Guarda, the team of blockchain professionals, recently introduced their new wallet to the market. The wallet is known for its hyper-security of the private key which is not transferred from the application in any way and is safely stored inside the Android key storage.
Guarda added a new feature in their mobile application — the possibility to buy and store ethereum-based tokens. Within the wallet, it is easy to buy, transfer and see the owned tokens without app-hopping.
The tokens can be bought with any cryptocurrency and can be accessed within the app simultaneously.
The developers of Guarda got concerned with the convenience and simpleness of the user experience and decided to embed the processes of buying and storing the tokens in the wallet as well as sending them to a different wallet address. This way, the user will see all the tokens they own inside the Guarda wallet and will have the option to buy any new ones without leaving the app. Guarda seems to have genuinely brought the crypto-trade to the next level.
Whereas previously users had to take effort to find a trusted exchange, Guarda has a completely different approach. The team came to the point of development to make it simple for the user to buy and store the tokens for ETH and ETC in the wallet. All the tokens bought with the user’s wallet address will appear in the app consistently, so the customers can control their funds effectively. This quick and easy feature will save not only the customer’s time, but also the money.
“Tokens are an important part of the Ethereum blockchain infrastructure. For this reason, we have implemented a complete set of in-app tools for token operations.”, — Ondrej Horaček, Product Manager at Guarda.
London, UK: On 7th of November David Agar, the CEO of Bank4YOU Group is going to present the demo version of the Bank4YOU e-wallet app with MMRS system to a vast community of fintech innovators at the one of the most influential conferences in the world – FinovateAsia. Each user of Bank4You’s mobile wallet will soon have an account where tokens can be stored in different local currencies as well as in the ICO BFY token. Users can use available tokens for money remittances or can exchange them for inner MMR tokens local fiat currencies through an agent system for use as payment for goods and services.
Vice president of business development in Africa Paul Scott explains benefits of BFY token: ”BFY token holders will be in a very strong, almost unique position to take advantage of those markets where mobile money penetration is becoming pervasive, and especially in those markets where mobile penetration will continue to increase as more people have access to affordable connectivity solutions through large-scale deployments, funded by corporate and developmental funding alike.”
The first phase of the ICO begins on November 6, 2017, at 12 p.m. London Time 12 p.m. (UTC+0) and will last until January 31, 2018, 10 p.m. or until the hard cap of $50 million has been reached. ICO rounds are scheduled as shown below, with existing token holders receiving significant discounts:
1. 6.11.17 – 12.11.17 Purchase BFY tokens with 20% discount.
2. 13.11.17 – 26.11.17 15% discount.
3. 27.11.17 – 17.12.17 10% discount.
4. 18.12.17 – 31.01.18 Last round with ordinary rates for BFY.
CTO of the MMRS project Marcelo Ferreira concludes: “In addition to buying the BFY at a discount during ICO, when they are available for trading in the market, the user / investor can hold the BFY betting on their valuation or trading at the market value already winning the spread of the discount offered during ICO. Outside of this obvious concept of token purchase of an ICO, there is the differential that the user can use the BFY within the Bank4YOU app and receive bonuses (described in the WP).”

Miami – November 4, 2017 – Mirach Capital, a group of family offices holding trophy assets in the arenas of real estate, hospitality, aviation, healthcare, waste management, energy and entertainment, today announced the launch of a USD $200 million dollar crypto-fund. Utilizing quantitative and fundamental analysis to evaluate various Initial Coin Offerings, Mirach intends to identify projects that are grounded in foundational strength with widespread real world applications. Mark Ryan, Chief Financial Officer at Mirach stated “We are cautiously optimistic about cryptocurrencies. With all the hype currently surrounding ICOs, it would be prudent to conduct careful analysis when evaluating these projects. The future seems very bright for the crypto-space with some very exciting projects, however, the path to hell often begins with good intentions.”
Mirach has reviewed a number of ICO projects within the Healthcare, Waste Management, Energy and Retail sectors. Unfortunately, very few projects have been able to demonstrate real world applications thereby enhancing utility of the tokens. Mirach’s landmark investment of USD $25 million dollars in 4NEW Limited, a Waste to Energy treatment facility integrated entirely on the blockchain network demonstrates the commitment the group has towards identifying robust and grounded projects with the appropriate use of blockchain technology. Mirach intends to identify 4 or 5 crypto projects annually that will be funded through its syndicate of family offices.
Mirach is a group of private family offices with diversified trophy assets under management ranging up to $400 million dollars. Industries covered include Real Estate, Hospitality, Aviation, Healthcare, Waste Management, Energy and Entertainment. Mirach has structured various high profile trophy asset transactions ranging from the Plaza hotel in New York to the Grosvenor House hotel in London. They also hold significant investments in healthcare ranging from Urgent Care centers, Pharmacies, Substance Abuse Medical Detox facilities and Mental Health Assisted Living Facilities.

LuckyToken is the first block-chained lottery, which excludes any manipulations with money. Transparency, anonymity, accessibility, and ability to track funds are the advantages of LuckyToken. Anyone interested in winning $5000000 prize can join in.
LuckyToken is the lottery on the blockchain. The best benefit of using blockchain is complete transactions transparency controlled by users. In addition, transactions are always copied, so all the participants have information about each other’s actions. As a result, every player of LuckyToken can make sure that all prizes are awarded in full according to lottery rules, without any third party involvement. Information about payments and the lottery mechanisms is for public access on the Etherum blockchain.
Despite the fact that the blockchain is an open database, it shows only numbers of digital wallets. Team of project creators and managers highly value personal privacy that is why LuckyToken users aren’t required to provide any ID information to play. Electronic wallet number is enough to take participate.
“We have taken all possible steps to ensure that data collection on our part does not exceed amounts necessary for rendering services and protecting your account” – says the administrator of LuckyToken.
Another advantage of the lottery is accessibility. Everyone who wants to earn money and receive a prize can participate. The financial condition doesn’t matter. Amounts left after awards distribution due to be spent on marketing, development and operational costs, project creators acquire only 10% of the income.
If participants legally win the prizes the payment is 100% guaranteed, as the prize fund of $5000000 is secured by a smart contract with multi-signatures. Such a system is a good protection from hackers and can be tracked at any time by any user.
Therefore, LuckyToken could be named the first transparent lottery in the world.
More information about LuckyToken:
• 1 of 14 people wins.
• Rules of the lottery don`t differ much. The player chooses 5 numbers from 1 to 75, as well as one additional number ranging from 1 to 15.

The smaller number of matches also have their own prize categories.

Mobile service providers often offer service plans, with the unlimited amounts of SMS for regular users. While mobile communications remain popular and pervasive, consumers are prone to turn away from traditional SMS and find more convenient solutions for them for messaging their friends and family members’ with digital messages and media.
In order to start profiting from the unused SMS messages, people will only have to download an instant messaging app and fix the number of SMS they want to sell. The messages will be sold automatically in the background of the app, and the earnings will be transferred to the wallet inside the app. Transparency and fairness of the payments will be guaranteed by using Smart Contracts.
“People do not send SMS anymore, as it’s more convenient for everybody to simply use instant messaging apps. We are developing a solution, which will be useful for everyone as people will get an opportunity to profit from selling something they actually don’t use, and the same time businesses pay top dollar for every single SMS message. Thus, people get an opportunity to put their unused SMS to good use, and businesses will get better service and significantly reduced costs.” states Audrius Vrubliauskas, the CEO of Birdchain
It is important to stress, that the same as using regular A2P services companies will have to provide their own contact list to set the campaign. Birdchain will not deliver an SMS to the app user’s contact list. It will also temporarily block incoming SMS and calls from the users that will have received transactional messages from them before.
The regular mobile service consumers, by selling their SMS will not feel being ripped-off for paying for the mobile service they are unable to use up, with the profit possibility making the deal even sweeter. Simultaneously, there are more advantages for businesses. Smart Contracts will guarantee that SMS is really sent to their contact, multiple peers will increase delivery speed, and companies will not be forced to commit to the fixed amount of the messages they must send.
The estimated global A2P SMS market value in 2015 was US$56 billion. It is expected to rocket up to US$84 billion by 2024.
Birdchain is a new A2P SMS service developed by a Lithuania-based company Vertex which has been operating in the market as A2P SMS aggregator since 2009. Its idea is both simple and groundbreaking. Birdchain will use specific blockchain features (as well as off-chain technologies) to distribute A2P SMS through regular people’s phones. To accelerate the development of the new service the company is going to launch an ICO in the late autumn.
