In the first interview in this series, Ontology speaks with DuMonT.
I first heard about Ontology back in early 2018 when ONT was listed on exchanges. I was looking for promising projects, so I discovered Ontology which I recognized as quite unique, in terms of its vision and consensus mechanism, as well as its focus on decentralized identity and data.
As I was already impressed by the vision of Ontology, I wanted to engage more with the community so I joined its chat groups on Telegram where I discovered lots of amazing people. I was truly amazed by the quality…
In May of this year, the Republic of Ireland’s Health Service Executive (HSE), suffered a “catastrophic” cyberattack. In addition to directly causing the number of hospital appointments in some areas of the system to drop by 80%, the hackers also stole and shared sensitive medical and personal information of patients online as well as details of correspondence with patients. While three quarters of the HSE’s servers have been unlocked since the attack, the HSE’s CEO recently said that it will still be “many more weeks” before health services return to normal.
Last week, Ontology announced a partnership with BlockBank, an AI-powered crypto application that combines traditional mobile banking with cryptocurrency and blockchain. We are also continuing to promote our Harbinger Program v2 and are excited for new Harbingers to join us!
It has been another successful week at Ontology HQ! Ontology’s Head of Ecosystem Partnerships, Gloria Wu, attended a panel at the SME Finance Forum, this week. What’s more, our Chief of Technology, Ning Hu, attended the second Data Intelligence and Knowledge Service Seminar, managed by the Documentation and Information Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
In other big news, we are proud to celebrate the launch of our Harbinger Program v2. The Ontology team invites passionate supporters of Ontology to become our next Harbingers!
Ontology has become a truly global community, covering 30 languages across multiple countries and continents. Ontology’s global reach is, in part, thanks to our Harbingers, the exceptional leaders that help Ontology continue to grow its community and ecosystem, making it a leading blockchain for management of decentralized identities and data. Currently, we have 10+ Harbingers helping manage our communities across several platforms including Telegram, Discord, Reddit, Line, and Kakao.
Let’s take a tour of Ontology’s ecosystem with our Harbingers.
On June 30, 2018, Ontology MainNet version 1.0 officially launched. It represented a new generation of high-performance public blockchain, including complete…
We see that it was the third anniversary of your mainnet launch at the end of June, congratulations! Could you tell us a bit about why decentralized identity and data solutions have been the focus of Ontology’s vision over the past three years.
Since our MainNet launch three years ago, decentralized identity solutions and secure data management have become increasingly important. Every day, individuals make millions of transactions online, whether they be related to social media, banking, ecommerce, or work. Despite this increased digital migration, privacy and security have not advanced in tandem. …
A recent study on cybersecurity statistics revealed that data breaches exposed 36 billion records in the first half of 2020 alone. If we stop and think about that for a second, it is truly staggering. Users are currently the most vulnerable they have ever been, with the global pandemic exacerbating the risks of fraud as people are forced to increasingly operate online. With the migration of services online has come an increased responsibility to manage the way data is stored.
Traditionally, different sectors have used centralized paper or spreadsheets on internal computers to house information and data sets. However, as…
Harbinger: one that initiates a major change; a person or thing that originates or helps open up a new activity, method, or technology; pioneer (cited from Merriam-Webster Dictionary).

To celebrate the 3rd anniversary of our MainNet launch, we are excited to launch our Harbinger Program v2 to further expand and grow Ontology’s community and ecosystem around the world.
