To our dear B4Biz community,

“What do you think the future of crypto is?”
PLEASE NOTE: the B4B airdrop for ZIPC holders is now closed! Congratulations to everyone who successfully applied for free B4B tokens - they'll be distributed very soon! (updated 6/4/22)
We know you've been waiting a while, so here it is - the ZIPC-B4B airdrop!
Welcome to Part 2 of our exciting announcement series, outlining the new direction for Black Tie Digital and the B4BIZ platform! In Part 1, we discussed the new direction of the platform, and some of the reasons for our new name. In this post, we’ll be looking at our new token, B4B, as well as outlining the opportunities available to holders of ZIPC.
As mentioned in Part 1, the Black Tie Digital and Zipett teams made an executive decision to move towards differing outcomes. We’ve already covered our commitment to maintaining the direction of the platform in the same manner our clients expected - the development of a marketplace, directory and support services dedicated to helping consumers and businesses transact within the digital economy safely.
We are delighted to have been informed of the fast-paced development of the Z4LIFE platform - the Zipett team’s new project - and congratulate those who have helped fund and develop the platform to maturity. We anticipate that their positioning as both early and continued supporters of Zipett in its various iterations, not least as Z4LIFE, will position them strongly to take advantage of the opportunities afforded by entry into the lucrative market sectors of health and wealth management.
As our respective companies chose to focus our efforts towards unaligned markets, our non-conjunctive sales pipelines resulted in differentiated funding outcomes. For this reason, Black Tie Digital have already credited all of our members who have directly supported our project via the established onboarding mechanisms. Go team!
It is understood through our continued communications with the Zipett/Z4LIFE team that their intention is to credit all ZIPC holders who contributed to the development of their platform directly. This appears to include those who have been supporting the Zipett project(s) since prior to Black Tie’s involvement with Zipett, as well as those who purchased or received coins directly from key Zipett stakeholders over the past 12 months. We applaud the Zipett team’s commitment to their community, and anticipate a positive outcome for all holders. As ZIPC was created (and a significant percentage of the max supply was distributed) long before our involvement with the Zipett platform, we find it encouraging, if not inspirational, that the team at Zipett have shown such ongoing dedication towards their community.
Well, what a year it was! Let’s start this post right – by thanking each and every one of you reading this who supported us through our initial development and growth phases. While the team at Black Tie are extremely proud of the developments we’ve achieved and the milestones we’ve conquered on our path to this point, we are even more proud of the amazing community who continue to support us in our endeavours to this very day. So - here’s to you!
Short-term Cryptocurrency Predictions
Here are some ways that cryptocurrency is expected to transform businesses in the short term:
Cryptocurrency is a digital currency that utilises encryption to generate and transfer funds.
According to reports, one in five Australians owns a form of cryptocurrency, making them one of the countries with the highest crypto adoption rates. Australia’s openness to cryptocurrency has 2.9 million people trading on their phones and banks opening up to the digital currency.
Well, B4BIZ community, another month gone means another month closer to the listing! We're delighted to be able to bring you more news and updates from the world of B4BIZ, including an exclusive offer just for our supporters, a raft of exciting new partnerships, more news on the upcoming B4BIZ Academy and lastly - a very special competition! Let's dive right in...
Update on vesting opportunity
Now the announcement so many of you have been waiting for! How would you like the opportunity to support the B4BIZ platform as we move to the open market, and be rewarded for your commitment? Introducing... ZIPC Vesting! The concept is simple. Remember fixed-term deposits? You'd leave your money locked up in a bank account for a set period of time, and in exchange, the bank would reward you with a set interest rate. The only problem? The banks just aren't that friendly these days - in fact, the average fixed-term deposit interest rate is just 0.3%! Not exactly what you'd 'term' a great return (sorry - we couldn't help ourselves)! Fortunately, this isn't the world of legacy banking and traditional finance (or trad-fi, as it's now known in crypto circles). This is the exciting world of cryptocurrencies - and we have an offer that's going to blow those rates out of the water! We are proud to be able to offer all our members a yield of 6% on a 12-month deposit (or stake, as it's known in the industry)! That's an incredible 20 TIMES the average from the big banks! Simply stake your coins by sending them to a particular wallet (or contract address), locking them up for 12 months, and when they're returned, you'll be sitting on an extra 6%! No need to predict market movements or pay attention to rates and trends - just a solid 6% gain! How good is that? The reason is also simple. We know our B4BIZ community is built on trust, and we have faith that our members are as committed to the long-term success of the project as we are. However, the market is a fickle beast. By choosing to vest your tokens with us, we can actively show that our members are in it for the long haul, providing certainty and in turn attracting even more members to the platform. And since you're going to be helping build the overall success of the platform, we think you should be rewarded for it! IMPORTANT NOTE - this offer is open to all B4BIZ members. However, should you be one of our Founder's Club members who have supported us since the beginning (meaning you acquired your ZIPC before April 2021), we have an exclusive offer just for you. Watch your emails - you'll be getting a very important one, very soon! We'll be sending out information on how to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity shortly. Stay tuned - check our socials, and more importantly keep an eye on your email inbox - and we'll be in touch soon!
Over the past few years, cryptocurrency has grown massively.
