The new NFT marketplace NFT STARS has announced the auction of the audio-visual artwork titled “NFT 256 WORLDS“.

At the moment, NFT 256 is one of the largest artist’s unions that creates and sells their projects as one. That gives every NFT released by the collective two perspectives.

The artwork was made in collaboration with the musician and composer Kirill Gorokhov, who goes by the name ‘Unstoppable Music’.

Valuart Launches Auction of NFT Derived From Banksy’s ‘Spike’

[PR – Lugano, Switzerland, 22nd July, 2021]

Valuart, a startup that mints licensed NFTs derived from original artworks, has launched its first drop. The auction for ‘Spike,’ a digital artwork based on the iconic Banksy installation that first surfaced in Palestine, commenced on July 22. 50% of the proceeds raised from the sale will go to charity.

Created by infamous street artist Banksy, ‘Spike’ is now in the possession of Vittorio Grigòlo. The world famous tenor and Valuart co-founder is auctioning a digital interpretation of the Bansky work, reimagined as a CGI artwork. In the NFT version, Spike is seen floating across the universe until it is eventually returned to its rightful place on earth, to emerge as a newly minted non-fungible token.

Vittorio Grigòlo said: “After months of hard work, we can finally share our creation with the world. I’m convinced that Valuart’s model represents the future of how we perceive, admire and give value to art and artists. This first drop is a stepping stone that will pave the way towards a very exciting future for artists and their art, as well as art collectors and art lovers.”

Following the Spike drop, Valuart plans to launch digital originals (1:1 digital clones) of some of the world’s most iconic licensed artworks. This will include ‘Mantum and the Stole’ scheduled for October 22. This unique artwork by Stefano Zanella was first worn on December 24, 1999 by Pope John Paul II to mark the opening of the Holy Door of the Vatican Basilica.

Valuart is intent on digitizing some of the most famous artworks ever created, breathing new life into a classic medium and giving NFT collectors a chance to acquire a piece of creative history. The company has on-boarded leading artists, institutions and celebrities for this purpose.

After certifying the authenticity of a given artwork on the blockchain in collaboration with the owner of the physical asset, Valuart creates a Digital Original (a perfect digital “clone”) and contextualizes it into unique stories through market-leading content creation. In doing so, it aims to foster a new standard for the NFT art market.

“I’m thrilled to participate in this project and use my voice to create a magical atmosphere for the rebirth of this extraordinary piece of art I discovered more than a decade ago,” said Vittorio Grigòlo. “I cannot wait to share this amazing creation with the public.”

50% of the revenues deriving from the auction of the ‘Spike’ NFT drop will be dedicated to supporting those suffering from conflicts throughout the world.

About Valuart

Valuart was founded by crypto enthusiasts Etan Genini, Vittorio Grigòlo, and Michele Fiscalini with the goal of helping artists realize the true value of their work. Valuart connects art collectors with creators, unlocking new opportunities for monetization through the medium of NFTs. By tokenizing classic artworks, Valuart is bringing the art world into the 21st century.

CoinSwap Space Adds Staking Pools With ADA Rewards

[PR – Tallinn, Estonia, 22nd July, 2021]

CoinSwap Space, a decentralized exchange on the Binance Smart Chain, this week announced the option to stake their native CSS token and earn rewards in ADA. This new feature, along with the ability to earn rewards in ETH and LINK, is one of a trio of staking options for CSS that have recently been launched. These new staking offer users rewards in major crypto tokens to allow them to minimise risk through the volatility the market is currently seeing.

CoinSwap was launched this year on April 30th with a comprehensive suite of DeFi options. Since then, the decentralized exchange has attracted new users through its ease of use and its low transaction fees which, at $0.20, are even less than the already very affordable PancakeSwap. Similar to PancakeSwap, CoinSwap utilizes the Automated Market Maker (AMM) model which allows its users to add capital to liquidity pools in return for native CSS tokens.

Since the launch, CoinSwap has seen many new pairs, new features, and new staking options launched on the DEX. The goal of CoinSwap is to supply a myriad of different DeFi features on one easy to use interface and in doing so make DeFi more accessible to the average retail investor.

CoinSwap has several features that users can utilize to make interacting with deFi easier and quicker. For example, CoinSwap offers a mass harvest and mass stake option. These features allow CoinSwap users to instantly harvest all of the returns across all of their liquidity pools and either send them directly to their wallet or compound them by staking them on CoinSwap. As well as being easier and taking just a couple of clicks to do, this is also cheaper as all of the tokens are collected via just one transaction on the BSC.

The recent volatility in the crypto market has been particularly hard on small cap tokens. While the major tokens like Bitcoin and Ethereum are currently a little above 40% of their all time high, some smaller tokens have seen losses of nearly 97%. This is why CoinSwap is offering rewards in LINK, ETH and now ADA. The long term viability of these tokens should protect them from the heaviest losses.

Currently, as crypto might be entering a bear market, a lot of investors are seeking a place to store funds for the long term. Having the option to earn rewards in these tokens makes CoinSwap worthy of consideration for this long term storage. Another point that makes CoinSwap viable in the long-term is that CSS tokens, unlike PancakeSwaps native CAKE tokens, have a hard cap. The hard cap of 19,999,999 together with the fact that the community can decide every step of the way for the CSS to become more of a deflationary, should provide some stability through a bear market.

CoinSwap is also a rare case where as already before launch it got audited by Certik, one of the most trusted security technology companies in the blockchain industry. Certik carried out security audits of CoinSwap’s smart contracts by testing them with an industry-leading Formal Verification Tool. The audit verifies the ability for CoinSwap’s liquidity pools and staking pools to stand up to hacks.

About CoinSwap Space

CoinSwap Space is a suite of DeFi services built on the Binance Smart Chain. It primarily features a decentralized exchange founded on the automated market maker model (AMM) that provides the lowest fees on BSC. CoinSwap users can earn the CSS token by staking and farming capital. Users also benefit from smart routing, guaranteeing maximum yields and the lowest slippage available.

KENZO Token Surpasses 400 Holders

July 22, 2021 – New York, New York


World’s first Shiba meme deflationary token on the upcoming Shiba Kenzo yield farm retains low MCap, showing immense potential.

Shiba Kenzo today announced that its Shiba Kenzo token (KENZO) has surpassed 400 holders. The token is retaining a low MCap, which reveals great potential. KENZO is the only Shiba meme token issued on the Binance Smart Chain platform with an upcoming yield farm. The company’s intent is to give people an opportunity to be a part of the cryptocurrency ecosystem with a meme token cryptocurrency.

Shiba Kenzo, creator of the KENZO token, said,

“We are truly thrilled to be experiencing such strong uptake. The reception of the fair launch validates our strategy.”

Kenzo created the token after gaining more than 10 years of operational and programming experience, which led him to create the world’s first Shiba meme token that offers this distinctive yield farm.

KENZO is a native BEP-20 compliant token, which ensures speedy transactions and security, as well as compatibility with other third-party services. Users of KENZO can earn 5% of each transaction, which will be redistributed to holders and automatically adds 5% to the liquidity pool. While this is standard tokenomics, what makes the Shiba Kenzo (KENZO) token unique is that it is a meme token with an actual use case.

Purchasers will be able to stake their Shiba Kenzo (KENZO) tokens on their own upcoming yield farming site, which means buyers will earn a lot more yield than a regular meme token on the market. The yield farming site is expected to launch in the fourth quarter. Shiba Kenzo allocated 10% of its funds for product development, another 5% for marketing and branding, and 10% for the company team.

The company is creating a series of step-by-step tutorial videos that go into basic concepts of how to buy the Shiba Kenzo (KENZO) token to help buyers deal with the complexity of the crypto space.

Shiba Kenzo complies with all the necessary KYC/AML procedures protecting both its project and its users from fraudulent activities.

Virtue Poker, the world’s first fully licensed blockchain-based peer-to-peer poker platform has partnered with the newly launched Binance NFT marketplace to offer a one-of-kind NFT for Hall of Fame and Virtue Poker Team pro, Phil Ivey.

While the popularity of NFT’s has exploded in 2021 – the industry’s focus has largely been on the rarity of an item and reputation of the artist or company that produced the NFT. With this partnership, Virtue Poker and Binance NFT Marketplace aim to foster another angle to the booming NFT industry: a real-world once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“I’ve been working with the Virtue Poker Team for over 3 years,” says Phil Ivey. “I’m excited to take this next step forward with both them and the Binance NFT Marketplace, and also really curious to meet the future holder of my NFT and get to know them.”

The NFT auction will be hosted on the Binance NFT Marketplace on July 27th 2021 – and is an exciting step forward for Binance as it continues to work to penetrate the fast-growing NFT industry. The event will be hosted on Virtue Poker in August – with the victor winning a seat to the 2021 World Series of Poker Main Event in October in Las Vegas, and being able to choose the charity of their choice to donate $50,000.

Virtue Poker was developed within ConsenSys in 2016 and saw multiple successful rounds of investment that included Pantera Capital, Fenbushi Capital, ConsenSys, and other major backers. Its most recent Private Sale held in April 2021 raised $5 million from backers such as DFG Group, Digital Strategies, Flurry Capital, and JRR.

About Virtue Poker

Virtue Poker is a decentralized poker platform that uses the Ethereum blockchain and peer-to-peer networking to provide an online poker site that’s safe, honest, and fun. It was founded in 2016 within Consensys, the leading full-stack Ethereum software engineering company and incubator founded by Ethereum co-founder Joe Lubin in 2014. Backed by Consensys and stakeholder Phil Ivey, Virtue Poker is on a mission to make blockchain-based betting mainstream.

Spores Network to Kick Off Cardstarter IDO on July 21st

[PRESS RELEASE – HANOI, VIETNAM, July 21, 2021]

Spores Network, a full-stack NFT-DeFi platform, is getting closer to yet another milestone with the launch of its upcoming “initial DEX offering” (IDO) on Cardstarter – the premier launchpad and incubator for projects on Cardano.

Community members and investors now have the chance to secure a spot on the whitelist for the IDO scheduled for Friday, July 21st at 8:00 AM PST/3 PM UTC.

The highly anticipated dex offering marks the latest milestone for Spores Network, which aims to become the first full-stack, blockchain-agnostic DeFi-powered NFT marketplace.

Spores Network has recently completed private funding round, having raised a total of $2.3 million. The private placement was participated by major pre-selected investors such as NGC Capital, and Maven Capital.

Spores Network believes that content is king and expects to launch a venture fund dedicated to NFT + DeFi projects, including blockchain game publishing, as it expands the reach of its ecosystem.

Duc Luu, Chairman at Spores said: “Spores Network is incredibly honored and excited to launch our IDO through Cardstarter. Spores aims to be a cross-chain DeFi-powered NFT marketplace defining decentralized pop culture and we’re pumped to bring that vision to Cardano’s incredible community. Expect us to bring the hottest celebrities, animation/anime, digital fine art, blockchain games, and esports to Cardano’s ecosystem soon”.

First Full-Stack DeFi Platform Built on Cardano

Spores is equipped with features to facilitate and benefit all participants, including artwork and content creators, game developers, entertainment producers, clubs, collectors, celebrities, fans, etc.

Somewhere down the line, Spores envisions a platform that is cross-chain interoperable — allowing users to issue NFTs, auction, exchange the crypto assets and utilize DeFi products without barriers.

In this sense, the project takes the advantages of blockchain technology to authenticate NFTs, track their ownership logs and buy/sell history, as well as decentralize their trading procedures. These operations are perfectly done while complying with intellectual property and copyright licenses to protect the benefits of the ecosystem participants.

Spores Network has opted for an IDO fundraising to allow community members benefit from built-in liquidity pools and immediate trading, as well as save on lower costs for listing. And CardStarter auction platform is, in particular, perfectly positioned as the first project accelerator for projects built on the Cardano network.

An initial dex offering, commonly referred to as an IDO, is a fundraising event that is administered by a decentralized exchange (DEX). In contrast to initial coin offerings (ICOs) where the project team themselves collect the pool monies, an IDO model means that the fundraising will be conducted on an exchange’s launchpad platform.

CardStarter connects early adopters and supporters to projects and has a strong team that has successfully bought several initial dex offerings and proven itself among the Cardano ecosystem’s premier launchpads.

About Spores Network

Spores Network founders believe that crypto will lead to decentralization of ownership and frictionless redistribution of capital. Their mission is to create an NFT ecosystem that is creator-centric, community-driven, frictionless, and borderless. Spores Network chooses to be a cross-chain DeFi-powered NFT marketplace defining decentralized pop culture. Spores co-founders include Duc Luu (Nasdaq IPOed serial entrepreneur ), Eric Hung Nguyen (former senior investment analyst at a top-10-worldwide hedge fund and blockchain angel investor), Paven Do (former blockchain & cryptonomics researcher at HK Applied Science & Tech. Research Institute), and a diverse team of advisors across blockchain and entertainment.

iM Intelligent Mining Raises $2.5M to Launch First Facility in Arkansas

[PRESS RELEASE – Las Vegas, Nevada, 21st July 2021]

iM Intelligent Mining (iM), a provider of environmentally responsible energy solutions for powering cryptocurrency mining operations, has announced the conclusion of a $2.5 million financing round.

iM didn’t name entities involved in the growth funding round, but the list of investors included several prominent individuals and crypto funds.

Looking to seize on the moment, iM revealed plans to launch its first mining facility in Arkansas. The company has already completed its newest prototype for the flagship farm (1MGw).

After years of research and development, iM is uniquely positioned to capitalize on industry tailwinds with its new system, which incorporates autonomous, solar-powered, and decentralized mining rigs. The company has devised a fully renewable ecosystem and reusable infrastructure to enable highly profitable blockchain mining without harming the environment.

With fresh capital in hand, iM is poised for further growth with these funds set to go toward the acquisition of mining rigs and optimization of its renewable energy technology in those warm conditions.

iM’s target audience includes blockchain and tech investors, early adopters, young enthusiasts, and those driven by sustainability, collaboration, corporate social responsibility, and human rights.

Ownership is represented by the iM token, whose holders retain fractional ownership of autonomous mining farms and take 60% of operations’ profit. The utility token also provides staking rewards to holders over time and can be used to stake in exchanges and liquidity pools.

This milestone also hastens the migration of more global mining power to North America. With the Chinese government’s recent crackdown on mining facilities, the landscape appears to be shifting.

IM is feeling good about the future of cryptocurrencies despite the decline in the value over the last three months. The company is confident the door is opening for facilities nationwide to get a bigger piece of the daily pie.

With rising worries over huge electricity usage in blockchain, the mining sector has recently been facing increasing public scrutiny. iM has come up with a graceful solution that completely shifts the blockchain mining model by establishing autonomous, solar-powered rigs built and owned by a decentralized network of iM token holders.

iM Intelligent Mining solves the industry pain points around power consumption, environmental damage, centralized block-mining operations, blockchain network scaling, and high barriers to entry for individuals and developing countries.

iM’s sustainable decentralized solution, the IM Green Protocol, provides an investment structure that begins with solar energy production. It aims to power the blockchain future while protecting the environment and maintaining the economic viability of the industry.

iM’s adoption of green energy will eventually provide the blockchain activity with free electricity and allow all miners/investors to have a hand in energy production.

Crypto-mining activity takes up an enormous amount of energy as permissionless blockchains rely on proof of work to process transactions and ensure network security. Aside from its environmental impact, energy is the main operational cost for miners, and there is fierce competition to come across the cheapest sources of power.
iM’s streamlined operation is built at scale, making its low-cost renewable electricity solution a more attractive option than personalized rigs.

About iM Intelligent Mining

iM Intelligent Mining is a decentralized blockchain mining operation that employs the use of autonomous, solar-powered mining rigs to provide free electricity to the blockchain. iM token holders enjoy the benefits of owning both a solar panel farm and a mining rig without the complications of building it themselves. Advanced cooling technology, bulk purchase of equipment, and streamlined operations maximize profits and provide revenue for maintaining equipment and reinvesting in growth.

Seascape Network & Binance NFT Release Exclusive Zombie Mystery Box NFTs

[PRESS RELEASE – Please Read Disclaimer]

20th July 2021, SINGAPORE – Leading DeFi and NFT gaming platform Seascape Network is working with Binance NFT, enabling the integration of BSC for exclusive NFTs from their upcoming Zombie game series on the brand new Binance NFT Marketplace.

Binance NFT Mystery Boxes

The limited-edition zombie slayer character Wichita will be exclusively available only through Binance NFT patented Mystery Boxes and will be available in 5 qualities. Higher quality NFTs are extremely rare and bring players higher rewards when using them in Seascape’s upcoming 5th game. With a finite number of the rare NFTs minted, serious players are encouraged to try and acquire them via the NFT Mystery Boxes to start staking them for competitive rewards.

Seascape Tops DeFi Games Category

This news comes after a series of high points for the growing gaming network this summer. All of its DeFi games earned top 10 spots in BSC’s DeFi games category, and their original NFTs Scapes were Number 1 on the NFT marketplace Treasureland for almost the entire month of June 2021.

They were listed on the Crypto world’s most highly rated Ethereum-based DEX, SushiSwap and released a fourth NFT-based DeFi game. Binance NFT Mystery Boxes offer a crowning achievement on a stellar month for the growing network.

Seascape Zombie NFTs

Seascape believes that the future of NFTs in games must be about creating value for their owners. So, instead of purchasing an NFT for market price and using it to accomplish non-incentivized in-game tasks (such as leveling up a character), Seascape NFTs spend their entire life cycle offering opportunities to increase earnings for its holder. Right now the Seascape Zombie NFTs are very competitively priced, at under £20 BUSD.

Seascape NFTs have varying dimensions, such as character, quality, and generation, which affect the ways by which the user can employ them toward the pursuit of profit. Wichita NFTs will come in five qualities: Common, Special, Rare, Epic, & Legendary. Players will have the opportunity to stake their Scapes in Seascape’s zombie themed DeFi game in exchange for in-game rewards.

These bat-swinging NFTs will be making their way to Binance NFT Marketplace soon, and will be ready to tell more Tales from the Crypt-o-currency! Those interested can stay up to date through the official Seascape Twitter account

The artwork was purchased on June 27 by an anonymous buyer at the hammer price of 2.8 million BUSD (approx. $2.8 million), and after deducting a 10% transaction fee APENFT eventually received 2.52 million BUSD (approx. $2.52 million). After the event, APENFT tweeted that the proceeds would be used entirely for the repurchase and burning of NFT. APENFT then launched a community vote on its website on July 7, and the proposal was passed on July 10.

$NFT, as the sole token issued by APENFT, is the governance token for the APENFT ecosystem. $NFT holders participate in the governance of APENFT by holding $NFT tokens. On May 20, $NFT was first listed on Huobi Prime for trading, registering a record 120x increase on the same day. After that, $NFT was listed on well-known digital currency trading platforms like Poloniex.

APENFT is backed by the underlying technology of top-tier blockchains Ethereum and TRON with support from the world’s largest distributed storage system BitTorrent to deliver the mission of registering world-class artworks as NFTs on the blockchain. Since its founding, APENFT has entered into partnerships with Christie’s, Sotheby’s, and Nifty Gateway, the world’s largest NFT auction houses, as well as Beeple, the well-known NFT artist. The user base of the two top public chains has laid a solid ground for APENFT to expand its market influence.

The current collection of APENFT includes “Femme nue couchée au collier” by Pablo Picasso, “Three Self-Portraits” by Andy Warhol, “Ocean Front”, and other five pieces featuring “ABUNDANCE” by crypto artist Beeple and a whole NFT Cube set by crypto artist Pak, with a total value of over $30.8 million.

About APENFT

APENFT was born with the mission to register world-class artworks as NFTs on blockchain. We aim to build a bridge between top-notch artists and blockchain, and to support the growth of native crypto NFT artists. Like how blockchain democratizes finance like never before, APENFT, by turning top artists and art pieces into NFTs, not only upgrades the way artworks are hosted but also transforms them from being elite-exclusive items to something that truly belongs to the people and mirrors their aspirations. APENFT is the art for everyone.

Investors include AU21 Capital, GenBlock Capital, Shima Capital, CoinUnited.io, One Block, Soul Capital, and Dutch Crypto Investors. The fresh funds will be used in preparation for its product launch in Q3 2021, as well as its IDO which will take place in the same period.

FLURRY aims to enhance the usability of DeFi products, providing a flexible and user-oriented model to the digital community. As an innovative product that shapes the future of yield farming, FLURRY provides everyone with options to access DeFi opportunities and grow their crypto assets.

“With its founding team of seasoned operators who have extensive experience in this space, FLURRY Finance is pioneering the global trend towards yield aggregation. We are proud to back FLURRY Finance and eager to see the next step in their journey. We look forward to supporting the team in its next phase of development as it continues delivering on growth and innovation,” said a company representative of AU21 Capital.

“We are humbled to work with world-class partners such as AU21 Capital, GenBlock Capital, Shima Capital, and others. What this shows is not only a great commitment to our company but also to the industry. Our focus now is to scale our protocol while continuing to innovate and pioneer in the DeFi space.

About FLURRY

FLURRY is a DeFi protocol offering yield aggregation with rhoToken, which is pegged 1:1 to its underlying stablecoin. It automatically farms for yields without locking up funds or interest earned by diversifying DeFi product risk, resulting in lower gas fees.

We automate the tedious task of locking/unlocking and switching in and out of DeFi products on different chains to generate yield. Current yield aggregators are limited to Ethereum based products or work on a single chain, whereas FLURRY aims to work cross-chain to look for the best yield after cost on different chains.

WiV Signs Agreement with Georgian Government to Develop Georgian Wine’s Global Presence and Quality Assurance

[PRESS RELEASE – London, United Kingdom, 20th July 2021]

WiV Technology, a blockchain-based trading platform for unique assets, has signed an agreement with the Georgian government to move some of the country’s wines and their provenance onto WiV’s blockchain empowered platform. The team at WiV will also be developing a quality assurance standard for the county’s wine to enhance its reputation across the globe.

Under the terms of the agreement, several Georgian wines and their associated non-fungible tokens (NFTs) will be made available to a growing global network of wine producers, collectors and enthusiasts on the WiV platform. This will bring Georgian wine to a far wider audience than it has had in the past.

WiV is also working to enhance the credibility of Georgian wine by developing a quality assurance scheme. This will be based on a panel of experts judging vintages to ensure that wines meet the highest industry standards.
Commenting on the agreement, President of Georgia, Salome Zourabichvili says “Economics is changing.

Physical assets can now be turned into digital representations of physical assets so that they can be traded more quickly and efficiently. This process works exceptionally well for wine because the digital certificates of the wine, also called wine tokens, can confirm the wine’s provenance. We want to be the first wine-producing country that embraces this new approach, bringing Georgian wine to a new standard and new audiences.”

Tommy Nordam Jensen, co-founder of WiV, observes “Wine is in the DNA of the Georgian people, it’s a massive source of pride for the producers and the whole country. This agreement is a superb opportunity for us to help develop their position in the global market. By connecting fine wine with quality assurance and immutable provenance on the blockchain, we will be putting some of Georgia’s exceptional wines in front of wine merchants, collectors and enthusiasts from right across the globe. It will make it simple to trade the wine quickly, simply, and cost-effectively.”

Georgian wine holds a unique position in the history of viticulture, with archaeological discoveries proving it has a wine-producing heritage of more than 8,000 years. Today the country has more than 18,000 wine producers, many using the traditional clay kveris to mature wine, rather than the more common barrel-based approach taken by fine wine producers elsewhere in the world.

About WiV Technology

WiV’s strategy is to make wine DeFi accessible for everyone. WiV.io, its award-winning fintech platform, lets producers and collectors instantly buy, sell and borrow money against their wine, providing rapid access to finance without the usual extensive bureaucratic processes that are rarely designed to take the nuances of the wine industry into account. WiV is in the process of issuing a native currency called $WiVA. This will be the foundation of the WiV ecosystem, a new, inclusive and borderless economy for real world assets in a digital world.

Concordium to Developers: Join Our Revolution

[PRESS RELEASE – Zug, Switzerland, 20th July 2021]

Concordium has today unveiled an ambitious, industry-leading partnership program for global developers as part of its ongoing commitment to build a credible, trusted, and sustainable blockchain industry.

The program offers developers a chance to work alongside some of the most respected names in the blockchain industry and help release the full potential of blockchain and cryptocurrency technology.

Concordium’s platform offers access to a safe, transparent, regulatable, and sustainable blockchain and cryptocurrency, marking the end of an era of anonymity and distrust that has undermined the development of the industry.

The Concordium platform differs from other industry participants by offering previously unseen guarantees of governance and transparency, without compromising privacy.

Users are identifiable and the provenance of every transaction is trackable, creating trust for users and meeting the needs of global regulators. At the same time, identities can be made available, but only if necessary
The Swiss-based company made its Mainnet debut in June, clearing the way for any developer or user to access the Concordium platform and – from today – start receiving financial support to work alongside the company in its mission to revolutionize the industry.

The newly-announced Concordium Free & Open Grants Programme offers developers up to USD20,000 for initial grants and USD75,000 for follow-up grants.

“We are not just a company, we are part of a community,” said Lone Fønss Schrøder, Concordium’s chief executive. “We know we can’t help this industry maximize its potential alone. That’s why we are supporting developers and asking them to join us.”

Developers will be able to work alongside members of Concordium’s Executive and Steering Committee, which includes some of the most respected names in the industry, such as ETH Zurich Prof. Ueli Mahrer and Prof. Hans Gersbach, Dr. Torben Pedersen Concordium’s CTO, and Father of the Pedersen Commitment, and Michael Jackson former Skype COO and Mangrove Capital Partner.

“This is a two way street,” said Torben Pryds Pedersen, Concordium’s CTO. “All good science is collaborative. As an open and decentralized project, Concordium’s vision is grounded in reciprocity and giving back to developers and the science community. First, we created the Concordium Blockchain Research Center in Aarhus, then we announced the DevX Initiative and now, with this grants programme, we will support and strengthen the science and development behind blockchain and technology in general.”

Concordium believes credible participants in the blockchain industry must be responsible for driving change and building trust in the technology.

“The need is urgent,” said Lone Fønss Schrøder. “Failure to act risks delaying the broader adoption of the technology and will prevent businesses and consumers from benefiting from the potential blockchain and cryptocurrency offers.”

Concordium focuses on the requirements of developers and companies, taking into account future regulatory rules and doing so sustainably solves the problems that have so far prevented the widespread use of blockchain technology.

Concordium was founded by a non-profit Swiss foundation and is backed by a select group of respected academics and industry veterans. From its birth in 2018, it has combined the development of its own blockchain and cryptocurrency with a desire to help redefine the values upon which the industry has been associated.

The company’s combination of cutting-edge technology and commitment to a global rules-based system has attracted the interest of investors. Earlier this year, it successfully raised over USD 41m from private and strategic sales, valuing the company at USD4.45bn.

The Concordium Free & Open Grants Programme process is open to any developer or technology project eager to contribute to the Concordium and/or Rustlang ecosystems.

Applicants can find a list of areas in the Concordium Technology Stack that demand particular development here. The application is open to any developer or technology project, if you are interested you can apply here.
Grants are tracked transparently on GitHub and disbursed in Euros, US Dollars, or GTU, Concordium’s cryptocurrency.

About Concordium

Concordium is a Public and Sustainable Proof-of-Stake-blockchain with a unique Identity layer at the protocol level. Concordium differs from other participants by offering previously unseen guarantees of transparency, and regulation without compromising privacy by introducing built-in identity management at the protocol level and zero-knowledge proofs, which are used to replace anonymity with perfect privacy.

IAGON to Conduct Its Anticipated Initial DEX Offering on Tosdis.finance and Occam.fi

[PRESS RELEASE – Oslo, Norway, 20th July 2021]

Iagon, the first decentralized big data platform designed to migrate to the Cardano ecosystem and powered by the IAG token, recently secured 3.4 million USD in its oversubscribed seed and private funding round. Now, it will take its next step by embarking on a multi-platform initial token sale, facilitated by occam.fi and tosdis.finance.

By raising an additional 200k USD, through OccamFi and Tosdis, Iagon aims to secure the last bits of funding in order to further optimize its platform that is based on the model of a Platform-as-a-Service. In short, Iagon’s patented platform utilizes and distributes unused storage and processing power of network participants, at a fraction of the costs, while protecting files with a sophisticated security layer. Furthermore, Iagon’s protocol is able to carry out complex computational tasks and caters to artificial intelligence and machine learning operations in order to transform vast amounts of data and documentary control. By offering these services, the platform aims to obtain a significant market share of the multi-billion-dollar world of cloud computing.

As one of the biggest differentiators from their centralized competitors, Iagon’s decentralized platform seamlessly adheres to all data protection regulations, while still being compatible with existing cloud services, or as stated by Dr. Navjit Dhaliwal, CEO of Iagon, “The momentum in the cloud computing and blockchain market creates an immense number of opportunities in an ever-changing environment. Iagon aims to be the first decentralized cloud computing and storage platform to bridge decentralization with regulation, enabling us to target enterprise clients. In short, we intend to put a product in the market that will push boundaries and will force other businesses to question their current value proposition, especially concerning the use and protection of personal data. Our journey to achieve the highest quality possible was already recognized by our pilot projects (two enterprise projects and one academic project) as well as numerous well-reputed VC firms and Innovation Norway.”

Due to the nature of the project, the highly skilled and expanding team, and the trust of some of the most well-reputed VC firms, a wide variety of angel investors as well as Innovation Norway, the IAG public offering may be one that needs to be closely monitored.

The Initial Multi-Platform Offering

In order to stay through to the decentralized nature of the platform, Iagon will be hosting its initial offering, on July 26th, 2021, on two platforms, which were carefully selected in accordance with the value they can bring to the Iagon ecosystem, which was explained by Dr. Navjit Dhaliwal as follows: “Further strengthening our quest for delivering top-notch quality, we’re glad to join forces with Occam.Fi and Tosdis, which we see as launchpads that are willing to actively support high-quality projects, not only before and during the launch, but also afterwards.

We’re certain that the future looks bright and that these platforms will actively assist us to onboard as many people as possible to join our journey.” Both platforms will use the following specifics concerning the token sale:
Allocation amount – 100k USD (on each platform) or 2.5 million tokens (on each platform).

Price – 0.04 USD per IAG Token

Payment method – ETH

Deadline for application – July 23rd, 2021 (on both platforms)

More information – occam.fi / tosdis.finance (and their corresponding socials)

As previously mentioned, the IAG sale already gained a lot of attention from several communities as well as more mainstream media channels. Such enthusiasm also shows in the engagement of OccamFi through the words of its President Mark Berger, who announced the following: “Having satisfied OccamRazer’s stringent due diligence requirements and requirements to build for the good of the Cardano ecosystem, the Occam Association is delighted to welcome Iagon to our platform. Iagon’s vision for truly decentralized cloud computing infrastructure, and their relentless pursuit of developing real solutions for our interconnected world, is closely aligned with the wider vision and mission of the Cardano ecosystem.”

The same enthusiasm was brought to light by Tosdis, where its CEO, Mamoon Yousaf, said that: “We, as Tosdis Finance, aim to incubate high-quality projects that will bring value to the whole crypto and blockchain scene. We apply a tough, but fair, due diligence mechanism in order to pick these quality projects. Once we encountered Iagon, we immediately felt like this project is here to stay. The solutions it brings and the fact that it already possesses patented technology as well as a highly-skilled team. Furthermore, the fact that Iagon already gained additional support from some of the best investment funds and Innovation Norway, are a game changer, and we’re delighted they picked our platform!”

After taking its last steps before listing the token, and with fresh capital in hand, Iagon is set to become the first blockchain-based storage network based on the Cardano ecosystem, with an Ethereum deployment already implemented. However, it’s still up to Iagon to prove that the use cases are endless and that the future of big data and cloud computing will be facilitated by the decentralized web.

T.K.O Summit 2021: APAC’s First Crypto Outlook Initiated by Tokocrypto


T.K.O Summit 2021 will be held on July 24, 2021 for approximately five full hours by presenting global crypto projects such as Binance, CoinGecko, Kardiachain, KryptoGo, Tomochain and many more.

The multimillion-dollar question now is – what’s next for digital currencies? The answer will be found in Asia. The likely outcome in Asia is that the trend becomes the norm. China is leading the world in central bank digital currency deployment, along with Cambodia, while Singapore has cautiously positioned itself to be a major player using a different approach. In each case, Asian economies are on the cutting-edge of innovation, while avoiding the pitfalls of Bitcoin by ensuring government sovereignty over currency, not having a common currency with other economies and allowing for the supply of their currencies to be adjustable.

Indonesia stands out as it has the largest economy in this region. The importance of financial inclusion for the socio-economic growth of developing countries such as Indonesia can be gleaned from McKinsey Global Institute’s report titled, “Digital Finance For All: Powering Inclusive Growth in Emerging Economies.”

Analysts estimate that improvements to the rates of financial inclusivity could add up to $3.7 trillion from 2016 to 2026 in terms of the gross domestic product (GDP) of developing countries. The role of financial inclusion for developing countries such as Indonesia is especially critical due to the seemingly never-ending economic onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic.

With Indonesia being the world’s largest archipelago, comprising more than 17,000 islands, securing access to financial services for the masses in the country – particularly those living in remote areas is a logistical nightmare due to conventional financial frameworks. Yet at the same time, the nexus between financial inclusion and socio-economic growth is very much an incontrovertible fact.

It was against this contextual backdrop that Tokocrypto, which is the first entity in Indonesia to be registered under the Commodity Futures Trading Regulatory Agency Indonesia (BAPPEBTI), took up the challenge of leveraging cryptocurrency to promote financial inclusion as a remedy for the country’s Covid-19 battered economy.

Hence on April 7, 2021, a crypto star was born as Tokocrypto officially began the trading of its Toko Token (TKO), the world’s first cryptocurrency with a unique hybrid token model that combines the best of centralized finance (CeFi) and decentralized finance (DeFi) to accelerate the promotion of financial inclusion among the Indonesian population.

TKO boost for Indonesia’s financial inclusion challenge

Given the utility of TKO as a financial inclusivity tool, it is of little surprise that there has been a hugely positive market response to the launch of the token on the Binance Launchpad which resulted in a record-breaking 50,000% over subscriptions from 201,406 individuals, with a total of 10,502,201 Binance Coin (BNB) (approximately $4 billion in value based on the price of BNB on April 7, 2021).

The market demand for TKO was so strong that the launching price of $0.10 per token shot up by 3,000% in a mere 30 minutes after its launch. Although TKO has started out as an exchange token, its roadmap envisages that by the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2022, TKO can fulfill its potential as a financial inclusivity tool. By offering an umbrella of CeFi and DeFi products, it can leverage the stability of CeFi and the innovation of DeFi backed by Tokocrypto’s mobile app and ecosystem.

Reaching for the skies with T.K.O Summit 2021

In conjunction with the increasing popularity of cryptocurrencies in Asia, Tokocrypto is aiming to lead crypto initiatives across Asia by bringing together crypto communities and enthusiasts. T.K.O Summit 2021 is set to take the region’s crypto sphere to unprecedented heights.

Tokocrypto is collaborating with partners from multiple countries to advocate a cross-regional educational and industry collaboration. The event comprises a series of panel discussions among leaders of the crypto markets in various Asian countries who will cover various talking points.

The T.K.O Summit 2021 (Total Kripto Overview) will also focus on the introduction of the TKO token utility, Indonesia’s first local token project with CeFi and DeFi utilities – one of which is the non-fungible token (NFT).

T.K.O Summit 2021 will be held on July 24, 2021 for approximately five full hours by presenting global crypto projects such as Binance, CoinGecko, Kardiachain, KryptoGo, Tomochain and many more.

Set for July 24, 2021, the T.K.O Summit 2021 will be the first APAC crypto outlook event and will be organized in the form of a region-wide webinar. It will harness the quadruplicate force of key elements: industry outreach, network connections, constructive engagement and hyper-awareness.

Pang Xue Kai, CEO of Tokocrypto, said,

“The event will involve the participation of leading crypto organizations from across the industry, ranging from crypto exchange and wallet operators, blockchain platform service providers and RegTech advisory consultants. T.K.O Summit is going to be a regular educational initiative by TKO and Tokocrypto to drive blockchain adoption and crypto space for Asia.”

The lineup will be led by Binance’s co-founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao, together with Tokcrypto’s co-founder and CEO Pang Xue Kai, as well as a host of prominent figures from Asia’s crypto sphere including TM Lee, co-founder of CoinGecko, and Mai Fujimoto, co-founder of Miss Bitcoin (Japan), and many more.

Crypto troopers, be sure to mark your calendars for July 24, 2021. We hope you can be part of T.K.O Summit 2021 and may the quadruplicate crypto force be with you.

This event will be streamed live on Tokocrypto’s YouTube channel.

KCC Bridge Goes Live to Enable Token Cross-Chain Swap Between KCC and Ethereum

[PRESS RELEASE – Victoria, Seychelles, 16th July 2021]

A new generation of public chain – KCC officially launched its cross-chain bridge, the KCC Bridge. It provides bridging services to the KCC public chain by allowing native tokens on other chains to interchangeably transact and circulate on KCC. The KCC Bridge will first support stablecoins such as USDT and USDC from Ethereum to KCC. There is no gas fee for users when transmitting assets into KCC, while the gas fee on other chains may still apply.

As the underlying technical infrastructure, the performance of public chains is key to the scalability of the crypto industry. Despite having a sizable ecosystem, mainstream public chains such as Ethereum and Polygon have encountered challenges and choke points in terms of interaction and interoperability with other public chains by being slow and inefficient. Crypto assets created on independent chains cannot access free migration. The silo system built by the pre-bridge world prohibitively affects asset transfer and user experience. Such a lack of interoperability is a big impediment to the further development of the crypto industry.

Connectivity Solution to KCC Public Chain

The launch of the KCC Bridge aims to provide connectivity solutions in technical terms to networks based on different protocols, rules, and governance models by seamlessly moving their data and assets. In other words, cryptocurrencies can freely circulate across their native networks and the KCC blockchain with one click.

The Ethereum-based, high-performing, and decentralized public chain KCC was built by KCS’ and KuCoin’s fan communities. It has been running stably and smoothly for a month since its mainnet launch on June 16, 2021. KCC aims to offer community users a high-speed, convenient, and low-cost blockchain service. According to the on-chain data insights, KCC block height has exceeded 1.2 million, and the number of addresses of currency holders has reached approximately 25,000. The average block time is stable within 3 seconds.

The main focus of the KCC community in the following stage is to enrich the ecosystem further. Meanwhile, KCC public chain Grants was launched on June 18, 2021, to support and encourage global developers to deploy and build various tools and Dapps on top of KCC. KCC is currently recruiting ambassadors of expertise from technical and marketing backgrounds to promote its further growth. The stable running of the KCC Bridge is expected to bring in more diversified mainstream public chains and their native assets to the KCC ecosystem.

About KCC

Built by KCS’ and KuCoin’s fan communities, KCC is a decentralized public chain with high performance. It features high throughput, low latency, low transaction cost, and satisfactory security and stability. In addition, it aims to improve the on-chain processing power and performance with the Proof of Staked Authority (PoSA) consensus mechanism by reducing the block confirmation time to within 3 seconds. It adopts KCS as the on-chain gas fee to reduce the overall transaction costs. By building up a “faster transaction confirmation speed,” “higher transaction performance,” and “lower transaction fees,” KCC aims to provide community users with faster, more convenient, and lower-cost experiences.

Unifi Protocol Creates a Combination of DeFi and Blockchain Staking with Acquisition of Multi-Chain Staking Provider

[PRESS RELEASE – Singapore, Singapore, 15th July 2021]

Unifi Protocol is proud to be the first DeFi platform to create a blended ecosystem of DeFi and blockchain node staking rewards. Exisitng nodes on 6 blockchains will join with Unifi’s existing 7 chain DeFi ecosystem. Blockchain validation is a large industry, and projected to grow substantially larger as Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies adopt Proof of Stake as a security mechanism.

Unifi Protocol acquires the assets of multi-chain staking provider

Unifi has awuired the assets of multi-chain staking provider Sesameseed.  Unifi will gain and operate Sesameseed’s existing blockchain nodes on IoTeX, Icon, Ontology, Harmony, Tron and Waves. These 6 nodes currently have a combined stake of approximately $13.1M staked to them by over 250,000 blockchain addresses.

Sesameseed currently generates about $3000 per day from its nodes, which will now feed directly in the Unifi Protocol ecosystem.  A high percentage of that daily reward will be captured by the Protocol as TVL. Unifi’s blockchain nodes will mint the UP rewards token, unifying the interests of stakers with liquidity providers and projects built on the Protocol.

Unifi will absorb the $8.5 Million marketcap of Sesameseed’s multi-chain SEED token into the Unifi (UNFI) token economy. The combined total of over 275,000 SEED holders on 4 blockchains will also be eligible to claim UNFI tokens, the Global Governance token for the entire multi-chain Unifi Protocol.

Unifi will obtain Sesameseed’s approximately $1 Million SEEDGerminator developer fund. This fund will be used by Unifi to facilitate and accelerate future development on the Unifi Protocol.

Started in 2018, Sesameseed’s community grew to become one of the largest and longest lasting multi-chain cryptocurrency communities with a social media audience of over 16,000 active members.  The majority of Sesameseed team will now join the Unifi team, providing expertise in operating blockchain nodes, managing a multi-chain staking community, smart contract development, blockchain, and social media integration, multi-chain wallet creation, cross-chain token swaps, project acceleration, and grants application and administration.

About Unifi Protocol

Unifi Protocol DAO (UNFI) is a Binance Launchpool Project that currently operates the AMM uTrade on 7 blockchains. uTrade currently operates on Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, IoTeX, Ontology, Harmony, Icon, Tron. Unifi has announced the Protocol will expand to additional blockchains and introduce other DeFi products such as lending and PoS blockchain node staking.  Unifi is expanding its DeFi footprint in the growing Binance Smart Chain DeFi ecosystem, as the $1.18B monthly volume ACryptoS recently added uTrade support to its platform.

Drops Launches on Ethereum Mainnet To Start NFT-Backed Loans


Drops, a project building liquidity and loan infrastructure for NFTs, has officially launched its loans protocol on Ethereum mainnet. The platform is designed to facilitate the first large-scale implementation of trustless loans against NFT-based collateral – a feat which is yet to be achieved in the space.

At launch, Drops loans will begin by supporting borrowing against popular ERC20 tokens. However, the team behind the project plans to integrate loans against actual NFTs by the end of 2021.

About the launch

Drops has launched loan markets for Enjin Coin (ENJ), USD Coin (USDC), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) and Ether (ETH). These tokens will be available for use as collateral, to trustlessly borrow up to 75% LTV. Loans product is the backbone of the platform that will enable permissionless borrowing with NFTs.

By integrating Chainlink’s market-leading decentralized oracle network, Drops ensures that loans are accurately and securely priced against various cryptocurrencies or stablecoins.

To incentivize liquidity, the Drops team has also started a liquidity mining program which will reward liquidity providers in Drops ownership power (DOP), the platform’s native token. Twenty percent of total supply has been allocated over the span of five years.

Additional assets can be added to the platform via a governance process, which involves voting with DOP.

Drops 2021 road map

First of all, it is important to mention that Enjin has become Drops’ strategic partner that will help to bring NFT assets. Drops will support a specialized integration of Enjin’s ERC1155 NFT tokens into the Drops protocol to enable collateralization of game assets. 

Following the launch, the Drops team appears to have plenty of plans in place for the remainder of the year. This includes automated market maker (AMM) markets for borrowing against AMM liquidity tokens, as well as an expansion to Polygon and Binance Smart Chain.

The most major target the project has for 2021, however, is finally facilitating loans against actual NFT assets. The feature will require the integration of permissionless NFT lending pools backed by community members.

About Drops

Drops is a multi-chain liquidity and loans platform for NFTs. It’s adding much-needed utility to idle NFT assets. Users can leverage their NFTs to obtain loans in a permissionless manner, reducing the opportunity cost of holding NFTs long-term.

This Drops infrastructure will become increasingly important as we witness the rise of ‘financial NFTs’ – an expansion of the space beyond digital artwork into more tangible financial instruments.

Nexo Wraps Up Strategic Investment in Yield Inc, Signals Vocal Support for DeFi Ecosystem

[PRESS RELEASE – London, United Kingdom, 12th July 2021]

Nexo, the leading regulated institution for digital assets, has completed a strategic investment in Yield Inc, a company leading efforts to build the Yield Protocol – an Ethereum protocol that enables fixed-rate borrowing and lending by fostering the nascent DeFi bond market – as part of the company’s $10-million Series A funding round. Nexo aims to not only provide necessary funding but also to help Yield’s efforts to build DeFi native versions of traditional finance products.

Nexo’s investment represents another important milestone on its strategic agenda. As the largest, retail-oriented lender in the digital asset space, Nexo pursues optimal operating and investment returns, but of equal importance to the company is the responsibility to invest in young and prospective Blockchain projects in order to help shape the ecosystem of tomorrow and influence the future generation of crypto visionaries.

The raised funding will further bolster Yield’s mission to make fixed-rate borrowing and lending a fundamental building block of decentralized finance. Yield recently began sharing details regarding version 2 of Yield Protocol’s core borrowing and lending platform, slated for release later this year. Nexo’s seasoned team of financial professionals and technology experts will be available to support Yield’s growth and development, and both teams will join efforts to contribute new standards of professionalism and institutionalization to the nascent DeFi industry.

“Nexo and Yield could form the perfect symbiosis in the industry’s efforts to transform digital assets into a new asset class. While Nexo is a dominant factor in the traditional crypto-backed CeFi space, new business niches could be unlocked by Yield’s zero-coupon fixed-income instruments, dynamic interest rate determination across maturities, and innovative risk management” commented Tatiana Metodieva, CFA, Head of Corporate Finance at Nexo, who led the buy-side mandate.

“Nexo brings a unique perspective to Yield’s incredible team of investors and advisors. Nexo understands both traditional crypto-backed CeFi, but also understands what it means to be a DeFi power user. We are thrilled to have their help as we launch version 2 of the Yield Protocol and begin to build a community around fixed-rate, fixed-term borrowing and lending products,” commented Allan Niemerg, CEO of Yield, Inc.

[PRESS RELEASE – Tortola, British Virgin Islands, 9th July 2021]

OpenOcean, a pioneering DeFi & CeFi full aggregator that supports interoperability across multiple networks, is delighted to announce the aggregation of Polygon to expand its trading universe and offer users the best prices with low slippage.

The decision to aggregate Polygon was influenced by the community. When OpenOcean asked its community which network they wanted to see aggregated next, a staggering 48.7% of the 44K+ votes were for Polygon, far more than any other network.

Commenting on Polygon aggregation, OpenOcean co-founder Cindy said: “We have come to learn that our DeFi users and traders have a strong preference for us to aggregate more open and powerful Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks that offer cheaper and faster transactions.”

Polygon is a protocol and a framework that overcomes the inherent issues of Ethereum such as slow speeds and high gas fees without sacrificing security.

OpenOcean’s aggregation protocol sources liquidity and optimizes trades on DeFi and CeFi across major public blockchains such as Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, TRON, Solana, and more.

Following the Polygon aggregation, traders will be able to use OpenOcean’s one-stop trading platform to source liquidity from Polygon exchanges and trade assets at the best prices and low slippage.

OpenOcean plans to organize trade mining to encourage users to transact on Polygon. It will be offering 100,000 of its native OOE tokens for those users who make transactions on Polygon via OpenOcean in the following 2 weeks.

In the coming weeks, OpenOcean will release cross-chain aggregations that enable users to trade and transfer assets across different chains and pairs. The transfer of assets between different public chains is possible through bridges and cross-chain protocols, such as Matic Bridge V2.

About OpenOcean

OpenOcean is the world’s leading full aggregator that serves as a bridge connecting the isolated islands in the currently fragmented DeFi and CeFi markets. It finds the best price, no additional fees, and lowest slippage for traders on aggregated CeFi and DeFi using a deeply optimized intelligent routing algorithm. The platform also provides API and arbitrage tools for users to do arbitrage transactions automatically.

Besides the aggregation of swaps, OpenOcean will continue to aggregate derivative, yield, lending, and insurance products and launch its own combined margin products and intelligent wealth management service.

First Token to Launch From World’s First BaFin-Regulated DeFi Exchange

[PRESS RELEASE – Berlin, Germany, 9th July 2021]

⦁ SMT will power liquidity on Swarm Markets
⦁ Community to set SMT price

Berlin-based Swarm Markets today announces it will launch its first token, SMT, to power liquidity on the world’s first BaFin-regulated DeFi exchange.

The SMT payment token offers rewards to people staking liquidity and 50% discounts on protocol swap fees for those trading on the platform. The more SMT held, the greater the discounts and rewards available. Swarm Markets’ liquidity provider program currently has more than 540 individuals signed up who have pledged over $34 million in assets and have begun onboarding to the platform.

The maximum supply of SMT is 250 million. 50 million tokens with a nominal value of $4.25 million will be made available to the public to buy via a two-phased sale. 50% of tokens are reserved for the rewards pool and there is no team allocation.

Timo Lehes, co-founder of Swarm Markets, said, “Instead of us coming out and telling the market what we think the value of SMT should be, we firmly believe the community behind Swarm Markets should set the token’s price. A batch auction is an innovative use of technology to do this. SMT is unique because holders can instantly benefit from rewards and savings on the Swarm Markets platform when they provide liquidity and trade.”

The first phase will begin with a week-long allocation mining event (AME) on Launchpool, starting July 12, 2021. This will be the lowest price available to the public and purchasers must join the Launchpool platform ahead of the sale.

Swarm Markets will then hold a public batch auction, using Gnosis Auction, on July 21, 2021, lasting 7 days. Batch auctions are becoming an increasingly popular mechanism for Initial DEX Offerings (IDOs) as they provide a safe and efficient method for fair price discovery with an easy-to-use interface.

The controlled release of SMT tokens will ensure that tokens enter circulation in a manner that prioritizes token stability and adequate rewards across the platform’s various stages of growth.

Philipp Pieper, co-founder of Swarm Markets added, “The vesting schedule and distribution model has been designed with fairness as a top priority. Our goal is to release roughly half the maximum supply towards the end of year three. Rewards Pool tokens are released over the course of 100 years at a rate that diminishes each week so people are incentivized to be early adopters of the token.”

The Swarm Markets platform is deemed to have been granted all the necessary authorizations to operate its high-liquidity DeFi protocol by Germany’s Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin). As a German-regulated platform, users must meet eligibility requirements in order to trade on Swarm Markets. This link provides details of all serviced territories.

SMT trading will be available on Swarm Markets directly after the public sales are completed. There are no trading restrictions enforced by Swarm Markets.

About Swarm Markets

Berlin-based Swarm Markets is the world’s first regulated DeFi platform, providing a high liquidity protocol to financial institutions and retail traders. For the first time, traditional assets can be digitized and traded alongside crypto on one unified and regulated platform, bridging the gap between CeFi and DeFi. Its co-founders have been engaged in crypto since 2016 and initiated the non-profit DAO Swarm Network.
