Constellation Labs Launches Global Ambassador Network
Ray Rehito Hatoyama, former Managing Director of Hello Kitty, joins as early Ambassador
San Francisco, CA, September 10, 2018 –– Constellation Labs (Constellation), the horizontally-scalable blockchain for consumer-grade applications, announced the launch of their Global Ambassador Network, which aims to offer the tools and knowledge needed to integrate blockchain into networks eager to embrace the technology around the world. While the early focus of the Global Ambassador Network was on mobility, IoT, and renewable energy applications, Constellation is now extending its push into a multitude of industries, based on Ambassador outreach and momentum.
Benjamin Diggles, Constellation’s VP of Business Development and Head of the Global Ambassador Network, said: “While market interest in blockchain is high, a clear understanding of the technology and real world use-case definitions are sparse and often misleading. By launching and scaling a Global Ambassador Network, Constellation will be able to extend its reach into core industries to capture the minds of those looking to assimilate blockchain into their solution workflows.”
Constellation strives to solve the scalability issues of legacy blockchains without reducing node counts to a degree susceptible to vulnerabilities — speeding up, rather than slowing down, as more people join the network. Utilizing a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) to offer a transactional throughput several thousand times faster than most blockchains, Constellation is set to achieve such speeds without the use of plutocratic proof-of-stake mechanisms.
The Constellation Ambassador Network is a global network of blockchain and crypto enthusiasts focused on creating strong word of mouth networks and growing local communities for blockchain projects that align with Constellation’s core mission — to advance the mainstream adoption of blockchain technology in a way that is truly decentralized and open to all.
Constellation Ambassador and former Hello Kitty Managing Director Ray Rehito Hatoyama said: “In 5 years, I believe blockchain will become the core technology for innovation, and I believe in Constellation Labs’s vision to bring decentralized technology to the next level. I saw an ambitious dream in Constellation. Constellation will take a big role of upgrading blockchain technology to a universal common language, and thus enhancing global connectivity, such as internet and mobile, that shaped the world to how it is today. I’m happy to be an Ambassador of Constellation Labs, helping to continue to propel innovation, together.”
In addition to Hatoyama, early Constellation Ambassadors include Sebastian Spitzer, New Business Specialist at REHAU; Ratul Saha, Founder of GetonChain; Julian Jung, Co-founder and Partner of Game Theory Crypto Group; and Jacob Mullins, Partner at Shasta Ventures.
Constellation, which raised $33.7 million USD during its private pre-sale in January 2018, launched the first version of its base code earlier this month, beginning the process of building out node networks. In June, the horizontally-scalable blockchain project successfully launched their flagship product Orion. Orion, a membership portal to the Constellation ecosystem, serves as a platform where the Constellation team, developers, and community members can communicate, share resources, and contribute to the network within a token compensation model.
Constellation is a horizontally-scalable blockchain microservice operating system. Its serverless architecture ensures high transaction throughput, allowing for consumer grade distributed applications to be built on the system. Constellation uses a protocol called Proof-of-Meme to achieve consensus. This method incorporates a node’s historical participation into delegate selection, rewarding benevolent behavior. An intuitive user interface provides a frictionless on-ramp for non-technical users to develop distributed applications on Constellation. For more information, visit constellationlabs.io.
