CEX.IO to list ONT and ONG coins

, August 13, 2019

We’re glad to announce the upcoming listing of two new coins — ONT and ONG. Both coins are part of the Ontology project, a distributed trust collaboration platform and a public blockchain protocol with high performance, allowing businesses with no knowledge of blockchain technology to benefit from it.

About Ontology

Ontology is a blockchain project that claims to overcome the current issues in trust networks by creating a distributed trust system. Its architecture integrates several trust types in a protocol with multiple databases and blockchains. Ontology uses a special consensus mechanism called VBFT, comprising three different models: Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT), Proof-of-Stake (PoS), and Verifiable Random Function (VRF). The system aims to benefit many spheres, including finance, payments, insurance, IoT, media, software development, medicine, and government. 

Apps that can be built using Ontology include distributed data exchanges, multi-source identity systems for people and objects, collaborative systems, community management systems, content generation, and trade modules, reputation systems, and inclusive financial services.

The Ontology team consists of over 200 core members in Asia, Europe, and North America. They have in-depth expertise in product management, distributed technologies, app development, and traditional finance. Besides that, the project has won the support of over 2 million community members and over 900 technical contributors.

ONG and ONT coins

The Ontology ecosystem has created a dual token model consisting of ONG and ONT cryptocurrencies, each of which serves a specific purpose. ONG is a utility token used for on-chain services, while ONT is a coin used for staking in consensus. ONT allows users to get passive income by participating in staking. 

Restrictions

ONG and ONT will be available for all verified users except for residents of the United States.

Mark your calendars

We’ll extend the trading instruments on CEX.IO with ONG and ONT coins on August 15, after 12 PM GMT. We recommend you save this date and learn more about Ontology in advance.
