Fern Protocol ICO (FERN)
Make any blockchain more secure
This listing is incomplete as a result of the ICO failing to respond to our numerous requests for more information.
“Fern makes any blockchain network more decentralised and secure by connecting identified node and oracle providers through an anonymous protocol. As many blockchain networks are controlled by a single or small group of entities, this renders them exposed to a Sybil attack – the nodes, or the people controlling them, can easily influence the entire network through colluding or bribing. Sybil attack undermines the integrity of the blockchain ledger and defrauds users, which contradicts the value of blockchain being trustless and secure. Fern addresses this issue by combining enterprise compliance requirements with trustless network fundamentals.”
Fern Protocol Use of Token
The aim of Fern is to enable a more secure and trustless environment for users of blockchain applications, regardless of the underlying blockchain platform. Specifically, Fern will enable an ecosystem of independent, compliant, yet anonymously engaged, node and oracle providers.
