Blockchain Edinburgh Product Launch
Three members of Blockchain Edinburgh will launch an alpha stage product for cryptocurrency trading. The first in a range of products, including international identification, property and ticketing, this real-time application provides traders with advance knowledge of currency pairs about to rise in price. A white paper for ICO will follow within the next couple of weeks.
In a 15 minute talk, Mike will briefly demonstrate the application: it's usefulness, it's capability to identify false pumps, and how it exposes the flaws in CryptoPing, an alerts app completed ICO achieving $2.5M+ investment last weekend. A 2 minute flash tour of the Edinburgh team's roadmap follows.
If you trade cryto-currencies, you'll not want to miss this, or the opportunity to use the app!
