Common sites with HIGHEST payout and STABLE income << 04/10/2020 >>
This is a long post, but please try to read it all and select the most suitable one for you. When you see any sites with good payout and good potential, feel free to create a post. Also when you know site that is scam, please create a post to alert everyone as soon as possible.

There're 4 main and common types of task you will encounter when using beermoney sites. You can use all the sites or just pick the most suitable type and site to work with. Using more than one site is recommended, as the number of tasks on one site is not high enough, and the tasks will not appear continuously.

I. MICRO-TASK (or Crowdsourcing task)

The task varies from article assessment, information collection, search-query classification/answer relevance, taking or collecting photo/video, to object identification,... The number of tasks will increase when you complete more tasks.
Pros:
- The number of tasks is higher and more stable than other types of beermoney task.
- The payout is appropriate to your time and effort. You can even make stable income with them.
Cons:
- Sometimes you will need to pass the training test to access the task.
- Your work may not be accepted if it does not meet the guideline.
- It can be a little hard in the beginning, there're also not many tasks for you, but BE PATIENT, because they haven't been able to fully assess your ability yet.
1-Toloka Yandex:
This is one of my favorite micro-task sites, and is the first on the list when I make beermoney site suggestion.
The tasks are mainly in English and Russian. They also have tasks in your mother language too, depend on your setting and location. Don't worry about the language, as you can easily have it to be translated with translate extension (like Google Translate) or with any translation site. The task is easy enough to understand.
The minimum withdrawal is $0.02 if you request to withdrawal once a week, and it will be $1 if more than once a week. You can withdraw the money to PayPal, Payoneer, Skrill or Papara. But to be able to withdraw with PayPal, you will need a verified PayPal account.
Earnings with Toloka
Here are registration links: ref-link and no-ref
2-Clickworker:
One of the most popular micro-task sites, you can find many recommendations and good reputation about them. But to make the most if it, you will need to unlock UHRS, as describe here.
You definitely shouldn't miss Clickworker and UHRS. Their payout rate is higher than Toloka, however it usually takes a month for your earning to become payable. Depend on your location and language, you can earn a great amount of money here, the highest I've earned in 1 day is $35. Be careful that you'll be considered spam if you complete the task too fast
You can receive payment to PayPal account with the minimum of €5. You can choose other payment methods too, like SEPA transfers and Transferwise.
(I'll update payment proof when receiving one - still need some days for the earning to become payable T_T)
No need to say anymore, here are the links: ref-link and no-ref
3-Remotasks
You will need to take part in training (which is quite hard and time-consuming) and pass the test to be able to access the tasks here. The tasks are categorization, text highlighting, image annotation, semantic segmentation,... and well-known Lidar Annotation and Segmentation.
Here are registration links: ref-link and no-ref

NOTE FOR MICRO-TASK:
  1. It's highly recommended to use all those sites, and maybe other sites if you want, because the tasks are not shown continuously.
  2. Make sure to fully understand the guideline, as you will not be credited if you work fails to meet the requirement, which will waste your time and effort.
  3. If you find any task that has low credit but requires a lot of time and effort, don't do it. If requester can still find worker with such low pay, they will continue to do so. It's not worth your time, just going to other tasks or going to other sites to see if there're any available tasks for you.

II. OFFER WALL TASK

Another way to earn beermoney online is to complete Offer wall tasks. You will be asked to install app on your smartphone, sign up, play game and reach determined level, or watching video,.... Doing survey can also be listed here, but it will be shown in separate section.
There're many offer walls for you to choose, with different payout level. Usually each beermoney site will list many offer walls, one offer can appear in more than one site/wall, so make sure to surf around and compare the credit to find the best and highest payout wall/site for that offer.
Pros:
- Easy to do
- Can complete offer many times if you have different kinds of phone (mostly Android and iOS), or using another phone as the tasks are listed on many offer walls.
- Can earn money while playing and relaxing, as mostly the offered apps are games. Some apps only requires you to install and open, make it really quick to have some beermoney.
Cons:
- The payout is not very high. Especially when that offer is going through many walls and sites to reach you.
- Some offers take much time to complete.
- The number of offers is not high enough to do daily.
1-RewardXP
RewardXP has surpassed GG2U to become the highest payout site. They have leveling system, the higher level you reach, the more offer walls you can access and the more benefit you can get.
With the minimum of $5, they provide a variety of withdrawal methods for you to choose, like PayPal, Amazon, Steam,...
Withdraw with $5 minimum from RewardXP
You definitely should try this site. Here are your registration links: ref-link and no-ref. Registration with referral link, you will be given a 5000XP (~$0.5) bonus.
2-GG2U:
This is also my favorite site. Their paying rate is one of the highest in the market (if you find any other site which is higher, feel free to make a suggestion :D THE HIGHEST ONE NOW is RewardXP, see above). Aside from installing and registering app, they also have many survey walls for you.
The most attractive part is that they will give you $1 bonus right after signing up, and after 5 withdrawal requests, you will have a chance to earn up to $7 bonus. With the bonus program, it's hard to say which is better, RewardXP or GG2U.
You can withdraw money to your PayPal account or Coinbase (crypto wallet), with the minimum of $7.
Earning with GG2U
Here are your links: ref-link and no-ref
3-Cointiply
One of the most popular sites, with great community.
They will pay you with cryptocurrency like Bitcoin or Doge. You will have many chances to earn coins, by doing offer walls task, rolling the faucet every 1 hour, testing your luck with multiplier or by activating in their packed chat room.
You can also earn some coins by clicking Paid-to-click ads. Most of the time, those ads are from Cointiply user with their referral link embedded, so if you register sites when viewing those ads, they will earn some commission. You can try this strategy too :D
With their mobile app, it will be much easier to do mobile offers. Make sure to check your email and mobile app to get the user-limited Promotion Codes regularly.
Registration links: ref-link and no-ref
4-Swagbucks
Sometimes you can earn money by spending less. Swagbucks offers a big number of sites where you can receive cash back when you shop online. If you shop online a lot, it's worth to take a look
Here are registration link for shopping: ref-link-shopping and no-ref-shopping
Beside the cash back program, Swagbucks also provides offer wall, however the paying rate is not as high as site 1 and 2 above. Anyway, if you want to try, here are your registration links: ref-link and no-ref
5-EarnCrypto
If you're into doing offer walls task and earning crypto currency, try this site too.
Their paying rate is quite lower than above sites, but they have Data entry task, which is daily. By ranking high on their daily leader board, you will be rewarded with a great amount of coins (can even be higher than your earning from doing the data entry task itself :D).
There are many kinds of crypto currency for you to select.
Just take a look if you have much free time and have nothing else to do: ref-link and no-ref

NOTE FOR OFFER WALL TASK:
  1. Every offerwall has a place to track your activity history, like what offer you clicked, what offer you completed and did you receive credit or not. Every time you're about to do an offer, after entering that offer (usually when you click an offer, a small panel about what offer is appears, there will be a button name 'continue' or 'go to offer', after you click that button, you're entering the offer), make sure that offer appears in your history tab of that offer wall. This will enable you to request support in case you complete the offer and have not received credit yet. If it does not appear in the history list, you will not be credited for that offer, so try to click it again.
  2. To find the history tab, after entering offer wall, you will need to find a button named 'My coin', 'My history', 'Support', or button with question mark,... That button should be easy to be found.
  3. Try to surf around to find the offer wall and site having the highest paying rate for the offer, as the same offer will appear in many offer walls and sites.
  4. When you're about to start to do an offer of installing app (especially game), try to read the comment in appstore/playstore to see whether the offer's requirements can be easily to fulfill or not. For example, the requirements are: 1. install game, 2. open it, 3. reach level 30; and you find some comment about cannot reach level 25, or it takes months to reach level 29, then skip that offer, it's not worth the try.

III. PAY TO SEARCH

You can earn nearly passive income from this type of task. They will give you some query, you will search with that query, entering determined site, leaving that site opened for couple of minutes.
Pros:
- It's super easy to do.
- While leaving the site open, you can do any other thing you want, like doing some micro-tasks.
- The paying rate is quite good, especially when you don't need to do much.
Cons:
- The number of queries is not very high.
1-SerpClix
In order to receive more queries to search, make sure to leave the site open and allow the notification.
Even though SerpClix recommends you to interact with the website, it's not necessary because SerpClix will automatically navigate to sub page of that page. Another suggestion here is to install adblock extension, because SerpClix will ban you if you click on any ads on the page, so blocking them beforehand is a good move.
Earning from SerpClix
Here are your registration links: ref-link and no-ref

IV. SURVEY

Probably all offer walls have some kind of surveys there, some surveys are only available through offer walls, some have their own sites. By using their own sites will not guarantee that you will have higher payout though.
Make sure to be honest when doing surveys, despite the fact that you will sometime be disqualified from the survey. There are many reasons why you are disqualified, like because your job is not suitable, your demography is not their target, your answer is not persistent,...
BE CAREFUL, they will keep track of you, even if you clear your cookie, so being dishonest can lead you to be banned from their sites. Again, BE HONEST, and there will be suitable surveys for you.
There will be two types of survey for you: the first one is filling form and selecting answer from their suggestion, the second one is to talk with them directly or via Video call apps. The second one has much much higher earning but the requirement is also higher too.
Pros:
- Easy to do, just being honest
- High payout, especially with the second type of surveys.
- Some survey only need 5 minutes to complete with a high reward.
Cons:
- Some survey can take about 30 minutes to complete, so make sure that you have enough free time.
- You will be disqualified if your information is not suitable to their survey's target.
1-SurveyTime
One of the best sites out there, my favorite one. They will instantly send you $1 or $0.5 (depend on the survey) to your PayPal or Coinbase account when you complete the survey, so no minimum required to withdrawal. The survey you will do here is the first type, filling in the form and selecting answer.
Instant payment from SurveyTime
You can register with SurveyTime through some offer walls, as they will give you some more coins when you complete the survey, but make sure to check their conditions.
Make sure to turn on Browser notification and Email notification so that you don't miss any survey.
Registration links: no-ref
2-Respondent
You will need a microphone and/or webcam (built-in or external) as the survey in Respondent is conducted via video calls, phone calls, in-person discussions. Of course, you will receive a huge reward for doing surveys here, from $5 up-to $1000. This's a great deal, one successful survey can get you more credit than doing hundreds of micro-tasks. Don't miss this site.
They will recommend suitable survey for you, but if you want to view all available survey, make sure to uncheck the 'Recommended' option in Filter panel.
Here're your registration links: ref-link and no-ref

NOTE FOR SURVEY:
  1. Sometimes, they will provide the must-select answer in the question to test if your attention. Make sure to read the question carefully. For example, the question is "Do you agree that 1 + 1 = 2? Select option [I do not agree] in the answer", if you select [I agree], you fail.
  2. BE CAREFUL - BE HONEST
  3. When you're doing the first type survey (filling form, selecting answer), be careful not to install any app, or download anything, or upload your social data file when asked. In that case, just contact survey site support and report it.
  4. It's better to use different survey sites to maximum the number of surveys you receive.

Last word, BE PATIENT - earning online can be a little hard in the beginning.

Feel free to share your experience when using beermoney sites (and your referral link too :D) or ask question about any beermoney sites by creating new post. Also, creating new post when you know that any site is a scam or becomes scam.

P.S 1: In case you need a Crypto wallet, you can use Coinbase, registration links: ref-link and no-ref, or Binance ref-link and no-ref. You can read here for the comparison between Coibase and Binance
P.S 2: You can add some email addresses to PayPal account, so you can use many email address to register to beermoney sites if you want
P.S 3: If you're confident with your English, and have a computer, microphone and webcam, you can try Usertesting site, you will visit a website that requires you to test, talk about your experience of using that site

A detailed simple guide for Pundi X in Spanish language.

Website; https://www.bitcobie.com/pundix/
Extracted from site below;
¿Qué es Pundi X?
Comprar criptomonedas debería de ser tan fácil como comprar una botella de agua. Esta frase es el eslogan oficial de Pundi X y no hay una frase que defina mejor al proyecto ni el camino que deben coger las criptomonedas para llegar a una adopción masiva.
A principios de 2018, justo cuando se empezó a desinflar el mercado tras el espectacular rally del 2017, Pundi X cumplía con las expectativas y consigue recaudar en su ICO 35 millones de dólares en apenas 90 minutos.
No era para menos ya que Pundi X puede convertirse en una pieza clave para el éxito de todo el ecosistema blockchain. Lo interesante de este proyecto es que se puede convertir en el puente perfecto para que el resto de las criptomonedas lleguen a billones de personas que de otra manera tardarían mucho más en conocerles.
Comprar criptomonedas debería de ser tan fácil como comprar una botella de agua.CLIC PARA TUITEAR
Las aspiraciones de esta ambiciosa empresa son el desplegar una gigantesca red de puntos de venta con la que facilitarían el acceso a la criptoeconomía a entusiastas, comerciantes y cada vez a más usuarios para así llegar lo antes posible a una plena adopción de las criptomonedas.
Este proyecto de origen indonesio nace también con un gran propósito, que es el de dar acceso a servicios financieros a la población desbancarizada de indonesia que es una inmensa mayoría. Ese mismo modelo lo podrán replicar en zonas de África y Sudamérica, sin duda es un nicho de mercado prácticamente infinito.
Pundi X ofrecerá también a los usuarios un monedero simplificado y es que la fortaleza de este proyecto es la debilidad de muchos otros, la larga y costosa curva de aprendizaje del usuario medio es lo que pone más barreras a la entrada de nuevas personas al criptomundo, con Pundi X esta curva se hace mucho más pequeña y llevadera.
¿Quién es quien en el equipo de Pundi X?
Para mucha gente el equipo de Pundi X es de los más activos que existen y el trabajo en el proyecto es constante, además de eso es un equipo muy abierto a la comunidad y lo han demostrado con numerosos ejemplos en los que se han atendido peticiones de los usuarios en beneficio del proyecto.
Su CEO y cabeza visible es Zac Cheah, formado en diversas universidades tecnológicas y con una amplia experiencia en el ámbito de los videojuegos, ha trabajado en Google y en Opera. No duda en moverse por todo el mundo para mostrar las posibilidades de Pundi X a curiosos e inversores.
Pitt Huang es su CTO/COO, emprendedor desde muy temprana edad vendió su primera empresa a los 25 años, es un apasionado de los gadgets y una figura muy importante para PundiX, igual que su presidente Constantin Papadimiriou, que cuenta con una dilatada experiencia en el ámbito del Fintech.
El CFO de PundiX, Danny Lim, es un experto financiero con experiencia laboral en Lenovo o Baidu. El equipo lo cierra David Ben Kay, que es el encargado de que todos los ámbitos legales y normativos se cumplan. David estuvo dentro de la Ethereum Foundation, en Microsoft China y se graduó en la universidad de UCLA.
Este equipo se complementa con una infinidad de embajadoresrepartidos por todo el mundo que hace una labor diaria de acercamiento a la comunidad, recientemente se ha nombrado a Joao Victor representante de PundiX en Latinoamérica, a Liko Yosafat como una de las personas más activas dentro de Pundi X o a Gerhard Drobits, responsable de PundiX en Europa.
¿Cuales son las alianzas de Pundi X?
La naturaleza del proyecto de PundiX permite que para los grandes actores del criptomundo les sea muy atractivo remar al costado de este gran proyecto. Ahora mismo entre las filas de asociaciones con PundiX se encuentran empresas como Binance, Nem, Verge, Qtum, Stellar, Achain, ZCash, Utrust o Fintech Indonesia entre muchos otros.
Se rumorea también por internet que Pundi X pudiese tener entre parte de sus advisors a gente de McDonalds Indonesia o Nike, de eso no hemos podido confirmarlo así que lo dejaremos como un simple rumor, pero sin duda es cuestión de tiempo que grandes empresas se sumen a la revolución de las criptomonedas.
¿Qué es NPXS?
NPXS es el actual token de Pundi X, un token ERC20, funciona en la blockchain de Ethereum y es el gas de la plataforma PundiX y el que garantiza su funcionamiento.
En un principio el token de Pundi X era PXS, pero tras recibir innumerables peticiones por parte de la comunidad de realizar una fracción mayor del mismo la comunidad decidió realizar un swap, en el que el usuario que enviaba un PXS recibiía 1.000 NPXS. De esa manera las métricas de Pundi X se convirtieron en algo más coherente para el correcto funcionamiento del XPOS, la joya de la corona.
Es muy importante que conozcas la naturaleza real del token NPXS, ya que no fue ideado para convertirse en un medio de pago, si lo fue Pundi X, el token NPXS es la gasolina del XPOS y el elemento con el que se podrá interactuar tanto con la empresa como con las funciones del punto de venta.
Podrás observar que el número total de tokens de Pundi X es bastante mayor que el de la mayoría de criptomonedas, algunos eso lo ven como un freno a una subida considerable de su precio, pero la realidad es que si el supply fuera más bajo quizás se quedaría corto una vez desplegada toda la rede de puntos de venta, que es el propósito por el que trabaja el equipo de Pundi X.
¿Cómo funciona el airdrop de Pundi X?
Mucha gente llega a este proyecto por su airdrop y es que parte de la distribución planteada por Pundi X en su Whitepaper es la de desbloquear los tokens en beneficio de sus holders progresivamente todos los meses, así quedó fijado que durante el 2018 se daría cada mes un 7,316% sobre los tokens que hubiese en cada wallet de Pundi X, incluso estando en la mayoría de exchanges, aunque no en todos en los que se pueden negociar.
Este porcentaje se reducirá en 2019 al 2,11637% y al 0,88187% a partir de enero del 2020, dando por finalizada la distribución del token de Pundi X el 31 de enero de 2021.
Este sistema que a priori es muy atractivo para el poseedor de Pundi X a largo plazo se convirtió a mediados de 2018, en pleno mercado bajista, en un arma de doble filo para el holder ya que la sencillez de obtener los tokens atrajo a más especuladores de los que podría soportar el proyecto.
El sistema de distribución antiguo solo requería tener tokens de Pundi X tres horas antes del snapshoot y tres horas después. Esa cantidad es la que determina cuantos tokens tenía tu wallet y acto seguido al cabo de unos días recibías tu recompensa por aguantarlos.
Este sistema provocó que un gran número de personas compraran masivamente NPXS antes de la foto y vendieran inmediatamente después ya que una vez hecha esta, recibirían igualmente los tokens que les corresponde, esos tokens por supuesto se vendían nada más llegar para arañar BTC o ETH, convirtiendo a Pundi X en un “proyecto escalón” vapuleado por grandes especuladores que perjudicaban al fiel holder de Pundi X.

Revisando el sistema de distribución de tokens
Una vez más el equipo decidió escuchar las numerosas peticiones de revisar el sistema de distribución de los tokens de PundiX y propuso a votación en agosto del 2018 un nuevo sistema, que, aunque no es totalmente perfecto, es inifinitamente más justo con el holder de Pundi X que el anterior.
El nuevo sistema hace una media de los tokens que tienes durante todo el mes en tu monedero, de tal manera que para recibir el 7,316% total de 1 NPXS este tiene que estar 30 días en tu poder, de no ser así te corresponde la parte proporcional a los días que lo hayas guardado. La nueva formula es la siguiente:
(La cantidad más baja de tokens NPXS del mes X 10%) + (la cantidad promedio diaria de NPXS X el resto de los días de retención X 90%)
Para que lo entiendas mejor, te planteamos tres ejemplos:
Ejemplo 1:
Imagina que a principio de mes tienes 2.000 NPXS, decides vender 1.000 NPXS el 15 de agosto y vuelves a comprar 1.000 el 30 de agosto. Realmente solo hay dos transacciones en tu monedero ese mes y el número de tokens es el mismo al final de mes, pero durante 14 días sólo has tenido 1.000 NPXS, por lo tanto:
(1000 x 10%) + {[(2000 x 14 días) + (1000 x 14 días) + (2000 x 2 días)] / 30 días} X 90% = 1480
Los tokens desbloqueados que recibirás serán alrededor de 108 NPXS (1480 X 7.316% = 108)
Ejemplo 2:
Si no tenías ningún NPXS a principio de mes y decides comprar 2.000 NPXS el 30 de agosto, sólo has tenido tokens de Pundi X 2 días, por lo que entiende la comunidad que no es justo que recibas lo mismo que alguien que los ha tenido todo el mes, por lo tanto con el nuevo sistema el calculo sería:
(0 x 10%) + {[(2000 x 2 días + 0 x 28 días) / 30 días] X 90%} = 120
120 X 7.316% = 8
Los tokens desbloqueados que recibirá serán aproximadamente 8 NPXS.
Ejemplo 3:
Si el número de tokens de tu monedero no varía en todo el mes, es decir tienes 2.000 NPXS y no haces ningún movimiento lo que recibirás es lo siguiente:
(2000x 10%) + [(2000 x 30 días) / 30 días] X 90% = 2000
2000 X 7.316% = 146
Recibirá alrededor de 146 NPXS
Reparto equitativo de tokens
Como puedes observar este sistema reparte de una manera equitativalos tokens en función a los días que los mantienes en la cartera, por lo tanto si tu idea es acumular y recibir el total del airdrop mensual es importante que compres los tokens antes de las 23:59:59 SGT (GMT+8) del último día de mes, para recibir el mes siguiente el porcentaje total de la distribución de tokens de Pundi X.
Este reparto entrará en funcionamiento a partir de septiembre del 2018, el equipo aún no sabe si por dificultades técnicas las casas de cambio harán correctamente ese reparto por lo tanto recomiendan fervientemente mantener los tokens de Pundi X en una wallet ERC20 en la que tengas el control de tus claves privadas.
En un nuevo comunicado el equipo ha anunciado el día 28 de agosto del 2018 que los exchange Binance y OkCoin Korea soportarán el nuevo sistema de airdrop.
(Nosotros en Bitcobie te lo recomendamos inclusive si los exchanges hiciesen el reparto correctamente ya que, sin control de tu clave privada, no tienes realmente nada)
Cómo invertir en PundiX sin morir en el intento
PundiX actualmente es un token ERC20, por lo tanto, funciona en la blockchain de Ethereum y como todos los tokens ERC20 se puede almacenar en una wallet compatible con esa tipología de tokens. Por lo cual, el primer paso que tienes que realizar es el de elegir bien donde vas a almacenar tus NPXS.
El equipo de Pundi X (y Bitcobie) te recomienda fervientemente que almacenes tus tokens NPXS en una wallet en la cual controles las claves privadas, bien puede ser en MyEtherWallet, usando la interfaz de Metamask o en tu Ledger Nano, siempre en función a la seguridad con la que quieras trabajar.
Lo que no es recomendable y no sólo por no recibir correctamente el airdrop con el nuevo sistema, es almacenarlas en un Exchange. No olvides que si lo haces de esa manera no tendrás el control de tu clave privada por lo tanto serás vulnerable a los hackeos de estas páginas pudiendo perder todos tus fondos.
Una vez elegido el recipiente es importante que te hagas con Bitcoin o Ethereum para intercambiarlo por Pundi X, actualmente no hay ninguna casa de cambio que acepte el cambio directo entre Pundi X y dinero FIAT. Para eso las opciones recomendadas suelen ser Coinbase, Localbitcoins o si resides en España, Bit2me, una página que realmente pone muy fácil al usuario el acceder a sus primeras criptomonedas.
La verdadera revolución de Blockchain llegara cuando mejore al menos 10 veces lo que tenemos hasta ahora.CLIC PARA TUITEAR

Cuando tengas la cantidad deseada de Ether o Bitcoin, deberás mandarlos a la casa de cambio de tu elección que permita el intercambio de esas criptomonedas por Pundi X, actualmente puedes hacerlo en: Binance, Latoken, Hotbit, Coinnest, Bitbns, CoinBene, Coinrail, Gate.io, Tidex, Tokenomy, Bit-Z y Radar Relay (por orden de volumen diario)
Una vez hecha tu compra llega el momento de decidir enviarlos o no a la wallet que has escogido previamente, nuestra recomendación es que te fijes siempre en las comisiones que te vayan a cobrar las casas de cambio, hay ocasiones en que, si la cantidad adquirida es muy pequeña, la comisión se come demasiada parte del lote.
Si tu idea es tradear con Pundi X, lo mejor es que lo mantengas en el Exchange de tu elección para poder disponer de ello cuando sea necesario, aunque si ese va a ser tu camino, a partir de septiembre podemos decir que el airdrop para ti será totalmente testimonial ya que buscarás beneficios por otra vía que no es la del holder.
¿Qué es NPXSEM y en qué se diferencia de NPXS?
Este punto es delicado para algunos de los inversores de Pundi X, pero nada más lejos de la realidad. Pundi X llegó un acuerdo con NEM para desarrollar también sus XPOS en la blockchain de NEM, este acuerdo implica la distribución de 20.000 dispositivos en tres años (las previsiones para Pundi X son de distribuir al menos 100.000 dispositivos en tres años)
Esta versión del token no divide al proyecto ya que el proyecto siempre ha sido NPXS, en el caso de NEM es simplemente un cliente del proyecto, ya que toda la investigación y desarrollo del equipo de Pundi X se centra en NPXS. Además, todas las funciones del XPOS se realizarán con NPXS y el uso del XPOS basado en NEM también quemará tokens NPX.
Si has llegado aquí para saber de uno y de otro proyecto, lo que tienes que tener claro es que el que actualmente tiene más volumen, más equipo, más distribución y mayor proyección es NPXS, el otro token es independiente de los logros del primero.
La blockchain de Pundi X, f(x)
Uno de los anuncios más importantes de Pundi X desde su lanzamiento ha sido el de su futura blockchain. Una vez lanzada Pundi X dejaría de depender de la red de Ethereum o Nem, y pasaría a ser un agente muy poderoso en el criptomundo y teniendo en cuenta las aspiraciones de convertirse en el puente entre el mundo real y el criptomundo, era necesario dar un paso así.
Internet cambió por completo todas las capas del mundo. El TCP/IP se convirtió en el estándar de comunicación y empresas como Cisco o IBM fueron las encargadas de colocar las tuberías y engrasar la maquinaria que ejecutaría esos protocolos. Internet propició un mecanismo de información tan rápido que han permitido a Google, Facebook o Amazon terminar prácticamente con la industria tradicional de comunicación e información. ¿Puede blockchain convertirse en el próximo internet?
Zac Cheah, CEO de Pundi X Labs, ve la revolución de blockchain en tres fases. Bitcoin fue la carta de presentación al mundo de lo que eran las criptomonedas. Ethereum nos enseñó como construir activos descentralizados, los miles de altcoins que conocemos. La tercera fase de la revolución es lo que tantas compañías Blockchain anhelan, llevar el rendimiento de la cadena de bloques a un nivel completamente superior al de la industria tradicional e internet.
Para llegar a ese punto, es necesario que blockchain mejore al menos 10 veces lo que tenemos hasta ahora. En otros momentos revolucionarios, Disquetes, VHS, fibra óptica, han demostrado que esa mejora es esencial en la ecuación si se pretende cambiar un estándar.
Velocidad x10
Actualmente Visa puede ejecutar entre 7.000 y 20.000 transacciones por segundo, TPS. Cualquier cadena de bloques que ofrezca pequeños múltiplos de mejora no desplazará un sistema tan robusto como el de Visa o MasterCard. Una mejora de 10x significa que tendríamos que conseguir 200.000 TPS. Hay varias compañías que pretenden conseguir ese punto, incluso algunas dicen haberlo conseguido, al menos sobre el papel.
PundiX pretende conseguir esa mejora no sobre su whitepaper, sino en aplicaciones reales, ya que de otra forma el resto sería palabrería. La pregunta entonces es si Pundi X puede llegar a esos números o superarlos de manera realista.
Habría que analizar por puntos. El sharding es el proceso de dividir una red global en partes de una red local. Cada red local se hace cargo de un consenso de dos tercios para que una transacción en particular se verifique en la red local para luego transmitirse a la red global.
Esto es uno de los métodos en el que las compañías de blockchain están trabajando muy fuertemente, Pundi X es una de ellas ya que uno de los problemas actuales es que si una blockchain actualmente tiene 21 nodos (por ejemplo) y tarda un segundo para confirmar una transacción, en el momento en el que tenga 210 nodos, tardará 10 segundos en verificar por consenso esa transacción.
Por lo tanto, Pundi X pretende convertir en un nodo cada XPOS que distribuya, de esa forma con el Sharding, conseguiría tener una blockchain con 100.000 nodos, que mediante el sharding conseguiría una velocidad de TPS envidiable.
Escalabilidad x10
Cuanto mayor escalabilidad, más negocios se pueden tener. En blockchain eso está más patente que nunca, en este caso dependemos del código y de los nodos. Actualmente Ethereum es la blockchain con mayor número de nodos, pero quizás no por mucho tiempo. PundiX tiene como objetivo implementar 100.000 XPOS en todo el mundo que actuarían como nodos de la red de PundiX, eso en tres años.
Consenso x10
Muchas veces llegar a un consenso es un gran problema, como en la vida, cuanto más grande es la población más lento es llegar al consenso. Si un pequeño grupo puede decidir por el grupo mayor en un parlamento, el consenso se puede acelerar, ¿pero de qué manera sabemos que hemos elegido bien al grupo que nos gobierna?
PundiX propone que de sus 100.000 XPOS se elijan aleatoriamente el 1% de los nodos para tomar una decisión, pero señala la necesidad de que los nodos no sean de una misma región, ya que eso haría que el consenso no fuese del todo efectivo. Si cumple con su objetivo de distribuir sus XPOS por todo el mundo conseguirá aumentar la velocidad del consenso a la vez que garantiza su descentralización.
Apertura x10
La Blockchain de Pundi X se está construyendo para que todas las blockchains públicas puedan trabajar en ella. Pretenden que desarrolladores puedan crear dAps que se incluirían en la blockchain de Pundi X, los minoristas de XPOS podrán descargar actualizaciones y expandir su oferta a los consumidores, o incluso se podrán desarrollar Smart contracts que permitan una conexión total entre usuarios de Pundi X y emisarios.
F(dApps)
Los desarrolladores especializados en Android podrán desarrollar aplicaciones en f (x) y por ende en el XPOS, de la misma manera que lo hacen con las apps para Android. Habrá una DApp store que permitirá cargar aplicaciones desarrolladas para el XPOS e instalarla en el dispositivo del comerciante, como si de un Smartphone se tratara. El XPOS además servirá de nodo neutral para que otras blockchains puedan desplegar aplicaciones propias.
¿Qué es el XPOS?
El XPOS es la joya de la corona de Pundi X, sin duda es la pieza con la que pretenden revolucionar la revolución que supone para el mundo la tecnología Blockchain. Este aparato, que recuerda por su forma a un datafono permite que la interacción con las criptomonedas sea algo sencillo para el usuario ya que podrá pagar con tarjeta de crédito, con XPASS, con Apps para adquirir criptomonedas o incluso usar estas últimas para intercambiarlas por bienes y servicios.
La implementación de este dispositivo no es meramente comercial, ya que cada uno representará un nodo en la futura blockchain de Pundi X, por lo tanto, son una pieza clave para el éxito de este ambicioso proyecto.
El Pundi X XPOS soporta pagos desde monederos de criptomonedas o de métodos tradicionales como pueden ser Visa, ApplePay etc… De esa manera el comerciante puede tener en un sólo dispositivo todos los métodos de pago que acepte en su tienda. El comerciante también puede recibir beneficios de los anuncios que se pongan en la pantalla del XPOS, estos anuncios se pagarán con NPXS.De una manera sencilla el XPOS ayuda a los comerciantes a facilitar las operaciones de compra venta de Bitcoin, ETH, XEM, QTUM, ACT, NEM, VERGE, BNB y muchos más, ya que incluso se permite el listado de monedas locales siempre que tengan al menos 5.000 usuarios.
Además de esto, el XPOS permite comprobar las transacciones con criptomonedas, las membresías Premium de la tienda, controlar el inventario, controlar los pedidos etc…
Cuando el empleado va a hacer una transacción, como por ejemplo comprar Bitcoin, el usuario ve en la pantalla el precio en moneda local, entonces escanean el código QR con sus monederos y completan la transacción de manera inmediata.Una vez hecha la transacción de manera satisfactoria, el XPOS imprime un recibo para el cliente y el comerciante, como los datafonos tradicionales. En este recibo también se podrían emplazar anuncios, por los que el comerciante recibiría también una comisión.
Hay que destacar que los puntos de ventas convencionales suelen cubrir una gama de funcionalidades, como puede ser una caja registradora, un datafono de tarjetas de crédito o un software para gestionar el inventario. El XPOS de PundiX es capaz de hacer todo eso y aceptar y procesar criptomonedas, de esa manera enriquece la experiencia minorista tanto para comerciantes como para clientes.

Especificaciones técnicas
El XPOS combina lectores de tarjetas múltiples, estándares de encriptación y funciones de casa de cambio de criptomonedas. Todo ello lo consigue además con un dispositivo ligero que se adapta fácilmente a la mano del usuario.
El XPOS tiene una pantalla de 5,5” de alta resolución y un teclado táctil, con la batería puesta el dispositivo pesa 450g, con unas medidas de 210 x 75 61 mm, consiguiendo reducir muy notoriamente el espacio que ocupan los cajeros de bitcoin habituales, facilitando así su distribución en cualquier tipo de proyecto.
Batería: el dispositivo XPOS es alimentado por una batería desmontablede polímero de iones de litio con una capacidad de 4000mAh (salida de 3.8V), equipada con un cable de carga microUSB y una fuente de alimentación externa, así como una batería de celda de botón de respaldo. La batería y el estado de carga están convenientemente indicados por luces LED.
El software que usa el XPOS de Pundi X está basado en Androidañadiendo una capa extra de seguridad, diseñada para admitir tanto apps sobre blockchain como para admitir monederos de criptomonedas o realizar conexiones continuas con casas de cambio seguras.
El hardware del dispositivo incluye un procesador ARM COrtex MTK8735 de cuatro núcleos (1,3GHz), 1 Gb de RAM, ROM 8G y un módulo dedicado de CPU de seguridad, (Megahunt Micro 1901C). El XPOS viene con una variante de ROM2Gb (RAM) + 16Gb. La capacidad de almacenamiento del dispositivo es de 4,11GB
Lectores de tarjeta, bandas magnéticas y lectores Contact-Less
Pundi X ofrece una gran variedad de hardware compatible que incluye un lector de bandas magnéticas, lectores IC de contacto y sin contacto, lector PSAM, Lector SIM/UID y un lector TF.
Además de esos lectores está equipado con una cámara trasera AF de 5MP con flash que permite escanear códigos de barras o QR, tomar fotos para el registro KYC al activar la tarjeta criptográfica, una impresora térmica para imprimir los recibos, puertos de E/S y micrófono y altavoz integrados.
Gestión segura de claves y protocolos de encriptación
La compatibilidad del XPOS es global, se puede usar por todo el globo terráqueo. Las bandas anchas que pueden usarse incluyen FDD-LTE (B1 \ B2 \ B3 \ B5 \ B7 \ B8 \ B20 \ B28), b (B40 \ B41), WCDMA (B1 \ B2 \ B5 \ B8) y GSM (cuadrante banda). También viene con Wi-Fi de doble banda, Bluetooth y GPS incorporado.
La CPU y su área circundante se diseñaron minuciosamente y se han ubicado en un segmento protegido. Cualquier intento de abrir el componente protegido activará la alerta de seguridad y eliminará los datos confidenciales.
El XPOS tiene un diseño de CPU especial para almacenar la clave pública encriptada y proporciona la seguridad física. Tanto el número de identificación único de la CPU como una clave cifrada generada al azar protegen los datos FLASH y la clave pública encriptada, asegurando que los datos subyacentes de XPOS y BOOT, KERNEL sean seguros.
Desde los niveles BOOT, KERNEL, SYSTEM y APK, la verificación de la firma se realiza capa por capa. Solo APK legítimos se pueden instalar en el sistema. Para actualizar la capa subyacente hasta la capa superior, el sistema debe verificar y validar la firma, de lo contrario, las aplicaciones no se pueden instalar en el XPOS.
El lector de banda magnética está diseñado para evitar la extracción o colocación de detectores. Si se detecta dicha acción, activará una alerta de seguridad y eliminará los datos confidenciales.
Precio y distribución del dispositivo
El precio del dispositivo ronda los 300$ si se compran franjas de 1 a 10 dispositivos, en caso de pedidos mayores va descendiendo su precio. El pago de los 300$ se debe hacer en NPXS, tomando el valor del momento de la compra, parte de esos fondos son la garantía de funcionamiento del XPOS ya que es Pundi X siempre la propietaria del dispositivo y la encargada de repararlo o sustituirlo en caso de avería.

Aunque cada dispositivo vendrá con 10 tarjetas, es posible comprar lotes por separado incluso tu como usuario pedir tu propia tarjeta. Una de las características más interesantes es que si un comerciante hace un pedido medio tendrá la posibilidad de personalizar sus tarjetas con su logotipo e incluso el nombre de su cliente.

El plan de distribución de Pundi X es el de conseguir colocar 100.000 dispositivos como mínimo en tres años, viendo la gran demanda de soluciones como la suya, seguramente esa cifra se pueda quedar corta, en Julio del 2018 se inició la distribución de 5.000 dispositivos a los inversores de la ICO y socios estratégicos y en Agosto del 2017 se abrió la posibilidad de realizar un pedido de otros 5.000 dispositivos, en esta ocasión abiertos a todo el mundo.
Comisiones y beneficios para Pundi X y el comerciante
El comerciante que emplea el XPOS obtiene beneficios de diferentes fuentes:
Obtiene un 1% extra sobre el precio como comisión (Se puede configurar desde un 0% a un 3%, aunque Pundi X recomienda usar el 1%)
Puede vender Criptomonedas aplicando de nuevo esa tarifa del 1%
Puede vender las tarjetas XPASS
Puede configurar su inventario, programas de lealtad, anuncios o imprimir recibos inteligentes
Recibir ingresos por publicidad mostrada en sus recibos o dispositivos
Puede aceptar criptomonedas como medio de pago, recibiendo otra vez el 1% de comisión
Por supuesto, será un pionero en tender un puente entre el usuario medio y el criptomundo.
El 100% de los ingreses que genere Pundi X a través de las transacciones en el XPOS se quemarán automáticamente del circulante de NPXS, eso quiere decir que si en una transacción, Pundi X gana 1$ de comisión, se eliminará automáticamente y de forma permanente el equivalente a 1$ en NPXS de ese momento.
El plan de distribución de Pundi X es el de conseguir colocar 100.000 dispositivos como mínimo en tres años.CLIC PARA TUITEAR
Si la operación se ha realizado con tokens de Pundi X, la comisión se retirará automáticamente del circulante, en caso de que la transacción se haya hecho con otra criptomoneda o incluso con FIAT, se realizará una recompra de la comisión que acto seguido se quemará del circulante total. En el caso de que se haga un pago en FIAT incluyendo pagos con tarjetas Visa o Mastercard se quemarán de la misma forma tokens NPXS.
Imagina entonces que un usuario compra un valor de 1.000€ en criptomonedas a un comerciante, y lo hace además usando la tarjeta XPASS. El cargo total que pagará el usuario será de 1.010€, es decir, 1.000€ por el valor de las criptomonedas y 10€ de la comisión del servicio. De estos 10€ se pagan 3,5€ a Pundi X y 6,5€ al comerciante por proporcionar el servicio de XPOS y XPASS.
Si en un mismo caso el usuario no emplea una tarjeta XPASS de Pundi X y emplea una tarjeta de un Partner de Pundi X o del comerciante, la comisión se repartiría en un 65% para el comerciante, un 5% para Pundi X y un 30% para el Partner emisor de la tarjeta.

Conclusión
Cuando estábamos ideando Bitcobie no conocíamos un proyecto como PundiX, si lo hubiésemos hecho, seguramente la primera guía que hubiésemos escrito hubiese sido esta y no la de Bitcoin. No por desmerecer a la reina de las criptomonedas, ni mucho menos. Lo hubiésemos hecho porque PundiX puede convertirse en la pieza clave de la adopción mundial de la tecnología blockchain.
Su solución facilita la vida al usuario y facilita la vida al comerciante, de hecho, la posibilidad de concentrar en el XPOS todo lo que necesita un comercio para funcionar hace que su atractivo se multiplique por 10.
Por no decir que la relación de PundiX con su comunidad es de las más cercanas que hemos podido ver, cosa que se agradece. El equipo muestra una transparencia total y es de los equipos más activos que existen en el panorama cripto.
La noticia de su propia blockchain que a la vez dará servicio a otras blockchain es una muestra más de que PundiX se quiere convertir en una piedra angular para todo el mundo. El convertir los XPOS en nodos es una auténtica jugada maestra que dotará a PundiX de la posibilidad real de mejorar la velocidad de transacciones soportada por un gigante como VISA.
Como en todo en este mundo hay que ser prudentes y ver la blockchain de PundiX en funcionamiento, pero si funciona igual de ligera y eficaz que su XPOS sin duda estamos ante uno de los proyectos más prometedores que se pueden encontrar hoy en día en el criptomundo (Sin contar que es de los pocos que ya tienen un producto en la calle funcionando, no solamente un MVP o una idea).

Scam Projects

Hello!
My name is Kristina Semenova, I am the Head of Investors Relation Department at Platinum, the world’s number one business facilitator.
Our team knows how to start ICO/STO in 2019!
Why are we so sure? Well, our experience speaks for itself:
Platinum.fund
But what is the difference between ico and sto? What is the cornerstone of ICO marketing strategy? You will know this after finishing the UBAI courses!
Here’s just a quick preview of our Short Course lesson.
Real World Examples
Multinational accounting firm Ernst and Young found that $400 million of the $3.7 billion USD raised from ICOs (as of January 22, 2018) had been stolen. That is, up to 10% of all ICO funding is virtually being stolen from investors. Though ICO scams are the most common method of theft in the crypto world, some projects will actually operate for a period of time before disappearing with the money. Like in a Ponzi scheme, an exit scam may be planned for later, sometime after a manipulated pump; or some other time the team believes is most opportune to take the money and run. Giza: Giza marketed itself as a platform within which different cryptocurrencies could be stored securely. But after raising $2.4 million in one month, the team deleted the website and stopped replying to emails. Investors were duped by a very convincing whitepaper, and actors had been hired to appear in photographs promoting the project. No investor funds have ever been recovered. Centra: The SEC put an end to fundraising for the Centra ICO and charged the founders Robert Farkas and Sohrab Sharma with orchestrating a fraudulent ICO after they raised $32 million USD. They were promoting the ability to develop financial products backed by VISA and Mastercard, though it was later found that neither partnership was real. One of the major red flags in the Centra project was the use of celebrity endorsements for publicity, reportedly paying champion boxer Floyd Mayweather a significant sum to promote their project. Who wants to leave their Blockchain investment decisions up to Floyd Mayweather, regardless of his unbelievable skill as a boxer and regardless of his own financial success? He should still not influence where you invest your money!
Ponzi Schemes: Bitconnect: This is the most infamous Ponzi scheme in the history of cryptocurrency, and certainly the most damaging. Bitconnect was a Bitcoin-based project that rose to an all-time high of $463 per token on the back of a fictitious trading bot. The Bitconnect scam operated by paying dividends to users, proportional to the number of tokens they held and the number of referrals they made. The BCC tokens were exchanged for the users’ Bitcoin, and the highly sophisticated and wildly successful trading bot would trade BTC for them and distribute profits as dividends. The value of the dividends offered was approximately 1% of the initial investment per day. In other words, that is approximately 3,780% per year in cumulative gain! The referral system was capitalized upon most heavily by many of the biggest crypto YouTube channels, including CryptoNick and Trevon James, both of whom are now under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Shortly after the Bitconnect Token reached its all-time high, they received cease and desist orders from the security regulators of Texas and North Carolina, which caused the owners of the Bitconnect exchange to shut down operations, and the price to plummet.
Davorcoin: Davorcoin was a lending platform very similar to Bitconnect. And Davorcoin was farcically promoted by the same Trevon James crypto Youtuber who promoted Bitconnect, and is currently under investigation by the FBI for promoting Ponzi schemes. The Texas State Securities Board, in likening Davor to Bitconnect, stated that “DavorCoin is telling investors they can earn lucrative profits by investing in a lending program based on a new cryptocurrency known as davorcoin. Investors allegedly purchase davorcoin and then lend it to DavorCoin”. Davorcoin promptly plunged from an all-time high of $180 to very close to zero after a cease and desist order was made against them on the 2nd of February 2018. Useless Ethereum Token: Despite brazenly stating in the name of the project that the token has no use, the UET managed to raise $340,000 in its crowdsale, and saw a significant pump of over 300% on the HitBTC exchange in February of 2018. The scam was an obvious case of pump and dump, with the total trading volume for UET crashing back down to as low as $3 per day, after reaching as high as $350,000 per day during the pump.
It is currently an unfortunate consequence of the decentralized nature of cryptocurrency, but there is a distinct lack of recourse for scammed investors. It is wise to become as well-acquainted with the various indicators of good and bad ICOs as you possibly can. In weighing the factors that will allow you to avoid expensive mistakes, ask yourself in whose favor are the terms of the ICO slanted, yours or the teams? To what extent are you actually likely to profit from this investment? Cryptocurrency is inherently a grey area, whether you are investing in it or not. Investing is another inherently grey area, no matter what the area or object of investing might be. Laws and regulations are not always able to keep up. Trying to define and prove what was or was not a scam is not likely to be as simple as the scammed investor would want it to be. A project can be set up in certain ways to avoid being technically classified or provable as a scam, but the unprepared investor can still be burnt or scammed just as badly. Now we look at more individual indicators that can help you form a valid impression whether or not an ICO or even a fully-fledged exchange-listed coin is a scam or a bona fide investment opportunity.
Common Signposts
Contrasting Scam & Legitimate Projects
Presale Bonus/Token Release If the ICO allots massive bonuses to team members, you may leave yourself open to getting dumped on by presale investors if you buy when the project tokens are listed on an exchange. Likewise, if the project has a short lock-up period for developers and founders, you run the risk of them selling as soon as the token is listed on a major exchange. The token release schedule for the founders of a worthwhile project should show long-term team commitment to that project. The Jibrel Network team tokens will be locked up for 5 years before release, and they had no early investor bonus in the main sale. Both of these factors instilled confidence in the JNT ICO investors, and the tokens were sold out weeks before the ICO was due to end. No Presale lock up If Presale investor tokens are not locked up at all for any period after listing, that could easily be a set up for an exit scam after the initial listing. No presale lockup for early investor tokens is a crystal clear warning, the project may be fatally rigged toward those in the inner circle, with little commitment to the long term health or success of that project.
Unsolicited Offers or Unasked for Additions to Groups Characters running scam projects will often add you to Telegram groups out of the blue or send you unsolicited emails with information about their project. Telegram is the most widely used messaging app in the cryptocurrency community and you should familiarize yourself with it to keep yourself in the loop for specific projects in which you invest as well as all kinds of other relevant crypto info. You can adjust the settings on the Telegram app to disallow anonymous additions to cryptocurrency projects if you find yourself bombarded with offers by scammers. Reputable projects at the ICO stage will spread by word of mouth, or by eloquent and meaningful articles posted on their Medium page. A project with serious potential does not need to actively seek participants for their ICO like that. They will often be able to fill their ICO hard cap in a matter of hours, or even just minutes!
Anonymous Team
Alarm bells, again, immediately, if the project has minimal online presence. The individual team members could be mere fabrications. The entire project could be a farce by utterly inexperienced characters. What if the project leaders are simply unaware of the importance of a strong social media profile? That in itself would be too strange to ignore. Top-level projects will have team members with experience in crypto and the LinkedIn accounts for those members will be easily accessible right there on the project website. You should be able to easily see and evaluate each individual’s experience in their field and ascertain what they bring to the project team. Bitconnect’s anonymous team should have been the only deterrent prospective investors needed to discourage them from putting money into that doomed project. Ethhorse, a current project with anonymous founders and operators should be steered clear of at all costs for the same reasons.
Community Atmosphere
The subreddits or Telegram groups of scam projects will often feature moderators that do not allow any kind of criticism in the group chat. If, in the process of your due diligence, you encounter didactic admins that only wish to silence your questioning of certain aspects of the whitepaper or mechanism of the tokenomics
, you should be concerned. Similarly if you see a coherent critical reply attacked by many different users who refuse to engage the substance of the point being made, that may be a subreddit infested with bots. Projects that have nothing to hide will allow free debate in the chat. Ideally, they hope to develop a positive community that is itself an asset to the long-term success and overall strength of the project. Good projects do not need to automatically brand all criticism as Fear Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD).
Whitepaper
One common tactic of scammers is to produce a whitepaper that uses too many buzzwords, and deliberately obfuscates and overcomplicates the explanation of the problem and/or its solution. A good whitepaper clearly and concisely lays out the problem and answer, as well as provides compelling arguments why a Blockchain solution is preferable to the current solution. Another point of concern is a whitepaper that gives unrealistic time frames and goals. Bitconnect’s almost comically optimistic profit projections are a prime example of this, as are the 1,354% yearly gains promised by Plexcoin. Respectable projects will set out development timescales in terms of quarters or years, rather than offering immediate profit projections, which are simply a red flag.
Advisors/Connections in the Cryptoworld
The most prestigious projects will already have partnerships made before the ICO stage, and the worst ones, i.e. the scams, will not mention any such partnerships. Icon (ICX) for example was spawned from a South Korean project named The Loop, a collaboration between 3 Korean universities and the DAYLIFinancial Group. They boasted an advisory panel consisting of the legendary investor Don Tapscott, Jehan Chu and crowdfunding expert Jason Best. On top of a solid team of advisors, good projects will also be visible at major Blockchain events such as the Consensus, and the World Blockchain Forum, etc. Scam projects will be unable to inspire this same level in confidence. As an investor, you should sense a certain presence and expect a certain feeling of trust that should guide you in your investments. After all, it is actually a people-to-people thing you are doing.
Key Stress points upon the Timeline to Identify Scam Projects Post Whitepaper Release The period in the immediate aftermath of the release of the whitepaper can also be decisive in establishing the validity of a project. How a team copes with the roadmap that they have laid out for themselves is key. Valuable insight into the operational efficiency and commitment to the project can be gleaned from the quality of and amount of code committed to GitHub. If you have any experience in computer programming you can see how clean and orderly the code is, which gives insight into the skill of the developers, and in turn the quality of project leaders’ decision-making in hiring team members. Scam projects will have little or no code committed to GitHub, or at best it will be copied and pasted from other projects just to cover their tracks. Start of ICO Sometimes, a scam project, or other project in which you would be better off not investing, will change the terms of the ICO just before the ICO starts. The Key (TKY) ICO doubled the price of tokens on the day before the ICO was due to take place, because the price of NEO had risen so drastically. Currently, the TKY token price is still only half of its ICO price. Initial investors are faced with the prospect of a 50% loss on their investment.
Exchange Listing
Some particularly greedy scammers will create a scam project with the intent of selling tokens in the ICO for BTC and ETH, and then pumping and dumping their share of the tokens immediately after listing. The team of fraudsters behind Monero Gold used this method after the crowdfunding of their useless ERC-20 token. After listing on CoinExchange.io, the team dumped their tokens until the exchange finally ceased trading. Although it is not uncommon for ICO tokens to sold after listing (just like can happen with shares of stock after an IPO), if the price does not stabilize and massive sell walls are continually placed, a scam is likely taking place and the token is being dumped.
Fake Ethereum Twitter giveaway
You may have noticed Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin’s twitter handle has been changed to Vitalik “Not giving away Eth” Buterin in recent months. This is because a group of devious scammers had created fake accounts with almost exact replicas of his profile (deviating by only one character). The fake accounts promised to deposit 1 whole ETH for every 0.1 ETH the potential sucker deposited into the wallet address provided by the scammer. These fake account “Ether giveaway” scam tweets were set up to be sent in just a matter of seconds after the real person tweeted, and usually always appear immediately after the tweet of the real public figure. Fake bot profiles then came into play, thanking the fake Vitalik, or fake Elon Musk, for holding up their end of the bargain and depositing the ETH as promised. One scammer, or group of scammers, managed to fill a wallet up with almost $20 thousand worth of ETH, which they transferred out, never to be seen or heard from again.
Effect of Scam Customers, Upon the Affected Parties
Of course, this is no fun for the targeted public figure either. They need to take steps to avoid being targeted again. This will mean changing their handle, their username, or making their accounts private. However, the injured party with whom we are most concerned is the unfortunate scammed social media user, who has no chance whatsoever of getting his or her funds back, ever. It is a harsh lesson to learn. But it is a fact of crypto reality. Nearly every one that trades crypto will at least be exposed to frauds or scams in one way or another. In this case, we think it is better to learn about scams by studying them, rather than learn from your own unfortunate and expensive experience. In the case of Mr. Buterin, these incidents were awful public relations for the Ethereum project. It had only been a few years since cryptocurrency as a whole was primarily associated with criminality and seedy transactions on the Darkweb. Any connection with unscrupulous behavior is best avoided at all costs. Negative associations could have been particularly damaging for Ethereum’s brand because the vast majority of ICO fraud is committed using the ERC-20 token as the template for the scam tokens.
Any and all the scamming or fraudulent behavior in the cryptocurrency ecosystem is bound to have a negative impact on the speed at which mainstream uptake finally takes place. Cryptocurrencies, as an emerging asset class, will be painted in the worst possible light. Crypto is aiming to, and is in fact in the process of, causing great disruption in traditional centralized finance and business. Mainstream media organizations are also part of that traditional centralized economy. Press coverage will be damning. Something is happening here, but Mr. Jones doesn’t know what it is.
Legal Recourse for Scams
We clearly understand, there is a possibility of being scammed. We know the scams are happening. The SEC has made some arrests and actually charged people for operating fraudulent ICOs. But it is a struggle to deal with the flood of ICOs coming from anywhere at any time. The SEC filed charges against two founders of a purported financial services startup for orchestrating a fraudulent ICO that raised more than $32million from thousands of investors. As you know from the ICOs we have covered so far, the lack of regulation allows for direct contact and dealing between the entrepreneurs, business owners and potential investors. While we believe this is a blessing according to the founding principles of Bitcoin and other alternate Cryptocurrencies, because it frees us from traditional roadblocks, middle-men, and all kinds of time-consuming procedures; it also leaves investors in a place where there is often little to no hope of ever recovering funds lost in fraudulent schemes.
Actions after a Successful ICO
Good post-ICO practice is characterized by stringent security, well thought-out legal strategy and clear communication. Many projects have paid the price in damage to their reputation for failing to adequately guard customer information, leaving themselves open to phishing attacks by fraudsters. Investors in the Enigma project had half a million dollars stolen from them; and a whopping $8.4 million was defrauded from investors in Veritaseum via phishing attacks. After a successful token distribution, the team’s main focus is initially on switching the enterprise from one primarily focused on fundraising, to superficially at least, a fully-fledged, functioning business. This involves removing most of the token sale-related content from their main webpage, sending newsletters to all successful ICO participants, and sending refunds to those who may have missed the deadline or the hardcap. Then, with the stressful and complicated fundraising stage finally concluded, a portion of the funds raised can be assigned to fuel the growth of the project community. This can involve hiring community managers, forum admins, and social media managers to outsource the job of keeping investors in the loop. The founders can focus on growth strategy and product development. The cultivation of a thriving and energetic community is extremely important. The community will give you free marketing for your product and your business. Community members who believe in the project, and are engaged by professional moderators, can give you very effective promotion to other prospective investors. Communication with community members is a great way to test ideas and gauge sentiment related to various aspects of your project.
The project leads must set aside adequate funds for lawyers. The project will need to address potential future or imminent problems with regulators, at the very least. The transition from fundraising project to full-fledged business can be incredibly challenging, and even more stressful than the ICO itself. The main thing to remember is that your pre-sale and ICO investors are not just silent investors waiting for a return. They are the early adopters of your solution, of your product; they are the community and promoters of your project; and they are the individuals with a vested interest in the financial success of your venture. The ICO environment is not as heavily regulated, so quarterly and/or semi-annual reporting is not required the way it is in the traditional world. That means your own style of effective communication about the progress and key developments on your project matters even more. In the ICO world, you communicate with your press releases, social media, and Medium posts. You also communicate by the very nature of your relations with your exchange, and relationships with your cornerstone investors. Effective communication and good business relationships can play a prominent role in the success or failure of your venture (by token liquidity and valuation).
If your investors start to lose interest, and stop trading your token on the exchange, liquidity will dry up and cause increasingly volatile price swings. You need to keep certain things in mind, and follow effective practices to maintain a happy and motivated community.
Social Media & Medium
In addition to your website, your social media & Medium blog most likely formed a significant part of your ICO preparations. Your purpose pivots after the ICO from one of promotion to one of communication. Consistent, informative and material Medium blogs, also Facebook and Twitter updates, ensure that investors remain engaged and well-informed of what the company is up to. Frequent activity in this space makes investors feel much more comfortable. You can foster a kind of organic community expansion that is consistently advertising your project to potential new members.
Cornerstone Investors & Exchanges
As we mentioned, your relationship with investors in the ICO world is different from that of the traditional silent IPO minority equity partners. Consistent, Transparent & Honest communication is incredibly important here. Even if an ICO is struggling to overcome a problem or whatever issues are occurring, honest communication from the team is key to business survival. You should think of and treat your exchange like a business partner too, a very important one at that. Exchanges provide liquidity for you and your investors. That liquidity is like the blood for your business. Many top exchanges demand nothing less than absolute honesty and integrity, it is imperative to maintain strong and comfortable relationships with exchanges. Everything we have said so far, also applies to your Telegram channel and forums too. These give you another great opportunity to build a thriving community. Team members and investors can enjoy lively debates in their Telegram channels. This can be constructive discussion, or critical commentary too. But it is always valuable as a direct link between the team and the community. It is always good to know how people are feeling and what they expect from you and your project. You are able to use your Telegram channel and forums to consistently adapt your marketing and communication strategy. Keep your investors as happy and comfortable as possible, and you will be more likely to attract new investors and allocations. Other forums around the internet operate more or less in the same manner as Telegram.
After a successful funding round with the hardcap reached and time to spare, legal counsel has been secured, and the community is flourishing, the team will prepare for their first listing by paying the exchange fee and waiting for the announcement by the exchange. Unless they are willing to pay exorbitant fees for an immediate listing on Binance for example, teams will usually settle for an initial listing on a second-tier exchange. The fee charged by an exchange depends on many different factors that we will cover in more detail in the next section.
ICO Company actions after a Successful ICO
Real World Case Study
The Basic Attention Token (BAT) project, when used in conjunction with the Brave Browser, allows users to pay micro-fees in BAT to their most-used sites. The idea was conceived by Brendan Eich, the inventor of Javascipt and former CEO of Mozilla Firefox. Investors absolutely pounced on it at ICO and the project raised an amazing $35million in under 30 seconds. The BAT/Brave project has delivered on time on nearly all of its targets, helped in no small part by having a working product, the Brave Browser, for over a year before the token launch. The project secured a listing on the premier exchange, Binance, in November 2017.
A project can suffer through a disappointing funding phase and, for example, fail to reach 75% of its hardcap. The team will be only partially funded. Though they may be able to initiate the project, the value proposition of the token has been compromised, potentially forever. The market has spoken. There is limited faith in the team’s ability to complete or carry out their project. Failure to reach a hardcap is a serious obstacle on the project road map. This will mean massive revisions to the timescales for development and listing. Such a project may have to be content listing on decentralized exchanges for a period of time and they will lose any post-ICO hype that could have helped the project price to “moon” early on. There is less money to be allocated. Each section of the business will be underfunded compared to the original plan. There can be delays in code development, exchange listing, marketing and community development as well.
Calling the Tezos ICO a disappointment might seem strange considering they raised over $232million. But this open-source, smart contracts fintech platform became a victim of its own success post-ICO by devolving into multiple class-action lawsuits between the founders and its foundation chairman. They suffered from a distinct lack of clearly defined roles and expectations on key positions. There was infighting at the boardroom level. This all caused an as yet unresolved delay in listing and development. This is also one example why a capped ICO can be more desirable for investors than an uncapped ICO. If the team have a set amount of capital to work with, an amount that isn’t absolutely ridiculous, like in the case of Tezos, perhaps the resultant greed and discord is less likely. Although it may not be so easy for speculative investors to make a profit from an uncapped ICO with such a massive initial market cap, it is a very impressive feat of fundraising nonetheless. Tezos’s post ICO market cap of $232million is already 64th of all projects, and would have to perform brilliantly on listing to maintain this position.
Company actions after a Failed ICO
Failed ICOs can mean either fundraising initiatives that have failed to reach the softcap and will therefore not be economically viable, or fraudulent projects whose sole intention was to steal from investors and do an exit scam. We’ve already covered scams and fraud projects in detail, but what happens when an ICO just fails to raise the requisite funds? Projects that are legitimate, with honest founders and developers, refund the ETH or BTC deposited by investors as quickly as possible if the softcap is not reached. The same process that is followed by ICOs that are oversubscribed is employed by those that have failed to raise enough capital. The process of returning funds back to the sender ideally should take a period of days, but more likely will take a few weeks. The Sappy Network, advised by Dan Tapscott, failed to come anywhere near to their funding goals. They are currently in the process of sending all investor funds back to the wallets from which they came. The statement from the founders read as a textbook example of how you should react to failure with the founder stating “In the spirit of transparency and honesty, we are sharing with the community that we did not reach the soft cap, and thus we will be honoring our terms and conditions and returning the Ethers to all contributors”
Exchange Listing
A bottleneck developed in the ICO market after the explosion of crypto prices in 2017. There was a massive increase of ICO teams on all stages along the pathway from start-up to fully listed crypto asset. Certainly, a huge part of the value proposition for both the token and the project depends on securing a listing on an exchange. It is precisely the liquidity of the token as a valuable asset on a free market exchange, that determines or even defines its value. The liquidity is what makes tokens attractive to investors, but that liquidity simply does not exist without a platform for the exchange. Unfortunately for new projects, the balance of power is heavily weighted in favor of large centralized exchanges that can pick and choose which tokens to list, and the timescale within which listing will occur. Each large exchange has its own list of pros and cons as well as its own specific procedure for coin/token listing. They also have their own particular ethos regarding the type of projects they prefer to list. ERC-20 tokens will be available for trade immediately on decentralized exchanges (IDEX Forkdelta) but those platforms are generally quite low volume, and certainly not a long term solution. Projects must often pay huge fees to be listed on the larger centralized exchanges. At first those fees will be prohibitive. The usual route is to initially list on a more reasonably priced smaller exchange like Kucoin or Gate.io.
Listing Process
Major centralized exchanges have the power to list anything they want, and they also each have a unique structure that projects must adhere to if they wish to be listed. Each potential new listing will undergo a rigorous examination by the exchange operators to test the feasibility for listing the token. An exchange will likely have forms available on its website that you can fill out to give them all the necessary initial information. If a particular project and token qualify for listing, the team will invariably be put under a NDA, Non-Disclosure Agreement, to avoid any insider trading or other regulatory problem
s. In the case of larger exchanges like Binance, there is a period within which owners of a newly listed coin or token can transfer them to the exchange in preparation for trading. This is a fantastic opportunity for traders to make use of the likely pump that occurs after a new token is listed on a large exchange. It is common to see up to 100% increases on the first day of trading, and a subsequent dump of up to 50% or more can follow. This allows traders holding the coin already, to sell for a good profit, and maybe buy back in at a much lower price too, if they think that is a good idea.
Exchange Fees
There are no definitive figures available to the public regarding fees that major exchanges charge new projects to list. Binance, Bitfinex, Kraken and Bittrex have all been quoted as saying that they do not charge any fee at all but this is almost definitely untrue. Knowledgeable industry insiders estimate between $500,000 and $1,000,000 USD for listing on a top-tier exchange. (There have been more rumors of 7 figure exchange listing fees since January 2018 too). This figure will vary greatly from project to project. Various factors can affect how an exchange determines the fee for a particular project. These are some of the most important ones: Market Maker Service Required Whether or not the client project requires liquidity services directly from the exchange, or can connect proprietary ones via API, will lead to a huge reduction in listing cost.
Type of Token (ERC-20 NEP-5 or DAG) Not all tokens are created equal in the listing process. ERC-20 tokens and BTC based tokens have code architecture that will almost certainly be preferred by the exchange. NEO based tokens (NEP-5) such as Ontology will be far most costly to integrate because separate new wallets have to be built to facilitate NEO transactions. The costs involved in integrating Direct Acyclic Graph projects such as Nano into the exchange structure are even worse. Expected Daily Volume Exchanges derive their profits largely from transaction fees and withdrawal fees. The trading volume a new token is likely to bring in will have a great influence on the computation of the exchange listing fee. Exchange Listing Procedures Evaluation Different exchanges have different rules for new listings. A new project must of course abide by specific rules for that exchange before they are allowed to list there. There are procedures that must generally be followed for the most noteworthy exchanges. You can get a good idea of the hurdles to be overcome before listing can take place.
Ongoing relationship with Exchanges
Exchanges, usually Huobi or Kucoin, will sometimes make it essential for newly listed tokens to engage in “trading competitions” after listing. Competitions can last between 2 weeks, or a month or more, aiming to increase the trading volume for that token, thereby increasing trading fees collected by the exchange, and giving the project extra publicity too. The whales may have made a nice profit already and be very happy about it; but the project token can still get stuck in a long period of stagnation and a loss of post-ICO hype. Once a coin or token has been successfully registered for trading on a particular exchange, the project must focus on maintaining regulatory compliance and paying things like annual maintenance fees too. Exchanges can investigate and delist coins or tokens to see if they have fallen below a certain standard set by the exchange. The exchange is concerned about such things as: an extended period with an extremely low volume; a team member connection to an exit scam; or other such immoral/illegal behavior.
Post ICO Company Evaluation
After a presumably successful ICO, the necessary funds have been obtained, and the real business, the real team challenge is now, to bring the project to life as a bona fide disruptive Blockchain endeavor! The core advantage of the ICO method of funding business startups is the lack of regulatory hurdles to navigate with regards to fundraising and fund allocation. The funds that have been raised have, in effect, been freely given to the project leads to do with what they will in a no-strings-attached transaction. Of course, there are still strings attached in that the team are tasked with making that money grow for the investors. But there is no regulatory oversight of the process. The regulatory freedom is a double edge sword. It gives a good team freedom to work however they want; and it also allows for unscrupulous thieves to use the ICO process to defraud investors of their ETH and BTC.
Advantages of being Post ICO From Investor Perspective
You should have little to fear in terms of fraud from a project in which you have invested, if you have done your due diligence correctly. You can expect the tokens to be distributed, and the exchange listing to take place as expected. And you know your project is totally legitimate. There are different ways to think about your ICO tokens after the crowd sale has concluded. If you are a speculative investor looking for a quick flip, you can gauge the correct moment and sell anytime you like, assuming the ICO has been well-received by the markets.
From Team Perspective
The post-ICO period is, from the point of view of the team, a period where stress and responsibility for the safety of investor funds is passed, in the form of ICO tokens, from the team to the investors themselves. This responsibility for tokens is replaced with the stress of building the actual company itself, and succeeding in the business as planned. A small portion of the responsibility for the project’s success is also passed on to the exchange that has listed the tokens. This is especially true if market makers have been employed by the team or the exchange to provide liquidity. After the ICO has concluded, all funds are released to the project team immediately, so they can start building their business brand, and tackling each step on the road map right away. The freedom with which startups can operate is one of the main reasons behind the explosion in Blockchain businesses in 2017. With the ICO funds safe, and money being put to work on various areas essential to the growth of the project, and the tokens already distributed to investors, the risk of fraud is greatly diminished. If KYC and Anti-money Laundering procedures have been followed correctly during the ICO phase, the risk of phishing attacks and theft will also be marginal now. At any rate, with tokens safely delivered to all participants, the responsibility has passed from the team to the investor.
From Team Perspective
The release of all funds and the freedom to allocate them with no supervision, as cited above, is certainly a tremendous advantage empowering the team to fulfil the entire breadth of their vision unimpeded. But it does have its drawbacks. If there is a mistake made in the allocation of funds, or an unforeseen problem arises, there is nowhere to turn to, and no means of generating further money via crowdfunding. The ICO is over; it is finished. The project simply has to work with what it has. Your community can sometimes turn against you when the market is going down. Times like that just add to the already intense pressure of presiding over a startup Blockchain business.
Solution: DAICO
The DAICO, or Decentralized Autonomous Organization Initial Coin Offering, is a means to integrate a more specific, rigorous and regimented smart contract schedule into the ICO process. Doing so will eliminate fraudulent ICOs, exit scams, pump and dumps, and many of the other disadvantages listed above. The DAICO method, proposed by Ethereum creator, Vitalik Buterin, will merge the core concepts of both an ICO and a DAO to leverage the most relevant features of both, in order to solve the main problems in the ICO method. For example, to eliminate the risk of an exit scam, the release of funds will be spread out over a period of time, with the next allotment only being released when a certain set of parameters are met.
Buterin explains that the DAICO method will provide user protection in a manner not present in the current ICO model, ensuring funds are not misspent or used in any way contrary to the intention of investors. In simpler terms the DAICO will operate as follows: The DAICO will start with a smart contract by its executors that can set whether this is to be a capped or uncapped round of fundraising (amongst many other options) as well as including KYC requirements. After these settings have been configured, the DAICO is set into “contribution mode” and presented to the public. This stage will function identically to a normal ICO with ETH exchanged for project tokens. Once the funding period has elapsed, or the hardcap has been met, investors will have the ability to set the “tap” for the collected funds. This will set the amount per second, or amount per minute, that will be available to the executor to develop that specific portion of the project to which those funds have been assigned. If investors believe at any point that the team is misspending funds or otherwise wasting time, etc., the investors have significant options to take. Of course they could choose to release more funds to the team. But, they could also stop the tap altogether, and stop the entire ICO, by voting, and actually release all unused funds back to their own wallets from which the investment had first been made!

Navigating Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP: How Google Is Quietly Making Blockchains Searchable

Navigating Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP: How Google Is Quietly Making Blockchains Searchable
It’s a balmy 80 degrees on a mid-December day in Singapore, and something is puzzling Allen Day, a 41-year-old data scientist. Using the tools he has developed at Google, he can see a mysterious concerted usage of artificial intelligence on the blockchain for Ethereum. Ether is the world’s third-largest cryptocurrency (after bitcoin and XRP), and it still sports a market cap of some $11 billion despite losing 83% of its value in 2018. Peering into its blockchain—the distributed database of transactions underpinning the cryptocurrency—Day detects a “whole bunch” of “autonomous agents” moving funds around “in an automated fashion.” While he doesn’t yet know who has created the AI, he suspects they could be the agents of cryptocurrency exchanges trading among themselves in order to artificially inflate ether’s price.
“It’s not really just single agents doing things on their own,” Day says from Google’s Asia-Pacific headquarters. “They’re forming with other agents to have some larger group effect.”
Day’s official title is senior developer advocate for Google Cloud, but he describes his role as “customer zero” for the company’s cloud computing efforts. As such it’s his job to anticipate demand before a product even exists, and he thinks making the blockchain more accessible is the next big thing. Just as Google enabled (and ultimately profited) from making the internet more usable 20 years ago, its next billions may come from shining a bright light on blockchains. If Day is successful, the world will know whether blockchain’s real usage is living up to its hype.
Danish researcher Thomas Silkjaer is using Google's BigQuery to map publicly available information about XRP cryptocurrency addresses. The craters represent some of cryptocurrency's largest exchanges.
Last year Day and a small team of open-source developers quietly began loading data for the entire Bitcoin and Ethereum blockchains into Google’s big-data analytics platform, BigQuery. Then, with the help of lead developer Evgeny Medvedev, he created a suite of sophisticated software to search the data.
In spite of a total lack of publicity, word of the project spread quickly among crypto-minded coders. In the past year, more than 500 projects were created using the new tools, trying to do everything from predicting the price of bitcoin to analyzing wealth disparity among ether holders.
When it comes to cloud computing, Google is far behind Amazon and Microsoft. Last year Google pocketed an estimated $3 billion in revenue from cloud ser­vices. Amazon and Microsoft, meanwhile, generated about $27 billion and $10 billion, respectively.
Day is hoping that his project, known as Blockchain ETL (extract, transform, load), will help even the playing field. But even here Google is trying to catch up. Amazon entered blockchain in a big way in 2018 with a suite of tools for building and managing distributed ledgers. Microsoft got into the space in 2015, when it released tools for Ethereum’s blockchain. It now hosts a range of services as part of its Azure Blockchain Workbench. But while Amazon and Microsoft are focusing on making it easier to build blockchain apps, Day is focusing on exposing how blockchains are actually being used, and by whom.
“In the future, moving more economic activity on chain won’t just require a consensus level of trust,” says Day, referring to the core validating mechanism of blockchain technology. “It will require having some trust in knowing about who it is you’re actually interacting with.” In other words, if blockchain is to go mainstream, some of its beloved anonymity features will have to be abandoned.
A native of Placer County, California, Day got his first computer at the age of 5 and a few years later started writing simple programs. A fascination with volcanoes and dinosaurs turned his interest to life sciences, and he ultimately graduated from the University of Oregon with a dual degree in biology and Mandarin in 2000. From there he headed to UCLA to pursue a doctorate in human genetics and helped build a computer program to browse the genome.
It was at UCLA where Day began relying on distributed computing, a concept that is core to blockchains, which store their data on a large network of individual computers. In the early 2000s Day needed to analyze the massive amounts of data that make up the human genome. To solve this problem he hooked many small computers together, vastly increasing their power.
“Distributed-systems technology has been in my tool kit for a while,” Day says. “I could see there were interesting characteristics of blockchains that could run a global supercomputer.”
Hired in 2016 to work in the health and bio­informatics areas of Google, Day segued to blockchains, the hottest distributed-computing effort on the planet. But the talents he had honed—sequencing genomes for infectious diseases in real time and using AI to increase rice yields—were not easily applied to decoding blockchain.
Before Day and Medvedev released their tools, just searching a blockchain required specialized software called “block explorers,” which let users hunt only for specific transactions, each labeled with a unique tangle of 26-plus alphanumeric characters. Google’s Blockchain ETL, by contrast, lets users make more generalized searches of entire ecosystems of transactions.
To demonstrate how customers could use Blockchain ETL to make improvements to the crypto economy, Day has used his tools to examine the so-called hard fork, or an irrevocable split in a blockchain database, that created a new cryptocurrency—bitcoin cash—from bitcoin in the summer of 2017.

This particular split was the result of a Hatfield and McCoy “war” within the bitcoin community between a group who wanted to leave bitcoin as it was and another who wanted to develop a currency that, like cash, was cheaper and faster to use for small payments. Using Google’s BigQuery, Day discovered that bitcoin cash, rather than increasing so-called micro-transactions, as the defecting developers claimed, was actually being hoarded among big holders of bitcoin cash. “I’m very interested to quantify what’s happening so that we can see where the legitimate use cases are for blockchain,” Day says. “Then we can move to the next use case and develop out what these technologies are really appropriate for.”
Day’s work is inspiring others. Tomasz Kolinko is a Warsaw-based programmer and the creator of a service that analyzes smart contracts, a feature of certain blockchains that is designed to transparently enforce contractual obligations like collateralized loans but with less reliance on third parties, like lawyers. Kolinko was frustrated with his blockchain queries.
In December, Kolinko met Day at a hackathon in Singapore. Within a month of the meeting, Kolinko was using Google’s tools to search for a smart contract feature called a “selfdestruct,” designed to limit a contract’s life span. Using his own software in conjunction with Day’s, Kolinko took 23 seconds to search 1.2 million smart contracts—something that would have taken hours before. The result: Almost 700 of them had left open a selfdestruct feature that would let anyone instantly kill the smart contract, whether that person was authorized or not. “In the past you couldn’t just easily check all the contracts that were using it,” Kolinko says. “This tool is both the most scary and most inspiring I’ve ever built.”
Day is now expanding beyond bitcoin and ethereum. Litecoin, zcash, dash, bitcoin cash, ethereum classic and dogecoin are being added to BigQuery. Independent developers are loading their own crypto data sets on Google. Last August, a Dutch developer named Wietse Wind uploaded the entire 400 gigabytes of transaction data from Ripple’s XRP blockchain, another popular cryptocurrency, into BigQuery. Wind’s data, which he updates every 15 minutes, prompted a Danish designer named Thomas Silkjaer to create a heat map of crypto flows. The resulting colorful orb reveals at a glance more than a million crypto wallets, including big ex­changes like Binance and London’s crypto debit card startup Wirex, which are neck deep in XRP transactions.
“Google has been a bit of a sleeping giant in blockchain,” says BlockApps CEO Kieren James-Lubin, who is partnering with Google to sell enterprise blockchain apps. In addition to Day’s work, Google has filed numerous patents related to the blockchain, including one in 2018 to use a “lattice” of interoperating blockchains to increase security, a big deal in a world where untold millions of crypto have been stolen by hackers. The company is also pushing its developers to build apps on the Ethereum blockchain, and Google’s venture arm, GV, has made a number of significant investments in crypto startups.
The giant, it seems, is waking up.

Log of AMA with Blockport.io - @Kai Bennink , @Sebastiaan Lichter, @Pascal, (Pascal van Stehen) and @Zowie Langdon

Disclaimer: ARK is regularly hosting Ask-me-Anything's of upcoming and promising cryptocurrency projects. Other than being the host, there is no relation between ARK and the featured cryptocurrency in this AMA. Keep in mind that ARK has no competitors - only future partners.
dr10 Let us all welcome the team from Blockport.io @Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport), @Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @Pascal (Marketing at Blockport) (Pascal van Stehen) and @Zowie Langdon (Chief technology of Blockport) (Zowie Langdon). You can all start asking them questions. I'd ask team from Blockport to use @ username to the one they are responding to and I'd like to ask all the community to give them some time to catch up if too many questions in backlog, before asking more so questions don't get lost. Thank you! (edited)
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) Hi everyone!
JayCrypto What is blockport
dr10 Welcome!
*lars * Welcome !
Pascal (Marketing at Blockport) Hey everyone!
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @JayCrypto Blockport is a hybrid-decentralized exchange with a strong focus on user-friendliness, social trading features and building a knowledge sharing community.
tranzer How is blockport different than other exchanges? Are you gonna offer fiat pairs?
Crasha What do you need a token for?
Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) Hey Crasha, good question, we use the Blockport token to create a micro-economy inside the Blockport exchange to incentivise experienced traders for sharing their knowledge and trading activities. In order to "govern" this micro-economy we therefore create our own token :slightly_smiling_face:
Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) Hey all
munich (Ark.Land Delegate) Welcome!
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @tranzer Blockport focuses on user-friendliness and simplicity. This means that anyone, beginner or advanced, can use the Blockport exchange without having any prior knowledge or experience with professional trading. Unlike other exchanges, Blockport is not just about trading. As a social platform, we implement social trading and knowledge sharing features in the core of our exchange. Additionally, we offer our members the best of both worlds by combining centralized trading with decentralized storing of crypto assets. For more technical information about the Blockport functional design, please read our white paper.
munich (Ark.Land Delegate) Will there be any fees for using Blockport?
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @munich (Ark.Land Delegate) yes, we handle fees. Since we're also connected with other exchanges we have to cover their fees as well. We work towards a decentralized way of trading so that fees become minimum.
pieface Hello and welcome
Blazeron how does the token have value?
*munich (Ark.Land Delegate) * Has the whitepaper been released? (edited)
Zowie Langdon (Chief technology of Blockport) @munich (Ark.Land Delegate) The whitepaper is indeed released and available here: https://blockport.io/read-the/whitepaper.pdf :slightly_smiling_face:
Spiros (Chief Design at Blockport) Hey everyone
ovsh @Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) As your previous background is comprised of an MBA internship and a 4 month startup that has no current available website right now (poolhere.com), what makes you confident you have the ability to deliver such a huge platform?
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) It's not just about me. We are a team with different capabilities. I have a strong network and social skills and built a great team around me. Having said that, I have also been a project manager at the biggest insurance platform in the netherlands where I was leading a team on conversational AI / chatbot technology.
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) Great question by the way:)
ovsh ^ pointy question, but this is an AMA
pieface Could you please define social features? Is it a platform which will allow you to add other traders as friends or "follow" them etc? Also, what's the method of connecting with other people you don't directly know?
pieface For example, i'm a lonely trader on your platform and want to socialise, how does that happen?
strengthbst2 Yes I don't understand how the social features would be useful.
*munich (Ark.Land Delegate) * Will your token be used as a way to get fee discounts? Like Binance and KuCoin
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @munich (Ark.Land Delegate) Yes, one of the utilities of the token, is to pay for discounted trading fees like Binance. The other utility is to pay for social trading features.
Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) @Crasha "Why do you need a token" Hey Crasha, good question, we use the Blockport token to create a micro-economy inside the Blockport exchange to incentivise experienced traders for sharing their knowledge and trading activities. In order to "govern" this micro-economy we need a token that we can control.
ovsh ^ @Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) Can you expand on the 'incentivise an experience trader' part? Assuming I'm an experienced trader, how would that work? And as most tokens are held right now as a form of investment, what prevents the token from being grubbled up to expect a price hike?
cam When's release goal?
Crasha So what will be the experience for these difference permutations of users? Experienced trader with many tokens Experienced trader with few tokens New trader with many tokens New trader with few tokens
Pascal (Marketing at Blockport) Hi @pieface, Blockport offers our members a professional platform where they can demonstrate their skills, and explain their strategies to the community. Social trading features consist of you being able to follow other traders and paying experienced traders to have a peek into their portfolio.
For more information on these features, check our recent post on Medium: https://medium.com/blockport/blockports-social-trading-features-b4fdb646dd43 (edited)
Zowie Langdon (Chief technology of Blockport) @cam Hi! You can find our roadmap on our website here: https://blockport.io/#home_route-map :slightly_smiling_face: Blockport The first social crypto exchange We are building a user-friendly crypto exchange that combines social trading with a hybrid-decentralized architecture to help people safely trade crypto assets. We bridge the gap between the crypto economy and the traditional world of finance to shift towards a digital and decentralized society.
Spiros (Chief Design at Blockport) :+1:
cam How is one considered experienced? Word of mouth? Paid via blockport tokens or preferred form of payment?
pieface thanks @Pascal (Marketing at Blockport)
Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) @ovsh Beginner traders can pay experienced traders Blockport tokens (BPT) to follow or copy their trading activities. In return, experienced traders can earn BPT to share their portfolio, knowledge and insights with beginners. This opens up a new stream of revenue for experienced traders, next to earning returns on trading. When it comes to people holding the token as an investment, we cannot prohibit this.
tranzer You also going to offer margin trading?
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @Crasha I don't know if I correctly understand your question. But experienced traders who perform well, will probably gain more of a following so that they will earn more BPT as a reward. Members who don't have a lot of BPT can earn them by gaining followers or sharing information or buy them in the Token Shop within the Blockport exchange.
KidCDN I like that idea personally!
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @tranzer That's not on our current roadmap, but we will not exclude it from future plans.
Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) @cam For every member we will track their performance based on certain indicators, such as: ROI in the past 6 months, amount of followers, etc. We have not defined these KPI's yet but it is definitely something we will develop in Q2/Q3 of 2018.
ceibaweb will I be able to buy Ark with fiat on Blockport
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @ceibaweb We are open to discuss the possibilities :slightly_smiling_face:
Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) @KidCDN Thanks! Could you explain why? :slightly_smiling_face:
tranzer Are you all from Netherlands? Have your own office or working from your homes ?
lars They are all working in my basement :trollark:
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @tranzer Yes, we're all from the Netherlands. Our HQ is located in TQ, which is a curated tech hub backed by Google and KPMG in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
arno @Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) will you accept USD deposits?
Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) @lars hahaha
KidCDN @Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) As someone who is pretty darn new in the world of cryptocurrency and looking to actually progress, having more successful traders' tips and portfolio to use as reference (not necessarily a copy as you want to make your own decisions so you don't blame anyone for potential losses) would be very appealing. I also know that some people would rather keep their successful methods to themselves, so having some form of compensation for sharing with others could be very appealing.
It also makes you want to study up, build a following and communicate with the community more frequently, because gaining followers is just generally beneficial and gaining tokens for doing so seems like a great added reward.
JayCrypto Can you share your teams tech experience
tranze How much you aim to raise? Must say kind of like this idea of hybrid exchange.
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @arno because we're located in the Netherlands we will start with accepting EUR, this is also due to our partnership with CardGate (payment provider). However, we will move forward to accepting creditcards and other currencies. Regulatory wise this is a challenge.
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @tranzer Great :slightly_smiling_face: the hardcap for the pre-sale is €1M and for the crowdsale it is €9M.
munich (Ark.Land Delegate) So you will accept credit cards right away? How do you plan to deal with possible chargebacks and fraud?
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @munich (Ark.Land Delegate) No we will not accept them right away. We will be moving forward as fast as possible to accept creditcards, exactly because of the chargebacks.
munich (Ark.Land Delegate) Ok, what about IDEA, SEPA transfers?
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @munich (Ark.Land Delegate) Yes, those we will accept :wink:
ovsh what is this 'referral code' on the pre-token sale form?
ovsh & is there a reason the design & UX language on blockport is very very similar to that of Coinbase?
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @ovsh We issue referral codes to community members who like to be ambassadors and wish to spread the news with their network. They will get a reward for referring people. If this interests you, you can join our community here and request one: https://t.me/blockport Telegram Blockport Community You can view and join @blockport right away.
ovsh Sounds cool! As a dev, how do I pitch in if I'm interested?
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @KidCDN Great to hear:)
Azek It doesn't seem exactly fair or open to have a private pre-sale and then a public pre sale. What is the reasoning for this, and why not just have a public token sale, in the spirit of being open and transparent.
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @ovsh You need to talk with our CTO :slightly_smiling_face: @Zowie Langdon (Chief technology of Blockport)
Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) @KidCDN Wauw, thanks for the elaborate feedback :slightly_smiling_face:
Zowie Langdon (Chief technology of Blockport) @JayCrypto Our technical team consists of people with a diverse set of expertise! I myself function as a lead engineer at my own company that specializes in web application development, and and I mainly work as an architect and Python developer and love to tinker in/around security related subjects and infrastructure management.
We also have an engineer, Laurens Profittlich in our team that is lead developer for a company that specializes in fraud detection, working for some of the largest banks in the Netherlands (including Rabobank).
Then there is Jan Bolhuis, Ethereum developer, experienced Audit & Security specialist and has worked for the Dutch Navy as an IT specialist.
Also, Erik Terpstra, who is founding engineer of Blendle, API specialist and early Bitcoin investotrader is part of our team.
Additionally we have an experienced Blockchain dev that is still currently working for a large BTC Merchant payment provider, he wishes to stay anonymous for now.
And then there is Bas du Pré, currently lead developer at ABN Amro, who is joining us to build our MVP!
Azek Sounds like an awesome team :slightly_smiling_face:
Spiros (Chief Design at Blockport) @ovsh Good questions; We made careful decisions on which elements to include and exclude form our platform. In the end we wanted to focus on simplicity of use. We came to a set of functionalities that we all agreed should cover the basic functions for beginner traders to be able to enter. These choices also gave us the ability to build on these functionalities for future additions with regards to experienced traders using our platform.
Indeed some functionalities resemble other trading platform but we strongly believe Blockport has a strong (Ux) identity and you will experience this for yourself when the time comes to have a full look at our platform including the trading platform and social features. These are all unique in feature and design.
ovsh One thing I'm worried about is the timeline. Q2-Q3 in 2018 crypto-land is roughly 500 light years in real time. Assuming a more 'relaxed' (increased) financial cap, what's your flexibility in ramping up development time?
Azek I had the same concern as you do ovsh when I read the timeline
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @Azek Everyone can signup for the pre-sale but participants have to purchase the minimum amount of BPT. In that sense, the pre-sale is publicly accessible to everyone, however, the public crowdsale starting 1st of March is more accessible for "the crowd" because of the lower minimum participation of 0.1 ETH. We are also in contact with some bigger players who requested a private sale, but we have gotten more attention than we'd expected so now the private also looks more like a public sale.
Azek Ah okay. That makes more sense.
Azek Got my +1 now :wink:
Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) We just (1 hour ago) launched our new website, do you guys have any feedback?
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @Azek Great! :slightly_smiling_face:
Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) www.blockport.io
Azek So the private one is one that you have to register for (and I think it costs 2.5 ETH) and the 'public' one is one that anyone can grab for only a min of .1 ETH
rootbark so your UI is designed for newbies to be user friendly but you have large private investors getting discounted undisclosed rates. Can you give us a breakdown of how many coins for the stages in your sale? (edited)
Zowie Langdon (Chief technology of Blockport) @ovsh @Azek Good question! And a valid concern. As a developer you can probably acknowledge that there is a certain maximum you reach in terms of development performance, especially when working on something that can be considered quite experimental (startup in crypto land). We are definitely aiming to increase our team capacity and thereby the speed with which we build Blockport, but we value stability of our platform and want to ensure proper delivery. Therefore we might be able to speed it up, but we don’t want make any promises that we might not be able to keep. As you know, big promises that may or may not be kept in the end are not scarce in crypto land :slightly_smiling_face:
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @Azek Exactly.
ovsh What's the status of the tech right now?
ovsh & more importantly, what's the "decentralized" component of the exchange itself?
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @rootbark We keep the amount for private investors relatively low (13% of the total tokensales amount). So that the private presale total token amount is 6.400.000 BPT and for the crowdsale it is 43.200.000 BPT. The biggest amount of all the BPT available is for the crowd. Also of all BPT ever being minted, 71,4% is going to the token sales.
dr10 OK, we are approaching the 60 minutes mark. Any last questions for Blockport team? Anything the team would like to add or tell - feel free to do.
rootbark im sorry if this was asked but where are you based?
mward @Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) so for the pre-sale we need to apply on the website and wait for mail
Spiros (Chief Design at Blockport) @rootbark Amsterdam - Netherlands
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @rootbark Sebastiaan Lichter @tranzer Yes, we're all from the Netherlands. Our HQ is located in TQ, which is a curated tech hub backed by Google and KPMG in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Posted in #trading_altcoinsToday at 7:22 PM
ovsh what's the "decentralized" component of the exchange itself?
mike any chance the platform will let you follow multiple traders, assign a weight to their porfolios, and combine them into a single displayed portfolio. also, have you heard of Marketocracy, ran a similar type of service without crypto a few years back?
Zowie Langdon (Chief technology of Blockport) @ovsh We have been experimenting with the necessary components needed for our MVP in Q1. Basically, our infrastructure is more or less defined and we have been able to hook up some components to assess feasibility of our roadmap. Now, we are focusing on getting our MVP in the air before January 2018 excluding the actual trading of crypto on the platform.
As for the decentralized part of the exchange we are currently looking into using an open-protocol such as Kyber Network, Polkadot or Loopring (0x is also a good option but they only offer ERC20 based tokens). We know that the decentralized protocols are hot, but can lack the needed performance. Therefore, we have not specified exactly what protocol we will work with for now, to allow for flexibility we might need.
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @mward That's correct, you will get a mail when the whitelisting process is live.
mward any eta?
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @mward In 2 weeks time
mward thanks
hemlck Sorry if this has been asked already, you say on your site that the user owns the private key to the Wallet. Does this mean it goes straight to your own wallet (the users wallet) or is it still held by you guys?
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @mike Yes we allow you to follow multiple traders and decide how much of your funds you wish to allocate to each of them. I haven't heard of Marketocracy, could you share a link?
mike https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marketocracy
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @mike thanks!
mike Marketocracy let you paper trade a portfolio, had contests for best performers, and used the best to run their own fund.
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) Thank you everyone for participating and asking us challenging and good questions:) If you're excited please feel free to join our telegram community: https://t.me/blockport and keep updated about our progress!
dr10 You might want to share your social media channels and more details on the crowdsale. :slightly_smiling_face:
dr10 Ah yeah :smile:
mike you could also choose to follow other traders. It was written on Ruby on Rails, know one of the devs who used to work there.
munich (Ark.Land Delegate) +1 for using Ark
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) The presale starts the 3rd of January! and our Crowdsale starts the 1st of March: )
Jan Bolhuis @ArkEcosystem; thank you for this 60 minute opportunity!
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @mike looks promising :slightly_smiling_face: thank you
Kai Bennink (Founder of Blockport) Thanks @dr10 and thanks everyone for you questions and feedback!:clapping:
dr10 Thank you Kai, Sebastiaan, Zowie, Spiros and Pascal for taking the time to do this AMA! All the best with the project and you are always welcome to hang around our Slack.
lars Thanks guys for your time!
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @dr10 Thank you dr10 for the support we really appreciate it:)
JohnnyD Sorry if it has been answered, but is there a reason why the presale is limited to 2 eth?
tranzer Good luck with project you guys look serious and interesting will keep an eye out
JohnnyD Or whatever the lmit was?
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @lars thank you !
lars And you guys can hang out ofcourse
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @JohnnyD it is not limited, it is a minimum. (2.5 ETH).
JohnnyD oh, right. Why there's a lower limit I meant. sorry
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @tranzer thank you for your support and great questions
mike thanks for presenting a very good project for crypto, look forward to it coming out.
Sebastiaan Lichter (Founder of Blockport) @JohnnyD its due to an other audience we're targeting than the crowdsale.
Zowie Langdon (Chief technology of Blockport) Thanks everyone for the questions, feedback and support! :smile:
JohnnyD um, ok
mike Ark ACES may be useful to you as it adds coins, and ArkVM and AIP11, the Ark Virtual Machine and upgraded tx protocol to support solidity contracts on ArkVM.
Pascal (Marketing at Blockport) Thanks for the interest everyone, see you on the moon :slightly_smiling_face:
