Events continue to unfold rapidly in the world of crypto. Two guests on episode 84 of The Wild West Crypto Show illustrated that well. First up was Mike Winston with JetToken, which has launched what Winston calls the ‘Uber of the Skies’.
On day two of World Crypto Con in Las Vegas, Drew Taylor and Brent Bates, hosts of the Wild West Crypto Show, caught up with Winston, who announced that he was “doing jets.” Winston has started a chartered membership program that will broker jets, regardless of a traveler’s destination. The company, Private Jet Coin, has 4,000 planes at its disposal. Its Jet Token platform can be accessed by app and is now available on the iOS store. To get off the ground, Private Jet Coin has applied to the SEC for permission to launch a token offering or some variation thereof.
Second on the program was return guest Lyn Ulbricht, who is continuing her FreeRoss campaign. Her son, Ross Ulbricht, is the creator and operator of infamous darknet market website Silk Road. In 2015, Ross was convicted of money laundering, computer hacking and conspiracy to traffic narcotics. He was sentenced to double life imprisonment plus 40 years, without the possibility of parole.
Global traveler Jonathan Keim, communications director at CryptoCurrencyWire, was back from New York City in time for his weekly cameo appearance. His trio of updates began with the announcement that Unstoppable Domains is launching a $1 million grant program for wallets, browsers and exchanges. Unstoppable Domains, a software company that builds domains on blockchains, has announced an additional $1 million to help wallets, browsers and decentralized applications integrate blockchain domains. Blockchain domains improve user experiences in wallets by replacing cryptocurrency addresses with readable names. However, unlike regular domain names, no renewal is necessary. Once purchased, owners have their domain names forever (http://nnw.fm/pR7So).
Next on Keim’s list was ‘Crypto Hardware Wallet Maker Ledger’s Vault Secures $150 Million Crime Insurance Policy’. Ledger, a developer of security and infrastructure solutions for crypto-assets, has acquired a crime-insurance policy that covers digital assets. Now, among other things, the Ledger Vault platform will come with a customizable crime-insurance program that ensures users’ digital assets for up to $150 million. The coverage includes all third-party theft of users’ master SEED phrase and private keys in the event of a physical security breach of a hardware security module (HSM) at a secure data center (http://nnw.fm/6Mi1y).
Finally, in ‘Coinbase Joins Regal Assets to Offer Insured Crypto IRAs’, he noted that crypto stands at the threshold of the $5.2 trillion individual retirement account (IRA) market. Regal Assets, an alternative investments firm, has partnered with custodian Kingdom Trust and crypto exchange Coinbase to develop and provide fully insured bitcoin and cryptocurrency individual retirement accounts (IRA) in the United States (http://nnw.fm/6e2Md).
Consumers will be able to choose from established crypto offers such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and Litecoin, as well as from more exotic tokens such as EOS, Tezos, Zilliqa, Chainlink, Maker and Basic Attention Token. In all, Regal Assets will support 30 different tokens.
