The Trustlines Network ecosystem aims to promote financial & economic inclusion of all people through decentralized and open source systems. The Trustlines Protocol is being built to support a range of use cases by leveraging existing networks of mutual trust and mapping trust-based relationships onto trustless infrastructure.
The Trustlines Protocol aims to provide the service of “transfer of value” without actually transferring value. This can be accomplished by leveraging networks of mutual-trust.
The Trustlines Protocol consists of a set of rules, processes and definitions forged into deployable code. The overall system is based on several interoperating components:
The Trustlines Network refers to the ecosystem of individuals, projects and entities aligned on the core idea of Trustlines.
When the Trustlines Protocol was originally conceived, the first use case considered was that of a decentralized immutable accounting system for netted IOU balances between trusted parties.
The Trustlines Protocol is however now being developed to support a wider range of use cases, i.e. all those which can leverage networks of formal and informal trust-based relationships and want to build on a decentralized system.
The Trustlines Foundation invites contributors to submit their analysis of potential use cases of the Trustlines Protocol.
