Blockchain Projects Roadshow - Grant Baker, Yuriy Lavor, Nate Llorando, Ryan D. | SVIEF
1:14AM Sep 30, 2018
So now, ladies and gentlemen,
let's welcome Bizkey, Bizkey's Grant Baker, Chief Data engineer, and
they gonna do a little bit of a roadshow here.
Okay, let's give it up for grant.
Alright, I like to take a quick poll before we start. Who hears from China? Go ahead and raise your hand. Anyone from China? Okay. A few people, probably more so than the people who raised their hand. But that's fine. If you hear frequently travels for shopping and vacation. Raise your hand.
Yeah. travels to go shopping in vacation in other countries? Raise your hand. Okay, a few more. I don't know about all of you. But when I travel, I'm immediately drawn to things that are familiar to me.
A couple weeks ago, I touched down in Vietnam, and I'm an American, right. So where did I go to eat? Did I make a beeline for the most delicious Vietnamese food in which human
first night at McDonald's? Why did I do that? I go to these exotic places that are far away. But the first night I just eat burgers or hide in my hotel room, because I'm a little anxious on the first day.
So anybody else like that?
You know, I, I was told something interesting. I was told that all the Chinese merchants visiting San Francisco they all visit they'll they'll go where they'll go to Chinatown.
Why it's so familiar. What's the point I didn't understand. They all go to Chinatown sending in Singapore. They go to Marina Bay Sands is when they visit China Town in Singapore. I didn't understand why it's too familiar. But I did the same thing. I'm a little anxious. So I go to what is familiar to me,
travelers are anxious will merchants accept my preferred payment methods? Will they even speak my language
or person since Chinatown know this. So they do something interesting. They form a consortium. They share best practices. They share marketing, they cooperate to direct consumer traffic to Chinatown, and then they share the customer pool. Now they're all still competing, but they know that if they have some cooperation, they will all benefit.
The name of our project is bizkey.
bizkey will enable merchants to form partnerships, share data, direct consumer traffic and facilitate crypto payment at retail with our POS devices. And bizkey wallets will guide customer journey from start to finish delivering valuable data insights to optimize pricing inventory and marketing strategy for bizkey merchants.
Nothing think of a tailor in China Town, let's call him we if we agrees to share his businesses transaction data in our ecosystem. We're going to give him a software suite and a ledger for his transaction history. Now, Lee isn't a data scientist. But his software suite will talk to the aggregate database and deliver Big Data insights just released business, we can also find his highest value potential customers in his area and pay bizkey to put ads in their bizkey wallets and know exactly how effective the ads were.
They can also search for complimentary businesses in his area and formed partnerships. He can partner with the shoe store down the street, and they can give customers coupons redeemable at each other's stores to direct cross traffic. And these coupons can even check for first time customer status and avoid giving repeat customers and he discounts.
Consumers. Just download the bizkey wallet and start receiving rewards, perks. suggestions. When you touch down in a foreign country, we can go ahead and find the merchants that speak your language and accept your preferred payment methods. If you shop at a restaurant, we can give you a coupon for a nearby dessert shop. If you go buy a ticket. For a movie that doesn't start for a couple hours. We can direct you to cafe or arcade or bar so that you can kill time until the movie starts. There are many such event activated rewards and discounts that can be deployed in the bizkey ecosystem. Not only do you receive rewards and discounts relevant to your consumer habits, but when you patronize any bizkey merchant, you can receive common loyalty points redeemable at any bizkey business. Now, in a world where giant corporations know your email, your name, your phone number, your internet
internet purchase history, big data is just fraught with all sorts of privacy issues. But bizkey will change the game by not sharing your transaction data with third parties. Instead, we're going to allow others to come to us and conduct their data science on our aggregate database on our data science bizkey platform, nobody will be able to search the aggregate platform for your individual transaction history. Instead, they're looking at the aggregate data and it's all masked, your data is safe and sound bizkey won't even know your name.
Speaking of the data science platform, I'd like to introduce the next function of bizkey data science and market research. And
of course, all this functionality requires an ecosystem and building an ecosystem requires a huge user base. We are going to build off
of the merchant base of our strategic partners in China, which can consist of over 400,000 merchants in China. We're also rapidly acquiring merchants in Southeast Asia retailers in Southeast Asia are extremely warm to us because they went to capture the Chinese tourism market jewelers high end clothing, luxury brands, they want our help in directing consumer traffic they're trying these customers sometimes have problems making big purchases. Because of Chinese capital controls. These merchants want to guide customer journey they want to guide customers to the shops and facilitate big purchases with cryptocurrency tourists want to find establishments that speak their language and accept their preferred payment methods. bizkey is the solution for both ends
now with our vision and merchant base. It wasn't difficult to get our foot in the door with the right investors
and we're proud to have Jr, crypto bch and so many other supporting us. But what typically happens at this point in our product with projects like us in the blockchain spaces after you acquire the VC you go ahead and do an Ico but I'm thrilled to say that we're not going to do an Ico we're going to do an NCO, the first milestone coin offering. So
we are going to sell additional stake in our project with each milestone that we hit. And then we're going to come back to investors and sell additional stake in our project so that we can hit the very next milestone, we're taking a leaf from the traditional ABC funding system and we're going to keep ourselves accountable and transparent to all the investors so that you know exactly where the money goes. Speaking of milestones, the crypto community has one coming up on October 31 anybody know
it's the 10th anniversary of bitcoins white paper. And to celebrate bizkey is launching something called token day
all this so
we still have slots available for token day. So if you want to showcase your blockchain project, then just get in contact with us. that just about wraps up our project.
I didn't have time to mention everything. I wish I had time to go through every little detail with you. But go ahead and go to bizkey.io. To check out our website, check out our white paper, join their telegram, come find me later and say hello. I'm happy to talk your ear off about our project. Thank you all so much for listening.
Thank you very much grants for this very interesting presentation. Our next speaker is
Yuriy Lavor this is director of UMining.
Welcome ladies and gentlemen, let's give it up for Yuriy.
All right, thank you all super excited to be here. Thank you swear for hosting the event I like to start which is basically telling you that when you mine the cryptocurrency you truly contribute to the network. And of course all of us want to make money and won't be rich in Bitcoin. But to really change the curse of cryptocurrency, where it's going mining is going to be a crucial thing. Now for Bitcoin, we still have another 121 years to mine it. So crypto mining is not going anywhere. And since Bitcoin is the biggest cryptocurrency out there, then it kind of controls the market. Now right now we have a bunch of big manufacturers and of course, they're pretty much all from China like bit mean, and they control a lot what's happening with the crypto mining world. But we buy us actually understanding that and purchasing the miners ourselves and running either at home or using some type of services that we can truly be a part of it and perhaps be a bigger bit main someday.
Okay. So the agenda is I basically just want to tell you guys what the mining is. And you
truly become a note when you purchase the mining equipment. And anyone in the world can do it. And you can do it with either your pool by yourself. Or you can join another pool like bid means pool, for example. And
the economics is basically that when you have this machine, you are rewarded for approving transactions essentially. And even though the Bitcoin block rewards will go away in the hundred and 21 years, you're still going to be rewarded the transactions for years there are going to be in those rewards. So the incentives for the miners is huge out there. Now, we pretty much began in 2009 with CPUs. And as gradually we have grown in technology. We started using the GPU and then essentially a sick and now we have giant pools of a six and
to tell you how efficient and was it basically, most of it is started at home. And then when the big pool started to use it, primarily it was in China, because they have pretty much the cheapest electricity. But now a lot of the companies are actually moving to us, even bit main is actually moving to us, and they're opening up a location in Texas for 500 jobs. So they're going to have a huge impact even in us
now the AC breakthrough, the way it works is so
AC is designed to specifically for one algorithm. And there is mainly cryptocurrencies that come out and say that they are a sick resistant. However, as even last week, we saw that lira was actually broken through a sick and now you can mind vert coin and a coin. And the cool thing about it is that because it's a brand new minor, the ROI on it is so high, that essentially the break even point is two months. And of course, the environment for this is is crucial. And the pools already talked about there. Now the future of mining on there is going to be AI and there's going to be storage mining as well. But more importantly, I wanted to focus and tell you guys that it can be environmentally friendly, if you were to use when technology or hydro or even solar, something that UMining is working on right now as well that you can potentially use all sorts of different energy to power up your miner and become a node. So
if you're thinking about starting a mind, you should definitely see that solo mining comes with its negatives as well because it's hard to set up it's the minor can be very noisy and can overheat and now electricity bill is a lot when you mind at home probably have to pay some tax as well. And you really need professional care. So what we do what UMining is basically we do mining crypto sir cryptocurrency services for you. So if you're ready mining, we would take your machine and we would set it up and our data center and our data center is huge. It can hold up to 20,000 miners we already have planned to running there, you still control the pool that you want to join and the wallet that you open up, that's all yours you can transfer the money in and out whenever you lie. But we also help you to start with mining by basically purchasing the hardware from us and then we can help you resell it as well. So the
right now the whole news about mining is that the market is down it might be costly to mine. However, if you would use our model at UMining then you can see that if you were to just get the latest batch one minor right now then you can break even essentially in two and a half months. So what it means to you is that once you mind that crypto you can kind of pays for itself and then you can resell the machine and do it all over again. The most important thing that you need to know is that he doesn't have to be all Bitcoin or material mining you can mind whatever point you want and then you convert it yourself into another cryptocurrency okay and we will provide you with the 24 seven professional assistance will be for the maintenance will pay for the electricity and we were very comparable to what you would pay for electricity here so our prices are all displayed at UMining that I oh you're welcome you to send us the miners or see the store so right now we have at the store basically the AC miners and the GPUs personally I think he a basic ones are kind of winning the battle and there can provide you a much higher ROI. So it's good for you to invest as well into the basic one and we will help you resell it as the mining ROI will go down. Okay, so for you to understand that you can control the mining and you still pretty much have full control of butcher mind. We are really the hosting company for you. All right. And this will be our website and Facebook links. We have a team of 15 where our headquarters are in Santa Clara and we have
our facility in Pittsburgh so we're welcome to visit right there as well. We are moving into solar mining as well. So if you in the future environmentally friendly and I truly believe that if you just take a moment and understand that mining is not only for you to make money or to be rich and cryptocurrency it also is the future of cryptocurrency, how it's going to help the world and the way that you can start this if you're really mining, then you're probably exchanging and you're probably trading, then you're probably investing so all of those things will kind of fall through, fall in and you'll be able to educate. Educate yourself so much more on what cryptocurrency is. And again, you can definitely mind whatever coins that you want. We're just here to assist you. Now if you do have a large order over, let's say 100 miners, then we will be more than happy to help you with the all accounting system there. So we basically would transfer the currency that you want, whether it's Bitcoin, Ethereum or any other cryptocurrencies. Alright, so thank you guys. Thank you for listening. Our booth is 41. So please see us at the booth.
Okay, we got one more team to go and let's watch a video first.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is Humbyl fantasy sports. Now, let's welcome Nate Llorando.
Okay. You have to teach us how to pronounce his name.
Just Humbyl. Right. Okay.
And this is Ryan Deng. Okay. The first
cool video, right? I do apologize. We can bring them here. They all have a game today and tomorrow. Well, maybe next year. We'll try it.
That's what she said. My name is Nate Llorando. This is Ryan Deng. will be talking about our sports app. So
Humbyl is pretty much crypto. currency. fantasy. Sports. It's a proven concept already. Weird fan duel. DraftKings. Yahoo, boom fantasy, as far as that side of the market. What we're doing here is where decentralizing everything and
hopefully the rest of the world can join us and just use one currency which is our Humbyl coin.
You can see here apologies I'm wearing the same blazer
and Ryan is not so we have Ryan here in our rest of our team.
Our partners are called Cuse, ma he wanted to really come here today. But he has to be in San Diego for their game. Tomorrow. Since preseason started already. We have Seth curry, who is also a Steph Curry's brother. As you can see Steph Curry gave us some free advertisement right there.
And we have Jason Richardson who was a former Golden State Warriors Lamar Odom, who was a two time NBA champion Patrick Chung from the New England Patriots. He's the only two time Super Bowl champion is Chinese descent up a UNIDO from the Utah Jazz know, you know don't air Alex Kinsey. And we've recently added Shaquille O'Neal's wife Shaunie O'Neal. These are our top investors. We have Charles Kim from China Renaissance, john Ross from tenants coins. Zang Lu also from fusion fund, who also leads our advisors, team of advisors.
I have Ryan discuss the next pages.
Okay. Thanks, Nate. So I want to talk a little bar more about the problems we have on the fantasy sports platform. So
many of you, I think many of you are familiar with the fantasy sports platform. And you already know the problem is that it has high transaction fees and latency of the money transfer if you're moving money into the platform you're using, and also a lack of
transparency in the gaming process and the fair play. So at humbyl we come with a solution that
has two parts. The first thing is we want to we want to make a decentralized the fantasy sports fantasy sports platform. So we
were going to tokenize the fantasy sports platform by issuing our own fantasy sports token, which is humbyl coin, we call it humbyl coin. And
will benefit our fantasy sports platform with a faster transaction. And it is generally available everywhere and around the globe. And the second step that we are going we have a sports celebrity back model or as you have heard from Nate that we have a lot of sports celebrities that who will participate in these games and users will
can also join their game so talents them together.
Uh, let me give you some a group of statistics. So
fantasy sports players in 2009, we only have like 27 million people who who is playing who are playing. And in
eight years that insane 2017 it's more than doubled to almost 60 million fantasy sports players. And for
a theory, I'm honors because we are humbyl coin is based on Ethereum. So we have 3 million people actively actively use cryptocurrency that though that is based on research from last year.
So these are too fast growing markets. So here are our products. So the first thing is a humbyl coin. So it is a token we are going to use to tokenize the fantasy sports industry in the future. And it will increase in the value in the future if the demand rises and fantasy. Another thing is the humbyl fantasy sports platform. As I've mentioned before, that we really have a very strong celebrity back model that users can play with them. And
we are really focusing on easy and user for beginner friendly game logics that
will attract many beginners
here are some competitive advantages. So we really aim for a simple and user friendly interface. And we have strong celebrity back model. And
so our aim is to gain 300,000 users in the first 12 months. So that's so much about the details of our platforms and technology. vaccinate.
Thank you, Ryan.
All right, are planning the next three years. Eventually we're going to expand and sports we're going to get into soccer, ping pong, cricket, also Olympics in 2020. And
eventually we want to get into entertainment, maybe even the 2020 elections. It's just going to be based on predictive predictive base type of game.
These are our timeline. We've launched our private presale in April. We successfully raise more than half a million dollars in two weeks. We did our Ico but unfortunately there was a decline of Ethereum about 80%. So what we've done is we've discovered disregarded about over hundreds of KYC requests will eventually launched our new Ico once with succeeded in our private private sale for the
fantasy sports out
next year, beginning of next year first, and the first quarter, beginning of second quarter will be in the exchange market. And
we've also launched our free contest. So for
the celebrity fan base that don't know anything about crypto. They get to get to get to play in the contest for free, and if they get all three questions correctly. Then they get to me Kakuma, Seth curry plus a pair of tickets to the game and meet him after the game. We're available in iOS now. And hopefully you guys can download it. We have some call crews my autograph shirts in our booth. So if you guys do see us, don't be a stranger smile. And we might give you one for free.
And thank you so much. That's all for now. And we hope to see everyone joining our app.
