👩🏻‍💻 Architecture Overview

Execution and Data Layer

At the foundational level, the network is built upon the Internet protocol, encompassing an execution and data layer. This layer is responsible for storing both private (secured via zero-knowledge architecture) and public data. The network's infrastructure operators cannot access private data, ensuring confidentiality for individuals and DAOs. The consensus engine within this layer acts as a unifying source of truth in the peer-to-peer network, facilitating data consistency and integral services such as peer-to-peer communication, identity verification, and recovery.

Identity Layer

The identity layer operates as an intermediary between the execution applications and the core services. It is pivotal in representing the identities of individuals and DAOs within the system.

Governance Layer

The governance layer provides mechanisms for policy and ecosystem configuration decision-making. It is a versatile platform where various economic, governance, and system tools can be configured and upgraded. This adaptability makes Tonomy suitable for diverse applications in government, enterprise, public communities, and large-scale community environments.

Core Applications

The ecosystem provides standardised core applications to facilitate the formation and operation of citizen and DAO interactions. These applications include Tonomy ID, DAO, Gov, Pay, and Developer Console. They offer a mainstream-ready interface, enabling no-code, Web2-like interactions within the ecosystem and other applications.

DAO-Managed Applications

DAOs can create and manage their applications within the marketplace. This feature caters to Web2 and Web3 applications, encompassing various domains like decentralised finance, gaming, social networking, and e-commerce.

Application Layer

Individuals interact within the ecosystem primarily through applications. These applications provide a user interface that allows safe and trustless interaction, shielding users from the technical complexities of the underlying layers.
