Layer Protocol

TBA
9,373 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.

REPU
The REPU system (abbreviated from English – "reputation") is a revolutionary project that allows you to completely rethink the way social networks are perceived. REPU is a rating and feedback system based on decentralized blockchain technology. Technology allows you to completely replace the system of “likes” with the rating - both for users and for companies. The rating, subsequently, can be used as an assessment tool in various areas of the individual’s life - starting with professional skills, financial stability, and ending with all possible aspects of behavior and interaction with the public.
