The Bridge Protocol is an open, distributed network of trusted machines and users promoting behaviors, standards and enforcement mechanisms to provide real-world value and application. The system facilitates an ability for users to deploy business processes that comply to existing standards and regulations. Our private blockchain will provide secure processing of assets, with an aim to guarantee trusted execution using smart contracts, eventually backed by real-world regulatory compliance in the nation which they occur. The system will be comprised of trusted virtual machines, providing user accessible functions for enterprise-grade business operations. The Bridge Protocol Corporation will begin issuing digital identities to permit individuals and businesses to engage securely and freely, while building extensive real-world trust networks. Early identities will be centrally issued and managed by the company to promote a trusted and stable foundation to the Protocol. For wider adaptation and versatility, this management system will allow self-sovereign identities to be recognized and managed. The first service offered on the Protocol is a Tier flagging of these identities, which coupled with contract logic developed by the Bridge Protocol Corporation, will allow for an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) to have auditable KnowYour-Customer (KYC) information to ensure regulatory compliance.
