Sirin Labs’ FINNEY device was announced this week as the world’s first blockchain smartphone.

Inside the data provided by the company (Sirin Labs) we’ve gotten a fair idea of what could work, what will be difficult, and what will be downright impossible to accomplish.

Back in 2013 the company Sirin Labs was founded to create the most extravagant smartphone in the world.

They made a $17,000 device called Solarin, a smartphone made with security as its most primary feature.

The co-founder and president of Sirin Labs is Moshe Hogeg.

The Solarin phone was set to run with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 (now replaced by newer chips a couple times over).

Every time is like this: filling forms with username, email, credit card, phone number, password and more.

Otherwise, just go to the social-connect button and use your Google/Facebook account as your identification.

Then, get an app like Dashlane to manage passwords and, finally, go sharing and purchasing things.

There’s a reason behind the current platform-centric architecture we live in: when you’re not paying the product, you’re the product.

Which basically means other parties own and sell your data.

Nothing new here, although many people still don’t care about it anyway.

ICOs, or initial coin offerings, are becoming increasingly popular, creating a multi-billion-dollar market.

With the competition extremely stiff, it makes the marketing strategy a crucial component of the success (or failure) of the ICO.

If you have an interesting story, present it in a way that it not only attracts potential backers, but also turns them into supporters.

And they do this because they didn’t just one day decide to be experts in their fields.

It’s also a good idea to make sure your entire team is highlighted as this puts a face with the ICO and makes your token appear more human.

PUBLIQ, a non-profit foundation, is announcing its upcoming blockchain-based platform for creating and sharing original news and media content.

The ICO is designed to empower authors and readers to combat fake news, using a “Bitcoin-like” system.

File this under: “2017 in a nutshell.”

In the fight against fake news this means publishers who have no way of controlling authored content without resorting to censorship, or entrusting community monitors, could be on the chopping block.

PUBLIQ intends to create a trusted economy, using blockchain, where all profits gained through its platform will be distributed between content providers and others participating in its inherent rewards system.

The foundation will be launching an ICO to provide a rewards token called PBQ.

Token sales, better known as ICOs, are the biggest disruptor in the technology world this year — perhaps even this decade.

During the first half of 2017, more money was raised via ICOs than through traditional early stage venture capital financing.

That’s according to research from Goldman Sachs, a pillar of the traditional finance world, no less.

Only a few established, venture-backed startups have taken the ICO route, but as more do, the results of their token sales are likely to encourage other founders and CEO to follow them down the path.

Yet, despite the growth and undoubted potential, little is known about the specifics of preparing for ICOs.

How do you go about holding an ICO?

The tech industry is about to get its largest clue as to just how mainstream ICOs can become in the future.

Most of those token sales have centered around ambitious products that are not yet assembled but will be developed using the proceeds.

The companies behind the ICOs themselves are, for the most part, fairly new, and certainly far less mature than the average IPO candidate.

Unlike typical ICO companies, Kik…

has mainstream traction via its messaging app, with 15 million monthly users

has raised more than $170 million from investors that include Chinese internet giant Tencent

Because, let’s face it, when the due diligence consists of scrolling through a website, and in some cases reading a white paper, it’s really not enough to tell whether a project has strong fundamentals or is a pump and dump scheme.

CrowdWiz’s concept is that crowds often reach conclusions that are more accurate than those taken by an individual, even if that person is an expert in his or her field.

Crowds are supposedly smarter because of their diverse range of views, open-mindedness, and culture of sharing.

CrowdWiz’s mission, in the words of the founders, is to “completely democratise the investing process by eliminating intermediaries and placing the power and control where it belongs — entirely into the hands of investors.”

CrowdWiz’s first product will be WizFund, a self-governed crypto fund.

Users can create their own funds and, through voting, members will decide how and where the fund should invest.

Sooner or later, every finance craze turns into performance art.

In 2008, a young Portland tech-support worker named Mike Merrill sold shares in himself through a “personal IPO.” And today, Evan Prodromou is minting the hours of his life into a cryptocurrency called Evancoin.

Like many developers and entrepreneurs—Prodromou founded Wikitravel in 2003 and is now the cofounder of the Montreal-based AI startup fuzzy.ai—Prodromou has an inbox that brims with requests for his time: Can I pick your brain about this project?

Then you can use these tokens by “paying” for his time with them.

You could also just sell your Evancoins for cash: As of this writing, each Evancoin, representing an hour of Prodromou’s attention, is worth about $45.

(That’s well below his usual consulting rate, but he’s pleased nonetheless—it’s early days for the currency, and the market is acknowledging the worth of his time, then discounting for the risk inherent in the scheme’s novelty.)

People often get mixed vibes when asked about VR saying it is a fun entertainment platform which could be the medium of entertainment in the future.

Yes, of course it is going to change the way we see the entertainment industry now.

But the future of VR has a very distant place to go.

VR is going to play a major role in the field of education, medical and other fields which were unimaginable.

What is also possible in VR is the experience of report by the ‘New York times’ showing the “fight for Falluja” documentary which was the first ever documentary shot in 3600 VR staying in the war zone which really can take you to the scene of fire fight and have a glimpse of life at the war affected zones.

The people, the interaction, their food, the experience which let alone you’ll have cannot be achieved in VR.

They would run it, and send the results back to you in the form of a printout.

Rendering images or games is what happens when you submit your graphics or animation project, and the big computer, in this case a data center, goes to work on it.

That’s where blockchain comes in, and it’s why Urbach is starting an Initial Coin Offering for what he calls a Render Token.

We’ve seen, over the last four years, the price of that not really change a lot.

That’s the big issue that I’m trying to unblock here.

We’re at the point where we’re able to measure the benchmark for that so well — today, render farms, whether they’re rendering or not, they measure their efficiency and the value of what they’re delivering in Octane bench per dollars.

This is another area that could be completely transformed by blockchain, and clearly the most high profile organisations are interested.

Twenty eight banks are now poised to test a proof of concept (PoC) Swift application for blockchain.

The purpose of the test is to ascertain whether blockchain can be efficiently used for managing international nostro accounts in real time.

Nostro accounts are owned by banks that hold foreign currency in another bank.

Traditionally the reconciliation process is complex, and a bank’s positions cannot be followed in real time.

This area targeted by the Swift application is a prime example of an area that blockchain could potentially streamline and revolutionise.

While a year ago blockchain was an unknown side note synonymous with Bitcoin, today there are dozens of applications making their way into mainstream media.

To many, blockchain is a foreign concept reserved for computer science junkies and is irrelevant to the average mom and pop, but what many don’t realize is that blockchain is similar to familiar pillar in everyone’s lives: community.

In a sense it is, for it allows us to build useful applications on top of it, but truly, it is just a group of individuals who follow a certain set of rules that allow them to trust each other.

As communities and blockchains grow, there are more participants devoting time, resources, and capital to the network, making it more valuable with every user that joins.

But you may ask, “Tribes eat, sleep, live and hunt together.

In the simplest form, the only rule of the blockchain community is — ‘whenever you do something important, shout and let everyone know.’ If blockchain was used to power a currency (like Bitcoin), the important action worth announcement would be the act of sending money to another person.

The global gaming market has been growing by double-digits in recent years, hitting $91 billion in revenues last year.

SuperData Research called it the “biggest year in the digital games market and playable media world ever.”

While the biggest growth has come from segments like mobile gaming, new technologies have the potential to radically upend the gaming market, providing newfound growth opportunities.

Blockchains will disrupt traditional gaming companies

Blockchains are known for their ability to bring decentralization to massive industries, pushing the power from centralized organizations to the consumers themselves.

New blockchain-focused startups are springing up right and left, but this week an established mobile measurement firm is jumping on the bandwagon.

Kochava began in 2011 as a provider of attribution and other marketing analytics for mobile, and, in recent times, it has expanded into web, desktop, Xbox, Oculus VR and other channels.

The Idaho-based firm is expanding again with its recent announcement of an open source blockchain framework for recording online ad insertion orders (IO) called XCHNG (pronounced “exchange”).

This blockchain-based ecosystem of ad targeting, ad serving, billing, payment, attribution and ratings providers is currently existing as an internal alpha at Kochava, CEO Charles Manning told me, following several years of development.

The intention is to get other providers of these services — including other attribution/measurement providers — on board and to launch in third or fourth quarter of next year.

Silicon Valley-based blockchain startup BitClave is holding a presale of its tokens today in advance of its September initial coin offering (ICO).

Instead of running a search via Google and letting Google intermediate (give your data to advertisers and pitch you appropriate ads), for example, you could search via BitClave and receive payment for the data you’re willing to share in exchange for targeted ads.

Smart contracts are self-executing and run directly on the blockchain without involving an intermediary.

The technology would not only be a reinvention of search but could also solve the ad-blocking problem that has been making it hard for publishers to profit from their content in recent years.

With users able to profit from viewing ads, there is less incentive to block them.

It’s a very interesting experiment, although to successfully pit itself against search behemoth Google, BitClave will need substantial backing and some momentum.
