Blockchain is a decentralized general ledger. It is a computer network that has an identical copy of the database and changes its status (records) to a common agreement based on pure mathematics. All this means that there is no need for any central server or any entity we trust (e.g. central bank, notaries, banks, paypal, etc.). The blockchain is the technological basis for all cryptocurrencies, whether Bitcoin, Ethereum, Hyperledger, etc.
An important part of the blockchain is the smart contracts, a piece of code that is stored in the blockchain network (in each participant's database). It basically defines the conditions to which all parties using the contract agree. Therefore, if the required conditions are met, certain actions are executed. Because the smart contract is stored on all computers on the network, everyone must run it and get the same result. This way users can be sure that the result is correct.
After this brief introduction to the broad topic of Blockchain and Smart Contracts, we can already see that this technology opens many doors to new decentralized businesses and eliminates the need for expensive third parties. Many new companies are now working on this technology, and large companies are testing it in closed networks to collaborate directly with each other without the need for intermediaries. For that reason, there is a lot of projects that are starting to use this new technology. However, not all of them are worth it. We have to read well what each project is dedicated to, what is its whitepaper, its qualified advisors, etc. As I said, blockchain technology has gained popularity due to the hype about cryptocurrencies which has shaken many startups to launch their own cryptocurrencies even without convincing fundamentals. This trend has emerged because new entrants have been more agile in adopting emerging technologies compared to incumbents who are hampered by legacy systems. However, this competitiveness and this advantage enjoyed by the new players may be short-lived, as no economies of scale are taken into account.
Moving to the topic I want to talk you today, as cyber threats grow exponentially, modern cybersecurity solutions are reactive, outdated and ineffective. The vast majority of threat data is controlled by large companies and governments, making it difficult and expensive to create next-generation solutions that improve protection. Recent advances in protection against artificial intelligence-based threats are promising, but solutions are implemented almost exclusively in large corporate applications, which puts technology out of reach of people most vulnerable to attacks.
For this reason, the project I am going to present you is HEROIC.com, a new cryptocurrency project that is driving the future of cybersecurity with artificial intelligence and the blockhain to protect against current and next-generation cyber threats.
As I said, HEROIC.com (HRO) (https://tokensale.heroic.com/) is the most innovative blockchain based cryptocurrency project that adopts a new approach to protection against AI-driven threats. Using large data, artificial intelligence and the blocking chain, combined with a decentralized platform for protection against peer-to-peer threats, HEROIC.com will change cybersecurity as we know it and make next-generation solutions universally available. HEROIC.com will empower and encourage developers and companies to create the next generation of cybersecurity through the HEROIC.com Ecosystem.
There are three major characteristics that HEROIC.com presents, which are described into the following table.
Image Feature Description Arc Reactor HEROIC Arc Reactor ™ is an open and decentralized threat intelligence that collects, transforms and distributes threat data for the benefit of the community. Guardian HEROIC Guardian ™ is a unified cloud-based platform that combines Arc Reactor threat data with artificial intelligence to predict and prevent cyber attacks. R & D platform It allows developers and organizations to interact visually and programmatically with Arc Reactor threat data and create their own custom solutions.
Image Advantage Description Open, AI-Powered Threat Protection Get premium access to our unified cybersecurity platform that manages all the pieces of the cybersecurity puzzle and uses artificial intelligence to block advanced attacks and cyber threats. Compensation of threats Receive effortless HRO tokens as your devices anonymously share the threat data that is collected while browsing the Web, downloading files and programs and through the normal daily use of the devices. Help protect the world Our information and privacy are in danger. Be part of something unique and help us develop the next generation of cybersecurity solutions to intelligently protect the world's information.
The project gives the opportunity to earn HEROIC.com tokens performing some social media tasks and doing simple steps from the bounty program explained into the Bitcointalk Web Page. Here (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4511192.0) you can access the link in order to see what are the conditions to become an early HROcontributor and start acquiring tokens.
Doesn't that sound interesting?

HEROIC.Com Launches $41 Million ICO To Power Personal Cybersecurity Using AI And The Blockchain
With early success in its recently launched ICO pre-sale, HEROIC.com aims to create the future of intelligent cybersecurity using blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI). The HEROIC.com ecosystem will provide a universal solution to protect against current and future cyber-attacks.
The HEROIC.com software not only intelligently protects against threats but also empowers and incentivizes users to help build the next generation of cybersecurity solutions through seamless contribution of anonymized threat data—the key component needed to fuel the advancement of threat detection and prevention with artificial intelligence and machine learning.
As cyber threats continue to grow in both frequency and sophistication, HEROIC.com will provide enterprise-level technology to individual users. Anyone who joins the network can both receive advanced threat protection and be compensated for their participation in the ecosystem.
“Our mission is to protect the world’s information—of all individuals—not just the biggest businesses,” said Chad Bennett, founder and CEO of HEROIC.com. “The reactive, centralized model of cybersecurity is completely outdated. The future of cybersecurity is decentralized and democratized—utilizing AI and the blockchain, which are better models to uncover threats and create the best possible solutions.”

Heroic Token ICO: HRO Coin For Artificial Intelligence Security?
As is clear for everyone to witness, the threat of cyber crime is at an all time high. This is because most of the modern cybersecurity measures that are used by companies are either too archaic or reactive. Additionally, when looked at more closely, we can see that a vast majority of threatening data is controlled by large corporations and governments, which makes it extremely difficult to develop new safety solutions.
Heroic Token HRO is an all new crypto security platform that takes a novel approach to threat protection via the use of its AI-powered core system. From a functional standpoint, we can see that it makes use of large data sets that are highly receptive and come loaded with P2P safety protocols.

Oftentimes in this cutthroat world, one emerging technology replaces another. Just think about your alarm clock, Rolodex, or camera. And as for fax machines and cassette players? No one’s shedding a tear over their demise. But sometimes different technologies can actually complement each other, rather than remove and replace.
Here we are in 2018, standing on the cusp of never-ending possibilities. We don’t know yet how far-reaching the implications of blockchain technology are, nor that of AI. And when these two powerhouse technologies collide, amazing things can happen (if not just a little creepy).
