INS Aims to Put Grocery Shopping on Blockchain, Announces Unilever Expressed Interest and ICO Dates

MOSCOW, Oct. 4, 2017 -- INS, a new global project by the founders of Instamart grocery delivery service, today announced the initiative to build a decentralized grocery shopping ecosystem based on blockchain technology. Having declared the non-binding memoranda of understanding with Unilever – a leading FMCG company – INS plans to raise $60,000,000.

INS is disrupting the largest consumer retail market in the world. According to Persistent Market Research, the global grocery market will grow to $8.5 trln in 2020. Online sales of groceries are expected to reach over $300B by 2020.

"The grocery industry in its current shape is inefficient and controlled by retailers. For example, in the UK, there are over 7,000 manufacturers and 25 million households dependent on 4 key grocery retailers controlling 76% of the market. INS will adopt blockchain to cut the middleman – wholesalers and retail stores – to help consumers save up to 30% on grocery shopping," says Peter Fedchenkov, INS co-founder and CEO.

INS builds a scalable blockchain-based platform enabling consumers to buy groceries directly from manufacturers. Online decentralized platform powered by a self-regulated community of shoppers and suppliers eliminates the retailers from the purchase process. Smart contracts help both parts to facilitate trade and reduce risks and costs. Any manufacturer can list and sell products, gain customer feedback, and reward loyal shoppers. The first memoranda of understanding is signed with Unilever – one of the world's leaders in FMCG. In addition to savings for customers, INS will put manufacturers in full control of product pricing and listing.

Interactive 3D Image company will launch a $50M ARToken (ART) crowdsale as part of initiative to make 3D imaging for AR/VR as easy as photography.

Cappasity, a company in delivering an in-store browsing experience to online retail through interactive 3D images, announced today it is developing an AR/VR blockchain ecosystem designed to enable fast and easy AR/VR/3D content creation.

‘All the community actors should be economically motivated, and all economic actions are to be transparent and documented. Incentives should be structured within the community in such a way that content makers are fairly rewarded, copyrights of traded content are protected and high-quality content is promoted.

We envision a solution that naturally meets the above conditions and embraces a content-centric ecosystem view. The solution is to be based on the principles of a decentralized economy and will implement blockchain technology, which is able to address the fundamental copyright challenge.’ said Kosta Popov, Cappasity founder and CEO

The platform allows 3D content creators and distributors to monetize and share the fruits of their creativity via a tokenized ecosystem. The solution comes with a comprehensive array of features, including:

  • SDK and plugins to produce high quality AR/VR and 3D content;
  • Tools to enable embedding 3D content into web stores and mobile apps;
  • Powerful Cappasity AI analytics to handle customer interactions with 3D, creating a heatmap for each digitized product;
  • Compatibility with AR/VR devices.

“Top luxury retailers who have implemented our 3D imaging integrations are showing  conversion increases of as much as 30-40%,” said Kosta Popov. “We are excited to bring innovative content creators the opportunity to participate in the AR/VR content revolution with the utility ARToken (ART) to power the whole ecosystem.”

3D content is becoming a critical component in multiple verticals including gaming, entertainment, retail, art, education, and health. Cappasity will leverage the blockchain to become the global 3D/AR/VR content exchange ecosystem for the users, developers and businesses who will benefit from 3D image creation, embedding and trading. Cappasity ARTs can be earned by creating and sharing 3D/AR/VR content, and be used to buy or rent it.

The platform will be powered by ARToken (ART), a virtual currency for trading the content inside the ecosystem. The ARToken crowdsale will begin at the 27th of September and will last for 4 weeks. Cappasity platform, a beta-version of which was released in January 2017, plans to attract a total of $50m. Total investment in the company from VC funds and angel investors so far amounted to $1.8m.

70 percent of ARTokens will be distributed between crowdsale participants, with the remaining ARTs will be allocated to founders’ long-term endowment and early contributors.

To favor the AR/VR/3D community, two endowment entities are established: The AR/VR Innovation Fund and Reward Fund. Upon a successful token sale 20% of raised funds will be dedicated to the former and 10% will be allocated to the latter.

The first one is going to incentivize the developers of the best AR/VR/3D applications submitted to the Ecosystem to further release more high-quality products.

Within five years of the Cappasity Ecosystem launch, the ARToken remuneration is to be paid to developers. No binding terms are foreseen: developers will own their IP and will be free to publish or commercialize the apps and tools as they wish. The grant sizes and number of winners will depend on the remaining funds, nominee enrollment will be open all year round with no deadlines set.

The most active content creators and contributors will be rewarded systematically within the period of 200 weeks. After the official Ecosystem launch, the fund will be spent on weekly challenges in such a way that 0.2% of token sale revenue will be distributed each week as a reward fund. It will sponsor such competitions as a sculpting challenge, landscape parts, and best tutorial.

Stimulating prizes and rewards ares to be paid in ARTs. Awardees may spend these utility tokens on AR/VR/3D content and services listed on the marketplace. Moreover, these incentive measures will engage new Ecosystem participants and foster increasing ARToken turnover.

Cindicator, AI-Driven Financial & Crypto Forecasting Platform Developer, Raises $500K and Announced ICO Date

Developer of Hybrid Intelligence platform uses millions of decentralized analyst predictions from 135 countries and machine learning algorithms to provide hedge funds and institutional investors with precise forecasts. The project which is now at the pre-ICO stage, raised $500K and scheduled token crowdsale for September 12, 2017.

Cindicator, a fintech startup which has recently raised $500K and is getting ready for ICO, aims to tackle the challenges of predictive financial forecasting with AI and collective intelligence.

Built upon an unprecedented number of decentralized predictions processed by machine learning algorithms, Cindicator develops a Hybrid Intelligence platform for managing capital on traditional and crypto-markets.

The platform combines collective human intelligence (trading strategies, human forecasts and buy/sell signals) with artificial intelligence (machine learning model which integrates cleaning, clustering methods, linear regressions, Bayesian models, xgboost on decisive trees, genetic algorithms, and neural networks) to increase the accuracy of financial forecasts.

Motivated financially and professionally, thousands of analysts generate forecasts daily. They answer questions about price levels of different financial assets, macroeconomic indexes, and events. Machine learning models dynamically calculate weights for each forecaster, identify stable systematics in their errors, calculate corrections, eliminate noise, and generate final predictions and trading signals.

«Financial markets depend on future prediction on a daily basis. At what price and when to buy Facebook shares, Brent crude oil, the US dollar, or Bitcoin? In 2015, traders spent over $50 billion on financial market data, of which $4 billion was spent on predictive analytics. By 2020 this figure will increase approximately 6x. Combining crowd intelligence with machine learning model based on a variety of dynamic feedbacks, Hybrid Intelligence can provide the market with unprecedented forecasting accuracy,” says Mike Brusov, CEO of Cindicator.

Key benefits of Hybrid Intelligence include:

  • a technological and analytical infrastructure for the ecient and managing investors’ capital;

  • an opportunity for analysts to monetize their intellectual assets without risking their own funds;

  • tools and data for making investment decisions under market uncertainty;

  • indexes and ratings of crypto-assets.

Seed Investment and CND Token Sale

Cindicator also announced that it has raised $500K in seed funding. Evgeny Medvednikov, business angel who previously led Cindicator’s pre-seed investment, Megafon ex-CTO Igor Shirokov, and banker Michael Shtepman participated in the round.

The new funding will be used to accelerate the Hybrid Intelligence platform development and to create a new business model. To power the new model, the company will release CND tokens providing access to Cindicator’s indexes, data, services, indicators, information, and analytical products.

CND token pre-sale is scheduled to run from September 12, 2017, until October 12, 2017. During this time, 100% of CND tokens will be issued on Ethereum Blockchain by ERC20 token standard. CND tokens will be priced at $0.01 fiat price equivalent, purchase methods accepted include BTC, ETH, ETC, and LTC. The company aims to raise up to $15M during ICO.

CND tokens will be placed on exchanges, giving an opportunity to openly buy them, gain access to new products, or sell them to traders, analysts, or investment funds. Tokens cannot be sold to residents of the United States, Singapore, or other countries where the sale may require registration as a security.

Each CND token holder can obtain a different level of access to Cindicator’s indicators, indexes, data, services, information, and analytical products. The level will depend on the quantity of tokens in each holder’s possession which in turn will be influenced by each holder’s role in the decentralized ecosystem.

“By issuing CND infrastructure tokens we provide the community a new tool for accessing predictive financial forecasting. It allows us to ensure that the next step is taken towards utilizing all products and capacities of Hybrid Intelligence and creating infrastructure needed to make effective decisions under volatile conditions of the new economy,” says Artem Baranov, COO of Cindicator.

WayRay Announces Strategic Partnership with Banma Technologies to Develop New Car

Navigation and Infotainment System; raises US$18 million funding in round led by Alibaba and SAIC to fund technology development

WayRay, a Swiss developer of a holographic augmented reality (“AR”) technology for internet-connected cars, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with Banma Technologies to develop a new AR car navigation and infotainment system. WayRay also announced it has successfully secured its Series B financing round, which come from existing investors and the Alibaba Group.

Over the past 4 years, WayRay has used US$10 million of its own funds as well as Angel and Series A venture capital, to create a patented technology for transparent holographic displays. 

Banma Technologies is an independent startup dedicated to furthering developments of internet-connected cars that's funded by Alibaba Group and China’s largest automaker, SAIC Motor. WayRay will work closely with this consortium to create an advanced AR HMI that integrates augmented reality navigation, driving assistant notifications, a virtual dashboard, and much more. The new system will be built into one of Banma’s 2018 car models, making it the world’s first vehicle in production with a holographic AR head-up display (HUD).

"At the moment, WayRay is the world’s only developer that integrates augmented reality systems into cars. It gives us an advantage over traditional HUDs and provides the opportunity to collaborate with the largest global car brands. In 2017, we aim to release a consumer version of Navion, our AR navigation system, and to sign contracts with major global car manufacturers to implement our ground-breaking infotainment system,” said Vitaly Ponomarev, founder and CEO of WayRay.

“Augmented reality HUDs are the future of car navigation systems. Rather than distracting the driver, AR navigation actually improves safety as the warnings and traffic data are placed right on the windshield. Moreover, with the rise of self-driving cars and enhanced auto control mechanisms, AR systems will enhance entertainment and communication within the car. We believe that WayRay’s AR systems will bring us one step closer to advanced connected cars,” Alex Shi, CEO of Banma, commented on the deal.

Ethan Xie, Senior Investment Director of Alibaba Group, commented: “We believe there is huge potential in the development of leading-edge technology like augmented reality and its application to various industries, like Wayray’s AR navigation system in the auto sector. The potential of augmented reality makes it an exciting and promising area.”

Inside-out Tracking Specialist Hyperverse Secures Funding Round, Showcasing Tech at GDC 2017

Hyperverse has announced it secured a seed round and is headed to GDC (1-3 of March) and Hack Temple (Feb 20 and March 14) to show off its fully immersive VR experiences for the first time to the tech reporters and investors.

Why it’s new and awesome

Hyperverse is a platform that helps to create and distribute a fully immersive virtual reality experience in indoor locations by providing tools for studios, all the hardware required and software for operating a VR park, including an SDK for content companies.

Hyperverse’s technology solution overcomes traditional obstacles of VR, including limitations of space and room geometry, reduces the cost of large-scale VR room installations by around 50-times comparing to competitors, opening the door to many more businesses to offer their visitors truly engaging VR experiences.

The setup includes a mix of the best existing VR hardware available alongside custom-built Hyperverse technology that allows users 6DoF for body movement, gesture tracking and interaction with the virtual environment. The full package is fully tested to ensure hardware compatibility and is ready to go out of the box. The system architecture also allows owners to create game sessions with any number of players online, limited to only how many guests can fit in the location, taking into account the requirements of safety.

The patent-pending tracking system requires just a single camera and the ceiling of the play area. By using this approach, we’ve created a system that virtually has no limits. We can create play areas of virtually any size and shape - imagine a labyrinth that change its configuration depending on the game scenario. Our optical tracking and inertial sensors reduce the delay to less than 5ms and provides player positioning accuracy down to 1cm.

By providing a backpack for players to wear, Hyperverse solution allows for full freedom to walk around a virtual environment while interacting, thereby freeing VR from the wires. To help ensure easy use and management, it’s built using standardised components to allow for easy future upgrade and repairs, if necessary, and includes the latest Nvidia GTX 1070 video card.

Hyperverse provides an SDK that contains all the tools they need to make amazing VR experiences, without needing to spend time ensuring compatibility with different hardware. This approach increases development speed and ensures that theme parks and other location-based entertainment centers that provide Hyperverse experiences to users always have fresh content to offer.

The first game on the platform is a multiplayer experience with shooting mechanics, puzzle solving, exciting telekinetic abilities and a beautiful story about freeing the world from constraints of the space.⁠⁠⁠⁠
