Propy Announces World’s First Real Estate Purchase on Ethereum Blockchain

Bitcoin Press Release: TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington’s purchase of an apartment in Ukraine marks a milestone that opens the floodgates for real asset transfers on the blockchain.

September 30, 2017, San Francisco, California – Propy, the global property store and decentralized title registry, today announced the world’s first real estate transaction on the distributed public blockchain network — Ethereum. TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington remotely purchased a $60,000 apartment in Kiev, settled via smart contracts and in Ethereum cryptocurrency and PRO (Propy) tokens—marking the first-ever cryptocurrency transaction in Ukraine and the first real asset transfer via blockchain. The latest transaction opens the door for many more remote real estate transactions on the blockchain.

Natalia Karayaneva, CEO of Propy said,

“I’m thrilled to see Propy leading the charge in putting real estate on the blockchain—bringing transparency, efficiency, and security to an industry traditionally fraught with red tape and bureaucracy. Ukrainian real estate is very affordable, and the Ukrainian market will soon be growing dynamically. This purchase is an important signal to foreign investors—especially Chinese, who face strict capital controls of $50,000 per person—that they can safely and easily invest in this market and, soon, other countries.”

Arrington’s real estate purchase from Ukrainian developer Mark Ginsburg is the latest in a string of successes for Propy. In September the company raised $15 million in a pre-sale and crowdsale of PRO tokens—making it one of the ten highest-earning ICOs this summer. It also entered into an official partnership with the government of Ukraine, which has agreed to pilot the blockchain title registry. The partnership—Propy’s first with a foreign government coincides with new legislation allowing foreign investors to purchase land in Ukraine as of January 1, 2018.

By utilizing Ethereum blockchain—a technology that is quickly gaining on the Bitcoin blockchain as the blockchain of choice for developers, Propy has taken an important first step in automating real estate purchases on the burgeoning global real estate market.

Karayaneva continued,

“This is only the beginning. With this transaction, we’ve broken first ground in putting the $217 trillion real estate market on the blockchain. We’re starting with Ukraine, but over the coming year we plan to facilitate real estate transactions with the use of PRO tokens in California, Vermont, and Dubai.”

About Propy

Propy is the world’s first international real estate marketplace, aimed at solving the problems of purchasing property across borders. Propy facilitates connections between international entities to enable the seamless purchase of international real estate online. The Silicon Valley-based company is advised by Michael Arrington (founder of TechCrunch), Vinny Lingham (CEO of Civic), David Cowan (Partner at Bessemer Venture Partners), Alain Pinel (Intero Real Estate), Daniel Kottke (formerly of Apple), Mike Costache (Managing Partner at KrowdMentor & d10e), and Jeremy Gardner (EIR at Blockchain Capital).

BitDegree Challenges Coursera and HackerRank’s Phenomenon by Gearing up With Blockchain

Bitcoin Press Release: BitDegree, an Ethereum-based application, has the potential to completely change the way people pursue higher education.  

September 29, 2017, Vilnius, Lithuania – BitDegree is the world’s first Ethereum blockchain and smart-incentives-based online platform for decentralized education and tech talent acquirement.

Designed to address the higher education needs of the present-day labor market, BitDegree is a must-have tool for businesses to recruit tech talent and shape global education to their needs through smart-incentives-powered token scholarships. Ideally summed up, BitDegree is Coursera and HackerRank merged together, based on Ethereum blockchain.

The tech education company has announced its upcoming ICO plans, which are scheduled on 2017 Q4.

BitDegree takes learning to a new, interactive model that is particularly enticing to today’s workers. By using an Octalysis framework of gamification design, going through the process of educating oneself is as simple and exciting as playing a fun video game.

The inclusion of smart incentives and interactive learning will allow BitDegree to solve the problem of the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) industry’s low 5 percent completion rate. Traditional education is broken and outdated, yet the Bitdegree platform reaches beyond borders and any traditional limitations to create an experience unlike any other.

The idea of BitDegree is the brainchild of Andrius Putna, a highly qualified software engineer with over a decade of industry experience. Prior to BitDegree, he has led several successful projects including 000webhost.com, the world’s first cloud-based web hosting platform for learners and starters.

The CEO and co-founder of BitDegree Foundation, Andrius Putna,  states that:

“BitDegree is proud of education now being shaped according to the needs of businesses and it will no longer take 4-6 years to complete a qualification for the real labor market. It is getting a lot of traction and there is no doubt that it will become a global hit.”

Putna continues:

“Tech-talent is among us, among our users, and it’s time to empower them to go after their dreams, empower them to learn. After many successful practices, we know that it will go globally.”

Normally, students spend tens of thousands of dollars on a degree. Coming out of university with such amounts of debt and no guarantee to find work, is devastating.

In fact, many institutions of higher learning, simply aren’t addressing the needs of employers, and students graduate lacking the essential skills needed to do the job efficiently.

The online learning model conceptualized in this platform, will grant access to the best online courses, curated by guest lecturers from the world changing companies, with a clear and transparent blockchain-based reward system and the benefit of achievement tracking in their own name.

BitDegree will create a new type of token in the Ethereum ecosystem. It will be exchangeable among different category users of the platform, such as the students, companies as sponsors, and various third parties.

BitDegree envisions a world where tech companies can provide scholarship incentives to students who want to invest time and effort into learning new skills.

Through this process, companies can introduce learners to new technology and fill learning gaps within their own workforces. BitDegree will stand out from present MOOCs due to blockchain advantages with smart incentives, gamification and decentralization.

Having a strong base of more than 29 million users, BitDegree has a precisely calculated roadmap advancing in 2018 Q4, when the platform aims to reach its full functionality.

The BitDegree team is currently working on the MVP and getting ready for upcoming ICO event that is scheduled to take place on 2017 Q4. Innovative learning model, passion-driven team and the successful ICO event will accelerate the potential of BitDegree’s platform and revolutionize education from the core.

LevelNet Disrupts the Cybersecurity Industry With the New Product

Bitcoin Press Release: Excellent performance of LevelNet at TechCrunch Disrupt 2017

September 29, 2017, Irvine, CA —  LevelNet is touting itself as the First Distributed Cyber Security Platform. Recently returning from TechCrunch Disrupt 2017, the California-based startup handled inquiries from curios visitors all day at their stand.

Not only  interest was expressed from players in the industry, but users from all over the globe were keen on finding out more about LevelNet.

CEO Pavel Shkliaev commented on the results of the exhibition:

“I am very pleased with the results of TechCrunch Disrupt 2017. The Levelnet team was on top. Proudly  I can say that our stand was busy  with the  visitors all day long, this fact confirms the huge interest to LevelNet, both industry leaders, investors, as well as  ordinary users from China, India, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Europe and the USA. We received feedback from private investors, foundations, leaders of the technology industry and anti-virus protection. Also , we received approval for investments from several international VC and angel investors at the exhibition. Today we are preparing investment contracts for them on special terms.”

LevelNet looks to disrupt the $25 billion antivirus industry that continues to grow at an average rate of 9 percent annually by solving the problems that plague the industry: expensive, fragmentation, being out of date, as well as being short sighted, at a fraction of the cost through traditional means.

It’s going to solve these problems through combining the efforts of pre-existing anti-virus software to form a p2p security network. Real-time protection is a struggle with traditional anti-virus software, but LevelNet will ensure clients are secured from threats known and unknown.

Participants eager to participate in LevelNet’s crowdsale will be happy to know the pre-sale ICO, and subsequently, the ICO, is coming up soon.

The start of the Pre-Sale ICO is scheduled for November 01, 2017. In this round, the LVL utility Token will be available to users with a discount up to 40 percent.

Token Sale

LVL Token price is locked to $1 dollar per one Token. Maximum quantity of 70,000,000 tokens will be issued and all the unsold tokens will be destroyed after Token Crowdsale. Purchase will be possible on https://levelnet.co

The token sale will start on November 15, 2017. The pre-sale will be started on November 01 2017 with up to 40 percent bonus on purchase during this period.

About LevelNet Technology:

LevelNet integrates virtually all existing anti-virus technologies into one simple, user-friendly application. This distributed system enables participants to share threat data globally and in real time, allowing for the entire system to become much smarter and faster, than any single cybersecurity provider can do today. LevelNet significantly boosts the capabilities of any user installed anti-virus programs. If a user does not have any security applications installed, LevelNet can take advantage of its distributed network platform and act as a self-standing application. Today’s cybersecurity solutions are limited. As one of the main providers finds a threat, it will often take significant time for that knowledge to be distributed to the total system. New malware takes advantage of this window of time to infect the greatest number of devices. LevelNet creates an integrated, global, and immediately responsive system to stop more malware earlier than it was  possible before.

About Company: LevelNet Inc. is a cyber security company based in Irvine, CA. Founded in 2016. LevelNet provides new opportunities for effective cyber-protection as well as new business ideas.

ALDOIN, a Green Crypto-Mining Project Offering Attractive Dividends Launches Crowdsale

Bitcoin Press Release: ALDOIN, an innovative Green-mining solution in partnership with Eqvola and Adviora announces crowdsale.

September 21, 2017, London, UK – ALDOIN is the result of a joint venture between London based IT company Eqvola LLP and Glasgow based ad agency, Adviora. The partners in this initiative have unveiled the crowdsale for the green Crypto-mining project.

ALDOIN is a highly-optimized cryptocurrency, Crypto-mining farm and trading service with low cost and smart allocation systems powered by an innovative equity token, ALDO. The token entitles holders to monthly dividends of up to 4% of the project’s profits from its mining operations. The ongoing crowdsale, in its first phase, allows participants to purchase the ALDO tokens and become part of the initiative.

The increasing requirement for hashing power, rising network difficulties and the use of massive amounts of energy by mining hardware has exploded into the public consciousness. Many believe that Crypto-mining solutions amid the rise and adoption of cryptocurrencies by various government entities and financial institutions are doing more damage to the planet than good. Making matters worse is the current situation with some of the existing Cloud-mining solutions which are fraught with inconsistences, low payouts, and scam allegations.

Some people will argue that it is more profitable to mine on their own. However, critical issues such as high electrical power consumption, air conditioning costs, hardware repairs and maintenance, noise and interferences have proven to be very effective deterrents. ALDOIN combines the technical know-how of Eqvola to develop customized turnkey solutions for the financial market and the marketing prowess of Adviora to develop a stable and self-sustaining cloud mining ecosystem with both vertical and horizon expansion across all boards.

The ALDOIN ecosystem makes use of hundreds of mining farms to provide a high level of uptime for each farm. It will be achieved by using custom setups to maximize automation, reduce human resources and mining interruptions and maintain production at minimal expense to clients.

Over the past couple of years, ALDOIN has acquired extensive technical skills and knowledge in successfully running crypto mining projects based on different equipment and setups. They have tested and analyzed scores of mining algorithms and cryptocurrencies for optimal output and profit.

The ALDO Crowdsale

ALDOIN has split its crowdsale campaign into 10 phases, and the first phase went live on August 28, 2017, and will continue until October 31, 2017. As a part of its crowdsale, the platform will offer 50 million ALDO Equity Tokens, of which 5 million will be available on sale during the first phase.

On completion of the first phase, ALDOIN will start building an Aldostation, a Crypto-mining center scheduled to be completed in two months and launched within the third month. Those investing in the first phase of the crowdsale will be credited dividends based on the number of tokens they hold. The dividends distribution will be according to the following criteria;

  • up to 500 ALDO 1%;
  • 501–1000 ALDO from 1,1% up to 1.5%;
  • 1001–2500 ALDO from 1,2% up to 2%;
  • 2501–5000 ALDO from 1,3% up to 3%;
  • from 5001 ALDO from 1,5% up to 4%.

The ALDO tokens will be listed on exchange platforms after the fifth or the tenth phase depending on the market conditions. Once listed, token holders will be able to trade ALDO against other cryptocurrencies profitably.

Soon, ALDOIN will launch various high remunerated products and services including hash power reselling, smart contract creation, trading products, and blockchain legal products. The platform is also open towards investing in other blockchain related projects and startups as well.  The future development roadmap and other project specifications are explained in detail in ALDOIN’s whitepaper.

Cryptocurrency Supported Electronic ESR Wallet Announces Crowdsale

Bitcoin Press Release: ESR Wallet, a popular e-Wallet platform has announced the launch of its crowdsale campaign, starting September 25, 2017.

September 16, 2017, San Francisco, USA – ESR Wallet, an e-Wallet company, already operating with fiat currencies announces its token pre-sale, starting September 25! The project aims to create universal payment and credit service with the support of popular cryptocurrencies.

Storing money on a platform has been possible for a while with applications such as PayPal or Venmo, but there are still a lot of limitations when wanting to use it; fees when sending abroad or in another currency, delays when transferring to another account, no easy cash-back options and more. The problem is even more evident when it comes to cryptocurrency support.

Even though several e-Money startups are operating with both fiat and cryptocurrencies, none of them offer a full range of banking services. Moreover, almost all of these projects haven’t been realized yet, and everything they aim to accomplish isn’t likely to happen soon.

We can notice that unlike others the ESR Wallet payment provider is already the licensed issuer of electronic money, regulated by the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission.

ESR Wallet

ESR WALLET is building an e-wallet that enables to store, spend, transfer and invest crypto and other currencies. The startup answers the primary needs of its future users:

Staring with the mission to enable users to spend cryptocurrencies wherever cards are accepted – both online and in-store, the platform will make physical cards, just like VISA or MasterCard available to the users. Soon after, users will be able to exchange their cryptocurrencies to 8 major currencies, while enjoying the ability to use the ESR prepaid card in over 120 countries. Other steps include the instant exchange of money between wallet users, through the app. The platform will offer all these at the best possible fees.

ESR Wallet takes it even further. Wallet users will also have the possibility to be issued credits in any cryptocurrencies, get cash back and open an investment portfolio managed by an experienced trader. The last step — trust management fund, will be fully in place by August 2018.

ESR Wallet is an operating system founded by SERGEY SLASTIKHIN, former co-owner of Paytoo – an e-Money company that has been working in the US since 2005. He joins forces with talents such as Oleg Gerasimov, Arkady Khokhlov, and Vitalii Kirillov –founders of the IT company Fast and Shine featured on Forbes’ Top TOP-25 of the best franchises. The company implements IT solutions in the service sector.

Token Sale

ESR token is released on the basis of an e-Token contract. The platform has set the maximum number of tokens at 10,000,000 and all the unsold tokens after the crowdsale. Participants in the token presale can do so through the Orderbook widget on http://esrwallet.io/

Each ESR Token equals 10 dollars, and the minimum investment is set at 1 ESR Token. Every investor who has bought more than 10 ESR token during Pre-ICO and ICO period will receive a free of charge personalized multi-currency prepaid card. The ESR tokens are available at a 50% discount during the Pre-ICO period.

Payment Procedure

According to the Charter,

“at the end of each quarter 30 percent of profits from the payment and credit service, ESR Wallet is transferred to specialized wallets, after which BTC, BCH, ETH, ZEC, DASH, LTC will be distributed among ESR token-holders as per the terms and conditions of the smart contract. Profit gained in USD and EUR will be converted at ESR Wallet market price as of the date of distribution of dividends in ETH and transferred to the relevant wallet.”

About ESR Wallet

ESR Wallet is developing a platform that will transform the cryptocurrency industry and create financial incentives for its users.

ESR’s mission is to develop a universal wallet with a full range of banking services and 20% per annum rate for deposits in any cryptocurrency. With cryptocurrency becoming a bigger part of the economy at a faster pace than expected, it is one’s first concern to be able to manage and spend them, just like USD, EUR, and other currencies. Technology and finance are more than ever intrinsically linked and we won’t be able to move forward in the cryptoworld without platforms such as ESR Wallet.

ESR is advised by the brilliant ANDREY ZAMOVSKIY, founder of Ambisafe, who has been involved in the cryptocurrency development since its early beginning and OLEKSII MATIIASEVYCH, who helped to save $1,4 Mln worth of Ether during the Parity Ethereum wallet attack.

HomeToken Announces ICO After Raising $3 Million in Pre-ICO Investment, Crowdsale Starts October 1, 2017

Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain based real estate investment start-up, HomeToken has announced the launch dates for its upcoming crowdsale. 

September 16, 2017, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – HomeToken, the Asian blockchain powered investment fund focused on the real estate market has announced the launch date for its upcoming crowdsale. Starting October 1, 2017, the start-up will start offering its WAVES protocol based HOME tokens to the crowdsale participants.

HomeToken has already raised over $3 million in investment during its Pre-ICO fundraising round from Southeast Asian investors. The start-up is offering global investors a unique opportunity to invest in emerging Asia’s real estate market by creating a closed-ended fund to acquire and develop two types of residential properties:

  • Small apartments ranging in sizes from 250 to 1200 square feet strategically located near city centre, and
  • Private nursing homes, the first of which was launched on 1st September 2017.

Real estate investment is one of the safest and most lucrative investment forms that provides good capital appreciation, potential rental income, and a solid hedge against rising inflation. The properties situated in Asia’s emerging markets have the potential to outperform real estate markets in North America and Europe. However, with the price of real estate growing at an accelerated rate than the growth of income, prospective investors and homeowners are resorting to alternative solutions.

Outlining the start-up’s mission, the founder of HomeToken Andrew Yap said,

“Over the past few years, Chinese real estate developers such as Country Garden, invested billions to develop ambitious projects in Southeast Asia. Although real estate prices here are relatively cheap when compared to other parts of the world, the investment properties we own must be strategically located and easy to rent out. In addition, we intend to develop more private nursing homes to tackle Asia’s impending aging crisis”

HomeToken is focused on acquiring high income producing investment properties. By tokenizing these properties, the start-up will simplify real estate investments, democratizing it with blockchain technology and provide a platform for investors to profit from the income-producing properties without the costs and risks of traditional real estate investments.

The underlying profitability model of HomeToken is derived from the rental and capital appreciation of these apartments and nursing homes under its ownership.  With this business model, barriers to entry like mortgages, legal and insurance fees are broken down, purchase and transfer of properties are instantaneous, and liquidity of funds is assured. Additionally, HomeToken will repurchase HOME tokens from the holders at market rates, under its buyback program to avoid inflation of market prices in 2018.

To maintain the integrity, and ensure transparency and accountability, all investments in the HomeToken’s portfolio will be recorded and publicly posted on Youtube. HomeToken will also be responsible for managing and maintaining these investments on behalf of the investors.

The total supply of tokens is limited to 100,000,000, out of which 65% will be made available for the crowdsale, 20% will go into future partnerships and joint ventures, 5% for marketing costs, and the remaining 10% will be retained by the development and management team. The funds generated during the ICO stage will be kept in a multi-signature wallet with escrow. All unsold tokens will be burned.

HomeToken has already made headway by opening its first private nursing home, as a part of its portfolio which received its first resident on September 7, 2017. With a pre-existing real estate portfolio, geopolitical developments surrounding China’s One Belt One Road policy and skyrocketing property prices has put HomeToken in a unique position to forge meaningful alliances with other potential partners in the coming days as the demand for properties in the region is expected to increase further.

modum.io Announces Crowdsale for Revolutionary Blockchain and IoT Implementation in Pharma Supply Chain

Bitcoin Press Release: modum.io has announced the launch of its ICO campaign, starting September 1, 2017, as it targets $8.1 trillion per year global logistics market.

September 1, 2017, Zurich, Switzerland – modum.io has announced the public crowdsale of its MOD token starting September 1, 2017, following a very successful private pre-sale. The platform implementing blockchain and Internet of Things technology within the pharma supply chain witnesses token sales worth around $1.25 million within 24 hours in its recently concluded private pre-sale.

modum.io has allocated 20.1 million of the total 30 million MOD tokens for crowdsale. With 2.1 million already sold in the invite-only pre-sale, the remaining 18.1 million will be sold in three tiers during the upcoming ICO. The platform will offer the first 6 million tokens at a 30% discount. The second set of tokens will be issued with a 15% discount and the last 6 million will be sold at full price.

Additionally, modum.io will set aside 9.9 million tokens in a smart contract for use in the bug bounty program as well as profit sharing rights for the next three years.

modum.io has developed sensors that record the environmental conditions a package experiences en route to its destination. Senders will be able to pre-program parameters so that they can be notified if a change in the environment that may affect the product has occurred.

Use of the blockchain for audit-ability allows this sensor to fulfill regulatory requirements, and the passive nature of the devices themselves could bring about industry wide savings of $3.6 billion per annum.

Modum.io’s CEO, Malik El Bay, explains:

“We have a solid product with several successful pilot tests completed, a working hardware prototype, a strong team of developers, and a handpicked team of advisors. We are running this token sale to fundraise for the future development of modum.io and will give our cryptocurrency backers the same rights that institutionalized investors have.”

The token will be built upon the Ethereum blockchain, with 1 MOD being worth $1.00. Participants in the initial token sale can purchase the tokens against payment made in Bitcoin, Ethereum or IOTA, owing to the platform’s strategic partnership with IOTA to create an infrastructure allowing transactions without cost-prohibitive fees as needed.

According to El Bay,

“To execute our vision, we need a technology for our sensor devices that allows the transfer of value without charging tremendous transaction fees. IOTA’s infrastructure will be very valuable to us and are working towards a proof-of-concept for our next industry tests. We plan to publish the results by fall 2017.”

While Ethereum is chosen as the blockchain on which smart contracts are created, the modum.io platform itself will be blockchain agnostic, and the team behind the project is already looking for ways to integrate other smart contract-enabled blockchains.

Token holders will not only enjoy profit dividends but also voting rights, proportional to the number of tokens they hold.

About modum.io

Located in Zurich, between the “Crypto Valley” in Zug and Basel, a hub for major pharma players, Modum is well positioned to bring their system to market. Modum works from Technopark, a well-established centre for tech start-ups and innovation in Switzerland. The company benefits from strategic partnerships with the University of Zurich and the University of St. Gallen and industry partners, including Schaer Pharma, Variosystems, and Lykke Corp.

UTRUST Brings Consumer Protections to Cryptocurrencies, Announces Pre ICO

Bitcoin Press Release: To enable mainstream consumer adoption of cryptocurrencies, payments startup UTRUST will implement the world’s first cryptocurrency consumer protections into its platform: announces pre ICO on August 28, 2017.

August 21, 2017 Zug, Switzerland – Fintech solutions company UTRUST is excited to announce plans to transform the cryptocurrency payments landscape. With an experienced team spanning corporate management, B2C startups, payments, blockchain development, law, finance, and more, UTRUST is confident it will deliver the payments platform of the future. More information about UTRUST’s vision and roadmap is available on the website and in the official whitepaper.

Cryptocurrencies have come a long way since the launch of Bitcoin in 2009. With fast transactions, low fees, and their trustless decentralized nature with no need for cumbersome legacy intermediaries, they have proven to be highly disruptive.

While the implementation of crypto-tokens and blockchain systems is exploding across industries worldwide, their adoption as an instrument of value transfer for day-to-day consumer transactions is still low. This is mainly due to the lack of payment protections and ease of use that consumers have come to expect and currently only enjoy with legacy payment solutions.

By offering built-in consumer protection features in the form of an escrow-like trusted mediator, crypto-to-fiat settlement to counter currency volatility for merchants, and multi-cryptocurrency support, UTRUST’s vision is to be the PayPal for the cryptocurrency sector.

UTRUST’s ultimate goal is to usher in the adoption of cryptocurrencies by the mainstream. This will be achieved by providing all the benefits of fast, secure, convenient, and inexpensive cryptocurrency transactions, in tandem with the world’s first cryptocurrency payment protections, which consumers need to fully embrace blockchain technology en masse.

Some more key advantages offered by the UTRUST platform will include; lower buyer purchase risk, payment approval speed, low exchange fees, low seller fees, support for multiple cryptocurrencies, safety of funds, no chargebacks, customer payment protection, efficient resolution of disputes, performance-based ratings for sellers, and a decentralized UTRUST token with its value linked to the platform’s projected growth.

As the company works on building out the payments platform of the future, it has announced the launch of a crowdsale. UTRUST’s Pre-ICO is scheduled to begin on August 28, 2017, at 1600 hours (GMT).

UTRUST Token and Crowdsale

UTRUST will raise the funds required to develop and launch its unprecedented crypto payments platform through the upcoming ICO. The Pre-ICO begins on August 28, 2017, with the public ICO starting on September 4, 2017. Funds collected will be utilized to establish key partnerships, and build out UTRUST’s PayPal-like platform for cryptocurrencies as outlined in the whitepaper.

During the crowdsale, participants will be able to purchase the native ERC20 compatible UTRUST tokens created on the Ethereum protocol. The UTRUST team have chosen Ethereum so they can leverage upon its existing infrastructure; development tools, wallets, exchanges and human resource expertise.

UTRUST’s token can be used for making zero fee payments to the thousands of merchants accepting any cryptocurrency via UTRUST, and be traded against other currencies on supported exchange platforms.

UTRUST token holders are rewarded for their encouragement and faith in the platform. The company has a mechanism in place allowing it to invest a portion of the transaction fees to buyback and burn UTRUST tokens, removing them from circulation.

This means that like Bitcoin, UTRUST tokens are deflationary by design: token supply will go down over time, and alongside the growing adoption of UTRUST, drive demand upwards, strengthening the token’s market value.
