What sets Laconic apart from competitors?

The potential of blockchain technology is currently hampered by the middleware that connects it to actual applications. Some solutions already exist to index and store blockchain data, but they rely on centralized monopolist services to index and serve the data; and they accept and use data that cannot be cryptographically proven to be authentic and accurate. The Laconic Network stands apart by addressing precisely these two fundamental and existential problems — it indexes and serves data that is both decentralized and cryptographically provable.
