What is PlatON 2.0

Vision

Combining blockchain and privacy-preserving computation technologies, PlatON is building a decentralized and collaborative AI network and global brain to drive the democratization of AI for safe artificial general intelligence.

  • To build the infrastructure needed for autonomous AI agents and their collaboration, to facilitate the emergence and evolution of advanced AI, and to explore the path to general AI.
  • Make the power of AI available to anyone through our decentralized network and open-source software tools to make AI technology better for the masses.

The overall goal is achieved in three phases.

  • Decentralized privacy-preserving computation network, establishing a decentralized data sharing and…


Abstract

In just the past 10 years society has witnessed the transition of analog to digital, and we are fast forward to a fully digital life. However, the data utilization rate is very low due to the high centralization of artificial intelligence, coupled with data abuse and privacy leakage. The value of data urgently needs to be intellectualized in order to be deposited and utilized, hence the growing call for a next-generation intelligent network known as web 3.0. PlatON brings blockchain, AI and privacy-preserving computation together to create a decentralized collaborative privacy-preserving AI network that takes data utilization to a new…


The PlatON PIP-3 proposal was passed on 30 August 2021 at 14:50. Since the launch of the PIP-3 proposal ballot, the proposal finally received 179 yes votes and 0 no votes, representing 86.05% of the votes in favour of the upgrade, and we would like to thank all our node partners who participated in the ballot!

The proposal focuses on upgrading PlatON’s underlying node network to improve the quality of network services. After the upgrade, the PlatON network will operate with version 1.1.0.

If you have not done the voting operation, please follow the operation manual to perform the version…


This article illustrates a P2P connection scheme under the group consensus. This design aims at the current evolution of the Giskard protocol into a group consensus. This issue is the first part.

Background

Driven by scaling, a new consensus mechanism called “group consensus” is introduced. Under this mechanism, all consensus nodes are divided into multiple groups, and then reach a consensus between groups after interaction within the group. Due to the huge number of consensus nodes after scaling, the original direct connection of all consensus nodes is no longer applicable. …


PlatON, initiated and driven by the LatticeX Foundation, is a next-generation Internet infrastructure protocol based on the fundamental properties of blockchain and supported by the privacy-preserving computation network. “Computing interoperability” is its core feature. By building a computing system assembled by Verifiable Computation, Secure Multi-Party Computation, Zero-Knowledge Proof, Homomorphic Encryption and other cryptographic algorithms and blockchain technology, PlatON provides a public infrastructure in open source architecture for global artificial intelligence, distributed application developers, data providers and various organizations, communities and individuals with computing needs.

Technical Progress

  • The bottom-layer PlatON version 1.1.0 has been developed and tested, and it is planned to upgrade…

PlatON, the privacy-preserving AI network today announced the new partnership established with Despace, the multi-chain DeFi and NFT protocol powered by DeChain blockchain.

As an industry-leading DeFi and NFT protocol, Despace has a rather deep technology background. Being the most comprehensive DeFi aggregator, it allows users to interact with several DeFi protocols from a single web-interface, and mine DES coins when executing each DeFi and NFT transaction. With Despace’s competitive marketing influence, PlatON could gain a deeper knowledge and coverage into the DeFi and NFT market, which is helpful to build a more thriving and sustainable ecosystem.

The technology-driven team…


Zero-Knowledge Proof (ZKP), was proposed by S. Goldwasser, S. Micali, and C. Rackoff in the early 1980s. It refers to the ability of a prover to convince a verifier that an assertion is correct without providing any useful information to the verifier.

Zero-knowledge proofs are now widely used in reality, especially in authentication protocols and digital signatures. This article will be divided into two parts to analyze the application of zero-knowledge proof technology in the blockchain.

Introduction to ZKP

Zero-knowledge proof (ZKP) is an important part of modern cryptography, which refers to the ability of a prover to convince a verifier that an…


PlatON, the privacy-preserving AI network, is officially launching its first online hackathon on DoraHacks’ open source developer platform — Hackerlink on July 21, 2021. The event is designed to inspiring developers’ sparks, creating new value, demonstrating the power of technological advancement, as well as promoting more DApps development on PlatON and Alaya,building a thriving ecosystem.

As PlatON’s pioneer network and testing field, Alaya will take the lead in testing all inspirations and attempts to verify the completeness of the basic functions of the network. This Hackathon, with bounty prizes offered by PlatON, will present a prize pool of $170,000 to…


Since the launch of the AIP-17 proposal, the support rate has exceeded 92% as of today, and the proposal has now been approved with a high number of votes, with an expected effective date of August 2, 2021.

The proposal focuses on the Alaya network optimization upgrade to version 0.16.0 to improve the quality of network services.

Optimization features

  1. The node process name is modified from the original [platon] to [alaya], and the parameter — [alaya] no longer needs to be specified in the start command.
  2. Optimize the transaction propagation policy, for nodes that do not broadcast transactions directly, send the transaction…
