Tonomy Gov OS "Tonomy" is a software suite that can deploy digital governance on any ecosystem. Tonomy does this by including critical out-of-the-box components necessary for digital governance. These enable the management of identity, organisations and institutions including governance systems and software applications. The modular approach can create various and upgradeable models for the governance of ecosystems of trust, such as democratic, proof of stake, representative, direct or hybrid models.

Tonomy heralds a paradigm shift in digital governance architectures, meticulously engineered to instil trust across a spectrum of ecosystems, inclusive of governmental, enterprise, industry, and communal governance domains. This pioneering system adeptly orchestrates governance processes within intricate multi-stakeholder ecosystems, addressing sectors ranging from social welfare and healthcare to large-scale corporate entities, infrastructural initiatives, national territories, artificial intelligence frameworks, cryptocurrency mechanisms, and comprehensive global environmental stewardship.

Central to Tonomy is a digital ecosystem, distinct in its ability to foster autonomous user engagement, team collaboration, and the development of revolutionary applications devoid of reliance on centralised third-party services or data repositories.

At the core of its operational model, Tonomy encompasses five pivotal actors: individuals with unique identities, decentralised autonomous organisations (DAOs) constituting multiparty entities, a specialised DAO for ecosystem governance, applications providing standard functionalities, and network infrastructure services, including blockchain nodes.

The network employs a diverse array of scalable, low/no trust technologies to construct a decentralised service network, powering a comprehensive application ecosystem. This infrastructure facilitates a suite of standardized, user-centric applications, encapsulating:

  • Tonomy ID: A self-sovereign identity, data and web3 wallet facilitating single sign-on across Web2 & Web3 applications, whilst also enabling digital eiDAS compliant signatures, sharing of W3C Verifiable Credentials & sovereign data storage.

  • Tonomy DAO: A platform enabling collaborative formation & democratic administration of new legal entities for joint management of apps, data, funds, policies and much more.

  • Tonomy GOV: A platform for sustainable ecosystem governance encompassing policy management, network infrastructure, operations, arbitration, funds management.

  • Tonomy PAY: A tool for seamless financial management, micropayments & connection of different Web2 & Web3 payment rails, incorporating advanced features such as subscription models, AML adherence and threshold settings.

  • Tonomy DEV: A no-code platform for managing network infrastructure, including applications, validator nodes, and servers, smart contract creation, user management & much more powered by Artificial Intelligence

Tonomy’s architecture is underpinned by a modular software approach, offering high configurability to meet diverse requirements of complex ecosystems, whilst avoiding the need for L2 networks and rollups which constitute a series of usability and security risks. This is achieved through:

  • A flexible identity management system employing multi-key technologies and Self-Sovereign Identity principles for private, secure, and interoperable identities.

  • A modular governance system integrating various consensus algorithms and governance models, including traditional direct and representative democracy, alongside innovative stake-based and liquid democracy systems.

  • A versatile economic system enabling advanced resource allocation configurations, denial of service security methods, and currency token management tools.

Beneath its interface, the network integrates a multitude of system services to deliver a unique user experience in a decentralised and secure manner. This is facilitated by a multilayer system comprising:

  • A scalable blockchain network acting as the core execution layer for critical ecosystem components such as identity, governance, and economics, utilising an advanced aBFT consensus algorithm capable of handling substantial transaction volumes.

  • Support services enabling peer-to-peer communication, identity verification, secure data and identity recovery, all leveraging decentralised Identifiers (DIDs).

Tonomy’s zero-knowledge architecture for identities and DAOs obviates the need for trust or storage of personal information, addressing significant cybersecurity risks and data compliance challenges inherent in current internet architectures. The system's identity and key management framework and a design-driven approach enhance user accessibility and usability.

Advanced cryptographic techniques, such as zero-knowledge proofs, are employed for selective data disclosure and on-chain proofs, fostering provable and private systems and facilitating enterprise adoption by ensuring compliance with data privacy regulations such as GDPR.

Integrating artificial intelligence within DAO and ecosystem governance processes provides concise summaries of technical proposals and discussions, aiding in managing new proposals from diverse perspectives in an opt-in ethical way.

User safety within the ecosystem is enhanced through features like DAO and identity anonymised accountability, transparent governance, and an arbitration system that allows for the issuance of warrants under specific conditions for governance and administrative functions.

Tonomy offers developers an engaging experience through the no-code network infrastructure developer console, enabling easy onboarding, user retention, and efficient management of applications and network infrastructure.

Cryptocurrency comparison

Tonomy facilitates the creation of decentralised, public currencies. Unlike Ethereum and most cryptocurrencies, Tonomy provides out-of-the-box no-code tools for autonomous governance and administration of cryptocurrency operations, such as developer grants, improvement proposals, and policy and standard updates. Its mainstream-ready application suite provides an immediate web2-like experience for using currencies as well as governance and operation without compromising on web3 fundamentals like autonomy and decentralisation.

State-nation comparison

When applied to state-nation governance, Tonomy enables the digital foundation for sovereign-state institutions, including ministries and sub-departments, to manage legislative, judicial, and executive functions. This approach contrasts with existing state-nation systems by providing a digital platform that allows for the rapid adaptation and expansion of policies and governance structures, responding more effectively to citizens' needs. The advanced cryptography and distributed network systems enable state nations to manage their cyber security needs without worries of citizen fraud, data breaches or foreign digital attacks.
