IoMob has today announced it’s received a six-figure investment into its Internet of Mobility backbone project from a leading Asian blockchain technology fund BlockAsset.

8th June, 2018. [Town], Estonia – IoMob, a forerunner in decentralized urban mobility and pioneering blockchain fund BlockAsset have reached agreement on an undisclosed six-figure investment to assist IoMob’s efforts to develop its open technology stack and forthcoming roll-out of prototypes in smart cities around the globe. Boyd Cohen, the CEO and co-founder of IoMob commented on this important investment:

“The IoMob team are honored to have BlockAsset, a pioneering fund for investing in promising blockchain startups that aim to change the world through the technology, be our first, lead investor as we prepare for our initial coin offering (ICO). It’s been our goal to have Block Asset on board from the beginning because we have shared values and global aspirations. The team at BlockAsset, led by David Lee, is phenomenal to work with and we are looking forward to a long-term partnership with them.”

The shared urban mobility marketplace is heating up with new entrants such as electric scooter sharing, public and private bike sharing services and even experiments with autonomous vehicles and buses. IoMob’s Internet of Mobility (IoM) Protocol combined with blockchain technology aims to provide a more powerful alternative to current innovations such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) model, which may use only an IoM protocol. Instead of setting up their own pricey systems of operation, urban mobility services can get operational faster using IoMob’s open source, secure blockchain-based system for business essentials like handling payments, customer registration and reputation management, and focus their efforts on building their brand and customer base.

According to Goldman Sachs, the global mobility marketplace is currently valued at $7 trillion (USD), while McKinsey estimates the shared mobility marketplace will continue to grow at a rate of 20% per year through 2030. The development of an open ecosystem of urban mobility operators that share access to infrastructure and client bases supports customer retention as a range of public and private mobility services sharing the same platform has the capacity to ensure customer needs are met.

Accompanying the investment, Bo Shen, General Partner of Fenbushi Capital and David Lee, Managing Partner of BlockAsset and Blockchain Professor at the Singapore University of Social Sciences have agreed to join IoMob’s global advisory board.

Mr. Lee stated: “We are excited about our latest investment on IoMob. Mobility can immensely benefit from decentralization; it is yet another area where blockchain technology can make a positive impact at a global scale by challenging incumbent monopolistic actors. IoMob’s vision for mobility is aligned with the values of decentralization, democratization and inclusivity, but at the same time, it is eminently practical. Moreover, they have a phenomenal team. We at BlockAsset expect great things from this gem of a project.”

IoMob is a blockchain-powered Internet of Mobility startup with its founders based in Barcelona and current incorporation in Estonia. IoMob is also co-founder of the Blockchain Cities Alliance, an initiative to promote the adoption of blockchain technologies in smart cities.

Block Asset is an investment company which leverages its years of experience in the digital asset space and strong industry relationships to co-invest in a portfolio of prominent digital assets.

“Bitcoin (BTC) Prices Yet To Hit Rock Bottom”: Bitcoin (BTC) Technical Analysis (June 18, 2018)

With every slide in the cryptocurrency market, Bitcoin dominance increases. As a matter of fact, Bitcoin ball park control stands at 40 percent in the last seven days or so. That’s when bears took more than $30 billion despite supportive news from the SEC. Going forward, it could be worse for cryptocurrency portfolios because any break below $6,000 and we might see BTC valuation dropping 85 percent from its ATHs to $3,000. Let’s have a look at these charts: From the News It is attack after attack but in the case of BitGrail, ordinary account holders are set to suffer. A while back, this Italian exchange was hit by hackers who made away with $187 million worth of Nano coin. Even though the operations of the exchange took a hit, they resumed normal services a few days later. However, with formal announcement by the exchange that they were not in a position to reimburse user funds because they strongly believe hackers took advantage of Nano’s blockchain weakness, the Nano Foundation refutes these claims. We have temporarily disabled the BitGrail exchange pending further notice. — BitGrail Exchange (@BitGrail) May 2, 2018 This inevitably means the court is the only center of arbitration and now through the orders of a Florence Court, where bankruptcy petition for BitGrail is on-going, BitGrail’s digital assets are under state custody. We cannot make solid conclusion as the hearing continues. 3000 users of the #BitGrail fiasco have filed a petition asking an Italian court to declare the entities that operated the Bitgrail exchange bankrupt.https://t.co/x3wfor4qe1 — DeusExMachina (@d1rtydan) April 27, 2018 Then again the CEO of BitGrail has been clear that there is nothing since the exchange is following court orders. Regardless, it’s clear that the exchange is in a poor financial situation and probably won’t repay victims. As litigation continues in Italy, authorities in South Korea are planning on creating a special economic zone for blockchain companies in the city of Busan. “We need a place to concentrate on the cryptographic industry in Korea like the Crypto Valley in Switzerland” This comes at the back drop of the country’s initial steps of totally banning ICOs and fostering an environment that isn’t supportive for crypto traders in general. #SouthKorea intends to launch a #blockchain center in Busan city to incubate companies and projects working in the sector. Modeled as “#Crypto Beach,” the development is reportedly inspired by Switzerland’s “Crypto Valley” in Zug.#Bitcoin #btc $btc $bitcoin #ETH #EOS #ICX — Hitman (@Hitman637) June 17, 2018 Because of this, most blockchain start-ups in South Korea offer their ICOs in other countries. So, to prevent loss, the only approach is to thaw their regulatory grip by creating such blockchain friendly zones. Of course, all things constant, this is positive for Bitcoin in the long haul. Bitcoin (BTC) Technical Analysis Weekly Chart Bitcoin Weekly Chart by Trading View Talking of Bitcoin hitting $3,000 may be pessimistic but here is the thing: Any break below $6,000 this week or within the next month and it would be catastrophic for coin holders in general. The web might even spread considering the positive correlation between Bitcoin prices and altcoins as we have been seeing in the last couple of days. Besides, even Trustory CEO thinks BTC prices are yet to bottom out and unwind the effect of Q3 and 4 2017 Tether pump. Price wise, it’s clear that BTC prices are trending around a key inflection point, a double bottom as the weekly chart shows. Overly, bears are in charge and we can draw a simple trend line between Q1 and recent Q2 highs to demonstrate that. In our previous projections, any up-thrust that lifts BTC prices above $8,000 will mean bulls are in charge and buying in line with the new shift of trend is practical. Conversely, it will be a journey back to $3,000 if sellers break below $6,000 as we have mentioned before. Daily Chart Bitcoin Daily Chart by Trading View Announcement by the SEC on June 14 was by all means timely. As we can see from the daily chart, that’s right at the main support line and initial bear targets at $6,500. Now, our trade plan based on these new events proposes buying but only when buyers push prices ideally past $7,000 and for conservatives at $7,800. Of course, with the past three candlesticks moving within tight trading ranges, patience would be an asset and would mean buying only once our trade conditions are met. On the reverse side where sellers drive below $6,000 and it would be a slide to $3,000.
