Overview of Sora
SORA is a new economic system that decentralizes the concept of a central bank as well as a network that implements a new way to architect a parachain blockchain that connects to the Polkadot relay chain and ecosystem with in-built tools focused on DeFi.
After Sora clears the seventh floor of Castle Oblivion, he encounters Riku, who declares that he will be the one to rescue Naminé and that she doesn’t want to see Sora.As Sora’s memories of Naminé become stronger, and as his memories of Kairi fade away, Sora becomes obsessed with finding Naminé.The two fight multiple times in the castle’s halls, with increasing ferocity.Vexen, hoping to undermine Marluxia’s plans, warns Sora not to blindly trust his memory, after luring him into a memory-based Twilight Town; however, before Vexen can tell Sora about the memories from “the other side of [his] heart” and the existence of Roxas, he is eliminated by Axel.
VAL is a complex model in and of itself and will be fully explained in a future article, along with the initial rules and parameters for staking and validation on the SORA v2 Network.VAL tokens are given to validators and nominators as a reward for staking.
After defeating the Darkside, Sora finally meets Naminé, who has escaped Marluxia’s custody at Axel’s prompting.In order to stop Riku, Naminé breaks the memories in his heart.Larxene arrives, and she reveals that Riku is a replica created by Vexen and that Naminé has been manipulating both his and Sora’s memories as part of Marluxia’s plot to take control of the Organization by controlling Sora.Naminé tries to remind Sora of Kairi, but Riku interrupts, challenging Sora again for the right to protect Naminé.Riku angrily fights Sora, calling his charm fake, and runs off after being defeated.Riku appears before Sora again, as he leaves the eleventh floor.Sora becomes even more fixated on finding Naminé, and Donald and Goofy worriedly warn Sora to be careful.Sora runs off in a fury and enters the next memory-world, Destiny Islands, alone.They discover that they both have exactly the same memories of Naminé, as well as identical charms, supposedly given by Naminé.When Larxene attacks, Donald and Goofy arrive to support Sora, who manages to eliminate her.
SORA is computed based on actual transactions and meets the standards of international best practice as set out in the IOSCO Principles for Financial Benchmarks.The key features and calculation methodology of SORA can be found here.
