IAGON: Future of Cloud Computing

IAGON provides decentralized cloud storage.

To bring businesses and consumers more options in cloud computing, and use the data stored to extract value-added data using artificial intelligence (AI), IAGON is having a crowdsale to raise funds for this massive undertaking. Its goal is to disrupt cloud computing and provide users with better pricing and security than they currently get.

The market for cloud data storage today is dominated by a few players that charge high fees and prevent competition from emerging using economies of scale. They are able to use their massive resources to buy the data centers and equipment required to meet the demands of the market. With their firm control over the market due to their vast wealth, they are able to dictate prices at the expense of users. Because data are stored at specific physical locations, it is vulnerable to being unlawfully accessed or tampered with at those locations, either by hackers or rogue employees. The emergence of blockchain technology, on the other hand, threatens to disrupt this oligopolistic industry and bring power back to consumers.

IAGON will offer a decentralized cloud network harnessing blockchain technology to bring cost-effectiveness, transparency, and security to users. IAGON will use the spare storage capacity and unused processing power of users within its network to encrypt data for storage, and will analyze this data using AI to yield valuable data from it. As part of the growth model of IAGON, the platform will undercut the prices of the dominant players in the industry to gain market share in this exponentially growing market. Users who share spare capacity and processing power with the network will be rewarded in IAGON tokens (IAG), and users who wish to store data within the network or purchase value-added data derived from AI can do so using these tokens. As a distributed system using encryption, the data stored within the network will be much safer than that stored at centralized businesses.

The IAGON crowdsale is divided into two parts: the presale and main sale. The presale is taking place from April 2,2018 to April 30, 2018, and the main sale starts May 10, 2018 and will last up to two months. The project’s soft cap is $30,000,000 and its hard cap is a lofty $77,000,000. Cryptocurrency enthusiasts interested in a project that aims to compete in the area of cloud storage and offer an AI service that analyzes the data to provide useful information may want to look further into this ambitious project.

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.

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.

Peculium: Building Wealth with AI

Peculium uses artificial intelligence for investing.

The Peculium project, based in France, aims to use artificial intelligence and machine learning to help savers and investors build wealth while leveraging blockchain technology. The token, PCL, is ERC20 compliant and thus runs on top of the Ethereum blockchain.

The name of the project comes from “pecul,” which in Latin translates to savings. The artificially intelligent program from which the project is largely based is referred to as AIEVE (Artificial Intelligence, Ethics, Values, and Equilibrium). AIEVE is programmed to use a multitude of data points to make predictions about the future and hence build wealth. AIEVE will manage cryptocurrency assets for individuals, brokers, and businesses, who in turn will decide the level of autonomy of AIEVE with which they feel most comfortable. As stated in the Peculium whitepaper, AIEVE is based on many years of research and development in artificial intelligence.

AIEVE manages wealth with artificial intelligence.
AIEVE is an artificially intelligent wealth manager.

By using the Ethereum blockchain, Peculium transactions will be stored immutably on a global ledger. Blockchain technology will allow for superior transparency and security for users of the platform. The Ethereum blockchain features self-executing “smart contracts” that allow parties to transact without middlemen, thus reducing the costs for the parties involved. Like the Ethereum blockchain, Peculium software is open-source and transparent. Due to the importance of security for building trust among users of the platform, the project will allot substantial sums to invest in security and will hire outside firms to analyze the security of the platform.

A quarter of the funds from the crowdsale will go into the First Solidus Contract (FSC), a self-managed smart contract that will run for six months. Besides building wealth for investors, FSC is meant to showcase the power of AIEVE to investors. 50 percent of the profits of FSC will go to investors and the other 50 percent will be used to maintain the project and fund its expansion. The profits of future smart contracts will also be evenly split between investors and the project.

In total, 20 billion PCL tokens will be created, and roughly three billion will be held by the project to keep it running smoothly. As an ERC20 token, PCL can be stored in popular Ethereum wallets. Profits of the project will be distributed to PCL token holders in the form of Ether (ETH), depending on how many tokens they own.

The presale of the project will take place from November 1 to November 25, 2017, and the ICO will take place from November 26, 2017 to March 1, 2018.  The project aims to attract a minimum of seven million euros and will regard the crowdsale as a complete success if 50 million euros is reached. Investors will be able to get better bonuses the earlier they purchase PCL tokens. After the ICO, the project will seek more investors to allow it to grow.
