About the $STORE digital asset and the STORE public blockchain

About

STORE is bringing Cloud 2.0 to the world with a zero-fee cryptocurrency and checks and balances governance.

A crowdsourced state-of-compute score for SpaceX's Starlink internet and a //Second Governance test network for a future ratified STORE decentralized democracy are the next two major milestones for the zero-fee protocol.

Technology Overview

STORE is a blockchain-powered computing platform that relies on a novel consensus mechanism (BlockfinBFT) to provide leaderless, asynchronous, and Byzantine fault tolerant validation of zero-fee settlement transactions. BlockFinBFT addresses scalability, security, communication, and decentralization challenges in high performant cloud and edge computing environments with a multi-tier, asynchronous, parallel, and pipelined BFT consensus algorithm.

STORE Highlights

Leading technology

BlockFinBFT

A scalable, two-tier Byzantine fault tolerant consensus algorithm that decentralizes cloud and edge computing by enabling an adaptive 5,000+ transactions per second.

Sound, zero-fee digital currency

Low Inflation

Credibly low, 2% inflation (20MM $STORE) incentivizes miners – collectively a new type of Amazon AWS – to secure zero-fee transactions.

A decentralized democracy

1 Entity, 1 Vote

Miners have a single vote, no matter the size of their stake. Once ⅔ trust is reached on a one entity, one vote democracy, voting begins.

Will be a leading staking protocol

high-yield Staking

STORE's non-compounding inflationary monetary policy is expected to give STORE industry-leading real yields for
staking.

First Treasury incentivizes
perpetual growth

A long-term, predictable decentralized monetary system unlike any other

Governance is endowed with 25% of the block reward, granting the protocol and it's Cloud Markets perpetual funding to innovate across payments, compute, web services, layer 2, security and more.

Developers will build on STORE Cloud because it's more profitable and innovative than building on AWS

Secure, scalable, low cost and high-peformance decentralized compute

STORE will offer comparable performance to AWS while also being ⅓ BFT, providing sufficient security for developers to issue their own digital assets on top of the STORE blockchain, driving new revenues. These assets will drive new revenues

About $STORE (the token)

The STORE Cloud is secured by the $STORE token. STORE relies on a token economic structure where miners secure both the zero-fee settlement layer and the layer 2 computing environment on top. Developers pay miners $STORE for all decentralized web services.

[2] Authorized Supply means the $STORE tokens that have been authorized by STORE Labs, Inc. to be issued for the purpose of growing the $STORE ecosystem over 100-year and 1,000-year periods. There are 1 billion authorized $STORE. New $STORE may be authorized in the future but only through a governance vote. As of today, it's expected the first Authorization attempts will begin in 2032-2033 where, by 2034, STORE will need to gain governance approval to continue using a maximum of 20MM inflationary block rewards for protocol security. Tokens from the 1 billion Authorized Supply that have already been contractually obligated are called Allocated Supply.
