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.

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.
To learn morevisit us at bisq.io where you can find our roadmap andread our whitepaper,get in touch with us and of course download and try out Bisqitself.
Let me share with you a quick overview of Kyber Network.
Kyber is working towards a futurewhere any token is usable anytime,anywhere.
Today there are already1000s of different tokens and protocols.And we expect this number to explode over the nextfew years.
The innovation is obviously amazing.However there is one major problem that we need toaddress. The vast majority of thesetokens are used [inaudible] or for their ownspecific use cases leading to afragmented ecosystem where the usabilityof both tokens and applications are extremely limited.
What Kyber is doing is becomingthe bridge between the whole universe oftokens and applications and allowing thetokens to [inaudible] anywhere.
Forexample, for gold token holders, they should be ableto use the tokens to buy a t-shirt,to play video games or event invest in hedge funds. And of courseit's not just about gold tokens butany kind of tokens that one might hold.
Let meexplain a little bit on how thingswork. At the heart of Kyber, there is a decentralizedliquidity network which enablesanyone to openly contribute liquidityby being a reserve. And at the same time, anyapplications can freely integrate and have accessto the liquidity pool.
Tokens supportedby the network will become instantly usableacross all the integrated applications.
I know it sounds a little bit [inaudible], so let megive you a few examples.
Say you have a lot ofOMG tokens and you want touse them but your favorite t-shirt store only wants to acceptstablecoins. So once the storeintegrates with Kyber, youcan purchase a t-shirt using OMG or any token of yourchoice. [inaudible] willreceive the payment in their preferredtoken, be it DAI, ETHor TrueUSD.
This is possible because Kyber'sliquidity network supports instanttoken to token transactions.
Similarlyfor any decentralized financial applicationsincluding [inaudible] indexfund that have integrated with Kyber, you would then be able tocontribute to the fund in different tokens that areavailable on Kyber.
Inthe same [inaudible] the fund can instantlyrebalance its portfolio into its desired mix of tokens.
Everything is done on the smart contract and fullyon chain leading to a fully secure,transparent and verifiable financialsystem.
As you can see from these two simpleexamples, what Kyber focuses on isremoving as much frictionas possible for the uses of any kind oftokens across any kind of use case.
We doso by enabling three things. First of all makingit easy for any applications tointegrate with Kyber. Secondly,removing risk and uncertainty from every singletransaction. And lastly by making the wholeprocess transparent and secure.
We believe that theremoval of these barriers is critical for mainstreamadoption for decentralized applications.
We do not see a future in whichyou have to hold and buy 50 differenttokens to use 50 differentdApps. Token holders should be able to use any tokensthey have to access all the use casesavailable.
On the flip side, decentralizedapplications should dramaticallyexpand their user base by integratingwith Kyber and accepting any kind oftokens.
Let me end with some thoughts on howwe view the blockchain space today.
Firstoff we believe liquidity is not just abouttrading but liquidityreally boils down to usabilityor how [inaudible] tokens can be used across many differentapplications and use caseswith as little friction as possible.
When that isachieved, the entire decentralized ecosystem will beable to work much better together to realize its fullpotential.
Secondly,we believe that the first phase of the tokenizedworld really arrived when bitcoin created its own token as weknow it. Following ethereumisolated the evolution bymaking it easy for developers andasset holders to create the token withoutdeploying theirwhole new chain
Wherewe are now is a world that has an exploding number of tokens,[inaudible] as aresult, the next phase has to beone where tokens [inaudible]become usable and accepted in as many ways aspossible.
This is the future thatKyber is going towards. One where the decentralizedecosystem operates togetherseamlessly and where any tokensare usable any time,anywhere.[music]
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.
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.

Hey there it's Jordan. I'm thechief product officer at Totle. Today we are going to show you howeasy it is to trade crypto on theTotle platform.
We are going to pull up app.totle.comand we have an option of connecting to our MetaMaskwallet or our hardware wallet likeLedger or Trezor.
In this example we'veinstalled MetaMask. We funded it with a little bit ofEther and we are going to connect to this wallet.
Once connected toTotle, you get an overall picture of the contents of yourwallet. In this example I've got a number of tokens. If you are brandnew it'll just be ether.
On the left we see a pie chart representingall our allocations. In the centerhere we see a break down of eachtoken. The amount you hold in your wallet. The pricefor each and the percentage change in the last24 hours as well as the total value in USD.
We caneasily switch the drop down here. I like looking atUS Dollars.
What's really cool about Totle is the abilityto trade directly from your wallet right fromthe platform.
We tap the trade tab and think of it like editmode. We are able to make multiple trades right from ourwallet.
Let's say we want toincrease our position in SALT. But decrease ourposition in BAT. Witha couple slides of theslider, we are able to adjust our allocations.
Let's say welike these allocations. We want to lock that in and we hit next.
Here we can verify the details of our transaction. As youcan see it wants to sell BAT on EtherDeltaand Bancor and buy SALT on Kyber.
In this exampleour smart contract will go out and sell BATat these various exchanges, take theether and buy the SALT tokensacross Kyber.
Submit thistransaction. We confirm it in MetaMask.
So our smart contract goes out and executes the trades on your behalfacross multiple decentralized exchanges.
If we are interested in the transaction details, we can follow along onEtherscan, giving us more info on the transaction and when wecan expect it to complete.
Tokens never touch ourwallets. Ether never touches our wallets.It goes directly to the chain. Tokensgo right back into the user's wallet.

Peer-to-peer exchange of assets on the Ethereum blockchain
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.
