Taylor - Crypto Trading for Everyone

This is a PRESS RELEASE. The views herein are not of cryptofizz.com

TALLINN, ESTONIA – JANUARY 3, 2018 – Taylor is a revolutionary application that tracks market prices, signals potential investments, and executes buy and sell orders for popular cryptocurrencies. Its user-friendly interface and smart features make cryptocurrency investing easier for everyone.

Although trading cryptocurrency bears a resemblance to traditional stock markets, it can be difficult to navigate, creating a barrier to entry for inexperienced investors. The sheer number of currencies and markets can overwhelm even the most knowledgeable investors, forcing them to focus on only a handful of opportunities. Thiago Régis and Fabio Seixas, two experienced developers and crypto traders, have created the Taylor app to address these challenges.

Taylor was originally conceived as a trading signal bot to help Regis reduce the time involved in trading and produce higher returns by identifying and tracking multiple currency pairs at once. After sharing it with fellow traders on his Telegram channel, now with over 1,200 members, Régis identified an opportunity to expand on this idea by creating a platform that could instantly initiate trades based on the signals. Realizing the massive potential of this “smart trading assistant,” he presented the idea to Seixas, and the two set about bringing the Taylor platform to fruition.

Seixas explained, “There are other cryptocurrency signal services in the market, some of them with excellent success rates. However, there is no other solution that incorporates a quality signal service and the ability to trade, all in one app. This is our major advantage.”

Régis’ favored trading strategy is known as scalping. Trades using the scalping strategy last from a second to a few minutes, potentially generating small profits each time, and allowing the user to enter multiple trades throughout the day. Small profits can compound into large gains if a strict exit strategy is used to prevent losses.

People who are interested in using the Taylor app can request an invitation code online (https://smarttaylor.io) for a closed beta that will be released in January 2018. Taylor will also be launching a token sale, also known as an ICO (initial coin offering), on February 1, 2018, and a proprietary utility token will be created (TAY). TAY token holders can use them to pay for the Taylor app service. Once the production version is released, they will receive three months of service for free, get a discount for using the token for payment, and gain access to premium features.

SmartBillions ​​-​​ The ​​First​​ Global​ Fully Decentralized Blockchain​​ Lottery

“The biggest revolution in the world of lotteries” — that’s just how the SmartBillions project (www.smartbillions.com) is being described in social media. It is the first lottery in the world that is fully transparent and immediate, as the results come in every 45 seconds. Moreover the stakes of the game will be the highest in history: the maximum win (jackpot) can reach up to 2.5 billion dollars.

What’s equally important is that we’re not talking about some distant idea that will be implemented in a couple of years. The lottery will be launched in just two weeks. The creators of SmartBillions aim for it to become the world’s most popular lottery.

Many times in history the lottery draw mechanism has proved itself problematic. One of the largest scandal in the lottery world appeared in the United States. The Triple Six Fix in Pennsylvania was about a highest jackpot at that time, 3.5 million dollars. At the base of the swindle lay a very simple trick: the TV show host made all balls heavier except numbers 4 and 6. There was a great probability that the machine would only pick up balls with a four or a six. A couple of days earlier the accomplices of the television host bet on all possible combinations for those numbers. As predicted, during the lottery draw three sixes were picked.

In the digital world of today, we don’t even need to make any balls heavier. Just a couple of weeks ago Eddie Tipton pleaded guilty before the United States Court. For twelve years (2003–2015) he was a programmer and the chief of IT security in The MultiState Lottery Association. Tipton did a very simple thing: he added a special code to the software of a few local lotteries, which enabled him to win the jackpot. And so he did: in twelve years he could have amassed over ten million dollars, but the real figure is still unknown.

Blockchain creates a new level of trust.

SmartBillions turns this pathology prone system upside down. The whole lottery is based on blockchain technology and the cryptocurrency Ethereum (ETH). The Ethereum self-amending smart contract guarantees that all the data, as well as all lottery actions and functions will be made public, totally transparent and unchangeable.

All elements of the SmartBillions lottery are decentralized — there is no company or country behind it. After the lottery’s launch the whole mechanism will take place on the Ethereum network and no one will be able to change it or influence it. All lottery elements and the exact rules of how it works have been defined and described in documents posted on the project’s website (Read the smart contract whitepaper). All the details of the Smart contract are known to the public and supported by experts. Their lottery will have no person as administrator, as even this poses a threat that the system could get manipulated. There will also be no government that would collect its share.

On October 16th the investment mechanism will be activated. The SmartBillions lottery gaming platform will operate with specially designed SMART tokens (called “coins” in the cryptocurrency world), initially priced at 0.001 Ethereum per unit (approx. 30 cents). The maximum of 252 million tokens will be offered to the crowdsale backers.

Coinbase: Buy Bitcoin

The value of the offered Tokens is 200,000 Ethereum, which is around 58 million dollars. The investors will receive 79.37% of all the tokens. The rest will end up in the hands of the international group of developers. Two weeks after the ICO, the developers of Smartbillions will make the SMART tokens exchangeable on well known exchanges, but their price is likely to be many times higher than during the crowdsale that starts on October 16th.

Unprecedented ​​token​​ value ​​guarantee!

Anyone who decides not to use their purchased tokens (after ICO) will be able to “give” them back. They will receive 71.43 percent of their invested money. This is an unprecedented investor protection mechanism, never before seen in any ICO process. The possibility of token redeeming is a form of investor protection in case of unforeseen events. They can withdraw their money at any time.

SMART tokens are also linked to the payments in an unprecedented dividend mechanism. They have been recorded in a smart contract in accordance with the formula in which funds received from players are divided: 94–95 percent gets into the jackpot for wins payouts, whereas 5 percent is paid to token holders as a dividend. An additional 1% goes to affiliates, who will recommend the lottery in their media. The first dividends will be transferred to investors on November 30th and will be paid every month, indefinitely.

SMART tokens will gain value with the development of the project and the dividend will grow at the same pace as the number of new players of the lottery. It is certain that they will be lured by prize money (200 thousand Ethereum), that’s expected to come from investors in October; roughly 58 million dollars. 90 percent of that sum will end up in the jackpot and the rest will be used for marketing.

InsureX Q&A - changing the way you are Insured

 

"Blockchain provides a new way of building Software. - InsureX"

InsureX took the time to answer one of our Whats Fizzing Q&A's. Their team is attempting to innovate how Insurance is bought and sold by utilizing blockchain technology. As we all know, every sector in existence is constantly evolving. The question is, how much is the blockchain speeding up this process and what does the future hold?

If you are a techie like me, seeing the endless possibilities, you cannot help to have that little kid night before christmas feeling. Only in this case, the presents under the tree haven't even been developed, and some, even thought of yet. With all of these possibilities, who can predict the future? Take look at what InsureX had to say.

 

What is InsureX?
InsureX is creating an alternative marketplace for insurance products. Our goal is to transform the way the market trades and manages insurance products. We offer a disruptive environment which will be beneficial to the currently outdated insurance sector. Participants in this marketplace are able to transact business in a highly efficient, secure and consistent manner with easy access to historical data and valuable market insight. The InsureX platform uses blockchain technology to streamline the process between buyers and sellers of insurance products. Not only does it provide a place to find and trade insurance, but a platform to manage the downstream processes related to programs, policies, premiums and claims.

 

What inspired you to create this technology?
Our insurance customers and partners expressed a strong wish to look at alternative approaches both in terms of technology and process.

 

How is your technology different form what is already on the market?
Innovative and fundamental integration with blockchain technology sets us apart from many other insurance solutions available.

 

What's the most important thing your team is working on right now, and how are you making it happen?
Data privacy and blockchain performance are two areas critical to our platform. Extensive research and prototyping are being conducted to make sure we are ready.

 

What characteristics do you look for when choosing your team?
A great sense of engineering principles and understanding the value in having a team supporting you.

 

What is the biggest mistake most blockchain entrepreneurs make?
Making it all about the blockchain rather than the business problem they are trying to solve.

 

What excites you the most about the blockchain?
Blockchain provides a new way of building Software. The most important benefits with the implementation of blockchain technology are: high quality data, disintermediation & trustless exchanges, process integrity, transparency and immutability, lower transaction cost, durability. reliability and longevity. Working around this cutting edge technology gives us a lot of challenges.

 

What is some of the best advice you have received on Investing?
Better to have a small share of something big than having everything of something small.

 

If you were to invest in one cryptocurrency, besides your own, which would it be and why?
Ethereum, it has not reached its peak and I am very bullish on its future.

 

What is your favorite Quote?
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. - Winston Churchill

 

What are you expecting for the future of InsureX?
We plan to add many insurer, reinsurer and brokers to our platform and become a standard for insurance contracts.

Tezos Q&A - How "Michelson" will govern Smart Contracts

 

"It’s the most thrilling sector currently in existence."

On this Whats Fizzing Q&A we contacted Tezos and they were happy to answer a few questions. After learning more about what they are developing and the time and effort it has taken, we are very excited. Smart contracts are the future, and a network that can self govern (eliminating issues), that future is only brighter with Tezos. Check out what they had to say.

What is does Tezos bring to the table?

Tezos is a new decentralized blockchain that governs itself by establishing a true digital commonwealth. It facilitates formal verification, a technique which mathematically proves the correctness of the code governing transactions and boosts the security of the most sensitive or financially weighted smart contracts.

 

What inspired you to create this technology?

We’ve been working on Tezos for three years. Our white paper detailed some of the problems we anticipated with proof of work and the conflict in Bitcoin currently unfolding. We wanted to use on-chain governance, as well as the incentives with proof of stake, to make sure that upgrades did not become virtually impossible.

 

How is your technology different than what is already on the market?

Besides our focus on on-chain governance, building Tezos with OCaml as our protocol language is key. We wanted to use a very reliable and secure language that is not represented in this space but which we love. Tezos introduces a new smart contract language called “Michelson” which facilitates formal verification and can eliminate entire classes of bugs in smart-contracts. Badly written smart contracts can do a lot of damage, and Michelson aims to fix that.

 

What's the most important thing your team is working on right now, and how are you making it happen?

Top priority right now for the foundation is making sure the fundraiser is as efficient and secure as possible. Once that finishes, we’ll be focusing on getting the network active (aiming for about four months), doing our external security audits, and building the community and use cases.

 

What characteristics do you look for when choosing your team?

We want people with passion and big ideas. The blockchain space is a beautiful melding of computer science, game theory, cryptography, economics, and political science. We want people who can utilize all of these in development.

 

What is the biggest mistake most blockchain entrepreneurs make?

Not thinking from first principles. This manifests itself in two opposite ways: not challenging conventional wisdom in the blockchain space, and forgetting tried and true principles of finance, economics and computer science.

 

What excites you the most about the blockchain?

The blockchain allows for amazing possibilities to disintermediate entire industries through decentralization and to connect people globally. It’s the most thrilling sector currently in existence.

DCORP Q&A - with founder Frank Bonnet

 

"We ain’t seen nothing yet… - Frank Bonnet"

DCORP is the next awesome blockchain company on our Whats Fizzing Q&A. They are working hard in the final hours of their ICO and were kind enough to answer a few questions from the Crypto Fizz Team. Check out what that had to say...

 

What is DCORP?

We are a decentralized organization building the world’s first cryptocurrency derivatives exchange on blockchain technology.

 

What inspired you to create this technology?

The desire to reduce volatility in the cryptomarkets over time. As we saw once again this past week, there is a huge need for risk management and technology for hedging strategies.​ I cannot believe someone hadn't come up with this before me. It seems logical to me that the decentralized economy should be able use the same tools that are so common in the traditional economy.

 

How is your technology different than what is already on the market?

The DCORP platform consists of a web-based front end and a smart contract back end. The front end is a modern web interface that can be used by navigating to dcorp.it in Mist or Chrome. ​Users of the platform are not required to log in or supply personal data.

An active connection to the Ethereum network is needed to view statistics, the forum, funds and proposals. An Ether address is required to participate (i.e. write to DCORP’s contract) using the app.​The focus is on user-friendliness so that everybody can participate. The app is as easy to use as Facebook for example.

Another blockchain initiative that funds and launches projects on blockchain is Cofound.it. This is not a truly decentralized organization like DCORP is, however. DCORP has a unique mechanism with tokenholder voting for projects and dividend payout, and is governed by a multi-disciplinary board of directors.

As for the derivatives exchange, obviously these exist in the traditional financial world. However at these exchanges it is not possible to speculate with cryptocurrency. There is no competition for this (yet).

 

What's the most important thing your team is working on right now, and how are you making it happen?

We are currently in the final days of our ICO, raising funds for realization of the first two projects: building the DCORP organization (smart contract, user interface, marketing etc.) and the derivatives exchange. The designs will be finalized and programmed in smart contracts the coming months.

 

What characteristics do you look for when choosing your team?

Experience in multiple disciplines. We have a team consisting of people with experience with investing, programming, marketing, sales, law, start-up and multi-national corporations.

 

What is the biggest mistake most blockchain entrepreneurs make?

I think everybody is entitled to making their own mistakes. This is such a new space that is only logical that people make mistakes. As long as you have a good and grounded team, advisors and involve your community for sanity checks, and don’t get caught up in the craziness of things (e.g. some of the bizarre ICOs we have seen recently), I think mistakes will happen, people learn and improve.

 

What excites you the most about the blockchain?

The enormous potential disruptive impact of decentralization on the world as a whole (for people, business, economy, governments, etc.). We ain’t seen nothing yet…

 

What is some of the best advice you have received on Investing?

“Be Fearful When Others Are Greedy and Greedy When Others Are Fearful” ― Warren Buffett​

Or in other words (can’t remember who said this to me): “It’s only a loss if you sell
now”, in crypto the tag for this is HODL…

 

If you were to invest in one cryptocurrency, besides your own, which would it be and why?

Ether (ETH), because of all the use cases that are currently being built on the Ethereum blockchain, that will bring a huge ‘real world’ value influx in to crypto (i.e. Ether).

 

How big is the market you’re addressing?

The market for ‘Old world’ derivatives is more than 1 quadrillion USD. This is larger than the total of the world’s (underlying) financial assets (about 3x). ​

The current Cryptocurrency world (digital assets) is about 60 billion USD. One can conclude that our market potentially is bigger than 60 bn (current baseline), potentially 3x (180bn) since more and more value will flow in to crypto the coming
years and increase the market cap.

 

What is your favorite Quote?

"The first generation of the digital revolution brought us the Internet of information. The second generation — powered by blockchain technology — is bringing us the Internet of value: a new platform to reshape the world of business and transform the old order of human affairs for the better." ​- Don Tapscott

bitquence

Bitquence Q&A - with founder Shingo Lavine

Bitquence was kind enough to answer some questions for our first ever Whats Fizzing Q&A, we asked Shingo Lavine the founder of Bitquence (Learn More) about their tech, blockchain as a whole, and other insights into the crypto world. The Crypto Fizz team is really excited about what they are developing and the upcoming ICO, we think you will be as well.

 

What is Bitquence?

Bitquence is a people-powered cryptocurrency company making it easy and safe to interact with the new economy. Bitquence features a universal wallet with asset diversification features along with a Proof-of-Stake community consensus mechanism to give valuable insights to newer users. Using the liquidity generated from platform use, Bitquence aims to establish a digital liquidity network allowing value of any form to be quickly and easily transferred anywhere.

 

What inspired you to create this technology?

We believe in the power that cryptocurrencies and blockchain based technologies have to revolutionize computing and want to accelerate the adoption of the technology to improve the economy for everyone.

 

What's the most important thing your team is working on right now, and how are you making it happen?

The team is working on building the universal mobile wallet and making one-click asset diversification a reality. Additionally, we have the Proof-of-Stake community consensus in the works that will allow users to earn rewards for staking tokens on the platform.

 

What characteristics do you look for when choosing your team?

We looked for talented individuals with skills in a variety of areas.
• Link is a skilled front-end engineer
• Pete is a IT, security and data center specialist
• Dennis is an awesome database engineer
• Maurice is an esteemed academic in distributed computing
• And many more...

What is the biggest mistake most blockchain entrepreneurs make?

Many think that everything needs to be decentralized and everything needs to be put on blockchain when it is simply not the case. Blockchain and decentralization are powerful tools that entrepreneurs now have available, but do not need to be applied to every situation. Ripple was initially a centralized system (and still is to an extent), but they are decentralizing more and more as they grow. This is a better strategy then trying to be entirely decentralized from the start.

 

What excites you the most about the blockchain?

It's use as a universal ledger of truth. Using merkle trees you can validate massive amounts of data for integrity. Using smart contracts you can create decentralized applications that run independent of developers. I am very excited about what the future of blockchain holds!

 

What is some of the best advice you have received on Investing?

Get in and diversify. Over the long term, if you diversified properly, it doesn't really matter where you bought in. When Mt. Gox crashed and bitcoin's price fell from it's high of over $1000, many thought the people who bought at the top would never get their money back. Now, many years later, if those same people held onto their assets, they would have doubled their money. Sometimes some exposure is better than no exposure.

 

If you were to invest in one cryptocurrency, besides your own, which would it be and why?

Monero. The open source community around it reminds me much of the early community around the Linux project and it has some of the most solid technical fundamentals I have seen out of many of the projects out there. I believe financial privacy will also become a concern for many people in the coming years.

 

What is your favorite Quote?

“The future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed” - William Gibson, The Economist, 2003
