TOP Network aims to build a distributed communication network that provides messaging, calling, Proxy, streaming, CDN, IoT data sharing, storage and other decentralized communication services. Built upon standard P2P communication and storage protocols, TOP breaks the traditional client-server model and allows every participant with idle bandwidth as well as storage capacity in the network to become a server and offer relevant services to users.
TOP Network is also a high-performance DAG-based blockchain platform that is able to support any DApps.
Core features of TOP Network include:
1) Unique three layer structure, a distributed ledger with a main chain, multiple service chains and off-chain ledger;
2) Utilize a two layer lattice DAG structure (unite lattice, block lattice) to store and process data that scales;
3) Two layer sharding, a Zone and a Shard structure that can solve congestion problems raised by cross-shard communications;
4) Multiple layer consensus network comprising of Edge Network, Routing Network and Core Network;
5) Three communication Apps developed by TOP team—Dingtone, CoverMe and SkyVPN will move to TOP Chain once the TOP mainnet launches, this will help bring 60 million users to TOP ecosystem.
