What is Elastos (ELA)?
Elastos (ELA) is the first open Internet source operating system with a decentralized peer-to-peer infrastructure based on blockchain technology. It can be used to authenticate digital rights, transfer contracts, turn digital information into assets and will serve as a new, smarter and safer world wide web, also called the Internet of Wealth.
Elastos strives to be the safe and reliable Internet of the future. This will create an environment in which applications can be disconnected from the Internet for full control over their digital assets, such as books, movies, software or games. Even the average person who does not have digital properties can benefit from Elastos Web, since it makes it possible to process personal data or resell digital goods.
Moreover, Elastos is conceived as a platform for decentralized applications (dApps). However, it should not be confused with other blockchain projects as represents a blockchain-based operating system. It operates together with other blockchain projects and can be used to run dApps directly on the device instead of the blockchain, thereby solving the three main problems of the modern Internet-security, scalability and decentralization.
Elastos users will access dApps using conventional devices (PCs and mobile phones). According to the team, the Internet that we use today is an information web. Elastos Web will serve as another economic zone in which Elastos tokens are the base currency.
