BlockNum(TM) uses a token engine which transports them over the Public Switched Telephone Network. Using BlockNum, United Blockchain will be able to provide any company the capability to operate a cryptotoken-based business using smart contracts and blockchains.

UnitedCorp believes that this is the future for financial and service transactions between parties and that most if not all businesses operations and personal transactions will eventually occur via some form of cryptotoken using Smart Contracts on a decentralized blockchain environment. BlockNum(TM) is designed for easy implementation within existing company financial processes.

United Blockchain will focus initially on telecom and technology companies that wish to transport their Smart Contract tokens and currencies over the PSTN for instant global reach. The first such project will be with TNW, a Canadian based carrier where United Blockchain will transform TNW’s mobile, fixed and Internet services as well as its cloud based services voice and data service exclusively to a token-based ecosystem using the GIGA transport token.

When fully implemented all service payments for mobile, residential Internet, voice, private networks as well as social media monetization will be manageable and rendered through a single transport token under BlockNum(TM).

The entire United Blockchain back end is expected to be managed by smart contracts by the end of Q2 coinciding with the production release of BlockNum, 2018, improving scalability and efficiency of the company as the PSTN by its very nature is universal and instantly scalable as BlockNum allows the creation of personal wallets based on phone numbers.

″Cryptographically-based distributed ledger currencies such as Bitcoin and Smart Contract-based networks such as Ethereum will provide amazing improvement in our lives, but simply are not sustainable or scalable as standalone technologies,” stated Benoit Laliberte, UnitedCorp’s President. “We believe that BlockNum will eventually permit anyone to have immediate and global access to both fiat and crypto currencies or Smart Contract-based tokens through the use of the most basic and widely available network – their phone numbers.’’

UnitedCorp recently completed an initial round of private placement funding and is currently working on a second round that is planned for early in the new year.
