Cryptocurrency investor Brian Kelly, states on CCN “Referring back to the basic rule of investing, Kelly noted that during a period in which the market is extremely bullish and optimistic, it is better to sell and eye a timely opportunity to enter and when the market is overly pessimistic, it is wise to look for a position to enter.”

Bitcoin originally was supposed to offer an efficient means of transferring money over the internet and is controlled by a decentralized network with a transparent set of rules, thus presenting an alternative to central bank controlled fiat money. Market participants changed from geeks and believers in Blockchain to funds and investors looking to make profit with the uptrend volatile market. This led people to ignore the primary function of Bitcoin which was to efficiently transfer money over the internet with no control from central banks.

This is affecting the whole markets including the new ICOs and tokens. New ICOs and tokens are simply being invested in to sell once listed and gain whatever discount rate the ICO is offering. Most of the time these tokens are tied to the price volatility and movement of Bitcoin and Ethereum. INGOT Coin has been studying the market carefully in order to develop in ways that separated from Bitcoin and Ethereum as well as their price volatility

INGOT Coin intends to foster building an interconnected global community of trust and cooperation on which the basis of honesty and transparency between its members exist. INGOT is well on its way in making a breakthrough in Crypto & financial markets by presenting a revolutionary gateway towards an all-inclusive environment. The vision and aim of INGOT is to provide the community with real Utility value whether Bitcoin was at a new low or high. To achieve that aim INGOT has partnered with multiple ICOs in order to provide numerous Utilities with an access from one platform. INGOT also does not base their coin on Ethereum or Bitcoin but rather on USD value.

The ICOs are all in different industries from Health to Financial services and E-commerce to Real Estate. INGOT Coin, GMEX-Group, BolttCoin, Modern Finance Chain (MFChain), SwachhCoin, Black.Insure, PlaceToRent (PTRT), Bineuro and Stella have all formed a unified front under one alliance. The group of ICOs along with GMEX plan to establish a single platform that will allow all their communities to use their utilities simultaneously. Furthermore, plans of enabling different discounts among each one of the ICOs is being discussed in order to give edge to all participants.

Providing all those different Utilities through one gateway will provide true value to the tokens and the end users. In giving real utility to different tokens and access from one point it is clear that the latter will be the value of the tokens and not the price and volatility of Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Oil and gas is sold in large volumes and as such entail significant value, not unlike the size and scale of transactions between banks. The frequency of transactions is also high; for example, a 300,000 barrel per day oil refinery will need to source a large crude carrier every week to maintain adequate volumes, and cargos can cost as much as USD 100 million (two million barrels at USD 50 per barrel). Oil companies also need to be aware of where crude is ultimately sourced. Some exporting nations are from time-to-time under sanctions to prevent trade in this commodity. Blockchain could provide a fully transparent and secure record of the entire supply chain. Using a distributed ledger, digital tokens can be used to represent the asset being transacted. These tokens can be issued by a trusted authority for the needs of the companies or participating parties; for example, if oil and gas companies used a blockchain ledger to buy and sell barrels of oil, transactions could include digital tokens named Brent or WTI. These tokens would represent the underlying asset of a barrel of oil and would remain digitally attached throughout its supply chain journey. Currently, around nine percent of crude oil transactions are disputed, which equates to around USD 150 billion each year. By using tokens in a blockchain, payment could be processed more quickly, paperwork such as title transfers would be eliminated, and disputed transactions could be significantly reduced. It is important to note that the token being exchanged will be subject to gains or losses based on the strength of the underlying fiat (local) currency. If 50 WTI tokens are purchased using US dollars, the value of these tokens are exposed to fluctuations in the US dollar. As the use of cryptocurrencies increases, governments are forming positions on the taxation implications of cryptocurrencies and their exchange for fiat currency.
The Permian Token opportunity allows for direct equity crowdfunding participation by token contributors under a trust-protocol that allows them to benefit from oil supply that is proven to be available but not yet produced. The Strategy With the Permian Token we developed a solution to solve the working capital requirements of oil exploration & production companies and oil exploration and production economies, meanwhile democratizing the direct investment sector for the average investor. The result, allowing seamless and transparent reporting of our world’s energy reserves and oil transactions under an immutable trust protocol (the blockchain). The Company also solved theoretical and technological issues of oil exploration & production by allowing public and private sector to sell proven reserves yet to be produced via blockchain technology under a closed-loop-B2B-exchange (the “PermianChain”). 11 The PERMIAN Token Offering will launch 10 billion XPR tokens. It is our intention that at least 8.0 billion XPR will be sold during the ITO stages at $0.10 per token. Where we anticipate that 87.5% of the funds raised will go into oil campaigns and acreage with proven reserves, also referred to as P90. Whereas over 6% will be used to invest in continuous technology including blockchain and artificial intelligence for oil & gas exploration and production. Therefore, the total value of circulating XPR will eventually equal to a portion of the total value of Proven Reserves that are identified until each barrel of oil in proven reserves is produced and sold.

Field personnel make errors when entering data on oilfield tickets. Often alphanumeric, these codes are crucial for inter-party communication, data tracking, and maintenance records. Moreover, when back offices are processing these paper tickets, they too may be prone to human error and mistype this information. On average, error rates hover around 25–30%. Altogether, this human error leads to a tremendous number amount of reconciliation efforts that cost time and money. AFE#, PO# or WBS# are examples of coding gone wrong, which often are the culprits in these instances. Even the UWI (unique well ID) changes are not tracked uniformly across companies on the same well, leading to problems in back office reconciliations. Blockchain technology can’t entirely protect from human error; someone can still enter an alphanumeric number incorrectly into a blockchain platform. However, the records of these errors is a lot clearer with the overall data transparency provided by the technology. This means reconciliation efforts are easier, less expensive, and less labor intensive.
Many of the issues above relate back to general inability to effectively collect, record, and coordinate data on an oilfield or well and between all involved stakeholders. The data obfuscation that results is detrimental to companies and workers from a liability and financial perspective. Oftentimes, data is haphazardly collected and then organized and analyzed in multiple systems after the fact — a “double work” situation. Blockchain technology enables data sanitation by providing a single repository of all information, access to which can be determined and managed by the consortium of stakeholders with access to the platform. The application of smart contracts can automatically structure that data into a digestible format, removing the need for manual re-organization.

ICOs have become a equivalent word for hype, unjustified ratings and excessive risk. On the other hand, blockchain can increase project transparency, decrease investor risk and develop into an effective financing tool for quality blockchain projects.Most of ICO’s fail because their product contribution is not needed as well as the fact that no major hearing can link with the product. They don’t make sure you conduct intensive market research to make sure that there actually is a need for the initial coin offering concept they are trying to create. Projects make sure they try and create a real functional token economy that makes sense and has a reason for existing. People see many initial coin offerings out there that exist just for the sake to make money. These ICO’s are mostly scams and will fail.

Because a company is holding an ICO, does not necessarily mean that their product has anything to do with blockchain technology — just that they have tokenized their fundraising efforts using a platform. INGOT Coin aims that using blockchain technology is better, and investors need to be aware of why. Investors need to question if it makes good business sense to invest in a company based purely on its use of blockchain technology.

INGOT Coin ensures that funds and personal data are secured during and after ICO. In addition, the team ensures legal compliance not only in the country of registration, but also in all the countries where project operations and token use are planned. INGOT Coin uses transparent legal structure and provides clear justification for blockchain and own utility token. INGOT Coin team is sure to test  MVP if and consider how well it aligns with the promises made in the white paper, satisfies the use case, and demonstrates the advantages over other offerings in the space. We give importance that MVPs should have users, investigate any available customer feedback and how the team has responded. INGOT Coin believes that our brand is the face of our offering and the more time we take to create a good brand identity, the better the rest of our marketing communications will be.

INGOT Coin started to shape the future of the financial markets by collecting their soft cap, receiving over $40,000,000 USD. The team behind INGOT Coin announced that the Pre-token sale is officially closed after successfully raising $40,000,000 USD. In addition to this great new, all INGOT Coin holders can now use their ICC in our Brokerage, INGOT Brokers, and start trading over +1000 instruments. 1 ICC equals 1 USD and will be deposited accordingly in INGOT Brokers.

INGOT Coin ICO phase will finished at 10th October. Based on INGOT Coin extensive financial model, we have placed a hard cap of $90,000,000. This number will ensure we provide the best services with optimal allocations into each component of this all-inclusive ecosystem. Everything is going on right now and Dev team is already working on all our product under the favor of reaching the soft cap target. Team has continued to build innovative product and not waiting for finish of our ICO. INGOT Team believes that victory will be the true workers!!

Once an XPR is bought, it can be then liquidated via a the PermianChain Exit Facility or used by midstream companies to claim their rights for the associated barrels of crude oil from the PermianChain platform. Daily production by the suppliers determines how many XPR can be used to claim oil per day. Once an XPR token holder exercises her rights and the transaction order for the barrel is filled, the XPR token will be returned to Treasury and re-listed with new Platform Prospects upon listing Proven Reserves. Blockchain validates each transaction, rights claim and supplier fulfillment for security and transparency on the platform. Shipping logistics would be streamlined as well through the use of digital wallets. Each wallet is registered to a specific buyer and contains that specific buyer’s drop-ship location. Whenever XPR token is exercised for a barrel of oil, the blockchain protocol knows exactly where to ship the order and can calculate shipping / logistic cost to deliver the barrel to the designated location specified in the wallet. This would ultimately reduce cost and streamline business operations for upstream and midstream companies. Thus, increasing the value / price of each XPR, and providing immediate income for the supplier. This could have positive future developments that should potentially allow PermianChain to prove sources of oil and decrease corruption and smuggling of oil as a result of war-torn countries around the world. For the meantime, the PermianChain is a needed solution for the cash flow gap faced by oil companies and for oil producing economies to reduce their risks of deficits.

iPowow is looking to fund a plan to create a cryptocurrency that would pay people for watching their favorite shows. The currency would also compensate viewers for sharing data — quickly proving to be a precious commodity — about who they are, what they watch and what they buy. And if all of this wasn’t buzzworthy enough, the iPowow folks are planning to use blockchain as the technological foundation for their new business. What iPowow calls HIT tokens and the HIT protocol can benefit the TV business by offering three solutions to problems such as viewers watching on noncommercial platforms, inconsistent cross-platform audience measurement and a lack of data about TV advertising, iPowow CEO Gavin Douglas said. Benefits for Viewers, Advertisers With the HIT protocol, viewers get paid to watch shows, content creators and networks engage viewers and generate more revenue from digital viewing, and advertisers get transparency and audience insights. It would work this way: A viewer tunes in a show and sees a graphic that says they’re getting five HIT tokens. The viewer either clicks his or her remote or goes to a second screen to activate an account and accept the tokens. The viewer must have granted GDPR consent to share data. Later, the viewer can go to a digital shopping plaza to buy things with the HIT tokens. A number of large retailers have expressed interest in letting viewers use HIT tokens to buy real merchandise, Douglas said. Jill Rosengard Hill, executive VP at market research firm Magid, said there was potential to the idea of a reward program for TV. “There is a segment of consumers who are open to the exchange of their data for a fee,” she said. A recent Magid study found 33% of mobile users said they would give up access to their data in exchange for a discount. “Marketers are looking at loyalty programs or the exchange of coins, gifts or money to drive loyalty and to drive tunein,” she said.There have been previous efforts to create reward systems for watching TV. GetGlue, which rewarded viewers with stickers, was acquired in 2012 by Viggle, a mobile app that offered points that could be exchanged for gift cards or access to premium content. For the past seven years, iPowow has been in what it dubbed the “participation TV” business, creating interactive features that can be sponsored for 200 shows on networks such as ABC, Fox and USA, local stations and digital video platforms such as Facebook Live and Twitch. For Twitch, iPowow created an extension that lets viewers pay gamers they’re watching live and have input into how games will be played. Douglas said iPowow has demonstrated that its system works whether on the first screen or second screen, and on all platforms — linear broadcast, VOD, over-the-top and online. He hopes to raise the millions iPowow will need in August. Blockchain Migration for HIT iPowow plans to build its new HIT protocol on a blockchain foundation and migrate its current technology to blockchain as well by year end. Blockchain enables the cryptocurrency HIT tokens, which cost less to distribute initially than real dollars and also provide transparency, immutability and consistency while decentralizing account information. The HIT protocol will also be open, allowing other companies to develop apps, which will increase the utility of the system. iPowow has been scanning the horizon but doesn’t see any competitor ready to implement an effective TV rewards program. “The way we see it is, someone going to do this,” Douglas said. “Someone’s going to produce a media engagement token that’s global and covers all video interactions, and people get rewarded for watching and they can go spend it on things. We say it’s going to be us, so that’s what we’re going to do.These are our official social platforms:

While Bitcoin’s market dominance has risen, the market scenarios then and now are quite different. Back then, Bitcoin covered a 50% market share of the cryptocurrency markets, where the total crypto market cap stood at nearly $600 Billion. However, while Bitcoin’s market dominance is 50% , the overall market cap is less than half of what it was back then. The total cryptocurrency market cap is about $208 Billion.
Investors have become less open-minded and less willing to theorize on alt-coins. As a result, the investment and development of new crypto settlements will hurt. Bitcoins price is not the main issue of this topic. That’s because investors primarily concerned with relative value. Crypto community believe in relative value trading, and it can expose a lot of interesting about the cryptocurrency market. Price can be volatile, highly emotional and unstable. Relative value tells us a entirely different story. With a relative value perspective, we can see the market is increasing in fear, even if this isn’t what is reflected in Bitcoins price. If you’re a true optimist towards cryptocurrencies, the price is less significant than the vision of the future. A future where decentralized currencies can be used with total ease and convenience. Admittedly, this hasn't happened yet, but steps are being taken towards this future every day. In any case, bitcoin in its current form isn’t able to deliver this future in the short term. Following on from this logic, presumably at some point another coin will takeover from bitcoin. But there is a solution to be independent.

INGOT Coin (IC) aims to integrate the traditional financial industry with the blockchain innovation by offering a complete Ecosystem that provides crypto holders the access to all financial services. The first of all-inclusive Ecosystem will be the pioneer in linking the crypto universe to the current traditional world. INGOT Coin will comprise an unique solution by integrating 6 basic components of financial ecosystem and providing a one-stop-shop for the digital asset, traditional asset and currency markets to solve challenges by creating a link between the crypto market and the traditional market. The IC Ecosystem will establish 6 different components to work hand in hand under one umbrella, proving all community members the chance to capitalize on upcoming opportunities in all markets. The Ecosystem’s components, as shown below, are the  IC Wallet, IC Exchange, IC Brokerage, IC Digital Bank IC Certifier and IC ICO Accelerator.
INGOT Coin aims to create an unprecedented, a first-of-its-kind revolutionary ecosystem based on Blockchain technology that will link newly developed crypto markets with the currently existing financial markets eliminating inefficiencies, while providing a one-stop ecosystem that enables participants to perform and execute transactions according to their financial needs. Among that background, they are constantly hard at work, try to intensify the formation and reach of INGOT Coin throughout the world. INGOT is creating an interrelated global community of trust and collaboration with its highly obvious platform. INGOT is balanced to give power back to the people by making them take total control of their finances.

TIM Blockchain has been followed a number of ways to measure “success”.
TIM is a two layered blockchain- First layer is root blockchain which only stores Merkle hash of second layer. First layer is very light weight (approx. 4 MB data size). Second layer (Multigraph) is the one which stores all the transaction data in form of blocks. First layer only references the blocks of second layer. Second layer blocks are partitioned using vertical shard. Each node (mobile device / computer running TIM core engine) in TIM network contains entire root blockchain (first layer) and only a part of the second layer blocks. Assuming there are 10,000 nodes in a network, TIM first creates cluster of nodes based on geolocation using partition technology. So, the nodes which belongs to ASIA will be part of ASIA cluster and nodes which belongs to North America will belong to North America cluster. TIM call this clusters as triangles / graphs. The transaction which is originating in North America will participate in triangle of North America. All blocks mined in North America will be stored in each of the nodes which belong to North America region only. However, all the nodes of North America will have complete root blockchain present but only part of second layer blocks which is mined in North America. Similarly, each Node of Asia Cluster (triangle) will contain entire root blockchain of TIM but only part of second layer blocks which is mined in ASIA. This is called as vertical partition of blocks.
In today’s world, most of the blockchain coin prices are driven by scarcity model and hype which is not based on real world use case. None of the blockchain is capable enough to meet the demand of enterprise and governments. They need high transaction rate and security against future thread like quantum attack. Most of the banks are still keeping themselves away from existing blockchains because of high transaction fees, partial decentralism and future quantum attacks. This is where TIM will play an important role in solving real use case of the world. From first day to today, TIM always targets to support high transaction rate (up to 100 million TPS), is quantum secure yet low fee and fully decentralized.
The history of TIM Blockchain was started with product requirement analysis at August 2016. The team determined user expectations for the product, it means that defined the product scope. The team defined an initial set of requirements. In further steps of development, the team created detailed issues for daily task sand linked each task with one or more requirements to keep traceability of development activities with requirements.
Blockchain technology is based on cryptographic algorithms designed to prevent data distortion. Each block includes a hash to the previous block, so it’s impossible to substitute an intermediate block in the ledger.  At February 2017, TIM IOT division has developed the IOT device (ASIC chip) which can directly talk to TIM blockchain. This is developed using PUF technology (Physical Unclonable Function) to prevent spoofing attack, so that no one can create a copy of it and do spoofing attack on Private TIM blockchain Network of our clients. These IOT devices will be used for many purpose like FX transactions on chip, tracking logistics and consignments and many more.
At the end of the 2017, the project concept and prototypes of TIM Blockchain has been developed and team developed the multigraph simulated network system. TIM uses vertical partitioning of blockchain using geolocation of nodes and is dynamic based on demand. (Load of transaction in a given region). This term is called as dynamic sharding and vertical sharding. The network starts with two default graphs across the globe with partition across the equator line. With increase of transactions, the graphs are forked to create more parallel partitions which could increase the overall throughput of the system.
After the whitepaper completion, TIM Blockchain team published a new and pathbreaking model for how cryptography based digital assets, namely cryptocurrencies or tokens in March 2018. It was based on simple premise of utility value, which means that any asset should be as valuable as its usefulness. Additionally, the pre-ICO of TIM Blockchain had been conducted in March 2018 and collected 3000 ETH from more than 200 investors. The ultimate goal is always reaching higher at TIM Blockchain, so the hard cap is determined where TIM Blockchain needs to reach.
TIM team continued with developing the multigraph test network and integrations the POA network on the public Node multigraph in the April 2018. The blockchain security is achieved by the multigraph generated by sharding of TIM network. The key generation works for network size of above 400, therefore has a future readiness feature. The generation mechanism is collaborative, where each of the graph miner computes the isogeny contribution by keeping oneself at the root. The root nature can be easily verified when the block is signed. This also mandates that the block to be created by one of graph miners. To reach this stage, the size of the multigraph is key criteria.
TIM Blockchain has released limited beta for sharding testnet. TIM uses vertical partitioning of blockchain using geolocation of nodes and is dynamic based on demand. This term is called as dynamic sharding and vertical sharding. TIM Blockchain built over Ethereum code base using vertical sharding, on-demand partition, load distribution based on statistical model, DAG based network topology for nodes communication, scoring mechanism using gossip trust protocol, cuckoo filter instead of bloom filter and many more.
Besides the marketing power of TIM Blockchain, project team has established alliances and strategic partnerships across industries in order to enable knowledge creations as well as gaining diverse perspectives from every side of the spectrum. TIM Blockchain aims to cultivate a coordinated global positive community and cooperation on which the basis of integrity and transparency among its members. TIM Blockchain Team are working to expand further, reaching out to larger audiences and achieving the next goal (hard cap), amongst having numerous existing partnerships.
And finally, TIM Blockchain is pleased to announce that the crowd sale has begun at the 15h September 2018 and the fastest contributors got their TIM tokens secured. TIM tokens have been sold to the general public with appropriate KYC and AML compliance. The crowd sale has been conducted on the LAToken platform -https://[Suspicious link removed]/2Oaog0c currently a Top 50 Cryptocurrency Exchange. TIM Blockchain has announced that to help investors in current market conditions, Ethereum price are pegged to US$400. This gives them more TIM tokens than their ether would otherwise buy.
The TIM foundation aims to strengthen communities across the globe using technological advancement and innovation. We are committed to create one of the most viable public, scalable, secure, permission-less blockchain of choice for enterprises, governments and partners.

The blockchain network comprises of nodes, i.e., distributed servers. All the nodes can accept and process the transaction. The nodes on the network share information about the candidate transaction. As much as the logic/tech part of it sounds confusing, the business models are so much easier to understand and are really impressive.TIM is enterprise ready. Amongst many, few applications of TIM blockchain are discussed below:
Enterprise blockchain: TIM can scale from 100 TPS to 100 Million TPS by dynamically sharding in smaller shards and maintaining a global consensus of every transaction through two layers of graph and blockchain. Thus, TIM provides an unprecedented level of performance and cross commerce opportunity for hosting transaction-based businesses, i.e. finance, banking, logistics, ecommerce, etc. The crossindustry commerce is highly frictional due to huge amount of integration required. For example, to create a partnership between logistics and healthcare business, one needs to integrate two different types of ERP systems, CRM, and EDI (electronic data exchanges). Even the same industry verticals can benefit from TIM blockchain. Like consumer banking and fx-trading businesses can become seamless using secure, encrypted and anonymous features to quickly move their inventories with least amount of integration. Below image shows one of the TIM venture in banking space.
TIM is also developing free Taxi service on fee free subchain. The taxi service will run on the smart contract. This will cut down / disrupt aggregator services like Uber and Ola in the developing nations charging very high commissions up to 30 % from taxi drivers.

Government Blockchain: Seamless Global Currencies - TIM blockchain is going to host electronic currencies for governments and regional unions. The possibilities are endless for faster trade and commerce, banking transparency as well as frictionless settlements. $TIM is the internal money of TIM blockchain to manage the trust and consensus of the humongous TIM network. The currencies of the governments and their supplies can be controlled by the central banking regulators based on their own bespoke demands. This provides unprecedentedlevel of access to various kinds of economic opportunities and control over the bad actors. High performance network of TIM blockchain ensures that all the currency businesses for all the nations can be hosted on a single network and also without any direct mining fees. The currencies are hosted in a hybrid of main-net and subchains so that only they have minimal presence on main network for optimal control and lowest mining fees. All the major businesses are handled in fee free subchains of TIM.
Personal Blockchain: Fee Free subchains to be your personal blockchain - TIM can host 2^60 subchains which are protected by fee free challenger nodes. With same level of performance and security as TIM network, subchains can be your new email address or health record or roaming data storage like dropbox.

Most of ICO’s fail because their product contribution is not needed as well as the fact that no major hearing can link with the product. They don’t make sure you conduct intensive market research to make sure that there actually is a need for the initial coin offering concept they are trying to create. Projects make sure they try and create a real functional token economy that makes sense and has a reason for existing. People see many initial coin offerings out there that exist just for the sake to make money. These ICO’s are mostly scams and will fail.

Because a company is holding an ICO, does not necessarily mean that their product has anything to do with blockchain technology — just that they have tokenized their fundraising efforts using a platform. INGOT Coin aims that using blockchain technology is better, and investors need to be aware of why. Investors need to question if it makes good business sense to invest in a company based purely on its use of blockchain technology.

INGOT Coin ensures that funds and personal data are secured during and after ICO. In addition, the team ensures legal compliance not only in the country of registration, but also in all the countries where project operations and token use are planned. INGOT Coin uses transparent legal structure and provides clear justification for blockchain and own utility token. INGOT Coin team is sure to test  MVP if and consider how well it aligns with the promises made in the white paper, satisfies the use case, and demonstrates the advantages over other offerings in the space. We give importance that MVPs should have users, investigate any available customer feedback and how the team has responded. INGOT Coin believes that our brand is the face of our offering and the more time we take to create a good brand identity, the better the rest of our marketing communications will be.

INGOT Coin started to shape the future of the financial markets by collecting their soft cap, receiving over $40,000,000 USD. The team behind INGOT Coin announced that the Pre-token sale is officially closed after successfully raising $40,000,000 USD. In addition to this great new, all INGOT Coin holders can now use their ICC in our Brokerage, INGOT Brokers, and start trading over +1000 instruments. 1 ICC equals 1 USD and will be deposited accordingly in INGOT Brokers.

INGOT Coin ICO phase will finished at 10th October. Based on INGOT Coin extensive financial model, we have placed a hard cap of $90,000,000. This number will ensure we provide the best services with optimal allocations into each component of this all-inclusive ecosystem. Everything is going on right now and Dev team is already working on all our product under the favor of reaching the soft cap target. Team has continued to build innovative product and not waiting for finish of our ICO. INGOT Team believes that victory will be the true workers!!

Once an XPR is bought, it can be then liquidated via a the PermianChain Exit Facility or used by midstream companies to claim their rights for the associated barrels of crude oil from the PermianChain platform. Daily production by the suppliers determines how many XPR can be used to claim oil per day. Once an XPR token holder exercises her rights and the transaction order for the barrel is filled, the XPR token will be returned to Treasury and re-listed with new Platform Prospects upon listing Proven Reserves. Blockchain validates each transaction, rights claim and supplier fulfillment for security and transparency on the platform. Shipping logistics would be streamlined as well through the use of digital wallets. Each wallet is registered to a specific buyer and contains that specific buyer’s drop-ship location. Whenever XPR token is exercised for a barrel of oil, the blockchain protocol knows exactly where to ship the order and can calculate shipping / logistic cost to deliver the barrel to the designated location specified in the wallet. This would ultimately reduce cost and streamline business operations for upstream and midstream companies. Thus, increasing the value / price of each XPR, and providing immediate income for the supplier. This could have positive future developments that should potentially allow PermianChain to prove sources of oil and decrease corruption and smuggling of oil as a result of war-torn countries around the world. For the meantime, the PermianChain is a needed solution for the cash flow gap faced by oil companies and for oil producing economies to reduce their risks of deficits.

On the other hand, blockchain can increase project transparency, decrease investor risk and develop into an effective financing tool for quality blockchain projects.Most of ICO’s fail because their product contribution is not needed as well as the fact that no major hearing can link with the product.

TIM Blockchain has been followed a number of ways to measure “success”.
TIM is a two layered blockchain- First layer is root blockchain which only stores Merkle hash of second layer. First layer is very light weight (approx. 4 MB data size). Second layer (Multigraph) is the one which stores all the transaction data in form of blocks. First layer only references the blocks of second layer. Second layer blocks are partitioned using vertical shard. Each node (mobile device / computer running TIM core engine) in TIM network contains entire root blockchain (first layer) and only a part of the second layer blocks. Assuming there are 10,000 nodes in a network, TIM first creates cluster of nodes based on geolocation using partition technology. So, the nodes which belongs to ASIA will be part of ASIA cluster and nodes which belongs to North America will belong to North America cluster. TIM call this clusters as triangles / graphs. The transaction which is originating in North America will participate in triangle of North America. All blocks mined in North America will be stored in each of the nodes which belong to North America region only. However, all the nodes of North America will have complete root blockchain present but only part of second layer blocks which is mined in North America. Similarly, each Node of Asia Cluster (triangle) will contain entire root blockchain of TIM but only part of second layer blocks which is mined in ASIA. This is called as vertical partition of blocks.
In today’s world, most of the blockchain coin prices are driven by scarcity model and hype which is not based on real world use case. None of the blockchain is capable enough to meet the demand of enterprise and governments. They need high transaction rate and security against future thread like quantum attack. Most of the banks are still keeping themselves away from existing blockchains because of high transaction fees, partial decentralism and future quantum attacks. This is where TIM will play an important role in solving real use case of the world. From first day to today, TIM always targets to support high transaction rate (up to 100 million TPS), is quantum secure yet low fee and fully decentralized.
The history of TIM Blockchain was started with product requirement analysis at August 2016. The team determined user expectations for the product, it means that defined the product scope. The team defined an initial set of requirements. In further steps of development, the team created detailed issues for daily task sand linked each task with one or more requirements to keep traceability of development activities with requirements.
Blockchain technology is based on cryptographic algorithms designed to prevent data distortion. Each block includes a hash to the previous block, so it’s impossible to substitute an intermediate block in the ledger.  At February 2017, TIM IOT division has developed the IOT device (ASIC chip) which can directly talk to TIM blockchain. This is developed using PUF technology (Physical Unclonable Function) to prevent spoofing attack, so that no one can create a copy of it and do spoofing attack on Private TIM blockchain Network of our clients. These IOT devices will be used for many purpose like FX transactions on chip, tracking logistics and consignments and many more.
At the end of the 2017, the project concept and prototypes of TIM Blockchain has been developed and team developed the multigraph simulated network system. TIM uses vertical partitioning of blockchain using geolocation of nodes and is dynamic based on demand. (Load of transaction in a given region). This term is called as dynamic sharding and vertical sharding. The network starts with two default graphs across the globe with partition across the equator line. With increase of transactions, the graphs are forked to create more parallel partitions which could increase the overall throughput of the system.
After the whitepaper completion, TIM Blockchain team published a new and pathbreaking model for how cryptography based digital assets, namely cryptocurrencies or tokens in March 2018. It was based on simple premise of utility value, which means that any asset should be as valuable as its usefulness. Additionally, the pre-ICO of TIM Blockchain had been conducted in March 2018 and collected 3000 ETH from more than 200 investors. The ultimate goal is always reaching higher at TIM Blockchain, so the hard cap is determined where TIM Blockchain needs to reach.
TIM team continued with developing the multigraph test network and integrations the POA network on the public Node multigraph in the April 2018. The blockchain security is achieved by the multigraph generated by sharding of TIM network. The key generation works for network size of above 400, therefore has a future readiness feature. The generation mechanism is collaborative, where each of the graph miner computes the isogeny contribution by keeping oneself at the root. The root nature can be easily verified when the block is signed. This also mandates that the block to be created by one of graph miners. To reach this stage, the size of the multigraph is key criteria.
TIM Blockchain has released limited beta for sharding testnet. TIM uses vertical partitioning of blockchain using geolocation of nodes and is dynamic based on demand. This term is called as dynamic sharding and vertical sharding. TIM Blockchain built over Ethereum code base using vertical sharding, on-demand partition, load distribution based on statistical model, DAG based network topology for nodes communication, scoring mechanism using gossip trust protocol, cuckoo filter instead of bloom filter and many more.
Besides the marketing power of TIM Blockchain, project team has established alliances and strategic partnerships across industries in order to enable knowledge creations as well as gaining diverse perspectives from every side of the spectrum. TIM Blockchain aims to cultivate a coordinated global positive community and cooperation on which the basis of integrity and transparency among its members. TIM Blockchain Team are working to expand further, reaching out to larger audiences and achieving the next goal (hard cap), amongst having numerous existing partnerships.
And finally, TIM Blockchain is pleased to announce that the crowd sale has begun at the 15h September 2018 and the fastest contributors got their TIM tokens secured. TIM tokens have been sold to the general public with appropriate KYC and AML compliance. The crowd sale has been conducted on the LAToken platform -https://[Suspicious link removed]/2Oaog0c currently a Top 50 Cryptocurrency Exchange. TIM Blockchain has announced that to help investors in current market conditions, Ethereum price are pegged to US$400. This gives them more TIM tokens than their ether would otherwise buy.
The TIM foundation aims to strengthen communities across the globe using technological advancement and innovation. We are committed to create one of the most viable public, scalable, secure, permission-less blockchain of choice for enterprises, governments and partners.

Teamwork is essential to success and growth. As much as some people like to think they can do it all on their own, the truth is, they can’t. Having a good team of individuals around you not only helps you to stay grounded but also enables you to think in different ways, push boundaries with new ideas and most importantly it provides you with a strong support network. It is important that this team works as one, that everyone has the same end goal and are helping each other to reach it. However, in order to do this there are a few important things to consider.

When several independent ICOs that are working towards a similar goal come in unison to form a business ecosystem, they are better poised to deliver successful results and understand the needs of the customers within the business landscape. Customers and clients also value partnerships and corporate alliances due to reasons such as increased capital, more advisors and proven track record. Collaboration is mutually beneficial for the employees as well as the organization because when they work together, interact and share ideas, they see and understand how others work, think, negotiate and operate.

There is a good example to show the power of alliances for the ICOs. INGOT Coin intends to foster building an interconnected global community of trust and cooperation on which the basis of honesty and transparency between its members exist. The ICOs are all in different industries from Health to Financial services and E-commerce to Real Estate. INGOT Coin, GMEX-Group, BolttCoin, Modern Finance Chain (MFChain), SwachhCoin, Black.Insure, PlaceToRent (PTRT), Bineuro and Stella have all formed a unified front under one alliance. The group of ICOs along with GMEX plan to establish a single platform that will allow all their communities to use their utilities simultaneously. Furthermore, plans of enabling different discounts among each one of the ICOs is being discussed in order to give edge to all participants. The Alliance thinks that by bringing together different ICOs from different industries such as health, insurance, financial services, E-commerce and real estate, and combining the different existing Utility Functions a new meaning to Utility will be created. Instead of having a couple of utility benefits from one ICO, why not have many more benefits from a unified group of ICOs working together? All partners in the alliance will work together to create one user friendly and up-to-date platform providing access to their tokens and utilities.

Being an entrepreneur is hard. Like ducks, entrepreneurs are calm on the surface, while paddling like crazy underneath. Despite the appearance of entrepreneurship being a carefree career path, it is quite the opposite. Some of the unspoken hard truths of entrepreneurship include the fact that it’s stressful across numerous fronts, and the frustrations often have a way to be never-ending. The best way for novice entrepreneurs to avoid certain pitfalls is to learn from the trials and tribulations of more seasoned entrepreneurs, as they are capable to offer insights first-timers can learn from, without going about it the hard way.

The following insights have been provided by some of the top business leaders in high-tech across numerous industries, from blockchain, to med tech, to DIY, finance, and more. When implemented correctly, their combined wisdom is bound to serve as the secret sauce of success for novice entrepreneurs.Gavin Douglas, CEO of iPowow and HIT Protocol


iPowow, a global platform for TV producers and streaming video broadcasters, is introducing the HIT Protocol, a blockchain initiative that will empower all players in the media ecosystem with more opportunities for engagement, revenue, and rewards. Currently, the majority of TV and digital content is still presented to viewers as a one-way experience despite audience demand for more ways to participate. HIT Protocol turns this model on its head and rewards viewers for watching content and getting involved in polls and contests with HIT tokens that have real value in the HIT media ecosystem. “Achieving success as an entrepreneur today is all about anticipating what consumers will want next,” says CEO of iPowow and HIT Protocol, Gavin Douglas. “Given the pace of technological change, it’s important for business leaders to stay up-to-date on the latest developments revolutionizing their respective industries, or risk being left behind.”Where do I get the most up-to-date information?

According to the World Oil Outlook report of 2016, OPEC Member Countries implemented a production adjustment with a target of 32.5 million barrels a day (mb/d) with effect from 1 January 2017. Moreover, the subsequent OPEC and non- OPEC Declaration of Cooperation through the Ministerial Meetings in Vienna (10 December 2016 and 25 May 2017) embraced a production adjustment of 1.2 mb/d for OPEC, together with a production adjustment of around 0.6 mb/d from participating non-OPEC producing countries. The decisions were focused on accelerating the ongoing drawdown of the stock overhang, which is now well underway, as a means to help bring the oil market rebalancing forward.
Through the use of smart contracts, we can now replace paper and complex legal agreements that are cumbersome, difficult to transfer and can be hard to track for the average person and even for sophisticated investors. Our solution for commodity investing (mainly in oil) would be to switch to a digital system along the lines of Bitcoin but linked to an asset. This solution is the PERMIAN Token (XPR). Imagine a vault of oil barrels. The oil barrels are owned by ""Oil-owner Inc."" and the vault is owned by ""Vault Inc."" Vault Inc. has a spectacular reputation and third-party auditors who verify the amount of oil barrels in its vault. Oil-owner Inc. could offer a digital token to the public that represents ownership of the oil barrels and through a smart contract with Vault Inc. maintain a public off-chain registry that relates fractional interest in the gold with the tokens. For every token sold, Oil-owner Inc. transfers ownership to Vault Inc., who holds it on behalf of the token owner. Vault Inc. guarantees redemption of the value price of oil barrels by anyone who can prove ownership through a digital signature. Oil-owner Inc. can take advantage of the fact that Vault Inc. is trusted (and audited). Owners of the tokens rely on Vault Inc.'s representations and not on Oil-owner Inc. (even though Oil-owner Inc. is the token issuer). One of the main advantages would be that buyers of the tokens could know that they are the only person who has received the token, whereas a buyer of a paper certificate has no way of knowing that the same certificate hasn't been sold to multiple people.

Gold is valued based on its chemical and physical properties proven by science and meta-physicists, where it is used in making computers faster than copper, and invoking positive energies in your body or nature based on feng-shui or other such fields. A car is as valuable as smoother ride, reliability and increased life’s efficiency due to it. There is ofcourse an element of pride and possessiveness due to rarity of items as well like vintage cars or precious paintings, but not of raw gold.
How is TIM going to add value?
TIM Blockchain provides 4 breakthroughs:
Fast Mainnet
Subchains where you transact in your own tokens
Geonode for Enterprise Level Security
Hyperlocal Dapps to host taxi, e-commerce and other such nearby selling apps
Each of the above 4 listed features is going to push the crypto adoption curve. If you look at the last 3 major technologies like radio, TV and internet, their adoption curve(S-curve) is very insightful.
There were certain events which led to mass usage of these technologies. For example, radio became portable and industry usage due to war and trade pushed its adoption. Industrial revolution led mechanisation led to need entertainment in newer ways which led to penetration of TV. The technology obviously helped in making the cathode ray tubes more smaller and safe for home use.
This way, we predict the adoption of cryptos to be even faster once safety and usability are established. This is where TIM Blockchain’s enterprise level security by Geonodes and high performance mainnet can help. One should also note that it is not just cyber security, but also regulatory security provided by TIM’s subchains where TIMs are not required for each transactions but only staking. This enables the subchains to make cryptoless transactions thus eliminating one of the key problems of toxicity of cryptos. Cryptocurrencies are mined by many unknown and uncensored group of entities who cannot be managed by any KYC or AML process. One doesn’t know for how these miners acquired their mining devices or resources. Therefore involving cryptocurrencies in transactions is considered as toxic by regulators, and a key reason why Bitcoin and Ethereum are finding hard to please any regulatory approvals.

TIM driven adoption curve — Security, Performance, Efficiency — 100 Million TPS
The above graph tries to depict the adoption drive of cryptos led by TIM Blockchain. Security is of paramount importance. After which businesses and communities can reliably build their products and services on high performance architecture of TIM. TIM can scale upto 100 Million Transactions per second. And this phenomenal speed is required to serve many of the major and micro-transactions for both money as well as valuable information transactions. And lastly, communities will use the geolocation aware network of TIM to host, search and sell their services on Hyperlocal network. Hyperlocal network comprises of all users of TIM who can be identified by their interests. And one can create a commerce for these users based on these interests, based on approval and solicitation mechanism.
So what? Why Invest?
By investing in ICO, you stand to get a large share of tokens at a much lower cost than their utility value. This enables you to host a fast and futuristic business on blockchain of TIM or similarly help some other businesses to help them establish it. TIM Blockchain is going to disrupt how e-commerce is done, and in a collaborative way. And owners of TIM tokens stand to gain from early disruption readiness.
