  • Necessary tech updates of servers could cause dysfunction of older servers thus affecting the whole ecosystem;
  • A possibility of hackers attacks;

Description of the project Bubbletone ICO

Bubbletone is a block chain and an ecosystem that gives an opportunity to phone users, mobile network operators and service providers to have a direct interaction.

The operators and the users can have a direct connection in this marketplace. With the help of this innovative platform, the travelers will become local customers for any operator in any foreign country they are travelling to. There is no need to replace the SIM card and the basic number of the customer will remain unchanged.
