Blockchain technology is set to change the way we do things. It started with the financial industry; you know Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other Blockchain based platforms that are changing the way we store our money, move funds, and make transactions. Moving on to the latest victim of the Blockchain disruption, the Cargo Robot sector. SKYFchain is the first global Blockchain-based B2R (Business-to-Robot) platform that applies to all cargo robotic sectors.
SKYFchain is owned by SKYF, the first ever-heavy industrial freight drone that can take off and land vertically. The SKYF heavy cargo drone has many use cases, but the most common ones are emergency relief distribution, logistics, and agriculture. SKYFchain seeks to create a platform where all the data relating to drone operation can be stored, verified, and shared. The platform, launched with ICO, will be used to finance the cargo robot industry.
The SKYFchain Blockchain has a number of objectives, but most importantly, the platform will be targeting the integration of all critical information for all players in the market. This platform will have distributed records shared on the platform and will be the source of verified data relating to drone operations. Some the drone data that will be available on the SKYFchain platform include drone routes, mission plans, operation license info, pilot data, maintenance history, and drone specs.
The ledger will also be used to verify details such as the route and the permissions to operate the drone before it takes off to ensure safety compliance. Therefore, the SKYFchain platform will also be used to make the drone cargo industry safer, that qualifies as one of the company’s objectives too. When it comes to SKYF drones, SKYFchain reserves the rights for operations and support, verification, and mission planning.
The SKYFchain platform uses the SKYFT token, the platform’s inbuilt Cryptocurrency, for all transactions within the network. The amount of SKYFT tokens is fixed, and all token holders are entitled to 70 percent of the earnings made on the platform. SKYFchain uses a smart contracts system to provide comprehensive information and substantive control over the assets to users i.e. people and institutions.
One of SKYFchain’s most important component is Blockchain. The Blockchain provides an inbuilt smart contract system that provides necessary data and gives the users a reasonable level of control of their investment. The platform wants to create a new airborne cargo drone industry and after that, introduce seaborne and ground-borne cargo robots into the platform. If successful, the SKYFchain platform will eliminate man as the intermediary in drone cargo industry.
SKYFchain looks promising. It will revolutionize the airborne drone cargo industry and open it up for everyone. There are a lot of reasons for investing in this blockchain. For starters, it’s unique. One of a kind. The SKYF drone is already making it big in the industry, and it can only get bigger.

According to emerging news, on 14th March 2017, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee of Finance Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Securities and investments initiated a process of formulating regulations for the Cryptocurrencies and ICO Markets. Official reports confirm that this is the first among a series of hearings that the U.S. is holding to deliberate on policy formulation to regulate, reorient and realign the market that is taking the world by storm from October 2017.
This meeting was a culmination of the summit held in early March 2018. James Sullivan, the Deputy President Department of Commerce and International Trade Administration portfolio was the presenter at the summit. He had called for concerted efforts from all quotas in policy formulation to regulate and streamline the already robust ICO Markets and the cryptocurrencies growing popularity. The sitting aims to formulate a set of laws and regulations dubbed “The ICO White Paper.” The white paper will address the following issues affecting the cryptocurrencies and the ICO Markets:
• Current regulatory frameworks that regulate these ventures
• Economic efficiencies of ICO Markets as a source of capital for startups
• Approaches to protecting investors’ interests in ICO ventures.
Submissions To The Session
The sitting received testimonial submissions from various experts on economic and financial matters. These professionals are advising the session on factors to consider in managing the cryptocurrency and ICOs markets.

The professor of the law pointed out fraud and misrepresentation as the main shortcoming bedeviling the ICO markets. The solution to this problem is disclosure. The professor presented a list of resolutions to curb non-disclosure and align the ICO and Cryptocurrency markets into law-abiding and financially secure investment ventures. According to him, these disclosures have to focus on:
•Promoter’s Location and Contact Information
• Industry Risk Factors
• Problem and Proposed
• Description of Token Technology Solution
• Problem and Proposed Description of Token
• Qualifications of Technical Team
• Promoter’s Location and Contact Information
The professor, further recommends that it should be mandatory for firms offering ICOs to file all the disclosure with the SEC
Mike Lempress testimonial. He is the Chief Legal and Risk officer at Coinbase Inc. His testimonial acknowledged the importance of the cryptocurrencies and ICOs market on the U.S. economy and the world at large. Mike testified that the Federal government has institutions in place that could streamline the errant markets. The testimonial pointed out disharmony among the federal regulatory institutions as the primary challenge following the exercise. According to the affidavit, the U.S. was advised to support this artistic innovation as a new investment tool in the capital markets. Summarily, this testimonial called for the SEC, CFTC, IRS, and FinCEN regulatory bodies to harmonize their approach towards ICOs markets and provide clear regulations.
Peter Van Valkenburg, a director at Coin base, presented a testimonial from a public policy and research on blockchains perspective. This testimonial called for a change of attitude on the policymakers’ part of emerging technologies. According to the findings of his work, the issue at hand has everything to do with the federal regulators applying old laws and assumptions on entirely new technology. The testimonial encouraged the regulators to remodify the understanding of ICO markets and Blockchains to eliminate the confusion in the markets.

Virtual Reality came out a few years ago. Back then, most people didn’t take it seriously, many actually never thought of it as more than just a cool toy for children to play with. But VR technology has morphed into something else, and it’s now making inroads in the Blockchain. It’s a whole new level of content creation, and the demand for 360˚ Virtual Reality content has skyrocketed. ImmVRse wants to fill the gap left by the massive lack of high-quality VR content in the advertising, gaming, viewing markets.
ImmVRse is a Blockchain-driven VR platform where advertisers, viewers, and content creators can share, trade, and distribute VR content using the IMV token. There are several blockchain-based VR platforms at the moment, but none of them can measure up to what ImmVRse is promising to deliver for Virtual Reality Content creators. All the available platforms provide content in 2D/180, and that doesn’t do much to stimulate or encourage growth in the industry. ImmVRse wants to create a whole new ecosystem for VR consumers as well as content creators.
ImmVRse seeks to solve some of the biggest problems associated with VR industry at the moment. For instance, there’s general lack of high-quality content in the Virtual Reality World. Tech companies such as Samsung, HTC, Sony, etc. have gone ahead to create some quality VR devices but these gadgets remain underutilized since there is not enough quality content to match their capabilities. In fact, most of these devices are only restricted to a few gaming platforms.
ImmVRse intends to solve this problem by creating a platform for Virtual Reality content creators to market and trade their handiwork. All transactions will be made via the IMV token, and content creators can collaborate to create good quality content. The platform is decentralized, meaning that brands, advertisers, and creators will all be allowed to share VR content. ImmVRse is the marketplace for the trading of VR content and is also the distribution platform for content creators. There are no geographical or regulatory limitations in the ImmVRse platform, which makes cross-border transactions easier and a lot cheaper.
ImmVRse is a distributed, decentralized VR platform that allows advertisers, brands, and content creators in different parts of the globe to come together and create the best quality VR content. It’s the first of its kind, at the moment; no other VR platform offers these features. This platform is scalable and as such, allows other types of media production such as 3D animation. However, the platform’s primary focus is Virtual Reality/ Augmented Reality /Mixed reality. ImmVRse users will use the blockchain inbuilt Cryptocurrency known as IVR to facilitate transactions.
Two of the most disruptive technologies of the 21st century are Blockchains and Virtual Reality. ImmVRse combines these two technologies to facilitate the creation and distribution high-quality VR media productions and at the same time, creates direct employment of a large number of content creators. ImmVRse platform users really get to enjoy the best of both worlds.

In the 13th G20 Summit held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the G20 has called for further actions to regulate the Cryptocurrencies by July 2018. The world’s most influential Economics and, Financial Institution was expected by some quarters to draft an array of regulations, but they have instead passed over the task to the relevant global institutions.
The G20 has concluded that Cryptocurrencies are assets rather than currencies and they seek to have a concise framework to regulate this new technology in financial markets. But the group is cautious of the process and has asked for a risk assessment into drafting the set of regulations. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Financial Stability Board (FSB)-institutions that assess financial systems worldwide- will present the risks posed by this process of drafting regulatory polices by April 2018.
Pundits explain such a move as an outcome of FSB Chairman’s Mark Corney, who advised the G20 not to impose regulations on Cryptocurrency just yet as they account for less than 1% of the Global GDP. Mr. Mark further explained in his letter to the G20 on the eve of the summit that even if all the Cryptocurrencies prices surged to their maximum potential, they would not, most probably, exceed 1% of Global GDP. This emerging development does not warrant, immediate action, he advised.
The G20 summit asked the Framework Working Group (FWG) to develop various approaches for consideration. The global leaders pointed out that the body should focus on taxes, competition, data and public expenditure aspects of the Cryptocurrencies. The findings would then inform their next agenda for the year in regards to Crypto-Assets. The FWG have to ensure that their results are specific to different countries economic environments.
In addressing the issue that ICO Markets abet money laundering, the IMF is expected to give a detailed report of capital flows across borders. This request shows that the G20 is demonstrating a particular concern to the allegations from many quarters that ICO Markets are used for money laundering activities and tax evasion. The IMF findings and recommendation will form the basis of G20’s policy formulation agenda in their October 2018 summit. The IMF has a deadline of July 2018 to present the findings and recommendations.
The G20 summit also called on the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to present a code of liberalization on capital movements. In collaboration with the IMF, the OECD is expected to show how transparent the capital transfers have been in the wake of ICOs.
Finally, the Sustainable Finance Study Group (SFSG) is expected to give a full report on the options available for all G20 members in regards to Capital Ventures in regards to crypto-assets. It is clear that the G20 is alive to the shortcomings in ICO Markets ventures and seeks to protect private investments, develop capital formations and ensure sustainability of ICO Market ventures.
What To Expect
We expect the regulations development process to start from July 2018 presentation of findings by various bodies. The policy framework for ICO Markets and Cryptocurrencies are likely to be in place latest by next year. This gradual and systematic policy formulation process is attributed to the FSB letter to the G2O which pointed out that Crypto-Assets and ICO Markets do not pause any immediate threat to the Global Economy.
