Altair VR: Encyclopedia Powered by Blockchain

Altair VR is an encyclopedia powered by the blockchain.

Altair VR is a project aimed to become a next generation encyclopedia incorporating virtual reality (VR) and the blockchain. By employing the blockchain, the possibilities within VR are greatly expanded, allowing for an ecosystem where learning and entertainment become immersive.

The team behind Altair VR has extensive experience in VR, having creating mobile dome-shaped planetariums approximately 15 feet wide for children in Russia. Children would enter these domes and see outer space and its myriad objects up-close, and would interact in a way that would be meaningful and memorable. In total, 500,000 children in Russia got to experience these mobile planetariums, giving many of them a life-long appreciation of astronomy. With the progression of technology and seeing new possibilities, the team switched to using a VR headset to allow for more extensive use of VR for education, and to allow the team to produce more varied content not dependent on mobile domes.

Though originally focused on astronomy, Altair VR will create a virtual encyclopedia that will allow users to experience the subject matter they wish to learn about. Using a VR headset, users will be able to choose the subject matter that interests them, and will be able to engage in dynamic learning that allows them to navigate in a virtual world. Users can go back in time and explore previous ages, can travel to different parts of the world and learn geography and culture, can zoom in and out to see microscopic particles and far-away planets and galaxies, and can even travel to the future to see the possibilities that lie ahead for humanity. The ability of users to interact with their virtual environment and learn by immersing themselves in the subject matter rather than just reading about it in a textbook will enhance the learning experience and promote better understanding.

Altair VR will require a headset.
Altair VR will require a headset.

The native token of the platform, ALT, will allow users to buy and sell content. The ALT token is an ERC20 token that runs on top of the Ethereum blockchain. The ability of users to monetize content that they have created will encourage the growth of an ecosystem where content and learning are ever-expanding, with the best content creators reaping the greatest rewards. Additionally, the platform will protect copyrights, as ownership of content will be immutably recorded on the blockchain. As an ERC20 token, ALT can be stored in numerous Ethereum wallets and can be easily traded at exchanges for other cryptocurrencies or fiat currencies.

Altair will be having a token presale from March 20, 2018 to April 15, 2018, and will have its main crowdsale from April 16, 2018 to May 31, 2018. Bonuses will be given depending on the stage of the crowdsale that the tokens are bought. The money raised during the crowdsale will help the team build and market its platform. No more than 1,000,000,000 ALT will be minted, keeping the supply stable and thus allowing the token to potentially rise in value with the growth of the platform.

Quantum1Net: Quantum-Safe Cryptography

Quantum1Net has developed quantum safe encryption.Quantum1Net has developed a proprietary key generator that can withstand attacks from quantum computers. The development of quantum computers will force all industries to reassess their security and apply new technologies that can protect privacy.

Today, computers are designed with a binary system of code, comprised of ones and zeroes. At any particular time, the computer can only process either a one or zero, but not both simultaneously. The binary system, while useful, places a theoretical limit on the speed and capacity of computers. By contrast, quantum computers will process quantum bits, or qubits, which are made of ones or zeroes, or both simultaneously. The ability of quantum computers to process qubits will give them far more speed and data storage capacity than today’s computers. With their significantly greater computational power, quantum computers will render today’s security, including encryption methods, ineffective and obsolete.

Quantum1Net has developed a unique method of generating truly random private keys that cannot be predicted by the best quantum computers. The problem with the RSA (Rivest-Shamir-Adleman) cryptography used today is that it produces pseudo-random numbers: numbers that are sufficiently random for today’s computers, but that actually show patterns that can be detected by quantum computers. The ability of quantum computers to detect the patterns of RSA cryptography means that they will be able to easily decrypt the keys it generates. By contrast, Quantum1Net uses quantum mechanics, the branch of science dealing with phenomena at the sub-atomic level, to produce truly random keys that are uncrackable.

Because the internet as we know it is based on RSA cryptography, quantum computing will cause massive disruption in every industry, as countermeasures will be needed to make information secure. Potentially, all private data on the internet, including within the financial system, will be in jeopardy if industries are not quick to act on this emerging technology. The potential of first-movers such as Quantum1Net will thus be enormous, as businesses will be forced to adopt quantum-safe encryption to protect their data. After all, businesses lose the confidence and trust of consumers when they are affected by a data breach.

To bring its proprietary technology to the mainstream, Quantum1Net will develop a mesh network and user-friendly API to give users random keys upon request using its “quantum encryption key generator” (QEKG). Each time keys are generated, they will be discarded to eliminate any non-randomness. For businesses that require quantum proof security, they will be able to connect to the Quantum1Net network to ensure their products and services remain secure. As part of its showcasing of its capabilities, the team behind Quantum1Net will develop a fork of bitcoin that will be safe from quantum decryption.

Quantum1Net will conduct a series of crowdsales to fund its development and marketing. The Silver token crowdsale that began in February 2018 will help the project hire new developers and establish a new office. The Gold token sale scheduled for July 2018 will help the project further develop its proof-of-concept, and hardware and software development. The Gold tokensale scheduled for January 2019 will allow for long-term development and the use of its technology outside of the cryptocurrency industry. To encourage early investors, the project will give a 20 percent bonus to participants of the Silver token sale. Investors interested in quantum-safe encryption should consider this fascinating project that may transform computer security as we know it.

IP Exchange: The Future of IP Sharing

IP Exchange is the future of IP sharing.

IP Exchange aims to meet the growing demand among individuals and businesses for IP addresses by creating a decentralized exchange for the trading of IPs. The platform will also issue its own token, IPSX, that will be used as a form of payment for transactions and that can be converted to other tokens and cryptocurrencies, as well as fiat currencies.

The IP Exchange platform will allow users to install software into their devices to enable them to share their IPs. The devices capable of sharing IPs include mobile devices, tablets, laptops, and desktops. Users will be able to share or rent IPs in a matter of seconds once they are connected to the platform. The IP Exchange will thus function as a peer-to-peer (P2P) exchange giving users a plethora of options, such as the geographical location of IPs and length of time they can be used, from seconds to a month. By allowing users to earn IPSX tokens for renting IPs, the platform will grow in users, thus giving consumers more options and better prices.

The sharing of IPs will have positive effects for individuals and businesses. Individuals who live under totalitarian or oppressive regimes that punish the viewing or dissemination of unpopular views will be able to freely access the websites they wish without detection or by bypassing filters. Businesses will be able to reach customers more effectively by having access to additional IPs at a reasonable cost. The decentralized P2P exchange employing the blockchain and “smart contracts” — contracts that automatically execute when the criteria set by two parties are met — will also drive down costs for individuals and businesses by eliminating intermediaries such as brokers.

The IP Exchange platform will use a third-party virtual private network (VPN) application to give anonymity to users. VPNs are essentially tunnels that prevent ISPs and other entities from knowing which websites the user is visiting. Those who rent out IPs will be protected from the use of their IPs for illegal activities as they will be able to easily prove they rented out their IPs when those activities occurred.

The IP Exchange crowdsale offering IPSX tokens to the public begins February 28, 2018. Of the maximum 1,800,000,000 IPSX that will be minted, 900,000,000 will be offered for sale to the public. The remainder of the tokens will be used to incentivize early adopters and strategic partners, and will be used by the team for marketing and development. The team is currently in the process of opening its headquarters in Zug, Switzerland. Investors interested in gaining exposure to this unique project that will expand the possibilities of the internet may want to consider participating in this highly-anticipated crowdsale.

Lucyd: AR Smartglasses for Everyone

Lucyd AR smartglasses are designed to be comfortable to users.

With augmented reality (AR) equipment uncomfortable and unsightly for ordinary users, Lucyd aims to create AR smartglasses that look and feel indistinguishable from ordinary glasses. By employing ergonomics along with cutting-edge technology, Lucyd has the potential to bring AR to the mainstream.

In order to make AR smartglasses as comfortable as possible, Lucyd has taken important steps in their design. The circuitry within the smartglasses are in their stems, so as to prevent the electrical components from being visible. The smartglasses also come with a built-in camera for the detection of objects and to capture photos and videos. The LCD microdisplays integrated within the lens have a long battery life and are transparent. To preserve energy and power, the Lucyd smartglasses use the computing power and data of Android and OS devices. The smartglasses turn on and off by folding and unfolding them. These are just some of the features that allow the smartglasses to look and feel like normal glasses.

To build a thriving ecosystem, Lucyd will issue its own token, LCD, that runs on top of the Ethereum blockchain. The platform will reward developers who build apps for the platform LCD based on their usage and reviews by users, and in turn will reward users with LCD for giving their reviews. The rewards for developers and users will ensure that the platform is continually developed to enhance the experience of users. LCD can be bought or sold at cryptocurrency exchanges and can thus be converted to fiat currencies. LCD can also be used to buy smartglasses.

The team behind Lucyd has 13 AR patents and expertise in various fields that include AR, optics, and ergonomics. The patents were developed by researchers at the University of Central Florida. Among the team, including the advisers, are seven PhDs. The Lucyd company is backed by Tekcapital PLC, a leading IP investment company in the UK.

The Lucyd crowdsale to raise funds for further developing and marketing this platform is now taking place and ends February 28, 2018. During the crowdsale, LCD can be bought for $0.25. In total, no more than 100,000,000 LCD will be minted, keeping the supply limited for token holders and investors. The tokens designated for the team will be frozen for a period of one year, thus encouraging the team to focus on long-term success.

Arcona: Next Generation Augmented Reality

Arcona virtual reality is powered by the blockchain.

Using the power of blockchain technology, which enables trustless transactions between parties on a decentralized ledger, Arcona aims to take  augmented reality to the next level. By utilizing blockchain technology, Arcona will be able to create an augmented world more intertwined with and similar to the real world, with possibilities limited only by the imagination.

Central to the Arcona ecosystem will be Digital Land that can be bought, sold, and rented by users. Similar to the real world, land will be divided into lots with precise measurements. The ecosystem will use the Arcona token as a means of exchange to trade items or services of value. Users can create and upload their own designs to make their Digital Land suit their preferences. Artists can upload their creations and offer their works in the augmented world, potentially expanding their reach with the public. Just as in the real world, copyrights will be owned and enforced, with ownership recorded immutably on the blockchain.

Users can immerse themselves in the augmented world using mobile devices, tablets, laptops, and special headsets. Using these devices, users will also be able to change the environment around them. Arcona aims to be compatible with all popular devices, unlike other virtual and augmented reality platforms with specific requirements.

In 2019, Arcona plans to establish 10 large cities in the augmented world that can be bought by token holders, with further development thereafter. Cities with large population densities will be more expensive for buying properties, just as in the real world. Digital Land can thus be purchased in anticipation that its value will increase as the platform grows in popularity, creating an augmented world with a real, complex economy.

The team behind Arcona has plenty of experience in virtual and augmented reality, having worked with PilgrimXXI since 2013 and developed eight virtual reality parks in six countries. These parks allow visitors to see great monuments of the past and experience major historical events using mobile devices and headsets.

The main Arcona crowdsale, allowing investors to buy the Arcona token for 0.0025 ETH, begins April 15, 2018 and ends May 15, 2018. In total, no more than 135 million Arcona tokens that are ERC20 compliant will be created. Investors interested in buying tokens of an augmented reality project with a solid team that has demonstrated past success should consider this unique opportunity. As always, investors should do their own due diligence when investing.

Biometrids: Biometrics Prevents Identity Theft

The Biometrids biometrics platform prevents identity theft.

Using facial recognition software and blockchain technology, Biometrids aims to provide a means for users to authenticate their identity and its associated reputation. By means of this software that can be installed into mobile devices, identity theft will be prevented and businesses will be able to transact on the internet with more confidence.

With its static ID feature, users will be able to authenticate themselves in real-time when conducting a transaction, allowing the other party to see if they have ever been flagged for fraud. This feature not only serves to protect users from becoming victims of fraud, but also serves as a deterrent given that any fraudulent activity will remain as a permanent record. Users of the platform will remain anonymous, though their ID based on the facial recognition software will be recorded on the blockchain, which is transparent and immutable. Importantly, the photograph of the face will not be what is stored, but rather numerical values unique to the face based on a 3D image. Aiming to be as accurate as possible, the software will include a process to distinguish identical twins with very similar faces.

Globally, the problem of identity theft has cost individuals and businesses tens of billions of dollars. In the U.S., identity theft cost consumers about $16 billion in 2016, and in the UK identity theft has doubled from 2008 to 2016. The facial ID software of Biometrids will eliminate identity theft, making it a relic of the past, and thus save consumers time and money.

Among the best use-cases of Biometrids is in developing countries, where many births go unregistered due to families lacking the means to obtain proper identification through the government. In these countries, the problem of lacking ID documents can prevent individuals from obtaining needed goods and services, and conducting business. By allowing individuals to identify themselves without requiring central authorities, they will be empowered and can participate in transactions of which they were previously excluded.

Another important use-case for this technology is the delivery of packages. Delivery services often merely ask for the ID of the recipient, whereas with Biometrids the delivery of a product will require the same person who ordered producing their ID, allowing the seller to be certain that the person who ordered the package received it. This feature will lower or eliminate fraudulent claims of missing or non-delivered packages, and will save businesses time and money.

The native token of the platform, used for paying for services and fees, is IDS. IDS is an ERC20 token and runs on top of the Ethereum protocol. In total, no more than 100 million IDS will be minted. The fee for using the platform for scanning a face is 0.1 IDS. The platform will collect 10 percent of the fees to further develop and market the platform, given the rapid pace that technology evolves. Nodes that authenticate users, thus allowing the platform to be decentralized, are rewarded with the remainder of the fees. Nodes will be required to stake at least 10,000 IDS and will be required to have hardware that meets a standard, and will be randomly selected to secure the network and receive rewards.

Biometrids IDS tokens will allow users to pay for services on the platform.
Click to see crowdsale details.

About 2o percent of the tokens will be locked up for three years to prevent it from being dumped into the market, thus incentivizing the building of the platform according to the roadmap. The project will also initially put more focus on developing its technology than having its token accepted into exchanges, indicating that the project is focused on long-term success. As one of the first projects to combine biometrics with blockchain technology, this project has a promising future with great potential for early investors.

Mark.Space: Virtual Reality on Blockchain

Mark.Space brings virtual reality to the blockchain.

Among the more ambitious and interesting ICOs to emerge so far in 2018 is Mark.Space, which aims to build the next generation internet replete with virtual reality and 3D experience. This virtual world will be powered by blockchain technology, which will register ownership of virtual objects and will allow the transfer of goods and services within it.

The virtual world of Mark.Space is made up of units that can be purchased and made accessible to the owners. Each virtual unit is about 70 square meters and is linked to a web domain. Users of the platform can use programs such as 3DMAX to design their unit, a camera to obtain a 360 degree panorama that can be imported into the unit, or can use the available tools available with the web-based platform to create a dream interior.

The four types of units on the platform are residential, community, shopping, and business. These different types or categories of units will have their own rules and tools given their different purposes. By creating different categories of units with their own rules, Mark.Space will be able to create a virtual world that mimics the real world in structure and organization. Accessing the virtual world of Mark.Space will not require an expensive VR headset, and can be done with an ordinary web browser, though the platform will work with VR headsets and glasses to enhance the user experience as much as possible.

Virtual reality will have shopping centers.
Virtual reality shopping center from Mark.Space.

Using their imagination and creativity, users can decorate their units with paintings, furniture, electronics, and other objects as they see fit. Media content can also be uploaded to the electronic devices within the unit, allowing for a very immersive and realistic experience. Using Mark.Space, users can thus blend their dreams with reality.

The ownership of property in this virtual world is registered on the blockchain using “smart contracts,” which are contracts that execute automatically when the preconditions of two parties are met. All transactions will be recorded on the blockchain, and will thus be recorded immutably for users to see. The immutable nature of transactions and the transparent nature of ownership are also ways that this virtual world will mimic and enhance reality.

The native token of the platform is MRK, which can be traded for virtual goods on the platform and can also be traded for other tokens and cryptocurrencies at major exchanges. MRK is ERC20 compatible and runs on top of the Ethereum blockchain. As the platform grows in popularity and use, the value of MRK tokens is likely to rise.

The Mark.Space ICO is taking place and ends February 28, 2018. During this time, investors will be able to buy MRK tokens at a discount. Investors who are looking to gain exposure to the fast-growing industry of virtual reality may want to consider investing in Mark.Space, given the audacious aims of the project and its position as one of the first-movers in bringing blockchain technology to the industry.

NapoleonX: The Ultimate Crypto Asset Manager

NapoleonX is a decentralized, algorithmic crypto asset manager.

By applying the latest developments in artificial intelligence and machine learning, NapoleonX aims to become the first decentralized crypto asset manager. With the increasing tokenization of the economy, NapoleonX will provide algorithmic trading to manage these assets for investors.

Unique among ICOs, the NapoleonX platform will offer Decentralized Autonomous Funds (DAFs) combosed of a robot or group of robots managing crypto assets. As algorithmic trading has developed, it has been able to outperform the management of funds by humans. Moreover, the elimination of highly-paid fund managers will reduce costs for investors, thus giving them better returns in the long run.

NapoleonX will employ “smart contracts” — contracts that automatically execute when conditions are met by two parties — to run the DAFs. Smart contracts, making brokers unnecessary, significantly reduce costs for investors. The transactions on the platform will work seamlessly with instant settlement based on these automatically executing programs. As transactions on top of the Ethereum blockchain, they are transparent, thus eliminating the possibility of fraud or misconduct.

The token central to the platform is NPX. Investors who buy NPX will be able to receive profits from the use of bots by DAFs and will be entitled to receive premium trading signals. Additionally, as the platform grows in use, demand for NPX will rise proportionally, benefiting investors.

The NapoleonX AI app will be user-friendly.

A maximum of 50,000,000 NPX will be minted. NPX tokens are ERC20 compatible, allowing them to be stored in popular Ethereum wallets such as Mist and MyEtherWallet and traded at popular exchanges. The ICO, taking place from January 22 to February 28, 2018, will allow investors to buy NPX at 1,000 per ETH. The hard cap for the project is 15,000,000 euros, which will terminate the ICO. Investors interested in benefiting from the latest innovations and applications in artificial intelligence should seriously consider this project with enormous potential for growth if its roadmap is achieved.

Nucleus Vision: Integrating IoT into Businesses

Nucleus Vision integrates IoT into businesses.

Nucleus Vision aims to allow businesses to take full advantage of the Internet of Things (IoT) by deploying proprietary sensors at businesses to sync up with the mobile devices of customers to provide individualized attention and offers to them. By giving customers individualized offers at participating businesses, Nucleus Vision is able to build customer loyalty and revenues for its partners.

Using proprietary software on top of the blockchain, Nucleus Vision is able to track customer habits, visits to a business, the aisles the customer walks through, and previous purchases to predict future purchases. By merging all of this data, Nucleus Vision is able to give customers special offers in real-time once they visit a business by linking with their mobile devices. Importantly, Nucleus Vision will obtain data from mobile devices with the permission of users and will abide by all applicable privacy laws in various jurisdictions. Customers will even be offered nCash, the native token of the platform, for their participation in a loyalty program.

By contrast, brick-and-mortar businesses today generally lack information about customers visiting them and are thus unable to immediately determine their wants and needs. Thus, customer service is generalized to serve the needs of the greatest number, preventing businesses from generating as much sales as they potentially can. Nucleus Vision will finally integrate the capabilities of IoT into businesses, creating powerful incentives for customers, and building their loyalty and repeat business.

Additionally, Nucleus Vision aims to establish itself within the security industry. Businesses can obtain valuable data to identify lawbreakers who use mobile or other electronic devices while committing a crime on their property. Businesses will be able to purchase this service by using nCash.

The nCash token is ERC20 compliant and runs on top of the Ethereum blockchain, which will allow consumers to store the token in popular Ethereum wallets and trade it on exchanges. In total, no more than 10 billion nCash will be minted, thus allowing the value of nCash to increase as the Nucleus Vision ecosystem grows in use.

The Nucleus Vision crowdsale will take place in the first quarter of 2018, with the starting and ending dates yet to be determined. Investors can purchase nCash tokens at a discount using Ether. The hard cap for the project is $40 million. Investors who are interested in IoT should consider this promising project full of novel ideas.

Sharpe Capital: Investing in AI

The Sharpe Capital platform uses AI and machine learning for investing.

Combining blockchain technology, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, Sharpe Capital aims to revolutionize investing and finance by democratizing these technologies. Principally, users of the platform will be able to make predictions about the markets and get rewarded in ETH depending on their confidence and accuracy.

The main token of the platform, SHP, will indicate the level of confidence of participants using the proprietary proof-of-stake algorithm, with the premise that the more tokens are held by a participant, all other things equal, the more confidence the user has in his or her predictions. Thus, the more SHP a user owns, the greater are the potential gains from accurate predictions. Importantly, the platform will not penalize users on wrong predictions, but rather will simply reduce their rewards.

Another important algorithm, tied to individual ETH addresses and affecting rewards for market predictions, is the proof-of-reputation. The user’s reputation will fluctuate up or down depending his or her previous predictions, which will be immutably recorded on the blockchain. Because rewards are tied to accurate predictions, users are incentivized to be as accurate and honest as possible.

The third main algorithm, proof-of-work, will ensure that there is a penalty from trying to game the system by switching ETH addresses to start all over should the user’s reputation fall. The proof-of-work will reward users based on their history and frequency of predictions, and will be modified over time to make it more optimal for promoting integrity.

In the first quarter of 2019, Sharpe Capital plans to release the Sharpe Crypto Derivative (SCD) token, which will represent ownership of an investment fund that will make predictions using AI and machine learning from the sentiment of users on the platform. This investment fund will issue dividends to SCD token holders on a quarterly basis. Before this token is minted, Sharpe Capital will ensure it is in legal compliance.

The team behind Sharpe Capital has plenty of experience in software development, mathematics, and engineering. Together, they will bring AI and machine learning to the mainstream, allowing any investor to reap the rewards of their combined knowledge and experience. Investors who want to gain exposure to the burgeoning field of AI can do so by acquiring SHP and SCD tokens.

The crowdsale of Sharpe Capital will end February 5, 2018, giving investors some time to buy SHP tokens at a discount. Towards the end of the crowdsale, SHP tokens will be offered at 1,800 per ETH. No more than 130,000,000 SHP will be minted, keeping the supply restricted to support the value of the token. Thus far, the project has raised over 4,000 ETH during the crowdsale.
