America’s most famous business magazine Forbes included The Karatbars group around Dr. h. c. Herald Seiz to the rate of the “10 Blockchain Companies To Watch In 2019” on the 6th of June, 2019 in Stuttgart, Germany. The article written by Joresa Bount takes a “deeper look at the technologies, founders, and companies that are emerging in the industry (…) The teams of these innovative blockchain startups are global, cutting-edge, and typically include early blockchain adopters as founders.”
The abovementioned list involves ten companies aimed at making the blockchain “more accessible, prominent and mainstream. (…) Each offers something unique with the potential to disrupt traditional industries as well as gain support from legitimate entities,” she states.
“Based in Germany, Karatbars International GmbH is the developer of KaratGold Coin and a robust gold-linked ecosystem of cross-border blockchain solutions. Their latest product, the IMpulse K1 Smartphone, is the first phone using Voice Over Blockchain Protocol (VOPB). Currently, KaratGold allows consumers to trade or purchase gold on more than 500,000 acceptance points worldwide. With all of the recent talk about Bitcoin versus gold, this company provides the best of both worlds, “the article says.
Karatbars CEO and Founder Dr. h.c. Harald Seiz asserted that they were grateful to be included into the Forbes list, which presented their achievements and innovations such as the blockchain smartphone Impulse K1 in the vast variety of the blockchain world. Nowadays a lot of people are interested in cryptocurrencies and blockchain and are talking about it worldwide.

That is the goal which this company and the other nine companies are working on.

I only work for companies I believe in,” McAfee posted on his Twitter.
