What Does Amazon Want With Three Cryptocurrency Domain Names?

TheMerkle Amazon Cryptocurrency Domain Names

There are always interesting developments in the world of cryptocurrency. Amazon has been doing some remarkable things in this area, even though its motives remain unclear for the time being. Most recently, the company has purchased three cryptocurrency-related domain names. It is unclear what it plans to do with them, as the company isn’t planning to accept cryptocurrency payments anytime soon.

Amazon Buys Cryptocurrency Domains

There are many potential reasons as to why Amazon would register three domain names which are related to cryptocurrency. According to CNBC, the company bought AmazonEthereum, AmazonCryptocurrency, and AmazonCryptocurrrencies last month. It’s a rather interesting development, especially considering the e-commerce giant affirmed it would not accept cryptocurrency payments now or in the future. Unless real demand were to kick in, that situation will not change whatsoever.

Even the most recent petition to enable Litecoin payments on Amazon has fallen on deaf ears. While there have been rumors that Amazon would soon enable Bitcoin payments, those claims are 100% fake for the time being. That doesn’t mean this situation can’t change over time, but there are currently no plans to make any changes in this regard. That’s an understandable decision, even though having Amazon on board would be quite spectacular for cryptocurrency as a whole. It would certainly alleviate some of the “speculative investment vehicle” concerns associated with Bitcoin.

For the time being, no one knows for sure what Amazon will use these three domains for. One possibility could involve the company providing a brokerage service for cryptocurrencies without enabling payments on its shopping platform. The choice to do so with Ethereum is quite peculiar, to say the very least, although it is hard to gauge its potential impact. Another option would be Amazon creating its own centralized digital currency going by the name of AmazonEthereum. Again, this is mere speculation more than anything else, but the possibility is certainly real.

Whether or not Amazon will ever use these domains for anything other than redirection purposes remains to be seen. It is a smart move to buy up these domains regardless, as other entities might be tempted to do the same. Considering that Amazon has been (wrongfully) associated with cryptocurrencies over the past few months, it would make for an interesting marketing stunt if someone else bought up these domains. Then again, Amazon also owns AmazonBitcoin.com which simply redirects to the main Amazon shopping page.

No one can deny these developments are very interesting to keep an eye on. While the future of Amazon and cryptocurrency remains shrouded in mystery for the time being, it is doubtful this is the last we will hear in this regard. Until Amazon decides to accept cryptocurrencies directly, using a cryptocurrency debit card remains a popular option for consumers. It is not the “pure” solution most people want to see, but it is certainly worth exploring.

Rest assured this new development will get a lot of mainstream media attention over the next few weeks. The decision to register these domain names comes at a time during which the Bitcoin price is smashing every previous record on a regular basis. It is impossible to predict where this market will head next, but the year 2017 has been rather spectacular for many different reasons. Amazon clearly has some sort of plan for its new domain names, but no one outside the company knows for sure when and how they will be used in the future.

Morgan Stanley Banker’s Brother Stole $300M Through Two Fraudulent ICOs

TheMerkle SEC ICO Fraud

Bankers have no love lost for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies these days. That’s been proven a few dozen times in recent years. However, family members of prominent bankers are entirely different creatures. Maksim Zaslavskiy, the brother of a Morgan Stanley banker, was arrested earlier this week. Apparently, Zaslavskiy had run an illegal cryptocurrency project and defrauded investors for over US$300,000 in the process.

Initial Coin Offerings Remain a big Risk

If there is one trend in the cryptocurrency world to be wary of, it is the initial coin offering hype. Dozens of new projects run ICOs every single month. It is difficult to cull the wheat from the chaff in this regard. Not all projects have honest intentions, and some are even outright scams. It appears Maksim Zaslavskiy has been running a few fraudulent initial coin offerings in recent months. His sole goal was seemingly to defraud investors and get rich in the process.

Those efforts were successful, as Zaslavskiy raised over US$300,000 from investors in the process. Not too long ago, we reported that the SEC had filed fraud charges against two particular initial coin offerings. One project was purportedly “backed” by real estate, whereas the other involved diamonds. It turned out both of those investment opportunities were operated by the same person – Maksim Zaslavskiy. Seeing this investigation yield additional fruit is a big relief, to say the very least.

It is evident initial coin offerings are a very risky market right now. While most people may be concerned about cryptocurrencies in general, these investment opportunities are a much bigger problem that should be regulated sooner rather than later. Governments want to send a clear signal that fraudulent activity cannot be left unpunished when it comes to ICOs. We already know that nearly nine in ten projects will fail despite honest intentions. It is evident there are also far less honest projects out there which are raising a lot of money.

No one will be surprised to learn that both investment schemes operated by Zaslavskiy were flawed. Neither of these investments actually existed, yet over US$300,000 was raised. It is unclear if this money will be returned to investors in the near future, although that remains the best possible outcome. For the time being, Zaslavskiy has been released on bond, though the investigation is far from over.

Misleading investors for criminal purposes is a very serious offense, especially in the United States. While there may not be any official ICO regulation to speak of right now, examples need to be made regardless. As of right now, Zaslavskiy faces up to five years of jail time, which is next to nothing for committing fraud on such a large scale. Then again, without any real regulation in place, it will be very difficult to press for a much longer jail sentence. Only time will tell if such a short sentence will be handed down or not.

This news comes at a very interesting time for cryptocurrency ICOs. More specifically, the SEC recently issued a stern warning not to trust any initial coin offering endorsed by celebrities. It is certainly true anyone promoting such securities will be scrutinized by the SEC in the near future. Given the vast number of people partaking in these sponsored promotions these days, it is evident something will have to change sooner or later. ICOs are a very risky business for both investors and endorsers; that much is rather evident.

Monero Wikipedia Page Is Vandalized by Unknown Entity

TheMerkle Monero Wikipedia Vandalism

Wikipedia is a great platform for finding all kinds of information. The world’s top cryptocurrencies all have their own Wikipedia pages these days. Community members tend to keep all information relevant and make modifications when needed. However, it seems some strange things are happening to the Monero Wikipedia page as we speak. A lot of valuable information has been removed, for reasons unknown.

Monero Wikipedia Revisions get out of Hand

It is pretty interesting to see how a lot of the Wikipedia page’s information has been modified over the past few weeks. While it is good to see many different people contributing to and maintaining this page, there have been a lot of disturbing additions and subtractions over the past few weeks as well. Things got so out of hand that one of the contributors had to revert to an earlier version of the page due to “vandalism and blanking”. It almost seems as if some people want others to forget Monero even exists.

Looking over the recent history of modifications, some interesting developments are evident. On multiple occasions, spam or unnecessary content was added and removed shortly afterward. This seems to indicate there is someone intent on discrediting Monero through its Wikipedia page, although no one knows who it is. Nor does anyone know why this individual is going to such lengths to prove a point which may or may not be valid in the first place.

Although not all the legitimate information has been restored on Wikipedia just yet, it is good to see the community keep tabs on things. Cryptocurrency is a very competitive space these days, and there are a lot of conflicting opinions regarding currencies right now. Moreover, various camps of altcoin supporters are constantly bickering over technical specifications, whitepapers, and so forth. It is evident that Monero is a big target when it comes to privacy and anonymity, which seemingly irates certain individuals.

Censorship and blanking are nothing new in the world of cryptocurrency either. We have seen similar issues with Bitcoin, although its Wikipedia page has remained largely intact for the most part. Then again, there have been a few attempts to discredit Bitcoin and censor conversations on other platforms, mainly Reddit. This bad blood between cryptocurrency enthusiasts is something that needs to be addressed, although no one knows for sure how it should be handled to begin with.

The bigger question is why people would want to purposefully spread misinformation. One of the latest revisions on the Monero Wikipedia page pertained to the project’s coin supply, which was quickly undone by one of the main contributors. A Reddit post isn’t a reliable source for information found on Wikipedia, to say the least. Some false claims by cited sources were removed as well. There is a lot of interest in Monero these days, and a lot of people will rely on Wikipedia to find whatever it is they need.

In the end, most of the damage has been seemingly undone already. There have been multiple attempts to effectively destroy the Monero page, but the beauty of Wikipedia is that there is always an earlier version to revert back to. It will be interesting to see if anyone can ever find the person or group responsible for this malicious activity. There are still a lot of questions that need to be answered in this regard, to say the very least. It’s a troublesome situation, and we can only hope issues like these become less common in the future.

Markets Update: Cryptocurrency Market Cap Commands $200 Billion
Markets Update: Cryptocurrency Market Cap Commands $200 Billion

The price of bitcoin (BTC) has been soaring once again after reaching an all-time high of $7350 on November 2. Now after a quick drop below $6800, yesterday the price per BTC reached yet another peak at $7500. Additionally, the market value of bitcoin cash (BCH) has also seen an intense run-up over the past two weeks as the currency topped $700 on November 3.

Bitcoin Markets Soar to $7500

Markets Update: Cryptocurrency Market Cap Commands $200 Billion
Bitstamp BTC/USD order books show heavy resistance in the $7,500-8,000 range.

The first week of November is seeing a lot of action in regard to cryptocurrency markets worldwide. The top cryptocurrencies combined now command a whopping $200B market capitalization, with bitcoin’s $121B market cap dominating by 60 percent. After bitcoin reached a peak at $7,500 per BTC, the decentralized currency dipped a touch and is now hovering just above $7,250. Bitcoin’s value has increased immensely over the past four weeks as the network prepares for the pending Segwit2x fork expected on or around November 16.

Speculators believe a lot of money is flowing into bitcoin so that traders can get in on the 1:1 split scenario that could take place during the fork. In addition to that, people think it’s possible that bitcoin is gaining a lot more mainstream acceptance. For instance, mainstream media covers the currency’s performance daily, and CME Group’s recent announcement concerning the launch of bitcoin-based futures may have had an impact. Whether it’s the fork or the talk of a mainstream tipping point, bitcoin proponents see a lot of demand for the cryptocurrency’s benefits and can’t ignore the 500 percent gains.

Markets Update: Cryptocurrency Market Cap Commands $200 Billion
BTC/USD markets hit an all-time high of $7,500 on November 3.

The Value of Bitcoin Cash Has Risen Relentlessly

Another market that is doing phenomenally well is bitcoin cash, which is seeing an 18.7 percent increase over the past 24-hours. BCH markets currently command the third highest market cap, and the second largest trade volume over the past few days. BCH markets are swapping over $1.7B in trade volume and holds a market cap of $11B at the time of writing. Global exchanges leading in bitcoin cash trade volume include Bithumb, Korbit, Bitfinex, Coinone, and Hitbtc. The South Korean won is dominating the BCH trade volume by currency with BTC trailing behind the state issued tender. Presently bitcoin cash is trading at $650 per BCH at press time.

Markets Update: Cryptocurrency Market Cap Commands $200 Billion
BCH/USD markets touch $700 per bitcoin cash. Currently, BCH is hovering around $650 per token.

BCH speculators believe demand is stemming from the optimistic belief that the Difficulty Adjustment Algorithm (DAA) will be fixed on November 13. The BCH network’s DAA has caused an issue for the protocol’s participants with erratic block times and mining pools jumping between two chains. Another speculative theory, which some BCH supporters believe, is that the upcoming Segwit2x fork may cause problems for those specific networks. Some individuals think BCH will be a ‘safeguard’ from this event and there is talk about the fork causing a ‘flippening’ from BCH’s perspective. The BCH chain is 7537 blocks ahead of the BTC’s blockchain and is operating at only 8 percent of BTC’s difficulty algorithm. This has made the BCH chain more profitable to mine by 3.2 percent for the time being.

Markets Update: Cryptocurrency Market Cap Commands $200 Billion
BCH/USD technical indicators show the bull run isn’t over yet.

Cryptocurrency Markets In General Inch Towards $200 Billion

Overall the top 20 largest cryptocurrencies by capitalization are all in the green today except for three token markets. Ethereum (ETH) markets are up 3.5 percent, and is averaging $299 per ETH. Ripple (XRP) is up over 5 percent at the time of writing as each XRP is $0.20. The fifth highest market cap position is held by litecoin (LTC), as one token is hovering around $55 per LTC. Two notable run-ups in the top ten come from NEO and IOTA markets, as both cryptocurrencies have spiked 6-8 percent on November 3.

Markets Update: Cryptocurrency Market Cap Commands $200 Billion
The top five highest cryptocurrency market capitalizations according to Coinmarketcap.com.

It’ll be an interesting time leading up to the Segwit2x fork as well as after the event takes place. Additionally, watching what will happen after the bitcoin cash DAA fork, and watching all the cryptocurrency markets in general post-Segwit2x will likely be a spectacle. However, the latest crypto price spikes seem to be making people more comfortable with the pending uncertainty ahead.

Where do you see the cryptocurrency prices heading from here? Do you think markets will continue to rise? Let us know in the comments below.

BitcoinPlug Will Enable Bitcoin Cash on all of Their Los Angeles ATMs Soon

No Comments

Click here to view original web page at www.newsbtc.com

Cryptocurrency ATMs have become increasingly popular as of late. Although not every country has such a device, things are evolving in the right direction. Several operators even support a few altcoins these days. BitcoinPlug has made an interesting announcement in this regard. The company will enable Bitcoin Cash on all of their Bitcoin ATMs throughout Los Angeles.

Making Bitcoin Cash more accessible to consumers is a big challenge. More specifically, there are plenty of exchanges who support BCH. However, the number of fiat markets is still pretty small, for some reason. LocalBitcoinCash is one platform attempting to alleviate this situation in the future. It now seems BitcoinPlug has also come up with a plan to make this process a lot easier. Although only available to residents of Los Angeles, it is an interesting precedent regardless.

BitcoinPlug Makes a Bold Decision

More specifically, the company wants to introduce a new altcoin through their Bitcoin ATM network. Bitcoin Cash will be supported in the very near future. No official date has been communicated at the time of writing. We do know all of their Los Angeles ATMs will receive this upgrade around the same time. This is big news for the company, to say the very least. They operate a total of 21 Bitcoin ATMs throughout California right now. Quite a few of these are located in Los Angeles itself.

We are excited to soon offer #Bitcoin Cash at all of our #LosAngeles BATM locations. Thank you @generalbytes! pic.twitter.com/qCNGb5JptC

— BitcoinPlug (@bitcoinplugatm) November 1, 2017

It is important to note these are not two-way ATMs. Customers will be able to buy Bitcoin Cash but not sell it. It is possible that functionality will come later on, but for now, there is no official confirmation. Bitcoin Cash will be the third currency provided on these ATMs. Earlier, BitcoinPlug already enabled Litecoin support as well. An interesting choice, to say the very least. It also shows how popular BCH really is these days.

It will be interesting to see whether or not other operators will follow this example. More specifically, there is a big market waiting to be tapped in this regard. Altcoin demand is reaching new heights every single month. It is evident these ATMs are gateways for conveniently purchasing cryptocurrencies. Adding altcoin support makes a lot of sense. Bitcoin Cash is an interesting choice for BitcoinPlug. For now, no one knows if there will be enough demand to justify the decision.

No Comments

Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain startup iExec has announced the SDK release of its Decentralized cloud network at Devcon3 in Cancun, Mexico.

November 3, 2017, Lyon, France – Decentralized cloud network iExec has announced the release of its first Software Development Kit (SDK) product during Devcon3 in Cancún, Mexico. The service will enable blockchain applications to access an affordable, scalable, transparent and secure off-chain computing cloud. Several other announcements were made during the conference keynote of CEO Gilles Fedak’s, including the first App Store for decentralized applications, some recently-made partnerships, and a new research program.

iExec has been focused on building the first blockchain-based decentralized Cloud Computing platform for some time and this weeks announcement of its first SDK product at Devcon3 Conference follows months of stellar work by the iExec development team. The announcement is seen by the company as its first major goal on its roadmap to eventually create a future decentralized economy by providing a unique platform for unlimited computing power to blockchain applications,

iExec is also creating the first decentralized marketplace for cloud resources (servers, storage, applications and data sets). In April 2017, the company published its official white paper, detailing its plan to bring its vision to market. The team remains perfectly on track and has been delivering on schedule and up to promise.iExec is often known as the Airbnb for servers as its platform automatizes peer-to-peer interactions among users and providers in a safe, secure, transparent, and trustworthy blockchain experience.

On November 3rd, Gilles Fedak, PhD, CEO and co-founder of iExec, made several major announcements during his keynote speech at the (Devcon3) Ethereum Developer Conference:

  • Thanks to this first release, the developers are now able to overcome the limitations of the blockchain in terms of storage and computing capacities. By relying on the iExec SDK (Software Development Kit), developers can deploy and execute complex applications from the blockchain. This innovation, called “off-chain execution”, allows them to broaden the application usage of Ethereum and address an important scalability issue which is the high processing cost of “on-chain execution”.
  • In addition, developers are now able to earn RLC tokens by renting their applications on the blockchain. iExec has announced that developers will also be able to promote their business on the first App Store for decentralized applications. The targeted sectors are applications focused on AI, Big Data, IoT, fintech, and green IT. All the major digital trends could be powered by the platform.
  • Being very product-oriented, iExec has already started working with companies in order to see concrete deployments of its platform. The first proof-of-concept will be in finance. iExec wishes to stay at a cutting-edge level: PhDs are working on the state-of-the-art design of a proof-of-contribution protocol (PoCo) and on secure and trusted execution of off-chain computations.

During his address Gilles went on to outline the company’s recent progress, stating,

“This first version of iExec shows that we are able to overcome several limitations from the blockchain technology. We are proud to release this product only six months after the start of the project. It opens new perspectives for decentralized businesses and new opportunities for developers and startups,”

About Blockchain and Ethereum

Blockchain is the technology powering Bitcoin. It is the best way to assure traceability and transparency during digital transactions without the need of a third party. A blockchain is a chain of blocks recording and time-stamping each transaction. Ethereum is the second generation of blockchains, which can be programmed thanks to smart-contracts.

About iExec

The massive transformational goal of iExec is to provide the computing solution to each digital entrepreneur developing remarkable ideas on the blockchain. Indeed, iExec aims to create the platform providing unlimited computing power to blockchain applications that want to create the future of the decentralized economy.

The technology behind iExec leverages more than 15 years of work from its founders. Haiwu He and Gilles Fedak, who have published more than 80 scientific papers in the pioneering field of Desktop Grid and cloud computing. iExec released RLC tokens in April 2017, during an Initial Coin Offering (ICO), raising the equivalent of 12 M$ in less than 3 hours.

Every Ethereum Holder To Receive VIU Token Airdrop for Blockchain Video Platform

No Comments

Bitcoin Press Release: Viuly is pleased to announce the distribution of VIU tokens to current Ethereum holders with its airdrop campaign on November 10th with the ETH snapshot taking place on November 5th, 2017. Those who hold at least 0.1 ETH will receive VIU tokens, used to transfer value within Viuly’s blockchain-based video sharing platform, as Viuly seeks to expand its user base and encourage adoption of the decentralized online video platform at https://viuly.io.

November 3rd, 2017 Tallin, Estonia – Decentralized video solutions startup Viuly will now expand its airdrop campaign to include the Ethereum community in the distribution of its platform’s native currency, VIU tokens. Every Ethereum holder of at least 0.1 ETH can expect to receive a share of VIU tokens at the rate of 5 VIU for every 1 ETH that they hold in their Ethereum wallets, with the ETH blockchain snapshot taking place on November 5th, 2017 and the aidrop taking place on November 10th, 2017.

500 000 000 VIU tokens will be distributed to to 1 000 000 ethereum holders.

To participate in the airdrop, users must be an active ethereum holder with a positive balance of minimum 0.10 ETH and maximum 1000 ETH in their personal wallet. No wallets from exchanges will be allowed to receive VIU tokens.

Important: To be able to claim these tokens users must have the ETH in a wallet that supports ERC20 tokens such as myetherwallet, or Mist on November 5th, 2017.

For more information on Viuly’s objectives and development roadmap, visit the Viuly website and read the official Viuly whitepaper here. The Alpha platform is available at: https://viuly.io

Distribution to ETH holders for wider distribution, accelerated adoption

This latest move reflects Viuly’s strategy for early adoption, based on a strategy of wide distribution. It hopes to leverage the potential of Ethereum’s widespread community and support, recognizing their potential to massively grow Viuly membership. It is envisioned that Ethereum holders who receive these free VIU tokens will be encouraged to use Viuly’s blockchain-based video sharing platform to create, upload and watch videos online – while earning further rewards from activity.

As VIU tokens are an ERC20-based token, Viuly advises that Ethereum holders intending to participate in the airdrop ensure that their ETH balances are held in wallets that they control, and able to receive ETH-based tokens. Wallets such as MyEtherWallet, Mist, Trezor and Nano will be able to receive tokens. Holders will not be able to claim VIU tokens from ETH balances held in online services such as other web wallets and cryptocurrency exchanges.

500 000 000 VIU tokens will be distributed to all ETH wallets with a balance of 0.1 ETH or more. Ethereum users will receive VIU tokens at the rate of 5 VIU tokens per 1 ETH of balance.

Viuly’s airdrop campaign will commence on November 10th. Following this, VIU tokens will begin listing on several exchanges in December 2017.

Try Viuly and see the future of how people will share and watch videos online

The current industry of online video sharing is a highly centralized one, controlled by major centralized platforms that act as middlemen between advertisers, content creators and users. Through decentralization, Viuly’s platform eliminates high commissions from ad revenues and places control of content within the network itself.

As a result, creators earn more from higher ad revenue, advertisers get better value from efficient marketing and users are rewarded with a share of revenues. Without centralized censorship to restrict content and limit viewing, authors gain creative freedom and users have free access.

Through blockchain innovation, the platform is based on the IPFS protocol, featuring a fully-decentralized distributed network of data storage that compensates individuals for storage. There is no more shared control centers, no more single point of failure.

About Viuly

Viuly’s mission is to disrupt the multi-billion dollar industry of online video sharing with its blockchain-based solution. Through decentralization and transparency, it aims to create a fair and open video network operating on an equitable model of revenue sharing.

VIU tokens are the native currency powering the Viuly video platform. They are used to transfer value between advertisers, content creators and users.

Viuly will be a full-fledged platform for users and content creators to share and watch videos, while immediately earning rewards for their interactions. This revolutionary ecosystem will enable a fair, unrestricted environment to share, watch, and upload any content.

Viuly’s revolutionary blockchain solution has already led to a firm backing of EUR 150,000 from Ukraine-based blockchain investor Krypton Capital. Together with Krypton Capital’s “smart money” philosophy, Viuly aims to establish strong ecosystems of related companies to grow values and revenues together.

Cryptocurrencies Should Not Be Taken For Granted, Central Bank of Swaziland Governor

No Comments

Central Bank of Swaziland (CBS) Governor Majozi Sithole has issued an optimistic statement about digital currencies. He further claimed that the central bank is advancing research on the technology.

In his speech at an economic forum in late October 2017, Sithole claimed that it could be a prudent decision to dismiss the cryptocurrencies as they may be very important innovations.

“It may not be wise to dismiss virtual currencies and as the CBS we are learning, and we want to accept and support innovation. If this is innovation, we do not want to stifle it. We want to learn more about it.”

The CBS’ positive position on the digital currencies

From the very start, the CBS has adopted a positive view on the digital currencies and has shown its interest in the new form of money publicly.

In August 2017, the central bank’s senior communications officer Sithole Shabangu presented a brief overview of the virtual currencies and highlighted the study being conducted by the central bank on the cryptocurrencies in an internal news circular that was issued.

“In essence, the Central Bank, in line with its mandate to issue and redeem currency as well as to promote safe and accessible payment systems, continues to closely monitor developments in the financial services industry with a view to ensure that the regulatory framework remains relevant and appropriate.”

She further reiterated that the development and use of the cryptocurrencies should be done in a way that appropriately protects the interests of the public.

“The Bank acknowledges its role in supporting innovation and adoption of new technologies in the industry.

Brickblock among the few Blockchain startup that aims to revolutionize cryptocurrency investing by creating a platform where holders of different digital currencies can easily invest and trade in real-world assets like ETFs, coin funds and even real estate on the Blockchain. The platform has gone a step further to announce the launch of its ICO token sale that commenced on the 31st October 2017.

In a bid to ensure everyone and anyone can transact using any of the several digital currencies, Brickblock has created the first of its kind platform. Consequently, this allows for easier, cheaper, more secure trading and investing, as the intermediary usually involved in such transactions is cut off. The use of smart contracts automatically confirms funds transfer from investors to fund manager. Meanwhile, the consequent transfer of assets from fund managers to investors also helps to ensure a more effective and secure transaction.

After raising USD 1 million during a five-day token pre-sale, Brickblock has already attained a significant milestone by releasing the alpha version of the platform on the Ethereum Blockchain. This will boost investors’ confidence in Brickblock’s ability to deliver a product before seeking further funding. The alpha release also outlines future roadmap and the glimpse of the project’s potential.

Recently Brickblock announced the partnership with nakamo.to (A Berlin-based startup) to explore the potential of IOTA’s Tangle Network. Working with nakamo.to could help Brickblock to break the chains of standard Blockchain technology and making its platform the first real use-case on the revolutionary Tangle Network. It seems, there are many ways for Blockchain technology to disrupt an industry, and real estate seems to be a fast-growing.

Brickblock believes in talent acquisition to come with an extraordinary platform that meets investors’ expectations. Recently, The Founders added a wealth of talent to its core team, including six full-time developers and hired key advisors to help realize the company’s vision of making investing cheaper, easier, and more secure.

After the ICO, company aims to sell a tokenized apartment building over the Blockchain. The property will be managed by a fund manager with over 30 years of experience in real estate, with dividends paid out to investors’ Ethereum wallets.
