A protocol is a standardized set of rules for formatting and processing data.

What are protocols good for?

Ease of Deployment

Protocols provide a confidence in solutions working together smoothly, reducing the amount of work your team has to do to make your product work.


Protocols offer a standardized way to transfer information, allowing different groups and technologies to communicate.


Protocols allow you to know what the community has deemed important in a solution and know what to build toward.
