Taurus is an off-chain/on-chain, safe and scalable protocol powering good derivatives. The protocol intends to standardize by-product buying and selling and supply a distributed blockchain backend for persisting and executing contracts. Contracts are generated and signed securely offline, and could also be transmitted over any community. The protocol leverages MultiSig contract expertise and Elliptic Curve Cryptography within the type of ECDSA to generate and confirm digital signatures. The protocol enterprise logic is maintained in a system of good contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. The protocol operates in two modes: peer-to-peer and moderated, permitting exchanges and/or unbiased dApp builders to make the most of its performance. Finally, the protocol is an open supply challenge supposed to be ruled by a proof-of-stake Decentralized Autonomous Organization or DAO. Decentralized governance facilitates steady integration and improvement with consensus of the governing the group.
