Building the right BLOCKCHAIN architecture when it goes MAINSTREAM!

What if blockchain will go full “mainstream”? Is the crypto world ready for integration allowing enterprises to have business ready transactions? This is where Dispatch Labs comes in, which is to build the right architecture to make sure the blockchain will be adopted readily by the business world. Dispatch is the first blockchain protocol to leverage on-chain smart contracts to manage distributed storage of application data off-chain. The smart contracts “program” how data can be accessed, governed and linked, like a traditional SaaS-based centralized architecture.

The exciting part is Dispatch enables business ready applications to easily migrate to blockchain without sacrificing speed or functionality. By moving to the distributed architecture of blockchain, these business applications become much less susceptible to hacking or security breaches and cheaper to deploy and manage.


Dispatch is a fundamental evolution in blockchain technology. The Dispatch protocol is a new chain built with 3 core principals in mind:

1.Dispatch is backwards-compatible with Ethereum smart-contracts and the EVM: By using a modified version of the Ethereum Virtual Machine to Dispatch Virtual Machine (DVM), the Dispatch protocol is compatible with most Dapps currently under development. DVM will enable Dapp developers to build data-intensive business logic into smart-contracts.

2.Dispatch is scalable: Dispatch’s new consensus algorithm (DAPoS) Delegated Asynchronous Proof-of-Stake, DAPoS achieves high transaction throughput, with no transaction fees will make the usability of Dapps much more practical for businesses.

3.Dispatch handles lots of data: Most business logic involves data too big to fit in a shared ledger. Dispatch extends the functionality of Ethereum smart-contracts to support handling and accessing big off-chain data while allowing custom properties per Dapp.

The Dispatch network is a combination of innovative technologies combined with the best existing distributed systems protocols. The Dispatch Network allows smooth interactions between parties on and off-chain. Dispatch handles transactions in the shared ledger, and data or artifacts in the DAN (Dispatch Artifact Network). The DAN operates on a number of protocols like Kademlia DHT for Artifact discovery, Proof-of Replication (PoRep) to resist Sybil attacks, Proof-of-Retrievability (PoR) to ensure availability of Artifacts, and Make-it-Happen (MiH) protocol for efficient transfers of Artifacts.

Dispatch platform is actually designed to be a strong disruptive force in the crypto world but the Teams philosophy is to believe in responsible disruption. As a platform, Dispatch will enable a huge range of new DApps focused on real world usage, with the capacity for mass adoption. Content Delivery Networks, streaming services, peer-to-peer marketplaces, and big data analytics are just a few of the use cases which will now be able to transition to blockchain with Dispatch.

Dispatch is both a decentralized network where Dapp developers or individuals can sell, distribute, or store files, content, information, and data; and a framework for future data intensive computational applications.

Dispatch Testnet Alpha

Last May 21, Dispatch was able to successfully launched their first live Dispatch Testnet Alpha in which you can experience it for yourself. They even developed a starter Wallet UI so you can play around with your test ‘patches’. (link)


● Dispatch Labs have created their own consensus algorithm called Delegated Asynchronous Proof-of-Stake (DAPoS) which can achieve high throughput and low costs make the usability of Dapps much more practical for businesses.
● Based on their Dev Team they have already achieved up to 107,000 transaction per second on an ideal environment. They allow Atomic Swaps, No transaction fees, has Turing Complete Smart-Contracts, Compatible with Solidity and they have Off-chain Data Storage compared with predecessors like Etherium, EOS, NEM, NEO, Stellar, Dragonchain, Filecoin and Sia.
● Dispatch Labs has assembled a powerhouse well balanced Core Team coming from academics, business development, enterprises and blockchain tech. They also have a wide range Advisors coming from ConsenSys, Bancor, SingularDTV, Cronos,Wi-Fi Alliance, RootProject and The Bureau.
● They have already been featured in prominent media channels like Forbes, INC, Hufflington Post, Enterpreneur, Crypto Coin News, NuWire Investor and The Next Web.
● They have a wholistic approach on their roadmap not only addressing the technical development but creating a new ecosystem to support education, shepherd the development of the community and fund & incubate external projects which will benefit the overall ecosystem.
● They already have a working TESTNET Alpha and develop a starter Wallet and their Mainnet will launch on Q3 2018.

● They have a lot of competition right now in the blockchain industry claiming to achieve high-performance scaling from 100K to 1M TPS. Earlier competitors in the blockchain based business integration such as Morpheus Labs, Unibright and Sophia TX.
● Their hardcap is rather high with roughly $40 Million USD and pretty large total token supply of 25 Billion. Other coins have prevailed such as Siacoin which has 35B supply with a Market cap of $448 Million while Stellar has a huge 104B supply with a Market cap of $4.3 Billion. Also, they have not yet release their token distribution, private sale bonuses and token sale schedule.
● Dispatch has not really generated a huge HYPE right now and their Marketing presence is quite low thought they have multitudes of media channels and quite a number of press coverages.
● They have not yet disclose their strategic Industry Partners, Tie-ups and Institutional Investors.
