  • ‘Instant’ creates a new and easy way to purchase tokens
  • A free and flexible way for developers to add exchange functionality to any app or website
  • 0x ‘Instant’ can help businesses add a new revenue stream by taking affiliate fees on each transaction

0x (ZRX) has revolutionized the exchange of crypto assets by introducing a simple, free and flexible way for developers to add token exchange functionality to any website or application. Following the successful launch of the second version of the 0x protocol, ‘Instant’ is an important next step. It creates a new and easy way to purchase tokens – at the press of a button a user executes a transaction with the 0x protocol taking care of the rest.

The tokenization of assets has already begun and continues to happen at an accelerating pace. The world’s value is becoming tokenized, and 0x, backed by the likes of Polychain capital, has built the tools that allow this value to flow freely. The growing number of new asset types need an evolved protocol to create the ecosystem required for both the creation and exchange of those emerging assets.

0x coinbase

With that in mind, every business in the crypto ecosystem needs exchange functionality, and 0x ‘Instant’ provides a solution to that need. Using 0x ‘Instant’ you can now buy ERC 20 and ERC 721 assets in an easy-to-use, seamless, secure interface without the need for order books or the complexity of having to wrap your head around wrapping ETH.

Exchange will be everywhere in a tokenized world and ‘Instant’ is just another step towards our vision and mission to create a world where all value can flow freely and easily.

“0x Instant provides a simple and intuitive interface that may be embedded in any website or app, allowing visitors to “1-click buy” Ethereum tokens with ease. Behind the scenes, each copy of 0x Instant pulls liquidity from a massive shared pool that is globally accessible” says Will Warren, CEO and co-founder of 0x.

0x ‘Instant’ can help businesses, such as news sites or crypto wallets for example, monetize or add a new revenue stream to their existing pipeline. Using just a few lines of code, businesses can enable users to quickly purchase a wide variety of cryptoassets while adding fees to each transaction.

Early examples already using 0x ‘Instant’ are Coinbase Wallet, Augur and CoinGecko.


‘Instant’ offers developers flexibility and customization, you have full control over the user interface – using the 0x engine you can create your own or use one of the prepackaged UIs created by the 0x team. The best news is – it is completely free to add to your site or app.

You also have full control over the assets being offered and you can choose the source of liquidity. You may have your own specific pool or you can tap into 0x’s networked liquidity. This will have the added benefit of bringing new users to the 0x ecosystem, deepening overall ecosystem liquidity by creating more transactions on the network and promoting the retention and use of tokens.

The benefits of global networked liquidity and lower overhead costs will continue to persist and will allow developers to focus on building great user experiences while 0x handles exchange functionality.

About 0x:

0x was founded by Will Warren and Amir Bandeali and wants to create a world where all assets can be tokenized and freely exchanged. It’s an open and free to use protocol that allows frictionless and decentralised peer to peer exchange of tokens and is the most widely adopted and secure protocol currently operating on the Ethereum blockchain. The 0x protocol underpins the decentralized financial system of the future, where anything of value can be tokenized and traded on public blockchains. It provides a secure and permission-less platform for developers to build decentralized applications on top of, providing liquidity and exchange functionality to any application plugging into the ecosystem. 0x itself has spawned numerous successful startups through its ecosystem, so called “relayers”, it includes Paradex which was acquired by Coinbase. 0x looks forward to powering the decentralized exchange of all security tokens by being a free, open protocol that is interoperable with all mainstream security token standards.

0x raised $24 million in August of 2017 and is backed by Polychain Capital. Former Paypal COO David Sacks is among the board of advisors.

ICON (ICX) – Whatever Happened to The Korean Ethereum? 6734

icon icx

Bitcoiner since $59BittBurger, gives us his take on the current status of the South Korean ICON project. This post is primarily about a solid uptick in community involvement, decentralized marketing, and the token side of things. For the last year and a half we had a pretty uninvolved community, while the company continued to work under the hood to build something huge.

A lot is happening right now. I feel like nobody knows about it.

It’s Happening

A lot is happening right now. I feel like nobody knows about it. It just started. Most of it. So your patience will be appreciated. But I’ve never seen so much proactivity in this project on the token-side of things before.

new larger office

  • AMBASSADOR PROGRAM: Over the last handful of weeks, the Ambassador program has begun. This program incentivizes the creation of content to promote ICON across social media and the internet. Several Ambassadors have already put out multiple articles that are getting ranked across Google and Medium, bringing attention to the project.

  • ICONSENSUS P-REPS: The number of ICONSENSUS P-REP candidates has surpassed 40 (there will only be 22 voted in) and ICON is beginning a strong marketing push to attract more teams this month, with the goal of reaching 100. Check out the candidate interviews here.

  • EXPOSURE: Some of these P-REP teams which including RHIZOMEICONation, and Ubik have already begun cranking out content, started YouTube video channels, and scrambling to get ICON on podcasts.

  • PODCASTS: Speaking of Podcasts, several investors have begun reaching out to their contacts at several different podcast and YouTube influencers. The goal is to get ICON team members on for an interview, to talk about the project and get the ICON name in front of tens of thousands of faces (or ears). Ricky and others at ICON have been excited to make themselves available for this, which makes all of us extremely grateful. I will be working to get someone on my friend Chico Crypto‘s YouTube channel soon, and a handful of podcasts are already underway for scheduling.

  • EXCHANGES: This past week, a group formed within the Telegram channel to focus entirely on reaching out to as many new exchanges as possible, and getting ICON listed on them. A Trello has been set up, and we’ve already begun making headway on this incredibly important goal.

  • BINANCE USA LISTING: With the advent of Binance USA, both the ICON team and everyone involved are aggressively pursuing assurance that ICX will be listed on the new exchange for US investors.

  • COINBASE LISTING: The same is being done for ICX being in the next couple rounds of newly added coins on Coinbase. I’ve spoken to team members at ICON who have assured me they’ve been following up on this regularly. Please download their app > Sign in > Click “View all Assets” > Then scroll down and click “Follow” on ICON. This is an important metric for Coinbase to decide what gets added next.

  • HIRING PR COMPANY: Two days ago I managed to connect Ricky Dodds (ICONS Head of Institutional Markets in their San Francisco office) to a close friend of mine who runs the PR company which took Genesis mining from nothing to a $2 Billion valuation, and got them on that 60 minutes episode a few weeks ago about Bitcoin. The mining segment in Iceland was thanks to him. Intro email was sent and the two of them have been connected to see if they’re a good fit.

  • HIRING PR COMPANY: Today, I connected Ricky to another company who runs a significantly larger Crypto-focused PR and marketing company. These guys were responsible for some of the biggest successes in Crypto, including Ethereum, NEO, Maidsafe, Qtum, Bancor, Lisk, and Augur. They also managed scaling campaigns for DASH, Ripple, Bittrex, and Kraken. They were excited as they personally know 4 of the 8 advisors listed on the ICON website, and they have an office in Seoul, South Korea in addition to Santa Monica, NYC, Las Vegas, Toronto, and San Francisco. To say I am excited to see the emails flying around today between Ricky and their team would be an understatement.

  • STAKING! 15% Staking is coming in 43 days. The ramifications of this can not be overstated. Aside from the completely speculative “claim” from some that their whale groups will stop suppressing the price at that time (which would be great, if it’s true), I expect nearly everyone to be staking their coins, completely drying up the order book and causing massive upward price pressure come September.

  • INCENTIVE PROGRAMS: I was happy to hear from a team member that several very specific plans are being put in place, after observing countless incentive programs by other projects that have resulted in price gains. The ICON team has realized the importance of creating incentive, interest, anticipation, and excitement for this token, and they’re taking steps to make it a reality for ICX.

icon partnerships

My point in writing this: A LOT is coming in the next 8 to 12 weeks. All of this is centered around recovering and catapulting the price as high as it can possibly go. ICON is seeking out the all-stars in this industry with incredibly resumes, and asking the experts for direction and input.

All of the marketing and promotion has just barely begun. Everything is at ground zero. But its finally happening. All the things we’ve been hoping for, for a year and a half.

How FUSION’s (FSN) Blockchain is Taking Over the 300 Trillion Dollar Financial Industry 3645

Blockchain technology may have an impact across numerous industries but it is poised to change the way we think about Finance in the most profound way.

The incumbent capital finance system is structured around large institutions and regulatory bodies that serve as the trust layer to ensure the security and fluidity of financial systems. But this is set to change, with blockchain technology achieving inherent trust where previously a rent-seeking intermediary was an essential and unavoidable cog in the system.

The opportunities that emerge from the Digital Economy are significant, and Fusion is going to be at the centre of this transformation. The Fusion protocol provides the infrastructure for the financial applications of the future that many businesses and institutions are looking to build.

FUSION (FSN) has three key features that elevate it above other smart contract platforms targeting blockchain finance.

  1.     A feature-rich ecosystem for modeling time-based transactions relevant to many industries, starting with debt instruments, entertainment licensing, asset rentals and more.
  2.     A fully realized interoperability and distributed custody solution that connects different on-chain and off-chain ecosystems and serves as the foundation for decentralized exchange.
  3.     A team with deep traditional finance and technology experience focused on solving real-world use-cases in a flexible and adaptive way.
