ABBC Proudly Unveils Buyaladdin in Rockefeller Center, New York!


ABBC foundation is proud to announce the Buyaladdin shopping platform. Buyaladdin is truly the next generation e-commerce app that will revolutionize mediums of exchange and prove to be a stepping stone in making cryptocurrency mainstream. We are honored with the privilege to make this innovational announcement in Rockefeller Center, New York on July 16, 2019.

Buyaladdin is the first and only online shopping platform to accept crypto as a payment method. ABBC foundation has worked hard to establish itself as the bridge to cryptocurrency and e-commerce with its projects. Aladdin Wallet has already been launched before the event and was a sneak preview of the disruption it would make in the crypto world, having the unique ability to send crypto through chat.

The Buyaladdin Launch event was hosted by its CTO, Stanley Park. Park talked of the changes that the shopping platform would make: ‘’A whole new world’.  Buyaladdin is announced to launch in October and is set to be used by over 100 million crypto users. Buyaladdin has already been registered with a list of shopping malls, such as Amazon, eBay, Alibaba, Rakuten, and AliExpress, to name a few. The platform has integrated over 50 big names globally.

One of the problems with cryptocurrency has also been the uses for it. Besides exchanging for other crypto there was never anything that it could actually purchase. A study by Chainalysis reveals that only 1.3% of Bitcoin transactions involve a merchant. Buyaladdin is looking to solve this, wherein during the event a product demonstrator for the app used Bitcoin to buy a pair of sneakers on the app — a pair of Vans to be specific. Buying cryptocurrency involves a lot of risk because values can be volatile, but ABBC foundation’s new shopping platform is poised to make investors confident.

TNC CEO Bruce Jeong spoke about the changes Buyaladdin would bring, saying ‘’It will be like a boom, like so different from the beginning.” TNC is a company that is set to merge with more than 500 blockchain companies this year.

The event closed with Liberland President Vit Jedlicka giving his final thoughts on Buyaladdin. Liberland is a free republic that has plans on being a crypto-state by running the country through a decentralized autonomous organization as per President Jedlicka’s vision.

A world with paperless payment seems more and more likely to happen as each innovation bests the next. ABBC has a lot more in store for the years to come and Buyaladdin is geared toward catapulting the crypto world into mainstream. On that note, we would like to thank our supporters of ABBC foundation, as well as the Rockefeller Center for having us.

These Grandma's in One Remote, Frozen Corner of The World are Mining Crypto to Keep Warm, and Earn Coins...


Considered one of the remote corners of the world, these grannies living deep in Siberia are mining Bitcoin - and loving it! Power is cheap and typically much of it is used to simply cool down the mining rigs. But where the snow never melts - keeping miners from overheating isn't a problem. The cost of a mining rig is paid for after the first 8-9 months, then it's all profit for these crypto-seniors.

TNC Group’s Official Event Launch Unveiled Buyaladdin Shopping Mall...

TNC IT Solutions Group (TNC) is a global blockchain development firm based in Dubai, UAE. With the vision of uniting the cryptocurrency world, TNC has formally introduced the company’s major objectives, business strategies, and synergized ecosystem during the official event launch yesterday, July 16, at the Rockefeller Center in New York.

The opening keynote for the event was delivered by the Free Republic of Liberland’s Global Honorary Ambassador-at-Large Steven Melnik. He spoke about Liberland’s vision of becoming a crypto-and-blockchain powered society that runs within a decentralized government, collects voluntary taxes, and promotes personal and economic freedom to its citizens. In line with TNC’s goal, Liberland will benefit from TNC’s services on blockchain consulting, and will receive comprehensive assistance in integrating blockchain technology and finding global standard developers suitable for the micronation’s development.

Among the highlights of the event was the presentation done by TNC’s CEO Bruce Jeong. According to Bruce, TNC was established in October 2018. It currently has global branches around different parts of the world including the UK, Singapore, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Russia, and India, among others. With its four main objectives being Token Development, Blockchain Solutions, Blockchain Academy, and Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A), TNC has built business strategies in collaboration with many industry experts and corporate leaders.

Currently, TNC is in the process of appraisals and evaluation. With substantial resources, they have evaluated more than 1,700 companies listed on CoinMarketCap. After careful consideration, TNC will select 500 companies with the most potential to succeed within the crypto industry. Moreover, the TNC token that will be developed soon would be integrated as one of the payment methods on the Buyaladdin shopping mall platform. Having said that, Buyaladdin is on its way to gathering 100 million Aladdin Wallet app users through TNC’s M&A project.

A significant part of the TNC event launch was Buyaladdin’s public announcement and live demonstration. Buyaladdin aims to be a leading online shopping platform that provides an extraordinary e-shopping experience through cryptocurrencies. Resolving the issue of online transactions and high transaction fees, shoppers can conveniently shop online using crypto through Buyaladdin.

The Buyaladdin app will go live in October, and shopping enthusiasts, as well as crypto users can begin online shopping within major e-retailers integrated within the app. This global marketplace will include Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Rakuten, Lazada, and many more which will be added in the near future.

Alongside this business venture, TNC has also invested $5,000,000 to a newly-released digital wallet application — Aladdin Wallet. The funds will contribute to further developments within the app, ensuring fast and secure crypto transactions made possible through its built-in chat messaging function, and protection from security threats. Aladdin Wallet users will have the privilege to use the beta-version of the Buyaladdin app in September.

Reaching out to expert consultants from different sectors around the world, TNC will certainly pave its way to success in no time. Respected individuals like Bruce Porter, Hideo Ito, Clara Florey, Arben Kane, and Misha Hanin are among the mentioned trusted advisors who believe in TNC’s vision.

Indeed, with TNC’s event successfully launched in New York, more updates are expected to be heard about this company. Having ambitious projects and goals in mind, TNC will make a huge difference in the tech innovation industry — and everyone should be ready for it.

Google to Force Ad Viewing in Chrome, Even w/ Ad Blocker Installed! But for One Company and Cryptocurrency - This May be GREAT News...

Google Chrome Sinking Ship
Companies will test their customer's loyalty if the upside is large enough, and on that note, Google's next set of plans for Chrome include some changes that I strongly believe will go down in history as a major misstep for the company.

The basic 'what you need to know' is - after a new version of Google's Chrome browser gets released, they begin plans on what comes next.  The plans for what will follow the current version of Chrome you may be using right now, are outlined in a document titled 'Manifest V3'.

Inside Manifest V3 Google addresses the issue of ad blocking, specifically ad blocker plug-ins for Chrome developed by 3rd parties but offered by Google in the Chrome webstore. Some inside of the company share a strong disagreement with the current structure of approving and offering browser extensions that once installed, block Google's own ads.  They see this as them costing themselves what is likely hundreds of millions in revenue each year.

They're not wrong about that - Google even fills a couple of the ad spots on our site, and as someone involved in various projects over the years that turned to Google to fill ad space, I can vouch the revenue earned has been on a steady decline, even if the total number of visitors is on the rise - webmasters around the world are in agreement on what to blame, ad blockers.

A site could be twice as popular as it was 5 years ago, but earning less than it was then.  Depending on how tech savvy a sites audience is, having 10,000 visitors in your traffic stats, but seeing only 2000 of them were served an ad is common now.

Ironically, sites that attract the older, less computer literate generations can still do quite well as they load up internet explorer, and every ad you send them.

The actual changes Google will make to accomplish this comes in 2 parts.

First, changing the rules for the 3rd party developers who make the ad blockers.  If they want their Chrome extension to be available in Google's webstore, they'll need to make sure their ad blocker doesn't interfere with Google's advertising services.

Second, for any developers who thought 'we'll just have people download it from our site instead' - changes to Chrome's API (this is how the developers code interfaces with Chrome's code) now the ad blocker won't be allowed to see an ad is coming to stop it from loading, it will see it the same time you do on screen.

Even developers on Google's message board are surprised there hasn't been an uproar from the public, with one saying "If anything, the current public response is quite mild. I would expect 1000 times more noise and outrage everywhere" and Google sees the lack of angry users as them getting the green light.

So I feel confident in saying - it's happening, don't expect a reversal on this, expect to see Google ads again soon.

There's 1 player in blockchain & cryptocurrency space positioned to benefit from Google going against their users...

Already well known in the cryptocurrency world is the Brave browser, the product backed by the BAT token.  You won't find many disagreeing with the statement that there's a lot of potential here, that's why they've already managed to get their token in the most desired position on the market - listed on both Binance and Coinbase.

But many don't realize - Brave is a modified version of Chrome!

Google decided to make Chrome open source, allowing anyone to access the source code for a stripped down version called "Chromium" making it possible for someone to build on the same framework Chrome is built on. 

Most Chrome extensions work on Brave currently, and most fully functional ad blockers will continue to even after this update.

This won't be the first time Brave has undone Google's wrongs...

Brave is already basically a less-creepy version of Chrome.  They've made the browser harder to track as you go from site to site, by removing it's fingerprint, a unique code only your computer will have, created by looking at it's unique combination of specifications, and configuration.

At the same time, people who WANT ads is starting to catch on...

But not how Google is proposing it.

There's several companies now promoting browsers or extensions where they show ads, but share the revenue with you.  Among those companies, once again is Brave can be found pursuing the emerging trend.  If someone's going to get paid from your web surfing, shouldn't it be you?

Make your plans because soon you'll wake up, see ads in places you've never seen them before.

Then you'll realize you're actually just seeing ones that were always there, they were just blocked.  Stay one step ahead, download Brave now rather than wait until you start seeing ads in Chrome again.

Honorable mention: Another alternative browser focused on user privacy and control, Dissenter.

How do YOU feel about the changes Google is making to Chrome?  Will you keep using it?  If not, what's your solution?

Know The Tax Laws Regarding Forked Coins? Nobody Does! Congressman Wants Law to Stop IRS from Penalizing People Until They Explain...

Congressman Tom Emmer has shown himself to be one of the few elected officials with a genuine grasp on the cryptocurrency markets.

We first mentioned him last year when he announced his intent to bring much needed clarification to several grey areas that cryptocurrency holders trying their best to follow the rules have been forced to guess in the meantime.

The following announcement was just sent to us, directly from his office.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) reintroduced the Safe Harbor for Taxpayers with Forked Assets Act, which prohibits penalties against taxpayers until the IRS issues guidance on how to report gains or losses in "forked" digital assets. 

In 2014, the IRS issued guidance which treats digital assets like property. Since then, no guidance has been issued on a number of reporting questions, including forked digital assets. Congressman Emmer led a letter along with 20 members of Congress to the IRS urging additional guidance. On May 30, Commissioner Rettig confirmed that guidance would be coming “very soon.” More than 30 days later, no guidance has been issued. 


This bill would establish a safe harbor for taxpayers attempting to report gains or losses in these forked digital assets. “Forks” are splits in digital assets that result in two independent digital ledgers. For example, Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash. The bill would provide assurance for taxpayers that they will not be penalized for reporting this information to the IRS. The prohibition on penalties would continue until the IRS establishes a set of rules regarding the tax treatment of forked cryptocurrencies. 


The bill is a reasonable way to insulate taxpayers from potential liabilities that are no fault of their own, stemming primarily from the present lack of clear guidance on forks from the IRS. Taxpayers are only able to comply with tax laws when the law is clear and individuals that attempt to report these assets have been unfairly targeted. Until the IRS provides specific guidance regarding the appropriate means of reporting them, these individuals should receive a safe harbor.  


Following the reintroduction, Congressman Emmer released the following statement, "Legislators should be embracing emerging technologies and providing a clear regulatory system that allows them to flourish in the United States. Taxpayers suffering from the uncertainty of tax guidance are being unfairly punished for investing in an emerging technology. This safe harbor will protect the taxpayers until the IRS addresses this important issue.”

President of Blockchain-Powered Micronation to Attend TNC Launch in New York...

TNC IT Solution Group, a multinational blockchain development company that envisions to unite the cryptocurrency world, will be having a launching event on July 16 at the Rockefeller Center in New York City. Approximately 200 influencers and personalities in the blockchain industry and selected esteemed figures from different sectors of society are expected to attend.

One of the key speakers who will be present during the TNC launching event is Vít Jedlička, the President of Liberland, a micronation located between Croatia and Serbia. As of April 2019, there are currently 800 registered citizens of Liberland.

Established in 2015, the Free Republic of Liberland was only considered before as a ‘no man’s land’ located on the west bank of the Danube River. Jedlička envisions it to become a crypto-powered land having a decentralized government, voluntary taxes, and personal and economic freedom for its citizens — staying true to its motto, “to live and let live.” This territory has also been accepting digital currencies for funding like Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), and Bitcoin Core (BTC).

Liberland strongly stands that in a world filled with over-taxation and over-regulation, their citizens will progress through the help of forward-looking technologies such as cryptocurrencies and DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) incorporated systems. At present, Liberland has opened representative offices in more than 80 countries and established permanent diplomatic missions in numerous states in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, the United States, Hungary, Croatia, and Serbia, among others.

Jedlička expresses his support for TNC’s mission of providing comprehensive solution and expert appraisals to projects which have the highest potential. Liberland is also involved with spreading decentralized and innovative new technologies like cryptocurrencies. It has its own unit of currency — Liberland Merit — which is now listed on the Altilly exchange and is traded with USD.

In line with this, TNC will collaborate with the governing body of Liberland and will offer its services on blockchain consulting and will assist Liberland in integrating blockchain technology and finding global standard developers suitable for its administration.

TNC IT Solution Group is a blockchain-based company that has offices in different parts of the world. It is always on the lookout for quality blockchain projects to fund and guide through mergers and acquisitions (M&A). So far, TNC has already gained valuable collaborations with industry leaders, blockchain experts, and technology-inclined enterprises.

Further updates regarding the TNC launching event will be announced soon.

Keep in touch with the latest developments regarding TNC through its official channels!

Claim $25 FREE Bitcoin Now - If Voyager Wasn't Available in Your StateBbefore, it Probably is NOW!

Voyager has expanded support to include *almost* every state in the US!  But even if you're not in one of these states but still in the US, we suggest signing up because soon it will be available where you live.

Throw in that they'll give you $25 to start off with (if you register here before downloading the app) and it's official, you have no excuses!

Note: You must sign up on the website before installing the app, then download the app and use the same e-mail address on both. 

That's because the app automatically does the price hunting for you.  You'd be surprised how much the price of the same coin can vary from exchange to exchange. The price we're generally seeing is really just the average number, taken from a variety of sources. So if BTC is around $3980 on some exchanges, and closer to $4020 on others, sites that give you the current price will simply say $4000.

Most traders have their exchange of choice, and don't even bother checking the price elsewhere.  If you decide to start, get ready to spend a lot of time signing up to all these exchanges, if you do it on the fly, by the time you've opened an account on the exchange with the lower price, you may have already missed your chance.

With Voyager, not only will it find the lowest price - but you don't even need an account anywhere else.  From 1 app you'll be buying from multiple exchanges seamlessly.

The next thing people assume is that a tool like this comes with some kind of membership fee, or high trading fee, but Voyager has neither.  Membership is free, no monthly or annual costs, and they only make money if they can find a coin for you below market prices - taking a cut of the savings.  No savings means they they make nothing - so they have an incentive to aggressively find the best deals.

“Our vision to bring the crypto brokerage experience in line with what investors have come to expect from equity markets is now a reality,” said Stephen Ehrlich, Voyager Co-Founder and CEO. “We knew there was a better way for investors to access a cost-efficient and transparent platform validated by our overwhelmingly positive feedback and demand from investors who are eager to start using our platform.”

The company as a whole has been making some pretty big moves, recently becoming publicly traded and buying out universal wallet creator Ethos.

You can sign up for the $25 credit and get the app here.
