About buy/sell tokens - that's understandable.

...
Good thing we have a strong relationship with Mauritius government Smiley

largest bank in east Africa and 15th largest in all Africa.

We made our first contacts strategically.

Chris

And that's what I wanted to hear, thank you!

Top banks' presence gives Mauritius blockchain edge

Published on 22 September 2016   

"That Mauritius has one of the biggest banks in Africa and the biggest bank in East Africa positions it to be a 'blockchain valley' that will benefit other countries, says Bitland Global's head, Christopher Bates, after the first Mauritius annual blockchain seminar.

Bates explained that with these banks' presence, Mauritius has the opportunity to establish an off-shore data warehouse that stores a government level blockchain for countries that don't have the capacity for their own blockchain warehouses to use.

"This means that if an area like DRC really wanted to have blockchain tech, but the government couldn't afford the entire transition, that government would be able to use Mauritian government blockchain to store their sensitive information," he explained to ITWeb Africa. "The Mauritian government is meeting with 40 African banks this week to discuss how they are going to increase the economic interplay using Mauritius as a haven and in tandem with blockchain."


People had no idea what was happening because they were looking at the wrong information channels Smiley

THAT is why i have been trying to get people away from HERE as the information source...

In that Photo is Mr. Gerard Sanspeur and also Mr. Atma Narasiah.  I met with them both privately in Mauritius in September, and also just saw Atma again in Kenya.

Shit happens behind close doors that cannot be discussed publicly at these levels.

Have you ever been in a room that has an attendant to make sure all cell phones are taken before entering the room?

I have...

They fast tracked our business registration there, and Bitland was registered as an LTD in Mauritius before I even left the country.

The whole "Regulatory Sandbox" that is being created in Mauritius to prevent the blockchain tech from being stifled by too much regulation came under DIRECT advisement from that September Seminar.  Just go back and read all the press releases.  Follow the news stories.


we HELPED the Mauritian government start the blockchain government push.

It is on record.

By Bitange Ndemo

Posted  Wednesday, December 21   2016 at  19:20

Last week, the Coalition of Automated Legal Application (COALA) invited me to talk at their seventh edition of Blockchain Workshops at Strathmore University. This was in collaboration with the African Development Bank.

SHARE THIS STORY
Majority of the international presenters were young lawyers on a mission to change the world as we know it today.

COALA’s objective of holding the Nairobi workshops was to share knowledge on the emerging technologies within the Blockchain family.

This international multidisciplinary collaborative research and development initiative endeavours to bring clarity in the field of Blockchain technologies, smart contracts and decentralized autonomous applications.

What is Blockchain? Many people simply know it as the technology behind the Bitcoin or other alternative currencies often referred to as cryptocurrency.

However, this is a limited view of this technology that is set to change the world. The broader definition extends beyond currency.

Academics researching the field will call it a distributed database that maintains a continuously-growing list of ordered records called blocks.

Each block contains a time stamp and a link to a previous block. Once the data is recorded, it can never be erased and no retroactive alteration can be made in a block.

This makes it possible for different use cases.

For example, the problems that we have in the Ministry of Land where crooks have been altering records and stealing land from legitimate owners can be dealt with using Blockchain.

Indeed at the workshop we were told that the government is working with IBM to introduce the technology.

There are several other areas of application including monitoring and payment of royalties for the creative industry, monitoring and validating performance in the education sector.

The technology can be applied in virtually every sector, not just in the financial sector as earlier assumed. COALA is involved in many projects that Kenya should pay attention to.

These include: exploring how blockchains, smart contracts and decentralization can impact productivity, economic growth, shared prosperity and civic participation; legal enforceability of smart contracts; Internet of Things; consensus and scalability around optimization and reduction of transaction/co-ordination costs of the information economy as well as privacy, data integrity and national security.

In essence, these workshops were addressing the inevitable future.




now...do you understand what it means for "BITLAND" to be competing against "IBM" in year one of our start up?

That was our competition for this specific contract in Kenya...

guess what...no fucking start up in history can compete with IBM in their first year...sorry...we're just not that full of ourselves...however...the fact that we have IBM as our direct competition now...come on guys...you MUST see that as being validated for the protocol...right?

I mean...just think about that for a second...

Bitland was competing DIRECTLY with IBM for a government contract...

that just happened...

and in fact, in the process, knowing that we could not possibly compete with IBM i just proceeded to bolster the argument FOR IBM...rather than compete as a competitor, I put the concept above Bitland...and NOW you see how strongly the Kenyan government is coming out in favor of Blockchain?

go back a month...you will NOT find this rhetoric coming from the Kenyan government specifically concerning Blockchain.  they have a plan for 2030 digitization path that they just started in 2015.  Blockchain was not a main part of that.

Until last week...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya_Vision_2030


"Kenya Vision 2030 (Swahili: Ruwaza ya Kenya 2030) is the country's development programme from 2008 to 2030. It was launched on 10 June 2008 by President Mwai Kibaki.[1][2] Its objective is to help transform Kenya into a "newly industrializing, middle-income (income exceeding World's average currently at US$10000) country providing a high quality of life to all its citizens by 2030 in a clean and secure environment."[3] Developed through "an all-inclusive and participatory stakeholder consultative process, involving Kenyans from all parts of the country," the Vision is based on three "pillars": Economic, Social, and Political.[4] The Vision's adoption comes after the country’s GDP growth went from 0.6% in 2002 to 6.1% in 2006,[5] under Kibaki's Economic Recovery Strategy for Wealth and Employment Creation (ERS).

The Kenya Vision 2030 is to be implemented in successive five-year plans, with the first such plan covering the period 2008–2012. Under the Vision, Kenya expected to meet its Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by the deadline in 2015, although this has not been achieved."

Understand, Bitland will be able to register properties in Kibera that the IBM people won't dare go near...

First thing I did was tour the slums...Vitalik didn't tour the slums...the IBM people didn't tour the slums...


Vitalik stayed his ass in the tourist zones. 


Nothing against him/them, but that is not how you register the properties in Kibera.

You have to start to understand these places before you can just go in there and register their properties.

I bolstered their argument knowing they are going to fail a shitload in the poorest areas, and we will be right there with good data ready to hand it to them and ask for a partnership deal Wink


i know what i am doing...

"Kibera (Nubian: Forest or Jungle[1]) is a division of Nairobi Area, Kenya, and neighbourhood of the city of Nairobi, 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) from the city centre.[2] Kibera is the largest slum in Nairobi, and the largest urban slum in Africa.[2][3][4] The 2009 Kenya Population and Housing Census reports Kibera's population as 170,070, contrary to previous estimates of one or two million people.[5] Other sources suggest the total Kibera population may be 500,000 to well over 1,000,000 depending on which slums are included in defining Kibera.[6][7][8][9]

Most of Kibera slum residents live in extreme poverty, earning less than $1.00 per day. Unemployment rates are high. Persons living with HIV in the slum are many, as are AIDS cases.[10] Cases of assault and rape are common. There are few schools, and most people cannot afford education for their children. Clean water is scarce. Diseases caused by poor hygiene are prevalent. A great majority living in the slum lack access to basic services, including electricity, running water, and medical care.

The Government initiated a clearance programme to replace the slum with a residential district of high rise apartments, and relocating the residents to these new buildings upon completion."

http://www.healthiestvillage.org/

"
Established by a young South African doctor in response to the grim state of healthcare he encountered in the area while working at the local district hospital; Africa's Healthiest Village attempts to tackle both the underlying socioeconomic and physiological drivers of this cycle of ill health.

Our current scope of work in the village has spawned from an initial task of running a fishing co-operative in the village as a means to  provide a financially sustainable way for members of the community to have access to dietary protein. This paradigm of 'social entrepreneurship' has excited young local innovators and we are now looking to match the growing fervour for change with the infrastructure needed to translate ideas into progress.

Tsweleni Village

Situated deep in the heart of the rural Transkei, our village in nestled in the spectacular coastline of the Indian Ocean. Our warm subtropical climates means that there is never a bad time to come visit."


So...for example...have been in the process of setting up operations in South Africa with the Tsweleni Village to build a soccer academy, farm, and tech innovation center.  All that can be done for around $250k and have recycled materials, high quality equipment for the community, and a large farm that is producing crops and cash.  


Everyone keeps watching the token price, and not what we are doing on the ground.

Great, Chris! I like what you do!
I think people are talking more about the price of tokens, because they do not have enough information about what you do on the ground.
Continue to lay out the details of what you are doing, and I think that people will ask less questions on the cost of the token, because she's just going to grow.

Thank you sir(ma'am?)!

Am sitting here wondering why the bitland global account would have sold off 3,000,000 tokens at .5> bts?

Not a promising move if you anticipate them going for 10$ a pop one day

  If he is actually having to sell cadastrals at 0.1 BTS to pay bills this will end quickly... Looking back the account has been dumping all the while promoting and blaming traders

  Some of the transactions older than the past week look like market making and trades. I would be very upset if I paid 30k sats per cadastral that was offered at the ICO and they were now selling for less than 50 sats. I think some explaining is necessary..

  I would have not invested except that it was promoted by CCEDK which is some DD but I guess they have abandoned their investment. Has anybody asked Ronnie at CCEDK about the strange happenings..
