Fantom is developing a smart contract platform based on the Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) technology

Korean blockchain project Fantom, which gathered more than $ 39 million at the ICO in June, announced an agreement with Japanese real estate corporation Tosei, which controls more than $ 5.5 billion in assets, on Monday.

Fantom is developing a smart contract platform based on the Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) technology, focused on solving scalability and transaction confirmation times that are present in existing blockchains. It is expected that the Opera blockchain being developed by Fantom will allow making payments in real time with minimal costs (less than $ 0.01) in conditions of unlimited scalability.

Integrating the Fantom solution into Tosei systems will optimize the property purchase process and the associated calculations on a large scale and  millions of dollars on commissions. According to the developers, decentralized technology can have a positive impact on the real estate industry, where commissions sometimes reach 5% of the transaction amount.

With cumbersome contract procedures, lengthy processing times, and concerns around transparency, there are many friction points within the construction and property industry. Fantom has the potential to ease, address and solve these challenges not just for us but for the whole real estate sector. The marriage between real estate and Fantom is one of the strongest arguments for how decentralisation is not only a disruptor, but also an architect in building a framework for efficient ways of conducting end-to-end business.

Bitfinex's LEO Token Whitpaper to be Released

Public stage of tokensale may not be conducted if hardcap of $1B won't be reached during closed sale
08 May 2019   276

Bitfinex Cryptocurrency Exchange published the whitepaper LEO token, with which it intends to raise $ 1 billion during the initial exchange offering (IEO).

It is expected that this amount will allow to fill the previously formed deficit of $ 850 million - the site operator will redeem tokens monthly for an amount of 27% of the profits.

Private stage of tokensale ends on May 11. If the intended hardcap won't be reached by this time, Bitfinex may refuse the public part of the campaign.

If fewer than 1 billion USDt tokens are sold by private token sale, the Issuer may thereafter sell remaining tokens at times and in a manner it deems appropriate in its sole discretion, consistent with applicable law. 
 

LEO Whitepaper

The issuer of the LEO token is Unus Sed Leo Limited, the newly registered IEO-iFinex platform.

The document also says that iFinex, which will be launched in June, will actively participate in the development of the second-tier Lightning Network.

iFinex has joined with a number of other companies and individuals to help develop and finalize the support for digital assets on Lightning Network. Ideally, digital assets developed and introduced by iFinex, including the LEO token, will be among the first digital assets launched on the Lighting Network.
 

LEO Whitepaper

In addition, Bitfinex plans to create a “a licensed and regulated security tokens exchange”, launch a derivative product with security at USDT and leverage up to 100x, as well as the Dazaar Big Data Marketplace and Betfinex exchange rates.

Another project will be the modular set of tools, libraries and protocols μFinex, based on the principles of open source. It will be used in both exchange and derivative products.

It worth reminding that in late April, the Attorney General’s Office of New York reported receiving a court order against Bitfinex in connection with the alleged loss of the last $ 850 million and the concealment of this fact from market participants.

Representatives of the trading platform said that we are not talking about permanent loss. These funds are frozen in bank accounts of Panamanian processing Crypto Capital Corp., located in four countries.

To ensure liquidity, Bitfinex was forced to use Tether Limited's funds for a loan and, according to the AG’s Office, has already received $ 750 million from the company's reserves. This was considered by the department as a crime.

On May 7, the New York State Supreme Court upheld the injunction against the Bitfinex Bitcoin Exchange, which does not allow Tether Limited to use its reserves for Exchange lending and other investment activities.
