Ontology published an article which further outlines the functions of its ONTO Client, and also published an updated node report to highlight the top candidates for its Triones Consensus Nodes. The ONTO Client was launched on July 9th, and Ontology’s window for Triones Consensus Node candidates opened on June 1st, and will close July 16th.
The first version of the ONTO Client is now available for Android (6.0 and above). The iOS version is prepared for release once the App Store listing is ready, and a desktop wallet application is scheduled for release in August of 2018. NEO News Today recently covered the ONTO Client for Android release, which can be read here.
Prior to its launch, the Ontology team had the application audited by SlowMist, a professional security team that provides security audits and defense deployments for exchanges, wallets, and smart contracts. SlowMist graded Ontology with high marks in its operating environment and malicious certificate detection, private key and storage security, node security, and various other evaluation metrics.
Currently, the ONTO Client’s main functions include ONT ID creation and backup, verifiable claim support, a wallet for storage and transaction of ONT and ONG. Furthermore, it provides a one-stop token swap for ONT MainNet mapping and migration.
Ontology’s recently published article also provides a visual demonstration of the ONT ID verifiable claim authentication and authorization, wallet transactions and ONG claim, and the one-stop token swap. To view the demos visit the link below:
