A storm has hit the investment market which we are not going to recover from. Crypto investment is that storm. With strict capital controls in place by most countries to control the flow of money and charge high taxes, cryptocurrency gained usage in circumventing capital controls and taxes, leading to an increase in demand. Cryptocurrency has been able to present an easy to use digital alternative to fiat currencies. Offering frictionless transactions and inflation control, investors have been prudent enough to add these currencies in their diversified portfolios as an asset, as the size of the market does not represent a systemic risk. Cryptocurrency employs the use of cryptography that assures high-security processes and verifies transactions personal to each user. Hence, counterfeiting and anonymous transactions are impossible to achieve.
While this revolution is gaining wide acceptance, Online.io platform which aims at revolutionizing the browsing experience by making it faster, ad free, more reliable, secure and non-trackable, thus marking a groundbreaking change of the Internet has arrived.
Now that I have your attention, let’s get right to it.
What exactly is ONLINE?
Online.io is a decentralized platform and is a system that will change users' internet habits. Online.io, which does not allow ads that permanently infringe on their privacy for people to collect data, malicious code, and malicious software placed on websites, will bring a new breath to the built-in sector.
The Internet is full of people and organizations that want to put malware on your computer or phone. They impose ads on users, leak bad software onto their computers, and make sure that users visit their sites, share them, as well as daily activity information. You will then use this information to view advertisements and advertisements over the areas of your interest. They will show you these ads with your footprint and will try to sell you on this page.
People are constantly being bombarded with advertisements, annoying pop-ups, video ads for a few seconds during the stream, or just too many sparkling banners. There are plenty of spam and illegal software that take control of user systems. Governments, ISPs, and large websites always follow your footprint. Web calls visited places, which websites are opened, etc. , and every day with greater power, your information enters unauthorized.
The ultimate goal is to reinvent the World Wide Web experience by placing people’s privacy as our top priority, thus offering a more secure, non-trackable, without malware and ad free Internet.
Government agencies and big Internet companies that shall remain unnamed thrive on tracking your every move! Only together we can put a STOP to this!
Nowadays websites are full of ads that try to sell you something they think you need by creating an unfriendly and irritating browsing experience. Also, lots of them have hidden malware, scammy ads or mining scripts.
Online.io platform aims at making a groundbreaking change of the Internet, by revolutionizing the browsing experience and making it faster, non-trackable, without malware and ad free.
Website operators gain a significant amount of revenues from ads, which can be changed by implementing our solution based on the highly scalable, transparent and fully accountable Blockchain technology, which will ensure they get fair remuneration based on the number of visitors, time spent on their pages and the interaction with the site, creating a more suitable environment for quality, as opposed to spammy cash driven webpages.
A new website rating system will be developed for the community and you as part of this community will decide on the quality of the websites you visit. This will lower the time and stress spent on click bait pages and you’ll have more time for valuable pages.
Online Security from Blockchain Technology
Online.io rediscovers the internet experience by ensuring that user privacy has the highest priority. The platform provides its users with a safe and seamless way to experience malicious software and an ad-free internet experience. Online.io deals with three methods with the following methods:
Bypassing annoying ads - to provide an improved online experience for the user. Web Pages are intended to load faster without the unnecessary clutter that consumes bandwidth.
Malicious software and every file downloaded via the adware - platform are not harmful to the clean and user systems. But online.io provides selective-permeability by applying a filter system to them.
Advanced protection from online monitoring - provides safer and worry-free scanning. Big Brother and Big Data organizations can not track and collect data from users.
In addition, the platform will also run a voting system where users will score based on their experience with the websites visited.
The Online.io ecosystem allows searching information, buying, and surfing the Internet securely. Each ad and website get the rating from users, the access to personal data is protected by the blockchain technology. The platform is built on 5 components.
The Main Components of The System
There are extensions for different browsers for PCs, smartphones, and tablets such as Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Safari, which are embedded into the platform. Online.io will suit every user no matter what OS he uses.
You can shop online with cryptocurrencies: it’s fast, safe, and anonymous. The mobile app of Online.io has an embedded wallet, while the desktop version has a calculation app compatible with Linux, Windows, and MacOS.
The app works as a digital wallet, a blocker of ads, hacking scripts and phishing sites. All in one, just open the app!
A trading platform includes decades of authorized sites connected to the Online.io system: it guarantees safe shopping with protection against spam, stealing funds from users' credit cards.
The platform includes an open API, with the help of which creators of third-party sites can connect Online.io to their resources, accept payments in cryptocurrencies, and attract new clients through the platform.
At this moment, the web users are paying to browse the internet, either through subscriptions or through less transparent fees, such as digital advertising. In our envisaged environment the web users will enjoy an ad free Internet, while the web operators will still benefit from financial rewards.
In today's interconnected society, companies adopted less transparent practices of online tracking and behavioral profiling. Very sensitive information, such as financial and health records are often collected, thus raising a myriad of privacy concerns. Our solution incorporates a tracking script blocker that will severely disrupt the ability to continue tracking in real-time the user's activity.
The massive expansion of the Internet and the high degree of connectivity lead to a similar or even more dramatic rise in cyber-attacks aiming at gathering sensitive and confidential information. One of the most prominent way of carrying a cyber-attack is through the infected websites that usually contain hidden malware scripts. Our solution will protect the end users using a custom anti-malware and ad blocking script that will safeguard their personal data and enhance their security.
People are aware that online ads are slowing down their browsing speed, hence an increasing number of users are using ad blockers to navigate the internet faster. Through our solution, end users will benefit from the effects as using an ad blocker, while also enjoying a more secure and private experience due to the other features. Furthermore, the web operators will still be able to monetize their websites' content.
Our solution comes with extensions for all the major desktop and mobile browsers and includes the ad blocker, tracking script blocker, anti malware and the web wallet. On top, we will integrate a voting system through which will help curate the internet.
Our mobile applications will function as a wallet, ad blocker, tracking script blocker and anti malware. The mobile apps will also contain a performance and battery time enhancer that will further improve the browsing experience.
Our solution uses standard ERC20 tokens from the Ethereum platform which guarantees full transparency and accountability, meaning all transactions will be visible on the public BlockChain.
Our wallets will work on all major operating systems and browsers. Mobile phones and tablets will have one app for wallet, ad blocker, tracking script, anti malware and desktop operating system will also have dedicated app wallets.
Merchants will be able to accept crypto payments through our system by using our API or premade modules for most popular ecommerce software solutions like shopify, prestashop, opencart, magento and others.
Our website will have a full section dedicated to finding all the places where you can buy using a in-house developed merchant system. Also, the marketplace will contain detailed information regarding how other merchants can integrate our merchant system. Information regarding international group of partners will also be available.
How Does Online.io Work?
The system of adaptive Ethereum smart contracts, which are concluded by ordinary users, owners of online-platforms, and ad services is in the basis of the platform. Creators are planning to change the up-to-date Internet by solving 4 main problems.
The Logic of Online.io Working
Personal data of users are stored in encrypted form in the Online.io blockchain. Such an approach excludes the access of fraudsters, government, and other interested persons.
Each site working with Online.io receives the rating. If the internet community complains ads, spamming, or poor service, the rating of a site will be downgraded or excluded from the system. This logic protects creators of high-quality content, makes annoying ads ineffective.
The materials published on the websites taking part in Online.io are available without subscription and contact information and are completely free of charge. Such politics makes hackers attack ineffective, excludes spamming. Users get “clean” Internet without useless information.
Owners of websites get tokens for the high rating, that’s why the high-quality administration and useful information to become profitable. Users are paid for visiting each site and setting the rating. Received tokens can be exchanged on any cryptocurrency or spent on shopping in Online.io itself.
When it comes to online.io coin, There are 3 type of coins:
Online Ethereum token (OIO) - OIO Tokens are the key element in the ecosystem. The web operators will be required to stake OIO Tokens in order to use their technology and mine ICE tokens. The purpose of the OIO tokens is to bootstrap the development of Online.io platform. The Online tokens (OIO) are generated once and sold at the Token Generation Event. Out of the maximum number of tokens generated, 15% of the OIO will be reserved for 1 year by the company and will not be available for sale during that time. After the Token Generation Event the OIO tokens will be available on various exchanges.
ICE Ethereum token (ICE) - The purpose of the ICE coin is to be used for micropayments and daily use
Trust token (TST) - Exists only within the private Blockchain. It is used for stimulating users to rank websites and for ranking gamification.
5% of OIO tokens will be reserved for partner advisers
10% of OIO tokens will be allocated for marketing & loyalty purposes
15% of total OIO tokens will be reserved for the company
70% will be distributed to the OIO community
