Understanding What Makes Revuto Tick 7500

Feuter

If you’ve been following Revuto since the start, you’ll have a clear idea of what we’re all about: the problem we’re solving, the solution we’re pursuing, and how this will transform the subscription economy.

Not everyone has the luxury of time served in the Revuto trenches however: some of you are new here, and this may be the first you’ve heard about us, while others may have dipped in and out over the last few weeks due to other commitments, and have to get up to speed. If so, this is the article for you: a recap of what Revuto is building, why it matters, and how you can get involved.

What Is Revuto?

Revuto is an intuitive and easily accessible active subscription management service. From a single dashboard, it enables you to manage all of your subscriptions for an array of products and services. Movies; music; grooming products; confectionery; apparel; you name it. Revuto’s mission is to save customers time, energy, and money by completely redefining the subscription management experience.

Revuto as a Service

Revuto vows to make the «Are you sure you want to unsubscribe?» line a thing of the past. We built Revuto because we recognize and empathize with the problem.

With year-on-year growth of 100%, it’s evident that subscriptions are here to stay and are destined to become an integral part of everyone’s life. Revuto’s place in this growing economy is to filter signals from noise and to provide a clean and pleasant subscription management experience.

We believe that no-one should ever be charged for subscriptions they no longer want or use, and it’s our primary goal to make that happen.

The Problem That Revuto Solves

Understanding human psychology, businesses leverage these biases in consumer behavior to increase their revenues by intentionally making unsubscribing difficult. As a result, users easily forget about ongoing subscription charges, find the unsubscribing process tricky to navigate, or fall victim to services that charge their cards indefinitely without notification.

We believe there is a clear product-market fit for a service protecting consumers from the many unwanted consequences of subscriptions.

How We Came to That Solution

We want to create a subscription management solution with immediate real-world applications. Rather than catering to a niche audience of existing crypto users, we seek to bring crypto to the mainstream.

Our goal is to maximize the value of ongoing subscriptions by simplifying the payments process and protecting customers from hidden fees and subscription charges for services they no longer use.

Revuto’s main deliverable is a decentralized mobile application — a single-dashboard subscription management solution that helps users control their recurring subscription-related expenses.

Everyone Should Use Revuto Because…

With the Revuto app, you save money by ApprovingBlocking, or Snoozing subscription charges or any other recurring payments as they occur.

Managing a dozen subscriptions shouldn’t become a part-time job, and there’s absolutely no reason unsubscribing should take more than a single click.

The Revuto App

The Revuto App packs a host of powerful features and functions including:

  • Adding subscriptions
  • Issuing Revuto Virtual Debit Cards
  • Controlling subscriptions (Block, Snooze, Approve)
  • Topping up the Revuto Virtual Debit Card(s) with personal debit/credit cards
  • Topping up the Revuto Virtual Debit Card(s) with REVU tokens
  • Sending and receiving REVU tokens in REVU wallet
  • Spending analytics
  • Notifications/alerts

Successful Token Sale

A lot of late nights, early mornings, and crammed weekends have gone into the creation of this project. But none of it would have been possible without the faith and support of our communityThey’ve carried us this far and made everything that’s still to come on the Revuto roadmap possible.

Despite market disruption, we sold every last REVU token reserved for the Token Sale in record time:

  • Early Bird Tier 1: Under 30 minutes
  • Early Bird Tier 2: 18 minutes
  • Community Sale: 42 minutes

With the help of our community, we raised $10 million in four days and received 1.7m sign-ups in three weeks.

Why Crypto?

At Revuto, we believe that crypto is the future of finance, while our interests neatly align with the cypherpunk ethos. Blockchain-based digital assets are designed for transparency and ease of access and provide users with complete control over their funds. This is exactly what Revuto is trying to achieve with subscriptions.

The Cardano blockchain on which our payment rails run is the engine facilitating this, while the Revuto app is the wrapper that places financial freedom in the hands of everyday consumers. Whether you’re a crypto native, crypto newb, no-coiner, cypherpunk, early adopter, tech-head or tech-phobe, Revuto was made for you.

Crypto and its underlying technology makes this all possible, but it is the people — the Revuto team, community, and early supporters — who are turning this capability into reality.

Today, ZHU reveals the details of his plan to build an NFT-based fan community. Beginning with the DREAMROCKS NFT Collection exclusive to Red Rocks concert-goers, an open Zhuman Community token will also be made available for fans worldwide. Fans who attended ZHU’s six-night sold out run at Red Rocks that concluded last night are able to register for community tokens as well as limited-edition moment tokens that include exclusive content from the show they attended. To redeem, showgoers should register using the same email they used to purchase their concert tickets.

Fans of ZHU worldwide will also be able to redeem an open Zhuman Community token. The Zhuman Community token will grant holders access to exclusive content and events to be announced in the coming weeks. ZHU adds, “The fans have shown up so hard these last two weeks at Red Rocks, I’m excited to give something special back to them while also making sure all of my Zhumans worldwide can be a part of the community we’re building.” All DREAMROCKS tokens will be minted and issued on Saturday, May 15th at 12 PM ET. All Zhuman Community tokens will begin minting in the coming weeks. Fans should visit ZHU’s page on the Yellowheart Marketplace for more information and to redeem.

The DREAMROCKS NFT Collection from ZHU is being issued by Night After Night and Yellowheart, the partners behind Kings of Leon’s NFT YOURSELF album release. These releases make ZHU the first artist to build a fan community by issuing free community tokens and the first to issue tokens tied to a live experience.

Casey McGrath, CCO of Night After Night adds, “With this offering, ZHU is setting the tone for how artists should enter the space and use NFTs to create a fan-first model that establishes a long term direct-to-fan pathway.”

“For YellowHeart, democratizing the modern live music experience is our mission. As in-person events start to come back, introducing the many ways NFTs can transform and amplify live music for both artists and fans, in a way that’s better for the environment, is all the more exciting,” said Josh Katz, Founder & CEO of YellowHeart. “It was important to ZHU to have both a carbon-neutral process, as well as offer tokens that are gas-free, so all of his fans could participate in this iconic drop. Since YellowHeart uses Ethereum Layer 2, which uses proof-of-stake, it is the most efficient blockchain solution in terms of gas fees and energy consumption.”

Crypto Investing Re-invented Following BlackDragon’s New Platform Launch 16450

BlackDragon

BlackDragon, the early-stage crypto investing fundraising group, has launched its new decentralized blockchain-native Platform this (Sunday, the 9th of May 2021).

This milestone will make investing both more convenient and simpler for those seeking the highest returns for their capital. With over 1,000 community members and an average ROI of 40x in 2020, BlackDragon has enabled everyday investors to see returns previously only reserved for those with privileged access, extensive crypto networks, and the ability to put in countless hours of dedicated research.

Our newly developed platform is a crypto investors’ one-stop-shop where investors can take comfort knowing that the experienced BlackDragon team has vetted projects and conducted the appropriate due diligence.

The cohesive and beautifully designed app compiles the various projects with the key fundraising data associated with each and provides links to research, key socials, and ROI on previous projects. All the user has to do is bridge their tokens, lock them up to calculate their pro-rata percentage amount, and decide which projects they would like to invest in. Then, with the push of a button, their capital is allocated to prime early-stage projects of their choice.

Apart from sleek UX/UI design, which allows users to easily navigate and search through deals, the app’s biggest innovation is that it runs on the xDAI network, making transactions cheaper, faster, and more efficient. The mechanism allows xDAI tokens to be bridged to and from the ETH blockchain.

And this is where the BlackDragon Token comes into play. The BlackDragon Token (BDT) is an integral part of the BlackDragon investing ecosystem, as it grants access to the platform itself and is used for calculating investment allocations. The way it works is this – if you want a higher project allocation, you need to lock more xBDT.

It is important to note that xBDT tokens can be locked by users via integrated smart contracts, meaning each user gets to decide how many tokens they want to lock/unlock for a certain period. Subsequently, the tokens are locked for 6 months, stimulating stable price appreciation.

BlackDragon currently offers access to their investing services based on the following levels:

Level 0

White Dragon

250+ BD Tokens

Access to 60% of deals

Level 1

Green Dragon

1,000+ BD Tokens

Access to 90% of deals

Level 2

Yellow Dragon

5,000+ BD Tokens

Access to 95% of deals

Level 3

Black Dragon

10,000+ BD Tokens

Access to 100% of deals

If you’re considering getting into crypto investing, but have no idea where to start, or if you’re a seasoned trader and want to save time on research and gain exclusive access to preliminary deals while enjoying a premium UX/UI experience, then BlackDragon is your gateway to convenient and successful crypto gains.

Hashflow Announces $3.2M Seed Round To Bring Professional Market Makers to DeFi, Backed By Dragonfly Capital and Electric Capital 17038

Hashflow, a decentralized exchange connecting DeFi traders with top crypto market makers, has closed a seed funding round of $3.2 million from leading venture capital firms and angel investors. The round was led by Dragonfly Capital and Electric Capital, and joined by IDEO Ventures, Alameda Research, Metastable, Galaxy Digital, Unanimous Capital, and angels including Balaji Srinivasan, Kain Warwick, & Ryan Sean Adams.

Decentralized exchanges on Ethereum have seen rapid growth over the past year with over $215 billion traded on DeFi alone in Q1 2021. This growth can be credited to the popularity of Automated Market Makers (AMMs) which catalyzed DeFi’s explosive growth by offering a simple and permissionless on-chain trading experience. Hashflow builds upon this foundation laid by AMMs, by connecting DeFi traders with top crypto market makers. Using Hashflow, traders can receive price quotes directly from market markers and broadcast trades on-chain using Web3 wallets in a fully trustless manner. By replacing AMM bonding curves with professional market makers, Hashflow offers traders better prices, zero slippage, & the lowest gas costs of any decentralized exchange on Ethereum.

For market makers, Hashflow provides access to the expanding DeFi market while allowing full control over their inventory and pricing strategies. Until now, market makers have had to deploy capital in public liquidity pools, use pre-defined pricing functions, and pay heavy gas fees to change strategies on-chain. With Hashflow, market makers can use bespoke pricing strategies and bridge them on-chain using digital signatures. This gives market makers full control over their capital, and flexibility to adapt to market conditions, using strategies informed by years of experience in centralized markets.

Jon Kol, Director at Galaxy Digital, a leading cryptocurrency investment firm and market maker, commented: “Hashflow is the first project we’ve backed that seamlessly allows market makers to quote prices effectively to DeFi traders.”

Hashflow launched its closed private alpha product this week, with market makers offering price quotes to traders on Ethereum mainnet. In the coming weeks, Hashflow plans to integrate more market makers, and add additional asset pairs that dominate on-chain trading volumes. General audiences will be able to access Hashflow and trade on-chain with market makers by the end of Q2.

Sharing Economy International Invests to develop NFT Technology into ECrent to Open Up Digital Items Sharing 17530

Traditionally, when we talk about sharing economy, people would think about cars, bicycles, mobile rechargers, apartments, or may be even umbrella, toys, etc. All about sharing economy has been some solid tangible things which be shared out to the needed consumer through a rental arrangement. The sharing item will go and come back through physical transactions. But in the digital world, digital products such as digital arts, music, video games are more difficult to control and record the ownership and usage through a P2P sharing model.

As the pioneer in the sharing economy market, based on the Sharing Block engine which is the transaction engine based on blockchain technology that Sharing Economy International Inc. (OTCQB:SEII) has developed to handle the transactions of sharing items between people in ECrent today, SEII engineers and technology partners while revamping and improving the ECrent platform and applications, also decides to add NFT technology on top of the Sharing Block engine. NFT technology will allow users to share their digital products and assets to other people, either free of charge, or at a defined fee by the digital product owner.

“NFT gives a breakthrough to the sharing market which allows us not only to share our tangible items, but also any of the intangible digital items,” said Parkson Yip, SEII’s advisor on corporate development. “SEII is always looking for solutions which can improve the ways how people can share. Apart from drills, cars, bicycles, there is always a market need for the sharing of digital products, and ECrent being the platform in helping people to connect through sharing their resources, we must move fast into the digital product sharing market.”

“Blockchain technology fits very well with the development of sharing economy solutions. Its secured decentralised ledger concept can help us to develop a secure and trustful P2P sharing solution based on ECrent. With the development of NFT technology, we will be able to extend to facilitate the sharing of digital items between people as well. We can see that NFT will apply to a lot of digital items, as well other items, such as art works, which facilitate the tracing of ownership and transaction history of the items with a very trustful mechanism. While NFT is attaching directly with the products, the information would allow cross-platform support, so items can be shared through different platforms as well, as soon as we all follow the same protocol,” says Yip.

The9 Signed Filecoin Mining Machine Purchase and Hosting Agreement to Enhance Filecoin Mining 17614

The9 Limited, an established Internet company, today announced that it signed a Filecoin mining machine purchase and hosting agreement amounting to approximately US$2 million with a Filecoin mining service provider. In February 2021, The9 signed a US$10 million framework agreement with a Filecoin mining machine vendor to purchase Filecoin mining machines. This new purchase agreement The9 just signed is with another Filecoin mining machine vendor. This new purchase will increase the effective storage mining power of The9 in the Filecoin network, especially in the current early stage of Filecoin’s rapid development trend.

At present, The9 owns an independent node on Filecoin blockchain and 8 Pebibytes of effective storage mining power in the Filecoin network. When the two agreements are fully implemented, The9 is expected to have a total of more than 80 Pebibytes of effective storage mining power in the Filecoin network.

Filecoin is an open source, distributed storage and digital payment system. Users can use the preset economic incentive mechanism to store data to ensure that files are stored and accessed reliably for a long time. Users use the Filecoin (FIL) in the system to rent hard drive space; and storage miners are responsible for providing storage space to store files and proving these files have been stored correctly.

Based on Filecoin’s technology and the expected continuous expansion of future application scenarios, as well as the recent positive price trend of Filecoin, The9 decided to increase the investment in Filecoin and the effective storage mining power in the Filecoin network, to fulfill its growth strategy in the cryptocurrency mining business.
