What is RAIDA?
RAIDA is the Redundant Array of Independent Detection Agents. RAIDA has data-supremacy like blockchain, meaning no one can bring it down, control or manipulate. Yet RAIDA is faster, more secure, totally private, more energy-efficient, quantum-safe, and scalable to the entire world's population. RAIDA does what blockchain simply can't do. The RAIDA is patented (USPTO #10,650,375), next-generation system on a global scale.
Go fast and beyond with RAIDA
RAIDA is vastly superior to blockchain and any other authentication system. The following are its main attributes:
The essence of money is that it cannot be counterfeited, allowing us to track who among us has done work and created value for the economy. RAIDA-based currencies take trust to the highest level ever. Using the patent-pending RAIDA technologies (The patent is to keep others from locking us out of the technology), independent system administrators from all around the world leverage thousands of servers and networks to create an unbreakable system that nobody and nothing can dictate. Note that the RAIDA does not create, store, transmit, track or broker any currency. The only function of each RAIDA Cloud is to detect the authenticity of the coin.
Sometimes, the Sentinels will be unavailable. When unavailable, Sentinels are restored or replaced. The repair protocol cloud is called "Triple Kerberos" because it uses three tickets. Kerberos is a network authentication protocol that works based on 'tickets' to allow nodes communicating over a non-secure network to prove their identity to one another in a secure manner. It is designed to provide strong authentication for client/server applications by using secret-key cryptography.
RAIDA is truly private and doesn’t have a public ledger. If you were to capture one of the RAIDA servers, you would only have 1/32 of 1/25th of the authentication data. So, if you were able to decrypt it would not give you ownership of any data. To crack the encryption, you would need to guess the Authenticity Numbers of a majority of the RAIDA. RAIDA’s authenticity number uses a 16-byte password that is 100% random. Blockchain can be hacked using quantum computers as it doesn’t have a bottleneck of how many guesses can be done each second. With RAIDA, we can only guess 8 million per second per RAIDA. Guessing it even with the help of quantum computers would take all the time in the Universe.
RAIDA has been recogonized as one of the top five energy-efficient payment systems in the world. RAIDA transactions cost as little as 0.00002 cents per transaction. Legacy blockchains use 235,000 times more electricity per year. RAIDA achieves incredible transaction speed without compromising the overall efficiency.

How is RAIDA the world’s most secure data system?
Low Latency Transport
The User Datagram Protocol, or UDP, is a communication protocol used for time-sensitive transmissions such as video playback or DNS lookups. It speeds up communications by not formally establishing a connection before data is transferred. This helps make RAIDA the fastest payment system in the world.
Advanced Encryption Standard
The RAIDA uses 128 bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) symmetric encryption algorithm to transmit data between the client and RAIDA clouds. AES was designed to be energy-efficient in both hardware and software. AES encryption is used by U.S. for securing sensitive data. AES is faster and more quantum safe than public key encryption used by almost all other payment systems. This helps make RAIDA the fastest and most quantum safe payment system in the world.
3rd layer of security
The RAIDA uses custom binary protocols that are designed to minimize the amount of network traffic needed for the requests. Authenticating one note requires only 57 bytes (less bytes than some DNS requests) and can fit into a single UDP packet. This helps the RAIDA to be the fastest payment system in the world and also fast at moving Data.
Defending the RAIDA
RAIDA Nodes are made up of many servers that are constantly synchronizing. The Primary RAIDA are built for speed while the mirrors are built for fault tolerance. Clients know that if a Primary goes down, it is to switch to the Mirror instantly. While Primaries are located on high speed data centers, the Mirrors are hidden behind reverse proxy servers (Servers that hide their locations). Each RAIDA is in a different legal juristiction (country) and have different administrators. This ensures no systemic risk of failure.
The RAIDAs are actually clouds of servers. The Primary RAIDA in a cloud is usually located in a data center that has 4Gbps bandwidth. All 25 RAIDA Clouds have over 100Gbps. This large amount of bandwidth allows a CloudCoin to authenticate all 1.4 Billion of its coins in under one second. The RAIDA can process thousands of notes in microseconds because the software was written in the high-performance C language and all data is kept in RAM. The performance of the RAIDA can be increased by increasing the power of the server and by sharding the data. This makes the RAIDA both vertically and horizontally scalable. However, the RAIDA is already able to handle the world's transactions faster than any other payment system.
There are 25 RAIDA clouds called Sentinels that provide RAIDA Resolution. Some of the Sentinels have "shards" and know the secret locations (IP addresses) of 32 RAIDA clusters (Detection Agents). Each of the 32 RAIDA clusters is designed to handle one or more of the "Shards." There are a total of 800 RAIDA Shards and 25 RAIDA Sentinels per RAIDA network. The Sentinel clusters hide behind Content Management Systems. The Sentinel IP addresses are hidden, and only the Content Management Systems know their IPs. The Sentinels each hold a directory of all the IP addresses of the detection agents in their crypt. Only the Sentinels see the IP addresses of the detection agents, so the detection agents’ locations are obscure.
RAIDA Sentinels around the world
Independent Detection Agents
A different organization controls each RAIDA cloud and supporting Guardian. Each RAIDA is tasked with simply keeping their RAIDA working. RAIDA Admins may make money by recovering lost coins (Coins that have not been used for over five years) or by receiving payments for data storage directly from user or donations. RAIDA Admins are world-class System Admins. The goal of the RAIDA is that there is no governance needed. This means that no decisions need to be made. The RAIDA Admins are there for life and can pass their RAIDA down generations so long as the keep their RAIDA up. Generally an organization is tasked with hiring and firing (if the RAIDA Admin does not fulfil their obligations) RAIDA Admins and deciding if the RAIDA sofware will be updated yearly.
RAIDA Clouds operate under different controllers and are not beholden to each other but instead are peers (equals). They can use whatever technologies they like, such as Linux, Windows, PHP, C#, Java, Apache, Tomcat, IIS, MySQL, etc.
In theory, all the RAIDA clouds could go down, and so long as one still works, no one can damage the data on the RAIDA network.
With few exceptions, RAIDA Clouds are located in different countries around the world. This guards the RAIDA against the actions of governments. Because the speed of electricity can circle the globe in milliseconds, there are no performance issues.
It is assumed that RAIDA Clouds will go down completely and have all their data hacked. That is why it is possible to discard RAIDA Clouds and rebuild new ones somewhere else simply.
Data Supremacy is a term coined by RAIDA Tech's Founder Sean Worthington. Sean noticed that what made the Blockchain unique is that it had no owner and that it could not be altered or made unavailable by tech giants, governments, hackers and even the administrators who manage the servers (miners). He looked for other databases in the world that had Data Supremacy but could only find one: The Root DNS Servers. Data supremacy is a significant development for mankind. Worthington designed the RAIDA to be fault tolerant by removing all systemic risk of failure and by making everything redundant. He also designed the RAIDA so that it could be used to reach the goal of a theoretical "perfect currency". Such a currency would have no fees, trade instantaneously, provide 100% privacy and could even be recovered if lost. RAIDA-based currencies are so good, it is not possible do better.
RAIDA Authenticity Detection Protocol
The RAIDA protocol is a highly light protocol that requires only milliseconds to execute and sends and receives just a few hundred bytes of data. Clients send authenticity requests in parallel to 25 RAIDA clouds. It only takes milliseconds for signals to travel to the other side of the planet and back. Each RAIDA cloud responds with either "pass" or "fail." The RAIDA protocol requires no sessions or cookies. The conditional GET method is used to reduce unnecessary network traffic.
