The Month of April, 2019 has had a lot of activities at Ubrica offices. On Monday, 3rd week of April kicked-off with our usual seminar meetings held at Ubrica offices. The guests had arrived and sited by 10:00am. We welcomed and registered them in our guest book. Further to that, we checked on their wallets to confirm whether payment was done to the Ubricoin contract address. Each guest attending the seminar was required to pay a fee of UBN 100 to the Ubricoin contract address: 0xDB13025b219dB5e4529f48b65Ff009a26B6Ae733. Those who had not made payments to the contract address, assistance was given to them. The meeting was to discuss and enlighten the Ubrican community on the following agendas:
- Introduction to UBRICA
- Ubrica Projects: URCCs, uSTPs, BMIC
- Human Engagement: Soko Janja
- The Origin of Money
- Money Creation and Financial Engineering
- What is Ubricoin
- The Reason Why We Created Ubricoin
- Distribution of Ubricoin
- Funding Scientific Knowledge
- Ubrica Shares
The following Youtube links provide the seminar presentations by the Ubrica staff:
After the meeting we interacted with fellow Ubricans who wanted a more personal and detailed explanation on how to use Ubricoin, some were interested in buying shares and others wanted to know how they can contribute to the ecosystem.
In order for us to understand the matters of Law and cryptocurrency, our Legal team researched on a video titled Bitcoin Law Review Senate Hearings ICO Rule Security and Token Pay’s Legal threat. The video which was in details about the Senate hearings, covered discussions on Bitcoin, and gave opinions on Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) being ruled as securities. From the video, it was clear to the panelists observation that the congress men were afraid of what would happen if cryptocurrency was not regulated. Our legal team concluded that a utility token once conducted an ICO it instantly converts itself into a security token.
A conclusion with respect to Bancor protocol was met, that this method can work for us. Bancor protocol enables tokens to calculate their own prices using a transparent auto-balancing mechanism which converts directly from smart contracts.
For Ubricoin to be liquidated, we decided as Ubrica team to do 50 to 100 transactions every day, sending ethers from our wallets to the Ubricoin contract address: 0xDB13025b219dB5e4529f48b65Ff009a26B6Ae733. In the event to achieve the following:
- The volume value of Ubricoin.
- The price value of Ubricoin in Ethers/USD
- The market cap value of Ubricoin
- The ICO price of Ubricoin
- The erc20 transfer count which stands at 145 transfers.

In the next couple of days, we held meetings and had lessons on how Ubricoin can be traded on the decentralized and centralized exchange like https://www.starbitex.com/ which deals with wrapped ethers (WETH). In-order to use this platform to buy WETH and to sell UBNs, one must have and be connected to their Metamask wallet. Starbitex is a centralized exchange for it figures out the selling and buying orders by itself.
In-order to increase the selling power and buying power in the country, we have been enthusiastic to reach 14 million families in Kenya to enroll into agricultural products, produce and services into our retail market Soko Janja https://sokojanja.com/
Soko Janja, is becoming the leading market place of choice for everyone to trade their produce, products and services. Through Soko Janja, holders of UBN can now buy and sell goods and services from one another using UBN. Soko Janja will enable trades among members of Ubrica Community, otherwise known as Co-operative Society of Ubricans (CSU). Every holder of Ubricoin automatically becomes participant in CSU eco-system.
