Why I Am Holding WaltonChain (WTC)

I would like to share some insight on why I am holding Walton (WTC).. Remember this is just my personal opinion and you should always do your own research and come up with your own assessment before investing.
When it comes to investing, one of the primary things I look for is growth potential. And when it comes to Waltonchain, I feel like the potential for growth is so extreme that it could be unprecedented. Of course I can't say for certain Waltonchain will make investors wealthy. But what I will say is Waltonchain is no stranger to the rapidly growing RFID technology, nor the market it resides in.
About Waltonchain
Everyone knows what a UPC code (bar code) is.. it stores the price and helps retail stores keep track of inventory levels. The advancement of this technology is what brought us RFID tags.. Below are the benefits RFID has over the traditional UPC bar code.
What Waltonchain has done is taken the RFID technology to the next level by combining it with blockchain technology.. (See below)
Technical advantages of Waltonchain RFID tags.
Example of RFID in the real world
Rather than simply identifying an item as a box of Cheerios (as bar codes do), an RFID chip can uniquely identify a particular box of Cheerios and enable it to be tracked all the way through the sales chain, from the warehouse to a consumer’s shopping cart. This level of uniqueness in tracking can, for example, aid in the removal of expired merchandise from store shelves or assist in locating items designated as part of a product recall. - Snopes
Waltonchain's 4-phase development plan.
Walton team has formulated a 4-phase development plan, starting from infrastructure platform establishment to gradually incorporating retail, logistics and product manufacturing, and to finally achieving the full coverage of business ecosystem.
Basically Walton works with retail, logistics, and product manufacturing to improve efficiency on all fronts. The entire process from manufacturing all the way to delivery can be assisted and improved with Waltonchain. Waltonchain achieves this by developing state of the art tamper-resistant RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips with storage and encryption capabilities. Waltonchains RFID chips can be applied to any tangible item allowing traceability and improved security throughout its journey.
Phase 1
The team has developed the clothing system integration scheme based on RFID. The system has been implemented in Tries, SMEN and Kaltendin. The condition of widely application and promotion has been met. The team starts to research and develop the RFID beacon chip with proprietary intellectual property rights.
Phase 2
The RFID chips will be mass-produced and used in clothing, retail and logistics. This includes store pickup, pricing, order placing, packing and storage, sorting and distribution, store management, dispatching, customer signature, customer assessment and feedback.
Phase 3
Manufacturers will achieve traceable intelligent packaging. The entire processes will be covered, including material purchasing, production, assembly operation, packaging and inventory management. The quality of the materials can be verified and tracked to the source easily. Counterfeit goods can be eliminated to ensure customer interests.
Phase 4
In the future, all assets can be registered in Waltonchain and problems in asset ownership and traceability will be resolved.
Waltonchain isn't just an idea or some dream, it's becoming a reality. Product testing with manufacturers, warehouses and retail stores is already underway. Even though Waltonchain has a long road ahead (Roadmap), I believe there will be a growing demand not just for RFID technology, but specifically for Waltonchains RFID technology.
Let's take a look at some Q&A's collected from AMA's and FAQ.
How much money has gone into R&D so far? Will we see pictures of the hardware anytime soon?
So far between Silicon, Dr. Kim's Lab, and Waltonchain China and Waltonchain Korea, we have approximately spent $8million dollars in R&D alone. Walton chain RFID system prototype has been fabricated and the photos will be shown next month.
Does the Walton team currently hold, or have plans to file for, any patents that directly related to the RFID tag IC it has plans to produce?
Walton team has written and submitted at least four RFID-related patents. our senior advisor Dr. Kim owns 10s of patents, our affiliate Silicon owns many patents as well. (As you can see form CEO Mo Bing’s introduction video). All of the above patents should be and will be readily available for our use to product Waltonchain’s IP advantages over our potential competitors.
If at some point in the future other companies want to use RFID chips using technology created by WaltonChain, will they pay royalties to WaltonChain for technology patented by WaltonChain members?
Yes.
What would be an example or scenario, of a RFID chip applying to the average person daily life? Maybe even if they are not aware of their tech surroundings
Many, e.g. supermarket merchandise inventory, RFID anti-theft system of clothing store and so on. You can pretty much think that we would almost work in any scenario with tangible products. But our focus is firstly to break through the clothing industry right now. Think about Walmart or Target and Costco, and then think about their suppliers, the businesses that supply to these large retailers. They can all be our clients.
Have you tested your RFID tech with any company outside of the clothing industry?
Yes, we also test in retail stores and warehouses.
Why choose the application of garment industry as the breakthrough point in Phase 1.0 of this project?
*The RFID tag has achieved the management of item level in the application of garment industry. Hence, the number of usage is enormous. Large amounts of experimental data can be obtained easily in the development and early application of the chip, as a result of which the chip and system technologies will mature quickly ;
*Many core members of the team have years of industry experience in the field of garment, and they are also familiar with the garment industry, the application of RFID intelligent system, and the promotion of software informationization products and other areas. With abundant resources of customer channels, the upfront cost of customer development is low. Therefore, it is possible to enter the market rapidly and to build up customer base in early days.
Does WaltonChain has its own blockchain?
Waltonchain is a self-developed public blockchain, and the wallet is expected to be online at the end of October. For now, WTC is an ERC20 token but when the Genesis block has been mined the token based on Ethereum will be replaced by the actual Walton Coin with the exchange rate of 1:1.
How much testing has been done in real companies who have opted for integration of WTC to see if it will be long term beneficial?
Up to now, many companies such as Tries, Joeone, SMEN in the apparel industry, Kehua, Lipson plastic in the manufacturing industry and Xiangyu group in the warehouse industry have applied for our WTC & RFID integration system. What is impressive is that all of them have benefited a lot by integrating our system! Compared to before integration, their yield rate has increased by 1.2%, the stock turnover increased by 5.8%, the distribution efficiency has improved by almost 100%, and the inventory efficiency almost tripled in their stores.
For customer information please refer to list below:
With the government subsidizing the project, are you able to provide any other insight into the involvement of the government (including other countries)?
Quanzhou Silicon, the technology backup of WTC in China and a subsidiary of the Silicon Group, has been awarded the “second-class international qualification”, and has received project subsidies from the local government of Quanzhou City, Fujian province. Another subsidiary of the Silicon Group, Nanjing Silihua is also involved in the R&D of the parent chain of WTC. The block chain system developed by this company has received substantial recognition by the technology staff of the government. And it is currently applying for the science and technology award of the Nanjing government.
Apart from this, Xiameng IOT Technology Co.,Ltd, another subsidiary of the Silicon Group, has received a 5-million-yuan subsidy for the project “Smart Ocean of Fujian Province”. The subsidy will be used for the establishment of an IOT-RFID system and the development of the corresponding series of products, which will be a dramatic driving force to the development of Smart Ocean industry in China. So far, the IOT-RFID product has made its footprint across the provinces and cities of mainland China, as well as in Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, other southeastern Asian countries, North America and Europe . Its stability, sensitivity and reliability have been the model in the industry.
The Walton Coin (WTC)
  • Any child chain creation needs to expend Walton Coins (WTC). As the Walton ecosystem continues to grow, an increasing number of businesses will be joining the ecosystem, as a result of which they will expend a growing amount of WTC to create all kinds of child chains. Thus, the demands for WTC will rise correspondingly.
  • WTC is the only token of the parent chain in the entire business ecosystem. Any cross-child-chain data transmission and asset exchange will expend WTC. Once the ecosystem has been in place, the demands from the businesses for WTC will keep expanding.
  • The allocation mechanism of the transaction fees (such as A coins and B coins ) expended in the important officially-released child chains will be adjusted in an innovative manner, such as those in the transaction child chain or the sales child chain which will be used in the high-frequency circulation. Most of the transaction fees (say 90%) will be allocated to the wallets of child chain book-keeping nodes, while a small proportion (say 10%) will be exchanged to WTC and allocated to the wallets of parent chain book-keeping nodes.
As mentioned in the White paper, RFID tags can also play a vital role in smart stores. Although not unique to Waltonchain here are some RFID and smart store examples..
  • Smart hanger function: when the customer picks up the clothes on the smart hanger, the smart hanger automatically identifies the clothing label in the hands of the customer, the touch screen displays all the information of the clothes in a timely manner and inputs the data into the background server at the same time; the analyzing software automatically counts the data and generates statistical reports of each period for managers to view.
  • Smart fitting room function: when the customer picks up the clothes and walks into the fitting room, the smart fitting room automatically identifies the clothing label in the hands of the customer, the touch screen displays all the information of the clothes in a timely manner and inputs the data into the background server at the same time; the analyzing software automatically counts the data and generates statistical reports of each period (houmonth) for managers to view and estimate the production plan and popular designs according to the fitting rate.
  • Quick check-out function: using RFID can automatically identify the target information, the receiver can read multiple tags at once within its effective working range to achieve the simultaneous identification of multiple products, thus speeding up the check-out process and improve customer satisfaction.
  • Quick Decisions: A customer can't decide which of 3 dresses she wants. To help her decision, she looks at the RFID data and the movement of the dress in the store. It's there that she notices dresses #1 and #2 are often taken to the fitting rooms, but from there, dress #1 outsells dress #2. Dress #3 on the other hand barely makes it to the fitting room at all. Now, she's able to refine her decision making.
RFID technology is a rapidly growing market estimated to reach $40 billion by 2025. It's a competitive market with RAIN RFID (Board of directors include Google, Impinj, AIM, Smartrac and Amazon) but don't let that discourage you.. RFID is still in its infancy in terms of implementation which means there is plenty of room for growth and competition. And let's not forget, Waltonchain also has an impressive team and something RAIN doesn't... Blockchain technology. Waltonchain has patents readily available which gives it advantages over potential competitors.
You know.. I am not a writer but I tried to summarize Walton and it's potential the best I could. Even after reading this post you may not understand the probability of success. But i'll tell you this.. Finding manufacturers and retail stores in China to help launch this technology is NOT difficult at all. It would be quite the opposite, manufacturers and retail stores would be more than willing to participate considering the benefits RFID provides. It's the blockchain technology behind Waltonchains RFID chips, the ongoing research and development, the security, the intellectual property and everything in-between that makes Waltonchain valuable. Now I am not saying I think Walton will own every RFID smart-tag in existence, but I do believe Waltonchain's technology has potential to capture a good portion of the market long-term. Now remember, I am just telling you why I am holding Waltonchain and you should always research and come up with your own assessment before investing.

RFID and Internet of Things:
The number and range of IoT applications that can be envisioned with RFID devices are simply tremendous. The inherent value of RFID lies in enabling “things” to report data in real time for faster, quicker, more interactive decisions both at the industrial level and — increasingly — at the consumer level.
Perhaps the best-known concept, sometimes called the “killer app” for IoT, is the interconnected, automated home, where people can interact with everyday devices in their homes. This vision of the future sees appliances such as refrigerators being aware of their ‘state’, and knowing when to order and replenish groceries; electronics such as lighting, music and TV automatically tuning to individual preferences, which can be managed by presence (proximity to RF-enabled device), by time or by sensory input; access solutions, whether logical ones for Wi-Fi user authorization, or hands-free operation of doors and windows... the possibilities are truly endless. - Smartrac Group
RFID Information:
  • The global radio frequency identification (RFID) technology market is estimated to reach USD 40.5 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. MarketWatch, May 2017
  • "We definitely see continued growth in retail, and unfolding to the point that it becomes as common as the barcode," - Carl Rysdon, VP of sales for Checkpoint Systems
  • "As good as this sounds, and as big as these numbers might appear, RFID adoption is still only scratching the surface — even when looking at retail apparel applications, where RFID tagging is perhaps achieving 1% of the total available market. Looking outside retail apparel, it’s even more obvious that RFID is still in its infancy in terms of implementation, considering the trillions of objects all around us that can be RFID-enabled." - ChainLink Research

[Keyphrase] "American Dream", "hard work"
Today women make up about half of U.S. workforce, but make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns.
[Suggestion] That is wrong
Women deserve equal pay for equal work.
*Applause* 
You know, she deserves to have a baby without sacrificing her job.
*Applause* 
A mother deserves a day off to care for a sick child or sick parent without running into hardship.
*Applause* 
And you know what, a father does too. It is time to do away with workplace policies that belong in a "Mad Men" episode.
*Laughter* *Applause* 
This year let's all come together, Congress, the White House, businesses from Wall Street to Main Street, to give every woman the opportunity she deserves, because I believe when women succeed, America succeeds.
*Applause* 
[Mention] Wage gap
Americans overwhelmingly agree that no one who works full-time should ever have to raise a family in poverty
*Applause* 
In the year since I asked this Congress to raise the minimum wage, five states have passed laws to raise theirs. Many businesses have done it on their own.
[Anecdote] Pizza place in Minneapolis increases wages
Tonight I ask more of America's business leaders to follow John's lead. Do what you can to raise your employees' wages.
*Applause* 
To every mayor, governor, state legislator in America, I say, you don't have to wait for Congress to act; Americans will support you if you take this on. And as a chief executive, I intend to lead by example. Profitable corporations like Costco see higher wages as the smart way to boost productivity and reduce turnover. We should too.
[Intention] Issue executive order requiring federal contractors to pay federally-funded employees at least $10.10 an hour
because if you cook our troops' meals or wash their dishes, you should not have to live in poverty.
*Applause* 
[Fact] The federal minimum wage is worth 20% less than it was at Ronald Reagan's first address.
[Pending Legislation] Tom Harkin and George Miller have a bill to fix that by lifting the minimum wage to $10.10.
It's easy to remember: 10.10. This will help families. It will give businesses customers with more money to spend. It does not involve any new bureaucratic program. So join the rest of the country. Say yes. Give America a raise.
*Applause* 
[Mention] Earned Income Tax Credit
Right now, it helps about half of all parents at some point, but it doesn't do enough for single workers who don't have kids
[Intention] "strengthen" the Credit
Let's do more to help Americans save for retirement. Today most workers don't have a pension. A Social Security check often isn't enough on its own. And while the stock market has doubled over the last five years, that doesn't help folks who don't have 401(k)s.
[Intention] Creation of savings bond "MyRA" which "guarantees a decent return with no risk of losing what you put in"
And if this Congress wants to help, work with me to fix an upside-down tax code that gives big tax breaks to help the wealthy save, but does little or nothing for middle-class Americans, offer every American access to an automatic IRA on the job, so they can save at work just like everybody in this chamber can. And since the most important investment many families make is their home, send me legislation that protects taxpayers from footing the bill for a housing crisis ever again, and keeps the dream of homeownership alive for future generations.
*Applause* 
For decades, few things exposed hard-working families to economic hardship more than a broken health care system. And in case you haven't heard, we're in the process of fixing that.
*Laughter* *Applause* 
[Mention] Affordable Care Act
[Anecdote] Arizona resident benefits from Affordable Care Act
[Fact] Under the Affordable Care Act, more than 3 million Americans under age 26 have gained coverage under their parents' plans.
*Applause* 
[Fact] More than 9 million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage
*Applause* 
And here's another number: zero. Because of this law, no American, none, zero, can ever again be dropped or denied coverage for a pre-existing condition like asthma or back pain or cancer.
*Applause* 
No woman can ever be charged more just because she's a woman.
*Applause* 
And we did all this while adding years to Medicare's finances, keeping Medicare premiums flat and lowering prescription costs for millions of seniors.
Now, I do not expect to convince my Republican friends on the merits of this law.
*Laughter* 
But I know that the American people are not interested in refighting old battles. So again, if you have specific plans to cut costs, cover more people, increase choice, tell America what you'd do differently. Let's see if the numbers add up.
*Applause* 
But let's not have another 40- something votes to repeal a law that's already helping millions of Americans like Amanda.
*Applause* 
The first 40 were plenty. We all owe it to the American people to say what we're for, not just what we're against.

*Applause* 
[Keyphrase] "terrorism", "constitutional ideals", "setting an example for the rest of the world"
You see, in a world of complex threats, our security, our leadership depends on all elements of our power—including strong and principled diplomacy. American diplomacy has rallied more than 50 countries to prevent nuclear materials from falling into the wrong hands, and allowed us to reduce our own reliance on Cold War stockpiles.
[Suggestion] American diplomacy, backed by the threat of force, is why Syria's chemical weapons are being eliminated
*Applause* 
[Policy] We will continue to work with the international community in the Syrian conflict
[Keyphrase] "dictatorship", "terror", "fear"
[Mention] American diplomacy in Israel/Palestine conflict
[Policy] achieve independent state for Palestinians, provide military aid for Israel

[Suggestion] Inspections help the world verify that Iran is not building a bomb
[Policy] Prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon
*Applause* 
[Keyphrase] "terrorist", "Hezbollah"
If John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan could negotiate with the Soviet Union, then surely a strong and confident America can negotiate with less powerful adversaries today.

[Keyphrase] "But let me be clear"
if this Congress sends me a new sanctions bill now that threatens to derail these talks, I will veto it.
*Applause* 
[Keyphrase] "national security", "diplomacy"
*Applause* 
If Iran's leaders do not seize this opportunity, then I will be the first to call for more sanctions and stand ready to exercise all options to make sure Iran does not build a nuclear weapon.
[Suggestion] Iranian compliance with U.S. policy
[Suggestion] In capitalist expansion and good deeds, U.S. is winning

*Applause* 
[Intention] Guarantee every child access to "a world-class education"
*Applause* 
[Anecdote] Immigrant son of a factory worker gets accepted to college
*Applause* 
[Mention] Student loan reform
[Fact] Today more young people are earning college degrees than ever before
[Suggestion] Race to the Top has helped states raise expectations and performance
School faculty are making progress in preparing students with the skills for the new economy -- problem solving, critical thinking, science, technology, engineering, math.
[Suggestion] U.S. education needs more challenging curriculums and more demanding parents
[Fact] Research shows that one of the best investments we can make in a child's life is high-quality early education
*Applause* 
[Mention] unsuccessful 2013 universal preschool proposal
[Intention] universal preschool proposal
[Fact] 30 states have raised universal preschool funding on their own
[Intention] assemble coalition of elected officials, business leaders, and philanthropists to help fund universal preschool proposal
*Applause* 
[Mention] ConnectED initiative
With the support of the FCC and corporations we've got a down payment to connect more than 15,000 schools and 20 million students with broadband access over the next 2 years
*Applause* 
We're working to redesign high schools and partner them with colleges and employers that offer the real-world education and hands-on training that can lead directly to a job and career. We're shaking up our system of higher education to give parents more information and colleges more incentives to offer better value, so that no middle- class kid is priced out of a college education. We're offering millions the opportunity to cap their monthly student loan payments to 10 percent of their income
[Intention] further relief from student loan debt
*Applause* 
And I'm reaching out to some of America's leading foundations and corporations on a new initiative to help more young men of color facing especially tough odds stay on track and reach their full potential.
[Keyphrase] "American Dream", "hard work"
Today women make up about half of U.S. workforce, but make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns.
[Suggestion] That is wrong
Women deserve equal pay for equal work.
*Applause* 
You know, she deserves to have a baby without sacrificing her job.
*Applause* 
A mother deserves a day off to care for a sick child or sick parent without running into hardship.
*Applause* 
And you know what, a father does too. It is time to do away with workplace policies that belong in a "Mad Men" episode.
*Laughter* *Applause* 
This year let's all come together, Congress, the White House, businesses from Wall Street to Main Street, to give every woman the opportunity she deserves, because I believe when women succeed, America succeeds.
*Applause* 
[Mention] Wage gap
Americans overwhelmingly agree that no one who works full-time should ever have to raise a family in poverty
*Applause* 
In the year since I asked this Congress to raise the minimum wage, five states have passed laws to raise theirs. Many businesses have done it on their own.
[Anecdote] Pizza place in Minneapolis increases wages
Tonight I ask more of America's business leaders to follow John's lead. Do what you can to raise your employees' wages.
*Applause* 
To every mayor, governor, state legislator in America, I say, you don't have to wait for Congress to act; Americans will support you if you take this on. And as a chief executive, I intend to lead by example. Profitable corporations like Costco see higher wages as the smart way to boost productivity and reduce turnover. We should too.
[Intention] Issue executive order requiring federal contractors to pay federally-funded employees at least $10.10 an hour
because if you cook our troops' meals or wash their dishes, you should not have to live in poverty.
*Applause* 
[Fact] The federal minimum wage is worth 20% less than it was at Ronald Reagan's first address.
[Pending Legislation] Tom Harkin and George Miller have a bill to fix that by lifting the minimum wage to $10.10.
It's easy to remember: 10.10. This will help families. It will give businesses customers with more money to spend. It does not involve any new bureaucratic program. So join the rest of the country. Say yes. Give America a raise.
*Applause* 
[Mention] Earned Income Tax Credit
Right now, it helps about half of all parents at some point, but it doesn't do enough for single workers who don't have kids
[Intention] "strengthen" the Credit
Let's do more to help Americans save for retirement. Today most workers don't have a pension. A Social Security check often isn't enough on its own. And while the stock market has doubled over the last five years, that doesn't help folks who don't have 401(k)s.
[Intention] Creation of savings bond "MyRA" which "guarantees a decent return with no risk of losing what you put in"
And if this Congress wants to help, work with me to fix an upside-down tax code that gives big tax breaks to help the wealthy save, but does little or nothing for middle-class Americans, offer every American access to an automatic IRA on the job, so they can save at work just like everybody in this chamber can. And since the most important investment many families make is their home, send me legislation that protects taxpayers from footing the bill for a housing crisis ever again, and keeps the dream of homeownership alive for future generations.
*Applause* 
For decades, few things exposed hard-working families to economic hardship more than a broken health care system. And in case you haven't heard, we're in the process of fixing that.
*Laughter* *Applause* 
[Mention] Affordable Care Act
[Anecdote] Arizona resident benefits from Affordable Care Act
[Fact] Under the Affordable Care Act, more than 3 million Americans under age 26 have gained coverage under their parents' plans.
*Applause* 
[Fact] More than 9 million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage
*Applause* 
And here's another number: zero. Because of this law, no American, none, zero, can ever again be dropped or denied coverage for a pre-existing condition like asthma or back pain or cancer.
*Applause* 
No woman can ever be charged more just because she's a woman.
*Applause* 
And we did all this while adding years to Medicare's finances, keeping Medicare premiums flat and lowering prescription costs for millions of seniors.
Now, I do not expect to convince my Republican friends on the merits of this law.
*Laughter* 
But I know that the American people are not interested in refighting old battles. So again, if you have specific plans to cut costs, cover more people, increase choice, tell America what you'd do differently. Let's see if the numbers add up.
*Applause* 
But let's not have another 40- something votes to repeal a law that's already helping millions of Americans like Amanda.
*Applause* 
The first 40 were plenty. We all owe it to the American people to say what we're for, not just what we're against.
[Mention] Governor Steve Beshear of Kentucky
[Mention] Working class families
[Suggestion] Increase compliance with health insurance reform

[Fact] More than 60,000 of our troops have returned from Afghanistan and remaining troops have moved to a support role
[Fact] We will complete our mission there by the end of 2014
*Applause* 
[Pending Legislation: security agreement with Afghan government] U.S. soldiers could remain in Afghanistan with NATO allies to train and assist Afghan forces, and continue to combat al-Qaida

[Intention] surveillance program reform
*Applause* 
[Intention] lift remaining restrictions on detainee transfers, close Guantanamo
*Applause* 
[Keyphrase] "terrorism", "constitutional ideals", "setting an example for the rest of the world"
You see, in a world of complex threats, our security, our leadership depends on all elements of our power—including strong and principled diplomacy. American diplomacy has rallied more than 50 countries to prevent nuclear materials from falling into the wrong hands, and allowed us to reduce our own reliance on Cold War stockpiles.
[Suggestion] American diplomacy, backed by the threat of force, is why Syria's chemical weapons are being eliminated
*Applause* 
[Policy] We will continue to work with the international community in the Syrian conflict
[Keyphrase] "dictatorship", "terror", "fear"
[Mention] American diplomacy in Israel/Palestine conflict
[Policy] achieve independent state for Palestinians, provide military aid for Israel
*Applause* 
[Suggestion] American diplomacy, backed by pressure, has hampered Iran's nuclear program for the first time in 10 years.
[Fact] Iran has begun to eliminate its stockpile of higher levels of enriched uranium and haulted installation of advanced centrifuges.
[Suggestion] Inspections help the world verify that Iran is not building a bomb
[Policy] Prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon
*Applause* 
[Keyphrase] "terrorist", "Hezbollah"
If John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan could negotiate with the Soviet Union, then surely a strong and confident America can negotiate with less powerful adversaries today.
*Applause* 
[Suggestion] Iran sanctions effective.
[Keyphrase] "But let me be clear"
if this Congress sends me a new sanctions bill now that threatens to derail these talks, I will veto it.
*Applause* 
[Keyphrase] "national security", "diplomacy"
*Applause* 
If Iran's leaders do not seize this opportunity, then I will be the first to call for more sanctions and stand ready to exercise all options to make sure Iran does not build a nuclear weapon.
[Suggestion] Iranian compliance with U.S. policy
[Suggestion] In capitalist expansion and good deeds, U.S. is winning
[Mention] European alliance
