The Geeq Project White Paper

GeeqChain is a new approach to distributed ledger technology that uses a proprietary validation protocol called Proof of Honesty (PoH). PoH empowers users who hold tokens on any GeeqChain to determine for themselves whether the network of validating nodes is behaving honestly. This allows GeeqChain to provide 99% Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) while delivering rapid […]

The Geeq Project Technical Paper

We propose a new blockchain validation protocol called Proof of Honesty. We show that when Proof of Honesty is combined with a non-cooperative game called the Catastrophic Dissent Mechanism, the resulting consensus protocol implements truthful blockchain validation in coalition-proof equilibrium. Thus, Blockchains using Proof of Honesty offer users Strategically Provable Security and 100% Byzantine Fault Tolerance.

The Geeq Project Tokenomics

Geeq is an infrastructure level blockchain project offering very high levels of security through a new consensus protocol based on Game Theory and Economic Mechanism Design. The low transactions costs, scalability, and especially, the flexibility of Geeq’s architectural approach to Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) make it uniquely suited for widespread deployment in a variety of […]

Encryption, Hashing, PPK, and Blockchain: A Simple Introduction

Blockchain, SSL certificates, HTTPS, cryptocurrencies, public/private key pairs, VPNs, and many other important technologies are all applications of two basic ideas from cryptography: encryption and hash functions. Although they are mathematically related, they are intended to do very different things. Encryption: An encrypted file might be publicly available, but without a keyof some sort, the […]
