Layer Protocol

TBA
7,574 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.

Feniks
Feniks.Finance is a new financial blockchain based system, created on a fundamentally new concept, capable of scaling its speed as needed and adding new functionality. Feniks.Finance can be used as an international banking system for information transfer and payment execution. The first version of Feniks.Finance will be able to handle payments and storage of users' funds. Namely, the banking transactions labeled in the SWIFT system with MT103 as payment sent and MT202 as a receipt and crediting of the payment to the account. The next step in the development of the system will be a 700 group of SWIFT operations, namely documentary transactions better known as guarantees and letters of credit. The introduction of the 500 group, that is, the operation with securities, suggests that an exchange will appear in our network.

SID Token
SID (Share Internet Data) is a peer-to-multi-peer decentralized internet sharing system that allows sharing internet from one person's smartphone to another nearby in an automated manner. One of our key missions through the SID project : “To lift as many people as possible out of poverty by means of giving the less fortunate a way to access the Internet”. Certain users will be able to get free Internet access by obtaining tokens in exchange of consuming advertising. Such obtained tokens can then be used to consume internet megabytes from other nearby Users in exchange for tokens OR Users will simply trade some of their tokens directly with other SID Users. Those trades will be done simply through a secured blockchain, on a public exchange to ensure full transparency with the control of the tokens and the control of sharing internet or not fully decentralized, meaning solely under end-user’s control through their post ITO (Initial Token Offering) token Wallet inside the SID App.
