YOSEMITE

General Purpose Public Blockchain for Business

NO ICO

Without a native crypto-currency, YOSEMITE is a public blockchain that uses real money (e.g. USD, EUR, CNY)

Proof-of-Transaction

To overcome the shortcomings of current public blockchains, we developed a more reasonable and fair consensus algorithm, Proof-of-Transaction (PoT)

General Business Platform

YOSEIMTE is a public blockchain designed for government and enterprise uses

Using a volitile native crypto-currency causes a great hindrance in running a business.
YOSEMITE resolves that problem by using tokens that have their values pegged to government-approved fiat money

YOSEMITE's unique Proof-of-Transaction consensus algorithm,
which allows only the direct contributors to the blockchain to create blocks and get rewarded, can address the
fundamental problems in PoW, PoS consensus algorithms and sustain a fair and reasonable operation.

Finally, governments and companies globally have a capable underlying system to utilize the advantages of
blockchain and conduct sustainable policies and businesses

Technology

Stable Coin

Fiat-pegged stable coins, such as dUSD (digital-USD), are issued by trust entities (Depositories) as the native cryptocurrency of the blockchain. A trust entity such as a government or trusted financial institution backs the stable coins with an equivalent fiat money reserve.

Proof-of-Transaction

By using Transaction-as-a-Vote (TaaV) mechanism, Proof-of-Transaction is a new consensus algorithm that rewards the service providers that directly generate transactions on the blockchain. It is more reasonable and fair than existing PoW or PoS algorithms.

Decentralized Exchange

YOSEMITE provides a built-in decentralized exchange to trade digital assets issued by depositories, including fiat tokens, cryptocurrencies, and real assets such as real-estate and artworks.

On/off-chain hybrid token exchange

YOSEMITE offers On/Off-chain hybrid token exchange mechanism that anchors large volume of transactions that get resolved off-chain to a decentralized storage (IPFS) and blockchain, to achieve scability for services such as High Frequency Trading or Micropayments.

Trust network for account recovery

YOSEMITE supports multi-sig blockchain accounts, creating a trust network that allows users to recover their accounts. Such a trust network is a cornerstone in creating a secure and stable ecosystem, by greatly mitigating blockchain technology's innate security risks associated with lost or stolen private keys.

KYC/AML compliant blockchain

On YOSEMITE, it can be configured that only the accounts verified by trust entities' KYC/AML process can own and participate in transactions. This support mechanism can address the financial regulatory compliance issues that services on other public blockchains struggle with.

Team

YOSEMITE was founded by YT Kim. Through an encounter in 2013 with Shawn Fanning — founder of the P2P-based music distribution service Napster, a precursor to blockchain technology — YT came to settle down in Silicon Valley. He then embarked on his journey of improving blockchain technology and developing a service that would lead to its mass adoption by the public.
