Unbank the banked
OmiseGO is one of those projects that so many people are excited about.

[music]
[music]

We are building a decentralized
exchange network that's going to connect different payment systems together.

[music]
[music] [music] [music] [music]

My name is
Casima and I'm the director of engineering for Plasma here at OmiseGO.

So what is Plasma?
Plasma is basically an architecture framework for scaling blockchains.

The goal is to be able to do billions of state updates
per second on this network which is publically accountable on the public chain.

The nice thing about Plasma
is it doesn't require any changes to the ethereum base layer. So pretty much anyone can spin off a Plama system whenever.

This version is working on the official
[inaudible] network that is created by OmiseGO. It supports ERC20 tokens.

What do you do have OmiseGO?
I'm taking care of the [inaudible]. That sounds like a big responsibility. Yes.

So
we are OmiseGO the big core challenge we are trying to address is financial inclusion. How do you make payments through wallets available to everyone in an easy to understand manner.

I think what's missing a lot in the blockchain
space is how do you just make it accessible to normal people? And I think [inaudible] in terms of the identity and KYC and key management, those are all going to help address a lot of [inaudible] issues.

I
looked at OmiseGO last summer when I saw that Vitalik was meeting with the Central Bank of Thailand. The more I learned about OmiseGO, the more the [inaudible] pervious work and really resonated with me.

I was sold. I really wanted to be a part of this
project.

Game-changing blockchain casino technology
Funfair is a developer of the platform, protocol, technology and games. We license the games to affiliates and whitelabel casinos. They are the ones that market it around the world to players.

At
the moment in the online gaming industry, players don't always trust the online casinos.

Funfair
Technologies is approaching the problem with trust in online gaming by building games that can't cheat.

There are two specific areas that we think
we can bring to this that no one else is. The first one is in the presentation of the games. We've been working with video games for years, we know how to make things fun, exciting, fast, engaging.

The second area is around the actual
underlying way in which we interact with the chain.

The blockchain is a public
ledger that is completely transparent, that anyone is allowed to see. Because all our games run on the blockchain, we get the fairness and the ability to be able to see the game isn't cheating them.

One of the problems with blockchain
games is that they have a transaction fee, a gas cost for every transaction. The technology we've pioneered is called fate channels. These all the games to run in realtime at faster than blockchain speeds and yet they don't have a gas cost for each transaction.

In the conventional online casino world, people have to make
deposits with credit cards into the casinos' own account. So the players lose control of their own funds.

In our games the player keeps control of their funds at all times.
They don't make a deposit, they don't need to make a withdrawal. They just play the games directly from their own cash wallet.

In order to play the games, people use FUN
tokens. FUN tokens are also used inside the game for various services like random numbers and they are used outside the game to reward affiliates and whitelabeled casinos.

We are building a broad range of products. Everything from
slot machines to table games, blackjack, baccarat, roulette.

We are building it all on top of this
system.

Our players want games that look
good. That sound good. That play well. That are competitive with anything else that's out there and yet they are provably fair and lower cost which means players can win more.

We built a great team and I'm
really excited about what we'll be able to do in the future.
Real world assets into NFT's
[silence] [silence] [silence] [silence]

0xcert is the first open protocol built

Lisk will make it easy for developers to build..
[music] [music]

Decentralized
apps or dAPPS are super hot right now. Enormous sums of money and brain power are flowing into the sector, and very exciting things are happening.

But
what a pity that it's so hard for beginnings to gain a foothold. Developing and bringing your dAPP to market was no walk in the park until now.

Say hello to
Lisk, a platform for DAPPS and custom blockchains written in Javascript. Developers can build, publish, distribute and monetize their DAPPS using our custom built cryptocurrency powered system.

Are you worried that it's too difficult or it's going to be a pain
to learn all these new languages and toolkits? Not with Lisk.

We're doing it very differently.


You can write DAPPS for Lisk in Javascript, a
language that over 100,000 coders are fluent in instead of new and unproven languages used by other projects.

It makes for a much lower barrier to entry
and encourages rapid development cycles.

With Lisk, every decentralized
application is running in its own side chain with no limits as opposed to a single bloated blockchain.

Lisk has a strong focus on
an excellent user experience, making it accessible for everyone.

Do you want to sell your
own dApp and rapidly turn your start-up into a successful business? With our integrated dApp store you can.

Are you ready for
Lisk?

Get your share of Lisk in the
ICO, it will only last a few weeks so this is your chance.

Lisk, changing the
way you dAPP.
How much of your life is stored digitally? Your photos, your files, your most intimate conversations.

It's all on a
hard drive somewhere and it's probably easy to access by you but also by the cloud storage companies you trust.

Those companies
have a track record of handing over your data to governments. Their first priority is to make profit for their shareholders, not your privacy.

Then there is
cyber crime. It is become a bigger business than the trade of illicit drugs due to the enormous amount of data stored on cloud servers, they are a target that's hard for hackers to exist.

It's time to take
security and privacy back into our own hands.

Maidsafe
uses decentralization and encryption to ensure that only you can access your files. The Safe network is completely distributed. There is no central point of control or weakness. The software connects unused computing capacity to form a global network that can handle all data and communications.

It's not just about
storage, it allows you to safely run any app that exists today while paying you for your contribution.

Here is how it works.
You create an account without the need to identify yourself and decide how much space you want to dedicate to the network.

As the space is used,
Safe coins are given as a reward. Safe coin has a market value and can be freely traded just like bitcoin.

Before you
upload a file, it is encrypted on your computer. It is then fragmented into small pieces and spread at random throughout the network. Data is stored with redundancy and files are autonomously moved by the network as connected computers are turned on and off.

Only you have the credentials to make it
available again.

Your
data and your thoughts belong only to you. You decide what to do with them, no one else.

MaidSafe -
privacy, security and freedom for everyone.
A collective of decentralized marketplaces
Historically we have been conditioned to think that progress requires centralized structures to govern and lead us on the path to economic prosperity.

Huge corporations, institutions and governments
have controlled the decision making process and shaped our future.

With the
advent of the sharing economy, companies such as Uber or AirBnB have brought the power of user networks at the forefront, resulting in lower prices and better user experiences.

Dispite the obvious progress, the end
user still pays high costs due to the fees charged for the service, has minimal say in the evolution of these platforms. And might even have his private data sold to 3rd parties.

But what if you could
create a network of online marketplaces and communities that function as decentralized, autonomous organizations?

What
if you could recreate the internet's most popular applications and services, while eliminating rent seeking, centralized decision making and the sale of personal data.

And what if non technical
users could create and administer these organizations? Gain voting rights and use new means of coordination through financial incentives.

Introducing
District0x, a collection of decentralized marketplaces and communities known as districts.

By combining
technology such as Ethereum, Paragon and IPFS, Distric0x allows users to create, operate and govern districts that are open and extendable, allowing enhanced functionality and customization through auxiliary modules.

Every district runs a market or bulletin board
application with functionality such as posting, listings, search and filtering, ranking and reputation or payments and invoicing.

Let's have a look at
Ethlance, a freelance job market and the first district on the Distric0x network. Ethlance allows users to list and apply for open positions, rank and provide feedback and send and receive invoices.

It
does not charge any fees and users only pay the necessary cost of gas to the Ethereum network in order to perform these actions.

Since its launch, projects
such as Status, Aragon, WeTrust and many more have used the platform to hire key staff.

As opposed to present
day solutions, Ethlance is built and run by the people at the lowest possible cost for the end user.

But Ethlance is only the beginning. Soon
Distric0x will comprise global marketplaces and help the local communities.

Anybody will be able to easily
design and deploy their own districts to the Distric0x network.

If you want to be a
part of the decentralized future, contribute and leave the communities of tomorrow, then join Distric0x now.
An open platform for live video broadcasting
Livepeer is a platform for video transcoding and distribution.

This is Doug, he's using Livepeer to live
stream a workshop to his viewers around the world. Doug, our broadcaster, sends video into the Livepeer network. Livepeer transcodes the data into all the formats and bitrates that his viewers can consume.

This is a really important
broadcast for Doug. How does he know the experience will be high quality?

There are two key actors in the Livepeer
network that ensure the quality of the live stream -- transcoders and delegators.

Transcoders
perform the job of transcoding the stream into another bit rate or packaging format for all of Doug's viewers. And delegators are token holders who stake towards transcoders.

Doug knows
that his transcoder has been nominated by 100s of tokenholders who have chosen to stake their token towards the transcoder. And that is where you come in.

As a token holder
you want to participate in the network by staking Livepeer token towards a transcoder. You can think about staking like putting a deposit down. Your tokens are locked up for a period of time and then you can take them back or stake towards a different transcoder.

Doing this
helps ensure the network is more secure.

The
cool thing is you earn additional Livepeer token just from staking your token with the transcoder as a reward for ensuring a high quality and secure network.

First when Doug
pays fees into the network, both transcoders and delegators like you earn a portion of those fees for the work that you are doing to secure the network.

Second,
Livepeer also mints new token over time much like Bitcoin block rewards which are split amongst delegators and transcoders that do honest work. The easiest way for you to stake your tokens is to visit our explorer.

This will
display a list of active transcoders on the network. It's your job as a token holder to research transcoders based upon their performance, statistics, rates they are charging and stake your tokens.

We
are always here to help if you head on over to Discord. [silence]
Crypto Trading
Understanding the blockchain technology can be a hard task since a highly technical language is used to describe the technology, thus making the real world implications of the protocol hard to discern.

Thankfully the Loopring protocol
solves this problem along with others that may face the average crypto user such as the poor user experience of trying to trade on a decentralized exchange, DEX, with anemic trade volume. And the majority of bids are highly opportunistic and out of the money.

Having to keep coins in
multiple exchanges so you can quickly execute trades on fast moving trade opportunities. And the constant need to transfer tokens between the CEX and your wallet to prevent major losses to a hacked exchange account.

With Loopring, you don't have to worry about
that. Our ring matching technology can split up a trade across multiple counter-parties that will make trades execute more efficiently than other protocols.

This is a big differentiator compared to other
DEX protocols.

The Loopring protocol can be used
by wallets, DEX, CEX and HEX which makes the liquidity potential far greater than competing protocols.

We put an end to all of these
problems and many more.

Loopring is the
perfect platform for you to execute simple, profitable and secure trades.

The consensus-driven map of the world
FOAM is building a decentralized proof of location protocol that offers a higher level of security and network strength than conventional location based services.

To
become a location service provider, a radio beacon stakes a safety deposit of FOAM tokens to participate in the network as a zone anchor. And searches three other beacons nearby.

Once four zone anchors are connected,
they ping messages back and forth to synchronize their clocks.

After reaching consensus
on the time, a zone is established and the zone anchors are rewarded in FOAM tokens.

A location customer enters the
zone and requests a presence claim. Then it transfers the zone authorities a fee.

Each zone authority
detects its distance to the location customer by measuring the time it takes to receive a message.

Once measured, the zone
authorities store the information on their local blockchain to reach consensus on what happened.

The presence claim is sent to
verifiers. They receive it and check the data against the data recorded within other zones.

This is
then printed in the ethereum blockchain and made public. And the location customer receives its verified location claim through a decentralized application.

Proof
of location has uses across an array of verticals. Mobility and transportation. Location based gaming and supply chains.

The sharing economy has redefined how the world does business. Millions of people all over the world are contributing their time, skills and resources into this new economy.

Uber drivers are replacing taxi drivers.
AirBnB hosts are competing with hotel chains. And Elance contractors are displacing full time workers.

And buyers are finding that they prefer
products and services from individual suppliers rather than from large faceless corporate entities.

Yet even in the sharing economy there are still unnecessary
middlemen. Companies like Lyft, Postmates and Fiverr are centralized companies that control user identity and transaction data.

They take
huge fees often as high as 20% to 30%. We can do better.

Introducing
Origin. The blockchain based platform where dozens of decentralized peer to peer marketplaces are currently being built. Buyers and sellers for all different types of goods and services can meet without rent seeking intermediaries and transact in a more open and transparent way.

Users now own their own data
and can use their single sign on Origin accounts to buy and sell across any marketplace built on the Origin platform.

Origin enabled businesses are able to
lower fees, reduce censorship and give back to early participants in the community.

Built on the
ethereum blockchain and IPFS, Origin leverages cutting edge blockchain technology to put the sharing economy directly in the hands of the people.

It's time
internet marketplaces catch up to the blockchain revolution and become truly peer to peer.

Join
the Origin community today and get to know the new and improved future of the sharing economy.
Access a Better Web, Anywhere
Welcome to Status, your gateway to the decentralized web.

As we
become more connected via technology, we become part of a seemingly endless network of institutions and 3rd party services, claiming to make our lives easier.

These institutions
serve as a trusted middleman to help facilitate our transactions. While this may sound great, serious problems exist.

We now have a fragmented system of identities and
passwords. We have placed far too much of our personal data in the hands of others and we have given too much power to banks and legal systems.

Luckily, there is another way.

Enter
the decentralized web on the Ethereum public blockchain. The blockchain is a decentralized database that stores a registry of assets, smart contracts and transactions across a globally connected peer to peer network.

If
used to its full potential, it will fundamentally change our conception of how the internet, finance and law works. And it can completely eliminate our reliance on trusted 3rd parties.

It's not an app. It's not a company.
It's not owned by anyone rather it's an open system owned by everyone.

So how do we interact with the next
generation of the internet? How do we ensure it remains decentralized?

Introducing
Status.

Just as browsers provide a gateway
to websites and institutions, Status provides a gateway to decentralized apps and services. More than an app, Status is a community, governed by its own users and gives access to a world free from controlling interests and censorship. It works with a number of decentralized apps built on Ethereum to replace your wallet and bank, combining them with a messenger and browser.

Simply put, Status
is an open portal to the future web.

Meet Justin, Justin has recently moved
from London to LA. It's a sunny morning and Justin is ready to get his day started.

He gets
dressed, grabs his cell phone and hits the road, feeling empowered with the capabilities of Status in his pocket.

First stop is the local coffee
shop. No wallet? No problem. Justin pays for his coffee with Ether from his Status wallet. And while waiting for his coffee, he checks his stock portfolio and sees gold is up big over night. Time to cash out some of his holdings.

Justin opens up Status and trades a portion of his Digix
gold tokens for a more stable currency. Not content with his gold earnings, he heads back to Status and starts scanning Ethlance for work. He's a graphic designer and looking for a freelance gig.

Within seconds, he finds numerous companies
in his field looking for people just like him.

He's in luck, he quickly finds a two week
freelance gig for a local agency. They message back almost immediately. He is perfect for the job, they just need some background information before finalizing the contract.

Via uPort, Justin
shares the requested credentials to prove his identity. And Justin has now paid for coffee, conquered the markets, and landed a job all while using Status.

He has done this freely without
middlemen and on his own terms.

Status
makes all of this possible in a simple and seamless way.

Join Status now and become part of the
decentralized web.
ETHLend
Spend funds without selling your crypto holdings
[silence] [silence]

A traditional loan takes a lot of
time and paperwork at the bank. Credit systems often neglect first time borrowers, young people and citizens of developing regions.

Also the interest rates differ widely
around the world, discriminating people in high interest countries.

Not anymore.


ETHLend connects lenders and borrowers all around the
globe using blockchain technology. This creates a decentralized lending market where everyone can participate. Enabling competitive interest rates determined by the free market.

Katherine uses ETHLend
and receives interest payments by lending money to people all around the globe including Sandeep in India who has a great credit profile.

Within a
few minutes, Sandeep is able to receive a competitive loan. The loan agreement is legally binding and the funds transfer within seconds, securely handled through self executing contracts called Smart Contracts.

They even store
loan collateral. Now Sandeep can improve his business.

He
later repays the loan to Katherine who enjoys the safe profit she has made with the interest payment during her holiday on Mauritius.

Now Sandeep's
business flourishes and he too because an ETH lender.
