Internet of Coins has announced the launch of “Hybrid Asset”, an inter-systemic, cross blockchain token. The Crowdsale goes live on March 21, 2017.

Internet of Coins is a not for profit initiative created to maintain decentralization of cryptocurrency infrastructure by allowing cross-compatibility of digital assets between blockchains. The organization aims to enable the free and unlimited exchange of value among blockchain-based systems and other financial systems.

The asset, which is currently under development, enables transfer of value between ledger systems without needing any update or adaptation of the existing cryptocurrency source code.

Since the launch of their whitepaper in 2014, the development team has been consistently at work on the project codes. Coinstorm, the project’s launch campaign was recently announced by the team. Through Coinstorm, Internet of Coins is encouraging a revolutionary collaboration among cryptocurrency enthusiasts to further decentralize the alternative economy scene.

Internet of Coins has also announced an upcoming Internet of Coins crowdsale on March 21, 2017. The platform has early bird options in place for investors interested in receiving a 5% discount during the crowdsale. More details about it can be availed by contacting the organization on its website.

Joachim de Koning, the founder of Internet of Coins said about the project’s aim, “Our goal is to create a coherent whole out of the decentralized economy initiatives we see today. There are more than a few decentralized exchange initiatives out there that we are bonding together to form a decentralized financial web.”

The hybrid asset functions as a dynamic portfolio, spreading the risk from holding value on a single blockchain to storing it on multiple chains. Designed with a strong meta-level approach, the hybrid asset offers safety from cryptocurrency volatility and blockchain failures by providing a new vehicle for value storage.

The founders of Internet of Coins expect the hybrid asset distribution to lead to an increase in liquidity on decentralized exchanges while ensuring interconnectivity between different cryptocurrency systems with their own values and beliefs about what decentralized value is and how it should work.

Regarding the aim of Internet of Coins, the co-founder Robert de Groot adds, “With this system, we aim to make everyone an exchange, to take away the risks of trusting a centralized third party and to connect alternative economies across geographical borders. Exchanging value should become as easy as swapping files; we aim for Internet of Coins to become the Bittorrent of cryptocurrencies and asset systems.”

Combining Technologies the IoC Way

23 Feb 2017 / Dotrego

The blockchain and cryptocurrency scene is hot right now. It looks like everyone wants a piece of it, and there are a plethora of new experiments and technologies popping up all over the scene. Some people have only just discovered Bitcoin, its possibilities and potential applications. Other people have gone further to explore technologies like Bitshares, CounterParty or Waves and have been playing with the various token systems and smart contracts that are available on these platforms.

There are initiatives to make blockchain technology easier to use. These take the form of online wallets and block explorers, while going deeper one finds entire contract compilation systems implemented into easy-to-use websites. Enthousiastic users of cryptocurrency are also trying out decentralized exchanges like EtherDelta, the NXT Asset Exchange, or playing around with Mosaics on the New Economy Movement platform.

However, in all the activity and clamour, users are still pining for an environment that brings all these initiatives together in an understandable and secure way. Internet of Coins (IoC) want to create this place without a for-profit motive, guaranteeing objectivity, equality and freedom of development and use of all the novel peer-to-peer financial technologies. They also want it to be an environment that people with no technological experience can use, and feel comfortable with.

Internet of Coins is geared to being such an environment, and its development has been underway for some time now. The foundations for a decentralized financial web have been set down at its core, and its mission and objective is to make sure all the different platforms, ecosystems and technologies that are out there become accessible to anyone and everyone.

To boost development of its easy-to-use hybrid asset technology, and make it available sooner, Internet of Coins is organizing a crowdfund to ensure further integration of blockchain finance technologies. As a perk to invite people to start using the environment they are giving out hybrid tokens that run on multiple blockchains simultaneously, merging their innovations and technological power.

Hybrid is a unique token, as it functions as a diversification portfolio of multiple blockchain technologies, and spreads risk of failure of any one of these systems. At the same time it facilitates decentralized trade on all the underlying platforms and has a focus on creating liquidity. This kind of experiment has not been done before in the blockchain arena, and is sure to bring about new cross-blockchain ideas and experiments.

So where is this all going? They are sailing for a new horizon, where anyone can use blockchain technology, crypto tokens and deterministic transactions, without having to explicitly think about how to do it. Using advanced distributed ledger technology should be available for everyone, whether it's you, me, your parents or grandparents. It should be as easy as sending an e-mail. And seeing the developments at Internet of Coins, that's where it looks to be going.

Reflection on Where We Are Taking Blockchain Finance

02 Feb 2017 / admin

During the inception of decentralized, blockchain driven ledgers, many developers in the early blockchain scene had a clear vision in mind. Reading through the messages in the forums back in the day it was evident collaborative developments were driven by a personal vision for freedom and change in finance. Not by greed, coercion, or lust for power. Rather, for most crypto enthousiasts, it was as if all shared an unwritten conviction, or invisible manifesto. It held a common dream to unite for a better financial world. A future in which not just money, but benevolence, brotherhood and kindness would play the headlines. 

However, as the characteristics of money and what it ethically entangles entered the play, it did not take long for those early passionate minds full of ideals to succumb to the promises, expectancies and enticements of wealth. Venture capitalist money started flowing, with projects being funded based on their face-value merits. The young cryptocurrency markets started making wild swings in which the intelligence of but a few could fleece the masses of their small stashes of blockchain-stored value.

Throughout these changes the kindred spirits were not entirely erased from the scene, but their once vibrant voices were now largely being drowned out by corporate and political sweeps for competitive power. They hammered down solid pillars in this pristine land of ideology, upon which sharp, perceptive vultures can perch to lay claim to their next spoil.

The prospect of a blade-runner style world becomes more realistic, as now also governmental organizations are closing in on the blockchain phenomena, aiming for a tight grip of regulation and control. Beyond the view of the technical developer enthousiasts, they forge the iron gears of our destination with systematic diligence.

Perhaps taking some time for reflection would be prudent. Where do we want the blockchain industry to go from here? How are we going to help out through positive action? What ideals have we given up in this theatrical game with all its loud players? Which ashes have we gained for trees, and how may we identify the ramifications of our developmental actions for the future of not only our personal finance, but also the future of other people? The growing Internet of Value scene is a place to tread boldly, yet also carefully, because what we do doesn't only concern ourselves. If we don't develop and do business with open eyes and open hearts, the world of money and value will see yet another uninspiring era full of Groundhog Days.

So where are our manifesto's and convictions now? It is my hope we may find the strength and dedication in this to work together for freedom and positive change. Collaborating with eachother instead of merely competing. Guarding ourselves against corruption. To break barriers in finance to the advantage of all, and not just a few, making our daily lives and actions more benevolent and our Internet a better place to be.
