3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / To expand into the NFT space, STPT acquired part of top Korean digital platform on: March 26, 2021, 06:05:10 AM
Standard Tokenization Protocol has acquired part of top Korean digital content platform Piction Network to expand into the NFT (Non-Fungible Token) sector. Piction Network is a peer to peer digital content platform that facilitates the issuance and trading of digital cartoons, dramas, movie, games and music.

STP will help with NFT integration into the Piction Network platform that will bring on a whole new segment for its users and community. Piction has already established partnerships with Axie Infinity, Cross, PICA and acquired Gallery Finance to build a decentralized NFT marketplace.

NFT’s sales have totaled hundreds of millions of dollars this past year which highlights the massive opportunity for Piction in the Asia market. Additionally, STP will help expand the Piction Network platform, community and brand globally across China, Southeast Asia and US/Europe greatly enhancing its exposure and visibility around the world.

NFTs are largely being considered by companies now, and are now starting to integrate it into their existing systems.

Will we see more acquisitions soon?
4  Other / Serious discussion / First U.S. public company to mine BTC staked $5m in ETH 2.0 as digital asset tre on: March 12, 2021, 07:16:10 AM
An early pioneer in blockchain technology, BTCS in 2014 was the first U.S. public company to mine bitcoin. Then, in 2017, BTCS created a first of its kind digital asset treasury strategy which is now being widely employed by companies such as Tesla, Square, and MicroStrategy. Now, BTCS is the first U.S. public company to run validator nodes on ethereum 2.0. We see this strategy as driving strong near-term revenue growth with the added benefit of being more profitable than traditional bitcoin mining while also enabling additional future revenue-generating services. 

Over seven years as a public company, BTCS has been on the cutting edge of the blockchain technology sector,” said Charles Allen, Chief Executive Officer of BTCS. “Now we have a balance sheet with over $2.8 million in cash and approximately $9 million in crypto-currencies to execute on our vision.

“Our transaction verification services operation should drive strong near-term revenue growth,” continued Allen. “We believe in the future of ‘smart-crypto’ and see ethereum, which is transitioning to a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm, as the flagship of smart-crypto blockchains. Less resource intensive than proof-of-work verification services, proof-of-stake validation provides attractive economics. Our goal is to build a growing network of BTCS actively operated validators, ultimately positioning us to offer additional services in the future.”

IMO, I'm glad that the time has finally come where institutions and publicly traded companies are already seeing crypto (mainly BTC & ETH) as a digital asset treasury and a better way to put their cash reserves.


Is this a smart move by these companies or is it better to store them in other less-volatile assets?

I think the future is looking bright for NFTs and Gaming in the crypto space. Battle Wave 2323™ is a game that the team developed in order to encourage players to perform liquidity mining by pitting them against each other in competing virtual Pool Armies, as they fight to generate the most liquidity and APY. There are 9 pool armies in total, which are represented by different characters and the top liquidity pools on Uniswap — but only one will come out on top!

This was built on top of Unity (Makers of Fall Guys, Hearthstone, etc.) Will we see more crypto-related games coming from other big sport companies in the future? (EA, Valve, etc.)

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / STP Network to Launch STP 2.0 on Polkadot on: February 02, 2021, 02:53:18 PM
STP Network has announced that its new iteration of its protocol will feature the synthetic tokenization of assets on Polkadot. It will also give users access to multi-chain assets and new financial products on different blockchains, without expensive bridge fees or heavy overcollateralization.

The launch of STP 2.0 is planned for the end of Q1 2021 and the new Standard Tokenization Protocol is expected to be fully functional by Q3 2021.

  • Key features of STP 2.0:
  • Cross-chain tokenization
  • Multi-chain index
  • Built on the Polkadot infrastructure

STP 2.0's new cross-chain tokenization will facilitate the issuance and trading of ST-Assets between major blockchain platforms, providing users with more opportunities in decentralized finance including a wider range of products and increased liquidity.

The new Standard Tokenization Protocol will also allow users to issue and access multi-chain indices that track the performance of a group of assets across multiple blockchain platforms. Users will be able to leverage this index and employ a range of tools to interact with other decentralized protocols, such as automated market makers (AMMs) and lending protocols.

STP 2.0 will be entirely built upon the existing Polkadot platform and will take advantage of its cross-chain capabilities and parachain infrastructure. The goal of this is to allow for increasingly faster and cheaper transactions in the crowded Ethereum ecosystem.


Investors tend to look at Polkadot as the next Ethereum where projects build their network, is it a good direction to go with the Polkadot ecosystem?

10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / What the Bittrex Privacy Coin Delisting Means? on: January 07, 2021, 08:27:57 AM
Bittrex exchange announced just days ago that it plans to remove trading pairs involving the Monero, Zcash, and Dash privacy coins.

The exchange will remove the following markets on Friday, January 15, 2021, at 23:00 UTC.

Bittrex has also announced that its users may receive up to 30 days to withdraw the delisted coins; however, this withdrawal period may be shortened. This has been a somewhat sudden decision, and is actually not in keeping with the sentiment of established and regulatory compliant exchanges such as Gemini and Kraken.

Following the announcement, Gemini CEO Tyler Winklevoss took to Twitter to show his support for Zcash, a privacy protocol with public and private transaction capabilities which shares a similar ethos to our NAV/xNAV coins. Kraken CEO Jesse Powell has also voiced his opinion on Twitter stating that there is little regulatory rationale behind the decision, and the delistings are specific to the business practices of Bittrex exchange.

The exchange saw its application for a virtual currency and money transmitter license being rejected by the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) in April 2019 and one of the reasons given was the failure to meet licensing requirements related to deficiencies in Bittrex’s BSA/AML/OFAC compliance program.

It’s important to note that the NYDFS has cleared the listing of Zcash on exchanges such as Gemini, and the decision by Bittrex does not affect NavCoin in any way. The Perkins-Coie whitepaper featuring privacy by default coins like Monero highlights that regulated entities can remain compliant with anti money laundering (AML) legislations while supporting privacy coins.

As a result, there is a legal framework supporting the listing of privacy coins and these delistings are a decision that is being taken solely by Bittrex exchange. However, we would like to reiterate that initially only the public NAV coin will be traded on centralized exchanges (CEXs).

Read more about the whole article here.

Will this affect the prices of these coins? How will it affect them long-term? Hopefully other exchanges don't do the same thing.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / +22%! Bringing NAV back to the spotlight with NavCoin Core 6.0 release on: December 19, 2020, 07:48:16 PM
This is one of the moonshot stories of the day, the NAV token pumped up by 22% after its announcement of the NavCoin Core 6.0 release.

This new version includes two major protocol updates. xNAV - their new private token, bringing back to NavCoin the long-awaited privacy protocol. This upgrade will protect the NavCoin DAO voting quorums in the case an exchange would decide to enable staking for NAV.

This is not the only new feature coming out, but other changes are also included, like full wallet encryption. I read the whole list of changes here in the release notes. With more than 850,000 new lines of code added, ensuring the quality of the changes was really prioritized. Even an xNAV Testing Bounty program was implemented and new members are joining, helping in the process and reporting the bugs they’ve found.

13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / XEM migration to Symbol phase 1 begins, price eyes $0.17 on: September 26, 2020, 10:55:21 PM
NEM group developers have been working around the clock to ensure that the cryptocurrency migration process to Symbol, a next-generation enterprise-grade blockchain protocol, is smooth. It is essential to note that XEM users, the official token for NEM, will have to get ready for a snapshot that will convert their coins to the new XYM token on a ratio of 1:1.

At the time of writing, NEM (XEM) is trading at $0.1118. The token is still trading a lower high pattern. However, a higher low pattern formed from the beginning of September has formed a symmetrical triangle pattern.

The Relative Strength Index shines a light on the gradual uptrend above the trendline support. Movement of the indicator above 40 and 50 key levels would most-likely signal an increase in buying positions, which may eventually propel XEM above the triangle resistance. If a swell in the volume supports the breakout, NEM could easily climb above $0.14 and $0.17 critical hurdles. In July NEM rallied over 50% and chances are that it can repeat the same spike as long as fundamtal levels continues to improve.

Will this update help us get NEM ($XEM) break past top 20 cmc? I imagine more people acquiring $XEM because of their 1:1 airdrop
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / VR+ Electronic Music + Crypto & Blockchain? on: September 09, 2020, 02:10:29 PM
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensorium Corporation unveiled a first look at PRISM — the world of electronic music within Sensorium Galaxy, the social VR platform supported by Forbes-listed billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, Jay-Z's music streaming service TIDAL, and other renowned global artists and entertainment companies.

Yann Pissenem: "We are creating PRISM for all those who carry the love for electronic music in their hearts. We want the powerful energy of dance floors to be released from the offline spaces into the virtual reality - PRISM is to become a single hub for fans of this genre from all over the world to break free from any physical limitations. We will let the energy of music and the power of sound rule this world, bringing with it an environment into the stages of constant transformation and rebirth, which will and let the users really feel the power of this incredible virtual experience."

And all these, will happen via a payment instrument based on blockchain technology and will be ran through a token.

Are these good use for cryptocurrency/blockchain technology and will these industries and technology mash well?

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Jay-Z bought $7m in tokens for a $100m-backed VR streaming platform on: August 27, 2020, 04:55:20 PM
In June, one of the music industry’s most successful figures, Scooter Braun, joined a $30m funding round in Los Angeles-based virtual concerts startup Wave.

And last August 25, music streaming platform Napster was acquired in a $70m deal by UK-based virtual reality music company MelodyVR, which has staged VR concerts for the likes of Post Malone, John Legend and Khalid.

Today, another intriguing addition to this trend: Jay-Z’s music streaming service, TIDAL, has spent $7 million on tokens (‘SENSO Tokens’) issued by Sensorium Corporation.

Celebrities and other big name players in the music space are getting into crypto and this is a really good sign. Will this overall help wide-spread mass adoption?

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Tencent Builds Blockchain Platform for China’s Oldest Wine Producer on: August 04, 2020, 08:47:45 PM
Chinese tech giant Tencent has revealed its plan for creating a blockchain-based wine traceability platform in collaboration with Changyu, China’s biggest and oldest wine producer, according to local news on July 31. It is said to be a nationwide first for the country’s domestic wine industry.

According to Changyu, the platform is designed to trace every step of the wine-making and sales processes, including planting, brewing, distribution and management. It will issue a unique traceable certificate for each bottle of wine it produces. 

The whole process will be recorded on the blockchain network. The firm’s bottles’ scannable QR codes would allow consumers to verify the authenticity of the wine. The QR code will also present a whole set of data like plantation information of the grape types, origins, rainfall levels, temperature information among other things.

The blockchain network will reportedly help distributors and sales outlets to catch counterfeit bottles and to identify bottles that have failed quality-control tests.

As Cointelegraph previously reported, Symbol from NEM makes blockchain solutions to solve wine tampering and counterfeiting problems to save millions for the wine industry.

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / How can blockchain help amidst the pandemic? on: July 29, 2020, 05:38:41 AM
Because of the pandemic, everyone is almost going digital and we're more prone to cyber-crime, fraud, and possibly scams.

Blockchain technology being seen as a trusted record, a ledger that can never be cheated on, can possibly solve these issues for most of the people. This type of verification also has many other applications, such as making it trivial to verify IDs, university degrees, memberships, and authenticity of artwork or goods. Client apps have already been developed to make these kinds of verification free and easy using web browsers, mobile apps, or desktop apps.

Can blockchain technology be a solution to solve all these crimes that may happen because of the new pandemic reality?
