Setting up your Ledger Nano X wallet

Now that you have unboxed Nano X wallet and seen its contents, the next step is to set it up. You can set up the device using your iOS or Android mobile phone. You can also use your computer to set it up.

If you are using your mobile phone to set up the Ledger Nano X, you should use their ledger Live app. Once you access the app, select the device you are setting up (in this case, Ledger Nano X). For brand new devices, choose the “Initialize as a new device” option. Proceed to set a pin code on your Nano X. At this stage, you don’t need to use the Live app. However, the app helps guide you through the steps involved in setting up the device.

The ledger app has some cool security suggestions that you can consider if you desire extra security for your cryptocurrency assets. It will give you 24 words recovery phrase. Save the recovery phrase as it would be useful in case something happens. Once you are done with this, Ledger will ask you to confirm if you followed their advice.

The next step is to pair your Nano X device with your mobile phone. Ensure that Bluetooth is turned on on your mobile phone. Your Nano X and phone will be connected once you follow all the instructions.

After pairing your device, proceed to select it from the menu on the Ledger app. Ledger Live will advise you to set a password lock to ensure that people can’t have access to your cryptocurrency information even when they handle your phone. Next, It will ask you the information you are willing to share with them. Once you choose the data, your device setup is complete and ready for use.

The USB C cable attached to your device is to help you connect it with your computer. Although it is easier to set up Nano X via your mobile device, you can also use the more traditional USB mode on your computer.

You can easily add new coins to your device from the Ledger Live app. Each time you want to do so, you will have to install the app for the cryptocurrency. For example, if you want to add Bitcoin to your wallet, you will need to install the Bitcoin app on the device. Once you have installed the app, you will be required to create an account for that cryptocurrency before you can receive and send funds.

More apps, Bluetooth feature, and security

The Ledger Nano X is designed to be an upgrade to the Nano S in every way. Nano X is designed to support up to a hundred apps simultaneously. Thus, you can install apps for each cryptocurrency you hold on your wallet.

EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) Guide

The primary aim of Ethereum is to become the supercomputer of the blockchain space. The creation of its Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) allows it to revolutionise the smart contract industry, making it possible for people to operate smart contract without any complications.

Ledger Nano X - The secure hardware wallet

What is Ethereum?

To understand what the EVM does, you need to understand what Ethereum is and its position in the blockchain sector. Ethereum is an open blockchain network that allows people to develop and operate decentralised applications (dApps) that function on a blockchain.

Similar to Bitcoin, Ethereum is a decentralized blockchain, which means there is no central authority controlling it. However, unlike the Bitcoin blockchain, Ethereum’s was designed to be both flexible and adaptable. Thus, it is easy to create new apps on the Ethereum network.

What is the EVM?

THE Ethereum Virtual Machine can be viewed as a quasi-Turing complete machine that is designed to implement the execution model of the Ethereum network. It does this by providing a runtime environment for smart contracts execution which, afterwards alters the nature of the blockchain.

EVM is a strong, sandboxed virtual stack that is found within each full Ethereum node and it is charged with carrying out contract bytecode. Before being compiled to the EVM bytecode, which is the machine’s own programing language, the smart contracts are written in high-level languages such as Solidity.

The EVM is a crucial part of how the Ethereum blockchain operates as it is tasked with handling the internal state and the computations executed on the system. The EVM also handles account information regarding balances, gas prices, block information, and addresses.

Ledger Nano X - The secure hardware wallet

How does the EVM work on the Ethereum Blockchain?

As a quasi-Turing complete machine, computation on the Ethereum Virtual Machine is tied to a parameter called Gas. The Gas is the unit cost of running an operation on the Ethereum virtual machine.

Before a smart contract is deployed on the machine, the gas cost for every operation in the program will be estimated in advanced. Afterwards, the costs of the operations are paid for before the program is executed. Thus, with this, the number of operations that can be carried out by the Ethereum Virtual Machine per program is limited as the programs sometimes run out of gas.

On the machine, the memory grows as needed. Developers cannot have out-of-bounds memory access, and they only pay the gas price for a change in their contract’s memory size. The execution model of the blockchain specifies how the network can be altered using a series of bytecode instructions that are obtained from smart contracts by the Ethereum Virtual Machine compiler, and a few other environmental data.

A chain of immutable transactions which have already been carried out, mined, and permanently stored on the blockchain usually represent the state of the network. Each time new transactions are mined and executed, the blockchain alters into a new state. The EVM is tasked with implementing the execution model by providing a runtime environment for smart contracts that were compiled by its compiler. The machine manages the execution of transactions started by contracts and them alters the Ethereum blockchain to a new state.

How the EVM secures the Ethereum blockchain

The EVM ensures that the Ethereum blockchain remains secure. It achieves this by implementing four major restrictions on the network.

  • Every computation step taken in executing a smart contract must be paid for. Thus, ensuring that Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks do not happen. When computation steps are paid for before execution, it ensures that malicious programs will run out of gas at some point and it would be terminated.
  • Smart contracts on the network can only communicate with each other by transmitting a single arbitrary-length byte array. EVM ensures that they do not have access to each other’s respective state.
  • Thirdly, smart contract executions are sandboxed, which means that an EVM program could access and alter its own internal state and could also trigger the implementation of other EVM programs. Outside that, they can’t do anything else.
  • Lastly, smart contracts’ execution on the Ethereum network is fully deterministic and brings forth identical state transitions.

The restrictions by EVM has been instrumental in shaping the design of the Ethereum blockchain.

Reading Time: 5 minutes

As 2018 is slowly dragging to its end, it’s time to start thinking about the future. What awaits us in the ICO and the blockchain world in 2019? We can’t know everything 100%, but here is the list of 10 decentralized finance and banking projects set to rock the blockchain industry to the core in the following year:

1. Agate (AGT)

Agate (AGT) is an innovative, decentralized, and comprehensive crypto infrastructure for day-to-day banking and dealer transactions. It provides instant payment without volatility risk and high transaction fees. A platform consisting of a blockchain, two mobile apps, a fiat-pegged ecosystem, and API suite, plug-ins, add-ons, and a physical POS terminal, operating with a multi-currency mechanism, it is one of the highest ranked upcoming ICOs. Most of its modules are already built or working or have beta versions, and we predict it will have a bright future in the coming years.

2. Araw (ARAW)

Araw (ARAW) is an ecosystem aimed at simplifying the procedure of accepting payments with cryptocurrency for e-commerce owners who are regular people. Their mission is to combine the best aspects of e-commerce and payment industries, providing end-to-end solutions for e-commerce, touch&pay cryptocurrency card, online cryptocurrency payment, and developing a reward system on the Ethereum blockchain powered by the native ARAW token. Araw already has a massive community on Twitter and Telegram and a working MVP, so it is obvious that the team is serious and working hard toward success.

3. Natmin (NAT)

Natmin Pure Escrow (NAT) is a DApp offering pure escrow services built on blockchain technology. Eliminating the need for a middleman, Natmin provides secure transactions between the buyer and seller, reducing costs and lowering the risk of fraud. Natmin makes the entire process incredibly easy for everyone, even if you’re not well-versed in the escrow industry. Already listed on Bitmart exchange, Natmin has a clear roadmap for the years to come.

4. Quantocoin (QTC)

According to their whitepaper, Quantocoin (QTC) is the first global alternative asset with immediate liquidity and currency functionality, offering extreme speed, reliability, and efficiency at a low cost with optional anonymous transfers. To be more precise, Quantocoin involves earning and spending money, with the availability of investment and speculation. In addition to the noble cause of wanting to provide bank services to those without any access to them, the guys and gals at Quantocoin are certain they will reach the same success as bitcoin or other altcoins in a short time, thanks to their technology and massive expansion. We share at least a part of that enthusiasm and believe in them, as they already have an Android version of their app.

5. Victorieum (VTM)

Victorieum (VTM) is another project with great potential to unite the banking and cryptocurrency sector by creating its own cryptocurrency banking system with off-shore units. The platform’s aim is to provide end-to-end banking services such as credit cards, asset management, loans, and more. What separates Victorieum from its competitors though, is the feature of mitigating security risks through obligatory KYC of users, enabling all participants to invest, trade, and use crypto coins without any issues. Moreover, Victorieum already has a working product at such an early stage. High investment bonus and passive income program it offers are bound to attract investors and draw success in 2019.

6. Kinesis (KVT)

No automatic alt text available.

Kinesis (KVT) is a yield-bearing cryptocurrency based on 1:1 allocated physical gold and silver, with a goal to make an evolutionary step beyond any monetary and banking system around today. Buyers of Kinesis currencies are simultaneously allocated real gold or silver stored securely in one of the third-party vaults across the world, ensuring no counterparty risk. The digital coins (KAU for gold-based coin and KAG for silver-based coin) can be spent at the point of sale using the Kinesis debit card. When KAU and KAG are transferred between holders, the network collects a 0.45% fee which is then accumulated and distributed monthly in varying proportions to participants in the Kinesis monetary system called “yield”. Kinesis is an innovative project that will certainly catch the investors’ attention and already has a debit card feature in place. 2019 should definitely be their year.

7. Nexxo (NEXXO)

Nexxo (NEXXO) is a multinational blockchain-powered small business financial services platform, which aims to link all local/private blockchains and help grow small businesses’ operations, lower their expenses, and manage their surrounding ecosystem. They plan on doing this by providing financial and payment solutions to small businesses, ranging from corporate cards to point-of-sale systems, such as NEXXO IBAN, a NEXXO mobile wallet linked to a debit card with international remittance, and NEXXO token-to-fiat conversion functionality, NEXXO bank account management, and many more. We believe the team has a highly commercial product in the store, bound to attract mass adoption in the following year.

8. UniFox (FOX)

UniFox (FOX) is a complete crypto ecosystem that aims to become the MasterCard for cryptocurrencies. The concept is supported by four working products, with a goal to help the adoption of blockchain technology in the real world. Divided into five fully autonomous parts (stable cryptocurrency, ATMs, online exchange platforms, POS terminals, decentralized exchange), the platform promises to help cryptocurrencies stay independent and decentralized. And while it still has a lot of work to do, we like what we see and can’t wait to see them in action.

9. Midex (MDX)

Midex (MDX) is a digital asset exchange and financial platform, which already has a working cryptocurrency exchange. Currently, it is a host platform for Midex Exchange, Midex Banking debit cards, Midex Trust Fund, Midex Credit P2P MArketplace, and Midex Business Blockchain Development. All things considered, Midex is a powerful platform with a strong endorsement and is bound to continue its success in the new year.

10. Nauticus (NTS)

Nauticus (NTS) is an e-commerce, crypto, and fiat exchange platform, with a working MVP. Their aim is to have six banks working with six currencies (USD, EUR, JPY, HKD, AUD, and ZAR). And while the team behind Nauticus could be accused of too much confidence, it is not without reason. The project is quite innovative with a clear vision and the team itself is strong and experienced. On the basis of what the company has shown so far, it is safe to assume that they will continue yielding good results in 2019.

10 Smart Contract Projects That Will Be Huge in 2019

0

Reading Time: 5 minutes

With the end of 2018 drawing near, we have witnessed some very interesting developments in the budding world of the blockchain, smart contracts, and ICOs. Some of the projects experienced incredible success, while some flopped to underserved or well-deserved lows. Here’s a list of 10 smart contract projects that we expect to deliver success in 2019:

1. Lisk (LSK)

Often compared to the giant Ethereum, Lisk is a decentralized network platform that allows developers to build, publish, distribute, and monetize their JavaScript-based dapps within a custom-built cryptocurrency-powered system using custom blockchains, cloud storage, smart contracts, and computing nodes. Lisk has so far produced a long list of products, and what separates it from others is the use of blockchain apps within their own sidechains. We believe Lisk will continue to yield success in 2019, just like it has in the years before.

2. HyperLedger Fabric

HyperLedger Fabric is the platform powering the IBM Blockchain, so it’s no wonder we believe they’re going to be huge in 2019. As an open-source platform for analyzing, building, experimenting, and collaborating on the development of distributed ledger systems, HyperLedger provides immense possibilities to businesses who wish to build enterprise blockchains, address some of the common issues accompanying the process, and meet their business requirements. There are currently over 250 organizations supporting Hyperledger, and that number just keeps growing.

3. Stellar (XLM)

Stellar is an open, decentralized payment infrastructure opening a world of financial possibilities for the unbanked, such as opening financial accounts, starting micro-savings, applying for loans, etc. while at the same time allowing fast, reliable, and cost-efficient multi-currency transactions. The network and its native asset Lumens (XLM) have demonstrated their ability to fulfill their promises, so they’re bound to continue their success in 2019. Let’s not forget that the Stellar network is also a development platform that allows its users to create dapps through its smart contracts.

4. EOS (EOS)

EOS is a blockchain platform used for the development of decentralized applications. Dubbed the “Ethereum killer” due to its similarities and competitive advantages over Ethereum, EOS provides an operating-system-like set of services and functions that can be utilized by dapps. The goal of EOS is to take the best features of the various smart contract technologies, such as Bitcoin’s security and Ethereum’s computing support, and bind them together into a new platform. Currently boasting with over 200 decentralized apps developed with EOS, its success is bound to continue in 2019.

5. Ethereum (ETH)

An oldie, but goodie, Ethereum is an open-source decentralized blockchain-based giant that refuses to weaken in the face of time and increasing competition. It is ever-strong, with new features, partnerships, projects, and important developments such as the switch from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of Stake increasing the public interest and popularity of Ethereum. We predict Ethereum will continue its upward spiral in 2019.

6. Ethereum Classic (ETC)

A hard fork of the giant, Ethereum Classic’s ETC token was created in response to a hack affecting thousands of Ethereum users in 2016. ETC has attracted a sizeable community thanks to development projects such as the Emerald Software Developer Kit and ETC’s implementation of smart contracts, a feature that the currency’s developers are pushing in the Internet of Things sector. Ethereum Classic’s largest organization of developers called ETCDEV have been updating a general roadmap that includes ambitious plans for the future, such as introducing scalability through sidechains, IoT and Machine-to-Machine protocol, and more. We are therefore certain ETC is here to stay.

7. Stratis (STRAT)

Another veteran in the smart contract world, Stratis is a blockchain-as-a-service platform that allows businesses to build and deploy private chains and blockchain-based tools securely and quickly. The Stratis team has been working diligently, with a recent addition in the form of a platform for businesses to launch ICOs based on the Stratis blockchain. After the release of the company’s Breezer Wallet main net, the team has announced a new roadmap for the end of 2018, which includes the full production release of the Stratis Full Node, marking a key point in launching the full C# main net. Moreover, the company is preparing to release its C# smart contracts, as well as planning the second release of its ICO Platform. So we’re certain 2019 is going to be quite active for them.

8. Ark (ARK)

Ark is an open-source platform connecting different blockchains through “smart bridges”, a revolutionary system aimed at obtaining interoperability of the blockchains. SmartBridges connects two or more blockchains, allowing them to communicate and giving them the ability to trigger events on other chains. The platform is considered one of the fastest in the industry, with a speed of eight seconds per block. Although not a huge name like Ethereum or EOS, Ark nevertheless carries massive potential and has a great community behind it. With the dynamic fee system as one of its main selling points (letting the customer decide on the speed and cost of a transaction) and working MVPs, Ark is bound to be big in 2019.

9. XinFin (XDCE)

One of the newer names in blockchain industry, XinFin is the first ever hybrid blockchain platform which can simultaneously handle both public and private blockchains. With a blockchain dapp called TradeFinex, they aim to minimize the global infrastructure deficit through retail investor participation and to increase efficiency by workstream automation. XinFin also has a dapp called MyContract.co which delivers automated services for token crowdsale smart contracts. With all these competitive advantages, XinFin surely has a bright future in the industry and is bound to revolutionize blockchain technology.

10. Neo (NEO)

Last, but not least important, NEO, formerly known as Antshares, is a smart economy platform utilizing blockchain technology and digital identity to digitize assets, automating the management of digital assets via smart contracts. Dubbed as the “Ethereum of China”, NEO provides a dual-layered blockchain developed by Onchain DNA which is suitable for creating dapps and token sales. Its dual-token, smart-contract ecosystem and Delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance (DBFT) protocol successfully deal with issues with Ethereum’s scalability, making it a powerful competitor. Recently, NEO has begun trying to solidify itself as a platform in the lucrative video gaming industry worth billions of dollars. With its potential, it is highly possible that this might come true in 2019.

Reading Time: 5 minutesAfter a very exciting year in 2018, with booming ICOs, very highs and very lows, let’s turn our heads to the future! We have made our predictions, and while nothing is for granted, we expect these 10 tokens to make a rise in 2019.

Without any particular order, let’s see who we except to boom next year:

1. Komodo (KMD)

Komodo, the development platform and exchange with in-built privacy functions hold great promises. They have built a unique solution so far and started one of the only exchanges enabling atomic swaps between tokens. Their plan to launch the platform Komodo 2.0 should bring cross-chain smart contracts, UTXO-based smart contracts, and delayed proof-of-work security services. With federated multi-chain syncing they aim to achieve 1 million TPS. With the new release, the Komodo platform and coin holds great chances to boom in 2019!

2. Monero (XMR)

Monero is a privacy-token, with solid transaction schematics, ring signatures, and stealth addresses. It runs on a proof-of-work concept, whereby XMR holds at least the value of the electricity it was produced with. Monero was founded on 2 base principles of cryptocurrency: privacy and decentralization. Monero is backed by a huge community, who appreciate keeping their data completely safe and secret. This strong group of supporters most probably will keep this classic coin high in 2019.

3. Stellar (XLM)

Stellar so far has been boosting on cheap, fast and efficient cross-country payments. They offer 5-second transaction speed, and extremely low fees, which compared to the 5% transaction fee in the general market, is a huge advantage. Stellar has a fantastic management, and proven partnerships with giants as IBM. It also serves as a development platform for more crypto tokens, which require speed and efficiency. For example, it runs the Tempo remittances dApp, which can process 600,000 transactions for 0.01USD. Stellar seems to be growing at great paces, and is a solid investment for next year!

4. Basic Attention Token (BAT)

The Basic Attention Token has been developed to rethink how we consume and reward advertising content. The associated Brave browser has been boosting the download charts offering faster, ad-less Internet browsing, with over 4 million users. While the browser might not be perfect yet, there are significant developments, and it will serve as a base for using the BAT token. Brave and BAT give users a whole new way to perceive and get rewarded for ads while keeping publishers incentivized accordingly. Their project has a huge potential, industry experts, a working product, large community and they are set to success.

5. EOS (EOS)

EOS addresses some key issues in the Ethereum network as a development platform. EOS does not require its own programming language and provides extra services to developers. They overcame the scalability issues and provide faster transactions without gas. There is no coin mining, rather voting by selected block producers. There are now more than 200 decentralized applications developed on EOS, with very active users. Their token sale was a huge success in 2018, and they are supported by a great community. We expect EOS to boom in 2019.

6. OmiseGo (OMG)

OmiseGo aims to establish self-sovereign financial operation for the masses, targeting customers who do not have bank accounts and are excluded from the modern financial world. They have been making great progress in developing their Plasma network, which is scheduled to be released at the end of 2018 and is predicted to catapult the adoption and use of OmiseGo. This sets their boom right on time for the new year.

7. MakerDAO (MKR)

Stable coins are rising through the end of 2018 and are expected to grow in significance in 2019. The most popular stable coin Tether has been struggling, and the market is ripe for a better solution. MakerDAO with their DAI stable coin pegged to Ether has been growing at the end of 2018. They have received a significant investment from Andreesen Horowitz’s fund a16z, which is known to invest in companies as Facebook, Slack, and Twitter. MKR has a real use case, and the token has a lot of potentials, which will be noticed at least in 2019.

8. Civic (CVC)

Civic revolutionizes digital identity solutions, by providing secure storage for identity, with allowing the user to authorize the use of their identity real-time. Shortly, every time someone needs to prove who they are, now they can do quickly, safely and easily with Civic. They are growing a huge network of partners and users- for example, the above mentioned Brave browser and Bat, 0x exchange, Ubex, Dentacoin, and many more. With their growing network and great product, they are set for success in 2019!

9. Waltonchain (WTC)

Waltonchain is bringing harmony and efficiency to supply chains. Waltonchain allows individual organizations to align their processes on the Blockchain with the help of IoT and RFID. They have recently released their Q3 progress, and roadmap for the last quarter of 2018, which includes significant developments in hardware, like the RFID chip, and a subsidiary in Brazil. They have had also meetings with giants as LG, Pantos Logistics and Entrue Consulting, which show high hopes for the growth of Waltonchain.

10. 0x (ZRX)

In 2019 the masses are predicted to turn their heads towards decentralized crypto exchanges. 0x developed their own decentralized exchange protocol, which allows ERC20 tokens to be traded on the Ethereum Blockchain and makes for a much faster trading process eliminating unnecessary fees. 0x protocol hit many major milestones in their roadmap and eased its way into the development community. They are expected to grow to mass adoption in the crypto community next year.

Reading Time: 5 minutes

How Blockchain, Telegram / TON / TVM technology and the OZOTOP project will revolutionize today’s society

We saw in a globalized world, with infinite difficulties and conflicts. Problems of the complicated solution, disputes between countries, wars, terrorist attacks, environmental disasters, uncontrolled release of money, and many more that concern us. And we think about the number of solutions or ideals of life for all humanity. And this is where the OZOTOP Project comes with its proposal and will revolutionize the society model, providing a community free of negativity and scammers.

The great challenge

OZOTOP will offer humanity to move towards self-awareness, complete decentralization and self-regulation. The OZOTOP ecosystem is developed in a robotic model of a decentralized society based on the blockchain TON (Telegram Open Network “Telegram Open Network”) that Telegram will launch in 2019. It will be a community of experts regulated by bots (scripts, robots, algorithms ) with its robotic economy and will be compatible with smart contracts, bots and algorithms.

How exactly does it work

From the launch that Telegram will make, mentioned above, the project robots will be transferred from external servers to the TON blockchain and the interaction in this society will be carried out through the use of smart contracts and cryptocurrencies. Society itself will move towards total decentralization and self-government.

The members of this society will interact with the help of robots and make payments between them with the OZO token.

A robot administrator will be assigned to each expert, which are programmed to generate positive and efficient results.

Some robots will ask for the necessary information to get the service quickly. Others will calculate the cost and send a payment invoice. Some will make your payment method convenient for the expert to whom you have applied. Another robot will act as a guarantor of a secure transaction for all parties.

Robots also fulfil many other functions in this safer society, and they will increase, as functionalities require. This will also mean a growth in the number of experts and everyday users.

In this society, people will fulfil the functions that require non-standard solutions, intuition, creativity and professionalism. However, routine work will be automated, and robots will be involved. This will provide people with free time that they can devote to their self-development and the improvement of society.

The interfaces (a user component) of the robots, to serve our society, will be integrated into Telegram, which has the function of implementing its development in the messenger.

The OZOTOP project will allow you to access this society and use all its opportunities and functions, using your smartphone, Telegram and OZOTOP.

It will be a self-regulated expert society based on Telegram Open Network and backed by robots and bots.
Instead of laws, the interaction in this type of society will be regulated by robots, algorithms and scripts.

It will be a society free from fraud and negativism (all will interact through the custody service). It will be a highly efficient and productive model of society.

OZOTOP – a reality at your fingertips

OZOTOP is the token, based on Waves blockchain technology, with a final destination to migrate to the TON blockchain (Telegram Open Network «Telegram Open Network»). It will be the group of smart assets listed on Waves DEX and connected in a single OZOTOP project token.

OZOTOP will start with Waves blockchain and Waves DEX because it is the most efficient way to protect investors and raise funds for project development. They will be smart asset scripts that will be connected in an OZOTOP project token with the following functions:

Automatic listing of the OZOTOP project token in Waves DEX It will be as an IEO presale, at the same time, for 1% tokens with a fixed price 0.000003 BTC. OZOTOP tokens are available to buy in the OZOTOP / Bitcoin pair at Waves DEX. With bank cards or any available in Waves DEX, another deposit method.

Early fundraising and investor protection Smart asset scripts will include an automatic fixed price increase from 0.000003 BTC in presale in Waves DEX to 0.00003 BTC in STO (KYC / AML). The exchange of OZOTOP tokens in the TOP exchanges will be available after the end of the STO stage. You can audit the smart asset scripting code of OZOTOP tokens on Github.

Why should the OZO token be purchased? One of the smart asset scripts of the OZOTOP (smart contract) project will help us freeze 51% of the OZO tokens for three years. 17% of tokens may circulate for 4th, 5th and 6th years.

All OZO token development smart contracts are connected The main smart asset script will collect all the previous conditions of smart asset scripts in an OZOTOP project token

OZO Advantages

The token provides mobility!

There are 3 stages of project tokens:

1. Utility OZOTOP tokens based on Waves DEX for Pre-Sale fundraising to create MVP and STO organizing

2. Exchanging utility OZOTOP tokens to security OZO tokens during STO stage preparing

3. Creating TON-based OZO tokens

Effect of social closeness (Telegram is a messenger after all)!

The most community-oriented and self-sufficient blockchain (TON) instant payments within society through the use of OZO tokens

These tokens will quickly become the Gram cryptocurrency. These are useful files for the community.
The more useful it is for this ecosystem, and in this society, more people will transfer OZO.

Each expert will have their proficiency rating. As soon as customers get their service/product, they will leave their comments and brands.

Once during the accounting period, for example, for three months, 5% of all company experts with the lowest qualifications for their services will be prohibited from providing services in this company.

Other experts may work in their place. All newcomers will participate in the random draw made by the robot.

Three negative comments will cause the expert to cease his services in society. It can be replaced by someone else.

All members of society will consider situations of dispute (arbitration). They will vote for the match they deem correct. In turn, the parties may prove that they are right in presenting evidence or using other means of defence.

Conclusion

This may be the opportunity to create a self-regulated society, which, with the help of Blockchain technology, can be a reality.

In turn, the OZOTOP project token has the potential to become an alternative form of money in a more decent and efficient society.

This is the most creative offer we can imagine today, where the feeling of social proximity and security of social interactions will provide an opportunity for society to be self-conscious and self-regulating, with the desire to increase and well-being in the collective consciousness.

HPB 2nd Phase of the MainNet Upgrade Underway

0
Reading Time: 2 minutes

The core dev team behind the High Performance Blockchain (HPB) will complete the second phase of the MainNet upgrade on June 10th. The process began on April 28th with the first phase ending on May 27th at the block height of 2560000.

What brings this upgrade?

When the upgrade is finished, the network is expected to have a higher transaction processing capacity, improved efficiency in the use of the specialized network hardware known as the Blockchain Offload Engine (BOE) and increased smart contract application compatibility.

High Performance Blockchain was started as a project of Shanghai Zhaoxi Network Co., Ltd, a Chinese blockchain startup founded in 2014. At the moment, the project is managed through the High Performance Blockchain foundation, a nonprofit entity.

The primary goal of HPB is to provide new and out of the box solutions to the scalability issues that many of the early blockchains have been dealing with.

What is the HPB answer?

The team behind the HPB project has thought that most blockchains are struggling to scale because they are using hardware that was never designed for blockchain use. As much as tinkering with the software can increase capacity, they think that option has a ceiling.

To solve the scalability issues as well meet other specific needs of the blockchain technology, the HPB team designed a hardware piece that can be integrated into the existing hardware system to increase capacity as well as meet the unique needs of the blockchain use. The Blockchain Offload Engine (BOE) hardware is shipped to all those who want to be part of the network that maintains the shared transaction ledger.

The BOE hardware, in addition to providing customized capabilities for the blockchain, also gives a second layer of security to the users of the network as the data it handles is always encrypted.

Another dApp launchpad

In terms of uses cases, the HPB network is similar to blockchain networks that provide decentralized launchpads for different kinds of applications, including smart contracts. The blockchain is in the same category with the likes of Ethereum, EOS and TRON.

It offers a blockchain framework on which developers can build and run all kinds of decentralized applications. With the ongoing MainNet upgrade, the framework is expected to be more useful and responsive to the needs of developers, enterprises and research entities.

During the MainNet upgrade, sending, receiving and withdrawal of the HPB native digital currency is suspended to avoid any mishaps as well as allow exchanges to match their systems with the new environment.

Zilliqa (ZIL) – Smart Contracts Launch & More

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Zilliqa blockchain platform will soon enable smart contracts which will help it to explode in value and attract big corporations to its blockchain network.

Zilliqa encouraging big corporations for token adoption

The Zilliqa (ZIL) cryptocurrency has recently been the talk-of-the-town due to its performance in the recent months and all the developments coming to its platform. This Monday, June 10th, Zilliqa will enable smart contracts to its platform thereby encouraging big corporations to join its platform thus boosting the ZIL token adoption.

Zilliqa’s Efficient Smart Contract Systems

Zilliqa is a public blockchain network that uses the ‘Sharding’ technology which simultaneously expands the transaction rates along with the network. The platform aims to provide an efficient and secure smart contract layer that enables security-by-design smart contract programming and verification.

The team is working on a specialized smart contract language called Scilla which offers better scalability of decentralized applications (DApps) for financial modelling, automated auctions, and shared economy.

With such features, the enabling of smart contracts will give a huge boost to the platform pushing the price of ZIL tokens northwards. During the recent Consensus 2019 meet, the platform developers managed to impress investors by showing a large number of solutions which the platform can deal with.

Important Partnerships

The platform has recently inked the deal with big advertising companies like Mindshare. Under the new Project Proton, The Zilliqa blockchain will work to handle issues of ad frauds and intermediaries which are troubling the advertisers.

They have also partnered with Hg Exchange to offer different financial services like asset-backed securities and Security Token Offerings (STOs) while providing a robust and secure blockchain infrastructure for the same.

Zilliqa is also working with Krypton to develop gaming SDKs for gaming studios as well as Non-Fungible Tokens templates. The Zilliqa network thus hopes to launch a number of blockchain-based games on its network, in the near future.

Possible Partnership With Facebook

On Wednesday, June 6th, a new report from The Information suggested that Facebook could possibly launch its stablecoin by the end of this month. This has further led to speculation that Facebook could be possibly working with Zilliqa and launch its stablecoin on the its blockchain network.

The reason behind the speculation is that Facebook is planning to launch its GlobalCoin on June 18th, which also happens to be the Zilliqa Day 2019. On the other hand, Facebook’s current head of blockchain Evan Cheng also happens to be an advisor to Zilliqa, which adds more weight to the speculation.
