Smilo is a unique full-featured hybrid blockchain platform that will be able to facilitate hybrid transactions, hybrid smart contracts and hybrid decentralised applications — with ‘hybrid’ referring to both public and private. As such, Smilo will safeguard the privacy of any individual's data whilst warranting full transparency from the organisations that these individuals interact with. Smilo is based on the unique and self-made Smilo BFT+ consensus protocol. This consensus algorithm combined with the exclusive Smilo Network Protocol (SNP) ensures secure, scalable, quick, and sustainable transactions. Considering these features, we call Smilo our hybrid blockchain platform with a conscience.
Smilo is a unique blockchain platform which supports the combination of hybrid transactions, hybrid smart contracts, and hybrid decentralised applications — with ‘hybrid’ referring to both public and private. Smilo's intent is to use blockchain technology to create an alternative protocol for decentralised applications.
Smilo's unique strength stems from its combination of several features. The best affordances of the Smilo platform are the hybrid transactions, -smart contracts, and -decentralised applications. No other platform has yet to combine these features. A combination of these features is very useful in many different scenarios, examples of which are explored further below.
The core team of the Smilo platform consists of sixteen members with various specialities. In addition to the core team, the Smilo platform has access to over 200 developers to work for Smilo through freelance partnerships. The leaders of the Smilo platform have over 30 years of business and IT experience.
The intent of Smilo is to create a full-featured blockchain platform which hosts hybrid transactions, -smart contracts, and -decentralised applications. Since we are creating the platform in Java from square one, we can ensure it is completely open source.
Smilo's Vision & Mission:
Their vision is to facilitate a culture of transparency by making collective data irreversible and publicly available, whilst protecting personal data. This will significantly limit the chance of corruption whilst simultaneously acknowledging the need to protect the individual’s data. A decline of middle men will occur due to the irreversible nature of Smilo’s user-friendly hybrid smart contracts. The combination of public and private transactions on one blockchain platform, based on the Smilo Network Protocol in combination with the Smilo BFT+ consensus mechanism, defines Smilo as a hybrid blockchain platform with a conscience.
Their mission is to create an environment in which the consumer's need for privacy and security will be aligned with the processes of governments, NGOs, financial institutions and corporations. This will be accomplished by warranting full accountability and transparency from corporations, whilst safeguarding the consumer’s needs. This environment will be hosted on Smilo’s decentralised, secure, fast, and sustainable hybrid blockchain platform. Not to mention, Smilo will make their source code publicly available, meaning that future blockchains, organisations and their applications can apply it to their specific needs.
Individuals have become the moral gatekeepers in society, demanding sustainable products and services, while privacy, transparency, and security need to be guaranteed.
Due to this societal shift towards accountability and transparency, businesses, governments, and institutes are directed to transition to a more sustainable state.
In light of these developments, we identified the need for a hybrid blockchain platform. A platform that provides these public entities with the right tools to reaffirm their relationship with its stakeholders, warranting transparency whilst protecting the individual’s personal data.
This is where Smilo comes into play! Smilo will safeguard the privacy of any individual's data whilst warranting full transparency from the organisations that these individuals interact with.
Smilo's intent is to use the blockchain to create an alternative protocol for decentralised applications. Smilo's unique strength derives from the combination of multiple features:
Hybrid smart contracts
Hybrid decentralised applications
Privacy and anonymity
Connection to real life applications
Use Of Platform:
some examples of Smilo platform usage cases are:
Smilo facilitates a safe and private election or referendum, ruling out post-election influence.
Facilitate donations and ensure anonymous donors that money will be spent in a respectable manner.

What is NODVIX?
NODVIX is a 24-hour broadcasting platform designed to display interesting and relevant video content specific to a user's interests. NODVIX is a self-regulating, open to all, real-time, video content platform that bypasses the restrictions found within the current $1.7 trillion broadcasting market.
We provide a decentralized blockchain-powered solution that profoundly changes the digital broadcasting world for content makers, advertisers, and viewers alike. The absence of KYC, governmental censorship and ease of entry for new content-makers creates a unique environment for real freedom of speech. Advertisers benefit from sponsoring content relevant to their business while paying a fraction of what the market demands.
Television and radio broadcasting have been with us for almost 100 years. They’ve been the core of an information revolution that drove every single one of the events of the 20th and 21st centuries. In 1914, before radio, a single event triggered a world war simply because there was no real-time information. As news spread of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, countries all around the planet responded through the use of treaties and pre-made alliances. There was no time for a voice of reason, and no way to distribute it. That was the last war fought without mass-market telecommunications technology and it was in many ways the fiercest and most cruel war of all time.
Radio, then television, have played a part in building a worldwide peace that has lasted since the 1940s. Sure the world isn’t free of military conflict, but thanks to global communication and the way it brings us together, most of us have never seen anything like a world war. Television has made war more horrifying for the average person and that’s a good thing.
In the meantime, radio and television have brought us happy times and sad, kept us informed during national disasters and tragedies, and given us hope when we have needed it most. Broadcasting has lifted us up and unified us and clarified our purpose.
And for the first time in its history, television — in fact all broadcasting — is under attack on several fronts.
Obviously the greatest challenge to television is the internet. By creating a global, always-on network full of on-demand content, the internet has become the way most of us get our information. The internet has already made television obsolete as a global news medium – by the time the TV news gets hold of something, the internet has had it for hours or days. The immediacy and intimacy of the internet, delivered exactly as we want it, when we want it, has made people move away from broadcasting in droves. That’s already happened.
Recognizing the brodcasting era that is now becoming more sophisticated, NODVIX is challenged to become a brodcasting platform that is able to present interesting and relevant video content specific to a user’s interests. NODVIX is a 24-hour P2P broadcasting platform designed to display interesting and relevant video content to its users that is free from restrictions and provides a revenue model that pays creators/uploaders.
With a system like this, it allows creators or other stakeholders to feel valued for their efforts.
How It Works?
A user creates or uploads content to the NODVIX platform. Content could be a music video, news story, film, or anything with a frame rate!
A torrent-file (hash file) is generated and uploaded to the Torrent-Nodes. The file also contains a unique wallet address where profits will be sent.
The Torrent-Nodes vote to categorize the content, as well as review the content. Should the content be illegal in nature, the Torrent-Nodes will permanently block the file.
Advertisers then select which category of content they would like to sponsor. These adverts are reviewed, rated, authorized and placed by the Torrent-Nodes.
Content is placed into one of many specialized channels based on the Torrent-Nodes categorization and broadcast to the NODVIX platform network.
Users can watch 24-hour content through the platform based on their interests and preferences. Adverts will appear in a non-intrusive manner periodically and targeted for that category of media.
Decentralised Peer-to-Peer broadcasting and content storage that is highly resistant to censorship, bias, and blocking
Self-regulating content management and monetization of media enabled through the utilization of “Torrent Nodes”
Easy and unrestricted access for all market participants with no limitations placed on geographic location or governmental censorship
Free, equitable access for advertisers and content-makers
An honest division of income to video content creators, publishers, and advertisers
A vast selection of TV channels with globally created content open to all
NODVIX Token (NDVX)
The company's internal digital currency, NDVX, is an ERC20 token and used as both a means of payment and an enabler for the Torrent-Node network.
Advertisers use NDVX to pay for advert airtime on the channel of their choosing along with discounts for utilizing the NDVX tokens.
Content-makers and Uploaders receive NDVX tokens as payment for services.
NDVX tokens create Master-Nodes. This type of Torrent-Node provides a higher rate income (8%) for their participation in the information storage, dissemination services, and content review. Master-Nodes are weighted meaning additional NDVX over the minimum amount will multiply the payout value.

Excalibur Based On ERC20 Platform:
Developers of this OS decided to launch their XOS token on the ERC20 platform because of its ability to support smart contracts. It is also based on the Ethereum blockchain, that enables the smart contracts to self-execute. Ethereum also utilizes a unique and complex data structure known as Merkle Patricia Tree. This structure stores data in multiple sets enabling quick modification and verification of the individual data sets unlike other platforms that use a single structure.
The multiple program states also allow automatic execution of smart contracts, is able to compute the amount of funds collected as well as verify and confirm all transactions carried out within the system. Furthermore, the system is also able to distribute tokens to their respective owners after the crowd sale is complete.
Excalibur OS use ERC20 Platform as ERC20 is a technical standard used for smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. By analyzing a rapid growth of Ethereum we choose ERC20 based on Ethereum Platform as our platform to launch our XOS token.
Ethereum uses a complex data structure called a Merkle Patricia Tree to store a tree of program states, allowing for quick modification and verification of the various states required to execute an ICO. Instead of only containing a transaction ledger, the Ethereum blockchain’s multiple program states allows for the execution of smart contracts that automatically calculate the number of funds raised, verify and confirm transactions, and distribute new tokens upon the completion of the crowdsale.
