      2. Migrated MetaDEx interfaces to use the new rational pricing (instead of float)
      3. Employ a fixed 8 decimal pricing structure to allow UI to be “easy to use”
      4. Numerous ongoing bugfixes to UI
    2. TXindex handling improved, UI will now assess config and offer to add the txindex=1 directive if it is missing
    3. Atomic parsing experiments including implementation of a payload DB

TAU-CHAIN – Programmable decentralized P2P network based on ontologies and reasoning

By Judith Jakubovics- BizDev at the Omni Foundation

Dear Omnis

It’s turning out to be another exciting and productive week! The Omni Foundation is privileged to provide a platform to so many innovative projects.  Omni allows for the issuance of Smart Properties and assets on the Bitcoin blockchain, and we like to share some of the leading projects using the platform and protocol.

Today, I would like to introduce TAU CHAIN

“If law-making is a game, then it is a game in which changing the rules is a move.” – Peter Suber presenting Nomic

Tau-chain is a fully decentralized P2P network being a generalization of many centralized and decentralized P2P networks, including the Blockchain. Its interpretations, uses, and consequences are far from being a P2P network only, and include software development, legal, gaming, mathematics and sciences, logic, crypto-economies, social networks, rule-making, democracy and votes, software repositories (like decentralized Github+Appstore/Google Play), decentralized storage, software approval and verification, even “doing your homework in History or Math” in some sense (stronger sense that search engines), and many more aspects.

Tau Chain uses the language of Ontologies to unify the languages of:

  • Knowledge
  • Rules
  • Logic
  • Computer Programs
  • Network Protocols

The Software Client

a) Stores the ontology of local rules

b) Determines the actions using a REASONER

Reasoners

a) Are tools that infer new rules or conclusions based on old ones

b) This is done intelligently, using pure logical reasoning + supply proofs of the                  results.

TAU CHAIN NODE – is therefore, an intelligent agent that is able to communicate with other agents, at the very same language which is human readable.

TAU CHAIN NODE can communicate with other languages, like HTTP, once implemented in RDF.

τ -chain node is an intelligent agent able to communicate with other agents, at the very same language they’re written with, which is quite human-readable. It can communicate with other languages as well, like HTTP, once implemented in RDF.

The rules of the network are determined by its users. Conversely, many independent “universes” can be created over τ -chain, that may or may not share τ ’s timestamping. They can also reference to each other, allowing code-reuse: recall that rules are code, since Tau Chain has a unified language. Moreover: it provides an ability to implement Decidable computer programs w

ith RDF, namely DTLC languages rather Turing Complete ones.

The implications τ -chain node is an intelligent agent able to communicate with other agents, at the very same language they’re written with, which is quite human-readable. It can communicate with other languages as well, like HTTP, once implemented in RDF.

Arrow of time is brought into the network using the Blockchain algorithm. Items can get into a Merkle tree that will be signed by a miner, roughly speaking.

The network will also function an RDF-speaking distributed storage, namely Kademlia DHT, letting hashes of items to be time-stamped in a mechanism which is up to the rules of those languages will be described later on.
