1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / MVP vs. POC: A ICO, Startup Launch Strategy Guide on: August 09, 2018, 06:50:50 PM
Very interesting article I stumbled across, thought I'd share it.

What do all startups dream about? Gaining success is the first thing for any entrepreneur no matter if he sleeps or awake. The market becomes more and more saturated with time, and making the product perfect is the number one goal on the preparation stage.

If you’re about to build a new genius idea, take care of your airbag — it could be an MVP and a POC of your product. These two methods are used in app development all the time, and you might want to know what’s so special about them. Today, we’re here to tell you everything from the ground up.

At TecSynt, we’ve got some tips taken from our own experience about the importance of both MVP and POP, and we truly think this knowledge is worth sharing.

Proof of Concept (POC): Be Sure You Chose the Right Way
Building and launching a new product take much of your time and creativity. It’s great to know that your idea is really worth sharing and further development, isn’t it? That’s when you should turn to the POC (Proof of Concept).

Proof of Concept is all about testing an idea and making conclusions about its viability on the market. POC will only give you the “yes” or “no” answer, but it’s really helpful for lots of entrepreneurs. Even when the answer is “no”, it’s possible to find a better way from the same starting point.At first, you may think that not every project needs the POC stage. But it’s only partially true. These are two important points for your consideration:

An intensive competition doesn’t require extra testing. It may seem so because there are lots of similar products having the same idea in its core. For instance, we’re talking about messaging apps. Creators of such apps don’t need to prove that this idea is worth working on. They can spend their time researching the market, learning more about mistakes and successful stories of competitors. But as often happens, there’s something more to think about.
Your product needs to stand out. Another side of the competitive market game is difficulties in user attraction. If you’re about to start working on the messaging app, there should be some space for unique features to attract potential customers. This is where POC becomes your concern and necessity.
In any case, we recommend you opt for POC beginning of your project. These are the main questions you should ask yourself with the help of professional technicians:

1. The existence of demand. The demand for your product can be latent or really existing on the market right now. People should be interested in your product for you to move forward.

2. Create the product people are waiting for. Do the features of your product are appealing for you or your future customers? The right strategy is to look at your app with the user’s eyes.

3. Measure the product growth. Can you tell now whether your application will be mass-produced or growing gradually with your business? If this question is too difficult, cancel the next steps.

4. Monetizing strategy. There are several ways to monetize your app, but if your product doesn’t fit any of them, it is a warning sign for your business.

5. The level of flexibility. On this stage, you have to think how adaptive your app will be when people’s needs change. The market environment is highly variable, and it gladly welcomes only flexible solutions.

Minimum Viable Product (MVP): Your Idea in a Nutshell
No matter how big your idea is, it must find its embodiment sooner or later. On this stage, you should remember that even the greatest ways started with the first few steps. We recommend you gather your first steps in an MVP (Minimum Viable Product).

Minimum Viable Product is your basic idea wrapped up in the number of essential features. It is important for the startup strategy as it allows learning more about the product with less effort.
MVP helps to answer the most important questions about your project, so the focus here is on your vision vs. your target audience. You should know that the value of your product meets the user’s expectations. This is what you will find out:

The usefulness of your product for the target audience.
How the final user likes both your idea and its embodiment.
Defects emerging in the user flow.
The attractiveness of the user interface.
Whether all key features are really necessary or not.
Any additional features that should be implemented as soon as possible.
All of this knowledge is precious for your further activities in the product creation. But how to build the MVP that would really work for your business and bring you all the necessary information? This is what we suggest you consider:

Define your goal. We know that your idea takes all of your thoughts (or at least many of them). What we ask you here is to gather these thoughts into a specific goal clear for the team of developers — they should know what exactly they’re creating.
Don’t let your focus blur. As you want everything to be perfect, it’s very tempting to make the list of initial features endless. But don’t fall in that trap! You can forever stay on the development stage with a bunch of useless functionality. Only the basic features here — remember that.
Don’t wait too long on the stage of design. We have no doubts that design is a vital part for your MVP where each detail is important. But here’s another trap — the longer you work on the perfect look of your app, the more time you lose. The MVP concept was invented to quickly bring the primary results, so the perfect design can wait.
Show them what you’ve got. As soon as you have an MVP ready to be used, present it to the audience. Don’t hesitate and don’t think that lots of things could be done. If customers like your MVP, you’ll get lots of space for your creativity. But for now, only your core proposition matters.
Don’t ever forget about the users. Yes! People love your product, and they want to see more. This is when you can think about additional features and a more sophisticated design. And, of course, consider all of the opinions coming from the audience — only working in collaboration with users will lead you to the advancement.

POC vs. MVP: One Continues Another
It’s already obvious that both POC and MVP are important parts of the startup marketing strategy. To quickly regain everything we’ve mentioned today, let’s take a look at this small cheat sheet.

POC vs. MVP


You can’t replace one concept with another, and you can also get some priceless knowledge when using both of them.

Small but Precious Primary Steps
We’ve all been at the beginning of the complicated something. Fortunately, when it comes to software development projects, you already know what to do. Firstly, you’ve got the POC aspect, testing your first thoughts and ideas. Secondly, you will deal with an MVP, which is the core idea coming to life. Even the best mobile product starts little, so don’t wait much time to hit the road.

Our Chain in Chain solution
With implementation proof of relay
With implementation of proof of relay
Increases 200times
Scalability =200* base of protocol
for example even if Ethereum implemented POS
Our scalability is 200 times as well

FundersToken is a one-stop solution in adopting Blockchain Technology for Customer Relationship Management and business augmentation.
“Smart Token, the Token with Logic.”The FsTK Engine enables corporates to▫ DIY own Smart Tokens▫ Deliver products or services via Smart Vouchers▫ Create Tokenized business model with Smart Contracts while little or no coding is necessary.

FundersToken Focus using Tokenization to enable clients to deliver value to Funders, and break down Blockchain elements to make future application achievable (Trend and future driven)

FundersToken provides business-oriented CRM tools by deploying smart tokens and smart contracts on Ethereum with modularised functions.
With modularization, FsTK have been developing every feature that has a strong and positive effect on our current and futuristic users.
All modularized functions powered by FsTK's engine are special and unique. The combinations and purposes of these functions are logical for applications and technically advanced.
From Github or Etherscan, FsTK's technology profundity would be 4-5 times stronger. FsTK smart contracts are done by 100% for basic features with better efficiency and faster launching platform
Sample Business Model: When people with memberships watch the video, they get rewarded tokens. Coding with FsTK Engine with only JavaScript (API): When client applies for membership, a Smart Voucher will be embedded to the account wallet. When the account with Smart Voucher activate the action “Watched Video”, then LOCATE the corresponding Smart Voucher. Once the wallet it located, system will AIRDROP the rewards automatically.
1. FsTK is closer to the real business world.
2. FsTK is more applicable in being AWS or becoming Microsoft.
3. FsTK can support more diverse industries (AI, IoT, SmartCity.)
4. FsTK may be more expensive at the beginning but can take proper cases to face the change in the upcoming trend.
5. FsTK's API/ABI/SDK is more logical and supportive, also referring to potential government actions in assurance.
6. FsTK features are more scalible and integrated
7. More value is delivered to our clients and more profitable.
8. FsTKs engine not only increases the user for the Blockchain protocol (Ethereum), but the real application on it.
9. FsTK modularization makes FsTK easier in the future to adapt to different Blockchains with high level benefits.
10.FsTK has the chance to create “Chain Offerings” by moving FsTKs engine to the permission chain and take large scale projects.
11.FsTK can offer new protocols for interchain based on our modules and logics (smart onion), the business model also makes them closer to create real sharding (Ethereum has the difficulty in identify key node and node environment, they have business level clients and end-user structure). The algorithm is in the vault and for speed up with costing down the transaction on chain.
12. Advisors include Chinese connections, French connections and SG connections in adapting our permission chain solution.
13. When FsTK has a new chain, then a new type of Mining is possible to make FSTk grow better in price, and also support the speed and cost issue in Blockchain. Tech team creates consensus level code can mock up protocol. So people can mine your token (the miner supports business to pay ETH in operation then gets business smart token). This creates a different level of sharing economy and decreases the risk for business to run blockchain applications.

FSTK:
(1. Easy and simply access to tokenization applications)So first of all, our Smart Token platform, we think people should be able to get the access to tokenization  applications easily so with our modules, with our FundersToken Smart Token platform, as the back office to control everything and to manage those API, ABI stuff. These modules actually help current business who need the blockchain applications can directly use it and don’t have to think about how to get the technical supply or recruit new blockchain developers or manage those people or understand that. Because we modularized it, we make it understandable and logical. So you can understand the value of it. You can think about what it can really be used in your actual running business and into operations. Do whatever you are good at. That’s really important. We make our clients to enlarge their scales, focus their value and deliver something they couldn’t do before and adopt the newest technology with benefits. So that’s the first year strategic milestone of the first year.

(2. Owning the benefit of permission chain )
The second year is to make these things become larger because the module is set. So the combination and the understanding of modules will go deeper. We want people to use these modules to set up their permissioned chain in their company or in their company alliance. For permissioned chain, people can gather up together and to do cross- party management. To set up all those things, we need to amend a lot of things so we can use the modules to create new application level. People can download and use minor coding skill. They don’t have to code a lot. They just need to like taking out the Lego pieces to create their own permissioned chain easily.
Again , talk about the business more than talk about the coding.
Coding is critical and vital but not everything for your business and it shouldn’t be everything for your business.

(3. All services become package)The 3rd part is to make it a software. After these 3 years, begin from the 3 years, we hope, we can make everything become software. Apparently, it’s very easy. Download, use it , settle, install. We wish that to be that  simple because at the beginning we look like Oracle, like SAP, like IBM to set up the consult you, advise you, support you. You know how to use it but you still have to pay a lot of attentions to do a little bit coding on it. But second year, we will move into more like AWS. Everything is instructedin structure. Everything is clear and clean. You know how to manage it. You just need a original IT teammates, they know how to do it. API could be the JavaScript base again.
3rd part is we want to become very similar like Microsoft then we can really can achieve that scale. Because people can download Microsoft office 365 and use it.
So everyone wants to set up permissioned chain, imagine just download the package, install it, create the multiple signature and you can add new people in. You don’t worry about FundersToken controlling you, FundersToken will upgrade update the new features and you just need to pay and add it in. If it’s in the package, maybe you don’t need to pay extra and just take it in. So it becomes very native and organic into our business behaviors afterwards to. To set up this technology become much easier, clearer and meet the your business goals.

1) The signed agreement from BeeToken is sent to my inbox yesterday. CEO of BeeToken is now on board on FundersToken as an advisor ! :fire:

2) FundersToken Targets
There are 2 product line in the FundersToken platform , our engine and our modules for permission chain which is only for large enterprises.

For our engine, we currently focuses on hospitalilty groups to showcase our CRM capability. This is also the traditional market,  our strategy in Japan is to set up referral partners with website building / tech providing companies. So that they can take care of the ICO page and connecting APIs.

VCs : To tokenize their fund and also to leverage their connection to reach out to techy startups regardless of their field.

Smartcash is one my favs. I have no affiliation with them, and this is not investment advice. I'd just like to know if there are more coins like this that pay you out every money for just holding their coins in the smarcash wallet.

I guess I caught the news late. Was this confirmed? I usually do my due dil, but this ridiculous news was not worth my time to look into.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Does anyone play cryptokitties? Comon guys, be honest. on: April 18, 2018, 02:14:39 PM
I was wondering if anyone plays? It's a good way earn ETH as well by breeding and selling them. DM if you play.
9  Economy / Trading Discussion / Guys, just hold.. We can agree on a few things. on: April 02, 2018, 01:17:00 AM
None of us, has a crystal ball and we're not all-in on the tech, we are emotional individuals and we've been financially attacked.   Angry

If the majority of us were looking at the same chart and a general direction of the market, guess who will see that, and take advantage when opportunity awaits. It's the seasoned vets. They've been there, done that. The finance guys shorting the markets for a living. We could argue speculation, math and politics all day long, but, what's been done has been done. None of us have crystal balls. One instrument we access to is past history. We can see that they are real numbers. But they are in the past for everyone else to see.. I want to quote a few of Warren Buffett's quotes that came up in my mind when people were panicking.

"The investors of today does not profit from yesterday's growth." "Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree along time ago."

"What we learn from history is that people don't learn from history." When investors get either too fearful or too greedy, they sometimes hide behind the notion that "This time it's different." Usually they regret it.

"If past history was all there, the richest people would be librarians."

You can teach risk management, but you can't teach balls. It's definitely going to be harder to grow your investments in this space. My personal advice would be to hold. I don't know where you got in or out, but eventually, you will learn from your mistakes and you will have that much more knowledge in the next run. I hope this helps
10  Economy / Trading Discussion / The market is not designed to be predictable. Or is it? on: March 31, 2018, 09:32:49 AM
I've called this 2 years ago on my facebook. There were no signs of any regulations back then. Smart money (banks, wall st) came into the scene and rek everyone. Hell, we could even be in a recession after this. So what are your options? Just simply hold. Get a job and forget about your assets. You shouldn't have risked more then you were willing to lose anyway. Money is a very sensitive topic for most, but if you can control your emotions, and simply hold without paying attention to your investments, you should be fine. We all know the markets are rigged and ran by bot algos. Just hold your positions fellas, you don't lose anything until you sell.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / - My List Of 60+ ICO rating / checking / due dil websites on: March 29, 2018, 02:22:56 AM
Here are a list I personally compiled over the months. I'd like to share this information with everyone to help do their own due dil. If I'm missing any sites, please list them below. I'd like to help spread awareness so individuals do not get scammed. Keep in mind, there are some scam projects listed on some of these sites that are rated high (ICObench for example) so it's best to really take your time and do thorough research on other platforms when investing in ICO's. I'm currently advising a handful of projects as well, don't worry guys, I won't shill them here. My objective is to keep your guys investments safe!

12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / G20 Meeting Discusses About Possible Cryptocurrency Policy on: March 28, 2018, 04:03:51 PM
Bradley Johnson -
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – A recent G20 meeting took place in Buenos Aires to talk about a possible global policy on cryptocurrency. The meeting was attended by most member nations except for Switzerland, Singapore, Gibraltar, and Bermuda – nations that are most vocal as blockchain-friendly jurisdictions.

In the meeting, the international forum discussed about possible models that can guide the cryptocurrency industry.

John Collins, president of consulting firm Red Flag USA and Coinbase’s former head of policy for crypto exchange, cited the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). FATF is an intergovernmental body committed to fight money laundering and terrorism financing.

During the G20 meeting, the nations said they will implement the standards of FATF as these standards also apply to cryptoassets.

Nations which are found to be uncooperative with FATF standards may face being blacklisted. It will also become harder for the citizens of that nation to open bank accounts in foreign countries and send money abroad, and they would be paying higher interests in finances.

However, AML lawyer in Canada, Christine Duhaime, said that the G20 is taking a circular approach when applying these general standards meant for traditional financial system to a completely different world like cryptocurrency.

The G20 meeting concluded that cryptocurrencies needed to be examined. In a press conference by Federico Sturzenegger, Argentina’s central bank chief, he said that the member nations agreed that they still need more information about the industry before they can give their recommendations. The international forum set a deadline in July to decide on what data are needed.

They also tackled the recommendation of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to apply tax consequences to cryptocurrencies.

Collins said that it is theoretically possible to have a global policy on cryptocurrency, but its success will depend on the business model. However, Collins also recognized that cryptocurrency is more difficult compared to other industries because its core goal is decentralizing power structures.

Collins added that in crafting a global policy, it is important to consider the entry and exit points of cryptocurrency to the financial system. Thus, crypto business might lead to a new paradigm that these leaders in the G20 meeting need to address head on.
13  Local / 한국어 (Korean) / In South Korea, the biggest crypto investors are around 20 years old on: March 27, 2018, 08:28:39 AM
According to the South Korean news agency Yonhap, the main crypto-currency investors in the country are approximately 20 years old. The result is not surprising and corroborates the idea that younger generations prefer to invest in this new industry at the expense of traditional stocks and bonds.

The Korea Financial Investor Protection Foundation interviewed 2,530 people between the ages of 25 and 64. Of the investors in crypto-coins, 22.7% are 20 years old; followed by buyers of 30 years, which correspond to 19.3%.

The ones that invest the least in this virtual modality are people in the 60s, with 10.5%, and 50 years corresponding to 8.2% of the total.

However, the buyers of 60 years were those who applied a larger amount of money, equivalent to $ 6,199 million. By comparison, young 20-year-old investors spent $ 2,724 million.

In the overall assessment, 70.2% of respondents purchased crypto-coins as an investment medium, while 34.1% used the asset to pay for goods and services.

In addition to South Korea, venture capital firm Blockchain Capital interviewed more than 2,000 US residents aged 18-34 in November 2017.

The result showed that 30 percent "prefers to invest a thousand dollars in Bitcoin than the same thousand dollars in stocks or government bonds," but only 2 percent of them had already dived into the sea of crypto-coins.

The director general of Blockchain Capital, Spence Bogart, said that "the research results reinforce our belief in the massive opportunity ahead of Bitcoin."

Another survey conducted in December 2017 by the London Block - an exchange of cryoptomes based in England - showed that of the 2,000 Britons approached, 5% of them, under the age of 45, declared themselves to be crypto-currency investors.

The survey also points out that 11% want to invest in crypto-coins this year.

한국의 통신사에 따르면 연합 왕국의 주요 암호화 통화 투자자는 약 20 세입니다. 그 결과는 놀라운 것이 아니며 젊은 세대가 전통적인 주식과 채권을 희생하여이 새로운 산업에 투자하는 것을 선호한다는 아이디어를 뒷받침합니다.

한국 금융 투자자 보호 재단은 25 ~ 64 세 사이에 2,530 명의 사람들을 인터뷰했다. 암호 동전의 투자자 중 22.7 %는 20 세이며, 그 다음으로 30 년의 구매자가 19.3 %에 해당한다.

이 가상 양식에 가장 적게 투자하는 사람들은 60 대가 10.5 %이고 50 년이 8.2 %에 해당합니다.

그러나 60 세의 구매자는 6,199 백만 달러에 상당하는 더 많은 돈을 신청 한 사람들이었습니다. 이에 비해 젊은 20 세의 투자자들은 27 억 2,400 만 달러를 썼다.

전반적인 평가에서 응답자의 70.2 %는 투자 자금으로 암호화 동전을 구입했으며, 34.1 %는 자산 및 서비스 비용을 지불하기 위해 자산을 사용했습니다.

한국 이외에 벤처 캐피털 회사 인 Blockchain Capital은 2017 년 11 월 18-34 세의 미국 거주자 2,000 명을 인터뷰했습니다.

그 결과, 30 %는 "Bitcoin에 주식 또는 정부 채권에 1,000 달러를 투자하는 것보다 천 달러를 투자하는 것을 선호하지만, 그 중 2 %만이 이미 암호 동전의 바다로 뛰어 들었습니다.

Spence Bogart의 Blockchain Capital 사무 총장은 "연구 결과는 Bitcoin을 앞두고 엄청난 기회에 대한 우리의 믿음을 강화시킨다"고 말했다.

2017 년 12 월 영국의 Cryoptomes를 교환 한 런던 블록 (London Block)이 실시한 또 다른 설문 조사에 따르면 영국인 2,000 명 중 5 %가 45 세 미만이 자신을 암호화 통화 투자자라고 선언했다.

이 조사는 또한 11 %가 올해에 암호 동전에 투자하기를 원한다고 지적합니다.

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / CoinMarketCap manipulates the market? (Not FUD) on: March 25, 2018, 09:00:38 AM
https://medium.com/@coinmarketcapped/

An interesting article I picked up on medium. Disclaimer -  This is not my content. I have no affiliation with the content, just sharing what's been out there in public in case you guys missed it.

CoinMarketCap.com is LYING to everyone while profiting from it.
It has come to our attention that CoinMarketCap.com, the Number 1 website in the crypto-currency industry, is showing immensely fraudulent and scam information (on purpose) to its users. As a site that is used frequently for reference points by many news organisations, trading outlets, companies, informational sites and individuals, we thought it would be in the best interest of the community to write about what has been really going on with this “trusted resource”.

Please note, our research indicates that multiple attempts to fix information by many coins on CoinMarketCap.com through contacting them through their support requests or online social media sites such as BitcoinTalk.org, reddit.com and other places has gone unanswered, ignored and/or explicitly overlooked/denied. By explicitly overlooked/denied, we mean that after contacting their support with up-to date and obviously correct information, they refuse to update the data. Many hundreds of coins on CMC are affected very negatively (or positively) by this. A lot of them have given up trying to get CMC to put correct data on their site, and have made sticky posts in their own respective forums as to this issue instead.

We also believe that there is massive insider trading going on with the employees, owners and others involved with CoinMarketCap. Our research, including talking to multiple coin creators, shows anomalous buying of coins between times that the coin creators asked CMC to list their coin (through their google form) and between when it actually gets listed on the site. This could mean that CMC insiders know that certain coins will pump, and go on a buying spree to front-run the listing of the coin and the public market sentiment. This can be seen over and over again when analysing the action on coins when being listed.

Pump and dumps are also being actively allowed and managed by the team at CMC without the knowledge of the coin creators or coin communities themselves. This can be seen by the direct manipulation of the circulating supply of some coins. CMC puts the circulating supply as very high at certain points (increasing the market cap), then drops it down to a much lower number later (lowering the market cap). This moves these coins up or down their numbered list causing massive buys and sell offs at the whim of CMC. Luckily this fraud can only be made to happen once or twice with each coin as the public outcry from the coin communities (sometimes) usually puts an end to it one way or other.

There is also evidence of CoinMarketCap effectively “killing” off coins as it sees fit. How does it “kill” a coin? Well it removes it’s circulating supply to “?” or a very low number arbitrarily, and keeps it there for a prolonged period. As the coin goes lower and lower in the rankings, daily volume on the coin dies off until such a time that it is zero (even though the teams behind the coins are still active and growing their ecosystems). This leads to exchanges delisting the coin, and the ecosystem being entirely dead after a period of time. There is plenty of evidence of coin communities complaining and coin creators “begging” CMC to update their information with no luck. CMC literally decides which coin lives or dies with it’s own agendas. In defence of CMC, some coins do lose their circulating supply due to faults of the coins (the data end-points for circulating supply stop working on the servers provided initially by the coins), but many are brought down even with the objections and outcry of the coin creators and communities behind them.

Also of concern is the possible bribery of CMC officials and other nefarious behaviours that could very obviously be extrapolated from their current actions. What if one coin paid a handsome sum to CMC to make sure a “competitor” would have lower market cap? How do you make them have a lower market cap? Easy, refuse to update the circulating supply to what the real numbers are and instead show an arbitrary number of their choosing. This can also be seen on many of the coins listed on CMC. There is ample evidence of coins complaining publicly on many forums yet CMC taking it’s own numbers without any explanation or acknowledgement.

Another area of concern is the outdated/incorrect information of many of the coins listed on CMC. Official coin links being broken or unresponsive, including the main websites, wrong daily volumes (not updated in days or weeks), and hugely different circulating supplies (from those you can officially see on the respective blockchains of the coins themselves) are just some of the additional problems that ring alarm bells with us.

Because of these issues, (and many others including the pseudonymous nature of the founders and team members) we believe it is in the best interest of the entire community to get behind this initiative and make big noise until such a time that CoinMarketCap updates their site to show correct information, or another resource is created/promoted that shows correct and up-to date data on their website. Number 1 can go down to Number 0 very quickly in the space with the right community backlash.

Some may say that these issues may be due to incompetence of the team at CMC or them having limited resources. One of the parts of our analysis will take a much closer look at what kind of income CoinMarketCap really makes. You would be surprised. CMC is one of the most profitable businesses in the entire industry. The user is the product. The ads are the money maker. There are backroom deals, and much more happening beyond the scenes that the public does not know.

Most people here are concerned about centralised mining cartels, hardware producers, banks, governments, regulators and/or core developers being points of issues in this industry. We strongly believe that none of those come even close to comparing to the obvious fraud that has been going on at CoinMarketCap for many years.

The volume of money that is traded on information taken from CMC alone pales every other issue into oblivion. If traders are making buys and sells according to falsified data on CoinMarketCap.com, then they are being manipulated and lied to in one of the biggest frauds in the entire crypto-currency space.

We’re not just shocked at the level of incompetence, negligence, fraud, and outright lying that CMC perpetuates, but at the lack of information about this so far in this industry. For a community that prides itself on self-regulation through transparency and openness, it should be ashamed at not having blown this massive fraud into the public eye much sooner.

We owe it to the community to make sure resources (especially the Number 1 site in the industry) are not being placed in positions to freely commit fraud on this scale ever again.

Because of the importance of this topic, we are not just going to make comments, we will provide proof. Please wait on the follow up posts for more information. This has been a very intense effort in data gathering, reporting and analysis, so we will provide irrefutable proof of at least some of the fraudulent actions of CoinMarketCap in follow up articles.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for some eye-opening information. We hope this series of posts gets the attention that it deserves. Only then will CMC clean up their act. We hope.

This could be the next big super platform. I don't own any myself, but it has its ups and downs.
1.) it's still new and there has not been any platforms on top of its platform compared to ETH
2.) As an investment point of view, I think it's overvalued
3.) Weak github
4.) The coin itself has needs a lot of improvment and the transaction speed is slow
5.) They have a lot of hype around it, this could be good and bad.

I know there are a few iv'e briefly seen on ads. But where are the other alternatives? I know there is a Robot collectible. Are there more like those ones? Are they profitable?  Do share!

FundersToken (FsTK)
Platform: Ethereum
Type: ERC20


https://www.fstk.io/  https://t.me/FundersToken_community

FundersToken is a one-stop solution in adopting Blockchain Technology for Customer Relationship Management and business augmentation.
“Smart Token, the Token with Logic.”The FsTK Engine enables corporates to▫ DIY own Smart Tokens▫ Deliver products or services via Smart Vouchers▫ Create Tokenized business model with Smart Contracts while little or no coding is necessary.

FundersToken Focus using Tokenization to enable clients to deliver value to Funders, and break down Blockchain elements to make future application achievable (Trend and future driven)

FundersToken provides business-oriented CRM tools by deploying smart tokens and smart contracts on Ethereum with modularised functions.
With modularization, FsTK have been developing every feature that has a strong and positive effect on our current and futuristic users.
All modularized functions powered by FsTK's engine are special and unique. The combinations and purposes of these functions are logical for applications and technically advanced.
From Github or Etherscan, FsTK's technology profundity would be 4-5 times stronger. FsTK smart contracts are done by 100% for basic features with better efficiency and faster launching platform
Sample Business Model: When people with memberships watch the video, they get rewarded tokens. Coding with FsTK Engine with only JavaScript (API): When client applies for membership, a Smart Voucher will be embedded to the account wallet. When the account with Smart Voucher activate the action “Watched Video”, then LOCATE the corresponding Smart Voucher. Once the wallet it located, system will AIRDROP the rewards automatically.
1. FsTK is closer to the real business world.
2. FsTK is more applicable in being AWS or becoming Microsoft.
3. FsTK can support more diverse industries (AI, IoT, SmartCity.)
4. FsTK may be more expensive at the beginning but can take proper cases to face the change in the upcoming trend.
5. FsTK's API/ABI/SDK is more logical and supportive, also referring to potential government actions in assurance.
6. FsTK features are more scalible and integrated
7. More value is delivered to our clients and more profitable.
8. FsTKs engine not only increases the user for the Blockchain protocol (Ethereum), but the real application on it.
9. FsTK modularization makes FsTK easier in the future to adapt to different Blockchains with high level benefits.
10.FsTK has the chance to create “Chain Offerings” by moving FsTKs engine to the permission chain and take large scale projects.
11.FsTK can offer new protocols for interchain based on our modules and logics (smart onion), the business model also makes them closer to create real sharding (Ethereum has the difficulty in identify key node and node environment, they have business level clients and end-user structure). The algorithm is in the vault and for speed up with costing down the transaction on chain.
12. Advisors include Chinese connections, French connections and SG connections in adapting our permission chain solution.
13. When FsTK has a new chain, then a new type of Mining is possible to make FSTk grow better in price, and also support the speed and cost issue in Blockchain. Tech team creates consensus level code can mock up protocol. So people can mine your token (the miner supports business to pay ETH in operation then gets business smart token). This creates a different level of sharing economy and decreases the risk for business to run blockchain applications.
