Walmart Enters Blockchain Ecosystem with Walmart Leaf (WAL)

One billion tokens readily available for purchase.

ARKANSAS– Walmart Inc. is pleased to announce the development of a new blockchain service WalmartLeaf.com, the decentralized financial asset management network, to realize the world’s most reliable retail money transfer system and the ability to finalize transactions in less than 2 seconds. Suppliers will transition ecommerce payments from cash to digital on the Ethereum network in the form of ERC20 Tokens. By combining WalmartLabs payments business expertise with advanced blockchain technology implemented on the WalmartProjects platform, the aim is to offer a new retail payment network service from fiscal year 2019 compatible with IoT and other new technologies.

Blockchain has been attracting attention in the past few years due to its potential to strengthen protection against falsification of transactions and drastically lower costs.  Many financial institutions around the world have partnered with IT firms to test various proof of concept designs. In this environment, Walmart Inc. has engaged in numerous collaborative research projects with VISA, focusing on VISA’s high-speed network and distributed computing technology.

Presale of the Walmart Leaf Tokens (WAL) will begin October 2018 will last until 75% (750,000,000 WAL) are distributed and 25% (250,000,000) is retained for sale to Walmart retailers. In total 1,000,000,000 WAL tokens are assigned. Purchasers from the presale will receive an email to claim their tokens within a few days.

Walmart Leaf has partnered with several top-tier cryptocurrency exchanges including Binance, Huobi, Poloniex, and Bitfinex. Once the distribution is complete, tokens will be available for trade using those platforms.

The new payment network will be a diverse payment service equipped with an interface that can be used as a communications network to track products, and including functions for the transfer and management of value through blockchain. This will allow for a significant reduction of transaction costs for all kinds of payment services and could support a large expansion in transaction numbers.

“The time to buy is when there’s blood on the streets” – Baron Rothschild

You have probably heard these stories, but let me explain why they are as important today as they were 100 years ago when first spoken. Not only that, it is just as relevant today. A bit of a background first.

Napoleon was at war with England. The Battle of Waterloo, it was England’s last chance to save itself, and remain as England. Baron Rothschild was standing at his post in the London stock exchange. If England wins, the market will rally, if Napoleon wins, it will go to shit. Baron Rothschild sends his private messenger to Waterloo and demands that he return to him and report who won the war.

His messenger does so and makes it in time before the public knows anything. England had won the Battle of Waterloo.  At his stand on the exchange, what does Barron do? You would think buy up stocks right? Nope, Baron starts to sell, at first slowly, and then faster. The other brokers on the floor watch what Rothschild is doing and think “Baron knows something, we lost, start selling”. Now, the brokers on the exchange begin selling in a frenzy.

At first glance, it might seem easy to find a good bitcoin blender that guarantees your anonymity and is secure. There are after all a number of big bitcoin mixers on the market, so how different can their services really be?

If that’s what you’re thinking, beware. All bitcoin blenders claim to have anonymous transactions – that is after all the main reason why anyone would want to use these services. This claim was however always difficult to test. How does one go about to check if these promises are indeed true?

This was the case until BestMixer.io appeared on the scene. Unlike previous bitcoin anonymization services, BestMixer.io features complete, verifiable anonymization for bitcoin. Releasing a utility named the Coin Anonymization Event (CAE) check, BestMixer.io not only proved that their bitcoin transactions could not be traced, but also showed that those of their competition could be. With this bold move, BestMixer.io not only demonstrated that they are a good bitcoin blender, but one could argue that they are the best. Even though those services that were exposed as not being anonymous have in the meantime changed their systems to prevent the CAE-check from revealing transaction detail, would you really be happy to trust them again?

BestMixer.io mixes not only Bitcoin, but also other leading cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin cash, Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin SV.
