Healthcare Company NHCT Bringing Wellness and Total Health to the Blockchain via Token Sale

Health, as they say, is wealth. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much to bring either down. Recently, managing one’s health has become the focus of a generation living in a fast-paced world. Award-winning wellness platform, NanoHealthCareToken (NHCT), has announced the development of a blockchain-powered ecosystem to tackle the problem.

Prevention is Better than Cure

With offices in India and the Cayman Islands, NHCT is bringing wellness and preventive solutions addressing the systemic issues plaguing current healthcare treatment through blockchain technology. The 2014 winner of the prestigious HULT prize, NHCT is slated to raise $9 million USD (hard cap) by the 15th of December, 2018, through a crowdsale event. There will be pre and main token sales which will be geared at raising funds towards the further development, enhancement, and adoption of its existing healthcare app. The app can be downloaded on the Google Play Store and iOS App Store

NHCT’s crowdsale will uniquely feature guaranteed capital protection for contributions over $100,000 USD. These contributions will be secured against equity backing, which will safeguard it. The token presale starts on October 1, 2018, rewarding all contributions with a generous 35% bonus. 350 million tokens will be available for contributors during both events.

Built on a philosophy of preventive, rather than reactive, treatment for health care, NHCT is addressing the high costs of the current medical care system due to data fragmentation, security, and accessibility. Since winning the HULT prize and receiving a seed funding of $1 million, NHCT has dedicated itself to creating a globally accessible, decentralized health and wellness ecosystem.

NHCT is led by its visionary founder and alumnus of IIT Bombay and ISB Hyderabad, Manish Ranjan, who expounded on NHCT’s mission:

“There are a lot of inefficiencies in the way healthcare is managed. The user data is not all in one place, is prone to security issues like hacking and above all the accuracy is a big challenge for both the payers and providers. Our idea is to gamify the entire system by using tokens. We incentivize users to stay healthy via tokens that can be redeemed to avail services like gym, wellness, lab tests among others; while payers and providers get the advantage of accurate data & lesser claims. We are trying to make the entire ecosystem efficient.”

NanoHealth has been instrumental in delivering coordinated and continuous care for 75,000 users through “health coaches.” Health coaches are highly skilled and trained medical staff providing both personalized care and authenticating data for an increased level of adherence amongst users.

Nagarjuna Vangala, CTO of the company with over two decades in managing enterprise-scale applications, had this to say:

“Blockchain is a natural fit for what we are trying to achieve at NHCT. Its inherent security & decentralization is perfect for correcting what ails the healthcare of today. The idea is to give the control of data back to where it belongs: to the users.”

Wikipedia Gets Some Competition From Co-Founder’s Blockchain Fork

Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger’s new blockchain based innovation could rival his world-renowned brainchild.

Speaking from this year’s Malta Delta Summit where Prime Minister Joseph Muscat was promoting blockchain technology, Sanger explained the benefits of his latest knowledge database.

Wikipedia, which grew out of a web-based encyclopedia, Nupedia and co-founded by Jimmy Wales, became the benchmark in open-source, collaborative encyclopedias. It also gained Sanger a name as a critic of his own creation. He called for more accountability and academic quality to be brought to articles which appeared on the website, leaving in 2002 and then later launching Citizendium in a quest to deliver greater accuracy and credibility.

Sanger discussed Everipedia, which forked from Wiki in 2015. Speaking at the summit he commented: “Thanks to new technology, it’s now possible to move beyond Wikipedia just as we moved beyond Britannica almost two decades ago.”

Sanger spoke of Wikipedia’s shortage of content contributors, despite it being the envy of any website with 18 billion views per month. He argued that a major issue for Wiki had been tasking 12,000 editors to check the contributions of 129,672 active writers and mentioned that an incentive scheme could encourage a higher quality work.

The forked site Everipedia will operate in a different way by rewarding contributors with its own token called “IQ” which can be traded on crypto exchanges, thereby incentivizing quality content creation. Another advantage is that the site can’t be banned by overseas governments due to its decentralized nature.

Malta’s prime minister Joseph Muscat was also speaking at the conference, suggesting that the pro-crypto government’s next target after making Malta the envy of Europe, would be the focus on AI technology, after building the strong foundations of a regulatory framework for blockchain and cryptocurrency. To blockchain developers he said of the “the next big idea”:

“We want to know how we can help and how we can make that happen.”

Bill Clinton Waxes Lyrical on Crypto

Ex-US President Bill Clinton, speaking at Ripple’s annual Swell conference in San Francisco, has praised the rise of blockchain technology.

From appearing as a moderator on a panel of world leaders at the Bloomberg Global Business Forum to keynote speaker at a cryptocurrency and blockchain conference, the ex-US president appears to be everywhere at the moment.

It has not escaped crypto pundits’ attention that Ripple is not shy when it comes to attracting big names with little knowledge of crypto to promote its causes. Actor and investor Ashton Kutcher has already donated USD 4 million worth of XRP to the Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund on live TV and Snoop Dogg made his appearance at the Consensus NY event early this year, again sponsored by Ripple.

As a politician and leader he was known for his drafting of policy for emerging technologies, so given this, it probably should come as no surprise. His technological swansong was the signing of the historic Telecommunications Act of 1996 which really pre-empted the age of the internet. Given these proven attributes in the field of new technologies, Ripple reputedly paid him up to USD 500,000 for his keynote address, according to media reports.

The topics of the event including foreign policy, blockchain, cryptocurrency and banking. Clinton praised emerging technologies such as blockchain in his address and commented the future for DLT had huge implications for the disruption of the global status quo. In a discussion with his formal economics adviser Gene Sperling, he commented:

“This whole blockchain deal has the potential it does only because it is applicable across national borders [and] income groups. The permutations and possibilities are staggeringly great… We could ruin it all by negative identity politics and economic and social policy. You think about that.”

Clinton, a Bitcoin holder since 2016, after receiving a gift from venture capitalist and tech entrepreneur Matthew Roszak, said that economic and social policy “work better as sum games”.

Miracle Tele Announces Telecom Revolution on the Blockchain

Miracle Tele, a Czech Republic-based mobile network company, has announced the launch of the token sale for its blockchain solution focused on reshaping the telecom industry and empowering users. The token sale for Miracle Tele, which is set to marry two of the most exciting tech industries, telecommunications and the blockchain, offers the opportunity to participate in the development of a rewarding and inclusive ecosystem for telecom users.

Miracle Tele’s ecosystem goes beyond mobile network and communication services. The company will issue a multi-currency crypto wallet supporting its TELE utility tokens. The service will also support ERC20 tokens and prepaid crypto debit cards so that users can physically spend their tokens at merchant services, either online or off.

A Miracle on the Blockchain

Mobile device ownership continues to grow rapidly with forecasts predicting ownership to reach 5 billion by 2019. In 2016, an estimated 62.9 percent of the world’s population owned a mobile device. This explosive growth has turned mobile services into a multi-billion dollar industry. Yet it is still rife with stiff competition and a reputation for overpricing services and under-delivering due to the cost of operating, maintaining, and repairing physical infrastructure.

Miracle Tele is unfettered by such operational shackles. Being a virtual network provider relying on blockchain technology to deliver cheap mobile services, Miracle Tele is giving back to the billions of mobile networks users all over the globe. Without traditional telecom infrastructure, Miracle Tele is set to disrupt the communications industry through a decentralized mobile network spanning 163 countries.

The Miracle Tele solution provides a mobile virtual network (MVN) on the blockchain, which enables all calls to be treated as local calls. This mean zero roaming fees and all incoming calls are free. However, Miracle Tele’s data rate will be charged based on each country, while outgoing calls are pegged at the flat rate of EUR 0.20.

Other key benefits of Miracle Tele’s solution include: a pay-as-you-go service with zero paper trail and utmost privacy; virtual numbers from any country in the world for only EUR 2- 3 and a monthly fee cost of EUR .50-1.50; free service access to WhatsApp and Telegram on the network (in development); multi-currency top-ups in both fiat and popular cryptocurrencies; and a groundbreaking reward system that distributes biweekly payments of up to 40% of the company’s net profit, payable in either fiat or cryptocurrency.

TELE for Blockchain

Miracle Tele will be moving from the Ethereum blockchain to its own proprietary blockchain in 2020 for even cheaper access to services. To support the development of this blockchain, the platform has minted 150,000,000 TELE tokens for its ongoing crowdsale. Contributors can acquire TELE Tokens at EUR 0.10 with no minimum or maximum limit to contribution. Miracle Tele will also airdrop TELE tokens for the whole of next month while running a social media bounty campaign.

TELE, as a utility token, is the exclusive payment instrument for airtime and data on the platform. As a token backed by a real company with a working product, TELE is less likely to affected by the crypto market’s infamous volatility.

Name and address are only required when purchasing a Miracle Tele SIM card. Data packages are independent and users can browse the internet without needing one.

Trezor One Hardware Wallet Now Affordable for Everyone

Trezor has discounted the price of the Trezor One by 23% to EUR 69, making it affordable for the masses. This is the first time in history that a top of the line Trezor hardware wallet has been so cheap. The Trezor One is designed to bring confidence and security to the crypto space and is an essential tool for safely securing Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The Trezor One can hold more than 500 different types of cryptocurrencies.

Hardware wallets are used to store Bitcoin and other crypto private keys in a safe offline location. It is essential to store private keys somewhere besides your computer, so if your computer gets compromised you don’t lose your funds. Storing private keys offline is especially important, so the private keys won’t be vulnerable to hacking.

The Trezor One includes multiple layers of security, including PIN entry, passphrase entry, encrypted storage of the passphrase on the cloud so you can’t lose the passphrase, and 2 factor authentication (2-FA) so you have to get a code from your phone or computer before logging in to the wallet, which is an extra layer of security that ensures only you can access the private keys in the wallet. Additionally, Trezor One offers premium support, just in case there are any issues. Considering how much money the Trezor One can save in a situation where your computer is compromised, it is well worth the EUR 69 for such top-notch crypto wallet security.

The Trezor One has a micro USB which is easy to connect to your computer or phone and has an easy to use display. However, the Trezor One must be connected to a computer or phone to work since it doesn’t have a keypad. An even better option is the Trezor Model T, which has a fully functional touchscreen display and doesn’t require any connection to a computer or phone to work, although, obviously it still needs internet to connect to the blockchain.

The Trezor Model T costs EUR 149 and is a better option for crypto users who can afford it since it is self-sufficient versus needing a phone or computer to enter in account info and make transactions. That being said, the Trezor One is being continuously updated with new features, even after you purchase it. One of the most significant changes happening is that the Trezor One will soon have the Trezor Core Platform, the same operating system as the Trezor Model T.

Regardless, if you get the Trezor One or Trezor Model T, they are both excellent options since they isolate your private keys and keep them offline. The private keys do not leave your device and are not stored anywhere else, making it like an impenetrable crypto vault.

This makes the UNLOCK Conference in Dubai critically important for planning the future of blockchain and crypto in the MENA and GCC. Dubai’s neighbor, Bahrain, is already experimenting with FinTech sandboxes for the launch of crypto exchanges and startups.

The themes of the 2019 UNLOCK Conference include initial coin offerings (ICOs), cryptocurrencies, the future of crypto exchanges in an increasingly regulated world, scalability and interoperability of blockchain, governments and blockchain, investing in blockchain, utilization of blockchain for supply chains and trade, tokenization of everything in a futuristic digital economy, artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain, blockchain anonymity, blockchain payments, blockchain in the transportation and energy industries, blockchain for telecommunications, blockchain for cloud services, and identity verification on blockchains.

The registration for the UNLOCK Conference 2019 is open, and the early bird special of USD 800 per ticket is running until 15 October 2018.
