OPEN Platform (OPEN) Blockchain Payments Infrastructure for Applications
Open Platform is a payment infrastructure required for applications to communicate on-chain payments with their application backend.
It will enable any application to integrate blockchain technology, deploy any payment scheme, accept any cryptocurrency and track payment states on the blockchain.
All of this should make it easier easier for mainstream developers to adopt cryptocurrency technology into their applications
The token has several usages:
It activates Scafforlds to allow application developers to accept payments. For Scaffold to be used, the developer must stake a certain amount of OPEN tokens with it.
There’s also a Developer Growth Pool which is used to incentivize developers to implement OPEN Platform and join the community. 3% of every transaction is used as a type of network gas fee. This fee is is sent automatically to the Developer Growth Pool and used to increase usage.
There are some projects that aim for wider cryptocurrency-as-a-payment adoption and include: Metal, Monetha, OmiseGo but the biggest competition will be Bitpay but Open has way more use cases and applications while also trying to be easier to use.
