Hyperion aims to establish a global decentralized map economy for 10B people.
Hyperion organically integrates innovations of three important dimensions, coined as the Hyperion Trinity of map technology, economy and society structures, to eventually achieve a sustainable and self-governed map economy of the world. People are empowered to build map technology, share economical return and govern map communities
High level dynamics of the Hyperion Trinity is illustrated:
Crowd-build to incentive quality global map data contribution and distributed system infrastructure hosting with Hyperion Digital Location Right (HDLR) as reward, i.e., HDLR mining;
Crowd-share to establish a sustainable decentralized map economy, in which map services fees are distributed to HDLR owners accordingly by smart contract, i.e., HDLR incentive;
Crowd-govern to reach consensus on technology and social-economic transition with delegated governance, i.e., HDLR voting. The Hyperion global community is consisted of multi-level regional communities governed by HDLR holders delegates of respective regions.
Location-based services (LBS), such as location-based social network, advertisement and gaming, accrue value to HDLR. Hyperion will collaborate with a wide spectrum of LBS to enrich the Hyperion ecosystem. To demonstrate the full power of Hyperion services, Hyperion will develop example LBS, e.g., a consuming-facing map service named Titan and a location-based game.
this layer includes full-stack map services with tight integration with MapChain. Specifically, it includes map production service (dMapper), map service (dMap) and location data intelligence platform (Hyperion Marketplace). Users can stake HYN (pay-by-inflation) to access dMapper and dMap services, and spend HYN (pay-by-fee) for Hyperion Marketplace services;
the Hyperion Protocol Network is a global network of Hyperion Protocol Nodes with installation of MapChain (Hyperion Blockchain), smart contract, and trusted distributed storage. MapChain employs pBFT + SCP as block producing consensus algorithm to support scalable map services and enforce a consistent delegated governance structure of the Hyperion community;
