There’s something amazing happening at the fringes of computer science right now… what’s happening is something called “decentralized computing”. You can call it blockchain technology, many people do, but at the very core, what’s really happening is all about decentralized computing.
There are thousands and thousands of people around the world building applications and platforms powered by decentralized computing and the reason why this is so important is that decentralized computing consolidates mechanisms and functions under one user experience, which wasn’t practical or possible before, not the way the internet and software systems are presently engineered. It also creates a whole new set of functions that didn’t previously exist.
The easiest way to explain what this blockchain revolution is all about, is to simply understand that we are upgrading the internet, we are upgrading software systems, with these new set of functions powered by decentralized computing.
SingularDTV is laying the groundwork for a decentralized entertainment industry. Through its ecosystem of 11 modules, from a Rights Management Gateway to a Decentralized Distribution Portal, SingularDTV is empowering creators with tools to create and manage projects from development to distribution.
SingularDTV will remain in stealth mode until Q2 2017 when module #1 (Rights Management Gateway) will be released.

SingularDTV partnership with INFURA.io:
INFURA takes care of Ethereum node hosting, scaling and securing, it could be called a nodes cluster as a service. From the perspective of the end-user INFURA is invisible and simply saves them from running a node locally which helps the SingularDTV Light Wallet user to avoid running their own Ethereum node (keeping full copy of the ethereum Blockchain) while using the Wallet.

SingularDTV Produced and Original Content Release Date:
SingularDTV original content will not be released before module #11 - the Decentralized Entertainment Portal is launched. Module #11, is scheduled to launch in Q4, 2017.
The decision to not release SingularDTV original content before Module #11 is ready is a strategic one. It is SingularDTV’s intention to maximize revenue potential for its original content and releasing this content on a centralized distribution portal not only goes against its ethos but does not directly help its decentralized ecosystem grow.
SingularDTV Development Roadmap:
This roadmap outlines the schedule for the construction of the complete SingularDTV ecosystem over the next 2 years. During this time, 11 modules will be released to lay the foundation for a decentralized entertainment industry, from development to distribution. Each module is the hub for a decentralized application (DAPP) or portion of an application. When the use of these modules is combined, a powerful synergistic experience occurs for the user that empowers creators and their projects from development to distribution.
Module #1: Rights Management Gateway (Launch in June/July, 2017)
Module #2: not made public
Module #3: not made public
Module #4: not made public
Module #5: not made public
Module #6: not made public
Module #7: not made public
Module #8: Fiat to SNGLS gateway
Module #9: not made public
Module #10: not made public
Module #11: Decentralized Distribution Portal (Launch in Q4, 2017)
SNGLS tokens are multifaceted in the sense they represent 4 primary things; property, utility, income/rewards and fungibility. With regard to property, SNGLS are an expression of IP inside a programmable token. The IP SNGLS represent is derived from SingularDTV’s proprietary content - the modules/apps and original content we produce. SNGLS is also a utility token in the sense that you need SNGLS to operate many of the modules. Additionally, When Ethereum’s protocol is upgraded to allow for ERC20 tokens to be the gas that pushes transactions through the network, the SNGLS token will achieve absolute utility because it will be the SNGLS token that is the gas that pushes all the smart contracts through the SingularDTV network. Thirdly, SNGLS manage the flow of income and rewards generated through consumption and participation in the ecosystem and that are distributed to token holders . Lastly, the most known and understood attribute of SNGLS is that it is fungible
SingularDTV Token Smart Contract Address is:
SNGLS, like all other ERC20 tokens, are handled by their respective smart contracts.
When there's a transfer of SNGLS tokens from one address to another, a function on the token contract named "transfer(_to, _value)" has been called. Calling a function means sending a transaction to the token smart contract. That's the reason we can see SNGLS "were routed through" the contract. All token transfers are actually transactions sent to that contract address.
Pleae DO NOT send SNGLS tokens or ETH to SingularDTV Token Smart Contract Address: 0xaec2e87e0a235266d9c5adc9deb4b2e29b54d009
as by doing so they will be lost forever!
Distribution will be completely peer to peer. Users will be able to opt-in to "seed" the content they stream, and in turn help the whole SingularDTV ecosystem. In later versions SingularDTV can have incentives built in the platform. At launch, there will be subsidize content seeding with private servers (nodes), on behalf of content providers. This can later be sold a service. At no point in time does a client (node) hold the entire SingularDTV library.
