Cardstack is the experience layer of the decentralized Internet. Cardstack is building a new experience layer that helps users orchestrate their interactions across the (d)Apps they use, ushering in the age of mass market adoption of decentralized technologies in an open ecosystem.
The mission is to build an economically sustainable software ecosystem that ﬁghts back against the rampant lock-in mechanisms of centralized platforms. With the foundation of Cardstack as the base, the decentralization movement will ﬁnally have the tools to deliver the promise of blockchains to people around the world via on-ramps of their choice.
The initial implementation of the Cardstack token mechanism is written in Solidity and is currently on the Ethereum testnet. With Cardstack Tokens, users purchase credits to use software in the ecosystem, while makers and miners are rewarded proportionally, based on usage data, etc.CARD are the tradable tokens based on the ERC20 standard of the Ethereum network. When CARD are converted into SSC, they are locked in a reward pool and distributed to makers and miners based on a multi-variable model.
The Cardstack Foundation exists to conceptualize and realize the software-driven ecosystem that oﬀers users a cohesive user experience while rewarding makers and miners through a fair allocation of value created.
