The Trustchain Protocol
As an infrastructure protocol based over DAG, COTI offers a highly adaptable solution to leverage the scalability created by the DAG and ranking engine while ensuring equitable operations within the arbitration layer. The Trustchain replaces third party centralised trust with a proven mathematical algorithm, thus enabling value to be exchanged as safely and efficiently as information is exchanged on the Internet. The first use case of the technology to be developed is COTI PAY which specifically addresses the consumer-merchant payment industry.
COTI’S blockless payment system is based on a directed acyclic graph (DAG).
Innovating from blockchain technology, this improved protocol is highly scalable and centered around trust
