Imagine a free world in which governments can be held to account. Where our elected representatives are recognized for what they are; our neighbors. A world in which we have the ability to generate an instant consensus on the things that truly matter.
REPRESENT has a vision of a world in which decentralized voting can make that happen.
A Voice for Everyone
REPRESENT has created a new blockchain app that gives every citizen on Earth the chance to have a say on issues and laws from the convenience of their mobile phones. Governments, organizations, and individuals alike: everyone can use…
We have all had that feeling of emptiness when we realize we have spent the last hour or two scrolling through social feeds, from Twitter, to “insta”, to Facebook and so on. So much consumption, not much satisfaction, and bucket loads of wasted time.
“But! I need that many … one for messages and calls, one for posting photos, one for group chats, one for watching content, one for …”
Navigating between different social media platforms is one of those time thieves we don’t necessarily think about much, but which nonetheless drains resources.
Platform navigation not only sucks up your…
DeFi, or decentralized finance, is a blockchain-based form of finance that does not require centralized financial intermediaries such as exchanges, brokers, or banks. Instead, transactions are conducted using smart contracts, sometimes peer-to-peer but increasingly through liquidity pools and automated market matching. Bancor was the original decentralized exchange, but Uniswap popularized the market with its low fee structure using the Ethereum blockchain. Although, it should be noted that subsequent congestion on the Ethereum blockchain has caused higher gas fees quite separate from Uniswap’s 0.3 flat fee structure, regardless of transaction size.
Summer of DeFi
The so-called summer of DeFi actually began…
I know — DeFi has so many protocols it’s sometimes hard to keep track. It’s stressful to try to understand different instruments but end up even more confused. It’s worse when you see all the whales minting money, and you’re left with just scraps from the table.
I’ve been in your shoes.
That is why I’m telling you — it is worth your time to plough through this. According to defipulse.com, $61 billion is already locked up in yield farming at the time of writing. There is money to be had if you know where to look.
But first, let’s…
The Grow Crypto team is excited to announce our alliance with OMNI, a holistic, user-centric, decentralized alternative to the mass adopted social applications we all love to hate.

“We believe OMNI can disrupt the social media status quo, combining…
Chart after chart. Green candle after green candle. Portfolios with the up arrow.
It’s exciting. But it doesn’t last, does it?
It gets boring during downtimes, sideways charts drive people crazy, and popular crypto Twitter accounts become quiet. The wait for action feels like an eternity as you’re stuck alone watching screens for most of your day, except for when you read trading forums. And unlike the stock market, you don’t get evening and weekend breaks.
These lulls are why crypto trading gamification, especially with teams, is the next big thing.
IOI is at the forefront of it by integrating…
My friend almost fell for a crypto airdrop scam recently.
The premise was — You send ‘X’ tokens to a wallet address, and you instantly get 5x the amount back. Screams scam, doesn’t it?
The problem is they make it incredibly realistic — the Telegram chat name was the same as the project’s, the member count was high enough, and bots would regularly hype up the giveaway by posting fake screenshots. Genuine user comments (read: complaints) were deleted within a split second.
It was a perfectly set up scam for taking money from people getting their feet wet in crypto…
The evolution of blockchain technology and its uses can, in some ways, compare to the development of modern hospitals and healthcare.
In the Dark Ages, if you suffered a severe accident, let’s say you got your leg crushed by a horse-drawn cart, you would sit in pain until a barber-surgeon came out to take a look at the damage.
These medical practitioners were called as such because they started as barbers shaving monks’ heads. It so happens that having good hand-eye coordination and skills with a razor are also good qualities for performing amputations. At their height, barber-surgeons performed surgeries…
Video content that stays confined to the borders of a country has become a thing of the past. From Netflix reaching 190 countries to South Korean movie Parasite winning the Academy Award for best picture, the global spread is only accelerating.
While streaming services have helped the spread of video content, there’s still a major bottleneck with licensing and distribution rights. Content providers (streaming services and traditional broadcasters) still have to rely on buyers to attend trade fairs, find content they think people will watch, and pay distributors to get it to screens.
All the traveling, legal fees, and distributor…
“In character, in manner, in style, in all the things, the supreme excellence is simplicity” ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Favorite Poems.
If you’re reading this article, you’ve most likely heard about decentralized finance (DeFi) at this point. Decentralized exchanges (DEXs), stablecoins, lending, borrowing, margin trading, payments, insurance, gaming, prediction markets, wrapped Bitcoin, NFT markets — all of these have DeFi elements to them now.
One of the fastest-growing of these sectors is lending and borrowing. At time of writing, the total value locked (TVL) in DeFi is over $112 Billion. That means $112 Billion worth of crypto assets are locked…
