SOURCE Blockchain White Paper: Powering the Future of Web 3.0


  • Source Swap — An Interchain DEX & AMM built on Source Chain for permission-less listing of $SOURCE-based tokens, native Cosmos SDK assets, cw-20’s, and wrapped Binance Smart Chain (BEP-20) assets.
  • Source One Market — A peer to peer, non-custodial DeFi marketplace for borrowing, lending, staking, and more. Built on Binance Smart Chain with bridging to Source Chain & native Cosmos SDK assets.
  • Source Token $SRCX (BEP-20) — the first automated liquidity acquisition and DeFi market participation token built on Binance Smart Chain.
  • Source One Token $SRC1 (BEP-20) — a governance and incentivized earnings token that powers Source One Market.
  • Source USX $USX (BEP-20) — Source One Market stablecoin backed and over collateralized by a hierarchy of blue chip crypto assets and stablecoins.
  • Source Launch Pad — Empowering projects to seamlessly distribute tokens and raise liquidity. ERC-20 and BEP-20 capable.
  • Source One Card & Members Rewards Program — users can earn from a robust suite of perks and rewards. In the future, Source One Card will enable users to swipe with their crypto assets online and at retail locations in real time.
  • DeFi-as-a-Service (DaaS) — Seamless white-label integration of Source One Market, Source Swap, Source Launch Pad, and/or Source One Card with existing online banking and financial applications, allowing businesses to bring their customers DeFi capabilities.


Existing Blockchain Solutions are Falling Short

  • Majority of protocols are reliant on centralized exchanges for liquidity, limiting their ability to scale independently
  • Slow transactions speeds, high costs, limited scalability, and inability to collaborate and share information with other chains, has created severe limitations in Gen 2 blockchain infrastructure
  • There still exists a level of complexity in blockchain applications that remains a barrier to entry for the average user
  • There is not enough focus on building “bridges” for the enterprise to adopt this new technology easily and quickly
