Do not miss the first smart token launched

For the first time in history, there is the world’s first smart token that can allow a crypto platform built with Ethereum to flourish

Because it is highly profitable for new types of economies to exist within a token market of growing robustness.

Ethereum

Is an open-source blockchain-based distributed computing platform featuring smart contract functionality, which facilitates online contractual agreements 

The 22 June of 2017 marked a historic event of the cryptocurrency world – the birth of BNT, the first smart token that has eventually been activated at 2 pm GMT. This smart contract introduces new mechanisms that have never been used on the Ethereum blockchain.

Interestingly, this is the first time, an ever-liquid token has ever been developed live in the field. The ability to transfer, purchase and liquidate BNT through the smart token’s contract will be enabled gradually during 7 days following the fundraiser closing. BNT can be easily purchased by sending ETH to an address – which immediately issues BNT tokens back to the sender, updating its current price. The fundraiser will run for two weeks or as long as the hidden cap is reached. Founders and team contributors will be subject to a three-year vesting schedule.

According to the Bancor protocol, a standard for a new generation of cryptocurrencies, the price of BNT increases no matter when it is purchased and decreases in the meantime of selling. Both of these processes depend on the transaction size that maintains an exact 10% reserve ratio, which is always available and consists of its market cap. Given into consideration a security matter, funds are held via multi-sig wallets according to industry best practices.

One of the most important key features of BNT is that it does not relate to buyers and sellers in any exchange. Tens of millions of dollars have already been deposited into and removed from the BNT reserve via this smart token contract and it goes without saying that it is an absolute sensation. In addition, this novel pricing model relies on buys and sells, neither speculation nor slippage.

Judging by different markets, it is evidently true that the smart token unprecedentedly provides a price anchor across exchanges and reduces its own volatility. The post-TGE price charts of popular token sales illustrate that the rise as well as fall is smoother than anything analytics have ever seen.

The mission of BNT is to achieve the stability, which is ultimately healthier for real usage, by real people, in real communities, without any speculators and crashes. BNT has already been traded on Bittrex and Liqui and it will be issued on other exchanges this week. 

AION to Unveil Future Plans

Foundation sold half the BTC and ETH, and it did it very well - at the beginning of this year

The Aion Foundation, which is responsible for the development of the protocol of the same name and collected $ 23 million in Bitcoin and Ethereum on ICO in October last year, published a report in which it shared information about its financial operations. The report was prepared with the support of Deloitte, however, it cannot formally be considered an audit.

According to the Aion Foundation CEO Matthew Spoke, the foundation sold half the BTC and ETH, and it did it very well - at the beginning of this year. Having spent $ 10 million on launching its blockchain platform and opening offices in Canada, China and Barbados, the fund had assets of $ 14 million as of October 31 of this year, $ 5.8 million of which was placed in Fiat.

We’ve liquidated a decent amount of our bitcoin and eth that we raised as proceeds to make sure that we are stable in this type of period. As we continue to spend in our operations we’ll end up liquidating more bitcoin and eth over the course of the next few months.
 

Matt Spoke

CEO, Aion Foundation

The Aion protocol has already attracted active users, including the video game start-up ClanPlay, but Spoke claims that his company will continue to rely on hard currency.

The foundation has roughly 18 months of runway, Spock estimates, while developing his system to a level at which it can compete with centralized counterparts, such as Amazon Web Services, will take about five years. Aion expects to launch its first Java-based virtual  machine, thanks to which developers can use decentralized tools, by the second quarter of next year.

Spoke suggests that at this time his company will have to attract additional funding from cryptocurrency funds and accredited investors in exchange for their own tokens. His goal is to prevent the reduction of the team, which currently includes 61 people, and the operation of the Ethereum model of ConsenSys, a company sponsoring projects in its own ecosystem.

In the future, Aion intends to publish such reports on a quarterly basis and transfer data to the Messari network in order to increase the confidence of its tokens holders.
