Holochain - Like Blockchain, but faster and more scalable
#11
Holochain is different to the blockchain. It can be understood like this:
Facebook, Amazon and Twitter are Centralized.
Bitcoin, and Ethereum are Decentralized.
Holochain is Distributed. In theory, Holochain has almost all the benefits of blockchain, but is scalable, energy efficient and fast.

The Holo token is an Ethereum token which is exchanged for Eth.

The Holo tokens will later on be exchangeable for Holo fuel, which as I understand it is similar to the Gas of Neo.

Holo definitely does not run on the Ethereum network or any other classical blockchain technology. Holo runs on the Holochain technology.

In most ICOs these days, even tech thas has nothing to do with Ethereum use Eth as their main payment method because Ethereum smart contracts are reasonably easy to create, Ethereum is well known, but most importantly, it is easily obtainable for fiat.

I'm not sure I want anyone to invest in this one heavily, just based on my recommendation, but I most definitely recommend studying the Green Paper and the underlying technology of the Holochain, because the crypto which eventually will dominate will be based on at least some of the principles that the Holochain is built on.

This is one to study more than invest in. You can actually wait for the ICO to finish and then buy Holo Fuel later, because I don't anticipate the price to go up too much early on. If the project comes out of Alpha and gets some positive press, you can always buy in later.

On paper it has the most promising tech I've seen described so far, but investment potential may or may not be there. Some ICOs, you just know that you can flip tokens for profit within a few months. This ICO, the hype just isn't there. They don't seem to have much social coverage.

If they had a marketing department, and the blockchain community was fully aware of this techology's potential, this would be one of those ICOs sold out in the first hour. I'm hoping they do well, because the Holochain is the most promising new technology that actually has the potential to help dethrone the centralized Internet giants. This isn't just a cryptocurrency, it's an appilcation development and hosting platform.

Will Holo replace Bitcoin and Ethereum? Probably not. Can it compete with Facebook and Twitter? Quite Possibly.

Now this is where my confusion is multiplied 10-fold. How can a blockchain / holochain compete with social media like Facebook and Twitter? I am not doubting that it can happen but the theory behind it is beyond me.

It is actually possible to run a Twitter - like application on the Ethereum network, but it would probably cost in the billions of dollars in Gas fees. And until POS and sharding are implemented, it would way slower than the centralised Twitter. 

Holochain is built from the ground up to be an efficient host for distributed applications. 


They will be providing Rapid Application Development tools to make it easier for developers to make software like social media networks.

You know how sharding is going to come to the Ethereum network, and this will make it much faster and greatly reduce fees? Holochain already does its own form of sharding. This and other differences with the blockchain are what enables holochain to be a more efficient user of holo fuel miners. 

This information is in the Holo Green paper linked in the Op. I suggest reading the Green paper. It is quite user friendly

There is really a need for an alternative to Twitter and Facebook. For twitter it's now confirmed they collect your data and sell to third parties.

The Holo ICO is now open. It requires verification and whitelisting.

This is the best project I have seen in the cryptocurrency scene so far.

It has the potential to make differences in the following areas:

(From the Holochain FAQ: https://github.com/Holochain/holochain-proto/wiki/FAQ  )

What kind of projects is Holochain good for?
Sharing collaborative data without centralized control. Imagine a completely decentralized Wikipedia, DNS without root servers, or the ability to have fast reliable queries on a fully distributed PKI, etc.
  • Social Networks, Social Media & VRM: You want to run a social network without a company like Facebook in the middle. You want to share, post, publish, or tweet to shared space, while automatically keeping a copy of these things on your own device.
  • Supply Chains & Open Value Networks: You want to have information that crosses the boundaries of companies, organizations, countries, which is collaboratively shared and managed, but not under the central control of any one of those organizations.
  • Cooperatives and New Commons: You want to create something which is truly held collectively and not by any particular individual. This is especially good for digital assets.
  • P2P Platforms: Peer-to-Peer applications where every person has similar capabilities, access, responsibilities, and value is produced collectively.
  • Collective Intelligence: Governance, decision-making frameworks, feedback systems, ratings, currencies, annotations, or work flow systems.
  • Collaborative Applications: Chats, Discussion Boards, Scheduling Apps, Wikis, Documentation, etc.
  • Reputational or Mutual Credit Cryptocurrencies: Currencies where issuance can be accounted for by actions of peers (like ratings), or through double-entry accounting are well-suited for holochains. Fiat currencies where tokens are thought to exist independent of accountability by agents are more challenging to implement on holochains.

I totaly agree. It is a fantastic project. I believe in it for the fully 100%.
What is this thing that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us?

Seems like a viable next generation  dApp platform and everything looks professional to me. And the token value is very coupled to the evolution of the project.

Okay. Good luck. I didn't invest yet. If you have a referral code then PM me so you can get some bonus if I decide to invest.
