A business that acts in an unethical way suffers on many levels including financial (fines, loss of revenue), valuation decreases, branding (distrust) and public relations. Trust is cornerstone to a successful business and once a brand loses trust with their customers, it can take years to recover if ever. GoChain uses the Proof of Reputation (PoR) consensus model that depends on the reputation of the participants to keep the network secure. The networks nodes are operated by up to 50 reputable enterprises and organizations around the world. These nodes validate the blocks of transactions produced on the blockchain network. The benefits of Proof of Reputation are: It’s green — No need to consume large quantities of electricity in order to secure a blockchain (Bitcoin and Ethereum are estimated to burn over $12 million worth of electricity costs per day as part of their consensus mechanism).It’s secure.It can perform much faster due to removing the heavy calculations required for PoW and having a known number and size of nodes.It’s as decentralized as the companies are decentralized.
