There’s a seismic shift happening in global economies right now and no regions in the world will benefit from that shift more than those in Africa. We founded Kingsland to bring disruptive tech skills education to globally underserved regions, and so partnering with Legacy Capital to bring our blockchain education programs to Mauritius is an exciting step,” said John Souza, CEO and Founder of Kingsland University School of Blockchain.

Kingsland’s blockchain developer training programs upskill existing full stack software developers with the skills necessary to build exciting blockchain projects that are transforming the future of every industry – from agriculture, to medicine and beyond. Kingsland also provides training programs for executives and government officials who want to understand the critical challenges and impacts of blockchain on their organisations and regulatory frameworks.

AI and Blockchain Technologies to Establish Innovative Smart Working Environments

Published

on

Sensitrust

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, smart working was still a niche paradigm adopted by few software startups, freelancers, and nomad workers. Despite the unfortunate consequences of Covid-19 in the worldwide economy, the mainstream adoption of smart working as a de-facto paradigm in the job market, let many professionals appreciate its benefits, such as the flexibility, as well as the reduced commute and costs, and a more balanced lifestyle.

Even after Covid-19, the revealed potential of smart working will impact many organizations, which will potentially evolve their business towards a hybrid model with a new schedule for professionals that blends physical and smart working. 

Sensitrust aims to push Smart Working to the next level by exploiting Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence technologies to create a smart working platform where customers and professionals can safely interact and make deals.

The Sensitrust platform will provide new mechanisms to facilitate smart working, and allow the development of products and services by means of the definition of a decentralized team.

Sensitrust

The platform will provide innovative safety measures and regulations based on AI and smart contracts to provide a secure and effective environment for the development of complex projects.

Sensitrust will support three main scenarios, namely the possibility to hire professionals from a catalog, the participation to an activity as a professional and the so-called “Call to action”, that is an innovative way to build a decentralized team to implement complex projects.

In all three scenarios, the AI engine will play an important role, since it will improve the efficiency, the effectiveness of the working practices, and the safety of negotiations and transactions in a decentralized environment.

Sensitrust 2

In particular, the AI engine, in addition to the customer and a set of external reviewers, will provide feedback on the quality of the work performed by professionals. After the work is approved, the professional will receive the agreed compensation.

While seeking for job opportunities, the AI engine will suggest the available activities, according to the verified skills of each professional. This “guided” approach aims at improving the success rate since it provides professionals with activities that better match with their true expertise.

Moreover, in the Call to Action, the AI engine will provide significant help in the customization of project campaigns to stimulate the active participation of in-platform professionals interested in the design and development of a product or service.

Finally, all the activities performed in the platform will be regulated by Smart Contracts: agreements, quality and temporal constraints, checkpoints and multiple revisions will be governed, in a decentralized, immutable, and certified manner.

SETS Token

SETS is the Sensitrust token that will be seamlessly integrated into the platform and allow users to access the platform services at a discounted price, such as:

  • Access to more qualified professionals (as a customer)
  • Access to more job opportunities (as professional)
  • Advertising opportunities
  • Advanced platform consultant, based on both AI and human experts
  • Stronger guarantees on products and services
  • Access to in-platform training material
  • Membership Subscriptions (all-inclusive packages)

Once the platform is launched, the token value considered to buy in-platform services will be the market price. For this reason, purchasing tokens during the token sale gives the unique opportunity to benefit from a value appreciation right after the token sale. Moreover, participants to the token sale will benefit from the exclusive advantages, including the early access to the platform functionalities and the free access to premium features during the initial stages of the platform launch.

SETS Tokens can be currently purchased through the official platform website: https://www.sensitrust.io at an exclusive price of 0.08€ /SETS, through Ethereum, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Tron, USDT (ERC20) and Bank transfer. Do not miss this opportunity!

Scalable Proof of Stake Coin PIVX Now Available for Staking on HolyTransaction Exchange

Published

on

HolyTransaction Exchange

Proof-of-Stake (PoS) concept is taking off in recent times as crypto projects are looking to cut down on the issues related to the traditional Proof-of-Work (PoW) approach used by Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies. Ever since Ethereum announced to move to the POS approach, there is increased interest around the sector as a valid alternative. This is fundamentally a paradigm shift happening in the industry and new players are eager to start with PoS from the start rather than starting with PoW and having to migrate to the former in the future.

Introducing PIVX on HolyTransaction Exchange

best PIVX wallets

Private Instant Verified Transaction (PIVX) is a cryptocurrency protocol with a native coin of the same name. The cryptocurrency can now be owned and staked on HolyTransaction, a popular cryptocurrency exchange with a strong resolve to provide the complete blockchain experience and capabilities to each user.

Normally, cryptocurrency exchanges have complete control over the funds of users and thus, they don’t have the flexibility to offer services like staking for more returns. Staking is basically a feature of the PoS mining approach in which users lock their funds for a limited time and then earn rewards on them like one does as interest on a bank account. This feature has been missing in the cryptocurrency industry for a while and a person’s total wealth doesn’t increase with time and rather remains stagnant.

PoW vs PoS

PoW uses a different approach in which energy-intensive computing machinery is used and participants are rewarded based on the sheer power of their dedicated resources. Many people believe this is unfair as new miners have to constantly dump new coins to remain afloat.

In PoS, on the other hand, a fixed amount is locked into place like a fixed deposit account and one earns mining dividends on it. This automatically creates a choked supply of the cryptocurrency for the investors and encourages users to lock more and more coins in place and earn staking rewards. This is one of the reasons why many smaller projects are looking to either migrate to PoS mining or start with it from the very beginning. It is less energy-intensive and arguably fairer than the PoW approach.

HolyTransaction’s Staking Services

HolyTransaction wallet is now offering various PoS coins on its official exchange platform. While coin exchangeability is often offered readily by exchanges, they don’t offer the full experience because of their limited functionalities.

With HolyTransaction, one can not only own these new up-and-coming cryptocurrencies they can also have complete access to them in addition to having access to staking features.

PIVX Features

PIVX, exclusively available on HolyTransaction has the following key features:

  1. Privacy Protocol to help make anonymous transactions.
  2. Fast network and transaction times.
  3. Low Fees
  4. Energy efficiency due to the use of the PoS system
  5. Community-based development and future roadmap-based approach.

The current market capitalisation of PIVX is around $30 million with a price of $0.5. The total number of coins in circulation is 56,781,166.
