GitLab CEO Supports Universal Income Coin and BNB Boost TechRadar


Global Income Coin, a non-profit crypto company, has secured $2 million to launch a new cryptocurrency that aims to provide a universal basic income of $1 a day to everyone in the world.

The funding comes from a personal donation from Sid Sijbrandij (pictured), co-founder and CEO of GitLab, and will be used to help fund operations, expand the team, and perform R&D.

Later this year, Global Income Coin plans to launch a new cryptocurrency, GLO, an alternative to fiat currencies such as the dollar, euro, and yen. Global Income Coin will encourage consumers and businesses to use GLO for payments. The more GLO is used as currency, the more UBI it generates.

“Global wealth levels suggest we should be able to eradicate poverty if we work together. Global Income Coin can be a major systemic part of the solution,” said CEO Jeffrey Milewski, an academic specializing in economics, finance, and blockchain.

“Blockchain technology can enable a fairer system of wealth distribution, enabling greater income equality globally. In the current monetary system, governments capture all the benefits of central bank money creation.

“We envision moving to a system where people directly reap the fruits of economic growth and regardless of their nationality.”

Sijbrandij said: “Earning opportunities are very different from one country to another, which contributes to perpetuating poverty in the world. It is a moral imperative to treat everyone well.

The non-profit organization is currently being incorporated as the Global Income Coin Foundation in Zug, Switzerland. Its operations rely entirely on philanthropic donations.

NFT SoundMint platform to “reinvent the way music is created”

A generative platform for music NFTs has raised $1.7 million in seed funding.

SoundMint claims to reinvent the process of creating a new form of art and music by bringing innovation to the way people interpret music collectibles on the Web3, where the majority of the sale goes to the artist.

His NFTs are musical compositions derived from stems, with varying acoustic properties, algorithmically combined to create a set of unique musical works of art. As a new form of generative music, NFTs are associated with visual elements, each as variable as the music itself.

By owning a SoundMint collectible, the company says fans can support artists by investing in their work today and have a voice in what’s created in the future.

Funds will be used to create an NFT marketplace that will allow artists to create their own music NFTs as well as interact with collectors and other creatives, create a dashboard for fans with NFTs to view exclusive content artists and release a token, buyout program and ecosystem fund.

SoundMint’s inaugural drop between musical artist Kloud and visual artist Hooker sold 5,000 copies worth $2.5 million.
