A storm has hit the investment market which we are not going to recover from. Crypto investment is that storm. With strict capital controls in place by most countries to control the flow of money and charge high taxes, cryptocurrency gained usage in circumventing capital controls and taxes, leading to an increase in demand. Cryptocurrency has been able to present an easy to use digital alternative to fiat currencies. Offering frictionless transactions and inflation control, investors have been prudent enough to add these currencies in their diversified portfolios as an asset, as the size of the market does not represent a systemic risk. Cryptocurrency employs the use of cryptography that assures high-security processes and verifies transactions personal to each user. Hence, counterfeiting and anonymous transactions are impossible to achieve.
While this revolution is gaining wide acceptance, Athero, a platform designed to improve commerce by combining the Internet of Things and the blockchain technology has arrived.
"The internet has come a long way from the days of text based html webpages. Now, you have everything from social media to the internet of things (IoT), and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
In fact, there are tech experts who believe the internet is now moving into another era called the web 3.0. For those who don’t know, web 1.0 was the static, text based, naked code web pages, while web 2.0 ushered in an era of dynamic websites, social media, ecommerce and a faster media based internet.
This is where we’re currently at right now. You can shop, stream videos, get entertainment, use apps, and do a whole lot more than you could during the web 1.0 era, thanks to a faster internet and rapidly advancing tech."
With that being said, Athero incorporates a distributed operating system with an open blockchain, using virtual business to business networks and a consensus algorithm to realize better offline solutions for information flow and product sourcing needs.
But before we go any further, please check out this video presentation to get even more acquainted
Now that I have your attention, let’s get right to it.
What exactly is ATHERO?
As depicted above, Athero is a platform designed to improve commerce by combining the Internet of Things and the blockchain technology. Athero incorporates a distributed operating system with an open blockchain, using virtual business to business networks and a consensus algorithm to realize better offline solutions for information flow and product sourcing needs. While the Athero design is inspired by that of earlier blockchains, it also realizes decades of research across the fields of concurrent and distributed computation, mathematics, and programming language design. The platform includes a modular, end-to-end design that commits to correct-by-construction software and industrial extensibility.
Furthermore, Athero is a highly profitable, global cryptocurrency ecosystem that doesn’t rely on banks or any other financial institution Blockchain technology has a huge potential to create new bussines models and bring measurable benefits and value to the public and private sectors. To unlock this potential, Athero protocol was designed purposefully to tackle the main challenges which limit the fluent exchange and integrity of data in product smart chains. With smart chain data becoming increasingly fragmented, scalability and cost concerns of current decentralized solutions become evident.
Using Athero, all stakeholders can securely share their data and keep sensitive data fully encrypted at all times. By supporting global standards for data exchange (GS1, IoT, compliance standards), Athero assures compatibility with existing ERP systems, making implementation process quick and efficient. Finally, it is fully decentralised. It removes the possibility of collisions and introduces full accountability for the data provided.
The Athero protocol aims to address key challenges, limiting the exchange of expertise and integrity of data in the smart chains of the product.
IoT networks involve a range of disparate things, right from laptops, smartphones and wearables to sensors, TVs, medical equipment and many more. As such, managing communication between disparate users is always a challenge. To exchange data, devices should trust and verify the authenticity of each other.
Data transfer speeds
With a range of disparate devices working in the network, exchanging data and processing it takes time. There are several intermediaries such as IoT gateways and filters. As data passes through these intermediaries, it takes more time to reach the destination. Moreover, devices in the network are not evenly configured. As such, data consumption and storage varies with each device. So, the central management has to monitor and act accordingly.
Smart cities concept. (IOT)
Wifi ready solar smart bench network . Located across the world in smart cities.
Smart car parking technology (Independent sensor networks in different zones that can detect, via magnetic fields, whether a parking spot is available or occupied )
Sensors for a smart and healthy environment (Network with air pollution sensors, radio/gsm/wifi burglar sensors which is focused on health related impact )
Athero will fill an empty space in current economy model.
The currencies that will go-on to become large caps or mega caps will be the ones that actually have a differentiated business use case and customer value proposition.
State-of-the-art cryptographic data structures and unparalleled decentralization provide efficiency and eliminate single-point-of-failure.
Athero is bootstrapping partnerships in different sectors to bring blockchain technology into real world use.
Cutting edge technology
Athero is continuously researching the newest technological standards and continuously expanding our cooperations with international research institutions to keep the technology safe and up to date.
