Shark Tank for crypto is here. 🐟
In my humble opinion...
it pays to pay attention.
To the people asking me for money to start trading the answer is straightforward; if I could wash dishes, so can you.
Enough with this zero effort generation bullshit ☝🏻

Coins of the DayHere are some projects making waves.
Entertainment rights management
(CRYPTO: SED) If you're from the UK, you've probably already heard of LiveTree – the socially responsible crowdfunding company that already has 5% of the film/content crowdfunding market – but you probably haven't heard of one of their newest projects, LiveTree ADEPT (Advanced Decentralised Entertainment Platform for Transparent distribution - a little long, but bear with us). The new project is a digital rights management platform that will help fund and distribute projects through LiveTree Blossom streaming video or a normal TV channel. LiveTree ADEPT helps build contracts for production teams, combines rewards, IP, shares of future sales, and streamlines the content viewing/owning process. Some of the projects look pretty compelling – just look at The Buy In, a tv show that can be loosely described as Shark Tank with live voting using crypto.
Safer keys through quantum generation
Quantum1Net has been getting some buzz recently, and for good reason. For those of you who don't know, quantum computers are able to solve calculations at a much faster rate than supercomputers, which has massive security implications. There's now even talk of quantum computers solving "otherwise invincible codes," which means online security is going to be much riskier for practically everyone. The project is building a quantum generated, key secured data transmission platform using quantum entanglement that will create keys that are incredibly challenging to hack (even for supercomputers). The first stage of their ICO is wrapping up, but there's still time to hop on the next two token sales. If you're interested in seeing some of the photos of their technology, check out their whitepaper.
Let's revisit... Efficient and effective advertising
(CRYPTO: CPX) The online advertising industry is highly inefficient and one-sided, where internet and media companies profit from sales of consumers’ personal data. Furthermore, the majority of netizens often don’t trust or even view online advertisements. The result is billions of dollars being lost in advertising annually.
vision is to build a trustworthy and consent-driven ecosystem that will decentralize the way business-to-consumer interactions occur. The team behind APEX believes in returning the power of data and identity back to consumers, where advertising middlemen will be eliminated. APEX was launched by Chinapex – a customer data technology and AI company which already tracks and analyzes 360 million consumer profiles annually. While the company is based out of China, it seems that the project is going full steam ahead and even
a few weeks ago.
Coins to Watch
DigixDAO (DGD) has been on a pretty significant upward trend. Look for the imminent dip, everyone. Plan accordingly.
Litecoin (LTC) has been a bit "drunk", the nonofficial term we use for a token that's gone a bit wild. Up 11%, it's certainly been getting a boost from its recent fork (check below for deets).
Soooo Litecoin forked and spawned Litecoin Cash (LCC) a few days ago. While the volume hasn't been that impressive, the internet can't stop talking about it – although not everyone's particularly interested.
Uzbekistan, your favorite central Asian country, is planning to pass a law regulating "electronic money," and is beginning to encourage crypto and blockchain development in the country. Progress!
Ravencoin (RVN) is the token that notorious Overstock.com CEO, Patrick Byrne, is making famous. The website and whitepaper is a bit spartan, but Byrne has apparently put millions into the project.
