Inspiration

Inspiration for MoneyStream is provided by the bitcoin white paper, the concept of honest money, and the Web Monetization W3C proposal. BitcoinSV is the only network that can natively scale to effectively handle streamable cash for the whole planet. MoneyStream captures a global record of browser events and records them on a single ledger to make global instant streamable cash.

How I built MoneyStream

MoneyStream builds on the reference implementation of the proposed W3C Web Monetization standard. That gave us an important head start and allowed us to focus on converting the implementation to BitcoinSV.

Challenges I ran into

There is much to do including enhancements to the bitcoinsv node software.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

  • Built a cash based application protocol for commerce on the internet, an honest use of streamable cash.
  • Pay-as-you-go model. Cash-for-content. Only pay for what you use. No escrow. No encumbrances.
  • MoneyStream will have revenue from its first day in operation

What I learned

  • Bitcoin is more than a ledger - it is also a protocol for measuring and recording real-time value exchanges.
  • The title of the satoshi bitcoin whitepaper is 'p2p electronic cash'
