1 When does Trias plan to develop in Europe and the USA?

We currently do not have plans for expansion in Europe and America. Our primary focus will be in Japan. But we have started to explore opportunities in Hong Kong, and the Middle East.

We are pleased to update the community on the successful progress of implementing Tusima in Japan. Our latest endeavour involves a collaborative voucher project catering to retail stores. We’ve established a strategic partnership with a prominent local chain enterprise and will help them develop a voucher issuing system with the leverage of Tusima’s technology within the designated region. This will empower all participating stores to effortlessly issue vouchers using our platform and enable the seamless on-chain exchange of these vouchers.

Moreover, we have strategic plans to develop more DeFi applications associated with the voucher project, for example, buying or lending vouchers directly through the system. This presents an ideal opportunity for us to facilitate the seamless integration of more users into the web3 space. As the voucher project evolves and expands, we will also enable participating stores to utilize the platform for Security Token Offering (STO) issuance backed by their finance or supply chain assets. By doing so, we can empower these businesses with improved and secure financing alternatives that adhere to regulatory requirements.

The chain enterprise we are currently in talks with has a user base of 10 million users. Our discussions revolve around specific application scenarios, with the goal of launching the initial application by the end of this year and completing a full-scale rollout by the end of next year. Additionally, we are actively promoting related usage scenarios in various regions in Japan. Over the next 2–3 years, our ambition is to expand the platform’s reach to encompass over 50 million users, with 1 million daily active users.

Additionally, as the voucher project advances in Japan, we are actively discussing with several key partners in the UAE. We aim to establish connections between the Japanese voucher issuing system and other commercial voucher systems in the UAE, facilitating seamless vouchers exchange and expanding the scope of our voucher project. While our interactions with potential partners in the Middle East are currently in an early stage, once substantial progress is achieved, we will promptly announce it to the community, ensuring transparency and timely updates.

Imagine if most stores (and other businesses like hotels, movie theatres etc.) in a region can issue vouchers as a payment method for their own products, and all these vouchers are exchangeable with each other, then people in that region will not need to use any fiat currency very frequently at all. And if two regions, even across countries, enable the mutual exchange of this kind, there will no longer be any need for a dominant international fiat currency. This is when we see Web 3.0 becoming a predominant way of living. We are diligently working on finalizing necessary arrangements, and while we cannot disclose all the critical information at present, we anticipate sharing concrete updates with the community during Q2 or early Q3.

Last but not least, through my recent visits, we have made significant progress in building business in Hong Kong for Triathon. Though still at an early stage, I am optimistic about having some big news to announce in Q3.

2 What is the significance of the JPY stablecoin for Tusima and how will it benefit the price of TRIAS?

The Stablecoin application is a critical use case for Tusima, as we aim to provide a stronger technological foundation for businesses in Japan’s transit to Web 3.0. Tusima’s core competitiveness comes from the protection from the Trias Layer ‘-1’ network, which I envisage to become a new layer for the Internet TCP/IP protocol stacks.

The upcoming Leviatom will closely integrate with Tusima through Layer ‘-1’. Traditional financial applications cannot be fully transplanted and executed on EVM-hosted smart contracts, much like trying to port an entire internet payment program (such as PayPal) to run on Ethereum, which is highly inefficient. In such cases, our solution is to leverage Leviatom’s decentralized service mesh capability to support traditional Web 2.0 applications while connecting to Tusima’s contracts, thereby achieving full compatibility with Web 2.0 architecture. Our goal is to seamlessly operate all traditional Web 2.0 applications on our Web 3.0 infrastructure. The underlying layers of Leviatom also require the support of Trias’ Layer ‘-1’ network, especially for cross-chain operations between Leviatom and Tusima, ensuring trust and security.

Behemotum (currently implemented as FLock) will provide privacy-preserving big-data analytics and AI services for Tusima’s DeFi scenarios, also connected through Layer ‘-1’. We understand that traditional financial services require analysis and modelling of massive amounts of data for personal or company credit scoring. As such data cannot be entirely stored on the blockchain, it is typically stored on traditional data platforms. However, traditional data platforms have long been susceptible to various security threats. Behemotum is born to address the challenge of ensuring trustworthy security and preventing data tampering on these platforms while protecting user privacy during large-scale data analysis and model building. As Tusima begins to offer on-chain services for more complex financial scenarios, it will not only require Leviatom to support additional Web 2.0 applications but also rely on Behemotum to provide decentralized, efficient privacy-preserving big data analysis and AI model training.

These projects require strong support from Trias. With the increasing number of application scenarios, there will be a growing demand for project tokens, while each project’s operations will depend on Trias as the underlying fuel. Though I cannot make any predictions about TRIAS’s price, this will definitely contribute to its value appreciation.

3 Does Trias have plans to apply for international certification?

Yes, we are working on it.

4 Question regarding the authenticity of the information on Octa’s website.

The information on Octa’s official website is carefully verified before publication, especially regarding news that requires confirmation from the involved partners before release. Therefore, you can browse the website with confidence.

Additionally, the Octa official website’s English version has recently been revamped. Community members who are interested can visit the website to explore the products and projects Octa has undertaken in China.

5 Will Trias participate in China’s CBDC initiative?

China’s CBDC development is primarily governed by government-controlled big companies rather than being open to enterprises. So, we currently do not participate in its development. But a few of our big use cases are getting ready for connecting to it, making them into the new batch pioneer usage exemplars. One important project is developing and establishing a national-wide decentralized supply chain network on our blockchain and privacy-computing infrastructure. The long-term vision is for this decentralized supply chain network to achieve significant scale and seamlessly integrate with the backend servers of China’s CBDC. This integration would enable efficient, secure, and stable supply chain supports for manufacturing enterprises.

6 What is Trias’ vision?

Since the first release of our whitepaper, we have always been working hard on designing and building a Trusted and Reliable IAS (Intelligence Automation System). Our goal is to provide a trustworthy and controllable foundation for achieving the ultimate AI through the collaborative efforts of our eco projects.

Leviatom builds a decentralised community-owned and managed computation network so that an AI will not be centrally operated by any big companies, and will scale as needed. Behemotum builds a decentralized personal big data network with privacy protection, so that an AI can be fed on the widest range of data without breaching personal privacy and data ownership. Divina builds trustworthy and self-evolution microservices from all Web 2.0 source codes for an AI to operate. It empowers the “brains” with “muscles”. Ethanim enables human perceptible applications through decentralized hybrid reality infrastructure with cutting-edge AR devices and AIGM (AI-Generated Metaverse) capabilities, so that people can feel and interact with the artificial world more naturally and vividly. Triathon controls the entire infrastructure’s trustworthiness and security, while Tusima connects all digital finance assets with the real world monetary and finance systems.

Building upon these projects, we are designing Octavius for achieving the ultimate AI vision. Octavius is envisioned as a decentralized intelligence that can translate human languages into codes that interact with microservices running on Leviatom and data on Behemotum.

The present big Web 2.0 software services are complex and careful man-made orchestrations of microservices built by teams of developers, while Octavius constructs these orchestrations automatically when it receives human instructions. This will be achieved by having Octavius to actively communicate with all the micro services deployed on Leviatom to learn what each of them is capable of. It also communicates with all data access APIs on Behemotum for learning where to find the right data for its own learning and computing. So when receiving human instructions, it generates proper codes that orchestrate invocation chains towards the micro-services and data just like how the big Web 2.0 software services are built.

Moreover, Octavius actively talks to other eco-projects to improve itself and the whole infrastructure. It learns from Triathon the defects or deficiencies of each tested microservices or smart contracts and feeds its thoughts to Divina for bug fixing or new feature building. Through Ethanim, it understands each user’s behaviour from how he or she acts, and through Tusima, it knows how to adjust the token incentive mechanisms for each other eco-projects so that the whole infrastructure runs more efficiently and steadily.

While systems like ChatGPT engage in conversation with human languages, Octavius aims to become the interpreter for humans and machines. It helps everyone to easily control large-scale computing and data infrastructure to achieve his or her most fine-tuned goals. On the other hand, as the entire infrastructure is owned and governed by all the people, it represents the whole-will of the people instead of the business ambition of any large companies. With the final piece of the Trias ecosystem, the Octavius, we are thrilled to finally start assembling the Trusted and Reliable Intelligent Autonomous Systems.

Before you swiping up…

Regarding any questions related to Triathon, Tusima, and Ethanim each month, we will forward them to the respective project leaders. They will address these questions and provide answers to the community at the appropriate time through AMA. This approach ensures that your concerns receive appropriate attention and guarantees accurate and timely responses. We value open communication and transparency within our community and believe that these AMAs will foster a deeper understanding of the projects.
