BLOCKCHAINS HAVE LIMITATIONS

What is Constellation Solving?

Constellation addresses the limitations inherent in current blockchain technology. Know our advantage.

features
Scalability

The network’s capacity is directly proportional to user adoption, becoming more secure as it grows. On Constellation, the more connections you make, the more bandwidth the individual and network receives.

features
Truly Decentralized

Reputation based consensus stops centralization and manipulation. Constellation bases rewards on individual or group integrity, not power.

features
Developer Ease

We don’t require a bespoke or complex programming language. Constellation uses existing programming and distributed computing standards. You can integrate existing apps or develop in JVM.

features
Cross Network Communication

Constellation enables interoperability across existing and new networks. They can communicate without security concerns due to our consensus and reputation model.

Introducing Orion, Our Community Portal

Orion is an incentivized community portal where users can develop distributed applications. The forum serves as an information source within our community. Constellation content is posted on Orion and then federated across various distribution channels. Upcoming releases of Orion will include developer documentation, bounties and an app market.

Faqs

Frequently Asked Questions

Our active and vibrant community have highlighted a number of questions specific to our roadmap, vision and platform. Here are some of the questions that regularly come up. Ask us anything on Telegram!

What is DAG?

In more traditional blockchains, the host provides the food/drinks (i.e resources) for this party. And when the guests arrive, the amount of resources can only accommodate so many people, the portions are small and then everything eventually runs out and the party ends. Think Constellation DAG like a potluck (a party where everyone brings food/drinks). With every added guest (node to the network), the more resources the party has to keep going. This is the nature of Constellation, a distributed system that scales horizontally.

What is a Microservice?

“Microservices” is an approach to application development in which a large application is built as a suite of modular services. Each module supports a specific business goal and uses a simple, well-defined interface to communicate with other sets of services. Uber, for example, is not a singular app purse. It is a unified app which means it is a single interface that brings together their driver app, their rider app, and their corporate team app.

Is Constellation a Blockchain?

Not exactly. Although inspired by the principles of decentralization, many standard blockchains such as Bitcoin and Ethereum face scalability issues. This is why the next generation of decentralized networks such as Hashgraph, IOTA, and Constellation have turned to DAG.

What is a smart contract?

A smart contract, also known as a cryptocontract, is a computer program that directly controls the transfer of digital currencies, assets, or data between parties under certain conditions. These contracts are stored on blockchain technology, a decentralized ledger that also underpins bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies.

When is the Airdrop?

Due to overwhelming demand the Constellations AirDrop registration is now closed. Tokens will be distributed as per the AirDrop schedule. Sign up to the Orion portal and follow us across our various channels for future updates on token bounties.

I haven't received my email confirmation?

Some email service providers have issues with delivery from our email service provider. Please check spam and reach out to [email protected] to ask questions. Please allow up to 7-days for a response as our support team is very busy.

Will Token Economics be released prior to the TGE event?

Yes, investors have received our token breakout, we’re finalizing the details before making it public.

If I register how many AirDrops will I be eligible for?

Each registrant will only be eligible for 1 AirDrop over the six months. This is to allow for an even and fair distribution of tokens amongst the community.

How do I earn more tokens after the AirDrop?

The community and developer portal will be gamified with token bounties available for different projects e.g Translations, Documentation Contribution, Debugging, Developing ACI's and Microservices etc.

What's the difference between the community and developer tiers?

Both grant membership to the community portal. The developer tier opens up additional access to the team and priority access to developer tools. Developers will be able to build microservices and ACI's that can be offered for use through the Constellation DApp Market.

Was the AirDrop open to US Citizens ?

Unfortunately, the AirDrop is not open to US Citizens at this time. We are currently working to make this available, and expect to be able to do this sometime in the next three months. Please sit tight and we will get a solution soon.

How many tokens are available in the AirDrop?

Community members are eligible for 250 tokens and Developers are eligible for 1000 tokens. Each amount is locked as a membership for 6-months.

Will the AirDrop be ERC20 or Main Token?

The AirDrop will be an ERC20 token which will then be swapped at the mainnet launch.

Are my tokens locked?

Yes, your tokens are locked for 6-months and are used as a membership to access our community and developer portal Orion.

I did not receive my email confirmation? What the heck is going on? Do I get tokens?

Some email service providers have issues with delivery from our email service provider. Please check spam and reach out to [email protected] to ask questions. Please allow up to 7-days for a response as our support team is very busy.

Am I guaranteed a place in the AirDrop?

No. Not everyone will get access to the AirDrop and it is limited each month to 5,000,000 tokens which are split between the community (250 tokens) and developers (1000) tokens. If you miss the first AirDrop you will get a chance in the next month.

How will I know if I have been selected for the AirDrop?

You will get an email on the 1st of July 2018 notifying you of your place in the first AirDrop and giving you a unique link for our KYC/AML process.

More questions?

How does a microservice relate to a smart contract?

Microservices, as we have embraced them, are developed as off chain applications that execute smart contract logic. They are concurrent processes unlike smart contracts which must be in every node in the network.

How many transactions can the hylochain push through?

Constellations’s Hylochain has 4,000-4,800 transactions per second for every 1,200 nodes. So that means for 1 million people this will be close to 4.5 million transactions per second.

How does constellation prevent a double spend attack?

Our DAG architecture prevents against this. Every node notarizes its transactions in a personal chain and that transaction is signed by the second party. Thus transaction order is always preserved and if transaction order is preserved, double spends are impossible.

How do nodes in different galaxies transact with each other?

All nodes, galaxies included, are instances of the same application. They all keep track of their local cluster but also run a peer finding sub process which allows new nodes to find a cluster.

Why did you choose the name "Proof of MEME"?

Since 1976, a meme has been a unit representing an imitable idea or behavior that can be spread. In our case, it represents benevolent behavior across Constellation that is rewarded and should be imitated to improve a nodes overall reputation within the system. Proof of Meme is meritocracy compared to Proof of Stake which is a plutocracy.

How does one establish a reputation with proof of MEME when they begin?

They open the constellation app and click a button that says “join the network”. This makes their rep score grow. This will use the phone’s excess bandwidth to help Constellation work. When they want to leave they must confirm they wish to exit their star cluster, otherwise they will continue to gain crypto in exchange for resources.

What about Rakugo?

The team formed in 2017 to build Rakugo, a decentralized content platform launched on Ethereum. After realizing the inherent limitations of the Ethereum platform, they pivoted to create Constellation a DAG protocol that would be able to support projects like Rakugo. All investors were fully refunded or transitioned to Constellation. If you have any questions about Rakugo please reach out to us on telegram.
