Educating and Empowering Latin America
through Blockchain Education
John Gotts IS the world’s foremost expert on Compliant Coins and co-wrote the most comprehensive memorandum to-date on the subject of compliant coins. Over the last four years he’s exchanged knowledge with many of the top attorneys in securities & cryptocurrencies, including firms like Cooley, K&L Gates, Pillsbury, Perkins Coie, Paul Hastings, and Hughes, Hubbard & Reed (HHR). He has conferred with brilliant legal minds, from a current deep bench of top retired US, DOJ & SEC Attorneys at HHR, to a retired SEC Commissioner, whom John considers a personal friend.
He’s had deep-dive discussions with pioneers of crypto like Nick Szabo who invented smart contracts (possibly is the real brains behind Ethereum) and in John’s opinion most certainly is THE “Satoshi”behind Bitcoin, Jed McCaleb of Ripple & Stellar, Ned Scott of Steemit, Charles Hoskinson of BitShares, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic & Cardano, Ryan Taylor of Dash, Sergey Sholom of MobileGo & GameCredits, Zvonimir (PeerChemist) of PeerCoin and so many other brilliant minds, who literally pioneered crypto, many of whom with which he started the first self-regulating body in crypto, which he then closed when he realized everything is already a security or commodity in the purview of the SEC, CFTC, FINRA & FINCEN. John is a whistleblower and has been actively helping the SEC/DOJ/FBI on important crypto cases involving bad characters who have and are hurting the Crypto Community.
The members of his advisory team and attorney have known him for a combined time of nearly 100 years.John is known best for his honesty, hard work and passion for entrepreneurial endeavors. John started his first business at age seven, shoveling snow, and has been a founder/CEO for nearly forty years of many successful businesses as well as many failures. John leads a team of nearly 70 volunteers at BitcoinLatina.

The BitcoinLatina Volunteers now represent nearly 70 people globally and their ranks grow daily.
Those volunteers do everything from logo and artwork, website design and functionality, development, translations, bounty hunters and managers, national ambassadors and more. This is the BitcoinLatina Family/Army and it is made of people who are honest and who care.
During the beta-coin phase (BCL) there were many on the team who had their own self-interests in mind and hurt the Community. Rather than moving forward with that group, John fired nearly all of them and started fresh, understanding that without trust there can be no Community. John made sure to cover all of the original coin holders with new BTCL coins on a cost-basis and for miners on total coins mined from the original Ethereum-forked beta coin.
This is the best team in crypto by many standards and is a poster child for Crypto 2.0 Compliant Coins.
Compliant Volunteer Cryptocurrency
A COMPLIANT COMMODITY COIN
BitcoinLatina cryptocurrency is earned by volunteers and then sold to people who support their efforts. The ultimate goal is to teach blockchain to the students of Latin America and as they learn they earn BTCL cryptocurrency. As they teach others they earn more. If they learn to build decentralized applications or to develop or maintain the BitcoinLatina Community’s EOS-based blockchain they can earn even more.
Ultimately, the goal is that those students and others globally will contribute time and effort, hardware, software, electricity, internet connectivity, time, expertise and a willingness to create a Latin American-based blockchain community that grows together. We want to see the development of blockchain education across Latin America and the BitcoinLatina cryptocurrency represents that effort.
BitcoinLatina will apply for a SEC-approved Regulation A+, security tokens (stokens) they may be listed for public trading. Until then the business side of the BitcoinLatina Foundation is managed by the BitcoinLatina Foundation of Nevada, a for-profit benefit company in the United States and all work is done by Volunteers who earn BTCL coins for their effort.
We will use KYC/AML (know your customer & anti-money laundering) practices and all users of the free exchange will have to prove their identity before they will be allowed to trade any coins on the free DAX88.com peer-to-peer exchange.
WHY DO I NEED TO REGISTER AND PROVE MY IDENTITY?
One of the things that has slowed the growth of retail clients entering the digital asset market has been anonymity.
We insist on knowing our clients and bad behavior is not allowed. We respect the authority of the Securities & Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, FINRA & FINCEN and always strive to stay dead-center of the bright yellow lines of compliance.
If we suspect there is bad behavior we will contact the proper authorities immediately. Cryptocurrency and stokens have a bright future and need no cloudy days resulting from bad characters.
By holding all members to this standard (KYC/AML will cost $2 for processing and is a one-time fee) we will do our best to provide a fair place for free trading of compliant digital assets. This will be done at the DAX88.com exchange on or before August 1, 2018 and before any coins are provided to buyers.
DO I HAVE TO BE ACCREDITED?
There are securities and there are commodities.
Securities represent equity in an organization, something that pays a dividend and other definitions. Those are to be traded amongst only accredited investors and often have time restrictions as to when it may be sold by the original buyer. If there is a JOBS Act-approved by the SEC digital security it would be allowed amongst both accredited and non-accredited buyers and sellers in the United States.
Currently the inventory we will allow for trading will include only commodity coins, including Bitcoin, Litecoin, BitcoinLatina, DAX88…, with more expected to be added in September. FOR THESE COINS YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE ACCREDITED TO TRADE IN THE UNITED STATES.
Invitation Only Until August 1, 2018

DAX88 does not make markets nor serve in any capacity as a broker/dealer. DAX88 does not provide financial advice nor does it provide trading or legal advice.

Purchase Volunteer Coins
YOU CAN PURCHASE USING BTC OR LTC
Latin American Blockchain Education
EOS-Based Blockchain Clone (when ready)
Maximum coins in circulation as of August 1:
Up to 250 million BTCL coins
Total Coin Valuation as of August 1:
Valuation will be determined by the total deposited in the EOS-style auction between July 4 and August 1, 2018 divided by the total 250 million available coins.
Maximum issuable BTCL coins:
250 million coins in Volunteer Coin Offering until September 22.
5 billion EOS-based coins may enter the market annually for one hundred years
Total issuable BTCL: 500 billion over 100 hundred years
Currently 250 million at minimum $0.01/coin ($2.5 million)
The Auction ending August 1, 2018 will divide what was deposited in BTC & LTC by the total 250 million available coins to set the fair value
(minimum $2.5 million at $0.01/coin).
25 billion coins will be provided to founding team members over 4 years:
2.5% of those coins may be issued the first year, 5% second year, 7.5% third year, 10% of original total forth year. No limitations on sales after the fourth year. Coins shall be distributed on a daily basis; the exception is accredited investors buying and holding coins until the end of the four year period set for each founder.
Delegates receive inflationary coins totaling 2,200 coins daily, 800,712 per year for providing the DAX88 decentralized network and confirming transactions.
To purchase coins you will need to register at DAX88.com and create a DAX88 Wallet for your BTCL deposit on August 1, 2018. As was done in the EOS coin offering, you may fill in the form and deposit up the the entire amount that is available, up to $2.5 million from July 4 until August 1, 2018 at 12am EST. At that point the total value of buy orders will be divided by the 250 million coins available to set the price, with a minimum price of $0.01/coin, or $2.5 million in BTC and/or LTC for 250 million coins, but if $10 million was to be deposited the price per coin would be $0.04/coin.
This is how EOS performed their ICO from June 1, 2017 to June 1, 2018.
On August 1, 2018 at 12am EST the auction will end and BTCL coins will be deposited to the buyer’s DAX88 wallets and they will begin trading, paired with BTC, LTC and other commodity coins that are offered at DAX88.
You may use Bitcoin or Litecoin to purchase BTCL.
