The TravelCoin Foundation (TCF), the charitable organization that works to use digital currency and Blockchain technology to improve the travel industry and its impact on communities worldwide, was a sponsor at the Third-Annual DC Blockchain Summit 2018 in Washington DC, March 7-8, 2018.
We recently returned from the Chamber of Digital Commerce Blockchain Summit in Washington, DC. This Summit was a gathering of more than 600 participants featuring discussions from global thought leaders on a range of topics, including: key market developments, initial coin offerings, bitcoin futures and ETFs, trading and investing in cryptocurrencies, smart contracts, legislative and regulatory trends, and more.
我们刚刚从在华盛顿哥伦比亚特区召开的数字商会区块链峰会返回。 本次峰会吸引了超过600位与会者参加，邀请了全球思想领袖就一系列议题进行讨论，包括：关键市场的发展、首次代币发售、比特币期货和ETF（交易所买卖基金）、在加密货币上的交易和投资、智能合约、立法和监管趋势 ， 以及更多。
TravelCoin Foundation was very proud to be a featured Sponsor for the event and to spend one-on-one time with government and commerce leaders from around the globe. We joined companies like accenture, bloq, KPMG, Nasdaq, and Microsoft. We were also very excited to have the Founders from our amazing Corporate Sponsor, MyTravelBiz, join us. Atif Kamran and Geraldine Aquino were able to make time in their very busy world travel schedule to come share the vision for MTB and our partnership. Together we were able to present all the ways we are changing the world, together. And these global leaders were not only interested in our revolutionary approach to the TravelCoin ICO but also to the focus for both our companies. To read the Press Release, please click here.
TravelCoin基金会非常荣幸的能够成为该活动的特色赞助商，并与来自全球各地的政府和商业领袖一对一地共度时光。我们加入了像accenture，bloq，毕马威，纳斯达克和微软等公司的行列。我们也非常高兴能有来自我们杰出的企业赞助商MyTravelBiz的创始人的加入。 Atif Kamran和Geraldine Aquino在他们非常忙碌的世界旅行日程中腾出时间来分享MTB的愿景和我们的合作关系。 齐心协力，我们一起展示出了我们改变世界的所有方式。这些全球领导者们不仅对我们的TravelCoin ICO的革命性的方法感兴趣，而且对我们两家公司的关注点也很感兴趣。要阅读新闻发布信息，请点击此处。
We shared this vision with industry leaders like Mr. Keiichi Hida, the Head of the Japan Blockchain Association and Mr. Rick Shaddock, Executive Director of Digital Currency Association and a US Bitcoin Ambassador. We also spent a great deal of time speaking to Mr. Douglas Lee, with the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office and many, many other experts. Universally, our level of transparency, our self-regulatory cap per Subscriber, and our approach to offer the ICO to ordinary people in order to assemble 1 million Subscribers all resonated with these experts.
我们与日本区块链协会负责人Keiichi Hida先生和美国区块链协会的执行董事以及美国比特币大使Rick Shaddock先生等行业领导者分享了这一愿景。 我们还花了很多时间与香港经济贸易办事处的Donald Lee，和许多其他专家一起交谈。 不谋而合的，我们的透明度水平、我们自我监管的对每位用户的购买上限，以及我们向普通民众提供ICO以达到100万用户的方法都与这些专家产生了共鸣。
By the end of the Summit, we attained complete respect from each person we spoke to. And these 600 people went back to their countries, their companies, their associations, with the names TravelCoin Foundation and MyTravelBiz in their heads and hearts. As we continue to find these industry opportunities, we will share all the exciting news how we are spreading the word about TCF and MTB and the remarkable reactions we continue to receive from Blockchain and ICO experts. For a brief message from the Summit, see below.
在峰会结束前，我们得到了每位与我们交谈的人的完全的尊重。 这600人返回他们的国家、他们的公司、他们的协会，他们的脑海和心中都会留有TravelCoin Foundation和MyTravelBiz的印象。 随着我们继续发现这些行业机会，我们将继续分享所有令人兴奋的消息，有关我们如何传播关于TCF和MTB的事情，以及我们不断从区块链和ICO专家那里获得的极好的回应。 阅读来自峰会的简短信息，请点击此处。

At TravelCoin Foundation, partnership are very important. Just as our relationships with every Subscriber matters, so does growing the global awareness of our mission and ICO offering through professional Partnerships. Our Corporate Sponsor, MyTravelBiz, is a perfect example how this synergy works. We are very excited to share that we have a second Corporate Sponsor located in Dubai. Spurt Car Rental joined us at the MTB Founder Circle Conference last week in Dubai to announce this new relationship. We look forward to Spurt Car Rental customers being given the opportunity to use TravelCoins for part of their rental costs. Just one more way we are providing value to our cryptocurrency before the ICO is even over. So, if you are in Dubai and need a car - make sure to visit Spurt!
在旅行币基金会，合作关系非常重要。 正如我们与每位用户的关系很重要一样，通过专业的合作关系来提高全球对我们的使命和ICO发售的意识度也很重要。 我们的企业赞助商MyTravelBiz就是这种协同效应的完美例证。 我们非常兴奋地宣布位于迪拜的第二家企业赞助商加入我们。 Spurt 汽车租赁上周在迪拜的MTB创始人圈会议上与我们一起宣布了这一新的合作关系。 我们期待Spurt汽车租赁的客户有机会使用旅行币来支付他们的部分租车费用。 这就是在ICO甚至还未结束之前，我们为我们的加密货币提供价值的又一种方法。 所以，如果您在迪拜，需要一辆车 - 一定要去Spurt租车！
Here at TravelCoin® Foundation, we've been busy completing numerous projects leading up to our big launch, but we're definitely not stopping there.
Take a look at our immediate projects below:
DEMOCRACY ON BLOCKCHAIN
Voting system smart contract for DAO and for different projects by TravelCoin holders. TCF is a community based not-for-profit company where we empower our Subscribers to elect Directors through a Smart Contract voting system to run this Foundation. This is a sign of a true democracy using the Blockchain technology.
In order to help TravelCoin Foundation Subscribers, TCF has launched a Secondary Market, an internal trading platform to trade TravelCoin only amongst Subscribers of TravelCoin. This facility has a number of benefits to TCF Subscribers. During the ICO period when TravelCoins are not available on the open markets, instead of waiting until the end of the ICO to start trading, TCF Subscribers can trade their TravelCoins amongst themselves right way. There is a limit on the maximum purchase a subscriber can make to receive TravelCoins. Those Subscribers who want to acquire more TravelCoins can use this Secondary Market and buy more TravelCoins from those who want to sell.
PRIVATE PEER TO PEER COMMUNICATION
The future of communication is changing rapidly while at the same time there is an increased demand for higher levels of security-locked communication channels. The blockchain provides the optimum solution to the biggest problem in communication, that of placing trust in a third party for data security with a single authoritative entity for trust. Using the same authentication protocols currently used to transfer digital currency from secure wallet to secure wallet, TLC plans to launch a global IM system which will have multiple applications within the travel industry.
And there's even more to follow with our world-changing future projects.
Join our global family when we launch on September 2, 2017.
TravelCoin® Foundation believes the Global Internet is a basic human right that should be made available free to everyone without barriers.
TravelCoin Foundation believes the Global Internet is a basic human right that should be made available free to everyone without barriers. And, while there are more computing devices in the world than there are people, only 60 percent of the world has access to the Internet. And, while the cost of devices, from phones to tablets, is lessening year over year, the cost of data plans around the globe continues to be largely unaffordable for many people. Couple that with the lack of an internet infrastructure in many remote areas and developing countries, and the gap becomes obvious.
There are several great organizations already addressing this need through innovative programs. From miniature satellites that can canvas the globe to free public Wi-Fi hotspots that have been placed all over New York City and, now, India, these companies are making giant strides towards making free internet a reality.
TCF will work with existing studies and programs that are paving the way to achieving this. We will reserve 10% of all our donations from the ICO to support these programs and to help them change the world.
The power of the ICO paradigm has certainly shown itself true in the last several years. These Initial Coin Offerings, while very similar to an IPO (Initial Public Offering), have shown a robust adoption by investors. Many experts agree that in many cases, token sales have replaced traditional equity financing.
There have been several ICOs this year that have launched and raised several million dollars in the first minutes. For instance, in April 2017, Gnosis ICO raised $12.5 million in just 10 minutes. While Aragon ICO hit their capitalization goal of $25 million in the first 25 minutes. With around 850 cryptocurrencies available the success stories continue to build. As a point of reference, had you invested $500 in the Amazon IPO in 1997, your initial investment would now be worth $27,556. And, while that is an amazing ROI, it doesn’t touch the returns seen on a wide variety of ICOs. Most notably, had you invested that same $500 in Ethereum in 2014, you would now have $365,000 from that initial buy.
IPO VS. ICO COMPARISON
With a dedicated reach to the masses, TravelCoin looks to include up to 1 Million Subscribers, allowing a greater group of ordinary people to participate by implementing our $500 investment cap. And, with over 8 million people taking flights every day around the world, the impact of the TravelCoin Foundation projects will be felt around the globe.
So, join us as a Subscriber and let’s change the world – together!
