//STORE enables these computing, economic, and governance primitives

Zero-fee settlement-layer enables

Zero-fee, peer-to-peer value transfer

Fast transactions

Scalable transactions

Democratic and 2/3 censorship resistant governance (one entity, one vote)

Tokenized Data enables

Data to be open and tradable

Data to be programmable by third party apps and devices

Data to have a monetary premium (like $STORE, $BTC, $ETH, $EOS, and gold)

Datacoin revenue to be shared with users, citizens, more

…which enables these high-level use cases

Zero-fee settlement-layer enabled

Tokenized data enabled (p2p cloud)

High-level Use Cases

Fast, zero-fee, programmable payments for the public internet

Voting on the global rules of a decentralized, zero-fee digital asset

Zero-fee, 2/3 censorship resistant value transfer of data as a digital asset

Voting on the global rules of decentralized, open, and programmable data

A web2 app developer opening APIs for other developers to build with (for $STORE)

An IoT device developer live streaming datasets for anyone to access (for $STORE)

A health care system making a prized and rare dataset available (for $STORE)

An autonomous car or drone opening its ML-ready, live data streams (for $STORE)

A local government streaming IoT device data for anyone to access (for $STORE)

(If we publish, we’ll award you with 100,000 $STORE – enough to compete in founding mining auctions.)

While STORE transactions are zero-fee for both end users and developers, if STORE is initially deployed as n ERC20 token on Ethereum, applicable gas fees apply on Ethereum. All settlement transactions on Ethereum incur gas fees. When the ERC20 STORE tokens are swapped with native STORE token tokens, transactions will be settled on the STORE network and at that time, zero-fee transactions are resumed.

Our founding team at Storecoin believes that the most durable, scalable, and global blockchain ecosystems of the future will have their roots in shared, open research. Before mainnet launch, Storecoin will open up its research across governance, economics, distribution, security, and consensus for public peer review. We're also offering research bounties to help our core team shape the protocol (more below).

How formal and enforceable roles prevent gridlock when miner, developer, and holder interests diverge
4. Reimagining Property, Rights, and Enforcement In The Blockchain Context
The foundation of markets are property rights and the enforcement of contracts. Without protected private property, market participants can’t lay claim to the goods they sell or buy in the market. Without contract enforcement, participants have to trust trading counterparts with no hope of recourse.

1. Announcing the STORE Governance Peer Review Process & Working Group
STORE is pleased to announce our first peer review and working group, focused on governance. Through this, we will bring our community together to learn about and provide input on a full spectrum of governance issues. This process will take place through public comments on prepared documents and via a public email group, a final spec generated from the working group, and ultimately culminate in the third STORE GovCon in 2021.

0. Join public peer review of Storecoin's proposed, decentralized governance of checks and balances
Storecoin intends to launch a decentralized governance of checks and balances. We are currently in the midst of a Public Peer Review process, inviting members of the blockchain community to review, discuss and refine our proposed governance system.

How STORE solves for both scalability and decentralization without sharding, off-chain transactions, level 2, etc.

At launch, we expect 5,000+ transactions per second and for throughput to increase as transaction demand increases.

STORE’s leader-free, BFT consensus algorithm BlockfinBFT, validates blocks in a pipelined process.

BlockfinBFT is a two-tier network of Validator nodes and Messagenodes, each with specific roles, assemble and validate blocks using a cryptographically secure process.

STORE’s mission is to become zero-fee payment infrastructure for the global internet. The Dynamic Proof of Stake (DyPoS) consensus engine powering the STORE infrastructure is designed to process thousands of transactions per second. When transactions arrive continuously but at lower rates, the consensus engine is capable of handling the incoming transactions, but how does it behave when transactions come in bursts? When STORE is used as the payment platform by merchants and app developers, the transactions are likely to come in bursts from multiple sources. So, we need to characterize the behavior of the consensus engine under such circumstances.
