  • The Securities Token Platform
    ICOs haveraised more than $4 Billion worth of early stagecapital, massively disrupting traditionalfinance. But while token fundraising is a boomingtrend, the global securities market has yet to participate.

    Stocks, bonds,
    venture capital, private equity and virtuallyevery category of traditional finance function better on the blockchain.

    Equity, LP shares and share units
    will become programmable tokens that are moreaccessible, liquid and secure than traditional forms ofasset ownership.

    But no platform exists
    today that bridges the cap between financial securitiesand the blockchain.

    Today business looking
    to join the crypto-revolution by launching their owntoken have nowhere to go.

    Enter Polymath.

    Polymath envisions a
    future where tokenholders replace shareholdersin the global economy and every business in theworld has immediate access to trillions of dollars ofcrypto-capital.

    Powered by its native
    token Poly, Polymath is ushering in a newera of security token offerings or STOs.

    STOs will soon dominate ICOs
    as financial products of all sorts upgrade to tokens.

    To facilitate this
    mega trend, Polymath is building the world'sfirst decentralized protocol that empowers corporationsto launch their own security token by simplifyingthe technical and legal challenges of a compliant tokenlaunch.

    With KYC aware token technology,
    Polymath ensure only authorizedinvestors can participate in thenetwork.

    By powering the next generation of regulatory
    tokens, Polymath aims to be the catalyst to launchthe multi trillion dollar security token revolution.

    Let the stampede begin.

    Digital gold standard
    What if I told you there was a new digitalcoin that married the best aspects of currentcryptocoins with the safety and stability of gold,the oldest continuous store of value known to humanity.

    Cryptocoins in their current form have two major
    drawbacks. One, volatility.You simply cannot reliably transact with a cointhat has more short-term price volatility than competingtraditional options.

    Centralization. If you
    have a single point of failure such as a bigdepot where a large amount of coins are stored, criminalswill find a way to exploit that weakness, hack through thesecurity and steal the coins.

    But what if you could eliminate that
    price volatility by tying a digital cointo an asset that has real, stable andhistorical value like gold.

    What if that gold digital
    coin was traded person to person without any centralizedintermediary like a bank or other institution inthe way.

    You would have created a
    revolution in digital coins.

    This is
    exactly what Digix has done.

    Digix has
    taken all of the innovative realitiesin a current digital coin, the blockchain, transactionalprivacy, minimal transfer fees and backedit up with the world's oldest and longest standingstore of value, gold.

    With the Digix
    tokens, you own actual physical gold stored in avault in Singapore, one of the world's safestand most private locations in the world.

    You can redeem
    your Digix tokens for physical gold any time youwish. Or you can trade your digital gold backedDigix tokens on the Ethereum blockchainfor goods, services or other digital assets.

    And because Digix tokens are transacted
    person to person, there is no centralized depot forcriminals or hackers to exploit.

    So if you have a
    family member that you want to send money to, Digix tokens give you away to send value to them that can go acrossthe world without any bank or other intermediarygetting in the way.

    Or if you have a business online or you are
    an artist selling your art work, with Digixtokens you can accept payment from anyone, anywhere inthe world without the hassle of dealing with banks or paying their bloatedfees.

    Digix tokens are the next evolution
    of digital coins, marrying the best of thenew way of sending value person to person,anywhere in the world, instantly without any intermediary.

    And with the stability and peace of mind
    of the world's oldest currency,gold.
    Unbank the banked
    OmiseGO is one of thoseprojects that so many people areexcited about.

    [music]
    [music]

    We are building a decentralized
    exchange network that's going to connect different payment systemstogether.

    [music]
    [music][music][music][music]

    My name is
    Casima and I'm the director of engineering for Plasma here at OmiseGO.

    So what is Plasma?
    Plasma is basically an architectureframework for scaling blockchains.

    The goal is to be able to do billions of state updates
    per second on this network which is publicallyaccountable on the public chain.

    The nice thing about Plasma
    is it doesn't require any changes to the ethereum base layer.So pretty much anyone can spin off a Plama system whenever.

    This version is working on the official
    [inaudible] network that is created by OmiseGO.It supports ERC20 tokens.

    What do you do have OmiseGO?
    I'm taking care of the [inaudible]. That sounds like a bigresponsibility. Yes.

    So
    we are OmiseGO the big core challenge we are trying toaddress is financial inclusion. How do you make paymentsthrough wallets available toeveryone in aneasy to understand manner.

    I think what's missing a lot in the blockchain
    space is how doyou just make it accessible to normal people?And I think [inaudible] in terms of the identity and KYCand key management, those are all going to helpaddress a lot of [inaudible] issues.

    I
    looked at OmiseGO last summer when I saw thatVitalik was meeting with the Central Bank of Thailand.The more I learned about OmiseGO, the morethe [inaudible] pervious work and really resonated with me.

    [music]
    [music][music]

    I was sold. I really wanted to be a part of this
    project.

    the first application to enable open,competitive and decentralized digital asset managementsolutions. As well as quick visibility and access to theperformance of other asset managers.

    With Melonport,
    anyone will be able to easily setup and customize a portfolioon the blockchain using a Melon friendlyinterface and we really do mean anyone.

    Melonport
    reduces management costs. Most fixed coststraditionally incurred when managing portfolios areeliminated by Melon smart contracts which automateoperations such as clearing and settlement, performancemonitoring and broadcasting your validated trackrecord.

    Melonport leverages the visibility
    and transparency inherent to blockchains,so that performance can be tracked giving talented managers theopportunity to be sought out and rewarded.

    So whether you are an
    individual or saver managing your own personaldigital portfolio or a large institutional assetmanager acting on behalf of 100s of clients,Melonport can radically simplify your workload,lower your costs and grow your reputation.

    The Melon
    protocol is split into two parts. Thecore and an open ever expanding universe of useful modules.

    Melon Core links all asset management functions together
    and enables all transactions to be possible.

    Melon Modules are optional customized functions
    selected by the portfolio manager.

    There are two ways you
    can take part in Melonport's excitingjourney.

    Anyone can contribute in the upcoming
    pre-sale of a fixed supply of Melon tokens to fund our nextdevelopment phase which is building out a full suiteof robust, secure asset management tools.

    You'll be able to use the core protocol by paying in Melon tokens.


    Developers can also build Melon modules
    and earn Melon tokens proportionate to the value that their modulesadd to the network. The more useful their modules, the moregreater the rewards.

    This adds to a network
    effect where the interest of tokenholders, developers and portfolio managers arebeautifully aligned, re-enforcing one another.

    That's the beauty of Melonport. Bringing it all
    together.[silence][silence]
    Decentralized future contracts
    Introducing0xFutures, the first peer to peer platformto trade future contracts running on the blockchain.

    Meet Paul. Paul is a developer who gets paid in
    bitcoin. Paul loves his bitcoin but he hatesto see the price go up and down especially whenit goes down. He would love to have a way to stabilizehis bitcoin holding and to keep the same value overtime.

    Meet Lucy. Lucy is a
    mega crypto enthusiast and really thinks that this thing isgoing to the moon. So she would liketo put her crypto to work to take aleveraged position.

    If the price
    moves, she will make even more money.

    Enter
    0xFutures which is a fullydecentralized trading platform where Paul and Lucycan create a smart contract that will track theprice of any asset. Bitcoin,ethereum, gold or anything elsereally.

    In their case it will be bitcoin.


    With 0xFutures, every future contract is a
    smart contract running on the ethereum blockchain between the twoparticipants. This means that the funds arenot held by a 3rd party but bythe smart contract itself.

    This makes 0xFutures
    decentralized, peer to peer andtrustless.

    Here is how it works.

    Let's say that
    Paul wants to create a contractthat tracks the price of bitcoin. He can either be long if hethinks that the price is goingup or be short if he thinks the price is going to go down.

    Since
    he wants to stabilize his bitcoin holdings,he will be on the short side. He then sets the contractamount, that's the money that is inplay.

    0xFutures uses the DAI as
    collateral. The DAI is a stable token that doesn'tfluxuate over time. One DAI isworth $1.

    Let's say he sets the contract
    amount to be 100 DAI which is the equivelentof $100.

    So Paul creates a
    smart contract using 0xFutures that will beliving on the ethereum blockchain.

    Now Lucy
    wants to join this contract and takePaul's opposite position by goingon the long side.

    If the price of
    bitcoin goes up by let's say30%, then Lucy who is long will be up by 30%.

    If in the contrary the price of bitcoin goes
    down by X%, then it'sPaul who will see his share increase by the sameamount.

    At some point Paul may want to take his profit or loss
    and release his DAI's from the contract.He can do so by selling his side of the contract to anotheruser who will replace him.

    Once the contract has
    been rolled, Paul receives his fundsheld in the contract directly to his wallet.

    With
    0xFutures, every trade is its own smartcontract on the ethereum blockchainbetween two people.

    There is no custodian,
    no centralized system and no counterpartyrisk.

    Start today.
    Contract wallet paired with a debit card
    Forasmuch potential that peopel say blockchain and cryptocurrency has,we aren't seeing a lot of that materialize as itstands. Because the spaceis an absolute mess. Something needsto change before this technology breaks into themainstream.

    This is exactly what we are trying to do
    with Token.

    I
    was first introduced to bitcoin by achildhood friend of mine who was a realtechnologist. And this for me was amoment where it clicked. Maybe this bitcoin thingcould actually change something.

    I took the big step to leave
    university to pursue something in theindustry.

    Myself
    and [inaudible] met in Taiwan. I think we really connectedbecause he essentially opened my eyes to what was possiblewith the advent ofethereum.

    There were these very early ethereum projects like Digix
    and Maker who were making tokensthat we thought could really impact the livesof people across the world.

    Myself
    and Mal had multiple ideas ofthings we could do with ethereum but TokenCard justmade sense on a practical levelbecause it was something that was currently neededwithin this space.

    I mean an actual way to use
    tokens.

    There is this massive
    [inaudible] between people like us and the rest of the world who can't use thisstuff. What we wanted to do wastry and build a bridge to cross that[inaudible].

    We had a few initial conversations
    with VCs. I'd say at the time we were way tooearly for traditional funding routes becauseethereum wasn't a concept that waswell understood. Blockchain was just sort ofbecoming the buzzword withinfinance.

    Thankfully we had a bit of a plan
    B where we thought the onlypeople in the world who cared as much abour our idea that we did was theethereum community itself.

    Our idea resonates
    so well with almost everyone inthis space that it only took a few weeks for usto build a very strong community.

    If you think about how start-ups
    normally get funded, you would haveoversight over how you are using funds andchannels to make sure that you are building your businessproperly.

    So we're being very patient with how we are
    building, making sure we hire the right people.And that we don't fall into a lot ofpitfalls that potentially you could fall intowith this level of independence.

    Ultimately
    what we are trying to doat token is we are trying to lead a crusade.One where people willbe able to unplug from the old systems and to takecontrolof their own financialdestiny.
    Credit on the blockchain
    The traditional credit system hasconnected lenders and borrowers for decades. Evaluatingcredit risks, limits and logistics but alsoadding lots of beaurocracy, geographiclimitations and excluded the unbanked from the financialsystem.

    With the internet, new peer to peer
    loans accelerated the process and reducedcosts. But the risk was still too big for the lenderand credit lending was still assymetric.

    We've
    created a solution and it's called Ripio CreditNetwork.

    Ripio Credit Network is a protocol based
    on smart contracts and blockchaintechnology that opens the door to global credit. Connectinglenders and borrowers with RCN tokens which allowlendings on any currency, anywhere in the world.

    The network works like this. The borrower
    makes a credit request from hiswallet provider. The wallet provider generates a smartcontract and broadcasts it to the network.Then several agents seal thatcontract.

    First an ID verifier identifies the borrower
    for security reasons. Then ascoring agent analyzes the probabilities of adefault. Then an oracle informs the exchangerate between currencies. Finally theco-signer manages the credit conditions in the borrowers country ofresidence, distributing the lenders risk and adding to the termsnoted on the contract. The co-signed contract is then listedin the order book of an online exchange.

    On
    the other side of the network, the lenders create tradingorders and RCN tokens on the exchangeincluding their lending conditions. When the lenders ordermatches the conditions on the smart contract,the loan takes place.

    The RCN tokens
    are transferred to the corresponding wallet providerwhich trades the RCN tokens to localcurrency and grant credit to the borrower.

    By
    reducing the traditional banking brokerage costsand management fees, the Ripio credit protocolallows better conditions for both lenders and borrowers.

    Ripio
    Credit Network sets the stage fora decentralized, trustworthy, predictableand efficient peer to peer global credit networkthat will help many ideas and projectsall over the world to becomea reality.

    Hey guys I'm Varun, the co-founder of Nuo. And I'm
    Sechath the co-founder of Nuo.

    So Nuo is actually a peer to
    peer debt marketplace which connects lenders and borrowsfrom across the world using a set of smart contracts. Essentially thatenables users to cut across interest rates and cut acrossborders and transact with each other in a completely trustlessway.

    We've been at it for almost 18 months
    now. We've been build the products[inaudible] 40,000 users who are using our appalready. We have[inaudible] in loans in our peer to peer loans app.

    Super excited
    to launch the [inaudible].

    And this beta version
    has a completely changed UX from theuser's perspective where the user doesn't need to bother about thepayment of cash or waiting for blockconfirmation time. The transactions are relayed on chain byus.

    Debt needs to be completely [inaudible] transparent and the only way that is possible
    is by creating a globaldebt market. And that is essentially what we are tryingto do.

    The way we are going about it, the fact that
    there arevery less users or daily active users in the decentralizedspace, we think the major reason for that is theuser experience. No hassleswith gas payments, hassles withtaking are of your private key.

    We are actually abstracting
    all of those inconveniencesof the decentralized world andgiving a very clean, web 2 experience to theuser.

    We are super excited about what's coming ahead
    for Nuo. We already have 40,000 usersand $25,000 in loans that have been enabled. We want togo to millions of users who should be able to use our debtmarkets and we're super excited about what's going to happenspecifically in Asia and emerging markets.

    The future
    of cypto is in Asia and weare super pumped about guiding that future aswe go back and ensure that decentralized isavailable so that we can empower users in Asiaand in emergingmarkets.
