TOS is a decentralized layered blockchain network that operates on the basis of the unique SDAG technology.
What Is SDAG?
Super Directed Acyclic Graph is a modification of the existent DAG technology that leverages hierarchical chain entanglement network. In this model, each tier of the distributed ledger network stores data relevant to it, in a way similar to the traditional government organization. Essentially, the low-level tiers combine to form the second-last tie, and so on, until you reach the helm. However, unlike the government model where countries are independent, SDAG technology interconnects the ‘countries’ (entanglement) creating a vast network with endless peer-to-peer connections.
Because each node on the network stores data relevant to it, instances of data redundancy are zero. On the other hand, the direct peer-to-peer connections facilitate the quick and secure sharing of information and resources.
Distinctive Characteristics Of TOS
Hierarchical Block Network
TOS supports a tiered network block, a feature that enables the separation of data, reducing the occurrence of data redundancy.
High-value Transaction Data Charges
Due to the implementation of top-notch security features and the Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm, charges imposed by TOS are considerably higher as compared to other similar services.
Technical Features Of Things Operating System
- Balance Of Time And Space: This balance assist in the improvement of the efficiency of process conducted over the TOS network. Moreover, it reduces the chances of data redundancy by a substantial margin.
- Unlimited Capabilities: Thanks to blockchain technology, the TOS network is scalable, and can therefore support an unlimited number of user nodes. Furthermore, any device, irrespective of its specifications, can easily connect to the TOS network.
- Password Economics Balance: The provision of both free and chargeable transactions ensures that TOS maintains a mutual balance and check relationship. Additionally, it sustains the transmission and storage demands, as well as upholding a viable entry threshold.
Advantages Of TOS
Alleviating The Cost Of The Internet Of Things (IoT)
Typically, distributed ledger technology creates direct connection during data transmission. Contrariwise, the existent IoT infrastructure rely on centralized data centers, which often require colossal amounts of money to establish and maintain. Therefore, TOS significantly reduces the cost of IoT.
Big Data Management
Blockchain ledgers are renowned for their remarkable ability to effortlessly handle voluminous amounts of data, a common occurrence in the IoT sphere. Besides, decentralized networks are transparent, more secure, and more scalable than their traditional counterparts. Hence, integration of TOS massively improves the efficiency of IoT systems.
Security And Transparency
TOS will leverage the Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm to make the network secure and transparent. In addition to this, records of all transactions will be stored on the incontrovertible blockchain ledger.
The TOS project was conceptualized in late 2017 with the establishment of the TOS group. After this, the group embarked on the development of the core technology on which the platform will be built. Before the end of 2018, the project intends to have a working prototype in place. Once this is done, TOS will start testing out inaugural units. The first version of TOS is expected to become available at the beginning of 2019.
