ARGENTINA, November 23, 2020 – Latin American Bitcoin & Blockchain Conference (LABITCONF), the longest running bitcoin and blockchain event in the region, today announced a new round of speakers and agenda topics for their event on Dec 7-12. Despite the global pandemic landscape, LABITCONF will continue to provide quality content on Bitcoin technology, as well as international monetary policies, legal challenges and the most innovative Blockchain implementations.

In LABITCONF’s  digital event this year, different technologies and proposals will be combined to make the saying “Not just a conference” a reality. Unlike most virtual events, LABITCONF will include, in addition to regular sessions,  five 10-minute videos with exclusive, informative content in a three-dimensional format for attendees to learn and discuss the most important topics in bitcoin and blockchain.

LABITCONF is known for proposing different points of view on issues on the public agenda. The event achieves this by creating a highly curated agenda with industry leaders like Andreas M. Antonopoulos, Alena Vranova, Stephan Livera, Alex Gladstein, Bruce Fenton, Matthew Mežinskis, Griff Green, Jordi Baylina, Aron Coeli, Alejandro Planzas, Rocelo Lopes, Diego Gutierrez Zaldivar, Sergio Lerner, and Adrian Garelik.

Historically the conference has supported the formation and growth of communities in the Latin American region. This year, faithful to its history, dedicated agenda content will be focused on the main communities in the region: Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia and Venezuela, Alianza Blockchain Iberoamérica, Bitcoin Argentina, Fundación Bitcoin Iberoamérica, EspacioBitcoin, and La Bitcoineta. In an effort to make knowledge more accessible, this year’s event will also incorporate introductory content in Spanish for enthusiasts and beginners.

LABITCONF will be defined by 5 themes that structure each day of the conference, followed by a ‘Party on the Moon’ on the sixth day of the event. LABITCONF’s goal is to understand and reflect on how technology continues to evolve and redefine not only finance, but the world as we know it. In addition to the valuable content that characterizes LABITCONF, there will be optional streaming panels and other expert chats.

“The financial chaos that has prevailed in Latin America has made it a revolutionary region in the adoption of new technologies and innovations in cryptocurrencies,” said Rodolfo Andragnes, LABITCONF Chief General Coordinator. “Representatives from Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia and Venezuela will take to the stage to debate multi-sectorally and tell the global audience about the reality of Bitcoin and Blockchain in the region.”

LABITCONF 2020 Agenda Topics include:

  • Pillars of Bitcoin: The fundamentals of Bitcoin as a crypto asset. Privacy and data. Internet of value and Bitcoin as a time reserve.

  • Policy and Regulation: Current context, monetary issue and the role of Central Banks. New challenges looming regarding the future of money.

  • Bitcoin development: What is the roadmap for Bitcoin, how this technology evolves and in what ways the industry is going to change.

  • Decentralized Finance: A tour of the latest in Decentralized Finance (DEFI) and its comparison to Centralized Finance (CEFI). Issues such as decentralized identity will also be addressed.

  • Social impact projects: Community initiatives and concrete cases of how the blockchain is being used to promote positive actions towards a more just society.

LABITCONF invites all public and private institutions, investors, entrepreneurs, and the general public interested in the technical, political, and legal foundations of blockchain technology to attend. The event will explore the  impact that cryptocurrencies have on the Latin American and global scene, and their potential for social and financial transformation.

Decentralized Search Engine Presearch Tackles Misinformation and Fake News with Time-Stamped Search Results

Presearch is the first search engine to integrate WordProof’s timestamping, helping people verify and trust online information

Midland, Ontario, Canada — Presearch, a community-powered search engine that protects privacy and delivers more neutral, unbiased results, today announced it will label time-stamped pages in search results, a key component in combating the spread of misinformation online. Presearch is the first search engine in the world to integrate WordProof’s universal blockchain-based timestamping ecosystem, which shows when information was last edited or updated and helps to verify the source, improving trust and transparency on the internet. WordProof time stamping will be added to search results on Presearch.

“We’re very excited to work with WordProof to facilitate more transparent, informative search results on Presearch,” said Colin Pape, founder of Presearch. “By providing tools like WordProof to searchers, we are furthering our mission to empower people with search choice and quality results, while rejecting the bias and manipulation that is all too common online.”

Confidence in the internet is rapidly declining due to fraud, fake news, and privacy concerns. Research shows that 86 percent of people believe they’ve been exposed to fake news. Google accounts for 92 percent of all searches worldwide; search engines act as a gateway to online information, and too often, they act as filters that deliver search results based on biases and algorithms that do not serve people’s best interests. With 2 million registered users, Presearch offers an alternative to Big Tech with a decentralized, node-powered platform that represents the interests of the community and uses blockchain technology to align all stakeholders across a single unit of value, the Presearch PRE Token.

“WordProof is using blockchain technology to create a global standard that helps people verify the origin of the content they find online,” said Sebastiaan van der Lans, Founder of WordProof. “We are proud that WordProof and Presearch are leading by example, proving it’s possible for search engines to create a more trusted web.”

WordProof brings verifiable trust to digital publishing and commerce. Presearch and WordProof have aligned to bring trust to the internet through transparent, unbiased, and verifiable search results; while making it a priority to educate consumers on identifying misinformation as they share their progress in completing the full integration.

WordProof’s Timestamp Ecosystem enables consumers and search engines to verify the source of content, as well as see when content has been changed or updated. Last year, the company received €1 million from the European Commission as the winner of its ‘Blockchains for Social Good’ contest, and a grant from Block.one to scale its service.

About Presearch

Presearch is building a sustainable decentralized search platform that represents the interests of the community, will be open source and transparent, and uses blockchain technology to align all stakeholders across a single unit of value, the Presearch PRE Token. With more than 2 million registered users and 1.3 million searches per day, Presearch is one of the world’s most popular blockchain projects.

About WordProof

WordProof was founded in 2019 and won Europe’s Blockchains for Social Good contest in 2020. The Dutch startup is on a mission to restore trust in the internet. Fraud and fake news make the Internet unreliable. WordProof’s Timestamp Ecosystem now enables consumers and search engines to verify the source of the content. WordProof is advised by Joost de Valk, founder of the world’s most popular WordPress plugin, Yoast SEO.

Emiswap

Designed to provide high rewards for liquidity providers, EmiSwap will launch gamified NFT farming in Q3 2021

Dubai, UAE — May 5, 2021 — EmiSwap (https://emiswap.com), the first community-governed decentralized exchange (DEX) to provide high rewards for liquidity providers (LPs), today announced their plans to launch gamified NFT farming mechanics on its DEX protocol in Q3 2021. EmiSwap’s NFT farming will feature a new approach to liquidity mining by rewarding users with Ordinary, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary, or Mythic NFT cards depending on how long and how many assets they stake. Liquidity providers can vest for longer periods to receive significantly larger mining benefits compared to other protocols in the sector.

Despite recent price drops, NonFungible.com reported the average price of NFTs increased significantly during the first quarter of 2021 with over $2 billion spent on NFTs alone. Unlike the traditional NFTs that mainly consist of arts and collectibles, EmiSwap’s NFTs feature the best combination of gaming and DeFi by gamifying NFT farming. EmiSwap’s Magic Card NFTs can be used to maximize earnings, sold on marketplaces, and appropriated as gaming pieces in competitions like Card Wars, a game launching in Q4 2021 inspired by the famous card games Magic: The Gathering and HearthStone. Each Magic Card will provide different rewards including, ESW token bonuses, farm-speeding powers, rare collectibles for Card Wars, and more.

EmiSwap is currently distributing limited-edition NFTs to liquidity providers as an added benefit of their loyalty program. At this stage, NFT items can only be obtained if you supply liquidity and pass Total Value Locked (TVL) milestones that increase in increments of $100,000. The final milestone is $100 million TVL. The campaign consists of 1,000 milestones to serve as a reminder of the ancient Chinese proverb, “A journey of a thousand miles, begins with a single step”.

Last week, EmiSwap announced the successful completion of the Seed round with over $1.4 million raised. The DAO-governed protocol is currently in the private investment round to provide further opportunity for investors who couldn’t participate in the overbooked Seed round. The private round will conclude at the end of May 2021 with the launch of multiple launchpad listings.

EmiSwap is the first project of the EmiDAO alliance and its members who are actively involved in managing and supporting the EmiSwap DEX. The EmiDAO alliance includes Alpha Sigma Capital, DigiFinex Exchange, Bitmart Exchange, Emirex Exchange, HollaEx Exchange, IDCM, and Everest Group.

Our team has been tirelessly working around the clock, answering emails and taking calls. Not only are we massively oversubscribed, but we have a considerable waiting list above our hard cap.”

“We are thrilled to partner with DeFi leader, EQIFI, to provide global accessibility to financial products and services,” said Saeed Hareb Al Darmaki, founder of Sheesha Finance. “Our roadmap includes partnering with the strongest projects to grow the DeFi ecosystem with integrity and transparency and we have found a strategic partner in EQIFI, who also supports that vision.”

“As DeFi projects and products mature, we hope to grow our partnership closer,” said Brad Yasar, EQIFI CEO. “Sheesha Finance is increasing accessibility to new DeFi projects with its unique model. This vision aligns well with EQIFI’s goals and we are excited about this partnership.”

By harnessing the power of blockchain technology and EQIBank’s network spanning 180 countries and territories, EQIFI is positioned to become an industry world leader, helping to democratize financial products previously only available to the privileged few.
