According to the official blog post: In addition, the company promises a strong auditing program: This will set them apart from Tether, who have had many controversies recently regarding their auditing practices.

TechCrunch recently reported on the detailed plans for Telegram's multi-billion dollar ICO that's planned for 2018. Now Cryptovest and The Next Web have obtained a leaked copy of the complete whitepaper for the Telegram ICO, with lots of juicy details. Telegram has high-reaching goals for their new cryptocurrency and Telegram Open Network (TON) blockchain: Interestingly they have chosen to not only create a single blockchain, but will use "a scalable and flexible blockchain architecture that consists of a master chain and up to 2^92 accompanying blockchains". This allows a number of advantages over single-blockchain approaches, especially regarding scalability. TON will also offer a variety of different services, including TON Storage, TON Proxy, TON Services (smart contracts), TON DNS, and TON Payments. All of these services will be integrated into the Telegram messenger application to avoid needing to download a separate wallet client. What do you think of the new Telegram ICO? Will you be buying in when the initial offering goes on sale, to fund the development of this broad-reaching blockchain platform?
The Engima Project is focused on fixing privacy and scalability for blockchains. They also create the Catalyst project, which is a platform for data-driven crypto trading and investing. Recently the Enigma team published a new blog post about how their privacy protocol will enable many new applications in the crypto world. In particular, the team are making resources available to any other teams who would like to integrate the Engima protocol into their own projects. What's the advantage of Engima? The key to this protocol is the concept of "secret contracts" that occur off-chain on a second layer of Engima nodes. These nodes enable processing of transactions securely without the full details being processed and recorded forever on the main blockchain. I do recommend checking out the Engima whitepapers. This looks like a promising technology with a good team behind it. The project makes some bold claims ("we believe that any secure, decentralized data marketplace must run on the Enigma protocol"), but there's no denying that the success of Monero (XMR) recently shows there is demand for privacy (and not just security) in the blockchain world. Keep an eye on this project for future developments.
