Many ICO’s, (Initial Coin Offerings), allow participants/investors to stock up on the ICO’s proprietary cryptocurrency via exchange of a variety of popular cryptocurrencies. The cryptocurrencies accepted in exchange are usually Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Lisk, etc. Direct USD for ICO tokens is also a popular option.

Fiancia Ltd UK’s ICO Pre-Sale of FIN cryptocurrency tokens for the Fiancia Copy Trading Platform has simplified this process, by primarily accepting only Ethereum for FIN tokens. Because most cryptocurrency tokens are derived from Ethereum’s ERC20 standard, (and Ethereum is needed to pay miners for their services in facilitating the transactions of ERC20 tokens), direct payment of Ether for ICO tokens is an expedient strategy.

After the first week of the Fiancia ICO Pre-Sale, Fiancia is now accepting Visa and Mastercard payments for FIN, as well as ETH. Below is a guide on participating in Fiancia’s ICO using VIsa, Mastercard, or Ethereum ETH, (Ether).

  1. Go to https://fiancia.io/
  2. Sign up with your email, or sign in with your username and password.FianciaLandingPage
  3. Enter your Ethereum wallet address in the top field. The wallet address entered has to support ERC20 tokens. A good place to obtain an Ethereum wallet is https://www.myetherwallet.com/. ETH transfers from Exchanges are not allowed.FianciaICO
  4. Below this field you will see the “Pre-Sale ICO Calculation” field. This is where you can calculate the amount of ETH needed to purchase the amount of FIN tokens you are interested in buying.Calculator
  5. Below the FIN token calculator, and Available Balance display, you will find the “Click here for Deposit to buy FIN tokens” button. Click on this button to go to the “Deposit” page.Deposit
  6. At the Deposit Page you have a choice of two tabs, “Deposit by ETH” or “Deposit by Visa / Mastercard”:DepositPage
  7. At the “Deposit by ETH”  tab, press the “Generate” button to fill in the “Deposit Address” field with an address to use at your Ether wallet, to transfer ETH to buy tokens. When you have made that transfer, (at your Ethereum wallet), fill in the “Amount (ETH)” field, the “Your ETH address” field, and the “Your TX ID Reference*” field.ETHdeposit
  8. Click on Deposit after payment for FIN Tokens from your Ethereum (ETH) Wallet has been made. Note : Before clicking on deposit please make sure that you have paid the correct amount, and put the correct TX ID Reference number in the “Your TX ID Reference*” field
  9. At the “Deposit By Visa / Master Card” tab, enter the amount of the Visa / Mastercard purchase, select the currency type (USD, EUR, or RUB), enter your email address, then click in the “You will get FIN tokens” field to see the amount of the purchase in FIN tokens. Then click on the “Deposit” button.VISAdeposit

 

After completing the above simple steps, your FIN tokens will be sent to the Ethereum wallet address you have specified. You can track your transfers of FIN tokens in the left menu, “Buy” button, then “Buy Status”. This will take you to your “Orders Status” page.Fiancia_Main_Image

Cryptocurrency_Trading

Introduction

The dramatic valuation increase of the first blockchain digital asset, Bitcoin, has lead to the proliferation of alternate distributed ledger currencies and new corporate funding methods, (for example, ICOs).  With the rapidly increasing availability of Crypto-financial instruments, resources for managing the diverse array of digital assets have also rapidly multiplied.

The authoring of new Cryptocurrencies have generated a hierarchical structure of support resources. With Cryptocurrencies as the base layer, the next overlaid layer and the beginning of the support structure is Cryptocurrency Storage Services. The next layer is Cryptocurrency Exchanges, providing Cryptocurrency exchange pairs and internal storage. Then, Cryptocurrency Trading Platforms, providing charting/analysis of individual Cryptocurrencies. At the beginning of the information-based layers of Cryptocurrency support, is the Cryptocurrency data tracking services, providing lists of Cryptocurrencies and relevant statistics.

Above the Cryptocurrency Data Tracking Services are internet-based Cryptocurrency News Publications, providing notification and analysis of new developments. Above this layer is the Cryptocurrency News Aggregation Services, allowing individual analysis and curation. In parallel to this structure of resources, similar resources for managing the advent of ICOs also exist. Expected near future developments include dedicated Cryptocurrency podcasts, and the emergence of popular commentaries on blockchain economics via internet blogs and video social media posting.

It is expected that hybrid services will also emerge, and gain in influence. For example, the Social Copy Trading platform in development by Fiancia Limited UK, at fiancia.io. Fiancia Ltd. also recognizes that increasing popularity of Cryptocurrency Trading and Utilization will require the migration of Crypto-Economics dedicated news services to the realm of television broadcasting and live streaming.

Need For A Dedicated Cryptocurrency Channel

A dedicated Cryptocurrency News Channel is logically needed as an information source for individuals to make educated decisions regarding Crypto-financial investments and utilization. Bitcoin is situated to replicate the success of IBM, General Motors, Ford, and Apple. The Altcoins, derived from Bitcoin, will eventually evolve into niche markets. Determining the possible successfulness of these new technologies will require diverse expertise. Cryptocurrency Trading and Utilization will eventually involve 10s of millions to 100s of millions of individuals around the World. Sources of information on the emergence of the Crypto-Finance World should preferably support reliability, easy accessibility and inexpensiveness. Therefore, availability of news about Cryptocurrencies via an optimally accessible source like modern internet-enabled televisions will gain traction in the same manner as with all previous technological trends.

The limitations of media posting to the internet to inform the local populations around the World, include unreliability of the information sources and lack of authenticity.  A vast majority of persons rely on television channels for an authoritative source of information. Monitoring of dedicated news channels is universally a popular method of staying informed about Business Sector developments.

Almost all households in developed nations have televisions. Television users now access television content via diverse mediums including analog and digital television, cable, satellite, live streaming, and ground-based transmission. The proliferation of televisions is steadily increasing throughout the World. With the increasing popularity of Cryptocurrencies, a proprietary Cryptocurrency TV channel is needed for effective information dissemination. Eventually, an easily accessible news source dedicated to Cryptocurrency could determine the Cryptocurrency efforts that emerge as the most prominent endeavours.

CryptoNews

Fiancia Limited UK’s Cryptocurrency TV Initiative

Fiancia Limited has the objective of  launching a proprietary TV channel dedicated to keeping viewers updated with Cryptocurrency news, broadcasts, blockchain technology, breaking news, debates by Cryptocurrency market leaders, and financial data on all Cryptocurrency pairs 24 hours per day and 7 days per week. Fiancia Ltd’s goal is to achieve live streaming on all the broadcast satellite networks and devices.

Fiancia plans to provide non-stop updates and news about different Cryptographic coins through hourly news bulletin, breaking news, and news tickers. Air time to clients who would want to promote their own products and service through Fiancia’s Cryptocurrency Channel will be provided, as well as forums for discussion of various Crypto-Economic topics.

The prospective viewers of Fiancia’s Cryptocurrency Channel include the present and future user base of Cryptocurrencies. This user base already exists everywhere in the World, in 2018, as well as many programmers, lawyers, economists, and businessmen that are able to articulate important information about Cryptocurrency. Fiancia plans to provide a forum for Cryptocurrency brokers, financial institutions, professionals, and innovators to express their opinions.

Fiancia plans to provide a platform for new Cryptocurrency developers and investors to create awareness about their products. The major revenue sources are expected to be the advertising campaigns of Crypto-Brokerages and Cryptocurrency Wallet Services providers, and other paid content presenting new opportunities relating to Cryptocurrency.

Conclusion

Various established business television services are beginning to discuss Crypto-Economics in the form of having businesspersons, programmers and investors talk about trends and the future of Cryptocurrencies. At this time, the discussion topics are not keeping pace with the rapid developments in Cryptocurrency technology, or the variety of Cryptocurrency development efforts. The World’s population is also in need of information about the state of acceptance of Cryptocurrencies by the World’s local governments. The development of a Cryptocurrency television channel will help to disseminate the opportunities available to the World’s population via the new era of Crypto-Finances.

 

The Emergence of Copy Trading

Social Media combines with Internet Trading

Introduction

Internet Social Networking has lead to the phenomena of Social Trading. Social Trading allows individuals to copy the trading positions of reputable investors. Thereby, transferring the tasks of opening and managing trading positions to a central investor, whose combined strategies are accessible to a network of individuals seeking to benefit from the central Investor’s trading successes. The Copying Trader only needs to choose a Copied Trader, and the amount of funds the Copying Trader is willing to invest. The Copying Trader also has the ability to issue an individual Stop Loss Order, thereby setting an individual level of risk for the Copying Trader.  Essentially, the investment portfolios of Copy Traders are investments in the financial analysis capabilities of prominent Copied Traders.

The Origin of Copy Trading

Before the internet, Investment Traders were able to subscribe to the newsletters of industry-wide recognized successful Traders. The Investor’s newsletters usually provided general investment advice, and reviews of investment instruments, allowing the subscribers insight into potentially gainful strategies. The availability of Cable Television in the 1980’s allowed for the first all-business television networks to broadcast to television viewers on a national scale. Investors then could combine subscribing to investment newsletters, with monitoring of business news on dedicated cable television channels.

Bulletin board inter-computer communications in the late 1980’s allowed for the publishing of investment advice in real time, and with two-way messaging. However, this mode of transmitting investment advice from guiding investors required monitoring in real-time. Email, beginning in the early 1990’s, allowed for the electronic publishing of newsletter-like investment advice, and feedback from investment email subscribers. Internet chat rooms also evolved the capabilities first advanced in computer bulletin boards, and provided a form of consensus generation combined with central guidance.

The First Automated Methods of Trading Replication

Real time, electronic forms of transmitting investment advice remained popular throughout the 1990’s, and into the turn of the century. The first form of Copy Trading emerged in 2005, with the first platforms for investors to publish their entire trading strategies online. The premise of these platforms was to enable “Mirror Trading”. Individual investors could study the trading strategies, and the results of trading strategies, online and synchronize their accounts with the trading strategy publishers. The published strategies of the first Mirror Trading platforms required approval before being made available to Mirror Trading customers.

The next Copy Trading platforms allowed any investor to publish their strategies, and financial results. For the first time, any investor could copy the trades of any other investor. The Social Media technology emerging around 2008, was tentatively used to augment Copy Trading, via the inclusion of comments, likes, ratings, and link sharing. Social media methods of trading can inversely generate possibly beneficial investment advice, via combining the strategies of many Social Traders into a median strategy, possible optimized for comparatively beneficial gains.

Modern Social Networks, and Copy Trading

By 2015, Social Networks had gained widespread acceptance in the general population, and had expanded to include mobility, localization, and multimedia capabilities. In order to reach the maximum numbers of income generating followers, merchants of information began relying on popular Social Media networks, (like Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube), to gain new customers and inform followers. Information published on the popular Social Media Networks, propagated rapidly with social, mobile, and localized networking, augmented by hashtag searching, and customer-curated lists of sources.

By 2012, studies of Copy Trading had shown that guided trading usually resulted in gains for the guided-trading customers. The effort to find the most optimal methods of Copy Trading began, influenced by the positive findings of scientific studies of Copy Trading.

Cryptocurrency

The Innovation of Cryptocurrency Trading

Research into decentralized computing, beginning in the late 1990’s, lead to the concept of decentralized digital assets, or “Crypto-currency”. The first decentralized, (or “Blockchain”), cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, was published in 2009. Blockchain Cryptocurrency exists on a distributed ledger that is impervious to control by a central authority. Subsequent alternate cryptocurrencies, (or “Altcoins”), were published in order to offer features not provided by Bitcoin. The value of cryptocurrencies varies with the total node count of cryptocurrency buyers, and the total market capitalization of the cryptocurrency.

As Bitcoin, (and other cryptocurrencies), gained wider acceptance, the value of the digital asset holdings of cryptocurrency buyers increased dramatically. The limitations on acceptance of cryptocurrency was, however, influenced by volatility and the risk of computer hacking. Undaunted by the limited acceptance of the blockchain by the corporate world, trading of cryptocurrencies began gaining worldwide traction exponentially.

Cryptocurrency promises to eventually replace previous forms of monetary transfer, national currencies, stocks and bonds, startup funding, and internal currency handling within online software. Cryptocurrency will revolutionize finances in the same way the internet revolutionized media. The cycle of funding during the lifetimes of corporate entities will eventually rely greatly on cryptocurrency fundraising, and blockchain resource management. The first emergence of this phenomena is the new corporate investment vehicle of “ICOs”, or “Initial Coin Offerings”. ICOs could potential replace Seed Money, Venture Capital, Angel Investments, Initial Public Offerings, and traditional Stocks and Bonds.

Social Cryptocurrency Trading

By 2016, the simultaneous phenomenon of Cryptocurrency investment successes, and Social Media Marketing ubiquitousness, merged in the new trend of Social Trading via the following of Popular Traders on popular social media platforms. Cryptocurrency Trading allows for participation by individuals everywhere in the world, via the internet. Blockchain distributed computing enables democratization of crypto-economics, free from localized Authorities.

Because Automated Trading does not yet apply to Cryptocurrency economics in an optimal manner, crypto-traders now prefer to trade via selection of cryptocurrencies and ICOs with the highest potential of growth, and then wait for long-term gains over the course of months, (rather than micro-trading over the course of hours or minutes). Therefore, advice on cryptocurrencies derived from careful analysis and business world experience, is in demand over the Internet.

Fiancia_Second_Image

Fiancia Ltd is introducing an innovative Copy Trading platform to connect major Social Media trading Influencers with Cryptocurrency Traders. In March 2018, Fiancia is having a Public Sale of the internal currency tokens, FIN. Traders will use FIN cryptocurrency to transact Copy Trading via desktop interface, or Fiancia’s mobile app. Fiancia is also pioneering the broadcasting of Cryptocurrency Trading information via the first ever Cryptocurrency TV channel. 2018 will represent the beginning of high capitalization personal trading of blockchain cryptocurrencies. Fiancia’s Social, (and Mobile), Copy Trading platform is the beginning of a new standard of Trading Platforms. Given the general rule that more data points lead to better results of prediction, the worldwide popularity of prominent Cryptocurrency Investors has started a new era of Copy Trading, now accessible to the entire World’s population.

The Future of Cryptocurrency

A more energy efficient and secure form of Bitcoin will possibly emerge as a World Currency, like the Globo. An easily programmable blockchain ledger, like Etherium, will possibly emerge as a replacement for Stocks and Bonds, and other contracts that are securities. The Bitcoin equivalent in Etherium, Ether, can possible also emerge as a World Currency.

The methods of funding Startups that now exist – Seed Money, Venture Capital, Series A-F funding rounds, and IP0s will be replaced by Blockchain ICOs. The World’s stock exchanges, (NYSE, FTSE, DAX, etc.), will be replaced with Cryptocurrency Exchanges. Eventually, cryptocurrencies will be merged, possible with 100s of cryptocurrencies merged into a new cryptocurrency simultaneously. Corporate mergers, and acquistions, will involve cryptocurrency mergers and acquistions. Thereby, old cryptocurrencies whose values have dropped to zero, still have hope in the form of mergers that will once again earn money for the holders of old cryptocurrencies. Inversely, cryptocurrency monopolies and congomerates, will be broken up into new subdivided cryptocurrencies.

The World’s government bonds and treasury bonds will be replaced with cryptocurrency government/treasury tokens tradable to individuals, organizations and countries throughout the world. This will benefit developing nations, and move money from wealthy countries to poorer countries, the same as the Euro or Globo.

The asynchronous javascript/xml Web 2.0 will evolve into a blockchain Web 3.0. Activities previously done for free on the Web, will become tokenized, and therefore have a value attached. The cumulative value will possibly never equal the amount of money possibly earned via regular employment. However, many persons might still turn to Web 3.0 tokenized activity for a source of meager income.

Finally, paper money and coins might become paper and metal representations of national cryptocurrencies. National cryptocurrencies will then have a stablizing effect on the values of all other cryptocurrencies. World travel, and world trade, will also benefit from the easy conversion of hundreds of forms of cryptocurrency into locally accepted national cryptocurrencies.

Thank you very much!

The Smart Contracts Internet

With Blockchain technology, and Smart Contracts technology, (like Ethereum), all your internet activity can have a value attached. You can receive a payment for blogs, shares, likes, etc. An example that already exists, is https://steemit.com/.
 
Internet activity for free will cease to exist. The amount of money that the majority of the population could earn this way, will never equal enough money for personal support. Maybe, around $50 per month.
 
Also concerning is, if the Blockchain/Smart Contracts Internet ever exists, it would possibly lead to an era of Internet Slavery for millions of persons. Persons having a symbiotic relationship with the internet for a meager salary and never being able to quit, is possibly a phenomena that the World’s governments will wish to circumvent.

Augmenting R Programming/Data Science with Tableau

After years of R programming and Data Science experience, I decided to study Tableau. I was motivated by the prospect of creating improved Data Science plots using Tableau’s resources. I discovered that Tableau does, in many ways, allow for the creation of graphs that are visually preferable to ggplot2 in R. The quality of Tableau’s graphs are comparable to the googlevis, and ggvis, R packages. After previewing the R language integration in Tableau, I am glad that I have ggplot2 graphing skills for ease of coding.

Therefore, with the above explanation taken care of, here are samples of my new Tableau skills:

1 – A Plot of pollution readings from an Oil Production facility:

2 – A plot comparing pollution readings from 3 sources:

3 – Clustering, by Tableau, of pollution readings:

4 – A map of IoT device locations:

5 – A graph of IoT location stream durations:

6 – An IoT graph of Vehicle Count per Garage Code:

7 – An IoT graph of Vehicle Count by Total Spaces over time:

8 – A Linear Regression Plot of Movie Budgets by Rating:

9 – A Box Plot of E.Coli/S.Aureus absorbance experiments:

10 – A Quantile Distribution Plot of E.Coli/S.Aureus absorbances:

11- A map of acquisitions by Portugal Ventures:

12 – Finally, an IoT Dashboard with selectable checkboxes:

New StartUp — the WalkInJobSearch App

I would like to introduce my concept of a transformative App – The WalkInJobSearch App. The WalkInJobSearch app is a form of uberization, and employs methodologies found in gig economy apps in order to transform a traditional work search regimen.

The mission of the WalkInJobSearch app is to transform the traditional method of job hunting via personal delivery of your resume. With the WalkInJobSearch app, Job Seekers can first see the Businesses where Job Seekers are welcome to apply for employment in person. Business are able to schedule and track the arrivals of Job Seekers, personally receive their resumes, and discuss application for employment. The goal of the WalkInJobSearch app is to accomplish this transformation of employment searching on an international basis.

The app will have a Job Seeker interface, and a Business interface. The App will be monetized at the point of successful application by a Job Seeker to a Business. When that occurrence is confirmed via the App, a Service Fee paid by the Business is automatically transferred. Thereby, the App will have a revenue stream not dependent on advertising. The target market for the WalkInJobSearch App will be young adults and teens looking for their first jobs, and older individuals looking for service industry work, or work in other street-level industries. Therefore, the revenue of the App is possibly substantial.

Development of the WalkInJobSearch app has began via prototyping in the R programming language, using the Shinyapps R package. A Github repository for the app has been created, and initial R scripts uploaded. An AngelList account has been created: https://angel.co/walkinjobsearch, and a Crunchbase account has been created: https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/walkinjobsearch-app#/entity.

 

 

Investing in the WalkInJobSearch app is available at a beginning equity rate of 1% share of total valuation per $10,000 invested. Sale of the WalkInJobSearch app concept is available to investors or developers via two methods: Method 1) requires a $1,000 initial payment, plus 5% of total revenue, (payable monthly), from products based on the WalkInJobSearch app concept. Method 2) requires a $10,000 initial payment, plus 1% of total revenue, (payable monthly), from products based on the WalkInJobSearch app concept.

As the App’s founder and Lead Data Scientist, I have many years of Data Management and Financial Management experience. If you, (or your company), are interested in investing or acquiring the app concept, please contact me, John Akwei ECMp ERMp Data Scientist, via LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/john-akwei-8138b02, or via email at johnakwei1@gmail.com.
