Is Boosteroid a Reasonable Investment?

Today people are getting more and more interested in digital currencies. Literally every day there’s at least one ICO-”newcomer” that tries to attract investments by running its token sale. Although there are a lot of different ICOs, it is not that easy to find a project that worth your time and money. Experienced investors always study all aspects of a particular startup to see its hidden dangers and spot a possible scam. Today we will have a close look at a new startup trying to take on the cloud services market – an ambitious project called Boosteroid.

Roadmap

A good whitepaper is very significant for an ICO project and that is what investors look at first of all. In other words the quality of the document is a crucial aspect that affect the results of the crowdfunding.

Boosteroid has a rather informative whitepaper, where it is possible to find information both about main goals and a technical aspects of the project. A lot of information is provided about project digital currency – BTR token, implementation stages and team members with active Linkedin profiles.

The main idea of the project is actually to make computing power affordable. Our devices often have lack of performance and are not able to face modern challenges of the rapid technological development. Cloud supercomputer can be a perfect solution.

“Thanks to our own unique software architecture and minimal electricity expenses, our users will have an opportunity to use Boosteroid computing power at the lowest pricе”, – this is how Boosteroid founder defines advantages of the project as compared to their competitors.

By the way recently the team has agreed upon locating Boosteroid computing facilities in Georgia. The parties have already reached an agreement that Boosteroid will be connected to the local power grid. The country has low electricity costs and a possibility to develop computing facilities in Georgia is an important step in Boosteroid implementation.

Technical aspects

It is absolutely not enough to know the goals of a project. Investors want to be sure that it will be implemented and how is it going to develop. Boosteroid aims to compete with such market behemoth as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google. However the team first of all thinks about their clients but not rivals.

Boosteroid developers promise users brand new hardware such as NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphic cards; Intel Xeon E5 2680v4 processors; RAM 256Gb. So this will be a rather powerful PC that will allow users to carry out a number of tasks – from creating 3D-graphics to playing high-performance computer games.

Software part of the project will includes an open source platform that provides a number of cloud services such as computing, data storages, databases and much more.

By the way Boosteroid has already announced its demo. It will be possible to test the service in the end of November.

Profit for the investors

This is probably the most important thing as nobody wants to support a project without any return. Here is the profit that Boosteroid guarantees to its investors:

1. Sell BTR tokens

Initial BTR price was only $0,48 during the 1st ICO stage that started on October 23rd. The token will cost up to $2,78 after the 3rd ICO stage. Considering current market tendencies, specialists expect BTR to cost 6$ in mid-2018.

Investors will also be able to trade BTR on the exchange and gain other digital currencies or fiat money.

2. Rent computing power

Investors will be able to rent Boosteroid computing power with BTR tokens at a better price when the service is launched.

“After our service is launched we’ll start purchasing tokens via our exchange service for fiat money paid by users who rent Boosteroid computing power. Considering a large number of users and a limited number of released tokens, BTR exchange rate will increase and investors will get maximum profit”, – says Boosteroid CEO Ivan Shvaichenko.

Conclusion

Sometimes ICO can look like a real casino – you never know whether you hit the jackpot or lose your money. But that does not mean that it is better to stay away from the ICO at all. If you analyse a particular project, think over its advantages and possible risks you can gain profit.

Currently Boosteroid developers are getting ready for the second ICO stage that starts on November 27th and will continue until December 11th, 2017. According to whitepaper, the team wants to sell 300 million BTR and use these investments for scaling their computing facilities.

The next 400 million BTR tokens will be available during the 3rd ICO stage from January 15th to February 15th, 2018.

CryptoMining.Farm Scam: 30 Victims Lost $1.34 Million

Thirty people have filed complaints to Thailand’s Technology Crime Suppression Division stating that they were victims of crypto mining scam, they allegedly lost 42 million baht ($1.34 million). The police thinks that the amount of victims can be bigger.

According to the victims’ words, the leaders of the scam convinced them to invest money into CryptoMining.Farm, a blockchain-mining website. One anonymous victim said to the Bangkok Post that one of the leaders promised investor an impossibly high return – 70% a year.

The victims signed contracts when they entered the website, the documents said that a customer may withdraw money at any time he/she wanted without any additional condition. However, the situation has changed since August. The victim stated that:

“From August the owner began imposing conditions for withdrawing the money. Then at the start of this month, the site announced it would start paying back investors in 84 installments which would take over seven years to complete. The payments were supposed to be made in foreign currencies [which] is not permitted by Thai laws.”

After a preliminary investigation, the police is sure that not 30, but 140 people became victims of the scam. Moreover, it can be related to a big scandal which happened in August 2018, when a popular Thai actor and his siblings stole about 797 million baht ($25.5 million).

According to the Bangkok Post, the company has two official offices in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, which may make the victims think that the company’s operations are legal.

Thailand treats digital money with caution and tries to regulate it. The Thai Ministry of Finance even issued a document last year where all the country’s cryptocurrency activities were regulated, including the taxation of participants of crypto market.

Malaysia Incentivizes Its Palm Oil Industry with Blockchain-Tribeni Das

Malaysia has been using Blockchain Technology in three of the country’s largest industries today, namely Renewable Energy, Palm Oil Industry, and the Islamic Banking Sector.

Palm oil has been in growing demand for over the last decade has driven a lot more attention and new ventures towards the industry. Malaysia currently accounts for 39 % of world palm oil production and 44% of world exports. If taken into account of other oils & fats produced in the country. As palm oil is the key income earner, this industry is set to thrive for the next 100 years.

Production of palm oil has become a popular way to meet global consumption for not only vegetable oils but as an everyday household commodity since the yield per hectare ratio is very high.

Palm oil is the biggest export business of Malaysia, accounting for nearly half, which is 43%, of the country’s agricultural income, according to official figures. Agriculture, just alone, contributes to 8.1% of the country’s GDP.

Hence the government brought out reforms in the structuring of this high revenue earning industry by integrating Blockchain Technology as it will help boost the economic situation of the country and make its functioning more transparent and contribute to environmental sustainability.

The Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology, known as MIGHT, led an initiative to combine Blockchain Technology with the Palm Oil Industry for greater profits as there is a heavy reliance on the agricultural input.

  • This will allow for a more sustainable supply chain network, as sellers and customers are now able to track the source of palm oil and monitor their transactions.
  • Government and legal committees can also use the data to track the sources and modulate the industry for a more sustainable approach.

Recently, a group called SUSTAIN (Sustainability Assurance & Innovation Alliance) created by a number of palm oil industry leaders came up with their own plan.

The goal of this alliance is to establish a Blockchain-based palm oil platform to tackle landscape-level sustainability problems, as well as meeting goals related to NDPE (No Deforestation, No Peat, No Exploitation) which is very environmental.

Blockchain combined with this industry can be helpful in geographically locating the harvested fruit branches and can be utilised as a concrete support system for the same. This would help us get the stored information related to the palm oil workers identities and harvesting phases. This structure could also prove to be revolutionary as it will not only provide government agencies with better information regarding the employment status of the workers but also help policy maker’s gain and access more information about the farming practices. In its entirety, the overall conditions of workers who are working for or connected to this industry will improve.

Palm oil spoilage and wastage is one less known issue that propels up, but with this technology it can now be curbed. The spoilage takes place when it is improperly stored as palm oil has the propensity to react poorly to unsuitable surroundings. When this takes place, the oil is unfit for consumption and even usage as the amount of Free Fatty Acids (FFA) reaches a specific level.

Hence in ways mentioned above, a future-tech advancement like Blockchain is helping regulate an everyday resource like palm oil. Speculation is that in the future Blockchain Technology could be combined with IoT sensors to uncover more potential and revenue methods in this industry. There is so much to explore and the research is still on. World Blockchain Summit taking place in Kuala Lumpur from 27th – 28th of February, this year, aims to connect solution providers dealing with ledger based services to the local marketplace, in order to help Malaysia develop an implementation roadmap to utilise Blockchain as a solution to the aforementioned problems!

Glimpse into the Future at Hong Kong Blockchain Week

The first thing to know about blockchain technology is that there is a lot to know.

There is, of course, Bitcoin, which has always been seen as Batman to blockchain’s Robin, or vice-versa. But since those early days when Bitcoin and blockchain were seemingly joined at the hip, the nascent technology has begun to outgrow its exclusivity with cryptocurrencies: From global payments to insurance to the travel industry to the real estate business and beyond, the possibilities for blockchain’s utilization in the near future seem limitless.

There is also, of course, blockchain’s strides in banking: HSBC announced earlier this year that it has now settled more than three million forex transactions and made more than 150,000 payments worth $250 billion using blockchain technology. Specifically, the bank is using a distributed ledger technology called HSBC FX Everywhere, noting in a press release that it “has been used for the past year to orchestrate payments across HSBC’s internal balance sheets, creating significant efficiencies and opportunities.”

However, since any attempt at innovation often gets met with equal parts excitement and skepticism, it’s not surprising that some doubts have been raised about the progress blockchain has made thus far – or the lack thereof, as it were.

And while the economist Nouriel Roubini – who, granted, is nicknamed “Dr. Doom” – is already talking about blockchain’s “broken promises,” it doesn’t seem as though most people are as quick to dismiss the technology’s potential. Instead, there appears to be an air of cautious optimism, with people excited by its potential, but still waiting for its potential to be realized in more real-world applications.

A survey conducted by consulting firm Deloitte of over 1,000 executives across the globe found that although 74 of respondents said their companies see a “compelling business case” for using blockchain technology, only 34 percent said their company has initiated deployment of blockchain in some capacity. And while “a significant percentage of early adopters in the business community (59 percent) believe in blockchain’s potential to disrupt and revolutionize their industries, and the overall economy,” the reality is “there are very few active use cases they can currently employ to advance their beliefs.”

And yet, 78 percent of the executives surveyed by Deloitte “believe they stand to lose competitive advantage if they do not eventually implement blockchain.”

So, we return to our original premise: There is indeed a lot to know about blockchain. But knowledge is power, of course, and whether you’re an early adopter of blockchain technology or a neophyte trying to catch up, Hong Kong Blockchain Week, presented by NexChange on March 4-8, is the largest blockchain event in Hong Kong and the perfect opportunity to hear  about the real-world applications of blockchain, discuss the opportunities it presents for innovation in your industry, learn about possible regulatory developments and connect with other people in the fledgling space.

Among the topics that will be covered during the week include:

  • Government and Blockchain in which we focus on use cases
  • Financial Services and Blockchain in which we look at how big banks and insurance companies are using the technology
  • Big Corporate and Blockchain in which we explore how it’s being used by Fortune 500 and other companies
  • Technological Advancement and Blockchain in which we geek out about how to solve blockchain’s challenges
  • Governance and Blockchain in which we talk about creating governance structures that deliver on the democratization promised by blockchain

Hong Kong Blockchain Week will feature some of the best and brightest minds in blockchain, finance and innovation. Our panel of experts will talk about both the progress that’s been made so far, as well as the challenges the industry faces as it moves this new technology forward.

Our featured speakers will include Bart Chilton, former Commissioner of the U.S. Commodities Futures and Trade Commission; Sinhae Lee, partner at Global Blockchain Innovative Capital (GBIC); Tony Tong, Co-Chairman of the Hong Kong Blockchain Association; Clara Chiu, Head of Fintech Unit & Director of Licensing at the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC); Franklyn Richards, Founding Director at the Litecoin Foundation and COO of Zulu Republic; Charles d’ Haussey, Head of Fintech at InvestHK; Charles Mok, member of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong; Sally Evers, official member of the Forbes Technology Council; Brittany Kaiser, Co-Founder of the Digital Asset Trade Association (DATA) and Cambridge Analytica whistleblower; and Juwan Lee, Chairman and CEO of the NexChange Group and CEO of Arrakis Ventures.

There is a lot of ground to cover when it comes to better understanding the opportunities and challenges with blockchain; luckily, we’ll have a week to take a deep dive into the technology. To register for Hong Kong Blockchain Week and to stay updates on the full lineup of featured speakers, just go HERE. We hope to see you there.
