Alvalor is building a disruptive blockchain platform that will remove the limitations found in the first and second generation of the technology. Through advanced second and third consensus layers, we remove the resource constraints and the slow execution found on other platforms. This will open up a new world of revolutionary decentralized blockchain applications. The focus is to build a globally scalable platform with a small code footprint.
WHAT IS "BLOCKCHAIN"?
Blockchain technology is a way for participants on a peer-to-peer network to agree on the state of a shared system. This allows you to have digital money transfers without a third party being involved, but it can be applied to a multitude of other trust applications (notaries, stock exchanges, banks, courts). Blockchain technology is set to disrupt many sectors of the modern economy and is expected to be the next big thing after the Internet. It will probably fundamentally impact the way we live in the future.
Our technology takes the ideas of more advanced blockchain platforms and distills them down to their core concepts. Stripping everything away that is not necessary, we were able to reduce the basic blockchain layer to its bare essentials. We then took a step back to look at some advanced second layer concepts, to understand them at their deepest level and to improve on them without adding complexity. Instead, we improved the whole technical design & implementation by removing everything was was superfluous. With an extremely minimalist first layer, we mitigate the additional complexity of additional layers and improve performance and resource usage by several orders of magnitude. This allows us to build a platform that is more efficient, more scalable and, yet, still more minimalist.
Our platform will be open source and will be spearheaded by a foundation with strong financing to push the research & development forward for at least 4 years. We will raise these funds through a crowdfunding effort in the blockchain community. This means that the blockchain community is our main initial focus: technical cryptography & networking experts, simple young Internet people and dreamers who want to change the world.
These are a couple of concepts that can be used (but don't have to!) as an inspiration / influence for the logo design:
- network / peer-to-peer
- blockchain / chain of blocks
- decentralized / distributed
- second layer / multi-layer
- simplicity / minimalism
- efficiency / effective
- condensation / distillation
- scalable / global
If you manage to create a logo that visually looks as clean and minimalist as the ones currently rated at 3 stars, but at the same time expresses a deep and meaningful idea about the philosophy behind our software architecture & platform design, you probably have a winner.
