YNG token sale over, what now?

A few months ago, I was looking for a decent get-paid-to-walk app and happened upon Young Step / Young Platform.


In short, the Step app is the one that pays you to walk, learn things about crypto and participate in challenges, while the Platform app is the actual exchange to which you can transfer the YOUNG token and redeem it for euros, dollars, bitcoin, eth and so on.


The YNG (ERC-20) token was exclusively available within the Young ecosystem and couldn’t really do anything with it, so I simply sold it as soon as I could and got Litecoin instead.


However, a few weeks ago, the platform announced the public sale of the YNG token ahead of the public listing. The price was (and always has been) fixed at €0.24 per token, and Young said they sold 6.4 million tokens.


On June 1st, 2022 at 12 PM CET, YNG will ‘go public’ and the market price will vary based on demand and offer. And that leaves me with a question: what next?


The crypto market isn’t exactly doing well at the minute, and €0.24 per token sounds like a lot to be frank.


But it’s too late now, I can’t really do anything but wait. Same as always. It’s a recurring trend with crypto, isn’t it?

Heads up: Centurion Invest’s token’s public sale is live

Centurion Invest is a crypto exchange that combines a traditional wallet with the features of an exchange, including ETFs, stock trading and of course crypto trading.


After signing in (there’s a 1,000 CIX bonus), you can bake your own cake or you can subscribe to one of the pre-cooked programmes, depending on how much funds you can, or want to, allocate: baby shark, shark and whale.


They also have a Visa card that gives you the various perks you expect in the crypto world, including loyalty programmes and cashback. I have been using the platform for a few days now, after discovering it at the Tomorrow Conference in Belgrade a little over a week ago, but I’ve yet to order the card.


I’ve had the opportunity to talk to the founder at the conference and the project is intriguing. Plus, I’ve got around 50+ crypto-related apps on my phone. So one more can’t hurt.


CIX is the platform’s native token (ERC-20) and it is currently worth around $0.02 with a total supply of 2,400,000,000. The public sale goes live tomorrow, May 25th.

Everyone is calling for crypto regulation in the European Union, but who’s the regulator?

The European Union is not a country. It isn’t a state, it isn’t a geopolitical entity. It is a forum, a virtual table around which 27 sovereign countries sit and discuss. These countries have vastly different interests and priorities and this is by far and away the biggest reason why the EU is in a bad shape.


These 27 countries, with different degrees of strength, are satellites of the United States.


In short, European Union countries just do what the United States allows them to do. Nothing more, nothing less. This becomes glaringly obvious when representatives of the Union are regularly snubbed during international meetings.


The media love to say it has to do with manners but that’s just red herring. The EU isn’t a company and the chairman isn’t a CEO. This is the reason why high-ranking EU officials consistently bash crypto without actually doing anything about it.


That’s because, for the most part, they can’t.


The EU is desperate to save the EURO, which is beginning to look like a failed project, but everytime they propose a new law and pass a new bill, the crypto market goes: “oh no! anyway”, and just carries on.


Within the boundaries of the European Union, you have countries that are at the forefront when it comes to crypto like Slovenia and Portugal, and you also have countries that simply ignore it, like Italy, mostly because they’ve no idea what it is or how it works.


Crypto won’t exactly self-regulate, but because of the way it works, it will keep on playing by its own rules, gradually (and slowly) bending regulators around it.


I am, whether I like it or not, a citizen of the European Union, even though I no longer live in an EU country. There are things about this entity that I quite like – freedom of movement (and trade) is certainly one of those – and others I don’t really like.


But that’s the beauty of crypto. At the end of the day, my opinion doesn’t matter. It doesn’t make a difference. And that’s true for me, you, and at a fundamental level, even for the president of European Commission.

What if Bitcoin actually benefitted from Terra’s disaster? (in the long run)

Terra’s crash has been dubbed “the Lehman Brothers of Crypto”, a fitting analogy considering that we’re talking about a project that went $45 billion from zero in a matter of hours.


Regulators, banks, governments and crypto-hating billionaires will love this. A lot of “I told you so” moments are coming.


On top of that, it is now going to be very hard for people to trust stablecoins again, especially ‘algorithmic’ ones. Which brings me on to the question in the headline, what if Bitcoin actually benefitted from this, in the long run?


Self-proclaimed Bitcoin maximalists have historically always shown little to no interest in other cryptos.


They, or perhaps I should ‘we’ firmly believe Bitcoin is King and Queen and always will be. And they’re used to flactuations and trouble. They’ve seen Bitcoin go to $20,000 before crashing to $3,000 and didn’t care. They’ve seen it go to nearly $70,000 before falling back to $27,000 and still didn’t get their knickers in a twist.


In the short term, this is a 360° catastrophe. There’s no doubt about that. Look around you and you’ll see nothing but ruins. But if you zoom out, Bitcoin is proving to me surprisingly predictable with its unpredictability. It always goes up, it always goes down.


And let’s not forget, Terra’s crash happened because it was a flawed project and a one-man-show. Bitcoin is not like that. The price goes up and down all the time for a million reasons but the network itself has never shown any significant weakness.


I still own around 105 UST, worth around $5 at the time of writing. It sucks, but I know a lot of people lost a lot of money so I’m not gonna complain.


I also know that around 93% of my portfolio is Bitcoin. And I’m beginning to think that it’d make even more sense if I ramped that up to 95% or 96%.

How do you keep yourself informed about crypto?

When newcomers ask about crypto and NFTs, they’re often told that these things are “based on blockchain technology”. Legacy media outlets always use this expression all the time and I believe it may be because they’ve no idea what they’re talking about.


And anyway this is, in my opinion, a dumb explanation because the next question would inevitabily be: “cool! So what the hell is blockchain technology?”


Understanding crypto takes time, a commodity that most people are running out of, and it is very difficult to create a one-size-fits-all package to explain everything to everyone in one go.


During my time at the Tomorrow Conference in Belgrade last weekend, I happened upon a Slovenian startup that’s trying to do exactly that. It’s called Cryptounity.


The whole idea, the whole project, is based on the statistical knowledge that only 2% of the world use crypto, which leaves us with 98% with no idea what it is or how to use it.


They want to create a hub where you can find enough info to get a basic understanding of everything crypto from how an exchange work to NFT marketplaces.


It’s an ambitious goal but they’ve structured it right and designed it to make sure you start simple and learn the basics right away, especially when it comes to crucial things like cybersecurity.


As you’d expect, the platform also has its native token called CUT (on BSC), with a total supply of 1,000,000,000.


I haven’t bought any yet but I’m considering it. Partly because I believe in the project, but chiefly because there’s nothing else to do right now, I can’t certainly sell crypto now, can I?

Can blockchain technology be used to manage sensitive data?

I occasionally freelance for a company that specialises in communications and social media and a few months ago, they asked me to transcript and translate three videos about a topic I knew nothing about: data management in the music industry.


The job was a bit boring but I learnt a lot, and I learnt that managing data, especially when it comes to intellectual property, is a complicated mess. And I immediately thought to myself, “this is what blockchain technology is designed for, actually”.


A few months later, at a crypto and NFT conference in Belgrade dubbed ‘Tomorrow Conference’, I came across the founder of a company that does exactly that: blockchain-based data management.


The company is called Inery and what they aim to do is convert data into readable form, provide backup and blockchain-based management with cross-chain capabilities as well.


The native token is called $INR, on the Tron network (based on what I could find), you can find the contract here.

And you can find more info here.


$INR is the unit of exchange to access decentralised storage of Inery, you can stake it, become a validator and participate in governance.


When non-crypto people ask about crypto and NFTs they usually get a pre-ready answer that this is a “blockchain-based” asset or currency. That’s a non-answer that I personally think it’s not very useful because you then have to explain what the Blockchain is.


So the idea of managing data using ‘blockchain technology’ means nothing unless you can explain, easily and quickly, what the blockchain can do for you.


Let me give a shot: the blockchain is based on cryptography, which is basically like math. You can either manage data relying on human beings and trusting they’ll do the right thing, or you can use blockchain technology and trust that 2+2 always equals 4. Always.

GoodDollar: can crypto be used for Universal Basic Income?

I’ve watched a fantastic YouTube video, or perhaps I should say a montage, highlighting four different views on UBI, Universal Basic Income.


Two of the pundits were for it and two were a bit more dubious but all four presented valid arguments and none, this is the best part, relied on political or ideological standpoints. They were simply weighing in the pros and cons.


In short, for those who aren’t familiar, UBI stands for Universal Basic Income, the idea that each individual should receive a basic income regardless of employment status.


I still don’t know where I stand on that because everything I hear sounds reasonable, and these conversations are always a lot more complicated than they seem. For example, some claim that UBI will be inevitable because technology will ‘automate’ a lot of people out of existence. Robots are already capable of doing a lot of the things we do but better, and they’re expendable.


They’re never tired, they don’t complain, don’t ask for a raise.


It is also true that it is statistically very likely that a small percentage of people would self-destruct if given the chance to do so with a ‘free meal’, which brings us on what is, in my view, the biggest flaw with UBI and it is that – so far, at least – it hasn’t really worked very well in all those geographies where it’s been implemented.


UBI was introduced in the country I was born about three years and so far it’s been a complete disaster. But that’s a different conversation for a different day.


The biggest issue is it incentivise people to stay home and not work because why would you bust your a*s for a meagre pay day when you get nearly the same amount doing nothing.


But that’s FIAT UBI, what about crypto UBI?


I came across a project called GoodDollar because a friend and (technically) former colleague is working at the company and I’ve been using for a few months. I still don’t know where it can go, but I think the use case is worth talking about.


Very easy. You just log in every day and click ‘claim’, and you link your MetaMask to redeem the token.


Crypto is a game that plays by its own rules and the dynamics of this world make it a bit easier to distribute UBI, with all the benefits that come with it, while drastically reducing the drawbacks.


Will it work?

I bought some YOUNG but I’m not 100% convinced I’ve done the right thing

A few months ago, I was looking for a decent get-paid-to-walk app and found Young Step and Young Platform.


Step is the app that pays you to walk, make correct predictions about the price of certain cryptos in the next 3/6/12 hours, take part in challenges, and you also get tokens when you complete quizzes. The Step app is paired to the Platform app, which is basically an exchange to which you can transfer Young (YNG), the native token of the app, and trade it for euros, dollars, pounds or other cryptos.


The YNG token has a fixed price of €0.24 (around $0.25) per unit and could only be utilised internally… until now.


A couple of weeks ago, Young temporarily suspended all trading, sales and purchase of YNG but only because, a few days later, they announced they would list the token, which means people will be able to trade it freely and the price will be dictated by market dynamics.


I’ve earnt around 150-200 YNG so far and I’ve sold them all because I couldn’t see the point in holding onto the token but now things changed, so I bought some YNG back, and I’m not sure I did the right thing.


Young said 1 million YNG tokens have been sold in the first 4 days of community sale and as soon as the token becomes available elsewhere, everyone expects it to go up. But will it?


Young said they’re aiming for a circulating supply of 100 million, which quite frankly sounds like a tall order.


The sale ends on May 24, after which date, the market will do whatever the market decides to do. Fingers crossed.

Tomorrow Conference Belgrade, the largest Metaverse meetup in Europe, Day 1

The Belexpocentar is located in an area of Belgrade that looks like it was developed yesterday. That’s because it more or less was. You’ll find it on the south-west side of a long and wide avenue that runs from the West Gate Tower to the river.


Around it, and on either side of it, there’s a collection of modern, aluminium- and glass-made buildings and facilities. On the opposite end of the very same avenue, a collection of brutalist residential buildings made from concrete. It’s an interesting juxtaposition, and it defines the architecture of Belgrade.



Day one is usually spent looking for an answer to the question: “who’s here?”


Tether founder Craig Sellars is here, along with Tanja Bivic Plankar, President of Blockchain Alliance Europe, along with Dusan Kovacevic, founder and CEO of Exit Festival.


Dogma, one of Belgrade’s major brewing companies, is also here. And I know this because I’m having a craft lager they specifically created for the event called ‘TMRW’.


And when I say “I’m having A craft lager”, I mean I’m having “multiple” craft lagers.


The crypto space is a multi-trillion-dollar market that started from a spark called Bitcoin in 2009 but the truth is the crypto market as we know, with a million different projects and ideas and people talking about them, is the direct result of the crypto crash of early 2018.


When Bitcoin briefly reached $20,000 before crashing over 80%, people began paying attention, even though it was for the wrong reasons and it created the foundation for a market that’s a lot more solid, and is getting bigger and more relevant.


I’m here because I live here, but other people – most of them, actually – came here precisely for this conference. Most of them had never seen Serbia before and this tells you everything you need to know about crypto.


Crypto will shape its own regulations and determine its own geography based on governments’ reaction. Slovenia, Portugal and Serbia, for example, are more relevant in the crypto world than Italy, France or even Germany because they moved faster, reacted more quickly.


The Tomorrow Conference will take place again, in Belgrade, one year from now. And that leaves me with two questions: will Terra (LUNA) still exist? And will the TMRW lager still be available?

First European panel in the Metaverse to take place in Belgrade, Serbia (and I’ll be there)

Belgrade is the former capital of Jugoslavia, the capital and largest city in Serbia, a global and vibrant hub. And it is also my home. I relocated here about a year ago and when I heard there would be a 3-day crypto-focused event at Belgrade Fair, on the right bank of the Sava River, I immediately knew I had to go. So I will.


This is the largest Crypto, NFT and Metaverse conference in Europe and while I’m looking forward to the 7 panels, 100 speakers and 50 keynotes, what really, really interests me is the people. I wanna know what people think. What they bought, or sold, or hodled, and why, and how, and when. And their take on the Metaverse and NFTs being used as an art form but also as a means of authenticating property and assets.


ECD’s founder Aleksandar Matanovic will be there, along with Craig Sellers, founder of Tether, Tanja Bivic Plankar, President of the Blockchain Alliance of Europe and Bruno Ver, blockchain specialist and founder of the top NFT business NIFTIFY.


I will be sharing updates in the coming days here, as well as on Bitcoinea.
