What is Lamden?
Lamden is a suite of developer tools that speed up the process of creating new and custom blockchains and apps.
Why the name Lamden?
We see ourselves as blockchain sherpas, guiding developers to create the next generation of digital asset applications. Lamden comes from the Sherpa language, meaning “to guide.”
If Lamden has no transaction fees, where do transaction fees come in?
In exchange for public interaction with Clove and free chain-to-chain payments in the blockchain network, chains are expected to allocate a certain amount of their bandwidth confirming payment channel payloads. What this means is that average users can transact for free, and corporate partners will handle the network.
What types of blockchains are supported by Lamden?
We are starting with the Bitcoin-based blockchains and the Ethereum network now, but will be developing an abstract interface that supports any chain that adheres to a set protocol that can create and confirm payment channels on Clove.
Please explain how the Lamden protocol token (TAU) works.
For chains to swap assets with each other, the users on each chain have to have a wallet or account on the other one to receive or spend the funds in the other asset denomination. While this makes sense for 1 or 2 chains, when you are potentially interacting with dozens of chains, it is impractical to keep track of that many accounts and wallets. The Lamden Tau token is a simple token that every chain can interact with. This allows users to use a single agnostic type of token to interact with any chain on the network.
How do I connect with the technical community?
The Flora Hub will be a place where developers come together to share code, chains, applications, and resources with one another. It will be a website for social interaction. Users will also be able to upload and download packages from the Flora package manager to take advantage of the collaborative nature of open source projects. In the meantime, find our GitHub here: https://github.com/Lamden
What system will Lamden use to validate block transactions?
We believe that Proof-of-Work is not only wasteful, but also promotes centralization through the accumulation of large mining pools. Therefore, Lamden will function using a Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS) protocol. You can think of DPoS as technological democracy, where the Lamden community can vote for the individuals that they want to run the network.
Does Lamden have a roadmap?
Yes! It actually had to be updated due to our rapid progress. The updated version can be found on our home page.
Token and Exchange Info:
How do I add the custom token?
'Token Address: 0xc27a2f05fa577a83ba0fdb4c38443c0718356501 Decimals: 18 Token Symbol: TAU'
Can I mine TAU tokens?
Lamden Tau were distributed through the ICO and are not mineable. However, Lamden is reserving some of these tokens for later distribution techniques, and plans on incentivizing participants in other ways later on.
Where can I trade Lamden TAU?
Currently, Lamden is listed on HitBTC, EtherDelta, Idex, RadarRelay, and CoinFalcon.
How is Lamden different from IOTA?
IOTA uses a directed acyclic graph to keep the size of the blockchain down. It still, however, is a primary main-net cryptocurrency. Lamden is a decentralized network of blockchains of all technology classes.
How is Lamden different from Hyperledger?
Hyperledger requires you to build a chain from the ground up. Lamden has tools to get a blockchain spinning up quickly out of the box with little effort.
How is Lamden different from Lisk?
Lisk requires you to use their technology for side chains. Lamden allows you to use Lisk's technology, or any other technology.
How is Lamden different from Interledger?
Interledger is a protocol that sets up intermediary ledgers in between chains to swap assets. We see that as adding more complexity to the system, when the goal should be to reduce it. We use payment channels and independent validation instead.
How is Lamden different from Ark?
We believe that Lamden is more focused on the adoption of enterprise blockchain technology than Ark, given our enterprise suite of tools for beginners, as well as the inclusion of atomic swaps that will seamlessly allow trustless exchange of assets between chains in a more automated way than Ark’s “smart bridge” technology. There is also a stark difference between their 5 tx/s versus our 10,000 tx/s.
