    world where your clients' paymentscan be reversed because they got caught with theirpants down.

    For
    you it's a fantasy but for us it's a problemthat only gets worse.

    Companies like
    Paypal, Visa, Mastercard and others have systematicallydeclined a service and redlinedus, leaving room for shady companies to come in andfuck us with fees.

    But that will all change with
    SpankChain, the first in browser blockchain basedmicro payment processor and live video platform for theadult industry.

    A dAppXplorer Hosted Project!
    On social networks such asFacebook, Instagram or Twitter, there isvalue that is transferred between users calledLike.

    Whether it's a picture of a dog, a poem or a short
    video, for every contribution to the community likes areexpected as a recognition for a good job.And they become an incentive for creating newcontent.

    But as
    there are an unlimited supply of likes, nobody ever ran out ofthem. Likes have no actual value and usersgive away likes to low qualitycontent.

    What if we can create scarcity value on
    likes by turning them into a freely transferabletradeable token with a limited issuance?

    What would happen if we transformed likes into
    Like Coins?

    On one hand you'd have to think
    twice before handing out your tokens in exchange for low qualitycontributions because your stock of Like Coin islimited.

    On the other hand you'd be able to give
    away as many Like Coins that you wish on certaincontent that you've really enjoyed. You could earn your Like Coinsback.

    But this would mean that you should've actually contributed
    to the social network.

    Today all social networks
    are turning to video as the dominant resourcefor engaging users on their platforms. Butvideo still relies upon a huge cost on storage andbandwidth.

    By using a token such as
    Like Coin called Flixx,Flixxo users are engaged in helping improve videodistribution network by lending their storage spaceand their bandwidth in exchange for tokens.

    Spending Flixx for consuming the content they really want to
    watch. And earning Flixx back for making thenetwork strongerwhether it was a smartphone, a tablet or desktop computer oreven a smart TV, Flixxo smartly uses any deviceconnected to the internet turning it into part of a decentralizedand incentivized peer to peer network thathas no structural costs. And unlimitedscaling possibilities.
    FansTime is a block chain based business in the e
    The global entertainment industryis massive and growing. It's valuedat over $300 billion worldwide.

    And we the fans, we really make it all
    work.

    However
    many inefficiencies and challenges still remain in thisindustry.

    For example, 3rd parties hold all
    the control leaving value creators fighting an up hillbattle.

    Furthermore their identities are often
    stolen and their hard earned reputation isruined.

    Additionally
    many creators are exploited by their agents andplatforms.

    And finally access and discovery is just not that
    easy for fans and creatorsalike.

    So introducing FansTime, the first blockchain
    based fandom ecosystem aimed atsolving all of those problems.

    It consists of three separate components. First,
    an individual intellectual property value system. Two,international crowdfunding platform. Three,global membership awardssystem.

    So all of these come together to
    create a way to fairly value a creators'IP and empower creators and fansalike.

    So you
    may be asking what will this look like for usfans and consumers?

    Well first
    there is going to be a celebrity time exchange where you can buy andtrade time just like a token. And youcan already access this via our app available on theGoogle Playstore.

    And then there is going to be
    an exclusive token exchange where you can support your favoritecreators by buying their special tokens.

    Finally there is going to be a Fans Rights
    Mall where you can use your time and tokens to buyexclusive access and special products.

    All of this is made
    possible by the FTI token which is usedfor all ecosystem transactions.

    Decentralized social network
    [music][music]

    There is a crisis occuring
    in the social networking world. Surveillance, algorithmmanipulation and censorship are infecting theweb at unprecedented levels.

    For the
    first time in history, millions of users are abandoningtraditional centralized social apps in favor offreedom based alternatives.

    Minds
    is leading the way in this mass internet migrationbuilt on a foundation of internet freedom,reach, rewards and decentralization.

    Instead of restricting
    your reach, Minds amplifiesit.

    Instead of selling your personal data,
    Minds protects it.

    Instead of exploiting your contributions,
    Minds rewards you for them.

    You
    are challenging one of the most complete monopolies inAmerican life. You think you can provide an alternative?

    We are
    building our own ad network, open source, anyone can inspect it and peerreview it. It's fully transparenton the blockchain.

    This is how things have to be. It can't be proprietary.

    The integration
    of the blockchain allows Minds to add anessential layer of decentralization and transparency to thenetwork.

    On Minds you own tokens for your contributions
    which include generating high qualitycontent, referring new users, maintaining an activechannel, developing code andmore.

    Tokens can be used to boost your content for expanded
    reach, either from another channels' audience orthe full Minds network.

    By storing these transactions on
    smart contracts, the source of all advertising campaignsbecomes publicly available and auditableon the blockchain.

    Tokens can also be used to send
    payment to other channels either as a tip orin exchange for exclusive digital services.

    Smart contracts enable
    content creators to autonomously own therelationships with their supporters or advertisers,eliminating any risk of demonetization orcensorship.

    There is a clear movement
    taking place, with the rapid rise of open source and decentralizedtechnology.

    Control of the internet has fallen into
    the hands of the few and it is time to give it back to thepeople.

    The next big network is not going to be a centralized
    site. It's going to be a multitude of networks inter-operatingso that it actually can'tgetcensored.

    A community of developers - Building the future of
    [silence][silence]

    Giveth is
    the happy ending of the DAO.It's taking the same idea ofputting a bunch of money in one spot fora cause but making it a non profitcause.

    Giveth
    has in the middle a simple GoFundmelayer just like Kickstarter and all of these things where you are kind of amarketplace where you are trying to match people who havemoney and a desire to change the world topeople who have the time and the plan to make that change a reality.

    The current charity system, there is this charity in the middle
    that kind of blocks the extra value thatcan be transferred. They take the money and route itover from these guys to these guys. Butthey don't get to connect the people.They are in the way.

    I really believe that communities
    are what change the world.

    If we put
    these guys in the same chat room, then beautifulideas will come out of it. It's not justabout sharing the resources of money, it's about sharing theresources of ideas and time and effortand connecting everybody together.

    We live in a world where you can
    tweet Donald Trump and yet you don't knowwho is using your donations for something.

    It just doesn't make any
    sense.

    So we have this GoFundMe layer in the middle
    and above that we have a communitylayer, building a culture of altruismand experimenting with decentralized governance which is something that'sreally near and dear to my heart.

    I really hope Giveth
    can be a playground for DAOs tocome in and if you want to experiment with a decentralizedgovernance protocol, you can actually test it bystarting a charity.

    Take your UI, take your smart
    contracts and then say we want to do the mostgood for homelessness. Andbeta test it. Air drop some money to allof your supporters and then let themhave control over the donations and see how it worksout.

    Giveth is a playground for
    that. We have the Gofundme layer, the network ofcommunities and there is basically a chatroom. And the smart contract layer which is another thing wehave a huge advantage of because Givethwas started by the White Hat Group and we have the best smartcontract developers in the world.

    One of the big
    reasons for that is we aren't tryingto make money. We are really trulyan altruistic loosely groupedset of hackers that are just trying to make the world a better place.

    We have no legal entity and that
    is by design because without a legal entity you can't make aprofit.

    Everything is
    happening in the smart contract realm. And everything isloose and funand experimental.
    Cent is the income-generating social network
    Cent is a social networkthat functions as an income source. So it's an alternativeto employment.

    Hi I'm
    Bryan Colligan with AlphaGrowth and today we are here at San FranciscoBlockchain week. I'm here with Max fromCent. Max how are you?Tell me about Cent.

    Cent is a social
    network that functions as an incomesource. So it's an alternative to employment.It's a way of sharing knowledge and creativitywithin a userbase and directing or exchangingfinancial and creative value foreach other in novel decentralized ways.

    Where
    are you at in your product life cycle?

    Last Fall we pushed our beta
    live which isour bountry contract. A bounty you essentiallymake a request or ask a questionof the network. Like I need a logo or review my paper I wrotefor school.

    You place a certain amount of
    money as a reward for doingthat action.

    Then the user base competes
    to give the best answer to thatquestion. And then the answers are voted on and the money is given to the bestanswers.

    Is this kind of like
    Quora?

    We sometimes get called
    CryptoQuora.

    That's not a bad thing. That's
    amazing.

    It's cool.
    We have seen a lot of people.. We have users in over120 countries now. A lot of people inrural India and Africa are using the service to answerpeople's questions andearn some amount of money. A few dollarsper week but it's enough for them to fundamentally change their life quite abit and we are scaling that up each month so that peopleare making more and more.

    So you are here at San Francisco
    Blockchain Week. What are youtrying to accomplish?

    We are doing our private sale of our upcoming
    token right now. Any investors that are accredited weare looking to meet. But also potentialusers, potential other technical collaborators.

    At
    all the conferences I go to, thereare people I meet that I wanted to meet and somethinggreat happens out of it.

    I think there is some aspect
    to life in just showing up..

    You got to at least
    show up.

    The unknown
    unknowns.

    If people want to reach out to you and learn more about
    Cent, how can they do that?

    They can contact me
    at Max@Cent.co

    If
    you are a creator or if you are any sort of other person whoshares stuff online we are about to launch oursecond contract this week.

    So
    you can share something like a poem,song, video and you post it andpeople come along and think that's really cool. And they also think other peoplewill also think that's cool. And what they can do is seed it withmoney.

    That means they send a certain amount of money to a
    contract and half that money goes to the creator of the content and the otherhalf goes to the seeders that gave moneyto that content before them.

    So when you give money
    to something, you are going to get a steady stream of moneyfrom everyone that comes after you that gives money to the same piece ofcontent.

    It rewards both the creator and the early supporters of a
    piece of content financially.

    So you are monetizing the viral
    loop?

    Yes. We are incentivizing
    people to discover, share andsupport creators in a way that's not relying on altruism.It's relying on selfishness which wethink is an easier thingto rely on in the world today.

    That's where Cent comes from,
    incentivization?

    It technically comes from
    incentivize and decentralized.But we like to think of every action on thenetwork being incentivized.

    In the
    first contract we talked about voting on what you think the bestanswers are. Each time you vote you earn a little bit of Ethjust for doing that.So commenting and incentivizedcontent sharing and pretty much everything.

    That's my favorite
    part in the crypto world in general. How you canarchitect new types of behaviors.

    This
    has beensuper cool.
    GitHub on video for developers
    If you are a beginner looking to learn a newskill, online course sites are a dime adozen.

    What if you are past the beginner
    stage? If you are at the intermediate or advanced level, there aren't a lot of options outthere for you.

    That's the problem the
    education ecosystem solves.

    Professional development is an industry that is
    worth about $360 billion. But most of the onlineeducation companies that exist todayare all competing in the beginner space.

    That is
    why the education ecosystem is focused onpeople who have already passed the beginner stage.

    Our beta has connected 1 million professionals
    worldwide. And with our new educationtoken, that number is only going to grow.

    The education tokens is an ERC20
    token which lives on the ethereum blockchain. That means itcan be bought, sold and traded outside of theecosystem just like any other cryptocurrency.

    But our token
    exists primarily to power a new system of incentives which willreward everyone who brings positive value to the ecosystem at anylevel.

    Learners will use education tokens
    to pay for their subscriptions, to donate tocreators. To request specific projects or materials andengage in Q&A with project creators.

    In
    return learners are rewarded for positive behaviorlike practicing with project materials and watchingprojects.

    Similarly, project
    creators will be rewarded with tokens. The more view time their projectsget, the more education tokens they receive.

    API creators who extend the platforms' functionality will be
    rewarded with tokens as well. So will users who find andreport bugs on the system.

    Education
    tokens are also used for governance.

    For
    example, holding education tokens will give users the powerto vote on the future of the platform.Not just what projects are being created but thefeatures that the development team implements. And what new project topics tosupport.

    We have learned a lot from other token
    models like SteemIt which is a blogging platform thatrewards its users with tokens when they write awesome content.And the more power the users have, the morethey create projects which matches what viewers want towatch.

    How do we make sure these tokens have
    value? To start with, the token isdesigned to have as much utility as possiblein the education ecosystem meaning as long as people areusing the network, they will need tokens. Andas the size of the userbase grows, so doesthe demand for tokens.

    To help further offset
    this, a percentage of all tokens spent on subscriptions annuallyare burned removing them from circulationand increasing the value of all remaining tokens.

    Finally,
    13% of all the tokens created have been reservedas incentives for project creators over the nextthree years. Our goal is to have 10,000 new projectscreated in the next 3 years.

    We want to partner up
    with schools, libraries,colleges and other online education companies.

    Our mission is to be the place on the web
    for professional development. Andour education token is the central partofthat.
