About TrustNote

TrustNote is a distributed ledger technology and its development platform for the tokenised economy. TrustNote combines the Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) ledger structure and Proof of Work (PoW) together to build a more scalable and more secured distributed ledger system. TrustNote supports mining and Internet of Things. TrustNote’s main chain was launched since 18th January 2018.

Believing in the key to freedom of innovation in the digital age is decentralisation and being frustrated with today’s blockchains who have not embraced true decentralisation, prohibiting the innovators and future thinkers from creating the change they want to see, TrustNote is designed to make development easy, fast and scalable, and bring trust to an untrusting environment for everyone on every device at a low cost.

In contrast to many public ledgers in the industry who doing lots of marketing without actually offering an already launched (working) main net, TrustNote insists on not doing marketing until the launch of the main net and the wallet. TrustNote adheres to Satoshi Nakamoto styled, truly decentralised security concept, and insists on Proof of Work as the most reliable consensus algorithm available today. TrustNote’s aim is to create a truly fast, scalable, and developer friendly blockchain.

Based on verifiable, declarative smart contracts and TrustNote’s underlying technology, the iToken smart token platform, the TRC20 protocol specification and the mores to come, allowing users to create and publish tokens freely and simple without having to write complex smart contract codes.

TrustNote has a scalable wallet that provides security and rich application interfaces for tokenised applications, blockchain games and social applications.

On TrustNote, everyone can participate, all things can be tokenised, and transactions can be conducted on a truly decentralised network. In this way, everyone can have their own digital assets and gain corresponding rewards through value exchange, allowing new innovative ideas to run smoothly and flourish on the blockchain, making the use of blockchain a lifestyle.

TrustNote believes that to complete a great mission must have a healthy and energetic talent environment. TrustNote has always been committed to building the home of the best talents, warmly welcomes the best talents to actively participate, and jointly promote the development of the TrustNote open source community, and build a new world of the tokenised economy!
