In a world where many of our assets areheld by others, at Ethfinexwe believe in returning control to the user.
That'swhy we design tools thatgive traders choice. From a huge choice of tradingoptions to create unique strategies, to choosingyour level of custody and trusting us with assetsfor safety. Keeping full control for flexibilityor somewhere in between.
But it doesn't stopthere. We also give our traders controlof Ethfinex itself through ourNectar token.
Nectar holders have the powerto propose and vote on Ethfinexgovernance decisions from choosing our missionstatement to deciding which tokens can be traded on theplatform.
We even give a share of tradingfees from voted in tokens back to customers,so traders research and choose the tokens they believewill be successful in the long term.
Thismeans Ethfinex will always reflect the tokensour community wants to trade rather than thosewith the biggest pockets or bestconnections.
Using Ethfinex means being part ofEthfinex and being part of Ethfinex meansjoining the financial evolution oftoday.
Payments are one of the obviouskiller applications of blockchains. Butunfortunately blockchain's current transaction capacity is verylimited and therefore unable to support significantadoption.
Full blocks, high fees andlong confirmation times are the known effects of this limitation.
The problem is scalability.
Currently the ethereum network is only able to confirmroughly 10 transactions per second. Before blockchainswill see wide spread adoption for every day payments,they will need to be able to process roughly 100,000transactions per second.
Adoption alsorequires that the cost of transfers is negligible andthe confirmation time is within a subsecond ratherthan in the range of minutes.
The Raidennetwork aims to solve these problems. It uses a mix of meshpayment channels, deposits and cryptographictricks to allow for secure token transfers offchain.
Instead of using the blockchain as a global nodetree for all transfers, the blockchain is only used as asystem to eventually settle netted claims that resulted fromoffchain transfer activity.
This approach allowsthe Raiden network to scale with the number of users andtheir transfers. The more users participate, themore transfers can happen concurrently.
Further,transfers are extremely cheap, fast andprivate.
The Raiden network will compliment ethereumsuch that it can become a global scaled payment infrastructurefor everyday purchases by all of us as well as for theupcoming machine to machine economy.
Theoriginal idea of blockchain is to provide a purely pure to pureversion of electronic cash. Our mission is toprovide the technology which allows this visionto scale towards widespread adoption.

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.

Peer-to-peer ETH-to-fiat marketplace
Localethereum.comis the new private way to buy andsell ether. Until now there has been no easy way to tradeether. With tedious verificationprocesses, expensive fees and no cash options,traders are getting the raw end of the day.
Butlocalethereum is changing the game. It's aprivate peer to peer marketplace where you andonly you have complete control of yourdata and trades.
Here is how it works.To buy ether find a seller you are happy with orcreate a new buy offer. Traders on localethereumare real people just like you. Offers can befiltered by price, distance andmethod. Whether it be face to face, bank transfer or something else.
When you open a trade messages areencrypted with a secret key making itimpossible for anybody else to know what you are saying.
This secret key is stored in your browser and never touchesthe internet. Once you've agreed on thedetails, the seller deposits etherinto a multi sig escrow smart contract.
When both parties arehappy, the ether is released and thatsecret key is destroyed erasing the message historyforever.
In the case of a dispute, traders can call inan arbitrator for help. By providing the arbitratorthe secret key, they'll be able to decrypt themessages and work with both parties to make a fairdecision.
Afterwards the partiesgive each other a rating. These ratings form aweb of trust that is available for everyone tosee to ensure that you are always safe when tradingether.
Localethereum makes trading etherwith strangers feel like you are trading with friends.And in the future localethereum will harnessthe power of Swarm and Whisper to go completelydecentralized.
The marketplace is launchingsoon. Be the first to hear major announcementsby joining the waiting list.

Ihavesomething you want and you have something that Iwant. So we should make a deal.
To make a dealwe come to the table. The problemis the table belongs to someone else. So when wesit at their table, a middleman controls theprocess, holds our valuables and charges us a lot ofmoney.
It's risky, slow andexpensive.
What would it look ilke if this weren't just atable but a network? A network that no one owns and you cantrade directly with each other without anyone in the middle.
Enter 0x. 0x is a decentralizedexchange protocol. It's a set ofrules that businesses and developers use to create a network ofexchanges that no one controls.
With0x, anyone can come to thetable. This means ifI wanted to trade my currency for your currency without anyoneelse, I could do that.
Or if I wanted to trademy currency for some real estate, I can do thattoo. I can trade anything foranything with anyone.
0x isn't justabout charts and order books, it's about the exchange ofvalue. Developers can use 0xto create marketplaces for the entire world of assets, old andnew. They can create markets for game items from your favoritegames or for digitalcommodities like storage or computer power?
Even digitalart and collectables.
The 0x protocolis open source and governed by its users, removing allgeographic barriers and opening the door to markets thatcould never of existed before.

Basically we readmeters remotely from people and see how much energythey are consuming. Then we make predictions of how much they are going toconsume in the next hours.
Forthat data, we put a demand on the market to get the bestprice for them.
[inaudible] was the onlyand the best blockchain accelerator program that we knewof. We did a lot of research aboutother acceleration programs also. Butto get the network of the blockchain, to get the abilityto work with themtogether, that was the main reason for us.
I've met awesomepeople inside [inaudible] andalso outside from other blockchain communitiesalso.
So I didn't expectto get this much harsh experience with them.It was great for me in Berlin and also in San Francisco.

We will get also othercustomers. Our first target is the Europeanmarket because they are deregulatedalready. Then we will go toTurkey, Singaporeand US.
Bisq is adecentralized bitcoin exchange. It's an open source,peer to peer system that allows anyone to buy andsell bitcoin in exchange for national currencieslike dollars, euros or yen.
In manyways Bisq is like bitcoin itself.Bitcoin is decentralized money,a system designed to allow parties to transact directly. Eliminatingthe need for monetary middlemen.
Bisq is built on the same philosophy,bringing the principles of decentralizationto the process of buying and selling bitcoin.
While there are plentyof bitcoin exchanges out there today, almost all ofthem are centralized. And that means there is a 3rdparty, a middleman.
The companies that runcentralized exchanges provide a valuable serviceand naturally they charge a fee for that. But reducing oreliminating fees isn't the onlyconcern.
Removing middlemen is also about ensuring privacyof the data and the security of your funds.
Bitcoin has proven payment transactions withouttrusted 3rd parties are possible.
Bisqbuilds on bitcoin to remove 3rd partiesfrom exchange transactions aswell.
With Bisq there is nothing and no one between buyers andsellers and software.
Of coursebuilding this kind of system and making sure it is secure isn'teasy. But we've designed a sophisticatedsolution.
You can read all about it in our whitepaperand other docs at Bisq.io
We'veproven this concept with working software. Andby the way, when we say that Bisq is decentralized,we aren't just talking about the code and the peer to peernetwork, every aspect of the Bisq effort is decentralized including how the code iswritten and how the project is managed.
We aren't a start-up or a company,we are a small and passionate group of people spread out around theworld. We are building Bisq because we think that aproperly decentralized bitcoin exchange network needsto exist.
If you do too then wecould use your help.

Liquidswaptrustless.Swap directly wallet to walletwithout custodial or counter partyrisk. Free. No exchangefees. Only gas to empowerfreedom of value exchange.
Any internet platform orsocial media channel turns into an orderbook.
Liquidity won't be locked up oncertain platforms - exchanges and is nowaccessible anywhere.
Building decentralizedexchange tools for mainstreamadoption, all global currencies will becomecryptocurrencies and value will flow as freelyas information today.
Crypto is already used bymillions of people and this increasesby the day.
We believe that building the right toolsfor better liquidity, simplicity and trust are thecornerstones for mainstream adoption.
Our our wizardto create a decentralized swap contract that youcan share with anyone on the internet.
Creating a swap isfree for users that stake a certain amount ofswap tokens. This is rewarding for high liquidityOTC trading.
Empower freedom ofvalue exchange.
Liquidswaps serve a growing demand for decentralizedvalue exchange between users around theworld.
Decentralized exchanges lack liquidityand good user experience and centralizedexchanges lack trust and privacy.
Bydesign Liquidswap is secure, easyto use and completely trustless to solve the next generationexchange dillema.
Decentralized andcommunity driven. Wefeel freedom of value exchange is not possible when owned bya central entity like how most financialinfrastructure is now controlled by the few.
This will becompletetly changed in a strong communityfocused movement will make sure we can be successful in bypassing thefew.
Token utilityto create a swap on Liquidswap, you need to stake a certain amountof Swap during the existance of the open swapcontract.
Once the contract is executedor cancelled, the staked Swap tokens will bereturned to the creator wallet.
Foradoption and usability reasons, staking will slowly beintegrated once the value of the protocol is moreproven by usage.
Automated or one clickswap purchasing from the market during swap creation might be aa solution to decrease frictionhere.
Another option we are looking at is to have a penaltycost in place when there is no Swap tokensstaked during the creation of the contract.
Other utility for the token will be access to exclusivehigh liquidity swap [inaudible] and OTCbroker networks payments for future Liquidswapservices and software payments for community tasks onEarnSwap.com and more usage of Liquidswapwill automatically drive demand for the Swaptoken.
We will always be looking for ways togrow the utility for the Swap token to ensure healthydemand to benefit the community and platform.
Community and growth driven with EarnSwap.comis designed for the community to grow the network andthrefore the overall value of the Liquidswapecosystem.
To making holding Swap accessiblefor everyone, we will launch the community rewardplatform, EarnSwap.com
EarnSwap.comcommunity will be organized as atask force for growth hacking ofLiquidSwap.
Swap can for example be earned bysharing Swaps throughout the internet and by raisingawareness for LiquidSwap.
Since Swaps are shareable,they have the potential to spread widelyand even become viral.

You canthink of Stellar's decentralizedledger as a database. A database that canstore more than just account balances andpayments.
Another use case for this databaseis the storing of offers to buy andsell assets. And all of theseoffers represent a global order book on a decentralizedexchange or DEXfor short.
Stellar'sDEX is similar to a decentralized version ofexchanges like GDAX,Bitrixand Binance.
You've got sell orders.Buy orders. And order match making.
The best way to understand the Stellar DEX is to compareit to other exchanges. In thisvideo we'll be comparing the features of the StellarDEX to that of centralizedexchanges and of DEXs built onethereum.
The first and most importantfeature being private key possession.Do you own and hold your private key or not?
Centralized exchanges store privatekeys on central servers which have a historyof being hacked.
EthereumDEX's store your funds in smartcontracts which also have a hackinghistory.
But with Stellar's DEX,you are in control of your private keys.You control your money.
The next is whether or not the order bookis stored on ledger oroff.
An order book is a list of everyone's buy and selloffers. And on ledger implies adata point is stored in the decentralizeddatabase.
A large amount of trust is placedin centralized exchanges and on theservers that they store orders on. You can be lockedout or it can go down and you won't be able to place anorder.
Due to longtransaction times and too few transactions persecond, buy and sell offers stored in the ethereumblockchain can get backed upforcing many ethereum DEXs to store order books andmatch offers off ledger on oneserver.
But because Stellar has anorder book and offer match making built in at the protocollevel, on ledger offers are a simple addition to thedecentralized database.
Nextup on ledger settlement. Once an order is matchedwith another compatible order,does the trade execute in the network with tokenstruly being swapped.
Oncentralized exchanges, this is not thecase. The private key holding the new tradedtokens is stored on the centralizedserver.
With ethereum DEXs andStellar's DEX, the trade actually occurson ledger.
Anotherkey difference is cost.Most centralized exchanges charge a substantialfee for purchases. EthereumDEXs also take a cut on top of the ethereumnetwork fee for a transaction.
But the Stellar DEX only costs 100[inaudible] per operation, a very smallamount. Many fractions of a cent.
Anotherway to understand the cost differences isthe total cost for 100,000$100 transactions.Around $25K for centralized exchanges.$24K for ethereum DEX's.And an incrediblytiny $0.40 for the StellarDEX.
A final distinction istransaction speed. Centralizedexchanges are incredibly fast at around1 second. And ethereum DEX's experience thesame lag that all transactions on ethereumdo.
Currently at around 3 minutes.
While Stellar's 5 second ledger closing timemakes it likely the fastest DEX out there.
When you line up all thesefeatures, it becomes clear that the Stellar DEX is a winner,offering what users want with the exception of having alarge inventory of different tokens.
The small inventoryproblem can be fixed over time as more tokensare added.
All of this, the on ledger order book andsettlement, the match making, happens underthe hood in the Stellar network.
To interact with theStellar DEX, you must use the Stellar APIcalled Horizon if you are adeveloper. Or use aUI, a website or an appnot created by the Stellar development foundationlike StellarTerm if you aren't adeveloper.[silence]
