Utopia is a brand new decentralized network that enables you to Chat, send Text Messages, Emails, share files, host a wallet, earn through mining, perform financial transactions and much more while you stay anonymous and secure.

Utopia uses it’s own crypto currency, it’s called Crypton (CRP). Every Utopia’s user can mine, send and receive Cryptons through Utopia Main application. The mining itself would require you to leave Utopia application running, it would use some of your PC’s RAM.

Utopia just launched a beta version of it’s network. So I decided to test it out and i would say that i am impressed :). I would advice you to give it a try if you are interested in Decentralized Technology.

First you will have to sign-up through Utopia Website, download Utopia software for Windows, Linux or Mac (around 175 MB), install it, activate and run it.

Utopia application has a simple and an eye catchy user interface. The first time it launches it will open the official channel main chat where you can chat in channels or send private messages to Utopia users.

You also can use Utopia to send decentralized emails through Utopia uMail (Currently it only supports sending emails to Utopia users)

As for the wallet, as mentioned you can earn Crypton coin through RAM mining. I left Utopia application running for 30 minutes and i earned some Cryptons. Yay!.

When you request payment you will need to reveal your Public Key. yet, in Utopia you can recieve payment using an option called Crypto Card, but there is a small fees for it paid using Crypton.

You can allocate some RAM for mining, the more RAM the more mining threads the more rewards.

Again, i have enjoyed using Utopia, i will be leaving it running on my PC for a while so i can earn some Crypton. feel free to register using my referral link so i can earn some Crypton

Blockchain Industry Should Thank Facebook

During an interview held by Bloomberg Markets with Yuval Rooz, he said: This entire industry should thank Facebook for their effort.

He added: I think that those that were skeptic have gotten a wake-up call and that’s a good thing because at the end of the day this technology will happen and will shape the next generation of technology so from that perspective I think the industry owes a lot of thanks to Facebook.

Enjin (ENJ) , the blockchain gaming platform is now live on Ethereum Mainnet. Enjin project is a robust, all-in-one blockchain game development platform that helps developers crowdfund, grow, monetize, and design the digital world of their dreams.

To celebrate the public launch of the new Enjin Platform, Enjin will be giving away limited-edition collectibles, ENJ based gaming assets and 50,000 Enjin coins.

Enjin has its own marketplace EnjinX, where users can buy/trade any ERC-1155 assets to used in Enjin based games. The market is currently charging 2.5% trading fees.

Last year, Enjin announced a partnership with Samsung that integrated ENJ technology with Samsung Galaxy S10 models. This announcement sent the price skyrocketing and created a major media buzz for Enjin Coin (ENJ).

All assets/items created using Enjin’s development platform are backed by a nominal amount of Enjin Coin (ENJ) to certify their authenticity. The Enjin Coin ICO was held in 2017, raising approximately $22 million worth of ETH.

TEDx - A Blockchain-based decentralised university

Professor John Domingue, Director of the OU’s Knowledge Media Institute, discusses developments in technology at TedX

I believe that with blockchain technology we can create a radically new type of university: a DAO University. A DAO is a Decentralised Autonomous Organisation which operates with no central control and no humans in the loop and are based on Smart Contracts: pieces of computer code on a blockchain which can represent and enact financial and legal contracts.

In a DAO University value and reputation associated with teaching and learning would be accounted for through a blockchain with no central control. Instead the whole learning community would agree how the educational elements, for example, learning materials, teaching resources and teaching delivery are shared and recompensed.

A DAO University is a next step evolution in higher education. A born digital community owned educational institution for the 21st Century. Open University Professor. Director of the Knowledge Media Institute and President of STI International. Published over 270 articles in the areas of semantics, the Web, distributed ledgers and eLearning. Instrumental role in the EU-funded project, QualiChain, which aims to revolutionise public education and its relationship to policy making and the labour market.
