Cache is a cryptocurrency and series of projects aimed at empowering developers, startups, and products to easily adopt powerful blockchain features such as assets, tokens, decentralization, identity management, and more.

Our goal is to make blockchain accessible and usable to existing developers, platforms and end users throughout the world. In short, we believe that in order to have a more decentralized world that we need to make development, tools, and user experience surrounding blockchain an easy choice.

About[edit]

The Cache token sale is designed completely around empowering developers and businesses to utilize blockchain. While other tokens are great at generating hype, Cache will be focused with onboarding developers, businesses, websites, and companies.

The Cache token sale consists of 4 major components:

  1. Creation of the Blockstart platform: Blockstart is the core platform that makes blockchain development easy
  2. Creation of the Cacheout ecosystem: Cacheout is an incentivized ecosystem of learning within a decentralized environment
  3. Scaling of Devslopes education platform: Devslopes is the education platform that will train the next generation of blockchain developers
  4. Selling and distribution of the Cache token: Cache is the token that powers these platforms.

We believe that if we can make the technology easier to understand and use, and then train developers on how to use that technology, we can quickly onboard developers and companies throughout the world to start using blockchain.

Cache has been in testing and prototyping phases for months. Cache is in production today. You can currently purchase learning courses from Developers.com*

using the Cache token.

You can also use the Cache currency in your own apps and website using the cache-typescript-sdk. The SDK currently supports React Native, Ionic, Web, Electron, or Node APIs.

You may send and receive Cache using the official Cache wallet.

Cache operates and lives within the NEM blockchain platform. NEM operates secure, RESTful APIs that allow developers to build unique, user friendly solutions on top of the platform. To send Cache or make Cache transactions a user will pay a nominal transaction fee in the XEM cryptocurrency. Unlike Ethereum, fees in the NEM blockchain are non-variable, reliable and low cost. The cache-typescript-sdk is an open source library forked from the NEM ecosystem and enhanced by our team.

SDK Use Cases[edit]

Here are some of the things you can do with Cache and the cache-typescript-sdk TODAY:

  • Accept Cache as payment in an iOS or Android app
  • Accept Cache as payment on your website
  • Send and receive Cache in mobile, web, or desktop apps
  • Use Cache as a form of in-game currency in mobile or desktop games
  • Create an app that lists all of the Cache high-rollers
  • And thousands of other ideas and use cases

Again, Cache and the cache-typescript-sdk are a currency and product that are both working in production today. The moment you purchase Cache you can start using it.

Upcoming Cache Features[edit]

The following Cache features all use the NEM public blockchain (NIS1) and its associated tooling and our custom upgrades, and each is open source. These are listed in order of development priority.

  • iOS & Android Wallet Apps
  * We are working on open source wallet apps for iOS & Android.
  * Innovative secret key recovery
  * Transaction histories
  * Address book with aliases
  * Unparalleled crypto wallet UX
  • Desktop Wallet App Enhancements
  * Innovative secret key recovery
  * Analytics dashboard
  • Devslopes Cache Wallet Integration
  * Devslopes will lead the way in bringing the wallet to its existing users through the Devslopes desktop app
  • Cache Payment SDK
  * This Payment SDK is dedicated to allowing websites and apps the ability to accept Cache with a few lines of code. This goes beyond the cache-typescript-sdk. With the Payment SDK a developer or company can insert a simple <script> snippet and have a fully immersive Cache payment gateway on their websites - all completely decentralized.

The Platforms[edit]

We are creating 3 major platforms that will rapidly accelerate worldwide adoption of blockchain development. These platforms will cater to three major segments: Implementation​: Blockstart Collaboration​: Cacheout Education​: Devslopes – Learn to Code Platform

Platform 1: Blockstart[edit]

THE PROBLEM[edit]

Businesses and products need to be more responsible. Most companies want to be more responsible. All users and companies cringe when large corporations are hacked. We witnessed the interviews with Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook as we learned that our personal data had been used to manipulate government elections worldwide. Users and responsible companies desire a better future in technology.

The problem is obtaining a more decentralized future is not so easy. Blockchain technology is incredibly complex and finding blockchain developers to hire can be equally complex.

If you choose to incorporate blockchain technologies, you must then decide which platform and tooling you will use, and then you must spend significant time and money hiring and training developers and building your solutions on top of it. The barrier to entry is incredibly high.

THE SOLUTION[edit]

Blockstart is a blockchain platform and suite of tools focused on empowering developers, startups, products, and enterprise to implement blockchain technology into their existing platforms and tools.

Blockstart is the driving purpose of the Cache token sale. We believe blockchain and cryptocurrency will never reach mass adoption until developers and companies bring it to their users.

We cannot expect the world to go out of their way to have more privacy, or more transparency. We can’t rely on people to make the better choice, because the easy choice will always win.

Blockstart is the platform to help developers and companies present blockchain as the easy choice.

Phase 1: Business[edit]

The first phase of Blockstart is focused around onboarding existing businesses and products. Businesses need to focus on the bottom line, which is generating revenue. Placing significant time and money into decentralization, transparency, trustlessness, and tokenization will never be a priority for most businesses.

This is where Blockstart fits in.

Blockstart will onboard existing businesses into its platform. We are creating a dashboard that will allow businesses to launch their own blockchain networks within minutes. But what about governance, autonomy and decentralization??! Hosting blockchain nodes in the cloud for businesses is not decentralized!! That’s right. It’s not completely decentralized, this is by design. The world isn’t ready to adopt full-blown autonomy and decentralization - and frankly, it doesn’t truly exist yet on any platform. We are practical in our approach. Onboard businesses, move them in the right direction, and help them decentralize and incorporate other blockchain features over time.

Phase 1: Features[edit]

Here is the list of features that will be built in Phase 1 of Blockstart development:

  • Decentralized desktop application for business network management
  • Business account creation
 * Wallets, Keys, Account Recovery
 * 100% decentralized
  • Private blockchain network creation
  • Cryptocurrency creation
 * Businesses can create currencies for their products
  • Asset creation
 * Business can create assets for digital items or tangible goods
  • iOS SDK
 * Written in Swift, businesses can interact with their networks in their iOS apps via the iOS SDK
  • Android SDK
 * Written in Java, and usable with Java or Kotlin, businesses can interact with their networks in their Android apps via the Android SDK
  • Unity SDK
 * Written in C#, combined with drag and drop prefabs, game developers can interact with their networks in their Unity games for mobile, web, or desktop
  • Exchange SDK
 * An SDK that makes it super simple for exchanges to start accepting cryptocurrencies created by businesses
  • Super Nodes
 * Businesses can launch a series of high performance Super Nodes. Super Nodes host the REST API and each node can support up to 4000 transactions per second
  • Standard Nodes
 * Businesses can launch Standard Nodes which represent user or network nodes. Standard nodes are mostly used to quickly get networks up and running. Over time the network will become more decentralized as the customers of the business install nodes
 * Standard Nodes come with a cross platform executable that can be downloaded by users of the business to help expand the network
  • Blockstart Mobile App
 * Business can create currencies and assets for their networks, and see the associated data needed to monitor their apps and business
  • B2B Sales
 * Blockstart will be aggressively selling these services to existing businesses. This is important to owners of Cache because businesses can pay for these services in Cache, which increases the value of Cache.

Phase 2: Developers, Apps, and Startups[edit]

Phase 2 is all about the public blockchain and developer onboarding. Developers and low-budget startups have a lot of the same issues that larger businesses might have in that choosing the right blockchain is very difficult, and then learning how to develop blockchain applications is quite complex.

Developers and startups also need low-cost on demand blockchain services so they can figure out their monetization models as they grow their apps and companies. The Blockstart public blockchain is the perfect solution for these developers and startups. Developers will create domains to manage their projects. Domains are similar to web domains in that they are unique to the entire blockchain network. Developers can then create assets and cryptocurrencies within that domain. Developers pay fees to launch new domains, assets, and currencies. All fees are paid in Cache.

As developers onboard users into their apps, those users will make transactions with the developer’s assets and cryptocurrencies. All end-user transactions also have associated fees in Cache. Developers can elect to pay for their user’s fees for a seamless experience, or they can have the users pay Cache in association with the developer’s assets/currencies. Developers can also elect to use Cache as their primary cryptocurrency within their applications and for their users.

Phase 2 is also where governance and mining is introduced. For the public blockchain to be fully decentralized, users will need to be incentivized to spread the network by operating Mining Nodes. Mining Nodes will use NEM’s proven Proof of Importance algorithm.


To summarize, Proof of Importance means that the more a user (Mining Node) interacts with the network, the more important they become, and they now have a higher chance of mining fees generated from transactions. Some network interactions that determine importance include sending Cache, receiving Cache, and creating domains, assets, and cryptocurrencies.

The more that a user uses Blockstart the more money they will earn. Proof of Importance is specifically designed to prevent elite takeovers of nodes as well as to prevent the need for expensive mining hardware. Mining Nodes can be run on almost any computer.

Every time a new block of transactions is written, a Mining Node will be chosen at random to write the block to the blockchain. The user account attached to that Mining Node will receive all of the transaction fees that are contained inside of that block. All transaction fees made by developers and end-users only ever go to the Mining Nodes.

Fees paid by developers to launch domains, cryptocurrencies, and assets go to Blockstart company (Devslopes CA LLC). This is how Blockstart generates revenue and improves the platform.

Note: There are changes we intend to make to the Proof of Importance algorithm to ensure a better user experience.

Phase 2: Business Feature Enhancements[edit]

If you are a business using the private network tools, you can launch your own Miner Program where your users can mine your cryptocurrencies. Businesses can adjust the gratuity levels of rewards for its users. We believe companies should have some level of influence in the governance and decentralization of their own products.

Businesses can elect to not use the Mining Program and incentivize the expanse of their networks in any way they see fit. There are no Cache fees for private networks. Blockstart (Devslopes CA LLC) generates revenue by businesses launching Super Nodes and Standard Nodes.

Phase 2: Developer & Business Feature Enhancements[edit]

Phase 2 also brings Blockstart’s robust analytics platform. Developers and businesses can see an assortment of important information including (but not limited to):

  1. Total transactions made per asset/currency
  2. Top spenders
  3. Total fees collected
  4. Active accounts
  5. Daily Active Accounts
  6. Monthly Active Accounts
  7. Average transactions per hour/day/month
  8. Usage comparisons between different assets/currencies
  9. Much more in the future

The goal of the analytics dashboard is to help businesses and developers understand how users are interacting with their apps, assets, and currencies. This analytics dashboard is free to all developers and businesses.

Phase 2: Features[edit]

  • Blockstart public blockchain
  • Blockstart public TEST blockchain
  • Mining Nodes & governance
  • Business Private Network Mining Nodes
  • Analytics dashboard
  • Identity SDK
 * Developers can use Blockstart’s Anonymous Identity SDK to help decentralize sensitive data that historically has been held in central databases

 * This SDK also includes an optional User Interface that lets your users go through KYC and AML
  • Crypto Mail
 * Crypto Mail is a new form of communication that uses unique addresses hashes to send messages between parties. Crypto Mail allows users to provide whatever identity they feel comfortable providing and users can easily close down an address and create new mail accounts. This easy-to-use SDK allows developers the ability to incorporate Crypto Mail into their applications.
  • Mobile App End-User Enhancements
 * Every developer receives a unique URL for their Blockstart domain. Developers simply place that URL on their website or give it to users, and it will deep link into the Blockstart app, but using your branding. End-users get the powerful Blockstart wallet features, but using your currencies, assets, and logos and branding.

Blockstart Tech[edit]

Blockstart is proudly utilizing a customized forked version of the NEM Catapult blockchain.

  • NEM
  • Blockstart

Catapult Key Features:

  • Catapult is NEM’s v2 blockchain engine built on C++
  • Catapult includes all of the core features from the NEM v1 blockchain, but with much higher performance.
  • Clocked 4000 transactions per second
  • Powerful REST API
  • Open source

As of May, 2018 Catapult does not include:

  • Governance
  • Fees
  • Mining

These are features under active development by NEM Foundation. Team members of Blockstart will also be contributing to the Catapult technology stack.

Blockstart is not just another blockchain platform. Blockstart will use proven technology that is backed by a unified community to develop user-facing features to make blockchain more accessible.

As often as Blockstart innovates, it will give back to the open source NEM projects. Blockstart succeeds as NEM succeeds.

Platform 2: Cacheout[edit]

About[edit]

Cacheout is an ecosystem, website, and platform designed to generate quality questions and answers for programming and tech questions. Cacheout will help further distribute Cache tokens throughout the world. Cacheout also is the medium that will onboard developers not familiar with blockchain or cryptocurrency into this exciting new world of decentralized applications.

Many platforms such as Stack Overflow and Reddit have rigid requirements for posting questions and learners are often left without answers, and more often than not, also become discouraged.

What if there could be a place where learners could pay bounties to have questions answered, and where experts could earn money for helping people out?

Welcome to Cacheout. Cacheout uses a currency-backed economy to regulate effective Q&A. Experts are incentivized to help out, even if the question being asked has been posted 100 times already. Learners respect the fact that people are giving their precious time to help and are therefore willing to pay for it. Cacheout is open source, decentralized, and already in development. Cacheout uses the Cache cryptocurrency as it’s payment method.

Cacheout Tech[edit]

The Cache token used in Cacheout operates through the NEM public blockchain. We are utilizing NEM’s powerful APIs to make transactions in Cache for bounties.

Cacheout will use ​Angular​ for the front-end user experience. This will be packaged up in a desktop application through ​Electron​.

When a user installs the Cacheout desktop app, it will install a node behind-the-scenes using the ​Tendermintblockchain. We will utilize the P2P networking features of Tendermint to communicate with other nodes.

Questions and answers data will be decentralized, but does not need to be immutable. We will utilize ​Apache Kafka​ streaming and ​RethinkDB​ to process data syncing across all nodes on the network.

Using Kafka and RethinkDB means that transactions/performance will be lightning fast.

Users will get the speed and utility of a standard multi-tier architecture application, but all 100% decentralized.

It is important that companies start using decentralized systems even for non-permanent data. This helps keep product uptimes higher and keeps employees of centralized companies from performing malicious acts.

The landing page will simply provide some static info and the download links of the desktop apps. Future versions of Cacheout will support iOS and Android devices.

Platform 3: Devslopes – Learn to Code Platform[edit]

Team Devslopes plays an important role in the Cache Token Sale, though more behind-the-scenes.

Devslopes has taught over 300,000 students worldwide how to code. We will continue to create new training content for all technologies and bring in many more thousands of students.

Devslopes will become an open source platform as part of this Cache Token Sale and the Devslopes product will work to become completely decentralized over time. Devslopes is important for the success of Cache, Cacheout, and Blockstart because we are the lead generation tool for all of these platforms. Devslopes finds learners, trains them, and then injects them into the developer and blockchain ecosystem.

Revenue from this Cache Token Sale will be used to hire employees at Devslopes and Blockstart. Both companies will lead development of the open source projects such as NEM, the Cache SDKs, Cacheout, and NEM Catapult.
