Our mission is to establish a digital currency for everyday use in internet commerce. We intend to ensure that the currency has tangible value and that people everywhere will find it desirable for transactions. We believe that, ultimately, our efforts will result in a cheaper, faster, more flexible method of transferring funds, bringing benefit to people the world over. Moreover, we believe that the mining portion of blockchain technology is a wasteful process which can be replaced by eliminating that procedure in favor of the Byzantine Consensus Algorithm model, which was refined by the Stellar network and adopted by Monetran.
