Graft Blockchain Foundation
- Consumers benefiting from lower prices due to merchants fees going down
- Merchants offering more products and services
- Consumers and providers benefiting from significantly lowered administrative and transaction processing overhead
- Drop in physical and electronic crime due to shift to cashless and secure crypto-currency
- Consumers benefitting from lower credit card borrowing costs resulting from peer lending
Core Set of Principles for Graft
Real Time AuthorizationsReal time authorizations are the crux of the modern payment processing. Accomplishing real-time authorizations requires a flexible and scalable architecture and an end-to-end solution
Transaction Privacy and Untraceability as the Basis for Payment BlockchainWe believe that complete transaction privacy and untraceability should be at the basis of the payment blockchain. The private network then implements facilities that allow both parties to select the levels of disclosures that are appropriate for any given transaction
PoW / PoS / PoI working togetherWe believe that proof-of-work, proof-of-stake, and proof-of-id each have their place in an application specific blockchain implementation like payments. We believe in implementing and using all these various approaches gradually and selectively to accomplish the ultimate security of the network as well as speed and reliability of the transactions.
Open Platform for Service BrokersIt is difficult to completely automate or/and decentralize some services such as identity verification, credit card processing, or instant currency exchange. While some core features such as real time authorization and untraceability are provided and implemented by the network itself, many important services will be delivered by third party service brokers. It is difficult to completely automate or/and decentralize some services such as identity verification, credit card processing, or instant currency exchange.
Specialized BlockchainsComplex systems are not stable. We believe in specialization of blockchains vs having bloated one-size-fits all approach that other smart contract based blockchains implement. We will add smart contract features that are relevant to the application, with an eye towards integrity and reliability of the network
OrganizationWe intend to keep the core organization as small as possible (in the order of 15-20 people), mostly engineers. GRAFT Foundation team will not be engaging in the build-out of the network or any other administrative controls of the network. Our part is software design – we leave the commercial efforts to other parties who want to become part of the network.
While it will be core organization’s mission to build the software that will power GRAFT Network, it will be up to the eco-system of partners who will enable the commercial success of the project. We anticipate both function specific involvement from individuals and/or firms dealing with the specific aspect of the solution, to regional organizations who will act as market oracles in observance with local regulations, needs, and customs
