Goals of Locus chain
- Next-generation standard block chain platform
- Fastest transaction
- Little or no fee
- Ledger dynamic state sharding
The pursuing value of Locus chain
The decentralization proposed by Bitcoin in the first place is not only the proof of transaction, but that the issuing and managing entity will also not be affected by political or economic factors. Note, however, that it focused on speed, functions, or business model.
Locus Chain will fully implement decentralization in all aspects, including speed and feature superiority using the latest technology.
As part of such, Locus Chain will introduce an improved compensation model to make the issuance rights non-exclusive so that the decentralization of issuance rights can be variably controlled depending on the field of use thus ultimately enhancing the value of the entire network of Locus Chain.
Based on these values, we have to improve factors such as transfer speed, transaction fee variability, structural flexibility, etc. to be used as real payment or payment / authentication system such as IoT. It will provide a truly next-generation IoT, Energy, and Communication platform for B2B, B2C, C2C, and M2M (machine-to-machine) trading and certification systems worldwide.
Our plan for global inequalities and gaps
The Locus Chain Foundation is dedicated to ensuring secure inter-operability for consumers, businesses, and industries by delivering standard block chain technology-based platform, bridging specification, and implementation and certification program allowing people and devices to communicate regardless of form factor, operating system, service provider, transport technology, or ecosystem.
As part of such shift, the Locus Chain Foundation is expanding its technology to offer tools and services to strengthen the capacity of grantees in charity fundraising, resource development, crowdfunding, and access to donor and foundation databases via its technical platform. The given technology will be paired with a staff who will provide specialized services to help ensure the sustainability of services and programs beyond the term of the grant.
The Locus Chain Foundation hopes to be at the forefront of identifying innovative ideas, people, services, and programs that raise consciousness, community leadership, and capital to break the cycles of poverty, violence, and inequality that have plagued “third-world” nations for so long. Very few foundations are willing to take the risk as the initial founder. They want a safe bet. Nonetheless, the Locus Chain Foundation believes that, if the given technology raises awareness of these emerging leaders and its services & programs, it will spur others to provide additional support; thus creating ripple effects in the community based on the clearance.
