A coalition of news organizations and journalists in various parts of the world have banded together to create a cryptocurrency to sustain funding for investigative journalism. Called PressCoin, the digital currency was made to get rid of the advertising revenue model, decentralize funding sources, and upend corporate media monopolies with collaborative content that strengthens civic participation around the world. The Ethereum-based currency will be distributed to the wallets of both readers and journalists based on the level of engagement they are able to create, as measured using the Quintype content management system. Readers will receive PressCoin for generating insights from thoughtful conversation. Compensation levels for readers and journalists will be based on reputation documented and recorded in the blockchain. PressCoin publications will not allow readers to engage in comments or interact with anonymous accounts. Like De Correspondent, PressCoin will allow limited access to read its content, but to read full stories, interact with journalists, or comment on stories, users will have to pay for a subscription or make micropayments for individual stories. After the token sale, people will be able to subscribe or join the PressCoin system using fiat currency, credit cards, or online payment systems

BlockStorage
BlockStorage is a protocol built to connect and abstract all communications with the blockchain, simplifying the user’s life. The current state of cloud storage, with dozens of reports of security issues, the overall perception of lack of privacy, along with the usual high monthly fees calls for a new kind of storage service, one that guarantees data privacy at lower (or no) costs. From those concerns, we envisioned BlockStorage, a storage protocol based on the principles of ease of use and privacy. Built with the casual user in mind, it allows anyone to store and recover any type of file on any existing blockchain, without cost (besides the transaction fee to store the file). BlockStorage leverages blockchain technology to ensure the safest and most transparent storage experience. Our protocol allows users to seamlessly upload files to the blockchain of their choice while taking care of the data encryption and the respective blockchain protocol. And, because of the inherent nature of blockchains, it assures that the data will never be lost. In short, it will store the files for life without any recurring costs.

Constellation
The Constellation protocol implements a horizontally scalable blockchain architecture known as Extended Trust Chain with a peer to peer layer known as a gossip protocol that can be deployed on a mobile device. Constellation approaches smart contracts with a microservice architecture allowing for highly available services to be chained and composed into distributed applications with just an understanding of each microservice’s SLA (service level agreement) and/or type signature. This architecture ensures high transaction throughput, allowing for consumer grade distributed applications to be built on Constellation.
