The most famous American business magazine Forbes included the Karatbars group around Dr. h.c. Harald Seiz into its recent rate of the “10 Blockchain Companies To Watch In 2019“. – Stuttgart, June 06, 2019. Written by Joresa Bount, the article tells about “the technologies, founders, and companies that are emerging in the industry (…) The teams of these innovative blockchain startups are global, cutting-edge and typically include early blockchain adopters as founders.”

 The abovementioned list introduces 10 companies aimed at making the blockchain “more accessible, prominent and mainstream. (…) Each offers something unique with the potential to disrupt traditional industries as well as gain support from legitimate entities,” Bount says.

In fact, it says about the company: “Based in Germany, Karatbars International GmbH is the developer of KaratGold Coin and a robust gold-linked ecosystem of cross-border blockchain solutions. Their latest product, the IMpulse K1 Smartphone, is the first phone using Voice Over Blockchain Protocol (VOPB). Currently, KaratGold allows consumers to trade or purchase gold on more than 500,000 acceptance points. With all of the recent talk about Bitcoin versus gold, this company provides the best of both worlds.“

Karatbars CEO and Founder, Dr. h.c. Harald Seiz, states that “the Forbes contribution and inclusion in such a list is a great honor for us. The article shows the full diversity of the blockchain universe – and we are proud to be listed in this series due to our two crypto-currency innovations, including a link to gold, and the blockchain smartphone IMpulse K1.” “Cryptocurrencies and blockchain are on everyone’s lips. But cryptocurrencies are not only relevant as an investment object, the underlying blockchain can revolutionize all our workflows and business processes – even outside of finance. That’s what we and the other nine companies exposed by Forbes are working on every day,” he continues.

“In order to strengthen our marketing activities in this area, we have now entered into a cooperation with the most well-known crypto-influencer John McAfee. Hardly anyone else covers the market as well – and critically – as he does and so we are pleased about the collaboration on our cryptocurrency KaratGold Coin (KBC),” Seiz tells. “Warning: I work with this company. However, KBC coin is linked to gold in a way that downside is limited, while the upside is unlimited. (…) For me, it is simply a way to protect against the crypto markets’ volatility. I only work for companies I believe in,” McAfee shared on his Twitter.
