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.

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.

Jincor: Making Blockchain Easy

The Jincor private blockchain is designed to be easy to use for businesses.

With blockchain technology being too complicated for many businesses, Jincor aims to provide an easy-to-use platform giving businesses all of the benefits of the technology minus the headaches. The Jincor blockchain is private and can execute smart contracts and cryptocurrency transactions, both of which will help businesses be more profitable.

Smart contracts, which are self-executing programs on the blockchain that execute when criteria are met by two parties, can potentially alleviate numerous problems for businesses and lower costs. By removing the need for middlemen and executing when terms have been met by both parties, they reduce costs for businesses and promote confidence in conducting business. Because smart contracts execute instantly, they allow businesses to finalize deals in a timely manner, which can boost their bottom line significantly. To make it easy for businesses, Jincor will create smart contract templates for businesses, lowering their cost of execution and removing the need for specially-trained blockchain developers.

To build confidence among users given the murky legal situation of cryptocurrencies, Jincor will provide guidance to its users through its legal team to comply with regulations of various jurisdictions. Jincor will implement a strict verification for businesses whereby they will have to provide real-world identification that will be tied to their profile on the platform. The linking of real-world identities with virtual identities will keep the Jincor private blockchain legally compliant in many jurisdictions. Additionally, by allowing businesses to easily transact in cryptocurrencies, they will be able to attract more customers with a preference for their use.

The native token of the platform, JCR, will enable the creation and execution of smart contracts and provide access to other premium services. In total, 35 million JCR will be minted. Customers will be able to purchase JCR directly from Jincor or on popular exchanges. In case there are not enough JCR on exchanges to meet the demands of customers, Jincor will reserve 4.2 million JCR to ensure the liquidity of the token and platform.

The Jincor ICO ends January 31, 2018, and during this ICO investors can purchase JCR at $1 each. The hard cap of the project is $26.6 million, equivalent to about 76 percent of the tokens outstanding. Unsold tokens will be burned, thus reducing the supply of JCR and benefiting investors by increasing their value. Jincor is thus a special opportunity for investors who want to gain exposure to the mainstreaming of blockchain technology.

Chimaera: Ultimate Decentralized Gaming

Chimaera offers a decentralized gaming platform on the blockchain.

Using blockchain technology, Chimaera aims to establish a decentralized network for gamers and developers to interact and create virtual worlds unencumbered by the barriers of the present industry.

In-game assets are currently seeing an explosion of growth, and Chimaera aims to make the buying and selling of these easier and more transparent on its platform. As a platform that offers buyers and sellers the ability to trade these virtual goods, Chimaera will benefit the gaming community as a whole and reward developers who have put in their hard work to create these features. For gamers, in-game assets not only make the games more enjoyable, but they also give gamers the ability to make a profit by trading them.

Chimaera will be designed as a decentralized platform to also meet the needs of developers. It will allow for games with more advanced features to be developed and for frictionless purchases of in-game assets using smart contracts. The greater options offered by the platform will build loyalty toward developers who cater to the needs of gamers. Additionally, the platform will provide tools and support for developers, and will reach out to indie game developers with talent and skill that can be applied within its ecosystem.

Chimaera is a decentralized gaming platform.Using the blockchain, developers and gamers will be able to create and participate in Decentralized Autonomous Universes (DAUs). DAUs are virtual realities that run continuously without servers. These DAUs would run with the impenetrable security of blockchain technology, which provides immutable and transparent transactions on a ledger using encryption.

While bitcoin gave inspiration and vision to Chimaera as a decentralized cryptocurrency, the founders of the platform are aware of its scaling problems and aim to avoid them. Chimaera’s solution to the scalability problem is “game channels,” where players can interact in a trustless manner using a side chain. These game channels prevent forgery or manipulation, and have their own dispute resolution mechanism that is fair and rewards honesty.

The Chimaera token, CHI, will be the primary currency of the platform, and can be exchanged for bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. As the platform and the demand for the virtual goods within it grow, CHI will increase in value. A maximum of 1,175,000,000 will be minted according to the whitepaper. The CHI token can be used to create an account, conduct account transactions, buy or rent game assets, and buy and sell games.

The Chimaera Trading Platform will allow gamers to trade assets for CHI. Transactions on the Chimaera Trading Platform will be frictionless and transparent. Users will be in control of their own private keys, allowing them to have full control over transactions. As a peer-to-peer exchange, at no point will the exchange have control over the assets traded on it.

The Chimaera team is one of the strongest among those in the blockchain space, possessing extensive experience in blockchain development. The founder of the project, Andrew Colosimo, founded the Huntercoin experiment, which was the world’s first “human mineable” cryptocurrency, and provably fair and decentralized massively multiplayer online (MMO) game. Dr. Daniel Kraft, a cofounder of Chimaera, has been a bitcoin developer since 2013, and has been the primary Namecoin and Huntercoin developer since 2014. The team also has other members providing software, marketing, and legal expertise.

With such a talented team and the ambition and history of success possessed by it, Chimaera will be a major contender as a decentralized gaming platform. Those who join in the crowdsale currently taking place offering CHI tokens at a discount are likely to be rewarded in the long run. The visionaries behind Chimaera will open up possibilities with decentralized gaming previously unforeseen, and, if history is any indication, reward investors along the way.

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.

Datum DAT Cryptocurrency

Datum DAT token.A new cryptocurrency, Datum (DAT), promises to allow users to securely manage their own data and share or sell it if they choose. Datum is having an initial coin offering (ICO) allowing investors to purchase DAT tokens from October 17 to November 17, 2017.

According to Datum, the amount of data stored is growing exponentially, leading to social and economic disparities with those possessing or controlling the data having a clear advantage. This has led to the erosion of privacy as well as unchecked surveillance. Among the companies known for collecting user data and using it for marketing in exchange for offering “free” service are Google, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The erosion of user privacy has become so rampant that many users have simply resigned themselves to surrending privacy.

By contrast, Datum aims to establish a secure, decentralized network on the Ethereum blockchain where users can create smart contracts to determine who will be able to view their data. In this network, users will be able to profit from their own data. DAT tokens will be used to store and share data, which in turn can be easily converted to other cryptocurrencies or fiat currencies at major exchanges.

There will be at most three billion DAT tokens initially on the market, ensuring their liquidity and preservation of value. About half of these will be available for sale during the ICO. Unlike many cryptocurrencies on the market, DAT is not minable and does not have an inflating supply, which potentially leads to greater volatility and a reduced value for cryptocurrency owners. DAT is ERC20 compatible, which will allow users to store it in many popular Ethereum wallets.

Over time, DAT tokens will be destroyed as they are exchanged for privileges on the network, leading to an increase in value of the tokens for holders. Those who choose to become a storage node on the network are paid fees for storing and transferring data.

The Datum DAT mobile app is user-friendly.

The Datum client will be available for Android and iOS phones, desktops, and other devices. It will be user-friendly with a focus on security and convenience. Users will be able to view a summary of their data, their ownership of DAT tokens, privacy settings, and detailed reports. Users will be able to view data that is sent to other parties and to view who has viewed their data.

At first, Datum will be managed by Datum Network GmbH, a company based in Switzerland, but the ultimate goal is for the network to function as a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) managed by users and stakeholders through a non-profit foundation in Switzerland.

By empowering users with their own data, Datum can potentially play a revolutionary and transformative role in bringing privacy back to the people. This is a momentous change in consciousness coinciding with technological innovation. Just when the advancement of technology made it easy for big corporations to exploit personal data, further advancements, notably the blockchain and decentralization, have put the users back in charge of the platform.
