PROJECT OVERVIEW

  • Raised $9.3MM via private & public token sales from September 2017 to March 2018
  • Public blockchain network which aims to achieve scalability while maintaining decentralization
  • Utilizes Proof of Stake Voting ("PoSV") to incentivize token-holders to play an active part in staking

RECENT NEWS

  • August 2019: Mainnet launch for TomoZ, an on-chain protocol that allows users to pay transaction fees with TRC-21 tokens
  • June 2019: A cross-chain bridge was created to bring TOMO tokens to Binance Chain
  • May 2019: Constant, a P2P lending platform, announces support for TOMO tokens
  • May 2019: Partnership with Contentos to explore decentralized advertising
  • April 2019: Release of TomoChain Client v1.4

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • PoSV Consensus: A Proof of Stake based blockchain protocol with a fair voting mechanism, rigorous security guarantees and fast finality.
  • Double Validation: When a block is created by a masternode, it must be verified by another masternode that is randomly selected before being added to the blockchain.
  • TomoZ: Zero friction protocol which allows users to pay transaction fees with TRC-21 tokens.
  • TomoX: A secure and efficient relayer-masternode decentralized cryptocurrency exchange protocol.

WHAT IS TOMOCHAIN?

TomoChain is a public blockchain which aims to achieve high transaction speeds without compromising decentralization. TomoChain does this by utilizing a consensus method called Proof of Stake Voting ("PoSV") which incentivizes token-holders to play an active part in staking across a network of 150 masternodes, and to monitor their performance and governance actively.

Project Mission

TomoChain's vision is to become the infrastructure of choice for the next-generation of global open finance. TomoChain aims to be a strong contender to attract further financial innovations in the crypto finance industry.

Project Value Proposition

With its PoSV consensus mechanism, TomoChain provides a much faster and cheaper way to build financial dApps and issue tokens, while keeping the network decentralized and secure.

Token Governance & Use of Funds

As of August 2019, TomoChain has used approximately 50% of TGE funds according to the allocations below:

  • 50% Product and engineering
  • 30% Marketing and business development
  • 20% Administration

TomoChain holds most of its funds in multi-sig wallets. Unlocking funds would require the approval of 2 high-level managers.

TOMO Token Release Schedule

The following chart represents the number and breakdown of all TOMO tokens that are to be released into circulation on a monthly basis.

TOMO Token Overview & Use Cases

TOMO is the native cryptocurrency of TomoChain and will be the reserve cryptocurrency for all third-party dApps running on TomoChain. Being the protocol token for the TomoChain infrastructure, TOMO will be needed by all parties utilizing TomoChain to build dApps or issue and integrate cryptographic tokens into their dApps.

In addition to the above, TOMO tokens will also be used as:

  • Funding for the development of TomoChain and its ecosystem (TomoScan, TomoMaster, TomoWallet, etc.)
  • Reward to incentivize the building of the TomoChain engine/ecosystem
  • Decentralized governance instrument of the TomoChain network

BLOCKCHAIN & NETWORK DATA

Masternodes

The TomoChain blockchain is produced and maintained by a maximum of 150 masternodes in a consistent manner through PoSV consensus mechanism. Masternodes store the entire blockchain state, propose blocks, and are required to lock up at least 50,000 TOMO tokens. Masternodes are selected by voting, which is done through the TomoMaster dApp.

Reward Mechanism

Since the block rewards in the Tomochain network is evenly distributed for each block regardless of the amount of stake a masternode might have, for each 900 blocks, a checkpoint block is created which contains no transactions and only rewards. To claim the rewards, the masternodes have to to scan all of the created blocks in this 900 blocks and count the number of signatures. The higher number of signatures one masternode has made, the more reward he earns out of this reward block.

Rewards in this reward block are distributed in the following manner:

  • Infrastructure Reward: 40% of rewards goes to masternodes.
  • Staking Reward: 50% of rewards goes to the pool of all voters. A voter will receive reward proportional to the amount of work the masternode he voted for has done over the last 900 blocks.
  • Foundation Reward: 10% of rewards goes to a special account controlled by the Masternode Foundation, a decentralized autonomous organization. The Masternode Foundation will be set up in 2020. All Foundation rewards will not be used until that time.

Double Validation Process

Similar to existing PoS-based blockchains, in the TomoChain network each block is created by a block producer (masternode). However, under PoSV consensus mechanism, TomoChain requires the signatures of two masternodes on a block in order to push a block to the blockchain. One masternode will be the block creator, the other masternode will be randomly selected to validate the block produced by the former masternode. blockchain

TomoChain aims to use this Double Validation technique to enhance the stability of the blockchain by diminishing the probability of producing "garbage" blocks while maintaining system security and consistency.
