Archain Pre-Sale DetailsArchain: A de-centralised internet archive inside a cryptocurrency that truly scales.
Archain uses a revolutionary new blockweave data structure, based on a new Proof of Access algorithm. While maintaining all of the benefits of traditional Proof of Work systems, the novel Proof of Access algorithm solves the problem of blockchain scalability by creating a self-organising data storage network.
Mining a new block in the Archain requires not only the current block in the system, but also a randomly selected previous block, too. This incentivises miners to store as much of the chain as they can, focusing particularly on blocks that are not well-mirrored by others.
Proof of Access and the blockweave allow Archain to reach internet-scale.
Archain works beyond the reaches of traditional censorship by mirroring data globally.
Archain uses a blockweave structure to cryptographically weave together archived data, making it impossible to remove or alter that data once it has been stored.
Archain allows users to make use of a distributed consensus algorithm to prove the contents of web pages before they are placed in the archive.
