From T-shirts to Merchandise

How Carpathian Basin evolved from a T-Shirt printing company to an investment company with Merchandise

With the official incorporation of Carpathian Basin coming up it is also time to think about some nice Merchandise.

The first Carpathian-Basin merchandise.

It all started in 2018 with an idea to start a experience based t-shirt company called Carpathian Basin, as this is the location where I am located. I made some nice shirts inspired by travels, but found out soon enough that though I loved the name, the business model was not that great.

While I was figuring out that the business model was not the best, my crypto portfolio was increasing week by week and inspired by that the focus was moved to the #111Months challenge and the new profile of Carpathian Basin was found: Blockchain.Investment.Community.

The freshly created Merchandise features the current Blockchain pet-projects in my portfolio:


Carpathian Community Node for COTI

We are proud to run a node on the COTI blockchain and with the recent developments with COTI Viper and Blockchain Dollars, we are very bullish on COTI as a whole:

CITYUPTAKE is consistency. Great rewards and already going strong for almost 2 years:

In 2020 TD is growing, while rewards are very consistent

I would dare to say that CITYUPTAKE is the reason why the value of my crypto portfolio is green while building it in a continuous bear market (although lately COTI also played a role in this)


But also the Pi-token from the Crypto Universe deserves a spot on that Carpathian-Basin Merchandise. A consistent reward giving token with some fun interactions with the holders through weekly games.

Guaranteed rewards of 16,37% annualized returns or 17,76% if compounding the rewards

Pi-Token income distribution

Break down of the weekly income distribution

In light of transparency the income distribution of the Pi-token is openly shared.

Week of April 26, Pi-Token income distribution.

In the graphic above it can be seen that roughly 60% of the income received has been distributed to the holders of Pi-tokens directly.
Roughly 30% went to the reserve wallet, which is used to maintain enough buffer to be able to have holders return their Pi token for a 1:1 swap with TRX and to build a rewards payment reserve to establish trust.
Around 10% is used for maintaining and supporting the ECO-System of The Crypto Universe.

The Pi-token can be bought through Seedit in the Promille Telegram channel.

In that same Channel we now have a weekly and monthly gaming competition with Crypto prices to attract more traffic to the channel.
