Many other large companies, including the Kraken exchange, have resorted to this strategy. They are just as interested in sponsoring reputable content creators who promote products among loyal subscribers. The U.S. exchange sponsors the Reckless VR crypto start-up, founded by Udi Wertheimer for crypto-conferences in virtual reality, and the famous podcast Peter McCormack, who launched his own media brand Defiance last year. Having started his career as a hobby, McCormack turned it into a business of his life, thanks to which he earned about $1 million for 2019.
With all this, working with bloggers is a great opportunity to enter foreign markets. This is understood at Crypto.com, where they use opinion leaders to attract the Russian-speaking and Turkish-speaking community. Does this approach give a result? Judge for yourself: over the past six months, the number of startup users has doubled and currently stands at more than 2 million people.

Referral Bonuses and MLM Marketing

The development of products within the community often turns into MLM marketing strategies, which require the presence of referral bonuses and bonuses “in depth” — favorite schemes of cosmetic brands. They use a multi-level reward system for attracting partners, where you can usually get a bonus not only for personally invited, but also for “friends of friends and their friends”. Thus, opinion leaders who distribute crypto products often receive a portion of the funds that people invited by them will pay for the product / service.
The relevance and effectiveness of the trend is confirmed by the fact that these methods are not shy to use not only crypto start-ups, but also top cryptocurrency companies, widely known throughout the industry. A prime example is SatoshiLabs, a company that manufactures and distributes Trezor wallets. The head of communications, Iva Fizerova, confirmed that she is actively resorting to “affiliate marketing” with bloggers as an alternative to paying them for direct advertising.
No less vivid examples are the largest crypto exchanges Binance and Gemini, which managed to succeed not without the help of referral systems copied from the multi-level marketing campaigns Avon and Mary Kay, which they have been using for decades.
Instagram blogger Chjango Unchained has been earning good bonuses for several months running after posting a referral link to Gemini on her profile. When her subscribers register on the exchange and buy cryptocurrencies worth more than $100, she receives $10 in BTC. According to her, she is doing a good deed. The blogger wants people who are interested in her opinion on digital money to start their crypto path on Gemini, and not, for example, on Coinbase, because the latter charges “crazy commissions”.
Referral system bonuses are a typical phenomenon for many crypto companies, and successful bloggers are happy to use this. A prime example is Michael Gu, known by the pseudonym Boxmining. It has been distributing information about digital money since 2012, having gathered an audience of more than 200,000 subscribers on YouTube and more than 3,500 participants in Telegram chat during this time.
Despite the fact that the manufacturer of hardware wallets Ledger does not sponsor its activities, it places referral links in the video descriptions and collects voluntary donations from subscribers. As you might guess, he feels rather well. At the same time, he emphasized that user activity during the coronavirus pandemic is only growing, especially after YouTube began to put sticks in the wheels of the creators of crypto-content.

Gifts, contests and sweepstakes

Making a small gift is a great way to introduce an audience to a new product. In the cryptocurrency market, this has long been relevant.
Coin creators eagerly carry out airdrops and bounty campaigns, allowing the crypto community to test the new coin. A similar approach is popular in the beauty industry. Samplers of perfumes and branded magazines with smells have led many girls to buy full-fledged versions of the fragrance.
In addition to the cryptocurrency developers themselves, a similar approach is also used by cryptocompanies of a different direction, which cannot conduct airdrops due to their technical features (for example, this is true for manufacturers of hardware wallets). Therefore, they organize more classic contests and sweepstakes. For example, they play a wallet for reposting on social networks or videos published on YouTube.
It is noteworthy that cryptobrands in this area are even more active than cosmetics manufacturers. They work not only with trusted bloggers with many subscribers, but also help to become less “untwisted” users. Therefore, they periodically assist them in organizing draws in order to attract subscribers who could potentially become new customers.
Iva Fizerova from SatoshiLabs confirmed that Trezor manufacturers periodically help users attract new followers through the distribution of gifts. Moreover, this approach brings excellent results. By working with the community this way, they have managed to sell hundreds of thousands of wallets. But most importantly, a reputation of the brand has formed around the product, warmly received by the audience. And this effect is so strong that the company simply does not see the point in spending money on traditional expensive advertising.
Most importantly, despite all the problems of 2020, including the coronavirus pandemic, which seriously hit the global economy and, accordingly, people’s wallets, demand for products did not fall. This approach remains effective, while the percentage of successful conversions in traditional advertising has probably decreased. Fizerova noted that over the past three months they have recorded a steady increase in demand for goods. Moreover, they even had to solve delivery problems, if only the buyers got the desired devices in a timely manner.
A similar approach and results are observed with other manufacturers of hardware wallets. Thus, Rodolfo Novak, co-founder of Coinkite, confirmed the growth in demand for products, despite the pandemic. Working with the community is their main marketing strategy, because it really gives results. Over the past three years, they donated about 50 wallets to YouTube reviewers. Novak is proud that their “users help other users.” According to him, this approach allows you to sell products at a lower price, since the cost of goods does not include high costs for familiar marketing campaigns.

Are marketing strategies effective? More than

The cryptocurrency market relies on marketing strategies that have established themselves in the beauty industry, which in the new field are no less effective. Maximum performance is achieved with a killer combination of all three of the above methods. It’s about when the founders of cryptocompanies themselves become opinion leaders. Just look at Changpen Zhao, the head of Binance, or Justin Sun, the project manager of TRON. Both entrepreneurs are bloggers with a huge army of subscribers and are personally engaged in the promotion of their brands, regularly rewarding their audience with pleasant gifts.
It’s easy to guess why industry leaders rely mainly on this type of marketing. Advertising products in the traditional way is expensive, especially for startups, behind which there are still no attractive products with a good reputation. But more importantly, crypto products are quite complex in themselves, so they often need detailed explanations, which are difficult to implement in the framework of traditional advertising. Agree that selling a bottle of Fanta with a new taste is much easier than a hardware cryptocurrency wallet, especially since most people don’t understand what it is.
On top of that, regular advertising is complicated by the fact that media giants regularly block crypto content.
In such a situation, marketing borrowed from the beauty industry seems to be the most acceptable and most effective option. By focusing their marketing budgets on opinion leaders and working with the community, cryptocompanies achieve the desired result, even taking into account the coronavirus pandemic. The crypto community is getting bigger and stronger every day. But the best part is that this growth cannot be stopped.

Weekly Update — August 30, 2019

Dear Community,
After another exciting week at Ferrum, with the official listing of FRM on Binance DEX, enormous growth on the Social Mining platform in terms of users and quality content, we now invite you “under the hood” of this past week.
Ferrum Network Business Update
To start off, let’s shed some light on the business/marketing/operations side of Ferrum. Within the cryptocurrency space, a day feels like more than 24 hours and time zones are nonexistent. The constant demand for positive news can be challenging, especially in a down market. Nevertheless we remain focused on achieving our goals.
Exchanges
First, the Binance DEX listing on the 26th of August which means FRM tokens issued as BEP-2 tokens can be traded against BNB. We are proud to have achieved this less than a month after our ICO and foresee positive cooperation with Binance in the future.
Our next goal is to list on a 3rd exchange to truly match the current demand for trading options and liquidity. While the listing is confirmed, we are strategizing about the right moment to announce and list.
Social Mining
This industry can feel like a game of chess at times, make the wrong move and suddenly have an entire army of opponents lined up ready to strike. But make the right move, those opponents can change sides and join your team. All analogies aside, we keep a close ear to what our beloved community is saying and do as much as we can to meet and exceed their expectations.
As we’ve seen immense growth on our Social Mining platform, we are delighted to find that our community has been increasingly supporting us. We are nearing 2000 users on the platform and see the content improving every single day. Given the fact that we have 11 months of Social Mining left (with extension likely), it’s exciting to think of what lies ahead.
Ferrum Network Technical Update
We’d like to provide a technical update on he backend of Ferrum and the products within our ecosystem. In particular, we’ve seen demand for additional utility for the FRM token, and we have listened.
Staking Mechanism Preview
We’ve decided to release the staking mechanism that was originally meant for the UniFyre wallet ahead of schedule. Development that was originally planned to be start mid-September is now being actively worked on and progress has been made. Significantly, we wrote a smart contract with the possibility of flexible staking schemes on top of the Ethereum blockchain.
On the front end of the new staking mechanism, we’ll be releasing a straightforward web-based user interface similar to the Token Bridge so people can easily stake their FRM. Although a full featured staking mechanism will be available within the UniFyre Wallet, we’ve decided to release the staking mechanism early to meet current demand.
Token Bridge is Now Live in Both Directions
In addition, our Token Bridge can now swap BEP-2 tokens to ERC-20 tokens in both directions! This allows users to possess FRM in any form desired. Prefer to trade BNB against FRM on Binance Dex? BEP-2 tokens are your friend and you can swap the ERC-20 tokens as you please. If you prefer to trade on Bitmax.io or want to use your tokens for Social Mining, you can swap to ERC-20 token with ease.
We wanted to develop a token bridge that was easy as filling in a simple form and pressing a few buttons. Since many new projects currently follow the same structure of having multiple token-forms, token bridges will become more and more important. We take pride in creating a user-friendly option that can be customized for any project. As further means for increasing FRM utility, we are now actively exploring the idea of partnering with other projects interested in our token bridge.
Kudi Update
As the first product within the Ferrum Network, Kudi is our foothold on the ground. As most of our activities are focused on creating solid techniques and revolutionizing the way we see the financial system, an actual physical product on the ground is our way of creating real-world use cases for our network and utility for the token. The Kudi team has been working extremely hard ever since the launch of the product. While the product is available for both personal use and commercial use, recently the team has been working to increase awareness of Kudi.
Kudi Events and Partners
One way of creating that awareness is partnering up with the Bogobiri Hotel, where we will be hosting three nights of activities filled with arts, music and activities for the hotel’s guests. At the same time, we’ll be inviting potential customers and clients. Those who’ll use the Kudi Exchange when purchasing their tickets will receive a discount, thereby promoting the actual use of the application. Working with hotels was a conscious decision because Kudi’s features, such as instant money transfers, appeal directly to international travelers.
The presence during events across Nigeria is crucial to stimulating the brands’ awareness and user base. In order to stimulate this growth even more, Kudi has partnered with UNWIND Lagos. UNWIND is focusing on young professionals that are eager to be introduced to new techniques during the many networking events hosted by UNWIND. The true meaning and potential of this partnership has yet to be discovered, but it’s a fact that Kudi will be exposed to many possible clients!
In addition to creating more awareness, the developers have been working on upgrading the Kudi app. A lot will be offered with the new upgrade, including the reduction of fees and an exciting new feature that will truly turn your Kudi app into your own personal bank…
What’s Next for Kudi
The entire month of September is filled with networking events such as the previously mentioned Bogobiri Hotel event, The New Atlantic Trade Fair and a networking event in partnership with the Bombastic Lounge. These are all focused on user growth as we continue to improve the app itself.


https://preview.redd.it/8i39ua7fzuj31.png?width=986&format=png&auto=webp&s=ec8676d902d69c51c6beaaf7360de67a048d4219

In addition, the Kudi update is around the corner, which will offer new features and a new look and feel. The team is actively onboarding new customers every single day, while the product itself is developing and improving every single day.
Conclusion
It has been an extremely productive and exciting week. We are happy see more and more activity within our communities. In the near future we’ll be reaching out to local communities to arrange some AMA’s; we’ll be more active on media like Reddit, 4Chan and Bitcointalk to share Ferrum with each and everyone in this industry. We are building something unique, something worth sharing. We can do the building and sharing, but we can’t do it alone.
Join us today on the road to reach each and every goal we have set for ourselves, to the point where we set new goals and run even harder than we have been already!
Very truly yours,
Ferrum Network Team
P.S. from Ian — I want to thank the author of this update, Freek Caron, the leader of our Dutch community and top Social Miner. I think you’ll agree he did an excellent job!

Nexus Business Development Q&A with Alex El-Nemer 30 August 2019

alexelmo [3:01 PM]
Hey @here Ill be around for the next hour or so to answer any questions you have about the UK Embassy and Business development. Alot of people have already sent questions privately so I will answer those first as I imagine many will be similar to others. Fire away!
belgianboy [3:02 PM]
Oke Alex that would be nice
David Walliams [3:02 PM]
How are you Alex?
alexelmo [3:03 PM]
Very well thanks @David Walliams
You?
David Walliams [3:03 PM]
Good thank you. How’s it be going on the business development side?
alexelmo [3:04 PM]
Very well. We've been working hard and its all starting to come together
Ok, heres the first question someone asked and my response
Q1 - What's the typical size of use cases that you talk to - startup/small/medium/large?
A1 - Over the past year we have talked to a large variety of businesses. From some of the largest businesses in the world, to companies looking to start a new business exclusively building on our blockchain technology:
Start ups: Researching which platform to build their new business on (a big decision). The Nexus APIs help here, they differentiate us from blockchains in which a specific coding language needs to be learnt (E.g. Ethereum’s Solidarity).
SMEs: looking into blockchain to see if it can provide operation efficiencies to suit their existing systems
Large: Large Fortune 500 companies - wishing to explore blockchain in a very specific area, or Proof of Concept / pilot deployments. (edited)
Q2 - Are you seeing more inquiries/leads/interest from one size category vs another?
A2 - Not particularly, we talk to as many interesting companies as possible and get a good reception across the board. Most of the companies which we have had discussions with are medium to large sized businesses, as they tend to have a greater capacity to explore innovative technologies such as blockchain. (edited)
CaptainMAD [3:07 PM]
Hi Alex, do Nexus have anything in the pipeline in regards to advertising (besides social media) once main net goes live?
David Walliams [3:08 PM]
wow new business who want to build on nexus exclusively sounds very cool
alexelmo [3:10 PM]
@CaptainMAD Social media will drive a large amount og our outreach. However we are also reaching our to our networks in the media to promote the tritium update and its benefit to the wider blockchain space. We are also exploring PR agency options (edited)
David Walliams [3:10 PM]
is nexus project still engaged with UK pr firm? I think you mentioned them long ago
Márcio [3:11 PM]
@alexelmo Could you tell us in quantitative terms how many projects currently intend to use NXS both publicly and privately?
CaptainMAD [3:12 PM]
@alexelmo Thanks
alexelmo [3:13 PM]
Q3 - What is a pitch deck? What format do you use? What sort of things are included in yours?
A3 - Our first meeting will typically be a presentation, which takes place via Google Hangouts and Slides. The initial Nexus intro presentation discusses the following characteristics of Nexus: speed, scalability, LISP, API integration, digital currency element, security.
These are discussed in comparison to the other major enterprise providers: Hyperledger, Ethereum, Quorum etc…
Márcio [3:14 PM]
@alexelmo In terms of the timeline, when will we actually start to have something built on NXS? How is the case with SoundVaudt? Is this our biggest and most important business case yet?
alexelmo [3:19 PM]
@Márcio Unfortunately we cannot discuss any potential deals, as it could be considered to be done with the intent to affect the price of NXS. If and when a use case is made public via a press release, then we will be able to discuss in detail with you all - assuming our contract with the use case permits.
Márcio [3:19 PM]
ok, thanks
belgianboy [3:24 PM]
How many nda's? How many compagnies talking with? Wich sector you focus thé most on? Wich sector asks Nexus thé most for help with thé blockchain. What are thé internal targets for business development? What's your personal best experience while doing this?
Is there much interest? While Nexus is still unknow, do compagnies know it? And know what thé 3dc can do and everything that is shown in thé zoomcalls?
How do you see thé Future for Nexus and its business development progress?
alexelmo [3:26 PM]
@Dawca_Mocy could you clarify the question a little?
@Márcio The possibility to build anything on live code, until now, has been limited by the main net activation. Currently Dino has built a number of demos in test net to showcase the potential of the Nexus blockchain use cases.
With regards to SoundVault, we still have a great working relationship with them, and continue to explore blockchain applications within the music industry.
Following the release of the main net, businesses will have the opportunity to build on Nexus, and check out the live running code. (edited)
David Walliams [3:29 PM]
I noticed there is a student focused use case demo - did the business development side reach out to any universities about the nexus project?
alexelmo [3:37 PM]
Q4 - How many nda's? How many companies talking with? Which sector you focus the most on? Which sector asks Nexus the most for help with the blockchain.
A4 - The first meeting is an introduction meeting, telling them about Nexus and see if there is interest from the other side. If there is interest, a follow up meeting will be arranged - for this follow up we typically get an NDA signed prior to the meeting. This is to protect the business’ idea, and also any of their sensitive information about say how their internal systems operate and also that they are looking into blockchain.
This NDA essentially means that Nexus cannot state in any medium, the name of the firm, or provide any detailed information on their business practices or details of the use case which they are exploring with us, to any other party. It also protects Nexus - we provide details on the 3DC for example, which is sensitive information which we do not want being shared with other blockchain providers.
As of today, we have signed approximately 50 NDAs with prospective businesses. Essentially this means that we have had a second/third meeting with 50+ different organisations. These organisations are typically based in either the UK or the US, with a few dotted around Europe. To provide a brief overview of the sectors in order of most frequently occurring: Supply chain/logistics tracking, music and IP, consulting, finance, education, insurance and ad-hock.
David Walliams [3:39 PM]
wow that's like 50 days worth of twitter announcements if they all work out :crossed_fingers:
ej [3:44 PM]
This is all very exciting news
belgianboy [3:44 PM]
What is ad-hock?
alexelmo [2 hours ago]
those not in that list
belgianboy [2 hours ago]
Ok thanks!
David Walliams [3:45 PM]
any universities alex?
alexelmo [2 hours ago]
There have been conversations in the education space (as per Q4) (edited)
belgianboy [3:46 PM]
Are those smalle compagnies or multi billion ones?
alexelmo [2 hours ago]
See above Question 1
belgianboy [2 hours ago]
Ok
alexelmo [3:47 PM]
Q5 - Is there much interest in Nexus? While Nexus is still unknown, do companies know it? And know what the 3dc can do and everything that is shown in the zoomcalls?
A5 - Yes, there is a great interest from those who truly understand blockchain technology.
Nexus is still growing in terms of its recognition, but we do see ourselves as a respected player within the enterprise space, much of this has come through positive word of mouth and Blockchain Working Group events here in the UK in which the major players have learned about us and heard of our unique features. We are building a strong reputation in the business community which is a very positive sign.
With regards to the 3DC - the technology is far beyond anything else we have come across, and many businesses agree with this statement. We can happily report that senior tech employees (CTOs) at large companies, have been greatly impressed with the quality and complex depth of Nexus’ technology.
ej [3:51 PM]
Thanks for all this, Alex
ej [3:52 PM]
Excellent work
paulscreen [3:52 PM]
Yup this is gold!!
Kendal Cormany [3:52 PM]
Good job
alexelmo [3:53 PM]
Q6 - What does an initial meeting typically go like? Do you pitch Nexus and its features first, or do you start by learning what the use case is trying to achieve and then talk about how Nexus can fit that?
A6 - The style of the first meeting really depends on the individual(s) whom the meeting is with and our prior knowledge of the company itself. If our contact at the organisation is a business focused individual (which is almost always the case given that our contacts are in this area) then we will discuss the following:
  1. Nexus history
  2. Our features - speed, scalability, LISP, API integration, digital currency element, security. These are discussed in comparison to the other major enterprise providers: Hyperledger, Ethereum, Quorum etc…
  3. How they could best utilise the technology to benefit their business as a whole (improved speed, transparency, efficiency, fraud reduction, regulatory reporting).
Following the above topics, a follow up meeting is arranged. A technical employee from the other company will usually attend this. Typically Colin or Dino will attend the meeting to discuss the Nexus technicals in much greater detail. The following topics are discussed:
  1. Technical comparisons with other blockchains (Why Nexus Contacts > normal Smart Contracts)
  2. How to integrate with existing systems (Nexus API > Complex Coding languages)
  3. Discussions around the best way to possibly start with the use case (run in parallel to existing systems, private vs public blockchain)
  4. Complex technical questions
If our contact at the business is technical (CTO for example) then Colin or Dino will typically attend the first meeting, alongside Myself or Brian, and this intro meeting will be more technically focused. In essence we adapt to whom the meeting is with.
Following meetings will be tailored to their specific company / requirements. We do like to be as tailored as possible early on though, to differentiate from the other providers whom generally look to just sell a fixed product. (edited)
pdogg147 [3:53 PM]
Yes thanks for providing some details @alexelmo
alexelmo [3:55 PM]
Q7 - What about subsequent meetings? Do you have a standard pitch presentation or are they tailored for different industries?
A7 - Follow up meetings depend on how the potential client wishes to progress. It could be in regards to any of the following:
  1. Follow up questions in regards to why Nexus over other providers (more in general questions or in regards to their specific solution)
  2. Further use case development discussion - best way to develop the use case to maximise associated benefits
  3. Disclosure of their internal systems and what they wish their use case to achieve for this business. An NDA is typically signed prior to the second/third meeting, as sensitive information such as this is disclosed, and needs to be protected.
A key point with Nexus that separates us from the larger players is that with us, we have the capability to tailor everything (right down to the Network Layer). Our meetings reflect this flexibility, so we never try and sell a set product. We will discuss with the business, see what they would like, and see how we can help.
alexelmo [4:01 PM]
Q8 - Are use cases going to be publicly announced and if so when?
A8 - If and when perspective use cases / partnerships have been finalised, and the deal allows public announcement, then we will 100% be releasing this as public information. This is our goal for all use cases, but it is down to the business if, when and how they release this information. We must respect that different businesses have different strategies and timelines. (edited)
Q9 - Do you do demo's of the Nexus blockchain in action? If so, who from the organisation does these?
A9 - Yes we do sometimes show demos of our Blockchain in action.
As Dino has built the Demos he is typically the team member who demonstrates a use case in action (how a supply chain would work on Nexus).
Colin has done some speed based demos (showing the speed of the Nexus Blockchain in terms of reads and writes per second).
ej [4:05 PM]
I am assuming you're not at liberty to disclose if any new usecases/partnerships were indeed finalized due to the reasons previously mentioned.
alexelmo [1 hour ago]
Unfortunately we cant currently.
ej [4:06 PM]
Understood
And thank you
Dawca_Mocy [4:08 PM]
@alexelmo
How will all this affect the price of nxs? Are we going down all the time? When will nxs be noticed? Can you tell something about investors whose portfolios are smaller by 95% today?
alexelmo [1 hour ago]
Please see question 9
David Walliams [4:10 PM]
I don't think he have crystal ball dawca
alexelmo [4:11 PM]
Unfortunately not @David Walliams......that would be helpful though! :joy:
Dawca_Mocy [4:16 PM]
@alexelmo Crystal ball. Hehe. Ok. Therefore, what price do you expect for nxs at the end of the year? I mean your opinion.
alexelmo [4:16 PM]
Q10 - Please discuss where we are in the process of letting NXS be purchased with fiat (if that is even being worked on) and the hopes of finally decoupling from BTC?
A10 - This is certainly a goal, although the main focus for us has been primarily on blockchain use cases recently. The reason for this focus on use cases is that as our adoption improves, we expect that our dependence on Bitcoin will reduce.
Generally it is the top ranked coins which are listed with liquid fiat pairs. As the adoption of the Nexus blockchain improves, we hope to increase up the ranks, and look to list with these fiat based exchanges. Currently, BC Bitcoin in the UK has the ability to exchange NXS with a number of fiat currencies and other cryptocurrencies.
David Walliams [4:19 PM]
anymore news on binance US? (edited)
alexelmo [4:22 PM]
Q11 - Are we going to be listed on BinanceUS?
A11 - I have been in conversations with Binance for a while regarding the developments at BinanceUS. We have worked hard to ensure we meet the requirements for a BinanceUS listing
Unfortunately a key requirement that we may fall short on is our trading volume. We expect that only the very highest volume coins will be initially listed as part of the BinanceUS launch.
We will keep you informed as this develops.
Q12 - How many companies are currently waiting for something specific before getting their feet wet?
A12 - The main thing we have been asked for by businesses over the past few months has been in regards to the Tritium main net release. Some of our businesses are waiting for the network to be live before progressing any further, so we are very excited for our potential use cases to see the release and have a deep dive into the live running code soon.
We would like to thank @dino for making blockchain demos in the private testnet environment which have really helped given the main net deployment release date has been delayed over the past few months.
B l a c k J a c k [4:33 PM]
What are some of the other industries we have looked to disrupt, but for which NDAs have not been signed or been followed up on?
alexelmo [4:38 PM]
Q13 - Have there been cases where Nexus has been preferred to other enterprise-focused blockchains such as Hyperledger, Corda, Ethereum?
A13 - In many cases, companies we have talked to have been greatly impressed with Nexus’ technology. Yes, in almost all cases the prospective client has said our technology is superior to that of the major providers, a feat which we are extremely proud of.
alexelmo [4:46 PM]
Q14 - Can we do anything to help with enterprise efforts?
A14 - We always welcome support and input from the community in regards to our business development efforts. I have had messages from a number of community members who have told us about companies looking into blockchain and have also had calls with individuals to discuss how it would be best to approach your personal contacts.
Feel free to reach out to me if you think you have a potential business in mind that would be a good fit, I’d be more than happy to jump on a call to discuss. Don’t be afraid to reach out to someone you know we are here to help if needed.
I think I've covered all the messages that have been sent to me privately and on here so Im going to call it a night. Thanks for your time guys.

Elastos (TICKER: ELA) Assessment

Author's Note:
Elastos was discussed in this group twice, albeit 7 and 9 months ago, respectively. To do the project justice my intention is to give existing and new CryptoMoonShots group followers an update as the overall market has changed considerably and to factor in project-specific developments following the two mentions of Elastos here.

Definitions:
Content Creators and/or Developers: Individuals and enterprises that generate, design, and create digital assets.
Digital Capital: An individuals videos, photos, written text, written or spoken ideas, music, time, and attention
Big Tech: Companies like Alphabet, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Twitter to name a few.

Project Introduction:
The design philosophy of Elastos originated from Rong Chen, a former senior software engineer at Microsoft. Building on his experience at Microsoft, Chen wanted to create a platform in which applications and services are not allowed to access the Internet directly. Without access to the network, malware would not be able to steal user data or attack other services on the Internet. Chen’s vision was subsequently developed into an open-source, lightweight operating system for virtual machines (github.com/Elastos). In 2017, blockchain technology was integrated into Chen’s vision, enabling development of the Elastos Smart Web.

The project is focused on developing a decentralized internet platform where digital assets are owned, distributed, and monetized by Content Creators and/or Developers that own it. To understand this, it is imperative to understand the current internet model (Internet 2.0). Big tech currently owns the internet and everything in it: your videos, your photos, your written text, your ideas, your music, your time, your attention - and the most important in this context - the means of distribution - let's call this Digital Capital. In the current model, Content Creators and/or Developers are forced to distribute their capital through channels owned by Big Tech, which rob creators of their rights and profits.

Elastos is building the boundlessly scalable platform where digital capital can be published, distributed, and monetized by creators while allowing creators and developers to retain their rights. This platform will allow for decentralized applications (Dapps) to operate on a peer-to-peer network with no centralized control. Consumers can access these Dapps via their mobile phones without changing their operating system. The old Internet is a Web of information. If you click a URL, you get data. Elastos is creating a Web of apps. When you click a URL, you get code. The Elastos Web will be a special economic zone where Elastos tokens function as the base currency.

The project is open-source software whose development process has been sponsored by industry giants such as the Tsinghua Science Park, the TD-SCDMA Industrial Alliance and the Foxconn Group for more than 200 million RMB. The project has published more than ten million lines of source code, including four million lines of original source code. The Elastos blockchain utilizes merged mining with Bitcoin, the process by which consensus is reached on both chains simultaneously. In this case, the Bitcoin blockchain works as the parent blockchain to Elastos, with the Elastos chain as its auxiliary blockchain. The mining pools will deploy merged mining code and miners will submit proof of work to both blockchains at the same time. Energy consumption does not increase with merged mining, and will be equal to the energy consumed for mining either alone. Through this mechanism, the Elastos blockchain has an extremely strong guarantee of computing power and will then be able to provide blockchain innovations at a global scale. It makes full use of existing Bitcoin computing resources in addition to being environmentally friendly.

Live Products

Elastos SPV Wallet
Elastos provides an SPV Wallet SDK equipped with a series of wallet-related interfaces to enable users to develop unique wallets that connect to the Elastos blockchain. Sample applications are available now.
Elastos Blockchain Merged Mining
Elastos’ main public blockchain is merged mined with bitcoin, which enables pre-existing bitcoin miners to update their clients to simultaneously mine Elastos without expending excess energy. The merged mining is currently open only to the BTC.com mining pool.
Elastos DID Sidechain Service
Elastos provides a Decentralized ID (DID) Sidechain Service to be used in applications. On the Elastos ecosystem, every user, every device and every app has its own DID and can store any value that is associated with that ID on this sidechain. The DID service paves the way for a more secure and trustable internet, as this allows for seamless interoperability between DApps and IDs are assigned to users from the blockchain rather than having them assigned by a company.
Elastos TV Box
Although Elastos does not sell the TV Box directly, the Elastos Carrier is embedded inside. The Elastos TV Box is presently used for simple features such as remote control in a decentralized peer to peer fashion. In the future, these TV Boxes and many other IoT devices that have Elastos Carrier installed will be capable of running as IPFS nodes for supporting the distributed file storage network for the Elastos ecosystem.
Elastos Dittobox
Any individual can establish a unique dittobox server on a personal computer that integrates ownCloud server and Elastos Carrier. The dittobox server can be installed onto a computer behind the router, and all files stored on the server are accessible from anywhere in the world via the Elastos Carrier network.

Beta Products
Elastos Blockchain PoW + DPoS
Elastos main blockchain will employ a hybrid consensus of PoW + DPoS where the PoW is merged mined with bitcoin and both are used to package blocks while the DPoS nodes are used for signing. This creates a finality in the blocks which will prevent the chain from forking.
Elastos Token Sidechain Service
Elastos DApps utilize this service to generate application-specific native tokens within the Elastos ecosystem. As such, each application can create its own token on demand, and without friction.
Elastos Smart Contract Sidechain Service
Elastos provides a unique sidechain service that is designated to running and executing smart contracts. These smart contracts are compatible with ERC20 and ERC721 tokens, which enables Ethereum DApps to run smoothly within the Elastos ecosystem.
Elastos Hive
Elastos will provide a distributed storage system that apps can utilize to store files, messages in a p2p chat, videos, music, and more.
Elastos Elapay
Elapay is a payment tool that enables payment with ELA. Two types of payments will be supported. The first is “Pay On Order,” which encompasses standard commercial purchases, and will require merchants to integrate Elapay service into their web apps in order to offer users this payment option alongside the likes of credit card and cash payments. The second is “Point to Point Pay,” which involves individuals exchanging funds between themselves. “Point to Point Pay” uses an html5 page that can be shared on social media outlets such as Facebook or Wechat to send or receive ELA. Elapay can be expended for a variety of purposes – from purchasing a virtual asset in an online video game to standard online shopping expenditures. It simply represents another method of paying for goods and services at checkout.

Alpha Products
Elastos Trinity
A cross-platform browser application that runs on Android and will be available for iOS in the future. This is a form of the Elastos virtual machine and a demo of Elastos Runtime where decentralized applications written for Elastos run in a secure sandboxed environment. These are Ionic framework applications. Also, the SPV wallet functionality and the payment functions will be embedded inside the browser so that other DApps that run on Trinity can easily integrate with the available features.
Elastos Carrier SDK
Elastos Carrier provides SDK for Android (Java), iOS (Swift/Objective C), and nodeJS that can be utilized to connect to the decentralized peer to peer network that takes over all of the network traffic on the Elastos ecosystem, such as messaging, file transfer, and more.

On January 16, 2019 the Intelligent Grouping and Resource Sharing (IGRS) board issued Elastos a formal membership certificate, thus making official its entrance into the IGRS Industry Association. In conjunction with Association members, Elastos will explore the opportunities and potential synergies presented by blockchain and IoT, in the joint hopes of creating a robust IoT industry ecosystem.
Source: https://news.elastos.org/elastos-joins-the-igrs-industry-association/

Recently an ecosystem partner meetup revealed 900k TV Boxes sold and 180k registered DIDs via our partner app Viewchain. The Elephant Wallet also hit the Apple App Store and Google Play.

In June, 2018 Elastos partnered with ioeX, an internet of things platform that was much anticipated. The ioeX project is a behemoth on its own and is built on the Elastos platform.

**There are countless other exciting milestones that were achieved in 2018 and planned for 2019. Refer to https://news.elastos.org/.*\*

Market Sizing, Factors, and ELA's Potential
In the current market, Elastos' market cap of fluctuates between $31 million and $35 million with ~14,574,261 ELA coins in circulation ($2.1 to $2.3 per ELA) and total coin supply of 34,104,561.

ELA is currently listed on LBANK, CoinEgg, Huobi, HBUS, Kucoin, BCEX, and BIT-Z, the majority of which are low volume exchanges.

Binance Exchange controversy: Although various sources say different things, the evidence points to one plausible story: The Elastos foundation refused to pay Binance's listing fee and backed out of the listing the coin. Binance followed suit by tarnishing the project reputation using various media.

Based on the projects scope, the team's background and leadership, the project's backers, affiliations, and partnerships, and projects with similar mandates the project has the potential to be worth close to $500 million (15x) in the short term (less than 12 months) and several billion over the longer term (1 to 2 years).

The largest barrier to achieving it's objectives is adoption by developers. The chicken or the egg dilemma is that some argue listing ELA on major exchanges will incentivize developers to build on the platform because the coins value will appreciate others ague that the underlying technology must far outperform the incumbent to incentivize migration and hence drive the coins value. It's probably a combination of the two.

I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this assessment.

Thanks!

45 Bitcoin Miners Consumed Electricity More Than 3 Regions Of Kyrgyzstan Combined There is no such concept as cryptocurrency miner in Kyrgyz laws, said Chief of the National Energy Holding Company of Kyrgyzstan Aitmamat Nazarov in response to MP’s question if mining companies and Bitcoins were legal in Kyrgyzstan. “We don’t provide electricity designated specially for cryptocurrency miner companies. It was revealed that 45 mining companies consumed 136 MW of electricity and we had to cut off power to them, because they consumed more than 3 regions of Kyrgyzstan — Issyk-Kul, Talas and Naryn — consumed together,” Nazarov said.

SPND/ Spendcoin: Spendcoin (SPND) will be online on October 6th

BTC fell nearly $9,600 yesterday to date, then stopped falling and rebounded, and has now returned to the vicinity of $10,300. In the past 24 hours, the net inflows of BTC funds approached US$200 million. Compared with the previous cycle, the market inflows increased rapidly. We mentioned earlier that the main force is likely to wash dishes in the near future. Obviously, the main force finally did something yesterday, but the strength and speed of washing dishes are faster than expected. At present, the view of the medium-term bull trend remains unchanged, with the lower support focusing on the vicinity of $10,000 and then $9,600. In terms of operation, continue to attract funds at low prices, and stop loss should not be considered for the time being before breaking through the triangle area.

How IMU Tokens create Trust and Transparency between Artists and Fans?

In the music industry, there are many centralized applications working like monopolies. The imusify ecosystem provides incentives for everyone who participates, and such rewards are proportionate to each user’s active participation, in IMU Tokens.

imusify has leveraged a platform to offers both fans and listeners trust and transparency on the blockchain whenever they share music and connect to other users. On imusify, all transactions and activities are recorded in real time, and in a totally transparent way, meaning that when I upload a new song, it gets digitally traceable on the blockchain. ⠀ ⠀ Read more on our medium blog: https://medium.com/imusify/how-imu-tokens-create-trust-and-transparency-between-artists-and-fans-7468f3c77927#imusify #IMUToken #tokensale#blockchain #crypto #Technology#Blockchaintechnology #ICO #ETH#BTC #NEO #cryptolife #getIMU#bitcoin #ethereum #altcoin #altcoins#binance #trading #CryptoNews#cryptocurrencynews#blockchainnews #Satoshi#cryptotrading #cryptotrader

What is Vtrade?

VTRADE is designed to be an easy to use yet secured and rich-featured trading platform, making it accessible for anyone to get started. We pay attention to significant demands and incorporating rich functionalities into our platform to bring trading with cryptocurrencies to a new level of relevance.
About Vtrade The growth of the digital economy has already disrupted a wide range of industries including media, music and transportation. The penetration of thousands of FinTech start-ups into all areas of financial services is now bringing disruption to money itself. The potential for further disruption is unlimited. Over the course of its short lifespan to date, the crypto market has evolved erratically and at unprecedented speed. Since the release of the pioneer cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, to the public in January 2009, more than 1,000 cryptocurrencies have been developed, with cases of new uses for blockchain emerging every week.
Various projects and companies have emerged to provide services that facilitate the use of crypto for mainstream users. A crypto ecosystem has emerged, comprising a diverse set of market participants ranging from tech developers, consumers, merchants, organizations, investors, financial institutions and regulators, all attracted by the opportunities presented by blockchain technology. With the number of new entrants into the crypto market growing every day, there is increasing demand on crypto-related trading services, such as exchanges, to keep up with market growth. If the majority of cryptorelated trading is concentrated among the top exchanges, the chances of there being frequent outages and sluggish trading during periods of high traffic volume and high demand will increase. To create a harmonious ecosystem within the V-Exchange, the VTRD Coin will be used as a method of for fee payment within VTRADE.
The user-friendly outlook of VTRADE is designed to simplify the process of trading operations and provide us with the potential to target a wider user base, helping us increase the liquidity of V-Exchange. It is our intention that the VTRADE ecosystem will be a comprehensive and compliant solution for traders.

Cryptoswap — Market Problem and Challenges

Cryptoswap — Market Problem and Challenges

https://preview.redd.it/be1aa10snus11.png?width=595&format=png&auto=webp&s=21ee42f2f929c60e95f1932e0800c8105da27da5
Crypto Exchanges platform allowing investors to switch money into legislative token crypto and vice versa. The transaction also allows switching between the different crypto token. They play an indispensable role in the industry money, and without them, there would not be nearly as transaction and use the token crypto. The risks of cryptocurrency is not the volatility in prices as most people assume. Previously, most of the cryptocurrency transactions normally take place on the exchanges as Binance or Bittrex. This trend has been gradually changing as more and more special than the attacks on the exchanges. Centralized exchanges focus received much criticism and failure as the exchanges being hacker attacks, influenced by the Government or the customer support service is also more limited, or the even more worrying is the system flaw that led to the leak status personal information and risk losing money due to the malware attack.
We can see the central exchange often more user-friendly. However, its security is also more limited decentralization of the exchange. Almost every month there will be a hack in which hackers take advantage of the vulnerability of the central exchange to steal millions of dollars pre-coding. Crурtо Exсhаngеѕ still fасеs many restraints and issues. However, the nature of the centralized trading platform, together with state regulations fledgling has aroused concern. According to estimates, every 16 Bitcoin is 1 coin stolen. When hackers system violations and appropriating the private key, then all will be “no wings that fly”. (Or rather, everything is not stored in “for the cold”, with no connection to the Internet. Many exchanges try to ensure no to a larger number of their connection to the Internet, thus providing add a layer of protection granted).
In short, it is a condition occurring in the irony of the floor hack Mt. Gox hack (2014), Bitfinex (2015) and recently CoinCheck (2018). Besides the long history of hacking, all exchanges must face the fears of victims manipulate prices, reflected in recent polls of the US Justice Department. Centralized platform and decentralization are its strengths and its limitations. But the future of electronic money will inevitably become decentralized according to its inherent nature, accompanied by security, anonymous and reasonable transaction fee.
Previously, the transaction in the form of peer which has become popular, as sharing music, movies and other file formats, and now will become increasingly more popular with the exchange of electronic money . Thereby opening up potential with the new payment method, safer and more profitable. Wе hаvе саrеfullу ѕсrutіnіzеd thе issues thаt еvеrуdау uѕеrs or рlаtfоrmѕ faced and create аn аbѕоlutе ѕоlutіоn to the іѕѕuеѕ. Yоu wіll fіnd оur ѕоlutіоns аѕ уоu rеаd furthеr.
Cryptoswap is an іntuіtіvе аnd іnnоvаtіvе еxсhаngе рlаtfоrm, thаt specifically dеѕіgnеd fоr the purpose оf еnѕurіng uѕеrѕ tо have superior and еffісіеnt uѕаbіlіtу whіlе making transactions. First, current decentralized exchanges perform the swap execution on-chain (e.g. EtherDelta, Kyber, etc.). If the blockchain transaction fees will increase (which certainly happens with an increasing adoption), these exchange will no longer be able to operate due to excessive on-chain transaction fees. Second, decentralized exchanges are exposed to the risk of blockchain congestion. A popular application such as cryptokitties game might clog the Ethereum blockchain again. If the blockchain is congested, the trading on current DEX will nearly stop. Third, existing decentralized exchanges offer slow trading speeds because the users need to wait for at least one block confirmation (we recommend waiting several for security purposes). As an exchange, it would be desirable to offer near instant trade execution for more trading flexibility.

Crypto Exchanges platform allowing investors to switch money into legislative token crypto and vice versa. The transaction also allows switching between the different crypto token. They play an indispensable role in the industry money, and without them, there would not be nearly as transaction and use the token crypto.The risks of cryptocurrency is not the volatility in prices as most people assume. Previously, most of the cryptocurrency transactions normally take place on the exchanges as Binance or Bittrex. This trend has been gradually changing as more and more special than the attacks on the exchanges.Centralized exchanges focus received much criticism and failure as the exchanges being hacker attacks, influenced by the Government or the customer support service is also more limited, or the even more worrying is the system flaw that led to the leak status personal information and risk losing money due to the malware attack.
We can see the central exchange often more user-friendly. However, its security is also more limited decentralization of the exchange. Almost every month there will be a hack in which hackers take advantage of the vulnerability of the central exchange to steal millions of dollars pre-coding.Crурtо Exсhаngеѕ still fасе many restraints and issues.However, the nature of the centralized trading platform, together with state regulations fledgling has aroused concern. According to estimates, every 16 Bitcoin is 1 coin stolen. When hackers system violations and appropriating the private key, then all will be "no wings that fly".
