Alongside a few thousand other industry leaders gathered in San Juan this week, a new and noteworthy project made an impressive introduction to the blockchain community during Restart Week in Puerto Rico.

NYNJA is a new global communications platform that integrates messaging features for consumer and enterprise users with an on-demand digital services marketplace powered by its own NYNJACoin token.

The company’s three co-founders used the blockchain confab as an opportunity to commemorate its alpha milestone by participating in a series of blockchain events in San Juan, Puerto Rico. From its Open Unity talk at d10e, to private contributor meetings during Blockchain Unbound and a preview of the alpha version of its app at CoinAgenda, NYNJA was everywhere at Restart Week in Puerto Rico. The company also hosted a VIP reception at the Condado Vanderbilt, that included an appearance by actor and producer Wesley Snipes. Though not an official representative of NYNJA, his interest in blockchain technology and his entrepreneurial and entertainment endeavours are said to align neatly with those of NYNJA’s.

NYNJA is the first global communications platform to unify a suite of voice, text and visual messaging services with robust business management and e-commerce features, all powered by the NYNJACoin financial ecosystem and cryptocurrency. Under development since Q1 2017, NYNJA will soon be available in beta version.

As NYNJA co-founder and chief strategist Marshall Taplits explained, “people and organizations around the world come together billions of times a day to exchange ideas and engage in commerce across borders, but current systems are laden with friction and barriers to commerce and communication and stuck operating through traditional intermediaries such as banks and telecom providers.”

He went on to say “our experienced global technical team is building upon distributed ledger technology to unify commerce, communications, and governance in a single platform. With blockchain as our foundation, we believe we can help individuals and organizations operate in what we refer to as ‘Open Unity,’ an emerging socio-economic reality where considerations of security, privacy, agency, efficiency, and reliability are not trade-offs but rather co-exist as integral elements of the system.”

The NYNJA marketplace allows users to buy and sell goods and services globally using NYNJACoin, the ERC20 standard token of NYNJA’s integrated financial ecosystem. With NYNJACoin, users can also access exclusive groups and pay for proprietary in-group content such as licensed digital media assets or timed consultations with experts.

Users can also earn NYNJACoin for viewing ads and sharing branded material like sticker-packs or coupons. Each account can be segmented according to users’ social, consumer and business lives, and comes with a secure Ethereum wallet enabling users to transact freely within the platform for fast international payment transfers without the need for costly external payment providers.

Completely scalable and open, the NYNJA platform will enable developers to build value-add applications within NYNJA as well as extend NYNJA’s functionality into their own platforms via an open API and SDK. NYNJA will also create an accelerator program to encourage developer interest in the platform through consulting, technical assistance and funding.

In addition to comprehensive communication services, NYNJA incorporates a scheduled messaging feature and automatic translation across 98 languages. NYNJA also lets users make free Internet calls, make conference calls and transfer calls to any phone. The architecture enables blockchain features such as secure IPFS integration for file storage and features a user-friendly, intuitive interface facilitated by NYNJA’s patent-pending concentric wheel navigation system which enables quick and easy navigation of the app using only one hand regardless of screen size.

“We’re here in Puerto Rico, a hotbed for crypto innovation, to demonstrate the vitality of NYNJA through special presentations of our alpha version at Blockchain Unbound, d10e, and CoinAgenda Caribbean,” said NYNJA co-founder and president Alejandro Gramont. “NYNJA is truly set apart from other messaging services not only because it is fully functional for both personal and business use, but because it incorporates a blockchain-enabled, fully integrated, global marketplace and payments system to verify commercial transactions and provide secure communications.”

At launch, NYNJA will be available on Android, iOS, and Web with the native development of Mac, Linux and Windows versions to follow. For more information about NYNJA Group Limited, please visit To learn more about the NYNJACoin ICO at
