DECENT is a new decentralized content distribution platform that is open source and utilizes blockchain technology, ensuring trust and security. The project intends to obsolete third parties in the way content is delivered to consumers, eliminating censorship.
DECENT opening doors for creative people, authors, bloggers, publicists and their fans and followers it allows borderless publishing of any text, picture, video or music content. Intention of the project is to revolutionize Data Distribution on the Internet. DECENT is acting as a resourceful and independent unit. It allows information sharing without any boundaries or restriction.
DECENT want to create a fully integrated & trustworthy worldwide system of digital content distribution in which the communication flow is secured and timestamped by the blockchain mechanism.
DECENT’s mission is to become a liaison between various industries by bridging the gap between the emerging blockchain ecosystem. Through secure and trustworthy digital content sharing platform we provide a vertically integrated system for industries, organizations or businesses while we focus on flexibility & sustainable development. Infrastructure of linked systems enables to set more intelligent international standards of efficient, cost-effective & secure content distribution. The principles of DECENT, based on distributed trust machine – the blockchain, bring reliability to wide range of sectors & services in which privacy and security play the crucial role.
DECENT combines several functional layers. One layer takes care of distributed storage. We build on the results of the Tribler project, adding own extensions, such as the proof of retrievability, to provide highly scalable, anonymously distributed, guaranteed storage that automatically scales based on the content popularity.
The heart of the solution is, of course, the blockchain. We are designing and fine-tuning several processes and associated transactions for use cases – publishing content, buying content and providing feedback. We use a lot of underlying cryptography inside to make everything work, just naming decryption key sharing, various zero knowledge proofs, etc. The devil is in the details, so as we are still working on technicalities, for detailed description please wait for white paper.
Last but not least, the user experience would not be full without recommendations. Since all data are available in the blockchain, anybody can execute data mining to find the most suitable content. DECENT foundation plans to incorporate their own recommendation engine for their clients, but it is totally up to the users.
Use Cases and Incentives
The first and the most natural use case is content publishing. The user interface will be based on the industry best practices. Upon creating the content an author’s client will encrypt it, possibly adding free preview, and create a content package. This package is then anonymously shared with publishers/miners. These guys will be also given their encryption key shares.
The author’s wallet is debited the certain amount of tokens for publishing, which will be later distributed (based on the proof of retrievability) to the publishers for storing the content. This way the miners are incentivized to share their disk space with the community.
The second use case is buying the content. The consumer browses the available offers, e.g. based on recommendation engine suggestions, and can check the free preview. When he/she decides to buy it, he/she will also download the encrypted part, pay for it and retrieve the encryption keys via the blockchain. Technically this is the trickiest part where we use several interesting techniques to avoid frauds such as blockchain-based smart contracts with escrow and ZKP.
Last but not least, consumers can provide feedback to the author in the form of rating. This is also a blockchain-based transaction.
DECENT is currently looking for ambassadors who will help spread the word about the platform. For more information sign up to newsletter and find out more about how you can contribute to this project.

Namecoin is one of the first alternate cryptocurrencies based on bitcoin (sha-256) which offers additional features.
Namecoin = bitcoin + domain name services. Namecoin uses .bit domain name pool.
Always use the latest Namecoin client version from the official website to avoid issues.
Namecoin most important features
- Securely register and transfer arbitrary names (keys), no possible censorship!
- Attach values (data) to the names (currently up to 520 bytes, will be extended)
- Trade and transact namecoins, the digital currency NMC
- Name/value pairs are stored in the blockchain attached to coins
- Names are acquired through new transaction types – new, first-update and update
- Names expire after 12000 blocks unless renewed with an update
- No two unexpired names can be identical
Sample usages of Namecoin
- DNS: domain_name => domain_zone_configuration (also for i2p, Tor)
- TLS: https like encryption and secure identification by Namecoin domain/ID/name
- Alias/Identity: user_name => user_public_identity (email, name, gpg key, BTC-adress, etc)
- Timestamping: document_hash => document_infos (name, hash, owner, etc)
- Broadcasting / Messaging
- Web of trust
- Bonds, shares
- Torrent tracker
Total coins: 21 million Namecoins (the same as bitcoin). Each Namecoin is divisible down to 8 decimal places.
Namecoin currently uses the .bit domain. As of January 2014, 123616 .bit domains have been registered.

Bikercoin is an Anonymous, Secure and Untraceable digital cryptocurrency that operates on a community-based standard of value using peer-to-peer (P2P) networking as the means of conducting transactions. Rather than having a central authority determine the value of the currency, its worth is determined by the number of products and services people are willing to buy or sell using Bikercoins. Bikercoins have a global value, so they can be used in any country, at any time. Bikercoin is also open-source; its architecture is public, nobody owns or controls Bikercoin and anybody can take part.
Bikercoin is an Anonymous Cryptocurrency
Bikercoin is an Impregnable Cryptocurrency
Bikercoin is an Untraceable Cryptocurrency
Bikercoin (BIC) a decentralized digital money similar to Bitcoin, is based on CryptoNote anonymous technology.
The proof-of-work CryptoNight protocol is designed to make secure CPU and GPU mining equally efficient and restrict ASIC mining. Average user should use Bikercoin GUI Wallet.
Console/Simplewallet/Miner is for services, like mining pools and exchanges.
