An index enabled by distributed ledger

The spatial index will be worth far more and should be part of a global public utility available to all.

A “stateful” spatial index enabled by Distributed Ledger technologies will be critical to generating, representing, distributing, and securing value across The Spatial Web in a way not achieved on today’s web.

Tokenization

The tokenization of this protocol represents a historical opportunity to monetize the protocol of the new web that was absent when the World Wide Web was established.

Spatial links and proximity

A stateful Spatial Web enables smart digital twins of people, physical spaces, and objects to be reliably and securely linked together, spatially.

Security and trust

The effect of this is that when an object or person moves into or out of any physical or virtual space, a Spatial Contract can be executed automatically, using permissions set by the owner, which trigger a record of the action and/or initiate a transaction. This makes the Spatial Web a trustworthy network for any form of interaction, transaction, or transportation.

Correspondence with the physical world​

With Smart Spaces and Smart Assets, Artificial Intelligence will be able to see, hear, touch, and move things both physical and digital using computer vision, the IoT, and Robotics. It can be used to guide drones and automated vehicles, restrict access to users or robots, and track Smart Assets from one Smart Space to another.

Interactions and transactions

Smart Contracts and Smart Payments can enable seamless and secure interactions and transactions in both virtual and geo-locations, letting users with Smart Accounts transfer Smart Assets, pay for goods and services, and be paid for the use of yours, from world to world.
