Web 3.0 or Decentralized Web (DWeb), is the promise of emancipating digital communication by reducing our reliance on centralized network infrastructure. The Nexus Protocol takes this a step further by creating decentralized reputation driven routing services, at the level of both hardware and software, providing an alternative to Internet Service Providers (ISPs). The Nexus Protocol is driven by a security focused operating system (LX-OS), utilizing the immutability of Nexus to verify it’s internal states, making it resistant to most known operating system level exploits.
The internet is a remarkable feat of engineering, however it fails to maintain both security and openness at the same time. As a step forward, Nexus has designed the ONE stack (Open Nexus Execution) that will support online services, verifying sources of information, through authenticated reputation, where the freedom of information is unhindered.
Traditionally, deploying an entire satellite constellation requires a significant amount of capital. Today, it is possible to create incentive-based systems using tokenization to crowdfund micro-satellites. Each constellation will be represented by a supply of tokens created on Nexus that manage ownership, and optional income and voting rights. Micro-satellites will be launched into Low Earth Orbit (LEO), will run Nexus’ operating system (LX-OS), and utilize reputation-based network services to protect against malicious entities attempting to monopolize the network.
Satellites will connect to phased array antennas, which are electrically steered and are capable of realizing high gains and mobility. These antennas can be installed on roof tops and on the top of vehicles. The antennas will connect to transceivers on the 5.8 GHz ISM (Industrial, Scientific, Medical) band, commonly used in Wi-Fi routers. The expansion of network hardware will be incentivized with revenue from engaging in geo-spatial contracts, for content delivery, edge computing, and routing services.
