Thought is a blockchain and AI start-up, backed by Harrisburg University of Science and Technology.

Thought is fundamentally changing the way data is processed by embedding AI into every small piece of data. This makes otherwise ‘dumb’ information smart. Data becomes able to act on its own, eliminating the need for external applications, and thus makes data processing faster and cheaper.

Thought Token (THT) Sale Pricing Info
• Softcap $10MM USD, Hardcap $50MM USD
• Private sale (FINISHED)
• Pre-ICO (LIVE) 15% discount, price $.122 USD, minimum $100 USD - (start March 1st 2018)
• Public sale (Main ICO), 5-10% discount, price of $.144 USD, no minimum - (start March 14th 2018, Pi Day!)
• Accepting ETH only


By 2025 the global data sphere will grow to 163 Zettabytes

The current computational paradigm is not scalable or intelligent enough to handle this massive influx of information.

Nuances will redefine data and applications altogether.

Thought’s technology infuses every bit of data with AI to create the Nuance. Each Nuance becomes its own agent with the power to take action without the constraints of an application. Nuances completely change the landscape of big data, system integration and artificial intelligence as we know it.

Thought’s revolutionary blockchain fabric enables AI

Thought Fabric is a new, better technology stack. Nuances exist within an infinitely scaleable network that allows each individual bit of artificial intelligence to interact forming an intelligent system. Blockchain technology ensures that every nuance is secure and attributable.

Thought creates a new, universal intelligence technology

Thought Nuances working within Fabric exist as electronic neurons within a globally distributed brain. Systems that were once incompatible become integrated. Disparate processes and infrastructure become unified, all within a technology platform that’s secure, scalable and natively extensible.
Token Sale



Thought tokens are required to run Nuances on the Thought Fabric. Tokens are earned by owners of Fabric nodes in exchange for the evaluation and routing of Nuances. Tokens will also be awarded for hardware integration development, AI model development and access to data repositories.

Thought Network Patented Technology Brings Equality to the AI and Data Industries

Artificial Intelligence is everywhere

Have you ever wondered how one day you searched “Best Smartphone of 2018” on Google and the next day you were bombarded with ads from smartphone companies? Or how watching a video on the ‘World’s Best Beaches’ on YouTube inevitably leads to plethora of holiday ads being shown on sites you are currently viewing?

As you might already understand, there aren’t millions of employees working at YouTube who personally follow you and suggest to you the most exciting videos or people monitoring your searches on Google to show you the most relevant advertisements. It is all done by computer coding and algorithms, or in other terms, by Artificial Intelligence, or AI.

Dear Community.

So far, from the private pre-sale we have raised almost $1.5M, which fluctuates due to the constantly changing ETH price. This is growing daily as we continue to approve people for KYC, under SEC rules, and we are getting faster at approvals. We are talking to a number of high net worth investors on the Private Sale side, and still wrapping up talks which are taking longer than normal due to the changing circumstances in the legislation of the SEC regarding ICOs and applied rules on securities investments and taxation. Since the Forbes article, interest in what we are doing here at thought has increased dramatically, which is also a positive circumstance.
The MVP will be released soon, and we are all working hard, especially with the knowledge that you are all behind us 100%. If anything, it makes 20 hour days worth it. In addition, besides all of the advertising we already have out and positive PR, we are redesigning the website and extending the ICO to the end of April to give ourselves the best chance at raising awareness of our AI platform.

Harrisburg University is supporting us in every way and we are very grateful for their support, too. Our university is not as old or endowed as the bigger universities, and this ICO will mean more than bringing great AI blockchain tech to the forefront, but it will impact thousands of people who work and study here at Harrisburg University and train a whole new generation of people in the latest advances in tech and development - creating a 'Center of Excellence' as such.

The development of this platform, which has taken me 10 years and 3 patents to construct is finally coming together. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being a part of it. Please help spread the word, thank thank you for being a part of our Community!!

Kindest regards, Professor Andrew J Hacker

THOUGHT, The World’s First Public Mineable AI Blockchain, Launches ICO

“In the few past decades, humans have advanced in technology at an exponential pace. It is incredible to witness. But all of these innovations have also caused an explosion of data. Everything ranging from social media to human genome research generates massive amounts of data,” says CEO and Founder of Thought, Professor Andrew Hacker.

“Currently, all data is created equal until it is sorted through and categorized by special algorithms. Data is inherently inanimate — it only becomes useful when it is processed by an application. The massive growth in data creation is adding up to a landscape littered with too much information and applications, and insufficient intelligence to handle all of it,” explains Professor Hacker, who has been granted a US patent for his innovative concept of Smart Data.

By combining the application layer into the data layer, Thought’s Smart Data becomes aware of its origin, knows its purpose, and is able to act on its own to accomplish its goal. It eliminates the need for traditional applications that traditionally make it possible for data to move between devices, cutting costs and complexity associated with these applications while also increasing speed.
