Companies and governments watch over us and control all of our data. Having lack of alternatives, participation requires obedience.
Applications must implement their own security, which is costly and time consuming. Mistakes are unforgiving and often exploited.
Blockchains incentivize network growth, but have difficulty using system resources. Bandwidth, storage, memory, and processing are under-utilized.
Decentralized networks know how to make use of system resources, but have difficulty incentivizing network growth.
As our lives become more digitized, the risks and consequences of exposure and data hacks become greater. It is time for a solution that mitigates this risk.
Blockchains solve problems that we could not before, but face scalability issues that need to be fixed for adoption and growth. Innovative solutions are now necessary.
Promether is a new type of network called an Adaptive Symbiotic Network (ASN). Based on the principles of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Ubiquitous Computing, it allows anybody to create secure and anonymous networks simply by deploying and configuring a series of reusable software components. It is an open-source, component-based, reusable system that abstracts the details of the secure network from the applications that use it. Supporting centralized, decentralized, distributed, meshnet, and hybrid topologies, any application can communicate and transfer data securely.
Build modern applications with a security based, open-source API, without added responsibilities or costs of building networking and security infrastructures.
Configurable as public, private or global network, providing users variety in how to use the network based on individual preferences and networking requirements.
Configurable as public, private or global network, providing users variety in how to use the network based on individual preferences and networking requirements.
Communicate securely, privately, instantly and effortlessly without the threat of surveillance or the risks of private data and conversations being exposed.
Secure and share data safely without reliance on third parties, interception by corporations and governments, exposure to hackers, or systematic failures.
Integrate with existing applications and blockchains, old or new, and benefit from advanced security protocols without added costs.
A blockchain based network that offers reliable scalability and performance at all times, as well as adapts to emerging technologies when needed.
Fortify all devices and online traffic through ensured confidentiality of data and removal of interception or exposure risks.
Enable everyone access to decentralized networking and the benefits of blockchain solutions, regardless of financial status.
Promether has a Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain with utility ownership, stake incentivization, and coin-based rewards. The native coin (PYRO) will be created on the blockchain prior to the initial offering. PYRO derives value from its utility and functionality in the ecosystem and will serve to merge blockchain-based incentivization with decentralized networks and start rewarding nodes for donating unused capacities.
As Promether is a true utility, PYRO serves as digital representation of the total ownership in the network. A person who owns a percentage of all the PYRO is fundamentally really just a percentile proprietor of the total capacity of the network. PYRO's utility is defined in terms of total network capacity, where capacity is a combination of network bandwidth, hard drive space, memory, and CPU/GPU processing power.
In the minting stage of PYRO, a total of 300 million coins will be generated, of which 30 million (10%) coins will be minted and held in reserve to be used only for miner incentivization until the year 2100. PYRO has a fixed supply, so no additional coins will be generated afterwards. For a more detailed explanation of PYRO's economics, please refer to our Whitepaper.
