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:

COTI:

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

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

Size of the TD (in $TRX) and the weekly rewards in 2019
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)

Pi-token

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.

Community engagement

Part of the #111Months challenge defines community engagement. The idea is to set up an incubation project for new business once Carpathian Basin Ltd is up and running.

Awareness about technology, crypto and enterpreneurship at future adults is also very important, that is why the opportunity to speak at Career day at the local secondary school was great.

First slide of the career day presentation

I prepared a presentation highlighting besides the original topic:

  • Investing;
  • State of Technology;
  • Crypto currencies.

In the hope that these young adults will be on the receiving part of the incubation project in a couple of years from now.

Fast Bullits Hungary Rally

Planning to enter the Fast Bullits Rally Hungary

Today I had a chat with my Tennis trainer while playing. He is the organizer of the first Fast Bullits Rally in Hungary, which is loosely inspired by the Burt Reynolds movie.

The idea is to have a three day Rally through Hungary, driving from city to city while having fun as well. One night the intention is to stay at a go-kart hotel in Kecskemét. This is a hotel with a private go-kart track. Another destination for this rally will be the Hungaro-ring, which is where the Hungarian Formula 1 race is driven every year at the end of July.

The date for this rally is set for somewhere late August in 2020 and the amount of participating cars will be capped at a number of 100.

Further details are still in preparation. But this guy has got my blood pumping. This is a great opportunity to get visibility for all the brands and companies I am supporting. Front and back sponsoring of the car is limited to the logo of the Fast Bullets Hungary rally. But the sides of the car are still open for sponsoring.

I could imagine some of the following logo’s on the side of the car I will be driving through this rally:

A nice opportunity to bring name and fame to the brands which are the chosen ones to ensure my possible early retirement from the corporate world.

But first to find a car!
