Who are we?

SPA is a consortium of leading companies that are building next-generation distributed ledger technologies (DLT) dedicated to providing consumer and enterprise grade adoption. As distributed ledger technology comes to the forefront of innovation, SPA ushers in a new wave of business intelligence and solutions. SPA will include protocols, industry specialists, and applications with a strong focus on validating and accelerating the vision of DLT.

Our Mission

SPA will serve as a bridge towards real-world adoption by conveying a message of stability, scalability, and accountability, while also leveraging DLT to solve real-world enterprise problems. SPA provides technical solutions to the scalability issues currently prevalent among existing blockchain technology, while also supporting use cases that are driven by business, consumer and social needs. By educating both consumers and enterprises alike on emerging distributed ledger technology, SPA aims to become a global thought leader in the space, while also addressing the skepticism that many have towards the blockchain and cryptocurrency industries at large.

The Team

Constellation, ORBS, and COTI are among the initial co-founders of SPA – each of which are blockchain protocols that are focused on building enterprise and scalable solutions.

Constellation is a consumer and enterprise-grade distributed ledger technology that enables the world’s smart devices and machines to seamlessly interact and transact. The network aggregates the resources and bandwidth of internet connected devices, securing transactions and ensuring high throughput through a dynamically partitioned DAG (directed acyclic graph) architecture. Each interaction or transaction is verified through a unique consensus model. Transactions flow through the network allowing it to remain stable without every node having to individually verify before the next rounds of consensus is performed. This method incorporates a node’s historical participation into delegate selection, observation from local nodes, and rewards benevolent behavior. The Constellation network is underpinned by an incentivized community portal called ORION.

COTI is the world’s first blockchain protocol optimized for decentralized payments, designed for use by enterprises, merchants, governments, decentralized payment networks, and stable coin issuers.

Most of today’s blockchain platforms are optimized for dApps and not for payments. They also don’t provide the infrastructure and the tools required for everyday transactional use. This in addition to possessing numerous challenges related to identity, trust, stability, scalability and high transaction costs, which deter the adoption of cryptocurrencies for mainstream use.

COTI utilizes a DAG (directed acyclic graph) ledger to address these shortcomings, providing extreme scalability to process tens of thousands of transactions per second, as well as price stability mechanisms and low costs. The beta version of the platform was already released.

Orbs is a public blockchain acting as the production layer to complement Ethereum. Adopting Orbs alongside Ethereum allows dApps to enjoy the best of both chains: unmatched security, liquidity and ecosystem integration, together with low-fees, production-ready scalability and a suitable fee structure. This combination of Ethereum + Orbs is the optimal solution for applications with millions of users looking to adopt blockchain, today.
