Zilliqa (ZIL): The Sharding Blockchain
Zilliqa is perhaps best known for being one of the first blockchain solutions that has implemented sharding technology. This is seen being touted as one of the best solutions for blockchains to scale. For example, in theory there is no limit on the number of transactions per second that Zilliqa can process. Technically, Zilliqa also wants to be able to issue smart contracts on the platform although this can be difficult to do with a sharding blockchain. Zilliqa completed a private ICO in late 2017 and had public offering in early 2018 where they managed to raise $22m. They have issued their ZIL tokens (ERC20) and raised their token sale on the Ethereum blockchain. Zilliqa uses a hybrid consensus mechanism that combines proof of work (PoW) as well as Byzantine fault tolerance. The developer team has also created a new functional programming language called "Scilla" which will make the programming more secure and standardised. There is a healthy volume for ZIL tokens and total volume to outstanding supply is reasonable. Prices are however quite volatile as compared to other mid tier altcoins.

0x Protocol: A Open Source Project Developing a Decentralised Exchange Protocol
0x is a project that is developing a decentralised exchange protocol. This will be used to trade a range of different ERC20 tokens. They have developed an API where any developer can create their own applications to interact with its interface. There are a number of benefits that are being touted for a decentralized exchanges. These include such factors as added security as well as lower fees and more trust.They also want to allow this transaction to take place off of the main blockchain such that there is no impact on the speed of the network. The project is being built by a team out in California and is being led by two co-founders, Amir Bandeali and Will Warren. It completed an ICO in August of 2017 and was able to raise about $24m in Ethereum. It has received backing from a number of large names in the ecosystem including Polychain capital and Pantera capital.
NEOGAS Rating Report
NEO is committed to building a distributed network “smart economy”, empowering P2P networking and digital certificates. GAS is its native token, used as transaction fees within the NEO ecosystem. The project has been running for years and is currently supported by a large global developer community. However, the popularity of NEObased DApps remains low. Additionally, its Consensus Nodes are quite centralized, which can be problematic in the future.

Protocol for supply chains based on blockchain
Blockchain technology has huge potential to decentralize trust in supply chains and bring measurable benefits and value to the public and private sectors. To unlock this potential, the OriginTrail protocol was designed purposefully to tackle the main challenges which limit the fluent exchange of, and integrity of data in product supply chains. With supply chain data becoming increasingly fragmented, scalability and cost concerns of current decentralized solutions become evident. OriginTrail is a unique solution allowing IT providers in supply chains to set up blockchain supported data sharing in multi-organizational environment. It helps them build transparency beyond the “one step down, one step up” traceability principle. Furthermore, it improves the integrity of product data and drives efficiencies for stakeholders. The first version of the OriginTrail solution is proven and currently deployed in the food industry. The upcoming open source version will be suitable to any product supply chain such as automotive, consumer goods, pharmaceutical etc.
ChainkLink (LINK): Smart Contract Oracle Solutions
Chainlink is a project that is developing smart contract solutions that will allow blockchains to connect to external data providers. You can think of it as a sort of decentralised Oracle solution. There are two primary components in the ChainLink architecture – an on-chain infrastructure and an off-chain infrastructure. On-chain functions are oracles which are created to process user data requests. The Off-chain components are oracle nodes that exist off of the chain but are connected to the Ethereum blockchain. Chainlink is also notable for its difference from other oracle protocols. Their oracle distribution is decentralised which helps from a security perspective. These off-chain nodes are rewarded for completing requests by receiving compensation. This compensation is in the form of the Native token on the ChainLink ecosystem, LINK. These are ERC20 standard tokens. Chainlink uses a simple consensus protocol that relies on threshold signatures. Chainlink issued these tokens in an ICO that took place in September of 2017. They were able to raise a total of $32m in exchange for 35% of the total LINK token supply of 1bn LINK. Not long after the ICO, LINK tokens hit the exchanges. They have been generally less volatile than similar sized altcoins. There are good levels of liquidity for LINK tokens across a range of exchanges.

Blockchain-platform to counter counterfeit goods
Devery.io is developing the Devery Protocol, a decentralized verification platform that enables marking and tracking over the Ethereum network. The protocol allows manufacturers, brands, retailers and any other party to assign unique signatures to any products, services or digital goods sold, issued and traded online. The unique signatures are stored on the Ethereum network and can be queried to determine contextual data (including location, date, manufacturer/point-of-origin and the identification of the verifying party). Verification is not limited to the sale of physical goods and services, and can be extended to verifying the authenticity and legitimacy of any digital goods and services (such as certificates and courses).

Decentralized platform enabling data searches on blockchains
Nebulas aims to address three challenges: measure of value, self-evolving capability, and healthy ecosystem development. The framework includes: - Nebulas Rank (NR), which measures value by considering liquidity and propagation of the address. - Nebulas Force (NF), which supports upgrading core protocols and smart contracts on the chains. - Developer Incentive Protocol (DIP), designed to build the blockchain ecosystem in a better way. - Proof of Devotion (PoD) Consensus Algorithm. To build a healthy ecosystem, Nebulas proposes three key points for consensus algorithm: speediness, irreversibility and fairness. By adopting the advantages of PoS and PoI, and leveraging NR, PoD will take the lead in consensus algorithms. - Search engine for decentralized applications.
Chain of intelligent bots leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning
NeuroChain project has started after a long reflection about the potential of Blockchain technology and the limits of actual existing Blockchains. This reflection is materialized by a first book edited in 2016, thanks to the help and dedication of the “ENI Editions”. This was the first result of the intertwined reflection about the Blockchain technology, its current state (Bitcoin and Ethereum), limits but above anything else its amazing potential. The proposed project is a combination of different converging quantitative disciplines, particle physics, Machine Learning, distributed algorithmic and decision processes. Particle physics vision allowed a fitting description of intrinsic network characteristics. Machine Learning algorithms enhanced the analytical capabilities of the nodes ( Bots). High performance consensus created by thermodynamic parameters, ingeniously distributed, could face the challenges of transaction volume and real time (speed). Quantitative finance allowed to consider a fairer distribution mechanism. This balanced aggregation of the different disciplines leads to the emergence of smart distributed system. NeuroChain was born.
