Validating Blockchain Transactions

PROOF OF TRUST

iCash’s Proof of Trust protocol takes the risk out of Smart Contracts so they can finally gain institutional adoption. Settlement is validated by a distributed network before it is dedicated to the blockchain, ensuring trustworthiness.

Proof of Trust Protocol
The precise and indelible nature of Smart Contracts demands trustworthy data.

The automation and immutability that makes Smart Contracts so appealing also has the potential to derail their viability.

While Proof of Work and Proof of Stake provide distributed trust for data storage, the introduction of Proof of Trust provides distributed trust for data input.


Just as  courts and lawyers provide a vital validation and appeals processes for paper contracts, iCash’s PoT Delegates provide the same process for digital Smart Contracts.

Proof of Work & Proof of Stake Based Systems

  • Computation ensures Data is immutable when written
  • Only confirms data, does not check the data
  • No mechanism to detect rogue incoming data inputs anomalies
  • Irreversible inputs create risk for invalid data being perpetuated
iCash’s Proof of Trust Based Systems

  • Additional layer of trust audits data inputs for reliability
  • Increases  Smart Contract applicability
  • Added protection against rogue or incorrect data inputs
  • Validates data inputs
iCash Regulatory Approach
