PlayChip Mainsale and Listing FAQs
We have been hard at work readying the Universal Gaming Token for it’s launch on December 19th. As many of you know, we have made the decision to discontinue our main token sale. We have received a number of questions from our token holders, platform users and community following. Please take the time to read the below to get a greater understanding of what has happened, why it has happened and what is on the cards moving forward. Why has the main sale been discontinued? The reasons for this decision were made in the best interests of all token holders and platform users, and are outlined below. Firstly, we simply do not require further sales prior to our listing date to deliver the project. Significant funds have been raised via token deals with corporate partners, brand ambassadors, and via mergers and acquisitions such as 123gaming earlier in the year. Stage 1 of development has already been completed and testing is underway in preparation for its the launch on December 19th. Secondly, our market analysts forecasted a significant drop in the price of Bitcoin around the time of our token sale. Given the effect the price of Bitcoin has on the cryptocurrency market, this could not only deter potential contributors to the sale, but also offer less value for people seeking to purchase PlayChips with cryptocurrency. Our analysts have predicted a healthier market in time for our mid-December listing when tokens will be avail...
PlayChip Pre-sale: What we’ve learned
After five months the PlayChip pre-sale is coming to a close. As we gear up for a massive November of launching Australia’s first gaming token sale, it’s a good time to reflect on what we’ve learned over our first six months in crypto. Do what you do best, This is a pretty simple mantra, but the truth is that entering the crypto domain can come with a host of distractions and demands from various sects of the community. Some people are into crypto out of a love for the technology. Some appreciate the creativity of the various projects in the space, while others like the streamlining of business processes and economics. Some enter purely for financial gain, while others look forward to using their purchased tokens within the ecosystem for which it has been designed. These various motivations within the crypto community can really impact on the priorities of an ICO and distract a team from its roadmap. All ICOs are unique, yet many within the community will seek to compare you to previous ICOs they have been involved in and measure your project against theirs. While it is important to listen to any community criticism or feedback, ultimately the team behind the project must take charge on what needs to be focussed on to deliver the best outcome possible.Brand Ambassador Brett Lee with Team PlayChip We are very fortunate to be a part of an existing business ecosystem. That has helped for three main reasons. Existing bu...

Cryptocurrency News Roundup | October 15 — October 21 - — Welcome to the PlayChip cryptocurrency news roundup, where you can keep up to date on all of the weeks important cryptocurrency and blockchain related news.. — Fidelity Investments Launch Cryptocurrency Trading and Custody PlatformFidelity Investments CEO Abigail Johnson We reported back in June that one of the worlds largest investment firms Fidelity was exploring cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. This week the company officially announced their crypto solution, called Fidelity Digital Assets. The new Fidelity subsidiary will offer cryptocurrency trading and enterprise grade custody services. Fidelity Digital Assets will provide trading and custody of Bitcoin and Ethereum, the two dominant cryptocurrencies.Tether Panic Drives Crypto Price Spike The price of Bitcoin went on a wild ride last week. The gold standard cryptocurrency was trading on major exchanges at around USD $6,300 Monday morning. News started to spread across social media after a doctored image began to circulate. The image appeared to be an official announcement from Binance indicating that all Tether (CRYPTO:USDT) trading would be suspended. While the use of informal language like ‘Tether big scam’ indicated this was likely to be misinformation, many were convinced. Traders took to their exchange accounts in droves to convert their Tether to other cryptocurrencies ca...
Keeping your BEARings — why HODLing is winning
Keeping your BEARings — why HODLing is winning - Another week in crypto and once again the bears are showing their claws — raking the crypto-world of almost 11% of its market cap. While some traders may be reaching for the bear spray, many of the crypto-naysayers that filled newspaper columns at the start of 2018 seem to have gone quiet. Perhaps they are more focused on the U.S stock market, which on Wednesday suffered it’s biggest drop since February. Or perhaps no one cares anymore. And we are tired of these Wall St “experts” telling us what is best for us and our future. HODLers, the true crypto believers, are the ones propping up the crypto-economy. We always have been. Late 2017 drew a host of speculators who thought blockchain was a tetris game and Litecoin was the new five cent piece. And like a Sydney Swans supporter a few goals behind late in the fourth, they’ve cut their losses and left, bound to regret it in the near future*.Image courtesy of Know Your Meme We at the PlayChip are proud HODLers. We believe wholeheartedly in our token, blockchain technology, and its unprecedented ability to shake up a host of industries that have become stagnant and lethargic. So, rather than fall in line and bemoan the crypto market, let’s take the time to celebrate the strides a humble token out of South Sydney has taken in a market that every banker and his Rolls Royce has tried to tell us is bubblier t...

Cryptocurrency News Roundup | October 1— October 7 - — Welcome to the PlayChip cryptocurrency news roundup, where you can keep up to date on all of the weeks important cryptocurrency and blockchain related news.. — Ethereum Network Update ‘Constantinople’ Promises to Solve Cryptos Energy Waste WoesEthereum network co-founder and lead developer Vitalik Buterin Big changes are on the way for the Ethereum network. The upcoming Constantinople update is expected to be deployed to the Ropsten Test Network on the 9th of October. The most significant change is the introduction of the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus method. Typical blockchain solutions utilise a Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus, whereby miners dedicate their computing horsepower to resolve complex math equations. The solutions to these problems are then used to verify entries on the ledger. Under a Proof-of-Stake consensus model so called ‘validators’ are able to contribute to the process for verifying ledger entries without dedicating excessive amounts of energy. This is achieved by locking a significant number of tokens. These tokens are then forfeited in the event that malicious activity is detected. Staking requirements are currently slated to be 32 ETH, or about USD $7,000. The requirement was originally set at 1,000 ETH tokens, but was reduced to 32 ETH to allow more network validators, which in turn improves the networks decentralisation....
Proof-of-Stake Consensus Update Coming to Ethereum Network
Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin is about to revolutionise cryptocurrency…again. — One of the biggest events on the cryptocurrency horizon is the upcoming Ethereum network ‘Constantinople’ update. The latest scheduled update for the network contains a host of significant improvements. One particular change that has the potential to change the entire ecosystem, the introduction of Proof-of-Stake consensus to the Ethereum network. The update will be applied to the Ropsten test network at block height 4,200,000. As opposed to traditional software updates, usually applied at a specific date and time, major blockchain updates are applied by ‘hard fork’. — Introduction of Casper, Proof-of-Stake Consensus. — With the next update to the Ethereum network, EIP 1013, Constantinople, we will see the first stage of the transition to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus. Users of the Ethereum network who wish to operate as a validator must ‘lock’ 32 Ether (ETH) tokens within a smart contract. These tokens serve as a literal ‘proof-of-stake’ and will be used to pay penalties in the event that a validator is deemed to be acting maliciously. In return for staking tokens and contributing to the security of the network, validators will be rewarded. It is estimated that these rewards will be somewhere in the order of 1–5% per annum, with Buterin indicating this is likely to be closer to 5% than the 1% end of t...
The Road to Success
Why milestones passed are more significant than those promised. — The wondrous potential of cryptocurrency and blockchain has ushered in an industry of new possibilities that could scarcely be imagined even a year ago. Blockchain technology is promising to transform the way we manage our finances, verify product authenticity and conduct public polling. Revolution is very much the name of the game in the crypto space, and consequently, a number of token sales resort to technical jargon and market speculation to try and overwhelm and induce FOMO to crypto newbies. The roadmap is regarded to be one of the most significant things to consider when evaluating a project to understand how and when the team plans to bring the project to market and, in the case of utility tokens, achieve high adoption. But since when did promises of achieving future landmarks become the benchmark for determining delivery? If that was the case, every politician would enjoy the devoted trust of their constituents, Jose Mourinho will have never endured a sacking and Dr Dre’s Detox album would have won album of the year at the 2006 Grammys.Early prototypes for the PlayWallet and PlayXchange apps (subject to change) The idealist crypto speculators of 2016 have been replaced with the business-minded investors of 2018. This year’s bear market has everybody questioning whether the innovators in this space really have the nous or marketability to ...

Welcome to the PlayChip cryptocurrency news roundup, where you can keep up to date on all of the weeks important cryptocurrency and blockchain related news.. — UNICEF Accepting Cryptocurrency Donations The French arm of UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) has announced that they will begin accepting donations in a number of popular cryptocurrencies. The decision to further integrate cryptocurrencies follows the success of their ‘Operation Game Chaingers’ program launched earlier this year. The program involved gamers installing mining software which utilises their computer graphics card power to process transactions on the Ethereum blockchain. The resulting rewards and fees are then automatically donated to the UNICEF coffers. The gamers who participated were able to raise a total of 85 ETH (Ether/Ethereum) over 59 days, equivalent to approximately USD$42,500 at the conclusion of the program in April. The money will be used to help children suffering in Syria’s ongoing refugee crisis. Anyone who is looking to donate can contribute directly by sending cryptocurrencies to the agency here, or alternatively, UNICEF states that a ‘free’ donation can be made by using the UNICEF France electronic wallet to mine your donation.xRapid and Coil Behind XRPs Return to Prominence Two big developments for XRP (CRYPTO:XRP) drove some serious price action last weekend.

Welcome to the PlayChip cryptocurrency news roundup, where you can keep up to date on all of the weeks important cryptocurrency and blockchain related news.. — Dare The Beast Rise From its Slumber? The altcoin market picked up steam over the weekend, with XRP (CRYPTO:XRP) leading the charge. XRP briefly bumped out industry stalwart Ethereum to take the number two position on CoinMarketCap.com’s cryptocurrency rankings. The token posted a 24hour high price of $0.76 (USD), a 60% increase for the same period, before stabilising around the $0.55 mark. After almost an entire year of retracements and pullbacks, we finally saw signs that the crypto bear market may be winding down. CEO of digital investment firm Galaxy Digital and defacto industry spokesman, Mike Novogratz, believes the Bitcoin bears are showing signs of seller fatigue. Novogratz referred to the BGCI (Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index) chart which shows that prices completed a full retrace, returning to the all-time-high set prior to the November 2017 breakout. The Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index measures the performance of a number of large cap cryptocurrencies. Novogratz famously abandoned plans for a cryptocurrency hedge fund right at the height of the 2017 Bitcoin price rally, a decision that turned out to be extremely prescient given the hard landing Bitcoin suffered in the early stages of 2018.“Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others ar...
A Brand New World
They say you can tell much about a person by the company they keep. This simple phrase generally refers to personal encounters in social circumstances, however it’s one that extends to our political and business worlds also. Politicians have been made, and broken, by connections they have had outside of the political system. Brands can rise and fall based on the reputations of their ambassadors. Nike’s recent advertising campaign with controversial NFL star Colin Kaepernick sparked a boycott of the brand from patriotic Americans who objected to the infamous quarterback’s refusal to stand during the national anthem, which is played at the beginning of every NFL match. Kaepernick began kneeling during the Star Spangled Banner in late 2016 as protest against racial injustice, sparking outrage in parts of the nation and even drawing condemnation from President Donald Trump himself. The campaign from Nike drew videos from a flurry of indignant consumers burning their Nike merchandise, which lead to President Trump tweeting that “Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts”.Nike’s controversial tweet with NFL star Colin Kaepernick Despite the initial outrage and criticism from the White House, Nike sales have been going through the roof, up 61% since the initial tweet, which featured a black-and-white photograph of Kaepernick captioned “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” P...
