The people of BitMinutes have a dream of revolutionizing Third-World financial services through the aggressive use of FinTech innovations and the vehicle of a cryptocurrency called BitMinutes. Their stated mission is to improve on the BitCoin idea (hence the tagline “better than BitCoin for billions”) to create a cryptocurrency that ties itself to one of the world’s most widely traded informal currencies: The Prepaid Airtime Minute. The developed world doesn’t pay for phone time by the minute anymore, but the developing world does, and will for some time. The unlimited dataplan is not financially feasible for Mobile operators in those parts of the world. The prepaid minute has become a token of exchange on the same mobile network, trading minutes back and forth to top each other up, pay debts and the like. BitMinutes plans to provide a way to make those minutes tradable between networks and cashable. That could unlock serious economic opportunity, by making financial transactions much less expensive. But they have to build this business up, and have chosen the ICO route to fund their next rollout phase. They will be running the ICO in May.
Also look for news later this month about their pending application for approval from the Financial Monetary Authority in Lichtenstein, to add greater depth to their European operations.
The Pre-ICO, a new tradition in a new industry, is running now, with everyone able to participate, even at a low level of $100, say, by opening an account through www.bitminutes.com and funding it with U.S. dollars, BitCoin or Ether. You can still buy BitMinutes (BMTs) at a discount to the $0.02 ICO price, but the weekly price increases have the discounted price sitting at $0.013 this week, and rising to $0.015 next Monday, April 9. This is a rise of 15.4%. The next Pre-ICO price increase is slated for the following Monday, April 16. That increase is also to be $0.002 to $0.017 per BMT.
Whitepapers and all the other traditional stuff that ventures running ICOs put out are also all available on the bitminutes.com site. The mission is compelling, the price is rising and the discounts are shrinking. Today might be the day to kick the tires on this one.
Genesis Vision launched the alpha version of its GV platform where users are already able to make transactions with crypto and traditional currencies, CFDs, metals and commodities, join the brokers’ community, and choose the role of manager, investor or broker of Genesis Vision system. The required cooperation agreements with brokers are already signed.
Moreover, the Genesis Vision managers will be able to trade using the top-notch trading services provided by a fully licensed and heavily regulated global broker with offices in USA, Europe, Russia, China, Mexico and India – Just2Trade (trademark in Russia – Finam).
The launch of alpha version will enable the GV platform managers start investments thus giving the start for the historic data accumulation. This will form the statistic base necessary for investors to make the investment decision. Besides, the users will learn the profit distribution mechanics, and understand the manager ranking system.
Genesis Vision decided to start out with the platform in a demo mode. Anyone can join the Alpha version and try it without any financial repercussions since all of the funds will be of virtual value. The demo state will go on for as long as it is necessary to carry out all the testing and honing.
Alpha version in demo mode will be available only temporary – until the project team decides to launch the real account mode.The Alpha version release in demo mode is aimed at protecting all the participants from possible errors that may result in funds loss.
Moreover, Genesis Vision will reward best managers and investors at the end of the demo mode.
“We consider it necessary for users to test the platform and understand the way it functions, and only after that they will be able to start trading operations with real funds”, comments Alexey Kutsenko, CBDO of Genesis Vision. “The opportunity to test platform without any risk to lose money is a huge advantage for all the participants. We also consider demo mode to be a helpful tool to discover the possible errors and to correct them before the launch of real version.”

CryptoNationZ will be the world’s first community of like-minded entrepreneurs dedicated to living the Crypto life 24/7. CryptoNationZ and CNZ crypto currency joined together in a package deal where crypto members and real estate buyers both can mutually benefit long term.
The long anticipated CryptoNationZ ICO Pre-Sale was recently announced and sent shockwaves through the global real estate market. This project will set a new paradigm in the way real estate investing is approached. The use of blockchain technology and crypto currency will be integrated into the entire project concept. A fully functional Crypto Mega-Exchange will be onsite and available around the clock. The project’s token, CNZ, will be the currency used for all functions of the project and can be traded on the exchanges for fiat currency at the end of the ICO.
During a recent press conference, a company spokesperson made these comments: ”Building a crypto residency is our first and most important plan in CryptoNationZ. Initially, we will focus our efforts on buying and developing properties. Ultra-luxurious houses with a sense of finality in luxury and opulence. Once the properties are purchased, each unit will be hardwired with internet access, state-of the-art amenities will be installed and safety measures will be implemented ensuring a cutting edge, safe environment. This course of action will be initially pursued as a way to efficiently utilize capital and establish a reputation within the community. Future projects may include custom-built units. The most beautiful attraction will be the all “live crypto exchanges” in separate halls on big screens for our crypto community with five-star facilities.”
He goes on to say: “We can close on a property in as little as seven days after using blockchain technology. The average days on the market for a house listed with an agent is fifty to sixty in our region, in addition to a thirty-day escrow. Our value proposition of an all-cash offer with a fast escrow close is often a good option for the owner/seller who recognizes the benefit of speed to cure their financial situation with using our CNZ crypto coin.”
CryptoNationZ will launch their residential/commercial community at two locations with multiple assignments as per the current market. The first and most important location of the CryptoNationZ premium residential/commercial township will be in Dubai. The CNZ coin will immediately benefit clients and establish the connection between digital currency and the value of real estate assets. CNZ is a very strong property-based token. Dubai is the #1 choice from the outset because the UAE remains the most favored real estate investment destination on the planet.
Mark the calendar. The CryptoNationZ ICO Pre-Sale will begin on April 10, 2018. Early adopters will be able to take advantage of the generous discounts. This ICO represents an excellent opportunity to be part of the next generation of investing in real-estate, primarily targeted at crypto enthusiasts. A detailed discussion about this ICO can be viewed in their Whitepaper here.
