TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / February 21 2018 / First Bitcoin Capital Corp (OTC PINK: BITCF), a prolific generator of more than 100 unique cryptocurrencies has launched "Petroleum" coin designed to become a commodity-based utility token employing the Ethereum ERC20 BlockChain protocols with trading symbol "OIL" in order to provide a liquidity and management solution to global petroleum industry participants.
In order to capitalize on the excitement surrounding Venezuela's move to back its own cryptocurrency with that country's oil reserves and to fulfill BITCF's preparations prior to the oil-producing nation's announcement, First Bitcoin Capital Corp wasted no time in setting the stage to beat Venezuela to market.
The Petroleum (COIN:OIL) Smart Contract development creation occurred 2 months ago, as can be witnessed in the following Etherscan explorer link: https://etherscan.io/token/0xd938959d215d84b668d39848785d76d298466f19#readContract
While a small amount of activity regarding Petroleum (COIN:OIL) may be seen on Ethereum explorers, those issuances and test transfer amounts identifiable are not available for cryptocurrency markets nor are any of these tokens yet backed by oil or any other asset. The Petroleum tokens will only begin trading on exchanges upon 1 barrel of oil supporting each outstanding OIL token through legally binding trust agreements in conformity with all relevant laws, rules, and regulations.
The Company intends to exclusively incorporate Petroleum (COIN:OIL) into and have it function as an integral part of the upcoming PetroBloq energy trading platform which is being developed as a joint venture between Petroteq Energy, Inc and First Bitcoin Capital Corp.
The growing trend and potential for tokenization of commodities is significant based on the success of Tether (a coin that is backed by $USD and is trading more than $2 billion per day on international cryptocurrency exchanges in more than 400 markets) combined with the massive size of global oil reserves.
First Bitcoin Capital's CEO, Greg Rubin stated that "Petroteq's and First Bitcoin's revenue model for our joint venture known as "PetroBloq" includes earning fees from those oil producers that elect to utilize our Ethereum tokens as a means to achieve greater liquidity and manageability of their oil production. Interested oil producing nations and companies are invited to join us in this decentralized revolution by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org"or email@example.com
Petrobloq (www.petrobloq.com) will be the first Blockchain based platform developed exclusively for the supply chain needs of the Oil & Gas sector. The Upstream, Midstream and Downstream industries each have their own challenges and complexities. Petrobloq anticipates that its users will enjoy cost and time savings, increased transparency and the ability to mitigate the constantly evolving geopolitical atmosphere and market fluctuations. PetroBloq enjoys membership in the Enterprise Ethereum Consortium which is made up of 200 prominent members including major firms such as Accenture, BBVA bank, Deloitte and Microsoft. A subsidiary of Pemex was the first oil producer to join the Petroloq consortium.
