A coalition of news organizations and journalists in various parts of the world have banded together to create a cryptocurrency to sustain funding for investigative journalism. Called PressCoin, the digital currency was made to get rid of the advertising revenue model, decentralize funding sources, and upend corporate media monopolies with collaborative content that strengthens civic participation around the world. The Ethereum-based currency will be distributed to the wallets of both readers and journalists based on the level of engagement they are able to create, as measured using the Quintype content management system. Readers will receive PressCoin for generating insights from thoughtful conversation. Compensation levels for readers and journalists will be based on reputation documented and recorded in the blockchain. PressCoin publications will not allow readers to engage in comments or interact with anonymous accounts. Like De Correspondent, PressCoin will allow limited access to read its content, but to read full stories, interact with journalists, or comment on stories, users will have to pay for a subscription or make micropayments for individual stories. After the token sale, people will be able to subscribe or join the PressCoin system using fiat currency, credit cards, or online payment systems

Osmium Investment Coin
Invest in an existing business. Buying an OiCOiN (ERC20-token) you will participate in the global revenue of crystalline Osmium (scarcest precious metal on the planet). Osmium is the scarcest and most dense precious metal on earth. In decades of research a crystallization process has been developed which changes Osmium in a stable non-toxic element. In the future Osmium will be established in the jewellery industry as well as a product for investors. It is 4000 times rarer than gold! No other company has the know how for crystallization. Therefore it is a safeguard that everybody who wants to deal with Osmium will come to our company. This is similar to a global monopoly.

These savings allow service providers to drastically lower consumers’ cost of living by reducing prices for services (such as insurance, communication, utilities or financial services). MaxData’s revolutionary platform effectively saves businesses and consumers billions of dollars a year.
