Japanese Crypto Exchange bitFlyer blockchain arm starts offering consultancy services to new businesses in the blockchain space. 

One of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in Japan, bitFlyer just announced that its blockchain arm named bitFlyer Blockchain will offer consultancy services to businesses around the world built around blockchain technology. bitFlyer is also one of the most prominent Bitcoin brokers in the world. 

bitFlyer already offers services like BaaS, Joint Business, Miyabi Core, and RegTech. With the launch of its latest consultancy service, it aims to help new blockchain businesses with their task management requirements. As of now, bitFlyer Blockchain is targeting new companies in sectors like finance, manufacturing, technology, real estate, and public sectors. 

In the press release, bitFlyer noted, “We do not know how to launch a business using blockchain, we do not know the effect of introduction, there are no blockchain experts, the significance of using the blockchain instead of general database “Why Blockchain?” Many companies face challenges such as in-depth discussions.

As a virtual currency exchange company, we have a track record of operating for over 6 years. In addition, we have expertise in cryptography, which was originally developed from 0 for the blockchain algorithm, and a domestic top-class blockchain patent.”

Based on these backgrounds, in addition to the segments shown in Figures 1 to 4 below, experienced blockchain consultants have developed from the perspective of the customer to solve the business problems of the customer. As a new segment, we have started to provide consulting services.

The firm had been receiving many requests from major corporations regarding Security Token Offerings (STO), building transparent supply chains, and the usage of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT). It is being speculated the recently launched consultancy services will help to address such inquiries.

How Tony Delgado Contributed to Puerto Rico

During the 2018 hurricane Maria, it was clear that Puerto Rico needs help from people from all around the United States. It was the time when an extra bottle of water or another package of food meant another saved life for people who were on the island at the time.

Many different areas were covered with the programs, and people were able to learn about coding, blockchain technology, AI, digital marketing, and entrepreneurship, among many other subjects that are part of the online business. Every single person who attended the camp was involved in the corporate building of the Puerto Rican online market.

Jack Dorsey Starts $1 Billion Fund to Fight the COVID-19 Pandemic

As per the recent reports, Twitter CEO and Square founder, Jack Dorsey has opened a new initiative named Start Small LLC and has funded it with $1 Billion which is approximately 28% of his wealth. Jack confirmed via twitter that the funds raised through this initiative will be used to support the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. He clarified that once the crisis is over, the remaining funds will be directed towards girl’s health, education, and universal basic income (UBI) initiatives. 

Explaining his inclination towards UBI and girl’s education, Jack mentioned, “Why UBI and girl’s health and education? I believe they represent the best long-term solutions to the existential problems facing the world. UBI is a great idea needing experimentation. Girl’s health and education is critical to balance”

While assuring that the funding will be completely transparent, Jack added that this initiative is the best long-term solution to the existential problems facing the world.

Talking about Start Small LLC, he clarified that all grants will be made from the foundation directly to the beneficiary organization. Furthermore, all financial transactions in this regard including sales and grants will be available publicly through a tracking sheet. 

Interestingly, Jack has extracted the entire funding amount from Square. He reasoned that he owns a lot more of Square than he does of Twitter. Hence it makes more sense to draw the funds from his Square shares. However, he acknowledged the fact that this initiative will benefit both Square and Twitter in the long run. He stated, “The impact this money will have should benefit both companies over the long-term because it’s helping the people we want to serve.”

Dorsey’s support for Bitcoin is well-known. BTC has been one of the most prominent revenue generators for Square’s CashApp. He recently offered the USE OF Square’s CashApp to distribute the U.S. stimulus package. 

We hope Jack’s initiative to donate and fund the fight against COVID-19 will be an example for others to come up and do their bit.

24 February 2020: Animoca Brands is thrilled to announce that the official crate sale for F1® Delta Time starts on 25 February 2020. Users will be able to buy crates containing officially licensed Formula 1® (F1®) non-fungible tokens (NFTs) of drivers, driver gear, and tyres for use in the game F1® Delta Time. See www.F1DeltaTime.com for details of the crate sale.

Crates in F1® Delta Time are ERC-20 tokens and are available in 4 tiers: Common, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. Purchases can be made using cryptocurrencies such as ETH, DAI, OST, USDC, USDT, and others. Players can choose to open their crates, sell them to other players, or hold on to them for future use. Each tier of crates has a limited supply:

  • Common crates: 2,500
  • Rare crates: 2,000
  • Epic crates: 1,500
  • Legendary crates: 500

Each crate contains 5 NFTs, including race cars, drivers, car components, driver gear, or tyres. The contents of crates are random, with cars and drivers being the rarest to obtain.

In F1® Delta Time there are 5 rarity levels for NFTs: Apex, Legendary, Epic, Rare, and Common, with Apex being the most scarce. The rarity levels of the NFTs in each crate are determined based on the tier of the crate:

  • Common crates: 1 Rare and 4 Common NFTs

  • Epic crates: 3 Common, 1 Rare, and 1 Epic NFTs
  • Legendary crates: 3 Common, 1 Rare, and 1 Legendary NFTs

  • Rare crate: 2 car tickets

The Four Guardians Apex cars will be unlocked upon reaching crate purchase milestones, with the first race car being made available once 2,000 crates are sold, the second car after 4,000 crates are sold, and the third after all 6,500 crates are sold.

A lucky draw will be conducted to determine the winner of each car. The more car tickets a player has, the higher the chance to win one of the Four Guardians Apex cars.

Staking car NFTs to generate in-game currency
In F1® Delta Time, cars are NFTs and will have the ability to generate REV through “staking”, with rarer cars generating higher amounts of REV. REV is an ERC-20 token and the primary in-game currency in F1® Delta Time.

When you choose to stake your car, you temporarily transfer ownership to F1® Delta Time and lose the ability to use, race or trade that car, but you will earn REV based on the period of time that your car is staked.
