A new internet operating system

In 1995, Netscape was saying that the Browser was the OS for the Web, which confused many people including me.  The Web of last twenty some years was a Web of information (data).  Yet the next generation Web would be a Web of instant apps, which we call the Smart Web (vs the Smart Phone is a phone that runs apps) . Elastos is the sandbox for instant apps.  All instances of browsers and websites on the Smart Web are tracked on the Elastos Blockchain.  The http and so on protocols are completely hidden from apps running inside browsers and services running inside P2P websites, so that it would be extremely hard to breach privacy or launch DDoS attacks on the Smart Web.

Treasures of the game industry. Useless items to become priceless.

There are more than 2.2 billion players, who are spending time to get virtual assets. Only 6% of gamers can monetize them, as the game universes are not connected to each other. The blockchain technology provides a way to bring these universes together, creating real value for every virtual item from every game. The convergence of virtual and real economies will allow to open a multibillion dollar market of in-game items for billions of gamers. The report will cover the current state of the gaming industry, the growth opportunities, and the different ways the blockchain technology can change the way we manage virtual and real assets.
