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.
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.
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
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.

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.

About $STORE Monetary Policy
STORE brings together the principles of sound money with credibly low and non-compounding inflation - up to 20 Million $STORE per year - to secure zero-fee decentralized computing. //First Treasury is the decentralized monetary system for the STORE Cloud.

Token Usage: Before mainnet, $STORE incentivizes //Second Governance. After mainnet, $STORE is a payment, staking, and governance token. Once Decentralized Democracy is ratified, STORE can upgrade itself into decentralized web services where developers pay miners for compute, bandwidth, storage, and more. Once web services are provided, developers can mint their own tokens on top of the STORE Cloud.

 Allocated Supply means the number of $STORE tokens that are contractually obligated to be created and distributed to $STORE owners. These tokens are not yet circulating and cannot be resold. (Once they are created and distributed to $STORE owners, STORE will shift to using the term "Circulating Supply").
 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.
STORE builds treasury with Milestone Token Offerings (MTO)
STORE may open up 1-2 additional MTOs before mainnet launch.
