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.

Cudos
The Global Compute Network - Powering Smart Contracts, DeFi and the Internet. Buy, stake, earn & use CUDOS. CUDOS is a layer 2 oracle network, governed by smart contracts, connecting blockchain developers and services including DeFi, to a global footprint of computing power on the Cudo platform. Cudo is a distributed computing platform already providing customers around the World with up to 10x more cost-effective computing, whilst also providing more equity for hardware owners. The CUDOS network provides a layer 2 to various blockchains, in order to solve current scalability issues. The CUDOS network comprises a set of smart contracts that act as compute oracles, connecting blockchains to secure external sources in a decentralised way. By allowing smart contracts to request off-chain computation, CUDOS offers a Turing-complete solution which can run code in any language, such as Python, Go or C++.

Omphalos
Omphalos is an adaptive base cryptocurrency with scalable chain interoperability. OMPL will connect to Polkadot network for cross-chain interoperability, enabling OMPL asset and data to move between multiple blockchains. OMPL is a community led and operated project, everyone has power to govern and vote on proposals for future development. OMPL has an anti-inflation mechanism for maintaining a stable purchasing power of equivalent to $1 USDT. OMPL protocol adapts an elastic supply model and automatically adjusts supply with rebasing. Price goes up, wallet balances increase; when price goes down, balances decrease. OMPL enables self-executing smart contract and automatic distribution based on price data from decentralized CPI Oracle. OMPL holders own a part of the network, and their percentage of ownership will remain fixed with non-dilutive supply model.
Upcoming
Ideaology
Ideaology is a Swiss-based startup. It is an open-source project on Ethereum which will harness the amazing potential of blockchain technology to create an enormous platform with a diverse community of people and enterprises cooperating to develop great ideas and solutions into successful businesses. Connecting project owners, industry professionals, freelancers, and investors on the same platform Ideaology will allow all of you to develop their project efficiently, but also help to cooperate or partner up with other projects on the platform, and receive special funding and guidance from the Ideaology team.

Adrealm
Adrealm aims to rebuild the digital advertising ecosystem and cultivate a self-sustaining open ecosystem for all participants to achieve advertising efficiency. Built on ERC-20 standard of the Ethereum platform, Adrealm connects advertisers, service providers, content publishers, developers etc on its decentralized public ledger ensuring privacy and no third-party management of data. Thanks to its three-tier architecture made of an on-chain layer, off-chain layer, and a service layer, speed and efficiency can be guaranteed and the industry pain-points such as fraud, low-quality ads, and data leakage can be overcome. Adrealm relies on a particular consensus mechanism called Proof of Valid Traffic (PoVT) that makes high-quality ads and traffic the fundamental criteria for the operational success of transactions.
Upcoming
Shercoin
The SherCoin team has realized that the best way to create a good cryptocurrency that will achieve mass adoption is by creating a multi-functional token that has more than one utility. Most of the altcoins are Ethereum-based coins that only offer one application. SherCoin features five different related applications in one. The ecosystem has a theme: User provide valuable economic services for businesses such: as checking market place for counterfeits, reporting fake or suspicious products; filling out surveys and giving information, feedback, and data, so business can make informed decisions; giving the users an easy way to manage the cryptos the earned; and then giving them outlets to spend/exchange their tokens.
Upcoming
Dailycoin
DailyCoin has built a decentralized eCommerce platform, on the Ethereum Blockchain, and payment solution system. The aim is to provide that financial payment solution with little or no hassle, with next to nothing or no transaction fee, allowing people to buy or pay for those services they are used to on their platforms or merchant sites. The goal is to make everyone’s daily experience an easy one while buying those tickets, paying for shopping items or even making hotel reservations.
