Deep Aero – A Futuristic AI-Based Drone Economy on the Blockchain



Deep Aero

Deep Aero is looking to disrupt the global drone industry by introducing autonomous operations thanks to a combination of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and blockchain technology. The concept behind the project is informed by a real need in the urban space where transportation challenges abound in various forms.

While drones were initially limited to the military space, their use in other sectors has grown exponentially, first into leisure activities and later into cargo and passenger transportation. Thanks to their innovative design and features, they have introduced an entirely new dimension in every field of use, taking the Internet of Things to a whole new level.

On-Demand Passenger Drones

Urban mobility is greatly hampered by numerous factors ranging from the all-too-common traffic congestion and poor infrastructure among other issues. Consequently, minutes stretch into hours on the daily commute, robbing commuters of their precious time and causing inefficiencies in every aspect of life.

The main advantage that drones introduce is that they have the capacity to take off and land vertically. Even in congested cities, this capability makes them adept at offering reliable and fast transportation no matter where a commuter happens to be.

Such drones also come in handy in cases of emergency, helping in search and rescue missions and even carrying out evacuations from otherwise inaccessible places.

Cargo Drones

Using unmanned cargo drones for the delivery of commercial packages offers lots of distinct advantages. First, it eliminates the challenges that normally cause unnecessary delays in package delivery. Drones are not subject to the constraints of traffic snarl-ups or infrastructural limitations. They can traverse even the most challenging terrains, covering both land and water without any hindrance.

Accordingly, they offer one of the fastest delivery options for urgent packages like medical or relief supplies as well as time-bound commercial packages. Factoring in all the benefits of this form of cargo delivery could, in fact, lead to a significant cost reduction when compared to conventional methods, especially in places with a challenging terrain.

Harmonized Air-Traffic Management Framework

However, the current aviation infrastructure is not yet suited to handle their extensive use because, in spite of their having collision-avoidance capabilities, drones are not inherently designed for heavy air traffic areas. It is, in fact, becoming increasingly urgent to find a way to get drones and regular manned aircraft to coexist without incident. At the same time, the absence of a pilot to control drones raises challenges with regards to detecting and avoiding obstacles in their path such as other aircraft. Handling unforeseen dangers like weather changes is also an issue.

Current management frameworks mainly rely on voice communication between pilots and air-control stations as well as on radar detection.  Only larger, more expensive drones have the capacity to handle such communication. Additionally, even if there could be some form of communication established, the current frameworks cannot handle the density of air traffic anticipated in the next few years as drones become commonplace. For this reason, Deep Aero is set to create a self-governing framework for managing both manned and unmanned aircraft harmoniously.

The Deep Aero Unmanned Aircraft System Traffic Management (UTM) platform is a system driven by blockchain and AI technologies, offering autonomous air traffic management for all types of aircraft. Using this framework, both manned and unmanned aircraft will enjoy safe flights without the risk of crossing paths and causing harm to their passengers or cargo.

Incorporating data from manned air traffic control systems and global airspace data, Deep Aero UTM will combine this with other supplemental information about the weather, terrain, and obstacles in the path of drones to eliminate accidental collisions. Moreover, UTM will make it possible for drones to communicate with each other giving information about their immediate surroundings

And the best part about it is that the system will not require continuous monitoring by human operators. They would only intervene when there is a need for strategic decisions.

Details of the Ongoing ICO

In order to facilitate the execution of the project, Deep Aero is currently carrying out an Initial Coin Offering that is selling its native DRONE token. Out of a total of 5 billion tokens, 50% which is 2.5 billion is available for purchase during the ICO that started on May 1st, 2018 and is slated to run till June 1st, 2018. After the ICO period, any remaining tokens will be sold until a future expiry date that is yet to be specified.

More details on this futuristic project and its ongoing ICO are accessible on the platform’s official website.

Crypto Venture UpStake is Redefining the Industry with a Proof-of-Burn Stable Coin




UpStake, an exciting cryptocurrency project officially launched last year, is all set to take the global crypto community by storm. Unlike hundreds of crypto ventures that fail to make any impression, UpStake is dedicated to delivering a stable digital currency that will pave the way for mass adoption around the world.

London, UK – Jan 16, 2019

London-based crypto startup UpStake is well on its way to revolutionising the global cryptocurrency industry by eliminating many of the limitations that have stifled growth for years. Launched in 2018, this promising initiative is focused on ensuring mass adoption of cryptocurrency by providing a usable, stable form of digital currency to the crypto and blockchain communities across the globe.

This proposed blockchain ecosystem is built around UpStake tokens (UPS), the platform’s proprietary token. UpStake asserts that these tokens have been designed to increase in value over time, and set the stage to build great products and services which result in better user experiences.

In order to ensure continuous increase in value of UPS over time, UpStake has built a Proof-of-Burn model that burns a certain percentage of tokens sold through their exchange.  This model helps create the value that contributes to the ever-growing price point of the token. It not only enables the token price to…

How Online Casinos Can Adapt to the Growth of Cryptocurrency



online casinos

The growth of cryptocurrency is difficult to ignore and industries are having to adapt in order to facilitate all of the people who want to buy goods and services with crypto coins. Multiple coins are on the rise, helping cryptocurrency’s star rise. Bitcoin’s price is back above $4,000 and it is joined by other coins like Ethereum, which makes use of the Ether blockchain.

But accepting cryptocurrency – or appealing to crypto users – isn’t as easy as just tailoring your marketing strategy. Other steps need to be taken and we’ve detailed a handful of these below.

Increased Safety and Security Measures

Online casinos are already very good at ensuring that customers and their data (including personal information and payment details) are kept secure. Some of the existing online safety measures employed by online casinos include HTTPS and SSL, which means that any information passed between you and the online casino will be encrypted and difficult for malicious agents to gain access to. Leading casinos are also certified by…
