Strategy Through Segmentation: Electroneum Extends Move Into Online Gaming Industry With Host Havoc Collaboration

Strategy Through Segmentation: Electroneum Extends Move Into Online Gaming Industry With Host Havoc Collaboration

To ensure the growth and success of any novel invention, it is critical to find and serve your core audience. These are the people who “get it.” They are the individuals who believe in the vision presented by the founders and loudly champion its purpose and viability, the early adopters and passionate advocates. Twas the case for the PC, the internet, and most recently; Bitcoin. Many companies have failed to succeed in achieving their vision simply because they do not capture and deliver to their core audience by delivering the right message to the right people at the right time. But where many have failed, Electroneum stands to succeed by doubling down on their expansion into the online gaming industry.

Host Havoc is a top-five global gaming server provider. Last week Electroneum and Host Havoc broke news of a freshly inked partnership amongst the two companies. The new alliance allows over four million registered Electroneum (ETN) users to rent online gaming servers from Host Havoc. This includes access to 30 games including Minecraft, Ark: Survival Evolved, Arma3, Counter-Strike: Go, DayZ and Hytale. Servers are hosted from 11 globally-distributed locations across the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Australia. 

For Host Havoc, this opens the doors to a new audience segment within the passionate crypto community. Host Havoc CEO and Founder, Clay Berndt, recently went on record to discuss his company’s excitement in welcoming Electroneum as an additional form of payment and offer their users the opportunity to use their ETN to rent some of the best servers in the industry:

"We look forward to working with Electroneum, a crypto project that has millions of users and one whose goal for financial inclusion aimed at the unbanked and developing countries we strongly support [and] we believe we can both benefit from our partnership”

Accepting ETN as a payment method provides yet another avenue for Electroneum to penetrate the multi-billion dollar global online gaming sector; an integral market segment that ETN is leveraging to gain meaningful traction towards its adoption roadmap. It was also very recently that online strategy game, Spinterlands, started accepting Electroneum payments as well. Electroneum CEO, Richard Ells, expressed his excitement with the news of the new partnerships in this space:

"Electroneum is experiencing true adoption, and we are very thrilled to see ETN as a payment method in the video gaming industry, such as with Splinterlands and now Host Havoc. We should see more of these integrations shortly.”

According to their website, Host Havoc was founded in 2013 in Ottawa, Canada, by highly experienced tech experts who are also passionate gamers.

"We love to play the games that we host and have real experience operating these servers for mere fun," they add. "That translates to levels of understanding and passion that we guarantee you won't find anywhere else."

Their game-server hosting lineup includes the most popular hosting platforms. All services feature custom-tailored tools and features that they actively maintain for updates to both the game and third-party content. 

Server slots on Host Havoc start as low as $0.30, and monthly rentals at $5. They have 24/7 technical support, and utilize state-of-the-art host facilities and networks committed to 99.9% uptime and quality of service; all with their fast NVMe SSD and 4.5 GHz E-Series XEON processor-powered servers. Service includes a three-day money-back guarantee, instant server setup, complete control of your server, daily backups, enterprise-class infrastructure, easy configuration, free DDoS protection, and the ability to switch games at any time. They also include full FTP access and advanced settings and allow members to join their affiliate program where participants can earn a 12% recurring commission.

Best Game Hosting posted a 2020 review ranking of gaming servers providers. Host Havoc ranks second with a 4.6-star rating. 

"Looking at the different features, we found their control panel to be very handy with automatic updates, one-click mods and plugins installed, a gorgeous mod GUI and auto-updating mods… customer support is a stand-out feature… overall, Host Havoc has a great service, which we highly recommend." -Best Game Hosting

The focus around online gaming is growing for the three-year-old Electroneum. It has become quite clear that online gamers are seen as a crucial market segment to capture for Electroneum and the crypto industry as a whole in the years ahead. CEO of Splinterlands, Jesse Reich, recently discussed the parody and synergy present in the two communities, and the easy win for crypto adoption by means of online game integration. With a bold goal to help build awareness and enable the unbanked with revolutionary new opportunities to rise out of poverty, the crypto community will certainly watch closely to see if this move will help to onboard online gamers to use ETN and help achieve their bigger mission.

Blockchain implementation is only possible through B2B partnerships

Blockchain implementation is only possible through B2B partnerships

Blockchain is one of the most vital technologies in the 21st century and is one thing that most countries have in common. Its emergence has led many experts to believe that it is possible for technology to change the world in a few decades, just as the internet came and changed the world. Although it is still at its early development stages, many companies and countries are employing its use for their processes. The blockchain application seems limitless, as it is used in many processes by varying individuals and institutions. Although the most obvious use of blockchain is in the financial sector - international payments, complex financial products, remittances, and cryptocurrency, it is also used to resolve issues and create new opportunities in defense, supply chain, healthcare, government voting, luxury goods, and management. 

Blockchain advantages for B2B

The role that blockchain plays worldwide is often downplayed. While this statement is true for both companies and users, the technology is a very effective tool in providing business solutions. In addition to the many advantages that come with blockchain, the ones that stand out are security, transparency, accountability, and profitability of B2B ventures.

Unlike B2B, B2C is pretty hard because the customer needs to be educated about the product and the value they may receive from the blockchain. While a business partner would either already know or would be more understanding towards it. A good example is blockchain companies partnering with banks to implement their technology. Online casinos are not left out. They are adopting this technology through their partners as they continue to churn out blockchain-based games. For example, when people find the best Playtech bonuses, it's usually provided through BTC or ETH. Why? Because the games are usually designed to do so.

Blockchain acts as a bank for companies that are involved in the production of goods and services for different companies. Companies use it to send and receive money, accept deposits, sign contracts, and a whole lot more. Many people often either confuse block change to mean just cryptocurrencies or online banks. However, this is not the case. Blockchain is broader than just cryptos and involves many processes that are used differently. The reason why blockchain cannot be considered as an online bank is that even online banks are still powered by central authorities, while blockchain is decentralized.

CTO of ripple tells all on how much XRP owns

CTO of ripple tells all on how much XRP owns

Quick Take

1 minute read

  • David Schwartz, the chief technical officer of the San Francisco-based blockchain company ripple has recently explained how much XRP he owns.
  • Technically, because he owns such a mass sum, it makes him a whale in crypto terms.

David Schwartz, the chief technical officer of the San Francisco-based blockchain company ripple has recently explained how much XRP he owns.

Technically, because he owns such a mass sum, it makes him a whale in crypto terms.

As one of the original developers and designers of the token and XRP Ledger, David revealed that he would leave his job when the price of the token reaches $1.

David did not disclose the exact amount of the token that he owns however, he did say that it was less than 10 million and more than 1 million. 

As a result of his public tweet explaining his portfolio for the token, the community reacted and questioned why he had very little exposure to the token while other founders of the ledger such as Chris Larsen have billions of the token in their possession.

The token for the San Francisco company has been performing quite mildly over the course of this year. Not much has happened in 2020 for the token but who knows what the future will hold. Many believe that 2021 will be the year for XRP but only time will tell.

Earlier this year, David gave even more details on his cryptocurrency portfolio saying that he regretted dumping such huge amounts of bitcoin and ethereum for cheap at the time. However, he did explain that he did this as a part of a “derisking plan“ that he had contact with his wife.

Tyler Winklevoss on BTC: FOMO yet to kick in

Tyler Winklevoss on BTC: FOMO yet to kick in

Quick take

1 minute read

  • One of the brothers of the well-known Winklevoss twins, Tyler Winklevoss has recently said that the spike in bitcoins price that brought it to $18,000 is not yet a FOMO price run. 
  • Speaking in a tweet, Tyler said that the spike in the bitcoins price was due to the steady hands in the overall crypto industry.

One of the brothers of the well-known Winklevoss twins, Tyler Winklevoss has recently said that the spike in bitcoins price that brought it to $18,000 is not yet a FOMO price run. Speaking in a tweet, Tyler said that the spike in the bitcoins price was due to the steady hands in the overall crypto industry. He added that this means many investors are on the sidelines and have yet to get fully involved.

For those that don’t know, FOMO (fear of missing out) is a term used in investments such as cryptocurrency to describe panic buying. When the price of bitcoin starts to rise, many people panic buying due to a fear of missing out.

Specifically, Tyler highlights the stable and steady search term popularity on Google for bitcoin indicating that a spike in Google searches for the leading crypto coin would be a big sign of FOMO kicking in but this has yet to happen.

If you take a look at the Google searches for bitcoin over the past year, it will indicate that the highest it has ever reached was in May this year when the coin hit a $10,000 for the second time in 2020. Since May, there have been numerous prices with fluctuations bringing the price down and up consistently.

Over the course of this year alone, bitcoin has been able to surpass numerous price key resistance levels. Many people believe that the coin is well on its way to $20,000 by the end of the year. Furthermore, institutional investment has been on the rise massively this year with bitcoin being on many corporate balance sheets. This has helped adoption as more people are getting involved with the industry on a daily basis.

Ideaology's IEO Ushers the Launch of Blockchain Platform for Innovators

Ideaology's IEO Ushers the Launch of Blockchain Platform for Innovators

DUBAI, UAE - Ideaology is proud to announce its IDEA token pre-sale on December 1, 2020. The pre-sale event is an initial exchange offering (IEO) on P2PB2B exchange. Users will have a chance to purchase IDEA tokens with a 22% discount before the IDEA token public sale.

Ideaology aims to be the “Biggest Blockchain Ecosystem in 2021 and beyond''. Along with the pre-sale launch, Ideaology’s Active IDEA platform will have its beta launch on December 1, 2020 as well. The very existence of Ideaology is a testament to how the model it’s promoting works. With its upcoming IEO and subsequent launch on crypto exchanges, Ideaology’s Active IDEA aims to become the first blockchain-powered platform to pave the way for users to collaborate on promising blockchain projects while investing in these ventures as well. 

“Freelancers don’t necessarily work on online freelance platforms, and clients or companies don’t necessarily look for talents on those websites. Many of them are running their independent business from their websites or agencies, and looking for clients via advertisements, email marketing, leads generation, and other techniques. This is why we need to ask the question: why would a freelancer choose a website like Upwork, Fiverr, or Freelancer to sell his services when they can be part of a platform where they can offer their expertise and services on a platform specifically created for their exposure and convenience?” ,said Khaled Alkalbani, Founder and CEO at Ideaology. 

Whether you are an investor looking for the right project to pour your resources on, a business developer that needs funding to start his empire, or a digital nomad looking for a platform where you can provide meaningful services and earn, Active IDEA strives to be the go-to platform for all online professionals. 

Within the Active IDEA platform, members can collaborate as they invest and find projects that they have passion for. Members of the Ideaology community will be enabled to launch a startup through crowdfunding, but at the same time, will also have the opportunity to work with startups.The Ideaology team calls this whole process “collabvesting” - where Active IDEA users can invest in startups while also giving startups and freelancers to collaborate on projects.

“We believe that our IEO launch with P2PB2B enables Ideaology supporters and P2PB2B users to have a smooth and convenient experience in participating in our pre-sale for the IDEA token. We trust that P2PB2B will also offer a great IDEA token pre-sale experience for everyone interested to purchase IDEA tokens at an early stage.”, said Amar Kovacevic, Co-Founder and CTO at Ideaology.

By establishing a platform where online professionals can start collabvesting, and jumpstarting it with a pre-sale of their IDEA token, Ideaology just became one of the most promising blockchain companies in 2021 and beyond.
