Welcome to the first edition of the Expanse Newsletter for 2018. This publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of each month to share happenings within our community. Keep in mind that breaking news can come at any time, but the Expanse Newsletter is a great overview of progress, news, and our current focus.



The main announcement for this Newsletter is that CryptoBridge DEX has agreed to list Tokenlab™ (LAB) on their exchange in February. This is huge news for those of us who have been waiting. The agreement also specifies that they will list Expanse (EXP), as well as future tokens launched on the Tokenlab ICO platform. In return, we will help them gain more attention and popularity with our large community of traders and investors that follow Expanse.

As soon as we have the exact date in February from CryptoBridge, we will share it with you all, but it is officially on the way. We will also continue reaching out to centralized exchanges to add Tokenlab, but currently, most are just overwhelmed with demand. That is another reason a scalable decentralized exchange like CryptoBridge has real potential. There is growing demand for a solution like this. Fact is, scalable decentralized exchanges are the future, and this new partnership is a big step in that direction for Expanse and Tokenlab.


In other news, we have also signed a deal with Locopixel to have them assist with some development work. Locopixel is a company of approximately 50 developers. Chris and the Expanse dev team occasionally need help with various work that takes a great deal of time, so Locopixel is being brought on board to assist. We have already run a test project with them to see how they would perform, and they excelled, delivering the test project as needed, on time, and correctly. So we are expanding the relationship beyond just testing and trials to actually bringing them on board to help with various work that we can outsource to them.

This is simply to streamline and speed up the development of the Expanse project in a very time-efficient and cost-effective manner. So this is great news that will help Expanse scale and grow with demand, as development needs naturally become greater over time as Expanse grows.




We are proud to announce that Dropd will be our first Tokenlab client ICO launched in February. You can read the whitepaper here: https://www.dropd.co/

Dropd will be a music platform unlike any other in existence today—a place where people of all ages and countries go to listen to their favorite artists, discover new artists and connect with each other.  The platform is the place where good music, whether from a famous artist or a complete unknown, can rise to the top and be monetized instantly. All users will be able to participate in the success of artists with the market determining who is popular, not huge corporations. By the time this project is complete, the music industry will be changed forever.

Vin Foresta, founder and CEO of IJI, Inc. and Dropd architect/developer, describes that his vision “will include all these things and much more. Dropd will be orders of magnitude greater than an ordinary music app; it will be revolutionary. By the time this project is complete, the music industry will be changed forever,” he said.

Dropd’s patent-pending technology uses the blockchain to decentralize an antiquated business model. The music industry is perhaps one of the best examples of an industry that stands to be drastically altered by blockchain technology. The decentralization and socialization of the music industry have the potential to create the opportunity of a lifetime for many, as well as massive disruption to the status quo. Dropd is positioning itself as the driving force that will lead music into the blockchain age.

Given the evolving regulatory environment in the U.S., Dropd’s ICO will exclude U.S. citizens’ participation. The technology for the Dropd ICO site will have IP blocking in place for US residents and a secondary check that forces users to declare they are not a resident of the U.S. The ICO countdown will begin soon. Watch for a definitive timeline to be published later this week.

Dropd is a platform that is well into the development cycle. It is not just a concept; it is a viable technology with public launch projected in the third quarter of 2018. Watch for the promotional buildup and ICO site listings to begin over the next few weeks. The Expanse and Tokenlab teams could not be more excited about the Dropd project!



QuikNode is in the process for setting up easy to set up and scale Expanse Nodes. This will make it much easier to deploy Expanse nodes. The more nodes, the more of a decentralized Expanse. So a big thanks to QuikNode for helping out Expanse.

“QuikNode is a project to help blockchain ecosystems scale by providing accessible core infrastructure. Our latest endeavor, still under wraps, takes aim at applications which require unlimited scale and globally high performance. We are excited to have the support of Expanse; together we will help advance blockchain technology, adoption, and drive innovation.”




Welcome to the twenty-fourth edition of the Expanse Newsletter for 2017. This publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of each month to share happenings within our community. Keep in mind that breaking news can come at any time, but the Expanse Newsletter is a great overview of progress, news, and our current focus.



Right now we are setting up a partnership with the decentralized exchange, Cryptobridge, https://crypto-bridge.org/ This partnership will not only be for Expanse and Tokenlab™, but for future projects launched on Tokenlab. We will help the exchange gain attention and bring in liquidity, while having the freedom to add Tokenlab (LAB) and other projects launched on the platform, in return. This is close to a done deal, and we are working out the final details.  (Cryptobridge management has granted us permission to share this news.) This is looking like it will be a great, mutually-beneficial relationship: Helping Tokenlab and our clients by having a guaranteed exchange, and in turn, helping Cryptobridge, a very well-designed, decentralized exchange, gain the attention, volume, and liquidity they seek.


We are also in negotiations to purchase a Chinese Exchange. We have been marketing and working over the last year with our Chinese ambassador from this exchange. Both teams are now weighing this option. As we have continued to deepen this relationship, this is a real possibility and not just hype. Buying some Chinese exchange does not mean buying some exchange in China that opens up and tries to take on Chinese regulators. Instead,  we are on track to buy the very valuable, closed source code and then relaunching and rebranding the centralized exchange elsewhere outside of China’s control. If this happens, it would be done with the Expanse team and with a team from China working together. This is a very exciting option but will take time and is still in process. In short, we should have the decentralized exchange coming soon, and the possibility of a traditional centralized exchange for Expanse, Tokenlab, and many other cryptos, launching later.



We have plans for Expanse meetups and an exciting new ambassador program. Meeting people in person directly and speaking to them with presentations, is a very powerful way to get people interested in the project. The timing for launching these new initiatives will be after the new Expanse website is complete, as we need a dynamic site that can quickly be updated and adapt to all the new information that is always coming in. So the upcoming website revamp is closely connected to the plan to have meetups around the world.

We have seen some interest from Africa recently, and some Expanse community members who are setting up a Meetup in Africa shared this flyer with us. Additionally, we have a very strong presence in South America due to partnerships, and we plan on lots of marketing and meetups with presentations in South America. Omar Alvarez, CEO of our Guatemala-based partner Gameboard, is already planning presentations and speaking events about Expanse down there, so we anticipate growth in South America with some related key events to come in the future.

Although the current Expanse.tech™ website has served us well, the design is not dynamic making updating less efficient. We also believe it is important to stand out and not be like all the other boring crypto websites that blend together. People tend to lose attention if they are all alike after you have seen enough of them. As Expanse has unique selling points, we plan to build a much more creative and dynamic website—one that will have a powerful impact for visitors, with a design that is easy to update given the new and constantly changing information generated by the Expanse.tech™ project.

We know this is a concern for the community. We hear you, and this is a key focus for the team. We understand how vital this is, and since there is so much information and news happening now, the current site is really not designed well enough to handle modifications as it should. Once the new site is launched, the revamped website will also have a much more powerful impact when people first try to learn about Expanse, rather than just a nice website that appears like many others that people might just browse and forget. This new website, in contrast, will be designed to be unforgettable, so we can stand out from the crowd and be noticed.



Axia has helped set up some big interviews with major press, so now we are just waiting to see when they run those stories, and of course, this is ongoing and more interviews are in the process of being negotiated and pitched to the press. So far, six interviews have taken place. When these articles are published they will be in major news publications and give instant mainstream attention to Expanse. So stay tuned, as articles could come out at any moment now.

Now that crypto is going more mainstream, Christopher Franko is being pitched and sought out as an industry expert to provide opinions and to educate consumers by major publications, including Forbes, The New York Times and Fortune Magazine. This obviously is a time-consuming process, but building a brand to get global attention is not a trivial undertaking. Besides, we just need one major story to take off, and as six of the interviews are already done, any one of them could be published at any moment.

If or when they are, we will inform the community and share at once. We are also keeping a close eye on the metrics and evaluating how this is going, but in general, we are very excited about the potential and just waiting for our moment to shine.

DropD, one of the clients for Tokenlab, has started their private sale. Initially, they will only be accepting Ethereum but will add other Tokens and cryptocurrencies at a later date. To participate, access their white paper or find out more about the DropD crowd sale, please check out the link below:




Binance is a new exchange that has quickly grown in popularity. Binance Coin is a token the exchange uses to offer trading discounts for users. Adding BNB to Tokenlab does not mean Tokenlab or Expanse will be on Binance, but we are working on getting Expanse added to the list for voting in the future (and we will later for Tokenlab).

For Expanse or Tokenlab to be added to Binance itself, the team and community will need to work together. However, adding BNB to Tokenlab is an important step that can help us move in that direction. So we are now offering (BNB) as one of the options for Tokenlab, and this should increase attention from the Binance exchange and community as it creates another use case for the BNB Token.



As announced previously we have hired Axia Public Relations to help increase the popularity of the Expanse brand to the general public. All good things take time, but there has been a great deal of progress with Axia. The first press release we issued with Axia, “Borderless Corp., Inc. to Launch Expanse DAO” was viewed by far more people than our previous press releases, so that was a good start. We have also had meetings with Axia discussing the situation and how we can gain mainstream attention.

After those meetings, they later came back with three different concepts for pitching Expanse and Tokenlab and how to get lots of attention from the press. These are very clever ideas for getting attention, so we have green-lighted the proposals and they are being shared out to the press now. If all goes well, Expanse and Tokenlab could end up in major publications and with lots of attention. So we will continue to work with Axia and monitor how the brand grows over the coming months, as we believe they have the talent and connections to help Expanse grow and get the attention we deserve.
