State of the ÐApps
Directory platform for dApps in tag-categories such as: Finance, game, token, exchange, market, community, money, trading, p2p, gambling, transactions, social, metamask, security, development but also in more eco-centric tags like climate, energy, environment, sustainability.

About:
"State of the DApps is a not-for-profit curated directory of Decentralized Applications, also called DApps (pronounced D-Apps) on the Ethereum Blockchain. State of DApps was created to categorize and showcase developed projects built on the Ethereum Blockchain.

The inspiration for State of the DApps came from FreshMeat now known as FreeCode which was a site reference for Linux users, which had a big inventory of the open source applications, games and all sources for Linux.

In State of the DApps there are many projects covering different fields such as health, Ponzi schemes, games, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, education, registries, job markets, tinder for horses and many more.
[...]
State of the DApps is a privately funded and independent project [...] what makes us successful is our autonomy & objectivity."

DAO IPCI (Integral Platform for Climate Initiatives)
Seems like a government-initiated DAO to operate, sustain and developing carbon markets.

About:

"Decentralized Autonomous Organization operating, sustaining and developing the Integral Platform for Climate Initiatives, smart contracts and blockchain technology-based independent ecosystem designed for carbon markets, societal costs mitigation instruments, including carbon compliance units’, carbon-offset credits, other environmental mitigation credits, environmental assets, rights and liabilities.

DAO IPCI – truly decentralized public blockchain ecosystem is authentically private nonprofit project independent of government, corporate, business or NGO particular interests.

On May 24, 2016, the Russian Carbon Fund has officially unveiled the Integrated Program for Climate Initiatives.
[...]
designed to develop a distributed network of mitigation contributors based on common principles, rules and criteria, as well as provide an accounting platform, which can achieve absolute emission reduction targets in compliance with quantitative emission limitation commitments. The goal is to integrate corporate and regional mitigation initiatives.

The Integrated Program for Climate Initiatives derives from ongoing subnational and corporate climate initiatives and aims at providing for common investment instruments, which are based on climate change mitigation outcomes including high quality carbon offset credits.

The Integrated Program for Climate Initiatives has served as DAO IPCI genesis program."

Open-iSCSI
About:
"High-performance, transport independent, implementation of RFC 3720 iSCSI for Linux.

Open-iSCSI is partitioned into user and kernel parts.

The kernel portion of Open-iSCSI is maintained as part of the Linux kernel and is licensed under the GPL version 2. The kernel part implements iSCSI data path (that is, iSCSI Read and iSCSI Write), and consists of several loadable kernel modules and drivers.

The Open-ISCSI user space is maintained on the projects GitHub account. User space contains the entire control plane: configuration manager, iSCSI Discovery, Login and Logout processing, connection-level error processing, Nop-In and Nop-Out handling, etc.

The Open-iSCSI user space consists of a daemon process called iscsid, and a management utility iscsiadm."

Tested with AMD Opteron and Intel Xeon, not yet ARM.

Example of Open-iSCSI implementation:

- Synology NAS acts as target > https://www.synology.com/en-us/knowledgebase/DSM/tutorial/Virtualization/How_to_set_up_and_use_iSCSI_target_on_Linux

- Debian desktop as initiator > https://wiki.debian.org/SAN/iSCSI/open-iscsi

LizardFS
About:
"LizardFS Software Defined Storage is a distributed, scalable, fault-tolerant and highly available file system. It allows users to combine disk space located on several servers into a single name space which is visible on Unix-like and Windows systems in the same way as other file systems. LizardFS makes files secure by keeping all the data in many replicas spread over all available servers. It can be used also to build an affordable storage, because it runs without any problems on commodity hardware.

Disk and server failures are handled transparently, without any downtime or loss of data. If storage requirements grow, it’s possible to scale an existing LizardFS installation just by adding new servers – at any time, without any downtime. The system will automatically move data across to the newly added servers, as it continuously takes care of balancing disk usage across all connected nodes. Removing a server is just as simple and easy as adding a new one.

Unique features:

support for multiple datacenters and media types,
fast snapshots,
transparent trash bin,
QoS mechanisms,
quotas and a comprehensive set of monitoring tools make it suitable for a range of enterprise-class applications.

Use cases:

archive – with LTO Library/Drive support
storage for virtual machines (as an OpenStack backend or similar)
storage for media/CCTV etc
storage for render farms
storage for backups
repositories
as a network share drive for Windows™ servers
DRC (Disaster Recovery Center)
HPC (High Performance Computing)"

MaidSafe - The New Decentralized Internet, the World's First Autonomous Data Network
About:
"Blockchain based storage solutions that store a data identifier (e.g. hash) in a blockchain, but store the data 'somewhere else' do not improve the security of our data. That 'somewhere else' still needs to be secured, and if this data can be deleted, or our access denied these 'solutions' are not fit for purpose. The SAFE Network removes people from the management of our information to protect the world's data.

The SAFE network is autonomous and decentralised. It is not a set of federated servers, or owned storage locations, or identifiable nodes, nor does it contain a blockchain.

Lowest possible price through a perfect market. No humans setting prices for network services, the network continually adjusts and sets prices at the lowest possible costs based on available resources and user demand.

The currency is the data. The SAFE Network's currency is data and is secured on SAFE like all forms of data. In essence, the network is the ledger, but here that ledger is private and integrated, not an add-on.

The ultimate smart contract. SAFE stores and protects all data within a network that has been designed for this specific task, and Farmers are paid for their excess resource that comprise the network. The network calculates the costs of services (such as storage, communications and in time computation) providing it to the user at the lowest possible cost. You should think of this as the ultimate smart contract.

Safecoin. The mechanism that incentivises the provision of resources by the network, measuring and rewarding value without wasting any resources (no proof of work)."

IOTA - The Machine Economy
Kind of blockchain for IoT (yet without the blockchain!).

About:
"IOTA is an open-source distributed ledger protocol launched in 2015 that goes 'beyond blockchain' through its core invention of the blockless ‘Tangle’. The IOTA Tangle is a quantum-resistant Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG), whose digital currency 'iota' has a fixed money supply with zero inflationary cost.

IOTA uniquely offers zero-fee transactions & no fixed limit on how many transactions can be confirmed per second. Scaling limitations have been removed, since throughput grows in conjunction with activity; the more activity, the more transactions can be processed & the faster the network. Further, unlike blockchain architecture, IOTA has no separation between users and validators (miners / stakers); rather, validation is an intrinsic property of using the ledger, thus avoiding centralization.

IOTA is focused on being useful for the emerging machine-to-machine (m2m) economy of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), data integrity, micro-/nano- payments, and other applications where a scalable decentralized system is warranted."

The Story of CSS Grid, from Its Creators
As last of the big browsers has Microsoft Edge just introduced support for CSS Grid, this only half a year after the standard has been approved by W3C. The article describes the almost 20 years long history of origins and exemplifies its benefits. One can guess advantages in using pure CSS grid (with e.g. Vanilla CSS) over Flexbox framework or preprocessors such as SASS, LESS, Bootstrap or Stylus.

Colony: A platform for open organizations
About:
"Colony is building tools for a more open, collaborative, decentralized future of work. This includes an open protocol for coordinating the economic activity of a network of users, a GUI for starting and contributing to Colonies, and a library to add the Colony protocol to any application or organization.
[...]
In a typical organization, the rules for decision-making, compensation, ownership, and seniority exist in documents. Colony encodes those rules in smart contracts deployed on the Ethereum Blockchain. This approach to work is:

1. Trustless. The Ethereum Blockchain enforces the rules of an organization. Members can’t break the rules or change them arbitrarily at the expense of other members.
2. Open. Strangers can collaborate on a colony without formal hiring processes, contracts, or fear of being cheated. Participation is open and fluid.
3. Meritocratic. In this trustless, open system, members earn payment or ownership commensurate with their contributions to the colony.
4. Networked. Anyone can take on work in the Colony Network and be rewarded for quality output.

Put simply, Colony is infrastructure for “open organizations”: self-organizing teams that run via software, not paperwork."

An alternative solution (yet also based on Ethereum) comes from Aragon (www.aragon.one).

Ethereum for Everyone (Ethereum Public Blockchain; ETH not ETC)
Self-introductory post of Ethereum's blockchain-based platform and its ecosystems.

Excerpts:
"Ethereum’s public blockchain has been specifically designed to be a decentralized application platform. This means that Ethereum can run apps that are similar to apps you might find on a computer or smartphone, but in a way that shares the blockchains unique ledger-like features. This means apps that can be decentralized, potentially owned by no company and no country, and yet globally accessible, secure, transparent, as well as many more incredible characteristics.
[...]
This is the building of a new economy, a "world computer", allowing a myriad of decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO).
[...]
It should not be frightening to people or governments, but in a way that should be thought of as innovative, streamlined, better, with exciting opportunities for business growth and information security, including a country’s most precious information. This is a technology that reflects a rising tide that lifts all boats.
[...]
It seems clear now that Ethereum is becoming a technological standard for a combined industry that will soon be worth trillions.
[...]
Examples of ecosystems growing out of Ethereum public blockchain:
- Mega uber supercomputing
- Fight counterfeiting
- Self-organizing company
- Network and secure intellectual property (uncencorable)
- Superior prediction
- Super auditing (records cannot be altered)
- Digitized perks and asset value (compatible with IoT and tokenize markets such as fiat currencies, premium memberships or gold)
- Fair bets (e.g. contract-based casino)
- Better loans and credit (P2P without middleman, global scope)
- Video game economy
- Banks and charity (e.g. United Nations funds for aid)
- Mobile text/payment/browsing (open global financing system)
- Asset management and investing (The complex economy emerging around Ethereum's ERC tokens may make it difficult to decide with which to invest, hold, secure, etc. Expert digital asset management are emerging to assist, creating services such as “index” funds to help)
- Empowering creators (ownership and control by the content creators, while at the same time novel, cost effective, ways for content creators to reach agreements with producers, directors, actors, crew and be able to define royalty and rights management in a way that is transparent and fair)
- Open world knowledge base (e.g. Wikipedia more accurate, uncensored, decentralized, and more detailed, by rewarding strong contributions and peer review.)
- Matchmaking (e.g. global job market or dating)
- Ad tokens (e.g. Brave web browser basic attention token)
- Internet of Things (share anything and be compensated)
[...]
Most other blockchains, such as Bitcoin (despite RSK Rootstock add-on), Dash, Monero, Litecoin, Ripple, are not Smart contract platforms, and therefore, are not competitors for such a market."

Blockchain Investment Trends In Review
Abstract:
"The total market capitalization of cryptocurrencies hovers around $150B, Walmart and Pfizer have completed successful blockchain pilots in food safety and medicine tracking, and initial coin offerings (ICOs) have exploded in popularity, closing on $2B+ in funding in 2017 alone.

Politically, blockchain technology has fostered a renewed examination of today’s highly centralized web, and reignited conversations around currency and value, digital governance, and the fundamental structures and rails of our modern internet.

But how did we get here?

This report will explore how various forces have shaped the current blockchain landscape. Specifically, we’ll take a data-driven look at venture, corporate, and initial coin offering investment trends, and offer some insights into blockchain’s immediate future."
