SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--XYO Network, the technology bringing blockchain to the real world, today announced the release of the publicly available beta version of the XYO Network app for Android. The XYO Network app allows personal devices, including smartphones and tablets, to function as Bridges and Sentinels, two key components in the recently announced end-to-end Testnet iteration of the XYO Network.
The new app will be a critical tool in the overall XYO Network. Along with other tools, the app will be the main method of deriving and compiling location data from the key components in the XYO Network, specifically, the following:
Sentinels - Sentinels are heuristic witnesses which observe heuristics and validate the certainty and accuracy of the heuristic by producing temporal ledgers. Bridges - Bridges are heuristic transcribers which securely relay heuristic ledgers from Sentinels to Diviners. Archivists - Archivists store heuristics in a decentralized form with the goal of having all historical ledgers stored, yet without that requirement. Archivists also index ledgers so they can return a string of ledger data if needed. Diviners - Diviners answer queries by analyzing historical data stored by the XYO Network. Unlike Sentinels and Bridges, Diviners use Proof of Work to add answers to the blockchain.
“We’ve been beta testing the XYO Network app internally for some weeks, and now it’s time to share it with our community for their input,” said Justin Fortier, Head of Consumer Products with XYO Network. “Our goal with the public beta is largely to test the accuracy of our assumptions, projections and algorithms at scale, before we take the Mainnet live. It will also give us the opportunity to see how the four i...
