A Blockchain Project that is Finally Solving the Issues that Payment Institutions Have Been Hiding for Years




When a buyer makes any type of financial transaction, they are interacting with a complex web of institutions, trusted 3rd parties, and payment gateways in order for their payment to be processed. It may seem like it takes a while for an ACH payment to be processed (3-5 days), but this is nothing compared to the 60-90 days that some businesses must wait in order to get their payments. Aside from the significant wait times of these transactions, these payments face exorbitant transaction fees, which can be upwards of 30% for application developers.

With all of these downsides, it’s a wonder why people still use these systems, and the reality is that 3rd party institutions have an effective monopoly on processing these payments. Only banks and specific payment processing companies like PayPal can deal with these transactions and as such, there’s limited competition leading to our problem: high fees and lengthy payment cycles.

The fees and the time requirement are a result of the complexities present in the status quo, which require large amounts of overhead and a variety of human forms and authentications. While these systems might have been the best alternative a decade ago, now we are equipped with better solutions through decentralized architectures.

Efficiency through Decentralization

Decentralization delegates the authority to authenticate transactions to the participants. This type of system gives power to the individual actors and creates an infrastructure that requires lower overhead as it grows. Decentralization presents a promising answer to these inefficiencies, however, there still remains an issue with integrating them into the centralized infrastructure we are surrounded with.


OPEN Platform is a blockchain-agnostic architecture built to put a decentralized form of payment processing in the hands of the applications and developers that need it the most. Unlike the other cryptocurrency payment methods that still rely on centralized payment gateways, OPEN utilizes a payment platform that is completely decentralized.

This provides a more efficient form of interaction, unique from the centralized payment gateways that the majority of other crypto-payment processors use.

The OPEN Solution utilizes a novel architecture that enables developers to set-up decentralized payment gateways for in-app purchases in minutes and takes advantage of the speed and efficiency of a decentralized system. With OPEN Platform, transaction fees are practically eliminated and liquidity is at the hands of the developer.

Targeting Application Developers

Compromised of a team of respected app developers and founders with millions of downloads under their belts, and through their experiences in mobile app development, the OPEN team has seen first hand the high transaction fees and long payment delays that plague the industry.

It is for this reason that the OPEN solution has been targeted for applications, but that is only the start of what this decentralized payment gateway system can do.

Looking to the future

Adoption from the grass roots: The reason its just not happening yet!





As someone who has been extremely involved in the cryptocurrency space the past 2 years, and 6 as an investor I want to point some things out.

  1. The whole space is full of egomaniacs

When I first got involved as an investor in 2013 buying 2.5 BTC I thought very little of where it could go. It was a small tight group of believers back then. As the space evolved you found there were more and more Craig Wright’s. What I mean by that is there were tons of people with massive egos who did not care what others said. It was okay before 2016-2017 as I wasn’t so closely following what was going on.

Once I got involved in the space more quit my job and went deep into the space I noticed something. I saw a tom of egomaniacs pretending they really knew what they were talking about, I saw people acting like they knew everything about everything and I saw CEOs who had little to no hope other than big talk and hopium.

In my opinion, we need more humble leaders in the space, people who truly care about it more than making as much money from people as they can. People who aren’t showing off watches during a hash war that ended with zero winners, and led us into the longest crypto winter…

The Impact of SEC Regulation and the Crypto Bear Market on Ethereum




Way back in June 2017, it was beginning to look inevitable that the flippening would occur and Ethereum would take over the top spot of cryptocurrency market caps. With smart contract capabilities and an order of magnitude more potential applications than Bitcoin, everybody was keen to jump on the Ethereum bandwagon.

Of course, a lot has changed since then.

The speculation-fueled bull run that culminated at all-time highs in late 2017 for Bitcoin and January 2018 for altcoins was unsustainable. Talk of a global paradigm shift appears laughably premature in hindsight.

Today, prices have collapsed across the entire market, with Ethereum itself breaking below $100 last December after all-time highs of $1.4k just 11 months prior. Although a mini-recovery has ensued in early 2019, the situation continues to look bleak and the reputation of cryptocurrencies for the general public is still far from stellar.

Prominent blockchain expert Peter Du, the founder of Du Capital, recently explained the crux of the problem, saying:

“Cryptocurrencies, which were once the new darling and dream of investors have now taken a backseat, given the current crypto blizzard. To be sure, maintaining hundreds of billions of dollars in valuations supported by unsecured coin issuance was…

Bexplus Trader Expert Sharing: Which Investment in Bitcoin can Make Profits?




At this time last year, Bitcoin was reaching its all-time high price. However, the whole year past, its price declined by 80% since then. BTC speculators or investors don’t seem to be getting tired of its “disruptive” price falling. And a lot of people that missed out on the late 2017 and early 2018 price hike, jump in the crypto world, expecting to make quite a fortune when it hits its former levels. But the story just goes the opposite way. So is it possible to profit from BTC investment? In the following part, we will explore 3 types of profitable BTC investment.

Measure 3 Common Types of BTC Investment

  1. Invest in BTC Spot and Wait for Appreciation

Bitcoin spot trade might be the first transaction type that most investors will opt for when they just entered the cryptocurrency area. Investors can directly buy BTC with fiat currencies. The only way to earn money with BTC spot is waiting for its price rising. Unless you are a BTC believer and willing to wait for its appreciation in several years, you should turn to another type of investment.

  1. Exchange BTC to USDT and Earn the Spread

USDT is the cryptocurrency version of US dollar and also considered as a stable cryptocurrency. Generally speaking, when the BTC, as well as other cryptocurrencies, drop, USDT may perform…
