Freecoin is a versatile version of the bitcoin framework, supporting language bindings and multiple currencies. It aims to share code with the original bitcoin implementation, while cleaning up its architecture. Freecoin strips down the backend bitcoin code to its essentials, while moving external tasks to language bindings (primarily Python). It also adds the possibility to customize the genesis block, allowing the creation of new currencies.
BitWrk is creating a marketplace where participants can buy or sell computing power like stocks in a stock exchange, using Bitcoin as currency. The client software can be integrated with existing, compute-intensive applications (e.g. rendering software), creating a big boost by harnessing the combined computing power of the BitWrk network. Sellers earn money by putting their hardware to work, offering an alternative to Bitcoin mining.
Ixmon is a terminal based reader and monitor for RSS, Atom, YouTube, Vine, Instragram, Twitter, Gmail, weather, stocks, cryptocurrency, and more. Hundreds of data sources can be comfortably tracked and special syntax URLs such as stock://AAPL or coin://bitcoin allow you to extend the capabilities of RSS and put all this data in an interface you can search or quickly navigate through using VIM-style keyboard shortcuts. Items can be sorted by time or media type and network resources are conserved by using an exponential decay polling algorithm.
