BunnyToken: the ‘Bitcoin’ for the Adult Industry

Published

on

Everybody has been talking about BunnyToken and if you haven’t caught wind of it yet it’s about time you do. The ethereum-based payment solution caught the attention of the media and investors this year with its carefully crafted plan that offers real-life value to the project and cryptocurrency. The token sale will begin on the 13th of March and end of the 25th of May.

BunnyToken is a payment solution for the adult industry targeting businesses such as tube sites, dating services, online sex shops and adult webcam platforms. The adult industry makes an annual revenue of $103 billion and is showing no signs of slowing down, but banks and payment solutions have a history of charging accounts from the industry ridiculously high fees, blocking businesses and individuals from their accounts and sometimes completely banning them in the first place. That is where BunnyToken will solve a major problem and offer merchant accounts for all legal businesses in the industry as well as individual workers such as actors and webcam performers all with low fair fees.

Consumers of the industry will enjoy 100% anonymity on all payments done with BunnyToken thanks to the benefits of blockchain. “Everybody watches porn and buys sex toys but unfortunately our society still considers it taboo. Today consumers’ bank accounts continue to be linked to their buying history” co-founder and COO Vasilisa Yakubo said. “We will offer a solution for everyone to indulge in their kinky habits, stress-free”.

The breakout project has already reached its soft cap through a private pre-sale in January of 2018 and has published its MVP which demonstrates how the platform will work. There will be a total supply of 1,000,000,000 BUNNY tokens. 70% will go into the public token sale during which the price will increase by 1% everyday. At the end of initial token sale all unsold tokens will be burned.

Both a referral program and airdrop will offer investors a chance to increase the value of their accounts effortlessly.

“Our project is on the fast lane to becoming a mainstream payment solution and the BunnyToken platform is already in the initial stages of development.” BunnyToken co-founder and CEO Alexander Maslov said. “Our confidence about the potential of BunnyToken is only growing stronger, and we want to take all our investors to the moon with us”.

In our book BunnyToken checks all the boxes; it offers a practical and needed solution, it targets a prospering industry with millions of participants and it guarantees an increase in value by the end of the token sale. Investors can sign up for the token sale on the official website and buy tokens through their secure personal accounts. Pre-registration is already open.

EXCLUSIVE: Bitcoin ETF approval is imminent

Published

on

Could Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) commissioner, Elad Roisman be the missing piece to the approval of Bitcoin ETF? That thought is as a result of a meeting between commissioner Roisman and options exchange CBOE, investment management firm VanEck alongside blockchain technology company SolidX.

The Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) was proposed in June but got denied by the federal regulation. The next deadline for the decision to be made is December, and for now, it seems that the approval confidence is ‘high’.

All issues seem to be resolved, Bitcoin ETF approval imminent

The SEC had highlighted some issues on the bitcoin ETF proposal that they said were the major reasons for the denial. Now if we look at the meeting comments, during the discussion, SolidX, VanEck, and CBOE convinced Roisman that all the cited issues had been addressed and the proposal is ready for approval.

According to sources, the issues raised and cited by SEC concerning the approval of Bitcoin ETF earlier are now fixed; such as the existence of a significant regulated derivatives market for Bitcoin, relevant markets such as bitcoin futures, CBOE, and OTC desks are all regulated. The presentation also emphasized that two other major SEC anxieties including Bitcoin price manipulation concerns mitigation as well as investor protection are ensured now.

Reasons to be Optimistic

First, it’s reported that commissioner Roisman is the first federal regulator to publicly meet with the representatives from the three groups. Furthermore, the current wisdom has it that Roisman is a strong supporter of cryptocurrency (which is yet to be proved until Roisman officially votes). But the fact that he’s taking this consideration seriously, at least for now, is a reason to be optimistic.

If Roisman is indeed a supporter of the Bitcoin ETF, it means two out of five SEC commissioners will be ready to approve it, with Hester Pierce being the other SEC commissioner who has indicated her friendly position already.

Besides, SEC’s Kara Stein, who voted ‘NO’ to ETFs before, is expected to leave office in December and it’s rumored that democrat Allison Lee will replace Stein. Perhaps, this seems to be another potential opening for the approval of ETF.

Subsequently, VanEck has all investor protection issues taken care of with zero leverage as well as accredited investor protection. All these factors only indicate that a bitcoin ETF approval is imminent. Also, with the date set for the ICE’s Bakkt exchange on December 12this year, this will begin to clear bitcoin futures which were among the issues that led to the denial of the proposal initially.

With all indications pointing only to one direction – approval, it’s merely a matter of time before Bitcoin ETF gets approved or it’s even inevitable.

Champion Shave to Launch Champion Coin in an ICO in 2019 Q2

Champion Shave, a superstar-owned shaving company, has outlined its intentions to launch its own cryptocurrency token. The company was established in 2016 by 100m world record holder, Fusain Bolt, soccer legend, Ronaldinho, and NBA legend, Dominique Wilkins.

Since its inception, the company has sold over 10 million razor products. The products are available in 17 countries across the world. According to Manny Bains, the CEO of Champion Shave, the firm is revolutionizing the men’s grooming sector that is valued at $47 billion. They intend to further this transformation by adopting a blockchain-based solution for their supply chain and customer data management.

Manny states that Champion Shave will use blockchain technology to track the entirety of the supply chain. This would reduce expenses and enhance efficiency by offering a transparent, unalterable and decentralized ledger for tracking movement of freight. Moreover, Champion Shave will conduct an ICO where it will issue its cryptocurrency token, called Champion Coin.

The objective of the Champion Coin and Champion Shave blockchain ecosystem is to eliminate intermediaries and charges in cross-border transactions. In addition to increased efficiency, Champion coin users will get rewards and discounts for shaving products.

Champion Coin ICO

The presale phase of the Champion Coin ICO is expected to start on October 29. The event will be backed by a specially curated marketing campaign meant to appeal to sports fans as well as crypto hobbyists. The main token sale is expected to go live in Q2 2019.

David Trezeguet, a former football star, will represent tie Champion Coin ICO during the Malta Blockchain Summit scheduled for November 1. Trezeguet said that he was excited by the launch of the token, adding that it would be useful to all members of the Champion Shave fraternity.

Debating Satoshi Nakamoto’s Original Vision Between Blockchain Ledgers or Tokens

Published

on

According to Adam Krellenstein, co-founder and CTO at Symbiont.io, says that ten years after the anniversary of Bitcoin’s creation, the community is in a crisis. Symbiont.io is a fintech company that focuses on traditional financial markets and blockchain technology.

Mr Krellenstein says that he has been working during the last decade in order to produce new blockchain protocols that go beyond Satoshi’s original proposal. However, it seems that the industry is still struggling to answer important questions related to the nature of this technology and how it should improve society.

The author explains the struggle to understand the relationship between Bitcoin and distributed ledger technology (DLT). For him, there are some blockchains that want to create smart contracts, while others aim at creating tokens. Additionally, there is a debate on whether blockchain networks should be permissioned or not. Krellenstein believes that token systems are more useful than smart contracts when they are based on a public blockchain consensus protocol.

He mentions that Satoshi Nakamoto was right about the best use of blockchain technology. In this way, he created a payment system and a virtual currency (Bitcoin) that is nowadays the most popular and, perhaps, one of the most resilient in the market.

However, Krellenstein says that he spent a lot of time thinking about this issue and that he analyzed it very well when he created the cryptocurrency Counterparty and Symbiont. He goes on describing how Counter-party and Symbiont work and how they were created.

On the matter, he explained:

“Counterparty is a public blockchain smart contracts platform, albeit one focused on token issuance and trading, while Symbiont is a fintech company that develops and licenses its permissioned blockchain-based smart contracts system to improve the infrastructure of traditional financial markets.”

He said that while working on Counterparty and watching Ethereum – one of the largest virtual currencies and blockchain networks in the market – he saw that although both systems were built to support smart contracts, they were primarily used to create and transfer tokens.

Moreover, he explains that their vision was to create a trustless network of decentralized finance, and in order to do so, they implemented smart contracts for token balances, prediction markets, transparent elections and many other features. Nonetheless, those using Counterparty were focusing around its token rather than on other applications.

Krellenstein says that Ethereum makes it difficult to create real applications using the Solidity language. For him, one of the most advanced Ethereum smart contracts is related to CryptoKitties, something that is very similar to other games launched on Counterparty before. Although both platforms, Counterparty and Ethereum, were created to perform many other powerful things, they are exclusively used for tracing tokens.

This is why he thinks that smart contract systems for the general public are not a good idea. Additionally, he says that efficiency is sometimes more important than universality and that interaction among individuals is not yet as complex enough to justify a not efficient decentralized computer program.

Permissioned blockchains could work properly for some participants such as insitutions, governments or corporations. With these blockchains, it is possible to improve consistency and correctness of the current infrastructure.

This is something that some companies such as JP Morgan are already implementing and something that they properly understood.Quorum is the network that has been developed by the recognised bank and that is being used by different institutions and parties.

Krellenstein explains that blockchain can be valuable when replacing a consistent centralized system with a consistent decentralized one. He concludes saying that blockchain technology could become valuable as well when turning an inconsistent decentralized system into a consistent decentralized system.

“The conclusion that I’ve come to is that, just as was originally envisioned by Satoshi Nakamoto, the greatest use of a public blockchain is in fact as a digital currency and payment system,” he says. “Generalizations of Satoshi’s innovations in the time since he launched bitcoin, manifest partly in the enterprise DLT space, are not competitive with bitcoin.”

Perhaps, instead of replacing fiat currencies, blockchain technology could be used to build new databases that support workflows that are un-amenable to management within traditional client-server frameworks.
