Earlier this year number one token tracking site Coinmarketcap registered over 1500 different cryptocurrencies and saw the total market cap of these combined digital currencies surpass the incredible value of $800 billion US dollars.
Despite a recent market slump, the number of tokens into the market has no slowed down, and the total market cap is expected to continue rising.
Faced with such exponential growth, the digital assets market is facing something in the way of a crisis in a management and investment sense. One of the largest challenges is the substantial disparity between the rapidly developing digital assets market and the currently lagging financial infrastructure service.
It is common knowledge that the basic service of the traditional financial industry is the account and assets management service provided by the banking industry.
In the rapidly developing cryptocurrency industry, digital asset wallets are providing all the basic attributes of a traditional bank account, but with additional transparency made possible through decentralized blockchain technology.
Despite these advantages there are still many problems with account safety, convenience, accessibility and token transfer speed.
In addition, cryptocurrency tokens sales, (or ICO’s) have faced recent mainstream media scrutiny, investment process issues, and problematic token distribution schemes. These issues have resulted in a bad name for crowdfunding and a hesitancy for bigger investors to participate in such projects.
The Blockchain based bank BitUN aims to resolve these issues and apply the stability and accessibility provided by all commercial banks. The Hong Kong-based bank acts as both a private savings bank and investment bank, providing the most important and basic services for both financial markets, comes into being.
BitUN, A Cross－Chain Assets Private Bank Based on Lightning Network 2.0
As Bitcoin, Ethereum and the other Blockchain networks apply different network protocols, it has proven to be a challenge to establish a channel for the lightning network between Blockchain networks of different structures.
BitUN, based on CAS Blockchain network, creatively defines the meaning of the universal protocol–Lightning Network 2.0 that links Blockchain networks of different structures.
This is a digital currency settling and liquidation network that resolves the hard problem to perform assets management and circulation on many Blockchain networks safely and conveniently.
When BitUN is establishing the lightning network channel, it locks the assets of the customers at the original chain through Smart Contract so as to trigger BitUN to execute the Smart Contract that extracts the value.
The value extracting Smart Contract will trigger the double-entry of BitUN system and the bookkeeping is able to record the assets of the customers accurately in the original chain.
The whole process is performed through Lightning Network 2.0, which guarantees the safety of the original chain assets but also greatly enhances the transfer speed, with minimal fees.
Users can also return the original chain assets safely through BitUN authorization. All the information can be acquired through the Blockchain browser of BitUN to guarantee the traceability of the assets.
BitUN is also dedicated to building Lightning Network 2.0 into an open protocol of the industry, establishing a world largest cross-chain digital currency transfer and liquidation ecosystem in which all of the assets on the chain can be transferred faster and safer. BitUN has recently been securing numerous strategic partnerships with various global digital asset exchanges.
BitUN utilizes the Lightning Network 2.0 to provide total asset management, the circulation of blockchain networks on different chains, provide OTC trade, whilst connecting with numerous global exchanges.
BitUN, an ICO Store Based on Smart Contract
At present, the crowdfunding projects on the market are in chaos. The investing process has become problematic. Generally, investors have to transfer the assets to the address whether it’s credible or not. The project issuer still performs a manual accounting for the assets and token of investors.
It is also not often possible for participants to track the distribution and defrosting plans of the token. Participants generally have no choice but trust the project founders.
BitUN will aim to integrate the investment, distribution and defrosting plan of the token with Blockchain through reshaping the crowdfunding process with Smart Contract and Blockchain technology. The distribution of token and the defrosting plan of token are set up before distributing the token that is locked up on the Blockchain through a smart contract.
BitUN also optimizes the whole process in which users will have a safer and faster crowdfunding experience. Furthermore, all of the token distribution and defrosting plan can be checked through the Blockchain browser of BitUN. The tokens will be transferred to the targeting account only after meeting the enough defrosting requirements. The entire process is openness, transparent and decentralized.
