Taraxa

Democratizing IoT data with infinitely-scalable concurrent contracts, trustless light nodes, and encrypted data markets on top of block lattice.
Distributed ledger technologies (DLT) can address many of IoT's challenges, making them perfectly complementary. The bad news is, current DLT's foundation is weakened by numerous flaws, making it poorly-suited for large-scale IoT applications, which is why we built Taraxa.

Inspired by the principles of software transactional memory (STM), Taraxa achieves node-level concurrency by speculative parallelization of smart contract calls, with conflict minimization achieved from built-in concurrent data structures.
Each contract call is initially ordered by sets by the contract creator or its delegate, then randomly assigned to a full-node initial processor weighted by historical reputation. The assigned node acknowledges, processes, broadcasts the results which are validated by the rest of the network.
IoT devices are constrained by their processing, memory, and bandwidth limitations. Instead of making them blind puppets of full nodes, Taraxa has created the first practical trustless light node to make devices fully independent and autonomous in their trading decisions.

Shipit
Shipit — is a community of senders and travelers united by the mobile app that helps the former ship packages and the latter make extra money while traveling. Shipit is a symbiosis of best ideas and practices of courier, crowdsource and crowdshipping services. We have synthesized the best business practices to create a revolutionary and unique service. Just as Uber and BlaBlaCar have already become a part of our daily lives, Shipit is going to become an irreplaceable tool for shipping. It is the first app of its kind that will use smart contracts and blockchain as a native tool to make people lives easier all around the world. By implementing Shipit tokens and using the blockchain we want to build relationships between users based on transparency, safety and ease of tracking for all deliveries on the platform. While courier services are becoming more expensive, Shipit allows users to ship and track open packages at lower costs and risks. Shipping has never been easier.

DINO
In blockchain world, there is a huge knowledge gulf between non-computer professionals from different industries and smart contract development. The DINO Platform aims to address this problem with its proprietary technology, a cloud-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) smart contract Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Leveraging the technology of the DINO Platform, users can build their smart contracts with visualised logic flows. More than just a smart contract IDE, the DINO Platform is intended to build a smart contract ecosystem together with developers all over the world. In the smart contract market, developers may build and design smart contract templates and sell them to the general public.
