(If we publish, we’ll award you with 100,000 $STORE – enough to compete in founding mining auctions.)

While STORE transactions are zero-fee for both end users and developers, if STORE is initially deployed as n ERC20 token on Ethereum, applicable gas fees apply on Ethereum. All settlement transactions on Ethereum incur gas fees. When the ERC20 STORE tokens are swapped with native STORE token tokens, transactions will be settled on the STORE network and at that time, zero-fee transactions are resumed.


Crypto space cannot see widespread adoption with smart contracts and dApps.
Decentralized web must support real world data-rich and compute-heavy apps sooner or later. Web3 cannot be the foundation for the decentralized web because of astronomical developer cost. STORE introduces CPT — Cost Per One Thousand Transactions — a measure that compares developer/user cost to send transactions across multiple decentralized networks.

STORE Q1 Engineering Updates
Q1 2019 was extremely productive for STORE on the engineering front. Here are a few of the key highlight activities.
STORE open sources Basil, a proposal to improve for the Tendermint consensus algorithm
Tendermint is a BFT consensus algorithm powering the Cosmos project and more.
BlockFin: Proof-of-Stake Protocol with Security that Rivals Proof-of-Work
The Proof-of-Work (PoW) algorithm was the first consensus protocol to power public blockchains. As a result, proponents of PoW-based blockchains claim they are more secure than Proof-of-Stake-based (PoS) blockchains. BlockFin, Storecoin’s PoS consensus algorithm, provides security that rivals traditional PoW blockchains.

STORE Addresses “Rich Get Gradually Richer” Concern with its Leaderless Protocol and Decentralized Economics

STORE Achieves +10,000 Transactions-Per-Second with Burst Traffic and 21 Validator Nodes
STORE’s mission is to become zero-fee payment infrastructure for the global internet. The Dynamic Proof of Stake (DyPoS) consensus engine powering the STORE infrastructure is designed to process thousands of transactions per second. When transactions arrive continuously but at lower rates, the consensus engine is capable of handling the incoming transactions, but how does it behave when transactions come in bursts? When STORE is used as the payment platform by merchants and app developers, the transactions are likely to come in bursts from multiple sources. So, we need to characterize the behavior of the consensus engine under such circumstances.
