Espers ESP

Espers is CryptoCoderz first coin to create, for a while CryptoCoderz has focused on only taking over dead projects and breathing new life into them. Until we realized the functionalities we want to add are too intensive for basic Blockchains. Thus we arrived to a single conclusion, if current technology isn't strong enough, let's make something that is. Then Espers was born; using HMQ1725 Espers is a first of its kind. With a customized algorithm we are now able to test the implementations of various ideas such as a Secure Emailing software. Espers had a premine of 25% with a 5% development fund and a 20% Reverse-ICO Giveaway that anybody could've participated in for free.

Ethereum ETH

Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference.

These apps run on a custom built blockchain, an enormously powerful shared global infrastructure that can move value around and represent the ownership of property. This enables developers to create markets, store registries of debts or promises, move funds in accordance with instructions given long in the past (like a will or a futures contract) and many other things that have not been invented yet, all without a middle man or counterparty risk.

Horizon HZ

Originally known as Next Horizon or NHZ, Horizon was the first first clone of NXT, a new generation digital currency platform which offers some major advantages over bitcoin technology.

Unlike most digital currencies where a few early adopters can effectively control the market, Horizon was created with a distribution system that is based on merit. This includes daily payments to people that help with node distribution and also substantially payments to those that help Horizon grow whether that's by helping our tech team or simply spreading the word.

This means that the distribution is fair, ongoing and beneficial.

Over months of hard work, ruthless competition, and challenges, Next Horizon (NHZ) was rebranded to Horizon (HZ), with new artwork, website, forums, logos, wallet, all reworked from the ground up as new talent joined that could make it stronger and better, with a professional level of quality and artwork. Many unique assets have also started up under Horizon using the decentralized asset exchange, and many more are on the way, which is totally unique for such a low marketcap platform.

Kobocoin KOBO

Kobocoin is a digital currency and payment system similar to Bitcoin, with an African heritage. All nodes verify transactions in a public distributed ledger called the blockchain. The ledger uses its own unit of account, also called kobocoin(s).

The kobocoin blockchain is distributed, to independently verify the chain of ownership of each and every kobocoin amount. The wallet on your device is a node. It works to maintain the security and integrity of the blockchain along with all other nodes. There is no central database. This is the decentralized nature of the Kobocoin ecosystem.

In the Kobocoin ecosystem every person who holds a funded wallet (or a funded kobocoin address to be more precise) becomes a stakeholder. This entitles them to freshly minted kobocoins as a reward for helping maintain the integrity of the blockchain (10% per annum credited daily). Stakeholders are rewarded with freshly minted kobocoins until the full allocation is in circulation. From then on, all rewards will be based on the transaction fees generated within the ecosystem.

Monero XMR

Monero is a secure, private, untraceable currency. It is open-source and freely available to all.

Using the power of a distributed peer-to-peer consensus network, every transaction is cryptographically secured. Individual accounts have a 25 word mnemonic seed displayed when created, which can be written down to back up the account. Account files are encrypted with a passphrase to ensure they are worthless if stolen.

Monero uses a cryptographically sound system that allows you to send and receive funds without your transactions being publicly visible on the blockchain (the distributed ledger of transactions). This ensures that your purchases, receipts, and other transfers remain private by default.

By taking advantage of ring signatures, a special property of certain types of cryptography, Monero enables untraceable transactions. This means it's ambiguous which funds have been spent, and thus extremely unlikely that a transaction could be linked to particular user.

NEM XEM

NEM is not just a crypto currency. Above that, and more importantly, NEM is a peer to peer platform and it provides services like payments, messaging, asset making, and naming system. There shall be a lot more to come as NEM shall be an evolving solution.

Bitcoin is a crypto currency and so are most crypto coins. Some are application specific while some are purely crypto coins. Apart from NEM being another crypto currency, NEM is a solution platform. There is more to offer as a platform. As a crypto currency, it does not require a lot of computing power and energy to run a node. NEM also advocates low entry barrier with Proof of Importance (POI) instead of the traditional ones that require a lot of stakes or computing power to mine. In NEM we call it harvesting. In addition, it also uses another solution, called Eigentrust ++ to validate and sieve out bad actors in the network. As an evolving solution, NEM is setting the stage for better things to come.

Ripple XRP

Ripple specializes in infrastructure technology that brings real-time speed and complete certainty to global financial settlement. Ripple's distributed approach and global network lowers the total cost of settlement for every transaction

Cross-border payment networks today are fragmented and siloed, resulting in non-competitive forex costs, lengthy settlement times, and a poor customer experience.Cross-border payments have to be routed through a series of correspondent banking relationships across a diverse set of messaging and settlement protocols. These inefficiencies in the system result in a total cost of $1.6T per year for all participants in the ecosystem - including payment originators, banks and market makers.

Ripple bridges these siloed networks with a common global infrastructure that brings new efficiency to financial settlement by enabling real-time settlement, improving visibility and reducing settlement risk. It enables institutions to differentiate their cross-border payment services while lowering transaction costs for their customers. It is designed specifically to meet the needs of financial institutions by fitting within their existing risk, compliance, and information security frameworks.

UFOcoin UFO

Ufocoin was originally launched in January 2014, and has been completely revamped on July 2nd 2015. Ufocoin’s algorithm has changed from Scrypt to NeoScrypt, which is an improved version of Scrypt created by the Feathercoin / Phoenixcoin development team. NeoScrypt is 30% more energy efficient than Scrypt, and ASIC resistant. ASICs have taken over Scrypt mining, making it unprofitable for GPU/CPU miners to Scrypt. NeoScrypt today allow GPU/CPU miners to profitably mine Ufocoin again, which should make Ufocoin more popular. NeoScrypt is somewhat similar to X11, in the sense that X11 makes mining more profitable for GPU/CPU miners and is more energy efficient. X11 has become extremely popular this year following the release of Scrypt ASICs, since all the GPU/CPU miners are flocking to X11.

Waves WAVES

WAVES is a decentralized platform that uses custom blockchain tokens to represent value. Tokens can be issued by any platform user,and can be transferred, swapped, and traded on an integrated decentralized exchange. Tokens may represent a share in a crowdfunding project, financial instrument, or any other item with inherent value. Traditional centralized crowdfunding and trading platforms rely on a third party to maintain the platform, thus sacrificing transparency and becoming prone to failures due to over-centralization. Blockchain technology allows the elimination of any centralized point of failure, storing all the platform data on all system nodes in a distributed fashion. It makes fully decentralized trading, crowdfunding and value transfer possible.
