“The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), the consortium charged with creating standards for businesses to build applications using the ethereum blockchain, has created a system of reward tokens to incentivize groups of companies. The system is backed by Microsoft and Intel.

There are three types of tokens used to motivate participation: a reward token, a reputation token, and a penalty token. This sort of tokenization lets organizations use economic bets and voting to guide decision-making.

Devcon 5 will be where attendees will experience how ethereum – enabled by EEA member-driven standards – delivers real-world value through tokenized enterprise solutions.”

McAfee DEX reportedly will entail no Know Your Customer checks, block no jurisdictions and charge a single platform fee of 0.25% for takers.

Any ETH-based token (ERC-20 standard) can be added without a fee to the beta version, with more unspecified tokens to be supported in the future.

Forty-one games of 20,000 people – I’m going to go ahead and say that many of those people don’t own any crypto whatsoever. Suddenly by downloading the Golden 1 Center app, they are going to have an ERC-20 wallet with an ERC-20 token.”
