Rivetz Corp., a company founded in 2013, is about to launch their crowdsale for Rivetz Token (July 25, 2017) – a decentralized, mobile security token that will be used to access the cyber security solutions and other capabilities provided by this first mover.
What is the Greatest Threat to Companies today?
The survival of companies is threatened by various factors today. To name a few: lone wolf attacks, losing competitive advantage, changes in the regulatory environment, high costs associated with unconstrained hiring, lack of innovation, bad management, natural disasters and market instability.
The list certainly doesn’t stop there, but what can be deemed the greatest threat to every single company out there today?
In my opinion, cyber crime – the use of computers or the internet to commit and/or facilitate criminal activities – is the biggest threat faced by every single company today. This is regardless of whether they like to admit it or not.
To get an idea of the magnitude of the problem we’re facing: The global economy lost in excess of $450 billion due to cyber crime in 2016 alone. According to Juniper Research, this figure is estimated to reach in excess of $2 trillion dollars by 2019. Others such as Cybersecurity Ventures places the figure much higher – in excess of $6 trillion by 2021!
If the above is not shocking enough, a survey that was done by specialist insurer, Hiscox, revealed that less than half of the businesses in Germany, the U.K. and U.S. are ready to deal with cyber crime.
Furthermore, many businesses who think they are prepared, are not really prepared. They spent millions of dollars on outdated solutions such as firewalls, passwords and virtual private networks – all cyber security solutions that are no longer effective in the prevention of cyber crime.
All of these solutions assume that “the edge of the network is the network perimeter. This makes it too easy for non-authenticated users to probe and hack systems” (Rivetz White Paper, June 29, 2017, p.4).
What can be done to effectively fight against this growing threat?
You’ve got to love the approach proposed by Rivetz when it comes to data protection and information assurance (IA). Break the dependence on legacy solutions when it comes to cyber security – such as a password as a last line of defense – by expanding “the edge of security to the screen of the device” (Rivetz White Paper, June 29, 2017, p.4).
Accomplish this by utilizing the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) – a vault like hardware platform that is present in each device – to make changes that cannot be altered nor observed by the processor. Use this trusted execution environment, not only to secure and process sensitive data, but also to guarantee information assurance (IA), including transaction assurance.
Build a network in order to improve the data protection capabilities of the devices. The Global Attestation and Identity Network being built by Rivetz, which is fueled by the Rivetz Token (RvT), will constantly monitor, measure and record the state of the device in terms of its integrity and health.
Rivetz plans to fully integrate their model into the Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) blockchains at the end of the day – a move that will decentralize the approach to cyber security and information assurance (IA). They have already prototyped the technological capability required to make it work, but some of the core capabilities still need to be rolled out. This will happen in step with the roll out of the mainstream blockchain roadmap.
Ultimately each Rivetz Token (RvT) will serve as a “key” to unlock the cyber security controls enabled by Rivetz.
Why should you participate in the Rivetz ICO?
The Rivetz ICO or crowdsale kicks off on July 25, 2017. They are hoping to sell a maximum of 70 million RvT tokens (maximum $50,000,000) during the crowdsale – 35% of the total supply of 200 million RvT tokens.
Here are reasons why you should participate:
Early Bird Bonus
Early birds will receive a 20% bonus. Why potentially pay more later when you can get in cheaper now, right?
Massive Market and Growth Potential
Given that for the most part, no provable security exists in terms of the end-point devices being used in the Internet of Things (IoT), Rivetz aims to change the status quo.
If Rivetz succeeds, IoT devices will leave the premises of manufacturers with security in the box so to speak. This means that the market targeted by Rivetz will include all Internet of Things devices, including mobile devices. This is a massive market!
The number of IoT devices is expected to hit the 20 billion mark this year (20 Billion Connected Internet of Things Devices in 2017, IHS Markit Says). This while it is estimated to reach 200 billion devices by 2020 (Intel Infographic) – an expected increase of 900% in about 3 years!
Can you imagine the perks of getting in at the ground floor in terms of this potential revenue growth?
Regulatory Compliance Data Protection Laws
The cyber security and information assurance solutions built by Rivetz should make it easier and more cost-effective than ever for businesses to comply with data protection laws, including compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) and California S.B. 1386.
GDPR compliance will be compulsory from May 25, 2018 and forward. Love it or hate it – all signs are there that data protection laws are here to stay.
Get in during the Rivetz ICO – and chances are that your business might benefit from more than just discounted RvT tokens. If you ask nicely, they might throw in some promotional RvT tokens.
First Mover – Cyber Security Solutions – Blockchain Technology
Rivetz is a “first mover” in terms of cyber security solutions built by utilizing blockchain technologies. This provides them with a competitive advantage to at least some extent, especially considering that they have filed at least one patent to protect their intellectual property.
Experience and Leadership – Blockchain Technologies and Trusted Computing
Rivetz Corp. is a relatively young company (founded in 2013), but the Rivetz team is an established team made up of members who have decades of experience when it comes to blockchain technologies and trusted computing. The team includes among others, Steven and Michael Sprague (featured below).
Non-blockchain capabilities currently offered by Rivetz include “multifactor authentication, embedded authentication, file encryption and secure messaging” (Rivetz White Paper, June 29, 2017, p.5). In addition, Rivetz currently has operational technology in place that is compatible with 500 million+ mobile phones.
Contracted Revenue, Other Revenue Streams and New Markets
The Rivetz team has managed to secure in excess of a million dollars in contracted revenue from the U.S. government. This is a drop in the bucket, but provides a “safety net” and the potential for more down the road.
Other revenue streams will include revenue generated from metered access to token-enabled services and other capabilities (see below) – something that should help to open new markets to serve the future $40bn Internet of Things market.
The Rivetz team is in the process of developing various token-enabled services. They are for one working on a means to provide support for secure micro-payment for these services and capabilities. All of these services will only be accessible via RvT tokens – the proverbial “keys” to start the “engine.”
General Purpose Use Cases
The Rivetz solution will provide general purpose use cases across the spectrum, including but not limited to: assured transaction instructions for e-commerce solutions, multisig wallets, assured instructions for cryptocurrency wallets (online and offline), multi-factor authentication with provable cybersecurity controls and token projection of client private keys and process. Details on this can be seen on pages 16-17 and 25-26 of the Rivetz White Paper.
Rivetz’s strategic relationship with Trustonic, leaders in mobility and security, give access to more than a billion devices that are already in the field so to speak. Furthermore, the Rivetz team is hard at work to establish new strategic relationships. They have initiated discussions with Qualcomm – world leader in 3G and next-generation mobile technologies, Intel and others.
If successful, Rivetz will not only enjoy greater support for their commercial TEE solutions, but get access to even more devices.
Don’t be too surprised when Rivetz becomes the undisputed leader in trusted computing. The Rivetz ICO offers a golden opportunity to get in at the ground floor and share in their potential failures and successes.
The Bowhead Tokensale is not available for US or Canadian citizens or residents.
ICObazaar is an innovative crowdsale participation platform that lets you explore and contribute to any ICO at any stage of the fundraising process.
Crowdsales made simple
ICObazaar was created to make participating in any ICO as easy and painless as possible for people at any level of experience in the emerging industry. Many ICO campaigns present a number of barriers to participation – including complex registration, limited payment methods, and network overloads that cause supporters to lose time, effort, and even money in the attempt to donate to a project. Many potential supporters end up missing out on crowdsales entirely, especially the most sought after ones.
ICObazaar’s mission is to simplify and demystify the process of crypto crowdfunding by removing these barriers for participation in any ICO. They make it easy to contribute to any campaign, offering simple, one-time registration on their platform and providing a multi-currency donation interface (up to 50 different digital currencies) for all campaigns on the platform. For security, ICObazaar stores users’ donated funds in a cold storage that mitigates the risk of hacking or theft.
Perhaps the platform’s most unique and valuable feature is that they guarantee your participation in ICO campaigns at multiple stages of fundraising – ICObazaar users have exclusive access to campaigns both before they publicly begin and after they’re publicly completed. This expanded access to campaigns means that potential supporters no longer have to worry about missing a campaign, or paying high fees just to make sure their donation is included in the fundraising pool. You can either secure your tokens ahead of time, or, if you were late to the game, get another chance to participate before the tokens become tradeable on the market.
A platform for a changing landscape
ICObazaar recognizes that the way crowdsales function is constantly adapting and changing, and they aim to grow and innovate along with them. “Our main goal is to make sure that people who want to participate in crowdsales have a more intuitive and user-friendly option, and we’re continuing to develop with that in mind,” stated ICObazaar Director of Marketing, Olivia Lakely.
At the end of the day, the platform’s efforts help crypto crowdsales be what they are meant to be – decentralized public efforts to make innovative ideas a reality. The company sees the hassle and complexity surrounding participation in crypto crowdsales as an unfortunate, but avoidable aspect of the industry. Lakely added: “We’re aiming to shift the focus in crowdsales onto what actually matters, the value of the projects themselves. Supporting them should be easy and painless, and on our platform it truly is.”

An initiative targeting mainstream consumers with a “user-friendly crypto wallet” and touted powerful features to enhance accessibility, Bitquence today launched a crowdfund backed by an international group of experts.
The aim is to create a bridge between the “past and future of finance” with what are said to be a range of innovative and robust tools, including a universal wallet and so-called ‘one-click’ diversification.
Ongoing for the past several months, the development is explained in terms of enabling users to start with a specific asset allocation, for example big cap coins, privacy coins or fog computing. It provides exposure to a specific sector of the cryptocurrency market. And, from that point on users can then add, remove or rebalance their portfolios.
Since Blockchain technology has become the holy grail of the technology sector and its implementation possibilities have influenced the development of solutions in diverse industries, the company has initiated the process of creating projects to accompany this trend.
The Royal Kingdom Enterprise presents the opportunity to participate in this development through its ICO.
Aligned with the view of the Dubai Government of having its services and documents registered in blockchain up to 2020, the Royal Kingdom Enterprise invites to the opportunity to bridge the potential of the technology blockchain the needs of people and public or private enterprises.
To develop products and services that aggregate value to society in a sustainable way, the Royal Kingdom Enterprise decided to seek funding through crowdfunding, developing its own token (Royal Kingdom coin-RKC), a ERC20 at the top of the blockchain of the Ethereum platform.
The issuance of the RKC token aims at the voluntary participation of network users to promote projects proposed by the company. In this way we invite everyone to know our projects and align themselves with the same goal through the involvement of the ICO of the Royal Kingdom coin.
The total quantity of RKC will be in the limited number of 15 million (15 million) in total (including those available for sale during ICO 2,700,000). Your issuance will be unique and it will not be possible to generate new RKC tokens, because they will be configured on the smart contract. In the medium and long term, the Royal Kingdom coin will show itself as a reflection of the organization’s positive performance, obtaining its own market value, being regarded as a consumable virtual product.
The initial value of each token will be $0.10, and this price will increase proportionately according to the volume of its acquisition by the market. The RKC token can be acquired from the Venture Kingdom platform, you must register and enter balance in bitcoin or ether to be prepared for the opening of the ICO.
Contributing to the ICO of Royal Kingdom coin, through the acquisition of RKC, grants benefits to the coin carriers. Among them we would like to highlight that the Royal Kingdom Enterprise from February 2018 will share with the participants the monthly earnings acquired.
Monthly will be allocated 50% of the company’s profits to purchase the RKC token on the market, and these will be distributed proportionately to the carriers of the RKC according to the amount of coins they possess in their wallets rkc.
ICO participants invest in the success of the Royal Kingdom enterprise projects and can help to disclose the sale of RKC tokens to increase awareness in the general community, enabling the anticipated liquidity of RKC tokens through our reward campaign.
The ICO is a transformative step for the development of the projects of the Royal Kingdom Enterprise, as it makes it possible through the community’s participation to construct ideas and share the results.
To understand the project in full we offer the whitepaper, on the official page of the ICO of the Royal Kingdom coin. Be part of this construction and come with us!

Decentralised and Mobile Cyber-Security Token
Rivetz cyber security token provides proof and assurance of privacy and security at a hardware level. Rivetz integrates trusted computing with blockchain technology to provide comprehensive privacy protection
across multiple devices powered by the RvT token. Rivetz works through the Trusted Execution Environment: a private hardware “vault” on your phone that is completely independent from the operating system. Inside of this vault, everything is isolated – so no apps or software or operating system can see what’s inside. This is where Rivetz works to securely manage your secrets, your passwords, keys, and other private information.

The Rialto.AI Priority Pass is now closed. The hard cap of $10,000,000 was reached. No further transactions will be accepted. In addition, there is going to be no crowdsale.
The hard cap was reached. There is not going to be a crowdsale. Do not respond to any offer that attempts to sell XRL tokens as part of a crowdsale, ICO or token generating event (TGE).
Stay protected – Always get information directly from the official source. In this instance Rialto.ai
This is the last chance to buy XRL tokens at discount from cryptocurrency arbitrage and market maker, RIALTO.AI. Only about $3,500,000 worth of XRL tokens out of a total of $10,000,000 are still available for sale.
RIALTO.AI has recently launched their pre-crowdsale – an event that was not widely publicized. It raised $4,000,000 in less than 3 days. It closed on the June 29th. Good news is that supporters who subscribe at their website now have preferential Priority Pass access from July 1st until July 14th 12:00. It is an opportunity to get in and earn a 10% bonus in the process. However, we expect the XRL tokens to sell out before July the 14th. In fact, similar to the Populous (PPT) coin offering – we expect XRL tokens to sell out before the crowdsale that is supposed to kick off on July 15th at 12:00.
Be sure to read the 28-page RIALTO.AI whitepaper to understand what is on offer here. It is an excellent opportunity to support a noteworthy crypto project with huge potential.
