The North American Bitcoin Conference Is A Platform From Which CLOUT Could Take Off

Published

on

Clout ICO

Thousands of companies applied to sponsor and subsequently set up a booth and what will almost certainly prove to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest, bitcoin and blockchain events of the year – the North American Bitcoin Conference Miami Beach, set to take place January 18 & 19, 2018.

Against a backdrop of all-time high interest in the potential of blockchain technology to change the way the world works, attendance is expected to reach similarly all-time high levels and – likely for the first time – the crowd of attendees won’t just be crypto enthusiasts.

This is a mainstream space now.

It’s no surprise, then, that the above mentioned large number of companies wanted to set up and have the opportunity to show the world what they are each working on and where their respective offerings fit into the global economy. For those with strong offerings, the upcoming Bitcoin Conference could be a game changer.

One company that managed to beat out the competition and now has a chance to use the conference a platform from which to take off is CLOUT.

Some readers might already be familiar with the guy who founded CLOUT – Sean Kirtz. For anyone that’s not, he’s the guy behind Bitcoin Day Traders, a leading social cryptocurrency enthusiast community, and it was his experience as part of this community that led him to found CLOUT. Basically, members wanted reliable, regular and usable knowledge relating to the blockchain and cryptocurrency spaces – but they couldn’t find it.

From a media perspective, the space was so fragmented, or certain outlets had conflicts of interest that led to bias, that any information that was available couldn’t be relied upon to (at that time) make solid trading decisions.

For Kirtz and his community, CLOUT was the answer.

The platform is currently being developed having just sold out an ICO presale and it’s designed as a network across which users can create, share and publish content relating to the cryptocurrency and blockchain spaces.

And here’s the smart bit – the platform is set up to incentivize and reward quality and reliability using a proprietary token called CLC. Users can reward others in CLC if they think that a bit of content is good and also receive CLC for sharing quality content.

This means that, without the input of a third party (which might have a vested interest in a particular piece of content, for example), the quality information rises to the top of the pile organically, based on the wisdom of the crowd.

It’s a great idea and it’s one that some of the industry’s biggest names are putting their weight behind – Toni Lane Casserly of Cointelegraph fame and Henry Wang, Founder and President of International Blockchain Application Federation (IBAF), to name just two of many instantly recognizable pioneers in this space.

So the event takes place mid-January and things will move pretty fast once Miami shuts its doors and the CLOUT booth packs away. The company’s tokens will list on big-hitter exchange HitBTC on February 1, followed closely by Coinbene, a leading Asian exchange, on February 15.

If all runs smoothly and, with a team like the one behind CLOUT, there’s no reason to suggest anything otherwise, especially given the recent successful funding, the company will launch a public Beta of the CLOUT platform on March 31, 2018.

Bottom line is this: The Miami conference is going to be an inflection point for many of the companies in attendance and that’s why the demand to have a presence there was so strong. CLOUT is one of a handful of companies that made the cut and there’s a good chance that this is just the beginning of an extended period of growth for both the company and its platform.

We’re going to be watching this one closely.

Bitcoin Casinos

Ever since the creation of the first sport games, people started enjoying the betting process. As the sports grew more popular around the world, so did the betting community and other than the physical betting shops, online sportsbooks have also started to emerge. Around 5 years ago the crypto gambling industry also made strides to join the fun and Bitcoin Casino started pouring its resources into providing proper sportsbook experience for their communities of players. For several years the things were steady and the concept of Bitcoin Betting was growing exponentially. Although recent events have significantly halted the progress of sports and betting, the new alternative started gaining traction in the gambling world, and that alternative was the Esport Betting.

Bitcoin has already brought our world some of the most incredible innovation we have seen, but the best is yet to come.

It has become ever more transparent that humans today are living in fear. If nothing else, 2020 has brought the tidal wave of anxiety and distrust that many live in the shadow of, to a terrifying apex. We are all just waiting for the crash. While some flock to literature, or social media, or their favored news outlet, others flock to exchanges. Using platforms like the newbie friendly Bitvavo to place their bets on the future, on what could be, and what already largely is.

AAX Crypto Exchange Announces Massive Growth Numbers in August

AAX Exchange

As the crypto market continues to surge, new traders continue to enter the market on a daily basis.  One of the first questions that new traders have is where should they trade crypto.  While there are countless options for buying and selling digital assets, traders need to exercise extreme caution and perform due diligence to avoid scam exchanges as well as places that have limited or no volume.  While the main platforms such as Coinbase, Binance, and Bittrex will always have significant volume, their fees are known to be on the expensive side.  AAX, a next-generation cryptocurrency exchange with the lowest futures fees in the world, represents a compelling alternative that traders should consider.

Growth Announcement

A few of the most important issues to consider when deciding whether to use an exchange are the number of users and the volume.  On August 7, AAX announced that in a little over two weeks, the exchange doubled its user base bringing the grand total of registered users to over 200,000.  At this rate, AAX may surpass the million mark later this year which would be an incredible achievement and is most certainly due to a variety of factors including extremely low fees and revolutionary technology.

Institutional-Grade Exchange

When AAX decided to build its platform, it set out to meet the demands of both institutional and retail investors.  In order to achieve that goal, the exchange operates at the highest possible…
