V-ID Token (VIDT)
V-ID is a service that detects any unlawful manipulation of any digital file. In order to make files verifiable, they must be validated. V-ID’s validation process involves extracting the fingerprints of files and saving them in the blockchain. If a file is changed with just one byte, pixel, character or anything else, the fingerprint is changed and V-ID will detect it 100%.
The V-ID Token (VIDT) is what makes validations possible. V-ID appoints wallets to issuing organizations containing a balance of VIDT.
Every time an organization validates a file a VIDT transaction is made which records all necessary details (filetype, validation location, timestamp, identity). The VIDT token used in the transaction will be reducted from the validating organization’s wallet.
Lition is developing the world’s first scalable public-private blockchain with deletable data features, made for commercial products. This state-of-the-art protocol enables blockchain-based applications to step out of their current niche into commercial mainstream deployment.
Blockchain development is co-innovated with SAP, whose chief innovation officer Dr. Jürgen Müller is also an advisor to Lition. SAP, a company with >400 million users and >10,000 developers, is developing the decentralized ledger and smart contract layer, while Lition is providing the open consensus layer. Lition will run the public mainnet using Lition tokens issued in an ICO for transaction execution, staking and sidechain creation.
Lition is well positioned to design a blockchain infrastructure for business use, as it launched the world’s first P2P energy trading dApp that is commercially live in a mass market with real revenues and real customers in over 25 cities. In addition to this existing P2P trading dApp, there is a second use case in which Lition, together with a major Bank and a real estate company, has developed an MVP to syndicate loans, and later tokenize the loans as Security Tokens (STOs). Beyond this, there are many more use cases with the potential to disrupt not only the Energy and Banking spaces, but many others as well.
Furthermore, SAP can easily implement this blockchain into their existing products and services for their customer base of >400,000, making them immediately ready for blockchain use cases. It is therefore well positioned to become the standard mainnet for business applications.
LTO Network (LTO)
Digitalization and automation of business processes offer great benefits in terms of productivity and cost reduction. Organizations struggle to tap into these benefits for interorganizational processes, partly due to a lack of trust. Bitcoin has proven how blockchain can use distribution and cryptography to provide a system that does not rely on trust.
LTO builds upon this foundation with a decentralized workflow engine employed for ad-hoc collaboration. Information is shared between parties using per-process private event chains and hashed on a public blockchain. This hybrid approach allows organizations to meet any data protection regulations and prevents scalability issues that are typically associated with blockchain projects.
GET Protocol (GET)
The GET Protocol is a blockchain-based protocol that is used by ticketing companies to completely merge the primary and secondary ticketing market. The protocol gives complete control over the sale and trade between ticket holder from the moment the rst ticket is sold until the last ticket is scanned. The platform’s own ERC20 token, the GET, functions as a FIAT value locking asset in a user’s wallet/smart ticket. The FIAT value of GET is set at the start of an event cycle.
By this value locking mechanism all actors are shielded from crypto volatility during an event cycle. GUTS Tickets is based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and has a working smart ticketing application that is already used by big event organizers in the Netherlands. This experience and operational readiness of its team makes the company perfectly positioned to develop the GET Protocol as the company is able to build the protocol and improve and deploy it incrementally.
RealT, or Real Token LLC, is building a system for tokenizing property in the United States, that retains all legal rights and protections provided by traditional ownership of real estate.
When designing the RealT project, certain goals were established for achieving the effective tokenization of real estate. To be an effective asset-backed digital token, the RealToken was designed to encompass the following characteristics:
To enable legally-recognized ownership of a discrete real property asset, not an IOU of ownership;
To be freely transferable to anyone without restriction, as any real estate property is, subject to applicable U.S. securities law transfer restrictions;
To give RealToken holders rights to all cash flows generated by the real property held by the Series; and
To enable all rights and activities associated with traditional ownership, for example, the right to access the property.
For the first phase of RealT, all listed properties will be rented properties. In order to prove the reality of tokenized real estate in its fullest, it is important to illustrate the full rights of RealTokens owners. Receiving rental payments from tenants is one of the most salient mechanisms in which full rights over the property are conveyed. While ownership of property via a token is noteworthy; adding in rights to the cash flows generated by rent from tenants makes things far more interesting.
With the advent of smart-contracts, there is no reason to retain the archaic system of payment every 30 days. Instead of one lump sum paid out every month, a RealToken Rent Contract will manage the dispersal of funds to RealToken owners, so that they are able to collect rent on a daily basis.
Blockchain technology has provided a way to maintain consensus across all nodes with no central authority. However the technology faces fundamental issues like a lack of real-time transaction settlement and scalability. Despite improved consensus algorithms, Some blockchain implementations such Bitcoin or Ethereum synchronize one block at a time. This results in slow confirmation times, one of the biggest factors stopping blockchain technology from being widely used across many industries. Although Smart Contract platforms such as Cardano and EOS have started to emerge, public Distributed Ledgers are still not widely used.
To address these persistent issues, a new model based on the Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) was developed. FANTOM is a new DAG based Smart Contract platform that intends to solve the scalability issues of existing public distributed ledger technologies. The platform intends to distinguish itself from the traditional block ledger-based storage infrastructure by attempting to employ an improved version of existing DAG-based pro-tocols. The FANTOM platform adopts a new protocol known as the “Lachesis Protocol” to maintain consensus. This protocol is intended to be integrated into the Fantom OPERA Chain. The aim is to allow applications built on top of the FANTOM OPERA Chain to enjoy instant transactions and near zero transaction costs for all users.
The mission of FANTOM is to provide compatibility between all transaction bodies around the world, and create an ecosystem which allows real-time transactions and data sharing with low cost.
In the last few years, the cryptocurrency community has steadily grown. However, the fact remains that this community is still in the early stages of expansion and is a continuously expanding market which offers great opportunities for traders all around the world. Presently, there are over 1,600 cryptocurrencies, above 10,450 markets and a total market cap of nearly $400 billion as per statistics available at coinmarketcap.com (date: 1st June 2018). In 2017, the prices of popular virtual currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum soared to record highs amid increased investor interest. There are now hundreds of cryptocurrencies to choose from – with more appearing each passing day. Choice paralyzes – this adds cost, complexity and the need for advice. Given that cryptocurrency can be high risk, has extreme volatility, and can be difficult to buy and store safely. An effective and diverse portfolio of coins can be a complex problem especially, when you like to store them at a safe place and claim their individual features for a passive income.
Stakenet, with the ticker XSN, is a Trustless Proof of Stake (TPoS) blockchain that addresses the issue of cryptocurrencies for nontechnical people by providing a simple user interface to access all the features of our 4th generation meta network.

Ampleforth purports to be a token that is balanced around an equilibrium price target, but says that it does not qualify as a stablecoin, at least initially.
The cryptocurrency is designed to periodically add or subtract tokens from an investor’s holdings in order to match exchange rate fluctuations, meaning that it has a correspondingly fluctuating market capitalization.
I think the best way to look at it is that your holdings are completely non-dillutive.
If you own, for example 1% of the network, you’ll always own 1% of the network until you decide to buy or sell. We think this is a great property of the system.
This also means that this token is expected to have a low correlation with bitcoin (BTC) compared with other crypto assets
Today’s digital assets are highly correlated, largely following the movement pattern of Bitcoin. An asset like Amples which will have a different movement pattern from current-generation digital assets, this makes the asset uniquely suited for the following use cases.
1. Near term — Diversification in crypto portfolios.
2. Mid term — As reserve collateral in decentralized banks such as Maker DAO.
3. Long term — An alternative to central-bank money, like bitcoin but macroeconomically friendly.
Synthetix was originally known as Havven and held its ICO around February 2018 for its ERC-20 token, HAV. Price of 1 HAV equals to 0.67 USD. The goal at the time of launch was to be a decentralized payment network which uses a dual token system to issue stablecoins (nUSD) backed by HAV as collateral. HAV holders were then rewarded with a % of fees generated from all nUSD transactions as result of keeping nUSD stable.
Going forward, the team realized that they can do so much more than just creating a stablecoin. The major rebranding to Synthetix was announced on 30th Nov 2018 and HAV became SNX.
Stretching the full potential of the Synthetix platform, it now enables the creation of on-chain synthetic assets which an oracle is used to track the price movement of the same assets in the real world. This has opened up a wide variety of synthetic assets that any user can mint such as stable coins that are pegged to the price of fiat currencies or dollars pegged to mental/indices/commodities, provided it is offered on the exchange. Synthetic assets allows exposure to the price action of the asset without holding the underlying asset. If you do not want the hassle of dealing with KYC on the exchanges and is bullish on the price of Bitcoin in the future, you can buy sBTC to gain exposure to the value of BTC.
For people who are on the other side of the trend (bearish), there are inverse synthetic assets to short the price and gain profit when the price of the asset decreases. (iBTC) More synthetic assets of other popular asset classes and cryptocurrencies will soon be introduced as the exchange gains traction and demand for a certain asset from the community arises.
