Gemini Unveils Plans For Credit Card With Crypto Rewards

Gemini, a crypto exchange and custodian, today announced that it will launch the Gemini Credit Card, a credit card with cryptocurrency rewards. This effort has been accelerated by the acquisition of Blockrize, a fintech startup that has been building a credit card with cryptocurrency rewards. In preparation for launch later this year, Gemini has opened the Gemini Credit Card waitlist — providing Gemini customers, and those already on the Blockrize waitlist, with early access.

By combining Gemini’s simple, reliable, and safe platform with Blockrize’s rewards program, card holders will be able to seamlessly earn up to 3 percent back in bitcoin, or other cryptos, on every purchase they make with the Gemini Credit Card.

“The Gemini Credit Card will make it easier for any consumer to invest in bitcoin and other cryptos without changing their existing behavior, ” said Tyler Winklevoss, CEO of Gemini. “Rather than deciding how and when to buy crypto, customers can do so when making their everyday purchases. We’re excited to welcome the Blockrize team to Gemini and work together to continue to mainstream crypto.”

Those who join the waitlist, and the more than 10,000 people already on the Blockrize waitlist, will get early access. The Gemini Credit Card will work like a traditional credit card. It will be available to U.S. residents in every state and will be widely accepted wherever major cards are accepted. Rewards will be automatically deposited into a cardholder’s Gemini account.

For Gemini users or others interested in signing up to the waitlist, please visit: https://gemini.com/credit-card/waitlist. To sign up for a Gemini account visit: https://exchange.gemini.com/register.

This is Gemini’s second acquisition, following its acquisition of Nifty Gateway in November of 2019. Gemini continues to look for companies that align with its values and mission to empower the individual through crypto.

Apple Co-Founder Wozniak Brings WOZX Tokens To 3rd Exchange

EFFORCE, the first platform leveraging the power of blockchain technology to democratize access to energy efficiency projects and financing opportunities, announces today that its WOZX tokens are now listed on the Gate.io exchange. With tokens available on Gate in addition to HBTC and Bithumb Global exchanges in a span of only 20 days, EFFORCE is on a fast trajectory to get its utility tokens out to millions of potential contributors quickly.

Steve Wozniak is co-founder of the company that is striving to transform and disrupt the $250B energy efficiency market. Using the EFFORCE platform, companies can sign up to undertake energy efficiency measures at no cost, allowing them to reallocate their liquidity to more critical tasks. The projects are funded through EFFORCE’s decentralized platform by large and small contributors who purchase WOZX utility tokens and are rewarded through the fractionalization of the transferable energy savings.

The company plans to add more exchanges for its tokens as its first projects become available to the general public on the platform in Q1 2021.

“Energy efficiency projects offer a major opportunity to mitigate climate change and provide a direct reward mechanism, so we are excited to offer more tokens to more people around the world as EFFORCE takes off,” said Jacopo Visetti, Project Lead and Co-Founder at EFFORCE. “Since our first listing, we have moved quickly along our roadmap. We are now pleased to be on a third exchange. Public support for our mission has been massive, reflecting the value of bringing energy efficiency improvement projects to a broad audience.”

With China and Europe making strides in efficiency and with the U.S. ready to rejoin the Paris Agreement and restart beneficial climate change policies, EFFORCE will give everyone the chance to participate in projects that bring about meaningful environmental change.

By using the blockchain and utility tokens, EFFORCE eliminates many of the challenges impeding progress in the energy efficiency space. The platform broadens business access to energy improvements as well as public access to energy efficiency financing. Now, EFFORCE will make it possible for any contributor, not just those with access to large amounts of capital, to participate in these important projects. Contributors will also be able to fund projects across borders without being limited by regulations on domestic or local opportunities.

Energy efficiency projects are an important way to improve the carbon footprint and lower energy consumption without changing people’s habits. As Steve Wozniak has said, “We can save the environment simply by making more energy improvements.” Today’s market for energy efficiency projects is very large, but the potential is even greater. To achieve the International Energy Agency’s Efficient World Scenario, the sector still must double the size of investments to $580 billion by 2025.

EFFORCE is led by a team of veteran executives who have been successfully involved with the energy sector for more than a decade. Visetti previously founded Milan-based AitherCO2, with annual revenues of $240 million and no outside investment funding. EFFORCE is only the second company Wozniak has co-founded, the first being Apple 45 years ago. He was attracted to EFFORCE for its unique approach to democratizing energy efficiency.

One of the most promising innovations in regards to energy has to be the cryptocurrency approach. Many people have already begun to see the potential of this new technology holds for the future of renewable energy efficiency. Energy efficiency experts have been using this method of collecting and organizing information in order to make it possible for people to benefit more from their energy use. The main idea is that there are too many wires and parts in a typical electrical system that can lead to lost efficiency, expensive repairs, and even human error. By using the blockchain approach, an entire chain is cut off at the point of use so that the flow of data is guaranteed and constant. With the increased efficiency, this method offers, it may just be the answer to a very important energy question.

Unlike traditional networks, the blockchain approach doesn’t allow data to be lost because of a broken link. Also, this form of the network doesn’t suffer from communication failure between nodes like other networks do because every node is connected to every other node in the network. This form of energy efficiency makes it easier for any engineer or scientist to track and monitor every single energy transaction going on throughout a building or network of buildings. Even the smallest changes in the amount of electricity being used can result in huge savings for businesses and consumers alike.

Not only does this form of energy efficiency to help cut back on energy costs, it also saves a lot of time and money in the long run. Every time there is a loss in energy efficiency, it takes a bit of time for the system to learn from its mistake and be able to work efficiently the next time around. However, by continuously monitoring each transaction, the block chain learns from these mistakes and adjusts the next time around, getting the job done much faster than it would without the lessons learned the last time around. All in all, the blockchain approach to energy efficiency not only helps cut down on energy costs and the amount of damage to the environment; it also saves time and money, which benefits us all.

“P2PB2B is delighted to support AEVOLVE and its AVEX token on our exchange. We hope that our cooperation with AEVOLVE would be fruitful and that AVEX listing on our exchange would help propel AVEX to where it belongs,” said the representative of P2PB2B.io exchange.

“AEVOOLVE works globally within a vast network of medical professionals, patients, and investors who help drive innovation that is essential to the creation of new medical solutions,” said Mark Chester, COO of AEVOLVE.  “The AVEX token allows members of the crypto community greater exposure into the biotech and pharmaceutical industries and helps medical innovations quickly reach market availability.”

The AVEX Token gives the crypto-community exposure into the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical and biotech industry as the medium of exchange on a multi-faceted platform, bringing patients, re-search organizations and medical professionals together with the entertainment industry.

Patients and their families will be able to learn of new life-enhancing medical innovations and obtain an exclusive reservation as one of the first people to access these treatments and cures, the moment they become available. One exciting feature about these reservations is that they are digital blockchain assets that can be sold and transferred on a marketplace, providing liquidity at the click of a button.

AEVOLVE has also jumped into the ring with EntroBox to raise awareness through major fundraising events, including an upcoming Mega Boxing event in 2021 staring boxing legends and rising stars. These events will be supported by the world’s leading social influencers and will be the first crypto-enabled pay-per-view platform using the AVEX Token.  These events will spotlight the medical innovation needs in the marketplace while simultaneously boosting the access and trading of the AVEX token on participating cryptocurrency exchanges.

This heavily weighted social influencer event will open with various performances and major entertainment from mega influencers, including an impressionably rousing rendition of our national an-them, prior to the main boxing event. ENTROBOX is co-founded by its CEO, Ronald (“The American Dream”) Johnson, the current GBO Heavy Weight Champion. Johnson said, “Our partnership with AEVOLVE brings a new era into mega entertainment events where everyone can be a part of impacting lives with cutting-edge medical breakthroughs, while having an experience of a lifetime. By letting the world access our events with crypto, this will open parts of the world who do not use credit cards to watch and enjoy their favorite boxers, stars and influencers in real time!”

According to AEVOLVE founder, Rogelio Santos, “Our mission is to deliver the world’s most powerful and impactful medical treatments and solutions over the next decade. We will do this by removing the financial obstacles that have hindered important medical technologies from getting to the people that truly need them and by empowering the scientists and medical innovators behind these solutions with an unprecedented voice to rival the marketing machine of the pharma giants.”
