Meros transactions are verified outside of blocks. As soon as you send a transaction, it’s voted on, becoming confirmed within seconds.
Meros doesn’t have any monetary fees. Instead, your computer spends a fraction of a second on a math problem to prove your transaction isn’t spam. This enables a global system anyone can access.
Meros isn’t owned by any foundation or corporation, and no party has any special powers. Anyone can start contributing to the network via our CPU-only mining algorithm.
You never have to blindly believe someone else. Every transaction is fully audited and verified by your own node.
Bitcoin is not viable for day-to-day payments. Not only does it have limits in how many transactions it can handle, it’s simply not fast enough. While solutions like the Lightning Network exist, second layers provide a fragmented ecosystem and will never have the abilities of a competent first layer.
When it comes to other cryptocurrencies that also acknowledge Bitcoin’s shortcomings, they also aren’t fast enough, don't have the functionality necessary to succeed, or are not sufficiently secure. Meros solves these problems in order to be a truly viable currency. In order to accomplish this goal, Meros was built to be instant, feeless, decentralized, and scalable.
Fees make currency inaccessible, even with fees that are as low as 0.05 USD. Even five cents mean a lot to those who survive on just hundreds of dollars a year, especially when fees quickly accumulate. Digital currency must be accessible to everyone, everywhere, anytime.
Central authorities, whether it be a singular monolithic party, a coalition of five, or an elected group of fifteen, do not empower the individual. The individual being able to verify, produce, and approve transactions on their own empowers them.
If a cryptocurrency only gets a single transaction per second, it doesn’t matter if it can theoretically handle a thousand. There must be a flexible first layer that allows proper scaling as usage increases, but doesn’t focus on having a high TPS solely to have a high TPS.
Meros uses a DAG, and transaction confirmations are not affected by any block time.
