How ICOs Will Change In 2018

DIMPAY ICO – Don’t Miss Your Chance to Invest in DIMPAY before the Exchange Listing!

The DIM Ecosystem has expanded further with the launch of DIMPAY, an instant, borderless and decentralized payment system based on NEM blockchain technology. DIMPAY aims to facilitate cashless transactions for consumers and merchants, along with providing a potential financial solution for the 2 billion individuals worldwide without access to bank accounts.

DIMPAY is specifically developed to facilitate the generating of invoices, tracking of inventory, making payments and much more. The use of DIMPAY will eliminate numerous payment errors as the use of NEM blockchain technology makes this platform less expensive and instantaneous, mainly directed at peer-to-peer, business-to-business, consumer-to-business and business-to-consumer transactions.

Consisting of the DEPOTWALLET web-app, the mobile-app, and the DIM Debit Card, this payment platform will allow users to buy, sell, hold and manage cryptocurrencies and cryptonized assets in a secure manner. Additionally, the DIM Debit Card will allow consumers to engage in e-commerce and walk-in purchases within the mercantile sector. All while the consumer is in full control of his finances at all times, trusting that strong fraud protection and illegal activity measures have been implemented accordingly.

DIMPAY further makes use of a QR code, enabling customers to make purchases and merchants to receive payments utilising anonymous accounts. Accounts that can also not be blocked or frozen, as with many other payment systems. Moreover, the DEPOTWALLET Business Account is accessed through scanning the QR code with a mobile device instead of applying the common one-dimensional barcode system.

According to Cisco’s Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update, global mobile traffic acquired a growth of 63% in 2016 reaching heights of 7.2 exabytes (7.2 billion gigabytes) per month. This went up from 4.4 exabytes per month at the end of 2015. Further growth is expected, 49 exabytes by 2021 to be exact, while mobile devices will represent 20% of the total IP traffic with smartphones accounting for over 50% of global devices and networks.

As mobile devices continue to increase in popularity, the adoption of QR codes and mobile payments will increase. DIMPAY is positioning itself to reap the rewards of this anticipated mobile usage boom.

The DIMPAY Foundation is a stand-alone company that is not associated directly with the DIM Foundation. It is the first step towards a decentralized idea of the DIM Ecosystem.

Latest message from Richard Lendrum (Head of Communication) on DIMCOIN being listed on an exchange:

Journeys are a series of steps, and business journeys are no different. A historic step for the DIM Ecosystem is the 18th of December. This is the day we list DIMCOIN and open the process of free market trading of the cryptocurrency.

4 months after the inaugural DIMCOIN ICO – members of the DIM Community will be able to fulfill what was promised – the freedom to buy and sell DIMCOIN on an independent exchange.

Our plan was to have 2 exchanges by end Q4 and while this has not waivered – the second (and third) exchange listing will be announced early next year.

For now – the countdown is on. We welcome you all to the next step of our game-changing Ecosystem as we invite you to trade freely.

ICO Dates: 4 December (00:00 CET) – 18 December (23:59 CET) 2017
Purchase: DIMCOIN
Maximum ICO Target: 1,500 BTC

Bitcoin Cash Will Close Out 2017 With Significant Infrastructure Support

The end of the year is approaching, and the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network and community have continued to see significant growth. From merchant acceptance, cryptocurrency businesses integrating support, and many other additions to the BCH economy, shows that bitcoin cash will have some robust infrastructure for 2018.

Bitcoin Cash Trade Volume Jumps While BCH Price Heads Northbound

Bitcoin Cash Will Close Out 2017 With Significant Infrastructure SupportThis week the price of bitcoin cash has jumped quite a bit after meandering around the $1,300 region just a few weeks ago. Last night the price topped out at $2,000 per BCH, and at the moment the currency is hovering around $1,870 per token. BCH still commands the fourth largest market capitalization this month as the market cap has surpassed $31Bn. Trade volume has been high all week, and today the decentralized currency has traded over $2.4Bn worth of BCH. The top currency traded with BCH is bitcoin core (BTC), followed by the USD. The Korean won only captures 20 percent of the volume by currency, after it dominated BCH markets for quite some time.

Closing Out 2017 With 30,000 Blocks

So far the BCH chain is close to approaching 30,000 blocks mined since the hard fork on August 1, 2017. The bitcoin cash chain is operating at roughly 9 percent of the legacy chain’s difficulty, and it’s 16 percent more profitable to mine legacy bitcoin. Mining profitability has been very consistent since the hard fork last month when bitcoin cash changed the mechanics of its difficulty adjustment algorithm. The mining pools participating in processing BCH network transactions right now include Antpool, BTCC, BTC.com, Bitcoin.com, Viabtc, BTC.top, and roughly four unknown mining organizations.

BCH Infrastructure Growth Continues

Bitcoin cash got a lot of infrastructure support this week from several different facets. For instance, BCH will have two exchanges that will only deal in bitcoin cash pairs from the companies Okex, and Viabtc. BCH got more automated teller support from the ATM manufacturer Lamassu who integrated the codebase into their software. The wallet company ‘Edge‘, formerly known as Airbitz, announced future integration with BCH, and the most downloaded wallet in the globe, Blockchain Wallet, launched full bitcoin cash support on December 14. The CEO and founder of Blockchain Wallet states: 

As the popularity of bitcoin cash has grown, so has the desire from our customers to manage bitcoin cash from within their Blockchain wallets in the same way as bitcoin and ether. We are thrilled to fully support bitcoin cash through our wallet and will continue to find ways to make interacting with digital assets even easier for our users.

The company says the card can be loaded with BCH funds and used to pay for everyday purchases or withdraw cash at ATMs. However, the card is not available in all countries at the moment. Countries not serviced include Eritrea, Libya, South Sudan, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, North Korea, Syria, Cuba, and yes even the United States. There are also discussions revolving around the BCH community concerning other bitcoin cash cards being released in the near future.

A Mixing Platform and Darknet Market Acceptance

So far bitcoin cash supporters seem very pleased with the surrounding infrastructure and the past week’s market performance. In addition to all of these announcements, the BCH community was surprised by a mixer platform that provides stronger privacy for the currency’s transactions. Also, the well-known darknet market, Dream, has returned after a brief hiatus, and announced that bitcoin cash is now accepted for market purchases.

BlockMesh Disrupts the Global Communications Industry – ICO Will Launch 28 February, 2018

The Republic of Mauritius,  December 2, 2017, BlockMesh, a software company based in Mauritius – utilizes the latest innovations in mesh networking technology to create cost-free communication networks and aim to disrupt the global communications industry in 2018.

Mesh technology is a telecommunications system that can work outside of regular cellular tower range due to the peer-to-peer mesh network it enables. By creating a network powered by Bluetooth – or WIFI, if available – the mesh network sidesteps typical cellular and data costs imposed by the incumbents.

BlockMesh is creating a new paradigm for the way we use communications networks, access the Internet access and use our smart devices. The network is based on the Ethereum blockchain which means that it is completely decentralized which puts in in direct conflict with the monopolistic incumbents. The mesh network will not be owned and operated by a few people but instead by everybody that uses it. The decentralized blockchain technology that powers cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin make it possible to undertake such a dramatic shift in Internet access.

Many people do not use all of the Internet Bandwidth they pay for. BlockMesh imagines a world that makes all of this excess bandwidth available to others who would pay for it with a cryptocurrency token. People who’ve joined the BlockMesh network would earn these tokens – Mesh Tokens – for sharing their bandwidth.

Once launched, BlockMesh will also pay its users in cryptocurrency to use the app. So, instead of only paying to use cellular data, its users will also get paid to allow data such as text messages and voice calls to pass through their devices.

Bjorn Guido, Founder of BlockMesh stated that “At BlockMesh we harness the power of the Internet of Things to provide interpersonal communication which isn’t just free to use, but actually rewards users in cryptocurrency to use it. Our network will be made up of the excess bandwidth that exists across the world. This will allow your smart television, your Wi-Fi router, iPad – basically, anything that has internet connectivity – to form part of our global revolution. Instead of your data being an expense it becomes an asset by earning you extra money.”

Having recently announced its integration of the Bancor Protocol™ – the Smart Token™ standard for continuous liquidity which will ensure immediate convertibility following its Token Sale in Q1 2018 – it’s team are confident of further large announcements before its ICO (Initial Coin Offering) in January.

The ICO presents the opportunity to become a part of the BlockMesh company by purchasing a ‘coin’ which represents your stake in the company. Once this investment round is closed, the funds are used to further develop the app and launch the technology.

A new era in mobile communication has arrived, visit the website for more information and read the BlockMesh whitepaper for a detailed understanding of the concept and technology. For complete information about this ICO, please visit: https://blockmesh.io/
