THE SYSTEM YOU CREATE

The Internet was born during the cold-war between USA and Russia. It was supposed to provide operational and communicational capabilities in case of a nuclar strike. The idea was to decentralize the nature of COMMUNICATION services. Soon ARPANET, the first COMMUNICATION network running a TCP/IP protocol was born. Business quickly noticed the potential and here we are - in year 2017 with billions of devices connected World-Wide.

Is Internet, as FREE and decentralized as, it was supposed to be? Can't government agencies or network providers sniff on us, collect various amounts of metadata? Don't we want to be really FREE? What about regions in the world where it is not worthy for large companies to invest into the required communicational infrastructure? What about the ENERGY trade. How do we trade energy when everything 'goes off' ? And even if it does not, aren't there better possibilities than reliance on centralised grid environmets?


There are 3,200 utilities that make up the U.S. electrical grid, the largest machine in the world. These POWER companies sell $400 billion worth of electricity a year, mostly derived from burning fossil fuels in centralized stations and distributed over 2.7 million miles of POWER lines. Regulators set rates; utilities get guaranteed returns; investors get sure-thing dividends. It’s a model that hasn’t changed much since Thomas Edison invented the LIGHT bulb.


We all live in this world and do not need much explanation on how things work. Now, what if we told you that all the data exchange, energy trade, energy production, energy transmission, essantial data storage could all be completely decentralized ? Sold, bought, produced, exchanged the way people see fit. Effectively thwarting any kinds of invigilation and being environmentally FRIENDLY.



What if I told you that we could have ..

.. A BETTER WORLD

One which is completely DECENRALISED. Where people are incentivized to deliver information to others while ensuring confidentiality. They help each other on top of the Internet, but through any kind of wireless-enabled devices as well. This found to be useful in city agglomerations, on the streets but also became ESSENTIAL in rural regions of Africa. This is the World where nobody can sniff on you.

World, where there is no spam and denial of service attacks - since dispatch of each packet costs money. Where each participant is responsible for his actions with a stake. You can produce ENERGY and sell it to whoever you wish thanks to real-time auctions. World where others can not get your wealth away from you. You can assign computational tasks to those who would be rewarded for each and every executed instruction and consumed amount of memory. You do not need to trust others and yet allow anyone to deliver your data - they are not be able to control you or get to know you anyway.

Looking back, was that possible with any other blockchain technology? No. We have re-invented the entire concept of Smart Contracts. Part of the GRIDNET Project constitutes a novel communication system.

We formulated the first communication protocol which rewards intermediaries of a data exchange for each and every byte they help to deliver. Network topology doesn't need to be known. Here, anyone can become a telecommunication company. Anyone can become a power company or a power transmission company and be rewarded for every produced or transmitted kWh. Without formalities. Impossible? Now imagine all that done in units of a single cryptocurrency.

When it comes to power, we've deployed blockchain enabled smart meters and smart controlers which are as self-sustaining as possible. Equipped with all the before mentioned communication capablities.


WELCOME to the world of GRIDNET.

Decentralise Everything With Us

All we do is backed by SCIENCE. Every major research result is reviewed by the scientific community and either published at a well-established conference or in a scientific journal.

  • We designed the first communication protocol which rewards intermediaries of a data exchange on a PER-BYTE basis.
    Whitepaper published at IEEE ICOIN 2017 in Vietnam
  • We proposed the first fully decentralized architecture for use in SMART GRID Environments.
    Whitepaper published at IEEE SmartGridComm 2017 in Germany
  • Other scientific papers are under review as you read. That is why we wait till reviews complete before publishing explicit details. Even MORE are on the way.

BASIC INFORMATION

JOIN THE GRIDNET ICO

Make a difference together with us. Why do we need an ICO? The code base of our project is almost finished this includes The , MINING SOFTWARE, GRID SCRIPT execution environments and WALLETs . Yet, it is a very big project. Probably one of the most sophisticated and ambitious blockchain projects ever created. From the 30% gathered through the Initial Coin Offering we would fund research and development of intelligent Smart Meters compliant with our technology, as well as, speed up development of particular milestones visible on the roadmap. The CORE CLIENT, MINING SOFWARE and GRID SCRIPT execution environment would be made available two months after the main phase of initial coin offering ends.


Team Investments

The project is developed at the POZNAN UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY in Poland. Other than that, we've been working with multiple third parties to bring the project forward including the help of the Botan crypto-library development team. 15% of all the funds gathered through the Initial Coin Offering would go to a long-term salary fund. These would be steadily released to all the parties who help bring the project further, including developers and admins watching over the forums.

Long-Term Investments

Every technology, every project needs advertising and cooperation with various kinds of parties. This is especially true with GRIDNET . One of our roadmap goals includes development of a new SMART ENERGY METER. Further goals include the development of low-cost wireless routers which would be able to operate in harsh environments. Here at the POZNAN UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY we've got a very large scientist base. We employ scientists from the areas of Computer Science, Materals, Signal Processing and various other fields.

Purchasers

All of the purchased coins would be rewarded to buyers at the time of initial wallet release.

INITIAL REWARD RATE

Important:
When the system goes Live (31st January 2018); you will be asked to send a very small BTC/Eth amount in order to prove your ownership.


Please keep your BTC/Eth wallet safe at all times.

Fully Distributed GRIDNET Protocol, with No Trusted Authorities

Abstract— The flow of information among people in today’s world is essential. People need to exchange data, but they also need to store larger chunks of data for future retrieval. Various business schemes have grown by feeding themselves on these assumptions. Some of them provide the needed infrastructure, such as, cables or wireless base stations in case of GSM/LTE networks, while others provide complimentary storage capabilities (cloud storage services). In this paper, we introduce a Fully Distributed GRIDNET protocol (FD-GRIDNET). It facilitates a solution to a problem of motivating users to intercede in a data exchange. MANET/DTN networks were envisioned as a target environment, however we do not restrain our protocol by design only to such. FD-GRIDNET is the first fully distributed data exchange protocol, which rewards intermediaries with a cryptocurrency, one created on behalf of the described communication system itself. It constitutes a communication system with a closed economy cycle, where acting as a router earns cryptocurrency, which in turn can be used for one’s own needs, such as, but not limited to – data transmission. Indeed, FD-GRIDNET can be said to facilitate a cryptocurrency of its own. It builds upon a proof-of-work concept, but introduces elements of proof-of-stake as well.

EVERYTHING WE DO IS BACKED ENTIRELY BY PURE RESEARCH AND SCIENCE.



On The Applicability of GridNet Protocol To Smart Grid Environments

Abstract— The blockchain technology seems to be regarded by many, as a revolution, on the scale comparable to the advent of the Internet. The blockchain by itself is a rather simple data structure. The cryptocurrency design details account for the security of the underlying system. In this work, we present the design of our cryptographic system for use in Smart Grid environments. The mechanism is to incentivize distribution of greenfield energy, but also, to handle and encourage the required data transmission and storage. In our design, the value of cryptocurrency, as well as, of the energy itself, is determined solely by forces of supply and demand. Our design is unique in that, Smart Meters are the only trusted actors. We stress the importance of features required by, such a system; to be regarded as secure, distributed and indeed - decentralized. We advocate, that a smart-meter is the only element required to be trusted; and that should hold true only in regard to making energy measurements. We show, why a cryptocurrency based system, which we have designed, is particularly suitable for energy-distribution scenarios, especially in limited-trust environments, where anonymity and security of data transmission are of the essence. Our hereby proposed system provides a fully distributed market for prosumers, customers, power line owners and any other entities involved in both energy and data distribution. In this paper we focus on the architectural design.

GRIDSCRIPT LANGUAGE

Real World Wide Computer

Imagine a LANGUAGE. Which is able to modify itself, is TURING complete AND on top of that has a support of pointers, dynamic memory allocation and runs inside of an environment which ensures security and garbage collections mechanisms.

A LANGUAGE which is actually easy and comfortable to use. In order to ensure a pleasurable experience for all the developers WORLDWIDE we have actually gone to the extent of modifying crypto libraries. As an example, only one line of code is enough to generate a KEY PAIR which can be then used to either SIGN or ENCRYPT your data.

  • CODE execution happens not only on full nodes but might get delegated through SMART CONTRACTS to other computers. (whitepaper under review)
