PoT Protocol
The nature and scale of blockchain activity necessitates trustworthy inputs.

The most celebrated aspect of blockchain technology is that information is stored in an immutable ledger without the need for a central authority or intermediary. Despite this, not enough attention is paid to the negative impact created when an input to the blockchain is not trustworthy. iCash introduces the Proof of Trust (PoT) protocol as a multi-platform blockchain application that enables real-world inputs to be validated by decentralized participants in settling Smart Contracts at scale.

While Proof of Work and Proof of Stake provide distributed trust for data storage, the introduction of PoT provides distributed trust for data input. By adding a trustworthy application protocol layer, real world interaction and events can be verified before being entered into the blockchain. 

Proof of Work & Proof of Stake Based Systems

  • Blockchain offers immutability of computation and immutability of data
  • There is no mechanism to identify rogue data
  • With the irreversible nature of the blockchain this creates risk
  • “Proof of Work” and “Proof of Stake” cannot detect incoming data anomalies
Proof of Trust Based Systems

  • A separate layer of trust ensures that the data is reliable
  • The applicability of smart contracts multiplies with existence of such a layer
  • Proof of Trust (PoT) adds protection against rogue or incorrect data/inputs
  • Proof of Trust validates data/inputs
