BLOCKCHAIN technology represents a significant step in the digital sphere. Its valuable characteristics have allowed numerous studies to affirm that the Blockchain is a technology that will completely revolutionize society as we know it and the way we manage it.
Centralized services such as cloud storage, recording, data verification, contract execution, logistics and supply chains, notary, security, property rentals, electricity, voting, military applications, insurance, financial services and more, will be redesigned incorporating this new technology.
The Blockchain is a simple yet ingenious way of passing information from A to B in a fully automated and safe manner. One party to a transaction initiates the process by creating a block. Thousands verify this Block, perhaps millions of computers distributed around the net, this is added to a chain stored across the net, creating a unique record and an individual record with a unique history. Falsifying a single file would mean forging the entire chain in millions of instances. That is virtually impossible. Thus, any of the services mentioned above or processes stored in the Blockchain will guarantee transparency, agility, and security in a lower cost decentralized model. The birth of Bitcoin as the first digital cryptocurrency set a milestone for the growth of the digital transaction-based economy. Even though there were several attempts to create online tools that would reduce the financial monopoly that traditional banks and commercial entities have.
Satoshi's creation was born with a decentralized nature and with the capacity to be independent of the traditional financial system, thanks to the technology that supports it: Blockchain.
Over time the boom that the crypto assets gained during ten years of existence, this decentralization has been threatened by the emergence of enormous mining farms, pools, and different associations. The aim of monopolizing the production of crypto-currency is by the validation of blocks, which adds considerable energy consumption generated by the sophisticated equipment used to carry out this activity.
However, technological advances have to go through processes of improvement until they reach a final product, which will be the best quality for its consumers. That is why structuring a blockchain system that allows the consolidation of a digital currency will soon be the new and primordial challenge of the crypto world, providing safe and sustainable financial opportunities in time. A system that aims to change the concept of energy consumption for the mining process has become unsustainable. Furthermore, redirecting that energy to activities or structures that have the well-being productivity for the human being as a priority.
The potential behind the usability of this technology for digital currency coerces the human race to achieve the improvement of a technology that has all the characteristics to collapse the traditional and centralized financial system. That is not only based on correcting the disadvantages presented so far by different projects but in executing a future projection with technological innovation and at the forefront, which allows us to consolidate sustainability over time.
2. THE FUNDAMENTAL ROLE OF A PROTOCOL IN A BLOCKCHAIN.
Consensus protocols in a blockchain are the syntactic, algorithmic, computational or mathematical means by which different parts of a network can share information in forming a fault-tolerant system. It allows those involved to reach the same conclusion from limited initial details.
Achieving this consensus is one of the main problems of a distributed network. Developing a protocol that allows all network participants to reach a collective agreement without knowing all the variables that lead to it implies a vast algorithmic complexity.
That is why the developers of Arian's Blockchain have set more emphasis on developing a protocol with differentiating elements. Like to direct the energy used for the mining towards activities and processes that maximize the well-being and the productivity of the human being, sustainability in the future and qualities that allow the consensus within the Blockchain is the new challenge of the team.
3. THE CRYPTO WORLD BEFORE ARIAN
The Proof of Work (PoW) to validate the Block: Proof of Work is an algorithmic consensus protocol in which participants during the process of mining cryptocurrency, must perform some work to determine who validates the next Block in the chain and thus grant the reward to the winner.
This effort or work consists of using computer capacity to find the hash code, which in turn validates the previous Block. The higher the computer's power, the higher the probability of obtaining the valid code, but in the same way, the energy consumption increases.
The best example of this protocol's application is the bitcoin mining, in which PoW makes use of an enormous computational capacity to decipher the hash, thus incurring energy consumption on a large scale and causing a significant economic expense for the miners.
When participating in a game replaces the work: Proof of Play (PoP)
The Proof of Play (PoP) consensus protocol proposes the validation of blocks within a string and the generation of crypto assets, employing challenge assignment through a game. Thus, instead of relying on a job done by computers, it is based on a job done by the user through the game.
Motocoin is a clear example of this. Launched in May 2.014, it was a pioneering, innovative, and even fascinating project, but its failure, like Huntercoin, was based on its design's insecurity. It ended up being invaded by bots that solved the puzzle much more efficiently than humans, determined that his initial approach would not work in practice.
The protocol that requests possession of crypto assets to get a reward: Proof of Stake
The Proof of Stake algorithm facilitates the access of crypto assets through a random process for block validation, with better probabilities for those with a higher number of cryptocurrencies. Therefore, the possibility of receiving the reward will be proportional to the number of coins held.
Like other protocols, the POS system presented errors in its security, since the wallet is online. Likewise, the algorithm was losing the main characteristic of the technology: the decentralization. Over time those users with higher amounts of coins were hoarding the distribution and monopolizing the vast majority of the rewards.
4. THE PROBLEM
The loss of decentralization
Since the rise of the first cryptocurrency, the main reason for its booming has been the decentralized nature. Which ironically tended to disappear, thanks to the proliferation of a large number of mining farms. This situation has had repercussions on the generation of a growing monopoly that prevents the effort of any autonomous miner from being productive, losing sight of the essence of independence that this whole universe initially proposes.
It is precisely in this aspect that crypto mining loses its essence and wanders from the objective with which Satoshi Nakamoto developed the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, which commits to achieving a decentralized economy free from control by third parties, represented in the traditional economic and financial systems.
A clear example of this situation is what is happening in China, which is aggravated by the support provided by the fact that the Asian country is currently the largest producer of compatible hardware for mining. It is Bitcoin's main threat, due to the emergence of a large number of mining farms, estimated at 70% of all miners in the world. Pools produce 85 % of Bitcoin mining in farms, distributed across the globe. It means that only 15% of BTC's mining is done by independent miners, which clearly shows the loss of decentralization and the monopoly created in this activity.
Cryptomining's great enemy:
The main idea of the Blockchain concept is to guarantee immutable transactions, and this should be its greatest strength. However, currently, the main weakness of crypto mining is high energy consumption, this is becoming a severe threat to the usability of this technology, which has resulted in many queryings whether the reward justifies such an expense. Cryptocurrency mining involves a high cost of energy and hardware, that is, a miner must have a large number of computers consuming a large amount of electricity to decipher the multiple codes that validate a block within the Blockchain. Otherwise, he will not be able to see a coin fragment. The boom in cryptocurrency mining has resulted in a significant increase in energy consumption, which has had a significant impact worldwide. In recent years it has reached scandalous proportions, truly alarming figures estimated that currently more than 80% of the miners' income is spent on energy bills.
Key Data and Statistics.
In late 2018, the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Education conducted a study that assesses how much energy crypto-mining consumes compared to aluminum, copper, gold, platinum and rare earth oxides. These studies' results indicate that the mining of minerals, except for aluminum and some oxides, consumes less energy than crypto-miners, as shown in the graph below:
Let's look at some statistics resulting from studies between May 2017 - January 2020, conducted by experts worldwide on energy use and consumption, about crypto-mining:
- Scientist Max Krause made calculations that make it clear that mining will have generated between 3 and 15 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in approximately two years. These figures will undoubtedly increase at the same rate that the crypto-mining operations grow, as it is developing to date.
- According to a report published by the International Energy Agency, Bitcoin's entire network currently consumes more energy than several countries. The analogy they propose is that if Bitcoin were a country, it would be classified as follows.
5. INTELIGENT AND INTERACTIVE CRYPTO-MINING
The concept of Intelligent Interactive Mining refers to the characteristics and processes executed in Arian's Blockchain, to carry out crypto-mining without the disadvantages presented in other protocols. Examples include loss of decentralization, inadequate security, excessive demand for energy, computer equipment, a significant investment of time, and specific knowledge, among others. Additionally, the concept is given about the capacity of its protocol to be implemented in a diversity of potential activities, allowing wellness and productivity through devices connected to the Blockchain.
Proof of Achievement (PoAch), a protocol created for the mining of the future
Arian's Blockchain, to offer security and sustainability to solve the current problems of the crypto world protocols, has developed a hybrid system, implementing the best characteristics of 2 worlds: PoW (proof of work) and the Proof of Play. As a result, the birth of a unique and exclusive protocol named: Proof of Achievement, to offer productivity, fun, diversification, profitability, and sustainability to the community and its network.
The main innovation in the Proof of Achievement protocol and the most critical feature is the human-machine symbiosis. The proposal enhances the interaction of a miner with a device to validate blockchain blocks; that is, with PoAch, the skill and ability are more important than the equipment used to mine.
So the potential of this unique protocol project applications to many devices with a regular Internet connection, the so-called Internet of things. Smart garage doors, garden sensors, bracelets, sportswear, dog wearables, collaborative robots, drones, and many products that can connect to the blockchain node will generate crypto profits through the fulfillment of the activities of the device.
The differential elements that frame this innovation revolutionize and optimize crypto finances to the degree that we decided to keep the source code private so that to plagiarize, this technological advance, would be virtually impossible. It generates even more value for both initial and future investors; this is how ARIAN's Blockchain is backed by one of its added benefits, providing the user with a guarantee, through its patented and uncopyable technology.
Additionally, Arian has linked to this protocol the advanced encryption algorithm AES-256, to guarantee the security of the Blockchain. An algorithm that since 2006 has become one of the most popular protocols used in symmetric cryptography, which is why it has been declared sufficiently secure for use in classified and unclassified information by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA).
Arian´s Interactive Node
Cryptocurrency mining's performance works with the participation of different computers connected to the network, which operate with specific software known as Node. In the general concept, a Node is a point where several information transport networks converge, that is, a place where part of the connections of other areas, real or abstract, share similar characteristics. Nodes interrelate in a non-hierarchical way and form what we know as a network in terms of computing, leading this concept to define as a set of interconnected NODES
In the Blockchain context, the term Node refers to a computer or device on which software is downloaded from a blockchain to participate in the peer-to-peer network, the base structure of a blockchain. The characteristics of a node for crypto-mining are generally quite similar for all, each containing its operational details, in which its differences lie.
The Arian Interactive Node is the tool developed to enable miners to participate in an Intelligent Interactive Mining.
Arian's Interactive Node is the only one that currently allows the integration of a game for crypto-mining: HASH RACE. Also, right now, Arian Blockchain has a basic coding structure, beta version, for the mining process to be executed in standard devices by any activity with monetization potential of monetizing, in the area of fitness, Internet of things, and more.
To be able to mine in other blockchain technology's nodes, average or superior technical knowledge in terms of computing and systems operation is necessary, limiting the possibilities to a critical number of potential autonomous miners. Arian's Interactive Node don't need so much specialized knowledge, since only with essential information and understand computer operation, any user can download the Node and start being a G-MINER or an A-MINER.
6. PROOF OF ACHIEVEMENT'S APPLICATION CASES
The exponential increase of smart devices in the last ten years, has led to countless researches around the world to ensure that by 2030 there will be between 50 and 125 billion connected devices on the planet, automating people's daily lives, from industries to homes with the well-known "smart home."
PoAch and the "Internet of Things": The Alliance of the Future!
When the developers' team of the ARIAN Blockchain decided to create PoAch, they did it with the conviction that it had to be a long-lasting and sustainable system in time. Also, methodically created, adapting to innovation cycles in the field of technology and consolidated it as a product present in all families and homes. In addition to correcting the disadvantages of the more "popular" protocols, they are guaranteed safety, accessibility, and cost-effectiveness.
With this vision, PoAch was born, a protocol that presents as its most ambitious achievement: the ability to generate crypto-assets through its execution in any device with Internet access, safely and sustainably. A printer, a security system, a spinning bike, a garage door, a Smart T.V., etc., today are considered smart technological devices. Fulfilling the essential functionalities of any of these devices would be quantified and encrypted to achieve real goals that will complete a hash and mining a block. So, the PoAch protocol is projected to be the best application for smart devices and ensures its presence to be considered a revolutionary system in the new digital era.
HASH RACE, the first PoAch application
The video game industry has shown an enormous development in the last decade. Drove by technological innovation and the boom of tournaments and competitions worldwide, which are called electronic sports or esports. From that moment on, companies and professional gamers' leagues, began to emerge, forming their own rules and championships, achieving official recognition and obtaining sponsorships that have reached around 2,000 million USD in prizes given to players, without a doubt, it is an area that project development and expansion.
For that reason, Arian's Blockchain is taking advantage of these projections and community, to offer his first product of application to the PoAch protocol, where the gamer or G-MINER will be able to see real and tangible results participating in a video game. Hash Race allows you to compete in a fantastic futuristic race where you can get crypto-assets and other different rewards for your effort and dedication. All this, in a comfortable, safe, and funny way.
HASH RACE The Blockchain Game: The first PoAch's successful application.
In the HASH RACE Blockchachain Game, the participant will be able to obtain the native crypto-currency of the Arian's Blockchain called Ariancoin. You are taking control of a hovercraft to travel at full speed through an endless tunnel inside the Blockchain, facing a series of obstacles in competition with other players whom you can not see. The player must carry out in a maximum time of 3 minutes, in which you must collect all the encrypted fragments to form the hash; doing this, you get closer to the goal of completing it and therefore validating the Block to access the Arian Block Reward.
HASH RACE is an attractive tool for G-MINERS, where the excitement of participating beyond winning within a game enhanced by the possibility of reaching the goal of validating the Block and being rewarded for it, that is, mining in a fun and dynamic way.
It is easy for anyone to start participating in Arianes mining through HASH RACE, just downloading the Arian Interactive Node into a standard computer is enough for the participant to begin accumulating Arianes while competing in a race with obstacles at full speed.
Designing the future: Fitness will provide double rewards, a healthy life, and Ariancoins for achieved goals.
Arian's Blockchain is currently developing a series of projects to promote a better quality of life for its miners. The stimulus to a healthy lifestyle based on the exercise, focusing on the rewards that the participant will obtain through the accomplishment of an activity in which will prove the human-machine relation. It will work when the sensors set with the Proof of Achievement (PoAch) protocol read the effort made and count the results to reward the performer with Ariancoins.
An example of one of the many devices that will connect directly to the Arian Node is the Smart Bracelet, which will be available to our miners according to the roadmap. These devices equipped with sensors and the PoAch protocol, will send the record's results calculations so that the Node will process them to decree the achievement of a goal, and, thus, award the Ariancoins or reward to the user. By implementing this alternative, the miner would get rewards and health improvement at the same time.
7 . ARIAN CLUB
The worth of a cryptocurrency is determined, among other things, by its usability, security, and community of participants (A-Miners) through transactions holdings of this crypto-assets. Like the rest of goods and services, crypto-assets are subject to the law of supply and demand, consequently the confluence of purchases and sales of it. The product's ecosystem availability for exchange with the cryptocurrency strength its community trust and makes more robust the system; these are some of the factors that determine the price movement of the cryptocurrency and its network's security.
Under this premise was established an alliance with a Decentralized Club called Arian Club to develop network effect, whereby an increased numbers of people or participants improve the value of a good or service. It would cause for the visionaries and early adopters a profitable alternative to capitalize their crypto-assets.
Arian Club has the purpose of consolidating a community of individuals that, through different channels or products, can access or gain the Ariancoin cryptocurrency; through its commercialization and transaction volumes, increasing its market capitalization. As a result of the alliance between Arian's Blockchain and Arian Club, Staking Agil was born. An optimized version of the well-known protocol PROOF OF STAKE, in which the concept of randomness is eliminated and guarantees a 100% return over investment (ROI), providing an environment of security and confidence.
As an additional security feature, this system maintains and reinforces the concept of decentralization, and it works as a copy of the complete Blockchain. Therefore, each participant will have a backup of the entire digital database and will help strengthen the whole community, eliminating potential cyber-attacks. Additionally, all the community and potential benefits are backed by the 50% pre-mined of the total supply from the Ariancoins reserve in the Genesis Block. An algorithm based on the Proof of Stake protocol with simplified features, called Agile Staking, was implemented for the payment of the rewards offered by the Arian Club.
Therefore, the Arian Blockchain and the Decentralized Club, are the only technological alliance in the world that presents a hybrid system, with the best and optimized characteristics of the three most consolidated and simplified consensus protocols of the blockchain world: PoW, PoP, PoS.
Finally, the early adopters have the opportunity to acquire a crypto in its early stages and, through its community reinforced by the Club, obtain exponential profits by the increase of its market value.
8. REWARDS CHALLENGE
We already know that generating Ariancoin is possible through the symbiosis Node+Action+Human with the Proof of Achievement (PoAch). Video games, physical exercises, and the daily life of a household can become a source of income with Arian's Blockchain.
Arian proposes a system in which profits are for everyone, and it works as follows:
If an independent miner recommends a contact or known person to download the Interactive Node, he will start generating different rewards in Arianes every time his referrals mine a block, from the G-miners upwards, up to a third level:
- The reward for the G-miners will be 10 Arianes per block validation and 6 Arians for their referrals, on all three levels
- Rewards are generated when a block is validated.
- No miner loses Arianes for the rewards another miner receives.
- Who recommends wins a reward's percentage resulting from the validation of the Block, not including transaction fees.
