Verasity Is The Best Attention-Based Video Rewards Model

By: Scott Cunningham Verasity builds the infrastructure and tools for video publishers to serve rewarded video and loyalty programs to their viewers. Basically, you can earn VRA for watching what you already watch, like how Brave monetizes attention for its users.
Essentially from what I’ve gathered, it’s like Brave, but for videos. Also, it can work on Brave so you can earn BAT and VRA at the same time for anyone who is working with them. Anyone can apply if they publish on many sites like YouTube, Twitch, Vimeo, and more. I hope to see it expand to work with other alternative platforms like BitChute, Minds, BitTube, LBRY, etc. It works on top of any of these videos and just adds a simple little trophy icon that will turn green when you are done allowing you to earn VRA. I think this is great for users and creators because you can buy a large amount and run a campaign to incentivize full play-through and encourage more viewers to watch and be rewarded for their time at a low cost to…

LedgerX just launched the first physical Bitcoin futures contracts in the USA


Ahead of Bakkt and TD Ameritrade, LedgerX now offers physical Bitcoin futures contracts in the USA for both institutional and retail investors.  According to Coindesk: "Any U.S. resident with a government-issued I.D. can now trade futures contracts for real bitcoin." That is enabled by LedgerX newly released Omni platform 





In light of the negative statements made about Bitcoin by US president Donald Trump and the treasury department few weeks ago.  As well as the regulatory questions raised by Facebook Libra, the news of an approved Physical Bitcoin ETF is a very positive surprise for crypto supporters. 

 Erik Voorhes CEO of Shapeshift, made an announcement on Twitter stating:  "Pretty dope... Moreover, customers don’t need to put U.S. dollars in to bet on the product. Chou explained that traders can buy contracts using bitcoin." Traders now can simply deposit bitcoin instead of dollars when purchasing a contract. The CEO of LedgerX, Paul Chou explained in detail "not only are they delivered physically in the sense that our customers can get bitcoin after the futures expires, but also they can deposit bitcoin to trade in the first place,” he said. “Cash-settled is cash-in and cash-out, we’re bitcoin-in and bitcoin-out." 

Coindesk explains that for the first time Bitcoin can be used as a collateral for a contract that is sold by a regulated company. And that brings significant advantages

  • No need to wait on time limitations from the banking systems, such as wire transfer times, and business hours. Ex: Bitcoin can be traded anytime and anyday while banking system stops on weekends.
  • Physically-settled contracts can potentially be less sustainable to manipulation than cash-settled futures contracts.
  • No need for contact with the banking system. Cryptocurrency, in this case is the only collateral. 

Few competitors will certainly come along now that LedgerX has received the necessary CFTC approvals. As for the price, Bitcoin has shown a 3.8% increase in the last 24 hours.
