Hi I'm [inaudible] which inGreek mythology means wise centaur. But thatdoesn't matter right now. Get!
What does matter is I'mCTO of Adbank. What's Adbank? Let me show you.
Right now if you area digital advertiser, you give your money to a middle manand he takes a huge chunk of it and gives the rest to a publisher.
Adbank is the new platform that gets rid of thisguy. Come on guys, take it. It's yours, grab it!Don't be shy!
How do we do it?
A peer to peer advertising platform built on the blockchain.
Don't know what the blockchainis? Ask your nerdiest friend.
The blockchain is adecentralized...
How does this work without the middle man?
You know how Uber doesn't own any cars, they built a platformthat connects people together directly.
Well it would be so cliche to say we are theUber of digital advertising so I won'tsay it. But I'll singit.
We're the Uberof [inaudible] advertising.
I hate it when people say that.
So why does that matter?Well we are 100%transparent. Open source and fully auditable.
Hey Adbank, did we say how much we charge? Yup it's on theblockchain. What about you middleman?I won't tell you.
Whydoes transparencymatter? Fraud, fraud,fraud. 56% of all website traffic isbots. 56%, that's overhalf. That means right now you are paying for pantsbut you are getting pantsed.Stop getting pant robbed.
Get both pant legs now andwe are going to do it. How?
Artificial intelligence plus the blockchain allows us todifferentiate between bots and genuinepeople.
That means with Adbank you canstop paying to show your ads to theseguys and start showing them to theseguys.
How do you accept lots of cash?
Plus we are Canadian. So we are stopping fraudsterswithout every raising ourvoice.
If you like having more cash and you don't like being defraudedand you want to know exactly where your money isgoing, then voila -- Adbank.
You can trust mebecause my name means wise centaur.
Decentralized communications protocol for journalists and citizens
The journalism industry today is on adangerous path. There is really only a handful of ways topay for the news.
Journalism is sometimesreferred to as the first draft of history.
This is a sacred institutionthat is facing an existential threat like never before.
Papers have been closing and downsizing for years and that affects all ofus.
The world is changing. Technology introducesnew challenges, new opportunities.
Youneed a radically new business model or we are going to seejournalism be eradicated.
We are using blockchain andcrypto economics to pursue thatend.[music][music][music]
I am Matthew Iles, I'm the CEO of the Civic Media Company. Our mission is to create anetwork committed to the cause of independent sustainablejournalism around the world.
The funding models ofjournalism have been eroding aroundus for the last 20 years or so. The internet wronglytaught us that stuff should be free.And then you monetize the attention that you've accruedto 3rd party advertisers.
Print advertising, digitaladvertising,a lot of those have basically disappeared. And local newsorganizations are under terrible duress.
It's systematically starved entireswaves of populations from having realcritical information about what's happeningaround them.
That's not conducive to serving citizensand finding and reporting on under reported stories.
We need to flip thisincentive model on its head and that's what we are tryingto do at Civil.
When I first thought ofCivil, I wanted to create a decentralized marketplace for sustainablejournalism, having no idea how to actually buildit.
And then I discoveredblockchain.
The point of Civil is to take the big media companyout of the equation.
We are trying to effectivelyrewrite the technology stack of the entire journalismindustry from the bottom up in a permanent and publiclyowned manner.
I'm passionate about journalismbecause of what it means to afree and open and just society. But as an entrepreneur,I'm obsessed with the business model problem.I think it's one of the most wicked business model problems that any industry isfacing.
Public trust in the media is ata historic low today. We think there is an opportunityto build a new model quite literally from the ground upthat prioritizing the process that goes into reporting thesestories and that provides a new level of transparency toreaders.
Civil provides journalists with the toolsthey need to build sustainable businesses.
From subscriptionbusinesses to crowd funding models and beyond,businesses that prioritize the process of quality journalism.
We are recruiting a community that will govern the platform and will ensure thatpublishers on Civil are always adhering to the highest journalisticstandards.
Civil is built on the ethereumblockchain. This is as much as anything a decentralizedpublicly owned concept. So weneed to get ourselves out of the way as rapidly as possible. And we are usingtechnology called tokens to do that.
The Civil token is a consumer token. It is avoting stake on the platform.
Token holderswill have a vote on who can publish on Civil and will play apivotal role in holding them accountable with economicincentives built right into the technology.
It's a unique opportunityto shape the future of journalism and help preserve it forgenerations to come.
We can't do this withoutyou. We can't do this without distributing our tokens to as many mission alignedpeople, journalists, organizations aspossible.
The first set of news rooms that havesigned onto Civil are known as the firstfleet. They've been in the trenches of journalism.They have seen the problems of makinggood quality news and journalismin the 21st century.
Civil is seeking to be a platformfor us, not a publisher.
The journalism you see up heretoday are the owners of the ColoradoSun and we will be the ones calling the shots.
Civil has deliberatelychosen to focus its initial news rooms on local,international, investigative and policyjournalism.
We have a ton of news rooms that we are launching with that we are really excited about.
When you encounter a news room on Civil,you'll know that that news room has committedto publish according to the purpose,values, working standards of our platform which is called theCivil Constitution.
The point of the Civil Constitution isto make sure that we all have a common understandingso that we can have a generally agreed uponframework that any news room, anyjournalism on the platform agrees to abide by.
The Civil Media Company is not the arbiterof whether or not you are doing that, the public is.
We are at the very beginningof what we think is a long road but it's onewe believe will inject new life into journalism at acritical time and ensure it survives andthrives long intothefuture.
AdEx is a decentralized advertisingplatform aimed at changing the online advertising landscape aswe know it.
AdEx makes life easierfor all the parties that participate in the advertising process.
First, we would like to introducepublishers. Publishers can sign up to AdEx to better monetizetheir websites. They will generate revenuedepending on how many clicks the ads achieve andwill verify ad delivery so advertisers only pay forreal impressions.
They will have the option toaccept or decline bids and will have full controlover what ads appear on their site.
But most importantlythey will be dealing directly withadvertisers with no middlemen.
In order to purchase ad space, advertiserswill need ADX tokens that they can purchase withfiat currency. Advertisers canalso use detailed targeting to reach the right audiencefor their services or products.
Our platform makes sureto deliver the ads to real people,only so the ad fraud possibilities are minimized.
Andfinally advertisers budgets gocompletely to publishers with no middlemen in betweenand with no fees or commissions paidto AdEx.
And our last party,the users.
AdEx allows users to regain controlover their privacy and to get meaningful,targeted ads.
AdEx is a platformmade to improve online advertising experience.No more extra fees. No more unclearreporting. And no more unwantedads.
There are so many ways ofsharing files out there but all of them have onesignificant drawback. Users get nothing inreturn when they seemingly share their files withothers.
Imagine a file sharing platformthat rewards you with cryptocurrency forsharing files.
Upfiring is an Ethereum blockchainbased platform for sharing, seeding and downloadingfiles. With Upfiringall the nodes in the network can communicate with one anotherdirectly and without any intermediaries.
Unlike traditional file sharing P2P networks,Upfiring administers and governsall transactions using smart contracts.
This provides decentralized control overfile encryption, authentication and ensure the ease ofinformation sharing.
Usersreceive UFR tokens for adding files to thesystem and seeding them.
You can use your UFRtokens to download files from other users andsend them to crypto exchanges to convert them intoother cryptocurrencies.
Do you want to join usin shaping the future of file sharing?
Technology today isamazing. But somehow streamingquality and load times are still terrible.
Everyone has a computer with extra bandwidthto spare, especially when a machine is not beingused. And now you can make money butputting that bandwidth to use thanks toTheta token.
Here is how it works. When you are watching yourfavorite streamer or when you area sleep, Thetaclient will tap into your extra bandwidth to relayvideo streams to local viewers.

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.

Various tiers grant a tokenpayout of the actual cryptocurrency backing Refereum.This is a shared pool system that sends an equal amount oftokens to everyone in that tier.
For example, if 500 people were in bronzethen everyone will receive 1000 tokens. To keep thingsrevolving, seasons last a various length andgive users a limited time to move up the tiers beforepoints reset and they start all over inthe new season.
Tokens can be used to buy games and merch,so the utilization of this system is quitehigh because of the integration and size of the communitythey are targeting, Refereum should only continue to buildmomentum.
That's why it's very important to follow the instructions on theaccount page and set an ETH deposit address to claim thetoken distributions.
We would recommend MyEtherWalletdue to its versatilityin holding many different ERC20 coins like Refereum.
To simplify the process, MyEtherWallet recommendsusing their Google Chrome extension to be able to view your altcoinholds with ease of access.
