August 14th, 2017 – Version 2
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.

August 14th, 2017 Summary (v2)
I did the first summary one week into the life of Atmos, and it is more clear now where the project is going, though it is difficult at first to put all the pieces together. If I understand it correctly…
ATMS is a temporary currency forked from BlackCoin which will be migrated to a new blockchain called Novusphere at some point in the future.
AFIX is an application built on top of the Novusphere blockchain and allows access to the information stored there through a browser.
There is a lot of work to do, but the devs and community on Bitcointalk are enthusiastic. It needs some housecleaning. The webpage is very basic. There is no whitepaper and it is hard to tell from the roadmap what is complete and what is still being worked on. I’d prefer Slack, but the Discord channel was surprisingly active with thousands of members.
It is still hard to tell exactly what this project plans on doing, but I am going to guess they are going to let people upload and share files (movies, music, books, etc) of any kind. You may want to consider the legalities of this when making a decision to invest.
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.
Many people love these projects where they can get access to content for free, so I am sure it will get some investors. I am not so sure about long term success, but that does not mean there won’t be 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.
