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.

1. Orvium

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.

Orvium have scheduled an ICO for the ORV token

When – The ICO will begin on March 1st, 2018 and is scheduled to end March 29th, 2018

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.

3. Yumerium

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.

Yumerium have scheduled an ICO for the YUM token

When – The Public pre-sale will begin on May 24th, 2018 and is scheduled to end July 10th, 2018. The ICO begins on July 11th and is scheduled to finish July 24th, 2018.

Token – YUM

Price – 1 YUM = $0.10

Supply – A total supply of 632,613,700 tokens will be created, with a maximum number of 316,306,850 (50%) tokens to be sold

Platform – Ethereum

Accepting – ETH, BTC

Hardcap – $31.61 million USD

4. Blockshipping

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.

Blockshipping have scheduled their ICO for the CCC token

When – The ICO will begin on May 14th, 2018 and is scheduled to end on July 14th, 2018

Token – CCC

Price – 1 CCC = $0.62

Supply – A total supply of 50 million tokens will be created, with a maximum number of 42.5 million (85%) tokens to be sold

Platform – Ethereum

Accepting – ETH

Hardcap – $24.8 million USD

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

KaratGold Background

KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks. During the past few weeks, however, the KaratGold ecosystem has been a target of unsavory scam allegations.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
