OneChain is building an all-in-one Dapp that features a super wallet, a decentralized chat service, a lightning fast cryptocurrency transfer feature, and a decentralized exchange.
The company’s main goal is to provide a gateway into the world of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. Their decentralized wallet, exchange, social networking, and cryptocurrency transfer services are all working products that have been tested by 530,000 users. The project already has user validation and offers a lot of benefits that are worth exploring.
The ‘ONE’ token is an ERC20 compatible token used to gain access to all of OneChain’s services. Consumers pay transaction fees in ONE tokens when sending money from the Super Wallet, or on their decentralized exchange.
ONE tokens also pay for points on OneChain’s social networking platform. Points are used to access the decentralized chat service as well as other upcoming social media and e-commerce features.
Blockchain developers who wish to link their Dapps to OneChain’s wallet also exchange ONE tokens.
Finally, under OneChain’s delegated proof of stake consensus protocol a handful of selected nodes ‘stake’ their ONE tokens as collateral in exchange for the ability to validate transactions in a new block of the One Chain blockchain.
Digital wallets are essential for storing cryptocurrency funds and making payments.
Today the market offers thousands of wallets, which fall into the following categories:
- PC wallets
- Web wallets (Blockchain.info)
- App wallets (imToken)
- Hardware and off-chain wallets (Trezor).
Each category offers its advantages based on whether the user wants control, security, speed, convenience, or access to more tokens. However, at the same time, each wallet category comes with its own disadvantages: PC wallets require large amounts of blockchain data to be synchronized, web wallets often provide poor user experience on mobile, and hardware wallets are an inconvenience to carry around.
OneChain’s Super Wallet offers 700 cryptocurrencies, a user-friendly experience, private key user control, Redpackets for token airdrops, and compatibility with Android + iOS mobile devices.
The Super Wallet also features transaction speeds of less than 5 seconds, with fees costing less than 1 cent.
OneChain’s Thunder transfer uses Graphene technology to enable digital currencies to be transferred between wallets within 5 seconds.
Graphene is an open source blockchain implementation that was originally developed as the foundation of Bit shares, a cryptocurrency exchange marketplace (OneChain’s team members were early participants in Bit shares).
Its main attributes are its 3,000 per second transaction speed, a 3 second block time, and delegated proof of stake consensus protocol.
The Graphene infrastructure powers other Blockchains like Steemit, Peerplays, and Golos. Thunder Transfer also connects with many Blockchains using cross-chain technology.
OneChain seeks to develop an alternative to centralized messaging apps like Facebook messenger, WhatsApp or Skype. These apps are more vulnerable to hacks and have been known to compromise user data for financial gain. OneChain offers a chat service that is anonymous, secure, and anti-censorship.
Users can also upload multimedia files (video, music, images, etc), and quickly transfer a variety of cryptocurrencies to contacts using the Thunder Transfer feature.
The combination of social networking, social media, and peer-to-peer payments gives OneChain chat a competitive advantage over centralized messaging apps, payments services like Venmo, and even remittance services like Western Union.
The vast majority of cryptocurrency trading is still done on centralized exchanges. These exchanges are more vulnerable to hacks because they have a single point of failure. They are also more likely to be shut down by governments, or give up user identities if requested.
OneChain provides a decentralized exchange as a more optimal way to trade these digital assets, which are inherently built on decentralized technologies. The exchange is capable of making 20,000 transactions per second, integrates with the Super Wallet, features low transaction fees, and supports stable coins like bitUSD.
OneChain currently supports the following trading pairs: EOS/ BTC, ETH /BTC, EOS/USDA, BTC/USDA and RHOC/USDA, and they plan to activate a USD trading pair exchange in the near future.
PoS Consensus Protocol
OneChain uses the delegated proof of stake (or DPoS) consensus protocol (similar to the EOS Blockchain).
In delegated proof of stake, the network nominates multiple “witness nodes” as representatives who help make certain high-level decisions more quickly without polling the entire network.
These selected nodes ‘stake’ a certain amount of ONE as collateral in exchange for the ability to validate transactions in a new block of the OneChain blockchain.
Although this method is slightly more centralized, in testing it has been proven to provide Blockchains like EOS with 50,000 transactions per second.
