Ontology is a blockchain/distributed ledger network which combines a distributed identity system, distributed data exchange, distributed data collaboration, distributed procedure protocols, distributed communities, distributed attestation, and various industry-specific modules. Together this builds the infrastructure for a peer-to-peer trust network which is cross-chain, cross-system, cross-industry, cross-application, and cross-device.

I TRUST SYSTEMS AND ONTOLOGY NETWORK The Three Dimensions of Trust Trust is a key component in human organization and social collaboration. Trust has become the core requirement of social and economic partnership that has been built up through technology, law, and community throughout history. 1

PART I. TRUST SYSTEMS AND ONTOLOGY Trust through Technology: Trust through Legal Systems: Trust through Communities: Building trust through technology is Trust in legal systems is the oldest Trusting those close to us can be the seen as a promising area in today's and the most basic trust mechanism, most natural form of trust.

Building a network which integrates the fragmented industry is needed to build a true and complete trust system. 3

PART I. TRUST SYSTEMS AND ONTOLOGY Ontology's Ethos Ontology has architected a distributed trust system. It incorporates multiple trust types in an integrated protocol system with various blockchains and databases. Multi- source identities and multi-source data exchange protocols have been implemented into the network, building a distributed trust system that is cross-chain, cross-industry, cross-system, cross-application, and cross-device. Ontology aims to develop its trust ecosystem through partnerships to provide distributed services including distributed communities, data verification, data exchange, and credit across industries. 4

PART I. TRUST SYSTEMS AND ONTOLOGY Vision and Structure Ontology’s Trust Network is a protocol network built with multiple blockchains and systems to support use with all business types. In order to meet the needs of different industries, the flexible design structure is modularized, pluggable, and easily expandable. Ontology applies blockchain technology to all business types, providing blockchains, smart contracts, distributed verification management, data exchange, and other protocols and APIs. Users can easily develop distributed services through Ontology without having previous knowledge of distributed networks. An integrated and diverse distributed trust network and the tool for building a trust ecosystem 5

PART II. ONTOLOGY TRUST NETWORK Decentralized Identity Verification and Multi-Factor Authentication A decentralized and multi-factor identity verification system that assures data privacy is core to building a trust network. Such a system can provide identity verification systems for individuals, organizations, and physical objects.

Delivering a Decentralized Trust System In Ontology a decentralized trust system can be implemented alongside traditional trust systems. This includes: Community Trust Statement Community trust is an effective system in which A statement is the medium of community trust. In communities and individuals play an active role in identity Ontology a statement is a confirmation passed from verification. one entity to another; only one statement is needed to instantly verify information. Trust Anchor Trust Transfer A trust anchor is an entity that has been entrusted to conduct identity verification. The higher the trust in the Trust transfer is conducted by submitting information trust anchor, the higher the trust in the network. required and receiving a statement. This could be an individual submitting their own identity information or using previously submitted information to form a portfolio of multiple identity certifications. 10

PART II. ONTOLOGY TRUST NETWORK Distributed Ledger Technology Ontology’s storage system works on a distributed ledger. The key feature of the completely decentralized, tamper-proof ledger is that trust is shared amongst multiple parties through the use of smart contracts, distributed networks, distributed storage, distributed authority, distributed security, and a variety of modules. Entity Registration and Authorization Procedure Protocols Data Attestation An identity registration and Ontology’s procedure protocols are The distributed ledger system does not authorization system can be built with carried out with distributed ledger only store data but also records its use.

III ONTOLOGY'S ECO SYSTEM AND AP P LIC AB LE S C ENARIOS Ontology helps its partners improve their systems by integrating them into the blockchain infrastructure and designing comprehensive applications that come with full technical support. This part will introduce some of the applications that can be built onto the network. 15

PART III: ONTOLOGY'S ECOSYSTEM AND APPLICABLE SCENARIOS Multi-Source Identity System for People Users can collect and manage their own identity data from various sources including public institutions, banks, businesses, family, colleagues, and friends. What do I want? Faith, knowledge, interest, viewpoint What skills do I have? What have I experienced? Language, driving, profession Education, work, travel What unique characteristics do I have? What do I own? Fingerprints, height, weight, DNA Assets, debt, property ONTOLOGY NETWORK Multi-Source Identity Verification School Family Classmates Friends Government Bank Company Partners NGOs Multi-Source Identity Authentication Data Tracking Multi-source identity authentication is the verification All authentications on Ontology are performed with process of an identity by more than one source to give it a signatures, which cannot be forged or repudiated. more secure and trustworthy certification. Meanwhile, to assure a secure authentication system, authenticators themselves can be subject to review if their Comprehensive Personal Profile authority or trustworthiness is questioned. A comprehensive personal profile describes the state in which an individual has built up an identity with data from multiple sources relevant to them. 16

PART III: ONTOLOGY'S ECOSYSTEM AND APPLICABLE SCENARIOS Multi-Source Identity System for Objects In Ontology you can register digital identities of physical objects into the distributed network under the supervision of the product owners and/or producers. Each object has its own API and can interact with other digital identity holders. Relationship with People Ownership, right of use, manufacturing, sale, transport Relationship with Other Goods Relationship with Money Manufacturing, assembling, storage, Price, rent compatibility, consumption Tangible Characteristics Location, date, properties ONTOLOGY NETWORK Object Authentication Cycle Object Data Recording and Authentication Objects can be tracked throughout their life cycle Ontology can fully record and authenticate with multi-factor authentication by: object data including ownership, circulation, user behavior, and other relevant information.

User online behavior data is often stored by service providers for analysis and trade. Ontology provides a data exchange system in which all data (with consent of the owner) can be discovered and traded to the owner's benefit whilst meeting individual privacy requirements. By nature of blockchain and smart contracts, all records on Ontology are open, transparent, trackable, and tamper-proof. This technology can be applied to areas including signing certificates, joint credit, distributed collaborative computing, and AI training data. 18

PART III: ONTOLOGY'S ECOSYSTEM AND APPLICABLE SCENARIOS Distributed Collaborative Systems Distributed collaborative systems in Ontology help build up the trust network. See a doctor Send electronic prescription and medical history Doctor Patient Send credentials Purchase medicine Register to identity Pass inspection and and service interface send medicine Ont ID Register to identity and service interface Inquire doctor and hospital service interface Check hospital's credentials Hospital Pharmacy An example of distributed collaborative systems in medicine: When doctors, hospitals, and patients register their identities onto the blockchain, the blockchain fills in the trust gap between the pharmacy and patient with record of the medicine's key information. The pharmaceutical enterprise then sells the prescribed medicine to the patient after verification of the doctor and hospital's credentials. Authorization Records Activity Records Evaluation Modifiable authorities of each All activity is recorded to ensure A multi-party confirmation and participant are recorded and confirmed transparency of participant identity, endorsement mechanism allows for by all relevant parties. activity, and outcomes. evaluation of collaborative entities. 19

PART III: ONTOLOGY'S ECOSYSTEM AND APPLICABLE SCENARIOS Distributed Equity Management Today's economic system contains a range of equity management models, though due to factors such as low transparency and information asymmetry these projects lack credible trust mechanisms. Equity management is also facing obstacles regarding project assessment, risk warnings, information disclosure, equity circulation, and authority entrustment. In light of this Ontology has built a trustworthy distributed equity management system. ONTOLOGY NETWORK Trustor Investor Rights entrust Equity circulation Decision making Trustee/ Company, Investor Investor Investor Investor Investor organization or project Providing project information/ risk warnings Ont ID Upstream and Cooperative Media Regulatory downstream organizations agencies enterprises Example in Investment Management: Distributed Interests Configuration Ontology has the functions to: Interests configurations are transparent to all parties and recorded onto the blockchain.
