1879 ELECTRICITY

In October 1879, nobody would’ve guessed that the world was about to change forever. Edison had already come up with the incandescent bulb with a carbon filament. As a result, the American inventor created a system of electric lighting—reliable and simple by design. Within a year the invention became a successful commercial product, and by the start of the 20th century, electricity lit up not only the homes, but also the streets of all major European cities.

1895 RADIO

On the 7th of May, 1895, Alexander Popov first revealed his invention to Russian physicists and naval officers. A year later, Guglielmo Marconi received a patent for a radio set. And so, the greatest form of mass media and communication of the coming 20th Century was born, though the world knew little of it at first. It was only two years later that the debate regarding its inventor—Popov or Marconi—heated up.

1928 TV

In 1928, engineer Vladimir Zworykin sold the first model of his invention for $75. Back then, this was equal to two-month’s wages for the average American, so the exotic invention didn’t exactly light up the market. A year later, a company named “Visionette” released the first the first serial television receiver; its screen was the size of a postage stamp. Few contemplated that someday TVs would be found in every household, or that they could be the size of entire rooms.

1936 COMPUTER

The year is 1936. The world wasn’t supposed to know about Englishman Alan Turing’s new computing machine. After all, it was used not just for solving difficult math problems, but also to calculate flight trajectories and decode enemy messages. However, the secret wasn’t kept for long; as just five years later, in the heat of World War II, the German Konrad Zuse created the first programmable computer based on Turing’s work.

1957 THE INTERNET

In 1957, secret research began in the United States on the possibility of using computer networks as a new tool of information transmission. Four years later, the chief of the research group, Joseph Licklider, published the “Galactic Network”, describing the future of the Internet. However, during the first data transmission in 1969, the topic was of little interest to most—though this is in part due to the fact that the transmission was the first two letters of the word “login.” Typical consumers were only able to appreciate the invention only a quarter of a century later, when the Internet started to become a means of communication and research.

2008 BLOCKCHAIN

In 2008, blockchain technology was developed, giving people the ability for secure online transactions. Its creator, also the founder of bitcoin (the first form of cryptocurrency) was the person or group of people known as Satoshi Nakamoto. Cryptography enthusiasts understood the significance of this creation, and it wasn’t until bitcoin’s exponential rise made it a global sensation that the wider public became familiar with it as well.

2017 СRYPTOSYSTEM

The year of the launch of PLATINCOIN, the newest cryptosystem. It was founded on the basis of the hybrid technologies of blockchain: Proof-of-Work and the revolutionary Proof-of-Stake. The innovative platform is connected with the social network named PLC Network, a crowdfunding platform named PLC Business, an online store named PLC Market, and the educational platform PLC Academy. PLATINCOIN is already here to change the world and overturn our preconceptions about marketing, business, finance, and the market as a whole. Not too many people on a global scale know about this, however…
