Zero-fee, peer-to-peer value transfer
Fast & scalable transactions
Democractic & censorship resistant governance (1 entity, 1 vote)

//STORE also consists of //STORE Markets which enable and open up the above use cases. Each Market caters to a specific industry, sector or vertical and as such will have their own specific requirements around storage and compute resources.
These markets host various different types of public and private applications in order to provide both decentralized compute and storage resources and are paid either directly by a company/app owner or by customers in exchange for access to their data.
