Ans : One of the critical problems we are trying to offer scalable and reliable decentralized financial solutions that will bridge mainstream financial services with the digital asset ecosystem. This is pretty exciting opportunity as our world is going through a massive transformation. Disintermediating data is becoming one of the hottest topics approaching 2021. We believe that financial services will be one of those services to be disintermediated.

Lattice is the evolution of existing DeFi solutions by providing the best price and profitability for protocol users. It enables smart routing for trades and the ability to aggregate liquidity pools and incorporate multiple Automated Market Making (AMM) algorithms on Constellation’s scalable Network.We saw a massive trend occurring in crypto that brought new fundamentals to the space — that merged fundamentals of BTC — but applied it and repositioned it in a new utility.

Ans : Absolutely. We are getting ready to release a quick UI demo on what users can expect to see out of our technology. It will be a simulated demo where we are plugging in the backend over the course of the next month. V1 — our MVP will be released later in November.

Our goal over the course of the next year is to introduce more advanced and complex AMM’s — methodologies and data science that is used in the Hedge Fund world (quants if you will). Right now, Smart contracts can only handle simple numeric values. With Lattice and through Constellation’s ecosystem — we will be able to cryptographically secure more complex data structures. Constellation set out to cryptographically secure data pipelines — be oracles of data and measure the versacity of data. How this transcribes into DeFi — oracalizing data that can be used to create complex trade algos. In 3–5 year vision this will become a marketplace of oracalized and validated data (external data sources as well) that can be blended to create advanced trade algos — like those seen in practice in traditional securities trading and strategies.

On November 5th we will be doing several community IEO’s in Asia only. November, 6th we will be releasing on Uniswap.. and then shortly after we are listing on a few CEXs.


Ans : Part 1: Constellation’s Network, Hypergraph, is a resilient decentralized network that is globally distributed and is built to cryptographically secure big data making this the first scalable cybersecurity solution for big data processing.

So the congestion issues around eth were the reason we started Lattice — as it puts assets at unnecessary risk.
Lattice will be ultimately built on the Constellation Hypergraph allowing for nearly instant transactions and cheaper fees. Especially for traders and users who use the DeFi ecosystem frequently, Lattice is the perfect solution.
Having the Hypergraph infrastructure is the defining difference. We have a network that is already up and running that allows for horizontal scalability. Lattice, as such, scales easily as the underlying infrastructure scales.

Our leadership decided to focus on helping kick start our developer ecosystem to showcase how to build end-to-end solutions and businesses in the Constellation ecosystem. Think of it like Microsoft as an operating system building WORD and EXCEL. These are applications that ride on the operating system. In the same way, Constellation is essentially an operating system and the best way to show how to build and why to build on the Hypergraph is to build it yourself — and then let developers and community followers to build scalable businesses.

Ans : We are working with multiple attorneys and are evaluating several different optionsLTX is a governance token. It will let participants orchestrate the Lattice ecosystem and provide insight into how it operates. LPs will be rewarded in LTX. LTX will give them access to governance of the Lattice Exchange. We are exploring some really unique things around the governance of trade settlements and alternative business models. Our goal will be to give governance participants the ability to create scalable businesses out of Lattice. What we are doing here has not been done before. LTX could be used for fee rebates as well allowing holders to save on trading fees. DAG holders will benefit from LTX as they can get rewards for the liquidity they provide on cross-chain pools.

Ans :

From high level the Ethereum ecosystem is where the liquidity is. Many holders believe that this won’t really change. We see a huge opportunity to capitalize on the growth of the Ethereum network, and their limitations, and highlight Constellation’s core features and strengths of being a scalable base layer protocol. We will build interoperability between ETh and DAG in Q1/Q2 of 2021.

The Hypergraph is a competitor to Polkadot and Ethereum. It features full horizontal scalability, near instant transactions and consistently near zero fees. It is an operating system that allows for the buildout of Lighthouse applications like Lattice. Lattice features best in class DeFi features like multiple asset specific AMMs, aggregated liquidity pools, smart routing and cross-chain interoperability with cross-chain pools and rewards. There are not many functioning ecosystems out there that have a fully functioning mainnet running that can implement cross-chain swaps.

We are aggregating the best “products” in DeFi and on Ethereum, and aggregating them into Lattice but with near zero fees.

Ans : AMM as automated market making algorithms that are the backbone of decentralized swapping platforms. Uniswap spearheaded it by introducing a simple and yet effective AMM. However, different assets like stablecoins and regular utility tokens have different underlying mechanics. That means if you use one AMM for all types of assets you will incur inefficiencies as a user and thus loos ROI through slippage. We address that by having asset specific AMMs that are optimized for the asset a user is interacting with. On top of that Lattice will automatically route a transaction through the cheapest route by aggregating different liquidity pools from the ERC20 ecosystem as well as our own Lattice pools. Whatever route has the lowest fees and slippage will be taken for the user automatically. Lattice is meant to improve the ROI and reduce risks for the users.

Ans : We are still working on several models for this. Lattice will feature common pools of the erc20 ecosystem. Users can create their own pools as well. Smart routing will let traders get the best deal with the least slippage.

Additionally, the biggest benefit for DAG holders is to supply their liquidity to cross-chain pools and be able to earn LTX tokens. That means the DAG community can be actively involved in the governance and growing the first lighthouse project on the DAG Hypergraph. This makes both DAG and LTX more interesting from an ecosystem and user perspective.


Ans : q1: Great question. A lot of our focus in working with the US Airforce has been to validate our technology which improves our credibility for community builders that want to build on our ecosystem and for other businesses to build on our ecosystem. We will also use our community effort called Stardust Collective to help navigate the process for people and businesses to build on Constellation.

q2) we have more partnerships and businesses in the works that will show new opportunities to create end to end businesses on Constellation.

Ans : Great question. The Demo is to help give confidence to the community in what we are building and that we can build layer 2 technologies with great UI. Being a base layer 1, not many people can visualize what we build. The Demo will help showcase our ability to deploy layer 2 solutions and seed the community with an idea of what we are building.

With the Demo, we will also invite people into a new community to provide feedback and critiques of the platform and how to improve it. We want to work alongside the community, not just for the community, and we want them involved in the creative process. There will be a separate community built to handle feedback and feature requests.

Ans : I completely agree with this. We all choose products that have great customer support and responsiveness. Over the past year, we have built an incredible community in Constellation — the Stardust Collective is one such group of about 35 people that are currently responsible for educating the community on Constellation. We aim to employ a similar model as it has been extremely successful. Additionally, the leaders of Constellation work hand in hand with admins to address the community head on. We take weekly calls with our admins to equip them with marketing material and insight so they can best serve the needs of the community.

We want to adhere to decentralized governance and open source development, but with the quality of centralized support… it is a rather hard effort, but we have shown over the past 2 years that we are up for it

Ans : The Constellation Hypergraph is a novel mainnet technology that features high throughput as well as economic and technological scalability. That means our infrastructure is meant to process high throughput and the throughput grows with the number of nodes on the network. We see it like a Microsoft operating system. You have a powerful operating system as the foundation and now people want to see what you can do with such an operating system. So we are building lighthouse applications like Lattice to show what such an infrastructure can do. The same way Microsoft built excel, word and access as foundational pieces on top of their windows operating system. We anticipate that people will be starting to build their own solutions on the Hypergraph soon when they discover that they can scale their business model much easier than on ethereum and that they can integrate blockchain technology extremely easy into existing frameworks. Thus as developer and user adoption are the goal for the Hypergraph and Lattice we expect another wave of applications and token raises on the Hypergraph. Scalability is not just about the technological progress, but the economical, social, and operational aspects as well: it needs to incentivize multiple layers, be easy to procure and consumer, and work with a multitude of use cases.

Ans : Great question. One of our focus in our thought exercise as a team was “what would happen to DeFi in the event of a black swan event or market crash…. or if DeFi never expanded beyond the Eth ecosystem.” In these moments, the small retail investor get’s hurt as they can’t pull out liquidity fast enough because of high gas fees. Lattice will not only provide a better solution for the retail DeFi player, but also institutions. While institutional traders might be ok with high transaction fees, this is only going to get worse as DeFi gets bigger. As such Institutional traders will want to create predictive trading models based on tx fees. Our goal is to provide a set of solutions to these organizations that allow them to create institutional and predictable business models so that they too can scale their businesses.
