The internet is global and people from all over the world are connected with each other. We pay, share data and communicate with each other over the internet. Most people believe these statements to be true but they are a mirage, something we want to see so badly that we are easily blinded to the reality of what governments, conglomerates and data barons want us to see.
nOS gives the cryptocurrency community the opportunity to change the world for the better. To make the internet how it was always intended to be. Are you interested in investing in a new, better, honest and transparent internet? If so, you have the opportunity with the nOS ICO to help make this vision a reality and invest in one of the biggest internet innovations ever.
Are you ready to take off the blindfold? Are you ready to invest in the ‘smart internet’ for the ‘smart economy’?
What’s The Problem nOS Is Solving?
Conglomerates and data barons sell us the lie of a connected online world. The people are not connected. Instead, we are each connected to these data merchants, who we involuntarily trust with everything we do online. Many people choose to stay blind to this truth until it directly, negatively affects them.
When it’s too late…
Cambridge Analytica harvested the personal data of 50 million US citizens and 1+ million Brits. Facebook was meant to be the custodian of this data and it was shared with a firm whose sole purpose was to manipulate free and fair democratic elections in the US. The people shared data and it was used to manipulate them to serve the interests of global elites.
If you believe in safeguarding democracy, then you should be supporting a world where conglomerates are not the hub of the internet. We need an internet where data is not used against the people to control them, to tell them what to think or what to do. The first step is to understand the problem and only then can you take action.
How Has It Come To This?
When we share data, it has to go through a conglomerate like Google and when we talk, what we say goes through companies like Facebook first. When we pay each other, we are not making a peer-to-peer transaction but paying the middle-men companies first. Because of how the internet works, we cannot see or control what happens to our data in the backend. Our data can be stored, sold, and altered without our consent. This problem will grow until these corporate monopolies own everything we know.
Now we have a way to fight back with nOS. The nOS project is the vision of a new, better, more transparent internet, one which adopts the NEO smart economy and aims to provide an internet based on safety and true honesty. If you want to support and potentially profit from the fight against the corporations, then you have the opportunity with the nOS ICO.
What Is nOS?
Powered by NEO, nOS will be the ‘smart internet for the smart economy’. This smart internet is built on the vision of cutting out corporate online monopolies, securing user data, transparency and honesty. It is being built to truly connect people from all over the world, without a data baron getting our data first and using it for their own means.
nOS aims to make this vision a reality by creating a web browser, an operating system, and a nOS app store. This project is trying to solve a global problem and because of this, it has the potential for mass adoption. Mass adoption of the new ‘smart internet’ would mean that users will not download apps from places like the Google App store, which is controlled by centralized data barons. Instead, the vision is that the nOS app store becomes to go to place for internet users and this will distribute NEO based decentralized applications.
Decentralization of applications means that we are fighting back against data harvesting and no one person or corporation can use this data against us. nOS is the movement and the project fighting back against corporations using people as puppets to further their goals and the goals of the global elite. To do so we need to rebuild the internet and that is the vision for nOS.
How Is nOS Creating The Smart Internet?
The backends of our current monopoly controlled internet are designed so we cannot see what happens to our data. This means companies like Facebook can store, sell or alter our data without our knowledge. With nOS, backends will be open to all. nOS decentralized applications will have open backends that are not only transparent but, crucially, the data cannot be changed as its stored on the blockchain.
NEO GAS will be the utility token that powers nOS apps. The token is transferred peer to peer, so there is no corporate middleman getting paid first. This means that we will all be connected with each other and can pay each other without using conglomerates as brokers.
Universal smart contracts will be used on nOS. This gives developers access to popular backend functions. Authority of the nOS platform will be decentralized. nOS tokens can be staked to get voting power and popular high-quality apps will be rewarded and become more visible to platform users. This means ranking on the nOS app store will be based on merit.
Who Are The Brains Behind The nOS ICO?
The nOS project is the brainchild of City of Zion developers. The nOS development team have plenty of developing experience and direct involvement in many major projects in the NEO smart economy:
- Dean van Dugteren: The founder of Click.DJ and VDT Network
- Jason Perry: Creator of NEO Ruby
- Matt Huggins: Lead developer at City of Zion and maintains Neon Wallet
The nOS ICO Details
The dates of the nOS ICO, funding goal, the number of publicly available tokens and white paper are still to be released.
What we do know is that to participate in the nOS ICO you will be trading NEO or NEO GAS for nOS tokens. If you want to get ready for the ICO, then you can stock up on some NEO on the Binance exchange. nOS will also trade under the ticker ‘NOS’ and will be issued as an NEP-5 token.
What is the nOS token? It is a utility token that powers the nOS platform. The token can be staked to gain voting power on the nOS platform. Developers staking tokens are rewarded with increased visibility on the app store. This means that there should be a strong use case for nOS tokens post-ICO and that should be good for the price.
nOS Token Details
In Q3 2018 nOS has scheduled a token generation event. There are 4 different stages to this process:
- Private Sale: The nOS private sale will be restricted to NEO partners, existing applications, and projects building on the NEO Smart Economy. Sorry guys, it’s unlikely you will get in at this stage.
- KYC Whitelisting: Interested investors will need to submit identification documents to participate in the token sale. Successfully passing the KYC check is a requirement to participate in the nOS ICO.
- Pre-Sale: This sale is reserved to active contributors to the nOS project. To qualify, you will need to create a functioning Proof of Concept (PoC) application on nOS, or make a contribution to the nOS codebase. Contributors must also actively engage with the community on the Discord chat and update the rest of the team on progress. Looking to get in on the pre-sale? This step by step guide shows you how to start creating your own app.
- Public Sale: The precise details on the public sale are still to be announced. The TotalCrypto Team will be keeping their ears close to the ground and let you know when there are updates.
The Investment Case For nOS
Like Ethereum, NEO is a decentralized application developer platform. NEO has been widely reported to have a working relationship with the Chinese government. NEO is also capable of processing 1,000 on-chain transactions per second Vs Ethereum’s 14, meaning apps built on NEO can run much faster.
nOS is attempting to build a new internet, one in which users are connected to each other and not connected to corporations. An internet that is free, fair, secure and user data cannot be changed for the benefit of others. In essence, nOS is trying to create the internet as it was meant to be. The TotalCrypto Team believes that internet users everywhere will start seeing the value of this new online landscape and will choose to take the nOS red pill. Internet users have been treated as puppets for too long and now is the time to take a stand.
Adoption of the nOS web browser means that increasing numbers of users will be introduced to the nOS app store. This provides the gateway to decentralized apps that have been sorely missing in the cryptocurrency space. All the apps offered will be built on the NEO blockchain and the increasing popularity of nOS will benefit NEO and strengthen its ecosystem.
We must remember that everything that is being worked on in the cryptocurrency space is worth nothing if the products and services being created are not used. nOS provides a solution to a trending problem and serves as a gateway into the ecosystem NEO is attempting to create. How much do you think the ‘smart internet for the smart economy’ could be worth if it succeeds? TotalCrypto bets it will many multiples on the ICO valuation.

TotalCrypto has seen the lies spread by data merchants that the world is connected. We are not connected. We are connected to data merchants who are using our data to benefit their businesses and political objectives. The words ‘democracy’ and ‘freedom’ are ideals we are all taught to value. We are told these ideas are widespread in the world. The people of this planet have a responsibility to open their eyes to what’s happening and fight to preserve our rights to democracy and freedom.
nOS gives us brave pioneers the opportunity to stand up to a system built by corporations, for corporations. To build a better, fairer world through an internet built on the ideals of transparency, safety, openness and true honesty in which internet users are not manipulated as puppets. All this is possible with the ‘smart internet’ for the ‘smart economy’. This vision is why TotalCrypto believes nOS is one of the best ICOs of 2018. Will you say ‘no’ to the current system and seize the opportunity to support nOS? You decide.
