//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.

STORE Engineering Roadmap

Q2 2017
BlockfinBFT research — STORE begins its research on BFT consensus algorithms to power its peer-to-peer global payments infrastructure.
Q3 2017
Dynamic Proof-of-Stake (DyPoS) — STORE designs DyPoS system with decentralized governance, economics, and security models.
Q4 2017
DyPoS prototype with Tendermint — STORE prototypes DyPoS components with the Tendermint to understand baseline consensus efficiency.
Q1 2018
BlockfinBFT internal review — Reviews security characteristics of the BlockfinBFT consensus algorithm. DyPoS achieves a burst-mode efficiency of 10.2K TPS.
Q2 2018
Prototype p2p secure data store — Prototypes the secure data store for blockchain persistence. Starts modeling economic incentives for BlockfinBFT.
Q3 2018
Resilience and throughput of p2p secure data store — Tests the resilience and throughput of the data store in a 220-node network hosted on AWS.
Q4 2018
STORE wallets and staking manager — Begins UX on STORE wallets and staking manager. Releases BlockfinBFT technical paper for internal peer review.
Q1 2019
Zero-fee cloud compute platform — Begins research on the zero-fee, p2p cloud compute platform that enables transforming data into programmable money.
Q2 2019
BlockfinBFT simulation — Implements a simulation of BlockfinBFT to demonstrate its safety and prove the correctness of the algorithm. Publishes the results on YouTube.
Q3 2019
Integrate BlockfinBFT with secure data store — Integrates the consensus and secure data store subsystems. Completes the design for the cloud compute platform.
Q4 2019
Know-Your-Voter — Begin design and implementation of the KYV miner self-verification and staking process. Prepare for the Testnet (Stone-Age) launch.
Q1 2020
Stone-Age release — Public launch of the STORE Testnet with a network of up to 50 Validators and 22 Messagenodes. Launch bug-bounty program.
Q1 2020
Fix bugs and security vulnerabilities — Prepare for the AlphaNet (Bronze-Age) release. Perform security audit and code reviews with third party security auditors.
Q2 2020
Bronze-Age release — Public launch of the STORE AlphaNet with a network of up to 70 Validators and 22 Messagenodes. Ongoing bug fixes and security audits.
Q4 2020
Iron-Age release — Public launch of the STORE BetaNet with a network of up to 102 Validators and 32 Messagenodes. Bug fixes and security audits continue.
Q2 2021
Staking auction — Prepare for the public launch of the STORE production network. Miners are elected with KYV process and staking auction winners will become dWorkers.
Q4 2021
Discovery release — Public launch of the STORE production network with up to 137 Validators and 43 Messagenodes.
