Completely uninformed and casual hot-takes from a designer’s perspective on new crypto companies and upcoming ICO’s. This is very non-technical and definitely isn’t investment advice.

DADI is competing with the big boys to decentralize the entire internet

January 19, 2018

DADI is one of those tokens I’m really bullish on at the moment. Their site and branding is so good for a crypto startup, and I’m a massive fan of the fact that their technology is currently being used RIGHT NOW, on the internet, by some legit companies. I’m still not entirely across the token model, but it basically looks like they’ve built a bunch of web services (an API Layer, a CMS?, a CDN + more) and they’re looking to power all of these services through a decentralized network of miners. They’re going into an extremely tough market, currently owned by Amazon and Google – so they’ve got a lot of work ahead of them. Their ICO is happening EXTREMELY SOON, so if you’re keen – jump in right now and start the verification process.

Let’s hope the token ticker is #DADDY.

$pankChain is Crypto for Digital Perverts

January 11, 2018

Porn is a part of every day life and anyone that says they don’t watch it is a fucking liar. It’s always at the forefront of technology, adopting new processes before the mainstream. PornHub integrated VR content into their platform like it aint no thing, and they’re even trying to film porn in space ffs. It only makes sense that we should have a token for Porn. SpankChain seems like a joke, but it’s a serious project with great applications. 

Due to the nature of their work, PayPal, Stripe and all the other big financial institutions treat pornstars and sex workers like garbage, so they’re forced to use dodgy grey market card processing sites that take a 50 PERCENT CUT on all transactions. SpankChain is changing that by decentralizing it all. Opening up payment processing for anyone, no matter what the hell you do for it.

On top of this, they’re also creating a decentralized live cam site, similar to Chaturbate – where models and performers can earn crypto.

Their site also has some hella nice illustrations.


Offset your eco-guilt with WePower

January 11, 2018

A bunch of FUD was spreading around the Twittersphere late last year about how Bitcoin was using a week’s worth of energy to process just one transaction. Obviously that’s bad for the environment — but has anyone ever audited how much electricity the fiat economy consumes? lel.

That aside, if you’re still feeling a lil guilty – WePower has a new ICO on the way aiming to create a new system for trading green energy via the Blockchain, and it looks SICK. Some of you might be aware of PowerLedger, from what I can see it looks like a direct competitor. WePower’s design has got it goin on though. What really got my juices goin is that WePower had quite a lengthy process to sign up for the ICO. You had to Whitelist your ETH address, and also verify your identity. This is a little annoying, but it shows the team are dedicated to making sure every component of their company is compliant!

Metal Pay is $napCa$h for Crypto

January 11, 2018

Well at least that’s how I see it. From my research, Metal Pay started out as a new alternative to Bitcoin that focussed on P2P payments. It used to look pretty boring (i.e shit) but it seems they’ve hired a Designer / iOS Engineer gun to spruce things up. They’ve posted some teasers for their new app and it is honestly the nicest looking UI I’ve seen in crypto. You can grab a sneak peek of the new UI and features here.

Metal seem to be positioning themselves as a direct competitor to things like Venmo, Apple Cash, Snapcash and all those other mobile payment things people use. The real sugar behind the project is their authentication method, “PoPP” - Proof of Processed Payments. I still don’t know how it works exactly, but every time you send money to someone you get 5% cashback in the form of MTL??
