The ICO is ongoing and ends approximately on May 19 or until all Crowns have been sold. What is a #VIVA Crown? And Why do I Want One? 1. ONLY 6,500 VIVA CROWNS ARE BEING RELEASED. After the ICO only 1 VIVA Crown will be created each week as part of the settlement procedure between mints. Only 42,000 will ever be created. We believe they will become treasured financial assets. 2. THE RIGHT TO MINT VIVA COINS Every quarter each VIVA Crown Holder receives a Treasury Right to mint an agreed upon number of VIVA Coins (the base currency in the VIVAconomy). These rights can be sold to a mint if you so desire. 3. THE PRIVILEGE OF GRANTING AWARDS RIGHTS Every quarter an amount of #VIVACoins generated by transactions in the VIVAconomy is set aside for worthy causes. As a Crown Holder you have the right and privilege of naming a recipient. 4. HAVE A POWERFUL VOICE WITHIN THE #VIVACONOMY Each VIVA Crown Holder has one vote (regardless of the number of Crowns she may possess) in all of the important decisions that affect the VIVAconomy. No one has more influence. Ready to join? Sign up for Beta: https://www.tradeqwik.com/ What is VIVA? VIVA is a unique blockchain project with a technical design that evolves beyond Proof of Work, Proof of Stake and Distributed Proof of Stake. VIVA introduces a concept called Proof of Authority; a system that delivers instant transactions and seamless consensus. Our CTO, William Banks contrasts various models in his Game of Chains article published on Steemit.(1) But to summarize, Proof of Authority disposes of certain egalitarian notions involved in weaker consensus models and replaces them with cryptographic signature proofs and business contracts enforced by the network and also backed by the network. Our blockchain differs from run of the mill fare as well. Designed to be a multidimensional graph rather than linear like a traditional chain. Under this design the VIVA Network is more akin to neural networks, with linked, weighted, interconnected data and an optimizing mechanism which solves the NP hard “traveling salesman problem”, in order to reroute the network into multiple optimal configurations depending the tasks required of it. By drawing from information in our Content Addressable Network (CAN), the VIVA ecosystem allows for a more robust and intelligent network. Rather than reinvent the wheel, VIVA takes advantage of hundreds of millions of dollars in research and investment by starting off with a custom fork of the powerful Hyperledger Fabric, which is backed by the likes of IBM and Intel. Our version is called Ultra Ledger. VIVA has a three-tier cryptocurrency model consisting of VIVA Crowns, VIVA Coins and market-pegged instruments we call vX which are tied to local fiat currencies for storing value like vUSD, vMXN or vEUR, etc. VIVA Crowns are an indivisible digital asset secured by the best cryptography available. They grant the owner rights to access the network, operate a business referred to as a mint, and receive a Treasury Right (TR) every 90 days to mint a share of the total VIVA coins allotted within that quarter.

The red pill and its opposite, the blue pill, are popular cultural symbols representing the choice between embracing the sometimes painful truth of reality (red pill) and the blissful ignorance of illusion (blue pill). The terms, popularized in science fiction culture, are derived from the 1999 film The Matrix."
