Tokenized Data enables

Data to be open and tradable

Data to be programmable by third party apps and devices

Data to have a monetary premium (like $STORE, $BTC, $ETH, $EOS, and gold)

Datacoin revenue to be shared with users, citizens, more

…which enables these high-level use cases

Zero-fee settlement-layer enabled

Tokenized data enabled (p2p cloud)

High-level Use Cases

Fast, zero-fee, programmable payments for the public internet

Voting on the global rules of a decentralized, zero-fee digital asset

Zero-fee, 2/3 censorship resistant value transfer of data as a digital asset

Voting on the global rules of decentralized, open, and programmable data

A web2 app developer opening APIs for other developers to build with (for $STORE)

An IoT device developer live streaming datasets for anyone to access (for $STORE)

A health care system making a prized and rare dataset available (for $STORE)

An autonomous car or drone opening its ML-ready, live data streams (for $STORE)

A local government streaming IoT device data for anyone to access (for $STORE)

(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.

Bitcoin.com and Investopedia: STORE Governance Could Be the Solution to Blockchain Consensus

Cryptocurrency news sites Bitcoin.com and Investopedia have called out STORE’s unique governance model, crediting creator Chris McCoy with devising a strategy that engages members of four separate branches in achieving consensus in a democratic process.

Cryptocurrency news sites Bitcoin.com and Investopedia have called out STORE's unique governance model, crediting creator Chris McCoy with devising a strategy that engages members of four separate branches in achieving consensus in a democratic process.

As blockchain approaches practical use in the marketplace, network creators have discovered that a potential threat to their success rests with the people who hold, buy and earn the tokens associated with their platforms.

Developers have created consensus protocols and algorithms to guard against bad actors on the network and built economic models in an attempt to ensure long-term viability. But only recently has the issue of governance emerged as a key factor in protecting the wider community of users from individuals who care more about financial gain than the ultimate survival of the network.

STORE, a high-throughput, zero-fee blockchain, has created a governance system that McCoy believes will best serve the highest interests of the network.

McCoy believes STORE will reach global adoption thanks in large part to a governance structure that supports decentralization, engenders trust among participants, and resists censorship.

Analysts in the industry appear to agree. Investopedia's Nathan Reiff writes, "Particularly in the case of highly successful cryptocurrency projects, it can be tough to find mechanisms for governance that will encourage voters to act in the common interests instead of self-interest. STORE may be one of the more interesting projects in this regard."

"Due to the huge economic incentives at stake, getting token-holders to act in the interests of the community, rather than fixating on their own pecuniary gains, is a tall order. STORE is a ... blockchain whose most interesting feature is not a technical one – it's a human one," says Kai Sedgwick at Bitcoin.com.
