Earn $STORE rewards for securing and staking the $STORE zero-fee public blockchain.
During zero-fee settlement layer launch ages, STORE miners will be validating zero-fee transactions and voting in a one entity, one vote democratic governance. For transaction validation, STORE Labs, Inc. will provide software for miners to run on their computers and simple instructions to set up a private or public cloud instance to host STORE data (public clouds could be AWS, Azure, etc.). STORE miners will earn $STORE block rewards for the purpose of securing and storing the $STORE ledger. For governance, STORE will provide tooling to capture votes. Miners will only have a single vote, no matter their staking size.
Once governance is formally ratified, STORE can be upgraded from a zero-fee, p2p payments network into a p2p cloud computing platform where only 17 miners (existing or new) need to form a new Market for the purpose of mining data. Founding miners will have the option to continue only mining the zero-fee settlement layer, as well. STORE will provide a governance framework for miners to make economic decisions in their individual Markets. Miners will then have a single vote at the protocol level and a single vote in their own Market.
Total staked and locked up in USD as of January 10, 2020: Nearly $7 Billion
This may grow as the $20 billion Ethereum protocol transitions over to Proof-of-Stake.

First, the more sound a cryptocurrency’s long-term monetary supply is, the less diluted returns will be. Second, the longer a miner secures a proof-of-stake protocol and re-invests their staking rewards back into staking, the more tokens they’ll earn.

Once a 1e1v governance is ratified, use your single vote in governance to charter datacoins.

As a $STORE miner, decide to upgrade your node to also mine data by providing developers with compute, storage, runtime, more (Storage miners on STORE are a ≈decentralized AWS™).
Now as a data miner, earn even more $STORE in exchange for selling your p2p compute and storage to tokenized apps (tApps).
If your Market of 17 miners votes to provide zero-fee compute to a tApp, instead of being paid $STORE, you’ll earn the tApp’s datacoins. This positions datacoin miners as a new type of YCombinator or Series A investor. This is how zero-fee, p2p compute exists. More
Low, non-compounding inflation of 20 Million maximum $STORE per year gives STORE a competitive advantage.

 Expected Yield on STORE are a blend of up to four founding launch phases before a one entity, one vote governance is ratified (1e1v)
 Real Yield is the annualized yield expected from staking, after accounting for a network’s inflation. Real Yield is calculated as the nominal staking yield adjusted for the inflation rate.
 Estimated costs are as of 12/18/19
 Estimated Costs on STORE are based upon a wallet owner having a 25% probability to win the founding Initial Mining Auction (IMA) of 68 seats. Miners earn block rewards for every block secured on STORE. Earning Power (EP) for a miner is proportional to their amount of $STORE staked relative to all other miners but it is limited to a single vote in a 1e1v governance. To increase EP, founding miners are incentivized to compete in all founding Initial Mining Auctions. To increase EP after the genesis block – to earn more of the maximum, non-compounding 20 Million $STORE annual block reward – miners are incentivized to compete in ongoing, quarterly IMAs. EP is capped by STORE’s security budget of which gives $STORE utility not just as a staking and security token but also as a zero-fee, p2p payments and value transfer token. Once datacoins are chartered by governance, $STORE will also be a utility token for buying p2p compute and storage resources for developers to tokenize, open, and therefore trade app or device data. Datacoins will be issued as a separate utility token on STORE. They’ll emit on the schedule of 1MB data = 1 datacoin. Each tokenized Web2 app or device will issue its own datacoin on the STORE cloud. With datacoins, developers will be able buy and build with each other’s streaming APIs and datasets. They can even pay their users.
 “Allocated Supply” means the number of $STORE tokens that are contractually obligated to be created and distributed to $STORE owners. These tokens are not yet circulating and cannot be resold. (Once they are created and distributed to $STORE owners, STORE will shift to using the term “Circulating Supply.”). Learn more at http://storelabs.org/about.

Centralized data centers (whether AWS or a private cloud like Facebook) are on their way to becoming the world’s largest data producers. As STORE brings data-rich, decentralized computing online. it opens up data with its “⅔ trust model” so data becomes tradable and programmable, while protecting data creator’s privacy. If open data reaches product/market fit, it would help drive the value of $STORE. So, one day mining datacoins may be more profitable than mining bitcoins while at the same time, not wasting the energy in the process.
If tokenizing data generates more revenue for developers than centralizing it in their own datacenters, these economics may slowly and then swiftly shift computing to the STORE p2p cloud. Storage miners – effectively a decentralized Infura – will inevitably operate p2p data centers within STORE Markets.
Facebook’s private data centers (2017)
Why data centers? At first, most $STORE mining, especially for the zero-fee settlement layer, will happen in public clouds like AWS. As costs of storage, CPU, and more grow, to maximize profits, Storage miners will be incentivized to find cheaper forms of them. p2p data centers are inevitable.
$STORE block rewards can give STORE the tooling to eventually outpace public cloud incumbents.

These tools will exist on STORE through three paths:
Markets (of 17 miners) develop these tools and can optionally license them out to other Markets in exchange for block rewards
The standalone companies of today and tomorrow can license their tooling to STORE markets in exchange for block rewards
Public clouds like Amazon AWS, limited by a single entity and single vote in governance, can license their tooling to STORE in exchange for block rewards

$STORE is similarly priced to Ethereum at the time of its ICO in 2017
Data is as of 2/21/2020
*Review all data and methodology at https://research.storelabs.org/onepoint
We estimate that owning $85,000+ of $STORE positions one to win a founding Storage miner auction and $35,000+ wins a founding Validation miner auction (PoS). STORE Labs, Inc. is conducting ongoing and invite-only Regulation D and Regulation S security offerings (up to $4.7 Million).
Estimates are based upon 100% of $STORE owners participating in the founding mining auction and the price of $STORE being $0.069. You can calculate your probability of winning the first STORE auction at http://research.storelabs.org/howtowin
STORE will launch across 3-4 founding Initial Mining Auctions into ~170 Proof-of-Stake miners before attempting to ratify a one entity, one vote governance (1e1v) . Once ratified, $STORE can be mined by an unlimited number of Markets (with 17 miners per Market). Governance votes to grow Markets through ongoing, quarterly IMAs.
