2019 will be a decisive year for the Blockchain industry as the world moves towards a friendlier Crypto environment with governments such as Korea, Singapore, and Switzerland paving the way for appropriate regulatory measures. Likewise, France is aiming to become a blockchain hub for entrepreneurs and investors alike, with a 30% flat tax regime possibly in the works. Blockchain.io aims to become the new European cryptocurrency exchange of trust for individual and institutional investors alike. At the center of the Internet of Value, we provide users with an augmented trading experience in a thriving ecosystem.

A new wave and generation of tokens is upon us, and Blockchain.io intends to be a leading player in this field. As such, we have conceived the BCIO token to do just that, and more importantly, we envisioned and conceptualized it as a pipeline to the Internet of Value. For the first time, transactions can be performed without any counterparty risk, which is a crucial advancement as well as a guarantee of safety. This brings us to the essence of CEO Pierre Noizat’s vision of digital assets as a platform for applications, as well as a marketing mechanism.

Proprietary exchange tokens are still fairly uncommon in the cryptosphere, even though a handful of major platforms...

IOTW's ICO Analysis and 15 billion IoT devices in the world

There are already over 15 billion IoT devices in the world. These devices carry lots of data usage statistics that could be very valuable to the right companies. The problem until recently is that it’s almost impossible to collect all of this valuable data in an organized way. But now the experienced team at IOTW has invented a way to easily connect any IoT device to their blockchain. Once connected, the IoT device becomes a node and mines IOTW tokens as a reward to the device users. The usage data is then collected and sold to companies in exchange for IOTW tokens.

Based in Hong Kong, IOTW is a product of the groundbreaking Blockchain company, AnApp Blockchain Technologies Ltd. The IOTW blockchain software will operate an open-SDK, allowing any device to load the blockchain app and gain access to the IOTW blockchain ecosystem.

In order to incentivize users to connect their IoT devices/appliances to their blockchain, the hard working team has developed 2 unique new protocols; “Micro Mining” and “Proof of Assignment.” Together, these protocols allow every household to join the mining community without restrictions. Each device they connect will become a node, and each node will have the same chance of being selected to mine as all the other nodes in the network. No whale power on this chain.

How it works:

  1. Download their software through firmware upgrades to connect any device to the IOTW Ecosystem.
  2. Start mining with very little power consumption.
  3. Redeem rewards. “IoT device owners will be rewarded with IOTW coins which the devices can use to call up services or spare parts. The owners can also use the IOTW coins to buy goods, services and media content in open markets.”
  4. Sell your data for more IOTW tokens. “IOTW blockchain will collect big data. Allowing global, city-wide, and district-wide energy saving optimization.”

Here’s a 7-minute video we were linked to by their Telegram mod. It does a great jump of explaining why IOTW is such an exciting project. The video has already received an impressive 56,000 views, and is worth checking out.

In addition, IOTW plans to allow for the development of decentralized applications on IoT devices. And they will establish a decentralized purchase network for IOTW holders to bypass the middlemen and purchase directly from device makers and service providers.

Also, the team invented a Digital Power System chipset (“DPS chipset”) that replaces traditional analog power systems in small appliances with digital power systems. From the company:

“We believe the DPS chipset will be able to see adoption by a certain number of device manufacturers for saving costs while increasing device functionality. We have already filed a patent for the DPS chipset design. We plan to file a few more patents for this new product.”


IOTW will have the following utility:

  • Device users receive IOTW token as rewards for mining, as well as for selling their usage data.
  • Device makers, research institutes, government agencies, and other organizations can purchase usage data with IOTW.
  • Goods and services providers will sell through the online mall accepting IOTW as a payment method.
  • A percentage of IOTW will be taken as a processing fee for each transaction.

The Proof of Assignment protocol requires way less power for mining than Proof of Work....

TAP Coin: Decentralized blockchain-based advertising #TokenSale

Digital world

The new world of blockchain-based advertising will create a major shift at the cross-section of advertising and the internet.

HOOCH, the number top drink-a-day app that has changed the game for bargoers from New York to Hong Kong with their free drink app, is about to shake up the hospitality industry again. Not basking for long in the success of their recently-released lifestyle experience program, HOOCH Black, this next development is also set to be a surefire success.

Their new project, TAP Coin, is due to be launched soon and it’s an innovative product, to say the least. TAP Coin is more than just HOOCH. While HOOCH Black has 100,000 hotels on the platform, with discounts of up to 60% off Expedia and hotels.com rates, TAP Coin will feature more than just this. HOOCH will be the first — and only one of dozens of apps on the TAP decentralized ad network. This means that while HOOCH currently has 200,000 subscribers, other apps will have tens of millions on the network. But there’s more- the advertising potential is phenomenal with a platform like TAP Coin. Due to its decentralized nature, the network is magnitudes more efficient than advertising on a centralized platform like Facebook, Instagram or Google AdWords.

Millions of users, hundreds of thousands of venues, massive discounts and a radically new advertising model, all based on blockchain - TAP Coin is the next household name app.

Not only does TAP Coin offer major discounts on hotels, drinks and entertainment experiences, it also uses the power of blockchain to empower consumers with their own data. This means that users now have the choice to allow advertisers to collect their data or not. If users allow their data to be used by advertisers, then they are rewarded with TAP, which they can then redeem on hotels and experiences (at already discounted prices).

In this way, TAP becomes a defacto loyalty currency, which does not discriminate according to origin of the loyalty points. It solves the old...
