Idea: To enable artists, musicians, writers, and content creators of all kinds to easily sell content directly to their fans wherever they would normally share it.
This app will serve as a way for creators to sell their content in a decentralized manner quickly and with lower fees than the traditional avenues.
It works by allowing users of the app to upload their digital content and represent it with an object on the NEM blockchain. The app would then generate a unique URL users can share that would enable others to download the content after sending funds to a particular address. Once the funds have been sent, the app will automatically release the content to the purchaser. In this way, content creators, celebrities, and anyone else who wishes to sell digital content can leverage their thousands or millions of fans and followers directly without relying on a middleman who might require a lengthy approval process, charge high fees, or censor content.
We believe a decentralized solution for selling and distributing content will allow creators to focus on creating great content without having to worry about the logistics of sales, refunds, customer service, and distribution.
Idea: To improve the ease of use for the NEM project.
Sign in with Facebook to create or unlock your wallet, and send XEM to all your Facebook friends that have also created wallets.
The SoW is a light wallet hosted on a web-app. We will focus on a clean and intuitive user interface to ensure ease of use and safety. After setup and log-in, the user can send payments and payment requests using names instead of long and intimidating addresses. Facebook friends with SoW’s will be added automatically. Should the need arise, contacts/friends without Facebook accounts can be added manually.
To further simplify social payments, we aim to create a chatbot that can facilitate payments and payment requests by chat. After setup of your SoW, you can activate the chatbot and access your wallet anywhere you can access Facebook Messenger. To ensure that transactions are made by the wallet owner, a two-step verification process is required.
Facilitating payments with natural language in Messenger ensures easy and quick access to XEM funds. It will also help onboarding, as the Messenger interface is familiar, and easily accessible for most. Finally, by allowing more users to exchange XEM easily we get the added bonus of helping our users achieve higher importance ratings.
In summary, SoW is a tool that lets users quickly and simply set up their NEM wallet and start transacting. By using intuitive methods of payment through interfaces the users already are familiar with, we hope to reach a broad user base. We believe this is crucial for mass adoption of cryptocurrencies in general, and NEM in particular.
Idea: Provide whistle blowing information whilst staying fully anonymous.
This decentralised platform will allow people to provide tips and information directly to police or other body whilst remaining completely anonymous. If there are rewards available for their tip, these rewards can be sent to the informant’s address whilst still keeping their identity anonymous.
Idea: Reward and motivate people to sort the garbage and bring it to collection points or have collection crews throw garbage in their designated places where they can be recycled, donated or turned the scraps of garbage into an energy source.
TrashTalk are smart, solar-powered, sensor-equipped waste & recycling stations that can communicate real-time status to on-demand collection crews. When we talk about smart cities – we tend to forget about our garbage. The scraps of garbage should be seen as an asset to be recovered and returned to the market, recycled, donated, or turned into an energy source. At first, we can create a positive recycling culture by incentivized recycling with cryptocurrencies. A donor can recycle knowing that they did their part in environmental justice while at the same time accepting cryptocurrency. The reason for the blockchain is to look at the rate of consumption in real-time and have a more transparent footprint of where the garbage goes. The network will be accessible through an app for drivers as well as from management office to NGOs to be part of these sustainable initiatives.This network will help build a sustainable future for smart cities and smart communities while communities take the time to develop long-term plans for renewal energy source, while this solution will help reduce irresponsible garbage thrown everywhere.
