Interview with Boosteroid CBDO 948

We keep on talking to Boosteroid key team members and today we are glad to welcome CBDO (Chief Business Development Officer) of the project – Murat Aydemir.


Murat Aydemir worked as a CEO for an UAE based family conglomerate in energy, defense, construction and F&B. He is a recruitment, team building and economic management expert. He graduated from  Istanbul Technical University and London Business School. Murat worked for a German energy behemoth E.ON, one of the world’s largest electric utility service providers. He has a long term management experience in energy efficiency and decentralized power generation solutions and renewable energy.

Good morning, Murat! Boosteroid team has changed significantly since the project was launched. You also decided to join the development of this promising cloud platform. Could you please tell us what were you engaged in before you became Boosteroid CBDO?

Murat: Good morning! Before the team offered me to become Boosteroid Chief business development officer, I worked as Group CEO for BJ Group one of the big family conglomerates of UAE in energy, defense, construction and F&B. The group has diverse investments and developed the NIMR vehicle and brought Cipriani to Abu Dhabi.  I was part of several startups as part of multinational companies, in Turkey and Middle East for renewable and decentralised energy. I have a long term experience in international business development in construction and renewable energy projects.

Your focus is about Energy, am I right?

Murat: Yes, that’s right! In a nutshell, the energy sector is changing:  From large power plants to decentralised energy solutions which provide heating, cooling and power at the location needed. This is disrupting the old world and is also a great opportunity for developing markets. It is an important part of our lives. And guess what the cloud market has the highest increase for power and cooling. That made me very curious!

How is your professional background useful for Boosteroid?

Murat:  Well, I am an energy efficiency expert. Servers and data centers do require a lot of power. For instance, all data centers located in the U.S. consume more than 90 billion kilowatt-hour per year. This is 40% more than is necessary for an entire country – the UK. There’s a clearly observable tendency for data center infrastructure to expand. New data centers are being built to meet the market needs. Power consumption is already an issue not only for data center owners but also for the energy industry itself. Boosteroid has to expand the geography of its servers, build data centers and use third party ones all over the world. So, energy efficiency solutions are extremely relevant.

What was so interesting for you about Boosteroid and how can you help the development of the project?

Murat: Today billions of devices experience lack of performance. PCs, tablets, laptops or mobile gadgets cannot solve resource-hungry tasks that we all have to deal with nearly every day, as software and hardware technologies advance. Boosteroid will provide needed computing power to low performance devices. Users will be able to connect their PCs to the cloud and get as much computing power as they want. Everyone has their own story – some play modern high-performance computer games or work with design and planning, while others develop AI, machine learning and Big Data. Boosteroid offers a holistic solution that will help millions of users all around the world join the ongoing digitalization easier and more efficient.

When I heard about Boosteroid concept for the first time, I thought: “Nobody will depend on expensive hardware! Users will have an opportunity to enjoy all those resource-hungry software products and will not be forced to purchase modern devices. Old or low-performance PCs, laptops, tablets or smartphones will still have their right to exist”. I realized, I could help the team advance their energy consuming models and implement innovative solutions in the operation of Boosteroid and partner data centers. Also there are many parallels between Boosteroid to the energy business: How do you utilise your expensive assets at the best ? I believe I can connect both worlds and support our team to be the greenest project in the IT industry.

What innovative solutions are you going to implement to help advance operation of data centers?

Murat: I will use my professional experience to develop energy efficiency solutions. We can use natural gas and renewable energy to provide data centers with needed power and produce the cooling on site as a hybrid solution. This will reduce the power needed for cooling by 70 % !  It will be a revolutionary advantage of Boosteroid, will definitely enhance project`s business model and what is also important, will have a positive ecological and economical effect.

How do you see the future of the Boosteroid project?

Murat: Well, I have no doubts that Boosteroid has even more than just great prospects. It is the next thing which will disrupt the way we use digital devices.  I’m sure, Boosteroid will have an enormous influence on the cloud computing market already by 2020.

It was a pleasure to meet you, Murat, good luck to you and your project!

Murat: Thank you for your kind words! I’m sure we will soon meet again to discuss new  intermediate result in the Boosteroid project implementation.

Monoreto Project Overview or How to Make Money on Your Content? 246

monoreto ico

ICO projects often build their concept on progressive technologies, and among them there are really few who aspire not only to earn themselves, but also help their users to do it.

Why was Monoreto created?

Social networks are used by 2.5 billion human beings every day, they post various content, comment and “like” publications there. Today, this literally has become a way of life.

What are people looking for in social networks? It might be the realization of their creativity, the recognition of the society or the way to obtain additional income.

The main problem of the modern social networks is their “ingratitude” for the efforts of ordinary users when they create their content.

What is Monoreto?

Monoreto is a social network based on blockchain technology, in which any user can receive a reward for his unique content.

How? It’s very simple – each person`s “like” of any photo or video brings at least 5 cents in Monoreto tokens to the author.

Monoreto stimulates to create a high-quality photo and video content, allowing talented users to earn and motivate to generate something new every day. Those users who design high-quality content, but did not previously get any benefit for their work, will now be able to receive a constant monthly income. It is also a profitable platform for professional bloggers who will be able to join the new platform and receive additional revenue.

How it works?

When a user “like” posted content on a social network, he not only rewards and promotes its author, but also popularized his account in the news line. The more likes the user gives, the higher his photos will be displayed in the line, and the bigger profit he can get.

Why you should join Monoreto now?

At the moment, the project team is working on launching the platform and preparing for the ICO. The project’s token is called MNR, it is created according to the ERC-20 standard with limited emission. The distribution of tokens will be conducted with the help of a smart contract. The collected funds will be used to launch the platform and its further development, to finance advertising and marketing, as well as to regulate the operation of the platform.

About ICO Monoreto in figures:

The pre-ICO was held successfully from May 10 to June 10, 2018.

The launch date for the token is scheduled for August 15, 2018 and will last till September 30.

Soft cap of the project: 200,000 USD
Hard cap: 800,000 USD

Distribution of collected funds after Token Sale:

50% – development of the Monoreto platform;
25% – marketing and advertising applications;
15% – further development of the Monoreto platform;
10% – the cost of legal regulation.

To sum up

The new social network Monoreto is quite an attractive platform for managing a personal account. Monoreto opens up unlimited possibilities both for attracting financing, charity, and for becoming famous and earning income on your own content.

The good news is that the project’s token is yet to come, which means that each of us can become a part of unique and profitable platform.

“We are planning to cover all countries of the world”: A Big Interview With the Founder of the Project Joys 825

joys interview

Thanks to the cryptocurrency industry, we learned about many progressive projects that have made our life better. Here comes another promising startup, which is conducting an ICO to realize its idea. We talked with the CEO of Joys – Andrey Mikhailishin – to learn more about the concept of a platform for cryptocurrency payments.

Hello Andrey. Tell us about your product. What makes it stand out from thousands of similar payment services?

Hello! Joys is a payment service for conducting legal transactions in any cryptocurrency when buying goods and services. Joys is a global open source blockchain platform built on a private Ethereum network, which allows you to add almost any cryptocurrency and token as a means of payment.

Many companies solve the problem of cryptocurrency payments with the help of blockchain, covering many areas: from interbank cross-border payments to private p2p transactions: CoinBase, BitPay, Coinify, PundiX, Bitwala, Wirex, Blockchain Merchant, LoyaltyX, LoyalCoin, etc. The biggest problem of almost all projects is the violation of the legislation of most countries in the circulation of cryptocurrencies. The second problem is the restriction of the scope of the existing solutions for retail. The third problem is the need to install new cash register equipment or issue special payment cards.

Joys is integrated into the POS-systems of stores providing regular business logic of sales. Joys applies the loyalty programs, prepaid and gift cards authorized by the laws of mechanics, as well as the technology of handling digital coupons to implement processes where cryptocurrencies are used as payment means. The project achieves legal purity when making payments in cryptocurrency in such a way, allowing to place such purchases in the legal field. It follows from the analysis that the project is unique at the cryptocurrency market, given all of its solutions.

Why did you decide to create such a platform?

We created Joys as a means of bringing together the classical monetary system and the new, blockchain-based one, to make the economy of society more effective. We expand the application scope of any blockchain project’s cryptocurrency in retail stores and service companies, thereby involving classical retail in the blockchain community, contributing to the development of cryptocurrency in general and the currencies of projects that have joined Joys. The Joys platform enables people to pay for real purchases in regular stores with any liquid digital money or tokens.

The infrastructure which is built by the Joys project team has an open API: a bank, payment system or a regulator can not block it. And this infrastructure does not depend on international payment systems, such as VISA, MasterCard, UnionPay or others. We also strive to unite the infrastructures of other projects in the field of blockchain, such as: MPС 123. We open it to other projects – this gives us a competitive advantage!

What other cryptocurrencies besides BTC and ETH can you pay with?

Our payment service currently supports five cryptocurrencies: JOYS, BTC, ETH, BTH, LTC. We are working on adding all new cryptocurrencies. A complete list of planned cryptocurrencies for addition can be found on our website and in our WP.

Please, explain to our readers how the conversion of cryptocurrency into fiat money takes place in user’s bank accounts?

I want to note that users of Joys do not need to open any bank accounts. You need to install the application, undergo the KYC procedure, register a wallet of a desired cryptocurrency and replenish it.

At the time of the purchase, the cryptocurrency chosen by the customer is transferred from his/her wallet to the exchange and converted into fiat money: EUR or USD according to the current exchange rate. Then the transaction is conducted through the banking system to the country where the purchase was made. The resident bank exchanges EUR or USD for the country’s currency and  transfers funds in the national currency to the account of the store. This procedure takes from 1 working day.

What are the dates of your ICO and what stage is it most profitable for an investor to buy tokens at?

We divided the ICO into three stages in accordance with the plans to enter different markets. Sale stages:

Stage I: June 21 – September 04, 2018
Stage II: January 10 – April 10, 2019
Stage III: July 01 – October 10, 2019

In addition, the price varies within phase I, gradually increasing towards the end. Therefore, it’s best to buy tokens as early as possible. In the remaining stages, the placement price will be tied to the current value of the JOYS coin.

Where will Joys work?

In the final stage, we plan to cover all countries of the world. Achieving this goal will take a long time, so we divided the work into three major stages:

Stage I – CIS and Europe.
Stage II – Asia and Africa.
Stage III – America, Australia and Oceania.

What companies are already working with you and who else are you planning to cooperate with?

We have several areas of cooperation.

Financial institutions: International payment system 123, VEB, Alfa Bank, etc.Manufacturers of the cash register software: Scheidt & Bachmann, Micros, Barcode-M, DENSI Cashier, EVOTOR, 1С8, UniPOS, Pro-T-5, Артикс, Regard Software, Service Plus,International organizations: Grand Alliance, Eurasian Economic Cooperation Organization, BRICS Business Council.
Projects: Rate & Goods, ZODIAQ, Smart Valley, etc.

We are currently working with many other companies and are open to possible partnerships.

Will the list of stores and other offline areas working with Joys expand in the future?

This is our main task. We will constantly increase the number of our partners and stores.

Future of the Science – ISH “International Science Hub” on Blockchain 1406

At the dawn of the formation in the 1970s, the Internet was a small network that united several major scientific centers in the US, and later in Europe. This network was created to accelerate the exchange of scientific information and to facilitate access to knowledge.

Later, in the 1990s, with the advent of hundreds, then millions and billions of new computers, the original purpose of the Internet blurred. Knowledge sharing was lost in social networking tapes. Assessment and fair payment of achievements are mired in the wilds of the Internet marketing and all new government regulations.

In 2009, Bitcoin appeared in the world – the first cryptocurrency, which gave a push to popularization and ubiquitous implementation of the technology blockchain. This new invention is already transforming the world of currency and changing the traditional financial system. Without dependencies on government structures, cryptocurrencies can become the payment for our world. What will happen if we take the original goal of creating the Internet and combine it with the capabilities of the blockchain? Our team found the answer to this question by creating the concept of International Science Hub (ISH).

ISH is a decentralized scientific platform that is aimed at increasing the availability, quality, and speed of scientific developments by creating a reliable cross-border bridge between the specialist and the customer. Before the ISH, in the world, there was no platform that could unite scientists, students, and businessmen from different countries into a single place. Now, the problem has been solved!

ISH – a service that will help in a couple of minutes to do something that used months or even years earlier! We comprehensively approach the problem, solving not only technical but also legal tasks in the interaction of scientists, business, and states. We use the blockchain and Science Token (ST) to facilitate the implementation of financial transactions. In addition to the platform, a direct interaction between the specialist and the customers will be available, ISH will become a social network that will be built on the principles of accumulation and augmentation of scientific knowledge and intellectual potential of its participants. Indeed, it is the dissemination of knowledge and the joint work of interested people that will move the science forward!

Who are we? The team of enthusiasts from various industries that are united by a global idea to improve horizontal ties in the scientific community and to give scientists access to equipment and investments, to enable young specialists and students to grow and develop. We have often faced the inherent difficulties of communication in science, and we deeply understood that this is the main obstacle to progress.Like any global project, our project requires investments. That’s why we conduct an ICO. We do not want to just get another token into the market. For us, ICO is a cryptocurrency crowdfunding that is aimed at investing in the future of the whole world.

Factors Influencing the Bitcoin Price 794

bitcoin factors

Bitcoin, apparently, has been the hottest investment offer of all time. Once it could have been bought for a penny, but now the BTC price goes as high as $6,150 (valid for June 23, 2018). Some believe that Bitcoin has already attained its maximum and further investments will be nowhere near profitable. However, a more in-depth study of the issue shows that Bitcoin is only at the outset of its development and may likely gain another momentum as the price fluctuations are typical for the cryptocurrency world.

With governments printing new money out of thin air, thereby causing inflation, the number of Bitcoins that will ever circulate within the market is predefined at 21 million, which makes Bitcoin a deflationary asset.

Let’s look at some of the other key factors that affect the price of the most famous cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin and its inherent volatility

It is common knowledge that Bitcoin is prone to high volatility. For those who do not know what it is, volatility refers to the magnitude of price fluctuations within a specific period of time (short-term or long-term).

According to statistical data, the volatility of gold is 1.2%, the volatility of traditional currencies – 0.5-1%.

In 2014, when the value of Bitcoin reached $1,000, the volatility index for the cryptocurrency went to 10%, now this figure varies within 3.5%. Such high marks suggest that this virtual currency can be used as a tool for speculative earnings. Still, many users rely on Bitcoin as a store of value and make investments in the hope of getting a decent return on initial capital with time. But nonetheless, it should be noted that the Bitcoin value may move downwards just as well, causing substantial financial losses to investors.

Bitcoin and its everyday use

Basically, Bitcoin is used for money transfers and benefits to customers who transfer funds in cryptocurrency as such transactions involve lower fees (than those of cross-border fiat transfers, for instance). Since in many countries the use of cryptocurrencies is not a thing of everyday life, then the addresses are forced to immediately exchange crypto to traditional money or sell Bitcoin on exchanges. As long as Bitcoin is poorly adapted for daily use, people will heavily trade it against fiat money, thus causing its price fluctuations. And no matter how much Bitcoin cost in 2009, at the dawn of its birth, now its market performance is more dynamic.

What do actual figures and stats say? Let’s refer to one of the most popular Bitcoin exchanges within the European market – CEX.IO. In the modern cryptocurrency ecosystem, CEX.IO can be regarded as a medium-sized Bitcoin exchange, having the user base of around 2.5 million. Here, the daily trading volume in Bitcoin amounts to approximately 800BTC, which translates to almost $5 million. Not too bad, is it? And what if we take all cryptocurrency exchanges that trade Bitcoin (around 200 platforms)?

The number of transactions made with Bitcoin is constantly growing. This stands as a key indicator of Bitcoin’s popularity. Following the trading volume stats, you can analyze how the demand for Bitcoin has been swinging from time to time and bring it into direct correlation with the price. For Bitcoin, this dynamics has been positive. On average, the 24-hour trading volume for Bitcoin within all exchanges goes as high as $5 billion and is the largest in the cryptocurrency market. This influences the price of Bitcoin and makes its rate fluctuate.

Bitcoin and the regulatory framework

Different countries show different attitudes to cryptocurrency in general, and Bitcoin in particular. Given the decentralized nature of Bitcoin, it is not easy to tax it or fit it into the uniform regulatory framework. Some nations recognize Bitcoin as an asset or commodity, while others define it as money. There is yet another group of countries that impose an outright ban on Bitcoin, and any crypto activities within their borders are strictly prohibited (e.g. Bolivia, Nepal, Ecuador).

On the one hand, any government recognition can give a positive impetus to the value of the cryptocurrency and push it to wider adoption. On the other hand, there are prerequisites to believe that, as an asset, Bitcoin will be subject to rigid regulation, which might significantly complicate its use in everyday life and thwart its overall progress.

2018 is going to be the year of cryptocurrency regulation, some experts believe. Many governments have already changed their attitude to Bitcoin: from a complete objection to the recognition of Bitcoin and blockchain’s potential. Blockchain is heavily applied in various industry sectors nowadays, and the fact that this is the technology underlying cryptocurrency contributes to Bitcoin’s performance a lot.

Still, whether the 2018 regulations will act as a propeller or a deterrent for Bitcoin’s price remains to be seen.

Bitcoin and the media coverage

Any hype around Bitcoin is a good thing as it turns the heads of the public and thus attracts more investors to cryptocurrency. As of today (June 23), Bitcoin even beats Donald Trump by the number of requests in Google.

The news on the mind-blowing rise in Bitcoin’s value in 2017 (up to $20,000), government statements on the status of cryptocurrency within the country borders, public support or criticism from thought leaders – all these make Bitcoin a hot-button issue that ignites enthusiasm in the global community. Sure thing, negative news retards Bitcoin’s growth and results in the price of Bitcoin plummeting to historic lows. Instead, positive sentiments of the public lead to Bitcoin testing new all-time highs. So, stay tuned to news announcements, tweets from the key crypto experts, and social media updates.

Today, with the increasing interest in blockchain, the attitude of the community to cryptocurrency changes. The acceptance of Bitcoin as a payment method by many well-known companies like Microsoft or Virgin Galactic indicates tolerance and openness to innovation. Therefore, an increase in demand for a new form of electronic cash is inevitable. Bitcoin is still a young currency and as it grows, new solutions and opportunities will be emerging.
