OneLedger
A Universal Blockchain Protocol Enabling Cross-ledger Access through Business Modularization

Mechanism

OneLedger enables you to focus building your business application through OneLedger modularization tools, which will communicate with OneLedger protocol using its API gateway. This mechanism will make your business application interact with different public and private blockchains synchronously through corresponding side chains implemented in OneLedger platform.

oneledger

OneLedger defines a three-layer consensus protocol to enable more effective integration of different blockchain applications.

  • Side-Chains: Side-chain is essentially а scalable “off-chain” solution from the main chain that offloads the consensus to the corresponding OneLedger side-chain which inherits all of the properties of the OneLedger protocol. Тhe side-chain can be permissioned(private) or permissionless(public). The user can implement the Smart Identity System to search for identities with a particular trust rating for infrastructure services, node operations and/or assign particular identities to maintain the side-chain. This side-chain can be synchronized with any public distributed ledger that supports hashed-time lock contracts(HTLC). Advantages of “off-chain” technology is: thousands of transactions per second, no need of any confirmation; very low commissions, which will also allow micro-payments; instant payments, as you will not have to wait for the miners to confirm.
  • Business Modularization: Businesses will be able to create specific modules for their needs (via user-friendly API system). This way businesses would easily access the OneLedger consensus protocol allowing their off-chain data to first interact with the OneLedger Blockchain, but also- connect and interact with all other Blockchains available on the platform. This way, businesses will preserve their internal access controls and specifications without suffering from any separations from the existing technologies.
  • Smart Identity: User will be able to manage an identity across multiple distributed networks. This is done by assigning a master key pair (private and public) to an identity. OneLedger also allows one identity to assign a trust value to another identity, thus creating a “web of trust” combined with PKI.
  • Chain Code Servive (dAPPs migration): OneLedger is developing SDKs to ease the process of porting and deploying smart contracts across multiple platforms. The end result is launching a dAPP on multiple platforms without the need to learn or write in different languages (Solidity, C++ etc).

Seele – The Blockchain 4.0

Seele claims to be newest upgrade in blockchain infrastructure – Blockchain 4.0

Lets see, how Seele justifies its claims .
For that we need to understand what are the previous versions of blockchain and what new Seele is offering us

Blockchain 1.0 = Bitcoin = Distributed Ledger
Blockchain 2.0 = Ethereum = Distributed Ledger + Smart Contracts
Blockchain 3.0 = EOS,Dfinity,Cosmos = Above + High thruput Transactions + CrossChain + Advanced governence consensus + Financial business integrations
Blockchain 4.0 = Seele = Above+ 1 Million TPS + Heterogenous Forest + Neural consensus algorithm

seele

Heterogenous Forest Network

Heterogeneous forest network consists of different subnets, each subnet can be seen as a hierarchical partition tree, the top of the tree chain is a global service chain, called “Meta chain”, which provides global configuration and scheduling service.

Seele

Neural Consensus Algorithm

The algorithm uses the position of coordinates on a virtual axis as the basis of the block ordering so that the block ordering no longer depends on the consensus of the pre-block and completely out of the performance bottleneck that the existing consistent protocol cannot be parallelized

seele

Value Transport Protocol

Seele proposes the Value Transport Protocol (VTP) based on the heterogeneous forest network architecture. The agreement covers the uniform identification of the assets on the chain and the routing strategy for asset discovery. It is a full set of transport protocol for the blockchain value network.

Quick Value Internet Connection

QVIC conducted targeted optimization. Not only retains the fast and efficient features of the UDP protocol, but also provides the integrity of TCP data transmission.

Usecases

  1. Social platform like steemit
  2. Games on blockchain
  3. Internet of Things.
  4. Other enterprise applications like cross chain application

Seele Token

  1. Rewards participated nodes with tokens (Currency issuance similar to POS,dPOS )
  2. Charges transaction fees, in order to prevent Sybil attacks, and to reward consensus node
  3. Governance mechanism

Seele Roadmap

Conclusion

This project promises a lot of technological breakthrough in blockchain industry, however, their claims are not supported by any significant prototype like beta. Team is pretty solid in theory but we have yet to see them develop something groundbreaking in crypto industry. Nonetheless Seele is a revolutionary idea and will have major impact when its realised completely. Such high impact projects which contribute significantly to blockchain should be embraced by everyone.
