Unova is a blockchain network with privacy-enabled data distribution clusters and cross-cluster distribution capabilities, made possible by the Web3 data distribution privacy protocol and multi-layer architecture. It’s the foundation of a new way of distributing data built on Web3, leveraging its own blockchain, smart contracts, dApps, and powered by UON, its native cryptocurrency.
What is Unova?
Our end goal: to transform production supply chains today, and the world’s supply chain network tomorrow.
With Web3, people, machines & businesses can trade value, information & work with global counterparties they don’t know or explicitly trust, without an intermediary. The most important evolution enabled by Web3 is the minimization of trust required for coordination on a global scale. This marks a move towards trusting all constituents of a network implicitly rather than needing to trust everyone explicitly and/or seeking to achieve trust extrinsically.
Decentralized data architecture (Web3) is changing how the web works, moving the internet into a new era, building the path towards common data standards and rules allowing for a decentralized infrastructure to run applications that understand the data.
Move away from a centralized internet where big organizations control your data. Unova does not store data but instead provides the infrastructure for companies to use. This is essential for creating global cross border data exchange where companies don’t need to trust one organization to manage their data.
A strong infrastructure basis for future proof supply chains
Instead of every organization (companies, governments, regulatory bodies, etc..) each building their own applications (software systems) that are incompatible and make it virtually impossible to connect global data, our infrastructure has rules, standards, smart contracts, and everything built-in, allowing each party to use our network and existing applications or build their own compatible platforms and use the data in the network.
Blockchain, much more than an immutable database
Although it is a useful result of the system, the value is not limited to an immutable place to store data.
We are forming the infrastructure which is the basis of a new global network of data exchange leveraging the power of smart contracts and our blockchain network.
Most data itself is created, distributed, received, and read from your own Type-2 (enterprise) node (including many applications) giving you full control over your data as opposed to sending it to other storage nodes not hosted by yourself. This is important for privacy aspects yet keeping true to full decentralization and control. You host the node, the applications and the APIs.
Multi node type network
Solving two design flaws integral to other public networks:
Limited transactions and data distribution capabilities
Given the vast amount of data present in a complex global supply chain, it’s essential the network is able to distribute the data in a timely manner amongst stakeholders.
Data privacy control
Many cryptocurrency transactions don’t need privacy, and many blockchain networks aren’t designed for privacy. However, a lot of company data is proprietary. Our network allows for immutability, decentralization, and trust, while allowing companies to keep proprietary data to themselves.
The Type-1 node
Creates new blocks with transactions and writes the same to the Unova blockchain.
Safety and reliability are probably the most important characteristics of any company active in the food industry. Therefore, having efficient mechanisms of traceability in place will become a significant competitive differentiator as it signals trustworthiness towards customers and allows management to have a profound understanding of their own product.Kristof LommersPhD Student Oxford
UNOVA offers a novel solution to a centuries-old problem: how to demonstrate the quality of your goods. Especially in the food industry, this challenge has remained difficult and burdensome. Until now.Viktor SmitsConsultant Sia Partners
