What Is Agate ?

While currently there are several applications and individual blockchains individually are running to facilitate cryptocurrency payments but still there is no comprehensive protocol or platform to resolve the key problem in cryptoeconomy, AgateChain is a complete set of a decentralised blockchain, with two mobile apps, a fiat pegged ecosystem, an API Suite, plug-ins, add-ons and a physical POS terminal and operating with multi coin mechanism and works as a comprehensive crypto infrastructure for everyday banking and a gateway to connect millions of developers, users, and in-store and online merchants to the cryptoeconomy. It consists of several modules and objects, all fueled by AGT token that has over ten sustainable utilisation and revenue streams. The important point to note about Agate is that most of its modules are already built and working or have Beta versions and will complete shortly after ICO.

Agate Blockchain

With different blockchains designed for different purposes, we realised that we needed a specific blockchain to meet our criteria and be independent of other current, multipurpose slow, expensive blockchains. We have summarized below some of the Agate blockchain capabilities: high speed, very low transaction fees, scalability , smart contract, decentralised, mining, secure, token generator engine, block explorer.

Agate Blockchain

With different blockchains designed for different purposes, we realised that we needed a specific blockchain to meet our criteria and be independent of other current, multipurpose slow, expensive blockchains. We have summarized below some of the Agate blockchain capabilities: high speed, very low transaction fees, scalable , smart contract, decentralised, minable, secure, token generator engine, block explorer.

High Speed

Agate blockchain’s block size and block time are influenced by Ripple , Steem and Waves-NG blockchains and use similar principles to have the fastest transaction settlement speed while there is no need for multi confirmation as its run inside iFiat Ecosystem. (However, developers can design their app to ask for more than one confirmation.)

Very low transaction fees

Using our tailored blockchain, we can greatly reduce the cost of transactions, making them almost free (there is always a fixed transaction fee of 0.01 AGT; this cost exists to protect Agate blockchain from spam attacks). This will ultimately encourage users and merchants to use the whole ecosystem without worrying about transaction fees rather than relying on traditional blockchains with much higher costs, which are not suitable for micropayments.

Scalability

Agate blockchain consists of three microblocks, and one key block will allow thousands of users to have concurrent transactions without delay.

Smart contract

Our development team is working on releasing specific types of smart contracts for Agate blockchain that are aligned with future requirements. Our main focus is to make it easy so developers don’t need to learn a completely new programming language. We are anticipating that the smart contracts will be ready to release to the public by Q1 2019.

Decentralised

Agate blockchain will always remain decentralised. We welcome anyone who likes to host and run a node, after we switch to main net.

Mining

We used an environmentally friendly approach on Agate blockchain mining, unlike the Proof of Work (POW) mining method on Bitcoin and Ethereum, which consumes massive amounts of electricity and requires advanced hardware and knowledge to become a miner. With the Agate mining network, anyone can be a miner; the only requirement is to purchase 50,000 AGT coin, participate in Proof of Stake (PoS) mining and get rewarded for their participation. Miners also can run their own public mining pool and let other users with less AGT coin lease it to the mining pool and proportionally get rewarded as well. This means users with a minimum of 1 AGT can also be miners. During the lease period, users can’t spend their coin, but as there is no contract or cancellation penalty, they can release their coin from the mining pool anytime and spend it immediately.

Token Generator Engine

(We would suggest you study the Agate iFiat Ecosystem section before reading this part)

One of the fundamental modules in Agate is the token generator engine; in order to issue iFiat tokens (i.e., iUSD, iEUR etc.), we’ve used the Agate token generator engine, and we have created these tokens to facilitate transactions between iBuckets inside the Agate iFiat ecosystem. However, anyone, including individuals, businesses or developers, can create their own customised internal digital currency or tokens, which can be used for anything from running an ICO, buying a gift card, operating a loyalty program or issuing fiat pegged tokens and much more.

Everyone can either use the Agate token generator GUI or Agate API suite in order to generate reissuable or non-reissuable tokens. This has a one-off cost of 50 AGT coins. After the tokens are issued, transaction fees remain at a fixed amount of 0.01 AGT.

Block Explorer

Like other blockchains, Agate blockchain has a detailed block explorer, which is currently used to track all transactions within the iFiat ecosystem and is publicly available.

iFiat Ecosystem

One of the most interesting elements of Agate is the Agate iFiat Ecosystem. It uses decentralised blockchain technology (Agate blockchain) to resolve many of the fundamental issues in the cryptoeconomy, which will facilitate transactions very economically and in real-time.

iFiat Ecosystem

One of the most interesting elements of Agate is the Agate iFiat Ecosystem. It uses decentralised blockchain technology (Agate blockchain) to resolve many of the fundamental issues in the cryptoeconomy, which will facilitate transactions very economically and in real-time.

The blockchain also has its own objects; more details have been described in its section. Fiat-pegged cryptocurrency works like a fiat credit or stable coin and is called “iFiat.” All iFiat will initially be issued on Agate blockchain, so they exist as a cryptocurrency token. Each iFiat unit issued into circulation is backed on a one-to-one ratio (i.e., one iFiat iUSD is one US dollar) by the corresponding fiat currency unit.

Agate iFiat has the following advantages over other fiat-pegged cryptocurrencies.

iFiats exist on Agate blockchain rather than on less developed and tested blockchains, also, not within closed-source software running on centralised, private databases, or on very costly and slow blockchains like bitcoin, which is not viable or practical to use it as a medium to transfer funds or for micropayments.

  • Although, iFiats can be used just like other cryptocurrencies, i.e., in a p2p, pseudo anonymous, decentralised, cryptographically secure environment, but they are only circulated inside Agate blockchain to facilitate the payments and real-time settlement and secure the value of funds for both users and merchant as iFiat redemption will not face any pricing or liquidity constraints.
  • iFiats run on one of the fastest decentralised blockchain platforms, which include a decentralised exchange (DEX), Browser base, wallet encryption, open source, multiparty security and reporting functions and all transaction can be tracked on our blockchain explorer.
  • iFiat’s one-to-one backing implementation is easier for traditional merchants to understand and accept for their goods or services.
  • Although iFiats are fully redeemable via the options below, the best use case scenario is to spend it with other merchants or suppliers, because it’s real-time and has a very small transaction fee for users.
  • Instant loading onto virtual or physical debit cards
  • Request to transfer to bank account
  • Pay any type of bill, include loan repayment, utilities etc.
  • Generate crypto gift voucher, which is redeemable with all Agate merchants (in store or online)

Agate iFiat Ecosystem is capable of supporting many different iFiats; however, it currently runs on iUSD, which is pegged by USD, and each token always represents $1 USD. In later versions, we plan to add EUR, GPB, JPY and AUD.

Mobile App for User

Bitcoin was introduced to the world as the first cryptocurrency in January 2009 . Bitcoin’s blockchain settlement was very fast and cheap, but now it is almost impractical to use. Therefore more attractive cryptocurrencies have been created and will come in the future. As each cryptocurrency needs to be stored on their own blockchain it is increasingly more difficult for users to manage their crypto-assets. One of the other problems is how to spend these assets in the real world.

Recently few companies have tried to make a basic application to buy back users’ cryptocurrencies and deposit fiat currency into their Visa cards or Mastercard accounts, but they all have many problems:

1- From the time users request the conversion of their crypto assets to when they get the actual funds in their account takes a long time.
2- There are lot of fees involved as their token was not designed to fuel the system and in most cases their token is a Security Token to get potential profits from company revenue or card issuer cash back.
3- Most of them limit their users to depositing one or two cryptocurrencies (mainly Bitcoin and Ethereum).
4- When users deposit their coin into the app it is locked into that app. In most cases users must either convert the coin to fiat currency in the form of a Visa or Mastercard account or move the coin to another wallet.

In addition to these issues, many of these apps have features that have been promised but are not yet operational and many are operating differently from what they claimed initially in their white papers. In Agate we tried to resolve all these issues. For example, in Agate’s user app, users can deposit five crypto assets including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Ripple. Up to 17 cryptocurrencies are in the development phase and are expected to be released in Q4 2018. Users are able to instantly, and with the best global exchange rate, convert any of their crypto assets to any iFiats (i.e., iUSD, iEUR etc.) in the Agate iFiat Ecosystem (please refer to the Agate iFiat Ecosystem section), which is an internal token/stable-coin that is pegged by a fiat currency. This is one of the most important elements of Agate because it lets users and merchants send and receive money almost instantly and for free, or users can choose to deposit the cash in their bank accounts or load their cards and use it in over 30,000,000 stores worldwide . It’s very important for us that users receive their funds instantly; hence, in our agreement with our current card provider, we agreed to hold a fair amount of money in their trust account. This allows Agate to load users’ cards instantly and update the balance immediately after any financial transaction.

Mobile App for Merchant

Traditional POS terminals are expensive in rental and fees, and we believe the Agate merchant application and Agate POS terminal are the ultimate solution for all of these problems.

Mobile App for Merchant

Our extensive research on the cryptoeconomy challenges shows us that the main element of slow flow in this economy is not necessarily existing payment methods and tools; rather, it’s on the merchant side. Although there are several ways of exchanging crypto assets to fiat currency and then spending it in stores or online, there aren’t many practical, agile and cheap solutions on the merchant side. We also understand that although there are currently few solutions that let merchants accept cryptocurrencies, the biggest concerns of merchants are market fluctuations and high fees. As merchants mainly need to pay their expenses, including suppliers, employees, rent and other expenses in fiat currency, they don’t want to accept the risk; even if they get a few more customers who like to spend their crypto assets. One of the other concerns is that having multiple physical POS terminals is not viable for the business: first, it’s hard to manage, and second, it’s expensive to pay the rental fee, especially as they may not get enough customers to cover the fees, and there is still no dominant company to support these physical devices. Conversely, traditional POS terminals are expensive in rental and fees, and we believe the Agate merchant app and Agate POS terminal are the

ultimate solutions for all of these problems. This is because the merchant application works in our Agate iFiat Ecosystem, which is runs on Agate blockchain , which is one of the cheapest and fastest blockchains to date; and our fiat pegged tokens, which we call iFiats (i.e., iUSD, iEUR etc.), are floating in this ecosystem such that when users in the Agate user app exchange their crypto assets and transfer them to their iBucket (either by Agate Trading Bot, Agate AI engine or manually), they can instantly spend the funds in the Agate merchant app, and the merchant would receive the funds in less than three seconds, and it can handle up to 6,000 transactions in one minute. Once merchants receive the funds in their own iBucket, they can either order a card and load the fund onto the card or withdraw the money into their local bank accounts or simply spend it any of other Agate Merchant application, POS terminal or online merchants.

The other advantage of this method is that merchants won’t bear the crypto market fluctuation risks, as they would receive the exact fiat value in their wallets; also, they don’t need to acquire a complicated system to keep track of the market to translate the dollar value to crypto value of users, which means there is no need to have multiple labelling and pricing systems for their goods or services.

Physical POS Terminal

Currently the Agate POS terminal is available in two types, for mobile users and for physical stores, and both come with unique features.

Physical POS Terminal

Currently the Agate POS terminal is available in two types, for mobile users and for physical stores, and both come with unique features, include but not limited to the following.

I. Borderless

Unlike traditional POS terminal solutions, which are limited to a specific region, Agate POS terminals can be used everywhere in the world without infrastructure limitation! These terminals use the Internet to securely connect to our POS server hosted in the cloud on five continents, and users can use mobile Internet (i.e., 3G/4G) or any other type of common Internet connection (e.g., LAN, WiFi, ADSL) in order to connect their devices to our network.

II. 0% transaction fee

While currently merchants have to pay between 0.5% and 3% transaction fees to their banks, financial institute or POS providers, as Agate POS terminal sits on Agate iFiat Ecosystem, which run in Agate blockchain, merchants won’t pay anything when they receive the funds in their iBucket wallet. As iBucket is a decentralised wallet, they can spend it anywhere they like—for example, to pay their suppliers or buy items for themselves—or, alternatively, they can request to deposit it to their bank accounts or to load onto their debit cards.

III. Instant settlement (24 x 7 x 365)

In traditional POS terminal systems, banks or service providers usually limit their merchants to performing settlements only once or twice in a day . Even after 24 hours of this settlement, they may not access their funds for various reasons—for example, if the merchant’s business bank account is different than the POS provider or if they settle after the bank’s deadline (usually 10:00 p.m.) or over the weekend. Running transactions on Agate iFiat Ecosystem resolves these issues with real-time settlement because as soon as a customer pays, the funds become available and spendable in the merchant’s wallet.

IV. Secure connection

This is a decentralised ecosystem, anThis is a decentralised ecosystem, and because there is no middleman to handle transactions, all transactions are performed on the Agate iFiat Ecosystem blockchain with unique and traceable TX ID, which is trackable in Agate block explorer. For other connections (commands, user data, etc.) from a POS terminal to our cloud hosting, we used a secure method that included hashing all data with a public key and a nonce; then the hashed payload and nonce will be sent to the cloud, and a server will decrypt it by using a private key while the whole process runs on SSL context with valid CA certificate, which is a symmetric 256-bit encryption on a X.509 certificates.

V. No lock-in contract, no exit fee

In order to encourage merchants to use Agate POS terminals and, as a result, to grow the Agate POS network, there won’t be any lock-in contracts; all they need to pay to have this service is a one-off fee in AGT token, plus a small monthly fee in AGT token for maintaining this infrastructure. Also, merchants can return the terminal as soon as they like without penalty.

VII. NFC/RFID support

In-store terminals (desktop) can support NFC payments, so instead of showing QR codes, users can use NFC to pay (similar to Visa PayWave or Mastercard PayPass ).

VIII. Selling virtual goods

In order to offer incentives to merchants to use the Agate POS terminals, they can also sell virtual goods (e.g., phone charge, iTunes, Google Play, Skype credit and similar items) directly on the POS and get commissions for them. As all these transactions would happen on the iFiat Ecosystem using Agate API Suite, these items can be provided by any supplier who is willing to sell their services to Agate users. However, this option is planned for after the ICO. When the Agate merchant app is updated, this feature would immediately be available on all merchant POS without any extra hardware or cost.

IX. Never lose a dollar!

In traditional POS terminals, if for any reason a terminal is damaged physically, through faults in their applications or because of electronic shock, it’s quite possible that merchants may lose their whole day’s income if they don’t settle on time. In the Agate POS terminal, this is prevented because of its decentralised nature; as soon as users pay, the Agate POS terminal will sign into the iFiat Ecosystem and, as all the funds are logged in Agate blockchain, the merchant can access it from any other device and spend it or cash it out.

Payment Gateway API

Agate Gateway API, which is an open-source API and available in GitHub, will let anyone create his or her own payment gateway within the Agate iFiat Ecosystem and run on Agate blockchain.

Payment Gateway API

There are millions of online stores on the Internet , but for reasons similar to those mentioned in merchants facing problems section, just a small percentage of these ecommerce websites are willing to accept cryptocurrencies, and they generally accept Bitcoin or, in some cases, Ethereum; meanwhile, many others don’t want to accept any types of crypto, mainly because of:

1. Market fluctuation; they don’t want to take the risk.

Example: Today a customer is buying a drone for $5,000 and wants to pay in BTC. Bitcoin’s fiat value is $10,000; the customer will pay 0.5 BTC. Because of crypto market volatility, the next day the value of BTC drops by only 5% to $9,500, which means the merchant would have the equivalent of $4,750. Furthermore, the merchant has to pay his supplier in USD or another fiat currency; hence, he needs to either use one of the online services or exchanges to convert it to USD and obviously pay the exchange rate and in some cases withdraw fees, so by the end of the day, the merchant may actually only receive $4,500 which does not make sense financially. There might be a case where the value of a crypto asset appreciates, but considering all mentioned costs,there is still a risk on the merchant side.

2. Volatile price tag; tracking and maintaining the pricing of many different cryptocurrencies in different exchanges is hard and, in most cases, is impractical.

3. Hard integration; most cryptocurrency gateways are very hard to integrate with traditional online shops, which have been designed to work in the fiat economy.

Agate Gateway API, which is an open-source API and available in GitHub, will let anyone create his or her own payment gateway within the Agate iFiat Ecosystem and run on Agate blockchain;What this means is that now, technically, all the online websites will be able to accept cryptocurrency by simply using Agate Payment Gateway API.

We plan to develop the similar plugin and app for the top ten online shopping platforms and release it for free; this includes Squarespace Online Stores, Shopify, Magento, WixStores, MonsterCommerce, PrestaShop, Weebly eCommerce, OpenCart, SAP Hybris. Through developing these plugins for the top ten online shopping platforms, over 76% of the total number of online shops on the Internet would have the ability to immediately accept cryptocurrency should they install the plugin.

Plugins/App for E-commerce platforms

Since over 76% for total number of online stores on the internet are using only 10 ecommerece platform

Plugins/App for E-commerce platforms

Since over 76% for total number of online stores on the internet are using only 10 ecommerece platform (Woocommerece, Magento,Prestashop,Drupal, virtuemart,J2Store, Gravity, EasyDigitalDownload, E-Commerce for wordpress,…) for this reason We’ve developed 11 free app/plugin for popular ecommerce platform that online store owners can simply integrate it on their websites and start receiving crypto without hassle, we have the list of available app which you can download them from our Github repository and test them now.

API Suite

The comprehensive and defined API Suite has been designed to not only work as another income generation stream for Agate coin and token holders but also to let anyone use Agate as a white-label solution to acquire more customers.

API Suite

The comprehensive and defined API Suite on REST API standard, which has been secured in multi-function security pattern, has been designed to not only work as another income generation stream for Agate coin and token holders but also to let anyone use Agate as a white-label solution to acquire more customers. Obviously the cost of this API Suite is in AGT. The pricing schedule for the APO Suite involves different API call limits within which customers should deposit a minimum number of AGT token as a credit for. Hence, they should keep depositing as long as they use this system.
