Abstract: How to create a spatially trusted data source that benefits the world of blockchains under the high pressure of traditional Internet companies?
Recently, Thenextweb reported that IBM’s new AR blockchain patent exists a huge loophole (reported at https://thenextweb.com/hardfork/2018/11/05/ibm-blockchain-ar-game/). The article points out that IBM’s latest patents combined with augmented reality (AR), mechanical learning, and blockchain have significant flaws in security because “there are no spatially trusted data sources, and it is easy for cheaters to abuse the system”(original words: But without oracles in place, it could prove too easy for cheaters to abuse the system. ).
A few days ago, GoWithMi founder Li Dong asserted at both the Mars Finance 2018 Blockchain (New York) Summit and the Crypto Invest Summit on October 24th, that “the current blockchain urgently needs a spatial trusted data source. Just as the mobile phone map industry has made the mobile Internet era, the blockchain plus the space value components can truly detonate the blockchain era. “Unexpectedly, the assertion was “in a word” on IBM’s new patent.
According to the understanding that GoWithMi is currently the only project in the world that focuses on spatial trusted data sources and has been applied to the ground. It is understood that GoWithMi is currently the only project in the world that focuses on spatial trusted data sources and has been applied to the field. At present, it has provided services in Indonesia and has received strong support from the Indonesian government. It has become an official partner of the 2018 Jakarta Asian Games. The incident was reported by the official Chinese media, the People’s Daily (http://sports.people.com.cn/n1/2018/0720/c202403-30160620.html).
There are tens of thousands of existing blockchain projects. Why is it only that GoWithMi is committed to solving the problem of spatially trusted data sources in blockchains? The answer is simple; it is because this direction has moved away from the core interests of traditional center companies. At present, all Internet companies have the same essential business logic — “information monopoly” (for details, see GoWithMi article https://dwz.cn/HxlnweFC), traditional Internet companies regard maps as imprisoned, and they invest heavily in maps. The high barriers to construction are unimaginable for non-employees, and the industry has called the map a “50 billion dollar club membership card”.
How to create a trusted data source that benefits the blockchain world under the pressure of traditional Internet companies? GoWithMi needs to answer two questions: “How to create a map data source that can’t be deceived and continuously updated” and “How to build a map service that cannot be hijacked and never stops”.
Both issues require finding answers in the blockchain world. For data sources, GoWithMi focuses on two methods:
- Stimulate production with the Token economy. In the current production relationship, most producers only receive a salary, but the company receives a return on production value, and the producer cannot obtain the final benefit share. A good Token economic model design should allow the production value of everyone to “decentralized production, decentralized verification, and decentralized exchange” to ensure that producers (users) receive dividends of the final value. GoWithMi adopts a dual Token mechanism, especially the GoZone Token mechanism, which guarantees the long-term benefits of users.
2. Zero thresholds cooperative game. To prevent a few people from collectively cheating on data, a good approach is to introduce more equal rights participants (actor). The most significant innovation in Bitcoin is giving everyone the right to maintain data so that no one can control over the data. GoWithMi also gives everyone the right to maintain maps. Users are also maintainers. Everyone participates in data contribution, data validation, and data maintenance, minimizing the cheats by a few users.
If the production and maintenance of data are greatly dependent on the economic system and the design of the consensus game in the blockchain, then the decentralized map service relies heavily on the technical system in the blockchain. All traditional Internet services face the challenge of data synchronization when they transform to decentralization. Although the existing blockchain technology can ensure the synchronization of data at all nodes, most traditional Internet services’ total data reliance far exceeds the current BTC and ETH total data volume. Although the existing blockchain technology can ensure the synchronization of data at all nodes, most traditional Internet services rely on the total amount of data of the current BTC and ETH. Taking the map as an example, the global basic map data size is over 100 G, and the map data is updated at least in minutes. It is obvious that the synchronization demand has far exceeded the theoretical upper limit of the existing blockchain performance.
Therefore, we need to do the opposite. GoWithMi proposes a technical solution to transform the map service to adapt it to the blockchain technology system, thus proposing the Space Shard Chain solution.
Specifically, GoWithMi allows all map-related services to be decoupled based on spatial grids. That is, for local nodes, only require synchronization on partially correlated map grid data for providing complete local services. Compared to the global map data size of over a hundred G, each grid size is only a few M or even hundreds of K, which is compatible with the existing blockchain synchronization technology. The local node will automatically adjust the local map data range according to the request. The local nodes with the same map range will automatically form the Space Shard Chain. GoWithMi uses the Space Shard Chain as the basis to build a globally distributed map platform.
The fast-growing sharing economy and O2O economy prove that the supply and demand can be automatically matched just through the map-based space scheduling service. Through the map service, Uber matched the driver and the customer, Airbnb matched the landlord and tenant, and Meituan matched the diners and restaurants. The smart contract of the blockchain proves that anyone can conduct trusted and secure transactions without the need for a centralized end. GoWithMi sees the great prospect of combining the two, providing a complete set of innovative “three-in-one” solutions: spatial consensus, location-based profit sharing, and spatial co-governance, driving community members to participate in the production, distribution, and management of spatial information. Acquire profit-sharing incentives based on trusted locations and clear ownership rights and ensure the healthy and sustainable development of ecosystems with a spatial joint governance model, thus creating a one-stop food, clothing, housing and living service platform, driving the widespread deployment of distributed businesses.
