U OS Network — a Universal Portable Reputation System — Launches Beta on May 15, 2019
TALLIN, Estonia, May 15, 2019, /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

U OS aims to become the digital reputation standard on the Web, making network 
economies more productive.   

U OS, a blockchain protocol that translates economic and social actions into 
reputation, proposes a universal portable reputation system and aims to become 
the standard on the Web. Adjustable to any e-commerce, social media, review 
platforms, and any network in general, the U OS Network is underpinned by a 
unique Delegated-Proof-of-Importance consensus algorithm, developed in-house, 
and based on NCDawareRank. After being in research and development for over a 
year, U OS is launching the public beta on May 15, 2019 with the top EOS block 
producers on board. 


The emergence of distributed protocols has taken the first step in creating the 
Web 3.0. U OS are moving towards a true peer-to-peer interaction without an 
intermediary that holds the keys to their digital selfhood. While 
cryptocurrencies enable decentralized financial transactions, infrastructure 
protocols let them run decentralized apps on the chain, the truly peer-to-peer 
social communications, reputation, and identity systems have just started 
showing their green shoots.

"Centralized services have a biased incentive structure for interpreting 
reputation data and disproportionate power to modify it. We are not controlling 
our reputation — it is confined to a single platform and context, thus cannot 
be detached and transferred to another place. This translates into a 
time-consuming task to understand who is truly behind the digital avatar of an 
individual or an organization. The absence of a universal and distributed 
reputation system is the reason why the decision-making process is slow and 
costly" — John Sneisen, two times best-selling author, monetary history expert, 
and U OS Advisor.

The U OS reputation model enables people to interact in the digital environment 
as sovereign individuals, solving the problem of not having complete and 
unequivocal ownership of one's digital selfhood and network influence. U OS 
allows digital entities — individuals or organizations — to have a unified 
reputation for a natural decision-making process about the trustworthiness of 
the peer. The U OS reputation is multi-context, transparent, and distributed.

The key characteristics of the U OS reputation system are:  

Transparency — the blockchain-recorded data is public and increases trust to a 
digital entity; 
Universality — the system can be integrated into any existing application via 
API and OAuth; 
Portability — algorithmic operation on the public ledger without belonging to 
any centralized authority; 
Privacy-friendliness — users are not required to reveal their identity to use 
the system;

"Despite being seemingly complex, U OS is already neatly packed into 
user-friendly interfaces and APIs to make the user experience as smooth as 
possible for casual users as well as developers" — Andrew Perepelitsa, U OS 
Head of Developer Relations.

The U OS beta launches with U Community — a decentralized application to run 
Decentralized Autonomous Communities (DAC) and Decentralized Autonomous 
Communities (DAO). The beta will also see the very first plug and play case: 
integration with the U Today, a news, research and educational agency covering 
the blockchain industry and new generation technology.

U OS Network:

U OS Network is a blockchain project bringing the Universal Portable Reputation 
system to the Web. U OS Network has been in development since November 2017.
