Blockchain: The Future of Connectivity

Brian Nibley

1. Dirt Protocol


The DIRT Protocol’s stated mission is to “organize the world’s information and to make it freely accessible.” This is a big deal because data is the currency of the 21st century and DIRT can make it more accurate, fair, uncensored, and accessible via blockchain.

2. Oasis Labs


Oasis Labs is creating smart contracts at scale for unprecedented privacy and security. The significance of a privacy-first cloud computing platform on blockchain is pretty self-explanatory.  

3. Coda


The Coda protocol aims to keep cryptocurrency decentralized. The entire blockchain of Coda is compressed down to the size of a few Tweets. Even smartphones can verify the Coda blockchain. This is huge because it will allow Coda to scale almost infinitely, to millions of users and many thousands of transactions per second.

4. Spacemesh


Spacemesh is designed to run smart contracts at scale. It’s powered by a new consensus protocol that doesn’t involve proof of work. In essence, Spacemesh intends to create a decentralized peer-to-peer blockchain supercomputer formed by individuals around the world running Spacemesh on their desktop PCs. This kind of system will allow for smart contracts to be more inclusive, eliminating the need for advanced mining hardware like ASICs or GPUs.

5. Keep Network


Keep Network keeps its network secure. Keep Network smart contracts can keep data private and be activated to expose it when needed. These contracts can even be used to create a secure digital marketplace or create cross-chain crypto wallets. Need we say more?
