Korean Blockchain Start-up set to lead blockchain mass adoption
Even after months after the blockchain craze, there are a limited number of DApps (Decentralized applications) and mainnets (blockchain platform) that provides an immediate benefit to users. Until users can easily migrate from non-blockchain applications to blockchain-based DApps, blockchain industry will halt in its growth.
NBIT Korea, Co. Ltd. is a blockchain startup based in Seoul that started its ‘Blockchain Renaissance Project’ in 2017. Their goal was to resolve the technical issues that halts the blockchain’s mass adoption. After years of development and research, the team has issued four different patents on blockchain private hosting, blockchain-based secure payment, and IoT security.
Recently, NBIT Korea’s CEO and Founder Sangsoo Lee participated in few conferences in Seoul and Vietnam. He said, “There are a multitude of companies claiming to provide the next generation of BaaS services. We think differently. NBIT Korea will be the forefront leader in this industry. Our BaaS 3.0 service will be scalable, secure, and novel.”
NBIT Korea also had a change in their core team. Their partner company’s CEO, has joined forces with the team. Youngsung Chong, CEO of a global blockchain consulting firm Dream Chain International, joined NBIT Korea as their new COO. Now NBIT Korea’s blockchain project OASCHAIN is to enter its next phase of development.
Youngsung said, “OAS CHAIN’s team has done an amazing job in finding a solution to the current issues that blockchain projects have. My goal with the team is to lead the blockchain’s mass adoption through OAS CHAIN.” Youngsung is in charge of OAS CHAIN’s next phase of development, which include its own launch of a scalable and interoperable mainnet along with all the key features that the team has developed.
OASCHAIN’s native token OAS will be listed on ABCC and Bit-Z cryptocurrency exchange by early December. The development team is keen on launching their services by mid 2020.

Based on the number of unique addresses created daily, which indicates the rate of growth of Ethereum, the network is demonstrating mid-2019 levels. Yet, the price of ETH is down by nearly two-fold since then. In June 2019, the price of Ethereum was hovering at around $300. And at the time, its network growth was ranging from 100,000 to 150,000 unique addresses daily. Fast forward seven months, ETH is at $140 and the network is growing at just over 100,000 addresses per day. Ethereum‘s network growth is on an upward trend. pic.twitter.com/rsjGAA0Ura — Adam Ship (@AdamSophrosyne) January 8, 2020 Ethereum is undervalued based on network growth, but it’s not so simple The Ethereum network is growing, and the number of unique addresses being generated on the blockchain clearly shows it. It is also accurate to say that the Ethereum network is growing at the same pace it did in mid-2019, when the price of ETH was accelerating and about 100 percent higher from now. However, it is difficult to determine that the current downtrend of Ethereum and the cryptocurrency market…Jan 9, 2020
A New York investment firm wants to buy claims from former QuadrigaCX users – provided there’s enough interest from creditors entitled to assets held by the infamous exchange. Argo Partners is opening a dialogue with creditors of QuadrigaCX, which collapsed nearly a year ago following the death of its founder and CEO Gerald Cotten, in hopes of gauging how many individuals will sell stakes in its remaining funds. Creditors who don’t want to wait for court-appointed bankruptcy trustee Ernst & Young (EY) to sort through the claims and liquidate assets can potentially sell their rights and cash out early, Zeeshan Aziz, who co-manages Argo’s trading desk, told CoinDesk. Argo has a team dedicated to buying claims from companies which file for bankruptcy, he said. Aziz noted that Quadriga is still early in its unwinding, and there are a number of challenges that his company will have to sort through. It doesn’t know how many creditors have made claims, how large these claims are or even what the actual return might be. “Typically when Argo is buying claims – as an…Jan 8, 2020
An entire community today is shivering in fear, and across the world hundreds of millions of people are living a few moments of horror. The story too familiar. The blanket wearing running women or men. The most vivid images of terror streamed on twitter to hundreds of million. For a second, the peace has been broken. Images of the hero carrying a knife that ostensibly was taken from the assailant, while throwing away a bag of sorts that some say is a cheeseburger, are now the images for those who on this fine Friday night thought they were to enjoy some fun. The chorus in the media, unquestioning of anything at all, speaks of heros and villains in a tale presumably for the children of the world. That’s British media. As far as Milan and Silicon Valley, family and loved ones are calling those in London. Are you alright?

Bitcoin’s recent price jump after the U.S. killing of a top Iranian general has rekindled a long-running debate among investors: whether it will work as a safe-haven asset like gold in times of heightened geopolitical and economic turmoil. The cryptocurrency changed hands around $7,500 on Monday, up about 10 percent since Iran’s top general, Qassem Soleimani, was killed in a lethal drone strike authorized by U.S. President Donald Trump. U.S. stocks fell on the news as investors worried the conflict between the two nations might escalate into a prolonged and damaging war. For some market analysts and investors, bitcoin’s rally served to underscore the digital asset’s perceived value as a hedge against inflation, historically an economic consequence of major wars. Oil prices jumped in the aftermath of the killing, given Iran’s status as one of the world’s major producers, potentially a harbinger of higher gasoline costs at the pump for U.S. consumers. “Acts of violence and war can create inflation and have demonstrated that in the past,” said Greg Cipolaro, co-founder of Digital Asset Research, which analyzes crypto markets. So…Jan 7, 2020
A millionaire by age 18, early Bitcoin (BTC) investor Erik Finman said the environment around Bitcoin has significantly changed since 2011 — and not for the better. “It just ain’t what it used to be,” Finman told Cointelegraph in a message on Jan. 26, 2020. Recounting the early days, Finman explained: “Bitcoin, when it first came out, was incredible. It wasn’t just cutting edge technology – it was bleeding edge! You just felt the energy in the air. That this was the real deal. Everyone felt united in this cause — this mission. Those were some of the most beautiful moments of my life.” Investing in 2011 Finman made headlines over the past several years for his success as a young Bitcoiner. Finman invested $1,000 into BTC in 2011, turning him into a millionaire by the age of 18 due to Bitcoin’s dramatic price increases, Cointelegraph detailed in June 2017. In late 2018, however, Finman expressed his thoughts on Bitcoin’s eventual demise based on several factors, including community infighting, etc. Changing tides The atmosphere seen in Bitcoin’s early days is…Jan 30, 2020
Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange, revealed on Wednesday that the ninth initial exchange offering on the Binance Launchpad will be TROY TRADE, a global brokerage platform. The upcoming launch was announced by Binance on 25th November, It marks another significant milestone and the apogee of the team’s many accomplishments achieved with the team’s hard work over the past years since the project’s inception. What is TROY TRADE Founded in 2018, Troy Trade is a global brokerage platform that specializes in cryptocurrency and asset management. Instead of opening a new Crypto exchange, Troy Trade just focused on professional traders. It is designed for professional traders and large money managers. Troy Trade was known as the first true crypto prime brokerage in the world.

Why TROY Trade? Furthermore, Troy Trade just completed…Nov 28, 2019

President Donald Trump made an amazing gaffe referring to “409K’s” in a wild stock market tweet Thursday morning. How could this be a typo? The numbers 1 and 9 are on opposite sides of the keyboard. To be fair, the S&P 500 index is up over 70% since 2016. In an absolutely caffeine-fueled ALL CAPS tweet about the “STOCK MARKET” on Thursday morning, Donald Trump asked followers how their 409K’s are doing. Of course, the only problem is the tax-sheltered retirement savings plan Trump was referring to is called a 401(k). Source: Twitter (Since deleted, link is to Trump’s corrected tweet) Trump quickly deleted the 409K tweet and retweeted it with the correct term. If he were a true savage, Trump would have left the tweet up the way it was, warts and all. It could be that number 45 is getting soft on us. Maybe impeachment is getting to him. But the real question this morning is: Did Trump actually think it’s called a 409K? Or at least get retirement accounts mixed up with the famous 409 cleaning formula…Jan 10, 2020
Bitcoin price has been chopping back and forth, up and down, since this past June when its parabolic rally was stopped short of retesting its previous all-time high. While bears have repeatedly failed to push Bitcoin price through critical support, the crypto asset has been clearly locked in a downtrend for the last three months. That downtrend could continue, according to crypto analysts who suggest that important indicators have begun to point downward and are signaling additional downside movement in the coming days. Important Technical Indicators Suggest Bitcoin Price to Continue to Trend Downward Crypto analysts are torn over what type of pattern that Bitcoin price is trading inside, with some believing the price action is playing out inside a descending triangle similar to the pattern played out during the 2018 bear market, while others are saying it’s a symmetrical triangle or bull flag that could break upwards. The one thing they all mostly have in common is the notion that many important indicators have started to turn downward, suggesting that Bitcoin price could continue to drop in the days…Sep 12, 2019
Contrary to popular belief, the concept of a bitcoin faucet still exists. Creating a new spin on this tried and tested business model is not all that easy. Running a bitcoin faucet is anything but straightforward in this industry. A new Take on the Traditional Bitcoin Faucet For many, they either suffer from low payouts or heavily rely on advertising income to make something happen. In the case of Lootbits, the concept has been changed significantly. Rather than utilizing an existing model, it tries to incorporate loot boxes into its bitcoin faucet offering. When users register, they receive free credits. It takes 35 credits to open a loot box that might contain some decent amounts of bitcoin. No one should expect to become rich from this platform by any means. Money to fund the bitcoin faucet has to come from somewhere, after all. It is a bit unclear how this platform makes any money. Since users cannot buy gems to open more boxes through Lootbits, there doesn’t appear to be any revenue stream whatsoever. The platform is still in beta,…Dec 26, 2019
