Cooperative Server Pre-Reservation
Six plus One Reasons to Reserve Now
#1: Capacity for the real world token economy

The most popular cryptocurrencies are optimised for decentralisation, not purpose. In a zero trust environment, Proof of Work, which ultimately means Proof of Electricity Wasted, is a systematic inefficiency required for the basic function of the system. That inefficiency makes these systems largely unusable for larger real world applications. In order to overcome these inefficiencies, single points of failure are reintroduced through off-chain settlement systems.

Notary Trade is different. Built upon the most open high performance architecture in the world, security through transparency is practised through the entire technology stack. The systems are then run by professionals in secure data centres, orchestrated by a cooperative of users, service providers and investors. The cooperative ensures there is no single point of failure and no single point of compromise, while guaranteeing influence and transparency to all its users, private or institutional. That way the full capacity of the resulting platform is available for real world blockchain applications.

#2: Authenticity for investments and Token Generation Events

Cryptocurrencies and their Token Generation Events (TGE) / Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) provide flexible and easy-to-launch investment opportunities, allowing startups and companies to quickly raise funds without intermediaries. Investors enjoy the ability to invest and divest in uniquely flexible ways. At the same time, the principles of privacy and anonymity built into cryptocurrencies, along with lack of verification of the investment have led to abuse and the call for best practice enforcement. There is an urgent, growing need for a trusted space for cryptocurrency business.

Notary Trade is the answer, allowing Cryptocurrency platforms and TGE/ICO providers to verify the authenticity of the TGE/ICO and its compliance with defined best practice. This reduces risk of abuse for all parties that participate in an TGE/ICO.

#3: Cooperative instead of Oligopoly

Economies of scale in combination with inefficiencies (see #1) always create a stong tendency for centralisation. So while decentralisation was the most important goal for system design for the most popular cryptocurrencies, the actual result looks more like an oligopoly. And sometimes those concentrations are geographical. Over 65% of Bitcoin mining happens within the jurisdiction of China, for instance.

Notary Trade is fundamentally open and democratic, based on the proven principles of the cooperative. Each member of the cooperative, including institutions, have one vote, creating an antidote to centralisation. Every member of the cooperative receives the reporting from the cooperative about state and distribution of the systems, about where those systems are placed, the level of distribution, and more. So as a member of the cooperative, your ability to verify, and trust will be higher than in any other comparable blockchain network.

#4: Your digital DocSafe with notarisation

Your most important contracts, valuables, documents of personal nature are typically all stored in a bank vault or with your notary. Digital documents do not enjoy this kind of security to date. Encryption is complex and hard to use, backups get lost and may result in accidental disclosure, lack of backups may result in loss of data. The cloud solutions that offer these kinds of services are always under someone else’s control, and their motivation is not aligned with yours in a lot of critical cases. Self-hosting is often promoted as a solution, but in reality the technical and IT security know how required to safeguard personal information well nearly always goes far beyond the average user’s competence. Even IT professionals usually do not have the time and patience required to maintain their own data safely at home.

NotaryTRADE turns this around by giving you full ownership of your NotarySERVER, ensuring it is using the best technology, hosted to the highest security standards, with top IT security professionals monitoring it 24/7. It is your server, and the data centre, managed services company and security team become your contracted agents. This increases security for everyone, both legally and technically.

A combination of hardware upkeep and redundancy will ensure high reliability of your server. In addition, backups are made unnecessary by the option to store encrypted fragments of your data across the network with levels of redundancy you choose and for which you compensate others. Simultaneously you can choose to store encrypted fragments of data from other NotaryTRADE users, receiving compensation from them in return.

#5: Law and Notary Services

In the physical world there are some things you will often want to leave in the hands of your notary or lawyer, such as sensitive personal documents, keys to bank boxes containing valuables, and so on. Like that, the legal professional of your choice can deal with succession procedures, or can hold documents for journalists or whistleblowers that are to be made public at a later date or when certain circumstances occur. Up until now there has been nothing even vaguely similar in the digital world.

Notary Trade provides a digital DocSafe with built-in notarisation options. It allows you to keep your data private, to place it in "eyes only" escrow, to share, to collaborate, and even to publish -- all while you remain in control. All of this can be interlinked with the lawyer or notary of your confidence and choice, allowing you to for instance define what we call "Notarized Time Capsules". These are bundles of encrypted digital assets and files of any kind. Files can be documents, images, videos, and key and access tokens for online services -- think usernames and passwords to payment platforms, social media, etc. These are often as valuable as physical objects and the kind of things you will want your lawyer or notary to keep safe and pass on.

Your trusted legal professional will work with you to define this capsule. Together you will determine the criteria, which can then execute automatically, or upon manual confirmation of events by a designated third party, typically your lawyer or notary.

#6: Regulation ready

Blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies are going to disrupt most sectors of finance and economy in ways that are slowly becoming apparent. Projections in banking giants are seeing up to 80% of their revenue disappear in just a couple of years. And increasingly, criminals have discovered cryptocurrencies for their purposes. Much like the Internet became the subject of regulation, cryptocurrencies are going to find themselves drawn into the international regulatory frameworks. When that happens, entire cryptocurrencies may become illegal or disappear virtually overnight.

NotaryTRADE has been carefully crafted to be compliant with existing regulations, including Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) provisions. We based this upon a plethora of legal and financial services experience within our team and advisory board. You will find all that reflected in our FAQ and the NotaryTRADE Loyalty and Rewards Programme. Together with our team, advisors and partners we will work with all relevant authorities in order to maintain full compliance while protecting your privacy and making available the enormous benefits of the blockchain economy.
