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.

We
 are the digital currency of the people.

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. 

[silence]

In theory banks are a good idea. Bob needs some extra money and he goes to his bank and the bank gives Bob the money and over time Bob pays it back plus some interest. Everyone wins, right?

Well not if you
 are Bob.

Banks understand how dependent
 people are on them, this makes them powerful and ensures they are the ones that make the rules. Rules that are in their best interest, not people like Bob.

Need a credit card? A small business
 loan? Glad to help. Just sign here, here and here. 

Want to show your crypto as part of your
 assets? Forget it Bob. Banks treat crypto like monopoly money. Why does it have to be like this?

It's time for a change.
 Some smart person once said, the world needs banking but it doesn't need banks. Banks generate obscene profits from taking your deposits and giving them out to borrowers. 

Celsius is different. We
 take crypto deposits and use them to lend dollars back to our community so that you our members can keep the profits, earn more interest and pay less for loans.

While banks focus on their own
 profits, our model is built on the community's best interest so that people like you, me and Bob can enjoy the financial freedom we all deserve.

With Celsius
 you can earn up to 5% interest on coins stored in your Celsius wallet. Think of it as your crypto savings account and when you need that dollar loan to let's say pay off your credit card or for a new business loan, you can use your crypto as collateral with a much lower interest rate.

Because it's an asset backed
 loan and you aren't selling your crypto, you won't have to pay tax right away. Meanwhile your coins are stored safely with our custodian and once your loan is paid off, your coins are returned.

Genius
 right?

Finally the 99%
 has a chance to turn the tables. We now have a way to bank that works for us, not against us.

Here is the cool part. If we bring
 100,000,000 people into crypto, we the people will be the ones in charge. Not the big banks. 

Welcome to banking on the
 blockchain. 
Distributed, open and extensible naming system
[music] [music] 

The ethereum name service
 announced via Twitter Monday January 14th that it has launched a fully redesigned ENS manager.

The ENS manager interface is built
 with non technical users in mind, allowing for individuals to search for names, manage addresses and create sub domains for names.

One community member noticed a possible
 issue with the apps address look up functionality. But ENS developer Jeff Lowe quickly addressed it. He even indicated that there are plans to later incorporate registration functionality into the manager.

Open-source medical encyclopedia
In the medical field the most up to date information saves lives every single day. But right now the best advice in medicine is locked up behind expensive paywalls. And not everyone can afford to pay for it.

The PeerAtlast blockchain exists
 for one purpose, to create and maintain a world class, peer reviewed, ad free medical library on your mobile compatible platform at no charge to the user.

We will eliminate the paywall that
 separates timely peer reviewed medical advice from physicians and the public.

Quality
 advice adds great value to care givers. Large publishing companies figured this out and have cornered the market.

Now they can set
 the prices, charge high subscription fees to create the best information. PeerAtlas's blockchain was created by American doctors. We believe that blockchain technology can replace paywall technology to spread the world's best medical advice across the internet.

These
 paywalls directly increase the already high cost of medical care. That's why we are out to change the status quo.

PeerAtlas'
 solution is an online subscription-free, ad-free platform.

It offers evidence based
 support for clinical decisions, primarily through the use of medical articles and algorithms. 

Healthcare providers around the globe can use our
 information to help them make the best decisions using the most recent discoveries researched by the brightest minds in medicine for their patients.

Medical algorithms are submitted both independently
 and collaboratively by qualified and verified individuals. They are then peer reviewed by teams of world renowned physicians, authors and editors.

It's a rigorous
 process designed to create evidence based recommendations using the most current medical information.

We will earn the trust of patients and their
 physicians along the way.

Our blockchain
 ledger will support the construction and maintenance of a complete and cutting edge library of medicine on our current online platform.

We aim to recruit the best physicians that our money can buy
 in every specialty.

Our
 library is intended to aid a wide community of medical professionals including specialists, general practitioners, physicians assistants, nurse practitioners and registered nurses.

And all of this information will be served to the
 general public without cost or advertisements. 

PeerAtlas will sign contracts with physicians
 to create its library at first while continually improving its user interface with blockchain bounties for developers.

Later a voluntary
 donation system using the PeerAtlas blockchain will benefit new content creators directly and motivate them to keep top quality advice flowing to patients.

Many ethical
 compromises present in some of today's finest medical resources are absent by design in PeerAtlas.

These conflict of interests
 include reliance on advertising revenue. Reliance on subscription revenue. Financial relationships with drug companies or the manufacturers of medical devices. And founders compromised by fiscal or ideological dependence.

PeerAtlas has taken steps to harness
 its powerful blockchain technology to reward qualified individuals that can help its mission in a transparent and ethical manner.

The mission of PeerAtlas is to instantly spread the most
 modern techniques and knowledge in healthcare, free of charge, worldwide.

We
 are looking for people who share our vision. People who want to change which patients are treated with the best available medical knowledge and techniques.

We are looking for people
 who want to save lives. 
Lisk will make it easy for developers to build..
[music] [music] 

Decentralized
 apps or dAPPS are super hot right now. Enormous sums of money and brain power are flowing into the sector, and very exciting things are happening.

But
 what a pity that it's so hard for beginnings to gain a foothold. Developing and bringing your dAPP to market was no walk in the park until now.

Say hello to
 Lisk, a platform for DAPPS and custom blockchains written in Javascript. Developers can build, publish, distribute and monetize their DAPPS using our custom built cryptocurrency powered system. 

Are you worried that it's too difficult or it's going to be a pain
 to learn all these new languages and toolkits? Not with Lisk.

We're doing it very differently.
 

You can write DAPPS for Lisk in Javascript, a
 language that over 100,000 coders are fluent in instead of new and unproven languages used by other projects.

It makes for a much lower barrier to entry
 and encourages rapid development cycles.

With Lisk, every decentralized
 application is running in its own side chain with no limits as opposed to a single bloated blockchain.

Lisk has a strong focus on
 an excellent user experience, making it accessible for everyone.

Do you want to sell your
 own dApp and rapidly turn your start-up into a successful business? With our integrated dApp store you can.

Are you ready for
 Lisk?

Get your share of Lisk in the
 ICO, it will only last a few weeks so this is your chance.

Lisk, changing the
 way you dAPP. 
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.

 modern wealth. Maximize with MaxiMine. 
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.

Bytecoin, a clear way

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.
