First Kosher (Jewish) Crypto-Token and Blockchain Ecosystem BitCoen.io 97

British company BitCoen is opening up an international blockchain market. The company declared about its strategic goal – to help interaction between representatives of the Jewish communities around the world. The BitCoen ecosystem is a system of services, qualitatively improving the life of the Jewish community.

Jewish communities from different counties demonstrated their interest to the project at the pre-sale period. Yet before the start of Token sale the audience of the project was more than 25,000 people from 124 countries. Project’s geography covers the whole world: states of North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. According to the company’s representatives, most requests for the purchase of BitCoen tokens came from Germany, England, Spain, France, Italy and, of course, Israel. As previously reported, Vyacheslav Semenchuk, founder and CEO of BitCoen, invested $ 500,000 of his personal funds in the development of the project. Project’s pre-sale was held to strengthen on the market and to confirm the interest of the audience. More than $150 000 were raised during the pre-sale without a single shekel spent on marketing.

Team

The blockchain project BitCoen was created by a young and ambitious businessman – Vyacheslav Semenchuk. Under the age of 30 he has already created and sold more than 10 start-ups, including in the fintech industry. Lifepay, with turnover amounted to 2,5 billions, was the largest project created by the entrepreneur, it was sold to a bank subsequently. For this project’s creation Vyacheslav Semenchuk managed to get the title of “Entrepreneur of the Year” according to YE. Yet before the emergence of a mass interest in the technology of blockchain Vyacheslav Semenchuk was engaged in its implementation in bank sphere.

“The blockchain project BitCoen was originally conceived as a system of services, qualitatively improving the life of the Jewish community,” explains Vyacheslav Semenchuk.” This is a fairly closed community, existing Worldwide. This community has needs in internal mutual settlements, to help their own businesses, oriented only for Jews; and has a big culture of charity. And all theese needs must be accomplished in the most transparent and profitable way. The ideal target audience for a blockchain project! So we came up with the BitCoen ecosystem idea, which integrated the useful mechanics from the world of the blockchain.

The team members work all over the world. “The development of Internet technologies allowed us to create an international team,” says Vyacheslav Semenchuk. “The BitCoen team includes the most experienced blockchain programmers, crypto marketers and other experts in crypto-economics, who got interested in creating an ambitious, high-quality and interesting project.”

What does it have inside

The blockchain project consists of several parts, each of these parts logically complements the ecosystem.

BitCoen Token (BEN), which can act as a payment method between community representatives.

BitCoen loyalty program. Program users get BEN’s after purchases/services from the program partners and accrue BEN’s instead of abstract loyalty program points. BEN’s are accumulated and their duration isn’t limited. Unlike existing loyalty programs, that can have various restrictions for users, and often have unlimited opportunities for scammers, BitCoen Loyalty is completely transparent. No small fonts and asterisks in the program description. BEN’s do not burn after time, and can’t be canceled by anyone.

BitCoen Pay – payment system for online and offline purchases for private persons and businesses in points that accept payment by BENs. We have experience in creating payment systems (Life.Pay, PayQR) and we know how to make them even better so that the BitCoen project participants can use the most convenient payment services.

BitCoen Platform is a marketplace for Jewish businesses. A businessman can expand the number of customers, including at the expense of consumers from other countries.

BitCoen ADV – an advertising platform for the popularization of Jewish businesses, we already collected a huge target audience and we can do almost any targeting.

BitCoen blockchain technology

BitCoen is based on the source code of the izzz.io platform and uses a consensus that is based on Limited Confidence Confirmation Proof-of-Activity (LCPoA) and a trusted node system (Thrusted Nodes) to speed up the network. It is also planned to create a BitCoen compatibility layer with the ERC20 standard, for easy integration with exchanges. The choice of the izzz.io blockchain-platform is justified by the characteristics of this system, which exceeds the analogs for a number of parameters.

LCPoA blockchain algorithm is one of the most important features of Bitcoen blockchain. This algorithm reliably protects the network from spam and false transactions, while it does not require large expenditures of computing resources. There is a lack of mining in the system, all transactions within the platform network – are free. The technology provides a high network speed (up to 25,000 transactions per second). “BitCoen Blockchain is a new generation blockchain, which does not require participation in the “arms race” for the power of computers that spend an enormous amount of electricity. It is reliable, fast and free in terms of blockchain transactions. We can say that Bitcoin is a first generation blockchain (Blockchain 1.0), Etherium is Blockchain 2.0 and BitCoen – Blockchain 3.0,” explains Vyacheslav.

Token Sale

Since the BitCoen blockchain project is designed for a mass audience, it is very important to prove it with maximum transparency and legality. BitCoen legal team provided different options for the development of events and could create the most stable and secure system. BitCoen is a token, not an investment tool, it does not imply receipt of passive profit and does not have any signs of a stock. BitCoen doesn’t hold ICO but Token Sale only, which basically is a token pre-sale.

November 28, 2017 is the official start of the Token sale of the BitCoen blockchain project at http://bitcoen.io, which will last until December 26, 2017. Up to 20 million BENs at the price of $1 per one BEN are available on the Token sale. The emission of BitCoen is 100.000.000 BENs.

Development prospects of BitCoen

After the completion of Token sale, the platform makes a listing on the global crypto-exchange. According to Vyacheslav Semenchuk, placement on the exchange is one of the marketing tools that allow us to expand the audience of the project.

As is known, the value of any cryptocurrency is determined by the audience’s interest in it and the real functional behind the token. The functionality of the BitCoen project allows Jews around the world to develop their business, staying within the framework of cultural traditions.

It should be noted that the creators of the project managed to attract not only experienced cryptocurrency users, but also an absolutely offline audience. “We understand that nowadays only a small percentage of the world’s Jewish communities use cryptocurrencies, the potential of blocking technologies is not yet appreciated,” says Vyacheslav Semenchuk. “That’s why we used al of the advertising channels and tried, first of all, to train a new audience and tell about the advantages and easy ways of access to technology.”

According to the auditors’ estimates, the capitalization of the BitCoen will be about 1,5 billion dollars after the realization of all components. According to independent experts, in the future, the capitalization of BitCoen can grow 10 times. “We are the largest jewish blockchain project for now, oriented to b2b and b2c audience. Even before the start of Token sale, we made partners with more than 700 large stores (among them OZON.ru, Aliexpress and others), which will add points in BEN’s when buying from them,” says Vyacheslav Semenchuk.

Moty Cristal, an international negotiator and an active member in global Jewish affairs, stresses that: “BitCoen project is a breath of fresh air which can further support the close relationships between  Jewish communities worldwide, in this time of dynamic financial challenges and innovative opportunities”.

Prescryptive Health Announces Free COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling Solution to Support Independent Pharmacies Nationwide 4428

Prescryptive Health, a healthcare technology company, announced a free vaccine scheduling solution for pharmacies across the country. This service builds on their successful COVID-19 testing partnership with the State of New York, and will be available nationwide beginning today. The initiative is part of a larger commitment by Prescryptive Health to empower pharmacists and consumers through its digital platform to improve the way healthcare is delivered, making it more affordable and accessible to all.

“Local pharmacies play a critical role providing vaccines, yet they don’t have a solution that can meet their needs and address their specific challenges with COVID-19 vaccines,” said Chris Blackley, CEO of Prescryptive Health. “Our solution closes that gap, is easy to use and is now available at no cost to pharmacies nationwide.”

Prescryptive’s scheduling solution is designed for pharmacists by pharmacists to provide the security, flexibility, and ease-of-use required to deliver COVID-19 vaccines in today’s fluid environment. Pharmacists can configure when and where they provide vaccines, customize patient screening criteria to comply with state and local guidelines, and manage patient demand with a new “waitlist” function that allows them to invite patients directly for appointments to prevent over-booking. Equally important, Prescryptive’s solution is architected on blockchain, fully encrypted, and HIPAA-compliant.

Patient success has also been engineered into Prescryptive’s solution. The mobile-first design allows patients to minimize time spent onsite at the pharmacy and to receive real-time notifications from pharmacists when appointments become available. Patients receive a digital proof of their vaccination with links to additional health and safety information—including the CDC v-safe program. Beginning in April, patients will also have the ability to book appointments directly with a local pharmacy at MyRx.io.

Max Dilendorf Serves as a Bitcoin Expert Witness in USCIS EB-5 Green Card Adjudication Proceedings 4787

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has frequently denied EB-5 applications that list Bitcoin exchange-traded-funds as a legitimate “source of funds”. Yet, in an unprecedented approach that included forensic reporting analysis, attorney Max Dilendorf provided an expert legal opinion and due diligence report proving that a green card applicants’ source of funds met the standards to be qualified under this program.

Because USCIS only requires a “preponderance of evidence” showing the legal acquisition of investment funds in EB-5 petitions and offers little guidance for applicants whose funds originated in cryptocurrency, Dilendorf’s confirming evidence was a significant achievement.

The Dilendorf Law Firm, NYC’s top law firm for the digital age, represented several clients in EB-5 matters with the USCIS concerning the clients’ EB-5 investments funded with cryptocurrencies. By submitting blockchain and cryptocurrency expert reports in these cases, the firm has provided evidence to support the legitimate “source of funds”.

The firm’s clients were software engineers and early cryptocurrency adopters who, in the opinion of the crypto compliance law firm, are legally qualified for obtaining EB-5 investor green-cards, as there was little doubt on the legality of the source of the clients’ cryptocurrency funds.

Dilendorf’s legal opinions and blockchain forensic reports, as submitted to the USCIS, included an expert assessment of the following:

  • legality of the specific digital assets and regulatory framework for the involved financial institutions dealing with cryptocurrencies;
  • origin and flow of cryptocurrencies funding the EB-5 investments;
  • mechanism and sufficiency of digital wallets, private cryptographic keys, crypto trading platforms and accounts establishing ownership of the clients’ cryptocurrency funds;
  • KYC/AML compliance measures taken at each point of the funds’ journey by clients and third parties, including crypto exchanges and OTC traders.

Max Dilendorf, Esq. is also a top forensic Bitcoin and crypto expert witness. His expertise has also made him one of the top cryptocurrency consultants for Fortune 500 companies.  Mr. Dilendorf’s recent speaking engagements have included the Thailand SEC, IBM, Berkshire Hathaway, and New York University, to name a few.
