Global blockchain-based mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) Miracle Tele aiming to disrupt the telecom industry has confidently scaled several milestones of its development timeline and has recently announced the closing date of its token sale earlier than scheduled with an exchange listing to follow shortly.
Miracle Tele began its crowdsale in 2018, and after several developmental achievements, and a huge community of supporters, the project crowns the end of its token sale on 15th May, 2019 with over $15.5 million raised from selling 50 million TELE tokens – well over its softcap target of selling 30 million TELE tokens. As the opportunity of a buy-in as an early supporter closes, Miracle Tele is offering a last chance to buy TELE tokens at a cheaper rate.
Arguably, the journey so far for Miracle Tele has been laced with technical, economic and social growth. Unlike many blockchain startups, Miracle Tele already has a working product with an incentive economic model that further aligns with their big plan to revolutionize the telecom industry. Achievements so far includes affordable call and data services and an accessible market in over 160 countries, where the TELE token offers real utility.
As part of their future developments, Miracle Tele plans to develop a blockchain system that integrates with legacy telecom and IoT systems – an opportunity to set themselves apart in the MVNO world as they stay connected in the smart ecosystem
As provided by the tokenomics details, the TELE token will list at EUR 0.5 per token once it hits the exchange, further fulling their pricing schedule, after which it is expected that market forces will determine the worth of the tokens as
The Miracle Tele team boasts of an incredible team of experts with experiences that span several niches to include politics, business, telecom and blockchain-related industries. And there’s room for more.
On the team is CEO Andrew Burciks, a political scientist who has devoted the most of his recent years to advocating blockchain use in business processes; Aleksandar Djordjevic an under 30 CTO & Entrepreneur draws from his crypto enthusiasm; IBM certified blockchain professional CCO Sagar Bansal leverages his experience as a team player in more than 5 ICOs already.
The Miracle Tele project continues to attract more talents to the platform, with the recent addition to the team being an experienced marketing consultant Zia Word to chair the marketing department as the CMO. As part of her previous achievements, she developed and sold a blockchain-based global travel and loyalty platform Chozun.
Perhaps the most exciting use case of their tokenomics is the incentive model being adopted, built on the principles of collaborative economy on blockchain to provide its clients with biweekly token holder rewards.
Miracle Tele has its own ‘stacking’ system, users ‘stack’ their TELE tokens within the TELE app or website. Miracle Tele pays out 40% of their proﬁts to TELE token holders every two weeks and early TELE holders have already been earning beneﬁts as a proof of concept.
Once the token hits the exchange as planned, holders of the TELE token will have the option to either trade against other currency pairs, or stack their tokens and continue to earn bi-weekly rewards which are paid out in the Euro equivalent either in fiat or any cryptocurrency of choice.

This Virginia Lawmaker Argues Blockchain Can Boost Local Elections, Economy
A Virginia lawmaker is pushing her commonwealth’s government to study how blockchain could shape the future of local elections and commerce.
On Jan. 8, Delegate Hala Ayala (D-51) offered two bills to the House of Delegates: the first calling for Virginia’s Department of Elections to investigate blockchain as a means to secure elections, and the second requesting the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) research blockchain’s current and coming role in the Old Dominion’s economy.
Together, they comprise Ayala’s political drive to embrace – or at least consider – integrating distributed ledger technology in Virginia life.
They’re also a product of Ayala’s subject matter expertise. She was an information security specialist with the U.S. Coast Guard for nearly 20 years before transitioning to a cybersecurity role at the Transportation Security Administration in 2017, where she continues to work.
“Right now blockchain is a thriving technology,” said Ayala, who was appointed chair of the newly formed Technology and Innovation Subcommittee last week.
The bills outline Ayala’s proposed roadmap to studying blockchain technologies. This is most clear in her election bill. It’s a response to the ongoing threat of election interference by “bad actors,” she said.
But it’s also a detailed prescription to get ahead of future attacks. With text imploring the Virginia Department of Elections to study current blockchain voting mechanisms, perform a
“We have to take blockchain very seriously and understand it has the mechanics and mechanisms that could potentially provide us with more secure election protection,” Ayala said.
The economy bill, too, would nudge blockchain toward more widespread implementation in Virginia, with two years of mandated studies on the tech’s prevalence and role in intrastate commerce.
If passed, VEDP would produce multiple reports outlining what the government should do to foster sector growth. Ayala said it would also tamp down on corporate overreach, keeping companies honest.
While Ayala hopes the reports will shed light on how the commonwealth can take advantage of this relatively new technology, she has not yet committed to implementing blockchain tools.
“We need to do our homework first to see how we can apply these technologies to their businesses as well as our elections,” she said.
Ultimately, her economics bill seeks to create “a statewide, comprehensive, and coordinated strategy relating to blockchain technology,” the text reads.
“Technology is always ever evolving, and we want to make sure that we are on the forefront and leading the way here in the commonwealth,” Ayala said.
This Startup Thinks Blockchain Is The Only Thing That Can Save Social Media
For any business on the Internet, using Amazon, Microsoft or another cloud computing giant is a fact of life. DFINITY founder Dominic Williams wants to change that. His blockchain nonprofit created an internet protocol called “The Internet Computer” that aims to decentralize the internet by putting cloud services (and all of their data) on independent systems.
Now, DFINITY is showing off its new blockchain technology at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland with a demonstration of an “open” social network called LinkedUp, a decentralized alternative to LinkedIn, that is not owned or operated by a corporate entity.
LinkedUp was built only as a demonstration for now, but the code is open source, meaning that any third-party developer that wishes can begin tinkering with the code and ultimately bring the idea to market if they so choose. Because the software is built on DFINITY’s Internet Computer platform, a public record of any changes will be available for anyone to review.
“We have no idea how Facebook creates its News Feed, and we have no idea how Facebook processes our data, and we have no way of knowing if it ships that data to Cambridge Analytica, and that is one key difference with an open Internet,” Williams said in a phone interview. “[On LinkedUp] you can see the updates to the software going through the governance system, so you know exactly what changes have been made and how the system works.”
In essence, social networks would no longer be a black box. All users would have a much deeper understanding of how the proprietary algorithms work and why they see certain pieces of content. They would have direct access to the code that governs these networks. And thus, Williams argues, people would be more empowered to fight against monopolistic trends in the existing internet infrastructure.
Investors are paying close attention to William’s idea. The Zug, Switzerland-based firm has raised $190 million from Andreessen Horowitz and crypto investors Polychain Capital and Multicoin Capital.
Williams hopes that his LinkedUp application will inspire others to create open versions of other popular software like WhatsApp, Facebook, eBay, and more. He wants to challenge the largest tech companies that control software, and thus the fate of any companies that choose to build on top of their platforms.
DFINITY released a software development kit two months ago to enable developers to build new web applications on its platform. The company plans to launch the Internet Computer later this year.
Roger Ver, Da Hongfei, Alex Mashinsky to speak at Istanbul Blockchain Week
Istanbul Blockchain Week has just announced the speaker line up for its Istanblock 2020 event. The conference, which will take place in April, will feature several prominent figures in the crypto industry, including Roger Ver, Da Hongfei, and Alex Mashinsky.
Turkey’s premier blockchain event announces high-profile speaker line up

Da Hongfei, the founder
Raising awareness of Turkish blockchain projects
Cryptocurrency exchanges will also be one of the topics discussed at the event, as Ben Zhou, the CEO and founder of Bybit has been announced as one of the speakers.
However, the event will also feature some big names that don’t come from crypto. According to the announcement, DP Suresh, the vice president of engineering at Yahoo, will be among the event’s speakers.
Erhan Korhaliller, Founder and CEO of crypto PR agency EAK Digital which organized the event, said that the goal of Istanbul Blockchain Week was to promote Turkish blockchain projects globally. He said in the announcement:
“Already, so many people in Turkey are familiar with crypto. What this event will do is catapult that enthusiasm and energy onto the world stage. It’s going to be exciting.”
The Istanbul Blockchain Week will take place from April 6-10, while its crowning event, Istanblock 2020, will be held on April 9-10.
