Crypto Cash Back App StormX Launches Ambitious New Reward Scheme

Crypto Cash Back App StormX Launches Ambitious New Reward Scheme

StormX, the popular cryptocurrency cash back and microtasks earning platform, has just announced a lucrative new reward scheme, that allows users to earn up to $1,000 for each new user they refer to the platform.

It is hoped that the new reward scheme will help grow StormX’s already substantial userbase, helping more people experience the simplicity of earning crypto cash back for shopping online, while boosting awareness of the StormX (STMX) utility token. 

Rewarding Users for Shopping and Sharing

As a cryptocurrency cash back platform, StormX allows users to earn crypto cash back on their online shopping, and currently supports over 500 popular stores — including Walmart, eBay, NewEgg, AliExpress, and more. The cashback amount can vary considerably by store, but currently ranges from as little as one percent, to as high as 87.5% when registered as a Diamond user. 

With StormX’s new rewards promotion, users will earn $1,000 for each Diamond user they refer, whereas each Platinum user will net the user $450, and each Bronze user is worth $40 in rewards. Both the referrer and the referee will receive this reward, paid out in StormX (STMX) tokens — which are tradeable on Binance. Referred users need to maintain their membership status for a minimum of 90 days to qualify for the reward. 

StormX is currently available as a Google Chrome web app, which can be used to quickly activate cash back on any supported store with two clicks. Once activated, the user can then complete their purchase as usual, and will be rewarded with bolts — a special reward point offered only by StormX. When the user wishes, they can then convert their bolts into one of several supported cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and StormX Tokens, which can then be withdrawn to an external wallet.

As previously touched on, StormX users are able to maximize their rewards by upgrading from the standard Purple membership tier, to one of four premium tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond. At the top most membership level (Diamond), StormX users gain a 250% increase in crypto cash back, and receive their payouts in 75% less time. Overall, with these reward boosts, Diamond users can earn over 20% cash back at Nike and AliExpress, as well as up to 14% at Walmart — numbers that can’t be matched anywhere else.

“With the potential to earn up to 5.6% cashback at eBay, 22% from AliExpress, and 24.5% cashback at Agoda, StormX offers incredible value for users and an easy way for everyday shoppers to easily gain exposure to a wide array of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and our native StormX token,” said Simon Yu, CEO and Co-founder of StormX.” 

More Ways to Earn

StormX first introduced its Shop and cryptocurrency Cash Back feature earlier this year, but has already managed to rack up more than two million app downloads and has seen sales double month on month due to rampant user demand.

Now, the platform has more than 350,000 active users — many of which are also earning an additional side income through StormX’s gameified microtasks platform. These microtasks include completing short surveys, watching videos, and playing new games, earning users points (bolts) which can be converted into cryptocurrency rewards through the StormX mobile app — available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store

As per today’s announcement, StormX also plans to unveil a staking rewards programme for STMX token holders in Q4 this year. Once launched, STMX holders will be able to stake their tokens through the StormX app to earn a passive income. StormX is set to unveil more information about the upcoming staking initiative in the coming weeks.

The benefits of Ethereum 2.0 will come sooner rather than later according to Vitalik Buterin

The benefits of Ethereum 2.0 will come sooner rather than later according to Vitalik Buterin

Quick take

1 minute read

  • Vitalik Buterin, has recently answered a number of questions from the community as a part of a “ask me anything“ session on Reddit. 
  • The co-founder highlighted many different topics but specifically said that he expects some significant and noticeable network improvements to come for the project sooner rather than later. 

Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of one of the biggest crypto projects in the industry known as Ethereum has recently answered a number of questions from the community as a part of a “ask me anything“ session on Reddit. The co-founder highlighted many different topics but specifically said that he expects some significant and noticeable network improvements to come for the project sooner rather than later. He further said:

“TLDR: merge happens faster, PoS happens faster, you get your juicy 100k TPS faster.”

Over the years, the network for Ethereum has experienced some significant rounds of high congestion. Three years ago in 2017, the popular CryptoKitties game slowed down the network massively but with the decentralised finance space growing rapidly, the network has been seriously clogged up.

As a result of this, it has led to high fees and longer than average confirmation times.

With Ethereum 2.0 very much just around the corner, there is a significant scaling upgrade solution that is supposedly going to speed up the network rapidly. This will increase the number of transactions per second and it will also move the blockchain to a different consensus algorithm known as a proof of stake. Phase 0 for the upgrade is set to occur on the 1st of December in two weeks!

The co-founder further went on to say that “all of these changes are designed to decrease the time until eth2 becomes useful to people.”

XRP Price Analysis: XRP Continues Correcting

XRP Price Analysis: XRP Continues Correcting

This analysis brought to you by RoboForex.

On Friday, November 27th, XRP has reached stability but is still correcting and trading at $0.5550.

As we can see in the daily chart, after finishing a quick rising wave, XRP/USD price is correcting to the downside. At the moment, the asset is trading close to 61.8% fibo, a breakout of which will indicate further pullback towards 50.0% fibo. The MACD histogram has broken 0 and is still moving to the upside – it may be another signal in favor of a new rising impulse. The upside target of the completion of the correction will be at 0.6800.

In the H4 chart, the cryptocurrency continues correcting to the downside. Right now, it is testing the support level, a breakout of which will result in further decline towards 50.0% fibo. The Stochastic indicator has formed a “Black cross” inside the “overbought area” and is still falling, which is an additional signal in favor of further decline towards 50.0% fibo. After completing the correction, the asset may test and break 61.8% fibo, and then continue trading upwards. The upside target is similar to the daily chart, 0.6800.

Ripple started its rally on November 20th, together with other cryptocurrencies. There are a lot of explanations of why it happened, from investors’ search for alternatives to fiat instruments to a surge in interest in cryptoassets from institutional players. Indeed, all of this really took place and, of course, expansion of the interest was in favor of cryptocurrencies. The entire market is on the rise but since “trees don’t grow sky-high”, active purchases faded to the correction.

Over this period of time, XRP has managed to update its high reached in May 2018. The asset is still moving like 80% below the highs of January 2018, when it was trading at $3.7, but investors are surely positive about further growth.

At the moment, XRP is back to third place in the list of the strongest and most popular cryptoassets.

The Ministry of education and training in Vietnam is getting ready to integrate blockchain technology for issuing diplomas in 2021.

An announcement was made last week on the 18th of November that highlighted that the ministry has teamed up with TomoChain, a Singapore-based start-up, in order to put a national student certification on the proprietary blockchain platform from TomoChain.

As a part of this project, the Vietnam ministry is getting ready to issue all kinds of diplomas granted by its training units and the high school of higher education through this new system. Furthermore, this new system is going to come into effect at the end of the school year next year.

Interestingly, the announcement specifically highlighted the new blockchain-based certification system which has been designed to enable for transparent and immutable verification of the qualifications for all of its students. The deputy minister at the Vietnam Ministry of education, Nguyen Van Phuc has said the following:

“Diploma and certificate management is an issue that needs to be resolved by technology, which is significant for the whole of society and also cost-efficient for the diploma management system in particular, and education in general.”

This is an exciting development and could prove to be successful if integrated prep properly. Could this pave the way for other countries to follow in Vietnam's footsteps?
