Boca Raton, Florida, 27th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

Collaborating with Other Cryptocurrencies, META 1 Tackles Injustice and Human Rights 

META 1 Coin Trust has announced plans to identify, research and document instances of governmental overreach in cryptocurrency cases globally, as part of its ongoing efforts to advance human rights and individual freedom. 

According to Robert P. Dunlap, Executive Trustee of META 1 Coin Trust, “The malicious attacks on crypto projects globally by overzealous government agencies must be documented and publicized to protect the individual liberties of META 1 Coin holders, as well as issuers and holders of other cryptocurrencies.” He added, “The decentralized, non-jurisdictional reality of crypto has left government agencies often unable to fully litigate cases and the general public should not have to continue suffering due to excessive overreach as agencies clamor to save face.”

META 1 Coin Trust is led by Robert P. Dunlap and Nicole Bowdler, who are both committed to pushing back against unimpeded global persecution of cryptocurrencies. By calling attention to years of organized efforts by government agencies to specifically target cryptocurrency projects, their hope is that the public will see and demand an end to these unjust violations of individual liberty. 

Specific grievances which motivated this initiative include grave concerns over government agencies’ obstruction of individuals’ livelihoods, defamation of character, and libelous false accusations which could tarnish the names of individuals for years to come, long after legal actions…

VERTEX EXCHANGE INTRODUCES GLOBAL TRADING PLATFORM TO HELP CRYPTO COMMUNITIES SELL TOKENS AT ALL TIME HIGH PRICES

Published

on

Hong Kong, October 20, 2020 – Vertex Exchange has announced that its global community-oriented trading platform will be officially launched on October 20, 2020. 

Vertex Exchange aims to be the leading global trading platform that merges all altcoin communities from around the world to form one main crypto community trading with only one native token of its kind – the Vertex Token (VTX). 

Vertex Exchange is built with a mission to merge and unite global altcoin crypto communities and allow users to monetize approved ERC20 tokens by swapping them to VTX at their respective ATH (All Time High) prices, then selling them via a unique trading system that seeks to ensure price stability and liquidity. Since all crypto tokens in various markets have one thing in common, that they are tradable as they have monetary value, the concept of Vertex Exchange was first mooted to allow crypto communities to work together by swapping tokens and performing trades on one unified platform. 

The crypto market is well perceived to be highly volatile. It is not unusual that with every peak price of a crypto token, comes a huge down. To date, many token prices have slumped to a fraction of their peak prices. To help token holders recover their losses, Vertex Exchange’s unique trading mechanism will bring about a new breakthrough for all global crypto communities, allowing token owners…

Chainwire Launches Blockchain-Focused Automated Press Release Distribution Service

Published

TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…
