Gold Backed Crypto Exchange Offers Safe Haven for Crypto Investors

GOLD.IO Seeks to Develop Decentralised & Self-Regulating Community Exchange

Turbulence in the global markets is nothing new but the cryptocurrency community has faced an unprecedented 18-month period of flux.

The need for a fully decentralised, stable, self-regulated and community-led exchange that can offer investor confidence amidst a chaotic global economy has never been stronger.

Setting the Gold Standard with Crypto’s Founding Principles.

With a scalable inter-blockchain and decentralised exchange the GOLD.IO platform is not only self-regulated and led by its stakeholders, but asset linked – offering exchange investors unrivaled portfolio security.

Gold has always set the market standard and has benchmarked traditional finance for centuries, so why should the cryptocurrency market be any different?

As a commodity, it has weathered many a financial storm and continues to do so today. Aside from a little price volatility it has consistently retained its market value, and with an unstable geopolitical, crypto-economic outlook the precious metal can provide a safe port for crypto assets.

In short, a gold-linked and backed exchange offers not only security of your assets but a piece of mind – the world has been through tougher times than we face today, but gold has always survived the course.

GOLD.IO – Providing a Defensive Asset Protection to your Investments.

With a team of over 30 experienced developers, GOLD.IO has simply put a sister chain of the EOS Project which has the mission of creating a Decentralised Exchange (DEX) of smooth inter-block communications that not only eliminates persistent market influences but has the unique benefit of being backed by a commodity asset class.

Combining the proven power of gold as well as a growing community that is not only self-regulated but also stakeholder-led – GOLD.IO is also seeking to develop a fully-fledged Decentralised Autonomous Community (DAC) based on the founding principles of the blockchain. The DAC will serve as regulatory oversight of the exchange with all stakeholders enjoying full voting rights, a say over project development and more importantly the ability to define their profits.

Gold Backed Tokenomics Offers Trading Efficiency & High Liquidity.

With global stock volatility at best and a downward trajectory at worse – according to Goldman Sachs the markets are gripped with a fear of what may come in the coming year, a gold-linked exchange, with inherently high liquidity can part-mitigate investor risk.

With no independent or fair exchange yet to provide what GOLD.IO can, the benefits of the platform as a market leader are clear but the real magic comes with the EOISO blockchain system itself – it eliminates third-party manipulation and offers a unique architecture to ensure users remain the custodian of their gold. Join The Power of GOLD!

Blockchain Community Returns to Its Founding Principles with Revolutionary New Smart Contract Investment Platform

With global cryptocurrency investors hit by a near 18-month period of industry turmoil – the community requirement for a stable investment platform that can mitigate market volatility has become ever more important.

With hundreds of cryptocurrencies traded on global exchanges and even more coming to sector every quarter – the success rates of new ICO’s remains low against established currency platforms and with ICO funds often held in situ for 1-3 months until publicly traded, investor risk remains high.

What is needed is a Platform that can Reduce Investor Risk & Boost Confidence.

Introducing URA.market – The only blockchain venture of its kind offering a fully automated, independent and secure 100% divestment option.

Based on Etherium and with strict adherence to the founding principles of Blockchain – namely a deregulated global economy free from state manipulation, URA.market has already provoked the market with a Market Capitalisation of 630 ETH and 200 investors in 7 days.

Founded in December 2018 and based on a proven mathematical algorithm, the platform excludes the possibility of price manipulation and allows for both token overflow and price collapse scenarios. In short, URA.market offers private funders a true rarity – stakeholder and trading stability in an unstable market whilst maximising token utilisation.

Modelling to Innovate.

In a word our platform offers investor contract protection with open-coded and transparent smart contracts – underpinning this is a winning combination of both market and mathematical modelling.

The URA.market platform also offers investors a range of benefits including lifelong dividends as well as cash-outs to an ETH wallet at any time, flexibility as well as token price growth with dividend payouts on each transaction. URA.market operates an honest refusal of ownership and secures your transaction through the latest crypto technology.

No investor deposits are taken or transferred to the platform operator, and users are free to leave the platform at any stage. With all smart contracts immune to the developer and third-party manipulation, any contract that imitates a token is given a ‘Withdrawal from Ownership’ status offering the investor a piece of mind.

Following the BTC lead, we are a community- led project whose sole aim is to provide a stable, innovative and secure platform to maximise your crypto investment and market assets.

Top Blockchain Applications Making Waves in Commercial Real Estate

The commercial real estate (CRE) industry is comprised of many different types of service providers, including property management, brokerage firms, banks, and other types of lenders. When a CRE transaction takes place, there are various operators involved, requiring extensive sharing of official property documents, and financial information which need to be validated. The requirements for validating all information across all parties slows down the speed of each transaction, which can take weeks and months to complete. Many CRE firms have turned to blockchain to speed up execution times, decrease error and increase transparency in each transaction.

What Is Blockchain?

Blockchain technology is a way to store and transfer information in an encrypted manner by distributing data instead of copying it in a central location. Blockchain does so through a cloud, peer-to-peer network that eliminates the need for a third party, which ultimately reduces transaction fees. A digital ledger is then created and updated with each financial transaction in blocks.

There are plenty of benefits to making transactions and transferring data using blockchain as the technology is not controlled by one central entity, such as a central bank. This means that breaching these blocks is extremely difficult, maintaining the sanctity and transparency of its transactions and data.

Blockchain is the backbone of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, which offer speedy and low-cost ways of sending and receiving money.

Faster Transactions

One of the most exciting ways blockchain is disrupting the CRE world is in the form of smart contracts. The industry currently relies on an inefficient system of old-school verification of property ownership by conducting research to ensure the property belongs to the party who is selling it.

Blockchain can reduce the speed in which the chain of custody regarding CRE properties takes place as a property’s title would be stored on a public ledger. This would remove the need for another central repository, thus reducing transaction, state, city and legal costs. The same principle would apply for leases that would be recorded via blockchain.

More Transparent Deals

Blockchain can also ensure that real estates assets are more liquid and the terms of the agreement are fully understood by both sides as every piece of data regarding a property would be stored publicly. This includes data surrounding former owners, construction done on the property, past maintenance costs and records regarding former inspections.

Having all this information available would give the investor a more comprehensive idea of the property they are investing in. Blockchain essentially ensures that everyone is on the same page and both sides are fully aware of what they’re getting into as every piece of information is out there for anyone to access.

Digital Paper Trail

Another challenge with the CRE industry is the fact that public records can be outdated, unreliable or not available. Following a property’s paper trail can be time-consuming and frustrating as a lot of this information is lost due to poor organizational skills from industry workers and legacy systems that lose data when updated.

With blockchain, every piece of information on a property would be available in the same place rather than in multiple physical and digital domains. Blockchain would also help to eliminate the type of fraud that sometimes exist in the industry as deeds and titles can be counterfeited easily.

Buying Property With Cryptocurrencies

As previously mentioned, Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency that relies on blockchain to complete financial transactions online in a matter of seconds. Some investors and real estate firms have started adding Bitcoin to the industry, including Ivan Pacheco, who bought a two-bedroom condominium in Florida for $275,000 in Bitcoin.

In the residential space, you can buy a condo on the Lower East Side of Manhattan with Bitcoin. Meanwhile, some apartments in New York City are allowing their tenants to pay for rent using Bitcoin. Cryptocurrencies have been historically volatile and they’ve been on the decline since peaking in December 2017, but some investors believe that the future of real estate will be closely tied with Bitcoin and other digital coins.

Nevertheless, blockchain’s role in the CRE industry is becoming more prevalent each day. The technology’s potential to speed up transactions with smart contracts, its ability to add transparency to a deed or title and the fact that it dramatically decreases the chance for fraud suggest that more investors will flocks towards firms that use blockchain for CRE transactions.

DBX – The Blockchain For Real World Apps Launches Official ICO

September 24th, 2018, Singapore – The technology company that’s leveraging Blockchain to build applications and businesses with transparency and control of data in its core, begins ICO.

DBX made headlines this week with the announcement of their ICO launch that is expected to shake up the Blockchain ecosystem. The ICO, which is now open, intends to help DBX expand its operations and help businesses utilise blockchain in a workable and “real life” manner. DBX, or Database X, has been described as a fundamental breakthrough in the rollout or usage of blockchain for more businesses.

DBX is unique from other ICOs by the fact that before ICOs began, DBX had already completed:

  • An open source oncomof the first version of DBX Chain.
  • The launch of the Testnet.
  • Created the wallet app.
  • The first DApp (decentralized applications), known as Data Game.

More integration of third-party DApps from different industries have already been confirmed, including DApps with over 1 billion USD in annual transactions and a DApp with business in over 400,000 supermarkets globally. Prior to the ICO, the DBX founding team members had invested over $ 530,000 and had raised 5,100 ETH in private funding.

Those interested in supporting the DBX mission can click here: https://supportus.dbx.one/

How It Works:

DBXChain’s data ecosystem, built on blockchain, is designed for the big data era. The primary mission is to build a highly efficient and safe blockchain network, which encourages strengthened data exchange, and data value mining. The main hindrances of data exchange currently are data wastage, data islands, data scattering, and supply versus demand imbalance. To solve these problems, DBXChain offers a demand oriented, structured community network to serve as a safe,  efficient, traceable, connected and deeply useable data trading platform, suitable for data exchange and decentralization. While blockchain to date has been revolutionary, it is limited in terms of real world applications. This is where DBXChain is unique, as it is designed for real world purposes.

The Benefits:

  • Modernised, Decentralised Blockchain.
  • Real business and Real World applications.
  • Safe, Low Cost and Efficient.
  • Transparent and Open.

About DBX (Database X):

DBX (Database X) is a value-based ecosystem of data built on blockchain. It is a decentralized community for exploring and exchanging valuable data. It utilises a huge amount of “useless” data to achieve great value by making a correlation with demand which was previously undiscovered. This enables every participant in the community to acquire data with higher efficiency, lower cost and fairer trading. All data is, of course, accessed with the users consent. DBX put a huge emphasis on safe data and data protection. Users even have an option of monetising their own data, with a unique revenue sharing model.

DBX launched in 2016 and have since developed their own blockchain which aims to improve the now outmoded blockchain. DBXChain’s main business is data infrastructure that releases data’s value and “atomizes” data transactions. Data connections, that were not previously able to release value, have been made possible by this new blockchain operation system. As a result, this opens up blockchain to far more “real world” relevance than has previously been possible.

At the end of 2016, Tomi Wen, the founder of DBXChain, chose to get into the blockchain market by working on the underlying system of public chain and data infrastructure in the blockchain world. Tomi Wen holds a bachelor’s degree from Renmin University, and is a tech geek. He developed a software DIY-Page at age 15 and became “the software author that made Baidu change its algorithm”.

GLOBAL ENTERPRISE BLOCKCHAIN ADOPTION GEARS UP WITH RELEASE OF REMME TESTNET

Distributed Public Key Infrastructure (PKId) protocol REMME has released its sidechain testnet demonstrating the strongest use case for enterprise blockchain.

12 of September, 2018: REMME, developer of the blockchain-based access management solutions, announced its sidechain testnet open for public testing by enterprise and developers. REMME testnet is giving businesses the taste of the benefits blockchain bestows in regards to security and transparency.

Since completing token sale this February, REMME development team has been focusing on perfecting its proprietary REMChain for distributed Identity and Access management (IAMd) and Public Key Infrastructure (PKId) requests. The release of sidechain testnet means REMME technology is ready for testing in a full-scale business environment.

Commenting on the milestone, REMME CEO Alex Momot admitted: “The interoperability of the public blockchain and sidechains brings the unique synergy to shape the future of enterprise adoption for the technology. The sidechains that we have developed enable businesses to store key (certificate) data in a decentralized manner, eliminating single points of failure and allowing for integration with the existing enterprise systems (ERP, CRM, Accounting software etc.), while public REMChain assures authenticity and high-level security protecting the data with strong consensus algorithm Proof-of-Service.

As a result, enterprises enjoy the multiple benefits of blockchain technology, still working within the framework they are accustomed to. We now look forward to demonstrating the efficiency and security of this system for storing keys (certificates) data as we introduce a community to sidechains.”

A pilot program receiving applications since October 2017 has attracted interest from almost 300 global enterprises seeking to trial REMME PKId protocol and passwordless authentication system. Applicants are ranged from small IT companies to fintech firm with more than 500M users and a telecom company with 640M customers. REMME now encourages the op-dev community to join and contribute to the open source REMME Distributed Public Key Infrastructure protocol further development and implementation.

The testnet version has a number of features including the REMchain block explorer for checking block and transaction status in real-time, REM tokens to perform operations within the testnet, REMChain node monitoring connected to five nodes all over the world, and REMME WebAuth demo application. The next phase of development to be introduced in Q4-2018 implies the public REMChain powered by a network of master-nodes operating under a custom Proof-of-Service consensus algorithm.

The culmination of intensive R&D by REMME development team, sidechains are the clearest sign to-date that distributed PKI and access management systems will be successfully adopted by businesses. Blockchain will act as a network of trust providing a viable alternative to the password-based systems.

ABOUT REMME

REMME is an enterprise-grade distributed Public Key Infrastructure and Access Management platform that replaces traditional access approach based on passwords with digital certificates. It utilizes different PKI standards/protocols (e.g. SSL/TLS, x.509, etc) and blockchain technology to protect the entire channel from attack and to help IoT, financial infrastructure, MedTech, and blockchain companies address the problems associated with access security failings.

REMME Key components are: REMChain, REMME’s public blockchain with a Proof-of-Service consensus algorithm, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on top of it and incentivised by REM token.
