- AERGO Marketplace — platform to enable the sale and purchase of peer-to-peer computing assets. AERGO Marketplace to be accessed via the AERGO Hub public interface. Computing assets would include: storage, computing power, algorithms, contents, and more.
AERGO Marketplace Scheme of work:
- The core of the system consists of the following components: Blockchain engine, only one of its components called DD (Distributed Directory) is described — this is a system block that has its namespace and contains information about all the branches in repositories, is used to manage metadata, Virtual Machines AERGOVM and EVM, Block generator;
- Smart Oracles — oracle service providing the ability to retrieve data from external sources (Active Directory, email, SMS, etc);
- AERGO core consensus algorithm — DPoS, for user-defined repositories can be used other consensus algorithm: RAFT — for development or PBFT — for strict ordering;
- AERGOSQL — language for writing smart contracts using relational data model and SQL-like syntax:
- A distributed file system is a key component, metadata about each file including physical location, hash value, and various statistics is stored within the DD. Each node can store an unlimited amount of data;
- Distributed version control system — fork support, block reorganization, data merging from different repositories (possible in automatic mode).
Technical Paper is of high-quality, does not contain excessive «water.» However, some technical points are not properly described.

Julian Lenz is an experienced investor and advisor to a selective number of blockchain projects. As a serial entrepreneur (and early stage investor in the crypto market over the past five years) he has relationships and with advanced teams that are creating innovative solutions on. Julian has previously been an advisor and mentor to many startups involved with cryptography and enterprise-IT (as part of his Techstars work). He has an extensive crypto network — cultivated links to developers, partners, incubation labs and other research groups — that are exploring ways to solve real-life business problems using blockchain technology. Julian is a trusted advisor to many projects, crypto-funds and influencers that develop or work with bleeding edge protocols and dAPP’s.
Advisors of a very high level, who have many years of experience in blockchain research and development.
Conclusions on the project:
In general, the project looks quite confident. Behind the project stands a very well-known and strong Blocko company (the management and the project team work in Blocko), which is very well known in the development of blockchains of various levels for world-famous companies. In addition, the advisers of the project are very high-level and have many years of experience in the blockchain-development. GitHub of the project looks good — at the moment a lot of code is written and active work continues. TP of the project is a very high-level, although not all technical points are described properly. It can also be noted that the Blocko architecture presented in AERGO touches key issues and, together with Coinstack, implements a hybrid public-private blockchain model to create an improved solution for its corporate clients.
Absence of public sale is disappointing, although it was replaced by a reward system for community.
AERGO team is fighting very actively against those who are trying to resell allocation to private pools (OTC-deals). As a result, they completely managed to eradicate transactions of this kind, which should positively affect the further development of the project.
