A lot of innovative concepts exist in the world of cryptocurrency. Not all of them will succeed in the long run, yet interesting developments tend to take place quite regularly. The ORCA Alliance, for example, seems to offer conversion from cryptocurrency to fiat currency with no fees or delays.
The ORCA Alliance in a Nutshell
On paper, the ORCA Alliance aims to become a decentralized platform for all cryptocurrency and fiat currency operations. Bridging the gap between these two industries will not be easy, as the financial sector doesn’t always take kindly to cryptocurrency. Even so, this platform will combine all of one’s finances into one application.

DATA project aims to resolve the massive hidden threat to the digital marketing and advertising industry; ad fraud, which costs the industry over USD$ 16 billion per year.
The current anti-fraud technologies attempt to detect the fraudulent data, be it fake users or fake devices, only after the fraud has occurred, meaning data has been propagated into the entire sell-and-demand transaction ecosystem. The policing agency IAB provides the black-and-white-list of fraudulent data as a centralized list, however, these lists can become quickly out-of-date in real time, meaning it can be easily manipulated.
