Introduction

We believe that crypto-currency is more than just a new type of payments system; it's a revolution which is going to fundamentally change
the way we do business both online and in the real world. We believe that in the future there will be millions of blockchains running
concurrently providing the basis for real world distributed business collaboration providing all manner of goods and services. Furthermore
we believe that the very notion of employer and employee will give way to a new paradigm of leaders and collaborators. Leaders will be anyone
who has a vision of how to use a blockchain to implement a real world business plan and collaborators will be anyone who participates or invests
in the plan to bring it to market. In the future deploying a new blockchain will be an action as uncontentious as setting up a webserver is today,
and the technology which powers the blockchain will be as unremarkable as the developers choice between using NGINX or APACHE.

TOURIVA is an attempt to model that future paradigm and bring it into the market in the here and now, by providing a platform through which
a globally distributed group of collaborators can provide services aimed at the travel and tourism industry. We seek collaborators worldwide
to provide TOURIVA branded services in exchange for TOURIVA tokens. Collaborators will not be employees, but rather independent service
providers who follow a set of guidelines in order for end users to enjoy a uniform experience when using the TOURIVA system to enjoy travelling.


Ways to Collaborate

Mining : TOURIVA offers 25% block reward for network hashpower support.
MasterNode : TOURIVA offers 75% block reward for Masternode holders with a 500 TOURIVA collateral.
Bed-mining : In TOURIVA, offering accomodation services is the real world equivalent of connecting to the network with an ASIC,
and due to the low coin cap, the quickest way to obtain TOURIVA will always be to provide the end user service of a place to
sleep in a desirable location.
Donation : The TOURIVA network is entirely funded by donation, and donators recieve access to a private channel on our discord.


Project Roadmap

Phase 1 (Complete) : Genesis block, wallets for Windows/MAC/Linux, establishment of discord channel
Phase 2 (Ongoing) : Development of web based ecosystem and infrastructure to facilitate trading and growth of the network.
Phase 3 : Bedspaces for Backpackers

It has been determined that the easiest way to bootstrap the TOURIVA global tourism network
will be in promoting the lowest cost types of accomodation first. From a simple airbed to a bunkbed dormitory,
the focus will be on providing simple cheap accomodation to thrifty backpacker travellers on a budget.

The Touriva travel app will work in a similar manner to AirBnB and will for the most part hide the fact that TOURIVA
uses crypto-currency so that end users will not need to know or care about crypto in order to make bookings. This is
crucial in many ways, and it also allows for the system to be marketed on Facebook to backpackers and other tourists.

We are not planning on having fees or commissions for listings on TOURIVA, however if the situation calls for it in
the future we reserve the right to do so, for instance to cover marketing or other costs, and we pledge that TOURIVA
fees will always be very small.

Phase 4 : Dedicated Rooms for Couples / Families

Granted success in phase 3, many early accomodation providers will likely become large holders of TOURIVA, and given that
TOURIVA is a Masternode based network with a low coin cap, it seems likely that the value of an individual TOURIVA token
will rise with demand generated in phase 3. This will enable collaborators to begin providing larger scale accomodation options
such as renting a whole apartment to rent out the rooms to tourists who want a double or kingsize bed.

Phase 5 : Small hotels

In many parts of the world it's possible to rent small dedicated hotel units and furnish them under the TOURIVA branding. We hope
that success in the earlier phases will enable the biggest collaborators to begin offering this level of service under the TOURIVA
branding. It is also possible that at this point collaborators will be able to negotiate with small hotel owners to bring their
hotels into the TOURIVA system.

Phase 6 : Large Hotels / Resorts

We believe it's possible and we hope it will happen, that the most profitable ventures in TOURIVA will eventually be able to afford
to purchase or even construct dedicated large hotels and resorts around the world. This represents the ultimate end game for TOURIVA,
the bootstrapping of a true global competitor in the hospitality market, one which can perform to the same standard as any existing
luxury accomodation experience provider.

Hi, thanks for your interest in Touriva!

We are not currently listed on any exchanges, trading is possible through our internal exchange which is in beta testing now. The internal exchange is key to how the TOURIVA system will work in the future because it will exchange tourists payments using creditcards to tokens. To understand that further consider the scenario when the main app is up and running and being promoted like any other tourist club and an end user who has no knowledge of crypto wishes to make a booking for a stay in a given location. From their perspective the App will work like any booking system, accepting their credit card details and notifying the host of the booking. Under the hood the system will use the funds from the credit card payment to purchase the lowest priced TOURIVA tokens from the TOUR / USD section of the exchange, and it will send those to the host as payment for the stay. This way the flow of end users taking vacations will provide a constant upwards pressure on the TOUR / USD market, and given that some of the hosts will prefer to hoard in order to build masternodes rather than immediately dump, it seems likely that somewhat less than 100% of the TOUR will re-enter the market, creating a deflationary pressure which increases as more tourists use the app and more hosts use their ASIC like income from their bed-mining activity to build up their Masternode holdings.

We do recognise that at this early stage trust in our systems is something we need to earn, and because of that we are also saving up in our donations pot towards getting listed on a 3rd party trusted exchange. I believe the current favourite choice is crex24, but that could change depending on future donations and/or the market value of BTC at the time the donator panel decides to spend from the donations pot to get listings or advertise the system.

Like Simon said the current favorite 3rd party exchange is Crex24 but this is subject to change as our Donators ultimately decide what exchange we are going to list on. as for other sites we are planning to get listed on we are already on ihostmn and masternode-world for shared and hosted masternodes and we are looking at sites to add to this list.
We are also planning to get listed on all the major tracking sites ones we get listed on a 3rd party exchagne. so for example Coingecko, Blockfolio, Delta and obviously coinmarketcap.

Didn't expect the chain to be almost a year old. 202k blocks and 371 mn, but announced today. lol

Post by: SimonOdell on September 12, 2019, 11:00:05 PM
Yup, it's been running a fair old time. Originally this project was called TourCoin but there was another group who took the name and announced right before we were about to. It seemed at the time like they had just copied the idea and made a high ROI scam out of it. An argument ensued and the anonymous dev called me a theif of their idea! ( If you search TourCoin it might amuse you to read the threads ) The other TourCoin died not long after and I gave a bunch of their users a free swap out.

Anyway after that event it was decided to take a step back, rebrand the project and develop it quietly until it was in a much more advanced state and ready to start being open again.

TOURIVA is that new branding, the concept has been developed and refined for many months now.

If your thinking of obtaining some, you can do so on the exchange, I will not sell any TOURIVA directly and I've never taken a single penny to my pocket whilst running this. I won't be rewarded until I succeed in bringing this concept to market, I don't need to take anything I have a good job anyway.

We could do with any help in the form of donations, TOURIVA is 100% funded by donations and I personally spend $200 / month supporting the web servers for the ecosystem.

Hopefully the age of the chain will support our claim to being a geniune project and not some scam! Certainly if this was a scam it would have to be some sort of record holder for the longest slowest scam in history.

Another thing to consider if your going to join us is that as a low-cap coin, which has already been running for a significant time there is very little  inflation running now and any coins you obtain are not going to be swamped out by a high ROI peak 2 minutes after you buy them.

If the guest is paying in Fiat, why would i as a accommodation provider risk to be paid in your tokens?
What are the benefits of receiving payment in this form?

Hi BlockBob thanks for your question!

If your just looking to earn a bit of quick fiat currency there are many options online right now for you to do so, you can just list your accomodation option on AirBnB or Booking.com. Either option is safe, simple and .... boring.

TOURIVA is like a worldsized game of Monopoly where the goal is to build your very own TOURIVA hotel using the deflationary effect of crypto to your advantage such that hospitality services you offer early gain you far more tokens than you're likely to get later in the game for the same amount of effort.

Do you remember the 10,000 BTC pizza?

Offering a bed to sleep on the TOURIVA network is the equivalent of connecting an ASIC. Why would you spend hundreds of dollars buying ASIC hardware when you can just put those dollars in a bank or buy some stocks with them? The answer is because you expect to make a much larger return on your investment than you can on other options.

Later on in the development of the system I hope to obtain a tourism licence here in Dubai, and armed with that I will be able to send paying customers from here to stay in accomodation options around the world. If all goes to plan ( and it may not ) at that point these accomodation options will be like franchises, decorated and furnished with the TOURIVA brand, so that from an end users perspective it's like TOURIVA is hotel chain they can use and expect a uniform quality of service anywhere there is a TOURIVA location in the world.

The people who own and run these locations are going to be the ones who get the concept early and find ways to collaborate to make it happen. A determined group of people can achieve anything in this world.

As I've said in a previous comment, at this early stage I recognise that I need to earn your trust. There are many scams out there, but this is not one of them. I am quite open about the fact that this might not work at all, but if it does fail it will not be for lack of trying or because I was not on the level.

I have a 5 bedroom home in the united states. The entire upstairs used to be rented out since is has a bathroom, kitchen and 2 bedrooms. I would be interested in renting it out and would like a breakdown on how that would take place.

For me, the age of the chain does the exact opposite. It makes it look LIKE a scam, because who has all those coins if you just announced it? You have a mil coins yourself now? Do you have 371 mn? Nobody else is posting here, etc.

I'm interested in pow, but I didn't mine this because it's already nearly a year old and not on any exchanges, with today being the first announcement. Looks sketchy to me. Not looking for another coin to waste my time mining for it to just be dumped by the devs.

Tell me, what's the difference between a premine and announcing the coin after you mined it for a year? Like you said, it's a low cap coin. So, a million coins being in circulation for a low-cap coin that was just announced. Of course, I'm going to assume that you have them all. lol. If you don't, who does? Why aren't any of these other people posting in here? (inb4 a bunch of copper and below noobs start posting random support)

Your ann also has no links to anything but your website. No wallet, no block explorer, etc. No mention of pools. Very little content. Your website is basically the same, but at least has a block explorer and wallet link. It's almost like you don't even want miners to mine it.

You also talk so much about not being a scam that it's fishy. lol.

Most crypto scams don't make sense, so your "slowest scam in history" point is moot. "Touriva is entirely funded by donation" and "I don't take any money for this project" don't work well together. If I donate to the project, you take the money, right? It goes to your pocket, right? Sure you might invest it into the network, but you're benefitting from that too. Ultimately using someone else's money for your (and hopefully our) gain. Is that not taking money and profit?

Don't get me wrong, not saying you are definitely scamming people, or not, just explaining what I feel when I read over this thread, why I am not mining it, etc. Once I ran the wallet and seen 46 weeks, it was a wrap. lol

Nice!

For the moment if your interested in the project you can hang out in our discord and monitor progress. I'm hoping to have the main app up and running with a crop of initial locations by next summer so I can go on what I call the MegaTOUR. I'm hoping to circumnavigate the whole world going from TOURIVA location to location all on camera to put on youtube. The operators of those locations are going to get handsome amounts of TOUR and exposure for their location.

When things are ready the experience of listing will be similar to AirBnB, you just put the details of the location your offering on the app and hopefully start recieving guests. You can then either hoard the TOUR and build masternodes or you can exchange it for fiat and cash out, that's your choice.

the age of the chain does the exact opposite...


Look, the scammers start off day one with a big push to sell coins or masternodes, making alsorts of big promises and typically having setup the reward structure so that masternodes.online will report a crazy high ROI a couple of weeks later so that noobs will come along and buy in. They do this under a cloud of anonymity and as soon as the coin gets on the exchanges they dump and run.

TOUR has been growing slowly over a year now, we have never sold any coins, I've never taken a penny to my pocket. Feel free to discuss the project with anyone in our channel, they have learned to trust me.




who has all those coins if you just announced it? You have a mil coins yourself now? Do you have 371 mn? Nobody else is posting here, etc.


TOUR is a low cap coin, only 3mil will ever be minted, 1.4mil are currently in circulation of which I am holding 750K. I started out with 1.2mil and I have distributed the difference for free to a group of about 800 people. I did that to help people build masternodes to secure the network, we currently have 379 active nodes. I haven't sold any coins and I'm not going to.




I'm interested in pow, but I didn't mine this because it's already nearly a year old and not on any exchanges, with today being the first announcement. Looks sketchy to me. Not looking for another coin to waste my time mining for it to just be dumped by the devs.


I'm not going to dump my coins, building this is a career move not a get rich quick scheme. It's a get stinking rich very slowly scheme! I've been working on this for over a year now without putting it on any exchanges, and you think that means I must be looking to dump? No way!!

What is your interest in TOURIVA? Are you hoping to just mine some of the coin so you can dump it on an exchange and move along? If that's the case then really your just looking to scavenge some free money from my efforts and your not really interested in what we are doing at all.





Tell me, what's the difference between a premine and announcing the coin after you mined it for a year?


None really, we have both a huge premine and an 'old' chain. I don't intend for TOURIVA tokens to be easily obtainable through any method other than through offering accomodation services on our planned app. Whilst we are in the bootstrap period anything you can do to contribute to the project will be useful and rewarded with free TOUR.



Why aren't any of these other people posting in here? (inb4 a bunch of copper and below noobs start posting random support)


Most of the people who are holders in the project only check in with it's progress from time to time, I'm sure a few of them will popup eventually.



It's almost like you don't even want miners to mine it.


People can mine it if they want, they won't get a whole bunch of reward for doing that, certainly not at this stage anyway. The settings of the coin are intended to make offering accomodation services the absolutely most rewarding strategy for being involved in this.



You also talk so much about not being a scam that it's fishy. lol.

Over the years I've been scammed in crypto so many times I'm naturally suspicious of everything, and you should be as well. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone looking at this ( or any other project ) to do due dilligence and research. It's only sensible to be cautious in this sphere.






Most crypto scams don't make sense, so your "slowest scam in history" point is moot. "Touriva is entirely funded by donation" and "I don't take any money for this project" don't work well together. If I donate to the project, you take the money, right? It goes to your pocket, right? Sure you might invest it into the network, but you're benefitting from that too. Ultimately using someone else's money for your (and hopefully our) gain. Is that not taking money and profit?


No, 100% of all money ever collected in the donations pot is still in the donations pot. It's about 0.34 BTC right now, and when it's big enough it will be spent on listings. I pay $200 a month to support the web ecosystem whilst I'm developing it in my spare time.




Don't get me wrong, not saying you are definitely scamming people, or not, just explaining what I feel when I read over this thread, why I am not mining it, etc. Once I ran the wallet and seen 46 weeks, it was a wrap. lol

Well that's your choice, we are not going to reboot the chain now it's running nicely and a lot of people have put a lot of effort into setting up Masternodes and keeping them up to date with the releases as the project evolved over the last year. Once again; We are looking for people to collaborate with us in bootstrapping a Tourism company, if that's interesting to you then join us, if your just looking to get some free money for doing basically nothing then I think you will find this project a disappointment.

I am part of the Touriva community for some time now and want to let potential future investors know
that these guys are serious about what they're doing and also have the development skills to pull it off.
A lot better then most of the other crypto projects who don't even have developers and only vague ideas.
Forget those, focus on Touriva!  :)

Thanks for your answer to my previous question....
How will customers get to know about accommodation that is being offered, what marketing will be done?

Great question, thanks for asking!

Let me tell you a little story...

About 18 months ago my wife and I were out shopping at a local supermarket and She entered our details
into a competition. A couple of weeks later we got a phone call saying we had won a gold coin and a free
getaway vacation and all we had to do was attend this short presentation at a Novotel hotel here in Dubai.

The company was called Novo Elite vacations and initially I thought they were connected to Novotel but
that was not the case ( I have a feeling they did that deliberately! ) Anyway during the presentation a pressure
salesman convinced me to join their club so I could use them for my vacations for the next few years. Now
to be fair I have been to New York twice, Bangkok and a weekend getaway in Abu Dhabi and I still have
more credit with them, but their customer service was, well let's say they were not terribly professional.

Anyway it was on the first trip to NYC when I had the idea to create a crypto-based tourism club with
franchise branded locations worldwide which can then be marketed here in Dubai in a similar manner to
the way Novo Elite market their offering.

Getting to that stage means bootstrapping through lower stages however because I can't sell a premium
vacation offering without being sure that I'm sending people to a suitable destination. Intially therefore
I intend to target the low end of the tourism market, which is why phase one is titled 'Bedspaces for Backpackers'

The TOURIVA app will work very much like NovoElite app, and at first I will be promoting to backpacker
online social spots and signing people up with a free welcome bonus of enough TOURIVA for a weekend
getaway provided by 3rd parties wherever they are. The coins I allocate for free will not be withdrawable and
can only be used to create a booking on the app. I will also be suggesting to these backpackers that since TOURIVA
is a crypto-currency based project they may benefit from buying up some TOURIVA for their future travel plans.
Some will get it some won't, but I'm sure it's possible for me to send tourists from here in Dubai to the TOURIVA
locations once they become available.

Another approach I have is making sure that the TOURIVA app for the most part conceals the crypto-currency
aspect such that an end user need have no experience at all of using crypto in order to be a customer. This
has the added benefit that the company can be promoted on Facebook, circumventing their rules about
advertising crypto-projects. Unless they spend a bunch of time really digging into the app they should be
entirely oblivious to the fact it's a crypto-project.

I joined Touriva last autumn. And in many ways he was not like other projects. There are no beautiful pictures with graphs and charts and pathos statements. This is what distinguished TourCoin from other projects when developers, after a couple of months, apparently flew away to the personal moon, forgetting to notify the community about it. But Simon is a real developer who does not hide behind false photos stolen from microstock and understands how his project will look and why he creates it. It also answers any questions, as you can see by reading the previous posts. In most projects, we donít even know who is its developer. As an obvious example of a fake Tour, the creator of which is probably already making a new fraudulent project.

Hi thanks for your question!

The team are myself and Martin Schillhorn, joined by our panel of 12 donators.

About me :

My full name is Simon James Odell, I am 39 years old and I live and work in Dubai.

My online details :

Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/simonjodell (https://www.facebook.com/simonjodell)

LinkedIn : https://www.linkedin.com/in/simonjamesodell/ (https://www.linkedin.com/in/simonjamesodell/)

My fulltime job is working for a company which trades in rough diamonds through Dubai's DMCC ( https://www.dmcc.ae/ (https://www.dmcc.ae/) ) The software I am writing for them is a stock control and valuation system which tracks the stones through their journey from the mines to the jewellery stores and calculates the value of the stones according to a complex set of market information and pricing rules which were devised by the directors of the company.

On almost a daily basis people who I know through working in Almas Tower ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almas_Tower (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almas_Tower) ) for the last 4 years, and who I have been speaking to about my crypto-project, are asking me for updates about what is happening with the project. The DMCC allows for crypto-currency to be traded as a commodity and it's part of my plan to obtain a DMCC trading licence so I can legally trade TOURIVA and other crypto's within the DMCC.

My role within TOURIVA is the founder/leader, 'visionary' of the concept, and lead ( currently only ) programmer for the web ecosystem. I also created the TOURIVA genesis block and I compile the Windows and Linux versions of the wallet.

I'll let Martin explain his background and role for himself, and perhaps one or two of the donators will chime in ( if they feel like it! )

My fulltime job is working for a company which trades in rough diamonds through Dubai's DMCC ( https://www.dmcc.ae/ (https://www.dmcc.ae/) ) The software I am writing for them is a stock control and valuation system which tracks the stones through their journey from the mines to the jewellery stores and calculates the value of the stones according to a complex set of market information and pricing rules which were devised by the directors of the company.

On almost a daily basis people who I know through working in Almas Tower ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almas_Tower (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almas_Tower) ) for the last 4 years, and who I have been speaking to about my crypto-project, are asking me for updates about what is happening with the project. The DMCC allows for crypto-currency to be traded as a commodity and it's part of my plan to obtain a DMCC trading licence so I can legally trade TOURIVA and other crypto's within the DMCC.

My role within TOURIVA is the founder/leader, 'visionary' of the concept, and lead ( currently only ) programmer for the web ecosystem. I also created the TOURIVA genesis block and I compile the Windows and Linux versions of the wallet.

I'll let Martin explain his background and role for himself, and perhaps one or two of the donators will chime in ( if they feel like it! )

About 10% of the coins available on the exchange have already sold.

I am not selling any coins myself, this is not an ICO or any sort of fundraiser, it's simply the opening of trading and the market is deciding what the value should be based on what people know about my plans, skills and positioning.

Project Roadmap
Phase 2 (Ongoing) : Development of web based ecosystem and infrastructure to facilitate trading and growth of the network.

Regarding phase2: webbased ecosystem

Are there dates set when first beta version will be available?

Post by: SimonOdell on September 24, 2019, 01:59:11 PM
I don't have a specific date yet for everything to be up and running as I'm working a fulltime job and doing this in my available spare time.

Still to be done is :

- fixing the recently discovered bugs in the internal exchange
- 2FA
- improvements to the home and information pages
- the bookings web app

I suspect if I was working fulltime on the project it could all be accomplished within about 6-8 weeks of sustained effort, but I do have a day job so it's going to take a lot longer than that.

Having said that, I've just recently been talking to a friend of mine who used to work here in Dubai as the manager of the local branch of IGI ( International Gemological Institute ). He has retired from the diamond industry now and bought a holiday village in the south of France which he is currently renovating with a view to opening to the public from about April 2020. We are discussing doing a get-together for the TOURIVA community there this coming summer, and the place is likely to be the first holiday resort type offering available through the TOURIVA system.

For details of the location google "lac de gurson"

I have started discussions with several commodities traders within Dubai's DMCC with a view to securing investments in the coin in the near future. It's tricky because these guys are always really busy buying and selling things like Diamonds, precious metals and other commodities, but there is interest and the DMCC itself has fairly recently had adverts up in Almas tower raising awareness of crypto-currency to promote their Crypto-currency trading licence which I will be seeking in the future so I can bulk advertise in the DMCC rather than just meeting people socially.

Can you put a section on your website regarding your team details and links? Not all people can read the details your team are posting in this thread. I have seen several projects exploring the tourism sector, yet, they have no success in actually implementing it. I wish you all the best for this project because we need more of this app for the travelers to get more benefits while traveling.

By the way, I like the part that you will have your Touriva store as well. Where hosts can purchase customized items for their place. Looking forward to the time of implementation of this platform... Good luck!

I am wondering who are the current holders of your TOUR coin as you already started the trading in crex?
Are those from mn owners or from the premine of 1.27M TOUR coins?
I am not being negative here but I hope you are sincerely developing this platform for travelers.
And not just a way of earning money for your pockets.
We are already tired of seeing platforms that use a good front to grab cash from unknowingly customers.

I am wondering who are the current holders of your TOUR coin as you already started the trading in crex?

TOURs are held by about 800 people right now, with the bulk of the coins in my hands and smaller amounts in the hands of the team and early adopters and donators to the project.

Quote
Are those from mn owners or from the premine of 1.27M TOUR coins?

A bit of both, of the premine only 720K remains in my hands, the rest has been manually distributed. I have not sold any TOUR, nor have I deposited any coins to the exchange. The premine exists so I can do deals with commodity traders here in Dubai's DMCC. The plan is to have them invest in bulk and use the funds to buy listings and support the price at the exchange.

Absolutely I am, but your cynacism is well understood and in this market it's frankly healthy to be skeptical and suspicious. If you would like to come to our discord I can prove to you my real world identity which I am showing publically as the founder of this project. I can also prove that I am positioned in Dubai's DMCC area and have access to the commodities trading hub here.

And not just a way of earning money for your pockets.
I haven't taken a single penny from the project into my pocket and in terms of both time and money I am currently it's biggest investor by a long way. I'm going for the biggest prize here, the ability to stay at any one of many quality TOURIVA locations worldwide anytime I want for the whole of my future retirement... I'm not going to let the potential go for a handful of BTC.

Completely understandable, I too have been burned on various shitcoin projects. It's a fact which has always weighed on my thinking and whilst I've been capable of launching something like this for many years now, I never had a concept which I believed I could make work before I came up with TOURIVA and decided to go ahead with it.

I fully understand and appreciate that at this stage I need to prove myself and my project in the eyes of the crowd. I have no problem with that and I fully intend to do so. So please feel free to interogate me to your satisfaction :)

Thank you for your response regarding my post. Appreciate it.
I hope you are honest with your answers above.
If in case this will push thru, I wish all the best for Touriva then!
The number of travelers are getting higher each day so they deserve better options where they can get it at economical price.

Hi, you can find all the published information on the site homepage in the 'invest & earn' section.

I haven't actually paid much attention to marketing materials such as a roadmap and whitepaper. The roadmap is tricky because whilst I can sketch out roughly the steps needed to reach the end goals, pressures on my time such as my fulltime job, the family nursery business and my 3 year old daughter mean that I can't predict how much time I will have to dedicate to development week to week so there are two levels of uncertainty ( the other being how long a given section of code requires to build ) and therefore any prediction I make is likely to be so wildly inaccurate that it's next to useless.

I've written about 3 A4 pages worth of whitepaper material so far and there is more to add to it. It's been released in it's current form within the donators only section on the discord for feedback.

My stance is that my time is best used actually building stuff rather than making up stuff about how I'm going to build stuff. TOURIVA is my ambition becoming manifest and it's not like I'm trying to raise millions of dollars and open plush offices or anything like that. If you want to drop a token donation, even just a dollar, into the donations pot you can get access to the donators room where you can talk to the others about the project and where we are going with it. Everyone in there is part of an extended distributed team.

Touriva got a lot of great improvements currently under construction:

- Switching to a more stable mining algorythm and masternode collateral increase and block time halving.
- Rewrite of their official website and home exchange and mobile optimization of it.

Results will be a more stable moving chain, faster transaction times and lower server costs for masternode holders.

The community is expanding and work is done to increase exposure for Touriva. I still consider this project a diamond in the rough, happy holder. Thanks :)

Hi there, not sure to be honest.

I was about to get stuck into coding it when it was discovered that the existing internal exchange system had a security hole which was allowing people to manipulate their balances, so I shut it down and now I'm building a new one in NodeJS and VueJS. It's going to be much better and much more secure! I'm done with PHP... never again!!!!

With regard to project failure... not going to happen...

I'm not some script-kiddie from eastern Europe playing crypto-entrepeneur! I'm a 20+ years experienced web developer with a full time well paid job in Dubai working for a company that trades in rough diamonds.

I won't let this project fail, it's my retirement plan.

Soon I'll reach the point where I can get commodity traders here in Dubai's DMCC onboard and then we will see some sparks fly price wise :)

Better hurry, the cheap coins are selling out fast. A few days ago there was 75K TOUR on sale, right now there is 41.7K and I expect shortly it will be down to about 35K.

Also the donators panel have decided to up the collateral to 1000 coins at the next wallet release which we are hoping to have ready in a few weeks.

That's exactly the whole point of the project; think about how much people spend annually on travelling... it's one of the worlds biggest industries.

Personally I spend several thousand dollars a year travelling. If we can get together a reasonable sized group that uses the system annually for their travel needs, the buying pressure will send the coin sky high. I have a friend I met here in Dubai who has recently bought a holiday resort in southern France called "lac de gurson". He's busy renovating it right now and hopes to have it open for business from around April. We are planning to do the first TOURIVA gathering there in August. I also have a contact who owns a bunch of timeshares in high end resorts who will be willing to rent them out for payment in TOUR when there is enough buying pressure to ensure he can cash out efficiently. I would say that with luck, some investors and a year to work on it we will have a bunch of good options available and a strong price point that we can build on to further the project and the quality and quantity of the accomodation options available through it.

And we are about to start a 1M banner impression campaign with them.

We've seen a strong upturn in price from around 250 sats to around 800 sats in the last few days as a result of the listing, and we are hoping to see further upward movement when the banner ads kick in.
