Idena Client Source Code: https://github.com/idena-network/idena-desktop/releases

Idena Node Source Code: https://github.com/idena-network/idena-go/releases


NOTE : WHEN PARTICIPATING PLEASE RUN BOTH THE NODE SOFTWARE FIRST TO ALLOW BLOCKCHAIN SYNCHRONIZATION

AND THEN RUN THE DESKTOP CLIENT TO ALLOW FOR A GUI EXPERIENCE.







Idena is a novel way to create anonymous identity on the blockchain. It does not collect or store personally identifiable information. Idena proves the humanness and uniqueness of its participants by running an AI-hard Turing test at the same time for everyone around the globe.

The Idena blockchain is driven by proof-of-identity consensus: Every node is linked to one single person with equal voting power.







Anonymous unique identity

We believe that a digital identity is the building block of the decentralized future. Such an identity can be constructed to be anonymous, self-managed, and valid globally, no matter where the person lives. No trusted authorities are needed to achieve this. All we need to know about the identity is that there is a single living person to whom that identity belongs. We call it Idena.


One person - one vote

A peer-to-peer web without servers and censors would empower people, not wealth or authority, and give them control over sharing information and value. No personal data should be required to access a service, send a message, or buy a coffee in a decentralized world.


Universal basic income

Blockchain mining must be democratic: The blockchain node should be light enough to run on an average computer or laptop. In Idena all participants are empowered to maintain the network. Participation in Idena is rewarded in a form of a UBI.


Freedom of speech

Every voice has a right to be heard. Spreading information should be seamless, and publications should be censorship-resistant.


Scalability, decentralization, security

We believe that a scalable blockchain can be built without compromising its safety. The basis for genuine scalability and safety is a transparent and redundant decentralization.







We are an anonymous group of like-minded engineers and computer scientists who stand for the human right to share information and exchange value freely and privately.

We believe that there is a way to redesign the way software systems in general and blockchains in particular work to achieve greater decentralization and scalability.

Introducing SunChain
by Solar Bankers Singapore

The First Decentralized Electricity Network based on Solar Energy and Blockchain

Built on the Skyledger Blockchain




Website

Discord | Telegram | Slack | Facebook | Twitter | Github




What is SunChain?

Find out more on our site: http://solarbankers.com/

SunChain is a first-of-its-kind global decentralized energy network which allows consumers to generate clean energy in their homes using Solar Bankers’ photovoltaic technologies and trade electricity profitably with their neighbors. Members of the SunChain install SolarBankers’ energy-generating equipment to produce electricity, which they can either use of their daily life, store, or sell to their neighbors through smartmicro-grids. This system allows homeowners to reduce the cost of electricity and enables each and every user to profit from solar energy.
 






   
   
   
   
   
Decentralized Power Generation
   
No Middle Man
   
Low Distribution Cost
   
    The Solar Bankers SunChain system allows everyone to produce and sell electricity. The price is set by the market and changes according to supply and demand.    Producers and consumers, who are normally serviced by a utility company, subscribe to smart contracts, which are blockchain-based agreements that help exchange value in a transparent and conflict-free way without the need of intermediaries.    Electricity is generated on-site and distributed among the members of the community with short-range cables, which dramatically reduces the cost of transportation.   
                           
   
   
   
   
   
Secure & Transparent
   
0 Greenhouse Emissions
   
The Next Generation of Solar Technology
   
    Grid transactions are secure and transparent on the Skyledger blockchain.    Electricity is generated using PV technologies which do not emit Greenhouse gases and make our planet greener and less polluted.    Producers can generate electricity using Solar Bankers patented technology, which makes solar energy cheaper and more efficient.   



 

About Solar Bankers Energy Generating Devices

Find out more on our site: http://solarbankers.com/technology/

Solar Bankers developed and patented the next generation of solar devices. Solar Bankers’ technology uses a high-tech holographic nanostructured film that manages the light in a smart and innovative way to efficiently convert sunlight.







 
   
   
   
   
   
Solar Panel
   
Solar Concentrator
   
Solar Window
   
    Solar Bankers’ Holographic Module, also referred to as Deflecting Photovoltaic (DPV), is a solar panel designed for high temperature environments that enables higher performance at a lower cost when compared with standard solar modules.     Solar Bankers’ Concentrator is intended for use in combination with standard modules to improve their efficiency and achieve greater energy output. The Concentrating Film, referred to by the name ‘Umbrella’, applies the efficiency-maximising technology used in the Holographic Solar Module to existing installations.     Solar Bankers’ Window is a fully transparent window that generates electricity out of sunlight. Solar Bankers’ nano-structured film covers the surface of the window, re-directing a part of the incoming light onto solar cells integrated in the window’s frame for electricity production.   
                           
   
   
   
   
   
Solar Tile
   
Self-Cleaning & Insulating Film
   
Light Recycling Module
   
    Solar Bankers Tile is a building component that generates electricity out of sunlight. Similar to our solar module, it consists of a 3-cm thick aluminum box that integrates Solar Bankers’ holographic film and silicon stripes. The tile is mounted on rotating tubes, which follow the apparent motion of the sun to generate electricity throughout the whole day. Solar Bankers tiles can be installed both in vertical and horizontal configurations.    Solar Bankers’ Self-Cleaning and Insulating Film is a fully transparent nano-structured coating that reflects the heat contained in the incoming light and keeps surfaces clean. The film is made of two layers stacked upon each other: the bottom is an optical filter, which reflects the heat-carrying portion of the light, while the top is a highly hydrophobic surface, which substantially reduces water and dust accumulation.    Solar Bankers’ Light Recycling Module recycles artificial light and converts it back into electricity, enabling savings of up to 15% on your electricity bill. The device uses Solar Bankers’ holographic film to redirect a part of the light emitted by fluorescent lamps back onto solar cell mounted under the light source to generate additional electricity.

About SunCoin



 
Solar Bankers’ SunCoin is based on a technology which introduces a new cryptographic primitive known as public broadcast channel. It also introduces a new consensus algorithm implementation, called Obelisk, which mitigates the commitment problems arising from the Proof-of-Work and mining processes underlying Bitcoin, thus addressing a host of security issues associated with the latter. Obelisk is not a single algorithm, but an implementation employing multiple techniques to deliver specific security guarantees. SunCoin represents a far more efficient and secure alternative to existing digital currencies because it is based on a new generation of blockchain technology that involves ultra-fast transactions with no fees and a multi-layered security structure.
 
SunCoin is not commodity-backed in the straightforward sense: it represents the ability to participate in a global network of free energy production and exchange. More specifically, SunCoin derives its value from the way in which its provides access to a number of entrepreneurial opportunities that go beyond the mere liquidity benefits of a standard cryptocurrency or the single commodity backing of other coins. SunCoin owners can:
 
  • trade SunCoin for other cryptocurrencies or fiat currency;
  • buy cheaper and cleaner electricity from other members in the decentralized network;
  • purchase Solar Bankers’ energy-generating equipment to produce energy for private consumption or sale on the local marketplace;
  • trade SunCoin for CO2 Emission Certificates.

These entrepreneurial opportunities are in turn facilitated and secured by a solid and mature company, which is backed by a set of strong soft assets – in the form of a game-changing international patent – and a host of ongoing partnerships and projects, cutting-edge product development, and market expertise. In the future the value of the company will also be backed by hard assets – in the form of manufacturing facilities and the decentralized electricity network.

18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] STABLE - Stabilizing Digital Tokens on: August 01, 2017, 10:49:49 PM




CROWDSALE DATE: 03rd of September until 01st October

The goal of the project’s team is to stabilize the token markets and, at the same time, ensure a relative stability of the STB token value over time.


The team expects to deliver the annual volatility (variability) of project’s net assets and therefore STB token price that is much lower (about 5-10 times lower) than that of other major digital tokens.

There are couple of types of inefficiencies manifesting themselves in digital token markets that STABLE project will attempt to close, such as: inter-exchange inefficiencies (premium/discount of the same token at various exchanges), temporal inefficiencies (various borrow/lending rates on different exchanges), liquidity based inefficiencies, excess volatility, etc.

Following the successful ICO, project team will deploy software to scan cryptocurrency markets for data such as: token, futures and CFD prices, swap/borrow levels, etc. It will screen for multiple opportunities among crypto exchanges on a real time basis. Signals that can be used by relatively simpler strategies will be fed to algorithmic APIs and executed automatically, while those used by more sophisticated ones will be passed on to the project team for “manual” execution.

Immediately following the successful crowdfunding phase, the project team will proceed with the setup of legal entities. Jurisdictions of stable democracies with strong rule of law will be preferred. Digital token exchanges will be approached to list the STB token in order to allow token exchangeability and provide a reliable day-to-day market price. Algorithmic APIs will be deployed. An accounting company that has sufficient experience with digital token accounting will be chosen. Finally an auditing company will be hired in order to ensure reliability of financial reports.

The STABLE project will NOT be a passive holder of digital tokens, we are NOT token-pickers. All of the trades will be executed based on the size of inefficiencies to be found. One of the primary goals of the STABLE project is the creation of a digital token, which is more stable in value than other popular tokens. If the goal is achieved by the project team, holders of the STB token will enjoy all the benefits of digital tokens such as speed of transacting, global transferability and anonymity, coupled with much lower volatility of prices across time. Additionally, if the economic benefits of executing stabilizing transactions exceed the costs of running the STABLE project, value of the STB token will rise over time, thus benefiting holders of the token.

In case of the STABLE  project there is NO „development fund” or „reserve fund”, etc. The project team will be compensated for their efforts solely by a fixed percentage fee of up to 2.5% annually plus a variable performance fee of up to 20% on the increase in STB token value. 100% of the ETH raised during the ICO will be exchanged for the STB tokens and will be used for stabilizing the token markets and various exchanges throughout the world.

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] SmartRE: Fractionalized & Insured Real Estate Platform on: July 22, 2017, 10:15:22 PM


_____________________________


_____________________________

Introduction:

I'd like to announce SmartRE, a real estate platform using the Ethereum blockchain, whereby US homeowners liquidate a percentage of their homes and investors worldwide buy in at as little as a dollar.  Investors are protected by customized insurance from Lloyd's of London.

Legal

Legally, how is this possible?  Will the system be classified as playing with security?  We have consulted and collaborated with a specialized real estate law firm in San Francisco to help craft the contracts that are between the buyers and the homeowners.  It is a rather complicated agreement but suffice it to say, it is not written in the form of a security and we have a good understanding under which category it would be classified.

Each property will have its own smart contract and ERC20 tokens and we use the contracts for escrow, transaction, and clearing-house purposes without any vested third-parties.  SmartRE tracks and records the transactions in its databases for insurance beneficiary purposes, along with the other usual functions.  We shield the technical details from the average users via our app but we also do not have access to their secret key, which will be used, with the user's permission, when there is dispute as to transaction provenance.  We want to make it as easy to invest as Robin Hood does for stock investment.
Why?

Why do this?  There is tremendous amount of capital locked up in US homeowners' properties.  And given that the average US household has over USD 100,000 in debt, according to the US Federal Reserve of New York, no other solution out there exists that can alleviate the situation.  There are home equity loans and reverse mortgages, but they are, in a sense, accumulation of more debt.  Targeting the San Francisco Bay Area first, which includes Silicon Valley, where the founders live, we understand the needs of this market.  While there are a lot of wealthy people there, a huge majority are still trying to make ends meet due to high housing costs and cost of living.  We can help with that.  The average home in the SF Bay Area (which consists of the core six counties) is valued at around USD 825,000.  That's average.  For the Peninsula and San Francisco, it's almost impossible to find anything under USD 1 million unless you are seeking a one-bedroom.

That's the sell side.  On the demand side, there is tremendous amount of money coming into US residential real estate from across the globe.  According to the National Association of Realtors, more than USD 153 billion was invested in the twelve months up to March 2017.  The key issue has been the price point.  A lot more people have wanted to invest in the biggest and safest single-market real estate sector but cannot afford the cost.  What SmartRE is doing is allowing everyone to invest for pocket change.  If you have a USD, then you can invest.  This allows for hedging against currency fluctuations and a good steady growth instrument.

State of the Software

We are currently in private beta and will have an invitation-only public beta in late September, with full public release in late October/early November.  Presently, we have over 1700 buyers who are ready to put down thousands of USDs each.  This is without much marketing, but just presenting at small meetups and conferences.  We anticipate that with a full marketing and grass-roots campaign after the token sale, we can ramp up faster to hit our goal of 500 houses with sizable equity liquidation on the platform by the end of 12 months, with the associated buyers.  Second year is 2,500 houses and by year five, we anticipate 180,000 houses.  We anticipate that we can be profitable by year two unless we expand into other geographies faster than forecasted.  This is only the projection for the San Francisco Bay Area.  We will go into Southern California (Los Angeles, San Diego, Beverly Hills, etc.) by the ninth month and New York by the second or third year.  We take a fee for using the platform by the homeowners and another fee corrolated to the Gas Price of the Ethereum blockchain.

Team

The team is made up of startup veterans, with the CEO helping his last startup list on the New York Stock Exchange at more than USD 8 billion in market capitalization and his sales account for that startup, SMIC, grow to over USD 150 million in less than two years.  He has a paper with over 275 citations in ACM MobiCom.  The CTO has a PhD in computer science and has over 40 peer-reviewed IEEE/ACM papers and over 20 US patents filed (with nine issued to date), and worked at top Silicon Valley companies.  The profiles can be seen here:  www.smartre.io/team

Tokensale

The token sale is scheduled to start at midnight (00:00 CEST) August 14, 2017 and run for a month or until the sale allocated tokens are all purchased.  There is a total supply of 100 million SmartRE Coins (SREs).  Note that these are WAVES-based and different from the ERC20 tokens used for each property.  We will sell up to 54% of the total supply at USD 0.30 each with a cap at USD 12.5 million.  The SREs can be used two ways: 1)as a 75% discount voucher to the fees on the platform on the buy side, or 2)when it appreciates in value, as the payment for the network.  We are doing the token sale as we would like to encourage people to use the platform as we truly believe it can benefit a lot of people on so many levels.  Of course, the homeowners and buyers benefit, but also the general economy as more capital is deployed instead of being locked up in an asset that, for most people, does not generate capital until it is 100% sold.
