In June 2018, near the time of the launch of the EOS Community Mainnet, ONO decided to use EOSIO software as the basis for its own chain, as described in the Whitepaper.
Serious testing of various scaling issues was performed using multiple test chains, including the Jungle testnet and the Kylin testnet, as well as private testnets. These tests included many items, especially a large number of users (ONO beta now has about 4.1M users, while EOS Mainnet is still less than 1M, so we tested up to 10M), storage of large content, such as photos and videos, chain based tracking of all user actions, etc.
From these tests, we determined that neither EOSIO software, nor any other existing public blockchain software, is capable right now to do all the things envisioned for the ONO blockchain in the Whitepaper. For instance, while EOSIO promised before launch to be able to so millions of transactions per second, it seems instead to be limited to an absolute maximum of about 4000 transactions per second.
We do expect that blockchain performce of EOSIO and opthers will continue to improved, and so will continue to design and implement the system with the view to move to such a system as it becomes available and stable.
In the meantime, the initial deployment of the ONOchain will be focussed on token handling and user security.All ONOT transactions in the app will be proxied through the ONO app servers to the ONOChain, where the transactions are recorded and inspectable. Users and exchanges can access ONOChain directly or via the app, or via block explorers.
For the time being, content will continue to be stored locally via traditional methods. Hooks will be added for pointers and hashing,so thath these may be recorded on the ONOChain.
As much as possible, ONOChain will use EOSIO directly. We intend to minimize changes, to ensure that as BlockOne and the Community add enhancements and improvements, we are best able to implement these. All such implementations are recoded on Github (https://github.com/onochat).
Some time after launching and stabilizing the app based tokens on the ONOChain, the Ethereum based erc20 ONOT contracts will be frozen and migrated to ONOChain. This will be done in coordination with all exchanges which handle ONOT.
