Dear LEOcoin users,

the UPGRADE has now started.

If you hold all of your LEOcoin on external exchanges like Livecoin, DABTC or LEOxChange, then you do not need to do anything. Your LEOcoin will be automatically upgraded.

If you hold any LEOcoin on an external desktop wallet or a mobile wallet, you need to download the new LEOcoin wallet. This new wallet is available for download at LEOcoin.org. Once you have a new wallet, you need to go to http://upgrade.leocoin.org/ and swap your old LEOcoin for new LEOcoin. You must complete this process by 21 July 2017. If you are finding this process difficult then simply load your LEOcoin onto an exchange that you trust, like LEOxChange or DABTC or Livecoin, and your coins will be Upgraded during that process. There are also guides available on LEOCoin.org.

For information about the Upgraded LEOcoin visit here:

The Upgraded public blockchain is here: http://insight.leocoin.org/

The Wallets are available here: http://www.leocoin.org/

You can see more updates on the LEOcoin Facebook page and other social media channels.

In the course of the coming weeks, we will gradually update the data in the first post on this thread.

DNotes Global, Inc. is focused on Bringing DNotes Digital Currency Mainstream with a Platform and Ecosystem that will give it Intrinsic Value just as Cash

If you?ve ever wondered how digital currency can ever really hope to achieve its promise of providing real financial empowerment to the people of the world through true democratization of money, you?re not alone. Most crypto-skeptics and even some enthusiasts have long wondered how decentralized currencies can ever manage to meet that goal. In a recent [interview](http://www.ceocfointerviews.com/interviews/DNotesGlobal17.htm) with CEOCFO Magazine published on Monday, DNotes Founder Alan Yong offers his take on the problems confronting Bitcoin and most other digital currencies, as well as his ideas about how DNotes can meet those challenges.

The interview provides an insightful look at the current state of digital currency, and deals with some hard truths that often go unaddressed by the cryptocurrency community at large. Mr. Yong notes that neither Bitcoin nor any of its rivals currently have what he refers to as ?intrinsic value.? Instead, he suggests that much of their perceived value is based almost entirely on speculation. With just one question, he clearly identifies the real challenge facing all cryptocurrencies: ?how do you get to a point where your currency has any kind of intrinsic value??

It's clear from the interview that Mr. Yong has given that question a great deal of thought, and considers the answer to be of paramount importance for any digital currency that truly wants to change the world. It?s equally clear that he is committed to helping bring that change, as he discusses the potential benefit for the world?s citizens:

   
Quote
?The truly exciting thing is that the ability for people to engage in asset transactions without going through third-party middlemen or central authorities can literally transform life in many parts of the world. There are some 2.2 billion people who are currently unserved or underserved by financial institutions. Digital currency systems can give them greater access to financial empowerment ? and all they need is a simple device and an Internet connection.?

Having identified digital currency' current challenges and the global problems that need to be solved, Yong spends much of the remainder of the interview addressing the DNotes solution. As he describes it, that solution involves a long-term strategy that provides effective leadership to advance DNotes? interests as a viable currency, protect its stakeholders, and develop its intrinsic value.

Of course, there?s much more to that strategy, but there?s no better person to convey that message than Alan Yong himself. Fortunately, the entire interview is now available online, and you can read it at http://www.ceocfointerviews.com/interviews/DNotesGlobal17.htm.

Where we've been:
Amazon is 22 years old, eBay is 21. The online services we use are increasingly demanding more of our personal data, a disturbing trend. Corporate entities such as Google and Facebook have grown to extraordinary sizes solely by monetizing on user data. These entities are charged with keeping said data secure and, in the case of social and economic interactions, safeguarding the privacy. This approach of centralized security models is not applicable to the new generation of technologies such as Bitcoin.

Where we're going:
Satoshi Nakamoto had initially created a marketplace which was included in the official Bitcoin codebase but was stripped out later on. The concept of a decentralized marketplace in itself is not novel, there have been a small set of academic constructions and even serious attempts at creating them. (OpenBazaar, BitMarkets, Beaver, DropZone) They either propose solutions that scale extremely well and neglect the privacy implications, or they propose very privacy conscious solutions that do not scale well. Privacy and efficiency are often at odds with each other.

[align=center]"to hide the signal you must generate noise". -Ido Kaiser[/align]

Tor exemplifies this well, the traffic is pushed through various nodes with several layers of encryption before arriving at its destination, it is deliberately inefficient but the privacy provided by the trade off is well worth it. And then there's governance and how do you attach a self-governance mechanism on a decentralized network? The issue of governance on decentralized models is already starting to become a hot button for blockchain platforms.


How we get there:
Particl is an open source, decentralized privacy platform built for global person to person eCommerce. The native marketplace, currency tokens and suite of encrypted communication tools offer unfettered access between buyers and sellers worldwide or just down the street.

You can buy or sell anything, similar to eBay, Etsy or Amazon, except that all the transaction data, payments and conversations happen over a self-governed, distributed network instead of a central server. Think of it as going to a local market to buy something you need, from the person who is actually selling it, without a third person's permission, "service" or fee required for the sale to happen.

PART is the native 2-token currency in Particl. Users have a choice when sending money on the distributed ledger. Pseudo-anonymous transactions use a public token and truly-anonymous transactions use a private token.

Particl will be currency agnostic, meaning it will support the use of many cryptocurrencies with the intent of being an inclusive platform. A decentralized privacy platform focused on free markets cannot be limited by its own built-in token system. Our goal is to lower barriers of entry and reduce friction in online shopping, allowing for easier adoption by buyers and vendors anywhere in the world.

The very nature of a free-market built on a distributed network immediately brings up the question of governance. To get right to the point, Particl is being built with protection to ensure the market does not become an ultimate version of silk road. Our main focus is researching self-governance models that can be adapted to a decentralized network. The self-governance model for Particl will have two components to it:

* Platform Governance. Protection against illegal goods. "How do we protect the platform?"
* Privacy Governance. Providing user privacy. "How do we protect the users?"

What technology is Particl built with?
Particl is based on the latest and market-leading Bitcoin codebase. We are currently adding the privacy functionality from ShadowCash onto the Bitcoin Core 13.2 codebase but with .14 released in March it is highly likely that by the time we create the Particl genesis block we will be on Bitcoin Core .14 codebase.

Will there be a token exchange for PART?
A seed round is scheduled to start March 18th, 2017 and last 4 weeks. During this time existing ShadowCash token holders can exchange SDC for PART.

To participate in the Particl token exchange, you must have ShadowCash (SDC) tokens.

MyBit One-Page Summary

The MyBit platform (MyBit) connects investors from around the world with businesses and individuals seeking to fund revenue generating assets. No Banks, no attorneys, no middlemen required. Fast, convenient, secure peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions governed by smart contracts running on Ethereum.

For individuals and businesses who wish to obtain revenue generating assets but face financial or geographical restraints, MyBit unleashes a world of opportunities through cost-effective access to global capital. The result is a far more scalable and efficient funding model than provided by traditional financing.

Product/Service Summary

Enabling worldwide crowdfunding of revenue generating assets will be a game changer for everyone???eliminating financial barriers to entry, enabling new business models, accessing previously untapped capital from the many and providing an extremely low cost, paperless and efficient capital market for the masses.

The use cases are limitless, ranging from solar energy micro-grids to rental equipment to autonomous machinery and vehicles. Any asset whose usage can be automatically monitored is a potential use case. The proliferation of microprocessors in everyday items (think IoT) will enable the explosion of revenue generating assets and the explosion of growth of the MyBit platform.

The positive societal impact to individuals previously excluded from economic opportunities due to geography (proximity to a lending institution) or ability to meet minimum investment requirements (think net worth, investor sophistication, etc,..) will disproportionately propel the accelerated adoption of the MyBit solution.

First Target Market???Decentralized Energy Grids

With the forthcoming increase in electricity demand resulting from the proliferation of Artificial Intelligence in the areas of transportation and robotics, utility companies are exploring ways to scale the production of electricity outside their high cost traditional power generation facilities. Microgrids???small, decentralized solar energy production units???are a key component of their solution strategy.

Given there is no platform to securely connect small investors and individuals who wish to participate in the creation of microgrids (revenue generating assets) and sell the power production to the utility companies, the masses are left on the sidelines.

Solution

By commoditizing solar power systems and other forms of renewable energy, investors and landowners can crowdfund the coming decentralized energy grid and share in the corresponding revenue streams. Utility companies benefit since the new power generated will ride atop existing distribution lines and requires no material capital expansion expense. It is a win for investors, a win for private entrepreneurs, a win for the utility companies, and a significant win for the environment.

MyBit connects investors from around the world with businesses and individuals seeking to fund revenue generating assets like microgrids. The MyBit platform gives investors security on their investment, while landowners get access to investors willing to help in exchange for profit. By standardizing and automating setup, sales, and dividends, Mybit takes us step closer to an equitable economy.
