ExHasta Catalyst is a decentralized innovation marketplace for high potential projects.
What is ExHasta?
ExHasta Catalyst is an intellectual property (IP) marketplace where the IP from Moonshot projects is developed and distributed at an extremely low cost. Currently, due to the high fixed costs associated with Moonshots, they are primarily the domain of mega corporations.The monetization and monopolization of IP taking place in mega corps like Google and Apple prevents innovators, entrepreneurs, and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to benefit from this IP. This slows the diffusion of breakthrough technology on a global scale. ExHasta can distribute otherwise unavailable IP to all innovators on the platform at an extremely low cost.
The process of IP distribution happens in four stages. Once the IP is developed there is a limited-quantity public auction of it. Eight months later, there is a low-cost unlimited-quantity public sale of the IP. All of the Moonshot project’s IP is made freely available 8 months after that. The small window of timed-exclusivity when the IP is auctioned at a higher premium is what enables ExHasta to distribute IP at such a low cost and eventually free.
Project Mercury, an ever-evolving AI-powered real-time public transit system, is an example of an ExHasta Moonshot. All of the designs, blueprints, source code, hardware specifications, contracts, management structures, and more would be available for purchase on ExHasta Catalyst. Entrepreneurs can buy all of the IP to create their own AI-powered public transit startup. Innovators can buy the AI algorithms and develop new solutions with the IP. SMEs can buy the AI algorithms and business models to make their products more future-resilient. Everyone can benefit from ExHasta Catalyst.
ExHasta Meridian is a one-month long innovator summit that provides applied training, workshops, guest lecturers, networking, and infrastructure assistance to attendees. Innovators can apply with CV or portfolio and are ranked by the ExHasta community through a series of blind and public elimination stages. Reviewers receive a reward in the form of a portion of the application fee in the form of EXH tokens when they review the applicant that advances to the following stage. The top 20 ranked applicants attend the next Meridian summit with all expenses covered.
