ICO: XYO Network – Blockchain Just Entered the Real World
With over 1 million location-verifying beacons already built, and hundreds of thousands ready to be enabled, blockchain’s first crypto-location oracle network has arrived. Our mission is to enable smart contracts to interact with the real world as if it were an API. Join us in decentralizing location-reliant trade markets.
SMART CONTRACTS CAN NOW INTERACT WITH THE REAL WORLD AS IF IT WERE AN API
Location data is used every day across the world. Societies and economies are becoming increasingly reliant on the certainty and security of location heuristics. Self-driving vehicles, package-delivering drones and smart cities will likely call for an increased reliance upon trustless location data. The adoption of the technologies of tomorrow centers on their ability to trust location heuristics they receive from an off-chain resource.
We believe the current location technologies lack the necessary certainty and security properties necessary to move us into the future. We have developed an ecosystem of crypto-location protocols and components, which leverage the strengths of blockchain technologies, and solve the short-comings of location technologies relied upon today. Our project is called the “XY Oracle Network” (XYO Network). The XYO Network enables trustless transactions through an ecosystem of crypto-location components that can bridge the gap from the world of today, to the world of tomorrow.
XYO Network Components
The XYO Network has four primary components, Sentinels, Bridges, Archivists, and Diviners. These four components enable geo-focused, consensus-building and trustless verification of location data. This means that when you write a smart contract that specifies for an object to appear at a specific XY-coordinate, if it appears there, you will know that it was at that location with absolute certainty. This is all done without risk of spoofing the location signaling device(s) verified by thousands of Sentinels in the XY Oracle Network with the longest Proof of Origin chain (thus yielding greater confidence in the heuristics).
COMBINED, THE COMPONENTS OF THE XYO NETWORK CREATE BLOCKCHAIN’S FIRST EVER IDENTITYLESS, TRUSTLESS LOCATION PROTOCOL
PROOF OF ORIGIN
In a trustless system, data may be lost, damaged, tampered with, or otherwise corrupted. Traditional Proof of Origin in a trustless system relies on a private key for signing transactions or contracts in a system. This works very well with the assumption that the node on the network that signs the data in question is physically and virtually secure. If the private key is compromised, then the ability to prove origin falters. Proof of Origin (Proof of Origin) is the key to verifying that ledgers flowing into the XYO Network are valid. A unique ID for source of data is not practical since it can be spoofed. private key signing is not practical since most parts of the XYO Network are difficult or impossible to physically secure, so the ability for a bad actor to steal a private key is too feasible. To solve this, XYO Network uses Transient Key Chaining. The benefit of this is that it is impossible to falsify the chain of origin for data.
