First Nordic Shipping ICO Announced

Bitcoinist    2018-03-06 06:00:25

Copenhagen, March 6, 2018 – Danish company Blockshipping, the creators of the Global Shared Container Platform, (GSCP), announces ICO (Initial Coin Offering).


GSCP will allow the global container shipping industry to save USD 5.7bn annually through smarter handling of intermodal freight containers. Additionally, wide adoption of the platform will result in a substantial reduction of the global CO2 emissions of 4.6 million tons annually when fully utilized.

The container shipping industry today accounts for around 60 percent of all the world’s seaborne trade, but this hugely valuable industry has been troubled for years by challenges such as overcapacity, low freight rates, security threats, and increasing environmental regulations.

The global shipping industry needs increased efficiency and a fundamental digital transformation to ensure profitability in the future and to comply with environmental regulations.

Digital Transformation

Blockshipping is creating the GSCP platform, which will be both the first real-­time registry of the world’s approximately 27 million shipping containers and a joint platform for all players in the container shipping industry -­ allowing them to efficiently perform a wide range of transactions related to the handling of containers globally.

The GSCP platform will be based on blockchain and modern sensor technology, and it has the potential to reduce costs for the global shipping industry to the tune of USD 5.7bn annually and reduce the global CO2 emission by more than 4.6 million tons every year.

The Founder and CEO of Blockshipping, Peter Ludvigsen, who has been in the container industry for 39 years as a CIO for Maersk Line and a consultant for other leading shipping companies, explains:

In 2017, the world’s huge fleet of containers was used for transporting of all kinds of goods of a total value of around USD 12 trillion. But the problem is that we have no central registry of the many millions of containers constantly shifting location, incurring payments, and changing ownership. And this lack of real-­time tracking results in a huge number of empty containers being moved around unnecessarily.

The GSCP platform is the answer to the problem of the missing global real-­time container registry. And in addition, the GSCP will be the preferred global trading platform for all kinds of services related to container handling between a wide range of shipping industry players.

First Nordic shipping ICO

The GSCP ICO offers contributors a unique set of token features including the benefits of a Revenue Sharing Model as well as a Market Maker Fund that allows ICO contributors to sell their coins back to the platform at a floor price until Blockshipping has met certain fixed milestones in the development of the GSCP platform.

The ICO pre-­sale by invitation has started now, and the public token sale opens on April 15, 2018.

The GSCP ICO announced today is the first shipping related ICO conducted in the Nordic region.

“The GSCP platform is already funded by private angels and The Danish Maritime Foundation. But to further accelerate the development and adoption of the platform we are now conducting an ICO,” says Peter Ludvigsen, who continues:

It is important to emphasise that Blockshipping’s GSCP ICO is based on a real-­life business case validated by key stakeholders in the shipping industry and based on real and well-­defined savings and benefits for the shipping industry as well as for the environment.

Unique Token Features

After studying numerous ICOs on the market, Blockshipping has created a token model that includes a unique set of features for the benefit of the ICO contributors.

The token model involves the issuance of two different tokens:

  • The internal utility token, Container Platform Token -­ CPT
  • The external Revenue Share Token, Container Crypto Coin -­ CCC

CPT will be used for clearing and settlement of transactions between the users of the platform. These transactions will cover the many different services and fees related to global container handling. A percentage of the revenue from these transactions goes to a Revenue Share Pool and is passed on to the owners of the CCC tokens once a month via a reverse Dutch auction on the Ethereum blockchain.1

⦁ Please read more in the GSCP ICO white paper, chapter 5.  www.blockshipping.io

The GSCP token model also includes a unique ICO Market Maker Fund which allows everyone who acquires CCCs during the ICO to sell their coins back to GSCP at a floor price if they regret their contribution. Selling back CCCs is possible until Blockshipping has met certain fixed milestones in the development of the GSCP platform. Afterward, the money in the Market Maker Fund is released for further development of the GSCP platform.2

First ICO based on The ICO 2.0 Framework

Blockshipping’s ICO is not only the first Nordic shipping-­related ICO. It is also the first ICO to be based on a new Danish framework called The ICO 2.0 Framework, which will be launched in the next two months.

The purpose of the upcoming ICO 2.0 Framework is to increase the quality standards for ICOs making sure that future Danish ICOs:

  • are 100% compliant with Danish law
  • aim at the highest standards in terms of security and quality of coding
  • promote openness, transparency, and honesty
  • follow a strict code of conduct when it comes to communications and relationship management with the ICO stakeholder groups.

The ICO 2.0 Framework is being created by the leading Danish law firm Kammeradvokaten/Poul Schmith in collaboration with the Nordic fintech advisory firm Norfico.

How to participate in the ICO?

The ICO pre-­sale by invitation only starts today and the public token sale opens April 15. Potential contributors should register via the website www.blockshipping.io. Here, you can also read the white paper and sign up for Blockshipping’s newsletter. On the website, you can also find the detailed white paper explains the project in great detail.

分叉在即的以太坊,正在扰动行情
2月23日,以太坊官方网站更新了关于以太坊君士坦丁堡升级的最新公告。自1月17日君士坦丁堡的升级搁浅后,以太坊沉寂了已经有一个多月的时间。而随着7280000(以太坊原定升级区块高度)区块高度的日益临近,细数起来,剩下的时间也就只剩下5天左右了。在加密货币市场迎来了久违的将近一周的上涨趋势之后,加密货币分析师Alex Krüger表示:“当前的加密货币暴涨是ETH驱动的。上次ETH多头/空头比率达到如此高的水平是在去年11月价格暴跌60%之前。加密货币通常会在预期分叉之前上涨,并在分叉之后暴跌。”在他看来,ETH目前的价格呈现了一种令人不安的趋势。详情请戳:https://www.8btc.com/article/365042

EOS42:黑名单机制完整性解决方案提议
据 IMEOS 报道,EOS42 在 Medium 上发文提出优化黑名单机制解决方案。针对近日关于一个黑名单账户转移了 200 万 EOS 的事件,由于有节点没有及时更新黑名单导致黑客在被发现行为后可以继续转移 EOS。 EOS42 在文中提到,EOSIO的这个机制需要所有前 21 名出块者更新它们的黑名单。只要有一个出块节点没有及时更新黑名单,被盗账户就会面临资金被清空的风险。此黑名单机制的“漏洞”基本上给予单出块节点否决权力,违反了 DPOS 共识机制所采用的 15/21 原则。建议将废除所有黑名单账户的密匙作为临时解决方案,利用 eosio.wrap 废除黑名单账户的密钥能使我们有效地阻止任何资金损失,并恢复 15/21 之 DPOS 共识的完整性。

小葱APP讯,资深撰稿人孟永辉今日在其文章《远离数字货币陷阱,告别资本的区块链如何决胜新世代?》中表示,如果仅仅只是将区块链的落地和应用局限在发币或者ICO上,必然限制了区块链的应用,甚至可能会把区块链的发展带入到死胡同。告别以数字货币为终极目标的发展方式,寻找更多新的应用方式,正在成为区块链未来发展的主要方向。作为一种基础的技术,区块链最大的作用并非对于流量的收割,而是在于对B端行业的深度赋能。
