What is Akroma?
“Akroma is a cryptocurrency and application development platform focused on creating a governance model that will reward long-term, sustainable development and design.” -Akroma.io
But, what does that mean?
Simply put Akroma, or AKA, is designed to be a cryptocurrency usable as currency for transactions of goods and services between parties. As well as a base for developing applications that run on the blockchain for Akroma. This is handled by the Masternode system which is the foundation of transaction validation and help to protect and scale Akroma as needed. Masternodes currently cost 5000 AKA.
The other defining feature of Akroma is Decentralized Oracles which allow smart contracts to pull data from outside the network which allow for many advantages but the biggest advantage of all is; smart contracts cannot function without some data source. Without access to these sources of information, use cases for smart contracts drop to just a tiny fraction of their potential. This is the power that Oracles bring to the blockchain!
- No major protocol changes
- Continuous integration of upstream changes
- Focus on UX (user experience)
- Consumer over Enterprise
