Update on Pryze.com Sweepstakes

Pryze + Datarella Sweepstakes for early adopters

A short update about our XSC token sweepstakes with Pryze.com

Over the course of February as many of you know, we partnered with Pryze to offer an ethereum-based provably fair sweepstakes where blockchain early adopters can apply for a chance to win up to 100 XSC Tokens.

A winner of this giveaway has been drawn by Pryze, but not yet verified their claim to the prize. If they don’t do so within the next 24 hours Pryze will draw a new winner from the entry pool. The winner will have one week to respond.

Once the winner is confirmed we will distribute the grand prize to the sweepstakes winner and draw 99 runner ups who will also receive a smaller distribution. A big thank you to everyone who took part in the Pryze campaign! We’ll keep you informed. The promised tokens are coming!

Phishing Attempt Using CrowdstartCoin Fake Twitter Account

CrowdstartCoin

Yesterday, it was brought to our attention that someone hs been impersonating our @CrowdstartCoin Twitter account using the handle „Crowdstart_Coin“ (with an underscore).

This fake account is ha,rd to distinguish from the real one since it‘s not only using a very similar heder but has been copying some of our original tweets. This account asks you for visiting a google form on which you are asked to send Ether to a specific address.

We at CrowdstartCapital would never ask anyone to send Ether to a soecufic address. We distribute our CrowdstartCoin to developers who add valuable code to the blockchin ecosystem.

Please be careful with all things crypto – especially if someone asksyou to provide your private key or to send crypto to an address.

CrowdstartCoin XSC Token Listing – No Token Sale

CrowdstartCoin

There is no ICO token sale of Crowdstart Capital.

Since there are some ICO announcement sites that have not updated their information about Crowdstart Capital and CrowdstartCoin XSC, yet, here again, the update we originally published in November 2017:

In November 2107, we decided not to ICO but to distribute our CrowdstartCoins XSC to developers who add valuable code to the development of the blockchain ecosystem. We started to issue CrowdstartCoins to IOTA developers during our Gdansk hackathon in November 2017. As of today, we have issued about 500,000 CrowdstartCoins XSC to blockchain developers. You can keep track of the distribution on etherscan.

For the time being, we at Crowdstart Capital decide upon the distribution of CrowdstartCoins XSC. In the next step, we’ll use a semi-automated smart contract based process for issuing XSC. In a third phase, we will use a liquid feedback mechanism and invite blockchain community members to democratically decide upon who will be rewarded with CrowdstartCoins XSC.

Since December, CrowdstartCoins (XSC) have been listed on EtherDelta, since January on IDEX, two decentralized crypto exchanges (DEX). More exchanges will follow. You can manage CrowdstartCoins XSC with several wallets supporting the ERC20 standard, such as Lykke, myEtherWallet, or Blockwallet.

That said, there are two options to get hold of CrowdstartCoins XSC:

  • You are a developer and you feel eligible to receive XSC. Please fill out this form.
  • You visit one of the above-mentioned DEXes and trade XSC there.

We can’t predict future rates of CrowdstartCoin XSC. However, based on a very broad game-theoretical scenario, CrowdstartCoin XSc could reach a rate of somewhere between $1 – $10 in 2018.

If you have any questions regarding CrowdstartCoin XSC you may follow us on Twitter join our Slack or Telegram and we will be happy to have a conversation.

Cryptoexchange IDEX officially lists CrowdstartCoin XSC

As of 17  January 2018, CrowdstartCoin XSC is tradable on IDEX, a decentralized cryptoexchange.

We are very happy that, after EtherDelta, our blockchain incentive tokens have been officially listed on IDEX. From today, blockchain developers can even better grow the value of their own token that serves as a reward for contributing to the evolution of the blockchain ecosystem!

Don‘t waste your time, developers: Go, claim your XSC – and trade them!

CrowdstartCoins XSC Now For Early Adopters With Pryze.com

Pryze + Datarella Sweepstakes for early adopters

For a limited time, early adopters now have the opportunity to win XSC! In collaboration with pryze.com, we’re offering a chance to win up to 100 XSC Tokens.

If you have transacted recently on any of the decentral exchanges you’ll notice that the user interfaces sometimes leave something to be desired and liquidity is often an issue.

CSC mainly focuses primarily on incentivizing blockchain developers, but XSC is meant to be the token for the blockchain ecosystem. One important element needed to meet our goal of advancing the development of industrial blockchain applications is the availability of interested early adopters willing to test new technology such as decentral exchanges and give feedback about the user experience. Everyone in the blockchain ecosystem has something to contribute.

To this end today we are pleased to announce a sweepstakes event for blockchain early adopters. As a blockchain early adopter you are also a valuable part of the development process. We want to reward and incentivize your participation and contribution to the ecosystem.

We are partnering with Pryze.com to offer an ethereum-based provably fair sweepstakes where a limited number of early adopters can apply for a chance to win up to 100 XSC Tokens (A value of 100 USD if the price of XSC reaches 1.00$). The sweepstakes will run from today until the 21st of February.

Here’s how it works.

  1. Download the sweepstakes app from Pryze.com. It is available for iOS and Android mobile devices.
  2. Register with your details and an Ethereum address where we can send your XSC.
  3. Wait and see if you are chosen!

Stay tuned for updates about this sweepstakes.  We’ll be releasing more specifics about the exact distribution of tokens very soon.

 

Safely Manage CrowdstartCoins With Lykke Wallet

Good news for CrowdstartCoin on the last business day of the year 2017: As of today, CrowdstartCoins XSC can be safely stored in and managed with the mobile Lykke Wallet.

The Lykke Wallet is a mobile application for iOS and Android and the hub of the Lykke trading ecosystem. All assets, s.a. FX, Bitcoin, Ether, Solarcoin, etc., are traded on the open-source Lykke Exchange, with immediate settlement and margin trading at zero percent commission.

CrowdstartCoins XSC can be managed in Lykke’s private wallets, along other ERC20 tokens. We are very happy to recommend Lykke Wallet to all (potential) CrowdstartCoin holders, especially because of its impressively high usability and convincing security model. Buying crypto, for instance, is ultimately easy: just deposit Fiat money using your credit card. This process takes a minute or two, and you are ready to buy crypto.

We can‘t wait to see the first trades of CrowdstartCoins – we expect them to take place in early 2018. But for now, we are more than happy that CrowdstartCoin holders can use Lykke Wallet to safely manage their XSC!

Let‘s see what 2018 will bring!

What‘s The Value Of A CrowdstartCoin?

Crowdstart Coin

We started distributing CrowdstartCoins during the Gdansk IOTA hackathon in November this year. Each member of the three winning groups received their XSC, as CrowdstartCoins are abbreviated.

Since then we have been asked what the value of a CrowdstartCoin is. As of this writing, the value of 1 CrowdstartCoin is 0. XSC is listed on EtherDelta, a decentralized cryptoexchange, and it has been traded once – but that was a test trade in order to check whether everything is working fine.

348 Developers Rewarded With CrowdstartCoins

During the first weeks of distributing CrowdstartCoins, we have focused on rewarding developers who have added valuable code to the blockchain ecosystem. We have started to send XSC to IOTA and Ethereum developers. Other blockchain technologies will follow. As of this writing, 348 developers have received their CrowdstartCoins. Considering the very reason why we created Crowdstart Capital – namely to incentivize the future development of the blockchain ecosustem at-large, and to grow the number of developers committing code – 348 developers is quite a big number.

In the first phase, the distribution of CrowdstartCoins will be at the discretion of the Crowdstart team. In the second phase, we will set up a smart-contract-based system that will pay out CrowdstartCoins according to the accepted commits. We will programmatically monitor the git repos of major projects. In the third phase, members of the blockchain community will be able to suggest projects to be included in the incentive scheme, a model known as liquid feedback. Token-based ballots will be used to enable community voting and determine which blockchain projects should be included.

CrowdstartCoin might be worth $1-$10

Now you might ask, why do we put all this energy into CrowdstartCoins when they have 0 value? The answer is simple: We expect CrowdstartCoin’s value to rise as soon as a certain threshold of coin holders has been reached and somebody starts trading her CrowdstartCoins. We haven’t communicated our expectations regarding the value of CrowdstartCoins, yet. However, when deciding upon the number of distributed CrowdstartCoins relative to the code committed to the blockchain ecosystem, we expect a CrowdstartCoin rise in value to anywhere between $1-$10, probably within the next 12 months.

Not being in possession of the crystal ball, we could be dead wrong. Since there is no reliable method of forecasting the value of a new currency, and especially one that is not backed by any kind of asset, such as gold, the US-Dollar, etc., we base our assumption on the combined anticipated circulation supply and the expectations of blockchain developers regarding their fair remuneration when committing blockchain code.

The essence of CrowdstartCoin is to reward developers for their work. In the good tradition of Jean-Baptiste Say, we think developers will figure out the right price of a CrowdstartCoin themselves, trading the coins. Despite having some flaws, over the long run Say’s law is largely true.

We certainly don’t expect CrowdstartCoin to repeat Bitcoin’s history. But, 10,000 Bitcoins buying 2 pizzas in 2010 is a story too good not to recall!
