Reggie Middleton, Disruptor-in-Chief at Veritaseum, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Arua SEZ LIMITED to develop a Veritaseum technology-driven redevelopment of a special economic zone (SEZ) in Uganda. In the words of Veritaseum’s founder, “We’re rapidly prototyping a real world Wakanda using Veritaseum machines and blockchain tech! Veritaseum plans to significantly outdo the economic growth witnessed in areas such as China of the 2000s or Dubai of this decade.”

Notable aspects of the project:

  1. Special Economic Zone status has been granted to the subject property implying a  ten year tax holiday, zero customs and administrative priority for customs and clearing.
  2. Mixed industrial planned redevelopment of an existing industrial park with water and power infrastructure on site. The main purpose of the project is to boost bidirectional Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Fast Moving Goods & Commodities (FMGC) to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), South Sudan and Central African Republic ,  Exports of Natural Resources, ie., cassiterite (tin ore), coltan (tantalum), gold (AU), tungsten and timber.
  3. The processing of food and agricultural products to be link to international value chains - namely, coffee, fish and derivatives, shea butter, honey - all produced in East and Central Africa, with financialization achievable via a tokenized commodity platform powered by Veritaseum technology. Think Wakandan level CME or CBOE.
  4. Veritaseum contract-driven lease and rental agreements through the blockchain and Veritaseum contract-driven dividend policy for tokenholders.

Arua SEZ Limited has successfully passed Veritaseum's internal AML and compliance checks and we are preparing to move very quickly to put our resources to work in the continent of Africa.

Veritaseum made a very interesting and controversial research report predicting significant margin calls in the yet to be launched bitcoin futures market. Well, now that we have two months of trading data to analyze, we get to brag and boast say, "We told you so". This is also a good opportunity to show how we can enable investors to gain exposure to bitcoin through VeADIR. We have revisited our Bitcoin future margin call research offered to VERI holders in early December of last year. This updated research covers the date of listing of CBOE BTC futures (11 Dec 2017) until last week. We have kept the same assumptions that we used in the initial research, except that we have now inserted actual BTC future prices for the aforementioned period These assumptions are summarized below:

After 8 man/months of effort, we have finally released the 52 page Populous 2.0 report.

This report was updated multiple times after being flagged for various deficiencies. Download the Populous Forensic Valuation and Analysis 2.0 - Public Edition, and feel free to comment via the comment section below.

A PayPie report that is even more in depth than this one is planned for release next week. That will be for VERI token holders only. This public version does not have the valuation bands, but HODLers of VERI tokens can purchase them for the equivalent of $500 US in VERI.

We have released a feature complete version of our VeADIR product (look here if you don't know what the VeADIR is, click here if you need to know what Veritaseum is) for private beta to those who own 1000 or more VERI tokens or strategic partners. It is literally a technological and financial marvel and is definitely the first of its kind. This email address is being protected from spambots.
