Environmental Sustainability is a Hot Topic Right Now – Earth Token

28 November 2017, Mauritius – As the urgency of climate change continues to grow, so is awareness of the issue. Every day, companies and individuals decide to do their part by investing in natural assets like solar and wind, waste to energy, carbon sequestration, and others.


Earth Token

However, there is still no universal platform where producers and consumers of this asset class can connect directly and exchange value. This creates an inefficient system ruled by middlemen who provide little to no value and charge high fees, resulting in less money going to the production of these assets and the implementation of environmental sustainability solutions that leverage them.

ImpactChoice, a company that provides environmental sustainability solutions for enterprises, saw the opportunity to create a new environment where both the producers and consumers of the Natural Asset class could thrive, impervious to the middleman economy that dominates our current financial system.

This quest has taken ImpactChoice to the realm of blockchain technology and smart contracts, both of which will be leveraged in its upcoming decentralized Natural Asset Exchange. This platform will allow natural asset producers to list their products without the need to pay registration or escrow fees and without transaction limits or restrictions.

The platform will be fueled by Earth Token, an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency that will act as the settlement currency for the platform, allowing transactions to be transparent and immutable while also providing low transaction fees. Since EARTH will be the sole currency of the platform, no conversion fees will be charged to either seller or buyer.

The Natural Asset Exchange and the Earth Token will empower both the producers of Natural Assets and its consumers, giving them full autonomy and charging no middleman fees whatsoever. This will allow producers and consumers to direct more funds to the creation and implementation of environmental sustainability projects.

The main sale period has also been extended to coincide with the launch of the NAE exchange. The token sale extension period is also expected to allow for more prospective supply side natural asset partners to join the NAE at launch, as they will have more time to integrate their systems and trial the NAE Beta.

Token holders want to see the value of their token appreciate and they want to see the project succeed. Furthermore, they want to know that the team behind EARTH Token will do their utmost to make the Natural Asset Exchange a success.

The EARTH Token pre-sale will now end 15 ~December 2017 12:00 GMT marking the start of the Sale Period which ends 15 March 2018 12:00 GMT.

$81,000 Black Friday Win on FaFa Twins at BitStarz!

BitStarz player tries her luck on Black Friday and comes out with an $81,000 single spin win!


Tuesday, Nov 28, 2017 – $81,000 was landed in a single spin at BitStarz on Black Friday!

Black Friday has always been a fantastic day for finding discounted stuff, and everyone loves a great deal. At BitStarz, they can’t really put the slots on sale mode, but nevertheless, it turns out the popular slot FaFa Twins embraced this shopping day to the fullest!

One lucky player decided to throw in a few dollars on the slot (perhaps she had saved some money fighting for that new Xbox at the local store) to try her luck. After all, FaFa Twins has paid out big in the past too.

After just a few spins, she managed to land a multiplier of over 2,000 x the original bet, enough to make any deal made on Black Friday quite obsolete in comparison. But that wasn’t all. The player also managed to multiple big wins of 14,000, 12,000 and 10,000 on Wolf Gold. What a day!

This was just one month after a lucky player managed to land $93,000 in Wolf Gold, meaning that the big wins are more frequent than ever, right now at BitStarz!

The Marketing Manager of BitStarz, Srdjan Kapor commented:

Movement App – Revolutionary Ecosystem that Rewards Users for Physical Activity

From the dawn of man, the physical activity was one of the main means of life. Even though nowadays humanity is able to enjoy a lot of technical progress and automation, exercising has never been as popular as it is right now. Blockchain developers behind Movement App strive to create a beautiful amalgam of engineering thought and exercising for tokenizing physical activity into a worldwide decentralized fitness platform.


Movement App is a decentralized platform based on Ethereum blockchain. It is a unique ecosystem, where everyone would be able to get a reward for beating distance and exercising. Users will get RUN coins for walking, running, jogging outside or using a treadmill. Coins could be spent in the in-app store or exchanged into ERC20 MOVE Tokens. The Pre-ICO project, Movement App, will start selling Tokens on December 15.

The main feature of MOVE Tokens in Movement Economic System is to form an efficiency multiplier and serve as a bonus coefficient applied to the number of RUN coins rewarded by the Movement App API. That is the main investment case for MOVE Tokens. As more users start using the app the demand for MOVE Tokens will grow.

It is the first mobile app of its kind that implements blockchain technology into the development of fitness apps that not only collects the workout data but also rewards users for it.

Large numbers of people around the world are passionate about running, jogging and sports walking or use walking as their main mode of transportation.

There is no service or platform with a real-life economic system, at present time, which offers users the opportunity to earn real-life valuable tokens for their activities. The development of blockchain technology and smart-contracts allows our engineers to implement such functionality into the Movement App.

The Movement App development team is striving to create a unique platform that is designed to motivate people to lead a more active lifestyle, control health conditions and get in shape while getting rewards for exercising.

Movement App will support Smart Watch technology as well as integration with all most popular smart accessories and apps for sports and health & activity tracking such as Fitbit, Google Fit, Apple Watch, Apple Health Kit, etc.

The upcoming Pre-ICO on December 15, 2017, will go on until December 25, 2017, which will be followed by the official ICO campaign set to begin in February 2018 until March 2018. Movement App has set a total cap of 21,172,000 MOVE, of which 3,072 million will be available in pre-sale and 10 million at the time of ICO. During pre-sale, early investors can purchase MOVE tokens with a 100% bonus.

The proceeds from the token offering will be invested in the further development of Movement App as well as a global marketing campaign.

It is important to mention that the Alpha-version of the Movement App is going to be released in March 2018. All the participants of the Pre-ICO phase will be able to participate in the testing process.

Knowledge.io is a New Blockchain Platform for Valuation of Knowledge

Knowledge has always been thought of as something extremely important, especially in the current information age, but it is still a very intangible thing for most people. If we post something knowledgeable and helpful on Quora, Reddit or any other question-centric website, we get a lot of upvotes and likes — but we don’t get money, or anything with real-world, tangible value.

[Note: This is a press release.]


Knowledge.io aims to change that. It is developing a new decentralized platform that aims to reward the knowledge workers with tokens and will undergo an ICO in January 2018.

The new blockchain-based platform aims to form decentralized knowledge sharing networks that enables an increased interaction between knowledge contributors and rewarding participants in different discussions on the basis of the quality of their content. It is the first attempt to truly democratize and monetize the way knowledge is shared and valued.

According to the co-founder of knowledge.io Steven Englander, he and his team envisage a functioning ecosystem and platform where knowledge flows freely between knowledge providers, advertisers, users, and partners, where people learn from the knowledge that is shared and apply it directly in different sectors like education, employment, and commerce.

Knowledge.io is certainly not the first knowledge-sharing platform in the market. There are different models available on the internet right now.

LinkedIn is a somewhat knowledge-platform where knowledge workers can showcase their skills and get connected with recruiters who are in need of such special skills. LinkedIn’s operating income crossed $1 billion in recent year and is expected to increase in the coming years.

Quora, a question thread-based knowledge sharing platform that is very useful for people in the requirement of information and know-how is a very important website and you must consult it for trusted answers. It is worth $1.8 billion right now and is going to start ad campaigns soon enough.

But, the problem with the current platforms is that the knowledge workers and sharers are only appreciated with words, shares, and upvotes. Knowledge.io wants knowledge-based workers to earn money from what it is that they know.

The modern knowledge platforms don’t have much for the knowledge workers. Even decentralized platforms like Steemit that reward users for the usefulness of the content they have shared have seen limited success. It is because the value of knowledge vis-a-vis quality and quantity is something not easily measurable.

Knowledge.io aims to introduce an e-learning platform that is rewards-based and appreciates and celebrates knowledge in its core. Here, users make use of a revolutionary way to validate each other’s knowledge and expertise, while at the same time being connected with advertisers who can pay them with knowledge tokens, Knowledge.io’s native token. These knowledge tokens can also be used to pay for a variety of services on the Knowledge.io platform.

With a base of over 10 million tokens questions across a topic spectrum, Knowledge.io aims to generate a set of virtually endless threads of questions and answers. People with knowledge can now actually earn money in the form of knowledge tokens, even the young school and college kids who know enough about the topic. They can then use these tokens to pay for their tuition and even have pocket money because of their pure capability as a knowledge provider. How cool is that? 

ICO 

Knowledge.io will launch its ICO on January 15th, 2018, offering up to 50,000,000 Knowledge tokens for sale to the general public. The crowdsale seeks to raise the funds needed for the continued development of its knowledge sharing platform, with the majority of proceeds dedicated to company growth.

About Knowledge.io

Knowledge.io has its conceptual origins in the recognition, rewarding and celebration of knowledge. It considers that all knowledge is valuable not only to the individual that possesses it but to the society that benefits from interacting with that knowledge.

Through a platform that integrates educators and employers with advocates and knowledge sharers, all knowledge participants can exchange and value knowledge through voluntary or gamified interaction. Knowledge.io believes that its solution will be the first able measure the value of knowledge, while its model of incentivization will aid the development and propagation of knowledge crucial to the improvement of education, economy, and society.
