What is Blockchain.io?

Blockchain.io - Your Gateway to the Internet of Value
Blockchain.io is an upcoming cryptocurrency exchange based out of Paris, France. Founder and CEO, Pierre Noizat, founded one of Europe’s first EURO to Bitcoin fiat exchanges, Paymium, back in 2011, which has been hack-free since 2013.

Blockchain.io is an exchange with a centralized orderbook for rapid and efficient trading, and offers the option of decentralized settlement so that users may trade safely in a trustless manner.

Blockchain.io serves as a hybrid semi-centralized exchange (a solution Vitalik Buterin has praised in the past) as they provide the speed and reliability of a centralized exchange, with the safety and security of a decentralized exchange with users not being required to deposit funds on the exchange in order to trade. Blockchain.io will additionally offer advisory and technology services for projects and companies that are seeking to launch ICOs in the near future.

With high standards set to comply with regulations, the Blockchain.io team seeks to remain as transparent and compliant as possible in all of their practices. This includes working closely with the French government and authorities in advising on upcoming crypto regulations, as well as independent experts conducting technical and financial audits on the exchange.

Blockchain.io is currently in the middle of the crowdsale for their BCIO tokens, which is set to finish October 25 2018, 6:00 AM UTC. The beta version for the exchange is set to be released in the coming weeks, with the launch of the official exchange in November 2018.

Blockchain.io’s Vision

In partnership with Paymium, Blockchain.io seeks to become the #1 European cryptocurrency exchange by 2020. This vision is accomplished by helping the expansion and growth of the “Internet of Value” by serving as a gateway allowing new users and traders to enter the digital world of cryptocurrencies.

Blockchain.io Features

■Decentralized settlement through use of cross chain atomic swaps
■Leveraging Paymium’s advanced technological architecture and software
■98% of funds kept in cold wallet as a strengthened security measure
■Integration and implementation of advanced cryptographic protocols leveraging Lightning Network, Rootstock, Tumblebit technology, and more
■Liquidity services for traders, markets, and projects
■Peer to peer lending and proprietary lending for users are available
■New token listings and token airdrops to BCIO holders
■BCIO utility token provides users with discounted trading fees and survey participation rights for new listings and more

Paymium

Paymium is Blockchain.io’s parent company and is Europe’s first Bitcoin exchange founded in 2011 that also offers a service compliant with European regulations. Paymium has over 180,000 users that will be incentivized and encouraged to join and trade on Blockchain.io’s ecosystem once it is launched.

Paymium has received venture backed funding from notable venture capitalists and hedge funds such as Gattaca, Newfund, Kima Ventures and more. Dedicated in the success of Blockchain.io, Paymium has committed $2.3M of its own treasury funds to further support the development and operations of Blockchain.io (No BCIO tokens were involved in this commitment).

BCIO Token Use
-Discounted Trading Fees
-Payment of platform fees using BCIO token
-Weighted token airdrops from new token listings
-Survey participation voting rights for the development of the exchange and new token listings
-Loyalty rewards and campaigns for BCIO token holders

Crowdsale
Blockchain.io is currently in the third week of their crowdsale and their crowdsale is set to finish October 25, 2018, 6:00 AM UTC. There is no softcap for the crowdsale as the exchange will be developed regardless of the total amount raised.

In the first 7 days of the crowdsale, $1.2M USD was raised despite the current market conditions. All unsold tokens will be burned, meaning the exchange could enter the market with an usually low market cap for a project of this stature

Is there a prize for being the first entry? :)

·

This is great, you're definitely the first one. We will keep this in mind the next time we host a writing contest to reward those that make submission early, especially for the 1st Submission. I'll keep you updated surrounding Bonuses and Extra's

·

Sometimes I think holding off till the end to submit has advantages. More time to edit, assess the competitors submissions and so on. To counter this, maybe some sort of incentive for early entries is a good idea. Upvotes for the first X entries, @steembasicincome share (mutually beneficial in the long run) or some other bonus will create more hype and awareness for your competition and likely more entries. Just a little free feedback for your consideration.

Steem is in the running to win a listing on the netcoins cryptocurrency ATM network.
