Brooklyn, United States - February 13, 2018 /NewsNetwork/ —

Current Media has announced a revolutionary new streaming platform powered by Blockchain technology. By consolidating popular media networks into one place, Current already provides more than 200,000 users with a more convenient search and discovery experience. The platform allows users to be rewarded for streaming content from their favorite networks.

Using Current, users can stream content from Spotify, YouTube, SoundCloud, and more, and get rewarded for it. Users are able to get paid to stream their content with an all in one personalized experience.

Current, which counts tech heavyweight Mark Cuban among its initial investors, is creating a digital token that uniquely rewards a person’s time, money spent, and data shared during the media streaming experience. Once tokens have been earned, they can be spent on a range of products, services and in-platform advertising.

The platform combines behavioral data points surrounding the types, times and topics played by each person across multiple networks. This allows for better recommendations than what is available on any single network on its own.

Current recently elected to cancel its upcoming public token sale because they claim to have already received the equivalent of $150 Million USD worth of interest from private backers looking to participate in the private sale. “The amount of interest in our token sale has been nothing short of extraordinary,” Current co-founder and CEO Dan Novaes said in a public statement.

One of the primary benefits of the system is the fact that it’s powered by Blockchain technology. This ensures that there is fully transparent accounting, allowing for an instant valuation of time, data and attention.

The Current ecosystem is designed to evolve over time and will continue to provide the best streaming platform for its users. Current is the next generation of media streaming and consolidates the best content and features from the most popular media networks in an all-in-one experience.

Current states that: “The protocol rewards people for their time streaming, ad impressions and personal data shared. Launching initially on the Current platform, the protocol will open for developers and third-party providers to utilize.”

Anyone can earn CRNC, as it’s a simple, easy process whereby participants stream their favorite content through the Current Platform.

Full details of the platform and the launch can be found on the URL above.

Glitches or not, Nissan starts testing semi-autonomous rides

Feb 25, 2018

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Starting next month, Nissan Motor Co. is testing on regular roads what it calls "a robo-vehicle mobility service." Called Easy Ride, it uses a cell-phone app to book semi-autonomous driven rides. But Easy Ride won't necessarily be easy if poor internet connections mean it won't work at all. Nissan says that feedback from the 300 people who have signed up to try out Easy Ride will be used to fine-tune the app. The Japanese automaker hopes to roll it out as a commercial service in the early 2020s. Details, including pricing, are undecided. The service was developed...

Texas governor accepts recommendation, spares inmate

Feb 25, 2018

HUNTSVILLE, Texas — Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Thursday spared the life of a convicted killer shortly before the man's scheduled execution for masterminding the fatal shootings of his mother and brother. In sparing the life of Thomas "Bart" Whitaker about an hour before he was scheduled for lethal injection, Abbott accepted the state parole board's rare clemency recommendation. Whitaker's father, Kent, also was shot in the 2003 plot at the family's suburban Houston home but survived and led the effort to save his son from execution. Abbott commuted the sentence to life without parole. "I'm thankful not for me...

Science Says: European art scene began with Neanderthals

Feb 25, 2018

NEW YORK — From the murky depths of Spanish caves comes a surprising insight: Neanderthals created art. That's been proposed before, but experts say two new studies finally give convincing evidence that our evolutionary cousins had the brainpower to make artistic works and use symbols. The key finding: New age estimates that show paintings on cave walls and decorated seashells in Spain were created long before our species entered Europe. So there's no way Homo sapiens could have made them or influenced Neanderthals to merely copy their artwork. Until now, most scientists thought all cave paintings were the work of...

Superagers' youthful brains offer clues to keeping sharp

Feb 25, 2018

WASHINGTON — It's pretty extraordinary for people in their 80s and 90s to keep the same sharp memory as someone several decades younger, and now scientists are peeking into the brains of these "superagers" to uncover their secret. The work is the flip side of the disappointing hunt for new drugs to fight or prevent Alzheimer's disease. Instead, "why don't we figure out what it is we might need to do to maximize our memory?" said neuroscientist Emily Rogalski, who leads the SuperAging study at Northwestern University in Chicago. Parts of the brain shrink with age, one of the reasons...

Scientists in Germany improve malaria drug production

Feb 25, 2018

BERLIN — Scientists in Germany who developed a new way to make a key malaria drug several years ago said Wednesday they have come up with a technique to make the process even more efficient, which should increase global access and reduce the cost. The new procedure refines a method developed in 2012 at the Max Planck Institute to use the waste product from the production of artemisinin, which is extracted from a plant known as sweet wormwood, to produce the drug itself. That involved a new machine that could convert about 40 percent of the waste acid into artemisinin...
