Bitquence – Consumer-Friendly Universal Wallet & Portfolio Diversification

“We believe in the philosophical mission established by Satoshi Nakamoto. By creating a secure layer that is accessible to the average person, we put the power in the hands of the people – where it belongs.”

What is Bitquence?

Bitquence is a people-powered cryptocurrency services company that is creating a Universal Wallet that lets you instantly diversify value across multiple crypto assets. Furthermore, Bitquence is issuing a token that has unique proof-of-stake community consensus features for risk and quality profiles and will form the backbone of the digital liquidity network, a global payments system that links fiat and crypto assets.

How will this help people get into cryptocurrencies?

Bitquence offers a single place for users to buy and interact with cryptocurrencies simply and easily. Bitquence simplifies using cryptocurrencies without losing the financial power and freedom that they offer.  They are trying to make it as simple as possible.

What is proof of stake community consensus?

Bitquence is building a method of staking BQX tokens against risk and quality profiles helping newer users navigate the market. Furthermore, a portion of the fees from the Bitquence platform will be used to reward users making accurate predictions in community consensus.

How is Bitquence different from Iconomi and ShapeShift Prism?

Iconomi is a pioneer, and is focusing on helping institutional money manage digital asset arrays. Shapeshift’s new Prism service is trying to make a market in asset allocation, eg there needs to be an opposite prism for a buyer and seller to make a match.

The Bitquence team also has deep mobile expertise, and is working hard on making Bitquence is mobile friendly.

Our goal at Bitquence is low fees, liquidity and transparency.   Our one-click diversification feature will not require a buyer or seller, but rather be part of a managed user portfolio. This is part of a larger vision to create a universal digital liquidity network based on the Bitquence token which makes the crypto market far more accessible to new users.

When will the platform be released?

Bitquence will roll out features of the platform as they are ready. First step is to roll out proof of stake and work towards building a regulatory and consumer protection model that will allow the release of subsequent features such as the universal wallet and one-click diversification.

Described as being a “multi-year project and vision” by its founders, Bitquence aims to go market by the end of 2017 with the Bitquence wallet, Cold storage, Proof of Stake and portfolio diversification. Next year plans are slated to initiate the liquidity network, value transfer and fiat gateway.

EOS Token ICO

EOS is a new blockchain operating system designed to support commercial-scale decentralized applications. EOS is going to be one of the hottest ICOs on Ethereum network. Even though, Ethereum is just a place for EOS to fund (EOS will have its own blockchain). I expect EOS market cap position to clime in the list because EOS will conduct its crowdsale for the whole year!

I have participated to ICO 29.-30.7.2017 (round #30). I got EOS Tokens 6,4% discount compared to Exchange price (0.008673023 ETH/EOS).

About ICO:

Seven hundred million additional EOS Tokens (representing 70% of the total EOS Tokens being distributed) have been split evenly into 350 consecutive 23-hour periods of 2 million tokens each and will be distributed at the close of each period. The remaining 100 million EOS Tokens (representing 10% of the total EOS Tokens being distributed) have been reserved for block.one as founder’s tokens pursuant to the feedback received from the community to ensure that block.one has aligned interests with those participating in the EOS Token distribution. If a blockchain adopting the EOS.IO software is launched, these founder’s tokens will be locked and released over a period of 10 years.

Brendan Blumer, CEO of block.one said:

“We felt an approximately year-long token distribution was the best method to ensure people receive fair market value for EOS Tokens. We anticipate that strong interest will continue throughout the year as the community continues to learn about the EOS.IO software and the benefits it can bring to their business.”

EOS price:

1 EOS = 0.46270000 EUR
1 EOS = 0.54570000 USD
1 EOS = 0.00193700 ETH
1 EOS = 0.00014920 BTC

Minereum

It is always the best idea to join in to something that is brand-new and has yet to be seen in the crypto world. MNE is defiantly going to be getting huge by the end of 2017 to the beginning of 2018.
Minereum, a relatively new cryptocurrency platform stands apart from its counterparts, thanks to the innovative technology which is wrapped in an easy-to-use package for wider reach. According to the creators of Minereum, it is the first self-mining smart contract that is based on a mathematical formula which allows certain “Genesis Addresses” to continuously generate new tokens.

News

The Pillar Wallet is the next-generation, open-source wallet that will become the dashboard for your digital life.

Project Goals (from Pillar website):

Build the world’s best cryptowallet.

We will build the personal data locker, starting with the world’s best, open-source cryptowallet. We will then add browsers, exchanges, data, devices, services, calendars, and much more.

Replace accounts with atomic ownership.

We all have dozens of accounts. With accounts, you log in and all your valuable data is trapped. Using atomic ownership, each person owns and controls his/her own assets.

Replace apps with services.

Apps on our phones are miniature desktop apps. We believe the personal data locker will replace iOS and Android to become the operating system for all your devices.

 

It seems that Pillar Project’s goal is to become that dashboard for cryptocurrency users, everywhere. It’s safer for normal user to consolidate all crypto related access through one centralized point and this is what Pillar is all about. You don’t have to waste time for managing all your digital assets in different wallets or exchanges. One dashboard for all digital currencies!

Pillar Project is aiming way further than just being wallet. They are adding integrated exchange service, mobile design. Their big goal is to replace Android and iOS as the predominant sell phone OS (I don’t believe that this will happen in any time soon)…

Masternode Coins

What are Masternodes?

Masternodes primary function is to relay transactions across the network. Additionally they carry out the anonymization of funds and enable double-spend-proof transactions through instant lockdowns.

In the future even more valuable services will be performed by the Masternode network.

In return for providing these services, one Masternode is selected by the network to receive a part of the reward of each mined block.

In order to run a masternode, a user must put needed amount of coins as something akin to collateral, though unlike traditional collateral, the coins never leaves the user’s possession. It can be moved or spent at any time by the user – doing so simply removes the masternode from service and makes it ineligible to receive rewards. You need dedicates IP address and 24hr uptime is ideal.
