SKYFchain: The Future of Logistics

SKYFchain is the world's first business to robot blockchain.

SKYFchain is an ambitious blockchain project aiming to transform the logistics industry to make it unmanned, reducing costs and boosting efficiencies. SKYFchain will achieve this goal by using drones and developing its own permissioned blockchain.

The SKYFchain Operating Platform will be the system linking a fleet of drones with the blockchain that records all transactions between parties. The world’s first industrial cargo drone — the SKYF drone — is currently under development and will sync with the blockchain, instantly transmitting data to bring transparency to each step of the logistics process. The blockchain will also be compatible with and accommodate other types of unmanned drones, such as those at sea or on the ground. As the first business-to-robot (B2R) blockchain, SKYFchain will have a first-mover advantage that will put it leaps and bounds ahead of competitors that may arise.

The SKYF drone will be disruptive to the logistics industry owning to its carrying capacity, or “payload,” as well as the distance it can travel. The payload of the SKYF drone will be 400 kg (800 lbs.) and the distance it can travel is 350 km (220 miles). Due to their extraordinary and unprecedented capacity, they will be especially useful to the oil and gas industry, which needs oil and gas transported long distances. The reduction in costs is likely to be passed onto consumers, who in turn will spend less for goods and services, and personal energy consumption. Currently, up to 50 percent of costs in logistics comes from labor.

A maximum of 1.2 billion SKYFchain tokens, or SKYFT, will be minted, which will be used as the currency of the blockchain. SKYFT tokens are ERC20 tokens running on top of the Ethereum blockchain, but it be instantly reflected in the proprietary blockchain of SKYFchain. The main purpose of having its own blockchain is to ensure it is scalable, given the congestion of current blockchains due to their capacity limits and the data-intensive nature of the logistics industry. As a project linked to the manufacture of SKYF drones, 20 percent of the revenues derived from their sale will be used to buy back SKYFT tokens, thus supporting its value. Given the potential growth of the industry, estimated to have a $127 billion potential according to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), SKYFchain plans to purchase as much as $50 billion SKYFT tokens within the next five years.

Besides the use of SKYF drones and the SKYFchain blockchain for strictly business reasons, they could also be used for natural disaster relief and rescue operations. SKYF drones would be able to locate wildfires and extinguish them with water, thus removing the expense and risk of using manned helicopters. They could used to deliver food, fuel, and medication to those in need after any type of natural disaster. SKYF drones would also be able to locate humans stuck at sea, pick them up, and take them to safety. The blockchain would account for the movement of resources from one point to another.

The SKYFchain ICO is running from March 10, 2018 to June 15, 2018, during which the SKYFT token will sell for $0.065, with bonuses added depending on the phase of the campaign that favor the earliest investors. The soft cap for the project is $5 million and the hard cap is $30 million. Notably, the presale sold out in just five days, with $2 million raised. The project is also backed by major investors who have poured millions of dollars into it. As an innovative project with strong financial backing, SKYFchain can be a potentially revolutionary force in logistics if it is to fulfill its roadmap.

Global REIT: Tokenized Real Estate

Global REIT tokenizes real estate.

Global REIT will bring the advantages of a real estate investment trust (REIT) to cryptocurrency investors by having a crowdsale offering tokens that will issue dividends based on acquired properties. As a first-mover in this lucrative area that is Sharia-compliant, Global REIT is poised to capture a large market share.

The benefits of a REIT, particularly for cryptocurrency investors, are numerous. As a portfolio of rental properties, a REIT has built-in diversification, so that if any property is vacant or requires repairs other properties are generating income. A REIT is also managed by experienced real estate professionals, thus allowing investors to focus on other matters. Additionally, a REIT provides a steady stream of income from the diversified portfolio of properties, and sometimes from other activities such as selling a property or providing financing. Ownership or rights to a REIT can typically be bought and sold on an open market through a stock. Rather than issuing a stock, Global REIT will issue two tokens, GREM and GRET, that run on top of the Ethereum blockchain and can be traded at cryptocurrency exchanges.

As a project that will acquire tangible properties in U.A.E. and UK, and possibly other countries, the tokens issued by Global REIT will have intrinsic value. While cryptocurrencies may rise and fall in popularity or use, the tokens issued by Global REIT will perform according to the success of its acquisitions. Token holders can be confident that their tokens are backed by these properties, and they will enjoy free stays and other perks through their ownership of these tokens.

Funds raised by the sale of GREM tokens will allow the fund management company to carry out its operations, such as marketing the properties, and funds raised from the sale of GRET tokens will help fund acquisitions of properties. The dividend for GREM will start at two percent and eventually drop to 1.25 percent of the net asset value (NAV), and the dividend for GRET will remain at a steady eight percent of investment in assets under management. As the project grows along with its acquisitions, the dividends will grow proportionally.

The pre-ICO will take place during the month of May and the ICO will take place during the month of June. During the crowdsale, GREM will sell for $0.07 and GRET for $1, with bonuses available that reward the earliest participants. Investors interested in tokens backed by tangible assets may want to look further into this ground-breaking project.

IAGON: AI Cloud Storage

The IAGON cloud storage platform uses AI.

Seeking to disrupt the exponentially-growing cloud data storage industry, IAGON is building a platform that will do so in a decentralized manner employing the blockchain, and using AI to add value to the data. By offering this valuable service, IAGON will be able to meet the growing needs of businesses and consumers.

The cloud storage industry is dominated by a few large players, such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Google, that are able to use their economies of scale to prevent competitors from arising. Some estimates put the market share of these three companies at over 90 percent. While this market dominance is beneficial to the companies’ shareholders, it comes at the expense of businesses that could benefit from better pricing brought by increased competition. According to Gartner, a research and advisory company, the industry will grow from about $288 million worldwide in 2018 to about $383 million in 2020. The rapid advancement of data intensive technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI), is fueling much of this growth. Businesses are finding it convenient and cost-effective to store data on third-party servers.

In contrast to the centralized services of the dominant players in the industry, IAGON will reward users who share their free computer space and unused processing power to create the world’s largest supercomputer that offers data storage cheaper and with greater security. As a distributed network lacking a centralized storage center, IAGON will be able to offer better pricing for users, enabling it to gain a significant market share. Moreover, IAGON will use AI to secure the network and analyze the data to generate useful information from it.

The native token of the platform is IAG, an ERC20 token that runs on top of the Ethereum blockchain. While initially IAGON will be compatible with Ethereum, there are plans to make it compatible with the IOTA Tangle and other blockchains in the future. IAG will be rewarded to users who share computing resources, and will be used as payment for buying storage or data from the platform. No more than 1,000,000,000 IAG tokens will be created.

The presale for IAGON began on April 2, 2018 and ends April 30, 2018. However, for those who missed out on the presale, a main crowdsale will take place on May 15, 2018 and last 30 to 60 days. The project has an outstanding 4.5 ICOBench rating. Given the explosive growth of the cloud storage and AI industries in the coming years, the potential for IAGON will be massive.

Konios: F2F Cryptocurrency Exchange

Konios offers a F2F cryptocurrency exchange.

To ensure cryptocurrencies can be used by as many people as possible, the Konios platform has been designed to make cryptocurrency trading as secure and simple as possible. The Konios platform facilitates face-to-face (F2F) transactions with a user-rating system to incentivize honesty.

There are several steps involved in the F2F transactions. The first step is selecting the cryptocurrency to trade and the amount one wishes to trade using the app. The search function of the app will then find those who have what the user is looking for in the vicinity of the user. Users will be able to send a request to other users specifying the cryptocurrency they want to buy or sell, the amount, the date and time.

Once the other party agrees to a transaction, the equivalent amount of cryptocurrency is deducted from the account and stored in a smart contract. As an added security measure, users must scan a QR code to show they are present when meeting F2F. After the  transfer of cash at an agreed-upon location, both users will confirm that they have completed the transaction. The smart contract holding the funds will then release the cryptocurrency to the buyer. After the transaction is finished, the users can rate one another, thereby providing valuable information for future users of the platorm when dealing with them.

Just as the plaform is open to individuals, businesses can join to reap the benefits of F2F transactions, either buying or selling. Moreover, businesses can earn extra income by providing a secure checkpoint for transactions between users. For very large transactions, users can request a validator familiar and trained in the process to validate the transaction for a small fee.

Besides facilitating F2F transactions, Konios will offer a secure wallet allowing users to send and receive cryptocurrencies, exchange cryptocurrencies, and trade goods and services for cryptocurrencies. Combined, these features will make cryptocurrencies more appealing to ordinary investors.

As a Swiss financial platform, Konios will comply with the financial laws of Switzerland, especially as they relate to money-laundering.  Konios will take the necessary security measures to safegard accounts. Konios is headquartered in Zug, Switzerland, a hub of blockchain innovation in Europe.

Integral to the Konios ecosystem is the KON token that is issued to users as a reward for their participation, such as for registering on the platform and receiving positive feedback. KON tokens will also be airdropped to loyal token holders, thus reinforcing their ownership and loyalty to the platform. KON tokens will also be used as a basis for all transactions without which they cannot occur. The KON token is an ERC20 standard token based on the Ethereum blockchain.

The Konios ICO is taking place from May 1, 2018 to June 30, 2018. During the ICO, each KON token will sell for $0.01, with bonuses given to the earliest participants who join. As a financial platform based in Swizerland and using F2F transactions, this will be an interesting project to watch.

Joy Token: Gaming Platform Powered by Blockchain

Joy Token is a gaming platform powered by blockchain.

Using blockchain technology, Joy Token is an ecosystem for gaming developers, players, and casinos. Using the benefits of the blockchain, Joy Token will bring trust to the industry that currently is filled with distrust and concerns about cheating.

Given the widespread distrust in the online gaming industry due to software that is not open-source and some casinos not paying out winnings, the blockchain upends the status quo with transparent and immutable transactions that can be analyzed by the public. Joy Token will use a proprietary random number generator (RNG) that will ensure fairness for players. As a platform using smart contracts on the blockchain, the winnings issued to players are automatic and mathematically derived.

The Joy Token platform uses the Ethereum blockchain based on its widespread use, security, and ability to execute smart contracts. Smart contracts execute automatically without the need for third parties, lowering the costs of transactions. The JOY token, the utility token of the platform for transactions and receiving rewards, is ERC20 compatible and can be stored in popular Ethereum wallets such as MyEtherWallet and Mist. The Joy Token smart wallet used within the platform can store the JOY tokens of users and allow them to enter and leave games within the ecosystem with an instantly-updated balance.

Developers who join the platform and contribute to the growth of the ecosystem receive numerous benefits. First and foremost, developers will be able to reach out to the players within the ecosystem to earn revenues therein. The platform will provide liquidity to developers from the service providers who are willing to promote their games. As a licensed platform that is fully compliant with the laws, developers who join will have the peace of mind in knowing that their games will be played on a legally compliant platform.

The Joy Token crowdsale is taking place from March 20, 2018 to April 19, 2018. Fortunately for participants, the soft cap has been reached with over $3,000,000 raised so far. Participants can purchase JOY tokens through the crowdsale with BTC, ETH, and wire transfer. The maximum number of JOY tokens that will be created is 700,000,000, allowing the JOY token to have value tied to use of the platform.

DataBroker DAO: IoT Sensor Data Revolution

DataBroker DAO is an IoT sensor data market.

With a revolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) upon us, the data created by sensors becomes a great source of value. DataBroker DAO is a decentralized marketplace for the trading of IoT sensor data that will allow for its greater and more varied use.

Though there were an estimated 8.4 billion devices around the world capable of connecting to the internet in 2017, this figure is expected to rise to 30 billion by 2020. The market for IoT is also expected to reach $7 trillion by 2020. The proliferation of IoT devices is generating an exponential growth of the data they create, which has enormous potential value. DataBroker DAO will create a marketplace powered by the blockchain that will allow users to monetize and purchase this data in a secure and cost-effective way.

The blockchain on which this platform will be based is Ethereum. Ethereum is a second-generation blockchain that allows for trustless transactions with smart contract capabilities. Smart contracts allow users to automatically execute agreements without intermediaries when both parties have fulfilled their part of the agreement. This disintermediation has the effect of substantially lowering the costs of transactions, rendering third parties such as brokers as useless.

The DataBroker DAO platform will allow users of IoT sensors to transmit data directly to the buyers of data using smart contracts. This potential for monetization will be a boon for individuals and businesses, who can capitalize on this data for extra income. Businesses in particular will be able to offset the costs of purchasing and maintaining their IoT infrastructure by selling this data. Telecommunications companies, also known as gateways, will also be able to monetize their networks by making them compatible with the platform, thus collecting fees from the transactions involving sensor owners within their network. Buyers, in turn, can use the data in raw form however they wish or may use artificial intelligence to further derive more useful data to resell it at a premium.

The DTX token is needed to purchase data in the platform and is used to reward sellers and gateways. As an ERC20 token, it can be exchanged for other currencies and fiat currencies at exchanges. Of the revenues of transactions, sellers keep 80 percent, gateways keep 10 percent, and the platform keeps 10 percent. This reward structure ensures that all parties are incentivized to participate in the ecosystem.

From March 19 to April 25, 2018, DataBroker DAO will have a presale in which one ETH will buy 6,000 DTX. Starting April 26 and running for four weeks, the main sale will take place, during which one ETH will buy 4,000 DTX. This project is interesting in that it involves two exponentially growing and disruptive areas: blockchain and IoT. If DataBroker DAO can follow through on its roadmap and capture just a fraction of the IoT market, it will be a major global force with which to contend, potentially revolutionizing the industry.

European Crypto Bank: Future Cryptobank

The European Crypto Bank makes cryptocurrency investing easy.

We are witnessing the dawn of a new asset class that will disrupt every major industry around the world, facilitated by the creation of blockchain technology. This asset class, currently valued over $250 billion, is cryptocurrencies. The European Crypto Bank‘s mission is to make the ownership and exchange of cryptocurrencies easy for everyone with its online platform.

Understandably, the traditional financial system has been hostile to the emergency of cryptocurrencies with attempts to deligitimize them. The CEO of JPMorgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, made the news last year for asserting that anyone at his company trading bitcoin should be fired. Since then, Mr. Dimon has backtracked on his attacks, showing that the traditional banking system must come to terms with the potential of blockchain technology, lest they fall behind in the industry by not embracing the latest innovations.

Blockchain technology, and in particular smart contracts, is especially menacing from the perspective of traditional finance because it renders intermediaries such as bankers and brokers unnecessary. Using the blockchain, users can transact in a secure and trustless manner, with contracts executing once the preconditions of both parties are fulfilled. This automated form of contract execution has the potential to significantly lower costs and increase efficiencies in many industries. The European Crypto Bank stands out by aiming to merge cryptocurrencies with traditional finance, so that users can enjoy the security and convenience of cryptocurrencies while receiving guidance from financial professionals to ensure they are in compliance with regulations.

The European Crypto Bank will allow users to trade major cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies in a fast and convenient manner. The platform will also allow users to exchange cryptocurrencies for traditional assets and services such as stocks, bonds, insurance, and real estate. By providing an array of financial services on a single platform, the European Crypto Bank will make managing finances easier for users.

One aspect that differentiates the European Crypto Bank from competitors is its focus on compliance with regulations around the world. Users will have to provide documentation to comply with KYC (“Know Your Customer”) and AML (“Anti-Money Laundering) laws, and will in turn be assisted by a team of tax experts to ensure they are in compliance with their jurisdiction. The adherence of these laws will bring greater confidence to not only the platform but also the cryptocurrency market as a whole, encouraging greater adoption of them by the public.

The native token of the platform, ECB, is ERC20 compliant, and thus can be stored in popular Ethereum wallets such as MyEtherWallet and Mist. In total, no more than 677,283,261 ECB tokens will be created, thus protecting token holders with a fixed supply. ECB tokens can be used to purchase services on the platform, and can also be used as collateral and to obtain credit.

The ICO for the European Crypto Bank is taking place from February 16, 2018 to May 1, 2018. From now to April 22, 2018, each ECB token will sell for .59 euro, with a seven percent bonus added. From April 23, 2018 to the end of the ICO, each ECB will sell for .63 euro. Investors must buy a minimum of 20 ECB tokens to participate. The soft cap for the project is 5,000,000 euros and the hard cap is 200,000,000 euros. Interestingly, the project has received a solid 4.3 rating from ICOBench. Cryptocurrency enthusiasts interested in a platform bringing liquidity to traders and investors, and that promotes compliance with tax laws, may want to look further into this bold project.

Midex: Finance Powered by Blockchain

Midex will provide financial services powered by blockchain.

With growing interest and use of cryptocurrencies, financial providers are needed to bridge the gap between cryptocurrencies and traditional finance. Midex is a licensed company that will offer its customers an array of financial services to meet their needs and bring cryptocurrencies to the masses.

Blockchain technology is transforming finance with its transparency, security, immutability, and cost-effectiveness. Transactions on the blockchain can be viewed by anyone, preventing hidden transactions or costs. The blockchain is also exceptionally secure, given that it is distributed and not dependent on any particular server that can be compromised. Transactions on the blockchain are immutable, preventing data from being manipulated or tampered with. Second and third generation blockchains such as Ethereum and Cardano have smart contract capabilities, allowing users to execute contracts with one another without intermediaries. The disintermediation of the blockchain thus brings substantial cost-savings to users. For the industry of finance, the disruption blockchain will bring in the coming years cannot be overstated, and Midex intends to be at the vanguard of this disruption.

Midex stands out from other companies issuing tokens by having a licensed exchange, Midex Exchange, that is live and operational. The exchange enables users to trade major cryptocurrencies and exchange them with fiat currencies. Over time, the currency pairs available for trading will expand. Being a licensed exchange in Estonia will give users more confidence in the platform, given that the company must abide by Estonian regulations. Besides its presence in Estonia, the company is headquartered in Hong Kong, with an additional branch in Russia.

Besides a licensed exchange, Midex will provide a debit and credit card, loans, insurance, and investment services. Later this year, after the crowdsale has completed, Midex will aim for a banking license. By providing these services, Midex will essentially fulfill all of services provided by banks, and will differentiate itself by serving the growing appetite of the public for cryptocurrencies. By using the Midex debit or credit card, users will be able to spend cryptocurrencies to buy real-world goods and services at millions of locations around the world. All of these services will be accessible using a user-friendly Dapp (decentralized application) on mobile, tablet, laptop, and desktop devices.

The native token of the platform, MDX, is ERC20 compliant and runs on top of the Ethereum blockchain. The token can be used to buy premium services and goods, access credit, and receive some of the revenue generated by the platform. In total, 75,000,000 MDX will be minted.

The Midex crowdsale is ongoing and ends April 15, 2018. During the crowdsale, each MDX token will sell for $1. Investors interested in a platform that aims to displace traditional financial institutions by offering consumers the full benefits of blockchain technology may want to consider, while doing their own due diligence, looking further into this project.

OTPPay: Making Cryptocurrencies Mainstream

OTPPay will allow the mainstream to use cryptocurrencies.

With blockchain technology potentially lowering the costs of transactions and providing greater transparency, OTPPay intends to be a leading online wallet using the blockchain to allow ordinary individuals to use cryptocurrencies whenever they wish. OTPPay stands for Omni Token Platform for Payments, which, besides facilitating payments, will also provide loans.

Blockchain technology is becoming an increasingly disruptive force in finance, given its distributed and decentralized nature. As a distributed and decentralized ledger, all users can see transactions that cannot be modified or reversed by any one party. Because transactions are immutable, they allow parties to transact in a trustless manner that does not require third parties such as brokers or traditional payment processors. Blockchain technology is also extremely secure, giving confidence to its users. Second-generation blockchains such as Ethereum can execute smart contracts, which are contracts that automatically execute when the conditions of two parties to a transaction are fulfilled.

By using blockchain technology, OTPPay will lower the costs for merchants and bring savings to consumers by letting them transact without intermediaries. The dominant payment processors of today charge one to five percent for transactions, which not only reduces profits for merchants but also leads to increased costs for consumers, given that the costs are passed on to them. By contrast, OTPPay will charge .5 percent to support the further development and marketing of the platform.

The reduced costs for merchants will be especially beneficial to those with thin margins and those saddled with costs. With substantial cost savings for merchants, some of this will be passed onto consumers in the form of loyalty programs and other discounts. For the billions of unbanked people in the world today, particularly in developing countries, the ability to bypass the traditional banking system by making payments using mobile devices will provide new opportunities to obtain needed goods and services. Additionally, OTPPay will provide lending services with credit ratings based on the histories of customers.

Though OTPPay will offer debit cards, users can pay for goods and services with a user-friendly app that allows them to scan the QR code of a merchant to make an instant payment. The platform will also allow payments to be made using NFC (near field communication), which allows payments to be made in a contactless manner using a mobile device. The app will allow users to see their ownership of cryptocurrencies and transaction histories, and will allow users to set their own security settings. Importantly, the platform will use advanced algorithms to detect fraud and protect users.

The native token of the platform, OTP, will be used as the basis for all transactions and will be required to use the platform. As the native token of the platform, it will ensure continuous liquidity and frictionless trading with other cryptocurrencies. 1,000,000,000 OTP tokens will be minted in total, with no possibility to create or mint new ones, thus supporting the value of this utility token. Each month, .10 percent of the transaction revenues earned by the platform will be used to buy back tokens that will be permanently burned, reducing the supply over time.

The pre-ICO of OTPPay is taking place from March 5, 2018 to April 3, 2018. The ICO will take place from April 4, 2018 to June 2, 2018. During the pre-ICO, one ETH will purchase 16,000 OTP tokens, and during the ICO one ETH will purchase 8,000. As an innovative project aiming to disrupt finance, OTPPay will be a project to keep an eye on.

Altair VR: Next Generation Encyclopedia

Altair VR is a next generation encyclopedia.

To make learning more interactive and enjoyable, and to bring virtual reality (VR) to the masses, Altair VR is developing an VR encyclopedia powered by the blockchain to achieve these goals. The team behind Altair VR has been using VR to encourage appreciation for astronomy among hundreds of thousands of children in Russia. With this new project, they aim to expand the possibilities of the technology.

The team behind Altair VR began by building 15-foot wide mobile domes that children could enter for an 3D immersive experience with outer space. These domes became highly popular in Russia, giving children a newfound appreciation and understanding of astronomy. With the advancement of technology and seeking to bring VR to wider audiences, the team decided to use VR headsets that could expand the possibilities of VR for children and adults.

The advantages of VR for education have been made evident from studies on learning. The involvement of immersive experiences in learning promotes active rather than passive learning, where participants can directly engage in the subject matter, thus making it more relevant. Additionally, VR promotes direct rather than symbolic learning, which can reinforce concepts and facilitate greater understanding of the subject matter. VR can also be used as a supplemental mode of learning that complements rather than replaces traditional learning with textbooks.

Using a VR headset, the possibilities for users are expanded to many different subjects. Users can go back in time to see dinosaurs in action, previous events in history such as ancient Egypt and Rome, and can go forward in time to see what the future may be like. Users can zoom in to the interactions of atoms and molecules; travel through the human body to see its organs and functioning; and can zoom out and see larger bodies such as planets, stars, and galaxies. Users can also be teleported from one place or period of time to another as they wish.

The blockchain will allow for the use of the utility token of the platform, ALT, to access premium content created by users. Users who create content can decide if they will charge others to access their creations. This can incentivize artists and software developers to express their creativity in a manner that promotes entertainment and learning. Because transactions on the blockchain are secure and immutable, users can be assured of the status of transactions. As an ERC20 token, ALT can be stored in popular Ethereum wallets and traded at exchanges. Additionally, the immutable nature of the blockchain will protect copyrights on the platform, which are critical for encouraging creativity.

To raise funds to bring this grand vision to reality and promote learning all over the world, Altair VR is having a crowdsale. The first part of the crowdsale, the pre-ITO (“initial token offering”), will take place from March 20, 2018 to April 15, 2018. The second part of the crowdsale, the ITO, will take place from April 16, 2018 to May 31, 2018. In total, 1,000,000,000 ALT tokens will be minted, and the tokens dedicated to the team will be frozen for one year to incentivize the development of the platform. With their dedication and focus on making learning entertaining, the Altair team has plenty of potential to take VR to the next level.
