San Jose - November 16, 2017 (Investorideas.com newswire) Craig Sproule, a veteran developer, and the Metavine Lab responsible for the highly sophisticated Metavine Genesis™ product, have today unveiled a prototype for the next evolution of blockchain and the creation of fully decentralized applications called Crowd Machine.
Designed to marry the current fragmented components of the blockchain ecosystem currently holding back the mainstream growth of truly decentralised applications, Crowd Machine has packaged the critical pieces of the decentralized app development stack; scalable computation, file storage, external data, monetization, and payments bringing to market the world's first system to build decentralised apps of the future.
Crowd Machine is further enhanced by the fact that apps can be built on top of any blockchain; Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and more, and is supported by a zero-code environment where virtually anyone can build an app.
"The growth of the production blockchain ecosystem is slow because traditional development approaches don't enable applications to be built at a pace that meets market demand," said Craig Sproule, CEO of Crowd Machine.
"The ICO market is awash with white papers promising applications to be delivered in unachievable timeframes. Crowd Machine delivers the technology to allow those promises to be met," continued Sproule.
Three essential components form Crowd Machine:
Fred Ehrsam, ex-Coinbase co-founder, who examined the state of the decentralized application development stack and whether all the parts of the stack were currently available to create a fully decentralized app in this Medium blog - said "when the answer to that question is "yes!", the ecosystem can rapidly create decentralized applications and experience explosive mainstream growth."
Crowd Machine is the first and only full stack available to integrate with existing smart contracts and extend the functionality of those contracts, both on-chain and off-chain to deliver superior robustness.
The Crowd AppStudio has been in the works for a number of years, and battle tested by Fortune 500 companies; General Electric, AON Hewitt, KONE, Anthem and Pacific Western Bank as examples. What used to cost several hundreds of thousands of dollars to use, will now be open to developers and non-developers alike for free, making code a thing of the past and a serious competitor to building dApps on Solidity. There is a short video that is available here.
To prove the value proposition, Crowd Machine is accepting proposals from the public to build out their ICO decentralized app for free. Submissions can be submitted through the website: https://www.crowdmachine.com

About Crowd Machine
Crowd Machine is revolutionizing the blockchain and decentralized applications sector with technology from Metavine Lab. Coming out of stealth in November 2017, the project involves three core components. The Crowd App Studio (Previously "Metavine's Genesis) offers the most comprehensive high productivity platform as a service available today, including complete application lifecycle management functionality. Crowd Share is a GitHub-like repository where app creators can post components of their apps; where creators are paid if their source code is used. Crowd Computer, a decentralized cloud computer planned for release in Q3 2018; this will be used to run the decentralized apps built in Crowd App Studio.

Proposed Listing of Warrants
The Company further announces it is taking steps to seek to list for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") the Warrants issued pursuant to the Offering (the "Listing"). The Company anticipates that the Listing will be effective on or after March 15, 2018 when the hold period expires. In preparation for the Listing, the Company has entered into a warrant indenture with Computershare Trust Company of Canada, as warrant agent.
Sweden Data Centre
On October 23, 2017 and October 25, 2017, HIVE entered into legally binding letter agreements with its largest shareholder Genesis under which the Company will finance the construction of the first and second phases of digital currency mining rigs at a data centre in Sweden (the "Sweden Data Centre"). Please refer to the Company's October 23, 2017 and October 25, 2017 news releases for more details.
The Sweden Data Centre will consist of newly constructed GPU mining rigs using the latest hardware, custom-designed by Genesis. Each phase is expected to represent approximately 6.8 MW of electricity consumption for a total of 13.6 MW in Sweden. HIVE and Genesis are evaluating expansion potential in Sweden as well as Iceland. In Iceland, HIVE's current operating facilities represent 3.8 MW in electricity consumption. Completion of the Sweden Data Centre is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, Exchange approval.
