Dragonchain – hybrid spitting fireBasics:Rank on CMC: 218Price: currently holding at ~0.05$, which is the ATL. Total supply 433,494,437 and circultaing supply of 238,421,940 DRGN. It reached its ATH price of ~ 5$ at the beginning of 2018. Exchanges: DRGN is listed on many exchanges, but all trades are made on 5 of them:Other exchanges at which it is listed are LocalTrade, BancorNetwork, COSS, LAtoken, CoinExchange, ETHfinex and IDEX but as visible, almost 86% of trades are on Kucoin. For detailed view of DRGN pairs, check below table:Team:Dragonchain team is built of people with lots of experience and knowledge, however I will just list those that are mentioned on Dragonchain official site.Joe Roets - Architect, Founder, and Chief Executive Officer of Seattle-based Dragonchain. Joe has more than 20 years of experience in software architecture (focus on: security and scalability). His name is related to well known companies as Coinbase, The Walt Disney, Overstock...where he was part of since 2010, and from 90's he was involved in creation and leading of startups. Sieng Van Tran –president of Dragonchain academy – with more than 20 years of work experience related to digital media, e-learning and ecommerce. Shirly Roets – president of Dragonchain foundation – Shirly is another powerfull woman in blockchain who leads Operations and has more than 15 years of experience in business operations and management. Jonel Cordero – Jonel is a chief operating officer with more than 10 years of experience in business administration and entrepreneurship and connects several departments.Filip Hantson was attracted to whole blockchain story after reading Satoshi Nakamoto's whitepaper and with his 20 years of experience in business development (including experience in IBM) has a role of VP of Strategic Business Development. Another strong link it Dragonchain chin is Matthew Roszak, who is leading blockchain investor, entrepreneur and advocate whose experience includes great names ad Binance, Civic (personally love that one!), Polymath, Qtum and many others. Then there is Jeff Garzik who spent 5 years and BTC core developer (!) and 10 years at Red Hat. I am not a Linux fan (my apologies to everyone that are), but those are very impressive notes in Jeff’s CV :) He is advisor in Dragonchain project.Short intro:Project developed 2014 as a first multi-chain hybrid. It started as the “Disney Private Blockchain Platform” and in 2016 it was released as open source software under Apache 2 licence. Personally, I like Apache since it helped me a lot during my learning phase, and at the time it was the only one functioning one without flaws. In 2017, Dragonchain Foundation was created, and it functions as a Non-profit organization.About the project:At the end of 2018, great Interchain patent rised. Interchain in simplest words represents interaction of private and public blockchain. And the reasons for its existence follow simple needs for more flexible system, more secured transactions and utility reasons. As Uptrennd cares about data privacy, same is with Dragonchain- complete control of private data stays in the hands of user, so sharing data on a public chain is their own decision and not decision of third party (which is usually the case in many existing projects/platforms...and represents a huge minus imho). Flexibility on the other hand helps speed: high speed, low operational costs.Basically, Dragonchain helps with building blockchain solutions. It is a platform for fast and easy development of blockchain applications and as developers claim, it is possible to build apps faster comparing to other blockchain solutions. So, developers have possibility of creating decentralised apps and smart contracts.“Hybrid” is the word that occurs very often lately, in many areas (automotive, computers, audio-visual system....), and is always related to expansion of solutions. Same case is with this project. Just for example, Ethereum is public only, there are some projects with private only option. Dragonchain combines both. That is where hybrid comes from. You can combine as you wish, keep data of your choice to remain private, or share what you want to share.Its a great plus that it is developer friendly because they have support for any language or code (including C#, Java, Pyton, Go, Node.js or any nix shell) and allow use of private chains. With those options, man-hours spent on learning new languages or hiring people are saved and it gives opportunity to wider range of developers. And in terms of scalability, it gives chance to have own blockchain with completely different data from other blockchains on the network. Implementation of Kubernetes offers even more possibilities. There were some issues with contract creation speed and limitations related to number of contracts available to a chain and updates, not many languages were supported and so on... So, to remove these flaws, above mentioned implementation idea was born. If you are interested in developer’s toolkit, check their official site: https://dragonchain.com/developersRelated to Dragonchain Arhitecture, I found this revision from 2016: https://dragonchain.com/assets/Dragonchain-Architecture.pdf but I am not sure if there is any newer revision release.13th of May there was official announcement on their FB page (link to Dragonchain FB is mentioned at the end of the post under „Links“ chapter) about available Developer plan. This is a great option since 3 months of free trial is available.

Hi guys,Hope you are doing fine all of you.Did you know that we only use only 5% of our total brain power?Yes, our conscious mind accounts only for 5%. Some people may develop it a little higher perhaps. As you see over 90% of our acts are being ruled by subsconscious mind. That is staggering.As you may listen that some blockchain cryptos are programmed, so are our minds. How?We’ve been programmed for good or bad since our childhood.Last month I saw one lady in Costco telling her son: “ Don’t get close to that fridge because you will get sick”. That’s a programming of your subconscious mind, believe it or not. Because that child’s subconscious mind will believe on the long run: fridge = catch a cold.Some unconscious patterns can be transferred from mother to daughter. For example if mother complains about her husband; sometimes the daughter may think for many years that watch out with all the men.This subconscious programming is originated even by our mass media. In the last articles, I’ve read about IRS warning letters to cryptoholders. IRS likes to use a fear technique, which causes that people hate anything related with taxes.The programming may be done through our very bad self comments. When you say about yourself: I’m so stupid because I lost 100 XRP in trading, unfortunately you are programing your subconscious mind in the following patter: trading – loss – the loss of my intelligence. I started to say in my house, when we break something like a glass: it’s a good luck. Believe it or not despite I am aware of the material loss of that glass, I don’t feel that bad. If it needs to be replaced, I will buy it but it won’t be any tragedy for me, period. I shifted into positive stuff.So for me it’s quite astonishing what I have seen during my life, how people really punish themselves for something that happened in the past or openly believe in certain lies.There is one lady, her name is Christie Marie Sheldon, which by certain techniques of NLP completely can reprogram our minds. You can find her coursed at Mindvalley Academy, I really recommend you to all of you.I will explain you very quickly how her technique works: You basically state certain facts that you don’t like about yourlife, your money facts or your relationships ,etc:For example: My articles aren’t good and I don’t get enough upvotes.What you say: Uncreate, Delete, Destory (Destory is a new word – you basically take it out of all the roots of existence)Or I suck at trading Bitcoin.What you say: Uncreate, Delete, Destory.And you can continue with other statements.After you finish with all the things that you don’t like, you can say the following:WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO WRITE GREAT ARTICLES, THE MOST UPVOTED ONES ON UPTRENND.And you continue shaping your current undesirable fact into something better. You are reprograming yourself, you are inviting to your life good thing to happen.So I was clearing my energy, believe it or not, and I was writing better articles.Another techniques that I wanna share I learned from the book Open your mind to receive:You can say those affirmations mentally (without saying words) – I’m receiving. I’m receiving now.I’m receiving now all the wealth that the Universe has for me now.Try do it, especially when you are surrounded by negative environment. I consider the negative environment as the people who like to complain or tell you always their personal tragedies or make guilty the government for everything that is happening to them. You can do it when waiting at the bank,Probably, in some ocassions you will listen someone telling you something negative about Blockchain or even about Uptrennd:When it happens, I recommend you this – don’t get into unnecessary arguments. A lot of people are living their reality because they have chosen because of their free will.Think silently: Uncreate, Delete, Destory that statement. Just completely ignore it, you know what you are want for yourself and that’s what counts.And that’s it.If you are a religious person and you strongly believe in God. Say your prayers, because prayers are a very positive affirmation and can change our life for good. You can even pray for your success on Blockchain projects or even Uptrennd.I will confess to all of you 15 years ago. I had a rough patch with my relationships, so once I read one book where I was told: imagine what you want to achieve just before you sleep, describe it with all details. So for 21 days I was imagining my future wife and I was stating what I wanted to get:A beautiful woman – CheckA business woman – CheckA great cheff – CheckA woman with great heart – Check.And other features as well.I totally obtained her what I asked for, so I cannot complain at all.So before you go to sleep, you can reprogram self stating what you want to obtain. You can even pray to make it happen.There is only one thing that you have to be careful, you have to ask only for the good and positive things. Because if someone ask’s for: I don’t want my cryptowallet to be hacked. Subconscious mind may interpret : wallet – hacked: so be carefull how you ask for it. You can say instead I want to have my cryptowallet safe and profitable. And you can picture the wallet full of all the Bitcoins, 1UP tokens or any other ALT.Something that is very important is that we live our life full of happiness. I don’t know if I’ve ever told you but when Uptrennding I really feel happy myself. For me it’s a hobby, which I really enjoy;Something that makes feel complete, surrounded by friendly community of great Uptrenndians who are doing really good job.This how our life should be, focusing on the good and positive stuff instead of other details. If we are happy inside of us, that’s how we can motivate ourselves on the long run.I wanna share you a story of my fiance’s cousin. She studied psychology at a very prestigious and expensive private University. One day she told her mother that she decided to become a Belly dancer. First of all, her mother got really angry at her, but the cousin Maria did whatever she proposed. So guess what, she learned how to dance, and she established academy of Belly Dance. Then she started to import accessories for Belly Dance from Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, etc. And as a last stage she started to arrange tours for belly dancers, after the boom of Belly dance which happened after Shakira’s hits. And Maria became very successful.So as you see, sometimes the path may completely shift from prestablished standards by the society, by the family; it doesn’t mean that it has to be wrong, it’s just another way how to live your life with conviction and happiness.Sometimes you have to defy the negative opinions set up by the society. Some people have believed one lie that you have to become a perfectionist or a master before you set up a business:I strongly disagree and I will tell you the following example:Well I had one student. She was 24. When she was 21 her relative died, and she decided to invest the money she inherited. She studied Faculty of Gastronomy in Monterrey. She didn’t have enough experience as her well trained and skilled cheff instructors. So she did a quick business plan and she opened her pastry shop – where she was selling nicely decorated cakes for special events of young high class girls. When she had technical problems – she took advantage of studying at the Faculty, she was consulting the cheffs and she hired other people. When you are a businessman or a businesswoman, you don’t have to know everything but you have to be surrounded by the right people at the right time.So I think that initiative, happiness, good vibe, vision, being brave, positivity, having planning skills, being oriented to reach goals, disciplined, organized, being leader and have skills to delegate tasks; those are the tools on how to make at any Blockchain project. You just have to go for it if you want to make it happen, being positively programmed for your success. As they say, it all starts if you believe it yourself that it’s gonna become a success.
