Holo (HOT) [ICO Profile]

Holochain is a framework for the building of dApps (decentralized applications). It is not a blockchain, but rather a DHT (Distributed Hash Table) in which every user has their own chain and all transactions are published to the DHT. Holochain supports Javascript and Lisp.

Holochain is a project being built to create a decentralized, distributed internet.

Holo is a peer-to-peer app hosting marketplace built on top of Holochain consisting of hosts and users of distributed computing. In return for hosting dApps hosts and users receive payment in the form of Holo fuel.

Holo fuel is used to pay hosts for data storage and processing.

Possible use cases for Holo:

  • Social Networks, Social Media & VRM
  • Supply Chains & Open Value Networks
  • Cooperatives and New Commons
  • P2P Platforms
  • Collective Intelligence
  • Collaborative Applications
  • Reputational, or Mutual Credit Cryptocurrencies

NuCypher Logo

NuCypher (NKMS) [ICO / Presale Profile]

NuCypher is a data privacy layer for blockchain and decentralized applications (dApps). Through proxy re-encryption it enables dApp developers and enterprises to secure data. Proxy re-encryption is a type of public-key encryption whereby a proxy entity transforms ciphertexts from one public key to another without knowing anything about the underlying message.

The company believes its key management system (KMS) will be a key element to secure dApps in the same way that SSL/TLS is a part of secure web applications.

Use Case Example:

A project building a dApp in the medical industry is using IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) to store a patient’s medical records. NuCypher’s technology provides a way for these records to still be private, confidential, and encrypted but still sharable with appropriate parties such as with the patient’s doctor or hospitable.

Whitelist:  According to the NuCypher chat as of April 21, 2018, NuCypher has not officially begun whitelisting.  The company will utilize Coinlist’s ComplyAPI for KYC.

Being in the Telegram channel or mailing list (although this does not guarantee a whitelist) . A time stamp on everyone’s entry will determine their spot in addition to commitment to operate a node.

  1. Additional details will be announced after the testnet is live.

Platform: ERC-20. NuCypher is a layer that sits on top of Ethereum but it is its own separate network.


NuCypher has announced partnerships with Origin, Medibloc, Datum, Iryo, Wolk


Potential use cases listed in NuCypher’s primer include:

  • Sharing encrypted files (“Decentralized Dropbox”)
  • End-to-end encrypted group chat (“Encrypted Slack”)
  • Patient-controlled electronic health records (EHR)
  • Decentralized digital rights management (DDRM)
  • Blind identity management
  • Secret credentials management for scripts and backend apps
  • Shared credentials and enterprise password management
  • Mandatory access logging
  • Mobile device management (MDM) and revocation

Re-encryption Nodes

The re-encryption nodes in the network will require NuCuypher tokens to be staked. If a node is misbehaving, it can be challenged and have its stake forfeited.

DAOStack Logo

DAOStack (GEN) [ICO / Presale Profile]

DAOStack is an operating system/platform for the decentralized governance of large entities. The project provides a framework for DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations). It has been described as the WordPress for DAOs for or the toolkit for exponential organizations.

DAOs are an alternative to traditional top-down organizations. Instead of centralized leadership and a few points of potential failure, a DAO utilizes blockchain technology and smart contracts to create a self-governing entity.

DAOStack is a project which aims to help the self-management of DAOs.

We spoke with Erik Rodrigues (Community Management & Research) from the DAOStack team via Telegram to receive answers to our questions.

Can you provide an example use case for DAOStack? Are there any particular industries or types of DAOs that you believe would most benefit from DAOStack?

In the broadest sense, DAOstack is useful any time there is a need to coordinate a large group of people to make decisions collectively. So, by thinking about a few different types of decisions a group might need to make, we can imagine several categories of use cases.

1. Collaboration to Produce an Outcome (“Work”)
In cases in which the goal is to develop or deliver products and services — roughly speaking, a decentralized “company” — the decisions that need to be made often concern how to value individual contributions, and how to budget for projects and other purchases. Which projects should be funded? How much should James be paid for that article, or Sally for that software upgrade? What will be the process for verifying and evaluating work? Should the organization invest in this or that office space, legal support, or PR firm?

Examples include the following:

A film project of 1,000 artists
An open-source software project of 10,000 developers
A climate initiative of 50,000 scientists
A collaborative news network of 100,000 journalists
Soon these kinds of organizations will be able to use Alchemy to collectively distribute token and reputation, find collaborators, and offer bounties to professionals. Or they could build a custom Dapp on the stack if that would better suit their needs.

2. Asset Management
These types of collectives make decisions primarily about the management of assets and the allocation of funds. Should we invest in this company, or that property? Should we pay out this claim? Should we sell that asset?

Examples include decentralized versions of the following:

Venture funds
Insurance networks
Charitable funds
Pension funds
Real estate investment collectives

3. Curation
Curation networks leverage the wisdom of the crowd to rank the subjective quality of objects. What content should be featured in the feed, or the newsletter? How trustworthy is this company? How good is the food at that diner?

Examples include decentralized versions of the following:

Restaurant or hotel guides, similar to Yelp or TripAdvisor
Article or video feeds, akin to social news feeds or Reddit
Website listings, like a socially curated Google search

4. All of the Above
In practice, many DAOs will include decision-making in more than one category. An open-source software project, in addition to rewarding its contributors (case 1), might collectively curate which code will be included in each release, or featured in its newsletter (3). Conversely, a social network, in addition to curating content (3), has a business to run and must pay its developers, marketers, legal personnel, and so on (1). And either organization might want to invest the proceeds from its activities into other ventures (2).

Can you discuss the main use cases of the GEN token?

GEN serves as the attention token within the DAOstack ecosystem. With GEN, you cannot buy voting power, nor can you vote with it, but you can place a stake for or against a proposal that influences whether or not it rises into the collective attention of the voters, the reputation-holders. If you stake for proposals that the reputation-holders then pass, you’re rewarded with more GEN. If you stake for a proposal that then fails, you lose your GEN. And vice versa if you stake against proposals.

GEN will likely have other utility on the platform too, related to The Archives, for example. Also, GEN will be the primary currency for the buildout of the DAOstack ecosystem itself, with contributors to the platform rewarded in GEN, and even investments into projects that are built on the stack tendered in GEN — according to the collective will of the Genesis DAO.

How do you envision on DAOstack growing and getting companies to utilize it?

The platform is designed to underpin an entire ecosystem of decentralized organizations — a community of interoperable DAOs, able to share talent, ideas, and learnings with one another. DAOs will even be able to act as members of other DAOs, creating a fluid “DAO mesh” or “internet of work” in which collectives of collectives are commonplace, and in which any given individual might participate in dozens of different collectives.

Large corporations would implement the DAOstack’s scalable decision-making features to reduce the cost of management.

Any estimate as to when you’ll release a roadmap?

nOS logo

nOS [ICO / Presale Profile] (NEO Project)

nOS is a virtual operating system for the decentralized internet powered by NEO. On this decentralized internet, the project aims to have transparent apps where users data is safe.

The project was announced at the NEO ❤️ Amsterdam Event on April 14, 2018.


Symbol: NOS
Token Sale: Early Q3 2018
Minimum Financing:  TBA
Hard Cap: TBA
Token Supply:  TBA
Whitelist:  TBA, but it has been announced that developers contributing to or building upon nOS will receive priority.

Platform: Tokens are NEP-5 and will run on the NEO blockchain


  • Open Back-ends: dApps feature transparent back-end code
  • GAS as a Utility Token: The main end user token will be GAS as nOS will convert the GAS to work with the various dApp tokens.
  • Universal Smart Contract
    • Single smart contract hosted on NEO
    • Contains popular functions, logic, storage functions
    • Can be called on by any nOS and NEO application
    • Integrated with nOS client
  • Decentralized Authority (see Token Utilities below)


Token utilities according to founder Dean van Dugteren can be broken down into:

1.  Application Hosting:  Developers on projects can stake tokens to register domains, get hosted, listed, rated.

2.  Decentralized Authority:  End users can stake tokens to gain authority, vote on applications, get rewarded for truthful voting through airdrops

Additionally, applications can earn via reputation. In turn high reputation will then lead to higher discoverability in the app store and users also are protected from low reputation applications.


MVP Client is now available on GitHub and developers can build apps on their own NEO Privatenet.

Moonlight (smart economy workforce project on NEO) announced a technical partnership with nOS on April 14, 2018:

The community has grown very quickly as evidenced by reaching 10,000 Telegram members and 20,000 newsletter subscribers in several days.

Suppoman discussed Quarkchain in his video “What 3 New Cryptos Could Explode in Bull Market.” He closed his evaluation of it by stating, “I do imagine this is going to be amongst the best blockchains. I missed out on Zilliqa’s ICO and I don’t want to miss out on Quarkchain when this comes out.”

CryptoBriefing rated Quarkchain a 82% (rated as a Top 5% projects). “Quarkchain offers a taste of scaling. We like the flavor.”

Andre Cronje’s code review for CryptoBriefing states, “I think their implementation is novel, well executed, and I am definitely going to be playing around a lot more in their testnet. It annoys me that I haven’t been able to break it yet.”

How did the idea for Bounty0x come about? 
The idea for Bounty0x started at a Github proposal when I was working for district0x https://github.com/district0x/district-proposals/issues/1

Why did Bounty0x decide to issue a token and utilize blockchain for the project? 
Tokens are needed in order to verify that bounty hunter submissions are submitted and are accurate.

Why did Bounty0x decide to have a $250K pre-sale cap and $1.5 million main sale cap?
This is what the community voted on, we let them decide.

What is Bounty0x’s strategy for obtaining new customers? 
We have strategic partnerships with a number of people involved in the crypto space who refer partners to us, we also receive them through word of mouth.
