What is Elastos?

Elastos is dedicated to creating a brand-new virtual digital smart economic zone based on the traditional basis of the Internet. The design philosophy of elastos originated from Chen Rong, the former senior software engineer at Microsoft. He strived to develop the world’s first Internet Operating System in 2000, and put forward the basic idea that there is “no need for computation if online and no need to be online if computing .” It was subsequently developed as an open-source operating system, with its source code reaching 10 million lines (github.com/elastos). In 2017, the blockchain technology was integrated into elastos, enabling the development of the Smart Web.

The Smart Web can be explained by its four pillars:

  • Blockchain & Smart Contract. A blockchain enables the establishment of trust on the operating system.
  • Elastos Carrier. The elastos Carrier is a completely decentralized P2P network platform. It is very important infrastructure, and supports elastos for DApp development and operation.
  • Elastos Runtime. The elastos Runtime runs on top of its customer’s device, ensuring a reliable runtime environment. Developers will be able to build an elastos DApp with a digital currency broadcasting feature.
  • Elastos SDK. Conventional applications can extend their capability through an SDK. The SDK includes modules for authentication, trust records, and other typical blockchain functions. The vision is for elastos to become a blockchain aircraft carrier which will support large-scale decentralized applications.

Speaker: Mr Rong Chen, Founder of Elastos and Director of Tsinghua University iCentre

Rong is a professor for postgraduate modules in Cyber Intelligent Economy and Blockchain at Tsinghua University. He is also one of the most respected Tsinghua alumni. Rong worked at Microsoft from 1992 to 2000. During his time there, he led the teams of Microsoft Research OS, IE3 ActiveX, Ole Automation, .COM, and .NET. He proposed various new ideas on the technology of Operating Systems 30 years ago, but failed to see progress until the launch of Windows 10 and the development of blockchain. It was now possible to make an OS environment safer and more efficient. When he left Microsoft, Rong started working on the Elastos OS. Over the years, Elastos was financially supported by Foxconn, the Chinese Central Government, Tsinghua University, and most recently, a tokensale. Rong had been invited by the former Premiere of China to speak at the Great Hall of the People about his work on Operating Systems.

Speaker: Mr Kevin Zhang, Head of the Elastos Developers Community

Kevin Zhang graduated from Tsinghua University, Beijing, in 1994, with a B.Eng degree. He has dedicated most of his life to software, besides being a full-stack developer, he is also a serial entrepreneur, has worked 5 years as a professional music producer and another 5 years as a consultant on Business Intelligence solutions, Big data and Telecommunication. His last job position before becoming part of the Elastos team was the CTO role for iHealth Labs in the US.
