Tip: Don't join in an ICO when you see a celebrity supporting that ICO.

#TRUTH.

The moment you see Paris Hilton pushing a cryptocurrency, run away.

Paris Hilton is supporting an ICO backed by a man who was convicted of domestic violence

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is anyone working with SAFT ICOs? on: October 27, 2017, 04:52:17 PM
Many people are hoping SAFT will help to solve the issue of regualtions about if a token is a security or not,but to me most of them are security, are investors expecting profit investing into this ICOs or not, the answer is YES, it will be interesting how this goes long term

It doesnt solve the issue. It just addresses some risk involved with presales on non-functional tokens. People can buy collectors items or Art with the expectation of profit. That does not make those securities. Read the whitepaper of the SAFT and my rebuttle herein.

Good point on buying collector items and art for profit... guess I'd better go get that Hulk #181 instead of investing in another ICO.  Grin

Thanks VC!

Also, don't forget that we've gone the extra mile to certify as a SAFT ICO --> düber Technologies Inc. Announces SAFT-based ICO to Transform the Cannabis Industry
https://dubercoin.com/duber-technologies-inc-announces-saft-based-ico-transform-cannabis-industry

SEATTLE, Washington — Oct. 5, 2017 — düber Technologies Inc., a software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider serving the cannabis industry, today announced its Initial Coin Offering (ICO). The Pre-sale will start at 15:01 UTC on Oct 25. The ICO will use a SAFT (Simple Agreement for Future Tokens) structure conducted under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D of Section 4(a)2 of the U.S. Securities Act, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) which accredits token buyers as investors.

The düber token (DBR) is intended to incentivize and improve information exchange in the cannabis community, including consumers, retailers, labs, processors and growers. Examples are rewarding community members for providing product information and photos, submitting product reviews, participation in loyalty programs and interaction with advertising and other communication channels. Blockchain technology will measure and allocate growth in economic surplus throughout the supply chain as a result of increased information exchange across all network participants. The DBR is an Ethereum (ETH) blockchain cryptocurrency that can be used within the network to pay for goods and services provided by licensed cannabis businesses.

“At düber, we believe that we have the unique opportunity to transform the cannabis industry through incentivizing the creation and sharing of information, which benefits all patients, consumers and businesses,” said Glenn Ballman, founder of düber. “We have chosen the SAFT ICO structure, and combined it with a broad-based seeding program to enable a wide distribution of the tokens to members of the cannabis community.”
düber is an emerging leader of technology and services within the cannabis industry. The company provides integrated retailer and supply chain solutions including online ordering, supply chain management, retail automation and advertising and has a healthy track record of growing sales for cannabis retailers.

“We began implementing düber’s technology in 2016 and have seen sales and order sizes increase as customers order online, use self-serve systems located in the store and respond to product advertising,” said Nick Antonie, owner of Herban Legends, Seattle. “We believe in the vision düber has for the future of the industry and appreciate how its technology allows us to deliver a superior customer experience.”
To visit düber’s ICO website, including the white paper and the private placement memorandum prepared in connection with the ICO, visit www.dubercoin.com. The private placement memorandum contains information on the offering, including details on purchaser qualification requirements and risk factors.

Yes! We're not offering this ICO because we're trying to fund a great idea. We're ALREADY profitable and a large business with VC backing. We're offering this token because we believe it's the next, best, step to integrate all verticals of the cannabis industry.

Looking forward to more interactions and your success with our bounty program! LET'S DO THIS!

NOT pump and dump. We're the REAL DEAL --> düber Technologies Inc. Secures Funding for 15 Distribution Centers with $50 Million Dollar Agreement with Vacone Real Estate  Shocked
https://dubercoin.com/duber-technologies-inc-secures-funding-15-distribution-centers-50-million-dollar-agreement-vacone-real-estate

Software-as-a-service provider takes steps to expands its leadership position in the cannabis market by master leasing 400,000 square feet of distribution space in key locations across the U.S.
SEATTLE, Washington — Sept. 26, 2017 — düber Technologies Inc., a software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider serving the cannabis industry, today announced it has signed a $50 million dollar funding agreement with Vacone Real Estate for the acquisition, fit out and master lease for 15 cannabis distribution centers in Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada and Arizona.

Anyone want to invest? Huh -->
The 6 Worst ICO’s of All Time
https://www.coinist.io/6-worst-icos-of-all-time/

POOR RETURNS, FAILED TECHNOLOGY AND OUTRIGHT SCAMS MAKE ICO INVESTORS LEERY
2017 has been a fantastic year for ICOs, and we’ve covered many of biggest and most exciting releases . ICOs have skyrocketed into mainstream prominence. The advantages of ICOs are two-fold; the team gets money fast, investors get tokens early. But the dark side reared its head this year too. Poor returns, failed technology, and outright scams are some of the reasons investors are leery of ICOs. Many have called the ICO trend a bubble, and the SEC has been deliberating cracking down. Below are a few cautionary tales.

1. ONECOIN
One of the worst ICOs of 2017 was OneCoin, a textbook scam from start to finish. OneCoin was a multi-level marketing Ponzi scheme (think Cutco knives). It’s difficult to give more detail, because there’s no information a token was ever created. The team had little concrete to show investors, and certainly no working prototype. Some of the team’s biggest members had previously been linked to other scams. Dr. Ruja Ignatov, founder and COO, may have falsified her qualifications on the company’s website. Speaking of the website, it was a parody of a scam site. Spelling was poor, and technical problems were common. Numerous governments warned against investing. On April 24th, Indian authorities raided a OneCoin meeting. 18 were jailed, but not before OneCoin scammed investors out of 350 million. Tellingly, they accepted funding in standard currency, not Bitcoin or Ethereum like most ICOs. The story was a black eye on the crypto world.

2. ENIGMA
Some crypto scandals aren’t a result of poor intentions; just poor execution. Such was the case for Enigma. Enigma is a security and cryptography coin, that boasted about its new encryption methods. Named after the German encryption machine in World War II, Enigma’s mailing list, website, and Slack accounts were all hacked ahead of the company’s ICO. Hackers used Slack to reach out to investors about a fake early ICO. Some rightly called the email a scam, but many others pulled the trigger, and hackers made off with around $500,000 in Ethereum. Enigma CEO Guy Zizkind’s account was hacked, because he hadn’t set up two-factor authentication. This is a staggering mistake. Two-factor authentication is a common feature on wallets and exchanges, and is regularly emphasized as one of the most important things users can do to protect their coins. The CEO of a security-focused ICO neglecting this is comical. Many prospective investors were scared off for good.

3. DROPLEX
Thankfully for investors, many ICOs barely even put effort into appearing legit. Droplex was a lazy scam attempt that was quickly called out. Droplex’s whitepaper was a carbon copy of QRL’s whitepaper. Literally word for word, but with “Droplex” substituted for the word “QRL.” College kids put more effort into plagiarizing. Droplex’s Github repository was also a direct copy of QRL’s for a while. Once people became aware, they changed it, but they’ve added no new code in months. Fortunately, Droplex was lambasted early and often, and they only made off with around 25K.

4. COINDASH
Another prominent recent hack occurred when someone boosted a$10M off of CoinDash, an Israeli company. The hacking method is uncertain. Some sources speculate the hacker created an identical website to the team’s. Others think he or she simply changed the payment address, to divert funds. Either way, the hacker netted a huge sum. CoinDash had previously raised around 6.4M, so they aren’t totally broke. And the company nobly pledged to send tokens even to those who had donated to the fraudulent address. But it was just another reminder of the risks of ICOS, with many furious investors accusing the company of pulling an inside job.

5. VERITASEUM
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before; an Ethereum-based ICO was hacked under dubious circumstances. Veritaseum had red flags before hackers jacked $5.4M from the company. The coin claimed to be a peer-to-peer personal banking service. Investors who balked cited the team’s sketchy website, and its paid promotion by YouTube accounts. An extensive Reddit thread poked numerous holes in the team’s technology. The hack itself couldn’t have been sketchier. The team has been shady about how exactly it occurred, mentioning “social engineering” and an unnamed corporate partner who was negligent. A large amount of VERI tokens were stolen, and traded for Ethereum. The flash liquidation by the hacker boosted the price of VERI, and someone cruised to a large payday. Many investors and non-investors alike blasted the Veritaseum team, accusing them of pocketing the funds and claiming a hack. In the Wild West of crypto, there’s no way to know for sure. But it’s an unfortunate situation no matter how you sliice it.

6. PARITY
Most crypto investors know to keep their coins in a wallet, and not on exchanges. But sometimes even that doesn’t help; a hacker exploited a vulnerability in Parity’s Multisig Wallets, netting $30M. Using a flaw in the code and a two-step process, the hacker cracked what was thought to be a safe wallet. The hacker took Ether from multi-signature wallets containing funds from Edgeless, Swarm City, and Aeternity, three other projects. Fortunately, heroic “white hat” hackers were able to track down and return most of the stolen Ether to their rightful owners. It’s still early days in the crypto world, and this won’t be the last wallet hacked, but hopefully it’s a learning experience.

More great insight from Dasani!

Still, what about this --> Biggest ICO Ever? tZERO to Launch Pre-Sale Nov. 15 via SaftLaunch
https://hacked.com/biggest-ico-ever-tzero-to-launch-saft-pre-sale-nov-15/


Overstock CEO and tZERO Chairman Patrick Byrne made the announcement at the annual Money 20/20 conference in Las Vegas. Byrne provided a general description of the tZERO token, and said the first round of funding will be administered as a Simple Agreement for Future Tokens (SAFT) project. New York-based SAFTLaunch.com will handle the pre-sale, which is expected to run from Nov. 15 until Dec. 31.

SAFTLaunch provides a secure and compliant ICO platform, where companies and investors are vetted to ensure maximum quality.

tZERO made headlines last month after it announced plans to work with Argon Group and RenGen to launch a U.S. regulated Alternative Trading System (ATS).  The platform will enable trading of both security tokens and app tokens administered through ICOs as well as SAFTs.

// -- Become a yearly Platinum Member and save 69 USD and get access to our secret group on Workplace. Click here to change your current membership -- //
Byrne first announced his vision for tZERO all the way back in 2014. In Las Vegas, he commented on how quickly the blockchain community has evolved over the past three years.

“While many doubted, the tZERO team worked hard to be at the tip of the spear in creating and launching credible, capable and institutionally scalable blockchain technologies for crypto assets,” he said, according to GlobeNewswire. “Today those efforts are attracting interest from both the crypto community and the largest global institutional funds.”

About tZERO
As a subsidiary of Overstock, tZERO is a distributed ledger platform for capital markets and private exchanges. In addition to launching the world’s first SEC compliant ATS for cryptocurrency assets, tZERO also issued the first private blockchain bond offering, as well as the first public blockchain security.

As CCN reported two weeks ago, tZERO could very well become the biggest token raise yet. Byrne predicts the tZERO token sale could “easily” raise between $200 million and $500 million, breaking the all-time record set by Filecoin.

The Cannabis Opportunity -
The legal cannabis industry is one of the fastest growing markets on earth. In North America alone, the industry is forecasted to top US$20 billion by 2021, from US$6.7 billion in 2016, and create more than a quarter of a million jobs. Currently, 37 US states plus Washington, DC have passed medical or recreational cannabis laws, and Canada is projected to legalize recreational cannabis by July 2018.

Challenges for the Cannabis industry which the duberCoin plans on resolving:
A. Challenges for retailers:
1. Overburdened and complex delivery system.
2. Fragmented supply chains.
3. Inability to offer integrated home delivery.
4. Inaccurate date resulting in lost sales.
5. Tax regime resulting in 70%+ taxation levels.

B. Challenged for producers and processors:
1. Forecasting demand and planning production.
2. Unique crop data with each harvest.
3. Non-standardized nomenclature, no central inventory catalog.

C. Challenges for regulators and law enforcement:
1. State regulators lack the tools and logistics support to service legitimately licensed producers, processors, labs, and retailers.
2. With product moving through a complex point-to-point distribution network, and more than 1,400 locations for potential enforcement in Washington state alone, regulators simply lack the resources to monitor all points effectively.
3. The situation will only get worse: regulators in California expect to issue more than 15,000 licenses to industry participants for 2018.
4. Law enforcement is almost completely without tools to protect licensed legitimate businesses and consumers.
5. Much of the infrastructure for tracking crime is managed federally, so states that have legalized cannabis cannot use the standard law enforcement tools.

D. Payment challenges:
1. Settlement in cash.
2. Credit cards are not the solution – many customers lack bank accounts and credit cards.

The düber (DBR) token -
1. An efficient measurement and incentive system rewarding consumers and helping small & medium-sized cannabis businesses succeed.
2. Information exchange creates value for network participants: Crop-growing data, lab results, supplying product photos and descriptions, submitting reviews, referring brands, making repeat purchases (loyalty), and acting upon advertising benefits all network participants (Growers, Processors, Labs, Retailers and Consumers).
3. Value creation deserves to be incentivized: Any network participant who creates valuable information for the network is rewarded. This incentivizes participants to contribute additional information.
4. Our DBR token rewards value creation fairly and instantly.
5. The DBR token is our blockchain cryptocurrency. Based on Ethereum, it will acknowledge, measure, and allocate growth in economic surplus across the value chain fairly and instantly. DBRs will become the preferred method of payment in the düber network.

DBR is an Ethereum-based ERC-20 token -
1. We chose Ethereum as the base blockchain technology for DBR tokens due to its powerful built-in scripting language that lets us build complex smart contracts for DBR tokens relatively easily. Ethereum has already proven itself to be a capable and well-documented blockchain at the heart of many successful ecosystems.
2. The düber Platform: Off-Chain Processing with Results Published On-Chain
3. The Raiden Network is a form of off-chain transaction settlement. We will develop and utilize a similar off-chain ledger to expedite transactions and reduce fees.
4. All transactions and data handled off-chain will be signed digitally by all involved parties, with the ultimate result stored and verifiable on the Ethereum blockchain.
5. In this way, the düber network will be a fast, reliable, and secure solution that can safely handle near-instantaneous transaction speeds, while still recording the end results on the Ethereum network in a verifiable way.
6. Blockchain is a Cannabis IMPERATIVE!
7. Blockchain provides a secure and traceable form of payment.
8. Blockchain is a superior verification technology:
9. Traceability, from manufacture to purchase and delivery.
10. Immutable records of lab results.
11. Verification of consumer reviews.
12. Growing economic surplus for all network participants by providing proper incentives to those who create and distribute new information is a significant opportunity.
13. Blockchain technology and a token are ideally suited to acknowledge and measure the growth in economic surplus, as well as allocate this increase fairly across the network.
14. DBR Tokens will be Less Expensive to Accept than Cash or Credit Cards.
15. The instant and sustained demand for DBRs is in the interest of all network participants.
16. The DBR token will acknowledge, measure, and allocate growth in economic surplus across the value chain fairly and instantly.

The duberCoin reward system:
Order online from your phone, tablet or computer!
1. DBR tokens will be accepted as form of payment presenting an attractive and more secure alternative to cash.
2. Self-serve browsing and ordering from in-store tablets so you can skip the line! DBR tokens automatically credit to your customer account with pickup at the counter.
3. Paying with DBR tokens in store at the Point of Sale eliminates the need to carry cash, protects your privacy, and earns you instant DBRs!
4. See something you like on our eye-popping advertisements or menus? Take action with your duber app and receive DBRs for ‘closing the loop’.
5. Use duberex.com to search live inventory, find stores and products near you, and order for home delivery. Earn DBRs for ordering from retailers in the duber network and let duber licensed drivers speed it to your door.
6. Information exchange creates value for network participants: Crop-growing data, lab results, supplying product photos and descriptions, submitting reviews, referring brands, making repeat purchases (loyalty), and acting upon advertising benefits all network participants (Growers, Processors, Labs, Retailers and Consumers).
7. Value creation deserves to be incentivized: Any network participant who creates valuable information for the network is rewarded. This incentivizes participants to contribute additional information.
8. With the duberCoin token system, consumers (or any network participant) will earn düber tokens (DBRs) for:
 --Providing detailed product information.
 --Curating based on completeness, correctness, and quality.
 --Providing photos or descriptions for products missing this information.
 --Voting on the metadata for consumer-provided photos and descriptions
 --Consumers can also earn DBRs by writing product reviews.
 --Community participants who upvote a review receive a proportionate number of tokens for their effort

Our DBR token rewards value creation fairly and instantly. duber is uniquely positioned to stimulate the growth of economic surplus. We are an established business with multiple products launched. Our technology is already integrated into our partners’ supply chains at the inventory level, which enables us to get immediate traction, and our offering targets a high-growth, emerging industry with ideal characteristics for a blockchain platform. With its strong technical foundation and comprehensive incentives, we expect DBRs to become the preferred method of payment by all participants (growers, processors, labs, distributors, retailers, and consumers) in the legalized cannabis market.

duberCoin is a SAFT ICO -
https://dubercoin.com/duber-technologies-inc-announces-saft-based-ico-transform-cannabis-industry

The SAFTs will only be offered in the United States on a private placement basis pursuant to exemptions from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and in Canada by way of private placement exemptions from Canadian prospectus requirements, in each case to qualified “accredited investors” only. All securities issued will be subject to restrictions on re-sales in accordance with applicable securities laws. The SAFTs have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent U.S. registration or an applicable exemption from U.S. registration requirements.

The Platform in the Market -
As we have built out the system, we have received numerous enhancement requests from retailers, consumers, and regulators. Our solution now extends into the supply chain for producers, brand owners, labs, distributors, courier companies, and processors, and is integrated in its entirety to the online ordering and point-of-sale terminals. We have emerged to be the only “omnichannel” retailing solution entirely comprised of a modern, event-based architecture, built from the ground up to function as a unified system. This platform helps local businesses expose their available inventory in an online ordering system and coordinate delivery of controlled substances, without having to step away from the point-of-sale terminal.The düber platform is used by some of the largest and fastest growing cannabis retailers in Washington State. The largest retailer (monthly revenue of $1.4 million) has two stores on the ordering system. Others are adopting our in-store ordering and digital menus system, while others are focusing on the unique opportunities brought by our integrated digital advertising platform that provides millions of annual page views and in-store advertising impressions for customers every day. Consumers have motivated the development of our duberex.com ordering platform, which allows customers to find accurate product inventory at any retailer on our system in Washington, and immediately place an order with them. In total, we have more than 23 retailers live on one or more modules of our system, and another 30 under contract for installation as we conclude our beta trials and move into the commercial launch of our online ordering and advertising modules in October 2017. In Q4 we will be beta-launching the first POS-integrated seed-to-sale home delivery platform (using local retailer inventory) in Canada and the United States.

The duberCoin ICO token sale Bounty Program -
https://medium.com/@duberpartners/d%C3%BCber-bounty-program-68941e73d718
Welcome to the düber Bounty Program! Our attractive bounty program accompanies the düber token (DBR) sale.

· Whitepaper: https://gdbr.co/whitepaper-en
· Twitter: https://twitter.com/duberpartners
· Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dubertechnologiesinc/

Our bounty program will start on October 5, 2017 and end on January 19, 2018 (or as soon as we reach our token raise target). We have put aside 66,780,000 DBR tokens to distribute as part of our bounty program, an ETH value of 22,260 (!). Thanks for participating in our bounty program in support of our exciting token sale!

As we are using a stakes structure, we will not know the number of bounty DBR tokens that you have earned until after the end of the token sale or Jan 19, 2018, whichever comes first. We intend to publish the stakes that you have earned on your dashboard before the end of October and show your stakes progression from then onward. All bounty DBR tokens will be recorded within 14 days of closing the bounty program, and will show up in your DBR Crowdsale account. As well, because we are using a SAFT structure, bounty DBR tokens will be distributed at the same time as all other DBR token purchasers receive their tokens with the release of the minimum viable product. The exact timing is difficult to predict but this is expected to take a minimum of several months and potentially longer.

How to join the DBR token bounty program -

Are any of you "bounty hunters?" I'm thinking that, as ICO's proliferate, "bounty hunter" could become a new job title.  Cool

ICOs are absolutely the future... IPOs will slowly die as Private Equity gets the crypto bug. ICOs will become more legit as more institutional money and research gets involved. Not just normal traders, but the hedge funds and old money.

Crypto funds of funds are already starting... 5 are in the works, 2 will probably go through, according to Crypto Asset Management's Tim Enneking. And how are these hedge funds making money? Yup, ICOs! They throw LOTS of money in, and get huge discounts. Money yielding more money...

I know of one hedge fund that's at 80% ICOs right now ...

I agree with holding the best ICOs... just like picking small and microcap stocks: do your research, make an investment plan, diversify your portfolio, and HODL HODL HODL!

ETH is going to blow up next year because ICOs are going to become standardized.

2017 = year of BTC
2018 = year of ETH
2019 = ?

Blockchain & Dubai -->
Dubai Goes Blockchain to Become Fintech Hub for The East
https://cointelegraph.com/news/dubai-goes-blockchain-to-become-fintech-hub-for-the-east

Having discovered and bought Bitcoin in the early 2010s, I initially had a hard time convincing my peers in the Middle East about the benefits of the underlying technology. Even harder was finding a way to buy Bitcoin if you lived in a region where people at the time were predominantly underbanked and dealt almost strictly with cash transactions.

Any discussion with those who worked in the financial industry ended up with hyperbolic accusations of Bitcoin being a currency for sex-trafficking on the deep web, and Blockchain being nothing more than a vaporware hype.

Today, I ironically see that the Middle Eastern Blockchain ecosystem is a completely different story. The same people working in the financial sector that joked about Blockchain being a fad are now propping it as the future of finance.

For example, Dubai’s endeavor to become the world’s first Blockchain city has picked up serious momentum halfway through 2017, and as with everything else “Dubai,” the UAE city-state is doing it in the flashiest way possible.

Fintech ambitions
Just hours ago, the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) and the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) in Hong Kong cemented an agreement on fintech cooperation between the two authorities, with the intention to pave the path for startups in the MENA and East Asian markets. In a press release, Mr. Ian Johnston, the Chief executive of the DFSA, said that providing a regime that “fosters innovation in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) is a strategic priority.”

This agreement with Hong Kong’s SFC is the newest step in setting the foundations for fintech in Dubai, subsequent to the recent inauguration of the FinTech Hive in Dubai’s financial hub.

This fintech accelerator was created with the intention of connecting technology innovators and startups with a network of regional and international financial leaders such as the Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, HSBC, VISA, as well as governmental Islamic Financial development organizations.

New euphoria
Over the years, Cointelegraph reported on several crypto-related Middle Eastern startups, ICOs and exchanges, but only recently has the interest in Blockchain in Dubai’s governmental and private sector exploded to the euphoria we are currently witnessing. In fact, not a day goes by where I do not read about Blockchain being in the news in Dubai’s newspapers, with a special focus on the developments of Smart Dubai’s Blockchain strategy. There are also several conferences lined up in Dubai before the end of 2017, some of which are about to sell out.

Major projects
This wave of digital innovation comes as part of the government’s plan to become the first Blockchain government by 2020. Some of Dubai’s recent Blockchain ambitions by 2020 include:

Reducing the cost of document processing by billions of dollars through eliminating manual processing of residencies, passport documentation and visas through a partnership with ConsenSys.
Improving governmental operations and Islamic banking by moving inter-governmental paperwork onto the Blockchain through a new local startup called ArabianChain.
Several other Blockchain prototypes are currently being deployed by the Dubai government and the tech giant IBM, using Hyperledger’s Fabric tech.

It is, therefore, safe to say that Dubai no longer views Blockchain as a fad, and will likely be the world’s first in deploying fully functional governmental Blockchain services.

And then there IS this -->
EmCash Is Dubai’s First Official Cryptocurrency

https://futurism.com/emcash-is-dubais-first-official-cryptocurrency/

The government of the city of Dubai launched their own blockchain-based cryptocurrency last week. The city’s economy department partnered with one of its subsidiaries called Emcredit Limited and U.K.-based Object Tech Group, Ltd. to create emCash. This new “encrypted digital currency” is a product of partnerships Dubai has cultivated through their Accelerators Initiative and brought under the umbrella of the Dubai Economy Accelerators.

“A digital currency has varied advantages – faster processing, improved delivery time, less complexity and cost, to name a few,” Dubai Economy deputy director general Ali Ibrahim said in a press statement. “It will change the way people live and do business in Dubai, and mark a giant leap for the city in harnessing game-changing innovations to improve ease of business and quality of life.”


Officials claim that emCash uses the latest blockchain technology and works as part of payment system called emWallet. As the city’s credit bureau, Emcredit has made sure that the emWallet handles various types of transactions—from “their daily coffee and children’s school fee to utility charges and money transfers”—with a near-field communication (NFC) support through a smartphone.

The city will also have a shared platform, called Blockchain as a Service, to help Dubai government agencies use blockchain in various projects.

INVESTING IN THE FUTURE

Blockchain’s potential as a decentralized and secure platform for transactions, financial or otherwise, isn’t lost to those with eyes to the future. Dubbed as the “city of the future,” Dubai is certainly one of those, but it isn’t the first to have an “official” cryptocurrency. The launch of the emCash, however, is only a first step.

Dubai has been working on becoming the world’s first economy that’s built on the blockchain, and with it its own cryptocurrency. This is where the city’s efforts differ, and could potentially influence economies through the entire United Arab Emirates (UAE). “Obtaining approvals from other UAE authorities will be taken into consideration if required,” Ibrahim said.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Smart Dubai, the government office responsible for encouraging innovation in the country, will be conducting government and private organization workshops over the next few months to identify those services best enhanced by blockchain. After that, the office expects that pilot projects in both the public and private sectors will begin rolling out this year.

“The fast paced environment and incredible willingness to adopt innovative technology has made Dubai the perfect place for us to do business,” said Muna Al Qassab, CEO of Emcredit Limited, in the city’s press release. “This project is a great example of the ambition we have met here, together we are essentially creating a whole new economic ecosystem.”
