Smartlands Platform Newsletter: December
January 3, 2019
Here are some of the December highlights we felt we should share with you.
Equity Token Standard Workshop: the Beginning of a Wonderful Journey
Beginning a saga with an anecdote is not exactly customary, but we will do it anyway because the Equity Token Workshop in Brussels of which, we’re proud to say, we were a part, in just two days has grown into Digital Assets Standards Association. The Association, in turn, will most definitely continue to mutate and with time morph into something else entirely, promising us a never-ending saga of hatching a plan to create a single globally accepted standard for equity tokens. We called this plan “finding a marshmallow,” and here’s why. Read more.
Vote Is In: Binance Coin To Be Represented On Smartlands Platform
On Dec 4, we’ve announced a community vote on the issue. In no uncertain terms, we asked you whether adding Binance coin as a payment method on the Smartlands Platform would be beneficial for the community or have no significant impact on the future of the project. Read more.
Smartlands Platform at FinTech Connect 2018: It’s All About Data
It’s a bit bizarre that on two ends of the same building FinTech Connect 2018 and Black Hat 2019 coexist in McCartney-esque perfect harmony, but here we are. One of the explanations that we gleaned from the industry insiders is that there are gaps between some aspects of fintech that can be filled by the black hats. For example, security and testing firms are particularly interested in point-to-point data extraction and management, and those grey areas in between “points” is very much a black hat space.

How To: Setting Up Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) on Smartlands Platform
Passwords are everywhere. We use them to access our money or communications, even in our social lives. At first, we used one password for everything, but that wasn’t good enough, so we started making our passwords even more complicated and began using password managers to organize the dozens or hundreds of the unique passwords we used. But no matter how sophisticated our password system was, it was never enough to prevent account takeover because all it took was one phishing email or database exploit and your password was out in the world. So if passwords are impossible to protect on their own what do we do? Read more.
Smartlands Platform: What You Need To Know To Make Your First Steps as an Investor
Assuming, you’re familiar with the process of setting up an electronic wallet online, this step is easy; you’ve done it many times and will do it again. However, to become an accredited investor on the Smartlands Platform and gain complete access to all investment opportunities, you are required to create an account on the Smartlands Platform and go through the KYC (Know Your Customer) process that is an essential international regulatory requirement. In other words, there’s no way around this one (we’ve put together a short tutorial on how to get verified on the Platform, please, study it well and proceed confidently). Read more.
Smartlands Platform STO Fee Structure Explained
One of the most popular queries in all of our communications channels with our community is how do fees work on the Smartlands Platform. Excellent question. In the past, we’d somehow managed to skip over the part when we explain the fee structure utilized by the Smartlands Platform and now we finally come to our senses and gladly remedy the situation.
