What is STORE (the protocol)?

STORE is a zero-fee public blockchain that allows developers to build on the STORE Cloud - a decentralized network of data centers and edges - using $STORE as its base currency. It's like Amazon Web Services™ but decentralized.

It is a proof-of-stake and governance protocol at the intersection of cloud and crypto. Features of the protocol are as follows:

Consensus Information

Governance Information

  • Decentralized separation of powers (e.g. splitting treasury decisions vs protocol upgrade decisions)

  • Decentralized checks and balances (e.g. processes for submitting & approving proposals)

  • Off-chain coordination + on-chain voting

  • Democratic voting (1 entity 1 vote)

  • Final vote is legally binding

Technology Information

  • BlockfinBFT - Leaderless, asynchronous, byzantine-fault-tolerant consensus algorithm

  • Smart Contracts - Rust (e.g. Move by LibraBFT)

  • Container / VM - SSVM
