Instead of rewarding just the people at the top, who’ve been rigging the rules in their favor since the beginning of time, the game will completely reset with a new set of rules. @Daniel Jeffries

Easy to Use Solution, Backed up with Blockchain
Given the groundbreaking movement towards decentralized systems recently, blockchain technology is the obvious foundation upon which to base Scorum. We’ve decided to build Scorum’s blockchain protocol on the Graphene Framework utilizing a Delegated Proof of Stake consensus algorithm which will best meet the needs of our high-traffic network. As we move closer to our Crowdsale, we’ll share in more detail about using this foundation for Scorum.
We’ve partnered up with Microsoft to make use of their Business Intelligence tools within our stats centers. Traditionally reserved for processing financial and business data, we’re taking these features to the field of sports analysis to give fans and writers in-depth data analytics.
One of our main goals is to introduce casual users to the world of cryptocurrency in an approachable and straightforward way. That’s why we are developing a convenient and secure ecosystem to allow for seamless and quick access to Scorum’s services.
