Ontology Weekly Report (November 9–15, 2021)
Recently, Ontology founder Li Jun was interviewed by MarTech Series. He shared his views on the future development of Web3 and discussed the development of Ontology ecosystem. Since its establishment, Ontology’s decentralized identity protocol has been adopted by many companies around the world. In the future, we expect more and more users to adopt decentralized identity solutions to manage their digital identities Ontology plans to introduce more innovative products in this regard to meet the needs of more users.

- 1,843 new members joined our global community this week. The active community has attracted a large number of new members to join us.
- Ontology published the next couple of interviews in its Harbinger Series. Andrey Sher from our Russian community said that Ontology has made progress in the Web3 field and created a unique decentralized identity solution. He hopes to help more community members learn about privacy protection through Ontology.
- We held our weekly Discord Community Call, led by Humpty Calderon, our Head of Community. He focused on “Let NFT return to the public.”; with the emergence of more and more DeFi+NFT projects, Ontology’s DID solution and OScore provide them with a solution for identity verification. Through on-chain and off-chain data, users will have accurate identity and reputation information to trade NFTs with each other.
- We held our DeID Summit: Humpty Calderon, our Head of Community, invited Charles Wayn, co-founder of Project Galaxy, to discuss “NFTs as a service infrastructure”. Charles said: Project Galaxy is providing services related to on-chain certificates (NFTs) for communities and enterprises. These certificates (NFTs) contain a lot of user data and provide users with credibility in the network.
- We held our Telegram weekly Community Call, led by Astro, an Ontology Harbinger from our Asian community. He discussed with community members about Ontology’s upcoming 4th anniversary NFT event; community members provided many novel ideas for this program.
- As always, we’re active on Twitter and Telegram where you can keep up with our latest developments and community updates.
Ontology in the Media
Researchers around the world are working to create alternatives to our existing digital identities through the decentralized web, or Web 3.0. These alternatives use new protocols that remove the need for intermediaries during transactions, while further democratizing the web and bringing value back to creators and participants. The goal is to enable internet users to verify their credentials without the dependence of intermediaries while managing their own identities. This will create a fair, secure, fast, and scalable new internet with a stronger focus on security and privacy.
With Ontology’s ONT ID and OScore technologies, users can manage decentralized digital identities and reputation scores. ONT ID is Ontology’s decentralized identity framework that enables users to control their data and decide whether a third-party can access a particular piece of information about them. It protects user privacy and ensures data security, enabling trusted collaboration. Ontology uses technical means to provide trust guarantees between unfamiliar users, combines a decentralized credit system with traditional finance, has created a credit-based cross-chain decentralized asset management platform (Wing Finance), and realizes Web 3.0 peer-to-peer transactions and disintermediation.
