1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is 2018 the year of stablecoins? on: March 14, 2018, 10:11:46 PM
I think it will be. The volatility of all cryptos is killing the gains. Parking gains in a Stablecoin makes sense. I like Globcoin - it makes sense.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What about 2018 ICOs on: December 30, 2017, 01:12:47 PM
Yes, it's true that there are too many ICO's... but maybe it's a good thing that we have options.

Different projects fit different needs from different communities.

You just have to do a good research and find the most suitable one for you.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / COINSPEAKER: Globcoin Is Ready to Launch Its ICO Campaign on: December 30, 2017, 12:53:44 PM
A few things about Globcoin
Globcoin is a multi-currency payment platform that combines the advantages of fiat currency with those of digital money.  Launched by Reserve Currency Solutions SA, a Zug based company, it aims to provide individuals from all around the world access to fast, secure and cheap transactions.

Globcoin is dedicated to creating an environment in which clients will be able to build currency baskets according to their needs. The platform’s currency is associated with 15 of the most important global economies and gold.

Thanks to the Ethereum blockchain technology on which the platform is based, the services that were once reserved to a select few, will now be available to the mainstream public.

Currency baskets are a varied set of selected currencies with different weightings. These currency baskets have the role of minimizing the risks of value fluctuations that can occur in a single reference currency. Globcoin has been offering cryptocurrency baskets to family offices and significant organizations since the year 2012, and now they will make this from of currency management available to all customers.

But even though the advantages of currency baskets seem obvious, their use is dependent on a few restrictions:

– The barrier of size: the foreign exchange market only trades in large amounts.

– The barrier of price: only experienced currency managers will receive liquidity and good pricing for transactions involving currency pairs from the basket.

– The barrier of infrastructure: buying and selling individual currency pairs, with one of them being quoted by a very limited number of counterparts, requires a dedicated infrastructure and professional team.

Globcoin has developed two Ether tokens:

GCP – a Utility Token that has the ability to issue and access various currency baskets on the platform, including but not limited to the World Reserve Currency (GLX).

GLX – a Token that is connected to the 15 largest fiat world currencies and Gold. The GLX is 100 % backed on a 1-to-1 ratio and for every GLX issued by the Prime Bank there will be collateral ibn fiat currencies and gold. For issuing and exchanging GLX for fiat currency, GCP Utility Tokens are needed.

The team behind the project
Having headquarters in UK and Switzerland, Globcoin brings together a talented collective of individuals which are well versed in FX, blockchain and successful entrepreneurship.

Helie d’Hautefort is one of the company’s co-founders and CEO, known for setting up the first European currency overlay manager and then selling it to BNP Paribas, turning it into a world leader with a revenue of over USD 23 million of AUM.

Bertrand Weisgerber, also a co-founder – he is the current manager and creator of TLS Contact, which over time has become a world leader of visa application, having centers in over 62 countries (15 in China).

More about the ICO
For Globcoin to further continue its development, there will be a token sale with the GCP Utility Token. The fund that will result from this event will be used in improving the current structure of the platform, marketing and PR, customer acquisitions and partnership programs. The proceeds from the funds will also finance 2 years of future Globcoin operations such as legal and administration costs.

Token name – GCP;
GCP created per 1 Ether – 100;
Minimum Ether to be collected (participants can claim a refund if this floor is not reached)-5,000;
Maximum Ether (the token sales ends if this cap is reached)- 150,000;
Maximum Ether (the pre-sale ends if this cap is reached)- 30,000;
Maximum number of tokens generated to crowdsale participants- 15 850 000 to 37.8%;
Maximum number of tokens generated to pre-sale participants- 5 100 000 to 12.2%;
Maximum number of tokens generated for future business development, and market expansion- 12 570 000 to 30%;
Maximum number of tokens generated to team, adviser and early backers- 8 380 000 to 20%;
Maximum number of GCP generated- 41 900 000 to 100%
Globcoin will provide a stable infrastructure on which all members of the community can engage in safe, liquid and cost-effective transactions with fiat and digital currencies alike.

Globcoin will make an appearance at the following crypto-related events: London Blockchain Week on January 18 -19th; 6th North American Bitcoin Conference on January 18 -19th in Miami; Crypto Finance Conference on January 17-19th in St. Moritz, Switzerland; DC Blockchain Summit on March 6-8th in Washington.
4  Economy / Economics / Re: About your cup of coffee and Economic Globalization on: December 30, 2017, 12:00:38 PM
OP's article.

Quote
As you probably noticed, the increasing and unstoppable globalization affects global politics, global culture, and of course, global economy. We no longer live in isolation, as something happening in one region is closely linked to consequences all over the World. In 2016, for example, the US presidential election and Brexit caused upheaval in global financial markets.

Problem: Global economy, local currencies
As you drink your morning coffee, observe it for a moment and think about this: Many national economic systems and currencies have participated in the process of bringing that coffee to your table. The value of that cup of coffee is sensitive to currency fluctuations all over the globe… just as your wealth.

Even though we live in a global world, the system still works in terms of local currencies. We live global but we save local, a paradox that has been well studied by GLOBCOIN experts. The truth is, a solution to the global currency paradox hadn’t been made available to the community before.

Solution: A currency that actually reflects the World Economy
Some people think (Maybe most people) they have no currency risk if they stay within the borders of their home country. This is not true anymore. The economy is so globalized today that if your currency weakens for any reason, your purchasing power will be reduced accordingly. You can ask the Venezuelans in Venezuela, as they feel the consequences of this everyday.

We want to create a real global currency for the global village we all live in. GLOBCOIN is a digital coin that intents to reflect the world economy by combining the best aspects of cryptocurrencies and the best aspects of fiat (or traditional) currencies. The plan is to link this digital coin to a basket of currencies from the 15 largest world economies and 5 % Gold.

A global or world currency is actually a well-known concept in International Finance and Foreign Exchange Markets. Just imagine a currency that can be used for transactions across the globe without borders, and investments could then be “currency neutral”, truly global, without any currency bias.

https://medium.com/@globcoin_io/about-that-coffee-youre-having-and-economic-globalization-41879677fde5

...

Globcoin appears to be a one world government, one world currency, venture. Typically those endeavors come via way of central bankers who are the largest supporter of ONG's and OWC's in the world.

One world governments and one world currencies are very centralized paradigms. Its normal for a decentralization versus centralization debate/discussion would crop up, whenever something like this is posted.

I think most of us are aware by now of the typical arguments but if anyone wants to rehash things, by all means.

Hey!

We appreciate the insight. And you're right: Debate is normal... and healthy.

Our advisor Giuseppe Ballocchi says:

The composition of GLOBCOIN is determined by the invisible hand of decentralized market forces, and not by any centralized authority or central bank.  The rules that are used to determine its composition are designed to measure and reflect the results of those forces, as the historical track record shows. The concept of having weights based in GDP adjusted by purchasing power parity has proven very sound over the years, and in fact it has not only reflected, but even anticipated the impact of market forces. Blockchain technology, which was not available when we came up with the concept undelying the globcoin, empowers us to make it widely avalailable.

Our CEO Helie D'hautefort says:

Our role is to help people to cope with the fact that we live in a globalized world. We're not judging wether it is good or bad, but stating it is a fact.
Our mission is to help people facing some of the consequences of this globalization, given that the strengh of their currency has a direct impact on their purchasing power . By offering diversification into the 15 largest economies thought our currency basket, as easy as a click, we will provide protection against this risk.

And we are also providing one of the most stable cryptocurrencies in the industry, because diversification brings stability . That is why our basket (which is already being traded for large clients) has been far less volatile against all other currencies than anything else including well known safe haven such as the Swiss franc or Gold.

A good project with a target niche. I have some questions,  please will your services be global or limited to some given geographical zones?

Hi Emily,

The regulatory status of our tokens and distributed ledger technology is still unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether regulatory agencies may apply existing regulation with respect to such technology and its applications, including the GCP Platform and the GCP Tokens.
 
Basically, each purchaser of  GCP Tokens shall represent and warrant that they’re not a citizen of North Korea ,Iran • Iraq • Lybia • Syria • South Sudan • Cuba, or the USA (for citizenship or residency but qualified investors can contact us by email)
 
They need to be residents of a Permitted Jurisdiction and is legally permitted to purchase and  receive GCP Tokens.

I think GLOBCOIN has a good base for stability.

GLOBCOIN relies on the expertise of a professional team, to create a basket of currencies that will enable its holders to strategically use the most stable element in the basket. This technique has proven to be even more stable than the Swiss Franc. Each basket created by GLOBCOIN will have initial weights corresponding to a specific need of a community.

ICO starts in January.
