1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: 🔥⭐[ANN] CROWDHOLDING ICO - Launching 1st of November⭐🔥 on: November 24, 2017, 05:24:37 PM
Hi Dev,
you write that you will create alternative financing platforms. What do you have in mind? Is this an additional opportunity for investors to participate in the project? If so, how?

Hello @crypto_enthusiast

This is what the plan is. Our roadmap includes launching a possibility for businesses to raise capital on crowdholding.com; In the future, businesses can share a piece of their future revenue and receive in exchange investments from the public. The people that invest in the businesses will receive a piece of the company's revenue for a certain period of time determined in advance by the business.

Only YUPIE token holders will be allowed to participate in the revenue-sharing alternative financing platform. Thus, it is like a special pass to invest in company's future revenue.

Let’s suppose that your tokens will appear on large-value exchanges. Will those who have acquired them obtain information about the field of business in which these tokens were invested?


Token holders who acquired YUPIE tokens will have complete transparency regarding the token movement. There will be publicly accessible account on crowdholding.com where such information will be presented. But please allow me to understand your point better, is information about token movement sufficient? What other information should we hold? Do you thing something like online invoicing or some financial reports would be necessary?

1% is such a small price of your success...

@rhyso, I'm happy to see that you understand that only 1% of all tokens are used for the Bounty Campaigns. However, please bear in mind that 5% is also distributed to the first businesses on Crowdholding. Thus, they will distribute this 5% for bounty campaigns on www.crowdholding.com, so the total given away for bounty is 6% (1% for Crowdholding bounty campaign and 5% for the bounty campaign's of businesses on Crodwdholding)

Keep your ETH, it will have 2 more important updates coming to the platform and those would boost the value of ether even more up.

I've been doing well from altcoin trading, however you need to start with a significant amount of money thus it's easier to grow.

    The Media Publications campaign includes news articles, YouTube videos, and other media. This is a very wide open category where you can be creative and publish almost anywhere, such as on LinkedIn, YouTube, a news site, or just about anywhere that people will see it.

    All submissions will be graded for quality, message, and reach. *Industry professionals may contact us in confidence.

    Quality

    Quality is for the quality of the submission. For example, blog posts must be reasonably free of grammar and spelling errors, while videos must have decent production value, e.g. good audio quality. Submissions that fall below acceptable quality criteria will be rejected.

    We expect that you've created a positive image for Open Source University. The Project has substantial advancements and innovations, and isn’t just another “me too” project.

    That being said, some points in your message that you may want to include are:

    • Skills and qualifications together in one place on the blockchain
    • Changing the way businesses hire
    • Comparison to traditional resumes
    • Education beyond institutional and national borders changing traditional university education
    • Changes in corporate learning and development
    • and more...

    The white paper covers many more topics that you may wish to include in your message. You don’t need to cover technical details, but your message needs to be positive.

    Reach

    Reach is graded according to how many people you can reach. For example, a YouTube channel with 100 subscribers will not receive as high a grade for Reach as one with 100,000 subscribers, etc. To increase your reach score, you may wish to promote your article or video on Twitter, Facebook, various forums, etc. Don’t spam to promote your article though. Use good judgement. Also, when submitting your finished article, include links where you have promoted it so that we can give you a higher score.

    Reach is probably the most important criteria.

    Professional journalists, bloggers, YouTubers, and other new media professionals are encouraged to participate. Feel free to contact us directly.

    Campaign Rewards

    The rewards will vary, but will be based on the following general guidelines.

    Low quality/reach: 5 to 10 shares
    Average reward: 50 shares

    17  Economy / Economics / Re: Bitcoin can not replace fiat on: November 13, 2017, 03:22:22 PM
    Bitcoins were designed to be – and, in many ways, are – the perfect digital currency: they’re frictionless, anonymous, and cryptographically astonishingly secure. For anybody who’s ever suffered the incompetence of a bank, or bristled at the fees involved in just spending money, either domestically or abroad – that is to say, for all of us – the promise of bitcoin is the holy grail of payments. Especially since, to all intents and purposes, bitcoins are invisible to law enforcement and the taxman.

    Those strengths are also weaknesses. No one wants to risk losing millions of dollars worth of currency overnight, just because they were outsmarted by some computer hacker.

    Chances are that governments will want to control monetary policy "manually" (politically), as opposed to let math do the decisions for them.

    That would mean for governments to give up the crucially important power to willfully control wealth distribution.

    I see this part by far the biggest hurdle in the future of Bitcoin.

    Although the political slogan in all developed countries is "free market economy" - it is only free, as long as the political elite is free to set the rules. Including monetary policies.

    The technical ingenuity of Bitcoin is that it is a platform, that allows to bypass this nation state government power and control, by connecting citizens directly, anywhere around the globe to vote about the price of a mutually accepted, therefore existing currency, that they can use among each other to trade goods and services - purely on the value that is determined across the globe, real time, by them, the participating individual citizens.

    The implication of this is hard to overestimate.

    Bitcoin is the first mover in the market and there is no reason to believe that Bitcoin will not be a leader over the next decade because the growth of this market has inherent positive feed-back loops.

    As the market grows in size the developers who believe in the durability of Bitcoin in the long term have more funds, and time to invest in technological improvements.

    19  Economy / Economics / Re: Is it better to save money or invest it? on: November 13, 2017, 03:21:41 PM
    Currently there is a high bar to get money exchanged into and out of Bitcoin. It’s a mess: costly, time consuming and a big hassle. Seriously! Have you tried using an exchange? Even the most trusted one (Coinbase of San Francisco) makes it incredibly difficult to get money in and out of BTC. Fortunately, this situation is gradually improving.

    Where Bitcoin really shines (or more accurately, when it will shine), occurs at the time when more vendors choose to leave revenues in BTC, pending their own purchases from suppliers, shareholder payouts, or simply as retained savings.

    When this happens, all sorts of good things will follow…

    A growing fraction of sellers leave their bitcoin in their wallets, realizing that they will need to spend it for their own labor and materials.
    Gradually, wild exchange-rate gyrations diminish—not because fewer people are exchanging money, but because the Bitcoin supply/demand value is driven more by actual commerce than it is by speculation.
    Sellers begin pricing merchandise in Bitcoin rather than legacy units (i.e. national currencies)—because they are less anxious to exchange out of BTC immediately after each sale.
    When sellers begin letting a fraction of bitcoin revenues ride—and as they begin pricing goods and services in BTC—a phenomenal tipping point will follow…

    If goods and services are priced in BTC, then everyone involved saves money and engages in transactions more efficiently.
    If goods and services are priced in BTC, then the public will begin to perceive exchange rate volatility as a changing dollar rather than a changing bitcoin.
    If buyers also begin to save their BTC (i.e. they do not worry about immediately moving it back to national currency), it means that Bitcoin is being perceived as a stored value—not just an exchange chit. That may seem to be a subtle footnote, but the ramifications are earth shaking. That earthquake is the world gradually moving away from centralized treasury-issued bank notes and toward a unified currency that we can all trust.
    People, everywhere, will one day place their trust in a far more robust and worthy mechanism than paper promissory notes printed by transient, regional governments—governments that turn on the printing press or borrow from unborn generations whenever they have a shortfall. That’s where Bitcoin comes in. It is a brilliantly crafted mechanism that is fully distributed, p2p, transaction verified (yet private), has a capped supply and is secure. And it has already achieved a two-sided network.
