Blockport is a hybrid-decentralized exchange with a strong focus on user-friendliness, social trading features and building a knowledge sharing community. Hybrid means that you hold your private keys and your funds will never leave your wallet while trades are settled off-chain and through connected exchanges. Although the backend is somewhat complex we ensure that our members can easily buy, sell and store crypto with a few clicks.
We noticed that crypto gained a lot of attention and more non tech-savvy people are getting involved. However, current exchanges are not built for beginners that don’t necessarily have a background in technology. Therefore, beginner investors still have to face multiple barriers that keep them from actually investing in crypto. We aim to change this by bridging the gap between the crypto economy and the traditional world of finance to shift towards a digital and decentralized society.
Blockport focuses on user-friendliness and simplicity. This means that anyone, beginner or advanced, can use the Blockport exchange without having any prior knowledge or experience with professional trading. Unlike other exchanges, Blockport is not just about trading. As a social platform, we implement social trading and knowledge sharing features in the core of our exchange. Additionally, we offer our members the best of both worlds by combining centralized trading with decentralized storing of crypto assets. For more technical information about the Blockport functional design, please read our white paper.
Blockport Tokens (BPT) are ERC20 standard tokens created on the Ethereum blockchain. They are utility tokens that are used to pay for multiple functionalities within the Blockport platform.
The Blockport Token (BPT) can be used in the Blockport platform to pay for premium services such as: following or copying other members’ portfolios and discounted trading fees. It is not mandatory for Blockport members to own BPT, however, members are not able to use the social features without them!
You can purchase Blockport Tokens (BPT) in the private and public token sales starting the 3rd of January. If you missed the opportunity to participate in one of the token sales, you can purchase BPT from the small reserve held in the Blockport Tokenshop when we're live.
The 3rd of January 2018 we launched the pre-sale of BPT. After this successful pre-sale round there will be a public crowd sale the 24th of January 2018. If you want to participate in the crowdsale round please sign up on our website or contact us directly on our Telegram channel. We carefully select people to participate in this round. All info regarding the crowdsale round will be communicated privately after you’ve been whitelisted.
In order to participate in the Blockport pre-sale you need to have Ether in your own wallet account such as MyEtherWallet (www.myetherwallet.com) or Parity (www.parity.io). Be aware that you send ETH from your own wallet and not from any exchange where you are not the owner of the private keys. When the pre-sale is live you can send ETH to our pre-sale-token-address that will be provided to you on that same day.
Our HQ is located in TQ, which is a curated tech hub backed by Google and KPMG in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Therefore, you will see that our communication is mostly bilingual. We launch our platform in both Dutch and English, however other languages will soon follow. Crypto is cross-border, and so are we.
