Aeternity (AE) that sports a “blockchain 3.0” platform had recently revealed their intention to launch aeternity Starfleet. It is a series of incubator and accelerator programs that will support the blockchain system in whole. The process also involves building a chain of investors, innovators and industry enthusiasts. Yanislov Mahalov, the founder of Aeternity (AE) had commented that the launch is “the culmination of months of extensive research and preparation and underlines our commitment to be the enablers of innovation, strengthening the already thriving blockchain community worldwide.” He went on to say that the incubator programs will speed up the adoption of blockchain technology worldwide.
Aeternity Starfleet will work collaboratively with Software University (SoftUni), an organization located in Sofia, Bulgaria. SoftUni works diligently on software development education as well as networking. According to Hristo Tenchev, the founder of Software University, it is perfect time to implement the blockchain-focused incubator program in the current ecosystem. From the initial stage itself, Aeternity Starfleet will support global projects by investing up to $250,000 and will give access to Starfleet co-working spaces. The first Starfleet program is expected to start from 11th June 2018 and the training process will continue for four weeks. After the program completes, each team will be presented with the opportunity to talk about their ideas and plans in front of an audience of investors, blockchain experts and thought leaders.
Upcoming Mainnet Launch
Messages aepp Utility widget
The developer’s team is focused at the moment on porting the apps to the Aeternity blockchain. Meanwhile, they have also incorporated a Utility widget in the Messages aepp. This will ease the way of accessing functionalities of other aepps. The user will be able to access the utility button on the right side of their input box. This button will open up other functionality options from other aepps to the users. They can extract information by clicking on one of the options and thus complete a task from another aepp. For instance, the Transfer aepp allows the user to send tokens to the person they were conversing with. The user does not need to find out the person in the address book or enter their address. The summary of the transaction is sent to the chat window and the user can check its status by simply referring to this part of the chat.
From the blog of Aeternity, “Two or more parties open a state channel. Each party enters the channel with a balance written onto the blockchain. The parties transact in the state channel. Their account balances are written onto the blockchain again at the closing of the channel and possibly periodically throughout making use of the channel. Every transaction has to be signed by all parties that are part of the channel.” The benefits of conducting transactions through the state channel are that they are completed almost instantly and there is no transaction charge. State channels are also essential in risk management.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not. The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above. In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map. Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells. BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle. Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance. One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess. That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS. These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there. While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.
What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?
In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount. There are several examples of this in our day to day lives. Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers. Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has. The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.
The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs. Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
