*UPDATE: The Public Sale is officially OVER! We want to thank everyone who joined us and participated in the sale. We will be sharing the results and next steps in another article shortly. Stay tuned!

Dear Titan community,

Since 2018, when this company was founded, we’ve been working arduously to bring the best possible solutions for optimizing crypto mining at scale. Now, after more than three years of development, it is with great excitement that we announce that the whitelisting for the Lumerin token public sale is live on Tokensoft. Stay tuned for more sale details in a subsequent post!

Introduction

In this post, you will learn everything you need to know about the Lumerin Protocol and how to sign up for the public sale. Below, you will find information about:

What is Titan?

Titan is a company founded in 2018 by Ryan Condron, Jeff Garzik, and Matthew Roszak. We provide powerful software and services for crypto mining at scale, as well as North America’s first enterprise-grade mining pool.

Our mission is to make crypto mining as highly optimized, efficient, and decentralized as possible.

In our efforts, we’ve found that centralization is a growing problem. Logically, hashrate concentrates in specific locations where miners have access to cheap, clean energy, friendly government regulations, and proper infrastructure. Wherever these three factors exist, you will see a strong attraction for proof-of-work mining companies to establish a presence. And as these driving factors are essentially unstoppable, they will continue to focus and centralize the creation of IT infrastructure in these locations for crypto mining.

The 3 factors that drive hashrate centralization.

Although these conditions make mining easier and help the industry grow, the concentration of hashrate in these particular locations poses a risk of centralization. It puts miners in a tight spot should their respective governments decide to impose restrictions.

That is why we’ve decided to build Lumerin: a decentralized, peer-to-peer, smart contract protocol that enables hashrate commoditization and re-routing.

Make sure to visit our website to learn more.

What is the Lumerin Protocol?

The Lumerin Protocol will be a decentralized, peer-to-peer, trustless network powered by blockchain technology and smart contracts that will enable data stream routing. Essentially, any “asset” (such as hashrate, videos, etc.) that is delivered via TCP/IP connections can be combined with a real-time oracle to support the asset creator in maximizing buyer access across any number of multiple delivery channels.

Through the Protocol, miners from all around the world will be able to sell hashpower regardless of their geographical location, while buyers will have complete control over it.

Unlike other tokenized hashrate projects that only grant holders with a portion of the mining revenue, Lumerin will enable buyers to actually re-route and control the acquired hashrate, meaning that they can choose where to point the hashrate.

Lumerin hashrate rerouting model.

How will it work?

Initially, we are implementing our first-use case of the Lumerin Protocol to support a hashpower marketplace. Miners will be able to create smart contracts and put their computing power up for sale. Through the very same contract, a buyer can purchase and acquire it by locking the required payment. The Lumerin blockchain then records the contract, and the hashpower is re-routed from the seller’s device to the buyer’s destination.

Using this technology enables the marketplace to function in a completely decentralized dynamic, making proof-of-work hashrate a tradable, liquid financial asset, unlocking mining profitability, and providing greater access to capital and investments.

Lumerin combines smart contracts with a TCP/IP proxy router.

Using simple smart contracts we create a peer-to-peer and decentralized platform that is essentially a DEX for hashpower. Through this platform, we:

  • Give miners better access to larger markets for their crypto compute power
  • Allow others to buy/sell compute power at reduced risk
  • Provide additional opportunities for the entire mining industry through financial derivatives/futures and services for lending, custody, OTC, and trading.

The Lumerin Protocol will make proof-of-work hashrate a tradable, liquid financial commodity, unlocking mining profitability and increasing access to capital and investments for crypto miners and others who need access to hashpower.

Lumerin acts as a “thin layer” platform that sits between the mining infrastructure and the proof-of-work crypto tokens. This enables the computing power needed for crypto hashing to be easily switched from one crypto token, DeFi application, etc. to another depending on need and market pricing.

Lumerin use cases for the future of proof-of-work hashrate.

Lumerin token distribution

The Lumerin Token will be an integral part of the hashpower marketplace. Its functionality and utility will support the efficient creation of both hashpower smart contracts and the Lumerin validator nodes in creating a secure, decentralized, environment.

The Lumerin token is the basic economic unit of the Lumerin protocol. Growth in the value of the token is driven by establishing an economic flywheel, supported by the Titan Hashpower Marketplace.

Through the use of proceeds from the token allocations we will fund projects that further develop the Lumerin Protocol software, applications, tools and integrations, as well as ensuring the growth of the Lumerin open source ecosystem.
