TopiaCoin is in the midst of its pre-sale. This sale will run until the Token Generation Event and is open to qualified accredited investors. There are a number of things that we like about TopiaCoin and why accredited investors should consider participating.

Topia Technology

First off, a little background on the company behind all of this. Topia Technology develops digital data security, integrity, and privacy products for military and highly regulated enterprise applications. Topia Technology is the only enterprise security platform providing triple-layer encryption and separation end-to-end, protecting against brute force attacks and more innovative security threats. It has offered unparalleled security, flexibility, and performance for US government agencies such as the Air Force, Army, FAA, TSA and other enterprises that have required protection coupled with strict performance metrics.

Topia Technology recognizes the need to securely share and electronically transfer a class of sensitive data such as medical records, contracts, tax records, wills, voting ballots, tickets, software, and images, among others. The company is now combining the blockchain and peer-to-peer data transfer protocols with the security of Secrata, its premier enterprise data security technology, to create a secure distributed file sharing system (SDFS). The Network will allow users to securely share Digital Assets as files or pieces of a file with the confidence of a cryptographically verified record of all transactions.

In connection with the Network, the Company is sponsoring an issuance and release of Tokens during the Token Generation Event. The Tokens will allow, among other things, holders to transact on the Network using the application programming interfaces (APIs), programming libraries, and protocols developed by the Company. TopiaCoin will be the only means of payment on the SDFS Network.

SAFT

Topia, in partnership with law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, is committed to protecting its investors and staying current with SEC regulations. Together, they have structured TopiaCoin as a security that if offered through a Simple Agreement for Future Tokens (SAFT). To understand how a SAFT works, it goes like this:

  • The developer of a token-based decentralized network enters into a written agreement, called a SAFT, with accredited investors. The SAFT calls for investors to pay money to the developer in exchange for a right to tokens once the network is completed.
  • The developer uses the money to develop the network.
  • Once the network’s basic functionality exists, the developer creates the tokens and delivers them to the investors, who can sell tokens to the public on the open market to realize their profit.

For all purchases of TopiaCoin, 50% of the purchased tokens will vest immediately upon completion of the Token Generation Event. The remaining 50% of the Tokens will vest linearly according to the vesting period, which comprises a 6-month vesting period and a 12 month vesting period.

The maximum token supply possible is approximately 300,000,000 Tokens. Under the SAFT, inclusive of all rounds, investors will have the opportunity to purchase up to 240,000,000 Tokens. The Company will hold 20% of the total supply of tokens based on the number of tokens sold, up to approximately 60,000,000.

During the ICO, qualified investors will have the opportunity to purchase up to 210,000,000 Tokens for future delivery.

The Company will use the proceeds for the following purposes:

  • 65% for development of the network
  • 30% for sales, marketing and token community development
  • 5% for special projects

It is currently anticipated that the Company will develop the Tokens and the Network by the second quarter of 2019.

Topia Team

We see Topia completing its roadmap and fulfilling its vision because of the team involved. It’s important to remember that Topia Technology has been around for over 15 years. They know the security and encryption space having offered unparalleled security, flexibility, and performance for US government agencies such as the Air Force, Army, FAA, TSA and other enterprises that have required protection coupled with strict performance metrics.

In addition, the board of advisors has a number of notable names, including Stan Larimer. Larimer is the co-founder of BitShares, a platform blockchain technology, as well as president and co-founder of Cryptonomex, a software development services company providing blockchains and related technology. He said upon joining Topia:

“Today, there is no real data security for blockchain-based applications and there is a huge need in the marketplace for a security layer. TopiaCoin will be the first to market with military-grade security and this will bring great value to the blockchain and BitShares community. I am excited to be involved with Topia Technology, a well-established company that is really going to make a world of difference in the future of blockchain through the introduction of TopiaCoin.”

Bottom line

We see TopiaCoin as a unique opportunity for accredited investors. The best part is that accredited investors can get involved for as little as $10,000 in ETH, BTC, BTS or USD. For more information, check out the TopiaCoin Website, White Paper, Medium, Twitter, and Telegram.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

Can Crypto Credit Cards Disrupt the Fight Against Financial Crime?

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
