The Framework for Scaling the Token Economy
Menlo One is the world's most powerful framework for building decentralized applications with the speed of a traditional web app.Our decentralized database and Proof-of-Reputation incentive system is the infrastructure that enables the Web 3.0 generation of marketplaces, social media platforms, and future apps to be as fast and performant as their centralized predecessors.Read our Vision Paper
Cross Chain Node
A desktop native app which runs light nodes of Ethereum, IPFS, and other networks. dApps built with Menlo One have a smooth user experience from it’s automated transaction API.
With no admins, the Web3 needs to know who to trust. Our Proof-of-Reputation algorithm leverages Token-Curated Registry design patterns to incentivize virtuous behavior within the ecosystem, so only those providing value to others are compensated in tokens.
At the core, is a decentralized database which caches data from multiple blockchains to provide users the speed and experience of a traditional webapp, without compromising the security guarantees of a distributed blockchain.
Architected for a Reputable Blockchain
The Menlo Token (MET) rewards users and data nodes for their attention and data availability. A Proof of Reputation algorithm sizes rewards relative to the reputation based on providing value to the community in a Token Curated Registry. By having data stored on a distributed and byzantine fault tolerant public blockchain (Ethereum or others), but cached on an array of autonomous content nodes, Menlo One can be both fast and reliable despite being decentralized. With no single point of failure, we can deliver blockchain data with the speed of a traditional web host.
Powered by a Cross-Chain Wallet
Menlo One's "smart wallet" is the first cross - chain interoperable wallet designed specifically for token sales, dAaps, and other token based web applications.It supports ERC20, and forward compatible for Stellar, EOS, and more.It can be set to send funds to a token sale the moment it starts, sign transactions without constantly alerting the user, manage locally encrypted KYC / AML information, and much more.
