Bitpanda launches Pantos, The First Multi-Blockchain Token System

Bitpanda, Europe’s leading retail broker for digital currencies, has started an open-source research project named Pantos, together with scientists from the Technical University of Vienna, the Academy of Sciences, and the Research Institute for Future Cryptoeconomics (RIAT).

Austria, Vienna - March 14, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

Bitpanda, Europe’s leading retail broker for digital currencies, has started an open-source research project named Pantos, together with scientists from the Technical University of Vienna, the Academy of Sciences, and the Research Institute for Future Cryptoeconomics (RIAT). The project will develop the Token Atomic Swap Technology (TAST) and will release the developed work as an open-source technology.

Pantos will be financed by a Technology ICO, which will be capped at 1500 BTC to ensure the development of open-source technology that should enable a key technology for a token-based environment – the Token Atomic Swap Technology (TAST).

Pantos wants to solve the blockchain fragmentation problem. After Bitcoin, many digital currencies based on the blockchain technology have been launched, each with their own specifications and protocols. A future with multiple blockchain networks is very likely.

Founders of Bitpanda Eric Demuth, Paul Klanschek and Christian Trummer Stated That:

“The various networks compete not only for investment, resources and market share – but also for knowledge. This is where Pantos comes into play: With the new technology and the PAN Token, for the first time, it is intended to enable valuable transfers of tokens across several blockchains,“

With it’s open source approach, Pantos will enable sustainable collaborations between blockchain projects and common technical standards for cross-blockchain transfers can be set. Pantos will be initially launched on Ethereum, with Bitcoin, Litecoin, Lisk, Komodo and Waves, all first blockchain-generation, support expected to follow soon.

The Three Founders Also Stated:

“It is particularly important to us, that the associated Technology ICO finances the new technology and research, which is why it is limited to 1500 BTC, to provide an open-source technology for the industry. It is deliberately not a start-up financing system.”

Enabling Real-Time Arbitrage:

Pantos will enable near-real-time arbitrage trading, resulting in increased volumes across all decentralised marketplaces and an expected increase in demand for PAN tokens. Traders will be able to exploit the resulting price differences between pairs of ‘digital currencies’.

A new metric: Blockchain Domination Index

The flexible portability functions allow the PAN token to form a common denominator and thus, the introduction of a new unit designed for the crypto-economy. The Blockchain Domination Index displays the token usage and distribution among all supported blockchains in real time. Thanks to PAN, this allows the significance of each blockchain to be measured on the basis of genuine usage.

Lopez shoots 63 to lead LPGA's NW Arkansas Championship

Jun 23, 2018

ROGERS, Ark. — Since its first year on the LPGA Tour in 2007, the crowds at the NW Arkansas Championship have belonged to Stacy Lewis. Another former University of Arkansas star staked her claim as the hometown favorite Friday when Gaby Lopez shot a career-low 8-under 63 to take the first-round lead at Pinnacle Country Club. Like Lewis, the two-time winner of the tournament, Lopez starred as a three-time All-American for the Razorbacks before joining the LPGA Tour in 2016. Despite flashes of potential, Lopez had yet to join Lewis among the ranks of the world's best — missing the...

Machado hits 2-run HR in 15th as Orioles beat Braves 10-7

Jun 23, 2018

ATLANTA — For Braves manager Brian Snitker, playing the matchups meant pitching to Manny Machado with first base open and a marathon game on the line. The Orioles slugger made that strategy look foolish. Machado hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the 15th inning, lifting Baltimore to a 10-7 win over Atlanta on Friday night after each team staged dramatic ninth-inning rallies. The Braves surrendered six runs in the ninth, and then scored four times in the bottom of the inning. Peter Moylan, Atlanta's eighth pitcher, hit Craig Gentry to open the 15th. Gentry moved to second on Austin Wynns'...

Richard sets down 18 of 21 in Padres' 6-2 win over Giants

Jun 23, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO — Eric Hosmer's first single barely stayed fair and never made it past third base. His second was a little crisper and gave the Padres a little cushion in the ninth inning. It also assured Clayton Richard's career-best winning streak stayed intact. Hosmer reached base three times, Richard pitched three-hit ball over six innings for his fourth consecutive win and San Diego beat the San Francisco Giants 6-2 on Friday night. The Padres were clinging to a 3-2 lead in the ninth before scoring three times. Hosmer's two-run single to left off Will Smith was the pivotal blow...

Solid outing by Heaney leads Angels past Blue Jays 2-1

Jun 23, 2018

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Andrew Heaney feels awfully comfortable on the mound in Anaheim — and the results reflect that. Heaney pitched seven solid innings in another quality start, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 2-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night. In his last six starts at Angel Stadium, Heaney is 4-1 with a 0.88 ERA. Since April 27, his home ERA is second-best in the majors to Jon Lester (0.56 ERA). "I like pitching here," Heaney said. "It's a familiar place. Pitched the majority of my career here. It's a good place to pitch when...

Shields wins decision over Gabriels; Hammer next?

Jun 23, 2018

DETROIT — Claressa Shields slugged her way through 10 spirited rounds against Hanna Gabriels — then looked ready to fight another opponent right afterward. Christina Hammer — the unbeaten German who had won the bout immediately before Shields' — made her way into the ring after Shields beat Gabriels in a unanimous decision. That led to a bit of a commotion. "I don't go over there in Germany and jump in the ring when she wins a world title," Shields said. "She comes over here, she's been to three of my fights, sitting ringside, jumping in the ring. ... I'm...
