PR: Lightning Fast Stablecoin USDX Launches Token Sale

November 21, 2018 |

Lightning Fast Stablecoin USDX Launches Token Sale

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.

Stablecoins have been a hot topic in 2018, and many different companies are creating cryptocurrencies for P2P payments. The USDX Wallet payment system stands out from these overly complicated and undeveloped projects by delivering rapid and secure transactions with the ease of sending a text. Whether you are depositing money, organizing international money transfers, paying salaries, or making non-cash transactions, this digital payment system is a secure and reliable choice.

As a blockchain-based wallet, USDX Wallet guarantees multi-level security for all transactions and instant transfers of assets via a phone number. The native blockchain used by USDX is based on BitShares, and it allows 100,000 transactions per second. For reference, that is the speed of Visa and Mastercard — combined. Many of the pain points of crypto transfers are also solved by this innovative payment system, including cryptocurrency volatility, low transaction speeds, security issues related to private keys, and excessive fees, among many others.

Available at Google Play and the App Store, this free app features smooth navigation and slick design, making it a pleasure to use. Face ID and Touch ID features will soon be available for the wallet, making authorization even faster and smoother. Ease of use is coupled with security of use as USDX Wallet employs strong encryption algorithms to protect users’ private keys, which are necessary to access funds. Another security layer is two-factor authentication (2FA) performed via SMS codes or push notifications (depending on user preference). As the Whitepaper states, all USDX services are based on AWS and the Google Cloud platforms, which foster scalability, maintainability, and the overall security of the system. Security and stability are of the utmost importance to USDX Wallet and its currency owners.

The USDX token is a stablecoin pegged to the U.S. dollar at a 1:1 ratio via a smart contract. USDX is collateralized by the system’s core cryptocurrency, LHT, which refers to Lighthouse Blockchain Technology, the company behind the app. The total supply of LHT is 1B coins, which will be released gradually to the market. Only 5% of the supply will be issued in the first year, while another 5% will be locked on the blockchain to provide 200% collateralization. The benefit of withholding coins is encouraging confidence in LHT owners and potential owners that the value won’t suddenly evaporate if the market becomes flooded.

These tokens are available for purchase during the token sale, going on from November 1 to December 31, or until all the allotted coins are sold from this first pool. There are no private sales or presales, and the project has already received venture investment. Developers have set the stage for exchanges integration, and the listing is planned for January 2019. Future profits will come from business account fees. USDX tokens could be purchased via the native app with Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and a bunch of other altcoins. Significant bonuses can be earned for any purchases before the end of 2018.

● For a 35% bonus: Download the USDX Wallet app, register, and get 35% extra tokens on your first purchase.
● For a 25% bonus: Invite friends and get 25% back of their first purchase.
● For a 10% bonus: Get 10% more bonuses for second and all subsequent orders.

Unlike so many other companies in the industry, USDX Wallet prioritizes effortless crypto transfers. This is a universal payment system for everyone, from newbies to crypto pros. If you’re looking for an easy and effective way to transfer your crypto assets, USDX Wallet may be exactly the solution you’ve been looking for.

Bitmain’s New 7nm Antminer Goes on Sale on November 8

Bitmain Reveals 7nm Equipped Antminer Sale Begins Nov. 8

Mining rig manufacturer Bitmain Technologies has announced the company’s latest Antminers equipped with 7nm semiconductors will go on sale on Nov. 8. According to the China-based organization, Bitmain will release two new models called the Antminer S15 and the T15.

Bitmain Plans to Sell Its New Antminers This Week

Bitmain's New 7nm Antminer Goes on Sale on November 8Bitmain will soon be selling new Antminers equipped with 7nm semiconductor technology. The company published a statement on Tuesday, detailing that the two latest models, the S15 and the T15, will be available for purchase on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 9 a.m. EDT. News.Bitcoin.com reported on Bitmain’s next-generation ASIC BM1391 Finfet chip during the second week of September when Bitmain CEO Jihan Wu revealed the new technology. The 7nm chip was created by Bitmain and the world’s largest independent semiconductor foundry TSMC.

“We are officially announcing the release of our new 7nm miners which possess industry-leading hash rates designed to mine with the SHA256 algorithm,” Bitmain explained on Twitter.

Bitmain Claims Chip Energy Efficiency Ratio Will Be as Low as 42 Joules per Terahash

Bitmain's New 7nm Antminer Goes on Sale on November 8
Bitmain announced the sale on Twitter and Wechat on Nov. 6, 2018.

The company’s website has one preview photo of the machine, which looks far different than the previous Antminer series. At the moment the website overview, pricing, specifications, and photo gallery is unavailable for public viewing. However, the company’s announcement on Wechat explained that the S and T series are SHA256 miners that can mine bitcoin cash (BCH) and bitcoin core (BTC) with the mining capacity as low as 42 joules per terahash.

“The next-generation of chip integrates up to 1 billion transistors and is optimized algorithmically — With a unique circuit structure and low power technology, the chip energy efficiency ratio will be as low as 42 J/TH,” the Bitmain announcement explained on Wechat.

Of course, the difficulties of both the BTC and BCH chains coupled with the S and T series pricing will determine how profitable the new devices will be mining these cryptocurrencies. Further, Trump’s latest tariffs may affect prices for those who are importing Antminers to the U.S. There’s also a lot of competition that’s been announced over the past few months as a few other manufacturers are planning to launch next-generation machines. For instance, Canaan’s Avalon 911 will be powered by a 7nm semiconductor, and the firm claims it will perform at 18 terahashes per second (TH/s) and have a power consumption of 1440w.

According to the government, investors can now purchase the petro with a number of fiat currencies and cryptocurrencies. Delegates from China have reportedly purchased some with yuan.

Venezuela Starts Selling Petro

Venezuela Begins Public Sale of National Cryptocurrency PetroOn Monday, the Venezuelan government announced that the public can now purchase the country’s national cryptocurrency directly from the Superintendency of Cryptoassets and Related Activities (Sunacrip). Sunacrip is in charge of regulating all crypto-related activities in Venezuela.

The petro was originally backed by only oil. However, its latest whitepaper shows that the digital currency is now also backed by gold, iron, and diamond. The Venezuelan government-backed newspaper Correo del Orinoco wrote:

This Monday the sale of el petro cryptocurrency is successfully launched for all Venezuelans and those who want to make financial transactions digitally through this mechanism.

Tareck El Aissami.

Venezuela’s vice president of the economy, Tareck El Aissami, explained that the petro can currently be acquired with a number of foreign currencies and cryptocurrencies. Accepted fiat currencies include the dollar, yuan, and the euro, he elaborated, adding that accepted cryptocurrencies include BTC, ETH, and XEM.

Buyers can visit the Sunacrip headquarters to purchase the petro with cash. Purchasing with cryptocurrencies can also be done on the petro’s official website, El Aissami noted.

A number of Venezuelan government officials turned up to purchase the petro on Monday. Each was issued a petro certificate at the time of purchase. “Superintendent Joselit Ramírez described the day as a success,” El Aissami tweeted. Ramírez replaced Carlos Vargas as Venezuela’s Superintendent of Cryptoassets in June.

Google Suspends Petro Wallet App

At the time of this writing, the links to download petro wallets for Windows and Linux on the official petro website lead to pages that are “not found” on the website’s server. Only user and install guides are available.

Previously, there was also a petro wallet app on the Google Play store which showed over 5,000 installs and 275 reviews. However, El Aissami explained that “on Oct. 15, Google suspended the wallet,” claiming that the internet giant is checking the wallet’s crypto functionality before reactivating it, Que Pasa publication reported. At the time of this writing, the petro wallet app is no longer listed on the Google Play store.

Additionally, the Venezuelan government’s own block explorer for the petro currently shows a total of 304 blocks despite the whitepaper describing a blocktime of one block per minute.

More Petro Options Coming Nov. 5

The public sale of the petro was scheduled for Nov. 5. However, Ramirez explained that the launch was moved forward due to “the fluidity with which events developed and the support of President Nicolás Maduro,” El Universal quoted him.

On Thursday, El Aissami unveiled two more petro options which will be enabled on the Sunacrip website on Nov. 5: Petro Pago (pay) and Petro Ahorro (savings). Noting that he has been meeting with representatives of savings banks to discuss starting petro savings plans, he clarified:

We are in the purchasing stage [of the petro]. Next week will be the savings stage.

Chinese Delegates Bought Petro

“The delegation from the China Development Research Center attended the initial sale of el petro cryptocurrency and as a sign of confidence several of its members bought the Venezuelan digital currency” with yuan, the publication detailed. Rodríguez tweeted:

Thanks to our brothers from the People’s Republic of China … the first in line to buy petros in yuan.
