General

Who is BlockQuake?
BlockQuake™ is a Fintech Company established in January 2018 with plans on merging the worlds of traditional finance & digital asset trading through various legal entities established in the United States and Bahamas.  The BlockQuake team is headquartered in New York City with offices on Wall Street.  

Its first line of business is a centralized trading platform (i.e. the BlockQuake Exchange).  The BlockQuake Exchange is open and features the top cryptocurrencies when considering market capitalization and plans on having over 250 trading pairings and at least six fiat currencies/wallets available for deposits and withdrawals during 2023.   

Who is the issuer of QuakeCoin?
QuakeCoin is issued by BlockQuake Funding Ltd. which was incorporated in the Bahamas on February 4th, 2019. BlockQuake Funding  Ltd. address is Mareva House, 4 George Street, Nassau, Bahamas.  BlockQuake Funding Ltd. is a subsidiary of BlockQuake Enterprises Corporation; the operational parent company of the organization.
What is QuakeCoin?
QuakeCoin is the loyalty token of the BlockQuake Exchange (i.e. an exchange token with utility benefits).  An exchange token is a digital asset that is native to a cryptocurrency exchange; in this case the BlockQuake Exchange; that is designed to increase an exchange’s liquidity, incentivize trading activity, or facilitate an exchange’s community governance process.

BlockQuake partnered with Polymath, one of the leaders in blockchain technology to create QuakeCoin tokens.  Utilizing the ERC-1400 protocol and partnering with Polymath, we will be launching Generation One of our exchange token. Utilizing aspects of the ERC-1400 protocol as a company, we are able to lock up company insiders and advisors from selling tokens; thereby controlling the annual circulating supply to allow for price appreciation. 

QuakeCoin will be listed on the BlockQuake Exchange for trading purposes and can also be traded peer-to-peer. The initial circulating supply of QuakeCoin tokens depending on purchases, bonuses, referral tokens, and Advisor tokens distributed; may be up to 1,500,000,000 during 2023.  These tokens will be issued by BlockQuake Funding, Ltd.  Third party wallet support for QuakeCoin tokens has been secured with both FireBlocks and Ledger; for hot and cold wallets respectively.

What are the benefits of QuakeCoin?
Holders of QuakeCoin may be eligible for LifeTime Membership to the BlockQuake Exchange (i.e. no trading fees on the first $100,000 USD in annual trading).  This includes crypto to crypto trading pairs as well as fiat to crypto trading pairs.  The BlockQuake Exchange is a Spot exchange that is working on obtaining regulatory licenses and approvals that will allow it to add Derivatives and Leveraging products in future years. Lifetime membership is limited to the first one million people who purchase QuakeCoin tokens on the QuakeCoin.com portal.

Additional benefits available to all QuakeCoin holders include trading fee discounts for higher frequency/higher volume traders exceeding $100,000 USD in annual trading.   Plus exclusive access to a future NFT Marketplace (i.e. planned subsidiary of BlockQuake Enterprises) where customers can discover digital masterpieces by established artists, animators & storytellers and access NFT airdrops.  Other benefits may include; airdrops of future projects, participation in future staking or yield opportunities, use for purchases in various retail and online outlets as well as being a payment option for tuition at Colleges/Universities, community members participating in voting on charitable initiatives to assist areas in crisis needing immediate assistance, and QuakeCoin tokens may be used to sponsor Esports events, awarded to Esports players (i.e. competition winners) and allow fans of certain streams to donate money to their favorite Esports players.

What is backing QuakeCoin tokens?
QuakeCoin tokens are utility based tokens that will be listed on the BlockQuake Exchange, whose price will be determined by market forces of supply and demand. There is no central company, government, private party or asset which is required to make the promise of providing a backstop value to QuakeCoin tokens at any time. 
Why would I want to buy QuakeCoin tokens?
As the BlockQuake ecosystem grows, QuakeCoin tokens may be in high demand based on the benefits and future plans mentioned above earlier.  It is expected a large supply of QuakeCoin tokens will be owned by holders who have Lifetime Membership; thereby reducing the amount of tokens changing hands, possibly leading to price appreciation.  Access to airdrops and participation in community matters are also attractive reasons to be holders of QuakeCoin tokens.  

Crypto Wallets & Wallet Addresses

What is a crypto wallet and how does it work?
A crypto wallet is a digital or virtual wallet used for storage of cryptocurrencies. Every crypto wallet has an alphanumeric wallet address. Like a home address, the wallet address is the direction that leads to your crypto wallet. 

Crypto wallets utilize a Public Key and a Private Key to secure the wallet. A Public Key functions like an account name or number to publicly identify a particular wallet. It is used to ensure you are the owner of the associated wallet address. 

A Private Key is the password needed to access the holdings in your crypto wallet. A Private Key can also be referred to as a “seed phrase” as it is made up of a set of words.  It is crucial to keep your private key secure. If you lose your private key, it is likely you will lose access to your wallet and the assets stored in the wallet.

The public key, private key and wallet address are linked together: the private key generates the public key which is then compressed and shortened to form the wallet address. 

Once a transaction is sent to a wallet address, it is encrypted with a public key and the corresponding private key is needed to decrypt it.

How do I get a crypto wallet?
For new traders, we recommend using Metamask, which is an ethereum based hot wallet that can be downloaded from the App Store, Google Play or by visiting https://metamask.io/. A hot wallet is a crypto wallet that is connected to the internet.

Upon opening MetaMask for the first time, you will be prompted to create a password. This password will be used to quickly log into your MetaMask, in case you’ve been inactive for a while on the browser or in the app. DO NOT confuse  this password with your private key, you can eventually change your password, but not your private key.

After clicking through the terms and services, you will be prompted for your 12 word private key. Record all the words presented to you, in order. We suggest writing them down vs storing them digitally where they could be discovered if you get hacked. No matter how you store it, keep your private key in a safe place. In a worst case scenario you will be able to retrieve your account back if you happen to lock yourself out, using your private key. Keep in mind, your private key is the only way to access your wallet address and any assets stored in your wallet.

Completing the signup process, you will receive your own personal ethereum wallet address; presented near the middle of the screen. This address is what you provide to us when you purchase QuakeCoin

What is the QUAKE wallet?
The QUAKE wallet resides on the BlockQuake Exchange and allows you to hold your QuakeCoin tokens safely and securely.  By having your QuakeCoin tokens on the BlockQuake Exchange, you are eligible for benefits mentioned earlier; like NFT airdrops.  
How can I move my QuakeCoin tokens from my custodial wallet (Metamask) to the QUAKE wallet on the BlockQuake Exchange?
In this instance, after the tokens have been distributed and you’re ready to move your tokens onto the BlockQuake Exchange, you must first generate a receiving address on the BlockQuake Exchange corresponding to the QUAKE Wallet that will receive your tokens.

You then open your Metamask wallet (where you have the tokens stored) and initiate a transfer to your QUAKE wallet on BlockQuake Exchange.

Open your MetaMask app or Chrome Extension and login. Reaching the home screen, you will then click on send; one of the three blue buttons. In the small box presented you will paste the receiving address from the BlockQuake Exchange. Double check to make sure the addresses are the same, and when YOU feel comfortable, confirm the transaction.  Reminder, there are NO reversals once the transaction is made. 

When will my QuakeCoin tokens purchased be distributed?
The QuakeCoin sale ends on September 30th,  2023 via the QuakeCoin.com portal.  Beginning on August 1st, 2023, a reconciliation of all purchases will be done allowing all QuakeCoin tokens to be minted and distributed to purchasers.  BlockQuake will distribute all tokens by August 31st, 2023 to purchasers wallet address provided when the transaction was completed.
