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.

IOTA Price Analysis: EOS, Litecoin, Lumens Open for Buyers

The accumulation in altcoins is bullish and shows the strength of underlying buy pressure. Therefore, with every decline in TRX, Litecoin, EOS and Stellar, savvy traders should find opportunity to buy with stops below immediate support. Let’s have a look at these charts: EOS Price Analysis Even with the widespread use of Bancor’s PEG Network that allow third party developers to integrate and create in-app autonomous trading and liquidity of any tradable digital assets. Besides this simple integration, users can create custom asset peg tokens, EOS is yet to recover. In fact, the accumulation of the last five days means our previous EOS trade plan stay the same unless there are sharp declines or revivals above $7. Needless to say, we expect the latter to be the case and that would be a breather for traders who have had to content with +80 percent drops of the EOS holdings. The reasoning is simple: EOS is moving inside Oct 15 high low. Because the bar is bullish and has high trading volumes, it’s likely that EOS bulls would have an upper hand. Litecoin Price Analysis That Litecoin stand a chance in the face of marauding bears is an understatement. Fundamentals as Litecoin core 0.17 and steadying of Bitcoin prices could contribute to resurgence but it’s more than that. From the chart it’s clear that the correction has been deep and even with that bears didn’t manage to break the $50 mark. In fact, it’s up roughly one percent in the last day. This is where LTC bulls are jumping in and yesterday’s rejection of lower lows attests to underlying bulls. As it has been the case, we maintain a neutral to bullish stand until after there are gains above $60 and $70 on the upside. This could provide the necessary impetus for further gains towards $90 and $110. Conversely, losses below $50 is a trigger that precipitates further losses towards $30. Stellar Lumens Price Analysis On a weekly basis, Stellar Lumens is up eight percent. Most notably though is the lack of momentum for prices to break and close above 25 cents, our minor resistance and bull trigger line. Moving on, yesterday’s doji means our last XLM trade plan is valid and until there are gains above 25 cents ushering in first catchers eyeing 30 cents, we shall retain a neutral to bullish outlook all thanks to Oct 15 price and market participation spikes. Similarly, losses below Oct 15 lows or 20 cents could see XLM sink to 8 cents further disillusioning the market. Tron Price Analysis The launch of TronBet, an on-chain gambling dApp has see TRX daily volumes eclipse that of Ethereum’s for the first time. As reported by NewsBTC, the game runs on top of the Tron blockchain and because of incessant demand, TRX related transactions stemming from the game topped 500,000 after being played over 10,000 times. What’s encouraging is the simple fact that Tron didn’t experience any down time because of its stellar throughput of 2,000 TPS. From the chart, we suggest risk-off traders to buy TRX at spot prices. This is so because of the long lower wick which signals demand in lower time frames. Then again, it’s steadying and the failure of sellers completely reverse Oct 15 gains points to underlying bulls. Alternatively, another loss risky route is to buy once there are gains above Sep highs or 3 cents as we align with previous TRX trade plans. First targets remain at 4 cents while drops below 2 cents bins this projection. IOTA Price Analysis As long as prices are consolidating as it is with IOTA, we retain a bearish stand. Backing this stand is the lack of price movements with the most notable being the failure of bulls to build enough momentum and reverse Oct 11 losses. Technically, this is bearish for IOTA but considering this year’s losses, it could as well be an ecstatic moment marking the end of a bear trend. That’s why we should stay neutral until there are gains above the minor resistance trend line and Oct 11 highs at 60 cents. Thereafter, traders can load up on dips with first targets at 90 cents in line with our previous IOTA price analysis. Conversely, losses below 50 cents affirm bears leading to losses towards 40 cents and even 30 cents for a 99 percent reversal of 2017 super gains.
