Will you allow the participation of external developers and others that can help the protocol?

Jun 23, 2018 10:43:56 AM / by Team HiP posted in Product, Technical

  • Yes. External developers will be able to participate in writing investment strategies and financeproducts, and in doing so will help shape the API's of the underlying contract infrastructure.
  • Developers will also be able to contribute services (such as data feeds for investment strategies, or gateways to other exchanges).

 

  • All contributions are rewarded through HiPTokens shared from the transaction fees charged.

What is the consensus algorithim used by the project and how was it picked?

Jun 23, 2018 10:43:55 AM / by Team HiP posted in Product, Technical

For the public blockchain, we write hashes of records directly to Ethereum, which uses Proof-of-work. Our permissioned, private blockchain validates at the transaction level, so doesn't user POW / POS algorithims.

We're still evaluating blockchains to use for our federated chain - and consensus is a consideration in in this. The chains we're evaluating all use a variant of BFT consensus.

When my property is on the HiP Platform, can everyone see how big my loan is?

No. Anonymized records do no include specific address details, but rather describe properties in generic terms, such as "3 Bedroom house in Bristol".

How is my data protected on the public blockchain?

Jun 23, 2018 10:43:52 AM / by Team HiP posted in Product, Technical

We write anonymized records of transactions onto a public ledger.

We also write the full transaction record-encrypted with the public key of each participant. This allows them to read maintain a full ledger of transactions that they have participated in, whilst maintaining privacy.

Tell me more about how smart contracts are used for investment strategies on HiP

Jun 23, 2018 10:43:50 AM / by Team HiP posted in Product, Technical

Investment strategies (which define algorithims for which properties to buy & sell, and how to manage open positions)are expressed as code. We will allow other participants to create investment strategies, and make them available for use.

The investment strategy contracts define how to respond to new investment opportuntities (such as a new property being made available), monitor market conditions (such as regional price indicies), and can issue buy and sell orders onto the exchange.

Tell me more about how smart contracts are used for defining funding products on the HiP Platform

Jun 23, 2018 10:43:49 AM / by Team HiP posted in Product, Technical

Funding products (which define how property is bought and sold - similar to the terms of a mortgage today) are expressed as code. We will allow other participants to create products and make them available for use.

The contracts define any policies to be attached to a wallet (such as guarantees around LTV thresholds), guarantees of future payments (such as rent), and how to respond various lifecycle events (such as emitting transfers of funds on servicing events to pay interest)
