SAN JUAN, March 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BOTS, Inc. (OTC: BTZI), a vertical integrator and an emerging innovator of products, technologies, and services for the rapidly growing digital robotics automation and manufacturing industry, announced today that it has signed an evaluation agreement with Emercoin International Development Group, a leader in solutions to provide distributed blockchain services for business and personal use.

11. Randpay - High-scalable stateless micropayment service for IoT or analogous applications applicable for the NFT marketplace.

NFT- (non-fungible token) is a data (algorithm) unit on a digital ledger called a blockchain, where each NFT can represent a unique digital item, and thus they are not interchangeable. NFTs can represent digital files such as art, audio, video, and other creative work forms. While the digital files themselves are infinitely reproducible, the NFTs representing them are tracked on their underlying blockchains and provide buyers with proof of ownership. Blockchains such as Ethereum, Emercoin, First Bitcoin (majority-owned by BOTS Inc), and Flow each have their own token standards to define their use of NFTs.

NFTs can be used to commodify digital creations, such as digital art, video game items, and music files. However, access to any copy of the original file is not restricted to the owner of the token. The first NFTs were Ethereum-based and appeared around 2015. Increased interest in the market for NFTs has resulted in increased speculation, as some of the same investors who had previously speculated on cryptocurrencies began trading NFTs at greatly increasing volumes.              

NFTs mostly run on a proof-of-work blockchain, which is less energy efficient than a proof-of-stake blockchain. Emercoin platform is designed to be energy and transaction cost-efficient. It is one of the first-ever NFT platforms in existence.

In a recent CNBC article titled Crypto, collectibles are selling for thousands — and celebrities like Mark Cuban are cashing in, describes the fact that the cryptocurrency world is abuzz with talk of digital collectibles, unique virtual tokens that can represent anything from art to sports memorabilia.

People have been paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for these NFTs or non-fungible tokens. One investor, Sheldon Corey from Montreal, Canada, told CNBC he paid $20,000 for one of the thousands of computer-generated avatars called CryptoPunks. NBA Top Shot, a platform created by Dapper Labs in partnership with the basketball league, attracted $147.8 million in sales in the last seven days, according to NFT data tracker CryptoSlam. The service lets users buy and sell short clips showing match highlights from top basketball players.

Even Mark Cuban and other celebrities are cashing in on the NFT craze. The billionaire, Dallas Mavericks owner, has auctioned digital goods online and owns some himself.

The increased momentum for these tokens comes as bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have rallied significantly in recent months, and at a time when people are spending more of their time indoors due to coronavirus restrictions.

BOTS Inc is also evaluating investing in Emercoin Group to support Emercoin's market expansion and acceptance worldwide, emphasizing NFT developments.

Oleg Khovayko, Emercoin Lead Developer, said, "Key difference in Emercoin from other cryptocurrencies is that we are using blockchain not just for transfer monetary values.  Emercoin is a technological platform for distributed, censorship–proof and scalable distributed ledger services. So, we developed a suite of services running on top of the Emercoin blockchain that will be especially useful for many companies and even private persons. We developed NFT technology several years ago."

Also, our goal is to provide stable, robust, and easy to integrate services. Hence, our solutions are compatible with industry standards, proven their efficiency and security.

"We are excited to have the opportunity to evaluate this unique technological platform and possibly invest in EMERCOIN, especially due to their partnerships with Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT), RedHat, Bitfury, and other leading companies in this space- to deliver their blockchain services as Blockchain-as-a-Service marketplace, also known as BaaS Platform," -commented Paul Rosenberg, CEO of BTZI. "We are always looking for disrupting new and promising technologies while we are ready to invest in those companies to help them to market their technology worldwide."
