What is Bitcoin Rhodium?
Bitcoin Rhodium is a decentralized store-of-value cryptocurrency with a strong appeal for investors looking for a long-term investment in crypto securities.
Is this a Bitcoin fork?
NO. Bitcoin Rhodium is not a Bitcoin fork and uses its own unique blockchain.
Is it an open-source project?
YES. It is programmed in C# language and source code can be found here on GitLab.
When was it launched?
Mainnet launched on October 20, 2018, but the project started on December 1, 2017
Why did you decide to create Bitcoin Rhodium?
Our passion is to develop a cryptocurrency that is primarily held by investors for the long-term. We want XRC to be a niche savings account accepted by many, because of both its scarcity, but also because of its community of investors who see the long-term potential in holding a very scarce coin. Please read the White Paper and take a look at our Road Map to know more where Bitcoin Rhodium is headed. You can also check our Progress page to see the actual development.
How does Bitcoin Rhodium differ from BTC?
The main difference is that Bitcoin Rhodium’s max supply is just 2.1 million coins or one-tenth of Bitcoin’s.
What is Bitcoin Rhodium’s ticker?
Is it minable?
YES. Bitcoin Rhodium uses Proof-of-Work (PoW) system as a consensus mechanism. You can mine XRC with any compatible x13 hardware. Read our Mining Guide, choose a suitable pool on MiningPoolStats and start mining. You can calculate your profits on WhatToMine.
How fast are Bitcoin Rhodium’s transactions?
XRC has the same block interval target as BTC, which is 10 Minutes.
Is Bitcoin Rhodium a privacy coin?
Same as BTC, Bitcoin Rhodium is pseudonymous rather than anonymous, coins within a wallet is not tied to people, but rather to one or more specific keys or addresses. Thereby, XRC owners are not identifiable, but all transactions are publicly available in the blockchain. But we are planning to add more privacy features soon. To learn more about that please read the this post written by one of our devs.
Where can I get Bitcoin Rhodium?
You can buy it on multiple exchanges, acquire through mining or even get it for free if you already hold some.
On what exchanges does Bitcoin Rhodium trade?
XRC can be purchased on following exchanges: HitBTC, P2PB2B, Changelly, Bisq, Tradesatoshi, FatBTC and WhiteBIT
How can I get XRC for free?
You can get Bitcoin Rhodium for free participating in Strong Hands Program, which is one of our use cases. To get free coins all you have to do is to hold any amount of XRC on your wallet for three months. That’s all. No other requirements.
What other use cases does Bitcoin Rhodium have?
Two more use cases are: The Crypto Trinity — an efficient ecosystem together with Bitcoin and Litecoin that can facilitate users and investors with different needs and preferences. And FreeMarket ONE — tor-based Peer-2-Peer barter trading platform, anonymous marketplace to trade precious metals worldwide.
Where can I store Bitcoin Rhodium?
You can keep your coins safe in one of the following wallets: Electrum-XRC, Trezor, Full node wallet, Magnum wallet or Web wallet.
Which one of these wallets should I choose?
It depends on what platform are you and how you plan to use XRC. Hardware wallets has proven to be the most secure way to store crypto, so choose Trezor wallet for maximum security. For desktop on any major platform use Electrum-XRC. It is secure and really easy to use. Magnum wallet will give you simple access to your coins on Android (iOS app in development). Web wallet works in any browser but we recommend you to use more decentralized third-party solutions.
Are there any active bounty programs?
You can earn XRC by being Bitcoin Rhodium’s ambassador. If you’re interested in participating, please fill in this form. More info about the program on website.
Where can I find more info about the project?
Please check our official resources: Website, Discord, Twitter, Telegram, BitcoinTalk, Blog and Reddit.
Where can I check XRC price?
Main sources to keep track of Bitcoin Rhodium’s price are Blockfolio app, CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko.

Thank you for participating in the AMA session with Pundi X founder and CEO Zac Cheah.
For those of you who may have missed it, the live recording of the AMA session held last on April 12 at 10:00 am GMT+8, tackling Q1 progress and addressing questions and concerns by the community members, can be viewed here:
You may also find a summary of the Q1 progress presentation as well as the Q&A below:
Pundi X Q1 2019 Highlights
Quarterly Transaction Summary
Product Development Overview
Below is a summary of the Q&A with community members.
We are pleased to announce that the XPOS has been officially certified. It’s in fact the first blockchain based POS device that has been given the CE certificate. And with this, we will begin to accelerate to get the XPOS compliant with the different markets and increase the activation rate of the XPOS.
For example, in Dubai, we are working with the local credit bureau to apply for an approval with the local regulators using our CE Certificate as the base document. The same goes for Korea’s KC certification.
So yes, a lot of things have been moving behind the scenes and one thing that is clear is whatever we do, it is to play the long-term game. Hence, we had to make sure that we have all the relevant required certification for the XPOS before we take it to the next level of deployment.
In addition to that, we are exploring the expansion of our XPOS solution footprint by integrating the XPOS into one of the Top 2 point-of-sale manufacturers. We will share the process and details once we have completed the testing.
Regarding Thailand, we are in talks; with possible partnerships in this market. Please stay tuned.
Also in the pipeline, we are working with some non-profit organizations to provide free XPOS for their usage.
On the XWallet
We are definitely exploring the different possibilities but we are unable to elaborate more on when, or if it is happening, as this also requires more talks with the different local jurisdictions.
Q: Turkish holders would like to ask when can we partner with master / visa and integrate with XWallet?
Zac: As mentioned earlier, we have reached out to various parties that might be able to activate these services.
On Q3 to Q4 Plans
Developer ecosystem — The developer ecosystem allows traditional and tech companies to onboard themselves into the XPOS and XWallet ecosystem, such as listing of their custom tokens, advertising etc. These services will all require the usage of NPXS and NPXSXEM tokens.
Partnerships — We are likely to partner with incumbent retail chain stores payment companies, incumbent POS companies that have deep distribution network to help expand the reach of XPOS, XWallet, XPASS, etc.
Governmental level efforts — We started off with Dubai and since then, several other governments have shown interest. We see this as an opportune time to engage forward-thinking governments to build a blockchain ecosystem in their city and country.
Our Team: we will continue to invest and grow our R&D team capabilities as they represent the heart of Pundi X. If any engineer or developer is keen to help us to scale, please get in touch with us. We are actually looking for engineers as I speak.
On NPXS and Token Removal
On the QEX Fund
From what we know, they are in the midst of raising funds, book building, analyzing potential projects & companies and strengthening the portfolio for QEX. It’s an ongoing effort for this year and a very exciting one. We are extremely excited to see potential breakthrough projects that could benefit our ecosystem. And if anyone has questions or interests, please do reach out to Vic Tham and his team at QEAM.
On Function X
The Function X foundation will be announced in Q3 and hopefully it will be a pleasant surprise. We will have a solid team to grow the Function X ecosystem.
For NPXS which will be ported over to the Function X blockchain once the Function X mainnet is up and running, its utility will remain the same. Any payment-relevant services or activities on the Function X blockchain will require NPXS, which on the Function X mainnet will be tentatively called NPXSFX.

Блокчейн є не заперечно геніальним нововведенням - дітищем особистості або зібранням осіб, відомих під назвою, Накамото. Однак, з цього моменту, він перетворився на щось більш помітне, і фундаментальний запит, який кожен ставить, це: Що таке Blockchain? За допомогою надання розширених даних, які не розмножуються, інновація blockchain стала основою іншого роду мережі. Спочатку сформульована для передових грошових коштів, Bitcoin (Купити Bitcoin) технологічна мережа в даний час знаходить інші потенційні можливості для інновацій. До цього моменту абсолютна оцінка грошових коштів становить близько $ 112 млрд. США. Більше того, блокчейн може робити різні сорти передових коштів. Любіть павутину (або ваш автомобіль), ви не повинні знати як blockchain спроби використати це. Тим не менш, наявність основної інформації
про цю нову інновацію показує, чому вона розглядається як прогресивна. Таким чином, я сподіваюся, що ви оціните це, перш ніж продовжити.
Що таке проект Cloudnode v2?
Проект Cloudnode v2 впродовж багатьох років пересувався всіма відомими поліпшеннями та організаційними групами. Ми ставимо акції в усьому прямолінійність по відношенню до інвестицій в крипто активів. це, ми створили Найбільш прозору платформу хостингу та моніторингу, пропонуючи кілька додатків для криптовалют всередині H і M:
Це не просто ще один проект з білого паперу, а вже практично готова і повністю сформована екосистема з багатьма унікальними функціями і інструментами, яка ідеально підходить як для досвідчених блокових ентузіастів, так і для початківців. Екосистема включає в себе безліч рішень для хостингу та моніторингу мастерноз. На платформі Cloud Node V2 також є ігрова платформа, хмара зберігання, надійний криптовалютний гаманець і багато іншого. Все це має приємний і інтуїтивно зрозумілий інтерфейс, з яким довго не треба було займатися, щоб зрозуміти принцип роботи. Крім того, на відміну від інших послуг, ця платформа підтримує російську мову, що для мене особисто є дуже великим плюсом.
Cloud Node V2 створює команду висококваліфікованих фахівців, які вже завоювали авторитет на міжнародній арені блокчейн і дуже відомі в певних колах.
Сьогодні вони вже створили гаманець CDS App Wallet, який мені дуже сподобався, все працює дуже швидко і не замерзає навіть на моєму старому комп'ютері. Думаю, ви також оціните, принаймні, все виглядає набагато краще, ніж у відомому кожному ентузіаста crypto MEW гаманця і має більш дружній інтерфейс на російській мові.
Система CDS H & M також є готовим рішенням для запуску майстра. Він встановлюється дуже швидко, навіть для Windows 32 біт.
CDS APPНадсилайте та отримуйте CDS у простій, не складній формі та на долоні. Підвищена трансформація гаманця цифрових грошей на вашому iOS і Android мобільному телефоні.
CDS H і M System
Загальна стадія для вашого Masternode. Швидка установка MN + Dashboard + Моніторинг + Кілька монет + сповіщення (все за $ 0,99 / місяць оплата в CDS).
Хмара зберігання файлів і обміну
Навіщо витрачати значні додаткові приміщення на комп'ютері або телефоні, коли ви можете зберігати свої архіви та медіа файли в хмарі і пропонувати їх поперечно над гаджетами? Після частини фіксованого вільного простору Ви можете придбати Cloud Space з CDS.
CloudNode (CDS) є 100% відкритим вихідним кодом, з розрахунком PoS (Proof-of-Stake) і Masternodes onX11 Структурований в енергійній системі з Masternodes і винагородою 4800 CDS і встановлення винагороди 1200 CDS для кожної видобутої площі через регулярні проміжки часу.
Швидкий і безпечний
Cloudnode [CDS] - це цифрові гроші з захищеною системою для здійснення онлайн-обмінів за допомогою InstantSend і PrivateSend з максимальною швидкістю та безпекою.
Ця платформа має приємний і інтуїтивно зрозумілий, навіть для початківців інтерфейс;
Синхронізація з абсолютно будь-яким пристроєм незабаром випустить більше мобільних додатків;
Всі доступні на Cloud Nodefunctionality коштують користувачам лише копійки;
Ви будете здивовані, як приємно і легко використовувати цю платформу, протягом 2 років я не бачив нічого більш комфортного і гладкого на роботі;
Монети екосистеми СРС, безсумнівно, підвищаться, оскільки попит на таку зручну платформу буде гарантований;
Дуже досвідчена команда, новачки просто зможуть створити таке прохолодне обслуговування, попередні розробки цієї команди також дуже популярні і відомі в усьому світі.
Інформація про token
Назва монети: Cloud Node v2✔ Ticker: Алгоритм CDS✔: X11 MN / POS✔ Нагорода за блок: 6000 CDS✔ Час блокування: 60 секунд✔ Матерінод: 10,000,000 CDS✔ Розподіл блоку: 80% Masternode / 20% Staking Наявність InstantSend, PrivateSend & Multi-Send
Проект надихає впевненість, тим більше, що власний блокчейн практично вже запущений, є гаманці для всіх видів пристроїв, сайт з майстер-менеджерами повністю запущений і готовий до роботи, все інше вже має лістинг на біржі. І все це було досягнуто всього за кілька місяців, тобто потенціал Cloud Node величезний. Я бачив багато проектів, які навіть через кілька років не могли досягти того, що команда Cloud Note змогла виконати за такий короткий час. Загалом, проект є дуже цікавим і перспективним, для більш детальної інформації Ви можете перейти за посиланнями нижче.

HONESTY. TRANSPARENCY. ACCESSIBILITY.
Individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. So we created the smooth, stable lock store Android apps and the DApp store using the Ethereum blockchain and smart contracts for fast-growing, huge market of mobile applications for Android. Behind more than 2 and a half years of active development and improvements that continue to bring even more new features.

The owners of the nodes as a motivation receive a reward in the form of 1% of processed transactions. This and all Commission platform.
The more users the platform will have, the more need nodes. To add your node to the list of trusted, its owner must make a guarantee deposit, in the base currency of the platform - 10 ETH and 5000 PMT token, on a smart contract.

We look forward to seeing Your work on a decentralized platform, join the future!
meakkineni: Can you give us some Crumbs stats? Like the number of downloads, total amount managed by Crumbs etcPatrick: Unfortunately cannot go into detail but we are into the thousands of users.
meakkineni: From the jobs postings looks like you are recruiting more people for Crumbs. Can you tell us about some of the exciting new features that are going to be implemented?Patrick: Expect to see on-demand purchase of crypto bundles, mainnet deposits and withdraws, integration with Metal Pay, and more coins! Over the coming months, we plan to offer lower fees for MTL holders, unlock features, and more!
Abu: Is Crumbs going to include any gamification aspects in the future? How is the marketing strategy for Crumbs differ from pay?Patrick: Yes, we will add an element of gamification in the future, the current focus is user acquisition
red: How come we don't have referrals yet? Are we holding the feature back for some reason?Ephraim: Referrals is one of the most exciting features we have in the works, because not only is it a technical challenge on both front-end and back-end, but it also introduces a new way to earn Pop. In fact, we’re just about wrapping up and finalizing the details for this feature, while making plans to translate the tech to support even more ways to earn rewards in the app. Something to look out for in version 1.1.0 😏
flumpson: My biggest hurdle in getting people to sign up is that their bank doesn’t work. In my case it was Citi. When will there be router and account number signup for people who aren’t served by plaid?Ephraim: Currently the app integrates Plaid, a bank-linking SDK that supports over 90% of U.S. banking customers and is used by some of the biggest names in FinTech. We are aware however that online banking is required with your financial institution, and one way around that is routing/account number input. This feature is on our roadmap as a new service that will verify your account via micro-deposit. TLDR; it’s definitely coming!
Mondo: How do you see Metal Pay taking market share from the more popular apps like Venmo and CashApp? What will convince new users to switch over?Marshall: I really believe through innovation, amazing user experience and specifically the value proposition to users on new behaviors and new technology. Specifically, I believe PoPP and the interactions with crypto to be completely new behaviors that the mass market is yet to be introduced to. Being paid (currency not points) for making a payment? I think this is a new concept and one that Metal owns. What will convince them? This is the hard question. A viral campaign that gets our apps out there, with proper messaging and the right endorsements I believe is key. Finding the viral loop, increasing our K factor (number of invites that every new user brings). When I started this company I recognized that design, user interface, user experience, incentives, and proper information were the biggest holes in cryptocurrency. We are hitting on all of these pieces.
Mondo: “A viral campaign that gets our apps out there, with proper messaging and the right endorsements I believe is key. Finding the viral loop, increasing our K factor (number of invites that every new user brings)" - is there an estimated date for this campaign? I'm sure your community would love to help where possible as well.Marshall: We are in the process now of smoke testing our campaign strategies, and we will certainly be involving the community as we begin.
biyamin: "I am not okay putting my social security number in [Metal Pay]. Is there another way?"Ephraim: This is one of mostly heard feedback, and we’re aware of the friction it can cause among new users. However, it is due to our financial partners' requirements, U.S. law, and FDIC insured Cash balance (we create a bank account on behalf of users) that prompt us to ask for SSN during on-boarding. Rest assured, we have a plan in placed to make onboarding as streamlined as possible, especially when SSN no longer serves as a fool-proof means of identity verification, due to recent security breaches by large firms. Finally, we have in our roadmap to allow users onto the Metal platform with limited KYC.
jake_eisenberg11: When will Metal Pay release in New York happen?Marshall: This is a tough one, it will happen upon one of two things coming to fruition. An exchange partner joins us who has a Bitlicense and will deeply integrate their back-end with us or us acquiring our Money Transmission License for NY and the accompanying Bitlicense (which if this is the case will take at least 1 year). That being said we're shooting for the former obviously, a partner to help us fast track and we've got a few in the pipeline
[A bunch of different people]: When will Metal Pay release in [insert location here]?Kristal: I can assist with all the WHEN will Metal Pay release in MY STATE or COUNTRY. We have no firm timelines on either, but we are pursuing all states and expanding to Europe/Asia simultaneously… Ditto for Crumbs.
Jan: Quick one - Metal Pay debit cards?Marshall: VERY SOON, it's next up on our feature roadmap
redruggles5: Really excited about Metal Pay for merchants, particularly micro-business. Are you able to tell us how that will look and where in the timeline that is? Do you have plans to integrate with current bookkeeping software like QuickBooks, plans for accepting credit cards/integration with Pay, etc? The biggest objection I get is in regards to integration with their current system, the ability to accept cards, addition of QR codes or another private way for customers to pay besides their phone number. Lastly, will there be a separate referral system for merchants?Marshall: We are very excited as well, in terms of merchants we are going to start with the integrations into existing POS. Integrating with QuickBooks and Intuit are a must for crypto record keeping for S/M/L business, we have ambitious plans for this. Referral system for merchants via consumer - YES.
ekasu: Is there a possibility to increase the Metal Pay bank transfer speed (from 1 day or so currently to within the same day like Venmo) to increase competitiveness/attraction?Marshall: Yes with Instant ACH for US customers, a feature we will be adding and is in the PF board on Jira
Bitcoinbella: Are there any plans for retail stores to use Metal yet?Marshall: Yes, a big part of our plan of attack here is to launch first with the debit card so we can go anywhere Visa/MC is accepted. The next step is to go after small business with technical integrations through payment partners as well as simple QR codes at the register similar to Wechat/Alipay (China really inspires me). Technical integrations - this means WooCommerce, WordPress, Shopify, Authorize.net, etc, and for physical brick and mortar stores working directly with processors (lots of them see Square as a threat and are much larger, eventually Square will go to cut out interchange and stick it to the credit card companies, many partnership opportunities abound)
jake_eisenberg11: When cannabis merchant service?!?!?!Marshall: We have pivoted away from high-risk merchants, that being said crypto is like cash and is permission-less. The bank poses no restrictions on what you do with cash withdrawn from the ATM unless you are doing something that could be considered illegal or pose harm to the bank. Very similar to us, replace paper cash with crypto.
ekasu: What is the deadline looking for these features: (a) transfer Metal to erc20 wallet/Metal vault; (b) use Metal Pay with merchantsMarshall: Mainnet deposit/withdrawal early end of this year or January. Metal merchants will kick off with our card integration for consumers, integrations for Merchant will start next year (upon hiring more developers) Glenn very early on built a very cool WordPress plugin for WooCommerce. These integrations for WP, Shopify, etc will come first and most likely early in 2019.
meakkineni: Looking at things so far, I have a feeling that PoPP score implementation has barely started. What is the time frame we are looking for it to go live?Marshall: PoPP score is implemented just not integrated into the UI, this is a high priority one for us.
Decoder1: There's been talk about making the MTL token more prominent in both Crumbs and MetalPay. Some things which have been mentioned are discounted fee's, moving it to the top of the buy list, unlocking special features and obviously the increased POPP score which has already been confirmed. Are these still in the works or have they been shelved? If so are there any other bonus features Metal are considering?Marshall: I'm really looking forward to adding these additional features to highlight the special function of MTL inside the Metal ecosystem of apps. Some things that have not been talked about yet are early access on special features for users with a MTL balance, gamified features to unlock surge PoPP, partner integrations and more.
NilesCrane: What will be the utility of the MTL token when other tokens are available to be popped? What will being the 'native currency' for the Metallicus apps involve and why would you expect this to drive the token price higher when other tokens are available in the same network?Ephraim: We have a grand vision of how Metal and Pop will play a role in your daily experience on the Metal platform. Although we can’t go into too much detail into the features we have in our roadmap, we can say that MTL token will be an essential part of the Metal platform and overall ecosystem. Earning Pop when making payments is the stepping stone to realizing this vision, as we become the best, most rewarding, and user-friendly payments/crypto platform on the market.
kt: When will we start to see some other utilities for the MTL token through pay and Crumbs etc, other than the existing PoPP mechanism, and what are they likely to be?
Deaethtofiat: Will Metal's [ticker] still be changing?Marshall: That [$XMT] is something we want to do upon announcing our mainnet chain.
Tblgu: Did Metal pay a fee for Bittrex relisting?Kristal: Simple answer is no. We haven't seen any American-based exchanges charging for listings, and we believe the Bittrex re-listing was based entirely on the merits of our company.
marc0o: I know it might take a while until Metal reaches Europe. My favorite and IMO very promising exchange (Lykke) often gets the question whether PayPal can be used to deposit EUR or FIAT in general. Do you think it would be possible and useful to partner up with exchanges to provide FIAT deposits/withdraws?Marshall: Yes we absolutely do and are talking to top exchanges right now, there are so many exchanges that are crypto/crypto only and we think we make a very nice fit for an integration to be the onramp/offramp, p2p payments, spending and link to the merchant world. This is a critical part of our business model and so far we are seeing HEAVY interest.
lemme: Why is Metal selling so much $MTL from the operational pool for such a low price?Marshall: Selling and spending are two different things, so I think one of the assumptions is that selling = spending which is not the case. Yes, we are selling MTL to fund our operating bank, but not spending it at the rate that we are selling it. We are doing this because of three reasons: (1) We raised a very small amount last year to build out our apps (which arguably we have delivered) $3m vs most crypto startups raising $20m+ and we have delivered much, much more. (2) We need to demonstrate a full year of burn in the bank account to close the audit. (3) We need to close the audit to retain our money transmission licenses to get all fifty states, Europe as well, in addition to certain features like in app-exchange that we do directly. We're actively growing the company and as soon as we close Series A we will stop selling and focus on accumulating (not only MTL, but certainly as much MTL as we can get our hands on while diversifying).
ekasu: How likely is that more MTL is taken out of the operational pool in the short term, which can decrease the price much more?Marshall: MTL will be taken out of the operational pool until the successful closing of our financing round which we are in the process of right now
meakkineni: Have you come up with any other significant use cases for MTL apart from BNB style use case in Crumbs and building a better PoPP score?Marshall: Yes, and you will be hearing more about that as we plan to release an updated paper showcasing the fully decentralized aspects of the chain we are building.
marc0o: I hope I remember it right. A while ago Marshall talked about Metal being a service targeting people that do not have a bank account. Is this still on the roadmap?Marshall: Yes it is. I know it may not appear that way right now but I firmly believe a good product keeps a narrow execution and a large vision. So the first part of the network and what will eventually become decentralized is starting on the equivalent of testnet or centralized (this is not too different than Bitcoin or Ethereum in the early days). We’re starting with linked bank accounts and moving to keep that as an option that people can skip over and opt to choose a stable coin, all while creating a Metal profile and [obtaining a] PoPP score.
Parker: Would Metal consider doing token buybacks (a la BNB)? Are they even legal in the U.S.? Could doing so make Metal a security?Marshall: As a company, we will buy different cryptocurrencies at different times depending upon the market situation, buying MTL is something that we will do, as far as any guarantee to x amount being bought back per quarter or percentage of profit, that is most likely indefinitely off the table for a US company.
CryptoSheffield: Do you “own” the PoPP concept?Marshall: We own trademarks yes, the first mention of media and are working on a provisional patent. This type of thing is very hard to get a patent for even harder to defend right now.
Future: Some people noticed Sid no longer on the website. Has he moved on? If so what's the story there?Kristal: Sid put together some beautiful designs and helped shape and create the early stages of Metal until it's launch. As we move into the next stage of post-launch, we amicably parted ways with Sid and wish him continued success wherever he goes. As a company, we're on the hunt for a Principal Designer to continue our progress on great design and user interface, to push us into the next phase of our product.
SciGuy: You guys still thinking of launching in Korea? Of all the places, this is where I'm actually going to be paying very close attention. Korea loves crypto.Marshall: BIG TIME. We want to enter the Korean market ASAP as we know we have quite a few fans there. The goal is to quickly enter the international market by the end of this year. Now that Nebula is working the next hurdles are bank/FI partners, licensing, localization and marketing (its more complicated than that but those are the critical pieces to expansion). Keep in mind we will be allowing anyone in the world to sign up in the future and skip bank while choosing a stablecoin as their "bank" fiat choice. This goes back to the unbanked question. If we just release a crypto wallet and say tada we've banked the unbanked... have we really? I'm serious when I say it. And you can see it in the progression with our products and the vision. Gotta link existing banked citizens along with merchants and unbanked, they all must be in the same ecosystem. Otherwise, the dream can't become a reality.
andrea: I would like to ask about timing. I remember there was a talk about things that could be done before EOY such as new crypto implementing PoPP; debit card, series A round.Marshall: Yes, I'm happy to say this is all on track. In terms of fundraising round, I believe the missing link for us is demonstrating user growth and b2b client acquisition, something we are working on fiercely right now. One of the things I saw in Dogecoin community that was really awesome was the involvement of the community in viral campaigns (especially for good) such as NascaJosh Wise, Doge for water, Sending the Jamaican bobsled team to the Winter Olympics.
nofomo: Anything you can share about things to look forward to before EOY? Any big partnerships, etc.? From a marketing perspective, are there ways that MTL can showcase or communicate SEC compliance more? Not to flaunt it, but as people scramble out of bad projects/Tether, etc., it might help to get more info out there. When Desk, and can we expect to see USD/MTL pairs?Marshall: We have quite a few new features coming: PoPP in under ten minutes always, PoPP notifier so you can know if a payment is PoPP eligible, API for other companies (exchanges, cryptos, FIs), adding more cryptos for PoPP funnel, buy functionality, mainnet deposit/withdrawal. Partnerships we have a few big ones in the pipeline 😉 In terms of compliance I think our actions speak louder than words, we operated very differently than 99% of the other companies in the space and focused heavily on compliance in a rapidly evolving landscape. We were chastised initially for keeping the token offering private and to accredited but in the long run this was the correct way to operate and we're seeing that now. Desk/Vault is postponed until next year as we have more than enough to conquer right now on Pay/Crumbs... USD/MTL pairs, soon!!! Not just with us, but on other exchanges we anticipate.
meakkineni: Has any other banks shown interest in Metal lately?Marshall: Yes, a few big ones, as well as smaller tier 2 banks
meakkineni: Is there any tangible benefit Metal has gained so far by sponsoring Necker Cup?Marshall: Yes, quite a bit with partners we are in talks with now, in addition to bringing in investors in our next financing round... Not to forget influencers!
cryptoandcannabis: Is there any institutional support for Metal being shown, even in preliminary stages? Now that traditional asset custodians such as Fidelity are in the mix maybe MTL can become a slice of people's crypto asset classMarshall: We are starting to see interest from the big custodians in the space, very exciting times. Fidelity recently entering has really helped this, in addition, several trust companies are opening up.
1Chance: Will [Metal] consider supporting any of the stablecoins?Marshall: Yes, all of the good ones we will be supporting.
Yannik: Will be some parts of the new Metal Blockchain open source? And based on Stellar?Marshall: Yes it most certainly will be open source and anyone can connect to our public network. Based on Stellar? Where are you getting this information? 😛
Québécoiserie: Are you working on Metal Blockchain now or has it not started yet?Marshall: We are in the very beginning phases and testing the assumptions for PoPP on our centralized back-end. Additionally, we are in the process of raising a funding round, The Metal Foundation will be running the open source initiative when we launch it next year.
Decoder1: There is a lot of talk about a Metal blockchain - this sounds exciting but also quite ambitious because it can take years to achieve the fine tuning and security required to develop a new blockchain. Would it be PoW? PoS? Wouldn't it be easier to build a side chain on Ethereum like Loom, or build something on Cosmos SDK to take advantage of existing layer 1 security solutions? If you plan to one day PoPP with other tokens Cosmos might be a good idea. My concern is that with a small team and many things like Desk, Merchant, revamped Vault, new features on the App, Android, new regions, that Metal might be biting off more than it can chew. So if you could elaborate more on these plans that would be great!Marshall: This is a correct assumption and we are already doing a lot, there is a reason we have put Vault/Desk on hold while we focus on Crumbs and Pay. In terms of the blockchain side, we are staying agnostic and specifically with the consensus mechanism we are looking at lots of options. We will, without a doubt, be leveraging other chains for interoperability. Jae Kwon is a good friend of mine and I think Cosmos has a lot of potential (I'm an investor full disclosure), I also look at the work that has been done with Komodo leveraging the bitcoin blockchain, I find this very interesting as well. The idea here is that this will be a non-profit initiative under The Metal Foundation and not directly intertwined with Metallicus Inc. the private company.
meakkineni: Lately we have been talking more about Metal Blockchain than Metal Merchant. Has the focus shifted?Marshall: The focus has not shifted, one of the things that did change from the inception of the project until now is that we've decided to stay away from re-inventing POS and merchant software, we feel that it is better to partner with processors than try to replace them ala Square
Sporklin: I did warn I came with a vital question. @Marshall Shoes, you are known in the crypto space for having good taste in clothes. What is on your feet at the moment?Marshall: Hey @Sporklin!!!! Long time no see and thank you. Ok check it out, these ones are steezy and I just picked them up.
Yannik: Is Kangen Water still available in the office?Marshall: Yes, still on tap, always. Kangen 9.5.
Parker: how many fingers am I holding up?Marshall: Two? 🤘
