Retail Conglomerate Launches Online Mall Accepting Only MegaX and Bitcoin Cash

Singapore-based MegaX introduces first-of-its-kind global millennial online mall having raised USD2.5M from a token sale concluded on 16 November 2017.

MegaX, a partnership between iFashion Group and MC Payment, has launched an online mall targeted at millennials. Having been in the retail industry since 2009, the mall has served over 1 million customers worldwide. The mall will provide visitors with access to over 1,500 global brands and 80,000 products, featuring items such as the Google Pixel 2, the Oculus Rift Touch VR System, iPhone X and even adrenaline-pumping toys like the hydro jet that allows you to hover above the sea. The online mall will also include exclusive concierge service which aims to provide shoppers looking for a getaway with unique holiday experiences. Expect packages such as exotic stays in Irish castles, silver mines, airplane fuselages and even ice hotels.

The ability to transact using MGX coins and other cryptocurrencies will provide crypto-savvy millennials with the opportunity to experience a new retail phenomenon in the future of cashless society. MegaX envisions and has been working towards a future where ultimately MGX, the native currency, will be the cryptocurrency of choice for millennials to earn, spend and transact. A fresh and emerging retail network, MegaX will pave the way for emerging retailers to engage with millenials.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is an example of an evolved cryptocurrency that is ready for real-world use and is able to cater to retailers’ needs such as having faster transactions and lower fees. “By only accepting MGX and BCH instead of fiat for payments, we are determined to bring about real-world adoption of cryptocurrencies,’ said Jeremy Khoo, Group CEO, iFashion Group. “Despite a market cap of 728 billion USD in cryptocurrencies right now, most retailers do not accept them as a form of payment. Retailers looking to resonate with the new generation of consumers should be fearlessly agile and open to adopting new payment forms. Cryptocurrencies has seen unprecedented growth in 2017 and we believe that growth will continue.”

Megaxstore.com is piloting a rollout by accepting Bitcoin Cash. MegaX aims to help new-age retailers and cryptocurrencies reach out to a large addressable market, the millennials. A 2016 Accenture report states that within Asia alone, millennials are expected to collectively constitute USD 6 trillion in disposable income by 2020. According to a CBRE survey, 30% of this income is spent on leisure activities such as shopping and eating out.

MGX as a cryptocurrency revolves around the millennial movement and aims to create a retail revolution by better engaging with these segment of customers and being their currency of choice. The retail companies behind MegaX have served more than 10 million customers and will use an omni-channel approach in spurring real world adoption of MGX. Token holders can also expect to pay with MGX at multiple native offline events such as the next installation of Artbox Singapore – a creative market concept popularised in Thailand, which attracted over 600,000 attendees and totaled 30 million USD in transaction volume during its inaugural Singapore outing over 2 weekends in April 2017.

PR: PodOne Adds Veteran Industry Insider to Team and Launches ICO to Revolutionize the Contact Center Industry

PodOne Adds Veteran Industry Insider to Team and Launches ICO to Revolutionize the Contact Center Industry

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

PodOne is launching the next global phase in call and contact center services, bringing together employers and agents through its decentralized network while optimizing staff time, reducing labor costs and elevating a new standard in training. The company is launching its Qubicle ICO on January 15th, 2018 to raise funds for the development of their product roadmap.

They also announced the addition of Rob Duncan, the former COO of successful work-at-home call center pioneer Alpine Access to the team of advisors. Rob oversaw operations at Alpine Access until it was acquired by Sykes Interactive, a $ 1.2B contact center business process outsourcer, for $ 150M and was rebranded to Sykes Home.

PodOne comes from the creators of Fenero, a well-known provider of contact center software with over 2,200+ call and contact centers using the platform in over 20 countries.

“Call centers have earned a mixed reputation through hit-or-miss customer service and poor quality standards,” says Marlon Williams, Founder and CEO of PodOne and Fenero. “With PodOne, we are on a mission to change this narrative by changing the way the industry works, in the first decentralized network of contact center professionals, with requisite substantive training and by introducing incentives for top-graded customer service representatives.”

Mr. Williams also stated, “With global online sales on a steady upward projection, it is now more critical than ever to have high, consistent standards of customer service through contact centers. Brands need to assure their customers that they can rely on the sales and after-sales call center service.”

As reported previously, the Miami, FL based company also officially filed for a U.S. patent in November 2017 to cover their method for using blockchain-based technology to handle employer-to-agent work requests, pooling excess time in a marketplace, and elastic staffing of human resources.

An Ethereum-based token, Qubicle (pronounced “cubicle”), will be issued during the ICO to serve as an incentive and rewards program for high performing customer service agents and is also the only method of transacting on the network. Publishing content, participating in PodOne University, and facilitating payment for services will all be completed via the QBE tokens in users’ PodOne Wallet. In general, 100,000,000 QBE tokens will be created, with 70% being available during the token sale (January 15th, 2018 to February 15th, 2018).

The team behind PodOne has spent the last 15+ years in the contact center technology industry and brings a built-in demand for PodOne services from its existing customer base. Their token distribution event offers attractive discounted token prices and provides an outstanding investment opportunity for contact center professionals and cryptocurrency investors and enthusiasts alike.

Showing awareness of bitcoin’s volatility, the company has set up a Facebook Live feed, displaying the number of bitcoins needed to pay for the meal. The video played for four hours.

“Despite the ups and downs of Bitcoin, the Colonel’s Original Recipe is as good as always. So, trade your Bitcoins for buckets and invest in something finger lickin’ good.”

How About Alt-recipes?

The post has a lot of comments suggesting KFC should accept altcoins over bitcoin.“Use XRP, ” wrote a Twitter user. “You should accept verge currency, much faster than BTC, ” wrote another.

Litecoin Creator Charlie Lee retweeted the post saying Litecoin would be a better option for KFC.

CME Launches Bitcoin Futures Trading Simulator

December 31, 2017 |

CME Launches Bitcoin Futures Trading Simulator

Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) has launched a market simulation tool that allows newcomers to practice trading bitcoin futures without risking any capital. The free tool has been added to the company’s ‘CME Institute Suite’.

Also Read: Thailand’s Year of Bitcoin Ends With Central Bank Education Push

CME Tweeted About the New Simulator on December 27th – Less Than Two Weeks After Launching Its Bitcoin Futures Markets

CME Launches Bitcoin Futures Trading SimulatorEarlier this week, CME posted on Twitter alerting followers that the company had launched its new bitcoin futures simulator. The simulator will offer new investors the opportunity to practice trading the bitcoin futures markets without risking any capital losses, and will also allow more experienced traders to try out the company’s platform and experiment with new trading strategies in a risk-free environment.

The launch of the market simulation tool is likely designed to attract new participants in the bitcoin markets to CME in a bid to attain dominance in the bitcoin futures contracts-for-difference (CFD) markets.

On December 18th, CME Became the Second United States-Based Financial Market Company to Launch Bitcoin Futures

CME Launches Bitcoin Futures Trading SimulatorCME’s bitcoin futures launch followed that of CBOE – who launched their bitcoin futures contracts on December 10th. The new markets have also been exposed to traders using major retail brokerages – with TD Ameritrade allowing clients to trade CBOE’s futures contracts, and Interactive Brokers recently announcing its intention to soon allow customers to trade CME’s futures contracts in addition to CBOE’s bitcoin CFDs. Interactive Brokers claimed that it handled over half of the trading volume seen on CBOE’s launch day, despite the platform maintaining a margin requirement 150% larger than CBOE.

Major market-making firms DRW, DV Trading, and Akuna Capital have also indicated that they will provide liquidity to the bitcoin futures markets.

Despite the hype leading up to the launch of the bitcoin futures market, volume has thus far been dwarfed by the scale of trade being conducted on leading cryptocurrency exchanges. As of this writing, 1,078 contracts have been traded on CME, and 4,790 on CBOE.

Edward Snowden Launches Open Source Safe Room App

December 24, 2017 |

Edward Snowden's Open Source Safe Room Fits in Your Pocket

Smartphones aren’t just about basic communication. They hold intensely personal information, financial records, hordes of cryptocurrencies. As valuable as they are to owners, they’re at least that or more to those who might do harm. Dissident Edward Snowden is helping to launch Haven, an open source project designed to help protect investigative journalists, human rights defenders, and government corruption whistleblowers.

Edward Snowden's Open Source Safe Room Fits in Your Pocket

Snowden Offers Peace of Mind Application in Public Beta

“Haven is for people who need a way to protect their personal spaces and possessions without compromising their own privacy,” the project’s Github explains. “It is an Android application that leverages on-device sensors to provide monitoring and protection of physical spaces. Haven turns any Android phone into a motion, sound, vibration and light detector, watching for unexpected guests and unwanted intruders.”

It’s the pet project of noted US government whistleblower Edward Snowden. He’s best known for having run afoul of the one hundred year old Espionage Act and stealing government documents. As a CIA contractor, he evidently obtained unauthorized access to previously publicly unknown surveillance nets used by governments and telecommunication giants. The sensitivity of the information he nabbed meant immediate efforts to seek asylum, and he eventually was accepted by Russia in 2013. Excerpts from Mr. Snowden’s documents were published in The Guardian, Washington Post, New York Times, Le Monde, and Der Spiegel.

Edward Snowden's Open Source Safe Room Fits in Your Pocket

The open source, beta release was initially meant for “investigative journalists, human rights defenders, and people at risk of forced disappearance to create a new kind of herd immunity. By combining the array of sensors found in any smartphone, with the world’s most secure communications technologies, like Signal and Tor, Haven prevents the worst kind of people from silencing citizens without getting caught in the act,” the site claims.

The application came about through funding from the Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF), an organization designed to give support to whistleblowers like Mr. Snowden and in the tradition of Daniel Ellsberg, not to mention journalists such as Glenn Greenwald. FPF was instrumental in developing Secure Drop, originally conceived by Aaron Swartz, assisting as a go-around for Wikileaks, thwarting the cabal to block its funding.

Edward Snowden's Open Source Safe Room Fits in Your Pocket

Intercept Journalist Gives it a Whirl

Investigative journalist Micah Lee of The Intercept notes his entire professional livelihood is contained on his laptop and other devices. He follows encryption protocols, but that wouldn’t prevent tampering without his knowing. “If I come back and continue to use my compromised computer, the attacker could gain access to everything,” he writes.

The application “only saves images and sound when triggered by motion or volume, and stores everything locally on the device,” according to the site. “You can position the device’s camera to capture visible motion, or set your phone somewhere discreet to just listen for noises. Get secure notifications of intrusion events instantly and access the logs remotely or anytime later.”

Mr. Lee, who helped in developing Haven, points to its potential limitations. False positives are probably the easiest example. Having settings designed to be extra sensitive would capture routine goings-on, taking up valuable space and possibly contributing to undue paranoia. “You definitely need a separate Android device to use Haven effectively,” he warns. “A clever attacker who knows that you’re using Haven could jam the wifi, mobile data, and SMS wireless frequencies, preventing Haven from sending you notifications. The attacker could then attempt to access the phone to delete the local evidence logs from the device as well,” he points out.

Edward Snowden's Open Source Safe Room Fits in Your Pocket

Less obviously, “If an attacker can both jam your Haven phone’s radio signals and also hack into it to delete the evidence of intrusion,” Mr. Lee continues, “it’s possible for them to then still do an evil maid attack on your laptop without getting caught.” There also a lot of little steps to make a so-called safe room. A couple of times Mr. Lee “positioned my Haven phone in the right place, made sure it was connected to wifi so I could get notifications, and plugged in so the battery wouldn’t die, but then forgot to actually activate the app. Several hours later when I returned to my room and found the Haven phone deactivated, I had no way of knowing if an intrusion occurred or not.”

As with any beta rollout, there are bugs to be found, and that’s why the code has been released open source. Everyone is encouraged to contribute to making the application that much more secure and usable, rather than just a way to pick up loud noises.

For now, it’s only available through Google Play. Apple users will have to wait for a direct application, the project insists, but in the meantime can snag an Android burner phone, and then if “you run Signal on your iPhone, you can configure Haven on Android to send encrypted notifications, with photos and audio, directly to you. If you enable the Tor Onion Service feature in Haven (requires installing Orbot app as well), you can remotely access all Haven log data from your iPhone, using the Onion Browser app,” they urge.

The expanded platform will retain the ease of use that is so compelling for entry-level cryptocurrency adopters but will now provide the support, functionality and flexibility that can be found in more traditional fiat based financial institutions. The added ability to manage Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum-based tokens within your Bread wallet will be the first of several improvements.

Many banks and credit card companies offer loyalty programs to retain users and increase the value of their products. As Bread progresses towards becoming the world’s largest, decentralized financial institution, they will now launch their own loyalty rewards program, Bread Token or (BRD). This will be a digital asset built on Ethereum that users will be able to hold in their Bread wallets.

Token​ ​allocations
A maximum of 160,000,000 (160M) bread tokens will be issued, and will be priced at 900 BRD tokens per 1 Ethereum.

● 22M tokens will be retained by Bread to support future roadmap development, operations, and grow the Bread brand.

Bread tokens will bring various benefits to Bread customers. For instance, paying with Bread tokens will provide a large discount on service fees when buying or selling bitcoin or Ethereum through the app. Secondly, the more BRD held by an individual customer, the greater the perks, such as a dedicated support phone number, access to early pre sales of qualified ICOs, and exclusive invitations to events around the world. Additional premium services will be rolled out gradually.
