The ICO market is a funny old place. Something I have learned over my time analyzing the blockchain and the ICO market is that the truly outstanding projects rarely get the limelight they deserve. One really has to dig to discover the real standout projects. There are hundreds of ICO’s listed in the various ICO calendars on the web, it really is the wild west out there. All of them fighting for the attention of investors, ushering them into their crowdsale and to become an advocate for their community. The best projects on the market don’t seem to try as hard, because frankly, they don’t have to. They are aware that the serious investors who do their research, always find the great projects and will happily tell the world about them. We are now arriving at the periphery of global mainstream blockchain adoption, here are the four pivotal projects who are aspiring to change the game for pervasive blockchain use.
It can become easy to forget about the key fundamentals of our world, especially when there’s a regular abundance of shiny new technology for us to play with. The marvels of science and the vital role it plays in our day to day lives is wondrous when you sit back and think about what we have discovered, all thanks to extraordinary minds putting in extensive research. Look at the discovery of Electromagnetic waves for example, which are propagating from your device right now at a speed of 300 million meters per second. Currently bouncing back and forth via satellites to give us super fast internet connection and allowing us to browse the web. Scientific research must be a continuous process in order to solidify our knowledge, give us a deeper understanding of life and allow the human race to evolve.
Orvium is on a quest to build a fully open source, collaborative ecosystem to improve current inefficiencies which are impeding the growth of scientific evolution. Scientific publications are currently held in silos at a price of between $3000 – $5000 per publication. As well as the extensive cost of research, researchers also have to worry about whether their work will be effectively credited to them. We currently don’t have a guaranteed standard for putting fixed ownership on scientific research and discovery. Orvium is integrated blockchain technology and building an infrastructure which provides irrefutable ownership of work at a fraction of the current cost.

2. Media Protocol
Whilst we try to sit back and ponder the inner workings of everyday life, it’s hard to deny that most of our time is used to check out cool content online. The direct access which we have to valuable information establishes us as the generation with the greatest advantage when it comes to knowledge. A world of discovery, literally at our fingertips. Most content creators are motivated by the sheer thrill of telling a story with their content and to pass on valuable knowledge to someone who requires it. This usually comes with very little financial reward for doing so.
Media Protocol is a multi-lateral architecture which allows publishers, creators and content consumers to freely exchange content, data, and incentives. Users are directly rewarded for browsing the Internet and looking at any content, whether it would be a Facebook post, a news article or a Youtube video. When this interaction occurs, the user and the content creator are rewarded with Media tokens, which is the native Cryptocurrency inside the Media Protocol ecosystem. The publication which displays the content then receives transparent data for the performance of the content, whilst removing large distribution fees which are usually paid to media agencies and content distribution platforms.

Imagine the prospect of two of the most lucrative markets merging together, complimenting each other perfectly to produce an efficient revenue generating machine. The thought of the behemoth which is the Esports industry adopting the blockchain and using it for transactions throughout their ecosystem really is a mouth-watering prospect. The Gaming industry and the blockchain were born to be together. Rewarding the outcome of battles held within virtual worlds with Cryptocurrency, the new age digital currency. The only problem the Esports industry faces, however, is a lack of new talent coming through to support the rapid growth potential the industry can attain. Many talented players cannot push to achieve their full potential because let’s face it, it’s not a 100% guaranteed source of income. Players are taking a huge risk by giving up regular employment for the chance to earn a living by playing video games competitively.
Yumerium is building a decentralized gaming hub which facilitates a wonderful ecosystem for their gamers. To be rewarded financially for having fun, playing the games they love to play. On the opposite side of the fence, game developers who construct their game on the Yumerium platform have an extensive array of marketing options at their disposal. The Yumerium platform is creating a social dynamic which comes with a financial reward, the Yum token. Developers can offer rewards for specific challenges they wish to create, which could be promotional videos, sharing social links and leaving reviews on specific content.

Over the last 5 years, we have seen a dramatic incline in global demand for a wide range of commodities. Cryptocurrency mining equipment immediately springs to mind! The increase in demand is obviously welcome with open arms by businesses and the world economy alike, however, the capacity to fulfill the demand is currently at breaking point. The shipping industry is struggling to process the influx of goods which has created a downfall in organizational capability and inherent problems by filling over capacity.
Blockshipping is creating a decentralized global platform where all key figures in the container shipping industry such as carriers, ports, terminals, and transport networks are all singing from the same structured hymesheet. A blockchain enabled registry for 27 million units and the exact location for every single item, around the globe. Allowing real-time tracking and item visibility through IOT (Internet Of Things) technology. The blockchain provides a much needed automated payment structure for the shipping industry by enabling smart contracts to automate processes and payments between parties.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
