Ontology Roadmap: Aristotle 2020

Ontology Gas | 01.23| 95

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. —— Aristotle

Recently, Jun LI, Founder of Ontology, has shared the strategic plan on YouTube with global community. In the video, he mentioned about the 2020 roadmap and the upcoming technology breakthroughs, which attracted much attention from our community members.

As we all know, Ontology is a high-performance public blockchain and distributed collaboration platform, has always spared no efforts to the construction of Chain Network and Trust Ecosystem.

From the day Ontology founded, we shared our roadmap with our global community, and it is divided into three main sections: Socrates (2018), Plato (2019) and Aristotle (2020).

Do you remember that? Let’s have a quick recap.

In this article, we will focus on the Chain Network section.

During Socrates 2018, the Homogeneous Chain Network was the main topic. In this connection, we had our MainNet released on June 30, 2018, providing Wasm and VBFT consensus, transaction parallel verification support, and the authority management. Later, we had the cross-chain POC, threshold signatures and parallel transaction execution released. Then it came with the Chain Network PoC, Sharding and Performance Tuning by the end of the year.

In Plato 2019, Heterogeneous Chain Network was the key point. We brought up with the launch of Cross-chain TestNet and Sharding TestNet, which all ranked top worldwide.

Now it is Aristotle 2020, a new chapter for us, we still keep moving forward and never stop. In this year, we will concentrate on several key features:

  • Cross-chain: Include the Relayer Chain, will realize the cross-chain between BTC, ETH and ONT;
  • VM: Include the Multi-VM and Wasm-JIT;
  • Layer 2;
  • Oracle;
  • ONT ID 2.0 and DDXF 2.0;
  • Anonymous Transaction;
  • ONTFS (Ontology File Storage);
  • On-chain voting.

We will elaborate the above tech points one by one in the following months. Meanwhile, the documentation center and tools for our developers will also be enhanced, as well as the online courses we introduced before. Developers can feel free to make their hands dirty on the blockchain development.
