After the Wild West, the Next Generation of Crypto Companies are Advancing the Industry

Back in the ICO boom of late 2017 and 2018, it was too easy for anyone to enter the crypto space with little more than a white paper and a sales pitch. However, once their ICO was over and the spending sprees started, even the most well-intentioned projects struggled to sustain themselves. A quick browse through Deadcoins shows that many simply burned through their funds and ultimately never brought a product to market.
Now, the crypto market is starting to grow up. The community has been burned by too much hype around useless niche products too many times. Therefore, the pressure is on tech startups to demonstrate they have solid business acumen together with a sustainable plan for the future.
As more and more Mainnets launch, there is also increasing recognition of the importance of interoperability. A standalone product is like a lone tree in a lightning storm, prone to being hit.
Interoperability means becoming an integral part of a thriving blockchain-based ecosystem. Those who understand the importance of developing this ecosystem are the ones who stand the best chance of surviving in the long term.
Here’s an overview of three companies with a strong focus on playing the long game and driving towards an interoperable ecosystem.
A significant factor that led to the explosion of ICOs in 2017 and 2018 was the existence of the ERC-20 token standard. Now, regulatory clampdowns mean ICO’s will be treated as securities. Therefore, many startups are turning to the security token offering (STO) as a means of crowdfunding.
Polymath is aiming to replicate the success of ERC-20 through its own offering, the ST-20 token standard. This provides a compliant means for founders to fund their visions, and as it stands, over 100 tokens have already launched using Polymath. It’s a complete turnkey solution for running an STO without falling foul of the regulators.
At the recent Consensus 2019 event in New York City, Polymath confirmed that it will develop a separate blockchain for regulation-compliant tokens with Ethereum co-founder and Cardano developer Charles Hoskinson.
Polymath also operates a treasury. The company has locked up 75 million of its own tokens for five years. This treasury approach provides a long-term, sustainable option for funding future endeavors.
ChangeNOW offers non-custodial crypto exchange services without limits or registration required. Using ChangeNOW, a user can trade in their chosen cryptos in just five easy steps with no hassle. They simply select their tokens for selling and buying, and the interface determines the best available rate at the time. The user receives the address for sending funds and provides their own address for receipt. It’s that simple.
ChangeNOW is working hard on establishing many partnerships across the crypto landscape. It has relationships with exchanges including Binance, Bittrex, and Bitfinex, and wallet providers such as Ledger, Trezor, and Atomic Wallet. The company recently received the endorsement of Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) for it’s NOW token to become one of the first listed on the newly launched Binance DEX.
The company has also been rolling out a series of innovative features for its users. It now offers a zero-fee public Lightning node, which enables instant payments and cross-chain atomic swaps. It also has a service called NOWpayments, which allows vendors to start accepting cryptocurrency payments through a native integration to their platform, or through a widget.
For startups which want to swap out their ICO tokens to ones issued on their own main net, ChangeNOW also offers a dedicated token migration service. Finally, in keeping with the growing trend of exchanges operating a loyalty program, ChangeNOW will also be opening up its VIP Lounge, which provides premium benefits to members.
LiquidApps exists to remove barriers to dApp adoption, both for users and developers. It’s achieving this through the operation of its DAPP Network, the backbone of which is the Dapp Service Provider (DSP) and the DAPP token.
A DSP can be any individual or entity which meets the requirement for becoming an EOS block producer. A DSP can then sell services over the DAPP Network in exchange for DAPP tokens.
LiquidApps is rolling out services thick and fast. The first was vRAM, which is compatible with EOS RAM but without the limitations and consequent supply-and-demand challenges of the latter. Next up was vAccounts, which allows developers to offer a dApp-specific account for new users, removing the requirement for users to have to buy RAM to open an EOS account.
Now the company is offering a host of new services, which includes the potential for inter-blockchain communication with its new ChainOracle XIBC service. It allows developers to bring in sources of external information (for example, from other blockchains or even the internet) to their dApp, which has previously been challenging due to the deterministic requirements of a blockchain. Using the LiquidApps solution, external data can be verified by a DSP in such a way as to retain the integrity of the network and root out bad actors.
By enabling communication between blockchains in this way, LiquidApps is aiding the development of an interoperable ecosystem. In turn, the company is carving out a role for itself in that ecosystem long into the future.
These three companies are leading the way in taking a long-term view alongside working to build a flourishing blockchain ecosystem. These developments are reliable indicators that the days of the crypto wild west are coming to an end, and the sector is now entering the next stage of maturity. This growth can only work for the benefit of all participants.

How to protect users assets on a blockchain – The Nebulas approach

On April 26th, 2019, RChain posted a blog message stating that their president, Greg Meredith held a meeting with potential investors in Spain during the weekend of April 20, 2019. After a KYC approval, funds from the investor entered 3rd party escrow and RChain distributed 11 million RHOC tokens to the buyers wallet address. Shortly after, it was found out that the buyers fund deposit was fraudulent. Immediately following these events, RChain proceeded to contact the FBI, local Spanish authorities as well as the exchange KuCoin to block the distribution of these illegally obtained tokens. At this point, RChain which claims to be building “Ethereum 2.0” is once again on the verge of collapse. Just last month on March 5th, RChain held a discussion with its board of directors to discuss bankruptcy liquidation.
The events that took place is not a one-time occurrence within the blockchain ecosystem and in fact, blockchain technology has given birth to a new class of scammers. Looking back at cases of asset theft within the blockchain world: the DAO attack which is one of the most well known attacks resulted in the loss of over 60 million dollars worth of Ethereum; In 2018, hackers attacked IOTA and made off with approximately 4 million dollars worth of digital assets; EOS was also victim due to an exploit in a smart contract resulted in the loss of millions of dollars; the exchange Coincheck in Japan was attacked and lost a staggering $534 million dollars due to a fraudulent transfer and this is just the tip of a very large iceberg. According to Beosin [Chengdu Chain Security], there were nearly 100 global security incidents within blockchain during 2018 with a loss exceeding $2 billion USD!
As for the case with RChain, which was at one time the world’s top 30 cryptocurrency-based on market capital quickly went to the very edge of bankruptcy. Is there a root cause of asset loss within the blockchain? RChain is highly diversified in terms of technology, team and ecological framework. They have even announced ecological partnerships with Reflective Ventures and Pithia Inc.; however, one thing that cannot be ignored is that via a survey of the of RChain community, many believe that decisions from their president have caused huge losses to the project.
When looking back at theft within exchanges and other blockchain projects, the cause is not always due to an error by executive decision-makers or technical mistakes. When these issues arise, the solution for many projects is to attempt recovery, freeze the digital assets via blacklisting the fraudulent address and to work with exchanges to make it near impossible for the thief to liquidate the stolen assets.
Many of these issues have occurred due to human error and not fully ensuring the ownership of each users digital assets within the project. Basically, it stems from a lack of respect for the asset holders. However, within the blockchain world, Nebulas believes that each user is sacred and secure ownership of their digital assets is a fundamental right.
On April 15th, 2019, the Nebulas mainnet network was upgraded to version 2.0 and Nebulas NOVA was officially launched. At a press conference during the release, co-founder Aero Wang said that
“The assets of the token holders are inviolable and are required to maintain the normal operation of the Nebulas ecosystem.”
Within the Nebulas blockchain, the sole unit of governance is the address of the main network and there are three fundamental rights for all address on Nebulas:

First, the right to own and utilize assets on Nebulas;
Second, the right to initiate a proposal;
Third, the right to vote.

The Nebulas co-founder gave an example at the press conference:
“Suppose you have bitcoin and one day Bitcoin suffers a large scale attack. The result is that your assets have been hijacked or seized. Is this situation unfortunate? Through blockchain, assets are guaranteed by power; is this the biggest meaning?”
His belief is that this is not the case because all assets, including legal currency, are not completely protected by power.
“According to the consensus of all participants, Nebulas will guarantee and ensure that the legitimacy of assets come from consensus and not just from a single entity. If one day the Nebulas mainnet encounters a 51% attack, we would have to roll back the network to retain full legitimacy. In truth, this issue is beyond technology. My private key has not been lost, I am a legitimate participant, my assets have been hijacked and of course, I have the right to have them returned. In this scenario, technical abilities can justify a network rollback. No one within Nebulas can freeze your assets. Your assets belong to you and this right is sacred and inviolable.”
The process of creating an on-chain economy needs to be decided by all users within that network via a fair and transparent system. As of April 23, 2019, on-chain voting went live with two important proposals: The first proposal titled “Gas fee” proposes a modification to the current network transaction fee from 106 wei to 2×1010 wei which will assure network security by mitigating potential DDos attacks and will provide assurance for the future ecological development of Nebulas.
The second proposal titled “Arthur proposal” proposes a modification to all parameters/functions of Nebulas Rank [NR] and Developer Incentive Protocol [DIP]. If approved, the parameters related to NR and Developer Incentive Protocol [DIP] will be determined by community members and developers. With these modifications integrated, users will be able to better participate in the ecological development of Nebulas.
Many wonder how the Nebulas blockchain will be upgraded once proposals are approved. To complete the implementation of proposals, Nebulas will utilize its Nebulas Blockchain Runtime Environment [NBRE] which allows for the autonomous upgrade of the network without human intervention. Once proposals are approved by the global community, any revised code is reviewed, approved and essentially uploaded to the network via a signed transaction containing the improved code.
By competing upgrades in this manner, the entire community must decide together and come to a consensus which demonstrates how Nebulas considers the rights of each and every user. Moreover, in the future, community members can continue to propose more technical proposals and even have them committed without any central authority intervention which is a long-term goal of Nebulas’ decentralization plan.

Ontology’s VBFT Algorithm sets new standard for blockchain consensus

Ontology introduced its VBFT consensus algorithm last year and the project has continued to build momentum over the past several months. This is big news in the world of blockchain as the PoWand BFT consensus algorithms are what most mainstream public chains are using today.
Ontology hopes that the VBFTalgorithm will replace those commonly used, as they believe they have solved some of the major problems that lie within them. VBFT improves on the performance and scalability of public chains all while guaranteeing the randomness and fairness of a consensus network.
Other algorithms have been known to cause problems that hinder both the performance and the scalability of public chains.
Ontology’s improved platform will help dApp developers harness their creativity to its maximum potential and remove limitations imposed by inefficient algorithms with poor performance.
As the dApp developers lie at the center of the blockchain ecosystem, Ontology believes that the changes they are implementing will provide greater flexibility and further the ability of the developers to create new and innovative applications.
Constant improvements are being made to VBFT, and large-scale and long-term practices are in progress to track the performance of this new consensus mechanism.
Currently, the unreliability of nodes and the instability of communication between nodes suggests a problem with most consensus algorithms.
That problem is consistency. However, with Ontology’s new consensus algorithm, multiple unreliable node groups can be built into a reliable distributed system to achieve stability of data sets and improve system reliability. The blockchain, a decentralized peer-to-peer network, relies on the consensus algorithm to enable the order of transaction processing among the dispersed nodes.
The consensus algorithm also provides functionality for the incentive [i.e. mining] and governance models of the system.
Consensus algorithms have different fault tolerance capabilities and can be classified as Crash Fault Tolerance [CFT] or Byzantine Fault Tolerance [BFT] based on their node failure response. The CFT algorithm only ensures the reliability of the distributed system when nodes have downtime; when nodes violate consensus protocol, reliability is compromised.
For these reasons, the CFT algorithm is more applicable in the closed distributed system of the enterprise. With the BFT algorithm, so long as errors occur within a pre-defined ratio of nodes, the system is reliable. As a result, BFT-based algorithms, such as Ontology’s VBFT, are more suitable for the open distributed systems of public blockchains.
The consensus algorithm can further be divided into three types: synchronous, semi-synchronous, and asynchronous. A synchronous consensus algorithm requires that messages within a system can reach all nodes within a known amount of time. Naturally, it is mainly used in networks of limited scale.
An asynchronous algorithm removes the condition of messages reaching all nodes within a certain timeframe. However, asynchronous algorithms present problems guaranteeing the final result of consensus. For this reason, asynchronous algorithms are inefficient and have limited applications in this area.
A semi-synchronous algorithm, as the name suggests, ensures a relationship exists between the probability and delay for messages reaching consensus nodes within a set time. Today, most mainstream blockchains, including Ontology’s VBFT, are based on a semi-synchronous network model.
So, what is VBFT exactly?
VBFT is a new consensus algorithm that combines PoS (Proof of Stake), VRF [Verifiable Random Function], and BFT. VBFT is the core consensus algorithm of the Ontology Consensus Engine. Ontology’s core network is comprised of two main components.
The consensus network consists of the consensus nodes that are responsible for maintaining the blockchain, generating blocks, distributing consensus blocks to synchronous node networks, and overseeing transaction requests.
The second component of Ontology’s core network is the consensus candidate network which remains synchronized with the consensus network and continuously updates the consensus blocks on the blockchain. This all happens in real time which helps Ontology achieve top performance without sacrifice.
The candidate networks also validate consensus blocks, monitor the consensus network status, and assist in managing the Ontology network. It is also important to note that the size of the consensus network is managed through a consensus network smart contract which is beneficial for both the producer and consumers of this technology.
VBFT works by first selecting consensus candidate nodes within the Ontology network. Block verification and confirmation nodes are set, and then consensus is ultimately completed by aselected node group.
This ensures that theplatform always provides sufficient randomness and fairness to the users involved. All nodes in the network eventually receive the consensus result of the confirmation node before starting a new round of consensus. This ensures that the algorithm runs smoothly, quickly, and continuously.
Ontology’s consensus network is built by the Ontology Consensus Management Smart Contract, which runs permanently on the network. It provides regular updates to the node list in the consensus network and updates the VBFT algorithm. This provides the user with an up to date experience every time they use the platform.
After testing the VBFT algorithm, Ontology produced results that surpassed the results of other mainstream public chains in terms of efficiency, consensus confirmation time, resource consumption, and manageability.
Their network also contained the fewest malicious nodes. In April of this year, Ontology improved the network by increasing the number of consensus nodes from seven to eight.
Development of mainstream consensus algorithms continues to follow a trend to improve the performance, scalability, and decentralization of public blockchains. Ontology’s VBFT consensus has similar goals and has already made significant strides in improving the effectiveness and performance of blockchain ecosystems.
It is clear, with all the work that has gone into Ontology, this high-performance consensus algorithm is certainly ready to meet the needs of all businesses.

SignRequest introduces blockchain-backed electronic signatures with LTO Network

SignRequest, one of Europe’s leading electronic signing providers, added a new blockchain solution to its electronic signature application. By integrating the Dutch-based blockchain platform LTO Network, they enable blockchain technology as an option for more than 1 million users worldwide, resulting in over 300,000 monthly transactions on LTO Network public chain.
Over the last few years, the adoption of the digital signature has seen an immense rise in the corporate landscape. Whereas just years ago, scanners and couriers had a significant part in the concluding of a ‘wet signature’ agreement, the digital signature has become embedded widely in finance and legal departments.
Industries that are traditionally slow on widely adopting new technologies, with digital signatures appearing to be the exception to this rule.
This multi-billion dollar industry with a 31% per year compound annual growth rate shows the stretch that this technology still has to offer.
With the future in mind, in which novel solutions allow digital signatures to become digital workflows that save money, increase efficiency and move businesses forward, these projected growth numbers even seem rather conservative.
Michaël Krens, CTO of SignRequest remarked,
“Using the blockchain for Proof-of-Existence for electronic signatures just makes sense and is already happening. When we researched blockchain platforms, LTO Network stood out in terms of speed, set-up, and capabilities. We are able to include the blockchain transaction identifier directly into our signing logs which are circulated upon signing without the need to wait minutes for confirmations. Next, to that, the potential of creating decentralized workflows did the trick to add the LTO Network solution as an option to our users.”
Rick Schmitz, CEO of LTO Network mentioned,
“The LTO public blockchain is optimized for anchoring transactions, making it light and effective. Using the so-called Bitcoin-NG protocol, the network pre-approves transactions instantly before the hashes are stored on LTO Network.  This makes the LTO Network ideal for Proof-of-Existence on documents, emails, and other off-chain data.”
To really differentiate yourself from other players in the electronic signature landscape, you have to think outside the box. You can trust SignRequest systems, or any other signature provider, that the time of signing stated in the audit trail is the correct one, but with enabling blockchain technology our users now have the possibility to have hundreds of other systems verifying this as well and thus eliminating the need to trust a single party.
Rick Schmitz, CEO of LTO Network said,
“SignRequest is a perfect example of a forward thinking company who sees the blockchain landscape and narrative maturing. Millions of transactions per year will immensely stimulate LTO Network’s usage and the trust in it.”

Healthereum, the blockchain platform for modern healthcare

Safety and rewards both have essential places in the current work. It is the age of technology, and so more and more businesses are availing the blockchain platform to add a layer to themselves. The same is happening with healthcare which is a crucial part of the society and will be at certain times. Without adequate technology, healthcare cannot progress, and it cannot possibly accept everyone into its sphere.
A blockchain platform can transform it into a wholesome one where everything from payments to bookkeeping to patient-doctor interaction can happen smoothly. Already, a lot of the healthcare industry has been thinking about moving in such a direction.
With a start-up such as Healthereum LLC, this becomes a reality for the healthcare industry. Apart from keeping the complete data safe, it also acts as the platform which can fill the gap between a patient and their healthcare provides, a patient engagement platform. The start-up focuses on patient incentives for fulfilling tasks requested by one’s doctor. Rewards are always a great way to motivate people. So, the rewards that one gets can be used to gather more patient data which is needed to better one at providing excellent healthcare. The platform is a global blockchain, and the reward that one gets is in the form of HEALTH tokens.
The reward works as such that the patients will want to get rewards and for that they will need to: meet their appointments at the right time, fill out surveys, and engage with other healthcare tasks. Along with that, the doctors are connected to the patients even after they have left the clinic. Through the blockchain platform, the doctors can send messages to their patients and vice versa. The patient interface is known as HELIO or Healthereum Life Portfolio. And for healthcare providers, it is called HELIO[S] or HELIO Syndicate. The provider can send rewards to the patients once they complete the specified tasks. They can use the rewards in return of healthcare benefits from the providers whenever they need it. It creates a cycle of tokens between the healthcare providers and the patients.
Who will be the participants in Healthereum?
As the blockchain is related to health, it is evident that it wouldn’t be just a doctor and patient platform. There will be several other participants who become a part of this global healthcare blockchain. Some of them include the individual who is signing up for the platform as a patient, the provider who is trying to help people who need their help, the hospitals who are in partnership with the doctors so that they can approve them and also help them, corporations, the government, and the insurers all are participants. Everyone has equal parts to play in the platform which will provide it the wholesomeness that it needs to perform well.
What about Security Tokens?
To make the Healthereum platform a reality people need to invest in the idea. So, what is the surety that their investment will become a success? To answer this question, security tokens are significant for such services. Healthereum does have security tokens which are like an added layer of trust just like it happens in the stock market. Their security tokens are known as HLTH, and they are different from the utility tokens distributed in the platform. HLTH represents a unit ownership of Healthereum. Even a country like the US has made it mandatory to prevent ICO fraud.
This idea will be beneficial for the provider as well as for the investors. In all, Healthereum strives to eradicate the inconsistencies present in the healthcare field and sores to make it a better place for everyone. The blockchain platform can be the next big step that healthcare currently needs.

Nebulas NOVA: The dawn of a collaborative future

On April 15 [UTC+8], 2019, the renowned public blockchain project Nebulas held an exclusive press conference in Beijing, China to officially announce the launch of a new and much-improved version of their blockchain-Nebulas NOVA.
This release includes upgrades to the core functions of the Nebulas mainnet and is now the first as well as the only public blockchain with worldwide native, on-chain incentives for its users. This unique incentive structure will allow for the essential support of community collaboration unlike the blockchain ecosystem has yet to see.
The topic of the press conference was “Nebulas Nova: The Dawn of a Collaborative Future” and in total 200 distinguished guests were invited. Guests included blockchain industry leaders, Nebulas ecological partners, representatives of community developers, community members as well as other institutions and media attended.
During this event, Nebulas founder Hitters Xu, co-founder Aero Wang and the leader of the Nebulas Research Institute Dr. Xuepeng Fan gave keynote speeches sharing more about governance principles of the Nebulas community, the implication of these principles towards community collaboration and related technical development.
Community governance is a very hot topic for the entire blockchain industry in 2019 and was a primary topic at the press conference. Following the creation of Bitcoin and its “hologram” of information, Nebulas aims to create a new “hologram” of organized collaboration.
Nebulas’ goal is to let everyone-including organizations develop under a unified, open and transparent set of community governance rules via the power of decentralization, project-based development, on-chain voting systems, and the powerful tools incorporated into Nebulas NOVA.
In fact, NOVA represents a giant breakthrough in the bottleneck of decentralized collaboration via technical innovation hence providing a better ecosystem of asset distribution and management for Nebulas community governance.
At the press conference, Nebulas founder Hitters Xu expressed the opinion that NOVA has introduced “Smart Assets” that will leverage the great potential of decentralized cooperation. He considers them “Smart Assets” because they are programmable, manageable and usable. In return, all digital asset holders are now users that can play a large role in future ecosystem development and be part of the sustainable, prospering ecosystem with positive incentives.
Currently, the public blockchain industry lacks the competence to attract consistent and excellent developers as well as features to carry out self-evolution with minimal disruption or friction to the users. Nebulas NOVA will accomplish seamless and transparent upgrades via three core technical features: Nebulas Rank [NR], Nebulas Blockchain Runtime Environment [NBRE] and Developer Incentive Protocol [DIP].
Specifically, NR measures the contribution of all on-chain accounts to the digital economy. It incorporates excellent anti-cheating capabilities and extensive scalability that can cater to many different scenarios which will provide long-term and highly effective incentives for developers.
To achieve frictionless upgradability, NBRE is an execution environment and provides upgrade functionality to NR, DIP and is a core technology that will support Nebulas self-evolution.
In addition, Nebulas utilizes Just-in-time compilation technology that can execute Nebulas Protocol Representation [NRP] which gives the network autonomous upgrades to core protocols.
For example, Nebulas NOVA provides the capability for community members to upgrade and adjust the parameters or implementation of developer incentives at any time without affecting standard upgrades to the Nebulas core which will ensure the effectiveness of DIP.
Currently, the Nebulas mainnet supports around 260,000 accounts, over 6,800 active DApps and has exceeded 1 million transactions in a single day – all while retaining stability. Nebulas have also received academic and government recognition and previously placed third of all public blockchain projects by the CCID research institute under MIIT.
Nebulas NOVA represents the second phase for Nebulas to truly become an Autonomous Metanet and the release of NOVA is the first step towards this intention.
The future of collaboration is coming: After Nebulas NOVA goes live, both developers and everyday users of the blockchain can extensively participate in ecological development and jointly realize Nebulas’ core vision: Let everyone benefit fairly from decentralized collaboration.

The Booming IEO Market
This is the second IEO project that has debuted on BitMart Exchange. Earlier in March, BitMart launched an eight-day Kasoutuuka News[KTN] Sale and all the rounds were finished in just a few seconds. Following successful IEOs from Binance and other exchanges, the craze for IEOs appears to mimic the Initial Coin Offering [ICO] in 2017.
It’s been one of the largest increases in price, volume and market cap in months. BTC rallied to $5,400 while other altcoins also saw impressive double-figure gains, leading most to believe the crypto winter was over and a more promising season is upon us.

BORA Blockchain Ecosystem Obtains First Technology Patents

Spring is upon us and the BORA team is working hard to finalize services ahead of the official launch of their platform. Today, we will take a closer look at BORA’s patented technologies.
One of the strengths of the BORA team is its technological prowess. As creators of a blockchain-based digital content platform, BORA’s development team consists of IT experts who specialize in platform and service development as well as infrastructure deployment and operations. The BORA team is committed to achieving its goal of creating a healthy blockchain ecosystem by developing globally competitive blockchain technology.
In the blockchain lab led by Director Chun Kyung-Wook of the Research and Development Institute, specialized blockchain technologies are being developed. From security technology to real-time smart contracts, a wide range of studies are underway to construct a base blockchain platform serving BORA digital content. Developing and patenting critical technologies was the goal of the institute since its founding, and they have recently taken their first step towards that goal by formally applying for patents in Korea and the United States. Let’s explore the technology behind the patent obtained in Korea.
This patent concerns the method of token and server management based on heterogeneous blockchain networks. In simple terms, this is in relation to BORA’s dual token structure, which can be summarized by the graphic below.
Source: Block72
If a user who owns BORA Tokens [first cryptocurrency] requests an exchange with BORA Shell [second cryptocurrency], the token management server transfers ownership of the BORA Tokens [first cryptocurrency] from the user on the public blockchain to the token management server. The corresponding ownership of the BORA Shell [second cryptocurrency] allows the token management server to transfer BORA Shell [second cryptocurrency] to the user, enabling the user to use services linked with the private blockchain.
Conversely, if a user who owns BORA Shell [secondcryptocurrencyy] requests an exchange for BORA Tokens [first cryptocurrency], the token management server transfers the user’s ownership of the BORA Shell [second cryptocurrency] to the token management server, which eradicates the BORA Shell [second cryptocurrency] and transfers ownership of the BORA Tokens [first cryptocurrency] corresponding to the discarded Shell from the token management server to the user.
Source: Block72
BORA currently supports two types of tokens: the BORA Token based on Ethereum’s ERC-20 standard and point-like BORA Shell which circulates only within the BORA ecosystem. The BORA Token is connected with the Ethereum network like other ERC-20-based tokens, enabling user-to-user transactions on cryptocurrency exchanges. However, BORA Shell can only be obtained through exchange with the BORA Token, and its purpose is specific to payments for services within the BORA platform.
Since BORA Shell can only be used within the BORA platform, all transaction and use records related to BORA Shell are stored within BORA’s private chain, the BORA chain. As such, the exchange and use of BORA Shell do not incur any fees.
With this dual token structure, BORA has managed to solve issues that plague existing tokens, such as the burden of gas fees in traditional blockchain environments. They have also reduced the risk of instability and value reduction of digital content assets.
Because BORA Shell is used for all services on the BORA platform, users can utilize BORA Shell for different services or switch to BORA Tokens at any time, even if the content in the BORA ecosystem is removed. This mechanism ensures that users’ digital asset values are protected. Furthermore, all data is recorded on the blockchain and accessible to everyone, providing better security.
The dual token structure also solves speed issues present in Ethereum ERC-20 tokens, enabling users to quickly and easily purchase, use, and sell digital content using the BORA Shell proprietary encryption currency.
Beyond the patented technology discussed above, BORA has domestic and international patents pending for two other technologies which they will provide further information on in the near future.
The BORA team is focused on perfecting its technology ahead of the official launch coming soon. They are currently collecting feedback from the second beta version of their platform which is open to the public now. Check out the beta platforms of BORA Lagoon and BORA Atoll

BuySellHodl, the ultimate crypto app for real-time coin ratings and price predictions, has updated its results for its industry-leading live bitcoin price prediction feature. With the recent impressive 25% increase in bitcoin’s price over the last week, it’s not surprising to see that the BuySellHodl user-driven bitcoin predictions have become even more bullish. Recently updated results include:

76% of users said to ‘Buy’ BTC, compared to 70% two weeks ago.
Only 5% of users said to ‘Sell’ BTC, which is half of last week’s 10% rate.
59% of users selected BTC as one of their top three picks, up from 57% two weeks ago.
40% of users predicted a BTC price of over $10,000 in 2020.
65% of users predicted a BTC price of over $25,000 in 2025.

The newly launched BuySellHodl bitcoin price prediction app queries its users for their opinions and predictions regarding numerous cryptocurrencies and updates the results daily on their website, iPhone and Android Bitcoin App.

Bitcoin Price Prediction Trend
In order to accurately gauge the crypto sentiment trends, BuySellHodl publishes the previous period’s results as well as the current predictions. This comparison screenshot shows that users continue to remain very bullish on bitcoin, with 76% saying to buy it. This compares quite favorably to only 5% saying to sell it, which is the lowest rate we’ve seen since our bitcoin price prediction feature was launched. This categorically leads to an overall ‘Buy’ rating for bitcoin. Note: Each period currently consists of two weeks.
Will Bitcoin Someday Become the World’s Reserve Currency?
One of the more compelling questions in the crypto-sphere is, “Can a cryptocurrency, such as bitcoin, replace the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency?”
Many industry experts believe this to be a highly plausible scenario, often supporting their opinion with analysis predicting that bitcoin’s valuation could exceed $100,000 in the near future. Most recently, Thinkmarkets chief market analyst Naeem Aslam said that bitcoin could reach that mark during the next bull run.
BuySellHodl asked users this question to gauge their opinions on this thought-provoking scenario. The results reveal very differing opinions, with 13% saying ‘no chance,’ while 7% claiming it’s ‘very likely’ or ‘a sure thing’ that bitcoin will someday replace the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency. For more detailed data, note the following breakdown:
QUESTION: “What are the chances that bitcoin overtakes the U.S. dollar as the main currency of the world within 10 years?”
