Layer Protocol

TBA
12,547 Views
The decentralized reputation protocol for the global sharing economy, built on the blockchain.

Even the bigger players in the sharing economy today have no way of knowing a new user's value before their first transaction. Bad actors moving from one service to the next one are a huge expense in the industry, and these costs get passed on to other users through increased fees.

There is currently no way of sharing user reputation data between asset sharing companies. Why would Airbnb even give away their user reputation data to competitors or let's say Uber? While more than 72% of the US population has used at least one sharing economy service, the number for Uber or Airbnb is less than 25%, meaning there is a vast amount of reputation data shared on all sides, and it can drive down operation costs significantly.

Layer Protocol aims to resolve the issue, and will first be adopted by Spin, a stationless e-scooter platform. Live in over 50 markets in the US with over 1M rides in less than a year. Layer Protocol will be Spin's base layer for reputation and rewards. Users will be rewarded when their reputation increases.

January 15th
Core


Layer Nodes Stake: Smart contracts to manage staking of Layer Nodes.


Utilities


Sample Application: Start demo application that based on developed SDKs.


Layer Nodes


Staking: Running a valid node will require a LRX stake to be put up;

Testing and Optimization: Continual optimization of Layer Nodes around performance, gas costs, and security.
February 1st 2018
Core


Identity Match API: The API matches two identities without user claim by trusted identity signer. This fixes the issue of unclaimed identities lacking data, or users repeatedly signing up to perform bad behavior.


Utilities


Sample Application: Complete, open source, and deploy a sample application for viewing data on Layer Protocol.


Layer Nodes


Testing and Optimization: Continual optimization of Layer Nodes around performance, gas costs, and security.

Digiwills
Digiwills is a service based on a smart contract that aims to ensure that your digital assets are not lost or fall into the wrong hands. Thanks to the blockchain technology, with this innovative service it will be possible to safely leave all your digital assets. Such as: Access to Cryptographic Portfolios, Exchange, bank accounts, emails and passwords of your social networks and everything that only you have access to. With this service we can leave everything in order for our families to enjoy our digital assets. Decentralized The service will be based on an smart contract in the blockchain, this means that no entity or person will have access or control to the data of the users. Only the users themselves and the successors will have access, once the information is sent to them. Reliable The data will be stored in the blockchain, encrypted with the owner's key. Once in the blockchain there will be no way to alter or read them without the owner’s key. Safe Being a decentralized service, the data will be replicated throughout the network so losing them will be impossible. How it works On the platform, the user will be able to create an account where they can save sensitive data, such as: users and passwords, details of bank accounts or any information they wish to be grouped in blocks (Wills), in the blockchain in a secure way, to these blocks the user can assign successors which will receive the information contained in the block (Will). These blocks (Wills) will be encrypted using the unique key of each user, therefore only the owner will have access to said information and his assigned successors once he meets certain criteria. The service will consume an amount of the Digiwills Token (DGW) daily, as a condition to keep your data retained. If account run out of funds, the system will send the data to successors.
