General Discussion / GFC: Greek Food Corridors E-Auctions in Greece
« on: August 17, 2018, 05:24:02 PM »
 We are the Next Generation electronic Auction infrastructure in Greece for Fruit & Vegetables and Olive Oil,
synchronized with a Commodity Exchange market for Futures contracts based on Fiat and cryptocurrency.
We are creating an e-auction platform for Fruits, Vegetables and Olive Oil and networking it with
the production & consumption sites to enable farmers and growers to sell their produce in a coordinated
and fair manner.
Despite the unfavourable economic environment, Greek foods stand out on the international
market confirming the comparative advantage of Greece in the agri-food sector. Traditional Greek
food harmonically combines taste with high nutritional value.
Dozens of scientific studies have demonstrated the positive effects of the balanced Greek diet
on health, beauty and longevity. Grown under the ideal climate conditions of the Mediterranean,
Greek food products have been distinguished by their excellence in quality and have thus
reinforced international esteem for traditional Greek food and cooking.
GFCNational Agri-food e-auction platform is a unique initiative established in Greece. It
integrates & coordinates the actual Agri-food spot markets with the nationwide network of
product supply, cold storage logistics, SPs, CQ agencies and Transport companies to provide
rapidly the best quality product at your doorstep.
 
The work of an e-auction is to help producers at different levels, organisation, promotion,

certification, standardisation, storage, transportation ... It is equally important to have the support
of the Ministry of Agriculture, research centres and local Universities. We need the technology to
evolve, to help our farmers grow, people to find jobs, our Greek products to find the way to the
markets.
 
Setting up a National Agricultural Platform (NAP) is particularly important for both the actual

market and the general Greek economy and for improving competitiveness. Such an attempt will
rationalise the value chain of agricultural products, enhance transparency in trade, bringing the
producer closer to the final buyer, offering him individuality (equal power), liquidity (product flow),
product homogeneity (quality standards & quantity) and will consolidate and improve product
prices across the supply chain. The National Agricultural Platform of GFC will allow the groups of
producers to create economies of scale, increasing them their turnover & profit without the risk of
capital. The platform will allow growers to focus exclusively on their production and invest in new
opportunities in the fields of cultivation, sustainability and quality, having secured the flow of their
products. Its members will be able to benefit from economies of scale, and make better use of
marketing. Establishing the GFC-NAP online auction and networking it in real time with its
production and consumption sites will organise, coordinate and increase sales (focusing on
exports), improving product quality standards and packing process. GFC e-auction platform will
be a huge step to empower farmers. Traders will bid online from anywhere in the world and
farmers & farmer’s association will have secure product flow and a fair price for their products.
This will lead to “scientific” price discovery by the farmers themselves, breaking the hold of
middlemen.
 
In turn, GFC invests in technology, knowledge and collaboration in the supply chain ensuring

the daily satisfaction of their customers and other stakeholders. The growth of the institution in
targeted products will make a decisive contribution to the promotion of the country’s specific
exports and, as a result, to the improvement of the trade balance with positive effects on the
country’s current account balance and GDP.

General Discussion / CargoCoin: blockchaining logistics.
« on: August 15, 2018, 04:04:22 PM »

International trade and logistics together are one of the largest economic sectors
in the world, accounting for over USD 30 trillion annually. 90% of the world cargo
is transported by sea. The significance of the logistics industry and moreover sea
freight is very significant with a 10.3 billion tons per annum in 2016. The logistics
sector is one of the real, physical world areas where blockchain technology can be
applied to improve efficiency and optimize operations. Logistics is a perfect fit for
the blockchain technologies, because logistics is essentially a supply chain of
merchandise, where we have irreversible steps in the supply chain that are
required to progress on to the next step. Furthermore, the blockchain provides
the much needed transparency, security and most importantly trust to all parties
involved in the chain – something that is currently being carried by banks, industry
associations and organizations, etc.

International trade and logistics are very complex nowadays although all processes
are still being carried out the way they were 300 years ago, i.e. on
paper. The title of ownership (Bill of Lading) in the shipping industry is still being
printed on paper and still being sent by courier to the receiving party. The
payments are still being carried out via banks transfers and letters of credit, all
proved to be slow, expensive and take time to clear. New regulations impose
additional checks by US intermediary banks cause further delays. Bank payment
transactions often take 3 to 5 days. All these factors cause losses to the shipping
industry and international trade. Cargoes are delayed, pending for original
documents to be delivered and payments to be received. Each idling day of a ship
could cost as little as USD 10,000 USD and up to USD 150,000 in expenses,
including salaries, port charges, running expenses. Cargo delivery delay penalties
cost millions of dollars per single shipment. Empirical research shows that 17% of
its lifespan cargo ships are idling, waiting for clearance of financial matters,
including financial hold of cargo, freight payment, cargo related documents or
other trade and ship related document. Considering that the global value of sea
freight itself accounts for USD 380 billion per year the delays generated losses are
a billion-dollar figure. That cost is passed on to the clients and to the end users, all
of us. Optimizing the international trade, logistics and sea freight industries will
affect all of us in one way or another.
Blockchain technology allows us to introduce smart contracts that will replace
paper documents, provide instant delivery of documents, eliminate the expensive
letters of credit and replace them with blockchain escrow payments.
These 4 points only will reduce delays to under 10% leading to freight optimization
and less cargo delay penalties. Further improvements such as customs clearance
are to be implemented by blockchaining. Pilot customs services project by blockchain
has already started in South Korea.
Other than the delays that account for huge losses each year, there are number of
other problems in the international logistics, that could also be solved through
blockchain logistics, such as:
 
  • Reducing fraud – replacing paper documents with smart contracts that
cannot be forged will improve trust and accountability of the document
flow.
 
  • Lowering costs and Increasing trust – using an established blockchain
protocol, such as Ethereum and escrow payments rather than bank letters
of credit will significantly reduce the costs of cargo and freight payments,
while at the same time providing for even higher trust and secure
payments.
 
  • Securing information – encryption ensures high security of the
documentation flow, which is otherwise exposed to various parties, such as
bank’s employees, agents, brokers, etc. With a blockchain solution, each
party would have access only to the information that is relevant to them
and will greatly decrease industry scouting for information.
 
  • Safe archiving – paper documents fade over time, get lost, burned, flood
and humidity greatly affect them. With blockchain smart contracts the documents
will always be in perfect shape, ready to review and reference and will not be prone
to destruction.
 
  • Tracking – tracking cargo shipments is a crucial aspect, especially if the shipment is
split in several parts or is being transported by different modes of transport throughout
the cycle. Furthermore, tracking is crucial in the supply chain of food, where batches
need to be traced back to their origins.

 Global transportation platforms, such as CargoCoin are essential for the implementation
of the 21 st century technologies such as the blockchain and smart contracts in global trade
and logistics.

Why one need to buy TDX Features that makes Tradetex Exchange Different from others:


1. Any time withdrawal or Buyback at the time of ICO.
2. Fixed returns
3. Tokens will be credited within 24 hours.
4. Complete Exchange before Token sale ( ICO launches its complete portal before token sale)
5. 100%dividend
6. Commission free Trading.
7. Anyone can trade altcoins even at staking and get interest also.
8. Complete platform is already launched with exchange, After launching they are going for
crowd funding
9. Tradetex is working on model where one gets token immediately after transaction they don’t
have to wait for ICO ends.If ICO don’t crosses its soft cap then automatically all payment will be
reversed to its investors. As here payment is under contract till ico ends.
Go through the initial stage of ICO and get 50% discount.

How Does TradeTex Offer Commission-Free Futures Trading?
• TradeTex uses its own cryptocurrency, called the TDX token, as the native currency of the
TradeTex Exchange.
• Your account balance on the TradeTex Exchange is denominated in TDX tokens and all your
trading profits and losses are in TDX tokens.
• The demand from thousands of traders who must own TDX tokens to participate will easily
increase the value of TDX Coin & that are enough to cover costs.
• TradeTex eliminates transaction fees on trades and covers operational costs by distributing
dividends. TradeTex Charges a fixed sum of 2TDX on each trade during Margin Trading and
distribute the whole amount to TDX share holders as dividend. Company is holding 20% of total
TDX Tokens and that percentage I enough to cover operational cost and all.

Regarding profit : When people starts taking part in investment plans offered by Tradetex
Exchange they have to give back there TDX tokens to the company so eventually company
stake rises from 20% to 30% or might be 40%. so the company will get more dividend quarterly
which comes under profit.

About RETURN; As, supply of TDX token is only 35 million and one needs TDX Tokens to
participate in all investment plans which includes Staking, Alt coin Mining & Trading different
crypto currencies. All trading profits and losses are denominated in TDX tokens. Margin
requirements are payable in TDX tokens and traders account balance, deposits and withdrawals
are also denominated in TDX tokens. Therefore, traders must own TDX tokens to trade on
TradeTex commission-free, trustworthy Exchange, which creates demand for the TDX token,
creating increased demand for TDX tokens that offsets inflationary cost of tokens which
automatically gaves profit to all holders. Traders on TradeTex can start trading immediately
without the need to submit their name or identity documents of any sort. As an offshore
exchange that accepts only TDX tokens, TradeTex is not bound by intrusive, ineffective and
pointless KYC/AML regulations that intrude on our users’ privacy and which put them at risk of
identity theft by making the exchange a target for hackers seeking personal information. The
best way to protect our users personal data is not to collect that data in the first place.

How privacy can be maintained in the cryptoverse.

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies had for a long time been considered a truly anonymous payment system. But this is not quite so. Payments are made to addresses which can be easily seen on the blockchain by anyone. If such an address has once been linked to a real person, they instantly lose their anonymity. That’s why nowadays many people think of Bitcoin as not an anonymous digital currency but rather a pseudonymous one.
Analyzing the blockchain along with applying KYC (Know Your Client) and AML (Anti Money Laundering) policies has helped police track down users of the Darknet markets.
Bitcoin’s creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, never considered Bitcoin anonymous and untraceable. In his Whitepaper he uses the term “anonymous” only in reference to public keys. He writes, in particular:
“Privacy can still be maintained by breaking the flow of information in another place: by keeping public keys anonymous”.
In other words, Bitcoin’s privacy is limited by the level of anonymity achievable by public keys which serve as an alias (pseudonym) for the end user. Pseudonymity and anonymity are related concepts, however, the difference between them is huge. Anonymity makes it impossible to reveal a real identity of a person or group of persons, while pseudonymity is more related to a fictitious name which someone uses instead of their real name.
Therefore, each public key becomes our personal pseudonym, and while we can try to hide behind it, the truth is that Bitcoin was not conceived with anonymity and privacy as its primary concerns.

It is not easy to hide behind a pseudonym.

The short history of Bitcoin has revealed enough examples exhibiting the drawbacks of using public keys and the hurdles that users encountered while trying to keep up their anonymity. The narrative behind Ross Ulbricht’s and Silk Road’s story is an excellent example of Bitcoin’s inadequate privacy.
Ross Ulbricht, known on the Web as Dread Pirate Roberts, founded the famous Darknet market where only Bitcoin payments had been accepted, thereby skipping traditional payment channels. These payments had been a dream thing for the unbanked users of Silk Road. Peer-to-peer aspect of cryptocurrencies matched perfectly the anarchic environment of the place. As a quirk of fate, it is Bitcoin and the blockchain exactly that had become the ultimate culprits in Ross Ulbricht’s capture and conviction.
The FBI used the Bitcoin blockchain to link transactions to servers taken over earlier. There were over 3500 entries in the public ledger made between the servers and Ulbricht’s personal notebook that the agency had laid their hands on.
In this case, the anonymity of Bitcoin ended when the FBI had successfully linked the open keys to a certain person. Ulbricht’s public keys were his pseudonyms, each of them being associated with a specific set of transactions. This happened in 2013, and since then the special services have improved dramatically the technologies of tracking down blockchain transactions.

When both the Darknet merchants and anonymous hackers realized that Bitcoin didn’t offer any magic anonymity, many of them switched to using Monero as this currency was specifically designed to impede tracking down and provide a highest level of anonymity possible. Even so, one research group has recently discovered that while Monero is definitely better than Bitcoin, it is not a panacea either.
A team of researchers from the world's leading universities including Princeton University, Carnegie Mellon University, Boston University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have released a study where they discuss the shortcomings of the mixing algorithm via which it is possible to trace single transactions. And the issue applies to anyone who ever used Monero in the past, not just the ones going to pay with it today as all payment details are permanently carved into the blockchain and easily available for analysis.
One of the study authors, Andrew Miller from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, says that people are eager to oversimply, and they expect Monero transactions to be guaranteed to remain private. In practice, though, there are still pieces of information which are not encrypted by the network. In this manner, Monero transactions remain potentially traceable, even though it is still a matter of probability rather than solid evidence.

How to maintain anonymity?

There are always enthusiastic people willing to take steps and turn the word ANONYMITY into a real thing. However, these efforts are most often backed up by entities affiliated with governments and special services.
For example, TOR is sponsored by the US government (which is openly stated on their site).
JohnDoe Browser is sponsored by Google which has always been faithful and loyal to special services without even hiding it.
There are many such projects, but it is almost always evident where everything comes from.
In my opinion, the future of anonymity and privacy belongs to projects which are financially backed up by simple users and not affiliated with any entity.
The author of this piece had a hard time to find such a project today. As a matter of fact, any project aiming at true anonymity won’t disclose its algorithms, team members and similar details, even though this will definitely raise legitimate concerns and suspicions in the community.
Presently, the most promising project aimed at offering anonymity in the Internet is Stealth Project.



Stealth Project.

This project consists of a novice decentralized network ecosystem employing the blockchain paradigm as well as results of modern research in the field of applied cryptography and privacy protection. The project is being developed according to the following milestones:
A multi-cryptocurrency wallet with strong emphasis on anonymity offering a built-in mixer
A self-sufficient anonymous and autonomous network infrastructure (similar to Tor but with its own system of independent servers which is times faster)
Creation of web content available only from within the Stealth Project network

Stealth Wallet is one of the most interesting aspects of the project. The project developers plan to introduce useful features like:
A built-in cryptocurrency mixer enjoying a sophisticated mixing algo;
Instant mixing with immediate coin transfers from different addresses;
Possibility of passive earning when participating in the mixing program;
Instant cryptocurrency exchange similar to ShapeShift but with added anonymity;
A system of exchange codes to support off-chain transfers of funds;
An under-the-gun protection mechanism including a feature which allows to sends the wallet balance to the system via a secret key combination (and claim the money back at short notice);
Cross-platform support and many other features.
The project has its own STELZ token which can be used as a means of payment for coin mixing. At the moment, the project’s ICO is live and running, and it will last till September, 1st. Considering the interest the project has raised as well as the fact that the project’s team are delivering on their promises so far (for example, they paid out the rewards to bounty hunters in full), it is quite possible that there will a reliable tool instrumental in achieving network anonymity by December.

Conclusion.

It is not uncommon nowadays to hear the question why do we actually need anonymous cryptocurrencies? It involves concerns that we, as individuals, want to protect our personal data and privacy even though most of us have nothing to hide.
Privacy is a funny thing considering the fact that it is not always obvious why a law-abiding citizen and not a wrongdoer would ever need it. But for the society as a whole it is a very valuable asset, and that’s exactly the reason why its benefits are hard to notice on a personal level. It is helpful to draw an analogy here: any particular individual may not need a road over a thousand miles away but the society at large benefits greatly from a developed transport infrastructure.

Safeguarding sensitive information against encroachments of various intruders has become one of the most burning issues in our age of highly advanced technologies. It's not a secret that even the data protection systems of high reliability, which are utilized by huge transnational corporations and political organizations, are prone to being compromised by third parties. The infamous cyberattack on the data centers of the Democratic National Committee can serve as the most spectacular example of such vulnerability. This intrusion resulted in the theft and subsequent promulgation of the confidential correspondence between the party members that allegedly had a significant impact on the outcome of the election in the U.S
Nevertheless, when there is a problem, there is a solution. The active development of blockchain had a positive effect on the area of online finance, so now it's time to introduce this technology into the sphere of distribution of sensitive information and protection of valuable digital assets. P2P Solution Foundation, comprised of fintech and blockchain experts from various countries, decided to tackle this issue head-on.

P2PS Mission

P2PS (Peer-to-Peer Solutions) is an innovative blockchain-based peer-to-peer platform which provides its users with an opportunity to directly exchange digital files and assets, without possible intrusion by any third party. Such exchanges or transactions can't be meddled, altered, delayed or canceled by anyone other than the peers (direct participants in the process), even by the network or system administrators. The primary mission of P2PS is to ensure the thorough security of the process of storing and transferring sensitive information and valuable digital assets within the framework of the peer-to-peer platform that will subsequently transform into the fully-fledged ecosystem.

What kind of data can be protected via P2PS?

P2PS is the overly-protected peer-to-peer platform that provides the unique means for secure long-term storage/transfer of any kind of data, archives, documentation, and even valuable digital assets between two independent nodes without even the slightest possibility of intrusion from a third party. The P2PS technology will allow users to carry out secure transactions of the following digital data:
Confidential banking information, including customer databases, annual and quarterly reports, transaction history;
Medical records: patients' medical history, reports on public and public procurement of pharmaceutical drugs, patient database;
The data of national importance: the widest range of documents, from transcripts of political negotiations to the information concerning government contracts from the military-industrial complex;
Business information: customer database, tax data, employees' personal information.
Sensitive personal information: personal records, photo and video archives, wills etc.
It is safe to say that the P2PS platform is a unique and unparalleled development. None of the existent platforms can match the level of data transfer security guaranteed by the P2PS Foundation.

P2PS Token

The ERC-20 compliant P2PS token will become the main driving force of the platform. The purchase of the certain quantity of tokens will be mandatory for all users of the P2PS platform because this token serves as the means of payment for gaining access to various features and the investment in the further development of a secure and intrusion-free P2PS ecosystem. Starting with Electronic Learning Inc. and Innovative Solutions International Inc., over the course of time, the P2PS token will fully replace the licenses that users are currently required to purchase in order to use all benefits of this peer-to-peer communication platform.

General Discussion / Parkres- Decentralized Parking Reservation System
« on: August 01, 2018, 04:32:12 PM »
Toronto based fintech startup Parkres announced that its ecosystem— which lets users find and reserve a parking spot anytime anywhere— has now launched globally.

PARKRES is the all-in-one parking solution, bridging the gap between cryptocurrency and parking system. On Parkres platform users will be able to find and reserve the parking spot anywhere anytime, pay from their mobile wallet using either fiat (AUD, USD, etc.) or cryptocurrency (BTC, ETH, etc.) and even with Parkres tokens (PARK) with discounted rates, find traffic updates to their parking spot, manage parking bookings, register their parking space on the Parkers ecosystem to make money. Parkres is having its ITO in 2018, where it will be revolutionizing the way consumers search parking and uses parking system today.

The Parkres app makes it very quick and simple to find and reserve a parking spot near any destination or any remote location for a required timeslot. Apps will be available free for download over IOS and Android, and a web interface will be available as well. Setup takes less than five minutes to create user profiles and PARK token wallet is embedded within the app. Parkres is not just an app but an entire ecosystem. Mobile apps are only a part of it.

The Parkres system solves several critical pain points that exists in present parking system— non-user centric design, unmanaged and unmonitored parking spots, payment takes too long results in long waiting queues at kiosk, traffic problems and anti-ecological, loss of fuel, loss of time and traffic congestion.

The Parkres system also provides a Parking AirBnb platform, where users will be able to list or register their parking spot on the platform and earn money from it. This is reduce the shortage of parking spaces in the urban cities, also will help regulate the parking industry. Parking providers can earn money from their open spots and unused spaces. Similarly, users or parking seekers can get a relatively cheap spot in the area they looking to park.

The Parkres ICO has been designed to be a highly attractive proposition for investors. “We have rolled out a steady stream of new features on the platform and have added a number of highly experienced advisors and team members. We are an actual business and have a very promising roadmap in front of us. We believe the token configuration and offering make it a difficult combination to turn down”. Parkres’s pre-ITO fundraising round is targeting to sell 20,000,000 PARK tokens with 15% discounts to whitelist members, and then further 55,000,000 PARK token during their crowdsale beginning 15st August 2018.

Nortonchain is an improved technology in the revolution of blockchains. A distributed ledger with the

sole aim of executing free transactions and giving high level of security to all users.

Nortonchain is a dias on which several other platforms can be built on just like the bitcoin blockchain

and where transactions are executed in every second and confirmed.

However, transactions are executed on Nortonchain and confirmed automatically peer to peer without the

need for miners. On Nortonchain, confirmations are done automatically as they are made. Nortonchain is

built with Artificial Intelligence embedded in it to do the work of miners. By so, getting all

transactions confirmed on each user's account as the AI is capable of creating a child of itself

attaching each one to each new account created. With the relation from the parent AI, every child AI that

is very much the same as the parent AI is fully aware of all transactions made and this fosters the

automatic confirmation process on the chain.

With this, everything on Nortonchain syncs with one another and maximum safety is assured. Further more,

dummy transactions are executed by the AI system in other to have billions of transactions executed in a

short period of time and this would ensure much more security as compromising a transaction information

on one AI node wouldn't influence the information carried by others, except one could influence that of

all nodes at same time, but this is impossible as multiple nodes are created on every transaction made

and each AI powered node is independent on the information or activity on others, it carries transaction

details and cannot be made to change or edited, more like an irreversible process. This makes sure that

even if a preexisting node is comprised, the others are not corrupted.

Nortonchain is with its own exchange, a decentralized exchange where users no longer have to worry about

passwords and emails to login, neither do they have to worry about private keys. With Nortonchain's AI,

the exchange is capable of having users simply login with their face being recognized as their login

information.

Norton Bot is another breakthrough to help users communicate with Nortonchain directly. With Norton Bot,

developers of any kind can build anything on Nortonchain by just giving few description (commands) and

details to the Bot and it gets this almost completely built for the developer. This will help the

developer get work done and project executed real quick and even more efficient.

Norton Bot is more like telegram, easy and user friendly, but more powerful than imagined.

Nortonchain has its representative coin called Norton Coin. Norton Coin is a payment coin used on the

numerous Norton Platforms. It's atomic swap capable and is used on other platforms outside of Nortonchain

for countless usages.

Improving game monetization and countering ad fraud / adblocking.

Even though digital advertising surpassed even TV advertising in volume in 2016 and gaming has become the

biggest entertainment market, there are still a lot of problems plaguing the industries. For example, a

lot of the advertising budget is lost due to fraud, repetitive ad content or ad blocking. Another big

problem is the unfair distribution of the ad revenue, as classical intermediaries take high cuts instead

of the revenue reaching the ones fueling the whole industry: the gamers and the game developers.

Shaping games.

The attention of gamers is worth a lot of money to brands and advertisers. In-game advertising is on the

rise, but currently mainly consists of interruptive ad formats. We are providing an advertising solution

by gamers for gamers, which is embedded as part of the surroundings, doesn’t interrupt the gaming

experience and also gives financial value back to the gamers themselves. Through registering at our

marketplace we can identify and reward gamers while gaming, through our tokens we can also grant voting

rights on upcoming features to gamers, enabling gamers to shape the future of gaming.

Embedded advertising.

We provide various services at Vreo: for developers, we provide a plugin that enables the placement of

digital billboards and surfaces for ads within software. This enables the placement of ads dynamically

and natively embedded within said software (no pop-ups, so no pop-up blockers) and reports back all

interaction of the user with the ad. These plugins and their algorithms are used for streaming and

exchanging the ads as well as evaluating the exact number (and the quality!) of views and other user

specific data. Contrary to other developments our solutions are not bound to specific hardware devices

but usable on every platform and make use of blockchain technology. We also provide a marketplace where

gamers, game developers and advertisers can find together.

Untapped potential.

Most games out there have a lot of untapped potential: while a lot of in-game advertising is happening on

mobile, it is still “immobile” advertising that interrupts the gaming experience of the user. With our

plugins, we provide a solution to embed ads into the surroundings of the game, for example at roadside,

on walls of houses or on billboards and TVs, without interrupting the gaming experience. On PC and

console there is next to no in-game advertising present, as there was no technology available to do it on

a larger scale, a problem our plugin and marketplace solve.
Currently, gamers have no way of participating other than gaining in-game rewards, if any, and get

presented with repetitive, non-fitting ads. Customer retention models are on the rise, but still mostly

provide no real or monetary benefit to the users.

Use of blockchain technology.

There are a lot of problems troubling developers and advertisers, for example transparency and security.

Blockchain can solve these problems for both gaming and advertising. All ad data gets gathered and

written into a blockchain, where, due to its decentralized nature, it cannot be manipulated, providing a

high amount of trust for everyone involved. Combine this with gamer profiles, which are based upon

self-determined control, and fraudulent content gets minimized by a lot, as every ad impression is

verified and accountable for.
Using tokenization and incentivizing usage of our tokens, we grant both transparency and trust, but also

voting rights to the gamers to get them involved in the whole creation process of a game. Developers can

thus get feedback from the community regarding features and design questions.
We strongly believe that blockchain technology will be a great solution for advertising and gaming in

general, which is why our solutions are always scalable, as we plan to adapt other forms of advertising

to our data and billing routine as well.

The Vreo tokens.

The Vreo network will make use of a two token structure, enabling store-of-score mechanisms (through the

ViewToken or VIT) and a volatile utility token that grants network access, voting rights and additional

utilities like elimination of transaction fees (the MeritCoin or MERO).

Who are we?
We started working on solutions to improve the experience of the gaming and VR industry in 2016. Our team

consists of professionals and entrepreneurs of all ages, with industry veterans in PR, marketing, sales

and coding. We have strong experience in building companies up from scratch and establishing new business

models. In addition to our core team, we rely upon our vast network of developers and contacts all around

the world, some of which joined our advisory board. For every step we take and every industry we are in

contact with, we either have a team member or a well-recognized advisor in their respective field – for

the ICO and after.

What lies ahead?
The private sale of our MeritCoins is currently ongoing. The Vreo team has attended and is attending

Bitex aims to be a locally embedded bank for cryptocurrencies. Bitex views traditional exchanges as limited in their ability to safely store and manipulate cryptocurrencies. On the other hand, traditional banks simply do not have the infrastructure, the expertise, or the will to devote time, money, and space to cryptocurrencies. Bitex aims to fill this void.

“If commerce based on cryptocurrencies is to progress to the point of having these accepted as a proper medium of exchange for goods and services and take its place as a peer to fiat currencies, it is necessary to create new institutions that can cater for the needs that people have come to association with financial transactions,” Bitex explained in its white paper. “These include the ability to store currency, exchange between currencies as needed, use currencies for payment of goods and services, automate bill payments, take out loans, etc.”

Bitex also hosts its own native currency, XBX, which can be used to pay for services and is automatically converted as fees when a user uses the diversified Bitex platform.
How Does It Work?
Bitex aims to provide a hybrid of traditional banking and cryptocurrency exchange services. This is provided by the synergy between two distinct platforms – BitexPay and EZBitex. BitexPay will handle customers’ cryptocurrency transfer needs, such as paying bills.

EZBitex will store customers’ cryptocurrencies via its own distributed ledger system. Both will make use of ERC20-compatible wallets. The EZBitex platform also functions as a sort of universal exchange, where customers can exchange their cryptocurrencies for other cryptocurrencies or fiat, as they deem appropriate.


Where Does Bitex Aim to Do Business?
Bitex plans to launch its platform in the middle of 2018 in eight different countries – Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates. Bitex is shooting for a so-called “locally embedded” business model, similar to Uber. That is, each country’s branch of Bitex will be operated as a local franchise.
“Services will be operated by local partners that license the Bitex platform as a franchise, and who will register with the financial authorities in their respective countries,” Bitex stated. “By working with local partners, who have a much better understanding of local customers and regulators and making available localized applications and customer support, the Bitex crypto-banking platform becomes the most accessible crypto-banking solution on the market.”
Bitex added that it plans to focus mainly on Asia and the Middle East as it grows.
“All pointers therefore indicate that Asian and the Middle East are the regions most likely to need and welcome a robust crypto-based financial system, and where Bitex’s local impact will best be demonstrated,” the company stated. “Bitex will demonstrate the local impact it will have in each country where it is licensed, by offering a relevant localized financial service bundle, and redefining how financial services for this new cryptocurrency-based digital economy can be delivered.”

What Need Does Bitex Want to Fill?
Cryptocurrency and global banking are very nearly polar opposites. In fact, Bitcoin’s landmark 2008 white paper explicitly stated that the reason for its existence to circumvent the traditional “trusted third party” represented by banks and government regulatory agencies. Where, then, does Bitex and its native token XBX stand? Even cryptocurrencies can benefit from traditional banking functions, Bitex argues.
“When creating a crypto-banking solution, Bitex has been motivated by the need to go back to the original purpose for a bank, namely an institution that helps the economy function and grow by providing a way to manage savings, provide means for payment and money transfer, and facilitate loans,” Bitex stated in its white paper. “By sticking to these basic functions, Bitex believes that crypto-banks can restore the public’s faith in banking for this new cryptocurrency-based digital economy, and remove the image of greed and profit-seeking that current commercial banking has unfortunately propagated by moving into speculative assets and markets.”
Bitex, then, hopes that its crypto-bank will function more like a public utility than a for-profit commercial bank, though it should be noted that Bitex is still a for-profit company and operates a native token.
How Does Bitex Plan to Make Money?
As of now, Bitex claims that it has raised more than $2.7 million by selling licenses to future franchise holders in 8 countries. Presumably, the continued sale of franchise licenses will fund future growth. The company will also retain 30 percent of the 300 million XBX tokens that it plans to sell during its mid-2018 initial coin offering, to be distributed among the founders and in various marketing schemes. Fee schedules for the licensed franchises have not yet been set, though Bitex notes that transaction fees will be calculated as a percentage of each transaction and paid in XBX tokens automatically whenever a transaction occurs.
Conclusion
Cryptocurrency and traditional banking have been at odds with one another since the birth of Bitcoin circa 2008. Bitcoin was created as a way to encode public trust directly into the blockchain, eliminating the need for a trusted third party. However, the market as of 2018 is awash with public exchanges and a growing clamor for more government regulation and big investment money. The reason is simple: adoption. While the benefits of being your own bank and protecting your own currencies may appeal to the technologically literate, the vast majority of simple investors don’t want to stray too far from the traditional banking model. Cryptocurrencies are not a political statement for them; they simply want a safe place to store their money and watch it grow.
Bitex aims to be this link between the vast sums of money sitting in traditional banking accounts and the cryptocurrency markets. While Bitex’s business plan might leave a bad taste in the mouths of crypto-purists, common investors are likely to find a familiar flavor to Bitex’s offering. The company’s decision to expand primarily in Asia and the Middle East also bodes well for it as a cryptocurrency for developing and emerging markets.

Everyone understands that trading goods for cryptocurrency via the Internet is associated with risks due to the high volatility of the cryptocurrency market. Protection of buyers in such Internet sites ensures retention of funds until the complete transaction, and this is usually 2-4 weeks. And even such large currencies as Bitcoin and Ethereum can lose more than 20% in a week. Therefore, we offer our marketplace account in MinerToken. Will be released a limited number MinerToken that will keep a stable price. And with the development of the project its cost will only grow.

Another direction of development of our project will be the development and production of farms on immersion cooling and the creation of data center with alternative sources of electricity.

What is Immersion cooling. This is a cooling option when the cooling object is completely immersed in the cooling liquid. This completely eliminates the noise from the cooling fans, reduces heat emissions and prolongs the life of the equipment. Another big plus is the complete absence of dust, which eliminates the need for prevention of equipment every 4-6 months.
This method of cooling allows to keep the temperature of the chips within 30-40 * C, and this allows additional overclocking equipment and increase the hashrate.
Peltier Elements will be used to cool the liquid, this also eliminates the need for fans. Electronic control of cooling with a set temperature and control of electricity consumption will be provided by a microprocessor with the possibility of remote control via the Internet.
The opening of the Data-center using wind and solar energy will reduce the cost of mining. After the launch of the Data-center, we will accept for service both purchased from us and third-party equipment for mining.
