Start-up from the heart of Berlin has pioneered decentralized mobile mining by combining blockchain with regenerative energy

envion logo blockchainStart-up from the heart of Berlin has pioneered decentralized mobile mining by combining blockchain with regenerative energy

Envion AG has created a technology for the first truly mobile data-center that uses low-priced local energy to mine a broad spectrum of cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.). By harvesting locally available clean energy right at the source, envion can operate at lower costs than competitors and at the same time reduces the CO2 footprint of the blockchain industry. Envion aims at decentralizing the highly-concentrated mining market (China holds 80% in Bitcoin mining) and at bringing control of the market back to the users. That’s why envion gives 100% of its mining profits back to its community.

Current challenges in the energy and blockchain industries

The blockchain industry is suffering from an ever-increasing energy demand. This can mainly be explained by the fact that transactions take up high amounts of mostly fossil energy. At the same time, Envion sees an ever-increasing production of clean regenerative energy, which frequently gets lost due to maxed out energy grids. This results in locally available excess energy, as solar power plants produce overcapacities. These overcapacities can now efficiently be used by envion’s innovative mobile mining units.

Envion’s solutions

Envion has developed fully automated (“industry 4.0”), mobile mining units (MMU) inside standardized intermodal shipping containers that can be shipped to virtually any location in the world within days or weeks, decentralizing the blockchain infrastructure. Envion mobile mining units are designed and built to operate at remote locations near energy sources such as solar plants, wind turbines or hydropower plants. This allows envion to make use of energy overcapacities in a profitable setting. The mobility of the MMU furthermore allows for targeted placement of the units at sites requiring thermal energy and can be used for heating. This way, envion recycles energy consumed in the MMU for external heating purposes in buildings or greenhouses and achieves revolutionarily low electricity prices.

Envion’s MMUs can be integrated into a smart grid and flexibly move energy demand closer to energy supply and hence, take the burden off the grid.

Investment opportunities

Envion’s ambitious goal is to have the lowest cost structure in the blockchain mining industry. By combining GPU-based mining with ASIC mining, investors in EVN tokens receive a 161% ROI after administrative deductions, according to envion’s whitepaper. Its unique position as the only truly mobile mining operation combined with a tested, optimized and streamlined technology puts them among the top players, even in this highly competitive market – but with considerably lower risks involved. The key aspect here is that, following a community-approach, 100% of mining profits will directly go to the EVN token holder community. 75% of this will be distributed to token holders on a weekly basis, the remaining 25% will be re-invested in MMUs to keep on growing the profits for the community. The pioneering company does not stop here, however, they construct and operate mobile mining units for third party operations as well. This means that third party investors acquire envion hardware, while 35% of these profits go directly to EVN token holders.

Altogether this looks like the best way to invest into the high dividend blockchain industry and at the same time minimize risks as envion is not dependent on a single market player.

The investment period (ICO) starts Dec. 1st, 2017. Visit www.envion.org for more information.

The First Gas Station to Accept Crypto

Mexico’s state-owned petroleum company PEMEX, will accept Ethereum at participating gas stations starting December 1st, 2017. Franchisee owners will launch the pilot using Beluga Pay’s mobile point of sale system that is currently in private beta.

PEMEX is one of the world’s largest non-publicly traded companies, has over 100,000 employees and enjoys a virtual monopoly over exploration and gas pumps across Mexico.

“We are proud to integrate cryptocurrency payments within such an established business as PEMEX and by 2018, Beluga tokenholders will be able to share the fees on our platform ” says Beluga Pay CEO, Alejandro Avila.

Beluga Pays Goals During the Pilot

Our goal with the pilot is to have sufficient data and customer feedback to present to key decision makers at PEMEX for a full-scale implementation.

Additional pilot details:

  • The PEMEX Pilot starts on December 1, 2017 with one gas station using Beluga Pay. The gas station is open 24 hours a day and can be found here.
  • Beluga Pay plans to have 5 gas station using Beluga Pay by the end of January 2018.
  • Beluga Pay is targeting to onboard over 100 gas stations using Beluga Pay.

Overview on PEMEX

PEMEX was founded in 1938 and is the state-owned petroleum company that has a virtual monopoly on petroleum exploration and gas stations in Mexico.
In 2006, Financial Times reported PEMEX having assets of $415B USD (source: FT.com). PEMEX employs over 100,000 people in Mexico.

Deal Mechanics with PEMEX Gas Stations

Beluga Pay CEO, Alejandro Avila, at the first PEMEX station to accept ETH in Mexico.

Beluga Pay is working directly with franchisee owners. Below are additional details on pilot specifics:

A risk of working directly with franchisee owners in a bottom-up approach is that we will need more sales people to educate stakeholders. On the positive side, we can acquire direct customer feedback from franchisee owners and implement product updates faster versus a top-down approach.

Most PEMEX gas stations already use a third party processor and this pilot would only be able to help users transact with cryptocurrency.

Beluga Pay will be doing all the settlement instantly directly with the franchisee owners. At first, Beluga Pay will have a cash reserve with the merchant, in this case the merchant carries little to no risk.

Since this is the first pilot of its kind we are acting as the guarantor of the transaction and providing instant fiat payments to the franchisee owners (merchants).

As the merchants see the system working and trust the process we can offer various forms of payments and direct settlements.

Why PEMEX Needs the Blockchain

“The duty of youth is to challenge corruption”. -Kurt Cobain
PEMEX is state-owned and accounts for a large part of Mexico’s income, we believe these funds flowing in a transparent manner will benefit Mexican citizens.

We believe that if we are able to make inroads with franchisee owners and PEMEX we could be in a position to provide transparency on all funds (FIAT, Cash and Crypto) being processed by PEMEX.

Source: VICE News

PEMEX loses between $5B–10B in petroleum theft annually. VICE has a good documentary monitoring the situation. Blockchain could help to control and monitor the supply and ensure that reporting discrepancies do not happen.

Next stop: Global

We are humbled to see over 50 countries and 1,800 registered buyers already participating in our tokensale and the amount of interest generated to take our product global from United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Japan, Panama, Brazil, Egypt and more.

We are already in partnership discussions with several banking partners and merchants who would like to use Beluga Pay products as their point of sale system in several different parts of the world.

Beluga Pay believes that financial inclusion starts with merchants accepting multiple payment options- including FIAT, Crypto and Credit — all in one mobile point of sale system.

The Beluga Pay pre-sale is live with a 20% bonus https://www.BelugaPay.com

DropDeck.io – The Future of Funding is AI-driven, Decentralized, and Incentivized

“Everyone wants to fund promising companies. DropDeck wants to remove the barriers that keep average funders away from the greatest opportunities,” said the CEO Alon Vo, “There are a lot of existing platforms for you to do that, but we want to build your favorite one. DropDeck is the one-stop shop that changes the way people fund companies worldwide.”

More and more companies are running ICOs, mostly operating overseas. Doing due diligence and verifying sources can be challenging. Some platforms rate and rank ICOs, but how the ratings are made, what they are based on, and by whom are often a blackbox. DropDeck seeks to fix this problem..

DropDeck prioritizes inclusion and decentralizes the funding process to the extreme. Anyone can participate in funding, searching for promising companies, evaluating people, performing due diligence, and enforcing repayment. A.I. algorithms are utilized to rate and rank all participants. The consensus mechanism makes sure only the best performing ones are eligible for participation and reward. Token rewards and smart contracts incentivize all participants to do their best to fund companies and reward funders. In the IBM Watson AI XPRIZE competition, DropDeck earned recognition and support from world-class AI experts, and made findings in complementing AI applications with blockchain features.

The market for funding ICOs, startups, and SMEs is over $300 billion. As capital flows into the DropDeck economy, the token value will increase exponentially. Up to half of the revenue in tokens will be burned, increasing the token value by depleting the total supply. Also the team and advisors have been working with 15 exchanges to guarantee token liquidity.

After substantial interest, DropDeck quickly sold out the private sales with no marketing, raising 3,300 ETH.

To participate in the Whitelist Presale and Crowdsale, supporters are required to register by November 20th (13:00 UTC) at https://DropDeck.io/whitelist.

Blockchain Revolution for the $200B Loyalty Market

Retainly is fast building the first Customer Retention Platform that businesses across the world can use to manage their Loyalty Programs automatically. Retainly’s Marketing Automation platform is already disrupting many of the established giants like Intercom, MailChimp, and HubSpot. With Collie, the Loyalty Platform, Retainly will be offering the first product to be adopted by all Online Businesses and those businesses that intend to quickly convert their legacy loyalty systems. Collie is being built with a decentralized token called RETN, and using distributed app technology for Blockchain, merchants around the Globe will be able to reward their customers in one currency.

So you may be spending on Amazon or Etsy, or spending on QuickBooks or Workday, or spending at a retail giant, or buying tickets with airlines, all your Loyalty points will now be converted into one single account. No more store credits or discount vouchers, your points are now as good as cash.

Retainly is designed to cater to the entire digital marketing landscape, starting from Lead Generation, to Lead Engagement & Conversion, to Customer Retention. The Customer Retention Block currently has AI driven behavioral marketing, which will be augmented with Virus – The Viral Referral marketing platform, and Collie – The Loyalty Marketing Platform.

The RET Token is used to power the Collie platform and works as a means to reward or get rewarded for Referral Marketing and Loyalty Marketing programs. The Merchant decides the point for every activity performed by their customers. The Merchant also decides the value of each point based on RET exchange rate. Merchants first populate their Collie platform by purchasing RET. Their customers automatically get to see their Reward Points in real-time and can choose when to redeem it from their Wallet by clicking a button. As the merchant’s wallet depletes, they get auto notifications to populate their Wallet. Alternatively, they can also choose a maximum threshold of auto-population into their Wallet.

Retainly’s CEO and Founder, Palash Bagchi shared that RET provides a safe, seamless experience for all Internet businesses and SaaS companies. He then quoted, “

 “The common man needs to be rewarded for every transaction. That reward should be cash and not another store credit. Imagine all people on this planet getting rewarded into a single currency for every transaction they do, no matter where.”

“Virus” application is ready and planned to be released before Pre ICO Sale while the roadmap for “Collie” is in place and set to hit the market in March 2018. Retainly’s mission is to build a decentralized marketing automation platform and bring distributed apps to the mainstream, with extremely easy and user-friendly tools that will make more and more people use Cryptocurrencies.

The NAU platform will save retailers from marketing middlemen

A platform that connects businesses and consumers through a CPA model that is beneficial for retailers and a coupon model that is appealing to users is going into it’s pre-ICO stage. The platform guarantees a high degree of reliability and transparency because it is based on the Blockchain technology.

The CPA model is very beneficial for retailers because they can pay for a target actions made by a clients and can easily calculate profits. Though, due to setup difficulties and relatively high expenses, the CPA model can only really be implemented successfully by large businesses. Which means that small retailers like bakeries, hair salons, coffee shops, etc, are forced to market their services and products through traditional advertising means (Media commercials, social networks, and contextual ads), these marketing techniques require a significant amount of funds, but in no way do they guarantee an increase in earnings.

The NAU team is creating a fair and mutually beneficial platform on which entrepreneurs will be able to attract clients without having to rely on intermediaries. They will be able to save money on marketing and directly reward their partners-users for referring new clients to their business on the platform.

NAU will allow all users to participate in any retailers offer and share information about the specific business and the NAU platform. Thus, each client will indirectly become a promoter of the business and will gain rewards from retailers for bringing their friends and acquaintances to the platform.

In turn, retailers will gain access to their target audience and will only have to pay for real leads that actually make purchases, as per the CPA model.
Principles of how the NAU platform operates:

Retailers generate special offers for potential clients in the form of discounts, bonuses or free second items. The retailers use NAU tokens to pay for each redemption of the offers.

Consumers find retailers through the mobile application with geolocational module or website. The beta version of the mobile application will be available for use two weeks after the ICO is finished.

Users will receive a 95% reward in tokens for each user that they refer to the platform that takes advantage of a retailer’s offer. The NAU platform receives the other 5% from the amount of tokens awarded to the referrer.

NAU tokens will be used as a reward for attracting new clients and as a payment method for broadening a retailer’s marketing. Additionally, they will be added to an exchange. It is planned that the tokens will be used to pay for special offers in the future. This, coupled with the absence of additional hidden emission will lead to a continuous growth in the price of NAU tokens.
What benefits can be drawn by NAU ecosystem participants?

  • Users of the platform will be able to save money by taking advantage of retailer’s offers. Additionally, they will be rewarded for drawing new consumers into the platform.
  • Entrepreneurs will pay for real target actions – such as purchases or orders via special offers. NAU also provides special channels through which retailers can reach their target audience, as well as a convenient and flexible tool for creating unique offers.
  • Publishers and opinion leaders will be able to monetize on their followers effectively. For even more conversions, NAU provides an API for targeting subscribers with offers that they are most likely interested in.
  • Agents and freelancers will be able to offer their clients a new and highly effective marketing instrument. They will be able to decrease the cost of acquiring new leads for clients thanks to the effectiveness of the platform.
  • Investments in ICO will be profitable because the platform will go into a viral effect and continuous marketing efforts will stimulate its growth.

How will the ICO work

The public pre-ICO starts on the 1st of November and will end on the 27th of November, 2017.
The price of 1 NAU token will be 0.04 USD
Bonus: 35%
Minimum investment: no minimum

Public ICO Will start on the 29th of November 2017 and will conclude on the 29th of December 2017.
The cost of 1 NAU token will be 0.04-0.06 USD depending on which stage the ICO is in.
Bonus: no
Minimum investment: no minimum

Total amount of NAU tokens that will be available for purchase: 1 000 000 000
Additional emissions:
45 million tokens will be distributed among advisors (20 million with a lockup period of 12 months) Marketing and promotional funds (20 million), Bounty campaign participants — testers and security specialists (5 million)
24% of the total amount of tokens sold during the ICO will go to the team and will be locked up for a period of 6 months and slowly unlocked at a rate of 1% each month.

  • Social media companies are working around the clock on this paradigm shift.
  • Send crypto simply and securely to friends and family in an instant message with Tigereum.

Enter the Tiger!

Tigereum is developing smooth customer interfaces for everyone to simply and securely send crypto socially to friends and family by instant message as easily as they would a photo on Facebook.

Tigereum’s target market is the average person who doesn’t use crypto yet but wants to get involved and can’t work it all out!  We aim to solve this problem by building improved customer interfaces for crypto which are like the social media platforms used every day.  This will help more people get into crypto and grow the crypto pie.

Tigereum believes that crypto developers should deliver better customer interfaces than social media companies. Crypto already has the answers to a decentralized, borderless, secure, digital, global currency which can be messaged to anyone, anywhere.  Crypto’s competitive advantages should make messaging money cheaper and easier for everyone.  The crypto community should jump on the instant messaging paradigm shift, and not leave messaging money to the social media companies.

Tigereum will faithfully adopt the key principles of the crypto world: decentralization, encryption, security, anonymity and community.

Tigereum Tokens will be the cryptocurrency used to send crypto to friends and family in an instant message. Senders will buy Tigereum Tokens to message money. Recipients will redeem Tigereum Tokens into their preferred crypto or fiat currency to receive their money. The mechanisms for this to occur securely and efficiently will be developed further through the course of this project.

There will be fifty million (50,000,000) Tigereum Tokens created. Up to forty million (40,000,000) of these will be swapped for ETH under the Token Swap program beginning on Friday 8 December. Tigereum Tokens will be listed on public cryptocurrency exchanges, starting with EtherDelta. This listing is scheduled for Monday 18 December 2017 (the Close Date for the Token Swap).

Tigereum Tokens will be listed on other exchanges promptly after Monday 18 December 2017 to maximise trading opportunities for Tigereum Token holders.

AdHive, a mass-scale native video advertising platform announcing ICO

AdHive, an AI-driven influencer marketing platform, announces the ICO of ADH, its platform-wide cryptocurrency. The start of the Token Presale is scheduled for January 10, 2018 at 14:00 UTC and will last until January 27, 2018 at 14:00 UTC, with plans to issue 450,000,000 ADH at the initial exchange rate of 2,000 ADH per 1 ETH. This is the final amount of tokens, and all unsold quantities will be burned.

The new coin will benefit both the advertisers and bloggers: the former will appreciate transparency and accountability of smart contracts, and hassle-free international campaigns while the latter will enjoy clear, reliable monetization models and near-instant transactions.

To allow businesses to scale their native ad efforts efficiently, AdHive brings together the powers of AI and community. When advertiser places a task, the algorithm does all the legwork by monitoring influencer feeds (video blogs, livestreams, Instagram) for visual and audio evidence (key words, product images etc.) of completion and pays participating bloggers in ADH automatically. At the same time, members of community can earn ADH by assessing the quality of native advertising more thoroughly.

“Blockchain in ads (as it is with other fields) ensures transparency in the execution of campaigns and financial settlements. Using a single token for all transactions allows advertisers to easily launch international campaigns. ADH will solve the problem of cross-border payments and the issue of micropayments by significantly decreasing transactional and conversion fees compared to traditional payment methods. Additionally, token payments are attractive for such important group of advertisers as existing crypto businesses and projects that are preparing their ICOs”, — comments Vadim Budaev, CoFounder of AdHive.

ICO details

ADH token is a critical element of the platform, the main payment method between the advertisers, the bloggers, and the community. The token reduces operational expenses and accounting costs of large scale, international advertising campaigns. High fees on microtransactions and heavy regulatory paperwork just go away.

The start of the Token Presale is scheduled for January 10, 2018 at 14:00 UTC and will last until January 27, 2018 at 14:00 UTC. The total amount of placement is 450,000,000 ADH, with capital target around $15 million. No additional tokens will be issued afterwards. The initial exchange rate will be 2,000 ADH for 1 ETH, to be further determined 6 hours ahead of the ICO launch. Unsold tokens will be burned afterwards.

Key points about ADH:

  • ADH is a Ethereum ECR20 token
  • It ranks 10 in Howey Test risk score, “unlikely a security”
  • AdHive uses Bancor protocol to eliminate liquidity risks for token holders
  • Between 25 and 35% of tokens will be made available for ICO participants
    You will find more details about the ICO in the project overview (https://adhive.tv/adhtoken/).
