Open protocols enable a network of interconnected applications created by independent software developers. These protocols enable users to understand and control how their data is used.
The decentralized registry enables independent services to discover and interact with each other. The registry is the nexus of reputation for users, developers, services, and applications.
The Wireline compute protocols enable services to operate across trusted cloud and untrusted blockchain environments. Developers can freely choose from independent compute providers, or run their own private infrastructure.
The entire ecosystem serves the Wireline economy: a token-based global network of developers, businesses and end users. With fully transparent, blockchain-based systems of reputation, staking, and exchange, Wireline operates as a true meritocracy.
