Genesis is a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) based on blockchain. In Genesis, users (nodes) vote to update community rules and blockchain protocols. Genesis provides scalability through sidechains. Each sidechain is considered a virtual country. Each country can have its own method of governance, providing unlimited possibilities. Anybody can start a sidechain, just like you can run a smart contract on Ethereum.
Democratic DPoS preserves the DPoS’ high tps while avoiding DPoS’ problem of “the richers get richer”.
All community rules are decided by user votings. Hard forking only happens when consensus is reached with the majority of users.
Users can find DApps easily in Genesis DApp Store.
Sidechain technology is used in Genesis to the provide extensibility and scalability that limit traditional blockchains.
Genesis has a sophisticated yet simplified tokenomic. Just like in the real world, where energy comes from the sun, we think that the time people spend in Genesis is the original drive in the system. Therefore, we have designed a tokenomic where ordinary people can earn tokens by just staying online.
Genesis team members come from prestigious universities like CMU, Harvard, Berkeley, Columbia and CUHK. These engineers have extensive experience in enterprises like Google, Ebay, Alibaba and Oracle etc.
