OmiseGO is one of thoseprojects that so many people areexcited about.
We are building a decentralizedexchange network that's going to connect different payment systemstogether.
My name isCasima and I'm the director of engineering for Plasma here at OmiseGO.
So what is Plasma?Plasma is basically an architectureframework for scaling blockchains.
The goal is to be able to do billions of state updatesper second on this network which is publicallyaccountable on the public chain.
The nice thing about Plasmais 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 bigresponsibility. Yes.
Sowe are OmiseGO the big core challenge we are trying toaddress is financial inclusion. How do you make paymentsthrough wallets available toeveryone in aneasy to understand manner.
I think what's missing a lot in the blockchainspace is how doyou just make it accessible to normal people?And I think [inaudible] in terms of the identity and KYCand key management, those are all going to helpaddress a lot of [inaudible] issues.
Ilooked at OmiseGO last summer when I saw thatVitalik was meeting with the Central Bank of Thailand.The more I learned about OmiseGO, the morethe [inaudible] pervious work and really resonated with me.
I was sold. I really wanted to be a part of thisproject.
Funfairis a developer of the platform,protocol, technology and games. We license the games toaffiliates and whitelabel casinos. They are the onesthat market it around the world to players.
Atthe moment in the online gaming industry, players don't alwaystrust the online casinos.
FunfairTechnologies is approaching the problem with trust in online gamingby building games that can't cheat.
There are two specific areas that we thinkwe can bring to this that no one else is. The first one is in the presentation of thegames. We've been working with video games for years, we know how to make thingsfun, exciting,fast, engaging.
The second area is around the actualunderlying way in which we interact with the chain.
The blockchain is a publicledger that is completely transparent, that anyone is allowedto see. Because all our games run on the blockchain,we get the fairness and the ability to be able tosee the game isn't cheating them.
One of the problems with blockchaingames is that they have a transaction fee,a gas cost for every transaction. The technology we've pioneeredis called fate channels. These all thegames to run in realtime at faster than blockchainspeeds and yet they don't have a gas cost for each transaction.
In the conventional online casino world, people have to makedeposits with credit cards into the casinos' ownaccount. 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. Theyjust play the games directly from their owncash wallet.
In order to play the games, people use FUNtokens. FUN tokens are also used inside the game for variousservices like random numbers and they are used outside thegame to reward affiliates and whitelabeledcasinos.
We are building a broad range of products. Everything fromslot machines to table games, blackjack,baccarat, roulette.
We are building it all on top of thissystem.
Our players want games that lookgood. That sound good. That play well. That are competitivewith anything else that's out there and yet they are provably fairand lower cost which meansplayers can win more.
We built a great team and I'mreally excited about what we'll beable to do in thefuture.

How much of your life isstored digitally? Your photos, yourfiles, your most intimate conversations.
It's all on ahard drive somewhere and it's probably easy toaccess by you but also by the cloud storagecompanies you trust.
Those companieshave a track record of handing over your data togovernments. Their first priority is to makeprofit for their shareholders, not your privacy.
Then there iscyber crime. It is become a bigger business than the trade ofillicit drugs due to the enormous amount ofdata stored on cloud servers, they are a targetthat's hard for hackers to exist.
It's time to takesecurity and privacy back intoour own hands.
Maidsafeuses decentralization and encryptionto ensure that only you can access yourfiles. The Safe network is completelydistributed. There is no central point ofcontrol or weakness. The softwareconnects unused computing capacity to form aglobal network that can handle all data andcommunications.
It's not just aboutstorage, it allows you to safely run anyapp that exists today while paying you foryour contribution.
Here is how it works.You create an account withoutthe need to identify yourself anddecide how much space you want to dedicate to the network.
As the space is used,Safe coins are given as a reward. Safe coin hasa market value and can be freely tradedjust like bitcoin.
Before youupload a file, it is encrypted onyour computer. It is then fragmented into smallpieces and spread at random throughout thenetwork. Data is stored with redundancyand files are autonomously moved by thenetwork as connected computers are turned on andoff.
Only you have the credentials to make itavailable again.
Yourdata and your thoughts belong only toyou. You decide what to do with them,no one else.

Historicallywe have been conditioned to think that progressrequires centralized structures to governand lead us on the path to economic prosperity.
Huge corporations, institutions and governmentshave controlled the decisionmaking process and shaped our future.
With theadvent of the sharing economy, companies such asUber or AirBnB have brought the power ofuser networks at the forefront, resulting inlower prices and better user experiences.
Dispite the obvious progress, the enduser still pays high costs due to thefees charged for the service, has minimal sayin the evolution of these platforms. And mighteven have his private data sold to 3rdparties.
But what if you couldcreate a network of online marketplaces andcommunities that function as decentralized,autonomous organizations?
Whatif you could recreate the internet'smost popular applications and services,while eliminating rent seeking, centralizeddecision making and the sale ofpersonal data.
And what if non technicalusers could create and administer theseorganizations? Gain votingrights and use new means of coordination throughfinancial incentives.
IntroducingDistrict0x, a collection of decentralizedmarketplaces and communities known asdistricts.
By combiningtechnology such as Ethereum, Paragon and IPFS,Distric0x allowsusers to create, operate and governdistricts that are open and extendable, allowingenhanced functionality and customizationthrough auxiliary modules.
Every district runs a market or bulletin boardapplication with functionality such asposting, listings, search and filtering,ranking and reputation or payments andinvoicing.
Let's have a look atEthlance, a freelance job market and the firstdistrict on the Distric0x network. Ethlanceallows users to list and apply foropen positions, rank and provide feedback andsend and receive invoices.
Itdoes not charge any fees and users onlypay the necessary cost of gas to theEthereum network in order to performthese actions.
Since its launch, projectssuch as Status, Aragon, WeTrust and manymore have used the platform to hirekey staff.
As opposed to presentday solutions, Ethlance is builtand run by the people at the lowest possiblecost for the end user.
But Ethlance is only the beginning. SoonDistric0x will comprise globalmarketplaces and help the localcommunities.
Anybody will be able to easilydesign and deploy their own districts to theDistric0x network.
If you want to be apart of the decentralizedfuture, contribute and leave the communitiesof tomorrow, then join Distric0xnow.
Livepeer is a platformfor video transcoding and distribution.
This is Doug, he's using Livepeer to livestream a workshop to his viewers around the world.Doug, our broadcaster, sends video into the Livepeernetwork. Livepeer transcodes the datainto all the formats and bitrates that his viewerscan consume.
This is a really importantbroadcast for Doug. How does he know the experience will behigh quality?
There are two key actors in the Livepeernetwork that ensure the quality of the livestream -- transcoders and delegators.
Transcodersperform the job of transcoding the stream into anotherbit rate or packaging format for all of Doug'sviewers. And delegators are token holderswho stake towards transcoders.
Doug knowsthat his transcoder has been nominated by100s of tokenholders who have chosen to stake theirtoken towards the transcoder. And thatis where you come in.
As a token holderyou want to participate in the network by staking Livepeertoken towards a transcoder. You can think about staking likeputting a deposit down. Your tokens are lockedup for a period of time and then you can take themback or stake towards a different transcoder.
Doing thishelps ensure the network is more secure.
Thecool thing is you earn additional Livepeer token just from stakingyour token with the transcoder as a reward for ensuringa high quality and secure network.
First when Dougpays fees into the network, both transcoders and delegators likeyou earn a portion of those fees for thework that you are doing to secure the network.
Second,Livepeer also mints new token over time much likeBitcoin block rewards which are split amongst delegatorsand transcoders that do honest work. The easiest wayfor you to stake your tokens is to visit our explorer.
This willdisplay a list of active transcoders on the network. It'syour job as a token holder to research transcoders basedupon their performance, statistics, rates theyare charging and stake your tokens.

Understanding the blockchaintechnology can be a hard task sincea highly technical language is used to describe the technology, thusmaking the real world implications of the protocol hard todiscern.
Thankfully the Loopring protocolsolves this problem along with others that may face theaverage crypto user such as the pooruser experience of trying to trade on adecentralized exchange, DEX, with anemic trade volume.And the majority of bids are highly opportunistic and out of themoney.
Having to keep coins inmultiple exchanges so you can quickly execute trades onfast moving trade opportunities. And the constantneed to transfer tokens between the CEX and yourwallet to prevent major losses to a hacked exchangeaccount.
With Loopring, you don't have to worry aboutthat. Our ring matching technology can split up atrade across multiple counter-parties that will maketrades execute more efficiently than other protocols.
This is a big differentiator compared to otherDEX protocols.
The Loopring protocol can be usedby wallets, DEX, CEX and HEXwhich makes the liquidity potential far greater than competingprotocols.
We put an end to all of theseproblems and many more.
Loopring is theperfect platform for you to executesimple, profitable and secure trades.
The sharing economy has redefinedhow the world does business. Millions of people all over theworld 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 preferproducts and services from individual suppliers rather thanfrom large faceless corporateentities.
Yet even in the sharing economy there are still unnecessarymiddlemen. Companies like Lyft,Postmates and Fiverr are centralized companies that controluser identity and transaction data.
They takehuge fees often as high as20% to 30%. We can do better.
IntroducingOrigin. The blockchain based platform where dozens of decentralizedpeer to peer marketplaces are currently beingbuilt. Buyers and sellers for all different types of goods andservices can meet without rent seeking intermediariesand transact in a more open and transparentway.
Users now own their own dataand can use their single sign on Origin accounts tobuy and sell across any marketplace built on the Originplatform.
Origin enabled businesses are able tolower fees, reduce censorship andgive back to early participants in the community.
Built on theethereum blockchain and IPFS, Origin leveragescutting edge blockchain technology to put thesharing economy directly in the hands of the people.
It's timeinternet marketplaces catch up to the blockchainrevolution and become truly peer to peer.
Jointhe Origin community today and get to know the new andimproved future of the sharingeconomy.
Welcome to Status, yourgateway to the decentralized web.
As webecome more connected via technology, webecome part of a seemingly endlessnetwork of institutions and 3rd party services,claiming to make our lives easier.
These institutionsserve as a trusted middleman to help facilitateour transactions. While this maysound great, serious problemsexist.
We now have a fragmented system of identities andpasswords. We have placed far toomuch of our personal data in the hands of others and wehave given too much power to banks and legalsystems.
Luckily, there is another way.
Enterthe decentralized web on the Ethereum public blockchain.The blockchain is a decentralizeddatabase that stores a registry of assets,smart contracts and transactions across aglobally connected peer to peer network.
Ifused to its full potential, it will fundamentallychange our conception of how the internet,finance and law works. And it can completelyeliminate our reliance on trusted3rd parties.
It's not an app. It's not a company.It's not owned by anyone rather it'san open system owned byeveryone.
So how do we interact with the nextgeneration of the internet? How do we ensure itremains decentralized?
Just as browsers provide a gatewayto websites and institutions, Statusprovides a gateway to decentralized apps and services.More than an app, Status is a community,governed by its own users and givesaccess to a world free from controllinginterests and censorship. It works with a number ofdecentralized apps built on Ethereumto replace your wallet and bank, combining them with amessenger and browser.
Simply put, Statusis an open portal to the future web.
