Cardstack is an open-source framework and consensus protocol that makes blockchains usable and scalable for the mass market.
Cardstack is a leap forward for blockchain at every layer of the software stack - providing a toolset that unlocks the potential of the decentralized Internet for everyone.
Cardstack Framework is a comprehensive SDK for building powerful, cohesive blockchain apps. At the core is Cardstack Hub, which orchestrates data and value transfer across multiple blockchains and the cloud.
Cardstack-powered dApps can tap into the Tally protocol, which gives dApps the power to perform complex computations to organize large networks of users — such as batching payments, counting votes, and rewarding good work.
Developers can monetize their Cardstack- based apps via the smart contracts powered by the Cardstack Token (CARD), an Ethereum-based ERC20 token designed to fairly reward Cardstack- powered communities.
Cardstack’s approach to decentralizaton lets self-sovereign users act as their own hub, so that interactions with applications and services running on networks of different topologies flow through a software stack controlled by the users.
Centralized tech giants force us into silos, and capture the value we create. Early decentralized tech like Bitcoin demonstrates the promise of blockchain, but has only delivered gains to a handful of enthusiasts. Cardstack is a leap forward for blockchain at every layer of the software stack—providing a toolset that unlocks the potential of the decentralized Internet for everyone.
Developers can use the Cardstack Framework, a comprehensive SDK, to create powerful, card-based blockchain apps. Build anything using modular narrative and discovery containers. Easily construct custom workflows using our Cardstack Hub, which orchestrates data and value transfer across multiple blockchains and the cloud. Drop in ready-touse functionality like searchable indexes, realtime notifications, uniform user permissions, flexible containerized deployment, and much more. Everything is extensible, and is 100% open-sourced. Cardstack is a revolutionary experience layer that makes blockchain technology usable and scalable—creating a decentralized software ecosystem that can challenge today’s digital superpowers.
This ecosystem is governed by smart contracts powered by the Cardstack Token (CARD), an Ethereum-based ERC20 token. CARD isn’t just any old cryptocurrency: it’s designed specifically to create a sustainable marketplace where open-source developers are rewarded fairly, while allowing users to curate and combine the perfect mix of software services to fit their needs. Just like other cryptocurrencies, CARD users can become miners to validate transactions and earn fees. But unlike Bitcoin—which forces miners to solve useless math problems —Cardstack analytic miners help calculate the reward function of who gets paid out what, while sifting out spam, making the system fair and resilient. Analytic miners’ results compete in a sortition scheme we call proof-of-analytics, so reward algorithms are never under a single party’s control.
For End Users:
For Analytic Miners:
60% of the generated tokens will be distributed in Year 1 through early contributor agreements, pre-allocation, crowd fundraiser, airdrops, Year 1 ecosystem initiatives, and advisors/partners allocations. Allocated tokens will be available for peer-to-peer usage at the conclusion of the crowd fundraiser, which will begin no more than 60 days from the conclusion of the pre-allocation period.
The airdrop awards will occur throughout the ﬁrst year, with each airdrop event limited to 2% of the generated tokens. There will be a public announcement at least 30 days before each distribution event, allowing interested participants to prepare their prerequisites for the awards.
