The recent evolution of technology with the creation of smart contracts and blockchain applications, the scientific world now has the resources to do what has never been done before.

As a trader and investor I went on a search for a coin that is utilizing the three major parts of this new technology:

  • Digitizing Health Care
  • Natural Health Application
  • Blockchain Technology

My search brought me to NHN Token.

Natural Health Network

A NATURAL SOLUTION TO HEALTH, BASED ON BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY

The one thing that really sparked my interest in NHN and their model is not just the connection of NATURAL health care providers having a direct digital link to their patiente but also the education involved in the process.

In today’s fast paced life style, no one takes the time to analyze their way of life, instead they ask a doctor for the magic pill to make all their pains go away.

At first this approach gained traction, pop a pill and off you go, but now we are starting to see more long term damage to this approach in patients healthcare.

NHN focus is not just blockchain application of natural medial treatments, but the incorporation and education of a healthy life style and how it can improve peoples lives.

Roadmap
What Platform will Natural Health Network Offer?
Imagine a world where the knowledge of health is in the palm of every individual. A world where unnecessary health bills and chemically enhanced medicines becomes a distant memory. This possibility is what the Natural Health Network is all about. We offer a combination of natural health treatments and medicines with the added benefit of a personalised holistic approach consultation, all done from your computer or smartphone, without having to see a practitioner in their consulting rooms.

An individual or health practitioner can use the platform to describe symptoms through a series of questions, designed to calculate medical and genetic history in a whole. The platform will then search a vast area of medical information to calculate probable causes. These probable causes will have prescribed natural medication that will eliminate the root of the problem rather than supress it. Once the cause and solution has been calculated, the platform will advise on the nearest outlets, linked to the platform, that supply these medications. An order can then be placed and delivered to the door of the individual or medical practitioner.
The Natural Holistic Approach
Holistic health is an approach to life. Rather than focussing on an illness or specific parts of the body, this natural approach to health considers the whole person and how he or she interacts with his or her environment. The goal is to emphasize on achieving maximum well-being, where every part of the body and mind is functioning at the very best possible levels.

Natural holistic health is based on the law of nature that a whole is made up of interdependent parts. The earth is made up of systems, such as air, land, water, plants and animals. If life is to be sustained, they cannot be separated, for what is happening to one also affects all the other systems. In the same way, an individual is a whole made up of interdependent parts, which are the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. When one part is not working at its best, it impacts all of the other parts of that individual. Furthermore, this whole person, including all of the parts, is constantly interacting with everything in the surrounding environment. For example, when an individual is anxious about a exam or interview, his or her nervousness may result in a physical reaction, such as a headache or a stomach ache. When people suppress anger at another over a long period of time, they often develop a serious illness such as migraine headaches, emphysema, or even arthritis. Natural holistic health in an ongoing process. As a lifestyle, it includes a personal commitment to be moving toward the right end of the wellness continuum.

NHN Coin Usability
The NHN token will be used as a payment method, or reduced payment method, for the platform and medicine. Apart from this, the NHN tokens will be listed on exchanges for trading purposes.

See it as a voucher for discounts at a store, where you can use a globally accepted payment method to purchase your required items or services without having to give out credit card details or pay excessive fees on your transactions. Plus the added benefit of having your transaction processed instantly.

The NHN coin will also be a mineable coin with block rewards, making it a good coin to use on multiple levels.
NHN Coin As A Currency
The NHN coin will be a crypto currency on its own, specifically designed to work on a permissionless blockchain concept, making it open for anyone to join and get rewarded with coins for verifying transactions. We aim to set a standard in the development of our currency for future health sectors to use, thus creating a standard off which future currency developers can work from.

Being a 100% Proof of Work (POW) coin, it makes our currency easy for the general user to verify and satisfies certain requirements. Our POW system is based on SHA-256 (Secure Hash Algorithm) functionality which are mathematical operations run on digital date by comparing the computed output from execution of the algorithm (hash) to a known and expected hash value, allowing the user to determine the data’s integrity. By using SHA-256, we also improve privacy and security for our currency users.
Private Sale and Coin Offering
Natural Health Network will be hosting a coin private sale before the Initial Coin Offering (ICO). This private sale will give investors a chance to purchase coins at a discounted rate, and investors will receive equity within the Natural Health Network secured by a smart contract as a security incentive. There will only be an amount of 1,500,000 NHN coins available in the private sale. Funds generated in the private sale will be allocated towards the costs involved in the ICO, exchange listings, research and development.

At the Natural Health Network, we are a forward thinking company, adapting and embracing to the ever changing technology to better customer experience. For this reason we chose to utilise crypto currency technologies as a form of payment method and asset holding. Issuing coins which essentially translates to a form of profit shares and constitutes non direct ownership in our technology, has enormous benefits to all who choose to be involved. Our loyal customers are afforded the opportunity to become non binding stakeholders in the very company they so diligently support, and along with our investors, benefit from the growth of our company. We believe that this type of business model far outweighs traditional business models and sets the path for future investment in a more personal peer-to-peer concept, which in turn allows us to share our success with those who supports our vision and goals.

The Natural Holistic Approach

Holistic health is an approach to life. Rather than focusing on an illness or specific parts of the body, this natural approach to health considers the whole person and how he or she interacts with his or her environment. The goal is to emphasize on achieving maximum well-being, where every part of the body and mind is functioning at the very best possible levels.

 

Natural Health Network just launched their ICO as of April 1st 2018 and is being kicked off on a brand new exchange called Bitify.co.za

During the month of April, NHN is giving away a as part of their ICO

From April 1st 2018 to April 30th 2018, NHN Coin ICO is offering a 100% bonus.

Currently, and keep in mind that the exchange rates fluctuate, $1.00 USD is equivalent to $11.83 Rands (South African Currency).

So to simply buy into the first Silver Package, which is R25,000.00 is about $2,114 US Dollars.

According to NHN ICO, regardless of which package you buy, you will receive the 100% bonus, BUT those who get the Silver, Gold or Platinum Package also enjoy the benefits of profit sharing.

Silver Package

  • Purchase 25 000 NHN & receive 50 000 NHN as part of our 100% bonus pre-sale
  • Become a equity holder in the Natural Health Network
  • Receive 0.25% equity in the Natural Health Network
  • Receive 0.25% of all profits generated through the Natural Health Network Platform & Services, paid monthly
  • Equity & Profit distribution is secured by the Natural Health Network Smart Contract

Gold Package

  • Purchase 50 000 NHN & receive 100 000 NHN as part of our 100% bonus pre-sale
  • Become a equity holder in the Natural Health Network
  • Receive 0.50% equity in the Natural Health Network
  • Receive 0.50% of all profits generated through the Natural Health Network Platform & Services, paid monthly
  • Equity & Profit distribution is secured by the Natural Health Network Smart Contract

Platinum Package

  • Purchase 100 000 NHN & receive 200 000 NHN as part of our 100% bonus pre-sale
  • Become a equity holder in the Natural Health Network
  • Receive 1% equity in the Natural Health Network
  • Receive 1% of all profits generated through the Natural Health Network Platform & Services, paid monthly
  • Equity & Profit distribution is secured by the Natural Health Network Smart Contract

Please let me clarify one very important thing here, I am NOT offering the sale of NHN ICO, just simply showing what THEY are offering and explaining the benefits that could exist.

ICO’s are popping up left and right, but many of them are based on code that COULD do something. I am looking for coins that have actual use value and scalability in the current market space, while the “future concept” coins bring their white papers to reality.

In summary, NHN coin is set to  launch May 1st on Bitify.co.za exchange and begins its journey along side other coins, we get the front row seat to see if this value driven coin can not only survive in the fast paced crypto world, but perhaps even come out as a possible leader in the medical sector of cryptocurrencies.

Sincerely,

One cannot apply the criteria for what created the Tulip Mania bubble and the Tech Bubble of the 90’s to Crypto’s, they are three different beasts.


    • Bitcoin has more than halved in value since the start of the year, leading critics to say it’s in a bubble that’s deflating.
    • Jon Matonis, the cofounder of the Bitcoin Foundation, says the real bubble is in bond and stock markets.
    • Matonis thinks we’re entering a “post-legal tender age” and thinks it’s great that big banks are getting interested in crypto.

LONDON — A senior bitcoin advocate has dismissed fears that the market is in a bubble, saying instead that bond and stock markets around the world are being artificially inflated by central banks.

Bitcoin surged to over $20,000 per coin in the final months of 2017 but has since collapsed to around $7,000, leading skeptics to argue that that cryptocurrency was in a bubble that is now bursting.

Jon Matonis, who helped found the Bitcoin Foundation in 2012, told Business Insider: “To the people who say bitcoin’s a bubble, I would say bitcoin is the pin that’s going to pop the bubble. The bubble is the insane bond markets and the fake equity markets that are propped up by the central banks. Those are the bubbles.”

Matonis, who spoke to Business Insider at the Innovate Finance conference in London earlier this month, believes we are entering the “post-legal tender age … that isn’t driven by central banks.” Decentralized cryptocurrencies like bitcoin will power this shift, he said.

“Hard coded into the original block zero genesis block of bitcoin was a headline from The Times of London saying: ‘Chancellor on the brink of second bailout for banks,'” Matonis said. “All they’re doing is papering over the bullshit infrastructure. That headline epitomizes what bitcoin is about, that’s why it was hardcoded in there.”

Matonis was a currency trader for the Japanese bank Sumitomo and Visa before he helped set up the Bitcoin Foundation in 2012. The non-profit was created to help compensate the core developers of the bitcoin protocol. Matonis sat on the foundation’s board from 2012 to 2014 and remains an executive director.

‘The regulators are so confused’

Despite his skepticism about the existing financial system, Matonis thinks it’s “wonderful” that big banks such as Goldman Sachs are considering entering the world of crypto.

“I think it’s fabulous that they’re getting into it because it brings in new liquidity,” he said, adding that the institutions will help “mature the market” and reduce volatility.

“They’re going to develop futures markets, options markets, I even think you’re going to start to see interest rate markets around bitcoin,” he said. “We’re used to hearing things about Libor, the index for bitcoin interest rates is Bibor.”

Regulators around the world have been trying to come to grips with crypto and the UK recently set up a crypto “task force” to consider regulation of the space.

Matonis doesn’t think crypto should be regulated.

“I think we should operate in an environment of caveat emptor, let the buyer do his research,” he said. “This hopefully has forced a lot of investors to do more research. No one is forcing them to invest in ICOs [initial coin offerings]. If you’re worried about the risk, just walk away.”

He added: “The regulators are so confused, not just in Europe but in North America as well. They’re used to fundraising models that involve selling debt or selling equity.”

Matonis characterized bitcoin as a “third model for a startup to raise funds.”

“They actually issue utility tokens into the market that don’t represent equity, they don’t represent equity, they don’t represent debt, they represent a negotiable claim on the success of the token which is in effect, hopefully, linked to the success of the company,” he said.

“This is an entirely new model and it doesn’t fit in any of the regulator’s boxes.”

It seems that no matter which direction you turn, there is now talk of Bitcoin, Lambo’s and Mining just about everywhere.

Here’s the thing: Just about any device capable of banging a few numbers together can contribute to a cryptocurrency mining pool, and that means almost any device can technically mine any cryptocurrency you choose, even Bitcoin.

Thing is, it might take you a little while.

Setting up

For our tests to figure out how long it might take you to make, say, $1,000,000 in Bitcoin using just a couple laptops, we used user-friendly mining pool NiceHash. Getting set up on NiceHash is as simple as creating an account and downloading a free software suite. Once it finishes installing, connect your NiceHash wallet by signing into the app, and then all you have to do is click start, and you’ll be rolling in bitcoins in no time!

A dip in the pool

To figure out how long it’d take for us to strike it rich mining with just a laptop, we used an Asus ZenBook UX330UA with an integrated graphics chip. Just in case, we also had a couple others standing by — a Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming, a Dell XPS 13, a Microsoft Surface Pro, and a MacBook Pro 15.

nvidia ceo maintains that cryptocurrency mining is not their business edit take 3 00 01 15 22 still005

First, we ran the ZenBook on its own for about 24 hours to establish a baseline, but pretty soon after that we realized our little pool was going to need more power if we wanted to come anywhere close to our goal of $1,000,000 in bitcoin, so we fired up all of our laptops, bringing some serious horsepower to bear on the task.

Doing that was as simple as installing the NiceHash software on each laptop and connecting them all to our NiceHash wallet. After we left ’em running for another twenty-four hours, we were starting to see some real results.

Results

How much did we make with all of our laptops toiling away in the bitcoin mines? Well, we made about nine cents a day with just one laptop, and with all of them running we made around forty cents a day, give or take, depending on the current price of Bitcoin. That means it would take us an excess of 6,800 years to become bitcoin millionaires from mining off just a couple laptops.

So, while you can mine Bitcoin — or any other cryptocurrency — from any old laptop, you probably shouldn’t. Unless you have a couple thousand years to spare.
