//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 Milestones

November 2019 SourceWe dropped the "coin". We now have new name for our blockchain (STORE), a new site ( http://storelabs.org), and new name for the organization helping bring $STORE to full decentralization (STORE Labs, Inc.). Source
October 2019 SourceCreated the governance spec for Fault Tolerant Trust or "Trust-Your-Network (TYN)" where participants in an economic network can derive trust without using any centralized or third party entities. TYN can also be used for 2/3 fault tolerant voting. Source
September 2019 SourceSTORE releases its launch plan from zero-fee settlement layer (Stone Age) to decentralized democracy (Discovery Age) to p2p cloud (Revolutionary Age). Source
August 2019 SourceSTORE releases its Cost Per Thousand Transaction (CPT) research quantifying the costs of centralized and decentralized cloud computing. Source
July 2019 SourceSTORE conducts its first Ask Me Anything (AMA), this one with Messari. The project also announces its open source governances Source
June 2019 SourceSTORE releases its Litepaper, a 32 page high-level research document outlining the project Source
May 2019 SourceOver 43% of the current STORE circulating supply pre-registers to stake and secure the STORE public blockchain Source
Apr 2019 SourceSTORE launches its Research Division releasing specs on its address schema, its staking economics, and compares BlockfinBFT to other consensus algorithms like Tendermint Source
Mar 2019 SourceSTORE releases its long-term plans for a zero-fee, p2p cloud computing platform with data-backed tokens (datacoins) Source
Feb 2019 SourceSTORE joins the Messari Disclosure Registry; commits to fixed and long-term emission schedules for its treasury; the first simulation of our BlockfinBFT BFT consensus algorithm is released Source
Jan 2019 SourceThe governance peer review mailing list grows to 70+ Source
Dec 2018 SourceSTORE releases the first version of its zero-fee computing platform for internal peer reviewSource
Nov 2018 SourceSTORE releases its governance of checks and balances for public peer reviewSource
Oct 2018 SourceFirst version of the STORE Wallet is releasedSource
Aug 2018 SourceCommunity members are wearing $STORE tees in 56+ countries and our Telegram grows to 2,000+Source
Jul 2018 SourceSTORE releases a new inflation plan to be in alignment with sound money of gold and BTCSource
Jun 2018 SourceTesting on BlockfinBFT grows to 220 validator nodes and 40 message nodesSource
Apr 2018 SourceSTORE’s consensus engine BlockfinBFT becomes patent pending as to prevent malicious hard forksSource
Mar 2018 SourceSTORE pushes the Tendermint consensus to 169,00 transactions per second with 8 nodesSource
Jan 2018 SourceSTORE’s second milestone-based sale ends, adding 200+ wallets and $1.3 MM of Treasury Source
