Foreground Announces Plans to Build a Decentralized Advertising and Affiliate Marketing Solution

Bitcoin Press Release: Technology startup, Foreground, announced its plans to build a decentralized affiliate marketing and advertising solution today.

Foreground promises to simplify advertising and affiliate marketing by connecting advertisers and publishers on both the traditional internet and the rapidly growing decentralized web (Web 3.0) to an open and honest network. The network will allow advertisers and publishers to build reputations based on a verifiable, immutable ledger of payments and conversions.

“We see an opportunity to connect advertisers and publishers without the middle man,” says Rick Feiner, Founder and CEO of Foreground. “The blockchain provides a 100% accurate history of payments. We’re using that data to build a verifiable reputation for each and every advertiser and publisher that joins the Foreground network.”

Foreground enters the market at a time when the tech community is starting to realize the disintermediating effect that blockchain technology will have on digital marketing. Up to 40% of ad budgetary allocation tends to go to large networks and service providers. By leveraging technology, automation and transparency to reduce cost, Foreground is set to disrupt the industry by making it simpler, more transparent and efficient.

“The exploding ecosystem of decentralized apps is going to need a monetization solution,” continues Feiner. “The ICO market alone is $3 Billion and growing, but doesn’t yet have access to even the most basic affiliate tools. Foreground is the only solution that makes advertisements and affiliate marketing work seamlessly on the blockchain, allowing us to serve one of the fastest growing markets in the tech space.”

Foreground is building a decentralized app that includes a full suite of tools to empower advertisers and publishers, including tools for reporting, conversion attribution, and payment. The product is being built by accomplished developers and is backed by the Blockchain Incubation division of Productive Edge, a world class digital transformation consultancy based in Chicago.

Blockchain Startup VIVA Officially Launches the VIVAconomy, Announce Crowdsale

Bitcoin Press Release: New cryptocurrency startup, VIVA has officially announced its blockchain-based digital currency economy — VIVAconomy accompanied by VIVA Crown ICO.

May 8, 2017, Cheyenne, USA – Blockchain startup VIVA, has announced the launch of its digital currency economy and ICO crowdsale. The platform is built around the digital currency VIVA COIN with a primary focus on stability achieved by its three-tiered framework. The platform will be running the ICO/crowdsale of its VIVA Crown digital assets over a period of three weeks. In the duration, the platform will make 6500 elite VIVA Crowns available to investors. Holders of this unique VIVA Crown will receive a license to operate a VIVA Mint generating VIVA Coins and contribute in making key decisions in the VIVAconomy for the whole community’s benefit.

VIVA’s Blockchain platform’s three-tiered, economically stabilized digital currency framework incorporates innovative technologies that not only eliminate the extreme volatility that plagues other digital currencies but also has the potential to provide long-term stable recurring income for all participants.

Unlike other cryptocurrency projects, owning VIVA Crowns confers significant powers to the holders within VIVAconomy, including a license to operate a VIVA Mint. Every quarter each Crown Holder is assigned a “Treasury Right”, enabling them to mint an agreed upon quantity of VIVA Coins.

The rights conferred by owning a VIVA Crown can also be sold to a mint based on the wishes of the holder. In addition, the platform also sets aside a portion of VIVA Coins generated by transactions within the VIVAconomy for worthy causes. These Award Rights are also decided by the VIVA Crown Holders.

Each VIVA Crown Holder is also entitled to one vote regardless of the number of Crowns they may possess. These votes are invoked while making important decisions that influence the VIVAconomy. Thus, ensuring that every Crown token holder has an equal influence on the platform’s progress.

Dawn Parker-Waites, CEO of VIVA explains the VIVAconomy by saying,

“The VIVAconomy harnesses the cumulative power of all the transactions that occur in the system and reinvests them in the long-term future of everyone involved. Instead of inflating corporate balance sheets, we aim to provide financial stability for individual human beings. Thanks to our cutting-edge technology, there’s no longer a need to pay financiers for keeping track of transactions that can easily be handled on the blockchain at a fraction of the cost.”

In the VIVAconomy, a VIVA Crown is a software license that allows the Crown holder to participate in the economy’s decision-making process. From a business perspective, owning a VIVA Crown allows an individual to offset infrastructure costs by leveraging the economic energy that would otherwise feed banks and government. Similarly, from a legal standpoint, VIVA Crowns are in fact a software license required to run a mint in the VIVAconomy, making it an indispensable asset whose value is bound to appreciate with time.

When asked about the ICO, Parker-Waites added,

“It is, however important for people to understand that the project is just getting off the ground. The ICO is predominantly to raise funds so we can hire more developers. At the moment, the best way into or out of the VIVAconomy is through TradeQwik.com, or via bitShares since we have an asset and gateway there now as well. People can also use the two VIVA ATMs that have been operating in Mexico for over a year. We’re in this for the long haul, but there is still lots of work to be done. This opportunity is for people interested in getting in on the ground floor.”

Unlike the commonly used Proof of Work (PoW) or Proof of Stake (PoS), VIVA makes use of a concept called Proof of Authority (PoA). The Proof of Authority system supports instant transactions and seamless consensus. Proof of Authority disposes of certain egalitarian notions involved in weaker consensus models and replaces them with cryptographic signature proofs and business contracts enforced and backed by the network.

The VIVA Coin team’s decision to move away from widely used Proof of Stake to Proof of Authority consensus is influenced by its intention to overcome certain disadvantages of the former algorithm.

“While Proof of Stake might have certain advantages, it is not a panacea. The problem is that there is no guarantee that the validator with the highest collateral deposited for a block is going to operate the network in its best interests. In fact, Proof of Stake coins are plagued with issues because rational people tend to act in their own self-interest. PoS works only because the best interests of the largest stakeholders usually do align with those of the network. In the case of a disagreement, however, the largest stakeholder might assume the role of the supreme commander.”

The total number of VIVA Crowns are capped at 42,000, mined at the rate of one Crown per week following the conclusion of the ICO. Through the crowdsale, VIVA is in the process of raising funds required to expand its team of developers to ensure rapid development of the entire VIVA ecosystem. VIVA has lined up a series of enterprise-class business applications built on its technology which will be released soon.

By bringing more and more real world solutions into the ecosystem, the company will continue to improve the financial future of all participants. The beauty of VIVAconomy is that every VIVA plays a role in the economic growth of the community.

VIVA Coin ICO

To get started in the VIVAconomy, participants can go to the platform’s ICO page and follow the simple instructions. Supported currencies include Bitcoin (BTC), LiteCoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Steem Backed Dollars (SBD), STEEM (STEEM), USD, GOLOS (GOLOS), Mexican Pesos (MXN) and WANGCHANGE (XWANG). VIVA intends to extend support to other currencies and will update the page as and when they are added.

For detailed information on how the VIVAconomy works, readers should visit www.vivaco.in and download the project’s whitepaper.

Waves Platform and Higher School of Economics Partner for Pro FinTech Startup Program

December 28, 2016, Moscow, Russia – Business Incubator of Higher School of Economics in Moscow has announced the second year of fintech startup program HSE{Pro}Fintech. Official partners of the fintech section are Waves, the decentralized platform for crowdfunding and community management and National Settlement Depository.

FinTech applications

The Incubator recently launched the second round of its {pro} fintech programme. The program aims to develop projects in the field of financial and blockchain technologies, in particular services for banks and their customers, personal finance management systems, peer-to-peer services, investment systems, payments, transfers and other fintech products.

Whilst Bitcoin has pioneered peer-to-peer online money transfer for almost 8 years now, Blockchain 2.0 technology is still in its relative infancy. A number of decentralised asset exchanges have already been created, including on the Nxt, BitShares, and Counterparty platforms. However, none of these have achieved significant traction, for a number of reasons. Firstly, they were small ecosystems. The assets traded generally had low liquidity and high spreads, and being decentralised platforms there was little accountability and a large proportion of low-quality and fraudulent assets. Regulations were practically non-existent. Additionally, trading was slow due to inherent block-time limitations of the blockchain. This made it almost impossible to attract legitimate new businesses and for these early decentralised exchanges to achieve critical mass.

New solutions

Waves platform is aiming to bring solutions to all of these problems with its Waves’ DEX (decentralised exchange), which has just been released on testnet. It allows any token to be traded directly against any other token – rather than trading two tokens separately against a reference currency, as most other platforms require. Moreover, it features an innovative new system that enables trades to be executed in near real-time via a “Matcher”, enabling high-frequency trading but still be settled on the blockchain for security.

Additionally, fiat gateways are in the process of being created to allow the use of blockchain-based EUR, USD, CNY and other major currency tokens. Gateways, which act as on- and off-ramps between the traditional financial sector and the blockchain, are responsible for remaining compliant in their regulatory jurisdictions. Thus, the Waves DEX allows for speed, security, and compliance.
