Zcoin - Private Financial Transactions
Zcoin is a digital cryptocurrency that puts financial privacy at the forefront where your transactions are completely untraceable.

It is built on the solid fundamentals
of the Zerocoin paper, one of the most cited cryptography papers' today.

Bitcoin
and most other cryptocurrencies are not really anonymous as all transactions since the founding of the coin are permanently open for the public to view.

Researchers,
governments and law enforcement agencies have made significant strides in using meta data and pattern analysis to reveal the real world identities of bitcoin holders.

This is a serious privacy
problem.

Imagine having all of your transaction history
and spending habits revealed or worse, innocently editing up with coins that have been tainted from illegal activities.

Not only is your
privacy at risk, your coins could be seized or you could even be implicated in crime you didn't commit.

Other attempts to anonymize transactions
involving mixing transactions with other people's transactions but this still means that the real transaction is somewhere in there. And its privacy is reliant on how many transactions you are mixing with.

These models still provide
an analyzable network map of links.

Zcoin uses zero knowledge proofs to
make truly untraceable coins.

You mint a coin by
burning it up and generate a mathematical proof that you burn it.

This proof allows you to redeem a new
coin with new previous transaction history. A clean slate.

The genius lays
in that the proof doesn't reveal which coin you minted, thus there is no relationship that can be drawn from the coin that you minted and the brand new coni that you redeemed.

No history to analyze. No mixing
required. Just truly untraceable coins.

Reclaim your digital financial
privacy.

Zcoin. Mint.
Spend. Repeat.
Web browser with ad blocker
The browsers of today are broken. They have been overtaken by a barrage of sneaking and annoying ads. Trackers that follow your habits and cookies that build profiles and all other sorts of internet clutter that is taking precidence over the content that you want to see.

In fact these
useless bytes can take up to a whopping 50% of page load times with a third of it anxiously trying to learn more about you.

To make
matters worse, some ad blockers are even letting ads through when large advertisers pay them.

But do you really want a leaky ad blocker?


It's because of these very reasons that we
developed Brave. A new browser that kicks internet crud to the curb and makes it faster, safer and better to surf the web than your current browser.

With Brave, everything you need is built right
in.

We integrated technology that automatically blocks
trackers, annoying ads and shields everything that can cramp your style and disrupt your privacy.

With it you can expect increased speeds almost
2x faster on laptops and up to 4x faster on mobile. And unlike any other browser, Brave allows you to support your favorite publishers with automatic micro payments.

It's a win win for you and your favorite
sites.

To top it all off, Brave is open source
because we truly believe it's our web and we need to fix it together.

Ask yourself this
question, do you want a web browser made for the internet of today?

If so, try Brave. It's faster.
Safer and ad free. [silence]
æternity is a scalable blockchain platform
Welcome to the internet of value. Meet Aeternity.

What
is Aeternity? Aeternity is a new blockchain platform that solves the issues of scalability, privacy and transaction speed.

Built by an experienced
team, Aeternity is a next generation technology that takes the lessons from big projects like Bitcoin and Ethereum.

What makes Aeternity different from other
blockchains?

Aeternity has
several unique features that make it different from other blockchains. The technology aims to be ready for mainstream adoption by providing three key elements.

One, state
channels. Users interact with each other instantly and privately. Your business interactions are kept off chain without having to expose your transactions or smart contracts publicly.

This
also keeps the blockchain light and robust for years.

There is no limit to the volume of transactions being
processed at the same time. Aeternity is lightening fast.

Two, the hybrid proof of
work and proof of stake system. Consensus is achieved by proof of work, this means that people can mine the tokens on almost all devices including smart phones.

This is truely decentralized mining.

The governance
mechanism runs a proof of stake model based on prediction markets.

Three, the
oracle machine. Oracle machines allow you to connect real world data to smart contracts. Any publicly available data can be integrated such as election results, weather conditions, sport event results, and commodity prices like gold and oil.

This
open up the field for major use cases. Think of financial applications, supply chain management, information markets, insurance and gaming.

Combining these three elements,
Aeternity breaks the bottleneck to even further adoption of blockchain technology with countless use cases and payment solutions, trade finance, and the internet of things.

How is
Aeternity unique?

Aeternity will come with the
essential applications available at the launch of the platform, making it immediately useful.

Aeternity is working on educational programs
to support businesses and developers to find their own use cases.

An incubator foundation
will support projects that build upon the Aeternity platform.

Aeternity, a light
and secure platform to bring the blockchain technology to the next level.

The modern internet
We've always lived in a smart world. Our societies, our art, our ecosystems, our universe itself all made of vast complex networks designed for interconnection, growth and innovation.

Then
this happened.

That really started speeding things
up.

The internet,
originally conceived as a decentralized smart network with no central authority, made it possible to communicate directly all over the world. But it wasn't built to evolve as it did. And while our smart world advanced, the internet stayed in the past.

As it expanded, its
vulnerabilities become more serious, more prevalent.

Data. The life blood of the internet became
centralized. Stored on servers owned by giant corporations, easily found vulnerable to attack. Making our devices easily hacked no matter how smart they became.

We
didn't lose the internet. We lost our internet.

Elastos is the modern
internet.

Elastos has rebuilt the
infrastructure of the internet from the ground up, creating the world's first open source network operating system.

This is an operating system for the internet itself that is
completely decentralized and it can be installed directly onto anything and everything smart.

Every person,
every device, every business, every thing can be directly interconnected into one massive global super computer. Each given their own secure identity that must be verified by the blockchain before accessing the network.

Enabling an internet of security
instead of vulnerability.

An internet
where central servers no longer exist. An internet where everyone owns and controls their own data.

Simultaneously creating the world's
first platform for the secure internet and data economy powered by the applications of the future and the people who build them.

Because the platform is designed to run literally on any
smart device, developers can seamlessly write, install or integrate existing applications onto Elastos using their own secure side chain allowing people and machines alike to have direct exchange of the next global currency.

Elastos.
Smart web powered by blockchain.
Blockchain-based transportation platform
DAV distributes system on steroids.

It's laying the protocol, the foundation for the transportation
industry.

It's a combination of the technologies
I care deeply about.

Drones are one
element. Blockchain is another element. And distributed and trusted ecosystem in a trustless environment.

DAV is an open transportation protocol. It enables us for the first
time to create an open source peer to peer global transportation network.

This network
includes anything and anyone involved in moving people and objects from place to place.

Everyone on the DAV Network can discover services within the
network. For example riders can discover drivers and drivers can discover charging stations. And developers can use the open protocol to introduce their unique value to the network in the form of route planning, machine learning, data sharing.

The opportunities this network can create are
endless.

Looking a bit further down the road, the Dav Network
is an ideal entry point for the vehicles of the next decade which are autonomous vehicles on the ground, in the air and on the water.

The future is definitely autonomous.


If you had to summarize the future of transportation in
one word, it's going to be autonomous.

Being able to do true
autonomous operations is what's becoming the big push these days.

I can
predict that the autonomous world will expand.

Once autonomous
vehicles enter the market, you are no longer hiring the driver inside the car. You are hiring the car. And this brings up a lot of interesting challenges.

For example, how do you get a quote and agree on a
transaction with a car or with a drone?

How the vehicles compete for your business?

This is a completely new
market and this is where the DAV protocol comes in.

It connects vehicles and users and
services, creating one big network so that we can each have an entire network of on demand vehicles at our disposal.

It also
enables anyone to purchase equipment that is compatible with the protocol and make it available on the network in return for tokens.

For anyone that joins the
network, whether they are taxi companies, delivery companies or simply someone who owns a drone, having a unified open protocol means they don't need to be a multi national corporation to have utility.

The DAV
protocol connects them to a global network of riders and drivers and vehicles and developers and chargers.

The number of useful
combinations within the network is exponential.

The
advantages of a decentralized network like that is that it allows true market competition and doesn't leave all the benefit and all the upside to one central entity.

I firmly believe not a single entity
has all the elements to win. Nobody can eat alone. You have to share the pie.

Companies now have a choice. Instead of creating an
entire network, an entire ecosystem from scratch, they can focus on their core product and use the DAV protocol to become a part of an existing network using completely open standards and without paying any fees.

The whole idea of the
internet was to break the middleman. And DAV is to the future of transportation of what TCPIP was to the internet.

The most exciting thing that I
see is the ability for DAV to be the key enabler of internet transport.

The DAV network is
expanding as more and more companies join. The DAV platform is already being integrated into some of their vehicles.

I believe no single technology is going to
succeed on its own. It's always going to be some mix of technologies.

Got to have a way [inaudible]
transportation systems whatever they may be. So it's a combination of getting the players who do the best join in each of those pieces to come in and work together.

I invite everyone to join our
growing community and take part in the future of transportation.

Decred
Autonomous Digital Currency
Today's digital currencies don't scale and suffer from disruptive hard forks. Hard forks can result in lose of investor funds. They also damage investor confidence and can lead to attacks.

Decred
was built to solve these problems. A hybrid proof of work, proof of stake system ensures that no group can master the flow of transactions or make changes without input from the community.

Decred is the only
decentralized self ruling currency where everyone has a real voice.

Decred gives
participants the tools necessary to make decisions about the technical direction of the currency. All participants have a say in its future direction, budget and which projects are developed and presented for vote.

We believe that striking a
balance between infrastructure owners and currency holders is the only way to build a robust currency now and for the long term.

Decred has shown resilience where others have
failed. Thanks to our modular platform, that allows us to integrate new features without disrupting the service.

Decred's transparency and scalability has not
gone unnoticed. We won accolades from fellow developers, industry experts and the media.

Launched in February
of '16, we are completely independent, community funded, community owned.

Decred is engineers,
artists, entrepreneurs.

Decred is a global community that
believes in financial independence and community based governance.

We are the
currency of choice for anyone who wants to take charge of their financial lives.

Energi
Cryptocurrency for world adoption
Evolution is behind all great achievements. It has allowed us to go from ideas, to space.

It has empowered
us to turn our dreams into reality.

Today
distributed ledger technology is the most sophisticated phenomenon in the evolution in the digital world. It is the future.

Energi is the first cryptocurrency
that brings together some of the most powerful ideas in cryptocurrency.

Division
beyond just the technical infrastructure.

We are talking about something that is expansionary at
its core and this goes beyond common features such as improving on transaction speed, mass scalability, low fees.

Energi
has all of these but the truly game changing proposition here is Energi's decentralized governance and treasury system. And that's a system that not only makes Energi self sustaining but is also a self re-enforcing phenomenon.

That's the
evolution of cryptocurrency.

Essentially it's a healthy growth snowball
effect. As awareness increases, so does its treasury economic power and so does adoption fueled by it.

An organization to be
self funding, to be able to propel itself and pay its developers, pay its team and to do so in an accelerating way where every dollar you invest in the organization yields to a dollar of greater growth.

It's a positive
feedback loop.

The development, the marketing, the operations,
the expansion... A self funded treasury that is well directed is an incredibly powerful machine.

You are
creating no longer just a cryptocurrency but a living, breathing organization. Something that can be as powerful as world governance.

Open source project driven by the community
What is NEO? In this video I will be going over the basics of this cryptocurrency.

NEO was developed by a blockchain
R&D company called onchain. Launched in 2014 as Antshares, it was rebranded as NEO in 2017.

NEO
focuses on innovating in the areas of digital asset transfer, smart contracts and digital identity verification.

The NEO
platform consists of two currencies, NEO and GAS both of which are capped at 100 million units.

NEO is the pre mined
currency which represents a share of the network. It cannot be divided below one coin like most other currencies.

GAS is the fuel that drives
smart contracts on the NEO network. Deploying and running smart contracts consumes gas proportional to the computing power used.

New GAS is generated
with each block. The amount generated is reduced by one token every 2 million blocks. Once the 100 million cap is reached, no new GAS will be created.

Unlike NEO,
GAS may be sub divided into much smaller units.

Collected GAS is distributed to holders of NEO
coin based on their share of the network on a fixed schedule.

GAS for transaction fees are
distributed to bookkeepers also known as consensus nodes in exchange for validating transactions on the network.

Every NEO coin
holder has a vote. Coin holders elect consensus nodes who validate transactions, create blocks and make decisions for the blockchain such as creating transaction fees.

If
a consensus node is not acting in the interest of the network, coin holders can vote out that node.

Much like
ethereum, NEO supports smart contracts. Smart contracts allow code to run on the network which imposes logic and rules on the transfer of funds.

Simple examples of
smart contracts include locking funds until a package is delivered. Or releasing cryptocurrency royalties to a content owner each time a digital item is consumed.

One of the
differences between NEO and ethereum is ethereum applications are coded in a proprietary language called Solidity whereas NEO applications support commonly used langues such as java, C# and VB.Net.

Notable items in the
NEO pipeline are NEO X which will allow transactions across blockchains. NeoFS which will allow for decentralized storage of files and NeoQ which will allow for a quantum resistant cryptographic methods within the NEO system.

Fully interoperable blockchain ecosystem
Komodo aims to be the new standard for cryptocurrency security and anonynimity.

Protected by Zcash zero knowledge proofs,
users can make 100% untraceable transactions, secured by bitcoin's petahash computational power.

Komodo is the first cryptocurrency
to come up with a delay proof of work consensus mechanism.

Using this
bullet proof security system, Komodo is able to provide anonymous transactions that are protected by Zcash's zero knoweldge proof and secured by bitcoin's seal of approval.

Komodo
makes bitcoin more efficient by recycling its computational power to secure Komodo's blockchain.

Years of research by the
BTCD development team have led to the creation of Komodo.

Built on the same principles that
BTCD was created on, anonynimity and security.

BTCD users will be able to
swap their holdings for Komodo.

The ICO will start on the 15th of October
and will last for 5 weeks until the 20th of November.

As usual, in the Komodo
ICO, the early bird gets the worm. Early investors can get up to 25% bonus.

Komodo
will use 2 of 3 multi signature cold storage addresses to store the funds during and after the ICO.

The collected funds will be sent to a single
address once a certain threshold has reached.

That's how
Komodo works.

Come and join us via our ICO
happening on October 15th, 2016.

See you
there.
Decentralize the web
TRON, a new world. What does a virtual civilization of the future look like?

It is decentralized.
Independent. Self governed. Equal. Cooperative.

It has high performance.

The TRON
ecosystem wins at speed. Each TRON data unit can evolve and become part of the ecosystem. It is democratic.

Every member of the TRON
community can vote for their leader of choice to govern the ecosystem.

Global
developers around the world create outstanding apps every day, building a virtual world.

The moment we've been waiting for
is finally here.

The future is
now.

TRON, decentralize the web.
One APK, Multiple App Stores.
Mobile apps are eating the world. By 2020 the number of smart phone users is expected to double. Gross revenue earned by the mobile app market is estimated to reach $100 billion by the same year.

Yet the apps economy still presents three main challenges.


First advertising is
inefficient. There are several intermediaries between the developer and the user, reducing transparency and the potential return for developers.

Secondly,
in app purchases are still not accessible to many users and payment intermediaries increase overall costs.

Lastly app approval is not
transparent. It's still difficult to confirm the identity of developers and there is no universal approach used by app stores.

What
if there was a solution that could tackle these challenges by reinventing the apps economy?

[inaudible] has
been working on this for the past five years. And today with smart contracts, we are going to unlock all of those values in app distribution and app monetization for the developers.

This
solution is AppCoins, an open and distributed protocol for app stores. Using blockchain technology and smart contracts, it's the new universal language of the app economy based on the ethereum network.

How? Let's imagine that it
all starts with an app developer investing in cost per install advertising. With the AppCoins model, advertising intermediaries are no longer present. The only margins [inaudible] are for the app store and for the manufacturer.

If the user installs the
app, he or she will earn AppCoins that can be spent on in app purchases.

Furthermore with the App Coin
protocol, the reputation of the app developers comes from their transactional history across stores.

All information is stored on
the blockchain, making app approval automated across app stores.

When it comes to in app purchases,
AppCoins spent by users will also generate bigger margins for the developer since payment intermediaries are not present anymore.

In addition, users with no
payment methods can now receive AppCoins from other users and purchase in app items for the first time.

Disruption happens when we apply a new technology
to an old problem. The new technology here is the blockchain. The old [inaudible] financial transactions inside the app store.

It's a problem that
affects billions of uses. And sometimes they don't even realize and that's the challenge for AppCoins.

Overall there is an open, circular and shared
protocol that creates a trusted environment for all parties.

For developers, a transparent and efficient way to
monetize their apps and build a reputation across app stores.

For users, a trusted environment
with new purchasing possibilities and incentives to discover apps.

For app stores, an app economy
with a new universal language that ensures trust without intermediaries.

Blockchain and
cryptocurrencies bring our platform to the next level. We always had this vision of a truly open and decentralized platform for apps distribution. And of course these technologies enable it.

We are now
very excited that [inaudible] is going to use decentralized technology and using the blockchain to really bring crypto technology to the huge userbase of 200 million users.

Ardor is an Advanced Blockchain Technology
[silence] [silence] [silence] [silence]

Ardor is a multi blockchain platform with a unique
architecture that separates the network processing and security chain known as the Ardor parent chain from the transactional chains.

These transactional chains known as
child chains have their own native coin for all transactions and thus don't require their users to have parent chain coins.

Being built on NXT
technology, each child chain is pre fitted with the features found on the NXT blockchain such as the ability to issue assets, trade them on an asset exchange, run public or private polls, set conditional transactions, setup multisig security or send encrypted messages.

Among many
others, through a simple user interface as well as through a powerful API, however all transactions are still processed and secured by the parent chain. This is facilitated by the help of the bundling system where accounts can be set to collect transaction fees and child chain coins.

While paying
the transaction fees to the parent chain in its own coin.

Since child chain transactions are processed by the parent
chain, it's possible for the different chains to interact with each other such as sending and receiving coins or assets from different child chains.

This allows for a great deal of interoperabiilty
among the different child chains, opening up even more potential use cases.

This unique architecture
also enables Ardor to address the scalability issues found on every blockchain, known as the blockchain bloat problem.

This refers to the growing blockchain
size as it gets used thus making it more resource intensive to run a full node to support the blockchain network as well as to join it.

Jelurida, the development team behind Ardor addresses this problem by implementing
full node pruning where transactional data on child chains is regularly removed from the full nodes on the Ardor parent chain after a snapshot is taken of its most recent state.

Thus reducing the blockchain size without
affecting the balances and on-going transactions on each chain. And the security of the whole platform.

However, full nodes can opt in to become archival
nodes for specific child chains and store the historical data of these chains.

With all these benefits and features, as well as new ones continually being developed
by Jelurida, Ardor aims to be one of the top choices for companies and organizations to address their blockchain needs.
