In less than ten years, the Crypto-Economy will represent more than USD 10 Trillion. While people talk about BitCoins, this crypto-currency is just one piece of the puzzle. The number of cryptocurrencies available over the internet as of 27 November 2017 is over 1’324 and growing. A new cryptocurrency can be created at any time. By market capitalization, Bitcoin is currently the largest blockchain network, followed by Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple and Litecoin. This new crypto-economy is growing so fast that more and more people wish to use crypto-currency to manage theirs transactions. With such potential, a visionary team created Crypterium, the first true Cryptobank in the world. It is a truly global project, completely decentralized and taking its foundations in the heart of the crypto-economy. Here is how.
Crypto-currency: the evolution of money
Traditional banks go bankrupt, money devaluates from one day to another, bank transferts contains taxes, rates and sometimes prohibitive costs… All this brings the financial systems to evolve and crypto-currencies became an answer to the decadence of the traditional bank system. A cryptocurrency is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange that uses cryptography to secure its transactions, to control the creation of additional units, and to verify the transfer of assets. Cryptocurrencies are classified as a subset of digital currencies and are also classified as a subset of alternative currencies and virtual currencies. Bitcoin, created in 2009, was the first decentralized cryptocurrency. Since then, numerous cryptocurrencies have been created. The decentralized control is related to the use of bitcoin’s blockchain transaction database in the role of a distributed ledger.
Crypterium, the first truly Cryptobank in the world.
Crypterium bases its online business on 4 main pillars:
- Mobile Cryptobank
- Cryptocurrency acquiring
- Open-API Platform
- Blockchain based loans
Mobile payments are already a reality. By using your smartphone or smartwatch, you can already make payments without real money or credit cards. Crypterium’s team has a strong long-term experience on mobile payments and have developed a full solution in terms of mobile crypto bank. Crypto payments are already a reality in millions of stores around the world and Crypterium will facilitate them. Merchants can receive ﬁat money even if payment is made in cryptocurrency. This means that almost any store, online e-commerce business could be part of the program. Commissions are the lowest possible (only 0.5%) compared to credit cards or even PayPal.
The Crypterium open-API is a great tool made available for IT developers around the world. It is a banking platform that enables developer solutions for a decentralized economy. The API project allows a modular structure enabling easy implementation for different softwares. It proposes an advanced payment and processing technologies, fine-tuned
from more than 3 years of development testing. It also enables an unified AppStore for retail cryptocurrency solutions
with a Crypterium products audience. An advanced “sandbox” is available in order to allow early stage development and debugging software. There is also an opportunity to deploy developed software and services on a decentralized Crypterium server infrastructure.
Last but not least, it is worth mention Crypterium initiative to develop a technology of a blockchain based credit system. Credit subtoken gives the opportunity to create a full-fledged banking structure and interest interactions based on blockchain. Credit subtoken is a new standard of cryptocredit based on the blockchain system. Owners of credit subtokens receive income much higher than the average market and a decentralized storage of the reputation of borrowers in smart contracts allows a stronger guarantee.
Crypterium ICO, an ambitious challenge truly possible
First of all, do you know what is an ICO? These three letters are for “Initial Coin Offer”. Initial coin offering (ICO) is a means of crowdfunding via use of cryptocurrency, which can be a source of capital for startup companies. In an ICO, a percentage of the newly issued cryptocurrency is sold to investors in exchange for legal tender or other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum.
Crypterium launched its token sale for CRPT Token ownership Oct. 31. The sale will remain open until Jan. 12 with an option for early termination upon the successful raise of $47 million. The price of a CRPT Token has been set at 0.0001 BTC with a technical limit of 300 million tokens. Unsold tokens will be destroyed. Crypterium is offering to potential users of its Crytpobank platform to right to pre-purchase its own CRPT tokens through an ICO event that commenced on the 31st October 2017 in advance of their use within the Crypterium cryptocurrency bank. Crypterium allow for pre-payment up to 210 000 000 CRPT Tokens at the initial market value of 0.0001 Bitcoin per CRPT. Upon launch, a single CRPT Token is valued at 0.0001 BTC (due to the USD equivalent value of a single Bitcoin this is a more convenient measurement of value). For equivalent prices in other cryptocurrencies, the following exchanges will be used; Kraken, Bitstamp, Bitfinex and Poloniex.
According to what Crypterium says in one of its white papers, providing cryptocurrencies to mainstream everyday users will require dedicated crypto banking services. Only once a person is able to use cryptocurrency in the same way that they use any other currency, will all cryptocurrencies benefits become a reality.
