As the storm of cryptocurrency exchange rate fluctuation continues to rage on, the Polybius ICO crowdfunding is going strong with over 17 thousand participants and has passed 2 critical milestones: two weeks out of five and $20 million in fundraising.

With this capital, we can not only get a fully licensed bank in Europe, but also develop the digital passport technology for the people of the world.

The next target is the psychological $25 million milestone. The enthusiasm we got from the ICO participants allows us to enable the “maximum” programme. Once an authorized financial institution, Polybius will aim to become a legal and trusted provider of personal data with focus on governmental acceptance.

By having an all-European single KYC tool to get access and transmit the information between different entities and facilities, the user of Polybius will find itself in a truly digital environment, where any kind of data, be it financial or pharmaceutical records, can be easily reached when required, but kept secure from everyone else. Initially we take Europe on board. Using the latest initiatives inside the European Union, such as the eIDAS initiative, we want to offer a tool which is urgently required to facilitate the development of the Digital Single Market. Reliable, secure and convenient transfer of personal records canenable each person connected to the infrastructure to become fully digital.

At the same time, our Digital Pass will not act as a storage of the information — that would not be safe at all! No one wants their data to be collected in a single place to later be sold on dark market. Digital Pass will be a tool with which the user can authenticate himself and facilitate data remittance, be it credit, medical, insurance, education, legal or financial information. The trust service, Polybius, will make sure that the data is genuine and has not been modified in a devious manner. The all-famous blockchain can be incidentally used to serve as the main accessibility tool, ensuring high level of data protection, immutability and delivery speed.

To join the Polybius ICO crowdfunding we are offering Polybius dividend-tokens called PLBT on our website right now. The tokens are, in fact, the byproduct of a set of Ethereum smart-contracts, which will allow its owners to receive dividends from Polybius. Besides that, after the ICO the tokens will be listed on cryptocurrency exchange markets, becoming tradable.

The next 7 days the Polybius Tokens are sold with a 10% bonus added to every purchase.

Tel Aviv, June 26, 2017 –  New startup bitjob.io is building a marketplace for students on the ethereum blockchain designed to help students connect with SME/SMB who offer small freelance online jobs to help them through school.

bitJob CEO and founder Dror Medalion said:

“Students face two main problems: they are short on cash and they graduate with occupational experience unrelated to their fields. bitJob offers a real solution—an open source, decentralized, and secured marketplace, to enable students to convert their free time into fast and stable incomes, while enriching their portfolios and online résumés.”

bitJob’s new platform is starting with a hybrid phase that gives the option for students and their customers to have transactions with both PayPal and STU tokens, with some incentives for earning a living with cryptocurrencies, having the added benefit of educating students worldwide to better understand the underlying technology.

The bitJob platform will operate via its native STU (Student) tokens, which will be available through an ICO opening September 12, 2017.

“bitJob’s decentralized peer-to-peer (P2P) marketplace will revolutionize the way students make a living and gain occupational experience while still studying, letting students specialize in jobs relevant to their chosen professions and make a decent living throughout their school career,” said Medalion.

The bitJob platform is specifically designed to attract students to the blockchain ecosystem, educating the next generation in decentralization. The marketplace will be a semi-decentralized platform, using both centralized payment methods (fiat money) and decentralized digital cryptocurrencies, as a first step towards mainstreaming blockchain technology.

Blockchain technology has the potential to disrupt and overcome all boundaries, but we all know that can only happen if consumers are educated in using it.

According to the British Times, employers find it difficult to hire quality temporary workers that fit the budget — and much of them fail in recruiting students. bitJob provides a solution for both these needs, bridging the gap between employers and students.

The bitJob marketplace is particularly targeting the segment of students that seek part-time jobs, offering any student with free time an opportunity to earn both experience and money.

“In addition to that, the value employers will get from bitJob is incredible, while students jobs niche today is almost un-addressed by any other marketplace out there. Employers find it quite impossible to locate students which are recommended and holds proper set of skills and reputation,” added Medalion.

Funds raised in the ICO opening September 12 will be used to support marketing, development and the launch of the platform. Presale begins August 2, 2017.

bitJob partners include the Government of the Netherlands, Blockchain Education Network, University of Florida Bitcoin Club, Cyprus International Institute of Management, Blockchain Association of Canada and the Israeli Students Association.

Ethereum-based protocol, KICKICO, launched a whitepaper detailing current issues in ICO fundraising and crowdfunding campaigns and the ways their platform can negate risk of fraud via use of KickCoins and pre-launch checks.

Moscow, RU, June 26, 2017– KICKICO, a protocol built on Ethereum for more transparent ICO and crowdfunding, released a whitepaper that pledges to solve many catastrophic issues within funding campaigns. KICKICO developers are testing the platform, which will launch for the public in September 2017.

The typical notion of crowdfunding – the raising of funds through the power of many – has been around for about ten years as pertains to fiat (government-backed) currency, but Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) are becoming increasingly popular among startups working with blockchain technologies as a way to raise equity in cryptocurrency.  

Despite the recent spike in adaptation, fundraising in cryptocurrencies is still uncharted territory and there are risks associated with little regulation. For example, there is little to protect investors against fraud committed by dishonest founders. Another issue is the fact that information about ICO campaigns is mostly in English, effectively marginalizing the vast majority of tech companies around the globe who are not native English speakers.

KICKICO’s white paper details the company’s efforts to solve issues of campaign fraud for ICOs, crowdfunding, and crowdinvesting as well as break the language barrier by making information more accessible. By building KICKICO on the Ethereum blockchain, the company is able to use smart contracts to add layers of security and automation to campaigns.

Campaign backers will receive KickCoins, KICKICO’s own currency that is tradable on exchanges, which will grow overtime and protect against bad actors. KickCoins are only issued in exchange for Ethereum and other cryptocurrency; this form of backing ensures that the value of KickCoins will not easily depreciate. When KICKICO launches in September, fiat money will be accepted as well.

As more campaigns join the KICKONOMY, the more KickCoins will appreciate in value. The platform is easy to navigate, and campaigns can be localized by authors. KICKICO has compatibility in most common languages, so individuals can back campaigns from all around the world.

KICKICO offers three types of campaigns for pre-ICO/ICO, crowdfunding and crowdinvesting: All-Or-Nothing or Safe. All-Or-Nothing campaigns function similar to Kickstarter, where a target amount of funding is set, and the campaigns will not receive funds if they don’t reach that amount within a given time frame. Safe campaigns will receive their funds even if they have not reached the target amount. In both of these types of campaigns, if the author cancels the campaign before the end date, the backers get refunded.
