Litecoin, a peer-to-peer opensource digital currency, could be described as an offshoot of bitcoin. In fact, it is based on the bitcoin protocol, but instead of requiring extraordinary computing power to mine effectively, can be mined efficiently using standard computers due to its algorithm originally designed by Dr Colin Percival for the Tarsnap secure online backup service for Linux and other opensource operating systems.
But regardless of whether you’re using Twitter, Instagram, or Google+: Awareness and consideration about privacy and data protection are also important factors in choosing to use any of the other social media giants. One common complaint targeted specifically at Facebook is that that Facebook Newsfeed algorithms decide exactly what you do and don’t see. Another problem is personalized advertising, which is of course only possible through accessing and interpreting personal user data. As you can see: the list of criticisms for the social network market leader is long. So it’s good news that there are a few other alternatives to Facebook on the market. Some of these Facebook alternatives are more conservative, offer less advertising, others offer improved data protection, and some even offer extended functions and features that aren’t currently available for Facebook customers.
Although some experts we spoke to still believe that bitcoin will remain the defacto posterchild of cryptocurrencies, rising in value and usefulness in the years to come, there’s no denying it faces some difficulties. Ethereum and newer altcoins have fixed some of those potential problems, at least in the short term. Ethereum hasn’t yet hit the scaling issues that bitcoin has encountered, sending fees skyrocketing. It also incorporates additional features like smart-contracts, which could make Ethereum and its currency, Ether, the preferred cryptocurrency for a variety of industries in the future.
Litecoin, launched in 2011, was among the initial cryptocurrencies following bitcoin and has often been referred to as “silver to bitcoin’s gold.” It was created by Charlie Lee, an MIT graduate and former Google engineer. Litecoin is based on an open source global payment network that is not controlled by any central authority and uses "scrypt" as a proof of work, which can be decoded with the help of CPUs of consumer grade. Although Litecoin is like bitcoin in many ways, it has a faster block generation rate and hence offers a faster transaction confirmation. Other than developers, there are a growing number of merchants who accept Litecoin. As of October 5, 2018, Litecoin had a market cap of $3.40 billion and a per token value of $58.09.
VeChain Thor is a blockchain-as-a-service company that primarily focuses on supply chain logistics.

What if online social and commerce platforms paid you just for participating within their system? What if they distributed funds back to you, THE USER, in the form of Universal Basic Income versus giving it to shareholders and other stake holders? I discovered the answer to these questions roughly a year ago when my in-laws introduced me to the ORU Marketplace.

Ripple is an unusual cryptocurrency. Unlike bitcoin it's centralized, with a small group of developers setting the rules and determining availability. It also has a specific use: the coin was created to enable transfers between financial institutions. While that should give it a certain degree of security the lack of community control has made it a controversial and unreliable investment vehicle. In 2017, Ripple's dollar value rose by 36,000 percent. It's since come back down significantly.

There are a couple downsides to Catster and Dogster. Because neither community is as big as Facebook, you won't attain the same reach as you would creating an FB profile for your cat or dog. In addition, these sites haven't received updates lately, so they're starting to look quite dated by modern standards. However, you can't beat their relevance, or the pet-related information they provide.
While Tumblr and Reddit look to create communities for as many interests as possible, “Amino” encourages niché topics. Most of them will appeal to your inner nerd. There are already more than 250,000 communities focused on geek topics from Pokémon to anime to K-pop. The larger communities attract anywhere between tens of thousands of users to more than 600,000.
We have made most of these products and services available for free and then decided to create a subscription model for our more advanced products.  In creating this “software as a service” model, we realized through years of research and experience that the majority of the people we envision using our network would find the normal established cost of these types of products prohibitive.  In order to create excitement for our members and customers we had to come up with an affordable subscription plan that would be accessible to most people.  And we did it.  For a mere $5.95 a month we established the Premium Club Membership option and the ORU Advocacy Protocol Rewards Program, side by side with our ORU Basic Universal Income Program.

With little exception, Ethereum has been firmly planted as the No. 2 most valuable cryptocurrency for about a year. I’ve stated my case that it very well could be, and should be, the world’s top virtual coin thanks to the utility of its underlying blockchain technology. Blockchain being the digital, distributed, and decentralized ledger responsible for recording transactions in a transparent and unchanging manner.
Instagram, owned by Facebook has grown over the past few years by leaps and bounds. It’s an all round social network, as it lets you upload photos, short videos and even exchange texts with others. The great thing is you can set Instagram to post your updates on your Facebook, Twitter and other profiles as well. Thanks to Instagram’s popularity, there has been a rise in various similar apps, which you can check out.

There are quite a many factors that help to pump up the value of BNB coins. In particular, Binance incentivizes members to use the BNB coin when paying for fees in exchange for discounts. This alone can buoy the value of the BNB token, helping to explain why it’s one of the top performers in 2018. Binance offers a 50% trading-fee discount for the first year if using Binance Coin to pay for trading fees, with a staggered (but smaller) series of discounts through a member’s first four years.

The self-proclaimed “front page of the internet” is a social news aggregate and discussion forum that’s been around since 2005. Registered users (redditors) submit content in a variety of subjects—news, science, music, books, video games, etc.—and other redditors vote the content up or down. Submissions with more upvotes remain nearer to the top of their subject board, or subreddit, while those with enough up votes hit the site’s front page.
An ORU is an academic unit the University has established to provide a supportive infrastructure for interdisciplinary research that complements the academic goals of departments. Characteristically, ORUs cross significant intellectual boundaries between disciplines such as those assumed to exist between departments and divisions, or their equivalent. ORUs may also be established to serve a compelling campus research priority or need that has been identified through broad campus consultation or strategic planning.
Vero also differentiates itself in a few ways. The app makes it easy to search through old posts, allowing you to quickly view, say, all the movies friends have recommended to you. It also promises not to use any algorithm magic on your feed, so you'll always see posts in reverse chronological order. Finally, Vero offers an ad-free experience. Instead, the company plans to cover expenses with subscription fees. For now, however, Vero is still free for the first million people who sign up, so if the network sounds appealing, you should act fast.

Due to the Ethereum features and its potential to change the world forever, it has caught everyone’s attention including corporations like Microsoft and individuals like you and me. It also attracts developers to use its features to create decentralized apps using smart contracts that run on the Ethereum network, thus increasing its popularity and value.
What bitcoin and its competitors share is an existence in the ether, as a digital code rather than metal coins or paper bills. Beneath these currencies lies a technology known as blockchain that keeps a record of all transactions without an authority like a central bank. Advocates say cryptocurrency is thus free of meddling that changes the amount of currency in circulation, like when the U.S. Federal Reserve adjusts supply to spur economic growth or curb inflation. Free of such interference, digital currency can rise and fall with supply and demand in a worldwide marketplace. Blockchain serves users who don't necessarily trust one another.
Diaspora's key advantage is that it's based on open source software that multiple servers can run. It does not put your private information, your likes, your contacts and your photos in the hands of one corporation who then use it to increase their own private profits by selling your privacy. Diaspora is much smaller though. The UI feels more like Google Plus than Facebook. JohnFastman • Dec 2016 • 5 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
For most of the 7.4 billion people on our planet, life is a constant struggle, dominated by stress,  overwhelmed by poverty and lacking the resources to live a dignified life. Over half of the world’s wealth is in the hands of 1% of the richest people.  As members we can make a positive contribution to the lives of millions of people, pay our success forward and give meaning to the short period of precious time we have been given on this earth. Be an Orutopian, be an Advocate for a better life and help us to be One Race United.
