Storj is an open source project that aims to offer a completely decentralized, secure and efficient cloud storage service, while also fulfilling the role of a peer-to-peer payment system, like Bitcoin.
Anyone can use Golem to rent their unused computing resources. Simultaneously Golem enables every user to buy computing time from other users to complete virtually any computationally-demanding task. Consequently, Golem creates the first global market for idle computing power. Golem is a decentralized, P2P network utilizing Ethereum and smart contracts as transaction system.
We believe in a decentralized, censorship-resistant, permissionless block chain. We believe in the original vision, of Ethereum as a world computer that you cannot shut down, which runs irreversible smart contracts. We believe in a strong separation of concerns, whereby system forks are to correct actual platform bugs or provide functionality upgrades, not to bail out failed smart contracts & associated special interest groups.
We believe in a platform that can actually be trusted -- by anyone.
Tezos is a new decentralized blockchain that governs itself by establishing a true digital commonwealth. It facilitates formal verification, a technique which mathematically proves the correctness of the code governing transactions and boosts the security of the most sensitive or financially weighted smart contracts.
Civic is creating a blockchain-based ecosystem where users retain complete control over their Personally Identifiable Information, in a way that is compatible with current regulations, and where financial institutions and other relevant parties can verify the ownership and authenticity of the information they receive. With approval from the User, they will be able to sell these validations to other parties to remove inefficiencies in the current IDV model.
