Problems & Solutions

Given the lack of existing solutions to satisfy the requirements experienced in a real, commercially productive blockchain application, Lition has designed a proprietary blockchain solution. This new blockchain to solve these shortcomings has been described in this document. Lition has presented the design for a blockchain network and minimum requirements for a governing agreement among a privileged subset of the nodes’ operators to ensure that sensitive and private data can be handled and securely deleted on demand and even connected to smart contracts for deletion. The guiding design criteria of postquantum security for data integrity, data minimization under the constraint of providing fault tolerance, privacy of sensitive data, a provision to delete all occurrences of sensitive data, and the freedom to join as a (non-privileged) node without any special provisions or legal obligations have been described, along with the novel approach to solve the security issue of private data (and private transactions) in a blockchain technology by providing a technique to publicly prove the correctness of a transaction involving private data without revealing the private data. This proof is not fully trustless but is of a probabilistic nature and similar to non-interactive zero knowledge proofs (NIZKPs).

Token Utility & Use Cases

Tokens are used to for creation of private sidechains, to pay for all transactions on the Lition infrastructure and for access to token staking rights.

  • Energy - The Lition Exchange platform is the embodiment of our vision for an open and direct energy exchange and the first use case for the Lition Energy Ecosystem. We simplify the legal, operational and economic hurdles for green power producers and allow customers to buy truly green electricity at an affordable price.

  • Healthcare - Currently, medical patient data is scattered. A great deal of effort is required to collect and settle insurance claims. With our blockchain solution, this sensitive data that is used for the claim process can be centrally stored on a private sidechain to which only doctors and insurance companies have access. After the claim, the patient can delete the data on the private sidechain, ensuring efficiency and privacy at all times.

  • Pharmaceuticals - Data privacy is crucial across the pharmaceutical industry. The research, development, and clinical testing data required for approval of new drugs by public institutions like the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), and private patient data concerning illnesses, medication, and family medical history require absolute confidentiality. However, relevant parties still need access to that sensitive information. With the new Lition mainnet, confidential data will be stored on a private sidechain, providing access to involved parties, and allowing for deletion of private patient data when no longer required.

  • Automotive - Odometer manipulation is a major issue in second-hand car sales in most countries. With the Lition blockchain, anonymous movement data can be stored on a private sidechain, ensuring privacy of the vehicle holder and fraud protection upon purchase. Furthermore, movement data may also be on a private sidechain, especially used in a smart city context.

  • Enterprise Data Management - Global data breaches will amount to USD 2.1 trillion by 2019. As data exchange between enterprises is necessary, privacy and security is extremely crucial. The Lition blockchain offers privacy, security, and trusted data exchange. Decentralized data storage, limited availability of private data, and highly restricted access prevents continuous data theft and sabotage.

  • Media - Growing usage and distribution of digital media requires transparent and secure systems concerning copyright protection and compensation for originators. Originators’ details, e.g. specific info on content, sources, age restriction, etc. can be displayed in a private sidechain, along with personal user data such as buyers’ bank data to compensate the originator directly via the blockchain.

  • Bond Finance - Corporate bonds require myriad approvals (e.g. credit scores, balance sheets) and middlemen (for settlement, custody, etc.). Lition's blockchain enables decentralized storage of all prerequisites for a loan, plus automated smart contract issuance. Furthermore, after the bond has been issued, partial or all private data can be deleted.

  • Warehousing/ Logistics - The Lition blockchain allows for public storage of inventory data, such as stock items, certificates of origin, quantities, prices, complaints, etc. Linking this information to a private sidechain with purchaser information can automate payment procedures, increase efficiency on restocking, optimize transportation, improve material quality, and improve response to supply and demand.

  • Travel - Common search engines for hotels, flights, and rental cars operate as middlemen between the customer and partners of the tourism industry, causing unnecessary costs on both sides. With the Lition mainnet solution, all offers can be stored on a public blockchain. The customers’ private information during the booking process (date of travel, prices, bank data, etc.) is held on a private sidechain, where payment procedures and travel details are kept anonymous and secure.
