Bravo was created in 2014 by Maria Luna and Dr. Hector Rodriguez, when they are in a situation where they have to pay someone, but they don't have the money to do it. "We traveled through southern Utah and did not have cash to tip our guides, then we realized that there must be a way to pay someone digitally for their services, without the need to share personal information or pay for information only. So Bravo was born," said Dr. Rodriguez.
The research was carried out which is for user-focused development. The application was successfully launched at TeckCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco in 2015. On this occasion he received an audience award. The Bravo app quickly spread outside Phoenix, where the company is located, and has now reached more than 1,000 cities in the United States with thousands of small businesses, including parking services, cafes and micro sellers using this application to easily accept mobile payments.
The company also works with charitable organizations such as the Phoenix Children's Hospital, Alice Cooper Solid Rock Foundation, One Vision One World, and many others to make it easier for them to receive donations. After proof of a successful concept where millions of dollars in fiat (USD) are processed using iOS and Android applications, now Bravo appears as the next generation platform supported by blockchain.
Bravo's creation target is to create a trusted, easy to use, and anonymous cellular payment platform for a new generation of users who value privacy, security and anonymity with easier and smoother use. There are many reasonable market concerns about the lack of online and cellular privacy and security in the financial world. In fact, a recent study revealed that 71% of Americans are most concerned about online privacy when they access their financial data.
The shortage of this traditional banking system is broken by the presence of a blockchain-based cryptocurrency, which allows people to personally and safely transact with currencies that maintain value without central authority that controls supply and circulation.
However, this technology still has deficiencies, namely the quality needed to attract mass consumers and easy to use via mobile devices. Bravo BVO comes with a solution to make payments more anonymously, cheaper, worldwide and, most importantly, speed up transaction time, giving users complete control over transactions.
Therefore, Bravo is present in the ranks of new technologies in the world of crypto breaking the slow blockchain adoption paradigm with a human-centric user interface that is proven on a strong blockchain infrastructure.
Bravo creates a mobile payment platform that is supported by blockchain that addresses technological challenges with today's micropayments market while increasing its usability and adoption for both consumers and businesses.
Having proven successful with cellular fiat transactions, the Bravo team developed a blockchain platform to run cellular payment applications and support increased anonymity and security, improved registration and orientation of cryptocurrency wallets, and a simple PIN access code that improves usability.
With the Bravo application, there is no need for long public or private keys or third parties or third party funds. Users have a simple but safe password recovery protocol to ensure full control and access to their tokens and funds. bravo runs on the blockchain platform created by its engineering team to optimize security, integrity and functionality.
Users have complete control over privacy, funds, and payments that are run in seconds without an intermediary bank or third party blockchain platform and without hidden fees. bravo is also designed to integrate with, and drive other applications.
The blockchanin system at Bravo is the culmination of years of research, user feedback, design and engineering. Blockchain technology will enable Bravo to scale at a faster rate and accommodate a much larger user base. This not only increases user anonymity and transaction transparency, but also expands the implementation and reach by expanding the Bravo ecosystem globally with a smooth and consistent platform.
Bravo embodies a balanced combination of blockchain technology, user experience and successful business models that are ready for large-scale adoption. With the ability to process payments globally, Bravo is well positioned to build a cryptocurrency platform with real use cases that actually serve the mass market.
Bravo is creating an innovative hybrid blockchain technology that consists of a public and private blockchain. The public blockchain is based on the Federated Byzantine Agreement (FBA) consensus algorithm while Bravo private, Incognito blockchain is based on an anonymizing Proof-of-Stake algorithm. The Bravo blockchain integrates these two technologies together, which allows them to interoperate seamlessly, and gives the end-users control over transaction speed, privacy and cost.
Federated Byzantine Agreement
The Federated Byzantine Agreement (FBA) consensus algorithm requires understanding its predecessor, the traditional Byzantine agreement. The Byzantine agreement ensures consensus even if you have some misbehaving members in your network. This has two advantages. First, consensus can be fast and efficient. Second, trust is entirely decoupled from resource ownership. This means that a small vendor has as much power as a wealthy, large organization which helps keep them both honest. On the downside, all parties must agree on the exact list of participants. Generally, membership in Byzantine agreement systems is set by a central authority or closed negotiation.
Send payments with the power of blockchain
Bravo Pay continues to bring financial empowerment to a new generation that values simplicity, privacy and transparency with a payment solution, tailored for the mass adoption of crypto-payments!
Starting in early 2017 BRAVO began it's evolution to Blockchain. Join our whitelist to learn more about the upcoming token. Bravo is looking to improve the way micropayments like tipping and paying for goods are done by offering increased security and privacy, faster speeds, and reducing costs. To help expand their global reach while providing a better solution, Bravo will be upgrading their existing platform into a blockchain infrastructure. The Bravo ecosystem will consist of an interaction between BVO and fiat on the same app while completing transactions on the Bravo blockchain.
The BVO coin is the official network currency and will be integrated into the Bravo app wallet. BVO is a utility token that is decentralized in control and will complete high demand transactions faster and at a fraction of the cost. The BVO token can easily be converted into BVO-P for private transactions sent over the Bravo network. BRAVO (BVO) will establish itself globally for commercial use through the Bravo app that already has a user base in the thousands. What drives the BVO token and ultimately the liquidity, is BRAVO’s and BVO real use case.
Bravo tokens on sale during the ICO are ERC20 tokens, BVO-ERC. After the ICO there will be a token swap where BVO-ERC tokens will be exchanged for BVO tokens, and then burned. There will be a total supply of 1 billion BVO tokens. The BVO token will be priced at $0.10 for the public ICO sale.
