From Bitcoin to the Internet of Value
Bitcoin set the foundation for the construction of a new Internet for the transfer of Value.
The Internet of Value is composed by the following layers: Store of Value (Bitcoin, Ether, etc); Business Logic (RSK Smart Contract Network- Ethereum); Payment Channels (Lumino,Lightning, Raiden) and Distributed Storage, Directory Services, Applications and Frameworks.
Both the RSK Smart Contract Network and now RIF OS were created as means to move this vision further by bringing business logic to the Bitcoin Network (RSK) and now with RIF OS an all in one, easy to use open blockchain infrastructure framework that combined are taking the Internet of Value to the next level.
