Reading Time: 3 minutes

SINGAPORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bithumb Global, the leading digital asset exchange in the world, announces the highly anticipated crypto asset, Bithumb Coin (BT), which is the native token for the recently announced Bithumb Chain.

Bithumb Global announces the release of their native token titled “Bithumb Coin” which will hold the ticker name, $BT. The token allows transactions within Bithumb Chain which enables a plethora of different use-cases. Bithumb Chain is built by first rate esteemed professionals within the IT, security, cryptography and financial verticals.

What is Bithumb Coin

Bithumb Chain is the decentralized open-source protocol that powers the products, services, and infrastructure within the Bithumb Family ecosystem which helps capture value from both upstream and downstream of the trading business. To further bolster the infrastructure of the Bithumb Chain ecosystem, Bithumb Family has a variety of new technologies adding to the value network of the blockchain, including a creative EaaS (Exchange-as-a-Service), which is a unique protocol PSP (Profit Sharing Protocol). The EaaS allows users to access the service through one-click, and adding to this structure to incentivise users is Bithumb Coin (BT).

Bithumb Coin (BT) enables transactions within Bithumb Chain and provides the necessary mechanism for facilitating true incentives and value within the protocol. The first principle of the Bithumb Coin (BT) mechanism design is to facilitate the flow of value of the Bithumb Family ecosystem, thereby promoting sustainable development.

Token distribution has been described as follows: 30% of the token distribution is based on the user incentive pool, while another 30% is allocated for trading incentives with a point system which will be disclosed at a later time. The other functionality of the coin are as follows: Utility within Bithumb Chain for handling fees, usage rights of the Bithumb chain system and paying the transaction fees of the Bithumb Global platform as well as payment procedures for new products in the future. Through the system lease contract, users can also lease their BT to obtain leasing rewards. Moreover, BT holders can vote and participate in the governance of Bithumb Chain which includes project listing nomination. In effect, Bithumb Chain eco-participants not only participate in the formulation and direction of network development, but also the investment decisions of Bithumb Chain. Examples include BT allowing holders privileges in the platform’s marketing activities, including additional raffle tickets to BG Staging and additional rate of return when participating in token staking. Other perks of holding BT includes participating in Bithumb Chain events such as fair token distributions. Bithumb Coin has many perks designed for the holder.

Relationship between Bithumb Coin (BT) and Bithumb Chain

25% of the BT’s token distribution is based on the chain development and sustainability. The interrelationship of Bithumb Chain to BT can be analogous to how a smart blockchain city would function. Bithumb Chain would represent the city block while various members of the Bithumb Family would represent individual structures within the city and Bithumb Coin (BT) serves as the interconnecting roadway between the different structures within the city block. An example of this in action is as follows: BT holders can stake a choice number of tokens to become a community node of the Bithumb Global platform and regularly participate in Bithumb Family listing nominations. 50% of the platform revenue will also be used for BT buyback until 150 million tokens remain. Bithumb Coin (BT) would facilitate the exchange of value and information across the Bithumb Chain, thereby promoting the sustainable development of all on-chain products, platforms, and services.

Bithumb Korea is one of the largest bitcoin exchanges in the world. Its daily trading volume accounts for 75.7% of the bitcoin market in South Korea, accounting for 15% of the global bitcoin market. With Bithumb quickly being the most user-friendly digital asset ecosystem with a rock solid cyber security system and massive liquidity, BT has a bright future ahead for their 8 million Bithumb Family users already participating within the ecosystem.

Bithumb Coin’s token supply will be scarce with only 300 million tokens minted indefinitely.

Europe Waste-to-Energy (WTE) Market Report 2019-2027 –

Business Wire



Reading Time: 3 minutes

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Europe Waste-To-Energy (WTE) Market 2019-2027” report has been added to’s offering.

Europe’s waste-to-energy market determines the industry to proliferate with 6.69% of compound annual growth rate during the forecast years from 2019-2027.

Data from the Eurostat suggests France to have generated 501 kg of municipal waste per capita in 2015. In 2015, the country recycled only 39.5% of the household waste that was generated, as compared to the other countries in Europe. France thus lags in comparison with other countries in the European region, considering the EU targets on waste management. The Energy Transition Act, was passed in France in 2015, which was aimed at improving the rate of recycling by at least 10% by the year 2020. Moreover, in 2015, the country became one of the top six countries in the region to use composting – a process that uses waste for creating energy.

Spain has taken measures to initiate plans for waste management in order to reduce its dependency on landfills, and has thereby become a viable market for waste management. However, the lack of incentives for managing waste, insufficient separated waste collection; lack of coordination between the different administrative levels; insufficient management of bio-waste, are some of the factors that have led to Spain having relatively low energy recovery levels, when compared to other European nations.

Realtime Robotics Extends Relationship with Mitsubishi Electric

Business Wire



Reading Time: 2 minutes

Will unveil its motion planning technology coupled with robots at iREX

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#automationRealtime Robotics, the inventor of responsive motion planning for industrial robots and autonomous vehicles, announced that it is working with Mitsubishi Electric Corporation to develop a custom integrated solution that pairs Realtime Robotics’ smart motion planning technology with Mitsubishi Electric’s industrial and collaborative robot product lines. The intelligent robots will be on display at iREX later this month and there will be a series of demonstrations showcasing the motion-planning technology in action.

Despite the growing demand for automation, multi-robot work cells continue to require complicated, time-consuming, and costly programming, which prohibits the automation of new tasks. The custom Mitsubishi Electric seamless stackable solution significantly reduces work cell development time and costs while reducing cycle time with interlock-free, collision-free autonomous planning. The joint solution delivers the productivity and efficiency gains that increased automation has promised but failed to deliver as yet.

Incorporation of Realtime’s technology enables industrial robots to work safely in dynamic, unstructured environments, allowing the robots to evaluate millions of alternative motion paths to avoid a collision and choose the optimal route before making a move, all in milliseconds.

The integrated robots will be demonstrated at Mitsubishi Electric’s booth (S1-03) at iREX in Tokyo (December 18-21) and will be commercially available in 2020.

Quotes and Commentary

“Our shared vision with Mitsubishi Electric is to help robots realize their potential in industrial settings. We are excited to unveil our motion planning technology coupled with Mitsubishi Electric’s robots at iREX, removing many of the boundaries to greater robotic automation.”

Peter Howard, CEO, Realtime Robotics

“Smart manufacturing requires productive and safe robotic systems. With Realtime’s innovative motion planning technology, together, we will be able to transform industrial automation.”

Satoshi Takeda, Senior Deputy General Manager of Nagoya Works, Mitsubishi Electric

About Realtime Robotics

Realtime Robotics has developed a specialized processor to generate safe motion plans in milliseconds for industrial robots and autonomous vehicles. Its solution enables robots to function together in unstructured and collaborative workspaces, as well as react to dynamic obstructions the instant changes are perceived. Its solutions expand the potential of automation. Learn more about Realtime Robotics here and connect on Twitter and LinkedIn.
