Proton - A blockchain-based identity method for signing and settling financial transactions.
Proton (XPR) is a new public blockchain and smart contract platformdesigned for both consumer applications and peer-peer payments. It is builtaround a secure identity and financial settlements layer that allows users todirectly link real identity and fiat accounts, pull funds and buy crypto, anduse that crypto seamlessly in apps.At the core of Proton is the notion of a verified account, where a user BobSmith can verify his identity, and securely assert that @bob is in fact hisreal account. Moreover, Bob can link fiat accounts to this account, andpush and pull fiat funds from daemon commands via the node. This meansthat after KYC, @bob can move funds between a special purpose bankaccount or a credit card and crypto with one fast transaction. It also meanshe can find and send either fiat or crypto to his friend Alice Black (@alice)knowing that she is the real Alice Black.
