INTRO

nOS is a virtual operating system on the NEO blockchain, which will include an app store and a web browser. In many ways, nOS repeats solutions of Cardstack, developed on the Ethereum blockchain, but for decentralized applications on the NEO network.

Protective measures against the tokens depreciation

Tokens Vesting Schedule:

  • Private Sale Tokens will be unlocked quarterly during 9 months, first 25% will be instantly available
  • Locked Token Incentive & Reserve tokens will be unlocked quarterly every 120 days
  • NEO Council & NGC tokens  will be unlocked quarterly during 9 months, first 25% will be instantly available
  • Vested Company Token Reserve will be unlocked quarterly during one year

 

NOTE:

  • Due to future technical requirements of nOS token utilities (Selective Supply Increase), nOS may hold a “token swap” event in the future. Users may be required to undertake specific steps in the future to acquire new tokens during the “token swap” event.
  • There is no information about what will be done with unsold tokens.
  • Due to Selective Supply Increase (SSI), the total token supply may increase periodically in the future. The SSI amounts and period may be adapted over time; however, it can never exceed 5% per year.

 

 

PRODUCT

The relevance of market problems solved by the project

nOS project seeks to create an Operating System for the NEO blockchain. nOS solves key issues surrounding dApp development, deployment, discovery, and interaction, allowing for true adoption of decentralized applications and blockchain technology.

 

The issues team seeks to resolve include:

  • Improving the user friendliness of decentralized applications
  • Decentralizing Authority — users can stake NOS tokens to gain voting power on the nOS platform
  • Making the use of different tokens more convenient — end-users only use their own preferred crypto-currency tokens, and nOS automatically converts it to the proper amount of tokens required for a specific transaction
  • Opening back-ends — nOS Decentralized Applications will have open, transparent, and immutable back-end code running on Smart Contract platforms, including NEO and Ethereum.

 

The description of key products and project technology

nOS is essentially a full stack solution for the development of decentralized applications. It consists of the nOS protocol, the nOS name service, the nOS client and the nOS file system.

nOS browser functions as a web browser, with the added benefit that it integrates with the nOS Protocol, a blockchain-powered web protocol that facilitates secure and open accessibility of nOS dApps.

 

The nOS Protocol resolves domain names that exist on nOS Name Service, a blockchain-powered decentralized implementation of a Domain Name Service, and allows for dApps to register domain names which are discoverable on nOS (e.g. mydapp.neo or my-dapp.eth).

 

nOS client is a user-friendly dApp discovery platform (or “App Store”) where rankings are decided in a decentralized manner via Decentralized Authority.

 

nOS Filesystem is a peer-to-peer protocol that allows for content to be distributed in a secure and decentralized manner. This content gains increased availability, transparency, and longevity compared to traditional data hosting solutions. Content integrity can be validated by looking up a file’s hash within nOS Filesystem, therefore increasing file verifiability.

 

The stage progress and milestones of the project development (Roadmap)

The roadmap is scheduled up to 2019 and provides some major milestones of the project development without deep technical details.

 

The nOS MVP Client is available on GitHub. Currently, developers can build nOS apps on their own NEO Privatenet. Soon, nOS will release its Testnet where users will be able to interact with nOS applications.


Activity on GitHub  is high. Latest commit was 4 days ago.

 

The importance of blockchain in the project

nOS project is developing a blockchain-based operating system to ease the creation of dApps. The nOS protocol integrates with nOS name service, which is a blockchain-powered implementation of a Domain Name System. Just as standard websites need to register domains with a domain registrar, a decentralized application that uses nOS is required to register a domain with nOS name service.

 

The nOS file system allows content to be distributed in a decentralized way. It can be used to distribute frontend materials to the users.

MARKET

Competitive environment

There are existing project with similar solutions which

financial indicators are as follows:

 

  • Cardstack - $35M raised during ICO, market cap $4,5M, 0,12x USD ROI
  • Zippie – $19,2M raised during ICO, market cap $1M, 0,05x USD ROI
  • NKN - $12,6M raised during ICO, market cap $10,2M, 0,8x USD ROI
  • Elastos - $94M raised during ICO, market cap  $75M, 0,79x USD ROI
  • Blockstack - $52M raised during ICO, the token is not traded yet.

NOTE:

All the competing projects have quite poor financial indicators and returns since ICO

 

The project advantages

  • The project has significant awareness in the market with lots of perceived value, unmet demand and community support
  • The team are made up of City of Zion developers with a track record in building working applications
  • Project was able to attract Neo Global Capital as an investor and to animate several NEO ecosystem developers to build dApps that run on the nOS testnet
  • Project has a large following on social media, mostly also through the close links with the NEO community

 

 

SOCIAL ACTIVITY

The project popularity in the social networks and discussion forums

The project is detected on the radar of the next influencers: Lendex, DiddyCarter, Mandy, ICO Drops, Ian Balina, MMCrypto, Coin Bloq, Midgard Research, OhHeyMatty, Shin Chan.

 

Telegram: 34.2k members, user activity is high.

Twitter: 12.9k followers

RISK ASSESSMENT

Pros:

  • The project has significant awareness in the market with lots of perceived value, unmet demand and community support
  • The team is made up of City of Zion developers with a strong track record in building working applications
  • Project was able to attract Neo Global Capital as an investor and to animate several NEO ecosystem developers to build dApps that run on the nOS testnet
  • Project has a large following on social media, mostly also through the close links with the NEO community
  • Active development on GitHub

Cons:

  • Quite poor financial indicators of most competing projects
  • The advisory board consists of only one member, though he is very well experienced
  • Outside of tokens and trading, no “killer” Apps have been deployed on top of blockchain technology.
  • nOS is tied to a single blockchain and depends on NEO’s success

CONCLUSION: Project has a good technological base with very strong team of developers from City of Zion experienced in creating own decentralized applications. nOS may be a very good investing opportunity for an ICO investment if you are NEO ecosystem believer. nOS counts with the support of the NEO community and is already very advanced at the stage of the public token sale. The code base is being developed very actively. The main question is whether it was necessary to create a new token for nOS if the same functionality could have been achieved using the NEO or Gas token.
