How the Storecoin zero-fee public blockchain evolves from p2p payments into p2p cloud computing (with datacoins)

The Storecoin project is laser-focused first on securing its zero-fee settlement layer. Our team is researching and building this scalable and decentralized zero-fee payments infrastructure now.

As security with scalability is proven, Storecoin will open up miner (dWorker) participation to anyone in the world. From there, the secure settlement layer can evolve into a p2p cloud platform for the decentralization of data and the creation of new, zero-fee tokenized apps (tApps).

The era of zero-fee, p2p computing with datacoins will be born.

Throughout this evolution, Storecoin’s governance moves from informal (but present), to semi-formal with voting, to fully ratified and formal.

Once ratified – estimated to be between 2021-2022 – Storecoin will be fully decentralized.

Storecoin’s mission is to become zero-fee payment infrastructure for the global internet. The Dynamic Proof of Stake (DyPoS) consensus engine powering the Storecoin 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 Storecoin 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.

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 Storecoin Governance Peer Review Process & Working Group
Storecoin 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 Storecoin GovCon in 2021.
