Introducing the Sora App
We are pleased to announce the new Sora App, the next step in creating the Sora Ecosystem, a decentralized autonomous economy that works for all. Within the Sora App, users can send and receive Sora XOR tokens, build reputation points and earn XOR by voting on projects curated by Sora.

Centralized control of economies presents a profound temptation to benefit only a small group of people, at the expense of sustainable development.

We believe that economies should be decentralized, yet rational. The Sora Decentralized Autonomous Economy (DAE) is the world's first decentralized economy, where everyone participates to create the best world together.

Soramitsu, founded by Makoto Takemiya and Ryu Okada, is building Sora with the aim to create a new type of economic system to improve the efficiency of society.
How the Sora Ecosystem Works:
For the first time in human history, blockchain technology can help in the creation of community driven goods and services.
1
COLLABORATION
Creatives and Entrepreneurs propose
projects to the Sora community.

2
DEMOCRATIZATION
The community decides on how to allocate newly created XOR tokens by voting on projects that are featured within the Sora App.
3
EMPOWERMENT
When you vote on a project, you're voting to mint new XOR for the producers. And if the project you voted for passes, you also get
some of the newly minted XOR as a reward.

Hyperledger Iroha
Hyperledger Iroha is a next-generation permissioned blockchain platform, aimed at helping businesses and financial institutions manage digital assets. Soramitsu was the original developer of Hyperledger Iroha and contributed it to the Linux Foundation's Hyperledger Project. Hyperledger Iroha is written in C++, making it ideal for use cases where high performance and reliability are needed, or for embedded systems.

Soramitsu uses Hyperledger Iroha to create services for users, including mobile applications for managing digital assets, identity, and contracts. Through our use of Hyperledger Iroha, we hope to contribute to a safer and more efficient society.

Hyperledger Iroha has intrinsic support for identity management. Each user in the system has a uniquely identified account with personal information, and each transaction is signed and associated with a certain user. This makes Hyperledger Iroha perfect for various application with KYC (Know Your Customer) features.
