In several dimensions, the current centralized map system of the world is flawed and is ripe for disruption. Blockchain technology – with its ability to facilitate global collaboration in an open and secure manner – has huge potential to disrupt the status quo by underpinning the birth of a new, open, decentralized map economy that will appeal to the mass market.
We have pioneered a new open map architecture, the Hyperion ecosystem, based on the our widely adopted open map technology and latest advancements of Blockchain technology. This ecosystem is designed to reward everyone with a share in the wealth they create and will ensure privacy is protected whilst hosting a new generation of decentralized applications requiring quality map services.
This paper outlines our vision for the birth of this new transformative ecosystem capable of addressing the needs of 10 billion users and 100 billion devices. This will lead to a much more egalitarian, prosperous society where everyone will get a share in the wealth they create.
