BlocVehicle to Launch ‘Airbnb’ for Used Cars


This is a sponsored story. CCN urges readers to conduct their own research with due diligence into the company, product or service mentioned in the content below.

The company plans on bringing transparency to the used car market, offering rewards to users who keep their vehicle history up to date.

BlocVehicle is developing a platform which will allow private individuals to sell or buy used cars without involving any agents. Furthermore, the company plans on becoming an ‘Airbnb for cars.’ With the creation of the vehicle token (VCL), BlocVehicle has created the means to incentivize car owners to disclose their vehicle data.

BlocVehicle Comes From a Consortium of Five Companies

The $2.6 million initiative was born out of a consortium of five companies based in Singapore — BaNET Information Technology Co. Ltd., Saltware Inc., Softbase Inc., Compass Systems Inc., and ICK International Inc. Chang-ha Lee, BlocVehicle’s CEO, says the plan is to build ‘a foundation of a network that deals in ‘P2P vehicle transaction.’

The used car market has been on the rise, registering a total of 90 million transactions in 2016. By 2021, that number is expected to reach 128.42 million, at a compound annual growth rate of 7%. As for the rental car business, it exceeds 1.2 billion transactions with higher-than-4% annual growth rate. To top that, at any given moment, there are always 1.2 billion vehicles being driven.

BlocVehicle hopes to make use of these existing vehicles and encourage users to jump on their platform. Just like people can rent out their unused property on Airbnb, they should be able to do the same with their vehicles. What’s more, the platform will give you visibility over the vehicle’s history so you’d always know what you’re renting out in the first place.

Users will be able to upload pictures and vehicle data to the platform, such as changing oil, or parts replacement. BlocVehicle will enable P2P used car deals, bringing down the cost of selling a vehicle to users.

Grab Yourself a 70% Bonus — Pre-ICO Starts Today

The pre-ICO starts today, and you can get yourself a 70% bonus if you decide to support the project. At the moment, BlocVehicle is only accepting Ethereum, and it is requiring a minimum contribution of 1 ETH equalling a total of 8,500 VCL.

Once the ICO kicks-off on September 20, bonuses will range from 50% to 25%. Throughout the whole campaign, the VCL value will remain the same — 1 EHT to 5,000 VCL. The company has issued 1,000,000,000 VCL out of which 40% have been allocated to the ICO campaign.

EOS Price Rises Despite Claims of its Core Protocol Development Being Outsourced

Not much is happening across the cryptocurrency industry as of right now. Most currencies are seemingly stuck in a bit of sideways trading momentum, which can mean one of two things. In the case of the EOS price, it seems things are heading in the right direction, courtesy of a small gain over the past 24 hours. EOS Price Surpasses $5.2 It is interesting to see how the EOS price is evolving over these past few hours. Although there does not appear to be much momentum to push the value much higher, its trading volume is increasing rapidly. Thanks to $625m in volume, the EOS price has surpassed $5.2 once again. This is an interesting trend, albeit it remains to be seen how long this will last. With the EOS value noting this 2.23% increase, it is also the only top currency to note any real gains in the past few hours. It will be interesting to see if other coins follow this example prior to or during the weekend. If this trend remains in place, the EOS price will very well make its way to $5.5 over the next few days, albeit that will primarily depend on how the Bitcoin price evolves in the coming days. Even though the EOS price momentum appears to be turning a bit bullish, there are some doubts among cryptocurrency enthusiasts. A recent Hacker Noon article claims the EOS core protocol development may have been outsourced. Although that in itself would not necessarily be a big problem, it would certainly put a different spin on how the project is perceived as a whole. In more positive news, it would appear a new smart contract security auditing platform for EOS has gone live. The project is known as EOSpark SEC, and will offer a lot of expertise when it comes to smart contracts and applications making use of EOS’ native technology. As is always the case, there are concerns when it comes to smart contract technology and potential issues which may arise because of its use. 【First Release】https://t.co/FJqs2Go2hx luanched Smart contract security audit platform EOSPark SEC with well-known security audit service [email protected]_Team @Knownsecoff @EOS_io #Audit #EOS pic.twitter.com/m4QJMzr3u0 — EOSPark (@eospark_com) September 20, 2018 Furthermore, it appears things are heading in an interesting decision where Australia is concerned. EOS will be exposed to the Australian Dollar on the ACX platform. Albeit this may not necessarily be the biggest exchange among cryptocurrency users, it further confirms a lot of companies are looking for ways to improve their list of current offerings. Having more fiat currency gateways can do wonders for any cryptocurrency, including EOS. The new trading pair will be available soon! @EOS_io #EOS #trading #japan #korea #china #australia #exchange pic.twitter.com/XyCcmmrlFI — ACX.IO (@ACXTWEET) September 20, 2018 Although the positive developments may not necessarily make an immediate impact on the EOS price, it shows the ecosystem is still advancing as a whole. Even so, the weekend is around the corner, which will usually lead to some interesting price changes regardless. For the EOS price, it is impossible to determine what the future may hold in this regard, but things look relatively promising at this time.
