Asia Pacific Conservative Union Launches Blockchain Ecosystem to Fight Authoritarianism
Two executives from the Asia Pacific Conservative Union (APCU) have launched the Liberty Ecosystem, a blockchain-based network designed to fight authoritarianism, a press release shared with Cointelegraph reveals on March 2. The co-founders of the project are APCU chairman, Jikido "Jay" Aeba, and CEO and co-founder of the organization, Yasu Kikuta. The press release describes the initiative as a “decentralized federation of local advocacy and economic development organizations seeking to combat the rise of authoritarianism in the Asia-Pacific region and around the world.” Per the announcement, regimes like China invest in foreign infrastructure projects in a bid to assert control over the political sovereignty of other countries. Such use of economic power to exert political control has reportedly started to result in the exportation of the authoritarian government model to other countries such as Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Japan. The press release explains that the blockchain-powered project involves the use of so-called “Liberty Tokens” to create a shared community and financial infrastructure meant to empower local organizations fighting authoritarianism. The intiiave has also partnered with token economy ecosystem Wowoo. As Cointelegraph reported in November last year, while Thailand has been under the control of a military dictatorship since May 2014 — with internet censorship and a dismantled senate — the country has shown it’s welcoming blockchain and crypto innovation on both the public and private scale. It has been long suggested that human rights activism is one of Bitcoin’s greatest use cases. Still, United States whistleblower Edward Snowden voiced concerns over Bitcoin’s long-term prospects in an interview in March last year, saying the cryptocurrency’s public blockchain made it susceptible to abuse.
Expanse : Rising Of A New Crypto Era ( 1st Stable fork of Ethereum )
My Introduction : Hello everyone , My name is Tahmidur Rahman Khan ( Niloy ). I am from Bangladesh. I am 29 years old and married. I do business and i own a computer store. How i came in touch with cryptocurrency : From the childhood i am in love with new inventions and technologies that are changing our day to day life and world very quickly. So i got my 1st desktop computer at the age of 8. I came in touch with cryptocurrency named “ Bitcoin ” at 2010. One day i saw this name in google and then i researched it quite well. I found a miner named “ GUI miner ”. I downloaded that software and installed it on my pc. In that time which gpu i was using i cant recall properly but it was an amd gpu. I pressed start and the miner started mining bitcoin using my gpu. I was very happy on that moment. When i was mining bitcoin it was $0.0025 per coin. I started my mining journey at January and ended it in November. In that time i had about 17.5 bitcoins in my wallet. In December i sold my 17.5 bitcoins at $35 in an exchanger. Now its almost , 17.5*11300 = $197750. Then i left this crypto market and thought that mining bitcoin is a scam concept and bitcoin is using my cpu and gpu for their betterment and i am gaining nothing. I came back again in 2017 ( fully charged ) : Almost after 7 years later i visited coinmarketcap and saw that bitcoin is at $450 per coin. I saw many other coins that i never saw before. In April i ordered 6 Asus Rx 580 8GB cards to mine ethereum but i was unable to get even one. I was very surprised that why the hell i am not getting even one card by myself. Then i searched google and i reached out to my connections in China , Malaysia & Hongkong but in everywhere same story that they were unable to find a single card. So , the whole world including me was facing a global gpu stockout. I got my gpu’s in August and started mining ethereum. After few days a saw that i am earning a small amount of money and network hashrate is increasing like crazy. In April i saw that with 6 Asus Rx 580 8GB cards i can easily get $1150 per month without electricity bill but in August i saw that i am earning $200-$250 per month without electricity bill. So i quit ethereum mining and then i saw a game changing ethereum fork named “ Expanse ”. Expanse ( The Game Changer Crypto) : I started to mine expanse in late August. I saw that the price was about $3 per coin , circulation is low , total coin supply is also low so its a huge potential coin that will rock in the future without no doubt. I was getting about 6–8 coins per day with my cards and i was happy. Suddenly i sold my rig in a good price and bought a lot of expanse from bittrex. Now i know that , mining is like a passion but trading is like a habit that will change your day to day life. You cant eat, sleep, go out or have a normal life if you are a trader because each and every moment the market is going up and down and you get the chances to buy or either sell your coins with profit. Expanse is not just a coin. Expanse has various products and currently they are working with many companies. So what is Expanse Actually : Expanse was created as the first stable fork of Ethereum by one of the earliest blockchain developers and cryptocurrency entrepreneurs out there, Christopher Franko. Co-founder James Clayton is also the founder of the Cryptocurrency Collectors Club, (CCC), which is the largest and most popular Cryptocurrency group on Facebook. Dan Conway, another blockchain expert with extensive experience, soon joined the team as the third founder, bringing a great deal of talent, balance, and expertise to the project. Expanse was built as a community-based project without an ICO, (Initial Coin Offering), and is blockchain agnostic. The idea is to use cutting-edge blockchain technology to build anything the community and team can imagine — using a Decentralized Autonomous Organization, (DAO), with a self-funded design to keep it truly decentralized. This way, the Expanse community can evolve and grow while rewarding holders, partners, and investors. Expanse Products : Tokenlab : So what is tokenlab ? Tokenlab is an integrated system to create Tokens and assets on the Expanse.tech Blockchain. It includes the ability to start ICOs with smart contracts designed with time-locked distributions built in to protect investors from funds being dumped on the market. 2. EXR (EXPANSE REWARDS) : So what is expanse rewards ? Expanse Rewards, (EXR), formally known as the Expanse Rewards dApp, is a reward system that enables Expanse holders to earn back Expanse each month. The process starts by purchasing a smart contract using expanse. 3. BIMS (borderless identity management system) : Borderless identity management system is the world’s best governance platform built for a hyper-connected planet. They are currently working in these sectors : ( a ) BORDERLESS CITIZENSHIP ID : A cryptographically secure identification system that serves as the foundation for everyone of the Borderless Technology Services. ( b ) BORDERLESS MARRIAGE : A tolerant marriage registry that allows any two consenting citizens the ability to confirm their marriage’s existence on the blockchain. ( c ) BORDERLESS WEB OF TRUST: In order for Borderless citizens to transact between each other with confidence, a decentralized web of trust system is provided and its use encouraged. ( d ) BORDERLESS NATION CREATION : No matter if you are an established nation with millions of citizens or a private nation with just two citizens, Borderless can help you cut service cost so you can better serve your citizens. ( e ) BORDERLESS PUBLIC NOTARY : A registry that stores cryptographic hashes for virtual documents so that you can mathematically prove the existence of said document on the Expanse blockchain. ( f ) BORDERLESS ASSET REGISTRY : A registry that gives Borderless citizens the opporunity to add liquidity to their property by registerting it as an asset on the Expanse blockchain. 4. Exp Dao : Launched in 2015, Expanse is the first stable alternative public chain of Ethereum. Now with the coding of the DAO complete and set for alpha testing in December, its revolutionary vision of becoming an organization completely free of contractual obligations to outsiders or institutions is about to become a reality. Among the ambitious developments to date are the creation of VoteLock™, a voting dApp slated for use with the DAO and beyond, and Tokenlab™, a platform that provides a suite of managed services designed for ICOs. Expanse now has development teams across the globe and has brought in carefully selected managers with extensive backgrounds in technology, marketing and business development to round out the leadership team. “DAOs have been described as wildly ambitious and radical because they essentially automate management with code,” said Christopher Franko, Expanse co-founder and Borderless Corp. CEO. “The beauty lies in the fact that anyone who owns Expanse DAO tokens can pitch their project, then token-holders use VoteLock to determine which projects the DAO funds. The project rules are locked into smart contracts, which are essentially immutable and incorruptible. The community receives rewards if those projects make a return.” This approach to the Expanse DAO makes it one of the most visionary community blockchain projects to date. Offering immutability and only changing code with a true consensus, the Expanse DAO follows the code-is-law mantra. 5. Borderless Charity : The Borderless Charity is registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Contributions to the Borderless Charity are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

JAXX https://jaxx.io/ You can contact expanse dev and the whole team directly by : Expanse Discord We recently launched Expanse Discord, Discord is a communication system much like Slack, but Discord has much better security and is safer for users, so due to greater security we have switched from Slack to Discord for the community. To speak directly with the Expanse team or others in the Expanse community we suggest signing up for Discord, thank you. https://Discord.me/expanse Finally , I want to say that expanse is a great coin and their team is really good at what they are doing. They are doing a lot of great stuff , a lot of miners and investors are backing expanse really good and specially Frank and James are the boss of expanse team so they are doing their best. Now is a great time to buy expanse because its value is low , circulation is low and total coin supply is low. So , Now is the time to buy expanse.
