COTR features unlimited Realms, each its own independent public blockchain running on a network of nodes.
Every COTR Realm blockchain can host an unlimited variety of coins, and every coin is a first-class citizen.
Every COTR Address can be programmed with object-oriented methods representing contracts or just about anything.
COTR is highly secure using upto 2048-bit Elliptical Curve asymmetric cryptography with a 256-bit address space.
COTR includes upgradable security schemes, multi-signature, and automated rekeying on every transaction.
COTR allows pluggable consensus algorithms, including Proof-of-Luck, Proof-of-Stake, Proof-of-Capacity, and Proof-of-Work.
RESTful interfaces and WebSockets with JSON make it easy to create transactions and receive notifications.
Every blockchain upon creation is deployed across the entire COTR node network while each node has flexibility to whitelist and blacklist.
Multiple coin types can co-exist on the same blockchain and each coin is sent the same way and can be used for fees.
Every blockchain is independent eliminating congestion, contention and competition for transactions.
Cross-chain trades are facilitated by an uber blockchain which is required by validating or mining nodes.
Choose or create your own pluggable consensus protocol, including Proof of Luck, Proof of Stake, Proof of Work, and more.
Highly secure using upto 2048-bit Elliptical Curve asymmetric cryptography with a 256-bit address space.
For sheer transaction speed nothing beats the speed of multi-threaded C++ on a hyperthreaded multi-core CPU.
Set any address or method to multi-signature policies for joint, majority, supermajority or unanimous consent.
Every address is a smart-object with properties and methods that can represent a contract, post, article, media, or even a lightbulb.
Automated replacement of keys and upgradable key security currently supporting upto 2048-bit encryption and a 256-bit address space.
A marketplace for miners allows a choice of blockchains to mine according to consensus algorithm, difficulty, block rewards, fees, contract rewards.
A universal wallet allows sending cryptocurrency, or calling other smart-object methods on any realm from any mobile or desktop device.
Integrated and pairable payment terminals insert payment ids in transactions allowing payments to be instantly and uniquely identified.
A whitelisted dedicated public blockchain allows low powered devices to receive only transactions for the home, business or venue.
White-labeled wallets allow any community, organization or project to roll out their own branded wallet dedicated to their blockchain.
Set support friendly key policies using multi-sig to unlock customer keys.
Assign one or more names to any address using a naming Smart-Object for each blockchain.
Assign one or more names to each blockchain using a naming Smart-Object on the uber blockchain.
Your HD wallet can replace the key after every transaction automatically to prevent brute force public key attacks.
Communities, organizations, and projects instantly create their own blockchain and mint coins to distribute or offer them to members and users. Incentivizing involvement in the platform or community will revolutionize engagement and participation.
We made choices at every step to make it easier for developers to build, test, and deploy their blockchain and cryptocurrency powered platforms. Using JSON on RESTful, WebSockets, and Object Oriented interfaces makes everything intuitive, human readable, responsive, and fast.
We were inspired by the power of BitTorrent to share information without censorship and saw the opportunity for an immutable platform, not only for money, but for discussion, voting, web services, and trustless relationships. At the same time we saw the disadvantages of other platforms that crowd out innovation with contention.
Communities create their own coins unconstrained by congestion, contention and competition for transaction bandwidth, and using their own coins as fees. Ultimately the value of their economy is based on the success of the platform, offerings, and discourse.
