ACT is a decentralized funding platform for Activism and Social Good

It is supported by the ACT Foundation a Swiss non-profit whose purpose is the promotion of donation-led support that improves the extent and capability of citizens to hold the state accountable and make it responsive to their needs.

The Platform has its own publicly tradable crypto-token called CE7 that proposal curators hold. Curators are rewarded with a percentage of Platform revenues. To vote on proposals using the ACT App, you need to buy ACT. This is also a crypto-token purchased with Ethereum on the ACT App. It is not publicly tradable. The revenues from ACT purchases fund causes, support Platform development and promotion, and reward curators.


Proposals are submitted to the ACT Curation Engine where they are curated by ACT curators. Only activist proposals qualify for ACT funding and they are only funded if a quorum is reached during voting. Other proposals go directly to an Open Funding section of the App, a funding smart contract is created, and proposal-makers can crowdfund with links to their campaign page on the App.

The App Platform comprises two parts:

The ACT App | The ACT Curation Engine (ACE)

You can interact with the ACT prototype smart contracts on the Ethereum testnet using our basic Cordova Apps for testing purposes. iOS is on test-flight only and only available to our community of testers.

Do not send real ETH or CE7 to the testnet applications. You can obtain Rinkeby test Ether here.

Warmest regards,

ALMBank Platform To Improve Access To Crypto Labor

As the cryptocurrency market continues to expand, so too does the demand for labor serving that market. Unfortunately, platforms have not been available that allow people to find secure employment in the evolving cryptocurrency industry and to enable employers to find good, reliable talent.

ALMBank, an Ethereum-based platform that provides a barter backed labor pool, provides a solution to the demand for good employees in the fast-growing cryptocurrency industry.

In addition to offering new ways for finding and providing good labor, ALMBank supports a charitable culture by offering a forum for posting charitable enterprises in need of labor.

The founders envision ALMBank as a high-end, cryptocurrency job market focusing on helping startups, charitable enterprises and ICOs.

ALMBank has been designed to provide a higher standard for freelancing via the blockchain. The platform also will help freelancers develop higher standards of cultural innovation.

Labor Organization Needed

The industry’s growth has resulted in a large number of freelancers with cryptocurrency skills. However, outside of Reddit and other forums, none of this labor is organized.

ALMBank will save people coming into the industry from being forced to use inefficient forums and message boards.

Existing employee marketplace platforms currently charge high fees for both employers and employees. This system results in poor matches for the workers. None of the platforms operate on a labor backed currency to provide a sustainable demand and drive for an efficient labor barter system.

ALMBank will offer employers a flat rate, one-time hiring fee system as opposed to the existing 20% headhunter model that has sapped hiring budgets.

Employers will barter with freelancers for their services or pay them in ALM tokens.

There will be no membership fees to join the platform, only service fees for those fulfilling paid tasks. The platform will charge employers a 3% to 9% fee for administrative costs.

All ALMBank transactions will occur immediately, and no one monitors employee/employer exchanges. The platform will also offer offsite, third-party escrow for larger transactions, taking responsibility for payment delivery.

The platform will take measures to ensure fairness for investors such as providing historical and current data.

Focus On Charitable Enterprises

ALMBank will allow people to post charitable projects that are needed. Others will be able to apply to complete these charitable projects.

The charitable portion will be paid for by a 50/50 split of fees generated by the profit side of the platform. Half of the fee goes back as a charitable reinvestment, while the other half is used for covering business expenses like salaries, maintenance and growth.

The platform will also provide continued training via YouTube and personal development programs.

Platform users will own 5% of the platform, with tokens paid out on an annual basis based on usage at the given time.

Hard Assets To Provide Platform Stability

ALMBank will back 30% of the platform with funds raised by gold, silver and fiat to ensure stability. A monthly ledger will verify the deposits via Skype and Facebook or public keys on the ALMBank website.

The pre-ICO has been extended to Feb. 27.

The ICO will start on Feb. 27, then run for 30 days. The price will be 1,000 AALM equaling 1 ETH, without bonuses.

During the ICO, there will be time bonuses for early payments, bulk purchase bonuses and referral bonuses for both the referrer and the person referred.

There is a 99.999 million token cap, although the number of tokens raised in the crowdsale and presale combined will account for no more than 30% of the total number of tokens. Additional tokens will be sold at the platform’s launch.

The time bonus will be 15% at the start of the ICO, decreasing to zero at the end of the ICO.

The token contract will be based on the OpenZeppelin library.

Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference in Gibraltar: experts to discuss industry present and future

Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Gibraltar will take place on February 8, 2018. It is a conference dedicated to cryptocurrencies, blockchain solutions and ICOs.

Previous year, the international company organized two conferences recognized as the largest ones in Eastern Europe: Bitcoin & Blockchain Conference Moscow and Bitcoin & Blockchain Conference Kiev. In total, they brought together 3500 attendees. In 2017, 13 other conferences of this series took place in Russia, Europe and Central Asia.

Gibraltar: center stage

Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Gibraltar will feature the reports of 12 experts from different countries. According to the organizers, the pool of speakers is being expanded.

Keynote speakers:

Garry Nuttall, UK (Managing Director at Distlytics Ltd). Topic: blockchain technology regulation in Gibraltar and other countries. In his report ‘Will 2018 be the year that Blockchain is Regulated?’ the speaker will consider the most likely ways of how legislation on blockchain will change in 2018.

Arwen Smit, UK (Co-founder & CMO at DOVU). Being an experienced expert in logistics, business coach and mentor of startups, Arwen Smit will talk about how blockchain use in freight and passenger transportation will become a driver of mass application of the technology.

The conference will also include the reports of Kambiz Djafari (Germany), CEO and Co-founder of (‘What is a token economically?’), Mohammed Tayeb (UK), Co-founder of Medicalchain (‘Blockchain in the healthcare sector’), Bogdan Maslesa (Cyprus), Founder of Universal Crypto (‘The Importance of Blockchain Education’); Juan David Mendieta Villegas (Belgium), CEO at Keyrock (‘How do we build a fair and efficient capital infrastructure?’) and others.

Exhibition of innovations and discussion of topical issues

In addition to speakers’ reports, the conference will feature a number of activities:

  • exhibition area for developers of blockchain innovations (blockchain-based software developments and equipment for the cryptocurrency industry);
  • pitch session of the exhibitors;
  • panel discussion on ‘DLT Regulations, legal advice and ICO guidelines’.

Why Gibraltar?

In October, Gibraltar authorities announced the legislative rules for blockchain companies and cryptocurrency exchanges, introducing a project of the corresponding law.

The regulation in this sector is suggested to encourage innovations. The introductions will become effective in January 2018.

Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Gibraltar is aimed at revealing legislative novelties, answering related questions and helping the blockchain community to organize the work efficiently according to the new rules.
