eToro Becomes First Investment Platform to Offer Binance Coin

Published

on

eToro Binance Coin

eToro, the global, multi-asset, investment platform with over ten million registered users, has today added the Binance Coin (BNB) to its product range. This brings the total number of cryptoassets available on eToro to thirteen. eToro is the first platform to offer BNB to investors and traders to buy or sell using fiat.

BNB is a token issued by Binance, which is one of the world’s largest crypto exchanges. Following an ICO in 2017, Binance issued BNB which is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain. BNB is ‘the gas that powers the Binance ecosystem’ which means that it can be used to pay trading fees at a discount and with partner applications. Binance plans to develop a decentralised exchange (Binance Chain) which will use BNB to power it. BNB was established with a total supply of 200 million tokens and Binance repurchases and ‘burns’ tokens each quarter. This will continue until 50 percent of the total supply is burnt.

As investors increasingly seek to diversify their crypto holdings, BNB joins Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, XRP, Litecoin, Ethereum Classic, Dash, Stellar, NEO, EOS, Cardano and IOTA on the eToro platform.

BNB will also be added to eToro’s CryptoPortfolio, which enables investors to diversify across all available cryptocurrencies (weighted by market cap) with just one click.

Like all other cryptoassets, investors choosing BNB on eToro own the real underlying asset, with eToro acting as custodian.

eToro LogoYoni Assia, Co-founder and CEO at eToro commented: “Despite sensational headlines about the death of crypto, we continue to believe in the potential for crypto assets, as do our clients who are increasingly looking to diversify their crypto holdings. In response we will continue to add the leading crypto assets to our range and we are pleased to add BNB to the platform.

“As a regulated securities broker we have the ability to offer both utility and security tokens on our platform. We support the movement of assets onto the blockchain and the tokenisation of securities. In fact, we believe that in the future we will see the greatest transfer of wealth ever, onto the blockchain.”

Changpeng Zhao, Founder and CEO of Binance, said: “We are honoured and excited to be listed on eToro. With this addition, the Binance coin can reach millions more people, many of whom are more accustomed to the traditional financial industry.  As an utility token, we believe in creating long term utility and value. We will continue to do so together with eToro.”

The program was launched to give developers in Africa the opportunity to gain the skills to become industry-ready blockchain developers and empower them with the tools they need to leverage blockchain to solve some of the pressing problems in Africa and the world.

ConsensysThe first cohort of the program is graduating in July 2019 and applications are now open for the second cohort starting in August 2019. Africa Blockchain Alliance is looking to increase the number of developers and country representation with this next cohort and will also be awarding scholarships to a number of developers for the program, thanks to a $10,000 grant from ConsenSys Grants, which was announced during the 2019 Ethereal Summit in New York in May 2019.

The program, which is mostly online with in-person sessions in select cities, gives developers in Africa access to ConsenSys Academy’s Developer course at a significantly discounted rate.

VibraVid: A Solution to YouTube Woes

Published

on

VIBRAVID

We mostly use the internet nowadays, even children at their very young ages are hooked on to the gadgets and the internet. They even have their own YouTube stars and sensations. Indeed, Ryan of Ryan Toys Review was recorded by Forbes as YouTube’s highest-earning star, raking in $22m.  

VIbraVid

A seven-year-old boy who reviews toys has been revealed as YouTube’s highest-earning star, raking in $22m (£17.3m).

The young boy was asked by the NBC, why kids liked watching his videos, Ryan – who is now eight – replied: “Because I’m entertaining and I’m funny.”

Every toy that he features on his blog was instantly selling out making him get more sponsors, doubling his net worth. 

When you gave your smartphone to your child and they started to play random videos on YouTube, did they get a penny from watching them? Aside from gadgets being harmful to mental health and eyesight if they’re spending more time on the internet, maybe they can learn some words and things from it. The video creator will surely earn when your kiddo watches the videos, what about your child? Absolutely not.

On the other hand, old vloggers may be lucky as they already built a strong fan base before this industry hit the market so hard, but things are not in favor of new YouTube vloggers. Huge numbers of them are struggling to promote their contents. Simply because there are too many of them competing now. They’re having a hard time gaining real followers that will support them from start to end. It becomes a competition where things are really unfortunate and makes them lose their passion.

As we stand on the threshold of the next wave of the digital content revolution with the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), this digital content vulnerability could become more than problematic unless we transform the basic platform that we use.

What if we combine it with Blockchain?

What if we tokenise everything?

What if we use the platform, VIBRAVID

VibraVid is a decentralised online sharing platform built on the TRON blockchain that’s aiming to become a decentralised answer to the industry giants like YouTube. The platform aims to transform how consumers interact with digital content and in the process increase the revenue potential for content creators.

VibraVid aims to deliver content directly from creators to users, thereby eliminating the presence of intermediaries in the form of record companies, labels, physical media manufacturers, banking organisations, etc. As a result, internal reserves for revenue creators of content will be significantly increased.  

In the VibraVid Platform, both content creators and fans/listeners can earn money with the innovation of Blockchain.

What is BeatzCoin? 

BeatzCoinBeatzCoin is a cryptocurrency that has value, just like Bitcoin (BTC), and is used in transactions and functions in the VibraVid platform. It is built on the Tron (TRX) network. With Tron, MainNet will be used for all cryptocurrency transactions made between users. Transactions made within the platform, between wallets have been tested to be confirmed in 3-5 seconds. BeatzCoin can be bought and used to pay for video and audio content, marketing and advertising by users, creators and advertisers. You can also earn BeatzCoin through airdrops, bounties, content creation, publishing, promotion, sales, rentals, events, event tickets, fan merchandise, tips, crowdfunding donations and staking. 

BeatzCoin was endorsed by the famous blockchain influencer John McAfee, who is an outspoken member of the team. They have recently completed the private beta test and will launch the app publicly as early as July 31st.

Making money is now easy, but remember, just because you made a lot of money doesn’t mean you know how to spend or invest it well. Do not lose faith because you’re struggling with platforms such as YouTube, there is an alternative, VibraVid. Continue making great content, continue positively influencing people’s lives, but get what you deserve, be a pioneer with VibraVid.
