Definition from https://novusphere.io/Afix Web Site
The Advanced File Index (“AFIX”) is a project of Novus utilizing the Novusphere blockchain based database and network intended to act as a layer to IPFS. This database allows us to build a refined index for any files that exist on the IPFS network while providing metadata about the file. Metadata is an arbitrary JSON object associated with the file provided when submitting the IPFS file hash to the index.
It’s necessary to stress this the most. The top priority is to create a tangible product that can be used by the typical consumer early on. As such, the blockchain and decentralization of that product comes second. The intentions are that rather the developers taking year/s to develop technology with nothing tangible to show creates a lot of uncertainty.
Novus will present a working product that you can feel and use so you don’t have to imagine our vision. Decentralization will be achieved through the development of the Novusphere blockchain.

April 21st, 2017 Summary
It is really early in the life of Atmos. The coin has only been actually available for a week, and is still trading near its ICO price. It is tough to find any coin these days that has not been pumped, and that is what drew me to Atmos.
There is a lot of work to do, the very basics are missing, but the devs and community on Bitcointalk are enthusiastic. It needs some housecleaning. The webpage is incomplete. The Bitcointalk thread needs to be updated. If the coin was a year old I would have not bothered reviewing it, but ATMS has not had enough time to succeed or fail yet.
There is a coin, obviously, and a blockchain, but the plan is not to sync up the project and the blockchain until the product is available for everyday commercial use. They are concentrating on the product before decentralizing it. This is backwards from most other projects, but makes sense to me.
Ohhh, I don’t know. Toss a coin into the air and call heads or tails. I wanted to review a coin unaffected by the mad pumps in March and April, but the only one I could find with active developers was a brand new one.
ATMS could be noticed tomorrow and go up 10x, or it could drop in value for a while until the working product is released. The community seems to believe there is value here, and a community can make a coin succeed. The price does seem a little high for the 100 million coins displayed on CoinMarketCap.com.
I have been informed the main developer for ATMS was previously involved with PureVids, which had one of the core team members leave with BTC which was supposed to be used for the project. The developer of ATMS is not the one who took off, but many people are still cautious.
I am not so sure about long term success, but that does not mean there won’t be short term gains. There are other people working on similar projects, and there will always be contention on a project like this related to copyrights. We will see what happens.
