Distributed database that is used to maintain a continuously growing list of records, called blocks

Creators of the decentralized exchange Bisq announced that they will not provide the ICO, which was extremely popular in the crypto-currency community. Instead, the exchange published a whitepaper of the upcoming decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).

Very contrary to the infamous ICO models where people ask for a lot of money for whitepaper-ware we have a working platform developed by altruistic contributions and donations which is out since more than a year and we will distribute the ownership and management to those who have contributed to the project - those who helped to make a decentralized exchange reality!

Also, Manfred made this tough statement:

We are NOT doing an ICO and not selling tokens!

BSQ tokens will be spread among 200-400 people, which supported the project earlier. When DAO will launch, these tokens will be sold at Bisq.

Additional information will be provided in the nearest future. But even now team says that DAO will have several stages. 

First stage is almost ready to start, but it needs additional tests. Second is planned to be held approx. in October 2017. It will also consist of voting and periodically token emission.

Creators are opened for all feedbacks and suggestions and ready to answer people's questions.

Bisq was known as Bitsquare and it was launched in beta mode in April 2016.

The Swiss luxury watch maker Franck Muller, in partnership with the cryptocurrency trading platform Regal Assets, launched Encrypto, the world's first functional bitcoin watch. This is reported by the Coindesk.

The main feature of Encrypto will be the possibility of "deep storage" of Bitcoin. So, along with the watch, customers will receive a USB wallet containing a private key to the wallet, the public key is applied to the watch face.

A limited line of watches (up to 500 units of male and female models) priced from $ 10 to $ 60 thousand is also available in the online store of Franck Muller, as well as in the company store in Dubai. Along with traditional credit card and bank transfer, you can buy them for Bitcoins.

The company also reported that they are considering the possibility of issuing such watches with the support of other leading cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum and XRP.

In the beginning of the year it became known that the Swiss watch manufacturer A. Favre & Fils is developing a handmade mechanical watch with a built-in cryptocurrency wallet.
