Many of us were indoctrinated into the age-old adage of “put in a solid day’s work and you will be rewarded with a good life in time”. But a character in a Hong Kong TV show once retorted: “I see plenty of cows and buffalos working their asses off. I don’t see them getting rich.” […]
I think it’s safe to assume that the news about a futures backed Bitcoin ETF being tradable on the New York Stock Exchange hasn’t gone unnoticed for anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock. However, what you might not know is the meaning of this development. Why do we need it? What even is […]
ZUNA coin was recently listed on coinmarketcap and coingecko, the top crypto trackers in the space. Since then, its price shot up abruptly by 250,000% and gained 14,000 more holders in less than a month with no sign of slowing.
ZUNA Makes Big Strides in the Crypto Market
With an official launch roughly two weeks ago, ZUNA is already gaining massive traction. The main mission of the ZUNA project is to progress its growing community and reach out to more people. The platform has rapidly climbed up in the coinmarketcap rankings from position 6000 to around 3000 in less than two weeks.
ZUNA boasts some unique features that are built to reward investors. 5% of every transaction is redistributed to all existing hodlers.
In addition to rewarding ZUNA investors, according to their official website, ZUNA's liquidity pool (LP) is vital in stabilizing its prices. In every transaction, ZUNA takes 5%, which is automatically locked for stability.
ZUNA Future Plans
This project is still new and has plenty of room for growth. With a growing community behind them, ZUNA will begin working on their exclusive NFT collection drop scheduled for January of 2022.
According to ZUNA's roadmap, the team will follow up their NFT collection drop with plans on building an NFT marketplace where artists can create and sell their artwork. ZUNA also has future plans to introduce a crowdshare feature where multiple investors can own and sell a fraction of highly valued NFT's.
Exchange listing is an essential step in the roadmap of ZUNA that the team project will boost its adoption status in the crypto community. Currently, PancakeSwap is the exclusive exchange offering ZUNA. However, ZUNA plans to launch an all-around exchange suitable for both beginners and expert traders. The exchange will be accessible via mobile, where users can securely store the assets.
ZUNA is community-oriented and invites early investors to be part of its innovative trajectory. With everything they have planned it is clear that ZUNA is a project to keep your eyes on in the coming months.

Crypterium, the cryptocurrency wallet app with over 400,000 clients in over 170 countries, has been a part of the Visa Fast Track programme for over a year. Visa Fast Track is a programme providing Visa-powered on-boarding features to emerging fintech groups and introducing companies who could benefit one another.
Crypterium is looking forward to expanding in the USA soon and is already negotiating on a few possible strategic partnerships. Thanks to Crypterium's involvement with the Visa Fast Track programme, the wallet app will issue a Crypterium US Visa card in Q1 2022.
Involvement in the Visa Fast Track programme requires passing a rigorous audit for suitability. Crypterium's wallet and exchange features proved suitable enough to participate in the programme, and the company is seeing results one year later with the upcoming US card.
“Our involvement in the Visa Fast Track programme is paying off in ways that will significantly expand Crypterium's user base. Upon its launch, the Crypterium US Visa card enables our users to carry out their crypto transactions in yet another way. This additional feature underlines Crypterium's mission of providing the most accessible crypto experience out there. This is the beginning of a big push for the world's largest payments market, and we will follow this with similar programs for Canada and Latin America, where cryptocurrency is proving to be very popular,” said Crypterium CEO Steven Parker.

Pollen DeFi (https://pollen.id/), the decentralized protocol that facilitates ‘hivemind' weighting of asset pools that back up market-tradable tokens, today revealed their upcoming ‘Incentivised Beta' platform release and details on how the ‘DeFi 2.0' protocol will enable its unique community-managed financial instrument. The ‘Beta' release, which goes live in December, will initially enable users to contribute to the continual balancing and rebalancing of a singular central asset pool that will back up a tradable asset token. The protocol will be open to whitelisted users who can begin building community credibility (in the form of a ‘reputation' score), compete for a position on the community leaderboard, and, in turn, will have a chance to earn mainnet Pollen ($PLN) governance tokens.
Pollen DeFi aims to push ‘DeFi' into the ‘DeFi 2.0' era by moving beyond institutional imitation and removing centralized “middlemen”; the platform instead empowers user-curated cryptocurrency asset pools that are constantly refined via a merit-based balancing of users' portfolio suggestions. Community members are rewarded for making good decisions and subsequently gain more influence over the dynamically-rebalancing portfolio. Alternatively, users who would prefer to turn to more qualified traders (based on proven reputation, scored by the platform) can delegate their voting power accordingly. These ‘hivemind approved' asset portfolios then back up ‘asset pool tokens' listed as easily accessible financial instruments capable of outperforming market fluctuations.
Boosted earlier this year by strategic backers, The Graph and AlphaBit, Pollen DeFi is focused on building the ultimate ‘crypto meritocracy'; the salient, DAO-driven ‘DeFi 2.0' experience leans on the fact that the leadership team merely creates and hones the core technology and UI, ensures platform security, and facilitates user governance and ease of accessibility, while the diversity of opportunities presented within the financial instrument itself result from decentralized, community-contributed portfolio suggestions. Pollen DeFi is powered by two new tokenized assets built specifically with DeFi 2.0 in mind, the Pollen ($PLN) governance token and the native Portfolio Asset Index token ($PAI) which is backed by the total value locked (TVL) of the first and core asset pool on the platform. Other crypto-communities, influencers, and even top-ranking Pollen DeFi users will be able to propose additional asset pools that will be continually re-balanced by user proposals and support new asset-backed tokens, similar to the $PAI token.
Pollen DeFi's move from Alpha to Beta with a dramatically upgraded protocol design is supported by an already strong community of followers wishing to begin the process of actively contributing to the balancing of the asset pool. Pollen DeFi's open-source protocol and merit-based system empowers the brightest minds in its community and incentivizes them to continually contribute. This means that $PAI token is backed by a continually rebalanced and optimized asset pool which aims to out-smart market fluctuations with overall global community intelligence ideal for the 24/7 nature of the cryptocurrency market.
Pollen DeFi Project Lead and Co-Founder, Philip Verrien, explained, “Our focus has been on rebuilding asset management from the ground up; reducing risk and volatility, while also maximizing yield and creating dynamic opportunity for anyone, regardless of their experience level; [Pollen DeFi] aims to be the embodiment of what we believe will be the next step in DeFi, and reflect the core principles of truly decentralized finance.” Pollen DeFi's community is at the center of it all; Verrien and his team have designed Pollen DeFi to be powerful and easily accessible not only for the experienced crypto traders hoping to receive community accolades and earn $PLN token rewards for sharing their alchemic index ratios, but also, for those crypto-newcomers who are more familiar with curated asset indexes from TradFi and retail crypto environments consisting of pre-vetted coins and tokens - these users will be able to use Pollen ($PLN) governance token or hold $PAI asset pool token to easily be a part of the secure and well-tuned, ‘hivemind-approved' asset portfolio.
Pollen DeFi focuses on user participation and utility. It is designed to tackle governance and centralization issues commonplace in today's DeFi ecosystem. Focusing heavily on developing community participation incentives, and processes that build toward true decentralization, using the hivemind to put the community in control.
The $PAI token will be the first index token to be launched on the platform with its value tied to the TVL of the core asset pool. $PAI is designed to be a less volatile asset that provides a safer way to participate in the DeFi ecosystem and is designed to weather any market storm as it will be dynamically managed by the community 24/7. $PLN, on the other hand, is the governance token that allows participants to interact with the platform and is rewarded to community members who actively manage the portfolio successfully or delegate to those that do (from a leaderboard).
Beginning in December, whitelisted users will be able to actively contribute suggestions to Pollen DeFi's first community-managed portfolio and associated asset pool token, Portfolio Asset Index ($PAI); reputation points earned during this part-testnet, part-mainnet ‘Community Release Incentivised Beta' will be ported over as part of full mainnet launch in Q1 2022. This means that whitelisted early adopters who engage with Pollen's ‘Community Release Incentivised Beta' will appear on the leaderboard once the platform is fully live on mainnet. The Pollen DeFi team will be releasing more information regarding the community release whitelist and details for those that can participate in the coming weeks, in the meantime anyone interested can join Pollen's telegram group (https://t.me/pollen_dao) or follow @PollenDeFi on twitter.
Pollen DeFi (https://pollen.id/), is a first of its kind decentralized asset management ecosystem where the community builds and manages crypto asset portfolios together. Decentralized finance is designed to be by the people, for the people, and Pollen DeFi is acknowledging this by building the first, truly decentralized platform for managing tokenized asset pools. The merit-based DAO provides a reputation-based governance protocol with incentives that leverage the community's collective wisdom to curate asset pools. In this system, all users of the platform stand to benefit from the contribution of the best performing participants. Initially, the Pollen DeFi platform and its Pollen governance token ($PLN) will manage a single asset token, the Portfolio Asset Index ($PAI) token. The $PAI token will be managed 24-7 by the community and is designed to be a low volatility ‘DeFi Lego' which can be used in other protocols in the decentralized finance ecosystem. After Mainnet launch, other communities will be able to create and manage alternative asset tokens via the Pollen DeFi platform.
Right after the 2018 crypto market plunge, there was great doubt whether crypto was even a valid concept. Three Belgians set out to tackle what they believed to be the greatest hurdle for crypto adoption: security. Today, after years of research and development as well as raising USD 450K in the most successful crypto wallet pre-order campaign, NGRAVE reaches a new milestone: the global shipping of its flagship product ZERO, the coldest wallet, to 85 countries. ZERO is not only the first EAL7 certified crypto hardware wallet, it is also the world's first financial product to achieve the highest formal level of security.
NGRAVE is a Belgian blockchain and digital asset security provider making highly secure and user-friendly products. “Having experienced a USD 10 million hack with my previous blockchain project, I asked my NGRAVE co-founders a simple question: ‘Where can one store their crypto and be able to sleep at night?' We had no answer. So we decided to build it ourselves,” - Xavier Hendrickx, NGRAVE's CTO. So the three set out to finally offer investors self-sovereignty over their assets. The product suite is fully designed in Europe and built in Belgium to ensure the highest quality and security standards. Meanwhile, crypto has never been more popular, with the total number of unique crypto users surging from 106 million in January to 221 million in June 2021, according to research by crypto.com.
NGRAVE offers crypto users a complete product suite. ZERO, the offline touch-screen hardware wallet allows users to securely store and transact their crypto. GRAPHENE, the stainless steel encrypted backup solution ensures that users never lose their keys. It is not only made to withstand extreme conditions, but also designed to be recoverable in the event of loss. Again an industry's first. “Sales reflect our clients' appreciation of GRAPHENE's added security layers, with 85% opting for the COMBO.” - Edouard Vanham, Co-founder & COO. Last but not least, LIQUID is the convenient mobile app that connects users real-time to the blockchain without ever exposing their private keys. “What sets NGRAVE apart is the seamless integration of these three products, never compromising on security, always achieving a frictionless experience.” - Jean-Jacques Quisquater, 2nd reference Bitcoin whitepaper.
The heart of the solution is the NGRAVE Perfect Key. “When looking into existing key creation processes, we realized there were serious security gaps. So we reinvented the way keys are generated and also overcame the limitations of today's widely used mnemonic wallets.” - Ruben Merre, Co-founder and CEO.
Indiegogo backers and pre-order clients will receive their devices over the course of the next few weeks. NGRAVE's shop will remain closed until the next batch of devices is ready. In the meantime, those interested can subscribe to the waiting list. “We are experiencing very high demand while our supply will be limited for the new year; be the first to be informed by subscribing to the waiting list" - Edouard Vanham.
In NGRAVE's founding year 2018, cryptocurrency theft topped USD 2.5 billion. In the single quarter of Q3 2021, hacks exceeded the USD 1 billion mark. Going into 2022, the security problem NGRAVE set out to solve has never been more pressing.
ABOUT NGRAVE: NGRAVE is a blockchain and digital asset security provider making the safest and easiest to use products in the industry. NGRAVE's product suite consists of the fully offline touch-screen hardware wallet ZERO, the only financial product boasting the highest security certification in the world, EAL7.
