Crypto Bullion is a 3 year old Crypto 1.0 type; it was created among the first wave of altcoins and has remained in existence to this day. CBX will continue its existence as the higher reward/investment leg of the Quintessence network, the object of this ICO. CBX is to become a sidechain of the Quintessence main blockchain in the sense that it will be possible to convert from one to the other directly from the SPK wallet or the CBX Vault.
CBX brings to the table its long history of fair development, its dedicated dev team, its experience in Crypto technology and its special features such as PoSP and Personal Cloud Vault.
Crypto Bullion is the coin that started it all and CBX will remain as an essential sidechain of the Quintessence network; therefore it is normal we accept CBX as payment for your participation in this program.
Also, putting the big principles aside, we want to create a sustainable market for Quintessence. As it is quite possible that CBX's price will rise substancially through this ICO (with so many CBX removed from selling markets), this will help establish a strong market position for your investment in this ICO, right off the get-go. CBX will remain the short and longterm investment sidechain of Quintessence, so we want it to maintain a high value.
To participate in this ICO, you can simply use other coins to purchase CBX from the CBX Market in Cryptopia or the Yobit CBX market, and you can send your CBX directly from the exchange to your ICO deposit address we have created for your account. Also keep in mind that CBX is a nice coin to keep for the long term; you can install the CBX Vault on your computer from this URL, and save some as an investment for the future.
That being said, it is possible we might add BTC as payment method during the ICO. But as everywhere else, less risk means less reward; BTC will not benefit from any of the bonuses CBX will, and ultimately BTC participation and post-ICO Spark Payout will be based on CBX price in BTC.
To make sure this ICO program progresses without any unwanted steps backwards, no CBX withdrawal from this program will be allowed. The only possible outcome where you will get your CBX back is if the ICO is unsuccessful; in such a situation we will promptly refund all CBX investors with their CBX, starting 1 week after the ICO period is over.
Before you invest in this ICO, make sure you are 100% certain of wanting to be part of this exciting new network.
While the CBX is perfectly suited to be what it is supposed to be, a stable low inflation and high reward investment, we are noticing now some exciting new developments in the crypto currency technology
are taking place with cleaner implementations of DAPPS, Smart Contracts, Smart Devices support and
Sidechains which are opening many new and promising possibilities that are outside CBX's current build.
Does that mean CBX is obsolete and should be phased out? No!!!
CBX will remain as the important higher reward investment sidechain of the Quintessence environment, convertible directly from the Spark wallet through an automated internal exchange network. In simple terms, Spark is the currency and the tool while CBX becomes like gold, government bonds or investment paper from the traditional financial markets.
The close interaction between these two networks, Spark and CBX will create trading options and thus this opens up a whole area of possibilities.
Crypto Bullion has been around for 3 years; so there is quite a bit of material online about it. The main reference is of course the official site, cryptobullion.io. Then we also have our Bitcointalk thread, where you can follow all developments, and history: Bitcointalk CBX thread. The Crypto Bullion also has a forum, which has a nice Guides section and also a few other language threads as well: CBX Forum. There are many other sites discussing CBX, along with a few videos; a quick Google search on the topic will find you a lot more data.
Simple answer: current so-called "Crypto 2.0" networks are not very friendly to new investors or new ideas. Either they have high inflation with unfair and political distribution of the said inflation, they are using wasteful and obsolete PoW hashing algorithms, they are running on flawed networks
with no convenient way to correct a mistake when bugs are found, launched with an unfair initial distribution, even
one popular token has a network that is running on centralized servers (!) - and the list goes on. These features make these tokens downright uninteresting and reduce the chance to new investors to eventually profit from their investment in these tokens. Let's face it: profitability encourages creativity. Their motto was: "create a working 2.0 environment based only on functionality, without any regard to future value. Focus was on network features only."
Problem with this approach is that, the little guy wants to make a profit too. Maybe electricity costs so much in little guy's country that he can't mine Eth; it's almost impossible, without a big amount of work, to stake any Lisk with DPos. In the long run, new high value people with exciting new ideas will not be coming to these Cryptos anymore, as it will not be financially interesting to them: these coins are financially interesting only to the initial investors and their friends. No more new DAPPS, no more new ideas coming in: lack of development will mean reduced value for these networks down the line.
Spark wants to create a functional and practical 2.0 style network, which we label as a 2.1 network as we will have ironed out flaws from previous networks, which will keep its fair initial settings throughout its existence. Spark's motto is "create a multi-blockchain working 2.1 environment based on the traditional cryptocurrency values: security, functionality, a decentralized network with longterm financial equality, open possibilities even to the small participant and fairness to all investors: low inflation, high reward to all."
Any crypto currency has to be fair to all investors, both the initial investors and the ones that will follow, throughout its whole existence! Seems like a simple and legitimate claim, yet no current Crypto 2.0 satisfies us in this regard.
No, the Spark Token (SPK) has nothing to do with the Spark coin from 2014. It appears the blockchain from the Spark Coin from 2014 is no longer supported by a living network.
Creating a new Crypto 2.0 like our projected Spark is not a simple job,
so we need resources. We would like to cover the fees of the Quintessence
coding team, and all further development and bounties with CBX and BTC resulting from
our CBX sales. At current market valuation, we estimate at 250 000 CBX the amount of CBX needed to give Quintessence its initial and self-sustaining momentum. This site is setup so you can send the CBX you would like to invest so you get the desired amount of
Sparks, once the Quintessence network is running and Genesis block has been broadcast.
This ICO is structured to be simple and fair: if this ICO is successful, after all programming and debugging is completed all Sparks of the network will be distributed to the initial ICO investors. No special gifts to the Devs, even Devs have to sign up to this ICO and invest their CBX to get some Sparks. The basis introduction rate is 1 CBX buys 4000 Sparks, but this rate will vary depending on the level of bonus of the day you are investing your CBX on. There will be around 1 billion Sparks in circulation, depending how the ICO goes.
As an example, first day investors will receive a 30% bonus in Sparks, so 1 CBX invested on those days will buy the investor 5200 Sparks instead of the basis 4000 Sparks which they will receive at the time the network will be launched.
In event that this ICO is unfortunately unsuccessful, if we do not gather enough money or CBX to create a sustainable and worthwhile momentum - all CBX sent to this program will be refunded to a CBX refund address (provided by each individual investors), starting 1 week after the end of the ICO.
The CBX you will be sending to this ICO will remain either in escrow, or in a multisig, 3 signature address, with one trustworthy trustee from outside the CBX team.
At anytime during the 4 week ICO period up until the last day, when the financial requirements for development are met, we can/will announce that the ICO is successful and that the ICO will be closed to new investors. From that point on, we will allow the programming team 6 weeks time to create the Spark.Wallet, and do all that is needed to lay the basic foundations of the network; just remember development being what it is, maybe we will need more time, the emphasis being on making sure we prepare the best product we possibly can.
The CBX sent to this ICO program will not be released as payment or incentive for development until the Genesis Block of the Spark network has occured, network runs smoothly and all participants of this crowdfunding have received their fair Sparks amount: this ensures a strong motivation guideline the dev team to create a token which will include all promised features in a timely fashion.
The Sparks wallet and basic network functionality is scheduled to be ready 4-6 weeks after a succesful ICO. Install the Spark wallet, or use the Spark webwallet (also planned), create an address and paste this address in the appropriate field in your Personal Dashboard of this site - tokens will be sent to that address quickly after we receive it from you.
DAPPS are the main reason for all the excitement for the Quintessence cryptocurrency 2.0 network. Some of these are suggestions, while some others are planned as an essential assignment, part of the Spark development team's medium term mission.
- An API interfaceable identity verification tool, to be optionally used with the DAPPS requiring identification - both corporate level and personal level - this one will be created by the Quintessence dev team.
- A Sparks email server, free of any Bulk email because of cost to spammers, using the identity tool, which will automatically seen as non Bulk by other existing Spam verification online tools. This one is also a priority.
- Sparks based charity fund management tool (also taking advantage of the identity tool)
- a Sparks project crowdfunding tool
- A currency lending tool, using trust associated with the identity tool
- A convenient and equitable Music and movies media streaming tools
- Jobs and career website; also running on the Spark identity tool basis - Find your next career with a consensus based database
- Distributed file storage, taking advantage of user unused disk space paid in Sparks - one more way to earn Sparks!
- Spam Free Discussion Forums with entries paid in Sparks
- Real-time stock quotes, and traditional financial market alerts, running on Sparks for very low fees
With the rise of bigger and ever more complex crypto projects, seed funding has become now an essential part of creating and maintaining a viable crypto 2.0 currency. Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) are a new type of crowdfunding that utilizes the block chain cryptocurrency technology which was first introduced by Bitcoin. The objective is to raise capital via crypto currency assets that represent an idea, which are shared and/or traded on exchanges such as Cryptopia. The value of the coins should eventually reflect the idea's worthiness and provide coin owners a chance to profit off the person, group, or company behind the ICO and their ideas.
Frequently, ICOs work by selling premined coins to the public on an exchange before the market is live. The actual details of the sale are up to development teams. They can choose to set a predetermined price for each coin, offer a suggested price, or let the users decide their purchase amount and then distribute coins proportionately. This Quintessence project, being such a large project, is not already in existence thus legitimizing the actual need for an ICO which will give us the means to bring this project to fruitation. As soon as the Spark Tokens network is created and tested people will have the possibility to receive their share, but this will be after the ICO has successfully ended.
To some people, ICOs have been seen as scams recently. The Quintessence dev team wants to correct that bad reputation by providing transparency and expose that we have a real need for contributions as the token does not exist yet! We need the contributions to pay for development. That's why our contact information and development roadmap are available here, and we are open to talk to anybody with a question, concern, or suggestion!
If you, just like us, believe that Quintessence will
climb and gradually take over the crypto currency market and become a major player, you can take part of this ICO to be one of the very first people to receive
Register yourself to this site, send us the CBX you would like to invest; from your Vault, Exchange or Personal Vault. At the time of the Spark tokens official launch, please provide us your Spark address and we will send you the SPK you are entitled to (CBX invested and bonus level of the day you invested the CBX in).
The objective of this ICO is to gather sufficient
financial resources to allow us to create the Quintessence
network so it becomes a major player in the crypto arena. We want to allow ourselves the large amount of resources necessary to achieve this. Since programmers need to be paid with short term usable currency
to meet their daily needs while creating Quintessence, they will need fiat money and/or BTC. Many members of the development team will be fulltime employees, Quintessence is an ambitious idea.
Also, promoting Quintessence will be important at all stages, in the most effective ways available. All this creates a need for fiat money or BTC in the short and medium terms. Gathering sufficient resources will be achieved in two ways:
Primarily through CBX sales in BTC and fiat and the collected CBX themselves will help paying for development related costs. At current market valuation, we estimate at 250 000 CBX the amount of Crypto Bullion currency that will be necessary to allow us to proceed with this project, but it is possible we will need a higher amount. CBX devs will be selling their own currency (to gather development resources in fiat or BTC) only when the right CBX market price is reached. Therefore, this number of 250 000 CBX is not cast in iron; as the ICO campaign progresses it is very likely that CBX price will rise: we will let the ICO run until either we have enough capital value to develop the Quintessence network, or 4 weeks, whichever one comes first. We allow ourselves 4 weeks of ICO campaign to achieve this goal. Also, it is possible we might accept Bitcoin (BTC) as payment during this campaign; in any case, BTC investments will not ever benefit from the same bonuses as the CBX investments will.
Programmers and developers will be paid in BTC, mainly, and some CBX. Whatever CBX sum is received from the ICO will be used to develop the Spark/CBX network in the form of bounties and marketing campaigns, in the long term, and to pay for CBX promotion costs during the ICO. The market will not be inundaded with ICO CBXs at anytime; we want to keep a good and stable value for CBX.
First and foremost, you will be one of the first people to own Spark tokens, possibly at their historical lowest price. Although we prefer to plan for the long term success of this cryptocurrency, it is not unheard of to see new ICO coins' BTC value rising very fast on their first few days of public trading. The Quintessence team will do what it sees as conducive to a greater value for all, without any unethical schemes and without creating speculation bubbles.
Here is the planned timeline of this ICO:
