What is nOS?
nOS is a user-friendly desktop and mobile application.
Think of nOS as an app store and web browser, a virtual operating system, with the ability to access a new, decentralized internet. On this new internet, apps work transparently and openly. Your data is safe, and it only goes where you want it to go.
nOS solves key issues surrounding dApp discovery, interaction, and development, allowing for true adoption of decentralized applications and blockchain technology.
1. On nOS, websites and apps host their content in a completely open and decentralized manner using Smart Contracts, giving users complete insight about what happens with their data. Unlike server-side backend code, smart contracts can be open, and users can see what happens with their data and actions before it happens. This allows for total transparency between users and applications.
2. To access the Open Internet, nOS introduces its own desktop and mobile client which features a new type of web browser. This web browser utilizes a domain name service built by nOS as a smart contract on top of the NEO Blockchain, and can be used to host and access applications and websites on the nOS protocol.
3. When using multiple dApps, users never have to work with different tokens. End-users only use blockchain platforms’ primary crypto-currency or token (i.e. GAS for NEO), and nOS automatically converts it to the proper amount of application tokens required for a specific transaction or invocation.
4. nOS introduces a dApp Discovery Gateway, where applications are listed and rated in a completely decentralized manner with Decentralized Authority.
the nOS Token Generation Event (TGE)
nOS will hold a Token Generation Event (TGE) in Q3 2018. Developers who are contributing to nOS, or are building apps on nOS will receive priorities in the whitelisting process. If you’re looking to contribute and/or build nOS apps, join our Discord Server.
nOS Decentralized Applications (dApps) have open, transparent, and immutable back-end code running on the NEO Blockchain.
GAS as a Utility Token
When using multiple dApps, users never have to work with different tokens. End-users only use NEO’s utility token GAS, and nOS automatically converts it to the proper amount of tokens required for a specific transaction or invocation.
Universal Smart Contract
The nOS Universal Smart Contract (USC) is generally applicable. It offers popular dApp back-end functions such as CRUD and Authentication.
Users can stake nOS tokens to gain voting power on the nOS platform. High quality applications get rewarded and become more discoverable, while users are more protected from low reputation applications.
