Ripotr: Tokenizing Loyalty in Brand Businesses
Startups always come to make life a lot less difficult for the community while also promoting financial benefits for the project. This opinion is shared among the very many projects around the globe including the CEO at RIPOTR. In a recent chat with Raymond, he does well to bring us an update on the Loyalty based Business project.
It is no news that business-merging produces positive economic impact. The problems of Ignorance in relation to business-merger techniques, paperwork hassles and all that are some of the reasons we are not seeing a lot of mergers especially in Nigeria. RIPOTR provides these much needed unique business management solution to mostly small and medium scale businesses.
In his words, what RIPOTR does is create awareness of the benefit of small and medium scale enterprises merging, and also provides a platform to enable businesses to merge without hitches while still maintaining individual ownership of their businesses by using a franchisor Business model that exists on the Platform.
These are the key features of the business model
1. Providing a merger platform for businesses to merge and increase customer base.
2. Distributing free company shares in cryptocurrency tokens to customers that patronize businesses in the merger network
3. Maximizing marketing resources by Giving financial incentives to clients that help the merger network grow its customer base through recommending and inviting prospective businesses and clients to join the community.
4. Introducing a mobile payment system that ensures a profitable distribution of income from the merger.
“Any business or service provider can join our partner’s network, add their clientele to our database and then share in profit generated from the merger.”
When asked how RIPOTR works, Raymond had this to say;
Getting businesses to collaborate in some sense is key to success at RIPOTR
1. A business or service provider Signs up and gets registered with us to join the merger network of businesses.
2. The businesses get their every client registered into our database under them so we can track when these clients patronize other businesses in the merger and send them a commission.
3. Registered businesses use our mobile payment system to receive payment so as to enable effective transaction tracking and profit sharing.
BENEFITS FOR BUSINESSES SIGNED UP TO RIPOTR PARTNER NETWORK
Increase in patronage
Every business that joins the RIPOTR network experiences an increase in patronage because of the vast customer base of the merger and also consistent online and offline marketing plus promotions. we encourage customers to patronize businesses in the partners’ network through the incentive of distributing free company shares (cryptocurrency token) of RIPOTR for every transaction completed with any business in the network to both transacting parties.
More income for businesses
For every business that joins the RIPOTR partner network and adds its existing clients to the customer base of the merger, we keep track of other transactions made by these clients in the partners’ network and give a percentage of it to the business. what this means is that businesses in the merger do not depend on only their business to earn income, they also earn from other businesses in the network that their clients patronize.
Vigorous and effective marketing for businesses
Marketing is key to the success of any business and customers recommendation is the most effective form of marketing. Our franchisor business model provides a financial incentive to clients that help with marketing and growing our customer base by recommending the merger platform and inviting people they know to patronize businesses in the RIPOTR network. Every business that joins the merger gets to benefit from this marketing model.
Improved customer experience with mobile payment.
Mobile payment is a trend that is quickly catching up with customers. Smartphones enable users to make purchases and make payments via the mobile channel, without them having to use cash or credit cards. with our mobile payment system, businesses can offer an instant, cashless payment to customers, thereby increasing their own customer base and enhancing sales.
Small businesses are by way of illustrations, like broomsticks, they need to merge together to have a meaningful financial and economic impact. RIPOTR provides the bind that holds these business mergers together and still allows them to have their individual ownership.

France To Push For EU Partners To Adopt Its Cryptocurrency Regulatory Framework
It has been a formalised fact that the French parliament had cautiously approved a regulatory framework that included rules aimed at attracting cryptocurrency issuers and traders to establish their companies and platforms in France by giving them some official recognition. In the other way, this law ensure that these issues and traders are appropriately taxed based on their profit generations. This financial regulatory framework was passed on last week.
This new cryptocurrency regulation passed in France is obviously the first of its kind adopted by a major nation. Unarguably, it will allow firms that want to issue new cryptocurrencies or trade existing ones to apply for a certification.
As has been stated before, the certification will be granted by the French market regulator for those who want it. And hence, issuers, traders, custodians and investors will have to pay taxes on profits they make on those securities.
The major goal of this regulatory framework is to set up a market in mostly in the city of Paris for companies raising capital through cryptocurrency projects which would allow France to grab a slice of the expanding business while giving it some oversight of a niche which some fear could be a target for speculators.
Under this regulatory framework, France authorities would verify who is behind a new coin’s issuance or a trading platform, and check the companies’ business plans and anti-money laundering rules. The certification will give investors basic guarantees against outright fraud, but will not protect them against losses. However, the specific requirements companies need to abide by to get the regulatory stamp of approval are still to be defined by government decrees.
In the wave of this development, according to Reuters news report, France will ask for the European Union to adopt a cryptocurrency regulations similar to the one it brought in last week at a national level, becoming the first major country to do so.
This proposal was made known by Minister Le Marie in Paris at the event on blockchain technology. In his words: “I will propose to my European partners that we set up a single regulatory framework on crypto-assets inspired by the French experience. “Our model is the right one.”
Reuters equally reported that “the European Commission has recently launched a feasibility study on how to regulate the cryptocurrency markets, though no legislation is expected at least until late 2019 as the mandate of the current administration is ending.”
An all out War Against Craig Wright the Self-acclaimed Satoshi started by Binance CEO, CZ.
Binance announced it will delist Bitcoin Satoshi Vision tickered BSV following the numerous lawsuit filed against several persons in the cryptocurrency space notably Peter McCormack who was the recent victim of Dr. Craig’s alleged Cyber Bullying. Over the years Dr. Craig Wright has been claiming to be the creator of the first cryptocurrency Bitcoin which was built and released to the public as an open source project in 2009 following the global financial turmoil the world which saw untold impact on businesses and personal lives.
Craig’s claim to be Satoshi Nakamoto has been refuted by a lot of cryptocurrency and Blockchain enthusiast not over the years when various persons came up claiming to be the pseudonymous creator Satoshi Nakamoto. The desire to unearth the mystery man behind this border-less cryptographically protected currency has touched mainstream media and other enthusiastic fellows. This search has brought about many names popping up but all not proving true the cryptocurrency community requirements of the Identity of the mystery man. This requirement has been the same which has been requested from the notorious bitcoin creator claimant. To sign a transaction with the keys to the wallet popularly known to be Satoshi’s. This request Dr. Craig Wright has continually been refused to be heed to.
However, Dr. Wright agrees saying that he has the private PGP key, but that using it would not prove anything. The cryptographic proof he offers is of a different kind. The cryptocurrency community has clearly ultimately disregarded his claim and this is the reason for him taking legal actions on notable people in the space of which lastly on Peter McCormack which he responded to requesting public acknowledgement of Dr. Wright to the fact that he is not Satoshi and to apologize to the global community else face retaliating legal redress. This last act of legal cyber bullying has infuriated several key industry players which resulted to the decision by CZ the CEO of world top exchange Binance to delist the Dr. Craig’s Forked Coin the Bitcoin Satoshi Vision even after issuing a warning prior to the delist announcement.
Craig Wright is not Satoshi. Anymore of this sh!t, we delist!
Following this decision, several industry players in the Exchange and Wallet business also expressed their dissatisfaction on the activities of Dr. Wright by also deciding to toe the path of CZ in withdrawing support for the Bitcoin fork. Evidence from the Poll ran by the Kraken Exchange saw a 76% level of respondents agreeing to delisting of BSV saying it is Toxic.
This can be said to be an affirmation to the cryptocurrency opinion and support of the industry players to kick to the recesses of the cryptocurrency community Dr. Craig Wright. Expressing his anger on the situation of things, industry titans poured their opinions not excluding CZ who said
To be clear, I don’t choose sides on technology. We let market do that. I am against fraud, such as lying to be someone. As such, it is my strong opinion that: Craig Wright is fraud.
Commenting on the issue, Crypto Die Hard Loyalist John McAfee said
I hate to sway a poll but what idiot would believe that Craig Wright is Satoshi and therefore BSV is not a scam? If thete ever was a scam it is BSV!
Enough is enough! There at least a dozen crypto adherents who know the true identity of Satoshi. I can assure you, 100%, it is NOT Craig Wright. This absurd claim of Craig’s is incomprehensible. Mr wright: Have you no shame? Seriously sir! Have you no shame?
In a very special message posted on Twitter from YouTube, the CEO of Bitcoin.com Roger Ver called Dr Craig a liar and fraud and asked that he be sued again.
With industry players in the exchange and wallet business such as Kraken, Binance, Shapeshift etc already ending support for Bitcoin Satoshi Vision, one is left to wonder what will happen to the vision of the acclaimed Satoshi.
