Vertbase: Coinbase for Altcoins.

Accelerating cryptocurrency adoption

Founded in 2018, Vertbase is a highly secure and user-friendly digital currency platform for buying and selling cryptocurrencies with US Dollars. Vertbase was born with the aim of finding a solution to the complex, time-consuming and expensive process of trading altcoins on most crypto exchanges, which tends to prevent non-experts from engaging in crypto trading.

Coinbase is a great platform for only few cryptocurrencies, but there are many other coins with high value that cannot be traded on the Coinbase exchange.

Looking at Coinbase and the challenge around coin trading, Justin Seidl and Stuart Menzies, co-founder at Vertabse, created a digital altcoin trading platform that is user-friendly, super-fast and highly secure. A Coinbase for altcoins, but only the one with legitimate projects and strong use cases, particularly those Vertbase believes can change the landscape of finance: DigiByte, Vertcoin, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ravencoin and Decred.

In the latest episode of FinancialFox, Justin Seidl was interviewed by Blockchain PR expert Stefania Barbaglio, where he talked about how he came to create and design Vertbase, and shares his views on the altcoins to watch.

The mission behind Vertbase is to give visibility and market exposure to altcoins with high use case value. Altcoins are considerably less expensive than coins such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, and in some cases are more sophisticated and highly developed.

Over the recent months, cryptocurrency exchanges have been in the spotlight over coins being delisted and alleged extortionate listing fees required by prominent exchanges. These controversies highlighted the need for corrections in the way the crypto market works and the challenges that need to be overcome. They also prompted more calls for further decentralisation and transparency among exchanges.

Indeed, the current lack of regulatory frameworks leaves room for inconsistent practices. Different cryptocurrency exchanges can offer various types of cryptocurrencies, with different terms, policies, payment methods, and fees. Exchanges also differ on aspects such as security, user-friendliness, functionality, and design.

Some of the advantages Vertbase offers users is 100% non-custodial transactions that allow users to send coins to any wallet of their choice. In the spirit of co-operation, Vertbase also gives a portion of trading fees back to the community to continue development.

Moreover, with security reportedly the biggest worry among cryptocurrency traders, Vertbase is equipped with a robust anti-money laundering monitoring system. Furthermore, its system requires two-factor authentication, granting access to authorised users only, while the website and apps are fully secured with 128-bit encryption. Vertbase is registered with FinCEN and operates with full compliance and procedures under all US federal and state laws.

This January, Vertbase donated 50,000 DGB to the DigiByte Awareness Team to show their support of the project and DigiByte’s vision. “DigiByte has proven strong use cases, which include security features utilising the Digibyte Blockchain. Digibyte has some exciting plans and projects, so we have no doubt they will continue to be a major player in this industry,” says co-founder Justin Seidl.

Vertbase Founders Justin Seidl and Stuart Menzies will also be presenting at the DBG summit. The DGB community can also expect more news and updates on DGB projects to be released during the first global DigiByte Summit, taking place in Amsterdam on 19th April 2019. The theme of the Summit is ‘The Power of Decentralisation’ and its agenda will expand on the multitude of possibilities and uses enabled by decentralised technologies.

Block 30 Labs: Powering DigiByte to build Digital Asset Indexes

Announced as a speaker at the first DigiByte Global Summit next month, Block 30 Labs is at the forefront of bringing tokenised asset trading to a mass scale, collaborating with DigiByte blockchain.

With its headquarters in San Diego, at the heart California’s tech hub, Block 30 Labs is developing tools to enable digital asset indexes in the blockchain era. The team is a network of global blockchain technologists, computer scientists, economists, financial engineers, researchers and global media alumni from Yale, Harvard, Georgetown, Wharton, Duke, Stanford, UCSB and UCLA — all gathered to develop top-notch financial and trading platforms built on blockchain.

Block 30 Labs is developing three core applications of decentralised blockchain technology for global adoption by consumers, merchants and the Fortune 500 enterprises for release in their 2019–2020 roadmap.

To kick off the project, Block 30 team studied the Alibaba platform and its success in the Chinese market. Block 30 CEO Brian McLaren Foote says the team drew inspiration from the way Alibaba streamlined new technology to create an innovative and efficient consumer experience.

The Chinese giant is indeed one of the most pertinent references in terms of e-commerce, digital payments and interoperability — and Block 30 hopes to replicate this comprehensive and innovative approach for the digital assets market.

Blockchain & E-commerce

The speed and convenience of mobile as a shopping and payment gateway keeps attracting more and more users each year. The use of blockchain technology in ecommerce and digital payments can bring these services to the next level in an already very profitable market: recent data shows that worldwide mobile payment revenue should exceed $1 trillion in 2019 and more than 2.1B consumers are expected to use mobile payments this year. The degree to which online and mobile sales are growing shows the importance of developing a marketplace capable of dealing of tons of data in a commercially viable manner.

The Alibaba Group, Block 30’s role model, is reportedly studying the implementation of blockchain technology into cross-border supply chains. The group already deploys blockchain for other functionalities in their platforms, as well as Internet of Things (IoT).

The main problems in ecommerce nowadays are related to payments checkouts, cybersecurity and supply chain management. By putting an end to intermediary bodies, blockchain can transform ecommerce into a much faster and safer process.

The advantage of using blockchain in ecommerce is the integration and ownership of digital assets — challenging traditional monopolies and protecting users. For example, retailers can launch ICOs directly on the platform and distribute tokens among their customer base. Credit card brands like MasterCard are reportedly working with blockchain to make its market payment systems more fit for use.

The Block 30 index helps to accurately measure the value and performance of digital assets. It is one of the very first US indexes to help investors track multiple factors in the market beyond Bitcoin. With a growing number of Security Token Offerings (STOs) in 2019, the market requires increasingly sophisticated tools to assess the real value of digital assets.

“We hope that the BLOCK 30 Index can help improve industry coverage “Beyond Bitcoin” via global media, government, research and regulatory institutions — while also providing better safeguards and clarity for retail investors seeking early exposure to the front-end of a potential economic cycle,” says Brian Foote.

Block 30 Labs is working on three projects:

1. The BLOCK 30 Marketplace: the world’s first Web 3.0 marketplace built on blockchain. The platform will pair global buyers and sellers for exchanges of value on the blockchain, including: concert tickets, automotive, hospitality, businesses, land, farms, wineries, fractional ownership, mixed use development and commercial real estate.

2. The BLOCK 30 Pay Digital Wallet, which will be available at checkout on the BLOCK 30 Marketplace to help global customers and merchants begin to adopt and use digital assets vs. credit cards through an asset called BLOCKS, powered by DigiByte.

3. The BLOCK 30 Financial Division, which will provide BLOCK 30 Pay digital wallet holders the ability to invest in customised security tokens (ex: BLOCK 5, BLOCK 10, BLOCK 30, etc.) directly from their mobile phone.

In the Web 3.0, the internet will come back into the hands of its users, thanks to decentralisation and distributed consensus protocols. The new model emphasises sharing and collaborating among users in order to concentrate data and operability in the hands of a few companies — known nowadays as ‘big tech’.

But, in order to function in the Web 3.0, blockchain platforms will need to address interoperability — a feature Block 30 Labs is priming. Being interoperable means that a specific blockchain network is able to recognise and operate with others. Without this, blockchain nodes are isolated from those outside, secluded in their own network.

The aim is to allow different blockchain projects to communicate with one another, regardless of their structures, offering more possibilities for users and greater versatility for different projects to be integrated.

Block 30 platforms are built on DigiByte blockchain, which is the longest and fastest blockchain currently available in the crypto market. Despite not being among the most prominent cryptocurrencies, DigiByte holds the potential to be so much more than a digital currency, particularly because of DigiAssets.

For over 2 years, the DigiByte team has been working on this feature that allows other organisations to build their projects on top of DigiByte. DigiByte was designed to scale on-chain, hence maintaining its core aspects of security and decentralisation. Partnerships and collaborations on new projects to change the way people transact and communicate are absolutely vital to the development and wider adoption of DigiByte.

The full digital asset marketplace addresses sectors beyond just store of wealth, such as supply chain management, financial services, social networks, data security, digital identity, gaming, mediums of exchange and privacy. A true representative and comprehensive index should enable exposure to all major thematic sectors, rather than just a small selection, and begin to mirror some of the key sectors that drive global capital markets indexes. In light of this, DigiByte’s DigiAssets were presented as the perfect fit to develop Block 30.

Rudy Bouwman from the DigiByte Awareness Team believes the partnership is extremely positive for DigiByte and goes to show the versatility and user value of DigiAssets: “We’re very excited about the collaboration between DigiByte and Block 30 Labs. Their solutions and services are built on DigiByte Technology and DigiAssets platform, and with that they would be able to position DigiByte in front of consumers, investors, merchants and companies, even Fortune 500. We believe this can drive DigiByte up the ranks significantly in terms of market cap, awareness and adoption.”

DigiByte founder Jared Tate believes Block 30 is a huge step towards eventual mass adoption of DGB technology: “By leveraging the speed, scalability and security of the DigiByte blockchain as the backbone of their offerings, BLOCK 30 Labs will pierce the secondary layers of the consumer, merchant and professional enterprise world, which is a huge milestone along the journey for mass global adoption of the DigiByte ecosystem.”

Stefania Barbaglio, official PR for DigiByte commented: “It is all about collaborating on game-changing projects with good partners. Over the last year DigiByte has proved its potential as forward-thinking blockchain technology with varied partnership on innovative applications and solutions to secure, facilitate, promote faster transactions of assets. Block 30 is a revolutionary team that will accelerate the decentralisation of consumer and enterprise adoption, asset tokenisation and more accessible 1st-3rd world financial cooperation on the blockchain. The e-commerce place is ripe for change and DigiByte and Block30 team are initiating this disruption. The DigiByte team and community are extremely excited about their future announcements at the conference.”

Brian Foote joins a group of high-calibre speakers presenting at the Summit discussing how a future powered by decentralised technologies and Digibyte will look. Confirmed speakers include DigiByte founder Jared Tate; Official DigiByte PR Stefania Barbaglio; Rudy Bouwman, the founder of DGBAT, the DigiByte Awareness Team; the founders and lead developers of V-ID and Antum ID; and Vertbase Founders, Justin Seidl and Stuart Menzies.

Block 30 Labs presenting at the DigiByte Global Summit

Cassiopeia Services, official PR for DigiByte, is pleased to announce Block 30 Labs as partner at the first DigiByte Global Summit.

Block 30 Labs is developing indexes to work with strategic global partners to issue tokenised, digital index funds (ECFs). The BLOCK 30 Index was built to provide a central framework for the tracking of the 24/7 Digital Trading (“Crypto”) markets by global media, financial institutions, government and investors.

Officially launched in November 2018, the Block 30 index helps to accurately measure the value and performance of digital assets. It is one of the very first US indices to help investors track multiple factors in the market beyond Bitcoin. With a growing number of Security Token Offerings (STOs), the market requires more comprehensive and sophisticated tools to assess the value of digital assets.

The unique aspect to BLOCK 30 is that it begins to disaggregate Digital Trading assets from their singular classification within this new asset class. It distinguishes between core holdings such as Bitcoin — which may function more as a store of value — and STOs, which will function more like Initial Public Offering (IPOs), with real revenues and fundamentals.

Confirmed speakers at the first DigiByte Global summit include DigiByte founder Jared Tate; Official DigiByte PR Stefania Barbaglio; Rudy Bouwman, the founders of DGBAT, the DigiByte Awareness Team; the founders and lead developers of V-ID and Antum ID; and Vertbase Founders, Justin Seidl and Stuart Menzies.

Stefania Barbaglio, official PR for DigiByte commented: “Block 30 is a revolutionary tool to accelerate the development of tokenised asset trading. The DigiByte team and community are very much open to co-operation with valuable new projects that can help build a more transparent and decentralised financial system, and Block 30 is one of them.”

“The excitement and pace of this new asset class has led to the need to work backwards into traditional fundamentals like market indexes, tokenized index funds and more “one-click” interoperability between customer marketplaces, digital wallets and investment products’, said BLOCK 30 Labs CEO, Brian McLaren Foote.

We’re working at BLOCK 30 Labs to solve that — and having DigiByte and DGB Assets as a strategic technology partners “under the hood” is an enormous win for us on delivering product-market-fit for our clients and exchanges.

“If you look at the core tech + specs of Bitcoin, Litecoin + Ethereum, there are so many features and benefits to the DigiByte offering that are not yet reflected in its market cap and global adoption. Our goal is to help drive that change forward to the benefit of consumers, merchants + Fortune 500 enterprise.”

“The opportunities for DigiAssets are limitless”: DigiByte looks into developing the most secure digital identity platform

In the latest Financial Fox interview, DigiByte ambassador Josiah Spackman makes the case for implementation of Digi ID and DigiAssets into multiple platforms ̶̶̶ including mobile banking, streaming services and social media ̶ to increase user security and data protection.

The DigiByte team’s newest developments are Digi ID and DigiAssets, two features built on the highly secure DGB platform that allows decentralised technologies to be applied to digital identity and safe management of digital assets.

One of the most prominent figures within the growing GB community, Josiah believes that the underlying structure of Digi ID can solve up to 90% of cybersecurity issues regarding user privacy and sensitive information because it requires no email or password for user login.

Digi ID automatically generates a unique identity key for different websites every time the user logs in, therefore protecting the user’s identity from being shared with third parties. A decentralised framework is user-centred because it does not rely on intermediary platforms to connect users and services and prevents interaction and data sharing across different platforms.

Worries about user privacy and data breaches are increasingly taking over the news. Governments and users alike are calling for more accountability from social media and tech companies to handle personal information more securely. Facebook, for example, is close to being fined by the Federal Trade Commission because it failed to protect users’ data.

As the Internet of Things and Big Data continue to grow, hyper connectivity also means increased vulnerability to data breaches. Storing users’ information on centralised databases creates the biggest vulnerability to hacks and data breaches. The current system, which is extensively supported by tech giants such as Facebook, Google and YouTube, acts as a catalyst for single points of failure.

Recent data from the FT shows that in Britain, the number of mobile transactions is increasing, with mobile shopping figures spending surpassing those at shopping centres. Tech giant Amazon is the most popular online choice. As the trend is set to keep spreading, solutions as to how minimise risks to banking platforms become more valuable.

“The opportunities for DigiAssets are limitless,” says Josiah. Cryptocurrencies such as DigiByte can be integrated with other existing platforms, including banking, to maximise cybersecurity measures.

The real value of DGB, and cryptocurrencies in general, is that they will not replace traditional fiat currencies, but instead help improve security and practices in the current financial market environment. Embracing blockchain technology is a necessary step for banks to keep their services up to date.

Stefania Barbaglio, director at Cassiopeia Services and official DigiByte PR comments: “For a while, cryptocurrencies were seen as a threat to the future of banks and financial institutions. However, with developments such as Digi ID, we see that the future lies in the integration between traditional banking and decentralised technologies.

“They complement each other to build a better and safer financial environment for users. The true value of DigiByte is not in its currency and market value, it is in its strong use case and multiple applications.”

The DGB community can expect more news and updates on DGB projects to be released during the first global DigiByte Summit, taking place in Amsterdam on 19th April 2019. The theme of the Summit is ‘The Power of Decentralisation’ and its agenda will expand on the multitude of possibilities and uses enabled by decentralised technologies.

Digibyte’s 5-year journey and what lies ahead

DigiByte’s 5-year journey and what lies ahead

On January 10th, DigiByte celebrated its 5th anniversary and completed 8.000.000 blocks and has become the largest, fastest and most secure blockchain in current existence. DigiByte has a history of constant improvement, living up to its motto of the forward-thinking coin.

Over its 5-year journey, DigiByte has repeatedly improved, setting itself apart from other cryptocurrencies with multiple blockchain firsts such as SegWit, MulitAlgo Mining and DigiShield.

“I’d argue that the DigiByte we have today is the most advanced blockchain in the world , with the most steadfast secure set up,” said DigiByte founder Jared Tate in a reflection of the coin’s five years of development.

DigiByte has one of the strongest use cases in the cryptocurrency market: DGB can support over 48 million transactions a day: 10 times the current transaction capacity of the top 50 blockchains by market cap.

Over recent months, we have seen significant progression for DigiByte, such as the implementation of ASIC Protection for Next-Generation Blockchain Mining to further decentralise the DGB network, as well as the listing on Bitfinex, one of the largest and most important crypto exchanges.

Strong community

Throughout these five years, DigiByte has attracted more and more followers because of its genuine intention to create a financial system centered around people and social value. The community-driven effort and the tremendous faith that all those involved in DGB have in the project are the key factors that make DGB so unique and compelling.

DigiByte today has one of the most connected and engaging communities in the crypto space. DGB followers have set up foundations and networks to spread the word about the mass adoption potential of DigiByte.

Last November, DigiByte enthusiasts based in the UK and Europe had the chance to meet each other for the first time and talk to Jared himself at the first UK DigiByte Event,held in central London.

Decentralisation at the heart of DigiByte

More than a cryptocurrency, DigiByte offers the most reliable blockchain structure to support transactions at an uninterrupted global level.

In fact, the ultimate objective for DigiByte is to re-build the infrastructure of the internet today. Founder Jared Tate believes that an efficient blockchain can solve 90–95% of the security vulnerabilities in the internet today. The centralised databases which support the current system, such as Facebook, Google and YouTube, act as a catalyst for single points of failure. When all the valuable information is stored in one single place, vulnerabilities to hacks and breaches increase, as well as allowing surveillance and data control from central institutions.

The solution to fix the current system would, therefore, be to build a decentralised architecture for the internet, supported by sophisticated and advanced blockchain structures. A decentralised framework is user-centered, not relying on intermediary platforms to connect users and services.

In order to support this new internet model, DigiByte is built in 3 blockchain layers:

- Applications layer: The top layer of DGB to be used in everyday, real-world applications, such as DApps and Smart Contracts

- Digital Asset Layer/ Public Ledger Layer: The layer in which all DGB transactions are stored in an immutable public ledger, providing maximum security.

  • Core Protocol Layer: The bottom layers, made of decentralised nodes across the planet, where all communication and operation procedures occur.

What’s next?

The DGB community has plenty to look forward to into the near future. The first global DigiByte Summit will take place in Amsterdam on 19th April 2019. The theme of the Summit is ‘The Power of Decentralisation’ and its agenda will expand on the multitude of possibilities and uses enabled by decentralised technologies.

Stefania Barbaglio, Director at Cassiopeia Services — official PR for DigiByte commented: “Cassiopeia is thrilled to be organising and hosting the first ever DigiByte Summit next April. DigiByte represents the true power of decentralised technologies: It offers top security, performs transactions faster than any other crypto and has one of the strongest use cases in the crypto market. Blockchain technology has unlocked a new era where decentralised networks and markets empower individuals and change society and the global economy.”

Registrations are open to DigiByte Global Summit here

In the long-run, DGB investors can be cheerful as crypto analysts say that Digibyte has the potential to reach $1 as the coin develops and its features become more sophisticated over time.

More than that, we are likely to see the increasing deployment of DigiByte platform to projects such as Antum and V-ID, which power blockchain to provide verification and digital identity services.

“Without our community, DigiByte would be nothing,” says DGB founder Jared Tate at the first UK…

“Without our community, DigiByte would be nothing,” says DGB founder Jared Tate at the first UK Digibyte Event in London

Cassiopeia is thrilled to share the success of the first ever kind of exclusive DGB event in the UK which took place in London last Sunday 18th November.

The founder Jared Tate attended the reception to give DGB community a first-hand insight into his vision and DGB future. In Jared’s own words, he conceived the idea of DGB as an improvement over the Bitcoin protocol. “The main difference between bitcoin and DBG is in the very origin of their blockchain: DGB’s genesis block was created keeping in mind the safety and privacy of online customer data.”

DigiByte is a forward-thinking coin: DGB had no ICO or pre-mining. It is largely decentralized, which means full user autonomy. DGB has one of the strongest user cases in the cryptocurrency market: DGB can support over 48 million transactions a day –10 times the current transaction capacity of the top 50 blockchains by market cap. DigiByte can handle the expected transactions from several million users instantly, with no changes needed to the existing blockchain. The DGB platform can also support arbitrages and fund remittances.

Five years since the inception of the coin, Jared feels ‘exciting overwhelmed and very happy’ by the support and strength of the DGB community.

The community-driven effort and the tremendous faith that Jared has in the people supporting his project are the key factors that make DGB so unique and compelling. So much it is true that Jared says one of DGB’s leading developers is someone who he has never met but because of trust his vision and idea.

The potential of DGB as a mass-adopted cryptocurrency lays on its strong cybersecurity feature — and the deployment of blockchain technology to address the security flaws online.

Jared thinks that the internet, as it is today, is fundamentally broken. The centralised databases which currently support the system act as a catalyst for single points of failure. Thus, what DGB has intended to and continued to strive to achieve is to provide an utterly decentralised platform which is efficient, fast and secure.

One of the major updates of DigiByte is the improvement of one of its five mining algorithms that changes itself every 10 days. This has increased the security of the network by making it hard for coders and developers to guess the sequence and manipulate the blockchain.

When asked about his vision for DGB, Jared highlighted the importance of ‘Digi assets’, a second layer is built on top of the DGB blockchain. The Digi assets promise to be a revolution in the field of data privacy and security. Some of the sectors which is set to revamp are the health care system, real estate, politics, as well as improving payment and remittance systems.

Another special guest was DANIEL SKOWRONSKI Co-Founder and CEO of DX. Exchange. DX is the first fully EU regulated, complete crypto community that allows institutions and individuals to trade cryptocurrencies with fiat. Having years of experience trading on the financial market, Daniel is building DX Exchange on the Nasdaq’s leading matching technology.

From DigiByte’s perspective, the listed on DX exchange is a big milestone. “I’m very excited to bring DigiByte into DX Exchange. I believe the coin has a great future,” said Daniel to DGB investors.

The event was successful not only because all the investors were so engrossed in Jared’s insights but also because this was the first time in the UK that DGB enthusiasts could meet one another. Apart from founder Jared Tate, other special guests included Steem blockchain ambassador Stephen Kendal and the founder members of the DigiByte Awareness Team.

The interaction between investors was friendly and energetic. There were plenty of questions and raised between the guests to be answered by Jared and much knowledge was shared among the DGB community. In an interactive way of displaying the peer to peer transaction of Digicoins, Deano from the DigiByte Awareness Team purchased the DGB socks from another DGB investor by transferring him 100 DGB instantly and in real time.

The atmosphere reflected the true spirit of DGB: open, transparent, engageing. While the coin continues to strive towards excellence and improve its protocol, we can see that its ideology remains the same — and this is what it makes DGB so powerful and game-changing.

Digibyte Blockis a technology for the people, by the people.

DigiByte strengthens decentralisation feature as UK gears up for first DGB meet up

Earlier this month, Digibyte (DGB) team announced ASIC Protection for Next-Generation Blockchain Mining with a view to decentralising its network. This also means increased protection and security.

The forward-thinking DGB is one of the very few small-scale coins seeking to grow its outreach and expansion programme envisioning mass adoption.

DGB platform announcement

Just a few days earlier, DGB became listed on Bitfinex, one of the largest and most important crypto exchanges. The listing endorses the long-term perspective of DGB and increases awareness around the coin, potentially bringing about positive implications on its value and trading. Often, when a crypto lists on a big exchange, it tends to bump.

According to crypto analysts, Digibyte has the potential of reaching $1 as the coin develops and its features become more sophisticated. DigiByte boasts the longest blockchain and its structure makes it cross-compatible with any other blockchain.

“The beauty of decentralisation is that you can do anything with it,” said Jared Tate, founder of DGB, who believes the world is on the verge of a new internet structure made possible by decentralised networks. He hopes DGB will be a key player in this new decentralised era, enabling users to have full control of their digital assets, finally ditching centralised institutions and middlemen.

Blockchain is a worldwide phenomenon. We’re at a point where everyone has realised that this technology is not going away; it is a paradigm shift in computer science and the architecture of the internet.“

Why invest in DGB? One of the strongest use cases in crypto

Digibyte is the ideal coin for those looking for long-term prospects. The coin is backed by a strong team and a very faithful community.

Launched in 2018, the Digibyte Awareness Team was born from a community-led effort to increase education and awareness about the power of Digibyte and blockchain.

Compared to other tokens, DGB offers multiple advantages, with a stronger user case: DGB can support over 48 million transactions a day — 10 times the current transaction capacity of the top 50 blockchains by market cap. DigiByte can handle the expected transactions from several million users instantly, with no changes needed to the existing blockchain. The DGB platform can also support arbitrages and fund remittances. Furthermore, Digibyte has a strong case for low transaction fees when compared with other crypto players.

DGB’s use case has showed significant improvement over the last year. Throughout 2018, the coin has been adopted as an alternative currency for many transactions in Venezuela, further proving the point of mass adoption. On top of that, platforms such as Antum are now using Digibyte for cybersecurity. The use cases keep adding value to DGB, and with time, we will perhaps see a number of businesses building on top of the Digibyte (DGB) blockchain.

Countdown to the first DGB gathering in the UK: November 18th

New developments within the DGB space are coming in just a few days to the UK’s first ever DGB event, taking place in London next Sunday. Investors and supporters will have the chance to meet Jared, the ’DigiMan’, talk to him face to face and hear about Digibyte’s news and his next plans. Other special guests include well-known Steemit ambassador Stephen Kendal and ‘Deano Digi’, joint founder of DGBAT, the DGB Awareness Team.

“We are introducing an innovative approach to crypto communities, bringing reality and personal relationships into a world where most interactions only take place online and a great deal of projects in this space are untrustworthy and illegitimate,” said Stefania Barbaglio, founder of Cassiopeia and organiser of the gathering.

“Digibyte was one of the first crypto coins to hit the market in the pre-ICO days of 2014 and since then has been growing organically, creating one of the largest and strongest online communities. We want more people in the UK to meet this community and understand that the world is moving in a new direction,” she added.

Cassiopeia looks forward to meeting Jared Tate and all of the DigiByte Community on Sunday 18th November in Central London for a unique and epic event. Only a few places left. More info on the event and registration form can be found here.

The power of crypto community: The First UK DigiByte Event is on

Cassiopeia Services, the leading blockchain PR agency, is thrilled to host the first DigiByte event in the UK on November 18th in Central London. The founder of Digibyte blockchain Jared Tate will be attending on his way back to the US from Norway, where he will be presenting at the CryptoFinance Conference in Oslo.

DGB followers, investors and supporters will have the unique opportunity to meet Jared, aka DigiMan, face to face and hear from him about DigiByte’s news and his next plans.

Other special guests include well-known Steemit ambassador Stephen Kendal and ‘Deano Digi’, joint founder of DGBAT, the DGB Awareness Team.

We are proud to ‘make things happen’ in the crypto space: “We are introducing an innovative approach to crypto communities, bringing reality and personal relationships into a world where most interactions only take place online and a great deal of projects in this space are untrustworthy and illegitimate,” said Stefania Barbaglio, founder of Cassiopeia.

“Why do we support DigiByte? It was one of the first crypto coins to hit the market in the pre-ICO days of 2014 and since then has been growing organically, creating one of the largest and strongest online communities. We want more people in the UK to meet this community and understand that the world is moving in a new direction,” she added.

Digibyte (DGB) is a true grassroots coin. It is largely decentralised, which means full user autonomy, and has a strong use case: It is much 40 times faster than Bitcoin, for example, and transactions cost a lot less. DigiByte blocks occur on the network every 15 seconds, making DigiByte the fastest UTXO blockchain in the world today with one of the lowest fees.

It is also more secure as transactions, mining and blockchain distribution are as decentralised as possible. Because of its speed, DigiByte boasts the longest blockchain and its structure makes it cross-compatible with any other blockchain.

Digibyte ranks within the top 40 crypto coins by Market Cap (35th as we write today) according to coin marketcap, and predictions from crypto experts show that DGB has a 132% growth potential by the end of the year.

But what makes DGB so unique? The power of decentralization.

“The beauty of decentralisation is that you can do multiple things with it. Blockchain is a paradigm shift in the architecture of the internet,” said DigiByte founder Jared Tate in an interview with Stefania on Financial Fox TV Show.

A decentralised asset like blockchain can address the vulnerabilities in the current architecture of the internet. Decentralisation empowers individuals to use the technology for their needs and projects. Because of its strong use case, DGB is coin with a bright future: it aims to provide feasible and effective solutions to systems that are heavily centralized and address the structural flaws in the internet to build an environment where participants are sovereign.

As Jared recognized, there is a level of concern about the current hype around ICOs, as the ICO market can be overestimated at the times, with many coins failing to succeed and provide returns. However, the projects which do survive are more user-friendly and have greater ability to develop and scale, like DGB. Cryptocurrencies like DGB, for example, show that it is possible to create a financial system that is detached from political and economic factors, and international currency fluctuation.

The loyal and supportive DGB community proved this: the DGB Foundation designed the ‘Venezuela Project’ and chose Venezuela to run a real-life experiment in mass cryptocurrency adoption applying blockchain to development causes, education and outreach.

‘Blockchain is a worldwide phenomenon. We’re at the point where everyone has realised that this technology is not going away; it is a paradigm shift in computer science and the architecture of the internet,’ says the DigiByte founder.

Cassiopeia looks forward to meeting Jared Tate and all of the DigiByte Community on Sunday 18th November in Central London for a unique and epic event. This is a private event: entry is granted via registration only. More info on the event and registration form can be found here.

Digibyte: Designing a universal crypto coin

Created in 2014 by Jared Tate, Digibyte (DGB) is a token like few others in the crypto market. DGB is designed to be mass-adopted, its strengths lay exactly in those areas which have proved to be problematic for other major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.

Unlike other coins, DGB had no ICO or pre-mining. It is largely decentralized, which means full user autonomy. Founder Jared Tate has already made it clear that DGB was not intended to be only a form of payment, but instead a highly secure and user-friendly crypto coin.

Compared to other tokens, DGB offers multiple advantages, with a stronger user case: DGB can support over 48 million transactions a day –10 times the current transaction capacity of the top 50 blockchains by market cap. DigiByte can handle the expected transactions from several million users instantly, with no changes needed to the existing blockchain. The DGB platform can also support arbitrages and fund remittances.

Furthermore, Digibyte has a strong case for low transaction fees when compared with other players in crypto players.

Despite these advantages, DGB’s unique selling point is its security angle. Digibyte was one of the first platforms to activate Segwit, even before Bitcoin, which had over 230000 installs. DGB’s security system is so complete that there are more than 20 cryptos currently using DGB DigiShield security feature.

Digibyte is aiming to provide cybersecurity for IoT and AI devices, making DGB a leading cryptocurrency, combining Artificial Intelligence alongside its existing Blockchain technology. Projects which are able to develop a blockchain network securing these devices have the potential to grow in value and adoption in the next years.

Digibyte is also attractive from an investment point of view. DGB is one of the favourite altcoins for speculative trading in 2018. Predictions form crypto experts show that DGB has a 42% growth potential by September, and a 132% by the end of the year. It is said that DGB is hugely undervalued at moment “with realistic chances of growing beyond 600%,” according to Crypto Globalist.

All the features — and the promise of mass adoption — make DGB the ideal option for someone looking into investing in a crypto coin with high-return potential within 5 to 10 years.

The Venezuela Crypto Project: How to make cryptocurrencies

Digibyte Foundation was created in 2017 with the aim of applying blockchain to development causes, education and outreach. One of their first missions is to roll out The Venezuela Crypto Project, an ambitious campaign where the DGB Foundation has chosen Venezuela to run a real-life experiment in mass adoption of cryptocurrencies.

DGB has one of the biggest and strongest online communities. DGB followers firmly believe in the future growth of the coin and its ‘humanitarian’ angle: “I want us as a community to show that we’re not going to shy away from a little bit of charity and goodwill, just because cryptocurrency has been in a bear market lately,” says Josiah Spackman, from the Digibyte Foundation.

Their ‘Venezuela Crypto Project’ aims to provide 2 weeks’worth of payment in crypto coin to 300,000 people in the country to show that it is possible to untie economics and finance from politics, and prevent that economic chaos from descending amid political crisis. Mass adoption of cryptocurrencies is the way towards this.

“The project will benefit the population at large, having their minimal wealth and earnings

stored in something that will retain most of its value, even as international values

fluctuate. Cryptocurrency was chosen rather than other forms of aid, due to the relief it offers from poverty, while at the same time allowing the Venezuelan people to attempt to return their lives to normal. Regular charity is a short-term stop-gap measure, whereas replacing the now worthless Venezuelan Bolívar allows the people to take control of their own finances,” says the Digibyte Foundation’s mission statement.

For the project to succeed, DGB is addressing hindrances such as language barriers by providing services in Spanish, developing a mobile wallet that supports both Android and iOS systems, and extremely low transaction fees.

DBG wants to prove that crypto can create a financial system that is detached from political and economic factors, and international currency fluctuation.

Digibyte founder Jared Tate will be under the spotlight at the next Financial Fox. He will make the case for DGB mass adoption and tell us how cryptocurrencies can re-shape financial systems across the world. Send questions to Stefania@cassiopeia-ltd.com
