MGO Token Could Surge After New Payment API Release

Published

on

MGO

Although February delivered a brief glimmer of hope to crypto traders after BTC surged above 4,000, the euphoria was short-lived.  It appears as though the bear is here to stay for at least the foreseeable future.  Despite the challenging times, there are projects that continue to deliver in the face of adversity.  One very promising company that I have covered before is MobileGo (MGO).

Introduction to MGO Token

MGO is a smart token that could usher in a new era in the gaming industry.  The token’s purpose is to gamify the eSport platform and incentivize gamers for loyalty and participating through rewards.  The team at MobileGo continues to work on establishing strategic partnerships and alliances (such as with Xsolla), expanding its global reach, and making games available to everyone around the world.

The token has several inherent benefits.  For gamers, it will help facilitate peer-to-peer match play and decentralized tournaments, serving both as a match reward and an entrance fee.  Additionally, MGO token owners will have an opportunity to generate additional discounts good toward purchasing in-game content.

Game publishers and developers will also reap the benefits of the MGO token.  Game publishers have the option to be paid in MGO, which has several major advantages of traditional FIAT, including the speed of processing payment requests.

Team Just Released a New Payment API for Developers

One of the things I like most about MobileGo is its relentless pursuit of greatness.  The team continues to align with strong partners and develop enhancements to their platform.  And that is certainly the case after the release of its first open source and complete API.  This API can be utilized by game publishers in order to both accept and distribute payments in MGO tokens.  It can even be integrated directly into games so that MGO can be used as a direct payment method.  That is an absolutely huge development!  All of the code can be found at MobileGo’s official GitHub account.

This new open-source payment API will provide developers and gamers with more options, improved usability, and cost efficiency when using MGO as a payment method.  MobileGo is currently in discussions with several parties regarding the possibility of using the new payment API on their platforms.

Another interesting aspect is that MobileGo can provide developers with a custom API that can be used to increase the fee behind a transaction.  Developers can use that extra fee to fund a specific cause, such as a charity.  If this feature is utilized, a portion of the total transaction cost will be forwarded to the charity of choice.

Ethereum Network Fees Can Be Paid in MGO Tokens

A potential jackpot for MGO is that Ethereum network fees (GAS) can be paid in MGO tokens thanks to the new open-source payment API.  In order to best illustrate how the math works, an example is probably best.  If a gamer makes an in-game purchase totaling 100 MGO tokens, the fee comes out to be 1 MGO.  In this case, the developer would receive 99 MGO after the 1 token fee is paid.  If the gamer covers the fee, then the gamer would end up spending 101 MGO tokens and the developer would receive 100 tokens.

When comparing that cost to the traditional GAS cost of using Ethereum, it is a huge cost saving.  For one transaction it may not seem like a lot but it certainly adds up over time.  It’s another perfect example of why MGO is likely to gain significant adoption within the gaming community.

Just as a word of caution, it’s important to note that the examples of fees and payments presented here are dependent on the ETH network and do not reflect the current/previous/future situations.  They are used solely to provide a clear explanation of the API mechanism.

Increased Transparency Through Official GitHub

Due to the rapid speed at which MobileGo is developing and growing, the team has released its official GitHub.  This account will be used to increase the transparency of all the company’s projects.  Up to this point, the following projects can be found on the company’s GitHub:

  • Metamask Integration – For users with Metamask accounts and do not wish to add custom contracts, this application will show the MGO balance.
  • Payment API with standard ETH fee.
  • Payment APIs that change the fee from ETH to MGO for simplicity and usability.

As the team at MobileGo continues to develop new projects, users can expect additional developments to also be listed on the company’s GitHub.  A few examples of things to look forward to include:

  • eSports platform (built on top of the smart contract)
  • Integration of the Payment API with the MGO Store (coming soon)
  • Smart contract for decentralized matchmaking in tournaments

The above are just a few examples of what is expected in the near future.

Conclusion

MobileGo continues to be a shining example of what is possible in cryptocurrency.  Although the team is excelling at every turn, users should feel free to contribute any ideas they might have to the GitHub.  And in an effort to incentivize community activity, MobileGo expects to launch a bounty program that will reward contributors in the near future.  There is a famous African proverb “it takes a village to raise a child.”  Well, in this case, it takes a community to build something great and MobileGo is on the verge of doing just that.

META 1 Coin Trust Announces Commission to Study Global Persecution of Cryptocurrency Projects

Published

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…

GDA Capital in Conversation About the Future of Digital Assets at Global Family Office Summit

Published

on

GDA Capital organized the quarterly Global Family Office Summit this week. The event was held virtually with a number of technology leaders and high net worth investors who discussed issues such as education, trust and responsibility to give back. Among these were insightful conversations with Dubai-based Dalma Capital’s CEO Zachari Cefaratti, Holt Fintech Accelerator founder Brendan Hold Dunn, Global Data Sentinel CEO and White City Ventures Chairman of the Board Shahal Khan, and Elitium CEO Raoul Milhado, among others. Participants were also given access to off-market opportunities to invest in novel technologies.

Will Bartlett, GDA Capital’s Director of Research, headlined the event by focusing on tech in the modern economy, and identifying six sectors where new technologies can make a lasting impact: robotics, space, biotech, machine learning, quantum computing, and blockchain. In the context of blockchain, he discussed how digital assets are a hedge against traditional financial markets. “Cryptocurrencies have no exposure to stock market returns, macroeconomic factors, or returns of currencies and commodities,” Bartlett said.

More so, Bartlett believes that new models for digital assets such as DigitalBits’ branded stablecoins are key to the development of the field. These currencies replace traditional rewards and loyalty point systems that are commonly used by household brands by porting them to the blockchain. Meanwhile, they rely on brand…

Chainwire Launches Blockchain-Focused Automated Press Release Distribution Service

Published

on

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…
