Blockchain Startup and Greenpeace Partnership

Little Phil, a blockchain charity startup, announces Greenpeace as one of the beta partners

Little Phil seeks to restore public trust in giving to charities by building a transparent infrastructure for crowdfunding, philanthropy and charity. Little Phil combines a number of technologies such as a public ledger, smart contracts and unique digital identity to provide givers with Proof-of-Need and Proof-of-Impact. With Little Phil, people will be able to donate money on their terms and track their giving all the way to the moment it’s received, which creates an engaging and fulfilling experience.

On October 10, Josh Murchie, CEO and co-founder of Little Phil, published an article on Medium announcing that Greenpeace will be one of the first charities to be featured on the Little Phil platform. Among other beta partners are Helping Hands, FutureSense Foundation, The World’s Biggest Garage Sale, and Livin.

Murchie further gives a quick background on Greenpeace and mentions some of its current projects including creating a coal-free future, making renewable energy available for everyone, protecting forests and oceans, ending plastic at its source, and defending democracy.

Little Phil is proud to be partnered with a variety of progressive charities from across the globe that have the foresight to implement emergent technologies that will help them toward their goals of making the world a better place. As they have first hand experience with industry wide problems, they are pivotal in shaping the future of charitable giving by collaborating with us through our alpha and beta testing phases of the platform.

From Travel To AI: Five Leading dApps On The NEO Blockchain

Ethereum might be the most well-known dApp platform, but it’s far from the only place for smart contracts. The NEO blockchain is home to a whole dApp ecosystem of its own, and it’s thriving.  NEO’s “Smart Economy” debuted shortly after the public blockchain rebranded from Antshares in August of 2017. The Smart Economy concept combines digital assets, digital identity, and smart contracts through a distributed network for both public and private/enterprise projects. Community developer groups – such as City of Zion, NeoResearch, and NewEconoLabs – are providing the technical support and development tools to build decentralized applications on the blockchain. In coordination with NEO core developers, these groups have created many suites of tools to decrease friction and bring on new teams. Additionally, the NEO Virtual Machine (NeoVM) offers support for multiple programming languages. According to NEO documentation, “more than 90% of developers can directly participate in the development of an NEO smart contract without the need to learn a new language. ” Each of these companies launched their initial coin offerings (ICO) on NEO. In the time since, their teams have developed their products on the MainNet as an integral part of the stack. Bridge Protocol The Bridge Protocol offers Know Your Customer (KYC) and identify verification services. Users provide their personal identifying information (PII) and Bridge creates a “compliant identity” that’s tied to a public address. By partnering with entities that require KYC verification, Bridge shares only the user information that is necessary for compliance. To upload user information, the Bridge Chrome Extension was recently released to early adopters for user testing. Bridge envisions its project as particularly beneficial for “jumping from exchanges to retail with ease” without the need to maintain passwords for each portal. Bridge Protocol concluded its ICO on February 28th, 2018, and expects to release a browser extension to the public in Q1 of 2019. Travala Travala (formerly known as Concierge) is a global online travel booking marketplace that aims to be a one-stop shop for all travel-related services. Travala uses (AVA), a NEP-5 token, to purchase hotel rooms on its platform. Since then, the team has delivered an online portal with access to 550,000 international hotel accommodations and properties. Through a slew of new partnerships, Travala has been growing its offerings to meet a Q1 2019 quota of 1.5 million properties. Travala concluded its ICO on April 25th, 2018, and its beta platform is expected to launch in Q1 of 2019. Switcheo Switcheo Exchange is a decentralized exchange (DEX) that first launched on the NEO blockchain. It has since expanded, becoming “the first non-custodian exchange to support both NEO and Ethereum blockchains.” Currently, the DEX offers all NEP-5 tokens and more than 45 ERC-20 tokens. With a DEX, users trade directly from their cold wallet with no centralized log-in. That doesn’t appear to be a limiting factor for the Switcheo Exchange, which has since seen a trading volume peak of $3 million with over 25,000 traders since it launched in March. Looking forward, Switcheo will focus its efforts to fiat-based onboarding, cross-chain swaps, and adding Qtum to their list of supported blockchains. The Switcheo ICO concluded on March 17th, 2018, and the exchange went live on March 31st, 2018. Effect.AI Effect.AI aims to establish a decentralized network for artificial intelligence (AI) services. It will do this by creating a decentralized Mechanical Turk marketplace (Phase 1), a marketplace for AI services (Phase 2), and a distributed computational platform for deep learning frameworks (Phase 3). Currently, Effect.AI is operating a decentralized version of Amazon’s Mturk, dubbed Effect Force, which continues recruit new workers with over 2,000 active users as of November. Earlier this year, Effect.AI partnered with Quadrant to provide the Singapore Government with a workforce to manage image metadata for mapping purposes. The Effect.AI ICO ended on March 28th. In the immediate future, Effect.AI will pursue the expansion of users on its working product, Effect Force. nOS nOS is a virtual operating system that functions as a web browser and wallet. It’s a bit like the NEO version of the Brave Browser or EOS’ Lynx wallet, with a built-in NEP-5 wallet, dApp explorer and a profile tied to the user’s KYC settings. In the future, it will incorporate a dApp gateway (in the vein of Google Play or Apple Store) and the Neon Exchange DEX into its platform. In a press release accompanying the launch, nOS developers said they hoped to provide a “safer and easier” way to access decentralized applications. Of the 140 NEO dApps, roughly 60 are now connected to the blockchain through the nOS platform API. At the time of its ICO, which ended on November 8th, nOS already had a working product in its nOS Client v0.4.6. In the future, nOS users can expect the development of the dApp gateway, and the release of nOS client v1.0.   The author is invested in NEO, Switcheo, and Ethereum.   The post From Travel To AI: Five Leading dApps On The NEO Blockchain appeared first on Crypto Briefing.
