Coda Protocol, the World’s Lightest Blockchain, Releases its Economics Whitepaper and Launches Genesis Token Program

We are excited to share the incentive structure powering the Coda ecosystem in our economics whitepaper, especially with our community members whose contributions have been so invaluable to Coda’s development.

SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) January 22, 2020
Coda Protocol, the world’s lightest blockchain, released its economics whitepaper to showcase its monetary policy, including incentives designed to maximize network scalability and security. At the same time, Coda is launching Genesis, a token program that prepares participants to become the network’s first block producers upon mainnet launch. Coda token grants will be distributed to Genesis founding members determined from the pool of participants engaged in testnet challenges designed to contribute to greater network resilience.
Evan Shapiro, CEO and Co-founder of O(1) Labs, the team behind Coda Protocol, said, “We are excited to share the incentive structure powering the Coda ecosystem in our economics whitepaper, especially with our community members whose contributions have been so invaluable to Coda’s development. We believe in the importance of giving our most ardent supporters the opportunity to fill the essential network role of block producer in Coda’s upcoming mainnet. We can’t imagine the future of Coda in better hands than in those of our community of engaged members who continue to lend their time and expertise to ensuring the protocol’s high performance and long-term sustainability.”
By combining recursive zk-SNARKs for lightweight design and Ouroboros for maximizing inclusivity in consensus, Coda’s architecture gives the protocol possibilities for decentralization far beyond legacy blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum. The Genesis program will ensure the community can participate in ensuring decentralization upon mainnet launch, which will lead to far more security and censorship resistance compared to legacy blockchain architectures.
Up to one thousand Genesis founding members will be selected to receive Coda tokens by completing challenges on the testnet to help strengthen and harden the network. Community members can also support Coda’s growth through performing such crucial tasks as translating documentation, composing informational articles, moderating forums, planning meetups, and reporting bugs. When the mainnet goes live, Genesis founding members will comprise the network’s initial block producers, as they will have gained the technical knowledge required to stake tokens upon completing testnet challenges.
Unlike other third-generation protocols offering 1% or less in token distributions to their communities, Coda is setting aside up to 6.7% of tokens for Genesis founding members. Additionally, participants need not wait until some indefinite point in the future to receive their tokens, as Coda’s mainnet will be released this year.
Coda’s highly engaged community can be attributed to the protocol’s unique approach to blockchain’s scalability problem. Legacy blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum are incredibly slow and inefficient, issues that stem from security requirements that demand validating nodes download the entire chain to verify new blocks. By expanding block size, more transactions can be processed per block, but the resource requirements of validating nodes increase, which heightens barriers to entry. When fewer nodes can join, decentralization suffers, and the network becomes more vulnerable to a 51% attack.
O(1) Co-founders CEO Evan Shapiro and CTO Izaak Meckler realized that underlying network design need not be so taxing from a resource perspective. By deploying recursive zk-SNARKs, Coda block producers (Coda’s version of “nodes”) can rapidly share proof of the correct blockchain state across the network and easily update the proof as new transactions occur. This breakthrough application is what allows Coda to offer scalability to thousands of transactions per second, millions of users, and years of transaction history without sacrificing security.
Izaak Meckler, CTO and Co-founder of O(1) Labs, expressed, “The Genesis program allows us to build a community of engaged members who are helping to set the rules of the ecosystem. Such engagement is essential for constructing an infrastructure that serves the needs of its members.”

About Coda ProtocolCoda Protocol, the world’s lightest blockchain, provides a foundation for the decentralized digital economy (Web 3.0), offering scalability to thousands of transactions per second, millions of users, and years of transaction history without sacrificing security. By utilizing recursive zk-SNARKs, the Coda blockchain always stays the same size—about 20 kilobytes (the size of a few tweets). Recursive zk-SNARKs allow nodes to rapidly share and update proof of the correct blockchain state across the network. This breakthrough application of zk-SNARKs solves the issues of scalability and high barrier to entry for nodes that have plagued legacy blockchains to-date. By making it easier for nodes to participate, Coda improves decentralization and therefore security of the network. The Coda blockchain can be easily accessed from any device, including phones and browsers, and can be seamlessly integrated into new decentralized applications (dapps).

Oniracom Announces Whitepaper Highlighting Application of Social Data to Major City Planning

Joint project with international engineering firm informs transit and engineering decisions in Seattle, Perth
Press Release – updated: Nov 13, 2019 07:00 EST

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., November 13, 2019 (Newswire.com) – ​​​Oniracom, a boutique engagement marketing firm based in Santa Barbara, California, unveiled its newest study, produced in partnership with international engineering firm Arup. The in-depth analysis is a resource for cities or other entities curious about how social data can inform key decisions in built environments.
The whitepaper, titled Public sentiment analysis and its explanatory power: Applications to new mobility planning and orchestration, takes an in-depth look at how social data can influence the development of mass transit systems, focusing specifically on Seattle, WA, and Perth, Australia.
“Our previous intelligence work with Canberra, Australia used our proprietary data analysis system, Actionable Intelligence™, to interpret travel and emotional sentiment throughout the day,” stated Oniracom CEO Jacob Tell. “Arup wondered if they could gather data that would inform their own work with major city mobility.”
Oniracom CMO Mike Wald explained that Actionable Intelligence™ is data intelligence supported with proprietary validation services. “This allows us to sort through massive sets of geolocation data and social posts to produce otherwise unavailable insights into public behavior and emotional sentiment.” Due to sheer volume, analyzing each data set can take weeks, even on the company’s custom-built, GPU-driven servers.
“Once we get results back, we visualize the data and craft strategy based on sound intelligence research. For the Canberra project, visualization included the development of interactive 3D mapping tools to display emotional sentiment by time of day and location,” noted CTO Sean Campos.
Dylan Melsom, an engineer at Arup – one of the world’s largest engineering firms with offices in 34 countries – noted the potential these 3D mapping tools have for assisting the cities and other clients they serve and that the white paper helped demonstrate this potential.
“Oniracom was an excellent partner, bringing creative energy to the research and a spirit of investigation. They cut through the noise to bring detailed insight into the human experience of travel. This enabled us to not only improve our collective understanding of the potential applicability of sentiment analysis as a technique but also to drill deeper into the real points of pain, pleasure and indifference in the world of mobility.”
The report ultimately concludes that public sentiment and geolocation data alone do not provide sufficient data sets to make definitive decisions about mass transit. However, it points out that this type of data does provide valuable insights into behavior, emotional sentiment, and geolocation, which help inform future engineering projects. Download the Report.
