Blockchain Powered Content Sharing Marketplace Rally Launches Airdrop Offering 2 Billion Rally Tokens

Rally, a user-centric marketplace for content sharing built on Ethereum, has just started the Rally Airdrop with an allocation of a whopping two billion Rally coins as rewards for new users joining, referring and engaging. The platform is dedicated to revolutionizing the concept of content sharing through transparency and decentralization, bypassing digital monopolies and empowering individual users by placing them at the center of the value chain.

August 08, 2018

Rally is delighted to announce that their much awaited Rally Airdrop has now gone live. A content sharing platform like none other, Rally has built a platform that rewards its users for sharing and engaging with content they like for crypto rewards. Rally Airdrop is open for all, and all potential users can now join and start earning Rally tokens immediately. With two billion (forty percent of overall tokens) allocated as Airdrop rewards, Rally claims this to be the largest bucket of token allocation in the industry.

“Centralized social platforms have created hundreds of billions of dollars of value through the contributions and actions of their users, unfortunately users received none of this value,” said James Cashiola, the Founder of Rally. “We are changing this; ninety percent of all Rally Coin is being allocated directly to marketplace participants, we want the broadest adoption possible with the most transparency possible.”

The ongoing Rally Airdrop provides a not-be-missed opportunity for users to earn Rally Tokens. There is no limit to the amount of tokens that can be earned by joining, referring and engaging. The purpose of the Airdrop is to build the Rally community while facilitating the distribution and sharing of rewards to all stakeholders.

To truly reward users for the value they create, Rally has implemented a new incentive system called Community Royalties.  This program rewards users not only when they refer new users, but also each time their referred users earn tokens.

The Rally Coin can be used by the users to:

  • Redeem prizes, goods or services from advertisers.
  • Accumulate tokens for a higher rank, receive badges and awards.
  • Send tokens to other users on the platform.
  • To promote their content and incentivize other users to engage.
  • Sell back to advertisers.

The advertisers will be able to use Rally Coin as a payback system to:

  • Put an advertisement through the Rally website.
  • Reward users sharing or liking their content.
  • Buy back tokens from users through rewards and special offers.

Rally has built its content sharing platform based on the Ethereum blockchain to address the critical requirements such as transparency, security, incentives and attribution. Use of blockchain will allow them to record user contributions and reward actions that boost the value of the platform. The proprietary token of the platform is known as the Rally Coin (RALLY).

To sign up for the Rally Airdrop, learn about its rewards program and earn Rally coin, please visit www.rallyairdrop.com

About Rally: Rally is dedicated to reclaiming content sharing, taking it back from social media platforms, attributing fair value to it, decentralizing it and putting power back in the individual’s hands. The platform rewards users to distribute an advertiser’s content to their individual social network. This allows the advertiser to shift their advertisement budget to the user who, by sharing the content, gives it their recommendation and increases its effectiveness.

Blockchain Rendering Startup Out Paces Its Competitors in Early Benchmark Tests

While news in the crypto space aren’t rife with record-high market caps, the underlying technology, that is the blockchain, is having quite a year. After a prolific and record-breaking year in 2017, new blockchains funded by the ICO model, are the main attraction for the crypto movement.

So far this year, there have been more than 700 projects that collectively earned nearly $18 billion. In just a short period of time, the blockchain space became a crowded place.

With that new arrangement, there is growing debate about the qualities that set blockchain startups apart from one another. In a very real way, their ability to deliver on their promises is becoming an increasingly important differentiator. People are becoming fatigued by platforms making grandiose promises with little technical ability to deliver on their ideals.

Meanwhile, other platforms are acquiring a devoted following and are demonstrating technological capabilities that show that they are ready to lead the charge in the decentralized economy.

One platform, Leonardo Render, had a big week in this regard. The blockchain startup, which provides graphics rendering services that are facilitated by the token economy, is set to launch its public presale in less than a month.

Before the launch, the company put its network through an important stress test to ensure that they are capable of delivering a high-end product when their public sale begins.

Test Results Are In

Leonardo Render put their network to the test against eleven prominent competitors including Amazon Web Services (Renderbot), Fox Render Farm, Turborender, RebusFarm, Paperspace, RenderRocket, Render4You, vsocloud, Render Street, BlenderGrid, and Anima Render.

Surprisingly, many of these platforms failed to perform the desired task because they were inaccessible due to login issues or other accessibility shortcomings. Ultimately, only three of the eleven platforms completed the rending tests.

These problems are especially surprising given the high-caliber companies involved in the benchmarking and their established place in the industry.

To create a level testing field, each platform attempted to render two images, a BMW photo and a standard Koro Blender image. The three companies that successfully rendered the Koro imagine took between 15 – 20 minutes to complete the test, and the effort cost $1. The BMW image rendered significantly faster, taking just three minutes and costing $0.20.

Meanwhile, Leonardo Render outperformed the market in both instances. The Koro image was completed in seven minutes, and the BMW image rendered in just two minutes. In addition, Leonardo Render performed both tests significantly more cheaply than its competitors, costing just $0.22 and $0.06 respectively.

Although Leonardo Render is a functioning platform with an existing client base, it’s still in the startup phase. However, it wholly outperformed industry incumbents.

Interpreting the Findings

The blockchain industry is producing a flurry of startups that are delivering mixed results when it comes to actual platform implementation. The chasm between companies that claim excellence and those that deliver on this promise is growing ever wider, and Leonardo Render’s latest benchmark test places them solidly among the companies delivering on their premise.

Moreover, Leonardo Render addresses an important cultural concern. With more professionals leaving corporate jobs in favor of a freelance career, many are without the technological capabilities that their corporate jobs once provided. As a result, third-party rendering services are in high demand. The most capable and affordable services will play a pivotal role in this sector’s proliferation.

The combination of an exceedingly competent platform and an in-demand service is the recipe for effective blockchain proliferation. As the growing cadre of blockchain companies is sorted, these are bound to be the defining characteristics that separate successful startups and well-orchestrated flops.

Stick Sports mobile games company looks to make it big on the blockchain

stick sportsWildly popular mobile games company Stick Sports Ltd, creators of the fiendishly addictive Stick Cricket, Tennis and Football games, are climbing aboard the blockchain train and shaking things up in the free-to-play mobile games arena.

How exactly do they plan to initiate this shake up? It all centres around in-games assets and the player’s ownership of them. Currently, any assets a someone gets their hands on during a game are not technically owned by the player, instead being merely licenced out by the publisher—kinda like having your hand in the cookie jar but not being able to take it out to eat the aforementioned cookie. This is where Stick Sports plan to buck the trend, with the help of the blockchain.

The upcoming reboot of their Stick Cricket game will utilise blockchain tech to allow players to officially own any assets they buy, win, earn or create while playing, so they can take that cookie, and do whatever their heart desires with it, whether it’s keeping it, flogging it or digitally eating it. In addition, these players can record their own history on assets to make them truly one of kind items, in turn customising key components of the game. And gone are the days where assets will only hold any value when they’re inside the game. Utilising the blockchain means they will have real-world value outside of the gaming landscape. This essentially gives players a new dimension to work with, where they are not only gamers, but stakeholders holding an investment with a true incentive for the game they’re playing to be successful.

Games transitioning to the blockchain so far have still met some problems they need to overcome. For starters, it’s a sizeable entry barrier to entice someone with zero interest in crypto to head over to the blockchain world. However, the benefits are easy to see, and with current none-blockchain based games often lacking certain gameplay incentives, the number of people who do get into crypto could skyrocket once they start to see how it would enhance their experiences.

This is why Stick Sports are actively targeting gamers in their new venture, rather than traditional crypto-enthusiasts, creating a whole host of tantalising technologies to pique the interest of avid players, and remove the obstacles that often feel too complicated to the average consumer when they hear the word ‘blockchain’. Stick Sports Founder and CEO, Paul Collins, certainly believes that his company will be able to achieve this, saying “after this shift, there will be no going back for the industry. As a leading adopter of mobile games and free-to-play formats, we strive to be at the forefront of change within the games industry. We’re incredibly excited about the radical evolution this new initiative will bring.”

Paul Collins Stick Sports LTD
CEO Paul Collins

The new blockchain-based Stick Cricket game will first launch in India, such is their love of the sport there. Plus, with India being the largest market for Google Play downloads, and with a huge projected growth for new smartphones, there is certainly scope for reaching an massive untapped market.

With a staggering number of downloads across Android and iOS, currently over 70 million and counting, Stick Sports have certainly shown their ability to create successful games people love to play, now let’s see if they can mimic this success over on the blockchain landscape.

You can now send Crypto via SMS

Blockchain startup Crypterium headed by former VISA UK CEO is making crypto that little bit easier so even your Grandma could use it.

crypteriumCrypterium, a Blockchain based startup has introduced a new feature that enables anyone to send cryptocurrency using just the recipient’s phone number. The transfer happens almost instantly and the technology is able to process a million transactions per second due to its off-chain technology. This simplifies usage and opens up usability to anyone who can send a text message.

The recipient does not need a wallet in place to receive the cryptocurrency, instructions are sent via a text message on how to access and use the funds, making it extremely easy to send Bitcoin to your grandma, friend or someone you owe money to anywhere in the world.

Crypterium takes direct aim and addresses the elephant in the room when it comes to cryptocurrencies. Crypto currently sucks at being user friendly for the many non-tech savvy users. They partly aim to solve this by removing the need for complicated wallet addresses and with speeding up transaction times, which at the moment for popular cryptocurrencies could take anywhere from minutes to days if the network is congested.

Former Visa UK CEO Marc O’Brien currently sits as the CEO at Crypterium and has set a goal of bringing the crypto industry mainstream and making it more user friendly.

“We’re on our way to the 21st century’s “Netscape moment”, the day when a California startup’s eye-popping market debut illuminated the World Wide Web for millions of people, otherwise only vaguely familiar with its potential and promise,” – he explains, mentioning that his own startup, Crypterium, “makes buying, selling and spending of cryptocurrency in everyday life as easy as possible, and that’s what will bring the next billions of people to using crypto.”

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

We spoke to Crypterium CEO, Marc O’Brien about the future in banking:

1. What benefits does handling the transactions off-chain provide? Does this defeat the purpose of the Blockchain? How does Crypterium prevent double spend issues?

We are aiming to create a universal solution for implementing cryptocurrency into the existing payment infrastructure, and it’s currently impossible to achieve our goal without running operations off-chain. You just can’t implement decentralized systems into existing protocols and payment systems. Using off-chain allows us to merge those two completely different worlds.

We don’t think it is defeating the purpose of the blockchain, but it definitely helps to make blockchain mainstream.

To prevent double spending, we are implementing a technology based on a smart contract that needs approvals both from our user and from us to run the transaction.

2. Can you explain how consumers will make the shift from lets say using there VISA card with their high street bank to paying for a pint of milk at the corner shop with Crypterium?

It’s just the matter of habit. Once people try paying with crypto and see the advantages, they wouldn’t want to go back to fiat.

As CEO of Visa UK, one of my favorite projects was to work across the industry and build contactless for Europe. The vision that we had was to actually make contactless an everyday experience for consumers to be able to buy low value items like newspapers or coffee quickly and conveniently with a contactless card. It seemed very unusual at the beginning, but today, can you imagine your life without contactless payments?

3. Traditional banks offer many security features such as fraud prevention, refunds etc. This often drives consumer trust and authority. With crypto this is a major concern, particularly because it is all still new technology and the fact that it is sometimes associated with a sketchy darknet past. How will consumers trust your cryptobank?

Our app meets all the security requirements for traditional mobile banks. We use the most advanced security features, and our app was reportedly audited in accordance with the highest banking standards.

We are Safety Leaders Award Winner 2017, we have PCI DSS compliance certificates, and we have decades of experience in payments industry to help us build a secure product.

We also offer refunds on the purchases. Right now, you can top up your phone with crypto, and if there’s any problem, we have a well-functioning refund system to

Moreover, we are looking for an insurance partner to provide something like FDIC insurance.

4. How does Crypterium work with current financial legislation? How does it operate within those frameworks? Do these frameworks stifle adoption or cause any complications?

The situation differs from country to country, and we’re working on building relation with regulators worldwide as Crypterium is a global project. We already have three licenses, and we have applied for more. We can definitely see interest in most of the countries, and a shift from attempts to ban crypto to attempts to learn and understand this new industry.

5. Many crypto firms who offered debit cards such as XAPO have slowly been cut off from the merchant networks for reasons that have never been clear. Crypterium integrates with these card terminals currently present in shops but how do you plan to secure this partnership moving forward? As with these other services could the traditional banks simply shut out Crypterium. Are you seen as competition?

I don’t want to comment on our competitors, but some of them have made some obvious mistakes violating financial regulation. Our lawyers make sure that we comply with legislation in every region we’re entering, we are 100% transparent to regulators and governments. It takes time, it takes effort, but it secures our future and allows us to build a product that will last.

I also want to indicate that we don’t integrate with card terminals. We partner with banks to issue virtual cards that our users will use to pay at any NFC terminal, or via QR codes, etc. We are also working on unique solutions for e-commerce platforms and site builders to let the merchants receive crypto payments.

Last but not least, we always have plan B, if something goes wrong with one of our partnerships. And then plan C, D and E.


Crypterium allows you to “pay with crypto anywhere in the world” and works just like a traditional bank but without a 3rd party.  Assets are held securely in your cryptobank and can be used to purchase goods in real-time via the standard contactless card readers present in many shops, this is done via a virtual card attached to your Crypterium app.

Bitcoin Price Eyes $7.6K – The Resistance is Strong

Bitcoin appeared to lose vital $7k support earlier this week dropping to $6.9K on the 5th of August, but a small rally may soon be on the horizon from technical analysis of the charts.

What we might be seeing at the moment is a bearish decline from taking into consideration the 50-day moving average (MA) where selling pressure failed to push the price lower than $6.9k due to the strong resistance.

At the time of writing the price reached $7,287.91 on Huobi with Bithumb not far behind at $7,255.52 per Bitcoin, but western exchanges are much slow on the corrective rally with the price at $7,188.46.



At the time of writing the the price of one Bitcoin on the largest exchange by 24 hour volume, BitForex is $7,098.84

This strong buying support behind the 50-day moving average could be an early indicator of a bullish August with a rally towards $7,500 – $7,600 expected.

bitcoin market price

This change of market is based on strong rumours circulating that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) may finally give the green light to a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) at the end of this week when the SEC meet on the 10th of August.

In other news major Swiss-based banks, CoinBase and Goldman Sachs are enhancing custody services for their big institutional clients which will see a secure cryptocurrency service for storing large amounts of crypto.

What do you think will happen to the Bitcoin price this week?

Nexo signs partnership with UTRUST known as the ‘Paypal of Crypto’

Leading crypto-backed loans provider Nexo has signed a partnership with UTRUST

 

nexo logo

Nexo, the world’s first instant crypto-backed loans platform, has announced that they have signed a  partnership with the crypto payment platform UTRUST (known as the Paypal of Crypto) for the integration of Nexo’s instant loan solution on the UTRUST platform.

“PayPal Credit” for the Crypto Industry

As a result of the agreement, UTRUST will integrate Nexo’s instant crypto-backed lending capabilities on UTRUST’s platform in order to provide crypto holders with the option to make delayed payment purchases, quite similar to PayPal Credit.

“We are thrilled by the possibilities our partnership with Nexo opens up for the crypto world,” said Nuno Correia, CEO of UTRUST. “We are joining forces to further build on our mission to provide consumers and merchants with a reliable payment infrastructure, allowing them to tap into the full potential of cryptographic technologies.”

The partnership expands the two companies’ existing infrastructures, allowing buyers to make secure purchases while HODL-ing their crypto assets.

“One of the main barriers to cryptocurrencies’ mainstream adoption has been an inadequate payment infrastructure and merchant network, limiting consumers’ buying choices and, ultimately, disturbing their purchasing experience,” said Georgi Shulev, Nexo’s Managing Partner. “The partnership between Nexo and UTRUST is intended to correct this deficiency and empower buyers and merchants alike to tap into the unlimited capabilities of blockchain and cryptocurrencies.”

Nexo helps crypto investors unlock the value of their wealth by providing them with instant loans in USD, EUR and USDT (Tether) against their crypto-holdings. By securing their assets in the Nexo Platform, rather than selling them, clients obtain immediate access to cash and keep the upside of future value appreciation of their cryptocurrencies and tokens. The concept has quickly gained an enormous following amongst crypto miners, hedge funds, ICO companies and many more. Investors of all sizes and nationalities have found various reasons why Nexo is their first association with crypto-backed loans.

While blockchain payments have undoubtedly disrupted financial transactions with their speed and low fees, UTRUST adds a much-needed consumer protection layer.

Benefits for Consumer and Merchants

UTRUST LOGOUTRUST’s platform enables consumers to enjoy the comfort of paying with cryptocurrencies in a secure way. It acts as a third-party mediator, holding funds on each payment until the seller delivers the product or service. In addition, it protects buyers and sellers from market volatility, by converting cryptocurrencies to fiat immediately after payment.

The company allows for friendly dispute resolutions between buyers and sellers. In case the parties fail to reach an agreement, UTRUST steps in and refunds the buyer, upholding standards like those of Paypal.

Integrating Nexo’s crypto-backed lending capabilities within the UTRUST payment platform benefits all parties in a number of ways:

  • Consumers can make purchases with cryptocurrencies while keeping their crypto assets and enjoying any value appreciation;
  • Merchants can increase their revenues by offering more flexible payment options, seamlessly adding a revolving line of credit to their stores without no extra cost or effort;
  • In broader terms, the service will further enhance cryptocurrencies’ real-world applications and pave the way for mass adoption.
