Open Trading Network Leverages Cross-chain Technology to become the First Ever Platform to Unite all Blockchain Networks

Open Trading Network, the first 100% collateralized decentralized exchange, is breaking new grounds in the industry by making exchanges between the blockchain networks fast and secure like never before. The company’s vision is to build a set of applications aimed at making the crypto world open to the common man and all market participants.

November 28, 2017

Open Trading Network Foundation, a non-profit organization based out of Zug, Switzerland, is all set to revolutionize the rapidly expanding global crypto economy by developing a secure system combining numerous isolated blockchain networks into a unified open network. World’s first 100% collateralized decentralized exchange, OTN will allow instant transactions between a wide myriad of blockchain networks. Open Trading Network Foundation claims that this innovation will make lives easier for businesses, individuals, traders, and regulator, while addressing the need for speed and liquidity.

The global market for cryptocurrency has developed at a breakneck speed in the recent years with an exponential growth in the number of cryptocurrencies. The objective of OTN is to make the benefits of this growing crypto economy available to common users and all market participants. They want to accomplish this by creating a set of mass market applications for efficient management of crypto assets, performing cross-market transactions, secure storage of savings, accessing the global marketplace, working with tokenized loyalty systems, and making purchases from a crypto wallet.

The maiden product from the network, OTN.Wallet is in the final stages of development, and expected to be launched very soon.  This multi-currency wallet will serve as a universal tool to store and exchange all types of cryptocurrencies or digital assets.  Users will also enjoy several other important features such as fast and safe transactions, a balanced portfolio, direct exchange, P2P transfers, analytical tools, profitability reports, asset tokenization and detokenization, and much more.

Following the launch of OTN.Wallet, the network’s next two products OTN.Business and OTN.Exchange are expected to arrive shortly. OTN Business is a business application supporting several widely-used operations, including issuing tokens and listing them on exchanges, issuing tokenized loyalty cards, crowdfunding, tokenization of services, integrating payment schemes that use a large number of tokens and cryptocurrencies, integrating custom centralized matching engines, etc.  Whereas, the OTN Exchange will enable superfast placement or orders, maintaining complete transparency of all orders.

Instead of following the common path of collecting funds via an ICO, Open Trading Network has been created in partnership with the distinguished trading business IQ Option. In addition to financing the creation of the network, IQ Option is also providing the platform for its first commercial use.

Staring from October 7, 2017, Open Trading Network Foundation has initiated the process of issuing a total of 100 million OTN tokens every Monday and over the following 104 weeks. The exact distribution plan for the tokens is as follows.

  • 42 million to the holders, traders and wallet users on the OTN platform
  • 28 million to the shareholders and IQ Option team members
  • 30 million will remain with the OTN foundation for the purpose of future distribution and attract strategic partners.

ShipChain Using Blockchain to Change the Shipping & Logistics Market

January 1 will be the start of the Public Sale for ShipChain, the project that will use blockchain to change the shipping & logistics market.

ShipChain encompass all methods of freight, and will include an open API architecture that can integrate with existing freight management software.

Simply put, it’s a fully integrated system across the entire supply chain, from the moment a shipment leaves the factory, to the final delivery on the customer’s doorstep; trustless architecture, and transparent blockchain smart contracts.The movement of goods has a significant and growing influence on the daily lives of people around the world.

According to a market report published by Transparency Market Research, “The market’s global value was $8.1 trillion in 2015, and is expected to grow to $15.5 trillion by 2023 , making it one of the largest industries on the planet. The industry is currently 10% of the United States GDP.

Today, the supply chain has serious bottlenecks. The lack of a unified platform prevents the various players from interacting efficiently. Most of the participants in the supply chain use outdated ways to track their shipments. Given that upwards of 65% of the value of a company’s products or services is derived from its suppliers and its supply chain, utilizing older highly ineffective systems results in tremendous amounts of wasted time, resources, and money.

ShipChain was established to address the most significant problems facing the logistics industry today.   The fully integrated system will track across the entire supply chain–from the moment it leaves the factory, field, or farm–to delivering the finished product to the customer’s doorstep; a  trustless system, and transparent blockchain contracts.

The ShipChain system  uses an Ethereum smart contract that can be used by anyone to orchestrate a shipping escrow on the distributed ledger. The overall shipment completion will be stored on the main Ethereum blockchain, and to keep costs low, individual tracking waypoints and load data can be stored and verified in an associated side-chain operating on the ShipChain Protocol, such as the one ShipChain Foundation.” Large partners will be able to operate their own ShipChain side-chains, with aid from ShipChain Foundation.

Public sale will be held in January 2018. 29.17 million SHIP tokens will be sold.It is planned to raise approximately $10 million in ETH. $0.342 per token is the ICO price.

Trucking startup Doft is reportedly working on a mining protocol

Silicon Valley truck-sharing startup, DOFT (Do Freight Transportation), is working on the mining protocol pursuing the goal of obtaining the critical mass of movement needed for the collaborative transportation web to become operational, as well as to create and fairly distribute Doftcoin tokens among the trucking community.

There are two basic ways to increase number of active truck drivers in the system: A) Collect geo-location big data which is shared by drivers who run the Doft app while driving a truck.  B) Growing the drivers’ community so that more people send their location data. Both actions are being rewarded with Doftcoins through the Doft Driver application. In this way, early adopters of Doft network are gaining value and thus being incentivized to take part in the establishment of the network before its technological benefit takes effect and the transport service is available.

Once the critical mass of movement is reached in a certain geographical region the truck-sharing and other smart transportation services will become instantly enabled in the region. The rate of distribution of Doftcoin via movement-based mining is designed to encourage the growth of local Doft communities. Thus, it is proportional not only to the distance you are driving, but also to the growth of the community in your area motivating users to promote the Doft network in their own region.

Doft is also running an ICO campaign offering its tokens with a 75% bonus during New Year holidays. Bonus will be available starting from December 27, 4:00PM UTC.  Anyone can become an owner of Doftcoins (DFC) and enjoy the benefits of being a part of the transportation community.

The Doftcoin token will be used to access all the services and products provided by the platform. Today Doft accepts only USD when a customer pays for the services. In the nearest future Doftcoins will become a number one payment method within the network.

About – Doft

Doft – a Silicon Valley based startup – developed a mobile app for the trucking industry that provides freight matching services. The on-demand instant freight and truck matching application has been labelled the “Uber of trucking.” Doft aims to improve the lives of truckers and provide ever-increasing value to shippers and carriers through its peer-to-peer service. Doft is changing the way American truckers and shippers work together, they are now taking it further with a Doft ICO crowdfunding campaign which will be live until January 1, 2018 0:00 AM UTC. Doft naturally adapted this concept to funding, allowing Doft’s users to be part of the project by contributing and receiving Doftcoins (DFC), which can later be used within Doft to pay for services and goods in Doft App for shippers and truckers, Load Board and Doft Store where Doft, being an authorized Garmin reseller, sells trucking related goods.

Blockchain gambling machine placed in the land-based casino

In the network appeared news that one of the offline casinos has placed a test model of the world’s first slot machine, fully working on blockchain technology. The futuristic style terminal developed by represents the hardware realization of classical European roulette table.

Many online casinos have already switched to cryptocurrencies and invest millions of euros in the rapidly developing bitcoin market. For example, the PlayAmo platform spent $ 2.5 million to expand its services to include bitcoin payments offering attractive promotions and bonuses to its customers.

According to the international analytical resource TheBitcoinStrip, about 60% of the current transactions in the Bitcoin network are occupied by gambling bets, and the number of transactions made by gamblers per second has exceeded the mark of 337.

Such popularity of the cryptocurrency in gambling is caused by the absence of additional commissions, security of funds and unlimited withdrawals. But can the appearance of bitcoin completely reverse the view of how we used to see the casino?

The company answered this question, challenging the traditional gambling. “In order to completely revolutionize the gambling industry, it is necessary to integrate new generation technologies such as Blockchain and Lightning Network, which will make casino activities more profitable for the operator and attractive to the player. We have a technical solution based on the ready-made software, which we can offer to big players in the offline market in the form of full-fledged equipment. ”

The project team has already announced its intention to launch a full line of new SmartBox machines, to which other games can be connected, for example, online slots, blackjack, bingo or poker. Now the company is at the stage of negotiations with the game design studios and slot machines developers. For the purpose of expanding the presence in the market is undergoing the process of legal registration of project activities.

The basic configuration of SmartBox machine includes a touch screen gaming table, a terminal for depositing fiat money, and a QR scanner for connecting cryptocurrency wallets. The gambling software is developed on the technology of blockchain, which has been successfully tested in products. In particular, a model of operational efficiency which ensures that casino profits are always higher than its costs by optimizing transaction commissions to a minimum market price of a few cents was proved in practice.

The first sample of the machine has already been put on closed testing in a land-based casino in order to measure the performance indicators of blockchain technology in the real economy of a gambling establishment. Within the testing it is planned to obtain actual data, including game time, average spending, turnover, number of players, and also make a portrait of the target consumer. In the case of a successful experiment, mass production of full-fledged SmartBox machine will be launched.

“SmartBox looks pretty reliable and I can see the technology is going forward, so I give my thumbs up and hope everybody can join as well,” says Philipe Comini, CEO of the Gimmer project, an algorithmic trading platform for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, “it’s a very revolutionary technology introducing the blockchain on gambling, and I’m really watching for SmartBox.”

The preliminary success of the decision is conditioned, among other things, by the doubtless benefits for the casino. After all, the gambling establishment significantly reduces the cost of maintaining staff, automating the processes with the help of smart contracts. SmartBox does not need an accountant, a cashier, or a croupier, which saves large structures at least $ 200,000 a year. By saving money, the casino will be able to pay higher winnings, attracting a greater flow of visitors.

Now in the course of closed testing, players do not spend real money and do not receive real rewards. However, after the full-scale launch of SmartBox, bets and winnings will be available not only in cryptocurrencies, but also in shares of in the form of RLT tokens.

By the way, RLT is automatically added as a bonus to each bet made regardless of the outcome of the game. Thus, each player becomes a partner and gains profit from the growth of the company’s capitalization and the cryptocurrency rate.  At the moment, has already paid more than $ 300,000 to players, and the rate of the RLT token, which is traded on the LiveCoin exchange, just the day after the announcement of the SmartBox launch increased by 7 times.

As for the market share claimed by, the game market volume is 88% in land-based casino versus 12% for online platforms. This means that the launch of the world’s first slot cryptomachine and RLT tokens have great prospects compared to analogues on the online casino market.

Betex Blockchain P2P Platform Brings Transparency to the Binary Options Market

The market of financial derivatives, including binary options, has always been an attractive one for many people willing to earn money. However, due to the shady schemes and scams, the binary options have lost their reputation and have even been banned in some countries. Now, as the blockchain technology is gaining momentum, many fields are experiencing a rebirth. And this is exactly how Betex is bringing a revolution to how the binary options work. 

Betex Binary Options Platform: How It Works?

Betex is a blockchain peer-to-peer platform for transparent financial derivatives trading. Contrary to the shady traditional models, Betex uses the blockchain technology to keep all the information public and maintain the equal conditions for all the players. Within Betex, users bet against each other, which is recorded in the blockchain, where everyone can have access to. The rates are taken from several liquidity providers/exchanges. Thereby, the platform is not able to manipulate results. 

Thanks to the smart contracts, users do not need to make deposits or wait for the payouts. The bets are made directly to the smart contract, and the payouts are instant to the users’ ETH wallets. 

Finally, users will be forming one shared liquidity pool for each asset, instead of creating multiple ones. 95% of funds are distributed among traders who make correct assumptions, while Betex charges only 5% commission. 

To vividly show the advantages of the common liquidity pool, Betex has already launched 2 MVPs in the test net: and

How Betex Can Be Profitable? 

Being transparent and provably fair, Betex is creating a win-win solution for traders and brokers. Traders can constantly earn by correctly indicating the short- or medium-term trend in the price change of the asset. The size of the trader’s reward is limited only by the volume of the general pool of rates and the ratio of the number of bets to each of the outcomes. 

Brokers receive a 2% commission of the total amount of their users’ bets. The larger the turnover, the more earnings a broker gets. Thereby, the white label mechanism provided by Betex allows to quickly set up the platform under their own name, as well as get technical support. 

The last but not least, investors in Betex can also profit from the exchange through participation in its ICO.  

Betex Token Sale Details

To raise funds for the platform’s development and promotion, Betex is holding an ICO campaign and selling BETEX tokens. 2.5% of the platform’s turnover will be distributed among the BETEX tokens holders, according to their investments.

The New Blockchain Venture That Rewards you for HODLING Your Tokens…

If you’re heavily invested in crypto and you’ve been following the industry closely, you’ve probably heard of the famous bitcointalk post where the concept of ‘HODLING’ was first created.

Since then, the phrase has caught on worldwide. Some ‘experts’ are questioning whether or not the method is successful, while others have been quick to show their support.

But one thing’s for sure…it’s getting a lot of publicity.

Introducing HODLING to ICOs…

We’ve seen people using this method when investing in cryptocurrencies – primarily Bitcoin – but what if we brought it to ICOs too?

Well, that’s exactly what CanYa has created. It’s called The CanYa HODL Club.

In less than a year, ICOs have raised more than $3,000,000,000 – more than 30 times the amount that was raised last year in 2016.

Considering that ICOs were almost unheard of as recently as five years ago, this statistic is staggering.

However, along with the increasing popularity of ICOs, we are seeing a rapid increase in ‘pump-and-dump’ scams that companies are using to get rich fast. Unfortunately, this dissuades honest users, and drives them away from making investments in the future.

This new initiative is designed to convince their users they are here for the long-haul, and that they want their community to join them in their journey.

The premise is simple: members of the HODL club will be rewarded for the length of time they keep their tokens.

After the ICO has ended, users will be rewarded with tokens once per month for the next three months. After this, members will be rewarded with tokens every year.

There is only one catch – once you withdraw any of your tokens from the exchange, you will lose membership to the HODL club, and will no longer be able to take advantage of the rewards.

As the years progress, the number of members in the HODL club will slowly decline as people withdraw their tokens. As a result, each member will receive a higher proportion of tokens with each airdrop. Ultimately, members who stay for a longer will reap most of the rewards.

This is a brand new idea, and CanYa are the first to implement anything like it. However, reception has been overwhelmingly positive.

It might just be the call-to-arms we’ve been waiting for to convince crypto startups to put their money where their mouth is and up their game for future ICOs!

A Brief Insight into a Brand New Global Marketplace…

CanYa is the global peer-to-peer marketplace of blockchain-powered services. The platform is designed to give users the freedom to hire local experts and skilled professionals from anywhere in the world.

It is based on a trustless payment system. The marketplace is a true metoricacy – the best providers get the best work. Meanwhile, lower quality providers are left behind.

The platform was initially founded in November 2015, when the team got together and laid out a plan for a new global marketplace of services – with an emphasis on quality.

CEO and co-founder, John-Paul Thorbjornsen has stated:

“The whole point of CanYa is that it’s quite easy and you can use it as a currency in your daily life; it brings a meaningful reason for users to spend and retail their services with cryptocurrencies.”

By December 2016, the team had released their MVP. By March 2017, they had soft launched in a major Australian city.

The platform now hosts more than 4,000 service providers, including electricians, gardeners, and even crocodile wrestlers, and has over 8,000 users Australia-wide.

The Current State of CanYa’s ICO

CanYa’s ICO is currently underway. It began on the 26th November and will run through until the 26th December. This means there is only 12 days left to get involved.

The funds raised throughout the ICO will be put towards the development of their decentralized platform, and to allow the release of CanYa to the rest of the world beyond Australia.

The ICO is currently going well. So far, sales have exceeded 8,100 ETH – almost half of the 19,333 ETH hard cap. For every ETH you invest in tier 1, users will receive 1,200 CAN.

There is currently under 1000 ETH worth of CAN up for grabs before tier 1 sales end.

Their pre-sale ICO raised more than $1.5 million in less than 24 hours.

There will be an overall total supply of 100 million CAN tokens in circulation.

UK Government plans to develop digital fund for Blockchain

In a press release today the UK government has outlined a long term approach for enhancing the country’s future generation of investment management with one of the key areas focusing on blockchain technology.

The proposal named ‘Investment Management Strategy II’, includes six areas of growth including the development of Asset Management Centre’s of Excellence at various Universities across the UK. The core aim is to strengthen the UK’s investment management pipeline in order to make the country a world leader in Fintech. It would like to achieve this through a digital fund based around blockchain technology.

The UK is often seen as very attractive base for overseas firms who wish to make use of competitive corporation tax rates. The government hopes to further entice new firms and encourage relocation of core business through regulatory incentives which facilitate growth in the blockchain industry.

Employing just shy of 40,000 people and contributing to 1% of the UK’s gross domestic product, the Asset Management industry plays a big role in Britain’s economy.

The Economic Secretary to the Treasury, Stephen Barclay, said:

The UK is a world leader in asset management, and it is vital that we keep it that way. The new Strategy for the sector outlines how we will do this, and I look forward to working closely with the industry to fully realise it’s potential.

Chris Cummings, Chief Executive Officer of the Investment Association said:

We are delighted to welcome the government’s new, ambitious Investment Management Strategy. This strategy will give asset management firms, who collectively manage the pensions of millions of British households and hold the UK’s biggest listed companies to account, a roadmap to success through Brexit and beyond.

Together with the Asset Management Taskforce, this comprehensive strategy provides the opportunity for partnership between Government, industry and regulators to ensure the UK remains the leading European asset management centre. The forward-looking agenda brings a welcome focus on the critical success factors of tomorrow, including harnessing the fintech revolution, encouraging sustainable investment and ensuring a diverse and world-leading workforce.

Domestic excellence will help to boost the industry’s export and trade contribution as the UK looks to a new place in the world. This strategy means our industry will continue to deliver the best possible outcomes for savers and for the UK economy in the years to come.

Another important value of the token is scaling to other countries. Doftcoins will make the expansion process outside the US market much easier.
