nOS

Smart internet for the smart economy

[Short general description]: nOS is a user-friendly desktop and mobile application. It will encompass an app store and web browser, a virtual operating system, with the ability to access a new, decentralized internet.  nOS aims to encourage consumer level adoption of NEO dApps by providing a safer and easier way to use applications. Conclusively, the new internet will allow apps to work transparently and openly while flowing safe data. 

 

[Main contribution proposal]: nOS aims to encourage consumer level adoption of NEO dApps by providing a safer and easier way to use applications. Upon installing the nOS client, users will be able to log into nOS with their encrypted WIF or hardware wallet. The user dashboard will feature a dApp browser, NEP-5 token wallet and profile / KYC settings. Users will be able to run dApps 100% client side in an isolated environment, as well as automatically log in using their nOS profile and wallet information.

 

[Main problems tackled]: nOS will introduce a Javascript library that will enable developers to build their applications with familiar frameworks such as React or Vue.js. Transaction and invocation requests can be sent to the NEO blockchain through simple Javascript functions. Smart contract code can be programmed in any of the general purpose languages supported by NEO. At the same time, dApps will also be able to utilize the nOS Universal Smart Contract (USC). The USC will be hosted on the NEO blockchain and contain behaviors such as authentication, storage management and NEP-5 token behaviors. The nOS USC aims to simplify the development process and reduce spending on smart contract deployments, lowering the barrier to entry for smaller scale dApps to join the NEO ecosystem.

 

[Innovation]: 

1) nOS will have a utility token with various functions. Developers will be able to stake nOS tokens to reserve a .neo domain name and access bandwidth on the nOS Decentralized File System. End users will be able to stake nOS tokens for voting rights on dApps that they like, helping the dApps to gain visibility and trust, as well as being rewarded for voting truthfully. dApps will also be rewarded based on voting, creating the possibility for high quality applications with no income stream to generate revenue.

2) No need to use multiple NEP5 tokens, only use GAS and the platform will automatically convert it.
