Los ejecutivos de Ripple ahora son multimillonarios gracias al éxito de XRP

Published

on

A medida que el valor total de la industria de la moneda digital supera los $ 600 mil millones, han aparecido decenas de nuevos millonarios (e incluso multimillonarios). Dos de los multimillonarios más nuevos que han disfrutado de enormes ganancias derivadas del éxito de XRP son los actuales y anteriores CEOs de Ripple, Chris Larsen y Brad Garlinghouse.

Nota del autor: ¿Y como no va a ser millonarios? Si tienen el 61% de las criptomonedas, además del respaldo de entidades financieras, principalmente de mercados asiáticos.

Larsen es el cofundador y ex CEO de la compañía. Él bajó de esa posición a fines de 2016 y ahora se desempeña como presidente ejecutivo, según Forbes. La participación personal de Larsen es de 5.19 billones de XRP, lo que le da una participación del 17% en Ripple. De acuerdo con la tasa de cambio de XRP a partir del 1 de enero de 2018, esto significa que sus tenencias netas valen $ 37.3 mil millones, lo que lo coloca en el puesto 15 en la lista de estadounidenses más ricos.

El actual CEO de Ripple es Brad Garlinghouse, que posee una participación de los 6,3% reportadas en la compañía, así como tokens XRP adicionales. Su valor neto, basado en la tasa actual, sería de casi $ 10 mil millones, colocándolo en la mitad de los 50 en la lista de Forbes de los estadounidenses más ricos.

Chris Larsen y Brad Garlinghouse pueden haber visto los mayores beneficios de sus tenencias de Ripple, pero no son los únicos que se han beneficiado significativamente de las ganancias estelares de XRP.

Jed McCaleb, otro cofundador de Ripple, dejó la empresa en 2013 pero conserva 5.300 millones de XRP a partir de febrero de 2016. Debido a un acuerdo que limita su volumen diario de operaciones, no puede acceder a todas estas tenencias; de lo contrario, también sería un multimillonario.

Ripple incrementa un 30,000%

Ripple tiene su sede en San Francisco y utiliza la tecnología blockchain para facilitar las transacciones financieras internacionales. Ripple ganó aproximadamente un 30,000% desde el inicio de 2017 hasta el inicio de 2018. En el proceso, pasó el token de éter de Ethereum como la segunda moneda digital más grande por capitalización bursátil.

Los primeros inversionistas en todo tipo de monedas digitales observan cómo su valor neto crece como bitcoin, ether y Ripple, entre otras monedas digitales, todas ganancias posteriores masivas y establecen nuevos récords de precios.

Si bien muchos de los millonarios de monedas digitales recién creados deben su fortuna a las inversiones en bitcoin, la moneda digital más grande del mundo por capitalización bursátil no es la única que ha hecho que algunas personas sean muy ricas. Específicamente, las ganancias significativas que Ripple (XRP) ha publicado en los últimos meses pueden haber aumentado significativamente la riqueza de ciertos desarrolladores y partes interesadas.

Marshal Lion expands to China

Published

on

Marshal Lion Group is a company that dared to transfer its achievements in fiat finance to the blockchain platform. The company has been operating since 2015 in the non-bank lending market. During this time, more than 10 thousand satisfied customers made up the company’s portfolio. But there could have been even more of them, if not the well-known problems: the need for guarantees, intermediaries, the involvement of third parties, lengthy coordination and clarification.

Marshal Lion Group found a solution for these problems – this is blockchain. Everything is transparent, fast, and therefore cheap. With the use of the blockchain platform, the Marshal Lion Group provides loan requirements for enterprises, individuals, private and public sector. Blockchain opens up new opportunities for customers, without new risks to the company. Decision time is reduced many times. Time-consuming processes are automated by smart contracts. Blockchain is used in three main areas of work according to the B2B model:

Private sector, with loans for a period of a month to 6 months;

Public sector, loans for 3 to 6 months;

Hybrid loans – loans for 1 to 6 months.

An innovative solution on the blockchain expands the area of the Marshal Lion Group. Therefore, its own MLGC token has been launched. The token allows investors to participate in the company’s business and receive up to 50% of the profits from the sale of its products. 1.25% of tokens are directed to the airdrop – 120 tokens per participant (about $30)

Furor in the Middle Kingdom   

The business visit of Marshal Lion Group management to China is justified in many respects. China is the second economy; Chinese business is known for large investments around the world. The blockchain community is also largely formed by the citizens of the Middle Kingdom. The presentation of the Marshal Lion Group project for the largest players in China’s cryptocurrency market hit like a bombshell.

Obviously, the Chinese did not expect this from a European country. Meetings at the largest ICA and ICF funds ultimately resulted in ICA co-founder Jason Hung became an adviser to the Marshal Lion Group (MLGC) project.

Here is his opinion,

In the Middle Kingdom, the Marshal Lion Group also held fruitful meetings with the management of large exchanges, such as OKEx, BitForex, IDAX. In fact, this means that the MLGC token listing issue is no longer a problem.

Blockchain PR — The Untold Story

Published

on

The lives of marketers were beautiful until blockchain PR came.

From running a marketing campaign without intense time pressure and insane competition, to releasing a few PR articles on a daily basis, focusing on dozens of different social media platforms and communities. All of this while looking for ways to overcome the lack of confidence people have in blockchain projects.

In this article, I will tell you the untold story of how traditional PR shifted to online marketing and how the blockchain industry required its own unique strategy.

Over the last three years, I have worked with dozens of blockchain companies helping them to raise millions of dollars and successfully complete their ICO/IEO/STO.

Traditional PR:

Traditional PR was used before the internet era. A few examples of traditional PR would be: word of mouth, telemarketers, radio, television ads, posters, banners, etc…

Nowadays, traditional marketing refers to any type of promotion that has a proven success rate.

Even with traditional PR seeing a decline in the last few years, it’s still a great way for companies to reach their local audience, whilst allowing larger businesses to expand their brand.

Digital PR:

The internet opened new ways for PR agencies to promote their clients on a scale they couldn’t imagine before.

Companies could display ads at the houses of the clients, inside their computers.

Sites like Google and Facebook built great platforms for marketers to promote their clients and run measurable ad campaigns.

For the first time in history, a business could know that there’s a high chance of receiving a $1.2 return, on a $1 investment.

In the traditional PR world, nothing is guaranteed.

You could pay $100k for a commercial on TV that will get you no sales, and another commercial could generate $300k in returns.

The uncertainty and the high costs of traditional PR made many businesses avoid the risks and high costs that are involved. That’s why digital PR became so popular. Many businesses who would never imagine of investing in traditional PR, suddenly started running ads campaigns on Google and Facebook.

Blockchain PR:

With the rise of cryptocurrencies, many new projects joined the blockchain ecosystem. The way ICOs fundraising was designed was that each project had a limited amount of time to raise funds.

In addition, the largest social media platforms out there announced they wouldn’t allow ads related to cryptocurrencies on their platform.

The high competition, time pressures and the ban by social media helped to shape a new PR approach: Blockchain PR.

When I first got into blockchain I immediately noticed how digital PR is not 100% suitable for this industry.

It felt like a combination of traditional and digital PR.

Companies try to target many different social media platforms, but because of insane time pressure, they couldn’t measure the impact of their campaigns.

Blockchain companies have spent enormous amounts on marketing with the sole purpose of creating a lot of buzz in the crypto community and with the hope that it will drive investors into their ICO/IEO/STO.

The Result:

Companies were producing poor content that gave no value to the readers. The majority of the companies didn’t reach their fundraising target. After many ICOs fooled their investors and disappeared with the money the ICO bubble burst.

Those actions destroyed the confidence of investors in blockchain projects.

That’s when I saw an opportunity.

I began working on developing unique ways to run effective blockchain PR campaigns and came up with a few conclusions:

Down To Earth: 

In Blockchain PR, projects need to stop talking about how great they are and how they will change the world.

Instead, they should be honest with their community and investors, share with them the progress and even difficulties of the project.

Distribution: 

One of the advantages of the blockchain world is the number of active communities with crypto enthusiasts.

On Steemit, Reddit, and BitcoinTalk companies can find thousands of potential investors and people who might care about their company.

The goal is to know how to push content Blockchain PR articles in those communities in a way which wouldn’t be considered spam, whilst giving value to the community members.

SEO: 

Many blockchain companies fail because of a lack of understanding when it comes to SEO.

When a company spends high amounts on PR they should think about three things:

  • Does this content have a chance to be ranked? If so, in which search term?
  • Does this content help my company to grow its brand?
  • Does the content give value to the readers? If so, are they likely to share it?

Keep In Mind That

Marketing is expensive and your budget is not endless.

When you involve SEO strategy in your blockchain PR, you increase the chance that your content will drive traffic to your site weeks/months after the article was published.
