For Developers

Polygravity is a smart contract ready, high throughput, end-to-end, decentralized, real-time transaction system with a cryptographically authenticated audit trail stored in a multi-Blockchain DAG ledger system.

The Trust Network works with Proof of History and Proof of Authenticator Identity consensus algorithms to authenticate transactions and enter blocks into the relevant blockchain.

Tokens are not required for trusted transactions to happen, instead trading parties can exchange any form of digital information about any given asset at any given value.

Tokens are not required for trusted transactions to happen, instead trading parties can exchange any form of digital information about any given asset at any given value.

Polygravity will provide a universal API to the backend system allowing developers to build unique applications through an easy toolkit. More information to follow soon.

Scalability
Unlimited scalable system architecture because…
…system size grows with log(n) on local nodes, where n is the number of locally stored packets
…system speed complexity is log(m), where m is the block size of the processing node/high availability cluster (HA Clusters)
…global system efficiency is constant with growing number of system nodes / HA Clusters
…real-time blockchain protocol secured transaction with <4kb data packets size are a pilot proven reality with Polygravity’s functioning MVP


Security
Highly secure system architecture because…
…the system design is hardened against DDoS attacks
…it’s multi-level security is designed to protect cryptographic keys
…it’s multi-lateral security design for access control is based on POSIX groups
…of privilege separation to restrict micro service access to cryptographic key data
…the overall micro service architecture was developed using the principle of least privileged
…the system is quantum computing proof due to exchangeable cryptographic core algorithms


Reliability
Complete data reliability because…
…transactions are unalterable and cryptographically sealed with zero-knowledge-proof digital time stamps (Proof of History)
…the system does not require tokens to execute a cryptographically, blockchain secured, transaction providing regulatory certainty to business applications
…transaction costs are minimal and remain constant and stable, through prompt Proof of History and Proof of Authenticator Identity consensus algorithms


Flexibility
Highly applicable system flexibility because…
…all crypto processes are system parameters and freely configurable to match application specific requirements
…it works with any existing POSIX compatible legacy system due to system level API (system C-Libraries)


Privacy
Data confidentiality is not an issue because…
…exchanged data is only readable by authorized parties with an audit trail stored in private ledgers
…all transactions are executed with zero-knowledge-proof cryptographic notarization
…the system can “forget” past transactions if required by application in line with the “right to forget”


Minimal Viable Product (MVP)
• MVP developed under defensive programming and test driven development paradigms
• Key exchange through Elliptic Curve Algorithm
• Encryption with XSalsa20
• Route authentication and DDoS mitigation through Poly1305 in combination with XSalsa20
• Edwards-Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (EdDSA, RFC8032) for digital signature
• Single-node test on a 2009 2.93 GHz i7 870 processor achieved about 12’000 tx/sec, scaling limitation was purely set by hardware
