To quote Satoshi Nakamoto: “A purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution.”
However, 10 years later, no cryptos are being used as a form of payment on a mass scale, and until they are, widespread adoption will remain a pipe dream.
Despite growing awareness surrounding the crypto and blockchain space, no group has tackled the issue of how to turn crypto into cryptocurrency by making it easily spendable. As any economist knows, the population will not adopt a new form of currency until it is practical, easy and, most importantly, can be used to acquire essential items/services.
Do not think Lambos and luxury yachts. Think basics like food and clothing — or paying your barber. While Mastercard, PayPal, etc. are attempting to solve this problem, their solution will almost certainly be centralized linked to fiat conversion.
It appears the industry has gotten lost in advancing technology, disrupting big industries, and lining their pockets (or ledger). But ARNO Token is to be different.
Founded by long-term crypto investor and advocate Artem S. Zhdanok along with a team of experienced legal, tech and marketing gurus.
To quote Artem S. Zhdanok: “Blockchain projects typically love to build solutions no one outside the industry understands. We have taken a bottom-up approach, making a product for everyday people. If you can turn on your phone, you can now buy or sell items with crypto.”
What is ARNO Token, and why is it special?
The technologies for producing carbon nanomaterials, in particular carbon nanotubes, intercalated graphite and graphene structures, developed and implemented for industrial use by our team over the past few years, allow us to produce additives of various types for various fields of application.
This allows our team of scientists, engineers and technologists to use our proprietary additives to store energy, improve efficiency, increase the capacity and life of our batteries, and more.
Manufacturers of electronic products, hybrid vehicles and power systems are also benefiting from our technical practice, which allows them to create more flexible and high-performance offerings for their end users. For the battery and energy market, carbon nanotubes, intercalated graphite and graphene’s serve:
- Conductive components of battery electrodes;
- Rheology modifiers for pastes and slurries used in preparation of battery electrodes;
- Structural and porosity modifiers for battery electrodes;
- Capacitors for charge storage.
How does it works?
The solution we offer based on carbon nanomaterials affects the structural characteristics of the active mass of the electrode.
If our carbon-based materials has been added to the Negative & Positive Active Material (NAM & PAM) during paste preparation in a variety of forms including MWNT and exfoliated graphite based graphene structures, when incorporated at 0.1-0,8% w.r.t. lead oxide, carbon increases the charge acceptance of a battery by more than 200% but at the cost of paste rheology and paste density. Reductions in paste density directly lead to increased active material adhesion to the grids, increased battery capacity with no requires of higher active material masses to reach specification, and sufficient cold-cranking performance.
New paste processing machinery is often required to overcome some of the issues brought on by high carbon loading. Our proposed carbon-based materials are easily incorporated into battery pastes as a concentrated, pourable fluid or paste. The fluid or paste replaces a portion of the water used during the paste mixing process, requiring no alteration to existing industrial production lines. When combined with traditional paste ingredients (lead oxide, expander, fiber, water, and acid) at 0.36% w.r.t lead, our new advanced materials offer prolonged increases in charge acceptance and more efficient battery usage with no detrimental effect to paste rheology or Reserve Capacity (RC), and an augmented Cold-Cranking Ability (CCA).
A feasible route to mass adoption? Maybe
With a campaign-style home page and use of mostly layman’s terms, the ARNO team seems to be speaking to the masses.
Now, if your thinking: But it’s not properly decentralized… please give them a break. They have to start somewhere. And the roadmap states the company plans to develop a nano materials project. ARNO is definitely thinking the right way.
All-in-all, it may be the early days, and the mission is a mammoth, but we commend what it’s doing and we will be watching closely to see how this unfolds.
Well done ARNO team, we wish you all the success! To follow ARNO, check out the links below.
