Spl.yt is a blockchain-powered “public social utility,” meaning anyone with an internet connection can use it at no cost besides the gas needed to secure the blockchain. The power of decentralized cryptocurrencies and smart contracts makes this possible because users themselves can define the growth of the system while directly reaping the benefit of their contributions. What’s more, Spl.yt is run by the Spl.yt Core Foundation, a non-profit designed to work itself out of existence, leaving a system that runs itself (similar to the internet) without any controller-middleman susceptible to bias or corruption.
Spl.yt’s smart contract protocol enables the formation of a global inventory and universalized reputation scores as well as the automation of such costly processes as dispute resolution and affiliate marketing management.
Global Inventory
Once connected to Spl.yt, buyers can view the global inventory of individual listings automatically populated from all e-commerce websites integrated with the protocol. Shoppers only need to visit one e-commerce site to search for and purchase their desired item securely, and at the lowest price. Since all information from these various online retailers is integrated, once a buyer purchases an item, it will automatically de-list from every other marketplace, avoiding double-purchasing the same item. Multiple websites and platforms can contribute to and use Spl.yt’s shared inventory listing base, competing instead on other significant business differentiators, such as shipping prices, support services, specialized competence, etc. For example, if Amazon, eBay, and textbooks.com were all built on Spl.yt Core, sellers of textbooks would list their textbooks once on one platform and the Spl.yt protocol would automatically populate their inventory on any other connected website. Conversely, a buyer of textbooks would only need to browse one website to compare products and prices. Once a buyer purchases an item listed with the decentralized global inventory, it will automatically de-list from every marketplace, avoiding any risk of double-purchasing the same item.
Sellers must deposit a small number of SATs to post an item with the decentralized global inventory to deter spam and fraudulent listings. These deposited SATs will be returned to the seller, distributed to other marketplaces, or sent to other users depending on the success and behaviors exhibited throughout the transaction.

A bitcoin exchange market is a digital marketplace where traders can buy and sell bitcoins using various fiat currencies or altcoins. A bitcoin currency exchange is an online platform that acts as an intermediary between buyers and sellers of the cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency exchange is a businesses that allow customers to trade cryptocurrencies or digital currencies for other assets, such as conventional fiat money, or different digital currencies. They can be market makers that typically take the bid/ask spreads as transaction commissions for their services or simply charge fees as a matching platform.The IC Exchange will work as a hybrid peer to peer exchange that will provide its users with a friendly graphical user interface (GUI) offering wide variety of tradable financial instruments offered by the complete IC Ecosystem. The Exchange links the following components of the Ecosystem:
Front End: There is two main item, first one is IC Wallet  safeguarding the clients` digital assets, showing balances for crypto, fiat and traditional financial instruments. Second one is IC ICO Accelerator that is listing successful ICOs on the exchange at a discount.
Back End: IC Brokerage: performing the actual exchange between crypto/ fiat against traditional financial instruments.
IC Digital Bank: safeguarding clients fiat money (custodial account)
All participants will have actual accessible accounts in the Exchange, Brokerage, and Digital Bank in addition to their Wallet by completing a single KYC form.
Order Matching System : Members will trade using an online interface, either through a desktop application software provided by the IC Exchange or a web-based application. The IC Exchange will approve several software solutions from other platform providers and exchanges that can be used for trading. The trade at any online electronic exchange platform happens when the best buy order (order with highest bid price) is matched with the best sell order (order with lowest ask price) on price-time priority basis. However, before the order goes into the trading system of the exchange, it must comply with prerequisites of a valid order. Only valid orders are available for trade. The validity of an order is determined based on a set of trading parameters. The first is the order size; it should comply with a specified lot size or multiples of it. The second is the order matching by IC Exchange order book where buyer and seller are matched. The third is the verification of the member’s bank account. The fourth is the verification of the member’s brokerage account.
Also, the order will be permitted if the user of the terminal has permissible limits of trade as well as the permission to trade given by the respective member. The trading system gives tremendous flexibility to the trader to place orders as it is equipped to accept different types of orders. These can be as the following:
-Limit order: Enables the person giving the order to specify the price at which the trade is executed. Normally the limit order is below the market sell price in case of buy orders and above market buy quote in case of sell orders.
-Market Order: A type of order that gets traded at the prevailing price on or after submission. The best counter quote is treated as the order price. However, if there is no counter-quote available, then the last traded price is taken as the order price.
These types of orders are based on the flexibility of prices for the users. However, a user may also want flexibility in terms of time. This is defining the validity of an order from a time perspective. IC Exchange provides this type of flexibility. These can be used in the form of the following order types:
-Orders valid for a trading day: These are the orders that have a life for a trading day. The orders are active during the trading day unless they are cancelled by the user or executed by the system. At the end of the day, if the order has not been executed, then the order will be automatically cancelled by the IC Exchange system.
-Orders valid till a specific date: This type of order give the trader flexibility to choose a specific date up to which the order shall have its life. It implies that if as long as the order is not cancelled or gets manually executed by the user or automatically executed by the exchange system, the order will stay active in the system till the specified date.
-Orders valid till cancelled: The trader can give a permanent life to the order by using this privilege. This type of order stays alive in the system till they are cancelled. If they are not cancelled or they don’t get executed, they will always be active.
-Immediate or Cancel: It is also called as fill or kill order. This type of order does not remain pending. It is either executed or gets cancelled.
Liquidity/Full Order Book : IC Exchange will have a full order book directly connected with major crypto exchanges and global markets. The full order book provides the necessary liquidity to instantly buy and sell crypto pairs with the tightest spreads, which ensures significant volume of transactions from day one. Liquidity will be ensured by linking exchange books under the IC Exchange umbrella. Meanwhile, the IC Brokerage’s order book will be linked to the actual traditional exchanges such as CME, NASDAQ and others in order to insure execution at the most efficient price without any additional cost by intermediaries.

Interest in cryptocurrencies is currently at fever pitch with banks, businesses, and governments racing to understand the technology and how they can exploit it. As a result, the cryptocurrency market has begun to rise exponentially, and last month reached an astonishing $378 billion in market capitalization. Whatever happens next, cryptocurrencies look certain to play an increasingly influential role in the global financial system. In today’s world, most of the blockchain coin prices are driven by scarcity model and hype which is not based on real world use case. None of the blockchain is capable enough to meet the demand of enterprise and governments. They need high transaction rate and security against future thread like quantum attack. Most of the banks are still keeping themselves away from existing blockchains because of high transaction fees, partial decentralism and future quantum attacks.
TIM is a two layered blockchain-
-First layer is root blockchain which only stores Merkle hash of second layer. First layer is very light weight (approx. 4 MB data size).
-Second layer (Multigraph) is the one which stores all the transaction data in form of blocks. First layer only references the blocks of second layer. Second layer blocks are partitioned using vertical shard.
Each node (mobile device / computer running TIM core engine) in TIM network contains entire root blockchain (first layer) and only a part of the second layer blocks. Assuming there are 10,000 nodes in a network, TIM first creates cluster of nodes based on geolocation using partition technology. So the nodes which belongs to ASIA will be part of ASIA cluster and nodes which belongs to North America will belong to North America cluster. TIM call this clusters as triangles / graphs.
The transaction which is originating in North America will participate in triangle of North America only. All blocks mined in North America will be stored in each of the nodes which belong to North America region only. However, all the nodes of North America will have complete root blockchain present but only part of second layer blocks which is mined in North America. Similarly, each Node of Asia Cluster (triangle) will contain entire root blockchain of TIM but only part of second layer blocks which is mined in ASIA. This is called as vertical partition of blocks.
If the data size of entire TIM blockchain is 1 GB, then it will split among these two regions (approx. 500 MB each). So, each node of North America will store root blockchain (4 MB size) and approx. 500 MB of block data. However, in ideal scenario of 1 GB data, TIM will have many triangles (approx. 100). And data will be partitioned (using dynamic vertical partition based of geolocation) to approx. 10 MB block data. So, each node in a given triangle will have 4 MB of root blockchain and 10 MB of partitioned second layer blocks data. This will enable even a mobile device with less memory to become a node of TIM blockchain.
Triangles (cluster of Nodes) / Multigraph – Each node in the triangles communicate to each other using DAG (Directed Acyclic graph) topology. Hence, we call these triangles as graphs also. And collection of these triangles is called as Multigraph (which is the second layer of TIM blockchain). Multigraph stores entire blocks split across graph/triangles. So, if we have 100 triangles, Network will look like as below.
It is because of the DAG topology of each triangle, nodes can communicate very fast, achieving speed of 10,000 tx/sec per triangle. And if the 100 partitions are created due to the demand of transactions, then total network capacity will be around 1 million tx/sec.
However, these triangular regions are created by TIM technology on demand of transaction load. If the load increases in a given region, the TIM technology can further split triangle into two parts and there by doubling the speed of that region. TIM network auto adjusts the load based on demand and also merges the region if the demand is less. This is driven by statistical model for load balancing and using geolocation of nodes to understand the transaction load in a given geographical area.

Global official sector reaction to cryptocurrencies varies as the decentralized technology does not fit easily into existing regulatory definitions and structures. This sector will likely continue to be cautious as it monitors the risks to financial integrity, consumer protection, financial stability, tax evasion and treatment, and monetary policy. Leaders in regulation, like Japan, are likely to set the standard for the rest of the world in a scenario where the borderless nature of cryptocurrencies requires a cohesive and collaborative effort.With all of the talk of cryptocurrencies in today’s news, there are necessarily always going to be questions raised about “why does this have any value?” Even at face value, it’s definitely not the case when talking about cryptocurrencies as a movement generally, but even on top of that, there are certain cryptocurrencies that carry a lot more weight to them — and that’s where the INGOT Coin system comes into play.
Though there is plenty of fair skepticism of any new asset class in the expanding world of FinTech and cryptocurrencies, there are also certain coins that stick out a lot more than others. While plenty of coins and tokens rely mainly on public perception of value or speculation about the potential for value in the future, the INGOT family of coins is the first to come to the market to offer real, tangible value for the cryptocurrency. INGOT Coin will create a complete solution by integrating 6 core ecosystem components and providing a one-stop-shop for the digital asset, traditional asset and currency markets to solve all the above-mentioned challenges, thus, creating a link between the crypto market and the traditional market. The IC Ecosystem will establish 6 different components to work hand in hand under one umbrella, providing all community members the chance to capitalize on upcoming opportunities in all markets. The Ecosystem’s components, as shown below, are the IC Wallet, IC Exchange, IC Brokerage, IC Digital Bank, IC Certifier and IC ICO Accelerator.
INGOT Coin will provide a platform that meets the needs of beginner as well as advanced traders to trade with minimal initial capital. IC will also provide its own cryptocurrency, which will be available on different exchanges for all investors and market participants to purchase. IC will show no bias towards any market participant and will provide fair and equal opportunities to all participants regardless of size of trade, type of order or initial capital.
To ensure no means for market manipulation and leakage of unethical or illegal money in the Ecosystem, the KYC and AML policies must suffice and exceed the needs of all parties, whether its regulators, banks, brokers or exchanges. The KYC and AML compliance may seem strict to some investors; however, this is a necessary procedure to ensure the safety of the Ecosystem and all stakeholders. This is done to make the Ecosystem trustworthy, secure, transparent and compliant; consequently, filling the Ecosystem’s singular KYC allows participants to open one account in the IC Digital Bank, the IC Exchange, the IC Brokerage, and the IC wallet simultaneously to trade crypto, fiat, and traditional instruments hereon after.

On-demand downloadable and streamable content are a standard expected by consumers. These developments have led to more modular offering for viewers, who now possess the ability to watch programs free of time constraints once imposed by networks. This has thrown a proverbial wrench into the works where monetization in this sector is concerned.
In the wake of these developments, shows and advertisers alike are lost. Targeting viewers, as well as gleaning insights, was once a task made easy by having specific shows aired at specific times. As audiences increasingly migrate to the internet for their content, these methods are no longer as efficient as they once were, and will only continue to diminish in effectiveness over time.
OTT refers to the act of content providers delivering content over the internet via streaming to a specific device or smart TV apps like Roku, Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV. OTT apps offer viewers access to HBO, Netflix, Hulu, SlingTV and other video services, as well as “TVOD,” or “TV On Demand.” As an industry poised to reach a valuation exceeding $160 billion by 2025, it’s clear that this is a market brimming with untapped potential for advertisers and content providers; however, there are still some challenges to resolve before these opportunities can fully be realized.
Evidently, there’s a need for standardized metrics for content providers and advertisers in OTT. The HIT Protocol team believes that blockchain technology is the perfect technology for achieving interoperability between these stakeholders while strengthening the bonds between them and their viewers. We’re strong proponents of tokenization to drive interactions, allowing individuals to enjoy a more personal experience while earning rewards, as well as providing advertisers and shows with in-depth data about their viewership.
The HIT Protocol and its use of the distributed ledger technology comes with a number of benefits that are set to revolutionize this sector, including immutability, transparency and micro-transacting. Combined, these give users granular control over their own experiences, and shift the focus of the ecosystem to a more viewer-centric model. Incentivizing viewers is key to ensuring that quality insights can continue to be derived from a highly lucrative and core component of the entertainment industry, and ensuring a widespread standard will be paramount to its long-term viability.
There’s a reason why blockchain technology is taking off, and there’s no shortage of use cases where it can be successfully applied in the TV and OTT industries. The sector is in need of a solution, which the HIT Protocol aims to provide. From smart contracts automating some of the existing infrastructures’ laborious tasks, to implementing a vastly more secure means of storing information, to strengthening the connection between viewers and the content they enjoy, distributed ledger tech is an excellent tool by which to enhance existing processes and redefine the industry as it stands.
In order for OTT to achieve its fullest potential and meet the needs of viewers, advertisers, and content providers, it’s crucial that we acknowledge and implement technologies such as blockchain to incentivize viewers and to streamline the evolution of the industry to benefit all parties.These are our official social platforms:

Mr. Whitlock’s extensive experience covers small start-ups to global Fortune 500 companies. Warren also runs his own radio show and specializes in social media and digital advertising. Whitlock has been involved with blockchain related companies for several years and has been advising several on digital strategies. Mr. Whitlock is credited with writing the first book on Twitter, explaining how technology and social media would revolutionize the way the world does business. Nearly all the predictions from Mr. Whitlock’s book came to life, a testament to his experience and foresight in the digital marketing industry.Warren Whitlock has been named one of the 100 Most Influential Blockchain People as well as Top 10 Social Media Power Influencers. Now, TIM Foundation is happy to welcome him to their advisory team.
It is hardly possible to be a crypto enthusiast and not know who Warren Whitlock is. Warren is a digital business development strategist who, in 2008, wrote the first book about Twitter and Mobile Marketing, and the best selling “Profitable Social Media: Business Results Without Playing Games.” He is the host of Social Media Radio and speaks frequently about social media marketing, online publicity and marketing, social networking and building lifetime value for rapid growth. Warren was named one of Forbes’ Top 10 Social Media Power Influencers of 2013 and, importantly for us, he has started a spectacular career as a passionate advisor on marketing and blockchain.
He became known for writing about digital media tools: among other things, he is the author of the first book about Twitter “Twitter Revolution”, in which he analyzes the power of social media and explains how to use it effectively. With a twitter following of over 525K users, he certainly knows what he is talking about. Billions Rising: Empowering Self-Reliance Around the Globe which is actually another book of Warren Whitlock, played an important role in the fact that the author join TIM Foundation. Billions Rising is a real-world documentation of the old proverb which tells us if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; but if you teach him how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. Across the globe, there are well-meaning organizations giving handouts to people in need. But the more sustainable solution comes from the projects, non-profits and companies who strive to give people a hand up rather than a handout. While mainstream media buries these inspiring stories, Billions Rising shines the spotlight into the darkness and boldly proclaims what the world tries to ignore: a foundation for self-reliance is the best gift that anybody can receive.

As e-commerce evolved, so did all supporting systems, including inventory management, affiliate marketing, delivery and fulfillment, and buyer and seller reviews. But what we’re seeing now is a stagnation in this natural development caused by the formation of oligopolies of the prevailing legacy marketplaces. In other words, the top ten e-commerce companies in the US leverage their data reach and operational infrastructures to prevent newcomers from gaining traction.As the e-commerce system stands today, sellers must switch between different marketplaces in order to update their inventory, which consumes precious time and resources. Spl.yt powers a revamped e-commerce system that enables inventory to be updated automatically across different marketplaces — no more accidental double-selling items that can jeopardize your reputation.
“Affiliate Marketers” Is this you?
Affiliate marketing describes the system of cross-marketing and cross-promotion that occurs throughout the sale of a product in e-commerce. (This is a highly influential market currently contributing 16% of all US e-commerce sales with an estimated growth rate of 10% annually to $6.8B in 2020.) Affiliate marketing commissions are paid on a “per-click,” “per-signup,” or “per-sale” basis, but keeping track of these payments are often problematic without a trustworthy tracking mechanism.
The Spl.yt protocol uses “smart contracts” to automate payments to affiliate marketers. This data is then recorded on the permanent blockchain ledger so that if a disagreement between parties were to arise, an automated resolution pact would be triggered. The requirement of economic investment deters potential scammers and rewards honest behavior. When disputes are settled swiftly, it saves all sides time and resources.To learn more about Spl.yt and the decentralized future of e-commerce, visit Spl.yt Website: https://www.spl.yt/

If you are going to get into buying any cryptocurrencies besides Bitcoin, you will most likely have to start to venture into the exchanges.Exchanges are where you can trade coins for other coins or traditional currencies like Dollars and Euros.They function somewhat like the New York Stock Exchange.

Teamwork can be best defined as “the process of working collaboratively with a group in order to achieve a goal.” It is about gathering together a group of individuals from different backgrounds in hopes that their collective talents, skills, and experiences will provide a more efficient and successful outcome.A crucial aspect of any workplace, not only does successful teamwork benefit the group as a whole, but it can also enhance personal development for the individuals involved. Essential attributes of teamwork such as communication, commitment, providing support, and sharing ideas and responsibility are exercised and reinforced when working on teamwork projects. Once the project has been accomplished, members of the team can walk away with their improved skills and apply them elsewhere in their work or even personal life.
Talking.IM (TIM) is a revolutionary blockchain network that utilizes a two-layer implementation that shards, or splits, the universal blockchain into a number of DAGs(graphs) in order to maximize efficiency of the network and provide a framework that can scale to any level of activity, potentially taking on even 100 million transactions per section.Every investor want to find out everything they can about the team, especially the development team and the advisory board.

As the e-commerce system stands today, sellers must switch between different marketplaces in order to update their inventory, which consumes precious time and resources. Spl.yt powers a revamped e-commerce system that enables inventory to be updated automatically across different marketplaces — no more accidental double-selling items that can jeopardize your reputation.
“Affiliate Marketers” Is this you?
Affiliate marketing describes the system of cross-marketing and cross-promotion that occurs throughout the sale of a product in e-commerce. (This is a highly influential market currently contributing 16% of all US e-commerce sales with an estimated growth rate of 10% annually to $6.8B in 2020.) Affiliate marketing commissions are paid on a “per-click,” “per-signup,” or “per-sale” basis, but keeping track of these payments are often problematic without a trustworthy tracking mechanism.
The Spl.yt protocol uses “smart contracts” to automate payments to affiliate marketers. This data is then recorded on the permanent blockchain ledger so that if a disagreement between parties were to arise, an automated resolution pact would be triggered. The requirement of economic investment deters potential scammers and rewards honest behavior. When disputes are settled swiftly, it saves all sides time and resources.To learn more about Spl.yt and the decentralized future of e-commerce, visit Spl.yt Website: https://www.spl.yt/

The HIT Protocol, an iPowow initiative, takes this audience participation to the next level by incentivizing even more and deeper engagement. The system accomplishes this by offering additional rewards to viewers for their participation. Rewards are distributed to viewers in HIT tokens which can then be redeemed for valuable goods and services in the Digital Shopping Plaza. By use of smart contracts and the tokenization enabled by blockchain technology, the HIT Protocol dramatically upgrades the way viewers engage with shows and brands. Viewers will look forward to seeing their favorite shows so they can have the opportunity to earn HITs.A great example of a show iPowow worked with to improve audience engagement was “Modern Family” on the USA Network, sponsored by Target. Viewers had the opportunity of going to ModernFamilyLive.com while the show was airing and to participate live on their 2nd screens. Viewers were given fun options like choosing whose side they were on when dilemas came up between characters, guessing the outcome of a situation, or voicing their own opinions on a plot quandary. As soon as viewers picked an option, they could see what percentage of others agreed with their decision. As viewers played along with the show, they could also see which top 5 viewers racked up the most points by being right on their guesses for outcomes. This made for a satisfying, real-time, community-based experience, beyond just watching the show. Modern Family fans could let their love of the show be known to other fans and flaunt their knowledge of the characters by engaging and competing as the show aired.
Another example of enhanced viewing experience used Facebook Live to interact with a Top 30 News anchor as she shared news bits from different years occuring on that day. Emoticons floated across the screens of smartphones as reactions were shared in real time by viewers. The news anchor was able to share the results of a poll about a controversial current event topic and comment on the percentages on both sides of the issue. In this way, individuals were able to directly contribute to the entire viewing experience by providing feedback that was incorporated by the news anchor.These are our official social platforms:

Oligopolies through history have ranged from steel manufacturers to wireless carriers, oil companies to e-commerce. In general, an oligopoly is not good for a free market economy because it tends to block new competition, slows innovation, and increase prices. Firms in an oligopoly often set prices, either collectively — such as by a cartel like OPEC — or under the leadership of a single member. This way, profit margins are artificially kept higher than they would be in a truly competitive free marketWhat all of these behemoths have in common is their insatiable hunger and capacity for the personal data of consumers. Every time a sale is made, a customer’s data is collected, aggregated and used toward facilitating more sales. The problem with this kind of endless appetite, is an inherent lack of transparency and privacy that come with a centralized organization actively mining data from its users. The oligopoly of e-commerce — Amazon, eBay and Alibaba — are calling all the shots with consumers’ data.
This problem has become increasingly dangerous, as issues of fraud, identity theft, and other privacy issues have finally come to the attention of lawmakers in the European Union, resulting in the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR as it’s known. This regulation came into effect across the EU on May 25, 2018 and sets principles for data management and the rights of the individual, while imposing fines that can be revenue-based. The General Data Protection Regulation covers all companies that deal with data of EU citizens, so it’s critical for corporate compliance officers. And it’s giving them all a major headache as they scramble to avoid the fines associated with non-compliance. Such are the problems of a centralized system. These are the issues of middlemen.
Spl.yt takes the power from the big data gobbling giants of e-commerce and gives it back to buyers and sellers, who can freely engage in a true peer-to-peer experience, securely and simply via blockchain technology and smart contracts. Through this decentralized, more efficient system, the middleman is eliminated. Time and money are saved by automating key intermediary functions via smart contracts. Spl.yt token economics incentivizes its users to transact fairly for a more secure e-commerce experience. Data is not mined by any central authority. Private data is protected, not harvested and used.
The Giants of e-commerce will not be taken down by a bigger giant, but by a global community of individuals all freely connecting with each other through a decentralized e-commerce ecosystem By decentralizing e-commerce, these giants will simply no longer be needed. Smart contracts will automatically facilitate payment to service providers along the e-commerce retail chain (affiliate marketers, dropshippers, etc.). And e-commerce giants will go the way of the dinosaur. To learn more about Spl.yt and the decentralized future of e-commerce, visit https://www.spl.yt/learn-more.

The IC Exchange will work as a hybrid peer to peer exchange that will provide its users with a friendly graphical user interface (GUI) offering wide variety of tradable financial instruments offered by the complete IC Ecosystem. The Exchange links the following components of the Ecosystem:

Front End
There is two main item, first one is IC Wallet  safeguarding the clients` digital assets, showing balances for crypto, fiat and traditional financial instruments. Second one is IC ICO Accelerator that is listing successful ICOs on the exchange at a discount.

Back End
IC Brokerage: performing the actual exchange between crypto/ fiat against traditional financial instruments.
IC Digital Bank: safeguarding clients fiat money (custodial account)
All participants will have actual accessible accounts in the Exchange, Brokerage, and Digital Bank in addition to their Wallet by completing a single KYC form.

Order Matching System
Members will trade using an online interface, either through a desktop application software provided by the IC Exchange or a web-based application. The IC Exchange will approve several software solutions from other platform providers and exchanges that can be used for trading. The trade at any online electronic exchange platform happens when the best buy order (order with highest bid price) is matched with the best sell order (order with lowest ask price) on price-time priority basis. However, before the order goes into the trading system of the exchange, it must comply with prerequisites of a valid order.

Only valid orders are available for trade. The validity of an order is determined based on a set of trading parameters. The first is the order size; it should comply with a specified lot size or multiples of it. The second is the order matching by IC Exchange order book where buyer and seller are matched. The third is the verification of the member’s bank account. The fourth is the verification of the member’s brokerage account.

Also, the order will be permitted if the user of the terminal has permissible limits of trade as well as the permission to trade given by the respective member. The trading system gives tremendous flexibility to the trader to place orders as it is equipped to accept different types of orders. These can be as the following:
-Limit order: Enables the person giving the order to specify the price at which the trade is executed. Normally the limit order is below the market sell price in case of buy orders and above market buy quote in case of sell orders.
-Market Order: A type of order that gets traded at the prevailing price on or after submission. The best counter quote is treated as the order price. However, if there is no counter-quote available, then the last traded price is taken as the order price.

These types of orders are based on the flexibility of prices for the users. However, a user may also want flexibility in terms of time. This is defining the validity of an order from a time perspective. IC Exchange provides this type of flexibility. These can be used in the form of the following order types:
-Orders valid for a trading day: These are the orders that have a life for a trading day. The orders are active during the trading day unless they are cancelled by the user or executed by the system. At the end of the day, if the order has not been executed, then the order will be automatically cancelled by the IC Exchange system.
-Orders valid till a specific date: This type of order give the trader flexibility to choose a specific date up to which the order shall have its life. It implies that if as long as the order is not cancelled or gets manually executed by the user or automatically executed by the exchange system, the order will stay active in the system till the specified date.
-Orders valid till cancelled: The trader can give a permanent life to the order by using this privilege. This type of order stays alive in the system till they are cancelled. If they are not cancelled or they don’t get executed, they will always be active.
-Immediate or Cancel: It is also called as fill or kill order. This type of order does not remain pending. It is either executed or gets cancelled.

Liquidity/Full Order Book
IC Exchange will have a full order book directly connected with major crypto exchanges and global markets. The full order book provides the necessary liquidity to instantly buy and sell crypto pairs with the tightest spreads, which ensures significant volume of transactions from day one. Liquidity will be ensured by linking exchange books under the IC Exchange umbrella. Meanwhile, the IC Brokerage’s order book will be linked to the actual traditional exchanges such as CME, NASDAQ and others in order to insure execution at the most efficient price without any additional cost by intermediaries.

IC Exchange utilizes liquidity pools to reduce time, cost, and deficiencies. Today, investors would have to go through a long and costly process to trade; If the Investor has shares and wishes to buy a cryptocurrency, the investor must first sell his shares with his broker and liquidate the value of the shares in fiat then wait for settlement to wire transfer the money. After receiving the fiat value of the shares in his bank account, the investor must buy the desired cryptocurrency from his preferred exchange after registering and going through a lengthy verification time, that is of course is if the buyer’s bank allows transferring funds to crypto websites or platforms.

Furthermore, most platforms have a daily limit and high fees to buy crypto assets. The whole latter process will have different time and cost constraints as well as different pricing and availability for different investors. The reason behind the constraints and the restrictions is the fact that in almost all scenarios, the Brokerage, Bank and Exchange charge fees and that they are separate entities with intermediaries between them charging even more fees and lengthening the process. The same transaction could be done under the IC Ecosystem without having to go through that process.

The IC Ecosystem relieves participants from all of the previous excessive cost and time as well as provides unrestricted market availability by integrating all previously mentioned components together and eliminating the role of intermediaries. When an IC Bank account owner chooses to buy a crypto asset, a smart contract is initiated, and the fiat funds are transferred almost immediately to the IC Exchange where the order is put, and the IC Bank account balance is adjusted, once the order is settled the user’s IC Wallet is deposited with the crypto fund.

Order Routing
In order to provide the highest liquidity standards, the order execution process might be extended to two or three levels to ensure that the trade will be executed in an efficient and timely manner. Whereas a client’s request to buy AAPL against Bitcoin (APPL/BTC) could be executed at two levels, the first selling Bitcoin against fiat (BTC/USD) and the second will be buying Apple against USD (AAPL/USD). This whole process will be done automatically without any human intervention. The trading of cryptocurrencies in the IC exchange will consist of a three-level process:  Step 1: Order Placing: The IC users will place their market or limit orders on the IC Exchange Platform based on the current best prices shown on the IC Exchange. Step 2: Order Matching: The IC Exchange order book connects the buyers and the sellers when the best buy order (order with highest bid price) is matched with the best sell order (order with lowest offer price) on price-time priority basis. Step 3: Order Delivery: The order delivery adapts to the type of order; direct trading orders involving only cryptocurrencies will transfer value from the seller’s IC Wallet to the buyer’s IC Wallet without interference by third parties, whereas the active components delivering the order are the users’ IC Wallets, while the IC Exchange is using the order matching system to connect the buyer and seller users together. The Ecosystem utilizes all the different components to provide the participants with seamless delivery in crypto, fiat, and traditional instruments.

Coin Listing Platform
INGOT will use the Distributed Ledger Platform Asset Issuance Module which will provide its Ecosystem participants with an environment to list their newly issued coins and pair them against fiat and other available cryptocurrencies.

When many websites and marketplaces work together through Spl.yt, they can focus on competing on what matters most to customers — like shipping costs/delivery speed, support, niche expertise, etc. Further, independent sellers will love these features as well. For example, when Amazon, eBay, and textbooks.com are all on Spl.yt, a student selling their old textbooks can list to one website and the Spl.yt protocol will take care of the rest to make sure the listing is in front of every potential buyer. Everyone saves time, energy and money with Spl.yt!
Every marketplace worries about the threat of fraud and dissatisfied customers. They know how fake listings can scare away customers and cause unnecessary disputes, all while distracting from their quality products. Fake web-crawler/bot hits are notorious for running up click-through marketing commissions. And a hack or failure of centralized marketplaces can lose sellers’ revenue and customer respect.
Spl.yt counters these issues with token economics, decentralization, and smart contract security. In the Spl.yt ecosystem, customers and sellers can easily settle disputes through our Dispute Resolution Protocol, which ensures any complaint is painlessly and fairly resolved. Token rewards entice anyone to police spam from the comfort of their own home. And because decentralized smart contracts are always running, sellers can know commissions are only paid when due and only quality products are listed — all without downtime. Every existing marketplace will enjoy an upgrade with Spl.yt.

The currency would also compensate viewers for sharing data — quickly proving to be a precious commodity — about who they are, what they watch and what they buy. And if all of this wasn’t buzzworthy enough, the iPowow folks are planning to use blockchain as the technological foundation for their new business. What iPowow calls HIT tokens and the HIT protocol can benefit the TV business by offering three solutions to problems such as viewers watching on noncommercial platforms, inconsistent cross-platform audience measurement and a lack of data about TV advertising,iPowow plans to build its new HIT protocol on a blockchain foundation and migrate its current technology to blockchain as well by year end. Blockchain enables the cryptocurrency HIT tokens, which cost less to distribute initially than real dollars and also provide transparency, immutability and consistency while decentralizing account information. The HIT protocol will also be open, allowing other companies to develop apps, which will increase the utility of the system. iPowow has been scanning the horizon but doesn’t see any competitor ready to implement an effective TV rewards program. “The way we see it is, someone going to do this,” Douglas said. “Someone’s going to produce a media engagement token that’s global and covers all video interactions, and people get rewarded for watching and they can go spend it on things. We say it’s going to be us, so that’s what we’re going to do.”There have been previous efforts to create reward systems for watching TV. GetGlue, which rewarded viewers with stickers, was acquired in 2012 by Viggle, a mobile app that offered points that could be exchanged for gift cards or access to premium content. For the past seven years, iPowow has been in what it dubbed the “participation TV” business, creating interactive features that can be sponsored for 200 shows on networks such as ABC, Fox and USA, local stations and digital video platforms such as Facebook Live and Twitch. For Twitch, iPowow created an extension that lets viewers pay gamers they’re watching live and have input into how games will be played. Douglas said iPowow has demonstrated that its system works whether on the first screen or second screen, and on all platforms — linear broadcast, VOD, over-the-top and online. He hopes to raise the millions iPowow will need in AugustThese are our official social platforms:

What you have already seen is that blockchain distributed ledger is an in-erasable record of bitcoin transactions. The network of computers around the world running bitcoin software will take care of the performance and maintenance of the blockchain network. About six times per hour, a new group of accepted transactions (a block) is created, added to the blockchain and quickly published to all nodes. This allows bitcoin software to determine when a particular bitcoin amount has been spent.
It is this feature of Blockchain technology that has grown in its popularity amongst large banks, developers and entrepreneurs. Many startups are building their businesses around blockchain technology. Let’s look at the real-world applications of the TIM blockchain -those supported by large and active developer communities.

TIM blockchain
TIM is enterprise ready. Amongst many, few applications of TIM blockchain are discussed below:
Enterprise blockchain: TIM can scale from 100 TPS to 100 Million TPS by dynamically sharding in smaller shards and maintaining a global consensus of every transaction through two layers of graph and blockchain. Thus, TIM provides an unprecedented level of performance and cross commerce opportunity for hosting transaction-based businesses, i.e. finance, banking, logistics, ecommerce, etc. The crossindustry commerce is highly frictional due to huge amount of integration required. For example, to create a partnership between logistics and healthcare business, one needs to integrate two different types of ERP systems, CRM, and EDI (electronic data exchanges). Even the same industry verticals can benefit from TIM blockchain. Like consumer banking and fx-trading businesses can become seamless using secure, encrypted and anonymous features to quickly move their inventories with least amount of integration. Below image shows one of the TIM venture in banking space.
TIM is also developing free Taxi service on fee free subchain. The taxi service will run on the smart contract. This will cut down / disrupt aggregator services like Uber and Ola in the developing nations charging very high commissions up to 30 % from taxi drivers.

Government Blockchain: Seamless Global Currencies - TIM blockchain is going to host electronic currencies for governments and regional unions. The possibilities are endless for faster trade and commerce, banking transparency as well as frictionless settlements. $TIM is the internal money of TIM blockchain to manage the trust and consensus of the humongous TIM network. The currencies of the governments and their supplies can be controlled by the central banking regulators based on their own bespoke demands. This provides unprecedentedlevel of access to various kinds of economic opportunities and control over the bad actors. High performance network of TIM blockchain ensures that all the currency businesses for all the nations can be hosted on a single network and also without any direct mining fees. The currencies are hosted in a hybrid of main-net and subchains so that only they have minimal presence on main network for optimal control and lowest mining fees. All the major businesses are handled in fee free subchains of TIM.
Personal Blockchain: Fee Free subchains to be your personal blockchain - TIM can host 2^60 subchains which are protected by fee free challenger nodes. With same level of performance and security as TIM network, subchains can be your new email address or health record or roaming data storage like dropbox. There are a host of benefits where such a mailbox could be totally encrypted and free of any advertising or profiling your communications. It can be used for other services like one can pay for what you use for storage or bandwidth.

The announcement that Bitcoin would be considered legal tender in Japan pushed the price of Bitcoin up by 2% in just 24 hours, and increased the price globally by 160% for the next two months. China’s decision to shut down several Bitcoin exchanges and ban initial coin offerings (a form of crowdfunding often paid for with cryptocurrencies) sent the price of Bitcoin plummeting by 29% in 24 hours. Although Bitcoin is a decentralised currency, some decisions about how it will work or evolve need to be made from time to time. These also have an impact on the price.
The software used to verify Bitcoin transactions is created by developers and is run by miners (the global network people who verify Bitcoin transactions).
To change the software used to mine and authenticate transactions developers need more than 50% of the global network of miners to agree with that change. When they get that support they can create a “fork”.
Establishing alliances and strategic partnerships across industries help in enabling knowledge creations as well as gaining diverse perspectives from every side of the spectrum.
When several independent companies that are working towards a similar goal come in unison to form a business ecosystem, they are better poised to deliver successful results and understand the needs of the customers within the business landscape. Customers and clients also value partnerships and corporate alliances due to reasons such as increased capital, more advisors and proven track record.

INGOT Coin aims to cultivate an coordinated global community of  positiveness and cooperation on which the basis of integrity and transparency between its members exist. The perspective and plan of INGOT is to offer the community with real Utility value whether Bitcoin was at a new low or high. To achieve that aim INGOT has partnered with multiple ICOs in order to provide numerous Utilities with an access from one platform. INGOT also does not base their coin on Ethereum or Bitcoin but rather on USD value.

The ICOs are all in different industries from Health to Financial services and E-commerce to Real Estate. INGOT Coin, GMEX-Group, BolttCoin, Modern Finance Chain (MFChain), SwachhCoin, Black.Insure, PlaceToRent (PTRT), Bineuro and Stella have all formed a unified front under one alliance. The group of ICOs along with GMEX plan to establish a single platform that will allow all their communities to use their utilities simultaneously. Furthermore, plans of enabling different discounts among each one of the ICOs is being discussed in order to give edge to all participants.
