Ontology partners with BlockBank

Ontology in the Media
Centralized data management is outdated and vulnerable to hacking, says Li Jun, founder of Ontology. Here is an excerpt from his recent article published on Forkast:
Traditionally, different sectors have used paper or centralized spreadsheets on internal computers to house information and data sets. However, as we have seen, increasingly sophisticated technology has led to a higher risk of threats to private information, especially when housed on centralized systems. Moving forward, it is essential that businesses and individuals invest in decentralized solutions to store and manage data. On a macro scale, end-to-end technology run on blockchain enables private information to be shared securely, while users remain in full control of their data. From an individual perspective, investment in decentralized digital identity solutions can help users take back control of how and when their data is shared, especially when the current systems are not taking adequate precautions to protect their privacy.
On June 21st, Alipay released two limited-edition NFT skins, which sold out in minutes. NFT are growing in popularity because they allow real-world assets that to be tokenized and quantified. At the same time, NFTs are highly liquid, which makes NFTs easy to purchase and transfer.
On the third anniversary of Ontology’s MainNet, we launched 10,000 limited edition NFTs. This follows the launch of other Ontology-based NFTs such as HyperDragons, Ontology 2.0 Medals, and Citizen NFTs. Ontology is also providing DID solutions to the music NFT platform, ROCKI. In the future, we will continue to explore the opportunities to combine NFTs with DeFi as well as more traditional industries.
