Stratis Projects is a information website about projects which are running around the Stratisplatform.
The projects use either the Stratis ICO Platform / the Stratis Smart Contracts + Sidechains / Stratis DLT or utilizing the Stratis Code (Fork).
No, this is an unofficial website.
It is managed and updated by a community-member of the Stratisplatform.
This website is just a information site for the current/upcoming/finished ICOs/STOs around Stratis or Stratis Forks.
We don't give a financial advice for an ICO/STO.
The Stratis ICO Platform is a secure crowdfunding platform that allows projects to raise funds for their ICO. It is the first blockchain application available on the Azure Marketplace. The platform simplifies the crowdfunding process and eliminates the opportunity for scam addresses to be posted to steal investors’ funds. A project running an ICO can deploy the Stratis ICO Platform to Azure, customise the design to suit their project and securely accept funds for their ICO. The platform is blockchain agnostic. This means that a project using the Stratis ICO Platform is not limited in the nature of its coin or token offering: they can, for example, release an Ethereum based token or a coin native to their own blockchain once the ICO period is over.
In this way, Stratis Group Ltd has not limited the potential adoption of the Stratis ICO Platform.

A smart contract is a piece of software run on computers operating the full nodes of a cryptocurrency network. Once a smart contract is deployed to a blockchain, a copy of it is contained in every node. The smart contract code is run by these nodes whenever the smart contract is used. Stratis’s blockchain is Proof of Stake, so any smart contracts which are deployed to the Stratis mainchain will be run by the computers operating Stratis Core wallets staking the Stratis blockchain. Stratis also has sidechains. Any smart contracts deployed to a sidechain will be run by the computers operating the nodes of that sidechain. This will address the congestion problem which faces smart contract offering Blockchain as a Service cryptocurrencies.

A sidechain is a blockchain which is connected to a parent blockchain (the blockchain to which the sidechains are pegged but which is itself not pegged to another parent blockchain is referred to as the mainchain). This is done by pegging their respective coins to one another. A sidechain lets a user have their own blockchain with any consensus rules and characteristics (i.e. transactions per second, blocktime etc.) that they require but it is linked to the Stratis mainchain in such a way that they benefit from any enhancements made on the Stratis mainchain.

The Stratis Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) is a service provided by Stratis Group Ltd which is targeted at enterprises and is offered as a part of their Blockchain as a Service. The DLT allows a customer of Stratis Group Ltd to set up a permissioned cryptocurrency with a valueless unit of account using a Proof of Authority (PoA) consensus protocol.

A fork of the code is a fork of the basic software of the Stratis cryptocurrency. This basic software is the Full Node software. Full Nodes talk to each other to come to some agreement about the state of the cryptocurrency they are supporting ("state" being which coins are where, what rules the crypto is following and so on). When you download Stratis Core and run it, you are running a Full Node which has been told to communicate with other Stratis Full Nodes. However, because it is open source software, someone can take the open source Full Node and make it support a new cryptocurrency by making it point to other Full Nodes which are also supporting this other currency.
So this is what someone does when they create a new cryptocurrency by forking the Stratis codebase:
An Initial Coin Offering (ICO) or Initial Currency Offering is a type of funding using cryptocurrencies. Mostly the process is done by crowdfunding but private ICO's are becoming more common. In an ICO, a quantity of cryptocurrency is sold in the form of "tokens" ("coins") to speculators or investors, in exchange for legal tender or other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum or Stratis. The tokens sold are promoted as future functional units of currency if or when the ICO's funding goal is met and the project launches. In some cases like Stratis the tokens are required to use the system for its purposes.
A Security Token Offering (STO) is a relatively new way of raising funds for a start-up. It has some similarities to a traditional business that is going public through an Initial Public Offering (IPO). In an STO a company issues security tokens to investors. Security tokens can be described as asset-backed IOUs and they can be considered legally binding investment contracts that give investors access to a share of the company, a monthly dividend or a voice in the business decision-making process.
A token or a coin is a cryptocurrency unit issued during an ICO. Buying certain amount of tokens allows the investors to crowdfund the project and ICO holders to raise funds. Every ICO issues a fixed amount of tokens/coins meant to be used as a potential source of profit once it goes on exchanges and/or as the currency used inside the project (purchases, service payments, etc).
Whitepaper is an official document usually issued by new blockchain projects before their ICO informing the reader about the new technology, methodology, product or service being launched.
A whitelist ICO means that you have to register in advance to participate in the ICOs, which are usually hallmarks of popular ICOs that have a limited number of coins to offer.
KYC stands for ‘Know Your Customer’. It refers to the verification processes and safeguards that are implemented by the recipient of an application to validate the applicant’s identity. In simple terms, it is one of the main tools used by a person or company to prove whether the other party is who they claim to be.
