Stay updated on Storecoin
Our founding team at Storecoin believes that the most durable, scalable, and global blockchain ecosystems of the future will have their roots in shared, open research. Before mainnet launch, Storecoin will open up its research across governance, economics, distribution, security, and consensus for public peer review. We're also offering research bounties to help our core team shape the protocol (more below).

4. Reimagining Property, Rights, and Enforcement In The Blockchain Context
The foundation of markets are property rights and the enforcement of contracts. Without protected private property, market participants can’t lay claim to the goods they sell or buy in the market. Without contract enforcement, participants have to trust trading counterparts with no hope of recourse.

1. Announcing the Storecoin Governance Peer Review Process & Working Group
Storecoin is pleased to announce our first peer review and working group, focused on governance. Through this, we will bring our community together to learn about and provide input on a full spectrum of governance issues. This process will take place through public comments on prepared documents and via a public email group, a final spec generated from the working group, and ultimately culminate in the third Storecoin GovCon in 2021.

How Storecoin solves for both scalability and decentralization without sharding, off-chain transactions, level 2, etc.

Storecoin’s leader-free, BFT consensus algorithm BlockFin, validates blocks in a pipelined process.

BlockFin is a two-tier network of Validator nodes and Messagenodes, each with specific roles, assemble and validate blocks using a cryptographically secure process. At launch, we expect 5,000+ transactions per second and for throughput to increase as transaction demand increases.

Research Bounties
Storecoin's research program grants $1,000+ of individual bounties for research in areas around STORE governance, economics, security, consensus, and distribution. Researchers will be invited to present at GovCon 2019, Storecoin’s first-ever conference in San Francisco.

Storecoin's one-entity, one-vote governance of checks and balances is the coordination mechanism for the zero-fee payments protocol.

BlockFin(Storecoin’s BFT consensus algorithm)
Research BLS signature aggregation to mitigate the large number of signatures created during block validation process. Every block contains the signatures of *all* the validators who have signed the block. This is required for the security, but at the same time, can add unnecessary overhead for every block. With BLS or Schnorr signature aggregation, just one aggregated signature is stored in the block.

Research how Storecoin's democratic, p2p governance of checks and balances *might* be able to bring decentralized and global governance to a centralized mega-company like Facebook. Every country has a vote in a dual-chamber governance and the countries themselves can collectively overrule Facebook.
