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.

State of the Layer: All Hands – March 24 2015

Every Tuesday we have an internal All Hands meeting where developers and contributors on the project get together and provide updates on the previous week’s happenings and discuss the upcoming agenda. Most of what is happening has been behind the scenes recently, helping integrators and performing thorough testing, while new features and enhancements continue to be added to the platform. To keep the community informed of our progress and up to date here is the summary agenda from this weeks meeting.

Synereo – AMP-Attention Economy- Crowdsale is launching today March 23,2015

By Judith – BizDev at the Omni Foundation

Synereo crowdsale is launching today – March 23rd 2015, 8:00 PM GMT.

Synereo Evolution (CoinTelegraph)

The AMP token is a cryptocurrency deployed as a meta-coin on top of the bitcoin blockchain, using the Omni-Layer.

The value of the AMP token comes from its inherent use in the Synereo network, as a means for paying for user attention.

To understand more, please visit here: http://blog.synereo.com/2015/03/22/amp-economy/

The Synereo crowdsale is supervised by the Omni Foundation. The Omni Foundation has access to all transactional information, with their executives serving in the role of trustees for the AMP tokens. Synereo has no access to these funds without their approval.

Synereo is taking great care to secure and safeguard all funds for this crowdsale and beyond.

This document will detail the policies and mechanisms put in place for this purpose as well as for the AMPs issued and not yet distributed.AMPlogo PICTURE 2

AMP Wallets

The entire amount of issued AMPs, one billion (1,000,000,000), will be generated by Craig Sellars, Co-founder and CTO of Tether and Technologist for Omni.

Craig will act as trustee for all initial AMP transactions, under a multi-sig solution requiring his approval to be used, allocating them to different wallets. Craig will further act as a trustee and evaluator for some of these wallets, as described below. Craig will oversee AMP use and ascertain that it is done according to the following bylaws.

AMP wallet distribution

Wallets holding AMPs to be distributed will be published before the crowdsale begins and remain transparent to the public.

The following wallets will require Craig Sellar’s direct authorization as well as his participation in the creation of the transaction when AMPs are released from it:

1) Crowdsale Wallet. Upon the completion of the crowdsale, Craig will overview  the records and approve that AMPs are sent only, and in direct proportion to the funds submitted, to the participants in the sale.

2) Future Crowdsale Wallet. This wallet will be sealed until such a time that we announce another public offering or come into a formal agreement with an established investor to purchase AMPs.

3) User Reward Wallet. This wallet will be sealed until the Synereo platform goes live, at which point it will be used to compensate users who migrate to the network.

4) Content Creator Reward Wallet. This wallet will be sealed until the Synereo platform goes live, at which point content creators will be able to register for the reward program. AMPs will only be sent to the addresses made public by these content creators upon their registration.

AMPs will be divided to wallets with this distribution: 

  • 18.5% will be placed in the Crowdsale Wallet.
  • 10% will be placed in the User Reward Wallet, used to compensate users as they join the network and invite others, contributing to its growth.
  • 7.5% will be placed in the Content Creator Wallet, given to content creators who begin operating on the network.
  • 10% will be placed in the Founder Reward Wallet, awarded to the founders of Synereo, vested over a period of 30 months.
  • 11.5% will be placed in the Bounty Wallet, awarded to contributors and developers.
  • 42.5% will be placed in the Future Funding Wallet. We aim to have two more funding rounds, spaced 1-1.5 years “amapart, each providing the necessary funds for the next leg of the project’s development.

Staggered Distribution 

The User Reward Wallet and Content Creator Wallet may only distribute the allotted rewards in a staggered manner, over a period of six months. This assures that rewards will not be quickly liquidated, increasing the chances of them being used in the Synereo platform and contribute to the AMP economy.

Users with accounts that are eligible will receive their weekly allotment during this period.

The Founder Reward Wallet will also distribute funds over the longer period of time of 30 months, as also described in the Vesting clause of the Synereo Ltd. Founder Agreement. Each month, the founders will receive 1/30 of the AMPs allocated to them.

Generation of new AMPs

As part of the Proof of Social Contribution (PoSC) mechanism, up to 5% more AMPs will be generated each year (note that this is lower than the year after year growth in both user numbers and market value for social networks over the past 15 years). AMP generation will also depend on the approval of Craig, making certain that this cap isn’t crossed.

Unsold AMPs

If the cap is not reached in the upcoming crowdsale, unsold AMPs will return to the Future Funding Wallet, holding the AMPs kept for future crowdsales and investments. This wallet can only be accessed pending the review of Craig, who will have to ascertain that their use is as defined.

Multi-signature mechanism

All bitcoins received during the crowdsale will be kept in a multi-sig wallet, generated by Armory Lockbox on offline and/or air-gapped machines. Transactions cannot be generated unless 3 out of 5 keys are used to sign it.

This protects the funds received from any one point of failure, whether theft, the loss of a key, or the inability of one holder to access the wallet.

Three of the keys will be held by the Synereo founders.

One key will be held by Meni Rosenfeld, the Chairman of the Israeli Bitcoin Association, and one of the most trusted figures in the crypto community.

Another key will be held by another trusted third party, to be revealed shortly.

Review of contributions in fiat

Participants wishing to contribute in fiat may do so by sending a wire transfer to Synereo’s company bank account. All details will be available on the crowdsale page, at crowdsale.synereo.com.

We will periodically post the information of such received funds with the details of the contributors hidden. The Omni Foundation will receive read-only access to Synereo’s bank account, certifying that the wires reported have indeed been received.

Unique Bitfinex selling account
[in preparation]

Existing wallets:

  • Crowdsale Wallet (185000000 AMPs)
  • User Reward Wallet (100000000 AMPs)
  • Content Creator Wallet (75000000 AMPs)
  • Bounty Wallet (115000000 AMPs)
  • Future Funding Wallet (425000000 AMPs)
