Qtum is an open sourced public blockchain platform, leveraging the security of UTXO while enabling multiple virtual machines including EVM and the revolutionary x86 VM. Qtum is PoS based and boasts a Decentralized Governance Protocol (DGP) allowing specific blockchain settings to be modified by making use of smart contracts. For instance, the block size of Qtum can be increased without the need of a hard fork. Qtum Coin combines functions of ETH and BTC. It is an UTXO-based smart contract system that utilizes a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus model. Qtum presents great possibilities considering its combination of Bitcoin’s security and ETH’s smart contract functionality. Qtum focuses on providing an ecosystem that helps small to large companies create smart contracts. This makes it a toolkit designed to be both robust and modular. Users can produce their own tokens, participate in agreements that are self-executing as well as automatic supply. Not only that, but it will all function in an entirely standardized environment.
Decred (/ˈdi:ˈkred/, /dɪˈkred/, dee-cred) is a blockchain-based cryptocurrency with a strong focus on community input, open governance, and sustainable funding for development. It utilizes a hybrid Proof-of-Work (PoW) and Proof-of-Stake (PoS) mining system to ensure that a small group cannot dominate the flow of transactions or make changes to Decred without the input of the community. A unit of the currency is called a decred (DCR). Stakeholders make and enforce the blockchain’s consensus rules, set a course for future development, and decide how the project’s treasury is used to fund it. Decred’s blockchain is similar to Bitcoin’s, but with major aspects of governance baked into the protocol. To align incentives, block rewards are split between Proof-of-Work (PoW) miners, stakeholders and the Decred Treasury, which funds the project. Proof of Work miners play a similar role for Decred as they do for Bitcoin, but with Decred they only receive 60% of the block reward. Proof of Stake voting is central to Decred’s governance. Decred holders can time-lock (or “stake”) DCR to obtain voting tickets. Tickets are randomly called to vote on-chain; this involves both approving the work of PoW miners and voting Yes/No on any open rule change proposals. 30% of the block reward goes to the holders of the tickets that voted in that block. The remaining 10% of the block reward goes into the Decred Treasury. Holders of live tickets decide how that treasury is used through Politeia proposals and voting. The Decred Constitution sets out some guiding principles for the project; the constitution is subject to amendment through Politeia proposals.
BTG is a cryptocurrency with Bitcoin fundamentals, mined on common GPUs instead of specialty ASICs. ASICs tend to monopolize mining to a few big players, but GPU mining means anyone can mine again - restoring decentralization and independence. GPU mining rewards go to individuals worldwide, instead of mostly to ASIC warehouse owners, recreating network effects that Bitcoin used to have. BTG enhances and extends the crypto space with a blockchain closely compatible with Bitcoin (with SegWit and Lightning Network) but without using resources like Bitcoin hashpower or vying for the "real Bitcoin" title. We're creating a welcoming space for new devs and new technologies building on a bitcoin base. As a Friendly Fork, we offer a coin as easy and familiar to implement as Bitcoin, but with plenty of space for new ideas. That's why we have a thriving economy and ecosystem. Bitcoin Gold is extended by Lighting Network, which scales to route nearly limitless payments per second. This is an example of a "second layer" solution living atop the main blockchain. Second layers and side chains enable technologies like smart contracts which can run at blazing speeds, secured by the underlying BTG mainchain.

0x is a protocol that facilitates the peer-to-peer exchange of Ethereum-based assets. The protocol serves as an open standard and common building block for any developer needing exchange functionality. 0x provides secure smart contracts that are externally audited; developer tools tailored to the 0x ecosystem; and open access to a pool of shared liquidity. Developers can integrate with 0x at the smart contract or application layer. 0x uses a digital signature to allow order makers to cryptographically commit to the 0x order they author. This allows the maker to rest assured that they cannot be tricked into filling any order except the ones they've authored. In turn, the potential counter-parties can verify that the maker did indeed author their 0x order(s). For a 0x order to be considered valid and fillable, it must have all the stipulated fields mentioned above and include a digital signature from the maker attesting to all the chosen field values. At this point, the 0x order is ready to be shared with potential counter-parties.
Kyber is an on-chain liquidity protocol that aggregates liquidity from a wide range of reserves, powering instant and secure token exchange in any decentralized application. Kyber Network is connecting the fragmented tokenized world by enabling instant and seamless transactions between platforms, ecosystems and other use cases. Kyber is a on-chain liquidity protocol that anyone can tap into for a wide variety of inter-token use cases. For example, vendors are able to accept payments in multiple tokens on their e-commerce platforms yet receiving in their preferred token. In addition, dApps can allow users who are not their token holders to utilize their platform and services with other tokens, and decentralized financial projects have the means to rebalance their portfolio instantly. Liquidity is in turn facilitated through an open reserve architecture that allows anyone to contribute their idle token assets to our decentralized central liquidity pool and earn from the spread in every transaction. These tokens become available for use across any platform that taps into the network, making them instantly more liquid and useful.

Throughout human history, people have been making transactions. Currency has evolved over the years in the form of shells, beads, jewellery, coins, and most recently, fiat money. Fiat money is what most people nowadays are used to. It offers significant benefits over its predecessor in terms of being relatively easy to transport and easily measurable. However, fiat money is not without its limitations — it can be subject to volatile inflation, particularly under the control of unstable governments; it can be inconvenient to use when traveling between countries; it can be counterfeited and it can be stolen relatively easily. Cryptocurrency solves these problems: it is based on a decentralized blockchain which keeps inflation under control by design; it can be easily accessed from any location; each transaction is verified by multiple computers around the world; and each wallet is guarded by a highly secure private key. By addressing head on the flaws of fiat money, cryptocurrency is emerging as the next phase in the evolution of money. Here is a simplified explanation of how a cryptocurrency transaction works. For example, Maria in Venezuela wants to purchase a cell phone case from Carlos in Colombia. Maria purchases some Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) from an exchange and transfers it to her digital wallet. From her wallet, she sends a BCD payment to Carlos’ wallet address. The transaction is verified by multiple computers around the world (known as miners) with a cryptographic signature. Once the transaction is confirmed, it is added as a new block to the BCD blockchain. With BCD, each transaction and wallet balance is kept fully anonymous. Almost instantly, the funds will appear in Carlos’ digital wallet and he delivers the cell phone case to Maria. Bitcoin Diamond uses blockchain and cryptocurrency technology to provide the world’s unbanked and underserved people with a currency they can access, trust, and use. We believe in a world where everyone has equal opportunity to build wealth. Yet there are 1.7 billion people who are repressed from owning a bank account. As a fast, secure digital currency, Bitcoin Diamond aims to free the trapped capital, intellect, and creativity of the world’s emerging population. With Bitcoin Diamond, you have access to a currency that is convenient and secure to use no matter where you live.
OmiseGO is building a decentralized exchange, liquidity provider mechanism, clearinghouse messaging network, and asset-backed blockchain gateway. OmiseGO is not owned by any single one party. Instead, it is an open distributed network of validators which enforce behavior of all participants. It uses the mechanism of a protocol token to create a proof-of-stake blockchain to enable enforcement of market activity amongst participants. This high-performant distributed network enforces exchange across asset classes, from . at-backed issuers to fully decentralized blockchain tokens (ERC-20 style and native cryptocurrencies). Unlike nearly all other decentralized exchange platforms, this allows for the decentralized exchange of other blockchains and between multiple blockchains directly without a trusted gateway token. Markets may be able to signi. cantly reduce spreads and encourage market assurance via decentralizing custody and increased transparency of market activity. This is achieved using smart contracts, protocol tokens enforcing correct market behavior of order book matching, a new construction of Ethereum bonded external enforcement of clearinghouse activity and commitments to historical exchange data for use with Ethereum smart contracts..
