PR: Essentia to Become First Blockchain Based Solution from Finnish Government Through Collaboration with MTK

Essentia to Become First Blockchain Based Solution from Finnish Government Through Collaboration with MTK

Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

It hasn’t been long since we offered the Dutch government a blockchain based solution for the border control issue, as we believe that introducing real world use cases is the way towards mainstream adoption of blockchain technology.

In March 2018, Essentia attended four meetings with representatives of the Finnish MTK organization, discussing possible ways of utilizing the Essentia framework.

As a result, after a month of brainstorming and discussions, it was agreed that Essentia would become the first blockchain startup to help the Finnish organization in its key objective of reducing the unemployment rate.

The Central Union of Agricultural Producers and Forest Owners (MTK) has announced its readiness to become Finland’s first organization to launch a blockchain based e-government solution.

“In blockchain, we see a number of features which could lend themselves well to the needs of entrepreneurs and citizens in the countryside as well as in the cities,” — MTK’s director of business development Marko Mäki-Hakola.

Combining with the ToitaSuomesta.fi employment service developed by CoReorient Oy, Essentia will be used by employment offices, employers and suchlike as a platform for managed employment in the local community.

There are many ways in which Essentia could be useful for MTK. Let us go through all of them.

First of all, any worker can save certificates of their performed jobs to the Essentia platform and allow their future employers and employment office to view these. This way we can ensure easier and safer cooperation. The employer can view and also add a job certificate(s) even if they are not a user of the ToitaSuomesta work mediation service. This option grants security and is actually a real time-saver both for employers and employees. Last but not least, employment offices can view the progress of the employee across all work mediation services and confirm that he/she fulfills benefits criteria.

From now on it won’t be necessary to share an individual’s entire job records between services and there will also be no need for a new database at the employment office.

MTK, whose members hail from various regional and local organizations, believe that this is only the start of real life testing for MTK’s main interest lies in other areas. One of them is managing and sharing machine-generated data from tractors, dairy, and other equipment. They are also tracking production chains, for example, forest side products from the owner to the refinery, or end-user land registries that will no longer need field sizes regularly updated; the future possibilities for blockchain technology are endless.

The Essentia framework provides the much-needed security in accessing sensitive data, as well as granting full control of the user’s private information and their digital identity in general.

We look forward to working together with the Finnish organization and moving a step closer to the idea we believe in. This is not the end, though, as we will continue searching for the best ways to utilize blockchain technology and Essentia in particular in various spheres of our day-to-day life.

Stay tuned for more information concerning the pilot implementation!

Bitcoin Cash Smashes Through $1,000 USD

Bitcoin Cash Smashes Through $  1,000 USD

Bitcoin cash (BCH) is now trading at $ 1,000 USD, returning the price to levels not seen since late March of this year. Analysts have attributed the BCH spike to after-tax-season liquidity, strong volume, and a passionate and active community supporting the project.

Bitcoin Cash Smashes Through $ 1,000

According News.Bitcoin.com market analyst Samuel Haig, “The price of Bitcoin Cash has rallied to test levels above $ 1,000 for the first time since March. The move comprises a gain of more than 75% when measuring from early April’s low of approximately $ 610. With BCH hovering at approximately $ 1,050, the markets are approaching the 23.6% fibonacci retracement area when measuring from the all-time.”

“When looking at the BCH/BTC markets,” he detailed, “one can see that Bitcoin Cash has begun to make significant gains over bitcoin. The BCH/BTC markets recently broke above, and then bounced off a broken a major descending trendline, signaling that BCH’s gains over BTC may continue in the short term. The BCH/BTC markets are also testing the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement area when measuring from the major resistance area of 0.25 BTC.”

BCH Garners Mainstream Attention

Days ago, CNBC’s Brian Kelly, of the popular financial news program Fast Money, made his case for an all-out buy of exactly one cryptocurrency, bitcoin cash. Describing his recommendation as “a bit controversial,” Mr. Kelly stood before a monitor to better flesh out his reasoning.

He acknowledged how bitcoin core and bitcoin cash often trade together, following one another up and down. He described BCH as being in the Monty Python Zone. Famously, its skits often portrayed characters who simply refused to give up even when it was obvious to everyone else they should. “Bitcoin Cash has been left for dead,” Mr. Kelly insisted. “It’s gotten absolutely crushed, so maybe it’s mostly dead but it’s not dead yet!”

Bitcoin Cash Smashes to $  1,000 USD

While many traders recoiled in fear as the cryptocurrency crash of 2018 drove down prices, smart money was waiting on the sidelines for cheap prices on high performing markets. After watching BCH plummet by roughly 75% during the early months of 2018, many large buyers evidently began to accumulate. “We’ve got a potential breakout coming. We’ve got increasing volume,” Mr. Kelly hurriedly explained.

“Look at where we are on the charts,” he insisted, pointing to a mountainous graph. He urged that the price of $ 790 USD for the decentralized currency, at the time, was moving from a support indicator to an all-out resistance level. In the shorter term, he showed how BCH volumes were spiking, indicating “something might be changing here.” Asked about the broader controversies about which was the real bitcoin, core or cash, Mr. Kelly said he prefers the bottom line: buy low, sell high. He also said in his trading he hadn’t seen problems with liquidity, and that he’d be “buying the dip” on recent FUD news such as the New York Attorney General querying crypto exchanges.

Bullish Momentum Shift

Bitcoin cash started to rumble Wednesday, the 17th, when it gained more than 10% in 24 hours – placing it among the top-performing markets. In the days following, BCH continued to gain momentum, with Coinmarketcap estimating that BCH has gained in value by over 37% in just 7 days.

Analysts said a combination of factors influenced its overall breakout. One was the US taxpayer season coming to an end even after its Internal Revenue Service allowed an extra day due to computer problems. Many in the ecosystem believed the incredible gains of last year triggered a capital gains tax like never before, and a great many US enthusiasts were selling off their holdings to pay.

Bitcoin Cash Smashes to $  1,000 USD

And while gurus such as Tom Lee of Fundstrat predicted after the tax season bitcoin core (BTC) prices would increase, it appears BCH is taking that to heart. 

For BCH proponents, its eventual rise in price isn’t that much of a shock. They maintain Bitcoin Cash’s minuscule transaction fees, super quick confirmations, and steady network make it an obvious choice for both average investors and for businesses. In fact, as bitcoin core has seen a drop in businesses accepting it, this could be the right opportunity for BCH to fill that vacuum.

Bitcoin Cash Fills a Vacuum 

Bitcoin Cash started to rumble Wednesday, the 17th, when it gained more than 10% in 24 hours – placing it among the top performing markets. In the days following, BCH continued to gain momentum, gaining a further 26% between April 18th and April 20th.

And while gurus such as Tom Lee of Fundstrat predicted after the tax season bitcoin core (BTC) prices would increase, it appears BCH is taking that to heart. Both BTC and ethereum were up as well, but still in single digits as of this writing.

For BCH proponents, its eventual rise in price isn’t that much of a shock. They maintain Bitcoin Cash’s miniscule transaction fees, super quick confirmations, and steady network make it an obvious choice for both average investors and for businesses.
