Picolo is building decentralized storage infrastructure for blockchains and web 3. It will consist of a data sharing platform powered by nodes running a database like software with features such as complex querying, differential privacy, fine grained access control to data and audits. Two blockchains invested in us and we will be a launch partner with one of them. Picolo aims to host all blockchain data and make it available for querying. It will also have native support for data sharing between dapps and state channels. Ideally, data is encrypted, would never even leave this network and code would ‘come to it’ and perform computations without leaking any info.
Nuo is a Singapore based project decentralizing debt markets by connecting lenders and borrowers. Borrowers on the platform can stake tokens as collateral and borrow or margin trade ETH or ERC20 tokens with leverage. The protocol has already processed $25,000 worth of loans and provides an on-chain lending solution for digital assets.
WalletConnect is a simple solution that bridges communication between browser-based dApps and mobile wallets using a QR code scan to establish the initial connection. It is an open protocol and does not require a dApp user to install a browser extension. The protocol is agnostic to specific mobile wallets a user may want to use and will enable dApp developers to integrate with multiple wallets and reach users through a single implementation.
San Francisco based TapTrust is building a self sovereign wallet that utilizes a standard username and password login and allows users easy set-up without ever needing to back-up a seed phrase. In addition to their wallet offering, TapTrust is incorporating a commercial feature called TrustFund that provides loss protection for smart contract security exploits. The loss protection offered with TrustFund along with the ease of setup for the TapTrust wallet should make it easy for people to get started with using dApps without the major risk factor of losing their crypto.
Quidli makes employee equity distribution simple and flexible. Our platform is designed for founders and CEOs to customize employee equity based on the performance metrics that matter to them.

Nations and their heritage institutions will be able to monitor the whereabouts of their antiquities, manage the journeys of these valuable assets through time, and empower citizens to liberate the use of their associated cultural data in all types of digital content, for the greater good of society.
FastX is an open layer-2 scalability protocol that enables dApps to have high throughput and instant transactions with the security of Ethereum mainnet. With FastX protocol integration, dApps can substantially improve their user experiences and reach the masses.
Incubated in Harvard Innovation Lab, Expercoin is a blockchain protocol for building expert networks and talent platforms that are powered by AI. Using blockchain, Expercoin can track and verify the reputation of experts, driving down costs associated with centralized marketplaces. Enterprises that are unable to grow because of scarcity of high-end talent can recruit subject matter experts at scale and build their own specialized networks to perform work and upskill employees. Created by the team that gave us Experfy, the world’s largest on-demand AI consulting marketplace with 30,000 data scientists, the Expercoin protocol was a response to Fortune 500s who wanted to white label Experfy for their specific needs. Expercoin’s vision is to create thousands of decentalized expert platforms with millions of experts, directly addressing the growing skills-gap across verticals.
