Open Index Protocol


What is the Open Index Protocol?

Open Index Protocol (OIP) is an open source specification for a persistent worldwide index and file library useful for data publishing, file distribution and facilitating direct payments. OIP uses blockchain technology and distributed networking to operate with no central authority: record indexing, file storage/distribution and transaction management are carried out collectively by the decentralized network.

OIP is the first permissionless system with a decentralized and transparent index for digital content and protected file persistence. The system uses a Salutary Protocol model, which funnel financial incentive to both application and protocol layers, ensuring sustainability and antifragility of the system through open market incentive alignment of all participants.

FLO is a scrypt minable crypto-currency with quick transaction processing; average block time is 40 seconds. It was the first transaction-comment blockchain and is based on the Bitcoin and Litecoin source code. Up to 528 characters are allowed for each transaction comment. It has a firm token cap of 160,000,000, and the block reward halves every 800,000 blocks. The genesis block was mined June 17, 2013 and the last block reward is projected to be mined in approximately 10 years. FLO has a continuous record of correct, unaltered performance and has strong community support.



What is Λ L Ξ X Λ N D R I Λ?

Alexandria is a web application to search and browse everything published to the Open Index. It was the first application to use Open Index Protocol and was built by the OIP team alongside the specification.

The application was named as an homage to the ancient Library of Alexandria, a tragic example of the problem with centralization. Web information architecture in 2017 is similarly vulnerable because it relies on centralized hubs to store and distribute information. Because OIP uses distributed networks to eliminate central points of failure, applications like Alexandria can offer transparent access to any digital content, and resist censorship and information access entropy.
